Nov 4, anyone on ARRL or MARS who wants to provide updates?November 2, 2017 at 3:24 pm #52566
I do not “get” that announcement at all, even ignoring the fact that they’re not mentioning the nuclear high altitude EMP blast scenario looming over us and sugar coating it as a nice, natural solar event.
“This exercise will begin with a national massive coronal mass ejection event which will impact the national power grid as well as all forms of traditional communication, including landline telephone, cellphone, satellite, and Internet connectivity,” Army MARS Program Manager Paul English, WD8DBY, explained in an announcement.
During the exercise, a designated DOD Headquarters entity will request county-by-county status reports for the 3,143 US counties and county equivalents, in order to gain situational awareness and to determine the extent of impact of the scenario.
I can just hear the SITREPS coming from each county (that bothers to even participate): “Well, none of our vehicles are being used to simulate not going anywhere, we’re pretending the stores are looted, empty, and closed so we’re not getting needed supplies, we’re pretending looting is REALLY bad when the lights are out so we’re getting our weapons out but can’t see because our night vision devices aren’t working. Yep. Basically, we’re just sitting around doing nothing except foraging the forests for roots and berries. That’s our report.”
They’re simulating an event that will take down the grid as well as all unshielded electronic equipment (a more difficult task than many internet “experts” apparently realize – probably not as simple as putting things in galvanized trash can). Yet they’re using radio frequencies with electronic equipment to communicate about it. How does THAT work? That’s like saying we’re going to simulate that every bridge over every body of water is out, but we’re going to use motor vehicles to get back and forth everywhere during the exercise without crossing the bridges. This would seem to be somebody’s idea of a “feel good” exercise that confuses absolutely useless activity with meaningful accomplishment of something that could not be be accomplished under the real world scenario they’re simulating . What am I missing here?!?
The article itself has some decent informational resources at the bottom, but even some of those are absurd – like the one that discusses using diesel fuel because it doesn’t require an electronic ignition system – as if there are no other electronics in diesel vehicles (uh – can anyone say “fuel pump?”). The bottom line is that we need to think through life in the middle 1850s, except add concentrations of populations that didn’t exist back then. Lead will potentially be at the very top of the precious metals chart! As for equipment: shovels, rakes, hoes, and plenty of stored heirloom seeds, plus a couple of books on companion planting, Square Foot Gardening, natural pest control, yada, yada. (But hey – at least some DoD employees are justifying their pay by creating these simulations of nothingness! )November 3, 2017 at 10:29 pm #52567
Nov.4th is also the supposed ANTIFA “revolution” , but more like tantrum . I think its one of four possibilities .
1} All hype , like Y2K . The day will come and go , nothing happens .
2} They do indeed attempt something , in which case they will be annihilated by the Federal Government, Law Enforcement , and the American people ………..game on , and game over for them .
3) only SOME of them riot , the rest ***** out and stay home fearing the crack down . It might amount to a passing story in the nightly news , not much more .
4) Its a diversion for something else . I dont see them being that smart to pull anything like that off .
Out of the four , my opinion is that number 3 is the most likely . Either way , the timing could not have been better , I just picked my KSG today >:)November 4, 2017 at 2:43 am #52568
November 4th?!? Why not May 1st? LOL! Much more fitting.
[I suppose they’ll take credit for causing DJT to flee to the other side of the world in fear?]November 4, 2017 at 3:13 am #52571
President Trump is going to be in Asia for 11 days. New fed chairman. What do you discuss with asians except money and war. It could get a bit antagonistic. All that glitters isnt gold. Ivanka gets an all female guard in japan. This is a high stakes trip. Econonics to the moon. America first. Fair trade.
Bought a new movie named Bushwick and watched it tonight. It appears to be a military attack on Brooklyn, the home base of clintons democratic gangster party operation. A lot of fighting in the streets. Cleaning up the swamp creatures. Partisan warfare. WCS minus backstory except for states rebelling against the government and civil breakdown.
Ive been watching a few of those simulated war and national emergency blurbs on youtube lately. Practice to get it just right is my guess. The right tone, pace and seriousness. Get ready or whatever. A Cme sounds like the least of the countrys problems. If the antifa what to protest good luck. They wont embarrass President Trump. He’ll use his twitter batt on them.

I saw an interesting take on the 11 minute deletion of President Trump’s Twitter account by an employee having fun on his last day. The question has been raised as to what kind of security is on the Trump account. If that employee had permission to delete the account, did he also have the ability to send out fake DJT tweets – such as “Korea just launched a missile toward the U.S. – Little Kim will be vaporized any moment now,” or other provocative tweets that could literally start a war? Why haven’t we heard a big deal over the unauthorized control of the President’s Twitter account? The implications are enormous. His “twitter batt” may be more (or less) effective than he realized.November 4, 2017 at 10:43 am #52575
I wonder what would have happened to the same guy , if he did that to Putin ?November 4, 2017 at 10:45 am #52576
Fake news is everywhere GS. The democrats are being forced into a cul de sac by Trump. They’re desperate. One nice lottery winning muslim with 23 relatives on their home turf in bloomberg nyc has them talking gun confiscation. They blame Paddock or the vast right wing russian collusion conspiracy. Just the slighest mention of “draining the swamp” upstate and they surround themselves with armed security. DJT should tweet: gulags for free to all rats. They would ban him on socialist media and CW2 would begin. It really is that crazy. Even out here in the boonies. Voting day on the 7th. We’ll see just how fast the dominoes are falling. Lol
Donna Brazil our new convert to the light. HRC for prison.November 4, 2017 at 3:48 pm #52580
Donna Brazil our new convert to the light
Convert to making money, at least. She knew this back in September, but it’s just now coming out (totally coincidentally, of course) with the release of her new book – in which the revelation occurs. Why not report it to the public when she knew it? Nope, ain’t countin’ on ol’ Donna to be reliable for anything except herself. As for HRC? Prison would be too good for her – they’d give her the same sweet “prison” deal that Martha Stewart got. The better alternative would be [unprintable].November 6, 2017 at 9:58 am #52581
I’m not saying Brazile isnt a nut. Afterall she wanted Biden to replace Hillary. Rather than concede the race she attemted to pull the DNC out of its divebomb with a trojan horse. Compared to Hillary, the guy streetnamed Uncle Joe really displayed erratic behavior. A weinstein who liked to drink excessive amounts of booze and grab women.
There is evidence CMEs and solar flares can cause abnormal behavior. Scientists track cell phones in cars, shopping behavior, visits to doctors, eating disorders. Why not attribute Antifa behavior to solar cycles and make a few relevant predictions. Democrats dont have to go out and scream at the sky because of Trump. Magnetic lines of force can send them over the edge, like the herd animals they are in reality. Witness the ban guns behavior of celebrities. The killer at the church was stopped by a citizen with a gun. But the demo herd links arms and chants antifa slogans anyway. When does simulated mean real. Thats the question. Is psychotronics real. Looks like it.
Solar sector boundary crossing. Nov 6. Prepare for it.

Ahhh, but we all survived the Antifa Uprising on Saturday.
Awaiting the magnetic pole shift today – should be fun!
And tomorrow and Wednesday we get more of the wind the sun just passed out of its northern hole.
Sad thing about the Texas church shooter is that the gun law to prevent this shooting WAS already in place – for the past 20 years. Due to his conviction in an Air Force court martial for domestic violence against both his wife and child, he automatically fell under the no guns for life Lautenberg Amendment. But we will hear more screams of, “We need more gun laws!!!!!” Of course that didn’t even stop this One Delta Ten Tango from posting his new “bad b_tch” gun on his Facebook page. Sigh….
Man! Just look at what all happened as a result of that simulated CME from 4-6 November!November 6, 2017 at 10:33 pm #52586
Bad b-tch Anteefa gunman. I guess the school outcast found a motive. A hit on the religious right. Stephen King should be contacted and asked if he thinks his books influenced this guy. Was there a large crow nearby.
Dont fear the Reaper. Blue Oyster Cult.
The (explainers) dont know what was going on in this guys head. Just another psycho. Not like the kids in Baltimore going around beating people. They’re only little wanta be for now. But the Nyc truck killer was real. The further away from the east coast the more fly over country it becomes.
Not to mention the murder attempt on Rand Paul. Not quite simple assault after such a serious injury. The perp was a doctor so he knew the what he was doing.
Like the muslims. One attack at a time. Drip drip drip…..
