Trapped - Spider And WebDo you ever feel trapped in an invisible control grid that is slowly but surely closing in all around you?  Do you ever feel like virtually everything that you do is being watched, tracked, monitored and recorded?  If so, unfortunately it is not just your imagination.  Our society is rapidly being transformed into a Big Brother prison grid by a government that is seemingly obsessed with knowing everything that we do.  They want a record of all of our phone calls, all of our Internet activity and all of our financial transactions.  They even want our DNA.  They put chips in our passports, they are starting to scan the eyes of our children in our schools, and they have declared our border areas to be “Constitution-free zones” where they can do just about anything to us that they want.  The Bill of Rights has already been eroded so badly that many would argue that it is already dead.  The assault against our most basic freedoms and liberties never seems to end.  The following are 10 ways that the iron grip of the Big Brother prison grid is tightening on all of our lives…


#1 Automated License Plate Scanners

All over the United States automated license plate scanners are being installed.  Sometimes they are mounted on police vehicles, and other times they are put on stationary locations like bridges and road signs.  These automated license plate scanners are collecting a staggering amount of information about the travel patterns of millions of innocent American citizens every single day

Police are recording and storing information on millions of license plates that aren’t related to suspected violation of the law or any known activity of interest to law enforcement, according to data collected by the American Civil Liberties Union through Freedom of Information requests in 38 states.

According to the Washington Post, automated license plate scanners recorded the locations of vehicle plates 85 million times in the state of Maryland in 2012.

And as more of these scanners get installed around the nation, the amount of information that the government collects about the movements of our vehicles will continue to increase.

#2 Government Workers Ordered To Spy On The “Lifestyles, Attitudes And Behaviors” Of Their Fellow Workers

Did you know that the Obama administration has ordered federal workers to spy on one another?

Federal employees and contractors are asked to pay particular attention to the lifestyles, attitudes and behaviors – like financial troubles, odd working hours or unexplained travel – of co-workers as a way to predict whether they might do “harm to the United States.” Managers of special insider threat offices will have “regular, timely, and, if possible, electronic, access” to employees’ personnel, payroll, disciplinary and “personal contact” files, as well as records of their use of classified and unclassified computer networks, polygraph results, travel reports and financial disclosure forms.

If you do not spy on your fellow workers and something goes wrong, you could lose your job or potentially even be prosecuted yourself.

#3 Eye Scanners In Our Schools

According to CNN, iris scanners are already going into schools all over the country, and soon they will be used in banks, at airports and at ATM machines…

In the next year, industry insiders say the technology will be available all over– from banks to airports. That means instead of entering your pin number, you can gain access to an ATM in a blink. Used in an airport, the system will analyze your iris as you pass through security, identifying and welcoming you by name.

Will we soon live in a world where we no longer use passwords and instead use our eyeballs?…

“Imagine a world where you’re no longer reliant on user names and passwords,” Eyelock CMO Anthony Antolino told CNNMoney. “If we’re going through a turnstile and you have authorization to go beyond that, it’ll open the turnstile for you, if you embed it into a tablet or PC, it will unlock your phone or your tablet or it will log you into your email account.”

#4 Biometric Chips In Our Passports

Did you know that all U.S. passports contain biometric identity chips?  The following is from a recent CNSNews.com article…

According to the website, the Enhanced Border Security and Visa Entry Reform Act of 2002 required foreigners participating in the Visa Waiver Program–which permits entry into the United States without a VISA for a limited period of time–to have these integrated circuits or chips on their passport.

“As a security measure, Congress has legislated that all countries participating in the Visa Waiver Program with the United States must issue passports with integrated circuits (chips), to permit storage of at least a digital image of the passport photograph for use with face recognition technology,” the website states.

The website also says that since 2007 the State Department has been issuing U.S. passports bearing the chips. The department did this on its own authority, and not in response to any statutory mandate enacted by Congress.

#5 All Your Financial Transactions Tracked By The Government?

Most Americans have never even heard of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, but one U.S. Senator is warning that this agency wants to keep a record of all of your financial transactions

The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) is looking to create a “Google Earth” of every financial transaction of every American, Sen. Mike Enzi (R-WY) warned today in a Senate speech opposing confirmation of Richard Cordray as CFPB director.

“This bill (creating the CFPB) was supposed to be about regulating Wall Street. Instead, it’s creating a Google Earth on every financial transaction. That’s right: the government will be able to see every detail of your finances. Your permission – not needed,” Sen. Enzi said.

#6 Complaining About The Tap Water Makes You A Terrorist?

Have you ever complained about the water?

If so, you might be a terrorist.

The following is a brief excerpt from a recent article by Anthony Gucciardi

Concerned about the high levels of arsenic in your water, or perhaps the known levels of radioactive contamination? Well you must be a terrorist, according to the Tennessee Department of Environment and Conservation (TDEC) and Homeland Security, who consider issuing such complaints to be classified under terrorist activity.

It all started when Tennessee residents in Maury County recorded an exchange with the deputy director from the state’s environmental entity TDEC, who issued a warning that complaining about low quality tap water could put you in Guantanamo.

#7 DNA Databases

The United States already has a database that contains the DNA of approximately 11 million criminals

The biggest database is in the United States — the FBI’s Combined DNA Index System, or CODIS, which holds information on more than 11 million people suspected of or convicted of crimes.

It is set to grow following a May Supreme Court ruling that upheld the right of police forces to take DNA swabs without a warrant from people who are arrested, not just those who are convicted. (Policies on DNA collection vary by state; more than half of the states and the federal government currently take DNA swabs after arrests.)

But of course authorities will never be satisfied until they have all of our DNA.  And we are definitely moving in that direction.  The following comes from my recent article entitled “The Coming National DNA Database“…

A national DNA database is coming.  Barack Obama has already said that he wants one.  A major Supreme Court decision last month paved the way for one.  The DNA of those that commit “serious crimes” is already being routinely collected all over the nation.  Some states (such as New Jersey) are now passing laws that will require DNA collection from those charged with committing “low level crimes”.  And a law that was passed under George W. Bush allows the federal government to screen the DNA of all newborn babies in the United States.  So how long will it be before we are all required to give DNA samples to the authorities?

#8 Copying Your Hard Drive At The Border

How would you feel if you went to cross the U.S. border and officials grabbed your computer and made a copy of the hard drive?

As incredible as that sounds, it is happening all the time.  As I wrote about recently, if they do take your computer, you might not get it back for an extended period of time

Two years ago The Constitution Project issued a report on the issue, “Suspicionless Border Searches of Electronic Devices: Legal and Privacy Concerns with the Department of Homeland Security’s Policy.”

The group explained: Customs and Border Protection and Immigration and Customs Enforcement “officers may detain electronic devices for significant periods of time. For CBP, detentions can be extended well beyond the minimum five-day guideline with supervisory approval. If the device is detained by ICE, the detention can last for ‘a reasonable time,’ which according to its Directive can last 30 days or more.” Neither agency sets any firm time limit.

#9 NSA Snooping

Thanks to Edward Snowden, we now know much more about NSA snooping.  Sadly, the NSA seems to want to collect every piece of data about everyone in the world that they possibly can.

And right now the NSA is building a place to store all of that data.  It is being constructed out in Utah, and it will be the largest data center in the history of the world.  It is going to have approximately a million square feet of storage space, it is going to cost nearly 2 billion dollars to build, and it is going to take about 40 million dollars a year just to pay for the energy needed to run it.  For much more on this, please see my previous article entitled “21 Facts About NSA Snooping That Every American Should Know“.

#10 Obama Now Has The Power To Seize Control Of The Internet?

Why does Barack Obama keep releasing very important executive orders very late on Friday afternoons?

Is he trying to sneak things through that nobody will notice?

For example, it is being reported that Barack Obama has just signed an executive order that will allow him to seize control of the Internet during a national emergency…

Another late-Friday afternoon release from the White House — this one on how agencies should communicate with the public in emergencies — has Internet privacy advocates crying foul over a possible power grab.

The executive order — “Assignment of National Security and Emergency Preparedness Communications Functions” — was released last Friday in the late afternoon.

This executive order is apparently worded so vaguely that it would allow Obama to do just about anything he wanted to as far as the Internet is concerned…

Essentially, it says the government can take control of private telecommunications technology, presumably including those used for the Internet, for government communications in an emergency.

“Under the Executive Order the White House has … granted the Department [of Homeland Security] the authority to seize private facilities when necessary, effectively shutting down or limiting civilian communications,” wrote the Electronic Privacy Information Center in a blog post.

Are you alarmed by all of this?

You should be.

Sadly, most Americans don’t even realize what is going on.  Most Americans are just working really hard to make it in this very difficult economic environment, and when they turn on their televisions the mainstream media doesn’t warn them that they are rapidly losing their freedoms and liberties.

Please share this article with as many people as you can.  We need people to get educated about what is happening.  What we are experiencing right now is kind of like “death by a thousand paper cuts”.  The Big Brother control grid is closing in on us in hundreds of different ways, but it is often happening so gradually that people don’t really feel it.

    Could it be possible that I am overreacting to all of this?

    Are the rest of you as alarmed about the encroachment of Big Brother in our lives as I am?


    • Eliot

      I feel alone in the sense that nobody else really cares what’s happening to the country or themselves. Glad to know that it’s only a feeling and not a fact.

    • Sequoia

      You are not over reacting,because you are constistant abou what you write.I have beenreading your blogs since the end of 2010,when I accidentaly ran across one of your blogs “24 sighns that all of america is beginning to be just like Detroit”,and I have shared the information with many people in California and Baja California and a lot of people,whom I have shared these blogs woth,translate them into Spanish.

    • WM

      I am very concerned, but also realize that it has to happen given the global alignment predicted in the Bible. America will lose it’s sovereignty and Constitution and be grafted into the global society.

      I think the reason why things are moving so fast, is the vast majority of the America population is too distracted, empathetic, and bewitched to see what is happening, you know, the very same folks who voted for obummer a SECOND time! It blows my mind how easily people will believe lies and propaganda, and how so many have lost common sense and discernment.

  • angrywombat

    Absolutely not overreacting Michael. We have truly entered Orwell’s nightmare. And the depth of it goes deeper than your list. There is no privacy or liberty left.

      Not quite but getting close. We still need the brown shirts to show up and start rounding up friends and family members who disagree with Government

  • Rodster

    This is just the beginning as TPTB transform our current society into a NWO/OWG/Agenda 21 run by the UN. I’m just as concerned about the nominee for US Ambassador to the UN. Samatha Powers is one who wants to transfer US sovereignty to the UN.

  • MarkLandHere

    Realize, the reality, this is how the 3rd Reich started…

    • Nate

      We are now in the 4th Reich and TPTB love to distract us with things that do not have direct effect on us. The sheeple seem to be more interested in watching TV and following the latest ‘holly-weird’ gossip.

  • Jodi

    I think its creepy that even if your cell phone or tablet is turned off you are still being tracked and recorded. I don’t think that we will ever see privacy again. It’s here to stay unless you get yourself completely off the grid.

  • seth datta

    You may not believe it but just so that you know for future reference. If you are a whistleblower/activist/dissident/stand up for your rights/any number of other reasons, you will be placed on a bankster/corporate blacklist where you are exposed to electronic harassment and organised stalking wherever you go in the Western countries. The governments are owned by the international banking dynasties who have gone b@tshit crazy.

    Only a computer could even begin to keep track of all this information. What is the population of the United States?

    And we all know how perfect computers are . . .

    We are essentially living in a world of technology. This technology is not even close to being current.

    I wrote about the trailing edge. I refer to the problem that Apple and Microsoft have with people that do not want to update their technology to the latest and greatest all the time. They do not want to keep making updates that take up enormous amounts of time. That is why after 13 years XP is still on a lot of computers all over the world. It is stable. It is not up to date but it works better than the garbage they put out as new technology.

    With progress comes economic chaos. I lived it. In 41 years the printing industry was revolutionized by computer technology. We went from IBM 1130s using a program on 8 level tape imputed when the machine went wrong. It was a modern day dinosaur and took up a lot of room. Then, we went to more modern equipment. A million dollars a copy of the software! It ended with software and equipment worth less than 10,000. The last equipment was standard Apples. It used Adobe Indesign with modifications for the network. The Adobe Indesign was under 400 dollars a copy.
    Then with networking on the internet, the work went to India . . . This happened over a 15 year period and was by no means unusual.

    But the increase in watching us has a side effect. Recently people rioted. 15 of them went to jail. TV monitoring security caught them in the act and it identified them almost immediately. Police immediately caught them.
    We are no longer in the world of 1960s.
    We no longer have the legal rights we had then.
    It is only a matter of time before a 50 billion(off the top of my head numbers) dollar industry like Chemotherapy for Cancer and surgeries will be obsolete. The technologies are being presented right now to cure cancer and the doctors are furious about ti. They are actually using the government to fight it.
    And that is just one incidence. How long before the rest of the cash cows of medicine are obsolete? These doctors and the pharmacy industry need to be watched very closely. Their entire financial empire is at risk.

    All of this technology has a price. Thousands of years ago the Mark of the Beast was predicted that no one would be able to buy or sell without the Mark of the Beast. Well, that time is probably very close and it does not require any Mark that I know about. The technology has outstripped the prediction.

    The eyeball id is only one of several technologies that could be used to make a national and international id system of massive size. A Hand Print is just as effective. And it does not need ink to produce one. Simply put your hand on the proper kind of scanner and it is able to produce a print that IDs you and only you.
    DNA is revolutionizing rape convictions in this country as people innocent of any crime are being released. They are suing the government.

    The problem is computers are not perfect. They are hacked every day and sometimes the data is altered.
    Computer id theft is a very big problem right now.
    If they want to know what color my s**t is in my toilet my only question is why? The financial burden of all this is way beyond the capability of the government to budget for. And it is basically unnecessary.
    We have a kid with a new toy that is very expensive. That kid is the intelligence(oxymoron) community. I suggest we need to take a very close look at their budget for the year. It might solve the national debt problem.

    There is a novel by Vernor Vinge, A Deepness in the Sky, which describes a view of ubiquitous surveillance. The author imagines a civilization such as you describe in the article above. Every device and passageway monitors the population and can deny use or access at government whim.

    During a governmental crisis the party in power attempts to use this system to lock down the population. Soon the population goes crazy and dysfunctional. Despite or because of the automated system people refuse to obey or can’t obey even to save their lives. The system collapses into chaos. As control breaks up in different sectors war ensues, nukes are used by the desperate and civilization collapses

    It would seem that we are on the way to testing such a vision. One might wonder what the consequences of total control would be. In a way Mr. Vinge’s vision is hopeful. It says such a system can’t last. This would be the final answer to the Party in Orwell’s 1984. The Party cannot be a boot in the face of the people forever. Whether they want to or not they will die first.

    “Are you alarmed by all of this?”

    Absolutely. These actions largely are underlined under the premise/concept that government ordains and revokes privileges at whim, and it forces citizens and residents to prove their innocence beyond a reasonable doubt rather than the accuser/prosecution proving the crime beyond a reasonable doubt.

    “Could it be possible that I am overreacting to all of this?”

    Frankly, no. I think that too many people buy into the premise today’s society and government are so advanced; it rendered the Declaration of Independence and US Constitution respectively a piece of paper or outdated relic of the past.
    Considering, there’s enough historical cycle precedent to determine that individual’s possessing rights, liberties, and freedoms V Collective’s mandates and privileges are about as old as civilization itself.
    People seem to forget that the US was founded during an era much of the policies set into place by the Dark Ages aka the Medieval and Spanish Inquisitions had set into motion in which using today’s lingo ‘enhanced’ interrogations were used to respectively compel confessions of guilt/prove their innocence in which many didn’t survive the enhanced interrogation techniques.

    People seem to not connect that innocent until proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt is underlined in the fact that the government is limited and does not possess the authority to revoke or ordain privileges of natural rights set codified in the Constitution as limits upon the powers of government.

    Essentially, I think that the article isn’t an overreaction, but it would be difficult to stay on topic giving these actions and their results their due. For the sake of simplicity, it is an under-reaction that unfortunately may be necessary to keep within the article’s premise.

    No discredit intended, but …

    Identifying the obvious is easy enough to accomplish. And, wringing one’s hands over what’s seen, is every bit as ‘challenging’.

    What to do? There’s the difficulty. Here’s a suggestion >>>


  • lilbear68

    the people should be concerned but they are not, they are just overwhelmed over the years by the corruption, greed and general controll that the banksters exercise over the govt.
    any more the dems and the gop are just 2 sides of the same coin with very few Real differences. we have gone from a capitalist system to full on corporate facism where the wall street banksters/corporate ceo’s dictate to the congress what laws will be passed and what rules will be tolerable. the media and presstitute corps are on their knees to the dems and are grabbing their ankles for the gop. the population demonstrates clinical insanity (repeated behavior expecting a different outcome).
    but the population doesnt care anymore at all. any disaster or war we will mumble a few meaningless platitudes but we cant care anymore. why? well the Big Game is on somewhere and we have our toys that need looking after.
