RUSH: This is Ron in Prosper, Texas, welcome to the program. Great to have you here.
CALLER: Oh, thank you, Rush, for taking my call. I've been trying for weeks to get this out. I would like to ask for your help, your research in examining whether that Malaysian Airlines was possibly taken out by some kind of electromagnetic weapon. The reason I'm saying that is this plane didn't know up, down, left, right. We've been told for years that there are weapons -- and I think that Chinese or enemies, they could take out our electronic infrastructure by a weapon like that that just takes out your electronics.
RUSH: Well, what it is, it's EMP, electromagnetic pulse. It happens to be a naturally occurring part of a nuclear explosion, but when it happens with a nuclear explosion it doesn't matter 'cause everything's destroyed. So the EMP as a device has been isolated, and it is a weapon, and if it is deployed or employed, an enemy can totally knock out a country's electrical grid, totally knock out everything that is digital. Wi-Fi, computer, everything, lights, televisions, air-conditioning, electric, can totally eliminate. It is a really, really devastating weapon. I don't know to what extent it's been perfected. I don't know to what extent it's been used or designed for really targeted, surgically targeted use like just on one airplane. I don't know nearly enough about how it's been weaponized. I just know about the tech and what an EMP can do and how devastating it is.
CALLER: Well, 20 years ago they were testing laser weapons -- I know this for a fact out in Palmdale. And now they're on naval ships. And that particular plane was out over the ocean --
RUSH: Well, an EMP could take an airplane out of the sky because it could destroy its electronics.
CALLER: Well, depending on how much energy you throw at it. If they're just testing it, like a microwave. You could put food in a microwave and you can make it warm, hot, or boiling. So if you're testing a weapon, you shoot this thing, 'cause this plane, for them to make the idea that they're in this cockpit fighting, cockpits are small. These pilots were blind. I think they had no way to communicate. For them to say that terrorists were taking out the ACARS and taking out the locator system and they couldn't talk and they didn't know -- one minute their elevation's changing, they don't know which way they're going.
RUSH: Well, look, if an EMP took down that airplane, we're never gonna know unless somebody comes forward and admits it and proves it.
