Drones May be Targeting YOU

It is the intention of the United States government to destroy privacy in America, and a big part of this evil is the planned deployment of 30,000 drones that will be able to monitor in detail the movement and activities of every citizen of this country. The path to the surveillance state has been paved by the Supreme Court, which has ruled that citizens have essentially no right of privacy from being observed from overhead.

The President has been granted the right to kill American citizens without a trial, and deadly Predator and Reaper drones will be deployed over American soil from Creech Air Force Base (AFB) in Nevada, Holloman AFB and Cannon AFB in New Mexico, Fort Drum in New York, Grand Forks in North Dakota, Ellsworth AFB in South Dakota, Whiteman AFB in Missouri, and the Southern California Logistics Airport, among others.

Coverage of the entire United States by killer drones will thus be insured, and the Pentagon and the White House will then have the capability of "legally" killing any American without warning and without any form of trial, let alone due process.

Drones vary in size from the four-pound RQ-11B Raven surveillance drone, which can be launched by hand, to the giant MQ-9 Reaper combat drone, manufactured by Northrup Grumman. The Reaper has a maximum take-off weight of 7,000 pounds, including up to 3,000 pounds of bombs, missiles and other armaments.

There are rumors that drones are being created that can be mistaken for insects. The drone operators who control these spy planes behind video screens at US military bases already refer to their victims as "bug splats."

The MQ-1 Predator drone, armed with 100-pound Hellfire missiles, is the government's assassination weapon of choice. A Predator drone was used in the unprecedented assassination of US citizen Anwar al-Awlaki, in Yemen last September.

In December, the American Civil Liberties Union published a detailed report on the dangers of a massive build-up of surveillance drones within the US, warning that “our privacy laws are not strong enough to ensure that the new technology will be used responsibly and consistently with democratic values.”

On the Counter Currents website, Tom Carter quotes Jay Stanley, a policy analyst at the ACLU, as saying that drone surveillance in the US is a "nightmare scenario," leading to "an oppressive atmosphere where people learn to think twice about everything they do, knowing that it will be recorded, charted, scrutinized by increasingly intelligent computers, and possibly used to target them."

Another example of too much government interference; thank goodness for people like Denise who are ready to fight back.

I think our government has gone completely insane. If they want to fly over my yard I'll be out there sipping a beer and watching the real hummingbirds. Sounds dangerous, doesn't it???

It seems our government is no longer a democracy. First the Bush years, and now this. The revolutionary spirit seems dead in America...this is wrong.

HairBrainman: Our form of government was never a "Democracy" that is socialist propaganda...We have a Republic....But you are correct, it seems that a lot of "slugs" are willing to be directed by the unqualified to do what ever it is that these unconcious "leaders" want them to do....The main problem with this scenario is air traffic control and interference with flights. I do not think the Government has the money or the will to actually risk the shoot downs of their drones and the resulting uproar...There are a lot of people with adequate weapons in the US who would make an Olympic Sport of this!! This may be why the liberals and their stooges are so worked up over private firearms in the US....It is not crime, that is down, so it has to be some other reason...
