Published on July 18, 2019

When the lights went out in a huge swath of New York City, residents adapted by directing traffic themselves, and Broadway stars took their shows to the streets.

    Holy shit, this is a direct message to tru news from the synagogue of Satan. They are just indicating who is charge of the United States infrastructure.

    @Fatme Jebai, dude how many comments are you gonna post? Not my problem but I’m just curious if early viewers always do this.

    We absolutely need the new green deal ?? Then you can report it when it has electricity. Because no electricity will be the norm ???

    Trevor no mention of Johnnie Clegg. Shame on you

    The whole electricity infrastructure can definitely use some upgrades. Hacking a couple blocks in Manhattan is one thing, but the same thing could be applied to critical infrastructure that will cost lives.

    There’s no such thing as coincidences… our government won’t stop attacking nyc. To all my woke New Yorkers, leave the city while you can. God bless

    I live in the area where it happened and it really wasn’t that bad. It wasn’t that hot. Nothing even went bad in my fridge.

    Underdeveloped Countries : Hold my electricity

    This happened about a month after the huge blackout that hit South America. Trevor even mentioned on the show that maybe it was the Russians trying hit the US but picking the wrong America

    I remember the ‘77 black out. Living in Co-op city, back when it was pretty, and climbing 24 flights of stairs to get home! And, of course we did the 48 floor building roof tops. Youth!!

    Geesh, i thought our goverment was fucking our Country by not investing into the infrastructure(despite negative interest rates that Germany gets atm). But you in the US, are ahead of the curve of the cilized world once again.

    I’d still like somebody to explain why the power grid and nuclear power plants have to be on the Internet?
    All this same stuff worked pretty well back in the ’80s before the WWW was invented and there was no Internet.
    And can someone explain why all these systems are still using Windows XP?
    We’ve put ourselves into the corner and vulnerable to attack.

    I’d be terrified … and that’s why I don’t live in a big city

    Most likely the blackout is a sign that the system is overloaded. Let’s not fall for the fear mongering.

    I bet this has not been the Russians. I mean come on, we’re America, invincible, the best, greatest, strongest… For cryin’ out loud I almost vomit from writing this nonsense…!
