They wouldn't be the first to do what you so questionably politely suggest and of course you dont have to be based there it is just a location at end of day, however more importantly not all users are "based in the usa " thats for sure, its the amount of users who detirmine the total wealth no one uses no one cares.
So i unfortunately think you should practice what you preach and "Think it through" respectively.

I'd expect the entire world economy to tank completely overnight if a major EMP event happened.

That situation would become so unpredictable I highly doubt anyone could reliably manage a get-rich-quick scheme.

It would be like the zombie apocalypse except this time the zombies have guns and are smart because they aren't zombies they are freaked out crazy desperate humans.

Um I am pretty sure the sell off is due to he increase in the intrest rate.

I mean if people knew about an impending emp the market would drop a heck of a lot more then 3 or 4 percent.

All the reserve military guys would get called in too so that'd be another good indicator something was going on.

We'd see way more activity in preparation.

Well... This new story underlines and supports the OP's theory.

Silicon Valley's ultra wealthy are reportedly buying up $8 million doomsday bunkers in New Zealand

This isn't new news re: New Zealand...
Stories from earlier this year...

www.bloomberg.com... ppers90's /

www.theguardi... an.com/news/2018/feb/15/why-silicon-valley-billionaires-are-prepping-for-the-apocalypse-in-new-zealand

And from last year...
www.newyorker.com... e-super-rich

So... You know....
This isn't make believe..
This is not a test.
This is the REAL DEAL.
...
Skeptics can hide their heads in the sand in denial for only SO long...

I went to New Zealand during the Global Economic Recession to work for a year and lay down foundations for the future.
I'm going back.
And I'm not am executive. (yet)...

I love me some doom porn... But in history, all some have to hear is the fed and interest rate hike and the stock market shakes a little. Also in order for an Emp to have a lasting impact that you indicate from the tumble in stocks the attackers would have to successfully detonate multiple nukes in our atmosphere in multiple strategic spots without our multiple lines of defense interfering to make it work. much easier to infect the masses with a virus and keep the working infrastructure in place.

Also if your mind isn't completely closed off to alternative theories...
I'm more prone to interest in the prospect of a man-made "Solar Sneeze" as its sillily termed via the "Solar Warden" program
Link - m.huffingtonpost.co.uk... en-perks/solar-warden-the-secret-space-program_b_1659192.html?guccounter=1

"America" or "New Atlantis" as the Baconians would have it, is the grand Capitalist Experiment.
Experiments have beginnings
...and ends.
...and means to those ends...

One would easily conclude, that the People of the U.S. would be the most difficult obstacle in the path to the New World Order Global Government.

Some have known of the secret metaphor of Moby Dick.
(Spell check might adjust that)
Where the Great "WHITE" Whale...
...Is the U.S. (in the shape of an upside down (defeated) sperm whale.

But who is "A.H.A.B."?
Hiram Abiff?

Possibly because silicon valley has started the widespread banning of Conservative voices and anyone with two brain cells to rub together can see the government intervention coming.

Or Hey! It could be the next Carrington Event.

I'm going to go with the former, thank you.

Nice theory though!!!


Another Carrington event would be kinda cool. I have some panels and a D-6000 or something converter ready. Also 2 months worth of food and plenty of ammo.
Plus we could all use a break from this crap!

My mind is by no means closed.
I am sorry sincerely if ive given that impression, i more than welcome alternative views and value them.
In all fairness this is my first thread and i may be somewhat ignorant to my responsibilities as the OP, i assumed it was my responsibility to constructively defend the theory and thought innocently that was what i was doing.
However, with a multitude of other of topic events going on worldwide i don't think it's to much of a stretch to connect certain dots and see that the possibility of my theory is relevant. Hence my responses to posts.
At end of the day though it is just that a theory published on a site thats set up to explore through members the probability of that theory and let me assure you that i just as much as anyone hopes the theory does not eventuate.
My theory still makes perfect sense to me as does most other posts to my thread, but my theory does not mean its my belief as explained above.
Love all the inputs and interest and hope I've explained my position a bit better now.

You have to realize, the high roller, high frequency algorithm players make money when the market rises and also makes money when the market falls. They plan and instigate market corrections when every penny the poor common investors have have to invest is in then the market manipulators crash the market.

Face the facts, the market is rigged to beat you and me out of our hard earned cash. Only the savvy will recognize when to get in or out in time to profit. Keep a close eye on your 401K and get out when the getting is good.



Because people are greedy, they won't. And for me, I don't like 401k's Its a lottery that only a few will benefit from.

You used science to come to the conclusion that the circuitry in your "panels" would be useful after an "event"?

EMP attack? Ya think - how about other mundane factors?

Tech stock sell-off accelerates as chipmakers fall......
Micron drops nearly 10% after analyst warns of oversupply of Nand flash memory chips




Market volatility rose, with the Vix climbing above 15 on Thursday for the first time in intraday trade since mid-August.

Tech was the second worst-performing sector in the S&P 500, with a 0.8 per cent drop. Energy fell 1.9 per cent. Telecommunications, utilities and real estate were among the segments in the black.

Maybe it's because Facebook, Google and Twitter have turned in to a political (Democrat/SJW) tool and are censoring content?

ETA like this,


Facebook And Twitter Ban Popular Independent Media Sites In Coordinated Purge

Yeah, that's what I was thinking, too. There are a few other issues facing the tech industry, such as data privacy. Google was going to participate with China in making a search engine in its country that censors searches and reports user activity to the government. There are lots of hacks that release user information. China is using information it collects on its citizens to make a social credit score. Information is very valuable but we give it away for free all the time.

If you look back a couple of months, Musk threatened the media and those who control it. Do you recall when Musk wanted a way to check the credibility of journalists and such? He also made remarks over those who 'own the media'.

Saw a video on YouTube afterwards that claimed that we should watch for the media to turn against Musk from now on. So far, since then, all I've seen are negative remarks from the media towards Musk and his companies. I believe Tesla stocks are reflecting the battle that's going on.

I've been watching the other related threads, Technical stocks are listed on NASDAQ, NIKKEI in Japan and Hang Seng in China.
If there is a planned attack, we need an attacker with a grudge?
Hang Seng closed down -391 friday (Q code)?

China isn't very happy with the trade tariffs and has been accused of supplying boards with hidden Diodes

So I'm thinking this is going to be more like the old Spy Fox (Dry Cereal) exploit.

I'm certain USA need not to look far to find an attacker with a grudge.
If conspiracy theorists are to be believed that would include internally.
Even blind freddy could see that the only way to even consider taking down the mighty USA is to first take down its communication abilities first and foremost.
Now trumps threatning saudi arabia, the list of people with grudges surely is undeniable.
