New EMP fear: Missile attack
over defenseless U.S. southern
border, killing 90%

Washington Examiner, by Paul Bedard

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 7/31/2014 8:23:50 PM

A former Clinton-era CIA director is raising new concerns that Iran or North Korea will send U.S. civilization “to a cold, dark halt” by firing a nuke over America’s southern border, which is largely absent of missile defenses. R. James Woolsey said that the two rogue nations would copy the Russians, which launches satellites in an unusual trajectory that doesn’t send their gear over the northern border — the direction the Air Force anticipates a missile attack from. Woolsey is one of the nation’s leaders pushing Congress to defend against so-called electromagnetic pulse attacks. He and other government advisors fear Iran or

You know, if that happened, without medication I would be dead in a couple of months anyway. I cant fight off the marauders that will take my food, so what am I supposed to do? Worry? Ha! The government will do nothing to protect us by hardening the electrical grid or put up any sort of missile defense. Bah!

Of all the horror scenarios out there, this is the ONE that really could drive me to distraction if I let it.

I´m so crazy that sometimes when I´m alone I start going thru the steps I´ll take if it happens. Like I could actually do anything!! All I´ll try to do is get to my family -- walking if the vehicles do go down.

In my scenario, I figure I can almost make it before most people even figure out what happened.

I´ve told my daughter, if the lights and communication goes out and car won´t start, run don´t walk to get kids from school!

Of course,in my scenario, I´m always home never far away! I can´t handle that much fear!! LOL

A chain is only as strong as it´s weakest link. The beltway pols aren´t concerned about securing the borders. -No good can come from 0bama´s, ´´change,´´ regarding national security. Yet, Pres. Reagan demonstrated graphically that peace through strength is THE way to go.

Woolsey isnn´t the only person talking about this.....high, retired military personnel are warning about this type of scenario.

This is the reason why naval forces are not in port and ´drilling´ off shore on East and West Coast. The Gulf Coast is not so well protected.

At the risk of being accused of spamming, I´ll repeat the comment I wrote the last time I saw a story here about EMP:

It´s been my experience that managers and government officials don´t believe something can happen that hasn´t happened before. If we want progress on this issue (and many others!), the best thing that could happen would be for Washington DC to be EMP´ed.

FTA: "Woolsey has been urging Washington to consider a $2 billion program to protect the nation’s electrical grid from EMP, which can also come from a solar blast."

Let me guess. Woolsey has friends in the EMP hardening business, and would like to rake in a fortune.

How about sealing the borders against illegal aliens; crack down on the violent street gangs that originate there, contain the flow of deadly diseases they bring. Start enforcing heavy sentences against "knockout game" attackers and other street attackers. Do something about the fools who drive while playing with their cell phones. Stop all the "necessarily skyrocketing" prices of everything so people can afford healthier foods, and perhaps the occasional trip to the doctor as needed.

President Obama next week will hit the road to receive updates on bombings against the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria and efforts to contain the Ebola virus in Africa. White House press secretary Josh Earnest Friday said Obama would travel to Atlanta Tuesday for a briefing from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention on both Ebola and a respiratory virus in the Midwest. The president on Wednesday will conduct a meeting with U.S. Central Command in Tampa, Fla., to review the administration’s efforts to eliminate the Islamic State.

PBS´s Tavis Smiley shamelessly invoked Dr. Martin Luther King on Thursday´s CNN Tonight, as he commented on the ongoing controversy surrounding the shooting of Michael Brown: "It underscores that Martin [Luther] King was right about what he called the ´triple threat´ almost 50 years ago....He said what´s threatening our very democracy is what he called the triple threat of racism, poverty, and militarism. What we saw in Ferguson was racism, poverty and militarism."

In a recent interview with Fox 25 TV in Oklahoma City, Senator Jim Inhofe, the ranking GOP member of the Senate Armed Services Committee, worries that the terror consortium that goes by the name of the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) is developing a megabomb to blow up an American city. “We’re in the most dangerous position we’ve ever been in as a nation,” he warns; ISIS is “rapidly developing a method of blowing up a major U.S. city, and people just can’t believe that it’s happening.” What kind of megabomb that might be, its precise components, and how

Bill Donohue, president of the Catholic League for Religious and Civil Rights, said he will not march in the 2015 St. Patrick’s Day Parade in New York City because he was repeatedly misled by parade committee officials that a pro-life group would be allowed to march, along with a pro-gay contingent, as part of an alleged rules change agreement. “My reasons for withdrawing from the parade have nothing to do with Cardinal Dolan or with gays,” said Donohue in a Sept. 11 statement. “It has to do with being betrayed by the parade committee.

In early June 1964, a group of Republican governors sought to wrestle control of their party from Barry Goldwater, the Arizona conservative who was about to lead the GOP to one of the most crushing defeats in its history. The governors saw a disaster in the making, and sought a moderate candidate who could capture the imaginations of grassroots Republicans—but also beat President Lyndon Johnson in the general election. Led by Ohio’s James Rhodes—the Republican Governors Association was meeting in Cleveland, and Rhodes was a legendary vote counter—the group included Pennsylvania’s William Scranton and later New York’s Nelson Rockefeller.

As he laid out his strategy to combat the Islamic State in both Iraq and Syria, President Obama rejected the “best military advice” of his top military commander in the Middle East. Quoting two U.S. military officials, the Washington Post reported on Wednesday that Army Gen. Lloyd Austin, commander of U.S. Central Command (CENTCOM), said “that his best military advice was to send a modest contingent of American troops, principally Special Operations forces, to advise and assist Iraqi army units in fighting the militants.” Austin’s recommendation was taken to the White House by the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, Gen.

MANCHESTER, New Hampshire — In front of a boisterous pub crowd of young voters here, Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) ripped into President Obama over executive overreach and even vowed to repeal “all previous executive orders” in one of his first acts as president, should he run. Paul’s comments came to the New Hampshire chapter of Generation Opportunity, a national grassroots conservative group with a libertarian appeal with thousands of young liberty-minded activists nationwide engaged through it. Paul focused much of his remarks on executive overreach by President Barack Obama, saving some of his most interesting points for a question-and-answer session

President Obama said there is a “silver lining” in the fight against the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria, arguing that Middle Eastern nations could use the opportunity to build a lasting anti-terror coalition. "We´re going to be able to build the kind of coalition that allows us to lead but also isn´t entirely dependent on what we do," Obama told a group of Democratic donors at a fundraiser in Baltimore. Arab nations needed to "snuff out" that type of "Islamic extremism," he added. The president said he was confident that the U.S. would be able to put together an international coalition

President Obama in his ISIS speech did his best to convince the American people that things are under control, that he will pursue a coalition with other nations to degrade and ultimately destroy ISIS and that he will do it only through air strikes. (Snip) When Obama declared he had no strategy yet on ISIS a few weeks ago he was perceived as a weak and indecisive leader, but is that all the reason for his reluctance to fight ISIS? Or are there other, hidden reasons why Obama does not want to destroy ISIS? Reluctance and refusal to go to war,

Qua speech, Barack Obama’s address Wednesday on the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria was surprisingly terrible: a disorganized mess, insincere and unconvincing. To appreciate just how bad and bizarre it was, compare the president’s speech announcing a new air campaign in Iraq and Syria to Dwight Eisenhower’s 1958 statement on his decision to intervene in Lebanon with 14,000—14,000!—troops. The statement contains no chest-thumping about America’s leadership in science and medicine. No pivot to the auto industry and medical research. Eisenhower simply explained what had been done, and why.

Berlin - President Obama´s declaration of war against the terrorist group known as the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria marks a decisive break in the American constitutional tradition. Nothing attempted by his predecessor, George W. Bush, remotely compares in imperial hubris. Mr. Bush gained explicit congressional consent for his invasions (Snip) Mr. Obama may rightly be frustrated by gridlock in Washington, but his assault on the rule of law is a devastating setback for our constitutional order.

SAN DIEGO — African-American elementary students in California were chronically truant at nearly four times the rate of all students during the last school year, according to a state report released Friday. The report by the California Attorney General´s office is the first time the data has been broken down according to race and income levels. Officials say such data is needed to address the problem. Poverty and suspensions are contributing factors. Overall, more than 250,000 elementary school students missed 10 percent or more of the 2013-2014 school year or roughly 18 or more school days.

Check your hygiene privilege. Cabbies who smell badly are probably just oppressed folks who came directly from their terrorist training camp to the airport and didn’t have time to change. Body odour is among 52 criteria that officials at San Diego International Airport use to judge taxi drivers. Cabbies say that smacks of prejudice and discrimination. It does discriminate between cabbies who smell like an open sewer and those who don’t. It further prejudges what a good smell is.
