PG&E’s DELIBERATE BLACKOUTS

PG&E’s DELIBERATE BLACKOUTS

Seriously, folks, I do not know why Nuttyfornians haven't done a run on pitchforks and ropes, because I've never seen a state so lost in lunacy as that one. While San Francisco drowns in human poop and drug needles, the people in the state capital, the administrative center of the asylum, Scarymental , are worried about plastic straws and forcing people to get vaccinated.

But wait, there's more insanity, and you knew it was coming: according to this article shared by C.V., deliberate brownouts and blackouts are coming from PG&E (Pacific Graft and Emoluments... er... I mean, Pacific Gas and Electric) during period of high fire risk:

PG&E: Massive power shut-off to hit 800,000 customers, could extend nearly a week

In case you missed it, read this one again:

Of the Bay Area’s nine counties, all but San Francisco was to be hit by the mass outage intended to stop trees from crashing into Pacific Gas and Electric Co. lines when fast, dry winds blow in after several months without sustained rainfall. Across the state, 34 counties will be affected, some starting in the early morning and others not until noon or later on Wednesday. (Emphasis added)

Now, I don't know about you, but the last time I checked, there was no necessary nor causal connection between shutting off people's power and trees not falling on the power lines. Something tells me those trees will continue to fall onto the power lines; they may not start fires with the lines dead, but there's always the lightning for that (and we'll get back to that in a moment). But it's ok, they're doing their little bit to fight forest fires preemptively and (to use the hated word) "pro-actively". Uh huh.

You might be thinking, "well, rather than turning off people's power, why not clear vegetation from around the power lines?" Well, if you're thinking like that, you're obviously deeply deplorable, and living in the state of Reality, not Nuttyfornia:

Dana Dickey, a Shasta County resident, had her power shut off for three days recently after a wildfire. She was bracing for another shut-off on Wednesday, but wasn’t convinced it was necessary. Dickey also said that PG&E’s clearing of vegetation near power lines had been inadequate, and that she had trouble getting information from the company’s website during the previous shut-off. (Emphasis added)

And while you're thinking Nuttyfornia couldn't possibly become any nuttier, there's this little cache of cashews:

Some water districts asked customers to store supplies. The East Bay Municipal Utilities District, which delivers water to 1.4 million customers in Alameda and Contra Costa counties, and other water providers, including the Marin Municipal Water District, were asking customers in affected areas to store a minimum of two gallons of water per person per day — enough to last three to seven days — and to store extra for pets. Although the districts have back-up generators for water pumping and distribution, services could be affected.

Yes, during a fire danger, turn off the power so that water pumping stations won't work so that when the fire engines finally show up after filling out the requisite state forms on the environmental impact of firefighting (yes, that was sarcasm, for those in Scarymental), they won't have any water pressure in the fire hydrants.

Now, if you're like me, you're thinking there's probably something else going on here. That brings us to today's high octane speculation (and suspicion). First, a bit of context:

Utility officials said the dramatic outages were fueled by a weather forecast that was shaping up to deliver Northern California’s most dangerous windstorm since the October 2017 wildfires that ravaged the North Bay’s Wine Country. Many of those fires were started by PG&E power lines, according to state investigators. The two-year anniversary of the disaster was Tuesday. Last year, PG&E equipment ignited the Camp Fire in Butte County, the worst fire in state history.

The problem here is, this is the "narrative," because many Californians recorded so many anomalies from the previous fires that the trees-falling-on-power-lines isn't the only nor total explanation. In fact, many of those anomalies point to some potentially downright sinister technologies and motivations. And as for the falling trees on power lines explanation, personally, I'd go so far as to say it's the spin. Many of those fires had all the hallmarks of being a man-made problem, a bit of TADISC (Technologically Assisted DISaster Capitalism) which is being pressed into the service of another narrative, that of global warming:

For PG&E, the shut-offs will mark a high-stakes test of a program the now-bankrupt company developed after being implicated in two years of catastrophic infernos that killed dozens of people and burned thousands of homes to the ground. The crisis has raised fundamental questions about whether PG&E can deliver power safely to its customers amid a warming climate.

As I recall, there were more than just "dozens" of people killed, and some are still missing and hence not on the lists of "the dead". In any case, the implication of all this is: well, obviously, Pacific Graft and Emoluments can't deliver power safely, and hence deliberate power cutoffs are necessary to "protect the environment/climate/children/elderly" (fill in your favorite crisis). And wait for it: eventually PG&E will come up with a way to monetize the power cut offs: a "cut off fee" to force customers to pay for the lost revenue, plus the costs of planning and implementing the power outages, so that the local power company can get paid for not delivering power. (Of course, there's always lightning to do that: forest fires will always be started, even in Nuttyfornia where it seldom rains, especially if you're spraying the air with lots of chemicals and metals to increase atmospheric conductivity and little regional dipoles, but I digress.) With reasoning like this, one might expect the nasty folks in Scarymental, Nuttyfornia to start limiting people's water supply because of prolonged draught. (Oh... wait, they already did that....) It's that little bit about all of this being a question of "whether PG&E can deliver power safely to its customers amid a warming climate" that's the give-a-way. For one thing, the warming climate part is undefined: warming where? the Bay area? the whole state? The country? the continent? the globe? And if the larger categories, those data and that conclusion are in dispute. But not to worry, they're still a good enough excuse to turn off the power to the suburban deplorables during "danger periods."

So in my opinion, it's a beta test folks, and with modifications, it can come to a power company near you: we're turning off your power for the next three days due to chances of high winds/tornadoes/&c blowing down power lines and starting fires.

But here's a thought: why not eventually challenge the whole policy if (and when) fires start during blackout periods precisely in areas affected by the blackouts?

See you on the flip side...

  1. The nature of these blackouts suggests to me that their purpose is to provide cover and unpredictability for an op of some sort – perhaps (hopefully) more anti-pedophilia/trafficking-ring operations?

  2. So, I’m getting my tires changed. Reading newspaper. Fire in California. Why. Garbage truck on fire dumps load so truck doesn’t burn up. Save job. Not my problem. Burns up many properties. WTF.

  3. I live in California’s Sierra Foothills – ground zero for these shut-offs. Gee, NO it was not hot (about 65 degrees) and NO it was not windy …. there wasn’t even a light breeze here. We figure it is purely politics since they shut off the low-density population areas, but NEVER Sacramento or San Francisco – wouldn’t want really important people to be inconvenienced of course!
    Nobody believes this is “for our safety” – it is just a patent lie from Pacific Graft & Extortion (thanks Kelly Em!) We just wonder what legislation will be signed for PG&E’s benefit – or how many times they will do this to us until they get what they want. And yes, when I retire, other places are looking good!
    Today the power is on but the air is filled with smoke from a PLANNED CONTROLLED BURN that they decided to go ahead with, despite the power outages (because it was going to be “hot and windy”). OK, the reality is that there is NO heat or wind, but really? Seriously? A controlled burn by CalFire right now? Even they don’t believe it!

  4. Dave Hodges is connecting dots to Trump’s cancelling of Chinese control of Long Beach port, martial law in Morgan Hill, CA (chokepoint for escape from Bay Area?) and power outage. Also sightings of UN vehicles moving in various areas of the U.S.. Many concurrent events here. Too many. Hmmm.

      1. I’ve listened to a few of his podcasts myself over the past few days. There have been suspicious events in our nation for the past 30+ years with respect to UN troop movements, etc. Operation Jade Helm I watched carefully, but Texas has always had some interesting “developments”. I don’t know how to respond to voices like Hodges because we (the consumer) can never really know whether those voices (Hodges) are themselves being used as pawns to manipulate the “rabbit population to run.” It might not even be the whistle-blowers who are doing the manipulating–but someone in their chain of command. I will say this, though. This feels about as tense as the period leading up to September, 2001. It may be even worse now than it was then. It certainly looks bad–but the Jade Helm never broke.

        Recently there was a series of episodes on PBS related to the history of country music. Country music emerged during a time of tremendous social and economic change in the US. That series chronicled how the displacement of the poor influenced the development of that music quite well–and the lessons for modern times are there to examine anew. The economic conditions here in the states were such that the two world wars were welcome events by both faces of the uni-party system here in the US. As I watch the news and extrapolate backward to those times I see similar patterns. I have also noticed that hovering in the background of both are familiar family names. It’s enough to make one wonder.

        1. Robert Barricklow

          I’m currently on disc #5 in that Kevin Burn’s new series. He’s an outstanding documentary entertainer. Recently he’s been featured in several Harper’s magazine articles. He totally misses the deep banking connections and Michael Hudson unearned income realities in classic economics.
          He’s either clueless and/or purposely so.
          An excellent gatekeeper.

          1. Yes, Burns is definitely a gate-keeper. He’s on PBS. What else can I say? For this presentation to be this dark using their “sanitized version” of events speaks volumes after the original historical context is restored.

        2. Robert Barricklow

          Yes!
          It really got me thinking of those airplane crashes, like Hank Williams & Patsy Kline. …
          When did the CIA & others started to change the culture and music therein?

          I guess, I going beyond the twig
          into a no return twilight zone.

      2. California officials said Ham was is is now obsolete and no longer needed for emergencies. They don’t want the antennas on govt. property any more. You can bet ham radios will be phased out as they don’t want people to communicate with each other.

  5. There is currently a constant stream of refugees from California to Texas. As a result some Texas cities have the highest population growth rate in the nation. Entire companies with thousands of employees are packing up and moving lock, stock and barrel to Texas (with all their employees).

    1. This has to have been baked into the Bayer cake. Bayer Bauer Rottenchildren pg&e have got to have seen this coming. So where and what are their next moves?

    2. I’m not sure of the author of the song. I heard Lyle Lovett playing it. Sort of makes no sense to me.
      Yes, you’re not from Texas but Texas wants you anyway.
      I’m assuming the lyrics are an invite because Texans are open to new persons. You figure it out.

  6. Deliberate blackouts.
    I believe you mentioned deplorables in the third to the last paragraph which triggered me to join in the conversation, moderately out on a limb. I was watching a Kerry Cassidy (sp?) Cassiday, Video this morning showing black out zones in northern California. A big triangle in California where people could expect black outs. Info graphics from CNN.
    No one has brought this up so I thought I would. The State of Jefferson. I don’t really know the history of it, if totally serious or not, but it is now. Folks in northern California and southern Oregon think that it should be a separate state because they aren’t represented by the two entire states. Here is a link that I have not read about it.
    https://soj51.org/
    I’ve been there. People living off the land, crazy folks , Vietnam vets trying to get by, hangers on, bud trimmers. It’s definitely an odd bunch. Nestle stealing water while water rationing is happening. It’s definitely nuttyfornia as you term it but not southern California. This is an attack on a last bastion of folks just trying to live a good life and not bother others. It’s a big area. Don’t lump all those folks together with the rest of the West. Thanks

    1. I actually live in the (future) State of Jefferson. We have everybody here from hard right to hard left, although most folks are remarkably grounded in Reality. There is a region – from about Redding in northern CA to Roseburg in southern OR (about where CA’s Central Valley ends to where OR’s Willamette Valley begins) – where neither the CA nor OR government seems to fit. Plus, we don’t have the raw population numbers to make an impact on state policies and funding. Hence, there is pressure for secession and sovereignty.

      State of Jefferson will probably never split-off, although it should. Too many established forces don’t want it to happen. With our magnificent coastline and mountain ranges, it would be wonderful…

  7. “Get used to this. This is California’s new normal. If you had had a properly installed generator, you wouldn’t be having these problems.”
    -PG&E phone representative.

    My supervisor lives in El Dorado County, affected by the blackouts. She’s been without power since yesterday, and described the chaos to me this morning: Stores sold out of supplies, including generators; Scalpers selling those stockpiled supplies for double the normal cost; Pop up businesses installing propane power; and worst of all, PG&E’s unapologetic response.

  8. An addendum to my previous comment. I just discovered a YouTube channel named ‘Ice Age Farmer’ , which has a number of informative videos on PG&E and recent CA blackouts. Definitely think the Giza community will appreciate them ( connects a lot of dots ). https://youtu.be/6JrX7sSjVUI

  9. Writing from Santa Cruz county, the power went down at about 11 PM last night with no inkling of ETA. Oh, and by the way, winds have been null for the past 48 hours indicating that “FIRE DANGER” is no more than a shill of lies. Even if it weren’t, given past seasonal experience in the region, and PGE’s lack of due diligence regarding clearing, cleanup, etc. that have been standard industry practice in years past, this so-called safety event is tantamount to 3rd world behavior that I have experienced in what I thought were far less developed nations… I wonder if anyone in has even bothered to calculate the economic and health damage caused by this nonsense. My. company currently supports a large number of small medical, urgent care and dental practices that cannot afford the cost of auxiliary power and are in no position to provide emergency services/procedures under these conditions. As to lost revenue from these businesses alone, I calculate those at a minimum of $10,000 per practice per day. The pitchforks and rope may finally be coming out as I’ve been in touch with a number of state assembly and senate offices that report being overloaded with angry calls on this matter. Finally, while I have often thought about relocating out of Nuttyfornia, the benefits of being here have, until now, exceeded the costs. But given this nonsense, I’m out. of here as soon as I can relocate my business and body.

    1. Ah c’mon now, you have that great legislator Pan there to save the day. BTW, how are those unrefrigerated vaccine viles forced on everyone doing?

  10. During the “Thomas” fire in Southern California a couple years ago all the fire hydrants “failed” due to a lack of electrical power. The power was on in most of the city. Lots of firetrucks and firefighters, but no water at the hydrants. A friends house burned in that fire and this is what they found out.

  11. Writing as one currently experiencing the blackout, I would first like to praise Dr. Farrell and the commentors; no surprise that Giza members “get it”.

    I’ve lived in the Bay Area all my life ( 50+ years ) and I can assure everyone that higher temperatures and strong winds are nothing unusual in our Indian Summers. One could, I suppose, chalk these measures up to skittishness on PG&E’s part; but the sheer magnitude of the blackout leads me to suspect something of a more sinister nature. In addition to the social conditioning rightly mentioned by commentors, the analytical data that can be mined from this large scale experiment is extremely valuable to the technocratic surveillance state: indeed, only by using the plausible ( to “normies” ) rationale put forth ( exacerbated by trauma of fires over the past 4 years ) could such a huge population be data-mined in real time “emergency”, with the analysis looking at, for example, cell phone ( internet use ) *before/during/after* the events. Seems like the kind of large-scale laboratory could provide useful info for future scenarios ( e.g. EMP attacks, real or contrived ; or more weather emergencies, real or contrived ). For my part, making the proverbial lemonade out of lemons, I’ve tried to be as prepared as possible through the usual means ( food, water, batteries, ‘bug-out’ bag ) . For years I’ve told my wife we need to leave CA; just hope we can do it sooner rather than later.

      1. Thank you. This online community is unique in that its members are both intelligent *and* decent people ( Dr. Farrell himself exemplifies those qualities ).

  12. Think Zardoz meets Planet Of The Apes 1968 version. This just a dry run of our masters ridding themselves of surplus useless eaters. A new Earth shall arise and its new name will be Hell.

    1. Great analogy…One I have used when employed for a huge technocracy years ago. They hired few who were intelligent enough to do the real work, worked them almost to death as they had to hold up all of the overpaid incompetents in charge as well as their pet projects and power grabbing schemes. “The Family” made it clear who made up the power base. The rest were treated as “Children of a Lessor God.” I walked away after seeing just a bit too much as well as sensing Evil all around me…in the halls, in the walls, in the eyes and faces of the founding culture. There were masses of followers – they did like to hire in those who were very “Religious,” but lacked “sensing skills” that come from mind and body as well as the courage to question everything before putting your name on it. I have no regrets in walking away and an experience that will impact the way I see the world for the rest of my life.

      One interesting observation: I met more people that passed away there from cancer than any other place or population I have known and I’m no spring chicken. Many from rare forms of cancer. One person literally was Instant Messaging Me from his death bead saying that it was from the stress of it all and that we must understand in the firm why there is so much stress that is causing cancer. Looking back, could be all the tech surrounding everyone, the wireless phones, laptops, on top of the environment.

    The private water companies will still be soaking the public water systems dry. Bottle water will slowly, but surely, replace you public tap water. When the public’s water run dry by the private profits unquenching thirst, watch the private system prices go up w/o the free access to the tap water they’ve been bottling.
    Same thing in other public utilities. The health care? Oops! Already privatized. Public Utility Banking? Oops! Privatized. Public freeways, highways, and byways? Oops! Being privatized. Public libraries? Where did all the books go? Gone to e-books everyone. Where did all the public utilities go. Gone to the unaccountable, unelected private owners, everyone. Your fires and crimes will be handled by your paid for out of YOUR pocket for those private unaccountable services.
    Now you say your powers out and your taps dry?
    Who you going to call?

  14. Leaving aside the high-tech ‘options’ for now, I want to focus on greed . PG&E has made no secret that it satisfies shareholders first. Shareholders want maximum return on their stock. The way to maximize returns is to (1) jack-up electricity rates and (2) minimize expenses. On the expense side, maintenance and repairs/upgrades are biggies.

    So, PG&E chose to fire-off checks to stockholders, rather than put serious money into clearing vegetation from beneath their powerlines and to make sure the lines & connectors were up to spec. And eventually, this came back to bite them. Or rather the consumers, who were asked to bail-out PG&E the last time it went bankrupt (after first firing-off checks to stockholders).

    PG&E is a privately-held company. It is doing exactly what a privately-held company should do, under raw capitalism: Privatize the gains; socialize the losses.

    Bottom line: Never privatize essential services…

    1. Turning-off power during projected high-wind times is simply their way of proceeding as normal. They must have spreadsheet-ed that income loss for a few days was way cheaper than doing the expensive essentials (clearing & maintenance/upgrades). Doesn’t really matter what the societal considerations are. It’s a fairly easy calculation, if you have a reptilian mindset…

    2. Jim Stone on the CA blackouts:
      http://82.221.129.208/.wa1.html

      “Last year, California’s lawmakers pushed through legislation that held utilities accountable for all fires ‘they’ create. However, in July, governor Newsom created a $21 billion fund* to cover for damages caused by power related fires. I did not know that, which subsequently means that PG&E cut the power for purely manipulative reasons, as many people suspected. This is a correction to yesterday’s report, where I sided with PG&E, obviously I should not have.

      Now, the question goes back to who is in control of PG&E? I had suspected the fires were for social engineering at first, was then mistaken about liability, and am now right back to who is doing social engineering via power cuts? ”

      * https://psmag.com/news/california-passes-a-21-billion-wildfire-victims-fund-to-protect-utilities-from-damage-claims

  15. There is of course another alternate explanation. What if Pacific Graft and Extortion was tagged with starting a fire when it was really someone else’s doing. By cutting off the power in these windswept areas, they may be thinking “you might start another disaster, but you’re not going to pin it on us.”

    1. Wonder who’s drones were up there filling the sky so much the fire fighters couldn’t put any craft’s up there.

    2. Some first hand info, for what it’s worth:

      I live in NorCal and lights just came back on tonight after five days without. My house is within 5 miles of the current Kincade fire.

      The first day of the outage, PG&E trucks were swarming the entrance to my town, trimming trees, as if for show. Prior to that day, I had gone MONTHS without seeing a PG&E truck in the area and I’ve NEVER seen PG&E in the area doing tree/line work and there is lots of forest here.

      Either something is preventing PG&E from doing their repairwork or they really have no intention of fixing anything.

      I don’t believe for a minute this “fire weather” was natural. Prior to each wind events, planes were spraying grids in the atmosphere (chemtrails, aerosols, geoengineering, whatever) overnight–could easily see reflected in moonlight–and early mornings. I should note, last year, spraying used to be 5-6 days per week but stopped several months ago.

      If California were serious about the drought/fire weather events, cloud-seeding for rain would be a cheap, logical solution. We do it in other parts of the state, all over the country and world.

      There’s a very weird vibe here, beyond the normal insane political divide. The good news, there’s a large effort to recall Pelosi’s former nephew-in-law (?), current Governor Gavin Newsom.

  16. The real fun will begin upon prisoner release due to inhumane treatment w/o power.
    Just think of all the MS13/Crips/Bloods coming to visit so you won’t be lonely.

  17. For me, it’s conditioning. The rott set in long ago and western infrastructure is decaying at a rapid rate. This is all part of the plan for the masses to become accustomed to their environments lack of public services as they edge closer to banana republics.

    1. Agreed. Getting us used to austerity measures…
      There’s probably a lot going on here. I don’t think it was PG&E that actually caused the previous fires, but economic warfare against PG&E is big business. Non-Californians, and many Californians to boot, likely don’t realize how large and influential PG&E really is, what its downfall could mean, and to what lengths various parties would go in order to destroy or preserve it.

  18. Pronouncements like these have the whole alternative media buzzing like a hive of angry South African honey bees looking to see who kicked over their nest. There are so many candidates to attach to the identity of bees here it’s almost funny. I’m sure explanations for these will pop up here before today’s end. I would even contribute a few possibilities myself. Here’s my thing. Whatever this means, look for some occult holiday underneath the event. Most “disasters”, “terrorist attacks” and “assassinations” of note have occult holiday signatures and components. Beyond this, it does appear PG&E is setting a financial precedence–payment for services not rendered to cover costs for _______________. Sounds like a legalized corporate taxation policy to me!

  19. … Heeeeyyyyyy … here’s an idea. We appear to have the whole “lets build an underground city” thing down. Given the supposed technology involved in the DUMBs. Therefore, it should be an extremely simple task to put
    power lines underground.

    It is a matter of free will, choosing between following one’s forefathers, or Jesuit spooks with apron, posing as founding fathers, on behalf of papacy.

    The superstructure of the Jesuit sleeper cells can only exist by deception. Since one’s forefathers have been led astray also, one must go deeper.

    Origin is biblical, when realizing, that the Saxons are the ten tribes. That brings new light to the Holy scriptures.

    SAMUEL SAID 3

    Samuel said not to worship any master,
