Did Verizon Issue False Flag Emergency Text Alert To NJ Residents As Trial Balloon?
TRENTON, N.J. (CBSNewYork) — Verizon has issued an apology after sending out an alarming text message to New Jersey residents.
State police say the bogus text urging people to “take shelter before 1:24 p.m.” was sent out at 12:26 p.m. Monday to residents in Middlesex, Monmouth, Morris and Ocean counties.
Monmouth County Sheriff Shaun Golden said the message was marked as an “extreme alert” stating there was a “civil emergency” in the area.
“We did see quite a spike in 911 calls going into our sheriff’s office communication center,” Golden told 1010 WINS.
Verizon said the alert was supposed to say “test message.” Residents have been told to ignore the alert.
“This test message was not clearly identified as a test,” the company said in a statement. “We apologize for any inconvenience or concern this message may have caused.”

The Palestinian flag will be hoisted Tuesday at UNESCO headquarters, over a month after its admission to the UN cultural agency sparked anger and reprisals from the United States and Israel.
President Mahmud Abbas will travel to Paris to attend the event, which led Washington to pull funding to the UN organisation, and which is seen by many as a step on the Palestinians’ road to eventual UN membership.

As part of a month-long aircraft makeover, a painted American flag was removed from the tail of Sen. Barack Obama’s official campaign airplane and was replaced with the presidential candidate’s trademark “O” symbol. The refurbished 757 was unveiled to members of the news media today, 41 of whom boarded the craft and took off to meet Obama in Amman, Jordan, where the presidential candidate will stop as part of a Middle Eastern and European tour.

Parents of children at an elementary school in Colorado are furious after the American flag was lowered at the multi-cultural school and replaced with a Saudi Arabian flag. As the tenth anniversary of 9/11 approaches, someone at Bauder Elementary School in Fort Collins appears to have lowered the American symbol while raising that of the Muslim country in its place.

The failed prophecy did more than just damage Camping’s credibility: It also appears to have caused death and serious injury to true believers. An elderly man in Taiwan reportedly killed himself on May 5 ahead of the Rapture by jumping out of a building. He had heard that doomsday was imminent, and had taken recent earthquakes and tsunamis as early warning signs.

False prophet Harold Camping has said that he will make a public statement this evening vis his Open Forum radio program Click here to listen live online, starting at 8:30PM EST. SPOILER ALERT: he has no intention of apologizing, retracting or repenting in any way, shape or form.

Attempts to pull up the Family Radio website were unsuccessful at 11:19PM EST. No errors were returned, just an absence of pages. Looks like the webmaster was instructed to take everything down. NTEB will be interested to see if Family Radio still exists as a going concern come Monday, and what will be the health status – mental and/or physical – of cult leader Camping. In all of his pre-May 21 interviews, Camping would let out a hearty laugh when asked what the chances would be of him be wrong.

Well, his prophecy of the Rapture happening today at 6:00PM in New Zealand has failed to come true. Mr. Camping did say, however, that the bible “guaranteed it” would occur. Since it did not, Harold Camping is now officially a 2-time false prophet. NTEB will no longer report on anything he has to say.
