I can fix everything I own, except my iPhone, but I’ll eventually learn how that works too. I was doing routine maintenance on my computer when I bent a pin on the processor. I immediately got on my iPhone and ordered a new one.
It took too long to arrive and I missed last Sunday’s deadline to publish The Freedom Fighter. I tried my best to write last week’s edition on my iPhone, but it is not a suitable alternative.
The Freedom Fighter is back and I am pleased to say that the Department of Homeland Security didn’t shut me down. Not yet.
Since 2010 The DHS has been surveilling and collecting information on, “U.S. and foreign private sector officials and spokespersons who make public statements or provide public updates; 5) names of anchors, newscasters, or on-scene reporters who are known or identified as reporters in their post or article or who use traditional and/or social media in real-time to keep their audience situationally aware and informed;” – DHS
Is all this needed to say that DHS may look up numbers in the phonebook? Was the DHS allowed to read a blog, newspaper, or watch a news broadcast before these rules were written?
I think the DHS wants to make sure you keep sleepwalking. Why do they need a dossier of names of those who keep you situationally aware and informed?
Andrew Breitbart was known for making people situationally aware and informed. The information he presented has caused people in the government to lose their jobs.
Was this announcement at the 2012 CPAC the final straw for the Obama administration? I’m sure they wish they had the SpeechJammer that night.
Imagine how this device is going to affect freedom of speech and situational awareness.
Was Breitbart’s PII collected by the DHS? Was he at the top of the hit list?
The unanimous Declaration of the thirteen united States of America states:
When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.
We hold these truths to be self-evident… That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among, Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, – That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness… when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such a Government… – Declaration of Independence
Why is the DHS so concerned about the press? We are supposed to have freedom of the press. The Declaration of Independence says it is our duty to install a just government. If the Government was right; I don’t think it would fight us when we expose its corruption and seek to correct it.
The press should not be a threat to a just, righteous and moral Government.
