Drone nearly hits Coast Guard helicopter over Port Angeles


Peninsula Daily News March 25th 2018:

Coast Guard aircrew member hurt in laser strike

“The Coast Guard has reported laser strikes in Port Angeles on April 20, 2015; Nov. 30, 2015; and Sept. 26, 2016; as well as on April 20 2016 near the Squalicum Harbor area of Bellingham where a Port Angeles helicopter crew and a Bellingham boat crew were training.”

The post-911 surveillance state (fusion centers, war on terror crime fighting tactics, license plate scanners, Homeland Security grant money, enhanced background checks, monitoring of e-mails, text messages, and social media sites, no fly/terror watch lists, Real ID, tracking of cell phones, use of drones, etc.) appears to have played no role in preventing the crimes described above.

On occasion, authorities will announce that no credible threat exists related to some event or location:

FBI: No threat to Houston after recent U.S. incidents

‘No known credible threats ’ ahead of Super Bowl, officials say

Baker: No threat to Massachusetts following NYC bike path rampage

Day after Las Vegas shooting: Homeland Security: No ‘specific credible threat’ to other public venues in US after Las Vegas shooting

If the good guys can tell what the bad guys will do before they do it- surely, these powerful crime fighting tools will be used to shut down gang and cartel activity, heroin trafficking, bank robberies, mass casualty shootings, etc.


The US Dept. of Homeland Security “stops an average of 7 known or suspected terrorists a day – 50 a week- trying to come to our country.”

With such an impressive handle on US Dept. of Homeland Security performance- why do Heroin-Trafficking Cartels continue to move product into local communities?
