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.
…and he doesn’t recognize the clowns in what he calls the “Kavanaugh Confirmation Circus” either.
“But in the 1930s, during the Great Depression, the Statists successfully launched a counterrevolution that radically and fundamentally altered the nature of American society. President Franklin Roosevelt and an overwhelmingly Democratic Congress, through an array of federal projects, entitlements, taxes, and regulations known as the New Deal, breached the Constitution’s firewalls. At first the Supreme Court fought back, striking down New Deal programs as exceeding the limits of federal constitutional authority, violating state sovereignty, and trampling on private property rights. But rather than seek an expansion of federal power through the amendment process, which would likely have blunted Roosevelt’s ambitions, Roosevelt threatened the very makeup of the Court by proposing to pack it with sympathetic justices who would go along with his counterrevolution. Although Roosevelt’s plan failed, the justices had been effectively intimidated. And new justices, who shared Roosevelt’s statism, began replacing older justices on the Court. It was not long before the Court became little more than a rubber stamp for Roosevelt’s policies.” —Mark Levin, Liberty and Tyrrany, 2009
Charles, how ’bout we set up a GoFundMe account of, say, $5,000 for you to call in and debate US Constitution lawyer Mark Levin, payable if you last for more than 60 seconds? His radio show on AM870 starts at 3PM PST – you should be awake by then. 1-877-381-3811 is the number. Let us know if you’re game, or if you’re gonna puss-out on easy money.
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.
#BOMY. Black Olives Matter, Y’all.
That comment was recreated verbatim via the BRC LGF Archives and The Nil Stooge Secret Little Green Footballs Comment Resurrection Tool. It’s LGF comment 12528 on post 00955419.
Once it was discovered that Charles Johnson had been deleting posts and modifying others, The Late Nil Stooge did some amazing work as a senior member of the BRC. There were some behind-the-scenes discussions on whether or not the BRC should use Nil Stooge’s templates to fabricate LGF comments (and even entire thread). The consensus was no, as it would undermine the credibility of the BRC, and it was unethical to do so, unless it was for recreation of comments and threads that had been memory-holed.
Times have changed, so here’s the question.
Charles destroyed his own credibility years ago, but fabricating comments and posts, even if they’re done as satire, may be dangerous because it could affect his income. Our Boy has some funny friends willing to pony up for lawfare.
And since someone downstairs wanted a post about gardening, there you go.
