In his speech yesterday, Obama said that information available online fuels ‘violent agendas’ through ‘hateful propaganda’ that drives terrorism. Warning that ‘internet materials’ are fueling domestic terror threats and actually causing people to go out and commit mass acts of terrorism, Obama is once again following in the footsteps of his fellow control freak associates in assaulting the openness of the internet that is now a hot spring for alternative news amid the frozen depths of the mainstream media.
In the speech, Obama said:
“Today, a person can consume hateful propaganda, commit themselves to a violent agenda and learn how to kill without leaving their home.”
The simple reality is that the internet is the largest threat to corrupt government officials. It’s how we managed to break open the entire IRS scandal that has blown up in Obama’s face and led to calls for criminal action against top officials responsible for targeting Constitution-based groups with phony financial assaults. It’s also how we know about the truth surrounding Benghazi and what went down there. An event that has also generated serious awareness and even calls for impeachment.
Internet-Based Alt News Growing At Record Levels
So it should come as no surprise to find that Obama and others want the internet to be not only monitored by the government, but regulated as well. By using the ever-looming threat of domestic terrorism, it is simple to trace back extremists to certain internet sites that can be used as catalysts to enact legislation that endangers and annihilates internet freedom. Specifically, people like myself and others can be targeted in these crackdowns in order to give alternative news sources a bad name.
Obama’s latest speech is similar to his previous, in which he warns against those who question what he calls our ‘brave’ new government and warn of tyranny and corruption within it. The bottom line is that Obama is setting the stage here, as he has been for quite a while along with others, for an informational crusade against websites and blogs that dare to criticize government. Already labeled as ‘conspiracy’ and ‘extremist’ websites for even asking the simplest questions of government, the fight against net neutrality and alternative news sources is about to be taken to a whole new level.
‘You may want to consider relocating’ - #Oregon police too broke to fight crime — #Propaganda | #WildWest #FTW
There are only six deputies in the Josephine County, Oregon Sherriff’s Office, and resources are so sparse that a woman was raped last year after an emergency dispatcher told her four times over the phone there was no one to help her. It was last August, and a woman was brutally raped and sodomized by her abusive ex-boyfriend after unsuccessfully pleading with a 911 dispatcher for over 10 minutes. “I’m not letting him in, but he’s, like, tried to break down the door, and he’s trying to break into one of the windows,” the woman is heard telling the operator in the calls. “He put me in the hospital a few weeks ago, and I’ve been trying to keep him away,” she said. Four times during that call, the operator told the woman that she wasn’t able to provide assistance. “I don’t have anybody to send out there,” she kept saying. “Once again, it’s unfortunate you guys don’t have any law enforcement up there.” At the county jail, staffing cuts caused by a lack of funding has formed a revolving door system where inmates are released sometimes right after being arrested because there’s seldom enough money to keep facilities functioning at even the bare minimum. There are only six deputies in the Josephine Sherriff’s Office, and recently the department’s canine unit was cut to a single dog. “You may want to consider relocating to an area with adequate law enforcement services,” the department cautioned the county’s 80,000 or so residents last year. Although a Wild West-like scenario has spiraled out of control in the Pacific Northwest, residents voted against a measure Tuesday that would have funded much-needed law enforcement operations at the cost of only a 3 percent tax levy. The measure would have bumped the county government tax rate — currently the lowest in the state — to $1.48 per $1,000, in turn costing the average homeowner in Josephine around $85 a year extra. But even after news of last year’s rape went viral, residents narrowly decided this week to halt any attempt to milk mere pennies on the dollar for an added sense of security. On Tuesday evening the decision was too close to call in Josephine, but by Wednesday afternoon the county clerk acknowledged to RT that the public safety levy was voted down by a margin of 51 to 49 percent, with barely 500 ballots deciding the fate of a county where calling 911 is no longer the way to handle an emergency. “There isn’t a day go by that we don’t have another victim,” Josephine County Sheriff Gil Gilberson told Oregon Public Broadcasting last week. Speaking to OPB, Gilberson directly blamed the ongoing inability to fight crime on budget restraints. “If you don’t pay the bill, you don’t get the service,” he said. Policing Josephine County wasn’t always a problem. In 2000, Congress passed the Secure Rural Schools and Community Self-Determination Act and as a result began sharing revenue made off of timber grown on public land. “Federal forests make up 60 percent of the land in many rural Oregon counties. Because federal land isn’t subject to property taxes, the federal government for decades shared timber sale revenue with the counties,” the Oregonian recently noted. Those funds were until recently divvied up among rural counties to help line the pockets where sparsely inhabited towns were losing out on taxes brought in by more densely populated regions. The act has expired, however, and the result has been the rapid defunding of public programs in some areas, including the Josephine Sherriff’s Office. Since the expiration of the bill, the county has lost millions of dollars in revenue that for more than a decade was a routine handout. In the case of last August’s rape, a 911 dispatcher stayed on the phone with the soon-to-be victim for over 10 minutes, instructing her to hide in her house while emergency options were considered. “None of the sheriff’s deputies in Josephine County were on duty,” explained Amelia Templeton of OPB. “So dispatch transferred the call to the Oregon State Police, but they also didn’t have anyone available.” “And four times in total, she says there isn’t anyone who can help,” she said. The expiration of the act that provided the city with timber revenue forced the Sheriff’s Office to cut its budget in half and most law enforcement operations have ended. Had voters agreed to a tax hike on Tuesday, the county expected to raise $9.5 million during the next year and slightly more annually through 2016. Those funds, the voters were told, would be used to increase inmate capacity at the county jail, provide the resources for the District Attorney’s office to prosecute more criminals and, generally, bring the force back up to snuff. “I’m not going to vote for it,” Josephine County convenience store owner Les Monk told Templeton. “Things are no worse or better now than they were when they were fully funded.” For Monk — and presumably the 13,365 other “nay” ballots casted on Tuesday — things are just fine in Josephine. Monk told Templeton that he carried a knife for his own protection and suggested that paying money for an inefficient police force wasn’t worth his tax dollars. “People have to understand you will, and are able, to defend your property,” he said. According to Templeton, an attorney for the rape victim said the woman felt hopeless, alone and very scared when she waited, unsuccessfully, for police assistance last year. Sheriff Gilbertson admitted that it’s a very real problem. “It’s devastated law enforcement,” Sheriff Gilbertson told The Oregonian. “The criminals now act with impunity and a sense of entitlement.” “It’s been a deteriorating situation for a long time,” added Greg Wolf, intergovernmental affairs director for Gov. John Kitzhaber, “and we can see that we’re going to hit a wall unless we come up with some dramatic solutions.” Nearby on Tuesday, voters in Curry County voters rejected a $4.5 million effort that aimed to reverse the dastardly trend there. And in Lane County, a five-year, $80 million property tax levy was approved amid similar circumstances — but only after eight previous attempts stretching all the way back to 1998 were rejected by voters. “We’ve essentially eviscerated law enforcement staffing over the last 45 years,” Lane County District Attorney Alex Gardner told a legislative committee earlier this year. With this week’s vote, Lane County can start to pick up the pieces. In Josephine, however, residents have a long ways to go. Speaking to OPB late Tuesday, reporter April Baer said Gov. Kitzhaber is now expected to declare a public safety emergency and likely and impose a temporary tax to keep at least some law enforcement operations functioning through the end of 2014.
#REALNESS - The #FBI Fosters, Funds and Equips American Terrorists! (by @corbettreport)
TRANSCRIPT AND SOURCES: http://www.corbettreport.com/?p=7276
The Boston Marathon bombing has provoked shock, grief and outrage from around the world. After decades of conditioning, the public automatically equates such terrorism with Muslim radicals. But the evidence shows that every major terror plot on American soil in the past 10 years has been fostered, funded and equipped by one organization: the FBI.

ocal anarchists have announced they’ll target big business as a part of their May Day protests.
Puget Sound Anarchists have posted a call for protestors to rally in front of a building where investment bank Goldman Sachs has an office in downtown Seattle.
Seattle police says officers will be prepared at that location and others around the city on Wednesday.
”We’ve done an assessment of likely targets and there will be officers posted in those locations. We can’t possibly post at every potential window there’s a lot of windows in the city but we can certainly to a risk assessment and staff to where we think those incidents might occur and create contingencies under those areas we may have missed,” said Capt. Chris Fowler of the Seattle Police Department.
Aside from a peaceful protest to the Federal Building during the day, local anarchists are also planning a protest beginning at Pine and Broadway at 6 p.m. The anarchists have not announced a route for May Day.
”The marches are taking place at different times so this year is substantially different than last year in many different respects,” said Fowler.
Seattle police says it is adding extra staff for this year’s May Day but would not reveal any specifics.
Last year anarchists caused tens of thousands of dollars in damage and even triggered a civil emergency.
The mayor’s office says this year, the city will wait until it’s necessary to issue a civil emergency based on the facts.

Secret Mind Control & Brain Washing Experiments - #MKULTRA #PSYOPS #HistoryLesson
In 1979, just two years after U.S. Senate hearings revealed disturbing information about a secret government mind control program code-named Project MKULTRA, this one-hour documentary covering some of the clandestine, illegal activities involved in this mind control project was released.
One of the topics covered by this intriguing film is the bizarre activity of a man named George White, who operated outside of the law while directly under CIA direction.
At minute 47 into the documentary correspondent Paul Altmeyer states, “And what of George White, the man who helped the agency in so many of its programs. Shortly before his death, he wrote to his boss at the CIA, Dr. Sidney Gottlieb, and summed up his career by saying, ‘It was fun, fun, fun. Where else could a red-blooded American boy lie, kill and cheat, steal, deceive, rape and pillage with the sanction and blessing of the all highest.’”
The film also mentions that Dr. Gottlieb destroyed the records of the mind control programs in 1973. He and many others involved in these projects did not want the public to ever know about the many illegal and immoral activities they had sponsored in their quest of control over the mind. Thankfully, he forgot to destroy the financial records, which contain highly incriminating information. These declassified documents can be ordered by anyone using the information at this link.
Though the CIA denies that the mind control techniques developed in their secretive projects were successful, an abundance of evidence in this film and elsewhere suggests otherwise.

#WikiLeaks “Assange ‘traitor’, show ‘foul’ - The World Tomorrow sparks media frenzy” #MSM #Propaganda (by @RussiaToday)
It was a debut destined to stir up a media storm - the much anticipated show by Julian Assange finally burst onto TV screens around the globe - with controversy not only about the host but his guests as well. Hezbollah leader Hassan Nasrallah, whose identity was kept secret until broadcast - was the first person interviewed by the world’s most prominent whistleblower. RT’s Gayane Chichakyan rates the premiere’s impact.

Nobody in the office of San Francisco Mayor Ed Lee seems willing to take responsibility for a city document which refers to medical marijuana dispensaries as “nuisance retail” and likens them to strip clubs and liquor stores.
The FBI will combine the methods developed after Sept. 11 to combat terrorism, along with old-fashion gumshoe practices, to battle cybercriminals.
"Terrorism remains the FBI’s top priority, but in the not too distant future we anticipate that the cyberthreat will pose the No. 1 threat to our country," FBI Director Robert Mueller said in a March 1 keynote address to the RSA security conference in San Francisco. "We need to apply the lessons of fighting terrorism and apply them to cybercrime."
After the 2001 terrorist attacks, the FBI expanded its joint terrorism task forces that include bureau agents, local and state law enforcement officers and the military to more than 100. “We are developing a similar model to fight cybercrime to build our capabilities as well as those of state and local law enforcement,” Mueller said.
But, Mueller said, proven law enforcement methods will be employed to catch cybercriminals. “We must rely on the traditional capabilities of the FBI: sources and wires,” he said. “We must cultivate the sources necessary to infiltrate criminal online networks, to collect the intelligences, to prevent the next attack and to topple the network from inside.”
Mueller also said he sees terrorists, who employ the Internet to recruit and plan physical attacks, to begin causing digital damage as well. “To date, terrorists have not used the Internet to launch a full-scale cyberattack, but we cannot underestimate their intent,” he said. “In one hacker recruiting video, a terrorist proclaims that cyber warfare will be the warfare of the future.”
The FBI director echoed remarks he made at RSA Conference 2010, calling for cooperation between government and the private sector to share information on cybersecurity threats (see FBI Chief Calls for Business Cooperation). Mueller pointed out that it’s often business that first identities cyberthreats and it shouldn’t fear notifying the FBI when a breach occurs. He backed legislation before Congress that would encourage information sharing between government and business that would protect corporate secrets. Many businesses don’t want to fess up to a breach because it could harm them with stakeholders.
Mueller also called for enactment of a national breach notification law that would supersede 47 separate state laws. A national breach notification law is seen as easing compliance by businesses that operate in multiple states.
