National Presidential Alert?

10 posts in this topic

I just got this over the cell phone, it was a test, it was like an Amber Alert. What is it?, and did anybody else get it?

It was talked about frequently on my TV news last evening. Otherwise I would not know. I don't have a smart phone but it did come over my cable television system.

What is it though? Is it going to give us a heads up when Twump hits the launch button before SS Twump hits the IRS Iceberg?

It's a national-level emergency alert system, as opposed to the individually state-run EAS around the country.

This was originally scheduled a few months ago, but delayed for some reason.  I saw or heard it mentioned several times on local news, national news, in magazines, etc.

It really is not a "presidential" alert so much as the highest level federal government alert.  Supposed to be used only in times of a national emergency.  I would suppose another Sept. 11 or similar.

While other alerts, warnings, etc. can be blocked from phones, this one cannot.  Ironically I do not believe it came through on my land line.

I hope Donny pulls one of these when he gets word that Kavanaugh is confirmed.

It is absolutely NOT for that.  The alert will be with us long after Trump is gone.
