Coronavirus: Gavin Newsom says California has no restrictions preventing Pac-12 football’s restart

Governor Gavin Newsom on Wednesday said there is nothing in the California guidance to prevent Pac-12 teams from playing, a statement that seemingly contradicts his own rules. “There is nothing in the state guidelines that denies the Pac-12 from having conference games,” Newsom said in response to a question from the Bay Area News Group. “There is nothing that denies the games from occurring.” Newsom said he spoke this morning with Pac-12 commissioner Larry Scott. “I want to make this crystal cl...

Rain Could Bring Relief To Thousands Of Firefighters Battling West Coast Blazes

(CNN) — Weeks of dry, hot weather have fueled historic wildfires along the West Coast that have killed more than 34 people, and reduced thousands of homes to embers. Firefighters have been battling blazes in the region, which have consumed more than 4.7 million acres, as dry grass and high winds have created tinderbox conditions. But rain this week could bring much needed relief to some parts of the Northwest, giving firefighters time to gain headway against the deadly flames. Red flag warnings ...

‘Democrat Voters Against Joe Biden’ Group Has Trump Fanatics, a Psychic, but No Actual Dems

Trump blames California — again — for fires, blames Democrats for protests and street violence

LOS ANGELES — President Donald Trump reiterated Tuesday that California is responsible for its raging fires. He said in the course of a wide-ranging 47-minute telephone interview on Fox & Friends that there are forests throughout the world, some abutting cities, with even more “explosive” trees than California’s dead trees, “but no fires.” The president has said in the past that California should do a better job sweeping leaves off forest floors as a fire-prevention strategy.

In the scramble to blame the west-coast fires on Trump, the NYT says Trump "scorns science."

The words appear on the front page, "Trump Scorns Science as Fires Rage; Biden Calls Him 'Climate Arsonist'":You can see the idea they're using: "Climate took center stage in the election as President Trump denied global warming had any role and Joe Biden said this denial had fed the destruction." The NYT is saying that the failure to concede that global warming had some role in the fires is a rejection of science. And I guess we're expected to see Joe Biden as a science devotee for saying the f...
