Yes, It's a wonderful, wonderful world word. We're gonna be talking about a guy from Portland cause that's near Clackamas County. Hey, was driving a Volkswagen Jetta and you know what they say about driving a Volkswagen Jetta? It's just like driving a race car. No, nobody said that's gonna say let decisions are not Jettas are sensible. The four door vehicle sedans I believe is what they call them in the world of cars. So this'll guys driving a Volkswagen Jetta And he decided To, uh, speed passing Clackamas County Sheriff's That's like good deputy, but he must have done something really weird because that seems kind of garden variety. Yeah, well, you know, the thing is, though, is that the Volkswagen Jetta was speeding right up to the deputy's patrol car, then decided to pass the deputy's patrol car. And then pulled into the lane in front of the deputy's patrol car and then, like took off speeding. Yeah, that's smart. Then the deputy's patrol car pulled over this guy. Yeah, this guy's name is Jeff so tough over in the Volkswagen Jetta. And then he stopped the car. Then the deputy got out of his car decided to go and check out the Volkswagen Jetta. But the Volkswagen Jetta Rolled back about 25 ft and hit the front of the deputies. Come on. Now. The deputy said he could smell alcohol from Jeff's car noticed a can of Busch light in Jeff's cardholder Bush. Yeah, now, you know, this is contrary, though, too what Geoff had been claiming And Jeff was claiming what he would how he was driving loud and clear on the back of the Volkswagen Jetta because on the back of this car He had a bumper sticker, Jeff Okay, because he wanted to let everyone know what the deal was. Okay, just like I have to make people aware of what's going on. Yeah. Yeah. What is the point of the Uh, bumper stickers say. Not drunk. Avoiding potholes. No Not that's like wearing the equivalent of wearing a T shirt that says, um, I'm not stealing things. Yeah, because we've seen that stealing thing. Yeah, We've seen those T shirts before Bradley in crazy, Stupid idiots. Now, Jeff Told the deputy, he planned a party with a friend over the weekend. So perhaps he was pre gaming a little bit, but I had to direct him to Jeff Fail the sobriety test. Reggie's registering a 0.22 blood alcohol concentration. That's more than twice the legal limit in the state of Oregon. Then Jeff was arrested and transported to Clackamas County Jail. Don't worry, guys. He's not drunk. He's just avoiding potholes. Yeah, yeah, I feel like if you if you put that on your car Like that's because Like you don't Nobody who doesn't drive drunk that puts that on their car, right? You know, I suppose it's one of those things were Jeff thought the logic was hiding in plain sight. If I tell them I'm not drunk. We're going, then they're gonna be like, Well, surely he's not drunk as he has the bumper sticker because he's like, and nobody would be that stupid because it's like, well, it's the adage. If you tell people who you are, then you should believe that, but he's just taking it a step further. Also, he has this Mickey Mouse was going to say I did notice. There's also a Mickey Mouse peering over the back seat. Decals on his review.

"Were all on the same page that everything was gonna be okay. And then it wasn't Next morning, Alex woke up and learned that Crest means General store was gone. She saw photos of a pile of smoldering rubble. And she sent you a text. I said tie. This is Alex all the reporter from CBI who interviewed yesterday. I am so, so sorry to hear about your business. I hope you and your family are okay. And he said, still got a lot of stuff to process lost our house last night, too. So both his business and his home were destroyed. A lot of people keep saying it is what it is. You get the things out that you can't replace. And then beyond that, you kind of just accept it for what it is. That seems to be the state of mind that I found most of the people I've interviewed so far. Now let's go to Oregon, where the wildfires have now forced about 500,000 people from their homes. Oregon Public Broadcasting's Jonathan Levinson has been covering the fires. Nearly million acres have burned across the state since Monday. That's almost double what burns in an average fire season and the fire they're still growing. There are 3000 firefighters working across the state. In southern Oregon alone. An estimated 1 to 2000 homes have been lost in the northern part of the state. No one's been able to get back to their towns to assess the damage, and fire officials say things were moving so fast that they don't have a good estimate. At least four people have been killed so far in the state, but you know, same as property damage fires were still spreading, and they just don't know the extent of the lost yet right And we know that there's a fire season every year. But this really is just so exceptional. Can you tell us what you have seen as you've been out reporting, so I spent the past two days in Clackamas County, and that's just south of Portland. Mix of rural and suburban communities and, you know, people were tense. They know the fire is getting close to their homes. They have no idea where the fire is exactly. They don't know if it's reached their town or their home. They don't know what they're going back to. I spoke to Nancy Price. She's 69. She and her husband had to evacuate their home in nearby Malala. So that's like 20 miles from Portland, and they had to leave so quickly on Tuesday that they didn't pack anything, not even their medication. They were in a makeshift shelter at a community college parking lot when I spoke to them so saying that's bothering me the most is we don't know what's going on how soon we can get back in the sea. Just to know if we have a home. We don't know. That's the thing I dread the most is not knowing. And so to give you an idea of how fast things are changing. Well, I was there talking to people. The evacuation zone actually shifted and the shelter was suddenly elevated to a level two, which means prepare to leave. The most urgent. A level three zone, which means leave now had also moved and was now just a mile away from the shelter. And so suddenly, people who had already evacuated their homes were getting ready to evacuate the shelter. What about Portland itself, where you are? Do the fire's represent a real threat there? Well, some cities in northwest in the northwest part of Clackamas County are the really Portland suburbs in places and a lot of people commute into the city from some of the smaller towns in Clackamas County. Evacuation zone has steadily moved towards the southern edge of Portland between Wednesday and Thursday. It came about 10 miles closer. It's now about six miles from the southern edge of the city. Portland Fire and Rescue spokesperson said that right now there's no danger to the city. But there is a concern that a fire could start inside the city in the parks. And so mayor Ted Wheeler issued an emergency order closing the city parks and outdoor property. All right. Jonathan Levinson of Oregon Public Broadcasting. We appreciate your reporting on all this. Thank you. Thank you. All right. So what is driving all these explosive wildfires and how much does climate change factor into it? We're gonna get the bigger picture now from Char Miller. He's thie, director of environmental analysis at Pomona College in Claremont, California, and he has spent a long time studying wildfires. Thank you so much for being here this morning. It was my great pleasure. Thank you. This is a big question, but it's really the most important. Why is this happening right now? Well, there's there's so many reasons why, but let's start with the Southwest and West drying out. This has been going on for 40 years. The expectation is that it will continue across the rest of this century. And we can ties lots of this to acclaim changing climate, of course, but what that changing climate is doing while it's drying out this region Is also producing the kind of energy literally fire energy that we're watching every single moment. I walked out of my house today at 3 15 in the morning. And the first thing that hit my face was ash and immediately my throat and nose could smell the wood smoke, and we don't have massive fires. We've just got small ones currently burning in Southern California. So we This isn't a media thing that we feel you can see it on DH yet the size of it and the speed with which these fires are moving. That's the other thing That's just really mind blowing, as every firefighter is saying that they're moving at a speed that they're not used to fighting fire at this at this rates. So why's that happening? Just because everything's so arid, it's just it's.

"Gotta tell you Trump's brought some real scumbags into the White House. That did not serve him. Well. Roger Stone is a dirty trickster. He's a bad, bad guy. I don't think he should have gone to jail by the way, and I'm glad he's out. He's a bad man. And he's out for Roger Stone, not for the country. Not for the man he was supposed to be serving. Michael Cohen, scumbag. Bad guy. And he will end up being a bruise on Donald Trump. Before this is over. He's already threatening He's already threatened because he wants a pardon. And I think that's why Roger Stone got a pardon to. I think he was threatening. These guys are they're toxic. They're not loyal. And I will tell you that. Scaramucci. The guy was press secretary for 10 days before just be clowned himself, and now he's out. He's Trump's biggest critic, so you could be mad at me for saying he bought. He brought some bad people into the White House. But surely you agree that the guy who's turned on him who he did nothing but kind things for is a bad guy. That being said. Trump's also brought some amazing people into the White House. Kellyanne Conway. Who came from the Trump campaign. She's fantastic. I'm sorry to see her go. I'm very sorry to see her go. No, I meant Cruz campaign. Yeah, thank you, Uh, Killian was was from the Cruz campaign. I'll tell you another one. That is fantastic. Is is Kayleigh Mcenany. I didn't know about her mastectomy until she told the story of the RNC. Breast cancer is one in 41 in four American women. We'll get breast cancer. We've had a whole slew of it on my mom's side of the family. And she's had a mastectomy, which she talks about openly. I'm not telling you a secret. It's very scary Rest. Cancer is a is a really, really scary thing. And for her to talk about that. Publicly, so that makes it easier for a lot of other people to come forward who are suffering or who have had that. But she's also toughest nails and she's prepared I want you to listen to Kayleigh Mcenany. The media has gone from world and the Democrats, The Democrats and their media have gone from no, no, there's the protests were peaceful there. Very sweet, sweet people, too. Well, they're good people. They have good reason to be angry to, um well, it's Donald Trump's fault. You can't have it both ways. So now they're blaming the violence by Democrats. On Donald Trump. Even though he's offering them help that they refused to accept. Ted Wheeler was offered help. And two days before one of his citizens was murdered by one of his thugs on the streets of Portland. Two days before. Ted Wheeler, which went very public. The mayor of Portland. With a letter to the president. We don't want your help here. Person murdered. They had killings on the streets of Kenosha, Wisconsin. Both the mayor and the governor said We don't want federal help go away. And look what happened. These people are fools. It's a wonder anyone would vote for them just to people care what they're letting happen. So with that in mind, the wonderful and talented Kayleigh mcenany When asked a very stupid question, the president's press secretary, said this then it's so interesting to me to see Democrats who wants disparaged two who ignored the violence. I should say all of a sudden caring about it, but let's not forget what they said Previously, Speaker Nancy Pelosi Downplaying the violence rocking US cities, ignorantly saying people will do what they do, Jerry Nadler When asked about Antifa, he said it out. That was a myth that's being spread around Washington D. C. It's not a myth. In fact, Antifa individual took the life of an innocent trump supporter in Portland. Rep I on I on a Presley, saying that she wanted unrest in the streets, Chris Cuomo saying. Show me where it says protesters are supposed to be Pete idea, Chris. It's the Constitution. Don lemon saying quote. The rioting has to stop Chris as you know, and I know it's showing up in the polls it showing up in the focus groups. It's the only thing right now. That's sticking. So now all of a sudden, 90 days later, I from this podium, have talked about law and order. The president has talked about law and order repeatedly but because the polling has shifted, um now it's time for the Democrats to deny what they said previously and all of a sudden focus on law and order. Um I'll leave you with this. That's like the arsonists blaming the firefighter. Powerful Oregon's Democrat governor, Kate Brown asks sheriffs from areas or outside of Portland. To send officers to help control antifa and black lives matter. The sheriffs of Clackamas and Washington County. Both refuse. The Washington County sheriff says he will not put his officers in a place where there is a lack of political support for public safety. Clackamas County Sheriff says no because there needs to be a policy that holds offenders accountable for their destruction and violence. Governor Brown's plan to address the mostly peaceful protests. Calls on several local law enforcement agencies to help including the sheriff's offices in Washington and Clackamas counties. However, Clackamas County Sheriff Craig Roberts says he will not send his officers to help. Sheriff Roberts says increasing law enforcement resources in Portland will not solve the nightly violence and murder. I'm sorry, will not solve the nightly violence and now murder. The only way to make Portland safe again is to support a policy that holds offenders accountable for their destruction and violence. Sheriff Roberts ads that will require the D A to charge offenders appropriately, and a decision by the Multnomah County presiding judge not to allow offenders released on their own reconnaissance. And instead require bail with conditions. The same offenders are arrested night after night. Only to be released by the court and not charged with a crime by the D. A's office the next night they're back at it, endangering the lives of law enforcement and the community all over again. Washington County Sheriff Pat Garrett. What a great name. Cited several risks that led to the decision, including quote the lack of political support for public safety. The uncertain legal landscape, the current volatility. Combined with intense scrutiny on use of force. The Organ Association chiefs of Police also put out a statement saying over the weekend, members of our associations were approached to assist with policing the city of Portland, Unfortunately, due to the lack of support for public safety operations. The associated liability to agencies who would be assisted in Portland and the lack of accountability for those arrested committing criminal acts. We cannot dedicate our limited resources away from the communities. We serve. We know there will be there will already be an additional burden on local law enforcement agencies. As Oregon State police troopers are reassigned to assist in Portland, we would propose the following is a steps to bring an end to the.
