  1. The mad Dr Ashley Bloomfield has been busted.

    Promoting Labour in a political advertisement demonstrates that the Director General of Health Dr Ashley Bloomfield is a shill for Labour and his medical advice dismissed as mere politicking.

    He’s talking through a hole in his stethoscope, the arrogant asshole. As a doctor I bet he knows all about those lol.

    Time for a private prosecution against Bloomfield for fraud!

    • What a surprise. From an ex-WHO official. Won’t be long before he’s criticising Trump’s attitude to the people all the pandmic-alarmists really answer to.

      I think a Royal Commission is needed more for this than any other issue in New Zealand’s history.

      I’m appalled that ONCE AGAIN, we are fobbed off with the lie that party faithful and a Wellington stooge is going to give us any clarity on the extent of the fuck-ups with Covid. Roche already told us what they’re going to find out and that is “We’re all very bad people for questioning the narrative”. After his first interview with Hoskings Roche should be kicked out, you can’t fix a problem if you don’t acknowledge there is a problem – he certainly didn’t sound like someone who thought anyone but the sheeple were in the wrong.

        • Actually, I don’t trust or believe anything from these liars. That RC is going to have to be done all over again – every aspect of it has been a fucking omnishambles.

          We need to know what happened there – and not after it has been laundered by the PARTY

    • Who was busted tho? I think it was Cindy for using public sector for campaigning. Anyway, good on Seymour for calling it out. Good result, and a tacit admission from the arseholes that they were cheating.

  2. I think Jacinda is losing her mind

    I’m not sure any reasonably sane adult would talk like this. I think the pressure of keeping all of the lies straight in her bony skull is beginning to scramble her brains.

    “Stay the course
    Short and sharp
    Hard and early
    We’ve done it before, and we can do it again”
    …. And then the SLG ends with an inane grin as if she’s just completed the Gettysburg address rather than something more akin to a nursery rhyme.

    It’s beginning to get embarrassing listening to her – it’s as if she’s doing her own version of Biden’s mindless rambling.

  3. A police recruit was fired, days before graduation, after she was found to be living with a member of the Mongrel Mob.

    The relationship was not picked up by police vetting procedures and only discovered days before the woman was due to graduate from the Royal New Zealand Police College, earlier this year.

    It’s understood the pair were living together in the upper North Island.

    https://www.stuff.co.nz/national/crime/122517687/investigation-after-police-recruit-was-found-to-be-living-with-mongrel-mob-gangster

    What can you say?

    Police don’t know their gangsters perhaps.

    • Surely the police counter-intelligence unit would have systems in place to cope with this old trick. On the other hand, she could be used to feed false information to the gang.

      • Viking ,lets not forget the plod gave two ticks to the Mosque mass killer by not vetting him at all,they were told by members of his own gun club that he was unstable and shouldn’t get a license,and he was able to buy illegal 30 round magazines to help with his crime.
        Has anybody been charged with anything?NO.
        And the Ardern appointed top cop has held off the release of the enquiry untill after the election and from our media about this ,,,,crickets.

      • I doubt that intelligence, counter or otherwise, is the driver behind police actions nowadays.

        Slavish devotion to the diktats of Dear Leader seems to be the way they’re heading.

    • In the meantime the article points out,
      the volume of new recruits meant that vetting through face-to-face interviews with referees didn’t happen as frequently. the progressive inclusive way.

      But 10% caught, seems to be an incidental number, when not really vetting, like fire arm licencing Brenton Tarrrant, and how many gang members & associates.
      at least 10 of 100 police recruits who trained at the college from June to September 2018 were investigated either criminally or under the code of conduct.

      One of the “10%” or how much more, caught.
      November, Vili Mahe Taukolo was jailed for two years and two months for accessing the police’s National Intelligence Application and then leaking the information to gangs.

  5. What is not shown in the news. 🙂

    “New Zealand – Jacinda’s police at it again”
    https://youtu.be/FK1w1_slghc
    10 minutes 47 secs.

    Auckland protest of lockdown, starts at the 50 secs., and goes almost to the end.
    Interesting to see the build up of numbers from 7 minutes 46 secs. and even a bit later, more came in support..

    I wonder if one follows the Hone Harawira system, as he talks of doing “mobile patrols”.
    I think he is doing this to duck & dive from the police.

    A pop up protest, an interesting yarn with the local bobbie, then estimate a time factor of reinforcements, then dissipate, and then reappear at another place. 🙂

    Thanks also to the roving report of the AKL protest from Te Rauparaha yesterday.

    • Police hounding those Protesters is disgraceful.
      They can’t argue ‘Public Safety’- They chose to completely ignore the thousands of ‘BLM’ Activists a few weeks ago so they can’t play that card can they?

    • This is fascism

      So let me get this right – in the middle of Level 4 – BLM OK no police.

      25 people expressing their right to protest about the obvious abuse of lockdowns – all seemingly observing social distance – 20 cops appear.

      This definitely looks to be about the politics and not public health.

      I particularly liked this moment – when the Stasi lined up like the Village People.

      • Did you hear the large cop say to the man standing quietly with his protest sign “It didn’t work at Nuremberg and it doesn’t work here”. Basically he called the protester a Na’zi.
        The Nuremberg trials didn’t allow “taking orders” as a defense.

        Fascist cop! I used to have total respect for NZ police but the recent display of them doing the politicians bidding is despicable.

        The Nuremberg trials were a series of military tribunals held after World War II by the Allied forces under international law and the laws of war. The trials were most notable for the prosecution of prominent members of the political, military, judicial, and economic leadership of Nazi Germany, who planned, carried out, or otherwise participated in the Holocaust and other war crimes.

        • “investigation of burglaries”

          When did that last happen?
          1988
          For those that have been doing a Rip Van Winkle the cops in NZ have been political since the 1990s.

          This is deployment of a political operative force not a law and order issue.

          The whole of Covid is political and not about medicine.
          Ashen Bloomfailed is a distraction. A glove puppet- that lies all the time per the puppet master.

          Where the hell is Notional damning this?
          Notional should be issuing press releases four times a day re the appalling disorganization at the Auckland borders.
          Seymour remains Leader of the Opposition.

          Remember the cops only do a matter of weeks in training.
          They have less training than a nail technician.

    • Sorry DP, not level 4, and to clarify for C1, it was level 2, but the law should still be equally applied, if it is the law.
      DP that line up is very amusing, 🙂 the vechicles, the man-power/ hours of cost, and no investigation of burglaries, assaults, etc..
      “One law 4 all”

      The march on June 1st clearly in breach!, as NZ was in level 2!

      The 2nd march on June 14th was ok as NZ had moved to level 1 on 8th June.

      Auckland is in level 3 now.

      June 1st
      Aotea Square was filled to the brim, with estimates putting the crowd anywhere between 2,000 and 4,000 people.
      Alert level two rules around the size of gathering and physical distancing were clearly breached.
      While many wore masks, the majority didn’t.
      The march, however, was allowed to go ahead and police stayed back, opting for a tolerant approach.

      https://thespinoff.co.nz/society/02-06-2020/in-pictures-the-black-lives-matter-solidarity-march-auckland/

      The police are only enforcing the law, by political expediency.
      Just another form of control & power.

      • Well said Simpleton1. Thanks. My apologies I was wrong about the status. I think it changes my view a little bit. I don’t think the way the cops behaved was OK or proportionate.

        When they start putting that much effort into actual crime prevention I’ll be more open to give them the benefit of the doubt.

          The point is still there how they police politically run things in many spheres, taking as their template from Ardern. 🙁

    • This is incredibly frightening considering the number of people protesting very quietly about our civil rights when the BLM protests were Fucking huge and not a single cop was about to do anything about it. What a communistic country we are living in now. I hate this col, its incredible how they are using the cops to do their dirty work and take our liberties away.

  6. Texas Medical Board advisory saying HCQ is not banned for treating Covid

    This is where we need a Royal Commission – when it becomes clear in the future that HCQ is an effective treatment for Covid – and that a lockdown was NEVER needed as there was a cheap, effective cure and NO ONE needed to die – then we’re going to need some prosecutions and some long jail terms.

    • DP. I posted the Ugandan Worldometer Covid cases before, and I’ll do it again.
      https://www.worldometers.info/coronavirus/country/uganda/

      They’ve had 5 more deaths since I last posted. Still less deaths than NZ with a population almost 10 times the size.
      Why is their death rate and active case number so low?
      Easy answer, when you realise 3rd world countries are highly susceptible to Malaria and what they take to combat the disease.
      I see a massive fail by the WHO to dupe the masses.
      I also see a mysterious disappearance of HCQ supplies from these countries, so as to keep the fear factor alive.

      • Depends whether you want to live like an Ugandan?

        Some pregnant women died in labour, unable to reach hospitals because of travel restrictions.
        Security forces – criticised by rights groups for abuses – beat and arrested some rule-breakers.
        .
        Opposition leaders accuse the government of using the pandemic as an excuse to restrict political gatherings and arrest opponents, charges the government denies.

        “A jobless person is better than a dead person,” state minister for health Robinah Nabbanja told Reuters. “The lockdown was completely justified.”
        .
        Uganda closed schools and banned large gatherings three days before confirming its first case on March 21.
        By the end of March, most businesses were shut, vehicle movement was banned, and an overnight curfew was in force. ……
        .
        Uganda – like China – could enforce aggressive containment measures with little domestic opposition.

  7. 1. The police are not there to protect and serve the public. They never were.

    2. The, sworn duty, of the police is to protect and serve the government.

    3. Throughout history, every brutal authoritarian regime were backed by the police.

    The police are not your friend. We all know of good cops we trust. But feelz don’t change the big picture. All the world’s large scale human rights abuses were largely carried out by ordinary people.

While a constable I will, to the best of my power, keep the peace and prevent offences against the peace, and will, to the best of my skill and knowledge, perform all the duties of the office of constable according to law. So help me God.”

  9. Most of you would have heard of “The Great Reset” I’m sure. Good article here on Spiked:

    https://www.spiked-online.com/2020/08/17/has-the-post-covid-future-already-been-decided/

    It’s not a crisis, it’s an “opportunity”.

    “Among those involved are Prince Charles, the secretary general of the United Nations, the managing director of the IMF, the CEOs of Mastercard, BP, the president of Microsoft, an official from the People’s Bank of China, and other global players. And recent UK attendees of Davos are a diverse group. Tony Blair, Sir David Attenborough and Prince William, for example. Greenpeace, the WWF and trade unions regularly cosy up with big oil, bankers and officials from some of the most brutal regimes on the planet.”

    Ok so no worries there then!
    Interesting, looking into the Global Shapers Community. Two hubs in NZ, Auckland and Chch. There you will find people with ties to the UN youth, recipients of ANZ grants, and even Prime Minister scholarships.

    Go onto the WEforum site and see just what is involved. Nothing new really, but it shows now the brazenness of it all. But please don’t worry, it’s just a little NWO thingee, nothing really.

  10. ACT’s David Seymour says Labour acting like a ‘one-party state’ after releasing video featuring shot of Ashley Bloomfield
    https://www.newshub.co.nz/home/politics/2020/08/act-s-david-seymour-says-labour-acting-like-a-one-party-state-after-video-featuring-shot-of-ashley-bloomfield.html

    ACT leader David Seymour argues it was “unacceptable for campaign videos to be filmed inside the Ministry of Health featuring public servants”.

    “How can the public have faith that the Ministry of Health will be held accountable for mistakes if it’s helping Labour with its campaign? We need to know whether Ashley Bloomfield agreed to be part of the Labour Party campaign advertisement, or whether Labour is abusing the civil service.

    “Other political parties don’t have access to the resources of Government and Labour should know better than abusing its privileged position.”

    Seymour said Dr Bloomfield’s appearance in the video was “the hallmark of a one party state”, suggesting Ardern would next appear alongside “the army and the chief of the air force”.

  13. Concerns raised over police complaints process, treatment of victims of police misconduct
    https://www.newshub.co.nz/home/new-zealand/2020/08/concerns-raised-over-police-complaints-process-treatment-of-victims-of-police-misconduct.html

    In a letter written to Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern and Justice Minister Andrew Little, the founder of the New Zealand Police Conduct Association (NZPCA), Shannon Parker, has called for an overhaul of the system for those mistreated by officers.

    Parker is asking why some instances of misconduct are not taken to court when the Independent Police Conduct Authority (IPCA) has ruled against the offending officer, and claims complaints filed by alleged victims are too often dismissed.

    “I think in the cases where the IPCA have ruled against the police, I think those matters should be put before the court. The IPCA has a judge, the judge decided that an offence had been committed,” Parker told Newshub.

    “It’s especially frustrating for the victim, when the IPCA has ruled it is an offense but the police are saying it isn’t.”

  14. A big bank holiday weekend of protest is coming up in London.

    On Saturday August 29, 12 noon at Trafalgar Square, a huge protest and march is planned by a broad coalition of freedom lovers.

    StandUpX say on their website: “We are living in a state of authoritarian control. We do not consent to Government social distancing measures infringing upon public and private life. We do not accept enforced masks. We do not accept a dictatorship of lockdowns, threats of lockdowns, and Covid Ghettos.

    “Forced, coerced and mandated vaccinations violate the principles of the Nuremberg Code which states ‘any preventive, diagnostic and therapeutic medical intervention is only to be carried out with the prior, free and informed consent of the person concerned.’

  15. A deeper perception of how this all “wokism” works.
    A good detailed article.

    …… Gramsci’s big idea was that cultural power preceded political power …..
    …….Communist Manifesto, ….. …… most of which have come to fruition such as universal public education, a progressive income tax, a national bank, and the industrialization of agriculture.
    …. guiding principle is that Western civilization is based on subjugation, dominance and tyranny. This takes many forms including “racism,” “patriarchy,” “heteronormativity” and “cisséxism” – all of which are predicated upon weaponized guilt. …..

    … wokeism is its evangelistic quality. …

    …. as if one were painting blood over their threshold to avoid the plague of the firstborn in ancient Egypt. ….
    … seminar ….. happening all across the country …. workplaces and on our college campuses – and many times even in elementary schools.
    They are totalitarian in nature but are increasingly a requirement of continued employment. …
    .
    ……. a concept of “original sin” (whiteness), holds blacks and (to a lesser degree) indigenous peoples as a sort of “holy” race, and has a process for confession. …… ….– there is no process for redemption in the world of the woke.
    ….. ….. no way to complete it and be redeemed.
    The fallen are simply fallen and constantly repaying their debt in a sort of state of karmic bankruptcy.

    A bit of a worry as corporations use our “perceptions”, but is our “awareness” enough to counter this “wokeness”.
    Worth reading the entire article.

    SunTzu:- If you know the enemy and know yourself, you need not fear the result of a hundred battles.

    • As touched on in my above link, and to complete SunTzu’s quote, we need to know the truth and understand it.
      .
      Is woke capitalism profitable or does “get woke, go broke” hold true?
      .
      …. Starbucks, Dunkin’, Nike, Adidas, Delta Air Lines, and American Airlines. Three companies, Starbucks, Nike, and Delta, make up the treatment group as they implemented a woke policy. Dunkin’, Adidas, and American Airlines make up the control group …..

      .
      …….. Mastery of the metagame confers success and strategic dominance, separating those who win bigly from those who just get by.
      It is the metagame which separates the Peter Thiels of the world from Joe Shmoe.
      .
      Given the pervasiveness of the culture wars, corporations that successfully engage in woke capitalism are playing the metagame.
      That is to say, they understand something that Joe Shmoe does not:
      Consumer demographics matter. ….
      .
      …… this isn’t to suggest that culture warriors are dumb or uninformed.
      Granted, some are just plain annoying.
      It’s more so that much of what they claim to be true isn’t so.
      If our aim is to have a discussion about big ideas, the first step is to determine what is factual and what is not.
      For the toxicity of the culture wars to be mitigated, truth must come before tribalism.

    Denzel Washington’s Speech Will Leave You SPEECHLESS – One of the Most Eye Opening Speeches Ever

    • With all due respect, “Discipline and hard work works. It is what successful people do” is hardly eye-opening.

      It’s common sense.
      Socialists will not like the promotion of “discipline and hard work” because it leads to inequality.

  19. 1pm – There are three new confirmed cases of COVID-19 in New Zealand, the Ministry of Health announced on Sunday.

    Coronavirus live updates: Latest on Auckland’s COVID-19 outbreak – Sunday, August 23
    https://www.newshub.co.nz/home/new-zealand/2020/08/coronavirus-live-updates-latest-on-auckland-s-covid-19-outbreak-sunday-august-23.html

    1:10pm – The Ministry of Health has announced that from Sunday, people travelling for work can now transit through Auckland without an exemption to pass through the regional boundary checkpoints.

    “People can now transit through Auckland without stopping in order to travel for work. They must show evidence of the purpose of their travel and their departure point and destination, but an exemption is no longer required.”

    The Ministry of Health says as of today it has received more than 10,300 applications for exemptions – more than 1,500 applications have been approved and around 400 have been declined.

    – Sounds like the MoH couldn’t process all the applications!

    I find it absolutely, unequivocally astounding – totally beyond adjectives – that here we are, in a modern democracy – and such an ideologically-driven, economic and environmental rort is being allowed to occur.”

  22. Coronavirus: COVID-19 and CRL ‘nail in the coffin’ for central Auckland businesses
    https://www.newshub.co.nz/home/money/2020/08/coronavirus-covid-19-and-crl-nail-in-the-coffin-for-central-auckland-businesses.html

    Work around Albert St was initially scheduled to end in 2019, but is now expected to be completed “towards the end of 2020”, with work continuing under level 3.

    Meanwhile, businesses elsewhere in the city are calling for a level 1.5, arguing that level 3 is too restrictive.

    “People are a lot more educated than they were when they were first put in place,” Takapuna Business Association chief executive Terence Harpur told Newshub.

    • Reading through WG’s link, one thing stood out…….the businesses that have been kicked the hardest are part of the retail racket.

      Now far be it from me to criticise the way the no-hopers employed in the centre of Aukland spend their largely unearned salaries but is shopping the end all & apex of human existence? When an Auk isn’t “getting that new jumper” what is about our existence that is devalued?

      The jumper was, odds on, made overseas for a pittance & the ticket clipped by an importer, a distributor & the ridiculous rent paid by the retailer. What is lost should the buyer purchase the item at their local op shop or Warehouse?

      Ninety percent or more of this country’s retailers could go to the wall before anyone other than they & the recreational shopper would notice. Before we applaud the government that grants them relief let’s figure out their place in the food chain.

    From another blog…. sorry to those that object

    “We live on the edge southern border In Waikato but the checkpoint is a few kms into Waikato so we can legally move back and forth through the checkpoint. Last night coming home from dinner close to midnight we had a chat with the lovely police officer. He said they are doing rolling 12 hour shifts and there are at least 4 officers on at a time so at least 8 officers at 13 checkpoints, so at least 104 police officers a day and actually a lot more officers Bombay. He said they have had their rosters changed to continue doing checkpoints until mid sept!!!”

  26. This should be the last straw for the British.

    The BBC is discussing whether to drop Rule Britannia and Land of Hope and Glory from the Last Night of the Proms in the wake of the Black Lives Matter movement.

    The traditional anthems are hugely popular with the flag-waving prommers who ordinarily cram into the Royal Albert Hall, but organisers fear a backlash because of their perceived association with colonialism and slavery.

    Dalia Stasevska, 35, from Finland, who is conducting the Last Night, is among those said to be keen to modernise the evening’s repertoire and reduce the patriotic elements.
    https://www.thetimes.co.uk/article/rule-britannia-faces-axe-in-bbcs-black-lives-matter-proms-0fvhwmwlm

    Take some steps.
    The back lash should be “Axe that, Axe the BBC” ! as some one like Margaret Thatcher would say.
    Will whimpish Boris take note, and also stop all illegal migrants, while he is at it.
    Return that whimpish Finnish conductor while at it too.
    Regain some pride in Britain’s culture.
    Then stride out like Trump, make decisions, clean out your swamp, no prisoners, and 2 terms and more would be your reward.

      • Britain’s problem was that it won WW2.

        Unlike those that had been vanquished (eg Germany) & overrun (eg France) there was no Marshall Plan. Britain was massively indebted to the USA while its manufacturing base & infrastructure was worn out.

        But there was worse. Commie unions were determined to win the class struggle & were prepared to break their nation to do it. Their government decided rightly or wrongly that massive immigration was the only way to break the union stranglehold & provide affordable labour.

        This was the straw that broke the back of a united kingdom. Once celebration of a nation’s pride & accomplishments is considered ‘racist” the end of the road has been sighted.

      Other wise why do some of them come.
      Are some of them actually invaders, with a cause? an agenda? that does not fit in immediate inhabitants of Britain,

      The actions of a critical few seem to belie the reasons why they come.
      Change laws to give affect to sharia.
      To find an ‘honorability’ in receiving accommodation, cash allowances, etc.. for their life & family.
      Change a foreign policy of “their new” country.
      To make many changes in the education, health, judiciary systems. etc..

    Ten per cent of bars and restaurants set to close in next fortnight: Hospitality Association

    And while 10,000 jobs have been lost already, it expects that to climb to a whopping 50,000.

    And hospitality advocate Chloe King says she’s inundated with complaints from upset workers who say they haven’t been paid, despite the wage subsidy being received by their employers.

    Over $13 billion dollars has been handed out in the wage subsidy – but close to $400 million of that has been repaid.

    The Social Development Ministry says there’s been 3,500 complaints about misuse of the subsidy and about 10 per cent of those are being investigated.

      Interest rates down to historical lows.
      In the late 90s, many people had Excel spreadsheets that indicated that at a term deposit rate of 7%, they would have enough savings to last them until the age of 95. Then, when term deposit rates fell to around 3%, they learned that their savings would only last them until the age of 75.
      Now, with term deposit returns at Japanese levels (i.e., nothing) people are looking hard at shares or are cutting back their spending to the bone. The share market is just silly at the moment. The fundamentals are not good. But what do I know?!
      The lower the interest rates, the less that older people will spend. The harder that they will try to economize.

      I must confess, we can learn to do without pubs, cafes, restaurants, theme parks, cruises, hotels and other vacuous tourist money pits. It’s a roof over your head, food on the table and your health that are the really important things to most people approaching retirement.

      At lunchtime I am enjoying my wife’s cabbage, daikon and bacon soup that we have with the bread I bake in my Panasonic breadmaker. I cannot afford $24 for some fancy over-cooked pasta dish in Kohimarama for lunch. That’s equivalent to two bottle of cheap Shiraz and a large bag of house-brand peanuts (enough to last me for two weekends).

  32. 1st and 2nd amendment issues that a university thought they could intimidate and make this student back down.

    “Student Banned From Campus For Posting Picture With A Gun”
    https://youtu.be/3glyQwacfwM
    13 minutes 57 secs : •Jul 17, 2020

    Austin Tong, a student at Fordham University, was punished by his school after posting a photo holding a gun with the caption “Don’t Tread On Me” and another of David Dorn, the black security guard [ex police officer] murdered during the George Floyd protests.
    Austin joins Campus Reform’s Cabot Phillips to tell his story and talk about what he’s doing to fight back:

    A very articulate, knowledgeable young guy.
    He puts his case very well, showing how much the university is over stepping the marks.
    The ‘varsity claims he is racist, claims he is threatening, but that infringes on his free speech rights, even the rights codes granted by that school.
    Pointing that it is hypocritical that no-one cared about that retired murdered black officer. Is that racism?
    His caption, “do not tread on me”
    Austin tells how the people (cancel culture) in the USA have already the power, unlike other countries and they should “check their American privilege” also.
    “public safety officers” came to his house late at night, 10:00 pm. to see if he was a safe person.
    Yet other past students recently threw molotov cocktails.
    Accused of “hate crime bias” & “threatening intimidation”.
    Banned from campus, but can take “online courses” and have to take “mandatory inclusion courses” or as Austin says, “political re-education” plus an apology letter.
    This issue going public, has surprised Austin how much support he has been given.

    – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

    More back ground here.
    The US Department of Education investigation of this case seems to have started on 20th Aug 2020.
    This report, particularly the “scribd” part, (you may have to click on that part to get it to scroll) shows that an action has been filed in civil damages, and a motion to dismiss by the university on 14th Aug.

  34. I guess it will all be Trump’s fault, too much carbon, etc…

    Set your thermostat to 78° or higher between 3 and 10 P.M.
    Refrain from major appliance use between 3 and 10 P.M.
    Postpone using major appliances like the oven, dishwasher, clothes washer, and dryer until cooler times of the day to avoid heating up your home.
    Run your dishwasher and clothes washer only when full. Wait until after 9 p.m. to use these and other major appliances.
    When possible, wash clothes in cold water. About 90 percent of the energy used in a clothes washer goes to water heating.
    After years of being unable to deliver the citizens of California enough water,

    https://climatechangedispatch.com/thanks-to-democrat-rule-california-is-officially-a-failed-state/

    Closing down power plants to be ’emission free’, is finally biting Californians in their progressive energy systems, that can not beat clouds, or no winds.
    https://www.breitbart.com/politics/2020/08/17/nolte-blackouts-force-newsom-to-admit-green-energy-falls-short/

    To pursue geothermal energy, they have just started will make the cost of electricity triple the cost of wind or solar energy.

    Then in conjunction with this are the wild fires.
    …… Almost every firefighting resource in California is battling the hundreds of blazes the include two of the largest wildfires in the state’s history, ……
    …… fewer prison inmates because of early releases during the Covid-19 pandemic.
    Inmate firefighters “are an integral part of our firefighting operations,” ……
    ….. About 64,600 people in San Mateo and Santa Cruz counties have been told to evacuate …..
    https://edition.cnn.com/2020/08/21/us/california-wildfires/index.html

    I am pretty sure that no Indians or even the cowboys put out any fires years a century or so ago, so the fuel load will be coming very high also, making hotter fires, and more difficult to control, in following all those “green” regulations.
