Drones Over America

The Drones Are Here

The drones are here, and those drones are being deployed in the skies over America. In my last post I suggested that America is like a lobster in a pot of boiling water and every so often the cooks/crooks who run this country turn up the heat a few more degrees. That is certainly happening now.

Shortly before the end of 2011 the Senate passed the NDAA which Obama signed into law. The NDAA declared that America is a battlefield and every American citizen is a potential enemy combatant who can be detained indefinitely with no recourse to an attorney or a trial. Shortly after that lovely piece of legislation was passed Congress and Obama followed with an encore performance, passing and signing into law the FAA Reauthorization Act which calls for 30,000 drones in the skies over America by 2020. Then in March 2012 Obama signed an executive order giving him broad powers to declare martial law in peacetime and take over complete control of the country’s infrastructure: farms, water supplies, reservoirs, factories, power plants etc.

Does this sound like a democratic country to you where the Constitution and Bill of Rights are followed and enforced or does it remind you of something more sinister?

In any event, the flight of the drones has begun. The following information on the drone invasion comes from Simon Black of www.sovereignman.com:

  • 64 current drone bases are spread across the country, and are operated by various service branches: Army, Navy, Air Force and Special Operations Command
  • 12 current locations are housing Predator and Reaper UAS, which can be armed 
  • The scope of missions to be performed at these locations is not clear and remains classified 
  • California and Texas, the two most populous states, host the largest concentration of bases, 10 and 6, respectively. There are also 22 extra bases planned in these two states
  • A Pentagon report identifies 110 potential new sites; located in 39 states, as well as in Guam and Puerto Rico
  • The Department of Defense (DoD) and the military currently have 88 “active certificates of authorization” (COAs) at various locations around the country that permit them to fly UASs outside of restricted military zones

Most Americans are not aware this is happening. The mainstream media will most likely not report it and if they did how many people would really care?
