The Beginning of the End of the Free Internet . . . Unless . . .

As if considering ending "net neutrality" and proposing licensing people before they can have an website/blog/account where they can express their first amendment rights wasn't enough, the internet is now embroiled in a global "cyberwar" over the pressure being put on the organization "Wikileaks." Are they heroes or villains? Traitors or patriots of humanity? Terrorists or freedom fighters? Although only time will fully answer these questions, my concern is how the U.S. government (as well as others) and financial institutions are using this crisis to 1) consider and/or propose legislation to bring the internet under government control AND 2) punish an institution for what constitutes whistleblowing.

Yes, they may not be angels (although whether release of the information will compromise the United States or its allies remains to be seen) they are still the primary vehicle for people to anonymously pass on information that may prove governments complacent in murder, gratuitous espionage (on allies!), manipulation of facts, terrorism, and human rights abuses.

Jesse Ventura said (paraphrased) - I love my country, but I don't always love my government. I echo that sentiment.

If laws were broken, then go after the the lawbreakers. But once information is in the public domain, any attack on the "messenger" (e.g. Wikileaks in this case) will be seen as an attack on freedom of speech and the free internet.

As a result, the group "Anonymous" is now formulating Operation Avenge Assange under the broader Operation Payback that is an attack on financial institutions and other entities that are interfering with Wikileaks either by denying them services or dropping their financial relationship with them. That these same entities are also potential responsible for the horrible economic downturn that is shattering so many families and businesses may or may not be a coincidence.

If you remember from January 2008 , Anonymous is the collective organization of activists, hackers, and p.o.'d average citizens that attacked the Church of Scientology because they tried to claim a copyright infringement on the dissemination of a video showing Tom Cruise saying some pretty fanatical views about Scientology's worth in society. The result was numerous online exposes and protests at Church of Scientology locations that brought much unwanted attention to some of their questionable practices.

Since Anonymous is a collective of individuals with varying motives, scruples, and capabilities, their tactics have varied from the questionable to the noble to the just plain childish. However, they are overall simply an organization devoted to the protection of freedom of information especially having to do with internet access. Whether you agree with their tactics, you must agree that they are fighting for what all true patriots believe in . . . freedom of speech.

Documentary on Wikileaks -

Next a video from Anonymous explaining why they are supporting Wikileaks -

Finally, a video of Ron Paul defending Wikileaks on the Senate floor.

Whether you praise or criticize Wikileaks, please DON'T let anyone use this as an excuse to bring a free internet under government control.

If We Allow Our Freedoms to be Rescinded, then the Terrorists Have Won . . .

Benjamin Franklin once said, "They who can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety, deserve neither liberty nor safety."

Yet, that is what we are doing on a daily basis. Cameras at many intersections . . . legislation threatening to curb fourth amendment liberties regarding required court orders before police search & seizures . . . virtual strip searches and physical pat-downs by under-trained Transportation Security Agency goons (which is government policing private transportation venues) . . . police brutality during arrests.

When 9/11 happened, I was shocked & dismayed like so many others. I even bought the fear-mongering that led to one semi-justified war (Afghanistan) and one unjustified one (Iraq). And although I am not officially a 9/11 Truther since I don't subscribe to the "inside job" conspiracy theories, I do believe that the U.S. government is lying about what really led up to that day & even to some degree what exactly happened on that day. And there is now no doubt in my mind that the anti-freedom minded factions of the government used that horrible tragedy to perpetuate what is now becoming the instrument to control the American people.

And THEY said . . . Continue as if everything is normal . . . if we do not change our behavior to submit to fear, then we will defeat the terrorists.But our government did not do as they told us to, and as a result, we HAVE lost precious freedoms thanks to our response to the 9/11 attacks among others.

Here are some videos discussing or showing about just how bad things are getting . . .

Here is a recent incident in Miami. I understand if police deem someone breaking the law and arrest them, but punching a suspect then threatening bystanders is unacceptable (even if some bystanders are being belligerent due to their observation of the police atrocities). >>>Warning: Explicit/offensive language<<<

Anyway, hope you and yours had a safe and joyful Thanksgiving holiday!

Conspiracy Theory Begins October 15th on TruTV

All right, I don't usually post just to promote a television show, but I'm a big fan of Conspiracy Theory with Jesse Ventura on TruTV. I think the topics are interesting and well-researched, and the information is both vital to our understanding of how our government misrepresents the facts AND entertaining.

The show features my favorite radio show broadcaster, Alex Jones, who provides additional insight into certain topics.

Yes, it's sometimes a bit over the top . . . but even so, it is time for some real concern - especially considering that the issues brought up by the show can be sustantiated by other sources.

Anyway, do your own research & find your own conclusions.

Obama Deception - Redux

Recently on the Alex Jones show, Alex encouraged listeners to google "The Obama Deception" in order to allow the hit meter on the Google website to list it as most popular. However, When I went to YouTube to check out the video, it had been "removed by user."

This seems very suspicious when taken with the fact that the Alex Jones Facebook page was removed due to (supposedly) the "Gadsen Flag" being displayed on the page.

So, as a public service to all those Patriots and others out there who want to view the movie, here it is on Google Video . . . The Obama Deception.

Article on Googling "Obama Deception" on Infowars website. Comments mention the movie being removed.

Here is ChangeDaChannel's message about what happened.

Here is Alex Jones' video on the situation and what YOU can do to help.

The Next Great Depression . . .

There have been signs of life in the economy since the Bush-Obama bailout measures. That would be great if this were a bona fide recovery where people are going back to work, consumer spending is back to normal, and deficit spending is being brought under control. However, none of the above is happening to a large degree which would indicate an "artificial" or temporary recovery. One that is being propped up by fiat money being poured into the economy causing the devaluation of the dollar. Property values are falling causing a lower tax base across the country which leaves local governments (including schools, police, fire, sanitation, transportation) to fend for themselves.

Meanwhile, the fat cats in Washington are passing more useless legislation that does nothing to prevent another economic downturn. Even worse, laws are being passed to limit civil liberties including giving the president broad power over the internet. The fairness doctrine has reared its ugly head again. There are laws meant to prevent people from videotaping police or even public places.

Police prevent citizen from videotaping at Metrorail (Miami, Florida), then bans without cause -

Government reducing police services -

President Obama refusing to stop illegal immigrates -

Citizens that call for help are tasered -

However, this all pales compared to what many of us know happens when people lose faith in their government. Yes, its false flag time again. Time for a crisis that can be used to make the American people forget about their right being taken away. Take a listen to one possible view of how this will play out from Alex Jones . . .

Biblical Proportions

3The second angel poured out his bowl on the sea, and it turned into blood like that of a dead man, and every living thing in the sea died.

4The third angel poured out his bowl on the rivers and springs of water, and they became blood.5Then I heard the angel in charge of the waters say:
"You are just in these judgments,
you who are and who were, the Holy One,
because you have so judged..."


Some sobering words from the Holy Bible. Not that the oil spill is necessarily what this verse alludes to, but I find it quite sobering that the photos taken of the oil spill on the surface of the Gulf of Mexico waters eerily appear as blood.

Obviously this is a horrific ecological and economic disaster (and not to forget the deaths of the employees that were working on the oil rig when it exploded!) Whether this will be "Obama's Katrina" remains to be seen, but even if the oil leakage were stopped tomorrow, the damage has already been done.

Here is a YouTube video from Puppetgovcom (check out his channel) that summarizes well the stupidity and peril that has resulted from this tragedy.

The video directly below is a speech given by a woman from Louisiana who was permitted to sit in on some of the meetings when they discussed the oil spill disaster and the mitigation efforts. She has some credible accusations about how those in charge of the clean-up (which is obviously the Federal Government and BP since they won't let local authorities do anything without being on a leash) are stonewalling efforts and showboating for media while the problem goes unresolved. - louisiana resident speaks about BP Video

The Future of U.S. Economics

Found this interesting video that paints a grim but realistic picture of what the future of the United States economy may look like. Watch for yourself!

Is this a "bailout" . . . or an "abandon ship?"

It's bad enough that we bail out U.S. private institutions such as banks and automobile companies while padding the economy with fake solutions like "cash for clunkers" and the like. However, we are now treading into dangerous territory with money being funneled into the International Monetary Fund to help prop up foreign economies and banks! California is going bankrupt, New York and Michigan aren't that far behind, and unemployment is steadily getting worse (10.2% in Florida for example). Now BOTH our schools and the military are becoming inadequately funded. We're scrapping the space program. And if all of this were not bad enough, there is a concerted effort to downgrade our civil liberties as outlined in the United States Constitution. David Rockefeller is correct . . . we are indeed only one major crisis away from instituting a New World Order. The only question is - which one will it be? Will it be financial meltdown, terrorist attack (legitimate or false flag), an epidemic, or a new war? Pick your poison it seems to me. Anyway, here are some interesting videos regarding the potential for disaster that we face.

It's Bilderberg Group meeting time . . . in Greece (how ironic!)

On May 14-17, 2010, the secretive talking heads known as the Bilderberg Group will be meeting again. The meeting place will be in the same country that is experiencing a financial meltdown due to the overspending of its government - Greece. As a result, austerity measures including the elimination of pensions, reduction of salaries and other benefits, and the raising of taxes is causing protests and riots throughout the country. Well now, isn't that interesting! Even though I believe it was the socialist economics and policies that got Greece into such a mess, I do sympathize with the people who are being forced to accept without any say the draconian economic measures that will no doubt plunge the country (and by proxy possibly Austria, Germany, Ireland, Romania, and a few others that have invested in this countries finances) into an economic depression. In other words, the cure may kill the patient before the disease can. What's worse? With all the socialist "reforms" that President Obama and Congress are pushing through (i.e. Socialized Health Care, Cap & Trade, Fairness Doctrine, expansion of government) we will soon become something close to what Greece is (or was). Is this 1929 all over again, especially after what happened on Thursday, May 6th? Listen to this video from MSNBC where they mention the possibility of market manipulation causing the almost 1000 point drop and subsequent "miraculous" rebound.

Hang on to your hats folks (and your wallets if you can). This isn't over by a long shot. Now, the United States is proposing handing over billions to Greece as well. Hmmm . . .

Big Brother is Here!

Remember those WW2 movies when Nazi soldiers asked frightened people just trying to get to work or home for "papers?" Or how about those Cold War movies where sentries stop a "citizen" in the street and ask for "papers?" Well, if those movies make you feel all warm and secure at how government is just trying to look out for the safety of the people, you'll love the newly proposed National I.D. Card!

Watch these two videos: 1) Judge Napoleotano talks about the specifics of the I.D. card - what is it, who will have to have one, and what the possible ramifications of it might be. 2) Senator Ron Paul weighs in on the I.D. card and why it will NOT keep us safe and why it is a BAD idea.

Next Up . . . The End to the Fourth Amendment!

The fourth amendment to the U.S. Constitution guarantees that we will not be subjected to illegal search and seizure. That means that we don't have to worry about law enforcement surveilling us, searching ourselves or our property, or confiscating our belongings (including forcing us to submit a blood or tissue sample) without probable cause of a crime AND without due process of law. Well, that's all about to go out the window.

John Walsh, as you may remember, tragically lost his son at the hands of a child abductor many years ago. He has dedicated his life to stopping crime and protecting children all over the country. Although I admire him, I'm afraid that what is being proposed in the following video is an example of what happens when good people go too far. Watch and decide!

Time for some comedy!

Yes, I know that things are getting serious with the president trying to stifle free speech, more money about to be stolen from taxpayers, unemployment still rising & the value of the dollar falling, and the still eminent threat of globalism. However, sometimes we have to just sit back and laugh a bit. Therefore, below I am presenting this video that I think allows us to laugh at the madness going on before returning to the seriousness of protecting our freedoms.

New Boss = Old Boss!

I found this on Mark Dice's web site (not his video, but check out his website) and I think it's a great one.
