“It must be remembered that there is nothing more difficult to plan, more difficult of success, nor more dangerous to manage, than the creation of a new system. For the initiator has the enmity of all who would profit by the preservation of the old institutions and merely lukewarm defenders in those who would gain by the new ones.” Niccolò di Bernardo dei Machiavelli in The Prince, 1513.

Our 40th President, Ronald Reagan, was born 105 years ago today. This morning I want to take a trip down memory lane, and share some impressions I have of Ronald Reagan’s effectiveness.
Greetings – I was recently at a meeting, which was attended by several hundred people, where my father gave a progress report on how he and the “secure the grid” team are working diligently to secure our electric grid. Following the meeting, one of my grassroots activist friends came up to me and asked, “Scott, […]
North Korea is reportedly preparing to launch a satellite with the potential of detonating a nuclear weapon a hundred miles or so over the United States — possibly soon to be followed by its strategic ally, Iran. The resulting electromagnetic pulse (EMP) could destroy our unhardened electric power grid — leading to the death of most Americans within the following year. It’s long past time to counter this threat!
“Rich and poor have this in common: The Lord is the Maker of them all. A prudent man sees danger and takes refuge; but the simple keep going and suffer for it. Humility and the fear of the Lord bring wealth and honor.” ~ Proverbs 22: 2-4.
Assuring the survival and assured restart capability of our nuclear power reactors should be a top priority objective of all who seek to counter the existential threat to the electric power grid posed by Cyber or Physical attack or from manmade or natural EMP threats. We are working with Duke Energy, the largest U.S. power company, to conduct a pilot study to demonstrate just such a capability.
“I agree with the intel community that we assess that they [the North Koreans] have the ability, they have the weapons, and they have the ability to miniaturize those weapons, and they have the ability to put them on a rocket that can range the [U.S.] homeland.” ~ Adm. William Gortney, Northcom Commander, responsible for defending the United States from long-range missile attack, in an October 8, 2015 address to the Atlantic Council.
“. . . [T]he entire population of the United States could be at risk. There would be no food. No water. Communications, transportation, industry, business and finance — all of the critical infrastructures that support modern civilization and the lives of the American people would be paralyzed by collapse of the electric power grid. Millions could die. ~ William R. Graham and R. James Woolsey
“Nobody should be surprised by what happened in San Bernardino . . . If it happened right now this afternoon, this evening, tomorrow . . . nobody should be surprised.” ~ Commissioner Bernard Kerik, who headed the New York City’s emergency response forces on 9/11
“For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given; and the government shall be upon his shoulder; and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.” ~ Isaiah 9:6 (KJV) . . . “And the seventh angel sounded; and there were great voices in heaven, saying, The kingdoms of this world are become the kingdoms of our Lord, and of His Christ; and He shall reign for ever and ever.” ~ Revelation 11:15 (KJV)
