Marjorie Taylor Greene penned conspiracy theory that a laser beam from space started deadly 2018 Cal

In November 2018, California was hit with the worst wildfire in the state’s history. At the time, future Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) wrote a bizarre Facebook post that echoed QAnon conspiracy theorists and falsely claimed that the real and hidden culprit behind the disaster was a laser from space triggered by some nefarious group of people.

...

Conspiracy theorists have pushed other explanations for the Camp Fire, especially on social media. One theory, which has been promoted by QAnon followers, falsely posits that a nefarious entity used laser beams or a similar instrument to start the fire for financial profit or to clear space for California’s high-speed rail system.

Rep. Greene is a proponent of the Camp Fire laser beam conspiracy theory. She wrote a November 17, 2018, Facebook post -- which is no longer available online -- in which she said that she was speculating “because there are too many coincidences to ignore” regarding the fire, including that then-California Gov. Jerry Brown (D) wanted to build the high-speed rail project and “oddly there are all these people who have said they saw what looked like lasers or blue beams of light causing the fires.” She also speculated that a vice chairman at “Rothschild Inc, international investment banking firm” was somehow involved, and suggested the fire was caused by a beam from “space solar generators.”

Greene added: “If they are beaming the suns energy back to Earth, I’m sure they wouldn’t ever miss a transmitter receiving station right??!! I mean mistakes are never made when anything new is invented. What would that look like anyway? A laser beam or light beam coming down to Earth I guess. Could that cause a fire? Hmmm, I don’t know. I hope not! That wouldn’t look so good for PG&E, Rothschild Inc, Solaren or Jerry Brown who sure does seem fond of PG&E.”

2. How long before Greene has a leadership position within the House GOP caucus?

My guess is some time within the next year.

She is currently the intellectual leader of the GOP.

3. Just to be clear:

"Rothchilds" is "code" for Jews.

It really isn't "code" since everyone should know this by now.

14. Exactly!

The first thing I thought when I read "Rothschild International" was "Why does it always have to involve Jewish people?" I am sure that right wingers would say, "We didn't say Jews, we are talking about international banking" BULLSHIT. Your codes are broken in real time idiots. We know your lineage. We know your positions.

10. Why would anyone use a laser beam to start a forest fire when

a box of matches would suffice? When it gets dry enough out there, it's not hard at all for fires to get started. But there I go trying to apply logic to foolishness.

15. The cause of the Camp Fire was Capitalism

A private company, that has a virtual monopoly on electrical generation in Central and Northern California, which notoriously defers maintenance on their equipment, caused the fire when their aged and not well maintained equipment ( a power line) sparked the fire.

It wasn't a box of matches, it wasn't lasers, it was the profit motive.

I hope the people who were in charge of maintaining their equipment go to prison. They caused all that misery just to save some money. How sad.

20. Yep, follow the money.

I've lived in Northern California for almost 60 years. In that time, I've known a number of people who work for PG&E, including my grandson's wife. Two things have been true with 100% of them. They all have a parent or other relative who works there, and they are paid obscene amounts of money. I mean five figure end of year bonuses are not unusual. Make that six figures for upper management. And if you don't have a relative who works there, don't even bother to apply for a job.

24. That woman needs to go back under her rock & take her friends with her...

I knew “Soros” was a euphemism for the International Jewish Conspiracy of old, but this bimbo comes right out and says it’s the Rothschilds, which is really antique.

What next? She’ll wave a copy of The Protocols of the Elders of Zion before the House?

Pardon me while I barf. Preferably on her shoes.

Otherwise, they'll crawl out again.

That's not an option though. Just me venting.

22. Greene is a weirdo! It's crazy! Wacko! Nuts! to think anything like that actually happened. But...

 


... it also seems possible that such a weapon could actually be built and launched, and could enable precise surgical strikes with little collateral damage.
