CYBER-SABOTAGE CRIPPLES ANTI-ENDA FIGHT
By Rev. Ted Pike
11 Nov 13
ENDA, the Employment Non-Discrimination Act, passed the Senate last Thursday 64 to 32. This victory was helped by a hacker removing my emergency alerts from Rense.com.
On October 28, Senate majority leader Reid announced that “sometime before Thanksgiving” the Senate would vote on ENDA (a bill giving homosexuals preferential legal rights in the work place). A cloture vote took place Monday, November 4, authorizing a final vote “at the end of the week.”
Monday night the National Prayer Network sounded the alarm by sending my brief alert, “Senate Will Vote on ENDA by End of Week!” to Rense and our mailing list of 10,000 names. By Wednesday morning Rense.com posted my two-part article, “How ENDA Ends Workplace Freedom.” Fully persuading Rense's large audience, equal to WorldNetDaily's readers, was vital in order to raise enough calls to potentially change some votes in the Senate to our side. We only had a few precious hours when senators would be in their offices before arriving at the Senate Thursday to vote. However, my warning didn’t successfully reach Rense readers. Sometime after he posted my articles, hackers removed them from his website. Rense told me that he had posted them and seen them in his right-hand column, but they were not there at the time he told me this. Rense reposted my two-part article Wednesday afternoon, but it was too late. His large audience was not fully mobilized in time to effectively influence the Senate before their vote on ENDA by about 2:30 EST Thursday.
Warning Goes Out Despite Hacking
Despite such attacks, I was able to send a warning to activists of the right through e-alerts to my subscribers and an hour-long program with Rense on Monday night. Also, on Tuesday, popular talk show host Dr. Laurie Roth promised to use my articles for a special show alerting her listeners on about 50 affiliate stations. The same day I called in to Deanna Spingola’s talk show on Republic Radio Network, briefly describing the threat of ENDA and soliciting calls to the Senate. Finally, that night, I explained ENDA for an hour on Pastor Ernie Sanders' program to a worldwide radio audience through a Christian superstation in Cleveland, Ohio.
As a result, even though hacking delayed me, when I finally got a minute to call the Senate in protest on Wednesday, a staffer said, “Hundreds of calls on both sides had been coming in on both sides all morning.” Where did the calls on our side come from? Probably not from watchdog groups on the religious right which favor online protest forms, not telephoning. I believe the hundreds of calls were successfully engendered by NPN's proactive alerts, generating calls from the alternative (anti-Zionist) right.
Is Greater Cyber-Censorship Coming?
The fact that crucial articles were hacked off a major political website could raise concern about the possibility, and legality, of much greater attacks on a free internet in the future.
A shutdown by sinister forces in government, ostensibly in the name of national emergency, “homeland security” and countering “domestic terrorism,” is already authorized through an executive order of July 2012 by President Obama. It empowers him to end all US communications: radio, TV, telephones (including cell phones), internet, etc., after such an "emergency" has been declared. The government, for an indeterminate period, will be the only source of news and opinion for the American people. As in all communist takeovers, how many pastors, critics of the government, and anti-Zionist intellectuals will be whisked away to prisons or internment camps, never to be heard from again? The people, unable to effectively communicate, will have to be content to take the government's word that it has everything under control, with our best interests in mind. (See “Obama Seizes Control of All Communications Systems With Executive Order” and “Executive Order -- Assignment of National Security and Emergency Preparedness Communications Functions”).
The Israelis, not waiting for such an “emergency,” have also enlisted their own cyber technology experts and thousands of Jewish “cyber warriors” worldwide in attempts to end “cyber hate," i.e., criticism of Israel and Jewish supremacism.
In my 2010 article “Israeli Cyber-Warriors 'Crash' Internet” I write,
…for the past four years, Israel's Foreign Ministry has been creating an international cadre of Israeli and Jewish "cyber-warriors" who will do more than "educate" against internet critics; they may also now be spreading confusion, disinformation, and even sabotage against Israel’s critics on the web…
'Israel's government has thrown its weight behind efforts by supporters to counter what it believes to be negative bias and a tide of pro-Arab propaganda. The Foreign Ministry has ordered trainee diplomats to track websites and chat rooms so that networks of US and European groups with hundreds of thousands of Jewish activists can place supportive messages. In the past week, nearly five-thousand members of the World Union of Jewish Students (WUJS) have downloaded special "megaphone" software that alerts them to anti-Israeli chat rooms or internet polls to enable them to post contrary viewpoints. A student team in Jerusalem combs the web in a host of different languages to flag the sites so that those who have signed up can influence an opinion survey or the course of a debate.' (Times Online, "Israel Backed By Army of Cyber-Soldiers," July 28, 2006)”
Israel's attempt to destroy internet opposition may already be well advanced. Increasingly, a host of saboteurs attack critics of Israel on the Internet.
- Spreading gossip and accusations within the right, promoting distrust.
- Representing themselves as conspiracy theorists who are profane and violent.
- Posing as wildly irresponsible anti-Semites and right-wing extremists in order to frighten away newcomers.
- Calling for imminent violence.
- Cluttering search engines with disinformation.
- Inciting religious and racial tensions.
- Voting down good videos as soon as they appear while voting up bad ones (Result: good videos languish from lack of interest)
Joel Leyden runs the Israeli government-approved Israel News Agency and commands at least 100,000 Jewish cyber-warriors worldwide. When an Iranian newspaper in 2006 sponsored a cartoon contest critical of establishment history of the Holocaust, Leyden "used search-engine optimization [directing search-engine results], to successfully bury the Iranian content, and added text inserts into their cartoons which explained the facts of the Holocaust." Israel's destruction of the Iranian contest was not "education" but cyber-terrorism. (The Jewish Chronicle, “Israel Internet PR Cyber-Warriors" by Lucy Tobin, February 12, 2009) It is the equivalent of one newspaper hiring thugs to smash a rival newspaper’s printing presses.
Speak Out While There Is Time
Lovers of freedom must continue to speak out against Jewish supremacism and its emergent cyber terrorism while there is time. Like the federal hate crimes law, ENDA is a product of the Jewish Anti-Defamation League and its desire to break down Christian values, property rights, and sexual morality, in order to move America and the world toward a Judaic new world order. Thus, there is little doubt in my mind that my warning articles on Rense.com were hacked by ADL/Jewish cyber experts determined to pass ENDA.
I conclude the previously quoted article with these lines:
… awareness, action, and suspicion must pervade the Christian/conservative right as the government of Israel attempts to take over the very greatest forums of freedom left to us: a free internet. If Israel wants ballot-stuffing and destruction of the communication pools of its critics, then let such repression be confined to its twisted "democracy," Israel.
Everyone must let Israel know that ‘by way of deception’ [Mossad’s motto] will not be tolerated on the information super highway. The internet belongs to everyone.
We saw last week in the ENDA battle how cyber terrorists can cripple, even ruin, an effective legislative campaign. Ultimately, the forces of evil and censorship may indeed become so dominant that it will be impossible to effect political change any longer. In the worst case, patriots may be reduced to simply keeping truth as much alive as possible in their communities. I plan to keep telling the whole truth and sounding the alarm as long as I can. I’m here for the duration. I hope you will stand with me.
