Is It All
About Fighting Terrorism Or Controlling We The People?
Congress Approves 30,000 Spy Drones Over
America Media Fails Us Once Again; US Police State Tightens
With 24/7 Surveillance NewsFocus Op/Ed, by Tim Watts - 020812
Once again, another shocking story that threatens the personal
privacy of US citizens has been kept from us by our politicians and the
Did you know that a bill, HR 658, the
FAA Air Transportation Modernization and Safety
Improvement Act, has just passed both the House and the
Senate that authorizes the use of 30,000 spy drones over America? Like the anti-Posse Comitatus NDAA legislation that passed in November,
this bill was not widely reported by the mainstream media.
Don't feel bad for not knowing about this, because like the
anti-Constitutional NDAA legislation, they purposefully tried to hide this from
the American public. The corporate controlled mainstream media was once again
complicit and was an integral accessory in this crime against "We the People."
The corporate mainstream media failed us all miserably.
Think about the enormity of this for just a second... 30-THOUSANDspy
drones flying overhead surveilling the US. If you divide that by 50 states,
that is 600 drones per state! Most states don't even have one-third of
that number in total counties, so 600 drones, or more per state, is a bit overwhelming. And
considering that some states are very small, such as Rhode Island and
Connecticut, it won't take that many to spy on those diminutive territories,
leaving far more drones to cover the larger states.
This is an outrage, plain and simple. If you're not pissed off
about this, you've got shit for brains. There is no good reason why we should
have 24/7 surveillance of American citizens. This creates a police state! It is
an invasion of our personal privacy.
Of course the advocates for
creating this intensified police state will proffer that this is needed "to
fight terrorism," but let's examine that issue for just a moment.
We've only had two successful acts of terrorism in the US,
both happening well over ten years ago. It's not like we're under a constant
monthly or weekly barrage of terrorism, at least not from foreign threats.
We've been terrorized by our politicians and our media plenty, far more
than we have from foreign entities. That's an undeniable fact. Again, just look
at the record.
We had the
9/11 attacks in 2001, and then shortly after we had the anthrax attacks. As
we look at both of those events, there is an incredible amount of evidence that
points to a false flag operation, state sponsored terrorism by rogue
factions within our own government, but blamed on a foreign entity. See the NewsFocus reports on the 9/11 attacks
and the anthrax attacks.
In looking at these lone acts of terrorism, please keep in mind
one key thought... that these plots succeeded solely because of US officials
and their dereliction of duty, yet our Constitution and "We the People' are
the ones who have been made to suffer. The highly flawed 9/11 Commission
admitted as much. Senator Mark Dayton excoriated the Commission panel over bald
faced lies in their report that attempted to cover up the numerous failures of
protocol on that fateful day. Our top officials failed to do their jobs on 9/11,
yet no one was demoted in rank and no one was prosecuted for their egregious
ineptitude. Bush, Cheney and Rumsfeld all failed to act appropriately, and in
fact, acted suspiciously outside the norm of their designated duties.
As far as the anthrax attacks go, they were actually tracked to a
US military facility, at Ft. Detrick, Maryland. That's right, the anthrax used
in the attacks was made in a US Army lab. Once that story became public, they
shifted their blame from foreign terrorists to designated patsies within the US
defense structure. The story died immediately.
So, with all of this in mind, we have only had TWO "alleged"
successful terrorist attacks in this country in eleven years time, and
both were highly suspicious events that have been attributed to false flag
attacks from rogue officials within the US government, yet for some reason, we
keep passing law after law that rescinds our Constitution and Bill of Rights, to
set up a virtual police state in the US.
Does this honestly make any sense to you?
For what it's worth, we are actually
fomenting terrorism with our highly bogus, bullshit
War On Terror.
We have formally invaded and brutally attacked three countries
without provocation, Afghanistan, Iraq and Libya, plus
we're also bombing Pakistan and killing scores of innocent
civilians there as well.
This reporter's take is,
the powers that be (TPTB) are
trying to escalate terrorism to justify their fascist takeover
of the United States. They're literally trying to piss off
foreign entities to pick a fight. Again, they're attempting to
justify their assault on "We the People," encouraging
foreign terrorist attacks, all to establish a police
state lockdown in America. This isn't about fighting terrorism
folks, it's about keeping us under their heel, under a 24/7
Look at what's happened in just
the last few months... Congress passed the NDAA Act behind our
backs, authorizing military use on US soil against American
citizens. At the same time, President Obama has enacted the SIP,
the Strategic Implementation Plan against domestic
If you speak out against the government for
criminal activity or for egregiously attacking our
Constitution, you can legally be considered an extremist and a
terrorist. Bad news for you, because now you can be hauled away
and imprisoned for life, without a trial or your Habeas Corpus
In addition, FEMA has drawn up a new Continuity of Government
(COG) plan that incorporates offensive military definitions and
criteria that can be used against "We the People." Add to this
the fact that the FBI has enacted new absurd terrorism
identifiers that make us all suspects. (Having more than seven
days worth of food in your house makes you a terrorist suspect.
Please see my
three-part series on the NDAA legislation.)
What is most unusual about the vote for the new drones over
America bill (HR 658), it was very much a partisan vote, with Republicans being
the primary supporters and Democrats staunchly voting against it. If you doubt
this, you can see
the roll-call of votes below. This is particularly disturbing. How is this a
The house vote was very close,
with 223 yes votes and 196 no votes. Sadly there were 13 chicken-shits that
decided not to vote on the bill.
The real curiosity is that the vote in the Senate was
overwhelmingly in favor of the bill, with only 20 Senators voting no. Again,
most of those voting no were Democrats. Still, how does the Senate vote highly
in favor of such a horrific bill, when the House is nearly split down
the middle? And once again, the partisanship absolutely baffles me.
According to the study, the larger the amygdala, the more
susceptible the brain is to being scared. At face value that seems patently
this reporter. Seriously, it sounds absolutely ridiculous, but in light of the
recent vote on HR 658, I'm seriously beginning to wonder.
To be fair, there were some Democrats involved in the passage of
this bill, such as
the regular corporate shills, like Diane Feinstein, Barbara Boxer, and Carl
Levin, but the support for HR 658 is far and away one-sided. That is disturbing
to see. Again, it truly baffles this reporter, but I digress from the gist of
If you think that having 30,000 drones over America is going to
make us safer, you've been watching too much TV. How do these drones know who is
traveling in a particular vehicle? How do they know if a sleeper cell has
suddenly become active, or if a group has successfully infiltrated the country?
Would these drones have stopped the 1995 Oklahoma City bombing? Would they have
stopped the 9/11 attacks? Would they have stopped the anthrax attacks? The
answer to all three of these questions is a resolute NO, because US authorities
were asleep at the wheel to begin with, or complicit in all three of those events.
Compromising our liberties for the false hope of a safety that
cannot be guaranteed is a foolish idea for a society that cherishes its freedom.
So how will 30,000 drones over the US keep us safe from
Maybe a better question is, how might 30,000 drones be used to
enforce a police state over American citizens?
The latter is more chilling and
offers far more possibilities for TPTB. This is quite disconcerting given the
fact that during the latest census all of
our homes were GPS'd.
The bill is worth $63.4 billion dollars, so it will be
interesting to track the money on this one. Considering that we are in such a
dire economic crisis is this country, it is interesting that they deem it
necessary to spend $63.4 BILLION dollars at this time.
Another disturbing thought, these drones can remain airborne for
up to 50 hours at a time. What perils does this offer for air traffic safety, by
adding 30-THOUSAND new aircraft to our skies? The FAA has nine months from the
bill's signing to submit a plan to safely allow access for the drones.
The fact that our corporate controlled mainstream media failed to
report on this, as they failed to do with the NDAA legislation, ought to tell
you that they are working closely with the powers that be (TPTB). No other conclusion can be made. The media have
been complicit and willing participants in these anti-Constitutional attacks on
"We the People." This reporter advocates naming them as accessories to
the crimes of state, for they are sharp enough to ferret out the real story, yet
they refuse to do so.
One side note on HR 658... it also allows for GPS control and
landing of aircraft. This is actually supposed to be the major impetus for the
bill, with the drones as a secondary component. The GPS aspect is somewhat
troubling because of the magnetic shifts that have been occurring on this
The geomagnetic poles have undeniably been moving, so much so
that airports have had to re-designate runway coordinates and adjust their GPS
instrumentation. I would hope that with this in mind, they have implemented
proper safeguards to account for this documented scientific anomaly.
In conclusion, it is very clear that a police state has descended
upon America. If you doubt that, you have not been paying attention.
The agenda for the New World Order
has been furthered tremendously in the last decade since 9/11, and even more so
in just the last year. NWO advocate Senator Jay Rockefeller
said the bill is "the best news
that the airline industry ever had. It will take us into a new era."
You have to seriously ask yourself... with only TWO incidents of
actual successful terrorist acts since 2000, why then is our government moving
so recklessly with such EXTREME measures to counter a threat that does not present
itself to us as on a daily, weekly, monthly, or even a yearly basis? How
does this make sense? We're going to put 30,000 drones in the air for a
George W. Bush absurdly said after 9/11 that the terrorists
hated us for our freedoms. It would appear to this reporter that it is
TPTB who truly hate our freedoms. Foreign terrorists did not
take our freedoms away. Our politicians and government officials have done that,
and they were able to do it because Americans were too f@#king lazy to pay attention to what
has been going on in this country.
We are the most overly entertained society the world has ever
known. There is a reason for that. If you keep watching the boob tube and
continue to ignore what our elected servants are doing to us all, pretty soon
you will be watching "Amerikan Idol" and "Goosestepping Mit Der
Stars." What is happening in America today is far worse than Nazi Germany.
Just because you still get to watch the idiot box and shop at Wal-Mart does not
mean that you are free.
Time to wake up America. It's time for all good men (and women)
to come to the aid of their country. While you still have the chance to do so.

There are at least 63 active
drone sites around the U.S, federal authorities have been forced
to reveal following a landmark Freedom of Information lawsuit.
The unmanned planes – some of
which may have been designed to kill terror suspects – are being
launched from locations in 20 states.
Most of the active drones are
deployed from military installations, enforcement agencies and
border patrol teams, according to the Federal Aviation
Authority. ... (Read
