Macsmind UPDATE

We've got everything moved to new digs and the DNS change should be taking place over the next two days. Here in a nutshell is what happened.

First, Hostgator Sucks. Probably the worst customer service experience I've ever had with a host and owning several sites with different hosting companies that is saying a lot.

On Saturday we were informed that was receiving a HUGH amount of traffic on the server it shared with others and in the *wisdom* of their tech people they just decided to remove our site from their DNS.

No warning, just did it. Macsmind when from 500,000 monthly to squat.

Hostgator couldn't advise where the HUGH traffic was coming from but from a glance a the logs over the weekend we could see the specific IP addresses responsible and I am working with the FBI to identify the people responsible.

But this is where it got interesting. Three of the IP addresses: , come back to

Why this is interesting is because in February I placed the youtube version of the video "Obama Wants to Disarm America" and over the last three months it received 1000s of views.

It's just interesting, but we won't know until we get through the trace routes and that's going to take some time.

I'll keep you posted on the progress.

Mac, something nefarious is happening. No, really.

One particular event comes to mind. It seems that within one day, at least six anti-Obama web sites were shut down, with no warning, but Google's web service. When Google finally got around to notifying the site owners, they said that it was due to the sites being considered "spam" sites. Over at AtlasShruged, the techguy that was trying to research Obama's COLB posted on DailyKos found someone had tracked him, threatened him and he found a dead rabbit tied to his front door. Other sites, not complimentary to Obama, have been hacked.

So while Obama has a disclaimer on his own site that he is not responsible for what is posted there, web pages "Friends of Obama" features anti-Israel pages, New Black Panter pages, etc.

There seems to be an attempt to silence anyone and any blog that has the temerity to look into Obama and his past or is less than flattering in their reporting on Obama.

The Google "shut down" never made the press. I would have not known about it except for the blogs themselves. But if this is going on, an attempt to silence anyone who presents Obama in less than a positive light, it needs to be told to the American public.

Calling Mr. Fitzgerald?


As I told you about in this post yesterday as a source confirmed to me that the Justice Department has launched a probe into the NSA leak. Mr. Risen, you are in trouble - prepare your defense. I told you so.

The White House will be announcing the probe at about 12:30pm. My source tells me that this probe will most likely result in another prosecutor being assigned as of course Fitzgerald is still busy/dizzy on the Plame/Game No-Leak. Additionally, other probes into other recent leaks such as the CIA 'prisons'leak is in the works as well. As I said, this is the NEW Bush - on the attack - it's no more Mr. Nice Guy!

About time! Also covering Michelle Malkin

UPDATE II: Looks like I owe my source big time as yet another tip comes true as the Washington Post is on the target list as well for the CIA Prison leak.

Newsbusters Busts the MSM on Bush Event

Newsbusters, the blog of Brent Bozell's Media Research Center, exposes the MSM attempt to spin President Bush's meeting with troops into a 'staged event'.

Truth is that the event was not staged, the troops were telling their real feelings: that they support the war and our President.

I guess they might have this story mixed up with the "planted question" to Sec. Rumsfeld back in December 2004.

Yet, that wasn't the case here, Soldiers when asked, will tell you the truth.

Just like in this picture, they tell it like it is!

Michelle Malkin has links to other reactions. Also Blogs for Bush.

UPDATE I: Michelle has a further reponse from one of the soldiers in the video. Here's an excerpt:

"First of all, we were told that we would be speaking with the President of the United States, our Commander-in-Chief, President Bush, so I believe that it would have been totally irresponsible for us NOT to prepare some ideas, facts or comments that we wanted to share …
