California Governor and tyrant Gavin Newsom (D) set a host of restrictions for the people of California over gathering for the Thanksgiving holiday, and now a utility company is threatening to cut off power, claiming it would be done to prevent fires due to dry conditions and high winds. If you believe that reason I have some wonderful beachfront property in Nevada I want to sell you.
Edison International might be cutting the power off to Southern California homes and businesses on Thanksgiving to “prevent fires.”
The forecast is calling for strong winds on Thursday and Friday and the utility company could resort to cutting power to prevent electrical lines from starting fires. Of course, that’s a load of bunk. It’s all part of the Democratic Party’s top-down conditioning of their citizens to conform to government rule over every aspect of their lives. Now not only are Californians not allowed to celebrate the Thanksgiving holiday with friends and loved ones, but they may be sitting at home alone with no power. It doesn’t get much more Orwellian than that period.
If the socialist government of Sacramento keeps up at this pace the people of California will soon go back to the horse and buggy.
As reported by Bloomberg:
“Edison International could cut power to some Southern California homes and businesses on Thanksgiving as strong winds are forecast to return to the rain-deprived region.
The utility owner hasn’t determined how many customers could be affected by the outages, intended to prevent power lines from sparking wildfires during the gusts. Power would likely be out until Friday evening, Southern California Edison spokeswoman Taelor Bakewell said. The state’s utilities have resorted to preemptively cutting power after electrical lines touched off a series of deadly blazes in recent years.
Critical fire weather conditions could develop Thursday afternoon through Saturday, according to a National Weather Service forecast. Although the annual rainy season has begun in Northern California and snows have returned to the Sierra Nevada Mountains, Southern California has remained largely dry. As a result, a record-breaking fire season that has already seen more than 4.2 million acres burned across the state this year could linger into December.”
Over 1.5 million went without power last Fall when Pacific Gas & Electric (PG&E) cut off their electricity in order to “prevent dangerous wildfires.”
Californians went through some rough hardships last year when they cut power over Gavin Newsome’s orders. Now you know why so many Californians are moving out and heading to states that don’t have these types of problems. A major problem with that is that it seems that the same dopey Californians who voted in ways that destroyed the once great state – i.e. for Democrats – are continuing to vote the same stupid way in their new home states where they fled the tyranny and incompetence. They don’t understand that they are the problem.
There’s just something wrong with the timing of this. I can pretty much guarantee you that Gavin Newsom will be enjoying a wonderful Thanksgiving dinner with his family and friends, where there will be no mask wearing indoors and no social distancing, not unlike the birthday party he got caught attending last week where pictures surfaced of the governor sitting at a table with government types and big donors alike where no one was wearing a mask or social distancing.
So what has the socialism of the California government brought to the people of the state: a serious homeless problem where garbage, human feces, and needles are strewn about on the ground outside businesses, public parks and residential homes, power outages that remind Californians of why they recalled Governor Gray “Grayout” Davis and elected the Terminator. A lot of people don’t know this, but California is the richest and the poorest state in the country. Hollywood and other industries in California make it the richest in the nation, but then the cost of living, especially housing costs, devour middle class residents’ earnings to the point where many cannot afford to live there anymore.
