War Game Imagines Obama on the Run

October 16, 2009 -

The year is 2011. President Obama has just outlawed the private ownership of firearms, announced that the Constitution has been dissolved and revealed that the United States is going to be replaced by the North American Union, an amalgamation of the U.S., Canada and Mexico. Revolution breaks out. Your part in this is to help capture Obama and the renegade Cong (former Congressional leaders).

This is the premise of a new online community and game calling itself United States of Earth. The extensive site is almost overwhelming in the sheer amount of information it provides, but centers around a browser-based war game in which a player can train and amass troops with the intention of taking over counties in Virginia. Players can also challenge other United States of Earth users in real videogames on Xbox Live or the PlayStation 3 network in order to win points to be used on the site.

Once logged in, users have access to a series of stories and videos that revolve around the fantasy setting, Stories include: Rush Limbaugh and Glenn Beck Found Dead in Camp, Barack Obama Retreats to Virginia With Wife, Former V.P. Joe Biden Captured Outside Arlington and The Cong Loses Control, Pelosi Captured!

Obviously setup by a right-wing oriented person or organization, the United States of Earth website domain is registered under contactprivacy.com, a service designed to protect the name of whoever registered the domain. The terms/contact page of the website lists what they call a “virtual office” in Brooklyn, New York.

Also from the terms page:

We take the Constitution of the United States seriously here and apply many if not most of the freedoms contained within to our own United States of Earth. It is a shame that America itself no longer safeguards its citizens freedom as we enter this next glorious age of collectivism and decay promised daily by those in power, Republicans and Democrats. Will America survive? Only time will tell.

Really, you've never heard that one before? Yeah, a real hoot, isn't it?

And let's not forget the oppressive "silencing of Christians!"

Re: War Game Imagines Obama on the Run

What's up with this new-found use for the "Zombies" tag? Historically, articles tagged "Zombies" contained a literal reference to zombies. This no longer - and somewhat confusingly - appears to be the case. Is the "Zombies" tag now being used as indicative of a reference to "loony assholes prancing around?" 

Re: War Game Imagines Obama on the Run

Yeah, usage was a form of commentary.

I will limit it's use in the future so zombie tag searchers receive clean results.

We retain the right to use the "WTF" tag as liberally as we like however.


Re: War Game Imagines Obama on the Run

Fair enough and thanks for the clarification. It is your lemonade stand. Thereby leaving you free to squeeze your lemons in any way you see fit.

Re: War Game Imagines Obama on the Run

Stories include: Rush Limbaugh and Glenn Beck Found Dead in Camp...

This is the most awesome game EVER.

Re: War Game Imagines Obama on the Run

Althou I hate those two with a passion I have to pass on that one. I don't like to wish death on people. No matter how much they deserve it.

Re: War Game Imagines Obama on the Run

We can dream, can't we?

Re: War Game Imagines Obama on the Run

Oh, but when people say in a facebook poll that they hoped that Obama would be killed, THAT is a big deal... >.> I'm fine with both, as it is FICTIONAL in both.

Re: War Game Imagines Obama on the Run

The reason that one was so huge, is because he is the freaking President. He's liberal, he's black. He's seen by opposition as everything from an immigrant to Hitler to the freaking Antichrist.

Secret Service does not mess around.

Re: War Game Imagines Obama on the Run

Yeah, but when the same thing was happening to Bush, no one seemed to give a fuck.  Isn' that just strange?

Re: War Game Imagines Obama on the Run

God you're an idiot... Hell I take that back, idiots would be offended by my comments.

Are you assuming that the Secret Service would of let someone kill George W. Bush. Maybr you're not that bright but even at this moment, he is being protected by the Secret Service. Right now even residents from his curreNt neighborhood have to clear A checkpoint to go to their homes. You can't expect to threat or incinuate that you're going to kill a Sitting or former president of the United States. In a couple of hours you're gonna have two agents getting in your face asking questions.


Re: War Game Imagines Obama on the Run

What I'm saying is that when people threatened Bush (and it happened repeatedly) the media didn't seem to give half a fuck.  Hell, barely anyone ever reported all the times when Bush was so threatened by crowds and so harassed by the same that they had to change routes.

Re: War Game Imagines Obama on the Run

So are you assuming that Bush didn't deserved all the crap he got? Like yapping about capturing terrorists while playing golf after 9/11 was such a positive image for him. Bush was being threatened because of his arrogance and Obama is being threatened because a bunch of inbred white folks are pissed off. Look at the current rethoric and tell me that some (if not most) of it isn't based on race. I am a conservative myself and I doesn't take a Ph D. to to realize that the current guard of the Republican Party is  so out of whack that it makes me shiver at the aftermath in 2010 if somebody doesn't grab a hold of the party and puts it in the right path.... And please don't you dare to mention Sarah "the MILF" Palin cause she is part of the current cancer that plagues the party.If the party thinks that by feeding the neo-cons is gonna win elections they're gonna get a rude awakening after the mid-terms.

Re: War Game Imagines Obama on the Run

Maybe it has to do with the fact Obama is receiving more threats than any other president has?

Re: War Game Imagines Obama on the Run

Do you really believe that?  After all the bullshit that Bush went through?  Because somehow, I doubt it.

Re: War Game Imagines Obama on the Run

What bullshit did Bush go through that he did not bring upon himself?  Saddam was hung, and he didn't even have the weapons.  Bush invaded a country and hasn't been hung.  So I don't think that he is doing so bad all things considered.

Re: War Game Imagines Obama on the Run

Meh.  This is the same kind of kookery we saw the last 8 years when the left was preparing us for an American Theocratic Nazi state- all starting with George W. plotting the 9/11 attacks. 

This game is based off of the same idiocy that we saw the last 8 years...only with the sources reversed. 

People thinking Obama will outlaw legal gun ownership is about as rational as those who were insisting George W was going to reverse Roe vs Wade. 

Re: War Game Imagines Obama on the Run

"preparing us for an American Theocratic Nazi state- all starting with George W. plotting the 9/11 attacks."

Actually, I would like to correct you. It has been going on for much longer. Most agree the real start of the New Religious Right was actually the late Jerry Falwell's group, the Moral Majority, which lasted for about a decade, starting in the late 1970s.

Re: War Game Imagines Obama on the Run

Lautenberg (D-NY) was making some interesting strides towards using that DHS list of 'probable domestic terrorists' to create some truly frightening legislation that would deny most rights to people placed on a 'terrorist watch list', who would never be informed that they were ON the list.

Also, there's a lot of fear that he may sign a treaty or pact with the UN or the OSA (or whatever the acronym is for all those South American countries) that would outlaw individual gun ownership.

Re: War Game Imagines Obama on the Run

Yeah, and 30 Republican congressmen voted against an amendment to a bill, that would:

"To prohibit the use of funds for any Federal contract with Halliburton Company, KBR, Inc., any of their subsidiaries or affiliates, or any other contracting party if such contractor or a subcontractor at any tier under such contract requires that employees or independent contractors sign mandatory arbitration clauses regarding certain claims."

Aka. protecting the employees right to file lawsuit. Oh, and the crime this amendment was based off of? The case of Jamie Leigh Jone. She was gang-raped, held in a shipping container, and then:

"KBR has moved for Jones' claim to be heard in private arbitration, instead of a public courtroom. It says her employment contract requires it."

And 30 Republican congressmen voted against it.

Re: War Game Imagines Obama on the Run

So, KBR had a contract that she signed which said that she couldn't see the COMPANY because she was raped.  Alright.  Is there anything in the contract saying she can't sue the people who raped her?  I'm more than willing to bet there's nothing there saying that she can't sue the individuals who raped her.  So, the company is protected from lawsuits due to actions of other employees.  Now, the fact that they tried to cover it up?  I'm sure that opens them up to a lawsuit.

Oh, by the way, many international businesses have mandatory private arbitration; it's less expensive for everyone involved, it allows people to attempt to have their grievance addressed, and people who go through arbitration, on average, tend to feel better about the experience than they do after a court battle.  Especially a court battle with a multi BILLION dolllar company. It's also a lot better alternative than having to deal with international courts and questions of jurisdiction.


Re: War Game Imagines Obama on the Run

Jesus Christ, how far to do I have to make this clear?

She could not go to public court. Period. The end, that's it. Do not pass Go. The end of the line. It is apparent you did not read the article well enough, if at all.

"In arbitration, there is no public record nor transcript of the proceedings, meaning that Jones' claims would not be heard before a judge and jury. Rather, a private arbitrator would decide Jones' case. In recent testimony before Congress, employment lawyer Cathy Ventrell-Monsees said that Halliburton won more than 80 percent of arbitration proceedings brought against it."

Yeah, feel better? My. Fucking. Ass. But it's no surprised you would defend this. So much for personal freedoms!

But thankfully it passed without those 30 GOP members, with 68-30.

Re: War Game Imagines Obama on the Run

There are a lot of things that are already illegal to formalize in a private contract.  Many of them being about signing away your civil rights.  (for example, you cannot sign an agreement to accept sexual harassment as just something to put up with, or to be beaten with barbed wire for missing your quota for the day)  The bill would have only expanded that to include "rape consent" clauses, so companies couldn't avoid the consequences of placing you in with hostile employees.

The fact that anyone would be against this, is not only hypocritical and ignorant of current contract laws, but also downright horrifying.  Seriously, we're talking about gang rape here.  I consider rape to be more horrific than murder, at least those victims aren't suffering anymore.  I think we should be bending over backwards to help rape victims in any way possible.  And regulating contract agreements is something we already do.  Particularly when we're giving a company government money.  Are they saying that the government shouldn't oversee its own contractors?

Re: War Game Imagines Obama on the Run

What's this?  It will go to court?  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jamie_Leigh_Jones#Pending_civil_lawsuit

My God.  Looks like you read one article.  Great work there, detective dipshit.
By the way, did she ever try to sue the individual who she KNOWS raped her (seeing as how she can't recall who else did)?

Re: War Game Imagines Obama on the Run

Yeah, after intervention. Otherwise, it would still be under Halliburton and KBR.

"On September 15, 2009 the 5th Circuit Court of Appeals in New Orleans ruled Jamie Leigh Jones' federal lawsuit against KBR and several affiliates can be tried in open court."

Yeah, and I'm supposed to be insulted on my detective work? To make it fair, it was only right above the very segment you linked to.

You know what, politely, you are simply ignorant. In truth? I think you are nothing more but a McCarthyist conservative, who would rather listen to the likes of Rush Limbaugh and Glenn Beck over an entire team of Ph.D. holding scientists that the global warming is a scam, H1N1 vaccinations are secret goverment coverups to implant mind-controlling microships into your body so you'll become the drone of the one-world socialist shadow government, and the Earth is flat.

Go back to your bomb shelter like back during Y2K, sunshine. You can keep arguing all you want, but your own inability to rationalize, or to even apparently process the logic behind opposing arguments, will only take you so far before you start to come off like, well, like you are now. Someone who is consistently beaten in a battle of mind, only to rely on strawman and obvious ruse, fill with more logical fallacy than Orly Taitz.

Don't worry, when I and the rest of my socialist friends take over the United States and create our fascist health coverage-for-everyone government, I'll make sure to let the rest of the death panel know that I give consent to killing you off quickly.

Re: War Game Imagines Obama on the Run

I don't know if you realized this, but the court is there for instances just like this.  She was denied a hearing, so she went to appeals court and, LO AND BEHOLD, the decision was reversed.  Looks like the courts still seem to be doing their job.  An intervention, by the way, still means its going to go to court.  Once again, you still haven't looked into if she sued the INDIVIDUAL who raped her.  Once again, great detective work.

And by the way, I don't know if you've noticed, but global warming is a scam.  That's why they changed the name to 'climate change' it's called HEDGING YOUR BETS.


Re: War Game Imagines Obama on the Run

Your comments prove just how deeply of an ignorant fool you are. And how lacking you are on such subjects. It becomes painfully obvious that all you are capable of is parroting as your defense. I'm going to say this as simple as I can.

If the courts had not interveined, she would not have been able to take her case to court. This is because of her contract said so. Could she sue the contractor? No. That would breach her contract. Could she sue an individual? No. It would still breach her contract.

The ending is not what is important in this argument. You apparently do not understand this. It is the fact that her contract said she could not go to court. It was the fact such existed. And the fact we are paying people who go this far.

With the words of Barney Frank: "On what planet do you spend most of your time?... Trying to have a conversation with you would be like trying to argue with a dining room table... I have no interest in doing it."

Re: War Game Imagines Obama on the Run

I saw that too. I loved the Daily Shows take of comparing the rejection of the bill to the Arguents that were made to stop giving ACORN money.

Pedophiles are the new Nazi / Communist. Labeling someone a Pedophile will get them blacklisted even though there is no evidence.

Murder is not a crime when done in self defense, a time of war, or when done by court order (death penalty). People cry murder when fetus are aborted. How about when the mother could die? The mother is 13 years old? The mother was raped? The child is a product of incest? Is foster care really the best answer for children who's parents cant take of them? How many children actually end up in foster care when their parents are dead beats? How many children suffer because their parents just dont want to take care of them?

A 14 year old is child when they have sex but is an adult when they commit murder?

Re: War Game Imagines Obama on the Run

Links, please.. I don't buy for one second your crap about the Terorrist Watch List.

Re: War Game Imagines Obama on the Run

Lautenberg's bill is here: http://www.opencongress.org/bill/111-h2159/text

And here: http://www.govtrack.us/congress/billtext.xpd?bill=s111-1317

One is the house bill, the other the senate bill

The NRA's take on it: http://www.nrapublications.org/a1f/AFFlead2.html

Personally, I don't trust Eric Holder to do his job (which is prudent, as he apparently hasn't been), much less to have so much power to decide what could reasonably be 'terrorist activity'.

Eric Holder, the same Attorney General who decided to let Malik Shabazz and his crew of thugs go after they threatened and intimidated people outside of a NY voting center, would be able to decide if people can purchase guns. 

Re: War Game Imagines Obama on the Run

So, your whole terrorist watch list bullshit was based on a bill that suggests that the AG would have the authority to prevent the transfer of firearms or explosives to known or suspected terrorists??

Becuase, you know, all terrorists should totally be given weapons..

Your whole opposition to this is the bullshit idea that the government thinks that all conservatives are terrorists. In reality, you are just a complete idiot.

Tell you what, I am so certain that that bill is nothing to be concerned about that, if the bill passes and becomes law, and the government restricts the transfer of firearms to someone who is not actually a threat, that I will never question your insane conspiracies on GamePolitics ever again.

Of course, both you and I know that your fear of this bill is pathetically stupid, and I'll never actually have to follow through with that promise.

Re: War Game Imagines Obama on the Run

It also gives him the choice of who is or is not a suspected terrorist.  The name of the bill is misleading: in 75 MILLION FFL transfers, only 865 people who can be rightly called 'terrorists' were EVER able to get a firearm.  That's 865 out of 75 MILLION.  or 865/75000000.  Obviously, these laws need to be changed oh so much.  Firearms and explosives are already regularly denied to people who are terrorists or might be terrorists.

Oh, and once he decides someone is a terrorist, they don't get to confront the evidence or the accuser, which means that they have to prove that they are NOT a terrorist to the same group that already called them a terrorist.  Yeah, that seems fair. 

So, a law that says you can't confront your accuser, don't have the right to know WHY you're being labeled a terrorist.  Hmmm, that sounds like a lovely time for Eric Holder to do things like deny firearms to people who are terrorists or might be terrorists according to the DHS memo.  You know, veterans, conservatives, members of the NRA, etc.

Maybe you should read the bills.  Or just one of them, they're both the same.

Re: War Game Imagines Obama on the Run

Like I said before, if there ever is a time where this bill actually comes to fruition and there is someone who is prevented from recieving firearms unjustly under the provisions in this bill, I won't ever question your unending fountain of Conservative Knowledge ever again. IN FACT, if I am wrong, and you, by some insane turn of events are right about Eric Holder and his nefarious intentions, I will volunteer to vote for whoever you want me to vote for in the election following this turn of events.

THATS how pathetic I think your inane ramblings are.

Re: War Game Imagines Obama on the Run

So, you don't care that not only can your 2nd amendment rights be denied, but your right to CONFRONT YOUR ACCUSER (you know, one of the basic tenets of our legal system) can be denied by this bill?  You're either A) an idiot or B) so optimistic it borders on insanity.  The problem isn't simply that the bill might pass (God willing, it won't), but that Lautenberg would right such a bill in the first place!  

Re: War Game Imagines Obama on the Run

Can I ask why you were never heard to complain about all the other tramplings of the "basic tenets of our legal system" done in the name of a "War on Terror" (a "War" which turned out to have very little, if anything, to do with actual "Terror") such as the right to speedy trial, the right to habeas corpus, the right not to be subjected to cruel and unusual punishment, the right to legal counsel, etc., etc., etc., etc?    

Re: War Game Imagines Obama on the Run

Funny story, I believe constitutional rights only apply to people in this country legally.  Not to people picked up from other parts of the world in the middle of, say, putting diesel on a road, peeling back that layer of softened asphalt, and then putting a bomb under it.

Having said that, I still think that the denial of a swift trial is a problem.  They were all given, eventually, access to an attorney (why, I even recall that the law firm employing Eric Holder did a lot of pro bono work down there for those people in Gitmo). I don't know if I would call spending time in prison cells at Gitmo 'cruel and unusual', though the actions of some individuals within the prison could be called that.

Re: War Game Imagines Obama on the Run

Actually, Austin_Lewis, the US Consistitution was created to govern ALL persons under its system.  Those who are in  the US of A and her territories.  All persons, who are: A) Legal US citzens B) Visiting through Visas C) Diplomats from foreign soil D) Illegal Immigrants E) P.O.W.s F) Terrorists G) Enemy Combatants. 

If someone came to this country on a work visas, and through events, murdered someone else.  They would be held accountable through a jury of their peers.  They would be given a lawyer they could afford, or one assigned if they could not.  They are considered INNOCENT until proven guility.  They are afforded human and reasonable treatment (including medical as needed).  They are not tortured, or otherwise abused.  If they cause problems, that is added to their list of problems for the court to handle.

Right to a swift trial has its roots in old European courts.  Go read up the history books on examples.  When you do, look under 'Spanish Inquisition'.


Re: War Game Imagines Obama on the Run

Regardless of what you believe and as evidenced by the rulings of the federal courts of this country, getting stuck in a cage at Gitmo does qualify you for all the rights and liberties of any other member of the community. That's not my belief. That's just one of those tenets of the legal system you were so concerned about before. 

But here is one of my beliefs which I will share with you: justice for some but not all is justice for none. 

Re: War Game Imagines Obama on the Run

Hmm, looks like they were given accesss to all those rights in 2004, after the courts decided that the fifth amendment did apply to them.

Of course, there's always been a lot of question about what rights terrorists have, ever since the IRA began fighting the British.  

So, if you truly believe just what you said, then surely you agree that Lautenberg's suggestions are both unjust and unconstitutional?

Re: War Game Imagines Obama on the Run

Suggestions are just that: suggestions. Unlike actaul governement actions and laws, they contain no legal force. Indeed, they contain no force other than the force to persuade. By definition, suggestions can be neither unjust or unconstitutional.

Re: War Game Imagines Obama on the Run

Way to dodge the question.  Fair enough though, I mean, its not like he sponsored a bill to try and do those things, a bill that would be unconstitutional in its current form. 

Re: War Game Imagines Obama on the Run

I don't often agree with you, but I do agree that a law limiting the purchase of legal firearms to people not on a some "Terrorist Watch List", which is maintainted without the accused being convicted of a crime in a court of law, is ridiculous and unconstitutional.

I do believe in some forms of gun control, like background checks and waiting periods, and I don't think the public should be allowed to own fully automatic weapons, but outside of that we have the right to bear arms, it is an essential right and it should not be tampered with.

The whole idea of basing ANY legislations on something as flimsy as the terrorist watch list is stupid. I do think that forgein "detainees" should be allowed acces to attorneys and speedy trials. I am pretty sure our gov. has played it safe and pulled in quite a few innocent hajis. Those should be allowed to return home.

Re: War Game Imagines Obama on the Run

Yep that is sufficent cause to make sweeping changes that would affect the masses, afterall the masses are sheep and beleive what they are told on the magic box.     As for rights... well those have already been shown denied by Bush Jr.  Would not be a huge reach to imagine them modified in the future.
