EMP Crazy Protection Act

Posted in Crazy Weapons, WhiteManistan at 4:36 pm by George Smith

Hat tip to Steve Aftergood for pointing out the latest and most pathetic accomplishment of the Cult of Electromagnetic Pulse Crazy, aka the House Congressional EMP Caucus. (Which was a name the mainstream media could use to get around having to explain that they were, well, electromagnetic pulse crazies.) Yesterday it was responsible for passing […]

White, right wing and paranoid spam

Posted in Crazy Weapons, Extremism at 1:00 pm by George Smith

The prepper/survivalist movement has its own small bottom-feeder businesses not above trying spam-vertising. The blog filter caught this one today, seed “No liberals or Commies in the bunker” with a backlink. Our University of Alabama patented solar desalination product uses no electricity, has no filters to replace, can be taken anywhere and extracts pure water […]

Marinated in electromagnetic pulse doom

Posted in Crazy Weapons, Extremism, Imminent Catastrophe at 1:22 pm by George Smith

The crazies are already crazy enough, buddy. Don’t make it worse. A new series created by JJ Abrams — Revolution — illustrates how marinated US popular culture is in electromagnetic pulse doom stories. In the real world it’s solely the property of the extreme right wing. But you can’t have a television show with just […]

Cult of EMP Crazy: Collateral damage, target UK

Posted in Crazy Weapons, Culture of Lickspittle, Extremism at 9:53 am by George Smith

This week James Arbuthnot, a Tory member of Parliament brought the Cult of Electromagnetic Pulse Crazy to the UK, resulting in a burst of stories on how England could be thrown back to the time of the movie, The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance, or whatever passes for it in merry Old England. One example, […]

So many Doomsdays (working example)

Posted in Crazy Weapons, Cyberterrorism, Imminent Catastrophe at 12:34 pm by George Smith

Working hard at it, another bog standard journalist churns out his bog standard feature on electrical doomsday, at the Boston Globe. Contained therein, all the assertions and scenarios delivered by authority, again demonstrating what I’ve come to believe is a profound defect in the American national security mind brought on by US paranoia and the […]

The end is nigh

Posted in Crazy Weapons, Extremism, War On Terror at 10:25 am by George Smith

Here’s a kook summary for the end of the year, all brought on by the wide publicizing of Newt Gingrich’s love for electromagnetic pulse doom mythology. I correctly called Gingrich’s bubble about to burst a week ago. His mania for electromagnetic pulse doom stories proved unpalatable, along with many other things, to many. However, Gingrich […]

Newt, chief of the Cult of EMP Crazy, covered by the Times

Posted in Crazy Weapons, Culture of Lickspittle at 2:56 pm by George Smith

Today William Broad of the New York Times put Newt Gingrich’s role as one of the chieftains of the Cult of Electromagnetic Pulse Crazy, into that high button newspaper. DD blog touched on it last month, along with Gingrich’s numbing videos for the electromagnetic pulse doom lobby, here. Indeed, I’ve covered the Cult of EMP […]

Cult of EMP Crazy: Newt the whore

Posted in Crazy Weapons, Culture of Lickspittle at 2:03 pm by George Smith

UPDATED Now that Newt Gingrich is enjoying his fifteen minutes of fame atop the heap of horrid GOP presidential hopefuls I can use it as an excuse to show him back when he was basically the famous person for a group of relative nobodies (but persistent nobodies) in the Cult of Electromagnetic Pulse Crazy. Gingrich […]

Caught spamming

Posted in Crazy Weapons at 8:34 am by George Smith

From the Dept. of Very Small Laughs, EMPAct America, the umbrella organization also referred to as the Cult of Electromagnetic Pulse Crazy has hired a spammer to advertise their latest venture, I guess because it is under-appreciated at this time of national travail. It’s an Internet radio iPod broadcast called, obviously enough, EMPAct Radio. This […]

Internet access as a commodity

Posted in Phlogiston, Predator State at 5:42 pm by George Smith

In another sign of national decline, or the inability to do anything other now more advanced western nations do, AT&T begins limiting its DSL customers on Monday. Unlimited Internet access is over here. DD is an AT&T. The service is already frequently abysmal. Natch, the reason for this is because none of the big corporate […]
