The NSA could enable a dictator to impose total tyranny
11 Jan 2006
if a dictator ever took over, the NSA "could enable [him] to impose total tyranny, and there would be no way to fight back."
Senator Frank Church chaired the Senate Hearings on the FBI’s Cointelpro operation, which spied upon & attempted to INFILTRATE, DISRUPT & DISCREDIT the peace movement, even Martin Luther King Jr.

if a dictator ever took over, the NSA "could enable [him] to impose total tyranny, and there would be no way to fight back."

From James Bamford’s NSA, the agency that could be Big Brother, Senator Church:

"That capability at any time could be turned around on the American people, and no American would have any privacy left, such is the capability to monitor everything: telephone conversations, telegrams, it doesn’t matter. There would be no place to hide."

He added that if a dictator ever took over, the NSA "could enable [him] to impose total tyranny, and there would be no way to fight back."

At the time, the agency had the ability to listen to only what people said over the telephone or wrote in an occasional telegram; they had no access to private letters. But today, with people expressing their innermost thoughts in e-mail messages, exposing their medical and financial records to the Internet, and chatting constantly on cellphones, the agency virtually has the ability to get inside a person’s mind…

"I don’t want to see this country ever go across the bridge," Senator Church said. "I know the capacity that is there to make tyranny total in America, and we must see to it that this agency and all agencies that possess this technology operate within the law and under proper supervision, so that we never cross over that abyss. That is the abyss from which there is no return."

MLK had informants on his staff. I wonder who has informants on their staff, travelling with them today…

BushCo is trying to bury the significance of their illegal spying, why aren’t the Democrats "screaming to the rafters"?

Re: The NSA could enable a dictator to impose total tyranny
12 Jan 2006
I am sending this message to whomever may be able to help. I have 2 children that I believe have been subjected to unknown materials or events that may be hazardous to their health.

Please refer to public law #108-153 for more details on NanoTechnology

According to Marty Spitzer from the House Science Committee, a former EPA employee.
“...we know very little about environmental implications,” “There’s early evidence
that some nanomaterials are harmful.”

-Also, most scientists agree that the research on safety of nanotechnolgoy is
“Lagging” behind. Nanomaterials can be seen in items such as
detergents, sun screens, building materials, electronics and medicine.
Greenwire, Monday, Oct. 24th, 2005

I Contacted U.S. Sen. Ben Nelson (attachment #1) during summer recess and was contacted by his Nebr. Director Don Nelson. I was referred by him to Dr. Prem Paul and/or Monica Norby his assistant, at the UNL campus that are working on numerous experiments/ research in the nanotechnology area.

I contacted Sen. Nelson due to the fact that he is a member of the Sen. Committee on commerce, science and transportation and there was a report due to that committee by the NRC by June 10th, 2005. Don Nelson was not aware of any such report at that time that was to include ethical, harmful, environmental effects of NanoTechnology Research which I am concerned with. And to this day have not been informed of any update on that matter by the Senator’s office.

It also troubles me that the social, ethical, environmental and legal aspects of this research does not seem to be a priority within the Nanotechnology sector. As evidence of my concern, as of
Oct. ‘05 even scientists, industry leaders and government agencies agree that research into the effects on the environment and health of humans needs to be a top priority for all researchers. The House Science committee is planning at least one hearing on these matters. (As of Oct. ‘05)
The EPA’s Science Policy Council is expected to have a white paper concluded in December ‘05
outlining the “research needs” in these areas.

It seems to me that the safety of these materials should have been tested long before they became common use. Such as the testing on pharmaceuticals and other medical devices and chemicals.
EX: textiles (cotton),
I also contacted Sen. Chuck Hagel’s Washington office and spoke to Paul, he did not know of anything pertaining to these issues due to the fact that Sen. Hagel is not a member of the above committee and did not want to comment on the issues that I was concerned with. I have also tried to contact approximately 1000 other various agencies/ persons with only a few brief responses that have yielded me very little information.

Some details of interest:

1. I believe that the events that we have experienced can be attributed to a combination of:

a. Military/Governmental research: some of the following research areas also would
apply to this subsection.
-Research on new aerial aircraft, i.e. v-22, Unmanned aerial vehicles, etc.
with Offit Air force base being STRATCOM that involves all areas of the military. Currently research is being done using NanoTubes for solar
Aircraft .
- DOD acquisition of capabilities to defend against low altitude aircraft. UAV etc.
-Homeland Security working on uniforms for soldiers that will monitor a soldiers
Vital statistics and relay that information to a command and control center.
-Northrop Grumman- Infrared “Counter measure:
Flight tests were recently completed flight tests on Fed-Ex and military aircraft against laser guided missel defense.
Demonstrations have been done to the DHS.
-Raytheon’s project Vigilant Eagle:
Directed energy technology- Infrared airial sensors using RF energy.
High Powered Microwaves are used. Detects Heat
Forms a Protective Dome. Demonstrations thru Jan ‘06.

b. Nano Technology: With no mandatory regulations at the time of this summery.
EPA is now developing voluntary regulations (Oct 24, ‘05)
1. NanoTechnology is being widely studied in various locations including UNL.
A physics professor is currently using lasers to test the fundamental
properties of matter that is funded through the “Centers of Excellence”
Through the DOE, DOD, NSF.. (?) These “centers” are also involved in NanoTechnology research.

2. 8-25-05 LJS From Wire Reports
Nanotubes are slender but strong electrically conductive sheets of carbon, 50x stronger than Steele. Could be used for ultra light race cars that bodies can serve as batteries or synthetic muscles with 100x the strength of normal muscles or for Solar Spacecraft.

3. Current issues of Science:
By depositing iron particles on sheets of silicone by heating and exposing to carbon
gas (possibly by lasers?) create tiny rows of carbon cylinders called NanoTubes.
Study author Ray Baugman the director of the NanoTechnology Institute at the U.
Of Texas, Dallas
-Atomic attraction “van der Waals forces”
-Transparent sheets for heated windows or bullet proof vests.
-highly conductive
-since 1990's ben able to fabricate tiny electrical wires by linking nanotubes with resin or some other polymer, ineffective because loose current at each joint.
-new sheets are made of unbroken nanotubes instead

-a wire cut from a sheet could operate with a fraction of the power needed previously

4. Water molecules interacting with carbon nanostructures can be used as fuel.
-could be reason why we have such sever drought in our area, i.e. ponds are going dry and huge cracks in ground.
(See press release 10-05-05 “Hydrogen Energy Breakthrough? NCSU scientists use nanotechnology to split water, Posted from, Special to LTW)

Published in the National Academy of Sciences.
-University of Buffalo
-Delivered gene nanoparticle complexes into the brains of MICE at least as effective as viral vectors and with no OBSERVABLE toxic effect.
–activate the adult brain stem/progenitor cells. May be able to replace those lost due to neurodegenerative diseases.
-Provides promising models for STUDYING the GENETIC MECHANISMS OF THE BRAIN.
-Dramatic leap into experimenting in new techniques to study brain biology and therapies.
-Nanoparticles (that are light enough to float through the air) are developed by synthesization in a few days by an experienced chemist.
-hybrid, organically modified silica (ORMOSIL) which can become a wide variety of particles to target genes for different tissue and cell types..
-Experiments targeted DOPAMINE neurons (took up and expressed a fluorescent marker gene) showing that these genes could target different areas of the brain.
-Using (CellviZio) a new optical fiber in vivo imaging technique they were able to watch brain cells expressing genes without having to sacrifice the animal?
*Went one step further*** they wanted to see if they could manipulate the behavior of brain cells.
-nanoparticles successfully altered the development path of neural stem cells.
-REACTIVATED ADULT STEM CELLS ON THE FLOOR OF the brain ventricles, germ cells. (Michal K. Stachowiak, Ph.D.,)
-Likely that those stem/progenitor cells will grow into healthy neurons.
-Next step **********is to conduct experiments on larger animals.

Funding and support by the John R. Oishei Foundation, NSF, American Parkinson Disease Association and UB’s New York State Center of Excellence in Bioinformatics and life sciences. Research at the Institute for lasers, photonics and biophotonics has been supported by special New York State funding sponsored by State Sen. Mary Lou Rath.

6. A study by Southern Methodist University found that “buckyballs” may cause
Extensive brain damage in fish. Also linked the material, a nano-sized
Carbon molecules, to altered behavior of genes in liver cells of bass. Other
Studies have shown that carbon nanotubes may impair lung function.
(Greenwire, Oct. 24th, ‘05)

Let me repeat myself, there is NO mandatory regulations on these materials or devices.

c. Electromagnetic Spectrum Research. i.e. radio, microwave, x-ray etc:
1. Research or use of Tactical Infra sound technology which was a recent
Study conducted by “JASON”.

2. Research or use of Technology involving areas of the electromagnetic spectrum.
i.e. New communication of Emergency responders? That may be able to use the above mentioned technology.

3. GLORIAD- International Computing Network
-High speed 10g CIRCUIT
-global ring network for advanced applications developer
-scientist and engineers- Northern Hemisphere
-grid middleware

4. Rice University 10-31-05
-Researcher Tony Ro, Associate professor of psychology
-visual information can be processed unconsciously
-Induced temporary blindness for a fraction of a second using TMS-Trans-cranial magnetic Stimulation (harmless. But what if pulses are longer and stronger?) That use brief magnetic pulses to the visual cortex within the back of the brain.

5. HAARP program (Alaska 92-93)
-Requires special processing method to detect ionosphere fields (stereo graphic image) Can see a great deal of “noise” (background noise or static) but can incorporate a message built in the noise along with a picture. The message can be read using a special processing power provided by “2 eyes” setting about an arms length from the monitor (Possible Subliminal
-HAARP is safe at the voltage and frequency being used at the research facility but I Am concerned what the harm would be if the same technology was used at a higher voltage and different frequency.
Tony Frazier-Smith, Stanford University created the image.
See: The safety of ELF fields generated in the ionosphere (HAARP)

6. NIST/EEEL department: Jan ‘05

-EEEL Dielectric measurements of building materials. i.e. electromagnetic properties of concrete etc. using different wavelengths. Radio, broadband etc. Strategies for development of measurements of electromagnetic properties of various building materials. Some of which contain various nanomaterials.

-also working on Face recognition Technology and Portable x-ray systems.
(There is a reason why medical professionals use Personal
Protective Equipment)
(See: EEEL Jan. 05)

7: Connected to the above:
- Nebr. Center for excellence in Electronics Labs-Lincoln
EMC Lab is AZLA accredited
One of only 10 meter semianechoic chambers
Radio frequency emissions and immunity from electromagnetic
Compatibility testing.
-Serves AVIATION, medical, SCIENTIFIC, and cellular industries
Doug Kramer- Electromagnetic compliance engineer. **Only certified personnel in Nebr. (NARTE).

8. Large numbers of birds are a problem at Offit Air force Base in Omaha
That the base had to find ‘control” measures for.
-may be due to the research being done at DUKE on the use of “songbirds”
Brains To study the molecular biology of learned vocal communications.
-Duke scientist earned $2.5 million grant from NIH.
-2000-2004 found “similar gene activation occurs in other vocal learning
Species,...used these findings to gain insight into evolution of brain
Pathways for vocal learning, including humans.”
-2005 researchers discovered that “night-migratory songbirds” have
A specialized night vision brain area that could enable the birds

9. Research at Wayne State University: Imagery devices (ultrasound, spectroscopy
And scanning prove microscopy), pharmaceutical delivery, magnetic
nano-particles for MRI’s, neural implants amongst other things.
Collaborating with government, industry and other academic institutions.

d. Sensors: Using Lasers or Electromagnetic Spectrum:

1. The French and U.S. involvement in “Network inferred sensors” that create a protective dome, that can be used to protect airports and aircraft which uses Electro-magnetic waves.
i.e. Raytheon’s Vigilant Eagle system and countermeasures being designed
by northrup Grumman.

2. Various “sensor” research.
Including x-ray and face recognition devices mentioned above.
(See NSTI, NanoPulse ESD/EMI Sensor is separating ESD from all the rest, Sept. 5, 2005)

-Also being done by various researchers at Wayne State University.
For example: Professor Erhard Rothe, Assistant Professor
Xiaoyan, Han, Professor Vladimir Mitin, Professor Harpeet
Singh, Associate Professor James R. Woodyard, Among many
Others. These projects are funded in a large part by NASA and the
NSF along with other governmental agencies.

3. NIST recent and past advancements in technology used to calibrate and verify sensors and detectors some of which are used for radiation and other matter. These sensors and detectors are used by the Army, Air Force, DHS as well as in the public sector.

If calibration verification is done correctly, both means of calibration must be tested at the same time in order to show that both means of calibration show the same results.
(Harmful vs non-harmful).
(See: Quantum Electrical Metrology Division, January 2005)

4. Professor, Physics and Astronomy/Center for Materials Research and Analysis,
Peter A. Dowben has worked on chemical vapor depositions, molecular magnets, ferro electric crystalline molecular films etc. Some of which were
Or are funded by NSF, the Office of Naval Research and the Nebraska Research initiative. With many affiliations including the University of Damascus, Syria, Air Force Institute of Technology, Argonne National

2. Other various concerns:
a. PCAST members are predominately made up of industry representatives. Mainly
Electronics industry. With no medical Dr.’s or Psychological experts etc.
(See PCAST report May 2005)

b. Basically all articles within the NNCO website pertain to cyber, electronics or
communication. There is almost no or no mention of research aimed at
health, safety research into the implications of the products etc. described
on this site. It is mainly addressed at recruiting industry. The closest thing
I could find was the “electronic industry code of conduct”.

c. Efforts to contact various members of the House of Representatives serving
on committees that I believe would be able to assist me with these matters
was not possible via Internet because of their contact forms. I feel that as
a American I should have the right to contact not only my House Representative
but other representatives that serve on these committees.

d. The proposed Bill by Sen. Richard Burr and Sen. Bill Frist on the Implementation
Of the Biomedical Advanced Research and Development Agency. S.1873
-Would be exempt from FOIA and free of judicial reviews. (Oct. ‘06)

e. A recent conversation with Micah Intermill from Sen. Ben Nelson’s office in which
he replied to me “we will not be pursuing anything else on this issue until
we get the full and complete notes from the folks at the University.” Feel
free to let us know once you have spoken with them. “Thanks for your understanding.”
-I feel that it IS Mr Nelson’s offices responsibility to look into the matters that
Do not pertain to the University since the Senator has the ability to contact
Many of those within government that may be able to assist me. I am further
Severely disgusted with all of those that I have contacted that have the moral/ethical responsibility To research these matters for the health and safety of our citizens. Most Importantly, the children. Including the scientific and medical community.
3. Reasons for my concern:
a. One of the issues that I am concerned with is connected to the use of lasers near my home. I did contact the Laser Institute of America to inquire about the use of lasers and their harmful effects if not used correctly.
In our case I do not believe that they were used as they should be.

b. Terahurtz Radiation (Tera waves, T-waves, t-lux, THz
-penetrates non-conductive material. (Clothing, paper, cardboard, wood,
masonry, plastic and ceramics.
-also fog, clouds
-CAN NOT penetrate metal or water.
-atmosphere blocks
-similar to microwaves
-unlike x-rays
-can penetrate several cm of tissue
-used in surveillance (Is this good for human tissue?)

*Lockheed U2
-recognizance satellites (used for surveillance)
-“trusted” computing devices. (Internet and computer surveillance)

c. Gamma rays are the most energetic

-not stopped by atmosphere
-gamma telescopes must be at high altitudes (orbiting spacecraft) ?ISS or
other observatories.

d. Strange Ground clutter on NWS radar around Lincoln also unusual cloud pattern around our area.. Unusual cloud formations, Unusual spin and dissipations. “Dry air pockets” around our property. Weather almost Always differs from that of NWS and their Doppler radar..
-Sever hail storm early spring/ summer that involved several areas around
Our location, including our home which resulted in almost baseball
Sized hail.
*Also could be due to study on using H2O splitting as fuel**********
which is done using lasers

Again I am sending this in fear of the health and safety of my family. I know that these things are taking place and I need someone to look into them. I have gotten little to no response thus far and I must keep trying. I also know that there are other issues being researched or used in this area and I am in hopes that one of you can look into these things further.

If my suspicions are correct, some of these unacceptable and non-consensual experimentation/
demonstrations are in fact against several regulations and / or contrary to many or all
codes of ethical conduct pertaining to almost every governmental, industrial, medical, etc. community world wide.

Please Contact me if you wish to discuss this matter in further detail.

Thank you for your time,

If you already gave a comment then you obviously didn't have time to read through the information nor did you verify any of the sources of information that I listed.

Only true intillectual, scientific minds should be posting comments.
