It Is Now Official: The U.S. Is a Police State
Americans have been losing the protection of law for years. In the 21st century the loss of legal protections accelerated with the Bush administration’s “war on terror,” which continues under the Obama administration and is essentially a war on the Constitution and U.S. civil liberties.
The Bush regime was determined to vitiate habeas corpus in order to hold people indefinitely without bringing charges. The regime had acquired hundreds of prisoners by paying a bounty for terrorists. Afghan warlords and thugs responded to the financial incentive by grabbing unprotected people and selling them to the Americans.
The Bush regime needed to hold the prisoners without charges because it had no evidence against the people and did not want to admit that the U.S. government had stupidly paid warlords and thugs to kidnap innocent people. In addition, the Bush regime needed “terrorists” prisoners in order to prove that there was a terrorist threat.
As there was no evidence against the “detainees” (most have been released without charges after years of detention and abuse), the U.S. government needed a way around U.S. and international laws against torture in order that the government could produce evidence via self-incrimination. The Bush regime found inhumane and totalitarian-minded lawyers and put them to work at the U.S. Department of Justice (sic) to invent arguments that the Bush regime did not need to obey the law.
The Bush regime created a new classification for its detainees that it used to justify denying legal protection and due process to the detainees. As the detainees were not U.S. citizens and were demonized by the regime as “the 760 most dangerous men on earth,” there was little public outcry over the regime’s unconstitutional and inhumane actions.
As our Founding Fathers and a long list of scholars warned, once civil liberties are breached, they are breached for all. Soon U.S. citizens were being held indefinitely in violation of their habeas corpus rights. Dr. Aafia Siddiqui, an American citizen of Pakistani origin, might have been the first.
Dr. Siddiqui, a scientist educated at MIT and Brandeis University, was seized in Pakistan for no known reason, sent to Afghanistan, and was held secretly for five years in the U.S. military’s notorious Bagram prison in Afghanistan. Her three young children, one an 8-month-old baby, were with her at the time she was abducted. She has no idea what has become of her two youngest children. Her oldest child, 7 years old, was also incarcerated in Bagram and subjected to similar abuse and horrors.
Siddiqui has never been charged with any terrorism-related offense. A British journalist, hearing her piercing screams as she was being tortured, disclosed her presence. www.informationclearinghouse.info/article24605.htm.  An embarrassed U.S. government responded to the disclosure by sending Siddiqui to the U.S. for trial on the trumped-up charge that while a captive, she grabbed a U.S. soldier’s rifle and fired two shots attempting to shoot him. The charge apparently originated as a U.S. soldier’s excuse for shooting Dr. Siddiqui twice in the stomach resulting in her near death.
On Feb. 4, Dr. Siddiqui was convicted by a New York jury for attempted murder. The only evidence presented against her was the charge itself and an unsubstantiated claim that she had once taken a pistol-firing course at an American firing range.
No evidence was presented of her fingerprints on the rifle that this frail and broken 100-pound woman had allegedly seized from an American soldier. No evidence was presented that a weapon was fired, no bullets, no shell casings, no bullet holes. Just an accusation.
Wikipedia has this to say about the trial: “The trial took an unusual turn when an FBI official asserted that the fingerprints taken from the rifle, which was purportedly used by Aafia to shoot at the U.S. interrogators, did not match hers.”
An ignorant and bigoted American jury convicted her for being a Muslim. This is the kind of “justice” that always results when the state hypes fear and demonizes a group.
The people who should have been on trial are the people who abducted her, disappeared her young children, shipped her across international borders, violated her civil liberties, tortured her apparently for the fun of it, raped her, and attempted to murder her with two gunshots to her stomach. Instead, the victim was put on trial and convicted.
This is the unmistakable hallmark of a police state. And this victim is an American citizen.
Anyone can be next. Indeed, on Feb. 3 Dennis Blair, director of National Intelligence told the House Intelligence Committee that it was now “defined policy” that the U.S. government can murder its own citizens on the sole basis of someone in the government’s judgment that an American is a threat. No arrest, no trial, no conviction, just execution on suspicion of being a threat.
This shows how far the police state has advanced. A presidential appointee in the Obama administration tells an important committee of Congress that the executive branch has decided that it can murder American citizens abroad if it thinks they are a threat.
I can hear readers saying the government might as well kill Americans abroad as it kills them at home—Waco, Ruby Ridge, the Black Panthers.
Yes, the U.S. government has murdered its citizens, but Dennis Blair’s “defined policy” is a bold new development. The government, of course, denies that it intended to kill the Branch Davidians, Randy Weaver’s wife and child, or the Black Panthers. The government says that Waco was a terrible tragedy, an unintended result brought on by the Branch Davidians themselves. The government says that Ruby Ridge was Randy Weaver’s fault for not appearing in court on a day that had been miscommunicated to him. The Black Panthers, the government says, were dangerous criminals who insisted on a shoot-out.
In no previous death of a U.S. citizen by the hands of the U.S. government has the government claimed the right to kill Americans without arrest, trial, and conviction of a capital crime.
In contrast, Dennis Blair has told the U.S. Congress that the executive branch has assumed the right to murder Americans who it deems a “threat.”
What defines “threat”? Who will make the decision? What it means is that the government will murder whomever it chooses.
There is no more complete or compelling evidence of a police state than the government announcing that it will murder its own citizens if it views them as a “threat.”
Ironic, isn’t it, that “the war on terror” to make us safe ends in a police state with the government declaring the right to murder American citizens whom it regards as a threat.

REMEMBER FACT CHECK SAYS THEY DONT CARRY GUNS BUT IT LOOKS LIKE GUNS TO ME

Did the Department of Homeland Security create a “standing army of government youth” known as FEMA Corps.
A: No. FEMA Corps is a civilian operation within AmeriCorps, a federal community service program. FEMA Corps prepares and responds to disasters. Its members, ages 18 to 24, carry no weapons.

FULL QUESTION
Tell me this is not true.
Homeland Security Graduates First Corps Of Obama’s Brown Shirts – Homeland Youth
Monday, October 15, 2012 18:51
October 7, 2012. Vicksburg . The federal government calls them FEMA Corps. But they conjure up memories of the Hitler Youth of 1930’s Germany . Regardless of their name, the Dept of Homeland Security has just graduated its first class of 231 Homeland Youth. Kids, aged 18-24 and recruited from the President’s AmeriCorp volunteers, they represent the first wave of DHS’s youth corps, designed specifically to create a full time, paid, standing army of FEMA Youth across the country.

On September 13, 2012, the Dept of Homeland Security graduated its first class of FEMA Corps youth, aka the Homeland Youth. Image courtesy of DHS.gov.

FULL ANSWER
A few readers sent us this email, which dresses up conspiracy theories with unrelated photographs and selected snippets from a government press release.
The gist of the email is that the federal government is stockpiling bullets, instituting martial law and arming youths in President Barack Obama’s army of “Brown Shirts” — none of which is true.
The email attributes the source of the information to an article on www.itmakessenseblog.com. The site’s “We Believe” page claims that “Left wing progressives have infiltrated both the Democrat and Republican Party.” It also says: “modern liberalism and progressivism may still both support many of the same Socialistic, Communistic or Maoist policies.”
The email’s link to the article is broken. And the site no longer carries the article. But the blog has published other pieces that similarly warn of Obama’s ” ‘brown shirt’ brigades” or “civilian national security force.”
This email is the most recent incarnation of a claim we debunked in 2008 and 2010. The conspiracy theory stems from a 2008 speech that then-candidate Obama gave in Colorado. He talked about building up “a civilian national security force that’s just as powerful, just as strong, just as well-funded” as our military force.
But the doomsayers leave out the context: Obama was proposing strengthening civilian programs such as the State Department’s foreign service, the Peace Corps and AmeriCorps. Not surprisingly, this latest claim describes FEMA Corps, a new unit of AmeriCorps, as an “army.”
‘Army of Government Youth’?
The email says the Department of Homeland Security created a “paid, full time, standing army of government youth.” And the email quotes — correctly — from a DHS press release announcing FEMA Corps’ first graduating class. But that’s about all the email gets right.
It contains a photo of young persons dressed in blue uniforms and holding air-soft guns, replicas that fire plastic pellets and are identifiable by their federally required orange tips. That’s the first sign this is no “standing army.”
And the photo comes not from DHS — as the email claims — but from a 2009 New York Times article. The story is about a law enforcement education program that is affiliated with the Boy Scouts of America and has nothing to do with FEMA Corps.
The Law Enforcement Exploring program teaches crime-fighting skills to persons between the ages of 14 and 20 who are considering a career in law enforcement. The Times profiled a southern California chapter that partnered with U.S. Border Patrol and local police. They simulated a raid on a marijuana field, which the newspaper photographed.
FEMA Corps, on the other hand, is a civilian operation for persons between the ages of 18 and 24. It is a unit within AmeriCorps, a community service program.
FEMA Corps, which will grow to 1,600 members, is solely devoted to preparing for and responding to disasters. Corps members work with the Federal Emergency Management Agency, which dispatches them to disaster areas. They recently helped Hurricane Sandy victims in Long Beach, N.Y., registering them for federal assistance.
They do not carry guns — much less travel in armored fighting vehicles. In fact, the AmeriCorps handbook, which applies to FEMA Corps, prohibits members from possessing firearms or any other weapon.
The email, nonetheless, attempts to connect FEMA Corps to an overblown claim about the government’s recent ammunition purchases.
Bullet Baloney
The email cites a “drastic spike” in the Department of Homeland Security’s bullet purchases and asks: “What is the US federal government preparing for?” The email also claims that “federal management agencies are looking more and more like a military army every day.”
DHS has indeed ordered hundreds of millions of rounds of ammunition. But there is less here than meets the eye. And that’s according to the National Rifle Association and the office of Republican Congressman Lynn Westmoreland of Georgia.
The Department of Homeland Security recently contracted to buy up to 450 million rounds over the next five years. But DHS was making a first-time bulk order for all of its law enforcement agencies to save money. Those agencies include the Secret Service, the Transportation Security Administration and U.S. Customs and Border Enforcement, among many others.
The NRA describes the assertion as “incendiary.” It says the suggestion that the Obama administration is “preparing for a war with the American people” displays “a lack of understanding of the law enforcement functions carried about by officers in small federal agencies.” The NRA, which is no fan of the Democratic president, concludes that “there is no need to invent additional threats to our rights.”
‘Martial Law’ Malarkey
The email also links FEMA Corps to the false claim that Obama issued executive orders that institute martial law and give unchecked powers to FEMA.
As we’ve written before, Obama’s orders do no such thing. He issued one executive order that exercised his office’s power to prepare the nation for an emergency.
Since the Korean War, Congress has granted the president the authority to make sure national resources — such as the food supply and various industries — will be available to meet national security needs in times of war and other emergencies. That power is granted under the Defense Production Act, a law that dates to 1950 and must be reauthorized by Congress every few years. (The act expires in 2014.)
Like presidents before him, Obama issued an order updating the resources covered under that act while delegating authority over those resources to various federal departments and agencies. For example, the order authorizes the secretaries of Defense and the Interior “to encourage the exploration, development, and mining of strategic and critical materials and other materials.”
The order doesn’t institute martial law. It doesn’t even mention FEMA.

Fox News Confirms CIA Operators Had Laser Designators On Targets During Benghazi Attack, Waited For Air Cover That Never Came…

Fox News Confirms CIA Operators Had Laser Designators On Targets During Benghazi Attack, Waited For Air Cover That Never Came…

The US SEALs had laser capability and for 5 hours and 15 minutes were wondering when the air support would show up.
But it never came.
Obama never made the order.

Tyrone Woods begged for air support on 9-11 before his death.
It never came.
FOX News reported:
Sources who have debriefed the team that was at the CIA annex the night of the attack in Benghazi say that the CIA operators from the Global Response Staff, or GRS, were equipped with Mark 48 machine guns and had two types of laser capability. Each weapon had both a “passive” as well as a “visible” laser that could be used against the Libyan attackers.
The presence of laser capability on the roof of the CIA annex confirms what Fox News sources that night in Benghazi originally said, which is that they had laser capability and for 5 hours and 15 minutes were wondering where the usual overhead air support was, especially since, according to this source, they radioed from the annex beginning as early as midnight asking for it.
The presence of lasers raises more questions about why air support was not sent to Benghazi even protectively once it became clear that the fighting had followed the CIA rescue team back to the annex.
The heroes on the ground called for help – Obama did nothing.

A Future World Where Drones Engage in Wholesale Surveillance & Dominate US Airspace


A Future World Where Drones Engage in Wholesale Surveillance & Dominate US Airspace

By: Tuesday January 15, 2013 12:32 pm

"Drones & Domestic Surveillance" panel event at the National Press Club in DC
Drones are becoming much cheaper and easier to use, a reality that increases the possibility that the technology will become much more ubiquitous. With this kind of proliferation in mind, the Electronic Privacy Information Center (EPIC) held a panel discussion at the National Press Club on drones being a critical privacy issue in 2013.
Amie Stepanovich, an EPIC privacy attorney who has testified before Congress on this issue twice, said estimates indicate there could be up to 30,000 drones in US airspace by 2020 under legislation just passed. The current state of the law is inadequate to address the threat posed to privacy. There should be warrant standards, data use & retention limitations and transparency requirements passed into law.
Currently, the courts consider each individual type of technology and apply constitutional standards to the use of such technology. Each piece of technology carries the threshold of when a person would “reasonably expect” privacy. Laura Donohue, a Georgetown Law School professor, highlighted how the Fourth Amendment does not contemplate the use of drones for continuous surveillance. Fourth Amendment was developed under the presumption that public space would be an open field and when people are in public space they would lose an expectation of privacy. It is next to impossible under current understandings of the law to apply the Fourth Amendment to the use of drones, which is why legislation of Congress is necessary.
Orin Kerr, a George Washington Law University professor, largely concurred. If surveillance is being conducted from US airspace, he said there are typically no Fourth Amendment issues.
Both Bruce Schneier, who publishes writing on security issues and topics at “Schneier on Security,” and Julian Sanchez of the CATO Institute urged the audience to consider the future instead of only the present day. To communicate the kind of transformation that the world could potentially undergo, Sanchez used a story to describe how there could be an armada of drones flying around one day monitoring all people to catch whomever might do something wrong. The reason why he raised this notion was not necessarily because it could or will happen but because, in his opinion, the public is good at addressing surveillance in terms of individual intrusions of privacy but rarely does the public consider how the scale of surveillance could impact civilization.

In public space, a person knows when their privacy could be intruded. Drones change that by making surveillance of a person possible in all areas of society, Sanchez explained.
Schneier suggested Americans should have conversations about the laws and regulations they would want to have in a world of drones now instead of later. It is very easy to say that there are certain capabilities that drones just do not have yet or that they are not used predominantly and in ways that are authoritarian. However, that does not mean that they could not or would not ever. The drift—the reality that people could be more accepting of certain uses when the technology is normalized—should be prepared for now rather than later when there are few patents and vested interests have not fully developed.
The public should realize that the surveillance from drones may not be as threatening to privacy as suggested. However, worse violations and intrusions may be made possible by drones being used along with cell phone technology or data retention, etc.
Donohue spoke about the convergence of biometrics and facial recognition technology with drones. This could be used by the FBI and other agencies in government, like the Defense Department. Databases could be converged to enable interoperability among government agencies. A world where this happened often would be a world where drones could be gathering information on multiple people at a distance in public without notice or consent on a continual basis. Unlike how biometrics are used now, where people know they are being used on them and there is usually some level of consent, that would not be the case with drones.
There is a Drone Lobby and it will be tremendously powerful. Gretchen West of Association for Unmanned Vehicle Systems International (AUVSI) spoke at the event about the benefits of drones, how it could create tens of thousands of jobs and downplayed privacy issues. She said that only in the United States are drones perceived as such a critical privacy issue, complete nonsense that marginalizes foreign persons while at the same time suggesting privacy advocates are unreasonable. She added the FAA should not be involved in managing privacy guidelines that could be applied to drone operators (EPIC disagrees).
People like West, who engages in advocacy for corporations and businesses in the growing drone industry, will have much more power to influence Congress in the coming years. Right now, congressmen are hearing from constituents who are understandably concerned and they are offering legislation to regulate drone use. Rep. Ed Markey, a Democrat, has proposed a bill to “require privacy considerations for drone licenses” and “create public website that list all approved drone licenses.”
Rep. Ted Poe, a Republican, introduced legislation during the previous session to “provide for limitations on the domestic use of drones in investigating regulatory and criminal offenses, and for other purposes.” He addressed the audience at the event today and argued there should be definite guidelines for law enforcement on what they can and cannot do. Fourth Amendment standards should be applied to the use of drones. The right to privacy should be protected, and warrants should be required except under “exigent circumstances” that already exist in current law. (There was no Democratic Representative at the event, though Rep. Zoe Lofgren was invited and Rep. Markey sent a staffer.)
Of course, one doubts the ability of Congress to pass anything that could meaningfully protect privacy rights. There is an immense amount of secrecy around this issue right now. Groups like EPIC, the Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF) and the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) have submitted FOIA requests and are waiting for a response. This may even be the case for some members of Congress that have been interested in how law enforcement plans to use the technology.
The government will not share details on how it plans to deal with the proliferation of drones. That is because it wants to give businesses and law enforcement wide latitude for their use. So, if the public is concerned about threats to privacy, there will have to be a groundswell of concern and opposition to pushing ahead without establishing privacy protections.

Homeland Security graduates first Corps of Obama’s Brown Shirts – Homeland Youth

Homeland Security graduates first Corps of Obama’s Brown Shirts – Homeland Youth











The federal government calls them FEMA Corps. But they conjure up memories of the Hitler Youth of 1930’s Germany. Regardless of their name, the Dept of Homeland Security has just graduated its first class of 231 Homeland Youth. Kids, aged 18-24 and recruited from the President’s AmeriCorp volunteers, they represent the first wave of DHS’s youth corps, designed specifically to create a full time, paid, standing army of FEMA Youth across the country.
On September 13, 2012, the Department of Homeland Security graduated its first class of FEMA Corps first-responders. While the idea of having a volunteer force of tens of thousands of volunteers scattered across the country to aid in times of natural disasters sounds great, the details and timing of this new government army is somewhat curious, if not disturbing.
DHS raising an armed army
The first problem one finds with this ‘new army’ is the fact that they are mere children. Yes, 18 is generally the legal age a person can sign a contract, join the military or be tried as an adult. But ask any parent – an 18, 20 or even a 24 year-old is still a na├»ve, readily-influenced kid.
The second problem with this announcement and program is its timing. Over the past two years, President Obama has signed a number of Executive Orders suspending all civil and Constitutional rights and turning over management of an America under Martial Law to FEMA. Also in that time, domestic federal agencies under DHS, including FEMA, have ordered billions of rounds of ammunition as well as the corresponding firearms. Admittedly, these new weapons and ammunition aren’t to be used in some far-off war or to fight forest fires in California, but right here on the streets of America.
Strange Armored Fighting Vehicles
Individuals around the US have begun reporting the site of strange, new, heavily-armed FEMA fighting vehicles. What would a disaster relief agency like FEMA need with 2,500 brand new GLS armored fighting vehicles? According to the agency’s own mandate, as well as President Obama’s recent Executive Order, the answer is ‘population control’ during a time of Martial Law.
One set of images made available by Rense.com shows trailer after trailer carrying these new DHS and FEMA armored fighting vehicles, complete with machine gun slots. They’re labeled with the usual backward American flag and the title, ‘Homeland Security’. Below that and the DHS logo, it also reads, ‘Immigration & Customs Enforcement’. Joining those markings, the black vehicles with white lettering also display ‘POLICE/RESCUE’ on one side and ‘Special Response Team’ on the other.
FEMA Corps
FEMA Deputy Administrator Rich Serino gave the keynote address at the ‘Induction Ceremony’ for the inaugural class of FEMA Corps members. According to the DHS website, ‘Corps members assist with disaster preparedness, response, and recovery activities, providing support in areas ranging from working directly with disaster survivors to supporting disaster recovering centers to sharing valuable disaster preparedness and mitigation information with the public.’
Serino describes what the first FEMA Corps class has accomplished so far, as well as where they’ll be going next:
‘Yesterday, we welcomed 231 energetic members into the first ever FEMA Corps class. The members just finished off their first month of training with our partners at the Corporation for National and Community Service (CNCS) and are one step closer to working in the field on disaster response and recovery. They will now head to FEMA’s Center for Domestic Preparedness to spend the next two weeks training in their FEMA position-specific roles. Once they complete both the CNCS and FEMA training, these 231 dedicated FEMA Corps members will be qualified to work in one of a variety of disaster related roles, ranging from Community Relations to Disaster Recovery Center support.’
A standing army
Unlike most local disaster response teams who are volunteers, training periodically and only showing up when there’s a disaster, the FEMA Corps will be a paid, full time, standing army of government youth. FEMA Deputy Administrator Sarino goes on to explain, ‘The new members, who range in age from 18-24 years old, will contribute to a dedicated, trained, and reliable disaster workforce by working full-time for ten months on federal disaster response and recovery efforts.’
In closing his announcement of the first graduating class of FEMA Corps Youth, Sarino describes his and the agency’s vision of the future, one where ‘FEMA Corps sets the foundation for a new generation of emergency managers’.
DHS arms itself
As we detailed in the August 28 Whiteout Press article ‘History of DHS Ammunition Purchases’, federal emergency management agencies are looking more and more like a military army every day.
The federal government’s procurement website actually lists DHS’ requests for bids to supply it with ammunition and military weaponry. All of the orders listed in the above article, including the orders for hundreds of millions of rounds of ammunition, are publicly available at http://www.fbo.gov.
One look at a chart of DHS ammunition purchases over the past decade reveals a drastic spike in orders of bullets recently, totaling in the billions of rounds. Other charts available online show a similar drastic spike in the purchases of accompanying weaponry by the Department of Homeland Security.
What is the US federal government preparing for? And why does it feel it needs an army of brainwashed youth, millions of guns, thousands of armored fighting vehicles and literally billions of rounds of ammunition, just to provide relief to the American people during a natural disaster? Any historian will tell you it sounds more like the arming of the Hitler Youth than an army of first responders fighting forest fires and hurricanes.

Testimony from a Mombasa science teacher and the Mombasa Registrar of births that Obama's birth certificate from Mombasa is genuine. A copy of President Obama's birth certificate that Lucas Smith obtained through the help of a Kenyan Colonel who got it recently directly from the Coast General Hospital in Mombasa , Kenya .

Tom Fife in the American Free Press was in Moscow in 1992 where a member of the Russian Academy of Sciences stated they had trained a Barack Obama as a communist and atheist and he will make easier the triumph of communism over the USA. The article is at the bottom of this home page regarding the birth of Barack Hussein Obama II in Mombasa , Kenya. Grandmother of President Barack Hussein Obama, Jr. reveals below the story of his birth in Mombasa, Kenya , a seaport, after his mother suffered labor pains while swimming at ocean beach in Mombasa.

"On August 4, 1961 Obama's mother, father and grandmother were attending a Muslim festival in Mombassa , Kenya . Mother had been refused entry to airplanes due to her 9 month pregnancy. It was a hot August day at the festival so the Obama's went to the beach to cool off. While swimming in the ocean his mother experienced labor pains so was rushed to the Coast Provincial General Hospital, Mombasa, Kenya where Obama was born a few hours later at 7:21pm on August 4, 1961. Four days later his mother flew to Hawaii and registered his birth in Honolulu as a certificate of live birth which omitted the place and hospital of birth."
The local Imam in Mombasa named Barack with his middle name Hussein so his official name on his certificate of live birth below is Barack Hussein Obama, II.

Barack Hussein Obama is the first U.S. president born in Africa at the Coast Provincial
General Hospital, Mombasa, Kenya. The Hawaii Certificate of Live Birth below is a

In USA all births are registered by hospitals and not by mothers.
No hospital of birth is listed nor is this a birth certificate.

Letter from Kitau in Mombasa , Kenya .

I happen to be Kenyan. I was born 1 month before Obama at Mombasa medical center. I am a teacher here at the MM Shaw Primary School in Kenya . I compared my birth certificate to the one that has been put on by Taitz and mine is exactly the same.
I even have the same registrar and format. The type is identical.
I am by nature a skeptical person. I teach science here and challenge most things that cannot be proven.
So I went to an official registrar today and pulled up the picture on the web. They magnified it and determined it to be authentic. There is even a plaque with Registrar Lavenders name on it as he was a Brit and was in charge of the Registrar office from 1959 until January of 1964.
The reason the date on the certificate says republic of Kenya is that we were a republic when the "copy" of the original was ordered. I stress the word "copy". My copy also has republic of Kenya .
So what you say is true about Kenya not being a republic at the time of Obama's birth, however it was a republic when the copy was ordered.

The birth certificate is genuine. I assure you it will be authenticated by a forensic auditor. We are very proud Obama was born here.
We have a shrine for him and there are many people who remember his birth here as he had a white mother. They are being interviewed now by one of your media outlets.

Fortunately they even have pictures of his parents with him immediately after his birth at the Mombasa
hospital with the hospital in the back ground.
It will be a proud day for us when it is proven that he was born here and a Kenyan became the most powerful man in the world.
I encourage anyone to come here and visit. I will be happy to take you and show you the pictures at the hospital myself as well as my document and many others that are identical to what Taitz posted.

God Bless.

Scientists Find Life in the Cold and Dark Under Antarctic Ice

Scientists Find Life in the Cold and Dark Under Antarctic Ice



For the first time, scientists report, they have found bacteria living in the cold and dark deep under the Antarctic ice, a discovery that might advance knowledge of how life could survive on other planets or moons and that offers the first glimpse of a vast ecosystem of microscopic life in underground lakes in Antarctica.

Science Times Podcast

This week: Antarctica’s buried lakes may yield clues to extraterrestrial life; passionate love beyond the first sparks; and the science behind why we slack off until the last minute.
@nytimesscience on Twitter.
Like the science desk on Facebook.
A network of hundreds of lakes lies sandwiched between the continent’s land and the ice that covers it, and scientists had thought that it could harbor life. The discovery is the first confirmation.
“It transforms the way we view the Antarctic continent,” said John C. Priscu of Montana State University, a leader of the scientific expedition.
After drilling through a half-mile of ice into the 23-square-mile, 5-foot-deep Lake Whillans, the expedition scientists recovered water and sediment samples that showed clear signs of life, Dr. Priscu said, speaking from McMurdo Station in Antarctica on Tuesday. They saw cells under a microscope, and chemical tests showed that the cells were alive and metabolizing energy.
Dr. Priscu said that every precaution had been taken to prevent contamination of the lake with bacteria from the surface or the overlying ice. In addition, he said, the concentrations of life were higher in the lake than in the borehole, and there were signs of life in the lake bottom’s sediment, which would be sealed off from contamination.
Much more study, including DNA analysis, is needed to determine what kinds of bacteria have been found and how they live, Dr. Priscu said. There is no sunlight, so the bacteria must depend on organic material that has drifted into the lake from other sources — for instance, decaying microbes from melting glaciers — or on minerals in the rock of the Antarctic continent.
Chris McKay, a NASA senior scientist, said in an e-mail that such analysis could determine if the bacteria in Lake Whillans have implications for the possible discovery of extraterrestrial life. “If it was using a local energy source, it would be interesting,” he said. “If it’s just consuming organics carried in from elsewhere, it is of much less interest.” The reason, he said, is that elsewhere in the solar system where there is good evidence of liquid water under thick ice sheets, life would have to depend on minerals alone. “There is not going to be oxygen on other worlds,” Mr. McKay said.
Slawek Tulaczyk of the University of California, Santa Cruz, another leader of the science expedition, said that samples were drawn from as deep as four feet in the sediment, and that oxygen decreased with the depth of the sample.
The scientific project, called Wissard, for Whillans Ice Stream Subglacial Access Research Drilling, was years in the planning and is one of three efforts to investigate the lakes that lie under the Antarctic ice.
A year ago, a Russian expedition penetrated the surface of Lake Vostok, under two miles of ice. They found hints of life on samples from the drill bit, but contamination from the kerosene drilling fluid was a possibility. This year they recovered samples of frozen lake water that are yet to be analyzed.
A British effort to reach Lake Ellsworth, under a mile of ice, was called off in December because of equipment problems.
The American effort, supported by $10 million from the National Science Foundation and other grants, focused on Lake Whillans, which is quite different from the other two lakes. It lies under a half-mile of ice, less than the others, and its water is replenished in about a decade, scientists believe, with meltwater from overlying ice. Lake Vostok is much more sealed off from the surface and is thought to take 10,000 years for its waters to renew. Lake Ellsworth may turn over in about 700 years.
Although Lake Whillans may be more reachable than the other two, doing anything in Antarctica is enormously difficult. It took a tractor convoy 12 days to take the drill and other equipment more than 500 miles over the Ross Ice Shelf to the drilling site from the American research station at McMurdo.
The scientists had four days to collect samples and obtain images of the lake. Several lines of evidence convinced them that they had found microbial life in the lake. First, they saw cells under the microscope and confirmed that DNA was present.
Then they measured evidence of an enzyme that is important in metabolism and a chemical called ATP, for adenosine triphosphate. Molecules of ATP are essentially packets of energy, and their presence was a further indication that the bacteria were living. Further, they found that concentrations of ATP were higher in the lake water than in the water in the borehole, which, Dr. Priscu said, meant that there was more life in the lake and argued against any contamination.
Much further study will be done before scientific results are published and other scientists can look at all the data. Dr. Priscu said that new tests were being done each day, but that DNA tests would have to wait until the scientists returned to the United States.
“Our stateside DNA sequence work will tell us who they are,” he said of the microbes, “and, together with other experiments, tell us how they make a living.”
But he said he was confident that the researchers had achieved the first glimpse of an ecosystem that had been completely unknown. “It’s the world’s largest wetland,” Dr. Priscu said.

DHS IS OBAMA KILLERS THEY KILL FOR OBAMA

DHS Set to Use Smaller and Smaller Spy Drones Against the American People

By Shepard Ambellas
theintelhub.com
October 8, 2012
With technology in overdrive, “Big Brother” has something in store for you and the rest of the American people.
In the coming months the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) plans to utilize smaller drones to spy on sporting events and other public events.
These new drones will be durable, portable, and assemble on-the-fly within minutes giving DHS an upper hand in fighting terror (and simply spying on American citizens).
Wired reported;
Like many in the military experimenting with drone miniaturization, DHS is thinking small. The drones it wants to bring to Fort Sill will ideally be launched by hand, like the Army and Marines’ Raven. They should weigh under 25 pounds.
Assembly should take a matter of minutes, and training for their remote pilots and technician a matter of days. DHS isn’t looking for drones that can loiter over an area for a long time: just 30 minutes to two hours, a hint that the department doesn’t foresee drones becoming a primary surveillance tool.
“Law enforcement operations, search and rescue, and fire and hazardous material spill response” are some of the potential drone missions the RAPS program envisions.
Still, it’s something of a turnaround for DHS. Back in January 2011, Ruth Doherty, a DHS science & tech official, expressed skepticism about using drones to patrol for signs of terrorism or to protect big public events like the Super Bowl.
A case has to be made that they’re economically feasible, not intrusive and acceptable to the public,” Doherty told Danger Room at a D.C. conference. In addition to the potential public outcry, drones have been a headache for DHS at times.
A DHS ground station in 2010 lost communications with one of the first Predators it used to surveil the southern U.S. border, and the department has had trouble finding enough pilots and technicians to operate its initial drone fleet.
Police shops around the country have only recently begun flying surveillance drones, owing in part to cumbersome Federal Aviation Administration restrictions designed to prevent the robots from slamming into commercial passenger aircraft.
That could be an issue for DHS as well. The RAPS drones need a threshold altitude of 1000 feet, well into helicopter territory — above the tops of most skyscrapers — and comparable to the heights reached by “Flying Beer Keg” flown by the Miami-Dade police department.
With most police department techies drooling over these gadgets, I’m sure small spy drones will be on the rise.
Another intelhub.com article points out;
When you smack a fly and it hits against the wall, does it ping?
Let the field tests begin.
‘Field tests?’ You say.
We are now dealing with a new enemy in the surveillance class, something almost unfathomable to grasp the more you ponder — something that will change the way you think and live.
Ladies and Gentlemen I give you ‘The Insect Drone’.
The following tip was submitted via tips@theintelhub.com;
I just read the tip report regarding unmarked black helicopters posted attheintelhub.com and have witnessed the same as described in the report including the stated timeline.

CH-47 Chinook
I started seeing the black helicopters (Boeing CH-47 Chinook) last summer as well with the most recent sighting occurring January 8, 2012 (see attached photo).
This one looked similar to the picture above (the only difference being it was black in color and had no markings and at one point was flying fairly low across the area).
They have a different sound to them that is what drew everyone to step out, after seeing what it was I ran inside to grab a camera couldn’t find one so I grabbed my cell phone to take a picture, it was headed southeast and had flown away quite a distance by the time I made my way back outside. I included a cropped version of the original and added an arrow to indicate its location in the photo (see photo below).

This has been happening frequently.
In fact, they fly so low at times that it was possible to see that the pilots inside the chopper were wearing black military looking gear and what looked like headsets and dark glasses.
However, black helicopters aren’t the only things flying around lately there is something else that is so strange and ominous.
In August 2010 I was sitting in my backyard when I noticed a “flock” of strange looking large dragonfly fly over the privacy fence from the north side of my property.
I would approximate their number to have been around a dozen as they approached the confines of my backyard, all but one scattered in different directions.
I watched the one that stayed as it circled the parameter of my property twice then I lost sight of it when suddenly it flew towards me.
As I sat on the deck it started circling directly over my head and it was at this point that I could hear a faint “clicking” sound emitting from this bug, it was then that I stood up from my chair to get a better look at this thing that was larger than any dragonfly I had ever seen.
There was something not natural about the way it looked, it seemed very aggressive in its movement of flight and as I stood there it literally flew in front of my face and that is where it hovered with me standing staring at it and it right back at me and it was at that moment that I realized this was no ordinary dragonfly rather it was mechanical and unlike anything I have ever seen, the tail end of this thing looked razor sharp
I ran inside my home to grab a camera, as I went back outdoors with the camera in hand this “creature” began to fly up and away so I started shooting until the moment it was no longer in sight.
I then quickly uploaded the pictures and I saw that I had missed it in the first few shots, but then I saw —  and was utterly shocked to see what I had caught on camera.

Mechanical Dragonfly Drone
I immediately began researching however being that I had no clue as to what it was that I had just witnessed I was unsure of even what to begin to search for so it took me quite some time to find any info but many months later I would find others with similar stories and learnt that they are known by many names such as described in this article below entitled, Dragonfly or Insect Spy? Scientists at Work on Robobugs written by Rick Weiss, Washington Post, dated Tuesday, October 9, 2007.
An excerpt reads;
Vanessa Alarcon saw them while working at an antiwar rally in Lafayette Square last month.
“I heard someone say, ‘Oh my god, look at those,’ ” the college senior from New York recalled. “I look up and I’m like, ‘What the hell is that?’ They looked kind of like dragonflies or little helicopters. But I mean, those are not insects.”
Out in the crowd, Bernard Crane saw them, too.
“I’d never seen anything like it in my life,” the Washington lawyer said. “They were large for dragonflies. I thought, ‘Is that mechanical, or is that alive?’ ”
That is just one of the questions hovering over a handful of similar sightings at political events in Washington and New York. Some suspect the insect-like drones are high-tech surveillance tools, perhaps deployed by the Department of Homeland Security.
Others think they are, well, dragonflies — an ancient order of insects that even biologists concede look about as robotic as a living creature can look.
No agency admits to having deployed insect-size spy drones. But a number of U.S. government and private entities acknowledge they are trying. Some federally funded teams are even growing live insects with computer chips in them, with the goal of mounting spyware on their bodies and controlling their flight muscles remotely.
The robobugs could follow suspects, guide missiles to targets or navigate the crannies of collapsed buildings to find survivors.
The technical challenges of creating robotic insects are daunting, and most experts doubt that fully working models exist yet.
“If you find something, let me know,” said Gary Anderson of the Defense Department’s Rapid Reaction Technology Office.
But the CIA secretly developed a simple dragonfly snooper as long ago as the 1970s. And given recent advances, even skeptics say there is always a chance that some agency has quietly managed to make something operational.
Wired article points out the fact that these insect drones have been previously spotted on US streets.

A 2011 New York Times article entitled, Changing the Shapes of Air Power documents the potential use of insect swarm technology;
Drones are playing an increasingly important role in the American military. Only 10 years ago, the Pentagon had about 50 drones; now there are 7,000 drones in its inventory, ranging in size from large blimps to tiny Hummingbirds.
Here are 10 drones currently on the battlefield or on the drawing board.
A youtube video on ‘Spy Bots’ depicts the same insect-like drone:
The following video is a testimony from another individual who claims to have had a personal encounter with micro drone technology;
A video from GRASP Lab at the University of Pennsylvania also shows similar insect type drones:

The Changing Shapes of Air Power

Drones are playing an increasingly important role in the American military. Only 10 years ago, the Pentagon had about 50 drones; now there are 7,000 drones in its inventory, ranging in size from large blimps to tiny Hummingbirds. Here are 10 drones currently on the battlefield or on the drawing board. | Related Article
Aerostat
  • 200 ft. long
  • 65 ft. across the hull
Aerostats are tethered fabric balloons filled with helium that float 15,000 feet in the air from a single cable. They can lift 1,200 pounds, including a camera that pans 360 degrees for constant real-time surveillance. They are used extensively on the Afghanistan-Pakistan border and above Kabul, where one of them is anchored at Bala Hissar, an ancient fortress. Their virtue is that they can stay aloft for months at a time, carrying a heavy load of intelligence equipment. Their shortcoming is that they cannot be moved rapidly for new assignments.
Global hawk
  • 44 ft. long
  • 116 ft. wingspan
Sometimes described as a “flying albino whale,” the Global Hawk is the largest flying drone. Although linked to humans on the ground, Global Hawks fly mostly on their own, guided by GPS coordinates they download from satellites. They were deployed over Afghanistan in 2001, providing commanders with battlefield images. The Global Hawk flies higher than the Predator and can stay up longer — for almost two days.
X-47B
  • 38 ft. long
  • 62 ft. wingspan
The Navy’s prototype combat drone, and the first combat drone able to take off from an aircraft carrier and land on it. Its first test flight (29 minutes) was on Feb. 7, 2011.
Reaper
  • 36 ft. long
  • 66 ft. wingspan
The largest armed drone. Called a “hunter-killer” aircraft, the Reaper can detect humans and can fire Hellfire air-to-surface missiles. It will soon replace the better-known Predator.
Predator
  • 27 ft. long
  • 55 ft. wingspan
The Predator is the Cessna-size workhorse that has dominated remotely piloted flight since the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks. The Pentagon has 169 Predators in its inventory.
Fire scout
  • 24 ft. long
  • 27.5 ft. rotor diameter
The Fire Scout is designed to take off and land vertically. Last summer the operators of a Fire Scout drone lost control of it in the airspace over Washington, D.C.
Shadow
  • 11.3 ft. long
  • 14 ft. wingspan
The little sister to the Predator, the Shadow is launched by a catapult, rather than from a runway. The drone is used by Army and Marine forces in the field. The United States recently sold a number to Pakistan.
Raven
  • 3 ft. long
  • 4.5 ft. wingspan
The Raven, which weighs just five pounds, is launched into the air by tossing it like a football. It is carried by ground units in the field that need quick awareness of what may be around a corner.
Hummingbird
  • 4 in. long
  • 6.5 in wingspan
The prototype remote-controlled Hummingbird has a tiny camera in its belly and weighs less than two-thirds of an ounce. Propelled only by its flapping wings, it can fly at speeds up to 11 miles per hour, hover and perch on a windowsill.
Insect swarms
The drones of the future. Researchers say there could be swarms of dragonfly-size drones — or smaller — by 2030.
