ambitious plans for recruiting informants

Hey, the The Nazi Gestapo started out as a volunteer neighborhood informant organization for the government, too. This goes back to 2003:
In a recent telephone interview, Licata said he wants to use CAT Eyes to create what he calls "a modern civil defense network," converting neighborhood watch groups into anti-terrorist informant cells. These groups, constantly watching for signs of terrorist activity in their neighborhoods and workplaces, would report suspicious activities directly to the FBI. Said Licata: "I envision 100 million Americans looking for indicators of terrorism and promptly reporting it to a central database where it would get analyzed.". . .

Licata has few qualms about the prospect of CAT Eyes-trained citizens spying on their neighbors. "If I felt that my neighbor of 10 years was doing fund-raising for a group, I'd turn 'em in," says Licata. After all, he says, the FBI will "just investigate them -- and if you're wrong, you're wrong. And if you're right, that's a big thing!". . .

Even communist East Germany, a tightly controlled society with more informants per capita than either Stalinist Russia or Nazi Germany, was not as ambitious about citizen surveillance as CAT Eyes. In its heyday, the EastGerman secret police, or Stasi, is generally believed to have had about 2 million informers, or about one-eighth of the East German population.
Oh but that would never happen here, right? Americans are freedom-loving people. This goes back to 2002:

In order to sell the community on this program, its creators probably equipped it with convincing propaganda, which is delivered by professionals. Although there has been no official admission that the following federal resources function as recruitment programs for public harassment, they are similar to ones used in German and Russian dictatorships.

The Terrorism Information and Prevention System (TIPS), appears to be a bulked-up version of a community-policing program. Even though TIPS was officially rejected by congress, the American Civil Liberty Union contends that it and similar programs are being used aggressively across the nation. Other programs must have sprung up around the planet because the reported tactics of Gang Stalking in other countries are similar.

But who is the threat? According to some of these documents at, the targets are criminals and terrorists. However, the definition of a terrorist in section 802 of the US Patriot Act is frighteningly vague. Basically it defines terrorism as any action that endangers human life or that violates state or federal law.

An article entitled, US Planning to Recruit One in 24 Americans as Citizen Spies, which appeared in the Sunday Morning Herald on July 15, 2002, provided us with another clue. It stated, "The Terrorism Information and Prevention System, or TIPS, means the US will have a higher percentage of citizen informants than the former East Germany through the infamous Stasi secret police."

The articled revealed that the system is poised to recruit those whose work provides access to homes, businesses, and public transportation systems. Postal workers, utility employees, truck drivers, train conductors and others are to be recruited. On "state and local" levels these informants are to be directed by FEMA. This provides a motive for the reports of people being stalked by 18-wheelers, busses, city, postal, and utility vehicles.


If you really think there's a difference between iWATCH and Stasi, you're a Good American. And I don't mean that in the "nice" way.
The Stasi created a widespread network of civilian informants. These informants were citizens who cooperated with Stasi agents, sometimes in exchange for money or goods. These unofficial informants used their jobs, social influence, and family networks to spy on fellow citizens. Informants were required to report suspicious or anti-government behavior to Stasi authorities. Tips from informants were followed by further agent surveillance or immediate arrest. The Stasi maintained its own network of detention camps and prisons, the most notorious of which was Bauden II. The Stasi garnered a reputation for its use of brutality, torture, and blackmail as routine methods of extracting information and coercing cooperation.

Where Do I Sign Up For The One World Black Helicopter Chemtrail Reptilian Government?

Because I can't WAIT to be one of those guys riding around in the black helicopters and kicking down the doors of winguts in the middle of the night before dragging them off to be waterboarded in our government re-education camps.

Seriously, where do I sign up for my jackboots and truncheons? I'm ready to go apeshit on those fucking assholes. Every regime needs its enforcers and I am ready, willing and motherfucking ABLE!

Also, will I get health insurance?

My neighbor is a smokin' hot blonde with a killer bod.

After reading your article, I think she is some kind of 'terrorist.'

Is it my patriotic duty to peep into her windows, like her bedroom and she what kind of nefarious activity she's up to?

Boy oh boy, please say YES!

Buncha fucking anti-semitic tinfoil hats.

Spoonfed, you must be new to the Web, since you only signed up in October 2009.

Did the Jewish Internet Defense Forces alert you?

Or maybe Megaphone?

Or was it that truth smashing net monster being funded by the Israeli Foreign Ministry?

Just curious.

As long as we're talking about your fav subject, what do you think will happen to the latest Jewish spy caught stealing America's military secrets for Israel?

Do you think Rep. Jane Harman will 'waddle' on in and help free the poor dear?

Maybe Congress will give obviously persecuted guy a few hundred thou for his trouble and an express flight on 'El Al' so he can make 'aliyah?'

Justice Says Scientist Tried to Share US Secrets

In probing Nozette's finances in that case, investigators found indications he might be working for a foreign government, and they launched a national security investigation that eventually led to the undercover FBI sting, the official said. The official was not authorized to discuss details of the investigation and spoke on condition of anonymity.

At the time of the IG probe, Nozette went to court to fight the inquiry. The IG investigation subpoenaed a bank account of Nozette's firm, Alliance For Competitive Technology Inc. A federal judge rejected Nozette's motion to quash the subpoena.

From 1998 to 2008, the complaint against Nozette alleges, he was a technical adviser for a consultant company that was wholly owned by the Israeli government. Nozette was paid about $225,000 over that period, the court papers say.

In January of this year, Nozette allegedly traveled to another foreign country with two computer thumb drives and apparently did not return with them.

Damn good thing he was stealing our military secrets for our only 'friend' in the ME, Israel.

Can you imagine the shit-stir if this fucker was a Muslim?


Hey Spoonfed, maybe you can help me find a link that lists all those nasty Muslims spies that have been caught stealing America's military and business secrets over the past 40 years.

I can find plenty of Israeli spies stealing America's secrets, but damn if I can find a list of those nasty Muzzie spies.

Can you help?

i'm glad people in europe have figured it out. people here are dense as ever. just the other day on facebook some very intelligent social democrat types were pleasantly debating the flu shot and i was the skunk at the garden party. these were the things they cited as reasons for taking the shot: fear, doctors advice, teevee experts, 60 minutes, loving thy neighbor (vaccine mythology), science.

a couple insinuated that it was selfish and/or unpatriotic to refuse the shot, but when confronted with their own attitude acted like they didn't know what i was talking about.

smug people, so sure of their own intelligence, will be the first to die, evidently.
