An EMP will damage electronics while a Solar Flare will damage the electrical distribution system (Hi th tension power lines/transformers). Either way there are enough people scattered with enough knowledge to generate localized power out of the scraps they can find.

I think the danger lies in a societal collapse whereas everything that is produced by electricity in mass becomes scarce; i.e. commercial farming, commercial water supply, gasoline powered equipment, etc.

if an enemy attacks the US with an enhanced nuke device – the concentrated destruction will be on the same level of a major solar flare – they’ll be looking to knock out protected gear buried in Cheyenne Mountain and elsewhere – it takes power to override the protection … there won’t be much left that’s unprotected or moderately protected …

Sealed up some of my moderate use electronics in expedient faraday shielding. Separately wrapped old iPhone, a portable DVD player, a Kindle that has my prepping library in it, plus my wife’s old Kindle in paper, then foil, then another layer of paper before placing into an aluminum chafing pan, then covered that with heavy duty aluminum foil. Hopefully that’s enough if NK’s weight challenged leader :crazy: really does have an EMP device….

Oh, and I sealed my last trash can faraday cage with aluminum tape, again same reason. Other cans had been sealed for months, but last one had battery packs that I charge periodically. Sealed for now, until latest crisis blows over or the balloon goes up.

Heading to market on way home to top off some canned goods I used this weekend. I want to be as buttoned up as I can be for April 25th, since it’s a military holiday for NK.

you should go to steel wool instead of the aluminum tape – having to replace it everytime you access the Faraday Cage …. in a SHTF with EMP/solar flare potential you’ll be in and out constantly ….

Surely it will be different this time “we have Safe Zones” and we will not return to normal human behavior! I am certain the “In Betweens”, as well as women and children will be treated as they are now in all areas of conflict!

One BIG difference in those areas of conflict and here…in those areas, the average person (female or otherwise) is NOT armed, and therefore hove no good way to defend/protect themselves. Here, on the other hand, quite a few women are VERY well armed, and know darned good and well how to use those arms. Especially in my area.

the very few women and angry tough old people that can take care of themselves will skew the percentages ever soooo slightly …. it’s still the old and the young dying off …. females will die in bigger number than males – it’ll 5-6 guys or more per surviving female

So there has been much talk on here about EMP strikes. An EMP strike can be manmade and can occur as a terrorist strike or as an attack from an enemy nation but it can also be a natural occurrence brought on by activity from the sun. Various methods for dealing with EMP strikes have been discussed such as faraday cages and so forth. I imagine an EMP strike would be much less extreme than this video link Im posting here but Im wondering if it would be anything like this- https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gHUqNCDwQj4

an EMP and a solar flare (Carrington Effect) have similar results/damage – but are totally different …. Mother Nature has more potential than man can even muster in a nuke – she can throw back the entire world a couple of centuries in a second – then follow up with an even worse hit …

Anyway, there is the threat of a manmade EMP attack from an outside nation but there is also the possibility of an EMP disaster resulting from natural causes, such as certain activity from the sun.

all well and good until the facts trip you up – WW2 started in the early 1930s with Japan’s invasion and raping of Manchuria …

all the follow up trade sanctions against Japan was in response to their continued aggression – the sanctions weren’t done soon enough to stop Japan from building their war machine ….

For most people it seems they have the group that would be protected when SHTF, which includes their immediate family, spouse, children… and sometimes some of their close friends. Every group wants a doctor, or at least a veterinarian, and someone who was or is Military, and a farmer. My question is for those who are new to prepping to be answered by those who have experience. How do you tell who to add to your group? Did you make a list and specifically become friends with people who fell into those category’s? Did you just meet at church? And what if someone who has a high priority on your list comes with the requirement that because of their skill their unskilled spouse, or children need to come with? Why would I exclude having a doctor in my group just because his late wife left him with two young children? Or, should I not accept a doctor who comes with an Entitled spouse? It seems as if within every group there are the Alpha Males…would you join a group if you were not considered the Alpha? Why/ why not? What would you do if someone wanted to join your group, had provisions, and no skills?

there’s more to consider than just their profession or a skill – one of the last things you’ll need is a uber liberal that has sway with your group … you’d be better off with group that has the same values and viewpoints that you can trust – than the most highly skilled & trained bunch of backstabbing pain in the azzes ….

Yep nothing says respect us like killing a bunch of people with little or no evidence.

and Hellery serving as proxy for absent & lazy Obammy bombed Libya for months – for what?

Billy Bob zippered up long enough to Tomahawk a few locations after the first World Trade Center attack – instead of actually doing something presidential – and what happened on 9/11?????

I’ll take a president that takes action over 9 Holes and a Blow Job Billy any day ….

this action puts the cherry on top of Prez Trump’s agenda – new boss – new sheriff – no more bull ….

he’s been quietly mending the Middle East fences that Obammy either busted down or simply neglected and allowed to rot away … just about everyone has been contacted in one fashion or another – Egypt & Jordan had their White House visit …. Kushner and military envoy paid an Iraq visit … HUGE HUGE acceptance across the board – there’s actually someone answering the phone in the Oval Office
