Editor’s Commentary: I held off on posting this article over the weekend because I thought (hoped?) it would be adjusted on Monday. By then, I reckoned, corporate media would catch up with alternative media and report this HUGE story that has tremendous implications. A terrorist attack on an important piece of America’s energy infrastructure should be big news, right?
It wasn’t. Nobody’s covering it. A Google News search for “Vegas” pops up concert information, a local shooting, and news about the Raiders. Only one story today even touched on the fact that a major terrorist attack that will take at least two years to fix took place on U.S. soil, which I’ll be discussing on today’s episode of The JD Rucker Show. So, here’s the article I should have posted over the weekend by Tyler Durden at Zero Hedge…
The US power grid is under attack as extremists shoot, sabotage, and vandalize electrical equipment at power stations. One of the highest-profile attacks was when two men used guns to paralyze a substation in Washington state on Christmas Day, leaving thousands without electricity. The incident made national news, but strangely enough, another attack last week on the Las Vegas power grid went unnoticed by the national press.
Mohammad Mesmarian, 34, rammed his car through the gate of a solar power generation plant outside Las Vegas on Wednesday and set his car on fire, intending to damage a massive transformer, 8 News Now reported.
“Employees at the plant said they found a car smoldering in a generator pit,” 8 News Now said, adding the Mega Solar Array facility provides power to 13 properties on the Las Vegas Strip, all belonging to MGM Resorts.
Investigators believe Mesmarian “siphoned gasoline from his car to put on wires at the transformer,” 8 News Now said, citing documents from investigators.
“Mesmarian clarified he burned the Toyota Camry,” police said. “Mesmarian said he burned the vehicle at a Tesla solar plant and did it ‘for the future.'”
Here’s security camera footage of Mesmarian lighting his car on fire next to a giant transformer.
8 News Now said Mesmarian caused “major damage,” estimating it could take two years to receive parts and fix the transformer. Luckily, the damaged unit wasn’t online at the time of the incident..
“Following an incident at the Mega Solar Array facility, on-site personnel immediately notified authorities and shut down the plant’s operations as a precaution in accordance with industry-standard safety protocols,” an Invenergy spokesperson said.
Mesmarian was arrested at a campground Thursday. He’s being charged with committing an act of terrorism, first-degree arson, third-degree arson, destroying or injuring real or personal property of another, and escape by a felony prisoner.
How Will You Cook If the Grid Goes Down This Winter? These Gosun Solar Ovens are marketed as great for camping, but we see them as potential life-savers during an extended gas/electric grid outage.
Why is the national press absent in reporting this terror incident on the power grid?
Perhaps the person involved doesn’t fit the extremist profile routinely touted by progressive and state media.
They’re Trying to Shut Us Down
Over the last several months, I’ve lost count of how many times the powers-that-be have tried to shut us down. They’ve sent hackers at us, forcing us to take extreme measures on web security. They sent attorneys after us, but thankfully we’re not easily intimidated by baseless accusations or threats. They’ve even gone so far as to make physical threats. Those can actually be a bit worrisome but Remington has me covered.
For us to continue to deliver the truth that Americans need to read and hear, we ask you, our amazing audience, for financial assistance. We have a Giving Fuel page to help us pay the bills. It’s brand new so don’t be discouraged by the lack of donations there. It’s a funny reality that the fewer the donations that have been made, the less likely people are willing to donate to it. One would think this is counterintuitive, but sometimes people are skeptical because they think that perhaps there’s a reason others haven’t been donating. In our situation, we’re just getting started so please don’t be shy if you have the means to help.
Thank you and God bless!
