San Bernadino Shooting America in the Foot

Unlike a slew of nitwits who assumed facts on the recent shooting in San Bernadino I have been waiting for some facts to surface before speaking up. It turns out that Muslim jihadists were to blame, not crazy white men as many gun control advocates jumped to believe. Additionally these folks were being watched by the FBI? Stellar monitoring skills, clearly.

Apparently the shooting coincided at a place where active shooter scenario drills have been performed monthly for some time. According to the LA Times when a women saw the activity durig the shooting she texted "Drill started." Also, the Washington Times reported the couple behind the shooting recently travelled to Saudi Arabia and were meeting with four others in the US who were watched by counterterrorism officials.

So despite the virtual obliteration of privacy and surveillance on America this attack happened. So what is the point if it results in a complete failure?

More gun control will not solve the issue as the guns were obtained llegally to boot. Two amendments on expanded background checks applying to guns in private sales and online purchases failed to pass in the Senate. The White House is considering an Executive Order to bypass Congressional approval. In the clip below a reporter asked if stricter gun control would have prevented the shooting and White House press secretary Josh Earnest replied, “Of course not.”

Something stinks. Like the visa process the shooter Tashfeen Malik went through giving a fake address and previously declaring loyalty to IS on Facebook. The State Department spokesperson Elizabeth Trudeau replies to a reporter in the video below that she is satisfied with the their work. Perhaps the point of the terrorist watchlist is to watch them perform acts of terror? Then strip Americans of more rights each time.

Great job invading Iraq on false pretenses and facilitating this virulent strain of Al-Qaeda. Without ISIS a flesh eating parasite would not be able to fluorish from dumping all the bodies in the street. Nor would the military industrial complex be able to thrive and the dimishing of security and privacy fo all.

Privacy as we once knew it is dead. We now find ourselves in the unenviable position of being monitored, managed and controlled by our technology-specifically the technology employed by the government against the American citizenry. As a result, warns John W.

Range-R peers into homes despite 2001 ruling against

Small homes, vs rich bastard mansions

Warrantless monitoring with GPS devices was declared unconstitutional by the Supreme Court in 2012.

Thanks for the link to a better article. It is still messed up if they can tell nobody is home then they can enter without a search warrant easier. Less intrusive than a camera is still intrusive. In a hostage situation then the issues over a warrant are not as relevant but in this era of the war on terror where everyone is a suspect this is no surprise. Even if it is like glaucoma vision it is still seeing into homes.

NSA Reform Bill Defeated

Instead of putting restrictions on the panopticon the abstract threat of terrorism was sufficient in the Senate to prevent undermining the fourth amendment against unreasonable search and seizure. Currently the NSA documents everything. Anyone in "the know" did not need to hear about Edward Snowden having preemptive awareness in Operation Echelon among other previously called conspiracy theories of mass surveillance. The bill barely lost by two votes and would have stopped blanket data collection of people who are not suspected of any specific crime. Instead, we are all suspected criminals!

The terrorists the US and other master manipulators helped create are useful to justify depriving Americans of freedom we are supposedly spreading across the globe. Apparently freedom does not include privacy.

Perhaps we should just go shopping so the terrorists do not win as Bush suggested immediately after 9/11. Buy "shit you don't need with money you don't have" as George Carlin noted. If we keep shopping and slaving to pay debt or be consumed by it, we couldn't possibly learn anything useful and remain mentally inferior and dependent on an abusive paradoxical and hypocritical system. Imagine if you knew foreign languages and could communicate with people with vastly different viewpoints and travel with ease? If only I did that rather than collect ball-handling sports cards and comic books.

'ISIS! 9/11!' NSA reform bill killed in US Senate over terror fears

 

Small planes used to collect cell phone data on Americans

This short two-minute segment from ABC discusses the use of small aircraft mounted with faux-cell towers referred to as dirt-boxes to ping devices and identify everyone in range of the flight path. The term dirt-box is interesting since it is likely collecting dirt on random Americans. The military and police even use fake cell towers on land to track people.

So-called conspiracy theorists were ripped on for knowledge of warrantless spying in the USA and have gotten scarcely any recognition for being ahead of the curb. With the advent of smartphones tracking people, listening and using their cameras has reached unprecedented levels of surveillance. Many cell phones have no ability to even remove the battery, the one sure way to know a device is off.

Justifications for sacrificing privacy for security have been layers ranging from rapists and drug users to the endless abstraction of the war on terror. Society is a disturbed and unnatural construct as a result of various forms of oppression and exploitation. A monetary system based on debt insures failures to fester. The lamestream media use of advertising effectively creates a slew of viewers who have a void in their souls they think must be filled with products and pills. Add to that the tendency for control freaks to commit false flags to give further cause for control. Certainly there will be no end of issues in society that can be used promote the validity of these schemes as we approach a complete electronic panopticon. People do change their behavior when being watched nullifying the argument as noted by Glenn Greenwald in this TED Talk "Why privacy matters."

Glenn Greenwald was one of the first reporters to see - and write about - the Edward Snowden files, with their revelations about the United States' extensive surveillance of private citizens. In this searing talk, Greenwald makes the case for why you need to care about privacy, even if you're "not doing anything you need to hide."

Russian website exposes insecure webcams to world

From baby cameras to universities and more around the world a Russian website is exposing the security vulnerability of people leaving default passwords on their devices. Governments are demanding the site be taken down but their mission is a success as they have certainly brought attention to the issue.

More foreknowledge of 9/11 attacks, Atta casing airports, ignored

Of course there is a slew of ignorant comments on Reddit debating whether this suppressed info would have helped, or if it would have made it to GW Bush's desk.

There was plenty of intelligence that was intentionally suppressed, as clearly make public by the heavily gagged FBI translator Sibel Edmunds, who explained in the documentary Kill the Messenger:

“1) Osama bin Laden was planning a major terrorist attack in the United States targeting four or five major cities; 2) the attack was going to involve airplanes; 3) some of the individuals in charge of carrying out this attack were already in place in the United States; 4) the attack was going to be carried out soon, in a few months.”
