In pleading with Congress Wednesday against automatic defense budget cuts, Defense Secretary Leon Panetta also warned of another crippling situation like Pearl Harbor. It won’t come in the form of bombers and torpedo planes though but as hackers and worms of the cyber variety with the ability to cripple U.S. infrastructure.
“You said something that just kind of went over everybody’s head, I think, that there’s a Pearl Harbor in the making here. You’re talking about shutting down financial systems, releasing chemicals from chemical plants, releasing water from dams, shutting down power systems that can affect the very survival of the nation. What’s the likelihood in the next five years that one of these major events will occur?”
To this Panetta responded simply by saying that the “technological capability” to send our country into a mode like that of Pearl Harbor in a surprise attack is already available now. Panetta’s references to “the next Pearl Harbor” echo sentiments he shared last year with regard to cyberattacks, according to CNS news.
In June 2011, while being confirmed as Defense Secretary, Panetta said to the panel, “The next Pearl Harbor we confront could very well be a cyber attack that cripples our power systems, our grid, our security systems, our financial systems, our governmental systems.”
Continuing to probe on Wednesday, Graham asked about the risk level, which Panetta said was high, especially as the technology develops and the “will” to use it becomes more apparent.
“I’m very concerned that the potential in cyber to be able to cripple our power grid, to be able to cripple our government systems, to be able to cripple our financial system would virtually paralyze this country,” Panetta said. “And, as far as I’m concerned, that represents the potential for another Pearl Harbor as far as the kind of attack that we could be the target of using cyber.”
Those in the United States — both the government and private industry — are already the targets of thousands of attacks per day, according to Panetta. With that, he notes the importance of improving safety of systems in not only the defense sector but the private sector as well.
Earlier this year, the Cyber Intelligence Sharing Protection Act (CISPA) was introduced as proposed legislation that would put in place the infrastructure for private companies to share information with the federal government on the Internet to help prevent electronic attacks from cybercriminals, foreign governments and terrorists. The Cybersecurity Act of 2012, sponsored by Sens. Joseph Lieberman (I-Conn.) and Susan Collins (R-Maine) was mentioned as well. At this point, CISPA has been passed with bipartisan support in the House and still awaits a Senate vote. The Cybersecurity Act of 2012 has not yet been voted upon.
CISPA has been met with some backlash with those against the proposed legislation saying the language is overly broad and they fear violations of the anti-trust law by the government.
Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Gen. Martin Dempsey weighed in his support of CISPA during Wednesday’s hearing but also said the military is looking to develop “rules of engagement” to respond to cyberattacks and threats, according to CNS News.
Watch CNS’ footage of the dialogue here:
The Pentagon faces cuts of about $500 billion in projected spending over 10 years on top of the $492 billion that President Barack Obama and congressional Republicans already agreed to in last summer’s deficit-cutting budget.
Dempsey said the cuts would mean fewer troops, the possible cancellation of major weapons and the disruption of operations around the world.

The Apocalypse Has Arrived
Posted by truther
The prophesies are many, the prophets legend. Each Age of Man has presaged the events of the future that shall unfold. Mighty civilizations from the Sumerians to the Romans, and powerful seers from the Greek oracles to Nostradamus predicted the arrival of what’s called the Apocalypse in the Bible’s New Testament. What is an ‘apocalypse?’ It’s not theend of the world. The Greek word means an unveiling…of the Truth. The process of unveiling the Truth and the events fulfilling the prophesies are unstoppable…the events are occuring now.
Dawn of the Apocalypse
The unveiling of the Truth leading to the current Apocalyptic events had their origins in the last century.
Psychics predicted a New Age dawning in the early years of the 21st Century and a reawakening of Mankind. Humanity would begin to question the old institutions, the old ways, crippling social structures, and inhibiting lack of intellectual freedom.
Some envisioned the shackles of humanity would be broken…but with the revelations would come economic hardship, political upheaval, and great distress.
The upheavals and uprisings would not be contained only to the human race, but ripple though the Cosmos affecting all of Creation.
Earth changes would be prevalent: mass destruction, geological catastrophes, and a newly violent sun.
But the major indicators of an Apocalypse leading to the dawning of a New Age of greater insight andspirituality, the prophesizers said, would be the unmistakable signs of global economic turmoil, political chaos, the exposure of great hidden evils, and the amazing transformation of science.
Economic turmoil, collapse
Like almost everything else, money and economics is an invention of Man. Various economic systems have their strengths and weaknesses.
Since 2008, few economies in the world have done well. Virtually all the Western countries, and many emerging economies, are floundering. Even China has seen economic troubles erupt during 2012.
Much of the trouble can be traced back to irrational policies, enforced scarcity, political decisions trumping common sense, and the penchant towards command-and-control governmental structure at the expense of individual choices and responsibility.
The crisis has reached such magnitudes that even those with little expertise in economics can see the problem.
Yet these events were predicted long ago and are just some of the signs of the reawakening and the shift towards spiritual insight and lessening of dependence upon a strictly materialistic view of life.
The global economies are continuing to unravel
While there is nothing inherently wrong with materialism (after all, without it everyone would be dead in short order as the world is physical and we are physical beings with material needs), the pendulum has tended to shift too far away from the spiritual side of humans. This dichotomy, the spiritual versus the material sides of humans, has been a battle that stretches back to the beginning of cognitive awareness.
Uncle Same faces economic collapse
Mankind’s basic human nature is encapsuled within the concept of freedom of spirit. The more that freedom is contained and oppressed and suppressed, the more misery populates the Earth.
Part of the Apocalyptic process is revealing the hidden Truths of the global economic structure and giving way to the birth pains accompanying a transition to a better, richer world. It can be a world richer in spirit, wealth, material and emotional happiness, greater and more exciting challenges…and deeper and more universal love.
Political upheaval, chaos
Politics are not exempt from the unveiling of the truth. The political atrocities of the Middle East have been exposed for the world to see.
The Peoples Republic of China has also been exposed for its brutal actions and policies against peaceful religious and political activists.
The Chinese political leaders persecution of Falun Gong is being revealed, as well as the state’s policy of forced labor and concentration camps.
The horrific practice of executing political prisoners deemed as enemies of the State and then harvesting the hapless victims’ organs for State profit is also being denounced by some world leaders and free societies for the despicable and immoral act that it is.
As the condemnation of political tyranny spreads, revolutions, rebellions, insurrection and civil disobedience widens.
Those that sought to create a so-called New World Order founded on fear, surveillance, and oppression are being exposed by factors within various governments, organizations, citizen activists, and mystics out of the mainstream.
The revered shamans of the Americas, the ancient Hopi nation, the wise holy men of the Far East, and the devout Hindu leaders of the timeless Indian sub-continent have shared their uniform vision of events to come and the events they once predicted that have arrived.
Organizations like Anonymous strike fear into world leaders
The evils that have plagued humanity for uncounted centuries are in the process of being exposed like never before in history.
Grass root groups, many controversial, are mushrooming up throughout the political and economic forests of the world. These groups are coming out of the woods and exposing Truth in novel and ingenious ways using high technology to wage their war against those that would be masters.
The evil plots are being exposed all around the world
Some of the most visible movements and groups include people who have risen to the political and economic challenges that have emerged. Among the groups are such diverse political ideologists as the TEA Party and the Occupy forces.
The Apocalypse is turning over the rocks where evil lurks
High tech wizards like Julian Assange and his Wikileaks network, or the borderline anarchists of Anonymous whose symbol is a Guy Fawkes mask, are driving world authorities into a frenzy by exposing devious plots, blatant corruption and secret agreements designed to inhibit individual liberty and free communication between all the peoples of the world.
The brave new world of the Apocalypse has also come to science.
Science is a two-edged sword. It can be a boon for Mankind or used by self-appointed elites to become masters of the world. The scientific method can be utilized to enrich and improve the human condition or create horror weapons like those produced by evil regimes such as Adolf Hitler’s Nazi Germany and Joseph Stalin’s gulag-ridden Soviet Union.
Science unbound, and steered towards the advancenment of knowledge while philosophically driven to move the human race ahead and empower the individual in new ways undreamed of in the past, is the discipline’s greatest purpose.
Science unfettered will lead to the mastery of the self. For with advancing knowledge must come greater self-discipline and accountable responsibility.
The Apocalyse is driving this too as science is beginning to divest itself of the inherent fraud and political trappings that have all-too-often caused it to lose its way.
While the process cannot come fast enough for many people, it is of its very nature a slow, arduous task. No one ever promised an Apocalypse will accomplish all within a few short years. The process can stretch on for decades. But in the end Mankind can be transformed into a better, wiser race. Along the way it will divest itself of some of the insanities that have haunted humans for far too long a time.
The Apocalyptic process of spiritual rebirth and the rediscovery of the roots of Mankind’s innate abilities and powers will break the chains of fear and small-mindedness that have caused society to become infected with a cancer that’s mostly self-inflicted.
Science and reawakened spirituality is shifting the world towards a future that will eventually benefit all men and women of goodwill. But the process is anathema to those that seek to pillage, conquer and subjugate others.
Medical marvels, miracles from the physics laboratory, exploration of the world’s greatest mysteries…all await fruition on the other side of the Apocalypse.
As the veil is lifted more will see the glory of the shining Truths occulted by those that accumulated great power while attempting to crush the spirit of others.
Science will reveal the reality of other dimensions and realities. The nature of death may be discovered. Proof will emerge from the laboratories of the reality of Man’s immortal existence and how every person is a part of the Cosmic All.
Much that’s been considered paranormal or fringe science will begin to be recognized as valid science and incorporated into the growing repository of advancing human knowledge.
Apocalyptic revelations will lift humans from the cradle to their place in the universe.
A spiritual re-awakening and accounting
The Apocalypse brings renewal and fresh starts. All Truth will be revealed as the Cosmos is being cleansed and errors corrected, frauds revealed, injustices rectified.
Truths that were hidden will be revealed; Truths cannot be hidden any longer.
Mankind will change, a celestial accounting take place, because the moral values will change.
For example, fiat money is immoral because it’s not right to charge someone interest on money created from nothing. Money is an invention and abstract that represents a value for a value: a good for another good, or service for another service. Fiat money is valueless and has all the value of The Wizard of Oz’s smoke and mirrors.
It’s even more immoral to raise interest rates and foreclose on property with valueless banknotes that people trade amongst themselves with winks and nods.
World leaders, including Obama, will be outed because they haven’t told the Truth.
The Truth about extraterrestrials will finally be revealed: they’re already here among us.
For millennia humans have sought nirvana, a virtual paradise on Earth. That is a fantasy that can never be for it flies in the face of the nature of Man.
But that fact does not lesson the ability or greatness of a human’s quest to reach beyond his or her self. Nor does it negate the ability to master the inner self and by doing so enable greater wisdom, more freedom, astounding success, and ultimate life fulfillment.
As the spirit awakes and seeks balance with the material, the human adventure will accelerate. Eventually, the mind will create in reality all it can envision, and even then the stars await.
Beyond the stars lies greater Truths and beyond those Truths are still more.
The Apocalypse is here. Do not fear it. Embrace it.

To the disbelief of many of our readers, in a 2011 report titledEverything You Do Is Monitored, we noted that microphones and cameras on cell phones and computers allow interested parties (translated to mean your respective government) to hear and see everything going on in the direct vicinity of the device without the knowledge of its owner.
That these monitoring features are available on cell phones was a known fact, as FBI surveillance networks already have the ability to turn on any cell phone microphone or camera remotely without tipping off the user. It’s believed that thissurveillance technique can work even when the cell phone user has shut down their phone, with the only surefire way to prevent such surveillance being removal of the unit’s battery.
Computers, however, were believed to be secure from these kinds of backdoors, and the majority of computer users believe their PC’s are protected from such intrusive technologies once they install virus and malware protection software.
However, a new virus identified by leading digital security firm Kaspersky Lab, is reportedly capable of not only embedding itself onto computer systems without being identified by traditional anti-virus applications, but able to execute total surveillance and monitoring that includes turning on your camera and microphone, copying your data, and recording emails and chat conversations.
Evidence suggest that the virus, dubbed Flame, may have been built on behalf of the same nation or nations that commissioned the Stuxnet worm that attacked Iran’s nuclear program in 2010, according to Kaspersky Lab, the Russian cyber security software maker that took credit for discovering the infections.
Kaspersky researchers said they have yet to determine whether Flame had a specific mission like Stuxnet, and declined to say who they think built it.
Cyber security experts said the discovery publicly demonstrates what experts privy to classified information have long known: that nations have been using pieces of malicious computer code as weapons to promote their security interests for several years.
Symantec Security Response manager Vikram Thakur said that his company’s experts believed there was a “high” probability that Flame was among the most complex pieces of malicious software ever discovered.
Kaspersky’s research shows the largest number of infected machines are in Iran, followed by Israel and the Palestinian territories, then Sudan and Syria.
The virus contains about 20 times as much code as Stuxnet, which caused centrifuges to fail at the Iranian enrichment facility it attacked. It has about 100 times as much code as a typical virus designed to steal financial information, said Kaspersky Lab senior researcher Roel Schouwenberg.
Flame can gather data files, remotely change settings on computers, turn on PC microphones to record conversations, take screen shots and log instant messaging chats.
Kaspersky Lab said Flame and Stuxnet appear to infect machines by exploiting the same flaw in the Windows operating system and that both viruses employ a similar way of spreading.
“The scary thing for me is: if this is what they were capable of five years ago, I can only think what they are developing now,” Mohan Koo, managing director of British-based Dtex Systems cyber security company.
With a new National Security Agency data center coming online and capable of capturing, aggregating and analyzing every digital communication in the United States, cellphones and computers having in excess of 99% penetration across the country, and some 30,000 drones being prepared for domestic operations, we can safely say that a total police state surveillance infrastructure is now in place and fully capable of monitoring everything - and we mean EVERYTHING – that you do.
The Matrix has you…
May 27, 2012
China, Russia, Brazil, India and other UN members are backing a proposal to hand over regulation of the internet to the UN’s International Telecommunication Union (ITU). The House of Representatives will vote on the measure this week. It is reported that the legislation faces an uphill battle.
The proposal would give the United Nations control over cybersecurity, data privacy, technical standards and the web address system. The present system is operated by a “multi-stakeholder” approach that gives control to nonprofits instead of governments.
Larry Strickling, who heads up the Commerce Department’s National Telecommunications and Information Administration, told The Hill the measure would impose “top-down regulation where it’s really the governments that are at the table, but the rest of the stakeholders aren’t.”
Florida Republican senator Marco Rubio said earlier this month that China and Russia are “not exactly bastions of Internet freedom.” Mitt Romney is considering Rubio as his vice president choice.
Google helped China build an internet firewall that censors what goes in and out of the country. Russia has imposed laws requiring ISPs to implement technology that identifies, tracks and punishes dissidents.
In 2011, then-Russian Prime Minister Vladmir Putin announced his support for an internet takeover by the United Nations and backed the International Telecommunication Union, at the time a little known organization. It is a specialized agency of the United Nations, an extension of the International Telegraph Union established in 1865.
Following Putin’s announcement, a number of authoritarian countries created a document entitled “The International Code of Conduct for Information Security” and submitted it to the United Nations in September 2011.
In April, H.R. 628 was introduced in response to the ITU. The bill states that “it is the sense of the House of Representatives that if a resolution calling for endorsement of the proposed international code of conduct for information security or a resolution inconsistent with the principles above comes up for a vote in the United Nations General Assembly or other international organization, the Permanent Representative of the United States to the United Nations or the United States representative to such other international organization should oppose such a resolution.”
The resolution was referred to committee on April 19, 2012, and has a 28% of passage, according to Govtrack.us, a website that posts information on bills introduced to Congress.
