New DHS Scanner Knows What You’ve Eaten, If You’re High, & What’s in Your Purse From 164 Feet Away

5 Aug

With this technology, the molecular-level scanner called a Picosecond Programmable Laser can detect traces of drugs, chemicals, weapons, and food in one-trillionth of a second, or a picosecond.

The lasers will be in use in airports and other high-risk areas within one to two years, according to an unnamed undersecretary from Homeland Security. The company that has acquired 30 patents relating to these particular types of scanners, Genia Photonics, says the Picosecond Programmable Laser scanner can ‘penetrate clothing and many other organic materials and offers spectroscopic information, especially for materials that impact safety such as explosives and pharmacological substances.’

In-Q-Tel, a technology company playing middleman between DHS and Genia Photonics, states that “an important benefit of Genia Photonics’ implementation as compared to existing solutions is that the entire synchronized laser system is comprised in a single, robust and alignment-free unit that may be easily transported for use in many environments… This compact and robust laser has the ability to rapidly sweep wavelengths in any pattern and sequence.” [PDF]

The scanner is capable of detecting substances and processing the data from 164 feet away. It is ten million times faster and one million times more sensitive than any other existing security technology that is available. How widespread could the use of this technology become? Could there eventually be scanners in movie theaters, temples and churches, grocery stores, night clubs, and schools? Will we be scanned without even knowing it? Will our fourth amendment once again be ignored and disregarded?

Because it is such a small device, I can see it being put into police vehicles, as a Huffington Post article from July points out. Could this laser play a part in the legalization of marijuana? One dilemma with legalizing the drug is the hazard of irresponsible people driving under the influence, and the lack of technology to test if a person is high on marijuana at the time of a traffic stop. This new fourth amendment-crushing monstrosity, the Picosecond Programmable Laser, could solve that problem…and probably create three hundred new problems in the process. Current methods of testing for marijuana can show the drug in a person’s system even if the person has not used it in a month.  Could this  device aid in convincing the government and the public that marijuana should be legalized? What will we be giving up by allowing the use of these scanners? What opportunities for further abuse of power would this technology provide?

Couple handcuffed, jailed for dancing on subway platform: lawsuit – New York Post

8 Jul

Picture from dailymail.com

New York Post –

First smoking, then soda — now there’s no dancing in New York City.

Caroline Stern, 55, and her boyfriend George Hess, 54, claim they were handcuffed for having happy feet on the platform of the Columbus Circle subway station — and spent 23 hours in custody as a result.

“I’m a dentist, and I’m 55, and I got arrested for dancing,” Stern told The Post. “It was absolutely ridiculous that this happened.”

It was nearly midnight when Stern and Hess, a film-industry prop master, headed home last July from Jazz at Lincoln Center’s Midsummer Night’s Swing. As they waited for the train, a musician started playing steel drums on the nearly empty platform and Stern and Hess began to feel the beat.

“We were doing the Charleston,” Stern said. That’s when two police officers approached and pulled a “Footloose.”

“They said, ‘What are you doing?’ and we said, ‘We’re dancing,’ ” she recalled. “And they said, ‘You can’t do that on the platform.’ ”

The cops asked for ID, but when Stern could only produce a credit card, the officers ordered the couple to go with them — even though the credit card had the dentist’s picture and signature.

When Hess began trying to film the encounter, things got ugly, Stern said.

“We brought out the camera, and that’s when they called backup,” she said. “That’s when eight ninja cops came from out of nowhere.”

Hess was allegedly tackled to the platform floor, and cuffs were slapped on both of them. The initial charge, according to Stern, was disorderly conduct for “impeding the flow of traffic.”

“There was nobody on the platform. There were, like, three people,” she said.

The charges, including resisting arrest, were later dropped. The couple has filed a Manhattan federal court suit against the city for unspecified damages.

“If you are surrounded by good musicians, that’s going to make you want to dance,” Stern said. “The musician who is playing is legal, but . . . we’re illegal?”

The avid hoofers frequently go out on the town to boogie.

“When you’re waiting for the subway late at night, there’s not much to do but dance and celebrate life,” she said.

The city Law Department is reviewing the court papers, a spokeswoman said.

Austin Police Dept Corruption Exposed

8 Jul

If you don’t know the Antonio Buehler story, I have posted some information below this new video of Antonio Buehler addressing Austin officials. Make sure to see his credentials at the bottom. He’s a CEO, a teacher, a war veteran, a Stanford and West Point graduate with accolades and he works with disadvantaged children. The Austin Police Department’s lies are helping no one. Their denial of any wrongdoing and refusal to release the dash cam video will only continue to encourage an antagonistic relationship between the community and the police. The more animosity and resentment the public feels towards the cops, the more danger police put themselves in.

The original news report.

You may not be a fan of Alex Jones, but the following is the most comprehensive interview.

After midnight on New Years of this year, war veteran Antonio Buehler witnessed Austin police officers being unnecessarily rough with a female at a gas station.

The police had pulled over a car containing two females and began to question the driver. The passenger yelled to her friend that she did not have to take a sobriety test. The police claimed the passenger’s right to free speech was an interference. One of the two cops, Oborski, ripped the female out of the car, eliciting a scream from the victim. She was then cuffed and held by both cops in a “pain compliance” move that reminds me of strappado, a medieval Inquisition torture technique that was used in torture chambers.

Note: A form of strappado  was used by abusive U.S. military personnel at Abu Ghraib, but was referred to as a “Palestinian Hanging.” It resulted in the death of Manadel al-Jamadi in 2003. This technique not only has potential to dislocate shoulders, causing long-term tendon, ligament, and nerve damage, but in some forms of the technique, the victim also risks having their shoulders broken.

Wikipedia describes strappado as:

A form of torture in which the victim’s hands are first tied behind his or her back and suspended in the air by means of a rope attached to wrists, which most likely dislocates both arms. Weights may be added to the body to intensify the effect and increase the pain.

When Antonio saw this happening, he pulled out his mobile phone and began taking photos.

“We pull out our cameras and try to take pictures with our cell phones,” he said. “She sees me taking pictures and says, ‘please, take pictures and videos.’

“I asked the cop, ‘why are you hurting her, she didn’t do anything wrong, stop hurting her.’

“They pick her up and walk her right past us. Oborski then turns around walks back towards me.”

“’He said, ‘who do you think you are?’

New TSA Policy: Ordering Travelers To “Freeze” On Command?

Bizarre power trip behavior of federal agency reaches new level of craziness

Paul Joseph Watson

Infowars.com

Friday, July 6, 2012

If you thought the bizarre power trip behavior of the TSA couldn’t get any crazier – think again. According to a friend of political commentator Lew Rockwell, the federal agency is now ordering travelers passing through security to “freeze” on command.

Explaining how he had arranged with his family to split up as they were passing through airport security, the correspondent, whose story is posted at LewRockwell.com, explains how he heard a commotion from a different security lane.

“We heard a “freeze, freeze” or something like this coming from the output side of (false) security (where my wife was), followed by further barking of commands. From where I was, I couldn’t see much.”

“It turns out they were doing a new drill. They want all passengers to freeze on command. My wife told me later that she didn’t follow this order fast enough, so the subsequent barks I heard were directed at her.”

TSA supervisors expressed little other than disinterest when the man’s wife complained at being ordered around in such an overbearing manner.

“I think back to when I was a child, playing and wrestling in the back of the station wagon on long trips – no seatbelts or child seats. Now we get yelled at in the airport. I don’t feel safer,” the post concludes.

If accurate, the new policy represents yet another pointless exercise of power that seems designed to achieve little else than harassing travelers and treating them like prisoners by aggressively demanding immediate subservience.

As we reported yesterday, the TSA is now demanding the right to test drinks purchased by passengers after they have already passed through airport security. The new policy serves only to further inconvenience travelers who have already gone through humiliating grope downs and body scanners.

In a subsequent response, the federal agency argued that the bizarre measure was important because “unpredictable measure(s)” are necessary to snare would be criminals and terrorists.

Presumably, these “unpredictable measures” now also include barking degrading orders at travelers as if they were misbehaving middle school children on a class trip.

As a TSA whistleblower told Infowars last month, far from just performing the role of screeners at the security gate, the TSA is now empowering its employees to fulfill all manner of invasive tasks.

“We’re doing patrols in the parking lot with dogs, we’re even going as far out to the train station because the train station is connected to the airport here and we have guys walking around the train station, walking around the rental cars, we’re inspecting cars coming into the parking garage, I mean we’ve fully expanded – we’re no longer just at the gate and just at the security checkpoint,” the whistleblower said.

We have contacted the TSA to ascertain whether the order for travelers to “freeze” on command was a one off incident, what its purpose was, and whether such behavior will now form part of the TSA’s security procedures.

Where Do the TSA‘s Lechers Hang Out After ‘Work’? Hooter’s, Of Course

Posted by Becky Akers on July 1, 2012 08:21 PM

The TSA has apparently decided to woo Americans on the warpath against it by pretending that its problems aren’t systemic and intractable but simply the fault of a few bad apples. To that end, it’s been on a firing spree. Fine by me! Let’s hope it dispatches every last one of its goons and perverts. But I doubt it owns even a fraction of the modicum of sense so obvious a move requires.

Ergo, it recently sacked eight gropers at Newark Airport (yes, I know its middle name is “Liberty,” but I will not sully that divine word with application to Leviathan’s gulag) for sleeping when they should have been gate-raping. Judge the utter evil of an agency that considers an innocent nap offensive but sexual assault a job. And in Florida a few weeks ago, the TSA gave 5 employees the heave-ho while “suspending “another 38 “after an internal investigation found they failed to perform random screenings last year.” We wouldn’t want Granny boarding without a deviant “randomly” inspecting her Depends, now, would we?

But the newest heads to fall belonged to some “air marshals” — you know, the guys who can’t shoot straight but who nonetheless babysit flights full of passengers. And, what the heck, who kill one every now and then to secure the ole Homeland.

Seems 8 of these murderous thugs were “drinking on duty at a Hooter’s bar near LaGuardia Airport.” Hooter’s: don’t you love it? But that wasn’t all: Our lecherous leeches also “ask[ed] for a law enforcement discount to reduce the tab.” Law enforcement! Priceless! But here’s the clincher: The TSA learned of this bibulous behavior because another marshal snitched on his fellows.

Hey, if you see something, say something.

My mail opened & inspected, one package was ‘The New World Order’ by Wells; “FBI Task Force” listed in wifi networks. Is it real?

18 Jun

One of the packages that was ripped open by the government before I received it just happened to be H.G. Wells New World Order. Seriously.

One night I ordered over sixty books on Amazon.com that could very well be banned in ten years.  I chose a lot of H.G. Wells, Huxley, Zbigniew, Kissinger, Woodward, Kagan, Bernays, and many, many more.  I even got the actual Agenda 21 manual, which is put together in a hard cover book.  When my orders started arriving, I noticed two packages had been opened and marked with bright orange stickers.  One of the packages contained the book The New World Order by H.G. Wells.

This is one of the packages that was opened by grubby fed paws. They obviously wanted me to know.

Wow, was the person who did this 8 years old? Nice skills, boot-licker, did you finally graduate kindergarten?

R.I.P. Rodney King 1965-2012

Rodney King Dead: Face Of LA Riots Dies At Age 47 _ HuffingtonPost.com

Rodney King, the man who was at the center of the infamous Los Angeles riots, was found dead this morning, TMZ has reported. He was 47.

According to TMZ, King’s fiancée, Cynthia Kelly, found him dead at the bottom of a swimming pool. CNN has confirmed his passing.

King recently marked the twentieth anniversary of the Los Angeles riots — the mayhem that took place after four police officers were acquitted of beating King in 1991. The beating, which was caught on camera, sparked national outrage and put King at the center of heated debate about the state of race relations in America.

CBS Los Angeles has released a radio interview with Rialto, California police Captain Randy De Anda, who says that King may have had some verbal contact with his fiancée, at which time she went outside and found him at the bottom of the pool.

“Rialto police officers responded to the location and removed him from inside of the pool and began CPR. The Rialto Fire Department paramedics responded and transported Mr. King to the Arrowhead Regional Medical Center where he was later pronounced dead at 6:11 a.m. this morning,” De Anda said.

Preliminary information showed no signs of foul play, he added.

In his memoir, “The Riot Within: My Journey From Rebellion to Redemption,” published earlier this year, King detailed the high-speed chase that led up to his beating on March 3, 1991 and how he went on to receive a $3.8 million settlement from the city of Los Angeles. Most of the money was lost, however, to bad investments, including a hip-hop record label he founded.

More From AP:

The 1992 riots, which were set off by the acquittals of the officers who beat King, lasted three days and left 55 people dead, more than 2,000 injured and swaths of Los Angeles on fire. At the height of the violence, King pleaded on television: “Can we all get along?”

In the two decades after he became the central figure in the riots, King was arrested several times, mostly for alcohol-related crimes. He later became a record company executive and a reality TV star, appearing on shows such as “Celebrity Rehab.”

In an interview earlier this year with The Associated Press, King said he was a happy man.

“America’s been good to me after I paid the price and stayed alive through it all,” he says. “This part of my life is the easy part now.”

Chimes of Freedom: Using Music To Teach; The Fourth Amendment Song Contest

11 Jun

I remember reading a piece called ‘TSA Arrests Me for Using the Fourth Amendment as a Weapon (Tales from the Edge of a Revolution #2)” at dailykos.com.  It’s one of my favorite stories about TSA civil disobedience. A woman was arrested for reciting the fourth amendment, calmly but loudly, while receiving a TSA groping. It’s infuriating, but this woman is a hero in my eyes.  After reading this, I decided I should make sure I knew the fourth amendment by heart, and be capable of saying it effortlessly in case I was ever in a similar situation.

I then started thinking about my niece, and how much I fear her going to public schools when she is old enough.  I worry about the conditioning and and overall indoctrination into this “backwards is forwards” world and mindset propagated by the puppet masters. I wondered if she will ever say the Pledge of Allegiance to the American Flag or sing ‘My Country ‘Tis of Thee‘ like I did as a child.

Scenarios for the Future of Technology and International Development | AntiOligarch.wordpress.com – Updated With My Notes

8 Jun

English: Woman receiving rubella vaccination, ...

Antioligarch did a really nice job of breaking down the Rockefeller Foundation document, ‘Scenarios for the Future of Technology and International Development,’ but I encourage you to read it for yourself (pdf). I just got started on it and will be away for the weekend most likely, so I can’t give my personal thoughts on the entire thing just yet, but I will say it is disturbing.  Everything the “crazy” people (who read and do research) have said is on the mark. The predictions of outbreaks and the backlash against vaccines is unnerving, to put it mildly, especially with the CDC‘s zombie propaganda conditioning technique to prepare everyone.

I just read the other day that a man-made virus had gotten out of the laboratory, I’ll have to find it.  Page 19 of “Zombie Pandemic” mentions a flu vaccine they had created that may be the cure to the zombie disease in the story.

Preparedness 101: Zombie Pandemic Pg. 25 from the CDC. Civilians need to have “just a simple blood test” in order to stay in the shelters.

I thought the”11001100011000….”  binary code on the cover of the report was interesting, considering “Digital Government” and the Smart Grid/Internet of Things is on its way.  Check this out, released May 23, 2012: Digital Government Strategy.  I still have only read part of it, but it’s quite interesting.

Oh there is so much more to this document, but I have to run. Have a good weekend and keep up the good fight.

Update:  A piece at the guardian.co.uk called ‘Researcher Believed Killed by Lab Bacteria in California’ is no longer there because the copyright expired.

“Richard Din, 25, is thought to have died in a case of a scientist being fatally infected with an agent from his own laboratory.”

Injected?  Not pricked or airborne exposure?  Wow.

I found ‘Death of California Researcher Spurs Investigation

“Din died 28 April of meningococcal disease, which authorities believe he contracted from exposure to bacteria in the lab where he worked. ”

“Din had worked in a lab at the San Francisco VA that studies Neisseria meningitidis, a bacterium that causes roughly 1000 cases of meningococcal disease and 75 fatalities in the United States each year, Lampiris says… Vaccines have been available since the 1960s for several strains of N. meningitidis, but not against so-called serotype B strains, which Din was working with the week before his death. Developing a vaccine against these strains was a long-term goal of the lab where Din worked, Lampiris says.”

“Tests have confirmed the presence of serotype B N. meningitidis in Din’s blood, Lampiris says.”

from antioligarch.wordpress.com

A 2010 Rockefeller Foundation document entitled “Scenarios for the Future of Technology and International Development” outlines a scenario which results in the death of 13,000 during the 2012 Olympics.

Rise of Authoritarianism

The first worrying prediction begins in 2012 when ‘the pandemic the world had been anticipating for years’, finally hits, infecting nearly 20 percent of world population and claiming 8 million lives. Due to this pandemic, the Rockefeller Foundation outlines how the public will welcome a more authoritative government and a tighter control across all aspects of life, including Biometric IDs for all citizens.

The 2012 London Olympics Bombing

In the document, the Rockefeller Foundation ‘predicts’ that the decade of 2010-2020 will be

named “The Doom Decade”, because of  a wave of terrorist attacks, natural disasters as well as civil uprisings and financial collapses.

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.

Mirroring events in real life, the document also predicts that by 2015 a large share of the US’ armed forces are recalled from countries such as Afghanistan to be stationed domestically, apparently posse comitatus no longer being a concern.

 In 2015, the U.S. reallocated a large share of its defense spending to domestic concerns, pulling out of Afghanistan—where the resurgent Taliban seized power once again.

As is happening right now, the document outlines how nations will lose power over their own finances due to massive debt, apparently handing over financial sovereignty to the banking technocrats.

But the document doesn’t just cover these topics. The growing mistrust in vaccines is covered in the Rockefeller document, where they state  that due to corruption within national and global bodies such as WHO, “bogus” vaccines will result in mass deaths.  According to the paper, the resulting mistrust in vaccines results in a large number of parents who avoid vaccination, which causes infant and child morality to rise to levels not seen since the 1970s.

In the context of weak health systems, corruption, and inattention to standards—either within countries or

from global bodies like the World Health Organization—tainted vaccines entered the public health systems of several African countries. In 2021, 600 children in Cote d’Ivoire died from a bogus Hepatitis B vaccine, which paled in comparison to the scandal sparked by mass deaths from a tainted anti-malarial drug years later. The deaths and resulting scandals sharply affected public confidence in vaccine delivery; parents not just in Africa but elsewhere began to avoid vaccinating their children, and it wasn’t long before infant and child mortality rates rose to levels not seen since the 1970s.
