EPISODE 90: “Forget Covid 19. Worry about EMP.” With Dr. Peter Vincent Pry and Frank Gaffney.
It’s time to wake up to an existential risk that looms infinitely larger than anything posed by the Covid 19 virus.
Electromagnetic pulse (EMP).
EMP can be caused by a naturally occurring solar storm, a nuclear weapon or something as simple as a manmade suitcase sized device and would collapse electric grids and electrical critical infrastructures all over the world
A nationwide blackout lasting one year could kill up to 90 percent of the American people, through starvation, disease, and societal collapse.
Moreover, EMP is the ultimate cyber-weapon in the military doctrines and plans of Russia, China, North Korea, and Iran.
The threat is not theoretical. A solar storm EMP occurred in 1859 at the dawn of our electrical age and destroyed telegraph systems everywhere in the world.
“Today, the impact would be catastrophic. Power grids would collapse all over the world. And all of the life sustaining critical infrastructures, telecommunications, transportation, business, finance, even food and water, depend directly or indirectly upon electricity. And advanced electronic civilization in the whole world, even in African countries depend upon electricity now for the survival of their people,” warns my guest Dr. Peter Vincent Pry.
But preventing this terrifying scenario “has never enjoyed popular recognition or government sustained focus” explains my other guest Frank Gaffney.
Join me as I learn in this riveting conversation about what our government is doing – or more accurately not doing – to protect America from this threat.
Dr. Peter Vincent Pry is executive director of the Task Force on National and Homeland Security and the author of The Power And The Light: The Congressional EMP Commission’s War To Save America 2001-2020.

You can’t fix what is wrong in the world if you don’t know what’s actually happening.
Polls show that most smart people tend to believe that the state of the world is getting worse. In the United States, almost 3/4 of Americans believe the world is getting worse and only 6% think it’s getting better.
But according to Marian Tupy, our guest on this episode, “this dark view of the prospects for humanity, and the natural world is, in large part, badly mistaken.”Watch Now

Episode 250: The Terrifying Truth About China’s Grip on America | A New Cold War Unveiled – Frank Gaffney and Bradley Thayer
China is the single most formidable strategic threat the United States has ever faced. It alone has the potential to replace the United States as the world’s hegemon.
China is not a typical foreign adversary on another shore, gathering behind its army, aggressive, thinking about land warfare, even nuclear warfare. This is an enemy that’s permeated the United States, it’s infiltrated into our culture and China’s strategy of “elite capture” is working. A lot of the leadership class in America seems to be in the pocket of the Chinese.Watch Now
