Climate crisis. I haven't heard a single word about the devastation occurring in the USA by the new administration. INCOMPETENT!

January 23, 2016

The Southeast (click here) picked up the pieces on Monday after deadly tornadoes tore through the region, killing more people in one weekend than in all of last year, and officials called out for the federal government to urgently help their devastated communities.
At least 41 reported twisters ravaged the Southern states over the weekend, killing 19 people and destroying homes, CNN meteorologists reported. At least six people were believed to be missing in Georgia, including a 2-year-old boy who was caught in the tornado in Dougherty County, officials said....

Plural. Many tornadoes. Tornadoes don't happen as a single tornado anymore. They are either multiple tornadoes or twin tornadoes with a system that spans the troposphere and hemisphere. There is no such thing as a tornado anymore.

...The barreling twisters left people stunned and communities devastated. They reminded one survivor in Georgia of a scene from a horror movie.

"All you hear is people screaming, 'Help me, help me,' " said AJ Miley, a resident of the Sunshine Mobile Home Park in Georgia, according to CNN affiliate WSB-TV.

Devocheo Williams, also at the trailer park, said he saw people "tossed through the air," the TV station reported

"All I saw was a little girl flown up and thrown in a ditch. Three seconds later, the trailer got picked up off the ground and landed on top of the mother and son," Williams said....

While on the subject of Arizona.

This is a good definition of monsoon from Wikipedia.

Monsoon is traditionally defined as a seasonal reversing wind accompanied by corresponding changes in precipitation, but is now used to describe seasonal changes in atmospheric circulation and precipitation associated with the asymmetric heating of land and sea. Usually, the term monsoon is used to refer to the rainy phase of a seasonally changing pattern, although technically there is also a dry phase. The term is sometimes incorrectly used for locally heavy but short-term rains, although these rains meet the dictionary definition of monsoon.

The picture below is not of a monsoon. Monsoons happen with large amounts of rain. The picture below is a microburst.

Casa Grande, Arizona - The monsoon (click here) returned on Monday and brought the Valley rain and caused some damage and flooding.
Trees were knocked down and branches fell on several cars in the area of 38th Street and Indian School in Phoenix.
"It was really scary," Jennifer Egan, who was inside a house, said. "I don't think I've ever been so scared in Arizona with the monsoons because of the trees."
Egan said she could hear the large trees in her front yard breaking apart in the wind.
"I heard the trees falling, and I didn't know if it was going to go on the house" or through a window, she said. One branch clipped her roof.
The strong winds also damaged some apartments near 26th Street and Thomas Road. Five people, two cats, and a dog were forced out of the apartments. The Red Cross is helping them out.
The power of the storm also picked up a trampoline and threw it into a car near 32nd Street and Broadway Road....
...Phoenix Aviation Department said. The airport reported nearly 65 mph gusts. Officials there also reported hail. All three runways are now open....
Hail is a microburst, not a monsoon. The video is of a monsoon rain in Africa.

One death in Iowa as well.

Snow caused problems (click here) in the upper Midwest and accidents piled up as Winter Storm Leo moved east, and in Iowa, one death was reported on snowy, icy roads.

Officials announced some good news Wednesday morning: a stretch of Interstate 90 from Kadoka to Chamberlain, South Dakota – spanning more than 100 miles – was reopened, according to the state's Department of Transportation. The roadway was closed overnight due to dangerous travel conditions.

The storm system was responsible for several deaths in the West during its first stage, and Flagstaff, Arizona, reported nearly three feet of snow.


Snow piled up quickly in parts of Wisconsin Tuesday night and Wednesday morning, which led to numerous accidents in the southern portion of the state, reported....

If it isn't a haboob, it is threatening temperatures and snow.

Phoenix — Schools and government offices (click here) locked the doors and turned off the lights early on Monday in Flagstaff as another round of snow moved into the area.

All of Flagstaff Unified School District declared a snow day on Monday, while Northern Arizona University gave staying open the old college try before deciding to cancel all classes that began after noon....

This is an interesting video of the haboob on August 21, 2016. KINDLY NOTE: The dust storm does not develop out of no where. What is accompanying the dust storm or better said, what is accompanying the clouds and wind?

There isn't anything to comment about in regard to this new administration in Washington, DC. It is up to the Democrats to continue to bring information before the public. The DNC needs to reach low information voters. They are not unreasonable people. 

Someone who was dead set on voting for Trump stated at one point in the election, he was reconsidering his vote for Trump because he would not make a good diplomat. The low information voter was finally seeing the real purpose of the presidency and realized Trump did not fit the qualifications. The problem occurred when Comey subterfuged the Clinton campaign so late in the process. The problem was not achieving an educated public, it was all the other shenanigans that upended Secretary Clinton's election.

But, the mess that is the Trump administration is doing nothing more than bringing up old news and attempting to make it new again. It is pretending there is new power for the people with Trump. Not. It is nothing more than campaigning with government money. Why? Because there isn't anything for Trump to do. The employment rate hasn't been better, the deficit is the smallest in decades, the majority of American troops are out of Iraq and Trump has already handed over Syria to Russia.

There isn't anything to write about except the entry I made today regarding Palestine. Palestine has to bring the people now responsible for more aggression of taking land before the World Court. It has to be made clear there are people that are committing genocide, both cultural and otherwise, against the Palestinians. 

It is hideous to believe Israel will reward Palestine when the violence from Gaza stops. That is not what should be demanded. The West Bank should be secure, peaceful, with orchards of olives, happy farmers, educated children without fear of any settlement invasion. In that would be the perfect lesson for Gaza. When Gaza educates its children as the West Bank does and elevates their land to farms with happy farmers then Gaza will be at peace as well and have quality of life. THAT is the method forward to end the violence with Gaza, not allowing the West Bank as an example to increase the violence out of Gaza. 

Israel is inciting violence by it's mistreatment of the West Bank. At the rate the West Bank is being razed for Israeli settlements, it might be Gaza will be the only land the Palestinians can call a homeland.

But, from my perspective there isn't anything to write about. It is all old news unless someone wants me to count bodies daily of those succumbed to the climate crisis. I suppose I could do that.

When is the DNC going to learn the truth isn't good enough if no one hears it.

If anyone pays attention there is no truth to Trump's claims. He is lying. He is spending taxpayers' money to his lie as well. People don't like lies and they don't like government wasteful spending.

Days after being sworn in, (click here) President Trump insisted to congressional leaders invited to a reception at the White House that he would have won the popular vote had it not been for millions of illegal votes, according to people familiar with the meeting.

Trump has repeatedly claimed, without evidence, that widespread voter fraud caused him to lose the popular vote to Hillary Clinton, even while he clinched the presidency with an electoral college victory.

Two people familiar with the meeting said Trump spent about 10 minutes at the start of the bipartisan gathering rehashing the campaign. He also told them that between 3 million and 5 million illegal votes caused him to lose the popular vote.

The discussion about Trump's election victory and his claim that he would have won the popular vote was confirmed by a third person familiar with the meeting....

This is an attack against Secretary Hillary Clinton and women and any woman that wants to reach for the presidency of the USA. The message might be hideous and stupid, but, that doesn't matter if the country believes it.

The LOW INFORMATION VOTER is receiving a message to the extent the USA has been corrupted by the Democrats. What is the DNC doing about it? The DNC needs to place ads in tabloids and papers such as the Washington Times. It is a hideous thought, but, these are the voters that have caused the most incompetent man in the country to become president.

The DNC has to own the accusations and respond. Over. Over. And Over Again.

"The Undocumented" are hard workers and contribute hugely to the USA Economy. FACTS to back it up. Over. Over. And Over again.

"The Border Wall" is costing American jobs by shifting monies to an unnecessary pork project by the Republicans. Taxes paid by corporations are being used for an unnecessary border wall while the NATIONAL DEBT continues to grow in building the border wall over and over and over again. The desert sand swallows up the wall and it needs to be replaced over and over and over again.

Hello? None of that is a lie, but, it sure pisses me off.
