From Our Fear Mongers In The Media
President Trump had hardly finished his “Fire and Fury” Threat to North Korea yesterday, when Chicken Littles in the Press were mongering our fears about Crazy Kim Jong Un’s imminent Nuclear Attack on America. Moments later, CNN was already broadcasting from a Hawaiian Bunker, preparing their dumbed-down viewers for World War III. No Kidding!
CNN’s Jeffrey Toobin even chided his own network Tuesday night for scaring its viewers with talks of underground bunkers in response to reports that North Korea’s latest threat was an attack on Guam.
“Can we just dial this all back a little bit?” Toobin said. “This is an important story but it is an unconfirmed report of a possible technological development from North Korea, and suddenly on television we’re talking about people hiding in caves in Hawaii.”
Even after Trump’s Secretary of State Rex Tillerson assures there’s no “imminent threat” and “Americans should sleep well at night,” the headline at Newsmax read: “North Korea Nuclear War? 7 Things to Do in the Event of a Major Disaster”
Here were seven things to do in case you and your family are facing a major disaster stemming from a possible nuclear attack:
- Stay calm — Although U.S. relations with China have been tarnished recently, the two nations participated in negotiations to pass the UN resolution. The U.S. has the greatest missile defense system in the world. Its recent test of the Terminal High Altitude Area Defense (THAAD) missile defense system successfully intercepted a target over Alaska, CNN reported. North Korea may have nuclear capabilities, but its program is in its infancy.
- Prepare for emergencies — Have an emergency supply kit that can last for up to two weeks and make a family emergency plan, recommends Ready.gov, the official website of the Department of Homeland Security. Find out from local officials if buildings in your community have been designed as fallout shelters. Think of any possible shelters in your area, such as basements, tunnels, middle floors of high-rise buildings, or subways.
- Take cover immediately — Although areas in or along the Pacific may seem more vulnerable, an attack could theoretically strike anywhere. Iowa’s Polk County Emergency Management recommends protecting yourself from radioactive material with any shield or shelter. But, if you can, go as far below ground as possible.
- Get indoors — Keep away from windows during or following a nuclear strike that is near your home. Seek immediate shelter if you happen to be outdoors and seek shelter in a nearby building if you are driving, advises the Hawaii Emergency Management Agency.
- Remain sheltered — Do not leave your shelter until advised by authorities that it is safe or for as long as two weeks. Electrical, water, and other utilities might be damaged, so it’s possible you may be advised to leave a shelter temporarily to find food, water, or medical care.
- Stay tuned — Listen to local radio stations and TV if possible for official information. Cell phones and the internet may be unavailable. Radioactive material can contaminate the air, water, and ground surfaces for miles after a nuclear attack. Radio and television can provide news about what to do, where to go, and the places to avoid.
- Follow instructions from emergency response personnel — whether there is a warning of a nuclear attack or the situation appears to be over, stay in a shelter or below ground until you are instructed to do otherwise.
But wait— one reason The Blower was not taking Newsmax’s Nuclear Warnings all that seriously was… they forgot to tell people to do what people always do when real danger is approaching:
And besides Bread and Milk, they shouldn’t forget the toilet paper.
