Feds Piss on Bill of Rights - Politicians in both parties hide under their desks as the Constitution is abolished
- 4th Amendment is shredded by Big Government.
- The GOP created and funded Department of Homeland Security used a predator drone to spy on a rancher in a dispute over six cows. . . . yes, six God Damn fucking cows.
The Bill of Rights is being abolished right before our eyes by the corrupt leadership of both political parties and there is not one God Damn word out of the Media or the Beltway to defend the Constitution.
A North Dakota court has preliminarily upheld the first-ever use of an unmanned drone to assist in the arrest of an American citizen.
A judge denied a request to dismiss charges Wednesday against Rodney Brossart, a man arrested last year after a 16-hour standoff with police at his Lakota, N.D., ranch. Brossart's lawyer argued that law enforcement's "warrantless use of [an] unmanned military-like surveillance aircraft" and "outrageous governmental conduct" warranted dismissal of the case, according to court documents obtained by U.S. News.
Court records state that last June, six cows wandered onto Brossart's 3,000 acre farm, about 60 miles west of Grand Forks. Brossart allegedly refused to return the cows, which led to a long, armed standoff with the Grand Forks police department. At some point during the standoff, Homeland Security, through an agreement with local police, offered up the use of an unmanned predator drone, which "was used for surveillance," according to the court documents.
Brossart faces felony terrorizing and theft of property charges. (US News.com)
Death from Above
The US Navy, which has just revealed the latest development in stealth drone technology, is using a logo for its unmanned aviation program that literally features the angel of Death, clothed in a black cloak with a hood, holding aloft a large scythe.
The logo for the Navy’s Program Executive Office for Unmanned Aviation and Strike Weapons was photographed and posted to Instagram by Wired writer Spencer Ackerman.
The image of the logo is unaltered and can be verified as genuine on this official document, a bio of rear admiral Tim Heely, the Navy’s drone Program Executive Officer.
Judging by the branding, however, there seems to be more of a focus on striking (and killing) than on surveillance. (Infowars.com)
Domestic Spy Drones
- DHS claims that unconstitutional spying by domestic drones is needed for "public safety."
- There are already 63 unmanned drone bases scattered across 20 states.
- Both politcal parties vote to fund the spy drone program.
Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano said during a hearing last week that flying unmanned aircraft inside the US could be the next step to ensuring “public safety.”
Sec. Napolitano weighed in on the topic of unmanned aerial vehicles during this week’s Committee on Homeland Security and suggested that implementing UAVs for domestic surveillance could the next step in the United States’ amazingly accelerating drone program.
The Federal Aviation Administration is currently considering ground rules that will outline how the FAA can govern domestic drone use, and by 2020 they expect to see 30,000 UAVs soaring through US airspace. Speaking before a House panel Sec. Napolitano suggested that deploying UAVs proactively to put an extra set over locales nowhere near America’s border may in fact be the next move.
“With respect to Science and Technology, that directorate, we do have a funded project,” she said. “I think it’s in California, looking at drones that could be utilized to give us situational awareness in a large public safety [matter] or disaster, such as a forest fire, and how they could give us better information.”
In a transcript of the secretary’s testimony made available after her address, Napolitano admits that the US has expanded their use or surveillance drones on America’s border with Canada in recent years, now letting UAVs monitor 950 miles of Washington State’s boundary line.
Bill of Rights Abolished
The Department of Homeland Security is researching the use of spy drones to monitor and provide surveillance on major 'public safety events.'
This has led some to worry that thousands of unmanned aircraft could be used by the federal government to quell civil unrest in the run-up to the November 6 presidential election reports RT News-USA.
There are already 63 unmanned drone bases scattered across 20 states in the US reports the UK Daily Mail.
The Federal Aviation Administration has paved the way for the use of drone aircraft in the US and said up to 30,000 of the vehicles could fill the skies by the end of the decade.
Most of the current drones bases are housed at military installations or run by Homeland Security or local law enforcement agencies.
