**The Federal Reserve Plans To Identify Key Bloggers And Monitor Billions Of Conversations About The Fed On Facebook, Twitter, Forums And Blogs**
The Federal Reserve wants to know what you are saying about it. In fact, the Federal Reserve has announced plans to identify "key bloggers" and to monitor "billions of conversations" about the Fed on Facebook, Twitter, forums and blogs. This is yet another sign that the alternative media is having a dramatic impact. As first reported on Zero Hedge, the Federal Reserve Bank of New York has issued a "Request for Proposal" to suppliers who may be interested in participating in the development of a "Sentiment Analysis And Social Media Monitoring Solution". In other words, the Federal Reserve wants to develop a highly sophisticated system that will gather everything that you and I say about the Federal Reserve on the Internet and that will analyze what our feelings about the Fed are. Obviously, any "positive" feelings about the Fed would not be a problem. What they really want to do is to gather information on everyone that views the Federal Reserve negatively. It is unclear how they plan to use this information once they have it, but considering how many alternative media sources have been shut down lately, this is obviously a very troubling sign.
You can read this "Request for Proposal" right here. Posted below are some of the key quotes from the document (in bold) with some of my own commentary in between the quotes....

They already know what honest, working taxpayers think of them or they wouldn’t want to monitor our conments and conversations about them
HOORAY zerohegde posters and FReepers!
They need to be particularly on the lookout for a fella named Emmanuel Goldstein or Winston Smith.
Anyone who doesn’t see the direction these Marxists are trying to take this nation is in full denial or totally stupid.
Big Brother IS watching you, and will be knocking on your door shortly - probably sometime around midnight.
You are slated for re-education, comrade.
Regrettably if the 80% of the population is incorrect, and the figure is closer to 50% (maybe) the slide will be quick next year. Praying your figure of 80% is correct.
For your consideration.....
. . . though the big boys have been monitoring ALL electricity based circuits with literally acres of computer for MORE THAN 40 years.
And there’s the story a decade or two ago of the high ranking Christian FBI agent who came across the red and blue lists . . . and saw that his name was on the red list—to be exterminated in the first wave.
THANKFULLY, THE BOOK OF LIFE LIST TRUMPS ALL OTHER LISTS.
When I was in Naval Intel, identifying a specific group and “following” its comms was considered to be a low level form of spying, legal but still a form of reconnaissance. I think it still qualifies as such.
Yes, Preppers, Military, LE, Tea party, Christian, non Zero fans, conservatives, and anti Fed, among others, are being logged and watched. People like us. If you are not giving money to Zero, you are on his list. Just ask Gibson Guitar or ExxonMobil or BP.
Progressivism is projectionism. They claim you hate, it’s them that hate. They claim you don’t care about your fellow man, it’s them that don’t give a rats behind about he/she who has fallen. They claim you are racist, it’s them that are racist.
The Leftist (lib) is not a whole, nor a moral human being, but a sad sack seeking comfort in destroying those who are.
Thank GOD they (libs) are a minority. Now let’s start acting as though they are.
“Does anyone really believe the massive security apparatus was built up over the last ten years was meant for scary looking Muslims?”
Once the financial collapse is here, their funding and interest in the citizen patriot will wane. They are unable to affectively subdue a nearly stone age group of nomadic goatherds and poppy farmers after a ten year occupation with an unlimited budget!
What chance do they have here given that track record?
I believe what we are witnessing today is the death rattle of the professional political class and its military industrial complex puppet masters in full panic mode as they see the productive classes in America pushing back against this huge parasite which now consumes 25% of our GDP. We have nothing to fear. Stay cool. Don’t let them agitate brother against brother in this country like they did in the 1860’s.
Host/parasite which is in the better position in nature? Parasite needs host and host can live better without parasite. Hum?
