White House Lies On Blackouts Exposed

Rolling Outages Due To “Maxed Out” Grid, Not “Mechanical Failures” As Obama Communications Director Claimed

White House Lies On Blackouts Exposed 100211top2

We have become used to seeing politicians distort the truth, but when such lies are brazenly plastered all over the front page of the White House website, it really highlights how much contempt the government has for the intelligence of the American people.

When Obama Communications Director Dan Pfeiffer attacked our article blaiming the White House’s anti-energy policies for contributing to the severity of the rolling blackouts that have occurred over the last few weeks, he claimed that the outages had nothing to do with maxed-out grids and were in fact solely the result of “mechanical failures.”

This formed the foundation of Pfeiffer’s charge that our research was “unquestionably false,” and was used to dismiss our argument that the Obama administration’s strict enforcement of draconian EPA regulations that has led to new clean-burning coal-fired plants being mothballed and other existing ones being shut down, has in turn led to Texas and other states becoming energy-dependent, leading to shortages and blackouts.

Whether or not the White House lied comes down to whether the severity of the blackouts was made worse by maxed-out power grids or “mechanical failures”.

“The Electric Reliability Council of Texas, the agency that oversees the state’s power, says the energy grid is nearly maxed out,” reports WFAA this morning.

“The agency has warned consumers that if they don’t conserve power this morning, rolling blackouts will likely happen once again.”

“As people wake up in the morning, they power on the lights, turn on their hairdryers and other electronic equipment as they get ready for the day. That’s exactly what puts pressure on the already maxed out grid, ERCOT says.”

So there you have it – the severity blackouts is being worsened by maxed-out power grids, not “mechanical failures” as the White House claimed. While the freezing weather undoubtedly exascerbated the problem, it only highlighted the inherant flaw of not having enough back-up power to meet demand, the blame for which can be laid squarely at the door of the Obama White House.

Maxed-out power grids are why Texas is having to rely on countries like Mexico to meet its energy needs.

Maxed-out energy grids are a direct consequence of a shortage of new power plants to meet demand. Indeed, contrary to another of Pfeiffer’s falsehoods when he claimed that Texas was not subject to EPA restrictions, one of the delayed power plants that could have alleviated the energy shortage, the Las Brisas Energy Center, has been the subject of an EPA battle with Texas state authorities for the past three years.

A federal court ruling last month gave the EPA permission to proceed with greenhouse gas regulation in Texas, temporarily superseding Texas’ non-compliance with the new regulations which came into force on January 2. The White House’s claim that EPA regulations are not currently affecting Texas is a complete fabrication.

The Obama administration’s meddling in Texas’ energy policy, through the threat of enforcing new EPA restrictions, has directly led to desperately needed power plants not being built or existing ones being shut down.

This is all part of Obama’s publicly stated agenda to bankrupt the coal industry in the move towards a “green economy,” which has little to do with the environment and everything to do with hollowing out America’s industrial base so that the country may be more easily swallowed up by the “post-industrial revolution” that remains the goal of the global elite.

Support #altnews & keep Dark Politricks alive

Remember I told you over 5 years ago that they would be trying to shut down sites and YouTube channels that are not promoting the "Official" view. Well it's happening big time. Peoples Channels get no money from YouTube any more and Google is being fishy with their AdSense giving money for some clicks but not others. The time is here, it's not "Obama's Internet Cut Off Switch" it's "Trumps Sell Everyones Internet Dirty Laundry Garage Sale".

It's not just Google/YouTube defunding altenative chanels (mine was shut), but Facebook is also removing content, shutting pages, profiles and groups and removing funds from #altnews that way as well. I was recently kicked off FB and had a page "unpublished" with no reason given. If you don't know already all Facebooks Private Messages and Secret Groups are still analysed and checked for words related to drugs, sex, war etc against their own TOS. Personally IU know there are undercover Irish police moving from group to group cloning peoples accounts and getting people booted. Worse than that I know people in court at the moment for the content they had on their secret private group. Use Telegrams secret chat mode to chat on, or if you prefer if you need to or buy a dumb phone with nothing for the NSA to hack into if you are that paranoid.

So if your not supporting this site already which brings you news from the Left to the Right (really the same war mongering bollox) then I could do with some. Even if it's just £5 or tick the monthly subscription box it will be much appreciated. Read on to find out why/

Why?

Any support to keep this site would be appreciated. You could set up a monthly subscription for £2 like some people do or you could pay a one off donation as a gift.
I am not asking you to pay me for other people's articles, this is a clearing house as well as place to put my own views out into the world. I am asking for help to write more articles like my recent
false flag gas attack to get WWIII started in Syria, and Trump away from Putin. Hopefully a few missiles won't mean a WikiLeaks release of that infamous video Trump apparently made in a Russian bedroom with Prostitutes. Also please note that this article was written just an hour after the papers came out, and I always come back and update them.

If you want to read JUST my own articles then use the top menu I have written hundreds of articles for this site and I host numerous amounts of material that has seen me the victim of hacks, DOS plus I have been kicked off multiple hosting companies, free blogging sites, and I have even had threats to cease and desist from the US armed forces. Therefore I have to pay for my own server which is NOT cheap. The more people who read these article on this site the more it costs me so some support would be much appreciated.

I have backups of removed reports shown, then taken down after pressure, that show collusion between nations and the media. I have the full redacted 28/29 pages from the 9.11 commission on the site which seems to have been forgotten about as we help Saudi Arabia bomb Yemeni kids hiding in the rubble with white phosphorus, an illegal weaapon. One that the Israeli's even used when they bombed the UN compound in Gaza during Operation Cast Lead. We complain about Syrian troops (US Controlled ISIS) using chemical weapons to kill "beautiful babies". I suppose all those babies we kill in Iraq, Yemen, Somalia and Syria are just not beautiful enough for Trumps beautiful baby ratio. Plus we kill about 100 times as many as ISIS or the Syrian army have managed by a factor of about 1000 to 1.

I also have a backup of the FOX News series that looked into Israeli connections to 9.11. Obviously FOX removed that as soon as AIPAC, ADL and the rest of the Hasbra brigade protested.

I also have a copy of the the original Liberal Democrats Freedom Bill which was quickly and quietly removed from their site once they enacted and replaced with some watered down rubbish instead once they got into power. No change to police tactics, protesting or our unfair extradition treaty with the USA but we did get a stop to being clamped on private land instead of the mny great ideas in the original.

So ANY support to keep this site running would be much appreciated! I don't have much money after leaving my job and it is a choice between shutting the server or selling the domain or paying a lot of money just so I can show this material. Material like the FSB Bombings that put Putin in power or the Google no 1 spot when you search for protecting yourself from UK Police with "how to give a no comment interview". If you see any adverts that interest you then please visit them as it helps me without you even needing to give me any money. A few clicks per visit is all it takes to help keep the servers running and #altnews alive!

However if you don't want to use the very obvious and cost free ways (to you) to help the site and keep me writing for it then please consider making a small donation. Especially if you have a few quid sitting in your PayPal account doing nothing useful. Why not do a monthly subscription for less money instead. Will you really notice £5 a month?
