What You Need To Know

On Thursday, AlertsUSA subscribers were notified of reports of gunfire at a Publix Grocery Store in Royal Palm Beach, FL. In this incident, Timothy J. Wall, age 55, entered the supermarket and briefly stalked a 69-YO woman and her 1-YO grandchild in the produce aisle before he pulled a handgun and shot the toddler. The woman immediately jumped on Wall and his gun briefly jammed. She fell to the floor where Wall shot her, and then himself. All died at the scene.

According to Palm Beach County Sheriff Ric Bradshaw, detectives have been unable to find any connection between the shooter and his victims. Equally disturbing is the fact that Hall had been threatening to kill people, including children, on his Facebook page but no one reported him.

Quoting Sheriff Bradshaw:

“He had said, ‘I want to kill people and children.’ He’s got friends. Obviously, they saw that. His ex-wife said that he has been acting strange. He thinks he is being followed. He’s paranoid. Do you think a damn soul told us about that? No.”

AlertsUSA cautions readers that in these crazy times when we are experiencing serious political divisions and waves of social unrest, significant damage to the economy and nation from the pandemic, an out-of-control southern border, growing threats foreign terrorist and criminal organizations ( not to mention from other nations...), along with deep distrust of government institutions and media, this setting is the perfect growth medium for an expansion of threats to the safety of yourself and family. As such, it is essential that one adapt to this environment in order to mitigate personal risk. Two of the most important steps you can take is to 1.) stay well informed and 2.) increase your situational awareness.

To this end, in recent weeks the Department of Homeland Security has engaged in a renewed push of the "If You See Something, Say Something" campaign. As part of this effort, DHS has released an interesting series of short videos on paying better attention to your surroundings and challenging the viewer to be observant.

North Korea’s Capabilities for Electromagnetic Pulse (EMP) Attack

North Korea’s KMS-3 and KMS-4 satellites orbit over the U.S. daily. Their trajectory is similar to that planned for a Soviet-era secret weapon called the Fractional Orbital Bombardment System (FOBS) deployed by the USSR to make a surprise High-altitude EMP (HEMP) attack on the United States. Trajectories of North Korea’s KMS-3 and KMS-4 satellites are near optimal for a HEMP attack on the U.S., if they are nuclear-armed. HEMP attack does not require much accuracy or a reentry vehicle capable of penetrating the atmosphere and is well within North Korea’s technological capabilities.

Multiple credible foreign sources including from South Korea, China, and Russia—including two of Russia’s foremost EMP weapons experts—allege the design for Russia’s Super-EMP nuclear weapon leaked or was transferred to North Korea and that North Korea has developed Super-EMP weapons.


Numbers Show Border Disaster Unabated in May

On June 9, U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) issued its latest statistics, on aliens encountered at the Southwest border in May. They show that the border disaster is proceeding unabated and, while some numbers were slightly better this month, others were much worse. Migrant families are crowding the ports, and more than 40,000 migrants came from a lot farther than Central America.


Is the Biden Admin Helping Iran Achieve Its Nuclear Dream?

The most likely outcome of US President Joe Biden's ill-considered attempt to revive the nuclear deal with Iran is that it will lead to a dramatic reduction in the time frame Tehran requires to build an atomic warhead.
