Across the world, many are reporting the news about the blimp protest against the NSA data collection center in Utah. For many months now, various protests have been tried and this is the latest one, done by a coalition of groups with both left and right members, mostly leftists. Snowden is a libertarian, for example. I have always wanted a stronger left/right Constitutional rights/antiwar coalition but this has been shattered by two political forces, both of which are stupid. That is, the global warming insanity on the left and the anti-women’s, minorities and gay civil rights attitude on the right. Maybe we will find common ground again by dropping both peculiar itches.
Greenpeace, Electronic Frontier Foundation and the Tenth Amendment Center used a blimp to protest the government’s alleged illegal activity.
The 135-foot-long thermal airship soared over the city of Bluffdale with a message that read: “NSA Illegal Spying Below” and below it a link, StandAgainstSpying.org.
“We’re flying an airship over the Utah data center, which has come to symbolize the NSA’s collect-it-all approach to surveillance, and demanding an end to the mass spying. It’s time for bold action in defense of our privacy,” said EFF Activism Director Rainey Reitman in a press release.
Thank you, everyone who cooperated to do this, for taking the time, energy and dangers to go against the AIPAC/Bilderberg/military-industrialist super state! As stupid wars rage across the earth, the US is in the center and is the main creator of much of this. The total collapse of US invasions of Muslim nations which cost us more than two trillion dollars has only made us more unsafe.
What is even more interesting and which clearly shows how the Bilderberg gang feels about our little protests of their Soviet Style State they cooked up for us is illustrated by the fact that both the New York Times and the Bezos Washington Post had ZERO coverage of this protest.
Neither warmongering rag reported this news: ITAR-TASS: World – President Poroshenko proclaims Ukrainian as only state language which was done by the junta in Kiev deliberately to fan the fires of rebellion.
In April, an army drone crashed next to an elementary-school playground in Pennsylvania; in 2012 an unmanned navy surveillance aircraft nose-dived and ignited a wildfire in Maryland.
Of the 418 major drone crashes since September 2001 that the newspaper identified, about half happened in Iraq and Afghanistan and nearly a quarter were in the US. Almost 200 of the crashes were classed by the military as “class A”, meaning they destroyed the aircraft or caused at least $2m-worth of damage, though no loss of life was attributed to the accidents. Problems included pilot error, mechanical failure and communications challenges.
Bezos wants to use drones here in the US! So his WP paper didn’t cover this story. $2 million times 418=$836,000,000 which is nearly a billion dollars. This is about equal to the amount of money Congress gives to Israel as a gift every few months. Money, Congress says we can’t afford to spend. Use of Drones for Killings Risks a War Without End, Panel says …is in the New York Times yesterday so at least we know the owner of that rag isn’t openly desiring to use drones in the US, thank goodness.
And yes, this is ‘war without end’ as is the equally insidious and stupid ‘war on drugs’ which does nothing good at all except increase profits for drug lords and put a huge swath of the lower class into prisons or lure them into becoming drug dealers to make money. Pentagon: Armed US Drones Flying Over Baghdad is sad news indeed since these stupid things are worse than useless. All they do is fuel more radicalism and fierce fighting.
Our Peace Prize Bilderberg President continues wild war spending with AIPAC’s happy assent: Barack Obama seeks $65 billion in war funds. Liberalism is a dead force thanks to him and the DNC. Not that the antiwar right is treated any better by their leaders all of whom are owned by AIPAC and the Saudi royals.
Obama Asks Congress for Another $500 Million for Syria Rebels because he learned absolutely nothing from the previous opening the genie’s bottle and letting out ruthless fighters! Sad! But this is what AIPAC and Netanyahu want so this is what we pay for. This money is for ‘good’ fighters who always end up being ‘bad’ fighters.
Maliki Faults US, Announces Fighter Jet Purchases From Russia which is yet another reason the US imperium is demanding Maliki be removed. You see, if provinces revolt, this means removing the ‘president’ who won an election except if the US installs a ‘winner’ like in Egypt or Ukraine then it means the revolt has to be crushed brutally and it is OK to kill many civilians which the US does daily in Afghanistan and previously in Iraq.
Amusingly, the Russian envoy to the UN, Churkin advises US to use $500 million better than on Syrian rebels. If Russia were arming rebels anywhere, the US and Europe go nuts. But when NATO arms rebels in Syria, Libya, Afghanistan (when Russia invaded), etc. this is ‘freedom’ and ‘democracy’.
