Jan 25 - Here We Go With This Again: Feds Uncover Plan To Attack Power Grid
 

 
Extremists see US power grid as target, gov’t report warns

WASHINGTON (AP) — Extremist groups in the United States appear to increasingly view attacking the power grid as a means of disrupting the country, according to a government report aimed at law enforcement agencies and utility operators.

Domestic extremists “have developed credible, specific plans to attack electricity infrastructure since at least 2020,” according to the report from the Department of Homeland Security’s Office of Intelligence and Analysis. The document, dated Monday, was obtained Tuesday by The a*sociated Press.

The report warns that extremists “adhering to a range of ideologies will likely continue to plot and encourage physical attacks against electrical infrastructure,” which includes more than 6,400 power plants and 450,000 miles of high-voltage transmission lines that span the country.

Experts on the U.S. power grid have pointed out that it would be difficult to knock out power to the nation given the size and decentralized nature of the grid. The DHS report also notes that attackers, without inside help at least, would be unlikely to produce widespread, multistate outages, though they could still do damage and cause injuries.

It comes as both the FBI and DHS have repeatedly warned in recent months that the U.S. faces a heightened threat from domestic extremists.

The grid is viewed as a target, based on a series of incidents in recent years as well as online discussions in extremist and conspiracy-minded forums, because transmission lines and substations are often in remote areas and because outages may result in frustration and divisions within American society, a federal law enforcement official said.

“They feel that disrupting the electrical supply will disrupt the ability of government to operate,” the official said on condition of anonymity to discuss a report that has not been publicly released. “And, secondly, by conducting attacks against the communications and electrical infrastructure, it will actually accelerate the coming civil war that they anticipate because it will disrupt the lives of so many people that they will lose faith in government.”

Some of these concerns are nearly a decade old. In 2014, the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission ordered grid operators to increase security following a sniper attack on the Pacific Gas & Electric Company’s Metcalf Transmission Substation in an isolated area southeast of San Jose, California. No arrests have been made in an a*sault that stunned authorities and could have disrupted power to Silicon Valley.

DHS noted the Metcalf incident in the report along with more recent incidents, including a suspected plot by white supremacist extremists to attack power stations in the southeastern U.S. as part of an effort to cause havoc if they disagreed with the outcome of the November 2020 election.

Asked about the report, the Edison Electric Institute, an a*sociation of companies that provide power to about 70% of the U.S. population, said it has been cooperating for years with the government to respond to a range of potential dangers.

“Our industry is working constantly to adapt to new and evolving threats to the grid, whether that’s by protecting against malicious threats like cyber and physical attacks or addressing the challenges of extreme weather caused by climate change,” Scott Aaronson, the a*sociation’s senior vice president for security and preparedness, said by email.

The report also mentioned four suspected extremists who were accused in October 2020 of a plot to damage transformers in Idaho and nearby states and the arrest in May 2020 of three alleged militia extremists, tied to the antigovernment Boogaloo movement, who were charged in a conspiracy to attack an electrical substation in Las Vegas.

“The electrical companies and state and local law enforcement need to be aware of this and need to take steps,” said the federal law enforcement official.

I hate to sound like a broken record.

But I gotta remind everyone that the water treatment facilities were hacked and breached.

If you forgot or didn’t know. They changed the chemical to water ratio. No official ever came out publicly and admitted on how much damage was really done.

So if your water tastes a lil funny. That’s why.

I know they do stories.

But itís only 1 story per situation. Like they say it once and itís done. The officials donít even come out and tell the public what went down.

Then years from now, everyone will be wondering why people are sick.

Right but you see some sh*t like this on the news and you (meaning the people) are not going to ask questions of your officials?

Come on man you know they don't want you to ask questions because they don't want to have to give you the answers which is... there is fu*king nothing they can do to stop these hacker's fu*kery. EVERY fu*kING THING is online and vulnerable to attack.

When they tell you to look out for something. They're just giving you a heads up for what they about to do.

They always have to show you or tell you before they do something.

What's new about this? The article said these concerns go back to a report from 2014. 8 years ago. I'm sure you can find government reports on threats to the power grid going back 50-60 years ago too. Every country has this as a national security concern.

The Federal Government first declared war against the KKK over 100 years ago. You still see them do reports about the rise of White supremacist groups every year.

Don't get it twisted. The Feds don't go against these groups because of their racist tendencies. It is just white supremacist groups also happen to have an anti-government angle to them too. See Ruby Ridge, Oklahoma City bombing, etc.

These. "Extemist" that this article is portraying are more than likely ex mil who have a basic understanding of how to destabilize a area....so yes disabling the power, roads, infrastructure isnt so far fetched.

Article is just stoking the fears of people who dont understand we literally do this sh*t for a living in other countries.
