IS THERE A MEDIA BLACKOUT ON POWER PLANT ATTACKS?

Welcome everyone, to 2023, and Happy New Year and our best wishes to all of you for every good thing for you and yours this year, in spite of whatever bad things may be coming, and I also suspect there will be plenty of those. Yet, I cannot shake the impression that while this year may be the year that Mr. Globaloney (or as we have also come to call him, Mr. Globalooney) "goes for broke", I suspect that the pushback this year will increase in intensity and focus.

With that thought in mind and as a context, consider this article from our friends at Zero Hedge about the latest power plant attack shared by S.C.G., because it has several "implications" lurking just beyond the margins of the article's text:

Media Blackout Over Terror Incident At Vegas Power Plant

Consider carefully what this short article actually says (and here it is in its entirety):

The US power grid is under attack as extremists shoot, sabotage, and vandalize electrical equipment at power stations. One of the highest-profile attacks was when two men used guns to paralyze a substation in Washington state on Christmas Day, leaving thousands without electricity. The incident made national news, but strangely enough, another attack last week on the Las Vegas power grid went unnoticed by the national press.

Mohammad Mesmarian, 34, rammed his car through the gate of a solar power generation plant outside Las Vegas on Wednesday and set his car on fire, intending to damage a massive transformer, 8 News Now reported.

...

"Employees at the plant said they found a car smoldering in a generator pit," 8 News Now said, adding the Mega Solar Array facility provides power to 13 properties on the Las Vegas Strip, all belonging to MGM Resorts.

Investigators believe Mesmarian "siphoned gasoline from his car to put on wires at the transformer," 8 News Now said, citing documents from investigators.

"Mesmarian clarified he burned the Toyota Camry," police said. "Mesmarian said he burned the vehicle at a Tesla solar plant and did it 'for the future.'"

Here's security camera footage of Mesmarian lighting his car on fire next to a giant transformer.

8 News Now said Mesmarian caused "major damage," estimating it could take two years to receive parts and fix the transformer. Luckily, the damaged unit wasn't online at the time of the incident..

"Following an incident at the Mega Solar Array facility, on-site personnel immediately notified authorities and shut down the plant's operations as a precaution in accordance with industry-standard safety protocols," an Invenergy spokesperson said.

Mesmarian was arrested at a campground Thursday. He's being charged with committing an act of terrorism, first-degree arson, third-degree arson, destroying or injuring real or personal property of another, and escape by a felony prisoner.

Why is the national press absent in reporting this terror incident on the power grid?

Perhaps the person involved doesn't fit the extremist profile routinely touted by progressive and state media.

You probably noticed the same four "take-aways" from this article and lurking in the margins that I did, but just in case you didn't, here's my list:

(1) The attack occurred in the same time frame as a another attack in Washington state that left thousands without electricity, which occurred due to the attack of masked gunmen on "a substation," i.e., after an attack on a local transformer substation. The Las Vegas attack was similarly an attack on a transforming substation, and not the power plant itself.  And in the Las Vegas case...

(2) ...the national media ignored it completely.

(3) The terrorist in the Las Vegas case does not strike the author of the Zero Hedge article ("Tyler Durden") as being the typical profile of a "terrorist."  And finally,

(4) Replacement parts for the substation transformer facility might be as take as much as two years to replace, which presumably will leave MGM Grand buying its electricity from the grid, and not the solar power array of the substation.

So here in my opinion are what's "lurking in the margins" of this one,  and I'm certainly open to other high octane speculations.  Firstly, I strongly suspect the obvious: that the news blackout on reporting this story is precisely that, a news blackout. This may or may not reflect a policy decision, but I wouldn't be surprised if it was policy (if it was not already) to not report such events, or to under report the numbers of people and businesses affected by them in the future.

Why? Well, in answer to that question I point out that replacing the equipment for these substations may "take some time" for the very obvious reasons that the transformers at such substations largely come from relatively few suppliers, mostly located in Europe, China, Japan, and the USA. But that's not the principal reason. I rather suspect that the principal reason is related to the stories some years ago that we saw of the attack - obviously staged and planned and executed with professional military precision -  on an electrical substation at the southern tip of California's Silicon Valley. Remember this one?: California Power Substation Attacked in 2013 Is Struck Again.  See also: Attack on California Substation Fuels Grid Security Debate Some argue physical threats are taking a back seat to cybersecurity  You might recall that this attack was executed with precision, and that the attacker(s) was (or were) in and out of the crippled substation before any law enforcement arrived. And the case, so far as we know, is still open. This attack was followed up by physical attacks on the internet in San Francisco, and similar physical attacks on internet cables in Arizona. These are all stories I covered on this website (see: https://gizadeathstar.com/2015/09/those-attacks-on-computer-network-infrastructure-in-the-bay-area-continue/

I cannot help but think that with the electrical substation attacks in recent news that we might be looking at a continuation of the pattern of the California substation attack and the subsequent internet cable attacks of a few years ago. It is almost as if the events of those few years ago were the "practice" or "warm up" sessions for "a main event or events to come." Time will tell, of course, if this high octane speculation holds true. But given the desperation and nihilistic insanity we've seen coming from Mr.  Globalooney and his lackeys, I would not be at all surprised. It's all part of the standard arsenal in their grab bag of "disaster crapitalism"... when the staged fires don't succeed in burning people out of their homes, just stage attacks on their internet or power grid with their sleeper cells...

And as for why it might take two years to replace equipment, perhaps it's time to reconsider making all the components in this country...

... see you on the flip side...

    I get the feeling these weird attacks on infrastructure, factories, etc., are volleys in multiple covert wars: Globaloney faction #1 vs. Globaloney faction #2; NATO vs. Russia; China vs. the U.S.; the Davos crowd vs. the general population; corporate cartel #1 vs. corporate cartel #2; and who knows who else.

    The news “blackout”on this story may be due to the fact that it caused no loss of power to users. “May.” The story is a mess. Mesmarian said he thought the solar power array served a Tesla plant. He is apparently college educated, a dentist, and he goes out of his way – 25 miles northeast of Vegas – to damage the power equipment to make a political statement, and he doesn’t confirm the Tesla link? (Who told him/convinced him it was a Tesla power array?) Then he sets his car on fire near a transformer hoping it will damage the electrical equipment. (Who was his getaway driver? Did he walk? Run? Bicycle the 25 miles back to Vegas? Catch a bus? The license plate and VIN on his burned Camry were a bit of a clue as to who-dunnit. Plus he wore a surgical mask but no hat or other disguise, undermining the “my car was stolen” disclaimer. Plus he wore a shirt with broad black and white stripes for the security video camera – as if to say he had his own prison attire. ( Although certainly he knew orange is the new B&W?) And who are the investigators who say Mesmarian “siphoned” gas from his car? Cars have been equipped with anti-siphoning devices in the line from from gas cap to tank for over 25 years, generally, to prevent gas leaks and fires in rollovers. What does the security video show? An attempt to siphon gas? Then what? And after setting his car on fire and damaging an offline transformer, Tesla is unaffected and MGM switches to the Las Vegas grid and life goes on without interruption. While everybody else is making the news by shooting up power equipment, we get a How-to in Charlie Foxtrot 101. With guns so effective and readily available, why this Goofus routine? Maybe Mesmarian is nuts. Or maybe this is a demonstration of something else? If you have the ability to manipulate someone to carry out a bonehead, self-incriminating sabotage scheme like this, imagine what you could do to a nation by giving them guns. If you can MacGyver people to attack their own country, it’s like announcing you have the power to inflict an auto-immune disease not on an individual but on a national scale against infrastructure necessary to the nation’s health and well-being.

    Projects to strike NATO interests are already pending. Only Vladimir Poutine’s order is needed yet.
    A first option would be so strike french interests outside of France. One can easily imagine a heavy strike on a french military base in Africa, that would be attributed to “terrorists”… By the way this is what routinely happens to american bases in Syria. Naturally, France would be well aware of what the strike is about. (…)

    The hypothesis of a direct military strike by Russia would be considered as the last resort, but an important point has been discussed :
    It appears that in France Macron has no prospective successor that would have the same insane position on this matter. So some people say that once Macron is taken out of the game, whatever successor would not follow the same path towards war against Russia, and this would severely handicap NATO.

    Back to the Future, the Old Stone Age pre-agriculture, these bratty kids are that stupid. As O’Brien in 1984 said to Winston, imagine a boot kicking in a human face forever.

    I would have thought it ‘unwise’ of anyone to p***-off those behind the MGM casino business! Who at least can go back to the electrical grid to keep the coffers full. It’s not what you might call an ‘essential’ business.
    So who and why?
    And why the news blackout? That usually happens with blackmail.
    Maybe the capo wouldn’t pay the ransom.
    Maybe the clue is ‘Vegas’?

    The nasty, but now increasingly famliar, stench of a staged event rises up again, as with most ‘incidents’ of this nature. All of these “incidents” be it spontaneous combustion,’terrorism’, ‘protests’, house fires, wildfires, car fires, pwer outage, cyber outage, weather events, etc etc you name it and all the rest, are more of the same staged reality from the hidden hand, written by the AI movie script they are following. Dipping in and out of the 3D to gauge a response in order to finesse the next big one. Even the lack of corpnews reporting is almost certainly a double bluff, in other words, we are supposed to draw suspicious conclusions from the lack of coverage. Another attempt to psy-op us into a dead-end. Mesmarian btw, has gematria of 93 and 39 – a signature of the usual suspects – Thelema and 93 referencing Crowley’s doctrine of Do What thou Wilt.

    Logical deduction is, that those controlling media are coordinating attack on critical infrastructure.

    Both Vatican and fake Israel are failed states, and burning platforms, that could lash out in distress.

    If a house is on fire, then burning down the rest of the village, would even the playground, and divert attention.

    Cain the stupid isn’t happy, about being overshadowed, by Abel the engineer.

    Out of chaos comes opportunity for those who know what’s going on, and who have money to invest in the right places. The covid scam produced a lot of profits, as did the 2008 GFC, as did the 2001 “terrorist” attacks.

    A side benefit is the creation of impoverishment and helplessness among the common populace, making them even more malleable and ready for false solutions. Just a guess, but could these be precursors to an “internet attack endangering us all”, requiring more control and surveillance and censoring (especially censoring).
    I don’t know if it will be a happy new year, but it might be an interesting one.

    In the UK, we know that the National Grid can be vulnerable to power outages.
    For example, in 2019 when two power stations disconnected from the National Grid for 15 minutes, hundreds of thousands of rail travellers ended up stranded for hours (also the power failure caused computer systems on some trains to crash, leaving them unable to move!). Some airports and traffic lights also went down and caused chaos and severe delays.

    Joseph mentions physical infrastructure being more vulnerable than cyber – but the two are intertwined and there is a golden thread running through both.

      Likewise. Grids & cyberware seem synonymous with media access and end user means. Transmitters/Receivers (in all of their forms to date) won’t work if the local or regional grids get knocked offline from storm, material degradation, or by deliberate designs. Batteries last for a short time on mobile units and backup systems, but the vast majority of folks depend on power at the flip-of-the-switch.

      Corporate scrutiny is probably in play as a few of them are in the power generation business who support various narratives and those outfits that disseminate their views on matters financial, political, and commercial. Drawing attention to potential targets would not be in their best interests, especially, if they’re effective. No revelation there. Silencing thousands affected is difficult to do if not impossible given how media bias has already been highlighted.

      In one’s view, sourcing backups worldwide were considered decades ago. Upgrading the grid(s) are the problem area(s) as they entail investment development(s).
