Blackouts - international terrorism or geomagnetic storm?
why black-outs in 3 major US cities were almost certainly related
There remains a
strong possibility that the black-outs were acts of domestic or
the Duran, 22 April, 2017 Yesterday,
morning power black-outs hit three
major US cities in
two time zones. Areas of New York, San Francisco and Los Angeles were
hit by the still unexplained power cuts.
Francisco’s power supply is controlled by Pacific Gas and Electric,
most of Los Angeles is controlled by the Los Angeles Department of
Water and Power while other areas are controlled by Southern
California Edison and much of New York City is controlled by
other words, the power systems of the three cities, all of which are
either far or very far from one another are not connected in any way.
leaves only two logical possibilities and one illogical
possibility, which incidentally is the one that the mainstream media
is running with.
Coordinated black-out safety drill/test
anti-terrorist experts know that one of the most effective ways to
cause havoc in a major US city, especially one as de-centralised as
Los Angeles and other west coast cities, is to meddle with the power
supply or do anything else to cause chaos on the roads. Power
cuts can also be employed by terrorists to cause difficulties in a
dense and centralised US city like New York.
of this, the events of yesterday morning may have been a coordinated
safety drill, executed covertly to see how citizens and the security
services could cope.
it was, the New York Subway and
San Francisco BART metro system experienced severe delays as did
other forms of public transport. Traffic was also a total mess. For a
while power was completely lost at parts of Los Angeles International
Airport (LAX) one of the busiest airports in the world.
there were no riots and no injuries, this was possibly due to the
fact that the power-cuts did not last for a highly extended period of
black-outs lasted for the longest in San Francisco, the smallest of
the three major cities involved.
would be both foolish and dangerous to rule out terrorism. There is
every possibility that foreign or domestic terrorists managed to
either digitally hack-in or covertly penetrate crucial equipment that
controls the electricity in three major US cities. There is also a
real possibility that a combinational of digital and physical hacks
the terrorists too were doing their own ‘drill’ to see how much
chaos they could inflict with their devious tactics.
the events were almost certainly not a coincidence, it is essential
that the possibility of terrorism should be investigated. If a
terrorist agency is found responsible for this act, it would
represent the most geographically widespread (though of course not
the most deadly) terrorist attack on US soil since 9/11.
is theoretically possible that three different cities, across two
time-zones and states, whose power companies are unrelated, whose
weather patterns are unrelated, whose ruling local governments are
unrelated and whose systems of public transport are largely
different, could all have experienced technical failures in their
power production and/or distribution facilities on the same day, all
in the morning hours.
likelihood of this however, is incredibly slim. It was almost
certainly related in one way or another, and because mutual technical
failures would be coincidental, this only leaves the options of a
malicious attack or a coordinated test/drill as the more
statistically realistic possibilities.
the Federal Government and the mainstream media have behaved
US mainstream media have not questioned what lies behind this and are
taking the non-explanations from
local power companies and local authorities at face value. This is
Federal Government has remained largely silent on an issue that has
crossed state borders. Unless it was a covert safety drill, the event
represents a national embarrassment for the United States.
idea that New York’s Subway System and Los Angeles International
Airport do not have fully capable back-up generator systems is both
appalling and disgraceful in the world’s wealthiest nation.
vindicates much of what Donald Trump said during his campaign about
America’s third-world style infrastructure.
where is Trump today? Where is anyone in the Federal government after
three major US cities have been publicly disgraced on an
it was a drill there should have been at least some fair warning in
addiction to a subsequent explanation. If it was terrorism or some
other sort of malicious hack, it should force an immediate
investigation, arrests should be made and the the infrastructure
should be upgraded immediately.
Trump was right,
spend less money on foreign meddling/wars and pump money into
America’s declining infrastructure. Where has that Donald Trump
