ELECTRO MAGNETIC PULSE THREATS – why have we done nothing to harden our electrical grid
Severalweeks ago we learned from Mary Fanning and Alan Jones how massive security breaches led to the transfer of Port Canaveral to foreign nationals who threaten the future of our country. This week our guests will be Dr. Peter Pry and Clare Lopez to discuss the very real threat of EMP weapons being used to take down our entire electrical grid and most of our electronic devices that are essential to our hi-tech society.
Dr. Pry is a leading expert on national security/electro magnetic pulse weaponry, has authored 5 books on the threat of EMP vulnerability, and will explain our lack of preparedness to this type of terrorist attack by rogue states such as North Korea and Iran. Clare Lopez is a previous guest to our show and is also expert on EMP weapons, national security, and the Club K containerized weapons systems that are potentially entering the country through our ports; especially through Port Canaveral. This threat is very real and could not have happened without the collusion of our national leadership during the Obama Administration. Many of the international threats we face today are a direct result of intentional actions to ignore national security policies and adopt procedures that are openly opposed to our true national interests. We must harden our electrical grid and important systems against this looming threat. This could be accomplished for a relatively low cost, especially when the consequences of doing nothing are so enormous. Please join us for this very informative program on a subject that very few people truly understand.
