Tulsi Gabbard on Tucker: ‘I Stand Against Everything’ Hillary Represents

It’s a fight!

On Friday night, Democratic presidential candidate Tulsi Gabbard stopped by to talk to Tucker Carlson on his ever-popular Fox show.

Tulsi had a lot to say — about everyone’s favorite 2016 apologist, Hillary Rodham You-Know-Who.

Though Republicans reportedly reign supreme in the crazy-conspiracy-theorist realm, Hillary’s clearly been (Alex) Jonesing for the throne.

Reasons for her electoral defeat have included Russia, racism, and — as I covered recently — 10-year-old children.

And amid a flurry what some may call derangement, a snide snowflake has fallen: Clinton’s castigation of Tulsi as a “Russian asset.”

On former Obama advisor David Plouffe’s podcast earlier this week, the former First Lady said, “She’s the favorite of the Russians.”

Hillary claimed those Russians have a dadgum “bunch of sites and bots and other ways of supporting her so far.”

Tulsi hasn’t been a fan of such:

While talking to Tucker, the candidate characterized Hillary’s opposition to her as — necessarily — also being against “every veteran in this country, every service member, every American, anyone watching at home fighting for peace and who was calling for an end to these regime change wars.”

When asked by Tucker why Hillary’s targeting her, Tulsi called out the erstwhile governor’s wife and told her, essentially, to step off:

“Ultimately she knows she can’t control me. I stand against everything that she represents and if I’m elected president. If I’m the Democratic nominee and elected president, she will not be able to control me. She won’t be able to manipulate me. She won’t be able to continue to work from behind the curtains, to continue these regime change wars that have been so costly.”


She’s certainly nodded to a blindingly obvious double standard, easily seen in light of the recent George W. Bush/Ellen hubbub (here). In the aftermath of Ellen and George yukkin’ it up, select public voices cried foul on social media, asserting Bush should be tried for war crimes. But the War in Afghanistan was greenlighted by the only branch that can do so, and it ain’t the Executive. Congress voted on war, and those “Yeas” included Joe Biden, Chuck Schumer, Dianne Feinstein, Harry Reid, and that great celebrity-endorsed paragon, Mrs. Bill Clinton herself.

Back to Tulsi on Tucker, the 2020 hopeful said the blood of her “brothers and sisters in uniform” who lost their lives in Iraq — in a “war she championed” — is “on her hands.”

Here’s a mouthful:

“[She’s attacking me] because I am standing up and speaking out strongly against the Hillary Clinton legacy, the warmongering legacy of waging these regime change wars, continuing to escalate these tensions between the United States, nuclear armed countries like Russia, China, this nuclear arms race bringing more profits to the military-industrial complex.”

In the words of Taylor Swift, we’ve got some bad blood.

Barbra Streisand Tweets Cartoon of Nancy Pelosi Impaling Trump to Death

Barbra Streisand used to be known for her acting and her singing.

But in recent years, she’s been more in the news and more known for her intense hatred for President Donald Trump.

Like many among the Hollywood left, she suffers severe Trump Derangement Syndrome, even claiming that it was Trump’s fault she had gained weight after he won the presidency. She had promised that she would move to Australia or Canada if he won, but never went through with it.

But she went more than beyond the pale on Saturday, tweeting out a grisly cartoon of a huge pair of stilettos, one marked “Pelosi” which impaled Trump, with what appeared to be blood flowing out of his chest.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) and the president were involved in a contentious meeting at the White House on Wednesday that she walked out of and over which she attacked Trump.

They’ll also been involved in an impeachment battle, with Pelosi trying to cater to her base by pushing impeachment but not holding a formal vote for an official inquiry and the White House calling it a sham and an illegitimate witch hunt.

Streisand has tweeted a lot of criticism of Trump in the past. Just the past couple of days she’s tweeted claiming he was unfit and posted another cartoon showing him crushed by a huge peach.

Donald Trump, Jr. called Streisand out and also noted how the media wasn’t treating her violent cartoon the way they treated a meme video last week that showed a fake Trump shooting logos of news networks.

MSM media flipped out at that and tried to blame Trump for it, yet seem oddly quiet on Streisand’s post.

Streisand’s post is also still up, apparently not sufficiently offensive to Twitter.

Double standards strike once again.

Harold Finch Comments on a Tale of Two Pictures (Me, too)

Intrepid independent researcher @NameRedacted was suspended multiple times on Twitter for what amounted to hurting the feelings of leftists and challenging their blatant lies. In his final incarnation, he was “Harold Finch,” and after being suspended for the final time has subsequently moved to Telegram where he runs a repository consisting of important factoids, linked articles, and personal commentary available to the masses. He can be found here.

Sometimes his poignant commentary deserves a much wider audience, and San Fran Nan’s staged walkout of the meeting with President Trump the other day provided the impetus for this blast. I will add my own two cents at the end.

Before getting to our commentary, here is the what transpired at the meeting:

President Trump and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., heated up their ongoing war of words after a White House meeting on Syria devolved into name-calling and led to Democrats storming out, with both sides accusing the other of a “meltdown.” Pelosi, along with Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., and House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer, D-Md., walked out of the meeting Wednesday afternoon, which had been intended to discuss the administration’s decision to pull troops out of northern Syria. That decision has sparked bipartisan criticism that the decision betrays the Kurds, while giving a boost to ISIS.

White House press secretary Stephanie Grisham dismissed the [Democrat] reports about the meeting [Cvrk comment: they ran to the press microphones in a staged event after walking out of the meeting to spin it like they always do]:

“The President was measured, factual and decisive, while Speaker Pelosi’s decision to walk out was baffling, but not surprising,” Grisham said. “She had no intention of listening or contributing to an important meeting on national security issues. While democratic leadership chose to storm out and get in front of the cameras to whine, everyone else in the meeting chose to stay in the room and work on behalf of this country.”

Read the rest here. That pretty much says it all, but there are a couple pictures from the event that provide a lot more than simple context, as Harold Finch notes! Without further ado, here is his analysis….

This White House meeting that included hysterics by Nancy Pelosi can really be defined as a tale of two pictures. The first is unhinged Pelosi lecturing the man who writes the letters to the families of the fallen soldiers (the meetings centered on “Turkey and the Kurds”). Check out the first picture here:

Westlake Legal Group First-pic-201x300 Harold Finch Comments on a Tale of Two Pictures (Me, too) Uncategorized Turkey Politics Policy National Security Nancy Pelosi Middle East Liberal Elitism ISIS Front Page Stories Foreign Policy Featured Story donald trump democrats Democrat Lies Abuse of Power

Note carefully that her body language screams out of control, rude, and disrespectful. And Chuck Schumer smirking like a childish teenager watching the mouthy kid run her mouth at the Teacher. This is supposed to be a national security meeting on events in Syria. The Democrats are acting like they are the Commander in Chief berating an officer who is giving them advice they don’t want to hear. They’re drunk on Power. They’re demanding the President start a war with a NATO member and sacrifice our soldiers, all while they refuse to vote to authorize use of force much less vote to declare war on Turkey. That means this cry for war isn’t even a serious one. They don’t believe in it enough to hold a vote. They want President Trump to get into an ugly quagmire that bleeds us white to help them in 2020 election. They don’t care about Kurds. They CERTAINLY don’t care about American Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen, Marines.

Then there is the second picture which is QUITE a contrast!

Westlake Legal Group Second-pic-203x300 Harold Finch Comments on a Tale of Two Pictures (Me, too) Uncategorized Turkey Politics Policy National Security Nancy Pelosi Middle East Liberal Elitism ISIS Front Page Stories Foreign Policy Featured Story donald trump democrats Democrat Lies Abuse of Power

In this picture, we have the President, the Secretary of Defense, the National Security Advisor, the Chairmen of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, the House Minority Leader, and others. In this picture, the President’s body language says he rejects her attack and is insulted. You can see it in his face he is insulted. This man writes every letter to families of those Mil families who loved one’s life is lost. He sees their pain up close & face to face. Their lives matter to him. He’s sitting down. He’s not aggressive in posture, but he’s offended.

The Chairman of JCS is looking down ignoring Pelosi. See his shoulder? US Army Special Forces & Ranger Tabs. Chest full of medals. He doesn’t take her seriously. His hands clasped likely praying. This is serious business. Everyone on this side of the table is sober & here for serious business. No laughing. No mocking. No insults. The SECDEF is clearly tense, with hands clasped, lips parsed, and a stern brow. He’s seething mad but determined to hide it.

Here’s the whole picture for comparison purposes:

Westlake Legal Group Third-pic-620x413 Harold Finch Comments on a Tale of Two Pictures (Me, too) Uncategorized Turkey Politics Policy National Security Nancy Pelosi Middle East Liberal Elitism ISIS Front Page Stories Foreign Policy Featured Story donald trump democrats Democrat Lies Abuse of Power

Everyone else on the President’s side of the table, including the House minority leader Kevin McCarthy, is embarrassed by and disgusted with Pelosi, Hoyer and Schumer. It’s clear the three of them never intended for this to be a good faith meeting. This was Pelosi threatening the President and he, his advisers, the Republicans, and the national security staff having none of their childishness. No one accepted the Democrats’ putting politics before America’s national security and the lives of our troops. The only skin in the game that the Democrats have is crass partisan politics; the lives of our troops are merely chess pieces in their quest for political power.

Here is a final picture, showing the President making a measured statement to the lesser-ranking Democrats who remained in the meeting.

Westlake Legal Group Fourth-pic-620x405 Harold Finch Comments on a Tale of Two Pictures (Me, too) Uncategorized Turkey Politics Policy National Security Nancy Pelosi Middle East Liberal Elitism ISIS Front Page Stories Foreign Policy Featured Story donald trump democrats Democrat Lies Abuse of Power

This is the aftermath: when Nancy Pelosi, Chuck Schumer and Steny Hoyer couldn’t force the Commander in Chief into a bloody quagmire in Syria a year before a presidential election, they threw a temper tantrum and stormed out.

Let me be blunt: the Democrats don’t give a flying f**k about America, our troops, the Kurds, or about YOU whom they are supposedly serving. The *ONLY* thing the Democrats care about is obtaining AND KEEPING political power AT ANY COST.

The moral of this sordid story is, Ddn’t ever let these dangerous people have power. It is CRITICAL to the safety of our nation that we take the House away from Pelosi &and further marginalize Chuck Schumer. You have a choice in 2020, America: a president and Congress who want the wars ended and the troops to come home, or a resident and congress who want endless wars and endless sacrifice of American lives to keep them in power. Choose wisely.

End of Finch’ commentary

A couple of points to add to Finch’s excellent synopsis:

  • San Fran Nan is concerned that pulling out 26 (!) special forces soldiers off the Syria-Turkey border is going to let ISIS back in the game? That’s laughable, particularly after her total silence during the years in which Obama allowed ISIS grow from nothing into a threat!
  • This isn’t the first time that they’ve pulled this stunt (running to a media microphone to spin a contentious meeting with @POTUS). This is what career politicians do; non-politicians and problem-solvers like @POTUS work through differences and deliver the goods!

Finally, here is the most accurate pictorial characterization of that White House meeting. Unbelievably spot on!

Unhinged New York Couple Harasses Rand Paul in a California Restaurant

Westlake Legal Group Screen-Shot-2019-10-19-at-5.20.19-PM Unhinged New York Couple Harasses Rand Paul in a California Restaurant Rand Paul liberals acting badly Liberalism Is a Mental Disorder Front Page Stories Front Page Featured Story Featured Post Conservatives Congress Angry liberals Allow Media Exception

Screenshot from this video

Liberals have a bad habit of harassing GOP lawmakers.

This seemed to get worse after Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) endorsed the practice, telling people to “get up” in the faces of Trump officials and letting them know that they were “not welcome anywhere” wherever people saw them.

Many Trump officials and GOP lawmakers have since been harassed in restaurants and other locations including former Press Secretary Sarah Sanders and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY).

On Friday, Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) and an aide were confronted by a New York couple while in a California restaurant for lunch. Paul was in the area promoting his book, “The Case Against Socialism.”

If there’s anyone who knows about the crazy folks on the left behaving badly toward him, it is certainly Rand Paul.

Paul has been shot at by a Bernie Bro at during the GOP baseball practice shooting, a shooting meant to take out GOP lawmakers where 4 were wounded including House Minority Whip Steve Scalise (R-LA). A crazy man threatened to hack him and his family to pieces. And he was tackled by his neighbor who seriously injured him, causing lung damage and breaking six of his ribs.

This time, it was only an unhinged person losing it verbally at him, fortunately. But still a truly unhinged moment.

Sergio Gor, Paul’s aide, tweeted out, “While having lunch with @RandPaul in California, we got verbally assaulted by these aggressive libs complaining about incivility. Check out the vid! #unhinged.”

Warning for offensive language

“You just ran into two people from New York, kiddo, and we’re not putting up with your Republican bulls–t,” the crazy lady says.

Paul tweeted out the video, noting, “The left blames incivility on @realDonaldTrump. Watch this video and decide who the rude ones are… ”

What makes people think acting like this is alright? Or that it’s going to convince anyone to her way of thinking?

She certainly doesn’t do the left any favors by showcasing this kind of behavior.

But at what point are the folks in power on the left going to condemn this, rather than encourage it?

Clinton Attack On Tulsi Gabbard Will Drive People To Trump Says Congressman

Westlake Legal Group TulsiGabbardAPimage-300x153 Clinton Attack On Tulsi Gabbard Will Drive People To Trump Says Congressman Russia Michigan Justin Amash Front Page Stories Featured Story Allow Media Exception 2019

 (AP Photo/Paul Sancya)

The tangled web we weave is something to admire every once in a while.

As my colleague, Bonchie here at Red State wrote yesterday Hillary Clinton Attacks Tulsi Gabbard And Gets Absolutely Wrecked In Response it seems the lovely wife of Bill stepped in it. Badly.

Now, a fierce critic of Trump is saying that Hillary Clinton’s attack on Gabbard will help…..The Donald.

Say what?

According to the Washington Examiner

Rep. Justin Amash said that Hillary Clinton is helping President Trump’s chances at being reelected by calling 2020 Democratic presidential candidate Tulsi Gabbard a “Russian asset.”

Amash, a 39-year-old Tea Party conservative who left the Republican Party over Trump, tweeted that Clinton’s comments were going to “drive many people into the arms of Donald Trump.”

“The thing we know for sure is that Hillary Clinton is a Donald Trump asset,” the Michigan congressman said late Friday night.

“Hillary does — and did — drive many people into the arms of Donald Trump. Her attack on Tulsi does likewise,” he continued. “In my district, Trump did worse than any Republican in modern times and still beat Clinton by a fair margin. Many Ds in the Midwest rejected her. I didn’t vote for either one.

Now, I have to scratch my head on this one and really think here. Hillary Clinton is a Donald Trump asset? Is this in the bearded Spock alternative universe on Star Trek?

Hillary Clinton attacked Tulsi without naming her but we know who she was talking about. Now, Hillary and Trump are not besties last time I checked. Tulsi and The Donald are also not on the same page on about 90% of things.

One of the few things that Gabbard and Trump have in common is that they have both spoken about America’s never-ending involvement in foreign conflicts and wanting to end them. I’m pretty sure that is also a stance that Amash has.

So people that are for Trump in that regard are already for Trump.

Tulsi Gabbard has garnered a lot of attention for this attack by Clinton and her well-crafted response to Hillary. I’m sure she will gain some new supporters, however, she is not going to be the Democratic nominee for President.

So unless she is, I don’t see how this drives people to Trump. Even then I still don’t see it.

People who dislike Hillary, dislike Hillary. I have seen no data that suggests that people voted for Trump just on the basis they hate Hillary. Trump won traditionally blue-collar states like Michigan, Ohio, and Wisconsin based on his take on how manufacturing jobs were going overseas or to Mexico. People disliking Hillary might have been a factor but it was a small one. The others who are just going to vote for a Republican over a Democrat are going to do that regardless. Just like they voted for Romney and McCain etc etc….

I know that I’m not a Washington D.C. insider so I’m going to have to have this conspiracy theory explained to me Seasme Street style because it is alluding me fiercely.

This Is the Tweet That Is Going to Vault Beto to the Presidency

Westlake Legal Group BetoORourkeTheView This Is the Tweet That Is Going to Vault Beto to the Presidency periods Gender Issues Front Page Stories Front Page Featured Story Featured Post Election democrats Culture beto Allow Media Exception 2020 candidates 2020

2020 presidential candidate Beto O’Rourke (D) speaks on “The View” – 5/14/19. Screen grab via ABC.

Beto O’Rourke has been desperate to gain traction in the presidential race for the Democratic nomination.

He was supportive of abortion up to the day before birth. Shockingly, that didn’t do it for him.

He’s threatened to grab our guns. Oddly, that failed too.

But now, he may have really found the issue to raise him from that one percent plateau.

Feminine hygiene products.

He announced his support for the “Menstrual Equity Act” on “National Period Day,” saying “men need to join women in demanding real change.”

But as PJ Media observes, O’Rourke may be a little bit behind two other 2020 Democratic candidates, Julian Castro and Sen. Cory Booker (D-NJ), in his pandering on the issue.

According to GovTrack, this legislation will “increase the availability and affordability of menstrual hygiene products for individuals with limited access, and for other purposes.”

Individuals. Because men have periods too! Duh! Beto may not have gotten that memo, but Cory Booker and Julián Castro did. They also tweeted about National Period Day, but didn’t single out women as being the only sex that actually needs menstrual products:

Bad Beto.

No word yet on the other Democrats, but can they be far behind?

Trump and Campaign to Sue CNN

Westlake Legal Group Trump-Finger-Point Trump and Campaign to Sue CNN media bias Media journalism Impeachment of President Trump impeachment Front Page Stories Front Page Featured Story Featured Post donald trump CNN Allow Media Exception

Looks like President Donald Trump and his campaign have had just about enough with CNN.

After Project Veritas released several videos this week showing CNN’s focus on pushing impeachment, lawyers for the president and his campaign have announced their intent to sue.

The videos show employees saying among other things that they have been told to push Trump and impeachment over other news. Some despair that they used to cover news but now no longer do, with the sole focus being on negative news about Trump. One employee even said he didn’t think it would stop until Trump died which he hoped would happen soon.

From Washington Examiner:

In a four-page letter to CNN, Zucker, and Executive Vice President David Vigilante, Trump attorney Charles J. Harder cited years of anti-Trump bias at the network and claimed the cable giant has broken its promise of “excellence in journalism.”

Listing several examples from the just-released Project Veritas videotapes of CNN insiders describing Zucker’s demand for “impeachment above all else,” Harder wrote that they “are merely the tip of the iceberg of the evidence my clients have accumulated over recent years.”

He added, “Never in the history of this country has a President been the subject of such a sustained barrage of unfair, unfounded, unethical and unlawful attacks by so-called ‘mainstream’ news, as the current situation.”

Harder argued that while media certainly has free speech, CNN was violating the Lanham Act by making “misrepresentations to the public, to your advertisers, and to others” and not distributing “truly fair and balanced” news.

“Recently released video footage of individuals alleged to be your employees indicates that your reporting relating to President Trump is contrary to your own mission and the aforementioned Code of Ethics. Your own employees appear to state that CNN is focused on trying to ‘take down President Trump,’ driven by a ‘personal vendetta’ that Mr. Zucker purportedly has against him, rather than reporting the news in an objective manner,” wrote Harder.

Harder then gave notice of their intent to sue saying they would be seeking “compensatory damages, treble damages, punitive damages, injunctive relief, reimbursement of legal costs” along with anything else they could get.

A CNN spokesperson called the threatened suit a publicity stunt.

CNN has a long history of biased and bad reporting when it comes to Trump. We should all be supportive of free speech. But we should also be supportive of good and objective journalism. From the President of CNN Jeff Zucker to White House reporter Jim Acosta, they’ve repeatedly demonstrated that they are not “reliable sources,” destroying a network that used to be a journalistic model. It’s long past time that they return to actual objective reporting.

Man Sues Universal Theme Park Over its ‘Deceptive’ Unlimited Drink Deal – We Want Justice, and We Want it Now!

Westlake Legal Group air-force-academy-100379_1280-620x412 Man Sues Universal Theme Park Over its ‘Deceptive’ Unlimited Drink Deal – We Want Justice, and We Want it Now! Uncategorized Front Page Stories

 

 

Sometimes ya just gotta file a lawsuit.

Especially if you’ve been thirsting for one.

Such, apparently, is the case for Luis Arnaud. The Bronx resident’s begun a class action lawsuit against NBCUniversal over a lack of received blessings while he visited the company’s Universal Orlando theme park — essentially, his cup didn’t runneth over.

Luis took the park up on its offer of unlimited soda refills from Coca-Cola Freestyle machines, but he discovered there was a waiting period: He could only load his beverage bucket with enough sugar to kill a horse every 10 minutes.

Yes — it was that bad.

The cups cost $16.99 and are microchipped to be good for a whole day, so Luis snagged one during a visit to Volcano Bay and Islands of Adventure in July. He also re-upped the following day for $8.99.

But at some point during that diabetic 48-hour free-for-all, after “quenching his thirst,” he was denied a second refill.

The machine laid out the punishing truth:

“Hi. You are not quite ready to fill up.”

Luis took a photo, which is now part of the legal revolt he initiated Thursday.

In the complaint, he insists he was never informed he couldn’t pour copious amounts of Coke down his gullet like Mean Joe Greene and then immediately do it all again.



Luis thinks “deceptive” NBCU is a Mean Joe, and now — presumably — he wants some green.

The lawsuit doesn’t specify a damage amount, but a jury trial has been “demanded.”

Let’s all hope the falcon of justice really does a number on the pigeon of high fructose corn syrup constraint with this one.

Those Screaming the Loudest About Syria Hold Zero Moral High Ground, They Should Stop Pretending They Do

The situation in Syria has drawn a hot divide on the right between those who want us to rush in prevent Turkey from their incursion into Northern Syria and those who see the situation as much more complicated and volatile. Regardless of Erdogan’s thuggery, the fact remains that Turkey is a NATO ally and the PKK, along with their YPG sub-sect, are a terrorist group. That’s left the United States trying to juggle a decision between possibly sparking a war with Turkey or expending U.S. blood to protect a group that has carried out suicide bombings. President Trump decided it was best to not make a decision at all on that front.

As someone who’s been oppositional to our policy in Syria for a very long time, including our prolonging of a deadly civil war in a vain attempt at regime change, I tend to side with idea that it’s best we get out. There is no national interest in stranding troops in Northern Syria any longer and we have no solution to the decades long battling between Turkey and the PKK/YPG.

With that said, I have no issue with those who hold a different position. If one feels we should commit troops and confront Turkey, make that case. What I have zero respect are rantings like this.

This is contemptible on so many levels.

Why do I say that? Because people like S.E. Cupp were the ones cheer-leading our original policy in Syria of arming terrorist groups to try to remove Assad. That policy led to a civil war being far worse and longer than it might otherwise have been and well over 500,000 people dead. Does S.E. Cupp hold no moral responsibility for being so wrong about that? The shamelessness with which she and others like her carry themselves is just mind-blowing.

Right now, right-wing Twitter is full of people screaming about genocide (Turkey’s actions aren’t good, but there’s no genocide happening), yet almost all of those people were fully supportive of stoking a war that killed over 50,000 children that did not need to die. Assad being a dictator was not an excuse to propagate a ridiculously stupid foreign policy that cost an enormous amount of innocent lives. That stuff matters and these people don’t get to just pretend that didn’t happen while they scream shame, shame at Donald Trump. They hold absolutely no moral high ground on this issue.

Further, they do nothing to answer any of the tough questions facing us in Northern Syria. How long should we commit to protect a group designated a terrorist group? What happens if we are forced to engage Turkish forces? How many troops should we send? By what authority will the be sent, as they obviously don’t fall under the AUMF of fighting terrorism? There’s plenty of virtue signaling but very little answers being given.

The way you know these people, including Senators like Mitt Romney, aren’t serious people is because no one of them are demanding Congress declare war and pass a new AUMF to even make military action legal. Screaming from the sidelines is easy. Actually going on record is much tougher.

In the meantime, the rantings of people like Cupp not only don’t add up, they are morally reprehensible on their face. They don’t get to hand wave away their foreign policy blunders that have cost hundreds of thousands of lives while chastising those that disagree with them now as morally deficient.

Even then, I’m not suggesting in a vacuum that those blunders make these people evil or possessing the “blood thirst of the neocons,” as Rand Paul hilariously quipped last week. What am I suggesting is that they garner some semblance of self-awareness before they go accusing others of lacking morality in foreign policy over what’s currently happening Syria.

The state of California continues its steep decline into anarchy as one if its main power companies, PG&E recently instituted blackouts affecting millions of residents. The company had been found libel for the destructive Paradise fires after an investigation concluded the fires had been caused by sparks from their above ground wires as they were battered around by severe wind events.

The lines should have long ago been put underground, but that wasn’t the extent of PG&E’s malfeasance. It has since come to light that executives have been kicking the maintenance can down the road for decades. There have been few upgrades and few routine maintenance checks for nearly 60 years while the company’s executives pocket huge pay-raises and profits. PG&E filed for bankruptcy in January after incurring $30 billion in libel costs. Over 100 people died in the 2017 and 2018 fires caused by their power lines.

Even after the blackouts incensed millions of Californians and became ridiculed in memes from across the country, the power behemoth is defending their move and now The Wall Street Journal reports that PG&E executives believe the “safety” blackouts could continue for much longer than expected.

PG&E Corp. PCG -0.89% ’s chief executive said Friday that it could take as long as 10 years for the company to improve its electric system enough to significantly diminish the need to pull the plug on customers to reduce the risk of sparking fires.

Bill Johnson, who joined the company in May, made the disclosure at a California Public Utilities Commission hearing where the panel’s president, Marybel Batjer, sharply criticized the company’s “inadequate execution” of a shut-off in which it turned off power to large portions of Northern California for more than two days last week.

The commission convened an emergency meeting to examine PG&E’s handling of the massive blackout, which left roughly two million people in the dark and created widespread havoc from the Bay Area to the northern reaches of the state. Several of the company’s top executives were summoned to detail the problems and take questions from regulators.

While Johnson reiterated that PG&E made the right decision regarding safety, he admitted that making the decision was not the same as executing that decision well. PG&E has to be better prepared than it was this time.”

Despite Governor Newsom calling for immediate accountability and residents all over the state outraged about being forced to unnecessarily go for days on end with no power, PG&E says they plan to move forward with future shutoff as they proceed to upgrade their power grid and clear fire-prone old growth from their 70,000 square mile service radius.

Worse yet, the company’s new CEO says the blackouts will undoubtedly continue for at least another decade.

Mr. Johnson said the utility is working to limit the scope of future shut-offs by trimming more trees and installing technology to enable the shutdown of smaller, more targeted portions of the grid. But he estimated it will take as long as a decade before its shut-offs will have “ratcheted down significantly.”

“I think they’ll decrease in size and scope every year,” he said. “But at the same time we’re doing this the risk is not static, it’s dynamic and it goes up every year.”

Already, PG&E is behind on several of its most important safety efforts, records show, including this year’s tree-trimming campaign, which is less than 50% complete. It also trails its peers in technology to track winds and isolate the areas where equipment is at highest risk of sparking fires.

Though the company warned of continued shut-offs, it is working to limit their duration.

Michael Lewis, PG&E’s senior vice president of electric operations, said the company, which previously advised customers to prepare for shut-offs lasting as long as five days, will work to restore power within 48 hours after initiating a shut-off.

“We now recognize that five days as a benchmark is unacceptable,” he said.

Unacceptable seems like an understatement. Can millions of Californians accept third world power grid conditions for the next decade? Due to their own corruption and laziness, PG&E obviously has their work cut out for them to get up to speed. Perhaps there’s nothing to be done about who has to fix it. But the Hoover Dam was built in five years. In the digital age, electricity is the most valuable currency. Taking a decade to bury power lines and clear out brush is pathetic and totally avoidable in the nation that sent men to the moon in that same length of time.
