(Dec 31 2014) - CHEMTRAILS EXPOSED: Global Geoengineering PsyOps Documented
WORLD -- From Chemtrails to Directed Energy Weapons, the System is Set on Total Control. There has been much speculation in the last few years as to the authenticity of the claims of chemtrail spraying of the ionosphere by secretive groups for unknown reasons, with such claims generally receiving the scorn of tinfoil hat insanity. Distinguished from contrails, the normal water and ice crystal formations that result from aircraft exhaust vapor, chemtrails is the popular name for aerosol spraying by planes in different layers of the atmosphere under the cover of numerous global geoengineering programs.

U.S.A. -- The U.S. military wants to build more drones and this time, they want to make drones that have a computerized mind of their own to fly around and scout for dangers. To put it in simple words, the drones of today have to be manned by a pilot with a remote control. The drones United States military aim to build, should be smart enough to navigate obstacles and reach the target all of its own accord. In short they want a Hawk in the sky.

(Dec 29 2014) - BILL COSBY, Project ARTICHOKE, MENGELE & The Dark Messiah
HOLLYWEIRD -- Bill Cosby,TVs Favorite Father, is certainly being thrown under the bus by the ILLUMINATI. He is also certainly being used as a major mass media diversion and circus so that no matter what takes place in this nations collective conscious in resistance to the blatant injustices of state sponsored police violence against people of color, and BLACK LIVES MATTER, the face of EVIL in America will always be concentrated on the face of a black man. Bill Cosby didnt necessary have to piss anyone off to be cast adrift in the sea alone on the tip an iceberg without a paddle. To set himself off from the masses as one of the gods of Mount Olympus, he had to be Aryan.

MEXICO -- It is what was widely suspected by cynical critics of the Federal government such as the writers of this blog, but now we have official confirmation that the Obama administration was using Operation Fast and Furious as an excuse to advocate for stricter gun co even as the program funneled thousands of rifles to Mexican drug cartels.

(Dec 27 2014) - Psychopolitical Warfare & the Soviet Brainwashing of the U.S.
RUSSIA -- Do you want to know how it all happened ? Do you really want to know the cause behind the rapid deterioration in the United States of America from a domestic cold war of incremental democratization, into a hot totalitarian socialist State ? Aside from an abject hatred for religion and morality, one of the root causes of the accelerated decline is "psychopolitics," the art and science of asserting and maintaining dominion over the thoughts and loyalties of individuals, officers, bureaus, and masses, and the effecting of the conquest of enemy nations through "mental healing."

(Dec 27 2014) - Climate Scientist Blows Whistle on Chemtrails
WORLD -- Covert Aerosol Geoengineering is now completely out of the closet. Dr. Kirkby's public announcement to a group of scientists that Jet aircraft are dumping aerosols (aka Chemtrails) high in the atmosphere shines a bright light on the IPCC's corrupt pseudoscience of so-called "Climate Change". Dr. Tim Ball's book: "The Deliberate Corruption of Climate Science" provides a detailed look into the continuing "Climate-Gate" of fraud.

MALAYSIA -- A former airline boss and writer claims the US downed Malaysia Airlines flight MH370 because the military feared it had been taken over by hackers and was about to be used in a 9/11-style attack. Marc Dugain, the former chief executive of now-defunct Proteus Airlines, said the jumbo jet was shot down near a US military base on the remote island of Diego Garcia in the Indian Ocean after it was hacked.

(Dec 23 2014) - How to Know if Your Car Can Be Hacked
U.S.A. -- In our day and age, we are highly aware of the danger of having our computers and mobile devices hacked, but what about our cars? Car hacking is a growing possibility for new cars with on-board computer systems. As new vehicles move into the digital age, more and more problems are presented when it comes to hacking these systems and putting the driver's personal information at risk. Not only do we have to worry about our information being vulnerable, but the actual safety of the car is at a higher risk as well.

(Dec 20 2014) - Air Force admits nuke flaws, but will fixes work ?
WASH D.C. -- Faced with one of its biggest challenges in years repairing a troubled nuclear missile corps the Air Force has taken an important first step by admitting, after years of denial, that its problems run deep and wide. Less certain is whether it will find all the right fixes, apply them fully and convince a doubting force of launch officers, security guards and other nuclear workers that their small and narrow career field is not a dead end. The stakes are huge.

C.I.A. -- Wikileaks on Thursday has made public a never-before-seen internal review conducted by the U.S. Central Intelligence Agency that looked at the agencys drone and targeted assassination programs in places like Afghanistan, Pakistan, Yemen, Somalia, and elsewhere. The agencys own analysis, conducted in 2009, found that its clandestine drone and assassination program was likely to produce counterproductive outcomes, including strengthening the very extremist groups it was allegedly designed to destroy.

(Dec 18 2014) - Neuroscientist trying to upload his Brain to a computer ?
U.S.A. -- Humans, if you hadn't already noticed, have stopped evolving. As David Attenborough recently reminded us, our species is the firstby our free willto remove itself from the process of natural selection, therefore stunting evolution. That, accompanied by Steven Hawking and Elon Musk's theories that robots will supersede human intelligence and become our biggest existential threat, paints a pretty bleak vision of the future. Neuroscientist Randal Koene has the answer. Instead of allowing robots to become our cold, lifeless overlords, why don't we just become partially robotic ourselves?

(Dec 15 2014) - Climate Engineering Pilot Disclosure ???
WORLD -- The two letters below were forwarded to The HAARP Report, these texts were sent to me by the administrator of that site. The message source claims to be relaying statements from a US military pilot that is part of the ongoing aerosol spraying nightmare occurring in our skies day in and day out. Are the statements authentic? Is the source credible? I have no way of confirming in either case. This being said, the dots do connect with what I believe these pilots are being told. The power structure command always conveys a very simple message to troops, its us or them. This is the basic theme below that is described by the alleged pilot.

DALLAS -- Barrett Lancaster Brown is a writer and activist who possesses a unique combination of ability, courage, wit and determination. This resume of personality traits turned him into a threatening individual once he decided to direct much of that energy against the prevailing corrupt status quo. This is also why hes one of the roughly roughly 2.4 million Americans locked up within these United States; many of them for non-crimes.

U.S.A. -- When Ali Mohamed, the most embarrassing Muslim spy to ever join Americas ranks, was caught and trusted experts acknowledged his deep involvement with Islamic terrorism, specifically Al-Qaeda, the government covered up his role as a double agent. Its an old story many consider dust in the wind until of course now when Shoebat.com, in this explosive discovery, exclusively reveals that the same Ali Mohamed is connected to a man whose organization is implicated in the Benghazi attacks.

(Dec 12 2014) - CIA enhanced interrogations have long history
WASH D.C. -- The public controversy surrounding the release of the Senate Intelligence Committees summary-report on detentions and interrogations continues to feed media headlines. But, as veteran intelligence correspondent Jeff Stein notes in his Newsweek column, there is one crucial aspect missing from the debate: historical precedent. Stein observes what many commentators have missed, namely a reference in the 500-page document to KUBARK. KUBARK is in fact a coded reference used by the CIA in the 50's and 60's to refer to itself. The KUBARK Counterintelligence Interrogation manual was produced by the Agency to train civilian and military intelligence officers in what the CIA called coercive counterintelligence interrogation of resistant sources.

U.S.A. -- According to what Im hearing from several sources in my network of contacts, the U.S. gov't is putting systems in place to black out online news sites like Natural News, Drudge Report, The Blaze and many others. A practice run that took place earlier this week in California has already achieved this result and confirmed the technical ability to make it happen at will. The recent outage of news sites experienced by internet users in California was reported by this article on BeforeItsNews.com and confirmed by The Washington Times, The Blaze and other sites.

(Dec 04 2014) - How the NSA Hacks Cellphone Networks Worldwide
NSA -- In March 2011, two weeks before the Western intervention in Libya, a secret message was delivered to the National Security Agency. An intelligence unit within the U.S. militarys Africa Command needed help to hack into Libyas cellphone networks and monitor text messages. For the NSA, the task was easy. The agency had already obtained technical information about the cellphone carriers internal systems by spying on documents sent among company employees, and these details would provide the perfect blueprint to help the military break into the networks.

(Dec 02 2014) - Smoking Gun Proof Of Atmospheric Spraying
AMERICA -- How do we know our skies are being sprayed? Because we have film footage of the crime, of jets spraying at altitude. This is the logical end of any argument or dispute on this issue. Climate engineering is not speculation, it is not theory, it is a verified fact confirmed by film footage. Those that deny what they can see with their own eyes are simply not ready to wake up. A film of the crime occurring (in this case atmospheric spraying of aerosols from jet aircraft) cannot be rationally disputed.

U.S.A. -- The surveillance society is a secretive apparatus of intrusion and deception. An enigma within a disinformation perception of reality is at the core all activities of spooks. One of the most pervasive and all reaching agencies is the NSA. The National Security Agency officially is a cryptologic intelligence agency whose primary function is Signals Intelligence Directorate (SID), which produces foreign signals intelligence information, and the Information Assurance Directorate (IAD), which protects U.S. information systems. The General Accounting Office defines the nature of the structure of the NSA.

WORLD -- When it comes to the secretive meetings of the worlds financial, corporate, political and technocratic elites at the annual Bilderberg conferences, a common criticism from conspiracy theorists and others is that the group pre-selects major politicians choosing presidents and prime ministers in private before populations have a chance to vote themselves. Bilderberg participants contest this framing, suggesting that Bilderberg participants simply invite up-and-coming politicians who appear to have a bright future ahead of them.

U.S.A. -- The Government Accountability Office has come out with a new report that exposes the lack of accountability for use of federal funds at fusion centers. But it doesnt address the most serious issue with fusion centers: that theyre yet another weapon in the governments bloated surveillance arsenaland theres virtually no oversight for what theyre doing and how they may be violating peoples rights. The sheer numbers (800,000-plus officers) of local law enforcement working in the U.S. is staggering and enlisting them in the surveillance state exponentially multiplies the potential for privacy and civil liberties violations.

WASH D.C. -- Senate leaders failed to get the 60 votes needed to advance The USA Freedom Act - which would have limited the NSAs bulk collection of phone records - and as Bloomberg reports, it's unlikely a new version can be drafted for another vote before the congressional term expires this year. The 58-42 vote to move the measure forward came mostly along party lines as Senator Saxby Chambliss - the top Republican on the intelligence committee - rambling that the bill "eliminates tools critical to the intelligence communitys ability to prevent terrorist attacks, and its adoption would greatly degrade our ability to fight domestic terrorism in particular."

WASH D.C. -- The State Department has taken the unprecedented step of shutting down its entire unclassified email system as technicians repair possible damage from a suspected hacker attack. A senior department official said Sunday that "activity of concern" was detected in the system around the same time as a previously reported incident that targeted the White House computer network.

WASH D.C. -- The foundation of America's nuclear arsenal is fractured, and the govt has no clear plan to repair it. The cracks appear not just in the military forces equipped with nuclear weapons but also in the civilian bureaucracy that controls them, justifies their cost, plans their future and is responsible for explaining a defense policy that says nuclear weapons are at once essential and excessive. It's not clear that the govt recognizes the full scope of the problem, which has wormed its way to the core of the nuclear weapons business without disturbing bureaucracies fixated on defending their own turf.

MASSACHUETTS -- The odds are you can't make out the PIN of that guy with the sun glaring obliquely off his iPad's screen across the coffee shop. But if he's wearing Google Glass or a smartwatch, he probably can see yours. Researchers at the University of Massachusetts Lowell found they could use video from wearables like Google Glass and the Samsung smartwatch to surreptitiously pick up four-digit PIN codes typed onto an iPad from almost 10 feet away—and from nearly 150 feet with a high-def camcorder.

GEORGIA -- A man driving on a freeway coming out of Alabama in southern Georgia took this video of at least two flat-back trucks, each carrying two brand-new white armored cars bearing the letters "UN" in black. One sharp-eyed reader on YouTube observed that the vehicles "appear to have M231 port firing weapon ports on them." The United States is a sovereign country, not under the UN's jurisdiction. There can be NO legitimate reason why armored trucks of the United Nations should be on American soil, unless the UN vehicles had been manufactured here and are being transported by truck to a port for shipping overseas.

SOUTH AFRICA -- Crowds of protesters could soon come under attack from riot control drones outfitted with paintball guns, strobe lights, and speakers. The Skunk Riot Control Copter, built by South African company Desert Wolf, has a suite of cameras and four paintball guns strapped to its chassis to help its operators monitor and control unruly crowds. The guns can fire ammunition from four different hoppers, meaning the drone operators can shoot protesters with dye markers, solid plastic pellets, or small capsules of pepper spray.

(Jun 09 2014) - New Details on the 1961 Goldsboro Nuclear Accident
WASH D.C. -- A recently declassified report by Sandia National Laboratory, published today by the National Security Archive, provides new details on the 1961 Goldsboro, North Carolina, nuclear weapons accident. While both multi-megaton Mk 39 bombs involved in the mishap were in the "safe" position, the report concluded, by the time one of them hit the ground it was in the "armed" setting because of the impact of the crash. If the shock had not also damaged the switch contacts, the weapon could have detonated. Since the advent of the nuclear age, the nightmarish possibility of an accidental detonation has made weapons safety a boiler-plate item in the U.S. nuclear weapons program - yet potentially serious errors continue to occur.

FRANCE -- Beijing will be sending police into France to "protect its tourists" traveling there. Such a thing is unconventional to say the least. While most countries respect the sanctity of a sovereign nation, its military and police, Beijing apparently does not. This move signals the increasingly aggressive Chinese stance on protecting its interests abroad. In light of this move, is it too much to ask if Beijing will be the next country to "pull a Crimea" and use force to protect Chinese citizens in other countries as well?

CHINA -- It's fair to say China isn't a fan of Windows 8. A few weeks ago, the tiled OS was banned from Chinese government computers, as part of a notice on the use of energy-saving products (if this sounds a bit vague, that's because the reason given is). Then, if that wasn't bad enough news for Microsoft, a state-backed news report broadcast on China's CCTV has really put the boot in, branding the operating system a threat to China's cybersecurity, and suggesting it is being used to spy on Chinese citizens.

S.E. ASIA -- Cultivation of opium in Southeast Asia's notorious Golden Triangle region has doubled in the past decade, according to an in-depth study that rebuffs claims by governments that an aggressive anti-narcotics policy is reaping benefits and improving livelihoods.

WASH D.C. (AP) -- An Air Force security team's botched response to a simulated assault on a nuclear missile silo has prompted a blistering review followed by expanded training to deal with the nightmare scenario of a real attack. The Air Force recognized the possibility of such an intrusion as more worrisome after the 9/11 terrorist attacks. But an internal review of the exercise held last summer at Malmstrom Air Force Base in Montana said the security forces were unable to speedily regain control of the captured silo, and called this a "critical deficiency."

Peter Vincent Pry, executive director of the Task Force on National and Homeland Security and director of the U.S. Nuclear Strategy Forum, both congressional advisory boards, said the technology to avoid disaster from electromagnetic pulses exists, and upgrading the nation's electrical grid is financially viable. "The problem is not the technology," Pry said. "We know how to protect against it. It's not the money, it doesn't cost that much. The problem is the politics. It always seems to be the politics that gets in the way."

I reviewed the book recently for Physics Today. You can read my PT review here, but the long and short of it is that I was really, really impressed with the book. And I'm not easily impressed by most works of nuclear weapons history, popular or academic. I'm not surprised it was a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize, either.

The origin of the term "Janet" (Just Another Non-Existent Terminal) is obscure but it is used as a radio callsign. Due to the secretive nature of the airline, little is known about its organization.

(Apr 07 2014) - EARTH'S SECRET SPACE FLEET
U.S.A. -- Since approximately 1980, a secret international space fleet code named 'Solar Warden' has been in operation. When Gary McKinnon hacked into U.S. Space Command computers several years ago and learned of the existence of "non-terrestrial officers" and "fleet-to-fleet transfers" and a secret program called 'Solar Warden', he was charged by the Bush Justice Department with having committed "the biggest military computer hack of all time", and stood to face prison time of up to 70 years after extradition from UK. But trying earnest McKinnon in open court would involve his testifying to the above classified facts, and his attorney would be able to subpoena government officers to testify under oath about the Navy's Space Fleet. To date the extradition of McKinnon to the U.S. has gone nowhere. McKinnon also found out about the ships or craft within 'Solar Warden'.

PONTIAC -- Oakland County commissioners asked no questions last March before unanimously approving a cellphone tracking device so powerful it was used by the military to fight terrorists. Now, though, some privacy advocates question why one of the safest counties in Michigan needs the super-secretive Hailstorm device that is believed to be able to collect large amounts of cellphone data, including the locations of users, by masquerading as a cell tower.

U.S.A. -- The Homeland Security Department late Thursday announced future plans to overhaul an organization that defends DHS' own internal networks. A counter-hack mechanism called the intrusion defense chain, or "kill chain" -- developed by researchers at Lockheed Martin -- is expected to drive the revamp, according to DHS officials. The current DHS security operations center, or SOC, manages the department's wide area network, its data centers and agency-level local area networks.

U.S.A. -- Classified design drawings used in the manufacture of nuclear weapons have not been properly and reliably maintained by nuclear weapons labs managed by the National Nuclear Security Administration (NNSA), the Department of Energy Inspector General said in a report last week. "NNSA sites could not always locate as-built product definitions or associated drawings for nuclear weapons and components in official records repositories." At the Pantex Plant, "officials were concerned and surprised at the difficulty in finding as-built product definitions for the nuclear weapons," the DoE IG report said. At Los Alamos, the information system "allowed changes to classified nuclear weapons drawings without using an approved change notice."

WORLD -- "Connectivity," Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg said in a CNN interview last year, "is a human right." If it surprises you that one of the kings of the corporate Internet would repeat a slogan used by Internet activists to mobilize against companies like his, examine the context. Zuckerberg made his remark to support and explain a new set of Facebook strategies that will, if successful, put the world's Internet connectivity under his company's control. It's called internet.org which is not only a real website but a consortium of companies and government agencies Facebook is leading. The very name -- "internet.org" -- also provides a glimpse of Facebook's intentions.

EAST COAST -- The United States is on alert and has deployed military assets to defend the Atlantic coastline from New York to Charleston from attack by a cruise type missile or low flying aircraft. Heightened security measures began with Israel's increasing threats against Iran but increased with the mysterious disappearance of Malaysian Airlines flight 370. Sources at the highest levels of the US military and intelligence community cite the possibility of a terror bombing, even using nuclear weapons, most likely to be submarine launched. This is what is being defended against.

MONTANA -- Nine more mid-level nuclear commanders in the U.S. Air Force have been fired according to this newly released story from The Guardian. In moves that are said to be tied to a much wider exam-cheating scandal, is there much more to these moves than we are being told? With Barack Obama worrying about a nuclear device going off in Manhatten, is this more set up for a nuke false flag? The US air force fired nine mid-level nuclear commanders Thursday and will discipline dozens of junior officers at a nuclear missile base in response to an exam-cheating scandal that spanned a far longer period than originally reported.

(Mar 26 2014) - Is CIA fueling Drug Epidemic using cheap Heroin from Afghanistan?
AFGHANISTAN -- The tragic overdose death of Academy Award winning actor Philip Seymour Hoffman on Feb 2, brought renewed interest to the subject of cheap heroin on America's streets. One of the big questions asked by naive media talking heads is : Where's all of this heroin come from ? The answer is the same as it was a decade ago following a CIA - led invasion of Afghanistan: 75%-80% of the world's heroin is exported from Afghanistan. In spite of the fact that the U.S. military controls a great deal of that mountainous country, production levels hit record highs last year.

SPAIN -- Spain is first, followed by Germany, then France ... In terms of the overall business [not just trade] the absolute leader is Italy, but Spain moves more cocaine than any other country in Europe. These days, the big drug cartels do not use tax havens, or at least they use them less than before. Instead, they use European [and obviously American] banks. In the new book, I mention Antonio María Costa, the former Under-Secretary of the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime, who said at the beginning of the crisis that the European banking system had lowered its security barriers. In other words, they had opened the floodgates to drug money. Costa has publicly stated that the European financial systems were as good as saved by the global drug trade, yet no EU government has responded to his accusation.

MALAYSIA -- On March 13, 2011 Veterans Today said they could prove Malaysian Airlines Flight 370 was "on the ground." The mainstream media had sighted wreckage but families were calling passengers on the "downed jet" and those phones were ringing, an impossibility. We are now certain that we are dealing with a "black op" at the highest level. This fact alone surprises no one. The more important issue is the ramifications of accepting this inexorable fact.

WASH D.C. -- American officials have long considered Huawei, the Chinese telecommunications giant, a security threat, blocking it from business deals in the United States for fear that the company would create "back doors" in its equipment that could allow the Chinese military or Beijing-backed hackers to steal corporate and government secrets. But even as the United States made a public case about the dangers of buying from Huawei, classified documents show that the National Security Agency was creating its own back doors - directly into Huawei's networks.

The department was notified of this step last week at CIA headquarters in Langley, Va. after its members rose up in "open rebellion" against Banks, according to the Los Angeles Times. Given the high importance and sensitivity of this department, it was most likely Intelligence Director John Brennan in person who delivered the notice.

KYRGYZSTAN -- Kyrgyzstan, a landlocked and mountainous country in Central Asia, serves a powerful role in the Eurasian drug trade by playing the "mule" that carts heroin and other opiates between Afghanistan and Russia. Many researchers theorize that this lucrative industry has taken root in Kyrgyzstan - a country with few natural resources and industries - with significant support and leeway from its government, making it a "narco-state."

U.S. ARMY -- Irregular forces are armed individuals or groups who are not members of the regular armed forces, police, or other internal security forces (JP 3-24). The distinction of being armed as an individual or group can include a wide range of people who can be categorized correctly or incorrectly as irregular forces. Excluding members of regular armed forces, police, or internal security forces from being considered irregular forces may appear to add some clarity. However, such exclusion is inappropriate when a soldier of a regular armed force, policeman, or internal security force member is concurrently operating in support of insurgent, guerrilla, or criminal activities.

U.S.A. -- In some cases the NSA has masqueraded as a fake Facebook server, using the social media site as a launching pad to infect a target's computer and exfiltrate files from a hard drive. In others, it has sent out spam emails laced with the malware, which can be tailored to covertly record audio from a computer's microphone and take snapshots with its webcam. The hacking systems have also enabled the NSA to launch cyber attacks by corrupting and disrupting file downloads or denying access to websites.

WORLD -- In this day and age of well-known NSA spying, everyone keeps saying that the only way to be safe is to use SSL/TLS, commonly known as "browsing with https://". The sad reality is that HTTPS does virtually nothing to protect you from the prying eyes of alphabet soup agencies - or anybody else with enough knowledge about how these supposedly "secure" connections actually work. It's true that connecting to web sites with SSL will certainly prevent "script kiddies" and other more winky opponents from eavesdropping on your surfing or otherwise interfering in your affairs.

WASH D.C. -- While at times, it's appeared that the Senate Intelligence Committee, led by Dianne Feinstein, serves more to prop up the intelligence community than to handle oversight, it has actually clashed quite a bit with the CIA. We've discussed a few times how the Committee has been pushing to release a supposedly devastating 6,000 page report about the CIA's torture program, which cost taxpayers an equally astounding $40 million to produce. However, the CIA has been fighting hard to block the release of the report, arguing that it misrepresents the CIA's actions. However, things are getting even more bizarre, as the NY Times is reporting that the CIA is now accused of spying on the Intelligence Committee and its staffers in its attempt to keep that report from being released.

Guzman's Sinaloa drug cartel - the largest in Mexico and the world - has a leadership succession plan that most likely has placed Ismael "El Mayo" Zambada at its helm.

U.S.A. -- The National Security Agency is using complex analysis of electronic surveillance, rather than human intelligence, as the primary method to locate targets for lethal drone strikes - an unreliable tactic that results in the deaths of innocent or unidentified people. According to a former drone operator for the military's Joint Special Operations Command (JSOC) who also worked with the NSA, the agency often identifies targets based on controversial metadata analysis and cell-phone tracking technologies.

But in hindsight it makes a certain sense. The Whittington's have long been among So. Florida's most storied 'pirates.' And the Ft.

(Jan 31 2014) - Sakharov's turning point : The first Soviet H-bomb test
U.S.S.R. -- The Soviets set off their first megaton-range hydrogen bomb in November 1955. It was the culmination of many years of effort, in trying to figure out how to use the power of nuclear fission to release the power of nuclear fusion in ways that could be scaled up arbitrarily.1 The Soviet bomb was designed to be a 3-megaton warhead, but they set it off at half strength to avoid too much difficulty and fallout contamination. Unlike the US, the Soviets tested their version version by dropping it out of a bomber - it was not a big, bulky, prototype like the Ivy Mike device. But it was not an uneventful test.

WASH D.C. -- Saudi Arabia has long been a backroom player in the Middle East's nuclear game of thrones, apparently content to bankroll the ambitions of Pakistan and Iraq (under Saddam Hussein) to counter the rise of its mortal enemy, Iran. But as the West and Iran have moved closer to a nuclear accommodation, signs are emerging that the monarchy is ready to give the world a peek at a new missile strike force of its own - which has been upgraded with Washington's careful connivance.

SOUTH CAROLINA -- Unwarranted NSA surveillance, the passage of NDAA, stop and frisk programs, and the rise of warrior cops, have essentially turned America into a centralized police state.

VATICAN -- Last week Pope Francis replaced four out of the top five officers overseeing the Vatican Bank in a move that sent shock-waves through the public leadership of many countries. In probably most countries of the world, when a new leader is installed, that person gets a visit from a cabal officer like Henry Kissinger who hands them a Vatican bank account book containing a huge bribe, according to sources including former CIA chiefs. The leaders are then told that if they do not accept the money and follow cabal orders they will be assassinated, driven out by scandal, or failing that, have their country invaded by US troops. For that reason, the change at the top of the Vatican bank is a sure sign something big is coming down.

They began implementing "working groups", which to this day are now up to 21, including areas of military cooperation, military technical cooperation, arms control, international security, emergency situations, and the rule of law (the rule of law?).

U.S. & U.K. -- Norway's largest newspaper (Aftenposten) reports today that British spies pressured the developers of cellphone standards in the 1980s to intentionally weaken the cellphone's encryption. In other words, hackers can break into cellphone calls much more easily because the British spied intentionally made the encryption 1,000 times weaker than it otherwise would have been. This isn't the only example of Western spy agencies destroying security. The NSA paid leading encryption company RSA $10 million to weaken its encryption algorithm. Many other encryption companies have probably also accepted a deal with the devil.

U.A.E. -- The United Arab Emirates, which signed a $926 million contract last year with two French firms to buy two intelligence satellites, said this week that the deal would be cancelled unless the firms (Airbus Defense & Space and Thales Alenia) removed US-built components. The UAE's fear was that the equipment would contain back doors that would allow data sent to ground stations to be intercepted. Facing a major customer defection, will the French firms -- or, for that matter, anyone else trying to land a foreign contract -- continue to work with American component builders? Mounting evidence suggests otherwise.

AMERICA -- What is most striking about the American police state is not the mega-corporations running amok in the halls of Congress, the militarized police crashing through doors and shooting unarmed citizens, or the invasive surveillance regime which has come to dominate every aspect of our lives. No, what has been most disconcerting about the emergence of the American police state is the extent to which the citizenry appears content to passively wait for someone else to solve our nation's many problems. Unless Americans are prepared to engage in militant nonviolent resistance in the spirit of Martin Luther King Jr. and Gandhi, true reform, if any, will be a long time coming.
