Syria War Imminent! Obama NSA Distraction Announced

Breaking news! CNN reports Obama is set to announce Syria has crossed the red line for military intervention by using chemical weapons to kill hundreds of civilians in Syria.

Details are just coming in but the news means the United States will now be launching military action against Syria as Obama has previously promised the use of Chemical weapons in Syria would be a “game changing” red line.

According the the reports from US intelligence officials given just moments ago to congress in a secret closed door meeting, the Syria government has been using Sarin gas.

This report comes on the heels of numerous reports of western intelligence smuggling saran gas and other chemical weapons to the CIA backed Syria rebels which spawned reports the weapons would be used to stage a false flag to justify western military intervention.

The choice to launch military action against Syria will give Obama breathing room and force the media to turn attention on the war instead of digging into the recent NSA spying scandal which is just the latest of scandals the administration has been caught up with in the past several weeks.

Congressman Duncan: IRS Special Agents Are Now Training with Assault Rifles

If it wasn’t enough for you that the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) purchased 60 shotguns for their criminal enforcement unit, what do you think of the IRS training with AR-15 assault riffles at an indoor federal firing range.

In 2010 a purchase order was released by the Department of the Treasury detailing how the IRS purchased 60 shotguns for their criminal enforcement unit.

The solicitation notice released in February of 2010 numbered TIRWR-10-Q-00023 read, “The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) intends to purchase sixty Remington Model 870 Police RAMAC #24587 12 gauge pump-action shotguns for the Criminal Investigation Division. The Remington parkerized shotguns, with fourteen inch barrel, modified choke, Wilson Combat Ghost Ring rear sight and XS4 Contour Bead front sight, Knoxx Reduced Recoil Adjustable Stock, and Speedfeed ribbed black forend, are designated as the only shotguns authorized for IRS duty based on compatibility with IRS existing shotgun inventory, certified armorer and combat training and protocol, maintenance, and parts”.

I asked myself back in 2010, when the news hit, what would the IRS need shotguns for?

Now three years later, special agents of the IRS have been seen training with AR-15 assault riffles.

In fact, durring a visit to a federal firearms training facility, Congressman Jeff Duncan, witnessed eight or nine IRS special agents training with AR-15 assault riffles prompting Duncan to inform the American people that something isn’t right.

Tal Kopan wrote, “While Duncan acknowledges that the IRS has an enforcement division, he questions if that level of firepower is appropriate when they could coordinate operations with other agencies, like the FBI, especially in a time of austerity.

“I think Americans raise eyebrows when you tell them that IRS agents are training with a type of weapon that has stand-off capability. It’s not like they’re carrying a sidearm and they knock on someone’s door and say, ‘You’re evading your taxes,’” Duncan said.

Given the increased scrutiny amid the agency’s targeting of political groups and excessive spending, Duncan said, he intends to seek answers from the IRS.

“We’ll ask the questions and hopefully they can justify it. And if not, we’ll bring them in front of the committee for a hearing and ask the questions on the record,” he said.

In a statement, the IRS defended the training.”

The IRS is primarily an auditing agency and really technically has no jurisdiction in the United States, as the IRS is an unconstitutional foreign corporation based out of Puerto Rico.

An IRS spokesman has told the press that yes indeed the IRS does train with high-power riffles, although the spokesman said that this type training should not be in the budget.

Revealed – Australia’s Own NSA Spy facility

The Defence Department is building a new secret communications facility designed to handle the ‘data deluge’ of electronic intelligence the US shares…

In the quiet Canberra suburb of Harman, abutting the NSW border near Queanbeyan, is the Royal Australian Navy’s communications complex. In the quaint Navy way of naming shore facilities as if they are ships (the phrase is ‘stone frigates’) it is called HMAS Harman.

The Defence Signals Directorate (DSD) will be one of the main tenants in a new data centre being built at HMAS Harman. A number of contracts have been signed, including $11 million with John Holland for the building construction, which still stands empty. The government said in its initial tender documents that the works would be completed by March 2013, and that the total cost of the project would be ‘in the order of’ $135 million’.

The DSD (motto – ‘Reveal their secrets – Protect our own’) is Australia’s equivalent of the US National Security Agency (NSA). That shadowy US body has made headline news this week since whistleblower Ed Snowden disclosed the extent of its spying operations on US citizens – the PRISM electronic surveillance program.

Such domestic and non-military snooping would normally be way beyond its brief, excepting that the all-encompassing powers handed to the US Government under the post-9/11 Patriot Act allow it to do just about anything it wants to do. And when governments are given power, they usually exercise it.

Fairfax Media is reporting unnamed sources as saying that Australia’s intelligence agencies are receiving ‘huge volumes of immensely valuable data” from US intelligence sources, including data gained through the PRISM program.

The report also says that the HMAS Harman facility is 8o% over budget, again quoting unnamed officials. There has been very little public disclosure about the facility, though a trawl through Government tenders and Defence statutory reports give shadowy glimpse of its construction. Google Earth shows the construction site, but when you zoom in too far the image reverts to an earlier version which shows bare dirt before construction commenced.

Greens Senator Scott Ludlam is on the case. “Revelations from within Australia’s intelligence agencies have confirmed the Government is actively complicit in the United States’ surveillance of Australian citizens.

“The Australian Government has denied any knowledge of the NSA’s widespread online surveillance of people around the world since it was revealed by Edward Snowden. It is now clear that the ‘hear no evil, see no evil’ routine is a sham,” said Ludlam.

“The Australian Government was aware of the spying, and collaborating to circumvent due process through receipt of vast amounts of surveillance material from the US.”

Ludlum said he will push for the Government to produce documents to disclose the extent of its involvement.

The news deluge about PRISM this week has caused Wikipedia to update its entry:

PRISM is a clandestine national security electronic surveillance program operated by the US National Security Agency since 2007. PRISM is a government codename for a data collection effort known officially asUS-984XN.

Documents leaked by whistleblower Edward Snowden in June 2013 describe the PRISM program as enabling in-depth surveillance on live communications and stored information. It provides for the targeting of any customers of participating corporations who live outside the US, or American citizens whose communications include web content of people outside the US. Data which the NSA is able to obtain with the PRISM program includes email, video and voice chat, videos, photos, VoIP conversations, file transfers, login notifications and social networking details.

According to the Director of National Intelligence James Clapper, PRISM cannot be used to intentionally target any Americans or anyone in the US. Clapper said a special court, Congress, and the executive branch oversee the program and extensive procedures ensure the acquisition, retention, and dissemination of data accidentally collected about Americans is kept to a minimum. Clapper issued a statement and ‘fact sheet’ to correct what he characterised as ‘significant misimpressions’ in articles by The Washington Post and The Guardian newspapers.

Operation Troll The NSA

If millions of us, all the same time, call or email someone with our keywords-of-terror-filled script, we can give our nation’s impressive surveillance apparatus the kind of test it deserves.

The Troll The NSA website is urging internet users in the
US to take part in action aimed at jamming the NSA’s scanners, following confirmation of previous whistle blower revelations that the NSA and the FBI are conducting a massive and widespread surveillance operation on all Americans.

A screenshot from trollthensa.com

The goal of the operation is for people to overwhelm the NSA’s data-mining scanners by flooding the internet and phone systems with keywords that the feds are likely to be monitoring.

The operations is scheduled to be conducted at 7:00 PM EST on Wednesday,
June 12.

The site is urging people to spread the following message:

Hey! How’s it going? I’m all right.

My job is so shitty I wish could overthrow my boss. It’s like this oppressive regime where only true believers in his management techniques will stay around. I work marathon-length hours and he’s made all these changes that have made it the worst architecture firm to work at in Manhattan. Like he moved the office to the Financial District and fired my assistant. She was the only one who knew where the blueprints were! I need access to those blueprints to complete my job! F my life, right? And he keeps trying to start all these new initiatives to boost revenue, but seriously we just need to stick to what we do best. There’s only one true profit center. I seriously feel ready to go on strike at any second.

I just read this article about how these free radical particles can cause the downfall of good health and accelerate aging. These could actually cause death to millions of Americans. If these particles are flying around undetected everywhere, does that mean we’re all radicalized?

Have you seen the second season of Breaking Bad? I just finished it. I couldn’t believe that episode where they poison the guy with ricin! That was the bomb! I won’t say any more because I don’t want to reveal the earth-shattering events to come.

Oh! So I’ve been planning a big trip for the summer. I’m thinking of visiting all of the most famous suspension bridges in the United States. So probably like the Golden Gate Bridge, The Brooklyn Bridge, and the Verrazano Narrows Bridge. I’m gonna bring my younger brother and I know he’ll want to go to bars, so I’m thinking of getting him a fake drivers license, but I hope that doesn’t blow up in my face.

Okay, I gotta run! I’m late for flight school. I missed the last class where we learn how to land, so I really can’t miss another one. Talk to you later!

The contents of the message can be emailed, read over the phone, or posted online to an internet forum, blog or social networking site, or sent as a private message through a text or chat program.

Additionally, here is the official list of keywords that feds are monitoring online
