  • Robotic rape porn part of Internet Giveaway [aw!m vanity]

    09/30/2016 8:42:32 AM PDT · by Arthur Wildfire! March · 27 replies
    Imagine robots similuting the victims of real life rapes and pedaphilia. Sound crazy? Drudge has been linking to 'sex robot' headlines regularly. Japan is perfecting them. [*a*] Those robots will soon be able to mimic anyone, such as a Christian twelve year old who is raped by ISIS as just one example. Any pervert could download interactive software for his personal bedroom robot to mimic every sound and mannerism. It's about to happen -- bank on it. The only question is this: "What say will the US have regarding such internet governence?" Here we are with ONE DAY remaining to...
  • A Balkanized Internet with a Free Speech Kosovo? [aw!m vanity]

    09/27/2016 6:44:29 AM PDT · by Arthur Wildfire! March · 5 replies
    People asked me to break up a very important article into segments: China's Conquest of Internet, ICANN + Quantum Encryption [*a*] It's not easy to do. For example: in the followup posting we began to discuss a 'balkanized internet' in which the leftist bigshots: google, amazon, twitter, etc abandon a single 'freedom of speech' TLD and the rest of the internet converges with heavy censorship rules. Then that tiny corner of the world wide web gets infiltrated and trashed like a cyber-version of Kosovo during Tito's regime. How can I quickly jump into such a contingency from scratch? If you...

    ICANN Senate Hearing
    It's hard to believe that even Obama would actually do this. But here is the professional witness testimony: "This reaffirmation was made through an exchange of letters. Not only are the letters non-legally binding, they actually acknowledge the possibility that at some point a separation of the IANA function from ICANN might threaten the stability and security of the US government’s top level domains. [Such as military websites and government websites.] I can’t speak for other observers, but for me, as a lawyer, an exchange of letters is a way of avoiding a contractually enforceable obligation. I know why ICANN...
  • ICANN is NOT a 'phone book', DAG-NABBIT! [aw!m vanity]

    FR research -- please share before Friday deadline.
    Too many people are confused. Let's cut through the lies and make this as simple as 'ABC'. Lie Number 1: "ICANN's just a 'phone book'." No, ICANN is the chained up guard dog in the back yard. [More on that later.] The closest thing to a phonebook is a Top Level Domain like .COM or .MIL. But calling them 'libraries' would be closer to the truth. So who is the TLD's librarian? That would be the 'Registrar' who manages the TLD's registry. ~ ~ Simple as ABC: A ... ICANN .. the chained up watchdog. B ... TLD ... Top...

    Please brace for just one thick sentence: ICANN's power is mainly legal, and a contract with ICANN could trigger a violent dispute over international law. ~ ~ ~ Bluntly stated: giving away ICANN could ultimately trigger a cyber war or worse. ~ ~ ~ Raw Power and International Law When you face a super power like the USA it helps to have raw power. China probably assumes it will not come to that, but just like nuclear deterence, they need the war-making capability. And the Chinese already enjoy raw power.

  • Easy To Explain -- WHY ICANN is dangerous [aw!m vanity]

    09/23/2016 2:48:26 AM PDT · by Arthur Wildfire! March · 21 replies
    This is the quick way to explain why ICANN is so dangerous. They essentially 'govern' the TLDs [top level domains]. Each TLD [such as .com or .org] runs its own 'phone directory'. And ICANN controls them through 'Registry Operator Code of Conduct'. Right now ICANN is subject to US law, mainly because its headquarters are in the US. But if ICANN's contract isn't renewed, it's free to move overseas [which it secretly plans to] and modify its 'Registry Operator Code of Conduct' for each dot-com or dot-org or ... ... theoretically even our military websites. From October on through to...

    09/22/2016 6:48:19 AM PDT · by Arthur Wildfire! March · 7 replies
    After September 30 ICANN could defer to international law rather than US law. What happens then? They alter their Registry Operator Code of Conduct and Obama says he has ‘no controlling legal authority’ since it’s based on treaties. So he is ‘forced’ to accomodate them with Justice Department assistance, federal compliance, etc. This could even affect military websites under Obama’s watch and [God forbid] Hillary’s watch. Foreign tyrants will be able to do the same thing.

    Congress has been assuring everyone, "Don't worry, we can defund the 'transition'." They already did defund the transition, and the defunding FAILED. Back in mid-August the Obama Administration proudly confessed to breaking federal law by announcing that ICANN's contract will indeed expire on September 30. The preparation to make that decision took what? Government resources. So now what does congress tell us? They'll defund the transition again. [more info / links coming up]

    Government resources were needed to fast-track the internet giveaway. And that was a criminal act by Obama's administration. Here are a couple lines of the wonky specifics: The federal government had prohibited any use of taxpayer funds be used to transition out of the current the IANA functions contract. In other words: Congress told the President, "You can't use one dime's worth of government resources to plan the 'internet giveaway. Do it and you're breaking federal law." But he did anyway. He used your tax money to make sure that the contract would expire on September 30. That was a...

    Washington Times ^ | Jenny Beth Martin
    Russia, China and Iran don’t have a First Amendment, and their governments regularly clamp down on free speech. So why would we want to end American protection of the open Internet and transfer it to Moscow, Beijing and Tehran instead? On Oct. 1, the Obama administration plans to end the U.S. Government contract with the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers, or ICANN. Doing so would kick off a transition that could irreparably harm the open Internet, leading to censorship abroad that could, quite realistically, lead to censorship right here in the United States. Under this transition of Internet...

    At this phase the Internet Giveaway is a lot like Bunker Hill. For whatever reason we had to 'see the the whites of their eyes' before it was guns blazing, and odds are that our 'generals', Paul Ryan and McConnell, have sold us out. But if we are forced into political retreat? They will PAY. If worse comes to worst the USSR did not need much internet access to topple their regime. Nor do we. I doubt it will get that bad either. But one way or the other we will march over their political carnage. And if it DOES...

    source: Paul Rosenzweig, a cyber-war insider | September 16, 2016 | aw!m
    Wednesdays's senate hearing regarding the Internet Giveaway revealed that ICANN has been not merely dishonest but truth is alien to them. Senator Grassley found no solid reason to believe that our .gov and .mil websites will be left alone. [Which means no website is safe]. That lack of assurance concerns him. According to Paul Rosenzweig [a cyber-war insider and former Homeland Administrator who wrote extensively about freedom-of-speech concerns] the only thing protecting the .mil and .gov websites is empty assurances in letters that have no legal value whatsoever. To put it bluntly: The senator and Rosenzweig both smell a rat....

    Will Defunding the Internet Giveaway Backfire? [aw!m vanity] President Obama is allowing a key contract to expire on September 30 -- the IANA functions contract with ICANN. Republicans such as John Thune assure us that congress will defund the transition. I'm no legal scholar, but how in the world is defunding going to prevent that contract from expiring? As I understand it the contract requires the federal government to fund certain internet functions. If we have a government shutdown, those functions aren't funded. So it would be a double whammy -- Executive Branch fails to renew contract while congress refuses...

It was one of Hannity's all-time best radio programs. And it might be his most important one since the early days after 9-11-01. The most informative moment on his radio show was his run-in with Jamie Dupree about the specifics of delegates. It gave me a creepy feeling. Hannity mentioned how delegates are selected. Every state has its own system, and I'm left with the impression that not many delegates feel...
  • Political Correctness has Neutered Patriotism [vanity]

    03/13/2016 6:04:42 AM PDT · by Arthur Wildfire! March · 48 replies
    Seeing the Chicago Rally with a fresh perspective: On 9-11-01 most of the passengers in the commercial jets cooperated with terrorists. Why? Political correctness dictated that they do so. Who turned out to be right? The passengers of United 93 -- this century's first stark example of patriotic courage. At the Chicago rally most of the Trump supporters avoided confrontations. Who turned out to be right? In that case there was NO WAY that any patriotic civilian could do the right thing. The law plays favorites against patriotism, especially in thuggish hellholes like Chicago. So sure, a man could keep...
  • Seven Questions regarding a Convention Fight [vanity]

    03/12/2016 2:18:05 AM PST · by Arthur Wildfire! March · 40 replies
    Are GOP delegates patriots above all else? Would the delegates' own opinions be respected enough for unity? If everyone falls short of the 'magic' 1236 [or whatever it is], is it possible that Cruz can actually prevent a brokered convention? Will most Trump supporters understand if Trump is defeated via a convention fight? How much time does Trump have to enter ballots as an independent if a convention fight is a certainty? Under such circumstances, should he consider doing so? How much leverage will the Establishment have on Trump if he's forced to make a deal with them at the...
  • Replacing Robert Hurt in VA 5th District -- Tom Garret? [vanity]

    While the presidential primary is over in Virginia, we still have other primaries. Here in the 5th District, I know of three republican candidates: Tom Garrett - State senator Jim McKelvey - Entrepreneur Michael Del Rosso [Today, discussing Tom Garret.] Is Tom Garret for real? Here is his issues page ... Issue Positions 2nd Amendment Tom is a strong advocate for our 2nd Amendment rights. Tom doesn’t need to talk about what he will do; he can talk about what he has done. The 2nd Amendment says “the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be...
  • The Real Trump University is a Kindergarten for Patriots [vanity]

    03/03/2016 12:17:07 AM PST · by Arthur Wildfire! March · 47 replies
    If Trump's group of excited political newbies had been a university, it would have been ridiculed as a kindergarten because he connects with the most neglected low-information voter of our nation ... the low info patriot. These clueless patriots were shocked to recently learn how anti-patriotic their former political icons were. Awakened from the Ruling Class Matrix, they are dazed and bewildered. They had just now learned how much their ruling class leaders hated patriotic ideas. "What's wrong with a muslim ban?" "Why put up with sanctuary cities?" "Why not waterboard terrorists?" "Build the freaking wall!" But just as we...
  • Glenn Beck, Brownshirts, and Reality [vanity]

    03/01/2016 4:02:14 AM PST · by Arthur Wildfire! March · 43 replies
    Multiple FRiends are beginning to agree with Glenn Beck that the brownshirts are coming. First off they are essentially here already. One group is the New Black Panthers. But yes, there is a danger of anti-muslim brownshirts coming. Just not the way Glenn Beck thinks. Part of the brownshirt psychology was a persecuted scapegoat -- the Jew. That's what made the nazis more vicious than the Italian facists. This is how I perceive the early nazi movement: Militaristic uniforms, marching in storm trooper squadrons, picking fights, inciting riots, and forcing people to say 'Heil Hitler!' That was BEFORE Hitler came...
  • Hillary, Beck, and the Pope Warned U About Trump [vanity]

    Well folks, now that it's already too late to get the word out, I am taking this time to gloat. I am evil, and Trump is evil. You might as well get ready to face it -- your silly republic is doomed. Glenn Beck warned you that Trump supporters are all brown shirts. Hillary Clinton warned you that we are part of a vast right wing conspiracy. The Pope warned you how evil we are as well. It is actually worse than they know. Phyllis Schlafly is our high priestess. Our wise and terrifying matriarch. Will Robertson [Duck Dynasty CEO]...
  • Trump and his Evil Polish Immigrants [vanity]

    02/27/2016 8:00:34 AM PST · by Arthur Wildfire! March · 63 replies
    Trump hired Polish illegal immigrants thirty years ago and that is unforgiva-bubble. He should have had the foreshight 30 years ago to predict that some illegals might be terrorists, and cried, "Citizen's Arrest!" /sarc How evil were these Polish illegals? Did they flee from the Soviet Bloc? Shouldn't they have been allowed to defect to the USA legally in the first place? I mean, maybe he could have called David Booth to have pyschic dreams and predict that we need better immigration policy. So with that lack of vigilance I can very much understand his critics. /double sarc

  • Empowering States to Revolutionize AND Modernize Education [vanity]

    01/09/2016 5:03:09 AM PST · by Arthur Wildfire! March · 28 replies
    The overall concept is simple -- true freedom for the states to revolutionize AND modernize education, but the technical change is very simple: hobble the federal government with minimal, super-majority oversight in enumerated ways [mainly or perhaps only to prevent islamo-terror recruitment and allay fears of racism]. This would require a constitutional amendment unless one resorts to the widened Commerce Clause and fight it out with the teachers' union in the courts. Either way, when people get excited enough? It's achieved. And how excited parents will be! Just imagine if parents could be in control of their childrens' school environment?...
