The Trump administration will send a message to all U.S. cellphones on Thursday to test a previously unused alert system

The messages will bear the headline “Presidential Alert”, the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) said in a statement this week. Phones will make a loud tone and have a special vibration, said FEMA, which will send the alert.

The test message, scheduled for 2:18 p.m. EDT on Thursday, will read: “THIS IS A TEST of the National Wireless Emergency Alert System. No action is needed.”

The test has been scheduled to ensure that the alert system would work in the event of a national emergency. U.S. cellphone users will not be able to opt out.

Former President Barack Obama signed a law in 2016 requiring FEMA to create a system allowing the president to send cellphone alerts regarding public safety emergencies.

Since the wireless emergency alert system began in 2012, it has issued over 36,000 alerts for situations such as missing children, extreme weather and natural disasters, but never a presidential directive. Cell phone users can opt out of natural disaster or missing children alerts.

FEMA said in a statement the alerts can only be used for national emergencies. The president has sole responsibility for determining when the national-level alerts are used.

In the event of widespread severe weather or another significant event on Sept. 20, the test will be pushed back to Oct. 3, FEMA said.

The administration announced in July that it would schedule the test alert for September. The White House did not immediately respond to a request for comment on its role in planning the test alert.

The administration will send a test alert via radio and television broadcasters two minutes after the cell phone alert. It will interrupt programming for about one minute, FEMA said.

Cell towers will broadcast the WEA test for approximately 30 minutes beginning at 2:18 p.m.

The U.S. Federal Communications Commission has approved new rules to ensure starting in 2019 that alerts are more precisely targeted, with links to photos or other important information.

There have been issues with prior state alerts.

In January, Hawaii issued a false alert of a missile attack that went uncorrected for 38 minutes after being transmitted to mobile phones and broadcast stations, causing widespread panic across the Pacific islands state.

In April, the FCC blamed that false alarm on human error and inadequate safeguards.


hmm..every mobile phone..thats ALL of them..

“The test message, scheduled for 2:18 p.m. EDT on Thursday, will read: “THIS IS A TEST of the National Wireless Emergency Alert System. No action is needed.”

“U.S. cellphone users will not be able to opt out.”

  1. Reblogged this on OUR GREATER DESTINY and commented:
    A preview of coming attractions?

  2. ““U.S. cellphone users will not be able to opt out.”

    a great ((complete)) data base run by the Deep State out there…

  3. ‘Presidential Alert’: Trump text slides to October 3

    • A majority of cell phone users will receive an alert on Wednesday, October 3, with the header “Presidential Alert” and the message, “THIS IS A TEST of the National Wireless Emergency Alert System. No action is needed.” The alert was initially scheduled to occur Thursday, September 20, but FEMA spokesman Mark Peterson tells CNN the test has been postponed, and October 3 was the alternate date for the test.

  4. we hear rumors that will said something else maybe from DECLAS

  6. What’s odd, IF true…a poster on GLP said

    FEMA will test mobile ‘Presidential Alert’ on September 20th
    You can’t opt out, either.

    Don’t be surprised if your phone (and everybody else’s) goes into a panic in the near future — that’s on purpose. FEMA and the FCC are conducting a national test of both the Emergency Alert System and Wireless Emergency Alerts on September 20th starting at 2:18PM Eastern. If you’re included in the test, your device will receive a tone and a “Presidential Alert” warning that makes clear this is just a dry run. You can’t opt out, and if circumstances make it inappropriate to send an alert, the test will be postponed to October 3rd.

    It was originally scheduled for today (when the vote for kavanaugh was suppose to happen) vote was postponed to Oct 3rd and suddenly the alert is also postponed to Oct 3rd..

    • No coincidence, if oct 3 is the day for both now then it’s significant.

      • I think so too seek. Plus it comes 2 days ahead of the start of the Oct. Pilgrimage

        • there is a fucking legatus pilgrimage as well?

          • Yes sir Oct. 5 – 12th

            October 5–12, 2018
            Join our annual pilgrimage to Rome with Legatus Chaplain, Msgr. Joseph Schaedel and former Swiss Guard Mario Enzler. Attend a Papal Audience with Pope Francis and learn about the history of Christianity in the Eternal City with famed art historian Dr. Liz Lev. Last year the group had the opportunity to meet Pope Francis, and we’ll be praying to do the same again this year!

            • meeting with franky as well..

            • Trump is Jesuit trained, as we discussed recently intriguedbyr.

              • “jesuit trained”

                :), I always remember this when I hear/read jesuit trained:


              • Exactly, he is Fordham and Wharton, Jesuit trained indeed.
                I’m not sure who Q is. He tickles my ears only because like most, I want a better world with no corruption and certainly no endangerment to children – sexual abuse, ritualistic evils etc.
                I’m also leary because I don’t trust any of them. I’ve always said, if you made it to D.C. it’s because you are able to be blackmailed, or you are psychopath, a willing participant in the ‘swamp’, or you got caught doing something and you’re paying penance to the roman empire!

                I ‘hope’ Q is for real. I hope he and others are NOT part of the Military Industrial Complex and are really trying to save the Republic, for what it’s worth. I guess we’ll have to wait and wait and wait and see 🙂

                I too saw the Rosenstein reason as well. I don’t buy it because the past really does prove the future and there’s always a false flag event before these international bankers and their shadowy figures create another big heist of other people’s money!

    • Q is supposedly in the Trump office. Q posted the alert was changed due to Rosenstein’s staling effort on Kavanaugh, so they already had a back-up date of Oct. 3rd, suggesting Kavanaugh will be in by then by the latest.

      I have begun to keep tabs on Q, because I think it is important to keep up on current events.

  7. we you guys think on Ltakia plane ? look post up

  8. Crazy yearbook. Bunny eared high schoolers, sexual perversions on school desks, keg party photos, older high school young women preyed on younger aged teenage males. They wrote about and pictured this stuff in yearbooks?!

  9. The following news fits in with Q-stuff, specially FISA:
