January 17, 2015- Hank Cooper Speaks at Sold Out SC Tea Party Convention in Myrtle Beach
High Frontier Chairman Hank Cooper spoke at the South Carolina Tea Party Convention, which was held in Myrtle Beach on Martin Luther King Day weekend. Joining Cooper was former Deputy Adjutant General of the South Carolina National Guard Les Isner.
Cooper discussed the existing threats to the U.S. electric grid, but also discussed South Carolina’s unique position in defending the nation as a result of the 263rd Army Air and Missile Defense Command, which is located in Anderson, SC. Also discussed was South Carolina’s unique position of receiving close to 60 % of its’ energy from its’ four existing nuclear power plants and how they, along with the two newly proposed nuclear power plants, could put South Carolina in the position to lead the way in restoring a nation-wide grid failure, provided South Carolina can secure the nuclear power plants cooling systems.
