The NSA’s Hidden Spy Hubs in Eight U.S. Cities

“The secrets are hidden behind fortified walls in cities across the United States, inside towering, windowless skyscrapers and fortress-like concrete structures that were built to withstand earthquakes and even nuclear attack. Thousands of people pass by the buildings each day and rarely give them a second glance, because their function is not publicly known. They are an integral part of one of the world’s largest telecommunications networks – and they are also linked to a controversial National Security Agency surveillance program.”

Trump Administration Condemns Iran’s Role In Facilitating 9/11 Attacks

“While Iranian officials have moved to downplay the comments and create separation between the Islamic Republic and al Qeada, the Trump administration’s position represents an indictment of the Iranian government’s role in aiding the 9/11 attackers and could complicate new discussions regarding the future of the landmark nuclear deal, which Trump walked away from.”


Air Force Pilot Shortage Grows to Nearly 2,000; Force Tension ‘Significant’

All these kids demanding free college, free job training, glamorous job, etc… just the Air Force alone has 2,000 job opening just for you… for free if you learned enough in the 12 + previous years of free education you sat in class through.

This generation needs to stop watching MSNBC and step up and grasp the baton that every generation before them has done. The race has already started and they are losing time.

WWIII has seemed to be possible for a long time now… there are 3 choices…. win, lose, spend money on a truce for 50-60 years…. so that leaves 2.

The biggest reason for the pilot shortage, in the secretary’s view, “is that we are too small for all the missions that we’re being asked to carry out on behalf of the nation — and as a result, we’re burning out our people.”

“Surge has become the new normal in the United States Air Force, and you can do that for a year, or two years, or maybe even three or four years. But we’re asking — I met someone last week who has just come back from his 17th deployment — 17 deployments,” she continued. “Less than one percent of Americans serve in uniform and protect the rest of us, and they are carrying a very heavy burden. And at some point, families make a decision: that they just can’t keep doing this at this pace, and I think that’s the biggest thing we’re facing, is we’re burning out our people, because we’re too small for what the nation is asking.”

Saudi government allegedly funded a ‘dry run’ for 9/11 | New York Post

Citing FBI documents, the complaint alleges that the Saudi students — Mohammed al-Qudhaeein and Hamdan al-Shalawi — were in fact members of “the Kingdom’s network of agents in the US,” and participated in the terrorist conspiracy.

They had trained at al Qaeda camps in Afghanistan at the same time some of the hijackers were there. And while living in Arizona, they had regular contacts with a Saudi hijacker pilot and a senior al Qaeda leader from Saudi now incarcerated at Gitmo. At least one tried to re-enter the US a month before the attacks as a possible muscle hijacker but was denied admission because he appeared on a terrorist watch list.

Senate to increase surveillance to stop whistle-blowers from telling American citizens they are under constant surveillance.

Speaking at a Washington think tank, Pompeo said: WikiLeaks “walks like a hostile intelligence service and talks like a hostile intelligence service. It has encouraged its followers to find jobs at CIA in order to obtain intelligence. … It is time to call out WikiLeaks for what it really is – a non-state hostile intelligence service often abetted by state actors like Russia.

”WikiLeaks, which espouses what it calls radical transparency, has been a thorn in the side of the U.S. government for nearly a decade.

Are all telephone calls recorded and accessible to the US government?   (well, hell yeah…. because freedom)

Let’s repeat that last part: “no digital communication is secure”, by which he means not that any communication is susceptible to government interception as it happens (although that is true), but far beyond that: all digital communications – meaning telephone calls, emails, online chats and the like – are automatically recorded and stored and accessible to the government after the fact. To describe that is to define what a ubiquitous, limitless Surveillance State is.
