Amerigeddon: Are You Ready For The Chaos That Will Ensue When The Power Grid Is Brought Down?

Share on FacebookTweet about this on TwitterPin on PinterestShare on Google+Share on LinkedInShare on StumbleUponEmail this to someone

Electromagnetic Pulse Attack - Creative CommonsWhat would America look like with absolutely no electricity?  Could you survive in a world with no lights, no cell phones, no computers, no televisions, no ATMs, no cash registers and no refrigerators?  Such a world is not as far away as you might think.  A very powerful nuclear blast directly over the center of the continental United States could potentially fry electronic equipment from coast to coast, and it would take months or even years to fully restore power.  During that time, the entire country would be plunged into chaos and experts tell us that tens of millions of Americans would die.  But even if we are never attacked by a nuclear weapon in that manner, scientists assure us that it is inevitable that a massive electromagnetic blast from the sun will produce a similar result someday anyway.  In fact, back in 1859 a giant solar storm that came to be known as “the Carrington Event” fried telegraph machines all across North America and Europe.  If a similar event happened today, life as we know it would be brought to an abrupt halt, and chaos would ensue from coast to coast.

In two days, a bold new movie will be released in theaters that portrays what the aftermath of such an event would look like in this country.  It is entitled “AMERIGEDDON”, and it was directed by Mike Norris, the son of Chuck Norris.  You can view the official trailer for the film right here

I wish that more movies like this would come out, because most of what Hollywood produces these days is absolute garbage.  Our entertainment-addicted society needs films like this that educate and inform, and I hope that as many Americans as possible get a chance to see it because this threat is very real.

In 2001, Congress established a commission to study the EMP threat, and those on the commission examined this problem quite extensively for a number of years.  In 2008, members of the commission reported to Congress that they had come to the conclusion that the consequences of such an event would be absolutely catastrophic for this nation

In 2008, the commission warned that “a high altitude nuclear explosion is one of a small number of threats that can hold our society at risk of catastrophic consequences.” If such an attack were to cause a nationwide blackout lasting as long as a year, up to 90 percent of the American people could die due to starvation, disease and societal collapse.

Personally, I think that the 90 percent figure is too high.

But what if it was just 50 percent of all Americans that died?  We are still talking about the most horrific disaster in U.S. history by a very wide margin, and it would essentially mean the end of the Republic.

So what has Congress done about this threat?

Next to nothing, and this has many of the experts quite upset.

One of them is former CIA analyst Peter Vincent Pry.  He now serves as the executive director of the EMP Task Force on National and Homeland Security, and he recently had the following to say about the threat that we are potentially facing

Ours is an electronic civilization.  Electricity runs everything, including the economy.  Electricity sustains the lives of 320 million Americans.

Terrorists could inflict “The greatest injury on the greatest number” by attacking the national electric grid and blacking-out all the life sustaining critical infrastructures.

A nationwide blackout would, in effect, turn the “off switch” for the United States.  A terror blackout that lasts one year could kill so many people and cause such chaos that the lights might never come back on.

No less than two congressional commissions, the EMP Commission (2008) and the Strategic Posture Commission (2009) and numerous independent studies, including the recent books Lights Out and Blackout Wars, warn that an attack on the grid is an existential threat. A terror blackout could have such catastrophic consequences as to challenge the continued existence of our civilization.

And remember, no attack is even necessary in order for the power grid to be brought down.  In fact, most Americans have absolutely no idea that our planet barely missed being fried by a massive EMP burst from the sun in both 2012 and 2013.  Those two “near misses” were both extremely close, and if either of them had hit us directly you would not be reading this article today.

So please help spread the word about this new movie.  Here is some more information about it that comes directly from the official website

AMERIGEDDON, coming to theaters nationwide May 13, 2016, has been described as “the movie the establishment doesn’t want you to see.” Showing what happens when a not-so-future U.S. government conspires with the United Nations to stage an attack on the energy grid, AMERIGEDDON depicts a country ruled by martial law in which citizens are stripped of their constitutional rights and their guns. A group of patriots fight back and rescue the country from slipping into irreversible chaos.

AMERIGEDDON’s release in an election year is not coincidental. The film illustrates a dystopian future all patriots must guard against and is a call to action to preserve the Second Amendment and stop executive rule by fiat. Director Mike Norris, son of Chuck Norris, asks for like-minded Americans to support the film.

“The fact that a recent poll showed a majority of Americans are enraged with the federal government points to a frenzy of unrest with the dictatorial way in which our country has been run,” said Norris. “My family has long been involved in protecting the rights of Americans. We are concerned about the future and and see this film as a call to action. We urge people to join us in theaters and show Hollywood and politicians that true patriots will fight for their rights and want to see their values represented on-screen.”

A collaboration between Norris and entrepreneur and writer Gary Heavin, AMERIGEDDON seizes on fact-based threats and asks the ultimate question, “What happens when government turns on the people it’s supposed to protect?”

The sad thing is that the experts tell us that we could go a long way toward protecting our power grid from an EMP event for just a few billion dollars.

But there is absolutely no urgency among our leaders to get this done.  They would rather waste our tax dollars in thousands of other ways.

And unfortunately, there is not much urgency to address this threat among ordinary Americans either.  There are a variety of reasons for this, but I would like to touch on one.  There seems to be a belief among many Americans that God would never allow something this bad to happen to us since we are so special.  Of course this is complete nonsense, and anyone that doubts this should check out my new article in which I point out the parallels between modern America and Nazi Germany.

The executive producer of AMERIGEDDON, Gary Heavin, also pointed out the absurdity of this belief during a recent appearance on one of the biggest Christian shows in America

Over the years, I have repeatedly written about this EMP threat.  There is a chapter in “Get Prepared Now” about it, and I extensively warn that a day of reckoning is coming for America in my new book.

Sadly, most people are not listening.

Most people just seem to believe that everything is going to be okay somehow.

But as far as this EMP threat is concerned, the experts assure us that it is absolutely certain that a massive burst from the sun will inevitably fry our electronics someday even if we are never attacked with a nuclear device.  In addition, sources in the intelligence community are telling us that foreign hackers are becoming increasingly sophisticated and that someday they could bring down our power grid with just the push of a button.  This is something that Ted Koppel is so alarmed about that he wrote an entire book about it.

So I don’t know why Barack Obama doesn’t want to do anything about this.

And I certainly can’t figure out why Congress doesn’t want to do anything about this.

It is almost as if a cloud of insanity has descended upon the land and nobody can think straight.

Let us hope that our leaders wake up and start addressing this threat, because someday we will most certainly have to deal with an event of this nature.

It is just a matter of time.

    Another sensationalized, fearmongering article with more style over substance. Let’s see… the economic news front has been quite lately, so let’s toss in a hefty surplus of doom to scare everybody into following your blog more attentively and raking in more revenue.
    Michael mentioned how he wishes more educational and thought-provoking films were made. I agree. Why don’t you write an article about some of your favourite movies that fall under that category, then? But who wants honesty? Honesty doesn’t sell nearly as well as fear does, apparently.

    • Lukas Ladd

      I agree, I didn’t take it seriously though I suppose that there is a fair few that will . Quite sad to take advantage of their fear.

      • Plextt Plextt

        “Quite sad to take advantage of their fear.” That is such a polite way of saying it.

      • michael malachi

        keep your head buried in the sand. You wont see it coming till it is too late. keep on believing in this corrupt system with no clue.

        • Lukas Ladd

          Where did I say I believe in the system? On what basis is my head buried in the sand? If you don’t think this is a bit of a stretch then you should probably return to your bunker.

          • michael malachi

            My apology I read the wrong thing.

          • Spectrum

            “A bit of a stretch” ? The experts who are aware of these dangers certainly don’t see it as that. They’ve been pleading for the government to take the issue of EMP’s seriously. I suspect they know a hell of a lot more than you on the subject.

            Did you know that just to replace the transformers that provide the power would take YEARS ?

          • Lukas Ladd

            If you don’t think this is a stretch then you should return to your bunker? So your answer is no? So please don’t fuss over me and return to your bunker .

        Most Americans survived without electricity in their homes until 1879. A quarter of the global population still lacks it.

        • Preacher62

          Did not have it till I was 7 yrs old and then it was just 3 bare light bulbs scattered throughout the house. Indoor plumbing was a black pipe, gravity fed from a spring. Thought it was fine because I didn’t know any different. Hard to go back once you have seen the light though. Kinda like discovering God does exist.

          • gfmucci

            However, 95% of us are totally reliant on electricity. And 90% of those would go insane with fear and shock at the alteration of their lifestyle.

          • Preacher62

            Oh I agree completely. I teach High School and when the cell phones no longer work people will kill themselves their addiction is so strong. Basically the majority of those under 40 will no longer wish to live. Just saying that hard times are easier to bear if one is already accustomed to them.

          • Spectrum

            Ha ! I was just about to mention that, but you beat me to it ! Yep, those mentally ill addicts who can’t keep off their phones – how will they cope ? Reports say that people get anxiety attacks when they’re separated from their phones for more than just a short time. What will they do when they can’t use them AT ALL for up to A YEAR – if they can survive for that long anyway.

            At least that prospect won’t affect me, because I hate the things, and have never had one, nor intend to ever get one.

          • Preacher62

            They were okay when they were just telephones which is what I still have is just a telephone. Cheaper and more convenient than a landline. But when they became smart phones I have developed a deep loathing for them as one can no longer carry on a conversation or conduct a business transaction without the other person constantly looking at their stupid phone.

          • Spectrum

            Huh ? ALL mobile / cell phones produce that anti-social effect. They all work the same way don’t they ? And the morons still can’t wait for an appropriate time to answer their calls and text messages. No, they have to do so right there and then while you sit there twiddling your thumbs waiting for them to finish. It’s rude, and that’s why I hate the damn things and wish they’d never been invented.

            When I said people that use them – or more to the point ABUSE them – have a mental illness, I wasn’t joking. There’s something wrong with these obsessive compulsives when they feel compelled to make and receive dozens of calls and texts a day. Sometimes even hundreds, as is common with teenagers. Some people even take them to bed with them, and into the toilet as well ! I even read that one person fell over the edge of a cliff and was killed, because he or she was so absorbed with staring into the screen of the phone, that the said person didn’t notice until too late. True story !

            To all those sad addicts out there – believe me – you really really CAN live without a mobile / cell phone. Before 1987, we ALL did, we HAD to, because they hadn’t been invented before then.

            You have convinced yourselves that you must always have one close to you. I never have, nor ever will. And I’m still alive to tell the tale.

        • Spectrum

          Yes, but before 1879 and up to the early twentieth century, we didn’t rely so heavily on electricity ( and subsequently computers – to run everything, as we do… NOW ! …Doh !

          And the global population that still lacks it – would be underdeveloped Third World countries. Which is what WE would become one of if an EMP event occurred. You do realise what a complete lack of power means – no sanitation, no heating in winter or cooling in summer, no cars running, or public transport, food shortages, limited and overburdened medical services, massive break-ins, roving bands of desperate people committing violent crimes – think the aftermath of Katrina – phones and internet communication gone – in short – a complete breakdown of society as we know it and take for granted.

          And it doesn’t even have to be a military attack. Just a well timed nuclear detonation over a certain height and location. Even a mock civilian freighter off the coast can launch a missile to do the job. There would be no time to react to prevent it. And because there was ostensibly no military involved, the attack could be done anonymously. Making it a very attractive option for regimes like Iran and North Korea.

          The mindless zombies will be the ones that can’t use their cell phones anymore. The sensible ones who haven’t bought one, will be concentrating on what REALLY matters – our real life family – first and foremost.

          Mobile / cell phone addicts often say they “can’t imagine living” without their device. This scenario will genuinely put that stupid belief to the test – literally !

    • dlewenz

      If you listen to the Mark Levin Interview with Dr. Pry, who is the worlds expert on EMP, He believes that the Satellite launched by North Korea, is armed with a nuclear war head and the satellite tracks from the south to the north leaving the North American Defense system useless. Iran launched an ICBM last week into space that demonstrates it’s capability of hitting the USA. What Michael did not talk about is the once the grid goes down across the country, you can not bring it back for years! I have reached out to our two providers of electrical generation, DTE and Consumers Energy. When I spoke to the communications directors they told me they would look into the issue of how to protect the inner-state grid, after repeated calls I can not get a response back via email or phone. And if you have a car or truck with a computer, it will never start again without a new inner-face. If you look at what NASA is saying about a major natural Sun based EMP, we are way over due for the big one

      • James Dohnalek

        Thank you for the information.

      • Rick

        North Korea couldn’t launch a bottle rocket let alone a satilite. The monkey inside it I’m sure is dead already.

      In Aristotle’s book of Rhetoric, he postulated that anyone (everyone) could be influenced or “sold” an idea by using one of 3 primary tactics. He called them ethos, pathos, or logos—ethos for appealing to a moral belief ( buy this because it is the right thing to do.) Logos because it is the logical thing to do ( buy this expensive one and you’ll save more money in the long run because of quality/durability for example) Finally there is pathos–or appealing to an individuals emotions. Pathos can be broken down again into 3 sub-groups, appealing to vanity, greed or fear.
      Fear is a HUGE tactic used by the Anxiety Merchants who now are part of a multi-billion dollar industry.

  • Lukas Ladd

    No mobile phone, no laptop, no tv and no guns. I would say that this would be the return of civilization. Fetch some water, grow some grops, hunt some game and trade your surplus with your neighbors. all conversation would be meaningful and face to face .the brief happiness shinny new toys give us would be replaced with pride and contentment. I like the way things are now but the latter is nothing to fear.

    • Mike Smithy

      It would be like Gilligan’s Island little buddy.

          What is so ironic is the fact that after they were rescued, they all wanted to return to their simple island existence.

            No tax file number, no account number, no bsb number, no registration, no license, no passwords .no obligations . Once had led a simple life it would be hard to turn back.

    • greyprepper

      Why wouldn’t there be any guns? You are aware that guns don’t require a computer to operate, right?

    This is no joke, EMP attack or accident is a definite possibility. Where I lived in Quebec, we had the 1989 event which a geomagnetic storm brought down the Hydro-Quebec grid. Where I lived at the time had no power for 11 hours. Everything was shut down for 48 hours, because the power was not stable enough until then.

  • mtntrek3

    Michael is right………. we’re vulnerable in many ways. My family and I would probably make it through a few months off the grid. Then……… it’s in God’s hands. Actually…….. on or off the grid, none of us are promised tomorrow. Thankfully our life is in God’s hands.

          • Bill G Wilminton NC

            People believe in God on Faith and many times will die rather than deny God.

            Just like the three young men in Syria who were told to deny Christ and Praise Allah or DIE…….they did not deny Christ and had their heads cut off !. THAT IS FAITH !.

            You will never hear of Atheists dying for their faith…

          • Lukas Ladd

            No because we DO NOT HAVE FAITH! We take sound evidence and make conscious choices based of facts we have gathered for ourselves. I know for a fact that those three men are now only good for fertilizer.

            That’s garbage. And is an act of faith in itself – the very thing you say you don’t have. The only, repeat ONLY way you can “know” that for a FACT, is if you’re dead as well ! But why wait to find out * ?

            * Ironic that the only person who HAS come back ( permanently ) from the dead, was Jesus Christ. And He did that to offer sceptical atheists and sinners in general, a way to have eternal life. How ? Read the gospels.

            You believe that God created everything. who created god? Where did he come from? You think he just appeared one day? But slow evolution over a time period that the human mind can’t even comprehend is not a possibility? We do have dinosaur fossils,were the dinosaurs wiped out because they were buddist?

          • Uzal Roberts

            Answer the question, Lukas. Simple. Next you’re going to convince us a watch can design itself over time. You just have misdirected faith due to your hard heart.

          • Lukas Ladd

            If I were to guess, I would definitely say that Jesus did exist and he and his friends were very intelligent. they formulated a plan to control the masses that weren’t morally obligated to do what is right by fear of god. This would have huge economic benefits because authorities would be halved. That legacy lives today and if people that have trouble deciding right from wrong didn’t have the fear of god (fear of Satan and burning in hell for eternity ) then police numbers would be double.

          • Uzal Roberts

            I guess we’re done. You cannot answer my question.

            My apologies I thought it was a rhetorical question. No we haven’t turned the peace of earth that contains answer yet. you believe in God because evolution is missing one piece of evidence? There is no evidence that god exists at all! Not one spread ! You have your faith, good luck with that.

        The theme that seems to run through all these possible doomsday scenarios is a religious one: the Almighty is very displeased with the U.S. and one day His hammer of judgment will come down. True? I do not know.

      • The movie covers topics that should be of concern to the American people, but most are unaware of them. The NDAA is one of those issues covered, since it is an affront to the constitution, but every version of it has passed the congress and senate since I can remember.

        That being said, the movie itself is slow, boring and hokey. I went to see it yesterday in the early afternoon and the theater was mostly empty and the few people that were there were older. The only young person there was my daughter who I took with me. The movie was a very amateurish, low-budget disappointment, which is sad because it could have been a very good way to get these issues out to the sheeple and shown them what traitors there are in our congress, and really all of the federal government.

        It really makes you wonder if that was the idea all along – to make those of us concerned about creeping federal tyranny look totally stupid.

        You shouldn’t be ridiculing these kinds of possible events. A cynical attitude to what are very REAL potential realities, will only see you unprepared when they DO happen. This site is doing a commendable public service in warning us of the many dangers that are facing us in this ever changing world. If they sound gloomy, that’s because the world situation politically, socially and economically is getting worse and worse.

        I suppose you didn’t believe Bin Laden would ever do something as extreme as 9/11. But it happened. Then there was Fukushima.The next disaster could be much worse. It’s only a matter of time. There are a number of potentially cataclysmic events waiting to happen. The San Andreas and New Madrid faultlines, Yellowstone volcano overdue to erupt, the catastrophic debt / derivatives time bomb that is ever mounting – with the accompanying collapse of the world economy when it does, e.t.c. e.t.c.

        Living in denial isn’t helpful.

    An EMP does have me concerned. Would the generator I have not run since it has electronic ignition? My radios and CB, I have in faraday gage, but how do you protect a generator?

    • michael malachi

      put it in a shipping container. but don’t run it in there.

    • TIRED

      Best to protect the generator with its own Faraday cage and not remain direct wired in. Also a unit that runs on propane bottles with a means to refill the bottles would be good. This is still a temporary fix. No one (that will talk ) knows really what can be protected. Definitely the one thing that will take down “our country”.

    Could you please check out and perhaps do an article on the subject, if true, regarding the subject that there are two N. Korean satellites currently orbiting the U.S.? The U.S. military has been said to not know the payload, at a time when N.K. has been working on miniaturized nuclear weapon. One is reported to be 300 miles above earth, and the earlier one reportedly flew a trajectory over the Super Bowl on the day of the event. True? All info was received from reliable websites, but would appreciate verification if you have knowledge/research on the subject.
    Thanks!

  • The idea of an EMP attack upon America is what launched Omega Shock. I knew that America’s enemies have been practicing to launch such an attack for years. They know that this is the most effective way to destroy America.

    And, I believe that an EMP attack represents the most plausible explanation for why the United States does not stop the coming of Gog and Magog. In fact, if I were Iran or Russia, I would launch such an attack before attempting to invade the Middle East and Israel.

    I’m not sure why they haven’t mounted such an attack, before now. But, I am completely sure that they want to and are dedicated to making it happen.

    My wife and I spent several hours talking with Gary Heavin, the producer of this film, and I can tell you that he is as real a Christian as it gets. He is dedicated to doing what he can to save as many lives as possible, when this attack happens. The movie featured in this article is a part of that effort.

    Watch this movie, and then prepare for the attack that this movie describes. The lives that you save, may be more than just your own.

    • James Staten

      Mr. Little, I have visited your site in the past, and in the light of what the Apostle Paul writes in Ephesians 3 about a mystery which had been hid from ages past, but revealed to him during this dispensation of the grace of God. I was just wondering what is your definition of the Gospel?

    • Steeve Girard

      Russians are practical people, they see America as a drugged esoteric bunch. All they have to do, and they have been doing it, is sitting on their bacon, manage their internal affairs, and let America use it’s paranoid imagination to boast Russia’s reputation. The American propension to fear is Russia’s greatest ally, because it makes them know in Asia as cool and pragmatic.

    • James Staten

      Mr. Little, How many people groups does the Apostle Paul address in 1st Corinthians 10:32, and why during this dispensation of grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, does it matter? I am the second person in the last year or so to ask you to give a definition of the Gospel, and for the second time you refuse to do so. Mr. Little, the Apostle Paul was given several mysteries from the Savior in glory. Jesus told Paul and Paul told us that one day every man will be judged by “My Gospel”. Paul declares unto you the Gospel in 1st Corinthians 15:1-4 succinctly. The Pauline Epistles are literally half the New Testament, and therein lies new information that the Lord revealed to Paul that He didn’t reveal in His earthly ministry. I sure hope this helps!!!!

      • Your incessant desire to push your ideas upon my readers was a bit much, and still is a bit much.

        Paul, in 1 Cor. 10:32, is not making any other point than the need to not offend ANYONE.

        Your attempt at promoting your theology by twisting verses out of context will not work, James. It is a sin.

        You need to repent and ask God to forgive for twisting His words.

    Bad Michael, you have upset the trolls again. How far have things fallen. That common sense is the same as fear mongering..As to how many would die off from such an event. Quite a few. I would expect no less than 10 million dead from suicide alone, by the fourth month. Just as many from violence of various sorts. The first winter would take out many. And about half way through that winter. Mankind’s old enemy would return, desease. Bad water, lack of sanitation, shortages of medication. All would contribute to an amazing death toll. All these are internal threats. I myself suspect external threats would also be present. I would expect the Chinese, and the Russians, to invade, at some point.If not outright. Then under the guise of peacekeepers and relief workers. You know, the kind of help that never goes home. So you see, Michael did not even show you the worst case possibility.

    I will have to see the movie but the classic of the genre is One Second After by Forstchen. This is a fictionalized account of the impact of an EMP burst over a small mountain town in NC. Very thought provoking. If this book does not spur you on to “prep”, nothing will.

    My wife was in the hospital for a day or two. Everything and I mean everything in medicine is run by computer these days. While I am sure there are backup generators, how long could they hold out? No elevators? How do patients get up and down?

    Having watched Ferguson and Baltimore burn baby burn, I have no illusions about the nature of such a catastrophe. The Living would envy the Dead.

      Our government has a plan to take total control and all freedom from the people. They have used U.S. citizens as test subjects for 100 years and have no respect for human life. US citizens have been a cash cow for the elites and that is coming to an end.
      Russia and China on the other hand just want to destroy the US and plunder it because of the evil that the US promotes all over the world. Of course they are also evil.
      Many other countries hate the US and it is only a matter of time before we will see which of these groups will be first to destroy America as we know it.

      • Skram one

        Can you send us the plan you refer to. I’d like to take a quick read and I’m sure some others on this site would as well.

        If this PLAN is made up in your head, fair enough. My thoughts are that the elites need us to buy the stuff to make them elite. Why would they want to mess up a good thing?

        • michael malachi

          If you don’t see the incremental taking of our freedom and the complete lack the government has for the will of the people – I could go on – then you are blind. I don’t think that you understand who the elite are. They are not the business owners or manufacturers. The more that they control us – the richer and more powerful they become. If you want a copy of the plan look at saul alinsky – rules for radicals. There are much much more to read into but this can get you a start.
          Oh by the way Mrs. Clinton was a big fan/student of alinski.

          Also read ” The Creature From Jekyll Island ” all about the federal reserve and money. You will be shocked…

          • Skram one

            Bill, I am aware with the Jekyll Island story and the creation of the Federal Reserve. But I think this was a brazen plot of the bankers and financiers to privatize the U.S money supply. Which we must admit was pulled off with genius precision. But I think it was about making money and controlling wealth, more than removing our freedoms. It has made the monied class fantastically rich, and our freedom was in their best interest. At least it seems that way to me.

            We simply have a complex society, now global, at the brink of collapse, as all complex societies ultimately go. This one will just be the biggest collapse in human history when it does break. But as I stated above , there is no “plan” here like something Dr. Evil would inspire.

            The breaking down of our society, the loss of freedom, the loss of privacy, the unending wars, the insane debt, are nothing more than a last ditch effort to keep the sucker from going down the drain! Again, this is what happens ALWAYS with complex societies in the end.

            The elites will lose too in the end, so we can be cheerful of that.

    The threat from EMP is very real, thumbs up for a good article. The problem is, this blog contains way too much dumb stuff, like worrying about Baal worship, of all things, and it discredits the good things that Michael writes about. Sort of like the boy who cried wolf; when readers are used to a steady diet of pseudo-Christian dispensationalism and fearmongering nonsense, they tend to discount the very real and credible threats that Michael writes about.

  • grumpyhillbilly

    Does it even have to be an EMT to take the grid out? Seems like the power companies are working hard to maximise their profits at the expense of the grid.

  • disqus_qiB0euZy39

    This is a valid concern that is getting more and more media coverage. Ultimately, we all need to be prepared to protect ourselves and our families during interruptions in electrical service. Such interruptions could occur from a host of reasons; EMP, cyber attack, solar activity (CME) or the more likely source, storms. For families that rely on a well for their water, lack of electrical service is a serious problem since well pumps won’t work without power. However, there is a backup tool available that allows water to be drawn from a well without power and without having to remove the pump called the Emergency Well Tube. Hopefully none of us ever experiences a worst case scenario to need a tool like this, but it’s a good idea to prepare for the worst and hope for the best.

  • Tired

    Discount the treat if some wish. I consider this the one of the most possible ways of the end of our technology driven world. In the depression years – large numbers of people were living in an agricultural based environment without luxuries. Most older structures were built with large porches on all sides and trees around them for shade. They often had large windows for air flow. Most modern buildings have no means for outside air.
    It is best to prepare to help family and friends and be wrong. At least these people preparing are helping to stimulate the decomposing economy.

      “Disregard the treat” ? I hardly think chaos from an EMP attack is a treat !

    I guess like Ryan Gosling said in the movie “The Big Short”, “You still actually have faith in the system”. The United States government is completely corrupt, and they have already made plans for when the collapse comes. Also, I believe that Obama is actually the leader called “GOG” from Ezekiel 38-39, as his administration is fervently trying to start a major war with Russia in Syria. The Lord will take care of him, in a dramatic way. Anyway, this whole administration is filled with pathological liars, hypocrites, and murderers. And you “don’t know why Barack Obama doesn’t want to do anything about this”?

      You are wrong Realist: It was in Genesis chapter 3 that Adam relinquished his crown to Satan; Satan gladly assumed dominion over the Earth in Genesis chapter 3. Romans 5:12 continues, “Wherefore, as by one man sin entered into the world, and death by sin; and so death passed upon all men, for that all have sinned….” Satan’s policy of evil succeeded in involving Earth: Adam willfully gave up his divinely-ordained earthly dominion. So, God gave man the dominion over the Earth; when man willfully sided with Satan, man became controlled by Satan and sin, and through fallen man, Satan gained power over the Earth. Consequently, Satan dominates the world’s political, religious, social, economic, and educational systems. Hence, the Bible talks about “this present evil world” (Galatians 1:4). Satan is called “the god [or ruler] of this world” (2 Corinthians 4:4). The Bible says in 1 John 5:19, “And we know that we are of God, and the whole world lieth in wickedness.” Ephesians 2:2 speaks of the evil “course of this world.”

      God will come back to reclaim earth. Read about the battle of Gog and Megog.

      • GSOB

        Adam & Eve were created for a specific purpose & role to fill in the design of God.

        1.) Adam did not relinquish a crown to Satan.
        He disobeyed the Lord God. Adam had no crown or even underwear for that matter.

        2. ) You say ‘through fallen man, Satan gained power of the earth’.
        Satan was created before Adam & Eve were. Lucy was always more powerful than mankind over the earth, before and after sin.

        3.) Adam was disobedient. The woman was deceived. Adam did not side with Satan
        rather, he harkened on to the woman.
        In other words, his actions is what incurred the curse of God. His actions was likened to worshipping the creature instead of the Creator.
        Leaning upon his own understanding and not checking with God. A worker of lawlessness, if you would.

        4.) Mankind is in league with Satan in the sense that they oppose Him and exercises earthly dominion by his own power, knowledge
        & terms.

        Thus, the city of man and the city of God, the wheat and the tare exist to this very day.

    Unfortunately, all of the problems on this planet have to be dealt with by us alone. Now if a terrorist attack immobilized the power grid, you can be sure that this would be music to the ears of the White House. Why?

  • Reb49

    Yes, there are many scenarios that could bring down the grid. Most of them come from unfriendly sources. It wouldn’t even take an EMP. A group of well trained ISIS members could effectively take out our grid with well placed non nuclear explosives. But the EMP is more likely, especially with N Korea, Iran, Russia now having the capabilities. Of course we do too, but it’d be too late for us One can only prepare so much. Faraday cage or two, extra food, ammo, but serious prepping takes a lot on money.
    We have a second home way up in the Andes of Colombia that is self sustaining. I can’t imagine anyone maliciously plotting an EMP attack down there. Not that they don’t have their own unique problems. My family will be there before the elections, I will follow shortly afterwards. We’ll assess the situation from there before we return. But, as the article states, it could be our luck that S America gets hit with a solar flare causing massive blackouts.
    Just prepare for the worse. Hope for the best. We live in hurricane country, so whatever we stock up on will eventually used.

  • Skram one

    Michael,

    An EMP threat is absolutely a real threat and one all serious people should be aware of. And one that IS being taken very serious at the top levels of our government, our President, and our military. Sorry that the Conspiratards aren’t being invited .

    Hollywood is about “make believe” for the most part, a profit based enterprise, and not intended to be a place for hard news.Norris and his new movie will fit that bill to the tee. Yes, more Hollywood garbage as you inferred.

    From reading the OFFICIAL WEBSITE that you pasted above, this movie will have taken a serious minded, extreme threat, and turned it into a fuel based, red meat meal for the white wing, I mean right wing extremists to promote their continued paranoia and fear mongering of anything government that doesn’t fit their small brained world.

    I do believe you warn people of true government ineptitude, and I applaud you for doing so. But please stay away from the black helicopter crowd. You do yourself and your intelligent readers a real disservice when you do so.

    90% death rate is pretty close to correct. No food, no water, no services at all. All transportation down. Within a year, nearly 90% of the population would be dead or pretty close to dead. Crank in invasion by other countries and you have the end of the US of A. This is one of those things you cannot grasp with your mind since nothing like it has every happened. The danger of being so techno centric. Once the power dies, the techno stuff stops working and so does the society dependent on it.

    • gfmucci

      EMP = immediate economic collapse = immediate civil unrest and total societal breakdown.

      Add to that, the existing violent gangs multiply by 1,000. Muslim immigrants join forces (with knowledge of their survival instincts from Libya, Somalia, and the Sudan w/o electricity) and attempt to implement their Sharia through their beloved Islamic jihad.

      • Creepy Pedro

        Humans die after 3 days of no water. Dehydration is very bad.

      • alan

        My guess..
        Day 1 will pretty much be the end.
        Big cities will be death traps. You and millions of others will be walking out to escape. As people move outward they will eat everything in their path.

  • HeyAHuman

    Something always comes around to let people know that nature wears the pants around here. The illusion that we are completely controlled by a few evil entities is just that… an illusion. Those with false power (usurpers) will be the first to perish when we succumb to nature’s wrath. So be aware, but not fearful.

  • Leighton Williams

    And not just an EMP attack or a nuclear weapon attack, but also economic collapse. A major crisis is what will cause people to beg for order to be restored. Civilization itself will crumble and men will be faint out of fear..

    • Spectrum

      And who will be eagerly waiting to step in when the people beg for order to be restored ? The One World government / New World Order system. Maybe they’ll let the Russians or Chinese occupy us. As we’ll be completely defenceless and disorganised, and wide open to invasion.

      • Leighton Williams

        It’s inevitable..America is already a Third World country as it is..The takeover is happening incrementally..I really don’t know what it is that they are waiting for…

  • Leighton Williams

    The reason why Barack is not doing anything about this, is because TPTB , who put him in the White House to begin with and they will not have the Plan tampered with. He dares to lift a finger against what they want and they’ll wipe him out in a heartbeat.

  • IsReal

    I’m still unsure what product I’ll need you’re selling in your sales article.

  • HeyAHuman

    If an EMP attack were to be launched against America, then best of luck to our government’s attempt to coordinate military retaliation, considering how busy they’d be trying to police the violent mobs all over their own turf.

  • piccadillybabe

    It’s finally waking people up to solar energy. If the sun can take us out, it can also give back if we are intelligent enough to utilize it’s gifts and hook up a few panels, a battery and inverter for those rainy Amerigeddon days.

    • AzDi

      I think an EMP would fry your solar panels.

      • gfmucci

        That is an excellent question. If the panels are in storage (not necessarily in a Farraday cage), not exposed to sunlight and not generating anything, I don’t know for certain that solar panels would be fried. Any testing of this scenario?

        • AzDi

          Do a search on line. Lots of info on EMP’s and Solar panels.

      • alan

        Hum I don’t think so. Most modern electronic are protected or harden. It would require a massive attack to cover the whole US in an EMP event. I think EMP is more of a scare tactic like Bigfoot will steal your babies from the yard.

        • Bill G Wilminton NC

          Alan you are wrong…..a potential EMP attack is real and easy !… a 20 meg nuclear blast at a certain height say 30 miles will cover the entire US from coast to coast. This would be fired out of a shipping container on a freighter….the container top would lift up to the side like a door and the missile would fire….goodbye charlie.

          The entire infrastructure electrical grid of the USA could have been hardened cement encased for about 2 billion bucks, but never done WHY…..this would have prevented some maniac group from even thinking about this sinister plot….but without this cement encasing we USA are sitting ducks….and even worse the transformers that would have to be replaced are only made in one place CHINA and each transformer takes about one year to build.

        • VigilanteCaregiver

          Depends on the shielding and what’s exposed. The panels would likely survive, but the wires, circuits, and other components would be affected. My system has a series of fuses and breakers before reaching the faraday cages.

          EMP’s can occur with a device as small as a hand grenade.

  • AzDi

    This is what we get from the big bloated government. They started in 2001 to “study” the issue, and here we are in 2016 and they are still talking about “maybe’ doing something???? So much of what is wrong in this country is because of government— both parties!

    Many people are prepared for anything that comes up because “we” seem to be smarter than the idiots in Washington. We have prepared for most things that could happen as best we can, however you never know.

  • Maddog

    Have you spent any time out in public lately? There is absolutely no common decency left. Sheeple treat each other like crap. They say 90% dead within the first year. The only problem I have with that is the overly optimistic view in regards to the new Godless American society. I give it 30 days to get to that number.

    • Preacher62

      Could be a more accurate timeline for sure.

    • Creepy Pedro

      3 days w/o water …is all it takes.

    • Beanodle

      The Military have studied Solar flares over the years. Their reports indicate 20 – 30% population die off with 6 weeks and then a logarithmic increase after that. Their end prediction is less optimistic – less than 10% surviving after a year.

      However the U.S. won’t be the only country affected. The U.S. is the worldwide currency of trade. This trade will cease until a substitute is found.
      Meanwhile all those with a sizable functioning military will immediately move on the worlds energy sources. You can bet that there will be friction aplenty.
      Those countries without their own energy supplies will be in real trouble.

    As good as I can get: private 55 kWh power system, ice box and means to store winter ice (backup for the backup), hydroponics and traditional gardening, small livestock, water collection and treatment system, chem set, workshop, etc. Only concern is the wife’s medications: have plants for backup but also learning pharmacological chemistry; working on how to make her meds.

    • Bill G Wilminton NC

      Impressive ! pharmacological chemistry wow……and are you right with The Lord….

  • Tienne

    If the grid goes down for more than a couple of days, being without cellphones, refridgerators, sanitation etc will be the LEAST of your problems and no amount of prepping will save you from the 99+ nuclear power plants that will go into meltdown. Nuke plants only have enough diesel stored to run the emergency generators for cooling the cores for a scant few days and then what? Hmm? It”l be game over. “Only” 90% dead after a year without electricity seems like a very optimistic number IMO!

    • Mark

      Thank you! Finally someone gets it. An EMP or any event that causes reactors to be unmanned is an extinction level event. We have built the Doomsday machine and no one told us. One addendum. Radiation doesn’t respect borders. There are 451 reactors globally. You don’t need that many for all life as we now it to end. The situation is so ridiculous you would thing it was planned….

  • REALIST

    Stop this fear. Are we not Christians? Is not the Lord a merciful God who protects those who worship him in their hearts and have faith.

    God will provide. God will protect his children.

    (What? You think I am joking? You calling the Bible a joke? You saying “God” won’t protect you?)

  • If the entire grid goes out, we will have hundred of Fukushimas all over the world. The average NPP has less than 4 days of outside fuel. Without power, every single NPP will melt down.

    • Spectrum

      Yep, cooling those fuel rods requires lots of pumped water. Which requires electrical power. Ask Chernobyl and Fukushima….

  • GSOB

    I disagree with most of you on the duration
    of time required to restore law and order
    after an EMP attack.
    More likely a few weeks at most.

    • DB200

      Would you agree that hurricane Katrina is a smaller disaster than an EMP attack? How long did it take the authorities to restore law and order?

      • GSOB

    As a Christian, I accept the FACT that nothing happens without the will of GOD. Those of you who do not accept this fact will go to Hell and burn alive for eternity. Don’t like the truth I express? Then you will suffer the wrath of the Forgiving and Loving God. Don’t blame me.

    The Bible can not be wrong. Those who question the Bible are the tools of Satan,Lucifer, Bal, Zeuss, Osiris, etc and all the other false gods that have been defeated in Battle by the One True God of the Sinai Desert…..the Lord of the Chosen.

    Repent. Accept the Word of God or GO TO HELL.

    • DB200

      Strong words. I think that Jesus has the last word. He decides who goes to heaven. And yes, the Bible is full of good advice. Reading it will enrich your life in a way that nothing else can.

    2) Will the

    They want you to see this movie and all the others like it! Then you’ll come out waving your firearms and perhaps even attempt some sort of uprising, that’s just what they want you to do, and are waiting for you ! Stay alive, stay indoors and read your bible!

  • James Staten

    Thank You

  • geoffandmarie418@aol.com

    What America needs and it pains me immensely to say this, is for a couple of our cities to get “nuked” and maybe we can come together and stop fighting amongst ourselves.

  • Spectrum

    Maybe Obama’s administration aren’t interested in doing anything about it because they’re in the real life script of the movie. Truth can be stranger than fiction you know !

  • amongoose

    To do this would require taking money from favored constituents (donors) programs.
    Ain’t gonna happen.

  • DB200

    Michael, the fact that your government does not want to take action to make the grid EMP proof when there is a clear and present danger, gives me the impression that it is done on purpose.

  • DizzOU08

    The good things to come from it will be, no more kardashians to have to watch, no more liberals, and the ghettos will be empty. Those who understand how to be self sufficient, will far outlast those who live off of others. A reset is long long overdue.

    • Mark

      Agreed, love the idea, except for one problem. Nuclear reactors.

  • Priszilla

    Ever tried green policy? Insulate your house to save energy. Reduce your demand. Buy sustainable goods and services. Get durable goods. Style instead of fashion.
    Produce the little energy you need by yourself.

    The more you prep the more you stabilise the economy and society.

  • Mark

    This is highly optimistic. The number is 100%. Are we forgetting about the 451 nuclear reactors around the world. They are absolutely not designed to be unmanned. In any emergency scenario they scram. Emergency cooling systems kick in. There is usually on average 7 days worth of diesel on site. When the diesel runs out the core rapidly increases in temperature at a rate of about 3 degrees celsius/second. Meltdown and breach of containment follow. Reactors contain hundreds of tons of radioactive fuel (compare to a missile with a few pounds). The adjacent spent cooling pools contain thousands of tons of spent highly radioactive fuel. They also melt down hence the cooling pools. In the US alone there are around 100 reactors all built in the 1970s. This won’t be a “my iphone doesn’t work” scenario. Or the banking system has collapsed. This will be an extinction level event. btw it doesn’t have to be an emp. ANY event that causes a significant number of reactors to be unmanned and it’s game over. There is no surviving that level of radiation.

    If you sitting on a time bomb and the clock is ticking, do you feel safe because it hasn’t exploded yet?

  • Jacob Messer

    I think, if they study something, then do nothing about it… they plan on using it some time in the future.

  • jim_robert

    Every time I see things like this, I am *so* glad I own property in Cape Breton, Nova Scotia, near St. Peters. This will probably fall on deaf ears, but here are some advantages:

    1.) I am a dual US/Canadian citizen, but Americans can buy property straight up as well. If you have a bank account, the financial police will want a record if you have more than $10k. Land? Not tracked at all – essentially you have a non-reportable bank account.

    2.) Some litigious jerk wants to sue you? Going to be a LOT more difficult doing that – if they even find out you have the property (put it in a trust without your name). And while they can play games with the deed, etc., they cannot just dig the property up and ship it back somewhere.

    3.) Look at what is generally assumed to be the radius of an EMP strike over the middle of the country, which is most likely. You will notice Nova Scotia is completely outside of the affected rings. Of course, if the rest of the country is down, it won’t be Jollyville – but you’ll be a zillion time better off.

    4.) Every time I mention this, I get the whiners talking about how cold it is. First, this is a good thing, as all the easy livers will NOT want to go north. You immediately exclude all the riff-raff. Second, it is on the Gulf Stream, and is NOT that cold. Average high in January in Halifax is around freezing. That is a giant difference from, say, Edmonton, where I have been in – 50 F. in the summer, it is very temperate. As it is hilly, mosquitoes don’t like running water, and where I live on Bras d’Or Lake (Cape George Estates) in Cape Breton, this is a saline lake, so mosquitoes don’t like it. Finally, assuming some kind of govt still exists, Canadians won’t be letting any old riff-raff in – but of course, you are a land owner, so you would be different. Alexander Graham Bell lived near Baeddeck on Bras d’Or Lake – in part because during the pre-air conditioning days, it never got super hot. My contention is that if you get cold, you can always put a jacket on. If you are 100F and 100% humidity, there’s only so much you can take off. And remember, we are not talking Alberta cold here – rather highs that are close to freezing in Jan.

    5.) This area is easily accessible by boat from the east coast. A major plus is a SHTF situation. And in a non-SHTF situation, you fly to Halifax or drive up through Maine. It is also about a 3 -4 hour drive from Halifax. Far enough out from any major metro area, and Halifax, and maybe 1/2 million, is NOT a major metro area to begin with.

    6.) Muslim population is virtually non-existent, and as a terrorist target – for those few times Canada might be targeted, they would choose Toronto, or maybe Ottawa, Montreal or Vancouver. They don’t even know where Halifax is, and if it was hit, it probably would be in the news for a day and forgotten. Not the media splash the Islamofascists like to make.

    6.) Let’s say nothing happens. You still have a nice property. Bras d’Or Lake I believe is where the US Yachting Assoc. has its HQ (yes, in Canada), so if the economy takes off for some reason, you know how the rich and the Learjet leftists (e.g., John Kerry) like their yachts. Last I saw, there Shell and others were doing oil exploration off the coast. If they hit paydirt, you might be in really good stead if you had a primo property in an oil patch

    Halifax is an historic city – lots of cultural attractions, big enough to have night life, a major international airport, not big enough the have 1% of the crime of Chicago or LA. Also big enough to have medical care, and two major universities. As the hub of the whole area, the city feels bigger than it actually is.

    One travel magazine called Cape Breton one of the top 10 island in the world in its vacation survey, and it IS very scenic and beautiful. Just google it and click on images. Interestingly, road signs are in English and Gaelic, so you can imagine you are in for some good music… and with the ocean there, you have fishing everywhere (as well as in Bras d’Or Lake)

    You will also have a well watered area in the even of a meltdown. The more fertile areas are closer to Halifax (e.g, Truro area), but no desert or worries about water here.

    7.) The Canadian dollar, aka “the loonie” is somewhere around 76 cents to the USD. You will buy a LOT with your money, and with Canada electing the utterly incompetent Boy Wonder Justin Trudeau, it will stay down for a while. You will get a lot for your money. Most of Canada is in a housing bubble, IMHO. But the Maritime provinces never got that, so prices are still fine.

    8.) Downsides? The ever present Canadian socialism. Not that the US is that far behind these days. This whole cold thing is absurd. There ARE cold blasts that hit all of the US, outside of FL and the far southwest (e.g., record low for New Orleans is -12°C (11°F) December 23, 1989. Get a jacket. Then there are the coyotes (coywolves is the new name, as they have interbred with wolves. One young woman was killed a few years ago by them, and others have had aggressive behaviour towards people. Carry pepper spray… or a tire iron! Gun control is bad in Canada, but it’s not like guns are outlawed.
