I am not someone who signs on to every moronic conspiracy that flies around the net….but recently I read something that made me stop and think about a couple of things that had been happening over the last year…..
Remember Jade Helm? That was a military exercise that made the Right go batcrap crazy….the government was accused of actually trying to takeover certain areas by force…..do you remember the term now?
Really! But in case you are scratching that empty head….I can help….
Jade Helm is a multi-state training exercise taking place July 15 through Sept. 15 with members of U.S. Army Special Operations Command and service members from the military’s four branches. While the exercise is taking place across seven states, the Special Operations Forces are only training in five states: Texas, Arizona, New Mexico, Utah and Colorado.
In a March 24 press release from the Army, Jade Helm 15 was described simply as a “routine training exercise to maintain a high level of readiness.” The reason given for picking out the particular states, including Texas, is because each possesses a “unique terrain” that soldiers might find themselves operating in overseas.
People in Texas were sent into a flying rage saying that the government was basically declaring martial law and taking over the state….so the governor put the Texas national guard on alert to monitor the actions during this exercise….
These types of exercise are nothing new…..nothing at all….
After thinking about all the concern I figure it there is a disaster then there will be a need for the military to step in and keep law and order….I mean think about it…..if there is some sort of Apocalypse there will be those ya-hoos that will want to take advantage, right?
Okay I realize that I may be sounding like a conspiracy nut……and I would agree but after I read a piece I got to thinking that there was more to the exercise than we actually knew…….
If a giant solar flare hit the Earth, it could knock out the entire power grid, meaning no more new Taylor Swift singles, no more televised presidential debates, and no more Facebook photos of babies. But it wouldn’t be all good news. The Washington Post reports the elecromagnetic pulse—or EMP—created by such an event could wipe out electricity for months on end, creating a global catastrophe. That’s why the White House released its National Space Weather Strategy on Thursday. According to the Houston Chronicle, the multiagency plan details how the US will prepare for—and deal with—a massive EMP from space. The six-step plan requires government agencies, schools, the media, the insurance industry, nonprofits, and more to work together. In other words: We might be doomed.
“This is a real and present danger,” the White House’s assistant director for space weather tells the Post. Back in 1859, the sun whacked the Earth with a large EMP. At the time, it only caused some sparking telegraph lines, but the National Academy of Sciences says something like that today could have a $2 trillion economic impact. Something like that almost did happen in 2012, when NASA says we were nearly hit by two large plasma clouds. “If it had hit, we would still be picking up the pieces,” one physicist says. The White House’s new plan calls for the US to get better at predicting space weather, shore up our infrastructure against EMPs, and more, the Chronicle reports. According to the Post, the plan isn’t a moment too soon, as NASA states there’s a 12% chance we will be hit by a massive solar flare in the next 10 years.
Put the two stories together and I am beginning to see something that is not very attractive…..
Surely I am not the only person that put these two stories together……
Maybe I’m just paranoid?
