What do the denizens of the slimy dark state know? Will the MSM report this unsettling development? 50 out of 100 Senators accepted the offer for free satellite phones with service. What planned national disaster is coming down the pike this time? And when?

    OK, I'm not surprised as we in the Gulch already know the power grid won't be able to take the fantasies of the left. Meaning power failures and brown outs that bring down cell towers are likely to become inevitable and more frequent meaning the elites will need an alternate form of communication. No EMP or solar flare required because it's just a natural progression of the climate change and government control freak stupidity. We the people might want to work on alternative communications as well - I expect satellite communications won't be available to us peons.

      I saw a Youtube video with a former CIA type who said that it was unlikely that the USA would be subjected to EMP warfare- because
      1) Even high altitude EMP would not do much to military installations, since they are substantially hardened
      2) The USA is so large that it would take multiple nuclear high altitude explosions to cause substantial damage to the country.
      3) Sending ONE EMP missile would catch the USA unaware, and could cause limited damage, but they would eventually find out where it came from and there would be substantial retaliation
      4) There would be a uniting of the American people like happened after pearl harbor. God help the enemy after that.
      5) Sending more than one would result in WW3 to whoever we THOUGHT sent them over.
      5) The damage caused by what an enemy could send over would be nothing compared with the damage we would cause to them. It wouldn't be worth it for an enemy

        The military institutions aren't the target. We are.
        2. The power grid is not hardened. Neither are large cities. Only a few detonations would be required to bring us down.
        3. One high altitude (25-50 miles), high yield detonation can blanket a 450 mile-wide bubble with heavy pulse. A nuke over New York City would black out a huge area, triggering that dreaded domino effect on the power grid. Add one more over Los Angeles and you have effectively brought this country to a screeching halt.
        4. If we are able to communicate after a massive power outage, that might be true, but more likely we would be scrambling to find food and water in panic mode. .
        5. Define enemy. If we were to retaliate against the perpetrator, the powers behind the scenes would dance with glee as the superpowers destroyed themselves and the rest of the world. Welcome, One World/New World Order.

          The movie "sum of all fears" gives a good account of how a small group could get the big guys to destroy each other. That is a very realistic scenario unfortunately, and it wouldn't end like in the movie.

          The TV series JERICHO gives a good account of what happens with I think 20 nuclear bombs on selected cities, plus a few EMP strikes. The series was canceled I think because it was a bit too realistic. It was headed towards civil war and a splitup of the USA (probably a likely scenario).

          I don't think that EVERY electronic device would be destroyed even in a targeted EMP strike. There are older cars, computers shielded sufficiently, phones stored away- the point is that there would be SOME communication and travel available. Power outages would be a problem for sure, but some people DO have generators, and just how much of a problem would a few days or even weeks of no household power. USA is a very resilient nation and people would find ways to survive I think.

            Follow your scenario, and I will follow mine. May the best scenario win.

              Unfortunately, we all will follow whatever scenario actually happens. Neither what I predicted or what you predicted is a good outcome to be sure. I hope sincerely that there are NO EMP strikes at all.

              I have thought in the past that there is a likelihood of ONE emp strike over a relatively sparsely populated USA area sent over by North Korea (approved of by china) as a message to not protect Taiwan. I think Biden would not retaliate on that one. BUT, any more strikes would start WW3 right away.

              When China sent over that balloon, I kind of expected that it contained an EMP weapon, or at least was sent over to see whether the USA was able to detect and stop such an attack. They found out that the USA was NOT able to detect and protect against that kind of attack.

        guy is an idiot
        200,000,000+ of us would be dead in a year

        and tracking down who did it would not be easy

        any nation with satellite launch ability is a possibility
        making a nuke or buying one or stealing one is not as hard as it used to be

        you'd need a 2 stage weapon to be effective, over Chicago

          If the banks were incommunicado, the government would just use its digital currency to allow people to buy things and eat. There would be ration booklets in the meantime, and its unlikely that an enemy would risk the reprisals that would come with firing off an emp strike.

          Also, it is highly unlikely that there would be like 50 simultaneous emp strikes covering the entire USA. After the first one hit, Russia and china and north Korea would be obliterated in global nuclear war. If the enemy was going to strike the USA, they might as well do all our nuclear strike, not just emp.

            The usa is far more likely to see internal damage due to destruction of the dollar and obliteration of the people's savings. What would YOU do if you still had your savings accounts but they were worth 10% of what they are now?

                Great, you are better prepared than most people.
                I am 78 years old, need periodic medical care, cant really farm or do really physically difficult things, and there are a lot of people in this same boat. People who have saved all their lives and will surely lose most of their savings due to the government printing of money will suffer a lot. Politicians are evil people, IMHO.

                  I'm 73 , term 2. Not in the best of health, neither me nor my hubby, but we do what we can. Our wealth in dollars is non-existent. We prefer to invest in other, more practical things. We are extremely fortunate to have family and friends nearby with similar sentiments, but I would really like to be even better prepared. Still working on it. I agree. Politicians are evil people.

    me
    all my backup stuff is in EMP protection
    EMP cloth
    EMP bags
    Faraday cage

    Red Dots for my "toys" that are mounted have backups with the "toy" that are zeroed and in an EMP bag

    glass does not care about and EMP

    and EMP could be a massive solar flare, we've had a few near misses lately from those as well

    or just the power grid failing, from whatever reason

    prepare for something like the Siege of Leningrad, IMHO

    The Sat phones are only so the Congress critters can stay in touch with their mistresses... I’m note sure who Feinstein wants to stay in touch with. Not a pretty thought...

    Why does anyone think a Sat Phone will still work after an EMP attack? Seems more likely they would just take out cell towers in and around D.C.

      there are chips that are EMP resistant
      maybe these are made from those as those chips make slower computers but speed is not an issue for a Sat phone
      ???
