World War Web Advisory #1: Are You An Unwitting Victim Of Internet Censorship?

WORLD WAR WEB ADVISORY #1: ARE YOU AN UNWITTING VICTIM OF INTERNET CENSORSHIP?

1. Emails about topics like Occupy Wall Street, 9/11, the USA Patriot Act, Citizens United v. FEC, AT&T Mobility v. Concepcion, the National Defense Authorization Act of 2012 (NDAA), the Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA), the Protect IP Act (PIPA) and the Enemy Expatriation Act (EEA) are being blocked by Network Solutions, Verizon and other ISPs using Barracuda, Cloudmark Authority and other Internet censorship systems euphemistically referred to as “spam filters”. The 99% can use the same weapon against the 1%: Whenever you receive emails from corrupt corporations – such as those listed at http://contractormisconduct.org – flag them as spam and report them to your ISP.

2. Your Twitter “tweets” about topics like Occupy Wall Street, 9/11, the USA Patriot Act, Citizens United v. FEC, AT&T Mobility v. Concepcion, the National Defense Authorization Act of 2012 (NDAA), the Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA), the Protect IP Act (PIPA) and the Enemy Expatriation Act (EEA) may be blocked from the Twitter search stream without your knowledge. To find out, make a posting with a popular #hashtag, log out of Twitter, clear your “cookies” then close and restart your web browser. Before logging back in, search Twitter – https://twitter.com/#!/search-home – on your #hashtag and see if your tweet is listed. ( Note that these are generalized instructions: Use your judgment. )

3. Your Facebook postings, YouTube comments, other social media posts and online news article and blog comments about topics like Occupy Wall Street, 9/11, the USA Patriot Act, Citizens United v. FEC, AT&T Mobility v. Concepcion, the National Defense Authorization Act of 2012 (NDAA), the Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA), the Protect IP Act (PIPA) and the Enemy Expatriation Act (EEA) may also be blocked without your knowledge. To find out if you are being censored, bookmark your page and log out after you post, clear your “cookies” then close and restart your web browser. Before logging back in, use your bookmark to reload and refresh the page where you posted or commented, and see if your posting is still there. ( Note that these are generalized instructions: Use your judgment. )

4. Although our kleptocracy-chronicling links are still there, our Reddit page – http://www.reddit.com/user/vvvpr – has been blocked, most likely due to corporate fascist pressure being applied from outside or above, although I’m sure they’ll claim it was due to a TOS (terms of service) violation. We will be replicating this link archive elsewhere. And the more of our link archives they take down, the more mirror copies we will put up. Follow us on Twitter @vvvpr for updates.

Veracity with Tenacity: VVV Public Relations Offers Guerrilla Marketing Revelations To Take Down Corrupt Corporations

VVV Public Relations, Righteous Black PR Firm

In marketing, perception is reality. And in the mainstream media, much of what we see is not real, and much of what is real we don’t see. Where market share is based on market deception, VVV PR can counter with “perception correction”.

George Orwell wrote that “In a time of universal deceit, telling the truth is a revolutionary act.” That very much describes the value proposition of VVV Public Relations ( VVV PR ), a startup online PR firm headquartered in Miami Florida whose stated mission is to “…apply veracity with tenacity to vanquish the opponents and advance the agendas of the business clients we serve and the social causes we champion.” The “VVV” acronym is short for Veritas Virtual Vengeance, a reference to their new website http://VeritasVirtualVengeance.com also accessible via http://VVVPR.com.

A product of our turbulent times, VVV PR was founded by the veteran online guerrilla marketing consultant and human rights cyberactivist known to many as “IronBoltBruce”. Since last September 17 – the first day of Occupy Wall Street and the global revolutionary movement it has inspired – he and his associates have been providing OWS protesters and supporters with a steady stream of well-researched and referenced exposés disclosing and detailing the who, what, where, when, why and how of dozens of examples of the corporate greed and political corruption – in a word, kleptocracy – that now fuels the fires of discontent expressed by an ever-increasing number of concerned citizens from all parts of the political spectrum. Their postings have also raised awareness of some of the most pressing issues facing America today including NDAA 2012, SOPA/PIPA, EEA, the Keystone XL Pipeline and the fact that we often have tainted if not predetermined election results.

With VVV PR, this social entrepreneur and guerrilla activism enabler now offers that potent base of resources and expertise to businesses, co-ops, collectives and other organizations, movements and groups committed to “doing well by doing good” that would stand to benefit from a truth-telling takedown of corporate competitors engaging in illegal, immoral or unethical activities.

“In theory, free market capitalism is supposed to be a level playing field where informed and willing buyers and sellers succeed or fail based on the profits or losses resulting from their revenues earned and expenses incurred.” IronBoltBruce observed. “But in practice, what we have is crony capitalism: Global corporations pay lobbyists and politicians to write the rules in their favor if they can, and simply defy the rules if they can’t. And although our courts say corporations are ‘persons’, they can treat settlements and penalties for criminal conduct as costs of doing business with no concerns about incarceration or execution to deter illegal actions. In addition, through their puppet politicians they can ghost-write laws that give them subsidies ( a.k.a. corporate welfare ), tax breaks, and the ability to externalize pollution and other social costs. And if despite all those advantages they still lose money, our corporate-controlled government will grant them ‘too big to fail’ status and give them a key to the U.S. Treasury. Would you call that a level playing field?”

VVV PR thinks not. And they’re out to level that field for their clients by using truth-based “perception correction” to alter the buying habits and improve the decisions of consumers misled about products and their producers by mainstream media, subliminal advertising and other forms of “perception deception”.

For example:

  • If you knew that the FDA has declared Cheerios “is not generally recognized as safe and effective for use in preventing or treating hypercholesterolemia or coronary heart disease”, would you still buy it for your family as a “heart-healthy” breakfast alternative ( http://1.usa.gov/vLaiLM )?
  • If you knew that according to InfluenceExplorer.com Ruppert Murdock’s News Corp – parent of Fox News – gave Barack Obama over $380,000 in donations, would you view the endless acrimony between the White House and Fox’s pundits as serious or staged ( http://bit.ly/ooSqP3 )?
  • If you knew that according to NPR.prg and other sources the CDC Director that approved it was then hired by the company that makes it, would you give your children the questionable Merck vaccine Gardasil ( http://n.pr/5J7xGy )?
  • If you knew that according to investigative journalist Edwin Black they willingly assisted Hitler’s Nazi Germany with rounding up the Jews during the Holocaust, would you still do business with IBM ( http://bit.ly/yU4x15 )?

VVV PR thinks not. And they stand ready to deploy an innovative mix of “White Hat Black PR” alternatives to expose terrible truths like these on behalf of clients who are willing and causes that are deserving. Follow them on Twitter @vvvpr.


Creeping Fascism: If We Don’t Kill NDAA/SOPA/EEA/Keystone XL Pipeline They Win. If We Only Kill NDAA/SOPA/EEA/Keystone XL Pipeline We Lose.

Creeping Fascism

This is a heads-up reminder that NDAA 2012, SOPA, PIPA, EEA and the accelerated approval of the Keystone XL Pipeline were all thrown at us AFTER 17 September 2011, i.e. “Day One” of Occupy Wall Street and the global Occupy movement. We must reject or reverse all of these or we lose. But even if we undo NDAA, stop SOPA, prevent PIPA, eliminate EEA and outlaw the Keystone XL Pipeline, that doesn’t mean we win. It simply means we’d be right back where we started on 9/17, facing all the same injustices that inspired us to rise up against the corporate fascist elite kleptocracy that has taken over the United States government and through it much of the rest of the world. In other words…

If we don’t kill NDAA/SOPA/EEA and the Keystone XL Pipeline, they win. But if we only kill NDAA/SOPA/EEA and the Keystone XL Pipeline, we lose. To win we must remove corporations and their money from our politics and government then un-rig our voting machines and roll back years of their diabolically patient deception-after-deception, law-by-law, concession-after-concession, degree-by-degree, boiling-the-frog approach to global wealth concentration and world domination. The starting point is to reverse this timeline:
