It will not happen—To really take over you would need the support of the Army—he lacks that. If he tried to take power the tanks would roll. Even Hillary would go against him. No, I can’t see this happening and if it does—it would bring about Civil War—a new Confederacy—an end to the USA. Obama’s end would be swift and be more like that of the late Col. Quadaffi.

If you read some of the postings over at the Blaze, there must be an accute shortage of tin foil across the country.

Beck should be honest with his listeners on how EAS works. Most of the posters think Obama is going to take away radio and TV forever. I thought Beck was more honorable than that. I guess I was wrong.

Boy is that an exaggeration. I just watched the clip and in no manner did Beck say they were taking away radio or TV forever. He did say and it is in the FEMA memo that some stations may not indicate it is a test. And he expressed concern that this test/non-test may cause some confusion. And such that ...why do something like this in the middle of the work day, instead of the middle of the night. Which I am old enough to recall they did a lot of the TV EBS tests at midnight, just in case the 'test' message failed and caused panic.

It's a national Emergency Alert System test and it has been done at least once before, possible twice.

In any case I run a monthly test on three of the radio stations I work at. They aren't shut down at all. They are used to relay the message.

While I'm no fan of the EAS, there should be a system in place to relay national emergencies. My problem with the EAS is that it doesn't work as it should. When we had operators on duty at stations the test was supposed to be run by the operator and logged. Now many stations don't have anyone on duty overnight and some even during the day. Because of that EAS is trying to automate the system. That is what the test is about.

I understand the concern however many of the same people worrying about this test would probably also be upset if we didn't relay local, state or national emergency data.

IMO the people making a fuss about this - well intention-ed as they may be - are doing more damage than good.

Conelrad tests are nothing new. Same thing.

I don’t know but it wouldn’t surprise me much if the Birchers got this same paranoia when Truman originally instituted the system. If this illustrates the mindset of the The Maine Tea Party, they appear to be equally psycho.

why do something like this in the middle of the work day...

Because emergencies happen in all day parts. At my stations I usually run 6 monthly tests a year, sometimes more. Even with the automation if a real emergency happens during the morning, afternoon or evening the operator and other staff MUST know how to handle it. I can't tell you how many times we've had tests or actual emergencies and the people on duty had no clue as to what to do. In one case during flash flooding lives were lost and eventually the stations were blamed and IIRC some stations were fined or otherwise punished.

I don't recall the TV stations being shut down before, but if you say so.... Do you have the dates it was done?

Make no mistake, this is Obama's threat to the people, especially after the November 8th elections this year.
And right after an asteroid near miss, it's designed to "SPOOK The People".

Gee, I wonder if the asteroid's trail meteor showers will be green in color?
You know Obama likes green, hehehe.

I just checked the IMPACT EARTH! generator by Purdue, and it actually wouldn’t do much damage to the Earth itself according to them. Only thing is though you can’t choose for it to impact any one of a bunch of cities throughout the world, so you can’t immediately extrapolate the expanse of damage in your head.

Notice how the asteroid warps the orbit of the earth after its fly-by.

That may be the modeling program itself or the code. I doubt something that's not much larger than the Empire State Building could effect the Earth's orbit at all. Which is why I view the theory of having satellites slightly shift the orbits of objects to be preposterous. I don't see how a sat can have enough gravity to do that without using thrusters. And in their model videos the satellite never touches the object.

So wait... this “emergency test” will take place within one day of a projected asteroid coming that close to earth?

Heck, one of a PREDICTED (since May mind you) near miss is pretty damn close and can be miscalculated.

Something is off and scary about this.

Go here CONELRAD

for a brief explanation. I don't know if the actual dates are there but I believe the last one was in 1971. It also seems to me we had one in 1959. During that one I was near the University of Pittsburgh with my mother when it went down. Everyone was required to go inside and the then CONELRAD system (then EBS and now EAS) was tested.

If you google you can find the exact dates.

In any case here are a few lines from the listing.

CONELRAD (Control of Electromagnetic Radiation) was a method of emergency broadcasting to the public of the United States in the event of enemy attack during the Cold War. It was intended to serve two purposes; to prevent Soviet bombers from homing in on American cities by using radio or TV stations as beacons, and to provide essential civil defense information. U.S. President Harry S. Truman established CONELRAD in 1951.

Also

In the event of an emergency, all United States television and FM radio stations were required to stop broadcasting. Upon alert, most AM medium wave stations shut down. The stations that stayed on the air would transmit on either 640 or 1240 kHz. They would transmit for several minutes, and then go off the air and another station would take over on the same frequency in a "round robin" chain.

I know it’s supposed to be an “emergency test” and yada yada, but that is still disconcerting.

One slight correction I would make. The speech YESTERDAY in Las Vegas, I believe, will go down in history as perhaps the first OBVIOUS sign that Obama has given up on any illusion of respecting the separation of powers in our government. Bypassing Congress to directly give money to people via refinancing of their homes... Nothing short of a direct payoff, IMO.

I swear, if the GOP doesn’t say ANYTHING about his actions being tantamount to the act of a DICTATOR I will do everything I can to support Conservatives to TAKE OVER for the Republicans in office currently.

Glenn never said anything about taking media away permanently.
He says “should the government be allowed to have that much power?”
No tinfoil hat needed. This man has done everything possible to test the resolve of the citizens.
He really wants to see how far he can go before there is any fallout. He has more leeway with the ignorant people of this country than anyone could imagine.
At some point the majority of America will take notice.

Sure emergencies happen at all times of the day/night. And I've been around a long time too. Most initial tests of such nature are normally conducted ‘off hours.’

This scale of test has never been done before per DHS and FEMA. The FEMA memo even indicates their not sure if the ‘test’ message will appear on some stations.

Again, I see no logical reason for them to be conducting this rudimentary level of test at the height of the work day. This rudimentary test should have happened overnight to get the ‘bugs out.’ Once completed at that level...then roll out with a daytime test.

I can't help but think about 0bama’s New York Fly-by Photo...

So, let me get this right. Because The John Birch Society, and some Maine Tea Party folks desire a federal government that adheres to Constitutional mandates of powers limited and defined, in your mind that is the appearance of psychotic behavior?

Conelrad tests are nothing new. Same thing.

The Conelrad System was implemented by President Truman in 1951 and became the Emergency Broadcast System sometime in the early 60's.

I don't think I'll get out the tinfoil. I've seen these tests since I was a child in the Cold War. They have now expanded it for local emergencies like severe weather.
