are apt to shut our eyes against a painful truth, and listen to
the song of that siren till she transforms us into beasts." —Patrick
Henry, March 23, 1775
past week has been another tsunami of articles on the Internet
over the NSA snooping scandal. Talk radio burning up the airwaves
and politicians posturing during hearings. Some of them seem so
shocked. Many of them voted for the damnable "Patriot" Act, so
I can't understand why they are suddenly shocked at the brazen
data mining that's been going on for years.
Party USA members of the Outlaw Congress blame George Bush, Jr.,
as the one responsible. Most certainly, Bush, Jr., and the Republican
controlled Congress passed the most totalitarian, unconstitutional
legislation ever seen in this country until the grand daddy of
them all last year, the National Defense Authorization Act. Americans
have been so pleased to have their God-given rights stripped from
them, they vote the same destroyers of the Bill of Rights back
into office election after election since 2001.
anyone doubt the Marxist impostor president wouldn't push the
constitution killing "laws" on the books to fight the manufactured
"war on terror" until someone finally got fed up with seeing what's
been going on and leaked the information which is now another
full blown scandal?
degree of spying on Americans is far more vast than when I wrote

Who the hell do you people think you are?
collecting phone records of millions of Verizon customers daily
Exclusive: Top secret court order requiring Verizon to hand over
all call data shows scale of domestic surveillance under Obama
secret Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court (FISA) granted
the order to the FBI on April 25, giving the government unlimited
authority to obtain the data for a specified three-month period
ending on July 19. Under the terms of the blanket order, the numbers
of both parties on a call are handed over, as is location data,
call duration, unique identifiers, and the time and duration of
all calls. The contents of the conversation itself are not covered.
The disclosure is likely to reignite longstanding debates in the
US over the proper extent of the government's domestic spying
the Bush administration, officials in security agencies had disclosed
to reporters the large-scale collection of call records data by
the NSA, but this is the first time significant and top-secret
documents have revealed the continuation of the practice on a
massive scale under President Obama. The unlimited nature of the
records being handed over to the NSA is extremely unusual. Fisa
court orders typically direct the production of records pertaining
to a specific named target who is suspected of being an agent
of a terrorist group or foreign state, or a finite set of individually
many Americans knew anything about FISA (Foreign Intelligence
Surveillance Court) before last week? A half percent of the adult
population? Probably more like a a half of a half of a half percent,
but those of us who have known about it for a long time warned
it would eventually support a snooping police state flushing our
rights down the toilet:

Prism program taps in to user data of Apple, Google and others
Top-secret Prism program claims direct access to servers of firms
including Google, Apple and Facebook
National Security Agency has obtained direct access to the systems
of Google, Facebook, Apple and other US internet giants, according
to a top secret document obtained by the Guardian. The NSA access
is part of a previously undisclosed program called Prism, which
allows officials to collect material including search history,
the content of emails, file transfers and live chats, the document
Guardian has verified the authenticity of the document, a 41-slide
PowerPoint presentation classified as top secret with no distribution
to foreign allies which was apparently used to train intelligence
operatives on the capabilities of the program. The document claims
"collection directly from the servers" of major US service providers.
Although the presentation claims the program is run with the assistance
of the companies, all those who responded to a Guardian request
for comment on Thursday denied knowledge of any such program.
a statement, Google said: "Google cares deeply about the security
of our users' data. We disclose user data to government in accordance
with the law, and we review all such requests carefully. From
time to time, people allege that we have created a government
'back door' into our systems, but Google does not have a back
door for the government to access private user data."
what I said in my column last week: "There's no question such
snooping will provide the potential for violating attorney client
privilege, doctor to patient communications, husband and wife
communications, communications via email between judges and other
specific confidences that have always been held sacrosanct." It's
a done deal.

vile rats who hold the power in Washington, DC, are doing their
best to keep the truth from we the people:

arrogance knows no bounds. Their lust for power rivals that of

Department Fights Release of Secret Court Opinion Finding Unconstitutional
Surveillance (June 7, 2013)
the midst of revelations that the government has conducted extensive
top-secret surveillance operations to collect domestic phone records
and internet communications, the Justice Department was due to
file a court motion Friday in its effort to keep secret an 86-page
court opinion that determined that the government had violated
the spirit of federal surveillance laws and engaged in unconstitutional
Soetoro aka Obama, Eric Holder and those in the Outlaw Congress
like Sen. Diane Feinstein (D) who support spying on us, believe
this will go away with after a little time aren't getting the
message - it won't.
Greenwald: U.S. wants to destroy privacy worldwide
is a massive apparatus within the United States government that
with complete secrecy has been building this enormous structure
that has only one goal, and that is to destroy privacy and anonymity,
not just in the United States but around the world,” charged Glenn
Greenwald, a reporter for the British newspaper “The Guardian,”
speaking on CNN. “That is not hyperbole. That is their objective.”
whatever the Justice Department wants to do, they can beat their
chests all they want,” he said. “People like Dianne Feinstein
and Saxby Chambliss can have press conferences threatening people
for bringing … light to what it is they're doing, but the only
people who are going to be investigated are them. It's well past
time that these threats start to be treated with the contempt
that they deserve. That's certainly how I intend to treat them
moving forward, with more investigation and disclosures.”
also bashed the Obama administration for issuing “threats.” "The
Obama administration has been very aggressive about bullying and
threatening anybody who thinks about exposing it or writing it
or even doing journalism about it, and it's well past time that
come to an end,” he said. Greenwald also told CNN’s Jake Tapper
that the administration has taken a “warped and distorted” view
of the PATRIOT Act, the legislation that authorized certain kinds
of surveillance for security reasons in the wake of the Sept.
11, 2001, terrorist attacks.
the Obama administration is doing in interpreting the PATRIOT
Act is so warped and distorted and it vests themselves with such
extremist surveillance powers over the United States and American
citizens that Americans, in their words, would be stunned to learn
what the Obama administration is doing,” he said on CNN’s “The
Americans who are active in trying to save this republic from
a planned course of destruction have suspected for a long time
alphabet soup agencies have been spying on all of us and data
mining our lives, there's still a larger number of Americans who,
because of ignorance about the truth on what really happened Sept.

actually believe the government has the right to collect everything
about our lives, store it and use it - to keep us all safe!
putative president said this last week: "‘You can't have 100%
security and 100% privacy’ and zero inconvenience,’ Obama said.
‘We’re going to have to make some choices as a society.’" Spoken
like a true totalitarian dictator. Stupidly, millions of adult
Americans will support such tyranny instead of listening to words
from the past. Benjamin Franklin: "Those who would give up Essential
Liberty, to purchase a little Temporary safety, deserve neither
Liberty nor Safety".
gets the blame? The U.S. Congress and the American people. Unscrupulous,
power mad members of Congress from both parties have been stomping
on the U.S. Constitution for decades. A disinterested and uninformed
population have continued to vote the same destroyers back into
office election after election with the help of election fraud
committed by party hacks and all the sophisticated electronic
methods of stealing our votes.
of the blame can also be given to the government's indoctrination
centers they call public schools for eliminating civics, teaching
of our history, the sacrifices made to birth this republic, constitutional
classes and inculcating a love for America and all we used to
stand for. The Communist Party International has executed their
plan to infiltrate America's schools with precision over the decades.
Just look at America's colleges and universities. Leftist hell
holes breeding young Americans into perfect little communists.
Oh, they start out embracing socialism, but after years of drowning
in propaganda, what we have are tens and tens of millions of adult
age Americans who don't have a clue about the founding of this
republic (the majority believe we're a democracy), don't care
and want only for mother government to take care of their every
need while they pursue the dead American dream.
Skousen puts out a weekly 'World Affairs Brief' newsletter (by
subscription and well worth the small amount). This past Friday,
he had a lengthy analysis about this snooping scandal and summed
it up quite accurately:
predict that nothing will happen to stop this surveillance. The
Republicans are not going to stop it in their knee jerk support
of the war on terror, and the Democrats are going to defend the
Obama administration unconditionally. All this scandal will do
is force Americans to accept total surveillance as a fact, and
fall back into their pattern of accommodation with an all powerful
government. After this week, the 4th Amendment has been fully
-- unless the American people stand up and fight back, both personally
and through lawsuits (this one will become a class action):

Obama, who, however unbelievable, found it necessary to “reassure”
the rabble of this great nation Friday that he, “Big Brother,”
is not spying on it in the wake of revelations of widespread searches
of over 100 million Verizon cellphone subscribers and users and
the illegal warrants he had issued and executed on Fox News
and Associated Press employees and management. As a Verizon
user myself, I am directly affected by these criminal unconstitutional
searches and seizures, and I have filed suit to hold Obama, his
attorney general, Eric Holder, my alma mater, the U.S. Justice
Department, the head of the National Security Agency (NSA) Keith
B. Alexander, the head of Verizon and the judge who illegally
issued the warrant, Roger Vinson, accountable to the people.

the heinous and perversely applied Patriot Act which had been
repeatedly used as a pretext to violate our privacy....Rest assured

outrage, but other cellphone, telephone land line and Internet
providers as well....Here is what I said in the press release

I know that social media like Facebook and MySpace are used as

mail for anything that needs to remain private. Of course, that
doesn't mean it will stay private. Several years ago I picked

blotter: Patriot Act e-mail spying approved
part of a grand jury investigation that's still secret, the Justice
Department asked a federal magistrate judge to approve monitoring
of an unnamed person's e-mail correspondents. The request had
a twist: Instead of asking to eavesdrop on the contents of the
e-mail messages, which would require some evidence of wrongdoing,
prosecutors instead requested the identities of the correspondents.
Also included in the request was header information like date
and time and Internet address--but not subject lines.
federal magistrate judge balked and asked the Justice Department
to submit an additional brief to demonstrate that such a request
would be legal. Instead, prosecutors asked Judge Hogan to step
in. He reviewed the portion of federal law dealing with "pen register"
and "trap and trace" devices--terms originating in the world of
telephone wiretapping--and concluded it "unambiguously" authorizes
the e-mail surveillance request. Though the language may be clumsy,
Hogan said, the Patriot Act's amendments authorize that type of
easily obtainable surveillance of e-mail. All that's required,
he said, is that prosecutors claim the surveillance could conceivably
be "relevant" to an investigation."
Rosen, a veteran journalist for FOX News Network was targeted
by Eric Holder's thugs. They obtained a warrant actually accusing
Rosen of criminal activities. They not only obtained his phone

No. I have given up just about my whole life for the past 22 years

to relearn what I had forgotten from school and spend a zillion
hours reading books exposing the plans of the global elites. No
