Dr. Tom Borelli, in his June 7 Conservative Review article, warns that medieval diseases are spreading in California. Why is this a concern for we who live in Alabama? The answer is in the word “spreading.”

Borelli points out that “the twisted priorities of Democrat political leadership are creating a dangerous environment for the residents of the Golden State.” He points out that while the top priority of both the governor of California and the mayor of Los Angeles is climate change, the streets of California’s cities are filled with homeless camps, garbage, and disease-spreading rats.

The doctor warns that “Los Angeles is facing an infectious disease epidemic caused by flea-borne disease linked to rat-infested streets.” This include an outbreak of flea-borne typhus in the homeless population in downtown Los Angeles.

The California Department of Health reported a new record of 124 cases of typhus in Los Angeles County in 2018. In addition to the typhus, there have been cases of typhoid fever, according to Borrelli.

He points out that the mayor joined the Green New Deal parade with a plan that targets transportation with a goal of having 80 percent of cars powered by electricity or zero-emission technology, and to have city residents drive fewer miles each year, while disease-carrying rats are running the streets and infesting city buildings, and the number of homeless in the city of Los Angeles is up 16 percent to over 36,000, reaching almost 59,000 in Los Angeles County in 2019.

These republicans can't seem to stop telling lies trying to help Trump but its no use his poll numbers slip every day. Truth is under Trump our carbon emissions are going up. Last year it rose 3.4% it did not fall. Canada and all the European Union members cut their emissions and even China the biggest polluter in the world cut theirs 18% from 2000 to 2014. Even in little Norway half of the cars sold there are electric plug in cars..The US under Trump is falling more and more behind.Just today Trump raised the amount of emissions allowed to be discharged by coal power plants to try to save the failing coal industry..What kind of twisted mind says that enviromental laws hurt our fellow man?

Ol' Ignorant Dave is at it again. He thinks ONE confirmed case of measles is an epidemic but hundreds of thousands of illegals crossing the border is not a crisis. That's pretty "twisted" right there. The US is the only major country in the world to cut emissions since Trump took office. The air is good here, regardless of the "thousands will die" hyperbole. Draconian environmental laws don't help the environment, but they do hurt people. Dave, why do you hate your fellow man so much?

Talk about twisted priorities? I think we have greater problems than to worry about some fleas in California..Right here in Alabama and Tennessee we have an epidemic of measles because the Republican led state governments in these two states will not enforce the law on kids being immunized against infectious diseases. The progressive state govt. in California is just trying to fight Trump with his attack on our enviroment. Trump is rolling back enviomental regulations left and right. Two of the many examples is where he has allowed mercury emissions to be spewed out from coal smoke stacks. Allowing more air pollution to blow into National Parks, And.Its been estimated that his lax air quality regulations will cause thousands of deaths from poor air quality, and if you really want to get close to home Trump has allowed deep water oil drillers in the gulf to remove blow out protection on their rigs this is a direct threat to the gulf shore of Alabama.
