INTERNET GATEKEEPERS: THEIR MISSION? ELECTION MEDDLING

Dear readers.  It makes no difference whether a person is right or left when it comes to freedom of the press, or of speech. That is not the issue.  Many know the famous case explaining that people have the right to speak what they want, however they do not have the right to…”yell, fire in a crowed theater.”  It is obvious that even I, being as outspoken as I am with regard to politics and ideas, would never endanger hundreds of people in a theater by falsely yelling fire.  Yet, if I did, there would be a stampede and people could die and I would go to jail, maybe for life.

     Well, today there are a few people in our world, and a very select group in Silicon Valley who are yelling fire and are endangering the world and the people’s play book that was penned by the founders and it is called the First Amendment to the U.S. Constitution.  These same people who are yelling fire are on a mission to undermine the most sacred and basic freedoms that a nation could ever have and that is freedom of expression with regard to speech, the press, and religion.  This is America’s cornerstone which was laid so that these key freedoms would  act as a protection against tyranny. Yet, people who are not free, wish for a time when they would have similar protections as America, but they do not.  It is because powerful armed forces prevent that society from choosing unalienable rights.

     Now then, what if a nation such as ours is exploited to where less freedom and great bondage’s surface for the sake of an ideology that limits the free social interchange between people on the internet where censorship rules because of a second or a third party?  This kind of meddling and tampering then becomes like watching the Super Bowl while looking at only commercials and not seeing the endgame, but all the while, millions of dollars are going to the players and the owners of the two teams.     

   Well, everybody, we’re now in the Internet/Gatekeeper Super Bowl and there are no referees.  So as a nation, America as we know it will fall if “we the people” allow the icons of the internet to succeed. There is a clear and present danger when the free flow of information, ideas and opinions are blocked and censored by biased persons who are in control and not neutral  So what is the danger?  Just ask someone who may still be alive today who saw the book burnings in Germany and saw those persons who were shipped in trains off to the Nazi concentration camps and the gas chambers.  Let us never forget that Red China under Mao had its own massacres of a different kind where 70 million people were murdered and to this day China does not have a free flow of ideas and speech and this fact is getting worse everyday.

     Are we not the remnant that fled the kings of old and still adheres to that same eternal calling which chooses wisdom and not the wide road to destruction but the narrow road to freedom which had been established upon that rock in 1620 in the small town of Plymouth Massachusetts?  Let not that rock be moved lest the foundation of America falters, and if it be, how great would be the fall.

“I shall be telling this with a sigh
Somewhere ages and ages hence:
Two roads diverged in a wood, and I—
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.”

Are We Still Free? REFLECTIONS ON INDEPENDENCE AND THE DECLARATION THEREOF

“The EPA is telling landowners they the EPA are prosecutor, defender, jury and judge where property is concerned.  If you for instance have an indentation in the land and water would accumulate while it was raining, the EPA has and will exercise complete jurisdiction of that property.   The EPA has taken the position they are ultimate owner of all property and the title holders rights are subject to the wishes of the EPA.”

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

REFLECTIONS ON INDEPENDENCE AND THE DECLARATION THEREOF

From the Declaration of Independence:

“We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.–That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, —That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to affect their Safety and Happiness.”

1441183_401318466665654_1752838926_nWe were, according to the Declaration of Independence granted certain rights by the creator that are unalienable rights.  Amongst these unalienable rights are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.  It is important to note that these unalienable rights are not restricted to these three, but these three are included in the total.  Unalienable rights are rights not given by the government or men but are from the creator.  Therefore these rights are not be taken from us or restricted by the government or men in any way.  Included in the total of the unalienable rights would be many of the rights reserved for the people in the Bill of Rights.  These are rights such as freedom of speech, freedom of religion not freedom from religion, freedom to bear arms, freedom of the press, freedom of assembly and so forth.  These rights are essential in a free society.  In every totalitarian state, it is these rights that are restricted and limited first.

Our founding fathers told us, when any government becomes destructive of these rights, we are to alter or abolish that government and form a new one.  This is a very serious charge we were given.  As we look at the happenings and events in recent history, the question we must ask is have we reached such a time?  Doing a quick exam, I would suggest we are coming closer and closer to that time if it has in fact not been reached.  At the very least we must have an open and honest discussion that transcends spin and political correctness.

The Village Composed of Missing Idiots Comes To Power

8 Comments

What the Idiots are up to this week.

One knows they reside in a country where apparently the saying years ago by the current Secretary Of State “It takes a village to raise a child” crashes into another of my favorite sayings “Somewhere a village is missing its idiot” to create: The Village Composed of Missing Idiots

I present to the reader my proof:

No helmet? That’s a $275 ticket

— even if you’re not on wheels

Malfatto noticed Officer Truscott writing a group of teenagers citations for not wearing helmets and thought it would be a good chance to use the flat part of the park to continue teaching his son to skate without any other people around. His son was equipped with a helmet, elbow pads, kneepads and wrist guards. More

Sen. McCain’s S.3081 would eliminate several Constitutional protections allowing Government to arbitrarily pick up Americans on mere suspicion

OP-ED by: Dan scott

 

Does Palin Support McCain’s bill—Indefinite Detention of Citizens On Mere Suspicion?

On March 4, 2010, Sen. John McCain introduced S.3081, The “Enemy Belligerent Interrogation, Detention, and Prosecution Act of 2010.”

Sen. McCain’s S.3081 would eliminate several Constitutional protections allowing Government to arbitrarily pick up Americans on mere suspicion—with no probable cause. Your political opinions and statements made against U.S. Government could be used by Authorities to deem you a “hostile” “Enemy Belligerent” to cause your arrest and indefinite detention. S.3081 is so broadly written innocent anti-war protesters and Tea Party Groups might be arrested and detained just for attending demonstrations. More

Internet fuels rise in number of jailed journalists

Leave a comment

Online journalists/bloggers are being jailed in increasing numbers worldwide. Lest you think it only happens [over there], read this article from The Committee to Protect Journalists.

Internet fuels rise in number of jailed journalists

http://cpj.org/reports/2006/12/imprisoned-06.php

“The United States has imprisoned two journalists without charge or trial: Associated Press photographer Bilal Hussein, now held for eight months in Iraq without due process; and Al-Jazeera cameraman Sami al-Haj, jailed five years and now held at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba.

“In Cuba and in China, journalists are often jailed after summary trials and held in miserable conditions far from their families. But the cruelty and injustice of imprisonment is compounded where there is zero due process and journalists slip into oblivion. In Eritrea, the worst abuser in this regard, there is no check on authority and it is unclear whether some jailed journalists are even alive,” Simon added.”
