DRONE SPIES ON WORLD NET DAILY FOUNDER
World Net Daily editor and prominent Obama administration critic Joseph Farah revealed how his secluded property was buzzed by a spy drone – part of what Farah fears is a “war” being waged by the administration against its political adversaries.
“I’m taking my dog for a walk and guess what I see right over the tree line right above my head is a drone,” said Farah, adding that the drone was low in the sky and sounded like a lawnmower.
“I don’t live in the city, I don’t live in a populated area, I live in one of the most rural places you could possibly live in Northern Virginia and there could only be one thing that this drone was spying on and that would be me, that would be my property because there’s just nothing else around except woods and deer,” said Farah.
Farah joked that the drone was probably stalking him because he was a terrorist, given the fact that a recent report funded by the Department of Homeland Security put out by the National Consortium for the Study of Terrorism and Responses to Terrorism listed Americans who are “reverent of individual liberty” as “extreme right-wing” terrorists.
“The liberty lovers out there really have to stick together….or we’re going to hang together as our founders said,” warned Farah, expressing his concern that patriots who resist the increasing levels of control being asserted over their lives by big government would be “hunted down” by a re-elected Obama administration.
“Look – this is the first term – if he’s re-elected it’s going to be war – they will be at war – we will be hunted down like dogs, keep that in mind, that’s what the stakes are,” said Farah.
Farah highlighted the fact that he was targeted for an audit at the height of World Net Daily’s dissent against the Clinton administration as part of a process of the Clintons targeting their political adversaries and that the “audit train” returned in 2009 shortly after Obama came to power. he fact that Farah’s home is in Northern Virginia is noteworthy given the controversy caused last month by Virginia Governor Bob McDonnell’s statements that police using drones would be “great” and “the right thing to do.” In justifying the use of drones domestically, McDonnell cited the U.S. military’s use of the technology in a battlefield environment.
Following an easing of restrictions, the FAA predicted that 30,000 surveillance drones would be in American skies by the end of the decade. Drones are already being used by police departments and federal authorities across the country.
The mainstream media recently attempted to quell uproar over the use of drones domestically by attacking Infowars, World Net Daily, Drudge Report and others for pointing out that the EPA uses drones to spy on farmers.
While the hit piece attempted to claim that the EPA doesn’t use drones for such purposes, a search of the federal agency’s own website uncovered numerous projects where the EPA was using drones to “support environmental decision making” and create “a continuous environmental monitoring capability.”
