North Korea could reportedly wreak havoc with high-altitude nuclear blast
I have been talking about this for years. North Korea may do this.June 11, 2017 at 5:28 pm #51972
Yeah … and? That danger has been around since the EMP phenomenon was noted by US and Soviet weapons testers in the ’60s, It has only become greater as each additional “player” has acquired nukes and rockets, and as each system is converted to ever more vulnerable digital operation.
North Korea is more dangerous than most potential enemies, because they are the joker in the planetary funny-money deck, and it would be difficult to credibly threaten to worsen their financial condition. But the question for Trump and the CONgress is, what are they going to do about it?
You are here, because you already know that answer, and because you know that question also applies to you.

Not only was that issue already known since the 60s testing, it’s even made it into the Congressional Record more than once, in that “famous” tradition known as “revised and extended remarks.” And it’s been ignored by the government, as well as the entire electrical power industry. I’ve got proof of that, and it was chilling to receive. Call it too expensive to do anything about (if it’s even possible, technologically) – and it very well may not be possible to protect against such a burst once it occurs, or even from a major solar CME. But the fact is, it’s been ignored since some of us were teenagers “back in the day.” And every nuclear power, as well as all the wanna-be nuclear powers, are fully aware of it. Can anyone pronounce “sitting ducks?”
View the old CBS series, “Jericho,” season 1 episode 6 for just a taste of what it would be like the moment an EMP hits.June 16, 2017 at 12:21 am #52007
NK could wreck havoc. In so many ways.
Otto W was returned to the US as a veggie. He walks he eats but his brain is so servely damaged that….?
They subjected him to:
A. Torture no evidence
C. A zombie drug
I’ll choose C. Bio expermentation with the intent to send a message. They have a weapon thats truely frightening.June 16, 2017 at 4:37 am #52012
Not in any way to diminish your speculation – it’s just as good as anybody else’s – but just a little alleged piece of factual news today (not that I believe much of any of it). Doctors REPORTEDLY claim that the type of brain damage suffered by young Otto is consistent with cardio-pulmonary issues, suggesting loss of oxygen to the brain for an extended period of time. He appears to be awake, yet has zero response to outside stimulus. Sadly, it’s known that some people in extreme vegetative states actually are aware of outside circumstances, including conversations around them, and understand what’s going on despite being a prisoner inside their own bodies, unable to respond in any possible way. A truly frightening weapon, or “simply” abuse that stopped his heart for too long, and then they revived him after his brain was incapable of functioning again with the outside world? Either way, we’re dealing with maniacal creatures that people like us simply cannot comprehend. Fundamental evil.July 6, 2017 at 4:10 pm #52049
Kim’s gift on independence day was a game changer. The Pentagon has to come up with a new strategy that takes into the Nk are more advanced in nukes and are getting help from somebody.
Why did our b’tard intell services not know. Were they spending so much time on Obamas enemies list they were ****** punched from within.
The deep state of foreign intrigue may be more hostile than the media.July 6, 2017 at 5:16 pm #52050
The deep state of foreign intrigue may be more hostile than the media.
Until “we” (not just this group, but all like-minded people) realize and then begin to recognize that it is not separate entities (foreign enemies, Democrats, Republicans, Wall Street, media, etc.), we will never understand. And if we don’t understand, we have no chance of overcoming.
I cautiously use the term “Deep State” because it both better characterizes the fact that there is far more going on beneath the visible surface of national and international politics, and at the same time minimizes the extent of it with such a simple, non-specific term. But I don’t have a better replacement that I’m willing to share, except for what it is: fundamental evil. But too many people find that term off-putting, so “Deep State” it is – for now.
The Deep State is all of it – the Republicans, the Democrats, the various factions in French, British, or any other government, Wall Street, the media, and other “entities.” It’s all part of the same thing. I struggled for years, decades even, to understand how it was all coordinated and controlled, unable to comprehend how some small group of controllers could get together, and then wield such incredible and widespread power, and why no one ever leaked from THAT organization. It turns out that it doesn’t work that way, but beyond that I’ll say no more here. The bottom line fact is, however, that the evidence is blatantly clear – the “media” entirely serves the interests of the Deep State. Therefore one has to acknowledge that there must certainly be a connection. “They” are all hostile, because they’re all part of the same so-called system.
What we get on TV is merely what “they” want us to know about. How many Americans have any idea about what’s been happening in South Africa over the past several years, especially? How many Americans have any idea that Ukraine just took massive cyber-hits on everything from their grid system, to computers, to all kinds of other things, and that they were just the focal point of a much more widespread attack by “somebody?” Or that a large number of so-called “minorities” stood in line and, one by one, BLASTED the L.A. Board of Supervisors for diverting money to illegals, when that money could be used to help homeless and other disadvantaged American citizens? Where was THAT on the news? The idea is to divide us, make us feel alone and forgotten, denounce our cherished beliefs, and generally break us down. It’s classic treatment of POWs. But there is hope – others see it too, they just don’t fully recognize what “it” is.

But back to NK – we’re now pretty much over a barrel. Whether they can get a nuke to Japan, Alaska, or D.C. quite yet, somebody’s clearly supplying and supporting them. It’s just a matter of time.
My tentative solution? Do some back channel talking with China, let them know that if they “annex” NK just like the Ruskies did with Crimea, we won’t oppose it, and will subsequently sign a full peace accord to end the Korean War, as long as it contained specific and detailed provisions to which the ChiComms fully agree: South Korea will be a wholly separate and sovereign nation (unlike Taiwan which to this day remains U.S. territory – LONG, fascinating truth!), and that China will NEVER cross the new border (which replaces the DMZ) or otherwise attack SK. Simultaneously we pull out the vast majority of our troops from SK so as not to even appear to be a threat to China.
Foolhardy, even absurd? Find a better solution…. Let NK stay as they are and they have a gun to our heads via the massive conventional weaponry aimed at Seoul. They could kill hundreds of thousands, if not a million or more, in minutes – and we know it, and they know we know it. As long as Kim & Company run NK, we’re always under that gun. We are essentially stopped from any military action against NK. The “status quo” does not exist – it has been moving ever forward for nearly 70 years. Let China have it, we bring most of our troops home, and we’ve at least de-escalated the peninusula for a long time to come. Plus, we rid ourselves of a major burden, militarily and therefore financially. As I said – find a better solution. I’d welcome one.
