If you've been concerned about the strange weather of late, and are entertaining hypotheses of "weather warfare", "geoengineering" and "disaster capitalism", you might want to ponder the implications of this short little gem shared by B.:
That's right; Nuttyfornia Governor Gavin
Mewsom Newsom has proposed taking the proposed wildfires "advisory board" at least partly black:
California Gov. Gavin Newsom is proposing to create a new advisory board to help set standards that electric companies must follow to prevent wildfires. But the board could operate partially in secret.
The Wildfire Safety Advisory Board would make recommendations to officials at the state Public Utilities Commission. But their communications could be withheld from the public.
It would have to hold meetings in public but would not have to follow other provisions of the state's open meetings law.
I don't know about you, but I find this whole idea more than just a bit suspicious, and grist for the mill for some high octane speculation. The timing of this, for one thing, is very suspicious, especially in the light of the recently promulgated FASB56 federal accounting regulations, which in my opinion simply take the entire federal budget black, and remove any last vestiges of oversight and accountability from the process. In such a financial world, money can be "disappeared" and used for almost anything, such as buying up land on the cheap after a few convenient fires (Nuttyfornia) or floods (the American heartland). In such a world, states would be forced to create secret panels and boards to oversee their end of the process, which is what I strongly suspect we're looking at here.
But there's something else perhaps enforcing this new move to secrecy and lack of accountability and oversight at the state level, and it's that recent offer of help and assistance to the massively geoengineered state from the federal Department of Defense:
If you're one of those who, like me, suspect that there are many reasons to believe that the recent fires in that state were not entirely "natural" but the result of deliberate planning and action, and thus examples of "disaster capitalism", then ponder the implications of these paragraphs from the KTLA article:
The Defense Department has agreed to provide information from a Cold War-era military satellite to help spot new wildfires, and Acting Defense Secretary Patrick Shanahan gave the California National Guard blanket approval through year’s end to use unmanned drones to map fires, count destroyed houses and spot survivors.
“We finally got a breakthrough with the Pentagon,” Newsom said as he opened a day-long Emergency Management Preparedness Summit intended to help state and local officials better prepare for wildfires and other disasters.
“We’re just working more collaboratively with the federal government on technology and procuring access to technology that we haven’t had access before, for fires primarily,” Newsom said. “Leading edge technology — that’s the bottom line.”
In addition to the satellite technology, Shanahan is allowing the National Guard to use its unmanned drones on any CalFire operation through year’s end. Previously, state officials had to get separate Defense Department approval each time they wanted to use the drones, though they’ve been used periodically since 2013.
“Now they’re pretty much integrated into our standard operating procedure for response because they’re so useful both for fire mapping and for damage assessment,” Baldwin said.
It's that aspect "coordination" and "mapping" that, of course, could serve a double purpose, not just of mapping fires and coordinating responses, but mapping and coordinating where to start them.
That is, of course, high octane speculation, but in the FASB56 world, and giving states access to spy satellite technology, there's nothing to prevent an oversight board operating partly in secret from doing just that. (And, of course, there's nothing to prevent states from acquiring their own space-based platforms to do the same thing. After all, if corporations are now allowed into space, why not states and provinces?).
So where's the proof in the pudding, so to speak? Well, I suspect it's this: do you recall those strange eminent domain laws recently passed in Washington state after pressure from the U.S. military, that basically set aside standard eminent domain procedures if land is deemed necessary to the military? If so, then if my high octane speculation about the real meaning of this "oversight board" may indicate that similar eminent domain laws will eventually have to come out of Sacramento as well. In other words, it's a story to watch, and watch closely...
See you on the flip side...
