� City To Be Watched By Permanent Eye In The Sky Alex Jones' Infowars: There's a war on for your mind!

City To Be Watched By Permanent Eye In The Sky Alex Jones' Infowars
The Californian city of Lancaster will be the first to experience a “new era in law enforcement surveillance” with residents set to be watched by a permanent eye in the sky which will beam constant video footage back to police headquarters including crimes in progress as well as “scenes of mundane day-to-day life.”

A Cessna plane fitted with sophisticated video surveillance technology will fly loops around the city and send footage directly back to a Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department dispatch center. Officials plan to add a second aircraft to the arsenal at a later date.

The mayor's comments are certainly interesting... watch for what he says in the video clip.

Pentagon Takes Over Civilian Duties and Sprays Mosquitos in Florida :

Two items in news. One from Florida, one out of Texas. Both concern spraying from the skies; ostensibly to attack mosquitoes and West Nile Virus. Pentagon Takes Over Civilian Duties and Sprays Mosquitoes in Florida, and West Nile Blog: Mosquito spraying continues across North Texas.

Woman sought in tuberculosis case arrested near Maysville | Online Athens

This is a weird item: Woman sought in tuberculosis case arrested near Maysville | Online Athens

Woman has TB, was going through treatments then stopped. Various authorities determine she'll be arrested if she doesn't comply with continuing treatments; she is literally chased down and taken to an "isolation" hospital section in jail.

I'm not suggesting TB is anything to be cavalier about, but the overall tone of this item is strange. From the hunting down of a woman who flees from treatment, her arrest, and a few contradictory statements:
Lou Kudon, a spokesman for the Northeast Health District, said Wednesday that due to regulations he could not talk about Hicks or whether an investigation is being made in regards to people who Hicks has had recent contact with.

However, he said when someone has tuberculosis in the community there is usually no risk unless there is close and prolonged contact.

Usually when we have TB, we only test the household contacts because it does take prolonged exposure to get TB,” he said.

Activist Post: 5 strategies for peacefully underthrowing the status quo

Activist Post: 5 strategies for peacefully underthrowing the status quo by J. B. Vibes, author of Alchemy of the Modern Renaissance.
I've highlighted some of his points, but read the full article for more. For example:
(1) - Finding personal freedom – This should definitely be the first step, because when we find peace in our own hearts we are much better prepared and equipped to bring peace into the hearts of others.

And this one, very important. No matter in what small way you can practice this, it helps:
(2) - Practicing Agorism – Agorism is a strategy of noncompliance that uses counter economics and underground markets as a way of keeping power in the hands of the average people, thus slowly diminishing the power and relevance of the control structure.

This one, "inventing oldspeak" is the most important, to my mind. Maybe "important" is not quite the right word, for they're all important. But this one really struck me as being very powerful:
(3) - Reinventing oldspeak – When it comes to the power of words, the general population is far outmatched by the ruling class. There have been generations of work among the aristocracy completely dedicated to mastering the art of verbal manipulation and deception. They have their newspeak, which cloaks their transgressions in an air of false legitimacy, so we in turn, need to develop an oldspeak that describes reality as it is, but we need to be just as innovative and creative as those working against us.

17 Techniques of Truth Suppression

GSB: DCDave's Column 17 Techniques for Truth Suppression. Among which:
  • Dummy up. If it's not reported, if it's not news, it didn't happen.
  • Characterize the charges as "rumors" or, better yet, "wild rumors." If, in spite of the news blackout, the public is still able to learn about the suspicious facts, it can only be through "rumors." (If they tend to believe the "rumors" it must be because they are simply "paranoid" or "hysterical.")
  • Dismiss the charges as "old news."
  • Characterize the crimes as impossibly complex and the truth as ultimately unknowable.

Not on Facebook? You're a Psycho

And seeing this only a few moments after I posted on my FB page that I'm considering, not for the first time, leaving FB. Is not joining Facebook a sign you're a psychopath? Some employers and psychologists say it's 'suspicious' | Mail Online

They really want us staying stuck on the grid! Pay with cash? You're a terrorist. Collect rainwater on your property? You're jailed and fined. Don't have a cell phone? You can't even access a lot of places because the forms are set up for texting only replies. And so on. . .

So now, even though employers can use your social media presence against you, they can also use the fact you're not on Facebook or other social media as indications you might be a psycho or terrorist. Notice how this article links the killers Anders Behring Brevik (the Norwegian mass murderer) and James Holmes (see post below for interesting photo comparisons of pre-killing Holmes and the post-mass murdering Holmes) as examples of non-Facebook individuals.

And of course we have popular culture's cliche of the right wing Ted Nugent wacko types depicted as "preppers" and "militants" to trivialize those of us who try, in our little ways, to avoid getting too highly magnetized onto that grid. We're either psycho red necks or stuck in the 1960s hippies. Either way, both groups, while seemingly at far ends of the extremist spectrum, are considered lunatic fringe groups not to be taken seriously. Happy lazy dopers or testosterone driven "preppers", doesn't matter. The first group depicted as naive, the second as paranoid, but both are outsider groups that the infrastructure would have us believe are to be ignored, even while a mass suspicion lurks in the back of the collective mind.

Roseanne Barr to Speak at Chemtrails and Geo-Engineering Conference :

Roseanne Barr to Speak at Chemtrails and Geo-Engineering Conference :

In recent years, extremely elevated levels of aluminum, barium, strontium and other metallic elements have been found California, Oregon, Washington, Idaho and other regions of the northwestern U.S. and southwestern Canada. Could this be the result of such weather modification that is already taking place? And if so, why haven’t the people who live in these areas been told of such activities?

At the Consciousness Beyond Chemtrails Conference an impressive roster of concerned citizens will examine the global implications of manipulating the weather. In addition to Roseanne Barr, international bestselling author and GMO expert Jeffrey M. Smith, will discuss the alarming increase in genetically engineered foods and there will also be the world premiere of Michael Murphy’s new film, “Why in The World Are They Spraying?”
