“America is not prepared to be without water, electricity, telephones, computer networks, heating, air conditioning, transportation (cars, subways, buses, airplanes), and banking. All the benefits of our just-in-time economy would come to a deadly halt, including the production of petroleum products, clothing, groceries and medicine. Think about cities without electricity to pump water to their residents.” ~ Letter to President Obama from Americans concerned about the America created by a manmade or natural EMP event

“While no one in the Obama administration will say it, and Hillary Clinton will not admit it, Iran’s leaders were eager for the P5+1 discussions. They know President Obama and other world leaders are so eager for a deal that they would be able to secure approval of nuclear weapons and sanctions relief at the same time.

Duncan, as a Member of the House Committee on Homeland Security and the Electromagnetic Pulse (EMP) Caucus, Rep.

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.

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.
