California Issues ‘Flex Alert’ to Combat Rolling Blackouts, Energy Plan Failing

California — under the illustrious leadership of Gov. Gavin Newsom — has asked its residents to avoid their air conditioners in the midst of a heat wave to prevent rolling blackouts, again.

Sounds like California is indeed the fifth largest economy…in the third world.

It’s time for Tomi Lahren’s Final Thoughts:

It’s hot this week in California — which can either be attributed to climate change OR summer — but if you Californians were planning on cranking up the AC like you live in a civilized first world country …well, think again!

The manager of California’s power grid has implemented another “flex alert” and for those of you who haven’t lived in the overpriced hellhole of California, that’s when the government asks residents not to use energy between 4 p.m. to 9 p.m. to prevent rolling blackouts.

California Orders “Flex Alert” to Combat Rolling Blackouts

Not only should residents avoid the AC, you should also avoid appliances such as the dishwasher or washing machine — really any heavy appliance is off limits though Gavin will almost certainly still be using his hair dryer before a night out at the French Laundry.

The powers that be that control the power, don’t want to overly strain the grid and cause a repeat of summer 2020 — not the riot season part they are fine with that — but the two consecutive nights in August of that year when rolling blackouts left hundreds of thousands in the dark.

Now look, the energy grid nationwide is not exactly great so I can’t fault only California for it — as much as I’d like to — but the fact residents in that high tax, high regulation state have to ration energy boggles my mind.

I thought California- with a budget surplus of almost $100 billion- was supposed to be so advanced isn’t that what Gavin is always bellowing from the rooftops?

California’s “Advanced” Energy Plan Failing Californians

Listen, I’m no power grid experiment nor am I a meteorologist but for as much grief as Gavin gives Florida and Ron DeSantis … I’m pretty sure residents of the Sunshine State aren’t told to shut their shades and swelter in the heat SANS HVAC to avoid a rolling blackout…just saying!

Californians, as much as I’d like to remind you, you’re paying way too much to live somewhere that offers way too little, I don’t really want anymore of you moving to Tennessee or any other red state for that matter so I’ll just say, happy heating.

  1. First off, the “budget surplus” is an accounting lie. Newsom FOR YEARS has included things like rainy day funds and pension funds as part of the general fund, even though that money is barred from use in the general fund by California’s Constitution. Hence why Newsom has consistently raised taxes by the billions every year he has been in office, while touting his fake “budget surplus.” But since he is the darling of the Democratic Party, nobody ever questions why taxes keep going up with this alleged massive budget surplus. Or how Newsom has so badly mismanaged “the 5th largest economy in the world.”

    Second, this clown somehow wants to ban the internal combustion engine when his current power grid can’t even handle a normal hot summer and fall (August and September are the hottest months in California). And that is with only 12.5% of the cars on the road in California being electric. Oh, but it will magically be better when ALL the cars are electric.

    Welcome to the progressive utopia of pipe dreams, lies, and failure.
