Americans rising up against government
America’s ruling class has been experiencing more pushback than usual lately. It just might be a harbinger of things to come.
First, in response to widespread protests last week, the Department of Homeland Security canceled plans to build a nationwide license plate database. Many local police departments already use license-plate readers that track every car as it passes traffic signals or pole-mounted cameras. Specially equipped police cars even track cars parked on the street or even in driveways.
The DHS put out a bid request for a system that would have gone national, letting the federal government track millions of people’s comings and goings just as it tracks data about every phone call we make. But the proposal was suddenly withdrawn last week, with the unconvincing explanation that it was all a mistake. I’m inclined to agree with TechDirt’s Tim Cushing, who wrote: “The most plausible explanation is that someone up top at the DHS or ICE suddenly realized that publicly calling for bids on a nationwide surveillance system while nationwide surveillance systems are being hotly debated was … a horrible idea.”
On Friday, after more public outrage, the Federal Communications Commission withdrew a plan to “monitor” news coverage at not only broadcast stations, but also at print publications that the FCC has no authority to regulate. The “Multi-Market Study of Critical Information Needs,” or CIN (pronounced “sin”) involved the FCC sending people to question reporters and editors about why they chose to run particular stories. Many folks in and out of the media found it Orwellian.
How this program appeared was, like the DHS program, a bit of a mystery: FCC Commissioner Ajit Pai said: “This has never been put to an FCC vote; it was just announced.” But the blowback was sufficient to stop it for now.
Meanwhile, in Connecticut a massive new gun-registration scheme is also facing civil disobedience. As J.D. Tuccille reports: “Three years ago, the Connecticut legislature estimated there were 372,000 rifles in the state of the sort that might be classified as ‘assault weapons,’ and 2 million plus high-capacity magazines. … But by the close of registration at the end of 2013, state officials received around 50,000 applications for ‘assault weapon’ registrations, and 38,000 applications for magazines.”
This is more “Irish Democracy,” passive resistance to government overreach. The Hartford (Conn.) Courant is demanding that the state use background-check records to prosecute those who haven’t registered, but the state doesn’t have the resources and it’s doubtful juries would convict ordinary, law-abiding people for failure to file some paperwork.
Matthew 24:34 states that “this generation shall not pass till all these things be fulfilled”.
Before you view this post, and think that “it can’t happen here”, remember that appeasement produced the worst conflict in Human history – WWII. We can’t afford to repeat a Neville Chamberlain stance.
It was just over forty years from the time Jules Verne’s “Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea” was published, that the fictional submarine became a gruesome reality as a weapon of war in WWI. What is “Science Fiction” today, doesn’t need decades to happen; in some cases just a mere 18 months before another quantum leap occurs, making what was “cutting edge” another dinosaur.
Remember: If, instead of 1939, Hitler had waited till 1945 to start the war, he would have had swept wing jet fighters, jet bombers, the V-2, (the forerunner of the ICBM) and submarines designed to be faster underwater, like the modern ones we’re familiar with today, armed with torpedos that didn’t need to be aimed! [I'll have to hunt this down, it isn't among the series of secret weapons on the History channel, and the war ended before that project was completed]
During WWII, the Japanese actually developed a magnetron weapon -
Ku-Go Death Ray – The Japanese military was working on its own secret weapon of mass destruction based on the ideas of inventor Nikola Tesla. The “Ku-Go” was an enormous magnetron that collected and focused microwaves inside a high-powered vacuum tube and directed them in a beam through the air. Thankfully, available power sources of the era made this a weapon that didn’t ever live up to its full deadly potential, but the Ku-Go could kill a rabbit at a range of 1000 yards without leaving a mark on its body. Sure, it took five minutes to do it, but at least it worked.
1984 – “The Terminator” hit the theaters. The HK’s (hunter-killers) in this movie were just another fictional idea; now we have the Predator , and other drones. As far as robotics are concerned, I’ve made posts on this subject, also the micro-sized flying robots, and experiments using electronic control of live insects. < You read that right!
We seem to think that this multi faceted fight with our Rogue Government can be won by keeping our 2nd amendment rights alive; however, the science we know exists via public domain, is about forty years behind what this Rogue Government chooses to allow us to know exists …
KEEPING THAT IN MIND:
The Window to Resist Tyranny is Closing Due to the New Super Weapons
Many talk about the fact that Americans have an estimated 300 million privately owned hand guns as the reason why no foreign power, or even our government, can subjugate the people. I am compelled to disagree. If our government ever became abusive enough that the people felt the need to rebel, there is a new generation of super weapons being developed which would doom any rebellion.
Although Yamamoto once refused to invade the United States following his attack upon Pearl Harbor because there would be “an American with a gun behind every blade of grass”, these super weapons would have changed his mind, thus, making America vulnerable to tyrants and foreign invaders. As a result, the window to resist martial law occupation and even an invasion is quickly closing.
Who will ever forget the well-publicized DHS paper targets, depicting the following targets, as a reminder as to who DHS feels is the real enemy.
The rules of Guerrilla warfare are about to change. Although many of the weapons described below are not yet deployed, it is merely a matter of time. Afghanistan is proving to be the beta testing ground for many of these weapons as is Iraq. The following technological breakthroughs in military technology have very little value on the battlefield in a conventional war. These weapons systems are anti-guerrilla orientated and they are designed for Americans who will soon try to put a stop to the unfolding tyranny of the bankers who have hijacked our government. We are entering into a new type of guerrilla warfare with extreme counter-measures designed and created by DARPA which is the top secret research arm for the Department of Defense.
DARPA’s sole purpose is built around the goal of developing more efficient and greater means of killing. For those of you who have not figured out that we are about to enter American hunting season and you are the game, you should know that if these weapons systems are ever deployed in sufficient numbers, the game is over.
Project Endurance, is referred to in DARPA’s 2014 budget request as being tasked with the development of “technology for pod-mounted lasers to protect a variety of airborne platforms from emerging and legacy EO/IR guided surface-to-air missiles.” The budget explains that it will be the first application of DARPA’s much-touted Excalibur laser defense system, which developed lasers powerful enough to use as weapons.
Project Endurance is capable of producing drones, armed with lasers, which could shoot down inbound ICBM’s with a nuclear payload. Further, the system comes equipped with facial recognition software which is capable of reading the inscription of a dime from a 100 miles away. The implications for hunting down and dealing with political dissidents are stunning.
The Heat Ray
Controlling the electromagnetic (EM) spectrum is a major asset in military operations. The Marines recently developed and subsequently demonstrated an excruciating painful “heat ray,” a weapon that blasts intruders with a wave beam that targets skin and makes victims feel like they’ve stepped in front of a blazing oven, but without killing them.
The 95 GHz millimeter wave has a range of up to 1000 meters.
Robot soldiers are coming. Some of the prototypesn reach speeds up to 30 mph. In times of civil unrest or combat, imagine your neighborhood was forcibly evacuated, these robots would make excellent clean up troops. Armed with facial recognition, rebel forces leaders could be targeted and eliminated. There will nowhere to run and nowhere to hide.
Every Move You Make, We’ll Be Stalking You
In a nowhere to run and nowhere to hide scenario, DARPA, has developed technology which allows the military to spy on entire cities with its Large Area Coverage Optical Search-while-Track and Engage (LACOSTE). LACOSTE is a program of imaging technology that will allow for “single sensor ,day or night, ongoing tactical surveillance of all moving vehicles in an urban area. LACOSTE will eventually be able to identify individual humans in the same manner with the next generation of facial recognition software. This surveillance system is being integrated into department store video surveillance, the street light turned spy Intellistreets as well as all traffic cameras. If the globalists want to find you, you better have a “cloaking” device to hide behind. More importantly, most guerrilla activities are designed to occur under the cover of darkness. The cover of darkness is no longer an ally for future American rebels.
Meet the New Boss
Many gun owners mistakenly believe that they are going to be able to carry out acts of guerrilla warfare and/or terrorism against an illegitimate government as they begin to lock-down the country under a martial law takeover. Thwarting most ideas of a successful revolutionary effort can be found in the Battlefield Optical Surveillance System (BOSS),which is a device that can be mounted on a truck that scans and deciphers the landscape with lasers and sensors. When it sees the almost imperceptible glint of a rifle scope, or more amazingly it also recognizes you through your retinas as the detection device “paints” you with a laser beam, just prior to your demise.
And even in the unlikely event that you can slip into firing range of your intended target, the Boomerang countermeasure system uses an array of microphones which will be able to instantly decipher the speed and direction of your shot, based on the muzzle report and the shock wave of the bullet as it zips past. Immediately, Boomerang knows where the shot came from, and even what kind of weapon was utilized. This system will reduce all future sniper missions to a Kamikaze endeavor. Therefore, it is a safe bet that prior to moving globalist controlled forces into an area to conduct a roundup, BOSS and Boomerang will be employed to detect and possible resistance and eliminate the resistance by calling in a drone strike.
Nowhere to Run, Nowhere to Hide
If a drone is unavailable the XM-25 is a “smart” grenade launcher. The weapon is portable and can be carried to the battlefield by a soldier, or even better, a DARPA killer robot who has orders to search and destroy a specific target which will be identified by facial recognition. Once you are located, the X-25 possess a laser range-finder built in to the weapon that can detect the distance to the wall or trench that you’re hiding behind and then blow you and your cover to oblivion.
The “Can’t Miss” Weapon
On your last trip to your local gun range, how close to 100% was your accuracy? You might want to consider that the other side has a sniper countermeasure called EXACTO, or the Extreme Accuracy Tasked Ordnance. EXACTO is the first ever guided small caliber (“smart”) bullet. If you’ve ever watched a heat-seeking missile follow a fighter jet on the big screen, then you would comprehend the idea of DARPA’s intention for creating a maneuverable and flexible bullet, which is controlled by a guidance system, that moves with the target and adjusts in mid-flight and to eventually shatters a human skull.
Raise the Shields Scotty, Micro Air Vehicles and Killer Robots
Maybe someone in your neighborhood struck a deal with al Qaeda and obtained a couple of RPG’s that the late Ambassador from Libya sold to the terrorists before he was murdered by the administration to make the trail go cold. You might feel that you had a chance against the armored personnel carriers which will be used by DHS. Or, maybe you could shoot down a Predator B drone prior to it launching 100,000 micro drones designed to attack troops at your position. Unfortunately for your forces, the other side possesses the Gizmodo Iron Curtain (GIC) countermeasure can protect a moving vehicle from an incoming RPG, by detecting the projectile and then detonating it. The next generation of GIC’s will be able to do the same with bullets.
It does not take a rocket scientist to project the next development using this technology. which would be employed to protect drones and other planes. When the globalist forces advance upon rebel positions, they will be nearly impervious to harm and free to carry out their mission. Do you remember the 2700 armored personnel carriers obtained by DHS? In the not too distant future, we will witness the fact that these vehicles will be virtually indestructible.
The following weapons systems constitute a game changing event. There is no way that a civilian insurgent force has the capacity to counter this technology. We know about the drones and they are deadly enough, but the MAV’s and the Killer Robot Super Soldiers are virtually invulnerable. If the coming guerrilla war is to have a chance for success, the masses have to aroused into action very soon for we are only a few years away of seeing the deployment of this technology.
America does have the capacity to resist tyranny with some degree of success as our people have more resources than any other guerrilla force in world history. America has successful military experience in its ranks in sufficient numbers to make a lot of difference. However, the key to saving America is twofold: (1) America would have to abandon its “soft” mentality; and, (2) the 10% that are awake would have arouse the majority in the time we have left. The guerrilla suppressing technology is so thorough and so completely devastating, that if the globalists are allowed to bring this technology to fruition in sufficient numbers, the game is over and the fate of humanity is sealed. For America falls to the globalists, then humanity will follow. Do I think that these two challenges can mitigated? Yes, I do. Do I think we in the alternative media will arouse a sufficient number of people to make a difference? The odds are far less than 50%. If you share the same world-view as I do that the alternative media may not be successful in arousing America before it is too late, then you need to ask yourself what are you doing to prepare to survive in the NWO?

BUNDY RANCH FEDERAL LAND GRAB MOTIVE REVEALED – LINK COURTESY OF LadyRavenSDC
This rancher has been under attack from the BLM (Bureau of Land Management) and the Feds for some time. I have a much earlier posting on his struggle to keep control over HIS PROPERTY. Other posts on this from PAN; (below) however, this is a far more revealing item on his -and his family’s situation.
If the situation in Nevada is to escalate into bloodshed or even the next American Revolution, it is important to understand that these 200 armed federal agents are not in Nevada to save the tortoise.
The American people are not stupid. Our government cares nothing about the Desert Tortoise. There is no money in saving the turtles. However, like every foreign war in our history, if there is to be bloodshed there must be a cause of righteousness to justify it. Cliven Bundy doesn’t have weapons of mass destruction, and he has not, to our knowledge, taken part in any terrorist activities.
But the land he is using does have something in common with Iraq and Afghanistan.
It is rich in resources.
The other thing Mr. Bundy has in common with the many unfortunate targets of American military intervention is that he decided to no longer participate in a system that was unjust, in his opinion. Just like those who decided to try to stray away from the Petrodollar in foreign lands, Bundy decided many years ago to stop paying the federal government’s fees for something that he felt entitled to. For this, there is a consequence. You do not cross the federal government.
The constitutionality of this is debatable, but Bundy is standing on the Tenth Amendment. He believes that this land belongs to Nevada and that the Federal Government has no right to collect fees for its use. People are sick and tired of the government taking more and more while delivering less and less. They are sick of the “taxation without representation” and they are sick of the intimidation of the current police state.
So is this about tortoises in the eyes of the federal government?
Only for their useful idiots that do not know better.
And for the rest, whatever makes you sleep at night.
Natural News dropped a bombshell yesterday, and I want to give you an excerpt below. Americans are smart enough to know that our government would not send 200 armed agents to protect some tortoises. It is always about money or resources/assets that can be turned into money. Mike Adams reports:
The Bureau of Land Management says its 200-man armed siege of the Cliven Bundy ranch in Nevada is all about protecting an “endangered tortoise.” But a Natural News investigation has found that BLM is actually in the business of raking in millions of dollars by leasing Nevada lands to energy companies that engage in fracking operations.
This document from the Nevada Bureau of Mines and Geology shows significant exploratory drilling being conducted in precisely the same area where the Bundy family has been running cattle since the 1870′s. The “Gold Butte” area is indicated on the lower right corner of the document (see below), and it clearly shows numerous exploratory drilling operations have been conducted there.
What’s also clear is that oil has been found in nearby areas and possibly even within the Gold Butte area itself.
It is, of course, customary for the U.S. government to bring armed soldiers to an oil dispute. (Operation “Iraqi Freedom” for starters…) Heavily armed snipers, helicopters and militarized soldiers have never been invoked over tortoises. (Anyone who thinks this siege is about reptiles is kidding themselves.)
Here’s the map showing the oil exploration conducted on the land where Bundy runs his cattle (all the red crosshairs are oil and gas exploration drilling operations):
If you would like to read the full article, it goes on to give examples of oil and gas leases that are already happening in Nevada.
I think the issue here is transparency.
Why can’t the government just come out and say, “Hey, this is not about the tortoises, it is about the gas and oil deposits that we found on the land”?
Why? Because when this started, some 20 years ago, it was about the tortoises (so they claim) and like any pathological liar that you have ever known, the government must continue to live the lie.
To tell the truth would upset those who really do care about the environment.
The truth is that 700 cows are probably less of a threat to those tortoises than large commercial fracking companies. The truth is that Cliven Bundy is probably fighting to save those tortoises whether he knows it or not.
He has stated that it is not about grazing fees for him, but about control. If the federal government was as honest and open as Cliven Bundy, then we probably wouldn’t have ever come to this impasse.
As of yesterday afternoon Pete Santilli was reporting that 50 militia members had already arrived at the Bundy Ranch; more militia surely arrived last night and more will come today.
I don’t think many people on either side really believe this is about tortoises.
Please pray for America today. This situation could get ugly.

Message from Cliven Bundy’s daughter…. the Real Story
From Cliven Bundy’s Daughter, This is the explanation of what is and has occurred!
Hi, I have had people ask me to explain my dad’s stance on this BLM fight. Here it is in as simple of terms as I can explain it. There is so much to it, but here it is in a nutshell.
My great grandpa bought the rights to the Bunkerville allotment back in 1887 around there. Then he sold them to my grandpa who then turned them over to my dad in 1972. These men bought and paid for their rights to the range and also built waters, fences and roads to assure the survival of their cattle, all with their own money, not with tax dollars.
These rights to the land use is called preemptive rights. Somewhere down the line, to keep the cows from over grazing, came the bureau of land management. They were supposed to assist the ranchers in the management of their ranges while the ranchers paid a yearly allotment which was to be use to pay the BLM wages and to help with repaires and improvements of the ranches.
My dad did pay his grazing fees for years to the BLM until they were no longer using his fees to help him and to improve. Instead they began using these money’s against the ranchers. They bought all the rest of the ranchers in the area out with their own grazing fees. When they offered to buy my dad out for a penence he said no thanks and then fired them because they weren’t doing their job. He quit paying the BLM but, tried giving his grazing fees to the county, which they turned down.
So my dad just went on running his ranch and making his own improvements with his own equipment and his own money, not taxes. In essence the BLM was managing my dad out of business. Well when buying him out didn’t work, they used the indangered species card. You’ve already heard about the desert tortoise.
Well that didn’t work either, so then began the threats and the court orders, which my dad has proven to be unlawful for all these years. Now they’re desperate. It’s come down to buying the brand inspector off and threatening the County Sheriff. Everything they’re doing at this point is illegal and totally against the constitution of the United States of America.
Now you may be saying, “how sad, but what does this have to do with me?” Well, I’ll tell you. They will get rid of Cliven Bundy, the last man standing on the Bunkerville allotment and then they will close all the roads so no one can ever go on it again. Next, it’s Utah’s turn. Mark my words, Utah is next. Then there’s the issue of the cattle that are at this moment being stolen. See even if dad hasn’t paid them, those cattle do belong to him.
Regardless where they are, they are my fathers property. His herd has been part of that range for over a hundred years, long before the BLM even exsisted. Now the Feds think they can just come in and remove them and sell them without a legal brand inspection or without my dad’s signature on it. They think they can take them over two boarders, which is illegal, ask any trucker. Then they plan to take them to the Richfeild Aucion and sell them. All with our tax money. They have paid off the contract cowboys and the auction owner as well as the Nevada brand inspector with our tax dollars. See how slick they are? Well, this is it in a nutshell. Thanks”

Family of Gun Owners Stop Persistent Home Intruder
Posted By Philip Hodges on Apr 11, 2014
The Penas are a family of gun owners who live in Florida. Luis Pena, the dad, awoke one morning to investigate noises he heard. He saw a man trying to break in through the french doors that led do his back deck. Luis fired a warning shot to get the guy to leave, but the intruder was determined to break in.
By the time he made his way in through the doors and into their kitchen around 7 a.m., Luis’s wife and son had armed themselves, and all three of them were standing there, waiting to greet him.
The intruder, an apparently unarmed man, decided that it would be a good idea to charge at Luis, and when he did, Luis shot him in the torso and killed him.
I think this is a pretty clear cut case of self-defense. They even gave him a chance to run away by firing a warning shot. And since the guy was dumb enough to pursue three armed citizens in their own house, he got what he deserved. If they had had no guns and had to resort to calling the police, who knows what would have happened to this family in the time it took the police to show up?
