Have you ever thought “I wish the elections were done”?
Well, what if that happened, but it wasn’t on good terms.
What if, in fact, Obama stayed in office for a third term as a war-time president because we were attacked before the elections could happen and the grid was shut down?
A government official is urging citizens to prepare for this:
A Kremlin insider has warned that war with the United States could break out “even before the November elections in the U.S.,” urging citizens to stockpile food.
Sergei Markov, a member of the Civic Chamber, a Moscow-based state institution, told the Daily Beast, “These are the most serious tensions between Moscow and Washington in decades….the war might begin even before the November elections in the U.S.”
“I personally plan to stock 200 cans of pork to be ready for a potential war crisis,” Markov added, “and I advise everybody to do the same.”
Markov’s warning should probably be treated seriously given that he is known to have “close ties to (the) Kremlin”.
As we previously reported, Russian citizens have been stockpiling food and essential supplies for months as paranoia about a major conflict escalates.
Tensions have risen yet further in recent days after it was revealed that the Obama White House was considering a major cyber attack against Russia in retaliation for Moscow’s alleged “interference in the American presidential election”.
While Americans are kept distracted by the media’s obsession with Donald Trump’s alleged mistreatment of women, Russians have very different priorities.
State-owned television stations are urging citizens to find out where their nearest nuclear bomb shelter is located, while managers of the Zenit Arena, a huge half-built stadium in St. Petersburg, recently received an official letter from the Ministry of Emergency Situations demanding that they create underground facilities that will be used to protect citizens from nuclear fallout.
As we reported earlier this month, 40 million Russians from all levels of government recently took part in a civil defense “emergency evacuation” drill that was a test run of how the population would respond to a “disaster occurrence” under an “emergency” situation.
The USA is fully dependent on the grid so if Russia were to attack us with cyber warfare, the whole country could be destabilized. We do have a paper voting system so the next president could be determined by counting the votes manually.
Do you think Obama is going to hand over the keys in the middle of a crisis like that? He could say our stability as a nation needs known leadership, not an untested, untrained appointee.
There might not be that much resistance from the higher-ups if we are in a war on our own turf.
What would you do if Russia attacked the US? How dependent are you on electricity for your day-to-day?
