Was an EMP Attack Just Tested on the United States?

American Thinker

An unsettling series of events arguably bearing on national security transpired last week that the MSM hastened to paper over.  On April 30, the FAA, as a consequence of “computer glitches”, halted outgoing flights at LAX as well as other airports including PHX, SFO, SJC, SLC, LAS, and SAN.

An NBC  report May 2 remarked:

A relic from the Cold War appears to have triggered a software glitch at a major air traffic control center in California Wednesday that led to delays and cancellations of hundreds of flights across the country, sources familiar with the incident told NBC News.

On Wednesday at about 2 p.m., according to sources, a U-2 spy plane, the same type of aircraft that flew high-altitude spy missions over Russia 50 years ago, passed through the airspace monitored by the L.A. Air Route Traffic Control Center in Palmdale, Calif. The L.A. Center handles landings and departures at the region’s major airports, including Los Angeles International (LAX), San Diego and Las Vegas.

Obama’s Tyranny: Petty or Something More Sinister?

American Thinker

Last  week, headlines informed us that, because of the Sequester, the FAA will be reducing  the number of Air Traffic Controllers and closing 149 control towers completely.  Earlier, the Department of Homeland  Security released  hundreds of illegal aliens awaiting deportation because they could not afford to  hold them because of cuts mandated by the Sequester, they  said.

Head  Start is to face cuts  due to Sequestration. Native American children are being sacrificed  to Sequestration according to Slate Magazine. The Marine Corps faces massive  reductions in manpower reports the Wall Street Journal. The U.S.S. Harry  Truman and its escorts are sitting  idle in Norfolk, VA because of the Sequester when they should be on their  way to the other side of the world.

The  TSA is threatening cuts that will push airport security lines out onto the street, while the government had been threatening to  cut meat inspections until Congress pushed back.

In  other words the Administration is holding a gun to the head of almost every  single American in its quest to inflict the maximum pain possible on each of us  to achieve its political objectives.

FAA declares ‘no-fly’ zone directly over crippled Nebraska nuclear plant, but claims everything is just fine

(NaturalNews)
Last week, NaturalNews reported that rising Missouri River flood waters
prompted officials to declare a “Notification of Unusual Event” as the Fort
Calhoun Nuclear plant just outside of Omaha, Neb. (http://www.naturalnews.com/032672_n…). Since that time,
flood waters have continued to rise, the US Federal Aviation Administration
(FAA) has declared a mysterious two-mile radius “no-fly” zone around the plant
for unknown reasons, and federal officials continue to claim in spite of all
this that plant is just fine.
