If there’s a single factor that reliably sparks social unrest, it’s food becoming too scarce or too expensive. So argues a group of complex systems theorists in Cambridge, and it makes sense.

In a 2011 paper, researchers at the Complex Systems Institute unveiled a model that accurately explained why the waves of unrest that swept the world in 2008 and 2011 crashed when they did. The number one determinant was soaring food prices. Their model identified a precise threshold for global food prices that, if breached, would lead to worldwide unrest.

The MIT Technology Review explains how CSI’s model works: “The evidence comes from two sources. The first is data gathered by the United Nations that plots the price of food against time, the so-called food price index of the Food and Agriculture Organisation of the UN. The second is the date of riots around the world, whatever their cause.” Plot the data, and it looks like this:

Pretty simple. Black dots are the food prices, red lines are the riots. In other words, whenever the UN’s food price index, which measures the monthly change in the price of a basket of food commodities, climbs above 210, the conditions ripen for social unrest around the world....

Wall Street-owned media group “Clarín” spearheading anti-government drive in South America’s Argentina. 

The US-engineered “Arab Spring” brought us the “April 6 Youth Movement” in Egypt, run by Wall Street-backed Mohammed El Baradei in coordination with the Muslim Brotherhood, the “February 17 Revolution,” consisting of Al Qaeda terrorists of the Libyan Islamic Fighting Group in Libya, and now Argentina has the “8N,” or “November 8″ movement working in coordination with foreign-owned Argentinian media group, “Clarín.”

Clarin has been enthusiastically supporting the protesters and laying the rhetorical groundwork justifying their street presence.

The Guardian reported in their article, “Argentina protests: up to half a million rally against Fernández de Kirchner,” that (emphasis added):

Word of the demonstration spread through social networks. Many organisers remain anonymous, but Mariana Torres, administrator of the Facebook page El Anti-K, one of the most active in calling for the rally, said she was delighted: “It was a true feast for democracy.”

There was no single cause of discontent. Many in the middle class are angry at the highest inflation in a decade, estimated at a yearly 25% by private economists, currency controls that have created a black market in dollars, and one of the slowest economic growth rates in Latin America.

Apple Moves One Step Closer Toward Location Based Camera Disabling nophoto mini

In June of last year, we reported on an unsettling patent filed by Apple that would allow certain infrared signals to remotely disable the camera on iPhones. It showed the potential downsides of bringing cameras into the world of wireless connectivity, which appears to be the next big thing in the camera industry. Now, a newly published patent is rekindling the fears of those who don’t want “Big Brother” controlling their devices.

U.S. Patent No. 8,254,902, published on Tuesday, is titled, “Apparatus and methods for enforcement of policies upon a wireless device.”

Hayden’s Note:

This will be used primarily for disabling of social networks and communication during civil unrest, protests, etc.

Homeland Security Gears up for Civil Unrest Prior to National Convention, Rushed Solicitation for Riot Gear Thumbnail

Homeland Security Gears up for Civil Unrest Prior to National Convention, Rushed Solicitation for Riot Gear

The Department of Homeland Security has ordered masses of riot gear equipment to prepare for potential significant domestic riots at the Republican National Convention, Democratic National Convention and next year’s presidential inauguration.

The DHS submitted a rushed solicitation to the Federal Business Opportunities site on Wednesday, which is a portal for Federal government procurement requisitions over $25,000. The request gave the potential suppliers only one day to submit their proposals and a 15-day delivery requirement to Alexandria, Virginia.

As the brief explains, “the objective of this effort is to procure riot gear to prepare for the 2012 Democratic and Republican National Conventions, the 2013 Presidential Inauguration and other future similar activities.”

Hayden’s Note:

It would seem as though the Powers That Be are a bit concerned over their Federal Protective Police Officers getting injured.  These officers guard Federal buildings and properties and typically do not possess riot gear.  With the hasty order, it is painfully apparent that they are expecting bigger trouble than usual from the citizens…err, I mean those violent protesters! As if Free Speech Zones weren’t enough, and an absurd amount of tactical officers in attendance, now we’re giving security guards riot gear?

US Army Domestic Quick Reaction Force – More Riot Control Training

For years, the alternative media has warned about the US military being used against the American people in a time of economic collapse or any sort of martial law scenario.

Drills such as Vigilant Guard 2010 have brought widespread attention to the fact that portions of our own military are training to take on crowds of American citizens demanding food and Constitutional rights in a time of crisis.

Now, a new release by the website Public Intelligence, once again confirms that as recently as February and March of 2012, US troops at Joint Base Lewis-McChord in Washington were conducting training scenarios for a civil disturbance domestic quick reaction force.

A series of photos of the drills shows US troops with crowd control riot shields on the opposite side of actors portraying what can only be described as American citizens.

“The following photos are from March and February of this year and were taken at Joint Base Lewis-McChord, Washington.  The first four photos from March depict riot control training for a “domestic quick reaction force” that would aid in civil disturbances....

US Congress Passes Authoritarian Anti-Protest Law

A bill passed Monday in the US House of Representatives and Thursday in the Senate would make it a felony—a serious criminal offense punishable by lengthy terms of incarceration—to participate in many forms of protest associated with the Occupy Wall Street protests of last year. Several commentators have dubbed it the “anti-Occupy” law, but its implications are far broader.

The bill—H.R. 347, or the “Federal Restricted Buildings and Grounds Improvement Act of 2011”—was passed by unanimous consent in the Senate, while only Ron Paul and two other Republicans voted against the bill in the House of Representatives (the bill passed 388-3). Not a single Democratic politician voted against the bill.

The virtually unanimous passage of H.R. 347 starkly exposes the fact that, despite all the posturing, the Democrats and the Republicans stand shoulder to shoulder with the corporate and financial oligarchy, which regarded last year’s popular protests against social inequality with a mixture of fear and hostility.

Among the central provisions of H.R. 347 is a section that would make it a criminal offense to “enter or remain in” an area designated as “restricted.”

The bill defines the areas that qualify as “restricted” in extremely vague and broad terms.

Read Between the Lines: Hollywood Mogul Buys 2,600 Acres of Farmland; Moving to New Zealand

James Cameron, the Hollywood producer responsible for blockbuster films like Terminator, Titanic and Avatar, is reportedly preparing to exit stage left. While the move for the Canadian born Cameron may initially be perceived as a rejection or denouncement of American policies and ideals, Cameron, who has made campaign donations to the Democrat Party in the past, most notably during the 2004 Presidential election where he supported democrat John Kerry, may have ulterior motivations, as evidenced by where he’s planning on moving and what he’s planning on doing once he gets there.

From time to time we get a glimpse into the goings on of the well connected. This may be one of those moments:

Cameron has successfully applied to buy 1,067 hectares (2,636 acres) of farmland in New Zealand. In an application filed with the New Zealand Overseas Investment Office, Cameron says he and his family “intend to reside indefinitely in New Zealand and are acquiring the property to reside on and operate as a working farm.”

As we’ve outlined before, farmland is one of the only reasonable physical assets to hold in the event of a major crisis, as you’ll be outside of highly populated metropolitan areas, you’ll have the ability to produce your own food, generate your own energy, and, more so than your urbanite and suburbanite counterparts, stay away from the chaos that will ensue during a major upheaval....

Homeland Security Admits Monitoring Twitter & Facebook for Signs of Civil Unrest

The wave of civil unrest that has swept the globe over the past year has prompted the Department of Homeland Security to step up its monitoring of Twitter and other social networks in a bid to pre-empt any sign of social dislocation within the United States.

“Department of Homeland Security Undersecretary Caryn Wagner said the use of such technology in uprisings that started in December in Tunisia shocked some officials into attention and prompted questions of whether the U.S. needs to do a better job of monitoring domestic social networking activity,” reports the Associated Press.

Wagner announced that the federal agency would implement new guidelines that would focus on “gleaning information from sites such as Twitter and Facebook for law enforcement purposes.”

Under the new framework, when the department receives information about a “potential threat,” it will then ask its contractors to look for relevant search references using “open source” information.

Although it’s somewhat naive to think that Homeland Security wasn’t already scanning the likes of Facebook and Twitter for social trends and signs of civil unrest, the fact that its now being announced publicly illustrates the increasing concern that riots which have hit the Middle East and Europe over the last 18 months will soon manifest themselves inside the United States....

Occupy OKC Protester Found Dead in Kerr Park, Linked to Bad Drugs

Posted on Oct 31, 2011 in Political Issues

Kevin Hayden – TruthisTreason.net

In early reports, it appears that an Occupy OKC protester has died at Kerr Park in Oklahoma City.  Police were initially investigating the death Monday afternoon as as a natural death, however with multiple homicide detectives and forensic investigators on scene, others are reporting they have one subject in custody, facing possible manslaughter charges.  I spoke with an investigator on scene who reported it as a likely drug overdose or stemmed from receiving bad drugs.

According to the Occupy OKC website and Facebook page, the group has been constantly dealing with in-fighting, rampant drug use, and even theft of their donations.  Several organizations who planned on donating to the protesters have since pulled their funding due to lack of organization, among other things.

Update: 

For now, the official word is that a protester known as, “The Poet,” died in his tent.  There isn’t much more being said and it sounds as though they are trying to classify it as a natural death, however I’ve never known a natural death to require four detectives, forensics, and a 4 hour investigation.  ...

Peter Schiff Takes On ‘the 99%’

Posted on Oct 27, 2011 in Economic News, Political Issues

Kevin Hayden – TruthisTreason.net

Peter Schiff, CEO and Chief Global Strategist of Euro Pacific Capital Inc., went to Zuccotti Park and took on Occupy Wall Street protesters and MRCTV caught some of the action.

Note to the Socialist and Collectivist members (those who believe in wealth redistribution and condemn private property rights) of the Occupy Movement: If you’re going to try and debate someone as like Peter Schiff on economic matters, arrive with more than recitations and talking points and please, please have a better response than simply, “…repeal the Bush tax cuts!” for every single question.

(Schiff can hardly get a word in at times.)

Sometimes, I just don’t have the words to describe the utter nonsense I hear from some people.

This man seems to be a “leader” within his small Occupy group as I’ve seen him on NUMEROUS YouTube videos leading marches, chants, general assemblies, and more.  There are hundreds, if not thousands, who follow this blond-haired, pimple-faced Sociology major who espouses an incredible disdain for personal freedom and liberty.  Instead, he promotes a State-led, subserviant lifestyle “where the government injects cash into people’s bank accounts.”  What he forgets is that the Constitution clearly states that Congress shall have the power of the purse, not a private banking cartel who works on Wall Street; the very street he claims to be protesting!

“Freedom from want…,” as he describes it.  I call it a lazy Utopian fantasy.  Continued below…

But that’s just my opinion.  I’m sure Thomas Jefferson, George Washington, Andrew Jackson, Benjamin Franklin, and many more would agree with me.  Keynesian economics and quantitative easing has not, nor will it, help the economy....

I posted this on the TruthisTreason.net Facebook page, but figured I’d make an actual article out of it since it was so well received.

In this video, Adam Kokesh (Formally the host of RT’s Adam vs. The Man) interviews the leader of Food, Not Bombs regarding the Parks Service harassing him for giving away free apples to nearby protesters.  They informed him this was against the law.  However, if he were giving away oranges or bananas, it would be fine.  An interesting bit towards the end is when the leader reveals that his grandfather had actually been a senior Parks Service member and had been responsible for securing the tract of land that was later turned into that particular National Park....

Chris Burris, writing for Lew Rockwell’s website yesterday, makes a good point about the Occupy Wall Street movement – they are barking up the wrong tree.


Democracy? How about a constitutionally limited republic?

Instead of occupying a park outside of Wall Street, they should march en masse to 33 Liberty Street. That’s where the New York Federal Reserve is located. In addition, they should take their chants and drums to the Harold Pratt House on 58 E. 68th Street at Park Avenue. The Council On Foreign Relations does business at that address.

If the Occupiers had a clue, they would go after the power elite instead of their workers down on Wall Street.

“But they won’t be led to confront the gods on Mount Olympus by their Judas goats and media shills,” Burris writes with an appropriate degree of sarcasm. “David Rockefelle­r, Pete Peterson, Warren Buffett, David Koch and Henry Kissinger might be held up from lunch at 21.”

In addition to Rockefeller and the CFR, protesters in Washington, DC, should immediately march on the North American headquarters of the Trilateral Commission, situated at 1156 Fifteen Street, NW, and make their demands known....
