Before eyes not blinded by a mainstream media controlled by the corporate fascist elite, Orwell’s 1984 nightmare continues to unfold as the powers and reach of the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) are once again extended and codified.
“Introduced Tuesday, the Cybersecurity Act of 2012 [S 2105] would direct the Department of Homeland Security to work in concert with industry members and relevant government agencies to conduct a series of risk assessments and determine which private-sector firms would be deemed to operate “covered critical infrastructure,” a crucial designation that would determine whether a private-sector entity could be subjected to new regulatory oversight.”
“The legislation would codify some of the authority the Obama administration has granted the Department of Homeland Security over federal civilian agency IT security and create the National Center for Cybersecurity and Communications [NCCC] within DHS, headed by a Senate-confirmed director, to coordinate federal efforts to battle cybersecurity threats facing the government and the nation’s critical information infrastructure, the mostly privately owned networks that control the flow of money, energy, food, transportation and other vital resources that the economy needs to function.”
“The Cybersecurity Act of 2012 would have the Department of Homeland Security determine what qualifies as critical infrastructure and require compliance with a set of security standards. The legislation defines as critical infrastructure systems ‘whose disruption from a cyberattack would cause mass death, evacuation, or major damage to the economy, national security, or daily life’.”

Call to Action: Demand that President Obama Veto H.R. 658 And Scrub The DHS Wide Area Aerial Surveillance System (WAASS) It Enables
DEMAND THAT PRESIDENT OBAMA VETO H.R. 658 AND SCRUB THE DHS WIDE AREA AERIAL SURVEILLANCE SYSTEM (WAASS) IT ENABLES
Known to the clueless as the “FAA Modernization and Reform Act of 2012”, but recognized by the concerned as the “Skynet Surveillance Enabling Act of 2012”, H.R. 658 is now hovering at the White House just one corporate fascist puppet presidential signature away from authorizing the filling of America’s skies with as many as 30,000 “1984 Meets Terminator” Big Brother Police State citizen surveillance drones:
We are calling on all Americans to click the “Submit a comment” link for H.R. 658 on this White House Pending Legislation page and demand that President Obama veto H.R. 658 and scrub the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Wide Area Aerial Surveillance System (WAASS) it enables:
As Breach of Oath carries no penalty for our elected officials in Washington, they are understandably more accountable to the global corporate fascist elite and Citizens United Super PACs who fund their campaigns than they are to the people who elect them. Consequently, as with NDAA 2012 Obama will most likely sign the bill regardless of whatever protests are raised. But at least we will have yet another documented instance of his collusion with Congress in the ongoing criminal Seditious Conspiracy that is transforming the American Republic into the Amerikan Reich at an ever-accelerating pace.

MAKE WAY FOR WAASS: H.R.658 ACCELERATES DRONE DEPLOYMENT FOR SURVEILLANCE OF AMERICAN CITIZENS
Perhaps emboldened by the impotence of the ACLU, BORDC, Center for Constitutional Rights, “Oath Keepers” and other toothless rights watchdogs, as well as the inability of the Occupy Movement to break through the corporate-controlled mainstream media blackout of efforts to “Undo NDAA”, yesterday H.R. 658 – euphemistically entitled the “FAA Air Transportation Modernization and Safety Improvement Act” – sailed through the U.S. Senate (75-20-5) and is now headed to the White House where our corporate fascist puppet President Barack Obama is expected to swiftly sign it into law:
As were Sections 1021 and 1022 of the National Defense Authorization Act of 2012 – which despite Obama’s signing statement and other claims to the contrary do in fact codify the indefinite detention without charge or trial of American citizens on American soil – tucked neatly away in H.R. 658 (and likely never read by most of our lobbified legislators) is Section 320, officially summarized as follows:
“Requires the FAA Administrator to: (1) develop plans to accelerate the integration of unmanned aerial systems [drones] into the National Airspace System, and (2) report to Congress on progress made in establishing special use airspace for the DOD to develop detection techniques for small unmanned aerial vehicles and to validate sensor integration and operation of unmanned aerial systems. Directs the DOD Secretary to establish a process to develop certification and flight standards for military unmanned aerial systems at specified test sites.”
With that exposed, a more fitting moniker for H.R.658 might be the “Skynet Surveillance Enabling Act of 2012”. According to USA Today, “Drones, perhaps best known for their combat missions in Afghanistan, are increasingly looking to share room in U.S. skies with passenger planes… Now, organizations from police forces searching for missing persons to academic researchers counting seals on the polar ice cap [are] eager to launch drones.” In more specific and less candy-coated terms, once the Wide Area Aerial Surveillance System – or WAASS (think Skynet) – drone surveillance network enabled by H.R.658 is in place, privacy in real as well as virtual space will become a thing of the past as Big Brother will be able to spy on just about anyone doing just about anything just about anywhere in the United States or elsewhere. As the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) stated:
“The primary objective of WAASS is to provide persistent, long-term surveillance over urban and rural terrain at least the size of 16 km2. The surveillance system shall have an electro-optical capability for daylight missions but can have an infrared capability for day or night operations. The sensor shall integrate with an airborne platform for data gathering. The imagery data shall be displayed at a DHS operations center and have the capability for forensic analysis within 36 hours of the flight.”
And as we previously reported, “Skynet” citizen surveillance has already begun:
Welcome to 1984…

The Terrorism Industrial Complex a.k.a. “Top Secret America” may sound like tin foil hat conspiracy to some, but many of you will remember it as the name of an extensive investigation by the Washington Post, whose editors’ intro says: “[This] is a project nearly two years in the making that describes the huge national security buildup in the United States after the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks… When it comes to national security, all too often no expense is spared and few questions are asked – with the result an enterprise so massive that nobody in government has a full understanding of it. It is, as Dana Priest and William M. Arkin have found, ubiquitous, often inefficient and mostly invisible to the people it is meant to protect and who fund it.”
Short of storming the Beltway, the American people may never learn just how much of their money has been pillaged, plundered and simply wasted in the name of “national security” since 9/11, but our research suggests it could easily be an amount that exceeds not only the billions in bailout bucks given to the Banksters since 2008 but the trillions paid to the War Profiteers since 2001. In fact, just as the money being squandered on militarily useless F-22 and F-35 fighter jets will probably exceed our $1.3 trillion federal deficit (see our previous reports), the often untraceable trillions poured into the post-9/11 “too big to fail”, “war on terrorism”, “homeland security” and “black ops” troughs by our corporate-owned politicians and well-lobbied bureaucrats might easily approximate our $15 trillion national debt.
One of the hundreds of “security contractors” feeding at those troughs is SAIC – formerly Science Applications International Corporation. Headquartered in McLean VA, SAIC is “a Fortune 500 scientific, engineering, and technology applications company working in national security, energy and the environment, critical infrastructure, and health”. The company’s 46,000+ employees serve the Department of Defense (DoD), the intelligence community, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and other federal government agencies. SAIC had revenue of $11.1 billion for its fiscal year 2010.
Since 1995 SAIC has contributed over $3.8 million to political campaigns, split evenly between Democrats and Republicans, with Barack Obama and John McCain being the top recipients. That amount is eclipsed by the more than $24 million they’ve invested in lobbying since 1997. And over that same period, SAIC’s penalties for federal contractor misconduct have far exceeded their pay-to-play payola: SAIC paid a $24.9 million settlement for rigging bids on General Services Administration (GSA) contracts, $5 million to the Air Force for false claims and defective pricing, and all told over $32 million for a dozen different instances of government fraud, ethics and other violations. Of course, all their penalties and payola combined is chump change compared to the more than $63 billion in defense, security and other federal contracts SAIC has bagged over the past ten years.
Apparently its all forgive and forget at the GSA, because just last week they awarded SAIC a $5 billion telecom systems contract – forgiving their history of bid-rigging, and forgetting that the City of New York recently demanded a $600 million refund on the botched and corruption-riddled “CityTime” system that SAIC installed for them.
SAIC will also be getting at least a $90 million bite out of the $4 billion or so that’s been budgeted to relocate the Department of Homeland Security to what was once St. Elizabeths Hospital, an insane asylum. Conceived in the Mad Hatter days of Bush-Cheney, the megabucks DHS relocation boondoggle is yet another fiscal insanity that has continued unaffected by any imagined wave of “Change” in 2008. SAIC’s piece is to implement a “secure and scalable” IT infrastructure.
Why SAIC would be trusted to provide DHS with a “secure” anything for their new 4.5 million square foot Ministry of Truth facility is a mystery to me. After all, it was only a few weeks ago that they acknowledged the theft of tapes containing the confidential personal information of 4.9 million Tricare military beneficiaries that were allegedly sitting in the car of one of their employees.
Anyway… False flag op or not, there can be no debate that since 11 September 2001 trillions of taxpayer dollars have been spent to beat the boogeymen, real or contrived. Has it been worth it? Do you think Americans are “safer” today than we were ten years ago? If so, has any security gained been worth the cost, and the personal privacy and freedoms lost?
