Soon After Hawaii’s False Alarm on Nukes, Japan Gave People a Scare. What Happened?

What’s going on?

NHK, Japan’s public broadcaster, sent out a news alert on Tuesday warning people to take shelter because North Korea had launched a missile. Five minutes later, NHK issued a correction to retract the false alarm. The broadcaster hasn’t explained exactly how the mistake happened.

Didn’t this just happen in Hawaii?

Yes – and it took longer for people to realize it was a false alarm. Over the weekend, Hawaiian residents received a text message reading “BALLISTIC MISSILE THREAT INBOUND TO HAWAII. SEEK IMMEDIATE SHELTER. THIS IS NOT A DRILL.” It took 38 minutes for Hawaii officials to follow up and say that the message was sent out by mistake.

Glenn’s take:

In 2018, crying wolf is more dangerous than ever. What happens if nuclear war breaks out and people don’t believe the warnings? We need a detailed explanation of both mistakes to know what happened, and one issue that should be addressed is whether a hacker set off Japan’s alert.

“The next war is going to be fought with ‘1’s’ and ‘0’s,’ not bombs,” Glenn said.

GLENN: Well now that explains everything. A little tip, Baby Groot is probably not the best employee to have pushing your emergency alert buttons.

After seeing the computer interface for the Hawaiian system, I’m not at all surprised a mistake finally happened. It looks like a screen grab from an old Apple 2. Hey guys, 1981 called… they want their technology back.

But I have absolutely NO idea what caused the false alarm in Japan, and the Japanese apparently don’t either. If they do, they aren’t telling anyone.

We better get a full and detailed explanation from both incidents because speculation is beginning to run wild, and you can’t really blame people for filling in the holes themselves when information is this scarce. Especially at a time when nuclear war seems more likely now than it has been since the Cold War.

It doesn’t help that this latest fake alert came simultaneously as Japan, along with 19 other countries, were meeting in Canada to talk about… wait for it… escalating pressure on North Korea over its nuclear program.

I don’t know whether it’s faulty out of date technology or if Kim Jong Un has weaponized Baby Groot, but these incidents are waking people up to a very dangerous reality, and that’s this: nuclear weapons are no longer the modern day first strike. Cyber warfare is. This is probably NOT what caused these false alarms, but we all have that creeping thought that these things are now all too possible in this day and age.

Science fiction becomes reality between now and the next 10 years. It’s a brave new world.

Comply or Die: How America Will Enforce TOTAL Wokeness

Have you noticed an insane number of companies "going woke" lately? There's a big reason for why this is happening NOW, and it's not just virtue-signaling. Big corporations, one by one, are pulling the trigger on an initiative that has been in the works for about a decade.

On Glenn TV this week, Glenn Beck exposes the framework that was built and inserted into business schools all across the countries. Critical race theory, gender, and "social justice" were given a higher priority than just doing good business.

Glenn has the documents that reveal what's coming to YOUR business or the company you work for and what will happen to companies that don't comply. And what started out as an indoctrination at the university level is now being taught in public schools K-12. They're teaching our kids to be equity activists right under our noses, and the indoctrination is working.

SO MUCH FOR BUYING ELECTRIC: Mayor Pete wants to tax EVERY mile you drive

It's almost as if they WANT you to feel the coming pain as deeply as possible. First, Biden nixed the Keystone XL Pipeline, driving the price at the pump through the roof. Now, (Mayor) Pete Buttigieg is heading up the Department of Transportation and floated the idea of taxing EVERY mile you drive. So much for buying an electric car to save money at the pump...

WARNING: Here's who's REALLY behind 'spooky, right-wing' extremism

Over the past year, the left has tried to paint conservatives as "spooky, right-wing" extremists who want to destroy the nation. But true conservatives know that's not true. However, there is a dangerous global movement that fits this "spooky" definition — masquerading as "right-wing" — and it's gaining momentum. It's called Traditionalism, with a capital "T."

This week on "The Glenn Beck Podcast," author and award-winning expert on the radical right Professor Benjamin Teitelbaum joined Glenn to define Traditionalism and explain why it's exactly how the left wants to paint conservatives — but that couldn't be further from the truth.

Teitelbaum said Traditionalism is the "most transformative political movement of the early 21st century" in his book, "War for Eternity," which Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Glenn Greenwald called "an indispensable text" for understanding "the most profound and tumultuous political shifts defining societies on every continent." It's a bizarre story, involving Steve Bannon, Hinduism, Hitler, mysticism, Aleksandr Dugin, the Constitution, and tons and tons of money.

Did you realize that there's a group of incredibly powerful people from all over the world who are praying for the apocalypse? It's called Traditionalism, with a capital "T." Professor Benjamin Teitelbaum describes it as the "most transformative political movement of the early 21st century." He writes about it in his book, "War for Eternity," which Pulitzer-Prize-winning journalist Glenn Greenwald called "an indispensable text" for understanding "the most profound and tumultuous political shifts defining societies on every continent."
