Millions in California Lose Power as State Infrastructure Approaches Third World Status

California’s government can’t even keep the lights on for almost a million of its citizens.

Nearly a million people in Northern California lost power to their homes on Wednesday after the state’s largest electrical utility turned off service hoping to avoid liability for a potential wildfire.

800,000 people were left in the dark after Pacific Gas and Electric intentionally turned off service in advance of hard and dry winds. The company was hoping to avoid being held liable for more devastating wildfires after being forced into bankruptcy as a result of previous electrical wildfires, an occurrence some blame on the company’s refusal to invest in upgraded infrastructure.

The state’s Governor, Gavin Newsom, refused to take any responsibility in typical fashion when responding to outrage over the power outages on Friday. He blamed PG&E, claiming the bankrupt company’s greed motivated the intentional shutoff.

In any case, the system is clearly failing; and the elites who rule the nation’s most economically unequal state don’t appear to have any solution ready to go.

Power was mostly restored by Friday, but 84,000 people were still without power as of the beginning of the weekend.

Reports indicate that one man who was dependent on an oxygen system at home died as a result of the blackouts. Robert Mardis was found dead by El Dorado County Sheriff’s Deputies after a 911 call when his oxygen machine shut down.

California’s infrastructure has shown its weakness in recent years, resulting in blackouts that some have compared to the poor state of electrical infrastructure in third world countries.

In other news, California is suffering from massive price-gouging from gas companies, costing the state’s motorists twice as much to fuel their cars as citizens of other states.

Sadly, it appears the progressive utopia envisioned by the state’s political elite is increasingly resembling a tragic nightmare for the ordinary, everyday working-class citizens of the once-Golden State.

Heroic Michigan Barber Karl Manke Continues to Cut Hair Despite Court Order Forcing Him to Close

Manke refuses to bow to the state.

Owosso, Mich. barber Karl Manke refuses to bow to the state, and he is operating his barber shop in direct contradiction to a court order mandating that he shut down.

Manke was still open for business on Tuesday, despite the fact that goons from Attorney General Dana Nessel’s office showed up at his barber shop the day prior to tell him he was violating the order.

“Both you guys look like you need a haircut,” Manke said he told the agents from the attorney general’s office.

While Manke was discussing his visit with Nessel’s goons, an individual in the barber shop suggested that he should offer to cut Nessel’s hair. Manke then mentioned that some of his supporters were sending letters with their own hair in it to show their dismay with Nessel and her boss Gov. Gretchen Whitmer.

“I don’t know how many of my clients have loaded up hair and sent it to the governor,” Manke said.

Shiawassee County Circuit Judge Matthew Stewart issued an order on Friday, which stated that Manke’s barber shop “shall be locked and closed.” His attorney, David Kallman, has requested that the state Supreme Court intervene on behalf of his client.

The Safe Salons for Michigan coalition claims that this is the only state in which salons remain completely closed, as Whitmer arbitrarily punishes barbers and hair stylists out of spite.

“It’s a bunch of crap. Really, it is,” Manke stated about Whitmer’s edicts, which he maintains are unconstitutional.

“Like all governments, they’ll do something knowing that it’s probably illegal but if they tie it up in the court system, then they can drag it on and do what they want to do,” he added.

Big League Politics has reported on Manke’s stand, which has galvanized barbers from across the state to flout Whitmer’s senseless restrictions:

The Michigan State Police (MSP) issued $500 fines for “disorderly” behavior to barbers who participated in Operation Haircut, a rally against arbitrary quarantine edicts issued by Gov. Gretchen Whitmer.

One of the barbers targeted by police is Sarah Huff, the 29-year-old owner of the Ardor + Grit salon in Holland, Mich. She received a citation for being a “disorderly person” for cutting hair outside of the Capitol on Wednesday.

Huff is following in the footsteps of heroic barber Karl Manke and opening up her salon without permission from the state.

“My next step is opening up my Salon. I did open up last Friday. I took a couple days to think about what I was going to do and try to rebuild my confidence and get back to work. So I am going to back to work on Friday, and then I will stay open,” she said.

Thus far, Huff has received no flak from the city of Holland or the state of Michigan for opening her salon against Whitmer’s orders. She does anticipate that some sanctions will come eventually, but she is not deterred from making her stand despite the push back against her.

“I would 100 percent do it again,” Huff said.

Civil disobedience is rising against lockdown tyranny, as they have shown the proper way to push back against tyranny. The looting and rioting savages in the street demanding handouts, on the other hand, are disgracing America and all the nation stands for.
