NATIONAL TYRANNY – THE “MESSIAH” REVEALED AS TYRANT
NSA collecting phone records of millions of Verizon customers daily
(Guardian, UK) Exclusive: Top secret court order requiring Verizon to hand over all call data shows scale of domestic surveillance under Obama
Nathan: Thanks to Debby for this one. Verizon has 120 MILLION customers: more than one out of every three Americans.
Is there ANY reason NOT to condemn this filthy administration, this “Occupy DC and the World” regime as a tyrannical, fascist, rogue and CRIMINAL organization? Is there ANY justification for not tearing this administration and its entire apparatus apart? Is there ANY reason that ANY thing demanded by this regime NOT be resisted in every way possible, including the use of deadly force? The Bush White House did the same thing – and deserves (even after the fact) the same condemnation. Indeed, is there any statute of limitations that means that Bush and his officials cannot be tried for these crimes? Scumbags like Lindsey Graham claim that if we aren’t talking to terrorists on our phones, we shouldn’t worry. What sickness allows people to say this without being chased out of town in tar and feathers? And listen to what the “messiah” has to say:
Obama administration defends NSA collection of Verizon phone records
(Guardian, UK) White House upholds ‘critical tool in protecting the nation from terrorist threats’ as senior politicians condemn practice.
OBAMA THE TYRANT
The White House has sought to justify its surveillance of millions of Americans’ phone records as anger grows over revelations that a secret court order gives the National Security Agency blanket authority to collect call data from a major phone carrier. Politicians and civil liberties campaigners described the disclosures, revealed by the Guardian on Wednesday, as the most sweeping intrusion into private data they had ever seen by the US government. But the Obama administration, while declining to comment on the specific order, said the practice was “a critical tool in protecting the nation from terrorist threats to the United States“. The secret Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court (Fisa) granted the order to the FBI on April 25, giving the government unlimited authority to obtain the data for a specified three-month period ending on July 19. Under the terms of the blanket order, the numbers of both parties on a call are handed over, as is location data, call duration, unique identifiers, and the time and duration of all calls. The contents of the conversation itself are not covered.
Nathan: Oh, how reassuring! I guess we can partly blame ourselves: we have allowed this thug to pull the wool over our eyes for five years, so he thinks he and his scumbag minions and his filthy traitorous allies in Congress (Democratic AND Republican) can get away with this shopworn excuse AGAIN.
This is probably only the tip of the iceberg: Why get Verizon but not AT&T and T-Mobile and even Viaero? And this pitiful excuse expired a long time ago. We MUST fight against this, whatever it takes. THIS is more than just an excuse for impeachment, this is a reason for rebellion. Any organization which is doing this – even if it is only in Verizon – will ignore EVERY freedom, EVERY right, sooner or later: this way lies the Arbeitslager, the Gulag, the concentration camp, the executions by bullets to the back of the head in front of ditches, to rapes and torture and hard labor not just to “enemies of the state” but to anyone who happens to be in the way. Graham and the rest see the Tea Party Movement as enemies and threats as much as Al Queda or Hezbollah or Cuban Communists (if not MORE).
Mama’s Note: Yes, of course. And yet, this is no worse than many thousands of acts of previous “administrations,” going clear back to Washington’s tax on whiskey. The abominations of theft, war, murder, slavery, conscription, confiscations, and all the rest are simply not news. And as long as ordinary people are willing to tolerate any of it, nothing will change.
