There’s a total media blackout over a Vegas power plant attack. The person in question does not fit the stereotype of an extremist that progressive and official media frequently propagate.

Extremists are shooting, sabotaging, and vandalizing electrical equipment at power plants, attacking the US power grid. One of the most well-known attacks occurred on Christmas Day when two guys in Washington State paralyzed a substation with weapons, cutting off thousands of people’s access to energy. Strangely, despite this incident making national headlines, a separate attack on the Las Vegas electrical infrastructure last week went unreported by the media.
In an attempt to damage a large transformer, Mohammad Mesmarian, 34, drove his automobile through the gate of a solar power producing facility south of Las Vegas on Wednesday. He then set the car on fire, reported 8 News Now.
“Employees at the plant said they found a car smoldering in a generator pit,” 8 News Now reported, noting that the Mega Solar Array plant delivers power to 13 MGM Resorts properties on the Las Vegas Strip.
According to documents from the investigation, Mesmarian is suspected to have “siphoned gasoline from his car to put on wires at the transformer.”

Here is surveillance video showing Mesmarian setting his vehicle on fire next to a huge transformer.
Mesmarian inflicted “major damage,” according to 8 News Now, who estimated it would take two years to get the necessary parts and repair the transformer. Fortunately, the damaged unit was not operational at the time of the incident.
“Following an incident at the Mega Solar Array facility, on-site personnel immediately notified authorities and shut down the plant’s operations as a precaution in accordance with industry-standard safety protocols,” an Invenergy spokesperson said.
Mesmarian was detained on Thursday at a campground. He is charged of carrying out a terrorist act, first- and third-degree arson, damaging or destroying another’s real or personal property, and escaping from a felony jail.
Why doesn’t the national news cover this terror attack on the electricity grid?
Reports are claiming that terrorists are entering the US in unprecedented numbers. A significant portion of those eluding law enforcement at the border are employed by Mexican drug gangs contributing to fentanyl-related fatalities in the United States.
Maybe the person in question does not fit the stereotype of an extremist that progressive and official media frequently propagate.
