Iran Preparing to Down Civilian Passenger Planes if its Nuclear Program Attacked

2 July, 2012

Nothing like trying to fight a gentlemen’s war with an enemy who still uses rocks to wipe his butt with:

Source: Iran preparing to down American passenger planes
By Reza Kahlili – DailyCaller

A source who served in Iranian intelligence says the Iranian regime is preparing to down Western airliners in case of an attack on the Islamic Republic’s nuclear program.

Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, Iran’s supreme leader, has been preparing for war for some time as the Islamic regime closes in on developing nuclear weapons, says a source who served in the Iranian Revolutionary Guards’ intelligence and has recently defected to a country in Europe.

The source said the regime has taken several measures should war erupt:

  • Thirty-two command and control centers have been formed around the country so that the Guards and the Basij can act independently in battle. In case of a breakdown of communication with the central government, their orders are to suppress any uprising from within and confront any potential enemy.
  • All political prisoners and all activists within the country are to be slaughtered, as are those Iranian opponents outside the country, to ensure no viable opposition will remain to guide an uprising to overthrow of the regime.
  • Thousands of cells have been established in collaboration with Hezbollah to conduct terrorist acts against Israel, America and the West. One specific preparation, as discussed by the Guard commanders, is to target America’s civilian airliners in order to cause terror in the West.

[…]

The source [also] said that Iran is close to obtaining a nuclear bomb, which regime leaders believe will make them invincible. The source and others disenchanted with the regime also wonder why the West is vacillating and allowing Iran to pursue its destructive goals.

UK Arrests Muzzy Boaters in Suspected Plot to Disrupt Olympics

29 June, 2012

I get a kick out of how the journalists attempt to distance the Muzzy jihadists from Islam by making sure we all know that these two are “converts” to Islam.  Would they be so apologetic if Christian converts were to blame?

London 2012 Olympics: Muslim converts held over ‘Games plot’
Two Muslim converts have been arrested in East London on suspicion of plotting an attack against the London 2012 Olympic Games canoeing venue.
By Duncan Gardham and Andrew Hough – Telegraph.uk

Sources told The Daily Telegraph that the arrests were based on a tip-off after men were seen behaving suspiciously close to the venue in Waltham Abbey, Hertfordshire on Monday.

Hertfordshire police officers began combing the banks after three men were seen in a dinghy on the River Lea.

The two men, aged 18 and 32, were arrested at separate residential addresses in east London, by officers from the Metropolitan Police Counter-Terrorism Command, at 7am on Thursday.

They were detained under the Terrorism Act 2000 on suspicion of the commission, preparation or instigation of acts of terrorism and held at a central London police station. Officers were last night searching two addresses in East London.

A friend of the arrested men named the 18-year-old as Jamal ud-Din and said the older man was someone he knew only as “Zakariya.”

Hmm…  A quick internet search of “Jamal Uddin” led me to this photo from the DailyMail.uk:

Gee, notice any resemblance?  Yup, that’s right, Jamaal is a busy, busy, little activist Muzzy.

(Too bad Allah forgot to ban explosives) 

Mizanur Rahman, 29, said the arrests “might have had something to do with the fact that they recently went canoeing” on the River Lea, a branch of which runs through the Olympic site in east London.

“It’s just people trying to get into the Olympic spirit,” he told the Associated Press but added he believed the authorities would try “painting it as jihad training.”

[Insert yer jokes here…]

Residents living in the Hazlemere marina, near the Olympic canoeing venue, reported a significant police operation, involving up to 30 officers, had been launched after several men were seen behaving suspiciously in a dinghy on Monday night.

It took detectives another two days before dawn raids were carried out in East London.

Americans buy record numbers of guns for Christmas

2 January, 2012


I own no firearms (at least the registered variety) those things are dangerous. I stopped that nonsense years ago. Every weapon that could ever be traced back to me by old paper records has been sold, traded or given away. I own zero firearms, if you do not believe me then check the records, let the guvment find out where they went. Did I mention that I recently picked up a sweet little firearm like object capable of sending projectiles at high velocity? You have to love Christmas.

Now I am not advocating any of you to break any laws. I will simply remind you all that the biggest threat to your firearms might not be a sixteen year old thief crawling in your back window. If that is really what you are afraid of then by all means register one firearm just to be on the safe side should you feel the need to shoot a crack addicted teenager crawling through your window. Some of us have additional concerns past the punk kid.

By Nick Allen, Jan 3, year zero, the Telegraph
According to the FBI, over 1.5 million background checks on customers were requested by gun dealers to the National Instant Criminal Background Check System in December. Nearly 500,000 of those were in the six days before Christmas.
-God bless all law abiding Americans.

It was the highest number ever in a single month, surpassing the previous record set in November.

On Dec 23 alone there were 102,222 background checks, making it the second busiest single day for buying guns in history.
-I feel liberals sweating

The actual number of guns bought may have been even higher if individual customers took home more than one each.
-Not likely, guns are expensive. Most bought only one.

Explanations for America’s surge in gun buying include that it is a response to the stalled economy with people fearing crime waves. Another theory is that buyers are rushing to gun shops because they believe tighter firearms laws will be introduced in the future.
-That would be my biggest concern if I owned any.

The National Rifle Association said people were concerned about self defence because police officer numbers were declining.
-I asked a few of my friends in the LEO community what they would do if ordered to seize weapons and all to a person said “quit” now do you feel safe? (more…)

TSA Creator Says the Whole Thing is a Complete Fiasco – Now Supports Dismantling TSA and Privatizing Airport Security

12 September, 2011

Hey, who am I to argue?:

TSA Creator Says Dismantle, Privatize the Agency
by  Audrey Hudson
09/12/2011Human Events

They’ve been accused of rampant thievery, spending billions of dollars like drunken sailors, groping children and little old ladies, and making everyone take off their shoes.

But the real job of the tens of thousands of screeners at the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) is to protect Americans from a terrorist attack.

Yet a decade after the TSA was created following the September 11 attacks, the author of the legislation that established the massive agency grades its performance at “D-.”

“The whole program has been hijacked by bureaucrats,” said Rep. John Mica (R. -Fla.), chairman of the House Transportation Committee.

“It mushroomed into an army,” Mica said.  “It’s gone from a couple-billion-dollar enterprise to close to $9 billion.”

As for keeping the American public safe, Mica says, “They’ve failed to actually detect any threat in 10 years.”

“Everything they have done has been reactive.  They take shoes off because of [shoe-bomber] Richard Reid, passengers are patted down because of the diaper bomber, and you can’t pack liquids because the British uncovered a plot using liquids,” Mica said.

“It’s an agency that is always one step out of step,” Mica said.

It cost $1 billion just to train workers, which now number more than 62,000, and “they actually trained more workers than they have on the job,” Mica said.

“The whole thing is a complete fiasco,” Mica said.

In a wide-ranging interview with HUMAN EVENTS just days before the 10th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks, Mica said screeners should be privatized and the agency dismantled.

Instead, the agency should number no more than 5,000, and carry out his original intent, which was to monitor terrorist threats and collect intelligence.

Chinese Military Show Accidentally Reveals Previously Denied Hacking Endeavors

22 August, 2011

Huang Xueping, spokesman for the Chinese Ministry of Defense, said back in February 2010:

“Linking Internet hacking activities to the Chinese government and military is totally unfounded and utterly irresponsible […] This is stirring up a fuss for ulterior motives.”

Hm…  Seems Xueping has a “rot of  ezprain’n” to do:

EXPOSED: A picture of the hacking software shown during the Chinese military program. The large writing at the top says "Select Attack Target." The IP Addres was selected from a drop-down list of Falun Gong websites, while the button on the left says "Attack."

Slip-Up in Chinese Military TV Show Reveals More Than Intended
Piece shows cyber warfare against US entities
By Matthew Robertson & Helena Zhu
Epoch Times 

A standard, even boring, piece of Chinese military propaganda screened in mid-July included what must have been an unintended but nevertheless damaging revelation: shots from a computer screen showing a Chinese military university is engaged in cyberwarfare against entities in the United States.

The documentary itself was otherwise meant as praise to the wisdom and judgment of Chinese military strategists, and a typical condemnation of the United States as an implacable aggressor in the cyber-realm. But the fleeting shots of an apparent China-based cyber-attack somehow made their way into the final cut.

The screenshots appear as B-roll footage in the documentary for six seconds—between 11:04 and 11:10 minutes [0:38 to 0:44 on the Youtube video]—showing custom-built Chinese software apparently launching a cyber-attack against the main website of the Falun Gong spiritual practice, by using a compromised IP address belonging to a United States university. As of Aug. 22 at 1:30pm EDT, in addition to Youtube, the whole documentary is available on the CCTV website.

The screenshots show the name of the software and the Chinese university that built it, the Electrical Engineering University of China’s People’s Liberation Army—direct evidence that the PLA is involved in coding cyber-attack software directed against a Chinese dissident group.

The software window says “Choose Attack Target.” The computer operator selects an IP address from a list—it happens to be 138.26.72.17—and then selects a target. Encoded in the software are the words “Falun Gong website list,” showing that attacking Falun Gong websites was built into the software.

A drop-down list of dozens of Falun Gong websites appears. The computer operator chooses Minghui.org, the main website of the Falun Gong spiritual practice.

The IP address 138.26.72.17 belongs to the University of Alabama in Birmingham (UAB), according to an online trace.

The shots then show a big “Attack” button on the bottom left being pushed, before the camera cuts away.

“The CCP has leaked its top secret here,” says Jason Ma, a commentator for New Tang Dynasty Television. “This is the first time we see clearly that one of the top Chinese military universities is doing this research and developing software for cyber-attacks. There’s solid proof of it in this video,” he said.

The Chinese Communist Party has consistently denied that it is involved in cyber-attacks, but experts have long suspected that the Chinese military engages in them.

Janet Napolitano: Using Common Sense and Concentrating Terrorist Screening Efforts on Muslim Men Under 35 Is Not Good Logic

Yeah…  In Nappylatino’s lezbo mind, it’s not good logic because then TSA agents wouldn’t get to feel up all those little girls’ crotches:

Two Christians Arrested Over Terror Plot in NY…Err…Scratch That…

12 May, 2011

With names like Mohammad and Ahmed, I’m going to go out on a limb here and posit that they are followers of the agathokakological Allah and his pestiferous prophet:

Two men arrested over alleged terror plot in New York

May 12, 2011 – NYPost

Two men arrested in relation to an alleged terror plot in New York City were of Moroccan and Algerian descent, FOX News reported Thursday.

Moroccan Mohammad Mamdouh and Algerian Ahmed Serhani were arrested late Wednesday and were expected to be charged under the state’s terrorism laws. Both were American citizens.

In an unusual move, Manhattan district attorney Cyrus Vance’s office decided to prosecute after the FBI declined to get involved, sources told The Post.

Serhani was a drugs dealer, FOX News reported, with a source saying he was allegedly trying to sell narcotics to finance the purchase of a weapon for a possible attack on a synagogue. However, the pair had not actually purchased any weapons at the time of their arrests.

The men were expected to be arraigned Thursday and New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg was scheduled to address the media at an afternoon news conference, The New York Times reported.

The plot was not in retaliation for the killing of Usama bin Laden, a source said, since it had been planned before his death.

Officials did not disclose what had led to the arrests.

Inflight Passenger Rushes Cockpit Screaming “Allahu Ackbar!”

10 May, 2011

Gee, now what could possibly have motivated a peace loving Yemeni man to freak out and endanger all of the passengers and crew on a jumbo jet?

H/T – TGUSA

Suspect in flight disturbance had Calif. ID
AP – Via Fox News

SAN FRANCISCO –  The passengers sat stunned as they watched a man walk quickly toward the front of American Airlines Flight 1561 as it was descending toward San Francisco. He was screaming and then began pounding on the cockpit door.

“I kept saying to myself: ‘What’s he doing? Does he have a bomb? Is he armed?'” passenger Angelina Marty said.

Within moments Sunday, a flight attendant tackled Rageh Almurisi. Authorities do not yet have a motive.

Um…  Just a wild guess here, but could it be Islam?

While authorities said that Almurisi, 28, of Vallejo, Calif., has no clear or known ties to terrorism, the incident underscored fears that extremists may try to mount attacks to retaliate for the death of al-Qaida leader Osama bin Laden last week.

Federal agents are investigating Almurisi’s background. He was carrying a Yemeni passport and a California identification card, authorities said.

[…]

Welcome to California, the sanctuary state for terrorists and illegal immigrants where official ID’s are handed out like chocolates and bubble gum.  Too bad Osama Bin Laden didn’t think to go there, else he might still be freely roaming around alive and well; sheltered by the state.

Almurisi went toward the cockpit door 30 minutes before the flight from Chicago was supposed to land on Sunday night, San Francisco airport police Sgt. Michael Rodriguez said. Almurisi was yelling unintelligibly as he brushed past a flight attendant.

Marty, 35, recalled that she and other passengers on the plane were stunned when they saw Almurisi walking down the aisle. She said a woman in a row across from her who speaks Arabic translated that Almurisi said “God is Great!” in Arabic.

Hey, if you are over 30 years old and don’t know by now that “Allahu Ackbar” means “Allah is Great,” then you are obviously a brain-dead, libtarded ignoramus—just the type of person Obama is counting on to win the next election.

Andrew Wai, another passenger, told KGO-TV on Monday that the wife of one of the men who took Almurisi down later said Almurisi was yelling “Allahu Akbar.”

[…]

A male flight attendant tackled Almurisi, and other crew members and passengers, including a retired Secret Service agent and a retired San Mateo police officer, helped subdue him as he banged on the door, police said. The flight attendant put plastic handcuffs on him.

[…]

Wai also said Almurisi appeared “fidgety” in his seat when he saw him on the way to the bathroom earlier in the flight.

The Boeing 737 carrying 162 people landed safely at 9:10 p.m. Almurisi was placed into police custody, as some passengers cried.

Coming to a Neighborhood Near You: Backscatter Vans

10 March, 2011

Whatever happened to the Fourth Amendment?  Oh, that’s right; the Muzzies gave those fascist commies in our government an excuse to chuck that old thing right out the window:

TSA, DHS plan massive rollout of mobile surveillance vans with long-distance X-ray capability, eye movement tracking and more

(NaturalNews) Newly-released documents obtained by the Electronic Privacy Information Center (EPIC) reveal that the US Depart of Homeland Security has been working on plans to roll out a new wave of mobile surveillance technologies at train stations, stadiums and streets. These new technologies will track your eye movements, capture and record your facial dimensions for face-recognition processing, bathe you in X-rays to look under your clothes, and even image your naked body using whole-body infrared images that were banned from consumer video cameras because they allowed the camera owners to take “nude” videos of people at the beach.

Most importantly, many of these technologies are designed to be completely hidden, allowing the government to implement “covert inspection of moving subjects.” You could be walking down a hallway at a sports stadium, in other words, never knowing that you’re being bathed in X-rays from the Department of Homeland Security, whose operators are covertly looking under your clothes to see if you’re carrying any weapons.

Roving vans to “track eye movements”

According to a Forbes.com article (http://blogs.forbes.com/andygreenbe…), one project pursued by DHS using technology from Siemens would “mount backscatter x-ray scanners and video cameras on roving vans, along with other cameras on buildings and utility poles, to monitor groups of pedestrians, assess what they carried, and even track their eye movements.”

Another project involved developing “a system of long range x-ray scanning to determine what metal objects an individual might have on his or her body at distances up to thirty feet.”

We already know that the U.S. government has purchased 500 vans using covert backscatter technology to covertly scan people on the streets (http://blogs.forbes.com/andygreenbe…). They’re called “Z Backscatter Vans, or ZBVs.”

This is all part of the U.S. government’s new wave of police state surveillance that aims to track and irradiate innocent civilians who have committed no crime. Under the new Janet Napolitano regime, all Americans are now considered potential terrorists, and anyone can be subjected to government-sanctioned radiation scanning at any time, without their knowledge or approval.

And don’t think these efforts will be limited merely to backscatter technology: The TSA is now testing full-power, deep-penetrating X-ray machines (like the ones that deliver chest X-rays in hospitals) in order to check people for bombs they may have swallowed. Yes, Janet Napolitano now wants to look inside your colon! And they’re willing to X-ray everyone — without their consent — in order to do that.

Read the documents yourself
If you have trouble believing the U.S. government is unleashing a new wave of police state covert scanning vans on to the streets of America, you can read the documents yourself — all 173 pages. They’re available on the EPIC website at: http://epic.org/privacy/body_scanne…

EPIC calls these vans “mobile strip search devices” because they give the federal government technology to look under your clothes without your permission or consent. It’s also being done without probable cause, so it’s a violation of the Fourth Amendment protections that are guaranteed to Americans under the Bill of Rights.

“It’s a clear violation of the fourth amendment that’s very invasive, not necessarily effective, and poses all the same radiation risks as the airport scans,” said EPIC attorney Ginger McCall, in the Forbes article (above).

Huge health risks to the population
It’s not just the privacy issues that raise red flags here, of course: It’s also the fact that the U.S. government has no respect whatsoever for the health of its citizens who are being subjected to these radiation emitting devices. Even while the TSA refuses to release testing results from its own naked body scanners, DHS keeps buying more machines (and more powerful machines) that will only subject travelers to yet more radiation.

As we’ve already reported here on NaturalNews.com, numerous scientists are already on the record warning that the TSA’s backscatter “naked body scanners” could cause breast cancer, sperm mutation and other health problems (http://www.naturalnews.com/030607_n…).

But the U.S. government doesn’t seem to care what happens to your health. Their position is that their “right” to know what you’re carrying under your clothes or inside your body overrides your right to privacy or personal health. All they have to do is float a couple of fabricated terrorism scare stories every few months, and then use those “threats” as justification for violating the Constitutional rights of U.S. citizens are very turn.

The real question in all this, of course, is how far will this go? The TSA is already reaching down your pants and feeling up peoples’ genitals as part of the “security” measures. Will DHS soon just start subjecting people to body cavity searches as a necessary security requirement before entering a football stadium, for example? Will Americans now be X-rayed with cancer-causing ionizing radiation — without their awareness or consent — merely because they are walking down the street or boarding a train?

That seems to be the case. And as you can readily tell from all this, it’s getting harder and harder for the fast-dwindling group of deniers to claim America isn’t already a police state. The USA is fast becoming a high-tech version of the very worst police state tyrannies witnessed throughout human history. The only difference is that now they have “science” on their side with the coolest new technology that can violate your rights and irradiate your body in a hundred different ways, with high-resolution images and digital storage devices.

I suppose if all this were being done to really stop international terrorists, that might be one thing. But what has become increasingly clear in observing the government’s behavior in this realm is that the U.S. government now considers Americans to be the enemy — especially those who have the gall to defend their Constitutionally-protected freedoms or question the unjustified centralization of power taking place right now in Washington.

The DHS is America’s new secret police. And their cameras are pointing inward, into the everyday lives of Americans; not outward, aimed at international terrorists.

When the price of security becomes forfeiting your liberty, the source of the “terror” is no longer the terrorists but your own government. Isn’t this the lesson that history has taught us well?

Watch the talk by Naomi Wolf, who explains all this extremely well:

WA: Restaurant Near Sea-Tac Refuses to Serve TSA Agents

24 February, 2011

Yup, making friends wherever they go:

NOTE: I moved the Star Wars Adidas video below the fold because it was playing automatically when refreshing the screen.

Seattle-Area Restaurant Refuses To Serve TSA Agents
By Chris Morran – The Consumerist

Fed up with what he views as crappy treatment from the TSA, the owner of a restaurant near Seattle-Tacoma International Airport has decided to put all TSA agents on his No-Eat List.

“We have posted signs on our doors basically saying that they aren’t allowed to come into our business,” one employee tells travel journalist Christopher Elliott. “We have the right to refuse service to anyone.”

She says that whenever a TSA agent attempts to dine at the restaurant, “we turn our backs and completely ignore them, and tell them to leave… Their kind aren’t welcomed in our establishment.”

The restaurant claims that 90% of its patrons are in agreement with their stance and that the local police have actually helped escort TSA workers off the premises.

“Until TSA agents start treating us with the respect and dignity that we deserve, then things will change for them in the private sector,” says the employee.
