I captured the following video today, coincidentally right after making a quick technical adjustment to the We Are Change website. I went outside and out of nowhere an enormous Navy Blimp flew over and began circling overhead. It was equipped with a bunch of camera equipment. Also, my brother informed me about this website for Integrated Systems Solutions, INC. which clearly shows the exactly blimp, as well as some of the “services” they provide.
Anyway, I was able to quickly grab my camera and shoot some footage. Big thanks to infowars.com for covering it (read the article from infowars below video.)

Despite numerous reports to scrap the idea of a drone spy blimp, known as the Blue Devil 2, the airship, seen in videos hovering over US towns, has apparently taken flight.
The U.S. Air Force reportedly announced that they planned to dismantle the blimp just two weeks prior to completion. According to dvice.com, the blimp would be used “to fill the gap between spy satellites and spy aircraft.”
The Virginia-based company that produced the $211 million dollar spy blimp, Mav6, had produced the airship for the Air Force, but the service backed out when the cost of testing was revealed: “The official word is that the Air Force didn’t want to spend the estimated $188 million it would cost to test out the Blue Devil 2 for a year in Afghanistan.”
Mav6 next planned to offer the blimp to other military branches, such as the Navy, which has a long history of experimenting with blimps.
The Navy has apparently latched on to the project.
In videos shot in two separate towns in New Jersey, a Navy blimp can be seen hovering overhead.
It had been mentioned that Mav6 would not not equip the aircraft with its crucial mission systems and sensors during the testing phase. However, this was prior to the Navy’s procurement of the project.
Infowars reached out to Mav6, via media inquiry email, to confirm whether or not the blimp seen in the two videos is in fact the Blue Devil 2 airship, and if so, if it had yet been equipped with sensors and surveillance equipment. Mav6 has yet to reply.
Is the Navy forgoing the idea of testing the blimp in Afghanistan and instead opting to test its spy and surveillance capabilities over US soil and on the citizens of the United States? We’ll wait patiently for a response from Mav6 before jumping to those conclusions, but we won’t hold our breath.
Here is a second video, also filmed in New Jersey today.

It’s 2012, and as predicted, the ISPs and Hollywood & Music Industry lobyists now have more power than ever before. With the advent of PIPA, SOPA, ACTA and more, the shutdown of many filesharing and video-sharing sites, the little guys is now the target of internet bad guys who don’t think they are rich enough. There are reports of peoples uTorrents being shut down without warning, and this is just the beginning. Below I outline just a few tips I’ve picked up over the years to maximise your anonymity online.
First off i would reccomend to make sure you are not using Internet Explorer. I personally advocate firefox, its not made by MS or Google. its desgined by the online community and comes with an optional add-on called adblock plus, which automatically blocks internet ads and scripts you dont want.
Also if you already have FF make sure it is updated to the latest version (10 as of Feb 2) by clicking Help – About Firefox.
If you have it installed make sure to set third party cookies to asking you only and whatever other privacy options you want to enable, theres a whole section on securing your FF here.
A proxy is another way to stay anonymous. It routes your internet traffic through a foreign server so websites think you are coming from Japan or the US and cant track you properly. Theres plenty of good sfotware out there but the simplest one ive found is made by DD-WRT, but you need to have adblock installed as well because it comes with internet ads ironically. I use it regularly, very very simple to use, just right click it to enable and suddenly you’re anonymous.
It is not compatible with utorrent or alot of downloading sofware, so we need something different for that.
If you’ve been using uTorrent to download for a while you may have found yourself receiving lots of wasted data. This is data that has been discarded after being deemed corrupt or invalid by uTorrent.
This usually happens because Anti-P2P organizations are polluting P2P networks with fake peers, which send out fake or corrupt data in order to waste bandwidth and slow down file transfers. There is also a a more serious side to this, once you’ve established a connection to one of these fake “peers”, your IP has been logged and will most likely be sent to the RIAA, MPAA or your ISP to inform them what you have been downloading.
You can easily block these bad IP ranges in uTorrent by enabling the IP filter and using a simple script to update the IP block list each day.
The way things are going these days, there will be a lot of anti-P2P orgs trying to query your downloading habits, so update it every couple of weeks, or set it auto enable using this script.
Google, whose company motto is “Don’t be evil” have recently enabled data sharing for your accounts over all networks. That means you will have your Google+ results howing up in searches, its gonna take ito account past searches and friends and these things while searching, building one big online profile about you.
Theres a few ways around this (sort of).
- Make sure you are on Firefox with adblock and maximised privacy settings.
- For things you don’t want tracked, use a seperate google account or sign out and enable private browsing in firefox (Ctrl + Shift + P)
- Don’t use your real name or personal deatils, those are optionally true fields. Use a nickname on facebook and google+, this will also stop employers from Googleing your name.
Speaking of which, facebook probably have edited your privacy settings to public, watch this video to figure out how to change them to private.
Don’t forget to share this (anonymously!)
