Researchers at the University of Maryland have developed a robot bird whose wings can flap independently of each other.
Called the "Robo Raven," the breakthrough engineering technology allows the robot to achieve any desired motion and to perform aerobatic maneuvers.
Developed by University of Maryland Professors S.K. Gupta and Hugh Bruck and their students, the robot birds could one day be used for reconnaissance and surveillance.
The final design enables a tiny video camera, can be launched from the ground, and can fly in winds up to 10 mph.
The micro air bird even fooled a local hawk, which attacked the robot in mid-flight on more than one occasion.

NSA Spying On – and Blackmailing – Top Government Officials and Military Officers

Washington’s Blog
June 21, 2013
NSA whistleblower Russel Tice – a key source in the 2005 New York Times report that blew the lid off the Bush administration’s use of warrantless wiretapping – told Peter B. Collins on Boiling Frogs Post (the website of FBI whistleblower Sibel Edmonds):
Tice: Okay. They went after–and I know this because I had my hands literally on the paperwork for these sort of things–they went after high-ranking military officers; they went after members of Congress, both Senate and the House, especially on the intelligence committees and on the armed services committees and some of the–and judicial. But they went after other ones, too. They went after lawyers and law firms. All kinds of–heaps of lawyers and law firms. They went after judges. One of the judges is now sitting on the Supreme Courtthat I had his wiretap information in my hand. Two are former FISA court judges. They went after State Department officials. They went after people in theexecutive service that were part of the White House–their own people. They went after antiwar groups. They went after U.S. international–U.S. companies that that do international business, you know, business around the world. They went after U.S. banking firms and financial firms that do international business. They went after NGOs that–like the Red Cross, people like that that go overseas and do humanitarian work. They went after a few antiwar civil rights groups. So, you know, don’t tell me that there’s no abuse, because I’ve had this stuff in my hand and looked at it. And in some cases, I literally was involved in the technology that was going after this stuff. And you know, when I said to [former MSNBC show host Keith] Olbermann, I said, my particular thing is high tech and you know, what’s going on is the other thing, which is the dragnet. The dragnet is what Mark Klein is talking about, the terrestrial dragnet. Well my specialty is outer space. I deal with satellites, and everything that goes in and out of space. I did my spying via space. So that’s how I found out about this.
Collins: Now Russ, the targeting of the people that you just mentioned, top military leaders, members of Congress, intelligence community leaders and the–oh, I’m sorry, it was intelligence committees, let me correct that–not intelligence community, and then executive branch appointees. This creates the basis, and the potential for massive blackmail.
Tice: Absolutely! And remember we talked about that before, that I was worried that the intelligence community now has sway over what is going on. Now here’s the big one. I haven’t given you any names. This was is summer of 2004. One of the papers that I held in my hand was to wiretap a bunch of numbers associated with, with a 40-something-year-old wannabe senator from Illinois. You wouldn’t happen to know where that guy lives right now, would you? It’s a big white house in Washington, DC. That’s who they went after. And that’s the president of the United States now.

Other whistleblowers say the same thing.  When the former head of the NSA’s digital spying program – William Binney – disclosed the fact that the U.S. was spying on everyone in the U.S. and storing the data forever, and that the U.S. was quickly becoming a totalitarian state, the Feds tried to scare him into shutting up:
[Numerous] FBI officers held a gun to Binney’s head as he stepped naked from the shower. He watched with his wife and youngest son as the FBI ransacked their home. Later Binney was separated from the rest of his family, and FBI officials pressured him to implicate one of the other complainants in criminal activity. During the raid, Binney attempted to report to FBI officials the crimes he had witnessed at NSA, in particular the NSA’s violation of the constitutional rights of all Americans. However, the FBI wasn’t interested in these disclosures. Instead, FBI officials seized Binney’s private computer, which to this day has not been returned despite the fact that he has not been charged with a crime.
Other NSA whistleblowers have also been subjected to armed raids and criminal prosecution.

Western-backed Syrian Rebels Massacre Shia Villagers

Western-backed Syrian Rebels Massacre Shia Villagers
Less than a month after a spokesman for the Western-backed “Free Syrian Army” threatened in a television interview to exterminate Shia Muslims across the nation, dozens of Shia villagers in Syria were massacred by Sunni rebel forces this week, according to international news reports citing government officials and opposition fighters. Analysts said the brutal killing spree, segments of which were recorded on video and posted online, illustrated the problems with the bloody “regime change” operation being waged by the Obama administration, European powers, Sunni Arab dictators, and oftentimes foreign jihadists on the ground. About two weeks ago, rebels also massacred a Christian village.       

Media accounts of the latest bloodbath reported that between 30 and 60 Shia civilians were killed by rebel forces in Hatla, a village in Deir al-Zour close to Iraq invaded by thousands of foreign-backed jihadists this week. While the Bashar al-Assad regime and opposition “activists” have offered slightly differing accounts of what happened, a general outline of the slaughter is starting to emerge — particularly as video evidence continues to surface online. The picture it paints is not pretty, and even some factions of the opposition have condemned the attacks on civilians amid an increasingly sectarian conflict fueled in large part by foreign powers.

In video recordings of the attack, rebel fighters — more than a few of whom were wearing what the Associated Press described as “Al-Qaida-style headbands” — boast about their murderous rampage. Amid the now-typical and incessant Islamist shouts of “Allahu Akbar,” opposition fighters can be seen torching civilian homes and celebrating over dead bodies. “This is your end, you dogs,” one rebel says, cursing the executed “pug-nosed” Shia Muslims shown in one video. Another man can be heard shouting “the homes of the infidel Shiites were burned."

In an online film cited by the New York Times, rebel forces show off the signature black flag used by al-Qaeda, its Syrian affiliate al-Nusra, and other Islamist terror groups. “We have raised the banner of ‘There Is No God but God’ over the houses of the rejectionist Shiite apostates,” an opposition fighter chants as the village burns, referring to Shia Muslims as “rejectionists” due to their different interpretation of Islam. “Here are the jihadists celebrating their storming of the rejectionists’ houses — the Shiite rejectionists!”

Communist Chinese Regime Forcing Rural Population Into Cities

Matheny's Note: This is part of Agenda 21....

Communist Chinese Regime Forcing Rural Population Into Cities
The communist dictatorship ruling over mainland China has a new centrally planned plot in the works, a controversial scheme that seeks to force hundreds of millions of farmers from rural areas to regime-dominated mega-cities being built across the nation. According to news reports, much of the land is being seized by force as the Chinese Communist Party works fiendishly to pack people into shoddy cookie-cutter buildings and cities sprouting up all over the country.

More than a few analysts, of course, have cited former Chinese dictator Mao Tse Tung’s central planning schemes, which killed tens of millions of innocent people through starvation and even outright murder. While the late communist tyrant was obsessed with forcing “industrialization” on China from the top down, the regime’s newest crop of autocrats is similarly determined to foist what is dubbed “urbanization” on the Chinese.

It appears increasingly clear that the vast rural population will be forced to submit and “urbanize” whether they like it or not — all for their own benefit, of course, the regime and its propagandists insist. The latest development, though, follows decades of centrally planned disasters triggered by Communist Party plans to redesign society.

Among the worst was the murderous “Cultural Revolution,” a program started by mass-murderer Mao designed to centralize and solidify communist control by attacking traditions, vestiges of the market system, and especially dissidents. Another tragedy brought about by the regimes scheming: the so-called “Great Leap Forward,” which was supposed to modernize the country away from its agricultural roots but actually led to the “Great Chinese Famine” and tens of millions dead.  

According to a report in the New York Times, the latest communist plan aims to relocate some 250 million rural people into urban areas over the next 12 years. The U.K. Telegraph, meanwhile, reported separately that around 400 million Chinese from the countryside were in the regime’s crosshairs to be corralled into sprawling new centrally planned cities being erected all across China. Bloomberg Businessweek said about half of China’s rural population of 650 million would be relocated by “nudging, urging, and sometimes forcing farmers and their families to settle in China’s cities.”   

First Andrew Breitbart, Now Journalist Michael Hastings?

First Andrew Breitbart, Now Journalist Michael Hastings?

 by SGT, SGT
Award-winning journalist Michael Hastings was killed in the early morning hours on Tuesday when, according to KTLA, his car hit a tree and “exploded on impact” in Hollywood.
33-year old Hastings was an investigative journalist for Rolling Stone and BuzzFeed. Hastings showed little fear exposing the criminal element within the U.S. government and military. Perhaps Hastings’ death was purely an accident. Perhaps it was something else.
It’s well known that the “car accident” is a favorite method of assassination among intelligence agencies. Perhaps the most famous example being the one which took the lives of Princess Diana and Dodi Fayed in 1997. In fact, Diana believed her life was in danger and even predicted her death when she wrote of her suspicion that “someone” [speculated to be Prince Charles] was “planning an accident in my car“.
And now the convenient-for-the-establishment “accident” which claimed Michael Hastings’ life on Tuesday, leaves us without the man who in just the past two years wrote the articles Inside Obama’s War Room,Julian Assange: The Rolling Stone InterviewThe Rise of the Killer Drones: How America Goes to War in Secret, and The Runaway General about Stanley McChrystal, Obama’s top commander in Afghanistan.
Was 33-year old journalist Michael Hastings assassinated for a story he was working, or to send yet another Breitbart-style message to the Fourth Estate? I doubt we will ever know. But as a safe driver with a modern vehicle surrounded by multiple air bags and practically innumerable safety features, if I ever perish unexpectedly at 4:15 in the morning in my exploding car, I certainly hope someone demands a thorough investigation.
One last note about Michael’s untimely death, the top comment on Gawker tonight: “Murdered”.

Big Brother alert: Cameras in the cable box to monitor TV viewers

Cheryl K. Chumley
Washington Times
June 18, 2013
It hardly gets more Orwellian than this. New technology would allow cable companies to peer directly into television watchers’ homes and monitor viewing habits and reactions to product advertisements.
The technology would come via the cable box, and at least one lawmaker on Capitol Hill is standing in opposition.
Mass. Democratic Rep. Michael Capuano has introduced a bill, the We Are Watching You Act, to prohibit the technology on boxes and collection of information absent consumer permission. The bill would also require companies that do use the data to show “we are watching you” messages on the screen and to explain just what kinds of information is being captured and for what reasons, AdWeek reported.

Has inflation fueled the two income household trap in the US? How inflation has eroded the purchasing power of the working and middle class.

June 17, 2013

Inflation in the United States is largely seen as a built in part of our economy.  People take it for granted as if this was simply the order of things.  Yet our central banking system has inflated our debt based financial system and subsequently, the value of money has eroded.  For example, most items that are financed through debt have increased dramatically during a time when household income has reverted to inflation adjusted levels of the 1990s.  The cost of inflation is hidden of course from the eyes of the public as to not shock people into action.  Playing with interest rates, a car that once cost $20,000 is now going for $30,000 but the monthly payment has remained the same thanks to theFed’s unrelenting push to lower interest rates.  There is a cost to all of this of course.  If it were so simple to fix an economy, the Fed would simply send unlimited debit cards to each and every American.  Inflation is a threat to the economy from the perspective that it destroys the purchasing power of working and middle class Americans, those with limited access to debt.  In our economy, debt provides access to real assets and those with the most access to debt (banks) can lock into the larger share of assets (i.e., banks now buying up thousands of rental properties).  Is inflation a main culprit in the two income trap?
Where inflation hurts
Americans store most of their wealth in real estate.  So you would think that the rise in real estate values is a good thing:
housing inflation
Nationwide, home values are now increasing at a double-digit annual pace.  The only problem is that this is coming in the form of big money crowding out regular home buyers.  The data is convincing.  Nearly one out of four purchases for the last few years has come from investors.  The battle for limited homes in places like Arizona and Nevada has created a secondary bubble.  Regular people may not even know that inflation is occurring but the only reason this is happening is that low rates are putting pressure on real assets in the economy.  In the end, you pay more but your monthly payment is likely to remain the same.  The public for the most part does not pay attention to what the Federal Reserve does.
The impact of this on real estate is the pressure on rents and home values.  This would be fine if household incomes were going up.  But many families in the US are now in a two income trap simply to keep up.  In the past, it was possible to purchase a home, go to college, and pay for basic necessities with one blue collar job without going into massive debt.  That seems so “old school” but that was the nucleus of the US middle class.  That is no longer the case:
Adjusting for inflation, Americans now have less discretionary income compared to a 1970s family and have much higher fixed costs.  Is this a positive revelation?  Probably not and families are struggling to send their kids to college and also are having a harder time saving for retirement.  It is interesting because more families now have two incomes under one roof instead of one:
working spouses
It is great when both spouses are working because they are doing it out of their desire for career growth and professional development.  It is another thing when both working adults in a household need to work simply to put food on the table and make ends meet to pay the mortgage.  Also, childcare and other costs eat into any additional income that is brought into the household.
The basic needs
The basic needs of daily life are getting more expensive on an annual basis.  We hear about computing costs getting lower but most of your money will go to food, energy, housing, and other expenses like college and healthcare.  The bulk goes to housing (over one-third for most households) so the rise in home values of double-digits with no subsequent growth in income is an inflationary trap.  The price of a home just got much more expensive but the monthly payment in a sneaky way stayed the same.
Take a look at how much it costs to fuel your car:
gas prices
In the last 10 years, the cost of a regular gallon of gas has gone up 270 percent.  Has household income gone up 270 percent?  College costs have soared even more dramatically pushing the total student debt outstanding to well over $1 trillion.  A family trying to get ahead needs to go into massive debt just to keep up.  How else will the median household income of $50,000 pay for a college education for their kids?  Since blue collar jobs are no longer an entry point into the middle class, most of the new emerging middle class jobs do require a set of tangible skills.  This is why the total credit market has ballooned in the last few decades detaching from GDP:
total credit market debt owed
Up until the 1970s the total debt market kept track with total GDP.  This is no longer the case.  Total debt is multiple times larger than GDP (total debt outstanding is approaching $60 trillion).  For many families, the two income household is simply a way of keeping up as inflation erodes purchasing power.  Many may not see it directly since the dollars coming in seem the same (they are for the most part) but what they are able to buy in the marketplace has decreased:
-That $100,000 home is now $150,000
-That $20,000 car is now $30,000
-That $2,500 state school education is now $10,000
This is how inflation has pushed more and more people into a two income trap.  Inflation is a subtle economic force and many people don’t realize that for years, this slow erosion has made them poorer.  Two incomes are a necessity for many, not a luxury.

FBI director admits domestic use of drones for surveillance

RT News
June 19, 2013
FBI Director Robert Mueller (Reuters / Yuri Gripas)

The FBI uses drones for domestic surveillance purposes, the head of the agency told Congress early Wednesday.
Robert Mueller, the director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation, confirmed to lawmakers that the FBI owns several unmanned aerial vehicles, but has not adopted any strict policies or guidelines yet to govern the use of the controversial aircraft.
“Does the FBI use drones for surveillance on US soil?” Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) asked Mr Mueller during an oversight hearing on Capitol Hill Wednesday before the Senate Judiciary Committee.
“Yes,” Mueller responded bluntly, adding that the FBI’s operation of drones is “very seldom.”

Asked by Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-California) to elaborate, Mueller added, “It’s very seldom used and generally used in a particular incident where you need the capability.” Earlier in the morning, however, Mueller said that the agency was only now working to establish set rules for the drone program.

Mueller began answering questions just after 10 a.m. EDT. He briefly touched on the recently exposed NSA surveillance program that has marred the reputation of the United States intelligence community. Mueller said 22 agents have access to a vast surveillance database, including 20 analysts and two overseers.

When Sen. Al Franken (D-Minnesota) asked Mueller later in the morning if he’d consider being more open about the FBI’s surveillance methods, the director expressed reluctance to be more transparent. Mueller said the FBI has and will continue to weigh the possibility of publishing more information about its spy habits, but warned that doing so would be to the advantage of America’s enemies.

“There is a price to be paid for that transparency,” Mueller said. “I certainly think it would be educating our adversaries as to what our capabilities are.”

Lying Signs and Wonders?

Mark matheny
June 19, 2013

Are these one of the lying signs and wonders spoken of in the Bible???

And then shall that Wicked be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming: Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders, II Thessalonians 2:8-9
This from the Telegraph:

 The Holy See has yet to reveal what the miracle was or where and when it took place but Vatican sources said it would “amaze the world”.
It concerns the “extraordinary healing” of a Costa Rican woman who was cured of a severe brain injury after her family began praying to the memory of the late Polish pope, according to reports in the Italian media.
Details of the miracle are likely to be announced at the end of this month or at the beginning of July, a Vatican insider told The Daily Telegraph.
John Paul II was beatified — the first step towards sainthood — in a lavish outdoor ceremony in St Peter’s Square in May 2011.
The second miracle — which is required in order for him to be given full sainthood — reportedly occurred on the very day of his beatification.

BREAKING: Secret Service Invades Home Of Obama Critic Over Twitter Followers

secret service tom francoisOff The Grid News
June 6, 2013
Tom Francois was visited by the Secret Service merely because he posted anti-Obama messages for his “large”Twitter following to read. I am sick and tired of looking out the window to see if Old Glory is still flying to reaffirm my shaky belief that I still reside in America. Francois never threatened the president; he simply lambasts and lampoons his actions, facial expressions, and unconstitutional policies. The most thin-skinned president in the history of the Republic has proven once again that he has nothing but disdain for the First Amendment.
The Secret Service agents arrived at the home of Tom Francois and asked if they could come inside and take a look around. Noting that he had nothing to hide and not wanting to see his things tossed about if the agents were forced to wait for a warrant, the avid political cartoon creator let the men inside. Francois maintains that while he loathes Barack Obama’s policies, he has never threatened his being in any way, shape, or form. I scanned hundreds of Francois’ tweets (which were the cited reasons for the Secret Service agents arriving on the blogger’s porch), and saw nothing violent—just the same angst felt by millions of Constitution-loving patriots.
Francois was reportedly told by the Secret Service agents that his large Twitter following was a concern. While Tom does have a sizeable number of followers, his numbers do not make him anywhere near a household name – perhaps that is what President Obama was trying to prevent.

U.S. Troops, Missiles at Syrian Border

The New American
June 17, 2013

U.S. Troops, Missiles at Syrian Border
A task force of 300 U.S. Marines and a Patriot anti-aircraft missile system have been deployed along Syria's border with Jordan as the United States prepares to ship weapons to rebel forces in the two-year-old civil war in Syria that has so far taken an estimated 93,000 lives. The missile system and as many as eight F-16 fighter jets will likely remain in Jordan following the multi-national military exercise now underway in Jordan, military officials told NBC News. Meanwhile, speculation continues over the possible establishment of a no-fly zone over Syria to thwart aerial attacks on the rebels by the Bashar al-Assad regime. U.S. officials appeared to be downplaying that possibility, while at the same time not ruling it out.
"We have been clear that we are not excluding options, but at this stage no decision has been taken," Susan Rice, the U.S. ambassador to the United Nations and President Obama's incoming national security adviser, told the Reuters news service.
The United States and Great Britain imposed a no-fly zone against the air force of Saddam Hussein during the 12 years between the two Iraq wars, and a U.S. and NATO air defense of rebel factions in Libya helped topple the regime of Moammar Gadhafi in 2011. But Deputy National Security Adviser Benjamin Rhodes said Thursday that a similar effort in Syria would face greater obstacles, including "open-ended costs for the United States and the international community." "It's far more complex to undertake the type of effort, for instance, in Syria than it was in Libya," Rhodes said. U.S. planes over Syria would be up against sophisticated anti-aircraft systems from Russia, a major supplier of weapons to the Damascus government.
Russia condemned the decision to provide weapons to the rebels, along with the military exercise, called Eager Lion, taking place within 75 miles of the Syrian border in northern Jordan. About 5,000 U.S. troops are among the 8,000 military personnel from Western and Arab nations taking part in the three-week exercise that began June 9. It will end with "a massive display of sea-land capabilities, June 18-20," the U.S. Army News Service announced
"This is happening very close to Syria, where for more than two years the flames of a devastating conflict are burning that Russia and its American partners are trying to stop by proposing to hold an international peace conference as soon as possible," Russian Foreign Ministry spokesman Aleksandr Lukashevich protested.

G20 summits: GCHQ intercepted foreign politicians’ communications

London Guardian
June 17, 2013
Foreign politicians and officials who took part in two G20 summit meetings in London in 2009 had their computers monitored and their phone calls intercepted on the instructions of their British government hosts, according to documents seen by the Guardian. Some delegates were tricked into using internet cafes which had been set up by British intelligence agencies to read their email traffic.
The revelation comes as Britain prepares to host another summit on Monday – for the G8 nations, all of whom attended the 2009 meetings which were the object of the systematic spying. It is likely to lead to some tension among visiting delegates who will want the prime minister to explain whether they were targets in 2009 and whether the exercise is to be repeated this week.
The disclosure raises new questions about the boundaries of surveillance by GCHQ and its American sister organisation, the National Security Agency, whose access to phone records and internet data has been defended as necessary in the fight against terrorism and serious crime. The G20 spying appears to have been organised for the more mundane purpose of securing an advantage in meetings. Named targets include long-standing allies such as South Africa and Turkey.

Obama runs immigration bill from White House, according to new report

Daily Caller
June 17, 2013

The White House is playing a larger role in developing the Gang of Eight’s immigration bill than its supporters publicly admit, according to a forthcoming article in The New Yorker.
“‘No decisions are being made without talking to us about it,’ the official said of the Gang of Eight negotiations … ‘This does not fly if we’re not O.K. with it,’” a senior Obama official told author Ryan Lizza for the pending article.
White House officials also believe the emerging bill will be a huge success for President Barack Obama.

“If a Gang of Eight-style bill is signed into law by the President, it will probably be one of the top five legislative accomplishments in the last twenty years,” the official said. “It’s a huge piece of business.”
The report points out other evidence of close White House involvement.
