I talk a lot about stress and worry.
And what it can do to your health and well-being.
Sometimes I believe it’s a good idea to step away from the TV and the news just to get your head clear. There’s often so much noise and bad news that soaking in it just isn’t healthy.
This isn’t one of those times.
I’m beginning to take the threat of North Korea to the U.S. seriously.
And here’s why…
Rogue nations like North Korea realize they can’t beat us with brute military force on the conventional battlefield. We’re too strong for that.
However there is one area where we are shockingly vulnerable…
Our electric grid.
The Pentagon is scrambling to protect America’s lifeline of power. Former CIA Director James Woolsey:
“According to the Congressional EMP Commission, a single warhead delivered by North Korean satellite could blackout the national electric grid and other life-sustaining critical infrastructures for over a year – killing nine of 10 Americans by starvation and societal collapse.”
President Trump is facing this threat head-on and he is not backing down. He told Reuters, “There is a chance that we could end up having a major, major conflict with North Korea. Absolutely.”
Our crumbling electric grid is a weakness that North Korea (or even Mother Nature) might try to use against us…
And when it eventually fails, it will be like watching America have a heart attack right before our eyes.
Richmond would be crippled in a matter of minutes, without an enemy having to fire a single bullet.
It’s a frightening idea… and worst of all, it may already be in the works…
On April 21, three major U.S. cities – New York, Los Angeles and San Francisco – experienced virtually simultaneous power outages. Businesses emptied. Schools closed. Subway commuters were stuck underground in the dark.
Rumors immediately started flying that a cyber-attack had caused all three blackouts.
The “official” word in San Francisco was that the outage was caused by a fire in a substation. In Los Angeles, high winds were blamed. In New York, an equipment failure was the announced culprit.
Perhaps those were the real causes. Or maybe these simultaneous blackouts were dry runs for future attacks.
We may never know the truth.
Scary? You bet.
Even former CIA official Dr. Peter Pry says, “that attacks on just 9 of the nation’s 55,000 electrical substations could result in nationwide blackouts for up to 18 months.”
If it’s not obvious to you yet, the government is woefully unprepared for an attack on our electric grid.
They’ve ignored dire warnings from experts about the grid’s vulnerability to physical, electromagnetic pulse (EMP) and cyber-attack by ISIS and other terrorist groups.
Sure, we’d all survive if the power goes out for a few hours (or even a few days).
But an extended blackout would be devastating.
Imagine a blackout lasting not days, but weeks or months…
Not long ago when Karen and I were watching Harvey roll through Texas, our power went out for days. We were lucky. But others weren’t…
Their food spoiled. People were paying $3000 for a generator. It was hot down here in Texas, so no one had air conditioning or even a fan. It was miserable.
Some of our neighbors couldn’t pump any fresh water into their house. And even if you don’t have a well, a total grid failure means no fresh water to drink, cook, or clean with.
Pretty much all electronics were useless. No radio, TV, couldn’t charge a cell phone…
People were isolated and cut off from friends and family.
If you didn’t have a generator at the time, after that, you’d be silly not to start thinking about getting one…
Sadly, this kind of thing is NOT science fiction or some crazy doomsday theory…
It happened in Texas, it happened in Florida and in Georgia after these recent storms. And it could be even worse when it happens to you.
And that’s why I’m writing to you today…
Because if you’re like me, you like being prepared. You don’t want to be waiting in line for a handout from the government when stuff hits the fan.
Which is why I recommend you get yourself a good solar generator…
I’m partial to the Patriot Power Generator 1500 I have stored in my house.
It’s made by Frank Bates over at our sister company, 4Patriots.
It’s solar powered, and doesn’t need any gas so it doesn’t give off fumes or make noise (you want a quiet generator if you don’t want thieves trying to steal it)
Anyways, this thing is the real-deal, and could be a life-saver if your power goes out.
You can see the generator in action right here.
I’ve used my generator already, and it’s strong enough to power lights, a computer, TV, or cell phone.
It could even be used on crucial appliances like a small freezer or a critical medical device that you or your family might need during a power outage.
For me, this is all about peace of mind.
And that’s what this generator gives me.
Because if a crisis hits and all my neighbors are panicking, I know that my wife and I are safe.
The bottom line is that our electric grid is primed for an attack. Whether it’s by hackers, North Korea, Islamic extremists or simply a natural disaster.
And no matter how safe you think Richmond is, I can tell you it’s vulnerable to a power outage.
Which is why I recommend you watch this video by Frank right here.
Like Ted Koppel said “imagine if Hurricane Katrina or Pearl Harbor took over the whole country. That’s what it will be like when the electric grid is attacked.”
So I recommend you watch this video that Frank put together that shows you the why a solar power generator is exactly what you need to keep you and your family safe in case you find yourself without power…
You can watch that video right here.
