August 15, 2017—Hill Action Items!

The past couple of weeks, I joined several other contributors to The Hill, which delivers the daily news focused on the interest of Capitol Hill, to discuss the implications of North Korea entering the ranks of deliverable nuclear weapons by ballistic missiles, particularly intercontinental ballistic missiles (ICBMs) that can reach cities in the Continental United States. If you visit congressional offices as well as many other offices around Washington, you will find this daily newspaper on their coffee tables. Given several recent The Hill articles, there’s no excuse for our Senators and Representatives not to understand the threat that is here now. Read Full Story

Critical national infrastructure protection “will require public-private cooperation and partnerships – that, in fact, the electric industry must in the future end their efforts to avoid, misrepresent, dismiss, and minimize EMP and its potential existential national consequences, and play a large role in EMP protection, as must several Departments of the government that have to date also avoided addressing EMP intelligently and effectively, including the Department of Homeland Security and the Department of Energy, and begin drawing on the knowledge and experience held within the Department of Defense and the EMP Commission.”… Dr. William R. Graham, Chairman of the EMP Commission Read Full Story

August 1, 2017—A New Day?

Yesterday, Retired Marine General and now former Secretary of Homeland Security John Kelly was sworn in as the White House Chief of Staff, hopefully to demonstrate his well-deserved reputation of bringing order out of chaos to help greater success for President Trump’s agenda. Among his many agenda items, we hope they will address the government’s dysfunctional efforts to deal with the existential electromagnetic pulse (EMP) threat now confronting the nation.

July 5, 2017—Kim’s Celebration on our Fourth!

Conventional wisdom has held that it will be years before North Korea can threaten the United States with a nuclear attack. That judgement is quite wrong as illustrated in yesterday’s early morning hours when North Korea conducted its 13th ballistic missile test this year — this time on a lofted trajectory that, if straightened out, some experts claim could reach Alaska. Actually the threat is even much greater and more eminent than that. Read Full Story

July 4, 2017—Happy Independence Day!

Today, we celebrate the founding of America on July 4, 1776—Independence Day to remember when, for the first time ever, “We the People” declared their right to protect themselves from the encroachments of an over-reaching, intrusive government. That formula grew America into a free people and the world’s sole superpower with a quality of life for hundreds of millions, unmatched by any other nation on earth. But as Benjamin Franklin stated on that first Independence Day, the founders “gave us a Republic if we can keep it.” Read Full Story

June 20, 2017—Space Defense Revival?

“Someday, not too distant; there can come streaking out of somewhere (We won’t be able to hear it, it will come so fast.) some kind of gadget with an explosive so powerful that one projectile will be able to wipe out completely this city of Washington. . . . I think we will meet the attack alright [sic] and, of course, in the air. But I’ll tell you one thing, there won’t be a … pilot in the sky! That attack will be met by machines guided not by human brains, but by devices conjured up by human brains.” ~ General Henry H. Arnold, 1943 Read Full Story
