Anonymous avenges death of Aaron Swartz with takeover of US government judicial website and message of freedom

(NaturalNews) Mere weeks after the death of internet revolutionary Aaron Swartz who was threatened with 50 years of prison time by the U.S. government, the group Anonymous has struck back with a takeover of the U.S. Sentencing Commission website. (IP address of 18.104.22.168)
That attack took control of the website and replaced it with the following message from Anonymous:
Citizens of the world,
Anonymous has observed for some time now the trajectory of justice in the United States with growing concern. We have marked the departure of this system from the noble ideals in which it was born and enshrined. We have seen the erosion of due process, the dilution of constitutional rights, the usurpation of the rightful authority of courts by the “discretion” or prosecutors. We have seen how the law is wielded less and less to uphold justice, and more and more to exercise control, authority and power in the interests of oppression or personal gain.
Right from the start, let me say on the record that this statement from Anonymous is 100% accurate and true. Over the last few years, the U.S. government has become an outright tyranny. It is now obvious that the entire Homeland Security apparatus that we were told was being built for “terrorists” was actually being constructed to spy on and suppress American citizens. The armed government raids on raw milk producers, home farms, vitamin companies, ministries and other innocent operations have reached a point of insanity. And now, the government wants to disarm the American people, creating a monopoly of force in the hands of the government itself.
These are all red flag signs that freedom is being suffocated in America, and in its place a totalitarianistic regime has been erected and rolled out.
Aaron Swartz was only the latest victim of an out-of-control federal government whose prosecutors seem to take great pleasure in destroying as many innocent lives as possible. Swartz was facing 50 years in prison for the “crime” of downloading academic papers from servers at MIT — the very same papers that were freely distributed to other students of the school. Only in a totalitarianistic police state could “downloading academic documents” earn a person 50 years in prison, and it is the outright insanity and absurdity of this situation that apparently motivated Anonymous to take this action against the government.
It also appears that the US government is all but defenseless against Anonymous, a group that seems capable of locating secret documents and taking over websites at will.
Secret documents soon to be made public
In addition to taking over the US government website, Anonymous also says it has copied “secret information” that it may choose to make public.
As of the time of this writing, I could not find any details on what these documents might contain, but given that virtually everyone in the highest levels of government today is an outright criminal running various scams and rackets, the documents are bound to be extremely embarrassing to the government.
Anonymous describes them as follows:
The contents are various and we won’t ruin the speculation by revealing them. Suffice it to say, everyone has secrets, and some things are not meant to be public.
At a regular interval commencing today, we will choose one media outlet and supply them with heavily redacted partial contents of the file. Any media outlets wishing to be eligible for this program must include within their reporting a means of secure communications.
America is an occupied nation
For the record, Natural News acknowledges that the United States of America is now an occupied nation taken over by an illegitimate cabal of traitors and infiltrators who are seeking to dismantle all the rights, freedoms and protections put in place by our Founding Fathers. We seek the restoration of due process, personal privacy, individual liberty and wholesale freedom. We seek the outright repeal of the Patriot Act, the DMCA, the NDAA and other extremely abusive laws which characterize the criminal regime currently occupying the highest levels of government.
We do not endorse violent revolution but, instead, advocate truth-telling, whistleblowing and exposing the lies and deceptions of the current regime rather than attempting to restore the Republic by force. We believe in the power of the People to overcome oppression, and we believe that information should be set free.
I previously wrote about the death of Aaron Swartz, characterizing it as a government murder. The sad part is that the attempted prosecution of Swartz is just one of a long train of abuses against the people that have been committed by this tyrannical regime in Washington D.C. I can’t even tell you how many small businesses, ministries and nutritional companies have come to me privately, off the record, with their horror stories of being threatened and intimidated by the FTC (yes, the FTC) into signing “consent decrees” where they are forced to admit to “crimes” they never committed (such as selling “adulterated drugs” which were actually nothing more than cherry extracts). The FDA is also engaged in extortion rackets.
Underneath the manipulative language of Obama, the federal government today has become a destructive, abusive dictatorial regime that’s rife with abuses of power. I’ve seen criminals run free and innocents get thrown in prison. Prosecution of crimes in America is now completely subjective and nonsensical, and the only people targeted with criminal indictments today are those individuals who the system is trying to silence or eliminate.
America has become a nation of mafia-run justice, where the mafia is the government. Anonymous gets that, and its members seem dedicated to striking back against the empire using whatever tools are available.
Now you know why Feinstein, Obama and Biden are trying to completely disarm the American population: They don’t want people to be able to fight back against the massive rollout of dictatorial tyranny they have planned for America. But it’s now apparent that the illegitimate criminals who are trying to take over America are facing resistance at every turn: information resistance, political resistance and even resistance by force if you believe some of the blogs people have posted where they swear they would rather die than give up their guns to the government.
I can’t help but think the U.S. government has vastly underestimated its electronic vulnerabilities. It seems to be trying to roll out tyranny by following in the footsteps of people like Adolf Hitler, but it does not realize that the next revolution for freedom is likely to be an electronic revolution rather than a physical one. Guns are important for liberty, but principled hackers are the real game changers.
It’s hard to tell the CIa-mIT from the Q-tel anymore but must see the e-NONOMOUS as one or either. All efforts to give the benefit of doubt to them is met with glaring questions of what and where they target their attcks.
This IP PAETEC Communications is a major player in DoD communications and Virginia (likely Langley) yet they hack USSM? Sounds fishy, when there are major warheads flying right now. Is this another i-distraction?
I think certainty is allowed here… If you go by there has to date not been a “grass roots movement” or any other uprising that HAS NOT been without the eventual infiltration and take over by the cabal. Besides, how can they support Wikileaks when its been obvious for a long time now that its a cabal undertaking? controlled leaks, disinfo, Rothschild sponsored.
A distraction? But what kind of distraction? There are so many incidents going on, one distraction gets lost in another. Besides Anonymous is not given huge msm attention. After their latest hacking, one would think it would. It’s as if they don’t want to give this particular story airtime. The sheeple in general won’t hear this video or are even aware of Anonymous.
Could they be another govt op ? of course… do I think they are? Don’t know for sure but it’s not hard for me to believe they are legit. Aaron was suicided, no doubt in my mind about that. Anon could be a network of Aaron type geniuses when it comes to computer programs and hacking that are really pissed off. Especially after the murder of one of their own, Aaron Schwartz.. They could very well be exactly who they present themselves to be. A group dedicated to truth and justice and keeping the internet open and free.
I really get inspired by their “broadcasts”. This one in particular since it includes a famous line from one of my favorite movies “War Games.” .. “The only winning move is not to play”. The bastards have been “playing” far too long. It’s nice to think that there may be some very good chess players on our side that can put the winning moves on the bastards.
I know, I’ve used the tune recently but as the line goes
“Paranoia runs deep”
“Into your life it will creep”
“It starts when you’re always afraid”
“Step out of line the man comes and takes you away”
Consider the possibility, as in the forces of nature
Yin & Yang
Nature abhors imbalance
Imagine the forces gathering on both sides of the balance.
Just maybe a glimmer of light?
What Anonymous can do is as simple as what 911 did for the global WOT-WTO.
If they are legit, they are playing a war game with sticks and stones. How can anyone think they can fight the system using relics of antebellum. Orwell could only conceive the notion of prolefeed. We can imagine much more in the e-realm today looking at the wi-fi-psy and advancement in the googleplex.
More of the obvious for those that see the obvious

Scam Complete: The US Government Takes A Page From Diocletian’s Book…
January 25, 2013
Simon Black, Sovereign Man blog
Early in the 4th century, Emperor Diocletian issued an infamous decree to control spiraling wages and prices in the rapidly deteriorating Roman Empire.
As part of his edict, Diocletian commanded that any merchant or customer caught violating the new price structures would be put to death.
This is an important lesson from history, and a trend that has been repeated numerous times. When nations are in terminal economic decline, governments will stop at nothing to keep the party going just a little bit longer.
I thought of Diocletian’s desperation a few days ago when I read about the recent sanctions imposed on US rating agency Egan-Jones. It’s a similar story–
For years, major rating agencies (S&P, Moody’s, and Fitch) have championed the outright fraud of our financial system by pinning pristine credit ratings on insolvent governments and their heavily inflated currencies.
In doing so, the rating agencies are effectively claiming that the greatest debtor that has ever existed in the history of the world is nearly ‘risk-free’.
Clearly this is a ridiculous assertion. With a debt level over 100% of GDP, the US is so broke that the government must borrow money just to pay interest on the money it’s already borrowed. They’ve lost over a trillion dollars a year since 2008, yet they still spend money on things like drones and body scanners. It’s crazy.
As with any good scam, the government must maintain public confidence. The moment someone says ‘the Emperor has no clothes,’ that shallow, fragile confidence will come crashing down and expose the scam. Dissent must be vigorously and swiftly pursued.
So when S&P finally downgraded the US one notch in August 2011, the SEC and Justice Department announced that S&P was under investigation, just two weeks later.
Egan-Jones, a smaller rating agency, has been even more aggressive, downgrading the US credit rating three times in 18 months. And while the federal government may not have imposed Diocletian’s death penalty, they are just as willing to squash dissent.
In a country that churns out thousands of pages of new regulations each week, it’s easy to find a reason to go after someone. As you read this letter, in fact, you are probably in violation of at least a dozen regulatory offenses.
In the case of Egan-Jones, the SEC brought administrative action against the agency within two weeks of their second downgrade. And a few days ago, the case was settled.
I’m sure you have already guessed the ending: Egan-Jones is banned from for the next 18 months from rating US government debt. They’ve effectively been silenced from telling the truth.
The lesson here is obvious. Just as in Roman times, bankrupt nations today will stop at nothing to keep up the scam just a little bit longer.
Given that all this is happening at a time when Congress is voting to suspend the debt ceiling entirely, these actions are the clearest sign yet of just how desperate the government has become.
