Recently government documents that have been uncovered reveal that the U.S.
Department of Homeland Security's (DHS) Predator B drone fleet has been
designed to identify civilians carrying guns and track cell phone signals.
"I am very concerned that this technology will be used against law-abiding
American firearms owners," said founder and executive vice president of the
Second Amendment Foundation, Alan Gottlieb. "This could violate Fourth
Amendment rights as well as Second Amendment rights."
The Electronic Privacy Information Center (EPIC) obtained a partially
redacted copy of Homeland Security's drone requirements through a Freedom
of Information Act request; CNET uncovered an unredacted copy.
Homeland Security design requirements specify that its Predator B drones
"shall be capable of identifying a standing human being at night as likely
armed or not" and must be equipped with "interception" systems capable
of reading cell phone signals. Read More:
I'm not sure why targeting terrorists who are American citizens should be any
different than terrorists who aren't. They're both terrorists and should be
treated the same way. OOOPs Did I say that out loud?
These Drones will be used for much more than just tracking terrorist with
guns and cell phones.
There are no powers the government has not abused and will not abuse.
Government has become one of the most evil, destructive, dangerous thing on
earth. What has caused such denigration is leftist control freaks are on
If the Obama administration wants to deploy drones to target the enemies of
America, then they need to deploy drones around the White House and within
the Oval Office where the genuine enemies of America reside. Thanks for the
communism and tyranny stupid liberals.
This is what I don't get. Libs (Democrats) don't seem to understand that
eventually the political system will cycle back to the conservative side. Do
you Libs really want Jeb Bush having this capability to look up your skirt
and drop a bomb on you? I don't want Bush or Obama or Hilliary or any of the
rest of the DC goons having this kind of power.
Congress should pass a law making it illegal to use drones over
America-anywhere except the border with Mexico. Pass it now-let's see who in
our government truly supports the Constitution. The fact that the technology
has been modified to identify someone who may be armed is disturbing. Law
enforcement agencies have been getting away with murder-under the guise of
public safety for years-does anyone remember Waco Tx. over 100 civilians
died-many women and children. That incident has been ignored and anyone who
mentions Waco is labeled a "right wing kook" and a potential "domestic
terrorist" It's sad that so many Americans accept these actions from our
Now they can violate the 1st Amendment, 2nd Amendment, 4th Amendment, 9th
Amendment and 10th Amendment all at once. Very cool.
It may be too late but if no one rises up and stops them we will be Venezuela
with another 20 years of Obama. The next to fall will be the 22nd Amendment.”

A very interesting article. The electronic age has produced electron criminals.
1. A friend of a friend left their car in the long-term parking at San Jose while away, and someone broke into the car. Using the information on the car's registration in the glove compartment, they drove the car to the people's home in Pebble Beach and robbed it. So I guess if we are going to leave the car in long-term parking, we should not leave the registration/insurance cards in it, nor your remote garage door opener. This gives us something to think about with all our new electronic technology.
2. GPS.
A couple of weeks ago a friend told me that someone she knew had their car broken into while they were at a football game. Their car was parked on the green which was adjacent to the football stadium and
specially allotted to football fans. Things stolen from the car included a garage door remote control, some money and a GPS which had been prominently mounted on the dashboard. When the victims got home, they found that their house had been ransacked and just about everything worth anything had been stolen. The thieves had used the GPS to guide them to the house. They then used the garage remote control to open the garage door and gain entry to the house. The thieves knew the owners were at the football game, they knew what time the game was scheduled to finish and so they knew how much time they had to clean out the house. It would appear that they had brought a truck to empty the house of its contents.
Something to consider if you have a GPS - don't put your home address in it... Put a nearby address (like a store or gas station) so you can still find your way home if you need to, but no one else would know
where you live if your GPS were stolen.
I never thought of this.......
This lady has now changed her habit of how she lists her names on her mobile phone after her handbag was stolen. Her handbag, which contained her cell phone, credit card, wallet, etc., was stolen. 20
minutes later when she called her hubby, from a pay phone telling him what had happened, hubby says 'I received your text asking about our Pin number and I've replied a little while ago.' When they rushed
down to the bank, the bank staff told them all the money was already withdrawn. The thief had actually used the stolen cell phone to text 'hubby' in the contact list and got hold of the pin number. Within 20 minutes he had withdrawn all the money from their bank account.
Moral of the lesson:
a. Do not disclose the relationship between you and the people in your contact list. Avoid using names like Home, Honey, Hubby, Sweetheart, Dad, Mom, etc....
b. And very importantly, when sensitive info is being asked through texts, CONFIRM by calling back.
c. Also, when you're being texted by friends or family to meet them somewhere, be sure to call back to confirm that the message came from them. If you don't reach them, be very careful about going places to meet 'family and friends' who text you.
* I never thought about the above!
As of now, I no longer have 'home' listed on my cell phone.
Even if this does not pertain to you....Pass it on to your family and friends.”
