  1. Vic Livingston Says:

    APPARENTLY, FUSION CENTER CENSORS WILL NOT ALLOW ME TO ACCESS READ READ THE FULL PDF FILE FROM THE SENATE ARMED SERVICES COMMITTEE ON GUANTANAMO TORTURE TACTICS.

    • Apparent malicious "surveillance" prevents journalist from practicing his craft

    The file appears to have downloaded in full onto my computer -- but pages are whited out and the functions of the viewer software do not respond properly. As a result, I am able to read only a small portion of the entire 263-page report.

    The preview windows indicate that all page data was received. However, it appears that malicious interference prevents me from viewing in its entirety, and with full functionality of the program. For example, the "find" function is disabled and "whited out" on the screen when I try to conduct a keyword search.

    This apparent malicious interference has prevented me from performing the research tasks necessary to conduct my journalism career. This apparent misconduct is evidence that government surveillance programs are being employed to harass and intimidate citizens, and to control their use of telecommunications.

    Malicious interference with my telecommunications constitutes a color of law violation and the use of the telecommunications system as a tool of psychological harassment.

    In addition, this harassment represents a violation of my First Amendment rights of free speech and association, as well as a violation of my Fourth Amendment right to freedom from unreasonable search and seizure.

    I am far from alone. A fellow NowPublic.com user, "duo," (http:NowPublic.com/duo) has experienced many of the same phenomena as I, along with untold thousands, if not millions, of other similarly harassed telecommunications users.

    I once again implore the American Civil Liberties Union to assist me in filing a lawsuit against the U.S. government and its surveillance operatives on grounds enumerated above.

    Mr. Livingston, I invite you to end this spamming of the ACLU's forum and view the terms and conditions of use at the various websites you claim are "depriving" you of "your rights". They are privately owned entities and as such are not required to post everything you submit to them or be your private toilet to soil with spam or otherwise disruptive posting.
    The first amendment would apply if you purchased servers and a domain and authored a page with your ridiculous ranting on it and the government came along and told you to remove it.
    It might be for the benefit of the public and good taste, but it would indeed violate your rights. Conversely nothing would force YOU to post the rantings of every lunatic that came along and submitted garbage replies.

  3. Vic Livingston Says:

    Those privately owned entities also have the constitutional right to edit their own sites -- and NOT have government surveillance programs usurp their constitutionally-protected rights by engaging in prior restraint and outright censorship.

    My objection is to government INTERFERENCE with the right of these web sites to communicate with their readers and to be free of government censorship and interference.

    Your disinformation conveniently distorts the issue. I am not surprised -- in that you appear to be part of this Big Brother exercise.

    By the way, my anecdotal evidence indicates that these fusion center authoritarians also have maliciously tampered with the content my own blog site. By your totalitarian reasoning, I would have no first amendment rights because I do not "own" the actual site.

    Your legal reasoning is as flawed as your transparent, apparently paid-troll "psy ops."

  4. batvette Says:

    And yet the claims of government "interference" you make are solely based upon your posts appearing in a delayed manner, with the site's own announcement that posts are held for blog owner approval, or not appearing at all. Since your presence here in this forum has been called disruptive by a number of other users, and your response to them has been combative and not at all conducive to progressive discusssion, one can assume your posts you claim were withheld by the government were almost certainly actually withheld by the blog owners for disruptive posting. What evidence do you have that would lead a reasonable person to think it was the government blocking those posts, not blog owners seeking to keep their forums free from off topic spamming?
    You believe I am paid by the government to run a "psy-ops" campaign merely for offering constructive criticism here, and have inplied the same of several other people who also offered criticism in this thread. Out of the gate you shoot down any credibility one would expect of the average person to recognize government oppression from his own delusions and detached inability to receive critical input from others. If the ACLU should take up your case (bad joke) and lose, will you rant and shout at the jury that they, too, must have been paid by a government "psy-ops" program for not sharing your twisted take on reality?
    Attack my person as you like, it does not alter the fact that all evidence leads to a man so lost in grandiose self importance that he doesn't see his posts were rejected by blog owners filtering spam, not the government. The government might find some amusement within them, certainly not anything threatening to silence.

    Apparantly Mr. Vic Livingston never stumbled upon the term "redacted" on his way to the corner store where he bought the box of crackerjack he must have found that master's degree in journalism he is alleged to hold.
    I might also add that access to certain features of Adobe Acrobat Reader vary from document to document.
    I know the economy is in trouble, if you cannot buy a clue, just ask, and perhaps a kind stranger will loan you one.
    One wonders where the ACLU will be able to spend all the money they'll get in the award you seek for loss of your career... when the jury sees what talent this investigative reporter has, perhaps they will use their portion on a stick of chewing gum.

  6. Vic Livingston Says:

    The following commentary has just elicited the "held for blog owner" message upon an attempt to post to The Washington Post's "The Fix" political blog -- despite the fact that Wa-Po does NOT "hold" posts unless foul language is detected.

    Since the content is relevant to the above ACLU blog entry, I shall attempt to post the commentary here:

    WHILE THE MEDIA FOCUSES ON THE 'MACRO'...

    DEMOCRACY CONTINUES TO BE STOLEN AT THE GRASSROOTS.

    WHEN WILL TEAM OBAMA TAKE DOWN THE BUSH-CHENEY ERA 'EXTRAJUDICIAL PUNISHMENT MAXTRIX'?

    TO: President Obama, White House staff (c/o Rahm Emanuel, David Axelrod, Jay Carney); ACLU staff/members

    Mr. President, and to the ACLU:

    We as a nation must first restore civil and human rights in America and demand that government bureaucrats and power-brokers uphold the Constitution before any policy reforms and goals can be achieved.

    You must immediately join with GOP defenders of the Constitution to dismantle the nationwide extrajudicial punishment network...

    ...authoritarian bureaucrats and security/intel officers and their nationwide network of "organized community gang stalkers" -- citizen vigilantes fronted by federally-funded volunteer programs who use illicitly planted GPS devices to track, harass, and even torture innocent but "targeted" individuals.

    This nationwide, Gestapo-like operation has made a mockery of the judicial system for the past eight years and has claimed many unjustly "targeted" victims from all strata of society.

    Crimes against humanity are being committed across the nation via the use of so-called "directed energy (microwave radiation) weapons" which the Bush D.O.J. confirmed are being widely deployed to law enforcement agencies nationwide.

    These stealth weapons emit silent, pulsed bursts of various forms of radiation -- degrading and damaging the health of those on the receiving end, as well as their operators.

    This weaponry has NO PLACE in civilized society -- much less in the hands of security personnel who interact with the public, or with the nation's leaders. The widespread deployment of this weaponry virtually assures its misuse.

    Imagine if rogue actors tried to use its silent, deadly force to induce illness or to disorient, prematurely age, sicken or disable our political leaders.

    Perhaps they already have.

    Victims of this extrajudicial punishment network also see their finances and livelihoods expropriated and destroyed by secretive "multi-agency coordinated action" "programs of personal destruction" that deny them due process of law while degrading their lives and destroying their family finances.

    While your team concentrates on "macro-economics," the IRS continues to be used as an ideological weapon of social control and recrimination by these covert "multi-agency actions."

    Obama administration officials must address these abuses IMMEDIATELY, before these affronts to the Constitution destroy more American families -- and subvert the Obama presidency.

    A necessary first step: A thorough house-cleaning at secretive security and intel agencies closest to government (and extra-government) power.

    MORE APPARENT CENSORSHIP BY FUSION CENTER AUTHORITARIANS

    The following comment to reporter Brian Ross' blog at ABCNEWS.com failed to post. It has been about a half hour now, and repeated "refresh page" attempts still do not show the comment posted to the site. Other comments posted after mine DO appear.

    MORE APPARENT MALICIOUS TAMPERING WITH TELECOMMUNICATIONS BY FUSION CENTER OPERATIVES

    Now, it's "crash the browser" when I try to access certain content, or attempt to post a comment to blog items.

    Today, I have been unable to freely access The Washington Post's political blogs, "The Fix" and "44," without my browser crashing or giving me the "endless beach ball" stall. This has prevented me from reading blog items in full, or posing new comments to these blogs.

    When I tried to access a YouTube satire by Harry Shearer called "Waterboardin' USA," the browser instantly crashed.

    I tried both Firefox and Safari browsers, and the same instant crash occurred.

    These crashe appear to be part of a harassment protocal by operatives at the local Department to Homeland Security- administered "fusion center," which apparently is using remote computing software to "mirror" my internet activity and override or abort my commands. The harassment has increased in frequency as I continue to write about this subject, here and on my blog site at NowPublic.com/scrivener .

    In addition, an attempt to email the author Naomi Wolf, using an email address printed on The Washington Post web site today, was unsuccessful. I received a message stating that the address was an "unknown or illegal alias."

    I believe the government may be using filtering software to prevent certain persons from communicating, based on unconstitutional political profiling.

    As I have said before, this is the face of fascism in America. DHS Secretary Janet Napolitano, in a memo dated April 15th, admonished her department to keep politics and ideology out of their decision-making processes.

    Apparently, the operatives at the Newtown, PA facility did not readt the memo, or are insubordinate rogue actors.

    A fair reading of this thread reveals a pattern of apparent harassment and abuse that cannot be written off as a byproduct of chance or technical glitches.

    Also, I note with interest the distortions and false recitations of my experiences by the poster "batvette," whose daily cyber-stalking of me leads me to believe that he is a paid agent working at the behest of those who are violating my constitutional rights as well as the rights of site owners to edit and police their content as THEY see fit -- free of government censorship and/or prior restraint.

  9. Vic Livingston Says:

    PS -- These fusion center operatives apparently insert typos and spelling errors into the telecommunications of their "targets" as they monitor and intercept data in real time. The apparent purpose of such sadistic sabotage: to make their prey look stupid or sloppy. This happens on a regular basis, despite careful proof-reading and ACLU blog software that flags misspelled words so that corrections can be made prior to submission.

  10. Vic Livingston Says:

    NOW THE 'ENDLESS BEACH BALL' KEEPS ME FROM READING, AND POSTING TO, POLITICAL BLOGS ON 'WASHINGTONPOST.COM'...

    AND THEN THE BROWSER CRASHES.

    I OPEN A DIFFERENT BROWSER...

    SAME RESULTS.

    I believe that operatives at the DHS-administered "fusion center" in Newtown, PA are maliciously and unconstitutionally interfering with my ability to freely access and post to the internet.

    These apparent recriminations have occurred as I have specifically singled out that facility as the likely source of blatant and persistent interference with my telecommunications.

    As I have said before, this is the face of fascism in America. It appears to me that the Obama administration does not realize the extent to which the bureaucracy is in DEFIANCE of its policies and procedures.

    It is my hope that by posting here at ACLU, the "good people on the inside" can take steps to restore the bureaucracy's respect for the Constitution, and for lines of authority.

    I am being cut off from the ability to communicate with the outside world. It appears that email directed to certain persons and offices is intercepted, never to draw a response.

    Let those who are denying me my constitutional rights know that each additional violation constitutes another count in the eventual indictment against their rogue operation.

    And I believe this operation is being directed by secretive security agents and directorates in closest proximity to the seat of executive authority.

    Where's the ACLU trying to defend the free speech of talk radio when the left is ACTIVELY trying to supress it/shut them down through the FCC??? Or does free speech only apply to "what you want to hear"? Hypocrites. ACLU, impress me by trying to stop democrats from shutting down conservative talk radio, until then, take off your mask, and ask for your support from some-one else. I've spent too many years in the sandbox away from my family to have this stuff happen. I do it for them, and the other respectable, god-fearing, country loving Americans...not you. Impress me...

  13. Vic Livingston Says:

    WHEN BLOG PAGES ON THE INTERNET DON'T UPDATE...

    IT COULD BE A SIGN OF MALICIOUS TAMPERING BY ROGUE GOVERNMENT SURVEILLANCE OPERATIVES.

    The latest apparent example of continuing malicious interference with the ability of U.S. citizens and businesses to freely communicate on the internet:

    On May 8th, I attempted to access the latest postings on the "editor's blog" of my local newspaper, the Bucks County Courier-Times. I noticed that the latest posting was dated April 28th. That struck me as odd.

    Then I noticed that the browser line for the link was DIFFERENT from the link as listed elsewhere on the site. The browser line I received when attempting to access the latest blog entry was this:

    www.phillyburbs.com/opinions/blogs/courier_blogs_details/article/414/2009/april/28/specter-is-one-smart-colitician.html

    But when I try to access the ACTUAL opening page URL at:

    www.phillyburbs.com/opinions/blogs/courier_blogs/pat_walker.html

    I get THIS in my browser line:

    www1.phillyburbs.com....

    and on screen, a message appeared, reading: "page not found."

    That "1" is NOT an official Bucks County Courtier-Times web address.

    I believe this is evidence that the Department of Homeland Security-administered" fusion center" in Newtown, PA is unconstitutionally interfering with my local newspaper's right to communicate with its readers. In effect, the government appears to be TAMPERING with the newspaper's internet operations (as well as mine).

    If the Bucks County Courier-Times has a reporter who writes on computer security issues, I would like to relate my experiences as the basis of an article on apparent unconstitutional interference with the first amendment and fourth amendment rights of the news media.

    ACLU -- the is yet another basis on which to sue the U.S. government for allegedly using surveillance programs as a pretext for prior restraint, censorship, and the malicious tampering with telecommunications of U.S. citizens and commercial enterprises.

  14. Vic Livingston Says:

    Fusion center operatives monitoring this blog:

    every time you violate my constitutional rights, I will call you on it.

    Including the continuous, scrolling black bar you have now placed on the right side of my screen when I attempt to browse the ACLU blog site.

    You appear to be running a rogue operation out of the Newtown, PA "fusion center" administered by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security.

    Whether it's federal or local officials committing these apparent color of law violations, or whether it is the work of contractors, is immaterial.

    A government entity is continually violating constitutionally protected rights here.

    Will someone please call this to the attention of DHS Secretary Janet Napolitano and Attorney General Eric Holder?

    Are they unaware? Or is there gross insubordination in the ranks?

  15. Vic Livingston Says:

    LATEST AFFRONT TO THE RIGHTS OF FREE SPEECH, ASSEMBLY AND THE RIGHT TO BE FREE FROM UNREASONABLE SEARCHES AND SEIZURES:

    I signed up for the "comments" section of Wired.com, but my attempted posts will not go through.

    I checked the "cookie" settings, and a "block" had been placed on the site.

    I removed the block, but a second attempt to post also failed.

    The censoring entity also is apparently keeping me from commenting to broadcastingandcable.com. I had posted to urge a delay in the transition to digital TV (a delay that was subsequently ordered by Congress). The delay was opposed by powerful telecommunications interests in government and in the private sector.

    I believe this apparent censorship is a result of my writing in opposition to the proliferation of microwave radiation "directed energy weapons." The article I wanted to comment on involved an increase in the "black ops" budget for such weaponry.

    As I have stated before, freedom of speech is dead in America -- or at least speech unfettered by prior restraint, censorship, warrantless searches and seizures of telecommunications, and malicious tampering, apparently under the pretext of "surveillance" programs aimed at "terrorists."

  16. batvette Says:

    The first action of Vic's hapless attorneys, should any be so foolish to take his case, will be to subpoena my financial history to document this "paid by the government to get Vic" nonsense. It will not take long to see I am merely one of millions on the internet who is mildly amused passing the time poking fun at someone whose stunted social development and detachment from reality has left him so bizarrely delusional, that one cannot buy fun like this if they even sold it.
    I merely point to his post #100 which I commented on in #104. What a frikkin idiot, and he's supposed to be a journalist? Sounds like Steve Martin in The Jerk, in the sights of a sniper- "get away from these cans, he's angry at the cans!"
    However there is more to it than that, there is something to this gangstalking stuff as I myself have ben stalked in my city by people using the exact tactics described by more legitimate individuals, such as you will find at www.multistalkervictims.org. As Mr. Livingston has taken it upon himself to assume the role of spokesperson for every one of us, every time he looks like an idiot as he does here it only hurts our cause, as credibility is an asset we can ill afford to lose. I won't speculate on his motives nor do I need to. People have the right to be idiots just as others have the right to call them on it.

    MORE MALICIOUS INTERFERENCE, APPARENTLY THE WORK OF GOVERNMENT FUSION CENTER OPERATIVES:

    CENSORSHIP VIA REMOTE DISABLING OF COMPUTER FUNCTIONS.

    In the running account, above, I have described how the "copy" function of my browser is often disabled when I want to copy an attempted political posting.

    I stopped using the "copy" option in the drop-down menu and starting using the "COMMAND-C" keyboard command.

    Today, I find that function disabled -- but only when I attempted to post a political comment about the "extrajudicial punishment network" enabled by certain secretive agencies of the U.S. government.

    Rogue bureaucrats appear to be using surveillance as a pretext to harass and censor many thousands, if not millions, of unjustly "targeted" Americans. Please read my article, "Gestapo USA," for an overview.

    Today's example of apparent government near- real-time prior restraint/censorship of this "targeted" journalist (in response to a blog entry about the feud between Sarah Palin and TV host David Letterman):

    This is better than Olbermann-O'Reilly, and just as disingenuous -- two attention wh0res feeding each others' PR fetish.

    Push the envelope with jokes about a "slutty flight attendant look" and "knocking up" Palin's daughter and suddenly the political media is wall-to-wall Dave and Sarah.

    What's not to like?

    It's enough to convince Conan to trade time periods with Jay, come the fall.

    Wanna bet Palin shows up on Dave's show within a week or so?

    Remember the John McCain "feud"? How'd that end? A big "win-win."

    And the mainstream political media eats it all up. Video bread and circuses. Send in the clowns.

    (This comment also was posted to a more recent thread on the "free speech" section of blog.aclu.org. It is re-posted here as yet another example of apparent government imposition of prior restraint and censorship via Homeland Security- administered regional "fusion centers.")

    CENSORSHIP VIA GOVERNMENT INTERNET FILTERING INDIVIDUAL INTERNET USERS IS ALIVE AND WELL -- AND THE ACLU HAS YET TO CONFRONT THE ISSUE

    Some months ago, this writer, a former editor of TV/Radio Age and CableVision magazines, television industry trade journals, found he no longer could post commentary to articles on the web site of Broadcasting and Cable, the "bible" of the industry.

    This occurred in the wake of a series of commentaries in which I advocated a delay in the "digital TV transition" deadline -- a deadline that subsequently was pushed back after a deluge of adverse publicity about the possible "disenfranchisement" from broadcast television of thousands of viewing households that were unprepared for the switch to digital.

    Around the same time, I found that I was "banned" from making commentaries to articles on Politico.com, a major political web site. I had published as commentary an article advocating the delay in the digital TV deadline, along with articles critical of the government's role in creating and maintaining a "vigilante" citizen army that allegedly is violating the civil and human rights of unjustly "targeted" Americans.

    Now, months later, I continue to be blocked from posting comments to articles on both Broadcasting and Cable and Politico.com. In the same of Broadcasting and Cable, I have been told by editors there that they cannot determine why my posts are not getting through. In the case of Politico, I was told on the phone by someone who identified themselves as a Politico representative that I was banned due to making multiple postings of the same material. Yet months later, the ban remains in place, despite the fact that many other readers continue to make multiple posts on Politico threads.

    I believe what's happening is government CENSORSHIP emanating out of a Homeland Security- administered "fusion center," in my case, the installation in Newtown, PA. I believe that officials involved in telecommunications policy led to the imposition of a "filter" that blocks my posts to Broadcasting and Cable -- possibly because my commentary was effective in helping to persuade Congress to delay the digital TV deadline.

    As for the continuing ban from Politico.com, I believe that government officials may have pressured management there to maintain by banning, despite the fact that other readers have have made multiple postings are not subject to such a permanent injunction.

    I believe my case shows that certain agencies of the U.S. government are using regional "fusion centers" as a mechanism to impose prior restraint and censorship upon the telecommunications of "targeted" (in my case, unjustly targeted) individuals and families.

    This draconian policy is clearly unconstitutional and must be brought to the attention of officials of both the Obama administration and Congress.

    When I access this page, I get a BIG BLACK SCROLLING BAR running down the right side of the screen, obscuring the right side of the copy.

    That certainly seems to be the message.

    Has this happened to anyone else out there? If so, speak up here...

  23. Vic Livingston Says:

    APPARENT GOVERNMENT CENSORSHIP OF POLITICAL BLOG POSTS CONTINUES... ALONG WITH APPARENT MALICIOUS INTERFERENCE WITH INTERNET TELECOMMUNICATIONS

    Today's constitutional affronts:

    The following post to a Politico.com blog elicited a message that the post was rejected because "it is believed to be spam." It is highly doubtful that Politico's software is capable of instantly evaluating the content of political posts. The supposition here is that government "fusion censor" censors, monitoring my internet traffic in real time, are imposing censorship upon my political speech.

    When I eliminated the commentary and merely posted a link to my article, "Gestapo USA," with the message, "Memo to Rahm (Emanuel): Read this. Urgent" -- the post was allowed to go through. Here is the original post that apparently was censored:

    MR. PRESIDENT: THE ECONOMY IS NOT YOUR ONLY CRISIS.

    THE BUSH-ERA "EXTRAJUDICIAL TARGETING AND PUNISHMENT NETWORK" REMAINS IN PLACE...

    ..."MULTI-AGENCY COORDINATED ACTION" OPERATIONS AGAINST UNJUSTLY TARGETED AMERICANS DEEMED TO BE DISSIDENTS, TROUBLEMAKERS, OR SLANDERED AS SOCIAL DEVIATES.

    THIS NATIONWIDE SYSTEM OF VIGILANTE INJUSTICE POSES A CLEAR AND PRESENT DANGER TO AMERICAN DEMOCRACY -- AND TO THE OBAMA PRESIDENCY.

    The Bush-Cheney "multi-agency action" extrajudicial vigilante network and a related unconstitutional array of "programs of personal destruction" remain in place -- operating in virtually every community in the U.S., aided and abetted by local authorities.

    President Obama may not even be aware of some of the deeply entrenched "ops" that threaten his presidency...

    • A nationwide army of "community stalking" citizen vigilantes hiding behind federally-funded volunteer organizations -- using covertly implanted GPS tracking devices to stalk, harass, vandalize and terrorize unjustly "targeted" citizens and families;

    • Deployment of classified "directed energy" microwave radiation weaponry to jurisdictions nationwide -- weapons that victims of "community gang stalking" claim are used to torture and physically degrade "undesirables";

    • Multi-agency "programs of personal destruction" -- ranging from pervasive spying to a parallel system of transaction processing that victims maintain amounts to fascistic theft by deception.

    These rogue programs must be taken down to preserve the rule of law in America.

    Immediately. Before more damage is done.

    The agencies of government that are commandeering this devolution of American democracy must be reined in and reformed, top to bottom, never again to subvert the rule of law.

    CENSORSHIP DISGUISED AS POLITICAL BLOG 'ANTI-SPAM' MESSAGES -- ANOTHER WAY POLITICAL SPEECH APPARENTLY IS BEING INFRINGED UPON BY ROGUE GOVERNMENT SURVEILLANCE PROGRAMS

    The following submission to Politico.com's Ben Smith political blog would not post.

    Instead, this on-screen message was received: "Your entry is considered to be a spam."

    The item was NOT previously submitted to any Politico.com blog -- but it WAS posted to a Washington Post political blog.

    Now, Politico.com's software would have no way of knowing that. But government surveillance operatives who are misusing their "mission" to impose censorship on political speech in America would know -- if they are spying on an internet account in real-time to exercise prior restraint on mainstream media sites AND their readers.

    I strongly believe the accounts provided in this link establish as fact government censorship of political speech in America. This blatant disregard for constitutionally guaranteed rights should be a national scandal -- if the complacent mainstream media would open its eyes to accounts such as those enumerated here.

    This is the political blog submission that authoritarians apparently to do want Politico readers to see. It is a reference to South Carolina Gov. Mark Sanford's sex scandal:

    WHILE ANOTHER GOP HYPOCRITE DANCES THE SOUTH OF THE BELT-BUCKLE TANGO...

    DEMOCRACY AND THE RULE OF LAW ARE BEING STOLEN AT THE GRASSROOTS.

    AND REPORTERS TRYING TO EXPOSE IT HAVE THEIR CAREERS AND LIVES TAKEN APART BY A COVERT GOVERNMENT 'MULTI-AGENCY PROGRAM.'

    And once again, sex, lies and video distract the mainstream media from exposing a covert American politicide.

Many programs, including freeware, are able to capture screeshots of anything which appear on your monitor. For instance "faststone image viewer" can take a screenshot for you. You can then post this over on your page at NowPublic, where computer gurus can maybe figure out what they mean. This way maybe you can make some progress toward stopping your harrassment.

    * Frequent system seize-ups, prompting an inordinate number of "force quits" that require restarting of the program and/or browser.

    This systematic, apparently purposeful malicious interference with telecommunications appears to emanate from regional "fusion centers" administered by the U.S. Dept. of Homeland Security with input from local law enforcement and even private corporations -- a fascistic apparatus that appears to be imposing unconstitutional restraints on the telecommunications of those targeted.

    POTUS CO-OPTED INTO BECOMING ENABLER-IN-CHIEF FOR SECRETIVE MULTI-AGENCY VIGILANTE 'GESTAPO'?

    • Bush-legacy extrajudicial targeting/punishment network makes a mockery of the rule of law at the grassroots -- violating civil and human rights.

    • Is Team Obama unaware, naive -- or purposely misled by Bush holdovers?

    President Obama is being co-opted into becoming the enabler of a federally-funded and overseen "multi-agency coordinated action" program of nationwide extrajudicial targeting and punishment...

    ...a vigilante Gestapo that is misusing federally-funded volunteer programs to subvert the rule of law -- deploying a civilian "brownshirt"- style army that covertly implants GPS tracking devices to stalk, persecute, vandalize and harass unjustly targeted citizens and their families.

    This secretive multi-agency "program" also misuses government surveillance operations to censor, and maliciously tamper with, the telecommunications of many thousands of the unjustly targeted -- and funnels surveillance data to citizen "community stalker" harassers.

    An array of "programs of personal financial destruction" decimates the finances of "target" families -- contributing to economic distress. And microwave "directed energy weapons" are being used to degrade their very lives -- a gross violation of human rights, government-enabled crimes against humanity.

    And no authorities will investigate -- invoking the "Gulag" tactic of dismissing those who seek justice as "delusional."

    Please, Team Obama: Wake up and smell the police state that is co-opting your administration and making POTUS a pitchman and enabler for an American Gestapo.

    This apparent government censorship comes in the wake of CIA Director Leon Panetta's disclosures to Congress about a secret CIA program undertaken without the knowledge of congressional oversight committees.

    It is my belief that the program to which the CIA director referred could be a "multi-agency coodinated action program" involving several intel, security and military agencies, not just the CIA.

    It is my belief that a massive cover-up is underway -- a cover-up that is using government surveillance programs as a pretext for the blatant censorship of telecommunications of private citizens and, by extension, the mainstream media web sites that host their commentary.

    Such apparent government censorship of mass media cannot stand.

I believe that government censors are applying internet "filters" to my connection, blocking me from certain web sites. This appears to be blatant censorship.

    THE PROF. GATES 'COME OUT ON THE PORCH' POLICE HOME INVASION:
    EMBLEMATIC OF A POLICE STATE GESTAPO ENABLED BY A SECRETIVE FED 'PROGRAM' OF EXTRAJUDICIAL 'VIGILANTE INJUSTICE'

    • President Obama must dismantle the nationwide GPS-activated extrajudicial targeting and punishment "torture matrix" and remove from power the federal officials who continue to oversee it.

    FEMA, Secret Service, FBI, the military and intel agencies are among the federal enablers of volunteer community policing, anti-terrorism and town watch organizations transmogrified by Bush-Cheney into fronts for a nationwide, civilian Gestapo-like army.

    This grassroots-based extrajudicial targeting and punishment "torture matrix" uses covertly implanted GPS tracking devices to stalk, harass, vandalize and terrorize unjustly "targeted" Americans and their families.

    When "targets" travel, the GPS system alerts vigilantes affiliated with local units of this American Gestapo, triggering a systematic campaign of stalking and harassment that often includes vandalism and surreptitious home entries. The cooperation of local police denies unjustly targeted Americans their Constitutional right of equal protection under the law.

    Silent, injury- and illness-inducing microwave and laser radiation "directed energy weapons" are being used to torture, and to degrade the lives of targeted citizens -- what could be described as a quiet, ideologically-motivated genocide.

    This weaponization of the electromagnetic spectrum is every bit as socially significant as the invention of gunpowder -- but the mainstream media has yet to report in detail on the ramifications.

    Victims charge that members of this civilian Gestapo have infiltrated the health care system, calling into question the quality of the services they receive when they need hospital or emergency care.

    And companion array of “programs of personal financial destruction," using the IRS as a political weapon, sabotages the finances of targeted families. Their telecommunications and U.S. mail appear to be subject to warrantless surveillance, interception and tampering, including the alteration of financial accounts and credit card and utility billing statements.

    This systematic bypass of the American judicial system makes a mockery of the rule of law -- and political "dissidents," "whistle-blowers" and those considered to be social "deviates" are among its prime targets.

We intend the comments portion of this blog to be a forum where you can freely express your views on blog postings and on comments made by other people. Given that, please understand that you are responsible for the material you post on the comments portion of this blog. The only postings that we ask that you refrain from posting and that we cannot permit on our website are requests for legal assistance and postings that could cause ACLU to incur legal liability.

One important law in that regard is the prohibition on politically partisan activity. Given our nonprofit status, we may not endorse or oppose candidates for elective office. That means we cannot host comments on our site that show a preference for one candidate or party. Although we in no way wish to discourage you from that activity elsewhere, we ask that you not engage in that activity on our website (or include links to other websites that do so). Additionally, given that we are subject to very specific rules concerning the collection of personally identifying information through our website (names, email addresses, home address, financial information, etc.), we ask that you not use the comments portion of this blog to solicit this information from users of our website. We also ask that you not use the comments portion for advertising or requests for legal assistance, and do not add to your comment links to other websites, as we cannot be responsible for the content on other websites.

We are not able to respond to unsolicited inquiries, complaints or requests for assistance sent to this blog. Please direct your complaint or request for assistance to the ACLU affiliate in your state. Requests for legal assistance left in the blog comments will not receive a response or be published.
