There’s a full court press on against the Internet with Senate Bill 3804; another thinly veiled attempt to regulate and control the Web’s content to “protect” us that would open the door for ‘Net news orgs. and  blogs to come under watchful wonk eyes already at work at major MSM outlets like the New York Times and London Guardian as reader comment censors. 

Gosh, Mr. Bill, how will we find incriminating statements, videos, and investigative pieces about the vampires sucking the globe dry if they succeed in censoring the ‘Net? 

Wait! I know! Maybe newspapers and magazines will investigate and print these things? No? 

Well then our network and cable television channels will show clips and videos, just like they do on YouTube! No? 

You mean S. 3804’s attempt at controlling the net will be used like a giant digital eraser. . .and. . . “sensitive or disruptive things” could be gone? Just like that? Like, any lying, thieving, cheating, corrupt elected official can now be made “squeaky clean” on the net and the marionettes who control them can disappear into the shadows again? Like that? 

Senate Bill 3804 is a disaster; a free speech attack no lucid person can defend.  

The bill allows for closing down sites. Problem is, they’ll just reappear. Think quicksilver and tweezers. Caveat emptor. Bite the gold piece before you put it in your pocket. 

They don’t get it. Oz keeps trying to throttle the ‘Net’ because it makes them  uncomfortable when someone or something keeps trumpeting their schemes, scams, cons, and lies.  And discouraged because it was so easy before the Internet to control public perceptions.

Now comes another try for another cover to pass a set of laws to “regulate” the ‘Net. How about this: Let’s tell the users “. . .we’re preventing valuable piracy losses.” Yes! That’s it!  They’ll believe that! 

Oz has no other choice except to attack the net. Exposure of their hoaxes (Climategate) and premeditated catastrophes (9/11) and so-called “wars on terrorists and assorted boogeymen,”(invasions of Iraq and Iran), use of depleted uranium ammunition and ordnance (that irradiates and contaminates select landscapes and populations where it’s used), hyping contaminated vaccines on an unsuspecting public (that caused hundreds of still births in pregnant women) for a “pandemic” that didn’t exist; trumpeting genetically modified seeds and food (that sterilize and cause medical complications for lab animals tested with the stuff) without safety tests or labeling for humans. . . 

Yeah. I’d be trying to shut these revelations down, too, if I were in their shoes. 

Got to be traumatic, though, having the propaganda controls maneuvered away from you as you look on in horror. Scrutiny like this can be. . .well. . .stressful. Even brutal. 

Senate Bill 3804 isn’t about trademarks or trade secrets or copyright protection or saving jobs. 

It’s about controlling world propaganda. 

Of late, nothing seems to be working for Oz. They’re desperately trying to keep the great unwashed from knowing the truth about things but, it’s like trying to stop raindrops or snowflakes in its present configuration. Can’t be done less you flip the Internet switch for the world. Bless their little dark hearts they keep trying, though, because control of world and American opinion with their MSM propaganda outlets has also slipped from their slimy hands and onto a place called the Internet and the valid information there now has them by the throat; especially so since Copenhagen and their very own Climategate. 

Couldn’t have happened to a nicer group. 

Thus the marionettes are left with their Washington electeds, themselves, their agenda, and their lies.

The great unwashed have the Internet and its counter information. 

And the fly-overs now know things like the blind eye Washington and Oz have turned on veterans coming home with “GWS” which they’re now trying publicly to associate with “brain injuries” (which would prohibit veterans—anyone with a “mental condition”—from purchasing a deer rifle, shotgun, handgun), and not the radiation sickness it is.  Plus things like open borders and banksters looting the treasury in broad daylight, pausing only to flip Americans the bird as they watch in disbelief with noses pressed against the windows; socialized health care; unconstitutional mandates, unread bills, unknown executive orders of all stripes with nary a peep from congress or their controlled propaganda outlets (aka the “press,” or MSM). 

What, me worry? 

The good news is it’s all out on the table now. On the Internet. 

The Combating Online Infringement and Counterfeits Act (S.3804) was introduced in the Senate Judiciary Committee and shilled to “. . .stop online piracy. “ 

It won’t. All it will do if it passes is provide the boys behind the curtain some temporary “legal” cover to shut down law abiding thorn-in-their-side-sites they decide need to be “black listed” under this bill.   

That’s the real purpose of the legislation. 

Better they adjust to the ‘Net like everyone else has, move on down the road, and let the cow chips fall where they will. 

It’s too late to slam the barn door.
