WH shutting down TV and radio for 3.5 minutes on 11/9

Posted on 10/25/2011 1:28:18 PM PDT by klb99

Does anyone know anything about the announcement that the White House (our Dear Leader) will shut down TV and radio for 3.5 minutes on the 9th? The emergency broadcasts last only 60 seconds...why does Obama want three and a half minutes? That's an eternity in broadcasting. Did he get possession of "the button" to turn off all communication?

If they’d do it during an entire Obama speech, I’d thank them.

We live in interesting times. Something is coming. The elites of both parties know it. Every strange thing they do now is preparation and/or practice.

People were talking about it yesterday here; the consensus was that this is the best obozo and his crew can do to screw with Rush and the conservative movement - show ‘em who’s boss ... it could easily have been scheduled for 2AM but then no one would notice, and this way ...

I’m pretty sure they’re doing it during the Rush Limbaugh show. Purely coincidental though, I’m sure.

I think a normal one is two minutes, so they need to test to make sure that the radio and TV stations' automatic equipment see this as a national emergency message separate from a normal emergency broadcast, thus they have to go longer. If the announcement is cut off at two minutes, then the stations know they have something set up wrong.

Memo from the White House:

We control all communication. Surrender now, America. Resistance is futile.

Just kidding. This is only a test. Really. (signed) Barack Hussein Obama.

I understand the next GOP debate is on 11-9 on CNBC taking place in Michigan. Maybe he wants to shut them off.

But a week or so ago I saw an announcement about this on TV. It is going to be Nation Wide.

My guess is Obama is cuing up to declare Marshall Law when the time comes and they want to test that the WHOLE nation will hear it.

It’s martial law, and it is not going to happen. Libs were saying the same thing about President Bush for 6 or 7 years too.

"It’s martial law....."

LOL! I used to be good at the use of words, not so much anymore. I was only joshing about martial law because that is what you hear some Freepers saying. But who knows? Maybe some day it will happen.

Sorry then. It’s hard to convey the tone of some comments in written form. I thought you were serious, as there is a group of Freepers who think every bit of news ushers in martial law or the Apocalypse. :)

I suggest everyone make sure any walkie-talkies that you have are charged and working.

I’m sending one with my hubby to work. They might come in handy.

"We control the horizontal";

"We control the vertical";

"This is a public service announcement"

Effective immediately, I am issuing an Executive Order due to the Republican-caused Economic problems, and the Government needs more revenue.

Therefore, one day per week of your earnings will be withheld, and forwarded to the Government to help fund our debts. This will be in addition to the regular taxes you have withheld from your paycheck.

We thank you for your Service in this Public Need Program.

Good night...and, Allahu Akbar "

“My guess is Obama is cuing up to declare Marshall Law when the time comes and they want to test that the WHOLE nation will hear it.”

First, it’s MARTIAL law, not marshal law. James Arness was marshal law as Marshal Matt Dillon in “Gunsmoke.”

Buckwheat, our fraud in the Whitehouse, couldn’t marshal up squat.

But I’ve been impolite. Why don’t you list all the divisions that obuma can line up to keep his worthless azz in power. And don’t include the 1st and 2nd Marine divisions; they’re accounted for.

Your turn...

As a wise FReeper said on another thread, doing this at 4 AM is a test, doing it at 2 PM is a demonstration.

I addressed all that here at post #18.

Have a good evening.
