Monday News Roundup: Trump Legal Team Gets a Divorce and Californians Rise up Against Newsom Curfew

Fraud, fraud, everywhere a fraud. – While your corrupt news media spreads the fear porn related to the China Virus, focusing on nothing but the number of “new cases” in your area and nationally, you are supposed to look the other way when when you see a chart like this telling you the truth about the massive fraud that is taking place in our medical community and political set:

That blue line depicts the national percentage of emergency room visits represented by common flu sufferers during the 2009/10 flu season. That big spike took place during September and October of 2009, the year of the Swine Flu, and follows the curve that the seasonal flu follows pretty much every damn year.

Now, that gray shaded area at the bottom of the chart shows us how that curve for seasonal flu looks this year so far since early September. As you can clearly see, our medical community and government expects you to believe that the common flu infections have suddenly almost disappeared from the face of the earth, representing barely 1% of ER visits, as compared to up to 8% during 2009/10.

Meanwhile, that orange area that spikes during the October/November weeks of this year shows the cases of COVID-type cases that have been reported by our medical community and government. Gosh, what a coincidence.

Do you find that 2020 data to be believable? If not, you are a free-thinking person who possesses the ability to reason logically.

In California, the natives are getting tired of all the COVID BS. – Some Californians are getting a bit tired of all the nonsense, as Gov. Gavin Newsom orders public officials to go into grocery stores and confiscate all turkeys weighing more than 10 lbs. to discourage big Thanksgiving gatherings and vainly pleads with police chiefs and sheriffs to enforce his 10 p.m. statewide curfew order.

In Huntington Beach south of Los Angeles, thousands of Californians took to the streets Sunday night for a post-curfew peaceful protest:

Here are some of the scenes from that protest:

No buildings were burned, no police cars torched, no stores looted and no one was harmed or killed, although one guy was arrested for being drunk and disorderly, because of course at least one guy had to be at a demonstration like this. More importantly, the sheriff of Orange County made no effort at all to enforce Newsom’s abusive, senseless order.

This is what peaceful protest and civil disobedience looks like.

In contrast, here is what a group of Antifa thugs (Biden voters) were doing in Omaha, Nebraska at the same time:

Here’s another Biden voter in New York City last night:

Meanwhile, in Trump legal team land… – Holy crap, what in the wide, wide world of sports is a-goin’ on here?

Honestly, it’s hard to know. Apparently, Rudy Giuliani and Jenna Ellis decided they no longer wanted to associate with Sidney Powell and her “Release the Kraken,” scorched earth rhetoric, so they issued the following statement late Sunday afternoon:

“Sidney Powell is practicing law on her own,” Giuliani and Ellis said in the statement. “She is not a member of the Trump Legal Team. She is also not a lawyer for the President in his personal capacity.”

Yikes. This statement came just three days after Powell had certainly appeared to be a part of the team at the press conference they all jointly conducted on Thursday, and raises legitimate questions about just what in the hell is going on here? Those questions become even more convoluted when you have another prominent attorney, L. Lin Wood, out there filing lawsuits and making media appearances in which he also tosses out strong accusations of nationwide election fraud by the Democrats.

For her own part, Powell threw out a statement of her own:

“I understand today’s press release. I will continue to represent #WeThePeople who had their votes for Trump and other Republicans stolen by massive fraud through Dominion and Smartmatic, and we will be filing suit soon. The chips will fall where they may, and we will defend the foundations of this great Republic. #KrakenOnSteroiods”

Given that Powell had been suspended by Twitter earlier in the day for some reason, she had to rely on surrogates like General Mike Flynn to push that message out into the public domain.

The best guess here is that this all has to do with what is going on in Georgia. There, the Trump legal team is working with RINO Gov. Brian Kemp to mount a recount/audit of the ballots that would include signature matching and other investigative elements that the previous recount did not include in spite of promises made by Sec. of State Brad Raffensperger.

At the same time, Powell has been going around accusing Kemp and Raffensperger of being paid off for agreeing to implement hardware and software from Dominion Systems in their state. It seems likely that Giuliani/Ellis/Trump wanted to distance their efforts from Powell’s rhetoric, given what they are trying to accomplish in the state.

That’s just an educated guess, but one thing I can say for absolute certain sure is that you could never, never, ever make this stuff up. Not in a million gazillion years.

No, Joe McCarthy was way more ethical than this clown. – Jonathan Turley was angered over the weekend by the action of one Democrat member of congress who is trying to convince various state bar associations to disbar about a dozen lawyers for the sin of representing the President of the United States in court cases.

No, I’m not kidding – New Jersey Democrat Bill Pascrell really is trying to do that:

From the report by Turley:

We have been discussing the campaign of harassment and threats against Republican lawyers to get them to drop election challenges. New Jersey Democratic Rep. Bill Pascrell expanded that campaign this week with a malicious and frivolous demand for New York and other states to disbar roughly two dozen lawyers for representing Trump, the Republican party, or the Trump campaign in the litigation.  While Democratic members and the media discuss attacks on democracy and the rule of law, they appear to have little problem with campaigns to threaten and harass both lawyers and legislators for raising questions about the election.

Many of us criticized Rudy Giuliani for his performance in this litigation, particularly the controversial press conference held last week. Indeed, I have previously criticized Giuliani for his public comments and allegations. However, Pascrell wants Giuliani disbarred specifically for filing these legal actions as well as a host of other lawyers.

[End]

Remember this whenever you get that feeling that maybe it would be good to return to “normal” when Donald Trump was not on the political scene: A return to that “normal” means that fascists like Cong. Pascrell are fully in charge of your life.

That is all.

Thursday News Roundup: Newsom Exposed and Cuomo Goes Completely off the Rails

Another big reversal in Wayne County, Michigan. – I discuss the latest reversal by the GOP members of the Wayne County Board of Canvassers elsewhere today. It’s potentially a big deal for a variety of reasons.

Hey, that’s totally believable. – A local TV station in Fulton County, Georgia reported yesterday that one precinct in Atlanta a reported turnout that was 3300% above the number of registered voters living there.

From our Department of Futile Gestures….

God Bless Jim Jordan, but even if San Fran Nan were inclined to worry about election integrity (she isn’t), she’d just put Pencil Neck Adam Schiff in charge of any such investigation so it could be falsified and buried. The House of Representatives has no productive role to play here.

Bring them all home, Mr. President. – Now that he has some loyal people installed at the Pentagon, President Trump is using what could become the final months of his presidency to bring America’s men and women back home from the senseless Middle East and North African wars his predecessors got them involved in over the past 32 years. After announcing such moves related to the 19 year war in Afghanistan and the 18 year war in Iraq, the President is now reportedly preparing to bring most of our people home from the festering hellhole that is Somalia.

From a report at Reuters:

President Donald Trump may withdraw nearly all U.S. troops from Somalia as part of a global pullback that includes reductions of forces in Afghanistan and Iraq, U.S. officials said on Tuesday.

The officials, who spoke on condition of anonymity, said nothing had been finalized and that no orders for Somalia have been received by the U.S. military. But there appeared to be a growing expectation that drawdown orders would be coming soon.

The Pentagon on Tuesday announced that Trump will reduce U.S. forces in Afghanistan from 4,500 to 2,500 by Jan. 15, just five days before his term ends, and cut U.S. forces in Iraq by 500 to the same level.

The United States has about 700 troops in Somalia focused on helping local forces defeat the al Qaeda-linked al Shabaab insurgency. The mission receives little attention in the United States but is considered a cornerstone of the Pentagon’s global efforts to combat al Qaeda.

Trump’s newly-installed acting Defense Secretary Christopher Miller, a former Green Beret and counterterrorism official, is taking a hard look at Somalia and could opt for keeping a minimal presence there and stop relying on large deployments to combat al Shabaab.

[End]

If President Trump really wants to take this global, he should look at getting our remaining forces out of freaking Germany, where America has spent the last 75 years defending the country that started two World Wars from an “enemy” – the Soviet Union – that has not even existed for 30 long years now. Now, that would be a wonderful thing.

Cuomo goes completely off the rails. – Governor Andrew Cuomo held one of his Fidel Castro-like press events yesterday, ostensibly designed to provide the public with useful information and comfort about the draconian new shut-down restrictions he is imposing on them yet again.

Instead, the Central American dictator-in-training went completely off the rails, blaming his citizens for the problems with the China Virus, and haranguing one reporter who simply asked whether or not the state’s schools would be shut down.

Here are a couple of examples:

But Cuomo’s not the only despot-in-training. – Indeed, from New Jersey to Pennsylvania to Michigan to Nevada to California, the nation is filled to the gills with communist Democrat governors who are just itching for the chance to move to Honduras or Nicaragua and spend their lives issuing edicts depriving the masses of any human rights at all.

In California, Gavin Newsom continues to do his best imitation of Castro’s predecessor, the pompous and arrogant Fulgencio Batista, imposing dramatic restrictions on the masses while flaunting them in public. In the latest example of Newsom’s boundless hubris, he imposed new restrictions on the state’s restaurants and on Thanksgiving gatherings, then flew up to Napa for a ritzy, maskless, non-social distanced dinner at the fabulous French Laundry restaurant with a couple dozen of the state’s elite in celebration of some lobbyist’s birthday.

Photos show CA Gov Gavin Newsom without a mask at dinner | The Sacramento Bee

Astonishingly, two of the guests at the dinner were California Medical Assocation CEO Dustin Corcoran and CMA’s lobbyist Janus Norman.

You seriously could never make this stuff up in a million gazillion years, folks.

From a story at Politico:

California Medical Association officials were among the guests seated next to Gov. Gavin Newsom at a top California political operative’s opulent birthday dinner at the French Laundry restaurant this month.

CEO Dustin Corcoran and top CMA lobbyist Janus Norman both joined the dinner at the French Laundry, an elite Napa fine dining restaurant, to celebrate the 50th birthday of lobbyist and longtime Newsom adviser Jason Kinney, a representative of the powerful interest group confirmed Wednesday morning.

Both Norman and Corcoran are friends of Kinney, as is Newsom, who referred this week to his 20-year friendship with Kinney. In a photo obtained by Fox LA, Norman is clearly visible seated to Newsom’s left.

The presence of CMA brass could amplify criticisms of the dinner occurring despite coronavirus restrictions that have limited Californians’ movements and constrained businesses. While Newsom and Kinney’s lobbying firm have said the meal abided by public health rules, it has struck a chord with Californians who have assailed the upscale soiree as hypocritical as coronavirus cases surge.

The state has issued guidelines prohibiting more than three households from gathering privately — a limit clearly exceeded by the French Laundry dinner. However, the state has intentionally allowed restaurants to seat people from more than three households together.

[End]

Oh. I would feel sympathy for California’s masses, but hey, they voted for this jackass in overwhelming numbers. Or at least the state’s Democrat election officials told them they did.

Think about it.

Gavin Newsom’s Unbridled Energy Hubris

Three big oil and gas-related stories this week were all interrelated with one another, though few really understand that to be the case. Those stories were:

 

 

For Governor Newsom, banning hydraulic fracturing – or “fracking” as it has come to be called – in his state is a relatively simple matter in what has become, for all intents and purposes, a one-party state. All he has to do is convince his overwhelming majorities in both houses of California’s state assembly to pass a bill mandating that all fracking operations cease within the state’s borders by a date certain.

Such a move would of course eliminate thousands of oil and gas-related jobs in the state, but most of those are concentrated in Republican Kern County and the surrounding parts of the Central Valley, over which the assembly’s Democrats would have little concern. Besides, they can all just respond to Republican and industry complaints with the Obama-era pretense that all those lost jobs and more will be made up by the heavily-subsidized wind and solar industries. It will be akin to former President Obama telling West Virginia coal miners and Ohio steel workers that their jobs are never coming back and they should all go learn to code.

Replacing the state’s millions of gas and diesel autos with electric vehicles will be far more complicated. Newsom’s order gets that ball rolling by requiring the California Air Resources Board to implement the phaseout of new gas-powered cars and light trucks in the coming years, and also require medium and heavy-duty trucks to be zero-emission by 2045 where possible. Sounds simple, right?

But here’s the thing about all of that: The generation and provision of energy is basically a zero-sum game. When you ban one energy source, you must figure out a way to generate the same amount of energy by another source. You either do that or you accept the reality that energy will become scarce, and thus far more expensive so that consumers demand less of it, and write off the negative economic consequences that will inevitably result.

Saturday News Roundup: Gavin Newsom’s 3rd World California; TDS Reaches New Depths

The Green New Deal, illustrated:

Image may contain: text

The problem in California right now, the reason the state is suffering from rolling blackouts impacting millions, is because California Democrats have over the last quarter century intentionally prevented utility companies from building enough of those “backup power stations” you see in the second panel. So, when you have record high temperatures in parts of the state and massive wildfires (mainly caused by other Democrat policies that prevent proper forest management) in other parts of the state, you end up with residents of the state with the world’s 10th-largest economy living in what is effectively a third world country.

This is the single best photo I’ve seen that illustrates the current state California under Gavin Newsom:

Image

It’s perfect. Everything about it.

UPDATE: Just came across this video clip on Twitter. It is also pitch-perfect:

 

A new low for Trump Derangement Syndrome. – The nation’s Democrat/Media/liberal/socialist/communist community reacted to President Trump’s second Nobel Peace Prize nomination in a week on Friday with predictable irrational outrage. Here is an American president, achieving what his predecessors have tried for decades to accomplish. If Barack Obama or Bill Clinton had been able to do exactly what Trump has done in the Middle East and in the Serbia/Kosovo situation, they’d have been erecting statues in his honor.

But, in the current TDS madness that infests the American Left, anything Trump does must – MUST – be bad. There is no alternative. If Trump found a cure for cancer, it would be bad, and Anderson Cooper would hold a townhall on CNN with half a dozen Democrats talking about how great having cancer is for our society.

You know that’s true. Indeed, Kamala Harris is so anxious to appeal to the TDS crowd – and probably afflicted with it herself – that she came out last week in opposition to a vaccine for COVID-19, if it’s produced during the Trump Administration. She really did that, regardless of how she is attempting to walk it all back now.

This is how crazy and frankly stupid and anti-American the American Left truly is. Nowhere is this TDS madness more clearly illustrated than a piece published yesterday by The Atlantic, which is fresh off of pushing the “Trump hates the military” hoax. Yesterday, The Atlantic published a piece written by some clown named Graeme Wood who hysterically suggests that, because Trump has been nominated for two well-deserved Nobel Peace Prizes, the Nobel Peace Prize should be eliminated.

No, really, he did. I swear I do not make this stuff up. Really, who could?

Here’s an excerpt from Wood’s hysterical screed:

Trolls are a Scandinavian invention, straight from the frigid sagas of Norse mythology, but Christian Tybring-Gjedde, a Norwegian parliamentarian, swears that he is not one. Observers of his antics this week could be forgiven for thinking otherwise. On Wednesday, he announced that he had nominated Donald J. Trump for the Nobel Peace Prize. “Can you name a person who has done more for peace than President Trump?” Tybring-Gjedde asked me, insisting that the question was a serious one. Kayleigh McEnany, the White House press secretary, agreed. ”This is a hard-earned and well-deserved honor for the president,” she said. Tybring-Gjedde defended his nomination on Fox News remotely, and to me in person at a café in Oslo. “Do we give the prize to Greta Thunberg, for screaming about the environment?” he asked. “The agreement he made between Israel and the United Arab Emirates could mean peace between Israel and the Arab world. That is like the [Berlin] Wall falling down.” Today the White House reportedly will announce that Bahrain, another Gulf monarchy, will recognize Israel.

If Trump wins the prize, it will be the fourth Nobel awarded for peace between Israel and its neighbors. (The announcement will come on October 9.) That will make Arab-Israeli peace mediators more successful at charming the Nobel Committee than the International Committee of the Red Cross, which has won three times in the prize’s 120-year history, but still less successful than my favorite, which is no one at all. The committee has declined to award a peace prize 19 times, most recently in 1972. (The next year, in a decision so trollish it might have come out of the Prose Edda, they awarded the prize to Henry Kissinger.) Giving the peace prize to no one at all is a tradition the Nobel Committee should revive, perhaps on a permanent basis. The record of achievement of the peace laureates is so spotty, and the rationales for their awards so eclectic, that the committee should take a long break to consider whether peace is a category coherent enough to be worth recognizing. Peace had its chance, and blew it. The Trump nomination—one of hundreds, including this second from a Swede—helps show why.

[End]

So, basically, we see that Wood is not just a TDS-mad Trump hater, he’s also an anti-Semite who wants Isreal to be destroyed. Thus, he’s a great candidate to eventually be put on the Editorial Board for the New York Times or in a high position within the Democrat National Committee.

You really could not ever make these people up if they did not already sadly exist.

Meanwhile, in Portland, Oregon… – The 100 days of fun in Riot City, USA were cancelled on Friday:

But hey, there was still fun to be found in the nation’s capital! After Chuck Schumer and his fellow despicable Senate Democrats killed the follow-up stimulus legislation this week, there was only one thing for the communist rioters who call themselves Black Lives Matter to do, wasn’t there?

That’s right: They showed up to protest the death of this bill, which EVERY REPUBLICAN IN THE SENATE SUPPORTED, at the home of … wait for it… oh, you have to wait for this one …. MITCH MCCONNELL.

Again, I swear to you that I do not. make. this. stuff. up.:

These people are despicable.

Queen Nancy Personifies the Democrat Party’s Contempt for Ordinary Americans

So, why do we care where Queen Nancy gets her hair done? – The answer to that is simple, isn’t it? It’s because she has been one of the loudest Democrat voices over the last six months lecturing the little people of America to stay locked up in their homes and only venture out when wearing a mask. She’s been one of the most ardent fans of the lockdowns mandated by despicable Democrat governors like her step-nephew Gavin Newsom, putting millions of little people out of work and shuttering hundreds of thousands of businesses.

Even worse than her act of intentionally violating nephew Gavin’s lockdown/mask orders on Sunday by intimidating a single mother salon owner to open her shuttered business just for her decripit, stringy mane was Queen Nancy’s response to getting caught. She couldn’t lower herself to do the simple thing: To admit her wrongdoing and ask to be forgiven. Instead, she haughtily claimed at a press conference to having been “set up” and demanded that the salon owner she had intimidated apologize to her.

Nancy Pelosi says her visit to a hair salon was a 'setup' - Los Angeles Times

This would seem a small matter were it not so perfectly emblematic of the dismissive stance taken towards ordinary Americans not just by Queen Nancy and her despicable fellow Democrats, but many Republicans who fester in the DC Swamp as well.

It is a sad fact of America’s current state of being that, aside from President Donald Trump, several members of his cabinet and senior advisory staff and a handful of members of congress, almost the entirety of the District of Columbia has become hostile territory. About 95% of the national news media is supportive of that contempt for the American people. Even worse, the Democrat Party funds two different domestic terrorist groups – Antifa and BLM – whose operatives travel the country burning and looting vast swaths of Democrat-controlled cities at will, knowing the Democrat mayors will not allow the police to properly deal with them.

Here’s a prime example of these terrorists acting with impunity in Washington, DC just a few hours before this was written:

The police can’t act because the Mayor won’t allow it. The Mayor isn’t home, so she couldn’t care less about the disturbance and threat these thugs are creating for her neighbors. You think you’re safe in your home because your town has ordinances that designate this to be criminal behavior? Better check to see which political party your mayor is affiliated with, because you might be surprised to discover exactly how unsafe you really are.

The Democrat Party also has an online army, the social media outrage mob that attacks, doxxes and cancels anyone the Democrats point their gnarly fingers towards. The single mother salon owner, Erica Kious, made an appearance on Tucker Carlson’s show last night. She told Carlson that Nephew Gavin’s lockdown order has caused her to lose 60% of her clients and most of her stylists and that her business is dead.

Even worse, she told Carlson that she will have to leave San Francisco after being attacked by the Democrat outrage mob on social media with the most vile and disgusting kinds of death threats imaginable.

It’s a disgrace. This is behavior that no civilized society should allow, but that’s the whole point: The Democrat Party is working hard to ensure that America loses its status as a civilized society.

See, it would be impossible to “transform” a free nation of 330 million people who exist as a cohesive unit, a people who share common values, a common outlook and common goals. It is far, far easier to foment a Marxist-style revolution within a population that is completely divided among itself, shares no common values or goals and is already assaulting one another online and actively attacking one another in the streets.

Every goal the Democrat Party has pursued over the past half-century has been designed to divide the American population along class, race and religious lines. They’ve used education policy for this, they’ve used tax policy for this, they’ve used civil rights policy for this, they’ve used housing policies and healthcare policies, immigration polices and foreign policy for this. Hell, they’ve even used energy and environmental policy to advance their divisive goals.

Democrats like Nancy Pelosi now believe that they are on the cusp of consolidating that half century of hard work in this year’s election. Her contempt for and hostility towards Erica Kious is just the manifestation of the way she feels towards all of us.

In their path stands a single obstacle: Donald J. Trump. He’s it. He is all the rest of America has.

You give this woman a majority in the House and Joe Biden/Kamala Harris in the White House, you will not enjoy the result.

That is all.

WINNING ALERT: Dow 29,000, NASDAQ 12,000, S&P All-Time High, Pelosi Angry

Just thought a little good news was in order here. Today, in response to continuing positive economic news and growing optimism about President Donald Trump’s re-election chances, the stock market rocketed skywards into new record territory.

The NASDAQ shot over 12,000 for the first time to reach a new all-time high. The S&P 500 closed at 3,581, also a new record close.

Meanwhile the Dow Jones Industrial average rose by 455 points to close above 29,000 for the first time this year, finishing the day at 29,101. The Dow has now regained 98% of its losses early this year, and is within 400 points of its all-time record close.

The Trump economy just will not be held back.

Recognize that this massive growth has been achieved with despicable Democrat governors in states like New York, California, New Jersey, Michigan, Pennsylvania and else where keeping their economies shut down for no reason other than cynical attempts to influence the outcome of the November elections. Sadly, they have been joined by a handful of Republican governors in states like Alabama, Arizona and Ohio in those efforts.

But no matter, the Trump economy just shrugs them off like flies on a horse’s rump, and keeps on moving ahead.

Meanwhile, in other wonderful news, Queen Nancy Pelosi put out a statement today claiming she was “set up” by the hair salon owner – who is a single mother, no less – she actually intimidated into opening on Sunday. Taking no responsibility for not knowing the current state of COVID restrictions mandated by her own step-nephew, Dictator Gavin Newsom, she said the salon owed her an apology for causing her office to be inundated with complaints:

Here’s the deal, folks: Queen Nancy is lying through her dentures about all of this. She is, without question, the very worst person in this country.

Queen Pelosi Visits Shuttered Hair Salon for a “Blowout”

Queen Nancy the Beast needed her hair done. Unfortunately, she found herself at home in San Francisco, safely ensconced behind the massive security wall surrounding her palatial estate. The problem was that San Francisco is in California, a state where Dictator Gavin Newsom is keeping the salons closed for no real reason other than politics. Plus, Newsom has decreed that one must – MUST, I say – not venture out into public without wearing a mask, which Queen Nancy doesn’t like to do. Unless, of course, there is a virtue-signaling reason to put one on for the TV cameras, because Queen Nancy does love her virtue signals.

What to do, oh, what to do?

But fear not, for Queen Nancy is privileged. Why, she’s even special – just ask her. So special that Dictator Newsom is her nephew, if only by marriage, but that’s special enough to intimidate most Californians. Even California business owners who own a salon that is officially closed.

And so it was that on Sunday afternoon, when Queen Nancy really, really, really needed a “blowout”, whatever that might be, she contacted a hair stylist to demand that she meet her at the shuttered salon where she used to work – you know, when she was allowed to work by Dictator Newsom – and restore her gnarly, decrepit hair to its former glory, or to as much glory as it can muster these days, which isn’t much.

The poor stylist knew she had little choice, given all the damage Queen Nancy and her step-nephew could to to her life if she refused. So she got permission from the shocked salon owner and met Queen Nancy at the salon, where this ensued:

And thus it was that Queen Nancy had her personal need fulfilled while her step-nephew, Dictator Newsom, ensured that the little people of California remained suffering with bad hair.

This concludes your Despicable Democrat Fairy Tale for today.

Democrat Energy Policies on Display in California Rolling Blackouts

It’s 93 degrees in Southern California on Tuesday, and 10 million Californians are without power to their homes as a result.

I kid you not.

The corrupt hacks in the Democrat news media are trying to pretend that, as Politico claims, “everyone faces blame,” but the truth is that these blackouts are a direct result of proscriptive, Green New Deal-style energy policies adopted by Democrat-dominated governments over the last quarter of a century.

Here’s an excerpt from that Policito report:

The exact root of California’s rolling blackouts is still unclear as more power outages loom, and that’s allowed everyone to point fingers.

Energy experts Monday cited a litany of potential causes for the rotating outages that affected hundreds of thousands of California residents Friday and Saturday nights: ballooning demand, inadequate transmission, an overreliance on renewable energy and natural gas plant challenges during hot weather.

While California braced for another round of rolling blackouts Monday night, the state’s grid operator held off for a second straight night, citing cooler than expected weather and widespread conservation. It also came as Gov. Gavin Newsom questioned all of the state’s electricity players about why the outages occurred and faced blowback from frustrated residents. Still, the state says more blackouts affecting millions of residents could occur this week as a historic heat wave endures.

California has endured planned blackouts in recent years as a wildfire prevention measure. But it was the Golden State’s first round of rolling blackouts related to supply since 2001, when Enron and other energy traders manipulated California’s market.

[End]

Note how the corrupt Politico hacks managed to insert a reference to Enron, a company that did indeed manipulate markets in California and other parts of the country, but which hasn’t even existed for almost 20 years. Note also, however, the key admission that Democrat governors Jerry Brown and Gavin Newsom have both used rolling blackouts intentionally as bogus “fire prevention measures”, an effort designed to condition residents of the Golden State to accept such systemic losses of power as just another part of the Democrat-induced “new normal.”

Understand what this means, folks: To California’s depraved Democrats, rolling blackouts are not an inconvenience to be avoided, but a public conditioning tool to be intentionally deployed during major emergencies.

The next three paragraphs of this lede-burying story reveal the real nature of the issue:

Earlier Monday, the California Independent System Operator blamed Friday’s outages on “high heat and increased electricity demand.” Yet some energy experts noted that demand wasn’t particularly higher than normal, as is typical for weekends, and CAISO had predicted it would have adequate reserves on hand for the 80 percent of California’s grid that it manages.

“What’s weird about what happened is they were adequate until they weren’t,” said Michael Wara, director of Stanford University’s climate and energy program and a member of the state’s Catastrophic Wildfire Cost and Recovery Commission. “It seems as if certain power plants for some reason were not able to deliver on the commitments to supply reserves and also supply energy.”

Because the Friday outage started around 6:30 p.m., when solar is ramping down and gas-fired plants are ramping up, gas is the likely immediate culprit, Wara said. “The timing of all this strongly suggests problems with gas plants,” he said.

[End]

Why yes, there are “problems with gas plants” in California: There aren’t enough of them, because the Democrat-controlled government in Sacramento has spent the last 20-plus years making them increasingly costly to permit and build. In addition, the absurdly impractical emissions goals adopted by a string of leftwing governors have given public utilities like CAISO no choice but to resort to a massive over-reliance of intermittent sources like wind and solar while at the same time under-building new base-load capacity fired by natural gas plants.

Indeed, it is not even possible at this point to build any form of true baseload power plants in California other than combined cycle natural gas, as coal and nuclear has been basically outlawed by the communist Democrats in the state. And so, we have the rolling blackouts day after day during a summer that is not particularly hot by California standards and which is positively mild by standards seen in other southwestern states.

What we are in fact seeing taking place in California this week is nothing more or less than a preview of the kinds of summer days filled with rolling blackouts that the energy/environment policies endorsed by Joe Biden and Kamala Harris would produce for the entire nation.

If you like your air conditioning and want to keep it, vote for Donald Trump. It really is that simple.

That is all.

The Corona Panic Porn Just Never Ends

California Governor Gavin Newsom, a despicable Democrat, tanked a major stock rally today by announcing he was re-closing his state. Newsom attributes his latest irrational, probably illegal action to his state’s rising number of “cases” of COVID-19, a number everyone knows is vastly inflated and fraudulent.

As Newsom takes this action motivated solely by politics, the folks at the Daily Caller thought it was important to remind readers what was taking place in Los Angeles a month ago, because Newsom says this is still ok.:

Oh. Any questions?

Meanwhile, in other COVID-19 news… – Alex Berenson has an important CORONAPANIC UPDATE from Florida:

Oh.

Remember the goal in Florida is to inflate the numbers so high that they justify cancelling the GOP National Convention. So, expect them to go much, much higher in the next 2-3 weeks.

And a fair warning from @EthicalSkeptic about the flood of “new” deaths to come, as states that have withheld that data will now start claiming it is all “covid-related” to keep the panic going:

Despicable.

But none of this fits the narrative, so, carry on.

That is all.
