Arnold reveals his plan to re-adopt the
deregulations that allowed Californians
to be Defrauded

 

Taking the Ken Lay-Bush-Administration-FERC
(Federal Energy Regulatory Commission) view on
the California energy scam of 2000-2001, Mr.
Schwarzenegger blames the state and specifically
Grey Davis for the fraud that was perpetrated
against the state and its citizens. Since it was the
state's fault, Arnold can justify his position and has
no problem proposing the same deregulated system
that was used to run energy prices up over $10,000
per mega watt. Mr. Schwarzenegger wants to return
to essentially the same model instituted by former Republican
governor Pete Wilson, which allowed the energy companies
to fraudulently steal from the people of California at will.
It was Mr. Davis who inherited the Pete Wilson deregulation
system--not the other way around. Not only that, but
Mr.
Schwarzenegger wants to reform the very law--
Civil Code Section 17200
of the Unfair Practices Act--upon
which the Davis administration bases one of its lawsuits
against the perpetrators of the California energy scam.
You may read Mr. Schwarzenegger's entire agenda here
on the Yurica Report. Also see the San Francisco
Chronicle's excellent report on Schwarzenegger's
Push to Deregulate Energy.” For a quick glance at
his own report on energy proposals, click here:

Read Arnold's agenda and
weep:
He says he's for the people,
for the workers, for the disabled, for the
immigrants, for workman's compensation,
and for the injured. But his agenda reveals
that far from being the "people's governor"
he's in bed with the rich and with Ken Lay
making Lay's policies his own.

 

 

What the true cost to Californians
will be now that Arnold has won the
governorship:
New York Times Bestselling
author Greg Palast puts California losses at $9 billion.
Mr. Schwarzenegger's own agenda for California reveals
his opposition to the Gray Davis and Cruz Bustamante
plans to regain the illegal profits from the energy companies
who violated the law. Palast's figure of $9 billion is the
amount the energy companies profited from their scam,
but if you add up the bailouts, the long-term power
contracts and other factors, the bill comes to $71 billion
or $2,100 for every man, woman and child in California.
Bustamante's law suit alone would regain the $9 billion
from the perpetrators, but as Greg Palast warned
California on the eve of the election: Its hasta la vista
to $9 billion if the Governator is selected!
Read Greg Palasts prescient article.

Arnold Must Explain or Face an Inquiry.

crisis, or he will face an Inquiry.

 

 


 

The California Energy Fraud Cases

which started in 2000 and continued through the
early months of 2001, when electricity prices spiked
to their highest levels. Prices went from $12 per
megawatt hour in 1998 to $200 in December 2000 to
$250 in January 2001, and at times a megawatt
cost $1,000.
