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.
Of President Trump’s impeachment, of course. The Dims and their bureaucrat allies haven’t given up since he declared for president. Despite the fact that, as usual, our multi-millionaire lifetime pols and their GS-whatever lackeys, were there first. They did it first.
“Never mind that they themselves were the originators and instigators of the current proximate cause — foreign meddling (in their cases Italy, Australia, the UK, and Ukraine that we know of so far) — it is Trump who must fall for this sin. They must protect their shallow bureaucratic lives at all costs, even if it means the dissolution of this democratic republic, this nation that we are supposed to love, even if it means civil war. Whatever happens, they will blame Donald Trump at the top of their Beltway lungs when they themselves are to blame.”
Because there was never any evidence of a crime by the president. Now the Dims and their lapdog media will battle to see the full Mueller report.
“You want disclosure? Me too. But let’s see all of it. Not just Mueller’s report. Let’s see everything: all of the memoranda relevant to the opening of the investigation, all of the testimony at closed hearings, all of the FISA-warrant applications, all of Rosenstein’s scope memo. (A year ago, I surmised that scope memo is redacted because it relies on the [Clinton and Dim supported] Steele dossier — as did the FISA-warrant application Rosenstein had approved just a few weeks earlier; anyone want to bet me on that?)”

Just to ring out the old year and ring in the new, you understand.
“Reporter: “Is the White House concerned as Congressman Adam Schiff has said, that so many of the questions point to obstruction of justice?”
“Sarah Sanders: ‘We here at the White House try never to be concerned with anything dealing with Adam Schiff.’”
And many more right cheer
The Fake News would have us believe that Trump’s pullout was not principled, a long-overdue battle with the permanent war. No, it was only a whim made after a phone conversation with the Turkish dictator. Their usual drama bullshit.
“The claim by Trump advisors that they were taken by surprise was indeed disingenuous. What happened last week was that Trump followed up on the clear policy he had laid down in April….
“Trump is now well aware that it is virtually impossible to carry out the foreign policy that he wants without advisors who are committed to the same objective…he must find people who have remained outside the system during the permanent war years while being highly critical of its whole ideology and culture…[then] the last two years of this term in office could decisively clip the wings of the bureaucrats and generals who have created the permanent war state we find ourselves in today.”

Anything to whack the Trumps. Four stories (so far) on FLOTUS’s red Xmas trees.
That’s the snooze Mediacrats for you. Anything but working. Anything but news.
