Skip to comments.The Tyranny of Barack Obama's Department of Justice: Targeting Jews, Aaron Swartz, 26-year-old
Posted on 01/13/2013 1:06:32 PM PST by Nachum
Aaron Swartz, 26-year-old genius, computer prodigy, co-creator of RSS and Reddit, is dead.
Swartz committed suicide in the wake of relentless bullying and persecution/prosecution by Eric Holder's Department of Justice. Swartz was "driven to the edge" by the government's aggressive prosecution of a non-existent legal case. Swartz made public documents available to everyone -- this was his crime. Its like trying to put someone in jail for allegedly checking too many books out of the library.
Put this in context. Obama's DoJ, headed by Eric Holder, refused to prosecute thr Black Panthers who violently threatened voters with billy clubs and night sticks at polling places on election day. The case was dropped, despite the fact that the case "was already won." This was so gross a violation of voters' rights and the proper function of the Department of Justice that one of its best and brightest senior lawyers resigned in protest: J. Christian Adams.
Obama's Department of Justice policy is that "no voter intimidation cases will brought against a black defendant where the victim is white."
Obama's pro-jihad Department of Justice refused to prosecute Muslim Brotherhood groups, including Hamas-CAIR, ISNA, MSA, MSU, et al, despite the "mountain of evidence" entered into evidence in the largest terrorist funding trial in our nation's history. Documents linked these groups to the funding of terror and murder of non-Muslims, and conspiring toward "eliminating and destroying Western civilization from within."
Obama's pro-sharia Department of Justice department is pursuing cases against cities and towns to enforce sharia in the schools, prisons, and workplace. Obama's Department of Sharia filed an unusual lawsuit against the school system in December 2010, not to ensure that the kids get a good education, mind you, but more importantly, to ensure that the Muslims get special rights and extraordinary accommodation.

Going after Jews, Christians, Guns, straights, self employed, Conservatives...and and and
The list, Ping
Let me know if you would like to be on or off the ping list
I’m not sure suicide by a nerdy gay guy who complained of chronic illness and depression for years is too big a surprise.
Thank you for posting. A loss for anyone who values internet freedom and a warning to us all.
Here is a Whitehouse.gov petition, not that it will do any good.
He was guaranteed jail time...no access to computers or the internet, and no one in the gov’t was going to come to his rescue. What’s the alternate plan? His entire depended on access to the internet on a daily basis.
Highly likely. The article says he was involved in "progressive" causes and his friends included a MSNBC show host and a former aide to Congressman Alan Grayson.
Who ‘suicided’ him ?
He may not have been to most people's taste here on FR, but the Feds were after him and he was facing decades in prison for "copyright violation" which consisted of downloading obscure content from inaccessible academic journals that nobody would pay for anyway and whose writers probably would have been glad of a bigger audience.
JSTOR is a horrible monopoly that has completely locked up academic journals and indeed many other sources. JSTOR is NOT free, and I don't know where the idiot writer got this impression. They charge something like $25 for an article from an otherwise unread academic journal. The money doesn't go to the authors, but to whoever runs JSTOR.
It's "free" if you're a student in an academic institution whose library has paid a fortune to subscribe to the service, but you're certainly paying in other ways.
I'd like to know who owns JSTOR. Al Gore, perhaps? It's obviously some group who is a friend of Bambi.
Have to add him to the ‘Obama Dead Pool’ file now
Shame. I feel sorry for him. We live in terrible times.
God rest his soul.
Obama and Holder are anti-Semitic.
I agree with your sentiment Navy Patriot, but want to point out, so that more begin to understand, that today no one can claim how, or even that, 78% of any group voted, let alone how they voted. Our voting systems are entirely unverifiable. Both parties have at least permitted this destruction of our guarantee of representation by the people, and probably, destroyed our voting system's integrity so they could control the vote, as they most certainly do today.
How do I know? I designed secure systems for a living not long ago. As soon as one loses track, and by track I mean classical insurance of data integrity, at least checksums, and polynomials generated and sent with each packet of data to confirm that no bits have changed. With paper ballots the choices are best counted by humans. Casinos know every hand held by every client gambling. They save the data. We need to treat voting with as much care as casino owners treat the hands bet by their customers. Where computers, either scanners or touch screens are the data source, there is no audit trail, as engineering students have enjoyed showing for many decades, that they can introduce "hacks" or defeat the "security" of computers sytesm. Having ballots counted after they have been removed from the scrutiny of volunteer poll workers, after the polls have closed, and counted by SEIU employees, either by hand, or using machines maintained by the SEIU, working for state's attorneys general, the chain of integrity, the “audit trail”, is broken. Counts are irrelevant. As Stalin explained long ago, it is who counts the votes that matters. Our counting is performed by decidedly interested parties. SEIU employees have a clear fiduciary interest in the outcome of elections. How foolish is it to assume they will not follow the orders of their leaders? Any of them who would speak up would be putting his or her family at risk, not to mention losing employment and any pensions to follow.
The voting process today should simply be interpreted as a propaganda opportunity. Don't you think the left would like to divide the Jews who support Israel financially from those who support Democrat causes? Look who donated twenty million to Harvard just as Barack was admitted to Harvard Law, Alwaleed bin-Talal, who was, according to Percy Sutton, who proudly described his role in helping the Saudi’s most active US legal counsel, former black panther founder, former law partner of bin-Talal, Khalid al-Mansour/Don Warden, get Obama into Harvard Law. Khalid al-Mansour/Warden, has been dedicated to the Saudi Family and recruiting for Wahhabi Islam for forty years, almost since he graduated from UC's Boalt Hall in the early 70s, and opened a law office, "Bin-Talal, Al-Mansour". Mansour's funding of education programs for minorities, as reported by Vernon Jarrett, Valeries' Communist father-in-law, was in a 1979 Chicago Tribune article (follow Jack Cashill's article to Frank Mieli's discovery of the Trib article). Jarrett was a colleague and close friend of Frank Marshall Davis when they were both columnists in Chicago, and still after Davis's FBI scrutiny caused him to move to Hawaii in the late 50s.
Percy Sutton's interview has been on Youtube for almost five years, but the major media won't touch it since bin-Talal owns a major part of the media, largest private stockholder of News Corp, which owns Fox News and the WSJ. Not only did Harvard get a twenty million dollar donation in the mid-80s, before Obama's admission, in 1995, bin-Talal effectively bought the Harvard Divinity School, financing what is now their largest division, The Alwaleed bin-Talal Center for Islamic Study. Look it up. Bin-Talal, representing the Saudi Royal Family, as well as the parents Huma Abedin, Hillary Clinton's closest aide, has financed similar centers at Georgetown, American Universtiy, and three or four British universities. Follow the money. We don't need to know Barack's chosen religion. But we should know that his development, since at least Occidental, when al-Mansour mentions having met him, that his financial patron was the Saudi Royal Family. There is circumstantial evidence, Mansour's discussion of Barack's decision to become a US black (he had nothing to do with black history in the US, having been born a British subject to a British father) while he was still in Hawaii, before Barack's book was published, suggests that Mansour, close to Malcolm X, whose attorney was Percy Sutton, all of whom knew Vernon Jordan, one of whose closest friends was Frank Marshall Davis, that all these major players in Black Nationalism, Wahhabi Islam, US Communism, saw an opportunity with little Barry.
With control of the voting process, the media controls what are presented as polls, and interprets the garbage reported as vote counts. Our pundits are bright people, but mostly people uncomfortable with quantitative information. Voting mechanisms are a mystery to most people. Those of us who work with secure systems know that voting systems are a mess, and that the FDA would immediately reject data presented without a possible audit trail. But who reads engineering papers and thesis on the frailty of voting systems? Time to wake up. Today our voting system is a myth. There are some votes with a measure of integrity because the systems are not controlled by the federal agencies, such as ballot initiatives in California, where black voters decided that marriage was between a man and a woman, or because a candidate could not plausibly have won. Remember Obama’s job before he joined the Illinois legislature. He was a trainer for Project Vote, an Acorn subsidiary, funded with Soros money. The end justifies the means. You have no idea how Jews voted.
The liberal Israeli newspaper Haaretz reported that Romney had received 89% of the votes of American voters living in Israel. Israel is a more secular nation the the US - fewer Jews attend Synagogue as a percentage than in the US. Those who keep their US citizenship tend to be very much on the liberal side. We have no way of testing because we have no auditable votings system as the Israelis do - they use paper ballots and count them in public. But the claim about Jews voting for Obama sounds like propaganda, and probably is. This is just why Soros Holder and Obama control our voting systems. Everything they say or do must be interpreted in terms of their objectives.
ping for later...
Theft is theft. I like the government to prosecute thieves.
The correct name of Holder’s department is the Django-Justice Departmant.
However, your excellent comment should be rewritten to generalize slightly, and posted on voting, election and vote fraud threads. It is applicable to all those discussions, and not just Jewish voting indicators.
The USA is not the only country on an Earth connected via internet. Other nations and cultures may have had much more respect for such a creative talent. Prayers for the soul of Aaron Swartz.
For those not associated with a college or university I'm sure your comments are largely correct--except that not ALL of the material is obscure or of no interest.
He was being bullied by gangsta thugs.
He was being bullied by gangsta thugs.
I will never forget the justice department's crucifiction of Scooter Libby for exposing Valerie Plame, charges brought after Colin Powell's deputy Richard Armitage confessed to having informed the press of Plame’s CIA involvement. Did Powell, who certainly knew, say anything? Powell is a Holder ally, Obama supporter, and now, Chuck Hagel advocate. Sadly, this dirty business occurred during the G.W. Bush administration, and George refused to grant a complete dismissal of charges, even after all knew Libby was innocent. (There may be some legal limitation, such as the president's limitations that I'm missing - a president may not be able to dismiss charges, but I'll plead ignorance; George should have defended Libby). They got Libby by comparing trivia, about whom no one was certain - where, when, how many times - from Libby and a TV commentator, and nice man but an alcoholic, many of whose memories were a blur, and deciding that Libby had lied.
Our pundits know better, but know the potential for a corrupt government to ruin their lives. Holder would have put Swartz in jail, and possibly, as with Jonathan Pollard, lost the key. We have had spies who released critical defense information, and were caught, released during the time Pollard still sits in prison for passing threat assessments affecting Israel that our military had chosen to keep from our strongest ally in the Middle East. Swartz didn't have the constitution of G. Gordon Liddy, and petty henchmen in Justice knew he was vulnerable. His information was no more threatening than the silly movie Hillary used to excuse withdrawing security for our Ambassador in Libya.
I did chose to respond in particular to your comment about Jewish voters because the fraud of our non-existent verifiable voting system affects every issue. Until more understand that the foundation of our republic has been compromised, it will not be fixed. There are threads dealing with vote fraud, but voting fraud colors every political discussion, and more so when so few grasp that it has been completely co-opted by the left. That is what Acorn is about. That is what Obama is about. That is why Obama’s cadre knew that debate performances were irrelevant. That is why the left knew it didn't need to worry when twenty thousand appeared for Romney rallies when two hundred, mostly union hires, for Obama rallies.
Second, FR is not DU. It's supposed to be a conservative website. Yet the posters here not only are expressing SYMPATHY for this creepy criminal anarchist, they are justifying his violation of the law by stating that the targets of his crimes were less than user friendly. The rule of law is the rule of law. You don't get to pick and choose which laws you want to obey and which you feel are "unfair" or "okay to violate". If you do, you suffer the consequences. Now the GF and others are traipsing around looking for a deep pocket federal agency to sue. If they get their way, and find criminal sympathizing trial lawyers to work the case, WE the taxpayers will end up making the plaintiffs WEALTHY beyond their wildest dreams. Congratulations. Another MIRACLE in the U.S.A. where criminal behavior nets out a windfall profit.
Looks to me like FR has been seriously compromised. Not one poster here has seen this anarchist for what he was. You're all dumping on the prosecution instead. Wake up. What in tarnation is wrong with you all?
