Newt Gingrich´s Plan to
Stave Off the Apocalypse

National Journal, by Alex Brown

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 3/28/2014 5:32:45 PM

Within a year, nine out of 10 Americans could be dead. And whatever causes the national apocalypse—be it North Korean malice or the whims of the sun—the downfall will ultimately be our own fault. That´s the fear of Newt Gingrich and other members of a high-profile coalition who are convinced that our fragile electrical grid could be wiped out at any moment. Their concern? Electromagnetic pulses, the short bursts of energy—caused by anything from a nuclear blast to a solar flare—that can wreak havoc on electrical systems on a massive scale. And the coalition believes it´s coming soon. "I think we´re running out

Comments:
I´m no Gingrich fan, but I´m glad to see he´s not pontificating from Facebook.

I daresay it would have little affect on rural communities such as the Amish/Mennonites and large areas of the third world that depend on ancient technology to get by. There are communes in this country that uses kerosene,coal oil, and draft animals for their livelihood. If they don´t use electricity anyway, they will be okay. They just need to keep their guns handy in case of urban marauders roaming the countryside.

Our power goes out for days at a time but living on a very rural ranch, we don´t even blink. Whole house generator, wood stove, root cellar, horses, milk cow, greenhouse, meat house. I guess I should feel sorry for town folks, but, I´m fresh out of G-A-S.

The article makes me think that states should take on the task of securing the electric grids in their states and not wait for those paralyzed by their conflicts of interest at the national level to do anything about it.
Those who have generators still need to have fuel to run their generators don´t they? Those who live simply in rural areas still need to replenish their gas and oil. They won´t be much better off than the rest of us.

According to the coalition, protecting the electrical grid would cost only $2 billion, and could be completed in less than five years. Safeguarding all essential infrastructure would come in between $10-20 billion.

Every doomsday-ist has something to sell.

Everyone should read: One Second After

No one would be safe, even if you lived the Amish life, since those in need would take everything you had by force. Those needing medication to survive would run out of drugs.

No, an EMP attack is a death sentence for most Americans.

This is why I could not bring myself to vote for Newt in the primary. Sure, we should try to protect the grid from catastrophic failure, but he´s a bit crackers about it.

It´s difficult for most people to comprehend the fragility of our modern delivery systems . Most of us are only a few days away from a grim existence. It´s no coincidence that the government is intensely interested in studying the prospects of social disintegration. Look what happens in our major cities when a sports team wins a championship. Few people know what actually happened in New Orleans after Katrina, or how many Los Angelenos headed for the hills after the Rodney King looting.

A lot of Y2K in this. When the automatic shutoff trips at the powerhouse because of an EmP, the old man who works nights will walk over and turn it back on.

I also note that there is probably a pile of money to be made peddling solutions. I think we need a UN task force to take 2% of the GDP of all Western nations, and give it to me, and I will solve the problem.

An EMP stops ALL electrical activity. Planes literally fall out of the sky. Your car stops, all electrical input ceases to exist. That means you can´t pump gas for those generators, the stores quickly cease to have any products as there will be no refrigeration nor any way to get products replenished. Yes, your generator may run for awhile, and if you have gas stockpiled, it may run for quite awhile. But sooner rather than later it runs out and there is no more. Hospitals can only function for so long as they are also reliant on generators in case of power failure. Civilization as we know it now, will cease to exist. Whether we are self reliant enough to weather something of this magnitude I don´t know. We are not trained for catastrophic failure like this. We are too reliant on technology and if we are thrown back into something approaching the stone age, we will be children in the wilderness. Yes, those who produce their own food (ranchers and farmers) will fare much better than those of us who rely totally on commercial sources for our subsistence, will be in a world of hurt. My life-long dream of living somewhere where I could produce at least enough to keep us alive food wise, has never come to pass. You can live without electricity, our forefathers did so very well, but you cannot live without food. Most people in this nation seem to not even know where their food comes from. It comes from the Safeway don´t you know.

First, EMP is like a super strong lightning strike. Well-shielded electronics, with short shielded cables (which otherwise act as antennas) and protection devices have a decent chance of survival. High-current devices, like motors, are also more resistant. The military has spent years hardening their equipment. Contrary to the hype, it will not be a total wipeout.

That´s the good news.

However, much of our infrastructure is poorly protected if at all, depends on the internet, and is therefore quite vulnerable. Visit a hospital and look at all those long cables (read: antennas) hooked up to patients, and you can see the vulnerability. Critical infrastructure is also laced with weak concentration points like power substations and communications hubs, that increase vulnerability.

In addition to nuclear devices that can affect broad areas, less "sexy" conventional flux compression generators (FCGs) and virtual cathode oscillators (VIRCATORs) can attack weak spots on a local basis. The latter devices are attractive to terrorists since they are small, constructed from readily obtained materials, and are easy to hide in a van and hard to detect. Consider such a van parked outside a hospital, broadcast studio, police station, etc. All of this is well known, and described on the web.

That´s the bad news.

Use of Faraday cages (a microwave oven or steel file cabinet can work on a small basis), ESD protection devices, and extensive shielding can be effective countermeasures. Common sense can go a long way.

The search is on for two presenters to join Whoopi Goldberg and Rosie O’Donnell on ABC’s daytime chat show, while a backstage battle for control has left Barbara Walters out of the driver’s seat.

Federal employees, like all Americans, are entitled to hold passionate political beliefs. Most executive branch federal employees, however, may not engage in certain political activities, thanks to an anti-conflict of interest principle enshrined in a federal law called the Hatch Act. To wit, President Bush requested the resignation of his GSA administrator in 2008 after the US Office of Special Counsel determined she had violated federal law by participating in a video conference with Karl Rove and sending out partisan letters.

"I certainly hope this is not intentional. But how long does it take a technical company to fix a technical problem? “D´Souza told FOX411. “We´re trying to be patient, but this is making it harder for people to get accurate information about the film."

Seventeen percent of people in the United States say immigration is the nation’s top problem, according to a Gallup poll released Wednesday. That´s up from 5 percent in June, and is the highest number Gallup has registered for immigration since 2006, when 15 percent said it was the nation´s most pressing problem. Gallup’s new survey found immigration is virtually tied with “dissatisfaction with government” as the nation´s top problem. The economy and unemployment rank below immigration and “dissatisfaction with government" as top problems, the new poll found. Only 8 percent now rate healthcare as the top problem, down from 16 percent in January, when

The headlines last week were all about the potential windfall: A second appraisal of works in the Detroit Institute of Arts´ collection had come in and the number was several orders of magnitude larger than the first. The city needs a valuation because the museum´s collection is in play under the current municipal bankruptcy proceeding. Back in December, Christie´s had come in with $454 million to $867 million, that low-high figure the equivalent of an auction "estimate" ranging between a number below which a work won´t sell and another representing its likely maximum hammer price.

Your health care: Obama´s
$18,000 broken promise

How would you feel if someone promised to give you a car, and then reneged on that pledge? That’s how all Americans should feel when it comes to ObamaCare -- because Barack Obama’s failed and discredited campaign promise to lower health insurance premiums has cost the average American family an amount equal to the price of many new cars. During his 2008 campaign, one of then-Senator Obama’s most audacious promises was that his health plan would reduce premiums by $2,500 for the average family. His repeatedly made his pledge on videotape; you can view those promises here. But health insurance premiums

The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) has identified a massive new threat to domestic airline security. No, it’s not ISIS, Al Qaeda, or the Taliban. It’s the dead battery on your smartphone. Last week, TSA announced what it called “enhanced security measures” in which passengers will be required to power up their cell phones before boarding their flight. According to Department of Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson, TSA has “assesse[d] the global threat environment and reevaluate[d] the measures we take to promote aviation security.” Your cell phone is evidently part of a “global threat environment,” and so it must be turned on in order

The Congressional Budget Office’s (CBO) latest report says that although the federal deficit this year is the lowest of the Obama era, in the near future, it is expected to skyrocket to World War II heights. The years between 2009 and 2012 saw the largest recorded federal government deficits since 1946, based on percentage of the economy. And although the White House also reported that the deficit this year is the lowest of the Obama administration, there is little reason for celebration. Currently, the amount of federal debt is exactly 74 percent of the economy, and if measures aren’t taken to reign

CNN chose to describe the recently detained Jose Antonio Vargas, longtime journalist for U.S. publications and legal citizen of the Philippines, as a “symbol of the immigration debate.” The news network aired his documentary, Undocumented, several times. At the heart of Vargas’s viewpoint — and CNN’s decision to refer to him as a symbol, as opposed to, say, a scofflaw — is the notion that it is unfair to deny citizenship to him, considering his circumstances. Vargas came to the United States from the Philippines when he was 12 and didn’t learn he was in the country illegally until he was

“Trust” is for Con Men: The reaction to the border chaos in Texas has accomplished one thing: It has exploded the lie at the heart of current “comprehensive” immigration reform plans. The basic structure of those plans is a swap of a) near-immediate legalization for b) increased border security in the future. The appealing idea is to let current illegals stay while taking the steps necessary to prevent further waves. The lie is the assumption that, once current illegals get their legalization, pro-immigrant activists in both parties will continue to support the second half of the bargain, the increased security.
