‘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.

Oil Spill: Drilling Ban Imposed in New Areas of US Coast

Posted by feww on April 30, 2010

“No additional drilling has been authorized and none will until we find out what happened”

White House adviser David Axelrod told ABC TV Network that Obama administration has now banned all drilling in new areas off the US coast pending investigations into the cause of the disastrous oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico

In March Mr Barrack Obama relaxed a moratorium on new oil and gas drilling in the US coastal areas.

The ban was prompted by the ongoing massive 5,000bpd oil leak into the Gulf of Mexico, which has now reached the Louisiana coast and threatens to pollute other coastal states shoreline including Florida.

The government has since designated the Gulf of Mexico oil disaster as an “incident of national significance”T and has sent the US Navy to help prevent what could turn out to be a major ecological and economic disaster.

As reported earlier Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal has declared a state of emergency and is considering to deploy 6,000 National Guard troops to help the US Coast Guard and the Navy.

The worst thing that could happen now would be a major rupture in the damaged underwater well, resulting in a humongous amount of crude oil spilled into the Gulf.

Things aren’t as bad as they look …

Posted by feww on April 30, 2010

You guessed it: They are much worse …

Instead of ditching the offshore drilling plan, White House defends it

Taking Stock of the Oil Spill, Energy and Climate Bil and the FREEDOM TO CHOOSE SUSTAINABLE LIFESTYLES

In a nutshell …

1. The rulers have imposed upon us a method of doing things, a system of exponentially expanding economy,  that is destroying the planet.

2. We have been prevented from researching and developing alternative lifestyles, means of running our everyday lives with zero impact on the planet.

3. Coupled with the economy is an energy policy that’s destroying not just the climate, but the very air, land and water we breathe and feed from.

4. We have been hoodwinked into electing an incompetent and ill-meaning President, who’s trying to secure a second term by way of appeasing the giant corporations that have no concern other than maximizing their bottom line.

5. Some of those giants force us to chain ourselves inside vehicles  that were made by other giants,  keeping each and everyone of us locked in on the wilderness of freeways, polluted roads and streets, burning the gas they sold us, going nowhere, several hours a day, each day.

What we would expect our elected President [he was elected because the only other option allowed would have been tantamount to total moral failure] to say how he would now stop the oil plunder that is pushing the Gulf States to the verge of collapse, as each minute passes by. Instead, here’s what he had to say:

Instead of ditching the offshore drilling plan, White House defends it

“The administration’s offshore oil and gas plan proposes a thoughtful, scientifically grounded process for determining which new areas on the outer continental shelf are appropriate for exploration and development, and for assessing the potential risks and benefits of development in areas that are being explored,” the White House said in a statement.

The Obama Administration said it planned to  work closely with the Congress and state governors to assign new areas for offshore oil and gas drilling.

6. How can anyone find out that our road map is faulty and the destination non-existent? The answer is they can’t. Only disasters like the growing oil spill in the Gulf can  momentarily awaken us to the truth.  Even then our realization of reality is ephemeral. The heavy spin machine (our politicians), the agents of disinformation (the media) and other dark forces of information suppression (the Internet mafia), prevent us from seeing, hearing and experiencing.

7. By all means then sue the giants. But don’t stop there because the Administration, media and the internet Mafia deserve equal reaction.

8. Knowledge and information forms the basis of our decision-making process. Access to up-to-date information and knowledge of alternative  points of view can make the difference between whether WE and therefore our civilization survives, or becomes extinct.

Gulf Sunken Rig: No Major Spill Yet—Reports

Posted by feww on April 24, 2010

The sunken drilling rig and damaged well in the Gulf of Mexico not leaking for now: The U.S. Coast Guard

The initial oil spill from Deepwater Horizon is about 200 barrels (8,400 gallons/31,800 liters), which is regarded as a “minor spill,” according to the said Coast Guard

The slick was estimated at about 13 kilometers long (8 miles) and 3.5 kilometers (2 miles) wide and  at the last flyover by the Coast Guard, a US Coast Guard spokesman said.

“As of right now, the spill is not growing,” He added.

On  Thursday an unmanned submarine inspected the area, but found no leaks of from the sunken drilling rig and no crude oil flowing from the damaged well, a Transocean representative said.

This situation, of course, could change because oil wells gushing at a rate of 8,000 barrels per day don’t heal automatically after a fire. [According to an unconfirmed report, the oil well was capped on Friday. Even if true, there’s no guarantee that the seal would hold.]

The oil rig had a supply of 700,000 gallons (2,650,000 liters) of diesel on board, stored for its huge electricity generators, but the authorities don’t know whether the fuel was consumed by the fire or sank with the oil rig.

The slick poses a threat to the Louisiana coastline, depending on the wind pattern

A day earlier, however, officials had said the slick was 5  miles by 1 mile.] Photo credit:  AP. Image may be subject to copyright. See FEWW Fair Use Notice for details.

Statement of Transocean Ltd. CEO Steven L. Newman Following U.S. Coast Guard Announcement

ZUG, SWITZERLAND, Apr 23, 2010 (MARKETWIRE via COMTEX) –Following the suspension of U.S. Coast Guard search-and-rescue efforts to find 11 missing persons in the U.S. Gulf of Mexico, Steven L. Newman, President and Chief Executive Officer of Transocean Ltd. (NYSE: RIG) (SIX: RIGN), on the ground in New Orleans, expressed his deepest sympathies on behalf of the company to the family members of those lost. The nine Transocean personnel and two employees of a third-party company have been missing since Tuesday, April 20, 2010, when a fire and explosion occurred onboard the semisubmersible drilling rig Deepwater Horizon, which sank on Thursday.

“As the nation and everyone in the Transocean family mourns the tragic loss of these people, our deepest sympathies are with their families and friends today,” said Mr. Newman. “Transocean is doing everything we can to meet their needs during this difficult time, and our family response team members are in close contact to provide all necessary support. I would once again like to express our gratitude to the U.S. Coast Guard, BP and everyone involved for their exhaustive search and rescue efforts, despite this very sad outcome.”

What People Said?

Democratic Sens. Robert Menendez and Frank Lautenberg: “Big Oil has perpetuated a dangerous myth that coastline drilling is a completely safe endeavor, but accidents like this are a sober reminder just how far that is from the truth,” said  in a statement.

Louisiana State University environmental sciences professor Ed Overton speaking to the Associated Press. “It’s going to be a … mess for a while … I’m not crying doomsday or saying the sky is falling, but that is the potential.”

Sen. Bill Nelson (D) of Florida: “As a part of the effort to expand drilling, the oil industry as recently as Tuesday was pressing the government agency responsible for leasing offshore lands to quickly proceed with a study of the effects of surveying for oil off the Atlantic coast. That came just hours before the Tuesday night explosion.”

The White House told Washington Post that President B.O. won’t reconsider the offshore oil and gas drilling proposal despite the Deepwater Horizon disaster.

Some 858 fires and explosions have occurred in the Gulf of Mexico since 2001, resulting in 69 offshore deaths and 1,349 injuries, the federal Minerals Management Service said.

The Deepwater Horizon disaster comes just days after the Obama administration proposed opening up large blocks of the Gulf for deepwater oil and gas exploration.

The explosion occurred just two weeks after a coal mine explosion in Montcoal, West Virginia killed 29 miners.

These disasters beg the question, what will the administration do next year to meet with the unreasonable, unsustainable rise in energy demands to feed the terminally ill economic system of exponential growth.

While it is certain that the unsustainable system must and will collapse, it’s unclear which few of our ecosystems and how much of their services might survive.

Our world could have survived and thrived on about 8 percent of current energy consumption.
