Fakebook? What’s The NSA Up To Now?

“Top-secret documents reveal that the National Security Agency is dramatically expanding its ability to covertly hack into computers on a mass scale by using automated systems that reduce the level of human oversight in the process.

The classified files — provided previously by NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden — contain new details about groundbreaking surveillance technology the agency has developed to infect potentially millions of computers worldwide with malware “implants.” The clandestine initiative enables the NSA to break into targeted computers and to siphon out data from foreign Internet and phone networks.

The covert infrastructure that supports the hacking efforts operates from the agency’s headquarters in Fort Meade, Maryland, and from eavesdropping bases in the United Kingdom and Japan. GCHQ, the British intelligence agency, appears to have played an integral role in helping to develop the implants tactic.”* The Young Turks hosts Cenk Uygur and Ana Kasparian break it down.

Bradley Manning Acquitted on “Aiding the Enemy” Charge, Guilty on 20 Other Counts

The sentencing hearing for Army whistleblower Bradley Manning begins today following his acquittal on the most serious charge he faced, aiding the enemy, but conviction on 20 other counts. On Tuesday, Manning was found guilty of violating the Espionage Act and other charges for leaking hundreds of thousands of government documents to WikiLeaks. In beating the “aiding the enemy” charge, Manning avoids an automatic life sentence, but he still faces a maximum of 136 years in prison on the remaining counts. The sentencing phase is expected to last at least a week, with more than 20 witnesses set to appear.

Russian Lawyer: Snowden Could Soon Leave Moscow Airport for City

Russian Lawyer: Snowden Could Soon Leave Moscow Airport for City

A Russian lawyer for National Security Agency whistleblower Edward Snowden says his client could leave the transit area of a Moscow airport as early as Wednesday and enter the city pending the receipt of the necessary paperwork. Snowden has been sheltering in the airport for exactly a month as of today as the United States has filed espionage charges and launched a global campaign to block his asylum bids in a number of countries. Lawyer Anatoly Kucherena told Reuters Snowden believes U.S. efforts have made it unsafe for him to leave Russia and travel to Latin America, where three countries have offered asylum. He said Snowden should soon receive papers allowing him to remain in Moscow after applying for temporary asylum in Russia last week.

I am rooting for Edward Snowden and any other person who has the guts and conscious to expose misconduct that our government practices against its people.

The U.S. government was built and has continued through decades to use and abuse its wall of protection called laws.

Remember, just because a law is set forth does not mean it is right and is in the best interest of protecting all. The constituents of our government have shown nothing but its one-sided agenda to feed its appetite for control and folding money.

It is our right to know if our government is collecting, storing and looking over everything we do. Every word typed, every web search, every telephone call is a open forum for the U.S.

Our governments No Privacy Act

Our governments No Privacy Act

FBI Director Robert Mueller has defended the Obama administration’s mass collection of domestic phone records, saying such practices are legal and done in the interests of national security. Speaking before the House Intelligence Committee Thursday, Mueller also confirmed the administration has launched a criminal investigation into Edward Snowden, the whistleblower who leaked the secret documents about NSA spying.

FOURTH AMENDMENT [U.S. Constitution]

‘The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.’

President Obama and General Keith Alexander say the records being obtained are not names, locations and actual recording of our personal phone calls. But only the phone numbers and duration of calls.

Yea right Mr. President!!!! NSA (National Security Agency)wiretapping Verizon customers. In the June issue of InfoWars Magazine, Kurt Nimmo reveals that Google has not only been spying on users, it’s collaborating with the CIA in the process. “[Google and the CIA] recently decided to back a company called Recorded Future. It specializes in analyzing websites, blogs, social networks, and Twitter accounts to establish relationships between people, organizations, actions and incidents.”

Nimmo also reveals that the CIA’s venture capital firm, In-Q-Tel, provided seed money for Keyhole, Inc., a software development company specializing in geospatial data visualization applications. “Keyhole, Inc., was acquired by Google in 2004 and provided Google Earth with its 3D earth visualization.”

And in March, Google agreed to pay $7 million to settle complaints about unauthorized data collection. The company was accused of data theft when it used Google Street View to gather massive amounts of personal information of Wi-Fi users.

Edward Snowden may go down in history as one of this nation’s most important whistleblowers. He is certainly one of the bravest. The 29-year-old former technical assistant to the CIA and employee of a defense intelligence contractor has admitted to disclosing top secret documents about the National Security Agency’s massive violation of the privacy of law-abiding citizens.

Our government labels people terrorists and uses these records to do so. When will the government be for it’s people fully and faithfully?

I don’t know about you, but I don’t trust these entities, people, corporations who all seem to have the same agenda. Control of the people…
