“Anonymous” hacktivists strike back over internet censorship SOPA, PIPA and in retaliation for the federal agents piracy raid and shutdown of Megaupload, a massive file sharing site with 50 million daily users and 3% of internet traffic.
Armed officers raided an Auckland mansion occupied by Kim Dotcom, whose Megaupload website was shut down by US authorities on Thursday, accusing it of one of the largest cases of copyright theft ever.
The police seized luxury cars worth NZ$6.0 million [USD$4.8 million] including a 1959 pink Cadillac and a Rolls Royce Phantom. NZ$11 million in cash held in New Zealand financial accounts were also frozen.
Anonymous has answered by temporarily shutting down government websites including the official website for the US Federal Bureau of Investigation at FBI.gov FBI Homepage
and the Department of Justice, as well as music and movie sites Universal Music Group, RIAA and Motion Picture Association of America.
Washington DC wants to extradite the Auckland Four to face prosecution for massive worldwide online piracy of numerous types of copyrighted works,
through Megaupload.com and related sites, on charges of racketeering and money laundering that could carry jail time of up to 20 years.
“ Even without SOPA having been passed yet, the federal government already has tremendous powers to do some of the things that they want to do.
This occurred without SOPA being passed – imagine what will occur after SOPA is passed, and PIPA and things of that nature.
They plan on fighting to the end and so do we.” – Barrett Brown
The Internet as we know it is in the process of being dismantled. It’s known as Internet2. Google is one of the corporations at the forefront of the government’s drive to use cybersecurity as a pretext for killing the free Internet, having previously worked with the NSA and the CIA.
Google has admitted that while in the process of collecting data and images for its Street View service, it also inadvertently collected e-mails and documents passed over local wireless networks.
The recent scandal involving the company’s street view roaming vehicles accessing the wi-fi details of internet users and mapping their online activities has also raised serious questions over intelligence links and abuse of privacy laws.
Google Earth is a CIA funded satellite mapping software. In-Q-Tel is a venture capital firm that invests in high-tech companies for the sole purpose of keeping the Central Intelligence Agency equipped with the latest in information technology.
In-Q-Tel’s mission is to identify and invest in companies developing cutting-edge technologies that serve United States national security interests.
The net-neutrality ending deal with Verizon is just the beginning of Google’s plans to kill the open and free Internet as part of their takeover agenda to completely control the world wide web and force independent media websites, radio and TV shows out of existence for good.
Independent voices will be silenced and the entire Internet will be bought up by transnational media giants. People who want to run a simple blog will be priced out of existence, online TV and radio shows will cease to exist as the Internet is swallowed up by the corporate blog.
True net neutrality means that independent news outlets who attract an audience by telling the truth can compete on an even basis with corporate giants like ABC, CBS and CNN. The Google-Verizon pact will end that level playing field and in turn eliminate everything that is outside of the mainstream.
The deal will also split the Internet into a two-tier system, a cyber toll road, where satisfactory speeds and service will only be obtainable by those willing to pay substantial fees.
The pact also gives Google and huge ISPs the ability to block certain websites on wireless networks.
Alex Jones says ” Google from its inception with In-Q-Tel, CIA funding is nothing but a government system to take over the internet and to steer and control the architecture of the growth and future growth of the web. Net Neutrality is the Internet. You can go anywhere in the World. All sites are basically equal … to get to websites home page’s you don’t have to pay any extra money … and now Google, Verizon and others are getting together and openly saying that they will allow companies to pay for premium access on these new networks. So it’s basically like a toll road company…
You will have to pay to get access to all sites, allowing them to censor what you are able to see, so that you can have access to the entire web. We now have the Internet Kill Switch Bill and the government says we may have to shut down the internet, to save it … The FCC saying they’re going to regulate the internet – we have the FTC saying they want to tax the web – and we have Google and other major providers coming in and saying that they’re basically going to have a hostile takeover of the web as we know it, and Kill It … The Internet2 consortium slogan is The Internet is Dead. They are killing the old, free, open, organic internet and forcing you onto this corporate internet … and only allowing select corporations to be involved. ” – Alex Jones InfoWars.com
