Scope of phone records seizure causes alarm; data collection goes beyond Verizon

Scope of phone records seizure causes alarm; data collection goes beyond Verizon | Plant Based Nutrition | Scoop.it
The Obama administration on Thursday defended its secret seizure of the phone records of millions of U.S.
Skip Stein's insight:

"Lawmakers of both parties on the Senate Intelligence Committee said the wholesale domestic surveillance has been going on for seven years, and that it’s necessary to prevent terrorist attacks."

Looks like this whole program was an abject failure as they didn't find any terrorists by this means or they would be bragging how effective it worked, liked they have about Bin Laden!  So what are they using all this information for if it isn't to find a terrorist?

Confirmed: US government records ALL private telephone calls

Confirmed: US government records ALL private telephone calls | Plant Based Nutrition | Scoop.it
Confirmed: US government records ALL private telephone calls
Skip Stein's insight:

We live in an Orwellian society where the government monitors, records, tracks everything.  Does it really make us safer?  The worst part is that they LIE and try to hide the fact that everything is monitored.  WE THE PEOPLE have no knowledge of it and they won’t tell you who has access to YOUR information.

 

The IRS is clearly corrupt and politicized as recent events clearly show by their own admission!  What other agencies are collecting information, spying on your every word, comment, activity but YOU haven’t a clue as to who is getting that information.  IRS, FBI, NSA, TSA, who controls how this information is used?  Will companies eventually pay off corrupt agencies like this for information before hiring you?  How about your medical records?  Now going to be controlled by the DHS and IRS?

 

The government is TOO BIG and way TOO POWERFUL.  Remember, absolute power corrupts absolutely as we see from the current occupant of the Executive Branch of our government.  Congress is owned for the most part by special interests, lobbyists and big corporations (like Monsanto) and do their bidding.  They pass laws that restrict small/medium business from competing with the big multi-nationals.

 

Remember everything you say on the phone, write in email, post on the Net IS monitored (hello big asshole brother!).  We still can regain control but not for long as the technology nooses tighten; pulled by corrupt egomaniacal politicians.

In response to khedlu17:

This article talks about how the US government records all private telephone calls. When did the gov't start recording phone calls? How is this not violating the fourth amendment? 

Joe Smith's comment, May 12, 3:07 PM
The government should have a limit to how much they can monitor or phone calls. It' can help them in their work but sometimes it violates our privacy. It violates the 4th amendment
pdowds30's comment, May 15, 3:16 PM
This relates to government because it is the government. They are violating the fourth amendment and disrespecting every citizen on a personal level. It doesn't make sense to have a constitution if the people implementing it can't even follow it.

Skip Stein's insight:

Truth or fiction?  Who knows?  With all the lying and scandals in Washington, can we trust ANYTHING that comes out of the corruption pit holes of these idiots?  All the 'secrets', lies and fabrications confuse the facts and TRUTH.

 

It is the nature of big government and absolute power such as Obama is attempting to consolidate (DHS, IRS, TSA, NSA, etc.) and all the spying, eavesdropping and surveillance ALWAYS leads to corruption and loss of FREEDOM of the Citizens and WE THE PEOPLE.  DO not become distracted by Obama's lies and diversions.  He is sitting back and watching the chaos. NOT LEADING or demanding accountability, but as Nero, he is watching as Washington Burns.

GMO genetic pollution alert: Genetically engineered wheat escapes experimental fields planted across 16 states
Skip Stein's insight:

Now what will Monsanto, it has unleashed pollution to the FOOD SUPPLY. Remember, once in the biosphere, GMO laced plants will cross and contaminate like uncontrolled weeds. There are NO natural enemies to this pollutant, except for the 'super bug' spawn created by GMO plantings.  Is this just want Monsanto really wanted, total pollution and control over the Planetary Food Supply?  Why is the USA about the only country that does not somehow regulate, label or otherwise restrain this rampant damage?  Corruption in Washington.  Monsanto and others PAY Congress via massive contributions, advertising campaigns (mostly lies) and lobbyists bribes to get them to pass ridiculous bills that protect the perpetrator and NOT THE CONSUMER!

Skip Stein's insight:

Keep it up people.  Companies are terrified of social networks where we can get to the TRUTH.  Keep hammering on them.  If Facebook censors, move everyone over to Google+; much more freedom to post.  FB won't continue to censor if WE protest and leave!  Even so, consider Google+; lots of intelligent folks there (some wackos too but it IS the Internet!).

 

Keep it up.  REFUSE to purchase GMO laced products.  Get the FREE smart app FOODUCATE (www.fooducate.com) and scan every bar code on packaged food before you purchase it!  It will tell you the nutritional content as well as if it is suspected of GMO content.  Even if it is suspected, refuse to purchase it, tell the store managers their isles are full of unhealthy and potentially poisonous food.  It WILL have an impact!
