EMP – The One Second War

Mar 10, 2023 | Electrical Grid, EMP, National Security, Uncategorized

EMP stands for electromagnetic pulse. Electromagnetic pulse weapons are created by launching a ballistic missile 200 miles up into the Earth’s atmosphere and detonating one to three small nuclear warheads over the east, western, and central United States, which sets up an electrostatic discharge in the atmosphere.

The technical term is the Compton Effect. When the discharge comes down, it hits the Earth’s surface, feeds through all of the millions of miles of wiring, acts as antennas, and shorts the system out. In other words, 1 second after the weapons are detonated, our electrical grid goes down, and just for 30 seconds more, you lose your electricity, the fundamental building block of our society.

William R. Forstchen, Ph.D. and author of One Second After, the first book in a trilogy, joined John and discussed his books plus how an EMP strike would affect America.

Two congressional studies commissioned some years ago came to the same conclusion. 90% of all Americans will be dead a year after an EMP attack.

About three months before the end of President Trump’s term, the Trump administration mandated the various departments, DoD, all the different initial departments, CIA, et cetera, to comprehensively examine what we must do to prepare for an EMP. They were to report about three months after the inauguration of what would be done, and then they would move for legislative action to start preparing this society for what could be a bad day. The current administration killed that on day one with an executive order.

From your refrigerator to the trains coming in, the average town only has about 20 days of food on hand.
