It’s Official: NSA Data Will Soon be Used by Domestic Law Enforcement

| |

Our grid depends on this mineral

If you’re reading this, then I’m willing to bet that you’ve been called many different names throughout your life. If I were to hazard a guess, I would say they were names like kook, paranoid, conspiracy theorist, alarmist, insane, or gullible. And after this week, you can go by a new name: Vindicated.

I’m of course talking about recent revelations from the NSA. Long before Edward Snowden came along, it was no secret that the NSA was spying on everyone without good cause. Anyone who believed that fact was called a conspiracy theorist, but their fears were eventually validated.

These same people also understood that the NSA’s surveillance powers would never be used exclusively against terrorists and hostile governments. The power they have is just too tempting for any government. If various government agencies weren’t using the NSA’s surveillance apparatus to solve domestic crimes, it was only a matter of time before it was used for just that.

And again, they called us conspiracy theorists for believing that. And again, we were right all long.

A while back, we noted a report showing that the “sneak-and-peek” provision of the Patriot Act that was alleged to be used only in national security and terrorism investigations has overwhelmingly been used in narcotics cases. Now the New York Times reports that National Security Agency data will be shared with other intelligence agencies like the FBI without first applying any screens for privacy. The ACLU of Massachusetts blog Privacy SOS explains why this is important:

What does this rule change mean for you? In short, domestic law enforcement officials now have access to huge troves of American communications, obtained without warrants, that they can use to put people in cages. FBI agents don’t need to have any “national security” related reason to plug your name, email address, phone number, or other “selector” into the NSA’s gargantuan data trove. They can simply poke around in your private information in the course of totally routine investigations. And if they find something that suggests, say, involvement in illegal drug activity, they can send that information to local or state police. That means information the NSA collects for purposes of so-called “national security” will be used by police to lock up ordinary Americans for routine crimes.

Anybody who knows anything about how governments work, should not surprised. You can’t give them any kind of power, and expect them to use it responsibly. You can’t give them any stipulations. Eventually they’ll find a legal loophole to work around any limitations that have been placed on them.

In other news, the Pentagon admitted this week that they’ve been deploying military drones over the United States for domestic surveillance purposes. Much like the NSA’s surveillance apparatus, we were assured that drones were for terrorists in faraway lands. Nothing so Orwellian would ever be used against ordinary American citizens at home. Yet here we are, with more to come.

Perhaps you’re beginning to see a pattern. Everything our government uses against foreign enemies, eventually makes its way back home. Every war is an opportunity to try out new technologies, before turning around and using them against American citizens. It just goes to show, that war really is the health of the state.

    “It just goes to show, that war really is the health of the state.”
    War is the ‘Business of the State’, and ‘Business is Booming’ (pun intended).

    • I forgot

      Or, “Killing is their business and business is good.”

      • Plasmael Homunculus

        Can’t have a War without some ‘good old fashioned Killing’.
        It’s the production side of war that is the ‘Big Business’. The killings are insignificant, as long as resources are secured and profits are made.

        • I forgot

          That does appear to be the way it goes.

          Revelation 6:14-17 is my business …
          it’s very simple, it discloses that every Wartime leader and their armies go to hell , for shedding blood…
          the only escape from that as I see it is to be killed in war!
          But then you have to also be a Christian… Nothing is more amazing to me than to present another Christian with Revelation 13:9-10 and have him to actually justify shedding blood in necessity …. when it is so abundanly clear!
          Just as the author of this article has demonstrated and revealed how incredibly insane our situation with the armed forces to law inforcment and the collection of data being used on everyone.. and our soon to be police State possibility .. so it is with Christians who can’t even realize they are not worthy to stand beside those Christians in Revlation 6:9-11 ,, the matyrs of Jesus who overcame the Roman empire in 300 years without bloodletting .. :)

            You assume I am a christian…

            I’ll always defend myself no matter what any book says because it is the right thing to do, I will not stand idly by and watch evil take over and if that makes me a bad person then so be it, I will fight.

            I’m just a Megadeth fan and that was the name of their fist album. Ironically Dave Mustane, the lead singer and rythm guitar player of Megadeth is a born again christian now and when he covers the song Anarchy in the UK he won’t sing the line “I am an anti-christ” anymore.

          • the Colosseum is full

            No, Aye didn’t make that assumption, I just wanted to let you know, and now yu Du ! :) lol

          • the Colosseum is full

            I did not assume that you are a Christian… I just wanted to inform you and anyone else the result in the judgment ! as per Jesus who is lord and master of the whole earth and everything that is made.

            There are hundreds of paths up the mountain,
            all leading in the same direction,
            so it doesn’t matter which path you take.

            The only one wasting time is the one
            who runs around and around the mountain,
            telling everyone that his or her path is wrong.

            ~ Hindu teaching

            That is my philosophy so you are not wrong!

            I support your beliefs 100%!

    Law enforcement over all is the thugs at the bottom , like bottom feeders, that do what the criminal syndicate they work for, like local and state politicians and judges, tell them to do..Law enforcement loved the swat teams that we suppose to be for special situations that are now used if the wind blows.Anything at all that gives them more rights trampling power they will be attracted to like a magnet and use it anyway their twisted ego driven criminal minds can come up with. To entertain the thought that this can be corrected in the kangaroo courts or the rigged ballot box is insane!

    Obama comment with regard to libertarianism, on Friday March 10 in Austin, TX at the SxSW conference:

    “I can find the fiercest libertarian in the room, you know, who despises every level of government, thinks it’s all-corrupting. But they’re checking the weather on their phone and lo and behold, there’s a government satellite that is facilitating that. And they’d be really irritated if they couldn’t figure out whether it’s going to be 70 and sunny or 60 and rainy tomorrow. But that’s not reported as government because we just take for granted that of course there are roads and of course we have a geosatellite system. And of course we have special forces who are making sure there aren’t folks who are blowing up our buildings. Part of our task is to tell a better story about what government does.”

    Ya see, there’s no need to worry about all this spying, the endless wars and developing tyranny! You can use your idiot phone to check the weather from a gov’t satellite! See, these really aren’t the droids you’re looking for. All you need is a better “story” about what government does! Now back to Obey, Consume, Sleep.

      It is the special forces who are blowing up most buildings.

      • Wags71

        And no one would hate us enough to blow up buildings if this country wasn’t reigning terror on them for their entire lives.

        • http://groups.yahoo.com/neo/groups/political_reading_room/ disqus_3BrONUAJno

          If one understands the cause of terrorism, one isn’t surprised when it doesn’t occur as widely as our government tells us it does.

    • http://www.shitsenders.com Я0llyJ0g3r

      lol, doppler weather radars are ground based but Obama isn’t counting on a thinking crowd to notice things like that and our weather is reported locally, no need for a tyrannical, central power structure to provide weather info… clown.

      Great comment, BTW.

      • Wags71

        Or the fact that individual people without government could have created 10 times as many satellites that are 10 times better for 1/10th as much money.

        • http://www.shitsenders.com Я0llyJ0g3r

          I don’t believe those exist but I see and agree with your point.

    What the government has taken unlawfully they have always shared likewise.

      I hope you are aware how controversial that entire premise is within Christendom. There is an increasing number of theologians who think the heathens will be removed by the rapture, not left behind.

            produce the body, the sealed tomb couldn’t even hold in some dead jew? where did the Roman guard[under penalty of death if any of the 16 failed their duty] put the body? How come the disciples, all fear ridden one day, are proclaiming the Ancient of Days is risen from hell the next?

    In my experience, the majority of Americans are so ignorant of their own laws and history that they are as much enemies of the republic as it’s true enemies are. Or to do the same thing to myself as I did to you, quoting Thomas Jefferson correctly, “If we are to guard against ignorance and remain free, it is the responsibility of every American to be informed.”

    This nation is fast becoming a dictatorship. Obama has 10 months until he officially steps down as President. A lot can happen in those ten months. Wait until he has Hillary arrested and makes the announcement that he will stay on. There will be a huge uprising but he will will quickly squelch that because he has the power to do so. The people of this land will then realize that Mr. Obama has the upper hand and he will never step down. Once he abolishes the Constitution we will know for sure who our master is!
