Los Angeles is on fire tonight. The videos shown in this article from The Daily Mail show drivers on the 405. I used to make that commute every Monday through Friday and the footage is terrifying. I’m concerned about my friends who live in and around those areas and one of my favorite cities of all time. God bless Los Angeles and please keep its people safe.

Drivers on their way to work in Los Angeles were faced with terrifying scenes along a major freeway after the fifth California wildfire this week left the hillside next to their road ablaze.
The inferno – named the Skirball Fire – has consumed more than 50 acres of land and threatens LA’s exclusive Bel Air neighborhood, UCLA and the Getty Center for the arts alongside the I-405 freeway.
The Trumpster is Strong in Lassen County
President Trump’s Support in Lassen County is Yuge!
Lassen County is proving to be a Trump stronghold. Not that it matters in the long run since California is perpetually blue, but for the more sensible folks in the Greater Communist Country of California, at least there are some pockets of #resistance still proud and strong. After the passage of the phenomenal tax bill, Trump’s popularity will likely grow in the coming months and years.
Good on you, Lassen County!
SUSANVILLE, CALIFORNIA —
Major polls show that more than half of American voters disapprove of President Trump’s performance in office, with the president’s approval ratings ranging from 33 percent to 44 percent in national surveys. Trump remains popular, however, in many rural areas, including Lassen County. This sparsely populated region in northeastern California defied the state’s liberal tilt and gave Trump 72 percent of its vote in the election, a 51-point margin over rival Hillary Clinton. And people here say they don’t believe the national polls.
“I think Trump’s doing a fantastic job,” said rancher Jeff Hemphill, a member of the five-member county board of supervisors. Hemphill raises cattle and chicken, and grows hay. He says that Trump understands the concerns of rural voters.
Hemphill complains about high fuel taxes in rural California, where people routinely travel long distances for work or shopping. He helps his cousin make the 80-minute drive to Reno, Nevada, for ongoing cancer treatments, and he is frustrated with the limited medical services in his community. He also chafes at regulations on everything from guns to the environment, which he says make life difficult for ranchers.
