To counter increasingly recognized threats, we should return to President Ronald Reagan’s vision in his March 23, 1983 speech that launched the Strategic Defense Initiative (SDI). The “powers that be” should revive technology programs aimed at developing space-based defenses, the most cost-effective way to defend against a full gamut of ballistic missile threats, including those that pose an existential electromagnetic pulse (EMP) threat.
“I know of no safe depository of the ultimate powers of the society but the people themselves; and if we think them not enlightened enough to exercise their control with a wholesome discretion, the remedy is not to take it from them but to inform their discretion.” … Thomas Jefferson

Duncan, as a Member of the House Committee on Homeland Security and the Electromagnetic Pulse (EMP) Caucus, Rep. Duncan hopes to bring more attention to this very serious issue and to improve grid security, including co-sponsoring legislation to provide hardware solutions to protect the grid against EMP. As he observed, “It is vital to our national security that the United States homeland does not remain vulnerable to an EMP attack.”
The March 14th South Carolina National Security Summit will focus on what local and state authorities, first responders and citizens can do to help defeat four existential threats the Federal authorities are failing to counter effectively: Immigration, Global jihad, Natural and manmade threats to our electric grid and The hollowing out of our national defense. Y’all come!
In seeking to protect Israel from an existential Iranian threat, Prime Minister Netanyahu confronts problematic facts and key uncertainties. It will be interesting to hear how he deals with them in today’s address to Congress and all Americans—who also face an existential threat from Iran, whether they know it or not.
If the electric power grid fails for an extended period because of a natural or manmade electromagnetic pulse (EMP)—or from other threats such as physical or cyber attacks, the nation’s nuclear power plants are both: 1) A serious additional hazard to all Americans if not protected—and alternatively, 2) If they are protected, an important aid for recovering the electric grid.
“Regardless of intelligence uncertainties and unknowns about Iran’s nuclear weapons and missile programs, we know enough now to make a prudent judgment that Iran should be regarded by national security decision makers as a nuclear missile state capable of posing an existential threat to the United States and its allies.” ~ “Experts: Iran Now a Nuclear-Ready State, Missiles Capable of Hitting US,” William R.
