This sounds like a peaceful way to do things

Whether this comes to be sarcasm or not… really depends on what happens in the next 10-15 years.

Well, with or without fatalities in this case.

Ganbatte, Catherine Engelbrecht. We will need more Malcom Xs for backup, however.

Intel on the Enemy: Federal Security and Surveillance

February 4, 2014

Last summer, Reuters revealed how the NSA and other surveillance organizations would share info with the DEA and other law enforcement agencies, but then tell them to reconstruct the evidence via a process called “parallel construction,” so that the surveillance would not then be discussed in court. This is highly questionable, and probably illegal, as a defendant has the right to know all of the evidence being used against him or her, and should also be told how that evidence was gathered, to make sure the collection was legal. But what’s being done with parallel construction, is that the intelligence community is able to give “hints” to law enforcement, allowing them to come up with various pretenses for an investigation, avoiding ever having to reveal that the NSA or others used potentially illegal surveillance efforts. One example given in that Reuters report was how DEA agents would suddenly be given a tip like this: “Be at a certain truck stop at a certain time and look for a certain vehicle.” The DEA would then have the local police come up with some pretense to stop the truck… and then when evidence is found they can claim it was a random traffic stop, when the reality is anything but that.

After the Reuters report, C.J. Ciaramella used Muckrock to request all DEA training material and official policies concerning “parallel construction” and recently received nearly 300 pages of documents, much of it redacted, but still which reveals that this is common practice at the DEA and widely known.

I’ve heard similar stories, except it’s about SWAT teams mistakenly or intentionally doing no knock raids on people the police suspected owned “lots of guns”. The LEO community already has access to this kind of stuff. They just need a REASON or a pretext to use it against you. Risk assessment and avoidance protocols dictate that strategic planning must be done now for avoidance, and not rely merely upon tactical superiority when you get caught with your pants down.

And try not to go to gov websites, especially if they want to solicit a comment from you about the IRS vs Tea Party.

It’s not necessarily that they have access to your identity, it’s all the hackers that they don’t control that have hacked them and can access your IP, address, etc using the federal government’s own tools. Risk is more than about paranoid conspiracies, mostly because paranoid conspiracies underestimate the scale of the threat.

Zero Security for A lot of Liberty

November 19, 2010

Since I think there’s zero security gain from TSA’s policies, past and present, it’s kind of obvious what I think of the worth of full body scans.

Good stories from SSG Dave here on the matter. As well as Spartacus here.

Interesting look at Russian Systema, their own brand of military H2H.

Run From the Planation

July 26, 2010

This is a great companion piece to the finding out who’s a Nazi.

The black community votes by an overwhelming 90% and plus for the Democrat regime of plantations, urban fiefdoms, and absolute servitude to the white Democrat elite rich: dead Kennedy, dead Byrd, alive Soros, semi alive Kerry.

The situation is similar to what faced the Marines and the US in Iraq, where a local population thinks Saddam or their tribal traditions was their future and that meant fighting Americans. General Petraeus’ forces were tasked to convincing them otherwise, even if it killed them. And people in America didn’t like Iraqis being liberated from their own ideology which enslaved them to tyranny. Reminded those Americans here at home of what could be done here. They had too many black slaves to think “liberation” was a good thing.

Critical Assessment of Afghanistan Progress

June 27, 2010

This was made by General McChrystal before he resigned his post.

The reality, according to a senior military source, is that General McChrystal’s candour about the reality of the situation was an obstacle to Mr Obama’s search for an “early, face-saving exit” to help his chances in the 2012 presidential elections. “Stan argued for time, and would not compromise. Rolling Stone provided an excuse for Obama to fire the opposition to his plan without having to win an intellectual argument,” he said.

General McChrystal knew “his time was up” and had been told by White House aides his “time-frame was all wrong”, with the general thinking in years while the President was thinking more in months, he added.

Supporting any of Obama’s decisions is starting to look like a sucker’s bet.

Michael Yon’s Crack Addicted Monkey

June 22, 2010

Okay, people should know by now that there’s a certain popular issue on Yon. Not just over the horizon but actually here or even behind us.

So in the interest of finding out the truth, we have an audio recording of Michael Yon on the G Gordon Liddy show with James Hanson, Jimbo at Blackfive 5.

If you believe yourself a great analyzer of voice tones and judgment based upon that, you can certainly try your hand at an assessment.

Origins of Target Focus Training

May 15, 2010

An audio podcast will give you more of the story on this issue. It is an interesting tale of Tim Larkin and others. It also provides some light on why people go into Martial Arts, why they sometimes become disillusioned, and why skill does not equal Alpha Leadership.
