  Then he bragged that HE was the hero of the Butte Fire. Now that was a LIE!! He even brought his racist friends of Franklin Grahams' in to be praised at the BOS.  Sickening!!

No "Draining the Swamp"--All insiders for appointments

   Trump has no intention of what he called "Draining the Swamp" of Washington insiders, like he stated during his campaign.

   In fact, now that Christie has been thrown off the lead of the Transition Team, Mike Pence is spearheading placing people like Guiliani, Gingrich and Chris Christie.  He never had any intention of 'draining the swamp', did he??

Angels Camp Police Chief should be elected--Answer to the people!!

Hillary Clinton wins Presidency!

   For the second time in recent history the person who won the vote of the people is not the President! Yes, Hillary Clinton won the majority vote of the people in the U.S., but will not be allowed to serve as President. Gore was the last one.

   The reason is that the Founding Fathers set up what is called the Electoral College, which is based not on popular vote, but was designed to give small states more power in electing a President. The Founding Fathers did not trust the masses to pick a President.
