What Are You Going To Do When A Massive EMP Blast Fries The U.S. Electrical Grid?

The United States Of America At NightIt is only a matter of time before a massive EMP burst fries the U.S. electrical grid.  What that happens, how are you going to survive?  In the United States today, we are completely and totally dependent on electrical power.  Unless you are Amish (or are a part of a similar community), you probably have absolutely no idea how to survive in a world without electricity.  Unfortunately, our electrical grid is extremely vulnerable at this point.  As you will see below, intelligence officials believe that China and Russia already have “super-EMP weapons”, and a whole host of smaller nations and terrorist groups are believed to be working on developing similar weapons.  But even if the U.S. is never attacked by an EMP weapon, scientists tell us that it is inevitable that a massive solar storm will fry our electrical grid someday.  If an event similar to the solar storm of 1859 happened today, it would be absolutely catastrophic.  Known as “the Carrington Event”, that massive solar storm fried telegraph machines all over Europe and North America.  At some point we will experience another such solar storm, and some scientists believe that we are already 50 years overdue for another one.  In fact, the earth had a “near miss” just a few months ago.

So what will happen if we are hit by a massive EMP blast?  Well, according to a government commission that investigated this issue, approximately two-thirds of the U.S. population could potentially die from starvation, disease and societal chaos within one year.  It would be a disaster unlike anything that we have ever seen before in U.S. history.

Frank Gaffney, the president of the Center for Security Policy, is even more pessimistic.  He believes that a single EMP blast could potentially end up killing almost the entire population of the United States

“Within a year of that attack, nine out of 10 Americans would be dead, because we can’t support a population of the present size in urban centers and the like without electricity”

As a society, we are simply not equipped to function without electricity.  Dr. William Graham was the chairman of the government commission that I mentioned above, and he says that a giant EMP blast could knock the United States back into “the late 1800s” in just a single moment

Life after an EMP attack “would probably be something that you might imagine life to be like around the late 1800s but with several times the population we had in those days, and without the ability of the country to support and sustain all those people,” Graham says. “They wouldn’t have power. Food supplies would be greatly taken out by the lack of transportation, telecommunication, power for refrigeration and so on.”

And remember, this does not require an attack by a foreign power.  A gigantic solar storm could cause an event like this at literally any time.  According to a recent WND article, it is estimated that it would take four to ten years to recover from a direct hit from a massive solar storm…

If the earth is hit by a direct solar flare, some of which can be 14 times the size of the earth, scientists from NASA and the National Academy of Sciences say it would cost the nation alone up to $2 trillion in the first year. It could take four to 10 years to recover and affect 90 percent of the U.S. population, meaning widespread starvation and death.

So what would life look like for you and your family if this happened?

Consider the following…

-There would be no heat for your home.

-Water would no longer be pumped into most homes.

-Your computer would not work.

-There would be no Internet.

-Your phones would not work.

-There would be no television.

-There would be no radio.

-ATM machines would be shut down.

-There would be no banking.

-Your debit cards and credit cards would not work.

-Without electricity, gas stations would not be functioning.

-Most people would be unable to do their jobs without electricity and employment would collapse.

-Commerce would be brought to a standstill.

-Hospitals would not be able to function.

-You would quickly start running out of medicine.

-All refrigeration would shut down and frozen foods in our homes and supermarkets would start to go bad.

-Some vehicles would no longer be able to start at all.

-Traffic lights would no longer be working.

-Airplanes would not be able to go anywhere.

-Wall Street would not be able to function at all.

-Government services would collapse.

A lot of these effects would start to be felt immediately.  An article by Mac Slavo detailed some of the things that we could expect to see in the immediate aftermath of a massive EMP blast…

The first 24 – 48 hours after such an occurrence will lead to confusion among the general population as traditional news acquisition sources like television, radio and cell phone networks will be non-functional.

Within a matter of days, once people realize the power might not be coming back on and grocery store shelves start emptying, the entire system will begin to delve into chaos.

Within 30 days a mass die off will have begun as food supplies dwindle, looters and gangs turn to violent extremes, medicine can’t be restocked and water pump stations fail.

So what is the federal government doing to protect us against such a horrific disaster?

Absolutely nothing.

In fact, according to a recent WND article, ex-CIA Director Michael Hayden says that the Obama administration has no plans to defend us against an EMP blast…

Contrary to the findings of a 2008 commission mandated by Congress to consider a defense against an electromagnetic pulse attack and its effects on the national grid, a retired Air Force general who also headed the National Security Agency and the Central Intelligence Agency says that there isn’t a solution to an EMP attack.

Speaking before the Bipartisan Policy Center at a conference on the threats to the U.S. electrical grid, Michael Hayden also said the Obama administration has no plan to defend against an EMP.

In fact, Hayden says that “there really aren’t any solutions” to this problem…

“I don’t mean to be so flippant, but there really aren’t any solutions to this, so I would just leave it at that,” Hayden said.

Of course that is a complete and total lie.  It would take less than a billion dollars to protect the largest transformers in our electrical grid.  But the Obama administration refuses to do it.

Since the Obama administration is doing nothing, some state government officials are now considering taking action…

At the National Council of State Legislatures last week in Atlanta, a number of lawmakers said they’re preparing legislation similar to a bill introduced in Maine recently did under the leadership of Rep. Andrea Boland.

Efforts are under way to press the membership of the NCSL to address the EMP issue, since the federal government has failed to take action to mitigate the potential for a catastrophic event, whether natural or man-made. An EMP event could knock out the U.S. electrical grid system and the critical infrastructures that rely on it.

Along with the national electrical grid, other critical infrastructures include telecommunications, banking and financial transactions, oil and natural gas pipelines, transportation, food and water delivery, emergency services and space systems.

In short, an EMP event could cause the collapse of society.

And without a doubt, our electrical grid represents the “soft underbelly” of U.S. infrastructure.  Attacks on the electrical grid happen all the time, but most of them are not reported by the mainstream media.  The following report of an attack is from a recent Forbes article

More than 10,000 people in Arkansas were dumped into a blackout Sunday following an attack on that state’s electric grid, the FBI said today, the third such attack in recent weeks. In August, a major transmission line in the region, around Cabot, Ark., was deliberately cut.

The FBI said that two power poles had been intentionally cut in Lonoke County on Sunday, resulting in the outage.

The following is how the FBI described the attack

In the early morning hours of September 29, 2013, officials with Entergy Arkansas reported a fire at its Keo substation located on Arkansas Highway 165 between Scott and England in Lonoke County. Fortunately, there were no injuries and no reported power outages. Investigation has determined that the fire, which consumed the control house at the substation, was intentionally set. The person or persons responsible for this incident inscribed a message on a metal control panel outside the substation which reads, ‘YOU SHOULD HAVE EXPECTED U.S.’

But minor attacks like that are nothing compared to what an EMP weapon could potentially do to our electrical grid.

And our strategic enemies have been working on developing such weapons.  The following is a short excerpt from a statement by Dr. Peter Vincent Pry to the United States Senate Subcommittee on Terrorism, Technology and Homeland Security on March 8th, 2005…

Russian and Chinese military scientists in open source writings describe the basic principles of nuclear weapons designed specifically to generate an enhanced-EMP effect, that they term “Super-EMP” weapons. “Super-EMP” weapons, according to these foreign open source writings, can destroy even the best protected U.S. military and civilian electronic systems.

But it is not just Russia and China that we need to be worried about.

According to Pry, North Korea also has such weapons

Pry pointed out that South Korean military intelligence has warned not only their government but also the U.S. that North Korea is developing super-EMP warheads with Russian help.

In 2011, Pry pointed out, a military commentator with the People’s Republic of China stated that North Korea has super-EMP warheads. Data from North Korea’s nuclear tests, he said, are consistent with a super-EMP warhead.

And it should be noted that it is very possible to create a devastating EMP burst without exploding a nuke high up in the atmosphere.  In fact, the U.S. and other nations have been very busy working on such weapons.  For example, the U.S. military has reportedly developed “a directed electromagnetic pulse gun” that can take out all electronics within a limited area.  This kind of EMP weapon can be fired from a plane, a cruise missile or even a drone.  The following is how this class of weapon was described in a WND article

A pre-programmed cruise missile not too different from a drone has been proven to be capable of blasting out an EMP-type microwave that was able to destroy personal computers and electrical systems inside a building over which it was flying.

The U.S. Air Force and its contractor Boeing have created the High-powered Microwave Advanced Missile Project, or CHAMP, which was just tested over a Utah desert.

In addition, “radio frequency weapons” are so simple that terror groups or even “lone wolf crazies” could easily build them and use them.  The following is from an article by F. Michael Maloof

Such an individual with a penchant for electronics can pull together components from a Radio Shack or electronic store – even order the components off of selected Internet websites – and fashion a radio frequency, or RF, weapon.

As microprocessors become smaller but more sophisticated, they are even more susceptible to an RF pulse. The high power microwave from an RF weapon produces a short, very high power pulse, said to be billions of watts in a nanosecond, or billionths of a second.

This so-called burst of electromagnetic waves in the gigahertz microwave frequency band can melt electrical circuitry and damage integrated circuits, causing them to fail.

Constructing a radio frequency weapon is not difficult at all.  In fact, you can find instructions for how to build them on the Internet.

In the future, electromagnetic weapons are going to become even more powerful and even easier to use.

Meanwhile, we are going to continue to become even more dependent on electricity and technology.

And of course even if there is never a major EMP attack against the United States, scientists tell us that it is only a matter of time before a massive solar storm fries the electrical grid.

I hope that you are getting ready while you still can.

    Good

    -There would be no Internet.
    Good.

    -Your phones would not work.
    Good

    -There would be no television.
    Great

    -There would be no radio.
    Bummer

    -ATM machines would be shut down.
    Good

    -There would be no banking.
    So that means there would be no bankers – FANTASTIC!

    Let me disagree about radios . First those HAM RADIO operators with older type of rigs (Radios) will be able to use them provided they have a power sourse (Most of us do ) By an older type of rig I am talking about those older rigs with tubes in them rather than micro- chips. On a side note a study was done about two years ago in a lab that hit an auto with three times the EMP of a nuke burst while the car was running , it shut down , the testers then shut the car off, then re-started the car and it ran fine. So I wonder if this is much a doo about nothing ?

      If you have a vehicle built before the ’80′s then you more than likely don’t have electronic ignition in it, an old farm truck or diesel tractor will do just fine, (park on top of an incline so you can roll it down to be able to “pop the clutch” to start it, if you need to)… it will run.. and if you have a gasoline and diesel supply in above ground tanks (gravity feed) you won’t need an electrical pump…if you have a horse or two then your even better off, ’cause if you run out of fuel a horse makes a good form of transport,.. plus if you grow your own food in a garden and have your own livestock, (chickens, cows, etc) you have your own food supply… also if you have small lanterns and a fireplace you can cook your own food,..and you’ll have heat in the winter… Most of us farmers and ranchers already HAVE all this stuff, and grew up using it everyday… and to think, most people make fun of “Redneck” type country folk.. you don’t need to be a “prepper” if your a countrified redneck….. AND you’ll already know how to use your guns and/or crossbow’s that you use for huntin’, so,.. you’ll already know how to protect yourself…. let’s see,… how’s that old country song by Hank Williams Jr’ go..?? “A Country Boy Can Survive”..If you’ve never heard it before, you need to.. (then think about it).. BUT then again….. if you live in a big city,… forget all this….’cause your pretty much screwed… you, more than likely won’t survive very long…..

    My question is what will happen to existing nuclear power plants in the U.S. if or when this happens? Will they overheat and explode, or will the EMP’s not affect them at all??

    • K

      They are supposed to be hardened against EMP. The problem is the fuel for back-up generators, is usually limited to about ten days. If everything else is down, getting additional fuel to them would become the problem. And yes no back-up generators running, meltdown.

      • http://www.wudndux.blogspot.com Tom B

        Actually, with ten days to plan, the reactors could be shut down in the correct manner. No melt down.

        I think, though, that the die off would peak much sooner than a year or even six weeks.

        With no power to run the extraction, purification, and water pumps, people would start dying in huge numbers about 3 days later, especially in the SW and south, and of course, most especially if the event occurred during the summer.

        People would necessarily walk to ponds, lakes, rivers and streams, where they would have to camp by water ever more contaminated with their own waste. Can’t walk that far? Die now. Can walk that far? Die later of cholera, typhoid, and starvation.

        Oh, Joy.

    This is absolute science fiction ….an temp will never happen !!!

    So what is the federal government doing to protect us against such a horrific disaster?

    Absolutely nothing.

    Surprise, Surprise. Amnesty is more important.

    THE POWER co.around america have fired all their plant operaters,only a few management are running everything,WHEN the order is given, they will turn off the power,and it won’t have nothing to do with any thing else…….they’ll just shut’er down..and everyone will be standing in the dark…your government has been planning this for a while….So keep listening to VOMIT VISION,they would never lie..americas are suckers…………

  • http://www.none arizona

    BETTER get close to the LORD,they plan to KILL everyone and take everything you own,with ALL the foreign military troops that are here,YOUR ENTIRE GOVERNMENT IS GUILTY OF TREASON…..remember you were warned,NOW GET READY or die…………

  • Ranger3/75

    Im less worried about a CME than a EMP because i fear man more than nature. If an EMP was set off over the country then get used to living out the movie Mad Max. It is a real possibility folks trust me on this one.

  • Ranger3/75

    Russia, China and North Korea are not our friends and never have been. The cold war never ended it just transformed. They all know a nuclear exchange is not survivable but a EMP strike is. If this happens then we are done.

    It’s time for a Wal-mart prepper food run.

    Here is what you can get (non perishable food) for about $160.00 at my local wal-Mart;

    40 cans of Vienna sausage
    7 big boxes of oat meal (Big, 2 pounds 12 oz.)
    27 cans of spaghetti and meat balls.
    74 Noodles and vegetables (like Cup O Noodles)
    25 cans of tuna
    80 Ramen Noodle Soup (no cup and no vegetables)
    60 bags of macaroni, 7 oz.
    13 cans of Progresso Soup

    Here is the story:

      you are supporting walmart? and trying to get others to support as well? oh, the hypocrisy.

      gmo-laden crap listed above. purchased at the store helping to bring down small towns and rural areas all over the country. wtf?!

  • JC Vaughan

    So, it’s population reduction you want, is it?

  • hello

    This is a pretty good doomsday scare. Unlikely to happen. They give too much coverage on even mainstream media. Likely just a distraction. Got to look for something else behind the scenes.

  • Steve

    won’t happen…nuclear detonation can only happen from the ground..plus the Sun must be in the right harmonics with the device

    nothing but fear mongering

    ON the X22Report, dave hoghes warned oboozo tried to set off an EMP over the west coast,but some military leaders stopped it,the russians and chinese are here and waiting for some event to happen,and it will,YOU BETTER BE READY,or more then likely your going to die or wind up in a FEMA DEATH CAMP…..get close to the LORD,and be saved,or take the MARK OF THE BEAST and die……………
