      Domestic violent extremists have been planning to try to disrupt the U.S. power grid and will probably keep doing so, according to a Department of Homeland Security intelligence bulletin shared with law enforcement agencies and utility operators Monday and obtained by CBS News.

      “DVEs have developed credible, specific plans to attack electricity infrastructure since at least 2020, identifying the electric grid as a particularly attractive target given its interdependency with other infrastructure sectors,” the bulletin reads.

      It warns that extremists “adhering to a range of ideologies will likely continue to plot and encourage physical attacks against electrical infrastructure.”

      Still, the bulletin notes that, “Absent significant technical knowledge or insider assistance, small scale attacks are unlikely to cause widespread, multi-state power loss but may result in physical damage that poses risks to operations or personnel.”

      Best thing I can hope for is that these “boggaloo” bastards electrocute themselves and thin out the crazies…

      Guys get drunk and shoot at the ceramic insulators on high voltage electric transmission towers. For some reason, they like to park the pickup truck right below the wires so they get zapped when the line comes down. They sometimes knock out power over a wide area.

      I really do wish they’d stop trying to scare us with Bugaloo Boys. They are laughable. If I lived in California, I’d be far more worried about PG&E.
