The Tide is Turning

And now for some good news, for a change.

The Eye is being driven back. SOPA has been stopped, in particular; and I continue to read about how more people are waking up and becoming aware of our problems than ever before.

I've been getting tired of the consistently negative focus of this site lately, in truth. There are more positive events taking place right now, than possibly at any other time in human history; and yet this site focuses almost exclusively on depravity and violence. I'm guilty of this as well; I know I was posting a lot of rubbish about police brutality a week or so back. I came to realise, however, that the increase in police brutality has been deliberately orchestrated, in order to try and provoke civil unrest. So if we cover it and focus on it here, we're actually playing directly into the cabal's hands.

Seriously though, people; stop filling this site with negative crap. Look at globalgoodnews, beforeitsnews, and other similar sites, and start posting links to all of the good things that are going on in the world at the moment. Plenty of them are "alternative," and likely to be of interest to people here, as well; the only difference is, they portray the cabal as losing, which it is...not winning.

I think when it comes down to it a lot of these good and bad things that you refer to are merely opinions. Some might get confused when you say to only post "good" things.

Sorry to be negative

But I think that if you're on a site like this, you should take the time to think outside the box.

Everyone is so happy that they "beat" SOPA. Where was everyone when the NDAA was being changed/passed?
Did it ever occur to you that maybe SOPA was nothing more than a coverup for the NDAA?

You see, in the NDAA it states that you can be justified as a terrorist if you oppose government law. That means that people who oppose SOPA would fall under that category and be applicable for indefinite detainment.

Where was everyone when it was time to fight THAT bill?
Is the internet more important than our lives?

The SOPA bill was obsolete from the start. The US government already has a bill in place for an internet kill-switch and the ability to take down any sites they feel Americans should not be able to view.
Its one of the executive orders and it can be put in place whenever they feel its time to act on it.

This is what I see.. A bill that was signed with very little hype but has A LOT of effect on the people and then another bill that had A LOT of hype but contained nothing that wasn't already put into place.
The SOPA bill was just a trick to get people talking about it so that there would be more people rebelling against the government.. which is what the NDAA is for, which just so happens to be going into effect in less than 2 weeks.

I happen to agree with Fishticon.
Passage of NDAA was the final deathstroke to the Constitution which is now basically null and void.
This was a coup by our Congress and Obama to strip every American of their God-given rights.
High Treason, in other words.

But hey, the internet is saved!
Yet they can still throw you in prison for no reason and keep you indefinitely.
We need to wake up fast to what has just happened to the Republic,

Yes, the tide is turning and we are being dragged out to sea.

this is going to get messy bro..
mainstream media is BLASTING THIS #(excuse my french)

we need to help out Mr Paul and turn the heat up on NDAA
specifically the sections which are hazardous to our freedom and well being.

So NDAA is Law right now.. and SOPA is just waiting for the next kardashian sextape
to sneak through the sheeple while the sleep

reply to post by Fishticon84

What the OP is referring here is that even if, it is true, we can not let go negative events without reacting, our main focuses should be on positivity. There are always two sides with a medal, remember that.

If we focus on disadvantages of a thing, everything duplicates, more negativity will come out. If we instead focus on how this experience made us understand something important, how it helped us seeing clear about something in the shadow, and more (positivity for me it is), then we will get through anything we face easier than you, I, we might think we "actually" can.

P.S.:We all can do it, it is a matter of personal perception.
