US Government Prepares For 'Space Weather Event' As NASA Warns "Solar Minimum Is Coming"

http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2017-07-01/us-government-prepares-space-weather-event-nasa-warns-solar-minimum-coming

Space weather refers to the environmental conditions in Earth’s magnetosphere, ionosphere and thermosphere due to the Sun and the solar wind that can influence the functioning and reliability of spaceborne and ground-based systems and services or endanger property or human health.

Meanwhile, The White House in October 2016 quietly passed through an Executive Order— “Coordinating Efforts to Prepare the Nation for Space Weather Events”.

Back in April 2017, we wrote an article titled ‘Yesterday’s Broad Power Outage Likely Caused By Geomagnetic Storm‘. While everyone thought terrorism was to blame, we correctly pointed out that large power failures in major US cities was due to an intense geomagnetic storm registering 8-10 on K-Planetary Index.

Conclusion: Our fragile nation is not adequately prepared for space weather events as highlighted in the recent Exec Order.

Frankly, this should of been done years ago, but it appears that our nation will soon deal with the consequences such as April 2017 power failures in major US-cities. Couple the solar minimum period with The Fourth Turning in the west, and we’re staring at the perfect cocktail for self-destruction of an empire. Perhaps, the downfall of America is not some external threat that the mainstream media makes you believe, but in actuality, it’s an implosion from with-in. It’s happened to the greatest empires that have attempted to rule our planet, why not now?

Addendum: one reader noted the deja vu divergence once again between declining sunspot activity and surging stock prices... did not end well last time…

Because of the sudden lack of radio reception in our vehicle (AM, FM, and NOAA) yesterday and today, July 29, 2017, I wondered if something was occurring on the sun, so found this:

NIBIRI CHAMMEL -- Earth Turning Into The Crosshairs of Sunspot AR2665, published 7-29-17
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ya094s80bTw

Has anyone else been unable to receive radio reception in vehicles?  We're in MO and did notice our indoor stereo receiver, hooked to to more powerful antenna is getting reception, but not as strong a signal as usual.

The above youtube posting showed the CME being ejected from vicinity of sunspot and did warn that the next 7-10 days could be problematic, depending on AR2665, as it is approximately on sun's equator.   As sun continues to rotate, AR2665  will move into position where it may be aimed at Earth, so key question is, will there be more CME activity once AR2665 is facing Earth?
