‘911’ System Offline, 1 Million Plus Without Power After Hurricane Ida Slams Gulf Coast

More than a million people are without power as Hurricane Ida battered New Orleans and the Louisiana coast on Sunday.

Ida was one of the strongest hurricanes on record, in terms of wind speed and pressure, to make landfall in Louisiana. The timing of landfall was on the 16th anniversary of Katrina, a Category 3 hurricane that swamped the Gulf Coast with torrential rains.

After making landfall early Sunday afternoon, Ida has since been downgraded to a tropical storm and was moving eight mph with the storm’s eye about 50 miles north-northeast of Baton Rouge. Winds have dramatically decreased and sustained around 60 mph.

Officials warned yesterday of “life-threatening” floods and significant storm surges across Louisiana and Mississippi. Sixteen states from Mississippi to New Jersey are under a flash flood advisory through the week.

LaPlace, Louisiana, recorded the highest rainfall of around 15 inches. Flash flood advisories remain in effect for the area.

So far, more than 1 million homes and businesses are without power and another 100,000 in Mississippi. It was reported that 200,000 were without power in New Orleans due to catastrophic damage to transmission lines for the metro area. 

New Orleans is also experiencing technical difficulties with its emergency communications network. 

“If you find yourself in an emergency, please go to your nearest fire station or approach your nearest officer,” the Orleans Parish Communication District announced via Twitter early Monday. “We will update you once this issue has been resolved.”

Ahead of Ida’s landfall, President Biden approved a federal disaster declaration for Louisiana to assist with recovery efforts. On Monday morning, the storm’s impact has yet to be fully assessed. The storm has been responsible for at least one death. 

On the energy front, oil explorers bracing for the storm have already halted more than 1.74 million barrels of daily crude production. Royal Dutch Shell Plc, BP Plc, and others closed platforms and evacuated crews last week.

Gasoline futures this morning soared above 4% on the prospects of refinery disruptions across Louisiana and surrounding states.

Oil reversed gains as it appears offshore rigs may have dodged the storm, and OPEC+ producers will host a meeting on Wednesday

“The market will be looking at the product stocks and the risks of onshore damage from Ida,” said Matt Stanley, a senior broker at Star Fuels in Dubai.

“Now that the storm has made landfall, it looks like the worst is past for the offshore platforms, and over the next couple of days, operators can look at getting those back up.”

Refiners, including Valero Energy Corp., shuttered 12% of its oil-processing capacity due to the storm.

Colonial Pipeline Co., the controller of the largest fuel network in the US, had to idle its fuel distribution system from Texas to the Northeast.

The storm also positively impacted natural gas futures which traded at levels not seen since 2018 as producers in the Gulf of Mexico have shut 93.8% of natgas output.

Statistically speaking, we should remind readers that the busiest part of the Atlantic hurricane season is already underway.

      Dr. Robert Craig, founder of Citizen Action is a complete fraud. Citizen Action authored the minsnomer The Affordable Care Act which was a free for all for the medical mafia, allowing free colonoscopies, mammograms, gynecology vistits, and prostate exams for everyone, without meeting a deductible, and no health care if someone actually gets sick or has an accident. Sorry, but I just cannot get excited about free colonoscopies, mammograms, gynecology visits, and free GMO bioweapons shots. You are going to have to do more than that to earn my vote! It really sounds like you are trying to keep me away from the polls with a platform like that, in complete honesty! 

      Citizen Action was also organizing union support for the lock downs, social distancing mandates, mask mandates, and Operation Warp Speed.

      Citizen Action sponsored Democratic candidates in all elections in Wisconsin, and of course taking the bait from them came with strings attached turning all that accepted the bait into Pinnochios for the medical mafia and union thugs.

      Dr. Robert Craig is stating that income tax must be raised because the billionaires net worth is increasing, but net worth is not the same thing as income, and even with increasing estate taxes, the wealthy use charitable trusts as loopholes and their heirs do not pay tax when they die because the money is in charitable trusts, like Bill Gates Gavi Foundation, and the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, which will be the world’s largest Nazi Eugenics Program that his med student daughter will over see and run. Gates said that he would give all of his money away to charity before he died, and he apparently intends to give it all away to his daughter, even though almost all of his wealth came from tax payer DoD grants, patents, bailouts, and Plunge Protection Team secret bailouts.

      These claims by Democrats to reduce billionaires wealth through increased taxation are down right fraud and mislead voters completely. They are laughing all the way to the bank. Of course Warren Buffet says to increase his income tax rate. It is a laugh and a half! The IRS won’t come and arrest Warren Buffet if he slips a few billion dollars over in a payment to the treasury or IRS,  It is pure PR bullshit. Nobody prevents Warren Buffet from donating money to the U.S. treasury or IRS! Talk is cheap Warren! Put your money where your mouth is! If you want to pay more in taxes, nobody is preventing you! Stop bullshitting! 

      If it is the billionaires money that Dr. Robert Craig and Citizen Action are after, none of their propsals will work, just like none of their healthcare proposals worked either. They know that though. They are shysters that are conning ignorant people and filling their heads with pipedreams. I wouldn’t be at all surprised if Diane Hendricks or Menard wrote the propsals for them, just like the medical mafia and big pharma ghost write the Affordable Care Act for Dr. Robert Craig. 

      Warren Buffet, Bill Gates, Mark Zuckerberg, and many others are guilty of treachery, deceit, treasury raiding, high crimes, and treason!
      Those individuals in particular have all used the system in a way that it was never intended to be used and is an abuse of the system. The fact that those who hold the purse strings and the ability to prevent them and punish them for fraud that were complicit accomplices, in which they are all guilty of all constitute breaches of the public trust by all involved. The never ending bail outs including by the Plunge Protection Team, the use of the infrastructure of the internet created by the DoD and paid for by tax payers, and the DoD patents involved in all of their operations demonstrate that those individuals are evil, destructive parasites that also conned people into believing that they were worthy of the public trust because they would donate all of their money to charity, but they created their own fake charities that keeps all of the money that they have down right extorted in their blood lines eternally. 

      They even created the scamdemic and are even killing us with the scamdemic to keep the spickets flowing into thier fake companies and fake charities! 

      Couldn’t the Ford Foundation pay the retirement benefits to its workers or the Carnegie Foundation or Mellon Foundation pay retirement benefits to retired steel workers? Where is the accountability? What is it exactly that you do other than advertise on PBS? Honestly? We have hundreds years old foundations, including The Kellog Foundation, The Rockefeller Foundation, and The Mellon Foundation, and now new ones with Bill and Melinda Gates, Mark Zuckerberg, and Warren Buffet. Most of these organizations are also in complete control of universities, education, health care, public policy, and foreign policy. Not for nothin’ but you have all done a lousy job! Now politicians have jumped on the gravy train band wagon, also breaching the public trust using elected and appointed office to raid the treasury and create eternal trust funds which Clintons and Bidens have both done, in addition to all living former presidents, including Trump. How many others in elected or appointed office are breaching the public trust in such a way that will allow their heirs to eternally control policy in totally unaccountable luxury from treasury raiding and pay for play scandalous activities? We do not even want them in charge while they are alive! Now they will effectiviely be in office for hundreds of years after they are dead too! If they truly had populist platforms, they would not require hundreds of millions of dollars for being elected to office, or the majority of their time in elected office spent on soliciting donations! It is because nearly all of all of their policies are so toxic and abhorant to the majority of the population that they require such obscene amounts of money just in order to get elected and to remain in office!

      No Honor Among Them No Respect Earned

      Wake Up Americans! You Are Surrounded by Cold Blooded Serial Killing Terrorists! I’m Not Talking About Other Countries! I Am Talking About InfraGard Including the Medical Mafia!

      No This Is Not A Bad Dream!

      How to spot a terrorist:

      It is really tricky. They may be dressed in suits or lab coats, or standing behind lecterns, or speaking or writing in the media, or by wearing badges, or jogging in the park, or walking their dog, or be walking with a stroller in the grocery store, or working for the state, local, or federal government. If they support the U.S. constitution, and abide by it, the odds that they are not a terrorist are much higher. They are typically authoritarians, and are frequently either Marxists or Fascists. They may refer to themselves as anti-fa, in the double speak tradition.

      The InfraTards are a threat to national security. They really do not give a damn about national security at all, which they demonstrated in Afghanistan. Twenty years is an extremely long time to stick with a failing strategy. The fact that they stuck with it regardless of it not serving any useful purpose for our nation proves that they were not serving our nation. They were serving themselves and enriching themselves and threatened national security both physically and economically. They are guilty of high crimes and treason. They still apply the same self-serving, treasonous methods that they did in Afghanistan. The scamdemic is one example of how much they are willing to harm national security for their own personal enrichment. What they have been doing to me and members of my family is another example. They are reckless heathens that are moral hazards. It must stop now! 

      The InfraTards are so mentally incompetent, evil, and corrupt that they would prefer tyranny, corruption, and war over liberty, justice, and peace because they are incapable of competing on a level playing field and have to try to rig everything in their favor. As sure as the karmic repercussions that they have faced from a twenty year murderous rampage, occupation, raoing, and pillaging in Afghanistan, the InfraTards karmic repercussions will be faced in America as well. It is inevitable, but America will not be great again for several generations, because, Americans are now so corrupt and incompetent overall, which they have proven with the scamdemic, cheering it all on, cheering on the lock downs, cheering on the social distancing, cheering on the mask mandates, cheering on the “vaccine” mandates. 
      Cheering on the travel bans. Cheering on the bail outs to the companies on Wall Street, Silicon Valley, and governmemts responsible for it all. It is total insanity, total incompetency, and total corruption, and that is more difficut to combat than anything else.

      Charity or Fraud?

      All living former presidents and the current president have 501c3 charitable trusts. So does Nancy Pelosi, Wisconsin Senator Ron Johnson, Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett, Former Wisconsin Senators Herb Kohl and Russ Feingold, Nikki Haley, and many more including Pat Buchanan, Ron Paul, and Paul Craig Roberts who are actively writing and it is obviously no secret that they are doing that since they write  regularly and it is on their websites. David Brock, Ron Unz, and Judd Legum also have 501c3s. Veterans Intelligence Professionals for Sanity is another. Citizen Action is another, and Citizen Action is definitely deliberately lying about the scamdemic, no ifs, ands, or buts about it, and so are many others. It is lying that is literally killing people, so it should not be taken lightly, and there is nothing charitable about that at all.

      This is a problem though. If it is propaganda, or merely the opinion of the writer, it cannot be considered information, and if they are deliberately lying, it defintely cannot be considered information in any legitimate context. If it is biased in that different measures are applied to supporting candidates it is reasonable to question if politicians are donating to them to propagandize for them, which cannot be misconstrued as charitable acts serving the public good. If politicians are donating to them, it should be disclosed to readers. The PACs are out of control! They are being abused! Their donors should be disclosed either way, because it may be on behalf of industry that they are saying what they are saying also, like it is with the think tank industry, which are also 501c3s.

      Does Bill Gates, Mark Zuckerberg, Warren Buffet, and the others know that the FBI could totally seize everything from their charities over fraud? They are high rollers. They have been on a winning streak for a few decades. Their luck may run out, which appears inevitable, since they destroyed the entire economy, the government is bound to seize everybit of it. It is only a matter of time, because with all of the corruption and incompetency, it will be impossible for any economic recovery. Warren may be dead by that time. That is what he is evidently betting on.

      Ida was not as bad as Katrina because it moved over the state faster, where Katrina sat and grinded for days over the N-O area. When Hurricane Irma hit FL on Sept 11 2017, it knocked out power for a week in my area for so many. I am 100% Off the Grid and using solar for 100% of my power and never had any down time. I have not had a single utility bill in over 6-1/2 years. do the math on that.

      Hint, To preserve your freezer meats, if you have any void space in your freezers, fill those void areas with containers of water which will freeze into solid ice. If the power grid crashes, that solid ice will help keep your food frozen for at least 3-4 more days. I have seen neighbors throw out entire freezers full of food because they are dumb and ignorant and lack all common sense of how to prepare.

        Are you in an area that is off the grid or are you in a city that allows you to be disconnected from the grid and supply you own?

        Where I live there isn’t much choice but a grid hookup even with a rooftop solar system that is connected to the grid. There is no battery storage in the system, and I’m not sure if that would work with the grid down even during the day.
