MORE EVIDENCE THAT U.S. GOV'T WARRANTLESS SURVEILLANCE IS USED AS A PRETEXT TO HARASS AND CENSOR VIA TELECOMMUNICATIONS
* The following attempted post to a Politico.com blog elicited a message that the comment "is considered to be a spam." It most certainly was not, and it appears the message was inserted into a "spoofed" page in real time to make it appear as though it came from Politico. Here is the post:
"Self-censorship by NYT is understandable. But government censorship of political blog speech on NYT.com is NOT. Please read this: http://groups.poynter.org/members/blog_view.asp?id=190108&post=77511"
* Comments to blog.aclu.org appear to post but when checked a day later, do not appear on the internet. Apparently, "spoofed pages" are inserted into the data stream of "targeted" citizens as a means of intercepting, censoring, or imposing prior restraint upon users' freedom of speech, association, and freedom from unreasonable searches of seizures (in this case, of computer telecommunications).
* Blocked from signing into "ww.law.com," The Legal Intelligencer web site, despite repeated checks of password registration and removal of "cookie" blocks from browser. Lead article I am trying to access concerns a civil rights attorney with whom I have corresponded in the past.
(The following appeared to post earlier today. When I returned to this page, the post was gone. So I will attempt to post it again:)

* The following comment would not post to variety.com, despite removing "cookie" blocks and repeated attempts to post. Several other comments were already posted to the article in question. When I returned to the home page of"variety.com" and clicked on the article link, no comments appeared with the story. I believe this is clear evidence that I was redirected to a "spoofed" or faked page, the work of rogue U.S. operatives using warrantless surveillance as a pretext to harass and censor via telecommunications:
IS DAVID LETTERMAN THE REAL TARGET -- OF A POLITICALLY-MOTIVATED CELEBRITY TAKE-DOWN?
Think about it. An award-winning producer for a network investigative journalism program doesn't know better than to engage in blatant face-to-face blackmail and extortion of a famous celebrity?
Come on, people. There's got to be more to this story. Here's an alternative -- and arguably, more plausible -- theory:
Someone or some entity who's got it out for Letterman -- perhaps, an entity ideologically opposed to his politics and angered by his frequent barbs at the expense of political figures such as Sarah Palin and earlier, Bush and Cheney -- receives word that Letterman employees have been pressured into having sex with the boss.
The victims of this alleged sexual harassment let their complaints become known to certain authorities, but don't go public for fear of losing their jobs. Or perhaps Letterman's employee sexual partners are themselves blackmailed into betraying their lecherous boss.
The instigating party finds a TV journalist/producer they can compromise. Perhaps the producer was himself the victim of blackmail or other pressure intended to secure his cooperation.
The producer becomes the "patsy" who is tasked with setting up a sting on Letterman.
Letterman naively (and egotistically) considers himself the victim, dutifully reports the "crime" against him to the local authorities, goes down to the grand jury, and confesses to what amounts to employer sexual harassment. (Letterman is a principal in the company that produces his program.)
CBS then has no choice but to fire Letterman and replace him with the wildly popular, up-and-coming Craig Ferguson, Dave's own anointed successor (and, ironically, also an employee of Letterman's production company).
Thus David Letterman is taken down for years of scathing comedic attacks on political figures who may or may not have used their personal and official contacts to set into motion the events that will end David Letterman's long and tumultuous on-air career. Perhaps Dave's company is permitted by CBS to produce the new Craig Ferguson Late Show, avoiding a legal battle between the network and its deposed star.
Again, all of the above is just a theory...
...a plausible theory, given the odd and incredulous circumstances which have thus far come to light.
NowPublic.com/scrivener RE: "GESTAPO USA"
* Attempted to comment to tvnewscheck.com will not post. "Submit" button disabled, apparently by real-time malicious interception of my connection by rogue government surveillance operatives.
* Comments written for Politico.com blogs appear to post, but do not appear upon refreshing the page some minutes later. Sometimes the posts appear later, other times they do not. This appears to be a classic "man in the middle" attack, by which my input into the web site is intercepted via "spoofed" or faked pages inserted into my data stream by surveillance operatives acting as censors.
Multipe posts, supra, result because when I refresh this blog page upon revisiting the site, my earlier posts do not appear.
Then when I re-post, the older submissions magically re-appear.
I believe this is the work of government surveillance operatives at the Homeland Security-administered "fusion center" in Newtown PA, who use warrantless surveillance as a pretext to maliciously tamper with my telecommunications.
I believe this is not only a violation of my constitutional rights, but a separate "color of law" violation, criminal harassment.
(Note: my last two entries on this Fusion Center Hall of Shame blog failed to appear when I logged onto this page today -- another sign that my connection is being intercepted and that "spoofed" or faked pages are being inserted into my data stream.)
ANOTHER CLEAR SIGN OF MALICIOUS INTERFERENCE AND TAMPERING WITH MY INTERNET CONNECTION
* When I attempt to log onto "yahoo.com" the browser URL line reads "m.yahoo.com" and the page that appears is headlined "yahoo.com" but clearly appears to be a "spoofed" or faked page, with a crude layout and lacking the features of a genuine Yahoo! page.
When I re-enter the "yahoo.com" URL, the browser churns, and the URL line still reads "m.yahoo.com."
Media is censored in the USA; this is another piece of incontrovertible evidence of a massive campaign of censorship and prior restraint.

(third attempt to post this...)
(Note: It appeared that this comment posted on Sat.. Oct. 3rd. When I returned to this page today, Mon., Oct. 5th, the comment did not appear. This has happened many times in the past -- an apparent "man in the middle" attack, the real-time interception of my web postings via "spoofed" or faked web pages -- in effect, a spoofed, parallel web site that appears to be "blog.aclu.org" but which apparently is under the control of malicious surveillance operatives who use warrantless spy programs as a pretext to harass and censor U.S. citizens.)
Now my posts re-appear, but not in the order in which I originally posted these items. This is malicious, unconstitutional and illegal, a color of law violation, IMO. I have reason to believe that the malicious and unconstitutional actions of surveillance operatives who apparently are responsible for this are being memorialized by their superiors, and perhaps by other agencies with the power to do something about this apparent insubordination. Or not...
MORE EVIDENCE OF MALICIOUS HARASSMENT/CENSORSHIP BY GOVERNMENT SURVEILLANCE OPERATIVES
* Recent comments to the ACLU's "Freedom Blog" at blog.aclu.org appear to post -- but when I return to the specific thread the next day, the comments are no there. Apparently, my connection is subject to a real-time "man in the middle" attack, accomplished by the generation of "spoofed" web pages that allow the interception and censorship of my telecommunications.
Never saw this iteration of an apparently "spoofed" URL in my browser task bar.
When it appeared, it stalled the action of the pages, preventing me from attempting to post a comment to a Washington Post political blog. A new government censorship dirty trick?
* Functions of computer hijacked; commands to change to another tab on the browser are not responded to; computer changes tab pages on its own, apparently being manipulated remotely as a means of malicious harassment.
* Comments to story at nydailynews.com appear to post... but when I return to the page, my comments are listed as the most recent ones posted, when the original story was linked on drudgereport.com, which generally results in many reader posts. It appears that spoofed or faked nydailynews.com pages have been inserted in my data stream in real time, allowing the interception and censorship of my comments. When I hit the "send" button to transmit a comment, the task bar reads "assets.nydailynews.com." I believe this is a fake URL generated by government surveillance operatives, an indication that spoofed or fake pages are being inserted into my data stream.
(Note: Some of the material below was previously posted, but the posts were missing when I returned to this thread and refreshed the browser page. This malicious interference with my telecommunications constitutes color of law harassment and a violation of my constitutional rights. Here is an attempted re-post of the previously posted material, along with a new top item:)
* More strong evidence that surveillance operatives are intercepting internet connections with spoofed or faked pages that allow them to censor, manipulate data, or harass U.S. citizens they target:
I noted that some readers of my blog have written that some links I have published do not work. I have noticed that "question marks" and other unusual characters show up in certain links. One of the links ostensibly was to my member page at "poynter.org", a journalism site. When I entered "groups.poynter.org/members" -- the "Victor Livingston" page still popped up. If this was a legitimate web page, and not a faked, counterfeit page inserted by surveillance operatives, the URL should not have turn up my personal members page on the site.
MORE APPARENT BLATANT GOVERNMENT CENSORSHIP OF POLITICAL SPEECH ON THE INTERNET -- USING WARRANTLESS SURVEILLANCE AS A PRETEXT TO HARASS AND CENSOR
The following commentary, written for The Washington Post political blog "The Fix," has once again elicited a "held for blog owner" full-screen message -- despite the confirmed fact that the newspaper's web site does not "hold" reader comments unless its software detects foul language.
This appears to be yet another example of blatant, unconstitutional government censorship and/or prior restraint.
Here is the apparently censored posting:
THE BAUCUS BILL: HEALTH CARE PROFITS BEFORE PEOPLE
The Baucus health care reform sell-out subsidizes the insurance industry on the backs of consumers who would be legally bound to purchase their product with no firm guarantees of reasonably priced premiums or universal access to coverage.
Simply put, the bill puts profits over people. Nixon's health care reform proposals, which mandated employer coverage, offered the American people much more in the way of real reform than this exercise in political surrender.
The White House cannot afford to further alienate its tenuous hold on the core of its political support in the Democratic Party by mollifying a single lone Republican, who went out of her way to qualify her support.
GOP intransigence and President Obama's unwillingness to lead have only stiffened liberal and progressive opposition to this sop to the insurance industry, Big Pharma, and the GOP "corporate communists" (to borrow a phrase from MSNBC's Dylan Rattigan).
The bill as passed by the committee is worse than no bill at all. Democrats must just say no to health care appeasement and demand that President Obama live up to his campaign prescription of real reform -- not a cruel joke on the American people.
Speaking of which:
COVERT HOMELAND SECURITY-LED DEPLOYMENT OF MICROWAVE/LASER RADIATION 'DIRECTED ENERGY WEAPONS' AGAINST U.S. CITIZENS MAKES HEALTH CARE REFORM A CRUEL JOKE
Access to health care doesn't help untold thousands of unjustly targeted Americans recover from the devastating physiological effects of being silently irradiated by microwave and laser radiation "directed energy weapons"...
...weaponization of the electromagnetic spectrum, a silent Bush-Cheney legacy "final solution" that may have naive officials of the Obama administration in its high-tech ideological cross-hairs.
This technology is capable of altering moods, emotions, inducing fatigue, weakness, exhaustion, confusion, life-altering injury, disease and a slow-kill death.
And key elements of the Obama administration -- chief among them the defense/security/intel establishment -- are proliferating these technologies by various modalities -- reportedly, from hand-held weaponry to satellite and terrestrial cell tower based delivery systems.
American citizens and families targeted by this covert torture matrix -- the evil product of a Homeland Security/military/intel- directed "multi-agency coordinated action program" -- also are subject to financial sabotage that decimates their livelihoods and financial resources...
...and relentless "community stalking" -- harassment, surreptitious home entries and vandalism by government-enabled vigilantes affiliated with federally-funded community policing and anti-terrorism organizations.
Warrantless, covert placement of GPS tracking devices and misuse of cell phone technology to hunt down the unjustly targeted enables this grassroots terrorism.
But the Obama administration continues to allow these warrantless intrusions into the lives of unjustly targeted American families.
The bureaucratic saboteurs and Dr. Strangeloves behind these multi-agency crimes against humanity and the Constitution must be removed from power, immediately.
President Obama must BAN the use of directed energy weapons against the American people, and BAN warrantless GPS/cellphone tracking of individuals, before this silent genocide claims more victims...
...endangering the lives of American citizens -- and the nation's political leaders -- while making a mockery of the rule of law.

MY COMMENTS TO POLITICO.COM ABOUT SARAH PALIN AND DAVID LETTERMAN: INTERCEPTED, PUT ON A 'SPOOFED' PAGE VIEWABLE ONLY TO ME? More strong evidence that government warrantless surveillance programs are being misused by surveillance operatives to censor and harass U.S. citizens. I posted a comment to a Politico.com blog item (Ben Smith blog) about Sarah Palin. It showed up on my computer with the notation that "13" comments had been posted on this item. A few minutes later, I returned to the Ben Smith blog page. This time, the Sarah Palin item noted "315" comments received. Mine was NOT among them. After scrolling through each item, I did a word search of the page, and the item did not show up. Then I refreshed the page -- and once again, the Ben Smith blog item on Sarah Palin listed "13" comments, and yes, mine showed up. Apparently, the page containing my blog post was a "spoofed" or faked web page, inserted into my data stream by rogue surveillance agents who apparently are spying on my telecommunications in real-time, 24/7. What was in the blog item that caused it to apparently be censored? Here it is: "MEMO TO Oprah: Please ask Sarahcuda if she's seen the David Letterman continuing feature, "Things More Fun Than Reading Sarah Palin's Memoir." Also, how does she react to speculation that her supporters may have helped lure Letterman to his Grand Jury confessional, by way of a TV producer who may have been used as an agent provacateur? (signed) Patsy Joe's Handler." My theory: An agency of the U.S. government is attempting to censor printed speculation that the TV producer in the Letterman case may have been used as a "patsy" to induce David Letterman to appear before the Grand Jury, where he admitted to sexual relations with female staff members.
Addendum to Sarah Palin-Letterman post, supra:
And a big black scrolling bar CONTINUES to obscure the right side of the screen when I access his thread of the ACLU "Freedom Blog."
Is this the face of FASCISM in America?

MY RECENT POSTINGS HERE DO NOT SHOW UP ON MY CONNECTION -- ANOTHER APPARENT SIGN OF UNCONSTITUTIONAL CENSORSHIP AND HARASSMENT UNDER THE COVER OF WARRANTLESS SURVEILLANCE
Today is Friday, Oct. 23, 2009. I last posted to this thread yesterday about more instances of apparent censorship and malicious tampering with my internet connection, apparently the work of government operatives using warrantless surveillance as a pretext to harass and censor unjustly "targeted" Americans and their families.
Today, the most recent posts do not show up on my connection. I say, "on my connection" because I belief that this rogue program has created a "spoofed" or faked ACLU blog site, allowing the real-time interception, alteration and/or censoring of my political speech.
This has been going on for nearly six years, that I know of. This is unconstitutional and also a color of law violation, since the telecommunications system is being used by a government program to commit psychological harassment of citizens.
I have reason to believe that my total telecommunications output (and my utterances and activities within my own home) and under 24/7 surveillance. I also have reason to believe that this sureillance is available to multiple government agencies -- including those whose agents and officials actually believe in the U.S. Constitution and in upholding the law of the land.
Therefore, I call upon those good people on the inside to do whatever they can to restore morality and the rule of law to the multiple agencies involved in this draconian program of technological and psychological harassment, enslavement and torture.
One more piece of evidence: When I access "tvnewscheck.com", a trade industry site, my browser task bar reads "a.newscheckmedia.com". I believe the prefix "a" is not part of the actual web site, but an indication that this rogue, unconstitutional program is altering the content of the site as displayed over my computer connection, perhaps so that my commentary to articles does NOT appear on the actual web site.
These crimes against the American people will not go unpunished, I believe, because this is the USA -- not Nazi Germany, from which the architects and practitioners of this lead-footed, incompetently executed multi-agency program take their neo-fascist cues.

can anyone so detached from reality actually exist? how do you walk down a city street without falling down into a hole, or wandering in front of a bus? the Mr Magoo of internet free speech has spoken, and walks among us. be scared. I also don't think Mr. Hansen apears to be an imposter, I can see right there in the picture, that's him- the grimaced expression tells me he just got off the phone with Mr. Livingston.
