When the Lights Go Out On November 13, 2013

There are very dark storm clouds gathering around the country and North America as a whole. Things are about to get dark, very dark in just a few short weeks. In just over two months, on November 13-14, 2013, the lights are about to go out. Will the lights come back on? It depends on who you ask. Given the past behavior of those in power, it would behoove all of us to prepare for the fact that we could be living for an extended time with no electricity.

November’s North American Power Grid Take Down Drill

Within most false flag events lies a terror drill which substantively ties together the drill with the terrorist event. The 9/11 attacks and the 7/7 bombings serve as prime examples of hiding a false flag event within a terror drill. This strategy has worked very well before and on so many occasions that it would be naive to not expect this scenario to be played out again when the time is right and the anticipated maximum benefit can be realized from the event.

Along these lines of a coming false flag terror event, the New York Times is currently reporting that …”thousands of utility workers, business executives, National Guard officers, F.B.I. anti-terrorism experts and officials from government agencies in the United States, Canada and Mexico are preparing for an emergency drill in November that will simulate physical attack and cyber attacks that could take down large sections of the power grid.” To date, 150 businesses have volunteered to participate in the drill. This is a scheduled two day drill commencing on November 13th.

The Past Is the Best Predictor of the Future

With the possibility that the upcoming terror drill will turn into a false flag event, it would be in everyone’s best interest to examine this event more closely and to prepare accordingly.

This government has recently left a trail of catastrophic doomsday scenarios a mile wide, the most severe of which speaks to an EMP attack. Many of whom are aware of the coming drill, fear an EMP attack which will permanently disable the grid as TV viewers have seen in the popular TV show, Revolution. Personally, I do not expect to see an all-encompassing EMP attack because so many of the police state surveillance grid assets would be impacted (e.g. surveillance cameras, NSA spy grid capabilities, etc.) and so many resources have been used in its development. Yet, given the unlikely event of an EMP attack, it seems that nearly everyone from former DHS director, Janet Napolitano to former CIA director, James Woolsey have discussed the possibility of a grid take down through an EMP attack. Further, the Nuclear Energy Regulatory Commission in their, NERC PowerPoint presentation, stated that one of the possible outcomes of an attack will be a “prolonged blackout…”

Although I do not believe that an EMP attack is in our immediate future, it is likely that a false flag terror attack on our power grid, set to coincide with the November North American blackout drill, will take place.

The working scenario that has emerged is that World War III is on the horizon. Syria was to be the flash point. However, with American and international sentiment running so high against American involvement in the Syrian conflict, Obama needs a Plan B in order to get America into war, because it does not appear that Congress is going to give him the authorization that he needs to force our way in Syria culminating in a military stand off between the Russians and the Chinese and the United States. Subsequently, if Obama fails to obtain Congressional support to attack Syria, he could very well turn his attention to the take down of the power grid and he could still achieve his goals in under two months.

If and when the power grid is compromised, this would plunge North America into an abyss of darkness. Some people will undoubtedly anticipate “three days of darkness” which will lead to a roll out of draconian martial law. Certainly, some of the recent government preparations speaks to this possibility with FEMA stockpiling massive amounts of food and the acquisition of 2.6 billion rounds of ammunition by DHS. And with the roll out of martial law, the will of the people and of Congress would no longer matter and Obama would be free to prosecute any conflict he would deem necessary. Personally, this would be an attractive option for Obama because he might very well be setting himself up to be King for life.

The Constitutional Kill Switch

I would then expect that the take down of the grid, no matter how temporary, could lead to the imposition of total Federal tyranny and the implementation of the Constitutional kill switch, otherwise known as, Executive Order 13603, in which the government would control every resource in the country including the involuntary conscription of any person for any purpose which would be overseen by the Secretary of  Labor. All food and water would be subject to Federal control, whether this would be your family garden, your food stockpiles…anything… anybody is subject to confiscation by FEMA and DHS under Executive Order 13603 which is martial law on steroids.This would give those in charge total control over the vast resources of this country.

First, there are some very serious implications which could result from a grid shutdown, but the cost-benefit analysis favors the elite going through with this plot.

Just as the CIA backed al-Qaeda needed a game changing event to bring in the US military to break the Syrian stalemate  by staging a false flag chemical weapons attack, the globalists need a game changing event in America. Taking down the grid is a move in that direction, and what better way to accomplish this goal as an embedded event within a terrorist drill.

Bankster Benefits to a Grid Shutdown

There are some tangible benefits to the banksters perpetrating a grid shutdown. In the aftermath of a grid shut down, a shut down that might only last a few days, the internet would go down and the banksters could restore the internet at some point with Chinese types of censorship controls which would effectively silence the truth movement. McCain at one time wanted offensive bloggers fined $300,000. Senator Jay Rockefeller stated that he wished the internet had never been invented. Both men may soon get their way.

A power grid shut down would also allow for the full implementation of a North Korea type of police state apparatus under the guise of keeping order. The NSA would provide the intelligence and DHS would provide enforcement. And I think the beleaguered citizens of the United States would soon discover why FEMA signed the bilateral agreement which allows Russian troops on our soil.  Certainly, if the Russians are used to supplement martial law, we could conclude that all the drama over Syria may be very well-orchestrated theater and that Russia and the United States are on the same side and are serving the same “Gnomes of Zurich” banksters. Yes, war could still happen between the two super powers, but it would be a contrived war, not a spontaneous event.

An additional benefit to conducting this drill is that it will allow the banksters to test their ability to shut down power to selected communities and/or regions. This would be a useful tool in combating the insurrection that surely will follow the tyranny of what is coming.

In a grid shutdown, the above developments are likely, given the cast of players who are making the grand decisions impacting this country. However, a perpetual state of martial law, extreme internet control and insurrection suppression through denial of power do not represent the final goals in this latest plot against our citizens.


It is completely understandable as to why some people are viewing this terror drill with extreme suspicion. Sometimes, when journalists cover events, they get a feeling for what lies ahead without fully knowing all the facts. I, too, like so many of my colleagues have that sick feeling in the pit of my stomach which is screaming at me that this terror drill will produce some very ominous spin off complications. And as bad as the November 13th terror drill may be, I strongly fear that this event will have a second possibility which contains some very dire consequences in which the resulting effects will be much more devastating than just suffering through a prolonged blackout.

There is a strong possibility that there could be a false flag attack embedded within the false flag attack coming upon our grid and I will address that possibility in the next article in this series.

    A statistics prof. That explains a lot. What is the old saying? Liars use statistics. Case in point right here. You are either a pathological liar or extremely delusional. False flags my ass. The false flag that exists is your fertile yet demented imagination.

    • nc joe(ker)

      nc joe, we all thought you finally fucked off and died like we kept telling you to for so long. Sorry to see you are still in denial and as blind as before.

      Your version of dementia, which is just as fertile, leads you on a path to victimization. Ignoring the possibility that something may happen will not prevent it from happening, no matter how improbable. Of course many things on this site are a stretch but you deny everything blindly and that is just as bad as those that believe everything without restraint.

      Stupid extends in both directions nc joe and you prove you are in this category everytime you post here. Better to be remembered as a fucking moron than to open your pie hole and prove you are still one.

        Arf arf.

    Shocking article. Far too drastic a plan. Here’s a better approach:-
    Have a group of 100 paid volunteers living in a Big Brother style large compound + ranch as we study and observe the good ideas, winning strategies and greatest game plans for surviving grid down for a week. Housemates may leave any time. Also Big Brother keeps close watch on anyone showing signs of serious distress and of course any medical emergency is attended to promptly eg broken leg.
    Afterwards, the gripping TV viewing may have turned a survivor into an overnight celebrity but reports are written fast and furiously, lessons learned, before funding is granted to repeat the experiment on a larger scale.
    The “Volunteers required to spend a year on a desert island” has already been done and yes, best friends fall out refusing to speak to each other ever again, its terrible.
    However, serious illness/injury finds you back on the Hospital’s grid ASAP and no-one died on a reality show.
    But that must be one of the greatest fears post SHTF. The lack of Hospital facilities, the safety net taken for granted yet seldom praised.
    So help me God.

      @Ken your UK friend, “Have a group of 100 paid volunteers living in a Big Brother style large compound + ranch as we study and observe the good ideas, winning strategies and greatest game plans for surviving grid down for a week.” As long as there is clean water and food, I can’t see where there would be a problem. Some people live without power 365 days a year. I’ve done it for weeks chasing waves in South America. Now if you live on the thirtieth floor of some high rise in NYC, I can see how that would be a big problem.

    I am weary of these splinter groups which seek push the idea that every scheduled coordinated national disaster drill (especially the next one) is destined to go “live”, be used as “cover” for a false flag event.

    This is the playbook of the alias ‘Sorcha Faal’ and others who issue a mundane series of catastrophic predictions, in the hope that some day they will be right and can convince their audience to ignore the previous dismal track record. As they say in the Psychic Network, to be used for entertainment purposes only.

    Some years back Captain May formed a ‘Ghost Troop’ of Internet and in-person activists who would spread these drill-going-live allegations and would show up to harass personnel conducting FEMA and other drills. The people conducting them, usually Federal and local first responders, were given a taste of impolite disaffected youth howling about drills going “live”, to the first responders these people must have seemed like they were from outer space. They really stirred up Portland Oregon where they claimed a false flag nuclear detonation would occur.

    Then when it didn’t the Ghost Troop (predictably) took credit for averting the imaginary false flag event. It was a particularly virulent and impolite offshoot of 9/11 truth.

    Now don’t get me wrong. These people DO have a serious point as regards 9/11, where the June ’01 memorandum changes the Air Force intercept policy ‘just in time’ to ensure that base commanders cannot scramble jets to intercept civilian airliners on their own authority… and the incredible coincidence that most active fighters are away on active drill far away from the ground zeroes. All command decisions lead to Vice President Cheney and he delays and quibbles until the Pentagon is hit.

    I have a working theory that Cheney and others participated in planning the hit on the Pentagon and it was the “only” Pearl Harbor Event actually scheduled for that day… but they were betrayed by the actual planners. See my theory here,


    But in all things apply a measure of skepticism. And do not abandon so much of your every day life preparing for disaster, that a small part of you seizes on highly improbable occurrences. For this is human nature, if we worry too much about a hypothetical event a part of us will begin to believe it will happen, even will it to happen just to “get it over with”. Because nervous indecision causes mental exhaustion and we seek release from it.

    Moving on but sudden recall of an observation by a friend I shall call Mr D. Mr D had a passion for watches, he really did. The cooler the better LOL.
    I told Mr D that every now and again I get the strange desire to ‘go off grid’ and see how I get on.
    For example, I used to leave the mobile at home once a month . . . then curse myself for being so foolish because not having used a watch for so many years, I no longer have one and I totally forgot about the need for a watch so missing buses was a negative feedback loop motivator I can do without LOL. Same hassles even if you just simply forget to bring your credit card with you LOL. The egg’s on my face so laughter expected LOL.
    Chargers for ifone? Got numerous back ups. Use them well thankyou. 6th sense for keeping my ifone charged up and running and knowing all the WiFi hotspots LOL.
    But Mr D also has his back up in his near mind boggling collection of wind up mechanical spring watches, means not only can he tell the time LOL. He can barter with a product and service we will all need post SHTF.
    WATCH this space with Mr D. A true prepper.
    So help me God.

    Interesting, but unless you read about it in the paper no one will even know it’s taking place. It’s a simulation, nothing is being powered down, the participants are participating at work. Yet this article falsely proclaims….”In just over two months, on November 13-14, 2013, the lights are about to go out. Will the lights come back on?” No, the lights are NOT going out. No one is shutting down the electric grid and throwing the United States and its economy and social order into chaos on November 13. This is bullshit. It’s a simulation to try to determine what might happen. But, of course, behind the ‘false flag’ simulation is the REAL shut down. Spare me.

    This whole thing is nothing but more ‘terrorism’ fear mongering which the Daily Sheeple played into. Where’s this threat supposed to originate? al Qaeda and the Taliban and all the rest are no threat. So whose the threat? China? How would it be in their advantage to cripple a trading partner that owes them trillions of dollars? See, this whole thing strikes me as just ‘keep people anxious, keep the threat alive’ bullshit. The only REAL threat is a powerful enough CME that would wipe out the grid. Other than that I just don’t buy this cyberterrorism as a real threat. But who knows, maybe I’m naïve.
