Why the Proggies Love Net Neutrality: Sen. Feinstein: ‘Anarchist Cookbook’ Not ‘Protected by the First Amendment’

CNS News: “[O]nline bombmaking guides like the Anarchist Cookbook and Inspire Magazine…are not, in my view, protected by the First Amendment and should be removed from the Internet,” Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) said in a statement released on Thursday.

She was commenting on the arrests of two women accused of plotting a terror attack in New York City. According to the Associated Press, Noelle Velentzas, 28, and Asia Siddiqui, 31, were arrested at their homes in Queens early Thursday following a sting operation. A search of their homes turned up three propane gas tanks, a pressure cooker, fertilizer, handwritten notes on recipes for bomb-making (Anarchist Cookbook) and jihadist literature (Inspire), court papers say.

The women are being held without bail, and New York City Mayor Bill DiBlasio said there was never any imminent threat to New Yorkers.

Sen. Feinstein released the following statement after learning of the arrests:

The arrests of two women in New York accused of plotting to carry out bombings remind us that the threat of terrorism inside the United States endures. We must remain vigilant against these types of attacks and place a high priority on tracking and interdicting such plots.

I am particularly struck that the alleged bombers made use of online bombmaking guides like the Anarchist Cookbook and Inspire Magazine. These documents are not, in my view, protected by the First Amendment and should be removed from the Internet.

I commend the FBI and the New York City Police Department for their work in preventing this and other potential attacks and am pleased that Loretta Lynch, a very distinguished attorney, will be leading the prosecution.

According to the criminal complaint, the women “researched and acquired some of the components of a car bomb, like the one used in the 1993 World Trade Center bombing; a fertilizer bomb, like the one used in the 1995 bombing of the federal building in Oklahoma City; and a pressure cooker bomb, like the one used in the 2013 Boston Marathon bombing.”

The complaint also cites a poem written by Siddiqui that appeared in a magazine (Inspire) published by al-Qaida in the Arabian Peninsula that declared there is “no excuse to sit back and wait — for the skies rain martyrdom,” investigators wrote in court papers.

Velentzas called bin Laden one of her heroes, and said she and Siddiqui were “citizens of the Islamic State,” they said.

The Anarchist Cookbook has been around since the 1970s and is now available online.

Proverbs 6:12-19

A troublemaker and a villain,
who goes about with a corrupt mouth,
who winks maliciously with his eye,
signals with his feet
and motions with his fingers,
who plots evil with deceit in his heart—
he always stirs up conflict.

Therefore disaster will overtake him in an instant;
he will suddenly be destroyed—without remedy.

There are six things the Lord hates,
seven that are detestable to him:
haughty eyes,
a lying tongue,
hands that shed innocent blood,
a heart that devises wicked schemes,
feet that are quick to rush into evil,
a false witness who pours out lies
and a person who stirs up conflict in the community.


Count the details in the description in Proverbs.
It seems our president has scored 100%!

Son of President Reagan says he’s not afraid to burn in Hell

Ron Reagan, the younger (and biological) son of the late President Ronald Reagan, made a 30-second ad campaign to promote atheism for the Freedom From Religion Foundation (FFRF).

FFRF ran a radio version of the ad last year on “The Randi Rhodes Show.” A TV version has been broadcast more recently on “The Daily Show” and repeatedly on CNN. ABC, NBC, CBS, and Fox declined to run the ad.

In the ad, with a mocking sneer, 56-year-old Ron proudly declares that he’s “a lifelong atheist, not afraid of burning in Hell.”

Ron has been a nonbeliever since childhood and is surprised when people react negatively when they hear about it. He told the L.A. Times last year, “I think when you hold an opinion that you find entirely reasonable, you are surprised when you discover that other people don’t also consider it reasonable, and kind of get up in arms.”

President Lucifer’s Net Grab

When cyber attacks supposedly hit America’s defense systems, the president announced that we need to impose more control on the internet. His agenda to establish a dictatorship would be greatly served by such a move. ~ TD

REPUBLICAN FCC MEMBER WARNS NET NEUTRALITY IS NOT NEUTRAL

Wheeler, Markey and Boxer

Wheeler, Markey and Boxer

by CHRISS W. STREET

FCC Chairman Tom Wheeler recently acknowledged that the two Democrats on the commission had decided to avoid Congressional input regarding the Internet by adopting President Franklin Roosevelt’s 1934 Communications Act to regulate the Internet with the same federal control as the old AT&T customer monopoly. To make sure that libertarian advocates would remain in the dark, Wheeler “embargoed” release of any of the specifics in the new administrative “policy” that will act as law…

The FCC legislation that was passed eighty-one years ago by the most leftist Congress in American history to ban companies from participating in “unjust or unreasonable discrimination” when providing phone services to customers…

But in 1949, the Democrat-dominated Commission implemented the “Fairness Doctrine” that required holders of media broadcast licenses to present “issues of public importance” in a manner that is “honest, equitable, and balanced” in the “Commission’s view. It would take 39 years before a conservative Congress could overturn a policy that hijacked the mainstream media to kowtow to liberals or face loss of their licenses…

If the Internet economy was a country, it would rank fifth, behind only the U.S., China, Japan, and India. Economic activity on the Internet totals $4.2 trillion, and almost half of the earth’s 7 billion people are already connected to the Web…

Ajit Pai’s description of “President Obama’s 332-page plan to regulate the Internet” sounds Orwellian. He tweeted a picture of himself holding the 332-page plan just below a picture of a smiling Barack Obama with a comment, “I wish the public could see what’s inside.” The implication depicted Obama as George Orwell’s “Big Brother.” …

We all have some ideas about how this may affect us.
We must pray for divine intervention.

Are you a potential terrorist? Take this quiz to find out!

Many Americans assume that only “bad people” have to worry about draconian anti-terror laws. There have been so many anti-terrorism laws passed since 9/11, as well as Homeland Security memoranda on “potential terrorists” that are not yet laws, that it is hard for Americans to keep up on what kinds of beliefs and behaviors might get us on the government’s “list” of suspected bad guys.

Most of the items on the checklists below come from Washington’s Blog of Feb. 21, 2012. The checklists are in two categories “Behaviors” and “Beliefs,” so that you can see if you might be identified by your government as a potential terrorist. Each attribute on the checklists is embedded with a link to a source.

Since Washington’s Blog compiled the checklists 3 years ago, I’m sure the Obama administration, especially the good folks at Homeland Security, has added more identifying markers to the lists.

The checklists below are a quiz. See how many items on the checklists apply to you!

terrorist

A. Behaviors

The following actions may get an American citizen living on U.S. soil labeled as a “suspected terrorist” today:

  1. Speaking out against government policies
  2. Protesting anything
  3. Questioning war (even though war reduces our national security; and see this)
  4. Criticizing the government’s targeting of innocent civilians with drones (although killing innocent civilians with drones is one of the main things which increases terrorism. And see this)
  5. Asking questions about pollution (even at a public Congressional hearing?)
  6. Paying cash at an Internet cafe
  7. Asking questions about Wall Street shenanigans
  8. Holding gold
  9. Creating alternative currencies
  10. Stocking up on more than 7 days of food (even though all Mormons are taught to stockpile food, and most Hawaiians store up on extra food)
  11. Having bumper stickers saying things like “Know Your Rights Or Lose Them”
  12. Investigating factory farming
  13. Infringing a copyright
  14. Taking pictures or videos
  15. Talking to police officers
  16. Wearing a hoodie
  17. Driving a van
  18. Writing on a piece of paper
  19. Belonging to a militia
  20. Not having a Facebook account may soon be added

B. Beliefs

Holding the following beliefs may also be considered grounds for suspected terrorism:

  1. Valuing online privacy
  2. Supporting Ron Paul or being a libertarian
  3. Liking the Founding Fathers
  4. Being a Christian, especially if you’re an Evangelical or Catholic
  5. Being an ultra-orthodox Jew
  6. Being anti-tax, anti-regulation or for the gold standard
  7. Being reverent of individual liberty
  8. Being anti-nuclear
  9. Believe in conspiracy theories
  10. A belief that one’s personal and/or national ‘way of life’ is under attack
  11. Impose strict religious tenets or laws on society (fundamentalists)
  12. Insert religion into the political sphere
  13. Those who seek to politicize religion
  14. Supported political movements for autonomy
  15. Being anti-abortion and pro-life
  16. Being “far right
  17. Being a member of the Tea Party
  18. Being anti-global
  19. Suspicious of centralized federal authority
  20. Fiercely nationalistic (as opposed to universal and international in orientation)
  21. A belief in the need to be prepared for an attack…by participating in … survivalism
  22. Opposing genetically engineered food
  23. Opposing surveillance

So how did you do?

I checked off 11 items on the A list, and 20 items on the B list. I’m in trouble! LOL

As you might have noticed, the checklists are in complete violation of our rights under the United States Constitution, especially our First Amendment right to freedom of speech. When even Supreme Court Justices and congressmen worry that we are drifting into dictatorship, we should all be concerned.

Obama’s DOJ warns you can be prosecuted for saying bad things about Islam on social media

French philosopher Voltaire (1694-1778) wrote that “To learn who rules over you, simply find out whom you are not allowed to criticize.”

By that yardstick, the rulers in America today are Blacks and Muslims.

The citizens’ watchdog group Judicial Watch reports that in May 2013:

In its latest effort to protect followers of Islam in the U.S. the Obama Justice Department warns against using social media to spread information considered inflammatory against Muslims, threatening that it could constitute a violation of civil rights.

The move comes a few years after the administration became the first in history to dispatch a U.S. Attorney General to personally reassure Muslims that the Department of Justice (DOJ) is dedicated to protecting them. In the unprecedented event, Attorney General Eric Holder assured a San Francisco-based organization (Muslim Advocates)….

“Muslims and Arab Americans have helped build and strengthen our nation,” Holder said after expressing that he is “grateful” to have Muslims as a partner in promoting tolerance, ensuring public safety and protecting civil rights.

Holder’s message was reinforced by a federal attorney and an FBI agent.

As reported by The Tullahoma News, Bill Killian, U.S. attorney for the Eastern District of Tennessee, and Kenneth Moore, special agent in charge of the FBI’s Knoxville Division) warned Americans that they can be prosecuted for “violating civil rights” when they post inflammatory commentary targeted at Muslims. 

Killian said Internet postings that violate civil rights “as they play into freedom of religion and exercising freedom of religion” are subject to federal jurisdiction and prosecution. Referring to a 2013 Facebook posting by Tennessee Coffee County Commissioner Barry West of a picture of a man pointing a double-barreled shotgun at a camera lens with the caption saying, “How to Wink at a Muslim,” Killian said, “If a Muslim had posted ‘How to Wink at a Christian,’ could you imagine what would have happened? We need to educate people about Muslims and their civil rights, and as long as we’re here, they’re going to be protected.”

Barry West Facebook

Eric Holder said he’s “grateful” to have Muslims as a partner in promoting tolerance, ensuring public safety and protecting civil rights? Holder should tell that to:

President Lucifer’s Cybertheft

I just visited Drudge Report, and encountered the new lead story. While scanning the text I was struck by the sequence of the headlines in the last 24 hours. First there was a full panic about hacked government sites and ISIS threats to our soldiers. And now, the president uses the moment to push his next effort to control the internet. ~ TD

Obama pushes for internet rules

YahooNews: Obama renews push
for cybersecurity law

Washington (AFP) – President Barack Obama made a renewed push Tuesday for cybersecurity legislation  Blah blah blah…

Blah blah blah… Sony attack… Blah blah blah… Twitter account that was hacked by Islamist jihadist sympathizers yesterday… Blah blah blah…

“…make sure that we are much more effective in protecting the American people from these kinds of cyberattacks…” Blah blah blah…

…enhances collaboration and information sharing amongst the private sector” Blah blah blah…

…allow the private sector to share data on threats without fear of liability… Blah blah blah…


falseflag_hackRemember the panicked headlines this morning about generals’ home addresses being published on ISIS hacked Twitter and CENTCOM pages?

Well now all you have is a couple of links on the lower right column of the DrudgeReport.

degraded_headlines

AND please note the downgraded link above:
“Tracked Back to Maryland.”

ISIS hack tracked to somewhere in Maryland?
Hmmmm… kinda close to DC, dontcha think?  

pres-luciferAnd one line of speculation about the “Sony Hack” was that it was a mutually beneficial fraud pulled of by Sony and the White House. It would benefit Sony as a publicity stunt for the release of a tediously sophomoric movie, and the White House in their push to take control of the internet. You know, the internet? That pesky place where the government still can’t force their spin on every piece of news?    


Is it just me, or is anybody else’s “Spidey sense” tingling about this sequence of news stories?
