In a frightening example of how the state is tightening its grip around the free Internet, it has emerged that You Tube is complying with thousands of requests from governments to censor and remove videos that show protests and other examples of citizens simply asserting their rights, while also deleting search terms by government mandate.

The latest example is You Tube’s compliance with a request from the British government to censor footage of the British Constitution Group’s Lawful Rebellion protest, during which they attempted to civilly arrest Judge Michael Peake at Birkenhead county court.

Peake was ruling on a case involving Roger Hayes, former member of UKIP, who has refused to pay council tax, both as a protest against the government’s treasonous activities in sacrificing Britain to globalist interests and as a result of Hayes clearly proving that council tax is illegal.

Hayes has embarked on an effort to legally prove that the enforced collection of council tax by government is unlawful because no contract has been agreed between the individual and the state. His argument is based on the sound legal principle that just like the council, Hayes can represent himself as a third party in court and that “Roger Hayes” is a corporation and must be treated as one in the eyes of the law.

The British government doesn’t want this kind of information going viral in the public domain because it is scared stiff of a repeat of the infamous poll tax riots of 1990, a massive tax revolt in the UK that forced the Thatcher government to scrap the poll tax altogether because of mass civil disobedience and refusal to pay.

When viewers in the UK attempt to watch videos of the protest, they are met with the message, “This content is not available in your country due to a government removal request.”

Hmmm, wondering what I think this means? First, I beg you to (ironically) watch the YOUTUBE video below. Trust me, you never heard a speech like this before (Unless you've seen this clip before of course). Enjoy!

Only Believe Half of What You See

Your getting Sleepy...

Wait a minute that video just told you not to believe everything you see on TV but, does that apply to the internet too? Ladies and gentlemen I presume that goes for everything. I am not telling you to believe everything I say, hell I don't even know what's true myself anymore, too many lies mixed in with the truth these days. What I am asking you to do is, open your mind whenever you open your eyes and ears. Normally that should go without saying but, it doesn't seem like common sense is all that common anymore. A lot of us are so trapped in "The Matrix" that we don't see the glitches when they appear right in front of us. I am here to help.

Let's be clear here, this move by YouTube is not illegal. YouTube is not only a internet video sharing network, it is also a company, and although we are permitted freedom of speech here in America, this company has the right to run their website the way they want to. They can remove content whenever they want to. The question that should be asked is not if they can do this but, why they would do this?


Finding Nemo

Who could have ever guessed a non scripted, documentary type show produced by MTV would end up 'really' changing the world? In 1992 'The Real World' was introduced to television watchers around the world. It was something that had never been seen in America before. This show was, "The true story of seven stranger picked to live in a house and have their lives taped, to find out what happens when people stop being polite and start getting real." Niiiice! We get to sit home and watch other people get into arguments, fights, and roller coaster relationships. This was like a soap opera but better, it was 'REAL,' or so they say. Originally the show was going to be scripted but that idea got pulled right before it aired, you can look that up if you want to. Now that doesn't necessarily mean that these shows were scripted (at least not the first season I hope), but it also doesn't mean that some of the things that happened and now happen on these shows are not 'encouraged.' Being a person who has worked on single episodes on some of these shows I can tell you from experience that, these shows are not what people think they are. Right now the amount of reality shows on television are so abundant I don't even think they can be tracked. Even if they could be the numbers would not be accurate because theres a new one that comes out like every week. Little do people know, all of these shows run on a basic blueprint that is a combination of scripted scenes and encouraged improvisation. Put a camera in front of a bunch of young, sexy people with different personalities, give them a nice place to stay for awhile and feed them lots of free alcohol on a daily basis. What the Hell do you think is going to happen next? Drunken arguments, fights, sex, and narcissistic, erratic behavior. If a day of shooting is going kind of slow (aka boring) you can always stir the fish bowl in an attempt to 'Find Nemo' or in other words, a star of the day. If that still doesn't work you can also edit something to look more interesting than it really was, in post production. Oh did I mention I am a film major? What I am trying to say here is, don't believe everything you see on TV because believe it or not, it may be possible that you are only being allowed to see what a select group of people want you to see.

You Give Us 22 Minutes, We'll Give You Some Lies

Honestly, I have no problem with scripted television shows. I think we should have as many as we use to 20 years ago. Back then people knew what was real and what was fantasy. Now, it's hard to tell. Right now if you ask me, I'd say reality television and the news are one and the same. Both are a combination of truth and lies that are shinned up to look and sound like the truth. Most of it's all an act, hell the news casters and reporters even look like actors themselves. We use to get our news from people like Walter Cronkite and Barbara Walters, two older personalities that gave most viewers at least a perception of trust and wisdom. What do we have now? Now we have Anderson Cooper and Megyn Kelly, two reporters who spent time in Iraq but never one day looked like they missed an appointment at the beauty shop. What does this mean? Well my friend it means a couple things, some minor, some major.

1. At the end of the day sex sells, no matter if your selling Avon products or the news. This is kind of unfortunate because it makes keeping you entertained the main goal of most news programming now.

2. Another part of it is 'us,' we have ADD(Attention Deficit Disorder), we need to be entertained 24-7 or else we are going to change the channel.

3. This is the major one. Ponder this. If one knows that Americans believe everything they see on TV, especially reality shows and news programs which claim to be authentic, then one can probably manipulate the truth worldwide if they had a way of getting everyone to tune into the same...wait for it...'digital signal.' That's right, remember that DTV antenna you had purchase 2yrs. ago in order to be able to watch TV? Our government even offered to pay for your new converter box (aww how nice). If you think this doesn't matter think about this, didn't President Obama interrupt Donald Trump's show to announce the killing of Osama Bin Laden? Never mind the fact that he could have called a press conference any other time maybe hours earlier when it was 'confirmed' or later. Never mind the fact that Donald Trump had been harassing Obama's team about his birth certificate. If you can control The Tube you can control the world., and that statement goes for television and the internet.

The TV Told Me It Was True

Let's take a look at what popular right now on the good old 'Boob Tube'

Mob Wives (VH1) - This show is about the lives of women who are either married to are fathered by actual real life mobsters. Now, I'm not a friend of theirs or a friend of ours but I'm pretty sure these women aren't supposed to be talking about 'family' business on television for the whole world to see, right?

Khloe & Lamar (E) - This is a show about Kim Kardashian's sister and her new husband, the recently swept NBA star Lamar Odom. Um let's see, I don't know what either of the Kardashian sisters does that's so special, besides have sex with black athletes and spend money, and as for Mr. Odom I can't help but think this other 'reality' he's involved in has effected his career. Him and Andrew Bynum's reaction to getting their butts kicked by The Dallas Mavericks was an insult to NBA fans, and The Great Phil Jackson, who does nothing but put money into the black man's pockets, and their families.

Pregnant and 16 (MTV) - This show is about teenage girls who are pregnant, huh? Why have a show about that? Well it isn't that bad of an idea if it succeeds at making teenage girls think twice before making certain sexual decisions but, unfortunately most teenage girls are already obsessed with being a 'Reality TV Star' that they go out of their way to put provacative pictures of themselves on Myspace, Facebook, Black Berry Messenger or any other place they can find in order to be more like Kim (Ray J Sex Tape) Kardashian and their other idols.

First 48 (A&E) - I actually like this show but, I'm a little confused. How do these people give information to the police on camera with out their faces blurred out and then return back to 'The Hood' untouched. I am not promoting violence in anyway but I'm saying, either some of this stuff is being fabricated or I need to get some follow up information on some of these cases. In addition to this, I have a problem with the amount of interrogation secrets that are being given out. At some point everyone will have seen at least one episode of this show and know that when you go into the little tiny room with the chairs that you keep your mouth shut, because usually they really don't 'have anything on you.'

I'm no saint I've made mistakes in my life so if some of you want to attack me for what I'm saying about some of this stuff I'm fine. I'm old enough and I've been through enough to take it, it doesn't matter to me. What does matter to me is BS. I don't like being lied to! Especially by the people I am supposed to be able to trust. Let's take a look at what's been going on while we were watching TV:

Sept. 11, 2001 - Both Twin Towers in New York City drop at free fall speed after being hit by commercial passenger planes flown by newly licensed first time pilot terrorists. The cause of the free fall collapse is said to be the fuel from the plane. Supposedly it got to hot in 'both' buildings and the heat melted the steel beams bringing both down in 'pancake' fashion. Never mind the fact that many other buildings have sustained higher temperatures and didn't fall like that.

Sept. 11, 2001 - Building 7 of The World Trade Center which didn't get hit by any airplanes and was nowhere near the Twin Towers, collapses in the same pancake fashion. Again at free fall speed. Never mind the fact that no leaking plane fuel was inside this building and the fires on the roof were barely hot enough to burn the building down let alone make it collapse.

On May 1, 2003 , then President Bush landed on USS Abrham Lincoln, a U.S. military aircraft carrier returning from The Persian Gulf. He then exits the fighter plane wearing a flight suit and gives a speech announcing the end of major combat operations in The Iraq War. Today more than 8yrs. later, we are still in Iraq and terrorism is allegedly still on the rise, what mission did we accomplish?

April 27, 2011, after the constant mocking of Donald Trump President Obama conducts a news conference to show the all of America that he was indeed born in this country and thus is legally able to serve as President. Never mind the fact that people have been asking for his birth certificate since he was just a Presidential nominee, and never mind the fact that we had previously been told that the PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATE OF AMERICA could not get a copy of his birth certificate. This is not a joke, Obama had previously said he didn't have time to go pick it up and the mayor of Hawaii said he couldn't find it.

On May 1, 2011, wait what? Isn't that the same day Bush did the 'Mission Accomplished' Thing 8 yrs. ago? Anyway, President Barack Obama holds a news conference to announce that U.S. Navy SEAL's had killed 9/11 mastermind Osama Bin Laden, but you can't see the body because we had to bury it at see ASAP. That is the Muslim tradition, oh it's not? That's not true? Oh well. We also have tapes of a gray bearded Osama or 'Mr. Laden' if you nasty, watching himself of television in a motel 6 or something in Pakistan. Oh now we have 'recent' I repeat 'recent' video bloopers of a couple of his never before seen terrorist threat tapes. Never mind the the fact that he has more weight on his face or a black beard, he dyed it for the videos. He became a little self-conscious after the many years of being gray (he must have stock in Just For Men).

Phew! that's a lot to take in huh? well yeah that's the point.

Look Ma, No Brains!

If you Don't Stand For Something...

Have you ever seen the movie Wall-E? If not you should it's very good. It is a 2008 Animated film by Disney/Pixar that potrays a bleek future for the human race and planet Earth. In the movie it's 700 years in the future and the human race has been forced to live on a huge space ship in outer space because they have abused the planet's natural resources so bad that Earth is no longer inhabitable. One of the themes of the movie is basically recycling but the other theme is the one that correlates with this hub. On the space ship every human is so obese and out of shape that they can't even stand. They move around in beds that hover in the air and each bed comes with a television that also hovers, right in front of their faces! Their days consist of watching television and eating, wait a minute, that sounds a lot like the present doesn't it? I don't want to ruin the whole movie for anyone who hasn't seen it so let me skip to the moral of 'my' story.

If we allow ourselves to continue to believe all of the obviously fabricated stories that the Tube is telling us is real, then we are going to end up getting robbed. Robbed of our money, our homes, our families, and our freedom. The tube is being used as a distraction, sort of like the way a magician distracts you with one hand while he is using the other to pull of a magic trick. Be clear its called a magic 'trick', not simply 'magic' because 'magic' is not real, it's a form of trick. When all is said and done, if we keep allowing ourselves to be distracted by cheap parlor tricks, then before you know it our country is going to disappear... (poof!) right before our eyes.

"Dad, thanks to TV, I can't remember what happened eight minutes ago. No, really, it's a serious problem. Ha, ha, ha! What're we laughing about?"-Bart Simpson

      Thank you, this is one of my favorites. It puts the spotlight on television in a way that most people would never think of. Even though most people know that too much TV is bad for you, I don't think they understand why. Hopefully this hub explains it well enough.
