Cyber Attack on US Banks is an Obvious False Flag – Well DUH!!!

In recent news we have been blasted with all the sorted details of the American banks which have had their websites attacked by hackers but…… With Obama on the cusp of signing his executive order to control the Internet, we can rest assured this is just another false flag and it’s probably been in the works since SOPA (Stop Online Privacy Act) and PIPA (Protect IP Act) failed to be passed.

I ask you, do we not have enough control over our lives already? Do we need more government agencies to watch more of what we are doing? Do we need even more spying on us? My God, enough already!

Are we expected to believe that sophisticated Muslim hacktivists attacked US banks because they were angry about a movie that was produced in America?  That’d be like attacking Afghanistan or Iraq after 15 Saudis supposedly attacked us, ohh wait…that did happen.

Is this really the best story they can come up with?  It was so predictable that it makes it that much more laughable. But the motive being pinned on the pathetic anti-Muslim movie is the real kicker.

It’s sad to see Richard Clark in the video above actually take this seriously.  Talk about an establishment sellout.

I call major bullshit on this story.  It stinks to high heaven.  What do you think?

Excerpt from Infowars.com

Want proof? Well here you go! The F.B.I shut down the DNSChanger servers back in July 2012. With this, they cut off internet access to an estimated 300,000 computers worldwide which were infected with software which essentially took control of them and used them for cyber crime. The lay term is “zombie computers” and these things were being used to continue to spread the malware, to steal all kinds of personal information and you guessed it… To engage in Distributed Denial of Service (DDOS)  attacks which is what has supposedly been happening to some US banks websites.

Basically what a DDOS attack does is flood the banks computer systems with requests for information. Say you have a phone and 5,000 people all begin repeatedly dialing your number. That phone will be ringing off the hook right? Well that’s basically how this type of cyber attack works. The banks servers (the computers that manage their websites) are simply receiving so many “pings” (requests for information) that they become overloaded and hence they slow down or even crash.

Having worked on the back end of a server before I can tell you that there are ways these kinds of things can be thwarted. It involves you actually looking at your logs to see what IP addresses are sending the requests and then blocking them. I realize that on a small scale that wouldn’t take long but come on; their banks for crying out loud!

Basically what I’m saying is that the banks could have done more about this, if it even happened. It seems like this came at the perfect time to push the people of America in to finally agreeing with the US government to spy on us more via the internet and seems to lend credibility to President Obama signing his new executive order. It’s all a little “too perfect” for me to stomach……

More Bank Bailouts In Our Future?

It’s being reported by infowars.com that there may be a new round of bank bail out’s in the works under the guise of QE3.

While Ben Bernanke’s announcement that the Federal Reserve will embark on an open ended scheme to purchase $40 billion in mortgage-backed securities each month has been touted by the establishment media as the beginning of “QE3″ it is in fact nothing less than another banker bailout in disguise.

While many have rightly attacked the Fed’s policy of printing money as a band aid that does little to solve the economy in the long term, this new move isn’t even about that. The policy announced yesterday will merely see the Fed use taxpayer money to purchase more bad debt in the form of junk mortgage-backed derivative based securities that have been sold over and over again.

This has nothing to do with getting the economy going again and will only serve as yet another huge wealth transfer from the middle class to the elite.

Read full article

In light of this information I decided to go see which banks that previously received a bailout have actually paid back what they received. You can view a full list HERE but we’ll cover some of the banks here as well. This is just a small portion of the banks that are in default right now….

Fannie Mae still owes $90,617,000,000
Freedie Mac still owes $51,199,000,000
AIG still owes $2,609,686,768
General Motors still owes $27,197,156,843
GMAC (now Ally Financial) still owes $10,752,090,618
Chrysler still owes $1,315,061,737
CIT Group still owes $2,286,312,500

If an American owes back taxes you better bet the IRS will be seizing anything and everything they own in order to recoup that money but what’s been the penalty for these banks? Our incredibly thoughtful government never bothered to stipulate ANY penalties therefore there are NONE! They can just keep right on doing business, paying their CEO’s billions in bonuses and thumb the American public that had their money stolen in order to ensure the rich would continue their wild spending. Absolutely disgusting!

National Movement Launched To Impeach Obama

Well it’s about time! The man can’t produce any real documents to even show he exists, let alone should be president!

The five core reasons why Obama should be impeached

A new national movement has been launched to impeach President Obama based around five core issues which clearly demonstrate how Obama has flagrantly violated the Constitution.

The campaign, backed by director, producer, actor and writer Sean Stone, is a follow-up to North Carolina Republican Walter Jones’ efforts to bring the administration to account for launching unconstitutional wars without the authorization of Congress. Jones’ recently introduced resolution states that such actions represent “an impeachable high crime and misdemeanor.”

The five core reasons for impeachment proceedings to be launched can be summarized as follows;

1) Despite promising otherwise, Barack Obama committed U.S. military resources to overthrow Libyan leader Colonel Gaddafi without any kind of congressional authorization whatsoever and without citing any evidence that Libya under Gaddafi was a threat to the security of the United States. Furthermore, Obama brazenly undermined the power of Congress by insisting his authority came from the United Nations Security Council and that Congressional approval was not necessary. “I don’t even have to get to the Constitutional question,” Obama churlishly remarked.

2) On New Years Eve 2011, Obama signed into law the National Defense Authorization Act which includes provisions that permit the abduction and military detention without trial of U.S. citizens. Despite Obama claiming he would not use the provisions to incarcerate U.S. citizens, it was his administration that specifically demanded these powers be included in the final NDAA bill.

3) The passage of the Obamacare bill, under which Americans will be forced to buy health insurance, is clearly anathema to the Constitution. “The individual mandate is unprecedented and exceeds Congress’s power to regulate interstate commerce. If it is allowed to stand, Congress will be able to impose any kind of economic mandate as part of any kind of national regulatory scheme,” writes Ilya Shapiro, a Senior Fellow in Constitutional Studies, Cato Institute.

4) Obama’s role in the economic looting of America since he took office is unprecedented. Specifically, Obama violated the Constitution’s Takings and Due Process Clauses when he bullied the secured creditors of automaker Chrysler into accepting 30 cents on the dollar while politically connected labor unions and preferential others received better deals.

5) Finally, Obama’s use of signing statements shows his desire to continue in the vein of George W. Bush and rule by executive fiat. This is a direct violation of Article II of the Constitution.

You can support this effort to get political momentum behind starting the impeachment process against Obama by forwarding this article and video to your network on Facebook, Twitter, You Tube and every other platform of communication.

If the makers of Kony 2012 can receive international viral coverage for putting out a film that was little more than a veiled call for another unconstitutional invasion, this call to impeach Obama deserves equal attention.

Bill Allows IRS to Deny Americans Right to Travel

Senator Barbara Boxer’s MAP-21 (Moving Ahead for Progress in the 21st Century Act) is headed to the House after clearing the Senate last month. Boxer’s bill allows the federal government to revoke the passports of citizens the IRS claims owe taxes.

“There is no requirement that the tax payer be guilty of or even charged with tax evasion, fraud, or any criminal offense — only that the citizen is alleged to owe the IRS back taxes of $50,000 or more,” reports The Daily Economist.

In other words, the Fourth Amendment will become irrelevant in many taxes cases if this legislation makes it through the House. MAP-21 does, however, face opposition by some Republicans.passport denied

In order to blunt criticism, Boxer’s bill is being portrayed in standard class warfare fashion – according to CBS and others, the law will be used to go after wealthy tax scofflaws who owe the IRS $50,000 or more, so the average citizen need not worry.

In fact, the IRS routinely leans on the little guy and small business owners. For instance, in 2010 the owner of a car wash in Sacramento, California, was harassed by the IRS after the government said he owed four cents in back taxes (which became $200 after three years of penalties and fees).

The IRS is also used by the establishment as a political weapon, as various Tea Party organizations around the country recently learned.

“In January and February of this year, the Internal Revenue Service began sending out letters to various local Tea Parties across the country,” writes Colleen Owens. The federal wealth confiscation agency asked the political groups to identify their volunteers and donors. “What possible reason would the IRS have for Tea Parties to ‘name your donors’ when said donations are non-deductible?” Owens notes (most Tea Party organizations are nonprofit 501(c)(4) and donations are not deductible).

Chief Justice John Marshall once observed that “the power to tax involves the power to destroy” and that is precisely what the government often attempts to do, as former Florida House Speaker Marco Rubio discovered in 2010.

The IRS is no longer strictly about taxes. “Top IRS officials have been working with Democrats on Capitol Hill to determine how the agency will enforce President Obama’s new health care law. Republican lawmakers estimate the legislation will require the hiring of many thousands of new (and armed) tax enforcement agents,” Fox News reported last month. “Under the new law, the IRS is required to fine taxpayers thousands of dollars if they do not purchase health insurance. In order for the government to enforce compliance, tax authorities will need information, for the first time, about people’s health care. Collecting that data will require more IRS personnel.”

In short, the IRS will act as an enforcer – armed to the teeth – for Obamacare, that is if it is not ruled to be unconstitutional by the Supreme Court in June.

The IRS is but one component of an increasingly tyrannical and militarized federal government.

“The Department of Homeland Security recently stoked concern by contracting a company to provide them with 450 million rounds of hollow point bullets. Now the federal agency is also purchasing bullet-proof checkpoint booths that include ‘stop and go’ lights,” writes Paul Joseph Watson today. “The purpose behind the bullet proof booths is unknown, but the DHS has publicly announced that it plans to increase the number of unannounced checkpoints manned by TSA VIPR teams and other federal agents beyond the 9,300 that were set up last year alone.”

The IRS move on supposed tax scofflaws by denying them the ability to travel abroad is part of a larger effort to control the movement of citizens in the same way citizens in the Soviet Union were forced under propiska laws to ask the government for permission to travel – and exiled dissidents were forced to live in isolated far-flung towns under virtual house arrest.

As we noted in 2011, an internal passport for Americans is codified under the December 2004 Intelligence Reform and Terrorism Prevention Act. If fully implemented, Ron Paul has warned, it will allow “the government to establish a Soviet-style internal passport system” that would subject “every citizen to surveillance and screening points” of the sort the DHS is now expanding across America.

Everything Is Spying On You

I recall reading “1984” back when I was in high school and thinking “My God, what kind of society is this?” I was naive back then, not really seeing what was going on around me. I was blinded by the ideals I was being taught in school; the idea that this country isn’t a bully and that it’s a great place to be. Boy, was I ever wrong!

If we keep burying our heads in the sand, sacrificing all of our freedoms to be “safe” we will have nothing left but an out of control government. We’re on the way there now but it’s up to us to stop it. Question authority and think for yourself, stop buying new technology, can your own food, stockpile guns and ammo, build a mega first aid kit, take charge of your life, protect your family, bug in, bug out, be a prepper, get crazy with survival, build a solar generator, vote Ron Paul (though it doesn’t matter anyway), build a fence around your home, buy gas masks, make ice from water and fertilizer, coupon……. Do whatever you have to but don’t GIVE IN!

Forget 1984, the ‘Internet of things’ is the ubiquitous surveillance grid

George Orwell was merely scratching the surface with telescreens – the 21st century home as a surveillance hub will outstrip anything you read about in 1984. From dishwashers to light bulbs, so-called “smart homes” will allow industry and the government to spy ubiquitously on every aspect of your existence.

CIA chief David Petraeus has hailed the “Internet of things” as a transformational boon for “clandestine tradecraft”. In other words, it will soon be easier than ever before to keep tabs on the population since everything they use will be connected to the web, with total disregard for privacy considerations. The spooks won’t have to plant a bug in your home, you will be doing it for them.

“Items of interest will be located, identified, monitored, and remotely controlled through technologies such as radio-frequency identification, sensor networks, tiny embedded servers, and energy harvesters — all connected to the next-generation internet using abundant, low-cost, and high-power computing,” said Petraeus.

Soon you will have to live like a reclusive luddite if you hope to escape the new panopticon of surveillance that will be gratefully lapped up by the masses as a necessary sacrifice for convenience and cutting edge technology.

Google has announced it will use the ambient background noise of a person’s environment, via their cell phone or computer microphone, to spy on their activities in order to direct targeted advertising at them.

– Microsoft X-Box Kinect games device has a video camera and a microphone that records speech. Microsoft has stated that users “should not expect any level of privacy concerning your use of the live communication features,” and the company “may access or disclose information about you, including the content of your communications.”

– The latest range of digital televisions also have a built-in HD camera, microphones and facial and speech recognition, which are all connected to the Internet. Companies like Samsung have failed to even craft a privacy policy that applies to the devices, meaning its open season on snooping and data harvesting.

– The modern LED “eco-friendly” light bulb is also a two-way communications device. Ceiling lights currently being installed in offices and government buildings “transmit data to specially equipped computers on desks below by flickering faster than the eye can see.”

Outside street lights are also being changed to new “smart” versions so they can be used for “homeland security applications”. These devices are fitted with surveillance cameras, can broadcast government announcements, and also have the ability to record conversations.

– Smart meters, now set to become compulsory in many areas, wirelessly communicate with utility companies details about each home’s energy consumption, as well as emitting electromagnetic radiation. Health concerns have prompted some local authorities to allow residents to opt-out, but in other areas the meters are mandatory.

– Forget the government having to implant a chip in your forehead, the modern smart phone, owned by the vast majority of the population, does just as good a job. Five years ago we warned that the first incarnation of the iPhone contained a backdoor spyware module that allowed hackers or the government to conduct secret surveillance of the user. Cell phone surveillance is now ubiquitous. Google was also recently caught tracking the surfing habits of iPhone users via a code that disables the Safari browser’s privacy settings.

– Google’s attitude towards privacy also came under scrutiny when it was discovered that the company was spying on WiFi network data in violation of the Federal Wiretap Act as it gathered images for its Streetview program.

– The most obvious example of all is the Internet itself. ISPs have announced they will keep records of websites visited for at least 12 months, along with details of private communications. This figure is constantly increasing, with the FBI now pushing for ISPs to retain such information for years.

Since the vast majority of people have already taken the decision to sacrifice their privacy for convenience, all of the technologies listed above will be used to spy on individuals and harvest data which will then be sold to big corporations. The vast majority simply do not care. They value the novelty of a fridge being able to tell you when you’re out of milk and automatically ordering more via the Internet more than they do their own privacy.

Department Of Justice Wants Court To Keep Google/NSA Partnership Secret

Google is nothing more than another good idea gone wrong; greed is what kills everything that is good!Where in the heck is the “transparency” that Obama promised us during his last presidential campaign??

Court hearing scheduled for next week in ongoing effort by privacy group to expose details of working relationship

The Department of Justice will ask a federal court to uphold the secrecy that surrounds the working relationship between Google and the National Security Agency in a hearing that is scheduled for next week.

Privacy watchdog group The Electronic Privacy Information Center (EPIC) is returning to court once again in an effort to disclose more information regarding the widely publicized partnership between the spy agency and the search engine giant.

EPIC is suing to obtain documents that detail the relationship, and will appeal against the NSA’s so-called “Glomar” response, claiming it “could neither confirm nor deny” the existence of any information about its relations with Google, because “such a response would reveal information about NSA’s functions and activities.”

The NSA’s response stated that the agency “works with a broad range of commercial partners and research associations” in order to oversee the security of important information systems, but did not provide any further detail.

The issue rose to prominencein January 2010 following a highly sophisticated and targeted cyber attack on the corporate infrastructure of Google and some twenty other large US companies.

The attack was blamed on the Chinese government, prompting Google to embrace a collaboration with the federal agency in charge of global electronic surveillance.

Anonymous sources informed The Washington Post at the time that “the alliance is being designed to allow the two organizations to share critical information”, adding that the agreement will not allow the NSA access to users’ search details or e-mails.

The DOJ is backing NSA’s Glomar response, as The Legal Times reports:

DOJ’s legal team said that acknowledging whether NSA and Google formed a partnership from a cyber attack would illuminate whether the government “considered the alleged attack to be of consequence for critical U.S. government information systems.”

DOJ said media reports about the alleged Google partnership with NSA do not constitute official acknowledgement.

“If NSA determines that certain security vulnerabilities or malicious attacks pose a threat to U.S. government information systems, NSA may take action,” DOJ Civil Division lawyers wrote in a brief.

In its own opening brief, EPIC argues that records the NSA holds on the subject are not exempt from public disclosure under FOIA request.

“Communications from Google to the NSA do not implicate the agency’s functions and activities, and are therefore not exempt from disclosure.” the brief states.

“Further, some records responsive to EPIC’s FOIA Request concern NSA activities that may fall outside the scope of the agency’s authority. These records are not exempt from disclosure.” it continues.

EPIC believes that any burgeoning partnership between Google and the government spy force responsible for warrantless monitoring of Americans’ phone calls and e-mails in the wake of 9/11 raises significant privacy concerns.

“Google provides cloud-based services to consumers, not critical infrastructure services to the government,” EPIC attorney Marc Rotenberg said, noting that the group’s records request does not seek documents about NSA’s role to secure government computer networks.

A three-judge panel of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit will preside over the hearing, scheduled for March 20.

Google’s partnership with the intelligence network is not new. As we reported in late 2006, An ex-CIA agent Robert David Steele has claimed sources told him that CIA seed money helped get the company off the ground

Speaking to the Alex Jones Show, Steele elaborated on previous revelations by making it known that the CIA helped bankroll Google at its very inception. Steele named Google’s CIA point man as Dr. Rick Steinheiser, of the Office of Research and Development.

“I think Google took money from the CIA when it was poor and it was starting up and unfortunately our system right now floods money into spying and other illegal and largely unethical activities, and it doesn’t fund what I call the open source world,” said Steele, citing “trusted individuals” as his sources for the claim.

“They’ve been together for quite a while,” added Steele.

The NSA’s involvement with Google should be treated as highly suspect, given the agency’s track record and its blatant disregard for the Fourth Amendment.

set of documents obtained by the Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF) in June 2007 revealed that US telco AT&T allowed the NSA to set up a ‘secret room’ in its offices to monitor internet traffic.

The discovering prompted a lawyer for an AT&T engineer to allege that “within two weeks of taking office, the Bush administration was planning a comprehensive effort of spying on Americans” That is BEFORE 9/11, before the nation was embroiled in the freedom stripping exercise commonly known as the “war on terror” had even begun.

In late 2007, reports circulated that the NSA had increasing control over SSL, now called Transport Layer Security, the cryptographic protocol that provides secure communications on the internet for web browsing, e-mail, instant messaging, and other data transfers.

In 2008, Google denied that it had any role in the NSA’s “terrorist” surveillance program, after first refusing to say if they have provided users private data to the federal government under the warrantless wiretapping initiative.

However, it is clear where Google’s interests lie given that the company is supplying the software, hardware and tech support to US intelligence agencies in the process of creating a vast closed source database for global spy networks to share information.

The government supply arm of Google has also reportedly entered into a number of other contracts, details of which it says it cannot share.

Google’s approach to privacy also came under scrutiny more recently when it was discovered that the company was essentially vacuuming up WiFi network data as it gathered images for its Streetview program.

Google insisted that the practice was a mistake, even though information published in January 2010 revealed that the data collection program was a very deliberate effort to assemble as much information as possible about U.S. residential and business WiFi networks.

 

 

YouTube Restricts Video Of Engineer Proving How Useless TSA Scanners Are

This guy has the goods folks! He is able to get an empty metal container thru the TSA’s full body scanner at two separate airports! This video is important because it shows the true incompetence of our government officials, it validates the worthlessness of the TSA and it demonstrates how useless the full body scanners truly are. Leave it up to Google to decide to censor this video because it openly criticizes our government!

Man walked through radiation firing machines with metal objects knowing he would not be stopped

Google/YouTube has placed restrictions on yet another video that exposes the fraudulent claims of the TSA and highlights how the federal agency’s security theatre is part of a wider social manipulation agenda.

Engineer Jon Corbett of the popular blog TSA Out of Our Pants! posted a video yesterday that demonstrates how the TSA’s radiation firing body scanners can easily be bypassed.

The video shows Corbett carrying a metal case through the scanner, away from his body in his side pocket. Corbett explains that because metallic objects appear as black on the image the scanners produce, the machines do not pick up such objects if they are obscured by the background, which is also black.

Watch the video (via a NON-YOUTUBE LINK!):

Corbett has been rallying against the TSA for some time and has had several run ins with agents at airports. Corbett was also the first person in the country to sue the TSA for invasion of privacy. His case is still ongoing and is headed to the U.S. Supreme Court.

“The scanners are now effectively worthless, as anyone can beat them with virtually no effort.” Corbett writes on his blog. “The TSA has been provided this video in advance of it being made public to give them an opportunity to turn off the scanners and revert to the metal detectors. I personally believe they now have no choice but to turn them off.” he adds.

Within hours of the video being uploaded, blogs and news sites, including Yahoo News and the Mail Online had begun to pick up an the video, saying it was sure to go viral.

Now, despite the fact that the video contains no nudity, violence, abuse or other explicit content, YouTube has placed it behind an age restriction wall, meaning anyone who wants to view it on YouTube has to login or sign up for an account and verify their age.

“This video is not intended to teach anyone how to commit criminal acts, nor is intended to help “the terrorists” — if I could figure this out, I’m sure they’ve long figured it out, and by exposing it to the public, we now have an opportunity to correct it.” Corbett writes on his blog.

This means that the video has been restricted for no reason other than the fact that it is critical of the TSA and the government.

Corbett also explains in the video that multiple experts have already pointed out that the scanners can be easily bypassed and are next to useless at detecting explosive material and even metallic objects, meaning that standard metal detectors are more effective than the costly and potentially health threatening radiation firing scanners that are being rolled out in greater numbers across the country.

The same type of censorship has previously been applied by YouTube to other videos that have been critical of the TSA.

Last month, Mike Adams of Natural News produced an animated video that highlighted how the TSA is using invasive enhanced pat downs, even on children, purely as a show of power and even a form of punishment for those opting out of the body scanners. Within hours the video had been restricted by YouTube.
