I’ve Been to the Mountaintop

“All we say to America is, ‘Be true to what you said on paper.’  

If I lived in China or even Russia, or any totalitarian country, maybe I could understand the denial of certain basic 1st Amendment privileges, because they hadn’t committed themselves to that over there.

But somewhere I read of the Freedom of Assembly.  Somewhere I read of the Freedom of Speech.

Somewhere I read of the Freedom of the Press.  Somewhere I read that the greatness of America is the Right to Protest – for Right.

Mine eyes have seen the glory of the coming of the Lord!!

An Open Letter to Google/YouTube

August 4, 2017

(Attn: legal@support.youtube.com)

Censored, Blocked, and Banned: An Open Letter to Google/YouTube
(Censorship: Google Bans and First Draft Coalition[s])

My account, (Verified Channel) WindHarps (which has been online since September of 2007), is in Good Standing (0 copyright strikes/0 Community Guidelines strikes).  Moreover, the entire channel and all uploaded videos reflect dedication, inspiration, and devotion to God, Jesus Christ, and the Holy Spirit.  Yet, it is essentially Blocked, overall. For instance, my most recent/Featured video (I’ve Been) Searchin’ So Long: Chicago (Rains) has been locked at 522 visits for two months – even though it is known, for a Fact, that various friends from other blogs, social sites, and personal relationships have been visiting/watching.  Further, in total relation, virtually every video at WindHarps Videos has experienced or witnessed an abrupt, absolute cessation of (Counted/Analytic) views during the same period.

Crucially revealing, this has happened numerous times over the last ten years – which also resulted in various (similar) letters sent to you via Fax, Email, and Feedback.

Why?  Do you have a problem with individuals who focus on God, Jesus Christ, and the Holy Spirit?  But no, since there are so many others who succeed on YouTube in the same vein it must not be that (as a core).  Is it something else, like Politics (past and present)?  Is it because of a ceasing of Advertising ($pending money) through AdWords for promotion?  Is it connected to the First Draft Coalition? Or, is it all (Holy Trinity, Politics, and Censorship) working together?

Whatever your (actual) reasons, a Resolution is sought – without my offering any compromises to permanent values or dedications.  The WindHarps channel and all related videos can be Unblocked and/or taken out of purposely effective obscurity (manually relegating content to pages 172, for example) should you choose, altruistically (as a matter of what is simply righteous – even in business models), or just technically (as a matter of the least levels – of business ethics).

(These factual statements have also be sent by way of Feedback).
Finally, forward this communication to any appropriate departments.

Addendum: How Covert Agents Infiltrate the Internet
to Manipulate,
Deceive, and Destroy Reputations

One of the many pressing stories that remains to be told from the Snowden archive is how intelligence agencies are attempting to manipulate and control online discourse with extreme tactics of deception and reputation-destruction.

[O]ur NBC reporting highlighted some of the key, discrete revelations: the monitoring of YouTube and Blogger, . . . and destructive viruses. But, here, I want to focus and elaborate on the overarching point revealed by all of these documents: namely, that these agencies are attempting to control, infiltrate, manipulate, and warp online discourse, and in doing so, are compromising the integrity of the internet itself.

In fact, the discussion of many of these techniques occurs in the context of using them in lieu of “traditional law enforcement” against people suspected (but not charged or convicted) of ordinary crimes or . . . those who use online protest activity for political ends.  The title page of one of these documents reflects the agency’s own awareness that it is “pushing the boundaries” by using “cyber offensive” techniques against people who have nothing to do with terrorism or national security threats.

The broader point is that . . . these surveillance agencies have vested themselves with the power to deliberately ruin people’s reputations. . . .

[This] amounts to targeting citizens for expressing their political beliefs, resulting in the stifling of legitimate dissent.

Under the tactics they use, the state is deliberately spreading lies on the internet about whichever individuals it targets, including the use of what GCHQ itself calls “false flag operations.”  Who would possibly trust a government to exercise these powers at all, let alone do so in secret, with virtually no oversight, and outside of any cognizable legal framework? : “Strategic Influence and Disruption.”

Whatever else is true, no government should be able to engage in these tactics.

Spies Seek to Control the Internet

The ability to manipulate the results of online polls, artificially inflate pageview counts on web sites, “amplif[y]” sanctioned messages on YouTube, and Censor Video Content judged to be “extremist.”  “Ability to artificially increase traffic to a website” (GATEWAY) and “ability to inflate page views on websites” (SLIPSTREAM).  “Amplification of a given message, normally video, on popular multimedia websites (Youtube)” (GESTATOR).  (As evidenced, “Censor[ing]”/blocking is often explicit, in reality).

GCHQ has Tools to Manipulate Online Information

Capabilities to boost views of YouTube videos, or to boost the circulation of particular messages are also detailed.

Snowden Docs Reveal Spies Snooped on YouTube and Facebook

The government can tap into the cables carrying the world’s web traffic at will and spy on what people are doing on some of the world’s most popular social media sites, including YouTube.  British cyber spies demonstrated a pilot program to their U.S. partners in 2012 in which they were able to monitor YouTube in real time and collect addresses. Called “Psychology A New Kind of SIGDEV” (Signals Development), the presentation includes a section that spells out “Broad real-time monitoring of online activity” of YouTube videos, URLs “liked” on Facebook, and Blogspot/Blogger visits.  The monitoring program is called “Squeaky Dolphin.”  “Governments have no business knowing which YouTube videos everyone in the world is watching.”

In Memory of Aaron Swartz

January 18, 2013

Aaron Swartz’s Politics

“As we think about what happened to Aaron, we need to recognize that it was not just prosecutorial overreach that killed him.  That’s too easy, because that implies it’s one bad apple.  We know that’s not true.  What killed him was corruption.  Corruption isn’t just people profiting from betraying the public interest.  It’s also people being punished for upholding the public interest.”

Totally Bogus Statement Concerning The Aaron Swartz Prosecution
“Basically, this whole system is wide open to abuse, and it’s clear from Ortiz’s actions that she, too, was abusing the system in this manner: pushing for super high possible jail time as a huge and scary weapon to try to pressure Swartz into accepting a lower rate — but also making him a convicted felon.”

Prosecutor as Bully
“That person is gone today, driven to the edge by what a decent society would only call bullying.  I get wrong.  But I also get proportionality.  And if you don’t get both, you don’t deserve to have the power of the United States government behind you.”

Government’s Prosecution of Aaron Swartz Pushed Him Toward Death
”I think Aaron was frightened and bewildered that they’d taken this incredibly hard line against him…He didn’t want to go to jail.  He didn’t want to be a felon.”

Aaron Swartz and the Corrupt Practice of Plea Bargaining
“But none of these rights matter if the defendant never gets to trial.  And thanks to the legal fiction that plea bargaining is a voluntary negotiation between the prosecutor and defendant, our justice system effectively gives people dramatically longer sentences for exercising the right to have a trial at all.”

Real Consequences for Prosecutorial Abuse in Case of Aaron Swartz
“The US has become a society in which political and financial elites systematically evade accountability for their bad acts, no matter how destructive.  Those who torture, illegally eavesdrop, commit systemic financial fraud, even launder money for designated terrorists and drug dealers are all protected from criminal liability, while those who are powerless – or especially, as in Swartz’s case, those who challenge power – are mercilessly punished for trivial transgressions.”

The Prosecution of Aaron Swartz Paints Obama’s Justice Department
And Heymann knew about Swartz’s mental health problems.  In an interview with the Boston Globe, Andy Good, Swartz’s first lawyer, said: “I told Heymann the kid was a suicide risk, … they were aware of the risk, and they were heedless.”  In what Good says is typical of prosecutors when dealing with a target who is a potential suicide, he recounted Heymann’s response as: “Fine, we’ll lock him up.”

Aaron Swartz and Jean Seberg
“The psychological toll of being targeted by the government for political beliefs is massive, the stuff that filled Soviet-era gulags.”

Watch Aaron Swartz Explain How SOPA Was Stopped

Inspiring Heroism of Aaron Swartz
“He could have easily opted for a life of great personal wealth, status, prestige and comfort.  He chose instead to fight – selflessly, with conviction and purpose, and at great risk to himself – for noble causes to which he was passionately devoted.”

Statement from the Family and Partner of Aaron Swartz
“We’re grateful for our time with him, to those who loved him and stood with him, and to all of those who continue his work for a better world.”

Remember Aaron Swartz
“Aaron’s insatiable curiosity, creativity, and brilliance; his reflexive empathy and capacity for selfless, boundless love; his refusal to accept injustice as inevitable—these gifts made the world, and our lives, far brighter.”

Occupations Rising: Pots and Pans Worldwide

In Quebec, A Revolution of Love, Hope and Community

“If we talk, if we exchange ideas and debate the future of our society, we will want to change it.  And nothing terrifies the powerful more than a change to the system which gives them their power.”

“People don’t need the media to tell them what is happening outside their door.  They can hear it.  They can feel it.  The genie cannot go back in the bottle. We are awake, truly awake for the first time in a long time.  We will not go back to sleep.”

Update (06/04):
Northern Light: Why Canada’s ‘Casserole’ Movement is All of Ours

Sound familiar? : Tuition abuses and “a call for higher fees for health care, the firing of public sector employees, the closure of factories, the corporate exploitation of natural resources, new restrictions on union organizing, and an announced increase in the retirement age.”

It should.  An extremist ideology was agreed upon by elite leaders throughout the world – in covert concerts.  “Austerity” and “Shared Sacrifice” would be a wave across all lands – this, purposely, being the direct opposite of what was needed (for positive recovery).  With these consciously regressive and oppressive measures, they could reshape the overall environment, laws, system, and masses – in what, to a select few, could be deemed as a (controlled) return to “The way it should be.”  Whereas FDR sought to reshape for everyone’s benefit, this ultimate upper class (O.05% to 1%) collusively sought/seeks to take every advantage of a worldwide financial collapse (crisis!!) – one which they created with Enron-vulture mind sets – for their sole benefit.

In relation, when people begin to rise, clear them out with (as written previously) sanitation ruses (a nationally coordinated onslaught to clear out OWSers).  Next, in association, “make demonstrations inside or near a college or university campus illegal and outlaw spontaneous demonstrations.”  Then, to make the mockery as blatantly in their (the whining, protesting proletariat) faces as possible, “force those who protest to seek permission from the police.”

Desperate Man Commits Suicide After Shocking Foreclosure Mistreatment

“Here’s the shocker: right at the start the Rousseaus came up with proof that the bank had received the payment and had cashed the check.”

Here’s the Truth: these mafia-type actions are nationwide business models, systematic, institutionalized (“like an assembly line”), and robo-signed (with ENRONish smiles: “Screw grandma, we’re getting that house.”).

Imagine if the same method had been applied to Norman Rousseau over a car loan.  Aside from the constantly modified interest rates and incessant fee scams, down to the last eight months of payments everything was spot on from Normon: never missed a payment/never late/always had “proof.”  Then, out of something planned, everything just kept, somehow, going wrong – for him.

First, the “bank misapplied [his] payment.”  Next, the bank lost (shredded) a payment – three times in the last eight months of the loan.  Then, the bank continued losing (shredding) every element of Normon’s “proof”: the cashier’s check receipts, certified mail from him with returned signatures from them, certified mail from even his attorney, documentation that they were cashing the checks, and so on (“like an assembly line”).  Finally (in the process), the bank started sending out repossession trucks.  Norman screamed to many authorities, local, state, and national: “Will anyone help me?  This is an outright scam!  I am being robbed!  This is like the mafia!  I have ‘proof!’”

But, no one stepped forward who could help – because the systematic actions were blind-eyed and covered – all the way to the White House.

Yes, that would be one level of nationwide (wink-wink) fraud.  Yet, we are talking about millions of people’s actual houses/homes.

Remember Dimitris Christoulas?  Remember this Buddhist?

At some critical juncture, during all of the manufactured crises, may as many as possible have finally seen, realized, and experienced – enough.

Remember this?

The Christian Spirit Rests with Occupy Protestors

Foreclosure Fraud?  Obama Looks Forward

And when President Obama turned to Larry Summers and his apprentice Timothy Geithner and other Wall Street hacks to manage his economic team, it showed that “Hope” and “Change” really meant “Business As Usual.”
