Why the Cult of EMP Crazy is dead

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. That’s because the head of the electromagnetic pulse cause in the House went solely into the hands of the leader of EMP caucus, Trent Franks of Arizona. Trent […]


WhiteManistan romance fiction

Posted in WhiteManistan at 9:03 am by George Smith

The blog has covered it previously, notably in the hundreds of self-published (through Amazon) books dealing with the fall of the United States and western civilization through an electromagnetic pulse attack. More limited in scope and apparently more capable of interesting real publishers are secession novels. Call it a semi-literary genre for WhiteManistan readers without […]


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 […]


All the weird, angry people…

Steve at Secrecy blog alerted me to Sunday’s episode of The Simpson’s, Homer Goes to Prep School, which pillories a subject familiar to blog readers. In it Homer Simpson goes to the local bar where he runs into a kook who asks if he’s ready for a world gone WROL, Without the Rule of Law. […]


Cult of EMP Crazy recedes

Posted in Crazy Weapons, Culture of Lickspittle, Psychopath & Sociopath, WhiteManistan at 3:22 pm by George Smith

When Roscoe Bartlett, mainstay of the Cult of Electromagnetic Pulse Crazy, had his House career ended in the November election it dealt a heavy blow to the lobbying group. With Newt Gingrich being run off the national stage yet again, two of its most vigorous personalities were cut down. Although Bartlett never got any legislation […]


WTF is wrong with these people?

When I put that question in striking bold yesterday I got to thinking about what has happened in the last fifteen to twenty years. The time period encompasses my writing and work on various matters having to do with security ranging from the old origins of malware to chemical and biological weapons. That started, depending […]


Pick the most inspiring (not a trick question)

Bigger! Taken a week apart, the first in DC, the second in Austin. From the Post: Thousands of people, many holding signs with names of gun violence victims and messages such as “Ban Assault Weapons Now,” joined a rally for gun control on Saturday, marching from the Capitol to the Washington Monument … Once the […]


Script advisor to Red Dawn

Posted in Crazy Weapons at 3:28 pm by George Smith

The remake of Red Dawn was laughed out of town. On Metacritic it was a well into the red 32. “The film adopts a fringe conspiracy theory that has long been pushed by a small, right-wing coalition led by Newt Gingrich: that terrorists or a rogue state could devastate America with an electro-magnetic pulse, or […]


Christmas presents

“The EMP pulser with a special Antenna is capable of shutting down a computer at a distance of 15 meters,” it reads. Thirty four thousand dollars, cheap. But my favorites are the $1400 can crusher and the $350 fish stunner. Ever since Rep. Roscoe Bartlett was retired in November a whole bunch of fun has […]


The Empire’s Dog Feces

Posted in Crazy Weapons, Culture of Lickspittle at 1:21 pm by George Smith

From the Daily Plaster Caster: Electromagnetic pulse grenades are a favorite of sci-fi storytellers and videogame designers, a la Halo and Call of Duty. The Army evidently doesn’t want to be left out: It’s seeking a real-life version that can blast electromagnetic signals and fry insurgent bombs. To be specific, the Army wants “High Power […]
