Cell phones will be nation wide tested by the government for emergency takeover


Cell phones will be tested for emergency takeover by the government as needed.This latest effort by the government in the innocuous notice released by the FCC yesterday. Of course it’s first for those who opt in for alerts. But we were warned what could happen back in 2011 when the first takeover of the air waves occurred.  For the first time in 2011 the government integrated control over local and state emergency broadcasting.  First they came for the radio,TV, cable and satellite. Then they come for our phones.  One has to ask why the military was involved. From the earlier post:

he (Colonel Dietz) also asks whether it would make more sense to focus on mass messages to cell phones, given how people rely on them for communications. “Perhaps mobile phone ‘takeover’ technology would be in the SOCOM procurement pipeline down the road,” he writes.

Earlier June 2021 release:

WASHINGTON – FEMA, in coordination with the Federal Communications Commission, will conduct a nationwide test of the Emergency Alert System (EAS) and Wireless Emergency Alerts (WEA) this summer.

The national test will consist of two portions, testing WEA and EAS capabilities. Both tests will begin at 2:20 p.m. ET on Wednesday, Aug. 11 2021.

The Wireless Emergency Alert portion of the test will be directed only to consumer cell phones where the subscriber has opted-in to receive test messages. This will be the second nationwide WEA test, but the first nationwide WEA test on a consumer opt-in basis. The test message will display in either English or in Spanish, depending on the language settings of the wireless handset.

The Emergency Alert System portion of the test will be sent to radios and televisions. This will be the sixth nationwide EAS test.

U.S. military plans method of taking over airwaves

The Department of Homeland Security and the Federal Communications Commission held the first nationwide test of the Emergency Alert System. The test occurred at 2 p.m. ET and was carried on all broadcast television, radio stations and cable and satellite television systems in the U.S. and U.S. territories. Wednesday, November 9, 2011.

Only the President has the authority to activate EAS at the national level, and he has delegated that authority to the Director of FEMA.  The test was conducted jointly by the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) through  FEMA, the Federal Communications Commission (FCC), and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s (NOAA) National Weather Service (NWS).

In essence, the authority to seize control of all television and civilian communication has been asserted by the executive branch and handed to a government agency.

Many of us have been predicting that this is one of the moves the Government would prepare to do in order that they would be successful under the “right” circumstances. While this “test” will be for 3 minutes, there is nothing about the Executive Order process that limits the amount of time in the future.

On that day, federal authorities were to shut off all television and radio communications simultaneously at 2:00PM EST to complete the first ever test of the national Emergency Alert. Right in the heart of the day. This is no tin foil hat theory anymore.

From Forbes:

If you want to take over a nation, then first take over its airwaves. Broadcast your messages and interdict the enemy’s ability to broadcast theirs. When the U.S. attacked Iraq in 1991, or NATO bombed Serbia in 1999, among the first targets destroyed were TV and radio stations. When there is a military coup in Africa, the first buildings the rebels usually grab are the radio and TV studios.

National Emergency Alert System Test (November 9, 2011)

The Department of Homeland Security and the Federal Communications Commission held the first nationwide test of the Emergency Alert System. The test occured at 2 p.m. ET and was carried on all broadcast television, radio stations and cable and satellite television systems in the U.S. and U.S. territories. Wednesday, November 9, 2011.

 Here is a question? Are we going to buy this bad boy from China?
Prior to initiating the FCT, USSOCOM wishes to identify all firms (both foreign
and domestic) which could provide a non-developmental light-weight,
multi-frequency, simultaneous over-broadcast system that has demonstrated a Technology Readiness Level of 8 or higher.

So it is illuminating that the United States Special Operations Command (USSOCOM), the organization that oversees America’s elite special forces, is quietly searching for equipment that will effectively give it control over every FM and AM radio station in an area. The short, innocuous-sounding announcement on the Federal Business Opportunities site states that SOCOM seeks vendors to provide “a radio broadcast system capable of searching for and acquiring every AM and FM radio station in a specific area and then broadcasting a message(s) in the target area on all acquired AM and FM radio station frequencies.” SOCOM wants equipment that is both lightweight and sophisticated enough to detect and broadcast over multiple frequencies simultaneously.

This is what the Pentagon now calls Military Information Support Operations, or MISO. This is a far less sinister name for what the rest of us call Psychological Operations, or Psyops.

Some might wonder whether this technology can be used inside the United States. The answer is yes. “The requirements outlined for this technology are specific to conduct operations overseas,” Cohen says. “However, in some instances and when directed, the MISO forces and equipment can be used during Civil Authority Information Support operations.  During these events, MISO equipment simply is a platform that is used to support organizations such as FEMA to disseminate information to the public regarding safety, and so on.”

Lawrence Dietz, a retired U.S. Army Reserve Colonel who participated in Psyops for 13 years and writes a Psyops blog, suggests that a mass broadcast capability would be very useful during a Katrina-like natural disaster that can transmit emergency information when civilian transmitters have been knocked out. However, he also asks whether it would make more sense to focus on mass messages to cell phones, given how people rely on them for communications. “Perhaps mobile phone ‘takeover’ technology would be in the SOCOM procurement pipeline down the road,” he writes.

And what became of Lawrence Dietz

Obama to shut down airwaves on November 9th UPDATE

The best of the swamp today.

Bonus:

President Obama signed an executive order this week (July 12, 2012) that could give him control over the web in times of emergency.

According to The Verge, critics of the order are concerned with Section 5.2, which is a lengthy part outlining how telecommunications and the Internet are controlled. It states that the Secretary of Homeland Security will “oversee the development, testing, implementation, and sustainment” of national security and emergency preparedness measures on all systems, including private “non-military communications networks.” According to The Verge, critics say this gives Obama the on/off switch to the Web.

    Not surprised. Here in our local ‘burg we’ve come up with some other ways to stay in touch with fellow Patriots. It’s been foretold, foreseen and we’ve taken steps to be ready. There are more than 70 million guns (I think that’s correct) of different types in law-abiding American hands. Rest easy. Most of us are ready. There’s not enough military to stop us all.
    Oh, and PS, my county of Pierce in the lovely State of Georgia has voted unanimously to be a 2nd Amendment sanctuary and there’s many, many more in our State. Hope they think that’s a hill worth dying on ’cause we sure do.
    Keep praying and stand firm.

    Sigh.

    I stopped watching the 24-hour propaganda channels because I don’t want to know nine-tenths of the stupid stuff that’s going on in the world. Anyway, most of the stuff we’re notified about isn’t really “news.” For example, two million people invading our southern border from Central America isn’t “new” and a 900% increase in COVID-19 among illegal aliens isn’t unexpected.

    Beyond the invasion, I’m trying to think of any other circumstances where the federal government should want to keep me in the loop. No, I don’t care if someone places a dirty bomb in Nancy Pelosi’s office. No, I don’t care if terrorists kidnap Kamala Harris. Biden’s dementia doesn’t affect me, either.

    As you can see, I’m really struggling to find any reason that I would want the federal government to notify me. I already keep my eye on the weather; I often see “Amber Alerts” and “Silver Alerts” on the interstate. So … other than the federal government warning me about my whiteness, I can’t think of a single thing. Anyway, my cell phone alerts are turned off because I’m sure that if the federal government did warn me about anything, it would be predicated on a lie.

      I am curious… Dietz’s claims to be a “Global Public Sector Evangelist.” I am thinking of a more crude description.
      Its all about feeding at the trough and if he can take America down along with making bucks fine with him… This is our military leadership today.

      You’re right, of course. Everyone is feeding at the trough. Sort of like the dozens of former teachers who form companies and bid for contracts to conduct in-service seminars. This year, they’ve made a ton of money conducting in-service training about teaching critical race theory. I’ve been required to sit through so many of those “nut job” seminars that it still makes my stomach churn thinking about it. One year, some nut-job professor from UVA told us to stop grading students because it only hurts their self-esteem. Everyone should pass, he said, because students have sat in class for the entire school year and probably learned something. Mastery? Nah.

      As for Dietz, and “reserve officers” in general, they are leaders in the same way Biden is lucid. The Abu Graib affair was entirely an “Army reserve” fiasco. The amusing thing about the Army’s “PsyOps” program is that it is predicated on western mindsets … which makes it completely worthless in every non-western culture. So whatever it was the Dietz did for thirteen years in the psyops department was probably about as effective as Major Nidal Hasan’s efficacy as a psychiatrist.

        Yes, how well I recall being on the Diversity Committee at work. How I achieved this position is anyone’s guess. As such I was privy to the “how to” in meeting the government requirements to achieve equality….. of course now its equity. Quite a different beast.

      Okay, Bunks … you started this — here’s what we know about psyops in the US Army from (burp) the US Army: (1) Psyops soldiers use the power of their influence to shape global security environments to achieve US national security goals. (2) Psyops soldiers are the nation’s primary influencers supporting combat commanders, ambassadors, allies, and OGAs. (3) Psyops soldiers operate in small, autonomous teams to develop relationships with civilian populations, front-line troops, and government/military lawyers. (4) Psyops soldiers are specialists in unconventional warfare capabilities, such as deception in media, and so forth.

      Therefore, Colonel Dietz failed in trying to convert the Taliban to Christianity because they figured out he was lying to them about the afterlife, and they learned rather quickly that just like lawyers, you can tell when a psyops soldier is lying to you because his lips are moving. Notice, if you will, how well the Iraq and Afghan wars turned out because of our nation’s psyops efforts. Now … please, don’t get me started on military lawyers.

        You are in special form this AM Mustang…I am sure when I hear via my cell phone radio and TV to duck and cover from one of these Psyops fellows I will harken back to your words of wisdom. Something to be said about the value of the Pony Express for surely it will be One if by Land and Two if by Sea…. much better alerting service. I will look toward the old North Tower.

    Now that I think of the money I could have saved by not paying for this electronic leash for the past few years, I want to give up my breakfast. For the convenience of having the ability to call for help when I have a wreck (I have had one in the past 40 years), I have paid with money and a lack of privacy (since Google can and does make a map of where ever I go with this silicon brick). Sure, I like reading my Bible on it and reading the NY Post, Der Spiegel, Townhall, the Daily Caller, and more other conservative outlets than I want to admit — still, is it worth it?

      Right, Mark. You could have taken the money you spent on cell phones and service and opened up a PsyOps company, contracted yourself out to the Department of Defense, and be sitting on easy street right now. Ahem. For this consultation, please send me a lot of money. Cash only, please. Also, I’m selling my cell phone; interested?
