One mean and nasty man named Barry Diller, says he will leave the country if another mean and nasty business man (Donald Trump) becomes President…Will he? Do we little nobodies care? By the looks of him, we ought to be glad that he is leaving the country…
Mr. Barry said: “I don’t think it’s got anything to do with American anger at the elites. He has no communication strategy—”
Nobody Knows how low an IQ can go, but something tells me that Mr. Barry doesn’t get off his luxury jet much. And to say that Trump has no communications strategy? Yes he does…it’s called…freedom of speech, Mr. Barry. And that’s why many people love him. He speaks with common sense and doesn’t run it through some million-dollar think tank. At least Donald has hair.
And speaking of mean and nasty…Obama is threatening to veto the defense bill if Congress doesn’t close Guantanamo Bay. Raha Wala, senior counsel at Human Rights First, noted Obama’s threatened vetoes before.
“We’ve heard many times that the president would veto bills over Guantánamo restrictions, and he’s never done it,” Wala said in an email. “What we need now is action. The Defense Authorization would prevent the president from closing Guantánamo before he leaves office. If he wants to close Guantánamo, the president must veto the bill and demand that Congress remove the restrictions on transferring detainees.”
So, our Presdient cares more about the jihadist murdering Muslims in Guantanmo Bay then he does about making sure our military men and women have the right stuff to continue to protect our country. Are you surprised?
Nobody Knows if John Bonehead will cave in and close it, saying that it was the only thing he could do to take care of our men and women in uniform, but I thinks the odds are better in that happening, than in me winning the PowerBall next week.
And going with that thought that Obama is more Muslim than American, it seems some brave journalist in Germany have more guts than the journalists here in America…He actually put up a picture of Merkel in a burka.
This is causing an outrage in Germany among some liberals:
The broadcaster defended the use of the image. “Of course it was also the of this artwork to provoke and polarise opinion,” it said in a statement.
“We consider this satirical form of representation to be in keeping with our journalistic values. We reject any insinuation that we would operate Islamophobic propaganda.”
And speaking of a phobia…our elite leaders: (All of them but a few I’m afraid) had Drudgeaphobia. They will soon be putting The Drudge Report out of business, if you listen to Drudge explain it. Drudge talks about himself in the video below, but to hear an even scarier fear from Matt, go check out this interview on Alex Jones site.
Soon the Supreme Court is going to come down HARD on copyright laws, and all in order to get rid of the great Matt Drudge, conservative Americans, and free press ANYWHERE on the internet. First they came for the Jews…and then the Christians, and then the patriots, and ….then…if this actually happens? Oh. God. Do people really know what that means?
Like Matt says…our days on the internet are numbered. Soon, it will belong to the state propaganda, and porn.
Will America fight? Or will we just twitter on?
I had to post this today, because in my own family, this is happening. This Nobody (me) has been notified to STOP talking about religion and politics around her family. Of course THEY are allowed to talk about it, usually saying to me, things that cause my eyebrows to raise beyond my forehead line. My right eyebrow is floating somewhere near the Space Station.
In fact, trying to muzzle my own opinions is like trying to muzzle elephants on a rampage. I’m winning my own muzzling so far….but….my eyes might pop out…I might have to say something to someone. Hopefully—I’ll find the nearest lamp post and be allowed to remain in the family.
I thought it was only MY problem…this “We don’t want to be upset about the current state of our country.” so…shut up, until I watched this video.
Is anybody else having this problem in their families?
(Thanks to Mark Dice)
These Russian girls were arrested for “twerking” in front of a war memorial, but I’m not seeing the twerk. Putin decided to put them in jail for a few days:
Three young women in southern Russia will serve up to 15 days in prison, on charges of hooliganism, after posting a video of themselves performing the hip-hop dance on YouTube, with a war memorial looming in the background. Two more of the six women in the video had their punishments reduced to a fine, for health reasons. One of the dancers was under 16, and avoided punishment, which was transferred to her mother, who was reprimanded for failing to “carry out measures to ensure the proper physical, intellectual, psychological, spiritual and moral development of the child,”
Here in America, our politicians are much more concerned that our citizens have the right to destroy property, as the Mayor of Baltimore said was a right that should be granted in riots.
If Madonna wanted to twerk in front of the WWII memorial in Washington D.C., Obama would close the park down and invite guests. So we have freedom of the twerk here in America,
But, you can’t drink a lot of soda in New York.
To me, it looked just like some girls who love to dance, (which young girls tend to do) trying to get some attention. Although, I must admit, those stripped pants are questionable. You can’t take your eyes off them, which was rather clever.
What I found more offensive than the video, was this comment below it:
Leave twerking for black girls, why white girls would lower them self to this cheap dance, and I not think is sexy at all just ridiculous.
What? White girls can’t dance? I think that front girl did a pretty good job.
This week, we have C.J. Pearson VS Bibi Netanyahu.
Let’s start with the obvious: Obama is making a secret deal with Iran, and in typical dictator fashion, he refuses to let anybody see the deal he is making, but word is, it’s a lousy deal. Obama who believes it’s Iran’s civil right to have nuclear capability, is making that happen.
And so what did Bibi do to piss of an American President? He dared to say, that he intends to protect his country and that Obama’s deal with Iran will endanger Israel to possible nuclear attack. In fact, it’s a certainty.
Because we have been friends with Israel ever since its founding….our Congress invited him to speak, which enraged King Obama. So, Obama got all his court democratic jesters to protest and say things like this:
Diane Feinstein, the Democratic senator from California, told CNN on Sunday that Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s contention that he is speaking for all Jews in lobbying against an agreement between the US and Iran is “arrogant.”
And then there’s the 12-year-old C. J. Pearson who became an internet sensation when he put his very impressive thinking on Youtube. He said that he didn’t believe that Obama loved the country. And for that…he got kicked off Facebook.
So who wins the Nobody’s Perfect Award for the week? Was it Bibi, who dared to try to warn the world that Obama was about to commit treason, not only against an ally but against his own country?
Or was it C.J. Pearson, who dared to criticized King Obama for being such a putz? And why him? LOTS of videos grace Facebook saying a lot of bad things about Obama. Could it be…it’s because he’s black? And other young black men are listening?
Obama. For being the most treasonous President ever to walk the halls of the White House.
May Sam Adams throw some tea down on his tyrannical head.
OR maybe—- it should be Facebook.
Take your pick.
First: Watch Monica say the words, “Whore, slut, tramp,—- skank…wait.. she left that one out. Good think I remembered to put it back in….I’m sure she just forgot to add it.
She said those words…slowly, savoring each one, to make SURE you remembered those words, and how much they hurt her, and if you don’t think Bill and Hillary have been orchestrating Monika’s reappearance in time, for Hillary’s upcoming Presidential run, and controlling the internet BEFORE that run, then I’d say you probably are having a hell-of-a-life and I, for one, would love to trade places with you.
Methinks Monica protests too much. Speaking as a woman, if she was insulted at all through the whole “Bill Clinton poked Monika” fiasco, it was the fat jokes.
I remember that sweet-doe eyed, perfectly made up, Marilyn Monroe whispering voice Monika during the impeachment proceedings, AFTER the Ken Starr fiasco, when she was interviewed by Barbara Walters. I thought she was one of the most egotistical little rich girls I’d ever seen. She was so obviously smitten with her own beauty…and in HER mind, the most powerful man in the world found HER attractive enough to pork her whenever he could find time in-between cigars, and she was now…famous. It was the most exciting thing that had EVER happened to her.
Everyone now knew…that Monika..was very good at sex.
The little nobody from nowhere became a world-wide goddess…”the other woman.” Famous. Overnight. Who could have dreamed it?
Monika in her own mind, was now one of the most special women in world history. So what if she was a bit fat? Bill obviously LIKED her that way. And she was forever more…famous.
What’s not shown in this video is that she personally attacked the Drudge Report, who broke the story that nobody in the mainstream media had the guts to publish, because, back then, the Clinton’s had all the mainstream CNN, CBS, TIME doing their propaganda.
Monika said in this speech that Drudge was a nobody at the time, and that’s a huge lie. At the time, Drudge was on fire. Everyone was reading Drudge. If he was a nobody, nobody would have even known about it.
No, the real reason we are seeing Monika now, is to be used for Hillary’s elections. The Clinton’s are using Monika to gain ‘sympathy’ for “hate” speech as to what it can do to a country. (Notice she put that in there. )
They want to that be able to censure that damn internet so that Hillary will be able to control what is said about her and Bill right up into the election.
In clear succinct words: They want…PAYBACK:
In a surprise move late Friday, a key Democrat on the Federal Election Commission called for burdensome new rules on Internet-based campaigning, prompting the Republican chairman to warn that Democrats want to regulate online political sites and even news media like the Drudge Report.
Democratic FEC Vice Chair Ann M. Ravel announced plans to begin the process to win regulations on Internet-based campaigns and videos, currently free from most of the FEC’s rules. “A reexamination of the commission’s approach to the internet and other emerging technologies is long over due,” she said.
Ravel’s statement suggests that she would regulate right-leaning groups like America Rising that posts anti-Democrat YouTube videos on its website.
FEC Chairman Lee E. Goodman, a Republican, said if regulation extends that far, then anybody who writes a political blog, runs a politically active news site or even chat room could be regulated. He added that funny internet campaigns like “Obama Girl,” and “Jib Jab” would also face regulations.
“I told you this was coming,” he told Secrets. Earlier this year he warned that Democrats on the panel were gunning for conservative Internet sites like the Drudge Report.
“I cannot imagine a regulatory regime that would put government censors on the Internet daily, culling YouTube video posts for violations of law — nothing short of a Chinese censorship board,” Mr. Goodman said.
And he is right: This is internet censorship. Some of our favorite conservative video guys would be kicked off the net, or pay big fines: Bill Whittle, Z-Natiion, Dinesh D’Souza, FOR THE RECORD, Glenn Beck, Drudge, Wild Bill–all the conservative sites would be monitored.
And now: Cue the lights: We present to you…Monika: Abused by hate speech. Abused by Drudge. Abused, Abused, Abused…Why…she was IN LOVE!
Never mind that Clinton was an even bigger skank for using his power to get ‘blow jobs’ from an intern.
The Clinton’s are very clever: use Bill’s sin to attack conservatives. Blame HIS sins on them. Brilliant.
Instead, she got cushy jobs, and a ticket to Oxford (Do you REALLY think she could have gotten into Oxford without their help?) and now, she is back on the world stage, with voiced lessons, and a lot of speech coaching—- reminding everyone how nobody should ever talk hatred against a Clinton. That’s why she is on a mission…to control speech on the internet forever more.
(Okay, let’s go with skank.) NOTE: That’s right Monika, I still have the right to free speech.
The release of Monika talking about controlling the internet and political speech was to coincide to get the political speeches of conservatives ON the internet…shut down before 2016.
Obama used the IRS shut the tea party down, the Clintons will shut them down on the internet.
Frankly, I think Bill Clinton still has cigars with Monika, and if Hillary gets back into the White House, you can be sure, Monika and Bill will have access again to their favorite spot off the Oval Office.
Typically Liberal: Do the sin, and blame the other guy.
To them, it never gets old, and everybody in the media keeps falling for the same old song and dance.
Cosco, has kicked Dinses D’Souza’s book America off it’s shelves.
NEW YORK – The wholesale giant Costco has issued an order to remove all copies of Dinesh D’Souza’s bestselling book, “America: Imagine the World Without Her,” from the shelves of its stores nationwide,
And WHY would anyone ban a book, in the land of free speech?
Because it insults Obama and the president of Cosco, really likes him:
In total, Costco has given $100,000 to Obama and another $100,000 to Priorities USA, the pro-Obama super PAC.
Sinegal was the author of an email blast sent out by the Obama campaign in July 2012. Obama also held a fundraiser at Sinegal’s house in Seattle, during which the incumbent president said “the story of Costco and everything that you guys have done I think is representative of what America is all about.”
So, thank you Cosco—
Not only will I never grace any store of yours ever again in my life, you have just inspired me to not only go see the movie, but buy the book! I hadn’t thought about buying the book, since I have to BUDGET my household expenses, but you have just made up my mind.
Sam’s Club is just around the corner….
First: You could maybe see this happening in New York–but California, a state that wasn’t even in the Civil War, decided to ban the Confederate flag. The American flag is actually MORE offensive there…but one flag at a time I suppose.
SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) — California state government departments will be prohibited from selling or displaying items with an image of the Confederate flag under a bill that passed the Assembly on Monday.
AB2444 by Assemblyman Isadore Hall, D-Compton, is headed to the Senate after passing on a 72-1 vote. Hall introduced the bill after his mother saw replica Confederate money being sold at the state Capitol gift shop.
Well, if your mother is offended, that calls for a bill. Hey–campaign donations are considered free speech in this country, why not flags?
California didn’t leave it to just one flag, in an American high school in Morgan Hill, if you wave the American flag on Cinco de Mayo, you are a racist.
It happened Monday in California to a small group of protesters who waved U.S. flags in front of a school where officials had banned the practice to avoid violence threatened by Hispanic students celebrating Cinco de Mayo.
The controversy developed in 2010, when school officials ordered students not to wear U.S. flag-themed shirts on the Mexican holiday. The ban has been upheld by a federal appeals court.
The controversy brought a small group of protesters out Monday, and the community reacted immediately. “What’s wrong with these white people holding up American flags in Morgan hill??? Racist a–holes,” wrote Gia Lee in a feed monitored by Twitchy.
And the banning continued as we go to Florida:
Officials at Broward County Public Schools banned a fifth grader from reading the Bible during “free reading” time, according to lawyers from the Liberty Institute who are threatening to sue the school for violating the First Amendment.
Giovanni Rubeo is a fifth-grade student at the school, who had been given a Bible at church as a Christmas gift. It’s his favorite book, so he decided he’d like to read it during the time in class where students are allowed to read anything they choose.
So, what if you wanted to read Mein Kampf? Or the Koran? As we all know, the Bible is a dangerous book, and I suggest that student get the latest copy of “It takes a Village” or Playboy, Dreams of my Kenyan Father, or Bill Clinton’s “My Life.” (That’s a real thriller)
In North Carolina, students are being banned for mentioning “god” in their speeches at graduation:
A professor at a public university in North Carolina forbade his students from thanking God in personal statements that will be delivered during their departmental graduation ceremony on Friday.
In an email obtained by Campus Reform, Assistant Professor Eli Hvastkovs, who teaches chemistry at East Carolina University (ECU), instructed his students to prepare a “family friendly” 35 word personal statement that mentions future plans or “thanks someone.” The students, however, were explicitly forbidden from thanking God.
“You can’t thank God. I’m sorry about this – and I don’t want to have to outline the reasons why.” – Professor Eli Hvastkovs
No, he can’t give the reasons why, because he’s a communist. I wouldn’t admit that either. (Do you get the feeling the teachers are getting jealous of God?)
Actually, this last thing is good news: EVERYBODY knows you don’t tell kids that they can’t do something…it just makes them want to do it even more. By banning “god” the elites are going to drive millions of teenagers to him
Therefore, this “banning god” thing in school….might produce the opposite effect.
(Let’s not tell them.)
And last but not least, many liberals are trying to ban “praying” in the city council meetings in America. But ONE guy on the Supreme Court, Justice Kennedy, ruled in favor of our American history, and the first amendment..
So, who wins the Nobody’s Perfect Award for the Week?
The four Supreme Justices who voted against allowing prayer.
Sonia Sotomayer, Elena Kagan, Ruth Bader (I’ll just take a little nap) Ginsburg, and Stephen G. Breyer.
And frankly, for the Supreme Court to have to even give us permission to pray before a council meeting, shows you how far we have come….in losing our freedoms.
Whatever you may think of the last few weeks of “racial” remarks, they are protected by the 1st amendment. Americans…by our Constitution, have a right to say they hate one group or another. Or anybody for that matter.
(Was Spielberg trying to tell us something in Minority Report?)
Sterling, while an idiot AND a racist, had a recorded PRIVATE telephone call, probably as many suggest, a set-up by his girlfriend who didn’t get what she wanted.
We saw this with Mel Gibson. Shouldn’t there be a law against destroying careers with private telephone calls? Or is there one, and it’s just ignored?
Do they have a right to continue to work? Was Sterling NOT paying those black basketball players great salaries? Didn’t Mel Gibson give us some fantastic movies?
Well, Obama doesn’t have much time: In 2014, he might lose control of Congress, so the important news of today is he wants to monitor hate EVERYWHERE. It’s on the U.N. 21 Agenda list.
In other words, everyone must never say another word against anyone:
The Hate Crime Reporting Act of 2014 “would create an updated comprehensive report examining the role of the Internet and other telecommunications in encouraging hate crimes based on gender, race, religion, ethnicity, or sexual orientation and create recommendations to address such crimes,”
The one-page bill, reviewed by WND, calls for the Justice Department and the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights to “analyze information on the use of telecommunications, including the Internet, broadcast television and radio, cable television, public access television, commercial mobile services, and other electronic media, to advocate and encourage violent acts and the commission of crimes of hate.”
Who would decide these crimes?
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.”
From Nourishing Obscurity (thanks to amfortas for the info)
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?
This is refreshing…an American calling it like he sees it about Obama and his policies, and he is just trying to warn his neighbors against what’s coming: But, the city of course, wants him to take it down, because…it’s too big. Nobody Thinks it’s sort of the same thinking they have about gun control: you can have a gun, just so it only shoots so far.
You can have a sign, as long as it’s little enough that nobody sees it.
They slice away the 1st and 2nd amendments…slowly…like a piece of cheese.
If I lived by this farmer, I’d bake him a cake for his birthday…
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.
