2014: The American Public Supports Torture … Because They Don’t Know THIS

New polls show that – even after the Senate torture report showed that torture is unnecessary and doesn’t work – Americans still think torture is necessary and works. Why? Because they still don’t know the truth … because the mainstream media has hidden it from them. Specifically, Americans still believe that torture works to produce helpful intelligence that helps keep us safe. Americans wouldn’t support torture if they knew the following facts, proven beyond any doubt: All of the top interrogation experts say that torture does NOT produce actionable intelligence … even in a “ticking time bomb” scenario Torture doesn’t reduce terrorism. In fact, the opposite is true:  it simply creates new terrorists and terrorist groups, including ISIS Most of those tortured were completely innocent of any crime. Children were tortured, too The specific type of torture used by the U.S. is famous for producing FALSE evidence People have […] Read More

2013: Meet the MADSS: Northrop Grumman’s machine gun robot

The MADSS is one mean robot. Developed by defense industry leader Northrop Grumman and currently being showcased at the Fort Benning, Ga. “Robotics Rodeo,” the MADSS is a 1 1/2-ton unmanned ground vehicle designed to provide soldiers with covering fire while cutting down targets. Make no mistake, it’s an automatic shooting machine, But it requires people to operate it and set targets. The MADSS — Mobile Armed Dismount Support System — tracks and fires on targets only once it gets the green light. It won’t shoot unless a soldier is directing it. It’s half killer robot, half killer giant remote-control car. While its top speed hasn’t been stated, Northrop Grumman has said that it can follow troops on foot at about five miles an hour over rough terrain that conventional combat vehicles would find impassable. The MADSS is somewhat modular and can be fit with a wide array of weaponry from M240s and M249s to Mk […] Read More

2013: Four-legged, DARPA-funded, running war robot unveiled (VIDEO)

Screenshot from youtube video by BostonDynamics Developers at Boston Dynamics, an engineering company specializing in robotics, have released video of an untethered robot capable of standing and mobilizing on its own. WildCat is a four-legged outdoor runner capable of rising, turning, and reaching running speeds up to 16 mph on flat ground. WildCat is a close cousin to Boston Dynamics’ Cheetah, another quadrupedal robot that was unveiled a year ago, running at speeds over 28 mph on a treadmill – quicker than world’s fastest man Usain Bolt’s top speed of 27.78 mph. However, unlike WildCat, Cheetah was connected to a power source. The runner carries a large – and very loud – motor to operate its four limbs, though the weight hampers its speed and agility. Boston Dynamics has not detailed what is next for WildCat, but it is known to have been developed for military use, as the […] Read More

2013: Pentagon spent $5.5bn only hours before govt shutdown

Reuters / Jo Yong-Hak As clocks at the Pentagon approached midnight late Monday evening and inched America towards a government shutdown, the United States Department of Defense spent $5.5 billion dollars on an arsenal of items ordered at the last minute by Uncle Sam. Foreign Policy reported on Tuesday that the Defense Department awarded 94 contracts totaling over $5.5 billion a day earlier, ensuring the mightiest military on Earth would stay significantly well-stocked throughout an indefinite shutdown that has sent hundreds of thousands of federal workers home without pay and polarized lawmakers in Washington. Comparatively, Foreign Policy’s John Reed noted that on September 3 — the first workday of the month — the Pentagon published news of only 14 contracts: practically one-seventh of what was signed off on as Monday’s midnight deadline seemed increasingly more likely to come and go without a compromise. The shutdown, now in its third […] Read More

TOP SECRET: U.S MILITARY DOCUMENT DECLARES EXISTENCE OF DOMESTIC INSURGENCY

“TOP SECRET” U.S MILITARY DOCUMENT DECLARES EXISTENCE OF “DOMESTIC INSURGENCY” INSIDE UNITED STATES PLAN OUTLINES GOVERNMENT INTENT TO USE MILITARY FORCE AGAINST U.S. CITIZENS OVER POLITICAL ISSUES! DESCRIBES USING PSYCHOLOGICAL OPERATIONS, OUTRIGHT MILITARY FORCE AND MEDIA PROPAGANDA AGAINST U.S. CITIZENS *By: Hal Turner* North Bergen, NJ — As a radio talk show host, I receive a whole slew of e-mail and regular mail about virtually every issue under the sun. Much of it gets deleted or thrown away. Some of it results in stories appearing on my web site or being discussed on my show. Every once in awhile, something akin to a bombshell arrives and yesterday, July 18, 2007 was one such day. I came into possession of portions of a U.S. military plan which was allegedly classified “Top Secret.” This put me in a bind because without having a security clearance myself, having something which is Classified […] Read More

2007: PENTAGON INSIDER HAS DIRE WARNING

PENTAGON INSIDER HAS DIRE WARNING http://www.americanfreepress.net/html/pentagon_insider.html Daniel Ellsberg, the former Defense Department analyst who leaked the secret Pentagon Papers history of the Vietnam War, offered insights into the looming attack on Iran and the loss of liberty in the United States at a recent American University symposium. What follow are his comments from that speech. They have been edited only for space. By Daniel Ellsberg Let me simplify . . . and not just to be rhetorical: A coup has occurred. I woke up the other day realizing, coming out of sleep, that a coup has occurred. It’s not just a question that a coup lies ahead with the next 9-11. That’s the next coup that completes the first. The last five years have seen a steady assault on every fundamental of our Constitution . . . what the rest of the world looked at for the last 200 […] Read More

2006: Military Commissions Act: A Precursor To Tyranny?

By Chuck Baldwin   Food For Thought From The Chuck Wagon December 5, 2006 In an interview with nationally syndicated radio talk show host Alex Jones, Rep. Ron Paul of Texas recently discussed President Bush’s support for the Military Commissions Act. During the interview, Paul said that “the law officially allows for citizen concentration camp facilities.” Paul also warned that “the Military Commissions Act and the Defense Authorization Act . . . essentially wipes out Habeas Corpus.” Paul continued by noting, “Right now we don’t have concentration camps, but . . . the authority has been given so that concentration camps can come without Habeas Corpus.” He then said, “If they can lock you up, what good is freedom of speech or what good is a gun?” Couple the implementation of the Military Commissions Act with the already-passed USA Patriot Act and all the legalities necessary to completely eviscerate […] Read More

2004: America’s Empire of Bases

By Chalmers Johnson 01/15/04: (tomdispatch.com) As distinct from other peoples, most Americans do not recognize — or do not want to recognize — that the United States dominates the world through its military power. Due to government secrecy, our citizens are often ignorant of the fact that our garrisons encircle the planet. This vast network of American bases on every continent except Antarctica actually constitutes a new form of empire — an empire of bases with its own geography not likely to be taught in any high school geography class. Without grasping the dimensions of this globe-girdling Baseworld, one can’t begin to understand the size and nature of our imperial aspirations or the degree to which a new kind of militarism is undermining our constitutional order. Our military deploys well over half a million soldiers, spies, technicians, teachers, dependents, and civilian contractors in other nations. To dominate the oceans […] Read More
