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/

As Arizona’s immigration policy does what the federal government won’t, The Department of Homeland Security has now declared a Terror Alert along the Mexico U.S. border.

The Department of Homeland Security is alerting Texas authorities to be on the lookout for a suspected member of the Somalia-based Al Shabaab terrorist group who might be attempting to travel to the U.S. through Mexico, a security expert who has seen the memo tells FOXNews.com. http://www.foxnews.com/us/2010/05/26/terror-alert-mexican-border/

It is akin to an all points bulletin and searching for a needle in a haystack.  While your looking for terrorists would you mind stopping a few of those Mexican illegal immigrants who are still flocking to border states like Arizona and Texas. Obama and other elected officials have publicly admitted to not reading the bill, yet cry wolf and ignore the problems.

An administration official confirmed to Fox News that Obama plans to deploy the National Guard troops as needed.  Mr. President, with all due respect, “as needed” would be right the frig now.  Sending some 1,200 troops is a flea on a camel’s ass- insignificant.

Sen. Jon Kyl, R-Ariz., said he’s heard that “the 1,200 border patrol troops are, in effect, desk jobs.” “They aren’t boots on the ground at the border,” he said, adding that “they were not intended to be deployed to the border.” http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2010/05/25/obama-deploy-national-guard-troops-mexico-border/

Will the National Guard be stationed right on the line, with bullets in their guns and the authority to defend themselves? Almost certainly not. The border is a “combat zone,” says T.J. Bonner, head of the Border patrol agents’ union, too dangerous even for Border Patrol.  http://usactionnews.com/2010/05/americans-fleeing-border-invasion-obama-dithers/

It has gotten so bad that Americans are leaving fleeing their homes to get away from the border.

The fence building has stopped. 

Farmers are being killed on there own lands.  Robert Krentz and his dog died while sitting in his all terrain vehicle by an illegal immigrant who escaped back to Mexico.  http://www.americanfreepress.net/html/sheriff_tells_border_town_218.html 

Police officers are being shot.

Pinal County sheriff’s Lt. Tamatha Villar says the deputy suffered a superficial wound to his abdomen after being shot with an AK-47 assault rifle Friday afternoon.

Villar says the deputy was doing smuggling interdiction work and found bales of marijuana in the desert. He then encountered five suspected illegal immigrants, two armed with rifles, and was shot. http://hotair.com/archives/2010/04/30/arizona-deputy-shot-with-ak-47-by-suspected-illegal-immigrant/

Shot by an AK-47.  I doubt the police or any farmer is packing an AK-47 for protection and enforcement. Don’t go and blame the 2nd amendment and gun retailers.

Bill McMahon, deputy assistant director of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives, revealed last July that of the 100,000 weapons recovered by Mexican authorities during their drug war with the cartels, only 18,000 were determined to have been manufactured, sold, or imported from the United States. http://pajamasmedia.com/blog/he-didnt-just-lie-about-arizona-calderon-fibbed-about-assault-weapons-too/?singlepage=true

We’ve got the war on drugs, war on terror, war in Afghanistan, war in Iraq and a czar for everything except the U.S. Mexican border and the Deepwater Horizon Oil Clean up.  Oh wait, we don’t need another czar, we need a President who does something to fix the problems. NOW.

We asked again where is our commander-in-chief?  Hanging out in Chicago this Memorial Day weekend.  https://ahrcanum.wordpress.com/2010/05/26/national-guard-not-immigration-border-patrol/

We are getting the “The change you can believe in,” alright.  Changes like the President of the United States of America acquiescing to a foreign leader’s interference in the affairs of sovereign Arizona and bowing to Kings and Queens.  He is holding his first press conference in over a year later today. http://voices.washingtonpost.com/postpartisan/2010/05/what_obama_has_to_do_at_todays.html

The Modular Aerial Spray System on Air Force Reserve Command C-130 aircraft

The President just finished  a brief tour of touchy feel good town hall type visits to places like Youngstown, Ohio. http://www.realclearpolitics.com/articles/2010/05/18/obamas_remarks_on_the_economy_in_youngstown_105631.html Home of the U.S. Air Force Reserve C-130 Hercules of the 910th Airlift Wing at Youngstown Air Reserve Station, this is the only base in America that has aerial chemical sprayers.  Yes, chemtrails.

These planes are being loaded with dispersants to quell the oil spill in the Gulf.  Obama is scheduled to visit New Orleans on Friday, but his handlers may alter his plans due to the area being, ” hazardous to his health.”

The U.S. Coast Guard has pulled commercial fishing boats from oil cleanup efforts in Breton Sound off the Louisiana coast after several people became ill.  The Coast Guard says crew members on three vessels reported nausea, dizziness, headaches and chest pains Wednesday afternoon. Four people were hospitalized, including one who was flown to a hospital.

The Coast Guard told all 125 commercial vessels that were helping clean up spilled oil to return to shore. Medical workers evaluated the crew members as a precaution.  Breton Sound is about 30 miles southeast of New Orleans. http://www.foxnews.com/us/2010/05/27/coast-guard-pulls-fishing-boats-breton-sound-crew-members-cleaning-oil-sick/?loomia_ow=t0:s0:a4:g4:r5:c0.000000:b0:z5

While in Youngstown, Obama said, “..sometimes in Washington, everybody is spending all their time arguing about politics and you lose track of the folks who sent you there in the first place. And so it’s important for me to meet you directly and hear your concerns and your hopes and your dreams.”

If Obama really wanted to get in touch with us little people, he should head to Arizona. What ever happened to the, “Keeping America’s Promise” campaign? http://www.ohiodailyblog.com/content/obama-quotkeeping-americas-promisequot-bus-tour-starts-akron-saturday Keeping America’s promise is also the name of democrat John Kerry’s Politial Action Campaign-  http://www.democraticunderground.com/discuss/duboard.php?az=view_all&address=273×16265

The National Guard is headed for the Mexican U.S. border.http://www.nationalguard.com/  President Obama in his infinite wisdom or, from reading the Nation’s leading poll’s supporting Arizona’s immigration law( http://www.rasmussenreports.com/public_content/politics/obama_administration/daily_presidential_tracking_poll ) is sending troops.  It is not so obvious that it is for immigration control, as the Mexican Embassy point out that troops will be on guard against the illegal flows of weapons and bulk cash into Mexico, which provide organized crime with its firepower and its ability to corrupt.

In a statement from Embassy of Mexico – http://portal.sre.gob.mx/usa/index.php?option=news&task=viewarticle&sid=297

Regarding the Administration’s decision to send 1,200 National Guard servicemen to the US Southern border, the Government of Mexico trusts that this decision will help to channel additional US resources to enhance efforts to prevent the illegal flows of weapons and bulk cash into Mexico, which provide organized crime with its firepower and its ability to corrupt.

Additionally, the Government of Mexico expects that National Guard personnel will strengthen US operations in the fight against transnational organized crime that operates on both sides of our common border and that it will not, in accordance to its legal obligations, conduct activities directly linked to the enforcement of immigration laws.

Mexico is determined to continue working on its side of the border to enhance the security and well-being of border communities, and to deter and dismantle organized crime and its links to drug trafficking and human smuggling.

As part of our joint strategy in the fight against transnational organized crime, there are actions that our two governments have undertaken together, and there are other measures taken independently by Mexico and by the US within their respective territories. In this regard, the Mexican Government fully respects the sovereign decisions of the US Government, but underscores that joint responsibility must continue to underpin our joint efforts in rolling-back transnational organized crime operating on both sides of the border.

As the commander-in-chief, I believe he is supposed to be in charge of the Nation’s Military, not states National Guard troops.  Others are of the same opinion:

“There is no modern precedent for Congress to direct the president to deploy troops in the manner sought by the Amendment,” National Security Adviser James Jones and Homeland Security and Counterterrorism Adviser John Brennan wrote to Senate Armed Services Committee Chairman Carl Levin (D-Mich.) 

“It represents unwarranted interference with the Commander-in-Chief’s responsibilities to direct the employment of our Armed Forces and thus infringes on the President’s role in the management of the Total Force,” they wrote. Read more: http://www.politico.com/news/stories/0510/37759.html#ixzz0p2l86o32

USARNORTH conducts Homeland Defense and Civil Support operations, and Theater Security Cooperation activities, as the U.S. Northern Command Joint Force Land Component Command and the Army Service Component Command in order to protect the American people and their way of life.

We have U.S. Servicemen and women on active duty on U.S. soil in violation of Posse Comitatus. If we are breaking protocol anyway, why not get it over with and send the military to secure the border with Mexico? “…to protect the American people and their way of life!”

The Joint Task Force Civil Service mission statement, http://www.jtfcs.northcom.mil/  reads:

JTF-CS anticipates, plans and integrates USNORTHCOM chemical, biological, radiological, nuclear and high-yield explosive (CBRNE) consequence management operations, and when directed, establishes command and control of DOD forces in response to a CBRNE incident to assist local authorities in saving lives, preventing further injury and providing temporary critical support.

As much as I am against active duty troops on our soil, if they are going to be here, then utilize them here.  Don’t wait for another terrorist act to occur.  Post 9-11, the security of our nation remains at risk.  JTF-CS if so ordered would restore at least some sanity to our border, while of course pissing Mexico off.  Tough.  Rumor has it that there are plenty of Russian troops on U.S Soil, perhaps they’d lend a hand too. http://www.resistnet.com/forum/topics/alert-russian-troops-in-us-for

Our borders are being overwhelmed by Mexican people crossing into the greatest country on earth, illegally.  We are fighting wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.  North Korea and South Korea are playing a deadly game of tit for tat, and China’ aggression towards the U.S. has been pretty clear while it remains our largest debt holder.  Oil is spilling by thousand’s of gallons every day. 

Where is our commander-in-chief?

Obama will travel from Washington to Chicago on Thursday for a long weekend with his family, as planned. From there, he will go to Louisiana on Friday and return to Chicago that evening. http://www.google.com/hostednews/ap/article/ALeqM5hIfwUDeBxbANKX2GATS6YOiMTnJQD9FU1EK00  excellent commentary on the President’s movement and decisions can be found at http://thisweekwithbarackobama.blogspot.com/.  The President’s minute by minute location also with commentary can be found at http://www.politico.com/politico44/

Besides the multiple crisis we are battling, this weekend is Memorial Day, the day we honor our nation’s dead military personnel.  The president previously confused Memorial Day with Veteran’s Day. “Someone might want to explain to the President that it is a little difficult to say “thank you” or send care packages to the deceased.” http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/news/2257872/posts 

On Monday, Obama is scheduled to participate in a Memorial Day ceremony at Abraham Lincoln National Cemetery in Elwood, Ill.   In Obama’s absence, Vice President Joe Biden will participate in the customary wreath-laying ceremony at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier at Arlington National Cemetery outside Washington. 

Obama will however make it back to Washington in time next week to honor Paul McCartney, who has sacrificed so much for the freedoms we enjoy notes Michelle Malkin. http://michellemalkin.com/2010/05/25/ap-obama-to-skip-arlington-memorial/

Obama may be President, even though he still has not provided a birth certificate proving he is eligible. Still, it is pretty un-American for The President to not lay the traditional wreath at Arlington Cemetary.  What can you expect from the man who couldn’t bother to put his hand on his heart during  The Pledge of Allegiance?

999nasty

Nine hundred and ninety-nine is the natural number following following nine hundred ninety-eight and preceding one thousand. It is also a  Kaprekar number. For example, 999 is a Kaprekar number for base 10, because 999² = 998001, which can be split into 998 and 001, and 998 + 001 = 999.  It is also the largest 3 digit whole number in base 10. The Year 999 (CMXCIX) was a common year of the Julian Calendar. 

Seeing as the Devil is a sneaky deceiver, will 999,  September 9, 2009 be a day of prophecy?  999 upside down is 666. 
 
Someone in the Netherlands has come up with World Interconnectedness Day on 999, saying, http://www.interconnectedness090909.org/  “090909 in every country at 9 AM in every time zone (starting in New Zealand), all people who are aware of interconnectedness and who are committed to translate that awareness into action are invited to practice interconnectedness as much as possible throughout that day.”

“At 9AM (local time) churches, mosques, synagogues all around the world proclaim for 9 minutes to remind every human being, that we all share this planet and time,-that we all need to care for each other and reach out to each other,-no matter what culture, religion, age, gender, colour, tribe, political party, economic status we have. We all need each other.”

http://999itstime.org/ offers more liberal crap saying “we are in a state of emergency- socially, economically and ecologically” so please put aside 9 minutes of your time on 999 Day to join us in taking the following three actions, which should take approximately 3 minutes each. 1. Switch to green energyhttp://www.realpeoplepower.org/ . 2. Cut your emissions 10% and join up with 10:10 movement http://www.1010uk.org/ . 3.  Plant a tree. http://www.tree-nation.com/

Gag me. I don’t want to be connected, and I am tired of  America being relied upon to save the world.  How many zillions of dollars and manpower have been spent in other nations- including Muslim ones, only to have shoes thrown at our President and public displays of America’s Flag burning?  How many nations relied upon the blood of American Soldiers in history?  In this New World Order we keep hearing about, President Obama better wake up to the fact that we need to make America, America’s priority. 

Even under a State of Public Emergency,  thanks to the H1N1 Novel Swine Flu Pandemic- America’s borders remain open.  Ellis Island and The Statue of Liberty have welcomed millions through the department of immigration while others cross an invisible border to scourge America’s resources illegally.  The War on Drugs, The War on Terror- mostly due to the failure of America to protect itself. 

NAFTA, Free Trade, Free access to loot America.  Put your little pinky toe over the border illegally, and it should get shot off with out spending my tax dollars.  No free rides to take you to the best hospitals in the world either.

From Prison Planet – “The deaths we inflict and the pain and suffering we bring to others are merely collateral damage on the bloody path to American hegemony.” http://www.prisonplanet.com/us-hypocrisy-astonishes-the-world.html Fukc you too.  Don’t like being in the greatest country on earth?  Get the fukc out and go live in Afghanistan for awhile. 

People of all nations immigrate to the greatest land in the world because they are free.  The assault of 911, when bastards hijacked airplanes and tried to hijack American values still did not assail the fortitude of the American people.  How many people are opting to disavow US Citizenship? Good riddance to those who do- like the President of American Greetings who just moved to Israel.  Here’s an American Greeting for ya, don’t let the door hit you in the ass.

While 911 is the emergency dialing code in the U.S., and the date intentionally chosen to murder thousands of people,  999 is the emergency phone number in the U.K. One must have some concern for the possibility of another attack from Al Qaeda or some other whacko terrorist group.

With chaos raining and an order grounding all flight travel in the U.S after 911, “With the help of the FBI, the Saudis and the bin Laden family chartered an aircraft to pick up family members in Los Angeles, Orlando, and Washington, D.C. The bin Laden plane then flew the relatives to Boston, where — one week after the attacks — the group left Logan Airport bound for Jeddah.http://www.nationalreview.com/york/york091102.asp

Rest assured that there are members of the  bin Laden family who would not hesitate take advantage of 999.  The National Review at the time went on to note, “That family had been looked at very, very carefully in the two-year period leading up to September 11,” after the al Qaeda bombings of American embassies in East Africa, said retired CIA official Vince Cannistraro.”

Whether 999 is an auspicious omen or not, remains to be seen.  Rather than succumbing to the the bullshit indoctrination of  “Think Globally act Locally” you can visit an old fashioned sideshow on tour featuring several live human oddities at http://www.999eyes.com/

The band 999 http://www.nineninenine.net/ has some interesting sounds. Photo props to them from a cd cover. 

“Number nine. Number nine. Number nine.”The repetitive refrain from one of The Beatles’ most mind-bending journeys into psychedelia “Revolution 9,” the audio pastiche from “The White Album” is now serving as the backbeat of a big day for the biggest band in rock ‘n’ roll history http://showbiz.peacefmonline.com/news/200909/26174.php

For a thrill, there is the 999 probably the best streetbike Ducati has ever produced. http://www.motorcycle-usa.com/101/398/Motorcycle-Article/2003-Ducati-999.aspx

Zed Power again reminds us that “At 9:00 AM on September 9th, 2009 is the day of interconnectedness. A day for steeping yourself in world energies. Tilt the world axis. Put a little peace into the planetary awareness.”At 9:00 AM on September 9th, 2009 is the day of interconnectedness. A day for steeping yourself in world energies. Tilt the world axis. Put a little peace into the planetary awareness.” http://www.zedpower.net/090909/

From http://www.abovetopsecret.com/forum/thread330653/pg1 forum on 999- “as long as we are alive and kicking on this planet there will be an infinite amount of numerical and date related scenarios for one to ponder.”

There is always the 2012 doomsday conspiracy, when the long count calendar of the Ancient Mayans ends on December 21, 2012.

leaving america

For counter-terrorism and other purposes such as border security and fraud prevention, U.S. Citizens are required to have Passports.  Summer vacation travel is just ahead, and no doubt Immigration and Customs Enforcement will keep track of your comings and goings, primarily swiping the bar code.  On my last visit to Canada, no one bothered to place a governmental stamp on our Passports; much to my children’s chagrin, who wanted proof that they were there.

According to a Fox report today, in June RFID -Radio Frequency Identifications will be in use at the Canadian border for frequently border crossings under a program called eGo starting June 1st.  RFID windscreen sticker tags and driver identification cards, as well as installing inspection booth reader equipment have been in the works since 2003 for  99 FAST( Free and Secure Trade) lanes across 22 border crossings.  http://www.usingrfid.com/news/read.asp?lc=m12627kx53zz

Customs Border Patrol agents must be heaving a sigh of relief  as The FAST system forms an intelligent border crossing system that enhances trade flow and security along the borders. 

In a separate computer system, The State Department maintains a huge data base of  Passport Records including documents, photographs and information attached to passport applications and renewals.  Records like your “application for a passport and copies of any supporting documents like birth or marriage certificates. That application has your address, Social Security number, phone number, the name and number of your emergency contact and your photograph…. A search by name or passport number can also dredge up other items that have been attached to the file, such as court orders, arrest warrants, financial reports and even medical reports, according to the public State Department records.” http://www.time.com/time/nation/article/0,8599,1724759,00.html

No big deal until one realizes that the huge separate database ran by the Bureau of Consular Affairs also allows the Department of Homeland Security, the Department of Justice, the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the National Counter-Terrorism Center, “foreign governments, and entities such as Interpol” to link into the same system. I do not believe The Privacy Act extends beyond our borders.   Passport identification and authentication systems should be held securely by the government which issues the documentation.  What happened to the Bill of Rights? 

The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.

Without warrant, your data is available for the world and all its hackers and identity thieves.  It would appear that no U.S. Government Agency or foreign need to seek permission to access or distribute your personal information. The more the access, the more risk to vulnerability. Civil society would dictate you own your own data and that you take reasonable steps to keep things like your social security number private.  While many citizens think securities necessary, do the provisions of The Bill of Rights and The Constitution still apply?  Are Americans are becoming far too accustomed to having their privacy violated?  Are are borders really Constitution Free Zones as suggested by the ACLU?  Does your name appear on the 1.2 million person Terrorist Watch List along with Nelson Mandella, or U.S. Senator Ted Kennedy? http://www.aclu.org/privacy/spying/watchlistcounter.html   

Too bad all this databasing wasn’t available when Obama travelled to Jakarta and Karachi. A British Passport?  An Indonesian Passport?  An American Passport? His official birth certificate by all accounts should still be on file if he was issued a U.S. Passport.

In the UK Biometrics identification and national I.D. cards will be potentially operated by the Post Office and drug stores. The program allows people to scan fingerprints and facial photographs for storage on the cards and in a central database. http://news.zdnet.co.uk/security/0,1000000189,39649181,00.htm

In The U.S., Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano, as governor of Arizona, opposed REAL ID, even as a draft bill known as the PASS ID Act is floating around Congress. http://www.washingtonexaminer.com/opinion/columns/jamescarafano/A-REAL-homeland-security-test-44704387.html

“On your journeys- May passion be your wind, that leads you through the days, and may conviction keep you strong, Guide you on your way,  May there be moments that make your life so sweet, Oh- but more than memories. “http://www.lyricsmode.com/lyrics/m/mark_harris/find_your_wings.html
