We all know that privacy is a thing of the past, right? Pfff.
The government spying on everyone? That’s yesterday’s news.
But if you think you’ve heard it all when it comes to the obtrusive police state panopticon,
you’ve got another thing coming.
Here are five privacies you didn’t even realize you lost.

clubThe facilitators who led the St. Louis Presidential debate along with others who were people that had questions for the candidates, actually missed their mark by a million miles.There was no talk of what the candidates had in mind with regard to an ongoing agenda,that is:

 

  • the shredding of the U.S. Constitution and personal freedom,
  • the attack on liberty,
  • gun rights and
  • privacy issues, as well as,
  • massive intrusion through surveillance,
  • mainstream media control of the news,
  • nationalized education, (i.e. Common Core and the failings of it),
  • the internet giveaway,
  • the police state,
  • the U.N. Presence already in America,
  • FEMA camps,
  • the continuing loss of national sovereignty, and finally,
  • the danger of open borders that would combine Mexico, the U.S. and Canada into one large, but not so glorious North American Union.

    That scene would be a further expression of an already lost populace totally drenched in:

‘We the Prisoners’: The Demise of the Fourth Amendment

Leave a comment

speak truth

By John W. Whitehead

June 28, 2016

“Our carceral state banishes American citizens to a gray wasteland far beyond the promises and protections the government grants its other citizens… When the doors finally close and one finds oneself facing banishment to the carceral state—the years, the walls, the rules, the guards, the inmates—reactions vary. Some experience an intense sickening feeling. Others, a strong desire to sleep. Visions of suicide. A deep shame. A rage directed toward guards and other inmates. Utter disbelief. The incarcerated attempt to hold on to family and old social ties through phone calls and visitations. At first, friends and family do their best to keep up. But phone calls to prison are expensive, and many prisons are located far from one’s hometown… As the visits and phone calls diminish, the incarcerated begins to adjust to the fact that he or she is, indeed, a prisoner. New social ties are cultivated. New rules must be understood.”—Ta-Nehisi Coates, The Atlantic

In a carceral state—a.k.a. a prison state or a police state—there is no Fourth Amendment to protect you from the overreaches, abuses, searches and probing eyes of government overlords.

In a carceral state, there is no difference between the treatment meted out to a law-abiding citizen and a convicted felon: both are equally suspect and treated as criminals, without any of the special rights and privileges reserved for the governing elite.

In a carceral state, there are only two kinds of people: the prisoners and the prison guards.

With every new law enacted by federal and state legislatures, every new ruling handed down by government courts, and every new military weapon, invasive tactic and egregious protocol employed by government agents, “we the people”—the prisoners of the American police state—are being pushed that much further into a corner, our backs against the prison wall.

This concept of a carceral state in which we possess no rights except for that which the government grants on an as-needed basis is the only way I can begin to comprehend, let alone articulate, the irrational, surreal, topsy-turvy, through-the-looking-glass state of affairs that is being imposed upon us in America today.

As I point out in my book Battlefield America: The War on the American People, we who pretend we are free are no different from those who spend their lives behind bars.

Indeed, we are experiencing much the same phenomenon that journalist Ta-Nehisi Coates ascribes to those who are banished to a “gray wasteland far beyond the promises and protections the government grants its other citizens” : a sickening feeling, a desire to sleep, hopelessness, shame, rage, disbelief, clinginess to the past and that which is familiar, and then eventually resignation and acceptance of our new “normal.”

All that we are experiencing—the sense of dread at what is coming down the pike, the desperation, the apathy about government corruption, the deeply divided partisanship, the carnivalesque political spectacles, the public displays of violence, the nostalgia for the past—are part of the dying refrain of an America that is fading fast.

No longer must the government obey the law.

Likewise, “we the people” are no longer shielded by the rule of law.

While the First Amendment—which gives us a voice—is being muzzled, the Fourth Amendment—which protects us from being bullied, badgered, beaten, broken and spied on by government agents—is being disemboweled. More

e-Meters or e-Hackers?

In the 2001 remake of Ocean’s 11, a troupe of con artists use an over-sized green tube, “the pinch,” to black out all of Las Vegas using an electromagnetic pulse (EMP). Unfortunate as it may be for the film industry, the only such EMP catalyst that exists is a nuclear explosion.

Nevertheless, U.S. citizens worry that criminals no longer have to resort toninini nuclear weapons or other science-fiction worthy tactics to overtake the grid. In every home there will be a soft underbelly, allowing hackers to steal private data, remotely disconnect appliances, and even black out the neighborhood. The chink in the armor: the smart meter, head honcho of The Internet of Things.

A smart meter is an online utility meter that measures the consumption of water, natural gas and electricity in a home. Through wireless transmission via radio frequency (RF) wave signals, the usage data is provided to the utility company, which supposedly uses the data to “optimize” electricity rates and schedule power generation.

THE POLITICS OF HATE: SOUTHERN POVERTY LAW CENTER

“SOUTHERN POVERTY LAW CENTER
Intelligence Report, Spring 2013, Issue Number:  149
Active ‘Patriot’ Groups in the United States in 2012

The Intelligence Project identified 1,360 anti-government “Patriot” groups that were active in 2012.

Generally, Patriot groups define themselves as opposed to the “New World Order,” engage in groundless conspiracy theorizing, or advocate or adhere to extreme antigovernment doctrines. Listing here does not imply that the groups themselves advocate or engage in violence or other criminal activities, or are racist.

The list was compiled from field reports, Patriot publications, the Internet, law enforcement sources and news reports.”

Democrats Against UN Agenda 21 and the Post Sustainability Institute are on the Southern Poverty Law Center’s list of Patriot groups.  The criteria for making this list are quite interesting.  The SPLC purports to identify hate groups and to advocate for those who are being discriminated against or targeted for violence.  The SPLC mainly focuses on skinhead groups and anti-gay groups but they’re branching out and including us in their scope.  Why?

If you look at what they say above, the criteria for list selection include opposing the New World Order (does SPLC support it?), ‘groundless’ conspiracy theorizing (SPLC refuses to acknowledge objective reality), and advocating or adhering to ‘extreme anti-government doctrines’ (like life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness?).

There was a time in the past when, as gay people, we might have donated to SPLC.  About 25% of their website is devoted to fundraising for themselves.  They engage in spreading misinformation about UN Agenda 21/Sustainable Development and are themselves representing the New World Order by targeting groups who would re-erect the guarantees of the US Constitution.  Life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness extends beyond racial and social lines.  Our government exists to protect the individual.  Our rights to free speech, to our property, to our privacy—guaranteed by the Constitution.  The term ‘Patriots,’ according to the SPLC, is now under suspicion, and those who question government tactics and object to subversion, manipulation, privacy invasion, and ‘transformation’ are targeted on their list.

The Southern Poverty Law Center is a fraud and a sham.  Although they have a disclaimer that they don’t imply that we advocate or engage in violence or other criminal activities, or are racist they are fully aware that targeting us on their list may serve to chill our civil rights or turn people against us.  They are engaging in their own brand of hate speech.  It might help their fundraising but it also shines a light on their bias and willingness to go along to get along with liberty-destroying regimes.  The Southern Poverty Law Center purports to have some familiarity with Nazi tactics.  Perhaps too much.

Google: Enough with the surveillance

Google has announced that as of March 1, 2012, they will have full integration of more than 60 Apps that cover all aspects of Google on the net. Marketing their email service as being more “intuitive” might give some of us the warm fuzzies but too many of us know that intuitive is simply another of those handy-dandy word swaps used to manipulate your thinking about an issue or item. “Intuitive” simply means that Google is surreptitiously scanning and recording your mail which turns out to be “surveillance” and not intuition.

To participate in a poll asking if you will cancel your google accounts conducted by the Washington Post go HERE!

Google is not the only internet service that is using or moving to these applications, but they are by far the most malignant. To deactivate any gmail accounts go HERE!

As it is, we do not use Google search or homepage. We will be shutting down all gmail accounts by the middle of February, 2012.

The intuitiveness that gmail refers to is the scanning of your incoming and outgoing communications to determine what your interests are, where you might be going, where you might be located, what your schedule might be and who all you are communicating with. This information is not only used to direct advertising to you whether you want it or not, (and who does?) but also is recorded and handed over to government spy agencies. Political interests and beliefs, religious interests, social groups you belong to, all of your contacts and of course all those “friends” on Facebook are handed over right along with your personal communications.

Why criminal governments spy on citizens

2 Comments

Alt-Market.

by: Brandon Smith

At the very foundation of perhaps every modern day conflict between the expansive powers of unchecked bureaucracy and the dwindling freedoms of the ordinary citizen dwells the vital issue of privacy. Privacy and the right to hold personal and political views without being singled out and scrutinized by government is absolutely essential to any society which dares to deem itself “fair and just”. Ultimately, without the presence of these two liberties, and without people to defend them, a nation is ill equipped to circumvent the growth of tyranny, and anyone claiming to be “free” in the midst of such a culture is living a delusion of the highest order.
