U.S. Troops Part Of A United Nations Controlled Multinational Force In Iraq

Symbolism: The star represents Sirius sometimes called the Dog Star or Blazing Star which Freemasons use as one of their symbols ( Sirius Satellite Radio!). The two scimitars are Shriner symbols . The Wheat symbolize’s corn used in the masonic corn, wine and oil ceremonies. The colossal statue of the Mesopotamian human-headed winged bull recalls the Babylonian Empire.

Multi-National Force – Iraq (MNF-I) replaced Combined Joint Task Force 7 on May 15, 2004. The land forces component of United States Central Command that carried out the initial invasion of Iraq, designated the Coalition Forces Land Component Command, was established by Commander, US Army Forces Central Command, in 2002 – 2003, to oversee two corps-sized organizations, I Marine Expeditionary Force and V Corps. These two corps-level formations carried out Operation Iraqi Freedom (the U.S. military term) which began on 20 March 2003. Coalition Forces Land Component Command was replaced by Combined Joint Task Force 7 on 14 June 2003.

In its turn, CJTF 7 was replaced by Multinational Force Iraq on May 15, 2004. Multinational Force Iraq was established to handle strategic level issues while Multi-National Corps Iraq (MNC-I) directed the tactical battle. General David H. Petraeus serves as Commanding General. As of mid 2006, the 1st Corps Support Command based at Logistics Support Area Anaconda at Balad, Iraq, was providing theatre logistics support.

Symbolism: The Lion symbolizes a Egyptian Sphinx. The Freemasons use the Sphinx as one of their symbols. The Wheat once again symbolize corn used in the Masonic corn, wine and oil ceremony. The Arrow remains a mystery at this point.

Multi-National Corps – Iraq
, part of Multi-National Force – Iraq, is the tactical unit responsible for command and control of operations throughout Iraq.
Iraq is divided into 6 major areas of responsibility maintained by forces from 26 countries.
MNC-I is headquartered by the U.S. Army at Camp Victory, Baghdad.

The other points I want to make is does either of these two symbols look American to you? The United Nations led by a Satanic religion the Freemasons is controlling the war in Iraq from the start in March of 2003 to the present. Iraq will never be a free nation because the plan is to divide Iraq into regions. Iraq’s entire government has been appointed. They were not elected. The rules of engagement for U.S. forces in Iraq was not created by the U.S. government. The United Nations made those also. 3,897 U.S. troops have died because of George Bush’s decision to invade Iraq. More American deaths than the September 11th, 2001 attacks.



Pyramid In Memphis, TN Is Masonic Display Of Control And Power In America

The Pyramid Arena in Memphis Tennessee is one of the most uniquely designed structures on earth. The 32 story Pyramid ( 32 degrees in York Rite Masonry) is the third largest pyramid in the world and soars even taller than the Statue of Liberty or the Taj Mahal. Managed and operated by SMG, this 21,000 seat sports and entertainment facility is home to the NBA Memphis Grizzlies and the University of Memphis Men’s Basketball Program and is well known for hosting national basketball tournaments, concerts and family shows.

Here are a few quick facts about The Pyramid Arena:

  • On the bank of the Mighty Mississippi River, the arena is housed inside a 32 story stainless steel pyramid, paying homage to the Memphis’ namesake – Memphis on the Nile River.
  • This giant pyramid has more than a half million square feet of usable space inside.
  • With a footprint larger than six football fields, The Pyramid’s base covers 360,000 square feet.
  • Seating capacity is approximately 21,000 for concerts and just over 20,000 for basketball.
  • Twenty-six lower level luxury suites are located on the plaza concourse.
  • Two additional suites are designed for disabled patron. Disabled seating is also available on all three levels of The Pyramid.
  • The Pyramid Gallery of Stars is an informal gathering area on the East Mezzanine, featuring super-size photos of the biggest stars in sports and entertainment. All of the photos were taken from past Pyramid events. The Gallery area also features additional restrooms and concessions.
  • The backstage areas include 10 dressing rooms, four locker rooms, a media work room, interview room, show production office and green room.
  • The giant center hung scoreboard has the latest state-of-the-art LED video display board technology. The entire system features full video production capabilities; four center-hung 12-foot by 10-foot replay boards and 24 concession stand monitors.

History Of Memphis, TN:

Lush wilderness covered the Mississippi River bluffs (now known as the Memphis metropolitan area) when Spanish explorer Hernando De Soto encountered the area’s Chickasaw inhabitants in 1541. In 1673, French explorers Louis Joliet and Jacques Marquette explored the region, called the Fourth Chickasaw Bluffs, which in 1682 was claimed for France by Robert Cavelier de La Salle as part of the vast Louisiana Territory. The French established Fort Assumption at the Fourth Chickasaw Bluffs in 1739. As ownership of the region was disputed by various nations, Fort Assumption was followed by the Spanish Fort San Fernando, built on the site in 1795, and the American Fort Adams, erected in 1797. The Chickasaw ceded West Tennessee to the United States in 1818, and the following year John Overton, James Winchester, and Andrew Jackson founded a settlement on the Mississippi River bluffs that they named Memphis, after an ancient Egyptian city on the Nile River.

This was no coincidence that they named the city after a ancient Egyptian city that was actually called Memphis located on the Nile river. John Overton, James Winchester and Andrew Jackson were all known Freemasons. And Freemasons use the Egyptian culture in their Satanic religion heavily. In Fact the more a person learns about the Ancient Egyptians the more a person can understand the Freemasons secrets and way of thinking. This is why the Pyramid in Memphis was built to display the power and control Freemasons have over the American government and the American people are still in the dark about the powerful secret society that rules this country despite all the evidence around them in plain site. Freemasonry must be exposed!

Nazi Connections To Flouride In America’s Drinking Water

“Tell a lie loud enough and long enough and people will believe it.”

– Adolf Hitler

“Fluoridation is the greatest case of scientific fraud of this century.”

– Robert Carlton, Ph.D, former EPA scientist, 1992

The history of forcing fluoride on humans through the fluoridation of drinking water is wrought with lies, greed and deception. Governments that add fluoride to drinking water supplies insist that it is safe, beneficial and necessary, however, scientific evidence shows that fluoride is not safe to ingest and areas that fluoridate their drinking water supplies have higher rates of cavities, cancer, dental fluorosis, osteoporosis and other health problems. Because of the push from the aluminum industry, pharmaceutical companies and weapons manufacturers, fluoride continues to be added to water supplies all over North America and due to recent legal actions against water companies that fluoridate drinking water supplies, precedent has been set that will make it impossible for suits to be filed against water suppliers that fluoridate. There is a growing resistance against adding toxic fluoride to our water supplies, but unfortunately, because fluoride has become “the lifeblood of the modern industrial economy”(Bryson 2004), there is too much money at stake for those who endorse water fluoridation . The lies of the benefits of water fluoridation will continue to be fed to the public, not to encourage health benefits to a large number of people, but to profit the military-industrial complex.

The story begins in 1924, when Interessen Gemeinschaft Farben (I.G. Farben), a German chemical manufacturing company, began receiving loans from American bankers, gradually leading to the creation of the huge I.G. Farben cartel. In 1928 Henry Ford and American Standard Oil Company (The Rockefellers) merged their assets with I.G. Farben, and by the early thirties, there were more than a hundred American corporations which had subsidiaries and co-operative understandings in Germany. The I.G. Farben assets in America were controlled by a holding Company, American I.G. Farben, which listed on it’s board of directors: Edsel Ford, President of the Ford Motor Company, Chas. E. Mitchell, President of Rockerfeller’s National City Bank of New York, Walter Teagle, President of Standard Oil New York, Paul Warburg, Chairman of the federal reserve and brother of Max Warburg, financier of Germany’s War effort, Herman Metz, a director of the Bank of Manhattan, controlled by the Warburgs, and a number of other members, three of which were tried and convicted as German war criminals for their crimes against humanity. In 1939 under the Alted agreement, the American Aluminum Company (ALCOA), then the worlds largest producer of sodium fluoride, and the Dow Chemical Company transferred its technology to Germany. Colgate, Kellogg, Dupont and many other companies eventually signed cartel agreements with I.G. Farben, creating a powerful lobby group accurately dubbed “the fluoride mafia”(Stephen 1995).

At the end of World War II, the US government sent Charles Eliot Perkins, a research worker in chemistry, biochemistry, physiology and pathology, to take charge of the vast Farben chemical plants in Germany. The German chemists told Perkins of a scheme which they had devised during the war and had been adapted by the German General Staff. The German chemists explained of their attempt to control the population in any given area through the mass medication of drinking water with sodium fluoride, a tactic used in German and Russian prisoner of war camps to make the prisoners “stupid and docile”(Stephen 1995). Farben had developed plans during the war to fluoridate the occupied countries because it was found that fluoridation caused slight damage to a specific part of the brain, making it more difficult for the person affected to defend his freedom and causing the individual to become more docile towards authority. Fluoride remains one of the strongest anti-psychotic substances known, and is contained in twenty-five percent of the major tranquilizers. It may not seem surprising that Hitler’s regime practiced the concept of mind control through chemical means, but the American military continued Nazi research, exploring techniques to incapacitate an enemy or medicate an entire nation. As stated in the Rockerfeller Report, a Presidential briefing on CIA activities, “the drug program was part of a much larger CIA program to study possible means of controlling human behavior”(Stephen 1995).

The ‘dental caries prevention myth’ associated with fluoride, originated in the United States in 1939, when a scientist named Gerald J. Cox, employed by ALCOA, the largest producer of toxic fluoride waste and at the time being threatened by fluoride damage claims, fluoridated some lab rats, concluded that fluoride reduced cavities and claimed that it should be added to the nation’s water supplies. In 1947, Oscar R. Ewing, a long time ALCOA lawyer, was appointed head of the Federal Security Agency , a position that placed him in charge of the Public Health Service(PHS). Over the next three years, eighty-seven new American cities began fluoridating their water, including the control city in a water fluoridation study in Michigan, thus eliminating the most scientifically objective test of safety and benefit before it was ever completed.

American ‘education and research’ was funded by the Aluminum Manufacturing, Fertilizer and Weapons Industry looking for an outlet for the increasingly mounting fluoride industrial waste while attaining positive profit increase. The ‘discovery’ that fluoride benefited teeth, was paid for by industry that needed to be able to defend “lawsuits from workers and communities poisoned by industrial fluoride emissions” (Bryson 1995) and turn a liability into an asset. Fluoride, a waste constituent in the manufacturing processes of explosives, fertilizers and other ‘necessities’, was expensive to dispose of properly and until a ‘use’ was found for it in America’s water supplies, the substance was only considered a toxic, hazardous waste. Through sly public re-education, fluoride, once a waste product, became the active ingredient in fluorinated pesticides, fungicides, rodenticides, anesthetics, tranquilizers, fluorinated pharmaceuticals, and a number of industrial and domestic products, fluorinated dental gels, rinses and toothpastes. Fluoride is so much a part of a multibillion-dollar industrial and pharmaceutical income, that any withdrawal of support from pro-fluoridationists is financially impossible, legally unthinkable and potentially devastating for their career and reputation.

Funded by US industrialists, in an attempt to encourage public acceptance of fluoride, Edward Bernays, known also as the father of PR, or the original spin doctor, began a campaign of deception to persuade public opinion. Barnays explained “you can get practically any idea accepted if doctors are in favour. The public is willing to accept it because a doctor is an authority to most people, regardless of how much he knows or doesn’t know”(Bryson 2004). Doctors who endorsed fluoridation didn’t know that research discrediting fluoride’s safety was either suppressed or not conducted in the first place. Fluoride became equated with scientific progress and since it was introduced to the public as a health-enhancing substance, added to the environment for the children’s sake, those opposing fluoride were dismissed as cranks, quacks and lunatics. Fluoride became impervious to criticism because of a relentless PR offensive, but also because of it’s overall toxicity. Unlike chemicals that have a signature effect, fluoride, a systemic poison, produces a range of health problems, so it’s effects are more difficult to diagnose.

Recently declassified US Military documents such as Manhattan Project, shows how Fluoride is the key chemical in atomic bomb production and millions of tonnes of it were needed for the manufacture of bomb-grade uranium and plutonium. Fluoride poisoning, not radiation poisoning, emerged as the leading chemical health hazard for both workers and nearby communities. A-bomb scientists were ordered to provide evidence useful for defense in litigation, so they began secretly testing fluoride on unsuspecting hospital patients and indignant, mentally retarded children.. “The August 1948 Journal of the American Dental Association shows that evidence of adverse effects from fluoride was censored by the US Atomic Energy Commission for reasons of “national security” (Griffiths 1998). The only report released stated that fluoride was safe for humans in small doses.

During the Cold War, Dr. Harold C. Hodge, who had been the toxicologist for the US Army Manhattan Project, was the leading scientific promoter of water fluoridation. While Dr. Hodge was reassuring congress of the safety of water fluoridation, he was covertly conducting one of the nation’s first public water fluoridation experiments in Newburgh, New York, secretly studying biological samples from Newburgh citizens at his US laboratory at the University of Rochester. Since there are no legal constraints against the suppression of scientific data, the only published conclusion resulting from these experiments was that fluoride was safe in low doses, a profoundly helpful verdict for the US Military who feared lawsuits for fluoride injury from workers in nuclear power plants and munitions factories. Fluoride pollution was one of the biggest legal worries facing key US industrial sectors during the cold war. A secret group of corporate attorneys, known as the Fluorine Lawyers Committee, whose members included US Steel, ALCOA, Kaiser Aluminum, and Reynolds Metals, commissioned research at the Kettering Laboratory at the University of Cincinnati to “provide ammunition”(Bryson 2004) for those corporations who were fighting a wave of citizen claims for fluoride injury. The Fluorine Lawyers Committee and their medical ambassadors were in personal and frequent contact with the senior officials of the federal National Institute for Dental Research, and have been implied in the ‘burying’ of the forty year old Kettering study, which showed that fluoride poisoned the lungs and lymph nodes in laboratory animals. Private interests, sought to destroy careers and censor information by ensuring that scientific studies raising doubts about the safety of fluoride never got funded, and if they did, never got published.

During the 1990’s, research conducted by Harvard toxicologist Phillis Mullenix showed that fluoride in water may lead to lower IQ’s, and produced symptoms in rats strongly resembling attention deficit and hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). Just days before her research was accepted for publication, Mullenix was fired as the head of toxicology at the Forsyth Dental Center in Boston. Then her application for a grant to continue her fluoride and central nervous system research was turned down by the US National Institute of Health (NIH), when an NIH panel told her that “fluoride does not have central nervous system effects”(Griffiths 1998).

Despite growing evidence that it is harmful to public health, US federal and state public health agencies and large dental and medical organizations such as the American Dental Association (ADA), continue to promote fluoride. Water fluoridation continues, despite the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA)’s own scientists, whose union, Chapter 280 of the National Treasury Employees Union, has taken a strong stand against it. Dr. William Hirzy, vice president of Chapter 280, stated that “fluoride (that is added to municipal water) is a hazardous waste product for which there is substantial evidence of adverse health effects and, contrary to public perception, virtually no evidence of significant benefits”( Mullenix 1998). Although fluoride is up to fifty times more toxic than sulfur dioxide, it is still not regulated as an air pollutant by the American Clean Air Act. Since thousands of tonnes of industrial fluoride waste is poured into drinking water supplies all over North America, supposedly to encourage gleaming smiles in our children, big industry in the US has the benefit of emitting as much fluoride waste into the environment as they like with absolutely no requirement to measure emissions and no way of being held accountable for poisoning people, animals and vegetation.

In August 2003, the EPA requested that the National Research Council, the research arm of the National Academy of Sciences (NAS), re-evaluate water fluoride safety standards by reviewing recent scientific literature, because the last review in 1993 had major gaps in research. “Neither the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA), nor the National Institute for Dental Research (NIDR), nor the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry has any proof on fluoride’s safety or effectiveness”(Sterling 1993). The International Academy of Oral Medicine and Toxicology has classified fluoride as an unapproved dental medicament due to it’s high toxicity and the US National Cancer Institute Toxicological Program has found fluoride to be an “equivocal carcinogen” (Maurer 1990).

Currently the US government is continuing to introduce further fluoridation schemes throughout the country, including the Water Act passed in November 2003, which has made it impossible for water companies to undergo civil or criminal hearings as a result of adding fluoride to public water supplies.

In a society where products containing asbestos, lead, beryllium and many other carcinogens have been recalled from the marketplace, it is surprising that fluoride is embraced so thoroughly and blindly. It seems absurd that we would consider paying the chemical industry to dispose of their toxic waste by adding it to our water supply. Hiding the hazards of fluoride pollution from the public is a capitalist-style con job of epic proportions that has occurred because a powerful lobby wishes to manipulate public opinion in order to protect it’s own financial interests. “Those who manipulate this unseen mechanism of society constitute an invisible government which is the true ruling power of our country… our minds are molded, our tastes formed, our ideas suggested, largely by men we have never heard of” (Bernays 1991).

Most Countries Reject Water Fluoridation
Statements from European and other Health, Water, & Environment
Authorities on Water Fluoridation
“Toxic fluorides have never been added to the public water supplies in Austria.” (M. Eisenhut, Head of Water
Department, Osterreichische Yereinigung fur das Gas-und Wasserfach Schubertring 14, A-1015 Wien, Austria,
February 17, 2000).
“This water treatment has never been of use in Belgium and will never be (we hope so) into the future. The main reason for that is the fundamental position of the drinking water sector that it is not its task to deliver medicinal treatment to people. This is the sole responsibility of health services.” (Chr. Legros, Directeur,
Belgaqua, Brussels, Belgium, February 28, 2000).
Fluoridation is banned: “not allowed”
Naturally high fluoride levels in water are a serious problem in China.
“Bartram said there were many other ‘silent threats,’ including excessive fluoride in the water supply in China, India and the Rift Valley in Africa. In China alone, 30 million people suffer crippling skeletal fluorosis.” (Jamie
Bartram, Coordinator of the WHO’s Water, Sanitation and Health Program, March 22, 2002)
The Chinese government now considers any water supply containing over 1 ppm fluoride a risk for skeletal fluorosis. (Bo Z, et al. (2003). Distribution and risk assessment of fluoride in drinking water in the West Plain region of Jilin Province, China. Environmental Geochemistry and Health 25: 421-431.)
In China, the World Health Organization has estimated that 2.7 million people have the crippling form of skeletal fluorosis.
Czech Republic:
“Since 1993, drinking water has not been treated with fluoride in public water supplies throughout the Czech Republic. Although fluoridation of drinking water has not actually been proscribed it is not under consideration
because this form of supplementation is considered:
· uneconomical (only 0.54% of water suitable for drinking is used as such; the remainder is employed for hygiene etc. Furthermore, an increasing amount of consumers (particularly children) are using bottled water for drinking (underground water usually with fluor)
· unecological (environmental load by a foreign substance)
· unethical (“forced medication”)
· toxicologically and physiologically debateable (fluoridation represents an untargeted form of
supplementation which disregards actual individual intake and requirements and may lead to excessive healththreatening intake in certain population groups; [and] complexation of fluor in water into non biological active forms of fluor.” (Dr. B. Havlik, Ministerstvo Zdravotnictvi Ceske Republiky, October 14, 1999).
“We are pleased to inform you that according to the Danish Ministry of Environment and Energy, toxic fluorides have never been added to the public water supplies. Consequently, no Danish city has ever been fluoridated.” (Klaus Werner, Royal Danish Embassy, Washington DC, December 22, 1999).

“We do not favor or recommend fluoridation of drinking water. There are better ways of providing the fluoride our teeth need.” (Paavo Poteri, Acting Managing Director, Helsinki Water, Finland, February 7, 2000).
“Artificial fluoridation of drinking water supplies has been practiced in Finland only in one town, Kuopio, situated in eastern Finland and with a population of about 80,000 people (1.6% of the Finnish population).
Fluoridation started in 1959 and finished in 1992 as a result of the resistance of local population. The most usual grounds for the resistance presented in this context were an individual’s right to drinking water without additional chemicals used for the medication of limited population groups. A concept of “force-feeding” was also mentioned.
Drinking water fluoridation is not prohibited in Finland but no municipalities have turned out to be willing to practice it. Water suppliers, naturally, have always been against dosing of fluoride chemicals into water.”
(Leena Hiisvirta, M.Sc., Chief Engineer, Ministry of Social Affairs and Health, Finland, January 12, 1996.)
“Fluoride chemicals are not included in the list [of ‘chemicals for drinking water treatment’]. This is due to ethical as well as medical considerations.” (Louis Sanchez, Directeur de la Protection de l’Environment, August 25, 2000).
“Generally, in Germany fluoridation of drinking water is forbidden. The relevant German law allows exceptions to the fluoridation ban on application. The argumentation of the Federal Ministry of Health against a general permission of fluoridation of drinking water is the problematic nature of compuls[ory] medication.” (Gerda Hankel-Khan, Embassy of Federal Republic of Germany, September 16, 1999).
Stopped fluoridating for technical reasons in the 1960s. However, despite technological advances, Hungary has chosen to remain unfluoridated.
Naturally high levels of fluorides in groundwater have affected at least tens of millions with skeletal fluorosis, often resulting in crippling skeletal fluorosis. The Indian government has been working to remove the fluorides from drinking water sources to alleviate this crisis. In India, 17 of its 32 states have been identified as “endemic” areas, with an estimated 66 million people at risk from crippling skeletal fluorosis and 6 million people seriously afflicted.
Recently suspended mandatory fluoridation until the issue is reexamined from all aspects: medical, environmental, ethical and legal. “From our experience in Israel and the world when the fluoride issue is studied from all aspects it is rejected.” (Representative Shimon Tsuk, Israeli Parliament)
June 21, 2006: The labor, welfare and health Knesset (Israeli Parliament) committee called on the ministry of health to freeze the extension of the fluoridation of drinking water in Israel and to study the issue in depth in order to determine whether to continue with the project or to cancel it completely. Conclusions are to be expected within a year. Until then, municipalities and Mekorot (Israel national water company) are not required to build new fluoride installations.
Committee Chairman MK (Member of Knesset) Moshe Sharoni and MKs Ran Cohen and David Tal claimed during the investigation that the potential damage to public health and environment from fluoridation may be greater than the benefits from decreased dental cavities.

Rejected fluoridation: “…may cause health problems….” The 0.8 -1.5 mg regulated level is for calciumfluoride, not the hazardous waste by-product which is added with artificial fluoridation.
“Fluoride has never been added to the public water supplies in Luxembourg. In our views, the drinking water isn’t the suitable way for medicinal treatment and that people needing an addition of fluoride can decide by their own to use the most appropriate way, like the intake of fluoride tablets, to cover their [daily] needs.” (Jean-
Marie RIES, Head, Water Department, Administration De L’Environment, May 3, 2000).
“From the end of the 1960s until the beginning of the 1970s drinking water in various places in the Netherlands was fluoridated to prevent caries. However, in its judgement of 22 June 1973 in case No. 10683 (Budding and co. versus the City of Amsterdam) the Supreme Court (Hoge Road) ruled there was no legal basis for fluoridation. After that judgement, amendment to the Water Supply Act was prepared to provide a legal basis for fluoridation. During the process it became clear that there was not enough support from Parlement [sic] for
this amendment and the proposal was withdrawn.” (Wilfred Reinhold, Legal Advisor, Directorate Drinking Water, Netherlands, January 15, 2000).
Northern Ireland:
“The water supply in Northern Ireland has never been artificially fluoridated except in 2 small localities where fluoride was added to the water for about 30 years up to last year. Fluoridation ceased at these locations for operational reasons. At this time, there are no plans to commence fluoridation of water supplies in Northern Ireland.” (C.J. Grimes, Department for Regional Development, Belfast, November 6, 2000).
“In Norway we had a rather intense discussion on this subject some 20 years ago, and the conclusion was that drinking water should not be fluoridated.” (Truls Krogh & Toril Hofshagen, Folkehelsa Statens institutt for folkeheise (National Institute of Public Health) Oslo, Norway, March 1, 2000).
In November 2004, after months of consultation, Scotland – which had been unfluoridated – rejected plans to add fluoride to the nation’s water.
“Drinking water fluoridation is not allowed in Sweden…New scientific documentation or changes in dental health situation that could alter the conclusions of the Commission have not been shown.” (Gunnar Guzikowski,
Chief Government Inspector, Livsmedels Verket — National Food Administration Drinking Water Division, Sweden, February 28, 2000).
In April 9, 2003, the City Parliament of Basel, Switzerland voted 73 to 23 to stop Basel’s 41 year water fluoridation program. Basel was the only city in Switzerland to fluoridate its water, and the only city in continental western Europe, outside of a few areas in Spain.


The Fluoride Deception


Bingen, WA September 24, 2007 — Insitu, Inc., a pioneer developer of long-range,

autonomous unmanned aircraft systems (UAS) and advanced tools for intelligence,
surveillance, and reconnaissance (ISR), announced today that it recently became the
first unmanned aircraft (UA) company to provide operator training to Federal Aviation
Administration (FAA) officials. Insitu’s instruction plays a critical role to further educate
FAA representatives on the importance of integrating unmanned aircraft into U.S.
national airspace.

Two FAA inspectors from the Flight Technology and Procedures Division completed a
comprehensive training program leading to operator certification on Insitu’s INSIGHT™
UAS, a platform designed for a variety of commercial applications. The cooperative
effort between Insitu and the FAA was designed to provide the inspectors with baseline
knowledge and skill that would facilitate eventual development of operation and
certification rules for unmanned aircraft.

“Our Insight UAS is known for its superior performance and versatile capabilities,”
remarked Paul McDuffee, Insitu Vice President of Flight Operations and Training. The
instruction Insitu provided to the FAA inspectors helped demonstrate our platform’s
seasoned maturity level and its previously unknown capabilities regarding safe
application within the national airspace system (NAS).”

Insitu’s four week program was conducted in two phases that included systems training
using a control station simulator in Washington D.C. in the FAA offices at L’Enfant
Plaza. In addition the FAA inspectors came to Insitu headquarters and conducted
actual flights using the Insight platform.

“The opportunity to gain hands-on experience with a system like Insitu’s Insight will help
us move forward in the development of rules that will hopefully allow unmanned aircraft
safe access to our NAS,” commented one FAA inspector.

Insitu’s Insight class of vehicles also includes the military ScanEagle®, developed in
partnership with Boeing, and the commercial Fugro GeoRanger™. Insitu’s unmanned
aircraft systems have achieved more than 50,000 hours of operational experience since

Navy Base In Cornado ,Ca Is In Shape Of A Swastika

SWASTIKA?: The buildings, constructed in the 1960s, are on the Coronado amphibious
base and serve as a barracks for Seabees. From the ground, or even adjoining buildings,
the configuration cannot be seen. Nor are there any civilian or military landing patterns
that provide such a view. But Google Earth shows the shape clearly.

Ground level isn’t a problem but aerial views of the Coronado site spark outrage.

By Tony Perry, Los Angeles Times Staff Writer
September 26, 2007,1,96691.story?ctrack=1&cset=true (Must register to LA Times to view original article–it’s free)

CORONADO, Calif., — The U.S. Navy has decided to spend as much as $600,000 for landscaping and architectural modifications to obscure the fact that one its building complexes looks like a swastika from the air.

The four L-shaped buildings, constructed in the late 1960s, are part of the amphibious base at Coronado and serve as barracks for Seabees.

From the ground and from inside nearby buildings, the controversial shape cannot be seen. Nor are there any civilian or military landing patterns that provide such a view to airline passengers.

But once people began looking at satellite images from Google Earth, they started commenting about on blogs and websites about how much the buildings resembled the symbol used by the Nazis.

When contacted by a Missouri-based radio talk-show host last year, Navy officials gave no indication they would make changes.

But early this year, the issue was quietly taken up by Morris Casuto, the Anti-Defamation League’s regional director in San Diego, and U.S. Rep. Susan Davis (D-San Diego).

As a result, in the fiscal year that begins Oct. 1, the Navy has budgeted up to $600,000 for changes in walkways, “camouflage” landscaping and rooftop photovoltaic cells.

The goal is to mask the shape. “We don’t want to be associated with something as symbolic and hateful as a swastika,” said Scott Sutherland, deputy public affairs officer for Navy Region Southwest, the command that is responsible for maintaining buildings on local bases.

The collection of L-shaped buildings is at the corner of Tulagi and Bougainville roads, named after World War II battles.

Navy officials say the shape of the buildings, designed by local architect John Mock, was not noted until after the groundbreaking in 1967 — and since it was not visible from the ground, a decision was made not to make any changes.

It is unclear who first noticed the shape on Google Earth. But one of the first and loudest advocates demanding a change was Dave vonKleist, host of a Missouri-based radio-talk show, The Power Hour, and a website,

In spring 2006, he began writing military officials, including then-Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld, calling for action.

That August, he received a response from officials in Coronado, who made no promise to take action and said, “The Navy intends to continue the use of the buildings as long as they remain adequate for the needs of the service.”

In December, the now-defunct San Diego Jewish Times wrote about the buildings and the controversy.

Soon Casuto and Davis got involved.

Casuto began an on-and-off dialogue with the chief of staff to Rear Adm. Len Hering, commander of Region Southwest. He said that several members of the Jewish community had complained to him.

“I don’t ascribe any intentionally evil motives to this,” Casuto said, referring to the design. “It just happened. The Navy has been very good about recognizing the problem. The issue is over.”

Davis, who is Jewish, is also pleased with the Navy’s decision.

During a discussion with military officials on other issues, Davis had mentioned the Coronado buildings and suggested that rooftop photovoltaic arrays might help change the overhead look. The base gets 3% of its power from solar energy and has been looking to increase that percentage.

Reached in Versailles, Mo., vonKleist, the talk-show host, said he was ecstatic.

“I’m concerned about symbolism,” he said. “This is not the type of message America needs to be sending to the world.”

Senate Slams 2nd Amendment By Passing Veterans Disarmament Act H.R. 2640

December 20, 2007

The US Congress has approved the first major gun control legislation in more than a decade, broadening background checks for gun buyers in the wake of a deadly campus shooting earlier this year by a mentally ill student.

The legislation approved Wednesday by the Senate provides government funds to improve the National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS), the main way gun purchases are monitored in America.

It also allocates funds for gun owners and potential gun owners who are prevented from owning weapons due to mental illness so that they may challenge the ruling in court.

Existing laws prevent mentally ill people and convicted felons from legally owning firearms, but many states lack the funds to keep their information up to date and report it to the NICS.

The measure, the first gun legislation approved since 1994, passed by voice vote in both the Senate and House of Representatives.

“A credible… federal database to provide accurate background checks benefits everyone,” said Senator Patrick Leahy, one of the co-sponsors of a bill that arose following the deadliest campus shooting in US history.

Improving the background check system and culling erroneous records “will help curb the number of firearms that get into the hands of troubled individuals,” Leahy said.

In April, a mentally deranged gunman shot and killed 31 people and then himself at Virginia Tech university in the United States, sparking widespread calls for tighter gun control laws.

The shooter, South Korea-born Seung Hui-Cho, 23, an English major, bought two handguns even after police and professors recognized that he was mentally disturbed.

The campus shooting “made it clear” that the background check system for potential gun buyers “needs to have better information, better technology, and clearer standards,” said Representative John Dingell, a Democrat who co-authored the bill that passed the House in June.

The measure, which added a number of changes after the House version passed, was supported by the powerful gun lobby, the National Rifle Association (NRA), and now awaits President George W. Bush’s signature to become law.

“The end product is a win for American gun owners,” the NRA said in a statement, describing the measure as “pro-gun legislation.”

A number of safeguards were built into the legislation so that people who have “overcome a disqualifying mental illness or disability may reclaim their rights” of gun ownership through federal “relief from disabilities programs.”

The NRA pointed out that the bill “prevents use of federal ‘adjudications’ that consist only of medical diagnoses without findings that the people involved are dangerous or mentally incompetent.

“This would ensure that purely medical records are never used in NICS. Gun ownership rights would only be lost as a result of a finding that the person is a danger to themselves or others, or lacks the capacity to manage his own affairs,” the gun lobby said in a statement.

Kristen Rand, legislative director of the Violence Policy Center, which advocates tighter gun control, said this shows that the legislation was “hijacked by the gun lobby and would now do far more harm than good.

“Rather than focusing on improving the current laws prohibiting people with certain mental health disabilities from buying guns, the bill… will waste millions of taxpayer dollars restoring the gun privileges of persons previously determined to present a danger to themselves or others,” Rand said.

“Once a solution, the bill is now part of the problem,” she said.

However another gun control group, the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence, urged Bush to sign the measure.

“Every day that passes until this legislation becomes law, dangerous people will go into gun stores and not be blocked from buying deadly weapons, thus putting lives at risk,” the group said in a statement.

Latest Information About Ed And Elaine Browns Stand Against The Criminal I.R.S.

Elaine Brown Offers Details Of Her Arrest

Elaine Brown performed dental work on the undercover U.S. marshal who arrested her, and was eating pizza and drinking beer with him and her husband, Ed, when she was suddenly tackled, Tasered and handcuffed, she said in a letter recently posted on the internet.

The arrest, in October, ended a nearly nine-month standoff between federal officials and the Browns, who vowed to die before surrendering to serve prison sentences for tax crimes. The Browns contend that no law required them to pay taxes on nearly $1.9 million of Elaine’s income from her dental practice.

They stockpiled weapons and explosives devices, court documents say, and hosted like-minded guests committed to helping them hold off authorities. They were arrested by a small team of undercover marshals who posed as supporters.

Accounts from Ed Brown and Shaun Kranish, an Illinois supporter of the couple who introduced them to an undercover marshal named “Dutch,” have provided a description of how the couple was tricked into inviting marshals to their home. But Elaine Brown’s letter includes new details that emphasize the trust she put in Dutch before the arrest.

“Dutch/Dan also brought 3 pizzas, and we broke out the beer. We all sat on the front porch, eating pizza and drinking beer, just relaxing,” the letter from prison says. “Suddenly they all jumped us.”

A facsimile of the handwritten letter was posted on an online message board Friday by a poster named “Keith in RI” and described as an “affidavit” from Elaine Brown. The handwriting is similar to writing in recent court pleadings penned by Brown.

U.S. Marshal Stephen Monier, who led the effort to apprehend the Browns, said that he had seen the letter but could not comment or confirm any details.

In a lengthy radio interview in October, Kranish described how he first chatted with Dutch online, then met him at a South Bend, Ind., gas station, agreed to help him with a security job on Long Island, drove cross country with him and finally escorted him to the Browns’ Plainfield home. Dutch told Kranish that he had professional skills that he could offer to the couple to help secure their home. According to Kranish’s account, the four stayed up all night talking when they arrived at the Browns’ home, but Kranish left Dutch alone with the couple for several hours while he took a nap.

According to Elaine’s letter, Dutch, who told Kranish his real name was Daniel Farrioli, described his profession differently.

“Dutch/Dan stayed with us for a day or so, offering to aid us in any way,” she wrote. “He claimed to be a bounty hunter, living in New York someplace. I do not recall if he said exactly where. He asked to have some broken fillings replaced, which I did, and for which he paid me.”

A blog post this summer, written by a man who was living with the couple, said Elaine Brown had brought some dental equipment to her house and was performing work there to earn money. During her trial, an employee testified that Elaine refused to use metal fillings containing mercury or provide fluoride treatments because she feared the chemicals would poison her patients.

In June, IRS agents seized and secured her former office in West Lebanon. Dutch offered to break into the building and recover more dental supplies for Brown, the letter says. He said he would go home to New York to bring friends who could help him.

“I had asked him why he would take such a risk for someone he didn’t even know,” she wrote. “His answer was, ‘Because I love you guys.’ I remember those exact words.”

On Oct. 4, the day of the arrest, Dutch returned with four friends, the letter says. One or two stayed at her house while Dutch and the others said they were going to the office. They returned later with full bags and three pizzas.

The arrest happened during dinner, the letter said.

In Ed Brown’s account of the arrest, which he told to Kranish in a recorded phone conversation from the Elkton, Ohio, prison where he was initially held, he said that Dutch “swarmed” him and he did not resist. (Kranish confirmed that the recording was authentic, and Monier, who declined to comment on Brown’s statement at the time, did not deny that the recording was real.)

“I had the opportunity to stop Dutch, real quick and real brief. You know, I’m really fast,” Brown told Kranish in the recording. “I’m not going to hurt anybody, and I don’t want to hurt anybody.”

Elaine’s version is slightly different. She wrote that Dutch “jumped” her while the other four marshals went for her husband.

“Dutch/Dan was sitting on my right, and he grabbed me securing my hands. Once he had me secured, one of the others tasered me on my left knee,” the letter says. “The other 4 men had Ed on the floor, they had actually forced him out of his chair, through the front door, and onto the foyer floor. We were immediately handcuffed.”

Monier has provided few details about the circumstances of the arrest, saying only that it involved a small team of marshals, took place on the couple’s porch and was without incident.

Elaine Brown wrote that Ed Brown was taken from the house first, where she was left for an hour with a growing crowd of heavily armed marshals. The letter says she “had no doubt they were ready to kill us.”

But she also said that one marshal kept telling her that he was glad they had not been shot.

She said she saw her husband briefly at the Lebanon police station before she was taken to a Rhode Island holding facility and later to the Danbury, Conn., minimum security prison where she is currently incarcerated.

“I passed by the cell Ed was in,” she wrote. “We kissed through the metal screen. That is the last time I saw my husband.”

Since their arrest, both Browns have corresponded with supporters, who have been discussing the missives in online discussion forums. “Keith in RI,” who posted the recent letter from Elaine Brown, has been writing to both Browns and four of their supporters who were arrested this summer, his messages say.

The Browns are both serving 63-month sentences for a series of crimes related to their unwillingness to pay federal income taxes on Elaine Brown’s dental income over several years. Monier has indicated that they will likely be charged with additional crimes once an investigation is complete. Court documents in their supporters’ cases have said that federal agents found more than two dozen improvised explosive devices, booby traps and 20 guns on the property. The Browns also publicly threatened federal officials, including the judge in their criminal trial

Throughout their stand, the Browns repeated that they would never surrender to authorities.

“We don’t know how this will end. But there are only two ways we are coming out of here,” Elaine Brown said on a web video recorded in March. “Either as a free man and as a free woman or in body bags.”

But in the recent letter, Elaine Brown describes ambivalence about her capture.

“Dutch/Dan was very good,” Elaine wrote in the letter. “Ed and I had our suspicions, but we let our guard down. Perhaps the situation was starting to get to us. I know I was starting to get itchy about being unable to leave, and having to rely on others. It had to end one way or another.”

According to Elaine’s affidavit and online transcriptions of other letters, the Browns have not been allowed to communicate directly, though they have learned of each other’s circumstances indirectly.

Ed Brown has struggled more with prison life, according to online accounts and the audio recording. In the taped phone conversation, he complained of abuse that included “gassing” through the prison ventilation system, isolation and unreasonably cold conditions. More recent letters have reiterated some of these complaints, in some cases alleging that he has been “permanently” damaged.

Transcriptions of Elaine Brown’s letters indicate she’s found some elements of prison life challenging, including the noise and the carbohydrate-laden diet, but has been getting along with her fellow inmates.

“I have met some amazing women here who have opened my eyes to a new path in our quest for freedom,” she wrote in the recent letter. “We are working along that road now, in our continuing effort to expose the fraud in our government. Is this why I am here?”

Audio Clip Reveals Ed Brown Was Tortured
Lee Rogers

Shaun Kranish of was able to call into the Ohio prison where Ed Brown is being held and managed to have a 10 minute conversation with him. This is the first known conversation that Ed Brown has had with anybody on the outside since his arrest. Ed and Elaine Brown were arrested out of their Plainfield, NH home a few weeks ago after a standoff with the Feds over the lawfulness of the Federal income tax. The Brown’s refused to pay the Federal income tax after they discovered problems with the legality and Constitutionality of the tax. During their trial, the Brown’s were not allowed to properly defend themselves and they were eventually found guilty in the kangaroo court. The phone conversation was recorded and uploaded to the web, but has since been removed from its original source. The audio clip of the phone conversation can be downloaded here.
In the phone conversation, Ed Brown reveals that he was put into a deprivation tank for hours, gassed for days and not allowed to receive mail or make phone calls. He also reveals that he was tasered during his apprehension and that terrible things were done to his wife Elaine.

Ed Brown also questioned why Kranish brought an individual named Dutch into the Brown’s home that ended up helping the Feds apprehend him. It is suspicious that Kranish was able to secure a conversation with him when nobody else has thus far been able to get in contact with him from the outside. The possibility that the release of this audio clip is a psychological warfare operation against the patriot community is a distinct possibility.

Either way, if the statements Ed Brown is making is true, he is certainly being mistreated and tortured by the Feds. There needs to be an investigation into this and anybody involved with mistreating Ed or Elaine Brown should be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law. All the Brown’s did was ask the Feds to show them the law that requires them to pay a Federal income tax on their labor. The Feds have failed thus far to do so which indicates that there is no law that requires the average American to pay and that the Federal income tax is enforced through the threat of force.
