A disturbing turn of events has United States officials wondering if there is such a thing as coincidences. There is somewhat of a mild panic that city leaders are attempting to NOT feed into, but the facts aren’t looking good.
Via Federalist Papers:
“Simultaneous power outages have swept across the U.S., affecting San Francisco, New York, and Los Angeles, leaving many fearing a cyber attack is to blame.
…Delays and line suspensions flooded Manhattan subway stations with backed up crowds, while cable cars and businesses shut down in San Francisco.
There were reports of 20 elevators shut down with people trapped inside, while traffic backed up among powerless traffic lights.
It isn’t clear what’s caused these massive power outages, but many question if a cyber attack caused it, and what more may be to come.”
Here’s an idea of what San Fransisco looked like yesterday:

What would be the outcome if these problems get more targeted and successful. The questions on everyone’s mind now are whether this is an intentional attack, and if so, who did it?
“The cause of the outage has not yet been made clear, though given the current geo-political climate it is not out of the question to suggest a cyber attack could be to blame. It has also been suggested that the current outages could be the result of a secretive nuclear/EMP drill by the federal government.
As we have previously reported, the entire national power grid has been mapped by adversaries of the United States and it is believed that sleep trojans or malware may exist within the computer systems that maintain the grid.
In a 2016 report it was noted that our entire way of life has been left vulnerable to saboteurs who could cause cascading blackouts across the United States for days or weeks at a time:
Here’s the question we should all be asking:

The chain of events sweeping the major cities across the U.S. is causing questions about whether this is a retaliation to the political climate brought on by the President’s no-nonsense way of dealing with world leaders. While it would be nice to think that our national power grid has a little better security than this, the fact is that it doesn’t take a lot of technical know how to do something disruptive. This is a scary reminder of just much we are really sitting ducks.
If this is a coordinated attack against the United States, I hope whoever did it is braced for the impact coming their way. The world may have gotten used to bowing and scraping from the U.S. in the past, but that is exactly where that kind of attitude is going to stay; in the past.
