American civilians have been commenting on the unusually high number of military helicopters that have suddenly taken to the air.
This, and dozens of other stories, below the fold:

Lin Wood, [24.02.21 20:46]
Let me warn you: to understand what has happened you will have to face some hard truth – the good, the bad, and the ugly. Most people avoid that painful exercise about themselves and the world around them. They would prefer to stick their head in the sand and ignore the truth, deny it, distort it, or attempt to explain it away.
Unless we as individuals and as a collective society face the whole TRUTH, we will not be able to save ourselves or our country. You cannot fix something that you refuse to believe badly needs fixing.
Lin Wood, [24.02.21 20:53]
Let’s face this truth. Over at least the last two decades if not longer, we got complacent. We were focused on enjoying the benefits of freedom, technological advances, and what felt like an ever increasing standard of living. In short, we got lazy and took our eye of the ball. We took our freedom for granted. And what inevitably happens when you take something for granted? You stop working to keep and protect it. Until it is too late and you realize you are about to lose that which you took for granted.
If I have your interest, keep going. If I do not, feel free to go on Facebook and Instagram and write a personal diary about your daily activities replete with photos. The CIA loves information. Makes it easier for them to manipulate and brainwash you.
Do you think I have done a good job of selecting links and headlines? I certainly am not happy with my performance. Here’s a sample of recent headlines that I have not yet combed through. If you think some of them should have been featured, leave a comment.

These civilians hunt child predators. Expert warns they’re ‘playing with fire.’
INDIANAPOLIS — The confrontation begins at a side door of Lebanon Senior High School.
Viewers watched via Facebook Live as a woman approached the school, about 40 minutes northwest of downtown Indianapolis, and was greeted by Brian J. Boyer, a band teacher who, in that moment, was allegedly waiting for a 14-year-old girl to meet him for sex.
“Do you wanna come out and talk to me for a minute?” the woman asked.
“Basically, I brought you out here ‘cause we know who you are, I’m definitely not 14, you’ve definitely been talking to a decoy,” the woman said while walking with Boyer into the nearby parking lot.
The nearly 20-minute video is one of dozens posted to the PCI: Predator Catchers Indianapolis Facebook page. Their confrontation with Boyer was eventually interrupted by the school’s principal, who directed the decoy and Eric Schmutte, the group’s founder, to take their complaints to the district’s administration office.
Within hours of the encounter being streamed on Facebook, Lebanon Police announced Boyer’s arrest and the school district placed him on administrative leave. Boyer, whose job was terminated Jan. 29, is charged with one count of child solicitation.
Schmutte and the decoys working with PCI are part of a wider network of online sleuthing groups throughout the state.
‘Vigilantes’ just want to help. But there are risks.
Schmutte, 34, said he started his group after becoming outraged that child predators aren’t held fully accountable for their actions.
“The way I see it, the justice system is not doing what it needs to do as far as locking up these guys and giving them actual sentences,” he told IndyStar, part of the USA TODAY Network. “So, us exposing them is the next best thing so people can at least know that these guys are predators.”
As his audience has grown — the video of his confrontation with Boyer has over 250,000 views — Schmutte said he’s gotten pushback from some who say he’s posting videos for attention.
“It’s very insulting for people to tell us that we’re doing it for the views or the clout, just to be famous or whatever,” he said. “Because we put a lot of work into what we do and we take it very seriously.”
Yet, there’s another side to this picture: However noble their intentions, this kind of internet detective work carries significant legal and safety risks.
Online citizen groups hunting for potential predators is by no means a new phenomenon, but it’s often discouraged by law enforcement due to safety concerns for both the citizen investigator and their “catch.” In several instances across the country — including the case that contributed to the cancellation of Dateline NBC’s “To Catch a Predator” — subjects have died by suicide after being confronted by investigators.
And their work will not always be rewarded. While some law enforcement agencies will take their screenshots and videos as tips to investigate, others have outright said they will not accept any information from the groups.
One such prosecutor, Holly Hudelson of Orange County, told IndyStar in a written statement that her office is aware of Austin Spain, the one-man team behind the Bedford Predator Patrol, about 90 minutes south of Indianapolis, and said that unlike a police investigation, none of the information he presents can be used for prosecution.
“The vigilante’s actions in ambushing an individual in this way causes great risk to the parties and the public,” she said. “These actions make the community less safe, by allowing these alleged predators to avoid the possibility of a conviction by tainting a case from the start.”
Spain told IndyStar that although his page attracts thousands of followers, he’s not motivated by clicks.
“To me, it’s not about anybody knowing what I’m doing,” Spain said, “it’s about making the world safer for our kids.”
Victor Vieth, chief program officer of Zero Abuse Project and founder of the National Child Protection Training Center, told IndyStar that private citizens may not have a complete understanding of how a predator’s mind works — or the danger and gravity of the situation they’ve created.
“Even a lot of detectives are not well-trained on all of these nuances, and it’s hard for me to believe your average layperson is properly educated,” Vieth said. “They’re playing with fire.”
World Economic Forum and the Rockefeller Foundation Are Main Drivers for Digital Vaccines Passports
February 25, 2021
Klaus Schwab is becoming one of the most dangerous men perhaps in modern history. His World Economic Forum and the Rockefeller Foundation are the main drivers behind the adoption of digital health passes. Two years before the corona pandemic, the EU Commission had drawn up a “roadmap for vaccination”. They are trying to create an authoritarian world where they have lurking behind the curtain their agenda to reduce the population. I am warning that these people are ultimately looking to keep such restrictions upon the world travel also to reduce CO2 and then merge that with ultimately permits to even have children.
We simply have to make sure that ANY politician who is in league with Schwab is thrown out of office by 2022. The entire future of Western Society depends on the rejection of Schwab and his insane Agenda 2030. Moreover, ANY company that is in partnership with the World Economic Forum should be AVOIDED at all costs. CEOs who have been linked with Schwab should also be purged from office in any public corporation. They have abandoned their fiduciary responsibility to shareholders supporting Schwabs’ communist agenda he calls stakeholder economics – raise money for investment but then use it for political agendas.
If we do not see these actions by 2022, we are in for a very nasty battle against this rising Tyranny. Both the World Economic Forum and the Rockefeller Foundation should be black-listed by any investment whatsoever. In this world where they are out to cancel anyone who speaks the truth about their agenda, it is time we cancel them from society in return.
Deputies say gangs exist within Los Angeles Sheriff’s Department
A CBS News investigation has uncovered allegations of gangs existing within the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department, possibly for decades. Current deputies out of the East Los Angeles station say the existence of gangs within law enforcement has been a problem in the area.
The deputies, who do not want to be identified for fear of reprisal, claim the most prevalent are called the Banditos — comprised of mostly Latino deputies who serve predominantly African American and Latino neighborhoods.
“They operate as a gang. They commit crimes, they assault people,” one deputy told CBS News’ Maria Elena Salinas.
The deputy said the gang is based out of East L.A., and that members who have become Banditos there have been promoted and “they’ve spread all over the county.”
Members of the gang identify themselves with a tattoo, another deputy claimed.
They said the “initiation” process could involve “getting a shooting,” adding that potential members would “do anything for these guys.”
“If you get in a shooting that’s a definite brownie point,” the deputy said.
According to the deputies, members would plant weapons on suspects to justify those shootings.
“There’s been multiple occasions where … they say, ‘Hey, we got a guy that has a gun and he’s running from us.’ In reality that person never had a gun,” one deputy said. “And they would say, oh, it was a phantom gun. It was something that really wasn’t there.”
The same deputy said they had personally witnessed that occurring.
And despite the majority of deputies involved also being Latino, another deputy said the gangs “do racial profile.”
“It’s like Latino gangs. They target other young Latinos,” the deputy said.
That targeting is what grieving mother Lisa Vargas has contended happened to her 21-year-old son Anthony Vargas, who aspired to be a chef. He was shot 13 times by sheriff’s deputies while on his way home.
“We have videos with his voice, and his giggle. And we have to play that. You know? Because we don’t have his voice no more and we don’t have his smile,” she said.
Vargas claimed her son’s death was part of the gang’s “initiations.”
“In order for them to become a prospect, their thing is they have to kill somebody,” she said.
She filed a lawsuit against Los Angeles County and the deputies who shot her son. The suit alleges that the individuals who shot Anthony “were members of the Banditos gang or prospects, and that membership in the Banditos gang included using excessive force and shooting those who are unarmed.”
Sheriff Deputy Nikolis Perez and Deputy Jonathan Rojas, who shot Anthony Vargas, are “prospects” of the Banditos gang, two of the anonymous deputies alleged.
Asked how they knew, one deputy replied “just personal conversations with them, and them saying that was one of their main goals to be a part of this gang.”
However, if someone were to refuse to comply with the gang’s demands, the officer said, “They stop giving you backup, which is very dangerous. They ignore you.”
Los Angeles County Sheriff Alex Villanueva has publicly denied the existence of gangs within his department. On a video posted to the LASD website, Villanueva warns the department’s employees against joining such groups.
“Any employee who aligns with a clique or subgroup, which engages in any form of misconduct, will be held accountable. I do not want you joining these alleged cliques anymore. Period,” Villanueva said in the video.
One of the anonymous deputies who spoke with CBS News said, “The Banditos believe they can get away with anything and you know they’re not going to have any type of consequences for their actions,” they said.
Newly-elected Los Angeles County District Attorney George Gascón said his department takes the allegations “seriously,” and that he is committed to upholding the law.
“If in fact we believe that there is criminal activity within the sheriff’s department then we will deal with it accordingly,” he said.
As for Lisa Vargas, the California mom wants justice to go beyond her son’s killers.
“Justice for me is a whole long list,” Vargas said. “Because not only is it these officers being held accountable for homicide, for murder, it’s everybody else involved. I want the whole system cleaned out.”
A federal grand jury investigation has been convened. Sheriff Villanueva declined to comment.
An investigation into the killing of Anthony Vargas by the former district attorney’s office concluded that the deputies “acted in lawful self-defense and defense of others when they used deadly force against Anthony Vargas.”
Deputies Rojas and Perez deny being members or prospects of the Banditos.
