With food shortages coming, it’s a smart move to order organic, cooked, freeze-dried chicken for long-term storage from Prepper Organics.
As California wrestles with how to meet the state’s demand for power while also reducing its reliance on fossil fuels, Governor Gavin Newsom has proposed keeping open California’s last nuclear plant for another five to ten years.
Diablo Canyon Power Plant provides nearly a tenth of California’s electrical power. The plant was scheduled to close by 2025.
Newsom’s draft proposal was released prior to a California Energy Commission meeting on the state’s energy needs. Under the proposal, the California Public Utilities Commission — the state’s utility regulator — would delay Diablo Canyon’s closure until sometime between 2030 and 2035.
The proposal includes a potential forgivable loan for plant operator Pacific Gas & Electric (PG&E) for up to $1.4 billion, reports the Associated Press . The loan would cover Diablo Canyon’s licensing costs.
PG&E is ready to keep the plant running. “We are proud of the role that DCPP plays in our state, and we stand ready to support should there be a change in state policy, to help ensure grid reliability for our customers and all Californians at the lowest possible cost,” the utility said in a statement .
According to Reuters , PG&E is also applying for “separate federal funds under a $6 billion U.S. Department of Energy program aimed at saving nuclear power plants” that are scheduled for closure.
Newsom’s proposal is seen by some as a reversal of a complex 2016 agreement to close the plant by 2025. Environmental groups depicted Newsom’s proposal as a “dangerous” betrayal of the 2016 pact, according to the AP .
“Legislators should reject it out of hand,” said a joint statement from Friends of the Earth, the Natural Resources Defense Council and Environment California. “The findings used to justify these extraordinary provisions include no citations to published studies by any California regulator or agency recommending a further […]
Will America-First News Outlets Make it to 2023?
Things are looking grim for conservative and populist news sites.
There’s something happening behind the scenes at several popular conservative news outlets. 2021 was bad, but 2022 is proving to be disastrous for news sites that aren’t “playing ball” with the corporate media narrative. It’s being said that advertisers are cracking down, forcing some of the biggest ad networks like Google and Yahoo to pull their inventory from conservative outlets. This has had two major effects. First, it has cooled most conservative outlets from discussing “taboo” topics like Pandemic Panic Theater, voter fraud, or The Great Reset. Second, it has isolated those ad networks that aren’t playing ball.
Certain topics are anathema for most ad networks. Speaking out against vaccines or vaccine mandates is a certain path to being demonetized. Highlighting voter fraud in the 2020 and future elections is another instant advertising death penalty. Throw in truthful stories about climate change hysteria, Critical Race Theory, and the border crisis and it’s easy to understand how difficult it is for America-First news outlets to spread the facts, share conservative opinions, and still pay the bills.
Without naming names, I have been told of several news outlets who have been forced to either consolidate with larger organizations or who have backed down on covering certain topics out of fear of being “canceled” by the ad networks. I get it. This is a business for many of us and it’s not very profitable. Those of us who do this for a living are often barely squeaking by, so loss of additional revenue can often mean being forced to make cuts. That means not being able to cover the topics properly. Its a Catch-22: Tell the truth and lose the money necessary to keep telling the truth, or avoid the truth and make enough money to survive. Those who have chosen survival simply aren’t able to spread the truth properly.
We will never avoid the truth. The Lord will provide if it is His will. Our job is simply to share the facts, spread the Gospel, and educate as many Americans as possible while exposing the forces of evil.
To those who have the means, we ask that you please donate. We have options available now, but there is no telling when those options will cancel us. We have our GivingFuel page. There have been many who have been canceled by PayPal, but for now it’s still an option. Your generosity is what keeps these sites running and allows us to get the truth to the masses. We’ve had great success in growing but we know we can do more with your assistance.
Thank you, and God Bless!
