“Super EMP” Capable of Disabling Power Grid Across Lower 48 States

“Super EMP” Capable of Disabling Power Grid Across Lower 48 States

For many years U.S. Intelligence agencies believed that North Korea’s nuclear weapons program was a failure due to the low explosive yield of their tests. According to EMPact America’s President and former CIA nuclear weapons analyst Dr. Peter Vincent Pry, this is not the case:

North Korea’s last round of tests, conducted in May 2009, appear to have included a “super-EMP” weapon, capable of emitting enough gamma rays to disable the electric power grid across most of the lower 48 states, says Dr. Peter Vincent Pry, a former CIA nuclear weapons analyst and president of EMPact America, a citizens lobbying group.

North Korea’s nuclear tests have been dismissed as failures by some analysts because of their low explosive yield. But Dr. Pry believes they bore the “signature” of the Russian-designed “super-EMP” weapon, capable of emitting more gamma radiation than a 25-megaton nuclear weapon.

Pry believes the U.S. intelligence community was expecting North Korea to test a first generation implosion device with an explosive yield of 10 to 20 kilotons, similar to the bomb the U.S. exploded over Nagasaki in 1945. He said, “So when they saw one that put off just three kilotons, they said it failed. That is so implausible.”

Since EMP is a line-of-sight weapon, detonating one of these nukes about 300 miles above Nebraska could end life as we know it in America in about one second.


While North Korea may be the latest country to test such a weapon, it is clear that the technology has been available for nearly 50 years, and it has since been leaked to rogue nations, and perhaps rogue terror and shadow elements with the financing, capability and wherewithal to use it:

Such a weapon — equal to a massive solar flare such as the “solar maxima” predicted by NASA to occur in 2016 — poses “substantial risk to equipment and operation of the nation’s power grid and under extreme conditions could result in major long term electrical outages,” said Joseph McClelland of the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission in Senate testimony last month.

Pry said that a group of Russian nuclear weapons scientists approached him in 2004 when he served as staff director of the Commission to Assess the Threat to the United States from Electromagnetic Pulse (EMP) Attack, to warn the United States that the technology to make that weapon “had leaked” to North Korea, and possibly to Iran.

When we talk about potential terrorist action against the United States, we discuss this in the sphere of any organization, be it Al Queda, state sponsored, or shadow government related. These weapons exist, and they are, without a doubt, the single biggest threat to the United States of America.

As we’ve previously reported, such a weapon, or group of weapons strategically detonated at lower altitudes, would completely wipe out the entire US power grid, vehicles, computers, cell phones, and anything else with an electric circuit.

The fall out would be nothing short of apocalyptic.

In July of 2010 EMPact America published an overview of the EMP 2010 Conference in which they discussed the threat EMP posed to the nation and the fact that very few people understand how great and imminent it is:

…An electromagnetic pulse, or EMP, is a super energetic radio wave that’s immediately harmless to people, but it’ll burn out all the critical electronic systems that sustain human economic activity and human life across vast areas, including the entire continental United States.

-Dr. Peter Vincent Pry, President, EMPact America

The Center for Security Policy, in a report issued last year, has estimated that in the event of a wide-scale EMP attack on the United States, as many as nine out of ten Americans would be dead within one year:

“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,” said Frank Gaffney, president of the Center for Security Policy. “And that is exactly what I believe the Iranians are working towards.”

It doesn’t matter who it is. What does matter is that very few Americans are prepared for such an outlier.

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.

For those interested in learning more about the after-effects of EMP and several different scenarios in which you may find yourself, we strongly recommend reading / watching the following:Conquering_resize1

With the information gained you’ll theoretically have a working knowledge of the supplies you’ll need for extended grid-down situations. Additionally, each story deals with a slightly different setting, so you’ll have an understanding of the organizational and defense requirements necessary to secure and manage an individual property, small community neighborhood, and an entire town.

Power outages happen all the time. But you’ll know an EMP has been detonated (or we’ve been hit by a massive solar event) if the power to your house goes off, cars are not starting, and your cell phone won’t turn on. If that happens, take a deep breath, say a prayer, and put the supplies and knowledge you’ve acquired to work, because it won’t be long before the golden horde wrecks havoc.

Video: The Death Of King Dollar: “This Could Happen As Soon As 2018”

The Death Of King Dollar

Despite continued assurances about America’s economic strength and global influence, scores of nations around the world are rapidly divesting themselves from their dependency on the world’s reserve currency as a mechanism of exchange. The key players, Russia and China, are actively developing entirely new systems of trade with numerous partners that include countries from the middle east, Asia and South America.

These major strategic moves, trade agreements and partnerships are being marginalized by mainstream American news sources, or are simply ignored and never shared with the public. The end result for Americans’ way of life will be nothing short of disastrous as the eventual outcome leads to an implosion of our economy and the destruction of one of the most influential currencies in human history.

Watch: The Death of King Dollar (via Crush The Street)

Interest rates could easily rise high enough that the U.S. government would have to spend half of its income just to pay for the interest on previous borrowing. This is why the Fed will say and do anything to keep interest rates low.

Many large countries have been making major moves in the last five years to stop transacting in U.S. dollars.

King Dollar is truly dying.

In addition to this, less U.S. oil imports means less dollars going abroad, which means more dollars are coming back inside of the United States. This will inevitably cause additional inflation that has been overdue, as America’s money supply has more than doubled in the last ten years.

Estimates put more than half of U.S. dollars as being held abroad. It will be devastating to the value and stability of U.S. currency and domestic economy when these dollars return.

The reality is the U.S. will surely lose its reserve currency status… Some economic analysts are even saying this could happen as soon as 2018. There are an infinite number of unexpected shakeups that could happen around a dollar collapse, from the U.S. backing its currency with oil to a major war breaking out.

As noted by the free report from Crush The Street:

“The world is rapidly changing and the U.S. dollar has enjoyed the benefits of being used as the world’s reserve currency, but history tells us that things will change and evidence is showing that it will likely be sooner rather than later.”

Indeed, the time to prepare for a coming global paradigm shift is now.

Map: Areas Of Probable Power System Collapse: “130 Million Lacking Power For Several Years”

Map Areas Of Probable Power System Collapse 130 Million Lacking Power For Several Years

In just the last twelve months Congressional members and top level administrators at the Department of Homeland Security have warned of threats to the national power grid so serious that should they occur life in America as we have come to know it would change almost instantly.

Former DHS head Janet Napolitano, in a letter to her successor, advised that “a massive and serious cyber attack” on the US Homeland is imminent and that a “natural disaster — the likes of which the nation has never seen — is also likely on its way.” This was followed up by a comment from House Homeland Security Committee senior member Yvette Clarke (D-NY) who noted that, “the likelihood of a severe geo-magnetic event capable of crippling our electric grid is 100%.”

Couple those threats with the realistic possibility of a rogue or state-sponsored attack on America by way of a super electro-magnetic pulse weapon, and the odds of a widespread American Blackout increase dramatically.

With our complete dependence on the power grid to maintain the regular flow of commerce, communications, and emergency services, even a short-term grid-down event could lead to serious consequences.

According to a report commissioned by the Department of Homeland Security which cites data from the Oak Ridge National Laboratory, the infrastructure supporting our power grid is so outdated and vulnerable that an attack or natural disaster could lead to an outage scenario of unprecedented scale.

If you live in or around any of these areas you can expect a societal breakdown within 72 hours or less – and with traffic systems inoperable and roadways likely jammed, there’ll likely be no way out.


The core of our grid – what makes it tick – are the transformers that pass power from one node to the next. These often weigh in the hundreds of tons. Most are no longer produced in the United States, so any damage would require the importation of parts or complete units from China. If one or two go down, the outage is manageable. But a cascading collapse resulting from extreme electrical surges across our power lines, such as those originating from an EMP attack or solar flare, could result in scores of transformers being put out of service simultaneously.

There are roughly 300 of these mega-transformers that make up the backbone of America’s electrical infrastructure. At current world production rates it could take anywhere from 12 – 18 months to manufacture and deliver a new unit if it is destroyed.

As noted by The Daily Sheeple:

The report has generated great interest in government and the public, largely owing to the projected scenario of catastrophic damage, including:

– More than 300 EHV transformers destroyed
– 130 million people lacking power for several years until damaged high-voltage transformers are replaced
– 1-2 trillion dollars of economic loss.


All things considered, the restoration of power across the United States in such a scenario would be 4 to 10 years.

Chris Carrington of The Daily Sheeple highlights the fall-out and what we can expect if the threat to our power grid is ever realized:

We have become so reliant on electricity in the last 200 years, it’s difficult to imagine life without it. Those who rely on refrigerated medications would be hard hit within hours of the power going off, as would those who rely on regular oxygen cylinder deliveries to their homes.

The usual back up power in hospitals is 72 hours. After that life support machines and operating rooms will cease to function.

Pumps at gas stations will no longer dispense fuel affecting everything from the family car to the food supply.

Water treatment and pumping stations will cease to function, again this will affect a wide range of services we take for granted, drinking water, sanitation and even firefighting will be limited or non-existant for millions. Contestation over water in lakes and rivers will be a source of ongoing conflict for years after the event.

Many factories that make parts for transformers will not be able to do so, leaving the United States at the mercy of foreign powers for transformers and parts. (If those countries have not been affected by the event themselves.)

The very fabric of the only society we know will come to a grinding halt within a week of the grid going down.

We know it would be mere days before panic, looting and rioting took hold. Law and order would fall apart.

Based on previous studies, we know that out of those 130 million people east of the Mississippi who would be affected by such an outage, 117 million would be dead within a year.

Unless you have nearly unlimited financial resources, stockpiling supplies for a four to ten year grid down scenario is pretty much out of the question. But you can take the brunt of that first year and beyond if you prepare ahead of time.

Get Gold Now: “I Remember 1980… They Were Lined Up Around the Block”

Get Gold Now - “I Remember 1980… They Were Lined Up Around the Block”

Mainstream financial analysts want us to believe that gold’s unprecedented rise throughout the last decade is almost over – that it is just another bubble soon to pop.

Central banks, state-sponsored economists and many well respected high dollar investors have all tried to convince us that there is no more upside for precious metals, often arguing that the 5,000 year-old relics are but worthless metals – not money.

The interesting thing is they’ve been saying that repeatedly, since before the financial crisis was ever recognized. Yet, gold has continued to rise unabated.

In the following Future Money Trends interview, well respected investment analyst Jay Taylor of MiningStocks.com discusses this powerful trend in gold, the government manipulation of the financial and economic system, the importance of diversifying your wealth, why precious metals are a good investment, some ideas for investors, and the signs you’ll see when gold does finally become a “bubble.”

A lot of the establishment would have us believe gold is already in a bubble.
But if you look at the supply of gold above ground relative to the amount of money that’s been created, it’s money and it’s the bond market that’s in a bubble.
Yes, I suppose that one day that could happen.
I remember 1980, when gold went from $35 a few years earlier to $850.
I remember that time there was panic buying of gold by people in the streets of New York City. They were lined up around the block… to buy gold and Krugerrands at that time.
I don’t see anything like that now.
If I walk down the streets of New York and ask people, “do you think you should have five or ten percent of your portfolio in gold,” most people would say, “No, no way. That’s ridiculous. It doesn’t pay you any interest. Why would you own the stupid stuff?”
So, I think we’re a long way away from that bubble.
I think people in the rest of the world and don’t trust their politicians to the extent that Americans do, are buying gold.
Certainly the Chinese are…

I suppose that we could see a bubble at some time.
I suppose that, as we saw in 1980, there will be huge amounts of people that finally lose confidence and throw in the towel on the policy makers.
And, then there will be a rush to gold like we’ve never seen before.
And when people start to insist on delivery of their gold… for the huge amounts of paper that’s out there in the futures markets… And if those people on the buy side want to take delivery… the price is going to go to the moon. I really believe that.
Via: FutureMoneyTrends.com

As an asset of last resort, precious metals like gold and silver have always been worth something. With the fiscal and monetary policies currently under implementation around the world, along with literally trillions of dollars in unserviceable debt, it wouldn’t take much to set off a panic buying spree in gold.

In the last 30 days, since the Newtown school shootings, panic buying has left gun stores across the country with nothing on their shelves and back-orders of six months or more. Tens of thousands of Americans have been lining up outside of firearms shops and gun shows, grabbing up anything they can get their hands on.

That’s what it looks like when the entire consciousness of a nation suddenly shifts.

That’s what it looks like when hundreds of millions of dollars of capital are rapidly reallocated.

One day in the not too distant future, the people of this country and around the world are going to come to the realization that our governments, central banks and state-sponsored financial institutions have been playing a shell game – that it’s all been one grand manipulation.

Confidence in our government’s ability to manage this crisis will be lost.

When that happens, as Jay Taylor notes, “there will be a rush to gold like we’ve never seen before.” Precious metals dealers and coin shops all over the globe will sell out of inventory.

As we’ve seen with popular assault rifles, ammunition and accessories recently, this shift of capital will lead to almost immediate price increases, and subsequently more public interest and panic buying.

There will be a bubble in gold – perhaps one of the biggest asset bubbles we’ve ever seen.

But we’re not there yet.

When you see lines of anxious shoppers waiting around the block to get in to your local bullion exchange and when stocks in exploration and mining companies jump hundreds of percentage points in just a few weeks time, then you’ll know we’ve reached bubble levels.

If you haven’t acquired some gold and silver assets by then, it’ll be too late.

Get gold now.

Prepare for What Is Coming: “There is a Very Present Danger that is Facing Every American”

A warning from Charlie McGrath, founder of Wide Awake News:

You are under assault. There is a very present danger that is facing every American citizen who listens to me right now. Every citizen of this planet who listens to me right now. You are under attack.

This is an assault on you, the American people. This is an assault on your intelligence and an assault on your freedom.

It’s about a complete and total dismantling of a nation, a dismantling of a Constitution, and an implementation of control from on high, [from a] dominant financial authority overtaking this planet.

It’s not coincidence that Department of Homeland Security and the government in general is picking up all kinds of riot gear.

It’s because they know the collapse is coming.

They know the engineered collapse that has been papered over and caused 100 million people to be on the government dole, that has caused trillions of dollars of our future wealth being given to a bunch of bankers.

They know the day of reckoning is coming, and when it does they want 30,000 drones in the air, they want thousands of riot-ready police force on the street, and they want you bickering with your neighbor because you voted Romney, or you voted Obama.

Get it through your head, folks. If you dont’t understand it by now – time is running out rapidly. You need to understand. There is no change coming with Romney. There is no change coming in term two with Obama.

They dance to the tune of the same people who have not been prosecuted or brought to justice for destroying this planet’s economy.

There are people dying tonight because of what has happened to this economy on this planet.

 (Sourced via SGT Report ; David Icke)

Mass electronic surveillance systems, tens of thousands of drones, riot police, the training of military assets for domestic policing, and the introduction of legislation and executive orders to  respond to widespread national emergencies through martial law declarations are all pointing to the same thing.

Elements within the government of the United States and the cabals that have been engineering this move towards global governance are keenly aware that the system as it exists today is under extreme strain, and the day of reckoning is coming.

Prepare for it, because it will be like nothing we’ve ever experienced in our lifetimes. As our existing paradigm continues to shift we must understand that it will be plagued with starvation, mass rioting and bloodshed.

As Charlie McGrath notes, there are wars being fought all over the globe right now – and scores of men, women and children are dying daily. Millions of protesters have taken to the streets in recent months on every corner of earth as the world they have come to know collapses around them. Tens of millions of Americans are, like their counterparts in Europe and Asia, struggling just to put food on the table.

If the evidence that is right before your eyes doesn’t convince you that a mass destabilization is taking place in real time, then we don’t know what will.

The government is and has been preparing. So should you.

Time is running out.

Food Stamp Diet: Eat Right and Get Fit!

The absurdity of government knows no bounds.

Via Infowars:

If the Supreme Court upholding Obamacare left Americans with any doubts we are officially living in a debt-fueled social welfare state, the Obama Administration recently spent three million dollars to convince us we will all live healthier lives if we sign up for food stamps.

The U.S. Department of Agriculture has been running a Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) propaganda campaign for several months now. Primarily aimed at Hispanics, the elderly, and the working poor and unemployed, ads include radio segments claiming that food stamps help beneficiaries “eat right”:

Woman #1: “I wonder how she stays so fit, what’s her secret?”
Woman #2: “Well she told me that food stamp benefits help her eat right, and she stays active too.”

Video via The Daily Sheeple:

For years, First Lady Michelle Obama has been promoting fitness and healthy eating, and now with tax payer help she may finally achieve her goal.

Based on the government’s new advertisements, one would assume that food stamps provide enough benefits for a family accepting SNAP assistance to purchase high quality, low fat, chemical-free foods that may include items such as organic milk and cheese, fruits, vegetables, fresh baked whole grain bread and nuts.

For the realists out there, who understand that food stamps provide about $500 a month to a family of four, and that “healthy foods” actually cost significantly more than Frankenfoods loaded with high fructose corn syrup, sodium and a host of other preservatives and FDA approved chemicals, it’s safe to say that it’s near to impossible to maintain a healthy diet with existing government food rations.

If you’ve visited your local grocery store lately you know very well that $500 per month (especially for a family with children) will allow you to purchase only the basic essentials, and usually the highly discounted foods. And those foods are often the least healthy option available.

With the price of food steadily rising as a result of inflation and the entrance of emerging economies into the middle class, low income Americans will continue to suffer at grocery counters, finding it more and more difficult to acquire high quality health foods.

One thing has become quite evident: As people are economically forced to consume more low quality, high fat foods, the rate of obesity in America continues to rise.

These statistics, coupled with the seemingly never ending increases in nutritional assistance participation, suggests that food stamps may actually have the opposite effect as what is stated in the Department of Agriculture’s advertisements.

Whether the anecdotal evidence above is indicative of a long-term trend or not, we can safely assume that during President Bush’s term, and more so under President Obama, Americans have become increasingly dependent on government assistance for food.

President Obama is certainly breaking records when it comes to the impoverishment of the American middle and working classes.

This is what he must have meant when, during his 2008 campaign speeches, he told us that he would fundamentally change America.
