Texas Republicans Blew Off Electric Grid Vulnerability – Focused on More Important Thing$
Just days after senile usurper and Fake President Joe Biden signed an executive order to change the weather by canceling the Keystone XL pipeline, Texans found themselves buried in snow, without power, and about to freeze to death.
But are the Democrats right?
Did Joe Biden’s policies really change the weather?
If you don’t have power right now, you obviously don’t care to entertain these kinds of jokes.
In fact, you probably don’t care about the Covid thing anymore either. This is what it feels like to face a true problem. This is what an existential threat to your health and safety feels like, instead of the weird globalist agenda to get people to inject themselves with a fake cure for the cold virus that you’ve grown accustomed to.
The official state-approved narrative, one that is being repeated by midwits everywhere, is that the power outage had nothing to do with these Don Quixote windmill turbines all over the state freezing up.
Here is the graph from ERCOT in the days leading up to the failure. You can clearly see the insanely unstable wind power fell to basically zero right when we needed it. And everyone in Texas knows damn well that the wind was still blowing.
Rest assured that Greg Abbott is now decrying the mismanagement of entities under his government’s control as “unacceptable.”
However, all the people without electricity probably aren’t getting this message because they can’t turn on their electronics.
Of course, it goes without saying that if Democrats were in charge most people would have frozen to death by now. They have been pushing this “global warming” agenda whereby they claim carbon dioxide, a fundamental compound for life on earth, is suddenly some kind of pollutant.
You cannot be against “carbon emissions” without necessarily being anti-human, as the only way to achieve meaningful cuts in carbon output would be to eliminate huge numbers of people. Most people are already primed for this idea due to our terrible schools teaching about “overpopulation” as a part of the official state religion of earth worship.
Rafael Anchía, Chairman of the Mexican American Legislative Caucus, is one of these anti-human politicians obsessed with turning Texas into an Amish paradise. He authored some kind of resolution this session whereby he called for an investigation into how the weather works and how we can control the climate by driving our cars less.
WHEREAS, The climate is changing, and extreme weather events, rising average temperatures, wildfires, water scarcity, and flooding are becoming common;
Actually, flooding is becoming common in people’s houses from frozen pipes because we let people like Rafael make decisions. He’s on the Energy Resources Committee, by the way.
WHEREAS, The best available science indicates the importance of a rapid transition to net zero annual greenhouse gas emissions in the coming decades,
“Net zero annual greenhouse gas emissions” means massive human depopulation and living like the Amish, plus spending half your day planting trees to cover the carbon cost of the CO2 you exhaled during your daily subsistence farming.
”Oh, OK, so just vote Republican and we’ll be good?”
House Speaker Dade Phelan was recently quoted, speaking about the current energy crisis:
“We must cut through the finger-pointing and hear directly from stakeholders about the factors that contributed to generation staying down at a time when families needed it most,” Phelan said.
Phelan is making this statement because most of the finger pointing belongs at him.
Did you know there have been bills filed every session since 2015 to begin the process of hardening the Texas electric grid?
It’s true. Here is one from last session.
Let’s see who thought getting a handle on the electrical grid was worth caring about.
Tinderholt, Anderson, Cain, Lang, Middleton, Stickland (RIP), Swanson, Zedler.
These are the only State Reps who thought the electric grid was a serious issue.
From the bill:
The grid security council shall evaluate security vulnerabilities of the electric grid and strategies for securing the grid against:.. “weather threats”
What happened to this bill?
Final status is “Left pending in committee.”
Who was the chair of the committee?
Why, I’m so glad you asked.
It was reptilian crook and current Speaker of the House, Dade Phelan.
How is Dade’s neck of the woods doing in the midst of this disaster?
Abbott and the rest of the Texas Republicans legislature who blew off this issue are going to try and blame ERCOT. Abbott is saying these people should resign.
I never voted for anyone in ERCOT, did you?
What are we, the people of Texas supposed to about ERCOT?
Anyone could have looked up the fact that the chairman of ERCOT doesn’t even live in Texas, but Minnesota.
It’s also not top secret knowledge that Oncor is owned by Sempra Energy, headquartered out of California. The sale to this company was authorized under the purview of the Texas legislature.
Virtually every politician in Texas is in full panic mode today.
Now, suddenly, they’re concerned about the electric grid after they stood by for years as the establishment mocked people like patriot Senator Bob Hall, who has been trying to address these vulnerabilities.
Instead of listening to the patriots saying we should be prepared for all scenarios, our legislators were listening to the lobbyists of the energy companies.
At a quick glance, you see the energy sector’s special interests are spending millions and millions of dollars on lobbyists every year. There are 134 pages and I can’t count them all, but it seems to be somewhere between $40M – $100M per year on lobbyists. If you want to find the exact number the link is right there.
Why do we need lobbyists for a product that everyone needs?
So what have our legislators been working on instead?
Dade Phelan, instead of looking at serious issues, has instead been focusing on “diversity” and the genitals of his appointments serving on house committees as being some kind of grand achievement.
Phelan stressed the diversity of his choices. Five women were tapped to lead committees. Fourteen committee chairs are Black, Hispanic or Asian American. Eleven committee chairs are from rural areas and 24 are from urban areas.
Meanwhile, people are freezing to death.
Other Reps spent years focused on bizarre, fringe issues.
Jeff Leach spent his Fridays compulsively pandering to Black Lives Matter.
And of course, everyone’s getting paid big bucks to waste our time in Austin.
Here’s who got money from Oncor’s political action committee, one of the many special interest groups who pays off politicians to keep the status quo.
Abbott got a cool $100k from Oncor as well.
For a year now, all these Texas legislators have been telling us to worry about the fakest problem in human history, a coronavirus causing people to have mild flu symptoms. They’ve spent every waking second telling us to cover our face, to not visit friends and family, how close to stand next to one another, and how our entire lives must not revolve around germs.
Republicans blew off the hard problems, like securing a vulnerable electric grid, all because they didn’t want to rock the boat with the people writing massive checks to their re-election campaigns.
Probably other unscrupulous reasons as well.
