Congress Welcomes Drones Into American Skies ASAP

Michael Edwards

The stage has already been set and played upon for divisions of Unmanned Aerial Vehicles to patrol and strike undeclared war zones abroad.

Even though lip service has been paid to express minor outrage over villages bombed in Pakistan, Yemen, Somalia, or someplace "over there," there has been relatively little true outrage by countries heretofore unaffected by computer bombing raids upon their own Homeland -- countries like America.

Well, seeing is believing they say.

Americans are next in line to get their chance to see firsthand what has been happening overseas -- a close-up view of what takes place on computer screens in Tel Aviv or Las Vegas.

The Boomerang Effect has taken flight.

The treason of American Congress seems to know no bounds, as it has submitted an urgent official request to the Secretary of Transportation to invite potential remote-controlled war upon American soil by integrating Unmanned Aerial Systems into civilian airspace to be overseen by the FAA. (Source)

The drone program inside the United States has advanced at warp speed since 2007 when tests were first captured by the media.  Since that time, we have witnessed local police departments such as Miami-Dade County, FL outfit their force with micro-drones.  However, it wasn't until the first drone test-run for law enforcement was conducted in North Dakota, that even staunch naysayers to claims of militarization had to pay closer attention.  Drones for cattle rustling?  WTF?

Now, just a couple of months later, we can read the "Conference Report on FAA Reauthorization and Reform Act of 2012," which does nothing less than give approval to turn American skies into a virtual battlefield that threatens to mirror the declaration of the NDAA that America (indeed the entire planet) should be outfitted with the tactics and technology of the War on Terror.

An open fly zone for drones has been declared, with Department of Defense authorization to maximize capabilities.

The report's opening paragraph ends with ominous foreshadowing after stating the normal bureaucratic political lingo about an effort to "streamline programs" and "create efficiencies."
Mr. Mica submitted the following conference report and statement on the bill (H.R. 658) to amend title 49, United States Code, to authorize appropriations for the Federal Aviation Administration for fiscal years 2011 through 2014, to streamline programs, create efficiencies, reduce waste, and improve aviation safety and capacity, to provide stable funding for the national aviation system, and for other purposes:
"And for other purposes..."

Please read the proposal in full, as it is nothing less than the openly stated plan for a future of total full-time surveillance, an increased number of testing sites similar to the "secret" facility recently uncovered in Nevada, and most likely brings with it a threat of future bombing raids in America and surrounding territories.

I saw one over Louisville KY. yesterday! Sat in the sky for hours! Right in the path where UPS Jumbo jets fly every night! Went into Southern Indiana! The outcome of this is going to be tragic! Politicians, Fox news, Msnbc, need to be removed of they`re dictatorship now! The main stream Jewish media mafia is bending the American people over and using crunchy peanut butter and convincing them its KY jelly!

Sitting high above a targeted location in the sky can remove psychological barriers to destroying it. It becomes merely a "location" without character, history or life of any real value; a place where to 'blow the shit up' without any immediately drawn consequences is just an order followed, a mission completed in the mind of the person pushing the button. Directing a drone distances the chasm between the brain and the finger on the button even further from the awareness that something of value may be destroyed, whether a legitimate target or a mistake. It is only a raster on a video screen showing some action, as in a video game. Guilt or reflection is not deemed as necessary.

On the PBS documentary "CARRIER", depicting life for the officers and personnel of an Navy aircraft carrier in the Persian Gulf, one scene showed some the the fighter jet pilots sitting around discussing their roles on standby. Without quoting them precisely, they were very proud of being who they were, as they would be; some were cocky, almost as if they'd walked right out of a scene from the ridiculous movie "Top Gun", and one woman. Some of the quieter ones were more reflective about their objectives and the woman in the group, while joining in on their conversations, seemed to be absorbing what was said and held most things in confidence while the 'talkers' talked; (and with some speculation here), seemed apprehensive listening to some of the more showy "Top Gun" types complaining of boredom, that they didn't have enough missions to fly and there wasn't enough action from above. Watching the dialogue between them was very interesting and revealing of a disconnect between having the power to destroy from above and taking responsibility for it.

I'm at a point where I'm sick of the chemtrails, indefinite detention bill, TSA and all the other accroutements of the War on Terror. It has now become the War of Terror. I'm so fed up with it that I'm getting to where I don't care much if they kill me with a drone, life is becoming worse every day here in the U.S. We have no rights left and I can't help but wonder where the endpoint of all this will end up and what it will be.

The next war will be high tech. They don't need as many ground forces anymore. They will be replaced with special forces. World War 111 will be fought over oil. The elite have a hidden agenda: 1-Population Reduction 2-Control over the resourses. People are being born every second. At the rate resourse consumption the world cannot support over 7 billion people. Not as much labor is needed anymore with industrial robots relacing humans. The elite's plan is to reduce the population by 90%.

I met Ralph Epperson in the late 80's who wrote the book The Unseen Hand and he said that the plan to dismantle America was to bankrupt it. So I knew what was coming !!

I don't know how aware people are but there are states that are letting Washington know that
they are not going to allow the NDAA to be activated in their state. These states have stated that they will not put their own citizens in indefinite detention without counsel. Also there are several states (not to mention foreign countries) that have recently introduced legislation to ban Monsanto, hence it is time to call your Congressmen, Senators and the President and tell them you do not support the destruction of your free country! Specifically tell them that you will not support any actions to enforce the NDAA,TSA, Obamacare, as well as the act to take our vitamins away and the act to allow GMO food to be planted and sold without labeling. While you're on the phone be sure you also tell your state reps that you do not support military troops on US soil and do not support drones in our skies. We are being heard but we need to keep calling and calling and calling, and let the state and federal government know that We Do Not Consent to these illegal laws and actions on the part of the US government!! I truly see a time coming where, if we don't stand up for ourselves in every state in this union that there are going to be states that are going to leave the Union, these are the states with the people standing up for themselves to their state officials who are now telling Washington NO Way. In order to preserve our Free Country and our amazing Union let your voice be heard today!

I have friends in the Civil Air Patrol; they use drones for search and rescue. If you were a lost hiker or a survivor of a plane crash, I bet you'd be pretty HAPPY to see a drone; or if your rescue were delayed because some trigger-happy paranoid loon had shot down the drone looking for you, I bet you'd be pretty mad!
