The Piercing Truth

This is right from the dictionary and seems to describe Albuquerque, Berry and Schultz. Fascism (f ash ,izem) noun An authoritarian right wing system of government and/or social organization. (in general use) extreme right wing, authoritarian, chauvinistic and/or intolerant views or practices. Fascism tends to include a belief in the supremacy of one group over another, national, ethnic, especially social strata or monetarily; a contempt for democracy, an insistence on obedience to a powerful leader, and a strong demagogic approach. Compliments of one of our Eyes

Blacking Out The Eye?

Say it isn't so! The Eye has been covered at Albuquerque's Sunport! One of our indignant Eyes called to tell us that surfers at Albuquerque's Sunport are unable to visit EyeOnAlbuquerque.com when using Albuquerque's free Internet access. What's more, we're not the only website that is verboten. Seems that blogger Mario Burgos has also been banned from potential passenger consumption.

Could the Eye's blackout be an anomaly? Sure. Both sites are hosted by Google's blogger.com and perhaps blogger was blocked or unavailable. However, other Eye readers were able to access the Eye On Albuquerque at the same time, and the likelihood that any of Google's servers would be unreachable boggles (or at least Googles) the mind.

Could it be that members of the Chavez administration or the Almighty Mayor in Chief have taken offense? Maybe... we have been critical of the mayor and his minions on many different occasions; something that could also be said of Mr. Burgos.

These types of shenanigans (if shenanigans they are) point out the very real danger of "free Internet access" provided by the city. First of all government provided Internet access is anything but free - just ask officials in Rio Rancho (ABQ Journal - Subscription). The money used to provide this "free" service comes from... you guessed it, all of the rest of us.

Even more annoying is that if you have a politically motivated, ambitious, and vengeful mayor who also controls those who control your "free" access and then decides that you shouldn't be reading certain material on certain Internet sites; they have the authority to keep you from viewing the material. The communist Chinese think that kind of control over the Internet is a grand idea, we just didn't think any government official would have the gaul to try to pull that kind of stunt right here in the good ol' U.S. of A, even if the access is free.

I'll bet the new Airport Director Nick Bakas had alot to do with this!

Remember, he is a Marty minion that was banished to the airport so he, Bakas could cause no futher problems on the 11th floor.

He is one bad apple, if not the worst...

Didnt Hitler control what people read by burning books ? If we do not learn from history it will repeat itself. Seems like history is repeating itself starting right here at home in Albuquerque.

For those who remember the Soviet Union, might also remember 'Radio Free Europe', the radio network on the western side of the Iron Curtain. It was Eastern Germany's only link to the ouside world. If you were caught transmitting that netwok and it's contents you were bannished or put to death.
Similar examples now exist in North Korea.
The City of Albuqueque now joins the ranks of those dictators who don't want you to learn the truth and keep under wraps all the unscrupiously deeds that go down on the 11th & 5th floor.
Like Stalin and Lenin before him, our mayor is now controlling not only what you read in the paper and on TV, but also what they don't want you to read on the internet. "Heil Hitler" (Marty)

THIS REGIME NEEDS TO END!!!!

I would submit to you that there is a world of difference between Radio Free Europe and the "Lie on Albuquerque"

If the block was targeted at The Eye then it makes one wonder what is it they do not want people to see? Is The Eye considered a threat? Apparently somebody with authority thinks so...

Look at it this way, if they hate you and are blocking you, then you must be doing something right.
If they loved you and forwarded the link to all their friends, then you would just be another of the minions. I would take this knowledge to heart, and actually gloat over it.
And to all those who say that the "eye" is bullshit? The truth must be hurting like a bastard....!

Three up. Yes, no shit. There is a world of difference between Radio free Europe and the "Eye". So what's your point. I thought my point was made. Don't need the nit-picking.
Don't loose sight that this is sensorship, pure and simple.

What a bastard. Chavez is starting to sound more like Bush everyday day. He is so concerned with his political appearance that he only cares about his ideas and his thoughts. He is a total power hog with no respect for other citizens opinions. What is he thinking...I guess he is not. Scum Scum Scum.

The "Eye" is embrassing and leaves a terrible impression to anyone who might tend to believe the nonsense and lies posted on this site. Thankfully someone has enough professional courtesy to stop such idiocy. Perhaps this might tell you something about your beloved gossip blog. It is so obvious that the people participating in this blog are rejects and cowards who can't compete in the real world of a professional police career. Not able to achieve by (I don't know) maybe working hard, honestly and intelligently. Maybe there is a sense of accomplishing something by creating disention and lies, for you, but you have to live with yourself and the real truth will come out eventually! your a bunch of idiots and whining cowards. You are an embarrassment to Albuquerque citizens. I really feel sorry for APD's administration and the good professional cops working the streets and doing a good job. You guys are like the kids at school in dentention class who can't compete in the real classes. So you have to create a scene to get what little notarity you achieve by this "anonymous" blog. You sicken me! You should wake up and listen to people around you; you guys need some help!

Let's See If I remember, how does it go? Oh, yes.
Actung! Actung! The following will be observed at all times!. You will say "Hiel Marty, after every conversation as you leave the room".
You will also at the same time give the hand salute with right arm stretched out at a 45 degree angle.

You will leave the area with hobnail boots and a goose step.

They say, history repeats itself, and so it begins.

2 posts up, yes you heard it! Right from APD's 5th floor, so it must be the truth like everything else they put out. Schultz and Walsh or the other DC's would never lie,,,,,,,,NOT.

They lie to us and the public every day on facts and figures!

Get real guys...
The eye is a great informational tool. Politicians just don't care for it because it exposes their injustice.

If the infomation was not true, they would not get soooo mad!

Just like all the pasted bad supervisors that just retired, these won't be far behind.

We need new blood, new ideas, and an administration that puts the department and its officers before their own self interests!

We need supervisors at the top that have intergrity, honesty, and respect! We have not had that for the last 6 years. We need change.

Amen to that brother.

Our squad can't wait until these clowns retire.

Everyone of us has been screwed by this administration in one fashion or another.

yes, you said it all of the 5th floor needs to go. And the 11th floor!!

The whole squad has been disciplined? Damn, must be all rookies.

No,,,, just victims of an over zealous administation that manages by fear and intimidation because they can.

Their management philosophy is, "Do as I say, not as I do!

Their power is earned from fear, not by respect. Great receipe for poor morale within an organization!

I would love to see the KDT logs on the shift that houses the young 34's who I think are winning this particular, uh, argument? Are KDT comminiques between 34's public record? I think LA had a big hullabulo about some reporter getting ahold of their KDT logs and saying they were all racist.

To be fair - everyone gets to have an opinion in America. And cops need to have a place to let some steam out, being a 34 is stressful. But, DAMN, what ASSWIPE said anyone who expresses their opinion are "rejects and cowards who can't compete in the real world of a professional police career"? I am as tolerant as the next guy(maybe more), but if you are going to make such idiotic, unsupported statements then expect me to call you names and tell you to go back to whatever friggin' country in Europe your great great great grandfather came from, ya Nazi creep!

PS - Try reading the Constitution that you swore to uphold, dumbass.

PPS - Also, please refrain from contradicting yourself by typing things like: "So you have to create a scene to get what little notarity you achieve by this "anonymous" blog. " Hm - notariety means you have to know who typed it, genius. These guys are not leaving names. If you know who they are, then discuss things with them like a man, don't hide behind the same anonymity you allegedly deplore.
