Real-time Street View:
The U.S. military spy drone
that can track an entire
city in high definition

Daily Mail (UK), by Damien Gayle

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 1/28/2013 11:01:14 AM

A sinister airborne surveillance camera gives the U.S. military the ability to track movements in an entire city like a real-time Google Street View. The ARGUS-IS array can be mounted on unmanned drones to capture an area of 15 sq/miles in an incredible 1,800MP - that´s 225 times more sensitive than the camera on an iPhone. From 17,500ft the remarkable surveillance system can capture objects as small as 6in on the ground and allows commanders to track movements across an entire battlefield in real time.

Why is everything the US has in our defense system put out there for all to see? How long before those who hate us will have the same type equipment? Remember when Clinton allowed China to have access to some of our military power?

It doesn´t take a rocket scientist to see what is going on right now...

Yesterday they had video of a surface to air missile test that is part of our national security to shoot down missiles that enter our air space, AND now this.

This is the Gov´t way of sending a message, by using the media.

CNN host Jake Tapper’s Interview with the subject of the Mark Wahlberg film Lone Survivor, Marcus Luttrell, became tense on Friday when the veteran of Operation Red Wings apparently took offense at Tapper’s suggestion that the botched mission was a mistake. Luttrell defended his fellow veterans who lost their lives in that operation and asked if Tapper was suggesting that they died “for nothing.” Tapper said that he was struck by the loss of life and the sense of “hopelessness” he felt while watching the film adaptation of that mission. “And I was torn about the message of the film”

Palin: Christie´s ´Bridgegate´ Nothing

Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin said the traffic scandal engulfing Republican New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie was nothing compared to President Barack Obama´s National Security Agency spying scandals or the Benghazi scandal that resulted in the death of four Americans in 2012. “Governor Chris Christie’s scandal is nothing in comparison to what the leadership in the White House has engaged in and covered up,” Palin told Inside Edition on Friday. Unlike Obama, Christie on Thursday ousted two of his top aides responsible for the traffic jam, which he announced in a press conference that lasted nearly two hours. Palin did

The 10 Best Cities For Job Seekers
Forbes, by Susan Adams    Original Article
Posted By: JoniTx- 1/10/2014 9:02:15 PM     Post Reply
Today’s murky jobs report is bad news for job seekers. Though the unemployment rate edged down to 6.7% from 7%, employers added just 74,000 jobs this month, the slowest pace in three years and far below the 200,000 many economists had predicted. Another grim fact: the labor participation rate keeps dropping. That means the percentage of people either working or looking for work is declining, likely because long-term job seekers are giving up. Is there any reason for optimism? If you live in Austin, Washington, D.C., Fort Worth or Denver, or another half dozen cities, the answer is yes, according

JACKSON, Miss. — Larry Speakes, who spent six years as acting press secretary for President Ronald Reagan, died Friday in his native Mississippi. He was 74. Speakes died at home in Cleveland, Miss., where he had lived the past several years, said Bolivar County Coroner Nate Brown. Brown said Speakes had Alzheimer´s disease. "He died in his sleep and it was a natural death," Brown said. Speakes was buried in North Cleveland Cemetery during a private service Friday morning, a few hours after dying, said Kenny Williams of Cleveland Funeral Home. Speakes became Reagan´s acting spokesman after Press Secretary James Brady was

TRENTON — The New Jersey Legislature today released thousands of pages of subpoenaed documents provided to a state Assembly committee investigating the George Washington Bridge scandal. Many of the documents were given to the panel by an attorney for David Wildstein, a former top official of the Port of New Jersey and New Jersey, and include the e-mails that emerged on Wednesday revealing a top aide to Gov. Chris Christie was directly tied to the traffic-clogging closure of local access lanes leading to the bridge in Fort Lee. Democrats have sought for months to link the lane closures to the

Same-sex marriages performed in Utah will be recognized by the federal government, Attorney General Eric Holder announced Friday. Holder´s decision means that the approximately 1,000 same-sex couples married in Utah since December will be eligible for federal tax, estate and other benefits. "These families should not be asked to endure uncertainty regarding their status as the litigation unfolds," Holder declared. "In the days ahead, we will continue to coordinate across the federal government to ensure the timely provision of every federal benefit to which Utah couples and couples throughout the country are entitled, regardless of whether they are in same-sex

Developments in the scandal involving the September closing of toll lanes from Fort Lee, New Jersey onto the George Washington Bridge exploded in a major way Wednesday with the release of emails and texts implicating top deputies to Governor Chris Christie (R-NJ) in a political retribution scheme. The news also presented a challenge for the three cable news networks, which had to make choices about how, and what, to cover. Here’s how the three cable news networks, Fox News, MSNBC, and CNN, handled those choices: (Video clips, charts)

Senate Democrats are prepared to let their proposed Unemployment Insurance extension die instead of even allowing a vote on a Republican amendment that could pay for the benefits, and restore some other cuts to veterans benefits, by ending fraudulent tax credit payments to illegal immigrants. "We´ve done everything Republicans wanted," Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) said Thursday of his decision to schedule a vote on the UI bill Monday, "Now is the time to fish or cut bait." Of course, Reid has not come close to working with Republicans on the issue. Instead, Reid "filled the amendment tree" on the

CHARLESTON, W. Va. – The federal government said Friday it will open an investigation into a West Virginia chemical spill that shut down much of the state´s capital and put 300,000 residents at risk. Schools and restaurants closed, grocery stores sold out of bottled water, and state legislators who had just started their session canceled the day´s business after a chemical spill in the Elk River in Charleston, even as the extent of the danger remained unclear.

SAN FRANCISCO — Buy a pack of cigarettes, and a printed warning from the surgeon general will remind you that smoking causes cancer. Obviously, you’ve chosen to smoke anyway. But maybe one day you’ll look at that message, printed on the pack, and resolve to change your ways. Now, apply that idea to global warming. A group of Bay Area environmentalists wants to slap warning stickers on gasoline pumps, telling drivers that the fuel they’re buying is cooking the planet. The stickers would constantly remind consumers of the link between driving and climate change. “Human beings are not really wired

SAN ANTONIO — Texas Department of Public Safety troopers flew the fancy $7.4 million high-altitude spy plane — equipped with $1 million worth of surveillance cameras — from San Antonio to Fort Stockton Friday, according to a flight tracker. The purchase of the Swiss-made aircraft by DPS flew largely under the radar of media outlets in 2012. But as controversies surrounding drones and the National Security Agency continue to balloon, more focus is being shifted toward government-run spy programs. The plane, purchased from Swiss company Pilatus Aircraft Ltd., is jam-packed with military-style features including high-resolution and thermal imaging surveillance cameras,

He was, he said, heartbroken. Embarrassed. Sad. Disappointed. Humiliated.By the end of an extraordinary and exhaustive 107-minute news conference, Chris Christie had transformed himself from a belligerent chief executive, famed for ridiculing his detractors, into a deeply wronged father figure, shaking his head, whispering his words and verging on tears. The bravado had vanished. The certitude was gone. In its place was an entirely new vocabulary of self-doubt and a once unthinkable spectacle: Governor Christie acknowledging a “crisis in confidence,” sleepless nights, second-guessing and nonstop soul-searching. Political apologies generally follow a robotic sequence. The public figure caught doing wrong offers a terse, often

While honouring Emma Thompson at a dinner for the National Board of Review on Tuesday night, Meryl Streep made an extraordinary speech that criticised Walt Disney for being a "gender bigot" who was a member of an antisemitic lobbying organisation. Streep, perhaps Hollywood´s most respected and beloved actor, showed she is far from a cosy establishment figure as she carefully trod a line between praising Thompson and attacking Disney. The very film Thompson was being celebrated for, Saving Mr Banks, is based around Walt Disney´s persuading of PL Travers to allow him to adapt Mary Poppins. According to Variety´s Ramin Setoodeh,

The Big Three networks, in a frenzy over New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie´s traffic headache dubbed “Bridgegate,” have devoted a whopping 34 minutes and 28 seconds of coverage to the affair in just the last 24 hours. By comparison, that´s 17 times the two minutes, eight seconds devoted to President Obama´s IRS scandal in the last six months, according to an analysis by the Media Research Center. “While routinely burying new stories on the IRS scandal, the media practically fell over themselves to start taking shots at the potential 2016 Republican presidential nominee,” said the conservative media watchdog.

Europe is set to suffer more severe droughts due to climate change and increased water use, scientists have warned. By the end of the century, southern Europe in particular will have 80 per cent more droughts than at present. New research by the European Commission predicts that water shortages will be made worse by population growth and increased demand. Drought can have a serious economic and social impact and is thought to have cost Europe over €100billion (or £83billion) in the past three decades alone. Researchers used computer models to predict which parts of Europe could be worst hit by increasing temperatures and intensive

Butter´s back—and with a creamy vengeance. Foodies extol its flavor. Purists praise its freedom from trans fats. Annual per capita butter consumption in the U.S. (now 5.6 pounds), has risen 25 percent in the last decade to a 40-year high, according to American Butter Institute.
