|Updated: MSNBC Host: Your Kids Belong to the Collective - Tuesday, April 09, 2013|
April 6, 2013
In the video below, college professor and MSNBC host Melissa Harris-Perry says your children are not yours – they are owned by the community. She says public education has failed because we have not allowed the state to confiscate more of our money.
“We have to break through our private idea that kids belong to their parents or kids belong to their families,” says the professor of political science at Tulane University, where she is founding director of the Anna Julia Cooper Project on Gender, Race, and Politics in the South. Kids belong to whole communities, she insists, and once we realize this we’ll make “better investments” in government indoctrination of children.
Melissa Harris-Perry is regurgitating the Obama “you didn’t build that” meme. “If you’ve got a business, you didn’t build that,” Obama said during a campaign stop in Roanoke, Virginia. “Somebody else made that happen,” it was not the result of individual initiative. “The Internet didn’t get invented on its own. Government research created the Internet so that all the companies could make money off the Internet.”
“Like most people of his ideological bent, Obama either cannot or will not distinguish between society — which is created through peaceful commerce and other forms of private cooperation — and the state — an anti-social artifact built on conquest, coercion, and confiscation of wealth,” writes William Grigg. “Government produces nothing; it is an exercise in pure consumption and, usually, the destruction of capital. As Nietzsche famously said, everything the State has is stolen.”
Stephan Kinsella argues that the primary social evil today is a lack of respect for the fundamental right of self-ownership. Obama and Harris-Perry represent the other side of this argument. They believe, as do all Marxists and socialists, that the state, what Harris-Perry calls the “community,” owns the individual.
Harris-Perry urges us to “break through” the “private idea” that individuals own themselves. Like Marx, she believes the individual is a “communal being” and all human worth is intractably linked to the community, the collective, and the state is the ultimate manifestation of the collective will.
Harris-Perry’s homage to the state was part of a two-year long, multi-million dollar advertising campaign by MSNBC. The network, created through a merger between Microsoft and the death merchant General Electric, has long provided ideological fodder for president Obama, the proud Marxist (as Yuri Maltsev, former advisor to Mikhail Gorbachev, characterized him). “We can go backward, or we can keep moving forward,” he said during a speech at Carnegie Mellon University. “And I don’t know about you, but I want to move forward.”
It’s no mistake Obama’s handlers and MSNBC adopted the slogan. The word “forward” has a special meaning in socialist political terminology. It was frequently used as a name for socialist and communist newspapers and periodicals in the 20th century. “The slogan ‘Forward!’ reflected the conviction of European Marxists and radicals that their movements reflected the march of history, which would move forward past capitalism and into socialism and communism,” writes Victor Morton.
It seems incomprehensible that a multinational corporation like MSNBC would embrace communism. In fact, as Gary Allen noted, it is quite natural.
“If one understands that socialism is not a share-the-wealth program, but is in reality a method to consolidate and control the wealth, then the seeming paradox of superrich men promoting socialism becomes no paradox at all,” he wrote. “Instead it becomes the logical, even the perfect tool of power-seeking megalomaniacs. Communism, or more accurately, socialism, is not a movement of the downtrodden masses, but of the economic elite.”
Published on Apr 4, 2013
On March 23, my colleague Mark Finkelstein noted how MSNBC's Melissa Harris-Perry considers the unborn child a "thing" which takes a "lot of money" to "turn into a human," costing thousands of dollars to care for each year of his/her life. Now it appears that Harris-Perry thinks that, after they're born, children fundamentally belong to the state.
Narrating a new MSNBC "Lean Forward" spot, the Tulane professor laments that we in America "haven't had a very collective notion that these are our children." "[W]e have to break through our kind of private idea that kids belong to their parents or kids belong to their families, and recognize that kids belong to their communities," Harris-Perry argued.
"Once it's everybody's responsibility and not just the households, then we start making better investments." By "investments," of course, Harris-Perry means things like spending "as much in public education as we should have."
Of course, if as Harris-Perry holds,"[t]he cost to raise a child [is] $10,000 a year up to $20,000 a year," and if children should be viewed as collectively "owned" by "society," then taken to its logical extension, a woman's choices about having a child should be informed by the economic considerations of the "community," would it not? But of course, that logic would take someone to justify, for example, the "one-child" policy in Communist China.
What's more, the notion of collective responsibility for children was a philosophy that undergirded the Cultural Revolution in Communist China under Chairman Mao. I bring that up because, as you may recall, another Harris-Perry "Lean Forward" spot contains a reference to a "great leap forward," which calls to mind the disastrous agricultural reform plan which starved millions of Chinese to death in the 1950s.

The Sick and demended minds of those people who think only they matter...
You will note, They (so called Feminist) are nothing but fowl mouth trash, who spew hate on every level and don’t care about rights or anyone’s freedoms, let alone women with male children. They are only concerned about how they can trash over families and destroy them, indoctrinate women to shout there madness and deceitfulness, and to act as control freaks pushing their brand of legislation with these stupid political potato heads elected into office that suck up to them, in order to bring about a war between the genders to create that chaos. They are the true evil that is funded by globalists and government. And To be frank, it is a sickness and disease infesting society as we know today. They are nothing more then terrorists who should be dropped into a huge hole in the ground and be swallowed up to rot with there insanity.

Subject: RE: [Hatebase] Message
Regarding your Statement of Principles at http://www.hatebase.org/principles
Statement of Principles
- Hate is defined by intent, not by vocabulary. In other words, (a) innocuous vocabulary can be hateful, and (b) hateful language can be discussed clinically and without intent to shock, offend or harm.
- The problem of hate speech is not solved by censorship. This doesn't mean that individuals and governments shouldn't behave responsibly in volatile situations; after all, yelling "fire" in a crowded room isn't necessarily the best way to evacuate a building. But the perils of censorship and curtailed individual liberties rival those of hate speech.
- Hatebase is community-authored and -managed, and is therefore in the public domain. Because the vast majority of data here doesn't belong to Hatebase and isn't protected by copyright, anyone is free to do with it as they please. In fact, the ostensible purpose of Hatebase is to make data available via the Hatebase API to other individuals and organizations who can build tools around that data. If you do make use of Hatebase data, though, we ask that you honor our "have a penny, leave one; need a penny, take one" policy, and contribute in some fashion to the database.
1) The intent of usage of the word “Masculinist” by professor Pierrette Bouchard (Laval University) and the Government of Canada (Status of Women Canada) was (according to the BC Supreme Court) to advance an ideological position by Defaming anyone who expressed a contrary (non-feminist) viewpoint. The word is hateful because it implies that any male critic of feminism is necessarily spreading hatred of women, which the court recognized as a false opinion.
2) The perils of censorship are well-known, but often conveniently overlooked by people who wish to silence or obscure any speech that they personally disagree with- truth notwithstanding. Obviously, our government is a reflection of our democratic selves, and censorship is not limited to government censorship. Censorship can be, and clearly is, practiced even by private individuals, groups, political parties, ideologues and even website operators who might change definitions of words that cause discomfort. Some might even delete the accounts of people who provide legitimate (but differing) definitions that cause discomfort among people in positions of power.
3) Apparently, some in the public are free to contribute and some are not. Those who have their accounts deleted, or their definitions altered, are perhaps not quite as free as we might wish. Of course, that is a decision for the website operator to make, based on their individual preferences, level of commitment to the principles of liberty, sincerity and personal integrity. Censorship starts at home, as does the integrity to put principles ahead of personal prejudices.
As it happens, I know something about all of this, having been subjected to a lot of persecution due to my unwavering principled defense of freedom of speech. I do know how difficult it can be, and how high the personal cost is when people in positions of authority want someone silenced. Just ask the Rational Anarchist (http://www.rationalanarchist.ca) how things went when I refused to delete his account on the Libertarian Party of Canada internal party discussion website. Fifteen years in the wilderness, for both of us. Loss of jobs. Loss of friends. Slander and loss of reputation.
Are you sure that you are prepared for this, Tim? I ask because I don’t think you are. Can you walk the walk?
E-mail's on the word Regarding http://www.hatebase.org and the word “masculinist”.
Regarding http://www.hatebase.org and the word “masculinist”.
I posted factual information about a genuine new word, as defined by the person who coined it. I buttressed that definition with factual information about the official recognition of the definition by the Government of Canada, as evidenced by their acceptance and wide publication of the word in official government policy research.
I was neither bullying nor insulting, I simply do not understand why you would change the definition of the word when it is very clear that you have absolutely no familiarity with its meaning or common usage. Have you ever been called a “masculinist”? I have, and I know exactly how devastating that can be to anyone, and their entire family. I was called a “masculinist” by the federal government of Canada, listed as suchin published material, and had my life ruined by it. Others will suffer the same fate, and you do not seem to care.
In fact, this word is so effective as hatespeech that people who have been called “masculinist” are barred from many public places (like your website), silenced (like you just did), ejected from social places (as you also just did), and subjected to even more vilification (as you just did). Any complaint or explanation is quickly deemed “nonsense” and dismissed (as you just did).
Do you begin to understand the power of this word, and why it is used? Do you begin to see why I might know more about this than you?
I wonder if “niggers” and “kikes” and whatever could meet the high standard of objectivity you expect from me, a “masculinist”… or if they too might express a bit of anger over disgusting lies and slanderous slurs. Do you have an answer to that, or is this special treatment dished out to anyone who raises an issue that makes you uncomfortable? Perhaps it is necessary to make people uncomfortable, sometimes, so that start to think more clearly and see past the propaganda and brainwashing.
You changed to definition to one that was not what the author defined. And then you disable my account. Maybe it is you who are not terribly objective, and maybe it is you who is protecting (and hiding) a new word used to disparage, intimidate, and silence dissent. What a country we live in….
This is not “linguistics”. I have offered to provide all the documentary evidence that any reasonable person could ask. Apparently, it does not matter because I appear to you to be “an angry man”. Is that something like an “uppity nigger”…. Who maybe isn’t sufficiently differential towards his white betters?
Yes… that’s me. An “uppity nigger”, who needs more whipping, I guess. Enjoy.
PS… in the Government Policy Research Report where I was called a “masculinist”, the recommendations of the researchers included “the creation of organizations (like HateWatch”) and websites that would “monitor and expose” anyone critical of feminism, with an eye to silencing us and having us charged with hate-crimes or terrorism, and then jailed. Is http://www.hatebase.org that type of organization?

Yes, Ken, I am Timothy Quinn.
Hatebase is a forum for objective categorization of hate speech, not polemics about "government feminism" and other nonsense. Your bullying and insulting tone is a pretty clear red flag to me that this isn't a subject on which you can remain objective. I think the best thing is for us to go our separate ways. I've disabled your account and will be archiving the term "masculinist" for the attention of Hatebase's editorial board. I'm sorry this didn't work out, but am sure we'll each be happier not grappling over linguistic politics.

Why are you editing the definition of Masculinist, for no apparent good reason? Clearly you do not understand the word or its usage or its implications.
According to the man who coined the word and the Government of Canada that accepted and published this definition, it most certainly is NOT “One who professes male superiority”
I have copies of Martin Dufresne’s original definition, as cited and published by the Government of Canada in Status of Women Canada Government Policy research. I can provide you with copies of the documentation and government publications (pdf). I can also provide Supreme Court trial transcripts where all this is clearly admitted by government officials and University of Laval researchers.
“Depoliticizing” this word is nonsensical because it is a word that was created and is used purely for political gain, to slander and intimidate and silence anyone who expresses any disagreement with government feminism.
I hope this clears up any confusion.

|Diplomat: Real Target of Israeli Attack Was Syrian Base - Friday, February 01, 2013|
Strike on convoy heading to Lebanon was diversion
Paul Joseph Watson
February 1, 2013
A western diplomat has told the Iraqi daily Azzaman that the real target of Israel’s attack on Syria was a facility housing 3,000 Iranian Revolutionary Guards, and that reports about a weapons convoy on its way to Lebanon being hit were merely a diversion.
Shortly after news of the air strike emerged yesterday, reports centered around the target being a convoy of lorries carrying weapons into Lebanon. However, Syrian authorities disputed this narrative, claiming instead that a research facility northwest of Damascus had been destroyed.
It now appears the Syrian version of events has been vindicated after a western diplomat told the Iraqi daily Azzaman that eight guided missiles were used to hit a scientific research facility in Jamraya.
The facility was being guarded by 3,000 Iranian Revolutionary Guards as well as Russian experts, reports the Jerusalem Post, adding that the attack actually took place 48 hours before it was reported and that, “the report about a strike on a convoy to Lebanon was probably meant to divert attention away from the main objective of the operation.”
The research facility being the real target would also correlate with reports that the facility was on fire two days before news about the air strike was released.
The fact that the research facility was hit with zero resistance from Syrian air defense is extremely noteworthy given that the site is located just 12 kilometers away from the presidential palace in Damascus.
The Azzaman report adds that information about the facility was obtained as a result of intelligence gathered by Israeli agents inside Iran.
In the aftermath of the attack, which killed two people and injured five, Israeli military officials have indicated that more air strikes may be coming, much to the chagrin of Russia who compared bitterly about the attack and even flew a Mig-31 near Israel in an aggressive move.
In response, Syrian Ambassador Ali Abdul Karim Ali warned that Syria may take “a surprise decision to respond to the aggression of the Israeli warplanes.”
Iranian lawmaker Mohammad Hassan Asafari also remarked that Syria had a legal right to respond to the attack, while Syria complained to the United Nations after Russia characterized the Israeli strike as a “gross violation of the UN charter.”

Cable propaganda network deliberately edits out Sandy Hook family member asking gun rights advocates in audience a question
MSNBC's Martin Bashir claimed that supporters of gun rights attending a public hearing on Monday interrupted the testimony of Neil Heslin, the father of Jesse Lewis, who was murdered at Sandy Hook Elementary.
A selective edit of the 15 minute testimony deliberately portrayed the gun rights advocates as "hecklers," by showing some six seconds, including statements regarding 'the second amendment shall not be infringed.'
What MSNBC chose NOT to show its audience was the fact that Heslin, who favors a ban on assault weapons and high-capacity clips, asked the audience during his testimony, "I ask if there's anyone in this room who can give me one reason, or challenge this question: Why anybody in this room needs to have an — one of these assault-style weapons or military weapons or high capacity clips?"
The response from so-called "hecklers" came in an orderly fashion only AFTER Heslin followed up on silence to his own question, stating, "Not one person can answer that question."
The crowd was, in reality, only responding to the claim that no one could answer the question.
|MSNBC Edit Deliberately Smears Gun Owners as Sandy Hook ‘Hecklers’ - Wednesday, January 30, 2013|
Cable propaganda network deliberately edits out Sandy Hook family member asking gun rights advocates in audience a question
January 30, 2013
The agenda-driven cable media outlets have stooped to a new low once again in effort to (openly) support those pushing a gun control agenda.
MSNBC’s Martin Bashir claimed that supporters of gun rights attending a public hearing on Monday interrupted the testimony of Neil Heslin, the father of Jesse Lewis, who was murdered at Sandy Hook Elementary.
A selective edit of the 15 minute testimony deliberately portrayed the gun rights advocates as “hecklers,” by showing some six seconds, including statements regarding ‘the second amendment shall not be infringed.’
What MSNBC chose NOT to show its audience was the fact that Heslin, who favors a ban on assault weapons and high-capacity clips, asked the audience during his testimony, “I ask if there’s anyone in this room who can give me one reason, or challenge this question: Why anybody in this room needs to have an — one of these assault-style weapons or military weapons or high capacity clips?”
The response from so-called “hecklers” came in an orderly fashion only AFTER Heslin followed up on silence to his own question, stating, “Not one person can answer that question.”
The crowd was, in reality, only responding to the claim that no one could answer the question.
See the comparison of the actual testimony with the MSNBC edit below:
Other blogs and fellow MSNBC hosts, including Lawrence O’Donnell, also advanced the “heckling” hoax despite the clear response to a direct question, as shown in the full video.
President of the watchdog group Media Research Center, Brent Bozell, expressed his anger at the deliberate deception to misconstrue the events and demonize gun owners:
“There is now a clear pattern of deception at NBC News. It is the most egregious violation of journalistic ethics. First they edited the Trayvon Martin 911 call to fabricate a racist motive. Then Andrea Mitchell tried to invent a fake ‘supermarket scanner moment’ for Mitt Romney. Now MSNBC is deceptively editing footage of Sandy Hook testimony in order to smear gun rights advocates.”
“This is not how a legitimate, professional news organization operates. MSNBC’s relentless anti-gun advocacy is bad enough, but this is downright dishonest. Time and time again NBC News has demonstrated why the American people can’t trust a single thing they say.”
Neil Heslin, like other family members of the victims, has already suffered enough at the hands of a madman, yet the media, armed with a clear agenda, are shamefully trying to portray him as the victim of another group altogether– defenders of the 2nd Amendment.

|Hacked Emails Reveal ‘Washington-Approved’ Plan to Stage Chemical Weapons Attack in Syria - Monday, January 28, 2013|
Obama administration complicit in war crime?
Paul Joseph Watson
January 28, 2013
Alleged hacked emails from defense contractor Britam reveal a plan “approved by Washington” and funded by Qatar to stage a chemical weapons attack in Syria and blame it on the Assad regime, fulfilling what the Obama administration has made clear is a “red line” that would mandate US military intervention.
The leaked emails, obtained by a hacker in Malaysia, feature an exchange (click here for screenshot) between Britam Defence’s Business Development Director David Goulding and the company’s founder Philip Doughty;
We’ve got a new offer. It’s about Syria again. Qataris propose an attractive deal and swear that the idea is approved by Washington.
We’ll have to deliver a CW to Homs, a Soviet origin g-shell from Libya similar to those that Assad should have. They want us to deploy our Ukrainian personnel that should speak Russian and make a video record.
Frankly, I don’t think it’s a good idea but the sums proposed are enormous. Your opinion?
The fact that the plan involves delivering a CW (chemical weapon) that is “similar to those Assad should have,” clearly suggests that the idea is to stage a false flag chemical weapons attack that could be blamed on Assad by Gulf states like Qatar and NATO powers.
If the claim that such as plot was “approved by Washington” can be verified, then the Obama administration is complicit in a war crime.
According to Cyber War News, which details the process of how the emails were hacked and includes screenshots of the leaked documents, the hack also uncovered, “extremely personal information,” including copies of passports of Britam employees, some of whom appeared to be mercenaries.
A full list of all the hacked documents can be found here.
Online business profiles confirm that both David Goulding and Philip Doughty work for Britam Defence.
Last year, reports began to circulate that that US-backed rebel fighters in Syria had been given gas masks and were willing to stage a chemical weapons attack which would then be blamed on the Assad regime to grease the skids for NATO military intervention.
Soon after in August, President Barack Obama warned that the use or even transportation of chemical weapons by the Assad regime would represent a “red line” that would precipitate military intervention. French President Francois Hollande followed suit, stating that the use of such weapons “Would be a legitimate reason for direct intervention.”
At around the same time, a source told Syrian news channel Addounia that a Saudi company had fitted 1400 ambulance vehicles with anti-gas & anti-chemical filtering systems at a cost of $97,000 dollars each, in preparation for a chemical weapons attack carried out by FSA rebels using mortar rounds. A further 400 vehicles were prepared as troop carriers.
The attack would be blamed on the Syrian Army and exploited as an excuse for a military assault. A March 2012 Brookings Institution report entitled Saving Syria: Assessing Options For Regime Change outlined this very scenario – where a manufactured humanitarian crisis would be cited as justification for an attack.
Yesterday, Israel’s vice premier Silvan Shalom told reporters that if Syrian rebels obtained chemical weapons from stockpiles belonging to the Assad regime, such a development would force Israel to resort to “preventive operations,” in other words – a military strike on Syria.
In December, a shocking video emerged of Syrian rebels testing what appeared to be a form of nerve gas on rabbits, bolstering claims that the rebels had already obtained chemical weapons.
As Tony Cartalucci also highlights, “Mention of acquiring chemical weapons from Libya is particularly troubling. Libya’s arsenal had fallen into the hands of sectarian extremists with NATO assistance in 2011 in the culmination of efforts to overthrow the North African nation . Since then, Libya’s militants led by commanders of Al Qaeda’s Libyan Islamic Fighting Group (LIFG) have armed sectarian extremists across the Arab World, from as far West as Mali, to as far East as Syria.”
Last month, 29 different US-backed Syrian opposition groups pledged their allegiance to Al Nusra, an Al-Qaeda-affiliated group which, as the New York Times reported, “killed numerous American troops in Iraq.
Numerous reports confirm that Al Nusra is the leading front line fighting force in Syria and is commanding other rebel groups. Given their prominent role, allied with the fact that the terror group has been responsible for numerous bloody attacks in Syria, the notion that the Obama administration would approve a plot that could see chemical weapons fall into the hands of Al-Qaeda terrorists could represent a foreign policy scandal even bigger than Benghazi-Gate.
In a related story, the Syrian Electronic Army, a separate hacktivist group, continues to release hacked files and emails from numerous sensitive foreign ministry and military websites belonging to Saudi Arabia, Qatar and Turkey, including emails sent between these countries.

|Two Days Before Aaron Swartz Arrested, Secret Service Took Over the Investigation - Monday, January 14, 2013|
Jan 14, 2013
The public story of Aaron Swartz’ now-tragic two year fight with the Federal government usually starts with his July 19, 2011 arrest.
But that’s not when he was first arrested for accessing a closet at MIT in which he had a netbook downloading huge quantities of scholarly journals. He was first arrested on January 6, 2011 by MIT and Cambrige, MA cops.
According to a suppression motion in his case, however, two days before Aaron was arrested, the Secret Service took over the investigation.
On the morning of January 4, 2011, at approximately 8:00 am, MIT personnel located the netbook being used for the downloads and decided to leave it in place and institute a packet capture of the network traffic to and from the netbook.4 Timeline at 6. This was accomplished using the laptop of Dave Newman, MIT Senior Network Engineer, which was connected to the netbook and intercepted the communications coming to and from it. Id. Later that day, beginning at 11:00 am, the Secret Service assumed control of the investigation. [my emphasis]
In fact, in one of the most recent developments in discovery in Aaron’s case, the government belatedly turned over an email showing Secret Service agent Michael Pickett offering to take possession of the hardware seized from Aaron “anytime after it has been processed for prints or whenever you [Assistant US Attorney Stephen Heymann] feel it is appropriate.” Another newly disclosed document shows the Pickett accompanied the local cops as they moved the hardware they had seized from Aaron around.
According to the Secret Service, they get involved in investigations with:
- Significant economic or community impact
- Participation of organized criminal groups involving multiple districts or transnational organizations
- Use of schemes involving new technology
Downloading scholarly articles is none of those things.
A lot of people are justifiably furious with US Attorney Carmen Ortiz and AUSA Heymann’s conduct on this case.
But the involvement of the Secret Service just as it evolved from a local breaking and entry case into the excessive charges ultimately charged makes it clear that this was a nationally directed effort to take down Swartz.
MIT’s President Rafael Reif has expressed sadness about Aaron’s death and promised an investigation into the university’s treatment of Aaron. I want to know whether MIT–which is dependent on federal grants for much of its funding–brought in the Secret Service.
Visionary internet activist Aaron Swartz found dead; was this brilliant internet revolutionary ‘taken out?’
Jan 14, 2013
Adding to the list of mysterious deaths that have happened over the last few days, internet visionary and brilliant internet activist Aaron Swartz was found dead yesterday. Swartz, only 26 years old, was the co-founder of Reddit.com, the co-creator of RSS technology, and the key activist who achieved a stunning defeat of the freedom-crushing SOPA / PIPA bills in the U.S. Congress.
Swartz was found dead yesterday, and the official story is that he committed suicide. But Swartz himself would have wanted us to question the official story and dig deeper.
After all, his own website, Demand Progress, questions the “PROTECT-IP” act, the insanity of George Bush’s Patriot Act, the censorship of free speech by Facebook, the financial scams of Goldman Sachs, the internet kill switch and much more.
He even questioned the TSA’s naked body scanners, just like I have here at Natural News.
In fact, when I look at Aaron Swartz, I see him as the next generation of American activists who we all desperately need: energized, intelligent, freedom-loving critical thinkers who spread truth and beat back tyranny and oppression at every opportunity. It’s quite clear that had Swartz not been assassinated (er, I mean “suicided”), he would have gone on to be a game changer for freedom in our world.
Swartz was targeted by the system
Click here to watch this important video in which Swartz describes the decentralization of information on a free internet. Swartz fully understood the power of setting information free, and this is exactly the opposite of what the corporate-government-industrial-complex wants, which is the monopolization and centralization of power.
Click here to watch another important video in which Swartz describes how he and his friends defeated SOPA. In this video, he openly describes the government’s proposed copyright legislation as a “tyranny.”
Like all truth-tellers, Swartz was branded an enemy by the system. For the act of downloading thousands of academic articles from MIT (yes, academic papers), he was hounded by the FBI, arrested and charged with crimes that could have earned him up to 50 years in prison.
From the charges that were leveled against him for the relatively mild offense of downloading academic papers, it’s very clear that somebody powerful was out to destroy him.
Apparently they did just that.
Who benefits from the death of Aaron Swartz?
Who benefits? Hollywood and all its tyrannical copyright-pushing maniacs who want to criminalize anyone who downloads a movie off the internet.
The MPAA, in other words. That’s the Motion Picture Association of America. Former U.S. Senator Christopher Dodd is the key lobbyist representing the MPAA. He’s now the chairperson and CEO of the MPAA, which has a long history of operating much like a mafia organization in its use of threats and mafia-style intimidation tactics.
In fact, if the MPAA joined with the RIAA (recording industry association), it would create the MAFIAA, jokes one website. See also www.MafiaaFire.com
Would this mafia pay good money to have Aaron Swartz killed? (Are you kidding me? Do I even have to answer this question?)
Mysterious deaths of people who question government now becoming more frequent
The official explanation is that Swartz “hanged himself” with a rope in his own apartment. I’m certain that sooner or later additional information will come out about how he also knocked out his own teeth and beat himself badly before hanging himself, because that’s the way these “suicides” of activists usually turn out.
Swartz’s death is just one of many mysterious deaths that have recently taken place. Just a few days ago, a celebrated rifle manufacturer named John Noveske was killed in a mysterious car crash — not long after posting details of all the school shooters who were taking psychiatric drugs.
Another prominent internet technology pioneer committed “suicide” just over a year ago. Ilya Zhitomirskiy co-created Diaspora, the so-called ‘Facebook-killer’ technology that created a free, decentralized technology system that posed a severe threat to the data-mining monopoly of Facebook.
It has also been reported and confirmed that radio host Alex Jones was stalked by gun-toting goons while in New York to appear on CNN. They tried to force him into some sort of altercation, but he escaped by hailing a cab and fleeing the area.
The next day, CNN guests announced live on the air that Piers Morgan should shoot Alex Jones with an AR-15, and they even threatened Alex’s children with a thinly-veiled comment about “I hope his children don’t die.”
Furthermore, another person I know who is a powerful activist for truth and freedom was very nearly killed yesterday in what looks like a planned automobile accident. He doesn’t yet wish to release his name or any further details, but from what he described to me, he was just “inches” away from being turned into roadkill.
As these mysterious deaths start to add up, intelligent people are asking questions: Is this part of a deliberate assassination campaign to take out top activists who question the government?
It’s not an unreasonable question given our current political climate and the existence of Obama’s secret kill list. Even Ron Paul has openly asked the question of who is on Obama’s kill list.
I am NOT suicidal, depressed or on any drugs or medications
For the record, no one has attempted to kill me in at least the last 18 months. I am not aware of any threats against me, and I haven’t noticed anyone following me or stalking me.
But just for the record, in case something happens to me, I am NOT suicidal or depressed or unhappy with life. I’m thrilled to be alive, thrilled to keep moving humanity forward, and thrilled to be part of what can only be called a mass awakening of spiritual freedom in our world.
I’m not taking any medications whatsoever (and haven’t for decades), I do not drink alcohol, I do not use ANY recreational drugs whatsoever, I don’t visit prostitutes and I’m not in any way a violent person. In fact, I can’t even stand the thought of shooting animals (which is why I don’t hunt). I actually avoid stepping on ants!
I don’t drive at fast speeds on the highway, I don’t engage in dangerous hobbies like skydiving, and I’m actually very safety-minded about everything I do.
While I take precautions to protect myself from bad people, I’m obviously not going to detail those on the internet. All I can say is that if someone comes to kill me, they’d better be ready to take some casualties in the process.
I very much doubt people like Aaron Swartz knew much about self defense. He probably didn’t even own a gun. But this is a lesson all activists need to take to heart right now: Get armed. Go get trained in basic self defense. Start moving through your environments (cities, streets, parking lots, apartment buildings, etc.) with more of a “tactical” mindset.
Be aware of your surroundings. Stop using credit cards as they instantly reveal your physical location. Turn off your cell phones and remove their batteries whenever possible.
If you don’t learn to live a lot like a fugitive, you too might soon be “suicided” as part of what appears to be a national purge of the very best humanity has to offer.
|Reddit Co-Founder Killed Himself Due to Government Censorship and Harassment - Monday, January 14, 2013|Reddit Co-Founder Killed Himself Due to Government Censorship and Harassment … In His Honor, Can Reddit Stop Censoring?
Jan 14, 2013
Reddit co-founder and free speech activist Aaron Scwartz killed himself due to government censorship and harassment. (He was probably clinically depressed and apparently committed suicide; no one is alleging that he was murdered.)
Aaron developed RSS, created the architecture for the Creative Commons licensing system, helped lead the charge against SOPA and other Internet censorship attempts, and fought passionately for free speech and the use of the Web as a force for good.
In his honor, can Reddit stop censoring? As we noted last month:
Reddit [is] censoring.
I’m not talking about censoring specific websites (For example, I was informed today that Reddit’s News category censors all stories from this website. But that’s just an example). I’m talking about censoring entire categories of news media.
Specifically, Reddit’s WorldNews category has 2.5 million subscribers. Most tv news shows have less than 2.5 million daily viewers. So that means that Reddit’s WorldNews isitself a mainstream media source in terms of numbers. And many more people see WorldNews stories on the front page of Reddit, even if they are not subscribers to the WorldNews subreddit.
(Reddit is owned by the 46th largest company in the United States – Advance Publications – which owns a number of mainstream newspapers and magazines.)
Yet WorldNews censors blogs, and doesn’t consider them real news sources. Here’s a discussion I had recently with WorldNews moderators:
In fact, the top independent experts in every field – economics, business, foreign affairs, military, science, energy, etc. – have their own blogs, making blogs one of the best sources of information, a good way to fact-check the mainstream news, and the best way to read the experts’ insights direct and unfiltered. See this, this and this.
Indeed, the whole reason that news blogs have become popular is that they get around the censorship which is ubiquitous in the mainstream television news. And social media is popular as a news source – especially among youth – because it pretends that it provides uncensored news, where a free market of popularity governs.
That’s obviously not the case, where specific websites – and entire classes of media, such as blogs – are barred.
Reddit holds itself out as a young, hip, progressive news source. But if it is censoring blogs, it fails to live up to any of these claims.
The government already censors and manipulates social media. More proof here andhere.
It is sad that the moderators of the social media sites themselves are doing the same thing.
In honor of Aaron, can Reddit start honoring the right to free speech … and stop censoring?
Update … This post was censored by the politics subreddit almost immediately after posting:
|DHS Buys 200,000 More Rounds of Ammunition - Friday, January 04, 2013|
Federal government continues to arm itself to the teeth while Obama administration pushes gun control
Paul Joseph Watson
January 4, 2013
While the Obama administration sets out to eviscerate the gun rights of American citizens in the aftermath of Sandy Hook, earlier this week it was announced that the Department of Homeland Security has awarded a company a contract worth over $45,000 dollars to provide the DHS with 200,000 more rounds of bullets.
This new purchase adds to the staggering figure of 1.6 billion rounds of ammunition already secured by the DHS over the last 9 months alone.
A solicitation originally posted on the FedBizOpps.gov website on December 17 on behalf of the DHS Federal Law Enforcement Training Center advertised the need for 200 cases of 13–40 Cal, 180 Grain, Jacketed Hollow Point bullets, with each case containing 1000 rounds, to be delivered almost immediately as soon as the contract is awarded.
The bullets are to be delivered to a training site in North Charleston, South Carolina, which “specializes in Maritime Law Enforcement and Port Security Training. Basic and advanced training programs are conducted in concert with the U.S. Coast Guard Maritime Law Enforcement Academy, the U.S. Courts Probation and Pretrial Services Training Academy, the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement Training Academy, the Customs and Border Protection Field Operations Academy, and the Naval Criminal Investigative Service.”
The winner of the contract to provide the DHS with the ammunition, announced on January 2, was Evian Group Inc., an organization that was formed just five days before the announcement of the solicitation.
As James Smith documents, Evian Group seems to be little more than a front organization and doesn’t appear to have any real business assets, a genuine physical address, a website, or even a phone number.
Back in August, the Department of Homeland Security censored information relating to the amount of bullets purchased by the DHS on behalf of Immigration & Customs Enforcement, citing an “unusual and compelling urgency” to acquire the bullets, noting that there is a shortage of bullets which is threatening a situation that could cause “substantial safety issues for the government” should law enforcement officials not be adequately armed.
The information was blacked out despite the fact that documents are only supposed to be redacted if authorized by Congress or for national security reasons.
The contradiction of the Obama administration preaching gun control while simultaneously the federal government arms itself to the teeth with an arsenal that would be enough to wage a full scale 7 year ground war is jaw-dropping.
As Mike Adams highlights, “A citizen is considered to be a stockpiling “terrorist” prepper if they own just 1,000 rounds of ammo. The government, however, can purchase billions and the mainstream media doesn’t even question it.”
“Where is all this ammunition going? It’s being stockpiled by the federal government, awaiting some future event during which it will apparently be “activated.” Why else would you stockpile something if you don’t anticipate needing to use it someday?”
“During all this, Obama and his cohorts in Washington are loudly insisting that American citizens have no right to purchase firearms or ammunition, and that new laws will soon be enacted to make sure you cannot do what the government does: stockpile weapons and ammo.”
Indeed, the double standard is staggering and while Americans are being raided for stockpiling “arsenals” of weapons that subsequently turn out to be no more than a few guns, the federal government is simultaneously building a very real and substantial arsenal while the mainstream media turns a blind eye
|RFID Tracking Chips At The Vatican: Fulfilling The Prophecy Of The Popes? - Friday, December 21, 2012|
December 21, 2012
The announcement that thousands of Vatican clergy and employees will be issued an identification card with an RFID tracking device comes as no surprise following the Vatileaks scandal. Even the Pope needs to be concerned about confidentiality and security. However, His Holiness seems to be following the Prophecy of the Popes and bringing us one step closer to Armageddon.
Sound far fetched? The fact that the last 111 popes were all named in a 900-year-old prophecy is thought provoking enough. But the idea that Pope Benedict XVI may be the Last Pope before the Apocalypse, he’s issuing tracking devices to the masses, and he’s one of the most politically influential men in the world should make you sit up and take notice. Because according to the Prophecy of the Popes, the next pope will be the last, and he’ll usher in the Antichrist.
Nine hundred years ago, Pope Innocent II summoned Saint Malachy to Rome for an annual accounting of his Northern Ireland Parish. On his return trip, Malachy had a vision in which God revealed to him the identities of the next 112 popes.
While the names Malachy saw in his vision were cryptic, theologians have found them to be extremely accurate. For example, in the vision, Pope number 108 was described as “Flower of Flowers.” Pope Paul VI (1963-1978) had a coat of arms that depicted three fleurs-de-lis. Pope number 109 was “Of the Half Moon” and Pope John Paul I was elected on August 26, 1978 – a day which saw a half-moon.
Even more interesting, Pope number 110, described as “The Labor of the Son,” was John Paul II (1978-2005). John Paul was born on the day of a solar eclipse and died on the day of a solar eclipse.
Finally, the 112th Prophecy stated that “Peter The Roman” would be the final pope before the Apocalypse:
“In the final persecution of the Holy Roman Church there will reign Petrus Romanus, who will feed his flock amid many tribulations; after which the seven-hilled city will be destroyed and the dreadful Judge will judge the people. The End.”
But it’s the current pope, Pope number 111, who’s most important. Pope Benedict XVI, comes from the Order of Saint Benedict, also known as the Olivetans. The 111th Pope Prophecy identified “The Glory of the Olive” and stated that this pope would reign during the beginning of the Tribulation.
Official identification tags or cards are nothing new. Large corporations, hospitals, schools and businesses have been using them for decades, along with federal, state and local government agencies and anyone else who wants to control access to buildings and/or information. But these cards don’t track your movements, they’re simply used to for identification purposes.
It might seem obvious – If you want to prevent another Vatileaks-like occurrence you limit access to critical information, and to do so, you give everyone an identification card. In this technologically advanced age it even seems appropriate to add a little magnetic strip to the back of the card that allows you to open doors or files or send the elevator to the penthouse floor.
But why is it necessary to include an RFID chip to track movement? If you can already limit access is it really necessary to know what your employee is doing when he’s not trying to access information?
It might not be necessary now, but if the Prophecy is correct, and so far it has been, then the Tribulation is set to begin during the current pope’s reign, and along with the Tribulation comes “The Mark of the Beast.”
“Also it causes all, both small and great, both rich and poor, both free and slave, to be marked on the right hand or the forehead, so that no one can buy or sell unless he has the mark, that is, the name of the beast or the number of its name.”
What difference does all this make? Who cares if Vatican clergy and employees have to wear a tracking device? After all, we’re talking about the Vatican. It’s all the way over there in Rome.
Whether you believe in the Prophecies or not, whether you’re Catholic or not, it’s important to understand that Pope Benedict XVI, or any pope for that matter, indirectly carries great political clout. If he’s anti-abortion then his followers support political leaders who are also anti-abortion. If he’s against same-sex marriage then his followers support political leaders who are also against same-sex marriage. The same holds true for birth control, gun control, civil rights, etc.
So it only makes sense that if the pope says everybody needs to wear a tracking device his followers will all feel comfortable wearing tracking devices and they’ll have no problem supporting political leaders who want to ring in the New World Order.
But RFID tags have a deeper relevancy for every parent in America. Schools across the nation are already using RFID technology to track your child’s every movement. If it’s not being used at your school yet, just hang on, it’s on the way. Many schools are already giving Kindergarten students a tracking number they’ll have to use to purchase lunch and school supplies throughout their 12 years in the school system.
This RFID tracking system monitors every movement your child makes, including activities conducted off school grounds and during non-school hours.
On October 12 Mr. Hernandez and his daughter who attends school in the Northside Independent School District in San Antonio, Texas, protested the use of RFID tracking technology on the grounds that it violated her right to privacy and her religious beliefs.
But, now that the Vatican has given its blessing, how much longer will that protest hold up? If the highest religious authority in the world says RFID tracking technology is a “Good Thing” and a perfectly acceptable method for controlling the sheeple, then it seems we’ve reached the beginning of The Tribulation.
The Prophecy of the Popes states that Pope Benedict XVI will reign during the beginning of the Tribulation. It also states that the pope who comes after Benedict will be the pope who ushers in Armageddon, the destruction of the Catholic Church, and pave the way for the Antichrist.
Pope Benedict XVI is 85-years old and in poor health. While he may reign for another five or ten years, it’s safe to assume that the next pope – the Final Pope – is already an influential member of the Church hierarchy and may even have had a hand in the implementation of the tracking system.
The Prophecies don’t say that Pope Benedict XVI will cause the Tribulation, only that he’ll be on the Throne of Peter at the time the Tribulation begins. The fact that thousands of people in Vatican City will now begin wearing “The Mark of the Beast” in January 2013 – while Benedict is still on the Throne – suggests The New World Order is close at hand. And no matter what your religious beliefs, that’s a pretty scary thought.

|Gray State Film: The Systematic Abolishment of Liberties to Bring in a Nwo - Tuesday, December 04, 2012|
Sept 8, 2012
Alex talks with David Crowley and Danny Mason, the producer and an actor in Gray State, a film about American behind the wall of a tyrannical police state.
The world reels with the turmoil of war, geological disaster, and economic collapse, while Americans continue to submerge themselves in illusions of safety and immunity. While rights are sold for security, the federal government, swollen with power, begins a systematic takeover of liberty in order to bring about a New World Order.
Americans, quarantined to militarized districts, become a population ripe for tyrannical control.
Fearmongering, terrorism, police state, martial law, war, arrest, internment, hunger, oppression, violence, resistance — these are the new terms by which Americans define their existence. Neighbor is turned against neighbor as the value of the dollar plunges to zero, food supplies are depleted, and everyone is a terror suspect. There are arrests. Disappearances. Bio attacks. Public executions of those even suspected of dissent. Even rumors of concentration camps on American soil.
This is the backdrop to an unfolding story of resistance. American militias prepare for guerilla warfare. There are mass defections from the military as true Patriots attempt to rally around the Constitution and defend liberty, preparing a national insurgency against federal forces, knowing full well this will be the last time in history the oppressed will be capable of organized resistance.
It is a time of transition, of shifting alliance, of mass awakening and mass execution. It is an impending storm, an iron-gray morning that puts into effect decades of over-comfort and complacency, and Americans wake up to an occupied homeland. It is a time of lists — black list, white list, and those still caught in the middle, those who risk physical death for their free will and those who sell their souls to maintain their idle thoughts and easy comforts. It is in this Gray State that the perpetuation of human freedom will be contested, or crushed.
Is it the near future, or is it the present? The Gray State is coming – by consent or conquest. This is battlefield USA.

|Statist Thugs And The Rocks They Crawl Out From Under - Wednesday, November 21, 2012|
November 21, 2012
A mass exodus from ignorance and organized opposition to tyranny is the dream of every freedom loving person within the Liberty Movement today. We would like nothing better than to put an end to the expanding establishment police state in the most peaceful manner possible. We dream of a day when a transition back to the Constitutional values that once made America brilliantly unique in the world is possible, and can be accomplished without incredible pain or terrible bloodshed. We long for that once-in-a-century uprising, that great march, that spontaneous eruption of the citizenry demanding a more truthful government. At the same time, though, we realize that such events are rare, and few if any great changes in the history of man are made without sacrifice, and without direct confrontation.
The reason why peaceful and popular activism almost never occurs successfully, the reason why good people are made to stand and suffer, falls not only to the establishment elites who seek out and abuse power; there are others who share in the blame. Regardless of the age, the culture, or the social conditions, there is ALWAYS a percentage of the general populace that embraces the totalitarian dynamic. There is always someone in our neighborhood, in our workplace, and within our family that finds vindication or advantage in supporting the state, even if the state has turned viciously criminal. They are not only useful idiots; they are conscious participants in the process of pacification and enslavement of their own society. They understand their role perfectly, and they enjoy what they do.
The psychologist Carl Jung in his examination of the rise of violent fascism in Germany as well as the collectivist surveillance state in communist Russia theorized that there is in fact a certain percentage of people in any given epoch that carry within them a latent ability to abandon conscience. That is to say, there is always hidden within a portion of the multitude an inborn potential for sociopathic and psychopathic tendencies. These tendencies remain dormant for many under most circumstances, but every once in a while a society falters to the point where such diseases of the soul are encouraged, and the monsters in millions are allowed to come out and play.
Is it possible that some men are more apt towards truth and freedom while others take more naturally to dominance and deceit? Perhaps. I find that under certain circumstances even the best human beings can make catastrophic errors in judgment. However, there is a difference between those who misstep in life, and those who savor destruction. For these people I reserve the label of the “statist thug”; a ghoul in common man’s drag just waiting for the opportunity to scrape out a spoonful of petty authority and assert his will over others. These folks are the day’s damned. And what’s worse; though they may have been born with a predisposition towards despotism, they still had a choice, and they chose villainy. They deserve no special treatment and no quarter from us.
As America faces down wave after wave of fiscal difficulties, a government gone rogue with false left/right politics, and policies that disregard civil liberties for the sake of centralized authority, I believe the statist thugs of our time will soon flow out of the dark recesses and rotten sputtering gutters of our society like a river of septic putrescence. We all know them when we see them, but do we really understand what makes them tick? Here are some common psychological attributes of the overzealous statist; the failings and inadequacies that make him what he is…
Statist Thugs Thrive During Immoral Times
The worst statists are utter screw-ups and failures in normal or semi-normal environments. They barely have the ability to function without constant surrounding chaos and desperation which they use to camouflage their spastic and childish characters. They are often seen as the dregs of a culture during peaceful years, and only climb to prominence when crisis overtakes the nation. When a social environment turns tenuous or explosive, the statist excels. Corrupt governments require the aid of questionable individuals in order to tighten control at the local level, and so anyone willing to set aside morality and principle automatically becomes a highly valued commodity. Statists will flock to government employment during national “emergencies” or unjust wars, and use the inbred system to their advantage.
Statist Thugs Want Respect, Even If They Don’t Deserve It
Statists demand respect, and they will pursue authoritative positions just so they can remind people of the respect they are supposedly owed. Some of them do realize that legitimate respect is earned through valuable works, knowledge, experience, and generous creativity. They know it cannot be bought, and that it cannot be conned through clever talk, boastful discussion, and theatrical chest beating. And so, instead of attempting real achievement, or taking the risk of falsely playing a part and being exposed, they look for a title and a uniform to fill the void. They eventually attain respect derived by force through institutions within the system. This title will likely be a miniscule part of the overall government conglomerate, but the statist will act as if he is the emperor of Earth once you wander into his narrow jurisdiction. The slightest hint of defiance will send him into fits of rage.
Statist Thugs Only Understand Violence
Keep in mind that not every person in a uniform is a statist, and identifying them is more a matter of behavior than outward appearance. There is no such thing as reason, logic, or even law in the realm of the statist thug. You cannot discuss a matter of conflict with him. You cannot point out that the legal structure he claims to represent does not support his views. You cannot calm him using words and solid philosophy. The only thing he understands is power, and the only thing that he regards is strength. When faced with overwhelming reason, the statist will attack rather than think. This attack, unfortunately, will only be silenced by an equal or greater display of force…
Statist Thugs Savor Weakness In Others
Show any signs of fear or weakness and you have given the statist exactly what he has always wanted. He does not desire an equal fight. In truth, he avoids situations in which his opponents are fairly matched. This is because, deep down, all statists and power monger are cowards. Anyone who is so desperate to control every aspect of his environment even to the point of hurting and enslaving others is obviously afraid of a great many things. Attempting to be quietly diplomatic or grasping for mercy only encourages them to take their maliciousness to the next level. Statists seek easy prey to satiate their thirst for dominance. They will abuse women, children, the elderly and disabled, anyone that cannot defend themselves. As soon as the goon encounters a person willing and able to fight back, however, his smug façade disappears and the hidden coward emerges.
Statist Thugs Love Law For The Law’s Sake
Statists revel in bureaucracy and red tape. They love laws and regulations regardless of application. They feel safe within a highly structured and contained system because most of them are followers, not leaders. The idea that they may one day have to blaze their own path without the aid of a vast government machine cradling them like lost infants is terrifying to them. Statists are not able to survive without someone telling them what to do and when to do it. On the other side of the coin, they also enjoy the manner in which the modern legal framework can be twisted to fit whatever disturbed logic happens to strike them. The more a society is cluttered with overt legalities, the easier it is to misinterpret and exploit the distraction and confusion they create.
Statists Believe Government Should Parent Society
The goal of a statist is to impress his will upon others by any means necessary. Government simply offers the most expedient and convenient tool for them to do the job. Of course, in their minds many of them will try to rationalize the abuse of government power by asserting that it is ultimately for the good of everyone. It is not enough for them to live life the way they see fit for themselves; all people must be “shown the light” for the betterment of the group as a whole. When confronted with someone who dissents against their oppressive world view, they usually respond by accusing the activist of “not caring about other people’s well being, or the well being of the country”. You will almost always hear the Statist talk about the group, or the collective, over the individual, because the easiest way to dominate the citizenry is to erase the concept of unique individualism and condition them towards herd behavior. Individuals with strong characters infuriate statists.
Anyone Can Be A Statist
Many people (myself included) have never found much solace in the establishment and its parade of self-importance. For me, most methodologies of government have always been a sick kind of joke. Elaborate buildings and ceremonies, nice suits and uniforms, the money and the celebrity, the news shows and talking heads; it’s all costume. It’s a parade of drunken clowns and carneys dipped in glamour and glitter and pomp.
The very concept of government is in itself an abstraction. It is an artificial social edifice that seems to give weaker men a sense of security (or false security), even when it is at bottom a threat to them. The assumption is that the establishment (meaning the power elite) must exist at all costs. The statist cannot imagine otherwise. He is at once a fan of the totalitarian game and an avid bouncing giggling cheerleader. His greatest dream is to be a part of the beast; to share in the “glory” of the empire and live vicariously through its conquests.
A statist thug can be anyone, from the overweight and overzealous TSA agent at the airport to the brutally nosy and vicious old lady next door. Some participate in tyranny directly by wearing the uniform and wielding the baton, while others participate behind closed doors and curtains by informing on their neighbors. Regardless of their demeanor, each statist has one thing in common; an obsession with the continuance of the system to the point of madness. There is absolutely nothing the state can do to make them second guess their love affair. No crime too shocking,no attack too unjust. During the blackest moments of mankind, they are the willing tools of oppression. They make revolution – physical revolution, necessary. With them, oligarchs take root. Without them, oligarchs take shelter, or disappear altogether…

|Facebook Flags PAC’s Obama-Benghazi Meme Post, Threatens Account Closure - Wednesday, October 31, 2012|
October 31, 2012
[Editor's note: See update at bottom of article.]
A political action committee called the Special Operations Speaks sought to capitalize on allegations that the White House issued orders to “stand down” when U.S. Libyan Ambassador Christopher Stephens placed multiple requests for military back-up by creating a meme they shared on Facebook.
Within 24 hours, their image had garnered 30,000 shares and more than 23,000 likes, but it had also called to it the attention of Facebook who placed a temporary suspension on the SOS account due to an alleged violation of the Statement of Rights and Responsibilities.
Larry Ward, the president of Political Media, the company that handles SOS’s social media posts, and the person who personally posted the controversial image, told Breitbart he put the post back up once Facebook warned him to take it down: “On Sunday, I went into the SOS Facebook page to post something else and found a warning from Facebook that we had violated Facebook’s Statement of Rights and Responsibilities with our meme. So I copied the warning, put it on the meme as as caption, and re-posted the meme to the Facebook page.”
Recently, Facebook has been particularly mindful of images painting Obama in a bad light.
We recently reported on Infowars’ own experience with Facebook when this week they flagged an image of Osama Bin Laden with the words “Al-CIA-da” stamped on it and also threatened to close down the account if we didn’t remove other questionable images.
“Since the image is not copyrighted, according to Facebook’s terms of agreement one can only assume that it was removed because it represented an example of “hate speech,” yet the picture was merely a commentary on the admitted fact that Osama Bin Laden was aided by the CIA during the cold war and that Al-Qaeda terrorists are now being supported by the Central Intelligence Agency in Syria and Libya,” Paul Watson explained.
Facebook’s targeting of these types of posts is puzzling given it’s not held such a pristine status in the past.
In May, it was revealed that Facebook was openly being used by pedophiles to trade perverse images of young children engaged in sexual acts. A four-part exposé by WND’s Chelsea Schilling revealed the DOJ knew about the illegal activity, but could do nothing. Patrick Trueman, former chief of the Child Exploitation and Oscenity Section of the DOJ, told Schilling that “…the Justice Department pursues only cases involving bestiality and gross deviancy…This strategy has never worked in any other law enforcement context, and the attorney general knows this. This strategy has allowed the entire spectrum of illegal pornography so that now there are so many child pornography cases that they cannot all be prosecuted.”
Apparently, Facebook believes it’s more important to police harmless political posts than posts endangering the lives and safety of children.
The social network is constantly plagued with images of porn and rumors of illegal data mining and CIA infiltration, and its cooperation with law enforcement agencies could be viewed as a conspiracy theory, were it not for the fact that people have been arrested for political posts.
The debacle in Benghazi has led to multiple allegations of negligence on the part of the White House and a growing public furor being muffled by the run-up to the 2012 elections.
Reports surfacing suggest terror threats in Benghazi were being reported to the White House at least a year in advance, but that requests for security reinforcement went ignored.
According to Right Side News, on September 4 Stephens sent maximum alert warnings to all the Obama Administration agencies. Now there’s the possibility that emails giving specific instructions to “stand down” exist and are slated to be made public within the next few days.
Evidence of White House negligence and involvement in the issuance of the stand down orders could be the undoing of Obama’s campaign. Is Facebook trying in vain to protect the president’s reputation?
Rumors have also begun circulating claiming that Former President Bill Clinton hired an informal legal team to counsel his wife, U.S. Secretary of State Hilary Clinton, should she take the fall for the fiasco; however, other alternative media analysts believe Obama’s Benghazi ties could ensure Clinton a 2016 election spot.
[Editor's note: Since publication of this article, Facebook has issued an apology to the SOS PAC claiming an error and allowing them to repost the image.
One Navy SEAL had this to say regarding Facebook's takedown of the image: “It looks like Obama’s liberal followers in Facebook HQ are terrified of how damaging the Benghazi scandal is for the President. We understand that Facebook can run their site however they’d like, but when they’re trying to quietly squelch opposition to what is a clear leadership failure that resulted in the tragic deaths of some of our nation’s heroes, they deserve the to be called out on it.”]
