I have written about a bunch of amazing people in this book. Most of them have already died.
Many were so close to God, and God used them to do some amazing things for Him.
Now I want to tell you about one who is still very much alive as I write this.
It is my opinion that God has tasked him with warning us about and to immediately prepare for what can only be described as an absolute catastrophe if we don’t prepare for it.
First, let me show you my good friend’s credentials: Dr. Peter Vincent Pry:Executive Director of the Task Force on US National and Homeland Security,He served in the Congressional EMP Commission as Chief of Staff,The Congressional Strategic Posture Commission,The House Armed Services Committee,The CIAAuthor of “Blackout Wars” and a Plethora of Articles and Studies
To show you about where his heart and thoughts are let me quote for you a few paragraphs from him. I am writing this on May 1, 2019. He wrote the following only last week and it was put in a national publication this morning:
“The Age of Science boasts Reason has triumphed over Faith, and God is dead. Christianity is hounded from the public square, is silenced, or worse mocked and despised, in our schools, modern art, and entertainment.“Christianity and its child Western Civilization are thought so shameful among “intellectual elites” they would brainwash us into their new faith that is secular humanism, replace Christ with Marx, suborn individualism to collectivism, replace thought with “group think,” confuse the just society with “social justice,” and abandon free markets and free nations for the tyranny of socialism and globalism.
“Is Mankind better served by reviving, or at least understanding, Judeo-Christian values that built and sustained Western Civilization for 2,000 years, until the 20th Century — or by the new “religion” of secular humanism that worships false science and the technocratic state, that dominates society and governments in the 21st Century?
“Western secular humanists and socialists will vehemently protest they have nothing in common with the USSR, Nazi Germany, Communist China, North Korea, Cuba, or Venezuela — even as they embrace atheism and Marxism, shout down and mock the religious, and pretend to subscribe to objectivity and “science” in order to achieve “social justice.”
“All totalitarian movements start this way, promising a Worker’s Paradise, delivering concentration camps and doomsday.
“ Let us hope and pray for the resurrection of God’s law and Christ in the hearts and minds of men.”
Do you know what an Electro Magnetic Pulse is? The last one to hit the earth as it zapped out from our sun happened when Charlie Goodnight was only 23 years old, September 2, 1859.
Just a relatively small nuclear explosion high above the central US would also cause one. You would not feel it. You would not even see it, unless you were looking straight up over the central US when the relatively small nuclear device was detonated 70 to 72 kilometers up in the stratosphere. However, the pulse would fuse any two pieces of metal that are close together…..like the firing pin in most guns, all electronic devices, the ignition system in any car made after 1973. In an instant most all cars on the road stop and all parked cars will not start. All planes in the air go down. But most of all, our entire electric grid is wiped out. And this happens from the east coast to the west coast and from central Canada to Mexico City, most likely never ever to return in our lifetime.
Will this ever happen? I met with a select group in our State of Texas Capital a few months ago. There were several analysts from the CIA there as well as knowledgeable National Security Analysts and Engineers, and Military Officers. Many of us have read the only good book written about EMP, One Second After. The author of that book, William R. Forstchen, was even there. Texas State Senator Hall was there too. His previous job as an Air Force Officer was to shield our large missiles from EMP. These folks were adamant that there is no other threat as likely and probable to happen to the US as this threat. Forget global warming. The following information is from………. Peter Vincent Pry, Ph.D. and Executive Director of the EMP Task Force on National and Homeland Security. He was many years at the CIA and knows more about EMP than most anyone.
He absolutely expects it to happen. He is almost what I would describe as frantic about it. It will happen from one of three ways:
(1) Iran or some other rogue nation will get hold of a nuclear device, sail into the Caribbean on a tramp steamer and launch it with a cheap Scud missile of which Iran has plenty. They really don’t have to aim it well, just get it up somewhere over the central US. It does not need to be a really big one like a hydrogen bomb, just a small atomic one. The Iranians are just salivating about this. They could then fight us with swords like the Muslims of old.
(2) North Korea has two satellites traveling several times a day from southwest Texas up over the Central US. The CIA analysts and Dr. Pry said that each weighs between 250 and 300 lbs. They say that they are sure that one or both have a nuclear device in them. They don’t need a spy satellite to weigh that much. If they don’t have such a bomb in them, the North Koreans can easily put up another satellite that does.
(3) We are way over-due for such a major pulse to hit earth from the sun. It has happened regularly in earth’s history. Dr. Pry says that the last big one was on Sept. 2, 1859. We did not have an electric grid then, but we did have telegraph lines. The entire existing telegraph system was fried and wiped out. It even traveled down the rail lines and warped the rails wherever they curved. All those warped rails had to be replaced. An EMP of that same magnitude from the sun very narrowly missed the earth in the fall of 2012.
Dr. Pry says that conservatively 30 million or more people in the US would be dead in 30 days. However, the CIA analysts say 90% of the US population will be dead in 30 days. Without electricity they would not have water. But you say, I know where to get water from surface sources. Yes, but the tens and tens of thousands of people going to those same sources would have it so fouled that it would not be potable for most folks. The CIA analysts there told me that they keep a little back-pack in their cars, mostly filled with water purification tablets. When I asked why, they said that when their car stops wherever they may be, they just want to try to be able to get back home.
Forstchen called his fiction book about the result of this happening to a small US community, One Second After, because it all happens in just one second.
No more electronic devices of any kind would exist. All bank records are gone. Everything stored in every computer, even in the cloud, is gone. There would be no more communications, no cell phones, and certainly no TV or radio. In that one instant, we would be plunged back into the 14th Century.
Most folks don’t realize that our electric grid is tied together and dependent on a few massive, extremely heavy transformers. They are so heavy that they are very hard to transport to the strategic sites where they are needed. They can only be manufactured by hand. They are not made in the US; they are made in Japan and in Germany. These would all be “fried” with an EMP. It is doubtful then, if ever they could be replaced.
In 2001 Congress established a commission to study the danger of an electromagnetic pulse generated by the detonation of a high-altitude nuclear weapon. It concluded that while there would be no blast effects on the ground, critical electricity-dependent infrastructure would be rendered inoperable. The commission’s chairman, William R. Graham, has noted that several Russian generals told the commissioners in 2004 that the designs for a “super EMP nuclear weapon” had been transferred to North Korea. While a regular nuclear bomb will achieve an EMP, the Russians have been perfecting certain ones for maximum EMP effect.
Recently the news media reported how a North Korean medium range missal was destroyed in mid-flight. They expressed their confusion about why it had been destroyed when it was operating successfully. Dr. Pry told me that the media did not understand that this was a test of how one of their missals can go up to deliver an EMP nuclear device and be exploded at just the optimum height for an EMP blast.
I wrote an email about this subject to some of my friends. I mentioned the two North Korean satellites and how their paths carry them up over the Central US every day. Someone got that email to Lou Dobbs. You have probably seen him on Fox Business News on his weekday broadcasts each evening. He read it on his program, verbatim……word for word. And if you have watched him, you have seen how when something strikes him as very cogent, he will look right into the camera and comment on it.
On this occasion, when he got to the part of my email about the North Korean satellites, he looked right into the camera and said very earnestly: “Why in the world haven’t we shot those two things down!”In late 2017, just before Kim Jong-un became involved with President Trump, he made an interesting statement. He said publicly, directly to the United States through a translator: “If you people don’t stop messing with me, you are all going to live like dogs!”
As a proud American, I hate to admit it, but until we at least get our electric grid hardened, maybe we had better listen.
At that conference in the Texas Capital all those important people from across the US had come all the way down to Austin, Texas. When I asked them why they were there, they had a very practical answer. They were most all desperately anxious for us to get our electric grid hardened to withstand such a magnetic pulse before it is too late. They don’t want to see 90% of the whole US population dead in their homes and in the streets. They expressed that they are in effect, hitting a stone wall in trying to get the grid hardened.
They said that since Texas is the only state with its own grid, and since as they put it: “Texans are tougher, more energetic, and in our opinion more apt to do it than anyone else. “We are here to try to get you to do it as an example to for the rest of the nation.”
On July 9, 1962, the US launched a Thor missile from Johnston Island, an atoll about 1500 kilometers (900 miles) southwest of Hawaii. The missile arced up to a height of over 1100 km (660 miles), then came back down. At the preprogrammed height of 400 km (240 miles), the 1.4 megaton nuclear warhead detonated. We wanted to test one of our nuclear warheads so high up that no damage or results on the earth were expected.It was called Operation Starfish, and all hell broke loose.
From this explosion, we learned much more about EMP than we had ever known before. There were not many satellites up at that time. But the EMP fried the insides of the 6 satellites above that area at that moment and caused many others to fail later.
Even though it was way higher than the 30 to 40 miles which are optimum for EMP effect, it fried most of the telephone system in Hawaii, damaged the electric systems for hundreds of miles around, and wiped out most of the street lights in Hawaii. If Hawaii’s electric grid had not been so underdeveloped and analog, it would have been totally destroyed instead of just badly damaged.
Congressman Bob Hall desperately wants Texas (at least) to harden its electric grid against an EMP. Here is what he sent out to his constituents recently in an email report:
There was a time when life without electricity was the norm. By the 1930s, the majority of people living in larger towns and cities enjoyed the luxury, but only 10 percent of Americans who lived on farms or in rural areas had electric power. In 1936 the Rural Electric Administration was created to bring electricity to rural areas. No longer a luxury, electricity is now considered to be essential to life. A resilient power supply is essential to sustaining economic prosperity.
A prolonged power outage today would result in a complete breakdown in the fabric of society as we know it. Without power, communications systems would go down, creating a chaotic response to the situation. While limited locations would have access to temporary generators, as the on-site fuel for those generators is expended, replacement services would be at a standstill. Pipelines and transportation systems would be immobilized. Medically fragile individuals with dependency on machines would be some of the first victims. Those who depend on life-saving medications would be next as diseases such as high blood pressure and diabetes, currently controlled by medication, become death sentences. Then, as clean water supplies are compromised and waste water treatment plants are overwhelmed, diseases commonly associated with third world countries would become prevalent.
While Texas history with hurricanes, wildfires, ice storms and critters has made the state well-prepared for short term outages of power, there has been no significant planning for a catastrophic long-term loss of the electric grid that could be the result of cyber, natural, or man-made causes. The very idea that a single event causing the loss of the electric grid could plunge the entire nation back into a time without electricity, cell phones or the internet is so overpowering that it is easier to ignore the threat than to plan for it.
At that conference in Austin, their one plea was to try to get us to harden our electric grid against an EMP. It is not that hard or expensive. The CIA folks and the military folks and Dr. Pry were here in Texas to plead with us to harden our grid as an example for the rest of the country, because Texas is the only state in the US with its own independent, separate electric grid as I have written. They estimate that it will only cost $13 per person. And my main purpose in bothering you with all this is to implore you to do whatever it takes to get our grid hardened; the grid for the whole US. There are two companies standing ready to do it.
I asked Dr. Pry what he intended to do when an EMP hits us. He said that he intended to die along with everyone else, but then said, with tears in his eyes, that he just hoped that his grandchildren and great grandchildren would be able to survive.
Dr. Pry has only 4 other people to whom he sends his most private emails. I have promised him that I would continue to pray for him. He knows that God has entrusted him with the task of alerting our nation to this peril, and he does feel the burden, all the time.
I encourage you to please pray for him, also. This threat is not some theory. It is for real!!!
