The one man most seen in this discussion is Frank Gaffney from the Center for Security Policy. Iran’s state-run media said on Tuesday that its navy has sent warships to the Atlantic Ocean — a historic first for the Islamic Republic. The navy sent in the Sabalan destroyer and the Khark logistic helicopter carrier, The Associated Press reported.
The Iranian media outlet reported that aboard the ships were 30 or navy academy cadets who were taking part in training exercises, as part of the overall military mission, AP said. Sailing warships to the Atlantic is a first, and it comes less than two years after Iran vowed to do just that.
Seventy-five years ago this week, the media perpetrated a massive hoax on an unsuspecting American audience. A jaded television population may be inclined to disbelieve a seemingly equally unimaginable horror story broadcast on October 27, 2013 by National Geographic. The film uses simulated cellphone footage to recount how ordinary folks try to cope with the loss of access to food, potable water, medicine, transportation, their bank accounts and telecommunications.
But is an enduring loss of the power essential to operate our critical infrastructure science fiction? Worse yet, it is a certitude that, at some point in the not too distant future, intense solar flaring will cause geomagnetic disturbances that can cause some of the same deadly disruptions to our grid, and the critical infrastructure the relies upon it, as man-caused EMP. The good news is that, unlike a surprise attack by Martians, there are steps we can take to prevent or greatly reduce the horrifying consequences of long-duration blackouts due to electromagnetic pulse, cyber attacks and terrorism. If we work now to protect our electrical infrastructure against direct physical attack, electromagnetic pulses and cyberwarfare, we can build in the resiliency that is required in a world in which enemies of this country might be tempted to take advantage of the grid’s weaknesses.
Whatever the cost, it is trivial compared to the toll that we will have to pay in lives and treasure if we fail to take corrective action before the grid goes – and stays – down.

The AFIO Fall Luncheon will be held at The Crowne Plaza, 1960 Chain Bridge Rd, McLean, VA 22102. American Blackout is a fictional account of a 10-day blackout following a cyber attack and is now showing on the National Geographic Channel.
Rick Warren’s Membership in Council on Foreign Relations – One World Religion Agenda?? Storyline: Chronicles the recurring patterns of disenfranchisement witnessed from 2000 to 2004 while following the story of Georgia Congresswoman Cynthia McKinney, who not only took an active role in investigating these election debacles but also found herself in the middle of one after publicly questioning the Bush Administration about the 9-11 terrorist attacks.

There are more than 140 million electric customers, spanning homes, businesses and industries.
Seventy percent of key power grid components are more than 25 years old and the average age of power plants tops 30 years. Many experts refer to the electrical grid as America’s “glass jaw” and worry about a well-placed attack’s ability to cripple our infrastructure. If you are concerned about a power grid failure and you want to do your own research on what you could do to prepare, you can visit these links to a find a ton of articles on the subject.
My personal blog is Ed That Matters, where I write about preparedness and from time to time, education. So while viewers reflect on the importance of electricity, it’s a good opportunity to spare a thought for the 1.2 billion people around the world who live without electricity, many in conditions of extreme poverty. Of course, American Blackout does not directly address energy poverty in sub-Saharan Africa (or elsewhere). They told us two years ago they were going to put a task force into the Atlantic, it took a lot longer than they planned, and sure enough, as the story below indicates, they now are heading toward American shores. Below this short report on Iran is his discussion over the recent National Geographic show “American Blackout.” The question again is, why now is the discussion becoming more frequent? The specifics of the military mission and the ports of call — if there were any – were not mentioned in the report.
As part of that effort, the nation’s deployed several warships off the coast of Africa in recent months to fight pirates near the Gulf of Aden and to protect ships sailing on commercial reasons. In 2012, the nation vowed it would have warships placed in international waters near the coast of the United States within a few years. A Halloween radio broadcast of Orson Welles’ rendering of the sci-fi thriller War of the Worlds sent the public into a frenzy over seemingly authentic news reports that martians were attacking New Jersey.
A docu-drama entitled “American Blackout,” portrays what would happen if the power went out – and stayed out for 10 days – due to a cyber attack on the nation’s electric grid. The nightmare of an America without electricity is at least as frightening as one caused by aliens. William Graham, if the power goes out and stays out for as long as a year – something that is a distinct possibility should a far-reaching EMP event occur – nine out of ten Americans will be dead. For example, hardening the nation’s roughly 2,000 high-power transformers against EMP events is estimated to cost roughly $2 billion. That is the message of an important new video produced in the wake of National Geographic’s “American Blackout” and in lieu of an exercise known as GridEx II, to be sponsored next month by the electric industry – a drill that is supposed to simulate a widespread disruption of our electric power distribution system, but may fail to do so in a realistic manner.

Many thanks to those of you who came out to enjoy the many thought-provoking presentations, as well as those individuals who helped to make them happen! Some call Cynthia McKinney a civil rights leader among the ranks of Shirley Chisholm and Malcolm X. Like the NYC couple (least prepared), or the fact that the young adults waited days before trying to get off the elevator.
Help bring reliable electricity to 50 million Africans for the first time by signing our petition here. It could also be seriously damaged, and key components destroyed outright, by everything from terrorism to localized or widespread electromagnetic pulse (EMP) effects. Recent experiments suggest that new technology may make it possible to do so for a fraction of that amount.

In the program, it only takes about 10 days without power before things start getting apocalyptic. Without it, women give birth in dark hospitals, vaccines can’t be refrigerated, students can’t do their homework at night and society is more or less forced to shut down when the sun goes down.
For too many people on the planet, they don’t need a fictional dramatization of life without power.
