We’re still sitting ducks, sadly. But at least something has now officially passed. The media is still not covering this, our #1 threat. They’re even ignoring the passing of this bill.
EMP Law: Inside the latest defense authorization bill signed by President Trump on Dec. 20, it mandates that the federal government must protect the nation from the danger of electromagnetic pulse (EMP) attacks whether from nuclear weapons or solar flares.
The law’s language gives legal authority to Mr. Trump’s March 2019 executive order directing the government to harden critical infrastructure against an EMP strike.
But will it actually get protected? I don’t think so. In fact, the grid is composed of mostly private companies and the government has no authority to take over their property or mandate changes. So the government will create a “network of systems to alert the public and provide a warning system to deal with EMP strikes and communicate with the public should electric systems be disrupted.” Federal agencies will have until June to draw up specific plans and procedures for responding to EMP attacks and major geomagnetic disturbances. That is a pipe dream. No government could control the chaos of 325 million people without electricity for months.
