Chinese Worship Lucifer in Guiness World Record Drone Ceremony


Isaiah 14:12-14 NKJV

The Fall of Lucifer

12 “How you are fallen from heaven,
O Lucifer, son of the morning!
How you are cut down to the ground,
You who weakened the nations!
13 For you have said in your heart:
‘I will ascend into heaven,
I will exalt my throne above the stars of God;
I will also sit on the mount of the congregation
On the farthest sides of the north;
14 I will ascend above the heights of the clouds,
I will be like the Most High.’

Man Takes Responsibility for Drone Crashing at White House


From the article:

A two-foot-long drone apparently flown by a hobbyist crashed on the White House grounds Monday in an extraordinary, if unintended, breach that raised fresh questions about the president’s security — and a growing threat from the sky.

A man later came forward to say he was responsible for the mishap in the middle of the night and hadn’t meant to fly the drone over the complex, officials said. “Initial indications are that this incident occurred as a result of recreational use of the device,” said Secret Service spokesman Brian Leary.

This story reminded me of being at the movies (rarely) and the psa’s saying don’t be rude by being on your cell phone and talking….   “Don’t Be That Guy”.

While police around the country are arming themselves with drones (using federally funded grant money) to be used on the American public, a toy drone goes down at the White House. The Secret Service, CIA, FBI go buzzing around like a kicked fire ant hill. LOL… NOW THEY KNOW HOW IT FEELS.

Good work Secret Service, now every nut who will want to hurt the President will know of another way of doing it. Why can’t we keep some things secret? The public doesn’t need to know every possibility available to do harm!

IMO: Obama is one of the most protected people on the planet.

No big deal, Obama is fond of drones.

I’m convinced the government does stuff like this on purpose because they want to ban drones.

Mark my words, this event will be used to show why laws are needed to ban drones for private use (the government will continue to be free to do whatever they want, of course).

When they said Drone on the White House Lawn, I thought they meant a drunk staffer passed out. As it turned out it was a case of “Hey Mister, Can I have my Kite Back?.

This is So Cool

Drone-like ‘quad copter’ flown into White House is Amazon ‘Top 10’ toy


From the article:

A type of toy drone flown over the White House gate that crashed on the lawn is a huge seller, making Amazon’s Top 10 list of best-selling toys.

So-called “quad drones” are growing in popularity and can be purchased for under $100, even those with cameras. Larger drones can cost up to $1,000. White House officials said the “quad copter” flown into the facility was about two feet across. It is being described as a DJI Phantom 1 which costs about $450.

I was just thinking of another use for a drone and that is checking that your kids made it to the bus stop safely. I would have loved this when my youngest was in middle school. Though he probably wouldn’t have appreciated it, lol.

FAA Investigating Possible Illegal Use Of Drone At Hartford Crash Scene

 Well, apparently SOMEBODY outside of the privileged people who are “delegated” to have and use drones to spy on the public has one. Shouldn’t we all have one? This could be fun.  The spied upon should also have the ability to spy too. Isn’t turnabout fair play?
