Domestic 5th Columnists Pre-9/11
Image [found here]
All citizens who blog, upload videos, have music MP3 files on their computer or have received audio and video attachments in their emails that they did not ask for might be subject to 5 years, or so, in prison and being labeled a felon for life. Citizens of other countries will be face being sent to the US to face prosecution for these same "offenses". The US has bases and troops stationed all over the world to enforce these corporate/banking laws that these entities bribe US politicians in the tunes of millions to enforce. Video and audio files that corporations wanted you to download are used now as an excuse of copyright infringement. Laws that corporations want to be law after they provided citizens with the tools to infringe on copyrights. Corporations can take over the internet with new laws that they bribed politicians to have in place. [video embedded here]
Those who started crime watches, or were outspoken at meetings in their communities were cataloged by police as potential problems and put on lists for false arrests, property confiscation, job loss, for their families to be broken up, for set ups using police informants, and possible prison terms. Small business, rental property, and commercial property owners who did not have connections were also put on lists to be taken down. 5th Columnists were used pre-9/11 to soften up citizens for the eventual corporate/banker takeover of America. Some of America's owners run the US Government offshore.
What laws are being passed now by Congress should alarm all Americans who are paying attention.
Ritt Goldstein fled the State of Connecticut to seek political asylum in Sweden after proposing Civilian Oversight of Police at a special legislative hearing held in front of the Judiciary Committee, Hartford, Connecticut, December 1996:
It is common for police to use police informants to stalk, terrorize, threaten the lives of those who propose civilian oversight of police to elected officials. These informants are also given incentives to attack citizens on their property. Police will arrest only the honest, taxpaying, home owning, family raising victim of the police informant criminal attacker. I know, I suffered this Connecticut State Police brutality and judicial misconduct conspiracy in Stafford Springs, Connecticut.

|How was the term "fifth column" coined?|
| Great question! The Fifth Column. The Fourth Estate. The Third Man. All of these phrases can get confusing. According to Britannica.com, a fifth column refers to any clandestine group or faction of subversive agents who attempt to undermine a nation's solidarity. |
Who came up with the phrase, and what's with the columns? Emilio Mola Vidal, a Nationalist general during the Spanish Civil War (1936-39), originally coined the term. As four of his army columns moved on Madrid, the general referred to his militant supporters within the capital as his "fifth column," intent on undermining the loyalist government from within.
So the fifth column is a group of secret sympathizers or supporters of an enemy that engage in espionage or sabotage within defense lines or national borders. Recent conflicts have had their fifth columns: Iraqi insurgents in the Gulf War, Cuban rebels in the Bay of Pigs. Those columns didn't fare quite as well.

Tech at Night: Kill SOPA. Now.
Posted by Neil Stevens (Diary)

Nothing in this post shall be construed to impose a belief that Lamar Smith would round up every American into MPAA-run detention centers if Chris Dodd suggested it would be good for big business.
Does that sound like a stupid way to begin a post, and does it suggest that I’m about to say the opposite? Well, that’s how the Manager’s Amendment version of SOPA starts off, claiming that no matter what the bill says, it’s not a prior restraint on free speech.
Of course, restrictions of results provided by Internet Search Engines amount to just that: prior restraint of their free expression of future results. Google and others, under SOPA, are told what they can or can’t publish before they publish it.
Kill. The. Bill.
And it’s still an affirmative defense that a government order of censorship is technically or economically unreasonable, meaning the burden of proof is on the ISP to show that the government is ordering literally the impossible. This again means that ISPs effectively will have to go out of business if they can’t afford to fight the government in court, and even AT&T couldn’t afford to do that.
SOPA: it’ll kill jobs. It’ll censor the Internet. It’ll turn us from leader to backwater online. GoDaddy backed off of supporting it. Erick Erickson has come out against it, and in favor of primarying those who vote wrongly. Heritage and Beregond add to the forming consensus both against the bill and for an understanding just how dangerous the bill is.
The President, already under fundraising pressure this time around, is being told to veto it anyway. The petition has met his standard and the White House promises a response from Barack Obama. That they’re delaying suggests to me the answer could go either way.
In other news, The administration’s unwillingness to be transparent about LightSquared, as demanded by Chuck Grassley now threatens the proper functioning of the FCC. If Michael Copps quits before Grassley is satisfied, the FCC will shut down.
The FCC needs transparency, too. Suddenly approving a modified version of the AT&T/Qualcomm spectrum deal surprised me, after previous signals that FCC Chairman Julius Genachowski was going to change the rules specially for AT&T.
That said, I still don’t want the FCC to be shut down. As bad as some of their decisions have been, they serve a necessary role. Approving spectrum transfers is important, as is enabling white space use.
I’d rather the FCC opened up about LightSquared. The case the firm has made looks reasonable. Forbes claims the GPS issues are already fixed, but GPS makers simply refuse to make the necessary changes, and would rather simply cut costs at LightSquared’s expense. That’s not fair, if true, and the FCC has nothing to hide if it rules for LightSquared for that reason.
So what are they hiding?
Be a HERO and Help STOP SOPA Now!! I'll tell you How! This Video that Must Be SHARED!
