Feds to Cut Off All TV and Radio Broadcasts on 11.09.11 – Is There a Connection Here? You Be the Judge…


The Blaze: If you have ever wondered about the government’s ability to control the civilian airwaves, you will have your answer on November 9th.

On that day, federal authorities are going to shut off all television and radio communications simultaneously at 2:00PM EST to complete the first ever test of the national Emergency Alert System (EAS).

This isn’t a wild conspiracy theory. The upcoming test is posted on the Public Safety and Homeland Security Bureau website.

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 will be 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.

The EAS has been around since 1994. Its precursor, the Emergency Broadcast System (EBS), started back in 1963.  Television and radio broadcasters, satellite radio and satellite television providers,  cable television and wireline video providers are all involved in the system.

So this begs the question: is the first ever national EAS test really a big deal?

Probably not. At least, not yet.

But there are some troubling factors all coming together right now that could conceivably trigger a real usage of the EAS system in the not too distant future.  A European financial collapse could bring down U.S. markets. What is now the “Occupy” movement could lead to widespread civil unrest. And there are ominous signs that radical groups such as Anonymous will attempt something major on November 5th- Guy Fawke’s day.

Now we know in the event of a major crisis, the American people will be told with one voice, at the same time, about an emergency.

All that’s left to determine is who will have control of the EAS when that day comes, and what their message will be.


The Blaze recently reported that at 2 p.m. EST on Wednesday, November 9th, The Federal Emergency Management Agency and the Federal Communications Commission will conduct the first-ever national test of the Emergency Alert System, where radio and televised broadcasts across the country will be disrupted for roughly…three-and-half minutes:

“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,” wrote Buck Sexton in our earlier report.

During the upcoming test, an audio message will likely recite, “this is a test” while text at the top of the screen might read that an “Emergency Alert Notification has been issued.”

While emergency broadcast tests are typically used by state and local governments to issue severe weather alerts and other emergency information, there has never been a nationwide activation of the system before. Federal agencies cite the reasons for the national test are to ensure emergency preparedness and to pinpoint flaws in the new EAS system.

Meanwhile, the thought of the nation’s broadcast systems being completely cut off for nearly four minutes — in addition to broadcasters being stripped of control — has left many, including Glenn, feeling unsettled over who, exactly, will have power over our airwaves.

When speaking about the old EBS tests, Glenn said that it “didn’t take control away from the broadcaster.” The new system, however, “seizes control of the broadcast frequency.”

“If the state wants to take control…they can just take it and there is nothing I can do about it” Glenn stated.

Massive Tsunami Drill Coincides With Continent Killer Asteroids Close Pass In November


The following is to take place November 9 – 10, 2011 according to the International Tsunami Information Center — the conspiracy deepens:

9-10 November 2011: In August 2010, the PTWS Steering Committee (SC) met to discuss the progress of the PTWS during the intersessional period, including the next PTWS exercise. Considering the general objectives of PACWAVE08, the SC approved the PACWAVE Summary Report and requested Working Groups 2 and 3 (Tsunami Detection, Warning and Dissemination; Tsunami Awareness and Response) to cooperate in the preparation of an end-to-end communication exercise PACWAVE11 in November 2011. The actual evacuation of local communities (or parts of it) will be left to the decision of local or national authorities. A PTWS Exercises Task Team was formed, chaired by ITIC and New Zealand, to organize the exercise and elaborate on detailed scenarios.PacWave11 will be held on 9-10 November 2011 as a multi-scenario exercise that will allow all PTWS countries to exercise using a destructive local or regional tsunami scenario.  PacWave 11 will also be used to introduce new tsunami advisory products of the PTWC that were proposed by the PTWS Enhanced Tsunami Warning Products Task Team and approved by ICG/PTWS-XXIV. IOC Circular Letter 2390 was issued on 13 May 2011 announcing the exercise and requesting PTWS Countries to nominate a PacWave11 focal point.  IOC Manual and Guides 58 on How to Plan, Conduct, and Evaluate Tsunami Exercises was issued in July 2011.  The PacWave11 Exercise Manual (IOC TS 97) was published in August 2011.  UNESCO will issue a press release on 1 November 2011.

“Sample Tsunami Energy Forecast Map” and “Sample Coastal Tsunami Threat Map”
This isn’t the first time Exercise Pacific Wave has been done. It was done in 2006 on May 16 and 17 using Philippines and Chile tsunami sources. Java is in roughly the same region as the Philippines and experienced several large devastating EQs (and a tsunami) soon after the exercise.

Pacific Wave was done again from October 28-30, 2008, and used a northeast Japan source.

Coincidentally there are other exercises scheduled.
Mega tsunami drill in Crete, Greece right now

The scenario:

An 8R scale earthquake strikes close to the island of Crete. A huge tsunami is generated.
The exercise is based on the July 365 BC tsunami when an undersea earthquake measuring over 8R occurred in the sea west of Crete and caused not only huge geological changes on the island, but terrible disasters, exacerbated by a tsunami that led to erase from the map dozens of cities Crete and caused thousands of dead.

The drill

The Pan-European wide drill called “Poseidon” was organized “on the map” last May and takes place these days 24 and October 25 on location (the schedule was for Chania but I heard that they included Heraklion too -the two biggest cities of Crete) .

On location, there are “watchers” from over 30 countries participating in the European Civil Protection Mechanism.  (I heard on tv that it concerns especially all the countries that are around the Mediterranean Sea).


Poseidon is a program funded by the European Union, aimed to prepare the Civil Protection Mechanism in Greece to deal with a devastating earthquake tsunami, through the cooperation of Civil Protection Authorities at local, regional, national and European level. The Civil Protection Authorities of Cyprus and France participate in this project and an evaluation of the exercise will be performed through the European Civil Protection Mechanism.

Check this too (both from the same site):  Successful test of the Tsunami Warning System in North-eastern Atlantic, Mediterranean and connected seas

Paris, 10 August
– The communication network of the Tsunami Early Warning and Mitigation System for the North-eastern Atlantic, the Mediterranean and connected seas (NEAMTWS) was tested successfully on 10 August, marking a leap forward for the system which was initiated under the aegis of UNESCO’s Intergovernmental Oceanographic Commission (IOC) in 2005.

The test involved the Tsunami Warning Focal Points of 31 countries in the region. They received a test message at 10.36 UTC via electronic mail, fax and the Global Telecommunications System (GTS) from the Kandilli Observatory and Earthquake Research Institute (KOERI, Turkey). Early results show the messages were well received within a few minutes of being sent.

UNESCO Director-General Irina Bokov

a expressed satisfaction over the success of the test. “This past decade alone has shown us the terrible destructive power of earthquakes and tsunami on several occasions,” said the Director-General. “Today’s test represents a significant step towards improving security for the lives of tens of millions of people in the North-eastern Atlantic and Mediterranean, and meeting UNESCO’s ambition of establishing early warning systems globally.”

On November 9, 2011 hospital personnel and various first responder agencies from the MidSouth region will participate in a community medical exercise. This exercise will provide practical training experience to prepare for medical response during a large scale event. On Wednesday November 9th, hospital personnel will work with volunteer patients playing the role of injured victims to provide a realistic and practical experience in treatment and response Oddly enough…the UK’s NEAF Nuclear Emergency Exercise has Exercise Nightstar 11 on 9 November 2011.

Nightstar is an annual ‘live play’ demonstration of emergency arrangements.

§ 1.7 Earth Impact by an Asteroid: Prospects and Effects

400 meter-wide asteroid to make pass by Earth

Posted on October 25, 2011 by The Extinction Protocol

October 25, 2011 – A 1300-foot-wide (400 meters) asteroid, which is more than one and a half times the length of a soccer pitch, will pass within 0.85 lunar distances of the Earth on November 8/9, 2011. Discovered on December 28, 2005 by Robert McMillan of the Spacewatch Program near Tucson, Arizona, 2005 YU55 is believed to be a very dark, nearly spherical object. According to NASA’s Near Earth Object Program: “Although classified as a potentially hazardous object, 2005 YU55 poses no threat of an Earth collision over at least the next 100 years. However, this will be the closest approach to date by an object this large that we know about in advance and an event of this type will not happen again until 2028 when asteroid (153814) 2001 WN5 will pass to within 0.6 lunar distances.” While neither the European Space Agency (ESA) nor NASA has suggested that YU55 poses a threat to Earth, plans to develop a mission to counteract a potential asteroid collision in the future are already underway. The ESA is planning to fire an ‘impactor’ satellite into a ‘test’ asteroid in 2015 to see if the object’s trajectory can be altered.  The Agency is conducting the test mission in light of the minimal threat posed by the 700-1100-foot-wide 99942 Apophis asteroid, which has a one in 250,000 chance of impacting Earth in 2036. –IWO

** Are the dates of the first-ever national test of the Emergency Alert System, instead of the usual state or local tests, coinciding with all the unusual ‘natural’ occurrences on or around 11.9.11 as well as the on-going global manmade OWS protests coincidental, planned, really a test, if so a test for what or is it the dreaded spark to set off a national emergency, to test ‘their’ ability to ignite a spark for a coming planned event for the future or the actual spark beginning the takeover by a Global NWO??? 

Food for thought… You be the judge!  And if it is more than coincidence are you prepared? **

About Ask Marion

I am a babyboomer and empty nester who savors every moment of my past and believes that it is the responsibility of each of us in my generation and Americans in general to make sure that America is as good or even a better place for future generations as it was for us. So far... we haven't done very well!! Favorite Quotes: "The first 50 years are to build and acquire; the second 50 are to leave your legacy"; "Do something that scares you every day!"; "The journey in between what you once were and who you are becoming is where the dance of life really takes place". At age 62 I find myself fighting inoperable uterine Cancer and thanks to the man upstairs and the prayers from so many people including many of my readers from AskMarion and JustOneMorePet... I'm beating it. After losing our business because of the economy and factors related to the re-election of President Obama in 2012 followed by 16-mos of job hunting, my architect-trained husband is working as a trucker and has only been home approximately 5-days a month since I was diagnosed, which has made everything more difficult and often lonely... plus funds are tight. Our family medical deductible is 12K per year for two of us; thank you ObamaCare. But thanks to donations from so many of you, we are making ends meet as I go through treatment while taking care of my father-in-law who is suffering from late stage Alzheimer's and my mother-in-law who suffers from RA and onset dementia as well as hearing loss, for which there are no caretaker funds, as I continue the fight here online to inform and help restore our amazing country. And finally I need to thank a core group of family, friends, and readers... all at a distance, who check in with me regularly. Plus, I must thank my furkids who have not left my side through this fight. You can see them at JustOneMorePet.

    This is very informative and thank you for posting!
    LOVE & Peace

    PS: government has too many secrets and authority
    but that is a topic in itself that deserves discussion.

    I have a hard time trusting our government!

    • ronmamita says:

      We will survive, if we trust ourselves and reclaim our authority from the government.
      Why continue trusting the govt when they have habitually betrayed the public trust?
      The govt is in breach of trust and people shall unite and create solutions by ignoring government and creatively supporting community.

    do not forget that antenna tv was deleted a few years ago to the government controlled digital box in your home. no one can get tv without the two way spying device called the digital box. every home has them, if you watch tv. see on your tube that these boxes have been opened and contain microphones, an it is a well know fact that any viewing device you can see can also work in reverse and they can see you. so its like everyone has a camera and microphone throughout their homes, check into e.l.f. technology, h.a.a.r.p. and blue beam project. also human like holograms. money is controlled tracked by the security stripes in them. all passports are mircrochipped and chips in drivers lisc. are here. you car has a tracking chip if its newer. as cash goes away all your spending will be tractable, its called debit cards.
    there is so much chatter out there. the only thing that can be depended upon is your faith in God. seriously the Bible said it would come to this and we know from its writings we are in the last days here.
    repent and turn to Him before its too late. He loves you and will find peace and security only through Him. whatever happens He will be with you. trust in Him today and give your heart and life to Him, no matter what you have done He forgives you. this message is for you, its meant to reach your hardened heart. do not forget He died to set you free…….

  7. Since I am using an old fashioned antenna (call it “rabbit ears”, if you want), to pull in my radio stations. Here, in Central Illinois, I have listened to my local PBS station, FM 90.9, and I never complained, even about the programming that I didn’t like, since I was not a dues-paying member.

    The problem is that WILL FM 90.9 is changing its programming, due to federal, and state, budget cuts, and, as a result, we are losing shows like Riverwalk: Live from the Landing, Blues before Daybreak, and others.

    My question is: Where should I look, in, and around, Springfield, Champaign, Decatur, area for another fm radio station which plays music by such greats as:

    1) Louis Armstrong
    2) Count Basie
    3) Lena Horn

    and so on.

    Any station call letters (please include station call numbers), in, or around, downstate Illinois?

    Any suggestions?
