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……

Bust Reveals Government Runs Hacking Groups

I think a lot of us had hoped that LulzSec and Anonymous were working for the good of “the people” but in the back of my mind I’ve always wondered if it was all just a front for the government. Looks like that nagging feeling may have been spot on…..This sucks!

The establishment media has characterized the leader of LulzSec ratting out his hacktivist comrades as betrayal, but the incident reveals something far more sinister – government is responsible for creating and unleashing computer hacker groups.

Anonymous

Hector Xavier Monsegur, said to be the leader of LulzSec, worked for the FBI, according to news reports. He was reportedly arrested in Puerto Rico last June, pleaded guilty to hacking charges, and then began working with the FBI – or so the cover story would have it.

Monsequr, aka Sabu, decided what targets to attack and who would participate in the attacks, more than likely at the direction of this FBI handlers. It is believed he participated in the Anonymous effort to hack HBGary, the security firm that works closely with the CIA, NSA, FBI, and the Pentagon.

Sabu’s Lulz Security, commonly abbreviated as LulzSec, claimed responsibility for taking the CIA website offline. It also attacked Fox News, PBS, Sony, and a number of gamer sites. LulzSec claims to have hacked local InfraGard chapter sites, the organization affiliated with the FBI, and released the emails and passwords of a number of users of senate.gov.

LulzSec and Anonymous attacks have provided the government with an excuse to push their cyber security agenda and propaganda campaign, including the proposal for a “kill switch” that would have allowed Obama to shut down the internet (due to public outrage, the proposal was dropped from a House bill in February).

Government and corporate groups cited LulzSec and Anonymous lawlessness last June to push the so-called Protect IP Act (known as PIPA). The introduction of a House version of the bill, dubbed SOPA (Stop Online Privacy Act), was met with public outrage and widespread activism that forced Congress to reconsider the legislation.

In October, Mother Jones revealed that the FBI is notorious for creating supposed terrorist groups from scratch and then framing patsies in order to claim the government is protecting the United States from terrorists and also breathe life into an otherwise moribund war on mostly nonexistent terrorism.

Sabu’s role as an FBI provocateur working inside LulzSec reveals the government is attempting to do the same in order to push its so-called cybersecurity agenda. The establishment is eager to pass a raft of legislation to closely regulate the internet, strip the medium of its anonymity, and close it down as an activism and alternative media tool.

Now Censoring: Twitter

The world embraced Twitter as a way to get information out quickly, and unfettered. That’s all about to change now that they are introducing new censorship rules. Here’s some of what’s being said on the web now….

“This is very bad news,” tweeted Egyptian activist Mahmoud Salem, who operates under the name Sandmonkey. Later, he wrote, “Is it safe to say that (hash)Twitter is selling us out?”

In China, where activists have embraced Twitter even though it’s blocked inside the country, artist and activist Ai Weiwei tweeted in response to the news: “If Twitter censors, I’ll stop tweeting.”

One often-relayed tweet bore the headline of a Forbes magazine technology blog item: “Twitter Commits Social Suicide”

SOURCE

The web is already up in arms about SOPA, PIPA and the newly discovered ACTA. If you don’t know about ACTA then you better get crackin’ because it’s being deemed a “treaty” and has already been signed!

So after doing some digging in to the records of http://chillingeffects.org and it was clear that the Twitter issue is going to become a two headed dragon if allowed to continue. I was reviewing some of the complaints and came across this.

So here we see a DMCA complaint sent to Twitter because of a tweet in which contains a link to an external website that contains copyrighted materials. No sense it trying to see if the tweet still exists; it’s been removed by Twitter and so begins their censorship.

Not having read the tweet myself, I can only assume that the complaint was accurate; I, nor anyone else, can say for certain that it was true and accurate. So now we have a Twitter user being censored because another, external site, is sharing copyrighted materials.

twitter-censored

Being a DJ myself, as well as a remixer, I can understand the concern about your works being shared, to an extent. To me, this really seems like two things: overkill and a laziness. I say overkill because this Twitter user isn’t the one sharing the files, they are simply pointing them out. Laziness because these companies are relying on internet users, instead of their own army, to find the copyrighted materials and handle them through the correct channels.

The correct way to go about this would have been for the copyright holder to contact the company or site that is hosting the FILES and demand they be removed; they have no business contacting Twitter and having them remove the tweet.

BLACKLIST GOOGLE! Google Is Already Using SOPA-Like Censorship

Even with the DEFEAT (although be it, probably temporarily) of SOPA and PIPA, Google is now enforcing policies in line with those bills. They are now blacklisting legitimate websites from its news aggregator and following government orders to remove material from its search results and You Tube.

google tyranny

Does Google think they own the internet?

So they are now arbitrarily not allowing people to search for, or access, certain websites. Nice right? Publicly, Google criticized SOPA and PIPA but now, despite the fact that those bills have been shelved, they are privately enforcing such policies. What happened to the internet? My kid has a big report to write on Irish immigrants so what web sites will we no longer be able to see by searching Google?

Google owned Youtube is removing videos as I write this, all because of copyright complaints that have been filed. Folks, these are political protest video’s, who’s got a copyright?From Infowars.com,

The number of takedown orders received by Google from authorities based in the United States rose dramatically over the past year, with demands to remove information increasing by 70 per cent. Google complied in removing the material in 63% of the cases.

One such example was You Tube’s compliance with a request from the British government to censor footage of the British Constitution Group’s Lawful Rebellion protest, during which they attempted to civilly arrest Judge Michael Peake at Birkenhead county court.

Google has also targeted our own You Tube channel for termination on numerous occasions merely for posting legitimate news content, such as the Wikileaks Apache helicopter footage, which appears on hundreds of other You Tube channels.

Crucially, Google has for years censored its own search results subject to the mandates of different governments across the world. SOPA and PIPA are merely an effort to codify into US law what is already taking place in more authoritarian countries, with the willing participation of Google itself.

Many other web giants are also moving to censor the Internet, including VeriSign, who recently demanded the power to terminate websites deemed “abusive” with no legal oversight whatsoever.

Public wi-fi systems stationed in airports, train stations, libraries, schools, and workplaces also routinely censor political websites.

Apache helicopter video footage which shows US troops gunning down innocent civilians, who they hell thinks they can claim a copyright of that? Who WANTS copyright of that disgusting, hateful show of tyranny? Luckily (crossing my fingers) none of my video’s have been removed as of now.

Welcome to the police state of the United States folks. Your votes won’t be counted correctly in the presidential elections because the powers that be don’t want change; they don’t want Ron Paul to win so they can keep their tyranny going. Now, Google is a part of that tyranny! Google used to be my main site of choice to search for anything and everything, I’m going to blacklist GOOGLE now and not go there again until they decide to pull their head out of their ass.

Think the internet is free? Think again!

Here are some alternatives to Google:

Startpage.com

dogpile.com

duckduckgo.com

Yebol.com

Excite.com

There’s just a small list to get you started. STOP USING GOOGLE for searching the web. There are also alternatives to youtube, which I have actually been using for some time. They might not have so many fancy features but they certainly are NOT owned by Goolge.

ustream.tv

livestream.com

freedocast.com

I have personally used Livestream and I like it a lot. I may start a movement to delete Youtube accounts, what do you think? Should I do it?
