Thursday Open Thread – California Blackout Edition

Hope myiq and Dweet are faring well and avoiding the inconveniences. Of course, here on the East Coast, fake media is letting us know every one is doomed on the Left Coast. Poor Gavin Newsom, worried about his winery, let us pray…. 😛

    Last night a Facebook friend was getting ready for the blackout, but then he posted that the power was still on.

    • DeniseVB says:

      Here in Virginny, when a planned blackout is planned, like maintenance on a grid or something, we get *notices* so we can plan ahead. Of course, when death storms are headed our way, we’re on our own, but we have advance notices for those too 😉

    On the political survey Tuesday, the only Democrats I had to rank as favorable or unfavorable and strongly or somewhat were Biden, Sanders, Harris, Castro, Warren and Buttgiggles. Those must be the top totalitarian Dem picks.

  3. DeniseVB says:

    To be fair to Cali, we recently had rolling blackouts while Dominion Energy repaired overhead lines that were catching fire due to a recent dry spell. Salt build up made the lines overheat or something. We weren’t affected because our (newer section since the 80’s) has all underground utilities. Usually we only lose power during major storms or when a drunk driver crashes into a power grid thingy.

    I’m so glad mr.miranda’s job in San Jose fell through 20-some years ago. We dodged an entire ‘assault-style rifle’s’ worth of bullets.

    FBers, if you want to weigh in on SGP……..

    The Turks beseeched the Obama administration not to align with their sworn enemy, but the Obamaians told them, in effect, to sit down and shut up. Why? The American relationship with the YPG was a direct outgrowth of the greatest blunder of the Obama administration: the effort to reach a strategic accommodation with Iran.

  9. 49erDweet says:

    Mr/Mrs 49er are doing fine, thank y’all very much. First night back after a week of hoteling it bc we are majorly remodeling our home. Slept much, much better.
    My part of CA isn’t involved in the blackouts. (Neither is Myiq’s, but he’s close to a couple). If the seagulls ever revolt, though, we might be in trouble.

    Tulsi issues a warning and threatens a boycott, but she only told half the story. I corrected her.

    I have electricity again for a little while. It’s been horrible. Sitting in the dark without any wifi. The smell of the dead bodies piled in the streets. And, of course, the zombies.

  13. Mothy67 says:

    The CA blackout stuff has to wake up at least a few voters. Are schools canceled? Just insane that such a wealthy state must endure this. Normies have to be growing weary of the leftist crackpots. My tin foil hat wants to know how they plan to use this to hurt Trump. If a couple of lives are lost so be it as long as orange man bad is the outcome. I can imagine so many tragic stories stemming from 800,000 people without power. I can see The Purge type things happening.

    My random pondering of the day. Do any of you ever wonder how it is Google comes up with ads to push your way? I don’t very often, well except when I was getting ads for divorce attorneys in NJ, BIG fight, HUGE…..thanks Google🙄 (Apparently dah Google thought we were separated when hubby signed lease in NJ……again thanks Google🙄) BTW hubby was getting the ads too, thanks Google 🙄Talk about priming us both for a fight 🙄 thankfully it was short lived.

    Anyway I know it’s supposed to be all metadata driven. So why is it all day today the same ad keeps showing up on my phone for a two person mobility scooter? Not even a snazzy one, an ugly one with a big Wizard of Oz basket on the front (OK, I am known as the bitch of the street so there’s the whole wicked witch angle) 😜

    Seriously nobody in the house has been shopping for or even admiring scooters, we don’t need one yet thankfully. If in fact I did, why does Google think we need a dual one? Why can’t we each have our own. I love my husband but I don’t want to be tied to him 24/7…….come on honey, I need to go to the bathroom…..slow down you’re taking the turn too fast. Who even wants a dual scooter?

    I finally looked at dual scooters after ads all day and I’m offended that Google didn’t think we’d like the one that looks like a motorcycle. The seats are side by side, but the front looks like a motorcycle and it has handlebars like a motorcycle. I may bookmark it, so if the time comes that I need a scooter I can get one that looks like a motorcycle……and I’ll add speakers and blare Steppenwolf “Born to be Wild” 🤣🤣 I’ll be the hit of the nursing home 😜

    • Mothy67 says:

      My favorite thing about the ads is that if you look up something you get ads for weeks about the item. What a waste as I usually make the purchase when I search. I got a new 50″ roku TV for 178 on September 1st. (Thank you paypal – 6 months same as cash) and I am still be bombarded with tv ads.

    OMG I hope now NY dem to step down so chelsa can run for congress

    • DeniseVB says:

      Typical Chelsea, “ok, I’ll run, but I don’t want to work for it”. This whole book tour thing with her mom has been creepy. Chels has been so out of character bashing America (I don’t want to raise my children here, blah, blah)

      • Somebody says:

        See that really bothers me. Why would anyone vote for someone that espouses such views? I would never vote for someone that doesn’t want to live here or hates the country. If you feel that way, leave, GTFO.

        You can disagree with policies or the direction the country is headed without bashing the USA. That used to be the norm, but then again a lot of things used to be the norm.

        The most shocking part is that about half the electorate are brain dead drones that cheer hatred toward the USA. That’s truly frightening.

      • lateblum says:

        Well, she can’t say “for the first time I’m proud of my country.” That’s already taken.

      • 49erDweet says:

        She’s turned out to be the daughter none of us wanted.

      • Mt.Laurel says:

        Is it really out of character? Perhaps this is just the real Chelsea. Mini me Hillary. Now secure enough to say what she has always believed,

        The other, somewhat kinder option, is that this is who Chelsea has become to get her mothers attention since most of her life Huma and others have out maneuvered her for a top spot in Hillary’s worshipers. I hesitate to say affection because I do not think Hillary is capable of such. Any actual love Chelsea got was from Bill. And socks.

      That is an AWESOME ad, but you have to stay with it to the end 😂 I saw that this morning and LMAO

  20. DeniseVB says:

    #TrumpMinneapolis is already top trending on Twitter 😀 It’s like the dickhead mayor’s challenge was accepted or something 😛

  21. lateblum says:

    As seen on Twitter…

  22. Dora says:

    This is ridiculous! What’s wrong with this man? Ohm that’s right – he’s a democrat.

    • DandyTIger says:

      Expect this to be just the beginning. Every dirty trick you can think of will be coming.

    • Jentx says:

      Well we could do what the Dems are letting people do in places like San Francisco which is just drop Squat and pop Hooper P whatever you want. I would do it at the city hall and at the mayor’s home and at his Children’s Home and then let’s make it personal guys this is freaking ridiculous at all so if I would Trump look at every single way to cut every penny out of the federal budget that goes to this state this city it’s time to stand up people and take our country back

      • Jentx says:

        Sorry guys my auto-correct poop or pee is what I said they should poop and or pee and just say they thought it was like every other Democrat State you can do it wherever you want their freedom and I’m specifically do it where the mayor lives

  23. helenk3 says:

    The other day I posted a comment about the FEC chairman trying to change the election law to include information as a thing of value and using the Trump call to the Ukraine against him. It must be the new dem narrative as Judge Neopolito just used it on the tv.
    The dem creeps are like Lombard St in SF the crooked street in the world

    we better do some changing in the law courts of this country fast. No one judge should have this much power

      did you see the video of the guy from Syria that want all foreign countries out of Syria. I posted it downstairs. We may not like what he said or the way he said it , but he makes a point

  27. DeniseVB says:

    Ok, one more time…..Target Center ? 😛

    I hear the recall is going swell 😉

  31. Angie says:

    I had an “aha” after the NBA/Hong Kong story & news yesterday that China was leaving trade talks early because they see Trump as “weakened” by the impeachment farce.

    I finally understand the unhinged hysteria about Trump. Yes, they were all pissed he embarrassed them by winning the election. But the sustained hatred and attacks have been relentless. They knowingly pushed the Russia collusion hoax and now they are pretending the star chamber (secret witnesses, hidden evidence, no due process) farce to impeach the duly elected President of the United States of America is “normal.” And they are pretending that Trump hasn’t taken the unprecedented step of RELEASING THE TRANSCRIPT that proves the hearsay complaint is garbage.

    It is because of China. Trump actually meant what he said that he would stop the unfair trade arrangement the corrupt politicians have allowed to go on for decades. China wants Trump out so they can go back to ripping us off. And the Dems, the GOPe, the NeverTrumps, turn coat rats like Anthony Scaramucci& the corporate media are all bowing to China.

    They love those Chinese markets more than they love this country. And they are 100% fine with working/middle class Americans becoming destitute as long as money flows into their pockets.

    • lyn says:

      Great analysis.

    • DeniseVB says:

      Ayup, sounds right to me. We voted for Trump to burn it down, I think these people understand that too (sound on !)

    • Mt.Laurel says:

      Nice summation.

      The globalists shills have grown fat off layers and layers of corruption both home and abroad. and they do not wish to give up their perceived elite status. Not to mention they know what they have done is wrong —– and they do not care. They have not just hurt us, they have hurt the deplorables worldwide because it is going on across the globe. Instead of teaching those “backward” societies about freedom and liberty — they have embraced the dictator/banana republic/totalitarian state mores to the max.

    • John Denney says:

      As Sundance says, there are literally trillions of dollars at stake, and the unAmericans will not give it up without a nasty fight.

      Well, that’s irony for you. I can dox you – a Twitter user – but you can’t know who the whistle blower is! They just make up the rules as they go along. Bastages!

  33. lyn says:

    Fuck that, Dem Star Chamber.

    • Somebody says:

      Surely there are enough level heads to prevail. Please tell me we have enough sane people in this country to reject this. Impeach a President based on a fucking letter, which is nothing more than some sour grape leftist’s opinion, give me a break. That is beyond banana republic. Oh and btw, rumor has it the candidate he has ties to is Biden, hence why he wants to testify by letter. What a farce.

    Ho Lee Phuc!

    Trump is on 🔥

    He is taking a blow torch to the Dems tonight

    • lateblum says:

      Awesome. Of course all those obamaphiles will rush to canonize all three… bronco, joe, and Hunter. But as long as we’re driving the bus, obama will remain under it.

    FoxNews is showing thugs outside the Target Center fighting police and burning MAGA hats.
    When the central empties the potential for violence is high, imo

  48. Mt.Laurel says:

    Good Grief!

    Now the idiot Jane Fonda is coming to DC to get arrested for her birthday. The push notice quotes the harpy as saying “we are running out of time”. No Jane – your 15 minutes of fame and 5 ounces of talent ran out over 60 years ago. You just keep stealing others peoples time. Please just go away.

  49. Angie says:

    I’m glad I watched the Trump rally but it looks like the CNN townhall was lit.

    Those Mn cops were great tonight. They have a lot more patience than I do . They deserve a great big thanks for keeping things from really exploding

  51. Angie says:

  52. helenk3 says:

    I had to laugh at one of the protesters. He was standing there and then realised his face was on tv and put a handkerchief up to cover it . All I could think of was he thinking OMG if my mommy see me here she may make move out of my free room in the basement . Then what will I do

    So for weeks the msm was obsessed with The Joker causing a person to act out, but they don’t say squat about the antics of antifa. One day one of the faithful is going to go too far. The vile cretins are like soos’ own Manson Family. He wanted to start a race war as well.

    Romanian Opposition Topples Govt in No-Confidence Vote

    Viorica Dancila’s government was ousted on Thursday after losing a no-confidence motion tabled by the opposition – which they said was timely and necessary but which the ousted PM called ‘irresponsible’.
