This frustrating lack of content brought to you by our friends in Congress.

Courtesy of Anonyops:

 Greetings United States gov, 

We are the Internet. Again, you are trying to pass this ridiculous CISPA law in order to control and censor the people. This will not stand. You already control the medias, the economy, the criminal underworld, your national plots and our energy. YOU WILL NOT GET OUR INTERNET! 

The U.S. law that would turn Google, Facebook, and Twitter into legally untouchable government spies just passed the House. 

This bill affects everyone — not just U.S. citizens. Anyone with a Facebook account could now have their data shipped directly to the U.S. government. That’s why Internet users overwhelmingly oppose this bill. Over 1.5 million people signed petitions against it. But Congress didn’t listen. This law broadened the state terror and repression of the people. By allowing corporations to track our every action on the internet the state and corporations will be merged and that we have seen before: it is called fascism. 

We are going dark on MONDAY April 22nd at 6 AM GMT for 24 hours to protest your illogical and terrorizing bill against the Internet itself. Even with the whole Internet crying out to stop this BILL, the US House of Representatives failed to do so blinded by lobbyist’s money and cum in your eyes. So we will take action ourselves and open your eyes. Every popular/mainstream websites will be black until you, Mr. DronObama promise us to use your VETO power to stop this bill at Senate. Take this as a protest or a warning, as you wish. One thing is for certain, neither you or anyone else in this world can control the Internet, so don’t even try. Stop wasting taxpayers’ money into doing these kind of shenanigans. 

We are Anonymous. 
We are Legion. 
We do not Forgive. 
We do not Forget. 
Expect us.

    Didn't DC criticize Iran and China for the same thing? Who the hell do they think they are?

  2. As you can see I am showing solidarity with other websites and blogd in the fight for our internet freedoms.

    My plan is to keep this page focused on CISPA today, and only update it with information concerning that legislation, if at all.

    I will however keep the comment sections up to date and you are free to talk about anything you want, even if it is NOT CISPA related.

    If something huge comes along of course we may have to abandon this topic and cover THAT instead, but if things go as planned I will start non-CISPA related updates starting at 12:30 AM Tuesday.

    I haven't had any problems visiting any websites yet, so....?

    1. Anonymous3:41 PM

      So? Nobody suggested you would have problems. Take the trouble to read and comprehend. Your porn is safe.

    Hey it's Monday..did Beck choose this day of reckoning on purpose so when he doesn't 'expose' Obama it will be because he was not online?

    1. Anonymous6:27 AM

      Link please? I hadn't heard about this.

    2. To Anonymous 6:27 am, this has been reported in a number of places. Beck claims that the Saudi witness was actually involved and that the administration is behind spiriting him put of the country to avoid anyone discovering the administration's hand in the bombing.

      Beck claims that it is a massive huge enormous scoop that will result in the certain (at last!) impeachment of the President, and tada, he will unveil all today. Prepare to be dazzled.

      I haven't gone directly to Beck's site, but other outlets have reported this latest Beck idiocy.

  5. Anonymous5:55 AM

    Threats without carry through seem pointless. ????

  6. Aren’t the Koch brothers buying some old media? There must be a plan afoot to shut new media down.

    Thank you, Anonymous; I fear we would have RMoney for president if not for you.

  7. Anonymous6:35 AM

    OT: I'm hoping that someone can take the time to check out the open thread over at the peepond (better take a swig of Pepto-Bismal first to counteract the nausea-inducing bile written over there) and read the excerpt of a speech sarah gave "earlier this month". Pay attention to the last couple of paragraphs, and let me know your take on it. I found it particularly disturbing, but maybe that's just me.

    1. Anonymous7:29 AM

      maybe you could post it here? I am not going there.

    2. Anonymous1:14 PM

      Last 3 paragraphs to keep it in context:

      "From the tiniest baby in the womb to the most powerful man in the world, we are equal, and if we are equal one man’s personal pursuit of happiness must not take away another’s right to life….

      Please stay vigilant on this life issue. Let us continue to hope and pray that God brings an end to the injustice, pray for legislation and policy born out of the awakened conscience of a nation and take action, though, don’t just pray, because what I’ve found, God doesn’t drive parked cars

      He expects us to get up and go, and take action, and do the right thing in spite of the critics and what others will say and there’s some harsh, harsh rhetoric out there aimed our way, when we try to follow what our blueprint tells us to do, and that’s the Good Book and it’s not that difficult to do, what’s difficult sometimes is putting up with the noise that’s out there…"

      I don't know for sure without researching, but I think it was referring to the Gosnell anti-abortion mess. She must be rallying her monkeys again.

    4. Anonymous6:27 PM

      Is this the case they are talking about?

    5. Anonymous4:48 AM

      And yet she thinks nutty people have the right to purchase guns...but...your right to pursue happiness shouldn't interfere with other people's right to life?

    "Every popular/mainstream websites will be black..."

    An empty threat that Anonymous cannot hope to accomplish because of the technical issues involved.

    They may shut down one or two, but "Every popular/mainstream..."? Not going to happen.

    That being said, I have every possible bit of respect for what Anonymous *does* accomplish in the name of truth and justice. I hope they continue to thrive in that endeavor.

    1. I, too, hope this isn't an empty threat as I wouldn't want their influence diminished. But I was on Amazon and Facebook this morning with no problem.

    2. They are not threatening to shut down web sites. It is voluntary. Web sites that oppose this bill have listed with them and gone black today. So far, here is a list of them. I will be visiting some of them tomorrow. Many of them, I didn't know about, but look very interesting.

      Every morning, there are 4 web sites I go to. This one, Fark, Huffington Post and Facebook. If they had all gone dark today, I would miss it, but also would have been totally supportive.

    What time is 6 GMT as compared to AST?

    1. Anonymous8:09 AM

      Alaska Standard Time (AKST) is GMT-8 so 6 GMT would have been 10pm last night, 4/21 AKST.

      Here's a handy converter:

  10. I'm generally a "fan" of Anonymous, but "Every popular/mainstream websites will be black until you, Mr. DronObama promise us to use your VETO power to stop this bill at Senate." is absurd. Frankly it doesn't even sound like something "Anonymous" would say.

    1. It also doesn't sound like Anonymous to me.

      Anyone think this may be an independent hacker wannabe all bluff and bluster?

    2. Super Fan In Atlanta6:39 PM

      I agree wholeheartedly. Anonymous is usually much cleaner, direct and precise in their statements. I've never heard them call the President out of his name either. They even used the word cum. So out of character!!!

      I didn't buy it the moment I read it. Perhaps some attempt to start discrediting them because of the election?

  11. SHARON8:37 AM

    I wish this group had been around in 2000...we could have done without the Bush nightmare of 8 years. I have been following this new law, and its been very quiet among our media giants. Just think about our economy if Congress actually did anything responsible, like jobs,gun control, immigration..instead all they work on is big brother krap, abortion, voter rights, they are all traitors. I support this group, when it comes to the internet....they are the watchdogs we need.

  12. Anonymous9:23 AM

    I don't get the logic of a blackout unless the affected pages were replaced with something like this info on CISPA and link to Call Your Senators.

  13. Anonymous10:36 AM

    When they run for re-election in 2014 and campaign on protecting the Constitution and your freedom, don't forget to laugh in their face and remind them they voted FOR CISPA.

    Including: Don Young, Paul Ryan, Eric Cantor, and all of the SarahPAC donation recipients who were elected, except Paul Gosar

  14. imnofred11:16 AM

    This CISPA thing is a friggin joke. We criticize other countries for doing similar things. Thank goodness that it won't get thru the Senate.

    1. Are we sure?

      You know what they'll do. They'll reword it and rename it and put it through again. And they'll keep doing it until it gets passed.

  15. Anonymous11:35 AM

    The Obama administration wants to take away all our civil liberties.
    What authorized the suspension of the 4th Amendment in Watertown, Ma.
    Americans were forced out of their homes at gunpoint by SWAT teams and their homes searched.
    Many of these searches were not voluntary.
    Take back our country.

    1. Anonymous12:30 PM

      Indeed, this was wrong, but our police are becoming increasingly militarized. I dare say though that we have never been free of fear and no doubt many of the people whose homes were searched gladly did it. Consider how quickly after 9/11 we gave up liberties? The problem is finding out who benefits most when these liberties are given up. Curiously, our military is extremely right wing, go on any military base and see which channel the TVs in public areas are set. Fox is the winner of their hearts on the base near me. And, these are the people who are responsible for yours and my "security."

    2. Anonymous3:27 PM

      11:35 AM Do you have the same complaint about 'STOP AND FRISK'? Or does it only apply when you are affected?

    3. Anonymous4:08 PM

      And you'd like to take us back to the Dark Ages, 11:35 AM? Bloody good luck with that. If I've done nothing wrong, let them search. Here's a roll of tin foil for ya....

    4. Dearest 11:35--

      Please read the 4th amendment. It protects us against unreasonable searches and seizures. Then start researching probable cause and related topics. You may then report back here.

      It's my country too, by the way, and I and a majority of voters--which is how we do things in "our" country-- want to take our country forward, not back.

      (I grow weary of tiresome prattling by those who cannot read or reason.)

    5. Anonymous7:43 PM

      The key word is "unreasonable". They have probable cause to search when in hot pursuit. If you refuse, they would get a warrant and you would look like an asshole.

    6. Anonymous7:45 PM

      The police are not becoming increasingly militarized. They are about as militarized as they have always been.

  16. Anonymous4:31 PM

    Well, it seems nothing came of this as it was "tomorrow" 4/23, GMT 1/2 hour ago. This posted message from Anonymous almost seems as if it was not written by them; it contained poor grammar and awkward statements. If they did actually attempt this it certainly did not achieve their ends, and something they need to remember is that the ends don't always justify the means.

  17. I love Anonymous...
