(Infowars) – In another show of incredible determination, we have managed to fight back censorship and tyranny with truth by getting “Google Spies” to the top searched term of July 19, 2010. This is one of several victories that have been accomplished thanks to our amazing listeners and readers. This is a direct assault on the cover-up being pulled on the American people by the cartel of elite corporations.
Mainstream news, popular blogs and talk shows regularly refer to Google trends for topics and for the past few days the leading stories have been The Obama Deception, Infowars, Fall of the Republic, Google Censorship and most recently Google Spies. This is a major blow to the establishment and with you help we can keep the truth on top of nonsensical topics like Lindsey Lohan’s legal troubles. Continue reading

(Infowars) – Thanks to our dedicated readers and listeners, within twenty minutes of Alex Jones’ Sunday show ending where the news broke of The Obama Deception being taken off YouTube, three of the top ten Google Trend search terms were held by Infowars, Fall of the Republic, and The Obama Deception Censored.

In this special video report for Prison Planet.tv members, Paul Joseph Watson explains why the real agenda behind cybersecurity is political oppression and the death of free speech on the Internet, and how the entire globe is now implementing Chinese style censorship policies to change the nature of the world wide web as we know it forever.

(PaulWatson) – The Transportation Security Administration will block all websites that contain “controversial opinion” from its federal computers in the latest example of how Internet censorship is expanding in both the private and public sector as the federal government prepares to push through a power grab that will empower President Obama to shut down the world wide web with an emergency decree.
“The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) is blocking certain websites from the federal agency’s computers, including halting access by staffers to any Internet pages that contain a “controversial opinion,” according to an internal email obtained by CBS News.”
The new rules came into force on July 1, and prevent TSA employees from accessing such content, though what is deemed “controversial opinion” is not explained. Undoubtedly, the ban list will include websites which specialize in criticism of the government and federal agencies. Continue reading

(DailyBeast) – Is cyberspace about to get censored?
Confronting threats ranging from Chinese superhackers to the release of secret documents on WikiLeaks and other whistleblowing websites, the Obama administration may be on the verge of assuming broad new powers to regulate the Internet on national-security grounds.
The powers are granted to the White House under a bipartisan bill that was introduced in the Senate only last week but is already moving quickly through Congress toward passage. The legislation has generated considerable buzz on tech blogs—but drawn little notice so far by major news organizations. Continue reading
(TimeMagazine) – The concept of government-backed web censorship is usually associated with nations where human rights and freedom of speech are routinely curtailed. But if Canberra’s plans for a mandatory Internet filter go ahead, Australia may soon become the first Western democracy to join the ranks of Iran, China and a handful of other nations where access to the Internet is restricted by the state.
Plans for a mandatory Internet filter have been a long-term subject of controversy since they were first announced by Stephen Conroy, the Minister for Broadband, Communications and the Digital Economy, in May 2008 as part of an $106 million “cybersafety plan.” The plan’s stated purpose is to protect children when they go online by preventing them from stumbling on illegal material like child pornography. To do this, Conroy’s Ministry has recommended blacking out about 10,000 websites deemed by the Australian Communications and Media Authority (ACMA) to be so offensive that they are categorized as ‘RC,’ or Refused Classification.

(LondonGuardian) – Report condemns swine flu experts’ ties to big pharma
Scientists who drew up the key World Health Organisation guidelines advising governments to stockpile drugs in the event of a flu pandemic had previously been paid by drug companies which stood to profit, according to a report out today.
An investigation by the British Medical Journal and the Bureau of Investigative Journalism, the not-for-profit reporting unit, shows that WHO guidance issued in 2004 was authored by three scientists who had previously received payment for other work from Roche, which makes Tamiflu, and GlaxoSmithKline (GSK), manufacturer of Relenza.

(NaturalNews) – FDA defeated in federal court over censorship of truthful health claims – Mike Adams
Health freedom has just been handed a significant victory by the United States District Court for the District of Columbia, which ruled last week that the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) violated the First Amendment rights of a nutritional supplement company when it censored truthful, scientifically-backed claims about how selenium can help reduce the risk of cancer.

(NaturalNews) – Big Pharma blackmails Greece; halts medicine supply over cash demands – Mike Adams
In the midst of runaway economic problem in Greece, the pharmaceutical industry has decided to blackmail the nation and halt shipments of medicines to Greece until it agrees to pay full price for the drugs. In order to cut costs during its severe debt crisis, Greece had announced it would pay drug companies 25 percent less for their products, but this loss of profit was enough to convince several pharmaceutical companies supplying key drugs to the country to initiate their own medical blockade where they simply refuse to deliver any more medicines.

(Reuters) – Cancer will kill 13.2 million a year by 2030: U.N.
Cancer will kill more than 13.2 million people a year by 2030, almost double the number who died from the disease in 2008, the United Nations’ cancer research agency said on Tuesday. Read More Here
(Examiner) – According to an explosive special report on Supreme Court nominee Elena Kagan’s views on the First Amendment right to free speech, in September of 2009 Kagan encouraged the Court to adhere to a new philosophy on the First Amendment that would allow the government to censor posters, pamphlets, and TV and radio content–and the Internet.
In a stunning news report issued today by CNS, the following information was disclosed: Continue reading

(BoingBoing) – The MPAA and RIAA have submitted their master plan for enforcing copyright to the new Office of Intellectual Property Enforcement. As the Electronic Frontier Foundation’s Richard Esguerra points out, it’s a startlingly distopian work of science fiction. The entertainment industry calls for:
- spyware on your computer that detects and deletes infringing materials;
- mandatory censorware on all Internet connections to interdict transfers of infringing material;
- border searches of personal media players, laptops and thumb-drives;
- international bullying to force other countries to implement the same policies;
- and free copyright enforcement provided by Fed cops and agencies (including the Department of Homeland Security!).

(911Blogger) – Cass Sunstein, a Harvard Law Professor and Confidant of Obama was appointed to be Obama’s head of the Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs.
He became infamous within this movement for writing a paper on how to best to combat “Government Conspiracy Theory Groups,” including by covert infiltration, as described by Glen Greenwald.
And now rumor has it that he’s on a short list to replace John Paul Stevens on the US Supreme Court.
That’s great – Eh? A real Constitutionalist there who will stand up for the Bill of Rights, including dissent and free speech.
He would be a shoe in for confirmation – what with his Neocon, Big Brother Street Cred with Republicans and Obama’s support. If Obama nominates this guy it will be one more in a long list of Obama sell-outs to the Security State.

(GlobalResearch) – After the Battle of Hastings in 1066, William the Conqueror’s army buried its fallen comrades, but left the corpses of the English defenders to rot in the fields where they lay.

(PaulWatson) – Hackers protesting government censorship of the Internet have shut down several Australian government websites in a demonstration against the announcement that filters would be imposed to block access to websites deemed offensive by the authorities. Continue reading
The Western world, from Australia to the United States, UK and parts of Europe, are moving in a unified front toward dictatorial Internet censorship. Australia has led the way, despite outcry from its populace, by “filtering” out certain banned content. In the United States, Sen. Jay Rockefeller, in continuing his family’s tradition of oppressing free humanity, has pushed forward Cybersecurity legislation that has already passed the House. He has done so in the name of warding off ghastly cyber “attackers” conceivably fronting for al Qaeda while ushering in a means to restrict free speech and expression online for the general population.

(PaulWatson) – With influential proponents recently calling for a newly regulated world wide web, we got a preview of how that might look this past weekend after both Infowars.com and Prison Planet.com were completely blocked to many Internet users in New Zealand. Continue reading
Has Chinese-style internet censorship arrived in New Zealand this year? The question is posed because two major news websites, Infowars.com and Prisonplanet.com, both of which are run by documentary maker and radio show host Alex Jones, who is renowned for exposing the truths the mainstream media attempts to conceal, were found to be have been selectively blocked on Friday evening and were still unavailable at the time of writing.

Will recent successes in fighting internet controls be enough to stave off tyranny?
The focus is back on Internet censorship this week as a pair of articles from Time Magazine and The New York Times came out almost simultaneously advocating for licences to operate web sites. These articles were skillfully skewered by Paul Joseph Watson as lame attempts to shore up a disintegrating establishment media in the face of a blogosphere that is increasingly replacing them.

(NaturalNews) – 2009 has been a crazy year for health and medicine. It was the year that Congress rammed through a mandatory health “reform” bill that violates the U.S. Constitution in forcing all Americans to buy government-mandated products and services from greedy corporations. Although it hasn’t been signed into law yet, the very fact that it has been passed by both the House and the Senate is alarming: America is just one signature away from becoming a medical dictatorship.

(KurtNimmo) – As China, Iran, and Australia initiate draconian efforts to shut down the internet as an alternative news source, the House of Lords in the United Kingdom is mulling a similar attempt to block dissenting voices. The so-called Digital Economy Bill, essentially ignored by the media, would allow the Secretary of State to “a technical obligation on internet service providers” at the whim of the government.

The FCC, in proposing to change the definition of an “open Internet” from competition-driven to government-driven is setting a very dangerous precedent; that it is acceptable for countries to preemptively regulate the Internet for what might happen in the future, even if they lack the legitimacy of constitutional or legal authority to do so, or even if there is thinnest of justification or evidence to support it.

“For work as an author, film-maker and journalist as well as for courage as a foreign and war correspondent in enabling the voices of the powerless to be heard. For commitment to peace with justice by exposing and holding governments to account for human rights abuses and for fearless challenges to censorship in any form.’ Continue reading
The United States Senate recently passed the Matthew Shepard Hate Crimes Prevention Act (HCPA/S.909), a “Hate Crimes Bill” that provides authorities with the power to increase prosecution and punishment for crimes which were already covered under current laws but which will now receive special attention. The new American law ostensibly only covers “hate violence,” but, if we look to Europe and Canada as examples of how it will truly be used, we can see that a seriously threatening can of worms has been opened.

At a time of corporate dominated media, a free and open Internet is democracy’s last chance to preserve our First Amendment rights without which all others are threatened. Activists call it Net Neutrality. Media scholar Robert McChesney says without it “the Internet would start to look like cable TV (with a) handful of massive companies (controlling) content” enough to have veto power over what’s allowed and what it costs. Progressive web sites and writers would be marginalized or suppressed, and content systematically filtered or banned. Continue reading
