FBI Redirects some of Survivalblog's visitors through CJIS, injects tracking cookie--


It has come to my attention that from August of 2011 to November of 2011, the FBI secretly redirected the web traffic of more than 10% of SurvivalBlog's US visitors through CJIS, their sprawling data center situated on 900 acres, 10 miles from Clarksburg, West Virginia. There, the Feebees surreptitiously collected the IP addresses of my site visitors. In all, 4,906 of 35,494 selected connections ended up going to or through the FBI servers. (Note that this happened several months before we moved our primary server to Sweden.) Furthermore, we discovered that the FBI attached a long-lived cookie that allowed them to track the sites that readers subsequently visited. I suspect that the FBI has done the same to hundreds of other web sites. I find this situation totally abhorrent, and contrary to the letter of 4th Amendment as well as the intent of our Founding Fathers. ...

Takes on an entire new meaning now...

And back to the sinister... what a way to ruin a great joke!

The majority of the populace remains willfully and blissfully ignorant of the fact that they are simply trained apes owned by the oligarchy. The act of voting is only another delusion to distract, similar to sports, controlled media manipulation, and religion. Nothing is ever “fixed” because “normal” is both mediocre and cowardly.

At least JWR had the balls to be truthful about it. You've gotta respect that. Do you think that Infowars would own up to something like that? Yeah right...  :shakehead:  :laugh:

I agree that it was forthright to point this out....

I would think that AJ at (dis)Infowars would love to have some evidence like this, he would have a broadcast orgasm over his ability to add more tin-foil to the hat...

I disagree. I think that AJ is more concerned with getting rich than his "public face" suggests. Revealing that information could lower his readership, costing him lost revenue in advertising. I could be wrong though.

A cookie is a text file that can only be read (presuming your browser settings are good) by the site wherein they originated.  Sure, the Fibbie site can inject some extra code into the pages you are being served, but if your browser is setup to ONLY accept cookies from the site you visit, and you were clever enough to block ALL scripts except from the site you requested, proxying the site won't be enough for the fibbies to feed you crappy code.  Just my opinion, I could be mistaken.
