Skip to comments.Newt Gingrich on D.C. Weather: 'Mild Taste of What an EMP (Electromagnetic Pulse) Attack Would Do'

Newt Gingrich issued a warning, based on the destructive storms that hit the Washington, D.C. area over the weekend, on Twitter:

At this point I’m a lot less concerned about an EMP than I am the continued closure of coal fired power plants.
I had power outages 2 days in a row last week and we didn’t even have any storms.
I saw this TV series already. Jericho
JJ Abrams is doing a similar one I’m the fall. Revolution.
Yep. Except the cars still work.
I wonder how all those Volts are working out for everyone in DC right now?
I would rather see Newt as Secretary of State, to clean out the nest of vipers in that godforsaken anti-American/pro-Arab hellhole.
John Bolton = National Security Advisor
David Petraeus = current SecDef = continue as SecDef
James Woolsey = returns as CIA Director
There are some of my thoughts on appointments IF we have a regime change this coming November.
Certain dirk bikes will survive EMPs. Not much else.
look at all the idiot preppers eating and drinking while us smart people are standing in line waiting for the govt to feed us.
My older John Deere tractors with ignition points should be ok.The newer equipment will all be toast.
Interesting ‘freudian slip’. Are you JJ Abrams? ... Keep us Freepers updated on Revolution. Sounds ‘poignant’ now that the collapse is within sight.
I think DC power removal can only be for the good
Having Gorbull warming flooding DC and returning it to the sea couldn’t ‘hoit ‘ either.
Petraeus cannot be SecDef until September of 2021; National Security Act of 1947.
I’m saving my old Model-T ignition coil just in case.
btw, Petraeus is not SecDef he is head of the CIA. Leon Panetta is SecDef.
I have two ancient rototillers that will still work. The Techumseh was made around 1947. The old Troybuilt, sometime in the late 50s.
Okay, except Petraeus is not Sec of Def.
Newt, if you put it out on Twitter how do you expect they are gonna read it?

Never got into LOST, but I absolutely love Fringe and Alcatraz (sadly it was cancelled).
Looking forward to “Revolution” I hope they don’t “V” if it gets too “Political” like they did with V when they fired the producer because he made allusions to “Hope and change”.
Didn’t it leak out that the study of such an event concluded that 80% of the people east of the Mississippi would be dead in a year?
[ My older John Deere tractors with ignition points should be ok.The newer equipment will all be toast. ]
Older Deer Diesel Tractors will be fine too, an diesel tractor that has a “Manual Fuel Shutoff” will be fine as well. They only have basic electrica switches and an EMP isn’t going to destroy Lead Cell batteries and starter relays.
I grew up driving a “4020” on the farm, farmgirl at heart.
