Say good-bye to the Internet? – Tea Party Nation.

Posted by Judson Phillips

It is hard to believe that twenty years ago, the Internet as we as we know it today did not exist.  Yes, there was an Internet, but the World Wide Web did not exist.   Imagine life today without the web?  We do business over the Internet.  We get our news from the Internet.  The Internet has been the greatest innovation for free speech since the printing press.

Now this great innovation of free speech is under threat.    What is the threat and where is it coming from?

It is coming from the United Nations.

All this year, through December, the World Conference on International Telecommunications is meeting with the purpose of negotiating a new treaty to govern international telecommunications.

Russia and China are using this as an excuse to demand a lesser role for the United States in governing the Internet.   They would like the United Nations to control the Internet.    Other states, such as Brazil and South Africa have demanded the creation of a new global body to control the Internet. 


At the same time, China, Russia, Uzbekistan and Tajikistan have called for a code of conduct for the Internet that would govern activities on the Internet.  Some of them are no brainers.  Some of them include no criminal activities and not using the Internet as a tool of war. 

Section C of the “Code of Conduct” should set off all of the alarm bells.  It reads:

(c) To cooperate in combating criminal and terrorist activities that use

information and communications technologies, including networks, and in curbing the dissemination of information that incites terrorism, secessionism or extremism or that undermines other countries’ political, economic and social stability, as well as their spiritual and cultural environment;

 

Let’s see, this is coming from four of the most repressive nations in the world and they think the Internet should be controlled so that it does not undermine “political” or “social” stability.  Aren’t those the code words they use to persecute those who dissent from their regimes?

The Russians, Chinese and the third world object that the United States has so much control over the Internet. 

Too damn bad.  We created it.

The good news here is that this is a treaty.  Under the Constitution, the Senate must ratify a treaty and that takes a 2/3 vote.   That is unlikely to happen. 

Unfortunately Obama has the same respect for free speech as does the leadership of Russia or China and that is alarming.  If an agreement or treaty is bad for America, Obama is for it.  If you doubt that, look at some of the other treaties he has signed, such as the START treaty

The Internet is an invaluable tool for freedom.  Without the Internet, we would have been hard pressed to get the Tea Party movement started.  This is one instance where we cannot play catch up after the Obama regime has already signed a bad treaty.

We must stay in touch with our Senators and Congressmen to make certain they stay on the Obama regime and keep them from agreeing to a deal that would destroy the freedom we have on the Internet.

Obama works to destroy America’s military – Tea Party Nation.

Posted by Judson Phillips on January 5, 2012

Yesterday, the Obama regime announced plans to reduce the size of America’s already gutted military.  Now, the Obama regime is going even further and revealing some of America’s most important secrets to a rival that we may one day face in combat.

 From the Washington Times:

 President Obama signaled Congress this week that he is prepared to share U.S. missile defense secrets with Russia.

In the president’s signing statement issued Saturday in passing into law the fiscal 2012 defense authorization bill, Mr. Obama said restrictions aimed at protecting top-secret technical data on U.S. Standard Missile-3 velocity burnout parameters might impinge on his constitutional foreign policy authority.

As first disclosed in this space several weeks ago, U.S. officials are planning to provide Moscow with the SM-3 data, despite reservations from security officials who say that doing so could compromise the effectiveness of the system by allowing Russian weapons technicians to counter the missile. The weapons are considered some of the most effective high-speed interceptors in the U.S. missile defense arsenal.

There are also concerns that Russia could share the secret data with China and rogue states such as Iran and North Korea to help their missile programs defeat U.S. missile defenses.

Officials from the State Department and Missile Defense Agency have discussed the idea of providing the SM-3 data to the Russians as part of the so-far fruitless missile-defense talks with Moscow, headed in part of by Undersecretary of State Ellen Tauscher, who defense officials say is a critic of U.S. missile defenses.

Their thinking is that if the Russians know the technical data, it will help allay Moscow’s fears that the planned missile defenses in Europe would be used against Russian ICBMs. Officials said current SM-3s are not fast enough to catch long-range Russian missiles, but a future variant may have some anti-ICBM capabilities.

 The United States has spent untold billions developing these systems.  These are our front line of defense. 

 And Obama thinks letting the Russians in on some of our best and most important secrets is a good idea?

 Just a reminder for the Obama lovers, Russia is selling Iran military technology.  Russia is also not the best at keeping military technology off the black market.  Hundreds of nuclear weapons have been lost or unaccounted for since the fall of the Soviet Union twenty years ago. 

 It has only been a year since Obama signed the START treaty with Russia, which was a total disaster.  Russia conceded virtually nothing in that treaty and crippled America’s efforts to deploy an anti-ballistic missile shield.

 What are we going to get out of such a deal?

The answer is nothing.

 It is simply another Obama sellout.

Obama: The Pitchfork Operator-in-Chief – Tea Party Nation

Obama: The Pitchfork Operator-in-Chief – Tea Party Nation.

On March 27, 2010 President Obama met with the CEOs of the largest and most powerful financial institutions in the world. Politico reported the bank Chief Executives tried to explain to The Chief Executive the rationale behind their and their employees’ high salaries – salaries based upon the free market and the global competition for high quality employees. An agitated Obama brushed them off stating, “Be careful how you make those statements, gentlemen. The public isn’t buying that. My administration is the only thing between you and the pitchforks.”

Fast forward to the Occupy Wall Street (OWS) demonstrations and how both President Obama and Democrats have embraced protesters. Oleg Atbashian, a former citizen of the former Soviet Union predicted these demonstration and calls the strategy used by OWS the “pitchfork formula”.

Is there a historical example of the “pitchfork formula” being used for political gain? My good friend Oleg Atbashian, author of “Shakedown Socialism” believes there is. Oleg published his seminal, and satirical, book on socialism in America in 2010, long before the OWS demonstrations. Oleg wrote, as an after thought, an Appendix titled, “Obama the Pitchfork Operator: Remake of a Soviet Classic”. What Oleg wrote is prophetic and predicts the very tactics being used today by leaders of OWS (students, workers, unions, socialists, communists, anarchists, etc). According to Oleg, “Obama’s ‘Newspeak’ not only redefines existing meanings, it also abolishes ranges of ‘Oldspeak‘ meanings such as property, markets, competition, capitalism, political opposition and the rule of law. The latter is perhaps the most important ingredient missing in his new ‘pitchfork’ formula, signaling that law is now being replace with mob rule.” 
So what is Obama’s “pitchfork formula” and the “Soviet Classic” that OWS is following?

According to Oleg during the 1030s in Eastern Siberia the former Soviet Union under Joseph Stalin faced a dilemma. The Soviet system of a worker’s government, motivated by a common good morality saw the mining and production of gold decline after the 1917 Communist Revolution. Why? Because Stalin nationalized the Siberian gold mines. According to Oleg, “After the Communists nationalized Siberian gold mines, the government’s incompetence and lack of incentives sent gold production into a decline. Many of the managers and engineers had fled abroad: the foreign-made mining equipment lay in ruins. But the country badly needed gold to finance industrialization and prepare for war with Western capitalism.” So what happened next?

Nikolai Bukharin, a former community organizer in charge of industrial development, came up with an idea to infuse capitalism and lease Siberian mines to British mining companies”, according to Oleg. Stalin approved the scheme. Here is how it worked: The British mining companies reopened the Siberian mines with English managers and engineers, brought in modern new equipment and staffed the mines with newly trained workers, union workers. Oleg states, “But as soon as things began to run smoothly, local unions organized strikes at all British-run mines, protesting exploitation and demanding a significant pay raise.” Once the union demands were met within weeks another strike ensued and workers demanded even higher wages. This continued until the cost of labor became so high that the mines were no longer profitable. The British managers went to Bukharin asking him to stop the strikes. His response was he had no power over the unions. Bukharin said this was not a capitalist country where governments oppressed their workers. Bukharin said the Soviet Union was “a workers’ state, ruled by the workers who were getting angry at capitalist exploitation, and the government had to obey their will,” writes Oleg. Finally, the British left Siberia, leaving behind the new equipment and newly trained union workers.

According to Oleg’s account, “According to witness accounts, members of the party’s central committee, including Stalin, laughed hysterically every time Bukharin retold the story of how the workers’ state fooled Western capitalism. But the joke was really on the workers. As soon as the British left, the mines were taken over by the state, the wages dropped to the national average, and the usual miser ensued.”

In 1917 Bukharin said, “We asked for freedom of the press, thought and civil liberties in the past because we [the Communists] were in the opposition and needed these liberties to conquer. Now that we have conquered, there is no longer any need for such civil liberties.”

This “pitchfork formula” is being used in New York and across American to extract concessions from the “capitalist exploiters” (a.k.a. Wall Street and banks). We know what finally happened to the Soviet Union. By the way, Bukharin fell into disfavor, was declared an enemy of the people and executed by Stalin. So much for the creator of the pitchfork formula.
