Title: ELECTRICAL MAGNETIC PULSE (EMP) BOMB
Post by: JuanDiego on February 05, 2013, 12:30:16 PM
I just heard part of a speech at the Heritage Foundation talking about how unprepared the US is for an EMP to hit us and how our enemies know how unprepared we are.  They said it would put us back into the 19th Century overnight.  If the bomb hit the east coast it would knock out 70% of the US.  No cars, no lights, no heat, etc.  The speaker was Michael Maloof talking about his recent book A Nation Forsaken.

This is what is on the Heritage Foundation site:

Quote
A few years ago, a congressional commission went into considerable depth on the consequences to our electricity-dependent infrastructures - not only to the power grid itself, but also to telecommunications, the banking and finance system, the transportation system that delivers our food and water and the fuel needed for our homes as well as the military systems that maintain our national security. Congress, however, has basically ignored its own commission report, wasting valuable time in confronting this critical threat.

Maloof argues that, while an electromagnetic pulse event on our civilian infrastructure could be serious, it can be managed if government at the federal, state and local levels gives appropriate priority to the preventative action that is possible to lessen the impact of an EMP event as well as to recover from it.

There's a fiction book that describes probably most accurately what would happen in the event of an EMP, "One Second After"

It's pretty readable. There isn't much the average person can do. Unless you're rural and have a subsistence farm of vegetables and animals and they graze and eat local foo(s) only that do not require longhaul trucking for delivery, you're so interdependent on electronic intrastructure you're pretty much out of luck.

You'd have to faraday 'cage' everything you wanted to remain functioning after such an event.


Most of even our defense infrastructure is no longer TEMPEST hardened post-Reagan

You don't know who to trust anymore.  
Maloof 's background is shaky at best, neck deep with Rumsfeld and the pro israel camp.  This info coming from him sounds like a psyop.

Ive looked into this and it is more or less what they say: we are woefully unprepared.

It would be chaos.

EMP? The sooner the better! That's exactly what the sheeple in this country and the world need... These idolaters of modern tech, and consumers of the illusion, need to be slapped with a hard reality which might awaken them to focusing on their true selves, the Lord, their family, and community. The sooner - the better :dancing-banana:

A bummer would be no more Cathinfo  :sad:

Oh, no more cars? MOST EXCELLENT  :dancing-banana: .... That is just another thing the sheep idolize - their metal coffins. I ride my bike 200-300 plus miles a week anyway. More people need to do the same.

Bare supermarket shelves?

An emp weapon would also mean no more being able to get to Mass. (And an estimated loss of 90% of the U.S. population)

Keep a battery/solar powered ham radio rig in that Faraday cage as cell phones/towers, repeaters, etc will be fried.

And worst of all - no fridge, no ice, no blenders = no Frozen Daiquiris  :faint:

Yes, I wholeheartedly agree!  This came to my attention years ago, and it could be quite drastic.
My point was that Maloof's background is not to be trusted, since he has a loooong history with the pro israel military industrail complex monsters.  That he and other gov't related tools are communicating this info seems like a psyop - to stir up lots of fear, and mentally prepare for the false flag emp that may be planned.
I'm extremely suspicious of anyone remotely tied to the gov't and/or israel.

  Living in the woods I have always tried to prepare. One never knows what might happen.  There are ways to preserve what you are storing too. Lok n lok containers to store flour, sugar, brown sugar. Recently I just finished using flour I have put into a lok n lock container four years ago~ thanks to placing several bay leaves into the container the flour was just as fresh as it was when I put it in there.  Digging out a root cellar if you have the land to do so also helps preseve potatoes, apples, onions, etc.
Fortunately we have a small creek that runs through our property. And when it rains we have a few more small creeks that run through our woods. Our well is fed by an underground spring and I was shown its origin by our excavator when he dug out our basement. We primarily heat the upper level of our home with a
Soapstone Woodstove and the lower level has an Amish Cook Stove. The latter heats/cooks with wood or coal. You can bake a 25 lbs turkey in it. It has a hot water coil as well as a resvior to store hot water. The latter makes 7 gallons of hot water an hour so in 7 hours you have 49 gallons of hot water just by running your stove to cook /heat...it heats 2000 sq ft nicely.  Over the years we purchased oil lamps for our home. That started on Long Island when everytime we had a storm in the early 1970's we lost power for several hours. We continue to collect oil lamps and have one for just about every room in the  house as well as a collection of candles.  Strike anywhere matches are the best.
We do have horses. So we have transportation as well. The thing we all must remember is that we are all in Gods' Holy Hands and it is up to Him what will happen to all of us.

 :dancing-banana:

I actually do care, which is why I'm ready and rearing for such a shut down of the electronics grid.  :dancing-banana:

Tough times are coming. The sheeple better prepare for it and learn to deal with it. They need to prepare themselves spiritually, of course, but also mentally and physically. This ain't no 2nd grade recess.

Even a localized EMP strike could take out the entire U.S. power grid because power stations are all interconnected, and damage would cascade through the system wiping out equipment that could not be replaced for at least 18 months. According to the “Report of the Commission to Assess the Threat to the United States from Electromagnetic Pulse (EMP) Attack,” an EMP attack “can damage or disrupt the infrastructure that supplies food to the population of the United States.” Supermarkets typically carry enough food to supply the local population for three days. Without electricity, Americans will starve. Less than two percent of Americans work on farms, according to the Commission report. “An attack that neutralized farming technology would depress U.S. food production.” The food distribution system is even more vulnerable.

The Commission report concludes: “Absolute deprivation of food, on average, will greatly diminish a person’s capacity for physical work within a few days. After 4 to 5 days without food, the average person will suffer from impaired judgment and have difficulty performing simple intellectual tasks. After 2 weeks without food, the average person will be virtually incapacitated. Death typically results after 1 or 2 months without food.”

In a continent-wide EMP attack, between one third and four-fifths of the population would die.

My research has led me to a frightening though plausible conclusion: Beginning in 1960, Russia and the United States became formally aware of the biggest material threat to modern civilization.

That threat is referred to as an electromagnetic pulse attack (EMP). An EMP is created by the detonation of a nuclear bomb over a geographical area which damages or destroys all of the electronic systems within the targeted area. In 1960, both the Soviet Union and the United States formalized plans to test nuclear weapons that would be able to bring about a paralyzing EMP against their enemies.[1] These tests would reveal the potential damage of an EMP which far surpassed scientific expectations.

In 1961 and 1962, the Soviet Union launched a series of nuclear bombs over a large geographical area in Kazakhstan whose infrastructure was heavily electrified. The series of test launches was known as K-3 or Test 184.[2] Reports were later issued which revealed that the civilian infrastructure of Kazakhstan was severely damaged. Major underground power lines failed, diesel generators malfunctioned, radar was disabled and telephone lines were shut down. All overvoltage protectors fired, and all of the fuses on the power line were blown.[3] Even with the usage of relatively smaller nuclear bombs in these tests, debilitating damage was achieved.[4]  

On July 9, 1962, the United States also performed an EMP test known as “Starfish Prime” by launching a high-altitude nuclear bomb over Johnston Island in the mid-Pacific Ocean.[5] It was discovered that electromagnetic fields were adversely affected in Honolulu, Hawaii almost 900 miles away. Streetlights were extinguished, microwave communications were disrupted and burglar alarms were sounded off. A number of orbiting satellites were also destroyed. While these effects were not overly dramatic, the test burst was very distant from Hawaii[6] and electronic technology has become much more sensitive to EMP since 1962.[7]  Moreover, the thermonuclear warhead (so-called “hydrogen bomb”) used in Starfish was very inefficient at producing EMP. Nevertheless, the effects of the blast surprised the experts and confirmed that our critical infrastructures, including the electrical power grid itself, would be subject to incalculable damage in an effective EMP attack.[8] In other words, the potential damage of an EMP attack became “clearer” with these nuclear tests beginning in 1960 – the year Our Lady commanded the Third Secret to be revealed.  

Because almost all aspects of modern American life are run by electricity, primarily through computer chips (food storage, water distribution, utilities, transportation, communication, financial services), the United States is extremely vulnerable to this type of attack. This vulnerability has increased significantly over the last 40 years as more and more of our infrastructure has become increasingly dependent upon electronics. Moreover, based on Congressional reports, we are currently defenseless in most aspects against such warfare.[9] The United States Congress formed a Commission in 2001 to examine the impact of EMP on our country, with particular focus on the Soviet and American testing of 1962. The Commission concluded:  

Several potential adversaries have or can acquire the capability to attack the United States with a high-altitude nuclear weapon-generated electromagnetic pulse (EMP). A determined adversary can achieve an EMP attack capability without having a high level of sophistication. EMP is one of a small number of threats that can hold our society at risk of catastrophic consequences. EMP will cover the wide geographic region within line of sight to the nuclear weapon. It has the capability to produce significant damage to critical infrastructures and thus to the very fabric of US society, as well as to the ability of the United States and Western nations to project influence and military power.”[10]

Within seconds of a full-blown EMP attack against our country, millions of Americans would die instantly – in planes that would fall from the sky, in cars that would malfunction, and in hospitals whose life-supporting systems would shut down.[11] The rest who are not prepared for such an attack would eventually die either of starvation or disease, or at the hands of hunger-crazed citizens or enemy invaders.[12] The effects would be more immediate in populated areas, with survivors frantically attempting to escape to the country in search of food and protection. Information sharing would cease as nearly all radio and television programs would go off the air, further paralyzing our nation with fear of the unknown. Financial systems would shut down and American currency would become worthless. Our country would sink into physical and spiritual darkness beyond all imagination and comprehension.  

Within hours of a successful attack, city riots would precipitate and stores would be looted for food before it rotted.[13] Killers and rapists would escape from prisons and rain terror upon their victims. After only a month or two, there would be a proliferation of infectious disease, mass-murder and suicide, and starving people would resort to cannibalism, some even eating their own children. If the attack occurred in the winter, millions would also freeze to death. Under any scenario, our military would be paralyzed, as electronically governed aircraft, tanks, submarines and weaponry would no longer function and communications would almost completely break down.[14] We would be unable to successfully defend against the inevitable foreign invasion. It would be a literal hell on Earth. It is the most horrific and terrifying scenario that could ever be conceived by the human mind. As Pope John Paul I said, “The secret; it’s terrible.”[15] And it could be the conditional chastisement revealed by Our Lady in the Third Secret of Fatima – a chastisement that could befall us if the Pope does not consecrate Russia in time.

At Akita, Our Lady warned of “a terrible punishment on all humanity. It will be a punishment greater than the deluge, such as one will have never seen before. Fire will fall from the sky and will wipe out a great part of humanity, the good as well as the bad.”[18] In an EMP attack, fire does indeed fall from the sky through the nuclear explosion that creates the damaging current of positive ions, resulting in the eventual indiscriminate loss of life in its wake. At Akita, Our Lady also revealed, “The survivors will envy the dead.” This would be the case if survivors were imprisoned in a world of physical and mental torture with no way to escape – the inevitable consequence of an EMP attack.
