Surveillance Drone Spotted Near Chicago - For NATO Summit?
YouTube ^ | May 13th 2012 | MisterBees

Posted on 05/16/2012 8:50:33 PM PDT by Mad Dawgg

This was filmed in Elgin, Illinois about 40 miles from Chicago. I assume it's for the NATO summit this week as a security measure.

Why is it magically worse if it’s unmanned, instead of a police helicopter or a military Blackhawk?

People and their perceptions are strange.

NATO summit this week- burning leaves out of season next week...

The Bush war on terror created a slippery slope- I agree with enhanced targeting and surveillance of proven enemies; but it takes a very judicious government to walk that tightwire without infringing on the rest of us. We have no such assurance in place at present.

Because the drones carry thought control weapons stolen from the crashed alien spacecraft at Roswell, N.M. These weapons can also cause earthquakes when directed at a fault under a full moon.

I will not give anything away, so this is intentionally vague.

I live somewhere in the 6 County Chicago metro area. Today I saw CH-47 Chinook flybys. Twice. Never seen them before in this area. Not even during 9-11.

I plan to hunker down . . .

And Hellfire missles in the hands of Eric Holder or Janet Napolatano (sp) are not a good thing.

That was classified information, you will now be placed on the MIB hit list. Your only hope of not being assimilated into the Borg is a full body tin foil suit, that way they can’t find you by the electrical impulses given off by your nervous system. Then you will also need green coke bottle glasses to protect your eyes and so they can not access your brain via radio waves from your TV, radio, or an oncoming car. Good luck.....

Ummmmm, maybe because some drones are barely audible and take live, detailed video, have all kinds of eavesdropping equipment and can be transformed to weapons of war in mere minutes?

Because police/government could put up 20x the amount of inexpensive surveillance drones.

Just a wild guess.

I think that that particular drone can stay in the air 24 hours so that I don’t think that a close base is necessary.

More likely Rockford, given azimuth; Scott is south. Mayor Daley kicked the US reserve units out of O’Hare, aviation elements relocated to Rockford.

Social media is active with ever-evolving plans for pop-up demonstrations, but a lack of focus and light turnouts have kept events low key.

Here is Saturday’s timeline:

Saturday, May 19

Airspace restrictions begin around downtown Chicago, ending on Monday.

Road closings and pedestrian restrictions around McCormick Place go into effect, ending Monday at rush hour.

Parking restrictions go in effect around Chicago Cultural Center, 78 E Washington Street.

Metra Electric line begins skipping 5 stops. Passengers at all stops are subject to delays due to enhanced passenger screening.

Motorcades will bring dignitaries downtown from O’Hare International Airport, with rolling closures of Kennedy Expressway (I-90) and other major roadways. ...

Oddly enough it might be because we send unmanned drones into foreign countries to kill terrorists.

It is called a ‘chilling’ effect to then springboard off that psychological knowledge and terrorize your own people with unmanned drones that can potentially be armed to murder you.

Because putting manned air assets are both expensive and visible, and targetable for that matter. Also, human crews can be up in the air for far less time. There is also the human decision and chain-of-command element that brings a certain accountability in one fashion or another.

Drones? Cheap, nearly invisible, can be built as small as a fly and be in the air for an indeterminate amount of time. Some pimply face geek with a joystick in Colorado can kill you in Massachusetts.

It’s going to come to a day when they won’t take you out with a hellfire missle, it’ll will just be some little fly-drone full of undetectable poison that alights and sticks you, and you’re dead. Build a swarm and you can take out any resistance in minutes.

You need to be afraid.

Yes it's likely a test flight for the NATO gig. But then they won't be coming from Elgin. From what I've read there wouldn't be enough battery power in those mini spy drones for the length of flight - surveillance time required.

During NATO my guess would they'd be 'launched' from Midway Airport with an empty Hanger 'commandeered' as a Flight Control Center (Or just grabbed by The Rahmfather and given to the FedGov).

Note: Not that I advocate, advise or approve of what's recently been said about shooting these spy drones down -- but -- it shows why one 'may' need a long rifle in your Gun Locker. ARs, AKs, and Carbines are fine but when you need to 'reach out and touch someone something' a longer barreled rifle is req'd. A Rem 700 to an 'old' Mosin-Nagant, or 8mm Mauser (Yugo or German 98K) can be for more than Deer, Black Bear, or Elk. (just sayin')

A .50 Cal would be definite overkill :-)
