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……

Latest From the Hill: Congress Criminalizes the Right to Free Assembly

I told my daughter about this and she was screaming “Let’s go protest right now!”.

Strips Basic Protections of First Amendment

It seems like every day brings us one step closer to a totalitarian police state, and today is no exception.

The Daily Crux and Economic Policy Journal have reported on a little known bill that was overwhelmingly approved by the House of Representatives (H.R. 347 vote tally388-3) and the Senate (S.1794 passed with unanimous consent, no voting records were kept of which Senators approved).

The Federal Restricted Buildings and Grounds Improvement Act of 2011 essentially strips Americans of their right to protest and assemble in government buildings or on public or private grounds where events of “national significance” are taking place. first amendment

The summary of the bill clearly outlines the direct attack on our First Amendment protections which allow for peaceable assembly and public redress of grievances against our government or elected officials within it:

Federal Restricted Buildings and Grounds Improvement Act of 2011 – Amends the federal criminal code to revise the prohibition against entering restricted federal buildings or grounds to impose criminal penalties on anyone who knowingly enters any restricted building or grounds without lawful authority. Defines “restricted buildings or grounds” as a posted, cordoned off, or otherwise restricted area of: (1) the White House or its grounds or the Vice President’s official residence or its grounds, (2) a building or grounds where the President or other person protected by the Secret Service is or will be temporarily visiting, or (3) a building or grounds so restricted due to a special event of national significance.

Bill sponsor Tom Rooney (R-FL) claimed in a tweet responding to grievances on the internet, that “HR 347 does not effect your right to protest in any way whatsoever. It deals with fence jumpers, not protestors.”

As it turns out, the two page bill deals not just with ‘fence jumpers,’ but also lays the groundwork for all protests, gatherings and politic dissent in any facility or grounds in the United States of America that has been identified as a place of ‘national significance’ or where the Secret Service is charged with the protection of an individual – ANY individual, whether it’s the President, a congressional member or anyone else of national interest.

This is serious business, and you can be assured that, while Tom Rooney may have meant for the bill to stop fence jumpers, it can and will be used for far more than that:

The new legislation allows prosecutors to charge anyone who enters a building without permission or with the intent to disrupt a government function with a federal offense if Secret Service is on the scene, but the law stretches to include not just the president’s palatial Pennsylvania Avenue home. Under the law, any building or grounds where the president is visiting — even temporarily — is covered, as is any building or grounds “restricted in conjunction with an event designated as a special event of national significance.”

It’s not just the president who would be spared from protesters, either.

Covered under the bill is any person protected by the Secret Service. Although such protection isn’t extended to just everybody, making it a federal offense to even accidentally disrupt an event attended by a person with such status essentially crushes whatever currently remains of the right to assemble and peacefully protest.

Hours after the act passed, presidential candidate Rick Santorum was granted Secret Service protection…

In the text of the act, the law is allowed to be used against anyone who knowingly enters or remains in a restricted building or grounds without lawful authority to do so, but those grounds are considered any area where someone — whether it’s President Obama, Senator Santorum or Governor Romney — will be temporarily visiting, whether or not the public is even made aware. Entering such a facility is thus outlawed, as is disrupting the orderly conduct of “official functions,” engaging in disorderly conduct “within such proximity to” the event or acting violent to anyone, anywhere near the premises. Under that verbiage, that means a peaceful protest outside a candidate’s concession speech would be a federal offense…

For those who will undoubtedly be charged under the new legislation, the penalties will be severe.

If you are found to possess a weapon deemed as dangerous (not necessarily a gun) when you knowingly enter an event of national significance you can be imprisoned for up to ten years.

If you are a peaceful, unarmed protester and you disrupt an event you’ll be treated with a bit more mercy by our benevolent leaders and be given up to one (1) year in prison.

With what we’ve seen over the last few year in Greece, greater Europe, Syria, and even the United States, the legislation makes complete sense from a government standpoint. What better way to keep dissenters and protesters quiet than to imprison them for months or years? It will take only a few public examples the next time a Tea Party or Occupy style protest take place and millions of Americans will understand that staying home and staying silent is their new Patriotic duty.

And, if it so happens that protests turn to violent rioting and civil unrest, the government will have the pretext to arrest, detain and imprison anyone and everyone in those ‘restricted areas of national significance.’

Housing these criminals should not be a problem, as our government, the Pentagon and DHS have been planning for just this scenario for quite some time, going so far as to build largescale detention facilities where those identified as subversive to our government can be re-educated.

House passes Keystone bill, Senate action uncertain

The Keystone Pipeline has been at the center of a great deal of debate. It’s been protested across the country and with the awakening of Americans it seems we don’t want the massive pipeline nor do we want roadways paved to FEMA death camps. It would be great to have our crumbling roads rebuilt but not if the only ones being repaired will be those that lead to our demise and permanent enslavement.

ReutersBy Roberta Rampton

WASHINGTON (Reuters) – The House of Representatives passed an energy bill on Thursday that would wrest control of a permit for the controversial Keystone XL oil pipeline away from President Barack Obama, who has put the project on hold.

The bill, part of a broader House Republican effort to fund highways and infrastructure projects, would also expand offshore oil drilling and open up parts of the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge to drilling.

While approval of the Keystone measure by the House was widely expected, what happens with a similar proposal in the Democratic-controlled Senate is not yet clear.

Senate leaders were still negotiating on Thursday whether to allow a vote on Keystone as part of debate on a highway funding legislation, said Senator John Hoeven, a Republican from North Dakota who has been a key advocate for the $7 billion Canada-to-Texas project.

“I think on the merits we’re going to get it done. I don’t know when. I hope in the highway bill, but if not, we’ll stick with it,” Hoeven told Reuters.

Hoeven developed legislation that would see Congress grant TransCanada a permit for the project, and filed the bill as an amendment to the highway funding package.

PUMP PRICES SURGE

Republicans have seized upon the Canadian oil pipeline as a way to criticize Obama for his job creation and energy policies in the 2012 election race.

After massive protests from environmental groups, Obama last month said the pipeline needed more environmental review for the portion running through Nebraska, where the state government had rejected an initial proposed route.

Republicans said the project would create thousands of jobs. Environmental groups, who want to kill the project because they argue Canada’s oil sands produce too much pollution, also say the numbers are inflated.

Republicans have seized on surging gasoline prices as another way to make their case for Keystone.

In the long term, increasing oil supply from North America would help improve energy security and moderate volatility in gasoline prices, Hoeven said.

“I think we need to approve the Keystone XL project because that brings oil to us from our closest friend and ally rather than the Middle East,” Hoeven said.

The pipeline will also carry oil from Hoeven’s home state of North Dakota, where production has surged but infrastructure has failed to keep pace.

STEEP CLIMB

Even if the Keystone legislation makes it to the Senate floor for a vote, getting it passed will be difficult. There are currently 47 Republicans in the U.S. Senate, and they would need to find at least 13 Democrats to agree to move it forward.

The Senate and House would also need to agree on a highway bill, which could be difficult given major differences in size and scope between their proposed packages. And the bill would still need to have Obama’s approval to become law.

Obama has already threatened to veto the House package, due in part to the Keystone provision.

If Obama does anything of true value while he is in office, it will be to ensure that this nasty eyesore pipeline isn’t constructed.

Keystone to be attached to another US highway bill

The Canada-to-Texas Keystone XL pipeline was not approved by President Obama, citing lack of time to review an alternate route within the 60-day window for action set by Congress. Now, Republican lawmakers will try to force the Obama administration to approve the Canada-to-Texas Keystone XL pipeline by attaching it to a highway bill that Congress will consider next month.

This is another prime example of our “leaders” and “lawmakers” abusing our system of checks and balances. If at first you don’t succeed then attach it to something else that WILL get signed and maybe it will go through. This is a trend that’s been taking on popularity but is deceitful and underhanded.

“If (Keystone) is not enacted before we take up the American Energy and Infrastructure Jobs Act, it will be part of it,” Boehner said on ABC’s “This Week” news program.

What I am wondering is the WHY; why are all these politicians looking to get this pipeline built in the first place? It can’t be for the good of anyone so what are they going to gain from it? I think it’s time to start following the money again here and see where it leads.

God forbid they get this monstrosity built but what happens if there is a massive earthquake? Pipes burst, buckle and fail ALL THE TIME. Who’s going to be left holding the bag on a disaster of this magnitude? Who would be footing the bill for the cleanup, the lost lives, the lost jobs, land, livestock, crops, homes and land?

We need to know the WHY…..

Speaker of the House John Boehner Criticizes Obama’s Policies

With President Obama’s State of The Union address coming up tomorrow,Speaker of the House John Boehner has come out saying the Presidents policies are “pathetic” and that he need to “go in a new direction”.

In an interview with Fox News Sunday morning Boehner stated “It sounds to me like the same old policies,” and “More spending and higher taxes and more regulations—the same policies that haven’t helped our economy, they’ve made it worse. And if that’s what the president’s going to talk about Tuesday night, I think it’s pathetic.”

The president blames Congress and Congress blames the President. It sounds like a whole lot of finger pointing and no one is willing to step up to the plate and take charge. 2011 was a year of nothing but failure for the “leadership” in this country. It’s high time the people take back the power and start making decisions which make SENSE. Giving big banks money makes no sense! Let them fall on their asses and close like any other business.

Maybe instead of increasing taxes (as well as spending) and putting the burden of this mess on the backs of hard working Americans, the Senate and the House should take some pay cuts. Maybe it’s time they started paying for their own health insurance, hell…. Maybe they shouldn’t be getting paid at ALL to serve in public office. I believe that serving your community should be a volunteer position, not a paid one. Get rid of their salaries, their limo’s and private jets, get rid of their health care packages and lets see where we get with a balanced budget!

Congress and their money
