We've heard over and over and over that the NSA is only collecting "metadata." However, it seems like it has been implied (maybe directly said) that if there is suspicion of deviant activity, then the NSA (or the concerned 3-letter agency) can later go back and listen to the actual content of the calls. Therefore, someone is also collecting the content of every call made whether foreign or domestic.
My question is: Who is storing this data?
Maybe it's because Glenn Greenwald has stated that he's got more revelations about this that he has yet to release. So maybe the WH doesn't want to respond yet because they're not sure exactly how much is known.
Senator Rand Paul is having a luncheon in Greenville, SC at the end of the month, then Paul is heading over to Columbia,SC for a BBQ dinner. The BBQ dinner is $75 a person (it goes to SCGOP).
State Senator Tom Davis, a huge liberty ally, just announced on his Facebook page that he will be introducing Paul at the BBQ. And it's hard not to speculate that Davis will announce he's challenging Graham, followed by a Rand Paul endorsement. In case you aren't aware of Tom Davis' contributions to liberty...
As some of you may know, I don't have cable. However, I was at the gym today, and watched Wolf Blitzer interview that tool from the Washington Post - the other reporter that Snowden released his information to.
The guy was a total tool. Snowden wanted to give the guy an exclusive. I can't even remember his name now - the reporter - because he was such a tool. I can't even find a video of that pathetic interview.
The guy was scared sq!ntless to have this info dumped in his lap. He went to his editors. The went to the NSA.
He said his greatest fear is that nothing changes.
His life is changed forever. He could have stayed on the down low in Hawaii collecting big paychecks, blowing it every night on booze and blow. But he didn't.
He donated to Ron Paul. He's one of us. How do we help him? How do we make sure his biggest fear is not realized? That nothing changes?
We have to reach beyond ourselves, our own small group and become part of a tidal wave, like the one in Japan, that washes over the entire Apparatus.
Edward Snowden's bravery to courageously and fearlessly tell the truth reminds me of Todd Anderson in the fictional movie Dead Poet's Society. When Todd stands on his desk bravely shouting "O Captain My Captain" he destroys the bystander effect, His brave actions allow his classmates to follow his courageous example standing up for their beloved teacher Mr. Keating.
Snowden's heroic example provides an opportunity for all in similar situations to his to also speak out and tell the truth.
Look upon his face. This is an American Hero. He had the balls to sack his life for all of us to become more aware of what this country is becoming.
He laid his life down on the line and he is no different than a soldier and should be given the highest honor and a Nobel Peace Prize (preferrably Obama's).
His name is Edward Snowden...
Federal Government spying and collecting of every internet keystroke, phone call, and public video surveillance data of Every American Citizen, stored for eternity on government computer servers, used to be a Conspiracy Theory.
Now it's just a "Vast Government Conspiracy to Subvert the 4Th Amendment" with every branch of government conspiring against the American People, proven as fact by a Top Secret Document Leak.
"Subversion" refers to an attempt to transform the established social order and its structures of power, authority, and hierarchy.
I had to post this when I saw it. Now, I want people to look at this post from the angle of an interesting development. I've followed some of the Bilderberg happenings for the past 3-4 years and they have all seemed to gain slight momentum in regards to press and grassroots activity at the events where there was once none. At best, since the first I've seen, they have remained a thing of fringe intrigue.
I’m sure this post will cause a gamut of emotions but I have come to a point in my life where I feel just as much warrant and right to declare my stance on war, and why it is I am proud to have never served.
Dear Mr. President,
I’m not a terrorist. I can’t prove a negative, but I’ll do all I can to differentiate myself from those I perceive to be engaged in acts of terrorism.
I’ve never preemptively invaded a nation based on lies, nor have I ever associated myself with anyone who has authorized such action.
I’ve never dispersed radioactive munitions throughout a region, with seemingly zero regard for its impact on a civilian human population, nor associated with anyone who has authorized such action.
I’ve never bombed Iraq, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Libya, Somalia or Yemen.
Now who didn't see that coming?
Yeah it used to be pretty well encrypted and it used to be peer to peer....but Microsoft bought it and quickly turned it into a surveillance tool for the state. Like really quickly.
Still using Microsoft products? Ask yourself what else they are doing.
There has been alot of speculation as to why the MSM has suddenly decided to report on all of these scandals the way they have been.
Many have come to the conclusion that they are butt hurt because of the AP scandal. I'm not so easily thrown off my scent. Why on earth would any DP enthusiast think for even one second that the MSM has woken up?
Some key things to remember:
1. The first scandals to break were prior to the AP/DOJ scandal. All together the scandals have hardly touched the presidents approval rating. Interestingly the hits just keep on coming.
All these scandals being uncovered to the point where even the MSM is covering them. And they keep getting bigger and bigger. Even the NY Times is saying the Obama administration has lost all credibility.
On top of that, there are plenty of scandals that can be opened back up (Seal Team 6 deaths, Fast and Furious, etc - not to mention 9/11 and Boston).
On the financial front, we've also got the USD taking a big hit today. And Peter Schiff said if tomorrow's job numbers aren't good, we could see a major drop in the dollar again.
Tuesday morning I hit my head on the bathroom cabinet really hard. It knocked me to the floor. It hurt, but I had four new sales people coming in for their second day and I could not take the day off.
At 10am, I'm writing on the whiteboard when I started to hear my words echo. I realized it had taken me a very long time to write this one sentence, and after looking at it, it wasn't even coherent.
I stopped the training and went to the doctor. He told me I had a mild concussion and to watch out for nausea and dizziness. He told me to go home and rest for the day.
