Are EMPs the cause of the recent rash of power surges and airplane emergencies and more?
On Wednesday, July 8, the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) experienced “technical difficulties,” as did the Wall Street Journal and United Airlines. In an amazing coincidence, Washington, DC and Seattle, Washington, experienced power outages around the same time. Additionally, aircraft emergencies are on the up-tick daily, as cockpits fill with smoke, engines quit or burst into flame mid-flight, and planes crash onto beaches and highways and into houses.
GPS would also seem to be having problems, frequently steering trusting users into unfamiliar territory, both figuratively and literally. As recently reported by an Uber driver attempting to deliver a passenger to a nearby destination, something went seriously wrong with GPS around 7 p.m. on Saturday, which gave him nonsense directions and sent him in entirely unrelated areas. Also around the same time, people in the same area reported experiencing problems with the Internet.
Coincidence or something more? Are EMPs the cause of these power surges, outages and technical glitches now happening worldwide? And, if EMPs are the cause, what is causing the sudden influx of EMPs?
The number of airplane incidents in June and on into July is staggering, many same-day and same-type events, like smoke, fire, or a burning smell in the cockpit, emergency landings, and engines that stop mid-flight.
On June 2, 2015, an Air France flight from Paris to Tokyo was forced to make an emergency landing in eastern Russia following engine problems.

In an interesting side note, according to Civil Service Magazine, German-owned Patriot missiles stationed in Turkey on the Syrian border behaved in an “unusual manner” during this same period (July 7). Could EMPs have been involved?
