The stage has already been set and played upon for divisions of Unmanned Aerial Vehicles to patrol and strike undeclared war zones abroad.

Even though lip service has been paid to express minor outrage over villages bombed in Pakistan, Yemen, Somalia, or someplace “over there,” there has been relatively little true outrage by countries heretofore unaffected by computer bombing raids upon their own Homeland — countries like America.

Well, seeing is believing they say.

Americans are next in line to get their chance to see firsthand what has been happening overseas — a close-up view of what takes place on computer screens in Tel Aviv or Las Vegas.

The Boomerang Effect has taken flight.

(NaturalNews) Ever since Homeland Security Chief Michael Chertoff made a fortune selling his naked body scanners to the federal government in 2010, health and privacy concerns over these devices have been both repeatedly raised and in turn categorically denied.

One of the less known but crucially important issues with the body scanning equipment lies in the fact they are not externally shielded. This means that a large portion of the radiation released to scan the individual passes through into the immediate vicinity of machine. While exposing passengers waiting in line to an unnecessary radiological hazard that sensitive individuals may notice, there has been far more detrimental effect to TSA workers manning the machines.

“…it would be far more preferable if the United States could cite an Iranian provocation as justification for the airstrikes before launching them. Clearly, the more outrageous, the more deadly, and the more unprovoked the Iranian action, the better off the United States would be. Of course, it would be very difficult for the United States to goad Iran into such a provocation without the rest of the world recognizing this game, which would then undermine it. (One method that would have some possibility of success would be to ratchet up covert regime change efforts in the hope that Tehran would retaliate overtly, or even semi-overtly, which could then be portrayed as an unprovoked act of Iranian aggression.)” — US foreign policy makers in the Fortune 500 funded Brookings Institution’s “Which Path to Persia?” report, pages 84-85.

Considering that the Gulf of Tonkin incident was a deliberate fabrication to escalate the Vietnam War, one many members in Congress are shown to have acknowledged and debated even at the time, or the more recent Iraqi WMD hoax, there is certainly a historical precedence to create such provocations when targeted nations refuse to provide them.

Via: Washington Post:

The Food and Drug Administration secretly monitored the personal e-mail of a group of its own scientists and doctors after they warned Congress that the agency was approving medical devices that they believed posed unacceptable risks to patients, government documents show.

The surveillance — detailed in e-mails and memos unearthed by six of the scientists and doctors, who filed a lawsuit against the FDA in U.S. District Court in Washington last week — took place over two years as the plaintiffs accessed their personal Gmail accounts from government computers.

Information garnered this way eventually contributed to the harassment or dismissal of all six of the FDA employees, the suit alleges. All had worked in an office responsible for reviewing devices for cancer screening and other purposes.

President Barack Obama claimed in his third State of the Union address that he supported a policy of “no bailouts, no handouts, and no copouts.” But he said this after he had outlined more than half a dozen new spending handout proposals in a speech that also praised bailouts. On taxes, Obama concluded of retaining outrageously high middle-class tax rates and increasing the tax rates on the rich: “That’s how we’ll reduce our deficit.”

“It’s time to apply the same rules from top to bottom: No bailouts, no handouts, and no copouts. An America built to last insists on responsibility from everybody,” Obama told Congress in his January 24 prime time speech to a joint session of Congress. “We can either settle for a country where a shrinking number of people do really well, while a growing number of Americans barely get by. Or we can restore an economy where everyone gets a fair shot, everyone does their fair share, and everyone plays by the same set of rules.”

Though Obama claimed he didn’t want any more bailouts, he touted the supposed success of past federal government bailouts in the State of the Union address. “Today, General Motors is back on top as the world’s number one auto maker,” Obama boasted of the auto bailout he worked to get adopted back in early 2009. “We bet on American ingenuity, and tonight the American auto industry is back.” Obama had also supported passage of the TARP bailout bill in October 2008 and the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act “Stimulus” bill in 2009, and in last year’s State of the Union address he heavily promoted a new stimulus bill (though he didn’t label it “stimulus”).

Obama also proposed new spending — or entirely new programs — where government picks winners and losers in the marketplace. One example of Obama’s proposal was to continue government subsidy of so-called “clean energy” programs: “Government support is critical in helping businesses get new energy ideas off the ground.” Obama has apparently learned nothing from the $500 million Solyndra disaster.

Many of us breathed a sigh of relief when an overwhelming amount of Americans banned together and voiced their opposition to Congress over both the Stop Online Piracy Act, and Protect Intellectual Property Act.

Sites that dimmed the screen for a day or two have gone back to normal — Facebook users have swapped their anti-SOPA images for their previous profile pictures.

We may have even believed that the postponement of the vote originally scheduled for January 24th was some sort of white flag of capitulation. But that is certainly not the MO of most lawmakers.

Geoengineering has now been defined as: “the deliberate large-scale manipulation of the planetary environment to counteract anthropogenic climate change.” – The Royal Society 2009

Recently, the question has been asked, What In the World Are They Spraying? The documentary with the same name answers many of those questions.

The question the world is now asking is “Who in the World Is Spraying Us?”
