Actually “predator drone” has two meanings in colonial america. It’s an excellent description of the statists and sheep in wolves’ clothing who are oblivious to the economic forces bearing down on this country, and who will carry out whatever orders are given from whoever wears a funny hat or poses in front of a flag. Perfect pawns in someone else’s game.
Drones on domestic surveillance duties are already deployed by police and corporations. In time, they will likely be weaponised.
People often ask me, in terms of my argument about “ten steps” that mark the descent to a police state or closed society, at what stage we are. I am sorry to say that with the importation of what will be tens of thousands of drones, by both US military and by commercial interests, into US airspace, with a specific mandate to engage in surveillance and with the capacity for weaponization – which is due to begin in earnest at the start of the new year – it means that the police state is now officially here.
In February of this year, Congress passed the FAA Reauthorization Act, with its provision to deploy fleets of drones domestically. Jennifer Lynch, an attorney at the Electronic Frontier Foundation, notes that this followed a major lobbying effort, “a huge push by […] the defense sector” to promote the use of drones in American skies: 30,000 of them are expected to be in use by 2020, some as small as hummingbirds – meaning that you won’t necessarily see them, tracking your meeting with your fellow-activists, with your accountant or your congressman, or filming your cruising the bars or your assignation with your lover, as its video-gathering whirs.
Others will be as big as passenger planes. Business-friendly media stress their planned abundant use by corporations: police in Seattle have already deployed them.
An unclassified US air force document reported by CBS (pdf) news expands on this unprecedented and unconstitutional step – one that formally brings the military into the role of controlling domestic populations on US soil, which is the bright line that separates a democracy from a military oligarchy. (The US constitution allows for the deployment of National Guard units by governors, who are answerable to the people; but this system is intended, as is posse comitatus, to prevent the military from taking action aimed at US citizens domestically.) ….
At the risk of being nauseatingly repetitive, all of this pre-hitlerian jackbooted takeover is justified by the utterly scientifically disprovable fable of the official story of 9/11. Clearly, the only people in a position to neutralize NORAD or destroy crucial SEC records of pre-9/11 “puts” or plant tons of incindiary thermite in the WTC towers or steal military grade weaponized anthrax from a US bioweapons lab or orchestrate such a transparently laughable media coverup are moles inside the government and their corporate controllers. Therefore, any “peace activist” who refuses to look at the evidence of a false flag operation which is now available on a silver platter for anyone to see is not really an activist at all, but a statist, a “loyal” pawn of traitors and mass murderers who are parading around in the open. I guess nazi germany was full of them.
Look behind the throne: this is a coup in progress by the same interests which shipped our industrial infrastructure to china.
