The NSA Continues To Abuse Americans by Intercepting Their Telephone Calls – Antiwar.com Original

Posted by Martin C. Fox on May 14, 2018

Has the US government intercepted your phone calls and/or text messages? You don’t know, which is why the surveillance state is so evil. Instead of assuming your privacy is protected by the US Constitution, you must assume that the US government is listening in to your communications. The difference between these is the difference between freedom and tyranny. The ultimate triumph of totalitarian states was not to punish citizens for opposing its tyranny, but to successfully cause them to censor themselves before even expressing “subversive” thoughts.

If we are to regain the liberty that our Founders recognized was granted to us not by government, but by our Creator, we must redouble our efforts to fight against the surveillance state!

The Ron Paul Institute for Peace and Prosperity : The NSA Continues to Abuse Americans by Intercepting Their Telephone Calls

Posted by Martin C. Fox on May 9, 2018

Edward Snowden did us all an enormous favor by risking it all to let us know that our government had come to view us as the enemy to be spied on and monitored.

One of the few positive things in the ill-named USA FREEDOM Act, enacted in 2015 after the Snowden revelations on NSA domestic spying, is that it required the Director of National Intelligence to regularly report on its domestic surveillance activities. On Friday, the latest report was released on just how much our own government is spying on us. The news is not good at all if you value freedom over tyranny.

According to the annual report, named the Statistical Transparency Report Regarding Use of National Security Authorities, the US government intercepted and stored information from more than a half-billion of our telephone calls and text messages in 2017. That is a 300 percent increase from 2016. All of these intercepts were “legal” under the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA), which is ironic because FISA was enacted to curtail the Nixon-era abuse of surveillance on American citizens.

US: No Free Speech for Russians – LewRockwell

Posted by Martin C. Fox on February 22, 2018

The gorilla so big I didn’t see it!

Why didn’t the CIA or the NSA or the FBI pick this up? 

Under Obama’s watch when he thought Hillary would win.

https://www.lewrockwell.com/2018/02/andrew-p-napolitano/mueller-in-hot-pursuit/

…The dates are important because we know from the revelations of Edward Snowden that the National Security Agency, the federal government’s domestic spying apparatus, began its pursuit of capturing all electronic data on everyone in the U.S. in 2001 and succeeded in mastering the capture of all keystrokes, telephone calls and digital traffic by 2005. We also know that the NSA traffic proceeds through FBI computers and that the CIA keeps constant tabs on Russian spies in Russia and elsewhere.

Why didn’t the CIA or the NSA or the FBI pick this up?

That is the $64,000 question that the indictment does not address, Read the rest of this entry »

It Can Happen Here – LewRockwell

Posted by Martin C. Fox on February 8, 2018

https://www.lewrockwell.com/2018/02/andrew-p-napolitano/it-can-happen-here/

We remain embroiled in a debate over the nature and extent of our own government’s spying on us. The Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act, which was enacted in 1978 as a response to the unlawful government spying of the Watergate era, was a lawful means for the government to engage in foreign surveillance on U.S. soil, but it has morphed into unchecked government spying on ordinary Americans.

The surveillance state is now here…

AT&T Captures Classified NSA Tech Contract

Posted by Martin C. Fox on January 25, 2018

Groundbreaker is supposedly a “massive” NSA IT update project.

AT & T is no friend to gunowners (nor anyone else outside of the NSA/DHS). Don’t communicate ANYTHING about firearms electronically.

http://www.nextgov.com/cio-briefing/2018/01/t-captures-classified-nsa-tech-contract/145455/

Following a resolved bid protest, the National Security Agency can now begin work with telecommunications giant AT&T on the second of three massive tech contracts that make up the agency’s classified Groundbreaker program.

Foxes in Charge of Intelligence Hen House – Antiwar.com Original

Posted by Martin C. Fox on January 23, 2018

J. Edgar is alive and well in spirit.

https://original.antiwar.com/mcgovern/2018/01/22/foxes-charge-intelligence-hen-house/

We learned in recent days that the FBI and the National Security Agency “inadvertently” deleted electronic messages relating to reported felonies, but one noxious reality persists: No one in the FBI or NSA is likely to be held to account for these “mistakes.”

It is a 70 year-old tradition. Today’s lack of accountability is enabled by Read the rest of this entry »

Spy Court Finds Surveillance Operating Outside The Law – PaulCraigRoberts.org

Posted by Martin C. Fox on January 23, 2018

Whether the Republicans on the Intelligence Committee will use the facts to bring the police state under control or wimp out on “national security” concerns, as Republicans tend to do, remains to be seen

What is your guess?

https://www.paulcraigroberts.org/2018/01/22/spy-court-finds-survelliance-operating-outside-law/

The NSA, CIA, and FBI are criminal organizations that should be abolished and their leaderships imprisoned. Here is proof from the United States Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court that security agencies have been operating outside the law:https://www.dni.gov/files/documents/icotr/51117/2016_Cert_FISC_Memo_Opin_Order_Apr_2017.pdf Read the rest of this entry »

The main function of the National Security Administration is to collect the dirt on members of the house and senate, the staffs, principal contributors, and federal judges. The dirt is used to enforce silence about the crimes of the security agencies. Read the rest of this entry »

http://www.collective-evolution.com/2017/12/10/30-year-nsa-employee-shares-why-they-are-watching-you-it-has-nothing-to-do-with-terrorism/

William Binney is a former high ranking intelligence official with the National Security Agency (NSA). He is one of the highest placed intelligence officials to ever blow the whistle on insider NSA ‘knowings.’ He made headlines when he resigned in 2001 after 9/11, having worked more than thirty years for the agency. He was a leading code-breaker against the Soviet Union during the Cold war, and was repelled by the United States’ massive surveillance programs… Read the rest of this entry »
