Within a very short span of time yesterday, the computer systems of United Airlines, the New York Stock Exchange and the Wall Street Journal all went down. Was it a coincidence? I think not and coupled with the capture of personnel records of over eighteen million current and former federal employees, it is becoming clear that all information about we Americans is up for grabs.
Nobody wants to talk about it but the potential danger from large scale hacking is huge and nothing is more susceptible than our national electrical grid system. A number of security experts have indicated this in hearings and the cost of protecting it has been mentioned in the two billion dollar range, yet to our knowledge, absolutely nothing is being done to protect it. With all of the waste and giveaways that is synonymous with Washington, you'd think they would have the willpower to beef up grid security but, no, they seem to be little concerned.
Couple this with a financial system that is borderline bankrupt despite the rosy government reports as well as the potential for an electromagnetic pulse (EMP) attack by a rogue nation and we have never been under such a monstrous threat. And worse, unlike our forebears who were quite self-sufficient, we are absolutely slaves to electricity and the automobile, without which we are lost. So what will each of us do if and when the power goes off, the money becomes worthless and you can't get gas for your car?
That was the topic of last night's show. We tried to point out some of the things that Americans need to be talking about and planning for. You just can't be too prepared for what may befall us. I hope you'll listen in and think about it while you can. Here's the link:
Don't be afraid, be prepared and with God in our heart we'll figure it out. Americans have always been resourceful and we can be again, but we can't just sit silently by and hope for the best. God bless.
