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…
“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.
