Yes okay, but what are your conspiracy sites saying about Hawaii?? That’s far more interesting than Hillary and her evil underground lair, because it could actually be true. Are we saying it was Russia? North Korea? The Democrats? The Republicans? What’s the top conspiracy??

Reputable news websites are conspiracy sites?

It was enlarged by quite a huge amount by Obama in December of 2016.

I can’t believe that’s the one time something happens that’s worthy of a conspiracy theory, everyone’s STILL too busy talking about Hillary Clinton. She’s literally just some old woman in upstate New York, stop worrying about her.

It seems to be pretty damn odd if it was sent out twice. I didn't see that. I've been doing other things and not able until now to check things out. I did read it was a a Hawaii Emergency Management Agency employee who did it and didn't realize he'd pushed the wrong button. That's all I know. What do you think about it? You must have something in mind to keep bringing it up.

And then there's this explanation which slightly conflicts with the other statement.

About ten minutes after the initial alert was issued, the Hawaii Emergency Management Agency tweeted there was not a missile threat. But the official alert saying there was no threat didn't go out until 38 minutes after the first warning was issued.

Vern Miyagi, an administrator with the Hawaii EMA, said the issue was caused by human error during a shift change.

"It was a procedure that occurs at the change of shift where they go through to make sure the system is working, and an employee hit the wrong button," said Miyagi.

Miyagi saving face? No clue.

Conspiracy Theory: Maybe Trump told them to do it? Another distraction from his many woes?

Oh wait, Trump hasn’t talked about it. If he does, he’ll say it was Obama’s fault! :shock: :-(

Yeah, I’ve seen conspiracy theories in all directions:

- Trump did it to distract us from his racist comments
- The Democrats did it to make Trump look bad
- There was an actual missile but it was intercepted
- Someone pressed the wrong button
- It was a cyber attack
- It was deliberate, to get people scared so they’ll be more accepting of a war with NoKo

Hmmm, with so many possibilities, will we ever know the truth about anything?

The most likely explanation is probably the official one: Someone messed up.

However, if a missile was launched across the Pacific and intercepted, I suspect it would play it exactly like what happened yesterday: A warning followed by claims it was a false alarm.

There’s another possibility - it was a drill. It’s probably bad PR to tell the people they were being experimented on, but it’s probably important to do.

Probably a drill yes, covered up as a mistake.

This leads us to the unsettling conclusion that the horrible opinions he now gives aren't necessarily his, but are rather the things he knows will appeal to his voter base. He knows that nothing he says or does will win round the liberals, so his best bet is to cement his reputation amongst his biggest supporters. And troublingly, the best way to do that is by doing stuff like this - some of them really do love the way he talks about other countries, other world leaders, foreign policy and suchlike. And that is a disturbing conclusion, because it means that the problem isn't one man, it's 100,000,000+ American men and women.

The positive news of course is that there are another 100,000,000+ Americans (around 2,000,000 more in fact) who abhor Trump and everything he currently stands for.


Are you not familiar with the history of both his and his Father's discrimination against people of color in their real estate dealings? https://r.search.yahoo.com/_ylt=A86.J79uB1xaMFgASiIPxQt.;_ylu=X3oDMTByb2lvbXVuBGNvbG8DZ3ExBHBvcwMxBHZ0aWQDBHNlYwNzcg--/RV=2/RE=1516009455/RO=10/RU=https%3a%2f%2fwww.washingtonpost.com%2fpolitics%2finside-the-governments-racial-bias-case-against-donald-trumps-company-and-how-he-fought-it%2f2016%2f01%2f23%2ffb90163e-bfbe-11e5-bcda-62a36b394160_story.html/RK=2/RS=_I8LjjnH1IxGUi01sCArxDXO7Cw-

Sorry for stupidly long code, but it works.^^^^
Google is full of the stories.

And I am friends with someone that grew up in Manhatten who was familiar with the Trump Family and D.T.'s racism behavior in their business dealings. Trump was NOT a liked person at any time, and my friend is not from a family on welfare, they are all big names in the Entertainment Industry, white of mostly Armenian descent.
.It is my uppermost hope that even histories' genius's lost their minds as they aged. I'd hate to think that I really am an idiot. sjm

I recently saw this story from a year ago: Woody Guthrie Loathed His Racist Landlord: Donald Trump’s Father

I suppose
Old Man Trump knows
Just how much
Racial Hate
he stirred up
In the bloodpot of human hearts
When he drawed
That color line
Here at his
Eighteen hundred family project ....
