Re: Emergency Alert - forced tuned my tv station!!! Just now
If you imbeciles think this government (particularly of late) would want to warn us, via some emergency broadcasting system, about something concerning our own safety or good (like a killshot CME, a hostile alien-space invasion or an enormous tidal wave that could wipe out a coastline) you're as delusional as they are evil.

They want to kill and control us. Not protect and save us.


And whatever or whoever was behind this today should awaken you to the VERY likelihood that they are spying on you through a digital device that so many can't seem to live without and pay dearly for each monthly. Don't you see the idiocy that's in place?



In summation: Anyone still watching television in the year 2014 and/or believes ANY of the world leaders are in place for our own safety and good (from the Pope to the poop in the oval office) deserves everything that's coming down the pike.

I am so glad I'm 55 years old because I literally feel sorry for those of you who will never know no other way to live except in fear and in total compliance.

The 70's rocked. I am literally so sorry the majority of you will miss what it's like to truly enjoy life on this planet!!

What I do not like about this whole thing is how quickly the gov can control our information sources. Click and done::

When shit really hits the fan, we will be force tuned to propaganda network, the internet will not function, cell phone service will be halted, and landlines cut off.

We'll all be left to wonder what the hell is really going on, aside from what they want us to hear. Good way to control the sheeple.
 Quoting: GrizzlyBear


Definitely.

Anyone who still thinks that TPTB care anything about the masses beyond having people do their bidding is living in la-la land. They DO have the control, and there is nothing that can be done to change that.

I think it is best to live our lives the best we CAN in our own little worlds (and for me, that means NOT having television, Facebook, smartphone, etc.). I believe that trying to change the U.S. or the world in general for the better is now hopeless, if it is contrary to the wants of the top .00001%.

For me, mostly retreating from the world of 2014 is much better than dealing with it.

This is a test of the emergency broadcast system. In the event of a real emergency, the broadcast will be followed by:

That’s the thing about progress; all the word means is “continued movement in the same direction.” If the direction was a bad idea to start with, or if it’s passed the point at which it still made sense, continuing to trudge blindly onward into the gathering dark may not be the best idea in the world. Break out of that mental straitjacket, and the range of possible futures broadens out immeasurably.

Re: Emergency Alert - forced tuned my tv station!!! Just now
I am in central MN and saw nothing.

That being said, we always have the siren test at 1 pm on the first Wednesday of every month. Since we've lived here, the siren has gone off (sounds like when the siren tapers off and kind of hangs in the air and doesn't restart... Lasts about 3-5 seconds) at 1 pm when it is NOT the first Wednesday of the month. It happened yesterday. Thus also has happened a few times when we lived in southern MN but it has happened several tines here.

What the hell is going on? Thus needs to be addressed by a news conference. Something is just not right folks. Think about all the protocol they must have to go through in the presence of other people in order to have that alert (not a test mind you) have happen. Why did some in certain areas see this and others did not?

Remember how Air Force one buzzed the people in NYC and scared the shit out of them? And there was no apology issued and no statement. This is how we will know Martial law is on our doorstep. It will look like that.

Do you live near Red Wing or Montecello? The sirens in those areas are controlled by Xcel energy, and are tied into the nuke plants.

As if this is not obvious preparation for an expected ebola outbreak. Because in order to be a threat from terrorists, terrorist would need the support of governments to even pose a national security risk for any country.

What do they have that could hurt a nation?

It's very disturbing that instead of taking even the first action toward a containment effort in West Africa by stopping flights, that they are planning for the spread of ebola here in the U.S.

Obama's new private population control ebola czar is an obvious indication of things to come.

We must demand actions from these republicans to impeach Obama immediately or we must hold them all responsible and immediately accountable for their complicit lack of action and treason.

Recent reports on rogue cell phone towers being used across the country to intercept mobile cell phone data is drawing a response from federal agents who claim the towers are not being used by law enforcement groups.

The mesh network system, funded with a $2.6 million “Port of Seattle” grant from the Department of Homeland Security, allows several groups within Seattle to communicate outside of normal cellular channels via “mesh network nodes” attached to utility poles. Beyond the simple communication aspect, the system has also been shown to be capable of collecting vast amounts of information from the city’s many surveillance systems.

Re: Emergency Alert - forced tuned my tv station!!! Just now
What bothers me about this is how the EAS is built.

Each state has PEP (Primary Entry Points) via hardlines (which are probably telephone lines but could be some other form of transmission including Ethernet or FIDDI/Optical) to the White House.

The PEP's are the only way into the system. The PEP's are connected to designated stations in each state which then hijack the signals of other stations.

The interesting thing is that this happened ONLY on AT&T's network. If the PEP had been hacked, this would have been Nationwide on every carrier and even over the air.

Since it did not, I suspect that AT&T's hardware which connects to the PEP's has been hacked or malfunctioned during some sort of internal test (which they are required to do by FedGov).

Probably not a conspiracy or anything else - more then likely it was just a stupid technician OR was configured incorrectly (most likely by exposing their EAS equipment to a Internet connected network) and hacked.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 134221


In itself its a very hard thing to eff up on. The relay system which controls the trigger is initiated by a dual relay system which acts on separate carriers. I don't know the details exactly of how that remote system sends their signals (I'm assuming 2 separate phone or cable internet and satellite Ethernet system signals for security in the event one method of signal transport should get compromised). Anyways, two separate signals to two separate relays acting on a redundant station manager system which incorporates both the 'A' system and the 'B' system. Both 'A' and 'B' have to be triggered for it to switch over. This is standard operating procedure for any automation system operating in a North American utility.
Therefore, this couldn't have been an error. If one relay was wired incorrectly or malfunctioned, the system would have ceased to operate, not initial an entire television override. Not just one person, but multiple people pushed the button somewhere and directed the exact IP to AT&T.
