London 2012 Olympics: Surface-to-Air Missiles on Apartment Roofs

The Ministry of Defence is considering placing surface-to-air missiles on residential flats during the Olympics.

An east London estate, where 700 people live, has received leaflets saying a “Higher Velocity Missile system” could be placed on a water tower.

Hayden’s Note:

When is enough, enough?  Missiles on top of apartments in order to safeguard the Olympics?  Really?

A spokesman said the MoD had not yet decided whether to deploy ground based air defence systems during the event.

The journalist said: “At first I thought it was a hoax. I can’t see what purpose high-velocity missiles could serve over a crowded area like Tower Hamlets.

“They say they’ll only use them as a last resort, but… you’d shower debris across the east end of London by firing these missiles.”

He continued: “They are going to have a test run next week, putting high velocity missiles on the roof just above our apartment and on the back of it they’re stationing police and military in the tower of the building for two months.

“It [the leaflet] says there will be 10 officers plus police present 24/7.”...

Hundreds of Economists: Marijuana Prohibition Costs Billions, Legalization Would Earn Billions

Posted on Apr 28, 2012 in Constitutional & Liberty Issues, Police, Military, & War, Political Issues

Over 300 economists, including three Nobel Laureates, recently signed a petition that encourages the president, Congress, governors and state legislatures to carefully consider marijuana legalization in America. The petition draws attention to an article by Harvard economist Jeffrey Miron, whose findings highlight the substantial cost-savings our government could incur if it were to tax and regulate marijuana, rather than needlessly spending billions of dollars enforcing its prohibition.

Miron predicts that legalizing marijuana would save $7.7 billion per year in government expenditure on enforcement, in addition to generating $2.4 billion annually if taxed like most consumer goods, or $6 billion per year if taxed similarly to alcohol and tobacco.

Hayden’s Note: 

…and thousands of law enforcement officers agree.

Our marijuana policies have proven ineffective, expensive and discriminatory. Our courtrooms, jails and prisons remain crowded with nonviolent drug offenders. And yet, the government persists in its costly, racist and counterproductive criminalization of marijuana. We learned our lesson decades ago with alcohol prohibition; it is long overdue for us to do the same with marijuana prohibition....

If I Wanted America to Fail – Hayden’s Note

Posted on Apr 28, 2012 in Blog, Editorials, & Thoughts, Economic News, Federal Reserve & Bankers, Political Issues

Kevin Hayden –

“The environmental agenda has been infected by extremism—it’s become an economic suicide pact.”

While I enjoyed this video, I was wholly saddened by the fact that it, too, has a strong agenda and seems to have large pocketbooks behind it.  I noticed they didn’t mention US foreign policy ONCE, nor did they mention the damage that the Federal Reserve has done.  All in all, it’s a short video and worth watching, but as I always say, “Question Everything.”

Everyone has an agenda, and it is often times hard to see past the dazzling camera effects, feigned sincerity, and keyword emphasis, but keep your mind sharp and you’ll see through it every time.

DoD Confirms Russian Airborne Troops to Train on US Soil

Posted on Apr 28, 2012 in Alphabet Agencies & Operations, Police, Military, & War

Kevin Hayden –

The Department of Defense has confirmed foreign media reports that Russian troops are set to target terrorists on Americans soil as part of an unprecedented joint drill with the United States which will take place in Colorado next month.

Airborne troops from Russia are set to take part in drills focused around targeting terrorists at Fort Carson between May 24 and May 31. The soldiers will also be mingling with the local community, attending a baseball game in Colorado Springs during their stay.

One of the primary reasons why this story hasn’t gone viral is because doubt was cast on the issue when a known disinformation outlet (European Union Times) decided to embellish the details by adding completely manufactured nonsense about Russian troops “seizing the CIA’s main computer facility in Denver, the NSA’s main computer facility in Bluffdale, Utah, and taking control of main runways and terminals of the Denver International Airport.”

Despite the fact that these claims come from a source who is notorious for making a living out of fooling people into believing bogus stories, Glenn Beck’s The Blaze website carried them without retraction....

The Barter Value of Skills

Posted on Apr 27, 2012 in Emergency Preparedness & Survival, Urban Gardening, Farming & Homesteading

Recently, we talked about the necessity of learning skills to aid us in a survival situation.  Don’t underestimate the value of those skills for barter.  If the grid goes down, people may be left with no access to medical care, serious gaps in their knowledge or the inability to repair vital items.  If you possess those abilities, your skills will be in high demand.

In the situation of economic collapse, there will be a revival of the barter system.  To barter means to exchange your goods or services for someone else’s goods or services.  To complete a satisfactory barter transaction, each person must desire something from the other party.  Despite the potential of desperation, it’s morally imperative to be fair to the party that is most in need. Remember that one day, that person who is most in need may be you.

Right now, if something breaks, the replacement is only as far away as the closest Wal-Mart.  However, in the event of an economic collapse or a disaster that causes the trucks to stop running, it won’t be easy to replace broken items....

Red Cross on Standby for Chicago Evacuation Due to Civil Unrest, “National Security Incident”

Posted on Apr 26, 2012 in Alphabet Agencies & Operations, Emergency Preparedness & Survival, Global & National News

Is there a secret plan to evacuate some residents of Chicago in the event of major trouble during the NATO summit next month? CBS 2 has uncovered some evidence that there is. It comes from the Milwaukee area branch of the American Red Cross.

CBS 2 News has obtained a copy of a Red Cross e-mail sent to volunteers in the Milwaukee area.

It said the NATO summit “may create unrest or another national security incident. The American Red Cross in southeastern Wisconsin has been asked to place a number of shelters on standby in the event of evacuation of Chicago.”

According to a chapter spokesperson, “Our direction has come from the City of Chicago and the Secret Service.”

Hayden’s Note:

Perhaps they are merely covering their bases should something bad occur, but I find it awfully peculiar given the Fed’s dismal track record of preparedness, disaster response, and contingency planning.

Feds and Utilities Argue Over Electromagnetic Pulse Threat Coming in 2014

Posted on Apr 25, 2012 in - NASA / Space Exploration, Emergency Preparedness & Survival

Kevin Hayden –

As scientists warn of an impending solar storm between now and 2014 that could collapse the national power grid, thrusting millions into darkness instantly, a debate has flared up between utilities and the government on the severity of such an event.

NASA and the National Academy of Sciences previously confirmed that an electromagnetic pulse event from an intense solar storm could occur any time between now and 2014.

They say it could have the effect of frying electronics and knocking out transformers in the national electric grid system.

But in February, the North American Electric Reliability Corporation, which represents the power industry, issued a stunning report asserting that a worst-case geomagnetic “super storm” like the 1859 Carrington event likely wouldn’t damage most power grid transformers. Instead, it would cause voltage instability and possibly result in blackouts lasting only a few hours or days, but not months and years.

Hayden’s Note:

Hah!  Riiiiight.  Keep thinking that.  And good luck.

I strongly believe that our government is aware of an imminent threat coming in the next 24 months and is preparing for it.

Pentagon’s New Spy Agency: Defense Clandestine Service, the CIA’s New Counterpart

The Pentagon is set to create [yet another new intelligence / defense / espionage organization] to focus on global strategic threats and the challenges posed by countries including Iran, North Korea, and China. The move will bring to 17 the total number of intelligence organizations in the US.

The Defense Clandestine Service is supposed to work closely with its counterpart in the CIA, the National Clandestine Service, recruiting spies from the ranks of the Pentagon’s Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA) and deploying them globally on perceived long-term threats to US national interests.

Hayden’s Note:

Just what we need.  As if the DHS, ICE, HSI, FBI, ATF, DEA, CIA, DIA, NSA, TSA, NCS, TFI, INR, NRO, ONI, NSI, DOD, and the CBP weren’t enough, now we get another “defense intelligence” organization.

Welcome to 1984.

State Dept Claims ‘War on Terror is Over’ – So Can We Get Rid of the Police State?

Posted on Apr 25, 2012 in Alphabet Agencies & Operations, Constitutional & Liberty Issues, Police, Military, & War

Kevin Hayden –

Source: Natural News

In an astonishing bit of unexpected news, a senior State Department official has announced, “The war on terror is over.” This stems from the idea, reports the National Journal, that, “it is no longer the case, in other words, that every Islamist is seen as a potential accessory to terrorists.”

That same official continues, “Now that we have killed most of al Qaida, now that people have come to see legitimate means of expression, people who once might have gone into al Qaida see an opportunity for a legitimate Islamism.”

This is great news, isn’t it? If the “War on Terror” is over, then we can repeal and reverse all the ridiculous police state laws that were put in place to protect us from terrorism… right?

I mean, can we now fire the TSA? They were only put in place after the “terror” attacks on 9/11. If the war on terror is over, the TSA is no longer needed (even if you assume they were effective at all, which they weren’t).

Can we now repeal the Patriot Act which was passed out of an urgency to defend America from terrorists?...

Reader Emails: The Declaration of Independence Redux

Posted on Apr 24, 2012 in Blog, Editorials, & Thoughts, Constitutional & Liberty Issues, Political Issues

Kevin Hayden –

I received this in an email from a reader, who asks, “What would Mr. Thomas Jefferson write today?”  

I found his response to be quite valid and cogent, and certainly worth a read.

A New Declaration of Independence

When frustration and discontent make it necessary for people to change their government and exercise their rightful power to determine the government they want, respect for other people’s opinions requires that they explain why they are dissatisfied with their government.

We believe these truths are self-evident. We believe that all men are created equal. We believe they have natural rights, and that their inherent rights cannot be taken from them. Whether people believe in a Creator or not, we believe that these rights include Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of Happiness. Men create governments and consent to give them certain powers in order to protect and secure these rights for themselves. Whenever any government jeopardizes this goal, it is the Right of the People to alter or abolish it, and to institute new government founded on those principles and to give it the powers they think will best protect and serve their Safety and Happiness....

HR 1505: Drones, Agenda 21 Land Grab, and Forward Operating Bases

Posted on Apr 24, 2012 in Alphabet Agencies & Operations, Constitutional & Liberty Issues, Political Issues

Kevin Hayden –

House Bill 1505 could be nearing a vote, and it offers a whole lot more than many bargained for.  HR 1505 seeks to implement one of the most extensive increases in Police State power that I’ve seen in a long time, not to mention furthering the UN’s Agenda 21.

The intent of this bill is to prohibit the Secretary of the Interior and the Secretary of Agriculture from taking action on public lands which impede the border activities of the Secretary of Homeland Security.  One might simply think it is Congress’ way of making sure that Border Patrol can operate freely and unimpeded while preventing terrorism and illegal immigration.

In reality, this bill serves to decimate the US Constitution, negate the 10th Amendment, and infringe upon local, county, and state jurisdiction by giving 100 miles of land adjacent to any international border directly to Homeland Security without any recourse or oversight.

Section 2, (b) (1) 

Authorized Activities of U.S. Customs and Border Protection-

(A) Construction and maintenance of roads.

(B) Construction and maintenance of fences.

Biological Warfare and Its Effects

Posted on Apr 22, 2012 in Emergency Preparedness & Survival

Kevin Hayden –

Hayden’s Note:

Dr. Bones, of Doom and, has graciously contributed this article regarding biological warfare and its repercussions.  I consider Dr. Bones and Nurse Amy to be pioneers in the post-SHTF medical arena, bringing a full spectrum of in-depth and advanced medical knowledge to the average person. Their new book, the Doom and Bloom Survival Medicine Handbookwill be reviewed here shortly.

We have spent some time discussing traumatic wounds, thermal burns, and even radiation sickness, all of which are injuries sustained in disaster and doomsday scenarios.  Civil unrest, wildfires, nuclear bombs, and meltdowns are all catastrophes that the preparedness community is concerned about, but let’s talk about about something few consider as a possible cause of SHTF situations: biological warfare.

Biological warfare is the term given to the use of infectious agents such as bacteria, viruses, fungi or their by-products to wreak death and havoc among a specific population.  As a result, the user achieves control over an area or a segment of the population by weakening the ability to resist.  Biological weapons don’t necessarily have to kill humans: unleashing a horde of locusts to destroy crops or agents that kill livestock can be just as effective....

Fundraising Project: $5 from 500 Readers

Posted on Apr 22, 2012 in Truth is Treason News

Kevin Hayden –

I’m kicking off a small fundraising project to help move things along here at

The goal is for 500 readers to donate $5.00! Click here to donate!

With these funds, it will push me one step closer to running this website full time, along with pushing out videos and interviews more often.  I’ve been able to invest a few dollars into a new camera and new audio gear for better quality podcasts and videos, but there are still a few hurdles.

Along with allowing me to devote more time to the site, and the new sister-site, TruthisTreason.TV, this fundraiser will also help the progress at the Elysian Fields Project!


Readers have donated $100 so far!  If you’d like to help out, or love the site, please consider investing $5!

If you haven’t checked that out yet, it is my off-grid homesteading effort using shipping containers!  This project offers a LOT in the realm of DIY videos for homesteaders and preppers, along with furthering the emerging tiny home movement!

As always, I am only asking for these small donations because I would rather not resort to bombarding the website with advertising.  ...
