Just a month ago we raised more than a proverbial eyebrow when we noted the creation of the NSA's Utah Data Center (codename Stellar Wind) and William Binney's formidable statement that "we are this far from a turnkey totalitarian state". Democracy Now has the former National Security Agency technical director whistleblower's first TV interview in which he discusses the NSA's massive power to spy on Americans and why the FBI raided his home. Since retiring from the NSA in 2001, he has warned that the NSAs data-mining program has become so vast that it could "create an Orwellian state."
National Security Agency whistleblower
William Binney reveals he believes domestic surveillance has become more expansive under President Obama than President George W. Bush. He estimates the NSA has assembled 20 trillion "transactions" phone calls, emails and other forms of data from Americans. This likely includes copies of almost all of the emails sent and received from most people living in the United States. Binney talks about Section 215 of the USA PATRIOT Act and challenges NSA Director Keith Alexanders assertion that the NSA is not intercepting information about U.S. Citizens.
Technology is a double edged sword. It makes our lives more convenient. It makes it much easier for government and corporations to track us.
I would venture a guess that you are more violated right now by google than you are by government. That may change in the future, especially if Obama gets 1-3 more SCOTUS appointments.
It’s a strange new world is’nt it?
Person of interest
When leftists start speaking out you know it’s gotten bad.
There’s a book I took with me on my tours in Iraq by Sir Robert Thompson, Defeating Communist Insurgency. AA very fast read - about guerrilla and insurgent warfare - but lists the actual steps they use to take out an opponent.
I suggest you get a copy and read it - it was my war bible over there and it saved hundred of lives when I put it into actual practice!
If you can’t afford a copy - I have a photocopy on my website...not a good one - but it’s there. The reason I say get an actual copy - the e-copies I have can be erased on an system...having an actual “printed” library is a must now a days!
Anyone that thinks the federal government doesn’t collect information about US citizens on US soil and abroad and without warrant of a crime having been committed hasn’t so much as looked at the faggot J. Edgar Hoover and his FBI that had files on all kinds of people. The US spends billions each year on data centers, satellites, and fiber optic taps throughout the country. Damned straight they collect information. All kinds of it.
They could “data mine” a decapitation of constitutional meme-molders very easily. Hitler, Stalin, Mao etc all had to arrest hundreds to be sure to catch the few genuine “enemies of the state.”
Now, they can accurately target just their most effective adversaries, leaving hardly a ripple in the national consciousness, considering that the same MSM that ignores mass-murder schemes like Fast And Furious will also ignore a purge of “right wing extremists about to launch terror plots.”
We will see this happen in our lifetimes, a data mined purge of patriots.
Leaderless 101 .......
Isn’t it interesting that Mueller’s name never pops up?
Interesting that Obama never replaced him or even mentions him.
