Statement on Federal Disaster Assistance for California

The President today declared an emergency exists in the State of California and ordered Federal aid to supplement State and local response efforts in the area struck by wildfires beginning on October 21, 2007, and continuing.

The President's action authorizes the Department of Homeland Security, Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), to coordinate all disaster relief efforts which have the purpose of alleviating the hardship and suffering caused by the emergency on the local population, and to provide appropriate assistance for required emergency measures, authorized under Title V of the Stafford Act, to save lives, protect property and public health and safety, and lessen or avert the threat of a catastrophe in the counties of Los Angeles, Orange, Riverside, San Bernardino, San Diego, Santa Barbara, and Ventura.

Specifically, FEMA is authorized to identify, mobilize, and provide at its discretion, equipment and resources necessary to alleviate the impacts of the emergency. Emergency protective measures, including direct Federal assistance, will be provided at 75 percent Federal funding.

R. David Paulison, Administrator, Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), Department of Homeland Security, named Michael J. Hall as the Federal Coordinating Officer for Federal recovery operations in the affected area.

Quote of the day

I want to thank each of you for stepping forward to serve our country. You're courageous folks. Because of your willingness to volunteer in a time of war, there's no doubt in my mind we can prevail in this war. It requires determination, resolve, steadfast -- steadfastness in the face of a brutal enemy. And having served as the Commander-in-Chief for nearly six-and-three -quarters years, there's no doubt in my mind that the United States military has that resolve and has that courage. God bless you.

MUST READ . . .

ILL-QAIDA
By INVESTOR’S BUSINESS DAILY

Iraq: A leading figure in the war on terror lectures his troops on avoiding the mistakes and brutality that alienate the Iraqi people. No, it’s not Murtha lecturing Petraeus. It’s Osama bin Laden admitting he’s losing.

No one has ever accused bin Laden of being stupid. The architect of 9/11 has seen better days and has admitted as much in a tape advising al-Qaida in Iraq to avoid the “mistakes” that have united the people of Iraq, Sunnis, Shiites and Kurds, against him.

“Some of you have been lax in one duty, which is to unite your ranks,” Osama advises followers in a tape aired Monday on Al-Jazeera television. “I advise myself, Muslims in general and brothers in al-Qaida everywhere to avoid extremism among men and groups.” Bin Laden, the voice of moderation? Who’da thunk it?

. . . Al-Tunisi was involved in a meeting with two al-Qaida operatives in Musayyib, a town about 40 miles south of Baghdad, on Sept. 25, when a motion to adjourn was made and seconded by an American F-16. Later retrieved from the rubble was a copy of a letter that Al-Tunisi had written to al-Qaida chieftains in which he said, “We are desperate for your help.”

Sorry, but help is not on the way. We are winning. They are losing. Not even a cut-and-run Democratic Congress or biased and distorted media accounts can help anymore. Al-Qaida has made many mistakes, but its first and greatest was underestimating the resolve of one George W. Bush.

NEWSWEEK: IS BUSH COVERING UP NEWS OF DECREASING IRAQI CASUALTIES?
posted at 6:09 pm on October 23, 2007 by Allahpundit

Some righty bloggers are having fun with this but it’s not far-fetched to think he’d hold back good news — if it might lead to better news.

[Only Newsweek (and the other treasonous members of the MSM) would make such a ludicrous claim; however, Allahpundit uses this claim to offer a VERY insightful analysis . . . You can read it all here:]
