This one came in an email with title: “URGENT ALERT: Patriots are being set up – PLZ FWD” signed by Bob Powell1 editor of The Truth is Viral blog.
The Obama administration will apparently stoop pretty low in an attempt to save itself from an inevitable implosion, even to the point of planting child porn on the computers of unsuspecting Patriots. They know that they are doomed, and what is the old maxim, "If you can’t kill the message kill the messenger"?
We ALL know what is coming folks. A good many of the talk show hosts that receive this message are dedicated to spreading the truth about this vile, murderous, and, IMO, Satanic administration in their own way, some of you don’t even believe in God; but we are all being targeted in one way or another because each of us has a piece of the puzzle. Just because you haven’t gotten a visit yet doesn’t mean that you won’t in the near future.
The original source of the story (itself poorly substantiated) is two self-reported incidents of anonymous porn-invested emails (watch video starting at 1:30), neither of which targeted talk show hosts or resulted in visits by government agents. These were amplified by the repetition of rumor into an attack on patriots and talk show hosts by the Obama administration.
The email ends with this advice:
My advice? Get right with God, and in the meantime, be VERY careful about opening email attachments.
I can’t fault that advice. I never open email attachments from strangers, and for that matter I don’t open email attachments from friends and family unless I’m expecting them, or they make sense in context—because with all of the address book hacking these days, I get lots of forged emails from friends and family.
If you do get child porn attached to an email, delete it or better report such emails to the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children tip line that will forward your report to appropriate law enforcement.. You’re not going to get a knock on your door just because a junk email you received has child porn in it. But by all means don’t collect them and burn them onto a DVD! That’s evidence of intent to possess. And by double all means, don’t forward it to everybody in your address book and tell them to forward it to everybody in their address book.
1I cannot be absolutely certain that the email actually came from Bob Powell.
