Homeland Security surveillance detected on Christian website
WND ^ | July 30, 2011 | Bob Unruh

Posted on 07/31/2011 9:29:40 AM PDT by tutstar

The U.S. Department of Homeland Security has begun watching a blog posted by a Christian who was forced to flee Brazil because of the conflict between that nation's pro-homosexual "hate crimes" agenda and his advocacy for traditional marriage.

Exactly why the U.S. government, which several times has linked Christians and conservatives with terrorism, is watching Julio Severo's unabashedly Christian Last Days Watchman blog isn't clear.

A WND request to the DHS for comment did not generate a response.

The website's records reveal the DHS visited the site yesterday. A different computer, also at the DHS, was on the site again today.

Darn! Some guys get all the attention.

All I got was a two-minute rub-down at the airport.

“Several prominent Christian leaders in America at the time warned that similar crackdowns could be coming in the U.S. because of the federal “hate crimes” bill signed by Obama shortly after he took office.”

We’re fast becoming Canada, SA, and the EU.

Napolitano is deranged dyke, acting out her anger towards Straight White America by using the police state apparatus they unwittingly gave her to intimidate them into silence so she can clear the way for her pedophile buddies in NAMBLA and other twisted, sick homosexual groups to do what they want.

The moron Baby Boomer generation handed over the keys to the vaults to the criminals themselves.

You could always reverse-DNS the IP address of each hit and then pay special attention to any that come from the likes of *.doj.gov or *.fbi.gov. But any government agent worth his salt would use a civilian connection for surveillance. Unless the intent is simply to intimidate.

There are also databases that will estimate the geographic location of an IP address. But their accuracy is approximate at best and highly variable. And they only show the point at which the traffic enters the public internet. For instance, I see Google knows what town I'm in. But some of the ads I see consistently have me one town over. However, if I tunnel into my company's Amsterdam office, then Google and everyone else thinks I'm in Europe, not Massachusetts.

Jesus, just because a couple of DHS employees hit the guy’s site while at work doesn’t mean they’re doing surveillance. Methinks WND is reaching a bit as usual.

Maybe somebody at Homeland Security is a Christian and reads the webpage on government time. His supervisor probably thought he was surfing porn sites.

Well, maybe so. But I forgot where I was supposed to be going, and I might have dropped them a $20.

Jews prior to World War II who felt the same way... what WAS the big deal? Most Germans they knew were kinda nice... right?

Conservatives are being targeted for political beliefs. That 'lone wolf' thing is bogus. When I was young there was an idiot who climbed into a Texas tower to shoot at students ... we didn't give up our civil liberties over it. Same with when Kennedy was shot - no one identified the killer as a communist (he was) and decided to spy on all leftists - forever.

This is a totalitarian tactic - and it's political - aimed at us.

We'd all be speaking German today if our 'protectors' were running around after lone wolf's during World War II rather than fighting the Nazis... Radical Muslims - and the countries that support them are the people after us. No one can stop a lone evil person... the power of the state to even make that attempt is crazy.

Compare the number of gang related deaths to the number of 'Christian caused' related deaths in this country - just in case there's anyone out there who thinks this issue has to do with the number of citizen's deaths... Then get real.

Wow, reading your post made me wonder if all these invasive searches by TSA are a subconscious way of getting back at the evil world that molested her at some time in her life. That’s ‘if’ she was ever molested, who knows?

Essential Rules of Tranny Rule #5: Blame Everything On The Truth Seekers

http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/2756462/posts

“The propaganda machine thus goes into overdrive, and any person or group that dares to question the authority or the validity of the state is demonized in the minds of the masses.”

“There must always be an elusive boogie man under the bed of every citizen, otherwise, those citizens may turn their attention, and their anger, towards the real culprit behind their troubles. By scapegoating stewards of the truth, such governments are able to kill two birds with one stone. “

You have got that ON THE NAIL.

See post #19 on this thread, where the article “Rules of Tyranny”, talks about that exact point.

I completely agree with you.
We are about to be a full authoritarian state with our once valued liberties extinct.
It is very sad. I told a friend today that the very worst part of the aftermath of 9/11 is that the infrastructure to a surveillance society was laid down under the promise/pretext (take your pick) to protect us.
Then the nation put an Islamofascist behind the wheel!
May God have mercy on us.

Obama/Incompetano defend illegals and terrorists crossing the border---but are going after American citizens w/ a vengeance.

THE COCKEYED WORLD OF OBAMA/INCOMPETANO: A VERY DISTURBING GOVT MINDSET Obama/Incompetano pulled out all the stops to go after American "extremists" but seem "unable" to go after bombers and terrorists.

Keep in mind, Americans look at savage Mexican drug cartels, the undie bomber and Shazad with fear and trepidation, and demand justice. Ohaha/Incompetano, Holder, Emanuel, Axelrod, Soros and that bunch, look at terrorists w/ kindness and understanding, b/c terrorists are out to "get" those evil Americans.

OHAHA/DHS PROFILES AMERICANS--HATRED OF AMERICANS SPEWS FORTH No more proof is needed than Obama/Incompetano's profiling Americans as “rightwing extremists.”

On April 7, 2009, their hatred of Americans spewed full force as DHS' Office of Intelligence and Analysis sent out a nationwide alert to US L/E to act against "evil" conservatives. DHS identified “rightwing extremists” as a "danger" and defined “rightwing extremists” in a footnote, as follows.

OBAMA/INCOMPETANO ORDER L/E TO SUPPRESS AND DESTROY AMERICANS. EXCERPT DHS' Office of Intelligence and Analysis to L/E: "Rightwing extremism in the United States can be broadly divided into those groups, movements, and adherents that are primarily hate-oriented (based on hatred of particular religious, racial or ethnic groups), and those that are mainly antigovernment, rejecting federal authority in favor of state or local authority, or rejecting government authority entirely. It may include groups and individuals that are dedicated to a single issue, such as opposition to abortion or immigration."

DHS later said that the report was not an attempt to squash First Amendment Rights for conservatives----only "hate groups"---- but, there was NO attempt to exempt anyone from these broad generalizations. Obama/Incompetano's report paints EVERY ASPECT OF AMERICAN CONSERVATISM as "suspect."

This is indicative of a very disturbing government mindset. Obama/Incompetano's documented hatred of Americans, and their orders to L/E to surveil and supress Americans......contrasts sharply with their kid glove handling of drug lords, savages, and terrorists bent on violence and destruction.

All’s it takes is someone to hit a site with a IP that is assigned to the DHS. Government workers screwing off at work — naw not going to happen. You can see multiple government hits in FR in any one day. Even from the FBI. Does not mean it is “surveillance”. There use to be many White House hits on FR during W's admin.

Yeah, I’m with you; maybe there are a couple of Christians in DHS? Well, that might be a stretch. They probably thought they were logging on to a porn site.

I’ve always assumed that FR is being monitored at every moment by Hussein’s minions.
