Hard Times on Easy Street

Has your life recently grown more difficult? This may be theory right now.. but based upon the mounting evidence for it.. I’d say it could become law soon.

As believers we are all, so to speak, on ‘Easy Street’.. we have eternal life in our Savior.. and that makes our lives much easier than the lives of the lost.. we have the liberation in Messiah that slaves to sin have yet to know. We pray those bound to sin will come to know, sooner than later, that redeeming freedom from death.

Believers will have tribulation.. that is fact.. and we are to count it all joy.. and that can be difficult.. but as for going through daily life.. we have it easy.

We are protected by the saving blood and resurrection of Yahushua our Messiah.. and we have been empowered by His Holy Spirit to know and speak truth in love.

The path believers have taken is described in scripture as narrow, and hard to find.. and we know this is true.. the world is filled with gaping invitations to run the road to ruin.. and charting a path through this earthly tangle of sin is not easy.. the path to salvation is narrow, but it’s there, waiting and open for travelers.. though walking it takes Divine intervention.

But once we as believers have taken the high road of salvation.. we are free in our Savior.. and that liberty in Him, we all know, has made our lives much easier. It’s the times, i think we’d all agree, which have grown harder.. these are evil days.. full of turmoil, destruction and general uneasiness.. lots of little things in people’s lives have begun to mount.. and that mountain, for many, has begun to crumble.

Through our faith in Yahushua we could fearlessly enter the fiery furnace or calmly sleep with the lions.. we could face any unwarranted attack from the enemy with firm resolve in simply knowing and accepting that we, as believers, are protected. But we are not perfect.. and, even if we do not willfully continue in it, we will fall into sin at times.. and those times, now more than ever in our lives, are causes for concern.

It’s not the sin that should be more concerning than before.. it’s the ramifications of sin committed in a world where the enemy has us surrounded, and is closing in on our camp.

In believers’ lives, the effects of sin are becoming more dangerous than ever.. and I’d imagine these dark days have found many of us re-assessing our situations a lot more frequently than we had before.

We all have seen the tightening of the belts holding up the financial industry.. companies pursuing even small credit lapses.. natural gas companies cutting people off in winter when their bills are barely two months behind.. merchants instituting a maze of individually-identifying red tape before they give out a refund.

Of course, it hasn’t stopped there.. amidst the world-wide disaster strikes and skyrocketing levels of geo-political unrest.. the industry of government has feverishly begun sewing together all its loose ends as well.. closing off the exits on every possible avenue of freedom.. creating invisible-barred virtual prisons where people are unwittingly put to hard labor in mental slavery camps which appear to be ‘just life’.

I think Bob Marley put it well with his words “the Babylon system is a vampire.. sucking the blood of the sufferers..”

And now, and more each day, in this world where there is a major earthquake, flood, fire or something weird practically each week – we as believers have got to stand ready in our lives.

My personal life re-assessments have found me ready for the lions of the den – but unprepared for the mice of the field.

Bush (the band, of course) recorded a song with the line “It’s the little things that kill.. tearing at my brain again.. little things that kill..” and i think that now those words have rung most true. Our little sins.. like neglect.. like over-confidence.. they are the mice in the field.. and when they find us, they begin to gnaw.. not just at the visible tethers of our physical lives.. but they eat away at our unseen spiritual strength as well.

Our world is getting more evil, and everything wrong we do seems to carry much more weight than it did before.. and we know the only solution is to seek the counsel and instruction of our Savior. The days of dancing down the street singing are behind us perhaps, for now. The road is rocky and full of pitfalls.. and getting worse, most especially when we are at fault through those so-called ‘little’ sins. This is my theory, but of believers, i dare say, there’d be few who reject it.

Friends.. get your houses in order.. tie up the seams you have turned your head against in the past.. love each other without portion, and above all.. stay in our Master’s company.. read His word.. do His will.. be as close to without reproach as possible.. live like today is your last without living like today is the only day.

Our daily futures certainly don’t need to be mapped to nausea, but we do need a ‘game plan’.. because the game is on, it seems (if it’s not.. then we are even worse off than we think) – and the penalties for crossing the lines have gotten harsher.. and will continue.. until we, the believers on Yahushua, are openly the enemies.. and then it will be the worst.

Hard times on Easy Street.. I think we are probably there.. and I think if that is the case.. then what we will find on farther up the road is going to be times even harder.. until there is time no longer.. we believers are being tested.. let Yahushua bring us all out shining like gold.. turn every stone in your life.. consider sin – and run from it like it’s the plague.

Take care of the little things in life that can be controlled.. because the rest of the things we can’t control are hurtling toward us at increasing size and speed.. escape the avalanche with the simple and protective faith you have in our Savior.. do His will to the fullest daily.. He has said He will never leave us nor forsake us, and we know that to be true.

Don’t forget the little things.. these are dark days and hard, but Yahushua will surely bring us through them.

Remember Joel:

{1:1} The word of Yahuwah that came to Yo’el the son of Pethuw’el.

{2} Hear this, you elders, and give ear, all you inhabitants of the land! Has this happened in your days, or even in the days of your fathers?

{3} Tell your sons about it, your sons their sons, and their sons another generation.

{4} What the chewing locust left, the swarming locust has eaten. What the swarming locust left, the crawling locust has eaten. And what the crawling locust left, the consuming locust has eaten.

{5} Awake, you drunkards, and weep. And wail, all you drinkers of wine, because of the new wine, for it has been cut off from your mouth.

{6} For a nation has come up against My land, strong, and without number. His teeth the teeth of a lion and he has the fangs of a fierce lion.

{7} He has laid waste My vine and ruined My fig tree. He has stripped it bare and thrown it away. Its branches are made white.

{8} Lament like a virgin girded with sackcloth for the husband of her youth.

{9} The grain offering and the drink offering have been cut off from the house of Yahuwah. The temple officials mourn, who minister to Yahuwah.

{10} The field is wasted, the land mourns, for the grain is ruined, the new wine is dried up, the oil fails.

{11} Be ashamed, you farmers! Wail, you vinedressers, for the wheat and the barley, because the harvest of the field has perished.

{12} The vine has dried up and the fig tree has withered. The pomegranate tree, the palm tree also,and the apple tree. All the trees of the field are withered. Surely joy has withered away from the sons of men.

{13} Gird yourselves and lament, you temple officials. Wail, you who minister before the altar. Come! Lie all night in sackcloth, you who minister to my ‘Eloah, for the grain offering and the drink offering are withheld from the house of your ‘Eloah.

{14} Consecrate a fast. Call a sacred assembly. Gather the elders, all the inhabitants of the land to the house of Yahuwah your ‘Eloah, and cry out to Yahuwah.

{15} Alas for the day! For the day of Yahuwah is at hand. It shall come as destruction from the Almighty.

{16} Is not the food cut off before our eyes, joy and gladness from the house of our ‘Eloah?

{17} The seed shrivels under the clods, storehouses are in shambles, barns are broken down, for the grain has withered.

{18} How the animals groan! The herds of cattle are restless because they have no pasture. Even the flocks of sheep suffer punishment.

{19} O Yahuwah, to You I cry out, for fire hasdevoured the open pastures and a flame has burned all the trees of the field.

{20} The beasts of the field also cry out to You, for the water brooks are dried up and fire has devoured the open pastures.

{2:1}Blow the trumpet in Tsiyown and sound an alarm in My sacred mountain! Let all the inhabitants of the land tremble, for the day of Yahuwah is coming. For it is at hand!

{2} A day of darkness and gloominess, a day of clouds and thick darkness, like the morning spread over the mountains. A people come, great and strong, the like of whom has never been, nor will there ever be any after them, even for many successive generations.

{3} A fire devours before them and behind them a flame burns. The land is like the Garden of ‘Eden before them and behind them a desolate wilderness. Surely nothing shall escape them.

{4} Their appearance is like the appearance of horses and like swift steeds, so they run.

{5} With a noise like chariots, over mountaintops theyleap, like the noise of a flaming fire that devours the stubble, like a strong people set in battle array.

{6} Before them the people writhe in pain, all faces are drained of color.

{7} They run like mighty men. They climb the wall like men of war. Every one marches in formation and they do not break ranks.

{8} They do not push one another. Every one marches in his own column. Though they lunge between the weapons, they are not cut down.

{9} They run to and fro in the city. They run on the wall. They climb into the houses. They enter at the windows like a thief.

{10} The earth quakes before them. The skies tremble. The sun and moon grow dark and the stars diminish their brightness.

{11} Yahuwah gives voice before His army, for His camp is very great, for the executor of His word is strong. For the day of Yahuwah is great and very terrible. Who can endure it?

{12} “Now therefore,” says Yahuwah, “turn to Me with all your heart, with fasting, with weeping, and with mourning.”

{13} So rend your heart and not your garments. Return to Yahuwah your ‘Eloah for He is gracious and merciful, slow to anger, and of great kindness, and He relents from doing harm.

{14} Who knows if He will turn and relent and leave a blessing behind Him, a grain offering and a drink offering for Yahuwah your ‘Eloah?

{15} Blow the trumpet in Tsiyown, consecrate a fast, call a sacred assembly,

{16} gather the people, sanctify the congregation, assemble the elders, gather the sons and nursing babes. Let the bridegroom go out from his chamber and the bride from her dressing room.

{17} Let the temple officials, who minister to Yahuwah, weep between the porch and the altar. Let them say, “Spare Your people, O Yahuwah, and do not give Your heritage to reproach that the nations should rule over them. Why should they say among the peoples, ‘Where is their ‘Eloah?'”

{18} Then Yahuwah will be zealous for His land and pity His people.

{19} Yahuwah will answer and say to His people, “Behold! I will send you grain and new wine and oil and you will be satisfied by them. I will no longer make you a reproach among the nations.

{20} But I will remove far from you the northern army, and will drive him away into a barren and desolate land, with his face toward the eastern sea and his back toward the western sea. His stench will come up and his foul odor will rise because he has done monstrous things.”

{21} Fear not, O land! Be glad and rejoice, for Yahuwah has done marvelous things!

{22} Do not be afraid, you beasts of the field, for the open pastures are springing up and the tree bears its fruit. The fig tree and the vine yield their strength.

{23} Be glad then, you sons of Tsiyown, and rejoice in Yahuwah your ‘Eloah, for He has given you the autumn rain faithfully and He will cause the rain to come down for you. The autumn rain and the spring rain in the first month.

{24} The threshing floors shall be full of wheat and the vats shall overflow with new wine and oil.

{25} So I will restore to you the years that the swarming locust has eaten, the crawling locust, the consuming locust, and the chewing locust, My great army which I sent among you.

{26} You shall eat in plenty and be satisfied and praise the name of Yahuwah your ‘Eloah Who has dealt wondrously with you, and My people shall never be put to shame.

{27} Then you shall know that I am in the midst of Yisra’el. I am Yahuwah your ‘Eloah and there is no other. My people shall never be put to shame,

{28} and it shall come to pass afterward that I will pour out My Spirit on all flesh. Your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, your old men shall dream dreams, your young men shall see visions.

{29} And also on menservants and on maidservants I will pour out My Spirit in those days.

{30} And I will show wonders in the sky and in the earth. Blood and fire and pillars of smoke!

{31} The sun shall be turned into darkness and the moon into blood before the coming of the great and awesome day of Yahuwah.

{32} And it shall come to pass whoever calls on the name of Yahuwah shall be saved. For in Mount Tsiyown and in Yeruwshalaim there shall be deliverance, as Yahuwah has said, among the remnant whom Yahuwah calls.

Airport Body Scanners: Basic Decency Denied

Posted in 12 : Technocracy with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on 12/16/2010 by timenolonger

On December 25th of last year came a curious holiday gift wrapped in a Nigerian man’s undergarments and delivered aboard Northwest Airlines. Who can forget the so-called “Underwear Bomber”?

A bizarre incident which really evokes a deep down sense of absurdity… but treated with such seriousness by the government and media and finally by a public who is again admonished to keep remembering and believing in the imminent threat of Islamic terrorism.

Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab was supposedly on a terrorist “watch list”…the US government apparently saw no need to revoke his visa anyway because, they tell us, they were tracking his movement to learn more about him.

Seems reasonable… unless you’re one of over a million Americans who have been put on no flight lists because you’re a veteran or a member of a militia or just caught disliking government policies a little too much. Then it might seem somewhat ludicrous that the government has no qualms about letting a foreign man fly on US planes who is deemed to be a known Islamic extremist.

Then there’s Kurt Haskell… the man who witnessed the entire embarkation of the Underwear Terrorist.

His story completely disregarded by government and media alike, he witnessed the Nigerian being escorted by a well dressed, wealthy looking man who was clearly not an employee of the airline. Though appearing Indian, the man spoke English like any American and reasoned with the airline concerning the Nigerian’s lack of a passport “we do this all the time”.

“The FBI visited my office on December 29, 2009, and showed me a series of approximately 10 photographs. None were of the SDM. I asked the FBI if they brought the Amsterdam security video to help me identify the SDM, but they acted as though my request was ridiculous. The FBI asked me what accent the SDM spoke in and I indicated that he had an American accent similar to my own. I further indicated that he wore a tan suit without a tie, was Indian looking, around age 50, 6’0” tall and 250-260 lbs. I further indicated that I did not believe that he was an airline employee and that he was not on our flight…

“On January 20, 2010, current Director of the National Counterterrorism Center (NCTC), Michael E. Leiter, made a startling admission. Leiter indicated that: “I will tell you, that when people come to the country and they are on the watch list, it is because we have generally made the choice that we want them here in the country for some reason or another…

“Could the SDM have been a U.S. Government official? He dressed in a suit and not a security uniform. Check. He indicated we do this all the time. Could “we” be the U.S. Government? Check. He spoke English with an American accent. Check. Would he need to convince the ticket agent that this was a normal procedure to allow boarding without a passport? Check. Would he have the ability to obtain such clearance? Check. Could he enter this security area even though he wasn’t a passenger? Check. Would the ticket agent likely refer this request to a manager? Check. Would the U.S. Government not want this information public and try to hide it? Check.”

– Kurt Haskell haskellfamily.blogspot.com

The incident hit the media outlets like alarm bells for the next 9-11. Ignoring every indication of a carefully engineered plan to just this end, the masses barely flinched when immediately airport security went from highly inconvenient to downright abusive overnight. Enter the backscatter x-ray full body scanner.

If you were under the impression that the airport body scanner became a reality as a result of a sudden need for higher security, you’d be mistaken.

These invasive little devices are the creation of a client company of one Michael Chertoff, former head of Homeland Security who took advantage of this very convenient underwear episode months after the company, Rapiscan, sold 25 million dollars of the technology to TSA. What a timely sale.

If there is any right which sums up the most basic of freedoms, it has to be the right to ones own body. Nothing is more personal, nothing else is more truly in any persons possession than their own flesh. It must certainly be a sort of canary in the coal mine where it comes to personal freedoms when the majority are willing to submit their right to their own body to strangers who claim an authority over it in the name of…. defending the Land of the Free?

When it is suddenly OK that airports demand to see a person nude in one of their ionizing backscatter scanners, does it ever occur to the populace that hypothetically being conquered by Islamo-fascists could be any worse?

At least they tend to agree we should keep our clothes on. Hence I consider it the height of hypocrisy when someone declares of the present ongoing “war on terror” and the military involvement in it as “defending our freedoms”. Stripping people (literally) of their humanity is a path to freedom in what reality?

At the risk of sounding old fashioned… back in the day, when “men were men”, it would be a cold day in a very hot place when anyone’s wife or child or elderly mother would be allowed to be subjected to a strip search by people whose moral character was unknown at best and extremely questionable at worst.

They, after all, are not criminals… they are average citizens simply trying to travel and they are subject to the sorts of abuses which literally are criminal in any other context. If the idea of a neighbor with high powered binoculars spying on one’s wife or child while dressing is disturbing… this should be more so by virtue of the fact that it is condoned by those in “authority”.

All common decency and dignity aside… this device is an X-ray. It works by way of ionizing radiation, a serious cumulative health hazard in spite of the assurances of the FDA and government spokesmen.

The FDA being the same organization who feels no need to warn people on food labels of eating genetically manipulated organisms, who approve thousands of brand name drugs that are later shown to cause numerous fatalities… these are the people the public trusts when it comes to irradiating their bodies at the airport.

Ionizing radiation is known to cause chromosome damage. Even the supposedly innocuous “background” radiation which passes through Earth’s atmosphere and reaches Earth is not so harmless… it too, eventually breaks the body down and causes aging.

Most of the radiation from a backscatter scanner is concentrated on the surface of the skin and the fatty layer just below it… the potential risk for skin and breast cancer is especially concerning.

The FDA claim that it would require some 5,000 scans per year to reach any level of threat, even if generally correct (and evidence would suggest it isn’t) does not account for the 1 in 20 people who are genetically highly sensitive to radiation or the fact that children are all much more sensitive to radiation than adults as they are still growing.

Ionizing radiation is comprised of EM waves or subatomic particles that basically rip the electrons from the atoms and molecules in one’s cells. If it sounds like bad news, that’s because it is.

The risks, the “experts” say, are outweighed by the benefits. The benefits are that people are supposed to feel more secure. Secure from what, I wonder? Secure from the one terrorist who did not get the memo on the new technology?

The next obvious step, if one buys into the terrorist threat line, is that they will inevitably begin stowing their explosive devices, etc. in body cavities. What then? Are you really ready for a full cavity search in order to board a plane? Are you living in a free country when survival at any cost is the new definition thereof? Is there anyone left who feels basic human rights are worth a little risk if there is some?

Having rolled over like cowering puppies, the public has not purchased peace of mind, they’ve simply helped the government up the ante on paranoia.

Compliance to body scanners has proven that Fear and Cowardice are the real slave masters of the masses and that they will bow before any oppressor who serve their tools, Tyranny and Corruption. They will allow their wives, their kids, their old mothers and fathers to be manhandled, insulted, poked, irradiated, stared at in the nude and reduced to tears.

Don’t be fooled by the assurances TSA has given that the images cannot be stored or transferred or that the images themselves are not well defined and photograph clear.

TSA’s own documents clearly specify that the machines must have both image storing and sending ability.

The images the machines produce must be able to focus in on the most private details of the body in order to be able to identify any suspicious item attached to the body.

There is technically an opt-out option for the scanners.

This “opting out”, however, simply puts one in a position to choose between a nude picture of themselves viewed by multiple strangers or an incredibly personal pat down which includes a startlingly thorough feel-up of one’s most private areas.

That’s called “molestation” anywhere else on earth.

The obvious intent of such a horribly intrusive pat down is to ensure that the body scanner remain the preferable option for most people. Most people would rather pose for an embarrassing picture than subject themselves to a legalized sexual assault.

If you think we’ve reached the absolute limit in denying citizens a right to basic privacy, try to imagine a future when this is the norm in a wide variety of public places: court rooms, libraries, bus stations, schools, sporting events, etc.

Now ask yourself if you think you have the courage to resist before that becomes a reality. Please, American citizens – at least for the sake your kids and your elders – have the guts and the decency to refuse this perverse form of oppression.

“Defend the poor and fatherless.

Do justice to the afflicted and needy.

Deliver the poor and needy.

Free them from the hand of the wicked.”

– Psalm 82:3,4

Today’s Headline: Escaped Mind on the Loose

Posted in 02 : The Truth Is Out There... with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on 09/13/2010 by timenolonger

What comes through the television, radio and internet in the form of views expressed by highly influential personalities, whether they be political, scientific or religious carry with them a greatly under-estimated power to sway the masses.

Though most will assume themselves to be free thinkers, generally people will not hesitate to “parrot” an opinion from an “expert” with whom they agree.

Here is how public opinion gets pushed…

Appeal to humanitarianism:

Most of us want to believe that we are humane individuals who want the best for others. Knowing this… the landscapers of public opinion can not represent their ideas in the harsh terms they really resemble in the light of day… they must appeal to some “greater good” to support their view.

It becomes a necessity for the greater good to sacrifice freedom, quality of life or even life itself so that the many can be benefited though it comes at cost to the few.

The “lesser of two evils” is often the staple philosophy behind such supposed humanitarian appeals. It is better to vaccinate children with the risk of complications that take some greater risk with contagious diseases. It is better to subject airline passengers to a little dangerous radiation and a brief humiliating experience, insisting they go through a body scanner than to risk safety to possible hijackers. (etc..)

Instill Fear:

Whenever possible it behooves the pushers to subtly suggest that the alternative to their viewpoint will result in calamity and suffering.

Always having a mythical, but much believed in, Bogeyman to threaten the public with is very effective. Popular Bogeymen we’ve heard much about are such imposing figures as Mr. Al Qaeda, Captain Global Warming and Dr. Incurable Disease.

Convince the Public of their Incompetence:

The sweetly delivered but condescending message that many minds have accepted is that the public is simply too unintelligent to form their own opinions or gather their own evidence.

You are quickly told to sit down and be quiet (in more subtle terms of course) should you begin asking too many insightful questions about widely accepted beliefs.

The insistence which filters through is that the people are not experts, and only experts are qualified to set a standard of opinion or have enough knowledge to comprehend why that opinion should be considered correct.

Even the layperson who is considered more intelligent than average is likely to simply be someone who has a better memory for retaining all the answers which they have heard the “experts” preach rather than the one who questions those experts.

Push a Subjective View of Reality:

I can be wrong and you can be wrong and we can all be wrong together… but they would have you believe something to the opposite effect of this which flies in the face of basic sanity: “I can be right and you can be right and we can all be right together… even though none of us agree.”

This is supposedly a recipe for peace in society… the idea that we can each retain our own view of reality but we can’t call another view wrong or attempt to correct it.

In the end this politically correct philosophy is hypocritical since those views which agree with the mainstream become those views which are protected from the “fringe” who would differ.

The common sense understanding that right is correct and wrong… isn’t… is no longer acceptable.

Encourage Emotionalism:

It’s impossible to impress rational minds with the irrational… so rational thinking is not the friend of anyone attempting the brainwash the public.

Emotion is the catalyst by which people become entrenched in illusions of perception. Advertising is designed to produce euphoric feelings at the thought of owning something shiny and new.

Fluff human interest stories on the news evoke emotions of sympathy or shallow happiness, distracting attention from real world changing events.

What people tend to care about and spend the greatest amount of concern with becomes that which effects them on an emotional level. The opinions and views which people hold become those which gratify their emotional interests.

Shape a Livestock Mentality:

Livestock do not normally attempt to defend themselves from whatever use their masters might have for them, even if that use means they end up dead.

In the same way people are encouraged to view authority figures as above questioning, and if one should question them it is perceived as abnormal and even dangerous.

The public is strongly under the impression that they must be kept, maintained and protected by “authorities” of government, military and medicine. The ideas of self sufficiency, self defense or natural self medication are regarded with suspicion and fear of an almost superstitious nature.

Overcome The Serpent System…

There is no one who would not benefit from a conscious effort to combat the subconscious warfare against their individuality, creativity and ability to think resourcefully.

From the very asleep to the fairly awake… no one is utterly immune to the constant pressures of mind bending tactics perpetrated on society at large.

Becoming consciously aware that such a thing is intentionally designed is only half the battle… there needs to then be a committed effort to rethink everything from the ground up for each individual.

These are some conscious mental reminders which if employed as habit can go a long way to begin thinking as an individual in the midst of a world that thinks like a herd…

Let the Creator and His Commandments Be Your Measure of Morality:
No matter what is presented as good, beneficial or humanitarian, no matter what leaps of “logic” might be presented to make a course of action seem necessary for the “greater good”… if even one individual is wronged in the process…it’s wrong.

Man can not redefine morality, being immoral creatures, to suit their convenience… a lesser of two evils is always still evil.

Have Faith, Not Fear:

Once one puts their trust in YHWH, knowing that there is no situation too dire to prevent His protection and that not even death is to be feared… no amount of badgering with fear tactics will cause that one to make irrational judgments based on some real or imagined threat.

Recognize Your Own Intelligence:

You are not lower species than those who are deemed “experts”… you have the mental capacity to wrestle with challenging concepts, identify sensible answers and reject senseless ones.

Given the time and the desire, most people are perfectly capable of comprehending complex subject matters and coming to better conclusions about them than those they have been led to believe. The Creator made mankind with big brains… amen.

Truth Is Stable and Doesn’t Ask Our Opinion:

Just as there is an obvious and unavoidable answer to 1+1… there are similarly sure, correct answers to everything else… even if we don’t know them all.

We need to humbly recognize that we have to yield to truth, as it won’t yield to us, and stick by that in spite of every argument of “tolerance” the world throws at us.

Tolerance of people should mean being compassionate and honest, while the level of tolerance we have for ideas needs to be judged according to real morality and technical correctness.

Think More, Feel Less:

Removing every instinct to be offended, flattered, enticed, excited or scared and simply analyzing the raw data has the effect of bringing us to conclusions which are grounded in the best of what we Know rather than simple drives and urges.

Whereas we might Feel enticed to buy an advertised product… the facts dictate that it is unnecessary and overpriced. There is a reason that the eyes are connected to the brain and not the heart… 🙂

You are Not a Kept Pet:

You have the ability to think and act as an independent entity. You are able to learn new skills to provide for, protect and defend you and your family and it is normal behavior to utilize them within your capacity.

There should likewise be no reasonable expectation of consistent and benevolent provision or protection from government agencies or medical personnel. Free means free… let’s live it.

Big Brother… Get Out of My Trash

Posted in 12 : Technocracy with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on 08/26/2010 by timenolonger

It appears that there is no level of absurdity too extreme for Big Brother – and simultaneously, there is no level of absurdity which is too intolerable to the citizens of this country.

Incrementally, the nit-picking controllers continue to administer fatality to freedom, by way of thousands of paper-cuts over decades of time.

And since no single wound hurts bad enough to galvanize the ever-more intoxicated masses to any sort of action, the process continues.

The latest in ridiculous micro-management techniques employed by the ruling class, is Trash Monitoring.

Unbelievable, really, that even the refuse one throws out can’t be left alone by this intrusive parasite of a world system which is evolving (or de-evolving).

In the name of (what else) “saving the planet”, US cities are adopting a trash monitoring program much like one which has been in place in the UK for the past few years.

Some 2.8 million homes in Great Britain now have trash bins fitted with RFID chips which monitor the amount of trash being disposed.

Some areas are requiring residents to sort their trash by color on penalty of a $1,500 (US) fine.

The US normally follows in Police State tactics one step behind the UK, and so it is that now the nosey dumpster-diving mafia have arrived on American shores.

Obama has dumped half a million dollars of stimulus funds into an endeavor to produce microchipped trash bins to ensure that US citizens in Dayton Ohio will be good little sheep and recycle.

City and Country government supplied another $60,000 of their own.

All residents of Dayton will get their microchipped trash bins and the program will be coming out of the tax payers’ pockets to the tune of 1.6 million dollars over the next few years.

Charlotte NC has also joined the Green Mania Movement, and the latest city on board is Cleveland Ohio, which perhaps has caught the worst end of the trash bin spy network in the US to date.

In Cleveland, the plan is to make you recycle… or else.

The plan won’t be fully operational until the beginning of next year, but when it is, I can safely say that Cleveland has just added one more reason in a long list for residents to find somewhere else to live.

The chip will let the city know how often any one household recycles.

If a household has not recycled in some weeks, a trash supervisor will rummage through their trash and count the recyclable items which the offenders have instead (gasp) discarded.

If the bins are found to contain 10% or more recyclable items… the household is Fined $100.

The end goal is to incorporate all residents of Cleveland in this program over the course of a few years.

Fines will also be leveled on people who simply put out too much trash… recyclable or not. Those fines run from $250 to $500.

You can already be fined in Cleveland for putting your trash out too early or leaving the bins out too late.

Who knew taking out the trash could be such a pain in the backside?

If something as simple and routine, and fairly ignored as a matter of daily thought, could be made into a giant irritation, you can be sure that the PTB will find a way to do it.

Furthermore, if they can manage to force you into a position to have every minute detail of your life examined under a microscope… well that’s enough to make them giddy.

They also realize that people generally don’t like a regular pain in the backside which costs them money besides, and so they realize they need to provide you with some sort of incentive to just sit down and take it. That incentive, these days, comes as the rallying cry “Save the Planet… Recycle!”

Those who are hardcore environmentalists, and even those who are not, are entirely convinced that ‘good people recycle’ and ‘bad, careless people throw things away’.

They are convinced that we will all find ourselves buried under mountains of trash someday in a landscape barren of trees (since we’ve used them all for paper) and choking to death from all the pollution and lack of oxygen… unless everyone recycles.

The propaganda which demands either you accept giving up some of your natural freedoms or you will die a miserable death on a dying planet is a hit.

The compliant masses are given an incentive to feel good about themselves for bowing down to strict regulation. They even acquire a sort of “martyrs complex” whereby they feel such a level of self-righteousness that their venom toward non-compliant people borders on a hostility one might reserve for serial killers.

It is time to do a little homework on the claims environmentalism makes concerning the impact of the private sector on the planet’s ecosystems.

Environmentalism is a misnomer… instead of being a movement of the people to help clean up the natural environment, what it is precisely, is a political tool by which government manipulates the masses into accepting the chipping away of their human rights.

If you would really believe that there is any attempt within government which remotely resembles cleaning up the planet, consider these things which are never mentioned as environmental concerns by government and mainstream media alike:

GMO Crops:

An enterprise which is insanely destructive to the ecosystem – not only will genetically manipulated crops destroy Your health, but they will contaminate, and eventually destroy, their own natural counterparts. They kill bee populations needed for pollination, and pose a threat to any wildlife who eats them.

These crops aren’t just OK with government, they have gone to great lengths to ensure producers of them don’t even have to tell you you’re eating them.

Ever hear mainstream media or DC griping at you to stop eating GMO produce?

Suppression of Free Energy:

You may believe it has simply been a matter of necessity that energy is produced in the manner it is, by means of great amounts of money and fossil fuels, all neatly kept in control by a few companies around the country.

Not true by a long shot…

The means to produce energy which would be entirely clean and Cost-Free to every person on the planet after an initial set up, has existed since the early 1900’s in the wake of technology brought to light by Nicola Tesla.

Why don’t we have it? well… ask the government who wants to microchip your trash bins… it beats me.

Pharmaceutical Industry Waste:

Without even mentioning the process of making the pharmaceuticals themselves, let’s just consider the ramifications of millions of people popping pills all over the country.

Medication which, by the way, has never cured anything (but has made the drug companies very wealthy), is a serious pollutant in the water supply.

These medications remain in the water supply even after treatment at water facilities, and as a result they have devastating effects on the wildlife who come in contact with the residual chemicals.

Now we have populations of fish and amphibians who can’t produce fertile males, and shellfish who have no natural instinct to avoid predators.

Since when has the government done anything to try to promote natural prevention and cure instead of pharmaceuticals?

Water Treatment Facilities:

Across the nation, water treatment facilities maintain a practice of adding cocktails of chemicals to the drinking water of municipalities… some 400 different sorts of chemicals actually.

Among these are Sodium Fluoride… a horrifically toxic chemical waste left-over from manufacturing facilities.

These chemicals are unspeakably harmful to the human body, not to mention their impact on the environment.

Sodium Fluoride is particularly hard to filter out of water once it is in it… even distillation will not remove the chemical.

It is a government decision that city water supplies should be a toxic soup of waste chemicals.

Feeling less motivated by Big Brother’s insistence that you recycle yet?

Recycling has no great benefit to the environment, as the process itself produces pollution.

Recyling does little to nothing to help keep trees alive, since the paper industry is responsible for most of the trees planted anyway.

At one time in the past there was a perfectly biodegradable, wholly renewable source for paper products which required much less processing than wood pulp, and would have done away with the need to ever use wood for paper production altogether.

That product was hemp… but the government, on behalf of the companies whose interest was in wood pulp, quickly found reasons to demonize the reputation of cannabis in the public mind so that a simple wild plant became utterly taboo, and a cheap and plentiful resource was abandoned.

The entire question of recycling to spare trees would be as easily resolved by substituting hemp for wood pulp now.

This does not seem to be of any interest in DC either.

Ever heard of straining gnats and swallowing camels?

Obviously there is no point in the government mandating recycling to any end which benefits the environment while at the same time displaying such a complete disinterest in addressing real issues of environmental concern.

One might easily brush that off with flippant remarks of some general lack of intelligence on the part of politicians, but that is not the root cause suggested by the ever-increasing surveillance grid which has been gradually introduced to US citizens.

One by one, an individual has to either keep coming up with excuses for measures like these, or reasonably decide that they are all to some greater purpose.

Answering the issue with “It’s just a Traffic Camera… no big deal”,

“It’s just a Product RFID… no big deal”,

“it’s just Recycling… no big deal”…

eventually ends at “it’s just an Implantable National Security Device… It’s no big deal.”

At what point do people get sick of it?

At what point is it too much invasion?

At what point are people willing to say…

“forget it, I’m not going to take it anymore.”?

I don’t know what you’re planning to do about it, residents of Cleveland Ohio, but I can tell you what I would do… I would outright refuse to comply… period.

Perhaps I’d try disabling that nasty little chip with a neodymium magnet, or maybe I’d simply think about hiring a private trash disposal company even if it cost more… possibly if all else failed I’d move.

Come hell or high water though, $100 fines or $1,000 fines (which I would also flatly refuse to pay)… my answer would have to remain “No”.

I think it’s past time for a little civil disobedience.

Humanity is endowed with certain inalienable rights which are by nature the gift of their Creator, not a government privilege.

The Spirit of the “Liliths” in Modern Society

Posted in 06 : Possessing Spirits with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on 08/12/2010 by timenolonger

“You’ve come a long way, baby.” The marketing slogan of Virginia Slims, boasted on behalf of “liberated women” in 1968.

The concept of a societal shift into a new era where women were supposedly, finally breaking free of an ages old, male dominated world structure seemed to many women to herald a brighter future, and caused many old fashioned men to long for the “good old days”.

As it has panned out, instead of liberated, women might actually find themselves enslaved to the same old “by the sweat of your brow” misfortune which has always been the lot of men, minus any real elevation of respect, since now more than ever, women are viewed objects of lust.

That is normally the payout of Satan’s promises… he dangles a carrot before some desiring eyes, but when the object is obtained, it seems to always come with all the side effects and none of the cure.

Satan has understood the concept of “the grass is always greener on the other side” for thousands of years, and has always utilized that philosophy against every faction of human society, and even against his own kind… other angels who took the bait and followed his example.

The feminist agenda, like any deceptive philosophy which has shaped what has become the modern structure of society, has beginnings grounded in a precedent set in the early years of human history.

There’s nothing new under the sun… Satan simply knows how to recycle and repackage old news like it was today’s headlines. He re-gifts… and the gifts are usually less appealing than fruitcake.

The beginning of objectification of women is blame that can be easily put on the rebel Watchers.

This class of angels who rebelled in the act of taking human partners and fathering children, were essentially corrupted through lust and for the first time in history, human women began to be a commodity based only on their sexual appeal.

The Watchers, however, had entered into a world which was already in the control of Satan and his rebels.

The atmosphere of Earth was primed for temptation to sin, and certainly Satan recognized the immense value to his goals that could be gained by encouraging the sin of the Watchers to take place.

They brought to the playing field what Satan’s forces lacked… a means to Physically enter in upon the human scene, and change it on an organic level.

The leader of the rebel Watchers, Shemyhaza proposed, what no doubt had already been a temptation in the Watchers thoughts for a while, that they each choose wives, live with them and have children.

She demands he reveal to her the true name of Elohim in exchange for the union, which he at first refuses to do, and then finally agrees.

The picture that we get, then, is the first occasion of a woman manipulating herself into a place of power with someone who would, under normal circumstance, not be subject to her control.

This description of events being essentially the gist of what actually took place would explain the basis of the reason for Ishatar becoming so predominant over her husband in the pagan societies following the flood.

This same legend takes a sudden odd turn at the end which, interestingly reveals the power of her manipulation, not only on one rebel angel, but on the direction world history.

The story ends with Ishatar using the very Name of Elohim which Shemyhaza revealed to her to enable her to fly, and by pronouncing it, escapes his affections and becomes immortalized as a star in the Heavens for retaining her virtue.

This ending to the tale flies in the face of every description of who Ishatar was to the cultures who deified her… far from being a virginal figure of untouchable chastity, she is synonymous everywhere with feminine sexuality taken to a domineering level.

The romanticized fable of the virginal Ishatar has become the prototype of the Catholic Mary, however… even to the point of retaining the title “Queen of Heaven”.

Ishatar then, was the original “women’s Liberation” activist.

Much like her modern age followers… she did not better her position ultimately, as we will see… instead she became the posterchild sex object.

Deified for her position as a consort to a “god” who became faceless and nameless over the years, and as a reproductive tool.

The legend of Lilith has retained some heavily idolized fame in the modern world.

When people generally think of Lilith, they might first recall a story of Adam’s original wife who refused to behave subordinately to him, and instead chose to join herself to a fallen angel (usually cited to be Lucifer) and produced a horde of demon children.

This tale bears no supportable resemblance to anything which literally took place… however, there is a thinly veiled element of veracity which can be traced to reveal the real identity of “Lilith” and where such a story sprang from.

There is not even a scant mention anywhere in scripture or ancient history to support the notion of Adam having had a first wife who was created directly from the Earth as he was, and who was eventually replaced by the more suitable Eve. This concoction is the product of a publication in the middle ages by an anonymous author.

A mention of Lilith occurs in scriptural canon, in Isaiah 34:14, where the word “liylith” is translated as “screech owl” or “night creature”…

“The wild beasts of the desert shall also meet with the jackals and the wild goat shall bleat to its companion. Also the night creature (liylith) shall rest there and find for herself a place of rest. “

– Isaiah 34:14

Strong’s Concordance gives the definition for liylith as “a night specter”, though if the word is followed back through it’s etymology, one will come to references to wreaths and twining or twisting… followed back even farther, the root comes down to the word – “lawah” which means to join to, to unite with, to cleave.

We then, should be starkly reminded how the marital union between two individuals are described in scripture… as a cleaving, a uniting, a joining.

Those very terms are applied also in respect to those women who married angelic husbands.

Even the symbolism of the wreath, which is referenced in the definition of “liylith” is recognized in pagan practice as a symbol which memorializes fertility deities.

“Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh.”

– Genesis 2:24

It is fitting that the name Lilith should found to correlate to a joining, a unifying or a cleaving to… the earliest records which are extant of this name call Lilith a handmaid or sacred prostitute in the service of Ishatar.

Further recorded mentions by Assyrian sources do not reflect a Person, but rather a type of entity with the word “lilitu”.

This was a sexually predatory female entity which killed children, brought disease and was associated with storms. This same theme runs parallel to Greek traditions of sirens, who are described much the same way.

Sirens were regarded in Greek mythology as deadly female beings who dwelt either in water or near it… luring men who sailed those waters to their death by singing a song which they could not resist.

The men would then seek to follow the sound, only to be drowned in the waters.

Nymphs, naiads and dryads were similar categories of feminine entities who preyed on men through lust dwelling in fresh water streams, pools or trees which were fed from haunted water sources.

This is the answer which 1 Enoch gives as to the origin of all such beings…

“And Uriel said to me: ‘Here shall stand the angels who have connected themselves with women, and their spirits assuming many different forms are defiling mankind and shall lead them astray into sacrificing to demons ‘as gods’,

(here shall they stand,) till ‘the day of’ the great judgment in which they shall be judged till they are made an end of.

And the women also of the angels who went astray shall become sirens.’ “

– 1 Enoch 19

It is most reasonable that the legend of an individual named Lilith has grown out of a general term applied to those women who “joined” themselves to the rebel Watchers, and that it was never in reference to a single female entity.

The wives (and concubines) of the Watchers would naturally fall in line behind Ishatar, who would be the “first lady” so to speak, her husband being the foremost authority amongst the rebels.

Ishatar has not lost any relevance in this modern age, which indicates the greater magnitude of importance she came to represent, above even the majority of the fallen angels… particularly their leader.

Besides the Catholic Church, who proudly displays her as the supposed mother of Messiah, she is a favorite corporate logo and a beloved symbol of “liberty” in the United States.

She is emblazoned on the sides of Starbucks coffee cups and her figure is the first image you will see when you watch any Columbia film production.

Her presence as a force, behind a misguided concept of feminism, still galvanizes young girls to assert their “individuality”, only to be dragged into an ever worsening scene of female objectification and degradation.

It is no accident that a “lilith” philosophy reigns in the same age as rampant unwed pregnancies and abortion…

she has always been the reigning queen of deviant behavior and infanticide since the far, ancient past until this day.

This Mad World: If It Was All a Movie

Posted in 09 : Global Enchantment with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on 08/03/2010 by timenolonger

I would watch this world if it was a movie.. I’d find it mildly amusing in parts, atrocious and unthinkable in others… I’d give it an A for special effects, but otherwise I’d just be thankful it was “only a movie”.

It would probably be a Zombie movie… lots of zombies. Hordes of blank-faced, mindless people wandering around, moaning unintelligible things about Labron James and Lindsay Lohan.

They wouldn’t eat people the way movie zombies usually do, instead they would devour bottle after bottle of pills with names they couldn’t pronounce and wash it down with a tall glass of heavily fluoridated water.

Zombieland

As these things usually go, there would be among the zombified populace, a few who had maintained their conscious wills and cognitive functions, but who instead of attempting to kill the zombies, would desperately be trying to cure them of their living-deadness.

Those who would do so are then met with great hostility by the Zombies who operate under a strange, robotic psychology which is nearly impenetrable.

The Zombie psychology could not really be called a psychology which Belongs to the zombies themselves, rather it’s like a computer virus which has infiltrated their minds via routes of infection which are put everywhere in everyday things.

Those everyday things first inject a highly addictive element which makes returning to the source of infection a great delight to the individual as they are slowly and obliviously sapped of all their will, reasoning capabilities and common sense.

Oddly enough, by the same increments it deprives those people of those things which impart functional intellect, they become increasingly sure of their own competence.

This is the means by which the “infection” becomes so persistently hard to cure of course.

Somewhere in the shadows are insidiously greedy and heartless men who have gathered great piles of wealth by way of easily influencing the zombified society to buy and consume everything which they market… all of these things in turn having the secret ingredient of “zombification” imbued in them.

An endless cycle ensues which both profits the villains and keeps a tight, nearly unbreakable reign on the unfortunate souls who sink into a slavery which they remain entirely unaware of and unable to question.

The horrified minority who still retain their wits beg and plead, reason and debate to no effect. They heap piles of official documents on the table declaring the agenda of the villainous slave masters, they show photos of said evildoers doing their evil, they produce lists and lists of ingredients of the “zombie toxins” fed them.

The Zombies stare blankly, laugh occasionally and reply in cyborg tones:

“Aww… those don’t mean anything really.” “You Photo shopped Those!” and “what the heck is Bisphenol A? Must be good for us or they wouldn’t sell it.”

It’s enough to make the intercessor on behalf of the zombie cry, or yank their own hair out… or maybe even a brief moment of wanting to yank the zombie’s hair out.

The frazzled, would-be good Samaritans take to the streets with signs, hoping in groups they’ll be noticed, maybe even televised, only to find that the Zombies work in every faction of society and media employs the zombiefied exclusively.

In no time, zombies employed in law enforcement come, and without due reason or explanation, drag the hapless freedom fighters away to be fingerprinted, photographed, and filed, then to sit behind bars hoping that somehow justice will prevail in spite of the madness and that they might go free.

Out in the Great Mad World, everyone else is having a lot of fun. They go on shopping sprees with their girlfriends and out to bars at night… they stay up late watching their favorite shows, go to football games, mumble and giggle about this and about that.

They each feel a nagging emptiness, but of course just a little more of the “drug” and they’ll forget it for a while more. They each feel a sense of something wrong… they know they aren’t “measuring up” somewhere… but if any of them dare to ask for an answer or a remedy they are quickly herded to the nearest resource of zombified psychology to be reassured that they are OK… it’s just that they haven’t come to love themselves the way they should.

In reality, they haven’t failed to be self concerned… in fact all they are ever concerned for is themselves.

They want to be a Good Member of Society, have lots of money, nice clothes, nice cars… they care immensely what all the other zombies think of them because they know that, just as they do, all the others are measuring themselves against them and they want to come out on top.

This is part of the disease of course, because as long as the victim is concerned about how they “measure up”… they will be much too distracted to find out that it doesn’t matter since they and all their peers are simply slaves.

So on they go… loving the pointless and hating anything that smacks of a “fringe” thought… which is nearly any sort of thought at all.

They stand roaring for their favorite sports team in a packed and glaringly lit stadium, overcome with the ecstasy of “victory” that is as meaningless and material as their own lives.

The faint sparks of neural synapse still firing are bent on a primal blood thirst in the wake of a battle for who knows what. Somewhere, lost in the midst of the clamor, a peanut vendor drops his merchandise in the aisle.

His epiphany comes in stark revelation, surfacing from the buried memory of a nameless would-be benefactor of zombified people that shatters his perception with a single, reasonable idea… “this is stupid”.

Fandemonium

“Hey everyone… what are you doing? Don’t you know that those peanuts have MSG in them? Don’t eat that! What are you watching? Don’t you understand that all those players out there make millions of dollars and you spent your kid’s shoe money to come see them chase a ball around? What’s wrong with you all? Why aren’t you Living? Why aren’t you caring that there are people in this world that can barely survive who are doing more living than you? Don’t you know that life is short… time is short… there are questions to be answered, a Creator to get to know, things to discover, joy and peace and wisdom to be gained?”

Well… I don’t know precisely how the story ends for all those people who are screaming over the one little voice of the peanut vendor, but I suppose I can guess how it goes for Peanut Guy himself.

Amidst all the frustration and heartache and trouble he is sure to encounter in the Mad World trying to cure a zombie or two… he’s finally free.

He’s probably going to feel like throwing in the towel one day in the face of so much apathy and lunacy… but he knows that there is always that next single voice in a crowd of thousands who might one day ask “What’s wrong with all of you?”.

Don't Go Nuts in this Mad World...

The Weapon of Internet Free Speech : I Refuse to be Disarmed

Posted in 07 : The Ruling Controllers with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on 07/15/2010 by timenolonger

For more than three years now i’ve avoided using direct Google searches.

Google, much like Walmart or Microsoft, is one of those despicable monopolies born of government approval that leaves me with feelings of nausea and a lack of self respect to patronize.

It’s not out of paranoia that i refuse to make it easy for Big Brother to collect my online data and spy on what is not, in any way, their business… it’s just that it’s Wrong, and I hate making the job of a wrong-doer easier.

Instead of direct Google searches,
I’ve enjoyed the use of a little operation
called Scroogle.org

This nice little invention of genius gave me Google results without collecting my information or dumping spyware on me.

scroogle.org says "Don't Be Evil"

One sad day… Scroogle announced that they no longer had access to the Google interface, and so they could not provide search results anymore. Fortunately..that was a false alarm, and Scroogle did find the interface again and the site continued to work.

A couple days ago [around June 3rd]… it went down again… the same reason… Google apparently is not all that fond of providing their services without getting the benefit of spying on us.

It looks less promising that Scroogle will be up and running again in the future… but we can hope.

"Google devalues everything it touches."
From the Scroogle Gallery

Recent Update: Scroogle.org is back online, and running fine.

The reason this is such a concern is that the loss of Scroogle is not, by far, the only evidence I’ve begun to notice of a shift in the online world.

A shift that is taking place slowly (these things always happen slowly so you can get used to them, rather than get angry at them) but surely from the freedom of expression and the option to keep yourself anonymous… to an environment of track, trace and don’t say the wrong thing.

We who write on blogs and forums concerned with civil liberties and concerned with the overreach of government ought to have a healthy level of concern for this trend.

What i mean by “healthy level of concern” is that

When we are silenced… free speech is over… period. When that occurs, even those who presently call us crazy are going to be sorry.

Another July 4th has come and gone, and while people are content to prattle on about the celebration of civil rights and free speech… they are far less inclined to defend it.

The defense thereof rests in adamant refusal… I Won’t shut up… and I Won’t roll over and accept the loss of anonymity or freedom of expression.

I still haven’t done a Google search… and i won’t. If Google succeeds in wiping out every vestige of a working, relatively private search engines on the net… I won’t use Google.

Don't Get GoogledFrom the Scroogle Gallery

I’ve resigned myself for now to Startpage.com… which is private enough (at least we hope)… but whose search results leave a lot to be desired.

In fact, the search results reek of serious filtering and censorship to be sure… I wouldn’t expect anything else out of a search engine that offers privacy… I imagine anyone with the idea of providing a legitimate, private search engine with uncensored, unfiltered results is up against a mountain of tyrannical hindrance.

Private search engines are precisely what we need though… and anyone with the time, resources, ability and guts to attempt such a thing, has my utmost respect and gratitude as a real defender of freedom.

As for other concerning details of the online war against freedom of speech… don’t be shocked as you begin to happen across more and more sites which are simply gone… links which are broken and search results which are “intercepted” (for your own protection they say).

Anyone attempting to research the anything which the government might remotely classify as “conspiracy theory” will find that task getting more and more difficult… the search results becoming more and more repetitive and unhelpful.

In just attempting to update myself on what legislation has been proposed or passed recently in connection to internet censorship..i encountered all this…

A search result reading:

“A one-two punch handed down this week by U.S. courts to free-speech advocates may signal that the freewheeling days of unfettered speech on the Internet are numbered, First Amendment experts said.”

…ended here:

A link which said this:

“Lieberman Sends Letter To Google, Demands Youtube Censorship”

…ended here:

And a link which said this:

“Free Speech Rights Not Guaranteed in ‘Public’ Online Spaces”

resulted in a page which said this:

“The page you have requested is no longer available”

Sad… even if you don’t agree with the idea of “conspiracy theories” in general as they are defined in society, even if you don’t care if you never read another article on such subjects, you should be aware that the end of your free speech follows ours very closely.

You would never have an opportunity to be informed that there was ever any such project as “Informations Operations Roadmap” by the Pentagon if not for people who had access to that information and the freedom to report it.

According to the Pentagon, the internet is a weapon and needs to be treated as if it were a weapon in the hands of an enemy.

The enemies of Tyrannical overreach of government have used this “weapon” to great advantage of all people who value liberty… but of course the enemy now realizes their mistake in making this double-edged sword called the internet so accessible and useable to us, their opposition.

As the Pentagon, themselves have said…

“We Must Fight the Net.

DOD [Department of Defense] is building an information-centric force.

Networks are increasingly the operational center of gravity, and the Department must be prepared to fight the net…

DOD’s “Defense in Depth” strategy should operate on the premise that the Department will “fight the net” as it would a weapons system.”

gwu.edu

No doubt, “fighting the net” will be made much easier by the advent of Internet2.

By means of a secondary, controlled internet which requires identity verification and excludes all information which could be adverse to the objectives of the government, the idea is that internet users will gradually be herded onto this new system and away from the old free access internet which will be left in increasing states of disrepair until it’s obsolete.

This will, in the end, be sold to the public as an “upgraded” version of the internet… loaded with bells and whistles and pretty graphics, I’m sure… but devoid of any meaning or usefulness to serious researchers.

Herein lies another challenge for any ambitious computer nerd who has the time, resoursces and guts to fight the beast… start building “Internet Underground”.

There’s no question in my mind that Google will be welcomed with open arms on Internet2… they’ve never made it a very well kept secret that their interests lie much more in bowing and scraping before their government deities than providing any legitimate service to their users.

Just one example of their loyalties on display was the case of Google Street Finder being ordered by the military to immediately remove shots of military bases from the web.

Military officials insisted that this was a security risk, never mind that the shots were taken from a public street… a place any citizen has the right to walk, and to view the base.

Google complied of course… but the same agreeable attitude couldn’t be observed when it came to Street Finder taking shots of a woman sunbathing… they felt less inclined to honor her request to remove the images.

Finally, let’s not forget to give a big “thanks, guy” to Senator (who else) Rockefeller for pushing “Cybersecurity” legislation.

I’m sure we’re all going to feel much safer knowing that the cyber-feds are keeping the cyber-Al-Qaeda from setting off their cyber-bombs and demolishing our chat rooms. Goodness Big Brother..what would we do without you?
