October 9 Review...
What are the Real Causes & the Status of this Disturbing Situation with PG&E?

Where did this Hot Mess with PG&E Come From?

Let's Review the Recent Past to Find Out!

Originally Published December 6, 2018

Let's review PG&E's recent history of fires and political disaster relief (for PG&E) bought with millions of dollars of blood-money PG&E bribes to Brown & the Legislature, and a series of multi-million dollar slick corporate-media,"feel good," propaganda campaigns from PG&E telling us how, "good," PG&E is.

It looks like what they're (PGE & the Dims) good for is squeezing massive profits out of the energy grid by suppressing regulation and shorting the maintenance costs, that led to the fires, gassings, and explosions, ironically, causing PGE to squander even more their ill-gotten gains on the massive political bribes, (bribes that allowed the fire conditions to grow in the first place!), necessary to sheild them from fire, gassing, and explosion liabilities, (done), before finally imploding into bankruptcy, leaving the rate and tax payers of California holding the bag for the massive financial liabilities that PG&E's relentless and irresponsible pursuit of corrupt profits has left behind, in the Wake of the Financial and Physical Destruction that their greed-driven political corruption hath wrought.

Two Things we Gotta Fix
PG&E, & Their system of Open Greed-Driven Political Bribery perverting our system with clear corruption, which, in PG&E's case, allowed these greed-driven degradations of our power system that made these fires, and our other contemporary gassings and explosions, inevitable.

The truth of the matter is that PG&E, and all of our other corporate masters (all the big ones) are all spending millions on political bribes and propaganda, (to both political parties), to continue to assure themselves of billions in completely unearned profits, independent of who wins or loses any particular election.

Allowing industry to bribe politicians, and allowing politicians to accept these open bribes, must stop.


Original Articles


Two Articles:
Did Camp Fire Violate PGE Probation,
Was Camp Fire a State Crime?


1> Did Camp Fire Start because PGE Violated Their Criminal Probation?

2> Oh-Oh! Dim Attorney General Xavier Becerra Ordered to Investigate Major Dim Donor

The Bottom Line
PGE just one Monopoly in a system tainted by Corporate Political Corrution 
PGE and its energy industry allies’ political corruption has purchased the political clout to dominate both political parties, ‘though only bribing the Dems counts in California.



1> Did Camp Fire Start because PGE Violated Their Criminal Probation?

Judge Asks PGE First

Judge in San Bruno criminal case demands answers from PG&E on cause of Camp Fire,
Sac Bee, November 27, 2018.


“...Judge William Alsup in San Francisco told PG&E to explain whether “reckless operation or maintenance of PG&E power lines” started a wildfire — and whether that might constitute a violation of the terms of the utility’s probation.”

PGE: Corporate Frigging Criminal
“PG&E was found guilty in federal court of obstruction of justice and other charges in connection with the 2010 San Bruno disaster, which killed eight people and injured 58 others. At sentencing in January 2017, the utility was placed on five years’ probation, fined $3 million and ordered to perform thousands of hours of community service.”

“Alsup told the utility to provide “an accurate and complete statement of the role, if any, of PG&E in causing and reporting the recent Camp Fire in Butte County and all other wildfires in California” since PG&E was placed on probation in January 2017.”

"PG&E has disclosed to regulators that a transmission line, located near the spot where the Camp Fire ignited, experienced a problem a few minutes before the fire was reported early Nov. 8."

Last Year

“Cal Fire cited PG&E power lines and other equipment for causing at least 16 of the October 2017 wine country fires, which killed 44 people. ”


PG&E Liars: Profit is #1
PGE: “Nothing is more important than the safety of our customers, employees, contractors and the communities we serve.”

"PG&E has until Dec. 31 to submit written answers to the judge and federal probation officials."



The Cal Dem Party’s constant bribery by PGE make them an accessory before, during, and after the actual explosion. The Dem party should be held liable for taking bribes to mitigate every aspect of PGE’s legislation, regulation, and oversight, policies which have directly led to the megafires we are experiencing.

The Definition of Corruption
"A California Democrat"
The Dims are so openly corrupted, and so well protected by the corporate media... They cheat us so openly... meaning we must be a state dominated by cheaters and their corruptions...

But don't worry, California Democrats are Above Our Laws, so eveything's OK!

If they don't like a law they just, "nullify," it...





Judge Asks Paid Tool of PGE Next

Dim Attorney General Xavier Becerra

Federal judge asks California attorney general if PG&E committed state crime,
SF Chron, December 6, 2018.


“U.S. District Judge William Alsup asked the office of Attorney General Xavier Becerra to answer the extent to which any “reckless operation or maintenance of PG&E power lines would constitute a crime under California law.”

 Previous Crimes (not including bribery)
"Alsup is overseeing PG&E’s probation due to the 2010 San Bruno pipeline explosion, which killed eight people and destroyed 38 homes."

Earlier-Article Above
"On Nov. 27, he ordered PG&E to account for any role it played in sparking the recent Camp Fire"

Asking the Wolf; "How's the Henhouse?"
"In his latest filing Wednesday, Alsup asked Becerra’s office to respond by Dec. 31 — the same deadline the judge gave last week to PG&E, the U.S. attorney’s office and the independent monitor appointed to the utility in the wake of the San Bruno blast."

"...Alsup asked the office of Attorney General Xavier Becerra to answer the extent to which any “reckless operation or maintenance of PG&E power lines would constitute a crime under California law.”

Becerra: "Ah, Shit!"
"Becerra’s office did not immediately respond to a request for comment."


Bottom Line

PGE and its energy industry allies’ political corruption has purchased the political clout to dominate both political parties, ‘though only the Dems count in California. The Dems operate as a one-party state for corporate interests in California, much like the commies in China, but with an approach of, “one stop shopping,” for the corporations who really dominate California politics.

This reveals a deeper problem.

This bribery to The Dem Party in California has allowed PGE and California’s energy industry to effectively take over, not just the regulatory frameworks supposedly keeping them within safety standards, but also effectively take over the politicians and parties who create, as well as administer our state’s energy law and regulations.

PGE owns the Law in California.

Becerra does not want to bite the hand that feeds him and his party...

Our safety has been fundamentally compromised by this open and clear corruption that fuels and funds Dem-dominated politics, and more and more corruption, in California.
People have died as a result, and whole swaths of California destroyed.

A small price to pay for Corporate Dem dominance and PGE Corporate profits. This system of political bribery assures PGE of great private profits at vast public expense, while fueling the Democrat Political Machine, which is based on endless, massive, unrestricted, irresponsible population growth, which grows PGE profits.
A win-win-win situation for our political and corporate elites, and a big loss for Americans, our principals, our democracy, and our environment & ecology, let alone our most basic safety.

But it’s Worse than That
The Dims have advanced both offshoring all our manufacturing to filthy Mexico, China, and India, while at the same time importing millions of Dim-State Subsidized ultra cheap laborers, both of which have worked to concentrate the wealth of our State and Nation into the pockets of the Democrat’s corporate sponsors. Mission Accomplished. Our elite has a greater percentage of our Nation’s Wealth than their Robber Baron forefathers.

Massive, uncontrolled immigration matched to offshoring are the two Democratic Party Policies that have already changed, is changing our climate, and are the policies currently driving the radical climate changes that’ve dried out our forests in the first place, so that now their politically corrupted, “energy regulation,” failures could burn them to the ground.

How it Works
This bribery effectively allows our state energy suppliers to pile on profits by cutting the costs of maintenance and upkeep, wearing down the energy infrastructure to the point it becomes dangerous.
At that point PGE typically cries crocodile tears to their politically bribed and compromised Governor, PUC, and Legislature, who then allow them to rebuild their worn-out infrastructure at the ratepayer’s expense, so they can drain it of all possible profits, once again. Unless things go wrong. Terribly wrong.

Destruction Follows Corruption
In California, the energy industry (PGE) had a city blow up, a whole region of SoCal get gassed (Edison?), and now, for the past two years, have watched as our predatory, corrupted and corrupting energy company’s used-up equipment (see above) burns down vast swathes of California.

And Yet More Corruption
After which megafires, Gov Brown and California’s throughly corrupted Democrat legislature passed legislation allowing PGE to pass the costs of liability for the fires they caused onto California’s ratepayers. While the corporate press cheers them all on!

PGE’s Path to Profits
PGE’s path to profits first runs through political corruption of the Democrat Party, so it can run us through massive disasters and the graveyard, on their way to bank their corrupted blood-money profits.

The real crimes that created the environment conducive to blowing us up, gassing us, and torching us in megafires began when the bribes of our corporate elite overwhelmed and displaced the will, contributions, and general welfare of local citizens everywhere, not just in California, but across the whole country. Ever wonder, “Just when did the US turn into a corporate state?”

The Corporate State
This started a long time ago, in the 1880s, when the Robber Baron forefathers of the Corporate Fascist State bribed both parties into submission on a flood tide of greedy foreigners they surfed like a tidal wave.
This mass movement of legal immigrants in the 1880s allowed the Robber Barons to form a new aristocracy, an aristocracy based on institutionalized industrial power, a corporate elite, formed out of the millions of desperate and greedy foreigners they intentionally surged into the US, allowing the Robber Barons to access and dominate our Nation’s vast, untapped natural resources, while building a whole new type of political elite, that they themselves imported, funded and controlled.

We were scammed.

Empire of Desire
That’s when, in the 1880s, the Robber Baron’s desire for wealth, open greed, really, replaced our Constitutional principals as our country’s unifying, legitimizing, foundation.

New Objectives...
This is the point in time when our country transitioned from being able to tell the world it was based on defending citizens practicing a set of mutually-agreed self-restraining Political Ethics, to one reflecting its new role protecting unrestrained greed and desire, and those most successful at gathering its fruits.

This is when our rising corporate elite replaced American Ethics with, "Oppertunity."

That’s when our political institutions became nationally corrupted and controlled by economic interests with a trans-national reach, by the then new corporate elite. This is when the citizens of the US began working for the profits of our corporate masters, rather than for the preservation of our principals and our own, "profits," and our own general welfare. Now our, "work," is organized to gratify and satisify the desires for wealth and power of the corporate elite. Here, have a cigar, you can go far...

Since those sad times, our last Guilded Age, both political parties have been owned by corporate America, lock, stock, and barrel. The link between corporate elite funding and both political parties has never since been broken. Now, the link between the Corporate Elite and Politics must be broken, not just for our most fundamental safety, but to preserve the fundamental ideas and practices established in our Constitution and Bill of Rights that distinguish us as Americans, and therefore, we must act to restore our honor as Americans.

Forest Report: Asset-Stripped California

Serious Crimes
Our most effective action would be to recognize that what are now legal, open payments of political bribery by corporations to politicians and parties are serious crimes against our most fundamental rights as Americans, and start putting these corrupted, wretched people who’ve corrupted our polity in prison, for a very, very long time.

Let's have a "War" on Corruption and Cheaters
I suggest we start a domestic, “War on Political Corruption,” dedicated to ripping the corruption right out of both political parites.

We can redirect all our energies from our government’s untruthful and unfruitful, criminal, “wars,” against drugs, terror, and all the world’s “hitlers,” into a war against something that’s actually bad, something that actually causes most of the problems it pretends to fix.

Defeating Self-Created Devils
I have a deep feeling that once we cut the corporate domination out of politics, a lot of the problems their vile corruptions created and fed will disappear...like their drug lords and terror groups…

The Bottom Line
Good Will based on American Principals goes a lot further than Corporate Greed...

And, how many times do I have to tell you, that in the end, “cheaters never prosper, but bring everybody & everything down…?

Drain them of Irresponsible Profits

We cannot stop the destruction of our environment and weather until we stop the corruption that’s captured our government. We need one major reform, a reform that will lead to many other reforms, in every aspect of life our corrupted government has touched.

That would be completely Banning the Corporate Bribery that dominates every aspect of politics today. Only then would we approach having a system of policy formation that could reflect the interests of our average citizens, rather than the greed of the corporate elite it represents today.

Only then could we hope to stop the Corporate Growth Machine of Death that’s destroying our planet, its weather and climates, and eating our spirit.
