October 14, 2014—Nature Abhors a Vacuum!

Former Defense Secretary and CIA Director Leon Panetta and other departed senior officials have stated their misgivings about President Obama’s strategy, that, among other things, helped make possible the rise of ISIS. Panetta recently stated: “When we stepped out of Iraq, we created this vacuum.” ISIS is currently filling the space in the Middle East. Will they succeed? Will they be defeated? Contained? Come here? Hmmmmm . . .

October 8, 2014—Protect America from the EMP Threat!

The rise of the Islamic State and its objective of re-establishing an Islamic caliphate committed to destroying Western civilization highlights a threat the U.S. has ignored for decades. The ability to launch nuclear armed ballistic missiles is not beyond its prospective capabilities and exists already from North Korea and possibly soon from Iran. The electromagnetic pulse (EMP) from a single nuclear warhead detonated 100 miles or so over the U.S. could destroy our unhardened electric power grid—leading to the death of several hundred million Americans within the following year. It’s time to counter this threat!

October 1, 2014—Wake Up: ISIS Is Here!

“. . . With access to technology that allows small groups to do great harm, they have embraced a nightmarish vision that would divide the world into adherents and infidels — killing as many innocent civilians as possible, employing the most brutal methods to intimidate people within their communities . . . No grievance justifies these actions. There can be no reasoning — no negotiation — with this brand of evil. The only language understood by killers like this is the language of force . . .” ~President Barak Hussein Obama

September 24, 2014—ISIS . . . Over There?

Fourteen of yesterday’s early morning attacks in Syria focused on ISIS targets. Very important is that another eight Khorasan target areas were attacked by U.S. weapons, reportedly as somewhat of an afterthought, because recent intelligence indicated that these jihadis were on the verge of launching attacks in Europe and/or the U.S. homeland. Are we prepared to counter other “unidentified” homeland attacks?

September 19, 2014—To War or Not To War . . .

“. . . [P]otential allies do not quite know what the U.S. is doing, how long America will fight, and what will happen to U.S. allies when we likely get tired, quit, and leave. For now, most allies are sitting tight and waiting for preemptive, unilateral U.S. action. If we begin defeating the Islamic State, they may eventually join in on the kill; if not, they won’t. That is a terrible way to wage coalition warfare, but we are reaping what we have sown.” ~Victor Davis Hanson

September 12, 2014—ISIS is not Islamic?

“President Obama’s promise “to degrade and ultimately destroy ISIL” may or may not end up causing problems for the Islamic State. Surely however, it further degraded our security by further engaging us in the combination of fantasy and half measures that has earned America a reputation for un-seriousness and opened hunting season on Americans everywhere.” ~Angelo Codevilla

September 4, 2014—9/11 . . . One More Time?

“Our opposition to [ISIS] will continue at home and abroad. It is important that we are clear about the nature of the threat we are facing. It makes no distinction between cultures, countries and religions. There is no way to appease it. The only way to defeat it is to stand firm and to send a very straightforward message: a country like ours will not be cowed by these barbaric killers. If they think that we will weaken in the face of their threats, they are wrong. It will have the opposite effect.” ~ British Prime Minister David Cameron

Sept. 3, 2004 – Secure The Grid Coalition at National Press Club

Yesterday High Frontier Chairman Hank Cooper had the privilege of participating in a distinguished panel of experts at the National Press Club in Washington DC. The topics discussed included our perilous National Security situation on our southern border, especially as it relates to ISIS activity taking place in the Middle East. Also discussed was Homeland Security’s loss of some 6,000 students who have overstayed their student visas and are now unaccounted for.

All of these topics led to the most crucial purpose of this press conference – and that is to secure our national electric grid. Each of these esteemed participants are part of The Secure the Grid Coalition.

August 25, 2014—Wake-up The Dogs Not Barking!

“There is now an increasing likelihood that rogue nations such as North Korea (and before long, most likely, Iran) will soon match Russia and China in that they will have the primary ingredients for an EMP attack: simple ballistic missiles such as SCUDs that could be launched from a freighter near our shores; space launch vehicles able to launch low- earth-orbit satellites; and simple low-yield nuclear weapons that can generate gamma rays and fireballs. In 2004, the Russians told us that their “brain drain” had been helping the North Koreans develop EMP weapons . . .” ~Former CIA Director R. James Woolsey

August 18, 2014—On Organizing Principles . . . Really!

“Great nations need organizing principles, and ‘Don’t do stupid stuff’ is not an organizing principle.” ~Private Citizen Hillary Clinton, The Atlantic, August 10, 2014 . . . “What difference at this point does it make?” Secretary of State Hillary Clinton before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, January 23. 2013. Indeed???
