Homeland Security Launches "If You See Something, Say Something™" Campaign at Indy 500

Secretary Napolitano Announces “If You See Something, Say Something™” Campaign Partnership with Indianapolis 500


INDIANAPOLIS—Secretary of Homeland Security Janet Napolitano today joined Indianapolis Mayor Gregory Ballard, Indiana State Homeland Security Advisor and Emergency Manager Joe Wainscott, and Indianapolis Director of Public Safety Frank Straub to announce a new partnership to bring the Department of Homeland Security’s (DHS) “If You See Something, Say Something™” public awareness campaign to the Indianapolis 500—an effort that will help ensure the safety and security of fans, employees, and race crews by identifying and reporting suspicious activity.

“Security is a shared responsibility and every citizen plays a critical role in identifying and reporting suspicious activities and threats—particularly at large events such as the Indianapolis 500,” said Secretary Napolitano. “Bringing the ‘If You See Something, Say Something™’ campaign to the Indianapolis 500 is an important part of the Department’s ongoing efforts to engage the American public in our state, local and national security efforts.”

The “If You See Something, Say Something ™” campaign—originally implemented by New York City’s Metropolitan Transportation Authority and now licensed to DHS for a nationwide campaign—is a simple and effective program to engage the public and key frontline employees to identify and report indicators of terrorism, crime and other threats to the proper transportation and law enforcement authorities.

The Department of Homeland Security originally partnered with the state of Indiana on the campaign in January 2011. The “If You See Something, Say Something™” campaign partnership with the Indianapolis 500 will feature both print and video materials—including an “If You See Something, Say Something™” public service announcement with Indianapolis 500 Driver Graham Rahal.

Over the past year, DHS has worked with its federal, state, local and private sector partners, as well as the Department of Justice, to expand the “If You See Something, Say Something ™” campaign and the Nationwide Suspicious Activity Reporting (SAR) Initiative—an administration effort to train state and local law enforcement to recognize behaviors and indicators related to terrorism, crime and other threats; standardize how those observations are documented and analyzed; and expand and enhance the sharing of those reports with the Federal Bureau of Investigation and DHS—to communities throughout the country.

Partnerships with the “If You See Something, Say Something ™” campaign have recently been launched by the Washington State Ferries, The City of Los Angeles, AEG Worldwide, Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority, the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA), the National Basketball Association (NBA) and the National Football League (NFL), as well as in Colorado, Minnesota and New Jersey, more than 9,000 federal buildings nationwide, Walmart, Mall of America, the American Hotel & Lodging Association, Amtrak, the Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority, the general aviation industry, and state and local fusion centers across the country. Secretary Napolitano also previously released the “If You See Something, Say Something ™” public awareness video, available here.

In the coming months, DHS will continue to expand the “If You See Something, Say Something ™” campaign nationally to help America’s business, communities and citizens remain vigilant and play an active role in keeping the country safe.

Hennepin Technical College.(SCHOOL SPOTLIGHT)

Techniques February 1, 2011 HENNEPIN TECHNICAL COLLEGE (HTC) OFFERS MORE THAN 40 PROGRAMS at its campuses in Brooklyn Park and Eden Prairie, and it has been ranked as one of the top 10 colleges in Minnesota. Among its offerings is the Manufacturing Engineering Technology Associate in Applied Science degree, which provides students with a multi-discipline skill base. The degree program is unique in that it allows students to receive a broad-based education in manufacturing along with a specialization in one of the many areas of the field–such as automated machinery systems, electronics, fluid power, machine technology, mechanical design, welding technology or plastics.

The plastics manufacturing technology diploma requires 36 total credits, and the curriculum includes technical courses on quality control; the fundamentals of plastics/chemistry and ingredients; an introduction to the plastics molding processes; and the properties and tests of selected plastics. Students also select from 12 credits of injection molding or seven credits of extrusion molding. The general education courses required are Communication in the Workplace and Computers in Manufacturing. A specialized lab and a plastics manufacturing technology internship are also part of the associate degree program. hennepintechnicalcollege.org hennepin technical college

Upon completion of the program, students are expected to be able to perform quality assurance and statistical process control procedures, operate various types of plastics molding processes, perform matching/finishing and fabrication practices and procedures, and interpret and communicate plastics/chemistry and ingredients information effectively. Other outcomes include the ability to demonstrate extrusion molding and injection molding process practices and procedures, and the ability to demonstrate knowledge and methods of properties and tests of selected methods. go to web site hennepin technical college

[ILLUSTRATION OMITTED] For students seeking only an occupational certificate, the HTC program offers two more options. The extrusion molding certificate is an 18-credit option that includes coursework on the fundamentals of plastics/chemistry and ingredients; the properties and tests of selected plastics; quality control; and extrusion molding processes I and II. The injection molding option replaces the two extrusion molding processes courses with three in injection molding and is a 23-credit program.

According to HTC, the Manufacturing Engineering Technology A.A.S. degree is also intended for those seeking career advancement, so like many of the school’s programs, this one provides a pathway for students who wish to continue their education. Those students may go on to Minnesota State University-Moorhead and pursue a bachelor’s degree in operations management, which will prepare them for supervisory and management positions.

Plastics are found in almost every part of our everyday lives, and as the Society of the Plastics Industry notes, it is an industry with a presence in every state in the country. But if we want to remain competitive globally, we must have the trained workforce to do so, and programs such as the one at HTC can help us in that endeavor.

    I would like to report people dancing at the Jefferson Memorial, it was in bad taste and not pretty to watch. I also saw dancing at the Cheetah Lounge in Ft Lauderdale. I also saw dancing on the TV show called America’s got talent last night, they were speaking in foreign accents, terrorists I believe. Definitely not American. I heard someone was dancing on the TV and he was from a gang that dresses in black who brazenly call themselves, Stealers. WTF!!!

    “Our government is a complete joke. Everyone in Washington D.C. belongs in prison.” I believe about 100 of the strongest people in the world are in D.C. and preventing a total collapse into a huge pile of mewling and decadence. That leaves a good 5,000 in need of considerable behavior mod. I have a plan.

    Janet the Molester and her assistant ‘The Breather’ Pistole and their minions, in keeping with the Memorial Tradition, to bring some dignity to the table. must qualify for the final running of the Indy 500. This includes repeating time trials and speed qualifications until they can qualify or crash trying. They would not be issued restraint equipment because they believe they don’t need it. Only as many practice runs as the existing rules allow are to be permitted.
    Good luck. TSA molesters and pedos, start your engines.

    The “If you see something say something” campaign was started in Australia after the events of 9/11 because the public had a generally low awareness of anything that could be a threat. For instance, if someone found a package or backpack on a train, at a train station or in an airport etc they would either, 1) ignore it thinking the owner will come back and get it, or 2) pick it up and hand it in the some clerk behind a counter. No one would have considered that it could be a threat i.e. a bomb.

    check out the status of Democracy in Georgia, one of our many dictators sponsored by ” The Homeland”. The latest brutal crackdown is reminiscent of ‘Hitler’s Germany’ and our future here in the U.S. if we allow this to continue. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=laL5xY4BA78 Peace! Doug

    I heard DHS is planning to sponsor a team on the NASCAR circuit, too. Next will be a major college Bowl game (maybe the “Patriot Spy Bowl”). On and on it goes. (this is sarcasm, I pray)

    How ironic. I DO see something. I DO say something. Our country has been converted into a police state. Few listen.

    Will Enough of Us Refuse?

    by Sheila the Watcher

    Living without the bonds of TV affords me the luxury of having time to read. As my third book this month, I happened to pick the Leon Uris novel, QB VII, written in the 1970s, when there was still something to be proud about in America, and when there were still enough people around who could remember the horrors of WWII.

    The story takes place in post-WWII England, and is about a libel suit brought by a Polish Nationalist doctor (Kelno), a former POW in Jadwiga concentration camp, against a Jewish-American author (Cady) who names him as performing surgeries for German doctors who were experimenting on Jewish prisoners.

    This is part of the opening statement made by the defense attorney (for Cady) in the British courtroom:

    “ “Well, as a matter of fact there were some Germans, soldiers, officers, priests, doctors, and ordinary civilians who refused to obey these orders and said, ‘I am not going to do this because I would not like to live and have this on my conscience. I’m not going to push them into gas chambers, and then say later I was under orders and justify it by saying that they were going to be pushed in by someone anyhow and I can’t stop it and other people will push them more cruelly. Therefore, it’s in their best interest that I shove them in gently.’ You see, the trouble was, not enough of these people refused.” 1”

    When my tears subsided I thought, what an amazing time to be reading this. How appropriate to what is happening in our country now.

    Day after day we see headlines about the indignities suffered by air travelers at the hands of TSA agents who are content to place their hands on the genitals of passengers of no matter what ages for their daily ration of bread (read: HFCS, MSG, GMO, etc.). And still the passengers line up for the privilege of being “man-handled” so that they can get to grandma’s house or their next business meeting a little faster instead of saying, “I am a free American and you may NOT touch me without cause,” or even, “I will not ride your airplane if I must be accosted so.”

    Day after day we see headlines about some police officer tazering an elderly citizen for asking a question, or throwing the occupant of a wheelchair to the ground to prove that he is handicapped… or killing a veteran for having a gun in his own home. And still we say, “Yes, sir” to the police and skulk away in fear, instead of saying, “Don’t do that to this person!”

    Day after day we see headlines about what a potential criminal/terrorist — someone to be suspected regardless of their actions — is the person who cites the U.S. Constitution to affirm their rights, or likes a certain political candidate, or has served his or her country in the military, or just wants to be left alone by “the system”, or has the audacity to disagree with the current administration — or who asks for acknowledgement of the truth instead of ridicule on a point of fact. And still we say, “Thank goodness you’re taking care of my safety and security, because I don’t want to get my hands dirty,” instead of saying, “I have a right to my opinion, to think my own thoughts.”

    Day after day we see headlines about the millions cheated out of their homes, loosing their jobs, forced to beg the government for poisoned food that will make their children imbeciles compared to who they could have been so that those who control the money can amass more and more for themselves, reaching orgasm at the thought of how much they have attained and how they can hold the “cattle” as slaves. And still we say, “Thank you for the job as a hamburger flipper so that I can pay you most of my wages in taxes,” instead of saying, “I will take care of my money myself.”

    Stand up. Don’t let them grope you. Don’t let them go through your car at a warrant-less checkpoint. Don’t let them search your home without cause or due process. Don’t let them control your money. TPTB’s philosophy is, if you don’t complain, nothing is wrong. Start complaining. Start deciding that you won’t allow yourself — or others — to be treated this way.

    We are at the proverbial “slippery slope”. From here it will be easy to fall into the same state as was controlled by the German nazis. The slogan of the time was, “Never Forget!” But TPTB are doing everything possible — dumbing us down, directing thought — to make us forget so that they can use the same tactics unencumbered by the ghosts of the slaughtered. Don’t allow us and our children to be next. Those who forget history are doomed to repeat it. Just make sure the history you remember is the truth.

    Aldus Huxley is quoted as saying (paraphrased) that the ideal situation is one in which the slave is contented with his enslavement. You are an accomplice to your own enslavement. Stop being contented. Stop rationalizing your own enslavement as the best you can hope for.

    TPTB know that if you don’t resist, you are theirs to exploit in any way they see fit. Stop complying. Imagine what would happen to TPTB if we all just said, “hell, no” — no matter how gently they grab our balls.

    Through our website, placeofrefuge2012.com, we talk to far too many docile, I-have-a-million-reasons-not-to-take-action kind of people. The time to stand up is now, not as they close the gas chamber door behind you. No football game, airline flight, bus trip, concert, prom, no job, no social group is worth your human dignity — nor your freedom. Spread the word that we are enslaved by our own volition — and that it doesn’t have to be so. Stop complying now with that which is, at it essence, wrong. There is no excuse.

    “ …You see, the trouble was, not enough of these people refused.”2 ”

    Israeli Snipers Killing U.S. Troops in Iraq?

    Filed under: Jews, Israel, Neocons, Muslims, September 11 — joannafrancis @ 12:30 am

    Anderson Cooper of CNN showed this video (without the rifle info) of snipers killing U.S. troops in Iraq on his October 18, 2006 show. CNN says it obtained the video from a “representative” of an unnamed “insurgent leader.”

    Bear in mind that Anderson Cooper used to work for the CIA.

    Richard Wilson’s hypothesis: Israeli soldiers and/or Mossad agents are killing our soldiers in Iraq in order to enrage American troops so that the slaughter continues.

    Proof: At the very beginning of this video clip, you see a rifle with a video camera attached to it. This weapon is made by the Rafael company, an Israeli arms manufacturer, that also makes IEDs. If you watch the video all the way through, it explains how this rifle works.

    CNN stated that the camera used to film these shootings was not a mounted rifle camera. But as you watch the video, you see that with each shot fired, the camera recoils. That would only happen if it were mounted on the rifle.

    Why is this significant? Because this kind of rifle-camera is extremely sophisticated and not available to your average Iraqi insurgent. I mean, it’s not exactly an easily obtainable Saturday night special!

    Something this sophisticated points to Mossad. Mossad is a master at false flag operations, e.g., Oklahoma City, the attack on the USS Cole in Yemen, the bombing of the Israeli Embassy in Buenos Aires, the July 7, 2005 London bombings, the 9-11 attacks in New York, the assassination of the Prime Minister in Beirut, the stoking of Muslim riots in France last year, the bombing of the Hassan al-Askari Mosque in Samarra, Iraq, etc.

    Israelis freely move among US and UK troops in Iraq, and have access to top-level US intelligence. Until July 2003, the head of all US forces in Iraq and Afghanistan was General Tommy Franks, a Zionist Jew. (He is now on the board of directors for Bank of America.)

    “…And we have no remaining Constitutional rights to help us…”

    There’s still the 2nd Amendment, while it lasts.

    As the saying goes, “Use it or Lose it.

    ‘Nuff said.

  12. Voir Dire  May 29, 2011 at 6:47 pm

    My God… how these people raise the hair on the back of my neck, and for anyone who knows what they DO when they capture a nation should be very afraid too. I have no doubts whatsoever that they are planning a massive famine for much of the world’s people, but the Whites’ will be (and have been for some time) the objects of their total destruction because Whites’ have been the only ones in history who ultimately resisted their subjugation and tired of their piracy, so they did the only thing they could which was to attempt to expel them from their lands which the master propagandists turned into “historical persecution.”

    Big Sis, Janet Napolitano, is also Jewish. We will never see anyone but a Bolshevik Jew in charge of overseeing our “Homeland Security.” It was created by and for the Bolshevik Jews from its conception to its implementation to cement our very own “1984” fashioned after their NKVD. These dual-agent Bolsheviks’ are not about to let anyone near the levers of jack-booted power other than one of their own in control of their totalitarian “Dept. of Homeland Security” With the departure of the he-devil Michael Chertoff, (now making millions off the the police state apparatus and radiating/molesting men, women and children at airports – his reward for orchestrating the 9/11 cover-up). they brought in the she-devil who had done everything in her power as governor to dismantle our borders. She also, of course, bankrupted Arizona as their Governor as an open-borders fanatic, and all but handed the Reconquistas the keys to the state. Amnesty is of course around the corner too, and anyone protesting it will be branded a “terrorist.” The entire purpose of the “hate crime” legislation was to make any criticism of Jews into “terrorist.” And we have no remaining Constitutional rights to help us. We are already living in an advanced police state with much, much worse to come.

    Napolitano is also good buddies with police-state legislation sponsor, and traitor, Democrat Rep. Jane Harman, who arranged to let the two AIPAC Israeli spies off the hook.

    (See: http://www.thenation.com/blog/spy-story-harman-saban-and-aipac )

    Napolitano’s Background

    Janet was born in New York City, the daughter of Jane Marie (née Winer) and Leonard Michael Napolitano, who was the Dean of the University of New Mexico School of Medicine.

    She has two siblings, Leonard Michael Jr. and Nancy Angela Haunstein.

    She graduated from Santa Clara University in Santa Clara, California, where she won a Jewish Scholarship.

    She served as a law clerk for Judge Mary M. Schroeder, and then joined the law firm Lewis and Roca.

    “If You See Something, Say Something” indeed! We’ve certainly been trying to, Ms. Napolitano. We really do have a menace in our midst, and all evidence points to you and your kinsmen.

    Bank of Israel Governor Stanley Fischer will test the waters before deciding whether to become a candidate to head the International Monetary Fund, a source familiar with the situation said on Sunday.

    “We will have a world government whether you like it or not. The only question is whether that government will be achieved by conquest or consent.”

    Paul Warburg, Jewish Banker, testimony before the U.S. Senate, February 17, 1950

    “We will establish ourselves in Palestine whether you like it or not… You can hasten our arrival or you can equally retard it. It is however better for you to help us so as to avoid our constructive powers being turned into a destructive power which will overthrow the world.”

    Chaim Weizmann, Published in “Judische Rundschau,” No. 4, 1920

    You can be sure that this in not for the benefit of us, the citizens. Remember, a faction within our own government led by Israel, planned and executed 9/11 and murdered 3,000 Americans.

    Many of us have helped document and prove the traitorous/terrorist plan conceived and carried out, and yet there is NO INTEREST by the authorities in looking at the greatest crimes to Americans on American soil, in our history.
