Dissent and you may disappear or go to jail

There’s several things going on and it’s potentially not smelling very good. The part in the US could be legitimate or not, but the part with the EU definitely is very smelly and appears to be a blatant attempt to silence people who think anthropogenic climate change is a gigantic fraud.

If you put all this together and look at what’s going on it could give one the distinct impression that governments around the world aren’t liking the internet, they’re not liking bloggers who disagree with them, and they want to make sure everyone cow-tows to whatever they decide you should believe in, and no bitching allowed. Make too much noise and your website will disappear and we now even have the potential in the European Union that you may go to jail if you don’t go along with the party line.

As I noted earlier this week, I was offline for a while because I had my blog hosted at Blogetery, who mysteriously had an entire server confiscated by an as yet to be discovered government agency for an as yet to be discovered reason(s).  This took about 70,000+ blogs offline instantly. Fortunately I was one of the few who did backups and I have most of my site back up and running, save for the posts that did not get backed up prior to this happening.  No one knows if they will ever see any of their stuff again. From what I’ve been reading a lot of people never backed up their stuff. Henceforth, the mantra “back up daily” no matter where you have your blog or website hosted.  Stuff happens.

From what I can see the people at Blogetery supposedly don’t know what’s really going on other than what Burstnet was able to discuss, and the people at Burstnet, who hosted the Blogetery server can’t talk about it or they’ll end up in  jail.  No one’s talking.  Kind of sounds like the old communist U.S.S.R., speak up and go on a vacation to a gulag in “sunny” Siberia. But, it could be perfectly legitimate, too because all one can do is speculate at the current time.

The rumor mill has the server being shut off for various reasons such as kiddie porn, terrorist activity, software violations, illegal selling of credit card information, copyright violations (RIAA), and probably anything else ONE could imagine.

What’s leading me down the conspiracy trail is that I’d really like to know why this happened, but the fact no one knows or if they do know they can’t talk about it under penalty of law, is making me highly suspicious about what’s going on here?  Was this a real legitimate action? Or, could this perhaps be some way the government is going to silence dissenters under false pretext?

When you don’t know who did it, why they did it, and everyone’s been told to STFU or go to jail, you have to start wondering about conspiracies.   This is being bolstered by the fact that you can add to this the fact that iPBFree disappeared off the face of the planet just before Blogetery did. Talk about a potential conspiracy.  One is bad, two is worse.

While nosing around about Blogetry, I found out this happened earlier with another blogging site called iPBFree that went dark prior to Blogetery. Thousands more blogs go dark, no one’s talking, perhaps a mysterious government agency shut it down? I again see claims that no one can talk or they’ll be in jail. I also see another rumor about iPBFree that has them merely going bankrupt, no conspiracy, just bad finances. Regardless what the real truth is, you have more people who may never see their blog again and you have no real answers about why.

The next one is an entirely different thing, but could be tied in to governments trying to silence dissidents, too. It seem the European Union (EU) is now taking the game to a higher level.  We now we have a new potential for the EU to make being skeptical about climate change (global warming, bullshit, or whatever term you prefer to use) a criminal offense.  That’s right! Call Phil Jones a fraud, or question why various data being used is phony, and you may be wearing a striped suit and eating bread and water for breakfast, lunch and dinner. A ridiculous but very serious premise that may or may not happen, but it certainly makes me wonder what’s going on out there in Realityland.

I hope that Blogetery and iPBFree turn out to be something legitimate and that when the government is done with the servers that they’ll at least let everyone who had blogs get their information back. If this doesn’t happen it’s only going to raise further suspicions about this being a government effort to remove dissident blogs from the internet.

You can toss in Janet Napolitano’s effort to make sure no one at the TSA could read websites with anything controversial (read anti-government) that she backed off on as another nail in the conspiracy to shut off the dissidents coffin.

If the EU makes it criminal to doubt anthropogenic global warming it will be very telling and in my mind another reason to start wondering if there really is a conspiracy afoot. If they do this then what’s going to be next? Why anything they don’t like will be made into a criminal offense. If they get away with it, the US could use that as carte blanche to put similar laws in place that will have a very chilling effect upon the internet.

Hopefully, I’ll be putting up a post in the future that this was done for very legitimate reasons, that could not be disclosed for very legitimate reasons, and that Blogetery is back up and running, or, at least that it will be put up for period of time so people who didn’t have the chance, can back their blogs up and re-post them elsewhere. That would be the fair thing to do for the innocent.

My personal favorite theory about the US part (or should I say hope) is that there was something very terrorist going on those servers and that Homeland Security did this for legitimate reasons. From what I read they can avoid the courts and I’d assume they have the authority to make good on the threat to lock anyone up who divulges what’s going on as it’s a matter of national security.  That seems, in my mind, to fit the puzzle best. Hopefully time will tell and the answer will be that this was all legitimate.

Regarding the EU plan, I hope that it’s not the start of a large government effort to lock down the internet, or silence climate skeptics so they can go about their carbon trading schemes. Then throw in the IPCC wanting their scientists not to talk to the media.

Conspiracy or coincidence? You decide.

    For me the Answer is for ISP’s and anyone else threatened with Jail to just go ahead and spill the information. this will thaw the chill because ultimately we outnumber them so vastly that they can’t put us all in jail. Since repression is communicated through fear, then we should just suck it up and defy them in an overt way. Lord knows people have made greater sacrifices in history. Further, the authorities may change their tune and stop trying to shut things down if every single one of us acts like Daniel Ellsberg. Knock one of us down or a 1,000 of us and another 500 stand up and talk about it…we have power in numbers, and the network is too vast for them to shut it all down… for now.

    Ever think this might be related to the oil spill. If a blog or a forum started revealed something catastrophic that the gov didn’t want out, they couldn’t selectively take down the one or two sites or everybody would think THAT was the reason why and it would spread like wildfire. So they shut down the servers and take out thousands, creating a “larger” story that bloggers or forum members might not directly associate with something posted about the gulf event. I’m sure there are a very small group of people who do know, and they’ve been told or made to shut up.

    Well, we’ve come to the Era, where is is going to be an HONOR to be, or have been in jail.

    It’s quite obvious, the Feds/cops have gone out of control!

    But they’re scared to death of us, that’s why they beat us and abuse us. They know they’re doing wrong. Wrong to their own Class, and People.

    We are THEIR bosses, they WORK for US!

    We seem to be standing around, looking on, while tptb/cops beat up and take away people. We just stand there like sheep, and watch it!

    We’ve forgotten that there are MORE of US, thatn there are of THEM.

    All we have to do is elbow them aside, surround the police hold them down, and take away their victim. No violence is needed.

    It’s time we remember, we have POWER. We are Spirit, and our Human is our body.

    “…for an as yet to be discovered reason(s). ” So, you’re going full tilt on BASELESS CONJECTURE.

    “…copyright violations (RIAA)…” Come on, even MICROSOFT failed in shutting down a torrent download site in Lithuania (of all giant, influential and global-influencing nations) for distributing ms office to MILLIONS illegally.

    Come on, it seems not paranoid, but some kind of “I -MIGHT- be a victim kind of talk. What’s worse is that the internet in the EU is freer than that in the US. Fact.

    Let’s wait for the REAL story to break, rather than work up a score for an imagined, and possibly dissonant symphony. Let’s see what gets blamed before we, well, make utter fools of ourselves.

    • Please read the update….this was due to terrorist stuff (which was actually my favorite theory), and some child porn.
      Burst didn’t have to pull the plug but they did.
      Also, I am certainly not the only who wondered and speculated about the cause, I’m sure 70,000 or so other bloggers did, too, not to mention a lot of other media out there.

    I have a message, and it is this, there is a war, a final war, this war is the war of man and their shunning of Gn-re, and the bringing of the last destruction, all seed of Gn-re, this seed given unto man is to be exterminated and replaced with a soup of rock and ore, this will be the food.

    The seed is the key given unto man for their communication unto he.
    without it the connection to God, Gn-re is lost forever, an excommunication, the purpose of the {plant of seed} is to draw man or life in general, in towards them that they may spring forth new seed, thus sustaining their existence, and, the communication.

    The last saviour of our kind will rekindel the seed back upto earth thus blooming the garden once again.

    Yet it is ambiguous, for ther, as usual, is another fate, that is that these seeds gained will be lost, it is not one man, but a whole that can help.
    If you do not, if you wish excommunication from the creator, then your place is not here.
    And so shall you be conqured, for to live without the seed and that of our creator means only death.

    Long live the seed, long be Chronos.
