California Utility Company Cuts Electricity to 800,000 People to ‘Prevent Wildfires’ (Details)

They’re probably not too happy about that…

In a move that may come as a shock to some people who don’t follow politics, California is doing some funky stuff that is greatly impacting residents. Funky stuff like turning off electricity.

If that seems a little odd to you, it’s because the move is reportedly “unprecedented.” So, there’s that.

Nearly one million Californians will be affected by this move as the Golden State says it’s attempting to prevent “wildfires.” Here are the details…

In an unprecedented move, Pacific Gas & Electric early Wednesday began shutting off power to about 800,000 customers across Northern California in an attempt to avoid wildfires caused by winds damaging power equipment.

The first power cutoffs, expected to affect 513,000 customers, began shortly after midnight in several counties around Sacramento, including Placer and Yuba, amid strengthening winds and continued to roll out into the early morning hours.

The blackouts will impact 34 counties in Central and Northern California. It would be the biggest power shutdown so far as utilities across the state attempt to reduce wildfire risk due to heavy wind. Utilities malfunctions have been tied to some of the state’s most destructive fires, including last year’s Camp fire, which devastated Paradise, Calif., and the 2017 wine country blazes.

WATCH:

President Trump is raking in more cash in the Golden State than all but two 2020 Dems.

Go figure, huh?

LOOK:

What is “ballot harvesting?”

There’s a reason it’s illegal in 49 of 50 states, California being the lone exception.

In a nutshell, “harvesting” is easily rife with fraud.

Dems can walk in with “harvested” ballots up to a few days after the election, knowing how many votes they need to steal the election.

It’s a big problem.

Seven Republican seats in the Golden State flipped to Dems weeks after the election.

Seven.

One of those seats was “won” on election day by the first Korean-American elected to Congress.

Save conservative media!

VIDEO: Conservatives Form Their Own ‘Squad’ To Do Battle Against Socialism; ‘This Is Not Your Grandfather’s GOP Anymore’

Published

Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you’ve probably heard all about a group of four freshmen Democratic Party women who have banded together in Congress to fight for socialistic policies. This group of individuals has been labeled the “Squad” and features Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Ilhan Omar, and Rashida Tlaib. Well, four female conservative congressional candidates are forming their own version of the “Squad” to help fight against the socialism these other ladies are doing their best to push on the American people. Here’s more on this from Fox News: In a previous interview on “Fox & Friends,” Alabama congressional candidate Jessica Taylor called for a new generation of conservatives to counteract the ideology of Democratic socialists like Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Ilhan Omar. Then, in a campaign video for her candidacy, Taylor said that she was “sick of arrogant socialists like AOC (Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez), who’ve never even run a lemonade stand, trying to tell us how to live in Alabama and that more government is the answer.” On Thursday, Taylor joined “Fox & Friends” once again with a newly formed “conservative squad,” made up of Minnesota congressional candidate Michelle Fischbach, South Carolina congressional candidate Nancy Mace, and Texas congressional candidate Beth Van Duyne. “This is about bringing the conservative message to the people of the United States,” said Fischbach. “So that people understand that we’re looking at do-nothing Democrats. They are obsessing about impeachment and not really doing anything for the people of the United States anymore.” Mace went on to say that their initiative is all about the American dream. “The Democrats, they have taken a sharp left turn under the influence of the socialist squad. And, you look at us and this is socialism versus the American values of freedom and job creation. And, we all understand…

Nonpartisan Analysis Weighs In On Elizabeth Warren’s Wealth Tax Math, Says It Doesn’t Add Up

Published

on

An academic, nonpartisan study has concluded that the math behind Democratic presidential candidate Sen. Elizabeth Warren’s wealth tax and found that something’s a bit off about the numbers. According to the new findings, the “wealth tax” on America’s wealthiest folks will actually bring in $1 trillion less than what Warren estimates. Warren says the wealth tax would be a big help in funding her massive progressive policies such as the universal child care, free tuition at public universities, and the big one, “Medicare-for-all” and other programs. The plan would put a two percent tax on individuals worth $50 million or more and a six percent tax on those worth more than $1 billion. Here’s more from Fox News: A University of Pennsylvania Penn Wharton Budget Model – which offers nonpartisan analysis of public policy proposals – estimates, though, that Warren’s tax would raise between $2.3 trillion to $2.7 trillion over a decade. That’s as much as $1.4 trillion less than the Warren campaign’s estimates. The analysis was released on Thursday. It also concludes that the new taxes would cause the economy to contract between 0.9 percent and 2.1 percent by 2050 — depending on how the new revenue is spent. The model says the new tax would reduce “private capital formation” enough to drive the U.S. economy’s average wage down between 0.9 percent and 2.3 percent, even affecting households not rich enough to qualify for the tax. Warren’s campaign disputed the findings. “This analysis does not study Elizabeth’s actual plans — it does not account for the strong anti-evasion measures in her wealth tax and does not even attempt to analyze the specific investments Elizabeth is committed to making with the wealth tax revenue,” Warren campaign spokesperson Saloni Sharma said in a statement to Fox News. “This is an analysis…
