Did Regime Time IRS News to Distract from Benghazi?

May 18, 2013


RUSH: Folks, we are being told that Lois Lerner's seemingly out-of-the-blue admission about the IRS tax-exempt waivers was carefully planned. The question that evoked her admission was planted as part of prepared strategy for the IRS to release this information to the public, and that's according to the outgoing IRS commissioner, Steven Miller. He said it in testimony before the House Ways and Means Committee this morning.

So Lois Lerner's out-of-the-blue admission about the IRS tax-exempt waivers, that was orchestrated to get that in official testimony. So this would seem to show that they wanted the IRS stuff to come out right at the point where Benghazi was starting to gain traction. That's the point of this. There were some people who laughingly suggested that the lid was blown on this IRS thing last Friday right when Benghazi was starting to heat up.

I remember a number of people called the program here and sent e-mails. They said, "Rush, this is an attempt to cover-up what's going on in Benghazi 'cause that's the real problem," and it is. The IRS thing, though, is easily understandable. The IRS thing, it's abuse of power. That's government overreaching. A lot of people can understand that. The Benghazi thing is still kind of murky, and it's a tougher sell to try to convince the American people that an administration didn't care about the lives of four Americans.

That's a real tough sell.

It's a real tough sell to suggest to the American people that the regime was incompetent, because everybody in this country thinks that the president of the United States, first and foremost, is concerned with defending America, saving Americans' lives, and is indeed competent to do so. I dare say that most people, low-information voters especially, think it's just automatic that every president is profoundly qualified to run the military. They just accept it. They can't conceive of anything else.

Such is the lofty image of the presidency itself.

It's not so much the lofty image of Obama; it's the office. So the Benghazi situation, that's a tougher sell. Bob Woodward is out saying that the talking point controversy of Benghazi is comparable to Watergate. He said, "I have to go back 40 years to Watergate when Nixon put out his edited transcripts of the conversations ... [I]f you read through all these emails, you see that everyone in the government is saying, 'Oh, let's not tell the public that terrorists were involved, people connected to al-Qaida. Let’s not tell the public that there were warnings.'"

Bob Woodward said this on MSNBC today. He said, don't dismiss this Benghazi, this is very serious, and he compared it to Watergate. He compared this to Nixon. I dare say (and I want to remind you again) that in all the e-mails that have been released, not one reference to the video, folks. Not one reference to it! In all of those e-mails, there hasn't been one reference whatsoever to the film, to the video, to the thing that irritated Muslims and so forth.

RUSH: Stephen Hayes. "What About the Video? -- So, what about the video? The White House last week released nearly 100 pages of emails detailing some of the discussions within the Obama administration that resulted in major revisions to talking points about the Benghazi attacks drafted by the Central Intelligence Agency. From the beginning, there have been two big questions about the [regime]'s deceptive spin on Benghazi: How were the talking points whittled down to virtually nothing from the CIA's original draft?

"And how did a previously obscure YouTube video gain such prominence in the [regime]'s explanation of what happened in Benghazi?" Hayes said he's looked
at all these documents. There's nothing in there about the video. They can't find it. Where did this come from? Two big questions: Where was Obama during the heat of the moment of Benghazi attack, and where did this video excuse come from?

RUSH: David, Export, Pennsylvania. Welcome to the EIB Network. Hi.

CALLER: Major dittos from western Pennsylvania and formerly Stockton cauliflower. Hi, Rush. By the way, we already have robots. It's simply an acronym for progressive liberals. They're everywhere. My question to you, Rush, is -- hopefully you'll expound on this -- is why is it seemingly so much energy is being spent trying to uncover the Benghazi -- uncover the cover-up of the Benghazi affair? What will it prove? They lied about a video. Oh, gee whiz.

RUSH: Wait, wait, wait, hold, hold, hold it.

CALLER: We already know that.

RUSH: Hold it just a second. I'm not sure I understand your question.

CALLER: I mean, so much energy is being --

RUSH: Energy by who? Energy by who? Republicans? Media?

CALLER: Congress, seemingly all these questions are being directed about the cover-up. Well, why are doing that? Shouldn't we be going after the initial causes, what led to this in the first place? Isn't that where the true culpability is?

RUSH: Well, that's why. The cover-up is an attempt to cover up why the right thing wasn't done.

CALLER: It's a deflection, Rush, it's a deflection. I mean, it's a low-concocted deflection. It's the cover-up of a stupid video. What does that prove? It doesn't prove a darn one thing, whereas if we uncover --

RUSH: Okay, then tell us how to do it.

CALLER: Well, if we go after what happened in the first place, what happened before the attacks, the neglect of responsibility, if they go after that, it will prove why the cover-ups even took place in the first place, but if you prove that there was a cover-up, what does that prove? Nothing. That's in my opinion. And I was hoping you would elaborate on that.

RUSH: Well, you can't get to what's being covered up until you dispatch with the cover-up. I know what you're saying. You think the regime is very cleverly and craftily focusing everybody on the cover-up to hide what really happened and then once they unravel the cover-up they'll stop going any further because they think they'll have had success in establishing that the Obama administration covered something up.

The cover-up was done for the same reason that there was no security before the attack, and that was to help Obama get reelected. Everything was about Obama getting reelected. The cover-up, the fact that there's no security, are one and the same, if you ask me. The reason there was no security was to make sure that -- they trying to prevent what happened. They're liberals, remember.

Let's go back to the beginning. What really started this -- we've gotta go back to Cairo. We know pretty much what happened here. The embassy, the State Department embassy issues an apology on the early afternoon of 9/11, 2012, before anything has happened. Nothing has happened. That apology apologizes for a video, incidentally. Two days prior to 9/12, 2012, the grand mufti of Egypt was rabble-rousing in a mosque, and he happened to, incidentally, mention a video that had been produced, that he had seen, that made him mad. It was a casual, almost throwaway portion of his main rabble-rousing. The embassy apologized. We were told it was a rogue employee who simply was overzealous and trying to prevent a protest. That's not all. The regime, the Obama administration knew there was going to be a protest. They apologized for themselves in that video in advance hoping to stop it. They believed if they just showed contrition, they were nice people, that the protest wouldn't happen.

The Obama administration did not want a protest. They didn't want an attack. The Obama administration's running for reelection. The Obama administration has told everybody that Al-Qaeda is on the run, bin Laden is dead, Obama has effectively beaten terrorism and the country's loved again. They don't want any evidence to the contrary. So they apologize in advance before anything has happened. Romney goes out, makes a statement, a presidential statement condemning this apology. "Why are we apologizing for our country again? We haven't done anything." The media then immediately launched into Romney and how un-presidential and how uncalled for it was and how presumptuous it was, Romney's not president, he's just a stupid, feeble little candidate, who the hell does he think he is. Then all hell broke loose in Cairo. And you had the protesters saying, "We're all Osamas, Obama." Well, then Benghazi happened, a planned, coordinated terror attack, which they all knew.

We know everything, David. We know everything. The purpose of the Obama administration cover-up is to try to get us to disbelieve what we know. The purpose of everything they did over there -- Benghazi was lied about to get through the elections. The IRS thing, lied about to get past the elections. Stevens went to -- ambassador went to Benghazi on a goodwill mission, they couldn't admit that they needed heightened security, they couldn't knit that it was a war zone. Remember, we had just kicked Khadafy out of office, supposedly Libya loved us, they couldn't admit that there were terrorists in Libya, Obama had defeated 'em.

What really happened in both Cairo and Benghazi was a blatant illustration of how wrong -- dangerously wrong -- Obama is, how dangerously wrong Democrats are, how dangerously wrong leftists are, how dangerously wrong these pacifists who get in charge of the US military are. They are dangerous. They are so wrong, Americans died. The truth about Cairo and Benghazi, it was oriented toward one thing: protecting Barack Obama.

If you doubt me, take a look at any media story from back, "How is this going to affect Obama?" Any media story. "How is this going to be affect Obama? How is this going to affect Obama's reelection? How is this gonna affect Obama's policy?" Not "Oh, my God, four Americans are dead. Does this regime know what it's doing?" There wasn't any coverage like that. The coverage was, "Oh, my God, how's this gonna affect Obama? How can we help that this not hurt Obama?"

That's why people are looking into this. There was blatant incompetence. There was political maneuvering. Four Americans dies to preserve an Obama campaign lie, and the cover-up was done to keep that from coming out before the elections, and even after. Four Americans died to preserve the Obama campaign. We know this. They are covering that up and trying to keep that hidden, and so the effort to uncover it all so that average, ordinary Americans understand it, is what's going on.



Congressman: IRS asked pro-life group about 'the content of their prayers'

Oops, Maybe Government is Tyrannical

May 18, 2013

Americans should know there is no guarantee of personal privacy with the government.

Less than two weeks ago President Obama stood in front of graduates from The Ohio State University and told them to reject those who warn of government tyranny.

“Unfortunately, you’ve grown up hearing voices that incessantly warn of government as nothing more than some separate, sinister entity that’s at the root of all our problems,” he said.

To young, idealistic people his words likely sounded insightful — until last week. That’s when it became officially impossible to deny that the government abuses its power for political gain... FULL STORY

The latest invocations of the Incompetence Defense from President Obama, Eric Holder, and now the departing Acting IRS Commissioner (hilariously described by the Associated Press as “ousted,” even though he’s leaving exactly when he was originally scheduled to depart, in June) hold that all of these super-genius leaders found out about various outrages by watching the news, along with the rest of us.

IRS sued for seizing 60 million medical records

May 18, 2013

A healthcare provider has sued the Internal Revenue Service and 15 of its agents, charging they wrongfully seized 60 million medical records from 10 million Americans.

The name of the provider is not yet known, United Press International said. But Courthouse News Service said the suit claims the agency violated the Fourth Amendment in 2011, when agents executed a search warrant for financial data on one employee – and that led to the seizure of information on 10 million, including state judges.

The search warrant did not specify that the IRS could take medical information, UPI said. And information technology officials warned the IRS about the potential to violate medical privacy laws before agents executed the warrant, the complaint said, as reported by UPI.

“Despite knowing that these medical records were not within the scope of the warrant, defendants threatened to ‘rip’ the servers containing the medical data out of the building if IT personnel would not voluntarily hand them over,” the complaint states, UPI reported.

The suit also says IRS agents seized workers’ phones and telephone data – more violations of the warrant, UPI reported.

The complaint alleges the IRS was “invasive and unlawful” and stole access to intimate medical records that included patients’ treatment plans and therapies, UPI said.

The suit seeks $25,000 in compensatory damages, per violation. The records’ seizure could impact up to one in 25 Americans, UPI said.

The long and short of it is that after after waiting for more than a year for IRS to approve his 501(c)3 application for the group, conservative activist Drew Ryun "determined that Media Trackers would likely never obtain standalone nonprofit status" and so he "tried a new approach," applying as a nonprofit under the name "Greenhouse Solutions" which was "a pre-existing organization that was reaching the end of its determination period."

Philip Klein: Obamacare's empress strikes again

May 16, 2013

In 2010, shortly after President Obama's health care legislation was signed into law, I dubbed Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius the "Empress of Obamacare" for the vast new powers she inherited. Reading through the text of the law, I counted more than 2,500 references to the secretary of HHS, of which more than 700 referred to instances in which she "shall" do something and more than 200 cases in which she "may" take regulatory action.

Back then, it was scary enough that any individual would have so many arbitrary powers -- from determining what type of insurance every American must purchase to deciding which insurers could sell policies on new government-run exchanges at what price.

Arming the Syrian rebels is the same as arming al-Qaeda


Unarguably the week's most grisly story must be the YouTube video that purports to show a Syrian rebel commander eating the heart of a captured regime fighter. Like so many of the atrocities in this vile conflict, it is impossible to verify for sure whether this really happened, or just clever propaganda put out by the Assad regime to discredit the opposition.

Either way, this grisly incident has highlighted the deepening concern among the Western powers about the rebel forces' conduct, and has prompted the British and French governments to call for Jabhat al-Nusra, the Islamist faction of the Syrian opposition, to be given the same designation as al-Qaeda, and outlawed as a terrorist organisation.

The Obama administration is making the case for conservatism better than Mitt Romney ever did.

May 16, 2013

Mistakes by Obama's administration have made
smaller government seem more appealing.

(SLATE) - It must get confusing in the IT department at the Associated Press: Are you talking about the hackers who hacked our Twitter account or the Justice Department hackers who hacked our phones? Monday, the Associated Press reported that the Justice Department had secretly obtained two months of records of phone conversations by its reporters. Meanwhile, the Washington Post revealed that the Internal Revenue Service’s targeting of conservative groups was more widespread than first reported. Someone at the IRS also leaked information about conservative groups to ProPublica. The Environmental Protection Agency may also have made it easier for environmental groups to file Freedom of Information Act requests than conservative organizations.

The Obama administration is doing a far better job making the case for conservatism than Mitt Romney, Mitch McConnell, or John Boehner ever did. Showing is always better than telling, and when the government overreaches in so many ways it gives support to the conservative argument about the inherently rapacious nature of government.

He pleaded guilty to 20 misdemeanor charges of illegally placing signs in medians and along roadways advertising quick tax refunds. County Judge Jeanette Dejuras Bigney fined him $3,400.

“It was probably the most obnoxious example of illegal signs we’ve had in quite a long time,” Orlando Code Enforcement Director Mike Rhodes said.

California: City of Oakland Seeks to Suspend 2nd Amendment

“Under AB 180, the City of Oakland would be given the authority to regulate the registration of firearms and licensing of gun owners—areas which are currently pre-empted by state law. AB 180 is a smart and sensible bill that empowers Oakland and provides local control in addressing gun violence,” said Bonta.

Revealed: The 55 Questions IRS Asked One Tea Party Group After Two Years of Waiting

May 14, 2013

Revealed: The 55 questions the IRS asked one tea party group after more than two years of waiting – including demands for names of all its donors and volunteers

Lengthy questionnaire arrived more than two years after the Richmond Tea Party applied for tax-exempt status

IRS demanded ‘names of the donors, contributors, and grantors’ and insisted: ‘Please identify your volunteers’

Tax collectors began in 2012 to scrutinize conservative nonprofits more closely than others

Documents show senior IRS officials in Washington knew of the practice as early as August 2011, but the White House says it learned last month.

Rubio's immigration legislation is Obamacare on steroids

May 14, 2013

Americans should get ready for the newest affliction from Washington D.C. This time it is in the form of immigration legislation. As porous as our borders are presently, this monstrous legislation will enable a deluge of immigrants to flow into this country. Marco Rubio, a Republican Senator from the Great State of Florida, is spearheading the push to move this legislation forward. Commercials have already appeared noting this legislation as a cure-all to all the prior failed immigration laws and policies that preceded it. Three decades ago one of our best presidents, Ronald Reagan, made a concerted effort to stem the flow of illegals from south of the border, it failed. Since then a hodge-podge of remedies have been attempted to bring sanity to the immigration process. They also failed...

The man, identified in a criminal complaint filed in U.S. District Court as Hussain Al Kwawahir, made his initial court appearance Monday on charges of altering a passport and lying to customs officials.

Al Kwawahir, 33, wasn't charged with any terrorism-related offenses, however, and U.S. officials told NBC News they were handling the incident as simply a documents case.

IT MAKES PERFECT SENSE NOW: ABC, CBS and CNN top executives all have siblings or spouses working directly for Obama

May 13, 2013

The Democrat Party and the media are indistinguishable from one another and it doesn't take much digging to prove it.

You knew the mainstream media was biased, but this is incredible. It was revealed today that CBS News President David Rhodes' brother is Obama Deputy National Security Advisor Ben Rhodes, who was instrumental in rewriting the Benghazi talking points. But it gets worse. It is now learned that ABC President Ben Sherwood's sister, Dr. Elizabeth Sherwood-Randall, is a Special Assistant to Barack Obama on national security affairs. But even this isn't it! CNN's deputy bureau chief, Virginia Moseley, is the wife of Tom Nides, who until February was Hillary Clinton's deputy.      EVEN MORE>>

Huckabee asked Smith if she was somewhat comforted by the congressional hearings about the attacks last week.

"Absolutely not," she said. "I am still waiting to answers to just about everything."

The Myth of a Moderate Obama

May 13, 2013

From the May-June 2013 issue:

THE GREATEST myth in American politics today is the view, perpetrated by the Democratic Left and elements of the news media, that Barack Obama is a political moderate. In truth he represents an ideology that is barely within the American mainstream as understood over two and a quarter centuries of political experience. Indeed, the crisis of American politics in our time is a crisis of political deadlock, and it is a deadlock born largely of the president’s resolve to push an agenda for which he has no clear national consensus.   KEEP READING

Arrest NOT impeach

May 13, 2013

The Dryer Report

Benghazi…MURDER, lies, and cover-ups…and ‘whistleblowers’ getting demoted for speaking the truth.

Cover-ups of the first degree. In fact, Senator Inhofe (R-OK) said that Benghazi “is going to go down as most serious, most egregious cover-up in American history.”

”We may be starting to use the I-word before too long” he added.

The thing is that the I-word is already being talked about but in the case of Barack HUSSEIN Obama and Benghazi impeachment is NOT the way to go.

In order to impeach a sitting president the House of Representatives needs a simple majority vote, but to obtain a conviction in the Senate a two-thirds majority (67 votes) is needed. Unfortunately, with the current Democratic controlled Senate this is NOT likely to happen, so the Republicans are looking forward to the 2014 elections to try to take back the Senate.

But another year is too long to wait to avenge the MURDERS of Ambassador Stevens, Information Officer Sean Smith, and ex-Navy SEALS Tyrone Woods and Glen Doherty. Too long and with NO guarantee that the Republicans will even take back control of the Senate for we all know that Obama will ‘fix’ the mid-terms with voter fraud and machine ‘irregularities’ just like he did in November.

After all, this time his neck is on the line…literally.

And even if he was by an outside chance impeached, impeachment gives credibility to his presidency and all his misguided policies and laws would still stay in place…something we surely do NOT want. Also, remember that once charges are brought for impeachment and they fail in the Senate, it’s over and cannot be brought back again.

The simple fact is that Barack HUSSEIN Obama can and should be arrested for treason under Article 3, Section 3 of the Constitution which states, “Treason against the United States, shall consist only in levying War against them, or in adhering to their Enemies, giving them Aid and Comfort…”

Meaning in NO uncertain terms that the betrayal of the United States of America by consciously and purposely acting to aid her enemies is indeed grounds for treason.

And treason fits Obama to a tee for this man NOT only sends monies to our enemies (like the Muslim Brotherhood and Hamas), but I believe that Barack HUSSEIN Obama was sending, without Congressional approval, guns and weapons to Syrian rebels, rebels with direct ties to al-Qaeda, got caught by Ambassador Stevens, who then had to be silenced at all costs.

Benghazi…a cleverly crafted plan that used the fortunately timed release of a ridiculous YouTube video as an opportunistic point of blame and for a time…for eight long months…the masses bought into it as the media covered for him…spreading his lies and covering-up the truth.

I’ll even go one step further and speak of a nagging feeling deep inside that Barack HUSSEIN Obama might have set-up the entire Benghazi attack to cover his butt, because if caught for illegal gun and weapons smuggling that would indeed be grounds for immediate impeachment and arrest.

And could it be even worse than that for dare I say it…I dare…but could Obama himself have been behind the video…could he have ordered it made for he knew he’d need a cover story…something he could blame if all hell broke loose…NOTHING would surprise me with this miserable excuse of a man.

A video to blame, that is until the ‘whistleblowers’ came forward with the truth and threw a wrench into Obama’s cleverly crafted cover-up story…a cover-up that Hillary Clinton knew about…was part of…and of her own free will went along with.

So my friends, impeachment is but a slap on the wrist and won’t do for Barack HUSSEIN Obama or for Hillary Clinton for that matter. Arrest, try, convict, and sentence carried out for treason, aiding and abetting the enemy, murder, and crimes against America is the way to go.

And along with Article 3, Section 3 of the Constitution there is a possibly that the military could arrest Obama and bring him before a military tribunal. A military tribunal is a military court designed to try members of enemy forces during times of war. A definitive case can be made that Barack HUSSEIN Obama, by his actions or should I say deliberate lack of actions in regards to Benghazi, is a member of our enemy’s forces.

And it’s also appropriate to subject a private citizen to a military tribunal if that person is being tried for treason, which would be the case with Hillary Clinton…a now private citizen who knew of the gun-running…who covered it up…and who lied about it all thus aiding and abetting the enemy.

Charges of treason against Barack HUSSEIN Obama can come in my guises, just a few of which are:

In 2009 when Obama accepting a foreign title and office while President without consulting Congress, he assumed the Chairmanship of the UN Security Council, the international body responsible for declaring war on behalf of the UN, thus being in violation of US Constitution Article I, Section 9.


Surrendering sovereign US war-making to foreign powers and international authorities by attacking Libya without consulting Congress, in violation of US Constitution Article 1, Section 8 (the War Powers clause) and U.S. Code Title 50, Chapter 33:1541-1548.


His consistent and blatant pandering to America’s sworn enemies in the muslim world is treason, the definition of which according to the US Constitution, is the aiding and abetting of America’s enemies. Remember, he is supplying arms, including F-16 fighter jets and Abrams tanks, to Egypt’s Muslim Brotherhood controlled government and sends millions to Hamas and Hezzbolah (terrorist groups with ties to al-Qaeda).


Adhering to the enemies of the United States, giving them aid and comfort, as witnessed by consorting with, supporting, and installing to powerful Federal positions persons who in writing, word and deed have called for and promoted the overthrow of America’s constitutionally guaranteed Republic form of government, and the overthrow of the United States Constitution; including but not limited to William Ayers, Bernadette Dohrn, Cass Sunstein, John Holdren, Van Jones, Dalia Mogahed, Harold Koh, and Eric Holder, in violation of US Constitution, Article III, Section IV and U.S. Penal Code, Section 2385.


Broke a law that he himself pushed and helped to pass as a Senator that provides protection for Inspector-Generals who do their jobs by investigating corruption, waste, and fraud in the federal government…as in why was there NO protection for the ‘whistleblowers’ as demotions were immediately placed against them for speaking out.


Refusing to secure our borders from illegal alien invasion, international criminal incursion, and terrorist cadre penetration, in violation of U.S. Constitution, Article III, Section 3 and Article IV, Section 4.


The list of crimes against America this man has committed is endless. And with this current Congress sitting back and doing NOTHING…with this Congress deliberately looking away at what Barack HUSSEIN Obama has done are they actually accessories to treason…just something to think about…just something to consider…just something that must be dealt with now and NOT in 2014…for by then the media will have locked its protective arms around their ‘savior’ even more than they already have.

NO…Benghazi must NOT be swept under the rug like Fast & Furious was…Benghazi must be the end of the road for this man and his miserable administration, because if it’s NOT the ‘blood on their hands’ might very will spread to the streets of America.

Pirate Bay Takes Over Distribution of Censored 3D Printable Gun

May 12, 2013

A few days after the blueprints for the world’s first printable gun were published online, Defense Distributed has been asked by the State Department to pull them down, citing possible arms trafficking violations. The blueprints, however, are still available on The Pirate Bay and many other file-sharing sites, which adds a 3D chapter to the IP enforcement debate.The Pirate Bay says it welcomes the blueprints and has no intention of taking the files down.

In late 2012 the 3D blueprint website Thingiverse decided to ban 3D gun designs, citing their terms of service which clearly prohibit files used to make weapons.

Enter DEFCAD, a site dedicated to hosting designs that have been banned at Thingiverse. Namely, the entirely printable 3D gun design which clocked up more than 100,000 downloads within its first two days of release.

This did not sit well with the Department of State Office of Defense Trade Controls who kindly requested that DEFCAD remove the availability of the 3D printable gun documents, enthusiastically named “The Liberator,” citing a possible violation of International Traffic in Arms Regulations.

In the letter from the State Department, which can be read in full at Forbes, the Government explains that it wants to review whether the designs are in compliance with arms export control laws.

While the attempted censorship of the 3D gun blueprints may come as no surprise, the popularity of these files is a vivid example of the daunting task faced by those charged with censorship of information.

While DEFCAD promptly complied with the request to remove access to the design, it was shared so widely during the short window of availability that it is now virtually impossible to prevent any further distribution. Currently, there appears to be several torrents available for the design at The Pirate Bay and the site informs us that these will not be censored.

“TPB has for close to 10 years been operating without taking down one single torrent due to pressure from the outside. And it will never start doing that,” A Pirate Bay insider told TorrentFreak.

Guns on The Pirate Bay

The Pirate Bay is not out to promote guns, but they do have a great interest in 3D printing.

“We think the whole idea of a printable object is interesting. You can print guns for sure, but even better you can print plowshares and other things as well. The problem is not the object but what you do with it. Just as with a cooking knife.”

The torrent site also says it welcomes Defense Distributed founder Cody Wilson to start publishing designs on The Pirate Bay. A year ago TPB launched a 3D print section where the blueprints would fit nicely.

“When Defcad is closed down there is still TPB. Cody is welcome to upload everything on Defcad to TPB as well, so the users can comment on the crap.”

“Cody Wilson’s site has been branded ‘A Pirate Bay for 3D objects’ which is kind of funny, since TPB has had its physibles section more than a year already, with lots of objects in there. And since the whole idea behind TPB is to not let outside pressure judge, TPB is prepared for things like that.”

The Pirate Bay insider welcomes a debate on gun laws and U.S. oppression of free speech. “We laugh at their gun love since it’s so obviously the wrong way to go.”

“We think that the good thing about the discussion about 3D printers and their gun laws might bring more focus on the double standards that the U.S. is having and hopefully – people will start printing signs to protest against the guns, the corruption and the threats against freedom of speech that the U.S. is pushing on us.”

For now the 3D gun links posted on The Pirate Bay are from unverified sources. Printing those might not be such a good idea, but it is clear that the original designs are not going away. All one needs in order to access these files is a hash, there is no longer a central source that can be shut down to prevent public access to these files.

This BitTorrent connection also gives the term Defense Distributed a whole new meaning.

The takedown of the blueprints could very well mark the beginning of an era where proponents of so-called cyber warfare begin using military resources in attempts to regulate a data distribution protocol which has, thus far, been impossible to regulate.

At the minimum, it’s the start of a crackdown on 3D blueprints, which will undoubtedly become more common as technology advances.
