Trump Sees EMP as Real Threat… Signs Executive Order to Protect U.S. From Potential Attack

From time to time, I hear or read people saying we shouldn’t worry about or prepare for an EMP.

They argue that an electromagnetic pulse is a very unlikely occurrence. And that even if it does happen, we don’t know how it would harm our electronics.

But as foreign threats of blackout warfare continue to increase, the White House has decided to take this potential threat seriously.

On March 26, President Donald Trump signed an executive order. It directs federal agencies to identify threats posed by potential EMPs.

Federal Agencies to Assess Threat

Trump’s executive order is designed to protect America’s critical infrastructures. This includes our electrical grid, telecommunications, transportation, banking, food, water, and much more.

An EMP is a major burst of electromagnetic energy. EMPs are considered potentially dangerous to critical infrastructure including the nation’s three electrical grids.

There are two ways we know of that an EMP could damage our infrastructure. One is by a nuclear weapon detonated some 250 miles above the Earth. The other is through a massive solar storm.

Trump wants several federal agencies to coordinate their preparation in assessing the threats EMPs impose. And find ways to prevent their impact.

This Isn’t the First Time

In 1962, the U.S. tested a nuclear bomb 250 miles above the Pacific Ocean. Electronic disturbances occurred some 900 miles away in Hawaii.

Satellites owned by the U.S., the Soviet Union and England were damaged. Telephones went dead and streetlights were blown out.

About 100 years earlier, a solar super-storm occurred that made telegraphs catch on fire. It was called the Carrington Event.

According to Newsweek, if a similar-sized solar storm hit the planet today, it would paralyze the U.S. infrastructure, take down our electrical grid and create an estimated $2 trillion in damage.

HEMP Attacks

The Commission to Assess the Threat from an EMP attack has been warning America since 2001 of the potential risk.

They state that a high-altitude EMP (HEMP) could threaten the survival of both the United States and its allies. This type of attack involves a nuclear detonation miles above the U.S. where EMP effects would be most potent.

A HEMP attack would disrupt electronics such as sensors, communication and protective systems, computers, aircrafts, or any device controlled by electricity. It would bring us back into the 19th century.

The key prominent threats we are facing are Russia, China and North Korea. But new threats are beginning to emerge from Pakistan and Iran as they continue to develop their nuclear programs.

Unstoppable Solar Superstorms

Now, it could be argued that the Department of Defense and other U.S. agencies are one step ahead of terrorists. They might be able to thwart an EMP attack before it occurs.

But if the “attack” comes from the sun, that’s a different story. There’s no stopping the largest and most deadly force in our solar system.

Even just seven years ago, an extreme solar storm tore through Earth’s orbit.

According to NASA, it’s a good thing the coronal mass ejection occurred when it did. One week earlier and Earth would have been in the line of fire.

Fox News Reports Our Death Toll Would Be Staggering

The result of an EMP wouldn’t just mean no phones for a few hours. If enough electric power transformer stations are affected, it would mean no power to millions of people for weeks or even many months.

And when our electric grid fails, it will be like watching America have a heart attack right before your eyes. Because when the heart stops pumping… everything shuts down and the patient flat lines.

“Our death toll would be staggering” reports Fox News. We’re all fine when the power goes out for a few hours and even days. But an extended blackout would be devastating.

Frank Gaffney, founder of the Center for Security Policy predicts, “… should the power go out and stay out for over a year, 9 out of 10 Americans would likely perish.”

Preparation Is the Key

Friends, you and I are not capable of stopping HEMP attacks from Russia, China, Iran or North Korea. We hope and pray that our government is.

But there is one thing you can do to help protect your family.

More and more Americans are taking matters into their own hands and are securing their own solar powered generator.

Solar generators are a smart choice because they create an endless supply of life-saving electricity when you need it most – and without gas, fumes or noise.

You can use it to run kitchen appliances. Power your personal or medical devices. Or light up a room with an LED light string… for weeks at a time.

And if you haven’t had a look yet, we’ve recently added the option of an easy monthly payment plan.

But please know I’m not sure how long we’ll be able to keep that going.
