Congresswoman: ?100% Chance of a Severe Geo-Magnetic Event Capable of Crippling Our Electric Grid?

Via shtfplan.com

With the sun?s solar cycle in its peak stage this year and militaries around the world rapidly developing super electro-magnetic pulse (EMP) weapons, the threat of a catastrophic event that disables the U.S. power grid has never been greater.

In 2003 a solar flare emitted by the sun was the most powerful in recorded observational history, measuring in at levels so high that had it hit earth it would have likely disabled everything from the internet and mobile phones, to water utility plants and the whole of the U.S. electricity infrastructure. And, earlier this year in another near-miss, experts claimed the world escaped another large-scale EMP catastrophe.

While an outlier, the real possibility of an EMP event ? be it natural or man made ? is more probable than most people think:

 We are only one act of madness away from a social cataclysm unlike anything our country has ever known.
-Congressman Trent Franks (R-AZ), Senior Member House Armed Service Committee


EMP is one of the small number of threats that could hold at risk the continued existence of U.S. civil society.
-Dr. Robert Hermann, Commissioner US Congress EMP Commission


Just one violent active region on the sun can cause continent-wide, perhaps even planetary-scale impacts to our critical infrastructure.
-John Kappenman, Principal Investigator US Congress EMP Commission


The Likelihood of a severe geo-magnetic event capable of crippling our electric grid is 100%.
-Congresswoman Yvette Clarke (D-NY), Senior Member House Homeland Security Committee

The fall-out from a grid-down scenario would be absolutely devastating, as noted by a spokesman for the Center for Security Policy who recently responded to the potential for EMP capable weapons being deployed over the United States:

And experts forecast if such an attack were a success, it effectively could throw the U.S. back into an age of agriculture.

?Within a year of that attack, nine out of 10 Americans would be dead, because we can?t support a population of the present size in urban centers and the like without electricity,? said Frank Gaffney, president of the Center for Security Policy.

NASA has already begun implementing plans to deal with large scale power failurefrom a space weather anomaly, and NASA head Charles Bolden recently issued a video alert through the NASA Headquarters of Emergency Operations in which he claimed he had ?been made aware of some things? that prompted him to urge NASA employees and their families to prepare for an event that could come like 9/11.

This was recently echoed by outgoing DHS Secretary Janet Napolitano, who has said that a cyber attack or natural disaster on the U.S. power grid the likes of which we have never seen is imminent.

Following Napolitano?s comments it was revealed that the United States, Canada, Mexico and hundreds of private companies were planning a massive power grid down drill to simulate what an EMP attack or solar flare might look like.

The disaster drill is being described as a crisis practice unlike anything the real power grid has ever experienced. The GridEX II drill Nov. 13-14 will focus primarily on how governments will react if the electrical grid fails and, for instance, the food supply chain collapses.

As we saw in limited grid-down scenarios like those following Hurricane Katrina and Hurricane Sandy, when the grid goes down you better be ready. Within 72 hours of such an event taking place the supply chain infrastructure in affected regions will undoubtedly collapse. This is a certainty, as evidenced by what we played out within a few days of Hurricane Sandy hitting the east coast last year:

SHOCK: 72 Hours After Grid-Down: Starvation, Supply Shortages, Food Lines, No Clean Water, No Gas, Transportation Standstill

For tens of thousands of east coast residents that worst case scenario is now playing out in real-time. No longer are images of starving people waiting for government handouts restricted to just the third-world.

In the midst of crisis, once civilized societies will very rapidly descend into chaos when essential infrastructure systems collapse.

Though the National Guard was deployed before the storm even hit, there is simply no way for the government to coordinate a response requiring millions of servings of food, water and medical supplies

Many east coast residents who failed to evacuate or prepare reserve supplies ahead of the storm are being forced to fend for themselves.

Frustration and anger have taken hold, as residents have no means of acquiring food or gas and thousands of trucks across the region remain stuck in limbo.

Despite our modern infrastructure and technological advancements, we are one catastrophe away from being thrown back into the stone age.

If the grid goes down the gas stops pumping, America?s trucks stop running, and grocery store shelves stop getting stocked.

Within three days of that all hell breaks loose.

We?re talking about nothing short of a total breakdown in law & order and tens of millions of people scavenging, looting and killing for food.

The threat is as real as it gets, but you can insulate yourself should it come to pass if you take the steps to prepare now.

It starts with getting prepared for a two week power outage, and then focusing your efforts on more long-term plans that can protect you against the possibility of EMP, solar flare, and a host of other potential wide-scale disasters.

Former Congressman Roscoe Bartlett issued what is probably the most stark warning about the U.S. power grid, which he says is not only outdated, but incapable of being repaired in a timely manner should elements of it be paralyzed by an EMP weapon of geo-magnetic storm:

We could have events in the future where the power grid will go down and it?s not, in any reasonable time, coming back up. For instance, if when the power grid went down some of our large transformers were destroyed, damaged beyond use, we don?t make any of those in this country. They?re made overseas and you order one and 18 months to two years later they will deliver it. Our power grid is very vulnerable. It?s very much on edge. Our military knows that.


There are a number of events that could create a situation in the cities where civil unrest would be a very high probability.

I think that those who can, and those who understand, need to take advantage of the opportunity when these winds of strife are not blowing to move their families out of the city.

    This was also just posted under the article on “The Next Event,” but since it also goes along with this article on the power grids possibly going down soon I thought I’d post it here once again too so more people will be able to read of my wife’s important prophetic dreams she just had that back all of this up! Here goes:
    My wife just recently had several dreams and prophetic experiences which back up the article on ?The Next Event ? Destruction on a Massive Scale.? Jim Bakker, (The famous preacher) ?had the SAME VISION! ?Of the possibility of a nuke going off soon in a major city. He just emailed us asking permission to use my wife?s prophetic dreams on one of his shows as they parallel his very closely. We, of course, agreed to allow him to do this. I had sent them to him when she received them. They are going to let us know when the show will air soon. So here in her own words are my wife?s revelations:
    Linda speaking:
    I find this article quite eye opening because I have been seeking the Lord as to ?why? He gave me a series of dreams & experiences in a period of about 7-8 days in the middle/end of Aug. The first event happened as I was calmly walking through the house. I suddenly felt the concussion of an explosion and the words formed in my amazed mind ?Explosion?. (One of the prophetic words Jim Bakker was given for this year was ?EXPLOSIONS!?) ?A few days later I was sleeping soundly. In a vivid dream I saw red-orange ball and then suddenly there was an explosion and I could feel the concussion of an explosion. It was 6 a.m. When I went into the kitchen, my husband, John was at the computer and there on the screen was the red-orange ball I had seen, and Edward Snowden beside it on a You Tube video that John was watching. The video was about huge solar activity from the Sun possibly coming in September that might cause power outages. Then the second dream was a picture of three fat round chimney?s that narrowed at the top like a bottle. I thought it was a factory. Inside the chimneys were black corrosion in the fatter part but jagged and also growing into the bottle-neck. The impression I was given was that this could explode at any time. My husband let me know that this is what a nuclear plant looks like; not like a normal factory which has narrow chimneys. The interpretation John gave was that it could be a nuclear power plant that explodes in a major city soon. The fourth event was a dream and I could see and hear quietly softly bubbling water. I woke up from a sound sleep and I could still hear the water bubbling for about 40 seconds after I awoke and was just amazed! I again went to the computer and there was an article on the screen about the threat of biological agents or chemicals being put in the water supply. I took the dream to mean we all need to have availability to clean water and store it in some way. Perhaps the most amazing thing that confirmed these things came through my little Grandson on a drive with his mother and I. He is very intelligent and almost 4. I had not told my daughter yet about the dreams and explosions, so there was no way he could have heard me talk about any of this. Out of the back seat came a little voice saying, ?I had a dweam!? ?There was an EXPLOSION!? I can?t remember exactly what he said after that, but it may have been something to the effect of, ?AND ALL THE PEOPLE GONE!? His mother and I were shocked. I said nothing then but I told her a few days later about my dreams and experiences. I have been amazed that God gave me these things. This article above on ?The Next Thing ? Destruction on a Massive Scale,? seems to be confirming these dreams and experiences which I was given from the Lord. (John again: The interpretation or impression of these dreams as I see it goes together like this: There may be an explosion soon in a major city from a nuclear reactor going down due to an EMP pulse from the Sun and the giant solar flares we are experiencing. If the power goes out it may cause the plant to shut down and the water cooling system to fail just like in Fukoshima. It also would cause the water plants that supply tap water to people?s houses to fail, and no water may come out of the taps for quite a while! So folks would be wise to begin a good water storage plan.) Then, to my stunned amazement, I was reading through A.W. Trenholm?s new book, ?Journey to Gragau,? and in it, it speaks of ?the disciples of death? in hell, being very excited about their next ?project? -?OF A NUCLEAR POWER PLANT EXPLODING IN A MAJOR CITY!? I was just shocked, and began to send out this information to everyone I know. I hope End Time Info will allow this huge message here as it all flows together so incredibly and goes along with Joe Candell?s article above on ?The Next Event,? and may be indeed the next major thing to come on the prophetic, end time timeline! ?Incidentally, the book Earthshaker has been completely redone and updated even further, and is now available in print from WestBow Press, a division of Thomas Nelson Bible Co. It can be ordered from them at our website: http://www.earthshaker.co (not .com) ?or from Amazon.com, Barnes & Noble.com, or Christianbook.com, under ?Earthshaker by John Benjamin,? or : ?Earthshaker-The Coming Global Destruction.? It is a totally brand new book with many brand new details than the original version which is posted on the homepage of End Time Info here, under the icon with the asteroid hitting the earth and titled, ?Earthshaker -Updated.? Now it?s updated even more with MUCH more valuable information, and is quite new and different than the original. As a miracle and a sign to us from the Lord that He was with us in the writing and publishing of this new version of the book, the Lord had the very illustration of John 3:16 printed RIGHT ON PAGE 316 ! We had no idea what the page numbers would be when the final published manuscript was done! This was an absolutely amazing sign from the Lord that He is indeed with us in the printing and publishing of this new version. You can order it in Hardback form, Paperback, or the new and much less costly e-Book form from any of these sites, or from any major bookstore. Hope you can check it out as so much that has been predicted in it has now come to pass, and there is so much more at hand. God bless you all and thank you, -John & Linda Benjamin

    1. From John Benjamin again: I just thought I’d mention that in my explanation above of my wife’s dreams, I mention the possibility of solar flares causing a giant EMP pulse that might knock out the power and cause a nuclear reactor to go down and shut down the water plants as well as everything else. I just thought that I would add that there are major “powers that be” that would love to use the solar flares (even though September has been relatively quiet compared to other months now on the solar storms…) –that they might take advantage of an eruption of solar flares sometime in the near future as a COVER FOR THEIR OWN EMP PULSED ATTACK which they would carry out at the same time, in secret, so they could blame it on the Sun! This is also how they carry out “false flag attacks.” They love to have a “cover” for them. Many would point to Timothy McVey and the truck bomb in Oklahoma City, as well as the planes hitting the towers in 9/11 — that these things were merely “covers” for the other explosions set off by well placed charges by secret black ops people. If this is true, which I believe personally, then these people are without conscience and will do ANYTHING to accomplish their goals! I just thought I’d throw this information in here at this point, because of the talk of “false flag attacks.” This may be indeed what they have planned to push their agenda forward into high gear so fast that no one can stop them! As has been mentioned above, normal people are waking up to their shenanigans and all the stunts they’ve pulled before to drag people into senseless wars to bring forth their own agenda! They are certainly not beyond doing this again! And has been also pointed out, each event must upstage the last one in magnitude. THIS ONE IS GOING TO HAVE TO BE SOMETHING REALLY BIG to out do 9/11 !

  2. There was a very true to life novel written on that very subject “one second after by William R. Fortschen that predicts how life would be forever disrupted after an EMP.
