19 Signs That America Is Being Systematically Transformed Into A Giant Surveillance Grid

You are being watched.  The control freaks that hold power in the United States have become absolutely obsessed with surveillance.  They are constantly attempting to convince the American people that we are all “safer” when virtually everything that we do is watched, monitored, tracked and recorded.  Our country is being systematically transformed into a giant surveillance grid far more comprehensive than anything George Orwell ever dreamed of.  If you still believe that there is such a thing as “privacy” in this day and age, you are being delusional.  Every single piece of electronic communication is monitored and stored.  In fact, they know that you are reading this article right now.  But even if you got rid of all of your electronic devices, you would still be constantly monitored.  As you will read about below, a rapidly growing nationwide network of facial recognition cameras, “pre-crime” surveillance devices, voice recorders, mobile backscatter vans, aerial drones and automated license plate readers are constantly feeding data about us back to the government.  In addition, private companies involved in “data mining” are gathering literally trillions upon trillions of data points about individual Americans each year.  So there is no escape from this surveillance grid.  In fact, it has become just about impossible to keep it from growing.  The surveillance grid is expanding in thousands of different ways, so even if you stopped one form of surveillance you would hardly make a dent in the astounding growth of this system.  What we desperately need is a fundamental cultural awakening to the importance of liberty, freedom and privacy.  Without such an awakening, the United States (along with the rest of the planet) is going to head into a world that will make “1984″ by George Orwell look like a cheery story about a Sunday picnic.

The following are 19 signs that America is being systematically transformed into a giant surveillance grid….

#1 New Software That Will Store And Analyze Millions Of Our Voices

Did you know that there is software that can positively identify you using your voice in just a matter of seconds?

Law enforcement authorities all over the U.S. are very eager to begin using new Russian software that will enable them to store and analyze millions of voices….

‘Voice Grid Nation’ is a system that uses advanced algorithms to match identities to voices. Brought to the US by Russia’s Speech Technology Center, it claims to be capable of allowing police, federal agencies and other law enforcement personnel to build up a huge database containing up to several million voices.

When authorities intercept a call they’ve deemed ‘hinky’, the recording is entered into the VoiceGrid program, which (probably) buzzes and whirrs and spits out a match. In five seconds, the program can scan through 10,000 voices, and it only needs 3 seconds for speech analysis. All that, combined with 100 simultaneous searches and the storage capacity of 2 million samples, gives SpeechPro, as the company is known in the US, the right to claim a 90% success rate.

#2 Unmanned Aerial Drones Will Be Used Inside The U.S. To Spy On You

Unmanned aerial drones have been used with great success by the U.S. military overseas, and now the U.S. government is promoting their use to local law enforcement authorities all over America.

The following is from a recent GAO report….

“Domestically, state and local law enforcement entities represent the greatest potential users of small UAS [unmanned aircraft systems] in the near term because they can offer a simple and cost effective solution for airborne law enforcement activities”

That report also discussed how there are 146 different models of these drones made by 69 different companies throughout the United States….

“According to an industry trade group, local law enforcement can potentially choose from about 146 different types of small UAS being manufactured by about 69 different companies in the U.S.”

Since our overseas wars are slowing down, somebody has got to keep these drone companies in business.

So the goal is to eventually have thousands of these drones spying on all of us.

In the years ahead, our skies will likely be filled with these things.  Many of them are incredibly quiet and can gather information about you from far above.  In fact, one could be directly over your home right now and you may never even know it.

In fact, the U.S. government is already using some of these unmanned drones to quietly spy on farmers in Nebraska and Iowa according to a recent article by Kurt Nimmo….

Obama’s Environmental Protection Agency is using aerial drones to spy on farmers in Nebraska and Iowa. The surveillance came under scrutiny last week when Nebraska’s congressional delegation sent a joint letter to EPA Administrator Lisa Jackson.

On Friday, EPA officialdom in “Region 7” responded to the letter.

“Courts, including the Supreme Court, have found similar types of flights to be legal (for example to take aerial photographs of a chemical manufacturing facility) and EPA would use such flights in appropriate instances to protect people and the environment from violations of the Clean Water Act,” the agency said in response to the letter.

#3 High Tech Government Scanners That Can Secretly Scan You From 164 Feet Away

A new scanner that has just been developed can scan your body, your clothes and your luggage from 164 feet away.

According to Gizmodo, these very creepy scanners will soon be used at airports and border crossings all over America….

Within the next year or two, the U.S. Department of Homeland Security will instantly know everything about your body, clothes, and luggage with a new laser-based molecular scanner fired from 164 feet (50 meters) away. From traces of drugs or gun powder on your clothes to what you had for breakfast to the adrenaline level in your body—agents will be able to get any information they want without even touching you.

And without you knowing it.

The technology is so incredibly effective that, in November 2011, its inventors were subcontracted by In-Q-Tel to work with the US Department of Homeland Security. In-Q-Tel is a company founded “in February 1999 by a group of private citizens at the request of the Director of the CIA and with the support of the U.S. Congress.” According to In-Q-Tel, they are the bridge between the Agency and new technology companies.

Their plan is to install this molecular-level scanning in airports and border crossings all across the United States.

#4 The DNA Of Newborn Babies Born All Over The United States Is Systematically Collected

These days, the invasion of our privacy begins just after birth.

Did you know that the DNA of almost every newborn baby in the United States is systematically collected and stored in databases?  Unfortunately, most new parents don’t even realize what medical personnel are doing when this takes place….

The DNA of virtually every newborn in the United States is collected and tested soon after birth. There are some good reasons for this testing, but it also raises serious privacy concerns that parents should know about.

States require hospitals to screen newborns for certain genetic and other disorders. Many states view the testing as so important they do not require medical personnel to get parents’ express permission before carrying it out. To collect the DNA sample, medical personnel prick the newborn’s heel and place a few drops of blood on a card. There is one question that new parents rarely ask: What happens to the blood spots after the testing is done? This is where newborn screening becomes problematic.

#5 Twitter Is Being Used To Monitor You

Hopefully you understand by now that nothing you do on the Internet will ever be private again.

According to a recent article by Susanne Posel, Twitter is being used as a law enforcement tool more than it ever has been before….

Twitter has released a report confirming that the US government leads the world in requesting information on their citizens. The Transparency Report shows the US government has made requests that are infringing on American privacy rights. Twitter states that “we’ve received more government requests in the first half of 2012, as outlined in this initial dataset, than in the entirety of 2011.”

#6 Your Cell Phone Is Spying On You

If you want to have no privacy whatsoever, own a cell phone and carry it around with you constantly.

Your cell phone is constantly tracking everywhere that you go and it is constantly making a record of everything that you do with it.

For example, did you know that authorities are using cell phones to record the identities of people that attend street protests?

The following is what one private investigator recently told a stunned audience….

One of the biggest changes is the ability to track your physical location. I’m sorry I came in at the end of the previous talk. I heard them talk about surveying cell phones with a drone, in a wide area — this is something that is done routinely now. I can tell you that everybody that attended an Occupy Wall Street protest, and didn’t turn their cell phone off, or put it — and sometimes even if they did — the identity of that cell phone has been logged, and everybody who was at that demonstration, whether they were arrested, not arrested, whether their photos were ID’d, whether an informant pointed them out, it’s known they were there anyway. This is routine.

At this point, law enforcement authorities are requesting information from cell phone companies about individual Americans over a million times a year as a recent Wired article detailed….

Mobile carriers responded to a staggering 1.3 million law enforcement requests last year for subscriber information, including text messages and phone location data, according to data provided to Congress.

#7 Students Are Increasingly Being Tracked By RFID Microchips

RFID microchips are increasingly becoming a part of our every day lives.  In fact, some school districts are now using them to track school attendance.  Just check out what is happening in one school district down in Texas….

Northside Independent School District plans to track students next year on two of its campuses using technology implanted in their student identification cards in a trial that could eventually include all 112 of its schools and all of its nearly 100,000 students.

District officials said the Radio Frequency Identification System (RFID) tags would improve safety by allowing them to locate students — and count them more accurately at the beginning of the school day to help offset cuts in state funding, which is partly based on attendance.

#8 Spy Cams In Hospitals To Monitor Handwashing

Would you want a surveillance camera watching you in the restroom?

Don’t laugh – this is actually happening in some places.  The following is from a recent Natural News article….

Here goes the last great American sanctuary from intrusion- bathrooms with spy cams. Going to the bathroom has now been monitored in a hospital in NY where sensors were placed on the doors to identify workers entering and exiting and cameras placed to view sinks to insure proper hand hygiene.

#9 Spyware That Monitors The Behavior Of Government Workers

According to the Washington Post, the federal government is now actually using advanced spyware to closely monitor the behavior of some government employees while they are at work….

When the Food and Drug Administration started spying on a group of agency scientists, it installed monitoring software on their laptop computers to capture their communications.

The software, sold by SpectorSoft of Vero Beach, Fla., could do more than vacuum up the scientists’ e-mails as they complained to lawmakers and others about medical devices they thought were dangerous. It could be programmed to intercept a tweet or Facebook post. It could snap screen shots of their computers. It could even track an employee’s keystrokes, retrieve files from hard drives or search for keywords.

#10 The NSA Warrantless Surveillance Programs

Virtually every single electronic communication in the world (including all phone calls, all faxes, and all emails) is intercepted and recorded by an international surveillance network run by the NSA and several other large international intelligence agencies.

For a long time this was an “open secret” that everyone kind of knew about but that nobody ever did anything about.

Fortunately, the Electronic Frontier Foundation is now fighting back, and they have three former NSA employees on their side….

Three whistleblowers – all former employees of the National Security Agency (NSA) – have come forward to give evidence in the Electronic Frontier Foundation’s (EFF’s) lawsuit against the government’s illegal mass surveillance program, Jewel v. NSA.

In a motion filed today, the three former intelligence analysts confirm that the NSA has, or is in the process of obtaining, the capability to seize and store most electronic communications passing through its U.S. intercept centers, such as the “secret room” at the AT&T facility in San Francisco first disclosed by retired AT&T technician Mark Klein in early 2006.

“For years, government lawyers have been arguing that our case is too secret for the courts to consider, despite the mounting confirmation of widespread mass illegal surveillance of ordinary people,” said EFF Legal Director Cindy Cohn. “Now we have three former NSA officials confirming the basic facts. Neither the Constitution nor federal law allow the government to collect massive amounts of communications and data of innocent Americans and fish around in it in case it might find something interesting. This kind of power is too easily abused. We’re extremely pleased that more whistleblowers have come forward to help end this massive spying program.”

According to one of the whistleblowers, the NSA “has the capability to do individualized searches, similar to Google, for particular electronic communications in real time through such criteria as target addresses, locations, countries and phone numbers, as well as watch-listed names, keywords, and phrases in email.”

#11 Pre-Crime Surveillance Technology

Did you think that “pre-crime” was just something for science fiction movies?

Unfortunately, that is no longer the case.  A company known as BRS Labs has developed “pre-crime surveillance cameras” that they claim can identify potential terrorists and criminals even before they strike.

Yes, this sounds like a bunch of nonsense, but some law enforcement authorities are taking this quite seriously.  In fact, dozens of these “pre-crime surveillance cameras” are being put up at major transportation hubs all over San Francisco….

In its latest project BRS Labs is to install its devices on the transport system in San Francisco, which includes buses, trams and subways.

The company says will put them in 12 stations with up to 22 cameras in each, bringing the total number to 288.

The cameras will be able to track up to 150 people at a time in real time and will gradually build up a ‘memory’ of suspicious behaviour to work out what is suspicious.

#12 Mobile Backscatter Vans

Do you think that you can get away from the TSA scanners by simply refusing to fly and by avoiding all U.S. airports?

Don’t be so sure.

In fact, law enforcement authorities all over the country will soon be driving around in unmarked vans looking inside your cars and even under your clothes using the same backscatter technology currently being used by the TSA at U.S. airports….

American cops are set to join the US military in deploying American Science & Engineering’s Z Backscatter Vans, or mobile backscatter radiation x-rays. These are what TSA officials call “the amazing radioactive genital viewer,” now seen in airports around America, ionizing the private parts of children, the elderly, and you (yes you).

These pornoscannerwagons will look like regular anonymous vans, and will cruise America’s streets, indiscriminately peering through the cars (and clothes) of anyone in range of its mighty isotope-cannon. But don’t worry, it’s not a violation of privacy. As AS&E’s vice president of marketing Joe Reiss sez, “From a privacy standpoint, I’m hard-pressed to see what the concern or objection could be.”

#13 Automated License Plate Readers

In a previous article, I discussed a Washington Post article that detailed how automated license plate readers are now being used to track the movements of a vehicle from the time that it enters Washington D.C. to the time that it leaves….

More than 250 cameras in the District and its suburbs scan license plates in real time, helping police pinpoint stolen cars and fleeing killers. But the program quietly has expanded beyond what anyone had imagined even a few years ago.

With virtually no public debate, police agencies have begun storing the information from the cameras, building databases that document the travels of millions of vehicles.

Nowhere is that more prevalent than in the District, which has more than one plate-reader per square mile, the highest concentration in the nation. Police in the Washington suburbs have dozens of them as well, and local agencies plan to add many more in coming months, creating a comprehensive dragnet that will include all the approaches into the District.

#14 Data Mining

Private companies are almost more eager to invade your privacy than the government is.

In fact, there are a whole bunch of very large corporations that are making a fortune by gathering every shred of information about you that they possibly can and selling that information for profit.  It is called “data mining“, and it is an industry that has absolutely exploded in recent years.

One of the largest data mining companies is known as Acxiom.  That firm has actually compiled information on more than 190 million people in the United States alone….

The company fits into a category called database marketing. It started in 1969 as an outfit called Demographics Inc., using phone books and other notably low-tech tools, as well as one computer, to amass information on voters and consumers for direct marketing. Almost 40 years later, Acxiom has detailed entries for more than 190 million people and 126 million households in the U.S., and about 500 million active consumers worldwide. More than 23,000 servers in Conway, just north of Little Rock, collect and analyze more than 50 trillion data ‘transactions’ a year.

#15 The Growing Use Of Facial Recognition Technology

Most Americans do not realize this, but the use of facial recognition technology has absolutely exploded in recent years.

For example, did you know that there are now 32 states that use some type of facial recognition technology for DMV photos?

That is why they give you such strict instructions when you get your DMV photo taken.  They want your photo to be able to work with the database.

But the government is not the only one using creepy facial recognition technology.  The following is from a recent article by Naomi Wolf….

A software engineer in my Facebook community wrote recently about his outrage that when he visited Disneyland, and went on a ride, the theme park offered him the photo of himself and his girlfriend to buy – with his credit card information already linked to it. He noted that he had never entered his name or information into anything at the theme park, or indicated that he wanted a photo, or alerted the humans at the ride to who he and his girlfriend were – so, he said, based on his professional experience, the system had to be using facial recognition technology. He had never signed an agreement allowing them to do so, and he declared that this use was illegal. He also claimed that Disney had recently shared data from facial-recognition technology with the United States military.

Yes, I know: it sounds like a paranoid rant.

Except that it turned out to be true. News21, supported by the Carnegie and Knight foundations, reports that Disney sites are indeed controlled by face-recognition technology, that the military is interested in the technology, and that the face-recognition contractor, Identix, has contracts with the US government – for technology that identifies individuals in a crowd.

#16 Rapid DNA Testing

But what law enforcement authorities like even better than facial recognition technology is DNA testing.

The following is from a recent article by Ellen Messmer….

It’s been the FBI’s dream for years — to do near-instant DNA analysis using mobile equipment in the field — and now “Rapid DNA” gear is finally here.

The idea is that you simply drop into the system a cotton swab with a person’s saliva, for example, and the “Rapid DNA” machine spits out the type of DNA data that’s needed to pin down identity. Now that such equipment exists, the FBI is pushing to get it into the hands of law enforcement agencies as soon as possible.

#17 The FBI’s Next Generation Identification System

It was recently announced that the FBI is spending a billion dollars to develop a “Next Generation Identification System” that will combine the most advanced biometric identification technologies to create a database superior to anything that law enforcement in the United States has ever had before….

The US Federal Bureau of Investigation has begun rolling out its new $1 billion biometric Next Generation Identification (NGI) system. In essence, NGI is a nationwide database of mugshots, iris scans, DNA records, voice samples, and other biometrics, that will help the FBI identify and catch criminals — but it is how this biometric data is captured, through a nationwide network of cameras and photo databases, that is raising the eyebrows of privacy advocates.

Until now, the FBI relied on IAFIS, a national fingerprint database that has long been due an overhaul. Over the last few months, the FBI has been pilot testing a facial recognition system — and soon, detectives will also be able to search the system for other biometrics such as DNA records and iris scans.

#18 The NYPD’s Domain Awareness System

Local law enforcement agencies around the country are also spending big bucks to upgrade their surveillance capabilities.  The new “Domain Awareness System” that the NYPD just put in was described in a recent article by Neal Ungerleider….

The New York Police Department is embracing online surveillance in a wide-eyed way. Representatives from Microsoft and the NYPD announced the launch of their new Domain Awareness System (DAS) at a lower Manhattan press conference today. Using DAS, police are able to monitor thousands of CCTV cameras around the five boroughs, scan license plates, find out the kind of radiation cars are emitting, and extrapolate info on criminal and terrorism suspects from dozens of criminal databases … all in near-real time.

But don’t think that you are getting off the hook if you don’t live in New York City.  The truth is that Microsoft has big plans for putting in these kinds of systems nationwide.

#19 Trapwire

Did you know that a huge network of incredibly advanced spy cameras is currently being installed nationwide?

Yes, I know that it sounds like something off of a television show, but this is actually true.  It is called “Trapwire”, and I described this emerging system in one of my recent articles….

“You are being watched.  The government has a secret system – a machine – that spies on you every hour of every day.”  That is how each episode of “Person of Interest” on CBS begins.  Most Americans that have watched the show just assume that such a surveillance network is completely fictional and that the government would never watch us like that.  Sadly, most Americans are wrong.  Shocking new details have emerged this week which prove that a creepy nationwide network of spy cameras is being rolled out across the United States.  Reportedly, these new spy cameras are “more accurate than modern facial recognition technology”, and every few seconds they send back data from cities and major landmarks all over the United States to a centralized processing center where it is analyzed.  The authorities believe that the world has become such a dangerous place that the only way to keep us all safe is to watch what everyone does all the time.  But the truth is that instead of “saving America”, all of these repressive surveillance technologies are slowly killing our liberties and our freedoms.  America is being transformed into an Orwellian prison camp right in front of our eyes, and very few people are even objecting to it.

An RT article was one of the first news sources to reveal some of the shocking details about this new program….

Former senior intelligence officials have created a detailed surveillance system more accurate than modern facial recognition technology — and have installed it across the US under the radar of most Americans, according to emails hacked by Anonymous.

Every few seconds, data picked up at surveillance points in major cities and landmarks across the United States are recorded digitally on the spot, then encrypted and instantaneously delivered to a fortified central database center at an undisclosed location to be aggregated with other intelligence. It’s part of a program called TrapWire and it’s the brainchild of the Abraxas, a Northern Virginia company staffed with elite from America’s intelligence community. The employee roster at Arbaxas reads like a who’s who of agents once with the Pentagon, CIA and other government entities according to their public LinkedIn profiles, and the corporation’s ties are assumed to go deeper than even documented.

So after reading all of the information above, is there anyone out there that still doubts that America is being transformed into a giant surveillance grid?

The frightening thing is that there is a large percentage of the American people that are aware of many of these things, but they are convinced that these technologies are actually making society “better” and “safer”.

We desperately need to wake up America while there is still time.  Please share this article with your family, your friends and your social media contacts on the Internet.

If we can get enough people to wake up, perhaps there is still enough time to turn this country in a different direction.

Will the final chapters of our history be a complete and total nightmare or will the final chapters of our history be the greatest chapters of all?

The choice, America, is up to you.

    Last week, my electric provider, Flint Energies, replaced my old electric meter ( outside ) with a so-called ” Smart Meter “. He appeared without ANY prior notification; such as by letter or e-mail or notice on a bill. ATT ( at that time ) I had a discussion wth the installer. He told me that I couldn’t opt-out! However, he assured me my usage data would remain in-house and not supplied to any government agency. I don’t want ” Big Brother ” monitoring my electrical usage or worse yet DICTATING to me how much ” juice ” I can use! I already practice energy conservation; using several measures to do so. I’m soon going to pay a visit to their main office in my area; to speak with a manager about my privacy concerns. Perhaps new blogger are unaware that Michael had an article about ” Smart Meters ” several months ago. Give it a read.

    • RegT

      Smart meters are already being used in co-operation with law enforcement to track power usage in order to identify possible pot growers and other types of potentially illicit “manufacturing”.

      • Malcolm Reynolds

        Oops. I guess I should’ve read your response first.

    • Malcolm Reynolds

      “my usage data would remain in-house and not supplied to any government agency.”

      This is a bald faced lie. Electric companies routinely report high usage consumers to the police as suspected pot growers.

    It gives a new meaning to the quote: “All the world is a stage and we are but actors on it.”
    The sophistication of the new equipment is fascinating. Soon they will be able see everything we do in the privacy of our own homes.
    Having relations with your wife? Smile, you might be on candid camera and not even know it.
    The problem with all this observation is relevance. It has to be expensive to keep observing people. See a book by Donald Westlake. Spies Like Us . . .
    In this comedy, Mr. Westlake used characters to convince the FBI to empty their garbage for years and years on the suggestion that something might be wrong. So for years the FBI emptied these fellows garbage. Every so often they put something suggestive in the garbage to keep the FBI hooked on continuing to survey them. I won’t spoil the rest of it for you.
    If you know you are being surveyed by all means manipulate them. I did when the place where I worked when Orwell happy. The entire place was bugged. I used to go around with a small fm radio and earplugs. Using a microphone with this outfit allows you to detect where the bugs are. It had a tape player on it so it was easy. Any time it made a noise I knew I had found one.
    The logistics of this informaton is what makes it unrealistic. Can you say information overload? Well there is a serious overload of information from what you have described.
    One way to tell is most taps are cheap. That means they are bleeding signals all over the place. It means N’s turn into E’ H’s occasionally turn into T’s and so forth. This only occurs when you send or receive something. The equipment bleeds all over the place.
    There are serious vulnerabilities on all this stuff.

    • kaiserin

      Supposedly they already can. What do you think fiber-optic cables are for? Sending AND receiving data…you think your cable box, Xbox Kinect, Wii, etc aren’t sending info on you? Just because you can’t see a camera on some of those things doesn’t mean it isn’t there, or isn’t using some other type technology to spy. I would be more surprised if they weren’t than if they were. The elites are control freaks and perverts. I can’t imagine wanting to see what other people are doing in their homes, I have a life of my own. The people in power sure are some sick, sick freaks!

    • geauxgeaux

      “The logistics of this informaton is what makes it unrealistic. Can you say information overload?”

      I don’t think they have any fear of being overloaded. They are putting the control grid in place, and have the means to store captured info and process it at will. Speech to text to database to location to relationships to anything electronic.
      So, they don’t have to come after you as soon as you say something “forbidden”. The data can be recorded and reviewed at leisure. So 3 years from now (or 10), when those off the cuff comments of yours at the rotary club banquet in Sheboygan make their way through the processing queue, your toast :o.
      Spooky as hell.

    Michael, the technologies are far more advanced than people could ever imagine. Facial recognition and the x-ray technologies used by the TSA have combined for the ultimate surveilance–subcutaneous vein pattern recognition.

    That’s right. In order to foil those who would try and disguise their gaits, wear disguises or hide facial features with hats, make-up or scarves–they now have the technology–from over a hundred feet away–to actually look through your skin and map out the unique vein patterns in your face or hands to identify each individual by their unique circulatory system.

    Think I’m nuts or this is sci-fi? here’s one link http://www.globenewswire.com/newsroom/news.html?d=85612

    there are dozens of other websites and downloads with info on this ability–just google subcutaneous/vein/biometrics…in fact michigan state university has an entire dept dedicated to researching biometrics….just crazy insane stuff. One has to ask the obvious question, “why would they create all of this data and identity recognition technology unless they were planning on using it? And the bigger question, can you think of even one beneficial reason to a freedom loving society for this type of monitoring?

    It’s annoying that we’re running a huge deficit, we’re massively in debt, many needs go unmet because there’s just not enough money, etc., but when it comes to surveillance of America, lots of money is spent, no questions asked. Heck, there’s not even a discussion.

    Ironically we’re paying for our own enslavement, and all too many people approve. The terrorism boogeyman is trotted out to justify all of this and We the Sheeple meekly obey.

    • Malcolm Reynolds

      What’s even more ironic is that stupid leftists recognize that ‘we’re paying for our own enslavement’ and continue to prattle on about the govt providing for people.

      HELLO IDIOT! Think about it for half a second.

    Let me add one for you.Voice Grid Nation, is the name of a voice analysis program, being put into affect. A high speed capability to match recorded speech, with the name of the person speaking. Source of said software? Russian, after all who knows better, how to spy on their own people. I can remember when the feds, would have never used Russian spy tech. Now they are as good as announcing, where this Country is headed. Welcome comrade, to the new USSR.

  • Gay Veteran

    TOTALLY agree with your article except for #8:

    “Here goes the last great American sanctuary from intrusion- bathrooms with spy cams. Going to the bathroom has now been monitored in a hospital in NY where sensors were placed on the doors to identify workers entering and exiting and cameras placed to view sinks to insure proper hand hygiene.”

    hospital acquired infections are a major cause of sickness and death in hospitals

    • kaiserin

      Then put a sink OUTSIDE the bathroom and make them wash their hands when they come out. I was just a lowly working class moron that managed a fast food restaurant and that’s how we did it. Walk in the door, wash your hands. Walk out of the bathroom, wash your hands. Come from the front to the back where food prep was done? Immediately go to the sink and wash your hands. It could be seen from all areas and people always did it. We ALWAYS passed our food safety checks and never had one incidence of food-borne illness when I was there. I don’t see why it couldn’t work in a hospital. There is ZERO REASON WHATSOEVER to be OK with sensors and monitoring equipment in the bathroom! Maybe it’s because I’m a woman but I have always been paranoid about using public restrooms, people are always putting cameras in there to spy and get upskirt, etc., videos. There is nothing more dehumanizing and degrading than people watching and listening to you in a moment like that. I guess men don’t worry about it so much…lucky bastards.

    I would think that Michael you would agree with the left that this is not acceptable. Those on the right use the intellectully bankrupt arguement that if you have nothing to hide this is not important.

      I’m confused. The CIC is a Democrat. This stuff is not only going unchecked under this administration but it’s advancing.

      The left says it’s against this but that does not make it so anymore than their words verses actual votes with Free Trade.

      • Malcolm Reynolds

        Gary is the type of democrat that whined about Bush wiretapping people calling terrorist countries (which I was against),

        but has absolutely no issue with

        Obama expanding that by 300+% to include citizens NOT calling outside this country,
        deciding the executive has the right to murder American citizens,
        lock up citizens without charges or
        if you’re black racists you have the right to interfere with polling locations and make explicit terrorist threats against whole segments of the population.

        in other words, Gary is a slack jawed moron.

    • Malcolm Reynolds

      “Those on the right use the intellectully bankrupt arguement that if you have nothing to hide this is not important.”

      Yea, Gary, there are those idiots on the right that make the argument.

      “agree with the left that this is not acceptable”

      In your dreams. The left believes govt control and interference is good and justifyable IN ALL CIRCUMSTANCES in the first place.

    When throwing out the Book of Revelation readers should always be informed that the writer “John” was experiencing these kind of events happening in the Roman Empire in his time. The ‘mark’ was being used for some time in some parts of the Roman Empire.
    If the ‘mark’ was introduced now it would likely be to scare Christians because we tend to be so fearful and paranoid.
    Jesus called us to ‘be of good courage’ and we live in fear. Poor match up for Christ-followers wouldn’t you say.
    Let Jesus write in your heart “I have overcome the world.” and please remember he who WAS ‘ruler of this world’ was ‘cast out’ through Jesus death and resurrection.
    We need to meditate on Psalm 2 and remember Yahweh laughs and holds them in scorn who plot against His Anointed. Let’s laugh at all this silliness among the powers of darkness.
    They must hold America to be a threat to go to all this trouble to destroy and nullify her. Rise. Be Americans in the best sense of the word. Chose to be free and not fearful.
    Like Jesus – scorn even death.

    Truly we are the end of time,money where to run or hide, the safest place to be right now is in Christ Jesus. In Christ there is no fear, “There is no fear in love; but perfect love casteth out fear: because fear hath torment. He that feareth is not made perfect in love.” -1 John 4:18

    9/11 led to a mass surveillance, paranoia and “terrorists attacking us by flying planes into a trade centers from Afghanistan, even though 90% of Afghans are unaware of 9/11..” Next, suspected terrorists — all Americans in — detained in Gitmo.

  • Barney

    Someone asked what we can do about it.

    I think we all know the answer to that, but to be more specific would be “illegal” according to their “laws”.

    We’ll be making our own – sane – laws soon, and these creeps will find they’ve fouled all the escape routes this time.

    If Americans actually knew the TRUTH about the Cheka/GPU/OGPU/NKVD, who led and very disproportionately manned these entities, and how these organizations were instrumental in establishing Communism in the USSR, they would be terrified at their coming fate.

    • kaiserin

      Whatever you want to believe, dude. It’s obviously crazy to think that the elites have a vested interest in holding on to their money and power, they really care about you and have your best interests at heart! Why not do a little reading and research before you bring your smarmy condescending attitude in here and start name-calling? Maybe it’s because I’m a scary crazy but I will never understand people like you. Why do you bother? Because you just have to feel superior to someone, anyone, else? If you do have a schizo brother then you know that reasoning with crazies does no good, so why are you here posting about a bunch of internet people? If you want to help someone “see the light” then why not start with your crazy brother? Isn’t it enough for you to be the “sane” one, doesn’t that give you your ego boost that you so desperately crave? Don’t you have to be at the gym in 26 minutes, or at the BMW dealership, or watching football? Maybe you should clear your busy important person schedule and make an appointment with a psychiatrist to figure out why you need to feel superior to those with opinions that differ from your own. I feel for your brother…poor guy. Not because he’s a schizo but because he has you for a brother. Keep those eyes tightly closed, and be sure to defend the mainstream with your last breath! You might get to live. But probably not, the elites don’t treat those with a family history of mental illness very well. See you in the FEMA camps!

  • Michael

    This if off topic, but I wanted to share some cool stuff with you guys.

    Did you know that God had His people conduct a “dress rehearsal” for the birth of the Lord Jesus Christ every year for more than a thousand years before Jesus was born?

    God had His people gather every single year on the exact day when Jesus would be born, in the exact region of Israel where He would be born (Bethlehem is about 5 miles away from Jerusalem), and He had them sleep in humble, temporary shelters to foreshadow the way that Jesus would come into the world.

    In essence, God had His people set up temporary “manger scenes” every single year for over a thousand years in advance of the birth of Christ.

    It is called “The Feast Of Tabernacles”, and this feast begins once again this year on Sunday evening.

    So how do we know that Jesus was born during the Feast of Tabernacles? If you are curious, check out these YouTube videos….

    State Senator Mike Doherty took a really strong stand against the TSA when they first rolled out cancer-scanners and invasive pat downs.

    He sponsored a petition people from every state can sign

    • kaiserin

      And they’ll just laugh and rip that petition up. If you want it to stop, then STOP FLYING. Period. Hitting these scumbags in their pocketbooks is the only thing that might get it to stop. Signing petitions and the like is a colossal waste of time and does nothing. Not that it matters, they’re going to be setting up roadblocks and checkpoints on the highways soon enough so there really won’t be any other alternative to air travel. Really, what people should’ve done is armed open rebellion but that will NEVER EVER happen (can’t miss football and there’s a sale at the mall!) so I’m not even scared to say it. The TSA, CIA, FBI, DHS and all the other alphabet agencies know it too. So everyone, enjoy your molestation, you’ve earned it!

  • Anonymous Poem

    T’was the night before elections,

    And all thru’ the town,

    Tempers were flaring

    Emotions ran up and down.

    I, in my bathrobe

    With a cat in my lap,

    Had shut off the TV,

    tired of political crap.

    When all of a sudden,

    There arose such a noise,

    I peered out my window,

    Saw Obama and his boys

    They had come for my wallet,

    They wanted my pay

    To hand out to others

    Who had not worked a day!

    He snatched up my money,

    And quick as a wink,

    Jumped back on his bandwagon

    As I gagged from the stink.

    He then rallied his henchmen

    Who were pulling his cart.

    I could tell they were out

    To tear my country apart!

    ‘On Fannie, on Freddie,

    On Biden and Ayers!

    On Acorn, on Pelosi’

    He screamed at the pairs!

    They took off for his cause,

    And as they flew out of sight,

    I heard him laugh at a nation

    Who wouldn’t stand up and fight!

    So I leave you to think on this one final note…

    IF YOU DON’T WANT SOCIALISM GET OUT AND VOTE !!!!

    Oh yes, we certainly are being watched. I lived in Stone Harbor NJ, a small but highly affluent shore town for years and while I did nothing more than most of the other ordinary young people in my town, the police were convinced I sold drugs. Yes, I smoked weed back then. But I watched one dealer after another get arrested over the years and I decided it wouldn’t ever be worth it. Nevertheless, the cops labeled me a drug dealer and proceeded to try and destroy my life. One night I was at a party where the cops unlawfully entered the home and arrested just about everyone there for underage drinking. I hate alcohol and I wasn’t old enough to get pinned for buying it so I was the only one who didn’t get arrested under those supposed auspices. However, I found out the next day that the cops were happy not to have anything to bust me for because they went to work slandering my name. They told my friends I was a crack dealer, had been arrested for selling coke and heroin in school; none of which was true in the slightest. They said I’d been arrested for assault which again isn’t true, but I actually have a simple assault charge on my record that never actually transpired. The cops would follow me everywhere! I couldn’t believe how hard I had to work just to stay one step ahead of them so that me and my friends could smoke and chill in peace. But I was so secure in the fact that I wasn’t selling drugs that I taunted the police. I put a sticker on the Chief’s driver side window that said, D.A.R.E. Dare to Keep Cops off Donuts. Donut Abuse Resistance Education. But they ended up getting the last laugh. The cops spent year after year trying to catch me using by the book procedures but because I WASN’T SELLING DRUGS, the blue oinkers decided they would frame me. I am not kidding about that. One day I was minding my own business and was approached by a gorgeous woman who asked if I sold weed. I said that’s not really my thing but I had some to smoke with her. She said no she needed to buy it, but I wasn’t optimistic about finding any. I really wanted to find some for her but only because she was smoking hot and I stopped thinking with the head on my shoulders, if you catch my drift. So I decided I would pretend to help. I turned to look at the payphone and said I don’t really know who to call. The whole town bought their weed off the same guy and he didn’t have a cell phone or pager. Low and behold though he magically shows up. To shorten the story I briefly introduced the two, and they went to a shop a block away to do the deal. My friend worked there at the time so I went to say hi to him and to see if this girl would stick around. The dealer gets the stuff off his supplier and he sells her a bag and that was that. I had no more involvement. Yet a month later cops were at my door to arrest me for some very serious charges, including a trumped up second degree felony that would have cost me ten years in prison if I took the case to trial like I wanted to….and should have. It turns out that hot ass girl was a badge carrying undercover police officer. She mentioned the name of a friend of mine when I asked how she knew about me. He got arrested earlier that summer but isn’t one to squeal on his friends; especially a friend who he knows is no drug dealer. But all he had to do was say he knew me and because they included him as a so called anonymous informant or tried to make it seem that way. The real informant was the damn drug dealer who just magically appeared like a box of lucky charms magically disappears. He was planted there so that I’d approach him and he was the one who set up the thing in the first place. Had I taken it to trial the case would have immediately fallen apart because they couldn’t hide the truth from the jury as they did with the grand jury who indicted me. They bluffed me with four very serious, albeit totally false charges, and I should have known something was up after I told the prosecutor that either he gave me probation or I was taking it to trial and he budged right away. Nevertheless, I had to plead guilty to something and the rest of the charges remain on my record and it really doesn’t matter that the word “dismissed” is attached to them. I still struggle to find employment and I wonder why I’m attending graduate school to become a historian and professor knowing my record will probably keep me from finding work anywhere. I can get everything expunged, but for many employers, a sealed record is akin to being a potential serial killer and may end up hurting me as much as my record hurts me now. I am a decent human being who just wants a job where I can work hard and make at least some kind of a living. I’ve been living off student loan money for a long time and it isn’t fair. I was subjected to being followed and harassed for years and now because that very same offending police force I can’t find work to save my life! I’m no deadbeat and I hate not being able to help my family financially because of crimes I was purposely set up for through subversion and coercion.
