NSA Whistleblower: U.S. Government is Lying! Has Copies of Most of Your Emails

http://youtu.be/hfS2Op9l3nk

National Security Agency whistleblower William Binney reveals he believes domestic surveillance has become more expansive under President Obama than President George W. Bush. He estimates the NSA has assembled 20 trillion "transactions" — phone calls, emails and other forms of data — from Americans. This likely includes copies of almost all of the emails sent and received from most people living in the United States.

lol turtle necks

See how the turtle neck dude is already trying to remove accountability from Obama.

Obama can do the right thing and listen to the people, not these war mongering idiots.

In any case. Scary stuff.

not mine :)

i use countermail. encrypted and the company and the servers are in Switzerland. eff you uncle same!

You can do the same thing using GPG..and it is impractical

The problem with encryption is that it requires everyone you communicate to use the same protocol. If you use PGP (or GPG), you have to have a public encryption key for anyone you want to send a message to. That person must be using the same encryption method and decrypt with their secret key. This works OK if you have personal contacts willing to set up encryption, but it fails with anyone who doesn't. Not only is your mother or grandmother not likely to use PGP, neither is Paypal, Amazon, Facebook, Ebay, your bank, your ISP, etc. or any number of businesses or entities that you may need to communicate with.

We all want progress, but if you're on the wrong road, progress means doing an about-turn and walking back to the right road; in that case, the man who turns back soonest is the most progressive.

Is Switzerland, a paragon of virtue? Honest international bank?

Is sending your personal info far away... safe from prying eyes? You trust your secrets far & wide?

Do you know of the Bank of International Settlements(BIS)? The central bank of central banks? Why do you suppose BIS is headquartered in Switzerland? Doctor Ron Paul advocates: End the Fed. How about the central bank of central banks?

Bank of International Settlements is an international organisation which:

  • counterparty for central banks in their financial transactions;
  • agent or trustee in connection with international financial operations.

Established on 17 May 1930, the BIS is the world’s oldest international financial organisation. Its head office is in Basel, Switzerland and it has representative offices in Hong Kong SAR and in Mexico City. The BIS currently employs 589 staff from 54 countries.

The Bank’s capital is held by central banks only. Sixty institutions currently have rights of voting and representation at General Meetings: The central banks or monetary authorities of Algeria, Argentina, Australia, Austria, Belgium, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Brazil, Bulgaria, Canada, Chile, China, Colombia, Croatia, Czech, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hong Kong SAR, Hungary, Iceland, India, Indonesia, Ireland, Israel, Italy, Japan, Korea, Latvia, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Macedonia, Malaysia, Mexico, Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Peru, Philippines, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Russia, Saudi Arabia, Serbia, Singapore, Slovakia, Slovenia, South Africa, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Thailand, Turkey, United Arab Emirates, United Kingdom and United States, plus the European Central Bank.

My only consolation is that

My only consolation is that they have so many friggin emails (trillions!!) that mine will be lost in the mess...maybe yours too.

Dr.Ron Paul's 2002 Predictions
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zGDisyWkIBM

We are entering very dark times

.

So..

My question is how they can link email accounts with people.. SS#'s are not linked to email accounts.. and email accounts do not exist on any one computer or are even routinely accessed through any one IP address. Accounts can be shared, hacked, accessed by anyone with the password. How can it be real evidence against American's with a generic gmail account?

My account for example doesn't even have my full name associated with it. If you are paranoid you can always open a new account that isn't linked with any personal information.

Phone calls and texts are the real scary thing to me.. if they have full conversations stored away in a hard drive somewhere. Its like your entire life of conversation stored up by big brother. Lets say our government goes bad.. real bad.. and they decided to look up everyone who supported RP in 2008 and 2012 and then come after them.

It would be a tool that could be used to come after just about anyone. I'm sure just about everyone no matter how perfect has talked about something on the phone or texted something at some point in their life that could be collected and interpreted as evidence against you.

A good way to fight back would be to create farms of computers creating phony transactions to flood the system and render all transactions collected invalid.

They won't come after you for political affiliations

They will come after you for your indiscretions. Words spoken or written, unguarded, can be incriminating for any number of crimes, or used for blackmail.

They will use your information about yourself to control you, not to punish you. They WANT you to be afraid that you will be exposed for your thoughts, or your relationships, or some action you have taken. Then you belong to them.

That's why Ron Paul is so dangerous...they don't have anything on him, and he knows it. A guiltless man is a man you can't control.

Think about this:

Say you have an Android phone, and you have a bunch of friends with Android phones... even if you don't input any information about yourself in your email account, your friends have likely tied your information with your email account just for the sake of identifying you.

And even if I'm totally wrong about this, I still believe they have their ways...

"He did not come into the world to condemn it, but to save it." - John 3:17

"Well, you know it's like I always say 'it ain't government work if you don't have to do it twice.'" - Jerry Gergich

Email account is anonymous until you send or receive email

When you send email, it is in readable plain text. The message also shows where it came from and where it is going to. It the NSA is data mining all email, it doesn't matter if they have who the email account is registered to because they can figure out all they need to know from email traffic analysis.

We all want progress, but if you're on the wrong road, progress means doing an about-turn and walking back to the right road; in that case, the man who turns back soonest is the most progressive.

The pinpointing it on obama

The pinpointing it on obama is bs. Theyve had the tech to do this from before him and it includes recording every call. Not that obama the great fing liar (pretty much ran on key points of pauls platform in 2008) would do anything to get rid of this garbage.

Because nothing says a free

Because nothing says a free country like a government that watches and keeps track of everything you do. Just be glad we live in America and not some evil communist country. Now go listen to to Toby Keith sing about how free and wonderful we are.

I despise what you say

but sad thing is it is true.

Me too brother. Sad but true.

Me too brother. Sad but true.

Yes, of course.

Here's the way it works.

They use the tax money to build sophisticated collection systems.
Then they collect everything on everybody.
Then, if you ever oppose the political aspirations of the elite, or become "inconvenient" to them for any reason, they pull up everything you've ever communicated, and find something that they can trump up some charge against you on. Then they railroad you into prison, and you are out of their hair.

It's basically for "selective enforcement" purposes, so that they can target their opponents, political or otherwise.
Kind of a sophisticated blackmail system.
