Last Saturday, while I was having a private talk on Skype with a friend, there was a sudden power surge, the lights dimmed, then everything went off for a brief moment, and the computer began to reboot, interrupting our conversation. Now, my desk sits right next to a window, and from there I can get a good view of the neighbors' houses across the street, the street lamps, and see a ways down the street to other people's houses. No one else seemed to have been affected by this little power spike that affected ... well, just me and my house. And this is not the first time this type of strange little transient has occurred (if indeed that's what it was), but it's certainly not a regular occurrence. I'm not an electrician by any stretch of the imagination, but when we managed to get our connection restored, I remarked to my friend that it was very strange that it seemed to have affected only me, and none of my neighbors. My friend instantly reminded me of the "smart meters" theory of the recent sad fires in California.

I say all of this by way of passing along an article that was shared by Mr. V.T.  As you will see, it consists mainly of pictures taken by a Californian of some houses in her neighborhood that appeared to suffer some sort of ignition located near their electrical meters:

Smart Meters and the California Fires

Now, I have no idea how even to recognize a so-called "smart meter" much less if any of the meters being shown are indeed smart meters. There might be any number of explanations, including incompetent or faulty wiring (it does happen, particularly in this day and age of dumbed-down edgykayshun). Another explanation could be faulty parts, or even chips, in the "smart meters" that come from a particular oriental country across the Pacific pond. It wouldn't be the first time that that has happened either. Perhaps there are electricians or electrical engineers out that that can look at these pictures and from experience see what possible and plausible explanations there might be for such (to me) strange fires.

All that does not prevent me from my high octane speculation of the day. Provided such fires might have been caused by power surges or transients of some sort, the might one be looking at a combination of factors, rather than one particular thing, e.g., a combination of (1) surges or transients, (2) faulty equipment and/or wiring, and (3) smart meters? In looking at some of the maps provided with the article, the patterns do not look to be random, and might perhaps be the result of particular builders in one area. Such a possibility might be one explanation, and perhaps the most "natural" one. But I cannot help but think there may be more going on here, by way of my high octane speculation: could such transients be engineered to deliberately target one building, or series of buildings, and not others? Here's where my "combination of factors" hypothesis kicks into high octane gear: one can indeed modulate information into any electrically conductive medium, like radio waves through the atmosphere. Tune your receiver to a particular frequency, and you pick up the signal from the station using that frequency. Similarly, "faulty parts" could be so engineered to be tuned to certain modulated electrical transmission in the power grid: tune the "parts" in a particular serial number series, track where the parts were installed, and voila, at the flip of a switch, when necessary, one might be able to "take out" an area through electrical ignition of fires and "faulty parts." Similarly, such transmissions would not necessarily have to be through the power grid, but through normal broadcast, like radio, radar, or microwaves. Once again, all that's needed is the right frequency tuned to those "parts" and an overload occurs, and fires ignite, and so on. Think of them as "targetable electrical transients." And if that idea of "faulty parts" and wireless broadcast power seems a little farfetched in the California fires context, don't forget this story from 2009 (which Ms. C.V. shared):

Startup to Beam Power from Space One California utility is taking Solaren Corporation’s space-based solar-farm proposal seriously.

Solaren to Close Funding for Space Solar Power

Admittedly, this is quite a stretch. But while I'm out on the end of this particular twig of high octane speculation, I might as well leap completely off the twig altogether, because I also cannot help but wonder if these strange pictures and and the recent fires with all their anomalies might somehow be related to that story, a few years ago, of the attack on an electrical substation at the southern end of Silicon Valley, that was a professional "hit". And there were other strange occurrences in that area: internet cables being cut, and so on. Just search this website for "California substation" and you'll see what I mean. In short, the fires are only one part of the high strangeness in California, and I'm beginning to suspect that they're intimately related to all the other strange things that have been happening there, from the electrical substation attack, to the cutting of internet cables in the Bay Area, and now to these strange electrical meters. Why do I think this? Well for one thing, there was a second attack on that substation, and in the second attack, equipment was stolen (See California Power Substation Attacked in 2013 Is Struck Again). I have to wonder if we've been told the full story of what type of equipment may have been stolen.

Exactly how the fires and these other events might be related, I do not know. But I do think it's worth considering the possibility, and being on the watch for clues that would either confirm or contradict the idea...

See you on the flip side...

      Very interesting Zeno though I wouldn’t like to be on the receiving end of this wondrous “power tool”.

  2. zendogbreath on December 5, 2018 at 12:04 am

    youtube might have taken it down. it didn’t come up in my searches. remember a couple years ago a ted talk with a cia hacker who came up with an algorithm that cranks up lithium batteries on cellphones to – you guessed it – blow up on a phone call. and he bragged that it had already been used on a terrist.

    not sure on the smart meter on the exterior wall where our electric comes in. but the smart meter on our water meter inside the house runs on a lithium battery. i’m betting the smart gas meter on the exterior of the house does as well.

    Based on comments here by professionals in the field, and my own experience in power engineering and high tech product engineering, the pictures in the referenced article are NOT indicative of the smart meters being the causative factor in the fire. The damage to the meters and associated service entries .would suggest that the meter damage was symptomatic of a major high current over-voltage event of significant power spectral density. Such could have been caused by one or more of the following factors:
    1) A substation fault provoked by fire
    2) A substation fault caused by directed energy source(s)
    3).A system-wide power spike caused by a fault
    4) A system-wide power spike caused by directed energy sources.
    i could not determine from the maps enough data to isolate the event to a substation serving the neighborhood. However, given the overall strange patterns of damage reported for this fire my high octane speculation would lean to numbers 2 and 4 – directed energy causation….

    I just wrote a comment over at:
    Pertinent here is that Line Surges could have been what sparked (sorry) many of the house fires. As WD ably noted below (thanks!), “severe overload would burn out the [smart meters] PC board rather quickly. This would result in either the relays being shut off or fused in the on position depending on the nature of the failure. Power would either be shut off or maintained on the structure.” The latter would allow electrical-arcing anywhere conditions were right – at the meter or inside the house. A Line Surge would be dangerous to any house that did not have a Whole-House Surge Protector. (That probably includes houses with ordinary meters, too…)

    (Joseph, I do not know whether you own your house or are renting. If you own, a Whole-House Surge Protector might be worth investing-in. If you are renting, you can contact your landlord and mention their ‘vulnerability’; might get some action. At the least, put surge-arresters between anything you value and the outlets. I prefer UPS (Uninterruptible Power Supply) surge-arresters for most items, especially computers. I even have them for some lamps. They are cheap when on sale. When an outage hits, it is ‘funny’ to look out the window at the neighbors and see them being dark, while I still have a few minutes to prepare…)

    Analog meters have a rotor disc which turns as power flows through the device and, mechanically by clockwork gearing, operates the readout dials. A smart meter has no rotor disc, but has a digital readout screen only.
    Analog meters compute the power flow by multiplying the magnetic field generated by the current transformer built into the meter X the magnetic field generated by the voltage coil windings, all based on 60 cycles, to drive the disc rotor. These meters measure actual power used, ignoring any reactive power load.
    Who knows what digital smart meter measure! Some customers may be paying for reactive power load as well as the multiple harmonics generated by various computers and computer chips in smart appliances, causing complaints by sudden increases in electric bills after smart meters were installed. Can smart meters by ‘updated’ from time to time to increase ‘profits’? Who knows? Who cares?

  6. zendogbreath on December 3, 2018 at 11:10 pm

    installed solar panels grid tied 12 years ago. made us smart meter. should not have done it. this post makes me consider placing a power post off the building and remounting the meter on that post.

    • Aravinda on December 9, 2018 at 1:14 pm

      Zen, you can have that meter removed. Read my post below which gives more info. People all over the country are getting together to stop this pending destruction of our world and are winning.

  7. Pierre on December 3, 2018 at 8:35 pm

    Ive said for years I’d rather go back to candles and wood fires (in summer even) that have them install one of those smart meters. glad to have a modern chipless meter that stops in less than a heartbeat, though finding yesterday a melted plug on a power board that had not tripped the lights fantastic (/ flash in the pan, walking in the rain song) makes me wonder.

    Have our overlords gone from burning out the underclass to grab their property to getting rid of the underclass as well. Kill to birds with one stone so to speak.

    Lloyd’s of London refuses to cover wireless devises health effects.
    Smart Meter arcs are burning out computers and shorting out surge protectors and appliances. plus you have the conductive metal nanoparticulates falling from chemtrails.
    Some Americans are like the lady from Houston Texas who ordered a CenterPoint energy worker attempting to install a smart meter off her premises at gunpoint. She knew the smart meter represented and clear & present danger.

    • DanaThomas on December 3, 2018 at 12:57 pm

      If this is happening the “smart meter” phenomenon could be shorter lived than expected. Anyway, as a technology for, say, remote monitoring and billing of utilities, it is quite superfluous: such monitoring can be done through the power cables themselves, without any atmospheric microwave transmission.

      • Robert Barricklow on December 3, 2018 at 2:32 pm

        It’s another surveillance tool that also can function as a kill switch.

      • zendogbreath on December 3, 2018 at 11:08 pm

        dana, that’s a hopeful outlook. it’d probably work if those were the tech were devised to monitor and bill. rb’s right and it’s probably a sickening switch too.

    • Aravinda on December 9, 2018 at 1:11 pm

      Robert, you are right about Lloyd’s. Here is alarming testimony to the New Mexico PRC during their public comment period from Norman W Lambe, Senior Property Claims Examiner at Precision Risk Management. He has investigated numerous claims resulting from fires due to “smart” meters.,_Norman_Lambe,_Final.2.pdf

      Here are two videos I highly recommend about how to stop smart meter installation legally and lawfully.
      The 2nd goes into how our country is actually set up and how although they have tricked many into being corporate u s citizens and use this to do whatever they want, the original Constitution is still the Supreme law of the land, and they know it, and will back down when you use it correctly. This process has stopped smart meter installation, and many are using it to fight 5g and have been successful.
      This is the best explanation and breakdown I have seen, and sums up a lot of information understandably. This is a must if we the people want to restore our Republic and rid ourselves of the tyrants and parasites. If we do not act, our country is done and the commies will continue to destroy everything in their path.
      There is also an EMF summit that starts today with lots of info from doctors and other experts who talk about symptoms and how to treat them. There is actually a whole new building field to make clean buildings without dirty electricity or other emf’s . Many have health issues and do not even realize it. The government has been doing studies about emf’s for decades and have even mapped out exact frequencies and their effects on different parts of the body, as well as mind manipulation.

    Above links give an idea of the circuitry inside a smart meter. Essentially, the power is converted to a DC voltage level of around 12vdc for use on the PC board which contains the modem, power monitoring, and power relay circuitry. These would be low amperage, low power circuits. The meter would transmit its data at designated programmed times in a short burst. The meter would not transmit continuously. The meters are mainly remote power switches operating relays which would either allow power through or interrupt it based on whether or not you paid your bill.
    Any severe overload would burn out the PC board rather quickly. This would result in either the relays being shut off or fused in the on position depending on the nature of the failure. Power would either be shut off or maintained on the structure. Failure of the meter would be immediately noted at the control center due to lack of signal. This is to prevent anyone from tampering with the meter in order to reduce their power bill.
    There are failure modes which would result in a fire on the board which may or may not set fire to the structure depending on whether the meter is attached to the structure or on a separate power pole nearby. If the relays controlling the power are fused in the on position, power would not be interrupted to the structure and fire within the structure could occur if there is an overload condition within the structure. This would not occur if everything within the structure was operating properly.
    This is not to say that structures operating smart appliances could not be commanded to create an overload condition. Should such an overload condition occur, the wiring would become hot enough to cause fires along the routing of the wires. This can be observed in some of the pictures. These would be normal structure fires burning at typical temperatures of around 1400 F.
    What is observed in the CA fires would not be typical of a smart meter caused fire due to the level of destruction as the fires would not burn hot enough for a long enough period of time.
    It is doubtful that every or even a significant percentage of the households employed smart appliances; but then this is CA, where they might. I have no knowledge to base this on and can only surmise.
    In order for smart meters to be the cause of all the fires, it would be necessary for an overload condition to exist on the power companies transmission lines. This could either be accidental or intentional. If intentional, then this would be a case of mass murder and arson on an unprecedented scale carried out for an unknown agenda.

    • zendogbreath on December 3, 2018 at 11:05 pm

      unknown? take a look at zoning changes needed to achieve agenda 21 goals. it needs to go from existing (or recently formerly existing) expensive single family homes to high density larger corporate owned multi family rental properties. emminent domain much anyone? then add in the potential routes for high speed rail. and the satellite relay down to sebastapol. didn’t chinatown cover something similar done decades ago over water?

      • WalkingDead on December 4, 2018 at 4:59 am

        Z, these are reasons apparent to all of us here. These people worship a different god. It’s never that simple. There is the human suffering/sacrifice aspect, messages being sent/received; it’s a world wide phenomenon with many nations its victim.
        I would wager that the location names and dates are significant; numerology and other occult symbolism’s may play a part; the testing/ demonstration of weaponry in their arsenal. They need to know what they can get away with on multiple levels, short and long term goals to be achieved, some known, most unknown. We can’t look just at the obvious and accept that’s all there is to it. It may be cosmic in scope with Earth/humanity as its prize.

        • zendogbreath on December 4, 2018 at 11:02 pm

          good point. am not so well versed in occult. it’s kinda repellent the way the lucious trust types like david icke and foster gamble have invited us all in to ponerology. like they’re doing us a favor and we don’t have brains enough to startpage their connections to croweley and blavatsky.

  11. Bluenose on December 3, 2018 at 10:16 am

    These pictures look like lightning strikes to me, melted meters etc. aren’t from power going in but power going out looking for a ground (notice the damage near the bottoms of walls). I’ve seen meters and complete electrical entrances literally blown off the outside of a structure from a lightning strike. Whatever the source of this power is, it’s as strong or stronger than lightning. I am a former 20 year volunteer firefighter, including 4 years as a captain and 6 years as chief (for what that’s worth).
