Perturbed by the semi-bad press the New York Times gathered for the Cult of Electromagnetic Pulse Crazy/Newt Gingrich piece a week or so ago, Roscoe Bartlett, the ancient GOP Congressman from Maryland who is one of the cult’s leaders, replied: Threats to the United States from a shockwave of electricity known as an electromagnetic pulse, […]

The character of America’s Cult of Electromagnetic Pulse is rock solid kook-ism from the far right. It’s mainstream, an industry as well as a grifter’s paradise. There is good money to be made provisioning it: Advice pamphlets, rotten fiction and non-fiction books, emergency tools, concrete, cinder blocks, fuel, barriers of all types, entrenching shovels that […]

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.

Ol’ EMP Crazy, now stocking 50 pound bags of corn from Sam’s Club and expanding his refuge in Appalachia in advance of the imminent end of America. In 2012, notorious electromagnetic pulse kook Roscoe Bartlett was run out of the House, losing election to a Democratic candidate in a redrawn district. So, naturally, the first […]

Since Roscoe Bartlett was run out of Congress leaving the cause of electromagnetic pulse doom-stopping in the hands of legitimate rape caucus member Trent Franks of Arizona, the old Cult of EMP Crazy has been gravely damaged.

Posted in Crazy Weapons, Culture of Lickspittle, WhiteManistan at 3:34 pm by George Smith

When Republican Roscoe Bartlett was booted out of the House permanently during the last election, it marked the official death of the Cult of Electromagnetic Pulse Crazy.

Collateral damage: Bigot deals death blow to Heritage

Posted in Crazy Weapons at 3:27 pm by George Smith

I’d remarked in November that Roscoe Bartlett’s removal from the House of Representatives had crippled the Cult of Electromagnetic Crazy. His caucus leader replacement, Trent Franks of Arizona, is a birther nobody even the most crazy in the GOP pay no mind. This week the Cult had another spike put through its zombie head with […]
