1850 - Death Valley '49er William Robinson dies in Soledad Canyon from drinking too much cool water [story]
Leaving Death Valley


President Donald Trump delivered his first State of the Union address to Congress in Washington D.C. Tuesday night.

Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) released the following statement after his speech:

“Last February, during President Trump’s first address to the nation, we heard a lot of talk that wasn’t followed up by action.

“He condemned hate speech, but later said white supremacists are ‘very fine people.’ He preached bipartisanship, but then supported bills to gut Medicaid and end the Affordable Care Act with zero Democratic input. He advocated for middle-class tax relief but instead supported a bill that raised taxes on working families.

“Tonight we heard more promises.

“We heard of his desire to take action on immigration – but the president himself rejected a bipartisan solution that addressed all four ‘pillars’ he said were essential. Instead, his latest proposal holds DACA recipients hostage for his senseless border wall, policies that will tear families apart and the elimination of protections for immigrant children.

“We heard about investments in infrastructure – but the president’s own budget would slash funding for vital transit and infrastructure programs that communities across the country rely on.

“We heard promises of American leadership – but the president repeatedly isolates us from our allies and partners. He withdrew us from the Paris climate agreement, he relentlessly undermines the Iran nuclear deal and just tonight he promised to keep Guantanamo prison open.

“We need more than talk. We need a president who will bring the country together rather than foster further division. We need a president who understands and engages in important issues rather than spending hours on Twitter.

“There are responsible ways to address immigration, job creation, foreign relations, infrastructure, education and any number of other important issues. But we need a president who puts American families first. So far President Trump’s actions haven’t synced up with his teleprompter.”

    We need a senator that works for California,

  2. She use to be more reasonable before Obama became president…don’t know if she drank the kool-aid or if it is her age. Not sure what the dems want. During the Obama administration they wanted boarder security and immigration reform…they didn’t make DACA permenent setting it to expire. Now they scowel for making 3 times more on the legal path then they proposed for. Their infrastructure funding was a debacle….very little real upgrades happened with a whole lot $$ spent. The military was left in shambles…many of the equipment is unusable due to part shortage ..they fought for minimum wage increases but now frown on companies raising their wages even over what the dems wanted and giving bonuses on top of it….unemployment is the lowest for everyone in a decades ….so not sure what she and the dems want…other then just wanting to complain and ‘resist’

  3. She had her mind made up about the speech before she even heard it.

  4. Linda perera says:

    President Trump is doing the job he was elected to do. Sorry you and your cronies don’t like it but we do. Please retire and go have Tea with Hillary. She has lots of time on her hand well maybe not she might be getting fitted for her new pant suit for the OSCARS

  5. Karen Diggs Karen Diggs says:

    She’s on Meds. Should be removed from Office. Like Pelosi.

  6. Not proud to be a Californian

  7. She’s just old and getting senile! She’s not worth quoting either!

  8. Democrats showed their true colors. It’s time to take California back.

  9. KJ Slo KJ Slo says:

    Trump 2020!🇺🇸

  10. KJ Slo KJ Slo says:

    Vote 🗳 for Omar Navarro & Travis Allen 🇺🇸❤️👏🏻

  11. She was in this crowd. That I will never forget.

  12. I don’t care what this nut has to say. What good has she done for all Californians lately? Time for her to go.

  13. Then import more republicans because that’s the only way you’re gonna get one.

  14. Chris Angelo Chris Angelo says:

    She has an out of tune perspective on action. Look around and see the business and job climate. State and local governments need to see the benefits and follow suit.

  15. Time to vote this windbag out of office. It’s the Dems who splitting us up, not Trump.

  16. Marcia says:

    Please do us all a favor & retire!

  17. Rose Wooley Rose Wooley says:

    Resign already! Ugh
