Imagine that every time you printed a document, it automatically included a secret code that could be used to identify the printer – and potentially, the person who used it. Sounds like something from an episode of “Alias,” right?

Unfortunately, the scenario isn’t fictional. In a purported effort to identify counterfeiters, the US government has succeeded in persuading some color laser printer manufacturers to encode each page with identifying information. That means that without your knowledge or consent, an act you assume is private could become public. A communication tool you’re using in everyday life could become a tool for government surveillance. And what’s worse, there are no laws to prevent abuse.

The ACLU recently issued a report revealing that the FBI has amassed more than 1,100 pages of documents on the organization since 2001, as well as documents concerning other non-violent groups, including Greenpeace and United for Peace and Justice. In the current political climate, it’s not hard to imagine the government using the ability to determine who may have printed what document for purposes other than identifying counterfeiters.

Yet there are no laws to stop the Secret Service from using printer codes to secretly trace the origin of non-currency documents; only the privacy policy of your printer manufacturer currently protects you (if indeed such a policy exists). And no law regulates what sort of documents the Secret Service or any other domestic or foreign government agency is permitted to request for identification, not to mention how such a forensics tool could be developed and implemented in printers in the first place.

With no laws on the books, there’s nothing to stop the privacy violations this technology enables. For this reason, EFF is gathering information about what printers are revealing and how – a necessary precursor to any legal challenge or new legislation to protect your privacy. And we could use your help.

In the preliminary research paper linked below, we explain what we’ve observed so far, briefly explore the privacy implications, and ask you to print and send us test sheets from your color laser printer and/or a color laser printer at your local print shop. That way, we can watch the watchers and ensure that your privacy isn’t compromised in ways that harm your fundamental consitutional rights.

In addition to documenting what printers are revealing, EFF has filed a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request, and we will keep you updated on what we discover. In the meantime, we urge you to participate and pass the word along about this research project. Thank you for your support!

If this bill is passed, and becomes law, your words and actions could be considered terrorism. S 1959 EVISCERATES FREE SPEECH, and empowers the govt. to declare ANYTHING they deem an “extremist belief system”, instantly making you a terrorist, resulting in stripping of US citizenship, torture, and/or execution, with no habeas corpus rights, no ability to challenge even in the US Supreme Court.

By: Sorcha Faal, and as reported to her Western Subscribers

Russian Military Analysts are reporting today that President Putin has ordered Russia’s strategic nuclear arsenal to ‘high alert’ over growing concerns of massive US military troop movements from North America towards the Middle East.

This latest war move by Putin mirrors his actions of previous weeks where he ordered Russian Military to move towards Eastern Europe, and as we had reported on in our November 9th report, “Putin Orders Troops To Border, War Crimes Trials For US Leaders“.

Britain’s Times Online News Service has, likewise, reported on Russia’s latest move against the West by quoting Putin, and who stated:

“In violation of previous agreements, certain member countries of the NATO alliance are increasing their resources next to our borders. Russia cannot remain indifferent to this obvious muscle-flexing. One of the most important tasks remains raising the combat readiness of the strategic nuclear forces. They should be ready to deliver a quick and adequate reply to any aggressor.”

Putin further warned the West that Russia would withdrawal from the landmark Conventional Forces in Europe (CFE) treaty on December 12th, to which the United States Military responded to by cancelling its planned drawdown of its Forces in Europe.

China has also moved against the United States Military by denying US Warships access to its ports, as reported by the Reuters News Service, and as we can read: Read the rest of this entry »

Editorial Comment: Correct us if we are wrong, but aren’t the these the only two uses, by a countries military against civilian populations, of nuclear weapons in the written history of this planet?

Guess we’re up to three now.

This is ENDGAME in real life, right before your eyes. The horrible fact is The Powers That Be (at the moment) are working rather effectively in Africa and the Middle East to realize their plan of depopulating the “useless eaters” (their term, not ours) on the planet by BILLIONS.

It is getting more and more clear that our President, Dr. Ron Paul may literally be a life or death choice for BILLIONS of souls on this planet!

To each of you who knows or loves someone exposed in recent years or in the middle east right now, on their way to or from, Our most sincere and compassionate prayers are with you and yours as we hope your prayers are with us and ours. May all our children be happy and healthy, may they grow to be big and strong in spirit like their parents.

Father, in the Name of the Christ (or religious figure of choice) we pray, in full faith and submission to your will. Alone we are weak but when we are One we have all power.

By firing radioactive ammunition, the U.S., U.K., and Israel may have triggered a nuclear holocaust in the Middle East that, over time, will prove deadlier than the U.S. atomic bombing of Japan.
 
So much ammunition containing depleted uranium(DU) has been fired, asserts nuclear authority Leuren Moret, “The genetic future of the Iraqi people for the most part, is destroyed.”
 
“More than ten times the amount of radiation released during atmospheric testing (of nuclear bombs) has been released from depleted uranium weaponry since 1991,” Moret writes, including radioactive ammunition fired by Israeli troops in Palestine.
 
Moret is an independent U.S. scientist formerly employed for five years at the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory and also at the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory, both of California.
 
Adds Arthur Bernklau, of Veterans For Constitutional Law, “The long-term effect of DU is a virtual death sentence. Iraq is a toxic wasteland. Anyone who is there stands a good chance of coming down with cancer and leukemia. In Iraq, the birth rate of mutations is totally out of control.” Read the rest of this entry »

A Plea for Ed & Elaine Brown

November 22, 2007

Today I received a handwritten letter from Ed Brown. (For those of you who still don’t know who the Browns are) here is a link to their myspace site:

Ed & Elaine Brown: http://www.msplinks.com/MDFodHRwOi8vcHJvZmlsZS5teXNwYWNlLmNvbS9pbmRleC5jZm0/ZnVzZWFjdGlvbj11c2VyLnZpZXdwcm9maWxlJmZyaWVuZGlkPTI2MTA5NTMxNA==

Ed’s letter was hand-written in a seemingly desperate scrawl, on lined notebook paper, its tone one of sadness, and yet much hope. Ed personally requested that I attempt to continue to promote awareness of his and Elaine’s situation, and so, with only minor personal ommissions, here is his letter in full.
Please, please, pray for this dear couple. They are true Christian patriots and are fighting a fight few of us dare to take on for ourselves.

Please encourage them by writing to Ed & Elaine. If you are able, send them pictures (see letter and addresses below). If any of you have ever been kept away from loved ones, you understand how hard this must be for both of them. They need our encouragement, prayers, and if possible, financial assistance now more than ever. Let us not forget these courageous people.

—————————————————————-

Dear _______

Please! Keep us in your prayers. The picture is the first. Thank you thank you thank you. I need pictures badly. I have nothing and my heart is breaking. We [Ed & Elaine] have never been apart this long before and I am really concerned for her.

They hurt me permanently. The damage will be with me for the rest of my life. Read the rest of this entry »

If there was ever a time for a false flag op, the Thanksgiving weekend would be perfect.

They are already preparing the political side of the attack – that Ron Paul supporters and Truthers will be the source of the “next McVeigh” as the ritalin-popping shill Glenn Beck once said.

It’s the time before and after the actual day to worry about. Hit the country on THE day when people are where they want to be and with their families where the mind and spirit are stronger and it won’t have the effect. Hit them when in transit, strand them on roads and airports, and the fear factor – and clamoring for someone to do something/anything – will be much higher. By the time people can get home and to their computers to find out what is going on, all dissenters would be dead or locked up.

They might even claim all that “gunfire on the horizon” are Al Queda cells that came out of the woodwork and are being put down. Of course there is no AL Queda and the people being put down will be those who are resisting the tyranny of what would be phase 2 of the enslavement process.

Take these warning seriously.

Editors note: We neither endorse nor condemn the technology of reversed speech. This info is presented for your consideration.  To hear the sound clips go to http://www.ken-welch.com

In last week’s report Iran Invasion Recycled, reversed speech from Washington confirmed that a false flag nuclear attack somewhere in America was planned, and that the operation was underway. Only the time and place remained in doubt. Because the controllers behind the present administration had only sixty days to implement the plan, which has always been called GAMBIT, I pointed out that they would probably be forced to simply recycle the same attack plan they’ve tried before. This would place the target at the Port of Texas City, an oil terminal a short distance south of Houston, Texas.

We also discussed the fact that previous plans have attempted to choose dates that promote the concept of religious war, a propaganda tool that can be valuable for years to come. (Two of the previous attempts were centered on Easter for their faked Muslim atrocity.) I pointed out that the Thanksgiving holiday would make a good stand-in for this role, considering the intense pressure that Washington is under to complete this strategy as fast as possible.

Both of these suspicions regarding the time and place of the attack seem to be confirmed by the latest speech reversals we’ve gathered from Washington.

The false-flag attack is to be the trigger for the invasion of Iran, a goal that is now almost two years behind schedule. In addition, the invasion is to be the cover for the use of at least one false-flag nuke to wipe out resistance elements in Iraq’s Anbar Province and thus save the Iraq mission before it fails completely.

The Ron Paul Zogby Poll: Simplified
LRC: When All Groups Are Polled, Ron Paul Wins

Chris Brunner / LRC Blog | November 20, 2007

COMMENT: Setting aside the interesting data that shows Ron Paul marginalizes no one, LRC makes clear a strong point: When All Groups Are Polled, Ron Paul Wins. Ron Paul is doing well, and he stands to do even better by bounds (as his recognition grows).

See demographic analysis here, comments from Zogby pollster Fritz Wenzel here, and the Zogby poll itself here.

LRC:

Zogby released the results of its latest telephone survey today which is known as a “blind bio” poll because likely voters are given details of the candidates’ resumes without their names attached. Among Republicans, Dr. Paul came in 3rd, with 13%. However, when Democrats and Independents were included in the group surveyed, Dr. Paul won with 33%.

Thanks to Pieter Friedrich for pointing this out.
