It's hard to believe this is real.
Surely news organizations will not submit to this,
and challenge it on 1st amendment grounds? Orwell is rolling in his grave.


I agree.

I first heard about it while watching FOX news this morning...and they were sketchy (nervous) about reporting on it....

Boss, we have a team here working on a NSA story, they have a whistleblower, high ranking. What do I do now?

Send us the names and all the information you have via the secure network and we will take it from there.



Absolutely!!!

This does not sit well...

Basically, all the news stations will be forced to sound like MSNBC


Hey there is an idea that may make all of this faster and easier for the administration, create a domestic crisis, abolish all news networks except MSNBC, and NPR on radio, blackout the internet, via an executive order that also declares martial law, and suspends elections.

Complete dictatorship in a few easy steps.

The sad thing is, these "monitors" need not do anything and it will likely affect news reporting.

Imagine you are running a business and the Mafia sends in a "monitor" to do nothing but learn ....

Imagine you are political group who is interested in promoting conservative values and the FBI sends in someone to "monitor" your efforts so they can learn about your management system and how decisions are made....

Chilling....

Sounds very much like events prior to WWII... Time to get in good with the Admin and submit a bid for weapons production!!!
Or riot control gear...same thing.

You know folks, something else occurred to me on this.

As much as we think of these as censors, and it's hard not to given the big picture of what we see happening in the world around us today? They may have another purpose to consider. It's not an improvement, I'd say....but important to consider, nonetheless.

If the Government were expecting some major disaster or other event (..as I've never stopped wondering about, given the very REAL preparations actual national authorities made last year and the year before that in particular..) then, putting minders in to insure news flow in the initial stages of whatever they'd be expecting, would stay quiet, would be a standard move to make toward the end and close to whatever it would be.

People have asked about Government keeping news of Asteroids or some terrestrial disaster they could see coming a big secret, and traditionally? I've never given that much credence. Too many cooks in the kitchen of news across far too many organizations to make it happen, especially while media all works in near direct competition, even among allied companies.

.....Unless a common denominator unified control across them all. Like a man or two at each who ALL have just one ID in their back pocket, and it's entirely unrelated to P.R. concerns or ratings. Just control of, perhaps, one major line of events yet to come?

While the news does compete to an extent, they utilize the prisoners dilemma from game theory but instead of economics the game is psychological subversion of free will.

Anyways, on the topic of a disaster - it is strange how the zombie craze has been generated. Some government agency (I think it was CIA) said that a nation prepared for a zombie outbreak is a nation prepared for any calamity. It's not really about zombies, but about any disaster leading to chaos. It does seem that they are aware of a threat, but there has always been one threat or another. Nothing really changed there. Anything from an asteroid to infectious disease to foreign attacks to economic collapse to weather....disaster is always around the corner. By the mercy of God, we normally avoid it.

Textbook fascism.

Keeping the pons in line I see.
They really don't like the media going against the grain. Just parrot the government certified script please.
Thank you very much.

This focus on zombies was a little weird and sophmoric for humor when it first popped up in official Gov't material, training scenarios and other things. Then it kinda went creepy and downright odd. Now it's almost scary, because I'm starting to think they mean it, and think (right or wrong) they know something we don't.

There are two different 'threats' more or less one step off the headline level of awareness right now that I'd say could, in some ways, be classified that way if it crossed over into a major segment of population impacted at or around the same time.

I'd be real happy if they kinda dropped that, if it's humor ..or got off the secrecy nonsense if it's anything less than entirely funny at this stage. Not all they are doing these past few years makes sense...even to consider it being used against Americans in some general martial law scenario some would see (and simple math could never support, IMO).

What two threats are you referring to?

I figured the zombie thing was just a way to have fun with creating a nation prepared for real threats. However, there have been a few diseases that were similar to a zombie outbreak if I remember right, but not on this side of the world and they were contained easily.

vCJD is one of them, and if you're not well familiar with that disease and that specific form (the variant) of it, you may want to take a moment to read through that page because this is one where the devil ..or ticking timer, as it's more appropriate to say, is in those nasty little details. It's a real ugly one.


There is another out there, as yet undiagnosed...but the signs are sure as clear as vCJD. The Florida 'Causeway Cannibal' who ate a guys face off like it was a routine thing to do, then laughed after taking a police bullet to the chest, before needing a whole magazine to drop. That story might even have ended somewhere out where T&C doesn't go ...except toxicology on the whacko was clear and clean. He'd not been 'on' anything. He just snapped and went what I've come to term 'Hollywood Crazy' to describe the cases.

Another case in Kentucky had a guy really do some heavy and specific damage with a knife, in a matter of the moments it took people from the store side of the store/residence to come running to the screams. He'd been reported walking out, casually and as if nothing unusual had just occurred at all. He was arrested later, since the first there were too busy trying to save the woman, who was a fatality....and the guy's own mother.

Those are just two...so to answer your question, and perhaps clarify? One known and one clear but as yet unknown threat out there that can turn people into rather base level reactive predators, for lack of a better description. Fact can be odder than fiction at times and lets hope examples remain exceptionally rare.

Whew! First time I've had time to sit and read the entire thread...I'm really pretty speechless.
My mind kept going back in time to the days of Nixon and how ecstatic he would have been...and how we would have had even more civil unrest...

Hey, perhaps someone will start a trendy tweetster or twickster trend....and it will all be good again!

Sorry folks, I try to always find a positive but this time I'm truly stymied by the abject ignorance portrayed on some of these posts. I suppose it is the result of "education by tv" combined with education by the state.
The really sad thing to me is that I see no way to combat it...belief in political parties has replaced belief in self and a higher power. That situation didn't exist when I was marching against the Vietnam war so I'm at a loss to grasp it.
Now, in order to conform with T&C, I will say no more.

The intrusion of Obama's FCC into news rooms is one of the events on a list of several Rubicon "danger signs" to come. I don't use those terms lightly.

The next step for Obama's FCC will be to silence certain talk radio hosts or persuade them to "change their tune". This has already been in play for about a one and a half years and those certain hosts won't openly talk about it. More pressure will come soon, if not by political pressure and negotiations, then by physical means. But it will happen. Alternative media will also be under heavy attack.

By far, the most important and key event on the list yet to take place is the eradication of one conservative Supreme Court Justice, made to appear either as an accident or by natural cause. The most likely nominee tipped his hand the other week with his prophetic comments on the reappearance of internment camps. His comments were more of a hint, rather than simple subjective thought on legal precedence.

Once this event takes place, a rapid snowball effect will occur and our government will mutate to the point where the serpent will be plainly visible to all. Time to run for the hills will be short and will be of little benefit.

2014 and 2016 elections will be rigged and rife with vote fraud and the media will be forced to ignore it. The socialist element has gained too much ground through the current administration and will not let it go at any cost.

I might wait until the morning to read about what you posted because I don't want to ruin my night. I will respond to it when I read it.

But I will add this - this guy is one of those drugged up entertainment industry guys who did some zombie stuff: en.wikipedia.org...

But he was off of PCP. Still, it shows that the mind frame can be externally influenced and zombies can be created through drugs given the right circumstances. So, both drugs and diseases can do some very strange things to peoples minds.

I am scared to ask but...I wonder what they found out and kept secret about Syphillus.

Why are all of the songs on the radio about sex?

I'm probably reading into things too much, but it is an out-there possibility that I am not.

What's really spooky is that the FCC has ZERO jurisdiction over newspapers and the Internet, yet its commissioner is planning to police content within these information instruments as well.

source: reason.com...


Ajit Pai's piece doesn't mention it, but the commission also plans to look at newspaper and Internet content, areas that are outside the FCC's regulatory dominion.

We are there already. Editorial decisions on facebook are being examined by checking out what kind of things you start typing and then decide not to post.

Slate article on facebook study of self-censorship


This little post here, tucked away on page two, deserves a thread of its own. What a creepy thing for Facebook to do.


Thanks!

Reading the article now.

I remember hearing about this sorta thing when Edward Snowden stated that the NSA has this capability also, and use it to determine things in emails, tetx msgs, etc and the delete.

Even though you backspaced and deleted, the information was still saved.

And yet another finger tightens around the throat of the American Populace.

Thanks 0bama voters. And thank you Progressives.


“You know I taught constitutional law for 10 years, I take the Constitution very seriously. The biggest problems that we’re facing right now had to do with George Bush trying to bring more and more power into the executive branch and not go through Congress at all, and that’s what I intend to reverse when I’m president of the United States of America.”

“Given the grave threats that we face, our national security agencies must have the capability to gather intelligence and track down terrorists before they strike, while respecting the rule of law and the privacy and civil liberties of the American people. There is also little doubt that the Bush Administration, with the cooperation of major telecommunications companies, has abused that authority and undermined the Constitution by intercepting the communications of innocent Americans without their knowledge or the required court orders.”

"When I am president, there will be no more illegal wiretapping of American citizens. No more national security letters to spy on citizens who are not suspected of a crime. No more tracking citizens who do nothing more than protest a misguided war."

-Candidate Barack Obama-

I think the Obama voters voted for this candidate - anybody seen him lately
