Following is public Statement made at 2:10 p.m. Tuesday, Feb. 14, 2012 by Kenneth White, President of Virginia Taxpayers Association, during public comment segment of Nelson County Board of Supervisors regular monthly meeting in Nelson County Courthouse, Lovingston, Virginia:


Mr. Chairman and members of the Board, my name is Glenda Cahoon, 3227 Tye River Road, Tye River, and I am speaking today in behalf of the Virginia Taxpayers Association.  All the words that I will read to your Board have been written and approved by Kenneth White, 93 Shields Gap Road, Roseland, President of the VTA.

First, you need to know that when the Virginia Taxpayers Association zeroes in on a particular General Assembly bill, we have more power than the Virginia governor.

This was spectacularly demonstrated this past Friday, February 9, 2012, when VTA got the House of Delegates Courts of Justice Committee in Richmond to report out unanimously, 16-0, by both all Republicans and all Democrats, a bill stopping enforcement in Virginia of unlawful detainment of U. S. citizens who object to any Obama administration policy.

Significant was that Governor McDonnell had strongly opposed this bill when it was in the Courts of Justice subcommittee, where his fellow Republicans also unanimously supported the bill.

House Bill 1160, sponsored by Delegate Robert Marshall, R-Manassas, certainly the most popular member in the House of Delegates, prevents any agency, political subdivision, employee, or member of the military of Virginia from assisting an agency or the armed forces of the United States in investigation, prosecution, or detainment of a U. S. citizen in violation of the U. S. Constitution or the Constitution of Virginia.

Even before this bill was written, the Virginia Taxpayers Association on January 10, 2012 issued a news release, which you all have seen, sent to all General Assembly members, carried on VirginiaNewsSource,com, Virginia's top news web page, and also reported in detail on Charlottesville Radio WINA Rob Schilling's show, most widely heard broadcast in central Virginia, the first sentence of which stated as follows:

(QUOTE) "The Virginia Taxpayers Association is calling on the General Assembly to pass a resolution preventing seizure and torture of U. S. citizens without a trial 'as provided in the tyrannical and unconstitutional National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) secretly signed by President Obama Dec. 31, 2011,' the VTA said today." (UNQUOTE)

Ever since that time VTA has repeatedly advised General Assembly delegates of the importance of this matter, and now you see the results.  The bill is certainly passing the full House of Delegates, concurrently as this Statement to you is being made, and will also pass the Senate.

Governor McDonnell will have no choice but to sign the bill, even though he does not want to, and even though the latest Quinnapiac poll shows his popularity at record heights.  He can't afford to risk the certain flood of criticism that would hit him if he vetoed the bill.  And note that he has endorsed Mitt Romney for president, who has said he would have signed the terrible NDAA !  So you see the real influence VTA has had on this major issue.

Second, you need to know that even according to establishment news sources, the U. S. government has declared war on American citizens !

The Federal Aviation Administration has announced that 30,000 drones are expected to fill American skies within 10 years, along with airliners carrying passengers.  The drones will be used, along with SWAT teams, to hunt down alleged "terrorists", as the fraudulent so-called "war on terror" is refocused domestically against American citizens objecting to disastrous Obama policies.

Again, the question is asked:  What is the Nelson County Board of Supervisors going to do, in the face of this imminent danger to all your constituents?

You will note that the Charlottesville City Council passed a widely reported resolution January 17, 2012 calling for an end to ground and drone wars abroad, making available billions of dollars for budget purposes in the U. S.

Again, since you are already in violation of your oaths of office, the Virginia Taxpayers Association demands that your Board immediately take obvious action by passing a resolution opposing this new FAA danger to your constituents, to properly protect their lives and safety !

That concludes my Statement.

U.S. citizens are now the primary target of the war on terror

Paul Joseph Watson

With the announcement that 30,000 drones are expected to fill American skies within ten years, the U.S. government has officially declared war on the American people, turning to technology normally used to hunt down insurgents abroad as the whole arsenal of the war on terror is re-focused domestically.

The Federation Aviation Administration said "up to 30,000 drones could be in airspace shared with airliners carrying passengers," reports UPI. Once signed by president Obama, the FAA Reauthorization Act allows for the FAA to permit the use of drones and develop regulations for testing and licensing by 2015.

Some types of surveillance drones are already being used by police departments across the country, including in Montgomery County, Texas, where the Department of Homeland Security recently gave the go-ahead for law enforcement in the United States to deploy the ShadowHawk mini drone drone helicopter that has the ability to taze suspects from above as well as carrying 12-gauge shotguns and grenade launchers.

US law enforcement bodies are already using drone technology to spy on Americans. In December, a Predator B drone was called in to conduct surveillance over a family farm in North Dakota as part of a SWAT raid on the Brossart family, who were suspects in the egregious crime of stealing six missing cows. Local police in this one area have already used the drone on two dozen occasions since June last year.

The DHS also recently announced a plan to spend up to $50 million dollars on a spy system that has been used to hunt insurgents in Iraq and Afghanistan for the purposes of "emergency and non-emergency incidents" within the United States.While preparing the use of surveillance drones against Americans, the U.S. government is also keen to characterize a myriad of behaviors and activities, no matter how normal or mundane, as potential indicators of terrorism, encouraging citizens to spy on each other in a chilling throwback to how people were hired as informants under the East German Stasi.

As part of its Communities Against Terrorism program, the FBI is encouraging business owners from across the spectrum to spy on their customers.

Lists of examples of "suspicious behavior" being sent out to everything from Internet Cafes to tattoo parlors define things like paying for a cup of coffee with cash, buying food in bulk, and showing an interest in online privacy as evidence of potential terrorist activity.

The DHS has also released numerous PSAs that depict routine activities as potential signs of terrorism, including using a video camera, talking to police officers, wearing hoodies, driving vans, writing on a piece of paper, and using a cell phone recording application.

The federal agency attracted much derision last week when it announced that Super Bowl vendors,   including hot dog sellers, had been trained to spot terrorists under the First Observer program.

Even more chilling, the feds have also begun to characterize perfectly legitimate political and economic beliefs as those held by terrorists, effectively denouncing them as thought crimes.

As Reuters reported on Monday, authorities are now treating those who "believe  the  United  States went bankrupt by going off the gold standard" as extremists who are a potential violent threat to law enforcement. The DHS has also previously characterized returning veterans, Ron Paul supporters, gold investors, and people who display political bumper stickers as potential domestic terrorists.

All this serves to underscore the fact that the American people have now been targeted as the number one terror threat in the eyes of the authorities. The state has declared war on U.S. citizens. Not only will they be subject to surveillance and intimidation campaigns, but with the recent passage of the indefinite detention provision of the NDAA, the government has afforded itself the power to hold Americans without trial.
