Trying to make America the next Afghanistan? Obama is moving very fast behind the scenes.
Sooner or later Obama will go too far in what he says behind closed doors, and even some Democrats will be patriotic enough to resist him and speak out---I hope.
Someone shoot the darn thing down. Is it not enough we have an open communist president and congress gun-grabbing, spending and taxing out of control on top of 50% of Americans in some zombie-trance thinking this is all okay, before we do something to slow the despots down?
Bush Drones = Bad.
Obama Drones = Good.
Welcome to 'Situational Hypocrisy 1-a'. Please take notes, there will be a test.
Note: Inner city Democrats, (liberal) answers will be provided free of charge by Dr. Marc Lamont Hill.
This drone phenomena and its effect on the minds and opinions of what should be freemen, is very very strange.
Imagine the outrage and protest if Federal, State and Local governments launched a program to fly fleets of helicopters 24hrs/day above us filming and listening to anyone, anywhere, anytime, with sensors and cameras so precise the pilots could id faces, hear our conversations and read our cellphone screens. But do all of this with a drone and no one seems to care.
Imagine the outrage and protest if it were discovered that the President of the United States, with sole will and whim, was sending CIA teams and commando teams into any foreign country, assassinating anyone he chose. But do this with a drone, and its cool.
What is it with drones? Do they magically absolve us of any moral, ethical or legal conscience?
Strange and troubling to me.
I think the question we should all be asking each other an ourselves is what can we do to stop this?
Britain has cameras all over public places and still has a huge crime problem. Like all of these ideas for during or after crime they do not prevent it. Crime prevention starts at home with a good home and a solid base for children to grow up in.
Our schools at one time too were a good place, but our current society situation shows that boat has sailed. This will not change crime, it will not stop crime, people that grow up under surveillance simply except it and get on with whatever crime they are going to do, again look to Britain for an example.
This upheaval of society by the left is meant to break down civilized families, neighborhoods, communities, towns, etc., obviously it is working. Then people will give the left control in order to have a sense of security. Only there is no security and it is too late to get back what rights were given up.
We follow Mark Levin's suggestion and challenge in court if needed, every move made against our freedoms and our country! We must take actions, there is no one else to take up the fight we are the last line of defense, but we are many, we are diverse in our talents, eye's, ears, and we are everywhere!
Give the left a fight today, tomorrow is to late and all will be lost!
There was a case in Atlanta of a man going through toll booths wearing a monkey mask so he couldn't be identified legally. I think I may have to look into one of those masks soon.
Our local police dept. had to sell the little two man helicopter they purchased several years back because the city could not afford to maintain the thing. Now cities are lining up for one of these things but are cutting back on police and fire fighters. This makes no sense what so ever which tells me it is guaranteed to go through.
Has anyone asked the obvious common sense question..... Why are we spying on Americans??????
And who is the "WE" in that question?
MEANWHILE - a Reuters-offshoot and official global warming/climate change propaganda outlet linked on Right Scoop's Breaking News page reports:
"AlertNet US government risks financial exposure from climate change"
"AlertNet Warming seas frustrate Zanzibar's seaweed farmers"
These well-funded groups with high-sounding names continually spew this false science every day.
These groups are part of the global warming pseudo-science cult and probably absorb (and waste) more of your very own tax dollars than the units of carbon monoxide you exhale every year.
What's more, like every other dispenser of Political Correctness (punitive conformity), they DEMAND you go along with and pay for their follies, frauds and false premises.
If the government flies armed drones across American skies, then I reserve the right to fly my own armed drones across American skies. I wouldn't want to let the government get the upper hand, should they decide to start a civil war with the people.
The LIV's will be happy with that, because the BHO government will sell this as making people 'more secure', and helping to chase criminals.
Of course they won't say who will be the 'criminals' ... like, law abiding gun owners ....
And the cry from the left will be that you've got nothing to fear if you haven't done anything wrong.
Are there no lawyers around who can attack this as invasion of privacy?
US attorneys tend to be overwhelmingly Dem :(
To your point, the gov't may well make the argument that gun ownership is no longer needed because the drones will identify the criminals before 911 help arrives.
I'm sure they will.
It's well known that we're the most observed people in the world here in the UK, thanks to the CCTV cameras everywhere. After the first outcries, people just got used to it. And yep, they were sold as 'preventing crimes', to make us feel safe.
Thing is - the police who observe the CCTV screens will see a crime happening in real time, but they're not there to prevent it! All they can do is catch the villains later. Or not, in most cases. So - a huge waste of money, a huge invasion of privacy, and no crime prevention.
At least we can count ourselves lucky that these cameras can't shoot us as we go about our business.
Drones on the other hand ...
"Big Brother is watching" now has new meaning and I personally don't trust the govt, so methinks this is nothing more than Obama's tyrannical obsession to rule the world. Of course, there are people in the Republican party who are as power hungry as the Dems. I would remind both parties there is Someone who watches over us and Who is watching them watching us.
"And the Lord shall help them, and deliver them: he shall deliver them from the wicked, and save them, because they trust in him." Ps. 37:40 KJV
I wouldn't trust barry or his administration on any level. My husband and I are doing something we wouldn't have thought of doing 5 years ago. We're stockpiling food and other necessities.
Here's a headline from our local paper this past summer:
"Alpena could become national leader in unmanned aircraft development"
We have a Combat Readiness Center here which is where they plan on doing it.
Maybe Gutfeld was right when he said (half-jokingly I think) that pretty soon everyone will have their own personal mini-drones. Doesn't seem all that crazy now.
oh oh! i best take down my anti-obama signs from my yard. or better yet just post them on my roof top. that way obama knows for sure where to aim. had enough gov't yet?
Just make sure that they look like the ones the 'rappers' have sticking out from under their pants and you'll be fine. ;-) ;-)
According to Mr. Brennan if you're attending an anti-government rally in an American city the administration may decide to drone strike you and kill you with Hellfire missiles as your leaving the meeting. Note: they already do this in Pakistan and Yemen (so called "signature strikes") and assert the authority to do it in America. Sen. Rand Paul is trying to stop them!
Anyone remember this scary TV show? http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rover_(The_Prisoner)
Is that kind of control/domination the O-team dreams/plans for us?
George Orwell may have been a prophet.
Drones are a double edges sword. They can do a lot of good trying to find people that are lost, searching for murderers on the lose like what recently happened, maybe even helping putting out forest fires.
But in the wrong hands they can be used for evil especially by government. Maybe this is an area where we do need some new laws to restrict when , how and what the government can use drones for.
It's been that way since Cain killed Abel with a stone. Muslims still kill by stoning.
A lowly stone can be used to build or kill. Same reason as in the past---it's not the stone that should be banned--it's the holder of the stone that matters.
Great idea, too bad the gov't passes the laws not us and they will NEVER restrict themselves, only the sheeple.
I agree with Scoop, they should be used VERY selectively and then only with the proper Court order (as in the presentation of compelling evidence).
Believe me...the ONLY reason the media informed us drones were being used in the Dorner search was as a sales pitch for them to the American people... "See! They make us safe"
I'm just a citizen who wants to be able to walk in the neighborhood or talk to friends without an unknown person viewing a screen watching us.
It always starts out with alleged good intentions...then someone comes along and abuses the whole system.
