A Dire Warning for America
Editor’s note: Now and then we need to remind ourselves of the potential threats that face us. No one can predict the future, so no one knows what will happen for certain. That’s why we must be situationally aware in our present world, face any fears with resolution and prepare.

FBI Director James Comey Has Dire Warning For America
By: Capt. William E. Simpson
Preppers need to pay close attention!
Stuffed in-between the distracting RNC Convention and the DNC Convention-Kabuki show of political corruption, intrigue and flag burning, which has been dominating the media almost 24/7 for the past two weeks, the situation in the middle-east has become more unstable than ever before. The coup in Turkey has left that NATO country on the verge of becoming an autocratically run Islamic state. Not a good thing given that we have a strategic air-base located at Incirlik Turkey, especially now that angry demonstrations are being conducted by Muslims just outside that NATO base, which is alleged to house tactical nuclear weapons in an underground bunker.
And now comes FBI Director James Comey with a dire warning for America:
“Hundreds of terrorists will fan out to infiltrate western Europe and the U.S. to carry out attacks on a wider scale as Islamic State is defeated in Syria, FBI Director James Comey warned.” ~ Bloomberg
In regard to the current news cycle and debates swirling around thousands of Muslim immigrants being allowed into America from Syria and other Islamic hot-spots, past and future, a question was posed to me by a reader:
“It would be interesting to see how these locations [Muslim immigrant relocation areas in America] would overlay our key electrical grid stations.”
The EMP Commission Report to Congress reported that America’s critical infrastructure, which is supplied by the aging and over-burdened U.S. electrical grid is the real soft target in America today.
Our grid is highly vulnerable to attack from any radical with a very minimal of military gear (let alone an EMP weapon) at any key node on the grid, potentially resulting in a ‘cascading failure of the entire grid’. A ‘cascading failure’ of the entire grid could also be triggered during a major earthquake if too many main transformers are affected causing an uncontrollable power fluctuation across the grid, damaging additional transformers down the transmission line. Added to which, any top-end hack on the computers running the grid could bring it down as well.
Finally, a solar event (AKA: Carrington Event) or nuclear EMP attack would also take down the grid resulting in catastrophic events across America. Damage to the grid is a very grave problem.
This video pretty-much summarizes the magnitude of the risk as discussed in the EMP Report.
Even with the EMP Commission Report (2004) out and available to read by the public, and with many videos and books on this serious risk, it seems that 90% of Americans remain living in the worst possible situations (geographically) should the critical infrastructure in America fail for one reason or another.
As it stands and was reported to the members of the U.S. Congress, about 90% of Americans will be dead in about a year after the loss of our critical infrastructure. This also holds true in the event of a bio-weapons attack using infected (jihadist) human carriers onboard trans-oceanic airline flights into America. We see that Islamists have no problem strapping-on a C-4 death vest, so we can assume that acting as a host for a deadly virus is no problem.
The bottom line is that, unless people are living exactly in the right spot when disaster happens, the odds of positively mitigating survival rates during any such events are very low. Being in a position to survive requires a comprehensive risk analysis and the subsequent implementation of a realistic personal-family solution.
Ranchers/farmers with lands suitable for sustainable-living (50 acres or more with on-site water source) located 200-300 miles away from large cities, have the highest chances to survive past two-years post-event; by then the population in the U.S. will have been decimated as a result of casualties according to the Report (full report; 207 pages).
A Muslim jihadist that has been exposed to weaponized smallpox could potentially board a transatlantic flight to New York, using the restrooms on the plane and in the airport, which would spawn thousands of newly infected carriers (variola virus is extremely contagious; transfers like a cold). It would only be a matter of a week before the disease with be widespread across America, and this would make the Flu Pandemic of 1917 look like a picnic at the park.
Today, too many people are mesmerized by the media and distracted from the most important question in their own lives: Can they survive past a year when the inevitable happens?
