Hawaii Sends Out False Missile Alert

January 13, 2018

OAN Newsroom

President Trump is briefed on the false emergency alert that was sent out to residents of Hawaii.

In a statement Saturday, the White House says the president has been updated on Hawaii’s emergency management exercise and added it was purely a state exercise.

Earlier, an alert was sent out to Hawaiians mistakenly warning them of an incoming ballistic missile.

Officials said the mobile alert sent out Saturday was a false alarm and the mistake occurred when an employee pushed the wrong button during a shift change.

Hawaii’s emergency management administrator took the blame for the mistake.

The incorrect alert warned Hawaiians to seek immediate shelter and added this is not a drill and reportedly took 38 minutes for confirmation that it was a false alarm.

Officials said they have suspended the state’s alert system while the issue is addressed.

    Just a reminder that three “adult film actresses” have come forward over the past weekend to say they engaged in extra-marital affairs with the so-called president of the United States.

    And looking back on the timeline of Trump’s alleged affair with Stormy Daniels, who allegedly received $130,000 (Where did THAT money come from? I’m betting Shelly Adelstein.) one month before the election to keep quiet about the 2006 affair.

    And apparently, the mainstream media is too busy figuring out how Hawaii was held by a fake nuclear bombing warning…okay that’s legit.

    Happy MLK Day –

  • MJABRTDK

    Your absolutely correct. I’m 66 yo married 40 yrs and my wife and I have four children and one grandson but I never served. I was drafted for Nam in 69 but I’ve been deaf in my right ear since birth so I was classified 4F and sent home. Thank you for you service to the country.

  • nfcapitalist

    Now Gibbard who seemed at some point to be a reasonable congressional leader from Hawaii is telling us president Trump needs to sit across the table with Kim jong un to “fix this.”

    Has Ms. Gibbard been watching the dictator of North Korea and what – exactly – does she believe needs to be given to that maniac that will make her feel safe?

    • Red

      To fix a eff up by the people running the EMS the PRESIDENT has to talk to KJU? WTF?

      • nfcapitalist

        This warning system is owned and operated by the state of Hawaii… not federal, but it probably should be the responsibility of the military.

        • Red

          Naw this probably happened BECAUSE the military wanted to see how people would react … this was a FREAKIN TEST

          • nfcapitalist

            Probably a display of vulnerability of Hawaii for the purpose of leveraging support of American $ for their communist success story… North Korea.

  • grandmother5

    Questions, how is it so easy to push the wrong button? Shouldn’t it be a little more protected? I know it’s important to be able to push that button in an actual alarm, but why was it so easy for an “employee in a shift change” to push it. Was it really an accident or was someone wanting to cause a panic and next time people would not pay attention to the alarm? Makes me wonder if the “accident” employee really needs to be there.

    • nfcapitalist

      This reminds me of an Acme Transmission Repair Co. commercial from years ago where a dufus buck toothed kid wearing bib-overalls in a gas station in the middle of the desert standing in front of a car that is smoking… “Gee boss, can I fix it… I always wanted to fix a transmission.”

      Yeah… not professional… not by a long shot!

  • marcthepig

    “Hawaii’s emergency management administrator took the blame for the mistake.”
    Took the blame.
    Took responsibility.
    Does any of that actually mean anything?
    Is anyone resigning?
    Is anyone getting fired?
    Or is it just words?

    • nfcapitalist

      It’s just words… but more to the point… it’s idiocracy.

    • Red

      Just words

  • Re

    What a wake up call.. ware do you run to may be the other side of the island. Maybe they could open up some lava tubes to hide in. Might as well have no warning at all. What did they have 30 minutes . You are going to die. No matter what.

  • despo

    Pathetic hawaii… occupied by communist imbeciles from micronesia…

  • Scotty

    That guy at the keyboard who did this probably smoked too much of their native produce.

  • Diane Coto

    Dan Bongino called it a ‘butt dial’ from a ‘blue state’. 🙂

  • hd625b

    Well, Hawaii, You had your first drill. Glad everyone is safe. Now is the time to get emergency personal equipment ready. How many ran around looking for their only flashlight, and, when it was found there were no batteries or the batteries were dead? Emergency food and water for 3 – 5 days. Don’t expect the stores to be open any time soon. Don’t expect emergency services to come when you call. They probably, will be pretty busy. Someone would do well to know a little about emergency first aid.

  • Mr. Maga

    it takes 10 seconds to “push the wrong button” but 38 minutes of everyone waiting for death from above, to send out an ALL CLEAR message? this story has much more to it. including, how many people got hurt in the mad dash to ‘seek shelter.’

  • carmenva

    I wonder how many where waiting to meet JESUS?

  • Tyrone

    Still trust the government to take care of you?

  • Dan

    I have all the respect in the world for our Vets. They deserve nothing less than the best…. but John Kerry’s a Vet too… J/S

  • Fed Up !

    Cry wolf so everyone ignores the next warning. Hawaii fakes everything like they did with odumas birth certificate.

  • Roscoe

    You cannot find a state anymore blue then Hawaii. The DemoRATZ run everything there so this is just further proof the DemoRATZ can not be trusted to perform the most simple tasks of governing anything not even a warning system.

  • Phi Lemon

    H.E.M. has just announced that the employee who pushed the wrong button is being promoted for discovering a weakness in the system.

  • Scotty

    That state is 99.9% democrat. The first indightment in the Hillary uranium scandal was I’m on Friday. This was a deliberate distraction from that, and of course they’ll blame Trump. All Democrats need to be taken out of all positions of authority across the country, as it’s clear they’re all brain damaged.

    • Vera Orsova

      Exactly what I said. Plus, it further promotes the anti-Trump hysteria. The FollyWood is already screaming that it is Trump’s fault. Every time you think Dems can’t sink any lower, they prove you wrong. Let’s hope that soon they will be 6 feet under.

  • Savatage64 (Always Deplorable)

    There probably was a real missile alert…. But two things happened, and because of those two things, they say it was an accident.
    First, the federal judge in Hawaii struck down the alert because Trump is president.
    Secondly, NKOR sukks at targeting so it harmlessly splashed down in the a Atlantic, near the Falkland islands.
    No one is the wiser.

  • William Thompson

    And then Trump slammed his hand down on the big red button……oh wait that didn’t happen Democrats.

  • Daryl

    Thank you One America News, for everything you do!

    Our tv stays on the OAN channel all day. Best news channel by far.

  • Victor Nazarian

    The problem isn’t that someone clicked on the wrong icon on a computer. The problem(s) are:
    1. Designers and administrators let a system be implimented that could do something so disruptive with only a mistaken mouse click.
    2. Hands-on personnel who made the mistake need more training on ways to prevent incidents of this magnitude and potential. This wasn’t just accidentally choosing the wrong color shirt on Amazon!
    3. Senior and junior personnel delayed corrective action of the mistake. There is no excuse for a system that is intended for real-time, critical communication to take dozens of minutes to distribute a message of such serious importance like ‘False Alarm’

  • Pirate Bill

    I am willing to bet anyone a 16 oz. coca-cola that this was not an accidental false alert.

    • Vera Orsova

      That’s what I said. The news about the first Uranium One related indictment hit the wires on Friday, so some Obama worshipers decide to deflect and hurt Trump in the process. I would just like to know if someone is going to look into how this could have happened, or if this is where it ends. Sort of, “oopsie, my bad” type of thing.

  • Deplorable Dirty Harry

    And their new demoRat senator blamed it on Trump.
    I thought she was ex-military…..must be smoke Hawaiian dope

    This was done intentionally to slam Trump. Gabbard (D) from Hawaii is all ready starting the talking points this is truly a setup

  • marcthepig

    The root of the problem in Hawaii is the place is run by “D”s. It’s kind of like Chicago, with beaches.

    How many times can you tell the same story over and over and over? Now we will be listening to every man, woman, and child as to how it affected them personally then and since. It was unfortunate …. but there is other news.

    • Vera Orsova

      That was exactly the reason why someone “accidentally” sent the warning. The Uranium One related indictment news hit the wires on Friday, so libturds needed a new shiny object to wave in front of their worshipers.

    You can’t use a Jitterbug for sensitive issues like this. Those 2” square buttons are easily, mistakenly tapped. Time to update that antiquated mobile system.

  • Yes liberals you are 1000% correct ..It was Trump who set off that alarm! But I must tell you why, even though you wont listen to reason.
    Word has it Trump set off the alarm to disrupt Obummers sleep while he played golf!
    Yes CNN you can take my story and run with it….. maybe even Madcow will interview me on how I know all this.

    • grandmother5

      ROTFLMAO! Good one.

  • monorprise

    Well there is a bright side At least we got a genuine test out of the false alarm.
    This is probably the first and hopefully only time we get to see the actual reaction from an entire states population as they prepare to get nuked.

    Hawaiians did a lot of things wrong they need to be better educated, there needs to be more signs and planning, and systems didn’t work as they should.

    Every state not just Hawaii can learn from this event because hopefully we will never see this again.

    • a voice of concern

      Yea, The mayor said part of the delay to correct is that they did not have a message configured that said the ast message was wrong… LOL what an idiot!

      • Deplorable Dirty Harry

        It’s a civil service requirement, for all men to wear frilly panties.

    • Deplorable Dirty Harry

      They might as well hang out on Waikiki beach cause a nuke is going to wipe the 20mi radius of Honolulu.

  • Elizabeth

    Seems to me rather than pointing fingers and looking for the culprit or scapegoat, Hawaii should see this as a blessing in disguise as it shows how the public would respond in a real incident. Hence a better perspective on more to be done in an effort of preparedness.

    • Lisa Chapman

      True

  • Diane

    Some surfers are claiming they heard a huge explosion in the water off North Shore, right after the alert. Have to wonder…

    • Deplorable Dirty Harry

      its called a wipe out.

  • sharkync

    The Dumbascraps playing games again…

  • Vera Orsova

    I would not be surprised if it comes out that the warning was sent by an avid Obama’s supporter(s) who wanted to further hurt President Trump. The news of the fist indictment in the Uranium One scandal hit the wire on Friday, so an Obama/Hillary worshiper decided to deflect and created bigger news. And, of course, our rabid dogs in Hollywood and MSM gleefully follow the new shining object that brings a glimmer of hope they will be able to impeach the President. Feel sorry for people in HI, but they did elect their government, so they need to live with it.

  • Judge Dolittle

    Why the hell is the news media, CNN holding President Trump responsible for the Emergency alert in Hawaii, it was a state employee who set off the alarm. We have to investigate the Network owners, and executives immediately. Hawaii is being managed by a bunch of goons who should be investigated.

  • ShortSweet

    No doubt this was unfortunate and I can only imagine what the people of Hawaii felt. But in reality, as horrible as it must have been, it may have saved countless lives in the future. It was indeed a heads up on how unprepared and naïve we are to the possibility of such a disaster. Now we are paying attention …. now we will look at this more seriously. Now we will prepare.

  • sanman99

    I would love to see video of the liberals standing in their corners chitting themselves waiting for someone to tell them what to do.

  • CDG

    Typical, a government worker screws up royally. Does he get fired? Nope. I’m sure the lawsuits against Hawaii will be starting soon. PTSD, anxiety, basically any health issue or accident during that time will be blamed on the Hawaiian government and checks will be cut! 💸💸💸

    • marcthepig

      He didn’t screw up. He did exactly what Hillary’s people told him to do. Create a distraction so it takes the focus off of the Uranium One indictments.

  • Ezra Tank

    Why are liberals up in arms over this. The message was sent out by a state employee. Last time I checked Hawaii is run by a Democratic governor.

    And the fact that this “message” can be sent out by the push of a wrong button is more scary than the message.

    One would think that a message this important that could cause mass panic would have to go through some type off multiple verification process before being issued.

    • ShortSweet

      Politics aside, at the very least the screw-up opened our eyes to how unprepared we are for such a disaster. I agree though there will be some who take advantage of the situation.

  • Ash Williams

    This is a major screw up from Hawaii’s emergency management.
    Imagine getting an Emergency Alert on your phone on Saturday morning saying “BALLISTIC MISSILE THREAT INBOUND. SEEK IMMEDIATE SHELTER. THIS IS NOT A DRILL.”
    That’s not a good way to start the day.

  • One_way

    Another fu(ked up democrat run state! This is all on the state of Hawaii and the inbred democrat incompetence.

    Kind of like pulling the wrong fire alarm?

    Hmmm….. that’s actually very scarry because those guys have they hands on NUKES !!! I or anyone else doo have a problem with that because ” someone actually hit the WRONG BUTTON??????”
    SO what they tell us that somebody did not have a piece a night before, or one to many shotts????
    Yes it’s NOT AN OVERWHELMINGLY COMFORTING TAUGHT
    and it’s really doesn`the matter what state you live in…..

    Perhaps KIM Hacked the system

    OK, A total blunder but it took 38 minutes to say never mind?

    • tedlv

      I read they quickly posted a retraction on Twitter. I guessing everyone on the island saw it right away.

  • littlepeaks

    Was the alert for all of Hawaii, or just certain areas? A prudent check for residents, would be to flip through the various major news networks (even the fake ones), to see what they were saying about an attack. Also, it would be interesting for a news network to interview people staying at the major military hotel there, to see what they did.

  • PierreLeBon

    Probably a ploy to get the population to vote Democract …….. in order to appease North Korea.

  • marcthepig

    Hawaii is another place that the Dems are turning into a toilet. I’ve been to Hawaii. Drunk homeless people sleeping on the street. Public parks in downtown Waikiki that the taxi driver warned us not to go into after dark. A regular liberal’s paradise.
    This missile warning was no accident, but no one will get fired, and the truth about it will never see the light of day.

  • nfcapitalist

    So the difference between “buttons” isn’t clear enough that an employee could mistakenly push an ALERT – WE’RE ALL GONNA DIE – button?

    Why isn’t that alert system under the control of the Military… ?

      Because they give a hiring preference to unstable trannies.

  • JohnGalt11

    Better news sources (the Brit papers) claim there had to be ‘buttons’ pushed, not a single ‘button’. Sound reasonable. Hard to push a series of buttons by ‘mistake’. I don’t believe in ‘mistakes’ that require a cognitive series of human actions take place to happen. The better sources also claim the ‘culprit’ is truly sorry for his actions and will be RETAINED at his (or her? No one says) position. Now that’s telling. Well, maybe not as it’s Hawaii, a truly blue socialistic hubris-tic State and it’s a ‘gub-mint’ job, too. If you fired the guy, he might just spill the beans and tell us that the Governor or a high-ranking minion ordered this done because they still can’t get over the fact their candidate is now a simple creepy has-been and not President.

    • nfcapitalist

      Another attempt to deconstruct security and confidence in our Department of Defense… and why wouldn’t this system be under the very strict control of men and women in uniform and not some politically motivated civilian employee… did I say why???

    • tedlv

  • Widl Man

    Oops, seems the liberal governor and his staff F’ed up. Big surprise!!

  • Janetta Lane

    Me’s a pondering… This is very much like pulling a fire alarm when there is no fire… It’s a crime and not only should the button pusher be charged, but his/her direct managers and leadership! Do not let FBI investigate.

  • Hans Pfall

    (a) I don’t know what this was, but it was no “Oops, we pushed the wrong button” event.

    (b) The idea that someone would survive a thermonuclear attack by “seeking shelter” in a confined area like one of the Hawaiian islands is pretty silly.

    (c) This COULD have been a “false flag” to test public behavior, or maybe a disinformation event for who knows what reason

    OR

    (d) What if a ballistic missile WAS launched, the warning was given, but our military technology managed to bring it down? Would they tell us or just say “Oopsie…hit the wrong button. No missile here. Show’s over. Move along.”?

    Something is rotten in Denmark.

    • Janetta Lane

      Well said!

    • JohnGalt11

      I like option (d), but option (a) is right. It takes several ‘buttons’ in sequence to ring that bell. My take is either prank of protest over the fact Trump is President and not the old lying bag-o-gas Hillary.

      • Brad

        Very very well put, especially the lying criminal Killary

      • Hans Pfall

        Hate to admit it, but that’s a possibility. Frankly, I think the hate runs so deep, if they thought starting a nuclear war would somehow tarnish Trump, they wouldn’t hesitate. “OK, so 60-70 million die. But Trump will look really bad…”

        I still lean to (d), but at this point I’m willing to entertain ANYthing. This is not the world I knew anymore.

    democrats actions in mismanagement of their state will cost lives if there is ever a real threat as people waste valuable time confirming if their state is incompetent or its real

    btw
    don’t put your kids in the storm sewers an island detonation will be followed by rain washing all the fallout right to them contaminating the ones that don’t drown

    and causing their bodies to plug the system causing flooding and concentrating contamination in your streets

    that’s what your state neglected to tell you along with everything else useful to your survival
    they would rather play political games than protect you

    while i don’t think any of you will survive if this ever happens because your trapped on isolated islands

    I’ve seen this news items on many news networks, but almost nothing on how the Hawaiians responded. I would like to hear about that.

    • Twinkle Toes

      You’re right; Fox News reported how Hollywood celebs staying in Hawaii are screaming at President Trump. I don’t care a hoot about them, what about the locals? They are more important than the Hollywood elite.

    • Talkie Tina

      They know nothing.

  • A marcus Young

    I do not trust Democrats. Neither should the President. There is something fishy about this “button pushing” The DHS, FBI and CIA need to look into this carefully.

  • Twinkle Toes

    Why is so much energy being spent on blaming President Trump and Republicans for this event? There is absolutely no possibility they don’t know who did this and that person should be in jail with no bail set. That person is to blame for this situation. They never hold themselves accountable, nor the appropriate person. I have do doubt this is another PC situation.

    • tedlv

      Because idiots hate President Trump, and are determined to blame and demean him, no matter what happens. But, really, you totally know that, like all intelligent, informed people do!

  • jrickert1974

    Instead of them complaining about being inconvenienced, perhaps they should start looking at the bright side that they were given a kick in the tail. I guarantee you that not one person that was freaking out has been thinking about what they would do if something actually went down. Instead, they’ve been consumed with the notion that the government needs to find a way to de-escalate tension. Probably not going to happen anytime soon.
    Military runs these types of drill all the time. Just to make sure folks are prepared and in a ready state of mind. Granted I would never expect civilians to think like that, but the more they do prepare mentally, the less likely they are going to freak out and hopefully go to that plan.
    We can only wish we had the opportunity to have prepared for 9/11.

      They don’t seem to understand that the military exercises Kimmie is so upset about were being done long before Trump was President and are necessary for the military readiness of our troops over there. The Lefties want us to appease Kimmie by no longer performing drills, and if that happens, he will next demand that we pull out of South Korea, which the Dems will be more than happy for us to do.

      It’s funny how the Dems (especially Bill Clinton) aren’t blamed for North Korea even HAVING nuclear warheads now, but they will blame TRUMP for not appeasing Ding Dong Un!!

    Big deal. Once in the early 1980’s the Soviet Union’s early warning system malfunctioned and told them they were under nuclear attack by the United States. Good thing they didn’t retaliate.

      but, the FAKE NEWS media certainly reacted when former President Reagan called the Soviet Union an ‘evil empire’ and said that bombing would commence in 5 minutes.

            I agree, but there isn’t anything we can do about that. Many people are too frightened to live in a free world where the government doesn’t have everything covered for you, from cradle to grave, including silencing all those who would criticize your beliefs.

        Hawaii congresswoman (D) Tulsi Gabbard already on CNN saying Trump hasn’t done enough to avoid conflict with N. Korea.

That’s why they are always calling the Korean and Vietnamese wars “Immoral” and crying about how we should never have interfered. Never mind that China and Russia can interfere, and nobody says anything.
