“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.

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.

The fire began May 30 near a utility station and was contained on June 11.

“Kelly Huston, deputy director of the California Emergency Management Agency, says the move is required before LA County can qualify for federal emergency highway funds to repair roadways damaged by the fire,” said a report.

Communication companies help surveillance: Former CIA official

“According to UK newspaper, the Guardian, Snowden has only released part of the intelligence he has. During his revelations of the US surveillance program, Snowden says the US government and US communication companies are involved.

“Although related companies like Google and Microsoft are trying to exclude themselves from the scandal, a former CIA official says communication companies are accomplices in the surveillance.”

Ray McGovern, a former CIA official, told CNTV News:

“What’s happened here is the U.S. companies have become joined in a way with United States Government in such a way that you have the corporations, the government, the media and the congress and judiciary all pretty much joined in a complicit attempt to circumvent the constitution of the United States. There’s zero concern on the part of the communication companies to violate the law. They know that they’ll be protected, even if it’s ex post facto…”
