When the Lights Go Out in America


By: Terresa Monroe-Hamilton – the NoisyRoom

As America prepares to celebrate the ringing in of 2013 and the reelection of a Marxist as President, I think we should also review the EMP threat before America’s lights go out. Notice, I did not say “if.” It’s a matter of “when.” I’ve had many on both sides of the aisle ridicule my statements on the threats from Russia and China. Well, the despots may have the last laugh. Add to those two, Iran and North Korea, as well as a string of smaller despotic countries and you have a threat unparalleled in history just waiting to bring America down once and for all.

The Progressives are not stupid, they know the threat is real. As they poo-poo the possibility of an EMP, please realize that these elitists feel they are prepared with their money and retreats. They may even be stealth preppers, but trust me… no one is fully prepared for an EMP attack. Aside from the obvious lack of electricity after such an attack, few realize that millions would die and rather quickly – and death will come for the poor and rich, the middle class and the elite – death is not picky, just opportunistic.

  • No food delivery would cause starvation to become the norm. Cannibalism will become a reality, not just a nightmare.
  • The lack of medicine and medical care would cause death for many even over what we consider to be minor ills.
  • Thousands would have withdrawals from medication running out, which would cause even more death and mayhem. Depression, insanity and desperation will set in.
  • The strong and evil would go on foraging treks and kill anyone who got in their way or just for the heck of it.
  • Government and authority would quickly break down and only those who have prepared for security and protection have a chance of surviving.
  • Without heat in the winter, many, many will freeze to death.
  • Lack of sanitation will cause disease to run rampant, as will the lack of medicine and medical care.
  • Increasingly scarce clean water will become a matter of life and death.

Those are just a few of the challenges we will need to meet when the lights go out. Think about it.

Before you scream that I am being melodramatic, consider North Korea’s intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) capable of delivering a nuclear weapon to the United States, as demonstrated by their successful launch and orbiting of a satellite on Dec. 12. The Left claims we are years from this being a threat, but that just isn’t so. Along with Russia, China and Iran, North Korea is a mortal threat to us right now. Why do you think we still have troops in South Korea? It’s not just to protect them – it’s because the United States knows we are on the short dance list with the North Koreans and an EMP. And the NoKos are sharing information back and forth with the Iranians. Once again, there are those lefties out there screaming, “Well, they haven’t used one yet, so there is no danger!” Really? I am not a military person, but it does not take a battlefield genius to know that unlike impatient Americans, you plan your attack and strike at the optimum time when your opponent is weakest and you have the greatest chance of defeating them. You wait until you are at your strongest, so you only have to strike the killing blow once. A moron could see what is going on here, but smart people evidently have trouble with it.

Iran, China, Russia and North Korea all have nuclear capability and I would argue all (including Iran) have nuclear weapons. Do you really think they all woke up one day not hating the US any more? Nope, they are biding their time. Risk is a global game, but it would seem America cannot get herself out of a localized Monopoly board game. We are on the verge of losing and it will be sudden, bloody and violent. An EMP would do most of the hard work for our enemies – then they would just come in and clean up.

Don’t take it from me, listen to Peter Vincent Pry of the Washington Times, who is an executive director of the Task Force on National and Homeland Security. He also served on the Congressional EMP Commission, the House Armed Services Committee and the CIA:

In summer 2004, a delegation of Russian generals warned the Congressional Electromagnetic Pulse (EMP) Commission that secrets had leaked to North Korea for a decisive new nuclear weapon — a Super-EMP warhead.

Any nuclear weapon detonated above an altitude of 30 kilometers will generate an electromagnetic pulse that will destroy electronics and could collapse the electric power grid and other critical infrastructures — communications, transportation, banking and finance, food and water — that sustain modern civilization and the lives of 300 million Americans. All could be destroyed by a single nuclear weapon making an EMP attack.

A Super-EMP attack on the United States would cause much more and much deeper damage than a primitive nuclear weapon, and so would increase confidence that the catastrophic consequences will be irreversible. Such an attack would inflict maximum damage and be optimum for realizing a world without America.

Both North Korean nuclear tests look suspiciously like a Super-EMP weapon. A Super-EMP warhead would have a low yield, like the North Korean device, because it is not designed to create a big explosion, but to convert its energy into gamma rays, that generate the EMP effect. Reportedly South Korean military intelligence concluded, independent of the EMP Commission, that Russian scientists are in North Korea helping develop a Super-EMP warhead. In 2012, a military commentator for the People’s Republic of China stated that North Korea has Super-EMP nuclear warheads.

A Super-EMP warhead would not weigh much, and could probably be delivered by North Korea’s ICBM. The missile does not have to be accurate, as the EMP field is so large that detonating anywhere over the United States would have catastrophic consequences. The warhead does not even need a re-entry vehicle, as an EMP attack entails detonating the warhead at high-altitude, above the atmosphere.

Do yourself a life-saving favor and read all of the above article. The Congressional EMP Commission estimates that within one year of an EMP detonation, two-thirds of Americans will die – that’s over 200 million people. You read that right – over 200 million Americans will perish and fast. The only saving grace will then be you won’t have to worry about martial law – there won’t be any law and it will be every person for themselves and their families. It will make the Greek riots look like play time.

I know that this potential crisis can be exploited by the powers that be. They probably will use it to further abridge the Constitution. But, I have seen no real intent to protect and strengthen our national power grid. Instead, many facets are on the Internet, which make them even less secure. And Obama has curtailed our ballistic missile program which leaves us further unprotected. I contend, this is on purpose. Obama and Panetta are gutting our nuclear stores and our military program and budget. They are getting ready in 2013 to send out troops to 35 areas in Africa, further weakening our military front. America will be all but defenseless if this keeps up, leaving us a prime target for the insane Mullahs and dictators of the world. It is the ultimate anti-colonialist, pro-Islam military move on Obama’s part.

I want to leave you with some quotes from Kyle Bass, one of the world’s leading hedge fund managers:

“This Ends In War”

“We sit today at the world’s largest peacetime accumulation of debt in world history… you know how this ends right? This ends through war…

I don’t know who’s going to fight who, but I’m fairly certain in the next few years you will see wars erupt, and not just small ones…”

“More Social Unrest”

“You’re going to see more social unrest. You saw HUGE riots in Greece, and you’re seeing HUGE riots in other parts of the world over food (and lack of food) and those are actually derivatives of the financial problems that we’re seeing. We’re exporting inflation to some other nations. Going forward it’s going to be a problem.”

“They’re Not Going To Tell You”

“They’re not going to tell you [that a collapse is coming]. You’re going to have to see it for yourself. [During the Tequila crisis], the Mexican government affirmed they would not default, that they would not devalue, almost daily. The day after they said “we wont devalue,” they devalued by 60%. The government’s never going to tell you that it’s going to happen.

“Greece’s Yunker said recently, ‘When is becomes serious—you have to lie’. These guys are never going to tell you the truth, because they can’t tell you the truth. Their job is to promote confidence, not to tell you the truth.”

“Dinner With The Bank of Japan”

We recently had dinner with the deputy governor of the bank of japan, he just finished a speech denouncing money printing, or quantitative easing. We said ‘Wait a minute, when you expand your balance sheet to buy bonds, we call that money printing, what do you call it?’ He conferred with his advisers, came back and said, ‘When the market tells us it’s money printing, it’ll be money printing. When the rates go up and not down when we buy bonds, THEN it’s monetizing the deficit.”

“Where Do We Stand On Gold?”

“We just look at Gold as another currency that you can’t print… Limitless credit creation is probably a bad idea.”

I predict the next major conflict will include an EMP or EMPs and the financial crisis will be a primary fuse that will set it off. Our leaders will lie to us up until the point of no return. Any sane person can see where all this leads if they think about it and have the nerve to confront evil. When the lights go out in America, it should come as no surprise.


Understand EMP threat? U.S. enemies do

1st comes loss of power, then the explosions start


About Ask Marion

I am a babyboomer and empty nester who savors every moment of my past and believes that it is the responsibility of each of us in my generation and Americans in general to make sure that America is as good or even a better place for future generations as it was for us. So far... we haven't done very well!! Favorite Quotes: "The first 50 years are to build and acquire; the second 50 are to leave your legacy"; "Do something that scares you every day!"; "The journey in between what you once were and who you are becoming is where the dance of life really takes place". At age 62 I find myself fighting inoperable uterine Cancer and thanks to the man upstairs and the prayers from so many people including many of my readers from AskMarion and JustOneMorePet... I'm beating it. After losing our business because of the economy and factors related to the re-election of President Obama in 2012 followed by 16-mos of job hunting, my architect-trained husband is working as a trucker and has only been home approximately 5-days a month since I was diagnosed, which has made everything more difficult and often lonely... plus funds are tight. Our family medical deductible is 12K per year for two of us; thank you ObamaCare. But thanks to donations from so many of you, we are making ends meet as I go through treatment while taking care of my father-in-law who is suffering from late stage Alzheimer's and my mother-in-law who suffers from RA and onset dementia as well as hearing loss, for which there are no caretaker funds, as I continue the fight here online to inform and help restore our amazing country. And finally I need to thank a core group of family, friends, and readers... all at a distance, who check in with me regularly. Plus, I must thank my furkids who have not left my side through this fight. You can see them at JustOneMorePet.

    EMP weapons are a reality. Every weapon humans make gets used at some point in time. This is the event to prep for. To not do so? Well, if it happens you will probably be dead in a few weeks I suppose.



  2. write more often please.
