A deluge of drones fly over Super Bowl stadium, despite ban

“If these drones go out of control — if a pilot loses control of one — they can go into a crowd and cause serious injuries,” Rowson said.

“The potential for terrorism is also a concern.”

“When we look up into the air and see a drone flying in the air, we have no idea if it’s friendly, or if it’s someone who has nefarious plans and it’s weaponized,” he added.

Notice to terrorists:

“Officers on Thursday confiscated a half-dozen drones that were flown near the stadium, FBI spokesman Kevin Rowson said Friday at the agency’s Atlanta field office. The cases will be referred to federal prosecutors for possible charges; the drone pilots could face jail time and fines, Rowson said.”

Listen Up terrorists:

A drone impact with a fixed-wing aircraft or a helicopter would be catastrophic,” FBI Special Agent John Cronier said.

“…policing illegal drones is pulling officers away from other duties…”

“It has taken up a lot of time for our agents and for law enforcement officers to be targeting these drones when they could be working on other security measures…”

Drones have caused past disruptions:

“In December, hundreds of flights were canceled and more than 100,000 people were stranded or delayed after drones were spotted near the runway at Gatwick Airport outside London.”

“Last month, Southwest Airlines and United Airlines pilots encountered a drone around 3,500 feet (1,000 meters) above Teterboro, New Jersey. That resulted in dozens of delays at nearby Newark Liberty International Airport.”

Operation Macho Swagger & Port Angeles Heroin

2011-

Newspeople play the role of federal public affairs personnel during Operation Macho Swagger– a ride-along to let us know what is being done to keep the southern edge of the Strait of Juan de Fuca safe from B.C. incursions.

2013-

Heroin epidemic gripping Port Angeles

2015-

Port Angeles residents fed up with heroin problem

2017-

“Residents who filled the Port Angeles City Council chambers and lobby Tuesday night said they were fed up with the heroin epidemic in Clallam County and asked what is being done to stop opioid abuse and what they can do to help.”

2019-

Jail staff are now using medication to help addicts detox from heroin while in custody.”

Has Port Angeles CBP been able to intercept any inbound meth or heroin? Even one time?

Newspeople, reporters and journalists are free to ask basic public policy questions and post updated reports at any time.

Has anyone ever seen the press question the Port Angeles Border Patrol/CBP on their role in keeping heroin out of the Puget Sound area?

 

US Border Patrol, Port Angeles, WA

An upgrade in staff requiring a new, $11.9 million, 50 agent facility. Secret arrest statistics, denied FOIA requests, heroin in the community, no cross-border USBP arrest in more than 8 years, and zero questions from the press.

Are fraudulent overtime claims still the norm at Port Angeles?

If you run a government operation- these are the reporters you want to see on interview day:

June 17th, 2018 The San Diego Union-Tribune

Fentanyl has taken over America’s drug market. Where is it coming from?

China-

“The nature of fentanyl — extremely potent in small doses when pure — makes it ideal to move through the mail, keeping packages small and inconspicuous.”

“Experts say it’s hard to know just how much fentanyl is coming direct from China to the U.S.”

Mexico-

“Flowing in one direction, this fentanyl pipeline runs through Mexican cartel strongholds and heads north on well-established drug trafficking routes. It funnels 80 percent of the drug through the San Diego border before dispersing throughout the U.S.”

 

December 4th, 2018 Cato Institute

Today’s Drug Abusers Did Not Derive From Yesterday’s Patients

“I’ve encouraged using the term “Fentanyl Crisis” rather than “Opioid Crisis” to describe the situation, because it more accurately points to its cause—nonmedical users accessing drugs in the dangerous black market fueled by drug prohibition—hoping this will redirect attention and lead to reforms that are more likely to succeed.”

 

CBP is quick to boast about their role in keeping contraband out:

“…Clallam County’s opioid overdose death rate is nearly twice the state average…”

“While opioid use has no boundaries, limited public transportation, a lack of treatment facilities and long distances between health care providers can make it difficult for those who live in rural communities to access necessary drug treatment,” Kilmer wrote in his letter.”

Limited public transportation does not seem to slow down the folks who move heroin across US borders and into local communities.

Proud War on Terror- unable to keep heroin traffickers out of the US.

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.

Super Bowl security: Behind the scenes with the FBI

 

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.”

Insists on dividing people up into groups– then assigning a separate value to each group.

 

Cheers on military forces that are not in the habit of winning decades of undeclared wars in distant lands.

Credits The Troops with defending American rights and freedoms- as if the US Armed Forces function as some sort of giant civil rights organization.

 

Stopped supporting a draft a long time ago.

 

Spends money on gunboat escorts for ferries on Puget Sound while terrorists are free to put their boat on a trailer and drive it onto the ferry.

 

Spends months promoting the idea of buying stuff to celebrate Christmas.

 

Brags about freedom- then goes with a control freak approach on individual liberty.

 

Lies about the stories associated with federal holidays.

Celebrates independence from a powerful central government.

Tries to make people feel guilty for not properly observing some federal holidays.

 

Talks about legalizing marijuana while including restrictions that leave prohibition and the drug war in place for adults age 18-20, those who want to grow a plant at home, possess more than an ounce, or possess marijuana from non-state sanctioned outlets.

 

Talks about placing high taxes on legal marijuana.

Dealers, traffickers and cartels are good with this idea.

 

Supports a Homeland Security police state that can’t keep heroin and cocaine out of the US.

 

Tolerates reporters who do not ask questions.

 

Tolerates politicians who lie about clean energy.

 

Supports a Drug War that places us all at risk.

Super Bowl rolls out annual Homeland Security Police State control grid-

“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?

 

High level government employees are paid to market fear and safety all at once.

Reporters are paid to read scripts– not ask questions-

What prevents terror strikes at hundreds of events & locations unsupervised by federal authorities or sniper teams?

 

“US officials are particularly concerned that Iran is prepared to launch an attack…” (00:51)

A new phase of The Fake War on Terror is upon us- Iran might attack?

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

Reporters just go along with it- no questions asked.

Indy battens down hatches for Super Bowl security

 

Previous Super Bowl security efforts- (what it looks like when Iran is not prepared to attack)

If federal SWAT teams are required for Super Bowl security- what prevents terror strikes at hundreds of events unsupervised by federal authorities?

1:41 “Soldiers in the lobby”

Ask yourself- how can speedboats and helicopters prevent terrorism?

How about a SWAT team- how would they stop a terrorist?

What stops terrorists from going 2 states over and blowing up 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?
