Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport TSA Freeze Drill Was To Condition Travelers

“STAY RIGHT WHERE YOU ARE! DON’T MOVE!” is the order that was recently barked at travelers in Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport. “You’re supposed to freeze!” was just one of the commands being screamed by TSA agents for no reason other than to begin conditioning of air travelers.

Pavlov had a wonderful dog and he would ring a bell, give the dog a treat and the dog was happy! Pavlov did this for some time before changing his tactic. He would ring the bell, the dog would begin to salivate and then he would not provide a treat. Pavlov conditioned his dog to salivate “on command” when he rang the bell; it’s called CONDITIONING and the TSA wants you conditioned to do whatever they say, whenever they say it.

“Passengers are not required to ‘freeze’ in place like statues,” TSA spokeswoman Kristin Lee admitted. If that is the case then why did their little Code Bravo Sierra or simply Code Bravo drill to begin with? You know for certain that something dirty is going on when the TSA begins lying! Oh wait, they never stop lying, that’s right.

After first admitting to the Phoenix New Times that passengers are kept in the dark over the order to “freeze” or “stop,” TSA spokeswoman Nico Melendez later corrected herself by claiming “I was mistaken earlier. In fact, our TSOs do alert passengers of the drill and thank them for their patience. The exercise usually takes no more than 2 minutes.”

However, this is simply not true.

In the case of the drill at Phoenix Sky Harbor Airport, travelers were not informed of the drill beforehand. In addition, the two drills experienced by NY Times writer Joe Sharkey at different airports were not preceded by a warning.

The government wants the People to be fat, lazy, uneducated and miserable. They need to condition us for the Natzi police state they are preparing for us and drills like this are designed to do just that.

Pentagon Says US Citizens Accused Of Supporting Terrorism Can Be Assassinated

WOW! This is a truly bold move on the part of our government. Now they can not only throw you in jail forever, they can also assassinate you!

A high ranking Pentagon lawyer argued Wednesday that US citizens accused of having ties to terror groups can legitimately be targeted for assassination.

In a speech at Yale Law School, Jeh C. Johnson, the Defense Department general counsel, also said that US courts do not have the right to review such cases, or pass judgment on decisions taken by the Executive branch on such matters.

“Belligerents who also happen to be U.S. citizens do not enjoy immunity where non-citizen belligerents are valid military objectives,” said Johnson.

According to a report in The New York Times, while not discussing detail of last year’s killing of US born Islamist radical Anwar Al-Awlaki, “Johnson invoked a lawsuit filed by Mr. Awlaki’s father before the killing that had sought an injunction against targeting his son, citing with approval a district judge’s decision to dismiss the case and saying that targeting decisions are not suited to court review because they must be made quickly and based on fast-evolving intelligence.”

“Within the executive branch the views and opinions of the lawyers on the president’s national security team are debated and heavily scrutinized, and a legal review of the application of lethal force is the weightiest judgment a lawyer can make,” Johnson said. “And, when these judgments start to become easy, it is time for me to return to private law practice.”

The US government has long operated a policy of targeted killing against so called enemies of the state. However, it is one thing to be carrying out such targeted killings in secret, it is quite another to publicly proclaim such actions as legitimate.

Earlier this month, Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta acknowledged that the U.S. has assumed the authority to conduct targeted assassinations of U.S. citizens on the recommendations of the CIA Director and the Secretary of Defense and pursuant to the President’s authorization.
