Blame the government not PG&E Utility for CA fires and power blackouts


As millions of Californians are plunged into the dark ages is there anything that can be learned from this experience? Let’s take a look.

Now the media theme of the problem goes like this:

Millions of Californians may have just suffered an unprecedented, induced blackout by the state’s largest (and bankrupt) utility, PG&E, just so it isn’t blamed for starting even more fires causing it to go even more bankrupt.

But there is much more to blame than the utility company. Hint: Could it be the government?

Oh by the way, keep in mind all those wonderful solar panels don’t mean anything. Almost all are piped back into the utility system. Thus not one bit of help.

CA fires of hell, thank the environmentalists

Obama-Era Eco-Terrorism through Environmental Regulations

These Obama-era regulations introduced excessive layers of bureaucracy that blocked proper forest management and increased environmentalist litigation and costs — a result of far too many radical environmentalists, bureaucrats, Leftist politicians and judicial activists who would rather let forests burn than let anyone thin out overgrown trees or let professional loggers harvest usable timber left from beetle infestation, or selectively cut timber.

In a 2016 Townhall column, Paul Driessen explains:

Eco-purists want no cutting, no thinning – no using fire retardants in “sensitive” areas because the chemicals might get into streams that will be boiled away by conflagrations. They prevent homeowners from clearing brush around their homes, because it might provide cover or habitat for endangered species and other critters that will get incinerated or lose their forage, prey and habitats in the next blaze. They rarely alter their policies during drought years.

The resulting fires are not the “forest-rejuvenating” blazes of environmentalist lore. They are cauldron-hot conflagrations that exterminate wildlife habitats, roast bald eagle and spotted owl fledglings alive in their nests, boil away trout and trout streams, leave surviving animals to starve, and incinerate every living organism in already thin soils … that then get washed away during future downpours and snow melts. Areas incinerated by such fires don’t recover their arboreal biodiversity for decades.

CA Fires of Hell – Thank Moonbeam Brown for Cutting Forest Management Budget

In September 2016, Governor Brown vetoed SB 1463, a bill in the California legislature which would have required the California Public Utilities Commission to prioritize areas at increased risk from overhead wires in their management of wildfires.

Then we had Brown slashing the forest management budget. Good move moonbeam.

Also note the infamous Delta Smelt budget was not cut… this endangered specie causing the water shutdown thus causing the drought in the lush farmland of  Central California.




And the coup de grâce of California at its finest?

More than 2 million people are being plunged into darkness as part of an unprecedented, orchestrated blackout across Northern California. But good luck finding out whether you’re one of them. Bloomberg’s Lynn Doan reports on “Bloomberg Markets.”


Other than that all is well in the swamp. For the best in conservative news and so much better than Drudge click below:

    […] While the attention has been on California’s power outages due in part to lawsuits in the Billions of dollars and fear of more liability for PG&E. Being held liable to this tune does nothing in fixing their problems. I connected the dots previously. Blame the government not PG&E Utility for CA fires and power blackouts […]

    Screw California and its zombie voters who would commit sepuka before voting out these sicko bastard leftist politicians who are engineering the state’s descent into hell. As long as televised sports, on-line pornography and inter-generational government dependency isn’t disrupted the voters remain pacified and brain dead.

    Overall, it’s pretty amazing how over a period of less than 100 years, government has been able to convince nearly everyone that they’re entitled to 24/7 electrical power —but heck, that’s just the tip of the iceberg. Also in this same period of time, government has convinced nearly everyone that they’re entitled to a portion of everyone else’s income, free college education, a right to a job, entitled to on-demand medical care (including gender reassignment), a right to live forever, and access to toilet facilities reserved for the opposite sex.

    If everyone thinks that these “managed shutdowns” are a problem for consumers of electricity, what do they think might happen when Iranian Moslems successfully shut down the entire electrical grid of the western states, or the northeast quadrant of the United States. Don’t think that could ever happen? Think again. Our dependency on Uncle Sugar for even the basic necessities places all of us in grave danger. Can you imagine what “no electricity” really means? It means no heat, no air conditioning, no ability to cook food, no gasoline for our cars, no access to our cash in the bank, no operating hospitals, no operating grocery stores or pharmacies, and —god forbid— no access to the clown news network (CNN).

    As Bunkerville so ably points out, the government of California has finally achieved social parity. People living in multi-million-dollar homes are now in the same boat as are people living on LA sidewalks. Well played, California …
