Yosemite National Park To Remain Open During Government Shutdown ~ Rep. Tom McClintock CA-04

Posted by: thepinetree on 01/19/2018 08:12 PM
Roseville, CA...The House yesterday passed a bill to continue to fund the government through February 16th to accommodate ongoing discussions over budget caps, immigration policy and other issues. If Senate Democrats use the Senate cloture rule to prevent the bill from being taken up, the government will shut down at midnight on January 19th. The vendors, visitors and gateway communities to our national parks suffered enormously during the government shutdown in 2013 because of deliberate actions by the Obama administration. The administration ordered businesses in the parks to cease operations, cancelled long-standing tourist reservations, barricaded park entrances and even blocked turn-out lanes overlooking the Yosemite Valley. The shutdown required none of these measures.

Posted by: thepinetree on 01/19/2018 11:43 AM
Sonora, CA...On January 18, 2018, at approximately 1123 hours, CHP Officer Gowin was on duty in a marked CHP patrol vehicle traveling southbound on Stockton Road, approaching State Route 49. A 1995 Honda CBR 600 motorcycle, driven by Christopher Rommel, was traveling directly in front of the State Vehicle and was exceeding the posted speed limit. Rommel turned southbound on State Route 49 and Officer Gowin activated the emergency lights and siren to make an enforcement stop. Rommel looked over his shoulder at the patrol vehicle and immediately accelerated and began passing traffic, crossing double yellow lines into the opposing lane. The reckless driving exhibited by the Rommel posed a grave risk to the motoring public.

Sen. Jeff Flake...Reflexive “Fake News” Claims Not Good For Democracy. Use Gives License to Authoritarian Leaders Suppressing Free Speech Abroad

Posted by: thepinetree on 01/17/2018 08:48 PM
Washington, DC...U.S. Sen. Jeff Flake (R-Ariz.) today spoke on the Senate floor warning of the danger to democracy around the world posed by political leaders denying shared truths and reflexively dismissing facts as “fake news”: “2017 was a year which saw the truth – objective, empirical, evidence-based truth – more battered and abused than any other in the history of our country, at the hands of the most powerful figure in our government. The impulses underlying the dissemination of such untruths are not benign. They have the effect of eroding trust in our vital institutions and conditioning the public to no longer trust them. The destructive effect of this kind of behavior on our democracy cannot be overstated.
