The War on Terror Will be Never-ending

Alongside the willing sacrifice of privacy by a naive and lazy public, is the enforced forfeiture of civil liberties under the guise of the ‘War on Terror’. Government legislation has significantly increased surveillance, data collection, and security measures ‘for your own safety‘. And more sophisticated and intrusive methods are coming soon. England is already 90% of the way to an Orwellian society…we aren’t far behind…America is in the top 5 (or in the bottom 5 depending on your viewpoint) for the most surveillance of it’s own citizens.

We need to talk to all those computer and high technology geeks who keep inventing evil and intrusive technology to crush and take away human freedoms. Tell them to stop it. Buzz it up. Put on peer pressure. Let them know there are really evil people out there that misuse technology they invent and  that they themselves, and their children, will be negatively affected.

Americans need to get off their lazy asses and start talking to their Senators and Congressmen and let them know that we are really sick of what they are doing with our various rights. Are we going to have to fight for them again? I’m not sure that many politicians will actually try to fight the crap going on in Washington…we have to at least try. Talk to your friends and neighbors, your co-workers, your in-laws, anyone you can corner for a casual talk and plant a bug in their brain about how wrong it is.

The Whitehouse

Ex-Boss of Englands MI5 service (James Bonds employer :-)) says that “Terrorist threat was ‘exploited to curb civil liberties’
Security measures brought in after September 11 attacks ‘undermined the rule of law’

This is something really important for all of us in this country…and the world actually.


Internet Taxing and Other Bothers

FCC approves tax for Internet “wiretapping.” Isn’t this dandy? We have to pay for our own invasion of privacy.


Police in London want to censor demonstrator’s speech and placards. May only make politically correct signs and their speech will be subject to censorship. “Proposed powers would clash with article 10 of the European convention on human rights which protects freedom of expression.” How Orwellian.,,1957831,00.html


Got a war you want to sell to your countrymen? Go to this site and place your order for propaganda and mind altering “News” to make the country and people agree with you.

“As the world moves further away from the 20th century concept of the Cold War, it becomes increasingly clear that the very nature of warfare itself has changed. The old style conflicts were about overpowering the enemy and winning ground. The new wars are about ideas, belief systems and ideologies. The battle is no longer about winning territory; it is about winning minds.”
“SCL offers various solutions based on this methodology to help countries in specific governmental areas such as defense, foreign affairs, internal security, health, finance and tourism.
In a world where the perception is the reality, all countries need to have the capability to manage their own perceptual alignment – otherwise someone else will.”
The OpCentres allow for powerful PSYOP campaigns to be conducted, which can engender support within the national community for proposed military action and “develop national resilience and behavioral compliance for homeland security issues”.

The wordofme believes that England is using this service to placate any resistance to their draconian surveillance and increasingly Orwellian laws and practices. England has almost no credible resistance against what is happening there. They are nice little sheep.


Federal, State, and Local police have been doing this ever since the Patriot Act passed. They take the laws that were to be used to counterattack terrorists and use it to make end runs around laws they consider to restrictive, such as the “Constitution.”

“U.S. News has identified nearly a dozen cases in which city and county police, in the name of homeland security, have surveilled or harassed animal-rights and antiwar protesters, union activists, and even library patrons surfing the Web.”


Face-recognition software was successfully tested during Super Bowl XXXV in Tampa, Florida, with approximately 100,000 faces being scanned and identified. (Several law-breakers – mostly ticket scalpers – were noticed, but no arrests were made, since it was just a “dry run”)


In an earlier post I talked about the Federal Governments intrusion into the world of OUR Internet. They (the Feds) seem to think they own the whole kit and kaboodle. Mr. Mike McConnell, our Chief Spy in Washington, says: “The government must have the ability to read all the information crossing the Internet in the United States in order to protect it from abuse.”


Ol’ Bush just lies and lies and gets away with it. There are impeachable crimes going on all the time and nobody cares.


And if all others accepted the lie which the Party imposed -if all records told the same tale — then the lie passed into history and became truth. ‘Who controls the past,’ ran the Party slogan, ‘controls the future: who controls the present controls the past.’ And yet the past, though of its nature alterable, never had been altered. Whatever was true now was true from everlasting to everlasting. It was quite simple. All that was needed was an unending series of victories over your own memory. ‘Reality control’, they called it: in Newspeak, ‘doublethink’.

National ID Cards are Coming

Happened to surf to a Scottish newspaper today for a article on government issued ID cards and ran in to a real cornucopia of proof that England and associated countries are now officially controlled by Big Brother.

They will deny it, but the proof is in the newspapers and online copies thereof.

Some random examples follow:

The “Scotsman” newspaper-main page-for stories on Big Brother. It’s really started in
Scotland, UK, and Ireland

Power of police to take DNA samples, and keep on file forever, for any arrests, even
littering, and even if no charges brought

Authorities in UK and Europe will take fingerprints or iris scans of all air travelers.

Move to take and keep ID info on millions of children and make info publicly available….Law did pass.

Real life British spy heroine says ID cards are a present to terrorists and criminals. Law finally passed anyway.

Te UK will sell private information from the National ID card to private businesses to help defray costs that are now expected to be much more than estimated. BIG surprise, eh.

Did you ever notice that the actual end cost of government projects ALWAYS, at the very least, doubles if not quintuples. And the politicians are ALWAYS surprised. And politicians and their friends ALWAYS grow richer. And yet we victims/taxpayers never catch on. Wonder why that is?

I have heard that people in the ID card business are saying it won’t be long before these cards will contain your complete DNA profile. Authorities will be able to download your complete history, including where you ate breakfast that morning, what tattoos you have, what scars or birthmarks are etched on your body. Before too long a scan of your National ID card will reveal all….and you have no say about it, sucker.

All of this technical prowess and ability would not be possible, of course, without the computer and internet. Makes one wonder about how good this e Revolution is.

Oh, by the way, America rolls out National ID in 2008

From Cnet:
“Paul warned that the legislation, called the Real ID Act, gives unfettered authority to the Department of Homeland Security to design State ID cards and driver’s licenses. Among the possibilities: biometric information such as retinal scans, fingerprints, DNA data and RFID tracking technology.”

“Show me your papers citizen. Why are you loitering here?” He says, as he scans your ID card through the WiFi scanner mounted on his arm.

Thought Crime in England

An interesting case just came to an end in England today. Samina Malik, a 23 year old English Muslim woman, was sentenced At the Old Bailey yesterday, by Judge Peter Beaumont, the Recorder of London.

He sentenced her to nine months’ prison, suspended for 18 months, and ordered her to carry out 100 hours of unpaid work. after already having been in custody for 5 months and spending 9 months of “extremely rigorous” bail conditions which were “tantamount to house arrest” (Lawyer talk).

Her crime was being stupid.

And she wrote poetry, which unfortunately for her, was sympathetic to Muslim Terrorists, and got her noticed.

And she visited the wrong websites.

“Samina Malik was being prosecuted in effect for a thought crime because she had
downloaded some material from the internet which anyone could download.”
Mr Bunglawala (Lawyer) said: “The case demonstrated how ill-conceived and incredibly broad-ranging the law is under Section 58 of the Terrorism Act. Teenagers download some quite nihilistic material every day and they are not prosecuted.”

In a statement, the Crown Prosecution Service said: “Samina Malik was not prosecuted for
writing poetry. Ms. Malik was convicted of collecting information, without reasonable excuse, of a kind likely to be useful to a person committing or preparing an act of terrorism.”

“The Terrorism Act and the restrictions it imposes on the personal freedom exist to protect
this country, its interests here and abroad, its citizens, and those who visit here. Its protection
embraces us all. Its restrictions apply to us all, whatever our personal religious or political

Having read parts of her two poems that were in evidence, I don’t have a lot of sympathy for her.
She is not a teenager anymore and the reality of life in England is that there is a very large Muslim population, and the average WASP is very uneasy, after suffering Subway bombings by homegrown Muslims.

The Mullah’s in England do not seem to condemn their homegrown terrorists very strongly, which only adds to the problem.

Muslims the world over need to understand that governments and people that Muslim terrorists target are going to react very quickly and very harshly. They need to teach that to their children. Terrorism will not be tolerated.

Governments also need to watch very closely how they approach “thought crimes” as there is a real chance of sinking to the level of the antagonist governments in the novel 1984….

That “Collecting Information, Without Reasonable Excuse.” really worries me. How about you?
