Barack Obama officially made his exit from the stage, but he left us with some major vulnerabilities – at a time when he stepped away from power with tensions at all time high with Russia.
Not only has the nation been left wide open to an EMP attack or other sophisticated barrage against our national defenses, but recent advances have left our leaders drastically unprepared for possible or even likely attack from a long line of potential adversaries.
Asymmetrical warfare on a global, electronic scale can and will play out in the years ahead – in fact, the design of the latest class of high tech weapons make sure that the next world war will be fought with EMP and
President Trump – and all presidents after him – will have to contend with this immediate and deadly threat. Even the best alliances – with Putin, with China, etc. – will not prevent rogue states or rogue groups from exacting horrible destruction.
Like it or not, our world is about as dangerous as it has ever been.
The Obama administration, on the eve of its transfer of power, is about to impose new standards to protect the nation’s life-sustaining electric grid from solar storms.
However, … pointedly, it will not protect the vulnerable national grid from a man-made, high altitude, nuclear detonation that could create an electromagnetic pulse.
Such an EMP could have a catastrophic impact on the nation’s technology-based, life-sustaining critical infrastructures.
In an email to WND, William R. Graham, who was director of the Office of Science and Technology Policy and science adviser to President Ronald Reagan, warned that the FERC has scheduled a ruling on Jan. 19 – the day before Donald Trump is sworn in… however, the FERC’s planned ruling “is likely to have far-ranging, seriously counterproductive national security implications,” according to Graham, who was chairman of the 2008 congressionally mandated EMP Commission.
The commission examined the impact of an EMP on the nation’s critical infrastructures that depend on the national grid system.
[…] Threatened are not only the nation’s power lines, but its banking, fuel supply and even food distribution systems… telecommunications,automated control systems, petroleum and natural gas, transportation, food and water delivery, emergency services and space systems.
[…] the United States is especially vulnerable since its critical interdependent infrastructures rely, more than most other nations, on electronic components… these critical interdependencies also create potential vulnerabilities and multiple, simultaneous disruptions and failures. An EMP event, whether natural or man-made, would cause “unprecedented cascading failures of major infrastructures,” Graham said.
Although the grid has not been hardened, the Pentagon has made great investment in advancing the offensive weaponry of the next generation of electromagnetic warfare.
The Department of Defense has just announced its latest electromagnetic pulse weapon – which is powerful and devastating enough to cripple electronics and grid installations across an entire major city.
The US Department of Defense is developing a powerful new weapon that could cripple an entire city without directly hurting anyone.
A recent solicitation from the Pentagon calls for a non-explosive electromagnetic pulse artillery shell capable of wiping out ‘a wide range of electronics, critical infrastructure, and computer-based systems.’
The non-kinetic system would first be incorporated into a 155mm projectile and later scaled down to enable the use of multiple shells, allowing for devastating electronic attacks that are delivered by standard munition but cause no physical damage.
And meanwhile, Russia has also been escalating its electromagnetic arsenal and other ‘checkmate’ weapons of choice that could hypothetically play out into a very brutal and short world war if things ever reached the brink.
Russia says it is working on a new range of laser, plasma and electromagnetic weapons as well as hypersonic missiles which would be able to hit a US aircraft carrier before the Pentagon even realised it had been fired.
The Kremlin’s Deputy Defence Minister Yuri Borisov said yesterday: ‘Coming next are hypersonic weapons, which require the use of principally new materials and control systems that operate in a completely different medium, in plasma.’
A hypersonic weapon is a missile which travels at Mach 5 – five times the speed of sound – and it would enable the Russians to strike a target thousands of miles away within minutes.
China is in the game, too. The new generation of ICBM and ballistic missile has put the entire world under a new envelope of threat-and-defense.

George Soros Vows To ‘Take Down President Trump’
by Baxter Dmitry
Your News Wire
Notorious globalist billionaire George Soros has gone on the record threatening to “take down President Trump” and promising an audience at the World Economic Forum in Davos that the New World Order are making the necessary preparations to completely and utterly obliterate every single Trump plan.
Speaking to a packed audience at his annual dinner at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Soros warned large multinational corporations to hold off from doing any business in the United States until he’s ended Trump’s presidency – or else face the consequences.
Asked what advice he would give to businesses preparing for the impact of the new presidency, he said “I’d keep as far away from it as I can“.

m’thinks soros is not likely to survive such an endeavor.
In all fairness to obuttboy, he left our infrastructure no more vunerable to EMP than several of his predecessors. The only thing that has changed is that EMP attack has become more viable due to technoligical advances.
If “diversity” is being used against you, loudly proclaim “How dare you assume my gender. I may appear to be a white male, but I identify as a native American muslim lesbian”.
If everybody is all worried about “equality”, why do “protected classes” exist?
When we discuss people making things from scratch, I am reminded of Gandhi’s Salt March and the teachings of America’s Founders on self-sufficiency — literal independence, in the objective sense.
Centralization is not strictly necessary, in order to provide banking, fuel, and food.
Warchild, in a way, I wish I could STOP hearing anything about the FORMER ape-in-chief, but looks like we will for a long time to come. I just love fear porn [SARCASM]
Like I always said of the “Long legged Mack Daddy” (As pastor Manning calls Baaarraaak), he is lazy, shiftless and lacks initiative.
OK, Fox biz was interviewing someone and that person told Cavuto that the DC folks are scared of DJT! Go to either Infowars or Breitbart and one of them has a video where you can clearly hear the crowd shouting “Lock Her Up” be shouted by the crowd when Hill and Bill were announced and went to take seats at the capital building, Luved It !!
SHTF Yes, we know and why we stay ready! But who would do it, now? China most likely.
The fact is, no president is going to solve this problem or any other infrastructure problem until they decide to take over all of the infrastructures and make them government services. Power, telephone internet and some water and sewer are private for profit businesses and they are only going to do what is profitable to them and their share holders. Several communities here in Florida have sold out to private companies to provide the city water and now guess what, that water is not quite as pure as they claimed it was. Now the government is spending big tax payer dollars to investigate the private companies. If they want to make the power grid safe, they (either the state or feds) will have to take them over as a national interest and fix the problem themselves.
Hells Bells this is old news. We have been under threat for more that 8 years.
The TREAT isn’t the problem. It is the reaction to the TREAT that is the problem.
We know what Obullshit and Hitlery would do. We hope and think we know what The Donald will do!! WE WILL SEE!!!
Are you willing to Stand Down? I believe the Country has changed direction for the better. Our Constitutional Rights are secure for the time being.
Like a few here have said they will not stop prepping. I will reduce my efforts but will fixate to maximize effectiveness and flexibility.
Obama has left our country FUBAR’ed . Fucked Up Beyond All Recognition. Even with all the corrections Trump can make to save the economy, there is no guarantee there will be no financial collapse. We must be fully aware that this could happen.
The next 100 days are the most dangerous.
I hope your joking with your question “Are you willing to stand down?”. I’m going out on a limb and assuming it was in jest. A direct answer – only a fool would drop their guard at this moment in history. We are infiltrated with both enemies foreign and domestic – right now, here in this land. We have almost have the population surging in escalating violence and apparent insanity. The very words in the speech, “…We will get our people off of welfare and back to work, …” will rally the masses of EBT recipients and other parasites to a fury. No, what’s coming is unrest at an epic scale and pace. Just wait ’til the “dindus” get the message that the free-ride is over and they will have to get a job to get their ‘weaves’, Fruit-Loops and housing… to name just a few things.
You are right on that.
Many feel everything will be fine but chances are things will get worse. Although I have what I need now. I will work on updates to my preps to become more efficient.
Only a fool would think that Trup is going to fix everything. His stiffest resistance will come from the repubic party. Watch what a set of balls they grow now. If he bucks the establishment too much, they’ll just JFK his ass, and use some “right-wing extremist” as a patsy.
I have been hearing for too long about the sky is falling. I even spent money I didnt have (could have put into other things) to prepare. Guess everything we were told could happen never happened. Trump is in now. Yes the economy could collapse yes the fat guy with the bad haircut is mad at us and so on and so on. Its time to get on with our lives, you cant stop it
Ah. Yes. Fear of Uncertainty and Death, (FUD), for a more managed Sheeple.
Don’t worry, I’m sure that the left are busy coming up with new ways to rescue us from Trump and ourselves.
However, archeological digs already suggest that we’ve been stupid for eons.
There must be a number of good studies done on what to do about the national electrical grid. Protection against EMP attack is only one objective. The money that was spent on Obamacare could have been spent on the grid.
I like Trump and voted for him. I believe that he will try to do what he says he will do. But that does not mean I will stop prepping. Prepping for me is about risk. And I still see loads of risks. Risks from 20 or more socialist countries and central banks that may topple the world financial system. Risks from a global distribution system that has never witnessed a SNAFU in supply of food and goods. An outdated electric grid which could shut down large parts of the U.S. with long outages. A USA overrun with all types of foreign operatives (courtesy of Obozo) that may shut down parts of the U.S. A USA overrun with all well funded types of Libtard organizations that will riot in the coming months. And the list goes on and on…
Soros is clear: do NOT invest in US or else….
Anyone who doesn’t get this message is a moron.
Big business executives are not morons!
Yes, Bobane, many big business execs ARE morons.
GM, VW, Deutsche Bank, Sears, Long Term Capital, oh, I could go on, but you’d miss the point.
How’s things in the Philippines?
Ready to move yet?
Mac thanks for posting this one, it’s a it over it can still happen ..do trolls think I am going to just suddenly disappear.. fuck the new world order. No telling what might happen, they are even more dangerous now that Trump took the White House.. and as for you jihadist, YOUR COWARD ASSES have been put on notice, come into my state and we will liquidate your asses, we, the cops and the people.
HCKS you are absolutely correct. More dangerous than ever. Even worse, they may figure out how they lost, and modify their strategy. Never ever forget who the liberals are, and never, EVER trust them. They are like jihadists… In fact, they are pure evil. Give the devil an inch, and he takes your soul. That is who they are.
Aren’t you the little boy who was frightened to death by that big bad Russian dude you ran into a while back? So, who exactly is the coward here?
I think an EMP hit Detroit years ago. Y’know… Detroit… the only city you can walk 12 blocks and STILL be at the scene of the crime… and also the city than hasn’t had a Republican mayor since 1960
An EMP is too mild for Chitcago.
We are no more vulnerable since Obomba left. Let’s just be grateful that he did actually leave.
One good thing. Obummer did not pardon hellery. ole haggy cankles can now be prosecuted. Lock Her Up!!!
I got a couple of warnings for flash floods in my area. I guess that means we should have plenty of water come spring and summer. They should pay us for taking water off their hands.
••• life is short
But those Trumps are standing tall
Obama was a true POS.
Should be charged with TREASON.
With the technology that has become available, an electrical grid based on generating electricity at a relatively few points in the grid and then distributing it over large geographic area is out of date. For a long time, we have read about how close we are to major advances in alternative energy would make alternative energy cost competitive with electricity from fossil fuels. We could create a grid where it would be more secure from disruption, more easily recoverable, and less costly per watt. The design would be greatly different from the existing grid. It is like an old car where it is difficult to get parts and the cost of major repairs exceeds how much you are willing to put into another car. Since we need a system that is operational as quickly as possible, we will put far more money into the older system than can be justified.
The electrical grid is waiting on an event to happen. Bridges and other parts of the infrastructure can fail at any time and they need money now. Losing electricity for a long time would be terrible but not as bad as having a bridge collapse under you.
Check out Floyd Taylor’s HARD-HITTING Evening Call to The Light MP3. It’s about the Inauguration of President Trump and the testimony of God that it is Time for Truth to be revealed. >>>
An EMP would shut down everything: the stockmarket, banking, business. People have no idea how fragile the US electrical grid is at the present time.
We are more likely at risk of a dozen coordinated Jihadist attacks of weak links in our power grid.
A couple years ago there was a significant blackout in one city, caused by someone shooting at a transformer sub station. We’ve also had high tension lines come down because thieves were stealing some of the structural steel off the towers to sell for scrap.
If you have not read the EMP Report to Congress, please do so. It is 204 pages long, but if you read only the leading paragraph and closing paragraph of each chapter, you will gain enough insight as to the severity of the situation that will cause you to reach some level of readiness. The Appendix on the last page of the report gives each scientist’s name, level of education, and work history. Most have extensive education and experience in either nuclear weaponry or electrical engineering. Here is the link to the report:
His worst legacy is littering radical Muslims right across the Western world. In places where life was lived like out of a fairy tale (Nordic countries etc.) are now littered with people from the third world, regularly rioting, raping, and leaching off the welfare system.
Trump needs to not waste any time on tackling this problem. We need street rips to get this group off the streets and on to buses and then planes to be deported to holding facilities for processing and disbursement. It is best to do this at nighttime and to do it in rapid sweeps.
The databases and fly lists that were stopped by Obama need to be put back in place. We also need rendition again because that actually worked as a deterrent.
Radical Islam poses a much greater threat than China or Russia: both those countries just want to do business.
