U.S. military plans method of taking over airwaves

For those of us who cringe at the monthly squeal of the test of the “Emergency Broadcast Alert” which is to alert us of any nastiness that is going down, apparently that is not enough. One has to ask why must the government commandeer all stations? But we have seen this plan before haven’t we? Not enough Obumer? Recall that we have been there, done that and it worked out fine.

The Department of Homeland Security and the Federal Communications Commission held the first nationwide test of the Emergency Alert System. The test occurred at 2 p.m. ET and was carried on all broadcast television, radio stations and cable and satellite television systems in the U.S. and U.S. territories. Wednesday, November 9, 2011.

From Forbes:

If you want to take over a nation, then first take over its airwaves. Broadcast your messages and interdict the enemy’s ability to broadcast theirs. When the U.S. attacked Iraq in 1991, or NATO bombed Serbia in 1999, among the first targets destroyed were TV and radio stations. When there is a military coup in Africa, the first buildings the rebels usually grab are the radio and TV studios.

 Here is a question? Are we going to buy this bad boy from China?
 Prior to initiating the FCT, USSOCOM wishes to identify all firms (both foreign
and domestic) which could provide a non-developmental light-weight,
multi-frequency, simultaneous over-broadcast system that has demonstrated a Technology Readiness Level of 8 or higher.
So it is illuminating that the United States Special Operations Command (USSOCOM), the organization that oversees America’s elite special forces, is quietly searching for equipment that will effectively give it control over every FM and AM radio station in an area. The short, innocuous-sounding announcement on the Federal Business Opportunities site states that SOCOM seeks vendors to provide “a radio broadcast system capable of searching for and acquiring every AM and FM radio station in a specific area and then broadcasting a message(s) in the target area on all acquired AM and FM radio station frequencies.” SOCOM wants equipment that is both lightweight and sophisticated enough to detect and broadcast over multiple frequencies simultaneously. And SOCOM wants it fast. The equipment must be at least Technology Readiness Level 8, a Pentagon measure of technological maturity that means that it is fully developed, tested and ready for use.

    They just keep coming at us with things like this and we are not supposed to think there is something going on? Between this and the attempt to grab the internet it is clear Obama wants to be able to control the information.

    It just isn’t enough to have to hear Dear Leader everytime he farts out another story. Time to get rid of the teevee.

    He just want’s to be sure all his bases are covered before declaring himself a third term. Of course the world’s smartest hag will be pissed.

    Even Nimrod allowed different regions to be called by their own names, but he still ran the show. China’s name becoming more noted in the US is an example of the growing truth of that international connection & interweaving.
    A recent show that discusses some of this in recent events, and what happens to those who oppose it or are kidnapped and used to accomplish its goals: http://youtu.be/2mbPunzndxU

    And they wonder why we don’t trust our government. Maybe it’s because they can’t be trusted. Just a thought…
