Green Beret Warns: “Skepticism Will Vanish When The Power Suddenly Fails Across the United States”

by | Sep 4, 2017 | Headline News | 149 comments


It should be obvious, now, even to the most vocal and acetic naysayers that no matter how much they try to declare that nothing will happen regarding North Korea, they’re wrong.  It is happening, as we speak, and the buildup reached a high octave with North Korea’s sixth nuclear detonation, one that experts are saying was between 100 to 120 kilotons.  This detonation occurred in North Korea’s test facility on Sunday, and North Korean news stated that it was a hydrogen bomb.  Here’s a Wall Street Journal article excerpt:

“In a televised statement, North Korea described the underground explosion, which triggered a large earthquake, as a “perfect success in the test of a hydrogen bomb for an ICBM.” Pyongyang said, “the creditability of the operation of the nuclear warhead is fully guaranteed.”  The test came just hours after leader Kim Jong Un showed off what he described as a hydrogen bomb capable of being mounted on an intercontinental ballistic missile.” 

Now, the Western Consumer Marketing/Euro Arrogance-Confidence News Networks and Politicos all decried North Korea’s capabilities for years.  The news-twisters and politicos still only begrudgingly admit what recognized experts have been jumping up and down to warn the public about for years, namely this:

  1. That North Korea does indeed possess nuclear weapons
  2. North Korea does have ICBM’s capable of delivering a nuclear warhead
  3. North Korea possesses the technology and the ability to deploy an EMP (Electromagnetic Pulse) weapon
  4. Submarine-Launched Ballistic Missiles (SLBM’s) are in North Korea’s arsenal
  5. Two satellites (Kwangmyongsang-3 and Kwangmyongsang-4) are currently orbiting the earth, and each satellite passes over the United States several times per day
  6. The possibility exists that the satellites are carrying/have been fitted with an EMP weapon
  7. The central focus of North Korea’s strategic doctrine regarding nuclear war is geared toward an EMP strike

This is part of that article that shows how science and stupidity go together, as follows:

In July, it test-fired two ICBMs that experts say they believe are capable of reaching many parts of the U.S. mainland.  “The Kim regime made the strategic decision to develop a nuclear armed ICBM that can strike the United States,” said Leif-Eric Easley, a professor of international studies at Ewha Woman’s University in Seoul. “It is in a sprint to deploy that capability, because it wants the world to recognize it before returning to diplomatic talks, and before sanctions become unbearable.” However, analysts have been divided on whether North Korea could shrink a nuclear warhead to fit on the tip of a missile. Many also remain skeptical about whether a North Korean warhead can survive the strain of re-entry into the Earth’s atmosphere.

Skepticism will vanish when the power suddenly fails across the United States.  The North Koreans can reach the U.S. mainland with a missile, and it will survive reentry.  They can do this, and they will…only it will not come in the form of air-raid sirens blaring and people scurrying to the basements of buildings (as Fallout Shelters don’t exist anymore).  Here is the form that it will take. This is the real “kicker” that was just released Sunday by North Korea’s state-run news agency, reported on Daily Mail and if falls in line with the items just mentioned:

“North Korea’s state news agency warned that the weapon ‘is a multifunctional thermonuclear nuke with great destructive power which can be detonated even at high altitudes for super-powerful EMP attack.”

This falls in line with the warnings of Dr. Peter Pry, the head of the Committee to brief Congress on EMP threats against the U.S., the warnings of former Congressman Roscoe Bartlett (R, MD), and a slew of other with access to detailed information on North Korea’s nuclear capabilities.  When asked if the military option is on the table on Sunday, September 3rd, President Trump responded with, “We’ll see.”

No, ‘We the People’ will see it, but he will not, except on television.  He will be in a bunker a mile underground, or in an area far removed from what happens in the moment of decisive action or the aftermath.  There’s a good chance that nobody will ever see it coming.  Remember: The North Koreans launched a missile that flew directly over Japan!  This excerpt is from AP News on September 1st and summarizes “Japanese readiness” in a nutshell:

“Japan has a two-step missile defense system, including interceptors on destroyers in the Sea of Japan that would shoot down projectiles mid-flight and if that fails, surface-to-air PAC-3s on land.”

So, with that “protection,” why didn’t they shoot down the North Korean missile fired right over them last Monday?  Maybe they were waiting for “Mothra” to stop it.

In any event, it appears the President is going to pursue a military option, as can be implied within his words.  This also comes from the Wall Street Journal article:

“North Korea is a rogue nation which has become a great threat and embarrassment to China, which is trying to help but with little success.” He also added: “South Korea is finding, as I have told them, that their talk of appeasement with North Korea will not work, they only understand one thing!”

What might that “one thing” be?  Whatever happens, you can be certain that if we initiate an attack, North Korea will have allies, as China has already informed the world.  The bottom line is that if you personally have not prepared and formulated a plan if things kick off, then you’re long in the tooth.  Don’t remain in denial that the worst can happen, and take the initiative.  It’s better to be prepared and be “wrong” every day than to be unprepared just once and have the worst come to pass on that day.

The next world war will be initiated with an EMP weapon detonated over the U.S., followed by a nuclear exchange and conventional warfare.

        It is only a matter of time! Look at their pattern of behavior, look at the response by the West and the huge payouts to the NORKs. The West are just as guilty at enabling the NORKs as China. Who provided the payments and the aid in the past under the guise of ‘Strategic Patience’?

          Unhook the solar panels from the charge controllers if you want the controller, batteries, and inverters to survive the EMP. Panels should be fine unhooked also. Epsom salt and distilled water are a must for refurbishing the batteries later.

          • GrandpaSpeaks

            What damage to lead acid batteries would result? And how/why the epsom salts? Info would be greatly appreciated Menzo.

            • Menzoberranzan

              From my understanding the emp would destroy the plates in the batteries, and certainly the charge controller and inverter. When a Lead Acid Battery goes seemingly dead, drain all the old liquid out, mix 3/4cup of Epsom salt with a cup of distilled water that you’ve microwaved almost to boiling but not quite. Add the mixture to the battery evenly and if it doesn’t fill it all the way up add distilled water until full. Put on covers and shake battery like hell. Put on a charger until charged again. Most of the time it works unless the plates are totally screwed. It should take at least a day to show full charge when this is done, maybe more. If it says full charge too quickly, it is probably screwed. I’ve done this many times as I like solar power

                  I have two spare microwaves in the basement, the wife nags me to get rid of them. They are hurting no one. I keep their cords wrapped in cardboard, then foil, so they will survive an EMP. The cords can act as antenna and provide an entry point for an EMP spike. I also store unused electronics inside them. They are good Faraday cages assuming the cords are wrapped and shielded. Periodically they have also been loaned out to relatives who’s microwaves died, or their kids needed them in a dormitory.

                  These are worth their weight in gold, if 98% of the microwaves are fried in an EMP and anyone has power. I have inverters that will run one off a car battery, as well as a generator.

                  I’m basically ready for an EMP. I’d suggest, six months of food, alternate energy sources. Seeds and garden tools. Some portable two way radios.

                  Interesting we went on vacation and my son in law had just bought a pair of two way walkie-talkies on sale on Amazon prime day. They claim a twenty mile range. Yeah, that’s line of sight only. Across the lake if I could see the boat we could talk. Put some trees in the line and the range suffered badly, put a hill in the line of site, and they were useless. These name brand radios were quite disappointing.

                  These radios also came with built in rechargeable batteries. They are lithium non standard, hard to replace. I also recently bought a battery powered portable radio that uses an obsolete cell phone battery. Not happy. It has short life, and the battery is hard to get already. I want to get a new radio that uses standard AA or AAA NiMH rechargeable batteries. I have them in abundance, plus chargers, one is even solar. Of course that old radio would get stuffed in one of those old microwaves.

                    Microwaves destroy all the nutrition in food. Havent used one in 15 years when I got that factoid. Thats why stupid people are so fat. You body craves nutrition and you keep feeding it shit pretending its food nuked from a microwave.

                    Heres Proof. Do this test. Get 2 healthy identicle plants in pots water one plant with bottled water and water the other plant with the same bottled water only nuked in a microwave. In a few weeks the plant using nuked water will be dead and the other will be thriving.

                    Microwaves kill the nutrition in food. Always cook your food with natural heat not by microwaves.

                  Maybe NK will do the emp, but how will we know? Some ally of the satanic Shadow Government will do it because they have a serious blood lust to take out Trump and the Deplorables (aka goyim).

                  I used to worry that some rogue state would take out DC, now I am thinking it might be a blessing because it is so corrupt there is very little we can do to reclaim our Constitutional Republic.

                Thanks Menzo, I have 2 tons of 120 pound batteries. Guess I’ll have to get Grandma to shake em up. Seriously, this is good info that needs to be developed. I am wondering if an EMP could be handled using the same theories as with lightning, only beefed up. Perhaps a grounding system with many rods that are interconnected underground, more than would be adequate for lightning. New aircraft and motorcycle batteries are stored dry and acid is added when they go into service. A spare bank stored dry could survive but at an expense that may be prohibitive compared to grounding. Ideas anyone? Thanks again Menzo.

          • gandhi

            non of that will help, panels unless shieled will be ruined depending on the EMP power. even if the equipment survived the first EMP pulse because you had it shirlded, what about the next 100 consecutive EMP strikes over the next 6 months. do you think it would be a one event attack? grow up.

              You are expecting Congress to have to approve a counter attack ’cause that would mean we were going to engage in war! Perhaps it would take Congress six months to declare war on the NORKs and so the NORKs could keep pounding the US with EMP nukes every week! That would be a clever strategy, You are brilliant!

              IMHO, I would think if the NORKs were to succeed in exploding a nuke over the US, they would be glassed within hours and that would be their only claim to fame and the end of that. As Clint Eastwoood once said, it would be a “Make my day!” event. The NORKs are shrewd, and cunning survivors they are, and I am thinking that they fully realize that life in NORK would end if they tried anything that foolhardy.

          According to Dr. Peter Vincent Pry,

          NK is a problem to the US because China wants it to be. China and Russia have both enabled NK to pose this threat to the US for geo-strategic reasons. This is asymmetric warfare at its highest levels. NK is the pawn, being put out there to basically threaten the existing world order, which is based on US military power and credibility, and to confront us with some scarey actor, who is so unstable and so dangerous, that they’re hoping the US will abandon its security commitment to our allies i.e. Japan, SK, etc., or that our allies will abandon us because they’re afraid that we will not uphold our security guarantees to them.

          NK is the cat’s paw for Russia and China. It will cost the US to solve the problem of NK, so Russia and China can’t lose. The US will have to pay them something in order to resolve the NK problem peacefully, IF they’re willing to resolve it peacefully at all.

        Weapon may be up to 200 KT. Still need Megaton weapon to even come close to taking whole grid down. Regional grid with 100 KT, with probable cascade effects to connected grid, but not as much damage to it as with the directly effected grid. They are developing these weapons with surprising quickness. Me thinks they have had help.

        With China’s declaration about us starting something miliatarily, looks like we need a false flags that makes it look like NK started it, so we can retaliate. It can’t be a lame false flag though, like when Germany attacked its own radio station dressed as Polish soldiers, to justify the invasion of Poland. No a rocket or three needs to land in Seoul.

          there are 2 NORK satellites orbiting over the US.. 2 EMP bombs can do more damage than 1!

            Those two NORK satellites would not be capable of producing much of an EMP blast even together even if they did have small nukes.

        • JMiller

          You are correct Azrael. A more powerful nuke would be needed to take down the whole grid. Those two NK satellites could not even come close to having any nukes capable of doing any harm.

        From the article: “So, with that “protection,” why didn’t they shoot down the North Korean missile fired right over them last Monday?”

        Answer: Because the missile defenses we have only have a certain percentage of success at shooting anything down. If we made an attempt to shoot down what the KNEW was a test flight and we FAILED, we would only embolden the norks. Better to let them assume we have awesome super secret squirrrrl powers rather than demonstrate otherwise.

            Yes, their government/ military knew it when it took place. Common man didn’t hear it or see it until they were told.

          • Marcus

            Given the launch trajectory of an ICBM, it would be at nearly 150 miles altitude before it even left N. Korea. Not many cell phones there.
            Japan is about 1000 miles from NK and would be right at or after engine burnout, altitude now around 250+ miles.

            In other words, zero chance of actually being seen outside of NK, and even then only close (100 miles) to the launch site.

        You wouldn’t see something in ballistic flight. Need to shoot it down on re-entry. While THAAD is pretty good 90% of the time, it’s not 100%. Wouldn’t want to try and shoot it down and miss especially since the ballistic track was know to do no harm. I’ve personally watched THAAD at work when I was stationed at White Sands. They are cool, but not flawless.

        • arf

          90% of the time when they know the time of launch and place and direction of target missile…other wise its trying to hit a bb with a bb at 1000mph and maybe 1% with pure luck in the real world. USAF Vandenberg AFB…

            I agree about the margin of error but it always annoys me when people make the “shoot down a bullet with a bullet” analogies. You cant guide a bullet in flight, and you don’t have to actually strike the missile, just detonate close enough to damage or disable it. In other words, its nothing like shooting a bb with a bb

    6. Something ain't right

      That NK just popped up on the grid and all of sudden is a problem to be dealt with around the world appears to be propaganda. I would have to hear from the NK’s first to find out what has been going on before this. Maybe NK was incited to such behavior by clandestine orgs around the world doing their thing. NK is a sovereign nation and can obtain and test whatever they want to keep their country safe. I think countries are just mad the NK doesn’t play with them in their contrived sandbox so now the other countries want to bully them.

    7. Kevin2

      North Korea operates at the bequest of China. Coincidently coinciding (say that after 6 beers) with this is the trade negotiations with China. China is prompting North Koreas belligerent actions short of attack and has simultaneously stated their support if North Korea is attacked preemptively. China controls the magnitude and direction. The US desires China’s assistance defusing North Korea therefore China has leverage.

      North Korea is not suicidal. This is all about trade negotiations as important to China as the Oil Peg is to the US.

        So, in reality, the Strategic Patience thing really has to do more with China than North Korea. Interesting. I really think Trump hopes for some kind of brokered deal involving
        5 different nations. Each with their own “stake” in the deal. It would be a matter of brilliance
        if someone could engineer something like that. Truth is, China and Russia are seeking our
        demise in any kind of way achievable. Economic or otherwise. Secretly, I think Russia and
        China are cheering on Crazy Kim- even though they are dreading the consequences. The
        little dictator is standing up to the Great Hedgemon and playing different sides against each other. Wonder what happens in the future when Pakistan gets some kind of Little

Possibly part of a collapse scenario to cover the real perps, the MIC and the Fed to present a fake threat, a diversionary tactic as in look here and don’t look over there. These are criminals running this shit show. No more hurricanes, at least no help from your government, you are on your own because to serve and to protect only applies to the war state.

        IMHO, I think it is both useful and relevant for Preppers to be talking about EMP and Faraday cages. It IS a real possibility either from the sun, an alien invasion, or man-made. At the very moment the bet might favor the NORKs trying to do something but most likely it will be a Del-inflicted disaster for them. As the scouts say, “BePrepared”, really not a bad idea. I do not understand why folks feel they need to be badmouthing the Green Beret. His articles generate discussion and a lot of thoughtful comments are being tossed around.

    17. Richard Steven Hack

      Joel Skousen debunks the EMP threat over at his site. And today I read that experts said for an EMP attack to work, you need six carefully spaced nukes at the right altitude. Only Russia and China have that capability.

      I’ll reiterate what I’ve said before…

      1) There is ZERO evidence that NK has EMP capability regardless of their recent statement. Their recent statement was probably made because everyone in the US is TALKING ABOUT EMP.

      2) NK will not use an EMP on anyone because that will immediately cause a nuclear attack by the US on NK. They aren’t that stupid or crazy. A weapon of mass Distruction is better than a weapon of mass Disruption. The only time you use an EMP is as a prelude to a full-scale nuclear attack.

      3) NK will not attack the US. Or Japan. Nor for sixty four years have they attacked SK (except for minor incidents.) They are not going to attack anyone unless they are attacked first.

      4) The threat here is the moron Trump. Not Kim. All Kim wants is to force the US to negotiate and stop threatening his rule. What Trump wants is a total unknown – other than to continue issuing bullcrap statements that are no substitute for acting as a real President.

      Also, I read today that it is likely that NK does NOT have a full thermonuclear nuke. What they probably have is a regular nuke with addition thermonuclear fuel added. This is how the US developed higher yield nukes in the early days. This is still some distance away from having thermonuclear nukes.

      Which is irrelevant anyway since a higher yield doesn’t help NK strategically. The only thing that would make NK have a credible deterrent would be enough missiles to deliver enough nukes to threaten multiple US cities – much like China does, and of course, Russia. NK doesn’t have that and won’t have it for some time.

      Also, wasting your limited nukes on trying to hit a US city would be idiotic. You use them on your immediate strategic threat, which is the US and SK forces invading your country, the US fleet, and US air bases in the region. Otherwise you lose the war which makes hitting a US city a complete waste of time. Why kill 100,000 US civilians when you can kill scores of thousands of US troops in one blow?

      The real problem: No one pushing this stuff thinks any of it through.

      • Archivist

        How did Russia cause an EMP accidentally with just one bomb? They killed phone lines, electric lines, and a generator, among other things.

        Joel Skousen is trained in political science. Since when did he become an expert on nuclear physics?

        One atomic bomb over Kansas can take out all the unshielded electronics in the entire US.

      Advice please,

      How do I prevent an EMP from harming my generator (starter motor, battery, generator, magneto).

      Any comments are greatly appreciated.

      • grandee

        an EMP harms more than a generator

        it harms a way of life, that will not include the use of a generator

        a generator is just a new grid replacement for an old grid (elec).

        best to spend time and money and resources on ways to live off any kind of grid.

      • Plan twice, prep once

        You can make a metal box (Faraday cage) to house a generator. An inexpensive source is HVAC ductwork sheeting. Premade pieces go together quite easily. I used it to make boxes for long term food preps sold in plastic tubs that rats could eat through.

        If an EMP ever hits, don’t pull your backup electronics and generator out of their boxes, unless you have an immediate need. Even then, use them and immediately return them to their shielded box. In fact, if you suspect an EMP attack, check your house for anything that still works, radios, flashlights, batteries, computers etc disconnect all external connections and put them in a sheilded location if possible.

        A generator could be run 2 hours on 4 hours off to keep a fridge and freezer cold, saving all food, plus the house warm. Get what you need out of the fridge and freezer at the start of a run cycle. Then after the fridge has stopped running constantly, shut off and disconnect the generator, you have just reduced your chances of a second EMP by 2/3’s and used a lot less precious fuel.

        Brushless generators use diodes internally to operate. If you could handle their replacement, consider buying a set of spares, and keep them in a metal box. Likely these would be the culprit if a generator whose engine ran, didn’t make power after an EMP.

        Expect multiple EMP attacks. They’ll wait for people and government to bring up emergency backups and then wack us again.

        Even if we had a solar CME from the sun, expect some foreign power to follow it up with an EMP attack while we are weak.

      Are the impact of the EMP events additive? NASA is still recalculating the projected effect of a CME on the sun’s surface on September 4th.

      @ Menzo; how do I disconnect the panel array from the load controller?
      I have a system of 10 panels and 18 batteries, and it was installed for me 5 years ago.
      I appreciate any advice or tips. Thanks!

      • Gone Camping

        I have DC circuit breakers for each pair of panels out at the array right before they feed the main 60 Amp disconnect. The panels have internal shunts to handle their idle output. The main disconnect should be turned off as well.
        I have another junction box with a terminal strip where the wires from the array head into the charge controller. This effectively isolates the long wire run from the system at both ends and all of the components from each other. I would think your system has these same features, they are required for code in most locations.
        The charge controller must be shielded from the EMP or the mico-circuitry inside it will be fried. The power density of the pulse is low but can easily jump across the gaps in a chip. You would need to have that in some sort of faraday cage that is properly shielded and grounded. Inverters are pretty robust…the charge controller not so much.
        Worst case the panels will get Gerry rigged to the system and I’ll control the charging.

    29. tazweiss

      Everyone says to unhook your charge controllers and batteries so they won’t get fried by an EMP. They’d be useless afterward because the solar panels would be fried. So unless you have extra panels put aside, you’re going to be out of power anyway.

      Relating to the article….I think if there were an EMP it would be a false flag.

      That’s what I think.

      Stop worrying about NK,they have not emped us(yet).The sun on the other hand has emped us,called the Carrington Event,look it up.The damage it caused then will be nothing compared to what it could do now.

      Or it all could just be carefully choreographed political theater designed to divert attention.

      By this time next year, the dollar will no longer be the World’s reserve currency and currency will primarily be electronic. The US electronic currency we be devalued by 50%. Pensions will be slashed and import prices doubling. In short, a massive hit to our standard of living and a de-facto default on our debt.

      The UN has been transfering technology and cash to North Korea since the late 1990s. This has occurred through Macau in China. The UN officials who worked there are the ones responsible for this impending disaster.

      I am not convinced that North Korea has a nuclear weapon. There have been reports from the first test that there was no radiation. MSM lame duck excuse to the gullible is it’s underground. However, underground tests release too. The ground cracks, a crater forms and a plume rises. No radiation no nuke. It’s as simple as that. Two years before the first test there was a massive conventional explosion near a test site when two trains loaded with explosives collided. Mr. Kim has read and understood Sun Tzu’s The Art of War. You should too. The ruse is a common strategy. An enemy that thinks he has nuclear weapons will be hesitant to attack. His paraded missiles were observed to be dummies. His nukes are fake in my opinion. There was a report after I published that one isotope was detected. It is one used in medicine so not the byproduct of a nuclear explosion. This confirms the fake. Find isotopes that are only created in a nuclear explosion of several varieties and I’ll join the choir. Until then I say deception.

      Kim Jong-un Master of the Art of War North Korea’s Strategy for Victory


      Kim has a plan to unify Korea. It involves getting the U.S. to strike him first. His defense treaty with China kicks in. The U.S. and China go to war. In no time the Korean front becomes a side show as Hawaii and California become threatened or attacked. Kim seizes the peninsula and sooner or later the U.S. and China sue foe peace in the rubble. The people freezing in the dark will care little about Korea at that point. He will have won his war and we will have done it for him by swallowing the bait. It is the art of war after all.
