The nationwide power grid down drill known as GridX II revealed that America is vulnerable to an attack on its electrical system, with tens of millions of people potentially left in the dark for weeks if an attack materializes, preliminary results show. Off The Grid News readers are not likely shocked by the GridX II findings, but the hordes of Americans who go about their daily lives expecting the lights to always turn on with a flip of the switch should see this as a wake-up call. During the drill, government and electrical officials pretended that tens of millions of Americans were left in the dark and hundreds of transmission lines and transformers were damaged or destroyed, as a computer virus was injected into the system. The power grid is often called America’s glass jaw because of the nation’s reliability on it but also due to its many weaknesses, such as its vulnerability to a domino effect because it is interconnected.
An electromagnetic pulse attack (EMP), which could be used by a terrorist or a rogue nation. While only planned as an exercise, these scenarios could go live at any time, and may come from a terrorist attack inside the U.S. Dave Hodges, of the Common Sense Show, was among the only alternative media sites to report on the new round of GridEx exercises, and their potential to go hand in hand with fresh threats from ISIS (a proxy terror group that is sponsored by the West and Arab Gulf nations). Something virtually no one is talking about is that in three days November 19, 2015 GRID-EX III will be taking place here in the U.S. A grid down event could prove to be the false flag event that puts America into a martial law state of emergency, and the consequences could be extreme.
Rogue cells inside a legitimate drill could be used to take down power substations or in fact the entire grid, and the coordinated emergency response teams would play along in real time as if it were only a scenario.
An electrical grid joint drill simulation is being planned in the United States, Canada and Mexico. The SHIELD Act, which is stalled in Congress, is the first serious piece of legislation in many years to attempt to address the vulnerabilities of the power grid in. The disaster drill is being described as a crisis practice unlike anything the real power grid has ever experienced. The Times said experts call the power grid the nation’s “glass jaw.” Even the military gets 99 percent of its power the same way everyday citizens get it – from commercially run companies. Hebert also noted that during prior power grid drills, the scenario assumed the system would be up and running again relatively quickly after an attack. If the power grid fails, a lack of electricity and food delivery are only the first wave of troubles facing the American people.


I say when the national power grid falls, we take that opportunity to relieve these corrupt politicians from duty. For those of you interested in further reading, many ( myself included ) are overly sure that during the alleged drill, that an ACTUAL attack of the grid will occur. When the lights go out, make sure you have at least one extra flashlight attached to EACH weapon you have loaded ! The grid may be immune to hackers, but not to in-house programmers working at a given state’s power HQ.
13-14 discovered in no uncertain terms that much if not all of the United States would be left without power if a man-made or cosmic-type natural disaster hit the power grid. During the past three Congressional legislative sessions it has been suggested that the Federal Electric Regulatory Commission (FERC) be granted the power to regulate power grid operations, but a vote has never been taken.
One example would be a terrorist using something as simple as a USB thumb drive to upload a virus into power plant computers. Known as GridEx III, simulations will engage top energy executives and senior government officials, including those in Homeland Security, in scenarios for an attack on the power grid.
Nearly as threatening is a cyber attack, which could also take down the grid, or target any number of vulnerable substations across the country.
The previous GridEx exercises, which were held in November 2013 and November 2011, also dealt with similar threats. Many have contacted me believing that November 18th will mark the beginning of a devastating false flag event in which the power grid will be taken down.
Of course the main street news does not mention it but beyond that, the so called alternative media has been virtually silent about this drill. Thousands of utility workers, FBI agents, anti-terrorism experts, governmental agencies, and more than 150 private businesses are involved in the November power grid drill. As previously reported by Off The Grid News, a recent American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) report gave the power grid a “D+” when grading various pieces of infrastructure and public services in the United States. Some of the utility companies which oversee the power grid reportedly use “antique computer protocols” which are “probably” safe from cyber hackers,” The New York Times reported. They( the Elite, NWO, Bilderberg Group, Rothschild maniacs, world bankers, call them whatever you want, BUT DO CALL THEM SICK) appear to have used this particular scenario in the World Trade Center attacks, Sandy Hook School in Conn., recently the Boston Marathon Fiasco & several more !


The SHIELD Act, the first real attempt to enhance and protect the power grid, remains stalled in Congress. That was the premise for a novel by former US Senator Byron Dorgan, who believes America is vulnerable to an attack on the grid.
It would happen following the detonation of a nuclear bomb high above cities via a missile, frying the power grid. Many have expressed grave concern over the timing of GRID EX and what just took place in Paris. If you recall a couple years ago when the GRIX-EX II drill took place the alternative media was all over it. 13-14 will focus primarily on how governments will react if the electrical grid fails and, for instance, the food supply chain collapses. Since a few of the most recent catastophes have occurred the same time government had drills set up. We designed the grid itself to take major lightning strikes, there are lightning arrestors and surge suppressors on the equipment.
A physical attack could happen if someone uses a bomb or other explosive device to destroy essential equipment that often is located miles from cities and populations. A lightning strike is a form of EMP burst or pulse, as old as the grid is it wont go down for long on an EMP burst. Yes an operator or an emp device can take out a power generation plant, but nowadays all grids are fed from several sources, losing one, not a big deal. There is no momentary pulse device that can cause a long term blackout of a substantial portion of the grid. Unlike a grid strike, where you are going to know you were hit, they could poison vast water systems and not know till people started getting sick, then its in the system, too late.
