“The Constitution was being violated on a massive scale”

Posted by feww on March 11, 2014

“And that’s something the public ought to know about”

“The interpretation of the Constitution had been changed in secret from ‘No unreasonable searches and seizures’ to, ‘Hey, any seizure is fine; just don’t search it,” said Edward Snowden, former National Security Agency contractor. “And that’s something the public ought to know about.”

So far we’ve been listening patiently to Mr Snowden, but some of the things he’s now saying make little or no sense.

The Government has been violating the Constitution on a massive scale  long before Mr Snowden worked for the NSA. Take the massive violation of the U.S. Constitution in the December 1998 bombardment of Iraq (code-named Operation Desert Fox), which was a prelude  to occupying the country illegally, for example.  And when the U.S. forces began their illegal occupation of Iraq in 2003,  Mr Snowden was 20 years old. [He joined the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) as a systems administrator and telecommunications systems officer three years later, in 2006. Editor]

Speaking from Russia on Monday, Mr Snowden told attendees at the SXSW Interactive conference in Austin, Texas that encryption was still a powerful deterrent against NSA mass electronic surveillance. [No doubt Google, Microsoft, Oracle  and the likes, the knights in shining armor, would come to our rescue. Editor]

“There is a policy response that needs to occur, but there is also a technical response that needs to occur,” said Snowden. “It’s the development community that can really craft those solutions and make sure we’re safe.”

However, most people with the average knowledge of using emails and Internet have little or NO idea how to use encryption. Besides, whatever can be encrypted can just as easily be decrypted.

Cocooning Effect

Where Mr Snowden fails big time to convince us of his mission to inform the uniformed is his interpretation of the U.S. Government. He wants us to believe that the government exists in a vacuum; they are the bad guys  who violate the Constitution.

Where was Mr Snowden all this time? Was he living in a cocoon, or does he believe his audiences are?

Who exactly is the Government? What exactly is it made up of? Can the government exist in the absence of corporation? Is it the 4-year-at-a-time government that runs the country, or the “permanent” establishment?

Mr Snowden has previously touched on the commercial nature of the NSA data gathering, but has failed to enlighten us on the connection between the “corporation,” “establishment” and NSA.

Google: Tired of Being “Closet Evil”

Posted by feww on December 17, 2013

Your worst nightmares about Google…

Google buys major military robot maker

The US military contractor Boston Dynamics was acquired by Google for an undisclosed sum last week. It’s the 8th robotics company bought by Google this year.

Google has confirmed it would continue the existing military contracts with the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA),  an agency of the United States Department of Defense responsible for the development of new technologies for use by the military.

Excerpts from NBC News

Google is on a robot shopping spree, and its recent purchase of a military robot maker has some wondering what exactly the company intends to do with its own zoo of electronic creatures that creep, crawl, and climb.

It may seem odd for the Internet search giant to purchase a Boston Dynamics, a company that makes rugged machines that can run up to 29 mph, traverse rocky terrain and hurl cinder blocks up to 17 feet. The company is the eighth robot maker Google has snatched up. But the deals also indicate that the Internet giant and pioneer of self-driving cars is serious about a robot-filled future.

UNSURPRISINGLY, Google’s master plan remains a secret

So far, Google isn’t sharing much about the purchases augmenting it’s newly-launched robotics division. “It is still very early days for this, but I can’t wait to see the progress,” Larry Page wrote in a Google+ post, when the New York Times revealed news of the robotics operation.

Google seems to be piecing the ultimate walking, dexterous robot that can sense its surroundings — Boston Dynamics joins an assortment of newly acquired robot makers with a variety of strengths.

“Transformation of our society” [from what to what?]

“I think it will be the transformation of our society — how we work, how we learn, take care of our sick, conduct our commerce, explore, handle disasters, fight wars… everything,” Peter Diamandis, big-thinker and founder of the X-Prize Foundation, wrote in a Google+ post on Friday.

Started by Marc Raibert, a roboticist who taught at MIT and Carnegie Mellon University, and author of “Legged Robots That Balance,” the company channels funding from DARPA and various arms of the military into a steadily expanding family of robots that can tackle almost any terrain.

Boston Dynamics about to switch into stealth mode

With Google at the helm, will Raibert and BigDog be muzzled? So far, Boston Dynamics has been open, even brazen, about showing off the latest in its lineup of awe-inspiring yet fearsome machines via regularly posted YouTube videos. Founder Raibert told a gathering of roboticists at the International Robotics and Intelligent Systems conference in Tokyo in November that he tracked Boston Dynamics’ YouTube view counts, and was proud of how BigDog had become an Internet sensation. Meanwhile, earlier acquisitions Meka and Redwood Robotics, have closed down their websites and retreated into stealth mode.

Google’s Partner in Crime Mass Electronic Surveillance “unconstitutional”

Federal District Judge Richard Leon has ruled that the electronic spy agency’s practice was an “arbitrary invasion,” in his ruling in a Washington DC federal court on Monday.

Judge Leon called the NSA’s surveillance program “indiscriminate” and an “almost Orwellian technology that enables the government to store and analyze the phone metadata of every telephone user in the United States. He suggested that James Madison would be “aghast” to learn that the government was encroaching on liberty of  Citizens to such extent.

However, the Judge, appointed to the bench by George W. Bush in 2002, stayed his injunction “in light of the significant national security interests at stake in this case and the novelty of the constitutional issues,” allowing the government time to appeal the ruling.

“I cannot imagine a more ‘indiscriminate’ and ‘arbitrary invasion’ than this systematic and high-tech collection and retention of personal data on virtually every single citizen for purposes of querying and analyzing it without prior judicial approval,” Judge Leon wrote in his 68-page ruling. “Surely, such a program infringes on ‘that degree of privacy’ that the founders enshrined in the Fourth Amendment,” which prohibits unreasonable searches and seizures.

Google Caught Spying, Lying, Again!

Posted by feww on November 8, 2013

Google’s Door-to-Door Spying Plagues Brazil

Google has committed “the biggest known data protection violations in history.” —Johannes Caspar, chief of data protection office in Hamburg, Germany.

Google’s Street View Program enables the company access to private Wi-Fi networks, intercepting personal data.

Street View Program is a KNOWN method for spying on the public. Given their record of mass deception, Google must be harvesting data via other means in addition to the NSA route.

Brazilian judges have given the U.S. Internet Goliath until Saturday to hand over private data collected through its Street View program, according to reports.

The decision by a court in Brasilia follows a complaint lodged by the Brazilian Institute of Computer Policy and Rights, said reports.

Google has photographed Rio de Janeiro, Sao Paulo, Belo Horizonte and other major Brazilian cities.

Google is shaken but not stirred, so to speak, because the maximum fine for failure to comply with the court order is just $500,000.

Google has denied any link to the mass surveillance programs conducted by the National Security Agency (NSA), which is done on behalf of corporate America(!)

NSA targets for cyber-surveillance in Brazil included President Dilma Rousseff, and the state-run energy giant Petrobras, as well as tens of millions of ordinary Brazilians.

Whereas NSA is on record for admitting to large scale collection of metadata, Google’s surveillance programs include contents, physical addresses and just about every bit and byte of information transmitted through Wi-Fi and cable networks.

Google’s data collection programs run directly in at least 72 countries,  and indirectly in dozens of other countries through the NSA and others.

“Google and other leading tech companies have expressed opposition to the creation of Brazil-based databases of local customer information, as proposed by Brasilia in a bid to combat foreign spying,” said a report.

Google was fined $7.0m for collecting people’s personal data without permission in 38 US states, earlier this year,

As a part of its settlement, Google also agreed to destroy emails, passwords, and web histories collected by Street View cars between 2008 and 2010, however, there is no way to enforce or verify compliance. In fact all of the stolen data may have already been integrated and plugged into untraceable programs.

Germany also fined Google for illegally recording information.  Caspar, chief of data protection office in Hamburg, called the data theft “one of the biggest known data protection violations in history.”

In fact, Hamburg prosecutors had originally attempted to prosecute Google under criminal law, however they were forced to drop the case, prompting the data protection office to pursue it as an “administrative offense.”

Google has denied any link to the U.S. electronic mass surveillance[sic,] mainly conducted by the National Security Agency (NSA). But, the NSA data collection has a commercial format; the U.S. government and its officials have no direct use whatever for the data other than to hand it over to the U.S. corporations in return for financial favors including lucrative post-retirement positions in the “private” sector.

Twitter Hacked Venezuelan President Account

Posted by feww on November 3, 2013

Venezuela’s president Maduro claims Twitter hacked his account, removing 6,000 followers – We believe him!

Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro said on Thursday that Twitter had attacked his account, as well as the accounts of other government officials, removing their followers.

“We must achieve independence, and we have to think about deep and radical ways we can free ourselves from these multinational corporations that have monopolized social networks,” Maduro told the ministers on Saturday, referencing Twitter, Inc.

Maduro says his Twitter account was attacked to spark unrest and suspend the upcoming December 8 elections.

Meantime,  Venezuelan government officials confirmed more than 6,000 of the president’s twitter followers were suspiciously removed.

Communications Minister Rodriguez told reporters that about 6,600 of the President’s Twitter followers had disappeared from his account within 10 minutes.

There has been no response from Twitter’s press office in San Francisco, as of posting.

Twitter Account of FIRE-EARTH

In July 2011, we privately asked some of our colleagues and organization members to participate in test cases concerning the tweet counts on a number of specific entries posted on the blog.

Our suspicions were confirmed when the twitter counts stayed at zero in all of the cases, despite numerous tweets that had been entered by different account holders.

FIRE-EARTH abandoned its twitter account thereafter.

A Rally Against Mass Surveillance

Posted by feww on October 26, 2013

The NSA is spying on everyone, and they are NOT doing so in the interest of “national security”

The rally organizers and attendees should demand to know on whose behalf NSA is spying.


About the Rally

The NSA is spying on everyone’s personal communications. It’s operating without any meaningful oversight.

On October 26th, the 12th anniversary of the signing of the USA Patriot Act, we’re holding the largest rally yet against NSA surveillance. We’ll be handing more than a half-million petitions to Congress to remind them that they work for us — and we won’t tolerate mass surveillance any longer.

A stellar group of whistleblowers, activists, researchers and others from both sides of the political spectrum will be speaking at this historic event.
