Before you read this post, I am here to relate what happened to me at my dashboard trying to post it. I kept getting 404’s. But the snarkiest proof of filtering/censoring IMHO was when I went to investigate it, I saw in my history two links that were not somewhere I went for this post. Open Social. Google. This has happened to me once before on a particularly inflammatory post.This time it happened when visiting ‘Sipsey Street Irregulars’ Hotspots.com. This tells me they are being filtered and it spams the powers that be to anyone linking there. When I click on the link, I get NOTHING but blank. THEN it disappears from my history. Things that make you go hmmm. Check out this link and comment what happens to you: Fast and Furious and OCDETF,Whom is executive privilege protecting? It continously goes to Open Google. I find this highly suspicious.
Open Source Back Doors:
Computer security specialists have been aware for two years that unusual features are contained inside a standard Windows software “driver” used for security and encryption functions. The driver, called ADVAPI.DLL,………snip”
Now that’s old news of course. But is it relevant? Think about it…with the way world politics are moving, digital rights arguments all over the place, security threats across the globe – it’s not far a leap to make. Could the world’s governments actually have access to anyone’s computers? In theory – yes. Especially if there are “special back doors” created by the software makers that allow them just that.
Facebook; Google and more…

When U.S. Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry was murdered in December of 2010 while investigating illegal gun and drug smuggling that turned out to be part of the Obama Administration scandal known as Fast and Furious, all records concerning the murder were sealed by the courts.
But in a bombshell revelation made by author and reporter Katie Pavlich on C-SPAN2’s Book TV series Sunday evening, Pavlich told National Journal reporter Major Garrett that all of the evidence suggests that the reason the records are sealed is to prevent the public from finding out highly embarrassing information about the Obama Administration.
That information is that Agent Terry was more than likely murdered by paid FBI informants working with Mexican drug cartels and that the gun they used to kill him was a Fast and Furious weapon the Obama Administration had deliberately placed in their hands.
Very little information has been provided to the press or to the public concerning evidence retrieved at the crime scene, except for the fact that at least two guns were recovered. But government whistleblowers working for the ATF, ICE, and the FBI have reported that a third gun was recovered at the scene but was never sent to the forensics lab for analysis.
That gun somehow mysteriously disappeared.
The agents who saw the gun and who are familiar with the Fast and Furious operation are adamant that it was part of the illegal scheme to send U.S. guns to Mexican drug cartels.
A secretly taped conversation between an ATF agent and a gun dealer, which was submitted into evidence and broadcast on CBS News, shows that there was a third gun despite vehement denials early on by administration officials.
Thus, overwhelming factual evidence already has been established that the third gun was present at the scene and removed, thus preventing it from being analyzed by forensics, and that the Mexican criminals that ATF agents had in their sights for gun and drug trafficking turned out to be paid FBI informants.
* Part of the motivation for Barack Obama’s assertion of executive privilege in withholding subpoenaed documents from the Issa Committee in Congress may be intended further to prevent the disclosure of the embarrassing facts surrounding Agent Terry’s death, which of itself suggests much more extensive White House involvement in the scheme than previously disclosed.
But reporter Mike Vanderboegh, who first broke the Fast and Furious story in December of 2010, suggested Sunday that at least two other reasons account for Obama’s declaration of executive privilege.
* The first reason is that the White House wishes to protect its primary source of information about the scandal, former National Security Council member Kevin O’Reilly who was briefed regularly about the operation by the Special Agent in Charge of the Phoenix Field Division of the ATF, Bill Newell. O’Reilly has been prevented thus far from providing testimony to Congress by deploying him to Iraq on a special mission out of the State Department by his boss, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.
* The second reason for Obama’s assertion of executive privilege is a factor that so far very few have discussed. As an operation involving drug smuggling and gun trafficking, Fast and Furious was part of the internal Justice Department division known to insiders as “Organized Crime Drug Enforcement Task Force” (OCDETF). The division is so important within the Justice Department that all of its operations must be overseen and approved directly by the Attorney General, with overall oversight provided by the President of the United States.
Andrew McCarthy of National Review provides an in depth report on the manner in which OCDETF operates, the relevant point being that the administration’s claim that the Fast and Furious scandal was a botched sting operation of local field agents out of the Phoenix office is completely ludicrous when viewed within the context of the OCDETF.
These operations are invariably conducted by what is known as “main Justice” in Washington at the highest levels of government.
Thus, there is no way in which Fast and Furious could have been conceived, planned, and implemented without the expressed knowledge and approval of the Attorney General in consultation with the President of the United States.
~ Let me repeat: Thus, there is no way in which Fast and Furious could have been conceived, planned, and implemented without the expressed knowledge and approval of the Attorney General in consultation with the President of the United States.
And that explains Obama’s assertion of executive privilege.
