07 Oct: XR protestor Paul Jukes hanging from Brisbane Story bridge.
Police were negotiating with a climate protester dangling from the Story Bridge on Tuesday morning. All lanes remained open to cars. The man was believed to be protesting as part of a week of large demonstrations and stunts planned by Extinction Rebellion. The protester, who an Extinction Rebellion member identified as Paul Jukes, has enough supplies to last him two days. Bronwen Levy, who came across the protest on her morning walk, said the recent action reminded her of the Vietnam moratorium, when young people took to Brisbane’s streets to protest the war. – Brisbane Times: Climate protester dangles off Story Bridge in Brisbane; SkyNews Australia: Climate protestor suspends himself from the Story Bridge.
09-12 Oct: PG&E Preemptive Climate Change Fires California Rolling Blackouts: Citizens Outage Outrage: From Learn and Prepare to Setting Fire to City Hall:
On Wednesday, October 9, around 12 AM PDT, PG&E began to shut off power to many regions, as a pre-emptive measure to help avoid wildfires caused by electric lines. PG&E warned the state for months of its impending action, set to commence when the combination of high autumn winds and dry conditions made the fires more likely to happen. The 2019 California power shutoff, officially known as the “Public Safety Power Shutoff”, was a massive preemptive power shutoff that occurred in 29 counties in Northern California from October 9 to 12, 2019, by Pacific Gas and Electric Company (PG&E) and authorized by the California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC). …. To avoid sparking wildfires during dry, windy weather conditions, Pacific Gas & Electric (PG&E), the state’s largest utility, shut off electrical service to some 738,000 customer accounts, representing up to 2 million people. It was a planned, deliberate blackout unprecedented in the history of the nation’s electrical system. There’s probably no pleasant way to do something like that, but still, PG&E did it very poorly. Residents had little warning, in some cases less than 24 hours. Nursing homes, emergency rooms, police stations, and fire stations scrambled for backup generators. People with powered medical equipment or refrigerated drugs scrambled to find care at understaffed community centers, and 1,370 public schools lost power; 400 of them sent 135,000 students home to parents scrambling to cover jobs they had no way to get to. Highways, roads, and intersections went dark without notice and caused traffic accidents. Food rotted in freezers, houses, and grocery stores. Government phone lines were overwhelmed. On top of everything else, PG&E’s website went down. As Elizaveta Malashenko of the California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC) put it to the New York Times: “It’s pretty much safe in saying, this did not go well.” Until more data comes in, it won’t be possible to know how much the blackouts cost the state, but Stanford’s Michael Wara, an expert on electricity policy in California, estimates the total will come in somewhere between $1.8 billion and $2.6 billion. If the rest of the country was vaguely aware that there were blackouts in California, what many don’t yet fully understand is how ugly it was and how pissed off people are. And above all, they don’t understand one of the most bonkers features of the whole situation: Everyone agrees it is going to happen again. Indeed, blackouts like last week’s are likely to be a feature of life in the state for years to come. Region 9 of FEMA, which covers California, called them the “new normal.” … Following the devastating 2007 Witch Fire in San Diego, which killed two people and destroyed 1,265 homes, San Diego Gas and Electric (SDG&E), the state’s third and smallest utility monopoly, first began the practice of deliberate power shutoffs, which have since gained the imprimatur of the state and going forward will be the new standard practice whenever wildfire conditions emerge. …… How do people feel about losing power? Oh, they were not pleased. Twitter was even more swollen with bile than usual, if you happened to stumble into #PGEshutoff or #PGEshutdown. Reporters had no trouble finding sources that wanted to piss on PG&E, and it looks like someone in the town of Maxwell (north of Sacramento) shot at utility workers, hitting a truck. Some anger is understandable. After all, PG&E funnelled money it might have spent on safety to investors. But it also suggests some baser instincts. Americans, especially, get heated when inconvenienced. The sporadic gas-price spikes of the 1970s helped set off seismic shifts in U.S. politics. It’s easy to imagine this tide of venom turning against renewable energy if it came with too many brownouts. Ideally, we’d use this experience to learn and prepare. We’re going to have to figure out better backup power systems than diesel generators for important infrastructure like tunnels and water supplies BART — the local commuter rail system figured out how to pull electricity from multiple parts of its system to keep moving (though it wasn’t perfect). Utilities and local governments are going to have to figure out how to make the electrical systems of the future reliable enough to keep people from losing their minds, setting fire to City Hall. Outage outrage is a thing. If only we could channel all that self-righteous anger back into the power lines. – Wikipedia: California 2019 Power Shutoff; Oilprice: Unprecedented Blackouts and $6 Gasoline: California’s Energy Crisis; Vox: California’s deliberate blackouts were outrageous and harmful.

17 Oct: New IRA says Brexit border infrastructure will be ‘legitimate target for attack’:
In an interview with Channel 4 News, the New IRA said it was committed to ‘armed actions’ against border infrastructure – and ‘the people who are manning them’. The New IRA has broken its long silence over Brexit, saying any border infrastructure would be a “legitimate target for attack”. In an interview with Channel 4 News – thought to be their first on-camera interview for decades – a masked spokesman for the proscribed group said: “The IRA is an army. And as an army we are committed to armed struggle for political and social change in Ireland.” “Bearing in mind any installation or aspects of British occupation within the Six Counties – be it at the border or elsewhere – any infrastructure would be a legitimate target for attack and armed actions against those infrastructures and against the people who are manning them.” The man added: “There’s been a border since 1921. It’s been resisted. It is being resisted. It will be resisted regardless of any deal formed around it.” – Channel 4 News: New IRA says border infrastructure would be ‘legitimate target for attack’; Post Civ: End:Civ Resist or Die.
17 Oct: Sammy the Bull Gravano breaks 20 year JFK Castallano assassinations silence:
Salvatore “Sammy the Bull” Gravano (born March 12, 1945) is a former underboss of the Gambino crime family. He is known as the man who helped bring down John Gotti, the family’s boss, by agreeing to testify against him and other mobsters in a deal in which he confessed to involvement in 19 murders. Originally a mobster for the Colombo crime family, and later for the Brooklyn faction of the Gambinos, Gravano was part of the group that murdered Gambino boss Paul Castellano in 1985. Gravano played a key role in planning and executing Castellano’s murder, along with John Gotti, Angelo Ruggiero, Frank DeCicco, and Joseph Armone. Five years after Castellano’s death, Gotti elevated Gravano to underboss, a position Gravano held at the time he became a government witness. At the time, Gravano was the highest-ranking member of the Five Families to break his blood oath and cooperate with the government, as well as the second confessed underboss of an American crime family to turn informer. His testimony drew a wave of Cosa Nostra members to also become government witnesses. With Neil Dellacroce’s death on December 2, 1985, the final constraint on a move by Gotti or Castellano against the other was removed. Gotti, enraged that Castellano chose not to attend his mentor’s wake, wasted little time in striking. Not suspecting the plot against him, Castellano invited DeCicco to a meeting on December 16, 1985, with fellow capos Thomas Gambino, James Failla, and Danny Marino at Sparks Steak House in Manhattan. The conspirators considered the restaurant a prime location for the hit because the area would be packed with bustling crowds of holiday shoppers, making it easier for the assassins to blend in and escape. The plans for the assassination were finalized on December 15, and the next afternoon, the conspirators met for a final time on the Lower East Side. At Gotti’s suggestion, the shooters wore long white trench coats and black fur Russian hats, which Gravano considered a “brilliant” idea. Gotti and Gravano arrived at the restaurant shortly before 5 o’clock and, after circling the block, parked their car across the intersection and within view of the entrance. Around 5:30, Gravano spotted Castellano’s Lincoln Town Car stopped at a nearby intersection and, via walkie talkie, alerted the team of hitmen stationed outside the restaurant of Castellano’s approach. Castellano’s driver, Thomas Bilotti, pulled the car up directly in front of the entrance. As Castellano and Bilotti exited the Lincoln, the roughly half dozen shooters moved in and opened fire, killing both men in a barrage of bullets. As the hat-and-trench-coat-adorned men slipped away into the night, Gotti calmly drove the car past the front of the restaurant to get a look at the scene. Looking down at Bilotti’s body from the passenger window, Gravano remarked, “He’s gone.” – Wikipedia: Sammy Gravano; Valuetainment: Sammy the Bull breaks silence after 20 years; Mafia’s understanding of Why they Killed Each Other; ABC: 16 Apr 1997: Sammy the Bull: Man who brought down John Gotti.

19 Oct: XR: Gail Bradbrook: I have lawful excuse for climate act of civil disobedience.
“So here’s the thing. The UN Convention on Human Rights Article 2 obliges the Government to take reasonable measures to safe guard the right to life, and it includes provision of accurate information regarding threat to life. The Public have a right to information and that was established in a case law in the Convention Institutions. Now The UK Government is breaking that convention. It is not giving us accurate information and it isn’t protecting life. It isn’t protecting British people”, Gail stated with her customary calm resolve as she referred to her notes. – XR: Gail Bradbrook: I have lawful excuse for an act of civil disobedience.
19 Oct: PM Johnson’s WiP Brexit deal fails to get Parliament approval.
In a historic Saturday session for UK parliament, the first since the Falklands war, today British lawmakers were supposed to vote on Boris Johnson’s Brexit deal which last week received approval from the EU, and which sent the pound soaring amid speculation that a Brexit deal was actually close to passing. Instead, in the latest embarrassment to Johnson, moments ago UK lawmakers instead voted to put off a decision on the Prime Minister’s deal, forcing him to ask the EU for another Brexit delay. The measure, also known, as the Letwin amendment, was proposed by Oliver Letwin, an MP who was booted out of the Conservative parliamentary party last month by Boris Johnson when he supported anti no-deal legislation known as the Benn Act. The amendment – which received the support of the Northern Irish DUP party in the last minute – called for the House to “withhold support” from Johnson’s plan until all of the legislation required to implement the bill is passed by Parliament as well. And so with DUP support, the measure passed 322 to 306 effectively freezing the Brexit process once again, as Johnson is now legally obliged to request a Brexit extension from the EU if he can’t pass his plan by 11 p.m. local time tonight (6 p.m. ET), which he can’t. – Zero Hedge: Chaos: In Latest Humiliation For PM Johnson, UK Parliament Votes To Delay Decision On Brexit Deal.

Imagine 30% of America unable to heat their houses and gasoline twenty dollars at the pump. Its running out and 90% of what is left is in the Middle East. This is a fight to the death.

Maybe get elected some two-bit congressman from nowhere, with the result that Russia or China can suddenly start having, at our expense, all the advantages we enjoy here? No, I tell you. No, sir! Corruption charges! Corruption? Corruption is government intrusion into market efficiencies in the form of regulations. That’s Milton Friedman. He got a goddamn Nobel Prize. We have laws against it precisely so we can get away with it. Corruption is our protection. Corruption keeps us safe and warm. Corruption is why you and I are prancing around in here instead of fighting over scraps of meat out in the streets. Corruption is why we win.

The modern toilet, the flush toilet is a good metaphor for the civilization we are living in. You crap into a pipe, you flush it away and you never see it, and you never have to deal with your own shit; and then you end up deep in it.

» McVeigh 2020: Return to Eden: EoP – End Civ – UN Resolution.
The breakup of the Soviet Union in the 1990’s created a major economic crisis in Cuba known as the special period. So we have from 1982 to 1983 a freefall of the economy of 34% of GDP, gross domestic product. When I tell you freefall of the economy, try to imagine an aeroplane suddenly lose their engines. It was really a crash. Cuba lost 80% of its export and import markets. Oil imports dropped by more than half, buses stopped running, factories closed, electricity blackouts were common and food was scarce. People almost starved. In reality when this all began it was a necessity. People had to start cultivating vegetables wherever they could. Over the next decade Cuba took drastic steps to find solutions. It is the first country to face the crisis that we will all face, the peak oil crisis. … Organic needs some time and some money to establish the system because when you get the soil the soil is so damaged and dead that you need to rebuild the soil.
