SHTFplan: Cybersecurity Expert John McAfee Issues Warning About Those Cell Phone “Presidential Alerts”

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.


Prepare yourself. Buy physical silver and storable food.

With the push of a button and at the direction of President Donald Trump, a “Presidential Alert” was sent to all cellphones across America at 2:18 p.m. ET yesterday.

The message was the first test of what many are calling the “Presidential Alert” system, a new way to notify Americans across the country of national emergencies.

Here’s what it looked like, in case you were one of the few who didn’t get the alert, or you don’t have a cell phone:

A 2015 law called the Integrated Public Alert and Warning System Modernization Act limits the scope of what can be considered a valid emergency alert:

Except to the extent necessary for testing the public alert and warning system, the public alert and warning system shall not be used to transmit a message that does not relate to a natural disaster, act of terrorism, or other man-made disaster or threat to public safety.

The idea for this system was sponsored by Senator Ron Johnson (R-Wisconsin) and signed into law by then-President Barack Obama.

Despite the wording of the message, this is not a presidential alert system, explains Law & Crime:

It is a Wireless Emergency Alert system set up by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) to allow government officials to swiftly send information to the American public in a time of crisis, specifically terror attacks, natural disasters, or other public safety threats.

The alert everyone got this week was not sent by Trump, despite the misleading title. It was sent by FEMA as a test of the system. In the future, the president will have the ability to send messages, as will other officials from federal, state, tribal, and local governments.

On its surface, the system appears to be a harmless way to reach US citizens in the event of an emergency.

It’s no secret that we are all being watched by the government in various ways – there seems to be no way to fully escape Big Brother’s prying eyes these days.

People are so used to being spied on now that many are shrugging off the possibility that the system is more invasive than it appears.

Cybersecurity expert John McAfee is not one of them.

In a Tweet, he explained that the alert system is just one more way the government is invading our privacy:

People responded with questions…

Speaking of McAfee, he recently announced he will be running for president in 2020 as a Libertarian. In a Tweet posted yesterday, he introduced his campaign manager:

      Yes, this makes no sense. It should be for local emergencies only – at State level. And if it was signed by the reprehensible and illegal Kenyan Nerogro sodomite it is NOT legal or law in any way. :twisted:

      At least its not like in that HollyWeird Movie the Kingsmen when all the elites went down to their luxury bunkers to Party and then a bad American dude sent a signal to everybody and they all went nuts and started killing each other

      although I wouldn’t put that past some people and they probably have that kind of technology by now :roll:

      But lets hope they don’t eh
