The Bureau of Land Management is scrubbing their trail on the internet

4 Comments

After NBC News wrote about the Bureau of Land Management featuring a photo of a coal bed at the top of their website, the BLM changed it… to now feature this photo of an oil & gas pipeline.

The Bureau of Land Management is scrubbing most of its links off of the internet, and in doing so, erasing much of its history from public view.

Many of the blm.gov links that are still remaining on the internet at this point say “page not found,” or the links are no longer cached.

The BLM also suddenly removed state and district websites. Instead, you will now find “landing pages” that direct you to only one main Bureau of Land Management website. (You can look at the new BLM website HERE.)

I called a BLM Public Affairs Specialist to ask some questions about the defunct websites and links. This person said in the past there were about 90,000 pages (and then a bit later stated that it could possibly be only about 60,000 pages) of BLM content on the internet, but that all of these pages couldn’t be maintained or updated, and weren’t centralized. This person said the BLM’s prior content management system was outdated.

Most importantly, this person also said there were now standards to reduce the amount (of pages/content). More

Gutenberg Press1The Recreated Johann Gutenberg Press International Printing Museum, Carson, California

The printing revolution, was without a doubt, the main catalyst behind the Renaissance of Europe along with the Age of Enlightenment. Apart from the early periods of painstaking handwritten papers and scrolls, the invention of the Gutenberg printing press catapulted a new era of mass communications into orbit, which began in the 1440’s. Johann Gutenberg’s primary objective was a printing press that would mass produce the Holy Bible. Yet, this remarkable invention also brought a mountain of additional old and new knowledge to the ends of the earth which had never been read by most people in the history of the world.

The relatively unrestricted circulation of information and also any revolutionary and philosophical ideas, began to cross borders and oceans and opened the eyes of millions who had for centuries been either living in the dark ages or had been subjects to rogue political and religious orders that lorded their authority over the masses for centuries on end, but for the sake their own power, control and money. And for those who were either lords, kings or priests, the new “information age” of newspapers and books threatened not only the elite’s comfort zone, but their own authority which they exercised upon the people. Thus, Kings, Emperors, and the Church of Rome, sought ways to deal with the increasing literacy rate that was now muddying the waters of secular, political and religious doctrinal beliefs. As a consequence, and which may be of great interest to many today is this. These royal elite’s then devised a culture of censorship which in effect guarded their agendas and was very similar to what our own mainstream media is presently doing today, whether it be in America or any other country in the modern world.

Historically, one example of the early examples of censorship occurred in the early period during the reign of the German Emperor Charles V (1500–1558) At that time, censorship was primarily driven by the Protestant Reformation which gave rise to a flood of pamphlets and contentious and argumentative texts which raised tensions among the population of the Holy Roman Empire of the German Nation. The primary aim of censorship which followed saw resolutions passed by various Imperial entities in order to suppress these publications.

Two aspects of living intertwine their way into my life on a regular basis : good Art and great Farming. A feeding of the soul along with nurturing of ones body – the basis of a pretty good life.

For the first I can recommend Canadian Robert Bateman as a Master Artist of depth, breadth and originality. Be prepared to sink into his world of detail and, through further investigation, come away amazed.  Not only does he express beauty in his works, but he lives a beautiful life contributing to his community through development of programs designed to educate and protect the natural world he lives in.

For the Second I recommend the humble seed.  If the reader is not familiar with the technical definition of what a seed is, head on over to Wiki for the various -isms, -ologies or (goodness) even the -tyledons. I prefer to consider the seed a hope, a dream, a miracle. When carefully considered breeding is planned, the most glorious varieties of sustenance to gut and glory to the palate are achieved.

What instantly springs to mind combining the best of both Art and Farming are tomatoes. Specifically the Green Zebra created by Tom Wagner in the early ’80s. If one is a “foodie” of any level, the introduction of this open-pollinated cultivar cannot be discounted. Sought by home chefs and professionals alike, the Green Zebra entered into main stream culture at local markets and fine retailers such as Whole Foods. With its arrival, the populace realized that tomatoes could be more than red-globular-cardboard cut outs picked unripe, gassed and shipped to the masses at market to be sliced into rigid forms draped across insipid greens and deemed a “dinner salad”.

FCC passed new rules — written by corporations — that will end Net Neutrality

8 Comments

BREAKING: Minutes ago, the FCC passed new rules — written by corporations — that will end Net Neutrality.
For the first time in history, the U.S. government approved corporate censorship of the Internet, putting the future of online free speech at risk. Unbelievably, the person leading the charge was Obama appointee Julius Genachowski.
This violates President Obama’s campaign promise to protect Net Neutrality, but some media are reporting the corporate spin that this is a “Net Neutrality compromise.” It’s not — there’s no such thing as half a First Amendment. We need to set the record straight.
If you’re on Facebook, click here to spread the word.
By sharing, you can help us spread the top 3 reasons the rules passed today are a giveaway to big corporations and break Obama’s promise:
  1. They enshrine different rules for wired and wireless Internet — allowing big corporations to censor on your mobile phone
  2. They allow corporations to set up tollbooths online, stifling new innovators like the next YouTube who can’t pay the fees the old, crusty corporations can pay
  3. For the first time, they embrace a “public Internet” for regular people vs. a “private Internet” with all the new innovations for corporations who pay more — ending the Internet as we know it
A more detailed explanation is here. Please pass this email to your friends so they know not to believe the corporate spin.
Thanks for being a bold progressive,

Censoring the Internet: S.3804

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

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.

Infowars’ War on the Truth

luke_deesSince sometime last year, I have been aware of the truth about Alex Jones, from his betrayal of John Gray to the fact that GCN – for which he is the main on-air talent  – is an ABC affiliate, owned by billionaire Ted Anderson.

Having become aware of this, I’ve made it part of my mission to awaken his audience to these facts and to the fact that the so-called “alternative media” that Jones pretends to lead is to the so-called “mainstream media” what the Democrats are to the Republicans. In other words, the media – “mainstream” and “alternative,” alike – is owned and controlled by the same interests and is but another example of the elite’s centuries-old control of society via seemingly opposing interests and groups that covertly share the same agenda. It is, in short, a false dichotomy, used to control all factions at once.

Yesterday, in response to pro-Jones and pro-Ron Paul comments posted to articles on Infowars, I left some comments of my own and this time I included links to images of Ron Paul and Alex Jones both flashing the manu cornuto, or “horned hand” sign – the international sign of greeting between luciferians, which is also being used in public, increasingly, by leaders of the New World Order. Whether one believes in the supernatural or not, it is a certainty that the NWO elite do and that their Babylonian “mystery religion” is at the heart of their actions. In any case, one has to ask why it is Alex Jones and Ron Paul – supposed “Christians” and leaders of the “patriot movement” – are flashing the same hand sign used by NWO leaders and minions all over the world.
