Probably just rumors…

From Doug Hagmann

At 1750 hours ET, I was contacted by my source within the Department of Homeland Security regarding the current situation at the Bundy Ranch. To put it bluntly, the people are being hoodwinked into believing that the situation is being resolved. It is not. It is a strategic de-escalation to fool the public. This source stated that the retreat of the BLM agents and the release of the cattle was actually crafted as a potential plan yesterday (Friday, 11 April 2014) based on the following:
1. A military assessment of satellite and drone surveillance imagery of the “patriot resistance. Drones under the control of the U.S. military were in use, taking real-time photographic images of not just the activity at the ranch, but “identifying the protesters, any arms and any supplies they might have or be carrying. “Mission accomplished.”
2. Real-time communication intercepts between patriots on-site and their off-site support;
3. Active monitoring of internet traffic regarding the coverage of events at ranch;
4. The monitoring of real-time video from the scene.

This source stated that a response by the patriot movement was anticipated, although exceeded their expectations. Although this was a real operation, they also ran this as a test case for future government operations once they saw the response. They were also actively managing the media, in some cases threatening to cut off White House access to anyone covering the event.
Despite this, the coverage by the alternative media began to create a public relations problem that was not easily managed. Note the lack of acknowledgment by the White House regarding this event.

They are intentionally framing it as a state issue, despite the fact that all federal response has been and continues to be from the White House. There is a reason for this – a reason that has not been identified in any of the public reports to date. I will explain in further detail in a follow-up report on Sunday, after this source attends [redacted] to obtain more specific information about future federal operations. Regardless, according to this source, the government will take back ‘their land’ as they must to fulfill international obligations. It was never about grazing rights or anything other than (1) “securing clear title” to the land, and (2) further demonizing any patriotic resistance. It is my understanding, based on the information from this source, that it is a critical task to create a situation that will also advance their agenda of gun control and confiscation.

There’s a mobile phone walkie-talkie project based on the Tox protocol and web of trust called Otruta that’s being developed especially for these situations. The lead guy is from the Ukraine, as a matter of fact.

We need contributors. Technology empowers people.

There is actually an armed Nevada militia headed for Cliven Bundy’s farm.

They’re called Revolution NOW, and they’ve posted two videos on youtube.

This one, declaring their intent, and another with directions to Cliven Bundy’s farm, which I’m not posting. But if it doesn’t get taken down, you’ll see it in the video description.

Putting all memes and jokes aside, it is actually fucking happening right this very fucking second.

Nevada followers, all followers, please share this story far and wide.

Basically this guy’s family has been grazing this plot of land since the 1870’s. In the 1980’s the Feds changed the laws and told him he could no longer graze on that land because an endangered turtle lived there, BUT if he paid them money he could continue to graze his cattle there because fuck that turtle. He told them to fuck off and kept grazing his cattle there, and has been in and out of court for it over the years. However, now we are experiencing a massive cattle shortage in this country and the price of beef is skyrocketing, and the feds want to control who gets meat and at what price, so they’re confiscating his cattle. They claim they’re doing it to protect the “endangered” turtles, but the reason he’s been called to court is because he wasn’t paying the ‘grazing fees.’

Either it is bad for the endangered species if cattle graze there or it is not. In the eyes of the State, paying a fee suddenly makes it all right for cattle to graze there.

If that just sounds like an extortion racket to you, it is.

Without government, who would extort teh money?

Open Source Clothing.

Now I feel it imperative to reblog this, because the project seems to have hit a snag: The video they put up has been taken down because of claims of 3rd-party content, whatever whatever corporate lawyer stuff internet throttling stuff. That makes me think that Bennetton or one of the others whose stores were glimpsed in the background got their hooks in Vimeo.So I thought I’d tell you a yarn about how this thing works: You download the open-source plans for the machine. You build it. You download their open-souce clothing-maker program.You enter the desired measurements into the fields (the ones I remember from the video were arm and neck and chest measurements, so I’m sure they have waist and/or hips too)You print out your sweater, or hat, or scarf, or cardigan, or whatever it was that you selected. It takes an hour to print out the sweater, working off of the two yarn spools that you can see in the bottom right corner of this .gifThat’s it. Custom-fit, custom-color clothing in an hour, for the price of yarn. Can you see why one of the clothing companies targetted in the video might have felt threatened enough to force the video to come down?

I know if I sold overpriced manufactured clothes, I’d see this as a looming menace.

I WILL HAVE HAUTE COUTURE

TITANFALL’S ANTICHEAT IS NOW BEING ENFORCED
Titanfall is doing anticheat a little differently. If detected you can keep playing, but you’ll have to play with all of the other cheaters. To quote them:

"Hopefully the aimbot cheat you paid for really is the best, or these all-cheater matches could be frustrating for you. Good luck."

Also, if you make a party as a banned user, everyone in your party is treated banned until you leave, forcing your good friends to be aimbot-killed over and over. They will begin to resent you (probably) and delete you off of Facebook.
This is an interesting way of doing things and hopefully it’ll discourage cheating more than banning from servers. We’ll see I guess!
