Senator Asks CIA Nominee When Drones Can Kill Americans; Can They Surrender?

The man in charge of America’s drone wars will face Senate questioning about perhaps their most controversial aspect: when the president can target American citizens for death.

Sen. Ron Wyden (D-Ore.) sent a letter on Monday to John Brennan, the White House’s counterterrorism adviser and nominee to be head of the CIA, asking for an outline of the legal and practical rules that underpin the U.S. government’s targeted killing of American citizens suspected of working with al-Qaida. The Obama administration has repeatedly resisted disclosing any such information about its so-called “disposition matrix” targeting terrorists, especially where it concerns possible American targets. Brennan reportedly oversees that matrix from his White House perch, and would be responsible for its execution at CIA director.

“How much evidence does the President need to determine that a particular American can be lawfully killed?” Wyden, a member of the Senate intelligence committee, asks in the letter, acquired by Danger Room. “Does the President have to provide individual Americans with the opportunity to surrender before killing them?”

Hayden’s Note: Former New Orleans Mayor Ray Nagin Indicted on 21 Federal Corruption Charges

Ray Nagin, former New Orleans mayor and the public face of the battered city in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina, has been indicted by a grand jury on 21 federal corruption charges.

Hayden’s Note:

Let’s just file this under, “….duh!”  There are a slew of New Orleans government officials and police officers who should face a grand jury inquiry.  It was only a matter of time until Mayor Ray Nagin was caught.  But, for those of you who don’t live in New Orleans, or don’t understand the depth of the corruption and depravity down there, this is par for the course.  This comes as no surprise to anyone who understands how NOLA operates, which is saddening, because there is no other place quite like it.  New Orleans is an amazing, magical place in so many ways, but the mindset, and the “way we do things” down there distorts it into a large-scale ghetto, full of the worst that mankind can offer one another.  I will always consider it my former home, but there truly is no way to turn it into the place it should and could be.

Homeland Security’s TSA VIPR Team at NFL Game with Surveillance Drone

Reports are popping up all over the internet regarding a Homeland Security/TSA VIPR Team at the December 30th, 2012 Vikings vs. Packers football game.  Furthermore, additional photos are claiming a surveillance drone was deployed at the Metrodome plaza on the west side.

What are VIPR Teams, you ask?  Unlike the warm, fuzzy blue-shirts at the airport, these guys want to grope you on the bus, search your vehicle at an interstate checkpoint while driving home, interrogate you while riding a train, and rummage through your luggage while utilizing “any form of transportation….any location within the United States”, per 6 USC § 1112.

While some might scoff at the idea of a surveillance drone hovering over a football event, or dismiss it as a sports photography drone, I urge you to consider the overall situation. Furthermore, drone aside; having a VIPR team at a random NFL event should send chills up your spine.

I was present, as a police officer, when the Security and Prosperity Partnership of North America summit was held in New Orleans in 2008.  ...

FDA Quietly Increases Allowed Radiation Doses of Meats for Human Consumption

Posted on Dec 12, 2012 in Alphabet Agencies & Operations, Health, Food News, & Big Pharma

Rather than actually take the time to address the root causes of meat and poultry contamination, which more often than not are a direct result of outrageously unsanitary factory farming practices, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has instead decided to simply up the doses of radiation that industrial food producers are allowed to blast on their filthy, contaminated meat products.

In the first new rule recently published in the Federal Register, the FDA specifies that “unrefrigerated uncooked meat” can now be irradiated right alongside refrigerated, frozen and cooked meat. And in the second new rule, the FDA increases the amount of ionizing radiation that can be applied to poultry products such as chicken by 50 percent, bumping the dosage up to 4.5 kilograys (kGy) of radiation from the previous 3.0 kGy.

You can view the two published rules here:
http://www.gpo.gov/fdsys/pkg/FR-2012-11-30/pdf/2012-28967.pdf

These two rules, which were enacted quietly and without any media fanfare (big surprise), come more than a decade after the U.S. Department of Agriculture‘s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) first petitioned the FDA for their passage back in 1999....

Pearl Harbor: a Noble Lie

Posted on Dec 07, 2012 in Alphabet Agencies & Operations, Police, Military, & War, Political Issues

Soon after the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor on December 7, 1941, rumors began to circulate challenging the official narrative that it was an unprovoked surprise attack. The cumulative evidence gathered over the last seventy years by scholars, journalists, and investigators vindicates those suspicious of treachery from the top; for it comprises a solid circumstantial case that Franklin D. Roosevelt and his top advisors deliberately provoked the attack and intentionally looked the other way before it came.

What was the reason for their treachery?

Roosevelt wanted to plunge the United States into the European war on the side of Great Britain but was unsuccessful in provoking Germany in the North Atlantic. So he decided that provoking a Japanese attack upon U.S. military bases in the Pacific would be the best way to achieve that objective. Since Japan was allied with Germany under the Tripartite Pact, Roosevelt calculated a war with Japan would sooner or later bring the United States into the war against Germany.

Most historians, when pressed on the matter, now grudgingly concede that Roosevelt lied when he told the American people that he would never send their boys to fight into foreign wars, but they excuse his treachery as a “noble lie,” a deception perpetrated against the public by the political elite to achieve a supposed greater good....

A bill condemning detention provisions written into the National Defense Authorization Act and blocking any state cooperation with federal agents attempting to detain people in Michigan without due process unanimously passed the Michigan House Wednesday.

HB 5768 declares, “no agency of this state, no political subdivision of this state, no employee of an agency of this state or a political subdivision of this state acting in his or her official capacity, and no member of the Michigan national guard on official state duty shall aid an agency of the armed forces of the United States in any investigation, prosecution, or detention of any person pursuant to section 1021 of the national defense authorization act…”

It passed 107-0.

Bill sponsor Rep. Tom McMillin was jubilant after the vote.

“My bill opposing NDAA’s indefinite detention, and taking away due process, and prohibiting the Michigan government from participating passed the House today. On to the State Senate,” he said.

A large coalition of grassroots activists spanning the political spectrum, including the Tenth Amendment Center, supported the bill and lobbied for its passage....

A specially equipped Black Hawk was recently used to demonstrate the helicopter’s ability to operate on its own.

Hayden’s Note:

Well, I suppose this isn’t the best time for me to decide to become a helicopter pilot. :-/

In the first test of its type, the U.S. Army Aviation and Missile Research’s Development and Engineering Center, based at Redstone Arsenal, flew the Black Hawk over Diablo Mountain Range in San Jose, Calif. Pilots were aboard the aircraft for the tests, but all flight maneuvers were conducted autonomously: obstacle field navigation, safe landing area determination, terrain sensing, statistical processing, risk assessment, threat avoidance, trajectory generation and autonomous flight control were performed in real time.

“This was the first time terrain-aware autonomy has been achieved on a Black Hawk,” said Lt. Col. Carl Ott, chief of the Flight Projects Office at AMRDEC’s Aeroflightdynamics Directorate and one of the tests pilots....

Private, For-Profit Corrections Corporation of America Used in Drug Sweep of Public School

Posted on Nov 29, 2012 in Alphabet Agencies & Operations, Constitutional & Liberty Issues, Police, Military, & War

While such “drug sweeps” have become a routine matter in many of the nation’s schools, along with the use of metal detectors and zero-tolerance policies, one feature of this raid was unusual.

According to Casa Grande Police Department (CGPD) Public Information Officer Thomas Anderson, four “law enforcement agencies” took part in the operation: CGPD (which served as the lead agency and operation coordinator), the Arizona Department of Public Safety, the Gila River Indian Community Police Department, and Corrections Corporation of America (CCA).

It is the involvement of CCA — the nation’s largest private, for-profit prison corporation — that causes this high school “drug sweep” to stand out as unusual; CCA is not, despite CGPD’s evident opinion to the contrary, a law enforcement agency.

Hayden’s Note:

Companies such as CCA are literally traded on Wall Street according to the number of prisoners they have in their “custody.” Think about that for a minute and let it really sink in.

“To invite for-profit prison guards to conduct law enforcement actions in a high school is perhaps the most direct expression of the ‘schools-to-prison pipeline’ I’ve ever seen,” said Caroline Isaacs, program director of the Tucson office of the American Friends Service Committee (AFSC), a Quaker social justice organization that advocates for criminal justice reform....

Former Head of ICE Sentenced to 6 Years for Child P0rn: Hayden’s Note

The law enforcement officer charged with busting child-porn cases was sentenced to 70 months in prison for transporting images of child porn on his computer.

The former Miami chief of the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement was sentenced to nearly six years in prison and 20 years of supervised release on Friday after pleading guilty to Internet child-pornography charges.

In court on Friday, Anthony Mangione did not say why he started viewing child pornography, the Sun-Sentinel reported from West Palm Beach.

According to court documents, Mangione, 52, who led the fight to hunt down child-porn suspects, was caught sending pictures of children engaging in sex after AOL detected the images and contacted the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children.

Investigators found a dozen computers and 16 cellphones when they searched Mangione’s Parkland home in April 2011. Soon after, Mangione retired from ICE after being sent on administrative leave.

Hayden’s Note:

The Chief investigator for child trafficking and related offenses is caught by AOL and didn’t understand how internet perpetrators are caught?? Not only should we question the integrity and personalities of our authorities, I think we need to re-examine their credentials for the job they are hired for!

Ingress, Keyhole, and the CIA: Google’s New Augmented Reality Video Game

John Hanke is the head of Niantic Labs, the Google unit that created Ingress, a new global augmented reality game.

Let’s quickly look at some of what Hanke was up to before he worked at Google.

After graduation from the University of Texas at Austin, Hanke, “Worked in foreign affairs for the US Government in Washington, DC and Southeast Asia.” Nice and vague. *wink* *wink*

Hanke went on to become the CEO of Keyhole, Inc., a company that specialized in geospatial data visualization and had multiple connections to the black world. Keyhole, Inc. received financial backing from the CIA (via In-Q-Tel). Google acquired Keyhole, Inc. and the associated technologies became Google Earth, Google Maps, and other Google services.

This is relatively bland so far, I know, but I’ll leave it up to you to decide if any of the following is strange, given Hanke’s long association with the U.S. Government.

It might be helpful to keep Secrets in Plain Sight in mind as you wade into this one.

In Ingress, Google wants people to be physically present at the locations that are in the game to confront, “A mysterious energy,” and to, “Choose a side.”

“The Enlightened” seek to embrace the power that this energy may bestow upon us.

Vote Obama for Unaccountable Drone Warfare. Vote Romney for Unaccountable Drone Warfare

Posted on Oct 23, 2012 in Alphabet Agencies & Operations, Police, Military, & War, Political Issues

Last night’s debate highlighted the fact that Barack Obama and Mitt Romney are in full agreement with each other that secret unmanned US missile strikes, documented to have killed thousands of innocent people, are “necessary” and “right “.

When Romney was asked about the US policy of drone strikes in Pakistan and elsewhere, he responded:

“Well, I believe that we should use any and all means necessary to take out people who pose a threat to us and our friends around the world. And it’s widely reported that drones are being used in drone strikes, and I support that entirely and feel the president was right to up the usage of that technology, and believe that we should continue to use it, to continue to go after the people who represent a threat to this nation and to our friends.”

Indeed, perhaps the only difference you’ll get with Romney is that he’ll use even more drones…

“But let me also note that, as I said earlier, we’re going to have to do more than just going after leaders and — and killing bad guys, important as that is.”

Conor Friedersdorf at the Atlantic today poses the question ‘What If Mitt Romney Inherits Obama’s Killer Drone Fleet?’ and presents facts that confirm both candidates have shown that they would continue unscrupulous operation of death from above....

FBI Foil Own Terror Plot, Again – This Time at Federal Reserve

Posted on Oct 17, 2012 in Alphabet Agencies & Operations, Constitutional & Liberty Issues, Federal Reserve & Bankers, Political Issues

Kevin Hayden – TruthisTreason.net

Agents of the Federal Bureau of Investigation are giving each other high-fives tonight after arresting a 21 year-old man in a federal sting designed to entrap “terrorists.”  In reality, they found a young man with little self-esteem, dreams of grandeur and martyrdom, and then led him to the New York Federal Reserve with a 1,000 lb. fake bomb.

Quazi Mohammad Rezwanul Ahsan Nafis, 21, was arrested in downtown Manhattan after he attempted to detonate what he believed to be a 1,000-pound bomb that the Feds gave him at the New York Federal Reserve Bank on Liberty Street in lower Manhattan’s financial district.

Agents set up a sting [and] say the suspect parked a van that he thought was filled with explosives at the Federal Reserve.

He then tried to set the bomb off with a cell phone call made from the Millennium Hotel, across from the World Trade Center. – ABC 

Once the attempt to detonate the bomb was made, the FBI swooped in and arrested the “terrorist” that they created.  We’ve seen this time and time again, and nothing has changed with the storyline since the last 14 Fed-created Terrorists were “foiled.”  I’m sure the agents involved in this amazing arrest are buying each other rounds at a local pub, recalling the miraculous job they did at keeping the Homeland safe from terrorism....

According to a release Wednesday, WikiLeaks will begin publishing 200,000 files relating to the presidential election. The GI (Global Intelligence) files are emails obtained through a hack on private intelligence firm Stratfor, which were leaked to WikiLeaks by Anonymous. The release states:

These GI Files releases will shed insight into key U.S. federal election players… Through this release WikiLeaks aims to inform the U.S. electorate in an unbiased way through the release of source documents from one of the most oddly influential companies in the U.S. today.

WikiLeaks notes that Statfor, “a secretive multi-national private intelligence firm, providing services to large corporations, and government agencies” has a revolving door with government offices and thus the leaked emails could be a source of important information on both Democrats and Republicans in this election. Wednesday marks the beginning of the document dump, so it may take some time before any dirt is dug up (if there is dirt to find).
