AN UPDATE ABOUT THE LATEST CALIFORNIA FIRES

No sooner did I post last Tuesday's blogs about the strangeness surrounding the latest fires in California than I began to receive all sorts of emails from people who live there, and it seems plenty of people there also find their suspicion meters at least in the orange zone.  And one of the things they've been noticing is that the fires are (coincidentally, of course) aligned with the projected route of that state's high speed rail coorridors (and thanks to the many people that sent this in):

Dianne Feinstein’s Husband Wins Near-Billion Dollar California ‘High Speed Rail’ Contract

That was just one article of several, and I selected it both because of the date and it's succinctness. Another, which is more of a "visual aid" was sent in by scores of people, and in this case, a picture is worth a thousand words:

In spite of the graphic's caption that the wildfires "exactly" line up, which they do not, they do in my opinion line up in ways just a little too "coincidental" to be "coincidental."

And that raises all sorts of nasty implications. It was former Assistant Secretary of Housing and Urban Development, Catherine Austin Fitts, who a year ago - as other areas of California were burning in suspicious wildfires - offered the hypothesis that people were indeed being deliberately burned out of their houses and homes. The reason? The Silicon Valley plutocrats and technocrats needed to expand, and make room for hundreds if not thousands of technicians being "reshored" into the country. And they had to do so cheaply and quickly. Given that those fires also demonstrated some high strangeness, like guardrails melting while nearby shrubbery and trees did not burn, the question was raised about the potential mechanisms for the fires, and who would have access to them. At the time, I speculated that there could be natural explanations, but that they were almost as weird as the fires themselves, and a little too weird to be plausible. The simpler though much more unpleasant hypothesis was that the fires were deliberately started by some sort of exotic energy weaponry in a kind of "arson by microwave interferometry".

In any case, it would seem to me that Ms. Fitts' hypothesis has gained, with these latest fires, more traction. The question of who would have access to such things is also easily answered: the government, of course, is one, but also the government's many defense contractors, many of whom are located - once again conveniently and coincidentally - in California.

There's another nasty implication, besides that of people in a hurry are willing to simply burn people out of their homes rather than waste time about eminent domain haggles and property purchases. (Besides, burned out property is a lot cheaper and people are in a hurry to unload it.) That "other nasty implication" is that if my hypothesis of reshoring manufacturing in a dispersed way so as to create greater security from potential interdiction is true, then those California fires may be coming to a neighborhood near you.

But hey, just in time, PG&E announced that there's nothing to be concerned about: they may have accidentally started the fires (this article shared by Ms. C.V.):

PG&E reports power line problem in Butte County near time and place where wildfire sparked Read more here: https://www.sacbee.com/news/state/california/fires/article221448500.html#storylink=cpy

And now, just as I write this blog, the news on the radio reports that a lawsuit has been filed against PG&E for defective power lines. That makes it official: Nothing to see here. Move along.

Perhaps they're testing the power lines all along the rail routes?

See you on the flip side...

  1. California has of course stringently resisted Trump’s measures, given the ideological differences. Couldn’t that be why Trump deployed these secret weapons against that state?

  2. I saw a video of the remains of the hone of the guy who made VAXXED. Trees ok, metal destroyed.

    Surprisingly, many commenters mentioned DEW. The word is getting out.

  3. I don’t know, there’s nothing in the Old Testament about fires running along a rail line, although the RailMud has something for everyone.

  4. . . . There’s quite a few things that could be said about the state of affairs of the State of California. . . Whether it’s speculating about “the big-one” in San Francisco and Los Angeles or whether there should be several states within the state or urban sprawl becoming hazardous from poor land management or the management of utilities become reckless and inept or just too many politically oriented folk seeking positions of power they do not merit – indeed, there’s quite a few things that could be said about the state of affairs of the State of California. . . . . . Sorry, caught myself repeating myself. . . But did you know, I once called California home? . .

    . . . One can still recall the big buzz about computers and more computations and more computers for more computations. . . It didn’t take long for questions about how to do that came up on monitor screens and spread sheet applications for running numbers and collecting data. . . It’s been decades since those 80’s, but at least the folks at Silicon Valley settled on “STEM” instead of SMET or METS or EMTS. . . S-Science, T-Technology, E-Engineering, and M-Mathematics, in all four acronyms. . . It should be pointed out, I suppose, that each of those arrangements begin with the Mind and Brain and NOT the other way round with AI or artificial intelligence. . . Something is not measuring up or working properly there in the State of California. . . One tends to think that it is Who and NOT (yet) a What as the current main drivers. . .

  5. Oh and David Rothchild may in fact own Southern California Edison along with the weather channel. I heard he lives in Venice Beach. I was in Venice beach during the evacuation and it is no longer “where the sewer meets the sea.” Humm upscale now, bathrooms locked, fewer homeless. Still I wish they would let the rain come.. dream on.

  6. I live in the L.A. California fire zone and immediately noticed the difference between this fire and other fires: 1. They usually try to stop these fires at the 101 freeway– I mean line up to fight it back so it doesn’t jump and go out into Malibu. That is, if it started north of the freeway. This fire jumped the freeway twice. One time it went through an alleyway between two luxury developments–neither damaged. 2. The fire always follows the wind, it almost never backtracks–this fire backtracked. 3. The fire started in an old nuclear site–old rocket factory that used nuclear material, so there is a chance of serious contamination. 4. The politicians were absent the whole time with some rare exceptions–no engagement.

  7. The Silicon Valley Plutocrims[CIA connected] want the world to be tech-centric in their image. Or, do we want a human-centric future? Once upon a time we used technology, but today’s technology uses us.
    We can create a human-centric future where people are treated w/dignity & respect and get a fair share of wealth that their labor is creating. Or, we can end up w/more of what we have now – more misery, more ever-worsening income gaps, fires, floods, and other catastrophic outcomes.
    Many of these Silicon valley oligarchs have an anti-human worldview. Facebook employs a secret police known to insiders as the rat-catching team. Exploiting workers is their game plan.
    The Silicon social contract is simple: you’re totally screwed. Their business model is just as simple: sell dollar bills for seventy-five cents and take credit for how fast they’re growing. The vast majority are losing money. The new VCs alchemy is to make fortunes for themselves while skipping the step about building a profitable company. Their secret? Grow fast, lose money, go public, cash out.
    Where else on Earth can you run a company
    that loses billions of dollars…
    … and become a billionaire yourself by doing this?

    [Don’t get me started on Silicon Valley….]

  8. This nothing new anyone familiar with the Sergia Leona film Once Upon The West or McCabe and Miss Miller by Robert Altman. Both films dealt with the railroad underhanded expansion at the end of the nineteenth and beginning of the twentieth century. The technology is used today instead of hitmen but the result is the same fire sale buyouts.

  9. I have lived in Southern Oregon for nearly three decades and have closely watched all the fire seasons up and down the Pacific states. I was an aero engineer, so here is my ‘solution’:

    (1) Get the fire before it grows. I have watched all the newsreels showing firefighters and small helicopters [pitiful] trying to stop fires AFTER they have grown to unmanageable size. Their ‘response time’ is too slow. You need something that can dump huge amounts of water or mixes anywhere and in a short time.

    (2) We have large numbers of jetliners that have been retired due to fuel inefficiency. Check any ‘boneyard’ in the SW. These aircraft have plenty of hours left on them; they were retired due to economic reasons. Especially 747s and DC-10s. Entrepreneurs have converted a few to ‘waterbombers’, proving the principle.

    (3) Plan and fund either a national or a regional ‘Air Force’ to acquire, convert, and have at-the-ready 100-150 of these supersize waterbombers. They would be deployed at jet speeds to drown any wildfire at the multi-acre level, rather than when it has grown to tens of thousands of acres. Call it preemptive firefighting. Sure, it would be monumentally expensive – but life-cycle costs would be far less than the combined ‘do almost nothing’ costs in the present system.

    (4) As far as paying for such an ‘Air Force’, I would suggest (among other things) totaling-up the combined losses under the present system – insured houses, burned infrastructure, value of tree losses, cost of fighting the large fires, etc. – and figuring out an equitable way of moving those ‘guaranteed losses’ into some sort of pool of available funds. It would involve combining the now-scattered year-by-year ‘payees’ into some form of long-range funding source. Public, private, or mixed, I don’t care – as long as it is effective (including cost effective)…

    (I have been close to three wildfires over the decades. One was so close that my car was packed and my breathing was getting painful. Another had two separate fires bearing down on the house from opposite directions. Not a newbie…)

  10. Everybody is familiar with arson in wood or scrub land to speed up “development” projects. This is on a huge scale, and maybe even the most brainwashed ‘Fornians – especially those who have lost their property – won’t fall for the “global warming” or “defective power lines” claptrap. And if they DO fall for it, well, things won’t get any better!

  11. After reading the 1st paragraph/headline;
    a new twist was thrown on the $election process:
    [$]Elect your State executioner.
    We’ve come a long way from early representatives;
    about a 180 degrees, to our 21st Century executioners.

  12. Sorry not seeing fires covering much of the highspeed rail route; the California Central Valley isn’t in these linked pictures.

    https://www.dpreview.com/news/1345517241/nasa-shares-high-resolution-satellite-images-of-california-s-camp-wildfire

    Yes, since the train is to run from the Bay Area to [Queen of the] Los Anglos, right a fire to the north of LA could be in the route of the rail line.

    Oh, and when the French built their highspeed train (the TGV) that involved much laying of new straight track. In other words the California train couldn’t simply go up/down the old tracks near the Pacific.

    The big indication for exotic weapons use, in weeks to come, would be steel that is still soft and pliable in the fire zones. And no, unless there’s weight on it, and a very concentrated fire (so inside a building) steel won’t bend much in a fire. So in fact crumpled guard rails point to something odd–I guess unless the asphalt burnt for a long time.

  13. Will there be an office( a decently funded group of people) to investigate, track through purchasers on deeds of all the property purchased after the fires, to correlate the data?

  14. Contemporary lingua franca has departed from the unambiguous concept of sacred duty. Dictionaries are said to contain all words, yet one particular word has been left out.

    As a non-English speaking Scandinavian, I know the word, and the sagas, that provide context to the word. It defines sacred duty to avenge transgression against sanctity and kin.

    The anagogical level in patristic exegesis creates a vortex, that invokes the highest principle, that justifies action. Perfect storm is perfect ancestral alignment, defining sacred duty.

    Plant is earth fish,
    seeking food on dry land,

    1. Do us all a favor. Learn some of that english so as to more effectively communicate an actual message, rather than simply draw attention to yourself with cryptic musings.

        1. In the alchemist laboratory, Merlin works with words, metaphors and complex metaphors called allegories. Beyond that, there is a level of complexity, that contains allegory of allegories. That is called anagogical.

          The technical term is “solve et coagula”. It basically defines “ordo ab chao”. Understanding the pyramid, is reverse engineering the Runic system. Today, the “alchemy of money” is being projected on the world stage, politically.

          Any child can comprehend the simple images in the Druidic nursery rhymes. It is connecting them into a rebus (!), that is the challenge. It is an intellectual exercise, to unravel the fabric of the western world. The endgame is the pyramid.

    2. Wha???? Sorry I have a hard time understanding most of your posts and this one in particular.
      My favorite word not translatable into English is “saudade” a Portuguese
      word they say is about death, more about living, maybe the ocean, and definitely time and the only way to understand “saudade” is to listen to fado the Portuguese art of sad song, or more accurately songs of longing. I think we are en masse longing for a time where life seemed simpler and people knew about caring for one another, sadly, this time can’t be longed back into being. We are in the middle of a time meant to ask us a simple question, can humanity be saved?

      1. Does humanity want to be saved? Does humanity deserve to be saved? What happened to the instinct for self preservation and love and care for family and neighbor? So many are the walking dead and have no belief, faith or hope for good. Those who support evil are much more optimistic and are fighting with enthusiasm for their cause. This is why evil grows. Even those who claim they are against evil believe in it more than good.
        Those who abdicate their responsibility have nothing but despair as self made victims. Remember what the gmork said in the never ending story about despair… Not just a children’s story.
        What are the implications of the idea of can or can’t the human species be saved?
