2…………> Wrong Number: US Missile Defense
In a supreme display of bureaucratic idiocy and irresponsibility, Hawaii Emergency management officials sent the following alert to millions of citizens, all in capital letters: “Ballistic missile threat inbound to Hawaii. Seek immediate shelter. This is not a drill.”
The “error” caused a stir on social media and panic among the US state’s residents, yet no one answered the basic question: “Was someone on drugs, and will the person responsible be fired?” Answer? Of course not, those federal and state misfits have lifelong assurance that no one can fire them.
Hawaii Governor David Ige apologized to the state’s residents for the “pain and confusion” caused by the false alarm.
“STATEMENT: While I am thankful this morning’s alert was a false alarm, the public must have confidence in our emergency alert system. I am working to get to the bottom of this so we can prevent an error of this type in the future. This should not have happened. We are investigating the sequence of events that occurred. An error was made in Emergency Management which allowed this false alarm to be sent,” Gov. Ige said.

Turn of the channel on people who have offended and demeaned the teachings of our beloved Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, also known as Rabbi Emmanuel. Walk away, let them dry on the scorching sun. Listen to the sound of Christus Vincit, a message of peace and hope.

Russia has deployed a new division of S-400 surface-to-air missiles in Crimea in an escalation of military tensions over the peninsula, an iron dome that will control the airspace over the border with Ukraine and bring down airborne targets over 300 miles range.
The systems radars can track up to 300 targets simultaneously, and the division’s battalions were also supplied with other advanced weapons, including Javelin anti-tank missiles.
Washington is expected to impose fresh sanctions against Moscow next month for alleged meddling in the 2016 US presidential vote, further straining relations between the two superpowers.
