Let’s Get Right To It…
Opinion by Consumer Advocate Tim Bolen
The “fake drought” in California, over the last eight years of the Obama “Sustained Development (Agenda 21 globalism)” Regime damaged California in horrible ways – and it was intentional.
And it’s over. Trump stopped it.
USA Today Said it Best…
On February 16th, 2017 the publication said:
The “biggest storm of the winter” is poised to slam into southern California on Friday and Saturday, bringing drenching rain, heavy mountain snow and howling winds — and also taking a massive chunk out of the region’s lingering drought.
Floods, mudslides, rockslides, travel delays and power outages are all possible, the National Weather Service warned.
It will likely be the strongest storm in the past six years and potentially as far back as 2004 or 1995, the weather service in Los Angeles wrote in an online forecast.
There is a silver lining to the storm —it will take another big chunk out of the drought over Southern California, AccuWeather said. “The storm is good news for California, except for the flooding,” said NOAA meteorologist Anthony Artusa.
The winter has already been one for the record books in the state. Since Oct. 1, it’s been the second-wettest water year to date in California, according to Paul Iñiguez, a weather service meteorologist in Phoenix. California’s “water year” runs from October through September. The weekend storm could easily push it to the wettest water year on record, Iñiguez tweeted.
The “Fake Drought” Nearly Destroyed California…
For eight years it never stopped. Every morning the planes came, spraying for hours, until an oily chemical haze covered California. EVERY DAY. And, the rain stopped.
WHY Was This Being Done?
Globalism – the intentional destruction of the US economy in favor of other countries’ interests. Let me give you an example.
The Publication TakePart wrote a 2014 article that says it all about what happened to the California Avocado Industry.
In an article titled “Kiss Your Guacamole Good-Bye: Drought-Stricken California Farmers Stop Growing Avocados” it explains:
When Chipotle warned investors back in March that it might suspend serving guacamole at its restaurants if avocado prices rose because of the California drought, climate change hit home for chip-and-dip lovers, who took to Twitter in distress.
It takes 74 gallons of water to produce one pound of avocados—and drought-stricken California produces 95 percent of the avocados grown in the United States. No wonder Chipotle’s bean counters are worried.
One-third of the state’s avocados are grown in San Diego County, which has some of the highest water prices in the state. In Valley Center, a town that is home to many family farms, avocado growers have seen water rates rise steeply in recent years—so much so that irrigating their groves has become more expensive than the price they get for selling their avocados.
Water isn’t the only challenge. University of California Cooperative Extension farm adviser Gary Bender points out that avocado growers have been hit by a triple whammy: rising fertilizer costs, spikes in water rates, and stagnant wholesale prices owing to competition from cheap imports from Peru, Chile, and Mexico.
This has forced many small farmers to shut off the water and let their groves go dry.
Cheap Imports From Peru, Chile, and Mexico?
2016 brought us three dollar ($3.00) avocados, ugly little things, grown only-god-knows-where, and probably sprayed with DDT (other countries DO NOT have our rules).
Not surprising to me is that San Diego County, and California Farmers in general, are Republicans in a liberal Democrat controlled State. Would the liberals cut off income for Republicans?
In a heartbeat. They are already trying to take control of their children away with Senate Bill 18 – so they can put them into socialist schools and train them to explore the thirty four different genders they offer “safe spaces” for.
I’m Fed Up with Agenda 21 Promoters…
I like America. Like Donald, I’m NOT interested in lowering American’s standard of living to accommodate the wants and needs of the elite.
I live in California. I DO NOT like what the liberal Democrats have done here, and across the nation.
We have just started to do what needs to be done to repair America. Now, we need to point fingers and name names – and criminally prosecute.
