Numerous foreign governments have the ability to destroy America's electrical grid with a nuclear weapon.

US in Great Danger of EMP Attack

There is a great and urgent danger of an EMP attack that would obliterate the United States and kill most Americans. Unfortunately the government is not prepared.

What is an electromagnetic pulse (EMP)?

An electromagnetic pulse (EMP) is the electric wave produced by nuclear blasts that can knock out electronics and the electrical grid up to 1,000 miles away. The disruption could cause catastrophic damage and loss of life if power is not restored or backed up quickly since millions of people would die of starvation and sickness in a few months.

On February 3, 2021, Isabelle wrote an article titled “Russia’s Super Electronic Pulse Weapon Could Destroy U.S. Grid, Experts Warn” that was published by A Final Warning website. Isabelle explained that the danger of an EMP attack and the destruction to the nation’s electrical grid has been a concern for many years, but now “Russia appears to be mastering systems that can overcome the protections that have been put in place to preserve the integrity of the grid.”  She said that Russia has developed a specialized “super electromagnetic pulse weapon and warhead that can travel at speeds of Mach 20 and would be able to plunge America into darkness with very little advance warning.”

Dr. Peter Vincent Pry is Chief of Staff of the newly re-established Congressional Electromagnetic Pulse (EMP) Commission, and Executive Director of the Task Force on National and Homeland Security, a Congressional Advisory Board dedicated to achieving protection of the United States from electromagnetic pulse (EMP), Cyber Warfare, mass destruction terrorism and other threats to civilian critical infrastructures, on an accelerated basis.

Dr. Pry also is Director of the United States Nuclear Strategy Forum, an advisory board to Congress on policies to counter Weapons of Mass Destruction. Foreign governments, including the United Kingdom, Israel, Canada, and Kazakhstan consult with Dr. Pry on EMP, Cyber, and other strategic threats. Dr. Pry served on the staffs of the Congressional Commission on the Strategic Posture of the United States (2008-2009); the Commission on the New Strategic Posture of the United States (2006-2008); and the Commission to Assess the Threat to the United States from Electromagnetic Pulse (EMP) Attack (2001-2008).

Peter Vincent Pry, chief of staff for Congressional EMP Commission.

Dr. Pry served as Professional Staff on the House Armed Services Committee (HASC) of the U.S. Congress, with portfolios in nuclear strategy, WMD, Russia, China, NATO, the Middle East, Intelligence, and Terrorism (1995-2001). While serving on the HASC, Dr. Pry was chief advisor to the Vice Chairman of the House Armed Services Committee and the Vice Chairman of the House Homeland Security Committee, and to the Chairman of the Terrorism Panel.

Dr. Pry played a key role: running hearings in Congress that warned terrorists and rogue states could pose EMP and Cyber threats, establishing the Congressional EMP Commission, helping the Commission develop plans to protect the United States from EMP and Cyber Warfare, and working closely with senior scientists and the nation’s top experts on critical infrastructures, EMP and Cyber Warfare. Dr. Pry was an Intelligence Officer with the Central Intelligence Agency responsible for analyzing Soviet and Russian nuclear strategy, operational plans, military doctrine, threat perceptions, and developing U.S. paradigms for strategic warning (1985-1995). He also served as a Verification Analyst at the U.S. Arms Control and Disarmament Agency responsible for assessing Soviet arms control treaty compliance (1984-1985).

Dr. Peter Vincent Pry wrote the book, The Power and Light, in March 2020.

Amazon described this book as follows: “Electromagnetic pulse (EMP) can be caused by Nature or Man and poses an existential threat to our electronic civilization.  A nationwide blackout lasting one year could kill millions, up to 90 % of the American people, through starvation, disease, and societal collapse.” 

“EMP is the ultimate cyber-weapon in the military doctrines and plans of Russia, China, North Korea, and Iran for a new way of warfare described as the greatest Revolution in Military Affairs in history.  The EMP Commission has been warning about the existential EMP threat for nearly 20 years.  So alarming is the looming EMP threat that the Commission has gone above and beyond the call of duty, made extraordinary efforts, been waging a war against ignorance, a war against a stubborn and irresponsible U.S. Government bureaucracy, a war against powerful and dishonest electric power industry lobbies, and a war against press bias and disinformation, to save the American people from a possibly imminent EMP catastrophe. The EMP War has been and is a real war, just like the thermonuclear Cold War was a real war over ideas, science, technology, policies, and strategy to prevent, or survive, Armageddon.  America cannot afford to lose the EMP War.  Learn about the existential threat from EMP–and become part of the solution.”   

In addition to writing The Power and Light, Dr. Pry has written numerous books on national security issues, including Blackout Wars; Apocalypse Unknown: The Struggle to Protect America From an Electromagnetic Pulse Catastrophe; Electric Armageddon: Civil-Military Preparedness for An Electromagnetic Pulse Catastrophe; War Scare: Russia and America on the Nuclear Brink; Nuclear Wars: Exchanges and Outcomes; The Strategic Nuclear Balance: And Why It Matters; and Israel’s Nuclear Arsenal. Dr. Pry often appears on TV and radio as an expert on national security issues.

Currently Peter Vincent Pry, has stated that China has surpassed developments in electromagnetic pulse warfare by the United States, putting us in a clear and present danger if China choose to attack us in this manner. Isabelle wrote that some experts are worried that “President Biden’s lifting of President Trump’s ban on Chinese involvement in the U.S. grid will make it easier for them to attack our electric supply.” She added that “Pry said that the current political turmoil presents a golden opportunity for an EMP strike and Washington’s impotence and irresolution will invite future, increasingly aggressive cyberattacks.”

Isabelle stated the following: “The truth is that enemies of our nation, such as Russia, China, Iran, and North Korea, view the U.S. as an easy target given how much of our economy depends on electricity, the internet and electronic communications. An attack would easily wipe out all of these, putting every American in danger. Pry outlined these advancements in EMP warfare in a new report on Russia. EMP weapons, he says, are exploded very high up in the atmosphere, allowing them to wipe out electric grids and computers across wide swaths of the country in outages that could last longer than a year. The nation’s large transformers controlling the grid and high-voltage control cables are said to be particularly vulnerable. Transformers take two years to build and cost roughly $7 million each, and we are already behind schedule in having backups ready. This means that if many of our transformers go out at once, as they would in an attack, there is little we can do to restore power in a reasonable time frame.”

China is working on similar weapons

Isabelle explained the following: “China has been working on an array of weapons including laser beam weapons, counter-space weapons, maneuverable missile warheads, artificial intelligence-directed robots and hypersonic weapons. Their weapons could easily knock out satellites, shutting down GPS networks and the nation’s most critical communications and intelligence systems. The threat is so concerning that the U.S. Naval Academy has revived a course in celestial navigation after previously deeming it outdated and cutting it from their curriculum.”

China’s WU-14, a hypersonic glide vehicle can deliver a precision-guided missile at hypersonic speeds from 60 miles above Earth. America is unprepared to defend against such a weapon now.”

Isabelle concluded her article by saying: “An EMP attack would ruin all of the electronics in the country, impacting power, medical networks, financial networks, transportation, food and water supply, and sanitation; they could even take out the ability of our military to respond. Pry has said that as many as 90 percent of Americans could die in the first year after such an event due to starvation, illness, and societal collapse. For this reason, many people are stocking up on appliances that do not need electricity to function, such as solar ovens, wind-up flashlights, and hand-powered water pumps, not to mention barter items in the event that credit and debit cards are rendered useless. If you haven’t already started preparing for a potential EMP attack. It’s time to take the threat seriously. The Sources for Isabelle very concerning article include: StrangeSounds.org MilitaryTimes.com Heritage.org

It is incredible to this writer that all previous presidents and Congress have not protected America from an EMP event coming from nature or by an attack by any enemy nation. It is also incredible that the media has not demanded that Congress and the president protect America from such a clear and present danger. The corrupt mainstream media devoted the last four years attacking unfairly President Donald J. Trump as a Russian spy and requesting his impeachment while ignoring the technological advances by China, Russia, and their allies that could destroy forever our beloved nation kill 90% of Americans.

An electromagnetic pulse (EMP) over the United States could end modern life in America overnight. Whether caused by an enemy attack (a nuclear device detonated above the atmosphere) or by a natural phenomenon (a geomagnetic storm or solar flares), an EMP can cause entire regions of the country to lose electricity permanently. Despite the EMP Commission’s recommendations in 2004 and 2008, and the newly re-established Congressional Electromagnetic Pulse (EMP) Commission, hardly any progress has been made in protecting America from an EMP nuclear attack or by solar flares and its catastrophic results. America must prepare to deal with an EMP immediately.

While the ability of an electromagnetic pulse (EMP) to inflict catastrophic damage on U.S. infrastructure has been a known fact for decades, insufficient efforts have been made to mitigate the threat. A survey of congressional, federal, state, local, and international measures to deal with the threat reveals more complacency than action. To prevent the catastrophic destruction that could result from either a nuclear missile detonated at high altitudes or intense solar eruptions that send blasts of radiation towards the Earth, initiatives are needed at all levels—from bilateral partnerships that focus on shared infrastructure to national leadership to state and local action.

History

Enrico Fermi (1901–1954) was an Italian physicist, who created the world’s first nuclear reactor.

Fermi has been called the “architect of the nuclear age” and the “architect of the atomic bomb.” The knowledge that an electromagnetic pulse (EMP) is produced by a nuclear explosion was known in the earliest days of nuclear weapons testing. However, the magnitude of the enormous damage produced by an EMP nuclear explosion was not immediately realized.

During the first American nuclear test on July 16, 1945, the electronic equipment was shielded due to Enrico Fermi’s expectation of the electromagnetic pulse. The official report for that first nuclear test stated, “All signal lines were completely shielded, in many cases doubly shielded. Despite this, many records were lost because of spurious pickup at the time of the explosion that paralyzed the recording equipment.”

In 1962 during Cold War, the U.S. military exploded a nuclear weapon high above an atoll in the Pacific Ocean. The test was called Operation Starfish. It was part of a larger project to evaluate the impacts of nuclear explosions in space. The missile was launched from Johnson Island 898 miles from Hawaii. It was armed with a 1.4 megaton warhead programmed to explode at 240 miles above the earth. When the nuclear weapon detonated, it resulted in an electromagnetic pulse (EMP) powerful enough to impact the electric grid in Hawaii, blowing out about 300 streetlights and resulting in telephone outages and radio blackouts.

William Robert Graham was born on June 15, 1937 in San Antonio, Texas. He was Chairman of President Reagan’s General Advisory Committee on Arms Control from 1982 to 1985 and Science Adviser to President Reagan from 1986 to 1989.

Dr. Graham chaired the statutory Commission to Assess the Threat to the United States from Electromagnetic Pulse (EMP) Attack from 2001 through 2008, which issued several reports, including a report entitled Critical National Infrastructures in 2008. Graham then went on to become one of the nation’s leading experts on the topic, helping advise on both defensive and offensive capabilities. Dr. William Graham was active in the follow-up to the project, working out of the Air Force weapons lab in Albuquerque, New Mexico. After the blast, it was his job to understand the data collected and find out just what had happened in Hawaii and what the defense implications were of this phenomenon.

In a later interview, Dr. Graham stated the following: “The effects were bizarre and almost entirely unanticipated. One effect was an electromagnetic pulse, but nobody knew it was going to be anywhere nearly as large it proved to be.  They had all this data and they didn’t understand very much of it, including the EMPs that had been observed and the effects produced…all kinds of electrical disturbances were seen over 1,000 kilometers away in Oahu. The Air Force brought in a bunch of us…and asked us to explain it.  With the leadership of scientists from Los Alamos, we figured it out.  It was a fairly subtle piece of physics.  At that time we were worried it could be used as a precursor attack on the U.S. and suppress our retaliatory capability.  Since the effect wasn’t really understood before 1962, our military systems hadn’t protected against it up to that point.”

The United States military published hypothetical EMP attack scenarios

The United States EMP Commission was created by Congress in 2001. The commission is formally known as the Commission to Assess the Threat to the United States from Electromagnetic Pulse (EMP) Attack.

The EMP Commission was chaired by Dr. William Graham and many notable scientists participated. In 2008, the EMP Commission released the Critical National Infrastructures Report. This report described the likely consequences of a nuclear EMP on civilian infrastructure. Although this report covered the United States, most of the information can be generalized to other industrialized countries. The 2008 report was a follow-up to a more generalized report issued by the commission in 2004.

In written testimony delivered to the United States Senate in 2005, an EMP Commission staff member reported the following: “The EMP Commission sponsored a worldwide survey of foreign scientific and military literature to evaluate the knowledge, and possibly the intentions, of foreign states with respect to electromagnetic pulse (EMP) attack. The survey found that the physics of EMP phenomenon and the military potential of EMP attack are widely understood in the international community, as reflected in official and unofficial writings and statements. The survey of open sources over the past decade finds that knowledge about EMP and EMP attack is evidenced in at least Britain, France, Germany, Israel, Egypt, Taiwan, Sweden, Cuba, India, Pakistan, and Iraq under Saddam Hussein, Iran, North Korea, China, and Russia. Many foreign analysts–particularly in Iran, North Korea, China, and Russia–view the United States as a potential aggressor that would be willing to use its entire panoply of weapons, including nuclear weapons, in a first strike. They perceive the United States as having contingency plans to make a nuclear EMP attack and as being willing to execute those plans under a broad range of circumstances.”

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

The United States EMP Commission stated the following very alarming conclusion: “Long-known protections are almost completely absent in the civilian infrastructure of the United States and that large parts of U.S. military services were less-protected against EMP than during the Cold War. In public statements, the EMP experts on the EMP Commission recommended making electronic equipment and electrical components resistant to EMP — and maintaining spare parts inventories that would enable prompt repairs. The United States EMP Commission did not look at the civilian infrastructures of other nations.” In 2011, the Defense Science Board published a report about the ongoing efforts to defend critical military and civilian systems against EMP and other nuclear weapons effects.

Where we are and where we need to be

The sad reality is that America—at all levels of governance—is unprepared for an EMP nuclear attack. Despite the sound recommendations of both the 2004 and 2008 EMP Commissions as well as the current EMP Commission, U.S. government agencies have not planned for their response to an EMP attack out of the theoretical stages. This is very alarming considering the official consensus on the severity of the threat and on appropriate solutions as articulated by the EMP Commission. DHS and DOE have both independently identified the United States’ vulnerability to an EMP attack but have neither created emergency management plans nor acted to better protect critical U.S. infrastructure from an attack. The Department of Defense (DOD) has begun to adopt the recommendations of the EMP Commission, but U.S. forces remain vulnerable. State and local governments remain unaware and unprepared for the threat of an EMP attack.

Dr. James Jay Carafano, Baker Spring, and Dr. Richard Weitz wrote an article titled “Before the Lights Go Out: A Survey of EMP Preparedness Reveals Significant Shortfalls” which was published by the Heritage Foundation on August 15, 2011. The key points of their article are the following:

1. While the ability of an electromagnetic pulse (EMP) to inflict catastrophic damage on U.S. infrastructure has been a known fact for decades, a survey of congressional, federal, state, local, and international measures to deal with the threat reveals more complacency than action.

2. America—at all levels of governance—is unprepared for an EMP attack. Despite the clear recommendations of both the 2004 and 2008 EMP Commissions, as well as an official consensus among experts, U.S. government agencies have not moved their EMP-response planning beyond the theoretical stages. Initiatives are needed at all levels—from bilateral partnerships that focus on shared infrastructure to national leadership to state and local action.

3. An EMP disaster is the catastrophe that should never happen. The means to address and mitigate the dangers to critical infrastructure are at hand. The United States needs a greater understanding of the danger—and the determination to act.

Dr. James Jay Carafano, Baker Spring, and Dr. Richard Weitz recommended the following:

Build Comprehensive Missile Defenses. Maintaining the capacity to interdict nuclear-tipped missiles is the most effective measure to guard against a HEMP attack. The U.S. missile defenses are not keeping pace with the proliferation of threats. It is time to reverse course. Establishing a robust ballistic missile defense is the most effective means of addressing the future threats to the U.S. and its allies resulting from the proliferation of missile technology and weapons of mass destruction. The U.S. must pursue missile defense programs that can intercept missiles in the boost and ascent portions of flight. Among these programs are the Airborne Laser, which is a modified air-to-air interceptor missile, future versions of the Navy’s Standard Missile-3 (SM-3) interceptor, and, above all, reviving the development and deployment of space-based interceptors.

Develop a national plan to respond to space weather emergencies. As a 2008 report by the National Academies, “Severe Space Weather Events—Understanding Societal and Economic Impacts,” makes clear, “Modern society depends heavily on a variety of technologies that are susceptible to the extremes of space weather—severe disturbances…driven by the magnetic activity of the sun.” The first step in addressing this issue must be educating the public and policy communities at the federal, state, and local levels about the risks and response options. Additionally, any effective plan will require enhanced, reliable long-range space weather forecasts.

Forge a bipartisan consensus in Congress to act on this issue. The response to the EMP Commission’s findings has been uneven within the United States government, with the Department of Defense taking the initiative and the Department of Homeland Security apparently sitting idle. Congressional inaction has contributed to this uneven response.

Establish bilateral partnerships with other nations. If the unthinkable happens, the U.S. and other developed nations must be able to accept foreign aid in the event of catastrophes. The U.S. should consider hosting international disaster exercises to increase the ability of countries friendly with the United States to readily accept aid from one another when disaster strikes. For some critical infrastructure, the U.S. should promote establishing an industry-led, multinational rapid-response capability. Such a capability should be able to respond worldwide. Further, this could provide an effective mechanism to share best practices and integrate responses. This capability should be funded and controlled by the private sector to respond to threats to shared international critical infrastructure, such as telecommunications and the Western Hemisphere electrical grid.”

An EMP disaster is the catastrophe that should never happen. The means to address and mitigate the dangers to critical infrastructure are at hand. The United States needs a greater understanding of the danger—and the determination to act.

A high-altitude nuclear blast would cause widespread power outage and destroy electronics and millions will die

Scott Aaronson is the secretary of the Electricity Subsector Coordinating Council, a group of chief executives from 21 electric companies working with the Energy Department to examine the threat of an EMP nuclear attack on America.

Bill Gertz wrote an article titled “Government, Industry, Studying Threat of Nuclear Attack on Electric Grid” which was published in the Washington Free Beacon on May 19, 2016. He explained that U.S. power companies are studying ways to protect electric grids against a high-altitude nuclear blast and other-directed energy attacks that could severely disrupt electricity transmission.

Gertz said that Scott Aaronson, managing director for cyber and infrastructure security at the Edison Electric Institute (EEI), testified at a hearing of the Senate Committee on Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs in May 2016. He said that a consortium of U.S. electric companies is working with the Department of Energy (DOE) to study how to protect electric power grids from a nuclear blast-produced electromagnetic pulse attack or solar flares that could damage transformers and other electric components and shut down power for millions of Americans. Aaronson stated the following: “There are a lot of threats to the grid … from squirrels to nation states. And frankly, there have been more blackouts as a result of squirrels [gnawing wire insulation] than there are from nation states.”

The hearing of the Senate Committee on Homeland Security and Governmental Affair was called to examine threats to critical infrastructure ranging from cyber-attacks and criminal activities to terrorist sabotage and nation state nuclear attacks. Aaronson, whose institute represents all investor-owned U.S. electric companies, said in testimony that electromagnetic pulse is a concern and could be caused by a high-altitude nuclear blast or a directed energy weapon.

Gertz explained that the Electricity Subsector Coordinating Council, a group of chief executives from 21 electric companies and nine major industry associations, is working with the Energy Department to examine the threat. Aaronson, the council’s secretary, stated that the threat study is based on research done by the Pentagon and national laboratories. Aaronson told the members of the Senate Committee on Homeland Security and Governmental Affair the following: “This project is designed to enhance our understanding of system impact should such an attack occur and to explore the effectiveness of mitigation strategies, including hardening and recovery. The project will allow grid-specific research to inform the application of technologies that will increase grid resilience and accelerate recovery.”

A previous Government Accountability Office (GAO) study in March 2016 requested greater efforts to deal with the threat of an EMP attack against the electric grid. The report said that both the Department of Energy (DOE) and the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) should work more closely with electric companies on the problem. The GAO report concluded that “DHS and DOE, in conjunction with industry, have not established a coordinated approach to identifying and implementing key risk management activities to address EMP risks.” This is outrageous in view of the national security threat of an EMP nuclear attack upon America by any of its enemies!

Gertz pointed out the following: “North Korea is one nation said to be working on a nuclear EMP attack capability, which would involve launching a long-range missile and detonating a nuclear device over the United States. Iran could use EMP attacks if it successfully develops nuclear weapons in the future. Russia and China have missiles and nuclear weapons capable of high-altitude detonation. High-altitude EMP strikes are considered an attractive nuclear strike option because they would produce less blast damage and radiation than ground strikes. They also require less precise missile guidance systems. The U.S. electric power system is made up of three grids—western, central, and eastern—and is controlled by operational technology that security experts say is outdated and can be penetrated by hackers. Aaronson did not say what steps should be taken to protect or harden the grid against EMP strikes. A fact sheet produced by the Edison Electric Institute states that shielding transformers for the entire grid system would cost $20 billion, 10 times what some advocates have estimated.”

Gertz explained that Aaronson said that the main threat to the electric grid is the disruption of the power transmission system involving some 35,000 substations that he described as a “soft target and “the threats continue to evolve.” Another vulnerability explained by Aaronson is that “the electric grid involves the 200 to 700 large power transformers that if damaged or destroyed would disrupt power for long periods.” Aaronson said that if these transformers were damaged by cyber or physical attacks or EMP, they could be replaced by stockpiled spare transformers. Replacing a large transformer could take up to 18 months and would have to be procured from foreign suppliers, although Aaronson said that “under duress there are ways to procure transformers more quickly.”

The potential consequences are almost unimaginable

Peter Kelly-Detwiler wrote an article titled “Failure to Protect U.S. Against Electromagnetic Pulse Threat Could make 9/11 Look Trivial Someday” which was published by Forbes on July 31, 2014. He pointed out that in America today there have been an enormous increase of dependency on electronics, computers, and microelectronics.

Kelly-Detwiler explained the following: “An attack may never happen.  But the more vulnerable the U.S. is to such an attack, the more likely it is to be used against us.  In the former days, we worried about Russia.  Now we have to be concerned about North Korea and Iran. These could be launched from a not-so-elaborate container ship.  The rocket doesn’t have to be accurate.  It just has to go up.  It’s well within the capability of even an earlier Scud missile, of which thousands have been produced – it just has to have nuclear weapon on top. We have data indicating that the Iranians have launched their versions of Scuds off the Caspian Sea – not from land, but from the sea – and launched them over land.”

He also stated the following: “And we’ve also seen them launch missiles that have gone up and apparently exploded near their highest altitude – when you put those two ideas together – that is an EMP attack. Why is this so important?  Because a single missile with a warhead that actually doesn’t have to be all that large and has the potential to take out the U.S. power grid, destroy our electronics networks, and create an existential crisis like nothing the world has ever witnessed.”

The 2008 Report of the Commission to Assess the Threat to the United States from Electromagnetic Pulse Attack stated the following: “The electromagnetic pulse (EMP) generated by a high-altitude nuclear explosion is one of a small number of threats that can hold our society at risk of catastrophic consequences…A single EMP attack may seriously degrade or shut down a large part of the electric power grid in the geographic area of EMP exposure effective instantaneously. There is also the possibility of functional collapse of grids beyond the exposed one, as electrical effects propagate from one region to another…Should significant parts of the electric power infrastructure be lost for any substantial period of time, the Commission believes that the consequences are likely to be catastrophic, and many people may ultimately die for lack of the basic elements necessary to sustain life in dense urban and suburban communities.”

In fact, the EMP Commission is deeply concerned that such impacts are likely in the event of an EMP attack unless practical steps are taken to provide protection for critical elements of the electric system and for rapid restoration of electric power, particularly to essential services.

Kelly-Detwiler pointed out that America has become so efficient, technology-dependent, and highly leveraged that utilities would lack sufficient trained service personnel to address a disaster of this magnitude. An EMP nuclear attack would pass unnoticed through us, even as it fried the iPhones and Galaxies in our pockets, knocked out our telecommunications system, rendered our cars and computers without the ability to function, and took out our power grid. Kelly-Detwiler stated the following: “We would have little idea of the dread potentially awaiting us, because there would be no communications. No mobility. Nothing that our highly evolved, sophisticated, and electronic society relies on.”

Conclusion

It is very scary that the United States—at all levels —is unprepared for an EMP nuclear attack by enemy nations or an EMP provoked by solar flares despite its catastrophic consequences. The clear and sound recommendations of the 2004 and 2008 EMP Commissions and most recent EMP Commission Report have been ignored by all previous administrations, Congress, and the media even though an EMP nuclear attack is an immense threat to our survival.

This writer is extremely concerned that the Biden administration and its socialist Democratic Party in complete control of Congress will cut to pieces the budget of the Pentagon when China and Russia have developed hypersonic vehicles with nuclear weapons that cannot be stopped by our anti-missile missiles as well as Russia’s and China’s super electronic pulse weapons. The most critical need of America is to protect at whatever the cost our electrical grid and electronics. We need to write to Congress, newspapers, speak on radio and television demanding that our government must protect us now! The Biden administration needs to increase the budget of the Pentagon but unfortunately with so many socialists in his party it is highly unlikely that it would do it.

It is astounding that America does not have a hypersonic glide vehicle like China’s WU-14. It is useless and counterproductive to spend trillions for COVID 19 relief, climate change, free colleges, student debts relief, etc., when up to 90% of us will die by an EMP attack. It is insane to be discussing how the Biden administration can go after Trump supporters when communists, socialists, conservatives, Democrats, Republicans, and independents will die in an EMP event. This is outrageous in view of the national security threat of an EMP nuclear attack upon America by any of its enemies!

Russia’s Super Electronic Pulse Weapon Russia’s Super Electronic Pulse Weapon Time is of the essence. America needs to spend billions to protect its people. Hopefully, the Biden administration and Republicans and Democrats in Congress would take immediate action.

America must survive and prosper with God’s help!

1 thought on “US in Great Danger of EMP Attack

  1. Dear Frank, How can we get some real funding to address this problem? We have to move away from reliance on Presidential Executive Orders and move towards bi-partisan legislation to create the proper analysis and countermeasures to the EMP threat. Many of us working on EMP are volunteers such as myself as a member of Infragard, and the Infragard NDRC. My recent thesis at the University of New Haven was on the EMP topic.
