Creeping Coup Continues: TSA Announces “biometrics vision” for all commercial aviation travelers

This process of increasing surveillance and oppression will not stop of its own accord.   It’s a system dynamic resulting from the continuing merger of corporations and government.   A business model with guns fueled by false flags such as 9/11.

Today the US Transportation Security Administration released a detailed TSA Biometric Roadmap for Aviation Security & the Passenger Experience, making explicit the goal of requiring mug shots (to be used for automated facial recognition and image-based surveillance and control) as a condition of all domestic or international air travel.

This makes explicit the goal that has been apparent, but only implicit, in the activities and statements of both government agencies and airline and airport trade associations.

It’s a terrifyingly totalitarian vision of pervasive surveillance of air travelers at, quite literally and deliberately, every step of their journey, enabled by automated facial recognition and by the seamless collaboration of airlines and airport operators that will help the government surveil their customers in exchange for free use of facial images for their own business purposes and profits.

The  closest contemporary counterpart to what the TSA envisions for the USA is the pervasive surveillance and control of travelers in China through automated facial recognition by the Public Security Bureau….

The EU Russia China Plan to Avert Iran Oil Sanctions

It may well be that the unilateral wrecking ball politics of the Trump Administration are bringing about a result just opposite from that intended. Washington’s decision to abandon the Iran nuclear agreement and impose severe sanctions on companies trading Iran oil as of 4 November, is creating new channels of cooperation between the EU, Russia, China and Iran and potentially others. The recent declaration by Brussels officials of creation of an unspecified Special Purpose Vehicle (SPV) to legally avoid US dollar oil trade and thereby US sanctions, might potentially spell the beginning of the end of the Dollar System domination of the world economy. 

According to reports from the last bilateral German-Iran talks in Teheran on October 17, the mechanisms of a so-called Special Purpose Vehicle that would allow Iran to continue to earn from its oil exports, will begin implementation in the next days. At end of September EU Foreign Policy chief Federica Mogherini confirmed plans to create such an independent trade channel, noting, “no sovereign country or organization can accept that somebody else decides with whom you are allowed to do trade with.”

The SPV plan is reportedly modelled on the Soviet barter system used during the cold war to avert US trade sanctions, where Iran oil would be in some manner exchanged for goods without money. The SPV agreement would reportedly involve the European Union, Iran, China and Russia.

According to various reports out of the EU the new SPV plan involves a sophisticated barter system that can avoid US Treasury sanctions. As an example, Iran could ship crude oil to a French firm, accrue credit via the SPV, much like a bank. That could then be used to pay an Italian manufacturer for goods shipped the other way, without any funds traversing through Iranian hands or the normal banking system.A multinational European state-backed financial intermediary would be set up to handle deals with companies interested in Iran transactions and with Iranian counter-parties. Any transactions would not be transparent to the US, and would involve euros and sterling rather than dollars.

It’s an extraordinary response to what Washington has called a policy of all-out financial war against Iran, that includes threats to sanction European central banks and the Brussels-based SWIFT interbank payments network if they maintain ties to Iran after November 4. In the post-1945 relations between Western Europe and Washington such aggressive measures have not been seen before.It’s forcing some major rethinking from leading EU policy circles….

Hype Bombs were Exactly That: Fake Bombs for Fake News

Apparently our authority simulacrums have doubled down on the hoax.    But the cat is already out of the bag.

(Natural News) FBI Director Christopher Wary may be just as dishonest as former FIB director James Comey. (Not a typo.)

Suddenly Wray is trying to convince the world that the hoax pipe bomb props which were mailed to Democrats are really, somehow, IEDs (Improved Explosive Devices). In truth, real mail bombs don’t contain timers for the simple reason that such devices are intended to be detonated by the physical act of the recipient opening the package, not based on a specific time (since nobody knows exactly when someone will receive a package sent through the U.S. Postal Service).

Not only did these hoax pipe bombs contain mock timers crudely taped to PVC pipe; the timers had no alarm function, meaning they couldn’t even “theoretically” be used to detonate anything.

They were hoax props, in other words, not functioning explosive devices.

But the FBI is claiming no, they are (somehow) real “IEDs.”

FBI Director lies about “energetic material” and tries to techno-jargon confuse the public

The really huge red flag in all this is how FBI Director Christopher Wary resorted to techno-jargon to try to make non-explosive materials sound like explosives. In a press conference where he stated the fake pipe bombs were “not hoaxes,” he described them as containing, “energetic material that can become combustible when subjected to heat or friction.”

Wow, sounds scary, doesn’t it?

Except that in reality, almost anything can qualify as something that “becomes combustible when subjected to heat or friction.” This includes, by the way, a box of Cheerios, a loaf of bread, a tub of grease, frozen corn, old newspapers, a pair of smelly socks, a bicycle tire and even pieces of glass. All these items burn if you cook them at high enough temperatures, which is essentially what Director Wray is saying.

But none of these things are explosives. If you received a fake pipe bomb filled with Cheerios, would the Cheerios suddenly transform it into a REAL pipe bomb? According to Wray, stuffing Cheerios into a PVC pipe turns the device into an IED….

New X-ray images reveal how ‘MAGAbomber’ made crude pipe bombs out of PVC tubing and an Amazon digital clock before stuffing them with sulfur and shards of glass…

https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-6314065/New-x-ray-images-inside-pipe-bombs.html

A clock, in a mail bomb!  With no alarm function anyway.   And the “explosive” was sulfur.  This story was falling apart the day it happened.  That’s why I have to wonder whether it was intended to be exposed.   Apparently not, given the FBI’s behavior.   WTF is going on?   Did some bought-off investigator change his mind and decide to tell the truth after all?

But now they’ve doubled down on the story.  They’ve backed themselves into a corner, like the media itself.   Their edifice of crediblity is crumbling around them.   What will they try next?
