NSA “Listening Plates” Positioned in all 5 NYC Boroughs

“…In the last year New Yorkers from all five boroughs have seen the whirlwind erection of the supposed NSA listening plates. These plates adorn rooftops of both tenement and office buildings alike. They are clustered on the edges of buildings and on the sides of cedar water towers in groups ranging from two to a dozen. In every instance a bundle of black wires weave their way from the plates into small freshly built rooftop utility buildings. All plates share a common angle of approximately 15 degrees down towards the street…”

Little-Known Governement Data-Collection System Trolls News, Blogs, Email, even IMs

“…The core of this effort is a little-known system called Analysis, Dissemination, Visualization, Insight, and Semantic Enhancement (ADVISE). Only a few public documents mention it. ADVISE is a research and development program within the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), part of its three-year-old “Threat and Vulnerability, Testing and Assessment” portfolio. The TVTA received nearly $50 million in federal funding this year…”

“Many Americans are interested in where this North American partnership process is going,” said Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton.  “Given all that is at stake, the federal government has a responsibility to make sure this process is transparent and open to public scrutiny — so the release of these documents is an important step forward.”

The Five Pillars of the U.S. Military-Industrial Complex

“…The military-industrial complex needs wars, many and successive wars, to prosper. Old military equipment has to be repaired and replaced each time there is a hot war. But to justify the enormous costs of developing ever more deadly weapons, there needs to be a constant climate of fear and vulnerability. For example, there are many reports, originating from medical and international observers, that the Israeli attacks against Lebanon and Gaza during the summer of 2006, allowed for the use of ‘new American-made weapons.’ Such weapons are reported to include depleted uranium (DU) bombs, ‘direct energy’ weapons and new chemical and biological weapons. These weapons not only make the act of homicide easier but they also contaminate the environment with radioactive DU particles for decades to come…”

Secret “Not for Public Release” North American Union meeting in Banff, Alberta Canada

“…No major media reported on the conference–not The Globe and Mail, not the National Post, not the Toronto Star, no one. Yet the topic of the conference, deep integration or the formation of a “North American Community” aka the North American Union, will profoundly affect everything in our lives from our health and security to the currency we use (soon to be the “Amero”) to our very national identity. In essence, we will no longer be Canadians, but North Americans only–and worse, North Americans hog-tied in lock-step with the U.S. even as they gain open access to our energy resources…”

Chavez to the UN: “Rise Up Against the Empire”

“…I think we could call a psychiatrist to analyze yesterday’s statement made by the president of the United States. As the spokesman of imperialism, he came to share his nostrums, to try to preserve the current pattern of domination, exploitation and pillage of the peoples of the world…”

Scholars For 9/11 Truth Assailed

“…the government is becoming desperate in its efforts to keep the truth about 9/11 from the American people,” said James H. Fetzer, the founder and co-chair of the society. “But I don’t think it’s working.” Fetzer finds attacks on faculty members, including Kevin Barrett, a humanities instructor at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, Bill Woodward, a professor of psychology at the University of New Hampshire, and Steven Jones, a physics professor at Brigham Young University and the society’s co-chair, especially disturbing….”

11 Unmanned Sub-Space Dirigible Airships to Provide Surveillance of Continental US

“…According to the North American Aerospace Defense Command (NORAD), 11 high-altitude airships would provide overlapping radar coverage of all maritime and southern border approaches to the continental U.S., and may be a significant asset in homeland defense efforts. The Stratospheric Platform System (SPS) dirigible operates just barely within the outer limits of the earth’s atmosphere and is emerging as part of the military’s 21st century transformational mindset….”

Senate Puts Another Nail in the Coffin of the 4th

“…As noted here on numerous occasions, the government has snooped in earnest on Americans for decades, beginning officially with the creation of the National Security state on November 4, 1952, and authorized earlier in a letter written by President Harry S. Truman in June of 1952. From the beginning, the NSA and the CIA have worked closely with telecoms, a fact highlighted recently with NSA snooping revelations. Now we are told Verizon executive vice president and general counsel William P. Barr began his career as a CIA “analyst” in the 1970s and went “on to become an assistant legislative counsel for the agency,” according to Brian Beutler, writing for Raw Story…”
