72 DHS employees on terrorist watch list

“At least 72 employees at the Department of Homeland Security are listed on the U.S. terrorist watch list, according to a Democratic lawmaker.

Rep. Stephen Lynch (D., Mass.) disclosed that a congressional investigation recently found that at least 72 people working at DHS also “were on the terrorist watch list.”

“Back in August, we did an investigation—the inspector general did—of the Department of Homeland Security, and they had 72 individuals that were on the terrorist watch list that were actually working at the Department of Homeland Security,” Lynch told Boston Public Radio.

“The [former DHS] director had to resign because of that,” he said.

DHS continues to fail inspections aimed at determining the efficiency of its internal safety mechanisms, as well as its efforts to protect the nation.”

Some crap you just can’t make up

It certainly does tell you the type of people though that are being hired by DHS

Do you think that these 72 are of white European descent?

Probably not

Preferential politically correct hiring practices or perhaps something more sinister?

I don’t even know anymore

It seems these days that they are capable of anything

undercover investigators were able to smuggle mock explosives or banned weapons through checkpoints in 95 percent of trials at airports

“An internal investigation of the Transportation Security Administration revealed security failures at dozens of the nation’s busiest airports, where undercover investigators were able to smuggle mock explosives or banned weapons through checkpoints in 95 percent of trials, ABC News has learned.

The series of tests were conducted by Homeland Security Red Teams who pose as passengers, setting out to beat the system.

According to officials briefed on the results of a recent Homeland Security Inspector General’s report, TSA agents failed 67 out of 70 tests, with Red Team members repeatedly able to get potential weapons through checkpoints.

In one test an undercover agent was stopped after setting off an alarm at a magnetometer, but TSA screeners failed to detect a fake explosive device that was taped to his back during a follow-on pat down.

Officials would not divulge the exact time period of the testing other than to say it concluded recently.”

And who the hell is it that decides what to flag people for?

The SPOT Referral Report, which stands for “Screening of Passengers by Observation Techniques,” was obtained a week ago by The Intercept, which claims the unclassified report is a “closely held” Transportation Security Administration (TSA) document detailing what Behavior Detection Officers look for when observing suspicious travelers and possible terrorists at the nation’s airports.”

Rand Paul vows to force Patriot act to expire

“Rand Paul plans to force the expiration of the PATRIOT Act Sunday by refusing to allow Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell to expedite debate on a key surveillance bill.

In a statement to POLITICO Saturday, Paul warned that he would not consent to any efforts to pass either an extension of current law or the USA Freedom Act, a reform bill passed overwhelmingly by the House earlier this month.

“So tomorrow, I will force the expiration of the NSA illegal spy program,” Paul said.

Because of the nature of the Senate rules, Paul can force the expiration of the PATRIOT Act, which he has vowed on the campaign trail to repeal as president because he contends it invades Americans’ privacy rights.”

http://www.politico.com/story/2015/05/exclusive-rand-paul-i-will-force-the-expiration-of-the-patriot-act-118443.html

I just love the names they give to these onerous laws; The Patriot act, The USA freedom act.

What more could we expect from the folks who gave us the Dept. of “Homeland” security.

Russians continue build up on Ukraine border, Obama continues to be an idiot

http://www.reuters.com/article/2014/03/26/us-ukraine-crisis-usa-idUSBREA2P22120140326

I was listening to Chairman Zero yesterday and he said who’s afraid of the big bad Russians, they are after all only a regional power. Obviously he is still stung by the fact that Romney made the call on Russia and is bitch slapping him with it.    It seems that his real concern is a nuke going off in New york city, of course carried out by those nasty Al Aqaeda types. That way we could have more searches, more NSA, and more DHS.   It is a good thing that the Russians couldn’t drop a nuke on NYC….. And that Russian newscasters aren’t laughing about turning our cities into radioactive ash.     What a fool. And now we are at the mercy of all the fools who voted for him. When you think about who the real enemy is here…Think hard

U.S. spying on Europeans a symptom of a paranoid government, Germans say

http://www.mcclatchydc.com/2013/10/28/206711/us-spying-on-europeans-a-symptom.html

“Berlin visitors say the fact that the embassy rises above the Memorial to the Murdered Jews of Europe is a painful testament to what can happen when a paranoid government moves unchecked.”

Of course the Germans state the truth with their typical Frank-ness. I personally am not into conspiracy theories or part of the “Black helicopter crowd” but the Germans have succinctly expressed what many of us see as obvious; The surveillance state has reached a level of paranoia that cannot be ignored.   You have to ask the question “Where does it go from here?” and answer it after studied thought to fully realize how deep the crap is that we are in.   I don’t have time to expound at the moment , but in the next few days I will have a piece on resistance to the police state.    In the meantime, be careful what you say; They are listening comrade…

Dem lawmaker calls TEA party “Domestic enemies”

http://dailycaller.com/2013/10/19/dem-rep-steve-cohen-tea-partiers-are-domestic-enemies-video/

Really? Those TEA party people are good and upstanding folks who still believe that they can change things through the political process; After all they are running for office and being elected.   What a tool. Muzzle the last of the real political dissent and the long knives will really come out.    You Mr. Cohen are not a “Domestic enemy”, you are an enemy of liberty and a traitor to the sacred cause of freedom.  You are of the worst and most vile scum that crawls from the tepid waters of the swamps of repression. You sir , are a toady, tongue lapping at the boots of authority in hope of personal power.  Good day..

Obama executive order to destroy 103 year old civilian marksmanship program

http://dailycaller.com/2013/08/29/obamas-new-executive-order-will-kill-the-110-year-old-civilian-marksmanship-program/

He just won’t stop. We have gone from a government that armed and trained it’s citizens to one that wants to ban firearms. Wait until he goes for the gold; all hell is going to break loose. If he wants to visit war death and destruction on this country he can do it with one simple executive order. Deep down inside I really just want to get this started and part of me hopes he does.  Good morning all… Happy thoughts… happy thoughts…

How the 56.2 Billion “Black budget” is allocated

These are from documents released by Edward Snowden and obtained by the Washington post.  Covert action. Surveillance. Counterintelligence. The U.S. “black budget” spans over a dozen agencies that make up the National Intelligence Program.

DHS employee preparing for coming race war

http://www.theatlanticwire.com/national/2013/08/homeland-security-employee-moonlights-race-warrior/68600/

A Department of Homeland Security employee who works on, among other things, the procurement of guns and ammunition for U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, spends his nights and weekends preparing for a coming race war and advocating for anti-gay causes, according to a new report from the Southern Poverty Law Center. Meet Ayo Kimathi, a.k.a. “the Irritated Genie,” who told his bosses at the DHS that his anti-white, anti-gay site, “War is on the Horizon,” was just an entertainment site that sells concert and lecture videos.

Hillary Clinton implicated in most damaging release of national security information

Oh, the irony of it all as the hypocrites denounce Edward Snowden as a traitor. Of course I knew all along that the shrieking Hiidebeast was a traitor and power and politics was all she cared about.

Egyptian MRAP going off a bridge

Egyptian MRAP going off a bridge

Don’t think that MRAPs are invulnerable because of their size and weight. If they are isolated and left without protection they can fall prey to anything, even something as simple as pure man power. Once one of them has been stopped whether road blocked or disabled they are a death trap to those within IF they aren’t protected from without. Common practice is for outside troops to use them as cover and concealment, unless they can be flanked, which it appears happened here. If the elements of the police state can be isolated, they can be quickly broken down. It is essential not to let them use their training and strength in numbers, much as the IRA did. Deny them of the most essential element they need, which is to meet them in a fixed battle and their strengths become weaknesses.

Now we know why homeland security is buying all those bullets

Around the country DHS, the anti-terrorism agency, is guarding the IRS from TEA party protesters without a real cop in sight. If you don’t get it, you should; The police state has arrived.    Tempis Fugit.

Gao investigating Homeland security ammo purchases

http://www.usnews.com/news/blogs/washington-whispers/2013/04/29/gao-now-investigating-dhs-ammo-purchases

The black helicopter crowd is how Joe Biden referred to those of us concerned about our liberties. Well , the “Black helicopter” crowd now includes the government accountability office who is investigating the recent ammo purchases by DHS.    Maybe people are actually starting to wake up. A little hope in a dark time.    We will have to wait and see.

Don’t get out teched: GPS and cell phone jammers

4 band cell signal phone jammerCar GPS Jammer

Don’t get out teched. Assuming that things are going south, but civilization hasn’t crashed you need to have technology to keep up with the other side.  Cell phone and GPS blockers can be invaluable tools. GPS blockers effectively block any GPS outgoing signals within a specified range .If you have a car with  built in  GPS tracking or want to defeat a car attached device then this is for you.     Plug it in your lighter and you go dark. There are also hand held versions that will allow you to carry it with you and block cell phone GPS. (Don’t make calls)    More powerful devices can block the GPS signals of airplanes and airports..   All of these are of course illegal but readily available.   Cell phone blockers will also black out coverage within a given area. Blockage also depends on the strength of the incoming signal and the output of the device. Cell phone blockers are routinely used by the military  and secret service to defeat bombs detonated by cell phones (Think McFly, think)   There are many situations today where the police and the military use cell phones for private communication instead of open radio channels.    With these totally illegal and readily available devices you can have an up  in the coming tech war.  I did say they were illegal , right?  Oh yeah and they are illegal , so don’t ever buy one. Even if they do work great      By the way: Don’t pay 70 dollars for the car GPS blocker; the 13 dollar one from Ebay works fine.

Gun control, DHS and armed conflict

Here’s the thing about being set up; If you know you it is a set up,  then it actually leaves you at an advantage.If you don’t, well  then you may be screwed. You see, I think we may have been set up on the gun control issue.I think that Biden ran his fat ass stupid mouth intentionally about EOs . I think that it was intentionally put out there to inflame and agitate.  Do I think that they did it to bring the more radical in our element out, create acts of violence and discredit us? Absolutely……. Not.     I think that the recent requisition of ammo by DHS shows their true intent.  Over the past 10 months DHS has purchased 1.6 BILLION rounds of ammo. That is enough to fight the Iraq war at it’s height for 30 years. I don’t know about you, but that really doesn’t leave me feeling anymore secure about the homeland.    I think that the leftists have another goal; I think they are planning their own revolution. I don’t think they have any intention of leaving power. They finally have the brass ring and are not willing to let it go.If you google explosives weekly in the news section, you may notice that most of the people getting busted for manufacturing  explosives are said leftists.   I think that when this is all said and done congress will do nothing on gun control. I think that will be the time when Chairman Zero will say that he has been “forced” to act and will issue a set of executive orders to do what congress won’t.  This would be done to intentionally provoke conflict because they are confident that they can win.    In the end they know with certainty that their plans can never be accomplished with an armed citizenry.    I don’t think that they expect organized resistance and believe that and opposition would quickly crumble in the face of DHS highly trained forces.    I think that is the point where they are mistaken. I think that many of the assets that have been placed in law enforcement agencies  over the past 15 years would quickly be turned against them; Assets that they have placed thinking that they would be used by them.    Many sheriff’s associations and departments have openly stated that they would not go along with any type of gun grab. The Utah sheriffs association declared in their letter to the white house “We are prepared to trade our lives in defense of the constitution of the United States”.    This is the part where organized resistance would be encountered.   People would flock to agencies that were prepared to resist and would quickly be deputized into their rapidly growing force.  Many of these forces would also be veterans and combat veterans who are already familiar with the training and weaponry.  Unorganized resistance would quickly become organized and would spread to the county level and probably state level in areas.       All of this is speculation of course, but still food for thought. There is only one way to find out; Wait and see what happens after the congress makes their gun control decision. Just a little more waiting….
