Micro-Drones Combined With DNA Hacking Could Create A Very Scary Future

by Robert Johnson, BusinessInsider:


Sightings of insect-sized micro drones have been occurring for years, but combined with the direction of genome sequencing outlined in this Atlantic piece — the pair make for a futuristic and potentially deadly mix.


Even back in 2007, when Vanessa Alarcon was a college student attending an anti-war protest in Washington, D.C. she heard someone shout, “Oh my God, look at those.”

“I look up and I’m like, ‘What the hell is that?’” she told The Washington Post. “They looked like dragonflies or little helicopters. But I mean, those are not insects,” she continued.

A lawyer there at the time confirmed they looked like dragonflies, but that they “definitely weren’t insects”.

Washington Times Breaks U.S. Media Blackout On Bilderberg

Washington Post fails to mention the fact that dozens of hugely influential power brokers are meeting in their own back yard

The U.S. media blackout on Bilderberg has been broken, with the Washington Times being the first mainstream U.S. news outlet to cover the gathering of over 100 power brokers in Chantilly, Virginia which kicks off today – but the Washington Post remains mute.

The Times reports that a half-mile security perimeter has been set up around the Westfields Marriott hotel and that a photographer for the newspaper was told by police, “any attempt to get close to the building would result in arrest.”

It’s all part of the unprecedented security crackdown now in force to protect global financiers, banking heads, media and technology moguls as well as elected officials from the very public whose lives are affected by their decisions.

“This year, it’s the biggest ever. The security is leveraged up big time. It’s unprecedented,” Alex Jones told the newspaper.

Despite the fact that dozens of the most powerful and influential people on the planet are meeting today in their own back yard, the Washington Post, which itself is routinely represented at Bilderberg via its publisher Donald Graham, has failed to even mention the event thus far.

Expect the Post to only report on the conference once it’s wrapped up. Bilderberg relies on big media to ignore their meetings so as not to draw more press attention while the summit is in progress.

In a separate story, numerous prominent Canadian newspapers, including the Calgary Herald, are reporting on criticism leveled against Alberta Premier Alison Redford’s following her announcement that she will attend the meeting at a cost of $19,000 to taxpayers.

As we reported yesterday, Redford, a prominent global warming alarmist, will scheme with Bilderbergers on the best way to implement Agenda 21 using the threat of ecological crises.

Wildrose Leader Danielle Smith, who was previously characterized as a national embarrassment by Redford for daring to question the official mantra behind climate change, savaged Redford for not paying for the trip herself.

“That’s $19,000 on the taxpayer dime for a committee that meets in secret, has no policies, no resolutions, nobody is allowed — it’s invite only,” Smith said. “What is Alberta getting out of this?

“I think in fact she’s actually thinking more about her career after politics and she’s using it as a networking event. Well, fair enough, then she can pay for it herself. We don’t think Albertans should be on the hook for this tab.”

Redford has promised to report back on what she discussed at Bilderberg, but don’t expect her to go into much detail because attendees are sworn to secrecy – another example of Bilderberg’s contempt for the democratic process.

Britain’s Daily Mail newspaper also carries a story today which largely regurgitates Infowars’ original piece about the stifling security measures now being put in place.

Digital Journal also has a piece looking at the likely topics of discussion at this year’s confab.

Stay tuned to today for all the breaking news on Bilderberg as attendees begin to arrive.

Sources Inside Bilderberg Spill Cabal’s Secret Plans

Location and details of “Palm Tree Conference” confirmed

Sunday, May 13, 2012

Alex Jones has developed two sources within the Bilderberg Group who have confirmed that the secretive cabal is meeting at the Westfields Marriott Washington Dulles hotel in Chantilly, Virginia from May 31st to June 3rd, with further revelations about Bilderberg’s 2012 agenda to follow.

Jones said he was “contacted by somebody inside Bilderberg” two years ago and that he also developed another source intimately connected to the organization within the last week.

The code name for the 2012 Bilderberg meeting is the “Palm Tree Conference,” the source revealed to Jones. Over the last two days, Bilderberg members have been responding to their invitations and confirming their attendance at the 2012 confab, which will definitely take place at the Westfields Marriott. When calling the hotel, invitees use the code words “Palm Tree Conference” to signal their attendance and book their room. The hotel is closed to all other guests during the Bilderberg Group meeting and has no rooms available on its website for the duration of the confab.

Sources from inside Bilderberg routinely leak the group’s agenda and discussion topics to veteran American Free Press Bilderberg sleuth Jim Tucker. With Jones having developed even more sources inside the group, expect Infowars to obtain an even greater depth of understanding about how the secretive cabal plans to steer the globe over the next 12 months.

Alex Jones reiterates his call for demonstrators to descend on Chantilly to peacefully protest the group’s meeting at the end of the month. As we previously documented, the ‘Occupy Bilderberg’ movement is gaining steam, with a Facebook Group, a website and a deluge of activists committed to exposing the group’s power and demanding adequate mainstream media coverage of Bilderberg 2012.

Jones emphasizes that the protests should be vocal but peaceful, pointing out that the police presence at the meeting will be low key because Bilderberg does not want to draw attention to itself.

We urge as many people as possible to travel to Virginia at the end of the month to do what the mainstream media habitually fails to accomplish – speaking truth to power and demanding answers as to why Bilderberg attendees think they can break their own country’s laws, such as the Logan Act in America and its equivalents elsewhere, by meeting secretly with foreign agents while serving in public office.

As we have exhaustively documented (see here), there are numerous examples to illustrate the fact that Bilderberg is not merely a “talking shop” as some in the corporate press frame it, but a venue where consensus is formed for the implementation of both national and geopolitical policies with no regard whatsoever for the democratic will of the people.

The latest example was a Washington Post admission that the Bilderberg Group grooms vice-presidential candidates before they are selected.

If enough people show up to protest Bilderberg, it will force the U.S. media to cover the story and in turn create what Bilderberg fears the most – public exposure.

Demonstration times and meeting points will be clearly listed on this website well in advance of the beginning of the protest. The primary demonstration, during which Alex Jones will bullhorn Bilderberg, will take place at 6pm on Saturday June 2nd.

Facebook Now Administering Organ Donor Status for its Members

Facebook has added a unique feature to its social network: you can now tell the world — or just your family members — that you’re an organ donor.

The company announced the initiative on Tuesday, encouraging its 900 million users to let others know if they are organ donors.

… In that interview, Zuckerberg said that his relationship with Apple’s late co-founder Steve Jobs inspired him to use the social network for spreading awareness. Jobs underwent a liver transplant while being treated for pancreatic cancer. Zuckerberg’s girlfriend, who is in medical school to be a pediatrician, also encouraged him to add the tool.

In its FAQ section about the project, Facebook said: “More than 114,000 people in the United States, and millions more around the globe, are waiting for the heart, kidney or liver transplant that will save their lives. Many of those people – an average of 18 people per day – will die waiting, because there simply aren’t enough organ donors to meet the need. Medical experts believe that broader awareness about organ donation could go a long way toward solving this crisis.”

Combining FBI Terrorist suspicious activity guidelines with NDAA
April 22, 2012

What do you get when you combine the FBI Terrorist Screening Center’s suspicious activity reporting guidelines with the NDAA? This report looks into the ways our government can now deem virtually anyone a terrorist for almost any reason and how detrimental much of the new legislation in this area is to American citizens and our Constitution. It would appear the real threat to our freedom is not terrorism, but the war our government is waging on it   Could You Be a Terrorist?

$5 Trillion Tax Hike Coming

Bob Adelman
April 9, 2012

Back in February when the Congress voted to extend the payroll tax “holiday” to the end of the year, the Washington Post was the first to notice the tsunami of tax increases coming next year. But then Lori Montgomery began to add up all the other taxes that will increase on January 1, 2013, and called it “Taxmageddon.”

Here is a partial list of taxes that will increase unless Congress intervenes:

The 2001 and 2003 Bush “tax cuts” expire
Taxes on investment income
Estate and gift taxes
Income taxes
Marriage penalty returns
Child credit drops
Taxes on first $8700 of wages increase by 50 percent
Payroll taxes go from 4.2 percent back to 6.2 percent

Australia open to U.S. spy flights from Indian Ocean island

CANBERRA | Tue Mar 27, 2012 10:09pm EDT

(Reuters) – Australia could one day allow U.S. spy flights to operate from a remote Indian Ocean island, Defense Minister Stephen Smith confirmed on Wednesday, supporting the U.S. pivot to Asia but likely upsetting Australia’s biggest trading partner, China.

Smith said the possible use of Australia’s remote Cocos Islands territory had been raised with the United States, but the proposal was not under active consideration and was not among current plans for Canberra to strengthen military ties with Washington.

“We view Cocos as being potentially a long term strategic location. But that is down the track,” Smith told reporters on Wednesday.

The Washington Post said the Pentagon was interested in using Cocos Islands, a series of atolls about 3,000 km (1,800 miles) west of Australia and south of Indonesia, as a new base for surveillance aircraft and allowing spy flights over the South China Sea.

China, the Philippines, Malaysia, Brunei, Vietnam and Taiwan all claim territory in the South China Sea.

Cocos Islands could be an alternative to a U.S. base on the British territory of Diego Garcia in the Indian Ocean, which faces an uncertain future beyond its current lease which expires in 2016, the Washington Post said.

Australia is a firm U.S. ally but counts China as its biggest trading partner and is careful not to antagonize it.

In November, U.S. President Barack Obama outlined his pivot to Asia and agreement with Canberra for a de-facto base for 2,500 marines near the northern city of Darwin.

Australia and the U.S. also agreed to allow greater U.S. air force access to northern Australian bases, and to give the U.S. navy greater access to the Indian Ocean naval base in Perth.

Smith said Australia had been open with China about its plans, and its posture review which is likely to recommend more military assets move to the country’s north to protect resource projects.


The Washington Post, quoting U.S. and Australian officials, said the Cocos Islands, within flying range of both Southeast Asia and South Asia, could be ideal for not only manned U.S. surveillance aircraft but for Global Hawks, an unarmed, high-altitude surveillance drone.

The U.S. Navy is developing a newer version of the Global Hawk, known as the Broad Area Maritime Surveillance drone, or BAMS, that is scheduled to become operational in 2015.

Smith played down chances of a U.S. base on Cocos Islands, and said while Australia hosted joint facilities and visiting U.S. forces, it had never allow the United States to operate an independent base in Australia.

He said Cocos Island was not one of the government’s priorities with its stronger military cooperation with the United States.

“We regard an enhanced presence by the U.S. in the Asia Pacific region as a force for peace, as a force for stability and a force for prosperity,” he said.

Strategic analyst Hugh White, head of defense and strategic studies at the Australian National University, said Australia risked being caught up in a dispute between its strongest military ally and its biggest trading partner.

“All of this relates to the U.S. pivot to Asia. The U.S. pivot to Asia is all about the rise of China,” White told Australian radio, adding it would be a mistake if Australia joined any U.S. push to try to contain China.

“It means that Australia is for the first time really since the end of the Vietnam war, starting to be seen by the United States as a strategic asset in its strategic competition with China.

“That is, of course, a bit worrying for Australia, because China is our biggest trading partner. Our future is going to be one where we are increasingly pulled between our old ally and in the United States and our economic future in Asia.”
