The Federal Emergency Management Agency is testing a new “presidential alert” system nationwide for the first time next week that will make it possible for Donald Trump to directly message nearly everyone in the nation who has a cell phone.



Officials insisted that the system cannot be used for political purposes.



No one with a cell phone can opt out of presidential alerts



n the test next week, everyone will receive a message that will look like a text and will be headed “Presidential Alert,” FEMA said.


bummer we cant opt out.


The 2015 law authorizing the WEA system allows warnings to be sent only in times of a “natural disaster, act of terrorism, or other man-made disaster or threat to public safety,” NBC News noted.


so calm down people. im not bashing trump. not saying anything negative about it. not clowning so no need to defend.

just posting it cause it is current new and it is going down next week.

still think it is a bummer we cant opt out. dont care who is president. i dont like any alerts on my phone except from my people.

i dont like getting amber alerts at 1am

of course this FEMA alert is not a bad thing. it is good for people to be informed.

i just would rather not have the alert.

why do you think it was 3 years before they tested this though?

said it was passed in 2015

Hopefully they rarely if ever have to use it. Although it would be quite entertaining if Trump would flame the liberals a cpl times before it gets put away for in case of emergencies.

Oh noes. The coast to coast triggering events are going to be the stuff of science fiction! Even worse than the theories about what would happen if EVERYone flushed all of their toilets at the exact same moment.

compatability , integration , reliability , testing

if you are going to hae a national system that sends a disaster alert " from the office of the president "

to everyone with a cellular device - it has to send the message legiably to ANY devvice - and ALL carriers

3 years from authorisation to implimentation - is reasonable

ETA - to simplyfy the abovve

it is useless if the system wont display the message on a samsung handset , or ignores all bell customers in texas

Ummmmm this has been going on since 2012. If you would have read the link that the Huffingpaint post got you so worked up over because of TRUMP, you would have seen how this is a non story and nothing new.


Wireless Emergency Alerts (WEA)



The Wireless Emergency Alerts system is an essential part of America's emergency preparedness. Since its launch in 2012, the WEA system been used more than 33,000 times to warn the public about dangerous weather, missing children, and other critical situations – all through alerts on cell phones.

OMG I swear if this happens I will be super pissed. My phone is reserved for making money and Netflix/OU updates. Nothing else damnit!

Thanks for letting me know, I recently disabled alerts on my phone due to TWO silver alerts at 2 - 3 a.m. in one week. I'm sorry I don't know where the missing elderly man is when I'm asleep in bed 100 miles away...

I noticed then that the Presidential alerts couldn't be disabled, not a big deal so long as they are reserved for nuclear attacks or some such thing.

With the way that liberal democrats are acting now, we just might need Trump to make special "alerts" on everyone's phones, to warn the good folks the subversive and violence they are planning. The MSM would be against that, which is why Trump could end up doing this for us good folks who aren't SJW's.


Thanks for this brilliant idea that will help conservative decent citizens stay out of harms way! We will forward this to the White House for implementation.

Hey hey hey. Don't say something so insulting. There are some very intellectual 16 year olds trolling on 4chan. They don't deserve to be compared to covfefe levels of communication.

My hairs are standing up.

Why now? Why now after 3 years in the works?

Looks like we'll know about the next false flag attack straight from the snake's mouth. And what if it's sooner than later?

You guys are insane, it is not a direct message from trump, it is just called presidential alerts due to it being national emergency level events. They are already a thing and can be turned off.
