The title is bold, the conclusions are frightening. However, there is truth behind the statement and the information comes from four sources and the information is relatively recent.
This source communicates with me on a semi-regular basis. I often know the condition of his plant and who is visiting and what the concerns are. I have had dialogue with this person since 2013.
Hello Dave how are you? I just wanted to let you know that Palo Verde Unit 2 tripped last night, which means it went from 100% power to 0% power. Not especially news worthy, except U-3 tripped last week. And U-1 tripped the week before. So all three units have tripped within two weeks. This is very bizarre because these units will normally run “breaker to breaker” with NO issues at all. They normally run 18 months straight with no problem.
There is actually another source at the same plant saying much of the same. Although this source did not indicate this, I think these problems he described are drills. The reasons behind this will be made clear.
Source number two has been communicating with me for 3 years. I know when the DHS visits and when NERC runs a disaster drill at the plant he is stationed at. He does not trust the powers that be connected to the government.
I know it has been awhile, but I wanted to update you on what’s going on ____Nuclear Power Plant (facility name withheld by request). We had a DHS inspection, along with FEMA presence, along with NERC, almost 2 weeks ago. The premise of the inspection was to determine how long we could continue to cool the rods in case of a total lack of power. At our facility, the answer is exactly 10 days and then we go into a catastrophic melt down without outside assistance. I had some interaction with DHS and I can tell you that they are worried and the results scared the hell out of them. Dave, I believe we are going to have a grid down scenario and DHS knows it. I cannot offer substantial proof but if you would have been with us, you would think the same thing. People here are scared shitless. I had a discussion about bugging out with a colleague and my wife, and I mean leaving the entire area. However, if we wait too long, the traffic grid lock would keep us in the city.
I remember when you wrote about Grid Ex II, do you think this is going to be a reality as you suggest it would? This would explain much of what I know.
I know the names of both men and the facilities that they work at. They are not joking. I have had numerous conversations with them over the past three years when I first wrote about the threat of an EMP.
On Sunday night’s show, Gary Haevin, the producer of Amerigedon joined me in the second hour of the show. Gary Haevin is not just a movie producer. He is personal friends with the Governor and texas and with Senator Rand Paul. I know Gary well enough to know he does not say things for effect. He is convinced about the accuracy of what he was told below.
About half way through the show, he dropped a bombshell on the audience. He stated that he knew someone very influential in the Trump campaign and they have been told that the globalists will unleash an EMP to stop the election from happening. The link to the interview can be accessed here. The discussion about EMP attacks begins at around the 10 minute mark.
Many know that I have a number of intelligence sources from both the agencies and the military (e.g. ARSOF). These contact started with my father’s colleagues and were friends of the family and the tree of associations branched out and now I am well into the second generation. Some contacts have come to me in a serendipitous fashion. However, there is one contact whose track record is unquestionably accurate. He was my source for the events at Benghazi.
The source in question was a senior commanding officer in ARSOF and he told me over the Labor Day weekend that an EMP attack was on the table if it looked like Trump was going to win the election. I sat on this information because I did not have any confirming information, until now.
I spoke with this person after my Sunday night show and told him about the contacts I have had in the past 48 hours regarding this possibility. He said an EMP attack was still very much on the table and that we are looking at the Nuclear Regulatory Commission and DHS preparing to strengthen the defense of our nuclear power plants. He said they have stepped up the plants ability to maintain cooling capabilities in case of an EMP attack.
Critical Analyses Regarding Critical Melt Downs
According to Judy Haar, a recognized expert in nuclear plant failure analyses, when a nuclear power plant loses access to off-grid electricity, the event is referred to as a “station blackout”. Haar states that all 104 US nuclear power plants are built to withstand electrical outages without experiencing any core damage, through the activation of an automatic start up of emergency generators powered by diesel. Further, when emergency power kicks in, an automatic shutdown of the nuclear power plant commences. The dangerous control rods are dropped into the core, while water is pumped by the diesel power generators into the reactor to reduce the heat and thus, prevent a meltdown. Here is the catch in this process, the spent fuel rods are encased in both a primary and secondary containment structure which is designed to withstand a core meltdown. However, should the pumps stop because either the generators fail or diesel fuel is not available, the fuel rods are subsequently uncovered and a Fukushima type of core meltdown commences immediately.
At this point, I took Judy Haar’s comments to a source of mine at a nuclear power plant. My source informed me that as per NERC policy, nuclear power plants are required to have enough diesel fuel to run for a period of seven days. Some plants have thirty days of diesel. This is the good news, but it is all downhill from there.
The Unresolved Power Blackout Problem
A long-term loss of outside electrical power will most certainly interrupt the circulation of cooling water to the pools. Another one of my nuclear power plant sources informed me that there is no long term solution to a power blackout and that all bets are off if the blackout is due to an EMP attack. A more detailed analysis reveals that the spent fuel pools carry depleted fuel for the reactor. Normally, this spent fuel has had time to considerably decay and therefore, reducing radioactivity and heat. However, the newer discharged fuel still produces heat and needs cooling. Housed in high density storage racks, contained in buildings that vent directly into the atmosphere, radiation containment is not accounted for with regard to the spent fuel racks. In other words, there is no capture mechanism. In this scenario, accompanied by a lengthy electrical outage, and with the emergency power waning due to either generator failure or a lack of diesel needed to power the generators, the plant could lose the ability to provide cooling. The water will subsequently heat up, boil away and uncover the spent fuel rods which required being covered in at least 25 feet of water to remain benign from any deleterious effects. Ultimately, this would lead to fires as well and the release of radioactivity into the atmosphere. This would be the beginning of another Fukushima event right here on American soil. Both of my sources and Haar shared exactly the same scenario about how a meltdown would occur.
Placing Odds On a Failure Is a Fools Errand
In the event of an EMP attack upon the power grid, the greatest danger to American lives would be the resulting melt down of nuclear power plants. Each plant, that would melt down, would represent a Fukushima event. An analysis of individual plant risks released in 2003 by the Nuclear Regulatory Commission shows that for 39 of the 104 nuclear reactors, the risk of core damage from a blackout was greater than 1 in 100,000. At 45 other plants the risk is greater than 1 in 1 million, the threshold NRC is using to determine which severe accidents should be evaluated in its latest analysis. According to the Nuclear Regulatory Commission, the Beaver Valley Power Station, Unit 1, in Pennsylvania has the greatest risk of experiencing a core meltdown, 6.5 in 100,000, according to the analysis. These odds don’t sound like much until you consider that we have 124 nuclear power generating plants in the US and Canada and when we consider each individual facility, the odds of failure climb. How many meltdowns would it take in this country before our citizens would be condemned to the hellish nightmare, or worse, being experienced by the Japanese?
The Question That’s Not Being Asked
None of the NERC, or the Nuclear Regulatory tests of handling a prolonged blackout at a nuclear power plant have answered two critical questions, “What happens when these nuclear power plants run out of diesel fuel needed to run the generators”, and “What happens when some of these generators fail”? In the event of an EMP attack, can tanker trucks with diesel fuel get to all of the nuclear power plants in the US in time to re-fuel them before they stop running? Will tanker trucks even be running themselves in the aftermath of an EMP attack? And in the event of an EMP attack, it is not likely that any plant which runs low on fuel, or has a generator malfunctions, will ever get any help to mitigate the crisis prior to a plethora of meltdowns occurring. Thus, every nuclear power plant in the country has the potential to cause a Chernobyl or Fukushima type accident if our country is hit by an EMP attack.
CAN YOU EVEN IMAGINE 124 FUKUSHIMA EVENTS IN NORTH AMERICA HAPPENING AT THE SAME TIME? THIS WOULD CONSTITUTE THE ULTIMATE DEPOPULATION EVENT.
The ramifications raised in the previous paragraphs are significant. What if the blackout lasts longer than 24 hours? What if the reason for the blackout is an EMP burst caused by a high altitude nuclear blast and transportation comes to a standstill? In this instance, the cavalry is not coming. Adding fuel to the fire lies in the fact that the power transformers presently take at least one year to replace. Today, there is a three year backlog on ordering because so many have been ordered by China. This makes one wonder what the Chinese are preparing for with these multiple orders for both transformers and generators. In short, our unpreparedness is a prescription for disaster. As a byproduct of my investigation, I have discovered that most, if not all, of the nuclear power plants are on known earthquake fault lines. All of California’s nuclear power plants are located on an earthquake fault line. Can anyone tell me why would anyone in their right mind build a nuclear power plant on a fault line?

If the globalists are not able to collapse America through debt and false flag terrorist events, I am convinced that, through their minions, they will unleash holy hell upon the country through a devastating false flag event such as an EMP attack.
Will this be used to stop the 2016 election? I am sorry I am not a psychopath and have trouble imagining something like this. However, I can say for certain that the Clinton’s have the mindset to unleash this. And we know the Clinton’s through brokering favorable trade deals with terrorist nations, have the contacts to pull this off through the Clinton Foundation.
Terrorist False Flag Events
A series of terror attacks would push the American economy over the edge. I have previously written about various alphabet soup agency people and their families who have gone into hiding in specially prepared enclaves with their colleagues in anticipation to what is coming. Many, including one FEMA family that I knew personally, have repeatedly spoken about the taking down of the power grid. For DHS head,Janet Napolitano knows what’s coming as she stated in her farewell address, “It is not a matter of if, but when the power grid will be taken down”. Congressman Trent Franks (R-AZ) has been issuing the same exact warnings.
Certainly, an EMP attack poses more threats than a threat to our nuclear facilities. However, this is the most grave threat. America is in the most critical five weeks in its history. I do not believe the globalists even know what they are going to do at this point. However, as my FEMA friend said before he went into hiding, “they will do whatever is necessary to maintain control”.
I am so convinced as to the reality of this threat, I am spending the next two days publishing articles regarding the threat resulting from an EMP attack beyond the threat to our nuclear facilities. Enjoy tonight’s debate and make sure you keep a flashlight nearby.
