A false warning of a missile threat in Hawaii sent White House aides scrambling Saturday, frantically phoning agencies to determine a response and triggering worries about their preparedness almost a year into the Trump administration.
President Donald Trump’s Cabinet has yet to test formal plans for how to respond to a domestic missile attack, according to a senior administration official. John Kelly, while serving as Secretary of Homeland Security through last July, planned to conduct the exercise. But he left his post to become White House chief of staff before it was conducted, and acting secretary Elaine Duke never carried it out.
The Old Cold War guard is gone. The newcomers can issue threats but appear to be unaware on how to act on them..
“The U.S. government hasn’t tested these plans in 30 years,” said the senior administration official involved in the White House response. “All the fresh faces sitting around the table in the situation room have little idea what their roles would be in this scenario. The bottom line is that without a principals level exercise we shouldn’t have any confidence that the Cabinet would know what to do in an attack scenario.”
Around 25,000 people watched the sun rise across Stonehenge on the Summer Solstice this morning - an occasion that is said to have been celebrated for thousands of years at the ancient prehistoric site..
The longest day of the year. The most beautifully long day of the year…

Last night before the daily broadcast of MIDNIGHT IN THE DESERT began, Art Bell posted a Facebook message that breaking news could occur on the program.. Host Heather Wade followed up with a ‘brace for it’ message.When the intro music finally ended, Wade waded deep into the Men In Black danger zone: Revealed though her radio broadcast and now on the Midnight in the Desert page (http://ift.tt/2sqCSRZ) are secret documents said to be given to Wade by a trusted source..Stanton Friedman, an expert in the UFO community who goes back decades in research, told Art Bell that the documents now downloadable are all new pieces of information.. and even more, that they prove government knowledge of different types of extra-terrestrial beings. Even that we truly did recover bodies..Bombshell stuff if it proves true.
And speaking of that.. the MIDNIGHT page still has a caveat to the breaking news…
