Homeland Security Suddenly Likes My Blog?


Welcome friends. And by that, I mean a hearty welcome to my new friends from the Department of Homeland Security. I noticed 2 hits on my analytics on Friday, 3 days ago, from Springfield, VA. I have been watching for hits from this area ever since I wrote this blog post after the April Tea Parties. Now why did they decide to search my blog twice on Friday. Did it have anything to do with the new SNITCH report email service set up at flag@whitehouse.gov? I did not report myself last week, as a number of bloggers have done. Did someone report me for publishing FISHY stories about proposed GOVERNMENT health care? Is there a DHS dossier on this blog? Or is it kept at the white house? In what way does my exercise of my first amendment right to free speech regarding HEALTH CARE create a threat to our HOMELAND????

American Thinker has this to say regarding the new snitch service:

The Obama administration has made a terrible mistake.

On Tuesday, August 4, the White House posted a blog entry enjoining Americans to spy on one another, and to report any "disinformation" which might undermine the administration's health-care reform:

"There is a lot of disinformation about health insurance reform out there. Since we can't keep track of all of them here at the White House, we're asking for your help. If you get an email or see something on the web about health insurance reform that seems fishy, send it to flag@whitehouse.gov."

How can an American president think to embrace such open Orwellian thuggishness? The answer is a noxious combination of (1) liberal moral obtuseness, and (2) the naked lust for power which has characterized the political left since Robespierre. (The political designation sinistra in fact originates with the French Revolution: Jacobins sat to the left of president's chair in the Third Estate.)

For liberals, the morally correct stance on every issue is by definition the liberal one. It is a moral imperative that everyone have health insurance, consequences be damned. To cite possible negative repercussions of liberal policies is to reveal yourself to be ethically and intellectually degenerate. Just look at what liberal pundits and politicians are saying about anti-Obamacare protesters: Paul Krugman vilifies them as racists; to Nancy Pelosi, they are literally Nazis.

Got that, America? If you're against government-run health care, you're not just a Nazi, you're a racist Nazi. Liberals cannot help but think in such terms; their views to them are so enlightened that to oppose them is to automatically render one unfit for discourse...and unworthy of respect. The irony, lost on Pelosi et al, is that, if there had been a few more freedom-loving citizens in 1930's Germany protesting government take over of industry, there may never have been a Nazi regime.

Then there is the left's all-consuming thirst for power. It animates the tactics of ACORN and Union head busters; the methods advocated in Saul Alinsky's community-organizing manifesto Rules for Radicals. It gave rise to the notoriously corrupt political culture of the Chicago machine, in which fetid waters Obama bathed and came to political maturity.

The White House wants to be appraised of "fishy" things? Very well. Let us appraise them. Let us send them every study by every reputable research institute - Heritage, CATO, AEI, Galen, Pacific Research - which uses solid economic and historical data to argue against Obamacare; send them every op-ed or article written by any respected economist, author, or pundit (and they are legion) who makes a solid case against further government intrusion into health care.

But if they really want fishy, send them this report from the non-partisan Congressional Budget Office, which gives the lie to the president's assertion that his reform measures will reduce costs. Instead, according the CBO, Obama's proposals would produce economically suicidal deficits as far as the eye can see.

The White House's blog may be illegal - some experts claim it is a clear violation of the Privacy Act of 1974, which places strict legal limits on how and why federal agencies can collect and maintain data on private citizens (instituted - rightfully so - after Nixon's abuses). Whether or not it is illegal, it is certainly repugnant for the president to ask us to spy on his political opponents for him.

Really, what country does he think this is?

Chup, yes. The white house didn't open its snitch line in order to play tiddlywinks. There is a purpose behind it. We shall see what that is.

A year ago I wouldnt have believed
this kind of stuff would be
happening.

RRR said...

Yeah, I get that too Opus... the shame is of course you don't hear about any Al Qaida cells getting popped lately, do you?

I have been getting those hits since Big Sis took over at DHS, and started painting all Obama opposition with a broad brush. Did you ever notice how liars don't trust others? They think everybody else is a POS like they are... this goes for Obama's warnings or "radicals" and "domestic terrorists"- while he employs Chicago methods and ACORN street muscle. Now has now taken to labeling senior citizens horrified by Obamacare as paid-shills... while he trucks in AFL-CIO palookas to crack heads.... what a hypocrite, this guy.

I also get CIA every month and for some reason the State Department from various ISPs ... plus a few hits from Capital Hill, but due to key words used I'd say they were Republicans.

Keep up the Good Fight, Ma'am... and let em read our righty blogs all they want... maybe they'll learn something!

Trailer Trash Bill Warner Has Enlisted in the White House Internet Snitch Brigade

Ever since the White House announced the creation of its Internet Snitch Brigade (flag@whitehouse.gov), Americans were waiting for Insane P.I. Bill Warner to join it. And today it finally happened! In "ASSASSINATE BARACK OBAMA PLOTS INCREASE TO 10 RACIST RIGHT WING BLOGGERS FUEL WHITE SUPREMISTS (sic.) SECRET SERVICE SHUT EM DOWN by Bill Warner investigator," Warner writes:

"The US Secret Service so needs to investigate "Muslims Against Sharia by Khalim Massoud and Pamela Geller for her Anti-American racist activities on her website, which she operates out of her Manhattan NY apartment, and her incitement to hate by others and the possible murder of President Barack Obama.

Contact flag@whitehouse.gov and provide information for websites that promote hate and or attacks against the President of the United States Barack Obama.U.S.
Secret Service
New York City Office
335 Adams Street
32nd Floor
Brooklyn, NY 11201
Telephone: (718) 840-1000"

After pretending to file various lawsuits and complaints with the FBI, USSS, County Court, etc. Insane P.I. Bill Warner decided to employ another tactic. He wants the Internet Snitch Brigade to do his dirty work, to defame people who dare to disagree with Warner's demented rants. Could this trailer trash be more of a Nazi?

Wow... that was quick. Usually the government doesn't work that fast.

But don't worry, I'm sure most of us are in the same boat. I have a few "fishy" and "misleading" posts about health care in my blog too.

How did you see who visits your blog? I'd be interested to see if I have new friends too - maybe we can all have a tea party!

"I only want to see your papers"
Hmm, where did that come from?

Opus #6 said...

Cocked and Loaded, To see behavior like this coming from the white house is saddening.

Opus #6 said...

RRR, I like your attitude. I think a number of our government hits are from conservatives looking for moral support. We must not fail or lose heart.

Opus #6 said...

Muslims against Sharia, thanks for the comment. I imagine they are scheming for ways to shut us down. Pesky bloggers.

Opus #6 said...

Hazaa, sign up first with Google Analytics. They already know you because you have a Google account for your blogger blog.

Opus #6 said...

Lady Di, Two can play at that game.

Clifton B said...

Opus#6, wow that is VERY interesting. I keep a close eye on my Sitemeter and although I have regular visits from the House, Senate, Pentagon and the DNC, no one has visited me from Homeland Security yet.

I am going to keep an eye open for it.

Opus #6 said...

Clifton B, it's only a matter of time.

Teresa said...

Holy Crap!! I say lets flood the White House website with all the articles from the reputable sites that you mentioned. We will send them all the fishy information about Obamacare. Obama's blog is illegal. He must be impeached!!! Obama and his thugs are outrageous.

Just a conservative girl said...

I have gotten a lot more left leaning people commenting on my blog in the past week myself. Of course, I did "turn myself in". I also was playing around the other day and noticed that someone put my blog on CNN-ireport. So that may be part of the reason.
btw - yes that is me with Newt. It was very exciting to me him. I am going to meet and greet with the next governor of VA on Friday.
I need to figure out how to look at my readers as well.

Barking Spider said...

Hi, Opie:

It didn't take them long to get Obastard's Stasi up and running.

Opus #6 said...

Teresa, thank you. Outrage is the correct response.

Opus #6 said...

Jacg, I am following Clifton's advice and signing up with sitemeter. Hopefully that won't crash my site like getclicky did.

Opus #6 said...

Spidie, there is a heavy money connection between the SEIU union and the dems. They both owe each other big time. So it goes to follow that Obama would call on them for muscle.

Amusing Bunni said...

Hi Opie! I have to check into that google analytics as well, I'm sure they are tarketing ALL of us. I didn't turn myself in either, why help them out....but I'm sure the psycho trolls have been VERY busy lately.

Keep posting the TRUTH! I agree with RRR also....they assuse us of ALL their horrid tactics. SHAME on them. I'm going to cry for our Country now!. God Bless and thx for visiting my chnl

Has anyone thought to report the White house blog for the "fishy" idea of this snitch service?
