Government Preparing For Power Grid Shutdown

(Thomas Dishaw)  If you haven’t noticed there has been a lot of talk regarding the power grid lately.  Highly ranked Government officials continue to go on record warning us that we are in imminent danger of a looming strike on the grid.

Major agencies  have issued warnings to the general public advising us to stock up on necessities and reminding us that our basic way of life will be drastically affected when a strike like this occurs.  Hurricane Sandy was a great example of this when gas tanks were unable to pump gas, light switches refused to turn on the lights and home heating systems failed to keep families warm.

Since the Government likes to “keep us safe “, they are coincidentally preparing a massive drill emulating an attack on the power grid.

Off The Grid News reports the drill will take place November 13-14:

An electrical grid joint drill simulation is being planned in the United States, Canada and Mexico. Thousands of utility workers, FBI agents, anti-terrorism experts, governmental agencies, and more than 150 private businesses are involved in the November power grid drill.

The downed power grid simulation will reportedly focus on both physical and cyber attacks. The antiquated electrical system in the United States has been one of the most neglected pieces of integral infrastructure.

The disaster drill is being described as a crisis practice unlike anything the real power grid has ever experienced. The GridEX II drill Nov. 13-14 will focus primarily on how governments will react if the electrical grid fails and, for instance, the food supply chain collapses.

American utility companies are responsible for running approximately 5,800 power plants and about 450,000 high-voltage transmission lines, controlled by various devices which have been put into place over the past decades. Some of the utility companies which oversee the power grid reportedly use “antique computer protocols” which are “probably” safe from cyber hackers,” The New York Times reported.

The Times said experts call the power grid the nation’s “glass jaw.” Even the military gets 99 percent of its power the same way everyday citizens get it – from commercially run companies.

“If an adversary lands a knockout blow, [experts] fear, it could black out vast areas of the continent for weeks; interrupt supplies of water, gasoline, diesel fuel and fresh food; shut down communications; and create disruptions of a scale that was only hinted at by Hurricane Sandy and the attacks of Sept. 11,” The Times said.

I don’t know about you but a Government drill or exercise always makes me wonder about the ability to pull off a false flag attack, similar to the way 9/11 was orchestrated.  A Government attack like this is definitely not out of the question and  I wouldn’t put it past them. My only advice would be to prepare by stocking up on basic necessities that will enable your survival in this desperate time.

    Pure conjecture and straw arguments does not prove anything.

    It just makes the author look stupid.

    The author did not offer any evidence of anything (other then being a moron).

    • PJ London

      9-11, USA drill on Airplanes being used as weapons, NORAD stepped down: 7-7 UK reaction drill on multiple bombs on underground and transport.
      In both cases, response teams in place before the event.
      For examples of looking stupid and being moron, consult your nearest mirror.

      • WagTheDawg

        A similar “dupe” drill was taking place at the Boston Marathon bombing.

      • Rolliby

        After 9-11 (1st attack), UK had the train bomb attack – was conducting a “drill to emulate an attack on the train system”. Just like 911 air responders and Boston Marathon drills coincidentally “drilling” for the exact disaster that was actually happening.
        How many times are you going to fall for that?

        • PJ London

          Hi Rolliby,
          I did not fall for it the first time, as the footage of the WTC building coming down was shown, I said that is B******t, pure Hollywood.
          I am not sure why you are asking me the question.

      • lattermanstudio

        Response teams where in place at the Boston bombing – BEFORE it happened…. someone documented a whole block of ambulances in place with engines running just around the corner from the bombing….. just another example – I don’t really think anything will come of this Grid X drill as there has been too much hype about it and they don’t stage terror events when people generally already know they have a drill going on…

  • Keri Green

    Oh Janet Janet you Madame have a special place in Hell, with your name on it. You have lied, manipulated and planned the killing and destruction of the American people. Under your watch you have stocked piled billions of bullets to kill innocent Americans. People that don’t bow down to your messiah Obama and his One World Order Agenda. You can run and you can hide but you WILL be held accountable for you TREASONOUS EVIL acts .

    • Austin

      Go get your dose checked, it is to high or to low, but in either case, you are fucking crazy

      • Tom

        *too ;)

      • David McElroy

        No, Keri Green is right, Janet Napolitano is evil. I lived in Arizona when that butch bitch was governor, and US Attorney before that. As FEMA director, she found her calling, oppressing all of America under her fascist boots!

  • Wessley Jauron

    this all coincides with what there not talking about. ironically you notice who is giving this warning. NASA, what there not saying which correlates perfectly with this is the passing of the so called comet ISON who many astronomers believe is much more then a comet. there is lots of information on the subject on utube. go draw your on conclusions. If this is in fact the planet Marduk of the Sumerian tales you will see it in the day light and will be red and ruddy to the naked eye. this was once called the winged destroyer whose elliptical orbit around the sun which passes in between us and mars every 3.600 years. some claim that it was the cause of the biblical deluge. at any rate i would take this warning as the gospel this is the first time ive come across any warning in regards to this event, there not coming out and telling you the truth in regards to what is happening, this would explain the huge purchase of MRE and water by the Department of home land security, that must be delivered by November first. no leaves will be granted to military personnel during this time also. follow the trends there’s a reason for all of this don’t dismiss it, stock up , be prepared

    • Phun Phor-U

      “…that must be delivered by November first. no leaves will be granted to military personnel during this time also…”
      SORRY FRIEND, you are a month late on this.

      • trimmer

        Umm…that post you are replying to is 2 months old.

    • Shnook

      Finally, someone in the AWARENESS! My thoughts are the same! I just don’t get the level of complacency and ignorance in this world. Most actually trust the powers that be….how ignorant! They refer to us as necessary idiots! I’m a vet and I can tell you first hand we are nothing but desposible scum to the machine! Look at all the wars, wasted money and complete debacle of the entire VA and government. Its all a really bad b rated movie script being played out. The incompetent believe that they actually care about us, but they have been foiled and will only realise it when they see the thing in the sky for themselves and by then it will be too late. Prepare for your own sake people! It’s your only hope!

  • Wessley Jauron

    this goes hand in hand with the article from this website called “Fema making mass deliveries ” and FEMA scrambles for storable food contacts patriot company for emergency delivery…… pay attention because they wouldnt be acting like this if it wasnt true

  • Wessley Jauron

    I just got done reading some of these posts and I agree with most of what the skeptics are saying but this is different there is actual science and proof of what is on the horrizon so before you go and tell me Im crazy do your home work, then tell me im crazy. but dont start your verbatim until you can back up your words …….All Im saying is it doesnt hurt to prepare……………….

    • Dixie Darling

      yes, it is good to prepare but what about the people on a fixed income that can barely afford their day to day living expenses, the ones that can see what is really going on because they do their research but don’t have any “extra” to be able to prepare?

      • kim

        We are screwed, that’s what. I’m in your same boat, and we are the ones who they are already considering “collateral damage”. They expect us to die, as hard as that is to accept. They don’t care. It’s nothing personal– to them!

      • Wendy Wagner

        Rice and beans and a simple understanding of “primitive” weapons. Of course don’t go thinking you can last long in the city.

  • B. Richards McIntyre

    The thing is, I know Janet N personally and she really is not the one behind all the krazy kut up BS. She’s actually a really great and kool lady. Misunderstood as many of us are, yes. She really has no control over what they are forcing her to do. It’s cooperate or they’ll kill her and you can be sure it’ll look like an accident. Probably a suicide set up avec note stating that ‘she killed herself because she was always ashmed of being gay’. That would be right up ‘their’ alley. Their old, slimy, tan alley! But, the truth of the matter is, ‘they’, meaning the shadow government and ‘powers that think they are’ are in fact putting this plan into action. Winter of course will be the best time for them to implement this next inside job realness. Millions will suffer and die because of it. Mostly the elderly and immuno-compromised and those who are handicapped. Also those who just keep putting their heads in the dirt and denying, denying, denying that an-T-thing could possibly be ‘wrong’ or f’d up! Oh no, hunty! Our government loves us and would never do such a thing. Yeah, tell me that when your power goes off and you have no food, gas, vehicles or supplies ( and no hearth aka in modern English; a Fireplace ) and you’re freezing your arse off. Oh well. I’ve about washed my paws of all this junk since no one seems to listen or care except the few of us that are fully aware and awake. Humanity repeats history all the time. It’s happened for millions of years. We’re a species with amnesia as Hancock said. And perhaps our ET makers had just that in mind when they made us. Make them keep repeating their stupid mistakes until they finally get it. That’s my thought anyway and the reason why we come back to this earthly dimension time after time. It’s called reincarnation my friends. We’ve all done it. Too bad some folk just don’t believe it and would rather cling to their false idols and false Monotheistic, Organized Religion. As I said, Oh well, I’ve had it……..sorry about it! When you’re ready to do something about it, call me, write me, beat me up, make me write good and bad checks or just accept me as a friend to those in need – Lux Me Fecit – BRMc

      Well, I wish the heck someone would read my post as late as it may be! I somehow don’t think my post was liked too much by the moderator(s). It’s dead last.

    • Wessley Jauron

      Sir let me be the first to say that you are a sight for sore eyes, because you grasp what is happening… I believe there is still a chance to turn this tide around before it gets bloody. But we have to reach critical mass before it will work, We know who is responsible and all of there cohorts will be dealt with swiftly… keep the faith in knowing that there is still opportunity to do this peacefully… For all those who no means to support yourselves I suggest in community type units where you can trust those to be looking out for your interests as there own, because alone you wont make it but to a fema camp ..

  • marlio

    Well if the government had chosen tesla energy instead of funding the greedy gas companies, so they could get kick backs, we wouldnt be in this predicament. Money seems to corrupt your minds if you aren’;t a Christian I fear.

  • marlio

    I think they are satanist and their minds are really twisted.

  • miltfarrow

    That pig is now going to be rewarded for her treachery by heading a large university, her counterpart Jane Harmon Left Congress too quickly to suit me, If you notice ( as well as croaking in office) a lot are leaving “whil they still can” Jane Harmon given the presidency of the Woodrow Wilson school for “puke residents”

  • marlio

    How long will this drill last and why didn’t they plan it to take place in the late summer or early sept?

    • Major

      Because its easier to freeze and starve a country whos citizens are armed to the teeth than to fight & disarm them. Our country will turn into a self cleaning oven. In the “big picture” we are a problem that needs to be (dis)solved. This could all go wrong even if the gubmints intentions are good. Given the timing, my bets are against

  • Robert Downer

    any such drill would be on the fema website i don’t buy it all these doomsday theories that come from the same people who made up planet x and all that 2012 hype

  • ctuton

    Notice what is being left out of all of these warnings of power grid take down. First, what is being pushed:

    1) EMP (solar EMP and hostile force EMP)

    2) hostile (domestic and foreign) physical action (destruction of physical grid components)

    3) hostile (domestic and foreign) cyber action via Internet and direct injection of malware via USB and other devices

    What is not being talked about:

    4) hostile (domestic and foreign) cyber action via the IT developers and support personnel who design, code and maintain the grid computer/control systems

    5) hostile domestic cyber action via the US government cyber warfare teams to false flag or to paralyze civilian communications and movement during martial law

    4 and 5 are the elephants in the room nobody is discussing.

  • Kevin Pevehouse

    You know what “drills” mean don’t ya?

    Means a parallel operation that is “LIVE” will be running along side it.
    No Mystery.

  • Wendy Wagner

    Our biggest concern should be that a nuke is set off above us (enter Iran with plans to do exactly that), and our power grid suffers damage from a nuclear EMP. There is nearly nothing that can be done to defend our grid from this; short of going underground with every foot of transmission line. Even that would not stop damage to above ground installations. Every un-shielded computer or transformer would be fried in a heartbeat.
    Some of the comments in here sound more like a push to take private control of our grid from private companies and put it in government hands. As a long time member of a rural co-op I can tell you that I have no desire to pay higher electric rates while being regarded as a burden to the system.
    This sounds like another step towards Aagenda 21 to me.

    Unity people, not division. Its bigger than what people argue about. Its us against them…get your lives together

  • IAmAProudAmerican

    Our electric company is doing a 6.5 hour power outage on November 12. Guess they didn’t get the memo! They’ve done this before too.
