The EMP threat is a story that just will not go away. This article bring to light some of the most recent developments of the US government in an attempt thwart what is believed to be an impending EMP threat.
Two missile launches by a rogue state , which detonate 100 miles above the mid-continent United States would lead to a catastrophic blackout of the nation’s power grid.
New Concerns Over an Old Problem
Yesterday, one of my most reliable conduits of information, Paul Martin contacted me with urgent information regarding urgent preparations by this government for what they believe to be an impending EMP threat. Paul has proven himself to be a reliable source of information because he is connected to very good, albeit anonymous sources of information. His message to me was that there has been an intense and all encompassing set of drills conducted by the “agencies” designed to practice against an anticipated EMP attack. The drills were ostensibly covert, yet word has indeed leaked out.
After Paul called me I immediately contacted and was able to speak at length to one of my most reliable sources. In effect, he confirmed what Paul Martin had told me, but this conversation went much further. Subsequently, I have spent a complete night researching the literature in order to provide confirming/disconfirming information to what I was told. I have concluded that an EMP attack is likely and the alphabet soup agencies are fully aware of the looming threat and are taking predictable steps to mitigate the problem. In fact, the mitigation efforts for such an attack has been ongoing for sometime.
Government Preparations for an EMP Attack
The pied piper for the need for an all-encompassing nation defense strategy to defend against an EMP attack.
For the past sixyears, I have written about the efforts of my Congressman Trent Franks (R-AZ) and how he has tried to become the Paul Revere of the EMP danger. I have previously expressed extreme frustration because Franks seemed like the lone voice in the wilderness as he was desperately trying to save this nation from a catastrophe of unprecedented proportions. Yet, it now seems that his efforts have produced some positive results.
The Reopening of NORAD’s Cheyenne Mountain Facility in Colorado Springs
The Wall Street Journal featured an op-ed piece, written by two former Reagan-era government officials, Henry Cooper and Peter Fry. The authors spoke of a potential and devastating attack to the US power grid by rogue, nuclear states such as North Korea and Iran. This has subsequently led the North American Aerospace Defense Command (NORAD) to return to its previous location inside Cheyenne Mountain near Colorado Springs, Colorado.
Cooper and Pry stated that, “Because the enormous bunker in the hollowed-out mountain, built to survive a Cold War-era nuclear conflict, can also resist an electromagnetic-pulse attack, or EMP. An EMP strike, most likely from the detonation of a nuclear weapon in space, would destroy unprotected military and civilian electronics nationwide, and would subsequently the electric grid and other critical infrastructure for months or years. The staggering human cost of such a catastrophic attack is not difficult to imagine.”
Since Franks first started sounding the alarm in 2008, the Pentagon has indeed moved towards shielding its global air defense command from being knocked out by an electromagnetic pulse EMP attack. However, and very predictably, the Obama administration has miserably failed to act on the urgent and time-sensitive recommendations to protect the country’s civilian electronic infrastructure from the catastrophic effects of an EMP attack.
Should the nation be surprised that Obama has failed to act upon this real threat? This is just one more item of proof that Obama is a Manchurian Candidate who is determined to keep “fundamentally transforming America”, until there is no more America.
Cooper, Pry and my insider source all indentified two nations as being the most likely source of an EMP attack. These two nations are the likeliest source of such an attack would be North Korea or Iran, according to Cooper, former director of the Strategic Defense Initiative, launched by the late President Ronald Reagan, and Pry, executive director of the EMP Task Force on National and Homeland Security and a veteran of the Central Intelligence Agency.
In the Journal, Cooper and Pry point out that Iran and North Korea “Iran should be regarded as already having have successfully orbited satellites on South-Polar trajectories that appear to practice evading U.S. missile defenses nuclear missiles capable of making an EMP attack against the U.S.,” noting, and at optimum altitudes to make a surprise EMP attack. Hardening the national electric grid would cost a few billion dollars, a trivial amount compared with the loss of electricity and lives following an EMP attack.” An EMP Commission, recently formed asked Obama to draft an Executive Order to protect that nation’s infrastructure. However, and Cooper and Pry point out, Obama has failed to act upon the request.
Yet, Obama is the unworthy recipient of preferential treatment. In the event of an EMP attack, the President has a “special plane” dubbed Nighthawk which can survive and function during an EMP attack. The plane is loaded with a mix of high tech equipment and analog and primitive communication devices which still might be in play in some ground sites.
The Naval War College has stated that in the event of a full-scale EMP attack, 90% of all Americans will be dead within two years.
The Areas You Don’t Want to Be When an EMP Is Discharged
As James Wesley Rawles pointed out to me in a recent interview, there are several areas that would be very unfortunate for your to be at when an EMP is discharged.
Being in one of the 4,000 planes that would be flying, would be fatal. Being in the hospital on life-sustaining equipment. Being trapped in a high rise building elevator. This would become your tomb. Being on the highway at night when all the lights and go out as well as most car engines. There would be multiple and devastating accidents. Being more that 10 miles from home in harsh weather. Do you have a bug in bag? Consider a fold up bike.
The list is more extensive, but you get the idea.
For the price of one B-1 bomber, Obama refuses to act to protect America from such an attack. Since the two most likely states who will carry out this attack, Iran and North Korea, we should consider an attack by these states upon the United States to be an attack from their dominant allies, Russia and China.
Also, the President and his top officials will survive. Will you?
In past articles I have written about an EMP attack, I have not had such concrete information regarding an impending attack with the full knowledge of the US government. And what is Obama doing to protect you? Nothing!
Don’t wait for the collapse of the dollar because it will be too late.
