Yet Another Warning That Makes It Clear That We Should All Be Bracing For A Major Seismic Event Along The West Coast

This article was oriinally published by Michael Snyder at The End of the American Dream. 

While most Americans remain completely fixated on the upcoming presidential election, large earthquakes continue to rattle the Ring of Fire at an alarming rate.  On Monday, a magnitude 7.5 quake struck near the little town of Sand Point, Alaska, and it was felt over a very large area.

In fact, it is being reported that shaking could be felt “as far away as Chugiak, Anchorage, and Bethel”.  Following the initial earthquake, there was a series of very large aftershocks.  As I write this article, there have already been 19 aftershocks of at least magnitude 4.0 in the region.  By the time most of you read this article, that number will almost certainly be higher.  Sadly, even though we have been witnessing a lot of shaking along the southern coast of Alaska and the west coast of the continental United States in recent months, very few experts seem concerned about the possibility that a very large seismic event could be coming.

But they should be.

Before I get to that, let’s talk about what just happened.  The magnitude 7.5 quake triggered a tsunami warning for almost everyone living along the southern Alaska coastline, and two relatively small tsunami waves were reported

The magnitude 7.5 earthquake near Sand Point, Alaska, generated a tsunami, Scott Langley with the National Tsunami Warning Center said Monday afternoon.

Langley said the tsunami sent two waves, each measuring 130 centimeters (4 feet, 3 inches) high. But observers onshore reported the waves appeared to be 1.5 feet (45.7 centimeters) and 2 feet (61 cm) over high tide.

The good news is that this event did not do a whole lot of damage, but it definitely frightened many of the local residents.  Here is just one example

Candace Nelson, her kids and dogs hid under the table as the earthquake shook Cold Bay, about 90 miles west of Sand Point.

“My kids are all doing good. Brooke, Wilder and Scout all huddled under our kitchen table till the shaking stopped,” she told CNN as the family waited for more news about the tsunami. “The dogs were more concerned as to what the heck we were doing under the table.”

The location where this earthquake happened is not too far from where we witnessed a magnitude 7.8 quake back in July.

Could it be possible that all of this activity is building up to something even larger?

According to one expert, the area where these quakes have been occurring is right where “the Pacific Plate actually goes underneath the North American Plate”…

“This is an area where the Pacific Plate is subducting underneath the North American Plate. And because of that, the Pacific Plate actually goes underneath the North American Plate, where it melts,” Caruso said, noting that’s why there are volcanoes in the region.

Further south along the Ring of Fire, a swarm of hundreds of earthquakes in southern California was getting international attention just a few weeks ago

Hundreds of small earthquakes continue to rattle southern California, sending light shaking into San Diego County, as experts raise the odds that a much larger tremor could strike in the coming days.

The U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) reported that hundreds of earthquakes had been reported by Wednesday night in the Salton Trough near Westmorland and more than a dozen more sizeable earthquakes on Thursday.

I have been warning over and over again that it is just a matter of time before “the Big One” finally hits California.  Scientists have told us that the San Andreas Fault has the potential “to unzip all at once”, and if that happens it would be a disaster, unlike anything that we have ever seen before in all of U.S. history.  Experts have warned that some portions of southern California could sink by several feet “relatively instantaneously”, and that such an event “could plunge large parts of California into the sea almost instantly”.

Meanwhile, Steve Quayle and others have been relentlessly sounding the alarm about the Cascadia Subduction Zone.  If a magnitude 9.0 earthquake struck along the Cascadia Subduction Zone right now, it would only take 15 to 20 minutes for the very first tsunami waves to start hitting the coast of Washington.  Oregon State University paleoseismologist Chris Goldfinger believes that such an event could produce a giant wall of water up to 100 feet high that would utterly destroy everything that it encounters.

In a previous article, I included a quote from the former head of FEMA’s Region X about what such a disaster would mean for those living in the Northwest

If the entire zone gives way at once, an event that seismologists call a full-margin rupture, the magnitude will be somewhere between 8.7 and 9.2. That’s the very big one.

…By the time the shaking has ceased and the tsunami has receded, the region will be unrecognizable. Kenneth Murphy, who directs FEMA’s Region X, the division responsible for Oregon, Washington, Idaho, and Alaska, says, “Our operating assumption is that everything west of Interstate 5 will be toast.”

In the Pacific Northwest, everything west of Interstate 5 covers some hundred and forty thousand square miles, including Seattle, Tacoma, Portland, Eugene, Salem (the capital city of Oregon), Olympia (the capital of Washington), and some seven million people.

The phrase “everything west of Interstate 5 will be toast” has stuck with me ever since I first read that quote.

Scientists assure us that it is just a matter of time before this actually happens, but most people are not taking those warnings very seriously.

And let us not forget that there are several major volcanoes in the Northwest as well.

In particular, I have been deeply concerned about the potential for an eruption of Mt. Rainier for a very long time.  I once wrote an article in which I dubbed Mt. Rainier “the most dangerous mountain in the United States”, and that statement is definitely still true today.

Scientists tell us that someday a massive eruption of Mt. Rainier will send super-heated tsunamis of hot mud known as “lahars” racing toward highly populated communities in the Northwest at speeds of up to 50 miles per hour.  For many, official warnings will come far too late and they will die before they even realize what hit them.

For the next several months, I will be watching seismic activity along the U.S. portion of the Ring of Fire much more carefully than normal.

There has been so much shaking going on already, and an unprecedented disaster could very literally happen at any moment.

actress anti-Trump California Donald Trump Francia raisa Intelwars Left-wing celebrities Trump rally watch

Ranting actress claims Trump supporters ‘f***ing boxed me in’ on freeway, cries that they were ‘pointing at me and laughing at a Mexican’

Actress Francia Raisa claimed Sunday, without evidence, that supporters of President Donald Trump traveling to a rally boxed her in while she was driving on Interstate 405 in southern California, wouldn’t let her go around, and ridiculed her in the process.

Raisa — the 32-year-old star of “Grown-ish” and recent kidney donor to Selena Gomez — delivered her tearful rant while driving her vehicle. (Content warning: Language):


Selena Gomez’s Kidney Donor Francia Raisa Tormented by Trump Caravan

youtu.be

“I was just on the 405, and I got stuck in that stupid Trump rally, and they f***ing boxed me in and they’re pointing at me and laughing at me, saying, ‘Ha ha.’ And literally I almost crashed because they wouldn’t let me out,” she said. “I was trying to go around it. … They boxed me in on the f***ing freeway. All I wanted to do was go around. And they were just being so violent. I could have crashed. I could’ve f***ing crashed. It was so dangerous. And I just don’t understand why that’s the country that y’all are supposedly wanting right now. Really? That’s what makes America great? That’s f***ed up. I could have f***ing died right now. That was so f***ing dangerous, pointing at me and laughing at a Mexican. Oh God, that was really f***ing scary.”

‘The line of cars seems to go for miles and miles’

TMZ posted a gushing story about Raisa’s so-far unverified claims, noting Twitter clips and photos of a Trump caravan that appeared to be heading south to Newport Beach in Orange County for a Trump fundraiser:

“To celebrate, it seems like a parade of Trump flag-waving drivers are clogging the lanes and cruising incredibly slow to take their sweet time,” TMZ wrote.

“The line of cars seems to go for miles and miles — the distance from central L.A. to Newport is about 44 miles give or take — and lots of people are posting shots of the traffic jam, either in the thick of it, or passing … so it’s clear Francia dealt with something wild out there,” the outlet added.

Errol Webber, a California Republican running for Congress, posted the following video:

What was the reaction to Raisa’s claims?

As you might imagine, lots of fans and fellow left-wingers lined up behind Raisa and used her unverified claims as a reason to not vote for Trump on Election Day — but not everyone was buying her story:

“So she was driving peacefully down the road and then was attacked and tormented for no reason? That doesn’t even make sense,” one Twitter user said. “Was she flipping people off or yelling or bring an a**hole? All different colors of people today on videos from highway. No one cares that you’re Mexican!”

This user claimed Raisa was doing the tormenting: “OMG!! what a liar!! This girl has no shame. I was in that rally; she passed us with anger flipping everybody like there is no tomorrow! So they did not move out of her way… it was in [a] Latinos for Trump parade!! Why the hell are you playing the Mexican card??”

And Trump-supporting singer Joy Villa — who famously donned a “Make America Great Again” dress at the Grammys in 2017 — delivered the following video response:

California Cultural Marxism dianne feinstein Intelwars Progressivism Revisionist history san francisco school board

San Francisco may change ‘inappropriate’ names of schools honoring Washington, Lincoln, and even Sen. Dianne Feinstein

Officials in San Francisco are pushing to rename several public schools in an attempt to purge school buildings of names deemed “inappropriate” like Presidents George Washington or Abraham Lincoln.

Even a school building named for Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) is on a list of 44 sites that parents and educators have been told must be renamed for having connections to slavery, genocide, or oppression,
the San Francisco Chronicle reported. Of the 125 schools in the San Francisco district, more than a third have been added to the list for having objectionable names, including Balboa, Lowell and Mission high schools, Roosevelt and Presidio middle schools, and Webster, Sanchez and Jose Ortega elementary schools.

The San Francisco School Names Advisory Committee is requiring each school on the list to brainstorm new names by Dec. 18. The new names will be presented to the school board in late January or early February, at which time the board will vote on any recommended name changes.

The committee was called for in a 2018 resolution requiring a blue ribbon panel to study school names and submit recommendations for changes.

“The panel includes 12 community members appointed by the superintendent and approved by the school board, as well as district staff members and board President Mark Sanchez,” the Chronicle reported. “It was formed in January and has since met 10 times, with members doing their own research, looking at newspaper articles, among other resources to identify whether the name on a school met the criteria for renaming, which includes anyone or anything associated with slavery, genocide, colonization, exploitation and oppression, among other factors.”

The committee’s specific criteria for a school name to be deemed “inappropriate” includes: Anyone directly involved in the colonization of people; slave owners or participants in enslavement; perpetrators of genocide or slavery; those who exploit workers/people; those who directly oppressed or abused women, children, queer or transgender people; those connected to any human rights or environmental abuses; those who are known racists and/or white supremacists and/or espoused racist beliefs.

Schools named for Presidents George Washington and Thomas Jefferson made the list because they were slave owners. Abraham Lincoln High School must be renamed because the nation’s 16th president, who issued the Emancipation Proclamation ending slavery in the South, also ordered the executions of 38 Dakota tribe Native Americans involved in a violent conflict with white settlers in Minnesota.

Dianne Feinstein Elementary, a school named for California’s sitting senior senator, made the list because as mayor of San Francisco in 1986, Feinstein reportedly replaced a vandalized Confederate flag at City Hall.

According to the Chronicle, many parents and principals are not thrilled that renaming schools is a priority during a pandemic when many children are not even allowed to attend school and are tasked with virtual learning.

“Principals are devoting resources to this,” parent Jonathan Alloy said. His children attend Commodore Sloat Elementary, a school named for the Navy officer who
claimed California for the United States and one of the schools on the list. “We’re being presented with it as a fait accompli.”

The principal of Commodore Sloat told parents Wednesday that the school would need to come up with a new name because the committee said John D. Sloat was a colonizer who “claimed/stole” California from Mexico.

“We’re not actually helping disadvantaged children by changing the name of the school they can’t attend,” Alloy said, characterizing the timing as absurd.

Last week, five high school alumni associations sent a letter to the school district criticizing the committee for neglecting to consult professional historians or diverse ethnic communities.

“We need an inclusive process that will allow all communities to be heard, use professional historians applying verifiable data, issue a written report why a school name might be changed, so the community can make a considered decision,” the letter said.

The letter asked the board to “suspend the current process until everyone can safely return to school sites for the robust and thoughtful conversations you directed in the original board resolution.”

The president of the school board, Mark Sanchez, acknowledged that some will be unhappy with the changes.

“I don’t think there is ever going to be a time when people are ready for this,” he said. “Predictably people are going to be upset no matter when we do this.”

He added that it was unlikely all 44 schools would have their names changed, but noted that every school on the list “should be prepared.”

Here’s the list of proposed schools to be renamed and their namesakes, courtesy of the Chronicle:

  • Balboa High School, Spanish explorer Vasco Nunez de Balboa
  • Abraham Lincoln High School, U.S. president
  • Mission High School, Mission Dolores
  • George Washington High School, first U.S. president
  • Lowell High School, poet/critic James R. Lowell

  • Everett Middle School, Edward Everett, American statesman
  • Herbert Hoover Middle School, U.S. president
  • James Lick Middle School, land baron
  • Presidio Middle School S.F. military post
  • Roosevelt Middle School, Theodore or F.D., both U.S. presidents
  • Lawton K-8, U.S. Army officer Henry Ware Lawton
  • Claire Lilienthal (two sites), S.F. school board member
  • Paul Revere K-8, American Revolution patriot
  • Alamo Elementary, a poplar tree or the site of Texas Revolution battle
  • Alvarado Elementary, Pedro de Alvarado, conquistador
  • Bryant Elementary, author Edwin Bryant
  • Clarendon Elementary Second Community and Japanese Bilingual Bicultural Program, Edward Hyde Earl of Clarendon, English politician
  • El Dorado Elementary, mythical City of Gold
  • Dianne Feinstein Elementary, U.S. senator and former S.F. mayor
  • Garfield Elementary, James Garfield, U.S. president
  • Grattan Elementary, William Henry Grattan, Irish author
  • Jefferson Elementary, Thomas Jefferson, U.S. president
  • Francis Scott Key Elementary, composer of Star-Spangled Banner
  • Frank McCoppin Elementary, S.F. mayor
  • McKinley Elementary, William McKinley, U.S. president
  • Marshall Elementary, James Wilson Marshall, sawmill worker at Sutter’s Mill
  • Monroe Elementary, James Monroe, U.S. president
  • John Muir Elementary, naturalist
  • Jose Ortega Elementary, Spanish philosopher
  • Sanchez Elementary, Jose Bernardo Sanchez, Spanish missionary
  • Junipero Serra Elementary, Spanish priest
  • Sheridan Elementary, Gen. Philip Sheridan
  • Sherman Elementary, Gen. William Tecumseh Sherman
  • Commodore Sloat Elementary, John Sloat, Navy officer
  • Robert Louis Stevenson Elementary, author
  • Sutro Elementary, Adolph Sutro, S.F. mayor
  • Ulloa Elementary, Don Antonio de Ulloa, Spanish general
  • Daniel Webster Elementary, U.S. statesman
  • Noriega Early Education School, unclear
  • Presidio EES, S.F. military post
  • Stockton EES, Robert F. Stockton, Navy commodore
The Chronicle estimated that name changes will cost tens of thousands of dollars for each school that needs to replace signage.

California Campaign 2020 Intelwars mail Mail-in ballots Santa Monica usps

California man finds dozens of mail-in ballots discarded in alley trash cans

A California man is sounding the alarm bell after he found dozens of mail-in ballots mysteriously stuffed inside two Santa Monica trash cans.

The shocking discovery comes as the 2020 presidential election is well under way in terms of absentee and mail-in ballots. Voting by mail took newfound prominence in the national dialogue over the summer as leaders looked for safe methods of conducting a national election amid the COVID-19 pandemic.

Many Americans, therefore, have chosen to cast their vote via mail-in ballot, which Republican critics say increases the possibility of voter fraud.

What are the details?

Osvaldo Jimenez told KABC-TV that he made the alarming discovery last Thursday. Stuffed inside a Santa Monica trash can, Jimenez discovered dozens of official ballots, along with other personal mail items, such as bank statements.

“I opened the trash can, and I see a lot of envelopes and ballots, especially ballot envelopes in the trash can, and I knew right away that was not normal,” Jimenez said. “I thought it was somebody playing a prank. Nobody’s going to throw ballot envelopes in the trash can.”

Jimenez’s wife posted pictures of the trashed ballots on social media, KCBS-TV reported.

According to KABC, Jimenez recovered the ballots and phoned police.

“If it was my ballot in there, I would want somebody to, you know, recover it,” Jimenez told KABC. “Every vote counts, whichever party it is.”

Shockingly, Jimenez later discovered even more mail-in ballots in a separate trash can, KABC reported.

How the ballots ended up in the trash cans is not clear. Law enforcement is investigating the incidents, as is the United States Postal Service.

Anything else?

As mail-in ballots play a greater role in the election than they ever have before, there have numerous stories of suspicious activities happening with mail.

For example, the U.S. Postal Service is investigating an incident that happened in Glendale, California, last month in which massive bags of mail were mysteriously dumped in a parking lot.

Then, just last week, a New Jersey mail carrier was arrested after police say he dumped thousands of mail pieces he was supposed to deliver. Among the pieces of discarded mail were 99 ballots.

Meanwhile, an investigation was launched in Virginia last week after six USPS collection boxes were broken into, sparking new fears that mail-in ballots could be compromised or stolen.

Election officials nationwide, however, say that despite mail-in ballots playing a significant role in this year’s election, the integrity of the election will not be compromised.

California conflicting advice eating food Gavin newsome government guidance Headline News Intelwars LUNACY Mask mandates Masks mocking muzzle New World Order ritual occultic political theatre remove the mask ruling class shame muzzle taking bites Twitter wear the mask

CA Governor Says “Wear Masks Between Bites” When Eating

The ruling class is desperate to have everyone masked up. California’s governor Gavin Newsome says you should wear your mask in between taking bites of food. This lunacy is not ending, but ramping up.

At least Newsom is being ridiculed on social media after urging diners to wear their masks in between bites.  But The ruling class is desperate to have everyone masked up. California’s governor Gavin Newsome says you should wear your mask in between taking bites of food. This lunacy is not ending, but raming up.he also warned them to “minimize the number of times you take [the mask] off.”

Are Face Masks & COVID Rituals Occultist Symbols For Submission?

Hot Mic Moment: Lawmakers Admit Masks Are All “Political Theatre”

There is definitely an effort to make people believe that the masks work and wearing your symbolic muzzle is how to prevent infection from the COVID-19 scamdemic. The Democrat governor’s office tweeted on October 3: “Going out to eat with members of your household this weekend? Don’t forget to keep your mask on in between bites. Do your part to keep those around you healthy.” Yet, in the same post, there’s a graphic that says: “minimize the number of times you take your mask off.”

The following Twitter user nailed my sentiments about all of the mask mandates:

People have started to figure it all out though:

Newsome is taking heat for these hypocritical and contradictory posts on social media. Some of these governors sure do have a religious addiction to mask-wearing. Even the avatar which was chosen by the governor’s office says: “wear a mask.” With President Donald Trump testing positive for COVID-19, the mask propaganda will increase. Trump himself had already been ridiculed and shamed for refusing to wear a face mask 24/7.

California Coronavirus COVID-19 Gavin Newsom Intelwars Masks Restaurant diners

Restaurant diners should put on masks ‘in between bites,’ California Gov. Gavin Newsom declares. And Twitter users savage him.

Restaurant diners should put on their masks “in between bites” to help slow the spread of the coronavirus, according to California Gov. Gavin Newsom, a far-left Democrat.

What are the details?

“Going out to eat with members of your household this weekend?” the governor’s office said in a Saturday tweet. “Don’t forget to keep your mask on in between bites.”

“Do your part to keep those around you healthy,” according to the tweet’s text, which added a “Slow the Spread” hashtag.

Contradiction, much?

Interestingly the tweet includes an image showing a diner wearing a mask while reading a menu, then with her mask off while eating, and then with her mask on again after finishing her meal; the image is titled, “COVD-19 DINER TIP 1: Minimize the number of times you take your mask off.” The graphic’s message is the opposite of Newsom’s suggestion, which would increase the number of times masks are removed since he wants them placed on between bites.

How are folks reacting to the message?

As you might expect, Newsom & Co.’s nanny-like micromanagement and contradictory statements received some sarcastic pushback on Twitter:

  • “Should we wash our hands after touching our mask each time we remove it between bites? What if I’m eating chips and salsa and I go for a double dip?” one user wondered. “Is that technically two bites since it’s the same chip?”
  • The same user brought up a second quandary: “What if I take a bite of the chip (first dip) and it gets lodged in my throat and I start choking? Should I put the mask on first and then start coughing or would it be OK to try and preserve my life first without the mask?”
  • “The best part is that the text and the image completely contradict each other,” a commenter pointed out. “How do you limit the number of time you take your mask off, if you take it off for every bite?

    If you’re taking huge bites and choke, is anyone allowed to do the Heimlich?”

  • Another user was downright blunt: “… if I’m at a table with my family and appropriately distanced from others THERE’S NO CHANCE IN HELL I’M WEARING A MASK BETWEEN BITES. YOU’RE INSANE!”
  • “This embarrasses me, a Californian who voted for Newsom,” another user said. “Mask-wearing/social distancing are vital, but this is ridiculous. Touching your mask that frequently is worse. Patio dining, masked servers, masked patrons except when eating/drinking. Take this down & alter the directive.”
  • “Is this now a parody account? This advice is absolutely terrible and you should go sit in the corner for an hour and think about your poor choices (and tweets),” another user noted. “Seriously, this is the official account for the governor of California. My goodness. Get it together please!”

Anything else?

California has allowed limited indoor dining to resume in a number of counties, and San Francisco allowed indoor dining last week at 25% capacity, Fox News reported. There have been over 800,000 coronavirus cases and over 16,000 deaths in the state related to it, the cable network added.

A Record: 4 Million Acres Burned In California

A record 4 million acres have burned in California this year. Fire officials said that more than 8,200 fires have consumed more than double the previous record.

The exact amount of land burned is still unknown, and rising, however, annual statistics from the department dating to 1987 show that 2020 has more than doubled the previous record.  Firefighters, totaling more than 20,000, some coming from as far away as Israel, have responded to scores of major fires across the state this year. Thirty-one people have died in blazes in so far this year.

The largest, most destructive blazes have occurred since mid-August, when thousands of lightning strikes sparked dozens of fires in Northern California, including the largest wildfire in state history, the nearly 1 million-acre August Complex fire, which is burning across six counties.

The Glass fire also created a major problem for those north of San Francisco. Thousands of firefighters continue battling the fire that roared through wine country September 27.  More than 36,000 people remain under mandatory evacuation orders in Sonoma and Napa counties Sunday, Cal Fire Deputy Chief Jonathan Cox said. As 12 teams continued surveying damage from the Glass Fire, the number of homes and businesses that have been destroyed rose to 564, Cox said. The teams have surveyed about 50 percent of the area, he said.

These fires have been devastating to those living in California and the smoke has traveled far. The grey smoky haze coating much of the west – from Portland, Oregon, to Santa Barbara, California, has created hazardous conditions that public health officials are concerned will have an impact even after the smoke clears. Researchers at Stanford University attributed roughly up to 3,000 additional deaths in California to just one month of the wildfire smoke, especially for at-risk or elderly people, according to The Guardian.

California Catholic high school Conservative students Don't tread on me First Amendment Gadsden flag Intelwars Racism accusation Young america's foundation

‘Don’t Tread on Me’ image considered ‘racial harassment’? Catholic school allegedly orders conservative students to nix Gadsden flag

Conservative students at a Catholic high school in California said the administration ordered them to remove the image of the Gadsden flag from a promotional video as the flag could be considered “racial harassment,” Young America’s Foundation reported.

What are the details?

The organization said it obtained an email from Chris Walter — Loyola High School’s director of student activities — to a conservative student that said “you will have to remove the Don’t Tread on Me image” and cited an Equal Employment Opportunity Commission case.

YAF said Walter claimed the EEOC ruled that displaying the Gadsden flag in the workplace “could be considered racial harassment, depending on the circumstances” — and the organization said such a claim is “blatantly false.”

More from Young America’s Foundation:

The EEOC case he is citing clearly states that “it would have been premature and inappropriate for EEOC to determine, one way or the other, the merits of the U.S. Postal Service’s argument that the Gadsden Flag and its slogan do not have any racial connotations whatsoever,” and that “EEOC’s decision simply ordered the agency – the U.S. Postal Service – to investigate the allegations. EEOC’s decision made no factual or legal determination on whether discrimination actually occurred.”

YAF said it reached out to Loyola High School but did not receive a response in time for publication.

History teachers there ought to know that the symbol on the flag was created by Christopher Gadsden — a general in the Continental Army during the Revolutionary War — and gained favor among colonists who wanted independence from Great Britain.

What did the student in question have to say?

Speaking on the condition of anonymity, the student who reported the alleged incident to YAF’s Campus Bias Tip Line told the organization that the “Don’t Tread on Me” crackdown is frustrating.

“This is just a small example of the different struggles conservative students go through while in school,” the student told YAF. “Students should have the freedom to express their beliefs and values in a school environment without having to fear the repercussion that can arise.”

YAF went further and characterized the mandate to the conservative students as “bullying” in an effort to “silence speech” that isn’t in line with what the school says is acceptable.

California Diversity Gavin Newsom Intelwars Racial justice Racial quotas social justice State politics

California implements state-mandated racial quotas for corporate boards, creates task force to study slavery reparations

California now leads the nation in corporate affirmative action as Democratic Gov. Gavin Newsom signed into law Wednesday a bill mandating racial and sexual identity quotas for corporate boards.

The new law requires publicly traded businesses with headquarters located in California to hire at least one diverse board member from an “underrepresented community” by 2021, Fox Business reports. To qualify as underrepresented, an individual must self-identify as black, Latino, Asian, Pacific Islander, Native American, Native Hawaiian, or Alaska Native, or as gay, lesbian, bisexual, or transgender.

Corporate boards with four to nine directors must hire at least two diverse individuals by the end of 2022. If a company has nine or more directors they must make three diverse hires. Punitive fines of $100,000 for the first violation and $300,000 for repeat violations will be levied against companies that do not comply with the state quotas.

The new law builds on a 2018 law that required boardrooms to hire at least one female director by 2019. Conservative groups have challenged the diversity statute in court, arguing the law is unconstitutional under the equal protection clause of the 14th Amendment.

Newsom hailed the law as an important step toward ensuring racial representation in powerful corporations.

“When we talk about racial justice, we talk about power and needing to have seats at the table,” Newsom said at the online signing ceremony for the new law.

“The new law represents a big step forward for racial equity,” said Democratic state Assemblyman Chris Holden, one of the authors of the bill, in a statement. “While some corporations were already leading the way to combat implicit bias, now, all of California’s corporate boards will better reflect the diversity of our state.”

The new diversity quotas are part of a larger package of racial legislation signed into law on Wednesday. The package includes a law creating a task force to study and make recommendations on reparations to the black community for slavery. New laws also prohibit the use of peremptory challenges to remove potential jurors based on racial, ethnic, religious, or gender identity and allow judges to alter sentences that are believed to involve racial or ethnic discrimination.

“As a nation, we can only truly thrive when every one of us has the opportunity to thrive. Our painful history of slavery has evolved into structural racism and bias built into and permeating throughout our democratic and economic institutions,” said Gov. Newsom. “California’s rich diversity is our greatest asset, and we won’t turn away from this moment to make right the discrimination and disadvantages that Black Californians and people of color still face. While there is still so much work to do to unravel this legacy, these pieces of legislation are important steps in the right direction to building a more inclusive and equitable future for all.”

California Intelwars state of emergency wildfires Wine country

State of emergency declared in California wine country as deadly wildfires rage

Gov. Gavin Newsom (D) has declared a state of emergency in three California counties known for their wine production, after wildfires claimed lives while consuming more than 100 structures and threatening thousands more in blazes fire officials said Monday night were “0%” contained.

What are the details?

The governor announced his emergency proclamation for Napa, Sonoma, and Shasta counties after two fires known as the Glass and Zogg fires burned through “tens of thousands of acres” and prompted the evacuation of “tens of thousands of residents.”

According to CalFire, as of Monday night, 113 structures had been destroyed by the fires and another 8,500 were under threat.

One of the properties destroyed was Fairwinds Estate Winery in Calistoga, the ruins of which are pictured above.

NBC News reported that “three people were killed in the Zogg Fire,” which “has burned more than 40,000 acres.”

According to Fox News, “some 70,000 people are under evacuation orders.”

“We left with nothing, I mean, just, literally with nothing,” one sobbing resident told ABC News. “We’re so lucky to be alive.”

The New York Times noted weeks ago that “California’s wildfire season is already the most severe in modern history, measured by acres burned,” reporting at the time that “more than 2.5 million acres of land have burned in the state this year, nearly 20 times what had burned at this time last year.”

The fires in California have now scorched over 3.7 million acres, and 28 people have died in them so far this year, NBC News reported.

Alt Media Daily California Cases Conservatives COVID-19 division Economy exit Exodus fleeing freedom Headline News high taxes human migration Infections Intelwars Leftists liberal ideals Masters New York no bureaucracy no technocracy Politicians power Rob Bonta scamdemic schools slaves Social Engineering Social Media socialist dystopia wealth tax

The Great Conservative Migration And What It Means For The Future

This article was originally published by Brandon Smith at Alt-Market. 

The signs really began to become visible at the end of January 2020; there was an exodus of people brewing, and it was galvanizing fears on both sides of the political spectrum. The pandemic situation is cited by the mainstream media as the primary cause, but in reality, the migration had started at least 3 years earlier.

Americans were leaving certain states and cities behind by the tens of thousands, and these places were predominantly leftist in their policies and population. California, New York, Illinois, New Jersey, Maryland, Massachusetts, Connecticut, etc.; all of these progressive states were bleeding residents since 2017, the pandemic just accelerated the situation.

There are a number of reasons given for the dramatic shift in population, but two specific reasons stand above the rest: Economy and political ideals. The pandemic itself is only a minor motivator. Consider the fact that residents of California left the state in droves for Texas over the summer DESPITE the problem of COVID infection spikes in major metropolitan areas of the Lone Star State. People didn’t care, they just wanted to get the hell out of California as quickly as possible.

Again, the main reason given by former Californians was politics. They are conservatives or moderates that felt isolated or trapped in a far-left cesspool and they realized their future life prospects depended on them transplanting to a more free and less bureaucratic place.

The fear among conservatives was that the pandemic would smoke leftists out of their hives and that they would spread to more conservative areas and “take over”. This does not seem to be the case. In fact, it appears that most leftists are stubbornly refusing to acknowledge that their states are dying and are actively defending state policies on the web. Check out the angry and delusional comments from California progressives on this opinion article in Arizona telling them to leave their failed policies behind if they move to the state.

These people are suffering from some serious saltiness, and the fact that they are still trying to claim that states like California are economically stable shows how truly delusional they are. Conservative states have nothing to worry about – The lefties are too dumb to relocate. They’re going to sit within the rotting corpses of the states they killed and pretend it smells like roses. This is what they do; when they are wrong or when they have failed they double and triple down. It’s their defining characteristic.

In my state of Montana real estate purchases have surged over the past year. Recent data on school enrollment numbers are up 15% – 20% in cities like Missoula. This includes new students in public schools as well as those registered for homeschooling, and it’s a massive spike for the region. The majority of new students are recent transplants from other states. I have spoken with hundreds of these people personally and ALL of them said they were moving to Montana because they were conservative, many of them were preppers and many of them wanted to be around other conservatives in the event that the world continues on its current downward spiral.

They do sometimes mention the coronavirus situation, but they generally are not worried about the virus itself. Rather, they are concerned about the virus RESPONSE. Meaning, they want to retain their freedoms, they do not like the draconian restrictions put in place in their former states and they are trying to escape the business lockdowns that are killing local economies.

Some states like California have responded as leftists typically do, by seeking to punish people for walking away from the collective. This includes a new Wealth Tax law in the works that would require people with high incomes such as business owners leaving California to continue to pay taxes to the state for 10 years, even though they no longer live there. In other words, successful business owners who leave California will have to pay taxes to two separate state governments at the same time.

California Assemblyman Rob Bonta, one of the people supporting the Wealth Tax proposal, asserts that the pandemic is the cause of California’s economic troubles including a huge surge in the homeless population. However, the spike in poverty and homelessness was escalating well before the coronavirus ever appeared. It was the hard-left policies of the state government that caused this mess; they can’t blame everything on COVID, though conmen like Bonta will certainly try.

The fact that leftist states are poised to institute punishments or disincentives for leaving (which is unconstitutional, by the way), shows just how bad the migration has become for them. Frankly, these state governments need to be taught a lesson, and one of the only lessons they understand is the loss of tax revenues.

It should not be surprising at all that conservatives are rushing for the exits, these places are on fire and progressive legislators are throwing Molotov cocktails for good measure. I’m only surprised by the speed and scale of the migration, the whole thing is happening so fast it makes your head spin.

My point is, the migration is very real. No one can deny anymore that it is happening. But what does it mean for the future of America?

As I have noted in previous articles, in my view the BEST case scenario we can possibly hope for as conservatives is a balkanization of the US-based on ideals and principles. According to the economic data and social upheaval I am seeing, I think there is little chance we can save the whole country in the short term. Instead, conservatives organizing together regionally is the best bet in stopping widespread unconstitutional changes to our laws and usurpation of our culture.

In rural areas in particular we enjoy far more freedom and the majority of people have no interest in abiding by lockdown restrictions. We ignore them. A friend of mine recently had family visit from California and they were astonished at how ‘normal’ daily life was in Montana. They said just being able to go to a restaurant and eat there or walk into a store without being forced to wear a mask was a strange feeling as if they were visiting a foreign nation.

This is saddening to me. The coronavirus is certainly not worth this loss of liberty.

I suspect that the conservative migration will lead to some interesting side-effects. First and foremost there will be continued attempts to stop it. Eventually, states like California will try to implement measures beyond tax punishment. They may even try to exploit the pandemic as a rationale for locking down state borders in the name of “protecting citizen health”. I would not be surprised if hard-left states actively try to physically stop residents from moving away.

As the economy continues to decline and stagflation strikes, likely very hard in 2021 regardless of who is in the White House (you can thank the Federal Reserve for that), price increases will eventually prevent Americans from being able to relocate anyway. But, for the next six months at least I think the migration will continue to grow.

The congregation of conservatives today is perhaps the first time in a long time that we have sought to build a unified front for preserving the American way of life, free from big government, free from bureaucracy, and free from socialist subversion. Without the migration, we have zero chance of achieving this, but there are some who will argue against it.

I have noticed that certain conservatives and moderates are claiming that by leaving places like California or New York the movement is “abandoning the fight” and exposing those regions to complete takeover. News Flash for these folks: You already lost those states. You lost that fight. They have been taken over. And, if you understand strategy in the slightest, you will wrap your heads around the need for a strategic withdrawal so that you can live to fight more winnable battles another day.

This mentality reminds me of the people that were arguing that conservatives should not start their own social media platforms “because the real fight is on Twitter and Facebook”. This is naive thinking. Those platforms are OWNED by the extreme left, and there is no one on these websites that will be convinced by your arguments no matter how reasonable or factual. It’s time to build alternatives that are freer and stop wasting our energies on lemmings that cannot be saved.

What I find most fascinating about the current migration is that it’s bringing together conservatives and moderates or “classical liberals” that have been alienated by modern social justice movements. In my opinion, most moderate liberals are actually conservatives or libertarians and they’re just not ready to admit it yet, but I’m glad to see these people working together.

The fight that is coming will require us to ally with people that do not necessarily share ALL our views, and that’s okay. The goal is to get to the truth, and to use what works best, and to maintain a set of shared cultural principles that value freedom. Americans aren’t relocating anymore out of convenience or economic incentives – it’s actually rather inconvenient and expensive to relocate these days. They aren’t moving due to climate or job availability or wages. They are moving because they have a shared desire to be free. It’s really that simple.

And, the sooner free peoples band together, the safer we will be from the statists and tyrants of the world. If that means the US is broken apart for a time in the process, then so be it. It’s better than having the entire country fall because rational people were isolated from each other.

2nd Amendment California guns home invasion Intelwars Self-Defense watch

Man shoots intruders, one of them fatally, after they shatter home’s window in middle of night

As gun sales spike amid a growing wave of violence in America’s streets over the past several months, one would assume that thoughtful, reflective criminals would be aware that the odds of targeting gun owners likely increase by the day.

And it would seem that a pair of southern California crooks simply hadn’t been reading the writing on the wall.

What went down?

The Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department said two suspects were trying to get into a home in Pico Rivera — about 20 minutes southeast of Los Angeles — around 1:20 a.m. Friday, KTTV-TV reported.

The resident woke up to the sound of shattering glass and saw one man inside the home, the station said, and the resident reportedly grabbed his handgun and shot the suspect.

Lt. Brad Hall told KCBS-TV that the resident shot the suspect in the chest.

The resident then went to the back patio, where he encountered the second suspect, KCBS reported, adding that the resident thought he saw the suspect make a move toward his waist.

Afraid the second suspect was grabbing for a gun, the resident fired again, striking the suspect, who died at the scene, Hall told KCBS.

Deputies who responded to the incident in the 8400 block of Serapis Avenue, east of Rosemead Boulevard, found the suspect lying dead in the home’s back yard, KTTV reported.

Image source: KTTV-TV video screenshot

The deceased suspect’s name was not released, KCBS said, adding that it’s unclear whether he was armed.

The first suspect fled the home, after which a woman getaway driver transported him to a hospital, where he was undergoing surgery, the station said. His condition is unknown, KCBS reported. KTTV said sheriff’s deputies arrested him at the the hospital.

Hall said sheriff’s deputies took the woman getaway driver into custody, KCBS reported. Other people were in a different part of the home when the shooting occurred, but Hall told the station they weren’t hurt.

What happened to the resident?

The resident wasn’t arrested, but KTTV said he was taken to the sheriff’s office for questioning. It’s unclear whether he will face any charges, KCBS reported.

KTTV said the incident is being investigated as a burglary or home invasion robbery.

The two suspects may be linked to a gang, Hall told KCBS. There was no word on whether the home was specifically targeted or if the break-in was random, the station added.

“We always see people coming in, coming out, on bicycles, a lot of people were just outside most of the times,” neighbor Raul Perez told KCBS.

California Coronavirus Intelwars Jail John macarthur Pastor service

California pastor says ‘bring it on’ after being threatened with jail time for holding in-person services

Evangelical Pastor John MacArthur says some time behind bars does not scare him, after officials threatened him with incarceration for continuing to hold in-person services at his church in violation of COVID-19 restrictions.

What are the details?

MacArthur, who leads Grace Community Church in Los Angeles County, told Fox News on Tuesday, “We received a letter with a threat that we could be fined or I could go to jail for a maximum of six months. Of course, my Biblical hero apart from the Lord Jesus Christ is the apostle Paul, and when he went into a town, he didn’t ask what the hotel was like, he asked what the jail was like because he knew that’s where he was gonna spend his time.”

“So I don’t mind being a little apostolic if they want to tuck me in jail,” he continued. “I’m open for a jail ministry. I’ve done a lot of other ministries and haven’t had the opportunity to do that one, so bring it on.”

According to The Daily Wire, MacArthur added:

“We believe that the governor, the county, the city, and the health department are going against the Constitution. And just to remove one obvious question, the rate of Covid in California is 1/100 of 1%. So 1/100 of 1% of 40 million people have COVID and that eliminates freedom to worship from the entire state.”

An earlier report from TheBlaze noted that Grace Community Church re-opened for in-person services in late July in defiance of Gov. Gavin Newsom’s (D) COVID-19 restrictions. Since then, Los Angeles County has sought to shut the church down with a restraining order and even terminated the church’s lease on a parking lot it had rented for the past 30 years.

Pastor MacCarthur recently told his congregation in a sermon:

“We’ve all been suspicious of the fact that we’ve been meeting together now for weeks and weeks and weeks, and we don’t know anyone who’s ill. Nobody in our congregation has ever been to the hospital with this. We know there are reasons for this that have nothing to do with the virus. There’s another virus loose in the world and it’s the virus of deception, and the one who is behind the virus of deception is the arch-deceiver, Satan himself. And it’s not a surprise to me that, in the midst of all this deception, the great effort that is going on is to shut down churches that preach the Gospel.”

Americans Bay Area California Commodities costs Electricity Emergency Preparedness Extra Money Federal Reserve Financial Food Headline News inflation Intelwars lockdown Middle Class money Money Creation Preparedness Struggling

Cost of Living Continues to Rise RAPIDLY As Americans Struggle to Get By

The Bureau of Labor Statistics just released new data that says the cost of living is going up as the main street economy crashes and the dollar loses its purchasing power. This also comes as more and more Americans continue to struggle to get by in the aftermath of the government’s reaction to the scamdemic.

The new numbers released are comparing the consumer price index, which is essentially the price of common things we pay for all averaged together, of 2019 to that of 2020. The number has gone up.

The Consumer Price Index for All Urban Consumers (CPI-U) increased 0.4 percent in August on a seasonally adjusted basis after rising 0.6 percent in July, the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics reported today. Over the last 12 months, the all items index increased 1.3 percent before seasonal adjustment. –BLS.gov

Since the Federal Reserve, the central banks, is continuing to bail out corporations and create money out of thin air, inflation and costs for basic necessities will continue to rise. Some areas of the economy are being hit harder than others too. The cost of food has jumped in the Bay Area of California, propelled by meat, poultry, and fish prices that have skyrocketed, joining soaring electricity costs, according to a report by Mercury News. Meat, fish, and poultry prices have soared a whopping 17.4 percent over the past 12 months ending in August in the Bay Area. This means that these prices are at a super-heated pace that’s 11 times greater than the region’s cost of living during the same one-year period.

Because the cost of living is going up as the economy is struggling for everyday folks, it’s important to make a plan. Preparedness should include financial emergencies. Even though the dollar is crashing, having a little extra money on hand to be able to pay 3-6 months’ worth of bills will help you get through tough times. All it would take to eliminate the middle class is one more lockdown.

11 Facts That Prove That The Apocalyptic Wildfires On The West Coast Are Unlike Anything We Have Ever Seen Before

At this hour, a thick blanket of smoke from the horrific wildfires in California, Oregon and Washington is covering much of the western portion of the country.  U.S. Senator Jeff Merkley of Oregon has used the word “apocalyptic” to describe the utter devastation that has been caused by these fires, and that is not an exaggeration whatsoever.  There are some small towns that have literally been wiped off the face of the map during the past week, and some of them may never be rebuilt.  This has already been a wildfire season like no other along the west coast, and we are just now entering the heart of the 2020 fire season.  It is very difficult to imagine another couple months of this, but that is potentially what we are facing.

By the time that it is over, nobody living on the west coast will ever forget the chaos that this wildfire season has caused.  Some of the largest fires have been burning for weeks, and all of the smoke is having a dramatic impact on large cities such as San Francisco

The cityscape resembles the surface of a distant planet, populated by a masked alien culture. The air, choked with blown ash, is difficult to breathe.

There is the Golden Gate Bridge, looming in the distance through a drift-smoke haze, and the Salesforce Tower, which against the blood-orange sky appears as a colossal spaceship in a doomsday film.

San Francisco, and much of California, has never been like this.

Yes, every year there are wildfires, but what we are watching this year is on an entirely different level.  The following are 11 facts that prove the apocalyptic wildfires in California, Oregon and Washington and unlike anything we have seen before…

#1 According to the National Interagency Fire Center, more than 30,000 firefighters are currently contending with 94 large fires that have burned more than 4.6 million acres in 12 western states.

#2 40 of those large fires have prompted evacuation orders, and many have been forced to flee “with just the clothes on their backs” because the fires have moved so rapidly.

#3 The August Complex Fire has already officially become the largest wildfire in the history of the state of California, and at this hour it continues to rage out of control.

#4 Five of the ten largest wildfires in California history have happened in 2020.

#5 In Oregon, 40,000 people have already been evacuated, and hundreds of thousands more have been told to prepare to potentially evacuate.

#6 On Saturday, the air quality index reading in Salem, Oregon was 512.  That measurement was “off the charts”, because the scale only goes up to 500.

#7 Prior to 2020, we had only witnessed a few “fire tornadoes” in all of U.S. history, but now they are occurring “every week or two”.

#8 According to the Washington Post, some wildfire plumes have risen “up to 10 miles high”, and that is definitely extremely unusual.

#9 About a week after a fire tornado hit the Huntington Lake area, some fires are still burning root systems underground “at more than 1,500 degrees”

A week later, Donnelly said Saturday that the Creek Fire continues to burn in the area, with some fires occurring underground and attacking the root system of trees at more than 1,500 degrees.

“Fire inspectors from the office of the State Fire Marshall stated that fire behavior in the Kennolyn area is the worst they had witnessed in their career,” Donnelly wrote in a post that was shared on social media, timestamped as 11 a.m. Saturday. “Unfortunately, it will be some time before it is safe to enter the burned areas.”

#10 Even though we still have quite a bit of time to go, this has already been the worst wildfire season in California’s history and the second worst wildfire season in Washington’s history.

#11 Sadly, the fire season still has another four months remaining, and there are at least seven weeks left in “prime fire season”.

Of course the list above simply cannot express the incredible amount of pain and suffering that these fires have caused for so many people.

When a reporter followed Betty Stevens of Phoenix, Oregon back to the spot where her home once stood, what they discovered was too horrible for words

Betty Stevens stumbled down the street that had until a few hours ago seemed so familiar, her feet crunching through ash and debris as she entered the smoking remains of her neighborhood. There were melted street signs. Trees burned down to stumps. Power lines across the road. And everywhere she turned, choking, acrid smoke.

Sobbing behind the face mask she normally wears for her job as a hospital respiratory therapist helping coronavirus patients, Stevens, 31, video recorded herself earlier this week as she stumbled through the neighborhood, raw emotion in her voice, sometimes unable to form words, moaning in obvious pain.

Could you imagine losing your home and everything inside of it?

Over the next several weeks, fires will continue to sweep across our western states and many more homes and buildings will likely be lost.

For many, it will be the final straw.  As I have discussed previously, large numbers of people have already moved away from the west coast, and there are others that are seriously considering doing so

Monica Gupta Mehta and her husband, an entrepreneur, have been through tech busts and booms, earthquakes, wildfire seasons and power outages. But it was not until the skies darkened and cast an unsettling orange light on their Palo Alto home earlier this week that they ever considered moving their family of five somewhere else.

“For the first time in 20-something years, the thought crossed our minds: Do we really want to live here?” said Mehta, who is starting an education tech company.

As a very small child, I spent several years on the west coast, and I will always have a great fondness for how it was in the old days.  But if you have read my new book, you already know how I feel about the west coast’s future.

There are very few areas on the entire globe that have been blessed with more natural beauty than the west coast of the United States.  Unfortunately, natural beauty is not everything.

Here in 2020, it has just been one thing after another, and the west coast has been hit harder than just about anywhere else.

California Gavin Newsom Intelwars LGBT Rape

California gov signs bill that will soften criminal penalty for LGBT adults who have sex with underage teens

California Gov. Gavin Newsom, a Democrat, signed a controversial bill into law on Friday that could soften the criminal punishment for LGBT adults who are convicted of sex crimes against underage teenagers.

According to KABC-TV, Newsom signed the bill without fanfare, likely due to the highly controversial nature of the legislation.

What is the background?

The bill — SB 145 — was introduced by state Sen. Scott Wiener (D), an openly gay man, and seeks to prevent LGBT adults who sodomize or perform oral sex with underage teenagers from being automatically placed on the California sex offender registry upon their criminal conviction.

As TheBlaze reported:

The legislation calls for a judge to use discretion on assigning an individual to the sex offender registry if their victim was between the ages of 14 to 17 and the age difference between the offender and the victim is less than 10 years.

Weiner claimed the bill “eliminates discrimination against LGBTQ youth in our criminal justice system.”

The bill was passed by the California Legislature in late August, with most Democrats supporting the legislation and Republicans opposing it, the San Fransisco Chronicle reported.

What was the reaction?

Responding to the bill becoming law, Weiner continued to claim the bill’s purpose is only about “ending discrimination.”

“Today, California took yet another step toward an equitable society,” Weiner said in a statement. “It’s appalling that in 2020, California continues to discriminate against LGBTQ people, by mandating that LGBTQ young people be placed on the sex offender registry in situations where straight people aren’t required to be placed on the registry. SB 145 simply ends that discrimination by treating LGBTQ young people the exact same way that straight young people have been treated since 1944.”

But not every Democratic lawmaker was thrilled about the bill.

State Rep. Lorena Gonzalez, a Democrat, said upon the bill’s passage, “I cannot in my mind as a mother understand how sex between a 24-year-old and a 14-year-old could ever be consensual, how it could ever not be a registrable offense. We should never give up on this idea that children should be in no way subject to a predator.”

Meanwhile, San Diego Mayor Kevin Faulconer, a Republican, slammed Newsom.

“As a parent I’m appalled that last night our governor signed a law maintaining a 24-year-old can have sex with a 14-year-old and it not be considered predatory,” Faulconer reacted. “An adult who commits ANY sex act on a minor 10 years younger must be registered a sex offender. Law must be changed.”

California death toll Intelwars oregon victims Washington wildfires

Death toll from West Coast wildfires reaches 7

At least seven people have lost their lives in the devastating wildfires that continue to rage in several Western U.S. states, with reports of victims coming from California, Oregon and Washington.

What are the details?

The first reported death was out of Washington on Wednesday, where a 1-year-old boy died and his parents were severely burned as the family fled wildfires in the northern part of the state. The mother and father were hospitalized for their injuries.

Three people have been killed by the fires in Oregon. The Oregonian reported that a 13-year-old boy, Wyatt Tofte, and his grandmother, Peggy Mosso, were the first fatalities in the state. CBS News reported that Wyatt fled as a fire approached his home on Tuesday night, and his body was later found inside a vehicle along with the remains of his dog. The boy’s mother was hospitalized and remains in critical condition.

The third victim in Oregon was found on Thursday in the southern part of the state from a fire that is now being investigated as arson. That person’s identity has not been made public.

Another three people were found dead in Butte County, California, according to Mercury News. One of them was discovered late Wednesday morning, and authorities believe the individual was overcome by flames after fleeing their vehicle. Another two victims were found together in a separate area, but they have not been identified positively according to Sheriff Kory Honea.

“Time and again we have seen how dangerous wildfires can be,” Honea said during a press conference. “So I ask that you please, please, please be prepared, maintain situational awareness and heed the warnings.”

The The New York Times noted that “California’s wildfire season is already the most severe in modern history, measured by acres burned.” The outlet reported, “More than 2.5 million acres of land have burned in the state this year, nearly 20 times what had burned at this time last year.”

The Associate Press reported that since mid-August in California, “fires have killed 12 people, destroyed more than 3,600 buildings, burned old growth redwoods, charred chaparral and forced evacuations in communities near the coast, in wine country north of San Francisco and along the Sierra Nevada.”

Tens of thousands of people have been ordered to evacuate their homes in recent days to escape the West Coast fires that have been called “unprecedented” as high winds fan the flames amid drought conditions.

California Gov. Gavin Newsom (D) expressed some cautious optimism on Thursday, saying a “We’re encouraged that the wind activity appears to be dying down. The rest of the week looks a little more favorable.”

10 Blackout-Proof Preps You Need To Get Through Extreme Weather Emergencies

This article was originally published by Tess Pennington at Ready Nutrition. 

Generally speaking, the American lifestyle is largely dependent upon the power grid. And when the grid goes down during the hottest times of the year, our eyes are opened to the need to have essential off-grid preps on hand to survive.

A sweltering heat wave that has enveloped most parts of California causing a surge of demand on the power grid. During the hottest part of the day on Friday, energy companies made the decision to start rolling blackouts – something that has not been done for 20 years.

The heat wave is ramping up this weekend, and some areas could reach triple-digit record highs, weather.com meteorologist Jonathan Belles said, adding that the temperatures are more typical of mid-summer than August.

An excessive heat warning was issued by the National Weather Service for Friday through Tuesday, and the combination of heat and wildfires prompted air quality warnings as well.

Ozone pollution in some areas reached levels Friday afternoon not seen in 10 years, the Los Angeles Times reported.

Gonzales said several different factors would play into whether the rolling blackouts continue.

“We’re dealing with weather, clouds, wildfires … these are quickly evolving situations, quickly changing,” she told the AP.

The situation will be evaluated on a day to day basis, she said.

The Step-By-Step Guide To Help You Through Any Disaster

Many believed rolling blackouts were a thing of the past, but all that changed Friday when the lights went out on 350,000 thousand homes. Many were caught off guard and felt PG&E had not fully communicated the likelihood of this occurring. But the worst is yet to come as more rolling blackouts are planned for the coming week. Excessive heat warnings are forecasted through Wednesday for Central Valley, Delta, foothills, and mountains southwestern of Shasta County to western Colusa County.

With scorching temperatures forecasted in many parts of the country, it is important to know that certain preparedness items can provide safety and protection when you are off the grid during the hottest part of the year.

Priorities During a Blackout
  1. Safety concerns – Heat-related deaths are the number 1 weather-related killer in the United States. Therefore, when a rolling blackout occurs, make sure you find the coolest part of the home for the family to be in. Set up battery-operated box fans in essential rooms, provide flashlights if needed, drink lots of fluids, and monitor those who may be at risk for heat injuries. Here are some tips to stay cool during a rolling blackout. Many preparedness experts suggest always having at least a half a tank in gas and this is a perfect example why. If rolling blackouts last longer than intended and you are feeling that your health is becoming affected, go to your car and sit in the air conditioning to cool off.
  2. Securing food supply – The next priority is protecting your food supply during a power disruption. Keep in mind the season, and the geographic locale where you reside with regards to your food supply and food shopping. During a rolling blackout, minimize the opening of refrigerators and freezers. While most of your perishable food supply will keep for at least 24 more hours in the refrigerator be prepared to do what you can to save your food supply if your refrigerator and freezer cannot hold cold temperatures. As an added measure, add a thermometer to the refrigerator to monitor the temperature. If the temperatures start increasing above a certain point, plan to move the food into the freezer. In an article on the subject, Jeremiah Johnson makes some great suggestions on using up your perishable food supply.
  3. Protecting appliances from power surges – Generators are great to have around – especially if you find yourself in an off-grid situation! Those that are dependent on power for medical equipment are especially vulnerable during power outages. Portable or permanently installed standby generators provide a temporary source of power during emergency power outages. However, if you do not know how to use these tools properly, they can be dangerous. When plugging in appliances to generators pay careful attention to wattage allowed. Follow these safety tips to stay safe.

10 Blackout-Proof Preps You Need

If you have not done so already, take inventory of your light preparedness supplies, checking to see if batteries work and that you have extra supplies of batteries in case the blackout lasts longer than intended. Last year, I went through a similar circumstance and highlighted the preparedness items used and even the mistakes I made in my preparedness plans that needed to be improved on. Here is a list of the 10 essential blackout-proof supplies I used to get through my off-grid emergencies.

  1. Generator with gasoline
  2. Surge protector
  3. 2 battery-powered lanterns (for the communal areas in the home)
  4. Flashlights (1 for each family member)
  5. Battery-powered headlamp
  6. 24 Cyalume light sticks
  7. An assortment of candles
  8. Solar-powered battery charger
  9. Extra batteries
  10. Battery-powered fans 

Other alternative light considerations could be solar garden lights which can be charged outdoors and then brought in the evening to use.  Oil lamps are another lighting alternative and an added benefit to this is you can recycle used cooking oil or use rendered fat to power these. Also consider having a supply of long-burning candles, and solar-powered flashlights.

I hope this helps some of you better prepare for off-grid events. Please check out The Prepper’s Blueprint and 52-Weeks to Preparedness for more information on preparing.

black bar California Censorship Conspiracy Fact and Theory DEW Dutchsinse Earthquakes energy beam Headline News Intelwars live live feed oregon Prepare proof Study Videos Youtube

Are Directed Energy Weapons Starting Fires In California and Oregon!?

A Directed Energy Weapon was caught on a live stream going right into a fire in California. Then there was another shown igniting a fire in Oregon. Now, there’s a black censorship line through the beam.  What is going on?!

YouTuber Dutchsinse has discovered something unbelievable while looking at the fires in the Western United States and studying the earthquakes occurring around the world. When it’s first noticed, Dutchsinse called it “some kind of ray or beam of some kind.”

If you have trouble seeing, it at first, adjust the brightness on your device. But it is an incredible find.

The video below is a shorter version and has been brightened so the DEW can be seen better.

After this, Dutchsinse discovered another DEW last night.  That’s at least two nights in a row. This one appears to come from the ocean and into a fire that has just started in Oregon.

After this was discovered, Dutchsinse noticed that someone decided to “censor” the beam by literally putting a black censorship bar right over the heat signature.

The energy beam which was beaming down has been BLACKED OUT ON PURPOSE— LOOK CLOSE wth????? To try to hide it… they tried to match the black of the background but.. because its a live feed grey black its impossible to perfectly match.. so now we have a black line hiding the original beam HAHAHAHAHAAH ? Look close you’ll see it! the black censorship line over it ! hahahahah epic fail. –Dutchsinse, YouTube Community post

Source: Dutchsinse, YouTube

The website used to discover this can be found here.

Is this just a coincidence this happened two nights in a row? Is this just a coincidence these beams go into the fires? Is it just a coincidence that there’s now a censor bar over the beams?

How many coincidences do we need?

If this is not a DEW, what the hell is it?

California Intelwars Investigation usps

Massive bags of mail mysteriously dumped in Southern California — and one dump was caught on camera

An investigation was launched last week after massive bags of unopened United States Postal Service mail and packages were discovered at two separate locations in Southern California.

What happened?

In the first incident last Thursday morning, police received a phone call alerting them that “possible stolen mail or whatever was dumped in an alleyway,” Glendale Police Sgt. Christian Hauptmann told the Los Angeles Times. Several hours later, police received a second phone call about more dumped mail.

Fortunately, the second incident was captured on surveillance cameras.

The footage, shared with KTLA-TV, shows a rental truck backing into the parking lot of a medical salon. A man then exits the truck and tosses large bags of mail and packages from inside the truck onto the ground.

“It happened early in the morning, 5:40, and it was a Budget rental — big truck — that backed up to the parking lot. And they’re like, slowly, one by one, they’re dropping the packages,” Lilia Serobian, one of the medical salon’s owners, told KTLA.

She said the truck left a “huge pile” of mail and that the truck was not connected to the USPS.

According to the Times, the second mail drop happened less than one mile from the first.

What did the USPS say?

USPS spokesperson Evelina Ramirez told the Times:

The U.S. Postal Inspection Service is the law enforcement, crime prevention and security arm of the Postal Service. In order to preserve the integrity of their investigations and to prevent fundamental unfairness to the subjects of those investigations, the U.S. Postal Inspection Service does not comment on any ongoing investigations.

What’s the background?

The mysterious mail drops come as the USPS has taken center stage in the national dialogue ahead of the November election.

Because of the coronavirus pandemic, Democrats have pushed for widespread mail-in voting. They have in turn made shoring up the security of the postal service a top priority, even going so far as to spread a conspiracy theory that President Donald Trump was actively dismantling the postal service to manipulate the election.

California Attorney General Xavier Becerra actually joined a lawsuit last week to stop routine operational changes at the USPS, furthering the conspiracy.

“The U.S. Postal Service is an American institution. For many, it’s a lifeline — their Social Security or paychecks, their medicine, their connection to loved ones. And for a vast, growing number, it’s their franchise to democracy,” Becerra said in a statement. “President Trump’s sabotage of the USPS is un-American. It’s an attack on free and fair elections and our right to vote. No matter who you support, your right to vote is sacred.”

California Coronavirus Intelwars lockdown Nancy Pelosi Salon san francisco Shutdown

Pelosi insists it isn’t her fault she violated coronavirus restrictions, actually says ‘I think that this salon owes me an apology’

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) insists she is not to blame after getting caught violating multiple San Francisco coronavirus restrictions by having her hair done in a shuttered salon earlier this week amid the city’s lockdown, saying she was “set up” by the salon and that they owe her an apology rather than the other way around.

What are the details?

Pelosi was hit with waves of criticism on Tuesday after Fox News reported that her assistant asked a stylist to provide hair services to the speaker in eSalon the day before — despite the establishment being closed for months just like all the other salons in the city to due coronavirus orders.

The outlet published security camera footage provided by the owner, Erica Kious, showing a mask-less Pelosi strolling through the salon, as well as text messages claiming Pelosi’s assistant made the request to a stylist who rents space from Kious at eSalon.

Kious called Pelosi’s actions a “slap in the face” considering the business owner hasn’t been able to open her salon in months while Pelosi “feels that she can just go and get her stuff done while no one else can go in, and I can’t work.”

But Pelosi insisted Wednesday that she is the one who was wronged in the incident, telling reporters during a press conference, “I take responsibility for trusting the word of the neighborhood salon that I’ve been to over the years many times. And that when they said ‘We’re able to accommodate people one person at a time’ and that we can set up that time, I trusted that. As it turns out, it was a set-up, so I take responsibility for falling for a set-up.”

“I think that this salon owes me an apology, for setting [me] up,” the speaker said.

According to the
San Francisco Chronicle:

As for the short clip showing her mask around her neck [Pelosi said]: “I just had my hair washed. I don’t wear a mask when I’m washing my hair. Do you wear a mask when you’re washing your hair? I always wear a mask … And that picture is when I just came out of the bowl.”

As The Hill pointed out, “San Francisco’s guidelines state that ‘any service that requires your customer to remove their face covering are not permitted at this time.'”

Salons in San Francisco were just allowed to reopen for business on Tuesday, and are still restricted to only providing services outdoors, Politico reported.

California Carla marinucci Coronavirus Intelwars Mainstream media Media Bias Nancy Pelosi Politico san francisco

Reporter questions whether security video of Nancy Pelosi at salon is legal. It doesn’t end well.

A California reporter triggered a tsunami of backlash on Tuesday after she seemingly excused House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s glaring hypocrisy for violating California’s COVID-19 restrictions — even painting Pelosi as an apparent victim.

What’s the background?

Pelosi was busted having her hair done at a San Francisco salon Monday afternoon despite the salon being shuttered by the coronavirus-related lockdown restrictions. Surveillance video released by the salon owner showed Pelosi walking around the salon with wet hair — and without a face mask.

“It was a slap in the face that she went in, you know, that she feels that she can just go and get her stuff done while no one else can go in, and I can’t work,” salon owner Erica Kious told Fox News.

What did the reporter say?

Carla Marinucci, a senior Politico reporter covering California, responded by suggesting whether the recording of Pelosi was legal.

“Have to ask upon seeing this: Is it legal in CA — a ‘two party consent’ state — to videotape someone in a private home or business without their consent?” she asked on Twitter.

What was the response to Marinucci?

She did not receive the answer she was seeking — but got much more than she bargained for, instead:

  • “It’s security cam footage. That this is your biggest question suggests you are a part of the problem. Anything to say about the woman who owns this salon, can’t open and can’t support her 2 children as a single mother having to endure this indignity?” one person said.
  • “Security camera catches Democrat. Journalist blames business,” one person mocked.
  • “If a criminal does not consent to being videotaped by a security camera located in a business during the commission of a crime then is the footage inadmissible in court?!?!” another person mocked.
  • “Here’s a ‘senior writer’ at @politico who is unaware that it’s legal to videotape someone breaking the law – even if it’s the Speaker of the House,” yet another person mocked.
  • “Seems like the kind of thing that you, as a California reporter, should’ve investigated the answer to before tweeting, rather than instinctively seeking to run interference for one of the most powerful politicians in the country,” another person said.
  • “This is why Pelosi thinks she can get away with anything. She breaks the law and a reporter goes after the source, not Pelosi,” another person responded.
  • “That’s definitely the story here. That god***n small business and their security cameras. Good journamalisming,” another person mocked.
