Charles Krauthammer,on the use of drones –

“A drone is a high-tech version of an old army. It ought to be used in Somalia to hunt bad guys but not in America. Yes, you can say we have satellites, we have Google Street, we have everything else, but that is no reason to accept a society where you are always watched by the government.

I would predict the first guy who uses a second amendment weapon to bring a drone down who is hovering over his house will become a folk hero.”

Hayden’s Note:

In my opinion, this is a subtle challenge by the establishment media, knowing that if it happens, “second amendment weapons” will be under fierce scrutiny.  Our mainstream media puppets are always trying to usher along the police state, helping it whenever possible while offering Orwellian Double-speak.

“Satellites…Google Street…These are okay, but oh, no! Not drones!” It’s the same thing, people! Wake up.

Louisiana is the World’s Prison Capital

Louisiana is the world’s prison capital. The state imprisons more of its people, per head, than any of its U.S. counterparts. First among Americans means first in the world. Louisiana’s incarceration rate is nearly triple Iran’s, seven times China’s and 10 times Germany’s.

The hidden engine behind the state’s well-oiled prison machine is cold, hard cash. A majority of Louisiana inmates are housed in for-profit facilities, which must be supplied with a constant influx of human beings or a $182 million industry will go bankrupt.

Hayden’s Note:

This is a product of the War on Drugs, poor education, and corrupt public officials who fail at managing money, all the while lining their own pockets.  Fact.

Several homegrown private prison companies command a slice of the market. But in a uniquely Louisiana twist, most prison entrepreneurs are rural sheriffs, who hold tremendous sway in remote parishes like Madison, Avoyelles, East Carroll and Concordia. A good portion of Louisiana law enforcement is financed with dollars legally skimmed off the top of prison operations.

If the inmate count dips, sheriffs bleed money....

Okla Gov. Mary Fallin Booed Off Stage by Ron Paul Supporters at State GOP Convention

Posted on May 14, 2012 in Political Issues

Ron Paul supporters came up short in securing all of Oklahoma’s national delegates during a raucous state convention — hindered by fights over rules and a physical altercation between opposing delegates.

Backers of Paul booed Oklahoma Gov. Mary Fallin and former Minnesota Gov. Tim Pawlenty, a onetime 2012 GOP presidential contender, when both encouraged the approximately 1,400 delegates to support the presumed Republican Party presidential nominee, Mitt Romney.

Paul supporters, who numbered about 600 and made up about 40% of the convention, used various parliamentary procedures to contest rules.

They complained the state party violated its own rules by failing to have a roll-call vote on the slate of national delegates and voted against adjourning the convention.

Understanding the Ron Paul Strategy: Delegates, the RNC, and a Revolution

Posted on May 10, 2012 in Political Issues

Over the last couple of weeks, the Ron Paul campaign has picked up a majority of delegates in Iowa, Colorado, Maine, and Nevada.  He’s on pace to also pick up the majority of delegates in at least four additional states…and those are just the sure things.  This is all part of a process that actually started over 4 years ago when Paul ran for President and his deputy campaign manager, Debbie Hopper, did yeoman’s work with the grassroots to recognize the intensity and develop this strategy.

The media is now belatedly noticing that this has been happening.  It has already succeeded in taking control of slews of local and county GOP organizations, putting at least seven Paul backers on the Republican National Committee, and completely taking over the party in multiple states…and counting.

The question that much of the legacy media is now starting to ask is “Why?”  As with so much reporting, they then go on to attempt to answer their own question and fail....

The Case for Saving Your Nickels, Literally: Inflation and Metal Debasement

Posted on May 10, 2012 in Economic News, Emergency Preparedness & Survival

Source: SurvivalBlog

I’ve often mused about how fun it would be to have a time machine and travel back to the early 1960s, and go on a pre-inflation shopping spree. In that era, most used cars were less than $800, and a new-in-the box Colt .45 Automatic sold for $60. In particular, it would be great to go back and get a huge pile of rolls of then-circulating US silver dimes, quarters, and half dollars at face value. (With silver presently around $30 per ounce, the US 90% silver (1964 and earlier) coinage is selling wholesale at 22 times face value–that is $22,000 for a $1,000 face value bag.)

The disappearance of 90% silver coins from circulation in the US in the mid-1960s beautifully illustrated Gresham’s Law: “Bad Money Drives Out Good.” People quickly realized that the debased copper sandwich coins were bogus, so anyone with half a brain saved every pre-’65 (90% silver) coin that they could find. (This resulted in a coin shortage from 1965 to 1967, while the mint frantically played catch up, producing millions of cupronickel “clad” coins....

ITS Tactical: Attack Recognition and the Art of the Ambush

Source: ITS TacticalReally great resource, listed in sidebar ->

Now that you have your routes planned out and have a basic knowledge of surveillance detection its time to talk about attack recognition and the ambush.

We are going to continue to focus on your route from home to work and attacks to your vehicle. I want to focus on your vehicle and travels and not worry about avoiding a sucker punch on the street.

Attack recognition is a whole other animal when you talk about self defense (Tony Blauer has excellent information on physical attack recognition and response).

What’s an Ambush?

An ambush is a surprise attack, from a concealed position. It’s used on a moving or temporarily halted enemy to destroy or capture him and his equipment. This definition is taken right from Infantry 101.

Ambushes have been around since the beginning of ancient warfare and are still in use today in modern combat. So long as there’s war, there will be the art of the ambush.

Attack Recognition

When you can recognize an attack you can use your pre-planned tactics to escape the assault....

Amish Farm Kids Remarkably Immune to Allergies

Posted on May 07, 2012 in Health, Food News, & Big Pharma, Urban Gardening, Farming & Homesteading

Kevin Hayden –

Amish children raised on rural farms in northern Indiana suffer from asthma and allergies less often even than Swiss farm kids, a group known to be relatively free from allergies, according to a new study.

The rates are very, very low,” said Dr. Mark Holbreich, the study’s lead author. “So there’s something that we feel is even more protective in the Amish” than in European farming communities.

What it is about growing up on farms — and Amish farms in particular — that seems to prevent allergies remains unclear.

Researchers have long observed the so-called “farm effect” — the low allergy and asthma rates found among kids raised on farms — in central Europe, but less is known about the influence of growing up on North American farms.

Holbreich, an allergist in Indianapolis, has been treating Amish communities in Indiana for two decades, but he noticed that very few Amish actually had any allergies.

The study did not determine why the kids who grew up on farms were less likely to develop asthma and allergies, but other research has pointed to exposure to microbes and contact with cows, in particular, to partially explain the farm effect (see Reuters Health story of May 2, 2012)....

US Army Re-Education Camps and PsyOps: Internment and Resettlement Operations

An American military document just uncovered appears to detail a US Army plan that calls for detaining “political activists” at re-education camps staffed by military-hired “PsyOps officers” in both America and abroad.

The website has unearthed the smoking gun, a copy of a United States military manual entitled FM 3-39.40 Internment and Resettlement Operations, which appears to offer Defense Department insiders instructions on dealing with the imprisonment of anyone considered an enemy to the American way of life and how to go about indoctrinating them with an “appreciation of US policies and actions” through psychological warfare.

Hayden’s Note:

I’m still doing my own research on this topic, but wanted to go ahead and post it so that you might be aware of it.  We’ve all heard about the Internment and Resettlement Specialist positions that were being offered within the US Army last year, but this is the first I have heard about any domestic confirmation for camps, aside from the hysteria created by the old ‘Civilian Inmate Labor’ document a few years ago (which turned out to be nothing nefarious, simply a policy on how to handle civilian inmates on military installations).

FBI Prevents Another of Their Own Terror Plots – Shaquille Azir and the Occupiers

Posted on May 03, 2012 in Alphabet Agencies & Operations, Blog, Editorials, & Thoughts, Police, Military, & War

Source: TechDirt – Editorial by Kevin Hayden

We’ve discussed this a few times in the past, but the FBI’s main counter-terrorism initiative these days appears to be centered around creating its own terrorist plots to thwart. First, they find clueless, easily manipulated people, who have no actual connections with terrorists. Then, they concoct entire terrorism plots, where every other person is an FBI agent, and any tools, “weapons” and money are supplied by the FBI. Finally, they “bust” the guy just before he carries out the plot that never would have happened anyway. We see this pattern again and again — and each time the press uncritically hypes up how the FBI successfully stopped a real “homegrown” terrorist.

Of course, it’s happened once again, and the basic plotlines are identical to ones in the past. And, of course, the press is describing it like it was an actual terrorist plot, pretending that people was actually at risk.

Hayden’s Note:

In the FBI’s latest screenplay, they would have you believe that a 6’5, 350 lb. black man named Shaquille Azir approached a group of five motley Occupy protesters – who are self-described anarchists – and talk them into bombing a bridge with C-4 explosives.

ATF, Obama, Fast and Furious: Don’t Care if Grenades Explode and Kill

Posted on May 03, 2012 in Alphabet Agencies & Operations, Police, Military, & War, Political Issues

In a shocking development in the Operation Fast and Furious investigation, documents show Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives agents allowed grenade parts to walk into Mexico in addition to guns.

The emails also show Obama administration officials acknowledging that they may lose track of grenades but would still be able to accomplish their original objective even if the grenades explode.

“Even in a post blast, as long as the safety lever is recovered we will be able to identify these tagged grenades,” an official wrote in one email.

According to an internal email that was provided to Congress by the Department of Justice and first reported by CBS News’ Sharyl Attkisson — who’s been the media’s most dogged reporter in tracking down facts on Fast and Furious – ATF began watching accused smuggler Jean Baptiste Kingery’s AK-47 purchases in 2004. In the 2009 internal ATF email, Obama administration officials admitted they believed Kingery was “trafficking them into Mexico.”

The 2009 email shows the ATF officials had then become aware of Kingery’s alleged grenade trafficking....

Another Win: Albuquerque, New Mexico Halts Water Fluoridation

Recently there has been a new victory in the ongoing, undermanned, and heavily justified war on water fluoridation in the southwest United States.

The city of Albuquerque, New Mexico has made the auspicious decision to effectively end all artificial water fluoridation within the city’s water supply.

It was reported first by local news authority, KOB news channel 4, earlier this month that the city, in order to save money and consequently save the over half million local population from the many detrimental effects of fluoride in the water supply, had removed the addition entirely.

Russia Used Small EMP Mortars to Target Rebel Cellular Communications

Posted on May 01, 2012 in Emergency Preparedness & Survival, Police, Military, & War, Science & Technology

Military officials say the threat of electromagnetic pulse weapons in future warfare is growing.

The threat is prompting the Pentagon to take steps to harden its computers and electronics against the devastating effects of EMP weapons, which simulate the debilitating effect on electronics produced by a nuclear blast.

A military source tells Inside the Ring that Russia has already developed battlefield EMP weapons and used them in combat.

During the early 2000s, Russian military forces fired an EMP mortar round that deployed a small metal-coated parachute. As it floated to earth, the EMP energy burst was reflected downward by the underside of the parachute and also spread by the cords attached to the shell. The result was a cone of anti-electronic energy that disrupted all electronics within its area.

The mortar was used by Russian forces to attack hand-held cellular telephones used by Chechen rebels to communicate....
