    2020 vs USA

  • Shakura says:

    How come they call in military mercenaries to protect a few statues from vandalism, and there are no resources to save thousands of homes and lives from these fires?

  • Juanita Holland says:

    So sad and Trump hasn’t mentioned it .

    • Terrance Roff says:

      yea, funny that.

  • Jambo Never Again says:

    The whole of America is a ring of fire, rain, snow, heat, hail, coronavirus, earthquakes, corruption, Trump, ignorance, racism, brutality, and ungodly people. The whole country should be wrapped in yellow tape, a crime scene.

  • Jambo Never Again says:

    This is prophecy on America, and you won’t be shooting your guns at what’s coming fast to America.

    I bet Trump is lying people are dying

  • Steven Wolff says:

    The Holy Bible foretold that a specific generation would experience an ultimate convergence of many world conditions, events, and astronomical signs indicating the end of the age and Jesus’ promised second coming. I have created a space to share about many of the biblically foretold events and signs coming to pass which is helping make sense of the times we are living in. I hope it will be a blessing for you as it has been for me.

  • Brian Pulliam says:

    And now Trumps new thing is he is thinking about holding up money for California because they wont do what Trump has said that needs to be done like raking the forest floor have you ever heard of such a stupid idea raking the forest floor wont stop forest fires Trump is a moron

    • msZion says:

      The bible says there will be earthquake in not normal places also just wait to see

  • Ivan Guillen says:

    If you are reading this, stay strong, stay healthy, protect yourself and remain calm. We will overcome 2020’s adversities soon with resilience and resistance. During these dark times there is always hope in the middle of the fear. There are good news, God promises to be there for you because he loves you. “For God so loved the world that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish, but have everlasting life” John 3:16. I just want to let everyone know that Jesus loves you with a passion and its never too late to put your trust in him. Cast all your burdens on Jesus because he cares for you. If you’ve got pain
    He’s a pain taker
    If you feel lost
    He’s a way maker
    If you need freedom or saving
    He’s a prison-shaking Savior
    If you’ve got chains
    He’s a chain breaker.
    Don’t let your heart be troubled in these times.
    I wish you the best day.

  • Ms Smite says:

    NBC News – get your reporting straight. Nowhere near 8,000 homes destroyed. Last I heard, it was 700 homes and structures destroyed.

    *Was Barack Obama’s administration ‘scandal-free’? Hardly.*
    Dec 2016

    *I don’t know what planet you are living on. There are at least 18 major scandals the president presided over: (1) The IRS scandal — selective targeting of conservative groups. (2) Benghazi scandal — cover up. (3) Bowe Bergdahl scandal — traded five Gitmo terrorists for an Army deserter. (4) Iran deal ransom payments. (5) Veterans Affairs death list scandal. (6) Solyndra scandal — $500 million lent to a failed solar company. I could list a dozen more Obama scandals, but it would require too much space.*

    I just don’t understand why countries like Chile and Peru can afford to rent out the 747 Supertankers and the 7th economy and the richest country in the world can not do it. Something fishy here.

    A little misleading when it says “wildfire destroys more than 8,000 homes” but actually it should be “wildfire THREATENS more than 8,000 homes.” And containment is not 0%.

  • K - Kay says:

    I live in Indiana. This all makes me sick. Year after year this happens. Humans & Animals DEAD. They Could Stop ALL the Fires NOW. They Could Have stopped them before letting them get out of control. OPEN YOUR EYES. WE GO ALL OVER THE WORLD WITH OUR MILITARY TO FIGHT IN WARS. TAKE PLANES TANKS BOMBS ETC. We go to the Moon and Live in Space, Splash down in the Ocean’s/Gulf this time. GET THE WATER TANKER PLANES FROM ALL Branches OF THE MILITARY. GET 5 OR 6 OF THEM AT THE SAME TIME TO FLY NEXT TO EACH OTHER, (like the Blue Angels & Thunderbirds do) AND DO A CONSTANT DROP OF WATER. I DON’T CARE HOW MUCH MONEY IT WOULD COST, IT WOULD BE LESS TO DO THIS AT THE START OF EACH FIRE, (OR EVEN NOW AFTER WEEKS) THAN IT WILL IN ANOTHER MONTH OR TWO !!!! THE LOSS OF LIFE IS MORE IMPORTANT THAN MONEY !!! WAKE UP PEOPLE !!!!!!!!!

    Everyone needs a boycott Sequoyah retreat Center ! Anybody who wants to complain about the firefighters as they are risking their lives fighting these fire storms,trying to save whole communities, I imagine some of them have lost their own homes !
    And this San Jose professor
    Scott Myers Lipton
    has the gall to complain.

  • Al’bina KlI says:

    No one cares about nature when elections are ahead 👹

  • TuckerE says:

    What a misleading headline. There are no where near 8,000 homes destroyed. So far there have been 700 homes destroyed in ALL of California. This headline implies over 8,000 destroyed in just the Bay Area. More bs entertainment news meant to scare people even more. NBC, try being truthful for once.

  • Daniella Cruise says:

    My financial target is bitcoin and I will keep investing in it because it’s the only cryptocurrency with the overall best performance in the past few years. The truth is that the volatility associated with bitcoin is what makes it so profitable especially when you trade with a good strategy. Until I started making profits consistently off trading that I believed it was possible.
    That being said, the market is still all about BTC at the moment and I’ll advise current investors and newbies to take advantage of Neno’s program, a pro trader who runs a training program for investors/newbies who lack understanding on how trading Bitcoin works, to help them recover loss from the crash and also accumulate more bitcoin, with his program i made $4,500 with $1000 in just 1 week.
