    Bill Clears Path For 30,000 Surveillance Drones Over US In Next Ten Years

    Critics warn military industrial complex pushing US “willy-nilly toward an era of aerial surveillance”

    A bill passed in by Congress this week paves the way for the use of surveillance drones in US skies. The FAA predicts that by 2020 there could be up to 30,000 drones in operation.

    Once signed by president Obama, the FAA Reauthorization Act allows for the FAA to permit the use of drones and develop regulations for testing and licensing by 2015.

    The bill will exponentially speed up and streamline the process by which the FAA authorizes the use of drones by federal, state and local police and other government agencies. Currently, the FAA issues a certificate on a case by case basis.

    The legislation represents the result of a huge push by the military industrial complex to open up US skies to what will become a multi-million dollar business.

    The American Civil Liberties Union warned Monday that the legislation could severely undermine Americans’ privacy.

    “Unfortunately, nothing in the bill would address the very serious privacy issues raised by drone aircraft,” Jay Stanley of the ACLU said. “This bill would push the nation willy-nilly toward an era of aerial surveillance without any steps to protect the traditional privacy that Americans have always enjoyed and expected.”

    PLANNED POLICE STATE

    Dr. Stan Monteith of Radio Liberty Home Page goes over the growing police state in the USA and abroad.

    The growing surveillance in our lives, how we are watched, monitored, listened to, tracked and how the

    "War on Terrorism" is being used as an excuse for a growing web of control over our lives.

    From chipping our animals to chipping us, from plans for suspending the Constitution and putting us in camps for “our protection”

    Is the US government (or its owners) really out to protect us, or could it be the government is more worried about protecting itself from we the people,

    could there be even more to it? Why are our rights being attacked in America? Why is it, that it seems like leadership is more interested

    in doing to us, what they profess “evil terrorists” want done to us? Could they hate our freedom?

    What is the final out come of what is being planned and what will life be like for coming generations?

    Is there a spiritual element to this as well?

    Find out in this exciting video presentation.

    DVD version available from Radio Liberty Home Page with a syllabus full of documentation. 1 Hour

    It really is shocking that so few Americans get upset about something this disturbing. The Police State is here, but most just don't seem to care. It's very sad.

    I'd be more worried about one of those things crashing into me or my home.

    Government wouldn't care, they would say its collateral damage.... they are protecting us you know...but who is to protect us from them.

    If the evil elite that rule us who killed over 1,000,000 people in Iraq who did nothing to us can do that, why would they give a hoot about us...they don't.

    No they're not. And neither are the NDAA cheerleaders.

    Heck with the Patriot Act. I was against the creation of DHS for this exact same reason. It doesn't matter what party is in power. They are going to expand on it.
