HAPPY NEW YEAR from Waking Up Orwell -
NO NEW YEARS EVE PROGRAM
We want to wish all of our listeners a happy, safe and prosperous 2010.
Our hearts and minds go out a real hero and cvil liberty champion, Michael Bednarik and to his family at this difficult time recovering from a Christmas health emergency. At last report he is doing much better.
We also want to alert listeners to have your caution lights on. Technology security hawks are looking to boost domestic intelligence gathering (ATS, backscatter body scanners) since the Christmas terrorist attacks at airports.
The problem with this scenario is the terrorist boarded and entered US airspace from Amsterdam via Yemen. The terrorist didn't board a domestic US flight. Extra screening of American passengers won't change boarding procedures overseas. The Nigerian only succeeded in making Dick Cheney high on the scent of neo-con prospective contract entitlement.
Cheney and neo-con politicists are so high on the fresh terrorism they are saying things like 9-11 didn't happen on Bush's watch. Please ignore any partisan attempt to get you to surrender any of your few remaining freedoms. Make no fast moves. Everytime you point out that the 9-11 attacks succeeded due to National Security incompetence during the Bush administration, a war criminal loses their power. So keep tellin' the truth.
Among reports of possible psy-ops is a TSA worker in Oakland airport who bears a striking resemblance to Cindy Sheehan. Not her fault. Coincidence? Maybe.
See you soon.
