Why all Christians should support SOPA

SOPA is the new anti-piracy bill currently being debated by congress. Liberal groups are up in arms over the bill, doing their best to oppose it. Despite extensive protest from internet service providers, pornographers and advocated of "alliterative" moral structures divorced from Biblical standards, the bill marches on. Many people ask "Why?" The answer is simple, because SOPA is good for America. Here's a quick summary of why:

SOPA returns the Internet to US control.

Originally created for use by the US military, the Internet has become a free-for all, where anyone who can rent server space anywhere in the world can host political propaganda, child pornography, videos advocating genocide and Islamic Jihad. SOPA reasserts US control over a fair hunk of the Internet. If your web site's URL is registered with a US organization or the IP address is provided by ARIN, SOPA reclaims US authority over piracy using your site and domain. In practice this means the USA can save all .COM, .NET and .ORG domains from the current wild west mentality of "anything goes" It also means all servers hosted in the USA, Canada and most Caribbean nations can be bought under US control.

SOPA cuts off the money stream for pirates.

For web site operators the main motive for pirating software, music and movies is advertising revenue. SOPA lets the US government cut off that revenue, removing the finical motive for the people profiting from piracy.

SOPA makes theft a crime again.

Under current US law, stealing movies, music and software is a civil problem. It's not considered "theft" even though that's exactly what it is. SOPA applies criminal penalties to the criminal act of stealing. In so doing it closes a MASSIVE loophole in US law.

SOPA will make web sites do more to police users.

Under current US law, web sites are protected from prosecution over comments or content posted by users. In practice this means Facebook is immune when people use it to swap stolen music. Thousands of Internet forums dedicated exclusively to trading pirated material are immune so long as all the piracy is coming from the users. SOPA will close this loophole, requiring web sites to actually moderate the content they host and delete illegal material. This will have the added bonus of moving more policing to the private sector, requiring fewer government and law enforcement resources to monitor the Internet.

SOPA lets the US finally censor the Internet.

If you don't play by US rules, your web site will be blocked. Most of the Internet's major data trunks go through the USA. People visiting a European web site from South America will be relying on cables and servers in the USA for part of the communication. SOPA will let the USA block not just the traffic TO US users, but traffic going THROUGH the USA to other countries. Offending sites will be blocked not just in the USA, but in South America. This means South American web sites can be blocked from being seen by the rest of the world, even if they're not using a .COM, .NET or .ORG domain name. 

For the moment this censorship is limited to piracy, but SOPA leaves the door open for FCC style administration of the Internet. It creates a central reporting agency with broad latitude in blocking offensive and illegal traffic. Pornography sites will be among the first to go, as most of them rely heavily upon at least some pirated content. Taking them down will be the thin edge of the wedge that will eventually let the USA have near complete control over what is and is not allowed on the Internet.

Venezuela will cease to exist outside of South America.

SOPA will let the USA effectively cut Venezuela off, restricting it's Internet connectivity to other South American nations. Because of the heavy use of the Internet in passing voice traffic this means Venezuela will be unable to communicate with any nation outside of South America by any means beyond physical mail. Not even cell phones would provide a loophole, as that traffic all goes through telecommunications organizations in the USA. How long will the Communist regime in Venezuela survive with it's ability to communicate with, and thus do business with, nations outside of South America severed?

In summary, SOPA takes the immoral morass of the Internet, and places a large hunk of it under the control of a Christian nation founded on Biblical principals. A good deal of the deviant influences attacking the USA today are based on foreign sources, and blocking them will further aid in rebuilding the moral foundation of the United States of america.

SOPA is good for business and good for the people. It's a win-win bill, unless of course, you're a criminal.

Ray Comfort on Andy Rooney

Sunday, November 6, 2011

It was a sad day for America when Andy Rooney died.  CBS News announced recently that the 92 year-old cranky commentator died after complications following minor surgery.

Rooney appeared on “60 Minutes” for many years, mostly giving comments about every day annoyances.  For example, he thought that dogs were nicer than people.  I can see his point of view, because he worked in the cut-throat entertainment industry.  But I know some really nice people, and some really nasty dogs who would eat you alive, if they had half a chance.   

I learned two things from Andy Rooney.  One was to always rip out eyebrows that get too long.  I learned not to let the garden go to weed.  He didn’t bother doing any trimming, and in time almost disappeared behind two white tumble-weeds. 

But the greatest lesson I learned from this TV commentator, was his cynicism about the existence of God.  Mr. Rooney wasn’t open-minded about the most obvious of truths.  He didn’t believe that God existed. 

Now he knows.

Scott Olsen and The Rise and Fall of Occupy Wall Street

The Rise and Fall of Occupy Wall Street 

The following is an excerpt from the upcoming book "The Rise and Fall of Occupy Wall Street" by Alexander Cornswalled.

The book starts with a history of the "Occupy Wall street" movement and how it was infiltrated by criminal elements selling drugs to the protesters. The drug related crime that sparked the initial, disastrous, effort to clear the Oakland camp is discussed, as well as Mayor Quan's disastrous decision to send her police officers into battle with drug dealers armed only with rubber bullets. The book excerpt pick up with the onset of resistance by drug dealers:

Stray # characters in the text below reflects footnotes and source citations in the original book.

The fallen "hero": Occupy Oakland
Unfortunately for Quan, the criminal element was not wiling to go peacefully. While the media has not made a point of reporting police injuries with the same fervor with which it reported civilian injuries, it appears that the criminal element fired first, not with guns, but with rocks, bricks and bottles, the classic improvised weaponry of protesters. The efforts to peacefully evict the protesters were scuttled by the very criminals causing the problems. Soon the criminal induced violence escalated, and the more hot-headed of the protesters joined in. The Oakland police had, thanks to Quan’s hand-wringing fear of voilence, come armed with little more than rubber bullets. They had a scant supply of crowd control weaponry in a few SWAT vans but none of the heavy artillery in the possession of some of the drug dealers reported in the camp. Mayor Quan’s zeal for defending the protesters had left her officers dangerously unprepared for a firefight.

The police made the decision to raid the SWAT vans, allowing them to retrieve a number of tear gas grenades. These were quickly used, the scant supply exhausted in an effort to disperse the crowd. The attempt was largely successful, as evidenced by the endless complaints by people who were exposed to tear gas but suffered no other violence to their persons. # # #

Unfortunately, the gang violence had not been dissuaded by the tear gas, and one group had decided to take out their frustration at being routed by attacking other protesters. One of those victims was Iraq war vet Scott Olsen.# To this day reports about exactly what happened to Scott have been conflicting and soaked in bias.# Initial sources claimed he had been hit whit a flash grenade by Oakland police. # # # Other reports claimed the same police officer had prevented rescuers from reaching him. How the identity of the officer could even had been discerned with all the tear gas  in the air is debatable, if it even was a police office who attacked him.

Regardless of the source, Olsen experienced head trauma necessitating hospitalization. Despite making a full recovery, his injuries resulted in a significant, though temporary increase in war vet presence at the protests.# The temporary nature of this increase was due in part to Olsen being the founder of the anti-military web site “a private user forum apparently dedicated to bashing the Marine Corps.” He is also a member of the anti-military organization Iraq Veterans Against the War. His long standing hatred of the military is well documented online. For example, according to the article this was his reply to questions people were asking about the Marine Corps. His profanity has been replaced with asterisks for this publication.

The Marine Corps thrives on its image. They convince young men and women that they’re joining a professional military organization. But that’s not the case at all, every Marine knows it, and most have no problem downplaying the bull**** to outsiders so they can protect their “beloved corps”. I noticed some of the other posters have told you not to pay any attention to my site because we’re just a bunch of ********* who couldn’t hack it, right? Maybe not hacking it means we saw through the bull**** and don’t want to take it. Maybe the brainwashing didn’t work on us. I’m not here to tell you if you should join or not. I’m here to advise you to take the people who visit my website just as seriously as anybody who tries to sell you the MC as a good thing.

My site is anonymous, these people don’t have to worry about hiding from the MC, or protecting the MC’s image or anything. It is unfiltered truth.
Former Marine, owner of

He doesn't just hate the military, he’s a drug user too.# He even proudly post photographs of his pot plants online.#

I was talking to my 1stsgt regarding a pending adsep since i had been accused of using cocaine.  Anyway, when we were done talking, he used as a parting greeting “stay marine”.  He clearly didn’t think that one through.  It was no secret that I couldn’t wait to get out and on top of that, the MC was trying to kick me out.  I was going to bust his balls over it, but I went and took a nap instead.

His history of drug use and advocacy raises some inserting questions about his motivation for being at the Occupy Oakland protest. Were his injuries really the result of police brutality as many claimed, or was he a drug dealer who was attacked by other dealers who were enacting vengeance for invading their turf? Was he a drug user who had tried to stiff a dealer?

Mayor Quan, horrified at the violence that resulted from her rushed plans to “peacefully” evict a refugee population infested with criminals, quickly crumpled, allowing the protesters back into the square and even giving all city officials other than the police a day off the participate in the protests. The police, who had been attacked and injured by her original plan, were not amused. #

Kayvan Sabeghi gets what traitors deserve

This "Vetrans against the war" group is a socialist front. The members are a bunch of traitors who are desperate to undo the work the USA has done in the Middle East. Every one of them deserves to be stripped of their rank and benefits and jailed for sedition. I'm glad another one of these monsters has been hospitalized. I for one will be writing the Oakland police to congratulate them on their firm handling of the pottests, despite the pathetic hand-wringing of the cowardly mayor.
