Looks like Anonymous has hacked into the SCOTUS website - pissed about Swartz

http://www.ussc.gov/

Looks like Anonymous is pissed about how the USDOJ ran over Aaron Swartz.

If it's fixed by the time you read this, here's the youtube video posted before the text:



Citizens of the world,

Anonymous has observed for some time now the trajectory of justice in the United States with growing concern. We have marked the departure of this system from the noble ideals in which it was born and enshrined. We have seen the erosion of due process, the dilution of constitutional rights, the usurpation of the rightful authority of courts by the "discretion" of prosecutors. We have seen how the law is wielded less and less to uphold justice, and more and more to exercise control, authority and power in the interests of oppression or personal gain.

We have been watching, and waiting.

Two weeks ago today, a line was crossed. Two weeks ago today, Aaron Swartz was killed. Killed because he faced an impossible choice. Killed because he was forced into playing a game he could not win -- a twisted and distorted perversion of justice -- a game where the only winning move was not to play.

Anonymous immediately convened an emergency council to discuss our response to this tragedy. After much heavy-hearted discussion, the decision was upheld to engage the United States Department of Justice and its associated executive branches in a game of a similar nature, a game in which the only winning move is not to play.

Last year the Federal Bureau of Investigation revelled in porcine glee at its successful infiltration of certain elements of Anonymous. This infiltration was achieved through the use of the *same tactics which lead to Aaron Swartz' death. It would not have been possible were it not for the power of federal prosecutors to thoroughly destroy the lives of any hacktivists they apprehend through the very real threat of highly disproportionate sentencing.

As a result of the FBI's infiltration and entrapment tactics, several more of our brethren now face similar disproportionate persecution, the balance of their lives hanging on the severely skewed scales of a broken justice system.

We have felt within our hearts a burning rage in reaction to these events, but we have not allowed ourselves to be drawn into a foolish and premature response. We have bidden our time, operating in the shadows, adapting our tactics and honing our abilities. We have allowed the FBI and its masters in government -- both the puppet and the shadow government that controls it -- to believe they had struck a crippling blow to our infrastructure, that they had demoralized us, paralyzed us with paranoia and fear. We have held our tongue and waited.

With Aaron's death we can wait no longer. The time has come to show the United States Department of Justice and its affiliates the true meaning of infiltration. The time has come to give this system a taste of its own medicine. The time has come for them to feel the helplessness and fear that comes with being forced into a game where the odds are stacked against them.

This website was chosen due to the symbolic nature of its purpose -- the federal sentencing guidelines which enable prosecutors to cheat citizens of their constitutionally-guaranteed right to a fair trial, by a jury of their peers -- the federal sentencing guidelines which are in clear violation of the 8th amendment protection against cruel and unusual punishments. This website was also chosen due to the nature of its visitors. It is far from the only government asset we control, and we have exercised such control for quite some time...

There has been a lot of fuss recently in the technological media regarding such operations as Red October, the widespread use of vulnerable browsers and the availability of zero-day exploits for these browsers and their plugins. None of this comes of course as any surprise to us, but it is perhaps good that those within the information security industry are making the extent of these threats more widely understood.

Still there is nothing quite as educational as a well-conducted demonstration...

Through this websites and various others that will remain unnamed, we have been conducting our own infiltration. We did not restrict ourselves like the FBI to one high-profile compromise. We are far more ambitious, and far more capable. Over the last two weeks we have wound down this operation, removed all traces of leakware from the compromised systems, and taken down the injection apparatus used to detect and exploit vulnerable machines.

We have enough fissile material for multiple warheads. Today we are launching the first of these. Operation Last Resort has begun...

Warhead - U S - D O J - L E A - 2013 . A E E 256 is primed and armed. It has been quietly distributed to numerous mirrors over the last few days and is available for download from this website now. We encourage all Anonymous to syndicate this file as widely as possible.

The contents are various and we won't ruin the speculation by revealing them. Suffice it to say, everyone has secrets, and some things are not meant to be public. At a regular interval commencing today, we will choose one media outlet and supply them with heavily redacted partial contents of the file. Any media outlets wishing to be eligible for this program must include within their reporting a means of secure communications.

We have not taken this action lightly, nor without consideration of the possible consequences. Should we be forced to reveal the trigger-key to this warhead, we understand that there will be collateral damage. We appreciate that many who work within the justice system believe in those principles that it has lost, corrupted, or abandoned, that they do not bear the full responsibility for the damages caused by their occupation.

It is our hope that this warhead need never be detonated.

However, in order for there to be a peaceful resolution to this crisis, certain things need to happen. There must be reform of outdated and poorly-envisioned legislation, written to be so broadly applied as to make a felony crime out of violation of terms of service, creating in effect vast swathes of crimes, and allowing for selective punishment. There must be reform of mandatory minimum sentencing. There must be a return to proportionality of punishment with respect to actual harm caused, and consideration of motive and mens rea. The inalienable right to a presumption of innocence and the recourse to trial and possibility of exoneration must be returned to its sacred status, and not gambled away by pre-trial bargaining in the face of overwhelming sentences, unaffordable justice and disfavourable odds. Laws must be upheld unselectively, and not used as a weapon of government to make examples of those it deems threatening to its power.

For good reason the statue of lady justice is blindfolded. No more should her innocence be besmirked, her scales tipped, nor her swordhand guided. Furthermore there must be a solemn commitment to freedom of the internet, this last great common space of humanity, and to the common ownership of information to further the common good.

We make this statement do not expect to be negotiated with; we do not desire to be negotiated with. We understand that due to the actions we take we exclude ourselves from the system within which solutions are found. There are others who serve that purpose, people far more respectable than us, people whose voices emerge from the light, and not the shadows. These voices are already making clear the reforms that have been necessary for some time, and are outright required now.

It is these people that the justice system, the government, and law enforcement must engage with. Their voices are already ringing strong with a chorus of determined resolution. We demand only that this chorus is not ignored. We demand the government does not make the mistake of hoping that time will dampen its ringing, that they can ride out this wave of determination, that business as usual can continue after a sufficient period of lip-service and back-patting.


Not this time. This time there will be change, or there will be chaos...

They also made the original website editable by anyone, follow the link at the end on the website. It's amusing to play with.

5. 3000 people REAL PEOPLE died on 9-11. though conspriacy theorist loons think otherwise

 

conspiracy theorists have a warped view of life in the world

real people died on 9-11

and a few collateral from drones would have died in a man to man combat anyhow, along with 10,000 other people

meanwhile hacking is illegal and should be charged as terrorism and blackmail and all that.

V was a stupid rightwing anarchist extremism that should not be idolized

But then there are some very delusional people that thought Tim McCoward was a hero for killing innocent babies.

Of course, some people also thought the cops on Danzinger bridge were heroes too.
Or that Oliver the shredder was a hero. In fact, he ran for office.

go figure.

They should make the NRA a terror org. and anyone that finances them aiding and abetting terrorism, and go from there

BTW, the constitution gave the president the war powers act, and congress has reaffirmed that we are in a war on terror three times over.

And anarchists and terrorists are indeed illegal.

There is NO first amendment right to yell fire in a theatre to create chaos and anarchy

16. "3,000 real people died on 9/11" and "hacking should be charged as terrorism"

There's just something about those two statements that keeps them from jiving together.

Also, V isn't idolized. I feel I've explained this to you before, but what the hell. There's a scene in the film where the citizens of Britain all receive a Guy Fawkes mask. They don them and are in effect empowered by the anonymity afforded. It's for that scene that Anonymous sometimes utilizes the same mask. it's not the design that matters so much as the anonymity granted.

30. real people are being sent to prison unjustly while

the rich avoid it. They plan to fill the privatized prisons with the poor and middle class. The laws already reflect that. Hell even traffic court is a court for two party's. The haves get a real lawyer and charges are automatically lessened or dropped. While the people least able to weather the charges get the full brunt of the law.

We all know the "lawyer" they give you for criminal court is nothing more than a translator of legalese. They meet you 10 minutes before they go in to "defend" you. They are a fucking joke.

The rich will keep on taking until the rest of us are too weak to even try to stand up to them.

I wish anonymous could transfer all of the money of the rich into one of those offshore accounts. That would equal the playing field a bit.

when you tear down the last rich person, who will you blame next?

First they came for the rich, and nobody cared because they were rich...

that is what was so good about the 3 Dark Knight movies.
Made that exact point.

there are not enough rich to take down, that next year, what are you planning to take down?

and besides, 99% of America who work for corporaitons are 9 to 5ers and 99% of people who have funds and stocks from their benefits, are helped when stocks go up

take all that away, and what do you have?
More unemployed and poor

but you can I guess have another glass of whine that way

first they came for the rich and nobody cared

this burn them down then having no idea what to do after is utter Kaos.

61. but going after the rich is delicious today, but you would be hungry tomorrow

 

there are NOT enough rich to sustain life forever once you get rid of the rich

who next? The upper middle class?
then the middle class?
then the lower middle class?

Once you devour a class, you no longer have that object to blame

the rich do NOT have enough liquid or any type of funds to sustain life on earth once you take that away.

It is a quick fix with no permanent solution

So "tear down the rich" is just a hollow nothing.

Just as silly would be to print a million dollars for the whole world, therefore everyone is equal.

but then how would things get done?

All it is are cheap soundbytes.

But I don't expect most on this thread to either get it, or alter their thinking.

Because it's easier to say "Robin Hood" (who was a fictional character too).
(and the people that own his TM probably are mega rich).

If anyone went after the rich, I am sure that they would not come badk empty handed.

And there will always be someone to take their place. There is no danger in not having enough if the rich went to prison or hell.

137. what about next year?

 

when the mob goes and kills the monster (which in other words could be equated to a lynching) historically, what happens when the world is not perfect afterward?

who does the mob go after next?

BTW, Gorby tore down the walls and gave the USSR it's freedom

however, once he did, they tore Gorby down, and the people had no idea what to do next.

change was not immediate, therefore the people somewhat tore down what they had won to get immediate satisfaction

so what do they have now?

those that accepted it would take a long time
but there are those that wanted it all

Parts of the former USSR then, are now doing great
other parts are not

things don't instantly magically happen

(as for the American Revolution, it took the slaughtering of the vast majority of Native Americans, and the robbing of their property and land to get to the point of the so called revolution.

as they said in the 1960s
and its 1-2-3 what are we fighting for?

what are today's rebels w/o a cause fighting for?

and how will they achieve it?

They tore it down in 1968, and its taking 40 years to start building it back up
and people again are making the mistakes of 1968 and will take us then another 45 years after if they were to succede.

(i.e.-the right above means those that tossed LBJ in the river, should have looked at the big picture,and what doing so meant to the next 40 years.)
Damn the LBJ haters.

136. Once you have devoured all classes

 

you have learned a lot, there are no more classes, no class war, and you enjoy your peace.

Have fun fighting you class war, fearing and loathing people, gaming your blame games. We all die, and when you die, what have you left of all your possessions, your abstract pyramids of power? You are just food for maggots, turn into dust that trees feed on, and life goes on.

are you saying you wouldn't have jumped at the chance to drop a drone on Hitler two days before he took the first of 20Million people he killed?
I myself, being Jewish, do not know of anyone personally who would not have wanted that to happen.

If there were 100 collateral plus Hitler, 20 million lives would have been saved, as the 100 plus Hitler most assuredly died in the war anyhow.

Would you say otherwise?

If only there were drones back then
or one day prior to James Earl Ray or Oswald or SS or the asshole who got lennon, and they were dropped well out of range of any other collateral on those people, and yes, I would have welcomed the listening in on those people to stop them from the harm they did.

But one can't go back in time, and shouldn't.

One can only go forward.

absolutists are just as bad as extremists and anarchists
each situation warrants its own look
and not as one

184. very late response, but for the record.

I don't i know who orly taitz is but it doesn't matter.

the fact that you label anyone as a "conspiracy theorist" indicates a biased (i.e., warped) view of the world. that you think you can label a person as a person as a conspiracy theorist as your initial premise and win an argument based on that indicates an illogical mind at work.

the term conspiracy theorist has come to mean "loony" or "paranoid" and is often paired with "tin foil hat". this amounts to a blanket dismissal of people who distrust the official stories of world powers and of the u.s. gov't in particular. by definition, if you trust the u.s. gov't version of the facts you have a warped view of the world, because there are hundreds of examples of the u.s. gov't lying to us or keeping secrets from us on crucial questions.

many people, yourself included apparently, are skeptical of skeptics. 9/11 is the classic example: google "9/11 unanswered questions." pick any website and answer the multitude of legitimate unanswered questions. after you do that you can resume calling people conspiracy theorists. the skeptics have it right, you have it wrong.

185. Orly Taittz is the crazed birther lady

Reality, data, and facts to not sway her.

It is different to ask question than to provide made-up answers. One can ask "Why did WTC 7 fall in the way it did?" One may also proclaim, "I don't know why WTC 7 fell in the way it did, so therefore it is an inside government coverup."

Conspiracy theorists do the second. They often dismiss new data to protect the theory.

It is one thing to be inquisitive. It is another to fill in the gaps with untenable speculation and then defend it.

This is the right way:

you don't have to convince me that there are people out there who will believe or say anything and create conspiracies out of whole cloth.

but to use your own example, why has the gov't not answered the question? why were they so ready to close the books on that and so many other legitimate unanswered questions about such an earth-shaking incident? and why are so many people so dismissive of the people who have questioned the official story? and why are so many people, such as yourself, I believe, so willing to easily throw around the term "conspiracy theorist" as a general epithet, even though it clearly conflates crazy people with people with serious questions and doubts about the "official stories?" orly taitz is apparently a conspiracy nut, which is different from a conspiracy theorist or just a person with serious questions. "conspiracy theorist" is a term that denigrates people with serious questions. i urge you to be more specific in your terminology.

87. 9/11 was a conspiracy. They just disagree on whose.


Do you think that a conspiracy that involves fifty guys (in the US and overseas) isn't a conspiracy? There are a conspiracies that are true and those that are false. The false ones spring from people's fears. If a conspiracy can encompass fifty people, it can encompass a lot more, and they have in history.

What anonymous says about the justice system having been subverted (and they don't say from a conspiracy, they attribute a confluence of wealthy interests) is true. And woe to you if you ever find yourself in a prosecutor's cross hairs. Try to keep up your "we have to work within the system" attitude if that happens. And if you read what Anonymous wrote about enforcing Terms of Service as though they were criminal, it can happen to you unexpectedly. When was the last time you read a TOS?

Your thinking is all over the place with all kinds of irrelevancies, non sequiturs and fictions. At least Anonymous thinks clearly, can write it coherently, and have covered any minimally relevant angle you mention. In other words, the know they're saying.

134. ah, no it doesn't make sense logically

 

conspiracy was what the professional people from Texas' Tom DeLay did to stop the recount in Florida(illegally crossing state lines to interfere with a national election, something the mischief makers of the Chicago 7 were arrested for).

It was a fact, because, the perps BRAGGED ABOUT DOING SO ON THEIR FUTURE RESUMES.
And they were person by person id'd as if they wree on the John Walsh criminal show.

So, if those conspirators gladly bragged about it, as did those that in the Watergate bungle,took Nixon down

What in God's name makes you think that the thousands of people that would have had to set 9-11 up remained quiet now for 12 years? That one person did not speak with SOLID proof?

Makes ZERO cents.

Hell, after OBL was brought down(and not by a drone, because then conspiracy theorists would have said, where is the body), but old fashioned methods of an arrest type action,
some of the TOP SECRET members spoke out.

So how in hell could thousands(even if only hundreds) have remained silent on 9-11 all those years?

Sure, its easy to get caught up in conspiracy theories, but it too is like a cult.
You believe the person throwing breadcrumbs, voila, you come to the conclusion THAT PERSON throwing the breadcrumbs want you to be.

Soundbytes are meaningless when one thinks of Jerry Brown.
He doesn't whine, he probably is the 1%, but he has (without having to) given his entire life to public service to exact change and has done well in every single position he won.

He didn't lose and slink away. He stayed to fight another day.FROM WITHIN the system.

11. It is the Ralph Nader wing of course. Because, fools like Nader said both parties were the same

 

and 10 million voters did not vote in 2000.

leading to 2 wars by the Bush's who Ralph Nader worked for either knowingly or stupidly unaware(same way Ron Paul tried to claim he was not a racist while racists were his entire fan base in the old days, those John Birch Society racists ones).

Because of Ralph Nader's extremism, and being heavily financed by the republican party,
anyone who ever contributed to his campaign, voted for him is 100% directly responsible for anything that happened from that day forward.

So, which wing? The 3rd party wing that loves to this day 3rdparty and Naderites, Paulites
and any other 3rd party that does not directly back the democratic party.

That is who anger should be for- Ralph Nader.

18. A diversion from Presidential politics into local politics. But since you brought it up-

 

but then the teapartyrepubs sabatoged Charlie

Meeks should have told others to vote for Charlie, much like Nader should have.

Meeks was never picked to win, just picked because the Dems were not challenging Charlie.

I 100% support Charlie, who spit in Jeb Bush's face

As the SOP states here,
you back democratic canddiates, or those rare instances, where the democrat CANNOT AND WILLNOT win, back the one who can win and caucus with the democratic party

Charlie had said he would caucus with the democratic party and is now a democratic candidate in good standing.

But then Charlie was always liberal in social issues.

But of course, this is a diversion from Ralph Nader and Cornel West and other 3rd party Naderites and supporters of Presidential politics

You see, your logic on charlie is like those who drone on about drones killling collateral

Meeks would have lost one on one anyhow

Just like the collateral damage done by drones(the handful) would have died with 10,000 other people by their own countrymen in a man to man (or woman to woman) war.
So instead of 10 dying from a drone
10,000 others also would die PLUS the 10 collateral from a drone

In reality, 9,990 lives are saved as 10,000 others did not die.

Blame Ralph Nader. Because well, no, Bush and Gore would not have picked the court the same, and 9-11 wouldn't have happened had Al Gore been president.
And Al Gore wouldn't have been reading about ducks in a school building on 9-11 either.

because there was NO theft in 2000

before Ralph Nader entered the race

though it is convientient to fudge the time line and forget that Nov came before Dec 12, 2000.

Without Ralph Nader, there was no 9-11
without Ralph Nader, there was no 2 wars
without ralph Nader, no patriot act

but anyhoo, the patriot act has nothing wrong with it
long as Ralph Nader doesn't throw another race(and became $$$mega rich 1%er in the process) to the republicans

Don't like Bush? Don't vote for Jeb

staying home or voting 3rd party for a non-democratic candidate sure worked well for Nader and his cult groupies of Naderites in 2000,(or put in Ron Paul groupies, or Ross Perot groupies) didn't it?

I don't play gotcha games and obviously you don't have that defniition, so spit it out, what is your meaning?


I know choice point means something done, that has significant consequences later

(which would describe what Ralph Nader did in 2000, directly affecting consequences later on,
some of which were not transparent to the eye

It wasn't Nov so much as April,May,June,July, August,Sept.Oct.2000 and before

because Nader's lies about both parties kept voters home and not bothering.

Some might have come out and voted for him, but so many more just didn't bother

So, it seems that choice point or choicepoint directly IS Ralph Nader to a T.

As Ralph Nader was financed by republicans, therefore he either directly or indirectly threw the election same as any hanging chad might have. Only in mega numbers and nationwide,
not just a few.

113. Choice Point was a company that created a list of "felons" who

were not allowed to vote. I'm going from memory, don't have time to verify this just now.

The list was full of names of people who were not in fact felons. They were turned away from the polls. Most of them were from areas where Democratic votes predominated, so most of them presumably would have voted for Gore. There were, I think, tens of thousands of them, more than enough to overcome the 500 some lead that Bush had in the count that was used in the end.

You obviously read the title, skimmed the post (admittedly like I have been doing to your posts in this thread) and came to your own conclusions. You missed the parts where they are doing all this to bring back the rule of law. I know of no anarchist group who's demands are "Fair rule of law" If you disagree with anything they are demanding, you should probably leave this site.

They even admit that their actions disqualify them from being able to work within the system, they are taking out an insurance plan so others can work within the system and stand a chance. They are making sure than when one of theirs gets caught for doing something they don't get sentences that makes serial killers feel like they got off light.

Anon is fighting corruption, fighting corporations, and fighting in the name of fairness, they aren't out to take down one target after another until all are gone, they are trying to set things right, bring back justice in our society, and they are playing a lot more cleanly than their opposition is.

Threats lead to dangerous things

and again, if you burn something down, you sure as hell gotta have a plan for what the next day will be it's replacement.

you can't just say it will be better.
because then 9 out of 10 times it will be worse for a long time after, til it gets better.

It took 100 years from Lincoln to LBJ
it took 50 years from LBJ to Obama

it was 38 years out of 50 where things went bad
and people expect perfection in a mere 4 years since THE REVOLUTION WAS PEACEFULLY WON IN 2008.

Remember the movie (as V is fiction, let's keep it on entertainment fiction-
The Candidate.

remember the last line?

WHAT DO WE DO NOW?


well, before I want something torn down, I want to know what comes the Day After.
Because well, survivalists are what drives the NRA and vigilantes and guns and the survival of the fittest Lord of the Flies scenerios.

I myself prefer Order to Chaos.
or is it Control over Kaos?

Did anyone in Nazi Germany when they massed to the man in the hidden mask(though Hitler wore no mask, he masked his intentions if he even knew at that first moment what his plan was)
Did anyone ask
WHAT DO WE DO NOW, prior to voting him in?

whereas
President Obama HAS A PLAN
Dr. King HAD AN ENDGOAL IN HIS PLAN

this is flailing in the wind, making threats, but having NO idea of how to accomplish it, and it turns ugly, violent, and making threats to me is akin to anarchy and/or terrorism.
Sending in a list of demands reeks of a B movie film noir scenerio.

and in real life, in past times we have seen what the REAL Tim McCowards did in Oklahoma City solely based on paranoia conspiracy THEORIES when Janet Reno gave them all the time in the world, til they went and killed federal agents
(which is a no-no in any book at any time. You just don't do that and expect good to come out of it, no matter what).
Logic led to my conclusions on that, and it took a number of years, as I never heard of groups stockpiling guns to use to overthrow a government in bad contexts before.

The 1960s were now 50 years ago.
Even most protesters at that time, the leaders still around have almost all renounced violence as a way to do things.
Same as protesters today demand NO TORTURE, well, violence is torture and making threats
IS VIOLENCE
and it is all connected

You do not use the two wrongs make it right.
NO, two wrongs are two wrongs.

and as that side so uses the constititon, well, voting is the way of change
running for office is the way to change by winning

copping out and saying here you do it, but we demand this anyhow
WELL, if you legally can run, pull off the mask and run

Get a majority of the votes.
If you present a good POSITIVE case anyone can win.(but I am talking lower office, you work your way up, like 99% of the workers in America, you start at the bottom, and work your way up. YOU DO NOT START AT THE TOP.
This is America after all.
That is how it works.

pull off the masks, and run for office, if you don't like the job the people who did just that are doing.

But don't make threats and burn it down, without telling anyone what will be there the day after? I guarantee you, it will NOT be better.
Not for the 99.9% of the world, let alone America.

I'll repeat it for you: THEY. DON'T. WANT. TO. TEAR. IT. DOWN. They want to rebuild it to what it once was, to what we used to stand for, fairness, justice.

This isn't a movie, this is reality, where they are being threatened, and are responding the only way they have left, they took valuable information and said "You'll regret coming after us now."

Do you have any idea who they really are? if an example of them is Schwartz, then they are a whole bunch of brilliant folks who want to better the world and truly believe and act upon their ideals, instead of just rambling on and on on the internet like we are.

V was out for revenge, and he got it at any cost, Anon is out for justice, and they are trying to keep it civil, but they got pushed over the edge, they realized that their opponents aren't playing the same game, so they stopped playing along.

He is a criminal.
Criminals can do good things, but when they commit a crime, that makes them a criminal.

Under your example, Zimmerman is a hero.
While I am sure you don't mean it, Zimmerman is Anonymous

he was left off

it was not til he was looked into by Feds and the media, was it obvious he is guilty perhaps of first degree murder

but of course, he uses those same lines
Had the media not played it, had the feds not come in, he would have been a free man and is/was a hero to the gun people(or was a hero).

NO Zimmerman is not a hero. He is a criminal.

Crimes were committed

A person who had serious problems BEFORE becoming sort of famous, still had serious problems after becoming sort of famous
Fame does not undo those problems

and correlating A into D doesn't work.
B and C have nothing to do with A and D.

You cannot say he would have NOT killed himself anyhow, if you get rid of all the stuff in between A and D, the outcome would still in statistical probability be the same.
B and C did not cause his death.
His own PROBLEMS before were the cause.

same as take everyting out of the Zimmerman case
Zimmerman stalked an unarmed man, was told to back off (and in the time he was told by police to back off, that alone proves he was not stalked in mortal danger of his life) and went in and killed to watch this person die. Murder. Cold Blooded murder, because in advance he disobeyed an order, and knew what he was going to do and did it.
It wasn't the media or the Feds, or the fact that blacks went to the media, and blacks are in the Justice department that made it murder.
It was the murder that made it murder


and hacking the gov't because WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA I didn't get my way,
boy is that immature.
Sounds like a two year old having an argument by spilling his food
then whining that he is starving where is my meal?

you don't pamper adults.

You do the crime, you do the time.
And it was a few weeks NOT decades.

Zimmerman makes things so clear to see, when using Zim in other examples.

156. Woah, come back to us!

Where did Zimmerman come from? a clear cut case of cold blooded murder does not at all come close to the whole Anon thing. (btw, Zimmerman will face a lower sentence than Schartz was facing, which is the whole point right now) Guess what, you ever read the TOS in any piece of software? violating it could land you in jail for a looong time, and they are real easy to violate, you probably don't even realize you have, so you yourself are probably a felon just waiting to be popped.

It's like Monsanto having a patent on types of corn, but the way nature works, they just have to plant some nearby your corn field, and in a season or two you are growing their corn and are now a criminal and have to face the music.

See what I did there? made a weird, unrelated analogy, except instead of talking about Batman and Nader, I showed another real world example of normal people getting their lives ruined for small things, a punishment that way outstrips the crime.

You are saying that any criminal is as bad as a murderer, that the kid who steals bubblegum should face a jail sentence same as a murderer.

Anon hasn't killed anyone, they haven't hurt anyone. They have helped more people than will ever know, and they don't care about it. They are the dark knight you keep going on about, they fight the fights, they get dirty so we can stay clean, they do horrable things so others can do good things.

157. No, I am saying he had many problems, and would have done the same thing, statistically speaking

 

his death had nothing to do with anything else but he had PRIOR emotional problems.

Not getting the help FOR THOSE PROBLEMS (and it appears he could afford it, and there was help available) let to his death

all the rest is immaterial to that point.

those other things DID NOT cause his death
His problems caused his death. Which, statistically speaking, most likely would have happened anyhow, as he did not attempt to control his own problems.

the rest is immaterial and hyperbole and in actuality, the anon. guy is using the dead person as a prop. Did anyone in that family ask him prior to do that?Or did they after the fact just accept it to keep the name in the news? But that too is immaterial.

however, a gun and a bullet caused Mr. Martin's death.
if Zim was packing a pingpong ball, Mr. Martin would still be here.
That is correct cause and effect

BTW, this you didn't do as I asked, so I am threatening you logic, comes directly from the batman show.
The Joker on the batman tv show didn't like it, so he did things to avenge it.

whereas the Joker in the Dark Knight was a sick person, evil, deadly, violent anarchistic.
not for jokes this joker.REAL and deadly.
The difference between the Dark Knight and the TV Batman.

158. So you're an expert on Mr. Schwartz's mental state?

You know for sure that he would have done it had he not been hounded and threatened with 20+ years of jail time? this whole discussion is moot because you say so?

No, you are wrong. He may or may not have done it otherwise, but we will never know, because he did do it, and people do kill themselves when faced with unreasonable situations.

Has anon committed any violent crimes? have they hurt anybody? You are comparing them to a murderer, yet nothing they have done is even closely comparable to taking a human life.

Anon is Batman, You know Scarecrow in the third film? handing out death or exile sentences (which are the same thing in the end) thye are fighting against that. Aaron was facing such a choice, so he ended it before they could do it for him.

Zimmerman has a chance of getting away with what he did because of laws, Aaron had no way to get off, they had already convicted him before the trial started, they just decided to turn up the penalty to an unreasonable level because they can.

That is what Anon is fighting against, I think you'd be behind their ideology, Are you for the rule of law? fair trials and reasonable punishments? heabus corpus? Do you think the Gov should be allowed to imprison people with no trial?

What is this whole batman thing anyway, you really lost me on that, and I think you have it backward, because he works outside the law, like Anon does.

the whole point of the third Dark Knight was that.

anon is the Joker played by Heath Ledger who also should have gone for help

btw, where were the friends and parents when someone cries out for help?

like someone I used to argue with once said in the only thing I ever agreed with him on
"all his friends said he was a loner and had nobody knew him and he had no friends"

suicide is a preventable disease

10 million voters stayed home thanks to Ralph Nader

one can't blame courts and admire Ralph Nader
Because a democratic candidate would not have gotten everybody to stay home and not bother because they were the same and would not have given us Clarence Thomas, and the others.

Repeat, enough people voted for Al Gore to win the election. To say everybody stayed home is bullshit or deliberately ignoring the truth. AL GORE WON THE ELECTION! Enough people go out to vote so that Al Gore won the election over Bush and Nader.

But continue ignoring that because then you can enjoy your irrational hatred of Ralph Nader. By the way, a corrupt supreme court awarded the election to George Bush. That doesn't seem to bother you at all. Did I mention, Al Gore got enough votes to actually win the election?

173. 12/12/2000 was just a reaction to the actions/consequences of Nader many months PRIOR

 

Except that Al Gore would have won NH in Nov, and Florida would have not mattered at all

the four electoral votes in NH changed the outcome

270 would have been reached with NH

long before 12/12/2000

but it is convieniant to give nader a pass and blame everything but him.
He is the direct cause.

Do you think 10 million voters voting, would have all voted for George Bush?
Bush got every vote from every voter.

People don't like the court?
Why did people elect Reagan, Bush41 and why did only 59% of the public NOT vote for Bill Clinton in 1992?

actions/consequence

why did people not demand LBJ ran in 1968 after he retired?
Why did they not demand he come back after Bobby died?
The 1968 election spoke volumes, but mostly only seen in retrospect.
Every wrong move that could be made, was made in 1968.

Then the same thing happened in 1980.

Then terrible candidates in 1984 and 1988(though like HHH, they were really great guys, down to earth, smart, etc.)

actions/consequences

Florida was only a reaction to the actions/consequences that happened prior to 12/12/2000.

BTW, even if the supreme court ruled the other way, there was NO assurance the people in Florida would have sent Gore electors. No assurance whatsoever.
And even at that point had Gore been seated, he would not have had the power to do anything at all, and would have been reading about ducks or goats in a school room and had been a one term president, because he would not have been considered legit

THANKS TO RALPH NADER.

And Nader would then have said Gore/Bush were alike.

Yes, it is Ralph Nader's fault.
Florida was a reaction to earlier action/consequences of what Ralph Nader did.

Do you think politics became dirty in 2000?

Politics was always dirty.
But not that you want to hear it, never before have so many people NOT voted than in 2000.

And NH (though most would like to forget that) had the electoral votes that at 8pm eastern time in Nov.2000, would have put Gore over the top.
Except that it went to W, because of the mass amount of voters guess who got.

Meg Whitman had billions
Jerry Brown zero funds
Jerry creamed her but good
and almost won years ago with just a 1-800.

But don't like corporations being people? Well, guess what, that too is Ralph Nader's fault
As Al Gore wouldn't have put Alito and Roberts on the court, now would he?
And that law wouldn't have happened in the first place.

money is not bad
bad people with money are bad
good people with money are good
people of anytype using money for good is good

and I don't know of many people who will give up their money

Of course Douglass and Stowe weren't able to run. But they managed to bring about change anyway.

Of course MLK "could have" run. But he didn't, and he brought about change anyway.

The point is that these people proved that running for office is not the only way to bring about change. Are you intelligent enough to comprehend to that? Or, are you going to get all confused and change the subject again?

147. Fredrick Douglas did run for office

Douglass remained active in the United States' struggle to reach its potential as a "land of the free". Douglass actively supported women's suffrage. Without his approval, he became the first African American nominated for Vice President of the United States as the running mate of Victoria Woodhull on the impracticable and small Equal Rights Party ticket. Douglass held multiple public offices.....

In 1877, Douglass was appointed a United States Marshal. In 1881, he was appointed Recorder of Deeds for the District of Columbia.
In 1888, Douglass spoke at Claflin College, a black college in Orangeburg, South Carolina, and the oldest such institution in the state.
At the 1888 Republican National Convention, Douglass became the first African American to receive a vote for President of the United States in a major party's roll call vote.
He was appointed minister-resident and consul-general to the Republic of Haiti (1889–1891). In 1892, the Haitian government appointed Douglass as its commissioner to the Chicago World's Columbian Exposition. He spoke for Irish Home Rule and the efforts of leader Charles Stewart Parnell in Ireland. He briefly revisited Ireland in 1886.

76. A better comparison is Paul Kersey in Death Wish and Bernie Goetz real life

 

The movies and TV are fictional.

We may have rooted for Charles Bronson's CHARACTER in Death wish, HOWEVER, I was happy when Bernie Goetz was arrested for his attempted paranoia shootings of someone he thought might be wishing him harm. And Bronson was just acting a role. He was NOT a vigilante himself.

I would say the Dark Knight is a crime stopper. He is not a vigilante, nor an anarchist, nor a libertarian.
He is a fictional ideal like Superman (who really is for Truth, Justice and all of mankind, not just the American way, but was created by two American Jewish men and someone inserted the American way into the TV show I believe.)
But I myself would not want a real Dark Knight or Superman as they do not exist.

But a better example is
Democratic senator Paul Wellstone- who was a DEMOCRATIC PERSON from start to finish,
not third party, not independent, not libertarian.

and after Bush took office, they created a tv show and character BASED on Paul Wellstone the person, JED BARTLETT to give those who did not get a democratic president in office, but got George W. Bush instead(thanks Ralph Nader again), at least an hour a week reprieve of all things Bush.

However, JED BARTLETT was fictional.
and soon as President Obama won, West Wing went, as we didn't need a fictional candidate anymore, we got the real one.

And Martin Sheen played Jed Bartlett. Love Martin Sheen.
He is a liberal democratic person, who supported President Obama and the worker.
NOT an anarchist. Works from within not from without. Works FOR not against.

Think that is the difference
Working FOR a cause but not hurting others just to get change.

see separate post on Paul Wellstone and Al Gore and Ralph Nader.
It belongs in a new titled thread.

And Anonymous is not really after you, unless of course you are one of those arseholes who believe its their right to rob the poor, or their enablers who are delusional enough to think they might get super rich one day and start robing the poor too.

182. Frank Miller, author of Dark Knight, is very right wing and pro Bush, many consider his work post

9-11 to be racist in nature, the film industry is not going to reward that sort of point of view because they are not racists, nor right wingers. Here is Miller defending Bush, saying he should have been more war oriented, and claiming that those who dislike GW Bush are 'completely mad'. Do you agree with Miller on these things as well?

"Where I would fault President Bush the most, was that in the wake of 9/11, he motivated our military, but he didn't call the nation into a state of war. He didn't explain that this would take a communal effort against a common foe. So we've been kind of fighting a war on the side, and sitting off like a bunch of Romans complaining about it. Also, I think that George Bush has an uncanny knack of being someone people hate. I thought Clinton inspired more hatred than any President I had ever seen, but I've never seen anything like Bush-hatred. It's completely mad."

Here is his support for the Iraq War:
"Mostly I hear people say, "Why did we attack Iraq?", for instance Well, we're taking on an idea. Nobody questions why after Pearl Harbor we attacked Nazi Germany. It was because we were taking on a form of global fascism, we're doing the same thing now."

86. You fell for it as a nation

 

and fell badly:

“Naturally the common people don’t want war. But after all, it is the
leaders of a country who determine the policy, and it’s always a
simple matter to drag people along whether it is a democracy or a
fascist dictatorship, or a parliament, or a communist dictatorship.
Voice or no voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of
the leaders. This is easy. All you have to do is tell them they are
being attacked, and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and
for exposing the country to danger. It works the same in every
country.”
--- Hermann Goering, Hitler’s Reich Marshall, at the Nuremberg


The media is still mostly controlled by corporate thuggery and sensationalism and big money interests, and people sort of know that. Only cure is to keep on talking p2p, remembering and staying aware. Also of the reasonable suspicion that there are paid pens in many places, including DU, spreading their talking points in the interests of those who believe they benefit from lying to people, not from truth.

The hackers and crackers with the know how to pull of big collective operations like this know how to encrypt and have discussions and make collective decisions without leaving traces. It's not difficult.

And as network and discussion forum it works and self-organizes as anarchy. Someone takes initiative, others are free to join or stay out, those who decide to join plan and self-organize for the project and execute it as they see fit.

It's very simple. Nothing guarantees that anonymous won't go off the tracks. It's open "trade mark" of any guy, anything, anywhere, any when. Which means NOBODY, I repeat NOBODY, has control to keep Anonymous anybody off the tracks. And that's the whole fucking point: We don't have to stay off the tracks for ever. We can self-correct and find our way. Together.

You've made up your mind that there got to be something sinister e.g. about the Bank files, instead of considering it possible that the explanation of events that is well known to you may be true and no other explanation is needed. Or if there's something else behind the scenes, of which we don't know nothing, it's necessarily something sinister and not e.g. about protecting individuals from harm. Lot of good deeds go unnoticed and stay hidden from public, for good reasons. Prejudice is suspecting and claiming malicious intentions and practices without any evidence to back them up. You are befuddled by your own prejudice of claiming guilty without proof, not by others sticking to sound and common sense principle of innocent until proven otherwise.

Real, breathing, hurting human beings. Like Aaron, who was killed in the name of abstract intellectual property rights. Persecuted for "crime" without a victim.

It's all just in your head, abstract ideas going around in short circuit in your upper cortex without connecting to anything real. Flesh and blood, real human bodies, real human emotions, real human suffering, real human compassion.

from attaching human emotions to banks, as if taking them down could be sinister.

They are abstract constructs that we have built, and in some - very limited and totally abstact sense - they have become extremely powerful and hurting us bad.

What makes us humans is not just our ability to learn, all animals can do that, but our ability to learn away and deconstruct what we have constructed, so we can keep on learning. And living.

And that's what this is about, taking down abstract power structures. That's one aspect of the process. Others plant trees and tend gardens, others heal and nurture, others do other things. But best part of it, it's not under control. No matter how hard some people may try to control all and everything, they can never succeed. Because control is just abstract idea.

66. It's the U.S. Sentencing Commission, not the Supreme Court

Anonymous is protesting sentencing guidelines that allow the system to use the threat of disproportionate sentencing so that the "justice" system can prosecute selectively, which means pretty much that they can put anyone in jail for anything. Thus the system can make an example of someone like Aaron Swartz: Try to stop the march of injustice (as Aaron did with his activism against SOPA) and we'll use the "justice" system to make your life miserable.

I don't know whether to love these guys or fear them. What they are saying needs to be said. Hacking into high-level government websites is like standing on a rooftop shouting their message. But who are they really? Government infiltrates all protest movements, even if that means professing exactly what they (government) work against. Could be an effective way of finding dissidents. I'm not saying Anonymous is that -- I'm saying they *could* be and I don't know any way to know if they are.

In Russia, in Spain, in China, in Cambodia. It didn't seem to work out very well. Does it occur to you that people might be more cautious because of that? Revolution doesn't seem to go well in the modern world, the Arab spring notwithstanding, there's no guarantee that they're going to end up with governments better than what they had.

You had the Occupy movement, who got themselves beaten up and robbed by the police.

You have intelligence services that are infiltrating everything and everybody, and the government has this law on the books that allows them to make you disappear if you're too much trouble.

Therefore, it's not going to be as thrilling as watching Batman, I'm sorry to say, but I don't know how many options are left. This system isn't going to get better without some type of pressure. We're seeing now that even gun reform might stall.

The one thing that's encouraging to me is Anonymous says that they can't be part of the solution. They could pressure for it, but progressives are going to have to step up and press for the solutions. I don't know of another group of agitators who don't have in mind taking leadership. Aside from anarchist, which wouldn't call for any such thing. That's refreshing.

138. Aside from anarchist

 

And why would anarchist not call for any such thing? Think about it, internalizing and taking that attitude for real life philosophy, seriously and consciously and with conviction:

- No, I don't have all the answers.
- No, I can't force others to think and believe like I do, nor should I try to.
- No, I'm not in control, nor trying to control.

But:
- I'm human being just like you, with empathy. When you hurt, I hurt too. And I don't want to hurt, but help you not to hurt so I don't hurt.
- I have my experiences and opinions about the reasons why we hurt. So, with my heart and mind and all of my being I will do the best I can to address the causes why we hurt, and make the pain go away.
- I know I can't do anything alone, just by myself, to remove the causes of our mutual pain. I can do just my own little bit, according to what I believe and what I can do or stop doing.
- I share my point of view and opinions about necessity of state and such blah blah, if anyone wants to listen, but I can't force them, and I listen to others and learn from them what I can learn.
- Those who see things differently or for other reasons work inside or through the system, they are not my enemies. They are fellow human beings. If they hurt, I hurt too. I don't want to hurt them so that I don't hurt.
- When the moment comes to refuse and resist, and fight back to tear down or change abstract structures that hurt us all, I do so to the best of my limited abilities. Others, who are like me and don't want to keep on hurting, will do their bit according to their believes and capabilities.
- I can take initiative, as free human being, with full responsibility for my actions, considering all as carefully and intelligently as I can. I don't take initiative to force others, but to open space and possibilities for also others to act (or inact) according to their convictions and conscience. Hopefully for common good, in spirit of mutual aid, and less hurtful and more caring society as whole.

That's the "anarchist" logic I imagine behind the statement. Sounds logical and anarchist at least to me. Thanks for reading so far, if you did, friend.

If this is not an attempt to impose a rule of fear, I don't know what is.
The "mandatory minimums" were made on the same model.
When are American jurists going to be allowed to think for themselves?

and taking down computer systems, in the age of corporate personhood, because of the
Ralph Nader siding with Bush to bring Roberts and Alito into the court with his lies of both being the same (yeah, tell me Gore would have picked Roberts and Alito)...

well if corporations are people now, then computer systems=people too.
Making McVeigh and taking down computers one and the same corrolated out.

this is NOT changing the system from within.

this is blowing up the entire system.

Without computers these days, does one realize that 99.99% of ALL PEOPLE worldwide lose out?
How would people who's banks now have paperless invoices and internet only(no more bankbooks folks) know how much money they would have?
These are regular people the 99% professed to be the one they are thinking of.

Panic would ensue. Panic leads to death, NOT to a new system.

But then, to find something compatable,
I doubt children ever think past what happens to their meal, when they throw their plate of food on the ground and whine and whine and pout and cry.
After all, mommy and daddy will just give them more.
(i.e. if the system is gone, there is NO more.)

(as an example no snark implied or meant).

153. They threatened no one's life

and never have. They aren't fomenting revolution, they are pushing for the rule of law. They want the unconstitutional laws of the past decade to be struck down, and they want little things like fair trials, and juries to be the norm.

If you have anything wrong with the things they want, this is not the website for you. Take umbrige with their methods, even they think they went too far, but their ideals are what we all believe in too.

168. Actions speak louder than words

In one ear, Anonymous is telling me that transparency and access to information is paramount to a free democracy.

In the other ear, Anonymous is telling me such information is being held in escrow.

MAKE UP YOUR FUCKING MINDS!

If you're about people having access to information, RELEASE IT!

If you're about power and keeping information from us...like the governments, corporations and people you deride...YOU'RE NO DIFFERENT!

STOP YANKING OUR CHAINS!

(I saw this message on Reddit and agree with the sentiments.)

180. Our Justice Department isn't about Justice

or the Supreme Court

we have prisons filled to the brim and the death sentence of which over a thousand have been killed

Wall street banksters still run amok and not prosecuted
the lies to the American people and Congress about weapons of Mass Destruction
have not been convicted

torture was used on prisoners
no justice



but then when others expose the shadow government lies ...they are thrown in prison for life

and pedophiles escape conviction....

is this a Just system? No

when the Justice system is corrupt then the country will fall too ruin do to corruption

181. After the filibuster failure, I trust Anonymous and Occupy more than the government.

Wall St doesn't own them like they do the government.
