‘PRISM’: Anything So Patently Evil, Applied on Such Grand Scales, WILL Backfire in Big Ways

For the past five years, FIRE-EARTH Moderators have protested about censorship of news and information and abuse of their intellectual property rights, posted on this as well as several affiliated blogs, by Google and their business partners.

Slide No 5 does NOT include companies that are protected by the NSA-FBI in their joint venture Internet spy program.

The following are the facts about data mining, information censorship and related issues based on professional and personal experiences of the Blog Moderators, their colleagues and friends.

  • PRISM cannot operate successfully without the collaboration of the so-called tech giants, which include Microsoft, Yahoo, Google, Facebook, Paltalk, AOL, Skype, YouTube and Apple according to the report.
  • The scope of data mining as it pertains to commercial participants goes all the way down to smaller companies and includes blog and micro-blog providers like Twitter [the surveillance world's preferred weapon of choice because of the ease by which it's data-mined] and WordPress, which host FIRE-EARTH.
  • The roots of large-scale data mining operations are sewn in industrial espionage and have very little to do with the so called “war-on-terror.” [The Benghazi planned murders, massive government monitoring of the AP, recent IRS shenanigans ... provide ample proof.]
    • Note: Industrial espionage, or economic espionage, is the stealing of commercial data and secrets from its legitimate owners for use by other parties. This form of espionage is conducted solely for commercial purposes and has little to do with national security. Furthermore, this type of theft is NOT usually perpetrated by foreign governments, as the current case clearly shows.
  • While the tech giants have denied any knowledge of PRISM, or similar programs operating under other acronyms, the fact remains that the government programs do not have the ability to instantly remove, or bury  unwanted materials posted on the Internet, as experienced by the blog moderators. Google does!
    • Note: Despite FIRE-EARTH’s unsurpassed record of accurate disaster forecasts, the blog traffic was cut down overnight by 80-90 percent on January 29, 2013.
  • “They quite literally can watch your ideas form as you type,” said a career intelligence officer who [allegedly] leaked PowerPoint slides about PRISM and supporting materials to The Washington Post in order to expose what he believes to be a gross intrusion on privacy.
    • Despite any Psyop undertones that maybe hidden in the above statement, pointing to “self-censorship,” FIRE-EARTH moderators experience the real-time surveillance almost constantly.

Google Censorship Violates the US Constitution and International Law

Posted by feww on June 16, 2008

The Human Rights of an Octogenarian Chinese Woman

Google has effectively blocked the following posts from its search engines:

Brave New Zealanders Bash Octogenarian Chinese Woman to Death and

New Zealand Racist Storm Worse Than China Quake at

New Zealand: Plumbing the Depth of Depravity

Google Censorship is a Flagrant Violation of Our Freedom of Speech!

Freedom of speech is being able to speak freely without censorship. The United States Constitution protects opinions under inalienable 1st Amendment free speech rights.

The right to freedom of speech is also guaranteed under international law through numerous human-rights instruments, notably under Article 19 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and Article 10 of the European Convention on Human Rights.

How much longer is Google allowed to continue its censorship in violation of the United States Constitution and the international law?

Why Didn’t China Prevent the Loss of 86,000 Lives?

Posted by feww on May 29, 2008

China Regime: As Evil as Evil Comes!

Are Earthquake Predictions in China Political?

The following excerpts are from an article written by Wu Weilin, Epoch Times Staff [ May 28, 2008 ] Full Article

Was the recent devastating earthquake in Sichuan, China predicted before it struck? Did the Chinese regime ignore earthquake warnings and thereby caused the loss of more than 86,000 lives?

“On July 28, 2006, the Director of the China Earthquake Administration, Chen Jianmin, was speaking on a program of the regime’s mouth piece, China’s Central TV station. He stated with certainty that earthquakes were predictable. But immediately after the recent devastation in Sichuan, Chinese officials claimed that the prediction of earthquakes was a tough task worldwide. Another commentator said that earthquake prediction in China is a political issue.” Said Wu Weilin of Epoch Times.

What Happened to the Predictions?

“According to Chen, China has been predicting earthquakes since the Xingtai earthquake back in 1966, which killed 8,064 people. ‘Through continuous scientific research and information gained from many actual cases, we can make a prediction on a certain type of earthquake.’ However, after the earthquake in Sichuan took place, Zhang Ziaodong from the China Earthquake Networks Center held a press conference at China’s State Department on May 13. At the conference Zhang denied the quake in Sichuan was predictable and said that predicting earthquakes was a ‘difficult task worldwide.’”

Why did the Chinese media stay quiet about this important issue? “A frontline reporter disclosed that Beijing had sent out rules on reporting the earthquake, ‘To propagate positive, constructive news and forbidding criticism and introspective articles.’ Recently, according to our source, Beijing has officially banned discussing the subject of earthquake prediction in public.

“However, more and more information has indicated accurate prediction on the quake had been presented to Beijing on many occasions. The communist military had also taken preventative measures based on the predictions.”

Predictions Had Saved Lives Before, Why Not This Time?

“Chen also said during an interview with CCTV two years ago, that following an accurate prediction, a quake that took place in China on February 4, 1975, only took 1,300 lives instead of 100,000. Chen also gave examples from overseas, how predicting earthquakes had cut down the number of deaths – only three died in California in 2003 and 40 in Japan in 2004, two countries where earthquake prediction was released before the event.

“By May 24, 2008, the Sichuan quake was estimated to have killed 60,560, injured 352,290, and 26,221 people were still missing, according to information released from China’s State Department. A Chinese social economist, He Qinglian, commented about the difference in speeches coming out of Beijing about quake prediction before and after Sichuan, ‘In China, earthquake prediction is pure science and earthquake forecasting announcement is pure politics. This is how it works in China, whether in the past or present.‘” [emphasis added.]

Google Gag

Posted by feww on May 22, 2008

Haunted by Big, Bad Google

The blog moderators condemn Google Inc in the strongest possible terms for content censorship. Google search engines permanently or periodically exclude specific posts, contents or information from the blogs thereby abridging the freedom of speech.

Google Inc poses a clear and present danger to freedom of speech. To minimize this threat, we urge those of the lawmakers who still believe in the Constitution to break up Google into smaller units.

The Anguished Cries of China Quake Nurse

Posted by feww on May 18, 2008

Why was the quake nurse reduced to tears and had to beg the soldiers to rescue children?

If rescuing the children wasn’t their priority, and clearly it wasn’t, what were the soldiers ordered to do?

Anguished Chinese Nurse Serving in the Earthquake Disaster Area:

Please Rescue The Children!

Photo below was taken by Jason Lee of Reuters news agency (China). The caption reads:

“A nurse holding a general’s written order begs soldiers to rescue surviving children still buried in the ruins of another nearby school in the old city district near a mountain at the earthquake-hit Beichuan county, Sichuan province, May 15, 2008. The soldiers are not under the command of the general, whose written order reads: ‘Please arrange for rescue operations at this school as quickly as possible.’”

What were the orders soldiers own general gave them?

When did the authorities decide they couldn’t cope with too many quake survivors?

The Olympics can wait; the survivors can't!

"Although the time for the best chance of rescue, the first 72 hours after an earthquake, has passed [exactly as planned by CPC], saving lives remains the top priority of our work [believe what I say, not what I do, you 'ignorant peasants'],” the [doublespeaking] Chinese president, Hu Jintao, told the survivors. (Source)

To the CORRUPT Chinese Government: The World is Watching YOU!

“Parents’ grief turns to anger at shoddily built deathtrap schools”

“Three days after the quake struck, troops and fire engines queued idly along the roadsides waiting for orders.”

“‘I saw a doctor walking along the lines of bloody bodies, checking pulses and looking at wounds. If he shook his head the nurses were instructed not to take the person to the operating theatre but move them to another room to die. It was like a scene from a war film,’ she said.” (Source)

Chinese paratroopers rescuing survivors or preventing plague?

Posted by feww on May 16, 2008

The Riddle of the Chinese Paratroopers

China parachutes 100 paratroopers to “cut-off” quake area

The first batch of 100 elite paratroopers were parachuted into an area near the epicenter of Monday’s earthquake in southwest China ["cut-off" area in Maoxian county, northeast of the epicenter in Wenchuan] Wednesday afternoon [about 60 hours later], reported Xinhua.

So what’s the problem?

1. There are an estimated 30,000 people burried in the area. How could 100 paratroopers help rescue such large number of victims?

2. The paratroopers landed two days after the mainshock had struck. By then the survival chances of the victims who had been buried alive had already been reduced by about 80 percent.

3. Anyone rescued from the rubble would need medical attention, freshwater, food, blankets, tents … to survive. Did the paratroopers carry all of the vital supplies in their rucksacks?

Therefore, the question remains: Are the paratroopers sent to rescue the “survivors,” or to “finish off the job,” i.e., bury everyone, alive or dead, to prevent potential outbreaks of plague and other pandemics? [The Beijing Olympics are just around the corner!]
