By Daily Mail Reporter

A book Scientologists have kept off the shelves of American book stores for 27-years that alleges church founder L. Ron Hubbard was a fantasist with a predilection for bizarre sexual rituals is finally to be published.

Written by British journalist Russell Miller in 1986, ‘Bare-Faced Messiah’ cuts a swath through the many myths the Scientologist chief built up around himself and exposes him as a charismatic charmer, who targeted celebrity devotees.

Miller alleges that Hubbard lied about his service in World War 2 and that instead of the millions of members the church claims to have – in fact only counts around 25,000 people as followers.

‘Bare-Faced Messiah: The True Story of L. Ron Hubbard’ was published around the globe, but two years of litigation from Scientologists held up the book in the United States.

Now finally, it has been printed by Silvertail Books, with a newly written introduction from Miller.

The biography goes right back to the start of Hubbard’s life in Montana, where Hubbard said he grew up breaking wild horses on his grandfather’s ranch.

However, Miller claims that Hubbard’s grandfather was a ‘small-time veterinarian who supplemented his income renting out horses and buggies from a livery barn.’…

DARPA project seeks hive mind for drones

Reuters / Chad Slattery

The Pentagon’s research arm is launching a program to unite existing and future drones into hives, where individual autonomous aircraft will share data and operate together against targets on a battlefield – all while being controlled by one human.

The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) recently announced that, on April 11, it will hold a “proposer’s day” for its Collaborative Operations in Denied Environments (CODE) program. CODE’s objective is to expand capacity of unmanned aerial vehicles, or drones, to include “autonomy and inter-platform collaboration.”

“Collaborative autonomy has the potential to significantly increase the capabilities of [existing drones] as well as to reduce the cost of future systems by composing heterogeneous teams of [drones] that can leverage the capabilities of each asset without having to duplicate or integrate capabilities into a single platform,” DARPA’s announcement explains.

“Using collaboration algorithms, [drones] can provide services to each other, such as geolocating targets with long-distance sensors and guiding less-capable systems within their sensor range, providing multimodal sensors and diverse observation angles to improve target identification, transmitting critical information through the network…[and] protecting each other by overwhelming defenses and other stratagems.”

With CODE, DARPA hopes to develop four “critical technology areas” for its future drones: single-drone mission and flight autonomy; a human-systems interface that enables a “mission commander” to manage a drone fleet and handle “critical inputs” such as telling drones to fire weapons; drone-team autonomy that gives a fleet one common intelligence while exploiting the best capabilities and attributes of each “member”; and an “open architecture” that would guide aspects of a squadron, allowing them to pass information between each other and humans.

The CODE project, according to DARPA, is an effort to ready today’s relatively primitive drones for “dynamic” future conflicts, which the agency believes will be marked by “a higher level of threats, contested electromagnetic spectrum, and re-locatable targets.”…

Two FBI Agents Murdered Over Danny’s $235,000? The Closing of ‘Loose Lips Sinks Ships’?

Two FBI Agents Murdered Over Danny’s $235,000? The Closing of ‘Loose Lips Sinks Ships’?

imagesCAFGZXFP

Two FBI agents of the elite Hostage Rescue Team, involved in the arrest of Dzhokar Tsarnaev, fall out of helicopter. http://www.dailypaul.com/286354/2-fbi-agents-involved-in-dzhokar-tsarnaevs-arrest-fall-out-of-helicoptor-and-die Christopher Lorek and Stephen Shaw, “…while agents assigned to the Hostage Rescue Team, HRT, have no other duties. http://hamptonroads.com/2013/05/fbi-agents-died-fall-helicopter-va-coast

‘Detail’ of deaths: “The statement gave few details regarding the deaths of Special Agents Christopher Lorek and Stephen Shaw, other than to say the helicopter encountered unspecified difficulties and the agents fell a “significant distance.”

A law enforcement source told The Pilot the incident happened about 12 nautical miles off the coast of Virginia Beach. The official blamed bad weather for the incident and said the agents – members of the FBI’s Hostage Rescue Team, based in Quantico – fell into the water. The official said he believed the agents died as a result of the impact rather than drowning.” The statement gave few details regarding the deaths of Special Agents Christopher Lorek and Stephen Shaw, other than to say the helicopter encountered unspecified difficulties and the agents fell a “significant distance.” http://hamptonroads.com/2013/05/fbi-agents-died-fall-helicopter-va-coast

Based on the quote, the HRT agents would have only dealt with a hostage situation. The only hostage situation was the miraculous, mysterious survival of ‘hero’ hostage, ‘Danny’. Accounts of the hostage encounter range from 30 minutes and letting him go, to 90 minutes with a daring escape in which he escapes 2 men with guns. http://swampland.time.com/2013/04/21/give-thanks-for-dumb-terrorists/

According to ‘Danny’, “When Dzhokhar headed inside to pay with cash, Danny jumped out before Tamerlan could respond. He ran across to another petrol station, where the attendant dialed 911.” http://www.independent.co.uk/news/world/americas/man-taken-hostage-after-marathon-blasts-speaks-of-his-terror-8589767.html

According to Danny, he was alone in the car while the brothers loaded stuff in the van from a house. Nope, didn’t try to escape then. He waited until one was sitting right next to him with a gun.

According to Danny, after being told that the brothers had murdered at Boston and MIT, where the brothers were going, and also knowing that they had his car, they just let him go or just let Danny escape…

Google: 80% of news organisations are targeted by state hackers

80% of the world's biggest news agencies have been the target of apparent state-sponsored hackers.

More than four-fifths of the world’s top media organisations, including the Guardian, have been the target of likely state sponsored hacking attacks, according to research from two Google security engineers.

Presented at the ongoing Black Hat Asia 2014 conference in Singapore, Shane Huntley and Morgan Marquis-Boire’s research shows that journalists are “massively over-represented” among the targets of state-sponsored hackers.

While the pair didn’t go into detail about their methodology, they confirmed to Reuters that Google “tracks the state actors that attack our users”.

Those who the company suspects have been the target of such attacks are notified by a banner across the top of their webmail login, such as this displayed to Guardian staffers since mid-March:

Huntley told Reuters that “if you’re a journalist or a journalistic organisation we will see state-sponsored targeting and we see it happening regardless of region, we see it from all over the world both from where the targets are and where the targets are from.”

Google’s advice to those it suspects of being a state target is simple. “Be careful about where you sign in to Google… Always use up-to-date software and] enable 2-step verification in Gmail,” the company says in [the support document linked in the above warning…

Malaysian Airline Flight 370: Is There a Cover-Up by the CIA, Malaysian Government? Did the Plane Land in Diego Garcia and Disembark the Dead Passengers, Crew?

By Vittorio Hernandez | March 30, 2014 2:58 AM EST

More theories are being floated on the reasons behind the mysterious disappearance of Malaysia Airlines Flight 370. One theory cited by Web site Presstv.ir is that the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) is involved why the ill-fated Boeing 777 is still missing.

The Web site pointed out that the 777 is a fly by wire jet whose control system could be remotely piloted by the CIA in case of an emergency. Presstv said it verified that fact with Boeing and commercial pilots.

It insists of a cover-up and media’s silence on it. The report said while the world was told that the jet was lost, it was allegedly being monitored by the North American Aerospace Defense Command (NORAD) and its regional defense partners via the secret systems installed in the plane.

It cited a 2006 Boeing announcement in Flight Global written by John Croft of the plane manufacturer receiving a U.S. patent for a system that upon activation takes away all controls from the pilot and could return the plan to a predetermined landing location.

The system could be activated by the pilots, onboard sensors or remotely using radio of satellite links of government agencies such as the CIA.

The article also claimed that the technical staff at Rolls Royce also monitored the plane’s flight, citing a Wall Street Journal report. It said the technicians even reported the plane’s position to the British government. The Boeing 777 uses Rolls Royce Trent engines which Rolls Royce leases to airlines and monitors all the time while the jet is flying.

Presstv then cited its sources that the plane landed on Diego Garcia, refueled, the dead passengers dropped off and the jet moved elsewhere.

US military in no shape to face the grandsons of Red Army

Russian soldiers patrol the area surrounding the Ukrainian military unit in Perevalnoye, Ukraine on March 20, 2014.

Russian soldiers patrol the area surrounding the Ukrainian military unit in Perevalnoye, Ukraine on March 20, 2014.

War fever is in the air. Fifty thousand Russian troops and armor are massed on Ukraine’s eastern border. Europe and Washington worry that the reborn Red Army may sweep west across Ukraine, Moldova, the Baltics – even into Poland.

The West is suffering from a bad case of Cold War chills.

Not only are the Western powers worried, they are discovering that they likely lack the means to stop possible Russian incursions into what was the former Soviet Empire.

They should not be at all surprised that Russia is again showing signs of life.

Frederick the Great, the renowned Prussian warrior-king, warned: “he who tried to defend everything, defends nothing.”

Every young officers should have Great Fredrick’s words tattooed on his right hand. Soon after the Soviet Union collapsed in 1991, a small number of strategists, this analyst included, warned NATO, “do not move east. It’s a bridge too far.”

Soviet chairman Mikhail Gorbachev had agreed to let rebellious East Germany escape Soviet control – but in exchange for NATO’s vow not to push east in previously Soviet dominated areas of Eastern Europe and the Caucasus. The US and NATO agreed, then quickly broke their pledge.

NATO’s advance into Eastern Europe, the Baltic and the Caucasus – not to mention former Soviet Central Asia – that brought the US-led alliance right up to Russia’s borders. US anti- missile systems were scheduled to go into Poland, close to Russian territory. New US bases were set up in Bulgaria, Rumania and Central Asia.

Unsubtle US efforts to bring ex-Russian Ukraine and the vital Sevastopol naval base in Crimea under NATO control – no doubt to punish Russia for supporting Syria and Iran – proved the last straw for the Kremlin.

Talking tough is easy. Defending Eastern Europe from a possible Russian invasion will not be. The main problem is that while US/NATO guarantees have been advanced to Russia’s sensitive borders, their military capabilities have not. In short, commitment without capability.

Russia’s military could take over the Baltic states of Latvia, Lithuania and Estonia in an afternoon. Sizeable portions of their populations are ethnic Russians.

NATO is not deployed or equipped to go to war over Ukraine: its troops are far to the west, without supply systems or air cover. Besides, European powers, aside from the little Nazis in Denmark and Ukraine’s nationalists, want no part of war with Russia – that’s left to the war hawks safely at home in Washington.

The barrage of trade sanctions Washington is imposed on Russia is an act of pre-war. We should remember that US sanctions imposed on Japan in 1941 that led Tokyo to attack the Western powers.

During the Cold War, the US had some 400,000 troops in Europe, 800 warplanes and potent naval forces. Today, the US has only 43,000 troops left in Europe: two combat brigades and the rest air force and logistics personnel. The old days when the Soviet Union had 50,000 tanks pointed at Western Europe are long gone, but Russia’s modernized armed forces still pack punch.

Meanwhile, the US has scattered forces all over the globe in what Frederick the Great would call an effort to defend everything. Most notably, US troops have gone to Afghanistan, Iraq, then Kuwait, and many home. America’s strongest divisions are now guarding Kansas and Texas instead of German’s Fulda Gap and Hanover.

America’s military power has been dissipated in little colonial wars, just as Britain’s were in the 19th century. When British imperial troops had to face real German soldiers, they were slaughtered. Similarly, the US military, reconfigured after Vietnam to wage guerilla wars, is in no shape today to face the grandsons of the once mighty Red Army

Obama Spends $967 Million to Create 10 Solar Energy Jobs

agua_caliente

 

 

 

 

By Dave Jolly on Mar 29, 2014

President Barack Obama has spent billions of taxpayer dollars trying to kill the oil industry in favor of green energy. The shutdown of Solyndra has become the poster child of Obama’s failed green energy program.

So perhaps Obama will start touting the success of the Aqua Caliente Solar Project in Yuma, Arizona. Yuma is one of the sunniest places in America averaging 350 sunny days a year out 365. Located in the Lower Sonoran Desert in the southwestern corner of Arizona, there are miles of open and nearly barren desert, making it an ideal place to build the world’s largest solar panel power generating system.

Aqua Caliente Solar Project covers nearly 2,400 acres of desert land. Its construction took several years and is projected to produce 350 MW of power, enough to service about 225,000 homes in California. President Obama helped secure $967 million in federal loans for the construction and start-up of ACSP. Currently, Aqua Caliente has 10 permanent employees, which means that it cost US taxpayers nearly $100 million per permanent job.

Perhaps I should note at this point that Yuma has an unemployment rate of 26.1%, one of the highest, if not the highest in the nation. Aqua Caliente is supposed to be completed later this year and at that time they plan on having 16 permanent jobs at the facility which still means it cost taxpayers $60.4 million per job.

Now contrast Yuma with Midland, Texas. Midland sits on top of a huge shale oil and uses fracking to extract the oil. Between 2009 and 2011, the Texas town saw a 25% increase per capita income which is more than three times the national average. What is the unemployment rate in Midland you ask? Try 2.9% unemployment, the lowest of any metro area in the nation. How much in federal guaranteed loans did Midland get? After a little research, I couldn’t find any…
