Employee Who Set Off ICBM Alert to a Million People Learns His Fate

9

A worker in Honolulu Hawaii accidentally pressed the wrong button and set off alerts of an incoming ICBM this weekend. It was either deliberate or the liberals in Hawaii who set up the system are amazingly incompetent.

Instead of choosing the correct button for a drill, we are being told an employee twice pressed the wrong button. We are also being told the employee didn’t know what he had done until he received the cellphone alert himself.

The worker is very sorry and has been welcomed back to work but not to the same job. Actually, the process is the problem if what they are telling us is true, and the responsibility is much more their error of the system and who devised it than the employee’s – if what they are saying is true at all.

Many think this was done deliberately by a deranged leftist who wanted to let people know what Trump was going to do to them. The left thinks he’s going to start a nuclear war and lots of luck trying to find a Republican in Hawaii.

You never know.

Rush reminded his listeners today that, even on an iPhone, if you try to wipe out the data, you get several stern warnings on your iPhone and the last one asks, “Are you sure you want to do this?”, but we are to believe that this one employee in Hawaii hits the alert button twice and the state of Hawaii gets an alert? We’re just lucky no one was injured or died because of it.

It took 38 minutest to correct the error so did they track the “missile”? They told parents to put their kids in storm drains. As Rush said today, within minutes, Rep. Tulsi Gabbard came out and said Trump had to get right on the phone to Kim Jong-un. That’s what they thought of?

Does this make any sense to people?

Listen to what Bernie-supporting Tulsi Gabbard said and think about this – she had no problem until Trump came into office.

Rush added that the left said the same thing about Ronald Reagan.

The Pope’s out carrying on also.

We believe the problem is the liberal Hawaiians terrible system.

If this is their system, it’s a sign of remarkable liberal incompetence and heads need to roll. If someone did it deliberately, the person(s) need to be charged criminally. People could have died. Some panicked Hawaiians were shoving their children down storm drains!

Listen up! This is what people should do if there is an incoming ICBM — open up the Scotch and tell your family you love them because you won’t survive it.

Celebrities are blaming Trump for this but it had nothing whatsoever to do with the White House, the President, or the Department of Defense — NOTHING!

The FCC is taking it very seriously and they are investigating.

If you missed the alert, it sent some of the million people who heard it into a panic and no one countermanded the alert for another 38 minutes.

  1. Something is very suspicious here. There were a slew of politicians who Immediately went to cameras to denounce Trump. You mean to tell me that there is the threat of Nuclear War and these people run to a microphone to denounce the Commander-in-Chief. No one has the inclination to inform people of what they should do? This doesn’t pass the smell test.

    I had heard on one program there was a suicide over this. I don’t know any more than that, and surely the officials in Hawaii would probably cover that up.

  2. The person from the local Emergency Mgmt Agency spoke regarding the situation. He takes full responsibility. His description of the details is conclusive that everyone in his department should close their doors and turn it over to “competent” personnel. If he was in charge of implementing this boondoggle why should HE keep HIS job. Is he an example of the Peter Principle.

  3. They have since reassigned the person who “pushed the button” (actually made two mouse clicks), so why isn’t the manager “reassigned”. HE was in charge.

    Also, if there are NO Civil Defense shelters what good would there be if an actual Nuclear Detonation occurred. Are there ANY Nuclear hardened structures on the island?

    Evidently they have been “discussing” what people should do for months now. MONTHS? Really? It looks to me that incompetence rules.

  4. One thing occurred to me. There are two selections, according to the manager, one for a test and one for the real thing. It was known to be an error within 5 minutes. So, WHY did the person NOT select the “test” selection and send that once he realized the error. The manager said it had to be correct “manually”. Really? Are they that Stupid. Just send the Test

  5. Somebody doesn’t want us to know the magnitude of the screwup…That’s pretty ****ing scary, because we don’t know how far up the chain this was believed. Keep in mind: there *IS* a military presence in hawaii. A pretty large one….Pacific fleet command is in pearl harbor. They have phones too. They also have the numbers for the people who matter. You can bet your sweet ass that within 5 minutes of seeing the alert (probably a LOT less than that,) they knew whatever norad did. It couldn’t possibly have taken more than 5 more minutes to get a hold of the emergency alert people and tell them to get their head out of their ass.

    Something ****ing stinks.

  6. According to one report the locals had to “double back and work with FEMA [to craft and approve the false-alarm alert], and that’s what took time,” Rapoza said.

    This is Our Government in 2018. We’re in deep trouble if Anything breaks out.

  7. HHHmmm what the heck is going on here? Japanese public broadcaster NHK issued a false alarm about a North Korean missile launch on Tuesday, but it corrected the error within minutes, messages on the NHK website showed.

    It was not immediately clear what caused the false alarm which followed a false missile alert that caused panic across Hawaii at the weekend.
