- Meet CISA – Dianne Feinstein’s Latest Attack on Privacy, Civil Liberties and the Internet (Liberty, Blitzkrieg, July 15, 2014):

There’s not much good you can count on Congress to accomplish, but when it comes to introducing and passing oligarch protecting, civil liberties destroying legislation, our “representatives” are absolutely relentless in their determination. Unsurprisingly, the only “distinctly native American criminal class,” as Mark Twain described Congress, is at it again when it comes to institutionalizing spying and attempting a legal run around the Bill of Rights.

One thing that has become crystal clear since the Edward Snowden revelations, is that much of Congress has no problem at all with unconstitutional spying. Rather, they are primarily upset it was exposed and are dead set on making sure no other whistleblower can ever do the same. Enter CISA, or The Cybersecurity Information Sharing Act.

I’ve spent much of today reading about the bill, and have compiled what I think are the most astute observations. First, from the ACLU: Continue reading »

- Obama adm refuses to pursue criminal investigation of CIA spying on Senate staffers (RT, July 10, 2014):

The Department of Justice has officially ended its criminal probe concerning allegations of spying and document stealing involving the United States Senate and the Central Intelligence Agency.

On Thursday this week, a DOJ spokesperson confirmed to McClatchy that the Justice Dept. won’t pursue any further its investigation into whether Senate Intelligence Committee staffers took classified documents from a secure facility, nor a related probe concerning allegations that the CIA spied on those same congressional workers.

- FBI Raids Home of Dangerous Doomsday Prepper: Agents Find Legally Owned Firearms, Barrels of Food (SHFT Plan, June 22, 2014):

The Federal Bureau of Investigation and other law enforcement agencies blasted alerts all over the country earlier this week advising Americans to be on the lookout for ‘Doomsday Prepper’ Martin Winters, who police say was stockpiling over fifty “high powered” rifles, deadly booby traps and food in preparation for an “end times” event. Neighbors interviewed by mainstream news were terrified about the allegations, leaving some with the impression that Winters was “crazy” because he allegedly claimed that he would kill federal agents if necessary.

While SWAT officials indicated the likelihood that they would have to engage Winters in a firefight was high, friends and family suggested otherwise, saying that Winters may have had views different from most people but insisting that he is a “good guy” who wouldn’t hurt others unless it was necessary to do so in self defense.

- Netanyahu Orders Israel Army To Prepare For Possible Military Strike Against Iran In 2014

My commentary:

(First my apoogies for not proofreading my comment. Hope you can nevertheless understand what I want to tell you.)

Unlike stated in the video the elitists do have plans for WW3.

Keep in mind that I do not want you to get scared.

I just want to help you to get prepared spiritually, mentally and physically.

That’s all.

I know for a fact that … “life is an echo, what you send out comes back”.

And so I better be very careful what I am telling you.

Does WW3 really have to happen?

NO!

The question really is:

Will we allow it to happen???

( … like we have allowed the Patriot Act, the NDAA, all those (NWO) executive orders, GMOs, vaccines, water fluoridation, chemtrails, depleted uranium & genocide, food additives like Aspartame & MSG, Fukushima, Iraq, Afghanistan, Libya, Syria, deficit spending, quantitative easing and the greatest bank robbery in world history.)

If your answer to that question is that we will probably allow WW3 to happen, then I suggest you better prepare.

Many seers have seen very similar WW3 scenarios and the reason for that is that WW III is planned, which could cause all those normally infinite future timelines to collapse into a predictable future:

When you see civil war breaking out simultaneously in Germany, France and Italy (probably because of the financial/economic collapse), then we are getting very close to the beginning of WW3 as it has been predicted.

If you see Pope Francis (= Petrus Romanus) fleeing the Vatican and Italy, then the start of WW3 is very close.

Right before or better immediately before the outbreak of WW3 (by then it is too late to prepare yourself if you haven’t done so yet) there will be an assassination taking place of up to 3 people in leading positions (Could be Putin, Obama or …).

(Probably by then NATO has provoked the Russians ‘enough’, because then …)

The next thing those seers saw were Russian tanks running all over Europe, destroying everything in their path. 

The big fight will take place in Germany.

The Russians will be stopped and defeated (… probably with the help of a third power coming (back) right out of the Inner Earth?).

The beginning of the real earth changes will also put a sudden end to the fighting.

Shortly after the fighting has stopped the real earth changes will take place.

3 days of darkness are coming (asteroid impacts?), where you shouldn’t leave the house and better be in the safest and airtight place that you know of and have available to you.

Don’t go outside, don’t open the windows as the air outside will be deadly.

Water and food stored in safe rooms (metal shielded) should be safe, otherwise all food and water that is not stored in sealed metal containers will turn bad.

(Living near the ocean and at sea level is not the place you want to be. Also living next to steep mountansides is not a good idea.)

Why do I give credence to those seers?

Alois Irlmaier for example clearly foresaw smartphones and drones in a time when they did not exist.

He foresaw rising inflation, hyperinflation, the people getting taxed into oblivion and the collapse of the euro, when he couldn’t even possibly know that the euro was planned.

I myself have seen the future several times as it came to pass. So I know that it is possible to do these things.

One of my best friends grew up as a young child with a real master who taught his parents (his father being a bank manager!) and some other people. Among them several medical doctors.

A real master?

After my friends mother had a full abortion of her sixth child this master said that she has put the child back into the womb, because the child belongs to the family and the family belongs to this child.

The next months went by and my friends mum wasn’t sure if she really was pregnant.

Then at a birthday party that master was the one who felt the labour pains and sent my friends mum to the hospital.

Where she gave birth to a healthy girl.

This master could heal the sick instantly (but she also said in some cases that the disease was due to Karma and told them when it will go away and it did) and could manifest out of thin air.

Whenever she needed money she pulled a brandnew dollar note out of her pocket.

These are just some of so many, many stories that I’ve been told.

Here is why this is important …

Many, many years ago this master predicted that after the earth changes you can choose your land wherever you want to (because there are obviously not many humans left).

As young children she showed my friend and his brothers & sisters ‘her friends’ that are here to help us (unlike the ones our governments are currently dealing with) and he remembers that she took them outside during a starry night and the stars were moving like they were riding in a rollercoaster. She told them that this are UFO’s. My friends dad (the bank manager!) saw one of these UFOs landing in close proximity.

When studying acupuncture in China I came to know my good friend (from the other side of the planet) and got told all these wonderful stories from him and later also from his entire family.

Having already experienced some tiny, tiny miracles (in comparison) myself, I had no reason to doubt him, especially because there were several stories that pointed to her being the real deal.

When her students started getting attached to her she warned them, but when they did not listen she left them.

A real master will never allow people getting to attached to him, or even start to worship him, as he only wants to show them the way, helping to speed up their spiritual growth.

If then the students become too attached to the teacher the whole purpose for the master being there in the first place is lost …

… and so he has to go. Usually that’s the beginning of a new religion. When the truth is getting lost religion appears.

If all hell breaks loose and  you don’t know where to go and turn to, go inside and connect yourself to the source, the creator, God, your inner self or whatever you may want to call it.

Know you are protected, know you are eternal.

I do not pretend to know what will happen and when, but this master said that it will come like a thief in the night.

Hopefully we can find ways to avoid WW3 and to minimize the earth changes.

If you think all of this is comlete BS then why have the elitists built the Doomsday Seed Vault?

Meet The “Minerva Research Initiative” – The Pentagon’s Preparation For “Mass Civil Breakdown” (ZeroHedge, June 14, 2014):

About a month ago we showed photos of the Chinese police engaged in a drill designed to crush a “working class insurrection”, in which the police did precisely what would be required to end a middle class rebellion. It made us wonder: what does China know that the US doesn’t. As it turns out, nothing.

Because long before China was practicing counter-riot ops using rubber bullets, all the way back in 2008 the US Department of Defense was conducting studies on the dynamics of civil unrest, and how the US military might best respond. The name of the project: “Minerva Research Initiative” and its role is to ” “improve DoD’s basic understanding of the social, cultural, behavioral and political forces that shape regions of the world of strategic importance to the U.S.Continue reading »

Flashback:

- BOSTON: This Is What Martial Law In The U.S. Looks Like: Americans Ordered Out Of Homes At Gunpoint By SWAT Teams (Videos & Photos)

A significant portion of the billions of rounds of ammo purchased by Homeland Security are hollow point rounds.

Under the Geneva convention, hollow points are illegal to use in war, because they cause far greater tissue damage.

And so those hollow points can and will only be used domestically, inside the United States, in the coming civil war.

Homeland Security has enough ammo for (at least) a ’24-Year Iraq War’.


How Obama administration arms police to the teeth with battlefield weapons

- Revealed: How Obama administration arms police to the teeth with battlefield weapons (RT, June 10, 2014):

The Pentagon has an awful lot of leftovers, but luckily for law enforcement agencies across the United States they aren’t going to waste.

Millions of dollars’ worth of military gear is distributed to local police forces on an annual basis, and these regular exchanges are occurring from coast to coast in towns and cities that are hardly considered epicenters of violent crime, let alone on par with the foreign warzones where these hand-me-downs — machine guns, armored cars and other made-for-battle items — were originally intended to be used.

Over the weekend, the New York Times took a look at some staggering statistics concerning a Congress-created military-transfer program in which items in the Department of Defense’s massive inventory are routinely supplied to small-town police departments for free. Continue reading »

Across America, Police Departments Are Quietly Preparing For War (ZeroHedge, June 9, 2014):

At first blush, the title of this post could be perceived as somewhat hyperbolic by those who still have an impression of America’s police departments as bastions of safety, designed “to protect and to serve” the population of the “land of the free.” However, said impression would be promptly washed away upon reading an article in today’s NYT which citing Pentagon data, reveals that under the Obama administration, “police departments have received tens of thousands of machine guns; nearly 200,000 ammunition magazines; thousands of pieces of camouflage and night-vision equipment; and hundreds of silencers, armored cars and aircraft.

Which begs the question: just who is America’s police force, and by extension the Obama administration, which is behind this quiet militarization of local police forces with weapons that would normally be seen in a warzone, preparing for war against? Continue reading »

- The City Where Blacks Suffer Under ‘Stop and Frisk on Steroids’ (The Atlantic, May 30, 2014):

Police abuses in Miami Gardens, Florida, are staggering, but few Americans seem to care.

Last year, police in Miami Gardens, Florida briefly made headlines after surveillance video captured their harassment of a black clerk at a convenience store. They stopped and questioned the man, Earl Sampson, a ludicrous 258 times. On 62 occasions, they arrested him for trespassing at his place of employment, a pattern of abuse that confounded his employer, the store’s owner. After the Miami Heraldexposed this story, it made national headlines at numerous journalistic outlets, then quickly faded into obscurity at the end of one news cycle. The scope of the abuse taking place in the police department remained unknown. The vast majority of outlets that covered the story cared too little to follow up.

Now evidence of staggering citywide abuse has come to light. Continue reading »

- New Massive Federal Database to Hold Financial Information on Hundreds of Millions of Americans (Liberty Blitzkrieg, May 30, 2014):

The war on privacy continues unabated, as the U.S. government continues to prove time and time again that it views the citizenry as a bunch of cattle to be branded, herded and dealt with at will. It doesn’t seem to bother anyone in the establishment that the public has lost all faith in institutions and so-called “authority” (a concept which I do not believe in to begin with). The evidence of a growing number of Orwellian databases being created has been available for quite some time. Most recently, I covered this topic in the following articles:

FBI Plans to Have 52 Million Photos in Facial Recognition Database by 2015

Guess What’s Hidden in the Immigration Bill? A National Biometric Database for Citizens

- 16 Reasons Why the United States is Going to Hell in a Handbasket (The Survivalist Blog, May 14, 2014):

A couple of weeks a go after expressing an urgency to put our preps into high-gear, several readers asked why that I felt so strongly, about it, and why I felt the “the end” was getting close. I think that is a good and reasonable question, so I decided to do a write up, and offer an explanation. As you can see, I don’t think any one problem or event will cause the collapse of the American empire, but a number of separate but interlocking events and issues.

Another point to consider is that the U.S. government has the resources, and inside information that would allow them to foretell when a major disaster or complete collapse is coming and they have been prepping and building underground bunkers on a mass scale and despite the fact our tax dollars are being used to build those bunkers we are not invited.

- Intelligence employees, current and past, barred from citing news leaks (Ars Technica, May 9, 2014):

Order comes amid steady stream of disclosures from NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden

The Obama administration is barring current employees and contractors, as well as former workers at the Office of the Director of National Intelligence from addressing leaked media material.

The revelation of the edict, first disclosed by Secrecy News, means that those working for the agency that supervises the nation’s 17 spy organizations cannot mention any leaked material in speeches, opinion pieces, research papers, or books. It does not even matter whether the material is classified, according to the edict from the office run by James Clapper, the director of national intelligence.

Citing leaked material is prohibited, according to the new “pre-publication review policy,” (PDF) because it “can confirm the validity of an unauthorized disclosure and cause further harm to national security.”

- FEC Chairman Lee E. Goodman Warns of Forthcoming Government Media Censorship (Liberty Blitzkrieg, May 8, 2014):

When I first read this story I wasn’t sure whether to highlight it or not. While the claims made by Federal Elections Committee (FEC) Chairman Lee E. Goodman are extraordinarily frightening, sometimes people with strong partisan leanings can exaggerate threats and so I like to be careful. I’m not certain if this is the case with Mr. Goodman, but since it is his word against other folks at the FEC and I don’t work there, it’s hard to know what the true state of affairs is.

Nevertheless, the fact that Ajit Pai, a commissioner at the FCC, recently warned in a Wall Street Journal editorial of government plans to “monitor” media organizations, makes me concerned enough to post on it. I highlighted the Ajit Pai editorial back in February in my post: The Obama Administration Plans to Embed “Government Researchers” to Monitor Media Organizations.

Pulitzer prize winning reporter Chris Hedges – along with journalist Naomi Wolf, Pentagon Papers whistleblower Daniel Ellsberg, activist Tangerine Bolen and others – sued the government to join the NDAA’s allowance of the indefinite detention of Americans.

The government refused to promise that journalists like Hedges won’t be thrown in a dungeon for the rest of their lives without any right to talk to a judge.

The United States pretends to be a home of freedom and democracy. In fact, the US is rapidly degenerating into a police state and a worse dystopia than George Orwell imagined in his book, 1984.

John W. Whitehead describes below the prison that is being constructed for all of us. This prison is the work of many of our fellow citizens including scientists and entrepreneurs who have gained fame and fortune creating a prison for mankind. What were they thinking as they threw their energy and their lives into constructing a police state dystopia?

Secret documents newly disclosed by the German news magazine Der Spiegel on Saturday shed more light on how aggressively the National Security Agency and its British counterpart have targeted Germany for surveillance.

A series of classified files from the archive provided to reporters by NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden, also seen by The Intercept, reveal that the NSA appears to have included Merkel in a surveillance database alongside more than 100 others foreign leaders. The documents also confirm for the first time that, in March 2013, the NSA obtained a top-secret court order against Germany as part of U.S. government efforts to monitor communications related to the country. Meanwhile, the British spy agency Government Communications Headquarters targeted three German companies in a clandestine operation that involved infiltrating the companies’ computer servers and eavesdropping on the communications of their staff.

- Feds Beg Supreme Court to Let Them Search Phones Without a Warrant (Wired, April 23, 2014):

American law enforcement has long advocated for universal “kill switches” in cellphones to cut down on mobile device thefts. Now the Department of Justice argues that the same remote locking and data-wiping technology represents a threat to police investigations–one that means they should be free to search phones without a warrant.

In a brief filed to the U.S. Supreme Court yesterday in the case of alleged Boston drug dealer Brima Wurie, the Justice Department argues that police should be free to warrantlessly search cellphones taken from suspects immediately at the time of arrest, rather than risk letting the suspect or his associates lock or remotely wipe the phone before it can be searched.

The FCC Wants To Break The Internet

- Unless Defeated, New FCC Rules Will Put ‘Stake in Internet’s Heart’ (Common Dreams, April 24, 2014):

Critics of the new rules say that this could be the moment the internet as we know it will die if the people do not rise to its defense

Defenders of an open, innovative and fair internet are up in arms Thursday after learning the Federal Communications Commission is about to issue new rule proposals that will kill the online principle known as “net neutrality.”

The death of net neutrality—which has governed the equal treatment of content since the internet was created—will create, say critics, a tiered internet that allows major internet service providers like Comcast and Verizon to cut special and lucrative deals with content providers who can afford to pay for special “fast lanes.” The result will be an internet that will incentivize slower traffic by ISPs and the creation of privatized, corporate-controlled “toll-roads” that will come to dominate a once fair and free environment.

“If it goes forward, this capitulation will represent Washington at its worst.”
—Todd O’Boyle, Common Cause

As reported by variousoutlets, the  new rules have been circulated by FCC chairman Tom Wheeler to the other members of the commission and will be officially announced on Thursday.

“With this proposal, the FCC is aiding and abetting the largest ISPs in their efforts to destroy the open Internet,” said Craig Aaron, president of the media advocacy group Free Press. “Giving ISPs the green light to implement pay-for-priority schemes will be a disaster for startups, nonprofits and everyday Internet users who cannot afford these unnecessary tolls. These users will all be pushed onto the Internet dirt road, while deep pocketed Internet companies enjoy the benefits of the newly created fast lanes.”

Chairman Wheeler defended the new proposals and denied the rule changes were an attack on the open internet, but Aaron rejected those claims and said that trying to argue these new rules protect net neutrality is an insult.

“This is not Net Neutrality,” he stated. “It’s an insult to those who care about preserving the open Internet to pretend otherwise. The FCC had an opportunity to reverse its failures and pursue real Net Neutrality by reclassifying broadband under the law. Instead, in a moment of political cowardice and extreme shortsightedness, it has chosen this convoluted path that won’t protect Internet users.”

“Everyday users will all be pushed onto the Internet dirt road, while deep pocketed Internet companies enjoy the benefits of the newly created fast lanes.”
—Craig Aaron, Free Press

Those who have fought hardest to protect the idea of a free and equal digital playing field for all users, however, said Wheeler’s claims don’t pass the laugh test and rebuked the Chairman’s proposals in the strongest possible terms.

“If it goes forward, this capitulation will represent Washington at its worst,” Todd O’Boyle, program director of Common Cause’s Media and Democracy Reform Initiative, told the New York Times. “Americans were promised, and deserve, an Internet that is free of toll roads, fast lanes and censorship — corporate or governmental.”

And speaking with Time magazine, Lauren Weinsten, a veteran tech-policy expert and prominent Net-neutrality advocate, said: “This is a stake in the heart for Internet openness.”

She continued: “The nation’s largest Internet service providers have hit the ultimate jackpot. These companies keep secret all of the information needed to evaluate whether violations of Internet openness have occurred, and because the FCC moves so slowly, by the time it acts, a company that’s been victimized could be out of business.”

And Free Press’ Aaron put particular emphasis on the perverse incentives the new rules would create, explaining:

“This is a stake in the heart for Internet openness.” 
—Lauren Weinsten, tech expert

The FCC apparently doesn’t realize the dangerous incentives these rules would create. The routing of data on the Internet is a zero-sum game. Unless there is continual congestion, no website would pay for priority treatment. This means the FCC’s proposed rules will actually produce a strong incentive for ISPs to create congestion through artificial scarcity. Not only would this outcome run counter to the FCC’s broader goals, it actually undermines the so-called Section 706 legal basis for these rules.

This proposal is short-sighted and should be strenuously opposed by the broader Internet community — including millions of Americans who have urged Chairman Wheeler and his predecessors to safeguard the open Internet. The only parties cheering this idea on will be the largest ISPs who stand to profit from discrimination. We urge Chairman Wheeler’s colleagues not to support this item as currently drafted and demand nothing less than real Net Neutrality.

Both Common Cause and Free Press have already posted petitions on their sites where concerned citizens can voice their opposition and join the fight to oppose the FCC’s new rules.

The Free Press petition states, in part:

People everywhere understand that the Internet is a crucial driver of free speech, innovation, education, economic growth, creativity and so much more. They demand real Net Neutrality rules that protect Internet users from corporate abuse.

But the Federal Communications Commission is proposing rules that would kill — rather than protect — Net Neutrality and allow rampant discrimination online.

Under these rules, telecom giants like AT&T, Comcast and Verizon would be able to pick winners and losers online and discriminate against online content and applications. And no one could do anything about it.

We must stop the FCC from moving forward with these rules, which would give the green light to ISPs eager to crush Net Neutrality.

The agency can preserve Net Neutrality only by designating broadband as a telecommunications service under the law. Anything else is an attack on our rights to connect and communicate.

Listen to the interview here:

- Exclusive: Sources Inside The BLM and Las Vegas Metro Say Feds Are Planning A Raid On Bundy Home (Benn Swann, April 14, 2014):

Bunkerville, NEVADA, April 14, 2014– As reported yesterday, hundreds of federal agents are still at the Bundy Ranch and the area continues its status as a no-fly zone. Despite major media reports that the Nevada Bureau of Land Management is retreating, the remaining activity that still surrounds the ranch illustrates a different scenario.
