You Will Not Survive an EMP Strike Without This
More than 180 Americans have left America for Syria to join ISIS. These are born and raised American citizens. And at some point, they will come back! But don’t worry. These peace-loving American patriots will settle back into their homes and mind their own business. Right!
During the international Nuclear Security Summit in Washington, DC, even Barack Hussein Obama warned that the prospect of ISIS getting a hold of a nuclear bomb is one of the most serious threats faced by the world. He said it was clear that “these mad men” would use such a device to kill as many people as they could.
And it gets even worse…
In March 2016 two workers from a nuclear power plant in Belgium fled to Syria to join ISIS. This report came after Belgium authorities had apprehended a third man, who was a senior researcher at a nuclear facility and had been working for ISIS. Several other reports suggest that ISIS is working on a major terrorist plan that will grant them complete control over the Middle East or total annihilation.
In July of last year ISIS got their hands on 90 pounds of uranium from Mosul University in Iraq, and since then, they’ve been working on building a small nuclear bomb. ISIS no longer consists of the cavemen barbarians fighting with clubs, swords, and AK-47’s that we all believed them to be. They are technically sophisticated barbarians using modern army equipment.
One carefully placed nuclear bomb, even a small one, would create worldwide pandemonium. Were it to take out our government leadership, it could end up being months before the United States could organize itself well enough to retaliate. They have already stated their intent to attack the United States. They have bragged about how their flag will fly over the White House.
Considering our porous southern border, getting such a device into the United States would be extremely simple. Then it would just be a matter of selecting the site and time to make their attack have the maximum effect.
And they know what this means: If a nuclear warhead is detonated a few kilometers above the earth’s surface, it produces a powerful EMP, also known as a high-altitude electromagnetic pulse (HEMP) device.
If ISIS blasts a nuclear weapon 270 miles above the U.S., it will basically send us, the Canadians, and the Mexicans back to the Dark Ages. Will we be able to fight back? I don’t think so! Probably most of our ICBMs will turn into a pile of junk. The communication lines and mobiles will probably become useless. They know that this is their only chance of winning this war and conquering the Middle East and the rest of the world. You might laugh at this, but what you believe doesn’t matter. What matters is that they believe it! This is what Allah predicted, and they will die trying to fulfill the prophecy.
A Huge EMP Is Like Opening Pandora’s Box
1 – At a community level: Because we haven’t experienced one yet, we don’t really know how bad it can get. Frank Gaffney, president of the Center for Security Policy, predicted that:
“Within a year of an EMP attack, nine out of 10 Americans would be dead, because we can’t support a population of the present size in urban centers and the like without electricity. And that is exactly what I believe the Iranians are working towards.”
Experts also agree that the next nuclear war will start with at least an EMP. If one of the nuclear powers blasts a nuclear weapon above the U.S., it will destroy our defensive capabilities for good. We will be nothing more than sitting ducks for Russian nukes! I have something you need to watch. It’s much better than I am at explaining the threat. Watch it and learn what you should fear most, what an EMP affects, and how you can protect your electronics, car, mobile phones, etc.
2 – At an individual scale: You don’t really know where you’ll be when it happens, and there won’t be any kind of transportation or telecommunication. You’ll have to walk home. If you work 40 miles away from home, you better have a plan. If your car gets stuck with your family on the highway on a cold winter, you have to have a backup plan. If your child is at school, you have to get him…and so on.
Just like in an economic collapse, you won’t be able to do a lot of things after the crisis begins. The information you’ll find below is good to know and should be considered as a plan. But it’s not 100% prepping. If you want to prepare for an EMP, you need to have some things ready in advance. (Related: 10 Things to Have Ready before the Huge EMP!!!)
When an EMP strikes, most of the population will think it’s temporary and that in a couple of hours everything will be back to normal. This gives you a huge advantage. You will have at least 12 hours before the panic sets in to take care of anything you might need to survive.
Steps to Take Immediately after the EMP:
The first thing you have to do is to get back home quickly and safely. You and your family should have all previously established this as the number one priority. Ensure that everyone is accounted for.
The biggest problem will be finding a means of transportation; as you know, most cars will not work anymore. A lot of preppers overlook this aspect because they have a faraday cage and think they have everything covered. But if the EMP is powerful enough, a faraday cage is not 100% reliable. (Related: 10 Faraday Cages you can make at home)
Immediately convert any cash into useful assets like food, water, medicines, and supplies like clothing and fuel. Your money will become worthless very quickly, so use it up at nearby shops. A can of meat will cost thousands of dollars in a few days.
After your family is safe, you should contact neighbors and establish regular meeting times (at sunset for example). Together you can make an inventory of skills and supplies. Brief everyone on security, from traveling in pairs to avoiding walks at night. Establish regular patrols and danger signals if attacked. Don’t underestimate your neighbors; maybe they are not preppers, but considering we don’t know 100% what will go down after the EMP hits, you never know what you might need, and they could have it. It’s better to be in contact with them—so long as you don’t brag about your stockpiles.
Begin to ration food and water, and consider how to deal with human waste, dirty water, and trash. If necessary, dig a pit at least 100 yards from the nearest food or water store and a minimum of one foot in depth. Trash should be buried or burned on a daily schedule and moved away from your home to keep rats away.
Secure your home before nightfall, checking the perimeter for breaches and ensuring that doors and windows are locked. Empty tin cans on a string are a simple early warning system for intruders, and broken glass can act as a barrier to entry. (excerpt from the book Surviving an EMP: The Early Pioneer Way)
To me the scariest thing about an EMP strike is the lack of communications. You might not realize how dependent we are of electronics but imagine a day without your phone and no way of contacting your family, no way of knowing if they are ok. A phone gives you a sense of security. The only thing that will work in that moment is a HAM radio or a two-way radio. Every person in my family has a faraday cage in their car with a radio in it, so we could communicate the moment an EMP strikes. I’d rather be safe than sorry. I actually made a device that you can attach to your radio. This will enhance your communication range and you could reach people almost 70 miles away. Because this option will be known by fellow preppers, you should choose a frequency and a time of day. The best hours to talk will be in the middle of the night, plus it’s always a good idea to use disinformation tactics like in the military. This will prove very helpful because you would reach people a town or maybe two towns away. You can find out what is going on, how the EMP affected them, the supplies that they have and how you can use your resources to help each other out.
Immediately secure all the water in your home, filling bathtubs and any other container with the remaining water via the municipal supply, within pipes, and from storage and rainwater tanks. To flush pipes, turn off the water at the shutoff valve, put a container under the lowest faucet in the house, and then open the lowest faucet and then a second faucet higher up.
Prepping for this kind of disaster takes a lot of time and work and involves every area of prepping. You start with the basics: supplies, bug out bags, solar panels, etc., but the more you learn about EMPs, the more you realize how complex and convoluted is. You won’t have Internet access and your computer will fry, so you won’t be able to google your way out of the problems that will arise. So having a physical EMP guide by your side that helps you deal with all EMP effects will prove crucial.
It was difficult for me to find a comprehensive book that can explain all these necessary steps. Most of these books said the same things—how to store supplies and ration food; but I already knew that—until recently, when I received a book from a friend. It’s called Darkest Days: How to Survive an EMP Attack to the Grid and written by Charles Green. He’s an ex-college professor, physicist, and prepper. He became so obsessed with surviving the EMP threat that he took a two-year sabbatical to live in an Amish community. The Amish are a very unusual religious community. Modern life comforts are irrelevant to them. They barely use any electricity, and when they do, it’s off the grid. So if you, too, want to get your hands on this book in hard cover to have this knowledge by your bedside, watch his video and learn how to protect yourself, your car, mobile phone and other devices.
