Taking a look at the annual homeland security/war on terror trade show & pre-crime enforcement exhibition.

 

“Super Bowl security plan now in effect”

Life wasn’t meant to change after the Osama bin Laden take down-

“The NFL’s existence as a billion-dollar industry leads some to question whether the federal government should fund portions of security for the Super Bowl.”

 

“New Oreleans prime target for terrorists”

And-

“…no specific or credible reporting on any threats at this time.”

 

“At the Superdome, more than 1,300 federal agents are in town to help assist local law enforcement officers, setting up security buffers of about 300 feet around the stadium.”

1,300 federal agents.

 

What prevents terror strikes at hundreds of public events & locations unsupervised by federal authorities?

Looking back at Super Bowl security-

2012-

“The federal government’s ring of security includes 35 agencies and extends from the airport to Lucas Oil Stadium, the secretary said.

Air marshals, canines sniffing for explosives, and inspectors scouring delivery trucks at the stadium are part of the security force, she said.”

35 federal agencies?

It doesn’t matter what the situation is each year- The Super Bowl is the site of something like a Homeland Security Industrial Complex trade show for DHS employees, contractors, surveillance gear manufacturers, SWAT teams, etc.

Newspeople play the role of federal public affairs personnel.

1:41 “Soldiers in the lobby”

 

Everyone is in on the act.

 

Note that CBP has its own news agency to promote operations. Who needs a free and independent press anyway?

Athletes on hand to endorse the plan. (13:20)

 

Ask yourself- how can speedboats and helicopters prevent terrorism?

 

What stops terrorists from going 2 states over and driving a truck across the playground at a daycare center?

A SWAT team?

Helicopters?

Speedboats?

Super Bowl security?

If all the bank robbers in North America decided to become terrorists instead- how would the Dept. of Homeland Security stop them?

Buzz around in gunboats and helicopters?

Check ID cards?

NORAD/US Air Force radar?

Scramble fighter jets?

Inspect cargo shipments at US port cities?

Internal Suspicionless checkpoints and roadblocks?

 

Show of hands- how many smaller government folks are OK with having the Department of Homeland Security around to act as a federal reserve force for local law enforcement agencies or the entertainment industry?

“Nothing in the Constitution gives the federal government authority over ordinary crimes. In America, crime fighting is the responsibility of state and local government. But despite the lack of constitutional authorization, federal policymakers continually try to involve themselves in crime fighting.”

 

Domed stadium means no Soviet-style military flyover-

Super Bowl flyover costs taxpayers $450,000

 

Look for half-time announcers to aknowledge the troops-

“…they are over there protecting our rights and freedoms here at home.”
