World War 3.0

January 22, 2012 in General

The chairman of the U.S. Joint Chiefs of Staff, Army General Martin Dempsey, met with Israeli leaders on Friday 1/20/12 in an effort to dissuade the nation from attacking Iranian nuclear facilities. On Thursday, hacktivist group Anonymous shut down websites belonging Universal Music Group, the RIAA, U.S. Department of Justice, the Motion Picture Association of America, the Utah Chiefs of Police Association, and the US Copyright Office; in a powerful and seemingly effective protest of SOPA and PIPA legislation. Meanwhile, “Preppers” are preparing for the collapse of America as we know it; a veritable “uncivilization.”

Cyber-war is a part of WW3.0

Cyber-war is a part of WW3.0

The halcyon days of tra-la-la-ing down Main Street America are seemingly coming to an end. To look down at our iPhone 4S or iPad to check for texts from our besties while we walk may cause us to lose sight of the rolling, torrential avalanche of change; that loss of worldly freedom and security that we have grown soft and pacified in like an over-coddling mother’s bosom.

Internet-loving citizens of the free world have been drawn into a World War Web being waged by cyber-groups such as Anonymous, who operate in the nebulous electric shadow-world of 01010101. But, war is coming that will be waged on Terra Firma, in the skies, and on the seas that will involve Israel, America, Iran and likely Russia and China – and it will shake the foundations of the two income, two-car, Nathan going to college, Kristi going to grad school, Kaitlin getting married, vacation to Hawaii, let’s barbecue a side of beef Old America. As for today World War 3.0 is absent fireworks, but it is being waged on the internet and through covert operations, as the health of the Euro and the Dollar continues to deteriorate and both could fall into cardiac arrest at any time.

Since that terrible day in 2001, wise Americans have been braced for another catastrophic event; one worse than 9/11. Excluding natural disasters such as Hurricane Katrina, that catastrophe has yet to rear its ugly, vicious head. But, as World War 3.0 is for today waging quietly around us, shouldn’t we be “preppers” and be ready for the worst-case scenario? Indeed, the passionate campaigning of preparation for disaster is not just a gimmick for radio and television personalities like Glenn Beck to boost their ratings by attracting the patronage of “end of the world lunatics.”

Jesus is coming to take His true believers home to a glorious wedding feast. But, while He continues to tarry, believers and non-believers are well-advised to be ready for tumultuous times. War is waging and economic collapse is staging. We are no longer allowed the luxury to live as Missouri-ites in the “Show Me” state.

We would be wise to start believing without first seeing.

Bloodless War

January 20, 2012 in General

There are no bullets or blood. You will not hear the pop of artillery fire or the whoosh of missiles taking off from mobile launchers. The threat of nuclear weapons being implemented is minimal though not entirely negligible. Traditional armament-toting soldiers are not being deployed; however there is a bloodless war being waged in Cyber-Space…

Who is Anonymous?

Who is Anonymous?

The global cyber-collective carrying the moniker of Anonymous has claimed to have shut down six major websites; those belonging Universal Music Group, the RIAA, U.S. Department of Justice, the Motion Picture Association of America, the Utah Chiefs of Police Association, and the US Copyright Office. As of 6:50 PM ET on Thursday, January 19, only the MPAA site was functional, while others showed signs of tampering. This salvo was fired by Anonymous in retaliation for charges levied earlier Thursday against content-sharing site Megaupload.com.

Anonymous has been referred to as an “internet-based superconsciousness.” The hacktivist collective’s slogan is “We are Anonymous, We are legion, We never forgive, We never forget, Expect us.” This is a group that has demonstrated that they should not be taken lightly; that they should indeed be “expected.”

We have grown to rely on the internet for nearly all manner of sustenance in this worldly life. What is being demonstrated by a group such as Anonymous is that the venerable internet is vulnerable; it can be violated in a way that supersedes identity theft, phishing, and general harassment. Useful and popular websites that draw countless thousands if not millions of visitors can be taken down for long periods of time despite the best technological defenses put in place to prevent such attacks.

Defenders of SOPA and PIPA could use this most recent move by Anonymous as justification for full, undiluted enactment of those pending laws. In reality, there is nothing that these legislative works could do to prevent further acts of hacktivism. Cyber-Space has become a battleground; but does this war pit Us verses Them or Them versus the Other Them?

Don’t grow attached to the temporal things of this world, as they are fleeting. The world will not end in 2012, but as I have written before it will change – and likely in radical ways. As a technologically-dependent society and culture the very things we depend on have made us perilously soft in our addiction.

Imagine a world suddenly devoid of Facebook. My, oh my, perish the thought!

Free Internet

January 14, 2012 in General

SOPA (Stop Online Privacy Act) is a colossal, glittering jewel of flawed legislation that would greatly hamper our freedom of expression and communication on the internet. But, it could be that lawmakers are starting to hear the disjointed, cacophonous roaring of “we the people” over the rumble of the money machines run by the movie and recording industries and the clinking of the keys hung on the rings those industries’ metaphorical jail guards?

How long will the internet be free?

How long will the internet be free?

Ultimately, cyberspace itself will end up under the deceptive auspices of corporate kings and princes that seek consolidation and control in the burgeoning One World System that is soon to rule the people of planet Earth. SOPA may end up losing some teeth before biting into the meat of our internet freedom, but for how long will the internet remain free? And when this writer uses the adjective “free” it does not pertain to the fee the customer pays to his or her ISP.

The internet is an expressway to freedom. The World Wide Web allows fast and nearly effortless access to video, music, news, opinion, fact, fiction, truth, and lies. The free world can gain instant access to banking information and can shop from the privacy of its own personal space, without having to deal with live-in-the-flesh human beings in shopping malls and behind the wheels of motor vehicles.

With the freedom that the internet provides marvelous things can be done, like the spreading of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Contrarily, that very freedom allows for the satisfaction of sexual sin through pornography. And, if one is criminally-oriented, he or she can commit financial fraud and identity theft through phishing.

We can be whoever we want to be on the internet; as that very freedom allows us to blur the lines that separate fact from fiction. The internet allows us to hide behind user I.D. and passwords and enables us to write or say whatever good or evil thing we like, as there is a near zero chance that we will ever be caught up with and held accountable in the physical realm. Indeed, the internet gives us the freedom to be the ultimate best or most vial worst that we can be.

The internet provides a world-wide platform for us to speak out against injustice; whether that aforementioned injustice is legitimate or merely idealistic. In summary, the internet allows for information to flow as fast as greased lightening, and the The Powers That Be in this rapidly-developing One World System will not allow information and materials that are antithetical to their corporate machinations to flow unimpeded – if not blockaded – for long.

Yes, SOPA is just another of the efforts to curtail freedom in the names of “privacy” and “security” as the Fairness Doctrine attempted to bring “fairness” and “equal time” to radio and television.

After all is said and done, there is an attempt to eliminate the liberty of the many in an effort to consolidate the power to a few and from that few to merely one. This consolidation through elimination will happen despite the outcome of the 2012 election. When we come to grips with the fact that we can’t stave off the consolidation and loss of freedom, we can then prepare our hearts, minds, and souls for the fruition of the coming change; knowing that with faith in the Blessed Hope we won’t be here to see its full fruition.

The Man Behind the Curtain

December 30, 2011 in General

I’ve stated before that I am not a prognosticator, and I will maintain that claim. But, this writer will make the seemingly safe prediction that the year 2012 will be more tumultuous than 2011 on all fronts…

Obama good, no Romney good!

Obama good, no Romney good!...no Paul!

There is so much information available through the internet and mass-media that the ability to discern the truth from deception will be exceedingly difficult in 2012; even for watchers at the wall like me. I have with steadfastness believed that the television news media is controlled and events that could directly impact the quality of our lives – especially those events taking place in the Middle East – do not get sufficient reportage. The 2012 Presidential Campaign has been in full-swing for months and all other news seemingly gets the short shrift.

The SOPA (Stop Online Piracy Act) may curtail greatly the information that we receive online; if the government uses it to shutdown sites that may be “unfriendly” to the Marxist administration currently at the helm of Good Ship America. As a writer and a recording artist, I stand against internet piracy as it would make my products illegally free and deny me the opportunity to be paid for my creative work. But at the same time, I don’t trust the amount of freedom that SOPA would give to Big Brother and the fact that Hollywood is so supportive of it sends up a miniature red flag of paranoia in my mind. Much of the Internet Industry, including social media giants Facebook and Twitter as well AOL, LinkedIn, Ebay, and Mozilla are set against SOPA. Indeed, it is something to be carefully watched in 2012.

So while we are being distracted by Obama vs. Romney, Romney vs. Gingrich, Paul vs. Santorum, Obama will beat any Republican, any Republican will beat Obama ad infintum and ad nauseum, events will be transpiring in the Middle East that will threaten our way of life and likewise through the government that will diminish our freedom. But, the casual news observer will be made suitably uninformed by being lulled into a stupor by nearly non-stop Election 2012 coverage or by SOPA pseudo-censorship…

…That is unless an event so colossal takes place in the world that all self-respecting albeit controlled media outlets will be forced to push aside the perpetual coverage of the buildup to the election; if the election itself isn’t postponed!

The “control” is at the very least within the bias; with FOX being for the most part conservatively so while CNN, MSNBC, ABC, CBS, NBC, NPR and others bowing to the liberal agenda followed by their viewers, listeners, and button-pushers alike. At the very worst, the control is brought upon the news media by the wealthy elites that drive corporate America and operate the world banking system. It is these elites that believe they will hold complete power in a full-out economic and social collapse; implementing a one world system that is financial, governmental, judicial, militaristic, religious, and commercial.

The government is not here to help and “The Man” is a select group of men and women. In 2012, we may see much more evidence of these things as those who operate behind the scenes will be more bold about stepping out into view. But pay no attention to that man behind the curtain!
