Spying - Photo by Pascal KirchmairIs it okay for Barack Obama to spy on reporters?  Is it okay for government spooks to record their calls, monitor their online activity and collect their emails whenever they want?  Well, according to a shocking new poll conducted by Pew Research, 64 percent of investigative journalists believe that the government is already collecting data from them right now.  Sadly, very few of them are publicly voicing objections.  We are rapidly becoming the type of “Big Brother” society that George Orwell once wrote about, and most Americans are just going along for the ride.  One journalist that is making waves is former CBS News reporter Sharyl Attkisson.  In her new book entitled Stonewalled: My Fight for Truth Against the Forces of Obstruction, Intimidation, and Harassment in Obama’s Washington, she claims that she has evidence that the government remotely activated her computer numerous times, monitored her keystrokes and even buried incriminating documents very deeply on her hard drive.  She has filed a lawsuit, and hopefully this will result in the public shaming of those involved in this spying.  With each passing day, we are becoming a little bit more like Nazi Germany, and if we continue down this road America will eventually be completely transformed into a totalitarian hellhole.


Have we really gotten to the point where virtually everyone knows that the government is spying on them but we just accept it as a fact of life?

How in the world can we have “freedom of the press” if the government is constantly looking over the shoulders of journalists?

When I first learned about this shocking new survey of journalists that I mentioned above, I was absolutely stunned…

In a survey of investigative reporters that makes Richard Nixon’s enemies list look like child’s play, nearly seven in 10 said they believe that the Obama administration has spied on their phone calls, emails and online searches.

According to a Pew Research Center survey of 454 media figures, 64 percent “believe that the U.S. government has probably collected data” from their calls and email and eight in 10 believe just being a journalist jumps the chance Uncle Sam is spying on them.

The survey follows multiple reports of actual spying by federal officials on reporters, and the White House’s effort to track down those who leak information to reporters despite long-forgotten promises to be the most transparent administration ever.


As a nation, are we going to put up with this kind of thing?

Or could it be that we are already so whipped into submission that we are incapable of even objecting to Big Brother?

Our control freak politicians wish to monitor and control every area of our lives.  One of the latest areas where there is a renewed push for control is vaccines.  A recent outbreak of measles has lawmakers all over the nation in a rush to make vaccinations mandatory.

In the state of California, for example, new legislation would eliminate all exemptions from vaccination…

Responding to an outbreak of measles that has infected more than 100 people, two California lawmakers said on Wednesday they would introduce legislation to end the right of parents in the state to exempt their children from school vaccinations based on personal beliefs.

This is being done even though it is indisputable that far more children die from the MMR vaccine than die from the measles.  The following numbers come from a recent article by Dr. Lee Hieb

1. Since 2005 (and even before that), there have been no deaths in the U.S. from measles, but there have been 86 deaths from MMR vaccine – 68 of them in children under 3 years old. And there were nearly 2,000 disabled.

2. In countries which use BCG vaccinations against tuberculosis, the incidence of Type I diabetes in children under 14 is nearly double. (“Infectious Disease in Clinical Practice” no. 6 pages 449-454, 1997)

3. As reported in Lancet in 1995, inflammatory bowel disease (i.e. Crohn’s and ulcerative colitis) is 13 times more prevalent in persons vaccinated for measles.

4. In a nested case-control study within the General Practice Research Database (GPRD) in the United Kingdom, patients who had a first MS (Multiple Sclerosis) diagnosis recorded were compared with controls. The authors concluded that immunization with the recombinant hepatitis B vaccine is associated with a threefold increased risk of developing MS (Hernan et al., 2004). No increased risk of MS was associated with other vaccines, which included tetanus and influenza vaccinations.

5. In 1982 William Torch, a prolific researcher and publisher on Neurologic topics, presented a paper (later published) at the American Academy of Neurology reviewing SIDS deaths. He reported that in 100 consecutive cases, 70 percent of SIDS deaths occurred within three weeks of pertussis vaccination.

Over the years, countless numbers of children have been killed or permanently disabled by vaccines.  At this point, more than 3 billion dollars has been paid out to the victims.

But you never hear about any of this on CNN or MSNBC, do you?

And once they force everyone to receive their vaccines, Dr. Hieb wonders what is next

If you think the government has the right to forcibly vaccinate people – for the good of society – what is to prevent them from forcibly sterilizing people, or forcibly euthanizing people, or forcibly implanting a tracking device – for the good of society?

If you think that forcible sterilization would never happen, you are wrong.

In fact, it is already happening in the UK

A mother of six with an IQ of 70 should be sterilised for her own safety, the Court of Protection has ruled.

The Court heard that a further pregnancy would be a “significantly life-threatening event” for both the mother and child.

Mr Justice Cobb said the woman had the “same human rights” as everyone else and this was not a case of “eugenics”.

He has authorised health and council services to intervene and perform the sterilisation.

This is where our society is heading.

We are becoming a society where the government is god, and where all of our life decisions are made for us by control freaks that believe that they know better than everyone else.

Unfortunately, we are so addicted to the things that are entertaining us that most of us never even bother to notice what is happening to our society.  I found the following news story earlier today, and I thought that it was a great metaphor for what is happening to us as a nation.

The mother of three young children found abandoned and locked inside a Washington home has admitted to using meth and told the court she is pregnant with a fifth child.

Amanda Foley and Mark Dorson, both 33, were arrested this week after their children were found on Saturday alone locked in a filthy run-down Lake Stevens house, starving and shivering in 40-degree temperatures.

The children, aged seven, three, and 11 months, were living ‘among animal feces and human excrement’, according to court documents.

Just like that young mother, we are so addicted to entertainment that we can’t even see what is happening to the future of this country.

Most of us would live in our own filth until it piled up to the ceiling as long as we were being entertained.

Meanwhile, everything that this country is supposed to stand for is being destroyed.

Wake up America.

    There is nothing left, that will wake up the majority.When I used to try to tell people, how out of hand things are getting. At least I used to get an argument, or they would say they did not agree. No it seems I mostly get blank stares. You heard all the people yelling about vaccines. I ran into one, screaming that the unvaccinated endangered everyone. I asked how could they endanger, anyone who had been vaccinated? You guessed it, just a blank stare.

    • kfilly

      Spot on as your comments usually are. I agree. Things are going downhill fast, and the Amerikan zombies don’t care. I tried waking people up. Never again. They are too indoctrinated and too stupid to get it. They cannot connect simple dots. They cannot question anything as they have been taught to be obedient slaves. Hey, look the NFL draft will be on in two months.

    • krinks

      I always ask them (on vaccines) “If they are so safe then why do populations that do not vaccinate such as the Amish have no cases of autism and why do the Japanese that have the lowest number of mandatory vaccines have the lowest rates of autism?”. Their heads explode trying to answer.

      When they start to mumble incoherently I add, why is there a Vaccine Court which removes direct liability of the vaccine industry for the side effects of their product, that have given out quite a few seven figure judgments?

      Even EBT cards stopping working, their money becoming worthless and they can´t find jobs to feed even themselves?

    Obama spying? Isn’t he just passing the torch that Bush/Cheney/Rumsfeld created with the creation of DHS, the Patriot Act and illegal NSA spying?

    Who started all this? Better yet…who will end it? Not Obama for sure.

  • DJohn1

    Does that mean Obama is actually listening to anyone but himself?
    Well I guess any port in a storm to get someone in power to listen.
    I think it is silly. The logistics alone are staggering to spy on each and every one of us. So you have to turn it over to automated computers to do the spying. The computers look for key words.
    Will we then resort to nursery jingles to communicate unhampered?
    Humpty Dumpty had a great fall. And all the king’s horses and all the king’s men, could not put Humpty together again.
    That is a historic under ground jingle used to pass a message when censorship in another country was king.
    Lord only knows what Mary had a lamb, its fleece as white as snow meant. Was someone pregnant that should not be? Lamb would be a key word for innocence.
    Or you use key words instead of the word everyone knows you mean. The slang of the present generation might be an example.
    There was a comedy book produced by a well known author. I think they even made a movie of it. It was called “Spies, like us!”
    It was all about baiting the spy agencies here to collect these creative people’s garbage free of charge!
    I do not remember if they had them cleaning the apartment or not.
    The point is these two hippies of the 70s had the spy agencies eating out of their hands until something serious happened.
    Sometimes I still take that movie and rent it when I can find it. Should have bought it years ago.
    I think it is about intelligence agencies gaining power by increasing staff to handle all the input they get. Unfortunately it is all garbage collection. When something like 9/11 happened they did not report it in advance.
    We are a nation of bureaus. Those bureaus gain power over all of us by writing confusing regulations to the tune of about 100 a day.
    It has little to do with the U.S. Congress. The amount of regulation the IRS has written over the years is staggering.
    The EPA is not very far behind them if at all. The last number I have is 20 years old. They had 10 semitruck load full of regulations. It would take years to read it all.
    Putting the champion of all bureaus in charge of health care insurance is the finest way I know to have the whole thing thrown off the books, eventually.
    Even now, if you were capable of getting hold of an IRS agent or 10 you would get 8 different answers to a question. That is documented about 4-6 years ago. Reporters did it and made the agency really look bad.
    It did not do any good. They are still there.
    The key to resolving our debt problem is to fire all the bureaus and start over with the key words Keep It Simple Stupid!
    I think this spy thing is because those in power over the governing of all of us are afraid, very afraid of what is going on right now and outlined very well by Michael in his articles. So they want to know what we are doing and what we are thinking. What they do with that is any body’s guess as they have regulated due process off the books with security rules. Congress voted it in and both parties voted for it.
    They are looking at a financial collapse. And if and when that happens, it effects millions of Americans in every day life. They could very easily lose their jobs. Or they all might be thrown out of office if everyone is starving.
    I have all the faith in the world that these bureaucrats will survive. They have an excellent track record in history of doing just that.
    My comment is spy away. If one has nothing to hide then it is worthless effort on someone’s part and provides them with a job when they are not looking at porn on line. You might even con them into emptying your garbage for free.

      The purpose is to downgrade this country so that TPTB will able to be god like in their view. Satan wants to be god but he is not and this is what have going on in this country and it is very subtle but it will be the case.

      • DJohn1

        The problem with TPTB is no one knows who TPTB are.
        Do they answer to a supernatural being like Satan? Or is it a group of very powerful individuals using money and influence to rule over everything?
        When we get into using religion as a pointing tool, it has to be backed up with scripture.
        What I am saying is that the closest we are going to get is figuring out who pushes the buttons when and where.

    Only a complete and utter imbecile would be surprised about this, in a country that has legalized torture, legalized kidnappings, legalized drone-bombings of kids playing soccer 7422 miles away from here, secret courts, secret warrants, legalized police brutality, legalized financial fraud, massive wiretappings of absolutely everyone and everything, a worldwide web of clandestine detention/torture centers overseas, a state-controlled news media, legalized food poisoning, legalized electoral fraud, a corrupt judiciary, legalized highway robbery (aka Civil Asset Forfeitures), legalized market data manipulation, and that forces its population to buy worthless, overpriced “healthcare” plans practically at gunpoint.

    Enjoy your newly-earned Third World Kraphole status, Amerika!!!

    • seth datta

      Its worse than spying – it is a method of oppression and control, financed by bankers and their ilk, who own obama and agencies like the NSA and its counterparts abroad. Global communism.

  • krinks

    The worst part of this spy-gate story in that 90% of journalists support Obama and would vote for him again if they could.

    I bet euthanization already does happen in America, at least in rare situations (besides gov’t murdering prisoners). Imagine if someone has a life-threatening condition and is taken to a Catholic hospital. The Church finds out that the patient is a big critic of Catholicism. They’ve told many people that the Church is evil but they’re not famous enough to make headlines if they die. If the patient remains in critical condition then this is the perfect opportunity to put them to sleep and no one will ever suspect it.

    As far as the vaccinations go, Naturalnews has a lot of good stories about that subject. The guy who runs the site does have some ethical issues that I touched on before, but most of the articles seem to check out.

  • Bob

    They’re spying on everyone, all the time. Period.

  • Bob

    Only 64% thought they being spyed on? I would have assumed that 100% of them knew they were being spyed on since 100% of them all lie and read the fake script.

  • Joe

    Please renew the Patriot Act, Mr President. This is years in the making and you wouldn’t want to be the one to mess it up.
