Obama Wines and Dines Some of the World’s Most Brutal Dictators at the First Ever U.S.-Africa Summit

Screen Shot 2014-08-07 at 4.15.32 PMLast month, I wrote an article highlighting the fact that President Barack Obama apparently had become so tired of being President that he decided to just hang out and socialize instead. The piece was titled, The New York Times Describes Obama – “A Restless President Weary of the Obligations of the White House…” 

Apparently, Mr. Obama has found a middle ground. A perfect mix of dinner-party diplomacy with some of the world’s most violent and homophobic dictators. Introducing the first ever U.S.-Africa summit, which just ran from August 4-6th. As the Daily Mail points out, President Obama had no problem smiling and hobnobbing with a cornucopia of murders and human rights abusers. If there was a Hollywood celebrity hashtag campaign of outrage protesting the event, I must have missed it.

Micro-Drones Have Landed: “Unobtrusive, Pervasive, Lethal”

As if we didn’t already have our hands full dealing with their larger cousins, the United States Air Force now informs us of their latest killing machine…micro-drones.  Specifically called “Micro Air Vehicles” or MAVs, these little robots can fly like birds, crawl like spiders and kill like snipers.  It’s just another extremely disturbing development that we all need to keep a close eye on.  Thank you General Dynamics for the latest “freedom birds.”  From the UK’s Daily Mail:

The U.S. Air Force is developing tiny unmanned drones that will fly in swarms, hover like bees, crawl like spiders and even sneak up on unsuspecting targets and execute them with lethal precision.

The Air Vehicles Directorate, a research arm of the Air Force, has released a computer-animated video outlining the the future capabilities of Micro Air Vehicles (MAVs). The project promises to revolutionize war by down-sizing the combatants.

‘Unobtrusive, pervasive, lethal – Micro Air Vehicles, enhancing the capabilities of the future war fighter.’

As the drones fall, they begin to fly – not like planes, but like insects. High frequency flapping wings allow the drones to hover and maneuver in tight spaces.

Now check out the video…

TRAPWIRE: Leaked Stratfor Emails Indicate Sophisticated Surveillance Grid May Exist

TrapWire is the other really interesting story out there at the moment that is not being covered at all in the United States mainstream media, which at this point has become a gigantic joke and national embarrassment (only 21% of Americans trust TV news according to a recent gallup poll).

So what do we know about TrapWire at the moment?  Unfortunately, the answer is not that much, but we definitely know enough to be very concerned and our media outlets should be spending a lot of time on this subject rather than the petty topics on which they spend the majority of their wasted existence.

From what is out so far we know that TrapWire is a sophisticated surveillance system that consists of at least: CCTV cameras, license plate readers and open source date bases offered to major corporations and governments around the world.  The Sydney Morning Herald informs us that:

The emails and other documentation revealed TrapWire is installed in some of the western world’s most sensitive locations – including the White House, 10 Downing Street, New Scotland Yard, the London Stock Exchange and five hundred locations in the New York subway system. Trapwire is also installed in many Las Vegas casinos.

Ok, so most people will read that and think; so what?  These places need protection, why not have the best?

There are three things that really make my skin crawl when it comes to TrapWire.  First, the people behind the project have CIA backgrounds.  Also from the SMH we find that:

The founder of TrapWire is 30-year Central Intelligence Agency veteran Richard Hollis Helms. Several of TrapWire’s top managers are also former CIA officers. It is part of security company Abraxas Corporation, which reportedly holds sensitive and lucrative contracts involving activities such as creating fake identities for CIA officers.

Second, Wikileaks recently released emails from geopolitical intelligence firm Stratfor, in which analysts and senior members of the firm discuss TrapWire.  Coincident with this release, Wikileaks was subject to monstrous DDOS attacks that have kept the site more or less down for over a week.  This has made combing through the TrapWire emails very difficult.  So we know that very powerful players at very powerful institutions DO NOT want this info getting out to the public.

Third, while TrapWire will be sold to the American sheeple as a way to “stop terrorists,” in an internal Stratfor email we see that:

Regarding SF landmarks of interest–they need something like Trapwire more for threats from activists than from terror threats. Both are useful, but the activists are ever present around here.

So there you have it folks.  There is a large surveillance grid being put into place and guess what?  Activists are the terrorists…and not a peep from the U.S. mainstream media. Welcome to America in 1984.

Here are various articles on it.
