<Thread> with timeline of events relating to WH response to California's devastating wildfires which began last month:
2/ @newrepublic article links to this one from @modbee from July 20, 2018 which reported on #ZinkeIsTheWorst™️'s visit to Don Pedro dam with @RepMcClintock (CA-04) and @RepJeffDenham (CA-10)…
3/ At this outdoor photo-op, @RepJeffDenham said "Congress is looking at one agency, one decision," and "called the state’s water conservation proposal a 'disastrous plan to flush water from valley rivers to the ocean,' foreshadowing twitterfingers-in-chief Aug 5th tweet.
4/ The federal government is attempting to intervene in a local power struggle between the California State Water Resources Board and local irrigation districts who are on the side of farmers, city and county officials.
5/ From @modbee, Jul 20:
"Republican leaders have recently made attempts to shape water policies in California, with... @KenCalvert (CA-42) bill in May to make the Delta Tunnels project immune from lawsuits... (con't)
6/ ...and an amendment last month from Congressman @RepDavidValadao (CA-21) of Hanford to extend the proposed ban on court reviews to other water projects in the Golden State."
7/ Recap: the federal gov't (twitterfingers-in-chief, #ZinkeIsTheWorst™️, several San Joaquin valley/river Reps) is attempting to disrupt California's right to conduct its own business & seeks to block the Judicial process, in an effort to bypass Constitutional checks/balances.
Jul 6 CA StateWaterResourcesControlBoard (CSWRCB) plan released
Jul 20 Zinke photo-op at DonPedro dam w/CA04/CA10
Jul 23 #CarrFire begins
Jul 27 CSWRCB comment period closes
#MendocinoComplex fire begins
Aug 5 DJT tweets
Aug 21 CSWRCB meeting
9/ Wasn't able to squeeze this into the timeline, but also on Jul 27 (from @newrepublic article):
"@Interior’s Bureau of Reclamation commissioner sent a letter to California’s water board threatening possible legal action if the plan is adopted."…
10/ For reference, map of the 3 rivers that CSWRCB wants to release more water from (in an effort to improve salmon survival) outlined in red and the #CarrFire and #MendocinoComplex fire in black. (Perimeters are rough estimates, but show how these ecosystems don't intersect.)
11/ Reactions to California State Water Resources Control Board plan, which was issued on July 6, with comments accepted through July 27. Another meeting is scheduled for Aug 21, but I'm not sure of its agenda:
12/ #ZinkeIsTheWorst™️ has basically been on a road trip all over the US this summer, and taking his cue from twitterfingers-in-chief, tweets self-promotion PR along the way. Here's a few from his trip to Modesto:
14/ Here's #ZinkeIsTheWorst™️ at his photo-op. Jul 20 @modbee article has a couple of videos from this PR stunt:
15/ Last tweet from #ZinkeIsTheWorst™️ which takes a bullhorn and announces that his intent is to privatize the west's most precious resource, water:
16/ And for anyone who thinks I'm overreacting, here is a (former) Cabinet member actually saying this (and I would never had known, had @MountainsStars [TY!] not brought it to my attention).

@ALT_uscis @metaquest @SpicyFiles @equalandallied1 @rkfatheree @ThomasS4217 2/ Conveniently enough, Congress is "working" to keep the gov't open with "a 'continuing resolution' that would fund federal agencies through Dec. 7. ICE asked Congress to include the $1 billion increase in the continuing resolution." (more...)
@ALT_uscis @metaquest @SpicyFiles @equalandallied1 @rkfatheree @ThomasS4217 3/ "... immigration officials said they need the extra money to cover rising costs associated with arrests and deportations. Officials say this year they’ve detained an average of 43,000 immigrants a day, slightly more than Congress authorized in the current budget. (con't)

@lrozen @ThomasS4217 This 7.10.14 article shows *how* tight Sheriff Israel is w/ Roger Stone.
1/ Despite being sentenced to 1 yr in prison in '02, Suereth served 60 days house arrest & 5 yrs probation. Also in '02, Suereth married Thorne (who became Sheriff Israel's AsstChiefOfStaff in '14).
@lrozen @ThomasS4217 2/ In 2002, "Thorne was already working for Stone and Suereth and his son Andrew Miller would soon join the political operative's coterie."
Thorne was officially referred for the BSO job by Israel's campaign strategist, Ron Gunzburger, a close friend and associate of Stone's...
@lrozen @ThomasS4217 3/ … whom Israel installed at BSO as his $205,000-a-year general counsel. Not including Gunzburger, Thorne is one of at least three Stone cohorts whom Israel hired on the public payroll after the election."

(1/4) Pete Sessions (R-TX32), Waco-born, son of former FBI director William Steele Sessions, said this on Jun23:
"a big-time guy in Highland Park... killed his wife, just gunned her down. And that was because the judge was unfair, and the woman was unfair"…
(2/4) This son of former FBI Director WilliamSessions "did vote against reauthorizing the Violence Against Women Act in 2013, joining a majority of Republicans who opposed the bill... b/c of new provisions that would allow Native American tribes to prosecute non-tribal members."
(3/4) As a reminder, former FBI Director William Steele Sessions was Vice Chairman of Neil Livingstone's Executive Action LLC's Senior Advisory Board:…
