Why Is Congress Preparing For A “Disruptive Event”?

According to a new report from CBS, over 50 Senators have received satellite phones in the case of a ‘disruptive event’. …

The event can be a natural disaster or man-made. …

My question is: what do they know?

What are they so afraid of?

Everyone reading this is no doubt aware that the U.S. government is coming into conflict with China—a rapidly rising power.

Could this move have anything to do with that?

Are elements of the U.S. government anticipating an EMP attack from China? Perhaps they are worried about something else. …

Everyone is wondering the same thing, and, ultimately, most are only left with more questions than answers:

CBS News provided these details:

In testimony before the Senate Appropriations Committee last month, Senate Sergeant at Arms Karen Gibson said satellite communication is being deployed “to ensure a redundant and secure means of communication during a disruptive event.”

Gibson said the phones are a security backstop in the case of an emergency that “takes out communications” in part of America.

Federal funding will pay for the satellite airtime needed to utilize the phone devices.


Western Journal adds:

Citing numerous people familiar with the matter, CBS News reported all 100 senators were recently offered the phones.

More than 50 took Senate Sergeant at Arms Karen Gibson up on the offer.
