Stop watching us (Prism scandal)
« on: June 17, 2013, 06:12:03 am »


 Stop Watching Us.
The revelations about the National Security Agency's surveillance apparatus, if true, represent a stunning abuse of our basic rights.

We demand the U.S. Congress reveal the full extent of the NSA's spying programs.

 Dear Members of Congress,

We write to express our concern about recent reports published in the Guardian and the Washington Post, and acknowledged by the Obama Administration, which reveal secret spying by the National Security Agency (NSA) on phone records and Internet activity of people in the United States.
The Washington Post and the Guardian recently published reports based on information provided by an intelligence contractor showing how the NSA and the FBI are gaining broad access to data collected by nine of the leading U.S. Internet companies and sharing this
information with foreign governments. As reported, the U.S. government is extracting audio, video, photographs, e-mails, documents, and connection logs that enable analysts to track a person's
movements and contacts over time.

As a result, the contents of communications of people both
abroad and in the U.S. can be swept in without any suspicion of crime or association with a terrorist

Leaked reports also published by the Guardian and confirmed by the Administration reveal that the NSA
is also abusing a controversial section of the PATRIOT Act to collect the call records of millions of Verizon customers. The data collected by the NSA includes every call made, the
time of the call, the duration of the call, and other "identifying information" for millions of Verizon customers, including entirely domestic calls, regardless of whether those customers have ever been suspected of a crime. The Wall Street Journal has reported that other major carriers, including AT&T and Sprint, are subject to similar secret orders.

This type of blanket data collection by the government strikes at bedrock American values of freedom and privacy. This dragnet surveillance violates the First and Fourth
Amendments of the U.S. Constitution, which protect citizens' right to speak and associate anonymously, guard against unreasonable searches and seizures, and protect their right to privacy.

We are calling on Congress to take immediate action to halt this surveillance and provide a full public accounting of the NSA's and the FBI's data collection programs.

We call on Congress to immediately
and publicly:

1. Enact reform this Congress to Section 215 of the USA PATRIOT Act, the state secrets privilege, and the FISA
Amendments Act to make clear that blanket surveillance of the Internet activity and phone records of any person residing in the U.S. is prohibited by law and that violations can be reviewed in adversarial proceedings before a public

2. Create a special committee to investigate, report, and reveal to the public the extent of this domestic spying. This committee should create
specific recommendations for legal and regulatory reform to end unconstitutional surveillance;

3. Hold accountable those public officials who are found to be responsible for this unconstitutional surveillance.

Thank you for your attention to this

The NSA Admits That They Don't Even Bother With Warrants] [url][/url]

Representative Loretta Sanchez (D-Calif.) indicated that members of Congress learned "significantly more than what is out in the media today" during a closed briefing about the NSA last Tuesday. She stated on C-SPAN last week that NSA spying is even "broader than most people realize." She refused to divulge more information, citing security restrictions.

And would you have a problem if you stick to virtue? Fear has a reason, so has rumors.

Do you want a right to privately do wrong? Or what is the purpose? The results of your actions follow you any way. For most it's good to be remembered that a big brother is watching.

Think what even people who can read your mind know.

Sentient world simulation

“U.S defense, intel and homeland security officials are constructing
a parallel world, on a computer, which the agencies will use to test propaganda messages and military strategies. Called the Sentient World Simulation, the program uses AI routines based upon the psychological theories of Marty Seligman, among others.

(Seligman introduced the theory of ‘learned helplessness’ in the 1960s, after shocking beagles until they
cowered, urinating, on the bottom of their cages.)

Yank a country’s water supply. Stage a military coup. SWS will tell you what happens next.

The sim will feature an AR avatar for each person in the real world,
based upon data collected about us from government records and the internet.”
The continuity of government folks’ AI program and the Pentagon’s AI program may or may not be linked, but they both indicate massive spying
and artificial intelligence in order to manipulate the American public, to concentrate power, to take away the liberties and freedoms of average Americans, and — worst of all — to induce chaos in order to achieve these ends.


It "is now capable of running real-time simulations for up to 62 nations, including Iraq, Afghanistan, and China. The simulations gobble up breaking news, census data, economic indicators, and climactic events in the real world, along with proprietary information such as military intelligence. [...] The Iraq and Afghanistan computer models are the most highly developed and complex of the 62 available to JFCOM-J9. Each has about five million individual nodes representing things such as hospitals, mosques, pipelines, and people."
