The U.S. power grid appears to have been hit with multiple power outages affecting San Francisco, New York and Los Angeles.
Officials report that business, traffic and day-to-day life has come to a standstill in San Francisco, reportedly the worst hit of the three major cities currently experiencing outages.
Power companies in all three regions have yet to elaborate on the cause, though a fire at a substation was the original reason given by San Francisco officials.
A series of subsequent power outages in Los Angeles, San Francisco, and New York City left commuters stranded and traffic backed up on Friday morning. Although the outages occurred around the same time, there is as of yet no evidence that they were connected by anything more than coincidence.
The first outage occurred at around 7:20 a.m. in New York, when the power went down at the 7th Avenue and 53rd Street subway station, which sent a shockwave of significant delays out from the hub and into the rest of the subway system. By 11:30 a.m. the city’s MTA confirmed that generators were running again in the station, although the New York subways were set to run delayed into the afternoon.
Later in the morning, power outages were reported in Los Angeles International Airport, as well as in several other areas around the city.
Via : InverseThe San Francisco Fire Department was responding to more than 100 calls for service in the Financial District and beyond, including 20 elevators with people stuck inside, but reported no immediate injuries. Everywhere, sirens blared as engines maneuvered along streets jammed with traffic.
Traffic lights were out at scores of intersections, and cars were backing up on downtown streets as drivers grew frustrated and honked at each other.

The cause of the outage has not yet been made clear, though given the current geo-political climate it is not out of the question to suggest a cyber attack could be to blame. It has also been suggested that the current outages could be the result of a secretive nuclear/EMP drill by the federal government.
As we have previously reported, the entire national power grid has been mapped by adversaries of the United States and it is believed that sleep trojans or malware may exist within the computer systems that maintain the grid.
In a 2016 report it was noted that our entire way of life has been left vulnerable to saboteurs who could cause cascading blackouts across the United States for days or weeks at a time:
It isn’t just EMPs and natural disaster that poses a threat to the grid, but there is also the potential for attacks on individual power substations in the vast network of decentralized and largely unguarded power grid chain. A U.S. government study established that there would be “major, extended blackouts if more than three key substations were destroyed.”
Whether by criminals, looters, terrorists, gangs or pranksters, it would take very little to bring down the present system, and there is currently very little the system can do to protect against this wide open threat.
Whether the current outages are the result of a targeted infrastructure cyber attack or simply a coincidence, most Americans think the impossible can’t happen, as The Prepper’s Blueprint author Tess Pennington highlights, a grid-down scenario won’t just be a minor inconvenience if it goes on for more than a day or two:
Consider, for a moment, how drastically your life would change without the continuous flow of energy the grid delivers. While manageable during a short-term disaster, losing access to the following critical elements of our just-in-time society would wreak havoc on the system.
- Challenges or shut downs of business commerce
- Breakdown of our basic infrastructure: communications, mass transportation, supply chains
- Inability to access money via atm machines
- Payroll service interruptions
- Interruptions in public facilities – schools, workplaces may close, and public gatherings.
- Inability to have access to clean drinking water

It is for this reason that we have long encouraged Americans to prepare for this potentially devastating scenario by considering emergency food reserves, clean water reserves and even home defense strategies in the event of a widespread outage.
The majority of Americans have about 3 days worth of food in their pantry.
Imagine for a moment what Day 4 might look like in any major city that goes dark.
This exclusive clip from American Blackout shows what an extended outage might look like:

But whose? As we well know the false flag effort is more Haglian dialectic set up to achive their predetermined end.
“Haglian dialectic”? I think you mean Hegelian dialectic.
I think hiding behind a closed profile leaves anyone’s comments questionable, even the spelling police.
My guess is he was trying to be helpful, not being pedantic. I need to recruit someone like that to proofread my comments. lol 😉
Thank goodness yesterday someone corrected me when I typed Sibel Edwards instead of Edmonds. I know her surname well, maybe my processor is getting worn out. Too many Circus Maximus productions for this girl.
Yeah, I have been a bit touchy lately with other commenters. Guess I have cranky old guy sundrome or something. I have been using this POS iPad and this “virtual” keyboard is crap and using a stilyst to bounce back and forth results in lots of miss pellinks 😉
I have a keyboard on it’s way from ebay for the iPad.
The latest and greatest stupidity of computer use combined with the horribly dense loads of each website with all their advertising, gif’s, etc. and the adolescent “gamers” need for more and more speed has put my perfectly good Mac laptops in the garbage heap. It is like the only cars allowed on a freeway must be sports cars. So I am left with this POS iPad designed by 20 year old’s.
You still do a remarkably good job with it and combine your 50 plus years of activism into great questions as newbie to internet forums, catching up with info and context as you go.
Sounds like Mellisa has been reading our posts in her vid on AP.
My keyboard arrived, sort of tiny for my taste but will get used to it. It is a used Targus from ebay for $10 plus about $7 shipping. Good deal to eliminate the stylist dance.
Absolutely this is more Hegelian sorcery, Joe.
Odds are, this is being done primarily to get the American public firmly behind the global smart grid system, identified by Patrick Wood as the “heart beat” of global Technocracy, i.e. world government. A secondary aim would be to get the public to demand spending trillions on new infrastructure projects, which are already tagged by Trump to get corporation and international investment claws into public infrastructure.
Around ten years ago, experts were warning the US grid system has not been properly maintained and upgraded, it has been falling into serious disrepair and is at risk for catastrophic failure if the problems aren’t quickly addressed. Now we know why.
Hey blue, good morning.
There is this theme of sorts in parts of the alternative community that says for some reason the controllers hsve to warn or announce in advance any of their nefarious plans. Now I don’t know if it is true but there certainly appears to be evidence of “something” going on when you look at 9/11 for instance.
The TV shows prior to 9/11 that “coincidentally” had the plane senario, folded dollar bills, etc. All very strange indeed. So this event along with the shooting up of a power substation, what, a year ago in CA, perhaps more setup?
IMO, this is not so much that scenario as it is mini shock doctrine social engineering, conditioning.
In the minds of the elites, Americans control far too many resources privately and though local & state control. This is precisely why the rancher standoffs erupted in Nevada and Oregon. Once the ranchers were stopped from using federally controlled land (Constitutionally, it should be state oversight for the benefit of citizens, as LaVoy Finicum eloquently expressed), it was turned over to a Chinese solar company (Nevada) with Harry Reid’s son profiting handsomely in the deal, and to a Russian uranium mining operation (Oregon). I don’t know if the latter was finalized or just proposed.
America has been this fat, slow, juicy looking prey grazing for decades in a big open field with every sort of predator available creeping towards it. Unable, through control and conditioning, to reccognize the threat we are being consumed with my fav point, the death of a thousand (in thus case) bites.
When the Feds murdered him it was just a continuation of the devouring of what can be argued for, the country with the greatest potential. I watched the leftist propaganda movie last night, Moscow on the Hudson with the late Robin Williams where the constant theme of “inclusion” is pushed as subtile as a Rhino in a tea room.
The population in general has no idea the profound depth what all of us discuss out here in blogoland. After I get my music up on youtube this weekend I think it may be time for me to start offering some articles of hope and change and stratagy to balance out the plethora of dark, fear baded stuff out here.
P.S. As a former psychology student, did you catch the horrifically dark image and the headline (“Fears”, ALL CAPS, etc.)? Some of these pics are over the top deliberate amygdala triggers. I wonder if they come from [Tavis]i-stock. (OK, bad pun, sorry – kinda funny though).
Yeah, the picture is reminiscent of the one shown Neo in the Matrix after taking the Red Pill. Might be reptillian brain triggers as well?
I am sure lots of wonderfully bright young artistic minds are being mis used by the controllers much like the isolated cubicles of any corporation with need to know doorways or the arms manufacturer’s whose workers have no idea of what “their” part relates to in final assembly.
There are no bad puns, just some better then udders.
Exactly, ‘reptillian’ brain triggers that cloud critical thinking and add weight to framing and memories formed in response to fear.
You are scaring me with that. :-))
Wonder what the link is to the common rag by lefties that they feel “offended?”
Victimhood and “social justice” have to be NLP. Justice implying a crime.
That kind of language and worse had to be behind Soros’ Black Lives Matters energized protests and the Women’s March. They have no idea they’re being used as pawns.
I was one for awhile in the 60’s when being a liberal was about fair treatment of others in wages, accessability (handicapped) and the such. When feminism was about being pro female not anti male. And BTW, I never saw any burn their bra demonsrations or knew of snyone who was spat upon returning from Nam. Those of us who had a grip on things understood the the guys were victims of the mind game. Some of Kissenger’s “cannon fodder.”
“Its satanic protocol to announce plans in advance…so adepts can read intentions” Manley P Hall …..essentially edicts squaring it with Lucifer to gain permission[sic] to to proceed with their transgressions
Well now, isn’t that special? ?
The irony of course is since there isn’t nor ever has been proof of Satan, or god, jesus, angels, etc. these turds hide their sociopathic malevolence in myth making up as many lies as bible thumpers.
Damn, when I was in Hollywood years sgo a friend of mine had told that she was friends and a student of Hall. At the time none of that stuff was in my grey matter Hard Drive so I just dud a head nod.
Search ej doyle on youtube just uploaded some of my music. Black screen with yellow lyrics. ?Yahoo.
I found them & they put me in a very retro-relaxed aesthetic mood of nostalgia for that beautiful time of ‘love-floating-in-the-air’ candle-lit coffee houses & deep conversations…Did you write the lyrics for the 2 black singers?(I can tell by their resonance compared to Anglo’s)…Much in the same genre of the 6 string acoustic guitar just like /as myself recollecting & having experienced the 1960’s as a teenager…altho these lyrics are timeless/eternal in scope applying equally to today as yesterday…(wait for your reply)
I wrote the words to every song, and all the one’s where I played alone I wrote everything. The women were both white. Suzie Benson is on the web. She is a five foot 110 lb white girl with a black woman’s voice 🙂 The other girl was 20 at the time, goregous brunette that sang with Daisy Dukes on and a open shirt :-0 The guys were all white. The sax player on a couple of songs was Arsenio Hall’s sax player on his TV show a cool black dude.
If you look at the beginning of each song it gives the creation date, not the recording date. The big production numbers were all hired guns or co writers from back in my Hollywood days.
Bob Dylan said in an interview that his best song writing days were behind him. I haven’t stopped. I’ve written well over 500. Since the beginning of the year I have easily written a dozen more, good stuff, different then my past. I have easily another fifty songs in various starts. I hurt my left wrist (chord making hand) moving plywood a month ago and it still hasn’t healed so my playing has been very limited. Starting to Jones on that.
While I have had some really sweet guitars in the past I’m using a $100 Fender with D’Adderio light guage on it. I’ve got a pristine 1970’s Fender 12 string on Craig’s list now.
I’m going to be laying low for a while. I’m not used to being so intensely focused on the news as I have been since last August when I signed on to Disqus. It is all too much for me. All I want to do is make music and ceremony (tribal stuff) and ride my motorcycle. I don’t know how much longer we all have in the insane matrix of madness and I want to get my fun in.
The best part of blogging has been meet you guys, blue, U308, Randall, etc. but for the most part I feel like my generous sharing of my ideas and knowledge is like the “pearls before swine” idea. You spend ten mins putting together significant ideas and 4 people up vote you and three or four call you names 🙁 Just not worth it anymore. I am going to do some writing for a couple of sites like RINF and IWB. Too much advertising shit at these other sites.
Stay in touch. Told blue if you want to use a back channel with me she has the numbers.
The dick-heads on this cointelpro toilet paper rag just moderated me again …as per usual…shameless metrosexual panty-waists with absolutely No backbone…be that as it may…perhaps wait for it to reappear…tomorrow … I’ll catch you on BLN & leave you another reply …check your email in a bit .cheers
I’ll resend on BLN link.
Joe, yes, it’s true! They must announce what they’re doing, it’s part of the freemasonic ritual of “cremation of care”, in fact, I’m sure you’ve heard of Bohemian Grove and their Cremation of Care ritual every year where they burn an effigy.They believe that if they warn us and we do nothing, they cannot be blamed and therefore are relieved of their guilt, or forgiven. But of course they’re maniacal psychopaths that manufacture consent from our silence, so there’s that, too 😉
Here’s a tell for you. A tell being a way to read a poker player’s chances based on body lingo, mannerism, voice etc..
“As we have previously reported, the entire national power grid has
been mapped by adversaries of the United States and it is believed that
sleep trojans or malware may exist within the computer systems that
maintain the grid.
In a 2016 report it was noted that our entire way of life has been left vulnerable to saboteurs who could cause cascading blackouts across the United States for days or weeks at a time”
I happen to know factually that 1. the U.S. military has long mapped and charted our own “grid” 2. the U.S. military will not stand for anything curtailing their communications, logistics, operations ergo no one can eff with the “grid” without that same military being keenly aware of it 3. if there is any efing around it will likely come from inside, “trojans” lovely brand of rubbers to cover up that being the case “Oh it was outsiders”.
All it takes is a few grains of common sense, a little critical thinking. 9 times out of 10 you can rely upon intuition & instinct to be spot on the mark, as well.
Why is the above a “tell”? It lays out a “groundwork” “see we told you back in this article …” “set the hook deep, reel ’em in”. It also points right back to another “hooking” tell. They’re “pushing” an idea far too damn hard. If X was the case, they would not need to “force” it, it simply would be objectively. With them “forcing it on people you can damn sure bet safely that the whole line they’re hawking to sell you is pure bullshit.
Hmmmm….., suspicious. My readings and observation has led me to conclude that this is another directed effort towards Americans to loosen fears with regards grid failures. Remember a few years back we were being force fed to accept the gay/lesbian lifestyles then bombarded news of school mass killings. The masters at the controls will have us ignore future grid failure until the big one hits. Remember president Obama stated not long ago we as American should have several days of emergency food stock. To be forewarned is only fair in their thinking.
Spot on. We are being conditioned.
One certainty is this incident is intended to manufacture consent for a nationally connected smart grid network, which will eventually connect to the global smart grid system already planned out.
That’s the plan, way to leap outside the box to the end-game agenda! Well done indeed.
I think there are many that can agree that the infrastructure in many places in the U.S. is in desperate need of attention. We need more funds to take care of the infrastructure here at home and less for the MIC globe trotting police force (the war machine).
Watch out for the public private partnerships and foreign investors that are already descending on Trump’s proposal for massive infrastructure projects. The result will be a greater loss of local and state control over public infrastructure after very long 50 year contracts are signed over to multinational corporations.
THIS is NAFTA on steroids. Recall when NAFTA went into effect and a community in California wanted to ban the industrial use of a carcinogen leaking into ground water supplies and a Canadian (or Mexican?) based corporation effectively blocked the legislative action by filing an international court lawsuit claiming the law would damage their profits.
This is insidious corporate driven loss of sovereignty sneaking in under the cover of free trade, creating US jobs, and more economic activity from foreign investment.
WHAT COULD POSSIBLY BE CONTRIVED & CONSTRUED AS BEING WORTHY OF MODERATION HERE BESIDES THE TRUTH? …AP NOW = AN OBSEQUIOUS ‘COINTELPRO’ SYCOPHANTIC ENDLESS ROLL OF TOILET PAPER (IMO)
Is this or was this under moderation, pending approval?
I don’t see any potential flag words.
neither do I!
Ukraine took our grid out and we were in the dark for months – on and off – generator sales were up to say the least but Russia finally got cable laid under the Avov Sea and things are normal now. I doubt if we hit the headlines since Crimea is NFG commies anyway. The USG will take their own out and blame Russia by end of summer. Or else Nibiru will – and the US will blame Russia LOL
A huge sunspot was announced by scientists the other day and warnings were made of the possibility of power outages. This may be Mother Nature’s doing.
What a ka winki dink? This crap always happens during a drill!
Two winters ago we had a transformer blow. It was minus 15 outside. Cold as hell inside even with the stove on. When the power did come, the surge cooked the wires to my furnace. When I update my post and tube electrical system, I put a 23,000 volt urge protector in.
This is a high activity of solar wind; the Southern Lights (Borealis Australis) can be seen in Auckland, and have been very bright over the last few nights.
It has been said that rubbing the victims face in the humiliation of the abuse and domination helps to deepen the helplessness syndrome.
