* I support Oathkeepers' effort to remove traitors from office.

December 25th, 2011
Oath Keepers Launches National Effort to Recall and/or Remove Members of Congress Who Voted for NDAA Military Detention. Merry Christmas, U.S. Congress!

“There are only two things we should fight for. One is the defense of our homes and the other is the Bill of Rights.”- Marine General Smedley Butler.

Oath Keepers has launched a national effort to recall (or remove by any other lawful means) all of the oath breaking members of Congress, in both the House and Senate, who voted for the National Defense Appropriations Act of 2012 (NDAA), which contains provisions that authorize indefinite military detention and trial by military commission of “any person” – including U.S. citizens and lawful residents – upon the mere say-so of the President or one of his subordinates in the Executive Branch, such as within the Department of Defense or CIA.

Number three on the Oath Keepers list of Orders We Will Not Obey states:

    3. We will NOT obey orders to detain American citizens as “unlawful enemy combatants” or to subject them to military tribunal.

That is near the top of our list for very good reason – this claimed power will kill our Bill of Rights unless it is stopped.  To be blunt, we consider the NDAA of 2012 to be a declaration of war on the American people, and an act of treason.   But even if you disagree with that view, and merely consider those who voted for it to be oath breakers, please work hard to remove them all from office.  Oath Keepers members across the nation will lead or assist efforts in their states to remove any member of Congress, regardless of party, who voted for this monstrosity.

We encourage all Americans of whatever political party to set aside their differences and come together in defense of our Bill of Rights by rooting out this den of vipers in Washington D.C. who are either knowingly killing our Bill of Rights, were too concerned with their careers to take a principled stand by voting against the NDAA, or are useful idiots who don’t understand what they swore an oath to defend.  Whatever their excuse, they have violated their oaths to defend the Constitution and must be sent packing.  This is not about politics.  This is about defending the Constitution.

Get Lots of Change From Banks
- It is suggested to do this on May 5th, or Cinquo de Mayo, or even beyond that. The following is a quote.
- Be the change you hope to see.
- Visualize civil authority arresting central banking criminals such as Rothschilds, Rockefellers and Morgans and other members of this Cabal such as Henry Kissinger, etc. Visualize this process taking place worldwide peacefully and smoothly. Visualize the world finally being free from financial slavery, free from all evil dictators and corrupt politicians.
- Visualize bright new future for humanity, with new and fair financial system put into place, with all debts canceled, prosperity funds for humanitarian projects released, advanced technologies introduced, ecosystem healed and human beings finally being free from all oppression.

New Freedom News Venture to Support
* See for details. It's being organized by Gary Franchi, who says he founded the first Ron Paul SuperPAC. I hope it's legit. Does anyone know? I mean I hope they're serious about a news medium that supports real freedom.

GOOOH stands for Get Out Of Our House, meaning in Congress, and is a revolutionary way to make Congress representative of the people. See .
- It is non-partisan and allows local people to select people among themselves to be candidates for Congress. And it requires them to sign a contract saying they will vote the way they said they would on an extensive questionnaire and, if they slip up, they'll be required to resign within 3 days or so.
- This started in about 2008 and has over 100,000 or 200,000 members and when it reaches 500,000, it will ask for membership dues, start a party, and pay for ads for all of their candidates, rather than any particular one.
- It seems to be even better thought out than the FSP. See
- This video is about how candidates are selected by the people via GOOOH:

Action Alert - Trans Pacific Partnership - Save the Internet

        Imagine a world where you could be dragged to court and receive a large fine just for clicking on a link, where service providers would hand over information about your online activities without privacy safeguards, and where online content could be removed by big media conglomerates at will.

        This scenario could become a reality before we know it. In just a few days, a group of 600 lobbyist “advisors” and un-elected trade representatives are scheming behind closed doors to decide how the Internet will be governed, including whether you could get fined for your Internet use. Instead of debating this openly, they’re meeting secretly to craft an Internet trap through an international agreement called the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP).

        In short, it appears that it will be big-media lobbyists—not citizens—who get to decide whether citizens will be fined as suspected copyright criminals. Please help us raise a loud call before it’s too late. Visit:

        We know from leaked documents that industry lobbyists intend to blanket these new restrictions and laws around the world, without us having any say in the matter. How can they do this? Instead of an open, public process, they’ll use international tribunals to go around domestic judicial systems. And once the trap is set, there’s no going back.

        Here are the details—the TPP’s Internet trap would:

            Criminalize your everyday use of the Internet,

            Force service providers to collect and hand over your private data without privacy safeguards, and

            Give media conglomerates more power to fine you for Internet use, remove online content—including entire websites—and even terminate your access to the Internet.

        The TPP is secretive, it’s extreme, and it will criminalize your daily use of the Internet. Don’t let Big Media lobbyists lure you into this Internet trap. Speak out now.

        We deserve to know what will be blocked, and what we and our families will be fined for. If enough of us speak out now, we can prevent governments from slow-walking us into an Internet trap. Make your voice heard today:
Title: Re: Threats to Internet Freedom (Now Fascist Soros)
Post by: Luck on February 19, 2014, 11:19:46 pm
On a science forum that had a Google warning against it lately for being a supposed "Attack Site" one of the members mentioned after the warning was removed yesterday the following.

The organisation is a strange affair, a self-appointed watchdog with the ability to bring down a site for arbitrary reasons, with little recourse for the affected site. It is supposedly a non-profit supported by donations, but from what I have found, George Soros is the main supporter.

[Basically it is just a vigilante organization (funded by George Soros) that seeks to "protect people". Too much autonomy, not NEARLY enough transparency, and no accountability at all.]

Maybe there was some genuine problem, but what right does this group have to be able to shut down any site they like, whenever they feel like it?

Internet Danger: Comcast takeover of Time Warner Cable 'will throttle choice on the web' 13 Feb 2014 Consumer groups reacted angrily to the merger of cable giant Comcast and Time Warner Cable on Thursday, claiming the combination could "throttle" choice on the internet. Comcast’s proposed 45.2bn takeover of TWC will create a media behemoth that will dominate broadband internet access across the US. Jodie Griffin, senior staff attorney at consumer rights group Public Knowledge said: "This is a deal that needs to be blocked." She said Comcast was likely to use the extra leverage to "drive up costs and reduce choices for consumers.", and claimed the new company would be too powerful, becoming a "gatekeeper" capable of "throttling competition."

Finland No. 1, US sinks to 46th in global press freedom rankings
2014-02-12, Yahoo! News

The United States did not live up to the promise of the First Amendment last year, “far from it,” sinking to 46th in global press freedom rankings, a respected international nonprofit group said. The U.S. plummeted 13 slots to 46th overall “amid increased efforts to track down whistle-blowers and the sources of leaks,” Reporters Without Borders warned in an annual report. “The trial and conviction of Private Bradley Manning and the pursuit of NSA analyst Edward Snowden were warnings to all those thinking of assisting in the disclosure of sensitive information that would clearly be in the public interest,” the organization said. The group ... also cited the Department of Justice’s seizure of Associated Press telephone records and a court’s pressure on New York Times reporter James Risen to testify against a CIA staffer accused of leaking classified information. “The whistle-blower is clearly the enemy in the U.S.,” Delphine Halgand, who heads the RSF outpost in Washington, told Yahoo News. “Eight whistle-blowers have been charged under the Obama administration, the highest number of any administration, of all other administrations combined.” Overall, RSF said in its report, “countries that pride themselves on being democracies and respecting the rule of law have not set an example, far from it.” “Freedom of information is too often sacrificed to an overly broad and abusive interpretation of national security needs, marking a disturbing retreat from democratic practices. Investigative journalism often suffers as a result,” the group said.

Note: As if to underscore the sad state of US press freedom, we couldn't find any major media who reported this sad news, other than a Washington Post blog [], which simply downplays the news and tries to explain it away.

The David Miranda judgment has chilling implications for press freedom, race relations and basic justice
2014-02-19, The Guardian (One of the UK's leading newspapers)

One person's freedom fighter may be another's terrorist, but David Miranda is very clearly neither. Yet he was detained at Heathrow airport for nine hours under schedule 7 of the Terrorism Act 2000. That the high court has now found his detention to be lawful is disappointing, to say the least. If someone travelling as part of journalistic work can be lawfully detained like this – questioned for hours without a lawyer present, his electronic equipment confiscated and cloned and all without the merest suspicion of wrongdoing required – then clearly something has gone wrong with the law. Schedule 7 suffers the same glaring flaws as the old section 44 counter-terrorism power that also allowed stop and search without suspicion. Such laws leave themselves wide open to discriminatory misuse: section 44 never once led to a terrorism conviction but was used to stop people like journalist Pennie Quinton. In a significant victory, Liberty took her case to the European court of human rights and the power was declared unlawful. Liberty and other organisations intervened in [Miranda's] case on just this point, arguing that the detention violated article 10 of the European convention, the right to freedom of expression. Our riled security services' transparent intimidation and interference with Miranda is shocking. But it's also important that we use his case to shed light on the murky everyday reality of schedule 7.

Note: For more on threats to civil liberties, see the deeply revealing reports from reliable major media sources available here.

Journalist Sues Police re Use of Aerial Recording of Fatal Traffic Accident
2014-02-18, ABC News/Associated Press
A journalist filed a lawsuit [on February 18] alleging that Hartford [Connecticut] police officers violated his free-speech rights by questioning his use of a remote-controlled aircraft to record images of a car wreck. Pedro Rivera['s] complaint says that officers demanded that Rivera stop flying the remote-controlled aircraft, asked him to leave the area and told his employer that he had interfered with a police investigation. "I told them I was there on my personal time," said Rivera, who was suspended for a week from his on-call job with a Connecticut television station. "They went to my employer and caused a lot of problems for me and my job." The lawsuit ... seeks damages for Rivera but also asks the court to declare that he did not break any laws by operating the 2 1/2-pound, four-rotor aircraft above the scene of the fatal Feb. 1 wreck. It says that Rivera made clear he was not working for the television station, WFSB-TV, although he acknowledged that he occasionally sent the video feed from his drone to the station. "The suit is as much about trying to make sure police officers don't legislate from the beat as it is about getting a court to weigh in and say what the standards are," said Norm Pattis, the attorney for Rivera. Rivera, 29, of Hartford, argues in the lawsuit that police violated his First Amendment right to free expression as well as his Fourth Amendment right to be free from unreasonable seizures.

Judge Tosses Suit Against NYPD, Says Any Damage Was Caused by Reporters Who Exposed It
2014-02-21, The Intercept
A federal judge in Newark has thrown out a lawsuit against the New York Police Department for spying on New Jersey Muslims, saying if anyone was at fault, it was the Associated Press for telling people about it. In his ruling ... U.S. District Court Judge William J. Martini simultaneously demonstrated the willingness of the judiciary to give law enforcement alarming latitude in the name of fighting terror, greenlighted the targeting of Muslims based solely on their religious beliefs, and blamed the media for upsetting people by telling them what their government was doing. The NYPD’s clandestine spying on daily life in Muslim communities in the region — with no probable cause, and nothing to show for it — was exposed in a Pulitzer-Prize winning series of stories by the AP. The stories described infiltration and surveillance of at least 20 mosques, 14 restaurants, 11 retail stores, two grade schools, and two Muslim student associations in New Jersey alone. In a cursory, 10-page ruling issued before even hearing oral arguments, Martini essentially said that what the targets didn’t know didn’t hurt them: "None of the Plaintiffs’ injuries arose until after the Associated Press released unredacted, confidential NYPD documents and articles expressing its own interpretation of those documents. Nowhere in the Complaint do Plaintiffs allege that they suffered harm prior to the unauthorized release of the documents by the Associated Press. This confirms that Plaintiffs’ alleged injuries flow from the Associated Press’s unauthorized disclosure of the documents. The harms are not “fairly traceable” to any act of surveillance."

Title: Internet Freedom: Use the Dark Net
Post by: Luck on March 18, 2016, 05:53:31 pm
Dark Net
This video talks about the Dark Net, which is accessible via the TOR browser, which is said to be very similar to Firefox and thus easy to learn to use.

Bitcoins are said to be popular on the Dark Net.

This seems to be a good read: A Beginner's Guide to Exploring the Darknet. E.g., it mentions other options besides TOR.

This one is for "Accessing the Darknet in Under 2 Minutes - Beginner's Guide"

Or maybe download TOR here:

[I haven't tried this yet, but the site says:]
The Tor software protects you by bouncing your communications around a distributed network of relays run by volunteers all around the world: it prevents somebody watching your Internet connection from learning what sites you visit, it prevents the sites you visit from learning your physical location, and it lets you access sites which are blocked.

The Tor Browser lets you use Tor on Windows, Mac OS X, or Linux without needing to install any software. It can run off a USB flash drive, comes with a pre-configured web browser to protect your anonymity, and is self-contained (portable).

Tor Browser Downloads
To start using Tor Browser, download the file for your preferred language. This file can be saved wherever is convenient, e.g. the Desktop or a USB flash drive.

[After the list of language links it says:]
See our instructions on how to verify package signatures [ ], which allows you to make sure you've downloaded the file we intended you to get. Also, note that the Firefox ESR in our bundles is modified [ ] from the default Firefox ESR [ ]

[After that is a list of Experimental Tor Browser language links, which is not explained.]

[Then comes the instructions for downloading etc.]

Internet Attacks: Finding Better Intrusion Detection

Use a VPN with Tor. Don’t fall into a false sense of security by believing that Tor is enough to protect you. If you want the very best anonymity and privacy while on the Deep Web then you need to be using a VPN with Tor. It is an extremely valuable tool in your fight for anonymity. Click here to find the best VPN for privacy on the Deep Web:

What are risks of using TOR?
- [Tor] is almost secure and it doesn't matter, hackers are also using TOR for anonymity. Since the traffic is encrypted at every hop your communication will be secure till the exit node of TOR.
It is the node where your Traffic leaves the anonymous network and enters into the open Internet. From there your traffic can be monitored. If anyone wants to sniff the traffic then they can sniff at the exit node. If you are [using a] browsing service which is not using HTTPS then there will be a problem since the traffic is not encrypted after exiting the exit node of the TOR network.

Using TOR: is it worth the risk, or the time? Tools like virtual private networks and proxy servers are often enough to cover your digital tracks, but if you're particularly paranoid – perhaps with good reason – then you might turn to The Onion Router (TOR) underground network: Read more:
