“Pulse Attack”: New book explains how electro-magnetic pulse weapons “could lead to massive deaths”

Ezra LevantRebel Commander

Sun columnist Anthony Furey and I talked about his disturbing new book, Pulse Attack, which reveals how electro-magnetic pulse (EMP) weapons could wipe out our infrastructure and cause mass casualties.

National Geographic came out with a documentary called “Electronic Armageddon” several years ago. Check that out as well.

E.M.P. weapons. Destruction of power systems, sewage treatment plants, water supply systems, transportation control hubs, etc. Sounds a lot like the results of the US bombing of Baghdad. Why are you hyping the concern of possible but unlikely developments by North Korea and Iran when this destruction of vital civilian infrastructure is already Standard Operating Procedure by the United States? Furey is being a useful errand boy for the CIA in their ongoing propaganda and distraction efforts.
This is yet another variation of the Weapons of Mass Destruction meme. The only entities actively using WMD are the United States and its lapdog NATO members. In so doing, they are creating exactly the backlash that is the font of extremism and terrorism, which then is used to justify further illegal interventions into, umm, noncompliant (not totally subservient?) nations for the benefit of the weapons industries and Wall Street, at the expense of innocent lives, obtuse taxpayers and the personal liberties of all of us.

Ezra must be new to this literary genre EMP apocalypse stories have been barn stormer best sellers on Kindle for almost a decade. Wanna see society break down real fast – deprive it of its electrical and transport infrastructure – watch it get tribal real fast.

I love how the book has the word Pulse in it, and that it is released on the anniversary of the pulse attack.

place any electronics you wish to protect in the garbage can before the EMP a spare radio an old computer.

A Faraday cage can be made from a metal garbage can plastic wont work.
if necessary (DC) direct current (Earth) battery can be made by driving two dissimilar metal rods into the ground. for example copper and rebar or iron. pour some salt water around them and voila.
Electricity can also be pulled directly from the atmosphere with a fifty foot wire. It is how crystal radio sets operated when I was a kid I made one. Just FYI

“…the urban twits would have no clue how to cope. I actually think this could be a good lesson for many people if it ever happened.”

I forget there is often a silver lining to otherwise horrible tragedies…and what it would do is act as an effective cull of a lot of useless chaff – before the Islamic invaders just walked in…

Dan Mancuso well said, the urban twits would have no clue how to cope. I actually think this could be a good lesson for many people if it ever happened. Politicians pensions and Justins trust fund being wiped out sounds like a good side effect of such an attack. Plus Justin would go into selfie withdrawal.

You seem to have somewhat soft-pedaled the dire seriousness of a targeted EMP – which as you have alluded to – is not speculative, it is the way things will go down…eventually.
Hardening electronics – especially in a culture that absolutely depends on them – is a very expensive proposition – and they’d rather spend your money on sex-change operations for convicted military traitors, womyn’s studies, seriously toxic windmills or just giving it away to Islamist dictators…
That grid gets shut down – everything stops – everything! Your society gets tossed back a couple of hundred years technologically…within a month urban liberals are killing and eating each other – that may sound humourous, but that is the ugly truth…

Personally, you can protect your own electronics by building a Faraday Cage, which is simple and inexpensive:

As to what you want to put in it, think very hard about what you want to have working when the lights go out…
