– Joe6 Pentagon hires British scientist to help build robot soldiers that ‘won’t commit war crimes’: Tim Shipman London Telegraph Monday, Dec 01, 2008 The American military is planning to build robot soldiers that will not be able to commit war crimes like their human comrades in arms….  By 2010 the US will have invested $4 billion in a research programme into “autonomous systems”, the military jargon for robots, on the basis that they would not succumb to fear or the desire for vengeance that afflicts frontline soldiers.

Washington Post: 20,000 More U.S. Troops To Be Deployed For “Domestic Security” huh?

During role playing exercises, actors playing prisoners would scream “I’m an American citizen, I have rights” as they were being dragged away by troops.The contention that the troops will merely help “recovery efforts” after a major catastrophe is contradicted by the fact that Northcom itself, in a September 8 Army Times article, said the first wave of the deployment, which was put in place on October 1st at Fort Stewart and at Peterson Air Force Base in Colorado Springs, would be aimed at tackling “civil unrest and crowd control”.After a controversy arose surrounding the admissions made in the Army Times article, Northcom retracted the claim but conceded that both lethal and non-lethal weaponry traditionally used in crowd control and riot situations would still be used in the field.(ARTICLE CONTINUES BELOW)The increasing militarization of America is part of a long term agenda to abolish Constitutional rule and establish a “military form of government,” following a large scale terror attack or similar disaster, as Tommy Franks, the former commander of the military’s Central Command, alluded to in a November 2003 Cigar Aficionado piece.Franks outlined the scenario by which martial law would be put in place, saying, “It means the potential of a weapon of mass destruction and a terrorist, massive, casualty-producing event somewhere in the Western world – it may be in the United States of America – that causes our population to question our own Constitution and to begin to militarize our country in order to avoid a repeat of another mass, casualty-producing event….  Should a real tragedy occur, volunteers and already existing civil aid organizations are fully capable of dealing with such events, as we witnessed on 9/11.The military are primarily trained to kill people and break things, and their role during the Hurricane Katrina relief efforts was mainly focused on detaining people in sports stadiums, shooting alleged looters and seizing guns from wealthy home owners in the high and dry areas, while real recovery measures were left to volunteers and local state authorities.The open admission that U.S. troops will be involved in law enforcement operations as well as potentially using non-lethal weapons against American citizens is a complete violation of the Posse Comitatus Act and the Insurrection Act, which substantially limit the powers of the federal government to use the military for law enforcement unless under precise and extreme circumstances.Section 1385 of the Posse Comitatus Act states, “Whoever, except in cases and under circumstances expressly authorized by the Constitution or Act of Congress, willfully uses any part of the Army or the Air Force as a posse comitatus or otherwise to execute the laws shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than two years, or both.”Under the John Warner Defense Authorization Act, signed by President Bush on October 17, 2006, the law was changed to state, “The President may employ the armed forces to restore public order in any State of the United States the President determines hinders the execution of laws or deprives people of a right, privilege, immunity, or protection named in the Constitution and secured by law or opposes or obstructs the execution of the laws of the United States or impedes the course of justice under those laws.”However, these changes were repealed in their entirety by HR 4986: National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2008, reverting back to the original state of the Insurrection Act of 1807.

– Joe 6 This is nothing but total JUNK science we are fighting enourmous fuel bills, and freezing while we are told were going to burn up, not to mention solar activity is down almost the lowest in NBC Fires Weather Channel Environmental Unit – Capital Weather Gang: BC Fires Weather Channel Environmental Unit Some on-camera meteorologists also let go ok * NBC Universal made the first of potentially several rounds of staffing cuts at The Weather Channel (TWC) on Wednesday, axing the entire staff of the “Forecast Earth” environmental program during the middle of NBC’s “Green Week,” as well as several on-camera meteorologists….  The timing of the Forecast Earth cancellation was ironic, since it came in the middle of NBC’s “Green Week,” during which the network has been touting its environmental coverage across all of its platforms.

Lawmaker Joins Fight To Outlaw Human Microchip Implants

2374) passed through the House State Government Committee last month and has now moved to the full House for consideration.The legislation calls for a civil penalty of up to $10,000 for any outside party, including government agencies, accessing personal information, such as driver’s license, Social Security or state identification number from any implanted devices.Josephs commented that implanted devices, though perhaps the most intrusive of surveillance devices are just one part of an overall larger move towards a surveillance society.She has also warned that medical research has linked the devices to the development of tumors.Josephs follows the trail blazing actions of Governor Jim Doyle of Wisconsin who signed a law in 2006 declaring it a crime to require an individual to be implanted with a microchip.The people of Wisconsin welcomed the RFID law which imposes fine of up to $10,000 per day for a violator….  Keith Johnson, retired toxicology pathologist from Dow Chemical, stated in an interview with the AP that his findings proved “The transponders were the cause of the tumors.”Such revelations were one cause of a steep decline in the stock price of implant devices in 2008.To understand just how easily a microchipped society could quickly become reality, read this excellent piece from 2006 by Kevin Haggerty of the Toronto Star.———————————————————————————————————————-Alex Jones LIVE, A Fourth Hour Now Added To The Infowars Radio Show For MembersClick here to get your subscription today!———————————————————————————————————————-Comment on this story Email This Page to: INFOWARS: BECAUSE THERE’S A WAR ON FOR YOUR MIND INFOWARS.net Copyright © 2001-2008 Alex Jones All rights reserved.

What does the $3.5bn Saudi gold rush in two weeks mean? « Peter J. Cooper’s Weblog

Cooper’s Weblog: What does the $3.5bn Saudi gold rush in two weeks mean?Filed under: Gold & Silver, Oil Prices, UAE Stocks, US Stocks — peterjcooper @ 8:22 am The revelation on this blog, actually sourced from what appears to be a reliable story in the Gulf News, the leading regional newspaper, that Saudi Arabia has spent a total of $3.5 billion on gold over the past two weeks has naturally attracted huge worldwide interest.I can not verify the source but all I can say is that this has the hallmarks of a genuine story, based on my 25 years in financial journalism….  And how could gold even make a dent against the GDPs of some countries which are measured in the trillions?Comment by Tyrone — November 15, 2008 @ 9:52 amI liked this from seekingalpha.com today – clearly gold is about to take-off sky high…that is what the Saudi gold buying means:“It took many years of study and analysis — and untold hours of staring at market fractal patterns — before I had one of those special “eureka” moments about the way markets behave at critical reversal points.Although it’s easy to lose sight of this, the main goal of any speculative endeavor is to figure out the point with the maximum potential return on capital, combined with the minimum potential risk to that capital.In my opinion, the point where there is the highest reward, with the lowest risk, is the third test of an important reversal level.Gold is undergoing just such a critical third test right now, and it’s doing that just above the massive $675 energy level that defined the whole last phase of the bull market.The upside is enormous from here, while the downside can be kept well under control, as a definitive breakdown to new closing lows would not be good in this situation, and would require immediate action to close down positions.Furthermore, the fractal dimension on the daily gold chart is at a very-high reading of 65, which is telling us that there is enormous energy available to power a very big trend.This is about as good as it gets for a long set-up in gold.Subscribers to the daily Fractal Gold Report are positioned well, as we took profits up at $920 right before the last plunge, and we again just took some quick profits before this latest decline, playing the short-term patterns while this bigger opportunity is developing.Right now is the time to get back into gold for the next major rally phase.

Discrepencies Suggest China Faked Spacewalk Footage

If you take a closer look at the video, you will find a power cord that connects the extravehicular spacesuit to the spacecraft.A pipeline could be added inside the cord, removing evidence from the breath of air if the video was shot underwater.Of course, some people may say that we clearly saw the astronauts flying weightlessly in the cabin and the space flight manual drifting in the air when it was let go, which should mean that they arrived at a zero gravity environment in outer space.Now, let’s look at the video where the astronauts were inside the cabin…. China has converted the FT-5 into a small zero-gravity aircraft.Please check out this video that was posted on Sina, a popular Chinese website (http://video.sina.com.cn/news/c/v/2008-09-09/124021271.shtml).In the video, the Chinese astronauts were conducting weightless training in a zero gravity aircraft.Video Discrepancy 4: Why Is There No Background Noise During the Space-talk?Reporter: The noise problem you talked about was also mentioned by some people on the internet.
