Effects of Nuclear Detonations - Study

I recently received a challenge to present information specific to the effects of nuclear detonations. To the point, it was a challenge to present data sufficient to confirm or deny my own assertions, regarding the accuracy of specific claims made by another.

The source material for the data presented to, well, basically the entire Twitterverse, was a video posted on YouTube by an M.D, who has very strong feelings about the results of a nuclear exchange. While I keep certain

No Knock Raids, Cops & Robbers

Anyone that is not aware of the use of Police “Dynamic Entry” tactics during so-called no-knock raids needs to be aware of them.

Why?

Because the bad guys use those same tactics when conducting HOME INVASIONS. That’s right. The bad guys dress up as “good guys” and smash down doors yelling “Police!” The idea is that YOU won’t shoot a cop, and thusly will allow said bad guys the few SECONDS they need to secure your home for themselves. Playing

EMP Methods and Preps - Part III

For previous parts of this series, see:

EMP Methods and Preps – Part I

EMP Methods and Preps – Part II

In the first two parts of this series, I laid out why I believe the threat of an EMP attack on the United States is both possible, and feasible. The returns to the attacker far outweigh his investment in time, technology and the sacrifices among his personnel. I described how certain advances in technology and materials allow attackers to

Book Review -Prepping for a Suburban or Rural Community: Building a Civil Defense Plan for a Long-Term Catastrophe

Met a guy on Twitter. I had posted a tweet somewhere along the lines of “Civil Defense begins with YOU”. His response was to invite me to read his new book.

Yeah. Sure.

I don’t respond to many invitations, and for good reason. But something about his premise interested me – because it included as part of its foundation an EMP strike. So, I trotted over to Amazon and read what I could of the “Look Inside” feature. The material

A Reply to a YouTube Series of Vids

A reply to a series of videos from a YouTube user by the name of StankMouthCharlie.

Stank Mouth posted a quartet of videos with the title “Why Most Doomsday Preppers Will Die.” They can be found here:

In Charlie’s series, he covers a number of issues relating to the foolishness of prepper stockpiling, training, bugging in or out, marksmanship, manliness, shelters and retreats – all in the face of predatory “gangs” or “posses” with skills and

EMP Attack Threat - North Korea

I’ll preface this posting with the following:

I don’t believe North Korea has an EMP device, or a nuke large enough to do the job, or a delivery system powerful enough to properly position the weapon. I also believe we possess the ability with THAAD and other systems to destroy any missile launched under threat circumstances.

On the other hand…. I am increasingly wary of that “satellite” they put up recently and its low orbit, 17 second period rotation “blinder”.

A Brief History of Drones, by John Sifton

Here is an article published in Feb 2012, just over a year ago. It makes for good reading.

http://www.thenation.com/article/166124/brief-history-drones

It was ten years ago this month, on February 4, 2002, that the CIA first used an unmanned Predator drone in a targeted killing. The strike was in Paktia province in Afghanistan, near the city of Khost. The intended target was Osama bin Laden, or at least someone in the CIA had thought so. Donald Rumsfeld later explained, using the passive

The Census Dot Map

Every once in a while, someone comes up with a neat little internet tool that causes the mind to wander into dusty territory. Looking at this map might remind you of the pictures from space showing lights at night on various continents. It might remind you of how crowded some locations are. Or, it may reinforce your thoughts on bug-outs and roaming hordes.

The Census Dot Map is most useful with “Toggle Labels” on, and of course, zoomed in to

The Real Direction of Drones Overhead

Higher and higher, smarter and smarter and with better eyes than any eagle could ever evolve. I’ve been talking about drones for private use for a while now. Well, here is some information about government drones and your privacy. Keep in mind while looking at this information, that the technology discussed is already in use, with the distinct possibility of having already been replaced with superior equipment. The advancement of technology knows no end point.

Here are some links I

EMP Attack will Destroy Infrastructure in Cascading Fashion

This article takes the EMP concerns many have and increases their numbers. The key to the initial event leading to massive destruction in secondary and tertiary events is the SCADA infrastructure present just about everywhere. The Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition systems are responsible for the control and operation of natural gas lines, oil refineries, dams and water system flow, electrical grid power flow and more. Give this article a read. It passes my “smell test” handily.

Think EMP Would
