Authorities in California extended a “Flex Alert” telling residents to conserve energy, including not charging their electric vehicles, on Sunday afternoon and evening. The alert has been in effect for several days in the midst of a heat wave that is slated to last through Labor Day. The California Independent System Operator, the manager of the state’s power grid, issued the statewide Flex Alert from 4 to 9 p.m. Residents are urged to set their thermostats to 78 degrees Fahrenheit or higher, avoid using major appliances, avoid charging electric vehicles, and turning off unnecessary lights.


How many Dem EV owners will be switching their voter registrations to the Sane Party? And no, we didn’t vote for this any more than the rest of us voted for Biden. None of us deserves the tyranny dealt by the other party when it gains power ….

I doubt many pay any attention and those that have an e-car are already all in on the whole thing anyway. Until the power goes off few will make any changes to their power usage.

Maybe a "flex alert" should be placed on that dictat by the automotive-engineer geniuses in the California legislature for all-electric cars by 2035. Where are the new power plants to meet the demand for electricty? Electricity doesn't just come out of the wall, ya know.

California is going to be suffering power blackouts for years to come with or without EVs. State incompetence combined with the green fascists and overregulation has their grid hanging by a thread now.

The forced move to only electric vehicles by the Kalifornia Commiecrats will be a perfect storm. Now people still have their freedom and mobility but with only electric vehicles the state will tell you when you can drive, when you can charge and basically control your every movement. It's a communist's dream scenario.

Wouldn’t it be more ecologically friendly just to have a diktat forbidding the use of gasoline? Why bother to manufacture electric cars ? Skip that step and forbid travel by private vehicle (except for the Very Important Elite and their Pettit Bureaucrats).

Normal people can see the utter absurdity -- but Newsom, et al will just double down and triple down, citing this as proof that we need to do more to advance green energy. No matter how many times logic and cold hard facts slap them in the face, they just go on with their fantasy world.

Time to fire up some coal fired plants to provide the needed electricity. Coming to a town near you. Since bikers are verboten in the US, that leaves coal & natural gas as the obvious backups to keep the grid working uninterrupted. Then you have EV’s being charged using fosssil fuels. Ain’t the Gov smart? Why didn’t we think of this?

Dr. Anthony Fauci, White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre, and other top Biden administration officials who were resisting efforts to obtain their communications with Big Tech companies must hand over the records, a federal judge ruled on Sept. 6. U.S. District Judge Terry Doughty, a Trump appointee, ordered the government to quickly produce documents after it was sued by the attorneys general of Louisiana and Missouri over alleged collusion with Big Tech firms such as Facebook. The initial tranche of discovery, released on Aug. 31, revealed that more than 50 government officials across a dozen agencies were involved in applying pressure to social media companies to censor users.
Film Review: ‘My Son Hunter’: Director

Less than a minute after the start of the hotly anticipated “My Son Hunter,” director Robert Davi and screenwriter Brian Godawa include an 11-word text scroll (with tongue firmly in cheek) that both downsizes and heightens the expectations of what we’re about to see: “This is not a true story … except for all the facts.” By doing this, the filmmakers somewhat defuse what is sure to be an onslaught of negative reactions from the mainstream media, its minions, and the dozen or so people who still think Joe Biden is the greatest thing since sliced bread.

At a national level there is a unique policy priority that almost every politician, on both sides, will avoid discussing. At a national level a single policy priority determines all other national policy issues. That policy is the national economic policy. The national economic policy of a presidential candidate determines all other national policies that flow from the presidential candidate. The national economic policy impacts the obvious policies like energy and trade, and also determines the lesser obvious policies like regulation and even foreign policy. It is specifically because a candidate’s national economic outlook impacts all other issues, that most national politicians never talk about it.

It followed Johnson admitting it was a “mistake” to keep Chris Pincher on as a government whip despite sexual misconduct allegations against him.

Gorbachev has died, but the KGB that he nurtured and protected lives on under an ungrateful Vladimir Putin.
