Obama Shutting Down Southern Strategic Air Defenses

Not sure if this has been posted on here already, but Obama is now in the process of completely shutting down our southern strategic air defense system...



This is sending the message to every other country in the world that they can now attack us without much effort since we now have no way to defend against low altitude attacks. The completing of this project is around March 15th, so I imagine right after that time is when the SWHTF.

Chinese soldiers in Mexico, Russians in Minnesota--hell, we're probably training them. We train everybody else. And give them rifles and machine guns. Show them how to sight in, perform remedial action and maintain their weapon. How to patrol with situational awareness, hand/arm signals and proper reactions. Physical fitness, dietary choices and lifesaving steps. This is actually going on in Afghanistan, as did so in Iraq.

These aren't "strategic" defenses

They are colossal money-wasters. There's not much in the Air Force budget that gives less bang for the buck than balloons with radars on them.

The Air Force is facing huge budget cuts across the board even before sequestration. Shutting down this useless boondoggle being run as a charity case for Customs and Border Protection is going to supposedly cost "hundreds of jobs" but it will save many millions of dollars, and it won't weaken US air defenses. If NORAD thought the balloons worked for defense against military adversaries, they'd undoubtedly make them a high priority and keep them.

My only problem with Obama and his handling of the Pentagon is that he's not cutting spending enough. We need to close hundreds of overseas bases and shut down all kinds of dubious "defense" systems which are just welfare for contractors as well as zeroing out foreign aid.

Take back the GOP and Restore America Now.

Beware the Ides of March!

Interesting how these all have a deadline of March 15th - the IDES of March. Et Tu, Obama?

Chinese forces will surge northward through Mexico

... as Russian troops pour into bases in Minnesota. Pre-positioned cells of foreign troops will emerge from hiding. This is the real Red Dawn ... Obama is a traitor. True patriots in our military ranks must put a stop to this treason with extreme prejudice. . . . . .

It does seem unusual

That the most militarised, most formidably armed nation in the world would shut down such a strategically important tool?

It's got me quite perplexed. If you had to make defence cuts you would shut down an oversea base not an internal defence tool surely?

I guess you have 'iron dome' capability but it would take time and cost additional funds.

It really doesn't make much sense! And to announce it to the world! The US government has made that many enemies overseas with its rampant drone attacks. Why would they announce such a huge hole in the defence network?

The mind boggles.

The precise reasons for doing such a thing are, at the moment, pure speculations but the act itself is sufficient enough to illicit some potentially disastrous outcomes!


C'mon man. If Obama really is

C'mon man. If Obama really is doing just that, as in shutting down some part of government, that's cause for celebration. Which I'm pretty sure means he's not really doing it.


The constitution calls for the federal government to provide for the common defense. Air defenses are exactly that. If Obama was shutting down defensesive systems and bases in OTHER countries I would be cheering him on. These defenses are within our borders and truly in place to defend against air invasions. This is NOT how you cut defense spending.

Well it is strange that the

Well it is strange that the latest "military exercises" were in the Southern US (Miami and Houston).. Hmmm..

Surveillance system turned inward on the American people.

"An Exelis employee close to the TARS project had this to say about the closure of the sites:

“Not only will this closure mean hundreds of people will be out of jobs, but it also means our borders will not be safe, especially along the remote U.S. Mexico Border like in Texas.

These defense radars detect low flying aircraft infiltrating our borders.

Without these defense radars, low flying aircraft will go undetected.

It will be open season for any drug/gun/slave smugglers, terrorists flying in with nukes, low altitude missiles, or even a full scale low elevation invasion/attack against America.”

With China actively and openly deploying Russian-made low altitude strategic bombers, designing EMP weapons capable of disabling the country’s power grid infrastructure, and establishing economic zones within the United States, it’s difficult to imagine the motivation behind the move to further weaken U.S. air defenses on the southern border.

If September 11, 2001 was any indication of our air defense capabilities, and considering that any ground invasion of the United States would originate on our southern border, then wouldn’t we want as many early warning systems as possible to be actively protecting our country in these specific areas?

The U.S. government has chosen to shutdown this outward facing surveillance system, and has instead turned the surveillance inward, on the American people."

Not enough info

It is possible that they are replacing it with a satellite system or something else. Not saying it is out of the question, just not enough information.

Even if it were true and done with a dark purpose - that still wouldn't be supportive of a charge of treason unless that dark purpose was supported by evidence.

And never forget, if we weren't interfering and provoking other nations, we wouldn't need to worry as much. That is where our focus should lie.

Shutting Off Our Defense/Surveillence Systems?

My guess would be Obama & Co. are replacing it with drones.. but not for OUR protection!

How's that old saying go again?

Something like, 'When the town becomes too much to handle and completely corrupt, you just wall them in and toss in lots of ammo.'

Seems like we're getting walled in and coaxed into buying lots of rounds.

How is turning a RADAR system off treason?

this ISNT just about RADAR

Its about first response missile and warning system. Its about being able to scramble jets at the drop of a hat should something happen. Obama is turning ALL of this off in the southern part of the US. If this were anyone other than our president doing it, it would be considered an act of war, as it is weakening our countries defense, and leaving us EXPOSED to ANY nation that wants to hurl an attack over our border.

I think its strange that this mostly impacts Texas. Also China just recently purchased 600,000 acres of Texas(for drilling they say). Also, add that up with the fact that there are over 1 million Chinese nationals just past the US/Mexican border(wonder how many of them are trained soldiers hmm?), I wouldn't be surprised at ALL if sometime SOON they start removing personnel from border or shut it down all together and let people come and go as they please. This is all adding up to an invasion, and our Liar in Chief is sleeping with the enemy.

Ive heard lots of rumors of

Ive heard lots of rumors of chinese military bases down old MeHeco way. Some interesting "blacked out" areas on google earth. Some interesting videos of chinese troops and movements there too. Looots of American-made firearms headed down there too.

Collapse us from within, disarm us, turn off our early warning signs.

Seems a bit strange.

Is Obama a traitor? irrelevant question. Obama is a puppet. The real question is, what to the puppet masters think of America?

Hmmm... what does the old world banking empire think of the idea of capitalism rising again as the Liberty movment gains strength and the ideas of liberty spread like wildfire? Wasnt it Rothschild who once said that capitalism was the greatest danger to every monarchy on earth?

What happened to Germany when they decided to embrace captialism and industrialise, spreading railroads and free trade across Africa and Asia?

I think it would be unwise for anyone to dismiss the idea that the puppet masters want America stamped from the face of the earth forever. I think they want to crush us militarily as soon as its possible (i.e. once they take our government) Destroy our infrastructure, and then utterly wipe us from the pages of history with lies and progaganda so that no free nation can ever rise to challenge the banking empire again. I wonder if all these FEMA camps will be used as a part of that propoganda? Imagine our great grandchildren reading about the death camps in nazi america after the "heroic allies" rode into crush evil capitalism.

Is it likley? Probably not. That doesn't mean im betting against it.
