Did Barack Obama Set America Up For The ‘Kill-Shot’? Expert Warns Obama-Holdovers Are Working Hand-In-Glove With The Electric Power Industry AGAINST Protecting Our Electrical Grid From A Catastrophic EMP Or Cyber Attack

(ANP: For those who may have missed it, Dr. Peter Pry joins the Hagmann Report in the 1st video below.)

The Heritage Foundation commendably warns on April 4, 2018, in “The Danger of EMP Requires Innovative and Strategic Action,” that natural and manmade electromagnetic pulse (EMP) could blackout electric grids catastrophically. Therefore, EMP deserves high-priority from the White House, Congress, and electric power industry.

Unfortunately, as a life-long admirer of Heritage Foundation’s usually excellent work, it’s my sad duty to warn this report falls short, often straying far from the Congressional EMP Commission’s authoritative findings. Heritage gives equal or greater weight to junk science studies by the electric power industry grossly underestimating EMP threats.

The authors do not appear to understand the entire purpose of congressional commissions, like the EMP Commission, is not just to provide another opinion, but to give the best answers science can provide for public policy purposes.

The 2004 and 2008 EMP Commission reports are still the best analysis of the threat. Their recommendations should be the basis for public policy.

Twelve new EMP Commission reports currently are undergoing security classification review by the Department of Defense. These reaffirm the 2004 and 2008 EMP Commission findings about EMP threat severity. They debunk propaganda “studies” by the electric power industry — North American Electric Reliability Corporation (NERC), Electric Power Research Institute (EPRI), Edison Electric Institute (EEI) and others — that, through incompetence or dishonesty, obfuscate EMP severity.

The new EMP Commission reports reaffirm that natural and nuclear EMP are existential threats and make additional recommendations. For a preview, see EMP Commission Chairman Dr. William Graham’s Oct. 12, 2017 testimony, “North Korea Nuclear EMP Attack: An Existential Threat,” to the U.S. House Homeland Security Committee, Subcommittee on Oversight.

The biggest hole in the Heritage EMP report is that it parrots Obama-holdovers still embedded in the Department of Energy (DOE) and Department of Homeland Security (DHS) who are working hand-in-glove with the electric power industry against protecting the national electric grid from EMP immediately.

They argue protecting the grid and other critical infrastructures from EMP is premature.

Allegedly, the EMP threat is not yet well enough understood. Untrue.

The EMP Commission had access to classified data (unlike NERC, EPRI, EEI) and comprised the foremost experts in the Free World. The Commission performed experiments on EMP simulators and other analysis proving the necessity for hardening the grid — right now.

Common sense alone, the demonstrated fragility of the electric grid — where small-scale failures almost routinely cascade into major blackouts, including during hurricanes and heatwaves — should be sufficient for everyman to know the grid cannot survive an EMP.

The Heritage report is endorsing the Obama administration’s policy of endlessly studying EMP as an excuse to do nothing about protecting the grid. Anti-nuclear Obama-holdovers, DOE’s national labs looking for money, and the electric power industry are all happy to use EMP as a cash cow to support endless studies that serve their peculiar ideological and institutional interests — at the expense of American national security.

    We are just finding out what that low life half-breed alien did to the U.S. while it was in office. All I ask is ‘please God strike that POS dead’ for doing what it and its cross dressing whore did to the country.
