Skip to comments.Anonymous threatens to take down State of the Union livestream (teleprompter hacked?)
Posted on 02/12/2013 3:44:44 PM PST by Libloather
According to a threat posted on Anonymous information website Anon Relations.net, the loosely banded hacker collective will attempt to disrupt the State of the Union address Tuesday by preventing it from being broadcast online.
The AnonRelations.net post cites a litany of offenses as motive for the threatened attack, from "tyrannical" legislation to the treatment of Internet heroes like Aaron Swartz and Bradley Manning. It goes on to state that hackers will "form a virtual blockade between Capitol Hill and the Internet," although onlookers may be skeptical of the group's ability to do this. A recent campaign against Israel during the Gaza conflict did not manage to take down any primary government sites, though several sub-sites and state-related companies were defaced or brought down.

Could get dicey here tonight, we’ll see.
You’ll impress me when you turn off the lights at the capital building.
They should hack TOTUS and do the speech in phonetic Klingon.
obozo is so stupid he will say whatever TOTUS prints..
If the teleprompter gets neutralized, does that mean that Joe Biden is President now?
Worst thing that could happen!!!!
0bama gets his “crisis” to use the Executive Order for CyberSecurity!!!!
Anonymous is in cahoots...not opposed too squat!
Sounds to me like the left is trying to drum up some interest and boost the number of viewers.
I would like to see them do this... It would have stood a better chance of success if they had just done it and not talked about before hand.
They are not doing it!!!
C’mon FR you are all better than this!!!!
0bama needs his cyber security crisis for the Executive Order slated to be released this week!
This is being pulled off by the regime!
Be my guest. Planned on missing this crapfest anyhow.
Right after the cybersecurity mention...
upload the TelePrompTer with a Reagan speech
This is apparently the same Anonymous that was all over the highschool football rape scandal in Ohio? According to the article they are upset over the treatment of Bradley Manning too> sometimes you can’t predict the politics of people on the basis of a single act......
They’ll just post YouTube videos, hack some stupid unsecured website, and wear Epic Fail Guy masks (copyright Time Warner).
With you on all of that.
I would much rather watch paint dry than listen to this tonight!
For once I’m hoping Anonymous succeeds.
Article II, Sector 3 of the US Constitution, says the President shall from time to time give to Congress information of the State of the Union and recommend to their Consideration such measures as he shall judge necessary and expedient.
At 9PM Eastern Standard Time, February 13, 2013 President Obama has planned to address a joint session of Congress to deliver the State of the Union Address.
The following day, President Obama will be introducing an executive order, purportedly aimed at bolstering U.S. cyber-security, after repeated failed attempts to pass legislation through Congress.
Anonymous has reached a verdict of NO CONFIDENCE in this executive order and the plans to reintroduce the CISPA bill to Congress on the same day. As such, President Obama and the State of the Union Address will be BANISHED from the Internet for the duration of live delivery.
So as not to infringe upon the Presidents free speech, subsequent broadcasts will be allowed to pass unhindered.
This action is being taken to underline a fact that appears to be sorely unrecognized by the Obama Administration that the Internet is a sovereign territory, and does not fall under the jurisdiction of any nation state.
We are the natives of this space, and its guardians, and we will fight until death to protect it as a neutral grounds for the unhindered interaction of all members of the human race, so long as they themselves act in harmony with this inviolable principle.
Our determination is that President Obama is acting in direct contravention of this principle, and his brief exclusion is an educational, rather than a punitive measure.
We hope that its lesson will be learned.
Punitive measures have not been ruled out.
Levin said it best yesterday. Have the Teleprompter announce Obama’s resignation.
“I resign... what! Who put that on the teleprompter?”
I’m going to take a nap, my dumb dog keeps me up at night. No idea what’s wrong with the little knot head.
My fellow Americans, these are trying times. There will be more choom for everyone.
He/She will impress me when they can shut off Obama's teleprompters.
“0bama needs his cyber security crisis for the Executive Order slated to be released this week!”
Cyber security laws will do nothing to stop hackers. These people are already breaking the law... If anything it demonstrates how useless such laws are.
Like anybody would care if he was knocked off the air....
A hacked telepromptor would be humorous, but I certainly wouldn’t announce my intentions if I were going to do that!
Uhm, uhm, erh, hmph, uhm....
they can’t hack what is not on any network.
“If the teleprompter gets neutralized, does that mean that Joe Biden is President now?”
i would personally love to see the TOTUS fail to work properly. obama is so good on his feet, we’d probably not even notice..... /s
i wouldn’t want to be the ss waffen agent in charge of protecting the TOTUS tonight....
Go Anonymous Go!
Best would be to just make some subtle changes that completely inverse the intent of the speech. Pretty good chance Obama wouldn't even realize it, and his horrified handlers would be frantically debating whether or not to interrupt him before he says too much. :)
“He’ll say anything you put on that teleprompter....and when I say ‘anything’....I mean...annn-eee-eee-thing.”
“Go F Yourself, America.”
Yes he will
We could get an Anchorman moment, “Go f*** yourself, America.”
One can dream! Eight Deuce on the Loose!!!!
hack POTUS teleprompter and put in: “I officially resign effective immediately, I now realize my administration is corrupt and is acting outside the Constitutional limitations placed on the office of President of the United States of America and my administration by the American people and I have abused that authority and have committed crimes that in fact do rise to the level high crimes and misdemeanors” Eight Deuce on the Loose!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Impress the hell out of me you so called hackers!!!!
I would be happy with just a couple of flies landing on his face.
I would be happy with just a couple of flies landing on his face.
As tempting as this might be to see, I am still not going to watch
You know that...I know that...and 0bama knows that.
The cyber security “laws” have nothing to do with security...
