29JAN2014- Obama’s U.N. Treaty Requires US To Hand Over American Gun Registrations


(Chad Cunningham via TheLibertyDigest) –

Did you know this? During September of 2013, John Kerry “on behalf of President Obama and the United States of America”, said (lied?) at the United Nations in New York,

“This treaty will not diminish anyone’s freedom. In fact, the treaty recognizes the freedom of both individuals and states to obtain, possess, and use arms for legitimate purposes. Make no mistake, we would never think about supporting a treaty that is inconsistent with the rights of Americans … to be able to exercise their guaranteed rights under our constitution.”

But here’s where he misled you about the UN Arms Trade Treaty…

The New American reports that the UN Arms Trade Treaty was written in secret by the Obama/Hillary Clinton State Department, along with Russia, China, France and Britain.

Not exactly a lineup of champions of liberty.

What does the treaty actually say?

Article 2 defines the conventional arms covered, which include battle tanks, 
artillery systems, combat aircraft, 
attack helicopters, warships, missiles — and “small arms and light weapons.

Article 3 of the treaty places UN prohibitions on “ammunition/munitions fired, launched or delivered by the conventional arms (including small arms) covered under Article 2.”

Article 4 puts all “parts and components” of weapons (including small arms) within the scheme.

Several places in the treaty text, including Article 5, require all countries to “establish and maintain a national control system, including a national control list.” Moreover, it declares, “Each State Party is encouraged to apply the provisions of this Treaty to the broadest range of conventional arms.”

Article 5, Section 4 says each State Party “shall provide its national control list to the Secretariat, which shall make it available to other States Parties.”

The way I read this is it means our federal government will provide the guns and ammo registration list to the UN, which will provide it to Russia, China, Cuba — any and every State Party that wants it.

If Secretary Kerry assures us that this treaty will not diminish anyone’s freedom, then why do the articles within the treaty say otherwise?

This is more erosion of United States sovereignty while freedoms of Americans are being relinquished to other ‘state players’ of the United Nations to establish more ‘global’ control.

04Nov2013: Police profiling specific cars for searches in GA


GA searches1

ATLANTA — A Channel 2 Action News investigation has uncovered a new kind of profiling that could leave you sitting on the side of the road while officers search your car.

Four families, an attorney, and even an officer told investigative reporter Jodie Fleischer that officers are violating drivers’ rights based on the type of cars they drive.”It was bumper-to-bumper traffic. Blue lights pulled up behind me. We pulled over. First thing I thought was, they have the wrong person,” Shenita Hampton said.

She and her husband were driving in Gwinnett County when they were pulled over by DeKalb County police officers, including a K-9 unit. Hampton says she was made to wait outside in the rain for more than 30 minutes.

“They searched the vehicle. They didn’t find anything. They damaged the birthday cake that was in the car,” Hampton said. “Never apologized, it just was a nightmare.”

She says the K-9 left several scratches and dog hair all over her car. An officer wrote her a ticket for ‘driving too fast for conditions’ but a judge dismissed the case.

Hampton contacted Channel 2 after watching a similar news story earlier this year. Robert Brinson had recorded his DeKalb police traffic stop, after the officer started asking about drugs.

“Is this normal procedure for someone to get pulled over for a traffic ticket and ya’ll detain them?” Brinson asked on the video.

“We didn’t detain you. We asked you about drugs. We are just going off of these clues and everything else,” the officer replied. The officer never said what those clues were.

Brinson was late for a work appointment and admits he was speeding when the officer stopped him on Interstate 20 near Panola Road. It took just eight minutes to write Brinson’s ticket, but then he was made to wait on the side of the road for an hour for a K-9 to arrive to search for drugs.

“And I asked him, is this normal procedure to search people for drugs once you pull them over for speeding? He was like ‘If you don’t have anything why can’t we search?'” Brinson said.

“I was actually kind of shocked that so many people was going through this,” said driver Fred Williamson.

Gwinnett police stopped Williamson to measure his window tint as he and his wife were driving to pick up a prescription. He had left his wallet at home, but recited his personal information to the officer from memory. Then, he says the officer asked if he could search for drugs.

“Most people would say, if you don’t have anything why not go ahead and let them search it? Because that’s my right to refuse them,” said Williamson, adding that the officer began searching him, his wife and his car anyway.

“I’m still constantly telling him I do not give you consent to search my car and that’s when he pulled his Taser out and he pointed it at me. He told me to turn around and put my hands behind my back, and he walked over and placed me in handcuffs,” Williamson said, “After he didn’t find anything, that’s when he came back and he took the handcuffs off of me.”

In all three of the above cases, police found nothing during the search. All of the drivers filed police department complaints. All were driving Dodge Chargers. 

“I had never heard of car profiling, not until now,” Williamson said.

Another Gwinnett police officer who witnessed the search filed a complaint against the officer who did it. In a written report, an internal affairs investigator admitted Williamson’s ‘vehicle would draw the attention of police officers.’

“He just said you’re more likely to be pulled over because of the Dodge Charger and because of the theft of Dodge Chargers and because of the way they’re built they’re more likely to have a bunch of drugs in them,” Williamson said.

“To suggest that driving a particular type of car indicates you’re committing a crime is ridiculous,” said attorney Mark Bullman, who has already filed a lawsuit against DeKalb County, alleging a pattern of illegal car searches by officers.

“Your right as a driver is to say ‘I don’t consent to you searching my vehicle.’ They don’t have a right to search if there is not reasonable suspicion,” said Bullman.

But a metro-area K-9 officer told Channel 2 he is often asked to provide that ‘suspicion’ by having his dog show up and alert on the outside of the car, which gives officers the authority to search the inside.

“They’re hitting when they shouldn’t be hitting and then the second issue is that the handlers are cuing the dogs, causing them to hit and then using that as the impetus to then improperly or illegally search the vehicle,” the officer said, asking not to be identified.

He said he’s also noticed a pattern.

“Your Chargers, certain Chevy vehicles we’re seeing, your Challengers, and vehicles of that nature. They’re being targeted specifically because young black men are driving those vehicles,” the officer said.

Tenesha Walker says officers walked up to her Dodge Charger while she was lost and trying to turn around in a DeKalb County neighborhood.

“They asked me if I had any weapons or drugs in my vehicle… I was shocked,” said Walker, who was working as a 911 operator for DeKalb police at the time.

She says officers shined a flashlight into the backseat of her car, during daylight, to look around.

“I wrote a letter to internal affairs and I stated that if I had tinted windows and chrome rims I believe that it would have been worse,” said Walker.

In all four complaints, the departments cleared the officer of any wrongdoing.

Shenita Hampton said she’s not willing to take the risk, “My husband and I, we decided to get rid of [the car] because we’re hearing more and more stories of Chargers being pulled over, and I didn’t want to go through that anymore.”

28AUG2013: California Gun Owner’s Home Invaded by DOJ as Gov Gun Confiscation Begins


(Intellihub) – This is my personal recollection, witnessing a man having his guns confiscated, as well as an important message to all the agents of the government- the police officers, the DOJ and DHS agents, and anyone else who might follow government orders.

LOS ANGELES, CA - JUNE 25: Los Angeles Police Department SWAT team members search door to door during a massive manhunt for a suspect who attempted to kill two detectives on June 25, 2013 in Los Angeles, California. The shooting happened in the early morning hours as the two detectives were ambushed and slightly injured outside the Los Angeles Police Department's Wilshire Station, prompting the closure of a 25-square-block area in the Mid-City section of Los Angeles.

LOS ANGELES, CA – (Photo by Kevork Djansezian/Getty Images)

In California, there is a program called APPS in effect by the Department of Justice, to confiscate guns from anyone they can, searching through medical records for any hint of mental instability in order to take guns from citizens.

Around early August 2013, there was an incident at my residence, in which the owner of my house, a 58-year-old man who has chosen to remain anonymous, had his guns confiscated from him by a gang of DOJ agents. It was about 3 pm, here in Sacramento, California. A friend and I were sitting in my room, about to go somewhere.

When we got up, I looked out the window through the blinds and observed that a man in heavy military gear was standing right outside the window, hiding behind the garage in a tactical, aggressive position, as if someone might shoot him when the front door opens. Soon after this disturbing observation, the doorbell rang.

The home owner answered, and let the heavily armed Department of Justice agents in when they asked, unfortunately forgetting to request that they get a warrant. My friend and I stayed in my room, observing that there was a van full of agents in front of our residence, and that the heavily armed man in front of the garage was staying in that position, ready to shoot one of us for whatever reason they see fit.

We then left my room, and asked one of the agents why they were here, to which he replied “We’re just here to clear something up.” Then, i asked ” Is that really all you can say? Do you think one of us did something illegal?” to which he robotically repeated “We’re just here to clear something up.” Instinctively, my friend and I left our residence (he lives here too), while the agents talked with the homeowner. The homeowner is a 58-year-old man, my friend’s father.

He owned several guns, kept properly in a safe, before these government agents came to forcibly strip him of his right to defend his life with his guns. So after we left the residence, we went up the street to sit down and think about what was happening. At this point, we didn’t even know why the agents were there. It was quite stressful, violating, disturbing. We were concerned that maybe our rooms would be torn apart and searched, or maybe my laptop and notebooks would be confiscated because I am a journalist critical of government tyranny.

None of us do anything illegal, so this was very unexpected. After a while of speculating about why our house was invaded, we received a call from the homeowner, explaining that the agents were there to confiscate every one of his guns, because 6 months ago, the homeowner had checked himself into a mental hospital for a brief period of hard times. However, this 58-year-old man is absolutely peaceful, sane, and constitutionally warranted to bear arms. But apparently now in California, if you EVER get any kind of treatment for something involving mental health, there’s a good chance that militarized men with guns will take your guns on behalf of the US government.

The State of California is spending 24 million tax payer dollars a year to run a DOJ program called APPS, to go to people’s homes, and disarm anyone with even a hint of ‘mental instability’. This is what I witnessed, what this homeowner was a victim of. “it’s being billed as going after dangerous people,” says Chuck Michel, a civil rights attorney. “And for the most part, with some exceptions, admittedly, it’s NOT going after dangerous people.

It’s not making society any safer.” Let’s put this in some real perspective the US government, the people responsible for confiscating weapons from peaceful people who have a clear constitutional right to bear arms, have a long, violent criminal record. Put in perspective, it is so far beyond backwards, so far beyond ridiculous, that this government will call citizens who have never committed acts of violence, potentially dangerous.

It is such disturbing hypocrisy, if you know that the US government has killed millions of people, many being completely innocent. Between 245,000 and 495,000 innocent civilians died in the Vietnam war alone, and who knows how skewed these figures are. Half a million CHILDREN died in Iraq during the US sanctioning them in the 90′s.

This means of course, the US government used force against people trying to bring these starving and dying people supplies, food, and other necessities. The point is, how can the US government claim that the citizens are a threat, a 58-year-old man with no violent criminal history, when the US government is one of the most violent, murderous, dangerous bodies of people in the history of the world?

That is no exaggeration, that is fact. It is very obvious to some people, why this gun confiscation is beginning, why a lot of politicians are pushing for ‘gun control’, or ‘ complete government gun monopolization the reason is, a revolution is coming, and so is an economic collapse.

They want to disarm as many people as possible, and render us defenseless, so they can turn the US a military dictatorship at the right time, when some catastrophic event, possibly a false flag, triggers something big. The people of the US, and the world for that matter, are dissatisfied with the US government like never before, and the truly powerful people pushing for gun control and confiscation know this very well.

These people at the ‘top of the pyramid’ who are ordering the DOJ to confiscate citizen’s guns, are working to stifle revolution, keep the government in power when the dollar collapses and the economy gets really bad. The people in power want a complete monopoly on force, guns, weapons. See, the people in power, the people in the white house, the past administrations and the people even more powerful than them, are wanted war criminals.

For example, basically the entire Bush administration is wanted in Malaysia, after a huge, groundbreaking trial that they of course didn’t attend, receiving testimony from middle eastern victims of brutal torture,that was authorized at the highest levels of US government power. The US government has more citizens incarcerated in their prisons than any country in the entire world, any way you look at it, by ratio, percentage, or number.

Now, I have personally witnessed a man have his weapons taken from him, by heavily armed agents of the government. Though I knew about the criminality of the government before, I now feel so much more inclined to warn people about this, to wake people up to the danger we face. But most of all, I want to reach out to the people enforcing the will of this criminal government.

I want to reach out to all of you DOJ agents, DHS agents, soldiers, police, sergeants, all of you, as a fellow human being, as an equal, as a fellow citizen. Because I understand that you do not know or believe that what you are doing is wrong, I have hope that you will not enforce the worst coming orders of the government, when civil unrest hits, the dollar collapses, and when the government decides to try to turn our country into a full military dictatorship.

If you take orders to confiscate everyone’s guns, or put people in military internment camps, or detain or arrest innocent people during a time of crisis, you will be destroying your own people, destroying your own society, citizens, brothers and sisters, destroying the freedom and lives of your fellow human beings.

I know nearly all you agents, officers, soldiers, are just like me, just like the citizens you will be ordered to confiscate guns from, and you would not like to be disarmed, helpless, ordered around by armed agents of the government in a time of crisis. You probably think that you are making your country a safer place, or that you are doing good, but I’m sorry to say, you often aren’t, and you must wake up to that, or you might trust the government and take orders to disarm people in the future, or take orders that end up destroying us.

The officers, agents, and soldiers of Nazi Germany, Maoist China, and all other military dictatorships in history, followed orders without question. They implemented martial law, went searching through people’s homes, locked people in camps, but the very first thing they did before they could get away with all of this, is they disarmed their citizens.

Agents of those governments went door to door, confiscating guns, just like our government wants to order you to do today. Once the people are disarmed, the government can do whatever they want, as long as they have soldiers, officers, and agents willing to help them for pay.

Don’t be a mercenary, it is not worth it. Do not destroy your fellow citizen’s freedom for money, do not serve this criminal government. Do you not believe me? Do you not believe that our government would ever do something like this? Either way, you must be prepared to say no to these orders if it did happen, and I will tell you right now, it is VERY likely that the people in power in the US will try to give you Nazi-like orders.

26JUL2013: Pentagon to deploy huge blimps over Washington, DC for 360-degree surveillance

(RT) – 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.

blimps ratheon 4-1.si

 

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.

Its manufactures say JLENS “enables commanders to defend against threats including hostile cruise missiles, low-flying manned and unmanned aircraft, tactical ballistic missiles, large caliber rockets and moving surface vehicles such as boats, SCUD-launchers, automobiles and tanks.”

Affordable defense from real world threats,” Raytheon touts the system on its website.

To provide that security, though, the Army will send its integrated pair of airships — around 75 yards in length each — high into the sky carrying “powerful radars that can look deep into enemy territory.” First, however, the residents of the metropolitan Washington, DC area — and those in around a dozen states stretching the mid-Atlantic into New England — will be asked to ignore a pair of sophisticated spying machines.

blimps ratheon 4-2.si

 

JLENS uses advanced sensor and networking technologies to provide 360-degree, wide-area surveillance and precision target tracking,” the Defense Department found in an unclassified audit of the system conducted in late 2011. But while that tracking is designed to go after enemy drones and spot other suspicious activity, it is also touted as being able to provide a good enough image of moving land targets — or essentially anything. In a press release from February, Raytheon said the JLENS surveillance radar can “simultaneously track hundreds of threats.”

Of course, the surveillance ship is only half of the JLENS program. That aircraft, one of the two tethered blimp-like vessles, is equipped with the appropriate lenses to wage sophisticated surveillance missions. Also included in the package is a separate ship equal in size that contains fire control radar that picks up data about incoming threats and then communicates with separate missile systems that can then wage attacks, or counter-attacks.

We’re proving blimps can see more than just the 50-yard line,” JLENS program director Doug Burgess told Popular Science this week. “We really feel like we’re at the point now — development is complete — and the system is ready to be deployed wherever it’s needed.”

blimps ratheon 4-3.si

 

According to PopSci, the JLENS already successfully completed two exercises in 2012 in which it guided a missile to shoot down other missiles — one over sea, another over land.

But while the likelihood of having one of the airships shoot down an armed drone heading for the White House seems unlikely, it’s a precaution that the Army intends on being prepared for — even at the widespread cost of losing privacy.

When the government is conducting real-time aerial surveillance within the United States,” Marc Rotenberg of the Electronic Privacy Information Center told The Huffington Post, “there are privacy issues that need to be addressed.”

Raytheon estimates the using the JLENS instead of traditional, fixed-wing surveillance aircraft, could bring the cost of operation down by as much as 700 percent.

02Jul2013 – Mayday! Russian Forces to Provide “Security” At US Events


FEMA signs deal with Russian Emergency Situations Ministry to “exchange experts” – 

UPDATE: Foreign Troops Are Already Operating Inside America

 

(Paul Joseph Watson) – As part of a deal signed last week in Washington DC between the Russian Emergency Situations Ministry and FEMA, Russian officials will provide “security at mass events” in the United States, a scenario that won’t sit well with Americans wary of foreign assets operating on US soil.

According to a press release by the Ministry of the Russian Federation for Civil Defense and Emergencies, US and Russian officials met on June 25 at the 17th Joint U.S.-Russia Cooperation Committee on Emergency Situations.

In addition to agreeing with FEMA to “exchange experts during joint rescue operations in major disasters,” the Russian Emergency Situations Ministry will also be providing “security at mass events” in the United States.

This suggests that events designated as “National Special Security Events” by the Department of Homeland Security, which include the Super Bowl, international summits such as the G8 and presidential inaugurations, will now rely partly on Russian authorities to provide security.

The meeting last week also agreed on the conclusion that US and Russian emergency authorities will increase their co-operation, “in order to respond efficiently to all kinds of disasters.”

The use of foreign troops or other officials in a law enforcement capacity providing “security” inside the United States is illegal under Posse Comitatus. Capt. William Geddes of the U.S. Army Reserve acknowledged last year that it is against federal law to use US troops to conduct police patrols, despite the fact that such occurrences are becoming increasingly common. The use of foreign troops is an even more clear cut violation of Posse Comitatus.

Last year we reported on how Russian troops were invited to the US as part of a Fort Carson, Colorado drill focused around anti-terror training. Aside from learning how to target terrorists in America, the Russian soldiers were also out in the local community attending a baseball game in Colorado Springs.

As Mac Slavo writes, “Rumors have circulated for years about the possibility of foreign troops being deployed on U.S. soil in the event of a widespread declaration of a national emergency. For quite some time there have been anecdotal reports to support the claim that the U.N., Russia and other nations would be used in a policing capacity should some critical event befall our nation.”

“The fear should such a scenario take place has been that these soldiers would act under the banner of their own flags, ignoring the fundamental protections afforded to our citizens, leaving Americans under the jurisdiction of people who don’t speak our language or respect our fundamental rights to self defense, to be secure in our homes, and to be presumed innocent in the eyes of the law.”

Concerns about foreign troops being used on US soil have lingered ever since the release of State Department Publication 7277, which is a blueprint for the harmonization of US and Russian forces under a framework of United Nations-led global government.

Back in 2008 it was also reported that US and Canadian authorities had signed an agreement that would pave the way to using each other’s militaries on both sides of the border “during an emergency”.

Alex Jones has documented foreign troops being trained on U.S. soil to deal with “insurgents” since the late 1990′s as part of “urban warfare drills”.

Back in July 2010, our reporters covered the Operation Vigilant Guard exercises in Chicago which involved Polish troops training alongside U.S. National Guard troops in drills focused around raiding terrorists and drug dealers.

According to SFC Mark Ballard of the Illinois National Guard, the Polish forces were “integrating into some of the civil military units that are participating in this exercise” as part of Illinois’ partnership with the Republic of Poland, a relationship based around “integrative training” and blending military and civilian forces in the event of a national emergency, as well as making this process of integration with foreign troops more “visible”.
