Blackouts Hit LA, New York, San Francisco – Was It Cyberattack?


Friday, April 21, 2017 – The U.S. power grid appears to have been hit with multiple power outages simultaneously affecting San Francisco, New York and Los Angeles.

There is no official word on what caused the simultaneous blackouts to three of America’s biggest cities.

The official word is that it’s all a coincidence they occurred at the same time.


Many wonder if it’s a cyberattack by our nation’s enemies …

Apparently, the government is also running something called “Operation Gotham Shield” – which is leading many to believe these blackouts may have been a part of the government led drill/false flag of some sort …

Power Blackouts Hit LA, New York, San Francisco

Power outages hit Los Angeles, New York and San Francisco, leaving commuters stranded and traffic backed up Friday.

About 90,000 customers were affected in San Francisco (the worse hit from what I’ve read).

While the outages occurred simultaneously — as of yet — there is no evidence they were connected or coordinated.

The picture below from Pacific Gas & Electric Company (PG&E) shows the outages:

The outages seemed to have occurred quickly and in succession.

As of yet, there’s not evidence as to why they happened this way.

Some people suspect a potential cyberattack or even government drill/false flag.

New York Hit First At 7:20am …

The first outage occurred at around 7:20am in New York when the power went down at 7th Avenue and 53rd Street subway station

This picture, to me, is particularly horrifying:

It took me an hour and 20 mins to go one stop, give up, find my way out of this mob, then walk back home @MTA,” wrote Liz Baker on Twitter.

The mobs of people stuck underground …

That’s not some place I want to be.

The utility company, Con Edison, said one of its electric lines triggered the outage.

Los Angeles Was Next …

Next hit was LA, but it didn’t appear to be as widespread as in San Francisco.

Most reports are just of the Los Angeles International Airport, as well as in several other areas around the city.

San Francisco Was The Worst Hit – Blackout Widespread …

Los Angeles International Airport, as well as in several other areas around the city.

PGE officials named a substation fire as the primary cause of the outage.

Residents called it “surreal” …

The San Francisco Fire Department was responding to more than 100 calls for service in the Financial District and beyond, including 20 elevators with people stuck inside, but reported no immediate injuries. Everywhere, sirens blared as engines maneuvered along streets jammed with traffic.

This is actually a common occurrence and something I would not have known was so common until I read Ted Koppel’s book “LIGHTS OUT: A Cyberattack, A Nation Unprepared, Surviving the Aftermath” — although it makes total sense when you think about it — during a power outage.

In the tweet below, you’ll see someone stuck in an elevator:

Cyber Attack Feared As The Cause Of Multiple City Power Grid Failures

SHTFPlan writes, ” …The cause of the outage has not yet been made clear, though given the current geo-political climate it is not out of the question to suggest a cyber attack could be to blame.”

And that doesn’t sound very far off.

Cyberattacks can be launched from anywhere in the world using nothing more than a laptop computer and an internet connection…

Many of the nations that FedGov has been saber rattling with of late definitely have the capability.

In fact, the NSA’s top Cyber Warfare expert George R. Cotter is convinced that China and Russia have already penetrated the U.S. power grid, both for reconnaissance, and in order to plant cyber weapons that could be launched in the future!

In the video below, you can see a group of “White Hat” hackers that were hired to test the security of a power company. How quickly they get access is scary:

Could These Blackouts Be The Result of a Secretive Nuclear/EMP Drill By The Federal Government?

You know, there is such a thing as coincidence, but then again, some things are just too weird…

For example, here is an in depth article covering something called “Operation Gotham Shield“. You can read all about it there (including seeing the actual government PDF’s on the exercise.)

What is it?

SHTFPlan writes:

“It is a tabletop, joint agency exercise involving FEMA, Homeland Security and a myriad of law enforcement and military agencies. WMD, chemical and biological units will all be on hand as a response is tested for a “simulated” nuclear detonation over the United States’ foremost urban center, in the iconic and densely populated island of Manhattan and nearby shores of New Jersey.”

Cyberattack, Government False Flag, Or Just Bad Luck – It’s Definitely Time To Get Prepared!

A large-scale power outage is nothing to laugh at.

The potential effects are terrifying.

In fact, an attack on America’s power grid would bring us to our knees.

A long-term outage would be like being instantly sent back into the 19th century…

In the event of a nuclear/EMP attack that takes out all electronics, we would be devastated.

Dr. Peter Pry — a former CIA officer and executive director of the Task Force on National and Homeland Security — says within the first 12 months 9 out of 10 Americans — over 290,000,000 innocent men, women and children — will be not survive.

The congressional EMP commission on which I served calculated that within a year of blackout that knocks out the national grid, we would probably lose up to nine out of 10 Americans through starvation, disease and societal collapse,” said Pry.

The only reason we can sustain a population of 310 million Americans is technology. If you take that away, we don’t have any way of feeding, providing water or even providing communications and government for an orderly society that’s going to sustain 310 million Americans.”

The bottom line?

Take steps now to prepare.

  1. Always ‘follow the money’ as far as motives or coincidences go. Here’s why this wasn’t a coincidence. And it wasn’t a ‘chance’ series of equipment failures. Remember, the mainstream media and other ‘special interests’ would like nothing better than to excoriate big utility companies for their incompetence or failures so there would be a big media pumped investigation and inquiries, etc. But this was way too ‘media blacked out’ immediately after the incidents. That’s because either it was a government test, and the power companies wouldn’t go along with it if it made them look bad, or…it actually was a ‘probe’ hack by other countries or the usual enemy terrorist suspects, which also would not look good for power companies AND the DHS. But it was a ‘controlled burn’ as they say, and they all ended rather quickly, with minimal inconvenience–well within the predictable safe ‘time frame’ of the mass public panic window.

    So, in any case it will all be swept under the social blanket of intentional political obfuscation and concealment so it simply goes away quietly and…quickly fades to black in the short lived memories of the sheeple.

    Either way, like

  2. Life in Earth’s cities has become too complex with too many gotchas. Companies and workers should move out into small cities around the country. Life would be more relaxed and productive without the crunching of megacrappola into smaller spaces.

    • Actually, Dr. Looney, the opposite will occur. As the population increases to a point of causing ‘resource’ pressure and rolling waves of commercial ‘brown outs’ in the supply and demand networks, and fresh Water becomes a commodity, general populations will begin a tendency to migrate closer to big cities and the Great lakes areas and coastal waters in the next decade or two. While big Agriculture will buy up all the small crop growing farms inland areas as they already are doing to keep up with the demand for food.

  3. Life in the large cities is unnatural and too complicated for the human species (rather different from bees). A much better plan is to have many many small cites spread out around the country, each with its own water, gas and power services. People would have less pressure and if something goes wrong, it would not have such a major effect. You can bet that Islamic terrorists are noting these power outages and incorporating them into plans for some major destructive activities. Cheers,

  4. It was a warning. The 3 most evil and vile cities in the US, who would send them a warning?

  5. This HAD to be a US government black flag op on the American people. No way those some of those nice people that immigrated here from the middle-east would or could have done anything like this. Just sayin’.
