Posted by: thepinetree on 06/24/2019 08:14 PM
Washington, DC...This week, the House passed H.R. 3055, a bundle of appropriations bills referred to as a “minibus,” that includes several amendments on cannabis banking and other cannabis- related issues.

President Trump at Signing of Executive Order on Iran Sanctions

Posted by: thepinetree on 06/24/2019 06:48 PM
Washington, DC...Okay, thank you very much. In a few moments, I’ll be signing an executive order imposing hard-hitting sanctions on the Supreme Leader of Iran and the Office of the Supreme Leader of Iran, and many others. Today’s action follows a series of aggressive behaviors by the Iranian regime in recent weeks, including shooting down of U.S. drones. They shot down the drone. It’s — I guess everyone saw that one. And many other things. They’ve done many other things aside from the individual drone. You saw the tankers, and we know of other things that were done also, which were not good and not appropriate.

Posted by: thepinetree on 06/24/2019 04:47 PM
Murphys, CA...A really sad update from the Murphys Fire Protection District. During the concert at Ironstone on Saturday Evening a patient went done and emergency personal performed extended CPR on the patient awaiting an ambulance. From MPFD that was originally posted on their Facebook page..."**Stolen Uniform *** While tending to a patient at the Ironstone concert last night, one of our firefighters had his dress uniform, including his badge stolen by a concert goer. Due to the nature of the emergency, he had removed the button up shirt to keep from overheating. Why would someone steal the uniform of someone working their hardest to save a life?? I'm beside myself. If anyone saw anything or might know of it's whereabouts, we would really appreciate it's return.** We exhausted all other options, including checking trash cans and other possibilities with the assistance of the Event staff before making the Sheriff's report or posting here.**" If anyone has any information please call MFPD at (209) 728-3864

San Jose Girl Escapes River With Help from Tuolumne Deputy, Search & Rescue & Pinecrest Fire.

Posted by: thepinetree on 06/24/2019 03:18 PM
Dardanelle, CA...From the Tuolumne Sheriff's Dept..."Just before 4:45 this afternoon, our communication center received a call for help for a girl who fell into the river. The 15 year old girl from San Jose was camping with family at the Brightman Flat Campground in Dardanelle, and was fishing near the water when slipped on a rock and fell in. She was quickly swept down river and was luckily able to catch herself on the log pictured below. Bystanders went out on the log to try to help the girl and keep her calm until additional help arrived. They used ropes and stood downstream for safety. Deputy Boujikian, our Search and Rescue team, and Pinecrest Fire personnel, responded to the river and were able to get a helmet and life vest to the girl. She was able to pull herself along the log far enough for rescue personnel to get her out to safety. Medics on scene evaluated the girl, who thankfully only suffered some scrapes and bruises.

Michael R. Pompeo at the Release of the 2018 Annual Report on International Religious Freedom

Posted by: thepinetree on 06/24/2019 09:54 AM
Washington, DC...Good afternoon, everyone. I’m proud to be here today to speak about the State Department’s ongoing mission to advance international religious freedom. This mission is not just a Trump administration priority – it’s a deeply personal one. For many years, I was a Sunday school teacher and a deacon at my church. And that might sound unusual to a lot of folks inside the Beltway. But I am one of millions of Americans, and billions of people across the world, who live in the knowledge of a higher power. I often humbly reflect on how God’s providence has guided me to this office, to defend this cause. I think about how, as an American, I’ve been blessed to enjoy the unfettered exercise of religious freedom, our first liberty here in the United States.

President Trump Tweets Wistfully For Helpful Federal Reserve

Posted by: thepinetree on 06/24/2019 08:22 AM
WAshington, DC....The latest from the Presidential Fingers on the Fed.."Despite a Federal Reserve that doesn’t know what it is doing - raised rates far too fast (very low inflation, other parts of world slowing, lowering & easing) & did large scale tightening, $50 Billion/month, we are on course to have one of the best Months of June in US history. Think of what it could have been if the Fed had gotten it right. Thousands of points higher on the Dow, and GDP in the 4’s or even 5’s. Now they stick, like a stubborn child, when we need rates cuts, & easing, to make up for what other countries are doing against us. Blew it!"

President Trump Wants China, Japan & Others to Help Protect Tankers in Middle East

Posted by: thepinetree on 06/24/2019 08:15 AM
Washington, DC....The Latest from President Trump on Iran Via Twitter..."China gets 91% of its Oil from the Straight, Japan 62%, & many other countries likewise. So why are we protecting the shipping lanes for other countries (many years) for zero compensation. All of these countries should be protecting their own ships on what has always been a dangerous journey. We don’t even need to be there in that the U.S. has just become (by far) the largest producer of Energy anywhere in the world! The U.S. request for Iran is very simple - No Nuclear Weapons and No Further Sponsoring of Terror!"

Arnold, CA…Mornings with the One Percent™ is live weekday mornings from 7-10am.

"Big Mama" is the Calaveras County Animal Services Pet of the Week Pet of the Week

Posted by: thepinetree on 06/23/2019 03:01 PM
San Andreas, CA...Meet Big Mama, a truly amazing cat. She weighs in at an impressive 15 pounds, but it’s her gorgeous fluffy coat that makes her appear twice that size. Having no tail, Big Mama is a manx-type cat. What she lacks in a tail she more than makes up for in having six toes on each paw, a unique trait that makes her a polydactyl. Big Mama’s long coat means she will require regular grooming though she keeps herself very neat and does not seem to shed much. Big Mama is also very gentle, super friendly and always up for meeting new people and other feline-friendly kitties.
