HAARP To Be ‘Transferred To Civilian Control’; Will Still Receive Pentagon Funding

Controversial military site will continue to be used for experiments
HAARP To Be 'Transferred To Civilian Control'; Will Still Receive Pentagon Funding

by Steve Watson | InfoWars | July 14, 2015


The High Frequency Active Auroral Research Program, also known as HAARP is to be transferred from military operation to “civillian control”, as the site is handed over to the University of Alaska, which will continue to use the mysterious facility for experiments.

“The Air Force Research Lab has control of the HAARP facility until Aug. 11,” Marmian Grimes, a university of Alaska spokesperson, wrote in an email to The Intercept.

“After that, the university will have access to the site under the terms of an agreement between [University of Alaska Fairbanks] and the Air Force. That agreement allows access for two years, which will provide the university and the Air Force time to negotiate an agreement regarding the transfer of the land.”

HAARP was officially constructed with the stated goal of studying the ionosphere. It is made up of a huge array of radio transmitters and antennas, which generate radio waves to heat up portions of the ionosphere, the region of Earth’s upper atmosphere, from about 60 km (37 mi) to 1,000 km (620 mi) altitude, which is ionized by solar radiation.

The heat accelerates electrons, creating conditions for military scientists to conduct experiments.

The facility has long been the subject of intense scrutiny among those who believe the Pentagon constructed and used it to conduct research into everything from weather and natural phenomenon manipulation weapons to more esoteric studies, such as electronic and psychotronic mind control.

As the Intercept report notes, the Pentagon ploughed millions into the facility, mostly via congressional add-ons, and was still doing so as recently as 2007, when HAARP was officially completed.

It consequently seemed dubious to many that just seven years later an announcement came that the Air Force was set to close the site and dismantle the array.

Now it has been revealed that HAARP will live on. The Intercept notes:

“Physicist Dennis Papadopoulos, a professor at the University of Maryland and longtime proponent of HAARP, said the agreement that was worked out would transfer the facility from the Defense Department to the state of Alaska, and then over to the University of Alaska, which has long been involved in research at the site.”

HAARP will then operate, like other ionosphere research sites, as a scientific facility supported by those conducting experiments there. Papadopoulos said that the state of Alaska will put in about $2 million, and some additional funding may come from the National Science Foundation and the Pentagon.

So the facility will likely STILL be funded by the government, and experiments will continue to be conducted there.

This inevitably means that the theories over what HAARP is really used for will not go away, and researchers will continue to be fascinated with the mysterious facility.

TERROR PANIC: Rep. Says NYC Officials Expecting DIRTY BOMB Attack on July 4th

Pentagon Issues alert; ISIS posts map of FBI Command Centers

by Steve Watson | InfoWars | July 2, 2015


New York Congressman Peter King was spreading more of his brand of fear on Fox News last night, telling viewers that officials in New York are worried that there is going to be a dirty bomb attack this weekend.

Speaking to Megyn Kelly regarding the heightened chatter of a possible terrorist attack during 4th of July celebrations, King took things to a whole new level.

Saying he’s never seen this level of concern, King stated “You wouldn’t see the… nuclear explosion detection devices being used the way they are… if this were just a routine warning.”

“Did you just say nuclear?” Kelly responded.

“Yes, that’s a big concern here in New York.” King replied, adding “Nuclear explosives, the dirty bomb. That’s why so much money has been put in to explosive detection devices.”

King, Chairman of the Sub-Committee on Counterterrorism, loves to perpetuate the idea that there are terrorists around every corner in US cities trying to set off nuclear bombs. He is obsessed with stripping away freedoms and rights in favour of more aggressive surveillance and tighter controls in the face of the threat of terrorism.

King has routinely called for the NSA to strengthen and increase its mass surveillance programs.

He has previously referred to NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden as a “terrorist appeaser”, and a traitor, and has called for the extradition and prosecution of Snowden, as well as journalists reporting on the issue of NSA surveillance.

King is an expert in terrorism, having supported the IRA in the 1980s, despite bombings that had killed British soldiers and scores of innocent people, as well as targeting British politicians, including the Prime Minister.

On the heels of official alerts from the FBI, the DHS, as well as former CIA officials over July 4th, the Pentagon has also issued an alert, noting that it is maintaining a “higher alert status” due to potential threats from the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria.

“The call went for increased attacks during Ramadan, which is why you see us maintaining a higher alert status,” Army Gen. Martin Dempsey, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, told reporters Wednesday.

In addition, fears have been heightened by reports that the FBI is setting up command centers around the country to prepare for terror attacks on the Fourth of July holiday weekend.

ISIS has responded by widely posting a map showing the locations of the temporary command posts.

FBI employees have reportedly had all vacations cancelled over the weekend, and have been warning friends and relatives of a coming attack.

US Now Claims Assad Working with ISIS

US changes narrative after Pentagon report proves ISIS to be Western-backed
US Now Claims Assad Working with ISIS

by Mikael Thalen | Infowars.com | June 3, 2015


Officials representing the U.S. Embassy Syria Twitter account accused the Syrian government of aiding ISIS in the takeover of Aleppo this week, a major shift in narrative following the publication of declassified Pentagon documents showing clear Western support for jihadist elements in the country.

According to embassy representatives, Syrian President Bashar al-Assad has not only avoided engaging ISIS targets, but has actively attempted to “bolster their position.”

“Coalition partners noted the continued deterioration of the situation in Syria and the inability/unwillingness of the Assad regime to fight ISIL,” the group said.

The embassy asserts that coalition members are currently looking into how the Syrian government has aided the jihadist’s expansion in the region, an absurd claim given undeniable evidence pointing to the West’s direct involvement in the terror group’s growth.

Late last month secret Pentagon documents obtained by conservative watchdog Judicial Watch proved that the United States and its allies purposely aided al-Qaeda and other jihadists in an attempt to topple the Syrian government.

First covered by Nafeez Ahmed of INSURGE Intelligence, the documents even state that the Pentagon knew its policy of arming jihadists would likely lead to the rise of ISIS and the destabilization of Iraq.

“Despite anticipating that Western, Gulf state and Turkish support for the ‘Syrian opposition’ — which included al-Qaeda in Iraq — could lead to the emergence of an ‘Islamic State’ in Iraq and Syria (ISIS), the document provides no indication of any decision to reverse the policy of support to the Syrian rebels,” Ahmed wrote.

Since the beginning of Syria’s so-called “civil war,” the Obama administration has funded and armed radical islamists under the guise of supporting “moderate rebels.”

President Obama’s support of jihadists was so transparent from early on that he even went as far as to waive a provision of federal law designed to prevent the supply of arms to terrorist groups in 2013.

Last February President Obama moved forward again in his support by handing the Free Syrian Army (FSA), the main “moderate rebel” group, the ability to order US airstrikes on targets in the country.

Despite the President’s claims, the FSA has long admitted to supporting al-Qaeda and ISIS in the overthrow of Syria.

“We are collaborating with the Islamic State and the Nusra Front by attacking the Syrian Army’s gatherings in… Qalamoun,” Bassel Idriss, commander of an FSA-run rebel brigade, told the Daily Star last Septmber. “Let’s face it: The Nusra Front is the biggest power present right now in Qalamoun and we as FSA would collaborate on any mission they launch as long as it coincides with our values.”

According to one jihadist speaking with Al-Jazeera in 2013, FSA fighters regularly sell their weapons to ISIS once receiving shipments from the U.S. as well.

“We are buying weapons from the FSA,” Abu Atheer said. “We bought 200 anti-aircraft missiles and Koncourse anti tank weapons. We have good relations with our brothers in the FSA.”

Abu Mohammad al-Golani, the leader of one of the largest rebel groups, also openly pledged allegiance to al-Qaeda-linked groups in 2013.

The notion that moderate rebels were a major factor in the country was all but erased in late 2014 when ISIS agreed to sign a non-aggression pact with multiple groups including the FSA.

In reality, the West’s Middle East policy was admitted by retired four-star General Wesley Clark more than 8 years ago when he revealed that the overthrow of Syria had been planned in the wake of 9/11.

According to Clark, the 2001 Pentagon plan included the overthrow of 7 different countries including Iraq, Libya, Syria.


Using the “Arab Spring” as cover, the United States has since been successful in flooding many of the listed countries with jihadist proxy armies disguised as “protesters” and “freedom fighters.”

The fact that the United States now blames Assad for the rise of radical elements in Syria signals the West’s overall desperation in finalizing its destabilization campaign.

Master the Human Domain: The Domestic Plan Behind Jade Helm

Pentagon goal of information domination hidden in plain sight

by Infowars.com | May 9, 2015


A closer look at the upcoming Jade Helm military exercise, specifically its “master the human domain” motto, reveals a larger agenda in regards to domestic policy.

In current military terminology, the “human domain” or “human domain analytics” refers to the “global understanding of anything associated with people.”

Breaking down into four specific categories, mastery of the human domain results from obtaining total information awareness on a mass scale.

Who You Are – Collected information includes names, addresses, biometrics, social media accounts .

What You Do – Travel history, communications, financial transactions and movement of physical assets.

Who You Know – Relational information including family, friends, associates and organizations.

Context – Contextual data such as demographics, politics, cultural norms and religion.

jade-helm12

“The importance of understanding the Human Domain has increased significantly over the past decade and a half,” writes the US Geospatial Intelligence Foundation. “There has been a shift from concentration on Nation-States, to smaller organizations, to individuals.”

The USGIF also refers to Human Domain Analytics as “arrows in a quiver,” hence the prominent arrows on the Jade Helm logo.

“ABI and Human Domain Analytics are not the answer to every intelligence problem; they are merely new arrows in a quiver of capabilities.”

With modern technological advancements allowing anyone “with a video camera and a laptop computer” to have “worldwide impact,” the federal government has not only hyper-incentivized the collection of data, but the merging of all relevant agencies.

“They’re building an infrastructure of tyranny,” stated Infowars David Knight. “There’s a legal infrastructure with things like the NDAA, there’s a technical infrastructure with things like the capability to do dragnet surveillance, and then of course there is going to be a military and law enforcement infrastructure, and those are merging.”

In fact, James Clapper, the current director of national intelligence, has been a frequent keynote speaker at GEOINT conferences. Before famously lying to Congress on the existence of domestic NSA surveillance, Clapper was even the director of national geospatial intelligence agency.

“Activity Based Surveillance, built on a strong foundation of Human Dimension analysis, will form the intellectual underpinning of how we perform intelligence in the future,” Clapper said in 2009.

As noted on the Alex Jones Show Friday, a 2010 conference on mastering the human domain featuring high level military and intelligence officials openly discussed gathering publicly available data to create detailed maps with layered information.

“We start out with a layered group level analysis… We focus it on groups, ethnicities, religious groups and we start to map out and color code the different locations.” said Lt. Col. Al Di Leonardo. “We start to characterize the location in a color coding simple way… and then we start layering that on top of the tribal aspects and we start to see very distinct patterns…”

Stacking Leonardo’s statement up against the Jade Helm map reveals the event to be much more than a basic training drill.

maps1

“If you understand the technologies, you will see that Jade Helm is more an intelligence operation using Geospatial Intelligence mapping than a simple military exercise,” adds David Knight.

Leonardo’s speech goes on to note that the military would next focus in on “key leaders” and other members of the community, a move already being carried out by Jade Helm operatives in Texas and other participating states.

“From the very beginning this has been the NSA, the U.S. Geological Service, law enforcement, military, working to put together all this information…” David Knight said.

As information from low level surveillance technologies such as Stingrays and predictive policing programs gets siphoned up to NSA data centers, a detailed global map will continue to grow with near-endless stats on all individuals.

The military leadership’s deception regarding the exercise was on display this week when Americans confronted Col. John Petkosek on C-SPAN and demanded answers on Jade Helm. Despite the topic making international news, Petkosek alleged that he was completely unaware of the massive multi-state drill.

As Infowars has argued for weeks, Jade Helm will not result in martial law, but will move Americans one step closer to the larger agenda of total domination by the surveillance state and military industrial complex.

Pentagon raises threat level at US military bases

Pentagon raises threat level at US military bases

by The Hill | Kristina Wong | May 9, 2015


The Pentagon on Friday raised protection levels for military bases around the country, officials announced Friday.

The decision was taken in response to an overall “heightened threat environment,” which included a recent shooting in Texas thought by some to have been connected to the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS) — which claimed responsibility for the attack — at an event where contestants drew the Islamic Prophet Muhammad, Pentagon spokesman Army Col. Steve Warren said.

Warren said the move was not taken in response to any specific threat, but the “decision to do this now is informed by a generally heightened threat level.”

“We’ve seen what happened in Texas, we’ve seen other social media and internet-based discussions and threats, and so we have detected a general increase in the overall environment that’s caused us to want to do this,” he said. “There is no known threat to any specific place.”

What does “Master the Human Domain” on the Jade Helm 15 logo mean?

“Human Domain,” like “unconventional warfare” are terms of art for military and law enforcement. Painting Texas & Utah red and labeling them “hostile” is just the tip of the intel iceberg that seeks to overlay a human geological map onto a physical geological map to track individuals.

Rob Dew and David Knight take a look at this obscure part of the military/police industrial complex and how it relates to Jade Helm.

Obama Set to Begin Training Jihadists in Syria

Government claims it is training “vetted moderates” to fight ISIS

by Kurt Nimmo | Infowars.com | May 7, 2015


The Pentagon is ready to train “moderate Syrian rebels,” CNN reports.


Intel boss Clapper: “We do not have census bureau door-to-door survey fidelity on these groups.”

The first of 400 U.S. military trainers have in Turkey and Jordan to train rebels who “have passed the initial security screening” on small arms, radios, medical gear and battlefield tactics.

In fact, “moderate” rebels are virtually nonexistent in Syria and have been for some time.

“The Free Syrian Army and the Syrian National Council, the vaunted bulwarks of the moderate opposition, only really exist in hotel lobbies and the minds of Western diplomats,” writes Ben Reynolds.

“On the ground, Jabhat al-Nusra, the Islamic Front, and other rebel groups have joined together in fighting against the regime, the Kurds, and ISIS.”

In fact, before Reynolds wrote the above last October, Jabhat al-Nusra had reportedly pledged allegiance to ISIS in at Albu Kamal in Syria and al-Qaim in Iraq.

Moreover, an earlier CIA program to arm groups opposed to the government of Bashar al-Assad in Syria in effect armed al-Nusra and other jihadist groups.

“The Obama administration approved a CIA-led program in the spring of 2013 that delivered support to those then considered moderate rebels, all of whom fought under the umbrella known as the Free Syrian Army, the main opposition group fighting Assad after the Syrian Civil War began in 2011. The CIA program allowed for the transfer of U.S.-made weapons via Turkey, and it was partially funded by Saudi Arabia and other wealthy Sunni states. But the rebel groups that were the beneficiaries of that aid began to dissolve when better-financed and -organized militias, such as the Islamic State group and the Nusra Front, emerged,” International Business Times reported last month.

The U.S. is well aware it is training and arming jihadist groups in Syria, including ISIS. (The latter group was trained in Jordan by the U.S. military.)

“There is no doubt that the Obama administration knows this. Classified U.S. intelligence is simply better than publicly available sources, particularly in the case of an important conflict like Syria,” Reynolds continues. “It defies common sense that the administration would somehow be unaware that the ‘moderate opposition’ exists in name only. Contrary to popular belief, the United States does not stumble blindly and hopelessly through the Middle East. It stands to reason that there is an important motive behind choosing to back the non-ISIS Syrian opposition, rather than tacitly supporting the Assad regime, to counter ISIS.”

As Tony Cartalucci notes, “there never were any ‘moderates,’ and… the United States and its allies, precisely as renowned journalist Seymour Hersh warned in 2007, went about raising a regional army of sectarian terrorists to fight an unprecedented proxy war with the predictable outcome being an orgy of genocide and atrocities.”

“ISIS is the purposeful creation of the United States in its pursuit of regional hegemony in the Middle East, and ISIS’ atrocities were predicted long before the first shots were fired in 2011 in the Syrian conflict, long before the term ‘Islamic State’ went mainstream.”

The latest propaganda effort by the Pentagon designed to give the impression the U.S. is arming and training “vetted moderates” to fight ISIS is simply cover for the real purpose of a new influx or arms and trainers in the Middle East: to hasten the overthrow of al-Assad and convert Syria into the next failed state on par with Libya where ISIS has taken up residence.

Libya and Iraq are examples of the paradigm in mind for the Arab and Muslim Middle East — a series of failed states riven by sectarian conflict and violence. The ultimate goal by the global elite is to realize order through chaos and as the arch globalist Zbigniew Brzezinski said, “prevent collusion and maintain security dependence among the vassals.”

America’s Main Problem: Corruption

The Cop Is On the Take
America’s Main Problem: Corruption

by Washington’s Blog | May 7, 2015


Preface: Sadly, in the month since we last posted on this topic, many new examples of corruption have arisen.

Government corruption has become rampant:

  • Senior SEC employees spent up to 8 hours a day surfing porn sites instead of cracking down on financial crimes
  • NSA spies pass around homemade sexual videos and pictures they’ve collected from spying on the American people
  • Investigators from the Treasury’s Office of the Inspector General found that some of the regulator’s employees surfed erotic websites, hired prostitutes and accepted gifts from bank executives … instead of actually working to help the economy
  • The Minerals Management Service – the regulator charged with overseeing BP and other oil companies to ensure that oil spills don’t occur – was riddled with “a culture of substance abuse and promiscuity”, which included “sex with industry contacts
  • Agents for the Drug Enforcement Agency had dozens of sex parties with prostitutes hired by the drug cartels they were supposed to stop (they also received money, gifts and weapons from drug cartel members)
  • The former chief accountant for the SEC says that Bernanke and Paulson broke the law and should be prosecuted
  • The government knew about mortgage fraud a long time ago. For example, the FBI warned of an “epidemic” of mortgage fraud in 2004. However, the FBI, DOJ and other government agencies then stood down and did nothing. See this and this. For example, the Federal Reserve turned its cheek and allowed massive fraud, and the SEC has repeatedly ignored accounting fraud. Indeed, Alan Greenspan took the position that fraud could never happen
  • Paulson and Bernanke falsely stated that the big banks receiving Tarp money were healthy, when they were not. The Treasury Secretary also falsely told Congress that the bailouts would be used to dispose of toxic assets … but then used the money for something else entirely
  • Warmongerers in the U.S. government knowingly and intentionally lied us into a war of aggression in Iraq. The former head of the Joint Chiefs of Staff – the highest ranking military officer in the United States – said that the Iraq war was “based on a series of lies”. The same is true in Libya and other wars
  • In an effort to protect Bank of America from the threatened Wikileaks expose of wrongdoing – theDepartment of Justice told Bank of America to a hire a specific hardball-playing law firm to assemble a team to take down WikiLeaks (and see this)
  • The Bush White House worked hard to smear CIA officers, bloggers and anyone else who criticized the Iraq war

The biggest companies own the D.C. politicians. Indeed, the head of the economics department at George Mason University has pointed out that it is unfair to call politicians “prostitutes”. They are in factpimps … selling out the American people for a price.

Government regulators have become so corrupted and “captured” by those they regulate that Americansknow that the cop is on the take. Institutional corruption is killing people’s trust in our government and our institutions.

Indeed, America is no longer a democracy or republic … it’s officially an oligarchy.

The allowance of unlimited campaign spending allows the oligarchs to purchase politicians more directly than ever. Moreover, there are two systems of justice in Americaone for the big banks and other fatcats, and one for everyone else.

Big Corporations Are Also Thoroughly Corrupt

But the private sector is no better … for example, the big banks have literally turned into criminal syndicates.

Wall Street and giant corporations are literally manipulating every single market.

And the big corporations are cutting corners to make an extra penny … wrecking havoc with their carelessness. For example:

We’ve Forgotten the Lessons of History

The real problem is that we need to learn a little history:

  • We’ve known for thousands of years that – when criminals are not punished – crime spreads
  • We’ve known for centuries that powerful people – unless held to account – will get together and steal from everyone else

Beyond Partisan Politics

Liberals and conservatives tend to blame our country’s problems on different factors … but they are all connected.

The real problem is the malignant, symbiotic relationship between big corporations and big government.

Iran seizes U.S. ship, 34 sailors

Iran has fired at a U.S. cargo ship and has directed it to Bandar Abbas port on the southern coast of Iran, Al Arabiya News Channel has reported on Tuesday.

Up to 34 American sailors are believed to be onboard the ship, Al Arabiya reported.

US denies Iran ship seizure report

The incident happened in the Straits of Hormuz, according to the Pentagon (file image of Iranian warship)

American officials have denied media reports that a US cargo ship had been seized by the Iranian navy.

The Saudi-owned Al-Arabiya TV network had reported that a US vessel had been seized and taken to an Iranian port.

However, the Pentagon spokesman said the vessel involved was flagged to the Marshall Islands and that no Americans were on board.

The MV Maersk Tigris was moving through the Straits of Hormuz, according to the Pentagon.
