    2010 Winter Olympics Security Measures

    With the 2010 Winter Olympics rapidly approaching, I thought I'd get people up to speed from a security perspective and some of the major players involved. I resisted placing this in the Sports forum because I think as time wears on this will become a more appropriate forum for any discussion on this topic.

    Canadian taxpayers will spend up to 1 billion dollars and use 16,000 police & Armed Forces personnel to quell protesters, the head of the Vancouver 2010 Integrated Security Unit Bud Mercer explained to Vancouver City Council.

    The Tyee

    "I can assure council as I stand before you here today, that locally, provincially, nationally and internationally, there are groups that are considering or planning to engage in criminal protests during the 2010 Games. North America and Canada are not strangers to criminal protests during major events -- the 1999 Seattle WTO, 2001 in Quebec City or the Stanley Cup riot. There are things that will happen during a major event that we have a responsibility to plan and prepare for..."

    Staying with the Olympics, Verint Systems will figure prominently on the security side of things as they supply all the surveillance software & hardware systems at the Vancouver Airport.

    Verint Systems also supplied the software & hardware surveillance systems for the London underground which were put to task during the 7/7/05 attacks and has fallen under much criticism since.

    Verint Systems parent company, Comverse Technology, has also fallen under criticism in recent times centering around former CEO Jacob Alexander.

    Comverse stock has since been delisted from the from Nasdaq and removed from the S&P 500. They now trade on the Pink Sheets.

    Airport Security Measures Ineffective

    A Simon Fraser University professor and expert on terrorism says current security measures are doing nothing to prevent future attacks.

    "The new security measures are an annoyance. I don't think they're going to be effective," said Andre Gerolymatos. He said the measures, brought in after an attempted bombing on a jetliner headed for Detroit on Christmas Day, are just a "knee-jerk reaction."

    "It's a way for the government of the United States to pretend that it's doing something positive and reassure people by making them very uncomfortable," he said.

    "Security, as it stands right now, is not going to deter a determined attempt by a terrorist to get on board an airplane

    Somehow, I knew there was a reason I wasn't meant to move 'home' just yet...

    We know what the responses have been to terrorism in the U.S.

    I would be interested to know what people think Canadians will do, and think. And what the response to it might be.

    For example, if someone from Iran were to cause a terrorist event, would Canada go to war against Iran.

    That's a very good question I hope Canadians never have to answer.


    I do not know if the people of the United States would vote for superior men if they ran for office, but there can be no doubt that such men do not run.

    Why would we or anyone assume it was automatically Iran?

    This may be something to consider

    Could Vancouver 2010 be the next 9/11? (UPDATED 12AM EST 1-28-10)


    WARNING: I now believe I have reasonable grounds to suspect there may be a “false flag” attack carried out during the Olympics in Canada. The games will take place in Vancouver and Whistler from Feb. 12th until Feb. 28th. Below, I have compiled the following suspicious activity by searching and analyzing the news from various media sources and by speaking with citizens in Canada themselves.
    In my opinion, an attack on the Olympics while it is being highly guarded would be the perfect way to bring in more police state measure and to more fully integrate the US and Canada into a functioning North American Union. But the question remains, is that really what is happening right now?

    I hope you will look at the information and make up your own mind as to what pattern you see unfolding, any information provided is for analytical and educational purposes only and is meant to raise public awareness of current events and the potential dangers they could present.

    WARNING SIGNS:

    1.)


    Two tons out of 6,000 tons of Ammonium Nitrate, (a material used in making powerful explosives) have gone missing from a shipment to a storage facility in the Vancouver area from a company that was recently bought out for $22 billion by some of the world’s largest financial companies. These companies are Goldman Sachs, AIG, The Carlye Group and others. The company that was purchased is called Kinder Morgan. Kinder Morgan didn’t report the two tons missing for over a month, when they did report it they came back a week later only to say they simply made a “clerical error”. Soon after the announcement, the RCMP started their investigation and came back saying they can’t confirm that it was really accounted for. Kinder Morgan has also tried to point out that they are only one company in the chain that had contact with the shipments. 250 truckloads were reportedly sent to Dyno Nobel (an explosives company) for packaging. There were also trucking companies hired to ship the product that the RCMP is attempting to track down. To put this into perspective, it is claimed that only one ton of this material was used during the Oklahoma City bombing, and now two tons are missing. That amount is more than enough material to cause substantial damage to numerous locations. With all of this said, the question arises, who has the capability and the motive to steal two tons of Ammonium Nitrate?

    http://www.nytimes.com/2006/08/28/business/29kindercnd.html?_r=1&dlbk (Kinder Morgan bought out by financial giants)

    2.)

    The media is suddenly going wild about how Al-Qaeda terrorists in Afghanistan are now using Ammonium Nitrate for explosives and the Afghani government has banned the use of the material. Afghanistan has also banned the use of Ammonium Nitrate for fertilizer due to this problem. There are many articles like these.

    http://www.strategypage.com/htmw/htweap/articles/20100125.aspx (Afghanistan bans Ammonium Nitrate fertilizer)

    3.)

    Right on cue, as if it were a screenplay, and four days before the State of the Union address, the guy you have all heard of since 9/11, haven’t seen in a long time and who is probably dead, Mr. Usama Bin Laden ladies and gentlemen, give him a round of applause! He just came out in what is probably going to turn out to be yet another faked video and predictably praised the underwear bomber that burned his genitals in a failed bombing attempt on Christmas Day of 2009 and said the attacks will continue until we stop supporting Israel. In fact, look just how effective these guys are, they can get our freedoms taken away by our own governments, simply by penetrating our security and hurting only themselves in the process, clever aren’t they?

    4.)

    In a recent development Canadian parliament has been prorogued (A term where they are suspended typically in order to make new legislation and where all governmental power resides within the office of the Prime Minister.) until March 3rd (Remember that date.) after the games.The Prime Minister has also been given the sole responsibility for making the judgment call to shoot down any high jacked aircraft; normally this is not his responsibility.

    This is strangely the same as before 9/11 where Dick Cheney was given control of the military air defenses for a short time due to war games being conducted, and he denied the request to shoot down the plane approaching the Pentagon. This was testified to by Transportation Secretary, Norman Mineta in front of the 9/11 Commission, though no mention of this was given in the final report you can still watch the video of his testimony.

    5.)

    On February 14th, 2008, Canada and the US signed an agreement which allows for the deployment of US troops inside Canada.

    http://www.globalresearch.ca/index.php?context=va&aid=8323

    And if the military wasn’t enough, police officers are allowed to come join in now.

    Headline: New maritime security law will deputize U.S. officers “in every part of Canada” during integrated operations. (North American Union anyone?)

    “On November 27, Public Safety Minister Peter Van Loan and Justice Minister Rob Nicholson tabled legislation that would transform designated U.S. police and security agents into peace officers equal to the RCMP “in every part of Canada” during joint maritime border operations.”

    The Olympics in of 2010 will be a “joint maritime border operation”.

    http://www.globalresearch.ca/index.php?context=va&aid=16499

    6.)

    British Columbia’s privacy office has been frozen, leaving the government unaccountable, says a leaked letter.

    “Operations at the Office of the Information and Privacy Commissioner have ceased, leaving British Columbians with no independent office to hold the government accountable, says a leaked letter marked “Extremely Urgent” to the Speaker of the Legislative Assembly. The letter, sent Friday, is from the executive director of the Office of the Information and Privacy Commissioner, Mary Carlson, and is addressed to Bill Barisoff. She said staff have shut down the whole operation to avoid any legal issues that could arise from reviewing cabinet files or law-enforcement information. Their duties also include opening appeal files and privacy complaints, securing and reviewing records on the subject of an appeal, authorizing time extensions to respond to access requests and policing the timeliness of government responses to access requests.”

    7.)

    Hospitals cancelled 2,400 elective surgeries to make room for apparently, much expected patients needing surgeries during the Olympics. Of course, public relations is blaming them for doing it for other reasons like saving money. They say that even if that makes no sense, because the government had no problem spending well over a billion dollars on the Olympics, they are clearly not hurting for money, even if that is what some people think.

    8.)

    It seems that people may be getting tipped off or have prior knowledge already! What are they afraid of if the largest joint security operation ever taken on by Canada and the US is there to protect them? “Obama is not alone; presidents and prime minister of other countries around the globe are sending representatives as well.”

    9.)

    The same Israeli company Verint, whose camera systems were on buses and the London underground and inconveniently (for us) malfunctioned on 7/7/05 during the London Bombings, was the same company to install cameras in Vancouver Airport, the subways in Montreal, and other key locations around Canada. Also, worthy of noting is that in the past, during a large terrorist attack where their systems are installed, as the DOW goes down, stocks at Verint have always shown to have gone up. They are said to be connected to the Madrid bombings on 3/11, as well as 9/11. In more interesting news about Verint’s systems,

    It appears that there is a backdoor in Verint’s system that can be accessed any time from any where. Still the U.S. continues turning the other cheek and allowing it to happen.”

    10.)

    Security measures have been increased to an historic all-time high with a budget of $900 million dollars, amid financial turmoil. Security includes the foreign United States military using NORAD to secure the air, purchases of 800 CCTV security cameras, new fences, two remote submarines to check for underwater threats and even bomb sniffing dogs. Canadian military with warships, black helicopters and fighter jets have been seen floating and flying around the Vancouver area already in January causing fear to many Canadians. There will also be tens of thousands of police and private security forces who are reported to be renting schools and trailers to use as bases for their operations.

    Strangely enough, regardless of the build-up of security they have undertaken and the threat of attacks, they seem to double-think and claim to not be worried about it that much and are even allowing weaknesses in security to be exploited through the media. The contracted security companies have even been hiring people with zero background in security to help run security at the games, people who will not even have enough time to train properly to do their job.

    11.)

    The corporate/government-controlled media outlets are exaggerating the threat of radical Islamic terrorism and the UK has raised the threat level to “severe”. The media is also throwing around the term “Al-Qaeda” specifically, it almost seems as if they are trying to scare people. In addition, they’ve even said there is fear of a repeat of the 1996 Atlanta bomb blast.

    http://www.macleans.ca/article.jsp?content=20070306_094145_4900 (Al-Qaeda attacks being prepared for by the military)

    *My explanation of why the media is used to scare people:

    The method for control that professional mind manipulators use is referred to as “Problem, Reaction, Solution” and works using basic mind manipulation techniques, like this; first they cause a traumatic event, a good example that relates to this is 9/11. This causes people lots of grief, pain and fear, and when a traumatic event occurs, the mind naturally attempts to figuratively construct what is sometimes called an “amnesia wall” around that event to block it out, this is a way our mind helps us to deal with fear by forgetting about it. But you can’t just forget about it, you have to have a reason that behavior is acceptable in light of the present danger.

    Next, the programming is set in place of who is the enemy and who can stop them. The next phase is to cause the people to recall the traumatic event(9/11/01). By suggesting and warning about the possibility it could happen again, they help to reinforce peoples’ fears of having to experience another traumatic incident.

    So by causing them to access the (traumatic) memory that their conscious mind is actively trying to block out, this actually causes them to access the programming they were given after that previous traumatic event happened. The programming was set in place for what should happen next in the case that the traumatic memory is ever brought up again. Subsequently, this causes them to chase after the “hero image” (The government in this case.) that was previously set up for them to trust in to save them from ever having to experience another traumatic incident. Thus the people are willing to relinquish their freedom for security.

    By doing so they are exploiting natural processes in the mind and exploiting the “Problem, Reaction, Solution” formula for control. In short, it works by creating a problem, getting the victim to respond to the problem, and providing the victim with a predetermined solution to that problem that was created for them, to bring about a desired outcome for the controller.

    Wow! That's a long list of suspicious things. I'm just glad I'm not there... The border will probably be a literal nightmare of groping, questioning, searching, and information gathering. What a sad world we've become. This should be a happy event. Let's pray that it turns out that way.

    Something else to watch, be concerned about and consider in this equation...IMO....
