The U.S. could lose a war against North Korea if North Korea strikes first with an EMP attack. So says an EMP expert to a recent Congressional panel. Removal instructions are below.

Joke Du Jour

A very mud-streaked and dirty little boy came in from playing in the yard and asked his mother, "Who am I?" Ready to play the game, his mother said, "I don't know! Who are you?" "Wow!" cried the child. "Mrs. Johnson was right! She said I was so dirty, my own mother wouldn't recognize me!”

I'll Make Her an Offer That She Can't Refuse

How North Korea Might Defeat the U.S.

If the war broke out, you and your family would statistically be fatalities, even if you lived 100 miles from the nearest big city. Here is some of the testimony of an EMP expert who recently testified before Congress:

Unbeknownst to most Americans, North Korea already possesses at least two satellites that orbit directly over North America. Conceivably, those satellites could already be carrying nuclear warheads and re-entry shielding, allowing North Korea to “drop” nukes into the atmosphere over North America.

By detonating those nukes at altitude (perhaps 150 – 500 miles high), an electromagnetic pulse (EMP) attack would be initiated that could take down the entire national power grid. A grid down scenario could kill 90% of the American people in the aftermath of a broken society. (I recently wondered why North Korea was so busy launching satellites.)

Ammunition Joke

It's already started at Cabela's Sporting Goods. When I was ready to pay for my purchases of gunpowder and bullets, the cashier said, "Strip down, facing me." Making a mental note to complain to the NRA about the gun control wackos running amok, I did just as she had instructed. When the hysterical shrieking and alarms finally subsided, I found out that she was referring to how I should place my credit card in the card-reader. I’ve been asked to shop elsewhere in the future. They need to make their instructions to us seniors a little clearer. I still don't think I looked that bad!!

North Korea, Part II

On May 8th, the House Homeland Security Subcommittee on Infrastructure conducted a hearing entitled, “Electromagnetic Pulse (EMP): Threat to Critical Infrastructure.” Testifying at the hearing was Dr. Peter Pry, a member of the Congressional EMP Commission and executive director of the Task Force on National and Homeland Security, told the Subcommittee that the issue is urgent because an EMP event could wipe out nine-tenths of the nation’s population through starvation, disease, and societal collapse.

In an op-ed to The Hill, Dr. Pry recently wrote: North Korea has nuclear-armed missiles and satellites potentially capable of electromagnetic pulse (EMP) attack. EMP is considered by many the most politically acceptable use of a nuclear weapon, because the high-altitude detonation (above 30 kilometers) produces no blast, thermal, or radioactive fallout effects harmful to people. EMP itself is harmless to people, destroying only electronics.

But by destroying electric grids and other life-sustaining critical infrastructures, the indirect effects of EMP can kill far more people in the long-run than nuclear blasting a city. In this scenario, North Korea makes an EMP attack on Japan and South Korea to achieve its three most important foreign policy goals: reunification with South Korea, revenge upon Japan for World War II, and recognition of North Korea as a world power.

Flying Joke

A man is sitting in the coach section of a flight from New York to Chicago and biting his finger nails and sweating profusely. Noticing his disturbed expression, a flight attendant walks over and says, "Sir, can I get you something from the bar to calm you down?" The man gives a nod of approval while shaking terribly.

She comes back with a drink and he downs it quickly. Ten minutes later, the flight attendant sees the same man shaking and biting his nails. She brings him another drink which he swallows immediately. A half hour later she returns to see that the man is shaking uncontrollably, and apparently crying.

"My goodness," the flight attendant says, "I've never seen someone so afraid to fly." "I'm not afraid of flying," says the man sobbing loudly, "I'm trying to give up drinking."

Finally There is Photographic Proof

You probably have money set aside for your retirement and for the cost of college for your children and grandchildren. It shouldn't all be invested in the stock market. In California, the first trust deed investment business is huge. A recent law change - the JOBS Act - now allows accredited investors nationwide to also invest in these same first trust deeds and first mortgages. Click here for more information.

North Korea, Part III

Revenge against Tokyo is a convenient rationale for someday attacking Japan. War against Japan will be necessary for the North to conquer South Korea, as Japan is an indispensable staging area for U.S. and allied forces defending South Korea.

North Korea's dictator, Kim Jong Un, is the scion of three generations of totalitarian rule, a megalomaniac and ruthless murderer described by state media as a demigod having supernatural powers. Kim’s strategy is to sever U.S. security guarantees to South Korea and Japan by raising the stakes too high—raising the specter of nuclear war—and through "nuclear diplomacy" to cow the U.S. and its allies into submission.

In this scenario, North Korea detonates a nuclear weapon at 96 kilometers HOB (height of burst) over Tokyo. The EMP field extends from the Japanese capital to a radius of 1,080 kilometers, covering all of Japan's major home islands. Virtually all of Japan's major military bases and seaports are covered by the EMP field, rendering them inoperable. Traffic control towers and systems are damaged and blacked-out stopping air and rail traffic. Highways are jammed with stalled vehicles. Communications systems are damaged or destroyed or in blackout.

Even worse, Japan's population of 126 million people is at risk because suddenly there is no running water or food coming into the cities. EMP induced industrial accidents are happening everywhere. Gas pipelines are exploding and turning into firestorms in towns and cities. Refineries and chemical plants are exploding, releasing toxic clouds and poisonous spills.

Tokyo knows from the experience of Fukushima that as the nationwide blackout becomes protracted, within days Japan's nuclear reactors will exhaust their emergency power supplies and begin exploding, contaminating the home islands with radioactivity.

First Day of School Joke

A child comes home from his first day at school. His mother asks, "Well, what did you learn today?" The kid replies, "Not enough. They want me to come back tomorrow."

Just Two Drops

North Korea, Part IV - We Possibly Lose

As a consequence of the EMP attack, Japan's critical infrastructures are paralyzed and incapable of transporting U.S. forces to aid South Korea. Indeed, with Japan's survival at risk, Tokyo would probably oppose any effort to help South Korea by U.S. forces staging from Japan, fearing another North Korean EMP attack.

The EMP field also covers the eastern half of South Korea, including the vital seaport of Busan (the key to South Korea's survival and U.S. victory in the last Korean War). All the eastern coastal seaports, and all military bases and airfields in the eastern half of South Korea (nearest Japan) are under the EMP field. The EMP field does not extend to North Korea.

Left uncovered by the EMP field are the western half of South Korea, including Seoul, the capital, and the major highway systems radiating around and from Seoul southward—the best invasion routes. Stalled traffic from the EMP will not be blocking Seoul or the highways. U.S. and South Korean forces covering the Demilitarized Zone (DMZ) will not be covered by the EMP field. The EMP field, in their immediate rear area, will cause cascading failures of the electric grid throughout the DMZ and the entirety of South Korea.

Thus, even those U.S. and South Korean forces not covered by the EMP field will be in a paralyzing protracted blackout that will cripple or deny allied forces communications, transportation, food and water, supplies and reinforcements from South Korean bases or from overseas.

The EMP attack creates conditions for North Korea's conquest of South Korea that are ideal. North Korean armor and infantry pours across the DMZ, thrusting through and around Seoul and down the coastal highways, flanking U.S. and allied forces paralyzed by EMP and unable to maneuver. U.S. nuclear missiles and bombers start blasting North Korea’s nuclear forces and underground bunkers where the Dear Leader may be hiding.

Now Kim Jong Un knows he has miscalculated. The U.S. is no paper tiger. In a final act of vengeance, Kim detonates the super-EMP warhead in his KMS-4 satellite, blacking out the United States. Airliners crash. Communications and transportation stop. Natural gas pipelines explode, causing firestorms in cities. In seven days, 100 U.S. nuclear reactors go Fukushima. In a year, most Americans are dead from starvation. The United States, Japan, South Korea, and North Korea are in ruins. Russia and China are the winners.

Dr. Pry ends with this admonition: "Mr. President, harden the U.S. electrical grid to defend against an EMP attack, and shoot down those North Korean satellites!"

Final Funny

The little boy wasn't getting good marks in school. One day he made the teacher quite surprised. He tapped her on the shoulder and said, "I don't want to scare you, but my daddy says if I don't get better grades, somebody is going to get a spanking."

North Korea - Post Script

The frightening scenario described above is not my invention, and I encourage you to google the subject. This testimony before Congress actually took place.

I remember thinking to myself earlier in the year, right after North Korea placed its second satellite into space, "What on earth are they doing? They couldn't just use Google Maps? There is something more going on here."

In the 1967 War, Israel's airforce struck first, wiping out in a single stroke most of Egypt's airforce. There is a precedent for first strikes.

Two days ago North Korea fired a missile over Japanese airspace. Terrified Japanese school children were rushed to ... well, there wasn't any shelter for them. Yesterday Nikki Haley, our ambassador to the United Nations, said that "North Korea was begging for war."

And if North Korea does use an EMP weapon to fry every electronic device in Japan and the southern portion of South Korea, what does President Trump do? Does he deliver his promised fire and fury? By doing so, does he doom us to absorb an EMP attack over the continental U.S.? Or does President Trump blink, allowing North Korean tanks to roll into Seoul? Remember what Steve Bannon said, "There is no military solution... they got us."

Is war with North Korea inevitable? Of course not; but the chances are no longer trivial. This morning I bought a three-month's food supply for my family from Amazon.com. Just like life insurance, I hope its a foolish waste of money.
