A 600,000 Cubic Foot Blimp May Be Spying on You

Ted Baumann

In the summer of 1849, Austrian Field Marshall Joseph Radetzky did something no one had done before: He bombed a city from the air.

His target was Venice, then in rebellion against the Habsburg crown. During the siege, he launched a fleet of unmanned linen balloons, carrying bombs made from canister shot and gunpowder, timed to drop over the besieged city.

Radetzky told Emperor Franz Joseph that the effect on the people of Venice was “frightful.” Indeed, Radetzky’s balloons had done little physical damage, but had a substantial effect on the morale of the city’s defenders. As the 19th century wore on, fear of attack by airships became a constant theme in popular literature. By World War I, the mere mention of the word “Zeppelin” was enough to cause panic in the streets of London.

A prevailing theme in the literature of the era and the minds of the people was that these aerial monsters would always be deployed by one’s enemies.

Secret TPP Negotiations—And Public Protests—To Be Held in New York City

Maira Sutton

The next round of secret Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) negotiations begins this Monday, January 26, and runs through the following week at the Sheraton New York Time Square Hotel in downtown Manhattan.

As with many previous TPP meetings, the public will be shut out of talks as negotiators convene behind closed doors to decide binding rules that could impact how our lawmakers set digital policy in the decades to come. Big content industry interests have been given privileged access to negotiating texts and have driven the US Trade Representative's mandate when it comes to copyright—which is why the TPP carries extreme copyright measures that ignore users' rights.

Deceased Filmmaker's Documentary Finally Released - Gray State: The Rise

Amanda Warren

Last week, we reported on the tragic and mysterious death of film producer David Crowley, his wife and young daughter who were all found dead in their Apple Valley, MN home, weeks after the incident took place. Few details have emerged since then. The latest news pieces such as here and here leave more questions than answers. According to the Hennepin County Medical Examiner, all three have been officially identified and died from gunshot wounds to the heads, weeks ago. Even though the deaths were being treated as suspicious and the back sliding door was found ajar, police have labeled it a murder-suicide.

The direction of the production and release of Crowley's anticipated fictional film Gray State - which depicted a bleak America with totalitarian rule, a police state and detainment camps - is unknown. However, a rough cut of the dual production documentary, Gray State: The Rise is available to watch.

The 2hr 39m film (below) features significant video bytes as well as interviews from Adam Miller, Col. Douglas McGregor, Adam Kokesh, Luke Rudkowski, Stewart Rhodes, Mark Dice, Alex Jones, Jason Bermas, David Crowley and more. The original finished version was to feature Abby Martin, Aaron Dykes, Jordan Page, and many more.
