Mysterious Fake Cellphone Towers
Are Intercepting Calls All Over The US

Business Insider, by Jack Dutton

Original Article

Posted By:NorthernDog, 9/3/2014 9:05:26 PM

Seventeen fake cellphone towers were discovered across the U.S. last week, according to a report in Popular Science. Rather than offering you cellphone service, the towers appear to be connecting to nearby phones, bypassing their encryption, and either tapping calls or reading texts. Les Goldsmith, the CEO of ESD America, used ESD´s CryptoPhone 500 to detect 17 bogus cellphone towers. ESD is a leading American defense and law enforcement technology provider based in Las Vegas. With most phones, these fake communication towers are undetectable. But not for the CryptoPhone 500, a customized Android device that is disguised as a Samsung

Those are Patriot Freedom Towers, which assure our safety against all of those wonderful and peace-loving muslimes our very own US State Department has insisted on bringing into our nation, especially over the past 15 years or so.

Nest we´ll need shot-detecting American Pride towers to assure our safety against all of those wonderful and hardworking folks from south of the border who the Powers that Be insist on allowing into our nation, so as to provide an endless stream of gang warfare, street drugs, and child prostitutes.

while I´ve encountered fake WiFi sites and some hacked local cell repeaters this seems to be a bit of hype.

I can see some low power temp hacks like the skimmers on card readers in hotels and convention centers and the like - but if you are talking about a tower in the picture believe me - there is a paper trail, those things don´t go up by themselves and there is always some NIMBY WiFi Cellular RF illness wacko protesting them even outside of New Effington SD (real place, always wondered what the heck old Effington was like?)

There has to be a few FCC permits, registered with the FAA with GPS location, height and proper lighting - if it is a remote location there is a diesel backup generator or two there will be permits and records for the tank fills - someone pays the bills

You think the NSA applies for permits ?

The word tower may be misleading. Cell antennas are sprouting all over on tall private buildings such as churches who collect rent and don´t ask questions.

They may have heard about stingray and similar devices that act as cell towers for cell phones within a given area, allowing the operator of said device to acquire all sorts of information ... (fits in a suitcase and smaller these days - they don´t look like cell towers).

Tiny Qatar plays outsize
role in US war strategy
Associated Press, by Robert Burns and Adam Schreck    Original Article
Posted By: NorthernDog- 9/16/2014 1:44:08 PM     Post Reply
WASHINGTON — Just miles (kilometers) from where former Guantanamo Bay terror suspects have resettled, American warplanes take off from Qatar´s al-Udeid air base in the global war on extremism. The contrast in images illustrates why tiny but rich Qatar is an intriguing player in what President Barack Obama says will be a long battle to stop and eventually destroy the Islamic State group in Iraq and Syria. Qatar plays an outsize role as a U.S. military partner. It gained public praise from Obama for brokering the controversial deal that freed Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl from Taliban captivity in May in

Large Majority of Americans
Lack Confidence in Obama
Mission to Destroy ISIS, Poll Shows

Nearly 70 percent of Americans say they lack confidence that the U.S. will achieve its goals in fighting the terrorist group ISIS, according to a new NBC News/Wall Street Journal/Annenberg poll. The findings come in the wake of President Barack Obama’s national address announcing new measures to combat the Sunni militants. Pressure is mounting on the U.S. and its allies to cripple the militants, who have waged a brutal campaign across Syria and Iraq. ISIS already has beheaded two American journalists and on Saturday released a video showing the execution of a third Westerner, British aid worker David Haines. The

Costco execs turn tables

When it comes to politics, Costco Wholesale has a well-deserved reputation as a Democratic-leaning corporation. Company co-founders Jim Sinegal and Jeffrey Brotman have hosted President Obama at fundraisers in their lakefront mansions. Costco executives have donated hundreds of thousands of dollars to Democratic candidates and causes over the past decade. But in the key battle for control of the state Senate this year, top Costco brass — miffed at Democrats over a liquor-fee dispute — have essentially switched sides, backing the Republican Party’s efforts to maintain and expand its majority coalition. Employees and executives of the Issaquah-based retailer have donated

Military source: ISIS hostages dispersed
after revelation of Foley rescue mission

After the administration released details of the July mission to rescue journalist James Foley and others in Syria, intelligence suggests ISIS dispersed the remaining hostages to multiple locations, making them harder to locate, a military source told Fox News. In addition, the source added guard forces around the hostages doubled while widely publicized reporting about the scope of new aerial surveillance in the region caused ISIS to change its pattern of behavior on the ground. "Any time you (disclose) very highly sensitive tactical information, you´re giving away your road map if you will, your strategy," said Rep. Michael McCaul, R-Texas,

Second poll shows Republican
up in Georgia Senate race

Republican David Perdue leads Democrat Michelle Nunn in a new independent survey of the Georgia Senate race, the second this week to give him the edge. Perdue takes 45 percent to Nunn’s 41 percent, while libertarian Amanda Swafford takes 6 percent support and another 6 percent remain undecided in the new poll of likely voters, conducted for The Atlanta Journal-Constitution. Another poll out this week, from SurveyUSA, gave Perdue a 3-point lead. Most polling has shown the race tight, though Democrats remain optimistic Nunn can overcome the red lean of the state and Obama’s deep unpopularity there this fall. Nunn

You might have read about how the Islamic State has been using Twitter and other social media platforms to gain power, attention and recruits. Now, though, a suspected Jerusalem-based affiliate of the jihadist group has announced that Twitter employees would be better off dead.

WASHINGTON — Homeland Security officials warned Wednesday they don’t have a full picture of the Americans and Europeans heading to Syria to train with ISIS and therefore can’t stop them from coming into the US. “We don’t have a fulsome picture in all cases,” said Jennifer Lasley, a deputy undersecretary at the Department of Homeland Security. “It does concern us,” added Troy Miller, an acting assistant commissioner with US Customs and Border Protection. House Homeland Security Committee chairman Rep. Michael McCaul (R-Texas) called the situation worrisome. “You don’t know what you don’t know. We only have estimates of how many

Obama’s ISIS plan
appears modest, realistic
Sun-Times [Chicago, IL], by Editorial    Original Article
Posted By: NorthernDog- 9/10/2014 4:38:05 PM     Post Reply
If we’ve learned anything about fighting terrorism in the 13 years since the Sept. 11 attacks, it’s this: Keep the hubris and the expectations in check. (Snip) The goal under President George W. Bush was to bring democracy to the Middle East. Obama wants only to beat back a threat, a far more modest and realistic goal. “The United States has a well-established tendency to overreact and to shoot itself in the foot,” Harvard Professor Stephen M. Walt wrote in a New York Times op-ed last week. “The Bush administration panicked after 9/11 and overthrew Saddam Hussein, at a cost

Free money for everyone! With weak job growth, rising poverty, and the rich continuing to devour nearly all economic growth, it´s an idea that is gaining more credence. Arguments for a universal basic income (UBI) — in which everyone without exception would receive an equal stipend — have flourished in policy-centric areas of the internet, including The Week. Advocates of UBI see it as a blunter, more effective means of reducing poverty and shrinking the inequality gap. But even if UBI proponents are right on the merits, Tyler Cowen argues that the politics of the issue are not favorable. Under

Washington — President Obama’s speech Wednesday on the growing threat from Islamic State militants in Iraq and Syria represents a major test of his leadership. It’s being billed as an address to the nation, but it will reach far beyond that. Mr. Obama will be speaking foremost to the American people –Democrats, Republicans, and independents – in the heat of the midterm campaign. And it comes at a time of heightened sensitivity to terrorism, the eve of the 13th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks, and the second anniversary of the attack on the US mission in Benghazi, Libya. Congress will

Democratic Colorado Sen. Mark Udall said that beheaded journalists Steve Sotloff and James Foley would recommend a cautious approach to fighting ISIS, the terrorist group that killed them. “I can tell you,” Udall said in his re-election debate with Republican Cory Gardner, according to National Review. “Steve Sotloff and James Foley would tell us, don’t be impulsive. Horrible and barbarous as those executions were, don’t be impulsive, come up with a plan to knock ISIL back.”

Former President George W. Bush put together a 48 member coalition for the Iraq War in 2003. 40 of those members supported military operations and 37 provided some number troops. In April 2003, the list was updated to include 49 countries, though it was reduced to 48 after Costa Rica objected to its inclusion. Of the 48 states on the list, three contributed troops to the invasion force (the United Kingdom, Australia and Poland). An additional 37 countries provided some number of troops to support military operations after the invasion was complete. Despite these numbers the liberal media continues to push the lie

President Barack Obama unveiled his plan to tackle the Ebola crisis in West Africa on Tuesday, promising to do far more to tackle the deadly virus he said could result in "hundreds of thousands of people infected" without US intervention. "More than 2,400 men, women, and children are known to have died and we strongly suspect that the actual death toll is higher than that," Obama said in a speech at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in Atlanta, Georgia. "Hospitals, clinics, and the few treatment centers that do exist have been completely overwhelmed." The president was particularly dire

Democrats are now (very slightly) favored to hold the Senate majority on Nov. 4, according to Election Lab, the Post´s statistical model of the 2014 midterm elections. Election Lab puts Democrats´ chances of retaining their majority at 51 percent -- a huge change from even a few months ago when the model predicted that Republicans had a better than 80 percent chance of winning the six seats they need to take control. (Worth noting: When the model showed Republicans as overwhelming favorites, our model builders -- led by George Washington University´s John Sides -- warned that the model could and

First Lady Michelle Obama has made healthy eating and exercise her signature issue. But, a recent study published by the Sage Journal found that her “elitist” advice actually “shames poor and middle class mothers.” The College Fix added that the study found that Michelle Obama’s healthy eating program is also sexist. It’s also sexist, the study’s authors suggest, noting that “intentionally or not, it places the burden of a healthy home-cooked meal on women.” Sage Journals published the study by North Carolina researchers Sarah Bowen, Sinikka Elliott and Joslyn Brenton.
