The cali dems energy policy has made us a 3rd world shithole that can not keep the lights on but now people are up in arms they cant run the ac or charge their subsidized teslas. Bet they wished they still had some excess generating ability in cali. Does solar work in smoke? -

(Bloomberg) -- California, a state that has been aggressively weaning its power grid off of fossil fuels, is now working on adding several natural gas-fired plants in an effort to keep the lights on this summer.

The California Department of Water Resources is in the process of procuring five temporary gas-fueled generators that have individual capacities of 30 megawatts, said spokesman Ryan Endean. The units will be installed at existing power plants and are expected to be operating by the middle of September.

The move comes after California Governor Gavin Newsom declared a state of emergency for the power grid on concern about supply shortages during hot summer evenings when solar production wanes. The order, issued last month, aimed to free up energy supplies and speed up power plant development to help avert blackouts. It also temporarily lifted air-quality rules.

Earlier this year, California regulators balked at ordering utilities to add new gas-fired generation after environmental groups said it would run counter to the state’s decarbonization goals. Officials have been scrambling to shore up power resources ever since brief blackouts hit in August 2020 during an extreme heat wave.

The situation has become more dire this summer as a historic drought has reduced California’s hydroelectric supplies. The state has been retiring gas plants under a goal to have its grid carbon-neutral by 2045.

The California Energy Commission approved on Tuesday licenses for the emergency gas generators for up to five years.

“Governor Newsom’s emergency proclamation makes it very clear that all of our energy agencies have to act immediately to achieve energy stability during this emergency as well as accelerating plans for construction, procurement and rapid deployment of new clean-energy and storage projects,” Commissioner Karen Douglas said at the meeting.

Just a day or so after Newsome's emergency declaration, the state asked electric car owners to forego charging their cars to save power. It's no wonder this guy has to go.

Another body blow to creepy grampa joe -

A federal appeals court on Thursday ruled against the Biden administration’s efforts to delay implementation of an order that requires it to reinstate the Trump-era Migrant Protection Protocols (MPP) — yet another legal defeat for the Biden administration on immigration.

The panel of the 5th Circuit Appeals Court declined to stay a ruling by Judge Matthew Kacsmaryk issued last week that orders the Biden administration "to enforce and implement MPP in good faith" until it has been "lawfully rescinded" in compliance with the Administrative Procedure Act, and until the federal government has enough detention capacity to detail all migrants subject to mandatory detention.




Regarding the suppression of ivermectin news and treatment: having researched treatments since about June of 2020, I decided first to 'wait and see' on the 'jab', and later to avoid it at all costs. So I found a source of the Indian treatment (ivermectin, doxycycline and zinc) in a blister pack, and ordered several packs in February 2021; I also now have HCQ. Asked my doctor if she would administer/oversee my treatment should I become infected with covid. Absolutely refused. I gathered and printed studies about treatment protocols that included NAC, Vit.D, quercetin, and a list of doctors in several states who do prescribe ivermectin, hydroxychloroquine, and other alternatives. There are over 60 studies done worldwide, with rigorous standards, that demonstrate the efficacy and safety of ivermectin. She never looked at it, but says that if you get sick enough, the hospital (SNMH) can treat you with monoclonal antibodies. Is there a physician in Nevada County who's willing to use or even research these very effective treatments? Currently, the closest doctor I've found is in Redding. I am 72, reasonably healthy, and will not take the 'jab', and am so appalled by mandatory vaccine orders, and coercion even if a citizen has already had covid and has excellent immunity. On Armstrong Economics recently, Marty said he hoped there would be a brave lawyer who would take up the fight against mandatory vaccinations, and there is legal precedent there for using. I am so frustrated! Larry Elder may be our answer to the recall (he says he'll end mandatory masks and vaccines).

Good news!! I've got the location of the gentleman who received his 6th dose of the Wuhan virus vaccine.

Our vaccinatee was only interested in 2 of the 9 head with the Low Dressing. Congratulations to the Bluegrass state for being at the forefront of vax therapy.


The W.H. tries to bullshit their version of diplomacy.
Then the French tell their side. I think I will believe the French before Biden and cronies.


Here LIBS,, this is YOUR administration's dirty work.
"The Defense Contract Management Agency (DCMA) is telling personnel not to personally assist “friends and former colleagues” stuck in Afghanistan, according to an internal email obtained by the Daily Caller.

“If any Afghanistan national contacts a DCMA employee for assistance with asylum, the employee should in no way suggest or represent that the individual or DCMA is in a position to help,” the email read. “The employee should only inform the Afghanistan national that the State Department is the appropriate organization to contact.”"

Yup,, Biden's State DEPT.. Still full of the vermin Hillary had.

This just ain't the usual Proggy dumpster fire.. You have a Deep Water Horizon incident on your hands.


Dr. Rebane, not sure if it was the intent but the picture posted would likely motivate me to get multiple boosters simply for a look at the scenery...just saying ;-)

Randy 117pm - Yes, vaccinate early and often. Good to see that nothing still gets by you ;-)

Show-Me Kid

Damn, the lines to get vaccinated were sooooooooo long...

George Boardman

Go ahead, knock yourself out.

GeorgeB 206pm - Horse doses of Ivermectin are readily available. If people take that much, bad stuff will result. (Try taking a 'horse dose' of aspirin or any other drug common to humans.) Taking the Ivermectin course for humans causes no such problems. But for reasons made clear here and elsewhere, getting human prescriptions has been politicized and made difficult to get. It is clear that you are among those who oppose what has demonstrably been shown to be an aggregate life-saver for Covid - big pharma thanks you.
