Worker who “hit wrong button” (twice) about Hawaii’s missile threat feels terrible, will face counseling

hawaii missile alert error

I predicted this person would not be fired. Alas, he’s being “reassigned.”

It’s good to be a government employee.

From Fox News: After Hawaii emergency officials confirmed that an alert about an inbound ballistic missile was a mistake, they said the employee who pushed the wrong button feels awful about the panic-inducing incident.

Vern Miyagi, who oversees the Hawaii Emergency Management Agency (EMA), said at a news conference late Saturday that the civil defense employee who pushed the wrong button regrets what took place.

“This guy feels bad, right. He’s not doing this on purpose – it was a mistake on his part and he feels terrible about it,” said Miyagi in a press conference Saturday afternoon.

Miyagi, a retired Army major general, said the employee would be “counseled and drilled so this never happens again,” but he did not say whether there would be disciplinary measures.

Rather than triggering a test of the system, it went into actual event mode. He confirmed that to trigger the alert, there is a two-step process involving only one employee — who both triggers the alarm, then also confirms it.

“There is a screen that says, ‘Are you sure you want to do this?'” Miyagi said. The employee confirmed the alert, inadvertently causing a panic in a state already on edge over saber-rattling missile threats from North Korea. 

Hawaii Gov. David Ige said there wasn’t a process in place to send out a message stating “that this is a false alarm.”

“You know, we were not prepared for that, the fact that an alert was issued that was incorrect,” Ige said. “So we have that built now.”

  1. yeah.. sure…. does the word ‘patsy’ come to mind? ‘fall guy’? is there a pool going on when this person will turn up dead after their ‘counseling”?

    • He was probably the patsy found dead on the runway. How coincidental that the Clintons, and Huma (staying at Alaweed Bin Talal resort)and possibly Obozo were in HI the exact same day? Did they really think the WH would fire missles at N.K. during the 38 minutes they left the population panicking? And all the stars, who were in HI, blaming Trump? There are no coincidences. The Clintons were with Rosie O’Donnel, and you know, these “stars” knew the drill and are being used as mouthpieces. Seems the American people are catching on to CIA false flags.

      A little bit O/T: but Trumps executive order on Human Rights Abuse seems to be directed at “foreigners” that have property or interests in the US. Meaning: Alaweed bin Talal…who concidentally has lots of US interest and very close ties to the Clintons. Its been rumored he is behind 9/11 (with lots of other puppets), but like with Weinstein, a major dem donor,..you cut the head off the snake financing these operations. Alaweed is protesting turning over 6 billion in assets to the Saudi Kingdom, meaning his US assets will then be controlled by the Saudi Kingdom….and turned back over to the US. Can you imagine Jack Dorsey, realizing that the USA, basically Trump, is now in control of Twitter?…..Oh what a tangled web we weave! These snakes are screaming louder than they ever have, because they are all going to be exposed….soon.

      The very fact that those who are “civil servants” really are a danger to the rest of our society. I don’t know if they just hire the intellectually disabled, but after dealing with many of a government worker–that would seem to be the problem.

  6. Just look at everything that’s happened since Trump won. The Obongo-Soros, Jewish, “gay” Podesta-Brock organization has been doing psyops, non-stop.

    Compare that to Obongo. He could do no wrong. These “news” channels are now all Trump-bashing, 24/7. In other words, someone is paying huge sums of money for propagandists to breathlessly read lying garbage day in and day out.

    No matter what he does, or doesn’t do, it is criticized. They bring on gaggles of “experts” to say that he doesn’t know what he’s doing or that he’s insane. The simple truth is that the whole psyop is SO insane that nobody wants to believe it happening when it is.

    You can recognize the shrill quality of it. The hand-wringing, hysterical, “we’re all doomed” undertone to all of it is disgusting. They say outrageous and provocative things and then act as if they had nothing to do with stirring up the phony controversy.

    There’s no doubt in my mind that the alarm was a psyop every bit as much as that thing in Las Vegas or any of the others. These guys are soulless and shameless.

  7. DCG . . . . Great article!

    It is dumbfounding that it took 38 minutes from the time the warning had initially been put out to the public. Well, it’s great that the guy who did this . . . “feels very bad.” Who really cares what his feelings are, he is an incompetent state employee. His employment needs to be terminated! The supervisor who “reassigned him” and has ordered “counseling” appears to be incompetent also. This should make him/her eligible for dismissal also.

    Can you imagine the profound fear and anxiety this stunt generated, particularly when you think about people with heart problems, or anxiety. I’ll just bet many of these people went into a nose dive. Can you imagine mother’s with young children who may not have been at home at the time of this instance . . . I would imagine that they were scared spit less.

    Back in the 1950’s, everyone was terrified of “the Russians,” who were going to nuke us at any moment. We had drills at school in case a warning came. I lived a little over a block from this huge siren that went off each Monday at 12:00 PM for testing. I am sure that in addition to me many little children were very frightened by the impending doom that was to come any day. I always thought . . . “How will Daddy be able to find us after the bomb,” since he was at work. To a little child, it was agony to think about our impending doom. Thank heavens that stupid siren was torn down years ago–I hated to even look at it.

    I have little doubt that the emotional trauma done to thousands and thousands of the people in Hawaii cannot even begin to be measured.

I don’t believe this ‘stupid civil servant’ deal for a single minute and cannot for the life of me believe anyone else does,either. I do believe the furor over Trump’s ‘shithole’ comment was manufactured to distract from this incident, but don’t know why they bothered, when so many believe this cock and bull story presented by the government……

  13. It might have been human error, but maybe the Lord had a hand in it. It could be a warning from the Lord that a missile or missiles from North Korea or China or Russia may level one or more cites in the United States because too many people love to thumb their noses at the Lord in this country (people who promote the sins of homosexuality, abortion, enviro-paganism, etc). I believe the Lord is moving people around in this country: some people will be in places of refuge and some people will be in cities marked for destruction.

    If you don’t want to have to worry about being fired and have a safe future – go to work for the democrats. You can screw up and then get a promotion. You can give away the democrat government secrets and get a “get out of jail Obama style card free and then run for office. You can steal democrat government computers and commit fraud at the bank and you are home free. Just be sure you are a democrat.

    They can’t run anything, look at the last eight years of Obama and now Hawaii democrats don’t even know how to push a button.

    Charles Walton-youtube-Nov. 30, 2017-Coincidence?….Las Vegas Victims….

    and

    New Nationalist-Jan. 15, 2018-Did RIT provide fake personas for Vegas?

    New nationalist hates Trump. I ignore that. But notice how the same players always seem to be involved in the false flags and psyops within the last x years, or so…

    CIA
    Clintons-
    Alaweed Bin Talal-
    (Soros-shorting MGM just prior to vegas shooting)

    That is, if you buy into that Vegas was an assassination attempt on King Salaman…which I do….who after the biggest mass shooting in the US captures Saudi Princess’-purging corruption, demanding $ turned over to Kingdon-Trump signs EO in december-Clintons getting exposed day by day…and then some jackass “accidentally” pushes the wrong buttons?

    Its all noise, as far as I am concered, between the BIG events….noise from lying media, noise from movie star scum…just squawking at the direction of higher ups.

    Its all tied together….part of an attempted coup not only in Saudi Arabia, but a coup for Trump. Clintons-Alaweed Bin Talal=biggest evil crooks on the planet, besides Soros and his ties will be known and cut too. Trump knows who was behind 9/11….and lots of other corruption, and they know..he knows.

    I believe Trump is triumphantly Trumping…its just gonna take time. This “accident” of pushing the wrong buttons, was no accident. It is my belief, those in charge were hoping for a National Crises, to remove Trump from WH.

    Just FYI….food for thought

  19. Okay, I am going to toss out some facts, there seems to be lots of theories running around.
    This alert went out on cell phones and some notices. The state wide sirens weren’t enacted. Whether is was a true accident or someone being cute, it will be awhile before we know the full truth.
    The first story we were given was, it happened during a shift change where two people are supposed to run the drill after every shift change. One guy supposedly arrived late, so the one guy tried to do it himself. He screwed up. Whether this was a BS excuse, we will soon find out.
    The alert system, in position for years, for tsunamis and hurricanes and since Nov. the missiles alerts. I would suspect knowing these people, many bugs are still in the system. No excuses.
    This was solely a state governmental procedure, it has nothing to do with the federal system at all. For those that want to blame the President, actors, gov. officials, including Tulsi Gabbard, shame in her, and various others. chose the wrong battle.
    And for people to have so little confidence in our security systems amazes me. We have an amazing sea base X band radar system, constantly manned with 70-80 people, floating all over the place that can detect a missile 4″ big from thousands of miles away and the means, destroyers and cruisers, to blow them to smithereens.
    Shame on Gabbard to use this as a excuse to attack the President, when she herself had served active duty in the ME. She should have used the opportunity to put people’s minds to rest and let them know we are being protected and to not lose faith in the US Navy. May she rot.
    I realize she is setting the path for a bigger run down the road, but that was just plain low.
    As for some of the remarks from Hollywood, well they just oozed ignorance.

  25. Here’s a thought. Maybe there actually was an inbound missile that the US Navy took down to avoid WW3. South Korea is the 7th largest economy in the world. No One wants a war with those North Korean Bastards. People need to stop saber rattling and think about how close Seoul is to the DMZ and pray that almighty God gives wisdom to the President and all of the Joint Chiefs.

      • Yes, the link I provided above is more plausible than not. Think about it. Whoever’s responsibility it is to “push the button” (i.e. select a computer-generated response), must get direction to do so from someone. I’m sure the don’t just sit there playing with the system.

        Anyone with access to a warning system like this would obviously be trained. I’m not buying it. Either they had a genuine threat or the Demon-Rat Mafia decided to play more games.
