Revisiting The Oroville Dam Story

In spite of the fact that many readers of this website reside in California, I was quite surprised at the amount of feedback I had after my blog about the Oroville dam in northern California. In fact, so many people sent so many articles that I decided today’s blog would largely consist of the various articles people sent me, with as minimum commentary as possible. As the reader might recall, I indulged my usual high octane speculation on that story, pointing out that the spillway damage when viewed in the context of other strange, very deliberate attacks in and around the Bay area in recent years, takes on a rather different look. In short, I was arguing that perhaps the dam difficulties were in part deliberate and intended. Some people bombarded me for even suggesting such a possibility. How dare I? The dam was in disrepair. There was subsidence under the spillway due to years of drought; when the rains came that only exacerbated the situation. Well and good, but my point was not to advance a sole theory to the exclusion of others. If one deliberately wants to damage a dam, then prior subsidence will certainly aid the effort.

But as soon as those articles and theories were advanced, I began to get a flood – no pun intended – of other articles raising some prickly questions about Governor Moon Beam, and his cohort of crazies from Bersekley and San Franfreakshow, and most of them from Californians themselves who were asking “questions.” So, as I said, I decided to marshal all of these together – or at least significant representatives of these articles – and let the reader himself decide what the heck is going on. (Please note, some of the links would not link properly so you will have to copy and paste the address into your browser).

The first category of theory concerns the maintenance of the Oroville dam, which does indeed appear not to have been maintained at the highest level. Here’s one such version, shared by Mr. V.T.:

Who Will be Blamed if the Oroville Dam Fails?

Then there’s another version, which implicates the state governor in some activity displacing local sheriffs and their responses to the situation, again shared by Mr. V.T.:

Worsening Oroville Dam Crisis: The Good, the Bad, the Ugly

Ms. D.S. spotted this article, where Governor Moon Beam is – you guessed it – blaming the potential failure of the dam on “global warming,” not poor maintenance and certainly not on “deliberate action” of other types:

https://conservativedailypost.com/ca-governor-brown-will-not-face-charges-dam-disaster-blamed-instead-global-warming/

This article, from the Sacramento Bee, another find by Mr. V.T., points out that the dam’s maintenance manual is outdated, and based on weather patterns from fifty years ago:

Oroville Dam’s flood-control manual hasn’t been updated for half a century

Now things start to turn a bit murkier. The following two articles were shared by Ms. K.F. The first, an LA Times article, points out the governor allegedly had state officials investigate the oil drilling potential on some of his personal property in northern California, which the second link, a private post, alleges is near the dam:

Gov. Jerry Brown had state workers research oil on family ranch

Gov. Jerry Brown had state workers research oil on family ranch, can you guess where it is, a short drive to Oroville

Mr. V.T. then sent this article, which questions Governor Brown’s sense of urgency over the issue:

The Oroville Dam Crisis Is Not Over- Gov Brown Demonstrates Lack of Concern for Citizen Welfare

Mr. V.T. also discovered this article stating that the dam has been operating under temporary licenses for twelve years, implying that there were structural problems known to authorities for quite some time:

Oroville Dam running on temporary licenses; mandatory evacuations still in place

Mr. A. found this article, which is a “conspiracy theory” view of the disaster, complete with fifty-dollar bill folding exercise to “prove” its “case”:

Oroville Dam Update! Down the Rabbit Hole & Who Is Orchestrating This Event and 50 Dollar Bill

And Ms. B.Z. found yet another “conspiracy theory” article here from the same source that spurred my own high octane speculations:

Oroville Dam sabotage aimed at destroying Californian economy

This video link provided by Mr. G.L.R. suggests that the damaged area of the main spillway was known to state officials back in 2013:

So, what does all this add up to? Well, clearly, many people have detected something vaguely malodorous about the whole affair: the governor allegedly directing state employees to conduct mineral deposit investigations on his private property which happens to be close to the dam. Add to this the apparent known subsidence beneath the spillways, and damage apparently known for some time, outdated operation manuals, and so on, and one does have to wonder just what the heck is going on here. I have no doubt that subsidence was and is a contributory factor here, for with the drought the state has experienced in recent years, it would be irrational not to suspect this. But this does not rule out my prior speculations: subsidence could be exacerbated by carefully chosen and placed sabotage. One doesn’t need a bomb. A pick axe and some elbow grease at a properly chosen location will do: create a hole, and let the water do the rest. Again, I find the previous stories of sabotage – clearly deliberate – in northern California a peculiar context from which potentially to view this disaster. I am not saying that this is what happened, but merely that I view it as a possibility, simply because many Californians, caught in the drought and watching the once lush agriculture of the southern San Joaquin valley disappear, have been alleged that this, too, is a deliberately policy and ploy to pick up rich land on the cheap.

And while normally I do not report private stories on this website, again, this one is significant enough to pass along merely to see if anyone else noticed the same thing: one reader of this website emailed me to state that she had watched various videos and examined various pictures of the spillway damage, and could detect no rebar in the spillway concrete, an allegation that left me dumbfounded, for the imagination boggles at the idea of constructing a dam spillway without such rebar, given the enormous pressures and strains such spillways undergo when water is cascading down them. Indeed, she pointed out in her email that rebar was considered essential in all dam spillway construction; one simply would not construct a spillway without it. So then the question becomes, what happened to the rebar? If her allegations are true, the mind boggles.

By the way… she closed her email with an answer to that last question. Perhaps, she said, the rebar was simply “dustified,” borrowing the term from Dr. Judy Wood.

Whatever one makes of these stories, for my part, there’s enough smoke here to suggest a fire. But this is also a case of “you tell me”.[Bold Emphasis added throughout]
