Oh no! Pelosi may be forced to take some of her own liberal medicine

One thing you have to love about progressive socialists is their hypocrisy – which even extends to the water with which they brush their teeth.

On the subject of water, I’ve been out to Fresno, California several times and it is an incredible agricultural hub providing a bounty of food products. But Fresno’s farmers have a big problem: they’re being starved for water at the benefit of the liberal hypocrites living in the liberal bastion of the San Francisco bay area.

As reported by the Washington Times, “The Endangered Species Act (ESA) has wreaked havoc for decades on rural communities, but a newly filed lawsuit could force San Francisco urbanites like House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi to share their pain. A federal complaint filed this week contends that the Hetch Hetchy Project, which supplies water to San Francisco and the Bay Area, has unfairly enjoyed an exemption from the “severe cutbacks” required in rural California in order to save endangered fish species.”

In California state progressive socialists have punished their own agriculture industry over specified “endangered species.” Liberal progressives want to spread the wealth but they’re not so eager to spread the water – which results in higher food produce products.

The Times reports that “Craig Manson, who heads the Center for Environmental Science, Accuracy and Reliability (CESAR) in Fresno, said the lawsuit is aimed at addressing the “double standard” that forces farmers to give up water in the name of species conservation — without requiring Bay Area residents to do the same.”

“The Hetch Hetchy Project at Yosemite National Park diverts water from the Tuolumne River dam to a pipeline that sends water 167 miles away to San Francisco. Without that diversion, about 15 percent more water would flow to the Sacramento Delta, which is critical habitat for threatened fish like the delta smelt, the green sturgeon and several species of salmon, according to the lawsuit. The Fish and Wildlife Service and National Marine Fisheries Service have ordered “severe cutbacks” in the amount of water provided to the Central Valley in order to protect the fish habitat, says the lawsuit, but those agencies “have required no such cutbacks for the Hetch Hetchy Project diversions.”

Imagine the insanity: we starve our farmers of water to save some little fish while at the same time, water is diverted to provide a clean drinking water source for the “special” people in San Francisco. You think the fact Nancy Pelosi lives there has anything to do with this? And the second and third order effects are that farmers struggle to produce crops with less water and the increased cost is passed onto consumers.

Remember when Barack Obama went out to California during a drought and addressed global warming, climate change, or whatever the progressive socialists are calling it today? I remember he then went back to playing golf — which he does a lot — at some golf course, which was being watered. Nope, you just cannot make this up.

Once upon a time there was a fella named John Edwards who wanted to be president. He popularized a typical progressive socialist line — two Americas. Perhaps there are indeed two Americas; the America of hard working middle income families and the one of political and entertainment elites. If you take the political influence of the Central Valley and stack it up against that of Los Angeles and San Francisco, guess who loses? And ultimately so does America, but then hey, the progressive socialists feel better and they have nice water — and emotionally they’re content knowing they saved a fish.

“San Francisco is politically powerful in California, and they have been able to fend off Hetch Hetchy lovers for years,” said Mr. Manson. “If that valley, the Hetch Hetchy Valley, were anyplace else, it would not have been flooded in the first place. It just goes to show people are wedded to their own interests even if it goes against their philosophical leanings.”

Therein lies the true essence of progressive socialism — very flexible principles – or should I say the absence of same?

California is a textbook example of what happens when progressive socialists govern. Water is diverted from a key agricultural basin to save a fish, so it can ultimately be diverted almost 170 miles to make people happy. This is the height of hypocrisy, and this is the Democrat party: a far Left progressive socialist mosh pit.

50 years ago I read an article about desalinization of sea water. Recently I saw where Israel has been doing this for years and have turned arid desert into a lush homeland. Unless my geography is wrong, there is a large ocean to the west of California. Why are they destroying their agricultural base? Where are the illegal immigrants going to work? Do they just want to invite them in and put them on welfare? I’m trying to understand liberal logic here.

Elvaria
Guest

Israel gets lots of its water from the Sea of Galilee, which is FRESH water, they contain much of their RAIN water, and from 1998 – 2002 the big drought brought much of the water from desalinization but that is NOT all it does for water.

Top down, bottom up. What works pull it down and build it back with inferior products with control by those who want power to give jobs, charge for products, and divy out a big portion for themselves and scatter the rest to those who do the work while sending jobs to foreign countries and allowing non-citizens to have jobs while citizens in America have none. Break America seem to be their rallying call.America ‘root hog or die.’

It’s probably more about turning the fertile land *20%+ of US food, once* to windmill & solar panel farms. You just can’t see the future like a progressive.

Stealing water from Central California is much cheaper for SF and LA than desalinating water. Always, follow the money.

I do agree with most of what you say HOWEVER – PLEASE understand “America” is THREE continents, North, Central, and South. NORTH has three COUNTRIES Canada, Mexico AND the UNITED STATES!

That is obammy’s number one criteria when he was elected ” TO DESTROY THE USA FROM WITH IN” and to put us “AS A 3RD WORLD COUNTRY”.

I doubt they would cut water there, if she has the vinyards You know how those elitists think that they are special and all. Now I know why Pelosi acts like she has been drinking and says the stupidist things. She is tasting her own wine.

Thank you. The unfairness of this issue to the real people of California is just stunning, yet Pelosi, Feinstein, Boxer, Jerry Brown and many other liberal politicians over the years have adamantly refused to discuss it because the thought that San Francisco should share any environmental pain is just out of the bounds of their conception.

Gotta love me some Pelosi. From lecturing church leaders on morals to playing pseudo Mama Grizzly regarding her concern for the welfare of the vagabond urchin tsunami at our southern border.

Yet, kidnap or behead a few thousand in Africa or the Middle East….. not a peep.

Instead of depleting the resource , destroying ecosystems and putting the cost of it off onto those who produce the food and fiber this nation needs , why not do something sensible ? Use nuclear energy to desalinate the water needed for people , agriculture and industry . Restore the fisheries that were worth millions before they were ruined , and that would be priceless , now . Validate your 2nd Amendment Rights . Carry

Can anyone tell me how to get the advertisements-including site promotions, such as “archived articles”-moved so it does not cover the right side of my screen? This has been a problem for me every time I open an article from A. West face book page.

Elvaria

go into settings and you’ll find what you need. This happened to me too

Precioso
Guest
On some web pages with advertisement, usually on a column on the right side of the screen, one can simply narrow the window of the browser, such that the advertisements get blocked out. Of course, advertisements provide some cash to the author of the web page. Sometimes the advertisement is contrary to the content/stand of the web page, and sometimes semi-pornographic to catch the attention. Advertisement should be consistent with the belief system of this web page, and I hope some software programmer soon starts an advertisement project that shows proper advertisement according to the web page author’s morality.

Of course, Pelosi has little to do directly with this topic, but the name catches the eye. The name Pelosi is always associated with a good laugh, in my experience. Somehow, there are voters who want her as a Rep. to the U.S. Congress, so they are just as crazy (or call themselves gay, same thing. At least we agree on something – they are too gay.) As to water, California already grabs water form all over, and therefore its cities cannot grow much more. They need the Fresno Valley to grow their produce cheaply. There will be many unfair… Read more »

I also remember that fish that pelosi, walters, obammy was trying to save, but they couldn’t put the water in another stream so the farmers could have it for their crops. This was the most disgusting thing that was so wrong. I just as soon get my fresh fruits and vegetables from Calif. then from Mexico. The West is a big desert and they have less water then the East. h. reid fights Colorado, Utah for it’s water in Vegas and the area, but if it doesn’t snow in the mountains you don’t get water.

I agree with you. This thing about water surplus, from rainfall, melted snow, or underground is going to be a more and more political issue in California. Human beings can do without eating for weeks (called “fasting”), but cannot do without water for a week. Water is required to raise crops – nobody would argue with that, and human beings cannot do without eating either crops or animals that feed on crops. There’s no way out of it. We are 65 to 75% water, easily dry out; and yet: we cannot live submerged in water, especially salty water. California has… Read more »

I don’t go anywhere to get my fruit, except grocery stores and organic grocery stores. I would not go to Mexico for anything. When they release OUR MARINE then maybe I may go down. I live in the West. Sometimes they will have Florida fruit such as grapfruit, etc. I have been in Florida, but I grew up in Calif. I don’t live there any more.

Might want to think twice about wanting to get produce from California or the West Coast of any North American or South American Country. I don’t have the link, but the West Coast of BC is virtually dead from the Fukoshima spill/fallout! This is from almost a year ago. Not professionally done, but I believe this is the Truth. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B4NRdbkGM_8

The stores haven’t been getting to much fruits from Calif., but they have from Mexico and Central Mexico. I order my fruit from southern Calif, but in land quite a ways. They get their water from the Colorado Water.

Brad Sorrow

Lets look back to the late 1970’s and early 1980’s when an almost completed TVA nuclear power plant at Phipps Bend , TN was abandoned after countless tens of millions of dollars had already been spent because some naturist nut job became infurriated that the snail darter fish that lived in that river would not survive the rise in water temp. Guess nobody thought about fish being mobile and able to move down or up the river to find “comfortable” water!

I live in Northern California near Folsom Lake, one of Nor cal’s largest reservoirs, which currently looks more like a lunar landscape than it does a lake due to severe drought. But it’s not just the SF Bay Area taking our water, the California Aqueduct (built by Edmond G.

Sounds typical….NIMBY Liberals! I say No pool water, no golf course water, no hot tub water, no ornamental fountain water, no lawn water….that should save the fish and the farmers. Want water to cool off? go to the beach….California has plenty of ocean coast. These liberals say fish when it come to fish or farmers….I say let them live in the dry brown environment they would be in without their irrigation. That saves the fish and feeds the folks….Feeding the people is more important than rich people’s lawns golf courses and swimming pools….!
