PRISM: Hack The Planet

Most people would consider “Hack the planet” to be some sort of black-hat hacker battle cry. It might more accurately describe the unconstitutional efforts of the United States of America’s NSA spy agency.

From a comment on the story:
““The intelligence community’s top-secret “Black Budget” for 2013, obtained by Snowden, lists TURBINE as part of a broader NSA surveillance initiative named “Owning the Net.””

Translation: They declared a Technology War against this world”, using our own computers against us.

TURBINE is an illegal NSA program, supported by GCHQ and who knows what other intelligence services around the world.

The big questions now, has anyone found this malware, and will AV companies provide us with protection or are they controlled by the NSA?

WikiLeaks: How the NSA Endangers a Free Society

Some NSA efforts to destroy Assange and intimidate people supporting Wikileaks have been revealed.

ANTICRISIS GIRL was a system to spy on Wikileaks searchers.

This other item is big news too, because Matt’s been an important journalist covering Wall St. crimes.
UPDATE: and Matt’s left First Look.

That Old Joke

How can you tell a spy is lying to Parliament? Their lips are moving.
Or at least I’d assume they were moving while he was telling us that they didn’t conduct mass spying on Canadians, while also defending illegal mass “meta-data” spying on us.

Harper Government Is a “Porn Spy”

The last Parl. Sec. for Stephen Harper is being charged with election fraud. The present one isn’t a bright bulb either.

Calandra appears to be confusing the Greenwald story of the NSA spying on the porn habits of those it seeks to smear, and attributing the muckraking NSA’s behaviour to a respected journalist who’s exposed nasty habits of the Harper Government’s spook allies.

WASHINGTON — The National Security Agency has been gathering records of online sexual activity and evidence of visits to pornographic websites as part of a proposed plan to harm the reputations of those whom the agency believes are radicalizing others through incendiary speeches, according to a top-secret NSA document. The document, provided by NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden, identifies six targets, all Muslims,

The Harper regime is on the offensive after having their illegal blanket spying of Canadians’ movements in airports revealed.

Pardon?

I’d wondered why the USA wasn’t chasing after draft dodgers still.

My respect for Carter went up when I learned this.

Obama could redeem some of his failing popularity if he stood up to the NSA spy machine and pardoned Chelsea Manning, Edward Snowden, among other whistle blowers of illegal American spying programs aimed at American citizens.

PRISM: Telcos Violating Privacy

It apparently doesn’t matter if the Canadian spy agencies don’t spy on Canadians. To be clear though, the Ed Snowden leaks make it clear that they do spy on us.

Canada’s intelligence agency deliberately kept the country’s Federal Court “in the dark” to bypass the law in order to outsource its spying on Canadian citizens abroad to foreign security agencies, a federal judge said.

Federal Court Judge, Richard Mosley, has slammed the Canadian Security Intelligence Service (CSIS) for knowingly misleading him on numerous occasions.

Why does a telephone company get charged with paying $21,000 for breaching privacy, but CSIS and CSEC continue to violate all Canadians privacy in similarly damaging manners? Why the double standard in law enforcement?

ADDED: If you need me to explain why these two privacy stories go together, let me know.
1.) Canada cloud haven? The NSA is supposed to spy on non-Americans.
+
2.)CSEC admits it spies on Canadians “incidentally”.

Obama’s NSA is the East German Stasi of our time

German leader flat out states that Obama’s government is little better than the East German Stasi.

“In an angry exchange with Barack Obama, Angela Merkel has compared the snooping practices of the US with those of the Stasi, the ubiquitous and all-powerful secret police of the communist dictatorship in East Germany, where she grew up.

The German chancellor also told the US president that America’s National Security Agency cannot be trusted because of the volume of material it had allowed to leak to the whistleblower Edward Snowden, according to the New York Times.

Livid after learning from Der Spiegel magazine that the Americans were listening in to her personal mobile phone, Merkel confronted Obama with the accusation: “This is like the Stasi.””
