“In fact the last time we saw similar systems go down was during the attacks on the World Trade Center (WTC) and the Pentagon, Sept. 11, 2001.”

DoD gives last-minute notice to FAA before going dark
WASHINGTON, DC (INTELLIHUB) — Air Traffic Collision Avoidance Systems (TCAS) and Automatic Dependent Surveillance-Broadcasts (ADS-B) will be down or spotty in 5 states, extending up to 200 miles off shore of the Eastern Seaboard, until Oct. 1, according to a NOTAM issued Sept. 1 by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA).
The NOTAM reads in part:

“It amazes me how lying scum Governments still get dumb/innocent volunteer recruits to be sacrificed…..
Most, will be dead, but at least we now know they were killed by their own loving Government & Monarch/President, whom they swore to serve & protect. Lambs to the slaughter, or cannon fodder….you choose.”
– U.S. Nerve Gas Hit Our Own Troops in Iraq (Newsweek, March 27, 2015):
During and immediately after the first Gulf War, more than 200,000 of 700,000 U.S. troops sent to Iraq and Kuwait in January 1991 were exposed to nerve gas and other chemical agents. Though aware of this, the Department of Defense and CIA launched a campaign of lies and concocted a cover-up that continues today.
A quarter of a century later, the troops nearest the explosions are dying of brain cancer at two to three times the rate of those who were farther away. Others have lung cancer or debilitating chronic diseases, and pain.
More complications lie ahead.
– Facebook mind control experiments linked to DoD research on civil unrest (RT, July 2, 2014):
Facebook’s experiment on over half-a-million unsuspecting users has taken a new twist with the revelation that a researcher connected to a Department of Defense-funded program to use the military to quell civil unrest also participated in the study.
Social media sites exploded over the weekend after it was revealed that Facebook, no stranger to controversy of late, secretly manipulated posts being seen by nearly 700,000 users in 2012 in order to allow researchers to study how emotional states are transmitted over the platform.
Results of the week-long study conducted by researchers at Facebook, Cornell University, and the University of California appeared in the June edition of the journal ‘Proceedings of the National Academy of Scientists’ (PNAS) under the rather insidious title, ‘Experimental evidence of massive-scale emotional contagion through social networks’.
Yes, it is difficult to guess who really is behind CIAbook.

– Was The Department Of Defense Behind Facebook’s Controversial Manipulation Study? (Liberty Blitzkrieg, July 1, 2014):
I’ve spent pretty much all day reading as much as possible about the extremely controversial Facebook “emotional contagion” study in which the company intentionally altered its news feed algorithm to see if it could manipulate its users’ emotions. In case you weren’t aware, Facebook is always altering your news feed under the assumption that there’s no way they could fill your feed with all of your “friends’” pointless, self-absorbed, dull updates (there’s just too much garbage).
As such, Facebook filters your news feed all the time, something which advertisers must find particularly convenient. In any event, the particular alteration under question occurred during one week in January 2012, and the company filled some people’s feeds with positive posts, while others were fed more negative posts.
Once the data was compiled, academics from the University of California, San Francisco and Cornell University were brought in to analyze the results. Their findings were then published in the prestigious Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences. They found that:
– As Wall Street Looks to Copy Bitcoin, The Department of Defense Studies it as a “Terrorist Threat” (Liberty Blitzkrieg, May 7, 2014):
Two very interesting Bitcoin related articles have emerged over the past week and demonstrate the total irrationality that surrounds the status quo’s understanding of this revolutionary and liberating technology. Let’s start with the Department of Defense story, the headlines of which most of you have probably seen by now.
A division of the U.S. military known as the Combating Terrorism Technical Support Office (CTTSO), which studies threats to national security (i.e., the status quo’s grip on power) has listed Bitcoin amongst a number of potential terrorist threats. Of course, as I and many others have noted repeatedly, anything which threatens the prevailing criminal status quo will be merely labeled a “terrorist threat” in order to neutralize it. Just in case you aren’t yet convinced of how insane the folks at CTTSO are, “also on the CTTSO’s list of terrorism research topics were Android, Motorola, social media and virtual reality.” What has happened to this country…

– Pentagon Warns Increase In Terrorism Due To Global Warming (ZeroHedge, March 8, 2014):
For the past few weeks we have seen stock markets surge as macro-economic data has collapsed around the world. The ‘excuse’ given for this apparent dichotomy – weather. But now it seems “weather” is to blame for other problems in the world too. As Russia Today reports, in its latest Quadrennial Defense Review, the US Department of Defense (DoD), stressed threats to global stability and American hegemony posed by climate change warning that that an erratic climate will likely cause increased “terrorist activity,” among other impacts…“The pressures caused by climate change will influence resource competition while placing additional burdens on economies, societies, and governance institutions around the world…these effects are threat multipliers.”
– Military drones set to get stronger chemical weapons and could soon make their OWN decisions during missions (Daily Mail Jan 2, 2014):
Drones that can choose to deviate from a set mission and hunt in ‘swarms’ could be patrolling skies within the next 25 years, according to a new roadmap.
Unmanned aircraft carrying stronger chemical weapons could also be on the horizon, the U.S. Department of Defence (DoD) revealed in its Unmanned Systems Integrated Roadmap.
– 3 Ridiculous Things that Make You a “High Threat” According to the Pentagon (Liberty Blitzkrieg, Aug 9, 2013):
You’ve gotta love the U.S. government. According to a training test developed by the Pentagon, there are three main things to be aware of when confronting a potential terrorist. 1) Overseas travel. 2) Financial difficulties. 3) Criticism of U.S. foreign policy.
I wish I was making this up. Specifically, this information comes from training slides created by the Defense Information Systems Agency (DISA), and further demonstrates the complete panic and paranoia rampant at the highest levels of the hopelessly crony and corrupt U.S. government. Unfortunately for us all, several million federal employees have been already subject to this preposterous training in order to identify “insider threats.”
– Pentagon to deploy huge blimps over Washington, DC for 360-degree surveillance (RT, July 25, 2013):
A pair of high-tech Army blimps is coming to the greater Washington, DC area, and soon they will be able to provide the military with surveillance powers that spans hundreds of millions of acres from North Carolina to Niagara Falls, Canada.
The airships are part of Raytheon’s Joint Land Attack Cruise Missile Defense Elevated Netted Sensor System, or JLENS, and when all is said and done they’ll offer the United States military what the defense contractor calls “an affordable elevated, persistent over-the-horizon sensor system” that relies on “a powerful integrated radar system to detect, track and target a variety of threats.”
Raytheon has just wrapped up a six-week testing period in the state of Utah and is now sending its JLENS fleet to the Aberdeen Proving Ground in Maryland. Once there, the Army intends to get some hands-on experience that will eventually culminate in launching the pair of airships over Washington, DC.
Once above the nation’s capital, JLENS will allow the Army to see for 320 miles in any direction from 10,000 feet above the earth. The system can be set up to operate on its own for an entire month without requiring refueling, and offers the Pentagon surveillance capabilities that dwarf other options at a penny of the cost.
