Despite what you are being told, the Affordable Health Care Act (ACA), commonly known as ObamaCare, is already proving to be a resounding success. The problem, however, is that the majority of Americans don’t fully understand the objectives of this plan, or the roles of its architects and its defenders. Even the vast majority of conservative pundits in all venues don’t seem to ‘get it’ and consequently, are leading their readers and listeners astray by focusing on the wrong issues.
First, it is vital to understand that the ACA is not now, nor never was, about providing affordable health care. It is merely disguised as such.

IT GETS WORSE!The Obama IRS demanded that several Tea Party groups provide back-end access to their websites.
From reliable sources: This happened to several Tea Party groups!The source has this in writing.
It states they wanted access to everything the members had access to, which would be chats, email, contact information, etc.

Sometimes what you learn from those with whom you come into contact simply blows you away. In this instance, I contacted Jeff Boss for an interview on “The Real Deal”, where I had no idea what I was about to hear from him.
I can’t vouch for anything he told me, but I have visited his web sites and found a number of affidavits about the NSA making pay-offs to silence those who know his story.
We spoke for over an hour and he invited me to visit his websites, “bossformayor.com”, “bossforsenate.com”, and “bossforpresident.com”.
State Senator Wants Crackdown on Anonymous Internet Commentary… ” Under the proposed bill, to avoid having his content removed a poster would have to attach his legal name, IP address, and home address.“As it stands now, pretty much anyone can post anything he wants,” Silverstein complained”
Illinois State Senator Ira Silverstein D-Chicago has introduced legislation that would require Internet websites to remove anything posted by an anonymous poster if someone complains about the content.
Under the proposed bill, to avoid having his content removed a poster would have to attach his legal name, IP address, and home address.“As it stands now, pretty much anyone can post anything he wants,” Silverstein complained. “If he does it anonymously someone who is offended by the posting has no recourse other than to try to rebut it in his own post. This may be acceptable for a person who is articulate, but many people aren’t.”Silverstein said he isn’t worried that his bill could chill freedom of speech.
“Freedom of speech shouldn’t be a ‘blank check’ to offend other people,” he contended. “There’s also a need for government authorities to be able to identify potential troublemakers. Restricting web site access to those willing to give their real names will significantly aid this process.
At first blush, this story may not appear terribly relevant to national security blogs, democracy or human rights, but here me out. It concerns a 24 year-old British citizen whose website has acted as a go-between for other sites which allegedly infringe music and movie copyrights of U.S. entertainment companies. Richard O’Dwyer ran the site, TVShack.net, which linked to others accused of online piracy.
A political website that contained stinging criticism of the Obama administration and its handling of the Fast and Furious scandal was ordered to be shut down by the Obama campaign’s ‘Truth Team’, according to private investigator Douglas Hagmann, who was told by ISP GoDaddy his site contained information that was “maliciously harmful to individuals in the government.”
Last Friday GoDaddy.com sent a notice to the owner of Homelandsecurityus.com informing him that he needed to find a new home for his domain name and web site.
“We did receive complaints about objectionable content on Homelandsecurityus.com, but it was not from a government agency or campaign committee, nor was it political in nature.

Website to help Sanford shooter with legal defense not functioning
The website that George Zimmerman set up to help raise money for his legal defense has been disabled.
The website http://www.therealgeorgezimmerman was no longer functioning as of Tuesday.
We Are All George Zimmerman (“George Zimmerman has been chosen to serve as a gladiator in the circus that distracts a bankrupt nation from the criminal folly of its leaders”)
Zimmerman had decorated his flyers and website with the famous quotation attributed to Edmund Burke, “The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil, is that good men do nothing.” His activities reveal a man who took those words to heart, who put his time, money and safety on the line to become one of those good men who do something. But the problem was that Zimmerman had been reading Burke, when he should have been reading Kafka.
“Someone must have slandered Josef K., for one morning, without having done anything wrong, he was arrested.” That is the famous opening sentence to Kafka’s novel, “The Trial”, words that have far more to do with the way we live now.

At approximately 11am local time yesterday, Internet users around China reported significant Internet blackouts. Not only were they unable to access some Chinese sites, but also many foreign Web sites that had not previously been blocked.
The issue was not isolated to China. Web users in Hong Kong and Japan also reported issues with accessing Chinese sites. A number of explanations immediately came to light, with the most viable cause being the 8.7 magnitude earthquake in Indonesia on Wednesday, that might have damaged undersea cables.
Online graphic warns of al-Qaida return to NYC
Associated Press – 9 hrs ago
The agency announced Thursday that it had taken control of the domain names of 307 websites as part of “Operation Fake Sweep”. Most of the websites in question were said to be illegally selling and distributing counterfeit sporting merchandise.
Right now, there are two pieces of legislation in Congress that would change the Internet forever if they are enacted. The Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA) and the Protect Intellectual Property Act (PIPA) would give the federal government the ability to potentially shut down millions of websites. SOPA (the version being considered in the U.S. House of Representatives) is the more dangerous of the two. It would essentially be the equivalent of a nuclear bomb being dropped on the Internet. It would give government officials unlimited power to very rapidly shut down any website that is found to “engage in, enable or facilitate” copyright infringement.

Two bills intended to stem digital piracy of movies, software and music are winding their way through both houses of Congress. House Resolution 3261, the “Stop Online Piracy Act,” or SOPA, was debated Nov. 16 in the House Judiciary Committee. Its sister bill in the Senate, the “Preventing Real Online Threats to Economic Creativity and Theft of Intellectual Property Act” (Protect IP), was introduced last May.
Also called the “Enforcing and Protecting American Rights Against Sites Intent on Theft and Exploitation Act” (E-PARASITE Act), SOPA has generated opposition from a wide range of groups, including far-left Public Knowledge, libertarian Electronic Freedom Foundation, light-regulatory advocates TechFreedom, and the free-market Heartland Institute.
Both bills would allow the U.S. Department of Justice to seek court orders to shut down Web sites accused of infringing on copyrights by selling pirated music and movies or counterfeit products such as clothing and medicine. Of the two bills, SOPA is far more reaching as it would permit the DOJ to target Web sites accusing of “enabling or facilitating” copyright infringement.
SOPA opponents say the bill would allow copyright holders to seek court orders targeting legitimate Web sites that feature user-generated content. As the bill is written currently, the DOJ could seek court orders requiring domain name registrars and ISPs to block U.S. access to sites accused of infringing copyright, which may prompt Internet users to attempt to bypass such blocks that may result in security issues.
“The bill makes three grave errors,” said Larry Downes, senior adjunct fellow at TechFreedom. “First, SOPA fails to identify the specific problems for which existing laws are inadequate. Second, it favors broad remedies over narrowly tailored solutions. Third, it commissions a proper cost-benefit analysis but only after the bill becomes law — too late to ensure that SOPA strikes the right balance.”

As Cyber Monday draws near and debate continues about the Stop Online Piracy Act, the U.S. government has again seized a bevy of domain names it says belong to Web sites that deal in counterfeit goods.
Blog TorrentFreak ran a list of more than 130 domains it said were seized by the Department of Justice and the Department of Homeland Security‘s Immigrations and Customs Enforcement division as part of “Operation in Our Sites.” TorrentFreak called the move the largest such round of seizures to date.
…It’s clear that more people are choosing to seek out news from independent sources like Global Research, which is truly encouraging.
From disillusionment comes a growing sense of wanting to understand what’s really happening, why thousands are taking to the streets worldwide to protest against financial tyranny, why leaders speak of peace while instigating war, why crimes against humanity are being passed off as “humanitarianism“.
The Internet is one of our strongest tools and we can use it broadly to support the journalists, researchers and writers who are committed to the struggle against media disinformation.
Establish your own distribution system in support of Global Research, and don’t be afraid to get creative!
Here’s how we can get the information out there: If you have your own website, consider putting Global Research in your list of recommended links.

Part 1 It has been a year since I have talked about securing browsers against privacy invasion. In that time, things have got worse, not better. In addition to the threat of malware and malicious scripts, we have the frightening new evercookie.
Leaving the criminal misuse of tracking for a later date, there is plenty to worry about from the use – and misuse – of our personal data by legitimate organisations. Advertisers are getting aggressive, and the techniques in use require a stalwart defence if we hope to retain our privacy.
To publish a website, there are several points of weakness where identifying information could be gleaned. Political activists and whistleblowers will be able to easily circumvent identity requirements at each one of these points, allowing them to anonymously publish material online with an anonymous website.
Anonymous Website Domain Name
A website needs a domain name (one of those .com things) which must be bought and paid for through a domain registry like GoDaddy. Most domain registries allow people to protect their identity by using a domain registration proxy. Using these proxies is not sufficient to protect identity because identifying information must still be shared with the proxy, which can be pressured to reveal it.
To prevent the domain registry from revealing their identity to anyone, political activists will simply enter pseudanonymous information, like Publius or Silence Dogood. If they are really sneaky they may even enter the information of a competitor to register their domain or use an anonymous domain registrar.
Anonymous Website Payment
An important link in the chain is payment for services. Even if a pen name is provided, the person paying for the domain name could easily be tracked down by ruthless government officials by tracking down the source of payment, making an anonymous website less anonymous. To avoid leaving an audit trail back to their own financial accounts, political journalists may pay for their domain name with a money order paid for in cash, use a prepaid credit card (which they paid cash to acquire) or pay with Bitcoins. There are several companies that offer domain name registration for Bitcoins. If they send payment from a Bitcoin address that has not been published anywhere else, it will be hard to trace payments to them.
VeriSign Demands Power To Kill “Abusive” Websites
Manager of all .com internet addresses seeks authority to terminate domains on government order without legal oversight
Paul Joseph Watson
Tuesday, October 11, 2011
The global authority over all .com domain names, VeriSign, is demanding the power to terminate websites deemed “abusive” when ordered to by government without a court order or any kind of oversight whatsoever.
VeriSign Demands Power To Kill Abusive Websites 997931 internet
“The company said today it wants to be able to enforce the “denial, cancellation or transfer of any registration” in any of a laundry list of scenarios where a domain is deemed to be “abusive,” reports the UK Register.
Not only is VeriSign seeking the power to kill websites when ordered to by governments, but also by “quasi-governmental agencies,” which could extend as far as lobbying organizations and special interests.
VeriSign has asked the domain name industry overseer ICANN to grant it the power to kill a .com or .net domain in order to comply with “applicable court orders, laws, government rules or requirements,” and believes the authority should be global to allow the company to shut down websites “without a court order” if any government agency merely requests it do so.
“The company has already helped law enforcement agencies in…..
Owners of popular conservative websites have increasing reason to be concerned their sites may be hacked or otherwise physically attacked for political reasons. Traditionally, hackers took an anarchist approach that primarily targeted government websites. Lately, they are assailing politically conservative websites. Many of these newer attacks are coming from hackers associated with Wikileaks. Some libertarian conservatives defend Wikileaks’ business of leaking government documents, unaware that its affiliates are hypocritically trying to silence them. In addition to wreaking technical havoc, hackers have figured out they can use Google’s strict policy against deceptive website tactics to keep conservative websites hidden from the internet for long periods of time.
After Google banned my website, Intellectual Conservative, a few weeks ago due to some political enemies who had “cloaked” it, I decided to look into how prevalent the hacking of conservatives websites has become. Politically targeted hacking is known as “hactivism,” and is really a form of cyberterrorism. Not all attacks upon websites are considered hacking, some are less intrusive such as DDoS (distributed denial-of-service attack), where a website is continually pinged until it is forced to shut down.
A new powerful hacking organization surfaced this summer targeting conservatives in addition to………………….
Google worked closely with the authoritarian government in China to censor the internet. It’s video platform Youtube continually receives complaints that it removes controversial videos, especially politically controversial videos.
So it came as no surprise when the popular political website Activist Post suddenly disappeared and it turned out that Blogger had pulled the plug. It was eventually restored after a ground swell of complaints and criticism.
It is now a familiar pattern. A site suddenly disappears without explanation and after a couple days of news coverage it reappears. Blogger’s explanation for the Activist Post takedown – technical issues. Google has offered the same explanation after it has restored videos at Youtube.
Google usually backs down if the outrage is vocal and public enough, as it was in the case of the Activist Post takedown. Less popular sites that offend the elite and Google – a documented…..
Stand Up America Us and many other web sites have been attacked at the server hosting the site:
The Stand Up America US web site is one of the many who are now recovering.
The web hosting service InMotion, a very reputable firm used by many thousands of web sites acknowledged the breach and gave the following statement:
“At around 4 a.m. EST, our system administration team identified a website defacement attack affecting a large number of customers. We are still investigating, but it appears that files named index.php have been defaced.
We are evaluating how this has occurred and our security team will have more information shortly,” InMotion said in a statement. “While we review this issue, cPanel and SSH access has been disabled on various platforms. For additional security, we are rotating passwords on a number of accounts.”………………..

(Aug. 20, 2011) — This morning two readers of The Post & Email informed this writer that their search engine could not locate our website and that they were redirected to a nonexistent site, sokoloperkovuskeci.com.
Whereas the police are required to respond to charges by questioning the accused, they are not supposed to make a public spectacle of him in order to create the impression that he is guilty before he is even charged. Yet DSK was arrested aboard an airliner as it was about to depart for France and portrayed by the police as a fleeing criminal. Photos were released of him in handcuffs and stripped of his business attire.
The judge refused bail to one of the West’s most high profile persons on the basis of the prosecutor’s statement that DSK would flee the country and hide out abroad. All of this quickly was passed to reporters, who obliged the prosecutors and police by portraying DSK as obviously guilty as he was apprehended fleeing from the country.
The police even planted the story that DSK was in such a hurry to flee that he left behind his cell phone and that that is how they found him. This was a ball-faced lie. The fact of the matter is that when DSK arrived at the airport, he discovered that he had left his cell phone and called the hotel, the scene of the alleged crime, to ask that it be retrieved and brought to him at the airport. When the police boarded his flight, he asked them, “Did you bring my cell phone.” He had no idea the police were there to detain him for questioning.

Is the US Driving the World Towards World War III: Osama’s Alleged Compound. How Many SEALs Died?:
“Other than on the Veterans Today and ICH Internet sites, I have not seen any mention of the Pakistani news story.
If the White House press corps is aware of the report, no one has asked President Obama or his press spokesperson about it.
Helen Thomas was the last American reporter sufficiently brave to ask such a question, and she was exterminated by the Israel Lobby.
In America we have reached the point where anyone who tells the truth is dismissed as a “conspiracy theorist” and marginalized. Recently, a professor of nano-chemistry from the University of Copenhagen made a lecture tour of major Canadian universities explaining the research, conducted by himself and a team of physicists and engineers, that resulted in finding small particles of unreacted nano-thermite in dust samples from the wreckage of the World Trade Center towers in addition to other evidence that the professor and the research team regard as conclusive scientific proof that the towers were brought down by controlled demolition.”

Hatch’s website ‘fiasco’ — simply updating old site (RINO pushed bill for a foreign-born president)
Deseret News ^ | 2011-05-03 | Jamshid Ghazi Askar

Several national publications recently speculated that Sen. Orrin Hatch was purposely deleting pages from his official website in an attempt to preserve his conservative bona fides. Hatch’s office, however, squashed the rumors by thoroughly clarifying that the elimination of certain web pages was an “internal decision” related to the launch of “a brand new website.”
Here’s a timeline of what transpired: Darren Elliot wrote a piece for Salon on Thursday revisiting the Presidential Eligibility Amendment, a 2003 bill introduced by Hatch that would allow foreign-born American citizens to run for president — a stance which at the time was primarily aimed clearing the path for the political ascendancy of Arnold Schwarzenegger but that today would almost certainly be anathema to “birthers” and a majority of tea partiers.
The very next day Elliot followed up with another article, this time stating: “Less than 24 hours after the (Thursday) piece went up, a tech blogger discovered that the section of Hatch’s website that mentioned the ‘Presidential Eligibility Amendment’ had mysteriously disappeared.”

BEST WAY TO FIND OLD MARINE BUDDIES! YOUR OWN WEBSITE IS THE BEST WAY!!!
After many years now, I still receive e-mail daily asking how to find old Marine Corps buddies, Marine relatives, other info or requesting that I post photos, etc.
Please understand, I do NOT do searches for others, nor do I maintain personnel files of any kind, etc. And I retired my crystal ball many years ago.
The answer? Well, many will tell you to use this or that search service, sign this or that Guestbook, post to Marine messageboards, and then there are those websites for Reunions and Associations that should not be overlooked either, etc. (Use Google Search, below to find the above) All of the above are fine, but, in my opinion and experience, the very best way to find old friends/information, perhaps in addition to the above, is to put up your own free website and They will find YOU!!!
Look at it this way, if you were looking for someone on the Internet and cannot find them, think how much easier it would be if that person had his/her own website out there, wouldn’t that make things a whole lot easier.
Once you establish your own visible presence (your website) on the WWW, those who knew you and/or may be searching for you, and others with the info you seek, as well, will have a starting point. It’s that simple–it may take a while, but results will eventually come. It’s easy to find people who are already on the Internet! Show your name/keywords at or near the top of the page and that will assist those who may type your name/keywords into a search engine on the www……………….

The websites did not host or link to child pornography as the government claims.

Message appearing on the home page of DHS-seized websites, including one that is a “Google-like” search engineNov. 28, 2010 — Several reports issued over the last several days have stated that the Department of Homeland Security has shut down 75 or 76 websites with the explanation: “This domain name has been seized by ICE – Homeland Security Investigations, pursuant to a seizure warrant issued by a United States District Court under the authority of 18 U.S.C. §§ 981 and 2323.”If DHS can “seize” domain names registered to private companies, why can it not keep illegal aliens from crossing our borders and killing our citizens?What purview does DHS have over the internet, and what type of risk did these websites pose?
One source stated that ICE authorities “executed court-ordered seizure warrants” against the websites and cited “an ongoing investigation” into the sites’ activities.All of the sources agreed that one of the sites which was seized and shut down was a search engine which did not display copyrighted information, but rather, provided links to portals which did. Linking to its url now results in the display of the graphic pictured above.
Sure the election of 2010 is now over, but we are still being abused!

The “controlled media” has announced the latest presidential “trip” but failed to elaborate on the details of the emperors extravagance while the people suffer.

THIMEROSAL, AUTISM’S DADDYPART 1 of 2
By Jon Christian Ryter
October 28, 2010NewsWithViews.com
Author’s Note: In the last few days, I’ve had about a half-dozen emails with links sent to me referring me to an old story I wrote in 1999, and asking me where the URL was on my website. It doesn’t exist. I wrote the story on an old AOL subdomain website some two years before my website was created. Since there appears to be an interest in this subject 11 years later, I decided to try to reconstruct the information as best I could and place it here for those who might still be interested in the material today.
I wrote the story which appears under this italicized section on June 30, 1999 and posted it on July 1st of that year. The report, or those parts of it that I actually wrote, came into my possession from an official in the Clinton Administration‘. This individual and I had a discussion a week or two earlier on the possible links between Alzheimer’s and aluminum, based on two totally unrelated reports that crossed my desk.
The first one, a puff piece for the aluminum industry on the increased use of aluminum in cookware in the 20th century and the second, an increase in the reported cases of Alzheimer’s Disease in the elderly over the second half of the 20th century. When I saw the statistics of the second report there appeared to be an uncanny connection to the first.It was by mere chance that I ran into this particular DHHS official and raised the question if there were any statistics I could find on either the CDC or DHHS websites that showed a correlation between the increased use of aluminum cookware and the rise in reported cases of Alzheimer’s Disease.
The official, raised a counter-question, asking if I would be surprised to learn that the causes of Alzheimer’s might be remarkably similar to the causes of autism…
We are at the crossroads of a very important time in history. Free humanity is waking up globally to the designs of a corporate-government fusion, and an overarching agenda which does not place individual liberty as a priority. Each day it seems that a new piece of the puzzle is revealed, and previous shadow dealings see the light of day.
This is due in no small part to the pioneers of liberty such as InfoWars who have used their passion for the truth to research and investigate how this system of control came to be.As the mainstream media continues to mislead the public, alternative news sites have gained popularity simply by exposing the truth. However, the truth tends to be pretty damning to the Corporate State. Therefore, alternative news organizations rarely get large sponsorship — they require viewer support.
Like many alternative news Web sites, it would be very unlikely that Activist Post could have gained the attention it has in such a short time without Alex Jones and Infowars. Infowars consistently publishes our articles, and for that we are grateful.InfoWars has initiated a Moneybomb for October 14th. Activist Post is pledging $500 to their goal of reaching $500,000. Naturally, with the state of the global economy, we urge you only to give the amount that is comfortable, …

Department of Justice would have power to shut down “unlawful content,” which according to their own definition includes political free speech

The Obama Administration IP Czar Victoria Espinel has been holding meetings with ISPs, registrars, payment processors and others in a bid to get them to block access to websites “dedicated to infringing activities”. However, as we have documented, the government deems such infringement to include political opinions which are antagonistic toward the state, leaving the door open for state censorship of free speech on the world wide web.
Espinel, the White House’s Intellectual Property Enforcement Coordinator, aims to create a special relationship between the government and Internet companies in order to  “harmonize the efforts of law enforcement at the federal, state and local levels and strengthen cooperation with the private sector.”
“While the meeting is carefully focused on stopping websites that sell gray market pharmaceuticals, if registrars start agreeing to censoring websites at the behest of the government, it’s as if we’re halfway to a COICA-style censorship regime already. ICANN, who manages the internet domain name system was asked to attend the meeting, but felt that it “was not appropriate to attend” such a meeting,” reports Datamation .
The meeting was convened to grease the skids for government control of the Internet as part of a back up plan in case the increasingly unpopular Cybersecurity and COICA bills fall by the wayside.
Internet entrepreneurs are in a panic over a Senate bill they say will censor the Web, stifle Silicon Valley startups, damage the United States’ credibility on free speech and ultimately trigger the creation of an alternate-universe Internet. The West Coast engineers say they were blindsided last Monday when the Combating Online Infringement and Counterfeits Act was introduced in the Senate Judiciary Committee.
The bill has a bipartisan roster of co-sponsors who say it will be a tool for stopping the worst offenders in the world of online piracy. The bill would give the attorney general new powers to shut down websites deemed dedicated to counterfeit material — by going through the courts and by encouraging service providers to go after sites the Justice Department puts on a public blacklist.
According to the bill, a website would have to be “dedicated to infringing activities” to trigger the enforcement.

The tone is almost mocking, and the audience’s laughter seems to validate that notion.However, the laughter turned to applause when Paul got into the body of his response with such replies as, “I’m a strict constitutionalist; I’ve voted against more spending,” than any other candidate.The dailypaul.com website leads us to the original video still sourced on the front page of DIGG which suggests Fox cut Paul’s definitive remarks from its debate re-air.

To the city of Philadelphia, it’s a potential moneymaker, and the city wants its cut.In May, the city sent Bess a letter demanding that she pay $300, the price of a business privilege license.“The real kick in the pants is that I don’t even have a full-time job, so for the city to tell me to pony up $300 for a business privilege license, pay wage tax, business privilege tax, net profits tax on a handful of money is outrageous,” Bess says.It would be one thing if Bess’ website were, well, an actual business, or if the amount of money the city wanted didn’t outpace her earnings six-fold. Sure, the city has its rules; and yes, cash-strapped cities can’t very well ignore potential sources of income.
But at the same time, there must be some room for discretion and common sense.When Bess pressed her case to officials with the city’s now-closed tax amnesty program, she says, “I was told to hire an accountant.”
