5 Mind-Blowing Spying Technologies ~ Corbett Report


Read the article: https://www.corbettreport.com/?p=17904

Scientists and engineers can spend years of their lives in painstaking trial-and-error experimentation to develop a breakthrough new technology…and the military-industrial complex can find a way to militarize it in mere hours.

Sadly the military aren’t the only ones interested in the latest gadgets and inventions, though. The alphabet soup agencies are equally voracious for innovative new ways to spy on the public. Today let’s examine five of the most amazing technological breakthroughs…that are about to be turned into nightmarish spying tech.

Creator Of Internet Privacy Device Silenced: “Effective Immediately We Are Halting Further Development”


 Note: A couple years ago it was announced that a private firm was launching a FREE “outernet” service to the globe, which would be operated from satellites. The service was supposed to already be online, but early last year the rocket carrying the satellite exploded in mid-air during launch.
The PTW are desperately attempting to maintain control, as the people are waking-up to stand in their power to defeat the system of domination and control once and for all.
FYI..It’s already a done deal! And so it is…
Have a great week, aloha! {~A~}

New Technology: Police Camera Ball (VIDEO)


Note: Just more high tech toys for the NSA and all other law enforcement agency’s determined on violating basic civil rights. A “camera ball”??? Really? Sounds like a waste of money that could have been diverted toward rehabilitation for training officers to be decent humans when dealing with the public, or countless other programs to reform law enforcement officers into public servants once again.

EUCACH Magnus Olsson: Dr Rauni Kilde radiated for four days with DEW. Remotely assassinated by NSA


Note: From my POV, there’s a good chance Rauni’s Higher Self planned her death at a time when her presence on the other side would be needed for a greater impact on the outcome, at a time when the cabal is threatening to extinguish life on the planet as we know it.  They know their days are numbered, and are creating as much destruction as possible on their way out. Like spoiled brats having a ROYAL temper tantrum. they’re out of control.

As former Chief Medical Director for Finland, she knew all the players. And if I remember correctly, in one of her earlier interviews she said that if she were “taken out”, those responsible would have to contend with her from the other side. Would you want to be haunted by Rauni Kilde “The Grande Dame of Consciousness?” Not me…nope.

She knew way too much about mind control, scalar weaponry and other dangerous technology’s employed against civilians by both the U.S. and Russia, and she made plenty of enemy’s within intelligence agency’s and the military in both country’s.  Well, it’s reassuring to know we have Rauni on the other side kicking-ass and taking names. {Big Smile} Aloha! {~A~}

Virginia House votes 95-4 to Block Federal License Plate Tracking Program ~ OffNow.org Update


Ed. Note: People all over the country are waking up to the smell of tyranny in the NSA surveillance programs. OffNow.org presents citizens with a unique opportunity to cut-off utility resources to these massive facility’s, as a strategic tactic in an attempt to curtail the Police State currently engulfing the U.S.A.. OffNow.org is also making an impact in Congress with bills similar to the ban on Automated License Plate Readers (ALPR’s) without a warrant, a ban which just passed in the Virgina Senate. A similar bill also passed the Montana House Committee recently.

Take Action, get involved and add your signature to this growing movement. OffNow.org is one of the leading activist groups with the potential to make a serious IMPACT on the system of domination and control transforming America into a massive prison without walls.

**From NSA to drones, location tracking and more – we’re taking on the entire surveillance state.  CHIP IN AND HELP US HERE.

Did you know that the NSA isn’t the only federal agency with a massive surveillance program in place? Recently, freedom of information act (FOIA) requests from the ACLU have shown that the Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) has been tracking the location of millions of cars around the country for 8 years – for a crime of ….driving.

How do they get this information? Mostly, through the operation of Automated License Plate Readers (ALPRs) funded by the feds and operated by state and local law enforcement agencies.

And in Virginia today, the state House just voted 95-4 to cut that flow of information off, and ban such ALPRs unless used in conjunction with a warrant.  The bill already passed the Senate, but an important amendment to strengthen the bill in the House sends it back to the Senate for final approval.

The OffNow.org Plan

It’s easy to feel helpless when facing a government that has the power or claims the authority to spy on virtually everybody in the world with impunity.

BUT IT CAN BE STOPPED.

In 1975, Sen. Frank Church warned America about the federal spy program, saying that if a dictator took over the NSA it “could enable [him] to impose total tyranny.”

And that was before the advent of the Internet.

Here we are almost 40 years later and Congress hasn’t done a thing about it. In fact, things are actually far worse. Politicians in D.C. have repeatedly failed to fix the issue, even in the wake of leaked documents and damning revelations.

In The Art of War, Sun Tzu advised this strategy: “Attack him where he is unprepared, appear where you are not expected.”

The NSA expects its opponents to “attack” from the same front they always have: Washington D.C. It’s ready for that.

But it does have an Achilles Heel.

MAXED OUT

In 2006, the Baltimore Sun reported that the NSA had maxed out capacity of the Baltimore-area power grid.

“The NSA is already unable to install some costly and sophisticated new equipment. At minimum, the problem could produce disruptions leading to outages and power surges. At worst, it could force a virtual shutdown of the agency.”

FACT: The spy agency needs resources like water and electricity. It simply cannot operate its facilities without these essential resources.

State and local governments often supply them. For instance, the NSA storage facility in Bluffdale, Utah, will reportedly use up to 1.7 million gallons of water every single day when fully operational. The city holds the contract to supply that water.

It doesn’t have to.

Nothing requires state or local governments to help the federal government violate your rights!

Under the legal principle known as the anti-commandeering doctrine, the Supreme Court has consistently held that the federal government cannot force states to help implement or enforce federal acts or programs. It rests primarily on four Supreme Court cases: Prigg v. Pennsylvania (1842), New York v. US (1992), Printz v. US (1997) and National Federation of Businesses v. Sebelius (2012).

Printz serves the cornerstone.

“The Federal Government may neither issue directives requiring the States to address particular problems, nor command the States’ officers, or those of their political subdivisions, to administer or enforce a federal regulatory program…such commands are fundamentally incompatible with our constitutional system of dual sovereignty.”

1. RESOURCES

Instead of relying on the federal government to reform its own spy program, the OffNow plan involves working at the state level to create an environment that makes it politically and logistically impossible for the NSA and other federal agencies to continue illegal surveillance programs.

The strategy centers around state and local legislation designed to deprive the NSA and other agencies engaged in warrantless spying of the resources and cooperation they need to operate and accomplish their goals.

The short version? We intend to pull the rug out from under them, box them in and shut them down.

This model legislation (HERE), ready for introduction in any state, would ban a state (and all its political subdivisions) from providing assistance or material support in any way to federal spying programs.

This would include, but is not limited to:

  • Refusing to supply water or electricity from state or locally-owned or operated utilities.
  • Ending NSA partnerships with public universities and colleges.
  • Prohibiting state officials from using warrantless data given to them by federal agencies

 

Within the scope of current jurisprudence, state law cannot prevent the federal government from bringing in its own supplies. But, the 2006 power grid issue indicates that in many situations, the federal government simply cannot do this on its own.

As a legal matter, contracts for water, electricity and other resources and services are simply voluntary agreements made between the federal government (or its agents) and the state or local government.  States legitimately can and should decide whether to honor the request based on the state’s own set of priorities.

The states and local communities should simply turn it off.

In fact, Nevada took this path against the powerful Department of Energy, and won.

Many Locations

The federal government relies on many states and local communities to provide the resources required to maintain its spying programs.

But the states and local communities aren’t required to help them out.

In Texas, the city-owned power company will exclusively supply the new data center opening in San Antonio with electricity. The agency was quite upfront about the fact that it choose Texas because of its independent power grid.

In Augusta Ga., local government services provide water and even sewage treatment to the “threat operations center.”

The NSA also maintains “data centers” or “listening posts” in Colorado, Washington, West Virginia, Tennessee, and Hawaii.

Each facility presents unique circumstance where a multi-prong strategy can and will create impediments to their operation.

More importantly, the NSA has been aggressively expanding to new locations in recent years, and the public rarely knows about a new location until after a deal has been made behind the scenes. Passage of the Fourth Amendment Protection Act in states that don’t yet have a physical facility will back the spy agency into a corner, pulling the welcome mat out from under them.

The NSA also its tentacles deep into America’s youth, with tight partnerships at Universities in all but eight US states.  At this time, 171 universities participate in this program.  (see the full list here)

These “Centers of Academic Excellence” serve as recruiting grounds and provide valuable research partnerships to bolster the NSA’s spying and data-collection capabilities. When a state passes the 4th Amendment Protection Act, it begins the process of shutting down these partnerships as well.

2. DATA SHARING

The federal government claims it must spy on virtually the entire world in order to protect you from “terrorism.” Many people accept this kind of personal intrusion believing it keeps them safe. But the fact is these programs are much broader – by far.

The Special Operations Division (SOD) operates as a formerly-secret federal unit that passes information collected without warrant by the NSA and other agencies to state and local law enforcement for the investigation of regular crimes – not terrorism-related at all. Federal agencies almost certainly also give warrantless information to state and local governments via Fusion Centers.

Fusion centers facilitate the exchange of information between state, local and federal agencies, and their existence in virtually every state highlights how deep into our communities Big Brother has infiltrated. These facilities make up part of the Information Sharing Environment (ISE), a consortium that includes the NSA, FBI, Department of Defense and many others. Fusion Centers “contribute to the ISE through their role in receiving threat information from the federal government.”

In other words, they serve as one of the primary means of passing warrantless information along from federal to state and local agencies.

Passage of the 4th Amendment Protection Act, or the more narrowly-focused Electronic Data Privacy Act would ban the receipt of warrantless information by state and local law enforcement (and other agencies), and make such information inadmissible in state criminal proceedings, ending a small but important practical effect of warrantless federal spying.

3. DRONES

While Off Now focuses heavily on limiting or ending spying by targeting NSA collection programs, there are other areas where privacy rights are in serious danger.

The expanding use of drones for domestic policing at the state and local level poses significant threats to privacy. In most states, law enforcement can utilize drones with virtually no restrictions. Ten states have passed laws limiting drone use, including warrant requirements and some with prohibitions on weaponization. Other states need to follow suit, and states with laws on the books need to take action to close loopholes and strengthen their provisions.

Drone use by state and local law enforcement also has national implications. In fact, the Federal government serves as the primary engine behind the expansion of drone surveillance carried out by states and local communities.The Department of Homeland Security issues large grants to local governments so that those agencies can purchase drones. The goal? Fund a network of drones around the country and put the operational burden on the states. Once they create a web over the whole country, DHS steps in with requests for ‘information sharing.’

Passing legislation to limit drone use at the state level not only provides immediate privacy protection to people within that state, it also puts a dent in a long-term program for seemingly endless surveillance on a federal level.

CORPORATIONS

While many NSA locations rely on state or local governments to assist or directly provide badly-needed utilities, others partner closely with corporations.

For example, in Augusta, Ga., a partnership with Georgia Power (a subsidiary of the massive electric holding company in the US, the Southern Company), literally kept the lights on.The local paper reported that “Before a partnership in 2006 with Georgia Power, outages were a regular occurrence on post, particularly during the summer, when heavy demands were placed on the system.”

A follow up bill to the 4th Amendment Protection Act would allow states to end business relationships with compliant corporations happy to profit from NSA abuses.

LOCAL SURVEILLANCE AND THE BIG PICTURE

As a result of the rapid evolution of information sharing, locally-gathered information doesn’t remain “local” for very long. With new intelligence sharing systems like these fusion centers, along with Joint Terrorism Task Forces and the ISE, information collected by local police in any city or small town in America can now quickly end up in federal intelligence databases. That means your information becomes accessible across the country with a click of a mouse.

Many people think they remain safe from the prying eyes of Big Brother because they don’t do anything “suspicious.”

Think again.

It turns out law enforcement uses a pretty loose definition of suspicious. Programs known as “Suspicious Activity Reporting” (SAR) serve as information vacuums to feed the fusion centers, and it doesn’t take much to put you on their radar. According to the ACLU, in early 2008, the DNI ISE Program Manager published criteria to guide local law enforcement officers in reporting “suspicious” activities to fusion centers and and then upline to the federal intelligence community. Some of the activities deemed inherently suspicious include photography, “acquisition of expertise,” and “eliciting information.”

It didn’t take long for local police to take up the gauntlet. The ACLU reports that within three months, the Los Angeles Police Department kicked off its own program.

“The following March the Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD) initiated its own SAR program to ‘gather, record, and analyze information of a criminal or non-criminal nature, that could indicate activity or intentions related to either foreign or domestic terrorism,’ and included a list of 65 behaviors LAPD officers ‘shall’ report, which included taking pictures or video footage, taking notes, drawing diagrams and espousing extreme views.”

In June of that same year, the  Departments of Justice and Homeland Security teamed up with the Major City Chiefs Association to issue a report recommending expansion or the SAR program to other U.S. cities. According to the ACLU, “the FBI began its own SAR collection program called eGuardian in 2008, and in 2010 the military announced it would implement a SAR program through eGuardian.”

The OffNow campaign primarily focuses on action against federal surveillance programs. But with the line between federal, state and local law enforcement becoming increasingly blurred, Americans also need to pay attention to local actions to see and understand the big picture.

Simply put, when local governments seize the power to watch you, that information will ultimately end up in the hands of federal agencies most certainly trying to monitor the actions, communications and movement of virtually every person on earth.

Add to this an FBI facial recognition program coming online and you have the potential for an Orwellian nightmare scenario. As the technology improves and facial recognition “learns” to identify more people, federal agencies will gain the capability to track your every movement, in real time, through networks of cameras around the country.

STRATEGY

Former NSA technical leader and whistleblower William Binney says, “There have been at least 15-20 trillion constitutional violations” by the NSA.

We must engage a multi-prong strategy to deal with a surveillance establishment so well-entrenched and broad in scope.

Currently, many activists are engaged in the support of lawsuits or Congressional legislation to limit or stop the NSA.  But waiting for these to play out positively could prove a dangerous game of chicken.

By approaching the surveillance state on multiple fronts, it is possible to overwhelm it and make its programs too difficult or costly to carry out.  A program to Turn it Off and thwart the surveillance state through state legislation intersects in six main areas:

1. Denying federal agencies engaged in warrantless surveillance the resources they need to operate.

2. Prohibiting the introduction of warrantless information collected by the feds and shared with state and local law enforcement in state criminal proceedings.

3. Ending warrantless location tracking of cellphones, and physical surveillance by drones.

4. Ending cooperative partnerships between universities and the NSA.

5. Penalizing corporations that cooperate with mass, warrantless surveillance.

6. Addressing state and local actions that feed into the larger surveillance-state, such as fusion centers, suspicious activity reporting, surveillance cameras and license plate readers.

SAY “NO!”

Rosa Parks demonstrated the power of “No!”

When she refused to give up her seat on that Montgomery city bus, she ignited a fire that ultimately consumed Jim Crow.

We possess that same power today. State and local governments can say, “No!” to warrantless spying and simply refuse to cooperate with it.

This one word gives us the power to reject mass surveillance and restore privacy. But it can only happen if we muster up the necessary courage to act.

“The only tired I was…was tired of giving in,” Parks later said.

Are you tired? Are you tired of sitting back and feeling helpless as the federal government violates your privacy? Are you tired of excuses and justifications from Washington politicians? Are you tired of being ignored?

Then take action!

Say, “No!”

Join us as we work to take apart the surveillance state!

Court Says NSA Spying too Secret to Stop


In a ruling handed down Tuesday, a federal district judge in California refused to rule that NSA collection of Internet and phone content without a warrant violates the Fourth Amendment, and dismissed part of a lawsuit challenging the spy agency program.

Judge Jeffrey White ruled that the plaintiffs lacked standing to bring the suit and held that even if they could establish standing, the court could not consider the Fourth Amendment ramifications of the program without threatening national security.

Having reviewed the Government Defendants’ classified submissions, the Court finds that the Claim must be dismissed because even if Plaintiffs could establish standing, a potential Fourth Amendment Claim would have to be dismissed on the basis that any possible defenses would require impermissible disclosure of state secret information.

In other words, the perceived need for government secrecy trumps the Constitution. Here we have a crime so secret, we can’t even attempt to prosecute it.

According to Dustin Volz of the National Journal, White also held that the arguments made by the plaintiffs weren’t factually correct. But the judge didn’t reveal what the Electronic Frontier Foundation got wrong in its filing, again citing “national security.”

The Court finds that Plaintiffs have failed to proffer sufficient admissible evidence to support standing on their claim for a Fourth Amendment violation of interference with their Internet communications…In addition, without disclosing any of the classified content … the Court can confirm that the Plaintiffs’ version of the significant operational details of the Upstream collection process is substantially inaccurate.

The EFF filed Jewel v. NSA, on behalf of AT&T customer Carolyn Jewel in 2008. The digital rights group amended the lawsuit to include revelations brought to light by Eric Snowden, the Guardian and other sources.

This ruling once again demonstrates that we cannot depend on the federal courts to rein in NSA spying. Lawsuits rarely end well for those trying to protect civil liberties and limit federal power, especially when the feds cry “national security.” That Siren’s call almost always entices judges to defer to government wishes. National security even served as a rational to lock up Japanese-American behind barbed wire during World War II.

Simply put, the federal government doesn’t limit itself.

The inside the Beltway strategy to stop unconstitutional spying fails us time after time. Forty years after Sen. Frank Church warned that the American surveillance state could lead to “total tyranny” Congress has done nothing but further empower spy agencies like the NSA. The president plays lip service to reforms, but never comes through with anything substantial. And the courts defer to federal national security concerns over and over.

OffNow has a different approach. Attack the surveillance state through state action. The feds depend on state resources and material support to continue their illegal spying. By simply refusing to cooperate, states can legitimately obstruct it.

But we need your help. Americans concerned about privacy have spent way too much time and energy on failed strategies in Washington D.C. We need to turn our attention to ongoing efforts at the state level.

Please take action at OffNow.org and take your privacy into your own hands.

Voting Only is a Path to Failure: Stopping Mass Spying Takes More


As we stand on the cusp of the latest incarnation of the “most important election of our lifetime,” I’ve got some bad news for you.

When it comes to ending mass spying, it won’t matter.

If your party keeps or gains control of Congress, it won’t matter.

If your party loses control of the House or Senate, it won’t matter.

Go vote in federal elections to your heart’s content.

It won’t matter.

The bums you vote in or out don’t run the show.

In a new book titled National Security and Double Government, Tufts University political scientist Michael J. Glennon argues that that our elected officials have very little control over national security and defense. He asserts that agencies like the NSA, Homeland Security, the CIA and the Department of Defense largely govern themselves with virtually no accountability or oversight. Glennon describes the current American political landscape as a “double government.” As Boston Globe columnist Jordan Michael Smith put it, “There’s the one we elect, and then there’s the one behind it, steering huge swaths of policy almost unchecked. Elected officials end up serving as mere cover for the real decisions made by the bureaucracy.”

Glennon does not merely approach the subject as an academic. He possesses “insider” credentials, having served as legal counsel to the Senate Foreign Relations Committee. He also worked as a consultant to several congressional committees and the Department of State. He said the fact the Obama policy looks identical to Bush policy, despite all of the promises of change, sparked the book.

“I think the American people are deluded,” Glennon said in an interview with the Globe. “They believe that when they vote for a president or member of Congress or succeed in bringing a case before the courts, that policy is going to change. Now, there are many counter-examples in which these branches do affect policy…But the larger picture is still true—policy by and large in the national security realm is made by the concealed institutions.”

This reality has important ramification for those working to reform NSA surveillance programs and rein in the spy state. It indicates that the traditional strategies of working through Congress and the federal court system will create good political theater, but have little chance of concrete success. As Glennon explains it, the bureaucracies essentially set the policy and the political class defers to their “expertise.”

Members of Congress are generalists and need to defer to experts within the national security realm, as elsewhere. They are particularly concerned about being caught out on a limb having made a wrong judgment about national security and tend, therefore, to defer to experts, who tend to exaggerate threats. The courts similarly tend to defer to the expertise of the network that defines national security policy.

The presidency itself is not a top-down institution, as many people in the public believe, headed by a president who gives orders and causes the bureaucracy to click its heels and salute. National security policy actually bubbles up from within the bureaucracy. Many of the more controversial policies, from the mining of Nicaragua’s harbors to the NSA surveillance program, originated within the bureaucracy. John Kerry was not exaggerating when he said that some of those programs are “on autopilot.”

Glennon said this dynamic “can result in some very dire consequences.”

But that doesn’t mean we should just throw in the towel and give up. We just need to alter our strategies. Glennon points out that reform has to come from the American people. Not from the government.

“Government is very much the problem here.”

The OffNow strategy ignores D.C. and involves a sort of “institutional civil disobedience.” By using other existing power centers, specifically state and local governments, we will disrupt and pressure these concealed institutions. It took public agitation to advance the civil rights movement. It took public agitation to end the war in Vietnam. And it will take public agitation to bring substantive change to the surveillance state.

Replacing politicians in Washington D.C. will have zero effect unless those in office feel the pressure of the American people. Casting a vote won’t do it. But shutting off the water to an NSA facility just might. Pressuring corporations so they will stop cooperating with agencies engaging in unwarranted spying just might. Pulling the plug on university partnerships with the NSA just might.

When OffNow rolled out its strategy last year, many praised it for its boldness, but wrote it off as “too radical” and “too aggressive.”

I disagree. We need to act aggressively. Mounting evidence affirms this view.

Radical violations of your rights call for radical measures, not just votes.

Won’t you join us?

“Tracking Ebola contacts”: Call in the Surveillance State



October 1, 2014

NoMoreFakeNews.com

Now that the US has its own “Ebola case number 1” in isolation at a Dallas hospital (see also this), it can swing into gear tracking his/her contacts, and the contacts of those contacts.

Never mind that “case number 1” is unproven as an Ebola carrier (see my previous piece, “Is 1st US Ebola patient a hoax?”).

Who cares? It’s hunt and search and isolate in America. And if this campaign gains real steam, the Surveillance State will be deployed, as a “friend of the people.”

NSA, state-run spy ops, video cams on streets; whatever is necessary to “stem the rising tide of the Ebola nightmare.”

This is a perfect way for surveillance advocates to win love for their Machine. “We told you the NSA was absolutely necessary in order to protect the American people. Here’s the proof. We can hunt and find carriers of the dreaded virus, and you and your children will be safe.”

You can also look for the Obamacare apparatus to chime in. New regulations make it necessary to break doctor-patient confidentiality and share medical records. The sharing can be taken to new lengths, in order to locate “Ebola contacts,” or as the police would call them, persons of interest.

We are looking at a confluence of the Patriot Act, CDC epidemic-intelligence foot-soldiers, the NSA, Obamacare, medical ID packages for all citizens, and even community groups who “should be on the lookout” for people “displaying Ebola symptoms.”

Some of these symptoms, such as fever, fatigue, and cough are so general that they’ll spawn overeager helpers (aka busybodies yearning for official status).


power outside the matrix


And in case it hasn’t become clear by now, one of the primary objectives of Obamacare (and any national health insurance plan) is laying down requirements that enrollees, sooner or later, must follow:

Take all prescribed medications; follow the official vaccine schedule. In time of crisis, especially, accept all medical dictates.

Remember the infamous “swine flu” debacle of 1976?

“…the swine-flu vaccination program was one of its (CDC) greatest blunders. It all began in 1976 when CDC scientists saw that a virus involved in a flu attack outbreak at Fort Dix, N.J., was similar to the swine-flu virus that killed 500,000 Americans in 1918. Health officials immediately launched a 100-million dollar program to immunize every American. But the expected epidemic never materialized, and the vaccine led to partial paralysis in 532 people. There were 32 deaths.” —U.S. News and World Report, Joseph Carey, October 14, 1985, p. 70, “How Medical Sleuths Track Killer Diseases.”

That disaster occurred at a time when the Surveillance State was, relatively speaking, a mere infant. These days, “Health officials immediately launched a 100-million dollar program to immunize every American” has a far more ominous ring, given the State’s tracking and enforcement capability.

How to Herd Your Tax Cattle ~ Corbett Report


Brilliant parody by James Corbett…thanks for the lead Keri!

“Good morning, Mr. President. I’m a representative of the shadow government that put you into power. Did you ever wonder how we keep people fighting with each other? Or obeying our silly rules? Or actually loving their captors and slavemasters? This morning we’re going to brief you on just that. Are you ready to begin?”

Google Maps Has Been Tracking Your Every Move, And There’s A Website To Prove It


 

  • google-tracking-map

    Remember that scene in Minority Report, where Tom Cruise is on the run from the law, but is unable to avoid detection because everywhere he goes there are constant retina scans feeding his location back to a central database? That’s tomorrow. Today, Google is tracking wherever your smartphone goes, and putting a neat red dot on a map to mark the occasion.

    You can find that map here. All you need to do is log in with the same account you use on your phone, and the record of everywhere you’ve been for the last day to month will erupt across your screen like chicken pox.

    We all know that no matter what ‘privacy’ settings you may try and implement, our information is all being collected and stored somewhere. That knowledge sits in the back of our minds, and is easy to drown out by shoving in some headphones and watching Adventure Time on repeat until everything stops being 1984. But it’s a sharp jolt back to reality when you see a two dimensional image marking your daily commute with occasional detours to the cinema or a friend’s house.

    tracking-map

    Looking at mine, I realised that a) I live my life in a very small radius, and b) there are places on my map that I don’t remember going. One of them I’ve apparently visited three times on different days. Once whilst “Biking” and twice while “Stationary”. All at times I wouldn’t usually be awake. I’m not sure what’s happening on Wood Street in North Melbourne, or why my phone apparently travels there without me, but I’m not going to rule out secret alien conspiracies.

    This never happened. UNLESS IT DID.

    Apparently this record only happens if you have ‘location services’ switched on in your phone; if you do and you’re finding you have no data, then it means that either you don’t exist or you’ve beaten the system. If it’s the latter, please teach me your ways; I know for a fact that I switched my phone’s location detection off, but apparently it somehow got switched back on.

    Oh well. Perhaps this month I’ll take some inspiration from the runner who used Nike+ to draw this – except this time when the dots are joined, they’ll just form a huge, unblinking eye. With occasional side trips to Wood Street.

    To see if you have location history enabled, head to the Google Maps Location history page. Click the gear-icon button to access History settings. Here, you can choose to disable or enable the service.

    Disabling location history, however, does not remove your past history. If you’d like to erase the locations Google has stored for the past 30 days, head back to the Location history page. The default time period shows location history for the current day, so you may not see any plots on the map.

    Use the pull-down menu below the calendar on the left to show your history, up to 30 days. If you choose a time period in which Google has tracked your location, you’ll see the points where you’ve been on the map. And below the calendar, you’ll see options to delete your history from the time period you have chosen or to delete all history.

Anti-Spying bill signed into law in New Hampshire


CONCORD, N.H., July 24, 2014 –  New Hampshire Gov. Maggie Hassan has signed into law a bill that not only bans state and local law enforcement from searching an electronic device without a warrant, but also prohibits a small but important category of what the NSA has been doing with the warrantless data it collects.

House Bill 1533 (HB1533) was passed unanimously by both legislative houses and was ultimately sent to Gov. Hassan’s desk last month. It bans government entities from searching “information contained in a portable electronic device” without a warrant “signed by a judge and based on probable cause.”

Any information “obtained in violation” of the new law is banned from use in any “criminal, civil, administrative, or other proceeding” in the state of New Hampshire.

Introduced by Rep. Neal Kurk, HB1533 also sets up a direct legal conflict with federal surveillance programs. It reads, in part:

“Government entity” means a federal, state, county, or local government agency, including but not limited to a law enforcement agency or any other investigative entity, agency, department, division, bureau, board, or commission, or an individual acting or purporting to act for, or on behalf of, a federal, state, county, or local government agency. “Government entity” shall not apply to a federal government agency to the extent that federal statute preempts state statute.

OffNow executive director Mike Maharrey sees the inclusion of federal agencies in this clause as an important part of the bill. “Including federal agencies in this prohibition on obtaining electronic information without a warrant does two important things,” he said. “It will force the federal courts to take a position on the constitutionality of mass federal surveillance programs, since federal statute cannot preempt if it’s not constitutional in the first place,” he said. ‘It also brings to the forefront that each state does indeed have a role to play in rejecting unconstitutional spying programs, whether they’re state or federal.”

Maharrey said that while it would be “highly improbable” for HB1533 to actually stop federal spying programs in the state, there are other parts of the bill that would have an immediate impact on the practice effect of the surveillance.

NSA collects, stores, and analyzes data on countless millions of people without a warrant, and without even the mere suspicion of criminal activity. The NSA tracks the physical location of people through their cellphones. In late 2013, the Washington Post reported that NSA is “gathering nearly 5 billion records a day on the whereabouts of cellphones around the world.” This includes location data on “tens of millions” of Americans each year – without a warrant.

Through fusion centers, state and local law enforcement act as information recipients from various federal departments under Information Sharing Environment (ISE). ISE partners include the Office of Director of National Intelligence, which is an umbrella covering 17 federal agencies and organizations, including the NSA. State and local law enforcement share data up the chain with the feds.

The NSA expressly shares warrantless data with state and local law enforcement through a super-secret DEA unit known as the Special Operations Division (SOD). That information is being used for criminal prosecutions. A Reuters report last fall showed that most of this shared data has absolutely nothing to do with national security issues. Most of it involves routine criminal investigations.

This data sharing shoves a dagger into the heart of the Fourth Amendment. HB1533 signed into law is a big first step towards preventing this from happening in the State of New Hampshire.

Stand Against Spying ~ Where do your representatives stand on illegal mass spying?


 

Go here to enter your zip code and address to see how your reps compare

We’re standing against mass spying

We are a coalition of organizations and individuals from across the political spectrum advocating for transparency and an end to mass surveillance. Read our story.

We’ve rated each member of Congress on his or her actions to end or promote mass surveillance. Read about our methodology.

Dear Mr. President:

As citizens of the Internet, we believe that mass surveillance by the NSA and its global partners infringes on our civil liberties, runs contrary to democratic principles, and chills free expression.

We’re calling on you to take immediate steps to end the mass spying. Specifically, we urge you to stop the mass collection and retention of telephone records and Internet communications of hundreds of millions of people who are not suspected of a crime.

In addition, we call on you to provide a full public accounting of the intelligence community’s mass surveillance practices.

We recognize that Congress has an important role to play in passing legislation to ban mass surveillance. However, you are not obligated to wait for Congress to act. The Executive branch started mass surveillance and can end it now. We also urge you to embrace new levels of transparency around America’s surveillance activities. Only through transparency can we trust that reform has occurred.

Surveillance should be targeted. It should be only what is necessary and proportionate to the alleged crime. Surveillance should be authorized by an independent court with access to a full, factual record, facing the potential for scrutiny by a public advocate. Above all, it must not sweep in the records of hundreds of millions of people with little discernment.

Once you have reined in the NSA spying programs, join us in asking Congress to enact reform to ensure mass spying is permanently outlawed.

Sincerely,

Your name here

Joseph P. Farrell – Hour 1 – Clash of Breakaway Civilizations & Secret Space Program ~ Red Ice Radio



June 6, 2014
Joseph P. Farrell has a B.A. in Biblical Studies and Philosophy, an M.A. in Historical and Theological Studies, and a Ph.D. in Patristics from the University of Oxford. He pursues research in physics, alternative history, science and “strange stuff.” He’s the author of many fascinating books in the field of alternative research. In this program, we discuss the upcoming Secret Space Program conference and his books, “Covert Wars and Breakaway Civilizations” and “Covert Wars and the Clash of Civilizations.” Farrell begins discussing how a secret space program hypothetically developed beginning in 1947 up till today. We’ll discuss black budgets, development of technology and the reasoning behind a breakaway civilization. Joseph says that the perception on the part of the national security apparatus that some UFO activity was hostile, and concerned with nuclear and thermonuclear weapons, plus the secret collateralization of space resources in the hidden system of finance, may have led to the perception that humanity was once again at a “tower of babel moment” in history. Farrell argues that this in turn required calculated responses to the UFO in the form of a kind of gunboat diplomacy. In the second hour, we talk about the strange geopolitical moves pertaining to issues of wars, mass surveillance, the NSA, corporate takeovers and moves toward global world government. We’ll question the tie between politics and the secret space program. Later, we discuss the increase of funding that we’ve seen being poured into the private space sector and how this might alter the current trajectory.

California Senate passes bill to pull the plug on illegal NSA spying, 29-1


SACRAMENTO, May 19, 2014 – A bipartisan bill which creates a mechanism to turn off all material support and assistance, including water and electricity resources, from California to the NSA passed the State Senate today. The vote was 29-1.

Dubbed the 4th Amendment Protection Act, Senate Bill 828 (SB828) would ban the state from participating in, or providing material support or resources to any federal agency engaged in the “illegal and unconstitutional collection of electronic data or metadata, without consent, of any person not based on a warrant that particularly describes the person, place, and thing to be searched or seized.”

Sponsored by Sen. Ted Lieu (D-Torrance) and Sen. Joel Anderson (R-San Diego), SB828 represents a growing opposition to NSA spying on a state and local level, and across the political spectrum.

“The NSA’s program is an unreasonable search and seizure of Californian’s electronic data and communications,” said Lieu. Anderson took a similar position on the Senate floor today. “We want to protect against terrorism, but it should never be at the cost of our liberty or freedom,” he said.

THREE AREAS

Practically speaking, SB828 addresses three major areas where NSA and other federal agencies rely on local support to carry out their surveillance programs. This includes resources such as water and electricity for physical facilities, university research partnerships, and sharing of warrantless data.

While the NSA does not currently operate a data or “threat operations” center in California, OffNow spokesman Shane Trejo said states around the country need to pass similar legislation to make NSA expansion more difficult.

“We know the NSA has aggressively worked to expand its physical locations because it maxed out the Baltimore area power grid in 2006.  They’ve built new locations in Utah and Texas, and expanded in several other states,” Trejo said. “Since the NSA is expanding so wildly, it’s not unlikely that they’re planning to build new data centers and ‘threat operations centers’ in other locations. California’s high-tech industry makes it a likely candidate.  We can’t wait until the NSA opens up shop. This act yanks away the welcome mat and tells the NSA, ‘We don’t want you in California unless you follow the Constitution.’”

Six California state universities have partnerships with the NSA.  These university partnerships provide critical research which helps the NSA expand. The California Fourth Amendment Protection Act also addresses the status of these schools as NSA “Centers of Academic Excellence.”  Continuance of such programs would be banned after passage of SB828 should NSA surveillance be determined as illegal and unconstitutional.

Finally, the bill would address the use of warrantless data from the federal government in state or local criminal proceedings.

As reported by Reuters in Aug. 2013, the secretive Special Operations Division (SOD) is “funneling information from intelligence intercepts, wiretaps, informants and a massive database of telephone records to authorities across the nation to help them launch criminal investigations of Americans.”  Documents obtained by Reuters show that these cases “rarely involve national security issues,” and that local law enforcement is directed by SOD to “conceal how such investigations truly begin.”

Reports in the Washington Post and USA Today last fall documented how “the FBI and most other investigative bodies in the federal government” are regularly using a mobile device known as a “stingray” to intercept and collect electronic data without a warrant. Local and state police “have access through sharing agreements.”

PRACTICAL EFFECT

Passage of the bill would be the first step in a process to ban resources to the NSA. If signed into law, once an official determination is made that a federal agency is engaging in illegal and unconstitutional collection of electronic data or metadata, the state ban on resources would immediately go into effect.

Trejo said that passage into law will result in a strong foundation being set.  “California could set a serious precedent with this law,” he said.  “Violate the Constitution and we’ll turn off the water and power. This could be the mantra for privacy-advocates across the country.”

SB828 is now moves to the State Assembly, where it will first be assigned to a committee for majority approval before the full Assembly has an opportunity to concur.

Transparency in Aouchtam and Morocco


From D at Removing the Shackles, Tues. April 15, 2014…
The time has come, the walrus said, to talk of many things……

Most specifically what’s going on in Aouchtam, and Morocco in general.

…. lots of interesting things going on right now my friends. Lots and lots.   So let’s lay it all out transparently, and let the cards fall where they may, ok?    I’m going to lay out all the information that I have, all that I’ve been told, all that I’ve seen, and let’s look at it all, globally and individually and see what resonates.  And see what is hidden and what they’ve tried to hide.

First and most interesting:  The village/valley of Aouchtam was completely without communications- no phone, no cellphone and no internet- for now 6 days.  Most of us use Maroc Telecome cel phones or internet sticks.  Two days ago a few people went to Teteuan and got Meditel sticks and sim cards and “sometimes” they work…..  This communications black out is ONLY in Aouchtam.  If we drive up the hills into the valleys on either side of us, we have perfect internet and cell signals.  Stranger still is that the signals on the internet sticks (Meditel) that we have many times show that we have upload and download signal…. and yet neither Skype, PXIII, or any website will load.  I know that there have been a whole lot of people wondering where we’ve all disappeared to, well…. we’re all right here and all DOing very very well- we just can’t communicate with the outside world, lol. ** I’ve just been informed that the apartments up the hill on the coast might have internet signal….. so hopefully I can post this without having to drive to the next town! **** edited to add that nope, no internet, so today I will make the trek to the next town to get this posted.

The past two weeks has been a flurry of activity here in the village.  There have been people arriving almost daily- some to see the community, some to help prepare for the QEG,  some to help work on the community “clubhouse”, and some to spy….. yep, we’ve got a few agents here along with the awesome engineers, builders, painters and DO’ers of all shapes and sizes!!  The “Agents” have made themselves very visible *giggle*. All agendas are very clearly seen when you have a group of people who can SEE the energetics and sense the “ulterior motives” that are laid out bare for all to view.  Some of the “agents” have tried to mingle with the community groups, but there are many more who are just quietly wandering through the village pretending to be local (PS guys: if you’re going to send in the military and police undercover, you might want to tell them to change their boots.  Just sayin’)

There have been reports of several very VERY interesting things happening in Morocco for the past two weeks or so.  Here is a run down of what we’ve been told and what different people here in the Aouchtam community have seen. I will give you the information that I have and have had reported to me- In point form.

– a British friend of mine returned to Meknez to visit for a few days and witnessed 24 fighter jets flying in formation over the city on Friday April 11, and was told that Obama was in Meknez to meet with the Moroccan King.  This was common knowledge to the people of Meknez who were all discussing this meeting between Obama and King XXXXXX .  Interesting fact: that the meeting was taking place in the very first Moroccan Royal City and Palace.

– At the same time, the Royal guards were outside the palace in Teteuan AND in Midiq (that we know of). This indicates that the King is in residence at those locations.

– Several people in their travels to Aouchtam have witnessed massive troop movement in Morocco- entire train loads of troops and convoys of trucks, buses and armored cars moving around Morocco.  Heather witnessed large troop movements in Tangier two weeks ago  when she saw  a massive bivouac of troops in the area usually reserved (and empty) for immigration detention.  On Thursday April 10th Heather and another group of British friends saw troops and heavy equipment moving in Teteuan.  One rather large piece of equipment, mounted on an armored vehicle and covered with a tarp was seen and SEEN by Heather.  (PS guys:  how did that work out for ya?  EMPs are soooo passe eh?  But I strongly suspect that you didn’t have much luck with your frequency toy either, didja? ….. you can’t  zone in on a frequency that is always changing, and you can’t change a frequency that is shielded. I AM sure that you had fun trying though *giggle*)

– Another good friend, who is ex-British Military, was at Tangier airport and saw two men from British military intelligence arrive- dressed in plain clothes. (PS guys: when playing dressup, you might want to not have flack jackets on under your shirts and desert combat boots on… again, just sayin’)

– Since Friday night there has been a (I’m saying singular, but there might be more than one) high powered ship/boat patrolling the coastline back and forth.

– Friday afternoon a Moroccan Police van showed up and parked in front of the side street that the club house is on, approx 100 ft from the clubhouse, and 4 Moroccan police officers stood and watched the main road and the side road for 4 hours.   Saturday and Sunday there were police parked and watching the road for most of the day-  taking pictures.  Yesterday the police stationed there spoke perfect english.

-There are Moroccan police on all the roads leading to and from Aouchtam and in the outlying areas, up in and around Teteuan, Martil, and Mediq.  This is not extremely unusual, but suddenly all these road stops now have english speaking officers in them.   No one has had any problems with them at all, but it IS notable that suddenly in the past 2-3 days they all have english speaking officers there.

– The house on the very front of the beach, which has been completely quiet until this point (and is also owned by the local drug lord who is currently in prison), has suddenly become very very busy, with cars constantly coming in Sunday.  Nick and I took a walk down the beach and noted at least 15 cars on the beach in front of the house and a large amount of men all along the shore out “fishing”…. I’m using airquotes as all I  witnessed was poles planted in the sand with their lines out in the water, while groups of men stood around and talked quietly.
(PS Guys: If you’re going to send in Military ops undercover, you might want to tell them to ditch the hairdos and at least make some sort of attempt to hide the earpieces…. again, just sayin’)

– Sunday night two men pounded on Heather’s front gate until she came out to answer the door.  They handed her a business card and told her to contact the person named on the card- there was a hand written cell phone number on the card.  Heather told me that what immediately “swung into focus” was the agents that had approached her husband a few years ago and tried to recruit him to work undercover for the Arab Spring Uprising.  The card was for a  purported “manpower” company, but is actually a front for the military recruitment/ops.   She just came over a few minutes ago to tell me that she had called the number on the card twice and that the call wouldn’t go through.  Then she called Brian and in the middle of the call, the line went dead.  Then in a few seconds her phone rang and it was from the number that she had been calling.  As soon as she answered, there was a sharp sound and the phone went dead… and now she cannot get it to work at all.

– two nights ago a man was caught on the roof of the Clubhouse and fled over a wall and through some fields.  He’s going to get a shock if he appears again though as Nick has been gleefully planning all sorts of …. surprizes.  (PS guys, you might not want to fuck with the guy who carries a copy of the Anarchist Cookbook in his back pack)

– oh here is a good one for ya!!!   Yesterday Heather’s well went dry.  The wells all around her house are all full…. except for hers.  She asked one of local men who speaks english and helps us out with certain things and he told her it’s “demons” – seriously.

– On the weather front, we’ve had some really strange stuff going on.  We’ve had fog that lasts all day- it starts to blow out to sea…. then tries to blow back inland, then tries to seep down into the valley, only to blow back up into the mountains.  Heavy cloud cover that just sits on the top of the hills that surround the village. (it’s now Tuesday morning and we awoke again to heavy clouds sitting on the tops of the surrounding mountains and hills). One of the Most interesting though was the wall of fog that sat out over the water that was literally a wall from the surface of the water up to at least a couple of hundred meters high…. that sat there for 6 hours without moving- about a 1/2 kilometer out from the shore.  Interestingly though, while two weeks ago we were getting hosed down big time with Chemtrails, this weekend they haven’t had any luck with them, as  as soon as they lay the trail, it just seemingly gets rubbed out…. they gave up after about the 6th attempt, lol.

-We’ve also witnessed some very unusual things in the Mediterranean Sea along the coast here- strange tides, coloured “streams” that constantly change and run along the coastline- white, grey, green, turquoise, red and brown lines and streaks and “pools”…. areas of the water where the currents are completely dead or moving in different directions.   A week ago Heather and Lisa S and I were driving along the coast and witnessed RED tides and streams moving in different areas of the coast.  Then as we got to the highest point on the cliffs over looking the Sea, we stopped the car and stared in amazement when we saw  literally huge circular and oval spots in the sea that were not only a completely different colour, but the surface of these “circles” was literally concave!!!  As if someone had scooped out shallow pools in the waters surface.  Some of the indents/depressions were smallish, but a few were at least a kilometer long. ….. and we’ve continuously had HUGE pods of dolphins being seen along the coast… they’ve been here for almost 5 months now and don’t seem to be leaving like they’re “suppose to” .  When we flew over the straight between Gibralter and Morocco, my family saw an incredible site of literally thousands of dolphins along the coast- but mixed in with the dolphins were also very large grey shadows that we assume were whales!!

I am putting all of this information out there for the public to SEE and to GET.  We all know what arrives this week in Aouchtam.  So I am shining the spot light on everything happening here so that it IS seen.  Transparency is the key to making everything clear.

To our friends the watchers and their controllers: it’s not working, and it’s not going to work- regardless of “who” is “incharge”. It’s not going to turn out the way you want it to and it’s definitely NOT going to be as you expect- Just like your “RV” and your “new” financial system. ….. have the banks begun yelling for their money yet?  All this crap is done now.  OVER.  So why prolong the mess?  You are making it even more difficult for yourselves and your fear of being “seen” is becoming a self fulfilling prophecy by your own actions.   You have the documents now, so use them.  THAT is the only way forward.  We all kNOW that the well is completely dry, (and it’s not demons that did it. lol) and the banks now know it too.  You’ve run out of magic tricks and slight of hand moves, and the transpicuous truth is being SEEN in ALL levels of banking and “governments”.  When the tellers begin asking why the vaults are empty, what will you tell them?

I know that a certain group of bankers think that they’re all smarty pants when they SWIFTly changed their system to use a different information transfer method, but that has already been SEEN and giggled at. You know it’s only information, right?  That it doesn’t actually mean that the money is there, OR that it is being transferred? It doesn’t matter how many zeros you type onto the end, it still adds up to ZERO! You can send a gazillion zeros anywhere you want…. but it’s still just a big fat 0 on a computer screen. (Which is a perfect mirror to what is in your vaults).

Every “scenario” you’ve run has failed.  You may want to think about that very very  carefully.

It doesn’t have to be this way. If you don’t want to be the villain that at the end of the movie ends up sitting in the mud, covered with rotten eggs and horse shit, while everyone stands around and points at you and laughs, then stop pushing the story in that direction. Rewrite the ending with us, and everyone lives happily ever after.

The big party will happen regardless of your choice, but only YOU can choose if you want to show up wearing mud and snot with a black eye and a split lip, or wearing a beautiful smile, kNOWing that we all played our parts perfectly.

“To Protect And Infect, The militarization of the Internet” Part 2


Very important information….

Join the Coalition to Nullify the NSA…it’s up to us


The Plan

In 2006, it was reported that the NSA had maxed out capacity of the Baltimore-area power grid.  Insiders reported that

“The NSA is already unable to install some costly and sophisticated new equipment. At minimum, the problem could produce disruptions leading to outages and power surges.

At worst, it could force a virtual shutdown of the agency.”
August 6, 2006

In other words, the NSA has an Achilles heel.

WATER

To get around the physical limitation of the amount of power required to monitor virtually every piece of communication around the globe, the NSA started searching for new locations with their own power supplies.

The new Utah Data Center opening in Bluffdale was chosen due to the access to cheap utilities, primarily water.  The water-cooled supercomputers require 1.7 million gallons of water per day to function.

No water = No data center.

The water being provided to the Utah Data Center comes from a political subdivision of the state of Utah.

They have the ability to turn that water off.

The situation is the same at many other locations.  Read on for more details.

4TH AMENDMENT PROTECTION ACT

The model legislation (HERE), ready for introduction in any state, would ban a state (and all political subdivisions) from providing assistance or material support in any way with the NSA spying program.

This would include, but is not limited to:

  • Refusing to supply water or electricity from state or locally-owned or operated utilities
  • A ban on all law enforcement acceptance of information provided without warrant, by the NSA or it’s Special Operations Division (SOD)
  • Severe penalties for any corporations providing services for or on behalf of the state which fill the gap and provide the NSA the resources it requires to stay functional.

While the federal government would not be prevented from bringing in its own supplies, it’s not likely that they have the capacity to do so.

The states and local communities should simply turn it off.

LEGAL DOCTRINE  

The legal doctrine behind this is “anti-commandeering.”  It’s the principle that the federal government doesn’t have the authority to force the states (or local communities) to carry out federal laws, regulatory programs, and the like.  The Supreme Court affirmed this three times in recent years, the cases being: 1997 Printz, 2002 New York, 2012 Sebelius.   It also affirmed this doctrine in the 1842 Prigg case where states refused to assist the federal government in capturing and returning runaway slaves.

This is also consistent with what James Madison advised when writing about the Constitution in Federalist #46.  Among the four steps he advised as “powerful means” to oppose federal power was “a refusal to cooperate with officers of the Union.”

MANY LOCATIONS

It’s not just Utah.  The NSA is reliant on many states and local communities to provide the resources required to operate their spying programs.

In Texas, the new data center opening in San Antonio has its electricity provided exclusively by the the city-owned power company.  And the NSA was quite upfront about the fact that Texas was chosen because of its independent power grid.  The NSA is extremely concerned about basic utilities.

And states providing them don’t have to.

In Augusta Georgia, the “threat operations center” has its water and even sewage treatment provided by local government services.

There’s also NSA “data centers” or “listening posts” in Colorado, Washington, West Virginia, Tennessee, and Hawaii.  Each one is a unique circumstance where a multi-prong strategy can and will create roadblocks to implementation.

CORPORATIONS

While many locations rely on state or local governments to assist or directly provide badly-needed utilities, others partner closely with corporations to do so.

For example, in Augusta, Georgia, a partnership with Georgia Power (a subsidiary of the massive electric holding company in the US, the Southern Company), literally kept the lights on.

The local paper reported that “Before a partnership in 2006 with Georgia Power, outages were a regular occurrence on post, particularly during the summer, when heavy demands were placed on the system.”

UNIVERSITIES

The NSA has its tentacles deep into the youth as well, with heavy partnerships at Universities in all but 8 US states.  In late 2012, the NSA reported that there are now 166 universities in this program.  (see the full list here)

These “Centers of Academic Excellence” are not just a recruiting ground for future analysts in the massive spy centers around the country, they provide valuable research partnerships to bolster the NSA’s spying and data-collection capabilities.  Universities are often provided with funding, scholarships and other tools to expand research and recruitment.

LAW ENFORCEMENT

The NSA has often claimed to be engaging in such activities to protect you from “terrorists,” and many people have accepted this kind of personal intrusion with the belief that they were being kept safe.  But the fact is that their programs are much broader – by far.

The Special Operations Division (SOD) was a highly-secret federal unit which is passing information collected without warrant by the NSA to state and local law enforcement for the investigation of regular crimes – not terrorism-related at all.

STRATEGY

A multi-prong strategy is an absolute must when working to prevent the kind of 4th Amendment violations seen under the NSA spying program.

Currently, activists are engaged in the support of lawsuits from EFF and ACLU, and in support of Congressional legislation to limit or stop the NSA.  But waiting for these to play out positively is a dangerous game of chicken.

A recent vote in Congress which failed to defund the NSA spying program indicates that relying on them to stop the NSA isn’t enough.

By approaching the NSA on multiple fronts, it’s certainly possible to overwhelm them and make their programs too difficult or costly to carry out.  A program to Turn it Off and render the NSA’s spying program as good as null and void intersects in 5 main areas:

  1. State legislation – passed in every state, banning cooperation, compliance, and law enforcement collaboration.
  2. Local Resolutions – passed in every possible county, city and town, supporting these principles and calling on the state to pass the 4th Amendment Protection Act
  3. Corporate Protests – and opposition to those corporations providing the resources needed to carry out the NSA spying program.
  4. Campus Actions – including both protests against NSA/University partnerships, and organizational and student government resolutions formally calling for an end to such partnerships.
  5. Environmental concerns – the waste of resources is massive, with millions of gallons of water being used every single day at just one NSA facility.

From Thoreau to Rosa Parks, and from Ghandi to you – a successful strategy to protect your liberties requires non-compliance and peaceful resistance.

And, as Rosa Parks proved, saying “NO!” can change the world.
