Do we have any rights left? NO rights to Privacy. FBI spy real time on emails and chats


Where the hell is our Rights to privacy?  How is this happening?  Have we been so complacent in the U.S. that we have literally had everyone of our Rights stolen away all for "The good of the homeland?"

The FBI wants to be able to read our emails and chats as they happen.  Where is the warrants for that?   Oh but wait, the 'Wiretap Act' is what allows them to do that.   Of course as with any bills that are broad and without defined barriers the government expands them as they will.

I want people to think about that and what it means for drones in the future.  The placement of drones is very broad in the U.S.  But of course the government says "We will never abuse it".  Yeah Right!  What B.S.!  They get a bill pushed through that ultimately takes away our Freedoms!

What is this country going to look like in only 10 short years?  What kind of surveillance country will we have?  Will we end up having something in our homes that watches what we do and the government can view it in real time?

I sincerely believe there is going to be a tipping point that many will wake up at one time and when they fully realize what is happening and how we have become a Orwellian country, chaos will ensue.

Portion from article:


Despite the pervasiveness of law enforcement surveillance of digital communication, the FBI still has a difficult time monitoring Gmail, Google Voice, and Dropbox in real time. But that may change soon, because the bureau says it has made gaining more powers to wiretap all forms of Internet conversation and cloud storage a “top priority” this year.
Last week, during a talk for the American Bar Association in Washington, D.C., FBI general counsel Andrew Weissmann discussed some of the pressing surveillance and national security issues facing the bureau. He gave a few updates on the FBI’s efforts to address what it calls the “going dark” problem—how the rise in popularity of email and social networks has stifled its ability to monitor communications as they are being transmitted. It’s no secret that under the Electronic Communications Privacy Act, the feds can easily obtain archive copies of emails. When it comes to spying on emails or Gchat in real time, however, it’s a different story.
That’s because a 1994 surveillance law called the Communications Assistance for Law Enforcement Act only allows the government to force Internet providers and phone companies to install surveillance equipment within their networks. But it doesn’t cover email, cloud services, or online chat providers like Skype. Weissmann said that the FBI wants the power to mandate real-time surveillance of everything from Dropbox and online games (“the chat feature in Scrabble”) to Gmail and Google Voice. “Those communications are being used for criminal conversations,” he said.
Either way, the FBI is not happy with the current arrangement and is on a crusade for more surveillance authority. According to Weissmann, the bureau is working with “members of intelligence community” to craft a proposal for new Internet spy powers as “a top priority this year.” Citing security concerns, he declined to reveal any specifics. “It's a very hard thing to talk about publicly,” he said, though acknowledged that “it's something that there should be a public debate about.”

  1. Isn't it amazing what a false-flag attack (9/11), a few DOJ/FBI agent provocateur concocted terror prosecutions, police state laws, passed in the dead of night, without review, can do to a constitutional republic?

  2. Anyone who knows human nature can predict the future. People in power always want more and technology is providing the tools for that, so surveillance is going to increase. You can count on it. Here's some wisdom from George Orwell. He obviously knew human nature too. The future is really quite easy to see. Will we resist or comply?

    If you haven't seen the Masterpiece Theater series, The Last Enemy, I highly recommend it. It's only a few years old and already it's barely science fiction.

  3. Any laws not Constitutional need not be obeyed. Just laff at them and if they insist they have some kind of authority over you (you know the weapon) just get the posse and round 'em up and dump them at your local sheriff's office.

    Then round up the posse again and go after Barry Saetoro and senile Uncle Joe, body slam'em if you have to.

    They won't go peacefully. Not with out the "perks" you know.

    Then go home and live you normal and free lives as YOUR Constitution guarantees you. If you are, uh-um, willing to get off that couch of yours.

  4. These off-shore, tax-free corporate fascist assholes are getting desperate in their attempts to get the poor of the world to pay their carbon taxes. Now global warming is "hiding at the bottom of the ocean". What crap. What a dodge.
