This week, James Wesley Rawles, the "father of the Survivalist movement", released the following statement on his website.
"It has come to my attention that from August of 2011 to November of 2011, the FBI secretly redirected the web traffic of more than 10% of SurvivalBlog’s US visitors through CJIS, their sprawling data center situated on 900 acres, 10 miles from Clarksburg, West Virginia. There, the Feebees surreptitiously collected the IP addresses of my site visitors. In all, 4,906 of 35,494 selected connections ended up going to or through the FBI servers....Furthermore, we discovered that the FBI attached a long-lived cookiethat allowed them to track the sites that readers subsequently visited. I suspect that the FBI has done the same to hundreds of other web sites."Alternative news sites are all carrying the story, and some preppers and patriots are diving for cover, vowing not to visit these sites again. The disconcerting fact is that the internet has been used as a tool by the nominal government to follow us, to identify us, and to catalogue us according to what type of threat we offer.
~ James Wesley Rawles, SurvivalBlog
Did you ever stop to think, that is the ONLY reason we still have an accessible internet?
Consider the fact that the "Arab Spring" revolution last year was coordinated almost solely through social media: Facebook, Twitter, blogs and web forums. If we know this, you can bet that so do the alphabet soup agencies. When revolution begins to be coordinated in America, our ability to communicate over the internet will cease.
When the time comes that the DHS Thought Police feel that they have accumulated enough information about us, the 'net will be locked down. When Revolution occurs, the 'net will be locked down. The internet is our Paul Revere - our early warning system and the fastest way to spread the word of threats. As certain sites become more and more proactive, those sites will be shut down.
We only have the internet as long as the
Personally, I intend to use the internet to give the government spies the finger.
- I will do everything I can to thwart their efforts to track me, including changing operating systems and installing bigger and better firewalls.
- I will continue writing to do my part to spread the word about the takeover from within of the United States government.
- I will continue to visit the alternative news sites on a daily basis to show them my support.
- I will not curtail my activities on the internet one bit.
- I will continue to dissent and to encourage others to do so.
Go ahead: follow me around the web. If there's a list (and we all know there is) then I'm already on it. Changing my habits now will do nothing to remove me from this list.
So, to all you dissident rebel Patriots, use the internet now to gather all of the information that you can. Make connections with other like-minded folks. Organize, spread the word and resist, while always keeping in mind that both sides can play at the "dis-information" game. When the threat of an internet-based Patriot movement outweighs the allure of being able to spy on us, the internet will be no more until we can take it back.
To quote a very wise man on a web forum: "What we need to do is just make sure they get the proper message: There are TENS OF MILLIONS of us, we are armed, and we are PISSED!"
Freedom should not be a radical concept in America. Fighting for freedom should not be considered a treasonous act. Voicing opinions of dissent should be welcomed in a country founded on liberty and free speech. The true revolution begins in your own mind.
The Revolution was effected before the War commenced. The Revolution was in the minds and hearts of the people; a change in their religious sentiments of their duties and obligations ... This radical change in the principles, opinions, sentiments, and affections of the people, was the real American Revolution.
John Adams, Feb. 13, 1818
Thank you to Okie for the quote of the day!
As for revolution, one must realize that the American Revolution only had about 10% of the people involved on the "rebels" side. The other 90% were either Tories or didn't care one way or the other.ReplyDelete
As for the spying I have said for years that one should not put anything on the internet (e-mail, blogs, Facebook, etc.) that they wouldn't say to a stranger on the street.
Ham radio: Everyone serious about knowing what is going on in the world around them during the neo nazi lockdown, had better have and know how to run some mobile but long range ham equipment. I have been pushing how to do these things for years. Still do when and where I can.ReplyDelete
Will be pretty comforting to know what is happening where when I am hunkered down waiting for the axe to fall.
That is definitely on my list of preps, Rowdy. When the time comes I'm going to pick your brain before I make a purchase - I didn't realize you had that skill!!!Delete
Kevin says- Hi daisy. I agree 99.99% with your post. Where I disagree is that I think There are over a 100 million people "pissed" at the government. proof=40% hate the irs,9% approval of us house of representing(I could go on,and on,and on but just 2 quick examples will do). I am begining to think that that cookie with fbi in its name is a DECOY. Who in their right mind would write a cookie with fbi in its name(like a 100 foot billboard) unless it was MEANT TO BE FOUND(scare tactic perhaps)! Even the government is not THAT dumb, and they have many very smart people(I call wizards) working for them. I know some, and have worked around some who have worked out at the test site, very smart. That being said, IF any tracking is going on, it is either a hidden in a cookie(from a site you would accept cookies from, your bank perhaps), or written into the brousers programs. I am leaning toward the latter.ReplyDelete
The service provider you use has the capability of tracking your movements (the providers are in bed with the Feds). The service provider assigns your machine an IP address when you log in and they have the ability to figure the IP address given to user name linkage. After all, you pay them money and have given your personal info to them (this doesn't apply if you're using a third parties network for Internet access (e.g. public hotspot, although your wireless/ethernet cards MAC address is unique and leaves you vulnerable to tracking, albeit to a lesser degree).ReplyDelete
If you're really serious about anonymity, strictly use public hotspots for potential controversial posts and check out a public association/technology that goes by the acronym TOR
Use TOR as it obfuscates where you've entered the Internet (and theat entry point is where the gov lies in wait to gather infor used to track you.
Oh, and continuously, clear your browser of cookies and your flash too (dig around the flash utility that's on your computer somewhere and set it not to store flash cookies.
Best of all would be to use a virtual machine (i.e. make a clean install of an operating system inside on a host computer with something such as VMware). Take a snapshot of the fresh install, and revert back to it after each Internet session (that way any hidden cookies get cleaned because you are reverting to the fresh virgin install).
Virtual machine,TOR and using a variety of public hotspots together would really make it difficult from the feds to track you.
I discovered your blog site on google and check a few of your early posts. Continue to keep up the very good operate. I just additional up your RSS feed to my MSN News Reader. Seeking forward to reading more from you later on!…ReplyDelete
