Over-watch, Over-kill, Over-it-2

CBP Receives Fourth Predator-B in Arizona
Agency Now Operates 9 Unmanned Aircraft

George Orwell in his classic novel “1984” described a police state in the year 1984 and that “Big Brother is watching” The novel first published June 8th 1949 is a portrayal of one man “Winston” that hungered for the truth in a time when the truth was illegal and thought crimes are punishable by death. The Apple Computer company capitalized on Orwell’s book when they introduced their Macintosh computer with the 1984 Superbowl commercial depicting lemmings, all staring comatose-like at a large screen taking their daily marching orders from Big Brother. More recently the Tom Cruise movie Minority Report which is based on the Philip K. Dick short story of the same name has striking similarities to the 1984 novel with the protagonist Captain John Anderson as a member of the Precrime Unit asking questions about destiny, free will and government control.

Having prefaced this blog entry with that introduction, why is it that so many main stream lemmings in the 

U.S. are reluctant to believe that the rights that have been considered unalienable are incrementally dwindling away. The uninformed citizenry of the U.S. are allowing their government to infiltrate their daily lives with everything from light bulb restrictions to the creeping false flag security agencies like the TSA that are weaving there way into the fabric of society. The ongoing uptick in false flag security will culminate in the eventual police state that we observed in the 1930s Germany.
Big brother is watching police forces from around the country, and are installing surveillance cameras on street corners  for the purpose of catching “red light runners” and even for pedestrian surveillance in high traffic areas such as Tampa Florida’s Ybor City, a notorious party zone. These cameras with facial recognition software are just the tip of the iceberg in Tampa. With the upcoming Republican National Convention the federal government allotted the city of Tampa $50 million for security. Two million of which will be spent on surveillance cameras in the down town area. With no restrictions on how that money is to be spent, the city of Tampa is also adding to their fleet of TANKS, the purchase of at least one Bearcat armored personnel carrier with the price tag of $300,000.00 a copy. The police presents in Tampa will be upwards of 4000 officers from around the state all being paid double time for the 4 days of the convention. The hotel bill for the officers will be somewhere in the neighbourhood of $1.2 million and they will be outfitted with all new gear and guns courtesy of Uncle Sam.

The feds have been in the surveillance business for many years. Most notability through the use of aerial unmanned drones. These drones have been a useful tool in the so-called war on terror. The unmanned drone was originally conceived as a intelligence gathering surveillance only tool but has evolved into an awesome offensive first strike weapon. The evolution of the drone came about when a general somewhere said OK we can see the bad guy in real time and track them in real time, lets kill them in real time. The hunter killer drones are being deployed and operated by the CIA out of clandestine micro bases around the globe to gather aerial intelligence on an as needed basis. These drones are also being used to carry out assassinations of individuals considered to be undesirable at the whim of the President of the United States. The sanction of Anwar al-Awlaki comes to mind as he was tracked, detected and dispatched by Hellfire missiles launched from two  Predator drones in the remote Yemen outback.

This concept has come to the U.S. mainland and has been given FAA approval however the Predators in the United States will be UN-armed for now and used for “Border protection, surveillance and drug interdiction.” The Customs and Border Protection service is now operating these UAVs from several bases in Florida, Texas, Arizona, New Mexico and California. This is not to say that CBP is the only operator of unmanned aircraft in the U.S. the military has been training operators and operating UAVs within the U.S. borders for many years. The difference is that the military is not actively performing surveillance operations within the U.S.. The CBP claims in a press release dated Tuesday, December 27, 2011 that “Since the inception of the UAS program, CBP has flown more than 12,000 UAS hours in support of border security operations and CBP partners in disaster relief and emergency response, including various state governments and the Federal Emergency Management Agency. The efforts of this program has led to the total seizure of approximately 46,600 pounds of illicit drugs and the detention of approximately 7,500 individuals suspected in engaging in illegal activity along the Southwest border.”

This is extremely alarming that a federal agency will do surveillance for “various state governments”. It is obvious that these Predator operators have been instructed to look for criminal activity on a random basis without a warrant thus violating the constitutional right to privacy culminating in an illegal search.

The U.S. Air Force published a fact sheet for The Predator MQ-1B dated January 5, 2012 and the stated mission of this hardware is as follows

“The MQ-1 Predator is an armed, multi-mission, medium-altitude, long endurance remotely piloted aircraft (RPA target, engage, and assess) against high value, fleeting, and time sensitive targets (TSTs). Predators can also perform the following missions and tasks: intelligence, surveillance, reconnaissance (ISR), close air support (CAS), combat search and rescue (CSAR), precision strike, buddy-lase, convoy/raid overwatch, route clearance, target development, and terminal air guidance. The MQ-1's capabilities make it uniquely qualified to conduct irregular warfare operations in support of Combatant Commander objectives.”

So why do we need such capabilities here in the U.S. unless the federal government is gearing up for a war against the American people disguising their objective as the war on drugs or internal terror threats. The electorate that grants congress the authority to make such decisions are the only ones able to put enough pressure on these politicians to de-fund such operations. The unit cost for a Predator B package in 2009 dollars is $20 million and includes four aircraft, a ground control station and a Predator Primary Satellite Link.

The arrival of the most recent Predator-B marks the second of two unmanned aircraft earmarked in the supplemental budget provisions identified in August 2010 bringing the total amount of UAVs under control of CBP to 9.

“CBP’s unmanned aircraft systems operate under several FAA-approved Certificates of Authorization that enable CBP to deploy a UAS in the national airspace. On the southwest border, the first certificate allows access into Texas from Arizona to just west of the Big Bend border area. The second certificate enables CBP to launch and recover a UAS from Naval Air Station Corpus Christi, Texas, and to operate along the entire Texas land border with Mexico, the coast, and over open water.
On the southwest border, CBP now operates a total of six Predator-B aircraft from Sierra Vista, and Corpus Christi. The missions from these two centers will allow CBP to deploy its unmanned aircraft from the eastern tip of California across the common Mexican land borders of Arizona, New Mexico, and Texas.
CBP identified Arizona as a location for its ninth UAS because it will allow for the greatest support of the CBP Air and Marine Strategic Plan to secure the shared land border between U.S. and Mexico, and will allow for the most effective execution of counter-drug operations and Homeland Security missions.
Additionally, basing a fourth UAS in Sierra Vista will best posture CBP for rapid deployment throughout the southern tier of the U.S. and the Western Hemisphere. This operational capability increases CBP’s ability to provide disaster relief and humanitarian support in the Gulf Coast region.”

The December 27 press release references the Mexican border and the Gulf coast region. But in a written statement released February 29, 2012 the CBP made this statement to the House Committee on Appropriations, Subcommittee on Homeland Security.

“We have also deployed new technology along the northern border, including thermal camera systems, Mobile Surveillance Systems, and Remote Video Surveillance System. In 2011, with the cooperation of the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), CBP expanded its operational airspace along the northern border, enabling CBP UAS operations from the Lake-of-the-Woods region in Minnesota to the vicinity of Spokane, Washington, a distance of approximately 950 miles.”

The possibility exists that the entire 50 states and all U.S. territories will be under surveillance by Predator drones in the near future, putting Big Brother in the sky 24/7 flying overwatch keeping tabs on all of us. The people of the United States and the Constitution are under attack by the by the federal government. When is enough enough? How many lies are we willing to ingest and how many rights are we willing to relinquish before their is a revolt. Do not trust this blog for the truth find it yourself. look, listen and learn the information it is their all you need to do is pay attention to what is going on. Question your local politicians chances are they are ignorant of most of the rights that are being striped away from the citizenry. George Orwell and Philip K. Dick were not just story tellers but visionaries of the police state that is being imposed upon us since the 911 attack. It started many years ago and has been simmering on low through many administrations but the slow cooking is now over and we are being served up a heaping helping of Heil Obama and Heil Holder.
