I fear for my nation.
Of all the existential threats we face, there is nothing more deadly serious than an attack against America via an electromagnetic pulse or EMP, perpetrated against America by one of our many sworn enemies.  
Who would love nothing better than to render us helpless while they attack Israel than for instance Iran?  Can we not imagine, especially in light of what is happening in the world today for Russia or China or possibly both teaming up to seize America?  Can you not envision Barack Obama planning on serving us up on a silver platter. Is this why Obama has passed so many executive orders centered around Martial Law and our government purchasing enough ammo to quell a war inside of America? Regardless, the technology is available today to protect our grid from such a threat and there is no excuse why we are not. Something is seriously wrong and I refuse to chalk it up to bureaucracy.
This should concern every American, liberal or conservative, black or white, rich or poor. 

Earlier this week I had a chance to listen to an interview with Cynthia Ayers that honestly chilled me to the bone. 
Cynthia Ayers knows what she is talking about and is considered a National security expert. Ayers is currently Deputy to the Executive Director of the Task Force on National and Homeland Security and a member of the EMP Coalition. She formerly served as Vice President of EMPact Amercia after having retired from the National Security Agency with over 38 years of federal service — a period that included 8 years at the U.S. Army War College’s Center for Strategic Leadership.


Here is part of the interview between host Rick Wiles and Cynthia Ayers:

RW: What are we talking about when we say an EMP attack?

CA: Well an electromagnetic pulse attack, very basically it can be generated using a high altitude nuclear blast.  It could be kiloton size or megaton size anywhere from I believe 30 kilometers above the earths surface to about 500 kilometers, um, 300 miles. Interestingly just to throw this in 300 miles above the earths surface over the eastern half of the United States is where North Korea now has a satellite that is supposedly tumbling out of control, um, back and forth across the eastern half United States and a satellite can hold a small nuclear weapon of just the right size for an advanced EMP weapon. 

EMP is essentially highly charged particles that interact with the atmosphere to, um, in affect it literally melts transformers it destroys electronics it would essentially take us back to
the 1800′s and possibly even the 1600′s if we were hit with an EMP and that’s because we would lose
communications, transportation, all electronics, obviously heating and anything in your house that has like electronics, the food supply and virtually anything that depends on electricity which is it just about everything in our modern day society.  We would become a very localized society, it would be  little communities taking care of themselves if they can’t do that without being overrun by hordes looking for food, and it would be essentially hell on earth. 
RW: It sounds like a Mad Max movie to me.
CW: It could very well be.  A lot of people may be familiar with the TV show that’s going on now “Revolution” which takes it a little bit to the extreme in the sci-fi realm I think but in terms

of war lords and things like that it’s it’s not so far out of the question. 
RW: Well you know a lot of Americans when you tell them about the potential of an EMP attack their first response is well if it happens you know we’ll fix it we’re America.  Tell us why that won’t be possible. 
CW:  Well mainly because of the transformers that are used, they are the critical part of our electronic grid.  We have almost two thousand of these across the U.S., I think sixteen hundred or more anyway.  The core of the critical infrastructure is made up of about 350- 360 large building size transformers.  Each one of these has hundreds of thousands of people depending on their continued operation to get their electricity. Well these things are only made in two countries overseas, we don’t make them. These are the great big ones.  It takes about eighteen months to two years generally to make them, each one of them is unique so having spares, and they are millions and millions of dollars, having spares is virtually impossible, they are re-made by having people come over from these foreign countries and um, program, essentially re-program how to make them.  They are each unique and each one of them has specific, uh, specifications that have to be re-done and they are hand-wired overseas so it takes, you can figure eighteen months to two years for each one.  I understand that they can only really do one or two at a time, um, and if we were to lose 350 of these things or virtually the entire core it would take a long, long time. The National Academy of Sciences came up with an estimate of 4 to 10 years that we would be without electricity if this were to happen.  They say this is a conservative estimate and so does the EMP Commission mainly because if we lose them through for instance a great geo-magnetic storm which is another possibility that I haven’t discussed yet, other countries would probably be affected if we were to lose that many.  But if we were to lose them through an EMP attack then there is probably a lot of other things going on in the world that will take other countries attention away from helping us. 
RW: Which countries are the leaders in producing these units?
CW:  As I remember, Germany and South Korea.  There could be other countries that are ramping up for this, but I don’t know, I haven’t really been keeping up with that particular aspect. 
RW: Okay, but they could have problems of their own during a crisis like this.
CW: Or it could just be to their interest not to intervene.  As a matter fact I wrote this scenario where an EMP was used against us Iran during the Ahmadinejad “reign”, so to speak, as a first strike option

and first strike being first strike in a global war or simply against the west where the West itself
could be taken down in less than a half a day.
RW: So Germany and South Korea could be threatened “if you assist the United States in its recovery you’re going to get a dose of the same medicine”?
CW: Right, right are and they may have already gotten a dose by that time anyway. 
Hope that caught your attention, if not, absorb these estimates from Ayers:
 ”The EMP Commission noted that conservatively 66% or two thirds of our population would be gone within 365 days from things like exposure to climate problems and starvation and chaos, etc.  But one of the EMP Commission members noted it would be more like 90%. 
How the globalists would rejoice in decimating a large part of the American population…a population that they see as destructive to the land, while simultaneously preserving the land itself.  I understand that we have submarines around the globe armed with nuclear warheads and so we would still be a great threat militarily and have some protection.  But there would be little or no need for a nation to attack us, as time, a very short amount of time would see our population die-off significantly.  How loud would the cries be for help, any help and at any cost?
In the meantime, what is today’s Congress doing to protect ourselves from this imminent threat?
There is a bill before Congress introduced in June of 2013 called the “Shield” act, this needs to pass TODAY.  The world is getting no less dangerous and an attack on America of this kind could come at anytime.  Nine months in Congress is simply ridiculous.  Nine days is too long.
You can take a look at this bill here:  
I want to encourage readers to go to for more information on this legislation and how you can get involved to put pressure on lawmakers to pass this law today.

      GOOD. That would set the People FREE and discomboobulate the NWO

      • Dustdevil

        Anonymous, how in the world do you get ‘blind, in the dark, with no means of feeding or providing for yourselves’ as free? How does it discombobulate the NWO, when they planned it while sitting in their London-Rothschild flats, before boarding their private jets for their 100,000 acre palatial estates in South America.

        I am sure, however, that the NWO is glad you see it like that Anonymous. It makes it so much easier for them if you cheer them on, while they put chains on your ankles, so you will tend their gardens for them – should they let you continue on as a ‘useless eater’. You see, in their game-plan, you are either the indentured servant for them, or you don’t deserve to live and consume their scarce resources.

        Destroying America is all part of the plan of depopulating their ‘farm-and-garden’ area and leaving it to mega-agra to keep providing food for them. Now, explain to me how shutting down our power grid affects their plans in any way? Don’t be a simpleton, and play into their plans – see it for what it is.

      80% are predicted to starve to death in the first year. The 4 horsemen will ride.

      What about the 20% left?

      They will be rounded up as slaves and taken to other countries.


      We are being punished for our sins. Gay abomination, illegal sodomite negro and his transvestite wife being illegal rulers like some kind of pagan Babylonian deity.

      WOW, what a non-technical LIE! The first paragraphs were interesting, until I hit that technical data and saw how erroneous it was. 2000 transformers in America? LOL, there are more than that in most individual town neighborhoods. You know those gray cylinders on the telephone poles outside your house? You know, where each house seems to have one of those ‘trashcan-sized’ gray things on each pole about 20-feet up in the air? Yeah, well, each one of those is a power transformer stepping 8000 volts down to 220-volts. There are over 100-MILLION of them in the U.S.! THAT IS THE NUMBERS NIGHTMARE of an EMP hitting! The bigger problem is that those things aren’t made in America anymore, but China – and you know if China is the one to fire on us (along with Russia), I highly doubt they are going to care to replace those they blow up – at least easily or quickly.

      As for ‘the core of the infrastructure being based on 350-360 building sized transformers’, what the ‘creative-liar’ really meant was that there are over 400,000 freight-car sized 3-phase transformer groups with comparable sized bus gear, that power a majority of America’s remaining infrastructure and businesses, and if these are damaged, it could take up to 25-YEARS to replace them, as long as those who fire upon us aren’t the same ones that build them.

      People, if a mega-tonnage EMP device hits America, that is the end. There is NO RECOVERY from it. You aren’t going back to the medieval ages, you are going back to circa 500, the heart of the DARK AGES, and you are going to beg for a dead body to chew on. Would any nation be so insane as to cripple us that badly as to literally end modern life for the next generation, just to win a war?

      I don’t know. Tell me when you see them move our industry, jobs and businesses overseas, and I’ll tell you – that’s a warning sign. When you see a foreign usurper praising one world order and saying that he foresees a time in our nations near-future when we won’t lead the way and our people won’t be smart anymore; let me know and I’ll tell you that we are in a world of trouble. When you see a quarter of our nation without jobs while the government drops our borders and begs for foreigners to come in, while trying by all means to destroy our Constitution, moment-by-moment, and I’ll say one last time – it isn’t the medieval you should fear – it’s the millennium-long Dark Ages around the next bend you should be terrified of.

      “I fear for my nation.
      Of all the existential threats we face, there is nothing more deadly serious than an attack against America via an electromagnetic pulse or EMP, perpetrated against America by one of our many sworn enemies.”

      Yes, of course we all know it’s all about America. But really, would the world ever get that lucky?

      As for your many sworn enemies, if you don’t like having them, stop making them. Just a suggestion of course.

      Did you know that if everyone stopped paying and or subscribing to corporate world, they would go broke and out of business?

      It’s up to you to decide whose side you on, it’s not like there are no options.. Corporation world with it’s private sector tax called profit to feed an army of parasites who give nothing back in return, or the future, our kids and grandkids.
