That sound you hear is hundreds of cell phones being flushed down toilets all over America.

President Donald Trump may soon be communicating with you directly on your phone — even if you don’t follow him on Twitter.

Next Thursday, the Federal Emergency Management Agency will do its first test of a system that allows the president to send a message to most U.S. cellphones.

More than 100 mobile carriers, including all the major wireless firms, are participating in the roll out, FEMA stated in a message on its website posted Thursday.

“The EAS [Emergency Alert System] is a national public warning system that provides the President with the communications capability to address the nation during a national emergency,” FEMA said.

The test message will have a header that reads “Presidential Alert,” according to the agency.

Users whose phones are on will twice hear a tone and vibration and then see an English-only (for now) message: “THIS IS A TEST of the National Wireless Emergency Alert System. No action is needed.”

Now before you freak out you should know that this policy was voted on by Congress way back in 2015 and that Trump is NOT allowed to just send out messages attacking people or refuting facts like he does on Twitter. 

This system is designed to provide early warnings of impending disasters. 

You know like the Trump presidency for instance. 

So seriously, what do we think the chances are that Trump will end up misusing this? 

50/50? 60/40? 100%?

    I wonder if there is a counter that records how many phones he reached. If so, let’s all turn off our phones and VM for a few hours.

    Can we * 69 him and call him back?

    I have had enough with the Indian call centers calling 15 to 20 times a day for Medicare, i don’t need a wacko president sending alerts everytime he freaks out.

    Besides, how do i know it isn’t FAKE alerts,hopefully he will only contact his supporters because the rest if us don’t count!

    He could do it without it coming as a message from him, but he can’t do that. Somehow we’ve gotten along with “tests from the emergency broadcast system” for 60 years without any government official putting their name on it. I can’t imagine believing ANYTHING coming from this liar, or acting on any advice he gave. If he sent a message saying that there was a nuclear bomb on the way, I’d have to stick my head out the door to see if it was so.

    Will Puerto Rican cell phones get the alert?

    This alert will be useful for Puerto Rico, as evidenced by the 3000+ who trump let die. They could have been saved by the alert.

    Do we know if Puerto Rican cell phones are on the notification list? Anyone? Call your senator.

    George Bush is stumping for GOP candidates, but not Ted Cruz.

    Long time GOP donor Les Wexler announced he is no longer a Republican. Right after he heard Obama speak in Columbus, Ohio.

    He was already disgusted with Trump after Charlottesville.

    Wexler says he is now an Independent.

    Which is all well and good, but it’s not how you’re registered but ultimately who you vote for.

    OT O-C-E-A-N? “The Truth Has Changed”

    tHEy could map your precise behavioral psychological profile to Facebook based on what you “liked.”
    “The day comes, he publishes his results and he gets two phone calls. A threatened lawsuit and a job offer, he told a German magazine, both of them from Facebook.

    Now your personality is in the matrix. You are telling your story to it. And Google does this, tOO. “It’s a trope in marketing, it goes like this: “If we get them when they’re six months old, we have them as customers for life.” $O>
    “This is based on you. Every single piece of information filtered through your personal algorithm. Your IP address, your Facebook feed. The men behind the algorithmic curtain can determine what you see and then profoundly influence what you do. And this has developed faster than the speed of morality.”
    “There are at least nine companies in America that have and sell this data. Have you heard of these companies?

    Corelogic, Datalogix, eBureau, ID Analytics, Intelius, PeekYou, Rapleaf, Acxiom, and Recorded Future. They’ve heard of you! They know you better than you know yourself. And they’re selling your data.”
    “You’re not just 70 percent water and tissue and a bag of bones, you’re an open ocean of information.-Cambridge Analytica has amassed four to five thousand data points on every adult American.”
    “when Alexander Nix announced that he was helping Trump, he also said something that has implications far, far beyond any one election, any one political moment. He announced that in the future, our children will not understand the concept of mass marketing/mass communication. No more universal stories, you know? Every piece of data is going to be specifically targeted at you.”
    “let me tell you, the truth here is that we did this to us. This was Facebook, this was Google, this was American. And there is nothing that the “Russians bots” did that multinational oil companies haven’t been doing for more than a decade. We created a universe in which your truth is yours only. Steve Bannon, Robert Mercer, Americans.” “So what Steve Bannon and Andrew Breitbart did to me when I toured GASLAND, Cambridge Analytica, through Google and Facebook, figured out how to do to 200 million people. A smear campaign against reality itself.” “when the truth is lost in the cyberstorm, the men behind the algorithmic curtain get what they want. And right now, they’re WINning.”

    “what you didn’t read in the New York Times is that Cambridge Analytica has had a contract with the State Department since March 2017. A year. The objective: to influence elections in dozens of countries around the world.” “in March 2018, Cambridge Analytica announced to the world that they were bankrupt and closing their doors. In the same month, however, practically the exact same board of directors and investors formed a brand-new company with the same mission. EmeRdaTa.”

    I want the first official message on this service to me a news bulletin that President Trump has been arrested and is in solitary confinement and under watch for his own protection until the trial(s) can be completed.

    Looking forward to emergency security threats like “It’s a Witch Hunt!”, “No Collusion!” And of course the ever present “FAKE NEWS!”
