In California the electricity blackouts are planned in advance of fire season and mainly affect rural areas. In Australia they’re caused by over-reliance on wind and solar. With urban businesses forced to buy spendy diesel generators as backups in Oz.
Thank goodness we’re back to producing oil and gas under Trump after Bronco Bama’s flirtation with subsidizing wind and solar.

UPDATE: Only a state that’s neglected its electric grid needs to worry about it starting forest fires. But that’s what pols do, neglect the maintenance on what their predecessors created while seeking trendy alternatives, whether they work or not. That’s why Amtrak sleeping cars are shabby and even DC Metro is falling apart.
“It’s easy to focus just on Omar (actually Ilhan Nur Said Elmi) and a handful of other anti-American politicians, but they’re not the main problem. The real cause for concern is that we admitted millions of third-world immigrants who find Omar’s message attractive. They and their descendants will disproportionately vote for Omar and her Squad-mates…” commenter Festivite at Instapundit
Yep. Bronco’s chickens are coming home to roost. Won’t he be proud.
In a way he’s very sad, a not-very-good one-term prez Mr. Peanut turned nutcase whose anti-Semitism finally got the best of him. Hamas-backer, anti-Israel book writer (over which his advisory group at the Carter Foundation all resigned) and now calling President Trump illegitimate because the Russians interfered with the election.
Only good thing for Jimmah is that he’s fallen to second-place in the worst president sweepstakes, overwhelmed by Baby Barry, a crook and a traitor, giving billions in cash to terrorist-loving Iran.
UPDATE: Trump says Carter “was a nice man” but a terrible president. Nice man. Was.
Pedo Biden, Crazy Bernie and other Dims claim Trump’s promises to the working class were a fraud. Backed by the Mediacrats, of course. The data show otherwise.
“The data show that the economy created 1.2 million goods-producing jobs since Trump took office. That’s more than twice as many as were created in Obama’s last 27 months in office (455,000).”
Bronco’s Director of National Intelligence James Clapper confesses to CNN:
“If it weren’t for President Obama, we might not have done the intelligence community assessment that we did that set off a whole sequence of events which are still unfolding today, notably, special counsel Mueller’s investigation.
“President Obama is responsible for that, and it was he who tasked us to do that intelligence community assessment in the first place.”
Well, that clears that up. Trump has Bronco to thank for 2+ years of harassment.

“Barack Obama is desperately trying to rewrite his presidential legacy for the history books. There are probably more facts in the Harry Potter novels than there are in any assessment Obama has given about his presidency. He’s counting on the masses to forget the facts, because he knows the media and academia are on his side — and he’s a far better liar than Jussie Smollett.”
Much smoother, because he knows he won’t be contradicted by his side.
UPDATE: Suddenly he is contradicted by his side, the anti-Jew Muslim Dim Ilhan Omar calls him out for “a pretty face” that got away “with murder.” Whoa. That’s what happens to apostates.
