Yep, it’s true. On 20 September, dimheads are gonq to go all ‘splody about an innocuous life and safety warning enacted by FEMA in coordinations with the FCC:
The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), in coordination with the Federal Communications Commission (FCC), will conduct a nationwide test of the Emergency Alert System (EAS) and Wireless Emergency Alerts (WEA) on September 20, 2018. The WEA portion of the test commences at 2:18 p.m. EDT, and the EAS portion follows at 2:20 p.m. EDT. The test will assess the operational readiness of the infrastructure for distribution of a national message and determine whether improvements are needed.
The WEA test message will be sent to cell phones that are connected to wireless providers participating in WEA. This is the fourth EAS nationwide test and the first national WEA test. Previous EAS national tests were conducted in November 2011, September 2016, and September 2017 in collaboration with the FCC, broadcasters, and emergency management officials in recognition of FEMA’s National Preparedness Month.
The EAS is a national public warning system that provides the President with the communications capability to address the nation during a national emergency. The test is made available to EAS participants (i.e., radio and television broadcasters, cable systems, satellite radio and television providers, and wireline video providers) and is scheduled to last approximately one minute. The test message will be similar to regular monthly EAS test messages with which the public is familiar. The EAS message will include a reference to the WEA test:
“THIS IS A TEST of the National Emergency Alert System. This system was developed by broadcast and cable operators in voluntary cooperation with the Federal Emergency Management Agency, the Federal Communications Commission, and local authorities to keep you informed in the event of an emergency. If this had been an actual emergency an official message would have followed the tone alert you heard at the start of this message. A similar wireless emergency alert test message has been sent to all cell phones nationwide. Some cell phones will receive the message; others will not. No action is required.”
Now guess who spazzed out over the text in bold above? You got it.
English speak Josh that almost.
Charles Johnson has never been employed in an office of 50 people.
Yeah. Charles Johnson doesn’t want to be bothered with local child abduction alerts, fire and police warnings, or public safety National Security PSAs because TRUMP.
Charles, you’re a mess.
Charles Johnson (Who Is Not A Racist) Disparages Mexican Cuisine and Presents a Tutorial on AsswipingPosted: September 9, 2018
Yeah, right, Charles. How many times did you use the term “Oil Tick” to disparage all people of mideastern descent? Or are you crowing again about “Mr. Mossberg?”
The following comments were flushed down the LGF Memory Hole long ago, but here they are verbatim:
No ethnic racism there. None at all, and it appears that an un-named proctologist had to teach Charles Johnson the proper way to wipe his ass.

Great song, Charles, but they ain’t be no such thang as “polk salad,” and I doubt that you’ve ever met anyone from Louisiana, let alone been there. Y’all wouldn’t know a pokeweed from Barrett Brown.
Poke Sallet is a cooked dish made from pokeweed (poke) that grows wild in the south. Pokeweed is poisonous/toxic except for young un-mature sprouts, grows over 6 feet tall, with big leaves, purple stems and white popcorn-shaped berries. I remember it being called “Hillbilly Acid.” I never ate it.
Now quit pretending to be hip with the soul food crowd and go away.
Charles F. Johnson was served with divorce papers years ago, and those papers likely included a “Non-Disclosure Agreement” It’s a binding contract, where both parties agree to shut up about whatever they agree to shut up about for whatever reasons, even if it has to do with pissing in plastic soda bottles that once contained Mountain Dew. It’s nobody’s business except for the two parties involved, and it’s perfectly legal.
It’s also perfectly legal for anyone to settle lawsuits and disputed debts, whether or not that person is thinking of / or running for office, as long as the money is transferred from private accounts and not from campaign financing. This is common law, but Charles Johnson, self-anointed federal judge, claims it’s illegal. It’s not.
Charles, you signed a Non-Disclosure Agreement with Atari, yeah? What would have happened had you violated that binding agreement by releasing platform code? Probably nothing since Atari went blooey once you showed up. Awesome work, Charles.
