There is nothing better than walking by "The Freedom Tower" surrounded by a bunch of goons armed to the fucking teeth.  I never felt freer, bitchez.  I'm just happy they are keeping all of those great employees from Goldman and Moodys safe.  "Fortress Manhattan" for everybody.

MY QUESTION IS -- If this is such a credible homeland security threat, why is Janet Napolitano wasting her time clapping in the chamber instead of looking for this threat that is suppose to have the nation on edge?

True story, I was in an ACE hardware picking up some stuff.  Grabbed some duct tape, which is always in high demand at the house and went to the checkout.  Saw a couple of people ahead of me with duct tape and plastic.  They were NOT hardware store people.  Older ladies, well dressed and looking uncomfortable.

One looks at me and says "you are buying it too."  I gave her a puzzled look and shrugged.  Only later did I figure out about the whole "safe room" garbage that came out.  

Lotsa sheep out there.

Rarely a fun weekend without some duct tape, those big 18" nylon cable ties, gallon size ziploc bags, hacksaw blades...um...forget I mentioned it.

B4 9/11 the USG didn't know abot AQ.  Now in dealing w/terrorism it knows no other term.  Western intelligence is an oxymoron and these fools persistently get Americans killed by their incompetence and stupidity.  The Kremlin appreciates their foolhardiness.

10 Years Later: Was Russia Behind 9/11?

Get ready for a false flag. This is just unreal. This is all based on recent intel from the UBL raid? What in the mother fuck would the media do without all of these lies to jizz on?

I miss the good old days when a roundtable chaired by some "trusted" type turned to the guy on his left (or right) and said, "Well, that was a pretty good speech. What do you think, John (Sue, David)?"

And, the other guy would NOT SAY: Breaking News - "A TERRORIST might strike over the up-coming period somewhere between here and there using something... and now - stay tuned for WIPE-OUT !!!"

Jeez...

What would you bet that an attack, engineered by TPTB, this Sunday, would spook all of the sheep back into their pens?

I'm only kind of kidding, because I can visualize it actually working, and fear that the distance my jaw would drop would cause enough damage that I would need to see an oral surgeon.

If anyone watched the Republican debate, then you'll understand why I intend to ignore any terrorist act I witness that appears to be capable of killing more Bachman supporters than other Americans. [or supporters of Perry, Romney, Santorum, Cain, or Newd]

Won't happen. Those supporters are domestic terrorists and they will most likely come after you and the underprivileged.

They must have heard Larry Silverstein found asbestos in the old Sears Tower.

How to quickly "remodel" the tower and remove asbestos, while collecting 100% from the insurance?

Keep an eye on the Israeli companies moving out of the WIllis tower....

Once one comes to the conclusion that WTC-7 (and probably the others) were dropped by explosives, it's really hard to take this whole DHS thing with other than complete derision.

It is so clearly an inside job after taking in the totality of evidence that the idea of them passing DHS/TSA and Patriot Act really chaps my ass.

If they pull another false flag they had better do a decent job of covering that fact up this time or I think there will be some civil unrest starting shortly thereafter.

Here's a new video on WTC 7 that I saw online today.

If they do pull another false flag, I'm done.  I wont fucking care anymore. Option A- leave the country. Option B- leave the earth.  If I have to go with option B, lets say... I wont want to go alone.

How many hours of security overtime is the point. Get it while you can. No matter what it would have been worse even if nothing ever happens again. Security needs people in fear; trading independence for safety, they lose both.

Well they'd better try something a bit more credible than the usual 'terrorist threat' - most of which are made possible only by some FBI agent serving as a source for the guns, explosives, whatever......  Without such government 'help' most of these terrorists would remain what they are - a bunch of dumbasses mouthing off.

We've had pizza delivery types going to attack an army base, a couple know-nothings planning to blow up the Sears Tower (not knowing anything about explosives and depending on an FBI agent for those materials).

 

Even the supposedly real  alQuaeda terrorists have proven to be singularly inept in their efforts in the US... the 'blowtorch' attack on the Brooklyn Bridge, the notorious underwear and shoe bombers....C'mon guys LIGHTING a FUSE on an airliner?  Your average Boy Scout Pyromaniac is better skilled at setting off explosive devices.  Look at the idiot with the 'car bomb' in Times Square.  A couple bags of fertilizer, some propane and fireworks?  WTF?   This was NOT a viable 'explosive device'.  Nevermind theat the idiot left his keys in the car.   You've got gang-bangers and far right neo fascists better equipped with stolen military ordanance than any  Islamic 'terrorists'.   (Personally, I'd be a lot more worried about a po'd vet coming back from Iraq or Afghanistan, fed up with multiple deployments , friends dead and a pointless decade long losing battle against people who mainly just want ALL foreigners out of THEIR country.

Even the official 9/11 story shows an astounding level of incompetence - only slightly less on the 'terrorist' side than on the part of our FBI and other counter-terror types.  Arabs learning to fly - barely - (but not take off or land) airliners, moutihng off at strip clubs and more. Frankly the conspiracy theorists claiming these guys were part of a false flag op may have a point only because that effort succeeded at all.  Mossad is pretty good at faking out people to use them for their own means - and they make sure they're competent enough to accomplish the planned mission.

 

We've spent TRILLIONS in wars and 'Homeland Security' (a Goebbels phrase if there ever was one) to 'protect' us from a bunch of amateurs that at their best kill fewer Americans than die in car accidents in a year.   And OUR cosrt per terrorist 'kill' is absurd when you calculate out the cost of drones, predatopr missles, smart bombs dropped from stealth aircraft, etc.  Hell, if you took 1/10 of what we spent on these wars and GAVE IT away to Muslims in the Middle East yo'd buy friends for eternity.  Meanwhile we irradiate AMERICANS wiht scanners COngress VOTED AGAINST, grope grandmas and little kids and have soldiers woth submachine guns now seen in US cities - along woith the repeal of posse comitatus and warrantless wiretapping on EVERYBODY.  

Bin Laden 'won' - he got the US to do all he wanted.  If tghey hate us for our freedom, that freedom is gone.  We're shooting gallery targets in Afghanistan (as he wanted, on the jihadists home turf - the graveyard of Empires).  Bush gave him a bonus with Iraq - takiong out a SECULAR leader (whom we'd used as a balance to Iran) and enraging the rest of the Islamic world in a naked grab for oil (and we didn't even get the oil).  The US is bankrupt - in part due to the costs of these endeavors (but more so due to our own incompetence and corruption).

Our own 'leaders' have done more damage to this nation - and revoked more of our rights an liberties  - than ANY foreign threat ever could have done.  James Madison - "When tyranny comes to these shores it will be in the guise of protecting us from a foreign threat."  NO group of 'terrorists - not even a nation like the former Soviet Union ' has the power to overthrow our Republic.  But our political leaders have gone a long way in undoing it.  We are the 21st century's Rome - we've left the Republic behind.  Our Empire is killing us.  We have mercenaries fighting our wars (look at all the south american and african special ops types working for Blackwater - Xe - and others).  The populace are diverted with bread and circuses - oblivious to their debased money that buyas less and less.

When Rome fell, the West entered the Dark Ages - a few centuries of feudal anarchy with most people selling their freedom for a mouthful of food and the hope of some protection from the lawless world surrounding them.

Sounds like you're demanding some kind of false-flag op at this point? 

Sure, I guess it could help with credibility, but it might turn out even MORE disappointing if a couple of our FBI or BATF guys end up locking themselves inside a truck loaded with explosives and getting picked up by a county sheriff.

The risk is so incredibly high that we had to tell you, but not so high that we will tell you to change your actions at all, and certainly not so high that we will tell you what the threat is so you know what to look for.

The Maritime MARSAC level hasn't changed, so I guess the threat isn't by sea.
