Suspected for years of plotting to dismantle the U.S. electric grid, American officials have confirmed that Iranian military brass have endorsed a nuclear electromagnetic pulse explosion that would attack the country’s power system.
American defense experts made the discovery while translating a secret Iranian military handbook, raising new concerns about Tehran’s recent nuclear talks with the administration.

The issue of a nuclear EMP attack was raised in the final hours of this week’s elections in Israel when U.S. authority Peter Vincent Pry penned a column for Arutz Sheva warning of Iran’s threat to free nations.

“Iranian military documents describe such a scenario — including a recently translated Iranian military textbook that endorses nuclear EMP attack against the United States,” he wrote.
A knowledgable source said that the textbook discusses an EMP attack on America in 20 different places.
Arizona Republican Rep. Trent Franks, who is leading an effort to protect the U.S. electric grid from an EMP attack, has recently made similar claims based on the document translated by military authorities.
Once sneered at by critics, recent moves by Iran and North Korea have given credibility to the potential EMP threat from an atmospheric nuclear explosion over the U.S.
Pry has suggested ways for Iran to deliver a nuclear attack: by ship launched off the East Coast, a missile or via satellite.
Either way the result could be destruction of all or part of the U.S. electric grid, robbing the public of power, computers, water and communications for potentially a year.

Frank Gaffney, founder and president of the Center for Security Policy, said the threat to the grid can also come from solar activity.
He has been pushing Washington and state governments to take the relatively inexpensive move to protect the electric grid, though his concern is from a nuclear attack by Iran or North Korea.
“It is increasingly frightening,” he said. “We have to get started on this.”
He noted that Iran’s top military leader recently announced that he was ready for war with the U.S.
“We are ready for the decisive battle against the U.S. and the Zionist regime,” Iranian Armed Forces Chief of Staff General Hassan Firouzabadi told Iran’s Fars News Agency in 2014.

Below is from Pry’s column that discusses an Iran EMP attack:

Iran armed with nuclear missiles poses an unprecedented threat to global civilization.

One nuclear warhead detonated at high-altitude over the United States would blackout the national electric grid and other life sustaining critical infrastructures for months or years by means of an electromagnetic pulse (EMP). A nationwide blackout lasting one year, according to the Congressional EMP Commission, could cause chaos and starvation that leaves 90 percent of Americans dead.
Iranian military documents describe such a scenario–including a recently translated Iranian military textbook that endorses nuclear EMP attack against the United States.
Thus, Iran with a small number of nuclear missiles can by EMP attack threaten the existence of modernity and be the death knell for Western principles of international law, humanism and freedom. For the first time in history, a failed state like Iran could destroy the most successful societies on Earth and convert an evolving benign world order into world chaos.

  1. I do not understand, barry the homo muslim god and it’s he-she drag queen are sure enough that iran is off the terrorist list. poor silly American sheople; to worship their homo’s or not?

  2. And yet as Kelleigh pointed out in her post, Obama’s Intel Report drops Iran from our terror threat list, while the American sheeple continue to snore away….

  3. I do believe that Kerry is our modern day Neville Chamberlain. We have friends that have prepped to the hilt. We, ourselves, have done minimal preparations. If an EMP happens, I don’t think any of it will do any good.
    Which leaves every person with just one thing to do: Settle where you will spend eternity.

  4. Iran is not our ally. The foreign policy of the Obama administration has been a disaster for which will paying for decades.

  5. And these are the people Obummer is negotiating with?! This is worse than treason…

  6. And these are the jackasses with whom we’re doing a generous nuclear deal? Democrats have no sense.

  7. The prissydent is the biggest fool of all ! He is so stupid he doesn’t see the world leaders are laughing at him ! Congress & Senate grow some major ba;;’s and IMPEACH this destroyer of America! HE THINKS HE KNOWS WHAT HE IS DOING BUT THE PEOPLE HE IS GIVING INTO KNOW HE IS A JOKE ! Shaking my head ~~~~~~~~~~

  8. Man I hope dear leader gets that nuclear deal before this happens.
    He will be so pissed when he read about this attack in the newspaper.

  9. We have been aware of the EMP threat to our national grid for many years. The first EMP destruction came in the 1800’s and was caused by the sun, and it burned out our telegraph wires. (Think of what could happen to our smart phones, to say nothing of X-Boxes and Play Stations. Oh, I almost forgot, our national defense system, too.) The grid could be protected at a cost today of five billion dollars. Such protection has also been known for years.

    • And I read an article not long ago that it wouldn’t take that much money to fix it but it’s being ignored, and I’d bet that’s purposeful.

  10. I wouldn’t bet against that. Years ago, a plan to solve the problem was almost passed, however, a Senator who wanted items included in the bill for her state prevented it. Of course, she was not the sole cause of the problem. My source is a credible guest speaking on Coast to Coast AM.

  11. I’ve known about the EMP false flag since the 1960’s (yes false flag. I knew someone who was a systems analyst contracting deep in gubmint spook shops. He left the US back in 1987 and have not heard from him since. During the late 70[‘s ho sais hat already had a radical USA hating negro that was being groomed to be president. He also mentioned the klintons bushes 2 illegal wars in the middle east. He and I also discussed the 25-30 nuke devices that are hidden in key US areas placed there by the shadow gubmint
    Funny how that scenario smells curiously like the plotline to the TeeVee series Jericho
    On the EMP attack I have heard that China, N Korea, Iran, Russia and Israel either already have the weapons or are under development for use against the US (with our gubmint’s nod and wink)
    Someone asked me if I still had all my vacuum tube ham radio gear, not I let y license expire and dumped all the equipment Tube electronic are fairly immune from EMP as are some military semiconductors made from gallium arsenide mostly used in hardened military electronics…..almost everything today is silicon

  12. The Liar in Chief keeps kissing our enemies keesters! At the same time he is cutting back the American military which he had already damaged with his P.C. social engineering. America is just a few steps from over with. I dread for my Grandsons.

  13. So many fools in the world. Things are never as they seem through the looking glass. All politicians and media paint false pictures. There is no truth in news. EMP is a large hoax. All records of it going WAY back prove it. It has no affect on vehicles. And what effect it has on the power grid is small enough to NOT justify doing it. They are making you people PARANOID. Just like Hitler did his own people. LIES LIES LIES.
