  • EMP Question

    I have been aware of the serious effect an EMP attack would have on our country for some time. I recently read a most terrifying book, One Second After, and am now motivated to better prepare my family for this possibility. My question regards the viability of a 1987 Toyota 4x4 truck with a 22r carbureted engine. I have been told there is a vulnerable component in the non electronic ignition system. My understanding was that old coil, distributor system was safe. I have the opportunity to purchase this vehicle and would like to be sure that it can be...

    This is from the Free BeaconFrom David “Dave” Benham, U.S. Pacific Command, Fox News, May 12, 2017 ‘Depending on the specific characteristics of the attacks, unprecedented cascading failures of our major infrastructures could result,’ the 2004 commission warned in a statement. ‘In that event, a regional or national recovery would be long and difficult and would seriously degrade the safety and overall viability of our Nation.’ A lot of people in the (perhaps, fatally) distracted US media, as well as apparent, armchair “commenters and posters,” still openly poo-poo the idea of a Korean EMP attack on America.

    There are many who seem to routinely poo-poo the idea North Korea can field an EMP (Electro Magnetic Pulse) nuclear bomb attack on America. The generally uninformed, often-lying, US media does it all the time. And apparently well meaning bloggers and posters, seem to believe they have the answers. Some of them, “seem to know more,” than even retired CIA director Robert James Woolsey Jr, and another expert, US Congressional EMP Task Force director Dr. Peter Vincent Pry. And yet, these pundits and players, don’t know. They typically concentrate on the “unreliability” of North Korean missiles, the lack of reliable...

    It’s said that an Electromagnetic Pulse (EMP) bomb set off at the correct magnitude and altitude could “fry” the unprotected US power grid and send America back to the 18th Century. This means no electricity, emergency services, food production or delivery, water pumping or delivery, and failure of just about anything else that depends upon electricity, motors, or computers. Millions and millions of people would flat out die within days or weeks: of starvation, dehydration, fever, sickness, riots, and worse. And there are those critics—some seemingly madcap—who poo-poo the idea entirely, saying it can’t be accomplished by either Iran or...

    TEL AVIV – While the international community and news media focus on North Korean missile tests and the country’s nuclear program, one expert warned on Sunday that North Korea may be secretly assembling the capability to take out significant parts of the U.S. homeland via an electromagnetic pulse (EMP) attack. Dr. Peter Vincent Pry is executive director of the Task Force on National and Homeland Security and is the chief of staff of the Congressional EMP Commission. Speaking on this reporter’s talk radio program, Pry pointed to two North Korean satellites that are currently orbiting the U.S. at trajectories he...

    "North Korea missile explosion deliberate, experts sayBy Park Si-so - Posted : 2017-04-30 13:27The mid-air explosion of a North Korean missile on Saturday morning was deliberate, not a failed launch as claimed, South Korean government officials say. It is believed the North was testing a warhead explosion, an essential step toward testing a nuclear warhead explosion. "We don't believe the mid-air explosion was an accident," cable news channel YTN quoted a government official as saying. "It's believed the explosion was a test to develop a nuclear weapon different from existing ones." The nuclear-armed isolated country fired a ballistic missile on...

    Retired CIA Director James Woolsey said Friday that North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un "may have more up his sleeve" than firing a nuclear missile at the United States. "It is a little worse than that," Woolsey, 75, a former Navy undersecretary, told Don Lemon on CNN. "They can launch a satellite into orbit. "That's actually easier to do than to hit a target on the other side of the Earth. "If that satellite contains a small nuclear weapon — and it is detonated over some place, say the United States, it can be devastating to the electric grid. "So, we've...

    While the total wipeout depicted in One Second After is probably exaggerated, the effects could knock out our power grid for months, and destroy critical communications and computer systems. As former CIA chief James Woolsey recently said: If you look at the electric grid and what it's susceptible to, we would be moving into a world with no food delivery, no water purification, no banking, no telecommunications, no medicine. All of these things depend on electricity in one way or another. In such a situation, there simply is no way to rule out the possibility that hundreds of millions could...

    Amid warnings that North Korea and Iran have plans to take out parts of the U.S. electric grid through a cyber attack or atmospheric nuclear blast, the Pentagon is taking steps to both protect the nation's communications and power lifeline. The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency has charged BAE Systems to map a system that can detect a cyber attack and gin up an alternative communications network for military and civilian use if the grid is fried, according to Defense Systems, the online newsletter. Former CIA Director James Woolsey has been warning for years that the grid is extremely vulnerable,...

    We believe, based on comments made by two remarkable experts on this subject, Dr. Peter Pry of emptaskforce.org and Ambassador Hank Cooper of highfrontier.com, the latter of whom worked in the Reagan Administration, that Iran already has the bomb and is working on figuring out how to get it into a vehicle and send it our way. It will not, however deliver annihilation to any single city or cities in the conventional sense. That would be pointless, futile and suicidal. Instead, working together with North Korea, they will seek to take out our electric infrastructure and anything electronic via satellites...

    The mainstream media, and some officials who should know better, continue to allege North Korea does not yet have capability to deliver on its repeated threats to strike the U.S. with nuclear weapons. False reassurance is given to the American people that North Korea has not “demonstrated” that it can miniaturize a nuclear warhead small enough for missile delivery, or build a reentry vehicle for an intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) capable of penetrating the atmosphere to blast a U.S. city. Yet any nation that has built nuclear weapons and long-range missiles, as North Korea has done, can easily overcome the...

    In February and March of 2015, former senior national security officials of the Reagan and Clinton administrations warned that North Korea should be regarded as capable of delivering by satellite a small nuclear warhead, specially designed to make a high-altitude electromagnetic pulse (EMP) attack against the United States. According to the Congressional EMP Commission, a single warhead delivered by North Korean satellite could blackout the national electric grid and other life-sustaining critical infrastructures for over a year—killing 9 of 10 Americans by starvation and societal collapse. Two North Korean satellites, the KMS-3 and KMS-4, presently orbit over the U.S. on...

    THERE is a one in eight chance that the Earth will be hit by a huge solar storm by 2020 which could potentially leave the world without Internet, phone service and many more services that modern-day humans rely on. Researchers have warned that there is roughly a 12 per cent chance that a solar storm could smash into Earth by the end of the decade. The powerful event would likely be as huge as the Carrington Event, which occurred on 1859. The solar storm which hit 150 years ago was so powerful that its southern auroras could be seen as...

    As of this writing, the increased U.S. troop presence in Eastern Europe includes a battalion-sized element of American troops being emplaced in the Suwalki Gap, Polish territory that borders Lithuania in a 60-mile stretch of corridor. The Russian Defense Ministry announced that 600 Russian and Belarussian airborne troops conducted training exercises in Brest, on the Belorussian-Polish border only a few miles from where the U.S. forces are deploying in Poland. This on the heels of Britain deploying 800 men, tanks, and jets to Estonia, along with pledges of Challenger 2 tanks, APC’s (Armored Personnel Carriers), and drones. Two companies of...

Some of these items you are undoubtedly familiar with; the report’s objective is to compile important details, dates, statements, and actions to present an overall view. This is to provide you with a “compendium” of actions taken and information gathered to refer to this real and imminent threat of a North Korean (or other nation’s) capabilities to strike the U.S. with an EMP (Electromagnetic Pulse) weapon. For many years, now, the U.S. has been initiating actions with nations through...

    Delta Airlines recently experienced what it called a power outage in its home base of Atlanta, Georgia, causing all the company’s computers to go offline—all of them. This seemingly minor hiccup managed to singlehandedly ground all Delta planes for six hours, stranding passengers for even longer, as Delta scrambled to reshuffle passengers after the Monday debacle. Where Delta blamed its catastrophic systems-wide computer failure vaguely on a loss of power, Georgia Power, their power provider, placed the ball squarely in Delta’s court, saying that “other Georgia Power customers were not affected”, and that they had staff on site to assist...

    I was listening to the talk radio show Coast to Coast AM, this morning. There was a very good segment, on the threat of losing power, due to an EMP attack. This is an issue, which George Noory, has been talking about, for almost two years. I support him on this, and think this is an issue which Trump should take a position on. America needs to protect our electrical grid.

    Surely there is no remedy to this potential danger or the federal government would take necessary precautions to protect us against this threat. After all, isn’t that precisely why government exists in the first place, to keep us safe? The good news is that protective equipment for the civilian grid is available and can be installed in a timely manner. The bad news is that the departments of Homeland Security and Energy have done little so far to protect us against this very real danger.
