Big Brother DHS And DOD Want To Open US Skies To Spy Drones

Just in case Americans want to resist the New World Order.


Government under pressure to open US skies to unmanned drones despite safety concerns

WASHINGTON (AP) — Unmanned aircraft have proved their usefulness and reliability in the war zones of Afghanistan and Iraq. Now the pressure’s on to allow them in the skies over the United States.

The Federal Aviation Administration has been asked to issue flying rights for a range of pilotless planes to carry out civilian and law-enforcement functions but has been hesitant to act. Officials are worried that they might plow into airliners, cargo planes and corporate jets that zoom around at high altitudes, or helicopters and hot air balloons that fly as low as a few hundred feet off the ground.

On top of that, these pilotless aircraft come in a variety of sizes. Some are as big as a small airliner, others the size of a backpack. The tiniest are small enough to fly through a house window.

The obvious risks have not deterred the civilian demand for pilotless planes. Tornado researchers want to send them into storms to gather data. Energy companies want to use them to monitor pipelines. State police hope to send them up to capture images of speeding cars’ license plates. Local police envision using them to track fleeing suspects.

Like many robots, the planes have advantages over humans for jobs that are dirty, dangerous or dull. And the planes often cost less than piloted aircraft and can stay aloft far longer.

“There is a tremendous pressure and need to fly unmanned aircraft in (civilian) airspace,” Hank Krakowski, FAA’s head of air traffic operations, told European aviation officials recently. “We are having constant conversations and discussions, particularly with the Department of Defense and the Department of Homeland Security, to figure out how we can do this safely with all these different sizes of vehicles.”

US ‘Discovers’ Vast Mineral Riches Worth Nearly $1 Trillion In Afghanistan

WASHINGTON — The United States has discovered nearly $1 trillion in untapped mineral deposits in Afghanistan, far beyond any previously known reserves and enough to fundamentally alter the Afghan economy and perhaps the Afghan war itself, according to senior American government officials.

The previously unknown deposits – including huge veins of iron, copper, cobalt, gold and critical industrial metals like lithium – are so big and include so many minerals that are essential to modern industry that Afghanistan could eventually be transformed into one of the most important mining centers in the world, the United States officials believe.

An internal Pentagon memo, for example, states that Afghanistan could become the “Saudi Arabia of lithium,” a key raw material in the manufacture of batteries for laptops and BlackBerrys.

The vast scale of Afghanistan’s mineral wealth was discovered by a small team of Pentagon officials and American geologists. The Afghan government and President Hamid Karzai were recently briefed, American officials said.

While it could take many years to develop a mining industry, the potential is so great that officials and executives in the industry believe it could attract heavy investment even before mines are profitable, providing the possibility of jobs that could distract from generations of war.

Fannie Mae And Freddie Mac Worst Case Scenario Is $1 Trillion!

June 14 (Bloomberg) — The cost of fixing Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, the mortgage companies that last year bought or guaranteed three-quarters of all U.S. home loans, will be at least $160 billion and could grow to as much as $1 trillion after the biggest bailout in American history.

Fannie and Freddie, now 80 percent owned by U.S. taxpayers
, already have drawn $145 billion from an unlimited line of government credit granted to ensure that home buyers can get loans while the private housing-finance industry is moribund. That surpasses the amount spent on rescues of American International Group Inc., General Motors Co. or Citigroup Inc., which have begun repaying their debts.

“It is the mother of all bailouts,” said Edward Pinto, a former chief credit officer at Fannie Mae, who is now a consultant to the mortgage-finance industry.

BIS: Currency Collapse May Stimulate Economic Expansion

Wikipedia:

The BIS was formed in 1930, the main actors in the establishment of the BIS were the then Governor of The Bank of England, Montague Norman and his German colleague Hjalmar Schacht, later Adolf Hitler’s finance minister.

During the period 1933 – 1945, the board of directors of the BIS included Walter Funk a prominent Nazi official, and Emil Puhl, who were both convicted at the Nuremberg trials after World War II, as well as Herman Schmitz the director of IG Farben and Baron von Schroeder, the owner of the J.H.Stein Bank, the bank that held the deposits of the Gestapo. There were allegations that the BIS had helped the Germans loot assets from occupied countries during World War II.

Use ‘Google Translate’ for this:

Wikipedia (German):

In der Zeit des Nationalsozialismus von 1933 bis 1945 galt die BIZ als sehr „nazifreundlich“ mit einer einflussreichen „deutschen Gruppe“ innerhalb des Unternehmens. Zum Beispiel war Emil Puhl (der geschäftsführende Vizepräsident der Reichsbank) einer der BIZ-Präsidenten. Die BIZ übernahm 1938 nach dem „Anschluss“ Österreichs das österreichische Gold und war 1939 nach der NS-Besetzung der Tschechei auch bei der Überweisung eines Teils des tschechischen Goldes zugunsten der NS-Seite behilflich. Lord Montagu Norman, einer der Präsidenten der BIZ und gleichzeitig Leiter der Bank of England, verhinderte die Überweisung nicht. Ab April 1939 wurde der amerikanische Anwalt Thomas McKittrick in die BIZ eingegliedert, um eine demokratische Fassade vorzutäuschen. Während der Kriegszeit 1939 bis 1945 wickelte die BIZ alle notwendigen Devisengeschäfte für das Deutsche Reich ab. Es kam deshalb später zu dem offenen Vorwurf des Handels mit Raubgold (looted gold) der vom Deutschen Reich übernommenen Zentralbanken. Die Bestrebungen des US-Finanzministers Morgenthau und der norwegischen Exilregierung ab 1943, die BIZ wegen ihrer Nazifreundlichkeit aufzulösen, waren vergeblich. Der britische Finanzexperte Keynes argumentierte u.a. gegen Morgenthau, die BIZ werde für den „Wiederaufbau“ nach dem Krieg gebraucht. Erst im März 1945 wurden die Devisengeschäfte mit dem Deutschen Reich eingestellt, weil der amerikanische Druck auf die Schweiz nicht mehr abzuwenden war. Diese Nazi-Vergangenheit der BIZ wurde bis in die 1990er Jahre verschwiegen.

Currency Collapse May Stimulate Economic Expansion, BIS Says

The BIS is the Central Bank of Central Banks and answers to no government on planet earth.

June 14 (Bloomberg) — Currency collapses tend to spur a resumption of economic growth rather than fueling a decline in gross domestic product, according to the Bank for International Settlements.

Currency collapses are associated with permanent output losses of about 6 percent of GDP, on average, though the drop tends to appear beforehand, the Basel, Switzerland-based BIS said in its quarterly review yesterday.

“This suggests that it may not be the currency collapse that reduces output, but rather the factors that led to the depreciation,” Camilo E. Tovar wrote in the study. “To gain a full understanding of the implications of currency collapses on economic activity it is important to carefully examine the full circle of events surrounding the episode.”

The positive effects of a weaker currency on GDP, including making local products cheaper than imported goods, may outweigh the negative ones, such as rising inflation. Currency collapses occur when the annual exchange rate drops by about 22 percent, according to the BIS, which identified 79 such episodes, “more commonly in Africa than in Asia or Latin America,” since 1960, Tovar said.

Moody’s downgrades Greece’s credit rating to junk

parthenon_001a

ATHENS, Greece — Moody’s Investors Service slashed Greece’s credit rating to junk status on Monday in a new blow to the debt-ridden country that is under intense international scrutiny after narrowly avoiding default last month.

A Moody’s statement said it was cutting Greece’s government bond ratings by four notches to Ba1 from A3, with a stable outlook for the next 12-18 months. It was the second of the three major agencies to accord Greek bonds junk status. Standard & Poor’s did the same in late April.

The downgrades reflect concern that the country could fail to meet its obligations to cut its deficit and pay down its debt — which the Greek government says is out of the question.

Ireland: Central Bank Hid Property Crash Forecast

* Data showing boom over was buried in report

THE Central Bank buried sensational data forecasting a crash in the property market months before the housing market began to crumble in early 2007.

Last week’s report into the banking crisis by Central Bank boss Professor Patrick Honohan revealed that minutes from the bank’s financial stability group had shown that predictions of a crash in the market were deliberately left out of a crucial report in 2006.

“It was decided in 2006 to exclude from the main text of the report data and references to a likely 15 per cent house price overvaluation that was contained in a themed research paper,” according to Prof Honohan’s report.
