Skip to comments.U.S. Wants Broader Internet Wiretap Authority (More Intrusion from the One)
Posted on 09/27/2010 7:03:18 AM PDT by LUV W
The Obama administration is developing plans that would require all Internet-based communication services -- such as encrypted BlackBerry e-mail, Facebook, and Skype -- to be capable of complying with federal wiretap orders, according to a report published Monday.

Just more “open-ness” from our “leader”...PING. We become spies for the One?...or he spies on us? Either way......
This is the third article posted today about this subject.
I don't know which one will survive, so I'm pinging them all.
Here they go again. Cheney and Bush just want to listen in on our private conversations....
oh, what? What’s that? This is the Obama administration. Oh, well, I am sure we’ll similar outrage throughout the media on this issue.
Awaiting the liberal outrage. 3..2..1..0...0...0..1...2..3... (sound of crickets chirping)
Obummer will find this new ability very handy leading up to 2012.
Thank you...I searched for it but didn’t find anything, so
went for it. :)
Well i understand wanting to monitor terrorist communications, and i DO realize that facebook is the way many many people communicate. I just have one innocent question; Islamic Terrorists,,Isn’t Obama on their Faceook “friend” list already?
I closed my FB account. It was already getting too weird.
Another interesting development is All the stores issuing cards that give you discounts. They all have them:CVS, Office Depot, etc. They swipe your card every time you make a purchase and allegedly give you discounts, BUT they also make a record of everything YOU BUY!
Perhaps conservatives, who were at sleep at the switch on these privacy issues when Dubya reigned, are finally rousing themselves.
Oh, yeah...we’re being tracked daily everywhere we go. Spooky!
I’m waiting to hear the “Well, if you’re not doing anything wrong, you’ve got nothing to worry about...” line.
Just the next natural step in establishing a police state.
Bush, Clinton, Bush Jr, Obama all are going in the same direction. Know your customer and all
Problem is...what is “right” for a private person to communicate might not
be considered so when you (the administration) are looking for dissension from
your opponents (like conservatives).
Lol, yeah right. That would admit being wrong and just carrying the water.
Hopefully, November elections will establish that this never becomes a reality. I can’t wait for November.
This mirrors the big battle that was going on between Blackberry and the Government of India. Indian security forces were concerned about Islamoterrorists using Blackberry to communicate, and the data being out of subpoena reach on servers in Canuckistan.
Come and get us. We dare you.
That’s done most of the time for reasonable marketing purposes.
Well, we aren’t India....and there IS a “fine line” that
is totally unconstitutional here in our great country.
We need NOT cross that line.
I can’t WAIT for November...hopefully new leadership in
Congress will halt some of these intrusions that the Zero
wants in his new “transparent” administration!
What about the operations that collect blood from donors. Many of the blood donors are good people, conservatives who want to reach out as Christians to help all. Their personal data, indexed by mandatory SSN collection, into databases of medical institutions. For all we know they maybe selling or providing info to insurance companies and using data, DNA data maybe too, unknowiingly against us.
I stopped giving blood because they refused to let me have a photocopy of the documents they made me sign. What other place in our world gets away with denying us copies of what we are required to sign? What is buried in these secretive one-sided agreements.
Any freeper here have a copy? Can you cross-out the personal data and scan to post and share?
Where’s the outrage from the media? Just like the outrage over Bush and “wiretapping.”
Well, the media is NEVER outraged at anything the left does...
because they are the left’s best ally and co-conspiritor.
We have Fox (sometimes)...and our forum here to make sure that the truth exists!
Your liberties are fading away all in the name of....war on terror, war on drugs, war on drunk driving, war on crime.
The ever increasing growth of Uncle Sugar in all aspects of American lives from entitlements to diet control. From smoking to energy usage, from healthcare to what automobile you will drive.
It is so subtle yet so controlling. Americans have laws stacked on top of laws. Redundant regulation, over taxation.
Absolute power corrupts absolutely.
Folks, we'd better wake up and demand smaller government! http://www.endofamericamovie.com/about-film/10-steps-that-close-an-open-society
Yeah, good one! Of course if you are a Freeper, Tea Tarty type, Rush fan, conservative .... then you are already doing something wrong and Obama can track you down.
They good news is they may be overreaching.
“Perhaps conservatives, who were at sleep at the switch on these privacy issues when Dubya reigned, are finally rousing themselves.”
CALEA was passed by a demo majority congress, signed into law by Clinton.
Bush grabbed the football, and ran to the 1 yard line. Obama intends to score a touchdown.
CALEA by Clinton. FISA upgraded by Bush no court oversight, executive privilege. Patriot Act by Bush.
Though Obama cried foul against Bush and Cheney, now that he sits in the drivers seat, he intends to upgrade, yet again, with more regulations and more powers for the executive.
These unconstitutional executive surveillance powers, executed without court oversight, merely uses terrorism as the excuse. The bottom line for all these unconstitutional powers is for the fed to have the ability to keep all Americans under their watchful eye.
The question is why?
All the grocery stores also give you some big discounts on food, if you use your card...............
all this does is make the system 'legal' ...
FNC is about to have a segment on this situation (they just said, ‘soon’ - but it could be after 20 other segments, and 30 commercials.) But, at least it is being broadcast on a national channel.
Thanks for the ping!
Good to know...we are on the cutting edge! LOL!
I hope this notion is squashed before it just gets too hard
to have private communication!
Thank GOD for FReeRepublic!
FR, FNC, Rush, Beck, Hannity, Malkin and others who expose the vile movements of this administration, will be the first to be seriously hit, I fear.
But when Bush wanted to trace e-mail, that wasn’t right.
These asswipes have been tracking emails and internet correspondence since the 90's. This is just a way to make them "appear" to do it lawfully.
We have a government that is blatantly violating damn near every constitutional right we have.
THIS TOO SHALL BE RESOLVED IN THE NEXT REVOLUTION! IT CAN'T COME FAST ENOUGH!
Pay with cash or money order, never use your real name when you sign up for anything on the internet. I could go on an on. If you want to remain anonymous online, it’s not that hard to do. Always use a proxy too.
So sign up with a bogus name, just like ACORN voter registration. Personally I don't do business with anybody that requires me to carry their plastic for a "sale price." Got enough stuff in my pockets without their crap.
Remember that the Patriot Act was 98% identical to the proposal of Janet Reno. When a Democrat propsoes it most Democrats support it. When a Republican proposes it most Republicans support it.
Everyone tends to think that only the other side will abuse the power. Maybe the FBI sweep during Obma’s watch of self-described anti-war protestors will wake some on the left up to the reality that a powerful centralized government is intrinsically a danger to our freedoms and it is not a partisan issue.
(Whether I know all the details of the FBI sweep is irrelevant. What is relevant is the reaction of the activists.)
The short answer is “yes”.
Me too, last year. And I would never support that movie either, celebrating how they're tracking us (you know, without coming out and saying it, of course).
Everybody is going to need SSL websites.
I notice Wikipedia has done that.
I have been reading about that, but am not sure exactly what it means. I am kind of an internet dork. LOL!
Secure Socket Layer (SSL, HTTPS) is an encrypted internet protocol used for business transactions so that servers between you and the website, including your ISP, cannot read the data (like your CC number) being transferred. But it is increasingly being used for general privacy such as the search engine Startpage: https://www.startpage.com/
Thanks for the info. I need to study this further! We have
to protect ourselves when government ceases to. Who trusts
