747 Skims New York Skyline Obama burns 9,116 gallons of fuel flying to Iowa to give a speech about making the U.S. more energy efficient

Source: The New, Tuesday, 28 April 2009

Why would Louis Caldera, a member of the White House military office, okay a plan to have the 747 that’s used as Air Force One, the president’s plane (the president was not on board), fly low over New York’s skyline on April 27, followed by a fighter jet, considering New Yorkers’ experiences with 9/11? Because image is important.

For half an hour the planes swooped near Manhattan as panicked New Yorkers streamed out of office buildings, fearing a replay of the September 11 attacks. But there wasn’t an attack. The 747 and its fighter accompaniment (and a third plane carrying a military photographer) were merely doing laps past the Statue of Liberty so that some publicity photos could be taken. Though New York cops were forewarned about the flyover, they were not allowed to inform the public about the photo shoot. Even the mayor didn’t know (his office was contacted, but apparently a staffer didn’t inform him).

When asked about the incident, President Obama said, according to AP: “It was a mistake. It was something we found out about along with all of you. And it will not happen again.” But why would Obama functionaries allow it to happen in the first place, especially since President Obama promotes himself as the “green” president and a 747 burns approximately a gallon of fuel per second (An F-16 uses somewhere around one-third that much)? Again the answer is, “Because image is important.”

The president’s subordinate was just following Obama’s lead. On Earth Day, president Obama flew to Des Moines, Iowa, to give a speech about green energy. White House correspondent Mark Knoller did the fuel-math. To give a speech about making the United States more energy efficient, Obama’s plane and helicopter burned approximately 9,116 gallons of fuel. That’s not including the fuel burned in the planes carrying reporters to cover the event.

It has been said that actions speak louder than words. I know what these actions tell me. What do they tell you?

Western military forces turning inward in anticipation of domestic unrest

Source: Old-Thinker, 10 March 2009

By Daniel Taylor

As the growing world-wide economic crisis deepens, military forces from Canada, the United States, and the United Kingdom are preparing to meet angry citizens on the street. The economic crisis – and the public outrage it is causing – is at the forefront of intelligence agencies and military forces in the western world.

Prominent trends forecaster Gerald Celente has been sounding the alarm for years, warning that riots and tax revolts are coming to America. The Pentagon, U. K. Ministry of Defense, and Canadian military apparently agree. In November of 2008 the United States Army War College released the report Known Unknowns: Unconventional “Strategic Shocks” in Defense Strategy Development. The report identifies economic collapse as a reason for the defense establishment to conduct domestic operations.
The report states, “Widespread civil violence inside the United States would force the defense establishment to reorient priorities in extremis to defend basic domestic order and human security. Deliberate employment of weapons of mass destruction or other catastrophic capabilities, unforeseen economic collapse, loss of functioning political and legal order, purposeful domestic resistance or insurgency…”

The CIA and MI5 are both watching the economic situation for signs of unrest and political instability. As the Washington Post reports, the CIA has added an economic situation report to its threat assessment for the White House. A further sign that the United States government is anticipating widespread unrest comes with the domestic stationing of the 1st Brigade Combat Team of the 3rd Infantry Division.
The Army Times reports, “They may be called upon to help with civil unrest and crowd control or to deal with potentially horrific scenarios such as massive poisoning and chaos in response to a chemical, biological, radiological, nuclear or high-yield explosive, or CBRNE, attack.”

Canadian military forces have been given a nearly identical domestic mission in a synchronized move with the United States. Canada’s National Post reports that, “The Canadian military has embarked on a wide-ranging plan to turn its reserve soldiers into focused units trained and equipped to respond to a nightmarish array of domestic threats, including terrorist “dirty bomb” attacks, biological agent containment, Arctic catastrophes and natural disasters.”

David Bercuson, director of the Centre for Military and Strategic Studies at the University of Calgary admits that contingencies exist that “…envisioned scenarios that might require a form of constabulary or policing function for reserves in civilian containment and security.”

Overseas, the United Kingdom’s MI5 is also anticipating widespread unrest in response to economic downturn. The Daily Express reports that the U.K. Army is “on standby” in the event of unrest during a “summer of discontent.”

The United Kingdom’s own Ministry of Defense foresaw middle class revolution two years ago in the 2007 The DCDC Global Strategic Trends report. “The middle classes could become a revolutionary class…,” the report states. “The growing gap between themselves and a small number of highly visible super-rich individuals might fuel disillusion with meritocracy, while the growing urban under-classes are likely to pose an increasing threat to social order and stability, as the burden of acquired debt and the failure of pension provision begins to bite.”

Ominously, legislation was recently introduced to Congress that would authorize “national emergency centers” on military installations that will provide “temporary housing, medical, and humanitarian assistance to individuals and families dislocated due to an emergency or major disaster.” The National Emergency Centers Act can be read here.

As new taxes – like paying by mileage and carbon taxes meant to send “price signals” to consumers – are imposed and more money is demanded from debt laden citizens to save failing banks there is little doubt that resistance will grow. Just how far the bankers can go remains to be seen, but the military is ready when we’ve had enough.

How the Government funds lobby groups to lobby it for money

What have the following groups all got in common?

Bath & North East Somerset Racial Equality Council
Black & Minority Ethnic Carers Support Service

Gypsy/Travel Education & Information Project North East (GTEIP)

You got it – they’re all paid for by you, the taxpaying fools, among a list of 286 organisations funded by your generosity this year, thanks to that £80 million super-quango, the Equality and Human Rights Commission.

If the next government is serious about ridding our country of what is now quite a serious corruption problem, it could start with the EHRC, which is not just an expensive waste of money but a menace both to race relations and transparent government.

Many of the groups on the list are perfectly harmless: there’s nothing wrong with them, provided they are paid for by private individuals.

But the dividing line between charity and lobby group is always grey, and some of the charities listed are explicitly political – and even have considerable influence on Government policy. In some cases the taxpayer pays for a pressure group to lobby the Government to spend more money on funding for pressure groups, among other things. Meanwhile the jobs advertised help to fund newspapers, both national and local, which use their editorial power to support this quangocracy and slander any critics as racists or homophobes.

What we’re left with is a socialist negative feedback loop and a system that exists, as it was once said about both the French aristocracy and the Soviet Communist party, solely in order to exist.

Soya alert over cancer and brain damage link

Source:, Sunday 13 August 2000

A fact sheet on the side effects and GMO techchnology of soya can be found at the Institute of Food Research information

A health warning was sounded last night over the dangers of eating soya after two senior American government scientists revealed that chemicals in the product could increase the risk of breast cancer in women, brain damage in men and abnormalities in infants.

The disclosure, which sent shockwaves through the multi-billion dollar food industry, came after the scientists decided to break ranks with colleagues in the US Food and Drug Administration and oppose its decision last year to approve a health claim that soya reduced the risk of heart disease. They wrote an internal protest letter warning of 28 studies revealing toxic effects of soya.

In an interview with The Observer, one of the scientists, Daniel Doerge, an expert on soya, said: ‘We have very real worries that this health claim will be used by the industry as an endorsement of much wider health benefits to soya beyond the heart. Research has shown a clear link between soya and the potential for adverse effects in humans.’

BSE and other health scares related to meat have led to rocketing sales of soya-related products in Britain. But it is not just vegetarian foods such as tofu that use soya. It is a key ingredient in products from meat sausages and fish fingers to salad creams and breakfast cereals.

The concerns of Doerge and fellow FDA researcher Daniel Sheehan focus on chemicals in soya known as isoflavones which have effects similar to the female hormone oestrogen.

While these chemicals may help to prevent a range of conditions including high cholesterol, they also lead to health problems in animals including altering sexual development of foetuses and causing thyroid disorders. Although soy is thought to protect against breast cancer, some studies show that chemicals in soya may increase the chances of breast cancer which uses oestrogen-type hormones for growth.

Their letter to the FDA seen by The Observer states: ‘There is abundant evidence that some of the isoflavones found in soy demonstrate toxicity in oestrogen sensitive tissues and in the thyroid. Additionally, the adverse effects in humans occur in several tissues.

‘During pregnancy in humans, isoflavones per se could be a risk factor for abnormal brain and reproductive tract development.’

This will frighten mothers who increasingly use soya milk for babies. Doerge said: ‘They are exposing their children to chemicals which we know have adverse effects in animals. It’s like doing a large uncontrolled and unmonitored experiment on infants.’

The soya industry insists that most research shows the health benefits of soya outweigh risks and that adverse effects seen in animals do not apply to humans.

Richard Barnes, European director of the US Soy Bean Association, said: ‘Millions of people around the world have been eating soya for years and have shown no signs of abnormalities or disorders.’

In a sobering holiday interview with C-SPAN, President Obama boldly told Americans: “We are out of money.”

C-SPAN host Steve Scully broke from a meek Washington press corps with probing questions for the new president.

SCULLY: You know the numbers, $1.7 trillion debt, a national deficit of $11 trillion. At what point do we run out of money?

OBAMA: Well, we are out of money now. We are operating in deep deficits, not caused by any decisions we’ve made on health care so far. This is a consequence of the crisis that we’ve seen and in fact our failure to make some good decisions on health care over the last several decades.

So we’ve got a short-term problem, which is we had to spend a lot of money to salvage our financial system, we had to deal with the auto companies, a huge recession which drains tax revenue at the same time it’s putting more pressure on governments to provide unemployment insurance or make sure that food stamps are available for people who have been laid off.

So we have a short-term problem and we also have a long-term problem. The short-term problem is dwarfed by the long-term problem. And the long-term problem is Medicaid and Medicare. If we don’t reduce long-term health care inflation substantially, we can’t get control of the deficit.

So, one option is just to do nothing. We say, well, it’s too expensive for us to make some short-term investments in health care. We can’t afford it. We’ve got this big deficit. Let’s just keep the health care system that we’ve got now.

Along that trajectory, we will see health care cost as an overall share of our federal spending grow and grow and grow and grow until essentially it consumes everything…

SCULLY: When you see GM though as “Government Motors,” you’re reaction?

OBAMA: Well, you know – look we are trying to help an auto industry that is going through a combination of bad decision making over many years and an unprecedented crisis or at least a crisis we haven’t seen since the 1930’s. And you know the economy is going to bounce back and we want to get out of the business of helping auto companies as quickly as we can. I have got more enough to do without that. In the same way that I want to get out of the business of helping banks, but we have to make some strategic decisions about strategic industries…

SCULLY: States like California in desperate financial situation, will you be forced to bail out the states?

OBAMA: No. I think that what you’re seeing in states is that anytime you got a severe recession like this, as I said before, their demands on services are higher. So, they are sending more money out. At the same time, they’re bringing less tax revenue in. And that’s a painful adjustment, what we’re going end up seeing is lot of states making very difficult choices there…

SCULLY: William Howard Taft served on the court after his presidency, would you have any interest in being on the Supreme Court?

OBAMA: You know, I am not sure that I could get through Senate confirmation…


Now demoralised police are sent on LITTER patrols in bid to hit performance targets

Source:, 15th May 2009
By: Daily Mail Reporter

Police have been ordered to go on litter patrol in a bid to boost the number of people nicked for minor offences.

Officers will be forced to ditch their uniforms and go out undercover in plain clothes in an attempt to hit performance targets.

However cops are furious over the move – because they don’t even have the powers to issue on-the-spot-fines.

Instead,they will have to radio a PCSO – a lower ranking officer –  to attend
the scene to slap the offender with a £50 to £80 penalty
Home Office rules state that only PCSOs and council officers can issue such fines.

The crackdown is being run by North Wales Police where year-on-year serious crime statistics have rocketed.

As well as pulling up more people for littering, officers have also been told to be on the look out for people allowing their dogs to foul the pavement.

PC Richard Eccles, the General Secretary of the North Wales Police Federation, said that officers ‘felt like plonkers’ catching offenders
and then having to wait for a PCSO.

He said that, in a bid to hit performance targets, police chiefs from the Association of Chief Police Officers (ACPO) even went out on the streets themselves to take photos of ‘evidence’.

They the called a meeting with officers and used the pictures to justify the crackdown.

Police officers feel like plonkers collaring litterers and then having to wait for a PCSO to come and issue the fine

The officer also revealed that despite Home Secretary Jacqui Smith announcing a reduction in targets and performance indicators, police in North Wales were still told to ‘up their game’

He said: ‘The Home Secretary was talking about removing some of the targets and performance indicators at the conference, but as she was speaking a colleague received a Blackberry message saying he had to make sure his team issue 200 tickets for littering by the end of 2009.’ 

PC Eccles said officers were ‘fed up’ dealing with minor crimes which he says should ‘be dealt with by the council’.

He added: ‘My opinion is that we should be more focused on more serious crime like burglaries, violent crimes and theft rather than being tasked with offences more suitably dealt with by the local council.

‘The ACPO team are focused on detection rates that the public do not care about.’

Compared to the same period last year violent crime in North Wales has increased by 18 per cent, burglaries have risen by nearly 8 per cent and robberies have rocketed by an amazing 115 per cent.

PC Eccles’ concerns were backed up by Brian Rowlley, a constables’ representative for South Wales Police, who said that PCs were fighting amongst themselves to get a ‘collar’ to make sure their personal performance targets were met.But PCSOs will need to be radioed to issue on-the spot fines (file pictures of PCSOs on patrol in Oxfordshire)

Mr Rowlley, an intelligence officer from Cardiff, said that some officers even withheld intelligence from colleagues to ensure they could claim the arrest.

Mr Rowlley said: ‘There is a culture of sanction detections in South Wales Police, where officers fight one another to make arrests.  

‘There is a race to make arrests and they keep everything to themselves. They do not share intelligence.

‘You will have two or three officers at an incident and they will be talking to the suspect and then another person will step in and arrest that suspect. That is normal now.

‘Officers will not identify a suspect because they fear that other officers will step in and arrest that suspect. This is not limited to South Wales Police, this is a national problem.’ 

Giving a real life example of the problems target-chasing causes, Mr Rowlley said he once witnessed a PC refusing to name a suspect in a wounding case to his sergeant because he was afraid he wouldn’t be credited with the bust.

Mr Rowlley said: ‘I was in a police station where a sergeant asked the PCs what they were working on.  

‘One said: “I have got a section 18 wounding.” The sergeant asked: “What is their name?” The PC said “I am not telling”.

‘The sergeant asked why and the PC replied: “Because I am going to court in the morning and when I get back one of these guys [his colleagues] will have nicked my prisoner.” 

One North Wales bobby, who didn’t want to be named, said: ‘It’s embarrassing. I’m sick and tired of the performance culture and having to justify to law abiding members of the public as to why they are getting a ticket.  

‘They are easy targets to achieve when what we should be doing is targeting the real criminals who are getting fat on the proceeds of crime and drugs.’

Assistant Chief Constable David Morris, of South Wales Police, said an investigation was underway to find out about alleged ‘in-fighting’ between police determined to get credit for an arrest.

He said: ‘South Wales Police, like all UK forces, has targets to ensure we reduce crime such as burglary, violent crime, and car crime, in order to maintain public safety.

‘Our efforts over the last 12 months have enabled us to reduce crime which is evident in the latest Home Office figures which show that there has been an overall 7.6 per cent reduction in crime.

‘Likewise chances of becoming the victim of a burglary today in South Wales compared to 1991 have halved, while 18 years ago people were three times more likely to be a victim of car crime.

‘At a local level, police federation representatives meet regularly with senior officers in Cardiff to discuss and resolve any issues or concerns.’

He added: ‘South Wales Police maintains its vision of keeping South Wales safe and we will continue to work hard to drive down crime levels even further.’

'Tony Blair covering up paedophile scandal?'


‘Blair covering up paedophile scandal?’

While British Prime Minister Tony Blair is under criminal suspicion in the “honours-for-cash” scandal that has rocked his Labour government, we have been told that there is an even more explosive scandal that Blair, up to now, has managed to hide behind the draconian British policy of issuing “D-Notices,” government orders that prohibit the British media from reporting on certain “national security” cases.

In 1999, an international investigation of child pornographers and paedophiles run by Britain’s National Criminal Intelligence Service, code named Operation Ore, resulted in 7,250 suspects being identified in the United Kingdom alone. Some 1850 people were criminally charged in the case and there were 1451 convictions. Almost 500 people were interviewed “under caution” by police, meaning they were suspects. Some 900 individuals remain under investigation. In early 2003, British police began to close in on some top suspects in the Operation Ore investigation, including senior members of Blair’s government.


However, Blair issued a D-Notice, resulting in a gag order on the press from publishing any details of the investigation. Blair cited the impending war in Iraq as a reason for the D-Notice. Police also discovered links between British Labour government paedophile suspects and the trafficking of children for purposes of prostitution from Belgium and Portugal (including young boys from the Casa Pia orphanage in Portugal).

Tony Blair: stifling investigations of paedophiles in his Labour government.

In the United States, Operation Ore’s counterpart was Operation Avalanche. However, U.S. authorities only charged 100 people out of 35,000 investigated. The international paedophile investigation began when Dallas police and the US Postal Inspection Service raided the offices of Landslide Productions of Fort Worth, Texas and confiscated records on thousands of people around the world who were child pornography customers of the firm. Landslide’s halcyon days as a Fort Worth-based international online marketplace of kiddie porn was during the term of Texas Governor George W. Bush.

WMR has learned that the Bush administration, like that of Blair, is rife with paedophiles in top positions. The paedophile network also extends to the U.S. defense industry, particularly some of the companies that have been involved in the sexual abuse of minors at overt and covert U.S. prisons in Abu Ghraib, Iraq; Guantanamo, Kosovo, Afghanistan, Thailand, and now, at three prisons in Ethiopia.

‘commons clerk on trial after IT find thousands of images of children performing sexual acts’

Tony Blair’s closest confidante’s is a practising paedophile, are even suggesting that this particular scandal, and not Blair’s repeated lies and fabricated reports in regard to Iraq, may well prove the downfall of a government mired in sleaze and corruption.

The Sunday Times is reported to have obtained an FBI list of Labour MPs who have used credit cards to pay for internet child pornography, and Blair has responded by imposing a massive news blackout, failing however to stop the arrest of one of his most important aides, Phillip Lyon.

Lyon used his computer “to pursue his interest and perhaps curiosity in this type of material. He searched for it on the internet and, when found, downloaded it for his delectation later”, said Ms Karmy-Jones.

Lyon, 38, from Stanford le Hope in Essex, denies 12 specimen charges of making an indecent image of a child between October 2001 and April 2002. “It is like a drug, you try one and you want to try something harder, and it has a snowball effect,” he is alleged to have told officers when arrested.

Lyon worked in the Upper Table Office, where he met MPs, the Speaker, and Deputy Speaker while checking parliamentary questions and administering early day motions. “He needed skills in computing and the internet,” said Ms Karmy-Jones. “He is an intelligent individual, and knew full well what he was doing.” When first interviewed, he allegedly told police he did not distribute material – “I just look at pictures.”

Ms Karmy-Jones told jurors: “This case is about child pornography – what others might call photos of child abuse. When I say child abuse, it may sound harsh, but it is the nature of these images which is central to the case. They are unpleasant and disturbing.”

She said the issue might be whether it was Lyon who downloaded the images. “We say it is clear he was that man.”

Under Blair’s government paedophiles get off with a slap on the wrist ‘Proof’

There is a lot more here that is being exposed. We already know about Lord George Robertson’s (ex UK Defence Secretary 1997/98 and Sec Gen of Nato) links with Thomas Hamilton (Dunblane), procurer of young boys and a massive British  establishment (Masonic) cover up.

Blair government insider Lord Robertson has threatened to sue Scotland’s leading independent newspaper over internet allegations that he not only used his influence as a Freemason to procure a gun licence for child killer Thomas Hamilton, but was also a member of a clandestine paedophile ring reportedly set up by Hamilton for the British elite. On 13 March 1996, Hamilton, armed with four hand-guns, opened fire on a junior school class, killing 16 children and one teacher before turning the gun on himself, shattering forever the idyllic 13th century Scottish town of Dunblane. Lord Robertson was the referee on Thomas Hamilton’s shotgun licence. [FACT]

Blair government, which has already issued a D-Notice to gag the press from revealing the names of known paedophiles within the British executive, including at least two senior ministers; and the case highlights the government’s NATO boss and Blair government insider Lord Robertson has threatened to sue Scotland’s leading independent newspaper over internet allegations that he not only used his influence as a Freemason to procure a gun licence for child killer Thomas Hamilton, but was also a member of a clandestine paedophile ring reportedly set up by Hamilton for the British elite.

Tony Blair’s closest confidante’s is a practising paedophile, are even suggesting that this particular scandal, and not Blair’s repeated lies and fabricated reports in regard to Iraq, may well prove the downfall of a government mired in sleaze and corruption. The Sunday Times is reported to have obtained an FBI list of Labour MPs who have used credit cards to pay for internet child pornography, and Blair has responded by imposing a massive news blackout, failing however to stop the arrest of one of his most important aides, Phillip Lyon.

The latest allegations came to light following a campaign to lift the secrecy on the Dunblane massacre. Large sections of the police report were banned from the public domain under a 100-year secrecy order. Lord Cullen, an establishment insider, also omitted and censored references to the documents in his final report. Parents and teachers were advised to concentrate their efforts on a campaign to outlaw handguns instead of focusing on how the mentally unstable Freemason, already known by the police to be a paedophile, had obtained a firearms licence for six handguns. Hamilton allegedly enjoyed good relations with both local Labour luminary George Robertson and Michael Forsyth, the then Scottish Secretary of State and MP for Stirling. Forsyth congratulated and encouraged Hamilton for running a boy’s club. Hamilton was also found to have exchanged letters with the British monarch, Queen Elizabeth.

Now where in this is there a national security risk so great, that documents part of the public enquiry are now state secrets to be held for 100 years? Funny kind of public enquiry. Why, when Thomas Hamilton’s application for a gun licence was turned down, due to him being regarded as a man of unsound character [and] him being the object of several paedophilia investigations, did his MP, our friend George Robertson (now Lord Robertson, Secretary-General of NATO), write him a glowing character reference, and personally see to it that his application was successful, when he knew the grounds for the original refusal were because he was suspected of procuring boys for sexual services?”

Dunblane may have been a long time ago, but the questions still loom, that have to be answered.

1.No proper Autopsy and no inquest on Hamilton?

2. Reasons unknown – Shoots Kids? – was he a scape goat to get rid of evidence of a paedophile ring of MP’s and Mason’s in Scotland? – there seems to be mounting evidence to prove this theory.

3. Receives Shotgun Licence even though he was turned down by normal channels – Why was Lord Robertson not prosecuted for refereeing his application?

4. Why did he shoot himself with a different gun from the one he shot the kid’s with, even though the first gun still hand rounds in it? – strange to say the least.

These and many more questions, still remain unanswered.

Alleged Paedophiles at Helm of Britain’s War Machine, Massive Cover-Up

By: Mike James

A child-sex scandal that threatened to destroy Tony Blair’s government last week has been mysteriously squashed and wiped off the front pages of British newspapers.

Operation Ore, the United Kingdom’s most thorough and comprehensive police investigation of crimes against children, seems to have uncovered more than is politically acceptable at the highest reaches of the British elite. 
In the 19th of January edition of The Sunday Herald, Neil Mackay sensationally reported that senior members of Tony Blair’s government were being investigated for paedophilia and the “enjoyment” of child-sex pornography:

“The Sunday Herald has also had confirmed by a very senior source in British intelligence that at least one high-profile former Labour Cabinet minister is among Operation Ore suspects. The Sunday Herald has been given the politician’s name but, for legal reasons, can not identify the person.

There are still unconfirmed rumours that another senior Labour politician is among the suspects. The intelligence officer said that a ‘rolling’ Cabinet committee had been set up to work out how to deal with the potentially ruinous fall-out for both Tony Blair and the government if
arrests occur.”

The allegations are the most serious yet levelled at an administration that prides itself on the inclusion in its ranks of a high quota of controversial and flamboyant homosexual men, and whose First Lady, Cherie Blair, has come under the spotlight for her indulgence in pagan rituals that resemble Freemasonic rites. Unconfirmed information also suggests that the term “former Labour Cabinet minister” is misleading and that the investigation has identified a surprisingly large number of alleged paedophiles at the highest level of British government, including one very senior cabinet minister (known to Propaganda

The Blair government has responded by imposing a comprehensive blackout on the story, effectively removing it from the domain of public discussion. Attempts on the part of this journalist to establish why the British media has not followed up on the revelations have met with a wall of silence. Editors and journalists of The Times, The Daily Telegraph, The Guardian, The Independent, The Sunday Times, The Observer, The Sunday Telegraph, The Daily Mail, The Daily Express, The Mirror, The Sun, the BBC, Independent Television News and even The Sunday Herald have refused to discuss the matter.

Speaking from London, freelance journalist Bob Kearley told me: “Whether or not a D-Notice has been issued is not clear. But based on some of the feedback I’ve been getting it’s apparent that editors and media owners have voluntarily agreed not to cover the story at this time. Operation Ore is still being reported, but not in regard to government ministers, and it’s taking up very few column inches on the third or fourth page. Don’t forget that the intelligence services are involved here, and Blair is anxious to ensure that the scandal does not rock the boat at a time when the country is about to go to war.”

“You can imagine the effect this would have on the morale of troops who are about to commit in Iraq. In fact morale is reportedly quite low anyway, with service personnel throwing their vaccines into the sea en route to the battlefront and knowing how unpopular the war is with the British people. And a lot of squaddies I’ve met think there’s something weird going on between Bush and Blair. If you’re then told that the executive responsible for the conduct of the war is staffed by child-molesters … well, then Saddam suddenly looks like the sort of bloke with
whom you can share a few tins [beer].”

[In an E mail to Paul Joseph Watson, Mike James identified his sources as “people I knew in London who used to work for the Treasury department throughout the 1980s, one being a private secretary at a senior level….my sources will definitely refuse to support my claims – both are doing extremely well financially and career-wise.”]


The Guardian man at Bilderberg: Six days to lost innocence

Policeman Charlie Skelton grappled with on the Bilderberg trail

Thanks to my needing the loo in the department of government security, I’ve finally found out what’s been happening to me; why my world has turned 16 shades of meatball since stumbling six days ago into the mad, bad and dangerous-to-know world of Bilderberg. My story is over. Here’s how it ends …

* * *

The meeting has been airless and fruitless. It has been the usual “How you know these are policemen?” and “Do you have the numbers of the motorbikes?” – the same old belittling of my word and my intelligence.

I explain again: “The detective at Omonioa police station told me that the two men following me, the two men I fought with in the metro station, were police officers. He said …,” and here I flip open my reporter’s notebook, the one I found randomly in the street yesterday, my talisman, and read the quote: “‘They are police. They are just doing their job, nothing else.’ These men were the ones giving orders to the men in uniforms. And I was detained, even though I was the one who called the police. Can you tell me what is going on?”

“We have no information.” I turn to the captain’s colleague. Same face. “We know nothing about this incident.” I’ve barely sat down and they “know nothing about this incident”. I ask them directly: “How do you know that you know nothing?”

“We are the department that … we look after the state, the government.”

“You protect politicians, government buildings?”

“Exactly. As a department we are interested mostly with anarchism and the people who do illegal actions. But of course, we don’t know all the anarchist people …”

So why have I been sent here? Why this department in particular? To the Ypodieftinsi Kratikis Asfalias – the department of government security? I ask them directly: what is my status here in Greece, what happens when they look up my name, am I a criminal? The deputy answers: “Only if you do a crime do you have a record. If you have not done a crime in Greece or in your home country you do not have a record. It is illegal to keep personal information on European citizens.” That’s comforting.

I ask again why I am being followed. I ask him if he thinks it’s a problem that I’ve been so threatened by people following me around Athens that I took a cab to my own embassy. “No, I don’t think you have a problem. They only follow you to see where you are going. I think they don’t want to harm you. And if they do want to harm you, I’d sooner they don’t do that in Athens.” His words. Written in my notebook.

“They follow you from police station to police station. They know that you have informed police that you are threatened. They are more careful now.” Glad he can see so clearly into the minds of the men (certainly not policemen, of course) who’ve been chasing me around.

I show him the photo I took of the man I grappled with in the metro station. The one whose partner shoved me about and forgot that he wasn’t a police officer, pointing into the little metro police office, screaming at me “Get in here! Get in here!” and marching in ahead of the uniformed officers. In charge. I ask the captain if he recognises the man. “No.”

I show him another photograph, of a man I saw coming out of this building, yesterday, when I came to arrange an appointment. He was one of the pair who arrested me the second time in Vouliagmeni, for taking photographs of car wheels. We recognised each other and laughed as we passed. I took his photograph. I showed the photograph to the officers. Bless them, they couldn’t help but smile. Hands wiped across mouths to become stern. Glad they’re taking this in such good spirits. “So you recognise him?” Serious faces now. “He reminds me of someone I know, but … no … I don’t know him.” They’re quoting me lines from bad movies.

It’s going nowhere. I get the address of another police department, get the captain’s name, and ask his advice. I could use it. “Here in Greece we have a saying, we hold a small basket to anything we hear and to anything we see. I do not have big expectations for your situation.”

The interview is over, I’ve been successfully stonewalled, nothing confirmed, nothing certain. The cloak of Bilderbergian darkness still envelops me. I’m going to go to the Acropolis and scratch rude words in a pillar or something. Anarchist that I am. But first, I need the loo. And at this point, the captain makes his big mistake. He lets me go. And everything changes.

I am led along the sixth-floor corridor to the lavatory. And there, standing there – bam – right in front of my eyes, is one of the men who’s been following me around Athens. The one who tailed me here on the first day. The one who I gave the slip to in my stairwell, and then quietly watched as he stood at the edge of the museum park, scouring the tourists. He was looking anxious. I waved cheerily when he finally spotted me. It was him. It was proof. Everything up until now could be fudged, denied, explained away, attributed to coincidence or paranoia, but not this.

I think he was as shocked to see me as I was to see him. He didn’t know what to do, so he literally ran off. He ran away, into his office. I darted after him – what was I doing? I was yelling, I was pointing: “Here! One of the men! One of the men who’s following me!” I whistled to the captain up the hall: “In here, he went in here!”

It was absolute, unbridled mayhem. Detectives came into the hall, people were shouting, I was led back up the hall. I was FUMING. I was shaking. I was angrier than I’ve ever been in my life. All I’ve been, all along, is lied to. Harassed and lied to. And I only caught them out because of an extra cup of coffee at breakfast.

The captain was in a tizz. “Wait here, we sort this all out now.” Mutterings from next door. A minute later and I’m ushered into the boss’s room. The chairs were plumper, the TV screen showing Eurovision highlights was bigger, and he was fatter. “Sit down.” I sat.

“What’s your problem?”

“I think you know what my problem is.”

“There is no problem.”

“I saw a man, up the hall, in the lavatory. One of the men who has been following me.”

He looks me deep in the eye, not a blink.

“There was no man. You did not see any man.”

My mouth actually fell open. I looked at him open-mouthed. There were no words. Again, it was just “an idea in my mind”. I had imagined it all. I’d encountered a phantom taking a leak.

“Close your mouth. It is rude to sit like that with mouth open.”

I wasn’t blinking either as I said: “It’s rude to lie.”

“There was no man.”

“Shall we go and ask him? He is just up the corridor.”

“You go now.”

“And that’s the best you can do?” I looked around at the captain; at his colleague. “This is crazy.”

“To you it is crazy. Not to me.” He started punching numbers into his phone, it was over. “I have a job.”

“I have a job, too.”

But you know, it didn’t matter what he said. I have been stalked and harassed by Greek government security, I have hidden from them in stairwells, challenged them in the street, tried to arrest them, and been lied to by them. The Greek prime minister, Kostas Karamanlis, was a delegate at Bilderberg 2009, and the special government security department of his police force has been protecting him from me. Protecting the dignitaries from a sort of journalist. A dangerous man. I wonder how much it all cost. How many thousand euro. I bet Greek taxpayers would love to know.

I haven’t had time to reflect yet. This is me writing off the top of my head in a nice populous cafe attached to my hotel. Lots of people around. I’m too tired and baffled to think any more. I may not know a whole lot more about what went on at this year’s Bilderberg, but I know what went on up the road, and further still, in Athens’ city centre. I came to make a few cracks about Bilderberg and ended up getting sledgehammered in the nuts.

I tell you one thing: they’re not very good at their job (unless their job was to freak me out). If I was the Greek prime minister I’d be out looking for better spooks. How about Avion? We know they were at Bilderberg, why not extend their contract …?

Right now, all I want to do is to go home. I’m sitting here scared to go to the loo. I don’t like the look of the stairs. I’m thinking of giving the bellboy €20 to stand outside while I pee. When I filled out my report in Sintagma police station, with the nice captain, he was obviously using the wrong paperwork because there was a box where it said: “Name of item lost.” It was a lost property form. I wrote “innocence”.

Thursday 14 May 2009

You know your day’s gone badly when it ends with you being shouted at in a Greek police station.

It wasn’t meant to end this way. I’d gone for a gentle sunset walk, up by the Bilderberg hotel, to relax before the big opening day of the elite globalist shindig, watch Phoebus plunge headlong into the western sea, and (yes) maybe sneak a couple of short-lens pictures of the mounting security.

Opposite the hotel gates I took a casual photo out over the bay, limbering up to swivel round and snap off some naturalistic “armed guard having fag and chatting up policewoman” sort of shots. A plainclothes officer jogged across the road and got in my face.

“No photos.”

“Of the sea?”

“Give me your camera.”

“I don’t understand.”


“I’ve got my Oyster card”.


“Driving licence?”

He takes my licence. A group of policemen have sauntered over, and mutter Greekly about the enormous threat to the smooth running of Bilderberg I seem to represent.

“What is this?” asks one of the local militia. He takes my notebook. Opens it at random.

“What are you writing? What here?”

He points to an old 8 Out of 10 Cats joke (well, barely) about what would happen if we had a female Doctor Who. He jabs at it, proof, in black and white, of my status as an agitator. I read it out: “I’m not saying we’ve already had a female Doctor Who, but Sylvester McCoy put cracks in the glass ceiling.”

“Who is this? Syl… Syl…”

“Sylvester McCoy.”

“A friend of yours? He is staying here?”

I bite back telling them that Sylvester McCoy is a noted anti-globalist freedom fighter who is here to lead the people’s revolt against Bilderberg’s liberty-stripping agenda. “It’s nothing. Can I have my book back?”

They confer. An imp in my brain tells my hand to reach for my camera and take a photo. Click. Whir. At which point, on a gorgeous May evening on the Athens Riviera, began one of the more stressful hours of my life. Hands went to holsters.




Over came the man with the machine gun. Over came the man with the special mirror-on-a-stick for car bombs. It was the first time in my life, and hopefully the last, that I’ve been intimidated by a mirror on a stick. They circled round me. One of them, the one in the photo with one hand up and the other on his pistol, kept prodding me in the shoulder, and shouting: “Give the camera! Just give the camera!”

All around me: “Delete! Delete photos!” followed by a lame tug of war for the camera with no great self-belief on either side, which I won. Camera back in pocket.

Then it became: “Get in the car!” Get in the car!” I wasn’t about to get in the car. I remember saying: “One of you has a machine gun, you’re shouting at me, I don’t understand why, I took one photograph, this all seems a bit strange. What’s going on here?”

One of the nicer policemen, who looked a bit like the short guy from LA Law, the one married to Jill Eikenberry (note to self, update this reference), took me aside. “Very important people coming. Very important. No photograph. Please get in car, we take details, put in computer, you can go.”

I complained, reasonably I think, that they could simply phone my details through to the station, and check that I wasn’t wanted on three continents for acts of terror, but they were having none of it. Prod, prod, prod. Eventually I got in the car. I had to.

They drove me to the police station. Other cars followed. At the station, officers gathered from all quarters. They’d sniffed an incident. A dozen of them stood round me. The Greek chorus reached full voice: “Give the camera! Delete photos! You understand?!” I hated my hands for trembling when I wrote down my father’s name so they could look me up on “computer”. But at least I got a chuckle hearing them try and pronounce Melvyn.

One of the policewomen smiled. “Delete photos and you can go, no trouble.” She looked like Christina Aguilera’s slightly butch cousin and I fell on her smile with a thirst. Nearly gave her the camera. Understood in a flash the whole good cop, bad cop thing. Kept my camera in my pocket. Smiled back. “I just want you to tell me if I’ve broken the law, and if so, are you arresting me?” God, I sound like a cliché of a protester. Oh god, I’m a protester. What are my rights here?

“Charge me or release me!” is what I didn’t shout. I sat quietly and tried to still my hands in my lap. I smiled at Christina. I was winning.

Suddenly, a “you can go” from the sergeant at the computer. I went. I had my camera. I had my photo. I was free. It was the end of Midnight Express. The Breakfast Club fist in the air. Except that I felt sick and wanted to go to sleep.

I slept. This morning, feeling stronger after a slice of breakfast cake, I think I understand: I was the trouble kicking off. I was the agitation they’d been warned about. Very important people. No mistakes. They were wired, pumped up for confrontation, and my photo had been the spark. It’s why they’d blown up in my face. Important people arriving. No fotografia.

And then it struck me: there really ISN’T any fotografia. There’s none. Not a single member of the mainstream press. Not a single newshound camera on a tripod. Nothing. Nothing is happening here. Nothing to report.

The limousines have started to arrive. Nothing to report.

They’ve closed off an entire peninsula. There are roadblocks. Machine guns. Nothing to report.

This is Bilderberg’s 57th annual meeting. Nothing to report.

Susan Boyle plucks eyebrows! Finally, something to report.

KGB Stasi Nazi Youth Britain – Eight-year-olds recruited as council snoopers

Source:, Sat, 6 Sep 2008

Children aged eight enlisted as council snoopers

Children as young as eight have been recruited by councils to “snoop” on their neighbours and report petty offences such as littering, the Daily Telegraph can disclose.

The youngsters are among almost 5,000 residents who in some cases are being offered £500 rewards if they provide evidence of minor infractions.

One in six councils contacted by the Telegraph said they had signed up teams of “environment volunteers” who are being encouraged to photograph or video neighbours guilty of dog fouling, littering or “bin crimes”.

The “covert human intelligence sources”, as some local authorities describe them, are also being asked to pass on the names of neighbours they believe to be responsible, or take down their number-plates.

Ealing Council in West London said: “There are hundreds of Junior Streetwatchers, aged 8-10 years old, who are trained to identify and report enviro-crime issues such as graffiti and fly-tipping.”

Harlow Council in Essex said: “We currently have 25 Street Scene Champions who work with the council. They are all aged between 11 to 14. They are encouraged to report the aftermath of enviro-crimes such as vandalism to bus shelters, graffiti, abandoned vehicles, fly-tipping etc. They do this via telephone or email direct to the council.”

Other local authorities recruit adult volunteers through advertisements in local newspapers, with at least 4,841 people already patrolling the streets in their spare time.

Some are assigned James Bond-style code numbers, which they use instead of their real names when they ring a special informer’s hotline.

This escalation in Britain’s growing surveillance state follows an outcry about the way councils are using powers originally designed to combat terrorism and organised crime to spy on residents. In one case, a family was followed by council staff for almost three weeks after being wrongly accused of breaking rules on school catchment areas.

It also emerged last month that around 1,400 security guards, car park attendants and town hall staff have been given police-style powers including the right to issue on-the-spot fines for littering, cycling on the pavement and other offences.

Matthew Sinclair, of the TaxPayers’ Alliance, described the recruitment of children as “downright sinister”.

He said: “We are deeply troubled by these developments – they are straight out of the Stasi copybook. There is a combination of ever-stricter rules and ever more Draconian attempts to control people.

“Councils are using anti-terrorist legislation for the tiniest of things, like the people who put out their bins early, and the threats of fines and prosecutions combine to constitute fleecing the people the councils are meant to be serving.”

The increase in surveillance comes at a time when an estimated 169 councils have dropped weekly rubbish collections.

Some local authorities are refusing to collect bins which are placed too far from the kerb, while others are issuing £100 fines to people who fail to comply with recycling rules.

Critics have claimed that councils have stopped prosecuting people for flytipping in favour of pursuing easy targets such as fining people for dropping bits of food and cigarette butts.

In April, Hull council officials fined a young mother £75 for dropping a piece of sausage roll while trying to feed her four-year-old daughter. Sarah Davies, 20, refused to pay and the matter when to magistrates court where it was dismissed.

Doretta Cocks, founder of the Campaign for Weekly Waste Collection, said the use of children by councils was “shocking”.

She said: “What sort of world are we bringing them up in? I think it’s dreadful for neighbour to spy upon neighbour in that way.”

The Daily Telegraph contacted more than 240 councils across England and Wales to ask if they had recruited environmental volunteers.

Of those, 36 or just under one in six, said they had. They included Luton, with 600 volunteers, the highest of any council; Southwark, south London (400) Birmingham (370) Blaenau Gwent (300) and Congleton in Cheshire (300).

Among the “environmental crimes” which the snoopers are asked to report, which vary from council to council, are failure to recycle rubbish, vandalism, graffiti, dog fouling, fly-tipping and abandoned vehicles.

Some councils merely ask recruits to keep an eye out for problems, while others are sent out on patrols. Several of the councils which do not yet use volunteers said they were considering doing so in future.

Many of the town halls said they did not encourage their volunteers to confront offenders or collect evidence, for their own safety.

But Bromley Council in Kent offers up to £500 for information that leads to a conviction.

Crawley Borough Council in West Sussex said its 150 Streetcare Champions were asked to “report on individuals if known”. Bolton Council said its Green Inspectors must “note any relevant information such as registration numbers” if they see criminal activity.

Others, including Fareham in Hampshire and Waltham Forest in east London encourage their volunteers to take photographs of rubbish to help investigations.

Liz Henthorn, 66, a retired nurse who is one of 120 “Street Hawk” volunteers in Enfield, north London, openly describes herself as a “curtain twitcher” but insists she is not snooping on anyone.

She said: “If there is a problem with fly-tipping, general bad behaviour, graffiti etcetera then I ring the Street Hawk person and when I do it is cleared. Enfield has become a lot cleaner because of us curtain twitchers having a look around.

“If you can you report an individual but nobody is going to give their name and address. If you know where that person lives you can say you know who it is but other than that you don’t.”

A spokesman for the Local Government Association, which represents town halls across the country, insisted: “Environment volunteers are people who care passionately about their local area and want to protect it from vandals, graffitists and fly tippers.

“These residents are not snoopers. They will help councils cut crime and make places cleaner, greener and safer.”

Dominic Grieve, the shadow home secretary, said: “In any civilised society the community will engage with the police but it would be plain wrong for young children to be recruited and trained for reward. People want to see the police and other appropriate agencies on our streets catching and deterring offenders.”

Councillor Sue Emment, Ealing Council’s cabinet member for environment and street services, said: “Ealing Council works with participating schools so Junior Streetwatchers can learn how to help our local environment, take pride in their community and have a sense of civic responsibility.

“Organisations like the TaxPayers’ Alliance are fast becoming parodies of themselves and ought to find out about Council schemes before making comments. We feel it is sad that the valuable time these young people are spending on improving the community should be criticised in any way.”

A spokesman for Harlow Council said: “We need to encourage more people to care for their community. If we can encourage people at a young age to do this then they will grow up to respect the environment. Our Street Champions, which is an entirely voluntary scheme naturally, has the backing and support of parents for children to take part in the scheme. The scheme is highly regarded.

“The scheme isn’t just about them reporting environmental problems, they also take part in projects to help them learn new skills and in a wider context, about citizenship.”

MPs’ expenses: Officials colluded over mortgage claims

My own opinion on this serious matter is quiet different to most of Britons I’m afraid.

I’m convinced that this whole matter, even though very disturbing indeed, is brought to our attention for two (for now) reasons.
One is because the Telegraph is a tory rag and two to divert attention from the fact that we’re bankrupt.
Anyway, I hope you’re not surprised that those who made the expenses rules take advantage of them.

House of Commons officials colluded with MPs to let them make inflated claims on their mortgages, leaked internal documents seen by The Daily Telegraph have disclosed.

Parliamentary authorities, overseen by Michael Martin, the Speaker, gave secret permission for some MPs to over-claim for thousands of pounds in home loan interest in deals that led to the systematic abuse of the taxpayer-funded expenses system.

Ben Chapman, a Labour MP, admitted last night that he was allowed to continue claiming for interest payments on his entire mortgage after repaying £295,000 of the loan in 2002.

Over 10 months the arrangement allowed Mr Chapman to receive £15,000 for the part of the home loan which had been paid off. Last night, he said he would not give back the money.

Permission to claim “phantom” mortgage payments is understood to have been offered to several MPs before 2004. It was stopped after Commons officials admitted it should never have been allowed. Michael Martin has been Speaker since 2000 and was therefore ultimately responsible for the arrangements – which has never been independently investigated.

He will make a statement today on the growing expenses scandal after a sustained attempt by MPs to unseat him.

None of the other MPs who have benefited from the phantom mortgage deal have been publicly named or are thought to have been asked to pay back claims. Some MPs who were found to have over-claimed for mortgages were simply invited to “dig out” receipts to cover the illegitimate claims.

The Daily Telegraph has disclosed that two Labour MPs, Elliot Morley and David Chaytor, claimed for mortgages that did not exist. They say the claims were an oversight. Both have been suspended from the parliamentary party and face police investigations.

It is feared that if other MPs were allowed to inflate mortgage claims, with the authority of the fees office, the problem may be far wider and could lead to widespread criminal action.

Lawyers have given warning that simply because the arrangement was within Parliamentary rules does not mean it is legal.

The arrangements – for which the justification is not clear – came to light in the claims files of Mr Chapman, the Labour MP for Wirral South.

Mr Chapman, who has been a ministerial aide, approached the fees office at the end of 2002 to explain that he was repaying £295,939 of the mortgage on his designated second home in Lambeth, south-east London. This reduced the interest payments – met by the taxpayer – from £1,900 to £400 per month.

“By paying off capital I am forgoing interest and investment opportunities elsewhere,” he told the fees office.

He and an official “thus agreed that the mortgage should remain for ACA (Additional Costs Allowance) purposes at the original amount”.

An email between senior officials within the fees office discusses Mr Chapman’s case and discloses that it is not unique. “… I have heard similar arrangements being agreed to in the past,” one said. “Personally, I do not believe that such an arrangement should ever have been suggested.”

Today, it can also be disclosed that a large number of household items such as sofas and dining tables are being bought for MPs’ second homes, as allowed by the expenses rules, but delivered to their main homes, often hundreds of miles away. The fees office rarely questions the anomaly.

The expenses claims of 137 MPs have now been uncovered as part of the Telegraph’s ongoing investigation. Today’s files disclose:

Madeleine Moon, a Labour MP, had thousands of pounds worth of furniture delivered to Wales while designating a London flat as her second home;

Ed Vaizey, a key Conservative ally of David Cameron, had £2,000 of furniture delivered to his London home when his second home was in Oxfordshire;

Ian McCartney, a former Labour Party chairman, spent £16,000 furnishing and decorating his second home but paid it back after the High Court ruled that expenses claims should be published.

Last night, a Commons spokesman declined to comment on Mr Chapman’s case. However, she said: “In October 2003, there was a tightening of the rules for claiming allowances. This was reflected in the 2004 Green Book.”

IMPERIAL, Calif. — Ten minutes into arrant mayhem in this town near the Mexican border, and the gunman, a disgruntled Iraq war veteran, has already taken out two people, one slumped in his desk, the other covered in blood on the floor.

The responding officers — eight teenage boys and girls, the youngest 14 — face tripwire, a thin cloud of poisonous gas and loud shots — BAM! BAM! — fired from behind a flimsy wall. They move quickly, pellet guns drawn and masks affixed.
“United States Border Patrol! Put your hands up!” screams one in a voice cracking with adolescent determination as the suspect is subdued.
It is all quite a step up from the square knot.

The Explorers program, a coeducational affiliate of the Boy Scouts of America that began 60 years ago, is training thousands of young people in skills used to confront terrorism, illegal immigration and escalating border violence — an intense ratcheting up of one of the group’s longtime missions to prepare youths for more traditional jobs as police officers and firefighters.
“This is about being a true-blooded American guy and girl,” said A. J. Lowenthal, a sheriff’s deputy here in Imperial County, whose life clock, he says, is set around the Explorers events he helps run. “It fits right in with the honor and bravery of the Boy Scouts.”

The training, which leaders say is not intended to be applied outside the simulated Explorer setting, can involve chasing down illegal border crossers as well as more dangerous situations that include facing down terrorists and taking out “active shooters,” like those who bring gunfire and death to college campuses. In a simulation here of a raid on a marijuana field, several Explorers were instructed on how to quiet an obstreperous lookout.
“Put him on his face and put a knee in his back,” a Border Patrol agent explained. “I guarantee that he’ll shut up.”
One participant, Felix Arce, 16, said he liked “the discipline of the program,” which was something he said his life was lacking. “I want to be a lawyer, and this teaches you about how crimes are committed,” he said.
Cathy Noriego, also 16, said she was attracted by the guns. The group uses compressed-air guns — known as airsoft guns, which fire tiny plastic pellets — in the training exercises, and sometimes they shoot real guns on a closed range.
“I like shooting them,” Cathy said. “I like the sound they make. It gets me excited.”

If there are critics of the content or purpose of the law enforcement training, they have not made themselves known to the Explorers’ national organization in Irving, Tex., or to the volunteers here on the ground, national officials and local leaders said. That said, the Explorers have faced problems over the years. There have been numerous cases over the last three decades in which police officers supervising Explorers have been charged, in civil and criminal cases, with sexually abusing them.
Several years ago, two University of Nebraska criminal justice professors published a study that found at least a dozen cases of sexual abuse involving police officers over the last decade. Adult Explorer leaders are now required to take an online training program on sexual misconduct.
Many law enforcement officials, particularly those who work for the rapidly growing Border Patrol, part of the Homeland Security Department, have helped shape the program’s focus and see it as preparing the Explorers as potential employees. The Explorer posts are attached to various agencies, including the Federal Bureau of Investigation and local police and fire departments, that sponsor them much the way churches sponsor Boy Scout troops.
“Our end goal is to create more agents,” said April McKee, a senior Border Patrol agent and mentor at the session here.
Membership in the Explorers has been overseen since 1998 by an affiliate of the Boy Scouts called Learning for Life, which offers 12 career-related programs, including those focused on aviation, medicine and the sciences.

But the more than 2,000 law enforcement posts across the country are the Explorers’ most popular, accounting for 35,000 of the group’s 145,000 members, said John Anthony, national director of Learning for Life. Since the attacks of Sept. 11, 2001, and the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, many posts have taken on an emphasis of fighting terrorism and other less conventional threats.
“Before it was more about the basics,” said Johnny Longoria, a Border Patrol agent here. “But now our emphasis is on terrorism, illegal entry, drugs and human smuggling.”

The law enforcement posts are restricted to those ages 14 to 21 who have a C average, but there seems to be some wiggle room. “I will take them at 13 and a half,” Deputy Lowenthal said. “I would rather take a kid than possibly lose a kid.”
The law enforcement programs are highly decentralized, and each post is run in a way that reflects the culture of its sponsoring agency and region. Most have weekly meetings in which the children work on their law-enforcement techniques in preparing for competitions. Weekends are often spent on service projects.

Just as there are soccer moms, there are Explorers dads, who attend the competitions, man the hamburger grill and donate their land for the simulated marijuana field raids. In their training, the would-be law-enforcement officers do not mess around, as revealed at a recent competition on the state fairgrounds here, where a Ferris wheel sat next to the police cars set up for a felony investigation.

Their hearts pounding, Explorers moved down alleys where there were hidden paper targets of people pointing guns, and made split-second decisions about when to shoot. In rescuing hostages from a bus taken over by terrorists, a baby-faced young girl screamed, “Separate your feet!” as she moved to handcuff her suspect.

In a competition in Arizona that he did not oversee, Deputy Lowenthal said, one role-player wore traditional Arab dress. “If we’re looking at 9/11 and what a Middle Eastern terrorist would be like,” he said, “then maybe your role-player would look like that. I don’t know, would you call that politically incorrect?”

Authenticity seems to be the goal. Imperial County, in Southern California, is the poorest in the state, and the local economy revolves largely around the criminal justice system. In addition to the sheriff and local police departments, there are two state prisons and a large Border Patrol and immigration enforcement presence.

“My uncle was a sheriff’s deputy,” said Alexandra Sanchez, 17, who joined the Explorers when she was 13. Alexandra’s police uniform was baggy on her lithe frame, her airsoft gun slung carefully to the side. She wants to be a coroner.
“I like the idea of having law enforcement work with medicine,” she said. “This is a great program for me.”
And then she was off to another bus hijacking.
