Police State Alert: U.S. Gov’t Gets Green Light to Continue War on Citizens and Privacy

leave a comment »

Over 12 years since the Sept 11 attacks, the U.S Government still fails at protecting airports, as we’ve seen with attacks at LAX Airport in L.A., and now two major security breaches at the Newark, NJ and Phoenix airports. Yet, intelligence agencies have been successful in hacking personal and business computers all across American and around the world.

Hmmm…

And now some federal judge has declared that all of the illegal hacking activities of the NSA (and by proxy, the FBI and CIA) are legal! Very interesting times we live in indeed. Notice in the article snippet below that the judge is using the actions of Al Qaeda as a justification for NSA activities, even though it has been well established here and elsewhere that the U.S. and its allies conveniently created Al Qaeda to have an excuse to dominate the Middle East and the entire planet. Let’s hope that someone with some sense takes this to the Supreme Court, and that cooler heads in the highest court prevail.

U.S. judge upholds NSA phone surveillance program

(Reuters) – A U.S. judge ruled the National Security Agency’s program that collects records of millions of Americans’ phone calls is lawful, rejecting a challenge by the American Civil Liberties Union to the controversial counter-terrorism program.

Friday’s decision by U.S. District Judge William Pauley in Manhattan diverges from a December 16 ruling by U.S. District Judge Richard Leon in Washington, D.C., who said the “almost Orwellian” program was likely unconstitutional.

The program’s existence had first been disclosed by Edward Snowden, the former NSA contractor whose leaks have detailed the breadth of U.S. electronic surveillance and sparked a debate over how much leeway to give the government in protecting Americans from terrorism.

In a 54-page decision, Pauley said the program “vacuums up information about virtually every telephone call to, from, or within the United States.”

But he said the program’s constitutionality “is ultimately a question of reasonableness,” and that there was no evidence that the government had used “bulk telephony metadata” for any reason other than to investigate and disrupt terrorist attacks.

Technology allowed al Qaeda to operate decentralized and plot international terrorist attacks remotely,” Pauley wrote. “The bulk telephony metadata collection program represents the government’s counter-punch.”

It is time to use the power of the vote to make sure we get citizen-friendly judges, not pro-NSA judges.

Here is an unfortunate casualty of the so-called War on Terror (aka War on Earth’s Citizens):

How economic warfare killed the People’s Bank

London Mayor Boris Johnson calls it ‘soft power’ but the big guns have opened up on Western civilization.

The ‘War on Terror’ is the mainstream media’s name for  the Western power elite’s crusade to destroy the very concept of  an earth freely given to its inhabitants. Driven by insatiability  for ever more power in the face of their own criminality, their  aim is to own the earth and everything in it. Even the millions  profiting from their Quantitative Easing (QE) now, in the casino  economy, are ultimately doomed to become their victims.

The call now is as stark as that declared by Britain’s wartime  leader Sir Winston Churchill on 18th June 1940: “The Battle  of Britain is about to begin. Upon this battle depends the  survival of Christian civilization.” The world had better  understand how it is being fought if Christian or any other  civilization is to survive the coming military, economic and  environmental crises.

This war is as much for the control of territory and natural  resources as any other, but much of NATO countries’ war fighting  resources are going into what London’s conservative mayor and  former member of Oxford’s elite Bullingdon Club, Boris Johnson,  calls “soft power”. Chief among these coercive  instruments are economic, psychological, cyber, SigInt [Signals  Intelligence] and space warfare. The shift to these new  battlefields is to wrong-foot two different ‘target’ audiences:  both the ‘enemy’ and the West’s domestic populations.

This shift in emphasis, by the military and commercial partners  they steal resources and territory for, signals the rise of the  totalitarianism the world hoped had been banished forever in  1945. All honest brokers are being eliminated: the post-9/11  world has seen institutions critical to national security, key  financial, military and cultural infrastructure all keeling over  in the cross-hairs.

Pentagon’s Information Operations illegally targeting senators

As foreign wars are failing, this 21st century war fighting  machinery, like the ‘Eye of Sauron’ in J.R.R. Tolkein’s   ‘Lord of the Rings’, is being turned against activists,  politicians and journalists in the domestic populations.

US Investigative Journalist Michael Hastings told an incredible  story when he returned from his 2010 trip, embedded with US  general Stanley McChrystal in Afghanistan. The Pentagon, he  revealed in his award winning book ‘The Operators’,  spends $4.7bn of public money annually employing 27,000  psychological operations, marketing and public relations staff  around the world. Their daily mission: to push the Pentagon line  into the West’s national newspapers and broadcast bulletins.

Lose The Burners: Court Okays Prepaid Phone Tracking

Appeals court rules law enforcement agencies don’t need a warrant to “ping” and track prepaid cellphone locations.

Prepaid cellphone users may be tracked by law enforcement agencies at any time, without police first having to obtain a probable-cause warrant.

That’s one takeaway from a 23-page ruling issued Tuesday by the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit. The ruling centers around a case involving Melvin Skinner, who was convicted by a jury of drug trafficking and money laundering for his role in what the court described as “a large-scale drug-trafficking operation.”

How to Check Which Gov’t Agency is Spying on Your Smartphone

In our post-Snowden world, everyone almost accepts that some gov’t agency or another will be scanning their phone calls and data transmissions. Most people just accept this, and hope for that it’s not really happening.

Here’s a way to check, and see for yourself (instructional video below).

When blogger Alex Heid performed this simple check from his location in the United States, he quickly discovered that his phone was being routed through a British Ministry of Defence, most likely being analysed by GCHQ. Alex was using a pre-paid mobile/cell phone carrier. http://21stcenturywire.com/2013/12/11/video-how-to-check-which-govt-agency-is-spying-on-your-smartphone/

Both George Orwell and Ford Motor founder Henry Ford essentially warned us that the 20th century marked the first time that big government would use words whose meaning was the opposite of what the masses thought. For instance, the U.S. renamed the War Department into the Department of Defense. It is well known that the Dept of Defense is really the Dept of Offense. Social Security is really insecurity. The Federal Reserve is not federal nor does it have any reserves. The War on Terror is really War by Terror (terror on citizens, not Al Qaeda, which is a Frankenstein creation of the West). Peace is War…
