Column – The Looming Danger of EMP Blackouts in the U.S.

Published 6:43 pm Tuesday, December 12, 2023

Dr. William A. Radasky and Dr. Peter Vincent Pry have articulated a grave warning to the American public through the “EMP Task Force on National and Homeland Security Investigations” report, titled “Blackout Warfare: High-altitude Electromagnetic Pulse (Hemp) Attack On The U.S. Electric Power Grid,” on Aug. 6, 2021. 

The report details an analysis for national security on the damage of an EMP attack on our infrastructure, insinuating that we have not prepared for this at all, and it is critical that we do. These types of attacks would wipe out everything that is powered by electrical components, which is 95% of everything in society. This report got little coverage from lawmakers on both sides of the aisle, and the media pretended like it didn’t exist. 

As Iran led an “attack on at least one device at the Municipal Water Authority of Aliquippa, Pennsylvania” over Thanksgiving holiday, the real threat of a blackout from an EMP, or cyberattacks, is a prevalent danger to our society today and needs to be talked about more so that the general public can prepare themselves; either be through self-sustainability measures, or the municipalities offer government subsidies for either educational preparedness programs on the local level that allow leaders in the community to have a plan for this scenario.

Something needs to be addressed and procured before something happens to our infrastructure that is detrimental to our sovereignty and our children’s lives. Neither Biden nor Trump is going to fix this. This requires American citizens on the local level to get active and understand what is going on in our community. By communicating with your state delegates, you can stress the importance of this issue to further delegation for a preparation program that community leaders can be involved in, draw on, and look to because if the grid ever goes down, having the necessary precautions in place and the public aware will lessen the likely hood of destruction and chaos; especially here in Suffolk where we cherish the small town community vibe. 

Once a program like this takes off, the communication will spread, more people will be aware of the agenda, and a blackout plan can be in effect. As tensions rise globally, the BRICS (Brazil, Russia, India, China, South Africa) nations are deemed to dethrone the dollar and cast America’s economy into the dark. Alliances are being drawn. In August this year, several new countries were admitted into the BRICS bloc: Saudi Arabia, Iran, Ethiopia, Egypt, Argentina and UEA. Something is brewing beyond our borders and the community needs to be prepared for a blackout threat. It makes one wonder why they are building a footpath/trail that connects “Suffolk, Portsmouth, Chesapeake, Norfolk and Virginia Beach” called the “Seaboard Coastline Trail.”
