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 since someone downstairs wanted a post about gardening, there you go.

Wow. I never thought that the volume of the absurd and deliberate ignorance of Charles F. Johnson could surpass 11, but it just did.
Comey played a “MAJOR” role in getting Hillary Clinton exonerated from verified corruption charges, and exposed the FBI as a political puppet. Comey did more damage to the credibility of the FBI than anyone in modern history, yet, according to Charles Johnson, Comey enabled the election of Donald J. Trump, despite the fact that he did everything in his power to prevent it.
Charles, you’re a mess.
Prior to sporting his infamous Magical Jazzy Ponytail, Charles Johnson sported a Magical Jazzy Afro in order to blend in with the Stanley Clarke / George Duke jazz fusion band. It didn’t fool anyone. Besides that, Clarke and Duke were both talented and should have been embarrassed playing this mindless noodling garbage in the first place.
Maybe that’s why they hired Charles…
No, Charles. Breivik linked directly to your website, quoted from articles that you posted and promoted, and named you multiple times. You took responsibility for your own content with the statement “I AM Little Green Footballs. It’s only me.”
Remember when Charles Johnson claimed that Robert Spencer, Pamela Geller and others were responsible for deranged madman Anders Breivik’s murder spree in Oslo within hours of the shootings, merely because they were mentioned in his “Manifesto?”
Remember when ThinkProgress posted a bar chart of Breivik’s influences based upon his online “Manifesto” and omitted Charles Johnson and Little Green Footballs? Remember when the BRC did a simple word search of Breivik’s “Manifesto” and found over 30 citations that were omitted by ThinkProgress? Remember when we posted an updated StinkProgress bar chart to include Breivik’s references to Charles Johnson and Little Green Footballs?
Remember when Glenn Greenwald found it, verified it and reposted it? Heh.
Remember when we turned the ThinkProgress bar chart into a pie chart?
Charles Johnson is a lying coward. At least Glenn Greenwald is honest.
Meanwhile, Charles Johnson is sputtering about Charles Johnson.
Charles is sure making a dent in something.
