Patriot Broadcast From the Trenches Schedule 

The dark zone

Bob Owens

On January 15 I penned Shock the System: Just one example of how the government could lose a civil conflict.

It was a warning of how patriots could selectively shut down the capitols of states and nations by eliminating the electrical substations and residential transformers that service those cities. Though I stated nothing new either tactically or strategically (power stations were always the first targets of bombers and saboteurs dating back to before World War II), the post absolutely terrified the powers that be.

Hershel Smith at The Captain’s Journal referenced that article in Surviving The Apocalypse: Thinking Strategically Rather Than Tactically three days ago, in a continuation of his thoughts on tactics for “lone wolf”operations in a domestic insurgency.

He referred back to a post he wrote almost two and a half years ago, A Terrorist Attack That America Cannot Absorb, which discussed attacks on the main step-up transformers at coal power plants.

Unlike the residential transformers and smaller substations I discussed in Shock the System that would create short-term, comparatively isolated blackouts, the sort of attack that concerned Smith were well-coordinated attacks that would effectively strike a blow against the entire national grid, by knocking-out the system at the points of generation, taking out very rare pieces of equipment that would take years to replace. If attacks took out even a small number of step-up transformers, it would force the entire nation to ration power, and would have a crippling effect on the national economy.

Some people seem appalled at the fact that the sort of attacks that American forces have used so successfully overseas (Iraq’s electrical grid is still in the process of recovering from two wars) might be used against American cities… and that is the exact point both Smith and I were trying to make. Neither of us are advocates of such attacks, as both of us probably have a better idea than the layman of the effect such attacks would have. I’d likely lose several people I love very much who have medical conditions were such an attack to affect this region. these aren’t things we want. these are things we fear.

Smith and I are pointing out the fact that if states or the federal government is willing to push citizens into a Second Revolutionary War over the natural right to self defense, they will feel the wrath of the right of revolution that is the birthright of ever American.

America has hundreds of thousands to millions of combat-experienced infantry veterans, many of those who are still young and combat effective. Does anyone think these men who swore a lifetime oath to protect the Constitution with their lives will sit in their homes and wait to be taken out one-by-one if government forces start breaking their oaths, carrying out unconstitutional orders?

Attacks on the grid would occur to force those government assets into a defensive posture, putting them in a position where they must guard fragile infrastructure assets instead of carrying out raids. That such attacks would also demonstrate how weak the government really is may or may nor help a patriotic insurgency in the political arena. That’s rather beside the point.

Everyone will suffer in such scenarios, but the government will eventually fall to the realities of raw, basic math. There are more who would risk their lives to be free than there are willing to die to deny Americans their liberty.

As the criminal-led assault on the Constitution pushes us into an frightening parallel of 1775, we know that the margin of error to avoid a conflict decreases. We are a nation of divided cultures that no longer speaks the same language, nor shares the same values. I hope and pray that we will find leader who can be the bridge we need to pull us back together, but no such politician is currently serving.

Acknowledging what is likely to occur enables us to begin preparing to protect those we care about. Work for a peaceful resolution until the first shots are fired, but be aware that the government exists now to serve itself, not the people, and they do not share those same concerns, as President Make It Hurt has clearly demonstrated.

    There has never been a successful revolution to free the people. Never.

    We need to stop revolving and start evolving.

    Since they did it in Iraq, it sounds like perfect false flag attack for good old Barry to conjure up and blame on patriotic Americans in order ration energy to people like he wants and to cause civil unrest while he hides underground. Afterwards, he will let out the military and UN forces to clean up the mess after countless people have finished fighting each other over it. This sounds like a strategy that is more dangerous for us patriots than it would be for them.

    They could use something like that to blame a financial collapse on too. And all the bread and circus types who have no clue the system is about to collapse already would be fool enough to believe them. Let’s just hope that enough are awakened way before anything like that happens.

    You can also figure that all of the cellphone and emergency communication would be taken out also. Then once full on battle broke out, none of the people that work at utility companies would go to work. So, there goes the sewer, water, trucking, firefighters, and every other thing that makes city life possible. Sounds Mad Max to me!

      Don’t forget Nuclear Facilities, too. Yep, Mad Max/deserted wasteland sounds about right.

      I just keep thinking about the beginning scene of “Mad Max: The Road Warrior”:

      “The thundering machines sputtered and stopped. Their leaders talked and talked and talked. But nothing could stem the avalanche. Their world crumbled. The cities exploded. A whirlwind of looting, a firestorm of fear. Men began to feed on men. On the roads it was a white line nightmare.”

      Sometimes I feel that is the way we’re headed soon with the way things are going. Government leaders just want to talk and talk while watching everything go to shit. Nothing is getting done and things are getting worse and the collapse is upon us and that’s the way the world governments want it, I guess.

      So is our country going to be a desert wasteland of famine soon? Are we going to be playing the song, “We don’t need another hero” by Tina Turner? Is everything going to be a rusted piece of shit without oil and gas? What a dismal future that would be.
