While Rome Burns & The American Government Slept
While Rome Burns & Most Of America Sleeps:
This morning while sucking down my daily dose of brain function juice (coffee) I was reading the headlines and my e-mail when I received a message from my friend Lisa “The Survival Mom” about the Senate shooting down the Grid Safety Act or H.R 5026.
I had to choke on my coffee. Why you may ask?
EMP can be a naturally occurring phenomenon that is caused by solar storms of many sizes, the worst being a CME or “coronal mass ejection”.
The effects then were basically fried (as in burnt to the ground) telegraph wires and not much else. Oh well, that’s good right Oby Wan? No Grasshopper that’s still bad.
The reason that’s still bad is because if we were to have EMP now of the size of the one in 1859, we would be pushed back about 100 years in an instant.
Everything that relies on microchips and computers would fail, modern cars (with computers) ATM’s, all electronic banking records and transactions wiped clean in literally one second while most people on the ground would be none the wiser.
Cell phones, airplanes, water treatment facilities, refrigeration, gas station pumps, oil refineries, ships that bring oil, farm tractors (newer ones anyway) that utilize computers could no longer work farms and on and on and on.
Don’t believe me? The guys at NASA say the same thing and have been warning the diplo-dunks in DC about this very problem to no obvious avail.
The second and more sinister form of EMP is man made or a “TERRORIST” type EMP that can be caused by a missile fired above the center of the country from a cargo vessel causing a cascading grid failure of the entire nation resulting in all of the same failures mentioned above.
Club K Video: At last check Al-Qaida owned over 100 cargo vessels.
This is not something we as a nation or people could recover from quickly, months or most likley even years could be required to restore electric power to the entire nation due to the fact we no longer manufacture large electrical transformers in this country.
I highly recommend reading the book “One Second After” by Bill Forstchen on this very subject. It will give you a reality gut check on the havoc this would create.
It ain’t gonna be pretty!
What does any of this have to do with my morning coffee & Lisa you may ask? Remember her? Well Grasshopper , it has everything to do with what Lisa mentioned to me above about HR 5026 and how it was dumped for a clean energy bill instead.
By the way, I was informed that my illustrious representatives are NOT hard at work on these problems because they are on “recess.” Sound childish? Consider the source!
HR 5026 would have put electric grid protective measures in place to prevent all of the failures mentioned above.
Instead they opted not to protect the energy grid we currently have but opted for clean energy bill instead. I guess they were right, NO energy is ultimately the cleanest form energy there is, right?
Our business name is Survival Solar Systems, and we do use solar, however we also use diesel generators, batteries and are adding small wind turbines.
We are also looking into wood-gas to run a generator to recharge our battery bank, (watch for a coming podcast on that topic.)
Lesson is, don’t put all of your energy dollars in one basket. Redundancy is key when it comes to energy.
What does all of this have to do with Rome burning and people snoozing?
Well how many even know what EMP is or the effects that it could have on modern society? Not many.
The Tea Parties are great, but we must asses our enemy and realize these diplo-dunks are smarter than they look.
They are keeping you busy hoping and praying for a change in November which I wholeheartedly support, however while you are focused on that very change, “THEY” (The Infamous They) seem to be doing all they can to destroy our ability to prepare or defend against any of these impending catastrophes.
And many impending catastrophes they are. Weather It be financial, EMP, Gun Rights, Food Safety Act HR 875 (which makes it illegal to have a garden) and vitamins are declared toxic under Codex Alimentarius in this bill or a form of it, they have us on the ropes and they want to knock us out.
Most of America is awake on the political front, which is a GOOD thing but very asleep in any real sense of knowing what is ongoing behind the political curtain.
Don’t allow all of your time to be consumed with endless calling and e-mailing of your representatives, In my humble opinion, your time may be far better spent in prepping for all of the above calamities to the extent that you can.
As you progress in getting off the grid and out of the system you will begin to feel a peace of knowing you no longer contribute to the machine that wants nothing more than to control every aspect of your life and the lives of your family.
In doing so you can actually grasp the ever fleeting freedom that those still reliant on the grid and the financial system will never know until it’s ultimately removed from them.
Something to ponder, would you rather work your butt off now in preparation for you and your family or surrender to the machine as a slave in a work camp for a cold hard bed and a crumb of gubment cheese?
Now that we’ve had our daily dose of happy, have a nice day!
