Edward Snowden is a hero for the American people. Thanks to Snowden, the average American now knows that the U.S. government has been spying on us to a degree that most people would have never even dared to imagine, violating our constitutional rights on a daily basis. Snowden gave up his high paying job, his home, his girlfriend, his family, his future and his freedom just to expose the monolithic spy machinery that the U.S. government has been secretly using against the American people and the world. Would you be willing to give up what Edward Snowden has? Written by … Continue reading Edward Snowden Is A Hero For The American People
Agencies such as the FBI would be required to obtain a warrant to access Americans’ data Legislation announced Wednesday would limit U.S. law enforcement access to data collected by the National Security Agency on American citizens. The bill, expected to be introduced by a bipartisan group of lawmakers this week, aims to reform Section 702 of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act prior to its Dec. 31 expiration. While the controversial section allows U.S. intelligence agencies to monitor and store data on foreign suspects abroad, Americans’ communications are routinely captured in the process, allowing law enforcement agencies such as the Federal … Continue reading HOUSE BILL RESTRICTS FEDS’ ACCESS TO NSA DATA ON AMERICANS
“You had to live—did live, from habit that became instinct—in the assumption that every sound you made was overheard, and, except in darkness, every movement scrutinized.”—George Orwell, 1984 Supposedly the National Security Administration is going to stop collecting certain internet communications that merely mention a foreign intelligence target. Privacy advocates are hailing it as a major victory for Americans whose communications have been caught in the NSA’s dragnet. If this is a victory, it’s a hollow victory. Here’s why. Since its creation in 1952, when President Harry S. Truman issued a secret executive order establishing the NSA as the hub of the government’s foreign intelligence … Continue reading Big Brother Is Still Watching You: Don’t Fall for the NSA’s Latest Ploy

This just in: FACEBOOK is providing user data to the Chinese military. If the Chinese were to ever be a part of an United Nations peacekeeping/martial law force, this should send chills up and down your spine. This means that as an occupying force, the Chinese would be able to form a naught and nice list with regard to martial law occupation. It is not far-fetched to believe that the Chinese will someday be a part of an occupation force under the UN flag. The United States government is a signatory to a treaty which will bring in foreign troops … Continue reading Facebook Is Providing “Red List” User Data to the Chinese Military In Preparation for NATO Led Martial Law
While Barack Obama makes the rounds pushing to disarm Americans using executive actions to bypass Congress and the American will, under Obama, “administrative” agencies including the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) which are among the dozens of federal agencies listed, are purchasing SWAT and military-style equipment like “body armor, riot helmets and shields, cannon launchers and police firearms and ammunition.” For years we have seen reports of agencies such as the Department of Homeland Security buying up and stockpiling ammunition and weapons as well as the disturbing reports of law enforcement agencies across the … Continue reading Locked And Loaded Under Obama – Federal ‘Administrative’ Agencies Preparing For Civil War?
In January 2014, during the scandalous aftermath of Edward Snowden’s NSA snooping revelations, one which revealed the US had been spying on its closest allies for years, Obama banned U.S. eavesdropping on leaders of close friends and allies and promised he would begin reining in the vast collection of Americans’ phone data in a series of limited reforms. Below are the key highlights from his January 17, 2014 speech: Our capabilities help protect not only our nation, but our friends and our allies, as well. But our efforts will only be effective if ordinary citizens in other countries have confidence that … Continue reading In Latest NSA Spying Scandal, World Learns Obama Lied Again; Congress Furious it Was Spied On
The NSA is ready to move ahead with a different program The National Security Agency will end its mass metadata surveillance program this weekend, two and a half years after Edward Snowden’s revelations. However, he NSA’s replacement “reasonable compromise” is far from being celebrated by privacy advocates. Signed into law this past June, the USA Freedom Act requires that by 11:59pm EST on November 28, the NSA must cease its bulk collection of telephony metadata. The NSA is ready to move ahead with a different program, also ordered by the law, at the same time. No longer will the NSA … Continue reading NSA BEGINS NEW PHONE SURVEILLANCE PROGRAM AS BULK METADATA COLLECTION ENDS
Efforts to protect the Constitution “may be fueled by our adversaries” CIA boss John Brennan said Monday violating the Fourth Amendment and eliminating the privacy of virtually every American will be required if the United States hopes to stop attacks by the Islamic State. He said recent proposed NSA reforms and a return to the principles enshrined in the Constitution will “make our ability collectively, internationally to find these terrorists much more challenging.” The CIA director mentioned the Islamic State. “I would anticipate that this is not the only operation ISIL has in the pipeline,” Brennan said in remarks delivered at the … Continue reading BRENNAN: 4TH AMENDMENT WILL ALLOW TERRORISTS TO ATTACK AMERICA
Against my better judgment, I often put my articles on Facebook. Lately, Facebook has been taking down my posts, particularly on topics related to World War III. One of my readers counted 14 sites saw my articles disappear. It is too late for me, but for most of you, you should consider not participating on Facebook. It is one more intelligence gathering tool designed to separate the sheep, from the independent thinkers! No matter how annoying Facebook’s censors may be, there are real dangers associated with posting and reading on Facebook.

The government needs—nay, it deserves—completely unfettered access to your personal information, because cybersecurity While nobody was watching, the Senate a couple of days ago passed something called the Cybersecurity Information Sharing Act (CISA), which passed at least partly because if you say “Cyber warfare, boogedy-boogedy!” around nervous legislators these days, they’ll pass a bill agreeing to have the NSA plant microchips in their spleens. The bill passed by one of those bipartisan majorities so beloved by Beltway pundits, 74-21. Now it goes to conference, and its final passage may be stalled because of the currently fluid state of the House Republican leadership. … Continue reading THE SENATE’S NEW ‘GIVE THE NSA ALL YOUR PRIVATE INFO’ BILL WOULD MAKE GEORGE ORWELL BLUSH
“Return to old methods (and) use the traditional postal service…” Image Credits: Cancillería del Ecuador. WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange has urged journalists to use regular postal services to thwart government spying. “My recommendation, for people who don’t have 10 years’ experience in cryptography, is to return to old methods (and) use the traditional postal service,” Assange said in an interview published Saturday. “Journalists are treated by intelligence services as spies,” he told the Belgian daily Le Soir. “The same methods used against spies are used against journalists, and now journalists must learn counter-espionage methods to protect their sources.” On Thursday WikiLeaks … Continue reading USE SNAIL MAIL TO THWART SPIES, ASSANGE TELLS JOURNALISTS
Big Brother gets nervous when little brother watches back While Google has become notorious for spying on Internet users, when Alex Jones attempted to film inside the company’s headquarters in downtown Austin, he was immediately asked to leave. Within seconds of entering the building for an event being held by Google, Jones and his film crew were told that the company didn’t allow video recording, despite the fact that a huge sign on the wall made it clear that Google was recording everyone in the vicinity. When Jones pointed out that Google had secretly installed software on computers that can listen to … Continue reading Google Freaks Out After Alex Jones Storms Headquarters
National Security Agency © / AFP A federal district court judge in Virginia has dismissing a lawsuit filed by the American Civil Liberties Union that challenged the National Security Agency’s mass interception and surveillance of Americans’ communications. Siding with the government, the judge ruled Friday that the nine plaintiffs in the case had not plausibly alleged that their communications were being monitored by the NSA. “Plaintiff’s standing argument boils down to suppositions about how Upstream surveillance must operate in order to achieve the government’s stated goals,” wrote US District Judge T. S. Ellis in his ruling. “In a case like this, plaintiffs … Continue reading ‘Turning a blind eye’: Court sides with government on NSA surveillance, dismisses ACLU challenge
We are a scant 40 years away from the futuristic world that science fiction author Philip K. Dick envisioned for Minority Report “The Internet is watching us now. If they want to. They can see what sites you visit. In the future, television will be watching us, and customizing itself to what it knows about us. The thrilling thing is, that will make us feel we’re part of the medium. The scary thing is, we’ll lose our right to privacy. An ad will appear in the air around us, talking directly to us.”—Director Steven Spielberg, Minority Report We are a scant … Continue reading ‘Minority Report’ Is 40 Years Ahead of Schedule: The Fictional World Has Become Reality
