What is the plan?

When you were not paying attention a couple of years ago. All analog TVs in North America ceased to exist. Your new flat screen TV is incapable of receiving an analog signal. Your local TV station is no longer able to broadcast one. Rabbit ears won't find a program. Everything is cable now, so what's the big deal?

No big deal except that one of the first steps to controlling a whole population is to control all information getting to them. If some nefarious government agency wants to control your every thought and action, it isn't that hard to do if they can manipulate the cable providers' output. By getting rid of the possibility of a television set receiving a signal through the air, they totally eliminate what could happen in a big crunch. 
What's a big crunch? It's when a shadow government finally makes itself known by an action, like a coup, and tells you what you are going to do and why it is good for your own protection. They use a Bogey man to scare you. Terrorists.
The government has been doing this since 9/11. (example of a prearranged message is the British newsgirl reporting on the fall of WT7 when it was still standing right behind her in the shot!) To keep the people safe, they say, against Saddam, and then Bin Laden, and now al Qaeda. Your own government, at this moment, is eavesdropping on every single email, telephone conversation and text message within North America under the pretense of keeping you safe. Anyone who pays attention might begin to wonder just who the terrorists really are.

If the whole of North America is in a turmoil, by that I mean a state of panic and perhaps Martial Law, maybe because of a false flag operation, there will be no one who could set up an independent broadcast to tell you what is really happening. You will be fed messages and images through your cable TV system to show you that there is nothing to worry about. And yes the web will be just like the TV information, controlled and directed by only a few cable service providers passing on prearranged news bulletins. 

For years now we have had Homeland Security monitoring the web, under the guise of preventing terrorism, to keep you safe. The Patriot Act forbids your ISP from even telling you that you have been targeted for surveillance! But every message sent within North America can be read and red-flagged by a government agency. And every TV could be fed a program intended to set your mind at ease while certain things happen.

So in the future scary world, there won't be a movie where the rebels set up their own broadcasts to urge the people to rise up against tyranny, because there will not be a TV set that could capture that signal. You will simply get a message through your cable provider that tells you to stay in your home until the terrorist threat is neutralized. There might be police patrolling with loudspeakers. Those ominous buzzing black choppers overhead, with thermal imaging cameras. Army personal with weapons on the street corners. Curfews. City passports. East Berlin mentality.

It is already known exactly who you are, what your political thoughts are, exactly what you look like, compliments of Facebook, and what color your front door is, compliments of Google Street View. (Which gives your latitude and longitude right now to minutes and seconds and elevation!) And it won't be a polite knock, it will be a swat-like team battering down your door and slinging you into a black van while your kids scream in terror. Kick and yell all you want, that is the image they want your neighbors to see and hear too. They'll stay nice and quiet while the thought dawns on them that it may be too late for them as well. Be nice lil' people and don't talk.

So now we have a new internet protocol shaping up, where the content will again be carefully monitored. Search words set off alarms now! To prevent terrorists from operating within Fortress America. You'll be safe. Go to work tomorrow. Be productive. Don't think. Delete your facebook account? Haha, way too late for that. With all the cross-referencing, they'll know exactly where to find you. Perhaps the only temporarily safe ones are those survivalists hiding in beaver lodges in the woods. And maybe a few gun advocates who have basements full of weapons and ammo.

But how long those gun folk can hold out and can they actually threaten authority? You saw it at Jonestown with the FBI raid. When they want you gone you'll be gone. No handgun or even a Bushmaster is a threat against Rocket Propelled Grenades and fire bombs. Yes, they are those same guys you hated because they wanted to retain their AK47s and AR15s. And all that practice the private contractors are doing in the Middle East with tactical weapons will come to the fore. Depleted uranium bullets disintegrate you. Cremation powder is all that remains. No DNA, no evidence you ever existed. Try searching 'depleted uranium' on YouTube and see what happens.
Blackwater  =  Xe  =  Academi

Who will take charge?  Blackwater who control a private army changed their name to Xe, then recently changed it again, to, would you believe, Academi. Woo. Less menacing, sort of sounds like a wholesome university group, how innocent they must be, yet the mercenaries charged with following whatever rules are in effect are no less scary. Blackwater was kicked out of Iraq for controversial killings of 17 civilians. You saw the start of their role in domestic society during Hurricane Katrina, when they prevented families escaping to safety at gunpoint. FEMA was in charge. Google that too.  Academi, as Blackwater or Xe, have provided more than 60 thousand protective missions around the world. And they don't ask questions first!

The only question remaining is if a shadow government stealth movement takes control of North American society without interference from real armed forces sworn to uphold the law, who will protect you? You saw how confusion reigned during 9/11. The greatest defense system the world has ever seen was totally overwhelmed by four small groups who stole airplanes and not a single air defense squadron lifted into the skies to protect you! 
Well I lied, it's not the only question remaining, there are thousands more, like why did the Social Security Administration order 750,000 rounds of hollow point bullets? And why does the Department of Homeland Security need 750 MILLION rounds of hollow points? One can only speculate what they are going to kill with that kind of lethal weaponry. (hollow point bullets kill because they expand and fragment within your body, tearing apart your organs) And I think a lot of law abiding policemen and honest US troops are wondering and trembling with the thought of exactly who they are to be used on?

The Second Amendment. The Right to Keep and Bear Arms, was meant as a final check for a government that grows out of control. Thomas Jefferson said it simply; "When governments fear the people, there is liberty. When the people fear the government, there is tyranny."

Will real police and army forces who respect the law and the US constitution actually attack or kill their own citizens? That remains to be seen, and may be the ultimate jigsaw piece. A new 'rebel alliance' may only have Ham radio or smoke signals to communicate. The original Minutemen are disbanded, the new ones are just old rednecks concerned with border sneaking Mexicans. 
Will you be heading to your neighbor's farm house for protection? Or into the hills? Can you trust the NRA? Who will be on your side?

Will you continue to scoff at the warnings or begin paying attention? Maybe you should be asking questions now? Is what you are being told good enough? There might be no later.

Meanwhile, you might want to check out Ted Nugent and force yourself to like him. Some think he won't want to be controlled either. He might be on your side. 

Worse still, you might WANT him on your side.

One more step toward slavery?

Not Just Buses, Street Lights Are Also Recording Conversations 
 Along with televisions, computers, cell phones and more 

Paul Joseph Watson 
December 11, 2012 

News that the government is set to expand the nationwide installation of surveillance bugs on buses that record conversations serves as a reminder that similar systems are also being readied for street lights, along with a host of other devices. “Government officials are quietly installing sophisticated audio surveillance systems on public buses across the country to eavesdrop on passengers, according to documents obtained by The Daily. 

Plans to implement the technology are under way in cities from San Francisco to Hartford, Conn., and Eugene, Ore., to Columbus, Ohio.” Michael Brick warns that the device will be able to, “transcribe the individual conversations of every passenger riding on a public bus,” at the behest of authorities adding that the DHS-funded project represents a horrendous affront to privacy laws. 
However, as we have previously documented, buses are by no means the only place where big brother will not only be watching, but listening too. 

As we first reported last year, high tech street lights with “homeland security applications” are now being installed in major U.S. cities. A press release put out by Amerlux earlier this year announced the company’s partnership with Illuminating Concepts to further advance the rollout of ‘Intellistreets’. 

Say again?
The announcement confirms that the street lights will have a number of “homeland security features” including a loudspeaker system that will be used to “engage captive audiences”. 
Not only can the street lights, now being rolled out in Detroit, Chicago and Pittsburgh with Department of Energy backing, act as surveillance cameras, Minority Report-style advertising hubs, and Homeland Security alert systems, they are “also capable of recording conversations,” according to a report by ABC 7. According to the companies behind the system, Intellistreets spying hubs that double as street lights are expected to “become commonplace” not only on regular streets but also for “retail malls, sports venues, on college campuses, and in new construction.” 

In addition to the Intellistreets system, gunshot detectors which have been installed in major cities for years are already recording public conversations.The ACLU responded by noting that, “It is not generally legal for law enforcement (or anyone else) to make audio recordings of conversations in which they are not a participant without a warrant.” Televisions, computers and cellphones are also set to utilize technology that records conversations in order to bombard users with invasive targeted advertising. 
Verizon recently followed Google’s lead and officially filed a patent for a set-top box that will actively spy on Americans in their own homes. 

In an article we published back in 2006, we highlighted the fact that, “Digital cable TV boxes, such as Scientific Atlanta, have had secret in-built microphones inside them since their inception in the late 1990′s.” App providers on the Android network also now require users to agree to a condition that, “Allows the app to record audio with the microphone,” on cellphones and other ‘smart’ devices. “This permission allows the app to record audio at any time without your confirmation,” states the text of the agreement. 

Virtually every new technological device now being manufactured that is linked to the Internet has the capability to record conversations and send them back to a central hub. Is it really any wonder therefore that former CIA director David Petraeus heralded the arrival of the “smart home” as a boon for “clandestine statecraft”? 

People are now willingly planting bugs on their own property with scant regard for basic privacy considerations, while the world around them is also being turned into a 24/7 surveillance grid that outstrips Orwell’s worst nightmare – all in the name of convenience, safety and security.

49 years and counting ...

It seems that even after this long long time it would be appropo to repost a couple of things about that infamous day in history. There are still a few reads you can research yourself. But even if you do, they still lead to nothing but even more questions about what actually happened that day in Dallas ..... 
from November 24, 2010

Today in History - November 24

Lee Harvey Oswald.
While the world was still reeling at the assassination of President John F. Kennedy, we saw the alleged perpetrator of the crime, caught and killed only two days later, and on national TV!
And these many years on we can only marvel at the speed with which his apprehension for the crimes happened. And the positive assertion that Oswald was undoubtedly the lone killer of Officer Tippit and Kennedy.
All these instant conclusions would be astounding even in todays era of nanosecond web communication. Yet over these years so many nagging doubts still evoke questions.

Oswald was supposed to have shot Kennedy from a 6th floor coign of vantage in the Texas Schoolbook Depository, with a Mannlicher-Carcano rifle. But first it was identified as a 7.65 Italian Mauser, by sherrifs and FBI Special Agents. Affidavits were signed. Then it became a 6.5 Carcano rifle. Why? Because the FBI discovered that Oswald HAD purchased a Carcano, but NOT a Mauser. And even other rifles are now mentioned. And it took a world class marksman from the Army to nearly duplicate the 3 shots in 4.5 second feat! Other trained US Marine snipers said it could not be done.
And an almost perfect bullet 'appeared' on the stretcher bearing the President's body. A bullet that went through TWO bodies. That looks as if the Lone Ranger put it there!

Oswald was even identified by someone who SAW him up there from across the street! Is that believeable today?

Oswald was supposedly seen being questioned by Tippit shortly after leaving his job and taking to the streets. Witnesses said they saw him shoot Tippit. They even saw him REloading his handgun while fleeing! Does that sound like a frightened killer? Yet other witnesses said another car pulled up, a man got out and shot Tippit and then roared away! Someone else saw two men who were NOT Oswald. Witnesses even identified a different assailant as heavy set, wearing a long overcoat. Many witnesses claimed intimidations and threats about their testimonys. Several eye-witnesses died soon after.
The Warren Commission ignored most of it.

And what was Officer Tippit up to on the hour before he died? Why was he far out of his patrol area? Why did he suddenly rush to 10th Street and stop to make a phone call in a cafe but only listened and said nothing? Why did he seem panicked when he made the call? He left his car radio at a crucial time. Then he was seen cruising very slowly. Why was Tippit known in the area he died in? Some witnesses thought he lived nearby. But it was miles from his patrol area and his home?

How did anyone know Oswald's path of exit? Was it coincidence? Happenstance? Or enemy action? Officer Tippit was directed exactly where to go, minutes after the murder. Then radioed back when he was in position. Why was Tippit directed to 10th St? Was he? The Dallas police lieutenant who may have directed Tippit that day, Harry Dean Thomas, married his widow three years later.
The shells from the shooting were gathered by policeman, J.M. Poe, and he marked them with his initials, however the shell casings eventually entered into evidence had no such markings.

Oswald went to his rooming house first. Who were the two policemen who stopped in front, gave two horn honks and went away? Then he went to a movie theatre. Why did he go there instead of staying on a bus and getting far away? Was he under a prearranged instruction to go to that theatre? Part of a plan to have him where someone wanted him? Did someone give him a revolver there? Perhaps the very revolver just used to kill Tippit? Perhaps by the very person who DID kill Tippit? The revolver in his possession was fully loaded with no empty chambers. And he had no additional ammunition with him. So if Oswald shot Tippit four times, and REloaded, then he must have had only had four extra bullets with him? Seems too odd, doesn't it? And four cartridge cases were found lying on the ground near the scene of the murder. Did the killer open the chamber of his gun and manually ejected the cases? Instead of immediately fleeing the scene of the crime, did he deliberately stop and discarded four vital pieces of evidence that could have been used against him? The four cartridge cases were traced to Oswald's revolver, although they were never matched to the bullets.

Oswald was constant in his claim that he was a patsy. He was innocent. He never shot anybody. And more than one scholar who has gone through the whole case has said the Mexico and Soviet Union implications could have easily pointed to Oswald being a CIA spy.
Alas, all these years later we are still suspicious, yet nowhere near advanced in our factuals about how it happened. The circumstances seem just too complex. The evidence now too scattered. Diffused. Lost. Misinformation and disinformation. Indeed, but we have more questions than ever.
His actions seem to be a response to suddenly realizing he had been set up. Confusion, desperation, the compounding of events leading him to take a predetermined escape route as his only hope. A route designed by who?

Lee Harvey Oswald was never actually charged with killing the Presdient.


and from September 27, 2011

This day in history - - - September 27

(1963 – 64) The Warren Commission. A group appointed by Pres. Lyndon B. Johnson to investigate the circumstances surrounding President John F. Kennedy's slaying and the shooting of his (alleged) assassin, Lee Harvey Oswald. It was chaired by Earl Warren and included two U.S. senators, two U.S. congressmen, and two former public officials.
After months of investigation, it reported that Kennedy was killed by Oswald's rifle shots from the Texas School Book Depository and that Oswald's murder by Jack Ruby two days later was not part of a conspiracy to assassinate Kennedy.
Its findings were later questioned in a number of books and articles and in a special congressional committee report in 1979, though no conclusive contradictory evidence was found.
JD Tippit

One of those first books, Rush to Judgment, by lawyer Mark Lane, pointed out that the conclusions in the Summery, those few pages that most people and reporters read, had little to do with the volumes of actual evidence in the content.
Today a believer of this, 'Oswald alone', conclusion is rare. And because that summery seemed falsified, it berthed a lifetime of conspiracy theories about the President's death.
Even following the interesting side story of the trail of Officer Tippit on that day and you might join the legions of disbelievers.

The members of that Warren Commission were -

- Earl Warren - Chief Justice of the United States. Eisenhower offered Warren the post of solicitor general, with the promise of a seat on the Supreme Court. But before it was announced, Chief Justice Fred M. Vinson unexpectedly died in September 1953 and Eisenhower replaced him with Warren. As Chief Justice of the United States some said many of his decisions were 'inappropriate'.

- Hale Boggs - Died mysteriously in a plane crash while flying over remote Alaska in October, 1972 . Wreckage never found. In April 1971 he had made a speech on the floor of the House in which he strongly attacked J. Edgar Hoover and the whole of the FBI.

- Gerald Ford - Future President. Ford commented in his own report that the CIA destroyed or kept from investigators critical secrets connected to the assassination.

- John Sherman Cooper - In the general election in 1954 Cooper was defeated by Alben W. Barkley a Democrat who had been Vice President under Harry S. Truman but Barkley subsequently died, and Cooper was elected to fill his unexpired term in 1956.

- John J. McCloy - He was initially skeptical of the lone gunman theory, but a trip to Dallas with Allen Dulles, an old friend also serving on the Commission, in the spring of 1964 to visit the scene of the assassination convinced him of the case against Lee Harvey Oswald.

- Allen Welsh Dulles - Director of the CIA. It evolved under his directorship into a team of assassins. One member, Frank Sturgis, claimed: "this assassination group (Operation 40) would upon orders, naturally, assassinate either members of the military or the political parties of the foreign country that you were going to infiltrate, and if necessary some of your own members." (Sturgis was also one of the Watergate burglars) Dulles and his staff were forced to resign in September 1961 when President Kennedy reportedly said he wanted to "splinter the CIA into a thousand pieces and scatter it into the winds."

The Warren report's lack of candor furthered antigovernment cynicism, which in turn stimulated conspiracy theorists who propounded any number of alternative scenarios, all mutually contradictory, and all going strong today.

Who can you trust?

In a new revelation by Jackie Kennedy she recently revealed her suspicions of LBJ. And we all know she married Ari Onassis simply because he was the one man in the world who could actually protect her from an 'unexpected' and mysterious death. 

 .... back to today ....

And an even more recent revelation suggests that Jackie Kennedy/Onassis recorded several tapes before she died. And they are somewhere. Waiting to be revealed. It is further proposed by some researchers, that Oswald was a paid asset of the FBI.
Arlen Specter, (later a Senator) was assistant counsel to the Warren Commission (recommended by Gerald Ford) and came up with the single bullet theory, which was readily adopted because having Connally and Kennedy shot by two separate bullets in such a short time frame would indicate TWO assassins and a conspiracy! Convenient, huh? Why did Specter miss so many obvious followup questions to the witnesses?  
More questions.
In recent years, there have been suggestions that some secret sponsored shadow cell has plans for a coup d'etat of the American Government, even that 9/11 may have been the precursor.

And there are also those who also believe the coup was already accomplished on November 22, 1963!

But just investigating the one aspect of Officer Tippit is an interesting exercise and takes you well away from the 49 years of spin and cover up about JFK. Go ahead, try it. At the very least you'll have a fascinating read, way better than TV fiction. And you'll involve yourself in history.

start here - - -
                                 Dallas Police Officer JD Tippit

                                 Officer Tippit timeline
                                 JD Tippit homepage

                                 Officer Tippit's autopsy
                                 James Garrison Playboy interview

Follow the fascinating timeline and perhaps you will come up with more questions too: like why did the Davis sisters believe he lived in the nearby apartment house? Who DID live there to cause Tippit to be there often? Why was he speeding around frantically in the minutes after JFK was shot? Was he supposed to intercept Oswald? Why was he on West 10th Street when he was thought to be miles away at the Dealey Plaza by the overpass? How many contradictions may already be within the transcripts of accounts, interviews and events? Is there one somewhere, just waiting for a new eye to find it? Is there one sentence somewhere that says, 'This cannot be, therefore that must be?' 

They can't hide ALL the trails leading to truth. We finally learned the identity of deepthroat, anything can still happen.

And one thing about a coup d'etat, they don't all reveal themselves in a momentary flash through smoke and fire and violence ... they can emerge in stealth over many years. 

(Thanks to people like William M. Drenas  [Tippit Timeline],  for never exhausting their efforts in the search for truth)
(my own interest in JFK goes way back to the sixties when James Garrison, New Orleans District Attorney announced his intention of laying charges in the assassination and he replied to a note I sent to him with several ideas, thanking me for my interest and communication.)

Lies or spies?

General John Allen and Jill Kelley are communicating through 30,000 THOUSAND emails. Now that is WAY more than a guy can send to his mistress even over two years! That is about 41 emails a DAY!  Maybe forty-one on the first day after he met her and they were still enthralled, (she IS a great looking woman) but they would slow down from there! Wouldn't they?

General David Petraeus' biographer, Paula Broadwell, (also a pretty good looker) somehow gets jealous of Jill Kelley and sends threatening emails to her. Jill, who is well connected,  tells an FBI friend. And it goes from there. Why would Paula be jealous of Jill? Were David and John both plunking Jill Kelley? She is married by the way. So are the two Generals. How did he or she or they have the TIME to read all that traffic?

So, if you think like I do. Those 30  thousand (flirtatious) emails sound like an information dump to me. Like someone who has access to Allen's computer and sends whenever they can. In MY mind, I imagine Jill slept with John, and when he fell asleep in his spent bliss, she accessed his computer and copied a folder or two by emailing the contents to herself! I think I just saw that on a Get Smart TV episode.

Or if you look at this like a spy novel, don't laugh, that's not a stretch considering this is a top echelon scandal, Jill Kelley could be a Lebanese spy who got John Allen into bed. Meanwhile David and Paula are hot and heavy while she writes about how wonderful he is. David had Paula and was probably running himself ragged, what with plunking her, plus the obligatory plunking of the real wife, running the Afghanistan war and becoming head of the CIA! OMG! WTF? He'd be generally worn down. And now Paula thinks Jill is horning in? 

EVERYBODY in Washington says a military guy should never be running the CIA anyhow! And isn't Petraeus a George Bush man? And wouldn't Jill Kelley being Lebanese with ties to the Middle East raise eyebrows among Allen or Petraeus' staff? Jill Kelley has Consular plates! And claims diplomatic immunity! Did General Allen arrange all that? Wow. Mata Hari over again?

So this FBI agent guy, who Jill contacted when the threatening emails from Paula started alerts his superiors. But they don't respond. Why? So he goes over their heads because maybe he thinks this is too serious and his own people are going to quash it or cover it up. Which the FBI is wont to do with scandal. (Not all of us have forgotten Hoover's cross dressing image) But why would the FBI cover it up? Not to protect the integrity of Generals. Or the public images of military men. Because the FBI LOVES having secret and dirty stuff on Generals! Always hugely useful when dealing with the CIA as a competitive agency. With their chief now being Petraeus.

So FBI guy, to keep it going and to give people like ME the idea, sends his semi-naked pic to Jill to give us an idea of what she really is? A Pentagon Prostitute and spy for whomever foreign government? Incredible but these are the influential powerful, nothing they do is incredible! Eric Canter, the Republican Senator who is going for the 2016 Presidential nomination, is contacted and thinks this'll be great for that future. And now Dianne Feinstein, of the Intelligence Committee is furious for not being informed. It is exploding exponentially!
  • So what did Paula Broadwell know about Jill Kelley that she would be agitated about? 
  • What did she know about Jill and General John Allen? 
  • Did David Petraeus know about Allen's affair? 
  • Why are Jill Kelley and her husband involved with the military elite socially? 
  • What is their background? And where do they get all that money for the parties?
  • Why would Kelley assist the South Korean consulate with passports etc while not being an employee?  
  • Why would Jill's sister Natalie Khawam's custody battle be of interest to two of the top Generals of the United States Military? 
  • Would you agree that Petraeus and Allen would have to be juicy targets for foreign intelligence?
Isn't this fun so far? And listen to this; Natalie's husband, Grayson Wolfe, was the Director of Broader Middle East Initiatives and Iraqi Reconstruction and Special Assistant to the Chief Operating Officer at the Export - Import Bank of the United States. He was appointed to the bank by President Bush. We all know the Bush family is like best friends with Middle East Arab families?

This is shaping up to be way better than the British Profumo Affair and the Christine Keeler scandal. Don't we love this stuff? Would you like more tea? It's Earl Grey. This might be more fun if it wasn't so friggin serious.
Like doesn't this make you wonder how the most security conscious nation on Earth can be so naive and lax in it's own house? Unless of course all that suspicion and security is aimed at it's own people and they just don't see the big picture anymore. Remember that the 9/11 flyers took their lessons at American flying schools without raising an eyebrow. No take-off, no land, just point. And nobody said WTF!?

Seems like a couple of these guys guarding the hen house fell asleep in the soft feathery arms of the Hens. And now we are asking, Who's the fox? And it is getting mind boggling. The explosion will take days to read. 

Of course this is all alleged. 
So far.

Get back at them!

November 9, 2012 - by Phil Tucker - from

The Dragonfly puts all other flying toys to shame.

A new robotic dragonfly from Georgia Tech can hover, dive, climb, and fly like a real insect.

Meet the TechJect Dragonfly a remote control robotic insect that, as its name suggests, looks akin to and can fly like a real insect. Researchers at Georgia Tech’s Robotics & Intelligent Machines (RIM) Department have been hard at work making this science fiction inspired device a reality.

“The TechJect Dragonfly is a wifi-enabled, super-small, smart and energy efficient robotic insect; it can do amazing aerial photography, aerobatic maneuvers for gaming, autonomous patrolling for security and surveillance, and much more. With up to 20 sensors onboard, the Dragonfly is the most advanced and compact flying platform out there.” -TechJect
TechJect suggests there’s no shortage of uses for the Dragonfly, from aerial photography and gaming to home security and spying. With a platform that boasts GPS capabilities, streaming video and 20 onboard sensors, I’m inclined to agree, the applications are almost limitless.
After receiving a $1,000,000 grant from the US Air Force, the team, including Dr. Jayant Ratti and Emanuel Jones, has built a number of prototypes and is now working to bring a consumer version to market under the spin-off company TechJect. Through their Indigogo page you can support the project and secure your very own remote control Dragonfly for all of your espionage needs.

Indigogo is a popular crowdfunding site where the public can lend monetary support to projects in exchange for various rewards. In the case of the Dragonfly, a contribution of $99 (sold out at the moment) will catch you an Alpha Dragonfly — the perfect package for a budding robo-etymologist. On the other hand if you’re looking to start your own swarm, contributing $949 will see some 17 Dragonflies come under your command. The campaign also offers a variety of Dragonfly-based rewards between these two contribution levels — act fast though, the TechJect Dragonfly has already raised almost $100,000 of its $110,000 goal.

The recent innovations in remote controlled flight have been impressive to say the least; the last decade has seen the realization of toy helicopters that fit comfortably in the palm of your hand, quadrotors that are able to perform stunning complex choreography and lethal military drones controlled from countless miles away. 


Isn't it comforting to see how the technology filters down to the masses?  Now do you believe my previous post?  At last, we may be able to keep ourselves safe from those who say they are keeping us safe. You can even fly these with your Smartphone! 
(See post of Friday, July 27, 2012 -  Bug Off MAV!)
Thanks to Phil Tucker for putting this together.

Conspiracy or not?

We all know that any conspiracy is hidden from view long before it emerges as fact or a stealthy pre-action. Only the few who happen to think of furtive plans, bring light to the darkness. Correct or not.
So is this a conspiracy?

In the Presidential election. Romney might be in trouble despite that the right wing media constantly tries to cast him as a competent leader. There seems to me to be three divisions within the Republican party; the Tea Party types, the ones making all those asinine comments like Donald Trump going after birth certificate and college records of Obama after four years in, only to make an ass of himself. Yet Mitt Romney just won't reveal those income tax records. 

Then they have the Religious Right, full of those who interpret everything their own way, including that they believe God works on their behalf. With insane statements like God wants women to bear rape resulting babies! 

But there is the most dangerous element of the Republicans, those who want to take over the world. And they are just being ominously quiet right now. George HW Bush laid the groundwork during his presidency. And previously as Vice-President and Director of the Central Intelligence Agency. His son, President George W Bush and his ever-hovering watchdog Dick Cheney continued remaking that infrastructure. 
So what IS the plan? 
To get a third Bush as President of the United States.

The knock on Romney has been people are saying his companies send jobs to Asia, and he hides his wealth in the Grand Cayman Islands. A well established banking and business and investment capital famous for hiding money from prying government and tax collecting eyes. This has been talked over so much so that even the mention of the Caymans, means Mitt Romney.
And although the current Republican campaign has no interest in former President GW Bush's support at all, (which should tell you something about the division within) the Democrats continue to exploit the popular Bill Clinton. What does all this mean?

Well we now have former President George W Bush, giving a speech in the Caymans, under lock and key to only a few business people. At an 'investment conference'. NO journalists were allowed to attend or even get into the Ritz-Carlton hotel. The keynote speech by the former president was totally closed to all journalists and conference organizers were forbidden from discussing any aspect of it even in general terms! The whole process smacks of Bilderberg meetings and points to a comparison to Romney's secrets.. 
Does the very fact that Bush chose the Caymans to talk have this meaning?
What could the plan possibly be?

If Romney loses. Good for Bush people. And by speaking from the very base of Romney's money, isn't that driving home the idea of why there is no tax return information? If Romney was to go ahead and win the election, it might twist the future of Republican presidential candidates in a totally new direction. 
But if they could be sure Romney would lose, and they can do without the presidency for four years, it will be much easier to engineer another Bush into position to contest the 2016 campaign.  (perhaps taking a page from Canada's Liberal Party; go ahead and put in an English leader who is certain to lose so we can get back to a French-Canadian leader next time)

It is suggested that the campaign for 2016 has already begun. Many pundits including Jon Stewart are already posting Road to Jeb Bush, 2016  banners. And by allowing people like Trump, Anne Coulter, Rush Limbaugh and Michele Bachman to voice their ludicrous speeches now, they only contrast those loonies with Bush and seem to present a real serious alternative. Yelling and screaming only gets immediate responsive and perhaps impulsive action, the design of stealth assures delayed and controlled action. Using stealth implies a thoughtful agenda for the future. And the Bushes totally understand the concept of long distance planning.
A stealthy thoughtful insidious plan for a designed future private action IS conspiracy!

The only question is whether it will be Jeb Bush or a surprise Marvin Bush in 2016.  
And there are plenty more Bushes where these come from. 

Enjoy the election but stay tuned for the real one four years from now. 
Then watch the seeding.

Apple emerging as an arm of the FBI?

We all know now that the system installed in Apple iPhones called SIRI is suspect by a number of organizations, including IBM which has banned it from their networks. The reason? Siri ships everything you say to Her to a data center in Maiden, North Carolina. And the story of what really happens to all of your Siri launched searches, email messages and inappropriate jokes disappears into a virtual black box. With your reality name on it. 

Apple's iPhone Software Licence Agreement spells this out: "When you use Siri or Dictation, the things you say will be recorded and sent to Apple in order to convert what you say into text." Siri collects a bunch of other information too; names of people from your address book and other unspecified user data, all to help Siri do a better job. How long does Apple store this now plain-text information? And who gets a look at it? 

The company doesn't actually say. But again, from the user agreement: "By using Siri or Dictation, you agree and consent to Apple's and its subsidiaries' and agents' transmission, collection, maintenance, processing, and use of this information, including your voice input and User Data, to provide and improve Siri, Dictation, and other Apple products and services."  Subsidiaries and Agents? Who ARE these agents? The DEA? NSA? CIA? FBI? Homeland Security? Fema? Private corporations? Your high-tech brother-in-law?

Well, if I am paranoid then so are a lot of other legitimate companies in the technology business besides IBM.  
Because some of the data that Siri collects can be very personal, the American Civil Liberties Union put out a warning about Siri just a couple of months ago. For corporate users, there are even more potential pitfalls, like having it known that you're at a certain customer's location might be in violation of a non-disclosure agreement, and of interest to spying competitors. Or your boss. Or anyone else who happens to perk and have interest in where you go and what you do there.
So if you are telling Siri where you want to go, your iPhone is not only storing that info, but the GPS info showing how you got there and how long you stayed!

Now a BC woman is suing Apple because she says the installed GPS system tracks you even when your iPhone is turned OFF! Then it updates periodically and sends that info to Apple including where you have been!  You can be back-tracked from D to C to B to A!
Your iPhone 4 contains location data, going back approximately one year, which is now easily accessible using free tools readily available on the internet. And it is revealed that a simple black box which fits into an attache case, can access all this info to track you exactly. By masquerading and behaving as a cell tower. It doesn't even have to ask you for it, your phone sends it automatically! The police are already using this technology but it is available to anyone! 

Well now the, I've got nothing to hide, wigglies come out. I've done nothing wrong, they argue, laughing at your paranoia. But perhaps they haven't been exposed to an zealous investigator who only needs to know YOU attended that same Bible Camp that John Wayne Gacy went to or coached childrens' football in Pennsylvania, or sent a humorous email message through Siri about marijuana to your friend who smokes it but you don't. And that friend happened to be in Mexico when you sent the joke! Perk!

This doesn't mean that Google, Samsung, Microsoft et al aren't building in the same technology to their systems and that your ISP isn't telling on you. But it means the technology is there to listen, record geographic co-ordinates and the time stamp to track everything you do, have done, when you done it and even anticipate what you MIGHT do. Yes, that techno is coming too.

It might mean that you shouldn't visit that favorite used book store anymore, because of the Mexican drug dealer hanging in the next doorway, and that the store is now run by an Iranian immigrant, and you'd better not be carrying your iPhone when you go there. Not to mention the fact that if you're reading a real life paper-paged book that doesn't let them know what you are reading is suspicious already!  A SWAT team could crash in as soon as you pick up that antique issue of Lady Chatterly's Lover.  

OMG, the scandal of it all. Drugs, foreign intrigue with terror implications, secretive actions and sex too!

And now you're in GITMO still dazed and shackled, dressed in orange while the interrogators try to figure out the jargon codes used in your iPhone transmission when your wife asked you to bring the 'bread' home.

There's no 'bored' in waterboard.

The demise of CNN News.

CNN recently announced that it might be having a reality show on their network.
You know about reality shows. They are when you get actors who are great at improv, to provide conflict over every inane idea for an hour. Whether it is entertainment is debatable. Whether it is fit for CNN is another thing.  Keeping Up With the Kardashians being a perfect example but these no-brainer reality shows now include all those Picker and Auction sites, Hog Catchers in the backwoods, and even the Food Networks are now fighting over how to boil water! Julia Childs please don't cry. They also include The Bachelor, The Biggest Loser and Jersey Shore! And now we even have Here Comes Honey Boo Boo. Don't laugh, it is all part of the dumbing down of the American public. (and that's a whole nuther conspiracy theory)
Is this sad or what?

Didn't we all rush to our TVs and tune in CNN when important events had breaking news? We watched live, the demise of the Soviet Union. The fall of the Berlin Wall. Knocking down Saddam's statue. The miner rescues in Chile. And a hundred other happening events that were full of drama and excitement and truthful images. And a reality so full of excitement no script could ever match it!

Not anymore. I recently saw Wolf Blitzer making an argument for his point of view about Libya last week, while frustratingly interrupting the input of his guest, who finally irritatedly announced that Wolfe could argue the point all he wanted to, but his opinion didn't alter the facts of what was actually happening on the ground.
Alas, the days of Peter Arnett and Bernard Shaw reporting objectively from the heart of the battle are gone. Who can forget that eerie green footage of combat? And of course we don't know what is happening 'on the ground' anywhere now because we no longer have reports from the action. Or any battlefield or city of turmoil. The whole event is now stage managed. Film clips, sound bites and photo ops.

A friend on the weekend suggested it was Piers Morgan who started the slide of CNN into news gathering oblivion. I think not. But his background as a tabloid editor did not enhance the CNN aura for hard news.
I believe it is the US Government who forced the demise of real reporting when the Pentagon came up with the idea of 'embedded' reporters.

Embedded reporters are those who travel with a war unit into armed conflicts. They are controlled totally on what they can show on camera, where they are allowed to go, and what they can say in that contrived report that flashes to their TV Station for the 6 oclock news. Of course the Army tells them they need to be 'protected' for their own safety. Sort of in the way YOU are being protected by those drones flying overhead and watching everything you do .... for your own safety. Sure.

The 1991 Gulf War was influential in the implementation of controlling reporters. And Reuters News and other legitimate news agencies had many free ranging reporters in Iraq. At my last count there have been about 130 independent reporters mysteriously killed by 'friendly fire.' Not hard to do when a firefight is happening and paid mercenaries are shooting at anything you tell them to. 
Sort of like Vietnam and 'fragging' your own lieutenant.
In those days the news was 'adjusted' through every step up from the combat private who thought he might have killed one Viet Cong to the General who sent a dispatch to President Johnson announcing the death of 500 enemy and one wounded Marine! All the same story.

During the Iraq war in 2003, there were almost 800 embedded journalists! These reporters actually sign contracts with the military on what they will divulge. I did see a woman reporter a while ago. Broadcasting from a battlefield. There was a stone wall she was behind, and she sort of winced at any loud noises, as if being under attack. They even had two Afghans behind her, peering into the distance from behind that wall. Trouble was they were chatting and laughing and playing with their Kalashnikovs while she did some pretty good acting. She was an embedded reporter.

No way they want free style reporters wandering around in the theater of war digging out news. Or the truth of what is actually happening. It is all theater now. That's why you no longer see Michael Ware on CNN, and not much of Nic Robertson. Some reporters even had their credentials and ability to travel freely curtailed because they showed a Humvee riddled with bullet-holes! No way they want the American public to know that the enemy can target and hit our guys too!

So with real news being totally manipulated and spoon fed to the masses. There is no need to see what really happened. It's good enough to know that the good guys are winning.

What is CNN to do? So why not have reality shows on CNN? After all it is about making money isn't it? It's TV, even fake is reality.
Is the demise of CNN the demise of news and truth?

Ted Turner moved on, I guess we have to too.

Details at eleven. We're creating them now.

What's up?

Canada has closed and shuttered it's embassy in Tehran. And then expelled all Iranian diplomats from Canada, under the premise that Iran is a state sponsor of terrorism. The Federal Government has issued a travel warning to Canadians, urging them to stay away from that country.
Foreign Affairs Minister John Baird made the moves Friday morning, declaring Iran "the most significant threat to global peace and security in the world today."

Have you noticed unusual happenings related to Iran lately? I mean unusual within the constant turmoil of these countries? Nor have I, except the regular ongoing condemnation by the West of suspicious nuclear research. 
So it leads me to wonder, why right now?

Is this the result of CSIS having some evidence of ex-pat Iranians up to spying activities in Canada? Usually those kinds of mole discoveries result in expelling a certain few 'diplomats' from a country, never actually closing an embassy in the other country. And they are mostly accompanied by lots of publicity, showing off the prowess of our protective spy agencies.
So what's up?

Or could Canada have received some information from the US CIA that is a precursor of an action that could harm Canadians? Perhaps a military strike is imminent? A bombing raid that could put Canadians at risk? And if the USA wants Canada's support wouldn't they subtly advise us to get the hell out so we have nothing to bitch about? 
The US has had no embassy in Tehran since 1981. After their hostage situation and the Canadian embassy smuggling Americans out. Britain closed theirs last November.
They didn't have the credibility of Canada and many other cool thinking countries in the Iraq war. But that was a war of personal vengeance by George Bush. They should be able to twist a new Iran war into a more noble cause: nuclear proliferation and global peace. 

Or did the Israeli Mossad, after many disagreements with the US over the imminent danger, decide to go it alone and so warn the Canadians?

Or is it about oil? As are so many furtive movements and motives in the Middle East?

Israeli Air Force F16ls
The Israelis have been itching to be let go to send in a couple of planes to put Iran out of the nuclear bomb business. They did it before, in 1981 and 2007. They are ready willing and able but they do want USA support. And wouldn't the US and Israel like to have a little muscle flexing in the area because Egypt seems to be getting a bit fresh and impudent?
And to do an action against Iran in the immediate future, would mean they have all those troops already stationed in Iraq, on the verge of leaving for home. To redeploy a threat force later would be costly. So why not go now?

There is no telling exactly how close Iran is to testing a real nuclear bomb. Once that is done, the newest member of the Destruction Club only needs to screw one onto the tip of a missile capable of hitting Tel Aviv. Presto, new war.
And Iran is accused of helping Syria right now. When the West is trying to neutralize threats to vulnerable Iraq so they can leave with some sense of accomplishment. (One can't help thinking that if they had left Saddam Hussein in place none of this would be necessary.)

President Obama, in his nomination acceptance speech, said the USA was still committed to a free Israel. Is the US getting ready for a preemptive strike? Why is Canada taking this action now? 

Somebody knows something.
What's up?

California Prop 37 - be aware folks

Proposition 37, known as the California Right to Know Genetically Engineered Food Act, will require that all foods made with or containing GMOs, including both raw and processed foods, be labeled as such when sold at the retail level.
Sounds totally proper and sane, right?

Well, not according to certain big businesses like Monsanto corporation, and Pepsico, and Dupont, and Dow Agrosciences, Nestle, CocaCola, Kelloggs, Hersey, Hormel etc. These and many other companies have to date, donated 25 million to DEFEAT the initiative for honest food labeling.
Thousand of mothers and grandmothers are trying to fight back against this onslaught of monetary influence to keep the US public unaware of what is in their food!

If Prop 37 is passed, products made with or containing GMOs will also be prohibited from being marketed and sold as “natural,” a highly-deceptive practice that has become quite common today. Of course any reasonable human being worried about their food consumption, sees that as ridiculous.
(In Canada we have this very stupid rule that even food products imported from third world countries without any health safety rules can be imported, repackaged and labeled as 'Produce of Canada' just because they are repackaged in Canada.)
Nearly 50 other countries, including China, Russia, and all the countries in the European Union (EU), currently label GMOs. The U.S. and Canada are among the only developed nations in the world that do not require honest food labeling.
The passage of Prop. 37 on November 6, however, could change this and much of the rest of the U.S. (and Canada?) will likely follow in its footsteps in the coming months and years, which has the potential to unhinge the corporate monopoly that currently controls the American food supply.

You need to pay attention folks. Transparency and honesty in food labeling is important to your family's future.
Do you really want to see your sons and daughters or grandchildren grow up with odd ball idiosyncrasies and distorted shapes? There is already a phenomenon in Florida known as 'big head syndrome' because children there grow up consuming artificial antibiotics and growth hormones in everything they eat!

Evolution of the human species is one thing, but meddling with the human genome is yet another.

Pull for the humans and pay attention.

Bug off, MAV!

Well we warned you. Drones are no longer just used in Afghanistan to search out al Qaeda terrorists, they are now actually patrolling neighborhoods to rout out whatever is deemed as bad behavior today or tomorrow. And they're not just tasked and operated by the military, local police forces are using them. And they are not just just floating past and looking at you, their cameras are now recording whatever you are doing in your own backward, or whatever they can see through your bedroom window!
MQ-9 Reaper drone
And what is worse, they can and are being equipped with sensors and even weapons! HERFs, High Energy Radio Frequency weapons. And they can even smell drugs on you! Predator drones can circle two miles up and watch you! Reassuring, huh?

But of course, the usual spin line invoked by police when asked to discuss these drones is; they are here to keep you safe. We all know about that one. 

But look, the drones are getting smaller, and they don't need to fly past overhead any more. They can simply hover outside your window and look in.
Mikrokopter drone
But you have the shades drawn, you say? Haven't you heard of thermal imaging? They can see a nicely delineated image of you and your wife doing ....THAT! Are you sure that is legal? Even among consenting adults? Better reread those obscure laws, they are left on the books for a reason you know. A nice video and audio recording is evidence that you broke the Washington DC law that anything beyond missionary sex is illegal, as is oral sex in Indiana, and lookout if you have a live fish in there with you in Minnesota!  Nice to know you are being protected. And don't think you'll see that little critter peering in, those cameras are perfectly clear operating at very high altitudes. The technology to read golf ball writing from space has been available since the 1970s so a hovering lil drone looking into your home doesn't have to be within your view to see. And here's the best part, even you can own one for only about $7000! With a GoPro Hero professional videography camera. And that includes a free flying lesson! Wow, check out that hot new housewife two doors up the street!

But that's not all ..... this is what's coming. MAVs!
real mosquito
Yes, small is good. Smaller even better. Teeny the best. Look what's packed into your smartphone. And now look whats packed into a mechanical insect!

They now have teeny weeny flying robots, called Micro Aerial Vehicles that are no bigger than a mosquito. These lil flyers don't carry the West Nile Virus or malaria, they are much more deadly than that. 
If you are up on things like this,  you may know that DARPA, the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency had a pretend Hummingbird mechanical flying device, but those are way too big now. Outdated. Old tech.

pretend mosquito
These new tech lil' MAV buggers can fly in your open window at night, they are remotely controlled and are equipped with a camera and microphone. Or they can attach themselves onto your clothing and come into your home with you or land on your arm and aid in tracking you by leaving RFID nanotechnology on your skin! Or even take a sample of your blood, just like a real mosquito, except these robotic ones don't get high on the blood, like a micro-mini vampire, they just send the DNA data along to whomever.You'd think they'd make them look like cute little red ladybugs so you wouldn't want to swat them.

Mind you, they are designed for 'search and rescue' operations, and MAVs would be used for military reconnaissance operations in urban areas, where densely packed buildings are a problem. Sure. Or like inside your house rooms or office complex. All this funded by the US Government and the US Air Force! Of course the police and military are not supposed to ally in the use of drones to observe civilians, but a sheriff called one in to help arrest three cow thieves in North Dakota. And all to 'protect' you of course, against those bad people.Yes, cow thieves.

The military's interest in cutting edge urban combat technologies is not new. In an eerily prescient 1999 report by the Foreign Military Studies Office, researchers noted that the frequency and scale of urban combat is likely to increase.  (see the Last Hope post below) Yes urban combat is on the rise, and seems to be directly proportional to the technology used against the people.
The bug war is on, you may be the target, and Raid won't work.

You might want to arm yourself by carrying a fly swatter around with you.

Advanced technology doesn't win everything.

Last Hope

The Federal Reserve is cheating the people by mysteriously losing 9 trillion dollars of taxpayer money. President Bush cheated the people by starting fictitious wars. Obama cheats the people by being weak against insidious corporations. Cheney cheated the people by ignoring the US Constitution. Republicans and Democrats alike cheat the people. The Shadow Government cheats the people. Big banking is cheating the people. Military planners are cheating the people. Private para-military armies can`t wait to start cheating the people. Pharmaceutical Corporations are cheating the people with pills that don't work. Big agro is cheating the people by engineering Frankenfood. Hospitals cheat the people. Developers cheat us. Mainstream Media is cheating the people by allowing truth to be manipulated.

The government is now surveilling us from many angles. Every email, every telephone message is read or heard by someone, and if certain keywords are present, will be identified as from YOU. Apple sends your voice mail to a data center in North Carolina for conversion to text and retains a copy for Homeland Security. Microsoft is starting to send everything you save to their `cloud` for safekeeping, except from those who want to see exactly what you save. And you can't encrypt your data. Facebook allows federal police to cross reference all your info. Police are beginning to use drones to fly over and watch your homes and neighborhoods, now armed with specialized sensors and weapons.

Of course they are doing all this with good reason. It is known that certain people in the world have decided, rightly or wrongly, that 6 billion (latest fact - 7 billion) in our world is 5.5 billion too many. That's too many people who are stretching the world`s resources too far. 500 million would be the optimum amount of people for sustainability.

How do we take down this overbalance of humanity? Wars are good. Famine is good, if a bit heartbreaking. Disease is good, if controlled. Natural disasters are great if they can be targeted to specific areas of heavy population. Assuming any of this will become possible, and it takes out huge portions of a populace only clinging to a meagre life anyway, what about the remainder. What about going a little further?

I'm talking about North America now.
Will someone decide on a series of culls of delineated people? Say anyone who can't control their weight and simply is known to eat too much? We can't afford to feed the greed of these waddlers. Dope smokers who won't get jobs will disappear, subjects of a dope sniffing drone that fires a laser which follows the pot contaminated air right into the windpipe of the inhaler! Fried! Cigarette smokers won't be tolerated because of their eventual hospital costs. Bitchers and complainers need to go too. No one wants to hear it day in and day out. Yes, naturally certain political beliefs have to go. There will be no room for a Rhinoceros Party even in a casual democracy. Criminals will have no mercy in Future World. Who wants to waste valuable time with courts and justice systems when the perp walked out of the store with a gun and a bag of money? You say the Bloods and Cripps and Columbian drug traffickers are resident in that building? Whoosh! The building is gassed to kill everything in it. Solved; an irritant to the Plan. And there are certain racial groups with genes in common. Which can be identified and singled out. Harvard researchers developing genome-scale editing tools as fast and easy as word processing can rewrite the genome of living cells using the genetic equivalent of search and replace. What does that mean?

Wow, only a billion undesirables left to get rid of. But wait, the people are figuring out, in spite of secrecy and stealth, that The Plan is ongoing. The implementers can't blame sunspots, or global change or Gaea Theory anymore. The Earth isn't doing this, someone else is. Now it's getting down to the crunch.
Will the military power obey the plan? The Generals will, of course, but will the noble soldier raid and kill his own citizens on command? We know that Xe will follow orders. They are mercenaries. Hired guns with itchy trigger fingers who simply enjoy murder. But a US Marine instructed to attack and kill in New York or Alabama or California? That is an unknown. The problem with Evil is always that Good rises for the fight.

Except that we might have all believed the evil WAS the good as the world's population was being reduced. Except we are now coming home and subject to a final 'cleanup'. The Good has become the Evil.

So then we've got the NRA, the National Rifle Association, with 4.3 million members, and Charlton Heston who might still be holding onto his weapon. And the Minutemen, reviving themselves all across America right now. Militia movements are reorganizing, restructuring and connecting with each other. And there are those lifelong rebels and rabblerousers who just won't go along with any Plan. Quiet men who won't be led, and who possess the caution of moonshiners when it comes to outsiders. And we also know that a huge part of the US population has guns. Three hundred million of them with tons of ammo too. And these groups all believe fervently in the second amendment;  "A well regulated militia, being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed." ... and there are hundreds of thousands of men and women who know exactly why that amendment was introduced. 

The Founders of the US Constitution added the 2nd Amendment so that when, after a long train of abuses, a government evinces a methodical design upon American's natural rights, they will have the means to protect and recover those rights. That is why the right to keep and bear arms was included in the Bill of Rights.
In fact, if we make the judgment that our rights are being systematically violated, we have not merely the right, but the duty, to resist and overthrow the power responsible. That duty requires that we always maintain the material capacity to resist tyranny, if necessary, something that it is very hard to do if the government has all the weapons. Therefore a strong case can be made that it is a fundamental duty of the free citizen to keep and bear arms.

So what is that last hope?  It might be outspoken and sometimes considered outrageous men like Ted Nugent. Who would most certainly champion others in a resistance to an oligarchy in the US Government. Or the Minutemen, who would also have a loose connection to each other. And yes, even though poor rocker Ted expresses his love for the USA and a willingness to uphold a law abiding country by use of arms, he would be far too dangerous and taken out rather quickly. But that action and others like it, targeting true patriots who would not believe in the so called Patriot Act, could start a domino effect. Yes civil war from within in the name of liberty.

Would the last hope of freedom loving people be the ones they shun now?

Have a listen to Ted Nugent here and see if you can disagree with him?

Are you gonna cheer for Ted now?
