USA BRACES FOR BIG POWER GRID ATTACK


 
USA BRACES FOR BIG POWER GRID ATTACK


Suspected for years of plotting to dismantle the U.S. electric grid, American officials have confirmed that Iranian military brass have endorsed a nuclear electromagnetic pulse explosion that would attack the country’s power system. American defense experts made the discovery while translating a secret Iranian military handbook, raising new concerns about Tehran’s recent nuclear talks with the administration.

The issue of a nuclear EMP attack was raised in the final hours of last week’s elections in Israel when U.S. authority Peter Vincent Pry penned a column for Arutz Sheva warning of Iran’s threat to free nations. ”Iranian military documents describe such a scenario — including a recently translated Iranian military textbook that endorses nuclear EMP attack against the United States,” he wrote.

A knowledgeable source said that the textbook discusses an EMP attack on America in 20 different places.  Arizona Republican Rep. Trent Franks, who is leading an effort to protect the U.S. electric grid from an EMP attack, has recently made similar claims based on the document translated by military authorities.  —Prophecy News Watch

USA Braces For Big Power Grid Attack-One Alone Will Devastate Entire Nation! 




According to an article in USA Today released March 24, 2015, the USA is bracing for a BIG power grid attack.

—More often than once a week, the physical and computerized security mechanisms intended to protect Americans from widespread power outages are affected by attacks, with less severe cyberattacks happening even more often.
—Transformers and other critical equipment often sit in plain view, protected only by chain-link fencing and a few security cameras.
—Suspects have never been identified in connection with many of the 300-plus attacks on electrical infrastructure since 2011.
—An organization funded by the power industry writes and enforces the industry’s own guidelines for security, and decreased the number of security penalties it issued by 30% from 2013 to 2014, leading to questions about oversight.

Jon Wellinghoff, former chairman of the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission, said the power grid is currently “too susceptible to a cascading outage” because of its reliance on a small number of critical substations and other physical equipment.



It was further stated that between 2011 and 2014, electric utility companies reported 362 physical and cyber attacks that were responsible for outages and/or other power disturbances to the U.S. Department of Energy. Out of those attacks, 14 of them were cyber attacks  while the rest were physical in nature.

The below are some of those incidents:

—2011, intruder gains access to a critical hydro-electric converter station in Vermont by crushing a lock on a door.
—2013, gunman fires multiple shots at a gas turbine power plant along the Missouri-Kansas border.
—Again in 2013, four bullets are fired from a highway striking a power substation outside Colorado Springs.


Disturbing is the fact that of all three incidents, no suspects were ever apprehended. Federal data reveals these types of attacks are not rare within the widespread, interdependent network of transformers, power lines and other equipment that make up the electrical grid.




But what defines an attack? And, how many are actually getting reported as an actual attack? More often than not, these types of incidents are shrugged off by the local police who are called upon to investigate.

For example, in March 2013, security officers at the Jacksonville Electric Authority in Florida noticed a man climbing a fence surrounding St. Johns River Power Park, which produces energy for 250,000 northern Florida households.  When approached, the man fled according to Jacksonville Electric Authority spokeswoman Gerri Boyce.
He was later observed trying to enter a second facility, but fled again and was never caught. Shockingly enough, Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office documents reveal that no one ever filed a police report!

According to USA Today NewsWhile the Department of Energy received only 14 reports of cyber attacks from utilities over the past four years, other reporting systems show rising cyber threats.

The branch of the Department of Homeland Security that monitors cyber threats received reports of 151 “cyber incidents” related to the energy industry in 2013 — up from 111 in 2012 and 31 in 2011. It is uncertain whether the increase is due to more incidents or an increase in reporting.

Scott Aaronson, senior director of national security for the Edison Electric Institute, a Washington, D.C., group representing electric utilities, said it’s difficult to draw trends from figures reported by utilities because of loose definitions of what constitutes a cyber incident.

Even Rabbi Jonathan Cahn, NYT Bestselling Author of the Harbinger, issued a warning for 2015-1016. Pay close attention to the highlight:

“I will state a warning which I have stated before,” Cahn told hundreds of people gathered at the Prophecy in the News conference in Orlando, Florida, this weekend. “Whether it comes in this time parameter of the Shemitah or the year following or not, I believe a great shaking is going to come to this land and to the world that will involve the collapsing of the American economy … and the removal of its blessings and prosperity. Whether it begins with the economic realm or not, I believe it’s going to be bigger than the economic realm and it may have the effect of famine or cutting off infrastructure for a time. The shaking doesn’t have to take place in the Shemitah (year), but I believe we need to be ready.”  —End Time Headlines




Back to Iran’s plans to obliterate the USA through EMP. Frank Gaffney, founder and president of the Center for Security Policy, also explained that the threat posed to the grid can come from solar activity.  He has been pushing Washington hard, as well as state governments, to make a move that is not costly in order to protect the grid, though his concerns are more with a nuclear EMP attack by Iran or North Korea.
He said, ”It is increasingly frightening. We have to get started on this.”

He also mentioned Iran’s top military leader recently announced his intentions to make war with the USA. In 2014, Iranian Armed Forces Chief of Staff General Hassan Firouzabadi was quoted in Iran’s Fars News Agency stating, ”We are ready for the decisive battle against the U.S. and the Zionist regime.” (And bozo said 'YES" to ALL Iran's stipulations to 'negotiate' a treaty??!!)


U.S. authority Peter Vincent Pry’s column clearly discusses an Iranian EMP attack:
Iran armed with nuclear missiles poses an unprecedented threat to global civilization.
One nuclear warhead detonated at high-altitude over the United States would blackout the national electric grid and other life sustaining critical infrastructures for months or years by means of an electromagnetic pulse (EMP). A nationwide blackout lasting one year, according to the Congressional EMP Commission, could cause chaos and starvation that leaves 90 percent of Americans dead.

Iranian military documents describe such a scenario–including a recently translated Iranian military textbook that endorses nuclear EMP attack against the United States.


Should citizens of the United States be concerned at this point? After all, it could happen, and even just one could near annihilate the entire nation! Oh, of course not! After all, according to the naysayers, the libs, and the trolls, nothing is happening at all. It’s all just heresay! Hopefully, I won’t sticking around to see the look on all their faces when they find out how wrong they truly are.
