Have you ever been just writing along in Microsoft Word, and then right before your eyes, you watch your words disappear? I have. More than once. Most of the time it was when I was writing some insidious opinion on Obama, or Clintons, or the Bushes.
I figured I was going nuts–until I came across this article the other day:
The journalist Luke Harding’s book, The Snowden Files, came out earlier this month. But judging by Mr. Harding’s assertion that his words were somehow deleting themselves while he wrote about the NSA, it’s a wonder it came out at all.
While he was working on the book about Edward Snowden’s exploits, Mr. Harding writes in the Guardian, the sentences he wrote about the NSA would periodically garble or delete themselves.
From the Guardian:
Something odd happened. The paragraph I had just written began to self-delete. The cursor moved rapidly from the left, gobbling text. I watched my words vanish. When I tried to close my OpenOffice file the keyboard began flashing and bleeping.
Over the next few weeks these incidents of remote deletion happened several times. There was no fixed pattern but it tended to occur when I wrote disparagingly of the NSA. All authors expect criticism. But criticism before publication by an anonymous, divine third party is something novel. I began to leave notes for my secret reader. I tried to be polite, but irritation crept in. Once I wrote: “Good morning. I don’t mind you reading my manuscript – you’re doing so already – but I’d be grateful if you don’t delete it. Thank you.” There was no reply.
A month later the mysterious reader – him, her, they? – abruptly disappeared.
Well, I can’t tell you how I felt when I read this. I am certainly not as important a character as the reporter that is writing about Snowdon. and yet, years ago, when I was in contact with a young women in D.C., whose father was in the CIA, she all of a sudden told me she couldn’t talk to me anymore. We were really great friends. This was back when Bill Clinton was President. I have wondered ever since if I struck someone somewhere in Georgetown as being “dangerous.”
I do still have one reader there according to my stats.
But, I’m not special in any way. I happen to believe the government has a dossier on every “patriotic” American, and it’s no conspiracy when Homeland Security even lists us as a threat.
Basically, it’s a form of censorship. And now that Obama has given the internet to the world, something, which by the way, he had NO authority to do, this kind of thing will become the norm. Wait till China and Russia put their two cents in.
The truth is, the liberals have been desperate to silence the internet for many years because it really is the last place that the normal citizen’s voice can be heard.
If you think our government does NOT want to censure us…look at what the I.R.S. did to the Tea Party groups.
Let’s go back: Remember the E-PARASITE legislation, a bill proposed by Congress that was formerly known as the Senate-backed PROTECT IP Act? It was intended to punish copyright infringement–as well as toy with its definitions to a harrowing degree. Websites would be guilty until proven innocent. Search engines would punish you to the dustbin of the superinternet basement. Obama’s FCC Diversity Czar, Mark Lloyd was on record for praising Hugo Chavez for shutting down private media companies.
FROM CONSERVATIVE: Robert McChesney is the founder of Free Press, a group with close ties to the Obama administration. He has ADMITTED what the REAL GOAL is with Net Neutrality: “At the moment, the battle over network neutrality is not to completely eliminate the telephone and cable companies. We are not at that point yet. But the ultimate goal is to get rid of the media capitalists in the phone and cable companies and to divest them from control.” emphasis added
And now that Obama has given the internet over to other countries, he endangers our very lives. What’s bad about this? Well for a start. Censorship. Internet Taxes—and worst of all, he is putting us in more danger of a cyber attack by our enemies
Brad Blakeman (Pentagon) cautioned that he is more concerned about the situation today than he was in 2010, saying “I had the opportunity to meet with Dr. [Robert] Kahn, one of the inventors of the Internet at the Pentagon, as well as Admiral McConnell, about the Internet and cyber-attacks. And our country is hit tens of thousands of times a day through the Internet in cyber-attacks both on our private sector and public sector. “The information we are able to gather through the type of control we have on the internet is one of the reasons why America is safer than we would be if we were under international control. This is a matter of national security, as well as economic security.”
As for whether this could lead to some type of UN-sponsored international Internet tax, Blakeman said, “Absolutely. They could set rates. You know, we give out the IP addresses as the domain names for relatively small amounts of money, which is then passed on to the consumer through programs they have through their Internet providers. The cost of it is so low and now we’re going to be beholden to an international body who’s going to start determining rates or worse yet, access to the Internet. Who gets a domain name? Who gets an IP number?”
But go figure: the big boys love it: Google, Zuckerface, Verizon, AT&T, and Senate Commerce Committee Chairman Jay Rockefeller argued that the transition will help ensure the Internet remains free and open.
Right…if Mr. One World Government thinks it’s a good idea, that should make us all feel better.
For now, we might be safe. But AFTER the next elections…I wonder.
My friends amforatas in Australia thinks that the internet will always be free…that the internet will change the world, and no government will be able to control it.
I hope he’s right, because as much as Hillary Clinton and Obama stand up and give great speeches about ‘freedom of speech’ it’s all a ruse.
They mean…and want..to control it all. We’ve seen the internet crushed by dictators in other countries, could it happen here?
The FCC is directly interfering with our free market system, by giving bureaucrats power over Internet carriers. The Net Neutrality Act seems to be part of a larger effort by the Obama administration to exert power and speech restrictions over the entirety of the Internet, what you can see when you are on it, and how you access it. However, what we have today is a fundamentally broken system that funnels most of the wealth and most of the power into the hands of the ultra-wealthy and the gigantic corporations that they own.
I gave a factual account of what the president was going to do and sure enough now in 2014, safely re-elected, our internationalist president is seeking to give our most important precious asset, the Internet, to basically international control. The United States developed it with taxpayer dollars at DARPA, which is at the Pentagon, as an open architecture networking. We didn’t keep it for ourselves, we monetized it and were able to make countries a lot smarter, a lot freer and now the president seeks to be beholden. Now they’re going to have a say beyond their borders. This is one of the worst acts that a President of the United States could ever do because it’s so destructive to our country.”
And Nobody Wins, when one traitorous man, gives away what was not his to give…
Putin REALLY wanted his Russian Olympics to show the world the music and the history of Russia and he spared no expense. It’s the most expensive Olympics ever held. So, when one of the rings in the Olympic symbol didn’t show up at the opening ceremonies, and the giant structure could not be illuminated by fireworks as planned…no problem. While the rest of the world saw the snowflake that didn’t blossom into a ring, Russia saw what Putin wanted them to see on THEIR T.V’s.
Obama, on the other hand, while claiming to have the most transparent administration in history, has kept secret just about everything he does. Obamacare was done behind closed doors, the new Asia treaty is being done secretly without Congress, and today, he told French President …..
“I can do anything I want.”

This past Sunday evening former NSA contractor Edward Snowden sat down for an interview with German television network ARD.
The interview has been intentionally blocked from the US public, with virtually no major broadcast news outlets covering this story. In addition, the video has been taken down almost immediately every time it’s posted on YouTube.
In contrast, this was treated as a major political event in both print and broadcast media, in Germany, and across much of the world. In the interview, Mr. Snowden lays out a succinct case as to how these domestic surveillance programs undermine and erode human rights and democratic freedom.
He states that his “breaking point” was “seeing Director of National Intelligence, James Clapper, directly lie under oath to Congress” denying the existence of a domestic spying programs while under questioning in March of last year.
So which President wins the contest at being the biggest dictator when it comes to censorship this week?
Obama! It’s one thing to make an artistic decision, it’s quite another to bar the American people from being able to listen to one of the most important interviews held about the NSA.
And for that, Obama wins the gold.
And speaking of imperfection….
Does Bob Costas have pink eye? or was it just a case of Botox gone wrong? Let’s ask Joan Rivers, shall we?
The nuclear arms race is like two sworn enemies standing waist deep in gasoline, one with three matches, the other with five.”
I watched the movie Fat Man and Little Boy last night, and was pleasantly amazed how that movie, actually presented both sides of the moral issues of the American’s developing the Atomic bomb.
If you’ve never seen it, a brief refresher:
America is fighting a war on both ends of the world, and the government is looking for a way to end it, and so it is decided to gather the best physicists they can find (many of them German) at a top secret location and give them $2 billion dollars, a deadline, and tell them to just do it: give the U.S. the biggest bomb ever invented. Robert Oppenheimer, the lead genius, (Played by Dwight Schultz) is incredibly excited, but needs a general (played by Paul Newman) to keep pushing him, especially when word gets out exactly what they are doing and scientists start to protest against the use of it. The film is all about, what great minds can do when pushed.
Whatever you might think of the atomic weapons, the sheer ingenuity of it you have to admit, was beyond incredible. BUT…as you see in the scene above, with it came a double edged sword. Towards the final days when they were getting near to their bomb being near completion, many of the scientists started having second thoughts.
The very secrecy of the bomb, and the fact that even today, no one has told us if those hundreds of nuclear tests done by our country, left any permanent radioactive damage to the earth, means our government has held too many secrets way too long from the American people. The 300 nuclear aerial tests America did alone —-is enough to give one thought.
As you saw in the film in 1989, the bomb was invented to ‘protect us’…it was the reasoning that our government used to justify the money spent for all those explosions.
And now, although not seen as a weapon YET…we see the same thing happening with the spy technology being developed with the money from our government. Trillions are being spent…money we don’t have, but no matter.
Due to a whistleblower named Edward Snowdon, we have just found out how every one of our lives is being recorded, and eventually studied. No, unlike the atomic and hydrogen bomb, this technology can’t kill us, but like the atomic bomb, some of the computer scientists that help set up this program are very concerned. This technology, like the atomic bomb, will sooner or later be held by many other countries. There is already a ‘cyber’ war, and like the nuclear arms race, we now have a surveillance arms race. Great power will be put in the hands of the few.
The strong propaganda coming from both the RiNO’s and the Obama administration is that this unconstitutional data gathering is being sold as necessary for our own protection.
Robert Oppenheimer was asked to work on the Hydrogen bomb, and he refused. Edward Tiller, though, was happy to do it.
Today, we see a young genius named Zuckerberg all excited bout getting everybody in the world ONLINE…everybody. That means everybody in the world will be spied on. Nobody Knows how he is going to pay for this, but you can bet your next last FACEBOOK post about your dog eating your cell phone, that our government will find a way.
And Zuckerberg is no Oppenheimer. Many of these young boys playing god with the backing of Obama and Homeland security have NO idea the damage they might be doing. Like the atomic bomb, the sheer joy is just in doing it. They are doing it, for money, and because the technology excites them. They rationalize , that to know what every single human being on the planet is thinking, will give them the power, to make the world a better place.
But it’s sad but true, that this technology can ONLY lead to tyranny, because as the good doctor suggests: Nobody should play God, the position is already taken.
And so, history repeats itself.
The world now, is waiting for Iran or North Korea, to use a nuclear weapon. And with the upcoming NSA surveillance program, we now live in daily fear of what we say and do with every phone call, every internet post, every bank transaction…and they even want into our homes with TV monitoring and Google Glasses.
It’s a New World Order.
And NOBODY, except the people at the top, likes it.
“I believe in a Zone of Privacy,” Hillary Clinton. (For HER!)
Two days before the Trinity test, Oppenheimer expressed his hopes and fears in a quotation from the Bhagavad Gita:
In battle, in the forest, at the precipice in the mountains,
On the dark great sea, in the midst of javelins and arrows,
In sleep, in confusion, in the depths of shame,
The good deeds a man has done before defend him.
Nobody Thinks, that the ‘good deed’ fuse is getting shorter…don’t you?
Last week, here in Missouri, a hard-working rodeo clown put on a mask of Obama and asked the crowd if they would like to see Obama run down by a bull. The crowd loved it. ( I would have too.) Someone posted a video, and the Democrats jumped on that story like a pack of piranha’s snacking on Michael Moore left thigh for lunch.
Didn’t I tell you? Anything that they can make a racial issue out of…they will.
It’s a running joke that has been happening at rodeo’s across the nation since they started. In fact, wearing masks and making fun of Presidents has been a grand tradition since the beginning of our country…we have a Constitutional right to make fun of all politicians.
The clown was meant to be imitating a dummy, another witness, Missouri Rodeo Cowboy Association member David Berry, told the Associated Press. Bull ring clowns often dress as sitting presidents, Mr. Berry said.
What the hell is this? A redneck lynching? There has NOT been in my memory… a Halloween that’s gone by that somebody was not wearing a President’s mask. Ban all the people from wearing Presidents mask at Halloween then.
I’m sorry. Mr. Obama doesn’t get special privileges just because he’s half-black, and wants to play Hitler. The conservative people HATE Obama, not because he’s black, but because he is destroying their lives…of course they loved it.
We need to remind EVERYONE that we do have a first amendment right to free speech. This is a dangerous precedent, but Obama will not be mocked by anyone. And we have seen him come down on this poor man with the full force of his army.
Missouri is being blasted as being full of racists rednecks, and the poor man was barred from life from ever being a clown again. I would SUE if I were him.
I live in Missouri, and it is much like the country. Our black populations live mostly in St. Louis and Kansas City. The rest of the state is rural, and conservative. Our House AND Senate is Republican..
And yet…what never made sense to me is—-How could the state elect overwhelmingly a Republican House and Senate AND yet…get to the booth and go…Uh..well…I want Democrats to be in the top seats? No. Nope. Didn’t happen. Nope.
Mitt Romney did beat Obama there in 2012 by almost 10 points, 53.8 percent to 44.4 percent.
So, all these conservatives…voted for a Republican President, a Republican Congress…but decided to elect a Democrat (Jay Nixon) for governor? And Claire McCaskill for Senate? Claire ..who has always been a staunch Obama lover, is hated just as much as Obama by conservatives here in Missouri. How in the world did she get elected?”
I don’t think so. That I why I have always said….watch who the leaders are. It matters not what the people’s representatives do, if the guys at the top are ‘progressives.” And as long as they keep their hand-picked men at the top…let the people vote all they want. It’s rigged here in Missouri—all my gut instincts say so. Maybe not everywhere, but they take care of these things. How ELSE did the Clintons stay in power for so long?
The White House spokesman, Josh Earnest, said this:
“It was certainly not one of the finer moments in our state.”
Well Josh, as a native Missourian I have this to say:
“The election of Barack Obama was not one of the finer moments in our history. In fact, he is probably next to Bill Clinton, the biggest mistake we ever made. Obama is against all the things that we love as Americans. Sam Adams would be leading the tea party throwing his basketballs into the ocean. Obama doesn’t like white, gun-toting, bible clinging Americans, and they don’t like him.
And this Halloween, I am wearing my Obama mask when I answer the door. It would do the country well if all conservatives put on his mask, and give the kids….nothing, or take their candy away. They are never too young to learn who their enemies are and what communism is all about. In fact, if that clown doesn’t want that mask anymore he can send it to my house.
This week, we have two very special young men who forgot, that they no longer can say what they think. It’s now becoming almost an epidemic among the young and old, this speaking out against our government, and is causing our benevolent government, who only wish to protect and defend us, quite a headache.
We saw in my last post that a young soldier talked against the military on FACEBOOK, and got put into a mental institution. Last month, Larry Conners, a veteran news reporter in St. Louis, was fired because he posted on his FACEBOOK page the fact that he was audited after he interviewed Obama.
So you see, people are really getting sloppy about speaking their mind about their government on social media outlets, and while our astute government can’t keep their eye on every terrorist, it does catch some of them.
Yes, FACEBOOK users beware; If you have to be a moron and speak against the government, better keep it off of FACEBOOK. (Write an obscure blog like me!)
First: Patrick Brown, was using his intellect and his social media skills to invoke conversation among his fellow students as to how to solve the spending problems in their schools: And for that crime, he was suspended for three days.
A high-school student in upstate New York has been suspended and accused of trying to incite “a social media riot” after he suggested budget cuts for his public school – beginning with elimination of his principal’s job. Then Brown said, “I was called down to the office and told I was being suspended for harassment of teachers, [while] no harassment was ever committed.”
Students and Twitter users posted ideas for to save money, including the following:
- “Cinema, I’m sorry, but really, you pay a teacher to have kids watch movies?”
- “Anime club”
The Supreme Court ruled in 1969 that students have a right to self-expression, as long as that expression doesn’t disrupt class work or school activities or invade the rights of others.
Yes, Patrick was disrupting class work, he took precious time away from the classes. Students and teachers were actually starting to THINK about something other than Porky’s Three. And this was in clear violation of the right of the principal to get paid more than most of the property tax payers in his district, for doing nothing more than showing up and monitoring the young student girl’s skirts on camera. That is really hard and demanding work, and he deserves every dollar he makes.
Second: Cameron D’Ambrosio, a rapper who wants to be famous but lacks in frontal lobe development, (see video below) made the mistake of bragging how much damage he would do to…well just about everybody.
A wannabe, self-publishing rapper was arrested after publishing lyrics on his facebook profile that contained the line, “a boston bombinb wait till u see the sh– I do.” (I deleted the expletive). The loathsome 18-year-old Cameron D’Ambrosio has been held in jail since his arrest on May 1. Bail was initially set at $1 million, which was effectively the same as denying bail altogether.
As the author points out:
Funny, I can’t remember any real terrorists posting threats on the web in their own names when anyone could look up and visit their residences. Dangerous people don’t let you know they’re coming. I’m old enough to remember 2 Live Crew and their graphic lyrics about assaulting women. Not only were they never convicted of threatening anyone—despite the fact that rape culture in Hip Hop is a far more common reality in the US than terrorist attacks—but their rap “music” was legally sold in stores and no state was allowed to restrain it on First Amendment grounds. There few legal troubles only served to publicize their album.
So, the ignorant young rapper, was just being a rapper, and talking shit. This guy couldn’t hurt a turtle on a roadway. We have heard stronger statements coming out of famous liberals, like: “All tea party people should die! Rush Limbaugh should die! Glenn Beck should die! etc., etc., ” I’m sure you remember all the nasty comments about Sarah Palin. Liberals can threatened anyone, and nobody is arrested.
Frankly, this stoned out kid, who obviously is very scared of someone in his high school, made the mistake of mentioning the Boston Bombing. If he had threaten to bomb Fox News Headquarters, he be a free man. He’s be the next star on American Idol.
The man who posted a video against Islam was arrested. But as far as we know, the many artists who portray Jesus as a turd…are having cappuccino’s in the Hampton’s with Barbara Walters.
You would THINK people would learn: You cannot just say anything anymore, unless you’re Joe Biden.
So, who wins the Nobody’s Perfect award for the week?
Isn’t it obvious? Our current Nazi Obama government, who have thrown away our 1st amendment rights. In Obama’s America, you are guilty until proven innocent, unless of course, you work for the government.
And now, for you entertainment: Here’s some of Cam’s video’s. Try not to laugh…remember— Thank Obama for taking this dangerous man off the streets.
Once upon a time, the only thing that could get you in trouble in the land of the free and the home of the brave was squeezing the Charmin.
But, not anymore. The Boston bomber wasn’t the only one arrested last week, two other very dangerous individuals were also arrested by our brave law officers, but in different states.
First Dangerous Criminal: From Virginia…Jared Lardieri it seems wore ‘offensive’ clothing to school, so he was suspended and then, arrested.
This from the Blaze:
Allen Lardieri (Jared’s father) says that he was informed by Logan City Police on Thursday that his son was facing two charges, obstructing an officer and disrupting the education process. However, Jared’s attorney Ben White says that wasn’t the police department’s call to make.
“He was arrested, he was put into handcuffs, he was removed from the school and brought to the Logan City Police Department,” White said. “Charges aren’t officially filed or brought until the prosecuting attorney’s signs off on them and they don’t do that willy nilly. They do that after a thorough investigation.”
While you and I know, there IS no education process going on in our public schools to disrupt, there had to be another reason he was expelled. Obviously the teachers were very upset at someone expressing their support of the Constitution, which according to the 1st and 4th amendment, gives him the right to have a gun, and wear a tee-shirt with a picture of it on the front. After all, he didn’t bring a gun to school.
So, not only do they want guns outlawed, they want the pictures of the guns outlawed too. Unless of course your tee- shirt had a picture of a police officer holding a M-16. THAT would be okay.
The school district’s dress code prohibits profanity, violence, discriminatory messages, but as noted in this report, gun images are not on the list.
What seemed to really make the elites high and mighty liberal teachers mad, was that most of the students were supporting the kid and were wearing the same shirts.
Second Dangerous Criminal: In Missouri, the land of “Drugs are sold in hallways of all high schools” a mother got so frustrated with watching her kid get hooked on heroin, she went after the heroin pusher herself, because the armed cops could care less, and she is now facing up to a year in jail:
A Missouri mother is becoming a bit of a folk hero after facing charges for attacking her son’s alleged heroin dealer with an aluminum baseball bat.
Sherrie Gavan of Imperial, near St. Louis, was arraigned Monday on charges of third-degree assault. According to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, she tried everything to protect her son, Clayton, including change his high school. But when all of her efforts failed, the desperate mother drove to the home of 21-year-old Joshua Loyd — her son’s presumed heroin dealer — and struck him with an aluminum bat. She claimed that she went to Loyd’s home to tell him to stay away from her son and her family, but after witnessing Loyd retrieve an item from his car, she became fearful. That’s when she returned to her car to get the bat.
“How can we as law enforcement turn our backs on someone who has been assaulted?” Boyer told the paper. “I understand her intentions, but we have laws.”
Yes…that’s the new mantra: We have laws. And you cannot assault our drug dealers.
How do we fight this insanity? Well…if all the kids in all the public schools got NRA tee-shirts and wore them every day, sooner or later they’d have to close the schools down.
As for the mother: She picked the wrong weapon. I would have smacked him really hard in the head with an NRA tee-shirt. According to Obama’s law, it’s a very dangerous weapon.
But it’s not. Nobody Knows, but Nobody suspects that the Clintons, now that they have gotten all their debts paid off, are now going after Obama.
It’s not only the Republicans that are bickering.
Let’s go back. Long ago, everyone pretty much hated Richard Nixon…and little is known that it was Hillary Clinton that was one of the lawyers…that helped bring Nixon down. But they couldn’t do it without the Washington Post and Bob Woodard.
The official in question is Gene Sperling, economic adviser to the President. The White House has since pushed back, saying the exchange was far more innocuous than Woodward claims.
I hate to say this: But you could say that saying “you will regret this” is hardly sending out a drone. It’s a threat, but do we really believe this hasn’t happened before in the Clinton White House?
How many of Bill Clinton’s past “women” were threatened? Jennifer Flowers for one–in fact, all of them. Is the fact that Bob Woodard is a icon reporter that makes it more of a crime for the White House to threaten you? We have ALL been threatened daily by this President, what makes Bob Woodward so special?
Here’s the big threat from Gene:
But I do truly believe you should rethink your comment about saying that Potus asking for revenues is moving the goal post. I know you may not believe this, but as a friend, I think you will regret staking out that claim.
Nobody Knows how big a deal that was (really, my neighbors have said worst to me) but when Lanny Davis, a die-hard true blue Hillary cohort in crime, comes out and admits that the Obama White House threatened his editor about his columns, then Nobody sees a pattern here?
This is nothing new. The White House has been used both during the Clinton years and the Obama years as a very dark and sinister force that will and can destroy your life.
What’s interesting here is that maybe Hillary has now seen that if she is going to pick an X-President as her running mate in 2016, she might as well pick her husband…or a woman.
If all this speculation of my Nobody Mind is true…I have to laugh.
Michelle Obama will still get her own daytime talk TV show. Who knows what will become of Obama? He’ll get sent to the U.N. most probably.
You bet. Why did he wait to even report this until now?
“Mirror Mirror on the Wall Who’s the cleverest democrat of them all?”
While watching the Clintons go after Obama will be fun..remember, with the Clinton’s, a Disney ending is all but left in the mirror reflecting the same old hags.
It’s said, Sam Adams started the Revolution, and he did it with the mighty pen. And since he really didn’t want his name on all his ranting against the crown…he made up all kinds of names for his penname:
Philo Patriae and Paces, Vindex the Avenger, Determinatus, Decant Ara Togae, (weapons are under my cloak!) Principiis Obsta: (principle obstacle) , Valerius Poplicola, Candidus, and Populus. He was also: An American, A Tory, Alfred, A Son of Liberty, A Puritan, and A Religious Politician– among many.
And Sam wasn’t the only one who wanted to remain anonymous.
Benjamin Franklin was Silence Dogood, and Polly Baker and Richard Saunders and Anthony Afterwit, Martha Careful, Alice Addertongue, Celia Shortface, Harry Meanwell, Fanny Mournful, Obadiah Plainman, Busy Body, and Sidi Mehemt Ibrahim.
John Adams was Sui Juris, U, Davila, and Humphrey Ploughjogger…and my personal favorite: Novanglus. (which means New England.)
James Madison was Helvidius and Cato…
After Thomas Paine wrote an anonymous pamphlet criticizing President George Washington‘s policies, John Quincy Adams (John’s son) wrote a series of anonymous articles called “Publicola”, defending the president. They were so well done people assumed his father wrote them.
And I even write under a pen name…Joyanna is a combination of my first name and my grandmother’s name…and Adams is not my married name, but I picked it out of respect to the founding Adams, as I am a direct descendant of that family on my mother’s side.
I really didn’t want anyone to know my married name.
In this country, writing under a pen name, thus remaining anonymous, has been protected by the Supreme Court.
In its 1960 decision in Talley v. California, the Supreme Court ruled that a law forbidding individuals from distributing handbills without identifying their identity unconstitutionally infringed on the First Amendment’s guarantee to free speech. The Court declared:
Anonymous pamphlets, leaflets, brochures and even books have played an important role in the progress of mankind. Persecuted groups and sects from time to time throughout history have been able to criticize oppressive practices and laws either anonymously or not at all. . . . Before the Revolutionary War colonial patriots frequently had to conceal their authorship or distribution of literature that easily could have brought down on them prosecutions by English-controlled courts. . . . It is plain that anonymity has sometimes been assumed for the most constructive purposes.
SO…what in the world is this new bill being proposed in the Illinois Senate all about?
A new bill proposed in the Illinois State Senate looks to completely wipe out any form of anonymity on the internet by requiring that the operators of basically any website on the entire internet take down any comment that isn’t attached to an IP, address, and real name-verified poster.
It’s called the Internet Posting Removal Act and was introduced on February 13th by Illinois General Assembly veteran Ira I. Silverstein [D]. Not wanting to leave any bases uncovered, Silverstein includes that an “Anonymous Poster” means “any individual who posts a message on a web site including social networks, blogs, forums, message boards, or any other discussion site where people can hold conversations in the form of posted messages.”
If James Madison, Alexander Hamilton and John Jay were alive and publishing under the false name “Publius” today, they would be prime candidates for prosecution under Virginia’s anti-spam law, and the Internet Posting Removal Act. They would most likely be using the Internet to get their message out to as many fellow citizens as possible. They could be arrested for speaking their minds on important issues of the day.
Clearly, Obama’s government wants to know WHO is writing the essays and blogs against them. Sure, there are some bad people out there spamming, but making it a crime to not sign your real name is not how are country was founded.
It is a right, given to us by our founders. If not for them, we wouldn’t be here.
And I’m sure Alice Addertongue would agree with me 100 percent!
“Enemy of the State” is one of my favorite movies. Will Smith plays the main character, and he is hunted by the NSA because, although, he doesn’t know it, he was slipped a video of a Senator having someone murdered. It’s a great action film, but I wonder how many people believed in what the film was trying to educate the American public on: Everything we say or do, can be, without warrant..observed. The fact is, all of our data is being stored. The new technology that we are all excited about, is being used by our government to spy on us….and yet, we all are conditioned that it’s necessary.
If you talk about this to ANYONE..they always say, “Well hey! I’m not doing anything wrong, why should I worry?”
Or…as they once said in Nazi Germany, “They didn’t come after ME..I wasn’t Jewish, so I just didn’t worry about it.”
It was around the time of that movie, (1998) that I started noticing blackouts when I was listening to the radio. I couldn’t blame them on just random radio waves causing static, because I observed that they always happened right when some conservative talk show host was about to reveal something sinister about our government. They happened when I listened to Rush Limbaugh, or Alex Jones on Coast to Coast, and many other stations. They still happen time and again, but ONLY when some secret is about to be revealed, so no…I don’t believe my neighbor is turning on his Wi-Fi at the exact same time I’m waiting for the secret to be revealed. Nope—- because this even happens when I’m listening to the radio in my car at the exact moment when I am going, “Wow…I can’t BELIEVE they are going to talk about this…finally…somebody is going to talk about this!” And then you hear the first word and then—–ZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ…
Last night I was listening to the radio, and George Noory was interviewing a man who’s FACEBOOK account had been taken down…because he put up a Gandhi quote:
The reports are absolutely true. Facebook suspended the Natural News account earlier today after we posted an historical quote from Mohandas Gandhi. The quote reads:
“Among the many misdeeds of British rule in India, history will look upon the Act depriving a whole nation of arms as the blackest.” – Mohandas Gandhi, an Autobiography, page 446.
This historical quote was apparently too much for Facebook’s censors to bear. They suspended our account and gave us a “final warning” that one more violation of their so-called “community guidelines” would result in our account being permanently deactivated.
Evidently, this is happening to many conservatives sites. I’ve never been a fan of Facebook, because frankly, I think it’s a government dream which is gathering information on you, and your friends, and every single thing about you. And how does this make us any different than China? When Obama gathers all the heads of the great social media sites in the White House, it’s not to talk about his golf game.
He is collaborting with them.
According to an article on Drudge: China has tightened internet controls, legalizing the deletion of posts or pages which are deemed to contain “illegal” information.
So, now we are starting it here. We are becoming China.
Because this is happening in bits and pieces, no one is much concerned about this. But yesterday I checked out a book at the library, and for the first time (I’m been checking out library books for over 50 years.) I found blocks of paragraphs …just blacked out. (see photo)
So, they couldn’t block the book, but now it seems the government can blank out what they don’t want the public to read.
Add up all these little bits and pieces and you can see what’s coming.
Now, the aim is to “fundamentally” change America, and destroying our Bill of Righs..free speech, guns, and right to privacy is already in the making. And the words of Sam Donaldson are freightening. He indicates that tea party people’s ideas are old and outdated, but the fact is, these old and outdated rights of freedom are being replaced with the new tyranny of soft communism…and Sam considers himself privy to the “new America” where one man will decide just about everything.
The tea party people are for freedom. It’s that simple.
The “tea party” people, are being attacked like the Jews of old. And pretty soon, putting up any quotation from the Constitution will be taken down.
It’s been done bit by bit…on purpose, but be prepared for one day to wake up, and like my friend Mona says…on our TV will be…”THE STATE.”
And if you don’t go along with it…you will be…the enemy. If you are a “tea party” American patriot…you already are.
Remember…once upon a time Sam Adams head was on the top of King George’s list. You are in…good company.
Our founders gave us the best Constitution in the world…let’s not lose it.
–My favorite video of the day.
Free speech. Both Hillary and Obama’s whole purpose of the Benghazi response–by Susan Rice, Hillary, and Obama at the UN…, was to start the United States on the path to making it a crime to speak against Islam. That’s not to say they both shouldn’t be impeached for the crimes they BOTH committed in letting those poor men die…but they know they won’t. They have now consolidated their power.
They are implenting the U.N. wishes, and Obama’s.
They are beyond touching. We should all be screaming “TERM LIMITS” at the top of our lungs, right after we finish shouting “Impeach the bastards!” for at least ten days straight in front of the White House. In fact, I’m still for taking all power away from the office of the President, but I take it I’m the only one on that boat. If Nobody pays any attention whatsoever to the Constitution? What good is it?
Obama should be impeached. Instead, he has his friends calling him “the savior.”
And so, while vaccines will someday be mandatory, and chips in our school children…mandatory, can we expect that we will be forced to HONOR all Muslims for fear of arrest?
They already did it….they arrested a man for speaking agaisnt Islam. And you bet they wanted you to notice. If they had arrested a “white republican” the nation would have been up in arms…But they were very clever, they picked out a Muslim…and that’s how it’s done! You got the message, but didn’t riot too much. He didn’t LOOK like an American.
You must admit…when it comes to being dictators, these people are good.
Nobody Thinks it’s very sad that Rand Paul is the only Congressman delivering this message to us…telling us just how far our rights have been taken away, without even much of a peep. And I got this in an email or I would have missed it.
Yes, we are being censored, photographed, spied on, and watched with creepy Big Brother eyes, and we don’t even know it, —-OR think about it much, do we?
Recently I downloaded Google Crome and I couldn’t even put up a post on WordPress. I was thinking it was WordPress…but no…I took off Google Crome and was back in business. I can’t help but wonder if I was being ‘tea party censored’ or it was a computer thing. I suspect, both.
Anyway, I thouight Rand’s message was an important one. So—Rand wins the ‘Nobody’s Fool’ award of the week!
(If I had a lot of money…I’d send him some!)
Here we are, just a week after the election, and if it was lawful to print out the bad news on the internet and burn them in some kind of puritanical ritual in my back yard…I would. But, that was outlawed years ago. Here’s a few headlines:
Figures obtained by The Associated Press through a freedom of information request show a steadily rising tally of prosecutions in Britain for electronic communications — phone calls, emails and social media posts — that are “grossly offensive or of an indecent, obscene or menacing character — from 1,263 in 2009 to 1,843 in 2011. The number of convictions grew from 873 in 2009 to 1,286 last year.
NO MORE TWINKIES: When you can’t stop Americans from eating fatting sugary sweets because they are cheap and good, you simply make the employers pay heavy Obamacare fines. It seems, on top of its troubles, Hostess Brands’ Union workers are striking.
Hostess Brands CEO said Wednesday the company will liquidate unless striking workers return to the job by the end of the day on Thursday. “We simply do not have the financial resources to survive an ongoing national strike,” Greg Rayburn said in a statement.
NUTTY CANADIAN MOTHERS: When one kid gets sneezy around nuts, what does a mother do? Go out and get her free government- paid- for allergy prescription for her son? NO! You cut down that dangerous forest!
Canadian mother Donna Giustizia, motivated by the danger surrounding childhood nut allergies, is on a mission to have the oak trees near her kid’s school removed. Her reasoning? She believes that the acorns that frequently drop from these trees put children with severe allergies at risk.
SOCIAL ENGINNERING SCIENTISTS HELPED OBAMA: When it comes to manipulating people, our social engineering scientists make Goebbels look like he’s still in Kindergarten. Obama won, with the help of our finest human behavior scientist!
This apparent reliance on a scientific model of human behavior was, apparently, unprecedented. The scientists who the Obama campaign informally consulted with on this approach had offered their services to the Kerry campaign in 2004 and were rebuffed. A few Senators had met with them about using their ideas, but nothing concrete had emerged. However, those involved told the Times that they did see traces of their own ideas reflected in the Obama campaign’s actual strategy:
MORE LAID OFF: Yes, YOU voted for it!
John Metz — who runs 40 Denny’s and Dairy Queens and owns the Hurricane Grill & Wings franchise — says his business will be hit hard by the January 2014 start of President Barack Obama’s healthcare mandate. Obamacare will make businesses or franchises with more than 50 workers to offer a government-approved insurance plan. Other restaurant chains including Papa John’s, Olive Garden and Red Lobsters have already announced that they will have to reduce employees’ hours. Either that or they will have to pay a penalty of $2,000 for each full-time worker in businesses with more than 30 workers.
“It’s an attempt to return not just to Soviet times but to the Stalin era, when any conversation with a foreigner was seen as a potential threat to the state,” said Lyudmila Alexeyeva, 85, a former Soviet dissident and veteran human rights activist.
And if that isn’t enough to make you wonder…add to that list that Warren Buffet is already promoting Hillary Clinton for President, Obama has mandated police departments all over the country to let members of Mosques train at our local police stations, and the New World Order of human behavior has introduced “Meatless Mondays.” I don’t care if Paul McCartney is meatless…I will continue to eat meat on Mondays until they drag me away.
And NBC is going to do a TV series to trash the reputation of the best President we ever had: George Washington.
And THIS is just one day’s headlines…
Nobody can wait to hear tomorrow’s.
How many times I’ve heard from readers, saying…that’s just not true Joyanna! According to Snopes…yada, yada…etc…and sure enough, whatever I had posted, even though I had researched it somewhat on the internet, was usually told to be wrong..by Snopes. Here is an email sent to me last week, explaining that Snopes is financed by George Soros. He is also financing information being handed out the Girl Scouts telling them where to go to find the “truth.”
(Clever: Set up websites that claim to tell the truth, and then lies.)
So I switch to the Rush Limbaugh program, where Judge Napolitano was saying that Ron Paul was just about the only candidate who could actually save us. The first station came in clear as a bell: Rush’s Station..had so much static, you could not make out a word that the Judge was saying….even with the volume maxed.
(Thanks to Tom Beebe)
Many of the emails that I have sent or forwarded that had any anti-Obama in it were negated by Snopes. I thought that was odd. Check this out.
Snopes, Soros and the Supreme Courts Kagan
We-l-l-l-l now, I guess the time has come to check out Snopes! Ya’ don’t suppose it might not be a good time to take a second look at some of the stuff that got kicked in the ditch by Snopes, do ya’? We’ve known that it was owned by a lefty couple but hadn’t known it to be financed by Soros. Snopes is heavily financed by George Soros: a big time supporter of Obama.
In our Search for the truth department, we find what I have suspected on many occasions. I went to Snopes to check something about the dockets of the new Supreme Court Justice, Elena Kagan who Obama appointed and Snopes said the email was false and there were no such dockets so I Googled the Supreme Court, typed in Obama-Kagan, and guess what? Yep you got it; Snopes Lied! Everyone of those dockets are there.
So–Here is what I wrote to Snopes: Referencing the article about Elena Kagan and Barak Obama dockets: The information you have posted stating that there were no such cases as claimed and the examples you gave are blatantly false. I went directly to the Supreme Courts website, typed in Obama Kagan and immediately came up with all of the dockets that the article made reference to. I have long suspected that you really slant things but this was really shocking.
Thank You, I hope you will be much more truthful in the future, but I doubt it. That being said, I’ll bet you didn’t know this. Kagan was representing Obama in all the petitions to prove his citizenship. Now she may help rule on them.
Folks, this is really ugly. Chicago Politics: and the beat goes on and on and on. Once again the US Senate sold us out!
Now we know why Obama nominated Elana Kagan for the Supreme Court. Pull up the Supreme Courts website, go to the docket and search for Obama. She was the Solicitor General for all the suits against him filed with the Supreme Court to show proof of natural born citizenship. He owned her big time.
All of the requests were denied of course. They were never heard. It just keeps getting deeper and deeper, doesn’t it?
The American people mean nothing any longer. It’s all about payback time for those who compromised themselves to elect someone who really has no true right to even be there. Here are some websites of the Supreme Court Docker: You can look up some of these hearings and guess what? Elana Kagan is the attorney representing Obama!
Check out these examples:
If you are not interested in justice or in truth, simply delete. However, if you hold sacred the freedoms granted to you by the U.S. Constitution; by all means, PASS it ON! There truly is tyranny afoot.
There’s something about a football coach being labeled a pedophile that’s just creepy. We all saw the interview that Bob Costas did with the Penn State Coach, Jerry Sandusky. He admitted he love being around the kids, taking showers with them, and sometimes he touched their legs.
Who does that sound like? YEP…Michael Jackson. The man who loved the children of the world so much he had pajama parties where they all came and slept in his bed. He told the press that he just never had a childhood, and everything he did was for ‘the children’.
Yeah, right. After he was brought up on sexual molestation charges,(How many years had he been doing this stuff?) he left the country, (lived with a Saudi Prince for a while..mmm) then quickly adopted three white kids whom I’m sure Michael— being crafty and smart, knew would clear his name someday.
The coach evidently had a good game face too and a close-knit group of university buddies, who stood by and said nothing. They were elites.
We’d be absolutely naive to think both of them were innocent of molesting kids.
Here’s what Joseph Farah says about the subject;
Now that being accused of homophobia is considered an offense, while practicing homosexuality is considered a virtue, should it really surprise anyone that such behavior would go unreported or unchallenged for so long?
In an age when government schools are actually teaching children how to perform homosexual acts and that there is nothing wrong with them, it would seem that an environment conducive for predators of children is being created under the watchful eye of the state and the media.
BUT…Nobody Thinks there’s a bigger problem here: There is something that these two cases have in common with two other cases: People are looking the other way when they see a crime. People know, they might be the ones prosecuted, and to protect themselves, they do nothing. When you have a country ruled by MEN, not laws, that’s what happens.
For instance, when I reported my Muslims neighbors maybe making bombs in their back yard at night, the FBI was nice, but my mayor was unbelievable rude. He suggested I MOVE. I still wonder if someday this band of men that I saw meeting every night for months will not some set off some kind of attack…planned right here in the middle of America.
And I did everything I could to warn them.
Before the Columbine attacks the police knew a year in advance that one boy, Eric Harris was especially dangerous. A family who he had been threatening with death, on his “death” website (in which he also put his plans of demolishing the whole school and HOW he was going to do it) had this family so scared they went to the police dozens of times…warning them. The police filed a report after finding a pipe bomb near the house. Eric was a clear psychopath. It was all over his website.
BUT…the police did nothing. Didn’t even do a search at his home (he bragged about making bombs online) or tell his parents. The people were pretty much told to go home and shut up.
Later, after the event the police hide the files in a cover up.
Then there was Nidal Malik Hasan, who fired into US soldiers at Fort Hood killing 13 and wounding 29. The army knew for two whole years that this guy was about to explode.
“They did not act in part because they valued the rare diversity of having a Muslim psychiatrist” military investigators wrote in previously undisclosed reports.
Some people simply can’t process the horrors in front of them. Some people suffer from what the psychologist call Normalcy Bias. When they find themselves in some unsettling circumstance, they shut down and pretend everything is normal.
David would therefore forgive the boys at Columbine, and Nidal Hasan because he would say they are missing something in their cognitive thinking, and anybody witnessing crimes could be excused from…being too sensitive.
Nobody Thinks David really enjoys psychoanalyzing himself on paper. We are being programmed, in our movies, our educational system, and our politically correct laws, not to talk against gays, Muslim, Superstars, politicians…unless of course you are in the Tea Party…then Ms Maxine Waters wants you to go to hell.
But to see a child being molested and not do anything? Mr. Farah is right.
The faculty at the University, protected their own, so as to keep the money rolling in. Michael Jackson was a black man. You’re a racist if you even attack their most beloved star. Our Congressmen and Presidents commit crimes, and nobody does a thing. They are exempt for any law. “Some are more equal than others.”
Nobody Wins when a society becomes so programmed to fear repercussions from the ‘state’ that they will look the other way at injustices. We saw it happen in Germany, and in a small creepy way, it’s happening right here in America.
When they came for the Jews, I said nothing…
