They've certainly transformed the U.S. military: of late the American government has gotten very good at extending its physical presence for the purpose of killing people. Ten years ago the Pentagon had about 50 drones in its fleet; currently it has some 7,500. More than a third of the aircraft in the Air Force's fleet are now unmanned. The U.S. military reported carrying out 447 drone attacks in Afghanistan in the first 11 months of 2012, up from 294 in all of 2011. Since President Obama took office, the U.S. has executed more than 300 covert drone attacks in Pakistan, a country with which we're not at war.
What Happens When Drones Return to America - TIME

Remember back in June when I said that Berkeley, Albany, and the University of California police departments all wanted those heavily armored Bearcats, made by Lenco Industries, but the Coalition for a Safe Berkeley stopped them?
Well never fear!
If we can't go at you from the ground, we'll come at you from the air!
"Better known as drones, Unmanned Aerial Vehicles piloted by military in the U.S. hunt and kill suspected enemy combatants abroad. Now the drones are coming home to beef up local law enforcement.
But people across the U.S. are pushing back, contending that domestic drones could invade personal privacy or chill free speech by monitoring political activities.
“They want to use it for intelligence gathering – that’s spying,” Linda Lye of the Northern California American Civil Liberties Union told media at a hastily called press conference Dec. 4 outside the Alameda County administration building in downtown Oakland."
Yep...that's Alameda County, home of Berkeley, Albany and the University of California, Berkeley.
Hey...I wonder if those bad boys can be programmed to home in on RFID chips.....?

You know how everyone calls the conspiracy theorists "idiots" (to put it mildly) when they suggest that the UN is a threat to the US and they could send troops in here?
Well this isn't exactly in the "boots on the ground" category but.....
"The head of the U.N. drug watchdog agency is urging U.S. federal officials to challenge ballot measures in Colorado and Washington that decriminalized possession of small amounts of marijuana for adults 21 and over.
Raymond Yans says the approvals send "a wrong message to the rest of the nation and it sends a wrong message abroad."
Now let's see if Attorney General Eric Holder caves to the UN....and if he does...what will Colorado and Washington's reaction be, seeing as how it was their people that voted to pass the measure.

Wanna see something kinda spooky?
Go to the Rockefeller Foundation website.
Go to Publications and download the PDF for "Scenarios for the Future of Technology and International Development"
Now go to page 34 and look at this....
"The years 2010 to 2020 were dubbed the “doom decade” for good reason: the 2012 Olympic bombing, which killed 13,000, was followed closely by an earthquake in Indonesia killing 40,000, a tsunami that almost wiped out Nicaragua, and the onset of the West China Famine, caused by a once-in-a-millennium drought linked to climate change."
Okay I know that this is all scenario planning, it clearly says that at the beginning of the PDF.
But it does feel a little spooky doesn't it?
Especially with all the looking back at the 9/11 foreshadowing that seemed to be there.
Of course if they predict and hit an earthquake and a tsunami 2 years in advance (the paper was written in 2010) we have a lot more to worry about than we thought!

Remember back in April I mentioned that Keene, New Hampshire had accepted a $285,933 grant from the U.S. Department of Homeland Security to purchase an eight-ton armored personnel vehicle called a Bearcat, made by Lenco Industries?
Well...the Berkeley, Albany, and the University of California police departments tried the same thing...but the Coalition for a Safe Berkeley gathered enough signatures on a petition to stop them.
Even Berkeley Mayor Tom Bates insisted the city reject police militarization!
For some strange reason, university spokeswoman Janet Gilmore said that "In a university setting, it’s not really appropriate" for police to operate an APC.
What's wrong with her?
What campus doesn't need their cops cruising around in a vehicle equipped with ballistic glass capable of withstanding multi-hits, blast-resistant floors, specially designed gunports, roof hatches/turret and agency specific equipment and/or modifications such as lights/sirens/battering ram/winches/thermal cameras and spot lights?
I mean it's not like Berkeley ever had any riots right?
BTW, the citizens of Keene are also fighting against their cops getting one too.

Riddle me this Batman...
When is a conspiracy theory not a conspiracy theory?
The Iowa City Owl reported a few days ago....
"Internet Buzzing Over Presumed Radiation Spike
Recently, many internet forums have been talking quite a bit about a presumed "cover-up" by the government of radiation levels spiking due to some unexplained occurrence that happened a few days ago near the Indiana and Michigan borders.
An incident near the borders of Indiana and Michigan in an area that is owned by the DOD has raised some eyebrows, especially where Internet forum operators have been concerned. They believe that something has happened, and nobody is talking about it except them.
One user on reddit.com provided a long list of information about the recent and incredibly spike in radiation levels and a reading that was retracted and called a "false alarm" by the EPA.
According to the user, a few days ago, a story was posted about radiation levels being between 2,000 and 7,000 CPM. The story was removed quickly, which sparked the user to do his own research on the situation. Anyone he contacted claimed that the reading was a malfunction of a detector and a false alarm, stating that he had nothing to worry about."
NOW we get this....
"Radiation Spike Follows Nuclear Reactor Leak
According to Reuters, a nuclear reactor in Michigan was shut down on Tuesday due to a leakage from a refueling water tank, according to a report from the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC), which the Reuters story did not provide a link to."
Oddly enough no MSM seems to be covering this at all.
As in even mentioning it.
