Dept of Homeland Security's curiosity piqued over Pope Benedict XVI's retirement and Catholic Prophecy

By Brian Kopp

Back in 2011, two posts on the Summorum Pontificum blog garnered multiple visits from multiple office locations and ISPs of the Department of Homeland Security:

For fourth anniversary of Summorum Pontificum, Pope draws attention to little known prophecies of Venerable Elena Aiello

The apocalyptic prophecies of Hildegard of Bingen, the next Doctor of the Church

Today, two different computers at the DHS Washington DC offices stopped in once again at the Summorum Pontificum blog:

Notice the link that lead them here?
http://www.godlikeproductions.com/forum1/message2135435/pg1

 

Of course, we learned last year that DHS was monitoring social media:
Homeland Security watches Twitter, social media

 

Aren't we all glad to know that the DHS is actively monitoring the internet, watching out for terrorists foreign and domestic?

Could you, like, explain this in your own words? I can’t make heads nor tails of it.

There go the resurrected Nazis, looking for that darn spear, again!

History repeats itself!

America’s “defenders of the homeland” HAVE turned into the Gestapo!

Long Live The Republic!

It's written in bloggerese by someone who fancies himself a title in front of his name.

Not for mere mortals such as you or I to understand.

Individuals at the Department of Homeland Security seem to have a keen interest in Catholic prophecy. They’ve been regular visitors on my blog posts about Pope Benedict XVI and Catholic prophecy. Make of it what you will...

LOL, this is how Thorazine boosts sales. Probably some bored TSA agent reading conspiracy blogs or googling around.

A real DHS snooper wouldn’t use a computer identified on their network. They have spoofed or unnamed networks for those.

The ones you really should watch for are the ones that say ‘Google bots’. If you see those, you know they are about to come get you.

You do realize there are hundreds of thousands of DHS employees and they surf the internet at work; wasting time just like the rest of us?

Real ‘spies’ won’t use networks that identify they are spying on you.

I am happy about his change of the liturgy.

In the Fall of 2011 the Pope historically changed the Confession to the personal pronoun of I instead of the We. This fulfilled the specified and enhanced1John 4 requirement for all then it did before. See The beginning of my profile on 1John4 importance about the woman who could not declare it.

Photobucket

I believe in one God the Father almighty,

maker of heaven and earth of all things visible and invisible.

And in one Lord Jesus Christ, the Only-begotten Son of God,

born of the Father before all ages. God from God, Light from Light,

true God from true God,

begotten, not made, consubstantial with the Father; through Him all things were made.

For us and for our salvation

He came down from heaven.

(at the following words, up to and including “and became man”, all bow)

and by the Holy Spirit was incarnate of the Virgin Mary,< and became man.

For our sake He was crucified under Pontius Pilate, He suffered death and was buried, and rose again on the third day in accordance with the Scriptures.

He ascended into heaven and is seated at the right hand of the Father.

He will come again in glory to judge the living and the dead.

His kingdom will have no end.

And in the Holy Spirit, the Lord, the giver of life who proceeds from the Father and the Son,

who with the Father and the Son is adored and glorified, who has spoken through the prophets;

And in one, holy, catholic, and apostolic Church.

I confess one baptism for the forgiveness of sins. I look forward to the resurrection of the dead and the life of the world to come. Amen.

Gee, it couldn’t POSSIBLY be that these were a couple bored Catholics on break. You do know that Catholics work at DHS too (it is a massive organization)? You suffer from rather severe narcissism if you think the government is monitoring YOU. Apparently they didn’t teach you Occam’s razor where you got your doctorate.

There might be even a few *gasp* Roman Catholic DHS employees who are suddenly interested in things like "Peter the Roman" and are wasting taxpayer dollars trying to find information while on the clock.

Shocking, I know. But also a real possibility.

Hey, if there are good faithful Catholics at DHS wasting time reading Catholic blogs, that’s great news! Finally, my tax dollars being spent on something unlikely to bring down the republic...

They do this in the rubrics of every Traditional Latin Mass:

Again, get your mind out of the gutter. This is the Religion Forum and your line of attack is frowned upon.

Today’s leftists seem to be in lock (or should that be goose) step with their idol, Saul Alinsky who dedicated his book “Rules for Radicals” to Lucifer. The left has been quite efficient at eradicating Christians of all denominations while pretty much slobbering over islamists and communists.

There may also be 4Channers and such who spoof their personal networks to show the name DHS just to troll websites like this into thinking they are being spied upon.

You should at least ping me if you are talking about me.

Why would you think DHS isn't monitoring you? You are on a conservative website.

The DHS is monitoring the Internet based on certain keywords and phrases. And because it’s been published they are doing so, they hardly need to sneak in.

They are holding his vestments so they don’t touch the ground while giving communion. We have the same thing in the Anglican church and I think various Protestant denominations have a similar practice with vestments.

I have enough friends in federal law enforcement and the federal judiciary to know that this kind of visit is not random and is indeed originating from DHS. I ran the data by them in 2011 when the first swarm of multiple hits from multiple DHS ISPs first registered on my Stat Counter account, and they checked out.

Today’s visits could just be two random web surfers at DHS, but DHS is actively monitoring Christian conservative, pro-life, prophecy related blogs etc.

Even progressives have a conscience. I think the Obama admin and their lapdogs fear divine retribution.

They don’t monitor like this. What that shows is a physical visitor to the site. It is impossible for people to monitor every website. What they use is ‘bots’, little web programs that basically scan all websites in the same way Google scans sites. Bots show up specifically as a ‘webbot’ on these type of visitor logs (and most don’t give a name). What this shows is an actual computer visit (ie a person on a computer visiting versus just a program scanning).

If they didn’t do this, it would take the entire population of the US just to keep track of the billion or so facebook accounts alone if everyone watched multiple accounts, not to mention the billions upon billions of other websites.

You are seeing what you want to see. It is like a Rorschach test. One who sees buggery probably has buggery on the mind and is more a reflection of what is in the viewer than what is in the image.

Well then, I should be flattered. Maybe bot reports precipitate physical visitors upon further review?

I wish I had saved the screen shots from visits from the Maryland, WV, VA, and DC offices back in 2011. Sure seemed someone was bumping it up closer to HQ in DC each time they came back, till the multiple visits from the various DC ISPs at the time..

No, it’s a picture of an altar boy grasping the EDGE of the priest’s chasuble and LIFTING IT UP to keep it from binding on itself or the vestment underneath it (called an alb), so the priest can elevate the Host at the holiest moment of the Mass. YOU are trying to make it something else.

This is a depiction of an acolyte holding up the priest’s chasuble at the consecration. It is done at every Traditional Latin Mass. Please cease and desist from this scurrilous attack on an innocent depiction of the Holy sacrifice of the Mass.

Or maybe you happen to have had keywords on your site or in your article that was popular today. I googled Malachi Prophecy and on the first page were Free Republic and Godlike articles of the results. It is one of the top searched terms today. I saw your blog was connected to the latter so it seems more logical that you simply were hit by a random person based on someone searching for popular terms.

After all, be real, what is there on your site that warrants official monitoring that can’t be found on tens of thousands of other sites? I scanned your site, nothing special. I doubt traditional Latin Mass warrants anything beyond the random curious search, not official monitoring.

..and, IF it is something they think is worth official monitoring, think about this, that means they are so drowning in mundane information they would be incapable of doing anything about it (in data analysis field we call it data asphyxiation)

The inappropriate posts have been removed.

All of you, stop attributing motives to another Freeper and/or reading his mind. That is "making it personal."

Discuss the issues all you want, but do not make it personal.
