  1. Hope the state sinks into the Pacific…..good practice for your new green deal… maybe voting democrats to run your shithole state into the ground wasn't the best idea …ha?

  2. I wonder how close the (forced) blackout is from the borders, I wouldn't trust California or they will be shuffling people across the borders in the dark. Wouldn't surprise me.

  3. Just wait until looting starts and the police start collecting firearms door to door like Katrina. Of course they left the criminals alone.

  4. So when are Californians going to fire all State officials and select a good range of candidates across the political spectrum?
    Right now California can't manage homelessness or human waste in cities.
    Now California can't even manage reliable electricity.
    Managing electricity and waste are the two simplest goals any region has and yes administrators still can't do it.

  5. Welcome to the third world Cali!!! It took awhile but ya'll did it!! Make sure you keep your government lite so they plot your demise!!!

  6. ASK THE ILLEGALS TO HELP YOU … YOUR TAX MONEY WENT TO THEM …
    LUCKY YOU GUYS IN CALI BANNED ALL GUNS . SO THE CRIMINALS DONT HAVE THEM …

  7. So, yeah, leaving the power on MIGHT cause a fire… I'd move out of Cali so fast it'd make your head spin. Yet another reason to leave that horrific state.

  8. I wonder if there is a bunch of crimes happening there at night with no power for security purposes… to me this shows how dependent we are on Uncle Sam.

  9. What do people with oxygen machines do without power? Are they alerted ahead to get enough time to go to a place with power or stock up on tanks?
    Not my state, just curious.

  10. Why is no one talking about how pg&e is bankrupt and the real reason they shutdown power is not because of wildfires is to show intimidation towards people and forcing them ask the government for a bailout

  11. These idiots need to bury the lines in the ground.. Hundreds of times safer and easier to fix if needed… ALL electrical wiring should be underground…

  12. ha ha ha ha ha , knock me darn wiv a fevver, i'd have never guessed it could 'ave 'appened 'ere ov awl plaices in the land of the Californicators.

  13. Solar flare from the sun reach earth and hit the san Francisco earth crust and took out the power grid….. Any thoughts on how this happened???

  14. This is what happens when a corrupt California government blames a utility company for a natural disaster and sues it. Amazingly enough, money doesn't grow on trees. Since the utility can't legally raise rates, it goes into risk avoidance mode to save it from the predatory politicians who make a living by telling people corporations are ATMs. So, now poor Californians get their power cut. Rich Californians get to keep their power, because "fairness" and "equality".

    And for what? Locals report no wind. Just unnecessary power outage, planned in advance, and executed regardless of any attempt at sanity.

    Well done, Democrats. You've reduced the world's 8th largest economy to third world status!

  15. PG&E handled this terribly!! PG&E didn't provide local government and media with adequate and updated information, they didn't anticipate their website going down even their secondary website they made went down a few times, announced it out of nowhere at like 2 PM on Tuesday and was like at midnight we're cutting off power from so and so area.

  16. Berkeley is pitch black now my neighbor is Prepper so we
    Have plenty of power not so about the racists across the street which is changing mind on reality things happen for a reason "Judges states that " He's Able👐

  17. Gas prices just shot up 5 bucks per gal in Los Angeles!
    Now that's a great socialist progressive liberal town.
    Gas in my state is 2.10/gal.

  18. so I'm curious.. loss of power in an entire area?? Hospitals, grocery stores?? loss of life and food supplies from commercial or even residential areas?

  19. Keep electing those liberal tree huggers,you know why you rarely hear of a wildfire in the east?It's because the foresty dept regularly performs controlled burning of underbrush that does not harm the trees but actually makes them thrive.There is no fuel for a "wildfire".

  20. Time to take the toys away from incompetent and corrupt PG&E. California needs to confiscate all their assets and turn it into a public utility, so that honest, competent government employees can deliver reliable energy to California's hard-working citizens.

  21. atleast the big cities in CA get to keep the power on……………………………. makes you wonder who they really care about doesn't it

  22. This isn’t the utility’s fault. Every utility is governed by the state commission that sets the rates. This one doesn’t give them enough money to keep all the trees trimmed around the transformers. So the trees caught fire and burned down a bunch of homes. Then they blamed the fires on the company and pushed them into bankruptcy. If the utilities commission set the rates high enough to keep the trees trimmed and said this extra money better be used to trim the trees to prevent fires, you can bet they would be cutting trees like Paul Bunyon. When they need to sell stock again to improve their electric service, I hope they have their own money to buy it. Because no investor who has been stung by this will invest any money in California again.

  23. I don't hear the wind that is the reason for the outage. I didn't see the wind during daylight hours. WHERE IS THE WIND??? Seems like a lie to cover their own shortcomings. When will you wake up, California? Take a look at the increase in diseases 2, 3, and 4 times what they've been, and for one disease 16 times more cases than what it had been. Wake up California.

  24. Aren't there concerns with just killing the power to 800k people? Elderly, traffic, medical devices. . . I have not seen a story in the last few years that would even temp me to visit Cali. Screwed up. . .

  25. Make sure Nancy P has her lights! Let’s vote for her again since she shares our pain and is Dow with us little people!

  26. If you believe you are a sinner and have never been born again or have died off from pursuing Christ, please seek a quiet location and pour out your heart to Jesus Christ and admit your sins and that he is the only one that can give eternal life. If you are serious about repentance and want a new life he knows your heart and will send his spirit to live in you! The Holy Spirit. Ask Jesus to forgive you of your sins and baptize you with his Holy Spirit and to remember you the rest of your life! (Your prayer just needs to be from a repentive heart and doesn't have to be exactly as I stated).

    I hope you accept Jesus Christ as your Lord and savior, he is the only way to the Father and to Heaven! You can NEVER work your way to heaven it's only by the blood of Jesus. If you've been born again, seek God in prayer about your next steps but I know for certain he'd want you reading his word (the bible) and fellowshipping daily with him (prayer).

    God Bless for reading all this and I'll leave you with this:

    John 14 King James Version (KJV)

    1Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me.
    2 In my Father's house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you.
    3 And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also.
    4 And whither I go ye know, and the way ye know.
    5 Thomas saith unto him, Lord, we know not whither thou goest; and how can we know the way?
    6 Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.
    7 If ye had known me, ye should have known my Father also: and from henceforth ye know him, and have seen him.
    8 Philip saith unto him, Lord, show us the Father, and it sufficeth us.
    9 Jesus saith unto him, Have I been so long time with you, and yet hast thou not known me, Philip? he that hath seen me hath seen the Father; and how sayest thou then, Show us the Father?
    10 Believest thou not that I am in the Father, and the Father in me? the words that I speak unto you I speak not of myself: but the Father that dwelleth in me, he doeth the works.
    11 Believe me that I am in the Father, and the Father in me: or else believe me for the very works' sake.
    12 Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father.
    13 And whatsoever ye shall ask in my name, that will I do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son.
    14 If ye shall ask any thing in my name, I will do it.
    15 If ye love me, keep my commandments.
    16 And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you for ever;
    17 Even the Spirit of truth; whom the world cannot receive, because it seeth him not, neither knoweth him: but ye know him; for he dwelleth with you, and shall be in you.
    18 I will not leave you comfortless: I will come to you.
    19 Yet a little while, and the world seeth me no more; but ye see me: because I live, ye shall live also.
    20 At that day ye shall know that I am in my Father, and ye in me, and I in you.
    21 He that hath my commandments, and keepeth them, he it is that loveth me: and he that loveth me shall be loved of my Father, and I will love him, and will manifest myself to him.
    22 Judas saith unto him, not Iscariot, Lord, how is it that thou wilt manifest thyself unto us, and not unto the world?
    23 Jesus answered and said unto him, If a man love me, he will keep my words: and my Father will love him, and we will come unto him, and make our abode with him.
    24 He that loveth me not keepeth not my sayings: and the word which ye hear is not mine, but the Father's which sent me.
    25 These things have I spoken unto you, being yet present with you.
    26 But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you.
    27 Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.
    28 Ye have heard how I said unto you, I go away, and come again unto you. If ye loved me, ye would rejoice, because I said, I go unto the Father: for my Father is greater than I.
    29 And now I have told you before it come to pass, that, when it is come to pass, ye might believe.
    30 Hereafter I will not talk much with you: for the prince of this world cometh, and hath nothing in me.
    31 But that the world may know that I love the Father; and as the Father gave me commandment, even so I do. Arise, let us go hence.
