Tuolumne, Calaveras, Eastern Stanislaus and Eastern San Joaquin Counties Burn Permit Suspension Lifted

San Andreas, CA...Effective Tuesday, November 27, 2018 at 8:00 AM the burn permit suspension in Tuolumne, Calaveras, Eastern Stanislaus and Eastern San Joaquin Counties will be lifted. CAL FIRE Tuolumne-Calaveras Unit Chief Josh White is formally cancelling the bum permit suspension and advises that those possessing current and valid agriculture and residential burn permits can now resume burning on permissible bum days. Agriculture bums must be inspected by CAL FIRE prior to burning until the end of the peak fire season. Inspections may be required for bums other than agriculture bums as well. This can be verified by contacting your local Air Quality Management District.

CAL FIRE bum permits will be required until the end of peak fire season. While cooler temperatures have helped to diminish the threat of wildfire, we are still in our fifth year of drought. Property owners and residents are asked to use caution while conducting debris or agriculture burns. Follow all guidelines provided and maintain control of the fire at all times. Individuals can be held civilly and/or criminally liable for allowing a fire to escape their control and/or bum onto neighboring property.

Residents wishing to burn MUST verify it is a permissive burn day for their zone prior to burning.
Calaveras County: (209) 754-6600 Tuolumne County: (209) 533-5598 San Joaquin and Stanislaus Counties: (877) 429-2876

    Liberal Democrats are Socialists.
    Nazis are Socialists.
    One of the most well known political parties of the 20th century which was socialistic was the National Socialist German Workers' Party (Nazi Party).
    Socialism is a liberal economic system with state ownership or control of the all the major means of production and distribution of goods and services, like Healthcare.
    Socialism is the economic system imposed by Communism, but another one of the most well-known political parties of the 20th century which was socialistic was the National Socialist German Workers' Party (Nazi Party) which was headed by the evolutionary racist Adolf Hitler.
    The points raised in the Nazi platform demand an increase in taxes to support them. Liberalism today demands heavy progressive and graduated income taxes.
    Liberalism today demands a "death tax" on anyone inheriting an estate and Central control of the financial system.
    Central control of the press. Liberals today demand control or suppression of talk radio and Fox News.
    Central control of education, with an emphasis on doing things their way. Liberals today are doing things their way in our schools.
    ANTIFA Democrats want to deny your First Amendment Rights to Free Speech.
    Liberal Democrats are The Nazis repackaged. #VoteThemOut2020

        Obama Used Tear Gas At Least 80 Times at Border
        Under the Obama Administration, U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) law enforcement officials, including Border Patrol agents, utilized tear gas against migrants at or near the border at least 80 times between FY2012 and early FY2017.
        CBP officials reported the use of tear gas and pepper spray to push back “assaultive” caravan migrants attempting to enter the U.S. illegally on Sunday. The agency began using these particular sprays during the Obama administration in 2010.
        Breitbart News confirmed the CBP began using tear gas (2-chlorobenzylidene malononitrile – CS) in 2010, though the available usage data initiates in FY2012.
        “CBP takes Sunday’s employment of use-of-force very seriously. CBP reviews and evaluates all uses of force incidents to ensure compliance with policy,” a CBP spokesman told Breitbart News in response to an inquiry. “Over 1,000 individuals who were part of the so-called caravan attempted to cross illegally into the U.S. by breaching sections of the fence and using vehicle lanes in and near the San Ysidro Port of Entry. This group ignored law enforcement agencies in Mexico and assaulted U.S. Federal Officers and Agents assigned to respond to the situation in San Diego.”
        “As a response to the assaults and to defuse this dangerous situation, trained CBP personnel employed less-lethal devices to stop the actions of assaultive individuals attempting to break into the U.S.,” the spokesman continued. “CBP has been preparing for weeks for events like the one on Sunday. We have seen the use of violence by members of this so-called caravan who have attacked law enforcement personnel in Guatemala, Mexico and now the U.S. CBP will consider using all approved and available resources to protect travelers, caravan members, and our agents and officers.”
        The CBP use of force reports show CS tear gas used 126 times since 2012. Officials utilized pepper spray a total of 540 times during that same period.
        The current CBP Use of Force Policy handbook (dated May 2014) requires all officers and agents to be trained in the use of all weapons utilized in operations, including less than lethal devices, such as these types of sprays. It also requires the officers and agents to be exposed to the sprays as part of the course of instruction.
        During a telephone conference call with news media on Monday, CBP Commissioner Kevin K. McAleenan said, “Yesterday, U.S. Customs and Border Protection agents and officers in San Diego effectively managed an extremely dangerous situation involving over 1,000 individuals who sought to enter the U.S. unlawfully in large groups. They did so safely and without any reported serious injuries on either side of the border.”
        “As we’ve articulated for several weeks, we have been concerned about the size of the caravan, its primarily single-adult composition, and the aggressive and assaultive behavior at both the Honduras-Guatemala border and the Guatemala-Mexico border,” the commissioner continued. “U.S. government officials have noted the presence of criminals in the group, and the Government of Mexico has arrested over 1,000 caravan members for criminal violations in Mexico.”

      The Obama Administration had to use Non Lethal Measures on the Southern Border in the exact same manner as the Trump Administration has had to now only when Obama had to do this the Liberal Progressive Socialist Democrats remained silent on the issue.
      So why was it ok for one President to do this yet not another. Same issue facing America just one President was a radical Liberal and the one now a Conservative. More proof Liberal Democrats in Elected Offices and not in Elected offices are true hypocrites. #VoteThemOut2020 #RED2020 #RemoveAllDemocrats2020

    You’re an idiot. Not control burning and logging are the reasons why California is up in flames. Thank the Sierra club for all the lives and homes lost in these fires. Indians burned off the land every fall and had much to eat from it as that brought more wildlife.
