JOHN MCAFEE'S WARNING ABOUT THAT PRESIDENTIAL ALERT | WHAT REALLY HAPPENED

JOHN MCAFEE'S WARNING ABOUT THAT PRESIDENTIAL ALERT

The activists filed the suit last week in U.S. District Court in Manhattan, arguing that the system violates their free speech rights and constitutes an unconstitutional seizure of their electronic devices…

…Wireless phone users have the ability to opt out of most alerts sent under the Integrated Public Alert and Warning System, run by the Federal Emergency Management Agency. While some users can choose not to receive regional messages and so-called Amber Alerts regarding missing or endangered children, under federal rules, receipt of the top-level “presidential alerts“ is mandatory.

In the new lawsuit, J.B. Nicholas, Kristine Rakowsky and Liane Nikitovich contend that the system will effectively turn them into “government loudspeakers” that would allow Trump or others to disseminate propaganda. (source)

Webmaster's Commentary: 

As this was just a maiden test of the system, we have to wonder in what context the system will be used; and that is where I hope that those governing remember that George Orwell's brilliant novel, "1984" was a cautionary tale, not a how-to primer.
