FEMA Is Preparing For A Solar Storm That Would Take Out The Grid

FEMA (Federal Emergency Management Administration) is planning for a massive solar storm that would be so strong, it would take down the power grid. Noting that the rare, yet ‘high-consequence’ scenario has ‘the potential for catastrophic impact on our nation and FEMA’s ability to respond.’
According to unpublished FEMA documents obtained by Government Attic, a FOIA (Freedom of Information Act) database and non-profit organization, the Department of Homeland Security agency once mapped out a disaster plan for the occurrence of another geomagnetic ‘super storm’ like the one the occurred in 1859.
Back then, the sun flung a giant plume of magnetized plasma out into space. The coronal mass ejection (CME), the sibling of a massive solar flare, traveled the 93 million miles between the Sun and Earth in only 17.6 hours. Today, it’s known as the Carrington Event and is remembered by the largest geomagnetic storm in the history of recorded space weather.

59% Of Brits Agree With Marxist Corbyn: Empty Luxury London Flats Should Be Used To House Homeless

With at least 58 dead (30 confirmed, 28 presumed), the Grenfell Tower fire in London is undoubtedly a disaster, but (riding high on his recent election gains) Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn’s solution for those made homeless by the fire seems to confirm his pro-Marxian perspective on life – government will seize the empty homes of rich people in Kensington to rehouse residents.
London police raised the probable death toll from this week’s tower block inferno to 58, amid mounting concern about U. K. Prime Minister Theresa May’s ability to deal with the fallout as protesters took to the capital’s streets.

Own the Night With This Essential Tool

3:00 a.m. – Location: Undisclosed
I’m seated on the deck of an MH-60 Black Hawk. My legs are hanging out the starboard door. I lean forward into the night, my weight supported by my anchored harness. The warm prop wash hits my face as we continue to slowly orbit the compound 500 feet below.
I’m intently scanning the city of green through my night vision goggles (NVGs). I train my rifle with infrared (IR) laser site, providing sniper cover as my team clears the structures beneath me.
If you own the night – you own the operation.
But you don’t have to be a member of an elite Tier 1 special ops unit to know that having the advantage in the night could mean all the difference. Night vision could be extremely valuable:
When hunting or camping In the event of a power disruption during a natural disasters During a home invasion When you don’t want to give up your position

Welcome To The Third World, Part 23: Illinois Death Watch

It’s been a long time coming, but Illinois’ slow-mo financial disaster is now front page news. A few recent examples:
Roadwork Could Shut Down Across Illinois Due To Budget Impasse
(Chicagoist) – Roadwork across Illinois may grind to a halt at the end of June due to the continued state budget impasse, a representative for the Illinois Department of Transportation (IDOT) announced Wednesday. IDOT will be unable to pay contractors on July 1, unless the state passes a stopgap funding measure. IDOT has told contractors that ‘all construction work is to shut down on June 30,’ according to a statement. ‘Contractors will be advised to secure work zones to ensure their safety during any potential shutdown.’
Illinois has gone almost two full years without a state budget, which has hit education funding throughout the state and generated more than $10 million in unpaid bills.
Summer is both a high-volume construction season and a vaguely ominous time to cease road repairs; just last week, IDOT released a statement warning that the heat could lead to pavement ‘buckling or blowing out.’

British Election Sends Shockwaves Felt Here and Abroad

Last week’s General Election in the United Kingdom was a disaster for the new conservative government of Prime Minster Theresa May. Having called the unnecessary “snap” elections in order to strengthen her political hand, the result actually reduced the number of seats held by the conservatives and delivered large gains to the opposition Labour party, which had seemed in disarray just a few months ago. Although she has announced no plans to step down, her position has been severely weakened, possibly fatally. More pointedly, the UK’s hand in negotiating favorable Brexit terms has eroded substantially. Besides creating significant ramifications for the European and global economy, the election also provides important lessons for the potential state of American politics.
In my mind, four main reasons explain the election. The first and most important was May’s crucial misreading of British voter sentiment. Like the surprise election of President Trump in November, last year’s Brexit Referendum revealed how deep anti-establishment sentiment has become. May failed to sense that this sentiment had shifted to her government which was seen, rightly or wrongly, as responsible for the country’s current malaise including low economic growth, mass immigration and local terrorism.

Grenfell Tower: A Tory Wicker Man ?

The week saw one of the worst urban disasters in recent history, as runaway fires consumed a low-income high-rise council estate in the London borough of Kensington and Chelsea. So far, police have confirmed 17 dead and are have indicated that they expect to find many more fatalities.

As the old adage goes, there are no natural disasters, only human ones.
But this horrific scene in west London symbolises much more than simple negligence. The image of a Wicker Man comes to mind.
Were low-income residents sacrificed at the altar of austerity, greed and corporate privatisation?
As North Kensington’s towering inferno continues to smoulder into the early morning, circumstantial evidence is beginning to emerge of showing how Conservative MPs sidelined legislation that would have required higher safety standards. According to reports, a group of Tory MPs have consistently voted against tenants’ rights including voting down Labour’s amendment to the recent Housing and Planning Bill which would have required landlords to make their homes ‘fit for habitation.’ Perhaps not surprisingly, the 72 Tory MPs who killed the legislation also just happened to be commercial landlords themselves.

UK Election Result: ‘Hung Parliament’, Farage Warns “Brexit Is In Trouble”

Live Feed:
In a somewhat shocking shift, Jeremy Corbyn is now the favorite at the bookies to become the next Prime Minister (despite the fact that Tories will likely remain the majority party – unless this is an absolute disaster)
Is this a premature call? Or is the market coming around to the idea that Theresa May and the Conservatives have got this horribly wrong?

The Comey Testimony is Great for Trump, Terrible For Democrats

The unanimous very smart person take on Trump’s firing of James Comey is that it’s a political disaster which will lead to total ruin and possibly his impeachment. I disagree.
The key factor that will determine how this ultimately turns out hinges largely on whether or not there was actual coordination between the Trump campaign and the Russian government to sway the election through hacking or other nefarious means. Personally, I don’t think there was, which is why I don’t expect Donald Trump to be removed from office. The consensus view right now is that Trump’s firing of Comey offers further circumstantial evidence that he’s trying to cover up coordination with Russia in order to end the ongoing investigation. This is certainly a possibility to consider, but it’s definitely not the only possibility, nor is it the most likely explanation.
– From last month’s post: The Consensus Echo Chamber Take on Trump Firing Comey is All Wrong
I’ve been warning incessantly for months that the Democratic Party is on the verge of blowing itself up in a mushroom cloud of Russia conspiracy theorizing. Many high profile Democrats, corporate media hacks and partisans of all shapes and sizes have spent Donald Trump’s first six months screeching about how the President is a Russian agent who conspired with Putin to rig the election against Hillary Clinton. Of course, if there is any truth to this claim Trump should justifiably be tossed from office. The problem is we haven’t seen any proof, most likely because none exists.

Trump’s Middle East Foreign Policy is a Disaster Waiting to Happen

Dear Qatar,
If anyone is going to sponsor terrorists it's going to be me.
Saudi Arabia
— Max Abrahms (@MaxAbrahms) June 5, 2017

Today’s post will focus on Trump’s recent visit to Saudi Arabia, a revolting spectacle which I could barely bring myself to follow. It all started Saturday morning as I tried to enjoy a beautiful day with my growing family and parents who were in town for a visit. My day was more or less ruined upon witnessing the appalling scene of Trump and his top advisors dancing with the rulers of the terrorist sponsoring state of Saudi Arabia while clutching swords. I’m sorry for doing this to you, but in case you missed it…
– From last month’s piece: America Has Become a Total Joke
The main thing we learned from Trump’s grotesque, orb clutching spectacle of a visit to the 9/11-funding absolute monarchy of Saudi Arabia, was that our demented President essentially green-lighted the Saudis to do whatever the heck they want in the Middle East. Considering Saudi Arabia is effectively being run by a 30-something princeling with sociopathic tendencies, absolutely nothing good can come of this. While Obama’s foreign policy in the Middle East was an unmitigated humanitarian and geopolitical disaster, it appears Trump’s doing his best to one up his predecessor.
Saudi Arabia is the most dangerous entity in the Middle East, and the writing has been on the wall for a long time. In fact, German intelligence warned about it back in 2015. As The Telegraph reported at the time:

Fukushima Remains “A Nuclear Radiation Nightmare”, In Pictures

“This is an accident that does not exist in the past tense, but in the present progressive form,” exclaimed Fukushima Gov. Masao Uchibori earlier in March, criticizing Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe for not explicitly the disaster in his annual speech. ‘It’s not possible to avoid using the important and significant terms of the nuclear plant accident of nuclear power disaster.’
As IBTimes’s Juliana Rose Pignataro notes (and exposes in the images below), it’s been an uphill battle for the coastal prefecture of Fukushima, Japan, since an earthquake and tsunami devastated the region in 2011, causing a nuclear disaster at its power plant.
Six years later, workers are still battling to decommission the plant, where radiation is deadly. Officials expect the cleaning won’t be finished for decades.

ITS YOUR FAULT! Why you are being blamed for these SHTF events!

The following video was published by FullSpectrumSurvival on Jun 5, 2017
Why do they want you to think these events are your fault? Who gains from this type of propaganda and prosecution of blame? What will be coming is an increase in raids, an increase in rhetoric that you are in danger and the events that back up this rhetoric to show you why you need these authoritarian, totalitarian and near dictatorship like powers pressed upon you!
Take action today. Learn how to garden, you won’t have to go to the market as much… Learn how to butcher your own meat and how to hunt, in the event of a larger disaster you won’t need to go get food… and learn how to gather information so that when your ability to turn on the tv is removed, you’ll still be able to know what is really happening in the world around you.
Our message is one of preparedness not fear! There is time to prepare! Start today.

Accept Islamic Terror As The New Normal?

Authored by Nonia Darwish via The Gatestone Institute,
“The use of terror under this doctrine [Targhib wal tarhib, “luring and terrorizing”] is a legitimate sharia obligation.” – Salman Al Awda, mainstream Muslim sheikh, on the Al Jazeera television show “Sharia and Life”. Part of the tarhib or “terrorizing” side of this doctrine is to make a cruel example of those who do not comply with the requirements of Islam. That is the reason Muslim countries such as Saudi Arabia and Iran, and entities such as ISIS, intentionally hold ceremonial public beheadings, floggings, and amputation of limbs. Islamic jihad has always counted on people in conquered lands eventually to yield, give up and accept terrorism as part of life, similar to natural disasters, earthquakes and floods. After terror attacks, we often hear from Western media and politicians that we must accept terrorist attacks as the “new normal.”
For Western citizens, this phrase is dangerous.
Islam’s doctrine of jihad, expansion and dawah (Islamic outreach, proselytizing) rely heavily on the use of both terror and luring. Targhib wal tarhib is an Islamic doctrine that means “seducing (luring) and terrorizing” as a tool for dawah, to conquer nations and force citizens to submit to Islamic law, sharia. It amounts to manipulating the instinctive parts of the human brain with extreme opposing pressures of pleasure and pain — rewarding, then severely punishing — to brainwash people into complying with Islam.
Most ordinary Muslims are not even aware of this doctrine, but Islamic books have been written about it. Mainstream Muslim sheikhs such as Salman Al Awda have discussed it on Al Jazeera TV. On a show called “Sharia and Life,” Al Awda recommended using extremes “to exaggerate… reward and punishment, morally and materially… in both directions”. “The use of terror under this doctrine,”‘ he said, “is a legitimate sharia obligation.”

Oliver Stone Slams “Disastrous” Trump Presidency, Warns America’s “Sleepwalking To A Nuclear Nightmare”

Academy Award winning director Oliver Stone told the Australian Broadcasting Corporation in an interview that President Donald Trump’s presidency has been a ‘disaster’ and that America ‘is sleepwalking toward a nuclear nightmare.’
‘This is a little too early to tell if Trump lasts, but it seems he’s not to be the kind of president who plans, who deliberates,’ Stone said in an interview, according to a Hill report.
The director made headlines in April when he bashed the president’s decision to launch 59 tomahawk missiles at a Syrian airfield – the type of militaristic solution he promised to avoid during the campaign.

The Arctic Doomsday Seed Vault To Save The World… Has Flooded Thanks To Global Warming

Having first been used in 2015 to save Syrian biodiversity, the Arctic stronghold for the world’s seeds – designed to rescue humanity in case of doomsday – has flooded after permafrost melts due to global warming. While no seeds were lost, The Guardian writes that the ability of the rock vault to provide failsafe protection against all disasters is now threatened by climate change.
As a reminder, on a remote island that is just 800 miles (1,300 km) from the North Pole, the Norwegian government has built a failsafe in the freezing cold that protects thousands of the most vital crops from extinction.

The deep state continually pushes their agenda to remove Trump. There is a battle going on and it is being waged right out in the open.

New Variant Of “WannaCry” Virus Emerges Infecting 3,600 Computers Per Hour

Update: according to the latest data from Check Point Software, cited by Reuters, a new variant of the WannaCry ransomware is now infecting on average 3,600 computers per hour.
BREAKING: Check Point Software says it found new variant of 'WannaCry' virus infecting 3,600 computers an hour
— Reuters Tech News (@ReutersTech) May 15, 2017

Governments and companies around the world began to gain the upper hand against the first wave of the unrivaled global cyberattack this morning.
More than 200,000 computers in at least 150 countries have so far been infected, according to Europol, the European Union’s law enforcement agency. The U. K.’s National Cyber Security Centre said new cases of so-called ransomware are possible ‘at a significant scale.’
“For now, it does not look like the number of infected computers is increasing,” said a Europol spokesman. “We will get a decryption tool eventually, but for the moment, it’s still a live threat and we’re still in disaster recovery mode.”
