In recent months, both North Korea and Iran have threatened to launch separate EMP attacks upon the United States. Is such an attack likely? Would a foreign entity dare to launch such an attack given the threats made by Iran and North Korea? However, the emerging information does not suggest that North Korea or Iran will be the perpetrator. They may get the blame for an upcoming false flag attack. However, the real perpetrator are likely to be the forces connected to JH 15 and the drills are providing cover for such an event.  If an attack was launched upon the power grid, what would be the effects? These questions are the subject of this article.

An EMP Attack Is An Utterly Devastating Event

Short of a 3 mile-wide asteroid landing in the ocean, I cannot think of a more devastating event than an EMP attack. If anything, the scenarios I present in this article are on the very conservative side.

I strongly concur with my Congressman, Trent Franks, that an EMP attack is the most devastating event that our country could ever face. Congressman Franks represents a small group of Congressmen who have desperately been trying to attract attention to the possibility that a nation-wide EMP attack would prove more devastating than if a dozen of our cities were to be hit by a nuclear attack.



Our Power Grid Is Very Vulnerable

Our power grid is susceptible to hurricanes, flooding, lightening strikes and Corona Mass Ejections (CME). The grid is also vulnerable to Electromagnetic Pulse (EMP). Dr. John Casti, author of the book, X Events The Collapse of Everything states that EMP is only something that we have known about since the 1950’s when the United States detonated nuclear weapons in above-ground testing in the South Pacific. When one sets off a nuclear weapon, a pulse is emitted which “short circuits” all electronics and permanently damages them.

In 2010, an executive summary from the Federal Energy and Regulatory Commission, warned that an EMP would destroy the power grid, or at minimum, would seriously damage it. The most malicious threat would be a High Altitude Electromagnetic Pulse (HEMP).  A HEMP attack would have a devastating impact on all the normal channels of government coordination and communication, including intelligence and data gathering assets, and nuclear forensics. Indeed, with a  severe societal breakdown, the basic continuity of government agencies would be at risk. Under such circumstances, it is judged unlikely that the source of a  HEMP attack, given even a minimal attempt to disguise it, would ever be known.


The Most Devastating Delivery Method of a HEMP

Most experts agree that the most effective delivery method for a nation-wide EMP, or HEMP attack would be the Club-K Container Missile System.  In its advertised versions, it is designed for launching four or six cruise missiles; It could obviously be converted for a long-range ballistic missile. A Scud-D ballistic missile would fit quite easily into this container as well. These delivery devices would be readily available on the open market and a cargo ship could be rigged to launch such missiles. The North Koreans certainly have the capability to carry out such an attack. The Iranians might, depending on how much technological assistance they have received from Russia. Again, these countries are not going to carry out this attack, the coming attack scenario is setting up to blame these countries as a pretext for war. However, the real impetus for what is coming will be from inside the United States.



A Cross-Section of Effects of A HEMP

Nearly all of the commercial sector is not protected. Most data backups of commercial systems are protected from just about every other threat, but not protected against EMP; and most data backups are located within the area likely to be affected by the EMP attack. Computer systems and the information they contain are especially vulnerable.  In the old Dark Angel television series used to say, in the first episode of the old Dark Angel television series, ” . . . the electromagnetic pulse turned all the ones and zeros into plain old zeros . . .”

An EMP attack would literally send thousands of small and mid-sized businesses in the United States into bankruptcy in less than a millisecond. Other than your printed statements, the banks would have no records of your ledger sheet. You would lose all of your money in the bank.


Education records would be destroyed and only hard copies of transcripts would serve as the remnants of an extinct system. If there is a silver-lining, at least Common Core would stop wreaking its havoc on American students before the damage was too widespread.


America would see catastrophic conditions immediately take place in our hospitals and convalescent centers. Within a few days, old age homes would lack the resources and services of the staff to help preserve the lives of those who are virtually helpless. Patients on the operating table would stand a good chance of not surviving. Hospital backup generating systems would be rendered unusable. Food and water would become a scarce resource. Many hospital personnel would walk off the job by the beginning of the second or third day. The only medical personnel that would stay would be those that live too far away from home to walk. People would not be able to get their life-sustaining medications and services, most of which are electrically powered. Our worst fears would be realized.


In one of the most dramatic effects, airplanes would fall from the skies. Untold thousands of people would immediately be plunged to their deaths. And their deaths might be considered merciful compared to the fate that the majority of the rest of us would face over the next two years. Most automobiles will not work unless they have all pre-electrical parts. Even then how long would gasoline be available? Many people on the various subways, would be hopelessly trapped depending on the time that an electromagnetic pulse would be released. And we can all be sure, that the release of an EMP, through false flag planning, would occur at the optimal time to ensure the maximum loss of life.

Schools and Children

One of the most tragic developments arising from an EMP attack with the fate of schoolchildren geographically isolated from their parents who have already commuted to work. Reuniting parents and their children would be next to impossible for the majority of Americans who have a 30 minute commute or more to work (20 miles).

If you were a teacher, how long would you stay on the job and ignore the welfare of your family?Getting home and reuniting with family will be problematic.


Your cell phones, your land lines, text, twitter, emails and faxes will not work. Nearly all broadcast stations, especially television stations, would go off the air.  Due to the high level of computerized automation, the equipment in most radio and television studios would be so completely destroyed that most commercial stations would be damaged beyond repair.

According to a statement of Damon Penn, a DHS official, made to a committee of the U.S. House of Representatives on July 8, 2011, a limited number of critical radio stations are being retrofitted with some EMP protection.  However, most of us will be without the benefit of mass communication.  Smoke signals anyone?

Somewhere between 250,000 to 500,000 people will die in the first few minutes. Perhaps as many as 1-2 million would be dead within three days.

Water Borne Diseases: The Number One Long-Term Threat

The greatest threat to human survival, in the aftermath of HEMP, is the public’s availability to obtain clean drinking water. This access would be greatly imperiled.

In 2010, when Haiti was hit by a major earthquake which killed over 200,000 people, the misery did not stop with the survivors. Six weeks following the earthquake, Haiti announced its first cholera outbreak in over a century. The cholera outbreak went on to claim 8000 more lives. The disease thrives in places where there is insufficient water treatment, poor sanitation and inadequate hygiene. This is what precisely would happen in most areas following an EMP attack.

Keeping drinking water clean and separate from human sewage and other contaminates would prove to be humanity’s biggest challenge. Cholera would also prove to be the biggest threat to long term survival. It is likely that in the 24 months following the event, that most people, who will die as a result of this event, would succumb to cholera and other water-borne diseases.

Cholera is a horrible disease which grants its victims a very painful and agonizing death. In the 20th century, human lifespan in United States increased by 35 years. Thirty of those 35 years was due to improvements in sanitation. Following an EMP attack, effective sanitation would all but disappear.

Access to Water

Human beings require approximately 2 Liters of water per day in order to survive. If we do not get that water, we will die in approximately 5 days. With regard to a HEMP attack, our water supplies are especially vulnerable. The power to distribute water is highly concentrated within the United States. Only eight municipalities provide 82% of the drinking water in the United States.

There are multiple technologies which are used to pump water from the source to its final destination. Some require no electricity, however, most do. And even if your water system was powered by non-electrical means, how would the personnel and staff, who monitors and maintains your water supply, get to work without proper transportation?

In all of Southern California, the water must make its way over mountains. What will happen when all electricity is gone? The resulting casualty rates stemming from civil disorder and death due to lack of water would be unimaginable.

In a time of a HEMP attack, the availability of water, as well as the safety of water would come into question for the vast majority of Americans. The availability of clean water supplies would be the most critical threat and would claim the most victims.

These grim possibilities makes one wonder why T. Boone Pickens is buying up the Ogallala reservoir. What does he know that the rest of us should know?


The food supply would be imperiled as well. What do crops need to grow? With hydroelectric power gone, where would the water come from for many food-growing regions in the country? Our food supplies would dry up and disappear, thus exacerbating the threat.

Most people will perish within 30 days of famine, thus, making water shortages the greatest threat to survival.

Social Chaos

Survivors would undoubtedly form collectives to forcefully procure food and water. The levels of violence would be horrific. Yet, I was unable to locate any government or academic documents which attempted to project how bad it will get. It is safe to say that it will be a waste of time to call 911 and that every person would be under threat of attack 24/7/365.



Good News! A Nationwide EMP Attack Is Not Likely

It is not likely that our entire nation will be hit by an EMP attack. First of all, the Chinese would never allow their proxy states (e.g. North Korea) or Russia’s proxy states (e.g. Iran) to launch a nationwide attack upon the grid because, for all intents and purposes, China owns a good portion of America’s assets and they are intent on realizing a profit from this ownership of our debt as evidenced by their domination of Inland Ports (e.g. Kansas City) and the newly created Solar Energy Zones (e.g. the Bundy Ranch Affair).

What is more likely is that the United States will be hit with localized EMP attacks, as needed, in order to subdue more difficult areas, and this will be accompanied by an assault upon most of the regional power plants in the United States but EMP weapons would not be employed. The takedown of a power substation will eventually have the effect of an EMP attack without the devastating aftermath. It is certainly an effective means for the authorities to eliminate all dissent and resistance and believe it or not, that possibility of part of the Jade Helm 15 drill.


Ex-Green Beret, John Moore and I have had several on-air conversations about how two eight-man Russian commando teams can take down a power grid, the size of the city of Metropolitan Phoenix which has a population of four million people. How does John Moore know the Russians can perform this feat? Because, we have the same capability. Under such a scenario, the temporary takedown of the grid would be recoverable and that would keep the Chinese creditors happy, however, the devastation would be similar to an EMP attack in terms of social chaos and the destruction of the American culture.

I have learned that the Jade Helm 15 (JH 15)  drill is covertly practicing for the suspension of grid services to isolated communities who are hypothetically “resistant” to the takeover of the United States by foreign entities. In other words, although a nation-wide attack upon the grid is not likely, isolated attacks are likely as will be the takedown of most of the power grids of the United States without the use of EMP weapons.

Further, it was announced that JH 15 would commence on July 15. However, I received credible and multiple reports that JH 15 is already underway and there is a lot about this drill that is not publicly available but the details are beginning to surface through back channels. A phone call to a  trusted source revealed that JH 15 is indeed underway and attacks upon the power grid are part of the drill.  In the meantime, we need to put all eyes on JH 15 as it relates to the topic of this article. However, there is a lot more that is beginning to surface about JH 15 that is equally devastating. Meanwhile, what is one to do with regard to an attack upon the grid? This will be the topic of a future article along with the JH 15 factor.

    Mr. Hodges,
    Could this Jade 15 exercise be preparation for mass evacuation of the SouthWest due to lack of water? Most of these Americans would have to be coerced into moving north and east.

    Hello to you Mr. Dave, I like to give you MY important ideas for this article,
    1. After the moment of an EMP, when you know your phone, clock,anything electronic does not work ever again,the most Important thing ANYBODY should do is GO OUT SIDE & LOOK UP at the sky, & see if any commercail aircraft are coming down, on top of you, Thank’s for your own safety, & saving your own BUTT..
    2. After you know you are going to be safe for now, then you have to REALLY WORRY about the next 3-5 day’s, because after the diesel fuel run’s out of all those power generators powering & keeping the nuclear fuel rods at a nuclear power plants from overheating & a complete & utter massive meltdown will Comence.. It will be a heck of a fire–works show..NOBODY will be delivering fuel for anybody, whatso–ever.. Yes Food & Water, Medical Supplies, are Priceless..Keep you gas tanks full too..Best Regards Robbie..Please Think About It..

  8. S March 23, 2015 at 8:25 am

    Dave, You are right. This is going on right under our noses. They are doing a “California” (Agenda21) on us and have ramped things up significantly over the last 2-3 weeks. Freeport has been quietly (even secretly) buying up all the water rights and farms across the state of AZ. Nato (foreign) is doing night training in Kingman. Lots of mysterious activities all over the state and region. It’s time to wake up.

    Also Mr. Dave, I wanted to ask, is this event, kinda go along with the other event, Russia’s Seven-Pronged Strategy Designed to Conquer America of your other article.. or is this a separate event… I hope none of the above ever happens… best regards Robbie41

    “It is not likely that our entire nation will be hit by an EMP attack.”

    I’m compelled to voice strong disagreement here under the Leninist-Marxist dialectic:
    Firstly, Leninist-Marxists dialectic proponents would view 5-10 years brutal power-structure roll out and drought and famine as an investment for a thousand years gain. They’d consider 5-10 years a necessary result, so they absolutely would favor EMPing the US if they believed 1,000 years gain was the result.
    Second, the Globalists and Leninist-Marxists dialectic proponents both view the US destruction as necessary.
    Bare in mind, we’re talking about an political ideology that has no qualm using manual labor where technology lacks as a matter of public works. It’s not like they give a hoot if the peasantry has to form lines and pass a bucket of water from one location to another. The books would account those hands as ’employed’.
    Thirdly, US politicians like the Blue Lodge these days are not very trusted. I’m sure BIS heads and others are encouraging politicians to take out the hotbeds of resistance like Utah, Texas, and leaning hostile Arizona to ease transition by using Russo-Sino investments to prevent such things as a EMP or Nuclear Strikes, but this is short-sighted in view of Leninist-Marxist Dialectic. Politicians who favor the takeover but not the desired methodologies of the rulers become useless to them. I seriously doubt the Bastards of Basel or otherwise the Dummies’ Club is unaware of these items.

  14. Craig A Mouldey March 23, 2015 at 9:01 am

    My greatest fear of an EMP attack would be all the nuclear plants facing melt downs. I agree with you Dave, such a deliberate scenario is unlikely to be carried out by the usual suspects. We have already seen how easily both the grid and all communications can be taken down with not much effort, with more localized impacts. I’m already very suspicious of this Jade Helm drill and I expect what you have mentioned here along with a take down of all communications to occur. This looks like a gun confiscation/red list round up to me.
    As part of a persons normal preperations, we should have high on our list: what would we do without electricity? And as a person may hide their firearms, if they think they may be on a government naughty list, you may want to have a place to hide yourself.

  15. messenger March 23, 2015 at 10:20 am

    Good morning sir, Florida and Mississippi have been added to the Jade Helm exercises as of noon today. Interesting, since both of these states also have Castle Doctrine and Stand Your Ground Laws which King Anus, his Potentates, and the Ugimmes see as Anti-government. thanks

  16. TMD March 23, 2015 at 10:35 am

    Wouldn’t a large scale EMP also cause major problems for nuclear plants in this country? If the power feeding their emergency systems is not available for a significant amount of time, would we be looking at multiple Fukushima type disasters across the nation? Most of these things are in pretty bad shape to begin with so tossing in an EMP and the resultant chaos certainly won’t help matters.


  17. American mom March 23, 2015 at 10:37 am

    When I read One Second After about an EMP it was the most gruesome unsettling narrative of what would happen in the EMP aftermath.

    We’ll be thrown back into 1800s sans the 1800s knowledge and skills. It will be waves of die offs until the population can be supported by 1800s infrastructure.

    None of my Region 2 and 3 FEMAboard civilian friends had heard of this prior to your article.

    Dave, funny line about at least we’ll lose Common Core, ROFL.

  19. Robotron 2084 March 23, 2015 at 11:41 am

    According to this article and from a scientific standpoint an EMP attack would not be capable of taking out the power grid and damaging electronics. What’s your take on this?-on the article I mean.

    Dave I disagree with this article ….I do not think they would use such a false flag as the chaos that would ensue would be something that would make hurricane Katrina look like a Christmas morning !! Martial law and all the foreign troops they want could not control that type of chaos ….it would be utter pandemonium on a level that would be almost unbelievable !!
    You would have opportunists , punks , gangs , gun owners etc. all in DESPERATION

  24. TXcowgirl March 23, 2015 at 5:58 pm


    as Dave said, good question. What can happen is, and most likely will, the plants can and will have a melt down unless there is fail safe for manual shut down. The biggest problem is cooling the rods down. If there is no fuel for the back up gens, than that is it. That also means that the fuel trucks need to be hardened and the pump stations need to be hardened ( for an EMP ). No electricity, no pumping of fuel in the fuel truck, trucks wont start, no delivery to the back up gens ( generators ), game over. You would also have to count on having people working there who know how to start a slow system closing ( I am avoiding to use a specific word ).
    Also, everyone, and I mean everyone, needs to start protecting their electronic toys in a faraday cage. Here is why: you may not have an internet, but if you can start your desktop/laptop/tablet and have saved information on for a post shtf, you can help yourself. Another one is smart phones and tablets…you can download information and pull it up later. I would recommend saving files on a thumb drive, you can actually buy a bridge with a usb end for the thumb drive and the small port for the tablet. So, there are ways around it. I know the last part of the info may not pertain to the post, but this a circumstance which will happend if the first part goes down.

  25. The Mighty Kevin 2 March 23, 2015 at 8:39 pm

    A trusted friend, many years ago, talked to a reliable “in the know” source that she knew, asking him questions for hours around a campfire, none of which he would answer verbally. Finally he said “You don’t have to worry about EMPs. What I can tell you is, your health is going to be your best asset.” This was before Obamacare was even on the table – it was Hillary’s thing at the time.

    Of course, this source may be compartmentalized like other government agents and can’t know everything, but apparently he knew enough to state unequivocally that she didn’t need to worry about an EMP. Plans can change over several years’ time, but the plans of the elite tend to be long-term. So while an EMP is still a possibility, I don’t think it’s likely.

    The rest of his statement is already proving to be true. Due to Obamacare, our health IS our best asset. Half the people I know don’t even have insurance and the ones who do are running into problems with it now, paying a lot more on premiums, copays, medication, etc., not to mention the confusion and chaos and new regulations that are resulting in people dying earlier than they would have otherwise. I was informed of the last part by a technician at a medical appointment.

    “Your health will be your best asset” also seems to foretell an economic collapse. Your other assets, which most think of as financial, will be worth much less.

  26. Carl March 24, 2015 at 11:03 am

    Dave, Couple of things…
    Under COMMUNICATION above, you say “Somewhere between 250,000 to 500,000 people will die in the first few minutes. Perhaps as many as 1-2 million would be dead within three days.” How will disrupted communications cause this?
    Second, I have considered EMP issues very carefully for quite a few years, and agree with much of your analysis. However, it would be my expectation that the shortage of safe water sources will likely result in significantly higher death tolls, much earlier that you project.

  27. Jim March 24, 2015 at 4:12 pm

    The REAL TRUTH About Jade Helm 15

  29. Jesuis 3 March 24, 2015 at 9:22 pm

    Helicopters have been buzzing over Flagstaff nonstop since last Friday. Can’t see them because they’re flying so low, but can definitely hear all of them in the distance. Very eerie.

  30. Southflgirl March 26, 2015 at 10:53 am

    I live in South Florida and we have had the Blackhawk helicopters flying over our house for the past few nights. It is rather unsettling. I live in Coral Springs and although we are close to Miami, Coral Springs is a quite town. Why would they be worried about us?
