Urgent - Just Signed NDAA is Bringing Drones to My Hometown! I am furious. Read this news article from Syracuse NY!

I cannot believe that this is happening! We need to get Senator Chuck Schumer OUT!

Washington -- The Air National Guard’s 174th Fighter Wing is a step closer to gaining federal permission to fly unmanned Reaper drones out of its base at Hancock Field, according to U.S. Sen. Charles Schumer.

The National Defense Authorization Act signed into law last week by President Barack Obama allows for the establishment of six national test sites where drones could fly through civil air space.

Schumer, D-N.Y., said Tuesday he pushed for the establishment of six spots, instead of the planned four, to improve the chances that Hancock Field would be included. The 174th Fighter Wing has been trying for almost five years to convince the Federal Aviation Administration to allow flights of the MQ-9 Reaper drones out of Hancock Field.

Good 'ol Schumer

Always making the limelight with his progressive activism.

For a guy who is anti-gun (and yet holds a NY pistol permit--Hmmmm.) he has no problems with military grade weaponry that could potentially be used against American citizens someday, thanks to the NDAA bill.

Fort Drum is only a hop, skip, and jump north of Hancock, so it wouldn't surprise me if they become a satellite base for drones as well. The US border patrol has stepped up activity here near the St. Lawrence river in the last few years, so I expect them to employ drones soon too.

Anyway, there's little hope the drones can be stopped. Too much money is involved with special interests. Welcome to Skynet USA.

Schumer is a traiterous bastard

One of the worst. I live in NY. I know.

welcome to my nightmare

They are building these drones here in North Dakota and they are everywhere, they even used them against people here that had problems with Authority. I can not go camping without seeing them overhead. Both state congressmen voted for the NDAA and our new governor Jack Dalrymple just rejected the Tea Party request for him to be in the Tea Party debate before the election. They are doing what ever they want and could care less what people think.

Get ready for billboards to be put up praising these drones in your sky, they are coming.

I will say only this: "How's yer musquetry?" Get it? Get it?

I probably said too much. (Damned big sis supercomputers!)

But this pisses me off. You bet if this was going to be in my back yard I would be calling my congressman & senators and their brothers and cousins too. Welcome to the police state.

What needs to happen ...

Is people are going have to start a senate run to replace these people who bring this to us. You are going have to start talking to your countrymen and get your self on the ballot. You may not want to, you may not know anything about it, Learn and start reaching out to your countrymen. Congress needs to have new Congressmen. And until people start taking this seriously we are going to have same thing over and over again. How important is this. Important enough to do something about it?

Im sorry

This is an outrage. Now we can see why the federal reserve is helping to kill the economy...So they can bring in crap like this in the name of "Jobs"

I'm here too

From Jordan ny right outside cuse but I go to school in Rochester an this is first I've heard about this but wow up-chuck schumer needs to go..

We can get Senators and Congressmen out

and then they get cushy jobs at defense contractor companies. What we need is to elect Ron Paul and get really serious about it. Everyone do EVERYTHING you can, call, canvass, donate. NOW

I hope

John Conner is paying attention.

SteveMT's picture

I hope

John Galt is also paying attention.

We need to get to Galt's Gulch.

Did anyone see how much they

Did anyone see how much they cost?!

Program cost US$11.8 billion

Unit cost US$154.4 million (est 2011) system includes 4 aircraft (US$30.3 million/aircraft (2011)), ground control stations, and Predator Primary Satellite Link

That's about one quarter TARP!

Added to the debt.

Didn't SU protest this a year or so ago?



Wonderful.. I live in Rochester.. it's starting to hit home. I thought no one cared about WNY and we would be the last ones to see the police state.

No, its reverse.

I am from Buffalo. They are using the excuse of the Canadian border to have the grant money build the surveillance society here.

Buffalo gets all the "test" systems. Communication is another biggie. Our area is one of the highest police state areas.

The people just don't know whats coming...

So, what message

are you going to paint on your roof?

Defend Liberty!

RON PAUL 2012 is what I'm

RON PAUL 2012 is what I'm writing on my roof!

Ron Paul 4 R3VER!

Would be on my roof, though I live in Amsterdam, Holland ;)

Probably no drones in the skies here (yet). The only ones we've got are the politicians, and though there's no doubt around here that most of them are perfect windbags and quite sophisticated airheads, they are still not fully airborne ;)

Kind regs from Amsterdam,

And then they'll gladly make

And then they'll gladly make your house the first test bombing range.

Haha, I always knew my name

Haha, I always knew my name would go down in history somehow!

I'm here too

I'm in Auburn, NY outside of Syracuse and this is f---ing scary!!

I guarantee you..

Schumer is invested in those companies that 'bring high paying jobs'

Semper Fortis

'High paying jobs" ..

.. for him.

Selling drones to local police for domestic surveillance of dissidents.

When his final term is up he pulls the lever and hits the jackpot.

Business as usual for these f*cks ..

I wouldn't doubt it for one

I wouldn't doubt it for one second. That is the name of the game in politics!

I'm ducking too!

I'm in Romulus, NY, right in the middle of Syracuse and Rochester.

I sent a copy to Judge Nap to see if he will put it on his show!

This should be campaign issue

We need 100 people to send this to Drudge Report.
