The second tower has exploded in a gargantuan explosion, rocks and debris and everything started pouring down today we've had a national tragedy. Two airplanes have crashed into the World Trade Center in an apparent terrorist attack on our country. In the days following the 9 11 terror attacks nation counted the cost. Nearly 3000 people had died. The World Trade Center towers were gone. The Pentagon was severely damaged. The country was grieving, but then something happened. The whole country came together so Previously with the first responders, the yellow pouring of grief and the, uh, the anger over the terrorist. We were really truly united.

You know who you are. It's it's are has a pretty awesome aviation background and he He started off as a one. Twenty-one Guy and American Airlines this is after obviously got their training and all that stuff in Dallas. He took an early retirement and went into the one thirty five operations world. Ra is currently the chief pilot at jet links and on the g six fifty er and the Hawker eight hundred. He's got twelve other type ratings to see if I see a double I mea. Agi EMMY AA. So basically he knows in does it all he worked for flight works in Atlanta. And if I have Long Island New York. He spent several years in Afghanistan. That's how I know our and he worked on several military contracts for the. Us government are a thank you for joining us. How are you doing today? I'm doing good Adam. Thank you for having me. So for those who'd Ari right now is in. Omaha is in their training facility so he showed me a little tour for those of you. Who are listening to the PODCAST. You're not gonNA be able to see this so you're gonNA have to go check us out on you do and that's the network. Youtube Channel Gold. Google it'll be in the show notes so are shown us around their training facility. That is an amazing training center. How many folks did you say that can fit one hundred and fifty while one hundred fifty sounds like a teepee? An event in Omaha is forthcoming. That is that is a beautiful silly. How long have how long has it been around? It's been around. We've been in this facility for about six years. Okay wow so big. It's not it looks like it's about six days old. It looks nice I like that. Yeah well we have today because jet links something that we thought was really cool For those of you who know what. Tbn axes which were S- learning that surprisingly a lot of folks didn't know what teepee next a was and when it was that's our yearly meet up down in Orlando Jet Links. Was there talking to a bunch of our folks and getting to know what the network was all about. Ari and D two of the great people over Decided they would come down and see what we're all about so I think we're GONNA start off right there What what was the impetus that made you guys go? What we WANNA WANNA show up to teepee next and see what Apollo networks all about while. We've we've realized that we have a shortage of pilots and so We've received a direct from our CEO Jamie Walker to reach out to a different Organizations that can get in contact with potential employees that we want to recruit. So it's it's it's twofold it's get out there and explain who we are and what we do. What kind of company we are and how we differ from other charter operators and Sort of explain to people that you could start your career with us on a beach jet. You can progress to a mid size hawker or a challenger or go stream four four fifty five fifty six fifty so we we really have a a a large group aircraft. We have over one hundred aircraft. We have over two hundred and eighty pilots currently and we have probably about thirty open positions that we're looking to fill across the US so making that relationship and being present for the T. PM. Teepee an event was. I believe a very good investment in getting recognition out there and then partnering up say okay. We have an immediate need but we also have a long-term need one at solidifies long term relationships that we can provide people the information. They need to make a decision where they'd like to go while. Just all that that you said right there. I am Already notes to to roll and other stuff. So we're not going to abandon the outline. What we've already got a shift here so I guess the first thing I wanted to ask. You said that you were looking into other avenues to find out of these different organizations that you could go chat with and get to know their membership in almost recruit from them How did you hear about TBN? I heard it from D. She was the one that expressed it to me and told me that a and she heard it from southwest so get working for the last two years on a program with southwest so that we can have a pathway from a cadet through jet links and then on into South West so we built this relationship in signed the agreements that We'll have a flow program with South West Twofold for cadets that come in and start a career at sea a semi fighter or some aviation school then come to us to get their flight time up and then move on into South West. And it's a program where Southwest is involved from the beginning through their time here and then as they go into the southwest pilot pool or that environment so They had expressed us the information about your group and we thought that would be an excellent opportunity to reach out to different organizations. In addition we've also reached out to women in aviation and a few other national organizations as well fantastic will. We're definitely GONNA come back to the pathway program and all that good stuff but I because I mean that that maybe that's putting the cart before the horse or the way in front of the Horse Let's how did let's talk about the? Let's talk about jet. Let's let's talk about the The history how gelling become jet links sure jet links started as a Started twenty years ago as a program with about four or five beach jets that had shares so was bought a share into the aircraft than through several years. They discovered that model wasn't as good as the model of doing a charter and providing a membership program that somebody could buy one of three different level of cards into the membership and then they would have the guaranteed aircraft available to them within two hours or forty eight hours depending on the program that they They chose so that model. The one where our passengers by a membership to be part of the local jet links base is the current model that has brought us to where we are where we now have. Nineteen different locations around the US and these locations are sort of like an F. B. O. but we don't fuel and we cater to the general public. We just catered to our members who have bought a membership at jet links and then Most of these facilities are at the airport next to an F. B. O. And so the aircraft parks you walk into the Facility. You might have a meeting there You Relax and then you get on your aircraft in you go on your trip and then we bring you back to the base. We take care of your car. We facilitate anything you might need from. Catering customer service issues dry-cleaning. Whatever whatever you need we have personnel at those local basis. That will help with whatever you need. Okay I definitely different models than what I'm used to. Yeah that's for sure what you say. How many how many members are there of jet links if you can't even disclose that number you know there's a lot. I figured I don't exactly know the number but I do know that with one hundred airplanes. Wow we have to use external providers for extra lift about thirty to forty percent of our members fly on airplanes that are not jet airplanes. All so you know we might reach out to Georgia jet to do a trip for us so we might reach out to flight. Works to do a trip for us. Which we do about thirty percent of that okay and then we also vet all of the other companies. We use to make sure they're wide vern argus. They don't have any issues with safety and their pilots meet the same standards that are pilots meat and we continuously do audits on those individuals to make sure they meet our standards and everything is done properly and that our our passengers are members are enjoying a level of service that We want to make sure occurs because You Know I. It's a selling point for us that we have professional pilots safe pilots Well groomed by. Let's energetic individuals who are transporting individuals from point A. to Point B. might be afraid of flying. Maybe they don't like their bunks. So there's that aspect of it but yeah yeah. I think so one of the things that when I was taking a look deeper in a jet links as we started to develop our relationship one of the things that I saw that I thought was really interesting. Is unlike a part one. Twenty-one carrier even a some part one thirty five operators out there you have a national operation center but you also have local as you're talking about local teams that support the client. How let's let's translate that? So obviously we know how they support the client locally with rental cars dry cleaning all that kind of stuff which I think. I need that in my own life. But that's a wholly different topic. Let's let's translate that over to the actual. The front enters the pilots. How does that local Operation Mesh with the national operation in how those two systems worked together for the benefit of the pilot? Sure absolutely so. Our National Operations Center is in Omaha Nebraska in a business park. It's not actually at the airport at the National Operation Center. We have crewing. We have a flight planning We have performance charter. We have everything centrally located here because this is where our certificate office is and so we report into the Lincoln physio and so we have one certificate one operating certificate that all of our bases across the US operate.

"Really interesting way they're approaching this what happened with China with India is they were trying to be a socialist communist command economy for most of their history in the twentieth did not work they were very poor country I didn't work anymore so late in the nineteen nineties they threw the bombs out and they've all they have at them but they are democracy they voted new people in and the government shifted and became capitalist oriented and so they're very subtly thing if if they're prosperous and we approach this with that means is that your government gets a lot of tax money without even taxing people very much so that government has lots of money and now it has lots of technology and good acted education and so what they've been using that for the trying to turn their space agency into a commercial national operations they have to launch vehicles in the building the third rocket that's going to go for small sat satellites and their goal with those rockets the last decade and a half used to capture commercial market share in the commercial and an international a large Brockett satellite industry and they've been somewhat successful at the same time in the last five years they have a little more than that but more reason you'll have five years they have decided to at the same time use the talents that the developing to create a space program planetary program to send probes to other planets and they'd send probes the they sent corporate from the to the moon and then last year they tried to land a rover on the move and that failed very close to the surface they got the probe into orbit around the moon and the opener is still working and functioning but the land that crashed and they immediately said well you know what we're not gonna let this defeat us and they have now gotten funding and they have put together a program to launch a second rover and land in November of twenty twenty in those with any year they want they want to repeat it they already know what to build a know what went wrong and so they got her close to landing a got within just a couple hundred yards from the service so their clothes so they they're gonna try again at the same time they have they have now approved a program to have their own first manned mission they have a rocket their largest rocket that is capable of putting enough payload in order to put a man capsule and so they're planning a manned mission for twenty twenty two that would be up for about a week and demonstrate that they can do the same thing and that is that they are trying to become the fourth nation asked the US Russia and China to be able to put people in space with their own home grown equipment they are definitely a factor in the future and it's interesting because they are prosperous because they went capitalist and free enterprise all go with that any day and so they will at the very end because then me of trying to they wish to be able to compete with China because they see China is a direct competitor and a potential threat it's a need to be able to catch them step step by step.

"Or you can leave us an audio file with our app one a vox pop will share some of your stories tomorrow on one day. back now to our conversation with Garrett graph his new book is called the only plane in the sky and oral history of nine eleven Caitlyn was twelve years old and in the sixth grade on nine eleven Caitlyn rights I remember my teacher turning on the TV after the first plane was flown into the north tower we were watching as the second plane flew into the south tower we were watching as we realized that the shapes falling from the windows of the World Trade Center. where people. Kim tweeted I will never forget the ominous quiet when I stood outside my house the evening of September eleventh two thousand one no planes in the sky or cars on the streets everyone in their homes watching on TV Garrett I can definitely relate to that the only time that I've heard it that quiet was after hurricane Wilma hit South Florida and there were no lights and the roads were impassable that's how it was talk about what the FAA did on nine eleven they they were not ready for something like this it now and so much of that day was an improvised response by the government both at the FAA and that the military most of whom were sort of working off of plans meant to respond to an attack from outside our borders you know the military actually that day nine eleven two thousand one was in the midst of its largest annual military exercise known as global guardian that was meant to respond and repel the incoming Russian nuclear attack and so. part of the confusion that unfolds across the country that day between the military between the FAA is people trying to figure out is this real world or is this part of the exercise and the FAA there's this incredible figure in that day Ben slimy who was sort of the head of the national operations of the FAA that day he was in his literal first day on the job as the national operations commander and he it was he who first gives the order for nationwide ground stop just after the first that second plane hits to pause all planes that haven't taken off yet on the tarmac and then eventually about thirty minutes later gives the order to land all of the nation's planes at the closest airport you know there were four thousand planes in the air at that moment in every single one of them was put on the ground at the closest possible airport even through that day and again remember this is part of the confusion and the chaos that they're dealing with is out there's all sorts of normal communications problems that are happening with planes that day that happen every day but that the people that day feared were signs of hijackings and so through much of the morning the the thought was that there could be a dozen or more additional hijacked planes still in the air the last plane that we were worried about actually didn't land in till about three fifteen eastern time that afternoon so for more than five hours after the initial attacks there was still the fear that there were more attacks coming more hijacked planes in the air Melanie has a question about United flight ninety three the one that was going from Newark to San Francisco and was turned around and crashed in a field in Shanksville Pennsylvania Melanie asks I was working for a couple of DC policemen in my professional capacity not long ago they told me that the plane that was crashed in Pennsylvania was not wrestle down by the citizens on board they said it was shot down by our military has your guest heard that you're it before you answer I do want to play another clip from your work your interviews this is major heather penny she was one of the pilots whose tasked with protecting the airspace over Washington along with the tenant colonel mark Sasseville and part of that meant taking down United flight ninety three by any means necessary here's part of an interview that major penny gave to C. span back in twenty eleven for for the larger craft again it would simply be taking off the tail which would be you know I would essentially be a kamikaze and ram my aircraft into the tale of the of the aircraft and you know I give some thought to you know what I what I have time to object but. that I would need to ensure that he only got one chance I mean you don't want to object and then have this right you mean you got to be able to stick with it the whole way that's major heather penny one of the pilots was tasked with protecting the sea on nine eleven speaking to C. span back in twenty eleven tell us about flight ninety three and how that was dealt with including Melanie's question about it being shot down rather than wrestle down. yeah this is this was one this is one of the sort of most persistent it incorrect theories of that day was that flight ninety three was actually shot down by the US military and what you find when you go back that day was there were pilots like heather penny in mark's house bill. who thought that they were taking off they were they were being scrambled into the air to stop United flight ninety three but that actually none of them were ever in a position to reach flight ninety three before the passengers and crew aboard that plane took control and seized it back from the hijackers and the plane crashed in the field in Shanksville Pennsylvania at ten OO three heather penny and and marks house fills their plans actually didn't even take off until about ten thirty that morning although amid the confusion of that day they did not know that the the flight ninety three had already crash about thirty minutes earlier and that sort of one of the most poignant moments of that day comes in the White House bunker shortly after ten AM where vice president Cheney is asked for shootdown authority four hijacked airliners and I actually I spoke to commander Anthony Barnes the navy commander in the White House bunker that day who was the person who asked Dick Cheney for the shootdown authority for the on behalf of the Pentagon he's never spoken publicly before and he told me the story of that conversation for the first time and he related how actually as I explained in the book he he asked Cheney multiple times you know basically are you sure do you understand what I am asking you do you understand the order that you are giving and to the Cheney finally got fed up and and said yes like this is this is the right thing to do we need to to shoot down any hijacked planes it's flying towards a population center if we can't make contact with them you know we can't risk more lives on the ground it's an incredible order an incredible moment and and and one that that you know I sort of can't imagine what it must have been like to have been part of that conversation on nine eleven. I can't even imagine what it's like to to be able to reflect on that you know having looks back on it and said I was willing to kamikaze crash a commercial airliner to bring Americans down with hijackers if that's what it took how does that I mean you don't shake that. it now and this is this is you know one of the one of the challenges of that day is that the military was so unprepared for a threat within our borders you know the the military did not even have radars that looked within the border so they were relying on the FAA to tell them where these hijacked planes were over the course of the morning you know we were set up to repel a Russian attack and so actually the first fighters scrambled from Langley airforce base in Virginia they rush out over the ocean after their scrambled to take off because they assume they don't know what the threat is is they're taking off and they assume it's coming from outside the borders they assume it's Russians coming in from the Atlantic and that multiple sets of these planes from Massachusetts and the DC Air National Guard where heather pending in mark's house Phil were you know the end up taking off without weapons because the there were you know we just didn't have fighter jets on nine eleven that were sitting around on the tarmac armed and ready to intercept hijacked airliners. Ellen writes I could see the World Trade Center from my living room window in Brooklyn heights that morning I heard the second plane hit and looked at the smoke drifting in my direction total panic set in I was born and raised in New York City and have never been afraid in my life from that day on as we all scramble for safety I have never felt safe again. Yvonne run on our Facebook page I am deeply angry about the events it is a very selfish reason the rest of America might think that about me that day was my youngest son's ninth birthday two classmates lost relatives on those planes for years that little boy wanted to know if he had done anything wrong for something so terrible to happen on his birthday. I'm Joshua Johnson and you're listening to one a. Garrett that sense of vigilance that Alan talked about is come up in a lot of comments from many of our listeners Elizabeth rights I was only five when nine eleven happened one of the lasting changes that I've noticed the most because of nine eleven is the general sense of hyper vigilance in America that everyone must make the collective effort to always keep their eyes out in case of any attempts of terrorist attacks it does kind of scene Garrett like we're still traumatized like we're living through an eighteen year bout of P. T. S. D. that has never east since nine eleven or that we just kind of gotten used to. absolutely and I think that that is one of the things that just is so dramatically different today that's hard to recapture is it you know I I have someone that I called in the book saying that she thinks that is sort of America in children today will never know the freedom that she experienced as a child growing up but it just sort of the sense of it in a sense that that day has cost us we have never recaptured. Michael writes my sister and Campagna judge was murdered aboard American Airlines flight seventy seven the plane that crashed into the Pentagon I recall the agonizing wait for the call from American Airlines to verify that she indeed had been killed it did not come until that evening I immediately thought of my mother who would now have to bury her baby something she once told me was the worst thing a parent would have to do what's your sense of how the families of nine eleven have dealt with it these eighteen years have they begun to kind of heal from it or does it yet remain fresh. I think it very much remains fresh for many people you know even far removed from the attacks themselves one of the people that I follow through that day on nine eleven will have NO a port authority police officer was one of the two people the only two people rescue to that day from underneath the towers just him and his Sargeant John McLoughlin the only two people to survive the collapse of the twin towers on top of them and you know what will had an incredibly long hard battle both physically and mentally to to get back afterwards and and he talks about how you know he will the day that he beats PTSD will be the day that he has put in the ground but you know this is a life long struggle for many of the people who were touched by nine eleven with any big over arching theme scared in your research that stood out to you about the response to nine eleven our reactions to it what has come of it thereafter whether any kind of big lessons that you learned in your research. the thing that actually most a surprise to me in my research that's rich stood out to me in listening to and hearing and reading these stories of what nine eleven was like to experience was this sensory experience of nine eleven you know again we boil this down so often to the facts first sort of motions second but most of us have never heard what nine eleven was like to taste to smell to see how much what it was like to taste the dust after the collapse of the towers what it was like to walk through the dust in the what it was like to smell the crash of flight ninety three as the volunteer firefighters arrived at that abandoned coal mine in Shanksville Pennsylvania you know what the the heat of the inferno at the Pentagon actually felt like those to me were some of the most powerful voices and experiences that I came across in this book research because I had just never imagined what that sensory experience was like you know in the World Trade Center the the people evacuating in the stairwells the fire sprinklers were going and so they're coming down the stairs there soaking wet that water is pulling at the base of the stairwells and in their final steps towards freedom there actually weeding through shin deep knee deep water to escape the bottom of the towers in the lobby and now that we have this newly comprehensive oral history I wonder what your senses finally of how we move forward or do we or should we like you said there's this kind of ongoing trauma we've had for eighteen years what we do with it now we've got a and even clear picture of the story so that we can move forward as a nation or Kenley. I think we're still wrestling with the what to nine eleven means it and it is specially with the choices that the decision makers made after nine eleven I mean we're still locked in these wars in Afghanistan and Iraq were still fighting you know that sort of off shoots and evolving threat of Islamic terror groups respond from al Qaeda like isis today and that this is something that you know I I'm not sure our country will ever fully get over even as we hand the the reins to a new generation as we've been talking about who don't remember this day at all..

What do you think of the idea though, to show people what will happen for much longer times won't be just one day if the grid goes down? Oh, yeah. We just have no idea how the average ordinary citizen has no idea about how dependent they are on on electric for everything they have. And so it's a great idea. I think you'd get some resistance George from a lot of people. I think so, but but what's going to happen when it really occurs. They're really going to be up a creek in what I was taking my grandchildren out to dinner tonight. There was a table over a guy. I swear to God blend look at his smartphone. Maybe twenty times while we were there having dinner. And he wasn't getting text messages. He wasn't getting anything. He just kept picking up his phone looking and he put it down again. Wow. I mean, it's like an addiction. A really is George there. There's a wanted to say I really think Tommy for being on the show. Tommy is as one of those great leaders that we work together. And there's so many people that are that are behind the scenes on kind like stage crew of trying to get this thing solved. But I did want to mention one thing before we start taking calls that I want people to really see if they can pick up a copy of the national governor's association paper it get came out around two thousand sixteen seventeen. It's it's called preparing states for extreme electrical power outages. And that paper by the national governor's association really puts the onus on the governor's to say, hey, guys, I'm responsible for that for the safety and security and the an economic prosperity. Of my state here in Colorado. We have Jared police who's our newly elected governor. And it would be on his watch that he needs to look at that paper and say, well, what am I gonna do if we all become an island of of regional island strout, the United States, if something the worst thing could happen. We get hit by Karol message action or we get hit by a terrorist attack. It really puts the onus on on on the governor's to really step forward and say we're going to take the bull by the horns because as you know, Washington is so big we've been trying to get this thing passed the national level. And I think that the states oh to us to really state governors went to us to really get this thing by the by the horns, and and pull it in. Are you getting any support from Republican Senator Lisa Murkowski out of Lasca? I hear mixed things. I hear she's not for it. Then I people are saying she is. Well, I heard the same thing. I I really I can't I can't make a call on that. I just really don't know. I think people have have got the same mixed mixed reactions. She definitely needs to be. I think she needs to be proactive proactive Virginia protecting the nation because she is a critical vote as she as you know, she's critical vote on on some of the alleged pieces of legislation that happened recently. So I just wish her the best. But boy, I'll tell you what we need leaders that can really step over the line and say, hey, I'm gonna I'm gonna really be a leader in this. And I to make sure that our nation is protected. Indeed. Let's go to the phones. Let's go to John and Maui and Hawaii welcome to the program. Hey, john. Go ahead. Oh, hey, hey, I like actor guest. I wanna put him on the line here. All right. Okay. If you're going to protect the power grid, which I'm all for. What materials or how are you? Protect a substation, for example. Another saying to like that. Your guess, what makes you say? They have protected about like, would you take military view? Military airplanes may carry basis or all but kept good on that. But what makes you think they have the military John has probably been protected, and I think there are underground areas that have been protected, but we're talking about for the general folks, the power grid is not protected. I mean, you could just see from a storm. What happens when the power grows out? But in terms of technically protecting the grid Glenn. What do they do it? They have a special insulation. They're going to have to do with everything or what what are they do? Well, there's there's a lot of technical solutions as Peter pry has and end the MP commission has have stated that there are things that we can do to to be proactive to try to get those three and four hundred ton transformers protected to withstand something it's it's a little bit harder. With with a kernel message action because it puts ground induce current. In the in the ground for for a long durations of time, and that saturate, and when it comes up to the ground through the the grounding that that these big transformers have it will damage transformers as we talked about before if you get hit by a large crew message action, even on the dark side of the planet. It will destroy those. But in answer to John's question is one of the things I do when I talked to public groups like the knights of Columbus, or or the coroners or or all these public sector groups, I often put up a slide Georgia, and I think you you I hit on the head. I put a picture of Air Force One on one side. Okay. That holds eighty people and plus the president and all of his staff when they're when they're out in in executive trips. And then on the other side, I put a seven forty seven. Similar size. But with three hundred fifty four hundred passengers on there, and I say, which one needs more protection. Okay. We gonna put all this money and and effort in protecting Air Force One to save a group of of eighty or or a hundred people or we gonna put some effort into protecting the everyday common guy that is in the planes six thousand of them at any one point in time and protect them from crashing. I think the answer is clear we need to have more. We need to be more proactive at at a guarding against electro-magnetic situations. On a nation. I would hate to be in a plane plan when in EMP our solar flare hits. Yeah. There are people in our task force. There's a couple of them that I've talked to. And they said, you know, Glenn. I just really have a hard time getting on a plane. I just for me. I, you know, I I've, you know, I I don't think about it. But yes is definitely concerned. Let's go to Lou in Westwood California. First time caller, Lou. Thanks. Go ahead. I high g thanks. Thank you guys. For doing this nineteen seventy one I I gave a bid to the electrical power plan of Mexico, and they have what they do with their power plants have the old existing one. And then they built a new one beside it, and there's tubing that goes in between. I won't go into that. But I beat out the whole world price wise to provide the tubing. So then after that, they let me bid to large transformers, and I think America was still making them. And and I be in. I was the low bid. Well, the Japanese was the next Japanese government came in and subsidize and made their bid lower than mine. So then I called my congressman, and I told him what it was what what are you going to, you know? Okay. Fork up the money to how do you guys go about this? He said, oh, we don't do it. We just we just roll over and play dead. So the Japanese got the transformer bids. No com competition. Plus, they put in there that you have to buy a whole bunch of other stuff. Whenever they you whenever they send the transformers. So that was nineteen seventy one. So I was thinking to myself my God, how long is it gonna take this country before it just gets drained to the bone? And I got my answer. It looks like it's forty fifty years. It's really having effect. So gee whiz. I wish you guys the best. And really hope you swing this through low shifted lots of people out there carrying Glenn about this situation. I know I know, you know, I just I I wish the the best for this gentleman. I know that we have got to move the whole science of electromagnetic spectrum threats to to the public sector, and that means being able to testify you're like we talked about before moving it from the military side to the civilian side. Is definitely a huge challenge. It when I worked with nanotechnology. We had the same issue. We had we had people that were looking at military applications of nanotechnology and bridge over to the civilian side to say, hey, how can we start making some really good stuff, you know, from from all this potential negative things that can happen. We're kinda like that with electromagnetic spectrum of the that the science and the technology Napa location that that has been, you know, born in in nuclear warfare is now dribbling over into into the civilian sector to say, hey, we have got to figure out how we're gonna live with his how we're going to power through a solar storm or some other things. And and that is really a tough a tough issue. Because it's so we have what over seven thousand two hundred large power generation plants all over we have two thousand. Electrical utilities a responsible for operation three hundred thousand miles of interconnected distribution and high voltage transmission lines. So it's just it's just an enormous an enormous problem in this you, but we we have to start someplace, and we have a hundred plus nuclear power plants, and if those things down, and you don't cooled the the reactors were in trouble. Yeah. Coast to coast guests stand day calling in from Colorado, your neck of the woods, Glenn. Hey, stan. How are you?.

"national operations" Discussed on Newsradio 970 WFLA

"George Noory with you. Let me introduce Glenn roads. Now, the national operations director for the task force a national and homeland security he has an MBA degree with an emphasis on aerospace management. He is also an expert in grass roots, social activism and currently advocating for grid resiliency with Peter pry, whom you've just heard he's a founder of the Colorado nano-tech initiative Glenn spent thirty years at Martin Marietta, Lockheed, Martin Home Depot best buy, Lowe's, Jefferson County, government and state initiatives in various positions as well. Glenn will be with us next hour as well to take your phone calls about EMP's and solar flares, and he was with me back in October of two thousand seventeen where we were talking about this in Glen, I I've gotta tell you. I cannot think of a more important subject than protecting our power grid. No, absolutely. Absolutely, george. This is the most important thing that we could ever do it. It concerns national security and by the way back in April twenty fifth of two thousand sixteen GO a published a report that concluded the DHS apartment. Homeland security the DOD in conjunction with the industry of not established a coordinated approach to a dentist and implementing key risk management activities to address the MP threats. So this government and the White House executive order like Peter was saying before by the way, Peter I it just amazes me. How this guy travels around you know, he's up in Toronto Canada. He's going to be driving back. We've got to pray for Peter safety because it's a long road back to the US. But the guy is just a workhorse, and he's just really helping the country, and we just don't give them enough credit. I think to to the new tasks that he's doing to advocate for good resiliency. But I think that the Peter underlying. The fact that the executive order. George. I think one of the most important things that happened, and we had a space weather conference here couple of weeks ago here in boulder, one of the most important things that happened was that Bill Murtaugh who is addressing the people in the guard sake. We were talked. He talked about how the fact that. This is the first time that we've put the space weather factor with the nuclear hamp high-altitude factor because up until that point George because our government so compartmentalized, you know. The the scientists space weather guys, we're kind of focusing in on how to get early warning for corona suggestions to make sure that we, you know, get adequate notification to two airlines into our companies that hopefully we can power down the grid withstanding approach, but they weren't allowed to talk or very little allowed to to to communicate with the with the scientists that will work in the DOD stuff. So this executive order ties in both groups to bring them together, which is really monumental. And I feel that it's going to be very positive thing for the country to take the next step. Yeah. Glen, I took four of my six grandchildren out to dinner tonight and one of them. She's nineteen years old said Papa what's the show on tonight? And I you know, I told her about this in and you want to do it where you don't scare because one of them seven years old. And you don't wanna scare the living daylights out of them. But you look at them, and you go this is why we do what we do. Yes. That's that's exactly right and Peter. He has so much information on the bad stuff that can happen when we got together. Peter said, Peter you continue to talk to people about because you need to tell people about how horrible consequences are allow me to try to get maybe a more positive spin. And I think everybody including Peter really realizes that that we can solve this. We don't have to stick our head in the sand and say, oh my gosh. The thing is just totally out of control, George. We can put a positive spin on young people that are going up. It's just a matter of, you know, sticking with it making sure that the scientists start talking to the engineers because one of the things that. One of the engineers, actually, mentors me. He just said Glen that the amazing thing is that we have to get to the point where the scientists can can now start extrapolating data to the engineers where now we can start saying, hey, what what do we take the theories of the electromagnetic spectrum and now translated to how engineers can protect the grid, and we're kind of at that at that point right now. And that juncture we have to be able to in the words of a lot of engineers, and I talked to we have to be able to test to failure. Because you know, you can put a lot of stuff and a lot of theories in science and everything even even when we go on space, exploratory missions to say, hey, this is going to happen. But until we actually test some of these theories and actually apply physics to him and apply physical, Connecticut factors to these things. We'll never really know. And that's what's really hindering. Because how when's the last time we ever had an nuclear MP go off, you know. I mean, we're able to extrapolate some data from the kernel message actions in South Africa, and how they burn up transformers. But the problem that we have in the problem that I have in education. People is engineers will tell us what Glenn those those electrical transformers will survive. And I said, you can't say that because guess what we've never really tested a three hundred or four hundred transformer under an e one, and and various examples and various yields of what anyone could do to a transformer because you know, how many people have a three hundred or four hundred ten transformer to blow up, but we have to get to that point where we're gonna be able to physically test failure, different components and systems. And like, I was telling you before you know, when when we're here in Colorado when I go out and advocate for good resiliency. People always say, hey, Glenn will solar panel work. We'll solar panel system work, and we almost had some some daylight where the where we had a government program where we're gonna chest some solar panels down Jackson and cheering and Colorado Springs. And all of a sudden they pulled the rug out from under us, and we couldn't do that. And and so I have to say with all honesty, we have never had a government program to see how resilient, you know, solar panel systems are because we've never had we've never crossed that threshold, and we have to do that. Now, there's some companies like so lark, which is a solar company that has gotten some some data that says that we can do that. But George we have snake oil salesmen, coming I get people all the time saying, hey, this thing will work, and and then I send it to Arthur, Bradley, who's up at Langley. He's a scientist up there. And he said Glen, you just sold sold me a box of sand doesn't work. Yeah. I pulled that thing open. There's nothing there. So sure we just have to be continued to be persevere. Absolutely glenn. We're going to call you back at the top of the hour. You're going to take phone calls with us. So you stand by for that. And we will do that very special guest. Glenn roads. We'll take calls with you next hour. Now, let me introduce you to Tommy Waller vice president for special projects at the center for security policy. Tommy comes to the Senate with more than sixteen years as an infantry officer expeditionary ground reconnaissance officer in the Marine Corps and service spending multiple deployments enough ghanistan Iraq Africa and South America is formal education includes numerous military schools and colleges a bachelor's degree in international relations from two lane university and executive education and high stakes negotiation from the warden school of business. Tommy, thank you for serving by the way. Really appreciate what you've done for our country. George. I appreciate it. You know reminds me folks, often thanked me for my service. And you know, what I wanna do is just illustrate for your listeners value of the service of those that keep the lights on, you know. All. Testify before the Texas Senate this month on this topic. And and I mentioned that you know, the folks that work in the Electric Industry that are actually motivated to protect that industry against all hazards, including EMT do more than I will ever do in uniform for the American people. And I think that's probably what you're feeling when you're with your family members at dinner, and you're looking at your grandkids and thinking about the the prospect of losing that grid the service provided by those who can keep it going. Absolutely tell me how did you get involved in this? Well, billion job is with the center for security policy as you mentioned and one of the efforts at the center for security policy has had over the past decade is to reinforce the work that national heroes like Dr Peter pry have been doing to secure our nation's grid against all hazards. And so my boss Frank Gaffney began what's known as the secure the grid coalition back in two thousand ten just as a sponsor organization sponsors, this broad coalition of national security experts. Of course, Dr prize, one of the key most senior leaders of that coalition. It's so it's my job on the country to educate people about this important topic really a topic that I was not indicated on as a member of the military. You know, the time that I spent on active duty, you know, the the subject of EMP was not one that was brought to my attention. And so it's been my. Privilege to go all around the country and to start working on getting the next generation educated on this immensely important topic and mobilized to address it. Well, I begin to learn about this from f Michael Maluku in William force chin, those two individuals our heroes as far as I'm concerned for coming to the forefront with their research and their books on the powers and the dangers of EMP or solar flares, and you know, prior to that Tommy, you know, I wasn't into it as much as I am now. Now, I'm obsessed with trying to get the grit fix. I'm doing what I can media wise what you folks doing politically to get this done. George. What's your doing is of immense value? I mean Americans need to hear about this. And in terms like EMP need to be calm. More of a, you know, a household term, unless they, you know, hey, will your a Kim foil hat person or your quote apocalyptic trapper, you know, the more people we can have in media that are that are speaking the truth about this the better. So we thank you for that. What took president's so long to do what finally President Donald Trump did? And that was signed his order to say, let's think about getting this done, folks. So I think that President Trump is a hero for dressing. This is a big problem. This is not an easy problem to fix. And that's that's something that the president. You know, he he refuses to kick the can down the road. I remember back in may two thousand fifteen then candidates all we had the the opportunity to brief him on this. Dr pry was the primary briefer for candidate Trump. We we took the opportunity to educate as many presidential candidates. As would listen to to, you know, most important national security topics that we considered a candidate ought to be aware of. And this, of course, is one of them Dr. Candidate Trump about this. And he committed to addressing it. And this is a man who keeps his promises, you know. And so I think it just took a go getter to be a spot to go after this really really tough problem. So as Dr probably mentioned, I pray that the people in government. We'll work hard to do their jobs could begin actually securing this grit. There are many civil servants in government that wants to do the right thing. And so this executive order now gives them top cover that. They can do it did all the candidates time seem willing to listen about this. Many of them. Did you know, we Dr Ben Carson, and he mmediately was with Dr Carson still is, you know, a very concerned about this topic. So at least the candidates that that were involved in our national security action summit, we did four of them before the election really just as an educational opportunity for candidates, and for all the people who are going to be voting for next president, you know, and I would say that they were open to this. But you know, they were I was kind of scratching my head, you know, nothing against Jeb Bush. But I remember, you know, he didn't participate in our summit. But I remember having one of our coalition members at a at a town hall event asked the question about the MP, you know, and and and Mr Bush mentioned I hadn't heard of this until just recently, and I'm thinking to myself, this is the brother of the. The president the former president of the United States America. How has he never heard of the? And former governor of a state of a state. Right. Exactly. So this is this is the thing that our mission is is working so hard to do is to really bring this very real topic to the people who need to note, which predominantly is the American people, and of course, their policy makers that they elect Mike concern Tommy is that something happens before we get the grid protected..

Tommy, thank you for serving by the way. Really appreciate what you've done for our country. I appreciate it. You know reminds me folks Austin thanked me for my service. And you know, what I wanna do is just illustrate for your listeners, the value of the service of those that keep the lights on, you know, all the defy testify before the Texas Senate this on this topic. And I mentioned that you know, the folks that work in the Electric Industry that are actually motivated to protect that industry against all hazards, including EMP knew more than I will ever do in uniform for the American people.

Quote, apocalyptic trapper, you know, the more people we can have in media that are that. Are speaking the truth about this the better. So we we thank you for that, sir.

And so I think it just took a go getter to be a spot to go out. After this really really tough problem. So as Dr prime mention, I just I pray that the people in government will work hard to do their jobs to begin actually securing this grid. There are many civil servants in government that wants to do the right thing..

"And welcome back to coast to coast, George Noory with you. Let me introduce Glenn roads. Now, the national operations director for the task force on national and homeland security. He has an MBA degree with an emphasis on aerospace management. He is also an expert in grass roots, social activism and currently advocating for grid resiliency with Peter pry, whom you've just heard he's a founder of the Colorado nano-tech initiative Glenn spent thirty years at Martin Marietta Lockheed, Martin Home Depot best buy Lowe's, Jefferson County government than state initiatives in various positions as well. Glenn will be with us next hour as well to take your phone calls about EMP's and solar flares, and he was with me back in October of two thousand seventeen where we were talking about this in Glen, I I've gotta tell you. I cannot think of a more important subject than protecting our power grid. No absolu-. Lutely absolutely Georgia is the most important thing that we could ever do it. It concerns national security and by the way back in April twenty fifth of two thousand sixteen GO a published a report that concluded the DHS apartment. Homeland security the DOD in conjunction with the industry of not established a coordinated approach to a dentist and implementing key risk management activities to address the MP threats. So this government and the White House executive order like Peter was saying before by the way, Peter. It just amazes me. How this guy travels around you know, he's up in Toronto Canada. He's gonna be driving back. We got pray for Peter safety because it's a long road back to the US. But the guy is just a workhorse, and he's just really helping the country, and we just don't give them enough credit. I think to to the nervous tasks he's doing to advocate for good resiliencey. But I think that the Peter underline the fact that the executive order. George. I think one of the most important things that happened, and we had a space weather conference here couple of weeks ago here in boulder, one of the most important things. I saw that happened was that Bill Murtaugh who is addressing the people in the infra guard sig we were talked. He talked about how the fact that this is the first time that we've put the space weather factor with the nuclear hemp high-altitude factor because up until that point. Because our government so compartmentalized, you know. The the scientists the space weather guys were kind of focusing in on how to get early warning for Koroma suggestions to make sure that we, you know, get adequate notification to two airlines into our companies, hopefully, we could down the grid withstanding approach, but they weren't allowed to talk or very little allowed to to to communicate with the with the scientists that will work in DOD stuff. So this executive order ties in both groups to bring them together, which is really monumental. I feel that it's going to be very positive thing for the country to take the next step took four of my six grandchildren out to dinner tonight in the one of them. She's nineteen years old. Said Papa what's the show on tonight? I told her about this in in. You wanna do it where you don't scare because one of them seven years old. And you don't want to scare the living daylights out of them. But you look at them, and you go this is why we do what we do. Yes. That's that's exactly right and Peter. He has so much information on the bad stuff that can happen. We got together. Peter. I would just said, you know, Peter, you continue to talk to people about because you need to tell people about how horrible the consequences are allow me to try to get maybe a more positive spin. And I think everybody including Peter really realizes that that we can solve this. We don't have to stick our head in the sand and say, oh my gosh. The thing is just totally out of control, George. We can put a positive spin on young people that are going up. It's just a matter of, you know, sticking with it making sure that the scientists start talking to the engineers because one of the things that one of the engineers, actually mentors me. He just said Glen that the impeachment mazing thing is that we have to get to the point where the scientists can can now start extrapolating data to the engineers where now we can start saying, hey, what what do we take the theory? Series of the electromagnetic spectrum and now translated to how engineers can protect the grid. And we're kind of at that at that point right now juncture, we have to be able to in the words of a lot of engineers that I talked to we have to be able to test to failure. Because as you know, you can put a lot of stuff and a lot of theories in science and everything even even when we go on space, exploratory missions to say, hey, this is going to happen. But until we actually test some of these theories and actually apply physics to him and apply physical, Connecticut factors to these things. We'll never really know. And that's what's really hindering because how when's the last time we ever had an nuclear PICO off. You know, we're able to extrapolate some data from the kernel message actions in South Africa, and how they burn up transformers. But the problem that we have in the problem that I have in education people. Is site. Ingineers will tell us what Glenn those those electrical transformers will survive. And I said, you can't say that because guess what we've never really tested a three hundred or four hundred ton transformer under an e one, and and various examples and various yields of what anyone could do to a transformer because you know, how many people have a three hundred or four hundred ten transformer to blow up, but we have to get to that point where we're gonna be able to physically testify, your different components and systems. And like, I was telling you before you know, when one way here in Colorado advocate for good resiliency, people always say, hey, Glenn. Woah, solar panel, work will solar panel system work, and we almost had some some daylight where the where we had a government program where we're going to test some solar panels down Jackson and sharing Colorado Springs. And all of a sudden they pulled out. Out from under us, and we couldn't do that. And and so I have to say with all honesty, we have never had a government program to see how resilient, you know, solar panel systems are because we've never had we never crossed that threshold, and we have to do that. Now, there's some companies like so lark, which is a solar company that has gone some some data that says that we can do that. But George we have snake oil salesmen coming people all the time saying, hey, this will work, and and then I send it to Arthur, Bradley, who's up at Langley. He's a scientist up there. And he said Glen, he just sold. He sold me a box of. Does a word. I pulled up big open. There's nothing there. So George we just have to be continued to be persevered. Absolutely glenn. We're going to call you back at the top of the hour. You're going to take phone calls with us. So you stand by for that in. We will do that very special guest. Glenn roads will take calls with you next hour. Now, let me introduce you to Tommy Waller vice president for special projects at the center for security policy. Tommy comes to the Senate with more than sixteen years as an infantry officer expeditionary ground reconnaissance officer in the Marine Corps and service spending multiple deployments, and if ghanistan Iraq Africa and South America is formal education includes numerous military schools and colleges a bachelor's degree in international relations from to lane university and executive education and high stakes negotiation from the warden school of business. Tommy, thank you for serving by the way. Really appreciate what you've done for our country. I appreciate it. You know reminds me folks, often thanked me for my service. And you know, what I wanna do is just illustrate your listeners the value of the service of those that keep the lights on you know, all. And that's the five before the Texas Senate this this topic. And I mentioned that you know, the folks that work in the Electric Industry that are actually motivated to protect that industry against all hazards, including EMP knew more than I will ever do in uniform for the American people. And I think that's probably what you're feeling when you're with your family members at dinner, and you're looking at grandkids and thinking about the the prospect of losing that Grigg the service provided by those who can keep it going. Absolutely. Did you get involved in this? Well, my civilian job is with a center Harry policy as you mentioned and one of the efforts at the center for policy has had over the past decade is to reinforce the work that national heroes like Dr Peter pry have been doing to secure our nation's grid against all hazards. And so my boss Frank Gaffney began what's known as the secure the grid coalition of back in two thousand ten just as a sponsor are we're gonna nation sponsors this broad coalition of national security. Experts course, Dr prize one of the key most senior leaders of that coalition. It's so it's my job to go on the country to educate people about this important topic really a topic that I was not indicated on as a member of the military. You know, the time that I spent on active duty, you know, the the subject of EMP was not one that was brought to my attention. And so it's been my. Privilege to go all around the country and to start working on getting the next generation educated on this immensely important topic and mobilized to address it. Begin to learn about this from Michael in William force, gen those two individuals our heroes as far as I'm concerned for coming to the forefront with their research and their books on the powers and the dangers of EMP or solar flares, and you know, prior to that tummy, you know, I wasn't into it as much as I am now. Now, I'm obsessed with trying to get the grid fix. I'm doing what I can media wise what you folks doing politically to get this done. George what you're doing is of immense value. I mean Americans need to hear about this. And in terms like EMP need to be calm. More of a, you know, a household term, unless they, you know, hey, will your a Kim boil hat person or your quote, apocalyptic trapper, you know, the more people we can have in media that are that. Are speaking the truth about this the better. So we think that, sir. What took president's so long to do what finally President Donald Trump did? And that was sign his order to say, let's think about getting this done, folks. So I think that President Trump is a hero for a dressing. This is a big problem. This is not an easy problem to fix and that that's something that the president. You know, he he refuses the kick the can down the road. I remember back in may two thousand fifteen then candidate draw we had the. Yup. Retune ity to brief him on this. Dr price was the primary briefer for candidate Trump. We we took the opportunity to educate as many presidential candidates. As would listen to to to, you know, most important national security topics that we considered a candidate ought to be aware of. And as of course is one of them Dr. Candidate Trump about this. And he committed you know to addressing it. And this is a man who keeps his promises, you know. And so I think it just took a go getter to be a spot to go after this really really tough problem. So as Dr prime mentioned, I pray that the people in government will work hard to do their jobs to begin actually, securing this grit. There are many civil servants in government that want to do the right thing and said if executive order now gives them top cover so that they can do it did all the candidate time seem willing to listen about this. Many of them. Did you know, we breathed Dr Ben Carson, and he immediately was with Dr Carson still is you know, a very concerned about this topic. So at least the candidates that that were involved in our national security actions. We did four of them before the election really just as an educational opportunity for candidates, and for all the people who are going to be voting for next president, you know, and I would say that they were open to this. But you know, there were times I was kind of scratching my head, you know, nothing against Jeb Bush. But I remember, you know, he didn't participate in our so much. But I remember having one of our coalition members at a at a town hall event asked the question about the MP, you know, and and and Mr. Boyce mentioned, well, you know, I hadn't heard of this until just recently. And I'm thinking to myself, this is the brother of the. The president the former president of the United States America. How has he never heard of the way? Former governor of a state of the state, right? Right. Exactly..

And I think that's probably what you're feeling when you're with your family members at dinner, and you're looking at your grandkids and thinking about the the prospect of losing that grid the service provided by those who can keep it going. Absolutely tell me how did you get involved in this? We'll civilian job is with the center for Harry policy as you mentioned and one of the efforts at the center policy has had over the past decade is to reinforce the work that national heroes like Dr Peter pry have been doing to secure our nation's grid against all hazards. And so my boss Frank Gaffney began what's known as the secure the grid coalition of back in two thousand ten just as a sponsor, our organization sponsors, this broad coalition of national security experts. Of course, Dr prize, one of the key most senior leaders of that coalition. So it's my job on the country and to educate people about this important topic really a topic that I was not advocated on as a member of the military. You know, the time that I spent on active duty, you know, the the subject of EMP was not one that was brought to my attention. And so it's been my. Privilege to to go all around the country and to start working on getting the next generation educated on this immensely important topic and mobilized to address it. Well, you know, I begin to learn about this from f- Michael Maluku in William force, gen those two individuals our heroes as far as I'm concerned for coming to the forefront with their research and their books on the powers and the dangers of EMP or solar flares, and you know, prior to that Tommy, you know, I wasn't into it as much as I am now. Now, I'm obsessed with trying to get the grid fix. I'm doing what I can media wise what you folks doing politically to get this done Georgia. What's your doing is of immense value? I mean Americans need to hear about this. And in terms like EMP need to be calm more. You know, a household term unless they, you know, hey will ura Kim boil hat person or your. Quote, apocalyptic prepar, you know, the more people we can have in media that are that. Are speaking the truth about this the better. So we thank you for that, sir. What took presidents so long to do what finally President Donald Trump did? And that was signed his order to say, let's think about getting this done, folks. So I think that President Trump is a hero for dressing this. This is a big problem. This is not an easy problem to fix and that that's something that the president. You know, he he refuses the kick the can down the road. I remember back in may two thousand fifteen then candidates. We had the the opportunity to brief him on this. Dr pry was the primary briefer for candidate Trump. We we took the opportunity to educate as many presidents candidates. As would listen to the to the, you know, most important national security topics that we considered a candidate ought to be aware of. And as of course is one of them. Dr price candidates roll about this, and he committed you know to who addressing it. And this is a man who keeps his promises, you know. And so I think it just took a go getter to be a spot to go. After this really really tough problem, though, as Dr prime mention, I just I pray that the people in government will work hard to do their jobs to begin actually, securing this grit. There are many civil servants in government that wants to do the right thing. And so this executive order now gives them top cover. So that they can do it did all the candidates sets. A time seem willing to listen about this many of them did, you know, we the Dr Ben Carson, and he immediately was with Dr Carson still is you know, a very concerned about this topic. So at least the the candidates that.

"And welcome back to coast to coast, George Noory with you. Let me introduce Glenn roads. Now, the national operations director for the task force a national and homeland security he has an MBA degree with an emphasis on aerospace management. He is also an expert in grass roots, social activism and currently advocating for grid resiliency with Peter pry, whom you've just heard he's a founder of the Colorado nano-tech initiative Glenn spent thirty years at Martin Marietta Lockheed, Martin Home Depot best buy Lowe's, Jefferson County government than state initiatives in various positions as well. Glenn will be with us next hour as well to take your phone calls about EMP's and solar flares, and he was with me back in October of two thousand seventeen where we were talking about this in Glen, I I've got to tell you. I cannot think of a more important subject than protecting our. Power grid. No, absolutely, absolutely, George. This is the most important thing that we could ever do it. It concerns the national security and by the way back in April twenty fifth of two thousand sixteen GO a published a report that concluded the DHS apartment. Homeland security the DOD in conjunction with the industry of not established a coordinated approach to a dentist and implementing key risk management activities to address the MP threats. So this government and the White House executive order like Peter was saying before by the way, Peter I it just amazes me. How this guy travels around you know, he's up in Toronto Canada. He's going to be driving back. We got pray for Peter safety because it's a long road back to the US. But the guy is just the workhorse, and he's just really helping the country, and we just don't give them enough accredit. I think to to the normal tasks he's doing to advocate for good resiliency. But I think that the Peter underline the fact that the executive order. George. I think one of the most important things that happened, and we had a space weather conference here couple of weeks ago here in boulder, one of the most important things. I saw that happened. Was that Bill Murtaugh who is addressing the people in the info guard sig we were talked. He talked about how the fact that this the first time that we put the space weather factor with the nuclear hemp high-altitude factor because up until that point because our government is so compartmentalized, you know. The the scientists space weather guys, we're kind of focusing in on how to get early warning for Koroma suggestions to make sure that we, you know, get adequate notification to two airlines into our companies that hopefully we could down the grid withstanding approach, but they weren't allowed to talk or or very little allowed to to to communicate with the with the scientists that will work in the DOD stuff. So this executive order ties in both groups to bring them together, which is really monumental. And I feel that it's going to be very positive thing for the country to take the next step Glenn. I took four of my six grandchildren out to dinner tonight in the one of them. She's nineteen years old said Papa what's the show on tonight? You know, I told her about this in in. You wanna do it where you don't scare because one of them seven years old, and you don't want to scare the living daylights out of them. But you look at them, and you go this is why we do what we do. Yes. That's that's exactly right and Peter. He has so much information on the bad stuff that can happen. When we got together. We just said, you know, Peter, you continue to talk to people about because you need to tell people about how horrible the consequences are allow me to try to get maybe a more positive spin. And I think everybody including Peter really realizes that that we can solve this. We don't have to stick our head in the sand and say, oh my gosh. The thing is just totally out of control, George. We can put a positive spin on young people that are going up. It's just a matter of, you know, sticking with it. Making sure that the scientists start talking to the engineers because one of the things that one of the engineers, actually mentors me. He just said Glen that the amazing thing is that we have to get to the point where the scientist can can now start extrapolating data to the engineers where now we can start saying, hey, what what what are we take the theories of the electromagnetic spectrum and now translated to how engineers can protect the grid, and we're kind of at that at that point right now. And that juncture we have to be able to in the words of a lot of engineers, and I talked to we have to be able to test failure. Because as you know, you can put a lot of stuff and a lot of theories in science and everything even even when we go on space, exploratory missions to say, hey, this is going to happen. But until we actually test some of these theories and actually apply. Physics to him and apply physical, Connecticut factors to these things. We'll never really know. And that's what's really hindering us. Because how when's the last time we ever had an nuclear PICO off. You know? I mean, we're able to extrapolate some data from the kernel message actions in South Africa, and how they burn up transformers. But the problem that we have in the problem that I have an education people is engineers will tell us what Glenn those those electrical transformers will survive. And I said, you can't say that because guess what we've never really tested a three hundred or four hundred ton transformer under an e one, and and various examples and various yields of what anyone could do to a transformer because you know, how many people a three hundred or four hundred ten transformer to blow up, but we have to get to that point where we're gonna be able to physically test failure different component. Agents and systems, and like I was telling you before you know, when when we're here in Colorado when I go out and advocate for good resiliency. People always say, hey, Glenn will solar panel work will solar panel system work, and we almost had some some daylight where the where we had a government program where we're going to test some solar panels down Jackson and cheering and Colorado Springs. And all of a sudden they pulled the rug out from under us, and we couldn't do that. And and so I have to say with all honesty, we have never had a government program to see how resilient, you know, solar panel systems are because we've never had we never crossed that threshold, and we have to do that. Now, there's some companies like so lark, which is a solar company that has gotten some some data that says that we can do that. But George we have snake oil salesmen coming people all the time saying, hey, this thing will work, and and then I send it to Arthur, Bradley. Langley. He's a scientist up there. And he said Glen you just sold sold me a box of sand. Doesn't work. Yeah. I pulled up thing. Open their stuff in there. So George we just have to be continued to be persevered absolute, Glenn we're going to call you back at the top of the hour. You're going to take phone calls with us. So you stand by for that. And we will do that very special guest. Glenn roads. We'll take calls with you next hour. Now, let me introduce you to Tommy Waller vice president for special projects at the center for security policy. Tommy comes to the center with more than sixteen years as an infantry officer expeditionary ground reconnaissance officer in the Marine Corps and service spending multiple deployments enough ghanistan Iraq Africa and South America is formal education includes numerous military schools and colleges a bachelor's degree in international relations from tha lane university and executive education in high stakes negotiation from the Wharton school of business. Tommy, thank you for serving by the way. Really appreciate what you've done for our country. George. I appreciate it. You know reminds me folks Austin thanked me for my service. And you know, what I wanna do is just illustrate for your listeners, the value of the service of those that keep the lights on you know, all. Testify before the Texas Senate this this topic. And I mentioned that you know, the folks that work in the Electric Industry that are actually motivated to protect that industry against all hazards, including EMT do more than I will ever do in uniform for the American people. And I think that's probably what you're feeling when you're with your family members at dinner and looking at your grandkids and thinking about the the prospect of losing that grid the service provided by those who can keep it going.

I go around the country to educate people about this important topic really a topic that I was not educated on as a member of the military.

And so it's been my privilege to to go all around the country and to start working on getting the next generation educated on this immensely important topic and mobilized to address it. Well, you know, I begin to learn about this from f- Michael Maluku in William force chin, those two individuals our heroes as far as I'm concerned for coming to the forefront with their research and their books.

And this is a man who keeps his promises, you know. And so I think it just took a go getter to be spot to go out. This really really tough problem. So as Dr probably mentioned, I pray that the people in government, we'll work hard to do their jobs to begin actually securing this grid. There are many civil servants in government that wants to do the right thing. And so this executive order now gives them top cover. So that they can do it did all the candidates at the time seem willing to listen about this. Many of them. Did you know, we breathed Dr Ben Carson, and he immediately was with Dr Carson still is you know, a very concerned about this topic. So at least the candidates that that were.

Program to see how resilient, you know, solar panel systems are because we've never had we've never crossed that threshold, and we have to do that. Now, there's some companies like so lark, which is a solar company that has gotten some some data that says that we can do that. But George we have snake oil salesmen, coming all people all the time saying, hey, this thing will work, and and then I send it to Arthur, Bradley, who's up at Langley. He's a scientists up there. And he said Glen you just sold. So me a box of sand. Does it work? Yeah. I pulled up thing open. There's nothing there. So George we just have to be continued to be persevere. Absolutely glenn. We're gonna call you back at the top of the hour. You're going to take phone calls with us. So you stand by for that. And we will do that very special guest. Glenn roads. We'll take calls with you next hour. Now, let me introduce you to Tommy Waller vice president for special projects at the center for security policy. Tommy comes to the center with more than sixteen years as an infantry officer expeditionary ground reconnaissance officer in the Marine Corps and service spanning multiple deployments. Enough ghanistan Iraq Africa, South America. His formal education includes numerous military schools colleges a bachelor's degree in international relations from to lane university and executive education and high stakes negotiation from the Wharton school of business. Tommy, thank you for serving by the way. Really appreciate what you've done for our country. George. I appreciate it. You know reminds me folks, often thanked me for my service. And you know, what I wanna do is just illustrate for your listeners, the value of the service those that keep the lights on you know, all. By testify before the Texas Senate this on this topic. And I mentioned that you know, the folks that work in the Electric Industry that are actually motivated to protect that industry against all hazards, including EMP you more than I will ever do in uniform for the American people. And I think that's probably what you're feeling when you're with your family members at dinner, and you're looking at grandkids and thinking about the the prospect of losing that grid the service provided by those who can keep it going. Absolutely tell me how did you get involved in this? Well, my civilian job is with the center for policy as you mentioned and one of the efforts at the center for policy has had over the past decade is to reinforce the work that national heroes like Dr Peter pry have been doing to secure our nation's grid against all hazards. And so my boss Frank Gaffney began what's known as the secure the grid coalition back in two thousand ten just as a sponsor, our organization sponsors, this broad coalition of national security experts. Dr price one of the key most senior leaders of that coalition. It's my job to go around the country and to educate people about this important topic really a topic that I was not indicated on as a member of the military. You know, the time that I spent on active duty, you know, the the subject of EMP was not one that was brought to my tension. And so it's been my. Privilege to go all around the country and to start working on getting the next generation educated on this immensely important topic and mobilized to address it. Well, you know, I begin to learn about this from f- Michael Maluku in William force chin. Those two individuals are heroes as far as I'm concerned for coming to the forefront with their research and their books on the powers and the dangers of EMP or shoulder flares and prior to that Tommy, you know, I wasn't into it as much as I am now. Now, I'm obsessed with trying to get the grid fix. I'm doing what I can media wise what you folks doing politically to get this done Georgia. What you're doing is of value. I mean Americans need to hear about this. And in terms like EMP need to be calm. More of a, you know, a household term, unless they, you know, hey, will your oil hat person or your. Quote, apocalyptic trapper, you know, the more people we can have in media that are that. Are speaking the truth about this the better. So we thank you for that, sir. What took president's so long to do what finally President Donald Trump did? And that was sign his order to say, let's think about getting this done, folks. You know, I think that President Trump is a hero for a dress. This is a big problem. This is not an easy problem to fix and that that's something that the president. You know, he he refuses to kick the can down the road. I remember back in may two thousand fifteen then candidates. We had the the opportunity to brief him on this. Dr pry was the primary briefer for candidate Trump. We we took the opportunity to educate as many presidents candidates. As would listen to the to the, you know, most important national security topics that we considered a candidate ought to be aware of. And this, of course, is one of them Dr. Candidate Trump about this. And he committed to addressing it. And this is a man who keeps his promises, you know. And so I think it just took a go getter to be a spot to go after this really really tough problem. So as Dr probably mentioned, I pray that the people in government will work hard to do their jobs to begin actually securing this grid. There are many civil servants in government that wants to do the right thing. And so this executive order now gives them top cover that. They can do it did all the candidates at the time seem willing to listen about this. Many of them. Did you know, we Dr Ben Carson, and he mmediately was with Dr Carson still is, you know, very concerned about this topic. So at least the the candidates that that were involved in our national security actions of it. We did for before the election really just as an educational opportunity for candidates, and for all the people who are going to be voting for next president, you know, and I would say that they were open to this. But you know, there were times I was kind of scratching my head, you know, nothing against a Jeb Bush. But I remember, you know, he didn't participate in our summit. But I remember having one of our coalition members at a town hall that asked the question about him p, you know, and and and Mr Bush mentioned what you know, I hadn't heard of this until just recently, and I'm thinking to myself, this is the brother of the. The president the former president of the United States America. How has he never heard of them? And former governor of a state of the state. Right. Exactly..

"And welcome back to coast to coast, George Noory with you. Let me introduce Glenn roads. Now, the national operations director for the task force on national and homeland security. He has an MBA degree with an emphasis on aerospace management. He is also an expert in grass roots, social activism and currently advocating for grid resiliency with Peter pry, whom you've just heard he's a founder of the Colorado nano-tech initiative Glenn spent thirty years at Martin Marietta Lockheed, Martin Home Depot best buy Lowe's, Jefferson County government than state initiatives in various positions as well. Glenn will be with us next hour as well to take your phone calls about EMP's and solar flares, and he was with me back in October of two thousand seventeen where we were talking about this in Glen, I I've gotta tell you. I cannot think of a more important subject than protecting our power grid. No, absolutely. Absolutely, george. This is the most important thing that we could ever do it. It concerns the national security and by the way back in April twenty fifth of two thousand sixteen GO a published a report that concluded the DHS apartment. Homeland security the DOD in conjunction with the industry of not established a coordinated approach to a dentist and implementing key risk management activities to address the MP threats. So this government and the White House executive order like Peter was saying before by the way, Peter I it just amazes me. How this guy travels around you know, he's up in Toronto Canada. He's going to be driving back. We gotta pray for Peter safety because it's a long road back to the US. But the guy is just a workhorse, and he's just really helping the country, and we just don't give them enough credit. I think to to the numerous tasks he's doing to advocate for good resilience. But I think that the Peter. Underline the fact that the executive order. George. I think one of the most important things that happened, and we had a space weather conference here couple of weeks ago here in boulder, one of the most important things. I saw that happened was that Bill Murtaugh who is addressing the people in the guard sig we were talked. He talked about how the fact that this the first time that we put the space weather factor with the nuclear hemp high-altitude factor because up until that point is, you know, George because our government is so compartmentalized, you know. The the scientists space weather guys, we're kind of focusing in on how to get early warning for Koroma suggestions to make sure that we, you know, get adequate notification to two airlines into our companies that hopefully we could down the grid northe- withstanding approach, but they weren't allowed to talk or or very little allowed to to to communicate with the with the scientists that will work in the DOD stuff. So this executive order ties in both groups to bring them together, which is really monumental. And I feel that it's going to be very positive thing for the country to take the next step Glenn. I took four of my six grandchildren out to dinner tonight and one of them. She's nineteen years old said Papa what's the show on tonight? And I you know, I told her about this in you wanna do it where you don't scare because one of them seven years old. Oh, yeah. And you don't wanna scare the living daylights out of them. But you look at them, and you go this is why we do what we do. Yes. That's that's exactly right and Peter. He has so much information on the bad stuff that can happen when we got together here. We just said, you know, Peter, you continue to talk to people about 'cause you need to tell people about how horrible the consequences are allow me to try to get maybe a more positive spin. And I think everybody including Peter really realizes that that we can solve this. We don't have to stick our head in the sand and say, oh my gosh. The thing is just totally out of control, George. We can put a positive spin on young people that are going up. It's just a matter of, you know, sticking with it making sure that the scientists start talking to the engineers because one of the things that. One of the engineers that actually mentors me. He just said Glen that the amazing thing is that we have to get to the point where the scientists can can now start extrapolating data to the engineers where now we can start saying, hey, what what are we take the theories of the electromagnetic spectrum and now translated to how engineers can protect the grid, and we're kind of at that at that point right now. And that juncture we have to be able to in the words of a lot of engineers that I talked to we have to be able to test to failure. Because you know, you can put a lot of stuff and a lot of theories in science and everything even even when we go on space, exploratory missions to say, hey, this is going to happen. But until we actually test some of these theories and actually apply physics to him and apply physical, Connecticut factors to these things. We'll never really know. And that's what's really hindering. Because how when's the last time we ever had an nuclear MP go off, you know. I mean, we're able to extrapolate some data from the kernel message actions in South Africa, and how they burn up transformers. But the problem that we have in the problem that I have an educated people is engineers will tell us what Glenn those those electrical transformers will survive. And I said, you can't say that because guess what we've never really tested a three hundred or four hundred time transformer under an e one, and and various sects example. So and various yields of what anyone could do to a transformer because you know, how many people have at three hundred or four hundred ten transformer to blow up, but we have to get to that point where we're gonna be able to physically test failure, different components and systems. And like, I was telling you before you know, when when we're here in Colorado when I go out and advocate for good resiliency. People always say, hey, Glenn will solar panel work will solar panel system work, and we almost had some some daylight where the where we had a government program where we're going to test them solar panels down at Jackson jeering, collartoo springs, and all of a sudden they pulled the rug out from under us, and we couldn't do that.

I get people all the time saying, hey, this thing will work, and and then I send it to Arthur, Bradley, who's up at Langley. He's a scientist up there. And he said Glen, you just sold sold me a box of a word. Yeah. I pulled up thing open. There's nothing there. So George we just have to be continued to be persevere. Absolutely glenn. We're going to call you back at the top of the hour. You're going to take phone calls with us. So you stand by for that in. We will do that that I bury special guest Glenn roads. We'll take calls with you next hour. Now, let me introduce you to Tommy Waller vice president for special projects at the center for security policy.

My civilian job is with the center for Harry policy, as you mentioned and one of the efforts at the center for policy has had over the past decade is to reinforce the work that national heroes like Dr Peter pry have been doing to secure our nation's grid against all hazards. And so my boss Frank Gaffney began what's known as the secure the grid coalition back in two thousand just as a sponsor, our organization sponsors, this broad coalition of national security experts.
