Smith incident snarls traffic

Oregon State Police report major tie-ups on I-5 in the Portland area this morning as they attempt to cope with an outburst by Portland mayoral candidate Jefferson Smith. Saying he feels stifled by criticism of his driving record, Smith reportedly hijacked a military drone and began bombing cars on the busy interstate freeway. ODOT cameras revealed a high-speed chase that reached speeds of 95 miles per hour, after which Smith was apprehended, but not before kicking several officers in the groin. As he was led away in a straitjacket, he yelled, "They can't cross the Columbia if they don't make it to the Columbia," according to witnesses.

"I've never seen anything like it," said Kim Page of Aurora, who narrowly avoided being hit by flying chunks of asphalt as she was driving her mini-van to her job at Legacy Labs near the Rose Quarter. "There's something about that guy that's not screwed on right."

The mayoral candidate was taken to a local hospital with non-life-threatening injuries, but until Smith's medications kick in again -- and he can give authorities the launch codes -- the unmanned drone will continue dropping ordinance from overhead. Motorists are advised to look up occasionally and tune in to local radio for alternate driving routes.

Smith's supporters have rushed forward to say the incident was "no big deal." Bike Walk Vote added that their support for the candidate remains firm.

Let me get this straight... A candidate for mayor reaches out to Oregon voters in a new and creative way, and that's a problem? Oh sure, some Oregonians resent him for the drone attack, but don't we want a leader who's willing to make unpopular decisions? A leader who's not afraid to take the initiative with a new idea no matter what the polls might say? Besides, he already has an exciting, new plan to have volunteers fill in the craters from the bombs. Isn't it refreshing to see a politician who can cut through the red tape and get things done? I have never been more sure that this is the man we want in charge of our city and our lives.

Endorsed by Randy Leonard....how can we lose?

There's someone(s) crazy around there, but I don't know who...

"non-life-threatening injuries" = punch in the nutz?

Word is out that Straitjacket Jeffery didn't go to an adult psych unit but to the Doernbecher Childrens Hospital "Our Child and Adolescent Psychiatry Team". We wish him the best.

But maybe worse is that Char-lie now wants a streetcar built to Pill Hill. His streetcar bosses feel left out since the Tram excluded a surface connection.

... will continue dropping ordinance ...

Good pun, Jack.

It good to see that those of us with warped senses of humor has made an impact on this site...

And who sez u can't make a difference?

If facts make a difference, either that above or this below, one or the other is foolery:

September 7-9, 2012 -- Soros-funded group's "Brave New World"

... a George Soros-funded group called the Lifeboat Foundation, which states its mission is "encouraging scientific advancements while helping humanity survive existential risks and possible misuse of increasingly powerful technologies, including genetic engineering, nanotechnology, and robotics/AI, as we move towards the Singularity." However, one of the Lifeboat Foundation's Advisory Board members is chief scientist for NASA Langley Dennis Bushnell ... pushing the very same technologies for future warfare around the year 2025.

PowerPoint presentation prepared by Bushnell in July 2001 that is full of troubling advanced warfare techniques and tactics. The presentation was based on "futures" work between NASA and the CIA, Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA), the U.S. Special Operations Command, the Navy SEALS, FBI, and the Defense Advance Research Projects Agency (DARPA).

Nano-technology surveillance sensors are also discussed. These include "smart dust," a cubic millimeter or less, that floats on air currents; nanotags that are "placed on everything/everywhere; and "co-opted insects."

Some "smart dust" could be "deeply buried" inside targets and positioned and then explode as a weapon, according to the presentation. Other micron-sized "mechanized dust" can be "distributed as an aerosol and inhaled into the lungs." The dust then bores into lung tissue and "executes various "pathological missions.'" This presentation was prepared only three months before the aerosolized anthrax attacks via the U.S. Postal System shut down Congress, frightened the news media, and convinced Congress to quickly pass the USA-PATRIOT Act.

Another form of natural warfare discussed in the presentation is "'unconventional' nuc delivery." Specifically, the strategy is to "sink a ship offshore" and "detonate" it to "produce tidal waves with radioactive spume."

The NASA briefing concludes that the use of microwave weaponry on humans is legal, along with the use "chemical anti-functional weaponry, chemical 'psychological effects' via sensory organs weaponry (smell), chemical personnel incapacitation weaponry, PSYWAR, acoustic weaponry, and mechanical micro dust."

From the NASA viewpoint, mini-, micro-, and nano-satellites are seen as important weapons in the U.S. arsenal, along with mini, micro, and nano cruise missiles, unmanned aerial vehicles, and "smart mines."

The NASA brief summarizes by calling for U.S. countermeasures, which include the U.S. Special Operations Forces becoming the "only survivable human strike force" and extend the "Overseas FBI" to conduct foreign investigations only.

I think an incident of Jeff Smith driving drones has a larger probability of being encountered in the real world, larger than the chance risk of the hi-technology Supremacist wet dreams of 2001 being built out. Like this: J.Smith and drones really exist. Nano-bugs and -bombs and -bullyBOO 1) don't exist, 2) can't be built, 3) are 'wish listed' and exaggerated to attract funding, and 4) don't work, (ask anyone from military experience whether the 'equipment' works; see 'FUBAR' and 'SNAFU'). The main US DoD modern weapon is Lie & Bluff, (like Lars and FOX TV), getting people to believe mythic ability exists (although it truly doesn't) can control people as usefully as if such 'magic powers' underwear did exist.
Like, a poker game in which you are told to fold because one player has 5 aces intimidation; (5 aces don't exist, can't be got, is exaggerated, doesn't win: show 'em and get shot).

If hi-tech supreme 'weaponry' did exist, imagine it in the hands of the Jeff Smiths (or Paul Ryans) among us.

And the 'terrifying threat' DoD bluff intimidates fewer and fewer folks -- like a little boy who cries "threat" too many times while clear-eyed people see there is no 'threat.'
Tens of Millions of Americans today know Bush/Cheney's (and Obama's) fable of 9/11 is Big Lies and Americans (especially youngsters) know the 3 skyscrapers were blown up with pre-planted explosives. (Here's a daily debunk countdown to 11th anniversary.)
A Chinese submarine cruised through the 'impenetrable submarine detection network' (DoD exaggeration) off L.A. and, underwater, launched a trans-Pacific MIRV ICBM demonstration seen eye-witness by millions of Los Angelenos ... unfooled by the immediately-afterwards deployed and catapulted spinning TV propaganda.

There for a second I got it confused with this story: 1 Dead, 1 Wounded During Ky. Homeowners Meeting, By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS, September 7, 2012.
~ "A neighbor says people were intimidated by the man accused in a fatal shooting at a Louisville homeowner's association meeting because he was unpredictable and threatening." ~

threatened people often saying he carried a gun. "unpredictable and threatening"
But, so well, Jefferson Smith doesn't carry a gun ... not that he bloviates about.
