Congresswoman: “100% Chance of a Severe Geo-Magnetic Event Capable of Crippling Our Electric Grid”

Do you LOVE America?


    With the sun’s solar cycle in its peak stage this year and militaries around the world rapidly developing super electro-magnetic pulse (EMP) weapons, the threat of a catastrophic event that disables the U.S. power grid has never been greater.


    In 2003 a solar flare emitted by the sun was the most powerful in recorded observational history, measuring in at levels so high that had it hit earth it would have likely disabled everything from the internet and mobile phones, to water utility plants and the whole of the U.S. electricity infrastructure. And, earlier this year in another near-miss, experts claimed the world escaped another large-scale EMP catastrophe.

    While an outlier, the real possibility of an EMP event – be it natural or man made – is more probable than most people think:

     We are only one act of madness away from a social cataclysm unlike anything our country has ever known.
    -Congressman Trent Franks (R-AZ), Senior Member House Armed Service Committee

    EMP is one of the small number of threats that could hold at risk the continued existence of U.S. civil society.
    -Dr. Robert Hermann, Commissioner US Congress EMP Commission

    Just one violent active region on the sun can cause continent-wide, perhaps even planetary-scale impacts to our critical infrastructure.
    -John Kappenman, Principal Investigator US Congress EMP Commission

    The Likelihood of a severe geo-magnetic event capable of crippling our electric grid is 100%.
    -Congresswoman Yvette Clarke (D-NY), Senior Member House Homeland Security Committee

    Via Activist Post and Stan Deyo:

    The fall-out from a grid-down scenario would be absolutely devastating, as noted by a spokesman for the Center for Security Policy who recently responded to the potential for EMP capable weapons being deployed over the United States:

    And experts forecast if such an attack were a success, it effectively could throw the U.S. back into an age of agriculture.

    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.

    NASA has already begun implementing plans to deal with large scale power failure from a space weather anomaly, and NASA head Charles Bolden recently issued a video alert through the NASA Headquarters of Emergency Operations in which he claimed he had “been made aware of some things” that prompted him to urge NASA employees and their families to prepare for an event that could come like 9/11.

    This was recently echoed by outgoing DHS Secretary Janet Napolitano, who has said that a cyber attack or natural disaster on the U.S. power grid the likes of which we have never seen is imminent.

    Following Napolitano’s comments it was revealed that the United States, Canada, Mexico and hundreds of private companies were planning a massive power grid down drill to simulate what an EMP attack or solar flare might look like.

    The disaster drill is being described as a crisis practice unlike anything the real power grid has ever experienced. The GridEX II drill Nov. 13-14 will focus primarily on how governments will react if the electrical grid fails and, for instance, the food supply chain collapses.

    As we saw in limited grid-down scenarios like those following Hurricane Katrina and Hurricane Sandy, when the grid goes down you better be ready. Within 72 hours of such an event taking place the supply chain infrastructure in affected regions will undoubtedly collapse. This is a certainty, as evidenced by what we played out within a few days of Hurricane Sandy hitting the east coast last year:

    SHOCK: 72 Hours After Grid-Down: Starvation, Supply Shortages, Food Lines, No Clean Water, No Gas, Transportation Standstill

    For tens of thousands of east coast residents that worst case scenario is now playing out in real-time. No longer are images of starving people waiting for government handouts restricted to just the third-world.

    In the midst of crisis, once civilized societies will very rapidly descend into chaos when essential infrastructure systems collapse.

    Though the National Guard was deployed before the storm even hit, there is simply no way for the government to coordinate a response requiring millions of servings of food, water and medical supplies

    Many east coast residents who failed to evacuate or prepare reserve supplies ahead of the storm are being forced to fend for themselves.

    Frustration and anger have taken hold, as residents have no means of acquiring food or gas and thousands of trucks across the region remain stuck in limbo.

    Despite our modern infrastructure and technological advancements, we are one catastrophe away from being thrown back into the stone age.

    If the grid goes down the gas stops pumping, America’s trucks stop running, and grocery store shelves stop getting stocked.

    Within three days of that all hell breaks loose.

    We’re talking about nothing short of a total breakdown in law & order and tens of millions of people scavenging, looting and killing for food.

    The threat is as real as it gets, but you can insulate yourself should it come to pass if you take the steps to prepare now.

    It starts with getting prepared for a two week power outage, and then focusing your efforts on more long-term plans that can protect you against the possibility of EMP, solar flare, and a host of other potential wide-scale disasters.

    Former Congressman Roscoe Bartlett issued what is probably the most stark warning about the U.S. power grid, which he says is not only outdated, but incapable of being repaired in a timely manner should elements of it be paralyzed by an EMP weapon of geo-magnetic storm:

    We could have events in the future where the power grid will go down and it’s not, in any reasonable time, coming back up. For instance, if when the power grid went down some of our large transformers were destroyed, damaged beyond use, we don’t make any of those in this country. They’re made overseas and you order one and 18 months to two years later they will deliver it. Our power grid is very vulnerable. It’s very much on edge. Our military knows that.

    There are a number of events that could create a situation in the cities where civil unrest would be a very high probability.

    I think that those who can, and those who understand, need to take advantage of the opportunity when these winds of strife are not blowing to move their families out of the city.

    When we talk about collapse – our grid going down is as horrific a scenario as one can imagine.

    Preparing one second after is going to be too late.

      1. I am afraid the current Obama regime will destroy the whole country economically way ahead of any natural disaster.

        • Sorry but I don’t believe this load either. We have been bombarded for the last five years about gloom and doom sun spots solar flares outages, EMPs, the grid down, grid cyber attacks, telabon terrorists, and the like and what has occurred, effing nothing, that I personally have seen and this is just another Woobi Goobi its coming chicken little attack. And yet, believe congress people? Really?thats the lyingest bunchofucks yet!!!!!!
          What the point in getting all worked up over this anyway. If it happens, it happens!
          I hope you and others know that if this occurred, our esteemed leadership would be safely tucked away in some well protected concrete, tax financed tunnel somewhere. Well fed playing xbox, sucking down liquor having a good time. They couldn’t no more give a flying shit if you and I lived or died.
          Get real!

          • 9 years ago, IF the solar flare had been 2-3 days earlier, there would have already been a total grid failure everywhere. These solar flares happen MUCH MORE commonly than people realize. A solar flare would not cause an E-2 or E-3 type of EMP that a nuke in the atmosphere would cause that fries everything electronic. The solar flares cause an E-1 EMP that would fry every long wire that there is.

            As people doubting that the Sun is much closer to this happening should read Space Weather as they had an article that talked about that when the Sun is in the maximum cycle which it is now until early 2014 and little activity is going on, watch out. In 1859 the Carringtom Event was during a similar low activity during the same high cycle, and a massive flare occurred. Other times smaller, but very strong flares happened. It is like the Sun, instead of releasing a bunch of samller burps, it lets loose a solar system ripping belch that causes a tremendous EMP IF directed towards the Earth.

            I take wahtever the government says as a lie now, but from what I have read about solar weather, this has much potential. There is an almost absolute chance of another hitting the Earth again. I would also not only be concerned about an EMP, but sometimes these flares get big enough to cause harmful cosmic radiation to hit the planet. The Sun is something never to take for granted what it is capable of at a moment’s notice.

            • @ BI:

              What is the likelihood of that comet nobody is talking about passing so close to our sun that it causes electromagnetic disturbances, earthquakes, or worse?

              NASA has been strangely silent on this subject considering that initially they deemed it “the comet of the century”.

              • Something else that bothers me about this push to force smart meters on us, is that if we do have an EMP powerful enough to take the grid down, the repairs will be exponentially MORE EXPENSIVE and take a whole lot more time and work to repair the damage. They’ll probably have to replace every single one of them.

                What they have done is essentially to GUARANTEE that we, the little people, will be without power for years or most likely decades (assuming they even try to repair the existing power grid at all). Then, who really thinks they have stocked up on enough meters to adequately fix all of us?

                THE OLD METERS were not computerized and may have survived an EMP, but I’m betting that the new “smart ones” ABSOLUTELY WILL NOT SURVIVE AN EMP.

                • Will the two who down-thumbed this post please explain why? Are there technical holes in my theory? Have anything to add that would be useful?

                  Or do you just prefer the color red over green?

                  • Just a shot in the dark on the random thumbs down but does the meter matter in terms of delivering power or just monitoring power? If the meter stops working does power stop flowing through the wires? I would say probably not but I don’t know.

                    Also anything that takes out the meters is going to cause such a catastrophic event that getting anything running is unlikely much less power to each house. 🙁

                  • Sixpack: I don’t see any votes at all on your status. I think the voting procedure is messed up. I haven’t been able to vote for weeks, and have complained bitterly. I noticed today, that just after I post a comment, it’s possible to vote. I also notice that my comments get shoved WAY down the page, and they’re replies to an original post. Apparently, I’m not one of the favored dozen or so. It’s sort of okay, because I enjoy the community, but it’s still irritating.

                  • Perhaps whomever did it just doesn’t like to read something that makes sense. Different strokes…

                  • @HisArmsWide, the meters control the power input. No meter, No power. They can even be controlled remotely.

                • I could care less about the meters…’s big, old substation transformers and the SCADA system for controlling the grid that are the problem.

                  IF the grid goes down for any extended period, there won’t be enough folks left around to manufacture the replacement parts and install them in anyone’s lifetime currently reading this.

                  And that is assuming pretty much ALL life in the northern hemisphere ( a fair chunk of the the southern ) isn’t killed off by radiation from the nuke plants when they finally run out of diesel fuel for the backup generators….Fukishimi times 100……

                  We’re just about too stupid as a race to live…..

                  • All true, JO, but then add the repair/replacement of individual meters on top of that. They don’t need to send repairmen to every house in the country to fix a substation, and there are far less of them.

                    I guess my point was that installing smart meters aren’t such a smart idea, when you have to repair large-scale damage, like what we’d have from an EMP. It just adds to the cost, time and work.

                • @ sixpack……I’m no electrician ,but I’m pretty sure the meter is just a measuring device . If your meter doesn’t work and you have power at the transformer then you can fix it by yanking out the meter and put two metal bars across the holders to restore your power. Of course you would need insulated gloves & pliers !! I wouldn’t wait for MONTHS !!…….mm

                  • Yes your absolutely right. I myself have done it in a pinch. I recommend using copper bars.

                  • Mountain man you are correct. I work for the power company and all you would have to do is jumper the meter.

                • No meter no problem. I have a jumper. Are they that smart?

                  • I forget, how many thousands of dollars it is for a fine for jumping your power, in addition to the jail time? If it was THAT easy, there are millions of people who would be doing it.

                    Here’s a link to a .pdf document from “energycite”, a smart meter company. You’ll find that, according to this document, THEY CAN shut down your power remotely, along with a few other disturbing capabilities.


                  • @sixpac
                    You just assume that there isn’t a million people supplementing there income by using jumpers a few weeks a month to ease there electric bill. It is so easy. There is also people who leave the meters in but have a hidden jumper that might run expensive things like AC, connected year round. I am not one of them, but I have seen them. You don’t hear about people getting busted for doing it, because the electric companies don’t want to spread the idea out there that is being done.

                    You are so naive, nice try.

                • I agree, EMP’s are more effective at destroying “green” and energy efficient devices, of which nearly 99% of new devices tend to be. Vacuum tubes were much better at resisting this, look at the Starfish Prime Test…. IT WOULD BE SOOOO MUCH WORSE NOW WITH EVERYTHING BEING SO LOW VOLTAGE!

                • Throw the main breaker, pull the meter, install 2 copper buss strips….no problemo.

              • Comets don’t have the mass to cause any problems with the sun.

            • So, Be Informed, should we offer burnt sacrifices to the Sun god to appease it? What should we do? Should we go hide somewhere in a Faraday closet? I find it less than amusing that some are really worried about an event like this over which they have no control, while the INSECT that is in the White House is destroying our country by the minute….

              • @ Cameroon. Absolutely nothing anyone can do with the Sun. From what I have read, a Faraday Cage is not necessary with a solar flare because it ONLY affects long wire, the types of currents that are carried over power lines. To those that can afford it for back up electricity would be solar and wind, even water powered for people that live next to a tidal area or by a moving stream. Natural gas powered generators that you could rig up to your natural gas utilities is something many people do. Even without power you would think that the natural gas would still flow to home for awhile. Propane will also run these generators, and again people that can afford it could run a generator for a long time on those 1000 gallon tanks of gas that so many people depend on in rural areas.

                Main issue is to prepare like you would for all the other emergencies. Many people will die without power, but those prepared can live without it. People lived for thousands of years without power as well as billions of people do now.

                @ Calfornia Resident. ANY comet is dangerous because its path is not predictable. Those comets when heated can speed up and change course. The comet that is suppose to get very close to mars is the one that everyone should be very concerned about. Should it impact Mars the debris from this will be thrown into space. Those masses of rock material will very likely come into the path of many objects in the solar system, especially Mars’ closest neighbor, Earth. Fortunately there are countless amateur sky watchers and the government cannot hide something like this. The truth will get out as long as the internet and ham radio stays up, or the government doesn’t completely clamp down on all communications.

                • You can have a 1000 gallon propane tank but your going to use 1/2 gallon of propane per hour. Your engine will need an oil change every 100 hours tops. Your talking 20 oil changes so don’t forget the oil and filters.

                  To “ball park” fuel usage use the BTUs in the fuel (propane is 91,000 per gallon) and the engine efficiency (15%) and then the BTUs in a KW (3413). Therefore one gallon of propane will make roughly 4KW or roughly 40 amps at 110v. At low load you will use 20 amps so cut in half its 1/2 gallon per hour.

                  • Actually, just adding oil will keep it running. I have often run a car for 50,000 miles without changing oil, just topping it off. I did change the filter every 10,000 or so miles though. But, if it is an emergency, you will run it until it dies anyway. There will be no refueling at the local gas station so the generator will just be a piece of junk when the fuel is gone.

                  • Actually at 3600 RPM (sync speed) 100 hours is probably equal to about 10,000 miles in a car being an automobile engine at 60 MPH runs at 2000 or so RPM. Your asking the engine to go 200,000 miles of wear w/o oil change.

                    At a minimum I would change the oil / filter every 500 hrs and blend the spent oil with gasoline into a diesel substitute for barter.

                  • Solar power or wind will be the only way. I’ve torn down enough engines to know gas/diesel will not work. Destroy’s the rings. 50,000 with out changing oil? Were you eating peyote? Surely you were adding oil…

                  • And when the gas is gone, use a still and make more fuel?

                  • I had a small water cooled generator that I ran for almost a year on a 1000 gallon propane tank for 2 hours per day to charge up my batteries for my inverter and heat my hot water. This provided light, hot water, refrigeration and things like tv and computer for a family of four.

                • BI, I guess you have given us the clue to determine the source of the disruption.

                  If only the grid goes down and the car still runs, it’s the sun.

                  If the car quits at the same time the grid goes down, it is the corp attacking us with an EMP.

                  A useless fact if either happens, but still good to know.

                  If your lights don’t come on and the car runs, bug out quickly and thank mother nature. If the car doesn’t work either, the banksters have declared HOT war and you should act accordingly.

                  • What is this CORP you speak of? Is it corporations that depend on us to buy stuff for them to stay a CORP or is it something else?

                  • The CORP is the dummy corporation known as United States, established in 1913. It is the corporation Obama sits as head of, and has no relation to the Constitution of the United States of America. It is owned by the banksters, and located in the District of Columbia according to the UCC.

                    When the Federal Reserve was created, they also created along with the United States dummy corporation a “Democracy” to support it by way of the 17th Amendment removing the states representation in the senate by arbitrarily changing the corporate constitution of the United States.

                    There is more to the story, but that’s it in a nutshell.

              • Actually, Cameroon, I’m a multi-tasker, meaning I can walk and chew bubble gum at the same time.

                I can worry about more than one thing at a time and that’s a good thing, because prepping is multi-directional to begin with.

                Anyway, with all the shit they’re throwing at us all at once, we clearly can’t afford to be fixated on any one thing at a time…I leave that to the sheep.

                • The only thing i fixate on is the shit i absolutely need to accomplish on any given day, the rest of this stuff is in the perifory or borders on entertainment, the only thing not so entertaining is the crap these government pricks are doing, that stuff is down right infuriating.

                  • Kula im with you on that. With all i got going on the farm tractors can run the generator while i finish up the rest of the chores. To the rest of you people 80,s model tractors are without computers or any other electronic boxes. so take note these are bought at a very reasonable price. A 50-70 hp class tractor will cost about 6500, these will run a generator for 24 hrs on about 20 gals of fuel. Where i live power outages are the norm in the winter ( we have been without power for as long as 2 weeks at a time). to the people that say you do not need to change your oil , you ought to rebuild some of the engines that have been taken care of like that, the rocker boxes all coked up from the dirt and other nasty things like no oil drainage to the oil pan from blockages. i use lucas fuel and oil treatments in everything i own. the fuel treatment lubes the system so the injectors do not seize up when i need the equipment the most, the oil treatment has a gear clinging ability to stay where its needed under heavy loads, so take note im still here and doing my job when alot of others who took shortcuts are long gone. wildman out

              • It doesn’t matter if it’s a solar EMP or Obama, you do the same thing – prepare for the worst, hope for the best, stock up on supplies, and stop buying what the PTB are selling. No, you can’t stop a solar flare, but you can at least attempt to mitigate the results of one within your personal life. Or would you rather just give up and lay down like a door mat?

              • You can stock up on food, water, a way to keep warm for you and your family.

            Oh, wait, she does. It’s her BIL’s project and he just needs a few billion dollars funding!!!

            • a while back the GRID PROTECTION ACT passed the House with strong support on both sides of the aisle

              when it got to the Senate it got shot down


              thanks to these idiots
              we are ALL at risk

              EMP and solar flares should not be such a threat
              and they wouldn’t be if it wasn’t for the douche bags in D.C.

              • Satori, that bill wouldn’t have really mattered at this late stage of the game, anyway. It’s way too late to try and protect any part of the grid. won’t matter so much how the grid gets taken out. Once it’s gone, it’s gone, and it will take years to get it back up, if ever. it will be all over except for the crying. The lifestyles we currently enjoy will be gone forever. I’m still prepping for it. some good things can come from out of it. braveheart

            • JayJay: Thats what I was thinking too. Only more like 2-3 Trillion us dollars, with 30+Million Amnety Illeagles as the “worker crews” revamping the entire nations elec grid.

              I read somewheres that Hobammy and his varous Czars plan is to switch america from AC to DC current nationwide.

              So his pals can be who fed govnt grants fund to supply tons of windmills and a desert full of solar panels.

              if true? Look for vast scam swindle like that buddy of bammys who got all that fed cash then went bankrupt a year later…Solyndra! Wonder how much of initial $500 million fed grant cash went into owners and dem party pockets/coffers?

              If a real EMP ever does happen, I hope EVERY alphabet agencys files disappear…Because all MY files and names are kept inside my Head where no emp or anything else can diminish my info. Just hope my ammo outlasts my names list!

              • AC to DC? Are you really that stupid?

                • Um yep, he is that stupid. Them guy did read it somewhere so it has to be true. Makes sense too.

          • yeah

            just because something has never happened
            means it never will
            right ???

            tell that to the Jews as they were stuffed into the cattle cars

            tell that to the intelligentsia of Pol Pot’s Cambodia

            tell that to the tens of millions of Russian citizens
            who were sent to the Gulag

            powerful solar flares have hit the earth in the past
            this is FACT
            they were of little consequence since there was no electrical grid

            a major flare today would be different

            and personally speaking
            I’m not “worked up” over anything

            I’m prepared though

            I don’t lose any sleep about any potential catastrophes

            I’m prepared

            preparation is insurance

            just like home,auto and life

            hopefully I’ll never have to use it

            • Yeah but we have the greatest president ever running things now. Just a word from him and all will be well. So quit worrying.

              • We also Have Best Friends & Allies in Mid East,Israel.

                1996: A General Accounting Office report, “Defense Industrial Security: Weaknesses in US Security Arrangements With Foreign-Owned Defense Contractors,” found that according to intelligence sources, “Country A,” (identified by intelligence sources as Israel, Washington Times, 22 February 1996),
                “conducts the most aggressive espionage operation against the United States of any US ally.”

                The Defense Investigative Service circulates a memo warning US military contractors that,

                “Israel aggressively collects (US) military and industrial technology.”
                The report stated that Israel obtains information using,
                “ethnic targeting, financial aggrandizement, and identification and exploitation of individual frailties,” of US citizens.

                The Jerusalem Post (30 August 1996) quoted the report,
                ““Classified military information and sensitive military technologies are high-priority targets for the intelligence agencies of this country.”
                The report described, “An espionage operation run by the intelligence organization responsible for collecting scientific and technologic information for (Israel) paid a US government employee to obtain US classified military intelligence documents.”
                The Washington Report on Middle East Affairs (Shawn L. Twing, April 1996) noted that this was,

                “a reference to the 1985 arrest of Jonathan Pollard, a civilian US naval intelligence analyst who provided Israel’s LAKAM espionage agency an estimated 800,000 pages of classified US intelligence information.”

                The GAO report also noted that, “Several citizens of (Israel) were caught in the United States stealing sensitive technology used in manufacturing artillery gun tubes.”

                An Office of Naval Intelligence document, “Worldwide Challenges to Naval Strike Warfare” reported that,

                “US technology has been acquired (by China) through Israel in the form of the Lavi fighter and possibly SAM (surface-to-air) missile technology.”
                Jane’s Defense Weekly (28 February 1996) noted that, “until now, the intelligence community has not openly confirmed the transfer of US technology (via Israel) to China.” The report noted that this, “represents a dramatic step forward for Chinese military aviation.” (Flight International, 13 March 1996).

            • Satori, you may think you are prepared, but you will be fried to death by the Sun god just like the rest of us unprepared dolts…..

              • what’s gonna be the death of me

                is no air conditioning in August !!!

          • ignorance of science doesn’t exonerate you from reality.

          • You’re right. Ever since the Israeli Mossad/CIA/Neo-Con false flag operation on 9-11, the American public has been bombarded with non-stop, ever escalating quantities of endless fear & scare mongering and this is coming directly from the highest levels of our enemy owned and hijacked government.

            Notice that it did not stop or fade away, once the cocaine brain damaged, mass murdering slab of despicably evil human scum from Crawford, Texas slithered out of the White House and was replaced by the illegal alien from Kenya? This clearly shows that both of the major political parties are on board with this fear and scare mongering agenda – and it also means that there is a purpose behind why they are doing it and both parties agree on that purpose.

            Bird Flu, Swine Flu, H1N1, H1N5, Asian Flu, smallpox, global warming, global cooling, GMO poison in our food supply, Morgellan’s Disease, we need to fear anyone who supports the Constitution and who is a fan of the 2nd Amendment and who correctly believes that we have dangerous criminals who have seized control of our government, we need to believe the ADL and SPLC who constantly tell us that anyone who White who refuses to hate their own race and who has the gall to think that White European people have a right to preserve their race and survive are mentally insane, dangerous, domestic ‘extremists’ and potential ‘terrorists’.

            The list could go on for pages and pages. This scare and fear mongering campaign is part of an agenda – and I have a feeling that we had better find out what that agenda is and stop it, or else we are not going to like the alternative consequences.

          • Well, I believe it, although not because a Democrat female said so.

            I called and wrote my Congress Critters today about Syria. They weren’t interested in my opinion. I also begged them to defund ObamaCare and impeach Obummer and Biden. Also asked that they remove Kerry the Creep and run a senility test on McCain, who needs to crawl back to Arizona and die.

            We prep for several reasons. Primarily, because we are afraid of our government, but also because natural events are becoming spooky. Every time I hear the word “Syria”, I buy another can of food. Every time I hear about the possible melt-down in a natural occurrence, I buy another can of food and another gallon of water. I fear Hillary more than I do Obama, but we probably will not last long enough for her to destroy us.

            • I have to say at least the CT democratic delegation is questioning the need to be in Syria. Big write up in paper today. So far they are saying they don’t support it. Well see how they vote.

          • Your description of the U.S. “great” govt. dictators is correct, and that they care absolutely nothing about the well-being of America, except for their own worthless, selfish, thieving, traitor asses. (I think America has A FEW worthwhile leaders, but most as you describe. Certainly, the piece of garbage in the White House fits your description.)

          • Google the Electric Universe.
            Once you begin to understand the implications of electrical interactions between heavenly bodies, you’ll be more concerned.
            And if the grid does go down for any length of time, we could have over a hundred Fukushimas in the States.
            Things would be vastly different if we were to have another Carrington Event like the one in the 1800s.

        • I have a 1965 VW Baja Bug. 165 HP (2180)… Five wires…. One fuel line…. No computer. A ham, CB, GRMS’s, an am/fm radio, an older laptop, and a 2000 watt inverter…. All in my faraday cage. A cow that I can ride, (well sort of), An older enduro dirt pike, a Polaris atv, and two mountain bikes…. No computers on any of them. Lots of fuel. Four 285 watt sharp solar panels in the basement ready to go. (got em used on EBAY). Three Mikes® windmills (un affected by EMP/CME). A flow Jack and a solar well pump. Half of the home is now off the grid and the part that is I can do without. Yep that preper stuff looks like it is paying off. Too bad Obumer will bankrupted the country or start world war III to show “he’s Tough” before the CME gets here. Oh…. And thanks for the RINO’s for jumping in bed with him….. good job…… PRAY, PLAN, PREP, FORM TEAMS.

          • Riding a Cow. Not that would be a sight to see.

            • If you ride it into battle would it be a “tacticow” maneuver?

              • Mongo, on Blazing Saddles rode a cow.

                • It’s safer than milking a bull…

              • Actually it is called “T-bone Tactics”…. Similar to the famed “Prime Rib” flanking maneuver…

              • It’s a “battle cow”, don’t you watch “Masters of the Universe” LOL. My nephew never blinked during that cartoon and can name every character. He almost knows every single line of dialogue…

                I guess he’ll be telling the stories around a camp fire in the future, instead.

                • Classico, Asiago, Romano,

                  Pure Water.

              • Now that’s just UDDER nonsense. It would be an unorthidox MOOve, but with so much at STEAK, you could realistically make it feasible. Just don’t be JERKY about having a cow to ride when others are without, and you’ll be fine. If the cow ends up on your plate, however, you’ll have to HOOF it. No BULL about it.

                • Moo……

                • cute. LOLA

                • Would that make it a cowdillac, or a mooic?

            • You can’t…just don’t ask how I know…Jager god told me to get on can’t…

          • Inside man. Do you realize the person quoted in the title of this article is a democrat and well….in congress. You and all the morons here have zero integrity. Look at all the comments agreeing with the democrat congresswoman. Isn’t she part of the two groups you all rail about being retards? Hmmmm. Guess if it fits your world view , putting aside integrity isn’t so bad. At least not for all you losers.

            • So Udog, you’re saying that if someone says something we happen to agree with, we can’t acknowledge it, if it so happens that they are a member of congress?

              I know it’s “US or THEM” and politicians are generally greedy, self-serving scum, but that’s a little drastic, don’tcha think?

              • No six pack. Read the comments and keep it real. Don’t lie.

            • Urban dog, yes, we know person is another commie in congress. but we’ve already been aware of the threat to the power grid for a long time from legitimate sources. Read “One Second After” or “Lights Out”. both are very plausible scenarios. in fact, I think we’ll have a combination of both. that’s what i’m prepping for. Life without juice. it’s coming. don’t know how it will happen until after the fact. won’t really matter how, but it’s coming and life in this country will never be the same again. it will be horrific.

              • Urban Kitty Kat… (sorry I could not resist). Unlike progressives who only see it their way while they speak to us about tolerance, I know that you can pick meat off of most bones. There are some democrats that I would quote because they are conservative thinkers on certain things. I am not a republican or democrat… I am a Patriot. According to my boss, that makes me a terrorist. Go figure… serve my country for 2+ decades and then be told I am a terrorist. Most people that post here think this way. Then we have folks that just come here to snark, bitch, moan, name call, and complain… like any good progressive… no positive things to say.. they usually have limited friends (who when the SHTF will desert them), no real answer on what to do, and no leadership skills…. Kinda like ….well … the guy at 1600 Pennsylvania avenue Washington D.C.

                • Urban kitty cat???? Wow that is funny.

              • “One Second After”, my favorite of the “doomer” books! Does anyone know how long lamp oil will remain viable? We have four Alladin Lamps from Lehman’s, and they emit a really respectable amount of light and some heat. I don’t know how “horrific” life will be away from the larger cities. It will be terrible in them, but not necessarily terrible in the deep country. We will probably be very uncomfortable, though. I’m working on finding an area which will stay cool in summer. So far, I’ve only come up with making a box which will fit down the well for diary products and medicines. Although this has been a relatively mild summer in NW Ohio, it was very hot for a few days, and would kill or undermine a person who was seriously ill. None of us can stand to lose strength or immunity during hot weather. (Both my husband and I suffered moderate heat stroke during a haying marathon, and still cannot handle heat.)

                I also commented to the extremely bored kid manning the Washington phone banks, that when your best friend (Great Britain) calls “bullshit” on a plan, it’s probably best to drop the plan. The bored kid said he was offended by that term. (Please! D.C. is the biggest obscenity out there, next to the Mooch’s butt.) I expect nothing back for the thirty minutes I spent calling and writing, but that confirms how screwed we are.

                Opinion only….I think we have a close to 100% chance of some type of EMP, easier to survive than a nuclear attack or bio-hazards, and an equally good chance of a natural disaster. Keep prepping!

            • UDog.

              I just want to express my thanks for the Dem that has warned us about an EMP. We just never knew, thus thanks.

              PS. Could you have this same dem warn us about WWIII.

              • Shhh! You don’t want to hurt Obummer’s feelings. Democrats never start wars! Just Bush and the Republicans. Let’s see how long it takes to make Syria the fault of the first Bush term. Have you forgotten Benghazi and the IRS yet? If so, it’s working!

            • Urban dog: So you are saying we can’t agree with somebody along logical lines instead of party lines? What a good little commie you are.

          • I have a lifetime supply of cocktail umbrellas and a line on a thousand “Wallace for Pres” buttons; beat that

            • Dang! Beat me by 300 Wallace buttons. And I thought I was prepared…

              • I got 40 Hubert Humphry ones. It is next to my Beatles Buttons. And we all know, Dewey Wins!!!!

                Like to chat, but am watching 3 of my favorite movies…’Plan 9 From Outer Space’,…’The Attack of the Killer Tomatoes’,…’The Day The Earth Stood Still’….

                Smokin, glad to see you are back. Thought maybe you got too close to Area 51, or maybe started your own Roswell investigation team, or joined the Bermuda Triangle Search and Rescue.

                Nonetheless, Welcome Back!

                • Thanks ugly. Nothing serious like Area 51. Just needed a couple weeks therapy after that last student. (he wanted to read the owners manual to figure out how to cancel the signal light…while merging onto the freeway in LA!) Nice kid, but thank goodness he decided on a career change.
                  Now, about those killer tomatoes…

                  • Rush hour on the Santa Monica, he might have actually had time to read that manual…

                  • sixpack- come to think of it… I did finish War And Peace one time between West Covina and Ontario!

                  • Well, you know what they say: “Keep one hand on the wheel and one eye on the rear view mirror…”

                • Tremors, Jericho and The Day After.

                  • I think they got the idea for the monsters in tremors from observing the IRS in action…or maybe it was the FBI, anyway, they pop up outta nowhere and grab you for making too much noise.

            • Funny but that’s what I wear on my beat up cowboy hat. What are they worth. The Wallace button not the cocktail umbrella? Assassinate, that’s what they tried to do to Wallace. Hey Paranoid didn’t see you on the news at the Casper gun show. Trekker Out.

            • Paranoid funny you would say that, that’s what I wear on my beat up old cowboy hat. The Wallace button, not the cocktail umbrella. What are they worth? Yeah,they tried to assassinate George. Hey! I didn’t see you on the news at the Casper gun show. Trekker Out.

              • Am in Ohio for another week going to Medina gun show this weekend. XOXOXOXOX

          • Great tough guy…. Can’t shoot hoops, hit a golf ball, throw a baseball, shoot a shotgun, or shoot from the hip.

            My kind of girl.

            • Sorry ’bout your luck.

        • You could not have said anything more frightening. Only because there is a high probability that you are correct. God help us all !

        • Yeah, Tactical, the EMP (Exceptionally Maladroit President) has already struck.

          • EMP also = Exceptionally Mooooslim President

            • 2003 and 2004: Good yrs for Swindlers!

              2003: The United States invade Iraq on 19 March, which this year is the holy, “Day of Purim,” in the Jewish calendar. This, “Day of Purim,” is a day the Jews celebrate their victory over Ancient Babylon, now based within the borders of Iraq, how interesting.

              What is also significant is that the previous U.S. led invasion of Iraq ended on the Day of Purim ten years earlier with the slaughter of 150,000 fleeing Iraqis under the current President’s father, George Herbert Walker Bush. Purim is also the time when the Jews are encouraged to get bloody revenge against their perceived enemies.

              Ancient Babylon, I mean Iraq, is now one of six nations left in the world who don’t have a Rothschild controlled central bank. This war is mainly about stealing Iraq’s water supply for Israel and is being fought with the blood of the American military which the State of Rothschild, I mean Israel control.

              Israel has always struggled for water, it had to steal the Golan Heights from Syria which provided Israel with one third of its fresh water 36 years before, yet still in Israel water extraction has surpassed replacement by 2.5 billion metres in the last 25 years.

              This means the water is far more precious to them than the oil reserves which are the second largest reserves of oil on the planet.

              2004: Two years into an investigation of AIPAC’s (The American Israel Public Affairs Committee – the largest political lobbying group in the USA with over 65,000 members whose only purpose is to use the USA for the purposes of Israel) possible role as a spy front for Israel, Ashkenazi Jew, Larry Franklin, a mid-level Pentagon Analyst is observed by the FBI giving classified information to two officials of AIPAC suspected of being Israeli spies.

              AIPAC hires lawyer Nathan Lewin to handle their legal defense, the same lawyer who defended suspected Israeli spy Stephen Bryen in 1978. Larry Franklin worked in the Pentagon Office of Special Plans, run by Richard Perle, at the time Perle (who was caught giving classified information to Israel back in 1970) was insisting that Iraq was crawling with weapons of mass destruction requiring the United States to invade and conquer Iraq.

              There were no WMDs, of course, and Perle has dumped the blame for the, “bad intelligence,” on George Tenet. But what is known is that the Pentagon Office of Special Plans was coordinating with a similar group in Israel, in Ariel Sharon’s office.

              With two suspected Israeli spies (at least) inside the office from which the lies that launched the war in Iraq originated, it appears that the people of the United States are the victims of a deadly hoax, a hoax that started a war using the blood and money of American citizens for the purposes of Israeli oppression.

              The leaking of the investigation of AIPAC to the media on August 28th, 2004 gave advance warning to other spies working with Franklin. The damage to the FBI’s investigation was completed when United States Attorney General John Ashcroft ordered the FBI to stop all arrests in the case.

              Like the Stephen Bryen case and the hunt for, “Mega,” this latest spy scandal seems destined by officials who have their own secret allegiances to protect, barring a massive public outcry.

              Police near the Nuclear Fuel Services plant in Tennessee stop a truck after a three mile chase, during which the driver throws a bottle containing a strange liquid from the cab. The drivers turn out to be Israelis using fake identifications. The FBI refuses to investigate and the Israelis are released.

              Two Israelis try to enter Kings Bay Naval Submarine Base, home to eight Trident submarines. The truck tests positive for explosives.

              2004-Jewish Timeline Ends with ADL’s Abe Foxman demanding the BIBLE be Banned as Hate Speech!

              The National Director of the ADL, Abraham H. Foxman, publishes a book entitled, “Never Again? The Threat Of The New Anti-Semitism,” in which he states that the New Testament’s “lie,” that the ancient Pharisees were responsible for the death of Christ, has been responsible for anti-semitism throughout the millennia and thus the New Testament of the bible is, “hate speech,” and should be censored or banned. (let’s Take a Vote! Ban bibles? Or, Ban Jews like Foxman?!!)

              1988-ADL Invents “Hate Crimes”(Thought Crimes)….

              1988: The ADL initiate a nationwide competition for law students to draft anti-hate legislation for minority groups. That competition is won by a man named, Joseph Ribakoff, whose thesis proposes that not only must hate motivated violence be banned, but also any words which stimulate: supiscion; friction; hate; and possible violence, these must also be criminalised.

              This ADL prize-winning paper suggests that not only should state-agencies monitor and restrict free speech in general, but they should also censor all films that criticize identifiable groups. Furthermore, even if the person making the statement can justify it, for example Christians criticizing homosexuality because the bible expressly forbids it, Ribakoff asserts that the truth is to be no defence in court.

              The only proof a court will need in order to secure a conviction of hate speech is that something has been said, and a minority group or member of such group has felt emotionally damaged as a result of such criticism. Therefore, under these proposals which the ADL will have forced into law all over the world less than 15 years later, Jesus Christ would have been arrested as a hate criminal.

              This law is designed to protect the Rothschild conspiracy from being revealed in that if you criticize the Rothschilds criminal cabal, you will be targeted as anti-semitic, and thus risk imprisonment.

              • Them Guys – Each and every one of your posts is fact based and 100% the truth. Thank you for taking time to educate the uneducated or at least try to. BRAVO.


                • Ditto, plus, you actually make sense…most of the time. LOL

        • one way or another this earth is going to end some day
          either by GOD in heaven or a DICKHEAD on earth it will

          • Or both.

          • Mother earth just might decide to start handing out eviction notices, in the form of earthquakes, floods, drought, etc…so it might be in our future best interests to pay the rent on time and diligently maintain the grounds. Just saying, that decision can’t be over-turned in any court.

          • NAH; the Earth will be fine, people are about as significant to the Earth as a case of Jock itch. Little dry weather and some sun and we will be gone.

        • *piffle!

          Scout out the area and find some livestock like chickens near by. Just prepare, because the hurt is coming!

          • come on by any of our livestock and or chickens and find yourself in a whole nother world of hurt. so keep on movin and prepare your own not mine.

      2. Well, you’re either prepared for it the best you can or you’re not. Don’t take these folks word above, just read the book “One Second After” and that should give you some insight on what it could be like.

        • 4 year prepper says:
          I read that book. It is enough to kick you into high gear or even a higher gear.

          I have done all I can but my husband is not on board so there are lots of things I cannot do. He is talented in many areas: electrical olumbing, welding, wood work of all kinds, roofing housing, pouring cement, and the list goes on but for the life of me I cannot get him to understand the importance of prepping.
          I have done all that on my own and is has been a task.
          Water supply is my main concern at the moment.
          I pray it does not come to that. I only have 60 + gallons and have a water filter.

          4 year prepper.

          • Maybe he’ll come around. Water filtration system is on my list this month. Not sure what I’m going to get. Saw a lot of complaints on the recent Berky filters, but you know how online reviews can be. Saw a good video on a sawyer filtration system. Any suggestions anyone?

            • Btw, on Craigslist you can find food grade barrels for $10, and 275 gallon food grade tanks for about $150. The tank comes on a pallet with a supporting large gauge wire basket. It has a top fill and spigot at the bottom.

              • @ tactical outlaw and satori, thanks for the info.

              • sunlight will make those brittle and split over time. Buy a black poly tank (uv resis) from a farmer supply store.

              • We’re getting the food grade 250 gal poly tanks in Delaware for 50 bucks. I just saw an ad in a local penny saver guide that he just got in 30 gal food grade barrels with spin tops along with “0” ring and they’re going for 8 bucks each. They had pickles in them. I’m gonna clean them out and put my salt and sugar in them. Will probably get the barrel liners still.

            • Katadyne. Expensive but well made and will last long.

              • Tactical, I also have a Katadyn with extra filters. It’s made in Switzerland and somewhat expensive but worth every penny. I’ve tested creek water in it and it worked like a charm for me. I just recently purchased a Sawyer. I’m planning a camping trip soon, so i’ll take it with me and test it. braveheart

                • BH…100% agreed. Excellent filter. Enjoy your camping trip. btw, if the water is very dirty, use a coffee filter first then use your Katadyn…it does increase the ceramic’d life.


            • The reviews on the Berkey are true. We purchased one, trustingly we used it for a year w/o testing. Ran a red dye test before changing the filters and it failed miserably. Needless to say that was disappointing, Thank God our life was not dependent on it. So we installed the new filters and again ran the red dye test, failed miserably again with brand new filters in it. Major bummer, especially considering the price of the filters. There are vids on youtube showing you how to repair the filters, but I think its pretty shitty that I would need to “complete” the manufacture of such a high-dollar brand new filter. So we purchased the Pro Pur, Pro One filter. Mainly because it worked in our Berkey housing. I could not be more pleased! It is an exceptional filter system. It has built in fluoride filtration, which we had to have a separate filter for that with the Berkey. Fluoride filtration is a requirement for us. It is also impregnated with silver. I have no affiliation with Pro Pur, but if I could do it all over again we would of purchased it from the beginning, and we will be sticking with it. We looked at it before purchasing the Berkey, but passed over it, due to Berkey’s reputation. Just my two cents, hope it helps.

              • I really like this idea. Thanks for this link.

            • The Katadyne Pocket Filter is nice. It will filter 13,000 gallons. This is one of my systems I have. You can find them on eBay. Think in threes for all things. Three ways to filter water, Three ways to start a fire etc.

            • Cheaper than dirt sells replacement berkey ceramic filters at something like $21.95 each. They’re white and not black like the Berks, but work just as well. Berkey sells replacement filters for $100 for two. Or save charcoal from fireplace and learn how to build a sand/ charcoal h2o filter using two buckets. Make your own steam distiller with a couple of pressure cookers and some pex tubing. Did he say pressure cookers? Strain with dense fabric like denim, then boil. Or stand in the rain and open your mouth.

            • PenCRNA
              On the water filtration system, check out the video on you tube (Emergency Water Filter System SHTF) Candle Filters can be had at Cheaper than dirt for about $22.00. This is about the cheapest way. Buy a few filters. These filters will leach about 2700 gals. per filter and can be cleaned with scotch brite pad if they get dirty. They leach about 1 liter of water per hour. Add a couple drops of unscented bleach per 5 gallons of water. Good luck, God Bless, and keep prepping.

            • Whatever you get DO NOT get a berkey! I personally have had 3 out of 4 filters fail. If you already have one make sure to put some aquarium grade silicone around the base and about 3/4 inch up the filter material. You can’t tell when it starts to fail so cover your arse. I too have read many complaints about other peoples filters failing. I use an aquarain, it’s slower but IT WORKS..

          • I also have done 95% on my own.
            Oh, he supports every effort since the beginning.
            It’s just I who does all the prepping.

            Yes, it has been a task; but, thank the Lord I could and had the resources to do it.

              @Jay Jay.
              Thanks for that advice. We do have a water “hand crank” pump in our yard that has been there many years ago. We think it was installed when some workers were putting up electrical lines, paving roads, etc when this area was not built up in the country.
              However he has never touched it even with all the constant trying to get him to prime the john brown thing.
              He knows the retired water department man very well and I have tried to get him to ask questions, but his head is still in the sand.
              I have started buying cases of bottled water, much to his displeasure.
              I told him you can’t have it both ways. If you don’t like it do something else for water supply.
              Thanks Jay Jay

          • 4 year, try relating to him on his terms—ask him to imagine that he needed his cordless screw gun to finish a job and his only battery ran dead. If he’d had a SPARE battery or two, he would’ve made that deadline.

            Or imagine he lost his only hammer in the middle of a job. Sure would be nice to have another one handy.

            Or he ran out of gas in the middle of nowhere and didn’t bother to fill the gas can. Hope he wore comfortable shoes.

              That will work for a while. However we own a generator and until we run out of gas for it, he will keep on with his work.
              I do stay on his case to KEEP those gas cans full at all times for other uses rather than cutting grass every 4 days.
              He has replied to me, “I know more about surviving than you think I do. I just might surprise you”
              Well, that is fine too. I like surprises. It might backfire though.
              I hide cigarette lighters, matches water filters, medicines, personal hygiene items and other small items because he thinks it is foolish to stockpile them.
              Many times he is up here at the house, wanting my wood glue, masking tape, electrical tape, lighter to burn trash from the cabinet shop, paper towels for clean ups,
              windex, wasp spray because he just got stung (which I have items for that too.) If I did not stock all these things he would be up the creek in one of his two boats (which incidentally needs gas) without a paddle.
              He is a jack of all trades and I will keep him because I
              “just might find a use for him someday”

              • “I know more about surviving than you think I do. I just might surprise you” –I don’t care for those kind of surprises.

          • Welcome to my world!

            • My husband tells me, “you can’t believe everything you read on the internet”. I was a long-time hider too. Finally he starter to get somewhat of a clue and doesn’t bother me so much about all the hoarding. We have just found out that one of our neighbors also sees the light. Had a most enjoyable visit with them. Wow, its a beautiful thing to be able to talk openly without being shut down.

        • There is no doubt that such an event COULD occur. Hell, people win the lottery every day.

          What bothers me is the idea that these politicians are trying to blame nature for what the elites have ALREADY planned. Why else would it be referred to as a 100% certainty?

          Nothing in nature comes with those odds, but for the criminals psychopaths who print money it could easily be done on purpose to further their depopulation agenda.

          And conveniently, mother nature would be blamed instead of the real culprits, and you can bet THEIR history will read that way and tell the story about how they saved humanity.

          All I know for sure is when my number comes up I will be going home. Until then, I will stand up for God and His Law against all challengers.

        • “one second after”. awesome book that is a real life senerio. i was talking with an airwing commander and a navy commander in Feb. They both , separately, made reference to this book as a when not an if. Be it solar flare, EMP or grid shut down

        • Great book…. it is on my shelf……

        • PO’d
          I resemble that remark 🙂
          One second after is a very scary book considering it was written by one of the top Goverment EMP researchers!

          cheap insurance , metal trash cans with cardboard lining put sensitive items into EMP bags and then place into cans . The cans do not have to be grounded. I Use folding solar panel systems , Miltary folding panel , goal zero panels and ene loop batteries to power all my small devices.

          Get a solar cooker, the one I have is called a Solar Flare its a real simple design $60.00 on amazon I cooked bratwurst in mine in 90 min. In full sun they can heat up to 300 degrees use an oven thermometer to monitor heating. Also another neat item is the sun rocket solar kettle they are fantastic for heating water for those dehydrated meals. Both of these are highly recommened for grid down use . As a tactical benefit they do not produce smoke.

          After surviving super storm sandy I learned a lot more than I wanted to about living in a grid down situation for 3-1/2 weeks. Recently at the Gov’t agency where I work they have been implementing a program called Goverment ready for employees to be prepared for emergencies .
          I find this pretty ironic considering how the regime feels about preppers.

          We live in a dangerous time but we are blessed with many new and unique items for preparedness that can be easily obtained now before an event occurs.

              • 1991 “Day of Purim,”

                1991: Following the Iraqi invasion of Kuwait on August 2, 1990, on January 16 of this year the United States and Britain began an aerial bombing campaign of targets within Iraq. On 24 February the ground campaign commenced which was to last 100 hours until on February 28 when a horrendous war crime occurred.

                This crime was the slaughter of 150,000 Iraqi troops with fuel air bombs. These Iraqis were fleeing on a crowded highway from Kuwait to Basra. President George Herbert Walker Bush ordered United States military aircraft and ground units to kill these surrendering troops, they were then bulldozed into mass unmarked graves in the desert, some still alive.

                President Bush then ordered a cessation of hostilities. What was the significance of this slaughter and President Bush declaring the war over on this day? Well it was the day the, “Day of Purim,” fell on this year. This the day the Jews celebrate their victory over Ancient Babylon, now based within the borders of Iraq and a day when the Jews are encouraged to get bloody revenge against their perceived enemies.

                At the Bilderberg Conference on June 6 to 9 of this year, in Baden-Baden, Germany, David Rockefeller (a Rothschild) made the following statement,

                “We are grateful to the Washington Post, the New York Times, Time Magazine, and other great publications whose directors have attended our meetings and respected their promises of discretion for almost 40 years. It would have been impossible for us to develop our plan for the world,(the NWO) if we had been subjected to the lights of publicity during those years.
                But the world is now more sophisticated and prepared to march towards a world government. The super-national sovereignty of an intellectual elite and world bankers is surely preferable to the national auto-determination practised in past centuries.”

                • Them Guys,
                  There was no one left to surrender or kill, I was there after the A10’s did their work , believe me there was NO ONE left to capture or kill . The BLU bomb units ( fuel air) were only used out in the desert I do not know if Iraqi units were hit but the main use of these bombs was to clear paths through minefields with the pressure blast waves . These and the daisy cutters were very impressive , the ground litterly shook miles away from the phase line areas where they we being utilized .

                  At night you would swear a tactical nuke was set off .

                  I remember Kuwait’s highway of death very clearly both sides of the road were mined the retreating Hammurabi Republican Guard division fleeing back to Basra had no where to go, the Air Force Warthog jockeys really had a field day with those Vulcan cannons.

              • Ted Kennedy: Found Info on your brother JFK!

                Another, and probably the primary, reason for Kennedy’s assassination is however, the fact that he made it quite clear to Israeli Prime Minister, David Ben-Gurion, that under no circumstances would he agree to Israel becoming a nuclear state. The Israeli newspaper Ha’aretz on February 5, 1999, in a review of, Avner Cohen’s book, “Israel and the Bomb,” states the following,

                “The murder of American President John F. Kennedy brought to an abrupt end the massive pressure being applied by the U.S. administration on the government of Israel to discontinue the nuclear program…The book implied that, had Kennedy remained alive, it is doubtful whether Israel would today have a nuclear option.”

                1963: On June 4th President John F. Kennedy (the 35th President of the United States 1961 – 1963) signs Executive Order 11110 which returned to the U.S. government the power to issue currency, without going through the Rosthchilds owned Federal Reserve.

                Less than 6 months later on November 22nd , president Kennedy is assassinated by the Rothschilds for the same reason as they assassinated President Abraham Lincoln in 1865, he wanted to print American money for the American people, as oppose to for the benefit of a money grabbing war mongering foreign elite.

                This Executive Order 11110, is rescinded by President Lyndon Baines Johnson (the 36th President of the United States 1963 to 1969) on Air Force One from Dallas to Washington, the same day as President Kennedy was assassinated.

                FYI: Prez LBJ & his Wife were Texas’s Biggest,pro- Zionists!

              • None Dare Call It Conspiracy, Gary Allen

                Israeli General Matityahu Peled, is quoted in Ha’aretz (19 March 1972) with the following statement,

                “The thesis that the danger of genocide was hanging over us in June 1967 and that Israel was fighting for its physical existence is only bluff, which was born and developed after the war.” Another sickening and deceptive statement but again at least he’s consistent with the Mossad motto, “By Way Of Deception, Thou Shalt Do War.”

                1973: In his book, None Dare Call It Conspiracy, Gary Allen states,(Gary Allen, FBI man Inside whitehouse etc)

                “One major reason for the historical blackout on the role of the international bankers in political history is the Rothschilds were Jewish…
                ….The Jewish members of the conspiracy have used an organisation called The Anti-Defamation League (ADL) as an instrument to try and convince everyone that any mention of the Rothschilds and their allies is an attack on all Jews.

                In this way they have stifled almost all honest scholarship on international bankers and made the subject taboo within universities.

                Any individual or book exploring this subject is immediately attacked by hundreds of ADL communities all over the country. The ADL has never let the truth or logic interfere with its highly professional smear jobs…

                ….Actually, nobody has a right to be more angry at the Rothschild clique than their fellow Jews…

                ….The Rothschild empire helped finance Adolf Hitler.””

                ALSO In 1973:

                George J. Laurer an employee of the Rothschilds controlled IBM, invents the UPC (Universal Product Code) barcode which will eventually be placed upon every item traded worldwide and bear the number, 666. The Book of Revelation, Chapter 13, Verse 17 through 18, states the following in relation to this number,
                “And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.
                Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six.”

                The whole Satanic aims of the Rothschilds are now in full view of the world, everything bought or sold carries the mark of the beast, 666. (the first-middle-last-Long Black Line in Every bar code label is the number-6) or, 3-6’s)

He is funded by Rothschild created Communism in Russia and also the following Rothschild agents: Solomon Adler, a former United States Treasury official who was a Soviet Spy; Israel Epstein, the son of a Jewish Bolshevik imprisoned by the Tsar in Russia for trying to forment a revolution there; and Frank Coe, a leading official of the Rothschild owned IMF.

              What is the MOTTO for Zionists Jews? Ask Mossad!

              1951: On 1 April the Israeli Secret Intelligence Agency the Mossad, which will go on to terrorize the world, is formed. The motto of the Mossad is probably the most disgusting secret service motto in the world, it is,

              “By Way Of Deception,
              Thou Shalt Do War.”

Israeli defense minister, Ashkenazi Jew, Pinhas Lavon is eventually removed from office, though many think real responsibility lay with David Ben-Gurion.

            A hidden microphone planted by the Israelis is discovered in the Office of the US Ambassador in Tel Aviv.

            1956: Telephone taps are found connected to two telephones in the residence of the US military attaché in Tel Aviv.

            On page 219 of his book, “Tales of the British Aristocracy,” L.G. Pine, the Editor of Burke’s Peerage, states that the Jews,
            “have made themselves so closely connected with the British peerage that the two classes are unlikely to suffer loss which is not mutual. So closely linked are the Jews and the lords that a blow against the Jews in this country would not be possible without injuring the aristocracy also.”

          • Here’s The Original “TERRORISTS” in Mid East region!

            1944: On 6 November Lord Moyne, British Minister Resident in the Middle East was assassinated in Cairo by two members of the Jewish terrorist group, the Stern Gang, led by future Prime Minister of Israel, Yitzhak Shamir. He is also responsible for an assassination attempt against Harold MacMichael, the High Commissioner of the British Mandate of Palestine, this same year.

            Interestingly he also masterminds another successful assassination this year against the United Nations representative in the Middle East, Count Folke Bernadotte who, although he had secured the release of 21,000 prisoners from German camps during World War II, was seen by Yitzak Shamir and his terrorist collaborators as an anti-Zionist.

            In Bretton Woods, New Hampshire, two further Rothschild world banks are created. The International Monetary Fund (IMF), and the World Bank.

            1946: On July 22 the future Prime Minister of Israel, Ashkenazi Jew, David Ben-Gurion, orders another future Prime Minister of Israel, Ashkenazi Jew, Menachem Begin, to carry out a terrorist attack on the King David Hotel in Palestine, to try and drive out the British. As a result of this 91 people were killed, most of them civilians: 28 British, 41 Arabs, 17 Jews, and 5 others. Around 45 people are injured.

            Menachem Begin went on to proudly proclaimed himself as, “the father of modern terrorism.” Just to put the gravity of the attack on the King David Hotel into perspective, it was at the time the biggest death toll as a result of single terrorist action ever and was only surpassed over forty years later by the Bombing of Pan Am flight 103 over Lockerbie.

            1947: The British who prior to World War 2 declared that there would be no more immigration of Jews to Palestine in order to protect the Palestinians from their acts of terror against both them and British soldiers, transfer control of Palestine to the United Nations. The United Nations resolve to have Palestine partitioned into two states, one zionist and one arab, with Jerusalem to remain as an international zone to be enjoyed by all religious faiths.

            This transfer was scheduled to take place on May 15, 1948. The United Nations had no right to give Arab property to anyone, as indeed even thought the Jews owned 6% of Palestine at that time, resolution 181 granted the Jews 57% of the land leaving the Arabs who at that time had 94% with only 43%.

            Information collected by the ADL in its spy operations on US citizens is used by the House Select Committee on Unamerican Activities. Subcommittee Chair Clare Hoffman dismisses the ADL’s reports on suspected communists as “hearsay.”

            1948: In the Spring of this year, the Rothschilds bribe President Harry S. Truman (33rd President of the United States 1945 – 1953) to recognise Israel (Rothschild owned Zionist not Jewish territory) as a sovereign state with $2,000,000 which they give to him on his campaign train.

            What the ISRAEL FLAG REALLY MEANS!!!!!

            They then declare Israel to be a sovereign Jewish state in Palestine and within half an hour President Truman declared the United States to be the first foreign nation to recognise it.

            The Flag of Israel is unveiled. Despite tremendous opposition the emblem on the flag is a blue coloured version of the Rothschild, “Red Hexagram or Sign.”

            This angers many Jews who realise this Hexagram was used in the ancient mystery religions as the symbol of, “Moloch,” (described as a demon of unwilling sacrifice and is also interestingly the name of the stone owl the elite worship at Bohemian Grove), and, “Astaroth,” (described as the Lord Treasurer of Hell).

            (Moloch=Statue jews in old testement threw jews kids into and Burned their kids alive to Sacrafice to Moloch false god, read Your bible its in there).

            The Hexagram was also used to represent Saturn, which has been identified as the esoteric name for, “Satan.” This indicates that anyone killed in the name of Israel is actually a sacrifice to Satan. These dissenting Jews believe the, “Menorah,” the oldest Jewish symbol should be used and pointed out that the Hexagram is not even a Jewish symbol, but of course as the Rothschild Zionists use it that is what ends up on the Rothschild, I mean Zionist, I mean Israeli flag.

            In the early hours of April 19, 132 Jewish terrorists from the Irgun gang, led by future Israeli Prime Minister Menachem Begin, and the Stern gang, led by future Israeli Prime Minister Yitzhak Shamir, brutally massacre 200 men, women and children as they are sleeping peacefully in the Arab village of Deir Yassin.

            Does Your Pro jew israel Pastor Tell You This?

            Following the United Nations transfer of Palestine to an independent Jewish state and an independent Arab state on May 15, the Israelis launched a military assault on the Arabs with blaring loudspeakers on their trucks informing the Arabs that if they did not flee immediately, they would be slaughtered.

            800,000 Arabs with the recent memory of the Deir Yassin massacre at the forefront of their minds, fled in panic. They asked for help from nighbouring Arab states, but those states did not get involved as they were no match for the Israelis whose up to date military hardware had been supplied by the Jewish Stalinist regime in Russia. Following this assault, the Jews now controlled 78% of the former Palestine as oppose to the 57% that had been given to them illegally by the United Nations.

            The Palestinians, many of them Christians, were never paid compensation for their homes, property and businesses stolen from them during this illegal Jewish assault, and these people ended up in slum refugee cities of tents. Futhermore at least half of the Palestinians in their hurry to flee, left their birth certificates behind. The State of Israel then passed a law that only those who could prove citizenship were allowed to return to Israel, thus meaning these 400,000 Palestinians could not return and lost all their property they had left there.

      6. Part of me is dreading the devastating loss of so many, and part of me is welcoming what is coming.

        • Go with the dread part, be careful what you welcome. We do what we can afford to prepare, but solar panels are not in the budget, nor is a stocked retreat. We live in a rural area, and expect the hordes from the city will make it out and kill our cattle and chickens, neither we nor the dogs will stop everyone.
          Not bugging out! We have too many critters, besides everything we need is here, good land, well, septic, tools, etc. I know the mountains good enough to know I cannot survive in them, if we even made it there.
          I do not look forward to no electricity, air conditioning, freezers, internet, pumping water by hand etc., and hordes of starving people, and gangs of vicious thugs. We will do our best to make a stand here, but I fear I may never be prepared for what may happen.

          • Typical city folks won’t make it out of the city, too used to soft living and won’t be able to adapt to crisis events. They will stay put in the city and expect the government to come to their rescue. Looting will be easy pickings for the bottom feeders, why would they leave the cities? Martial law would follow, refugees from the city will more than likely be sent to your FEMA camps. You know the type of folks that would rather be handfeed than get off their arse and grow, or hunt for their own food. Just need to keep your head down for 12 months, – until mother nature culls the herd.

            • Joyzy… right on target. agree 100%

            • Joyzy girl, it won’t take 12 months. just give it 6 months maximum and 90% of the population will be gone.

              • And the rest will be so weak they can’t pose much of a threat.

                • Urban Ghetto Dwellers had good Training!

                  1909: Jacob Schiff founds the National Advancement for the Association of the Coloured People (NAACP). This was done to incite black people into roiting, looting and other forms of disorder, in order to cause a rift between the black and white communities. Jewish historian, Howard Sachar, states the following in his book, “A History of the Jews in America,”

                  “In 1914, Professor Emeritus Joel Spingarn of Columbia University became chairman of the NAACP and recruited for its board such Jewish leaders as Jacob Schiff, Jacob Billikopf, and Rabbi Stephen Wise.”
                  Other Ashkenazi Jew co-founders included Julius Rosenthal, Lillian Wald and Rabbi Emil G. Hirsch. It was not until 1920 that the NAACP appointed its first black president, James Weldon Johnson.

                  • I had always thought that stood for the “National Association for the Advancement of the Crazy People”

          • pick out the one or two that seem to be in charge and shoot them in the head, the others will get a clue!

            • 1913: On March 4, Woodrow Wilson is elected the 28th President of the United States. Shortly after he is inaugurated, he is visited in the White House by Ashkenazi Jew, Samuel Untermyer, of law firm, Guggenheim, Untermyer, and Marshall, who tries to blackmail him for the sum of $40,000 in relation to an affair Wilson had whilst he was a professor at Princeton University, with a fellow professor’s wife.
              President Wilson does not have the money, so Untermyer volunteers to pay the $40,000 out of his own pocket to the woman Wilson had had the affair with, on the condition that Wilson promise to appoint to the first vacancy on the United States Supreme Court a nominee to be recommended to President Wilson by Untermyer. Wilson agrees to this.

              The Word “ANTISEMITE” Get’s Invented By:

              Jacob Schiff sets up the Anti Defamation League (ADL) in the United States. This organisation is formed to slander anyone who questions or challenges the Rothschild global conspiracy as, “anti-semitic.”

              Strangely enough, the same year that they do this they also set up their last and current central bank in America, the Federal Reserve. Congressman Charles Lindbergh stated following the passing of the Federal Reserve Act on December 23,

              “The Act establishes the most gigantic trust on earth. When the President signs this Bill, the invisible government of the monetary power will be legalized…….The greatest crime of the ages is perpetrated by this banking and currency bill.”
              It is important to note that the Federal Reserve is a private company, it is neither Federal nor does it have any Reserve. It is conservatively estimated that profits exceed $150 billion per year and the Federal Reserve has never once in its history published accounts.

              • I would like to see the FED’s tax returns.

        • Spoken like a true moron. In your ignorant smugness you assume you and yours will be among the survivors. You cannot be sure of that. You and yours are just as likely to not survive as anyone.

          • NC Joe.
            How long do you think you will be around? I mean with all your smugness.

            • NC Joe

              The reality is everyone that survives “an event” of this size will not survive its aftermath if they’re unprepared.

              Personally I’ll prepare for some economic problems and its likely effects but this is beyond my capabilities. I’m too old, too unhealthy and refuse to and realistically can’t live in no mans land awaiting “the end”. If the supply chain is disrupted more than a few months I’m history.

          • Joe,non of us are sure we will survive immediately after a “event”.We just try and be ready as possible within our means to be ready,and some including me am ready to try and help others if I can.Sure,event could be a planet killing asteroid or total nuke war,then the prepping was for naught.That said,doesn’t mean one needs to be a smug prick because others are hopeful!

            • The prepping wasn’t for naught—you must have had some memorable times with family and/or close friends while you were building your preps. I’ve had some fun even all by myself while stacking and planning. You must have had some good discussions or even better debates along the way.

              If nothing else, there should’ve been some time where you just needed to step back for a few. Sitting there, staring at the stars or clouds while you think…I like to forage and animal tracking is a favorite for me, even if I don’t go out intending to bag anything.

              Candle making, canning, dehydrating, quilt making, there are all sorts of things that are more than useful, they are FUN.

              You find your “fun” wherever it may be and relish the fact that you didn’t have to look very far.

          • Well, we can’t all count on “The Peter Principle” like you can, Joey.

            • Yeah. My name never seems to be Paul…

          • ncjoe, for once you said something I can agree with, your point about being among the survivors all the way to the end. You’re right about that. i’m not even sure myself that I’ll make it all the way through but I’ll make every effort to do so. it’s true that nobody is guaranteed tomorrow. something could happen to me just like it could to any other prepper, but I’m sure that everyone here will give it their all to make it through. IF I don’t make it all the way, IT WON’T BE BECAUSE I DIDN’T PREP.

            • …but if you DO make it through, you’ll be better off because you DID prep.

              Maybe you “can’t take it with you”, but you can sure enough use it before you go…

              • Sixpack, I will definitely use it plus anything else I can get my hands on before my time comes. braveheart

            • My thoughts exactly BH. By prepping I have a better chance than 90 plus %. And if I should go down so be it, but I will go down trying to provide for and protect my 2 kids and 1 grandkid not unarmed and begging for mercy from some dirtbag. We all gotta go sometime.


              • ready down under, my time will also come eventually, but at leqast I will go out of this world on my terms, not someone else’s. braveheart

                • Brave. If your terms are typing endlessly on a computer the better part of you let life about things that will never happen. I think you achieved your goal.

      7. It’s the same with EMPs as with asteroids, mega-volcanoes, comets, etc., sooner or later bad things happen to our planet. It’s inevitable. Period.

        NOTHING lasts forever, including our planet. The only prudent thing to do is to prepare as much as is possible for these eventualities!

        It may be tomorrow or it may be in 100 years, but an EMP that’s strong enough to take our grid down IS going to occur! This is just a nature-caused EMP.
        With the planet in chaos and possibly war in our future, this can very possibly hasten the EMP scenario and make it happen.
        You can bet there’s countries out there plotting to do this to us. It’s just a matter of when a country finally puts it all together in a viable, usable way.

        Plan and continue to prepare!

        • good comment rick E
          I could not agree more.
          pray for the best and prepare for the worst , words to live by as always .

          • Thanks for your kind words Hammerhead!

      8. Geeez….and the good news just keeps coming in. I have been ramping up my preps as much as money will allow. This week I am a Buyer for the company I work for. Next week, maybe a farmer? lol!..

        Keep on prepping, folks..

      9. Too many possible catastrophes to choose from. Pick your favorite and try to be prepared for any.

        • Agreed. I think if you prepare for grid-down you will have most bases covered… except maybe an NBC attack…

          • Mac, NBC has been attacking the people for a long time now, along with Fox, CNN, and MSNBC and the others 🙂

            • GC, I believe Mac was referring to nuclear, biological, and chemical weapons.

              • Yeah, but it was a fun comment anyway.

        • check it daily, confusing at first. but read often and you will catch on. That is IF you want to know what is coming our way. May give you enough time to put the laptop in the microwave!

          • Salvador,laptop in microwave,kinda defeats the prepping doesn’t it!?

            • Well not sure what ya mean but, my laptop has a lot of vital resources stored on it. Lots of books (digital, to many to print) on everything for self sustainability. It is backed up on disc, but without a way to read them this becomes a problem. The microwave acts as a Feraday cage. The laptop is useless without power. Which is why I have AGM batteries, a converter, and solar panels (all protected as well) to give me juice for such a tragic time.

              • Microwaves are designed to keep microwaves IN it, and by design, OUT of it as well. If yours is stainless steel inside, remember to put your stuff on a rubber mat to keep it from grounding to the chassis from the inside.

      10. Syriagate is commencing full speed ahead as a quid pro quo to Hillary. She has her finger prints all over guns in Syria as they passed from Libya to Syria thru Benghazi. Whatevery “smoking gun” is in Syria will never see the light of day. Obama is paving the way for Hillary because the Clintons stood up for Obama in the last re-election. Possibly some AlQuiada got smart and have blackmailed Obama by threat of releasing knowledge of Clintons/CIA involvement unless we bomb Assad. Either way, this shit is dirty we are about to do something that could mean very bad things for us over here. This is my latest thought as I cannot even begin to wrap my head around these eventsactions by our liberal/progressive (now war mongering) govt. heads.

        • Al-qaeda is nothing more than an expendable bunch of pawns. They aren’t blackmailing anybody, they are following orders…now whomever is pulling THEIR strings…

          • Look how they Use Their Own kind!

            1943: February 18th, Zionist, Izaak Greenbaum, head of the Jewish Agency Rescue Committee, in a speech to the Zionist Executive Council states,

            “If I am asked, could you give from the UJA (United Jewish Appeal) monies to rescue Jews, I say, no and I say again no!”
            He would go onto state,
            “One cow in Palestine is worth more than all the Jews in Poland!”
            This is not a surprise, the whole idea of Zionist support for the slaughter of innocent Jews was to scare the survivors into believing that their only place of safety was Israel. How else do you think the Zionists could ensure Jews leave the beautiful European cities in which they live, in order to settle in a desert!

            • Anny relation to Norman Greenbaum, you know, that song “Spirit in the sky”

              … When I die and they lay me to rest, gonna go to the place that’s the best, when I die and they lay me to rest goin’ up to the spirit in the sky…

      11. I agree with tactical. However I believe they with cause several disasters at the same time. War, the economy, social division, and probably some disease thrown in for good measure. The believe in overwhelming the system to cause collapse. If you are not saved, it might be a good time to pry about asking Jesus to come into your heart and guide your life.

      12. remember these scenes and worse from Massachusetts just a few years ago ??

        extrapolate that to a grid down situation

        • My people. 🙂 Aren’t we just the brightest bunch? (NOT.)

        • Wow…too freaking lazy to boil water? OMG we are screwed in the northeast! I’ll just play dumb with the sheeple, and keep my stash quiet.

          • Not if they didn’t fill those bathtubs!!!
            And cooking pans, and buckets, and tea pitchers, and trahs cans…oh, never mind.

        • satori, I’ve been thru hurricanes; the stores are stripped out in a short time when people see the storm is headed their way and it will take two weeks to restock some items when things get back to normal. Before people start to panic I load up early in the day.

          • Laura M., My wife and I stocked up early even before we received hurricane warnings. I’ve seen people get into serious fights in Miami’s supermarkets over even stupid things and this was way back in the 70s and 80s.

        • Satori, when the grid gets fried, the immediate aftermath will make that video look like a walk in the park.

      13. This could be to a degree dealt with,prep the power supply station ect.,have old school backup that would not be emp affected.Sure folks may not get cable/net ect. but still have some basic power.Decentralize the grid with potential for hooking up to other parts to help in storms ect.With all that can go wrong you just do/prep what you can and live for today.On a side note,with the puppets gearing up for another war,well,keep prepping and enjoy the day!

      14. Dear fellow humans, it is our choice. The leaders are on one side and we on the other. That leaves us in the largest of the two categories. Write your Senator’s and let them know how you feel while there is still time. Think about it, when have both sides of the government worked together on something 92% of the American population was against? We are on to them now and they do not have a chance this time to go to war. Last time we were all behind them but not this time.

        • @Ancient Echoes…well said but did you see Nancy Pelosi’s reason as why we should go to war? Seriously she said her 5 year old grand child told her to bomb Syria. This is just criminal to the core that these folks treat the Americans as total morons. Shame on them to make us to suffer in order to protect the interest of a few criminal bankers and defense contractors.

          • Write to Congress?! Look How these evil bastards do it!

            1929: The Rothschilds crash the United States economy by contracting the money supply.

            1930: The first Rothschild world bank, the, “Bank for International Settlements (BIS),” is established in Basle, Switzerland. The same place as where 33 years earlier the first ever World Zionist Congress was held.

            1933: On January 30, Adolf Hitler becomes Chancellor of Germany. He drives Jews, many of which were Communist out of Governmental positions within Germany. As a result of this, in July, the Jews hold a World Conference in Amsterdam during which they demand that Hitler re-instate every Jew back to his former position.

            Hitler refuses and as a result of this, Samuel Untermyer, the Ashkenazi Jew who blackmailed President Wilson,and is now the head of the American delegation and the president of the whole conference, returns to the United States, and makes a speech on radio which was transcribed in the From the New York Times, Monday, August 7, 1933. In the speech he made the following statements,

            “…the Jews are the aristocrats of the world…Our campaign is…the economic boycott against all German goods, shipping and services…What we are proposing…is to prosecute a purely defensive economic boycott that will undermine the Hitler regime and bring the German people to their senses by destroying their export trade on which their very existence depends…
            …Each of you, Jew and Gentile alike…must refuse to deal with any merchant or shopkeeper who sells any German-made goods or who patronizes German ships or shipping.”

            As two thirds of Germany’s food supply had to be imported, and could only be imported with the proceeds of what they exported, if Germany could not export, two thirds of Germany’s population would starve, as there would be not enough food for more than one third of the population.
            As a result of this boycott, Jews throughout America, would protest outside and damage any stores in which they found any products with, “Made in Germany,” printed on them, causing stores to have to dump these products or risk bankruptcy.

            Once the effects of this boycott began to be felt in Germany, the Germans, who had demonstrated no violence towards the Jews up to this point, simply began boycotting Jewish stores in the same way the Jews had done to stores selling German products in America.

            Rothschild financed IBM, supply machines to the Nazis which produce punch cards to help organize and manage the initial identification and social expulsion of Jews, the confiscation of their property and their extermination.

            On November 16, President Roosevelt recognizes the Zionist regime of Stalin in Russia without consultation with Congress even as 8,000 Ukrainians march in protest in New York.

            Also this year, President Roosevelt, born of a Jewish mother, therefore satisfying Ashkenazi rules of being Jewish, orders the all-seeing eye to be placed upon all new dollar bills along with the motto, “Novus Ordo Seclorum.” This is latin for, “A New Order of the Ages.”

            1934: Swiss banking secrecy laws are reformed and it becomes an offence resulting in imprisonment for any bank employee to violate bank secrecy. This is all in preparation for the Rothschild engineered Second World War in which as usual they will fund both sides.

            1936: With regard to the increase in anti-semitism in Germany, Samuel Landman (at the time, secretary to the World Zionist Organisation), in his 1936 book, Great Britain, The Jews, and Palestine states the following of the United States entry into World War 1,

            “The fact that it was Jewish help that brought USA into the War on the side of the Allies has rankled ever since in German – especially Nazi – minds, and has contributed in no small measure to the prominence which anti-Semitism occupies in the Nazi programme.”

            Proof That Jews Cause antisemitizem to occure! Then Cry and Whine Oy Veh! Why Us?! Gee I wonder….So when Jews themselves write and Admit these issues as read above, will the Naysayers and “Anti-Gentiles” here admit it also?

        • Sounds good- too bad the govt is all sell outs to the agenda to destroy EVERYONE, Praise Jesus !!

        • Ancient E, I wasn’t behind them last time either.

      15. and something else to keep you up at night

        Solar flare could unleash nuclear holocaust across planet Earth, forcing hundreds of nuclear power plants into total meltdowns

        “There are 440 nuclear power plants operating across 30 countries around the world today. There are an additional 250 so-called “research reactors” in existence, making a total of roughly 700 nuclear reactors to be dealt with (”

        can you imagine alarms going off at 440 nuclear facilities around the world
        and the staff of those facilities scrambling like mad to prevent a melt down ???

        nuclear power
        splitting the atom to boil water

        not one of our best ideas

        • Agreed Satori! Many authors seem to avoid covering this VERY real scenario.
          Within one to two hours after the emergency generators run out of fuel,the reactors will start to heat up.
          After 2 or 3 days of no cooling, the cooling ponds will evaporate completely from around the fuel rods.
          After that, meltdown WILL occur with probable explosions causing absolute catastrophe to the meltdown crippled reactors.

          And what’s more frightening, is the possibility our wonderful president just may get us into WW3, where the use of nuclear weapons is almost likely.
          The side that’s losing will certainly consider pushing the button!!

          • RickE… No disrespect, but you need to do some research on Nuclear reactor operation and backup systems. Dont get your data from Fear Porn sites. We have ran our pumps for weeks on generators. Hint: nukes make steam. steam makes the gen turn which makes electricity which rump the COOLING pumps. Controls are shielded.

        • Satori….this is my big concern regarding solar flares! I don’t mind living as though it were the 1800’s with no modern conveniences, but nuclear power plants going into melt-down would be a very troublesome issue to say the least, unless you have a bunker? Then maybe….

          • Dont worry about the Nuke plants. Its the Fag with the football in the white Hut that will gamma us all.

        • Thats a crock of shit. loss of grid will not meltdown a reactor.

          • Well Dave in Id that’s good to know…one less thing to be concerned about!

          • How long will the people stay in place to keep things running would be my concern if the plants are fully self contained. When their families and friends are dealing with the chaos that would ensue, how long before people start slipping off to protect their homes and loved ones each person assuming someone else is going to stick around and keep things running?

            • As long as it takes, rotating shifts. They know they are dead if they dont.

      16. and so why aren’t our illustrious leaders taking steps to have backup generators or electrical services providers, or whatever these things that take two years to build are called, waiting somewhere in a warehouse? are they possibly too busy lining their own pockets with everything they can steal for themselves and their buddies to be worried about such trivial matters that involve us “little people”?

      17. Hmmm, this statement combined with the DHS “Grid failure” drill set for the next month or so………..

        1yr food, 1yr water 1yr cook fuel 1 yr sanitation and supply and 2x55gal of gas/diesel to get to where you gotta go…we might be in for a doozy…

      18. Fact: I live up in the Michigan wilderness secluded in the woods,My uncle and his 2 kids came to visit me for a weekend,By the 2nd day my uncle and cousins were complaining how bored they were,Then my one cousin a 18 year old girl started complaining of anxiety/panic attacks because there was no internet or cell phone usage available. Day 3 they were all loosing their minds and left,All because there was no cell phone/internet access where I live. And folks I did not make this story up – That right there is your average American citizen and if an EMP etc. ever shuts down the electrical grid,Buckle up because the masses are going to go ape-shit.

        • Joe91;

          I understand EXACTLY what your saying. People WILL go BAT SHIT NUTS without their modern gadgets. People today; as a whole; are more arrogant; rude; self serving; self centered than I can ever remember in my life; and that’s WITH their stuff. Can you imagine the hell when its gone completely? In my opinion; the BRAT GENERATION has its hands on the wheel; whether we like it or not.

          • joe91 and dave, I made it for the best part of my life without modern gadgets and will make it again without them if/when it comes to that. People today are just not what they ought to be at all. the alcoholics only want their next bottle. the dopeheads only want their next fix. Once that stuff is no longer available, those will be the most dangerous people to deal with and most likely they’ll just have to be put out of their misery with a bullet to the head apiece. braveheart

            • Best or Better part of your life. Memphis is a frontier.

          • I can live without my gadgets, but I still hate the thought that I’ve spent so much money on them over a period of time to just watch them blow up.

            Everything, refrigerators, generators, my computer equipment, digital camera, communications equipment, et al…hell, it could even take out my night vision devices.

            …and I hate them damn wind-up alarm clocks…tick-tock, tick-tock, tick-tock, tick-tock.

            Okay, I’m done whining now.

        • Not–they’ll be too busy surviving!!
          Finding, packing water.
          Building a fire with sticks to cook that last can of chicken noodle if they have matches!!

          • As Joyzy posted earlier. They will be waiting for the gov to bring them food, water, and a new Obamaphone.

        • I know for a fact i would get a whole lot more farm work done if everything electronic was dead!
          Not only because i wouldnt be looking at SHTFplandotcom but because im pretty sure there would be a few folks in the neighborhood more than willing to trade some weeding or hoeing for veggies!

      19. This blog entry sent me on a journey to learn more about Faraday cages. This was the only article I had time to read. It did cross my eyes, but I also laughed a lot at the unexpected, crazy quips the author makes.

      20. When you go to wikipedia and check on Yvette Clarke she is a Democrat, liberal piece of crap. Supports everything that I don’t. It is getting so bad that I smell a rat around every corner. And if dear old Janet Nap has anything to do with it; a big UGLY rat. By their grid-down exercise in November; it may never be grid-up again.

        Damn, it is hard to be optimistic anymore.

        • @pissed off granny….as I watched the videos and read I realized how convenient that the comet will be passing earth, during a grid down exercise, also during a time of high cyber attack rate. It’s just too damn convenient for them to blame someone or something else to scare the sheeple. I have geared my prepping for life without electricity as best I can. I only started prepping 2 years ago, so have a ways to go. I worry about being in the northeast, but if the truck survived, we could grab the gas, load up and go south. We are starting some construction that could be a BOL if necessary. So much to do and so little time.

        • Repeat for Granny—
          ***The Likelihood of a severe geo-magnetic event capable of crippling our electric grid is 100%.
          -Congresswoman Yvette Clarke (D-NY), Senior Member House Homeland Security Committee***

          And what if this lady knows of a special interest project just ready to get started connected to an EMP or solar spurt to save our nation.
          Oh, wait, she does. It’s her BIL’s project and he just needs a few billion dollars funding!!!

        • A liberal Democrat who spews alarmist rhetoric like this is just another fear-monger. Stirring up fear in people is one of the oldest, most proven, and most effective methods to manipulate people. When people are in fear, they rarely think clearly or with discipline. Instead, they think with only their emotions, and as the result, can be talked into things that they otherwise would never accept.

          Fear those who wish to instill fear in you.

      21. Any statement involving math coming from a Communist like Yvette Clarke should be immediately dismissed.

        That being said, I WILL trust the words of Mr. Bolden at NASA. I think I mentioned in on this site once or twice before that the reason I prep is because of a conversation I had with two NASA guys at Langley back in 2007. Scared the piss out of me. And this isn’t conspiracy stuff. They were the first guys to tell me about the Carrington event and then they explained the effects of a nuclear detonation in the upper atmosphere. Again, these were your average physicist & engineer kind of guys… They ran the math and decided to put away food, water and other necessities for their families, and they persuaded me to do the same. Best conversation I ever had.


      22. A gut wrenching scenario; we hit Syria; they WILL retaliate with Russian made shore to ship missiles. All hell will break loose, WW-III. And we lose.

      23. Snooze you loose.

      24. Can a pacemaker/defibrillator be protected with a Faraday cage?

        • The defib can but the pacemaker is in you I imagine so you would have to be in the cage. For defib get a new metal garbage can, line it with cardboard, put defib in and put on the lid. All in can should be ok. James

          • Thanks for the suggestion, James, but my husband has a Dick Cheney model pacemaker/defibrillator that keeps him alive. I may have to make him a Faraday Cage to get into.

      25. Its a possibility that the pole shift end of an age events propisized in the bible and by Nostradamus & Edgar Cayce are happening? The magnetic north pole is indeed shifting. It shifted 41 miles in 2011! This pole shift & climate change isn’t caused by mans activities. Its not gods punishing man for sinning. These events would still be happening even if man had never walked the earth. These clatyclisims are occurring both in frequency and magnitude. there is nothing we can really do to change the government or the planet. There isn’t a normal or optimal climate and no one has the authority to dictate just what the climate should be. I don’t know if the planet Nibiru exists or not? All I know is that something is out of kilter. Something is up with the earth,sun, moon & stars. End of an age earth changes? Nothing we can effectively do to prevent or mitigate the earth changes. Just as well embrace the new adventure.

        • Not much of a hurricane season.

          • yes

            and thank God for that !!!

            hope we make it through September

            that’s prime time

        • There is a major shift in human history every 500 years. These ‘shifts/changes are so pronounced we give them names. dark ages, middle ages etc, etc.

          Here we are at the beginning of another 500 years. What will we name this age < — if were still around

          • darky ages?

            • Help me out here, Wrong

              • That was soooooo bad! LOL

          • The monkey with a hand grenade age.

      26. Most of us are prepared for this type of event. You need to be away from people when they go nuts. Kill or rob you for a bag of ice. Better put away some Tiki Torches and lamp oil. Can you correctly trim a wick for a hurricane lamp or camping lantern. Be careful for you are working with a LOW TECH ITEM. Save your batteries for something else.

        If you have prepared and put stuff away. the one thing most important is where you are when it happens. At Home or a hundred miles away.

        • Good suggestions slingshot! May I add that those solar yard lights that are popular right now make GREAT lights for indoors as well! They’re bright and a person can read from them with the more powerful lights. Try them before you need them.

          • I got a handful for a buck apiece at the dollar tree.

        • Hopefully,
          Asleep and just wake up to silence!
          Well other than dogs chickens crickets deer and other nature noises!

        • Don’t know if everyone knows that you can run your old Coleman fuel stoves and lanterns on regular gas. Coleman fuel is just low octane gas to begin with. Use the lowest octane with the least additives in that you can get.

          It may be good to keep an extra generator for your stove since the additives in modern gas tend to dirty them up after a while.

          These old lanterns and stoves can be had for cheap. I see them every time I go to the flea market.

          • JRS

            A word of caution on fuel for camping stoves. I believe Coleman fuel is what they call White Gas and is more refine than regular gas. The newer stoves have multi fuel capabilities. Coleman has Red and Silver generators for this reason. I would make sure which fuel is used in each to avoid a mishap. I do not know if there is a difference in the Old Leaded Gas and the New Ethanol mix. Octane matters too.

            • “White gas”…yes that is what we called it as kids. It gets that name because they didn’t put the dye in like they do for normal gasoline.

              I’m not sure it is more refined. It is lower octane than regular gas. Dad got it at the Sunoco station.

              I don’t know much about the newer dual-fuel ones as mine are probably antiques. Thanks for that info on the newer generators.

            • You just have to clean the regulators (whatever you call the thing you pump pressure into the tank with) more often if you use unleaded gas. My dad lived with his old coleman 2-burner stove for decades. He showed me how to pull it out and clean the spring and service the diaphragm.

              The man could make just about anything work.

              • ops, sorry, got my gizmo’s mixed up.

      27. You all have no idea how relieved I was that this article turned out to be about EMP’s. I took one look at that first picture in the article and I thought we were being attacked by giant spiders from outer space and that’s something I haven’t prepped for yet. But seriously, with glorious leader pulling his usual BS it wouldn’t surprise me if that scenario somehow managed to find a way to play out.

        The EMP of coarse, wow giant spiders from outer space, that would be creepy.

        • and that’s worse than obomber, how?

      28. Well darn, last week I ordered a couple of solar panels and the equipment to utilize them. Maybe I should just return them and get some new carpets and silk socks, at least after an EMP I could still make static electricity.

        • Thanks Rick, almost snorted my Mountain Dew out of my nose!

      29. Okay, seriously…..a while back someone listed a software program that would copy an entire website that could be saved to a hard drive, or flash drive which could en be stored in a faraday cage with a laptop and solar charger setup so that ll of the info could be accessed if grid down. What was the name of the software, and is it legal? (It’s not like hacking is it?

        I have a binder I keep essential copies stored in, but I can’t print everything I may need to access if a grid down occurs. I think that no matter how much you prepare, you can’t commit it all to memory. Very unlikely I have like minded neighbors. I have a small ‘library’ on canning, homesteading and a couple of survival books. I would like to have an electronic library tucked away. You never know. It may only be the net that goes down.

        • Use Black Widow from SoftByte Labs. It is entirely legal. It just follows every link on a page to the depth you set and saves the entire site or just the file types and sizes you desire. You could do the same thing manually, but the software can work all night and not miss a thing.

          I have a solar setup, a netbook computer (plus lots of other computers for backup), and multiple 2 and 3 TB hard drives. My solar setup can easily power the netbook and one or two hard drives at a time. The next thing I need to work on is a hard copy index of all my drives so I can power up the right one when I need to find out something. I have copies of thousands of technical books on every subject under the sun. I also have copies of thousands of fiction books for entertainment. I have all my favorite recordings, photos, home movies, and documents on the computer.

          There are some other things to look at. Wikipedia has a monthly text-only backup that you can download. That could be handy. Check out Project Gutenberg. That project has been digitizing public-domain books and documents since 1971. I think they are up to around 40,000 items, such as Mark Twain, Edgar Rice Burroughs, the human genome, pi to a million digits, video of the first atomic blast, etc., but mostly fiction and non-fiction books.

          To get lots of files quickly, check out usenet newsgroups and the software Newsrover. It costs about $40. Giganews costs about $40 a month for their best plan. There are music files, books, magazines, comic books, movies, and old TV shows. And there are new files added every day.

          Some sites, such as survivalblog, offer CD backups of their sites.

          I have been known to copy entire books at the library. Hint: copies are really inexpensive at UNC-Chapel Hill. If anyone squawks, I point out the “scholarly research” exemption in the copyright notice that’s usually posted on or near the copiers.

          I also keep copies of the most important files on thumb drives and carry one in my pocket all the time.

          I have been vacuuming up information for over 50 years, so I know how it’s done.

          • Thanks for that detailed info. I hope it’s useful to others as well.

          • I use my head vacuum. If I die all is lost.

            Good points…..

            “What is your best guess?”

            • I don’t believe I would have used “my head” and “vacuum” in the same sentence. Someone might get the wrong idea.

              I have a lot of information stored in my head, but I am in the process of writing it down, especially family information that no one else alive knows now.

              Years ago I started a diary. It is in a large binder. I created a document in WordPerfect with entries for every day since I was born. I started with my birth certificate, shot record, report cards, school book fee receipts, etc. and documented each day that I could.

              Then I found weather records for each of those days. That helped me peg some of my memories to exact dates, such as a hurricane which directly hit my home town. For things that I couldn’t remember or find the exact date, I wrote them up at the beginning of the appropriate month. If I didn’t know the month, I wrote at the beginning of the year.

              I have receipts for everything, every email I have ever received, digital photos that are dated, regular photos that I have noted dates and places on, and all other computer files with their date stamps.

              I mentally revisited each grade in school and wrote down everything I could remember, teachers, students, and stories. I am working through a similar process with my various jobs and church memberships.

              Was “What is your best guess?” a question to me? If so, I am pretty sure we are going to war, even though we don’t want to. As far as a world war, I’m not sure. We may muddle through somehow. I won’t be happy with conditions, but I’ll get by. I have my father’s analytical brain and my mother’s ability to improvise. Plus I have a great desire to see what the future will bring. Still waiting for the flying cars!

              I live in a farming community where everyone not only knows everyone else, but is also related ten different ways (except for some of the Mexicans and they are hard workers). My biggest fear in my area is the fact that not enough people have heirloom seeds. I may buy extras to pass out later this year. We have enough of everything else to be self-sufficient for years if everyone can keep it together.

      30. The America Blackout and Grid Shutdown video seems credible and well made. I could do without the hokie sound track in the background, which doesn’t add anything to its persuasiveness.

        Apart from continuing to do what I have been doing, I don’t know what more I can do. It makes me sad that people I care about will have a worse time of it than I will have if this happens.

        For most people, the reality is they have more pressing things to think about. Their wife has cancer. Their daughter is run around Sue at high school. Their employment contract expires in two months and then what will they do?

        Just my guess, but most Amurikans who don’t have a STEP background have a capacity to deal with technical issues that goes no farther than H20 = water.

        If they can’t deal with the reality that our currency is debased, something they use every day, talking about an EMP just makes them roll their eyes.

        Applause to the people who made the video. At least they are doing something positive about it.

      31. THIS or a freakin meteor or a return to the Ice age or maybe a really really big bomb- but most likely we’ll be taken down by that tiny microscopic bug!

        You should of course still move to the country before its to late!

      32. Bring it on! 1700s here we come!

      33. Chief of Russian armed forces’ general staff postpones visit to Austria

        VIENNA, September 3 (Itar-Tass) – Russia’s Chief of the General Staff and First Deputy Defence Minister Valery Gerasimov has postponed his scheduled working visit to Austria. “It was a forced decision,” Russian Ambassador to Austria, Sergei Nechayev, said on Tuesday.
        “It is not meant against Austria,” he said at a ceremony of awarding Russian defence ministry’s medals to Austrian citizens. “The visit has not been cancelled, it was postponed and will take place without fail.”
        The medals to Austrian citizens who did much to perpetuate the memory of Soviet soldiers who died during WWII were to have been awarded by the Russian Chief of the General Staff.
        According to earlier reports, the central command of the General Staff of the Russian Armed Forces was put on alert after Israel and the United States had staged missile tests in the Mediterranean Sea.

      34. Two large Russian amphibious assault ships sail off to Mediterranean

        MOSCOW, September 3 (Itar-Tass) – Russia’s Black and Baltic Sea Fleets’ Ropucha-class landing ships Novocherkassk and Minsk have sailed off for the Mediterranean Sea, the press service of the Russian defence ministry told Itar-Tass on Tuesday.
        “The Russian Navy continues stage-by-stage rotation of warships and support ships of the standing naval force in the Mediterranean,” the spokesman said. “Having passed through the Bosporus and Dardanelles straits, the big landing ships will reach the designated area in the Mediterranean Sea on September 5 or 6 to start their mission under the command of the remote zone headquartered onboard the big anti-submarine ship of the Russian Pacific Fleet Admiral Panteleyev.”
        Currently, one of the key tasks of the Russian standing naval force in the Mediterranean is “comprehensive monitoring over the air, underwater and surface situation in the zone of its deployment,” the Russian defence ministry said, adding that the rotation of Russian warships in the Mediterranean Sea would continue till mid-September.

      35. O-L-D news…
        C’mon – the American Society of Engineers came out YEARS ago and said this would happen as the US infrastructure is decrepit and would take more than the US debt JUST to bring it all up to usable levels let alone modernise it all.
        Next story please.

        • It’s old news to some of us, but it might be the first time the other 5,000 readers of this site have heard about it. This story needs to be brought up at least every other month.

      36. Russian legislators offer American counterparts meeting on Syria

        MOSCOW, September 3 (Itar-Tass) – Speaker of the Russian Upper House Valentina Matviyenko has suggested to the leader of the democratic majority at the U.S. Congress Harry Reid immediately convening a meeting of representatives of the parliaments of the two countries in order to take mutual steps for settlement of the Syrian problem.
        The Russian parliamentarians are ready to meet either in Washington or in Moscow or in any other place convenient for the U.S. side, Matviyenko said in a message addressed to the U.S. congressman.
        The Russian speaker has called on the U.S.congressman to make every possible effort in order to prevent the dramatic developments in Syria from turning into a large-scale regional catastrophe.
        Using force against Syria torn by the civil war in circumvention of the UN Security Council would be an act of outrageous violation of the norms of the international law and play into the hands of the extremist and radical groups in the Middle East, Matviyenko warned in the message.
        The Russian speaker urged the leader of the democratic majority in the U.S. Congress to refrain from hasty resolutions and reasonably assess the consequences of a possible strike. The most horrible thing would be the death of thousands, thousands of people, including women and children, Matvieynko warned. “As a parliamentarian and a diplomat I call upon you to make joint efforts so as to avert fatal acts while it is not too late,” the Russian speaker stressed.
        Valentina Matviyenko and State Duma Speaker Sergei Naryshkin suggested using a dialogue between the Russian and American parliaments to resolve the Syrian crisis at a meeting with President Putin on Monday.
        “We think it necessary to engage the parliaments of our countries more actively. We want to ask the [U.S.] senators and members of the U.S. House of Representatives to start a dialogue with Russian partners,” Matviyenko said.

      37. Oil may become ‘military bonus’ from aggression against Syria

        A looming war in the Middle East may be quite useful for the Russian budget. Experts from the French bank Societe Generale believe that the world oil price may skyrocket to 150 U.S. dollars per barrel, the Nezavisimaya Gazeta daily reported.
        For Russia, the budget of which is formed almost by half from the oil and gas revenues, this scenario would be a gift, the article noted. Even the cutting of budget expenditure, about which President Vladimir Putin warned, may not be needed.
        “According to the estimates of analysts from Societe Generale, the oil price may reach $150 per barrel in the worst case that will exceed a historic record level of $147.5 per barrel in 2008,” the daily noted.
        After it was reported about an alleged use of chemical weapons in a Damascus outskirt on August 21, the Brent oil price went up six percent from $109 to $116 per barrel that is the highest level for the last two years. “The analysts are concerned that military actions in Syria may exert some pressure on the oil reserves of other countries in the region. Moreover, the disorders in Egypt, through which the Suez Canal is passing, being one of the main oil delivery routes, should not be ignored,” the Echo of Moscow radio station noted.
        Meanwhile, Russia is traditionally dependent from the world prices on the energy carriers. Analysts from the Gaidar Institute of Economic Policy have recently noted this fact. According to their reports, the oil and gas revenues will reach 44-46% of federal budget revenues in 2013-2015. The Russian authorities have already prepared for the budget sequestering amid the current stagnation.
        The change in the average Urals oil price by one U.S. dollar will result in over one percent change in the oil and gas revenues. This change makes 70-75 billion rubles.
        “A Western military intervention against Syria is becoming more and more real, therefore, traders throughout the world focused their attention on the black gold prices,” the Nezavisimaya Gazeta daily quoted director of the analytical department of the Alpari company Alexander Razuvayev as saying.
        “From our point of view, the 2003 situation, when the United States and its allies unleashed a military operation against Iraq, may recur at the raw material market,” the expert noted. “The oil will get a military bonus, the Brent oil price per barrel may reach $120 per barrel or even $130 per barrel, but it will hardly break the historical maximum levels of 2008,” he noted.
        Co-director of the analytical department of the Investcafe agency Grigory Birg agreed that the Brent oil may reach $150 per barrel in some variant of development, “This may happen if the international military forces will unleash active combat actions in Syria.”

      38. I believe A CME type event would not affect our military capability to any appreciable degree, all or most
        of our ships, equipment and man power would survive
        relatively unscaved.

        The Federal Gov. would be quickly repowered and reestablished, maybe moved aboard an Aircraft carrier

        Then a number of very unpleasant thing would begin to happen,

        Laws would be passed, then preppers and survivalist
        would be labeled Hoarders, Separatist, Racist,
        and Criminals. and hunted down by surviving officialdom
        and bounty hunter types.

        FEMA prison camps, check points,firing squads
        the war on free citizens goes into high gear!

        Oh,…and you wouldn’t have power.

        • Batteries, I tell ya. Lots and lots of batteries. ;0)

          • Right on, slingshot. I couldn’t emphasize enough about having a shitload of batteries for radios flashlights, lanterns, etc.

          • Make sure they’re rechargable and you have the ability to recharge them if there’s no power at the wall. Just went through over the weekend and topped off every battery we have. Five chargers running for a day got r done.

            • HisArmsWide, I tried some rechargeable ‘AA’ batteries and they didn’t last any longer for me than the non-rechargeables. appreciate the thought anyway.

              • yeah, but being able to recharge them makes them work longer for you in the end.

      39. well now
        this is certainly interesting

        Matt Drudge Breaks Up With Republicans, Joins Libertarians

        I’m glad Matt

        “”It’s now Authoritarian vs Libertarian,” Drudge tweeted. “Since Democrats vs. Republicans has been obliterated, no real difference between parties…”

        • “I’m glad Matt
          finally figured it out !!!”

          Amen, and about time!

          • BTW, this article could have endorsed even worse potential CME implications. The “congress-cretin” could have stated a 110% probability.

            That would really get my attention.

      40. Today I watched the congressional hearings on Syria and then I saw BO talking, and NEVER have I been so throughly disgusted at the utter bold faced lies that was going on. Frankenstein kerry and BO looked unusually difficult choking it through, like they were trying to shallow the utter sh^& that they were trying to tell to the Anerican public.

        It reminding me of a Simpsons cartoon in which montgomery Burns the own of a nuke power plant was trying to convince everyone that he was honest to run as a politician, and that is nuke plant was completely safe. Until that is Marge served hin a mutanted three eyed fish for dinner. Burns took one bite of it and spit it out. Headlines, Burn can’t swallow own story.

        This is what ALL of us are witnessing with these politicians about Syria, they can’t even shallow their own lies much longer because they know it is pure cow manure. They know that Syria would not risk releasing gas where their own troops could be exposed. They know this a false flag to attack Syria because of the natural gas pipelines and the petro dollar. They know this is to get to Iran, and then get to the energy rich Caspian Sea region. They know that the stories that they tell are completely horsesh&*.

        You can see when someone is trying to convince others of a lie, but especially when they are trying to convince themselves enough that they are believable is something that is sickening beyond words. This was extremely obvious with BO and Frankenstein today. You can only lie so much, then it starts to ooze out of every part of the face what pure crap they are feeding the public.

        Even the masses, that are mostly zombies, are not buying into this crude. That is how much of a false flag this is, it is not even believed by the common idiot. You would think they would have come up with something that most people would say, yeah we need to get Assad. Russia and China of course see what is happening, and even England did. The French have some sort of interest in this and the reason why they are continuing to back this act. United Arab Emriates, Turkey, and Saudi Arabia of course want Syria to fall so they can get that natrual gas pipeline through Syria into Turkey.

        I think the stupidest player in this whole charade is Saudi Arabia. Here is a country very wealthy and doesn’t stand to lose much because they can continue to sell oil. Yet these idiots are f’en with Russia’s economic well being, and helping the U.S. to further box Russia in. Saudi Arabia wants have Iran destroyed, China’s biggest source of oil. In the best interest of Russia, the annihilation of Saudi Arabia would mean much less competetion, extremely high fuel prices and a bonzana of revenue for Russia. It would only take a couple of Russia Boomer submarines to end Saudi Arabia as a country. Why Saudi Arabia is not just be as neutral as possible and just taking a businessman’s approach to all of this really shows how brainless the ruling monarchy is in Saudi Arabia.

        Instead countries like Saudi Arabia and Qatar are more interested in even more money, greed. When is enough is enough? Is the very survival of your country a high enough price to just back off? Evidentally not, as these countries try to push the nuclear envelope to the brink. It may be China that does something, as they need that fuel from Iran. Russia would lose little and gain a lot by taking out Saudi Arabia IF Syria was to fall to western hands. Russia can’t let their monopoly of natural gas sales to europe fall.


        Here is what is to worry about and is NOT talked about at all. The U.S. says they will attack Syria and degrade their ability to wage war. There is a likelihood this means attacking Hezbollah in Syria AND in Lebanon. At this point Iran, Hezbollah, Hamas, Syria, and maybe a few others are going to launch everything they have at Israel and the U.S. interests. This means Iran mining to Persian Gulf and likely attacking all oil interest within 1000 miles of them. In other words Russia and China will have to get involved in this to save their interests in the region. World War 3. There is a small chance that Syria will just absorp an attack if it is small enough, but IF the U.S. broadens this to many more targets, GAME OVER.

        • BO is a true Muslim. He likes Alqueda and does his best to place the brotherhood in power in any country he can. He wears and Alluha Akbar ring for God’s sake. In this shit he is forcing now, he gets to install Alqueda in Syria and simultaneously piss off the Syrian regime thereby (hopefully to him) initiating a strike against Israel (whom he hates). He is like that kid with a stick that knocks down the wasp nest while his friend stands still and gets stung. BO will strike and run, and Israel gets to sit there and deal with the pissed off wasps as BO laughs his ass off. All the while, he continues the financial collapse and indebtedness of the US.

        • Be Informed;

          Have you read the book THE PRIZE by Daniel Yergin? I have. Business week had deemed it to be “the best history of oil ever written”. It is a Pulitzer Prize winning account of the global pursuit of oil, money, and power. There is a newer version that has been extensively updated to address the current energy crisis.

          It is a no holds barred story of the true account of why we have wars and who sanctions those wars. Contrary to popular belief Roosevelt KNEW our ships were going to be bombed in Hawaii. Just like today; TPTB had to cause something so horrific that the American people would support the war.

          The book is not dry, matter of fact it is a “page burner”. Everytime I am in a used book store I ask for it and buy it for a friend.

          I see the updated version is on Amazon. Might be in used book stores by now.

          It sure made me look at history in a different light.

          PS: Your post is good info.

          • I just ordered it used from Amazon. Thanks.

        • Honestly,
          I cant blame Syria, Iran and Hezbolla if they blow the crap out of anything associated with the US if the US is stupid enough to bite again, buncha stupid greedy assholes running this show in Dc.
          Its just a shame that good people on all sides will get screwed by this.
          In my mind BO and anyone else who endorses attacking Syria is guilty of treason for aiding the enemy (Alquaida).
          They need to be held accountable for this and i think there are enough active duty military as well as armed patriots to burn these assholes.

          • Clarify
            Active duty military who disagree with BO and the likes of mccain and king

        • Be Informed,

          I think Saudi Arabia and Qatar would be the biggest WINNERS from a military strike on Syria.

          Who Benefits From a War Between the United States and Syria?

          “The party that stands to benefit the most is Saudi Arabia, and they won’t even be doing any of the fighting.”

          “Now the Saudis are trying to play their trump card – the U.S. military. If the Saudis are successful, they will get to pit the two greatest long-term strategic enemies of Sunni Islam against each other – the U.S. and Israel on one side and Shia Islam on the other. In such a scenario, the more damage that both sides do to each other the happier the Sunnis will be.”

          “It is an open secret that Saudi Arabia is using Jordan to smuggle weapons into Syria for the rebels. Jordan says it is doing all it can to prevent that and does not want to inflame the situation in Syria.”

          Is The United States Going To Go To War With Syria Over A Natural Gas Pipeline?

          “Why has the little nation of Qatar spent 3 billion dollars to support the rebels in Syria? Could it be because Qatar is the largest exporter of liquid natural gas in the world and Assad won’t let them build a natural gas pipeline through Syria?”

      41. And to think that 40 million people will vote all Democrat in 2014.

        And also, with Democrat votes we almost had the UN police taking away the 2nd Amendment.

        And 40 million people will vote all democrat.

        2014 is it. And I am assuming we make it there.

      42. Hey John W. I said a major earthquake was coming to Japan yesterday on comment #2163189. Just had a 6.5 a few minutes ago. Guess the earthquake predictions are not so much garbage are they?

        • there will be a hundred or so in california today. Yay, I can predict earthquakes too.

          thumbs awaY!!!!

      43. Don’t forget there will be a GOBERNMENT GRID DRILL scheduled for November 2013. You KNOW how that goes. Have No FEAR

      44. When they start spending the money to harden the grid, I will believe they’re serious about this.


        Doesn’t it… strike you as… I don’t know… ODD… that they keep going “the grid’s gonna go down the grid’s gonna go down the grid’s gonna go down AAANDDDD it’s all the sun’s fault, trust us”?

        That… strikes me as… shall we say ODD…

        I mean… in light of all the ammunition and troops floating around here… that strikes me as… just… rather… peculiar.

      45. Here is another example of why our country is in the shape it is. As I have said before, the hippies are running this country and they have infested every part of it. This link shows Gen. Wesyle Clark former supreme commander of NATO at burning man in Nevada. If you don’t know what burning man is, its a bunch of scumbags hippies running around naked and stoned in the black rock desert just north of our house. We witness some of the most disgusting examples of humanity every year this scumbag reunion comes around.

        God help as all. These shitbags will destroy everything before going to the great Zen cave beyond.

        • Maddog:

          Happened to be going to Reno at the same time these “dogs” were on the road. Didn’t know at the time what the riff-raff hippie caravans were all about. At the casinos the help would tell you to keep your hands washed because the “burning man” creeps were in town.

          From the pictures it is an unbelieveable site. The devil has to be rubbing his hands and dancing with glee. Those insane morons VOTE. Makes me feel warm, fuzzy, and secure knowing that.

          Wesley Clarke is a commie. And obviously a dirt bag.

          Our nation is in such a mess that only the good Lord can sort it out. He has promised to do just that. Hope he hurries.

          • Pissed Off Granny,

            You would be surprised to find out just who these burners are. John_Allen says I over estimate the abilities of the hippies. A small amount of research will revile these shitbags are not only banksters and US Generals but also heads of corporations and other society controlling organizations like media outlets. In addition they come from around the world. That being said, washing your hands was good advise. If you knew everything the degenerates have done you would have washed much more.

            By-the-way I’m listening to Rush right now and he is talking about the 60′ radicals running things now, pointing out John Kerry.

        • maddog,

          40+ years ago I was one of those hippies. With rare individual exceptions they couldn’t run a lemonade stand in August. Banksters f’ing over the country I can believe. You give the hippies too much credit.

          • John Allan: Heres Confirmation Lennin was Jewish etc.

            The Jewish Post International Edition, week ending January 24th 1991, confirms Vladimir Lenin was Jewish. Lenin is also on record as having stated,

            “The establishment of a central bank is 90% of communizing a nation.”

            On March 29th The Times of London reports on the Bolsheviks in Russia,

            “One of the curious features of the Bolshevist movement is the high percentage of non Russian elements among its leaders. Of the twenty or thirty commissaries, or leaders, who provide the central machinery of the Bolshevist movement, not less than 75% were Jews.”
            It is reported that the Rothschilds were angry with the Russians because they were not prepared to allow them to form a central bank within their nation. They therefore gathered groups of Jewish spies and sent them into Russia to drum up a revolution for the benefit of the common man, which was actually a takeover of Russia by a Rothschild controlled satanic elite.
            These Jewish spies were, in age old deceptive Ashkenazi tradition, given Russian names, for example Trotsky was a member of the first group and his original name was Bronstein. These groups were sent to areas throughout Russia to incite riots and rebellion.

            These Jewish, Rothschild funded Bolsheviks would go on in the course of history to slaughter 60 million Christians and Non-Jews in Soviet controlled territory. Indeed the author Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn in his work, “Gulag Archipelago, Vol 2,” affirms that Zionist Jews created and administered the organized Soviet concentration camp system in which these tens of millions of Christians and Non-Jews died.
            On page 79 of this book he even names the administrators of this the greatest killing machine in the history of the world. They are Aron Solts, Yakov Rappoport, Lazar Kogan, Matvei Berman, Genrikh Yagoda, and Naftaly Frenkel. All six are Zionist Jews. In 1970 Solzhenitsyn would be awarded the Nobel Peace Prize for literature.

            You Asked for Documentation….This should suffice.

            • For the Naysayers Here: Proof from Them as THE Source none can refute.

              1925: This year’s Jewish Encyclopaedia, states of the existence of Ashkenazi Jews (who represent approximately 90% of so-called world Jewry), with the startling admission that the so called enemy of the Jews, Esau (also known as Edom, see Genesis 36:1), now actually represents the Jewish race, when on page 42 of Volume V it is stated,

              “Edom is in modern Jewry.”

              So what they’re basically saying is that these Ashkenazi Jews, who represent 90% of the so-called Jewish population, are actually gentiles or goyim themselves.

              Dec 2012 dna evidence shows them as Khazars/edomites.

              • WOW! Thanks for the “PROOF”!

                Fucking nutbag.

                • who would the nutbag be?

                  • Them Guys, Eisen and all the other anti-semite nutbags that tend to blame everything on Jews and post basically nothing else.

          • John_Allen,

            Who do you think the banksters of today are. Just like my post about Gen. Wesley Clark, another 60′ shitbag. They made him supreme commander of NATO and he is now hanging out at burning man. Don’t under estimate these commie/hippies they were programmed will while taking classes in the sexual exploits of French polynesian pigmies. Look at the people around obummer, many are weather underground or come from card carrying commie parents. Hippies – Yuppies – Commies/Me Me’s

      46. Hmmmmmm, so where are the trolls RCH99 and RCH98? Probably out buying some energy bars……… but they’ll be back I suppose.

        BTW – get the book “One Seond After” and read it, NOW!! Then read it again!!


        • ready down under, SHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH. let’s not give them any ideas. it’s actually nice not having them on here now.

          • Yeah, sorry BH, shoulda shut up huh? But y’know I cant help imagining …… If the world does go to hell in a handbasket ……..the “Oh Sheeeeeeet” looks on their faces when they turn on a tap or open the fridge door.


        • My husband didn’t put it down for three days.
          He also said every member of every household should read it.
          Then, if you don’t prepare for _______(fill in the blank), then it’s not our concern any longer.

          • Hi Jay Jay

            I have read it 3 times now. The second and third times with a notebook and pen handy – for things I missed or thought of or ideas it gave me!


            • Good plan..I shared it with someone on a blog or ‘prepper’ site with the stipulation that he share it with someone.

              Has anyone noticed how when we type ‘prepper’, the red underline appears like there is no such thing?

              Are we that new to computer lingo?? We are a secret??

      47. So nice to see our elected representatives warning us about something nobody can stop. Howsabout these politicians spend a little time fixing the things we CAN control? You know, the things we ELECTED them to fix.

      48. Sure is smellin’ like the Last Days.. just sayin’

        • It always smelling, feeling etc. never happens tho

      49. Suez is still under control…

      50. Looks like we are going to be Israel’s proxy again and take out another one of their enemies. Right down the line, Iraq, Syria, Iran, Egypt, Libya, etc. I see they are calling Obama a pussy for not acting fast enough. Israel has been pulling our chains since they tried to sink the U.S.S. Liberty to get us involved in their dirty little war against the Arabs. Their fingerprints were all over the 9-11 tragedy and coverup. I guess we are just their whore. Oh well.

        • 7 countries in 5 years US targets to destabilize:
          Iraq, Afghanistan, Syria, Lebanon, Sudan, Somalia, and Libya.

        • To all my thumbs downers. Galatians 4:16

          Am I therefore become your enemy because I tell you the truth?

      51. Infidels-r-us… are among knowledgable minority who can see the real dirty picture behind the scene. Although most Americans are awaken but sadly majority still are taking about Miley Cyrus’s tongue. I guess for those who doesn’t read the history, they will see its repeats. I just hate to see our boys and girls to come home in body bags or without limbs…..enough is enough. The pig farms of Arabs and Jews in middle east is not worse the sacrifice even though they own Wall Street.

        • @ Tactical

          People have to really be blind to not see what is going on with our country and the countries we associate with. Yep, I agree that Miley’s ugly tongue and obscene antics are capturing the public’s attention and they are not seeing that piano falling out of the sky on their dumb asses. If we don’t take our country back soon, Obama and our “friends” will destroy it. WAKE UP AMERICA.

        (that just struck me as pretty damned cool!)

        • How ya doin Okie, havent seen you in a bit, but maybe thats just me bein slow

      53. Time to prime up the Goal Zero panels. And add more mountain House to the stash.

        • How are those Goal Zero products working for you?

          I’ve been curious but they ain’t cheap and I dont gamble limited resources on Bullsheite.

        • Goal zero is probably the most expensive way to have solar power. You can make your own small system from components yourself. Ebay has cheap prices on panels, charge controllers, sla batteries, inverters, and any converters you would ever need. Also Mountain House is full of chemical crap (read the ingredients). MRE’s are also chemical cocktails. Maybe try canning your own meat and veggies, way healthier!

          • Naw i,m just looking for a full belly with great taste. I like and enjoy both product. Real good to me. Besides when shtf. starts, it,ll mark the beginng of the end. Mine,s fine tasting food thats easy to work with. When shtf. I,ll be oiling my guns protecting the homestead as much as possible. No time to play super chef, or organic homesteader.

            • Goal zero fits my needs greatly. Going solar means many different things to many different preppers. Full solar or a little solar. I need a little solar. Maybe a few lights,small fridge,battery charger ect.
              I,m a simple prepper.”KISS”. Keep it simple stupid. Oil lamps, portable toilet ,battery radio ect. Sure Goal Zero costs alittle more.But there easy to use,reliable,and always there.

              • We have small solar system. Our choice was to have small chest freezer and make our own ice for keeping the “refrigerator foods” cold. 2 ice chests. We have a neighbor who says that he uses small chest freezer with an adapter on it to keep foods cool, not cold, like a chest refrig. Says the part only costs about $50. to change over. We haven’t done it yet but have gotten another chest freezer to do this to.

          • PURE BULL! Haven’t you heard…moron…everything
            is full of radiation from Japan anyway!
            You WILL NOT get out of this life alive !

        • Too bad he lost!

          (as he admitted in a tweet)

      54. Hi everybody!!!!! First time poster, long time lurker here. Blackout be careful with the Mountain House my girlfriend read on their website that the beef stew contains Aspertame!!!! WTF!!!!

        • Basil–it’s in everything we eat. Even your children’s gum…check out the ingredients and you don’t see aspartame??
          That’s because they renamed it.
          I was a gum addict; until I learned this from Alex Jones one day.
          Other names; who knows what the ‘flavor of the month’ is!!

      55. Survival is making do with things you do not have, improvising everyday, improving your circumstances short term and long term. It it is actually normal to set aside goods, whatever they may be for hard times. Up until recently this was normal. My grandparents would not see anything strange about have “extra” anything. That said most of us have limits to what we can do. One Second After was a great book, but in reality it is only one chapter that was left out. It is the chapter about 100 Fukushima’s melting down in the US. The reactors are the worry. It is the 100s of millions of spent fuel rods stored on site that lose cooling and then spew cesium 157 into the environment. Are you prepped for 50 years in a cave? This will not be a go to your fallout shelter for two weeks and all clear. No power, I don’t care, no gas, ok, no Wal-mart, great – I can manage going back in time to say 1850. But tell me the plan for a 100 Fukushimas, or tell me the cooling ponds do not lose power.

        • With the world having close to 500 Nuke reactors .. were toast…radio active toast

          want fries with that?

        • Satori, that’s because of Chavez giving away his nation’s oil wealth to his commie friends in Latin America and at home instead of upgrading his country’s infrastructure. BTW, their grid is almost as old as ours, so no surprises there. and they didn’t even get hacked or suffer an EMP/CME event.

      56. Don’t forget that there have been rumors for a long time of secret, deep underground bases that the government have made. It wouldn’t surprise me in the least bit if TPTB plan on unleashing hell above ground to cull the herd while they relax in these underground complexes. If you do even a small amount of research into the subject you’ll find pictures of huge tunnel boring machines; patents were filed back in the 60s, 70s for a nuclear powered version. Also there seems to be a lot of UFO sightings & mysterious noises around these locations.

      57. One way or the other it’s going down. I think it goes down due to economic collapse but the results are the same. Mass starvation. People freezing to death in the winter. Dying of thirst or dying from illnesses related to drinking bad water. Or dying from the lawlessness that will result from it. I expect 90% of Americans to die in the first year.

      58. Within 72 hrs. of ML being declared. All forms of commutations other than Government propaganda will end, all banks, stores, schools, etc., will be closed. All personal property will be declared to belong to the Government. People will be told to turn in everything over three days’ supply of food; water etc., to a collection points (schools). All firearms and ammunition be turned in to a collection point (NG Armory’s), this also include all fuel (gasoline, etc.) stored. All the while this is going on you will be told to turn in your neighbors, relatives, friends etc. who does not comply. Just remember back in the 2010 Censes ever front door was GPS’d. Now comes the door to door, for all that live in the woods with generators, wood burners etc.; think noise, smoke, lights– (enough said). Those resisting and live: FEMA camps.

        Food and water now will be handed out by last name; as A-D, E-H etc. If all this is Bull Shit be thankful, but any of it comes true (HELL ON EARTH FOR US). Add to it; take away from it, but JUST THINK ABOUT IT. More than likely it will go down early winter time.

        • Yeah….well, THINK about the logistics of what you say.

          1.After the first round of “collectors” are killed, who is going to take their place ?

          2. Assuming this is some kind of EMP/CME event, how is anyone going to declare ML and get that declaration out to anyone else ?

          3. These “collection” points….how is anyone going to get there ? You plan on walking 10-100 miles toting a sack of guns and jug of gasoline ??

      59. welp, my guns will still work after an EMP, so im good..because if this goes down that’s one tool I don’t want to do without, in that scenario.

        it will be short

      60. As much as it pains me to say this. Bring it. Yeah, it’ll suck and it’l suck even more for the lazy morons. But, it’ll also be a chance for everyone to pull their heads out of their butts. Communities to come togehter and help each other out. we’ll have to go back to doing things the old fashioned way for a little while, and it may provide the oportunity for countries to get their crap together or, maybe take themselves into non-existance.I look it as mother natures way of cleaning house.

        Harsh, Brutal, Yes, but it’s not hte end of the world yet. Everyone has gotten to comfy push a button, heat, electricity and water right at your figer tips. Well when you have to generate your own heat, prepare your own water, hunt and fish for your own food, you may find yourself a little better off than you once were.

        and yes, it sucks for all those who are to lazy to do things for themselves, but those who stand up to the challenge it isn’t nothing but a thing. Unless you are directly hit by whatever causes an EMP, if you have intestinal fortitude you can survive and thrive.

      61. Imagine a CME from the sun totally overwhelming the execution of WWIII. USA strikes Syria on 9/11 – in a vengeful, vindictive move, and on the pretense of a birthday gift for Assad. But, the Sun intervenes and shuts it all down.


        Pick up a cheap netbook, torent every TV series movie you want, put on a bunch of flash cards, put a couple cheap rinky dink tablets that read flash cards and a small laptop solar charger into these bags, pick up a cheap harbor freight “800”w generator and a 115AH battery from wally world… put in these bags, stick in a RUBBER LINED glavnized steel can, stick in garage….at least your with SOME form of distraction….

      63. I call false flag B.S. ! If the grid goes down, our
        own Government did it on purpose !

      64. Sorry, but using a quote from a Congresswoman to make your point was a big mistake. Some of the dumbest people in this country have been elected to Congress. Just do a search of some of Nancy Pelosi or Harry Reid’s quotes. They are unrivaled paragons of stupidity! To be fair, though, many Republicans are also remarkably ignorant. In short, I no more believe these idiots than I do the prime time media. If you wish to support your arguments that the Sun presents a genuine EMP risk to this planet, you would be much better served quoting a reputable scientist than anyone in that disreputable assemblage of morons we call our Congress.
