May 19, 2015— Mr. President, Fix The EMP Mess!

“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

April 28, 2015—Nuclear Futures: A Time for Choosing?

“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. Should one rely on the framework—before the details are ironed out—it is no longer a question of whether Iran will have nuclear weapons, but when they will have them.” … Herb London, President of the London Center for Policy Research

April 14, 2015 – NORTHCOM Moving to Counter the EMP Threat!

The Pentagon recently announced that Raytheon will receive a $700 million contract to prep the Cheyenne Mountain base in Colorado for the return of US Aerospace Command, built in the 1960s to respond to a Soviet nuclear strike; this new plan is to help counter a possible EMP attack by a rogue nation. This explicit acknowledgement of the EMP threat is a most welcome development. Hopefully, the U.S. “powers that be” will also take complementary steps to assure the survival of the American people in case of such an attack—and here are some hopeful signs this may be possible.

April 7, 2015 – Less than Meets the Eye…

“The Framework Agreement announced on 2 April 2015 is concerning on a number of counts, but in fact merely kicks the can down the road to additional negotiations between the P5+1 and Iran, gifting Iran with more time to complete its drive to deliverable nuclear weapons. . . . The entire world took a step closer to Armageddon this week, which as Bernard Lewis has said, is no deterrent to the apocalyptic Shi’ite regime in Tehran but rather an inducement.” ~ Clare M. Lopez, Former CIA Operations Officer

March 31, 2015 – So… What’s the Big Deal?

“Iran has talented engineers and the necessary financial resources, and its nuclear infrastructure is much larger than what it actually needs. Therefore, a monitoring scheme that is merely ‘good enough’ will not guarantee success in preventing Iran from breaking out and achieving a nuclear weapons capability.” … Olli Heinonen, Former IAEA Deputy Director-General for Safeguards, March 28, 2015

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.
