The Avenger (formerly Predator C), whose prototype flew its first flight in 2009, is operationally ready after a new round of tests completed last month, according to its maker, General Atomics. Based on the company’s more well-known MQ-9 Reaper drone, Avenger is designed to perform high-speed, long-endurance surveillance or strike missions, flying up to 500 mph at a maximum of 50,000 feet for as long as 18 hours.

Compared to its earlier prototype, Avenger’s fuselage has been increased by four feet to accommodate larger payloads and more fuel, allowing for extended missions. It can carry up to 3,500 pounds internally, and its 66-foot wingspan is capable of carrying weapons as large as a 2,000-pound Joint Direct Attack Munition (JDAM).

Switching from propeller-driven drones to jets will allow the CIA to continue its Pakistan strikes from a more distant base, if and when the U.S. is forced to withdraw troops entirely from neighboring Afghanistan.

CIA Drones: The New Wedding Crashers & a Policy of Indiscriminate Killing

Fifteen people on their way to a wedding in Yemen were killed in an air strike after their party was mistaken for an al Qaeda convoy, local security officials said on Thursday.

The officials did not identify the plane in the strike in central al-Bayda province, but tribal and local media sources said that it was a drone.

“An air strike [...] hit a wedding car convoy, ten people were killed immediately and another five who were injured, died after being admitted to the hospital,” one security official said.

Hayden’s Note:

The CIA’s program of “targeted” drone killings in Pakistan’s tribal heartlands is politically counterproductive, kills large numbers of civilians, and undermines respect for international law, according to a report by US academics.

“The dominant narrative about the use of drones in Pakistan is of a surgically precise and effective tool that makes the US safer by enabling ‘targeted killings’ of terrorists, with minimal downsides or collateral impacts. This narrative is false,” the report, entitled Living Under Drones, states.

It is clear to see that our use of drones increases militant recruitment, as well as fueling hatred towards our Nation....

Predictive Programming: Africa as the New Boogeyman

Many times, in order to understand where one is headed, he needs to understand what is behind him.

With overwhelming opposition to armed intervention in Syria, the global elitists’ plans seem to have been delayed a bit, but fear not, their end game is not simply Syria. Long-term plans to topple Iran, as well as continue to move further south into Africa, seem to be the goal.

And for that to happen, the West needs to establish a larger support base among the American People. The West needs a new boogeyman, as the al-Qaeda ghoul has fallen apart now that mainstream news outlets are finally admitting that we give them money, weapons, communications equipment, and provide airstrikes for their operations. Once the Syria debacle hit the headlines, regular Joe Citizen finally started to realize just how much support the US is giving to admitted members of al-Qaeda, especially as they morph into the powerful al-Nusra Front in Syria.

But Africa lies ready and ripe for the picking, not only in resources, but in enemies. With the recent, well-publicized anniversary of the ‘Black Hawk Down’ incident in Somalia, and the shooting at the Westgate shopping mall in Nairobi, Kenya, we continue to see the African continent in the news....

“They are living beyond their means and shifting a part of the weight of their problems to the world economy. They are living like parasites off the global economy and their monopoly of the dollar. If [in America] there is a systemic malfunction, this will affect everyone. Countries like Russia and China hold a significant part of their reserves in American securities. There should be other reserve currencies.” – Vladimir Putin in 2011

While I hate to give such praise to a foreign leader, Putin has undoubtedly run rings around the moribund and bureaucratic incompetence of the Laurel and Hardy-style Obama and Kerry team on Syria. Putin diplomatically has the swiftness and stealth of the South’s Stonewall Jackson and Germany’s Erwin Rommel, probably the two greatest military commanders in world history.

What Really Happened on the Night of Friday, August 30th?

Former Fox news anchor, Ben Swann, takes a look at claims by Architects and Engineers for 9/11 Truth about why they say the official story on the collapse of Building 7 is not only untrue, but impossible.

For many of my readers, this is nothing new, but a new poll shows that more and more Americans are now rethinking the official story.

About Richard Gage, founder of Architects & Engineers for 9/11 Truth:

ae911truth

Richard Gage, AIA, is a San Francisco Bay Area architect of 25 years, a member of the American Institute of Architects, and the founder and CEO of AE911Truth.

Mr. Gage has worked on most types of building construction, including numerous fire-proofed, steel-framed buildings. Most recently, he worked on the construction documents for a $400M mixed-use urban project with 1.2 million square feet of retail, a parking structure, and 320,000 square feet of mid-rise office space—altogether with about 1,200 tons of steel framing....

SHTF Plan.com Editor-in-Chief Mac Slavo’s Note:

In the following analysis, Brandon Smith, of Alt Market, offers up one of the most insightful articles you’re likely to ever read on the potential sequence of events that may occur over the next several years. It lays out, step by step, how the global elite are positioning the chess pieces, the consequences for each and every one of us, and what we can do right now to insulate ourselves from the inevitability of the manufactured global collapse that will take place as we move forward. This is must-share information. Urge those closest to you to get a grasp of what’s happening and to prepare for it as best they can.

For years now, at Alt-Market (and Neithercorp.us), I have carefully outlined the most likely path of collapse to take place within the U.S., and a vital part of that analysis included economic destabilization caused by a loss of the dollar’s world reserve status and petro-status.  I have also always made clear that this fiscal crisis event would not occur in the midst of a political vacuum. ...

Ben Swann’s Full Disclosure: What the Media Isn’t Telling You About The War in Syria

A little bit about Ben Swann:

“I have spent 14 years working as a journalist in broadcast news.  I won’t bore you with all the details but suffice to say I began my career as a news photographer and moved up the ladder to reporter, morning anchor/reporter, prime time anchor/reporter.  Along the way I won two Emmy Awards and two Edward R. Murrow awards.  For a number of years I covered Mexico’s drug war.  At that time, I realized that national media was not interested in the truth of what was happening in Mexico or the problems associated with the failed “war on drugs” in the United States.

In 2010, I moved north to Cincinnati, Ohio to take a prime time anchor job with WXIX and there I became the producer/writer/anchor of a segment called “Reality Check”.  It was while covering the 2012 Republican Presidential primary that I began to confront the problems in the American electoral process, the stranglehold of America’s two party system and the suppression of voters’ choices by mainstream media....

Hayden’s Note: McCain Visits Syria, Meets with Terrorists, err… “Rebel Leaders”

Posted on May 29, 2013 in Global & National News, Police, Military, & War, Political Issues

The leaders of the Supreme Military Council of the Free Syrian Army told the senator they want the U.S. to provide arms, a no-fly zone, and strikes on Hezbollah.

Sen. John McCain Monday became the highest-ranking U.S. official to enter Syria since the bloody civil war there began more than two years ago, The Daily Beast has learned.

Hayden’s Note:

The “Syrian rebels”, as I’ve stated for a very long time, are mostly made up of guerrilla fighters, insurgents, and freelance mercenaries willing to fight for whomever pays. We saw this exact same operation in Libya, and again, the “rebels” received American support, including money, arms, logistics, communications, and air support. Many of those “rebels” were openly-admitted al-Qaeda members, some who had notoriously killed American soldiers only a year prior.

I understand that some of you are fiercely patriotic, but start questioning things like this. It is a direct violation of the National Defense Authorization Act to arm or support al-Qaeda members, as well as meeting the very definition of treason – “…to give aid or support to the enemy.”

Do you see the blatant lies here?

Hayden’s Note on the Connecticut Shootings, Dead Babies, and US Foreign Policy

Kevin Hayden – TruthisTreason.net

I was approached by a reader of the website last night who lamented on my lack of personal commentary lately.  He added that he had hoped to hear my opinions regarding the Presidential election and other current events, but that TruthisTreason.net had completely ignored politics recently.  I had to agree; I have intentionally avoided the typical political commentary because, quite frankly, I’m moved beyond that for the most part.  For years, I waved my signs, took part in street actions to raise awareness, wrote articles, and took part in the election cycle as a state delegate.

These days, I’ve simply let go of the stranglehold that politics has on so many Americans. It no longer concerns me because I feel as though we are too far gone to ever get back on track, and so aside from the occasional piece on national events, I doubt you’ll see “in-depth” coverage on the Left vs. Right Paradigm; the stage show known as American politics.

However,

In wake of today’s shooting events, I wanted to take a moment to share some opinions and perspectives on not only the direct topic, but the bigger picture, as well....

Pearl Harbor: a Noble Lie

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

Kevin Hayden – TruthisTreason.net

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....

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.

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

Kevin Hayden – TruthisTreason.net

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....

Washington Institute Suggests Using False Flag Terrorism to Increase Pressure on Iran

Last Friday, during the Washington Institute for Near East Policy forum luncheon on “How to Build US-Israeli Coordination on Preventing an Iranian Nuclear Breakout,” the director of research at the pro-Israel think tank hinted suggested that a Pearl Harbor-type attack false flag terrorism might be necessary to get the United States to go to war against the Islamic Republic.

“I frankly think that crisis initiation is really tough,” said Patrick Clawson, in response to a question about what would happen if negotiations with Tehran fail. “And it’s very hard for me to see how the United States … uh … President can get us to war with Iran.”

“So, if in fact the Iranians aren’t going to compromise,” the Israel lobbyist concluded with a smirk on his face, “it would be best if somebody else started the war.”

Other remarks include, “Look people, Iranian submarines periodically go down. Someday, one of them might not come up. ::shrugs shoulders:: Who would know why? ::stifled laughter::”

“We are in the game of using covert means against the Iranians.”

 

Hayden’s Note:

I’d like to point out the blatant war crimes and conspiring to commit murder that occurs in this video in reference to his idea of sinking an Iranian submarine, and his “Who cares?” attitude about the covert actions that are being conducted inside of a sovereign nation.

Death of the US Dollar Hegemony: Military Intervention, Oil Sales, and the Inevitable Collapse

Kevin Hayden – TruthisTreason.net

According to a recent report by Indy Media, Mexican crude oil will be sold to China without using the US dollar as its trading currency.  Sources inside the Mexican government refuse to disclose if they have been in secret negotiations with China over possible crude oil sales.

If you’re not familiar with the term petrodollar, or why a move such as this by China, Mexico, or Russia is of grave concern, allow me to give you a few points to consider and explain the situation –

In 1975, the members of OPEC agreed to sell oil only in US dollars.  This was for a variety of reasons, but chief among them was to maintain a need for US currency and maintain its reign as the global reserve.  Without this in America’s backpocket, I’m sure that the Dollar would have even less value, to put it mildly.

Greenspan, in his first speech after leaving as Chairman of the Fed, said that gold prices were up because of concern about terrorism, and not because of monetary concerns or because he created too many dollars during his tenure.

Clues Link US to New Computer Viruses; Draft of Cyber Security Executive Order “Leaked”

Researchers have found evidence suggesting that the United States may have developed three previously unknown computer viruses for use in espionage operations or cyber warfare.

For now, the two firms know very little about the newly identified viruses, except that one of them is currently deployed in the Middle East. They are not sure what the malicious software was designed to do.

Hayden’s Note:

Interesting timing for this piece of information to come to light.  Recently, a “leaked” draft of a cybersecurity Executive Order was plastered across the internet, indicating an attempt to intimidate and use heavy handed mob tactics to coerce certain members of Congress into approving the CISPA-like bills that resulted in tremendous public outcry and concern.  Here’s a bit more info -

Source: TechDirt

Earlier this week, we wrote about how the White House was working on an executive order to act as a “stand in” for cybersecurity legislation that has so far failed to pass Congress (CISPA passed in the House, but a different effort, the Cybersecurity Act, failed in the Senate, and it would have been difficult to get the two houses aligned anyway)....
