Is WikiLeaks a victim of digital McCarthyism?

Make no mistake there are mirror WikiLeaks sites everywhere.

“WikiLeaks official censorship resistant mirrors, http://wikileaks.ch/mirrors.html, says, ” Wikileaks is currently under heavy attack.  In order to make it impossible to ever fully remove Wikileaks from the Internet, you will find below a list of mirrors of Wikileaks website and CableGate pages.”

It includes the following sites-

Wikileaks is currently mirrored on 208 sites (updated 2010-12-05 19:43 GMT)

Wikileaks is currently mirrored on 355 sites (updated 2010-12-06 00:25 GMT)

Whatever WikiLeaks has to say, it is out there and certainly not restricted.  In the interest of self disclosure we are relying on the N.Y. Times and Fox, CNN and others to decifer the latest 250,000 page dump.  If the U.S. government could stop it, it has sadly failed miserably.  And, apparently the U.S. government could not stop China from an internet attack either, at least according to WikiLeaks.  Meanwhile a teenager in BF Egyptown, Texas has been prosecuted for an illegal song download, while another illegal has crossed into Texas.

Is he a hero? A martyr?  Just a jerk? A rapist of women, a rapist of classified documents? A rapist of freedom? Whom would he be a hero to?  Should he sit in Guantanamo Bay detention until we figure out exactly what he is?  How many others will follow in his footsteps? 

“…It is the corruption of truth, the abandonment of the due process law. It is the use of the big lie and the unfounded accusation against any citizen in the name of Americanism or security. It is the rise to power of the demagogue who lives on untruth; it is the spreading of fear and the destruction of faith in every level of society. ” -Truman, Harry S.

While Assange is not a U.S. Citizen, what if he were?  Would the story unfold the same way?  Why would the U.S. government ask that people not read the released documents?  that is pretty vague to say the least. Does it not give fuel to the fire and encourage government employees and private citizens to read what is forbotten?  Who would have thought a web site could be compared to a book burning?

Would the U.S. government seemingly have pressured Amazon in the U.S. to kick WikiLeaks off of its servers?  What made Amazon, who has sold and hosted other material of controversy, finally cave? What about Paypal who has also eliminated WikiLinks?

Is anyone out there really under the assumption that the donation of a twenty or even a fifty makes a hooting holler of a difference to WikiLeaks?  Those mere dollar donations of less than $100 sure added up for President Obama though, and certainly not subject to many campaign disclosure reports. hummmmmmm.  Is Assange getting money from China, Iran,…?

Follow the money. 

Should we really be anticipatory of the next release of WikiLeaks documents supposidly about Bank of America?  Is there a relationship between Assange, BOA, Rothschild, Rockefeller, and a New World Order? It is afterall only paper, right?  Is there a little Illuminati light to be shed this season of Advent?

The threat to a free Internet is what appears to us as the biggest threat.  The soldier, who reportedly released  the documents in question, has yet to have his day in court.  Have the people and government forgot, “Innocent until proven guilty?”  Were Assange detained or charged on U.S. Soil or even sought for arrest, would not The Constitution that so many have died to uphold, still apply to him?  Do they not apply equally to Guantanamo Bay detainees in a trial?  Ask Eric Holder.  Ask President Obama.

I can not help but be reminded of Larry Claxton Flynt, Jr. of Hustler Magazine fame.  We’ve written before of Flynt’s antics here at  https://ahrcanum.wordpress.com/2009/09/15/larry-flynt-hustlers-in-america/.  We reiterate our thoughts that while Hustler Magazine maybe a personal choice of literature, having Hustler in your library is legal.  The Supreme Court of the United States of America says that Hustler has a right to be there, so who are little old us to say otherwise?  Shouldn’t WikiLeaks, The Huffington Post, The Wall Street Journal, The New York Times be equally afforded the same right to disseminate information?  Should Assange have the same right?

Right or Wrong?

Apparently, The Library of Congress has blocked access to WikiLeaks across its computer systems, including reading rooms, and Columbia University students aspiring for diplomatic careers have been advised not to comment on, or link to, the whistleblower website’s revelations. http://www.thehindu.com/opinion/editorial/article933915.ece

Reading rooms are blocked from discussing WikiLeaks?  How sad a statement on free expression.  Does it lend authenticity to fact or fiction?Without due process, the Library of Congress has blocked a website?  Yes. No!  Is he an information terrorist?  Should he be treated as an enemy combatant?  Perhaps.  Perhaps what he has released is nothing but lies.  To think that the Obama administrations’ best guess at prosecuting Assange so far is a copyright infringement, it is a sad statement to the testimony of fortitude of our President.  Can we not speak of pure espionage?  Did he put lives at risk?  Did he put freedom at risk in the attempt to express his?  How is it wrong to discuss what is now in the public domain in a public setting? 

Is it a fine line between freedom of speech and an outright freedom to speak?  To write? To release?  What if there really was a fire when yelling fire in the movie theatre?  What if there were only a smoking gun? 

Just ask, “Who Killed The Kennedy’s?”  Who killed MaryJo? Was it really you and me?

The controversial Arizona Immigration Law (SB1070)  is set to take effect July 29, 2010, but not before being battered from both sides of the fence. 

The law will see it’s first challenge in the courtroom today where U.S. District Court Judge Susan Bolton will hear a motion to dismiss the lawsuit filed by Phoenix police Officer David Salgado. http://www.azcentral.com/news/election/azelections/articles/2010/07/15/20100715arizona-immigration-law-lawsuit-hearing.html#ixzz0tlciMU99

Similar hearings are scheduled before Bolton on July 22. In the morning, she is scheduled to hear arguments in the lawsuit filed by the American Civil Liberties Union and several other groups. In the afternoon, she will hear arguments in the suit filed by the U.S. Department of Justice.
The DOJ’s lawsuit is based on the preemption doctrine adopted by the Supreme Court under the Constitution’s supremacy clause, which states that certain matters are of such federal character, as opposed to local or state, that only the federal government can act on them.
Voters by a two-to-one margin oppose the U.S. Justice Department’s decision to challenge the legality of Arizona’s new immigration law in federal court.
Can you guess which side of the fence Ahrcanum is on?  We’ve said it before.  If you come to America and wish to stay, we will open our arms, do a background check and give you all the liberty you can handle if you do so legally.  It’s like going to a picnic party and not bringing anything or being invited.  A bad guest.  Don’t let the door hit you on the way out.
Contributions to Gov. Jan Brewer’s special legal defense fund now top $1 million, mostly in website donations of less than $100 pouring in from all over the country. Arizona, California, Texas, and Florida are the states with the most online donors. http://www.csmonitor.com/USA/Justice/2010/0715/Arizona-immigration-law-heads-to-court-with-1.2-million-war-chest
Yesterday, Michigan Attorney General Mike Cox filed a legal brief on behalf of nine states supporting Arizona’s immigration law. The other states were Alabama, Florida, Nebraska, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, South Dakota, Texas and Virginia, as well as the Northern Mariana Islands. Where was Texas and California’s Attorney General?
Arizona, Michigan and every other state have the authority to enforce immigration laws, and it is appalling to see President Obama use taxpayer dollars to stop a state’s efforts to protect its own borders, Cox said in a statement. http://apnews.myway.com/article/20100715/D9GVBRK80.html
The filing by the individual States against the United States can be read
Also, on Wednesday, the conservative Washington, D.C.-based educational foundation Judicial Watch filed a motion to intervene on behalf of SB 1070 sponsor Sen. Russell Pearce, R-Mesa, in the U.S. Department of Justice lawsuit.

It states that “as the author and driving force behind the enactment of SB 1070, Senator Pearce has the right to defend it.”  Pearce called the fight over the law “a legal battle of epic proportions.”

“What happens here in Arizona will impact every state in the country interested in protecting its citizens by enforcing the rule of law,” Pearce said.

Judicial Watch has yet to upload the filing but look for it here-http://www.judicialwatch.org/news/2010/jul/state-senator-russell-pearce-author-arizona-s-sb-1070-seeks-intervene-federal-lawsuit

What happens in Vegas may stay in Vegas.  What happens on July 29th is anyone’s guess.

Thinking of Las Vegas and frivolous government lawsuits, is the John Stagliano obscenity trial.  The case has it’s beginnings at the Vegas porn industry’s biggest annual convention, Adult Entertainment Expo,Vegas in 2007.

Stagliano makes adult movies and the Feds apparently are finding them indecent.  Milk Nymphos and Storm Squirters 2 are the two cited movies in the case for distribution crossing state lines.

What is more indecent is the Judge’s rulings preventing evidence from being admissible.  He will not allow the full viewing of the movie in court!   That is obscene.

Voted Obama? Embarrassed Yet?

Internet Censorship is coming your way.

How embarrassing that this country elected President Obama.  I don’t care for the white part of him or the black part.  Throw the race card right out the window.  I do find it admirable that voters can see past a persons color, and disgraceful that they couldn’t see what Joe The Plumber warned of the socialistic tendencies coming down the pike.  I don’t mean those stupid Recovery Signs down the Turnpike either.

Will Ahrcanum and similar web sites now be black listed by Google and the government new Internet police for saying I disagree with the President?  Should I fire myself for expressing my opinion? Does that constitute an Internet Crime?  http://www.cyberlawenforcement.org/

From day one, President Obama’s campaign was an orchestrated masterful manipulation of the press and continues to this day, as the Administration seems to be working towards an all out government run media including the Internet.  Transparency my ass.

The right to free speech, the communication of ideas and opinions has its history in numerous documents. John Locke established the individual as the unit of value and the bearer of rights to life, liberty, property and the pursuit of happiness. It is supposed to be the role of  Government to protect these rights, not take them away.  The First Amendment to the Constitution states,  “Congress shall make no law… abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press”.

You have to take your chances on the repercussions of having free speech though.  Can’t be yelling “Fire” in a theatre and common decency kind of things.  Helen Thomas broke protocol when sharing her personal views that the Jews in Israel should go home.  In response, she was forced into retirement as a columnist for the Hearst News Service. http://religionclause.blogspot.com/2010/06/helen-thomas-dean-of-white-house-press.html

Gen. Stanley McChrystal, a former black ops leader and commander of US and NATO forces in Afghanistan couldn’t keep his opinion to himself either.  Even prior to the Rolling Stone article put the end to his career, [sic, previous] “remarks earned him a smackdown from the president himself, who summoned the general to a terse private meeting aboard Air Force One. The message to McChrystal seemed clear: Shut the fuck up, and keep a lower profile.” http://www.rollingstone.com/politics/news/17390/119236

McChrystal may have been unimpressed with the commander-in-chief from the start, but the General worked for him. Not always smart to disrespect the boss.  The President on the other hand, is supposed to work for you and I and defend the Constitution, not against us or it. 

Fighting homegrown terrorism by monitoring Internet communications is a civil liberties trade-off the U.S. government must make to beef up national security, the nation’s homeland security chief said Friday. 

As terrorists increasingly recruit U.S. citizens, the government needs to constantly balance Americans’ civil rights and privacy with the need to keep people safe, said Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano. http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2010/06/18/napolitano-internet-monitoring-needed-fight-homegrown-terrorism/

I buy the nation’s security plea, not the censorship Kool-Aid sale. Not withstanding, I still hate referring to America as The Homeland.   Is there some sort of global conspiracy to limit free speech and on-line discussion?  There are Internet censorship bills in Australia, the U.K., and the U.S. with more to come.  Say nothing of the black holes where there is no Internet at all. 

Will America Turn into the Black Hole of The Internet?

 By a 3-2 vote, the FCC on June 16 — under the chairmanship of Julius “Caesar” Genachowski — moved the agency toward the power to regulate the transmission component of broadband Internet service. Genachowski — Obama’s Harvard law classmate — thus sets the table for regulating the Internet under rules that were written for the telephone company in the thirties. http://www.renewamerica.com/columns/vernon/100712

The Anti-Counterfeiting Trade Agreement (ACTA) has received fleeting public attention, yet it has been quietly evolving for a number of years.  On it’s face ACTA is described as a countermeasure directed at the rise of counterfeit goods, medicines and pirated copyright protected material, including “piracy over the Internet”.

If officially ratified, however, ACTA would mark the formation of a major new global legal infrastructure with relation to standards on intellectual property rights enforcement.  It would also see the formation of an international governing body to oversee implementation of the agreement. http://truth11.com/2010/07/12/acta-flagship-of-the-growing-internet-censorship-armada/

Obama Administration regulatory czar Cass Sunstein is on the record in support of the latest in a series of proposals to regulate political speech on the net. 

“The site’s of one point of view agree to provide links to sites of the other point of view. So if you’re reading a conservative magazine, they would provide a link to a liberal site. And vice versa, just to make it easy for people to access to competing views. Or maybe a popup on your screen that would show you an advertisement or maybe even a quick argument for a competing view

If we could get voluntary arrangements in that direction, it would be great and if we can’t get voluntary arrangements maybe Congress should hold hearings about mandates.” http://deathby1000papercuts.com/2010/05/obama-czar-cass-sunstein-internet-mandates-spread-the-link-love/

Government mandates for the Internet?  In his book Democracy and the Problem of Free Speech Sunstein says there is a need to reformulate First Amendment law. And recall Sunstein, ” has a secret aim to push a radical animal-rights agenda in the White House. Sunstein supports outlawing sport hunting, giving animals the legal right to file lawsuits, and using government regulations to phase out meat consumption.   http://www.prweb.com/releases/Cass-Sunstein/Animal-Rights/prweb1868134.htm

No steak dinner, no unrestricted Internet?  Pop up ads for a competing point of view? Rewrite the First Amendment?  Where’s Ted Nugent when you need him?

Further challenging first amendment rights is the DISCLOSE Act under the guise of election reform.  http://www.opencongress.org/bill/111-h5175/show The DISCLOSE Act is a desperate attempt to influence the November elections, and minimize Democrat losses writes http://biggovernment.com/dbossie/2010/07/12/will-senate-democrats-stifle-free-speech/

Discussions, bills and laws like The Fairness Doctrine and Net Neutrality aren’t going away anytime soon.

There is some hope for keeping the First Amendment in tact and further limiting big brother with the Enumerated Powers Act that requires that each bill cite its authority under the Constitution. http://www.opencongress.org/bill/111-s1319/show The sad thing about this bill is that it takes a bill or legislation to remind our elected officials to do something they should have been doing all along- you know, a little something called upholding the Constitution to which they were elected to and swore an oath to support and defend.

Oh that’s right, the President is after all a Constitutional Lawyer, I think.  I’ve never seen his diploma or birth certificate for that matter but numerous times he has made reference that the Constitution does not address social inequities. 

DC Downsizer Michael Mitchell of Alaska compiled this list from Article I of the U.S. Constitution. These are all the powers that the Congress has-

  1. Borrow money
  2. Regulate commerce among the states
  3. Regulate naturalization
  4. Regulate bankruptcies
  5. Coin money
  6. Fix weights and standards
  7. Punish counterfeiters
  8. Establish post offices
  9. Establish post roads
  10. Record patents
  11. Protect copyrights
  12. Create federal courts
  13. Punish pirates
  14. Declare war

Gee, I don’t see government mandate for health care in there.

In case you’ve forgotten what else The Constitution says, here’s a great link at http://www.upinjustice.com/knowyourrights.htm

Based on Constitutionality or a coming to their senses, Democratic governors are already complaining about the Obama administration’s first lawsuit against Arizona’s immigration enforcement law, Attorney General Eric Holder is already planning a second.  When setting one little pinkie toe on U.S. soil, one of the first things you have is the right to remain silent, thanks to the Constitution.

Perhaps President Obama should revisit his use of free speech by talking about things like the BP Oil Spill which he hasn’t bothered to mention publicly since June 22. http://www.whitehouse.gov/the-press-office/remarks-president-after-cabinet-meeting  Among today’s duties he will honor the WNBA champion team.  http://www.whitehouse.gov/the-press-office/president-obama-honor-wnba-champion-phoenix-mercury-white-house.  By the way we are about to begin war games off the Korean Peninsula.  Comment please?

When it comes to governments restricting the Internet I am reminded of George Carlin’s, “Seven Words You Can Never Say on Television”.  Today, I take the opportunity to write:  Shit, Piss, Fuck, Cunt, Cocksucker, Motherfucker, and Tits, just because I still can. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Seven_dirty_words

How’s that for freedom of speech and freedom of religion too? Now I have to go to confession to saying and writing those dirty words.

Updated July 15- The federal appeals court ruled that the FCC agency’s ban on “fleeting expletives” unconstitutional. Great reading at http://reason.com/archives/2010/07/15/the-obsolescence-of-federal-ce/

internet

The SEC and Department of Homeland Security are saying we need a web backup plan in the event the H1N1 Swine Flu Pandemic forces people to stay in their homes to use computers even more than usual for work or play.

Homeland Security Department accused the GAO of having unrealistic expectations of how the Internet could be managed if millions began to telework from home at the same time as bored or sick schoolchildren were playing online, sucking up valuable bandwidth….Private Internet providers might need government authorization to block popular websites, it said, or to reduce residential transmission speeds to make way for commerce.  http://www.reuters.com/article/newsOne/idUSN2620750120091026?pageNumber=1&virtualBrandChannel=0

Are politician looking craft new ways to get more control on the last free media frontier we have? We believe it is essential that the Internet remain unrestricted with an open platform. 365 days a year, 24/7.  President Obama on the other hand has not been quiet about pushing for Internet legislation.

The government wants to make sure everyone has access to the Internet and have set aside $7.2 billion in stimulus dollars for construction.http://www.examiner.com/x-10317-San-Diego-County-Political-Buzz-Examiner~y2009m10d21-Net-Neutrality-enforcement-may-reach-into-your-computer Again with the stimulus dollars.  Private investment and the private sector is what has spurned it’s growth.  As we have been witness to banks and car companies who accept bailout funds, they also accept government control and regulations. 

Last week the FCC begin consideration of the rules that would protect and promote open broadband pipes to the Internet. Over the next several months, an official rule making proceeding will take place, along with public workshops and technical advisory discussions, allowing everyone to provide feedback before the Commission adopts a final set of rules.  The proposed rules can be found here as a pdf http://hraunfoss.fcc.gov/edocs_public/attachmatch/FCC-09-93A1.pdf  We found it interesting that on p. 97  the document quotes Thomas Jefferson, “The course of history shows that as the government grows, liberty decreases.”

Google CEO Eric Schmidt and Verizon Wireless CEO Lowell McAdam showed in a joint blog post that stakeholders can work together with mutual respect to find common ground, even as we acknowledge and defend important policy differences.  http://googlepublicpolicy.blogspot.com/2009/10/finding-common-ground-on-open-internet.html

One significant issue, is that the government apparently uses the same Internet protocols and the same operating systems as the private sector, making cyber security a universal problem as opposed to a governmental problem.  Hackers may find a greater payload in targeting critical infrastructure such as power grids, financial or communication networks or air traffic control systems than in attacking the CIA or the Pentagon.  An attack by an adversary nation, much less a cyber extortionist or terrorist, is not so far-fetched. http://www.latimes.com/news/opinion/commentary/la-oe-zirin14-2009oct14,0,603775.story 

 internet2usamap2

The federally funded Next Generation Internet (NGI) project (http://www.ngi.gov/) exists parallel to and complementary with Internet2, http://www.internet2.edu/ We have trouble believing that America’s nuclear weapons arsenal operate on the standard net. Internet2 is not available to the general public, even though our taxpayer dollars support it.  More about that here https://ahrcanum.wordpress.com/2009/07/15/internet-censorship-shocking-treatment-of-taxpayer/ The speed of information-sharing network on Internet2 is now 100 Gbit!

Thomas has the draft of the Rockefeller Cybersecurity Act S 773 here,  http://thomas.loc.gov/cgi-bin/query/z?c111:S.773.  It  gives the president powers to “declare a cybersecurity emergency” and shut down or limit Internet traffic in any “critical” information network “in the interest of national security.”  More of our previous thoughts here https://ahrcanum.wordpress.com/2009/08/29/obama-internet-controcybersecurity/

The proposed rules claim that Cisco’s built Internet routers have over 28.1 million lines of code- does anyone realistically foresee the government being able to regulated something so large?  Are attacks of the Swine Flu more common than cyber security breaches?  We we do know that the nation has done a pretty miserable job coordinating it’s response to past emergencies as evidenced by Hurricane Katrina, the financial bailouts, and now the H1N1 Swine Flu Pandemic.  If big brother takes over the Internet, the last bastion of freedom of speech in what is left of our democracy, could be gone.

Ship-Probo-Koala-001

(Update below) When freedom of the press is compromised in the New World Order, it is nothing less than another example of  government having control over it’s population.   In yet another instance:

The Guardian has been prevented from reporting parliamentary proceedings on legal grounds which appear to call into question privileges guaranteeing free speech established under the 1688 Bill of Rights.

The Guardian is also forbidden from telling its readers why the paper is prevented – for the first time in memory – from reporting parliament. Legal obstacles, which cannot be identified, involve proceedings, which cannot be mentioned, on behalf of a client who must remain secret.

The only fact the Guardian can report is that the case involves the London solicitors Carter-Ruck, who specialise in suing the media for clients, who include individuals or global corporations. ( emphasis mine)

Gagged. Don’t stop the presses.  Last month,  the same reporter David Leigh wrote,  How the UK Oil Company Trafigura tried to cover up an Africa Pollution Disasterhttp://www.guardian.co.uk/world/2009/sep/16/trafigura-oil-ivory-coast

The British oil trader Trafigura has offered to pay out in a historic damages claim from 31,000 Africans injured by the dumping of toxic waste in one of the worst pollution disasters in recent history, the Guardian can reveal.

The compensation deal for the victims of toxic oil waste dumping in west Africa – likely to be confirmed imminently – means the full extent of attempts to cover up what really happened can be spelled out for the first time. They have until now denied the compensation claims, and their lawyers repeatedly threatened anyone worldwide who sought to contradict their version. They launched a libel case against BBC Newsnight, forced a “correction” from the Times, demanded the Guardian deleted articles, and yesterday tried to gag  journalists in the Netherlands and Norway with legal threats.

Supporting his claim, Leigh provided internal emails from Trafigura’s company operatives around the world, which can be seen here- http://www.guardian.co.uk/world/2009/sep/16/trafigura-email-files-read .  We do ask if  these company’s internal documents are proprietary or open as court documents?

The  e-mails “give a blow-by-blow account of the oil trading firm’s decision to buy gasoline from the Mexican state refinery PMI via a US oil terminal at Brownsville, and then process it at sea on a chartered tanker, the Probo Koala, using “caustic washing”.

Since the newspaper is under a gag order, we don’t know for sure if the two are related.  We surmise that there is enough preponderance of evidence that they are.  While the abuses allegedly committed by Tragifura come to light, it is not enlightening to know that a “democratic” Parliament has enabled itself,  ignoring laws to turn it’s back on freedom of the press.

“The editor, Alan Rusbridger, said: “The media laws in this country increasingly place newspapers in a Kafkaesque world in which we cannot tell the public anything about information which is being suppressed, nor the proceedings which suppress it. It is doubly menacing when those restraints include the reporting of parliament itself.”

The gag order comes on the heels of Italy’s freedom press rally where thousand’s gathered  protest in Rome’s central Piazza del Popolo against Silvio Berlusconi, Italy’s prime minister.  Berlusconi, owns three of Italy’s seven free-to-air TV channels, has also urged businessmen to stop placing ads in newspapers and magazines that attack him.

His critics say he also exerts considerable influence over state television RAI. http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/europe/8289166.stm More commentary comes from http://www.guardian.co.uk/commentisfree/libertycentral/2009/oct/10/italy-press-freedom-berlusconi

The Index Censorship does and excellent job at tracking freedom of the press here http://www.indexoncensorship.org/2009/10/press-barred-from-reporting-parliamentary-question/.

cartoon_Malaisie_small_size-2

In yet another example of censorship, the Malaysia government has decided to prosecute the company that published the new cartoon magazine Gedung Kartun for not having a permit. The interior ministry said Zunar’s company, Sepakat Efektif, would be prosecuted under section 5 (2) (b) of the Printing Presses and Publication Act 1984 for “publication without a licence.” As its owner, Zunar faces up to three years in prison and a fine of up to 20 million ringgits.  Guess who issues the license?  The Malaysian government. http://www.rsf.org/spip.php?page=article&id_article=34658

Don’t for one minute think it doesn’t happen in America. Recall the brew ha ha over Ayers and the Obama’s hanging out at a dinner for Rashid Khalidi?  The LA Times refused to release the tape and there we rewards issued for it, including one from Dune Capital.  https://ahrcanum.wordpress.com/2008/12/13/the-blago-rezko-and-obama-3-ring-circus/ Censored information or witheld information protecting now President Barack Obama?  We have never seen the tape.  Have you seen this one from Sean Hannity and Fox discussing Obama at Rashid Khalidi’s house, toasting the former PLO press director while anti-Israel comments fly about the room?

On September 25, 2009 at a forum, debate and roundtable at Columbia University “UNRWA historical performance in a changing context”  – “Rashid Khalidi of Columbia University also made an appearance as the debate’s moderator—an indication of the spectrum of opinions present—deviating from his role as an objective overseer only to reiterate his colleagues’ anti-Israel and anti-Western diatribes.” http://www.campus-watch.org/article/id/8525.

Rashid Khalidi continues to make appearances and thanks some freedom of the press his views remain public. 

Democracy is freedom of the press.   The World Press Freedom Index that Reporters Without Borders compiles every year and from the 2008 edition can be found here at http://www.rsf.org/Only-peace-protects-freedoms-in.html.

John Perry Newsmax wrote an article that suggested a military coup to overthrow President Obama was a real possibility. 

The article has since disappeared from the Newsmax site but here it is :

Obama Risks a Domestic Military ‘Intervention’

Tuesday, September 29, 2009 10:35 AMBy: John L. Perry
There is a remote, although gaining, possibility America’s military will intervene as a last resort to resolve the “Obama problem.” Don’t dismiss it as unrealistic. America isn’t the Third World. If a military coup does occur here it will be civilized. That it has never happened doesn’t mean it wont. Describing what may be afoot is not to advocate it. So, view the following through military eyes:

 Officers swear to “support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic.” Unlike enlisted personnel, they do not swear to “obey the orders of the president of the United States.”

  • Top military officers can see the Constitution they are sworn to defend being trampled as American institutions and enterprises are nationalized.
  •  They can see that Americans are increasingly alarmed that this nation, under President Barack Obama, may not even be recognizable as America by the 2012 election, in which he will surely seek continuation in office.
  •  They can see that the economy — ravaged by deficits, taxes, unemployment, and impending inflation — is financially reliant on foreign lender governments.
  •  They can see this president waging undeclared war on the intelligence community, without whose rigorous and independent functions the armed services are rendered blind in an ever-more hostile world overseas and at home.
  •  They can see the dismantling of defenses against missiles targeted at this nation by avowed enemies, even as America’s troop strength is allowed to sag.
  •  They can see the horror of major warfare erupting simultaneously in two, and possibly three, far-flung theaters before America can react in time.
  •  They can see the nation’s safety and their own military establishments and honor placed in jeopardy as never before.
  •  So, if you are one of those observant military professionals, what do you do?Wait until this president bungles into losing the war in Afghanistan, and Pakistan’s arsenal of nuclear bombs falls into the hands of militant Islam?

    Wait until Israel is forced to launch air strikes on Iran’s nuclear-bomb plants, and the Middle East explodes, destabilizing or subjugating the Free World?

    What happens if the generals Obama sent to win the Afghan war are told by this president (who now says, “I’m not interested in victory”) that they will be denied troops they must have to win? Do they follow orders they cannot carry out, consistent with their oath of duty? Do they resign en masse?

    Or do they soldier on, hoping the 2010 congressional elections will reverse the situation? Do they dare gamble the national survival on such political whims?

    Anyone who imagines that those thoughts are not weighing heavily on the intellect and conscience of America’s military leadership is lost in a fool’s fog.

  • Will the day come when patriotic general and flag officers sit down with the president, or with those who control him, and work out the national equivalent of a “family intervention,” with some form of limited, shared responsibility?Imagine a bloodless coup to restore and defend the Constitution through an interim administration that would do the serious business of governing and defending the nation. Skilled, military-trained, nation-builders would replace accountability-challenged, radical-left commissars. Having bonded with his twin teleprompters, the president would be detailed for ceremonial speech-making.

    Military intervention is what Obama’s exponentially accelerating agenda for “fundamental change” toward a Marxist state is inviting upon America. A coup is not an ideal option, but Obama’s radical ideal is not acceptable or reversible.

    Unthinkable? Then think up an alternative, non-violent solution to the Obama problem. Just don’t shrug and say, “We can always worry about that later.”

     In the 2008 election, that was the wistful, self-indulgent, indifferent reliance on abnegation of personal responsibility that has sunk the nation into this morass.

    I clearly understand the intent of the author is to say he and many members of the military do not agree with President Obama’s policies and seek an alternative to the direction our country is heading.  So do a lot of people.  While The President’s poll numbers are slipping, to suggest a domestic military intervention could happen is wrong- but it is the author’s opinion. 

    Should the article have been removed? 

    I don’t think so. 

    While I defend the office of President and disagree with his politics, he is The Commander and Chief of the greatest nation on earth and is still deserving of the respect of the office. 

    Perry wrote “So, if you are one of those observant military professionals, what do you do?”  We say, you take orders and do as you are told. Period.  You do not attempt to overthrow government and oust President Obama- that is the voters job!   Suggesting an uprising is degrading to the military personnel who fight the current wars and is equally offensive to veterans. 

    You think those soldiers who went to Vietnam totally agreed with American policy at the time? 

    The article should stand as a reminder to freedom of speech and Perry’s opinion. Removing it is censorship and curtailing freedom of the press.  I don’t have to agree or disagree, but I can sure as $hit flip to a new web site in a matter of seconds.

    I’d like to turn off health care reform, ACORN, the Olympic endeavor and other Obama propaganda with a wave of the wand (and Katie Couric too), instead we rant about politics and life here,  just like Perry does on Newsmax.  While we do not suggest a military over throw, we also hope no one decides to remove and delete our posts either.

    How noble to not have your brain shocked when using the Internet.

    Chinese media reported that a clinic in the eastern Chinese province of Shandong had been treating teenagers suffering from Internet addiction with shock treatment. Yang Yongxin, a doctor of the clinic, reportedly used a current of 1-5 milliamperes on the young patients and described the treatment as “therapy to clear the mind” which he claimed would not cause brain damage.  http://www.sinolinx.com/frame/?url=http://www.chinatechnews.com/2009/07/15/10144-ministry-of-health-halts-electric-shock-treatment-for-internet-addiction-in-china/

    Turn to Cass Sunstein, President Obama’s choice to head the White House Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs- things like the Internet and blogs.

    Prison Planet http://www.prisonplanet.com/cass-sunsteins-despicable-ideas-on-regulating-the-internet.html  says “Sunstein’s book is a blueprint for online censorship as he wants to hold blogs and web hosting services accountable for the remarks of commenters on websites while altering libel laws to make it easier to sue for spreading “rumors.”

    Rep. Linda T. Sanchez has this bill http://thomas.loc.gov/cgi-bin/query/z?c111:H.R.1966 pending that says, “`Sec. 881. Cyberbullying. (a) Whoever transmits in interstate or foreign commerce any communication, with the intent to coerce, intimidate, harass, or cause substantial emotional distress to a person, using electronic means to support severe, repeated, and hostile behavior, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than two years, or both.`(b) As used in this section-(1) the term `communication’ means the electronic transmission, between or among points specified by the user, of information of the user’s choosing, without change in the form or content of the information as sent and received; and(2) the term `electronic means’ means any equipment dependent on electrical power to access an information service, including email, instant messaging, blogs, websites, telephones, and text messages.’

    If one were to comment on your blog or call text that you are a butt head and I disagree with you, this wording could be interpreted as causing severe distress to said butt head and he/she  could sue.  WTF is wrong with people?  WAKE T F UP.

    In an attempt to again reduce freedom of speech, I wonder if Obama has plans to torture and do a little shock and awe on internet users in the USA?  With the coming of Internet 2, 3, 4, 5 etc we are already restricted. The federally funded Next Generation Internet (NGI) project (http://www.ngi.gov/) exists parallel to and complementary with Internet2.

    “The very high performance Backbone Network Service (vBNS) “is a network that will connect around one-hundred research institutions – and already links five NSF supercomputer centers – at 2.4 gigabits per second by the year 2000.” The vBNS has been around since 1995. Gigabits per second (G/bps)” refers to a billion bits (or ten to the ninth power – 1,000,000,000 – bits of information) when used to describe data transfer rates,” and these are carried over GigaPoPs,…blah blah. http://findarticles.com/p/articles/mi_m0FWE/is_11_3/ai_57785870/

    “Eventually, these applications will be available to non-members, though estimates of when that will take place vary from one to many years.” 

    Translation- Internet2 is filled with bits of information that the common internet user does not have access to.  I am just betting some of those research institutions get some of our federal tax dollars and probably stimulus dollars. National Security sites aside, if  U.S. tax dollars are paying for a full upload of the Library of Congress, then U.S. taxpayers should have full acess.

    Shocking indeed.
