‘You Should Have Expected U.S.’: Series of Attacks Hit Midwest Ahead of Massive Electric Grid Drill

Our grid depends on this mineral

The FBI is offering a $25,000 reward after the third in a series of power grid attacks in Arkansas left 10,000 residents without power over the weekend.

The attacks began back in September:

In the early morning hours of September 29, 2013, officials with Entergy Arkansas reported a fire at its Keo substation located on Arkansas Highway 165 between Scott and England in Lonoke County. Fortunately, there were no injuries and no reported power outages. Investigation has determined that the fire, which consumed the control house at the substation, was intentionally set. The person or persons responsible for this incident inscribed a message on a metal control panel outside the substation which reads, ‘YOU SHOULD HAVE EXPECTED U.S.’ (source)

These attacks are especially troubling considering their timing ahead of a massive joint power grid drill scheduled for next month to include the U.S., Canada and Mexico. The GridEx II grid security exercise set for November 13-14 will involve FBI antiterrorism units, National Guard, thousands of utility workers and business executives, as well as government officials from all three nations to simulate widespread grid takedown scenarios.

More troubling is a sudden talking point shift to the vulnerability of the U.S. power grid by multiple government officials, including outgoing Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano, who recently issued an ‘open letter’ to her successor warning that a cyber or physical event that takes out the power grid will occur — stating that it is not a question of “if” but “when”.

Napolitano is not the only one talking about how a grid attack will forever alter life as we know it, as SHTF Plan recently reported:

We are only one act of madness away from a social cataclysm unlike anything our country has ever known.
-Congressman Trent Franks (R-AZ), Senior Member House Armed Service Committee

EMP is one of the small number of threats that could hold at risk the continued existence of U.S. civil society.
-Dr. Robert Hermann, Commissioner US Congress EMP Commission

Just one violent active region on the sun can cause continent-wide, perhaps even planetary-scale impacts to our critical infrastructure.
-John Kappenman, Principal Investigator US Congress EMP Commission

The likelihood of a severe geo-magnetic event capable of crippling our electric grid is 100%.
-Congresswoman Yvette Clarke (D-NY), Senior Member House Homeland Security Committee

If the power grid were to be taken out, it would throw this country into total chaos. Unlike in the times of the Great Depression, when people farmed their own land and grew food gardens, somewhere between 96-98% of the nation is dependent on the other 2-4% for their food. Many people do not keep more than a few days worth of food and water on hand, and survival and preparedness skills aren’t exactly taught in schools these days.

Regardless of how the power grid goes down, the important thing is to make sure you and your family are prepared if or when it does. As Daisy Luther of Organic Prepper wrote, “You’ve been warned“.

    The message is from V for Vendetta?

    Did anyone look on the ground where the “vandals” wrote that?? They may have dropped their FBI or DHS badge on the ground while they were tagging.

      I thought the same thing, Occam’s razor most simple answer ( lest assumable answer) is generally the correct answer

  • RickE.

    Ok, they’ve been blathering on and on about this for months now, yet NOTHING is being done to minimize damage to the grid and associated infrastructure! Why the hell not???

      To bring about martial law, that’s why.

    There is more they aren’t saying. They didn’t even report these stories until well after the fact. I know quite a bit about this situation and I can tell you they are not telling us about the other attacks here in Arkansas. There is more. Maybe they aren’t reporting it to keep some things from the public, but there is far more. I can’t say everything but keep a look out for more stuff coming out.

    • RickE.

      Come on man, let it out! It’s relevant and important to know more about such matters. Gives us all more time to prepare as to the probable scenario.
      If you know more, I’d appreciate hearing it!

    seems legit!

    Arkansas is in the South. Not the Midwest.

    Judging from the quality of the penmanship the person responsible is likely also a medical Dr.
