Ron Paul has Bernake stammering - Is Gold Money ?

How Ron Paul got Ben Bernanke to crack a smile

Texas congressman Ron Paul, the author of End the Fed and vocal disciple of the Austrian school of economics, rarely draws a smile from Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke. But he did Wednesday – by confirming his retirement from Congress at the end of his current term.
Mr. Paul actually made the announcement on his website Tuesday. Mr. Paul’s colleagues on the House Financial Services Committee made note of the news before commencing a hearing with Mr. Bernanke on Wednesday.

“I’m sure that that came as quite a disappointment to the Federal Reserve,” said Alabama Republican Spencer Bachus, the committee’s chairman.
The video cameras fixed on Mr. Bernanke showed him smiling broadly after the remark.
Noting Mr. Bernanke’s grin, and those of his staff, Mr. Paul indicated that had he known his departure would bring the Fed such pleasure he might have reconsidered.
Instead, for perhaps the last time, Mr. Paul took advantage of his position as inquisitor to rail on the Federal Reserve as the central problem for everything that is wrong with the U.S. economy.
“The country is bankrupt and we aren’t quite willing to admit that,” Mr. Paul said. He went on to say that “spending wouldn’t have gotten out of hand if we didn’t have a system that provided the funds.” The provider of those funds, in Mr. Paul’s view, is the central bank, which is the “facilitator of special interests” and “takes the pressure off” lawmakers to get the budget under control.

And that was simply Mr. Paul’s preamble. When it was finally his turn to ask a question, he ensured that if this was indeed his last chance to grill Mr. Bernanke, he would go out in a blaze of rhetorical glory. The subject for his last stand will come as no surprise to anyone familiar with Mr. Paul: gold.

How False Flag Terror Ops Work - Smoking Gun

While researching various anti-terror disaster response drills conducted by various government agencies such as DHS, specifically the ExPlan drills used recently in National Level Exercise 2011, I discovered a "surprising" and revealing official policy regarding how staged response drills and exercises are to be carried out.

Section 4 describes the cover protocol for switching to exercise mode to real life.
I think this is a smoking gun document for all goverment staged terror attacks since the 1990's, including 9/11. This is HUGE.

Exercise Control
Actual Emergencies

All exercise participants shall immediately contact a member of the Exercise Control/Evaluators/and/or Safety Officers to report an emergency.
The exercise will be suspended or terminated if an actual emergency occurs.
This will be accomplished with the following radio transmission:


All exercise participants will then report to their immediate supervisor at the scenario so that an accounting of personnel may be conducted.
The Exercise Director will be responsible for making the decision to terminate or resume the scenario depending on the nature or severity of the emergency.

Exercise Continuity

The Exercise Design Team has developed control measures to ensure that the Exercise Objectives will be satisfied.  These control measures will be known as “injects”.

An “Inject” is a “stimuli” that may be inserted into the scenario at a specific time to ensure an event will occur. The “inject” will assist the Exercise Management Team with the flow of the scenario.

 “Injects” will be used during each scenario of NOVEX 2006.  These injects will be inserted by the Exercise Control Staff at the appropriate time.  Injects are listed by time, type, and anticipated result on the Master Scenario Events List (MSEL) which is located in the COSIN.

We know that on 9/11, multiple "injects" or "phantoms" where inserted as multiple blurps on radar screens at flight control and NORAD and NATO command centers.

Internet Censorship Worldwide

 As many are well aware, their is an ongoing stranglehold on information sharing on the internet. Canada, United States, Europe and Russia are establishing a censorship control grid on the internet as the top globalists are calling for. As alternative media surpasses mainstream government funded news sources, and the dinosaur media continues to fall due to the poor journalistic abilities and ongoing whitewash and cover ups of real issues, the global elite cabal are using their power and influence to destroy their competition on the internet and abolish free speech.

Their raw power and stranglehold of media and government is allowing this elite cabal of globalists, who often publicly praise and act as if free speech, openness and knowledge is needed for "democracy" and "freedom", are actively supporting top bankers, paid congressmen and politicians, an an internationalist globalist cabal bent on creating a New World Order built on a modern scientific form of communism, Nazism and fascism dictatorship, of which is built on a base belief of complete restriction of free speech, rights and liberties, all under the guise of a United Nations framework.

Of course, a powerful tool they have as all powerful masters of the World, is the ability to launch cyber wars and fund and train individuals to carry out targeted assault on online media, painting internet users as extreme and dangerous, and use cases of individuals who are acting criminally online as fodder to destroy free speech on the internet, on blogs and news websites.

Examples of web censorship in Canada/United States and Russia will be shown below.


Posting articles from

This happens on Facebook with many articles from various media websites, including mainstream sources. In fact you may not even see this message, your post just will not be posted on your page, or immediately disappear from the main public update feed.

Also in the United States, you have cases of FBI and the DHS shutting down hosting and DNS servers in mass for simply hosting a single page that may contain or link to "copyrighted material", shutting hundreds and thousands of websites down at a time with a simple message such as "this website was found to contain copyrighted material" or the even better "this website was found to contain material related to illegal pornography".

Homeland Security shuts down dozens of Web sites without court order

The office of Presidency in the United States of America also has established a cyber security command and czar, and has established bills and executive order to allow the President of the United States to shut down the internet for the entire country if "deemed necessary"

Now Russia is playing the same globalist regime anti-free speech game:

Ministry calls for media network to censor extremist comment on Web media

Russia's Communications Ministry is to discuss proposals on Thursday for ways to speed up the process of deleting offensive and extremist user comments from online media pages.
Sergei Zheleznyak, who heads the information policy committee in the State Duma, the lower chamber of the Russian parliament, said a special state-run network of all Russian online media should be set up to quickly inform moderators and editors about offensive and extremist content detected on their websites.

"Such a database will enable [Russian telecoms regulator] Roskomnadzor to control users' comments on the Internet and inform online media about extremists or offensive comments on their material," Zheleznyak said.

The initiative is part of a drive by the ministry's Council for Internet and New Media to fulfil President Medvedev's instruction for better legislation on accountability of Internet media for user comment posted on its pages. The ministry has to present its proposals by August 1.
The proposed amendments, if adopted, would not affect bloggers and social networking sites.
"They [the proposals] will affect only online media, whose activities fall under the law on the media," Zheleznyak said.

An online service of this type may be launched next year. It would also enable users to lodge complaints about comments that they find offensive.

Zheleznyak said proposals have been made to cut from three days to 24 hours the period in which media must delete an offensive comment or face litigation.,1518,714848,00.html

Will Russia's Bloggers Survive Censorship Push?

With so many of their media sources controlled by the state or government-friendly oligarchs, Russians have turned to their bloggers to keep informed and give voice to their grievances and concerns. But many of those in power are now seeking to impose rigid limits on online freedom.

One sunny June day in California, Rustem Adagamov was rushing without his glasses on when he literally ran into Russia's president. "I simply didn't see Dmitry Medvedev," Russia's most influential blogger says, "and I bumped right into him."
Adagamov, 48, uses his blog to report on a range of grievances, including the arrests of opposition members and "unparalleled police brutality." Each day, his blog gets around 600,000 page views, making it more widely read than many of Moscow's daily newspapers. Adagamov has even made fun of Medvedev on his blog by posting photographs of cups bearing the portraits of Medvedev and Prime Minister Vladimir Putin and the caption "They all lie anyway" printed in bold.

Acts like these make it all the more astonishing that Medvedev agreed to submit to an interview with the Kremlin critic. And that's not all: The president also invited Adagamov to accompany him to California for a meeting with Steve Jobs, the CEO of Apple.

Medvedev, 44, is an avowed fan of the Internet, writes his own blog and uses Twitter. The president, for example, recently wrote an article -- entitled "Forward, Russia!" -- that garnered global attention for its ruthless analysis of Russia's economic backwardness. But instead of distributing it via a government newspaper or state-run television, he had it published on, Russia's best-known online newspaper. And, just last week, Medvedev halted a controversial highway construction project near Moscow via video blog.

Although Medvedev calls for "openness at all levels" from his government and Russian authorities, many among the country's power elite view this as taking things a bit too far -- especially when it comes to the Internet. Medvedev's own chief of staff, Sergei Naryshkin, recently called a meeting in response to a writer at who had laid into Putin and Medvedev because she was upset about how their motorcades were blocking traffic.

Russia at the IT Crossroads

The FSB, Russia's domestic intelligence agency, wants to force Internet service providers to remove undesirable websites. A law also requires these providers to install hardware at their own expense that allows the FSB -- with a judge's authorization -- to keep track of the websites people visit and the e-mails they write.

Some service providers have even started proactively censoring users themselves. Companies such as Scartel, for example, block portals belonging to Kremlin critics, including former world chess champion Garry Kasparov.

In this battle over the Internet, there are two camps. The issue is about the future course Russia will take and about how much freedom it will allow its 142 million citizens. Some believe Russia should take its cue from the liberal West. But others think it should follow more in the footsteps of authoritarian regimes like China, which is trying as hard as it can to control the Internet -- and, with it, its citizens.

For his part, Medvedev sees information technology as the "key to the development of democracy" and the Internet as the "most important resource" in reaching his primary goal: modernizing his massive nation.

Where Google Is Not King

Russia's Internet companies have been playing a prominent role in this process. They've been able to stave off foreign competition so far and, lately, they've even started expanding into the West. This April, the investment company Digital Sky Technologies (DST) -- owned by start-up investor Yuri Milner and gas and metal magnate Alisher Usmanov -- increased its share in Facebook to 10 percent and purchased the ICQ instant-messaging system from the American company AOL for $188 million (€148 million). ICQ has over 40 million active users, many of whom are in the West.

Hammocks and bowls of fresh fruit lend a touch of Silicon Valley to the open-plan offices of Yandex, Russia's champion among search engines. "We respect Google," says Yelena Kolmanovskaya, who co-founded the company 13 years ago, "but we're simply better." Today, Yandex has more than 2,000 employees and controls around 65 percent of the Russian market. Likewise, no other search engine in the world is growing faster. Google, which controls around 70 percent of the global market, is stagnating in Russia at a meager 22 percent.

Sixty million Russians now regularly surf online, an increase of 15 million over last year. For many, the Internet serves as a release valve, a place where members of this well-educated but overly controlled society can let off some steam. Likewise, nearly 50 percent of Internet users in Moscow have a blog, as do 7.5 million people throughout the country -- a figure nearly double what it was a year ago.

Since the Kremlin has brought almost all major television stations under its control over the last decade, and since newspapers and magazines have low circulations -- and are often owned by oligarchs with close ties to the government -- it has been left to the bloggers to exercise the checks-and-balances function traditionally performed by the media. Even tabloids such as the Komsomolskaya Pravda have praised bloggers as the "Fifth Estate."

Indeed, these days, it's usually bloggers -- rather than members of the traditional media -- who expose scandals and give voice to grievances. Blog reports by a student on conditions at a nursing home near Moscow, for example, led to the firing of its corrupt director. And, this spring, when a Mercedes belonging to a high-level manager at the oil giant Lukoil sped into a car in the opposite lane and killed two women, crime scene photographs published online exposed police attempts at a cover-up.

"Russia's bloggers are simply the most serious," says Brad Fitzpatrick, the American founder of LiveJournal, an online service that allows people to set up their own blogs. And there's no doubt that bloggers in Russia are more influential than they are anywhere else.

This degree of influence was one of the factors that led Adagamov -- whose online moniker is "Drugoi," or "the Other" -- to give up his comfortable life in Norway as the creative director of an advertising agency five years ago and move to Moscow. Still, it remains to be seen whether he will be able to work as freely here as he was able to in the past.

"President Medvedev isn't a bad guy," Adagamov says, "and I appreciate his openness." But he remains skeptical as to whether the president will ultimately succeed in pushing through his ideas about the Internet. As Adagamov sees it, "the Internet is the last free territory -- but it won't stay that way for long."

Russia's Anti-Internet-Freedom Crusader
One of Russia's sharpest-tongued opponents of online freedom is Robert Schlegel, who comes from an ethnic German family. Like Adagamov, Schlegel owns an iPad and writes a blog. But, unlike Adagamov, the 25 year old is not one of the "Others." Instead, he belongs to "Nashi" (literally "Ours"), a pro-Putin, Kremlin-controlled youth organization. Since leaving a position as a Nashi spokesman in 2007, Schlegel has served as a member of parliament for Putin's United Russia party. At the moment, he is working on a new Internet law that would introduce a type of electronic passport for every user, making the Internet as easy to control as the other forms of media that have been amenable to promoting government interests.

Schlegel dreams of someday becoming a minister. In the meantime, he gives instruction to young patriots as they film video clips for YouTube at Nashi's summer camp on Lake Seliger, halfway between Moscow and St. Petersburg.

Nashi members are notoriously fervent Putin admirers. Some time ago, the critical daily newspaper Kommersant even accused the group of having carried out cyber attacks that paralyzed its website.

Last year, Schlegel even suggested allowing newspapers to be shut down for "defamation" and lobbied for a strict limit on the proportion of foreign films shown in Russian movie theaters, in the belief that: "Many media sources abuse their freedoms."

Which Path Will Business Pursue?

Alexander Mamut, Russia's most powerful Internet oligarch, will have to take a stand somewhere between Adagamov and Schlegel, between the progressive blogger and the conservative Internet regulator. In 2007, Mamut -- whose wealth is estimated to be $1.5 billion, according to the American business magazine Forbes -- bought a majority share of LiveJournal. Nearly half of all Russian blogs operate on the blog-hosting site, including those of Adagamov and his adversary Schlegel.

The question, of course, is: Which side is Mamut on? The magnate, who refuses to grant interviews on political topics, will only say: "Russia needs to finally learn to cultivate its people instead of its raw materials."
This is a serious global issue and it highlights the agenda of the international globalists and the creation of their ruthless New World Order.

Quartzsite AZ Martial Law Update

Quartzsite council meeting draws media attention

Quartzsite Mayor Ed Foster walked out of this morning's budget meeting, claiming it was an illegal meeting because town did not post the agenda 24 hours in advance. Quartzite and surrounding areas were without power the majority of the day yesterday. Evidently postings were made on bulletin boards but not on town website due to power outage.
Meeting was officiated by Vice Mayor Barbara Cowell. Council voted to hold a meeting on the budget in a week and allow public to review the proposed budget. There was a strong Media present at the very short meeting. No arrests were made.

Former Councilman Speaks Out
12 Jul

Call to the Public has been suspended at all Quartzsite Council meetings until September. What will they do next???

 I was going to give this speech today but now I will not be able to. The world needs to see this. Please feel free to pass this along to others.  

Good evening, my name is Hal Davidson former Councilman of Quartzsite Arizona. I hope I am allowed to give this speech without being arrested. Everyone on this Council has swore an oath to preserve protect and defend the Constitution of the United States, by voting to declare a state of emergency or Martial Law, they have, (in my opinion) violated that oath and should step down from office. Of course they will not, because ” by their actions” they have shown that they do not believe in free speech of the rights of individuals. They should be ashamed of what they have done, but they are not.

Now that the Chief is in charge of everything how should we address him, Chief, Chairman Jeff, Supreme Chancellor Jeff, or just maybe Comrade Jeff? Only time will tell.

 I would like to commend the 10 Police Officer that have put their careers on the line to expose the Chief for what he is. In closing I will say let the word go forth to friend and foe alike that Quartzsite is no longer a place for freedom loving people and that the Constitution no longer has any meaning. I will not rest until this great experiment implemented by the architects of this great nation is reinstated and the freedom of speech for individuals and accountability of elected officials is returned to the great city of Quartzsite.

Thank you.


Those that came to Quartzsite today to see the strange methodology utilized by  the council were not disappointed. There were no surprises, though, the council conducted their 'illegal meeting' as thought it were legitimate.

"I wonder who it is they think they've fooled," Foster said.

Foster further charged in an interview on popular talk show INFOWARS.COM that he has been reading the e-mails sent to the council and other officials and that they were all legitimate efforts to communicate with the town and its representatives. "There were no threats," Foster stated.

The meeting today brought reporters from throughout the area and there was a strong police presence -- apparently due to the allegation that the town has been receiving threats. This, too, was the justification used to declare a 'State of Emergency' to remove Foster from his position of athority as Mayor.


Concerned over the abuses perpetrated in Quartzsite, Yale educated attorney Stewart Rhodes is moving forward to defend those damaged...


"Quartzsite has again found itself been catapaulted into the mainstream media. It's not as if it should have come as a surprise to people that sooner or later some level of accountability would have to happen," Foster stated Monday. "The problem is that the council didn't see it and refused to support demands to see the books or properly respond to any other problems or issues brought by citizens. They just continued to run the town as if they owned it -- unfortunately for our citizens -- and making a mockery of the law in the process. People elected me to effect change."

Foster's outspoken approach and sudden Internet presence will likely  enable the town to recover from the problems plaguing it -- with the assistance of those in charge of the investigations.  "The complaints are primarily that officials  consistently treated the laws as though they were only for the citizens -- and not something they needed to even consider for themselves. Over time it just became worse to the point of ridiculousness," Foster stated.

"It is hard not to criticize the council when they were repeatedly warned to stop what they were doing -- Foster had a right to demand those books, had every right to  be treated with the respect and priviledge due the position of a Mayor elected by his constituents," Jennifer Jones, the woman arrested -- and defended -- by the Mayor, stated. "They just wouldn't play by the rules and they hide, have secret meetings, pander to Alex [Alexandra] Taft. This council went so far into sheer stupidity." As the world looks on, the overall consensus seems to be that Jones she may have a very valid point.

Overwhelmingly in support of Mayor Foster, the 'noise' has reached an amazing crescendo as people who have watched the video have weighed in on the issue and have indicated the lengths to which the council went to quash free speech were outrageous. "That, and the level of misconduct -- on all levels -- attributable to the sitting council is so egregious as to cause people to call for their resignations," Foster said, "People seem to see Quartzsite as another Bell [California.] Maybe even worse."

of people are following what's happening in Quartzsite. 'Lawsuit City,' a phrase coined by national media analyst and reporter Alex Jones, [INFOWARS.COM] seemingly represents the opinion of those weighing in across the globe. The WASHINGTON POST STORY HERE.

The county Sheriff, Don Lowry, has reportedly advised that the Sheriff's Office will be 'standing down' and will not be answering calls for dealing with the rtake the situation in Quartzsite.

The big story today is whether or not the town is under martial law. As Ed Foster, the Mayor, reported in the MINESHAFT, there is no difference between a State of Emergency and Martial Law since law is suspended as are citizens' rights during such an incident. Jennifer Jones made an appearance on national media again today and has won the support of hundreds of those people  studying in detail what has transpired in Quartzsite. Quartzsite is being reported in the media as a perfect example of what a corrupt town liks like. 

Quartzsite Corruption Brings Martial Law

Update: Another emergency meeting has been declared at Quartzsite AZ Town Hall Tuesday morning at 10 am local time

Upset citizens nationwide gets corrupt police chief to declare state of emergency. The police cheif and corrupt council members are afraid of threating emails with a threating tone. I thought police chiefs were supposed to be able to face any threat against his city. This is clearly the case of pure corruption and the guilty look of "i dont want to lose my job and my power over this town".

Hard Times Ahead, Civil Unrest Coming

WASHINGTON -- Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner says many Americans will face hard times for a long time to come. 
He says President Barack Obama rescued the United States from a second Great Depression and will keep working to strengthen the economy. But Geithner says it will be some time before many people feel like the country is recovering. Geithner tells NBC television's "Meet the Press" that it's a very tough economy. He says that for a lot of people "it's going to feel very hard, harder than anything they've experienced in their lifetime now, for a long time to come."

But don't worry, the foreign central Bank owned US Army is well prepared for economic disaster and civil unrest due to a terrible economy.

Obama Attempting To Set Up Dictatorship

There can no longer be any doubt, the office of the President is being transformed in to a dictatorial command system.

Time Magazine Says Constitution No Longer Needed

In a shocking cover article, the July 4th issue of Time Magazine presents the story of the United States Constitution, and makes the claim that it is outdated and unnessacary. The writer presents the fact that the United States constitution has indeed been under attack and undermined since its creation, however fails to admit that his own article is another wound to the integrity of the United States Constitution. The truth of the matter is the United States is facing a constitutional crisis in its modern history. The office of presidency has overshadowed its traditional constitutional role, overstepping checks and balances in the legitimate political structure, ignoring Congress and ignoring the public. Decades of Presidential Executive Orders have overturned the key principals set in law in the United States Constitution and its approved amendments. A shadow military industrial complex government has formed, just as former President John F Kennedy had warned the people about prior to his untimely assassination.

The argument that the Constitution is no longer needed simply because, as the article implies, "the founding fathers did not foresee our current events", is a false argument about the vital need for a strong Constitutional document. Any country and nation requires a solid Constitution in which to base it's laws and Government apon. In fact, the United States Constitution is the best founding document any country or nation could aspire to have. A system of solid checks and balances to insure lawful and peaceful government, private property rights, freedom of speech, independence and sovereignty, and a strong currency and economic system. These are all things any nation would aspire for, and they are all provided for under the United States Constitution.
The fact that Time Magazine would stoop to the low point of printing an article like this for the week of July 4th is in itself an attack on the founding of its own country. Independence Day is a day millions of Americans celebrate the many things that made America a great country. How sad it is to see this kind of journalism as this hit piece on the founding document of the United States.

The article tries to appeal to a younger generation, familiar with Facebook, Twitter, Google, texting, and so on, however fails to miss the fact that the so called "younger generation" is largely concerned with the future of the United States, and the rest of the world. In fact many youth are greatly concerned with the direction the globalist elite are taking the planet, and the tyranny that they are unleashing apon us. The truth is the tyranny of the New World Order is actively assaulting the youth, such as at the G20 meeting in Pittsburgh in 2009, where juiced up power tripping riot police went out of their way in the middle of the night to the local College and start beating on students, even making their way into the dorms. These students largely were not involved in protesting, and in fact where just hanging around on campus, eating and listening to music, things many young people do. With the young generation being connected to new social media, Facebook, Twitter and the like, the truth is reaching the masses of the so called "younger generation" in the interests of freedom and liberty.

2012 presidential candidate Ron Paul in fact has the support of many young people and older alike in the cause of freedom and liberty. As Ron Paul makes it clear, many in society, including the younger generation, is aware that the Constitution provides strong economic prosperity if only a truly Constitutional government was restored.

This Time hit piece will fail, and has already failed. It is a key example of how the mainstream media have become dieing dinosaurs who have lost all of their credibility. The fact that civilians and the public has to become true journalists and challenge the mainstream media, to do the jobs that the mainstream media reporters owe us shows the scope of this conspiracy. A push to shut down free speech on the internet is coming, as the New World Order tries to clamp down on the insemination of knowledge. As we awaken to their agendas, we will expose these measures.

The truth remains, the United States Constitution is vital. It will never go out of date.

Mutiny in Arizona, Mayor under fire

A viral video hit the internet just two weeks ago, where an shocking and interesting story is taking place. High level government corruption is being exposed in a small town in southern Arizona.

Being raised in North America, I've always thought that public officials and government acted professionally, were intellectually honest, aspired for truth, liberty, and running their town, city, and country in the best way possible. Sadly, I quickly learned this is absolutely not the case. And in Quartzsite, Arizona, this was recently highlighted. As I just stated, I always thought that a Mayor would be respected by council members, the public and even law enforcement officers. In fact, I've always thought that no intelligent citizen would ever want to cross with the Mayor. You would think that a Mayor would be able to fire anyone who he develops serious issues with. But to see a Police Chief and council members openly violate the orders of the Mayor in his official capacity while organizing and controlling a meeting in which the public was invited to ask council members questions is shocking, and displays just how corrupt the North American system is. In fact, this council member was in such a rush to remove this woman from speaking at the meeting that he insisted not only on asking the Police Chief to remove the woman from the room, even though the Mayor wanted her to speak, but to violate the proceedings of the meeting to vote on an item that was not in the agenda and could not be voted on at the time.

This shakedown on free speech across the United States from city and government officials exposes how corrupt to the core the country has become. Elected bureaucrats who despise the citizens, despise free speech, despise the United States Constitution, and who have sold them selves over to greed, corruption and evil. At this point, many of us citizens just feel like throwing our arms up and saying "ok you win already" "we know its not a fair system so why do we even try anymore". However, the truth is we can stand up to this nationwide corruption and declare that we are taxpaying citizens, we have our unalienable rights given to us through the Constitution, the Deceleration of Independence, the Charter of Rights, and the magna carta. You are in violation of your duties and oaths and responsibilities and are completely corrupt. In fact, you have become so corrupt, you have exposed your corruption yourselves. We didn't even have to do anything.

Watch the video below, and please leave a comment.

Senate Bill S978 will criminalize most of the internet

A draconian new bill recently introduced to congress, S978, aims to declare any posting or embedding of material that infringes on copyright criminal. Any streaming or public showing of such material that has more then 10 views within a 180 day period, and which is valued to the copyright holder to be over $2,500, could result in jail time up to 5 years.

The shocking part of this bill is its vague and generic wording and its blatant attempt at shutting down any transmission of "copyrighted material". Gone is the creative commons, open source, citizens right to comment or archive any public source of "copyrighted material". It would seem at quick glance that the sponsors and lobbyists of this bill have a very flawed view of modern internet technology. The truth of the matter is that this is a targeted and thought out bill which is only one step towards the complete shakedown on public broadcasting of official "copyrighted" material. This anti-internet view is not shared by its sponsor, Amy Klobuchar, alone. Senator Jay Rockefeller recently stated this shocking anti-internet viewpoint, saying that he feels that it would be "better if the internet never existed".

These Congress critters who support such an anti-internet viewpoint are not alone. They are largely supported by Big Business corporations, such as Sony, Microsoft, Google, and others. In fact, according to, some of the corporate lobbies supporting S978 include

  • American Federation of Television and Radio Artists
  • Directors Guild of America
  • International Alliance of Theatrical Stage Employees, Moving Picture Technicians, Artists and Allied Crafts of the United States
  • Screen Actors Guild

The fact that many of the largest producers of copyrighted material, from video games to news clips, movies, music, books and more are large supporters of this anti-internet bill that seeks to put many people in jail for sharing such material with more then 10 people. The real truth of the matter is that the dieing mainstream machine is furious at the power of the internet, activists, and the citizens in the power of alternative media in exposing the coverups and lies rife through out the mainstream media. Citizen media are on the ground reporting on top stories, such as the yearly Bilderberg group meetings, held this year in St. Moritz Switzerland, exposing top bankers, corporate CEOs and top politicians meeting secretly to plan out their agenda for the next year. In fact, not only are these elite media and corporate executives meeting secretly, and carrying out a large media blackout on the event, many politicians that attend the Bilderberg meetings are breaking the laws of their various host countries, such as the United States Logan Act.

This, and other activities largely supported by the internet, have pushed the elite power structure to take a second look at the internet and its power, and forcefully restructure it under their terms and control, which will ultimately lead to the elimination of free speech on the internet.

The power of the internet and the citizens that use it can not be understated, especially in the matter of the S978 bill. This story has gathered much opposition around the world from serious gamers on Youtube and other social networking sites who rely on streaming video of gaming tournaments and skirmishes in thier hobby and industry. In fact, many video reviewers and other commentators even are sponsored on Youtube and are able to make an income for posting videos on social media that more then often features at least a small amount of "copyrighted" material.

Based on the ambiguity of this bill and its complete attack towards free speech on the internet, this bill likely will not pass. However, if the public is not vigilant, this wording could easily be snuck into another bill by these sneaky anti-internet creatures who are high ranking in the international power structure.
