They’re right on top of things, aren’t they?

In an extraordinary and sobering report meant to educate the nation on a growing threat, a new military study warns that an electromagnetic pulse weapon attack such as those developed by North Korea, Russia, and Iran could essentially challenge the United States and displace millions.

“Based on the totality of available data,” said the report from the Air Force’s Air University and provided to Secrets, “an electromagnetic spectrum attack may be a threat to the United States, democracy, and the world order.”

    Nine years ago William Fortschen and Newt Gingrich wrote a novel about the aftermath of an EMP attack. Based it on government reports. Oh, well. There’s no rush.

    Is this what is referred to as a Carrington event?

  3. FrankP says:

    it appears to support a congressional warning that up to 90 percent of the population on the East Coast would die in a year of an attack

    Well, an event like that will definitely swing the vote in the convervative’s direction.

    Had me an EMP Drill all day yesterday. Power was out all day. I shit my pants as a drill, so I know when it really happens I will be able to shit my pants.

    Well duh! You only now think our enemies might just want to turn us back to the 1800’s in the blink of an eye!
    Guess they never listened to Glenn Beck..

    Wait a minute, there’s something wrong with this report. The MSM, Democrats and Joy Behar have labeled Trump as the greatest threat. Who would doubt those credible sources?

  7. Matt says:

    The effects of EMPs have been known since the Starfish Prime and other U.S. & Soviet high altitude tests of the early 60s. As mentioned above, the Congressional EMP report was blown of by all in the gübermint. Nothing will change with this report.

    For anyone worried about this (and people should be) you need to make your own preparations.

    It’s not a matter of if but when. If we aren’t hit by a manmade nuke EMP then eventually the sun is going to nail us with a CME event…..which can be MUCH bigger and more widespread than any man made event. Either way our infrastructure is woefully unprepared.

  9. MTD says:

    Honestly, at this point I would almost consider it a blessing if the US got EMP’d and went dark. I’d probably last about a week, but at least I’d go out knowing that all of the dipshit SJWs and freak shows in society are also checking out too.

    I wrote a blog piece about that a while back – a little story. This is scary stuff. https://wilderwealthywise.com/civilization-the-iron-triangle-and-you/

  11. Djamer says:

    It’s a good thing guns and such won’t be affected. . .

  12. NewVegasBadger says:

    No shit Sherlock! But why worried about EMPs when your career and promotion is on the line, regarding protection of the feeling of your LGBTPDQXYZ, minorities and feminists and all other victims of white males.

    What a joke this is old news that people have been warning about for years. What they don’t mention is that the Russians, Chinese and such have been hardening their grids and systems to protect against this threat, while our government under multiple admin’s have been ignoring the threat, and yes I to have read one second after several times.

  14. Nemo says:

    These end of civilization as we know it book scenarios go way back to the late 70’s with “Lucifer’s Hammer” and others before and since. Hammer was a quasi nuclear winter scenario, initiated by an asteroid strike, meant to bring attention to the MAD scenario of the Cold War. The setting is in the USA. Good book.

    mass suicide as millennials go without cell phones, Facebook, twitter and video games during the 1st hour after the attack.

    • Butch says:

      Finally some positive news! (about millennials)

      The US has three major grids, I believe. I know for a fact Texas has their own grid and the rest of the country is either on one of two, or all on one.I don’t care, I live in Texas.

      So what this State is doing is continually improving our grid and sectionalizing it, so when one area is affected, power can be routed around or switched to other distribution lines.

      And we don’t have all our generators sitting together. There are huge gen stations and some relatively small. I drive on Interstate 35 which comes out of Mexico heading north. Mexico manufactures chingos of transformers. Huge ones that could run a manufacturing plant all the way down to the size they make for a house. I see truckloads going north on I-35 all the time. Some have to be going to other places besides Texas.

      But with that many transformers coming from Mexico, I doubt there will be much lag in replacing key transformers.

      And here, everyone of any substance has a portable gen-set. Fuel will become a problem unless the people have stockpiled plenty. Wind and solar are about the same here as most other places, they together might provide 2% of power demand.

      I’m a-ways north of the Mexican Border, but I know how Mexico is, and if you have electrical power or water for a full day, you are very lucky. In some places the water and the electric goes off more than it is on. And people by the millions don’t die. They have learned to live with it. If the elites want to subject us to that kind of living, I think most of us can adapt.

    An EMP won’t throw us back to the 1800s. It will throw us much further back than that, maybe a thousand years further. In the 1800s there was a well developed support system of iron implements, horse drawn plow tack, millions of draft animals, and etc.
    Not so much now.

    You’ve all been taught fm day one; nothing like a good ol’ fashion ass whopping to get your mind right. Bring it on!

    Threats to ‘democracy’ I have no problem with. Funny (not funny) how that word has been subverted and re-injected into our lives.

  19. Gryphon says:

    Biggest Threat is to all Grid-Tied Electrical stuff – It take Miles of Wire acting as the Antenna for the Electromagnetic Force to build up Damaging Voltage, but with MOST Electronic Devices today having Very Sensitive Integrated Circuits (Chips) the threshold Voltage for destructive damage is a lot Lower. Cars with Computer/Electronic Ignition are Not Shielded well enough to withstand much Overvoltage or EMF, and likely will be Knocked Out. Older stuff with Distributor/Point Ignition, and All Diesels with Mechanical Injection are Safe.

    There is a lot of Hysteria about what effects on Small Electronics, like Hand-Held Radios, GPS Receivers and the Like, along with bogus ‘how to make a Faraday Cage’ articles out there; For the Straight Scoop, look at the ARRL (Ham Radio Org) Website for Articles related to keeping Comms Gear Safe. Search there for “EMP and the Ham” (not a Cookbook)

    Lots of DOD Publications on the Subject are Unclassified and Available on the ‘net, also.
    If you want to Relay on Hand-Held Radios or C/B stuff, keep a few in Steel Ammunition Cans, it’s all the Protection they need.

    All of the Negative Effects of an EMP Attack are summed up well in that Book, “One Second After” Which really examines in Detail the reliance of “Civilization” on Electricity; Suicides by Snowflakes when they figure out the fakebook and Idiotphone network is Gone will be Epic.

    You could protect your electronic devices in a Faraday cage, but what good will they do you if the network and everyone else’s phones are fried?
