Another great article from that veritable well of political wisdom and righteous seething criticism, The Daily Rant.

Rumor has it that contributing Author Dan Bubalo has a direct line to Vladimir Putin and Oprah. Two soup cans and a string of course, to thwart the NSA… but if the NSA hasn’t got a bead on Dan yet, this should put them over the edge.

This article is a re-posting from Laissez Faire Today, a daily e-letter club site dedicated to social/political awareness in the broadest sense. The root of this site is one concerning financial matters, but they expound on a variety of other concerns as well with informative thought brought to their reading public through a continual series of timely articles, book reviews and discount book offerings. With an incredibly vast array of perspective LF defies categorization other than that which might be considered somewhat anarchistic … but in a respectable and responsible manner.

I offer here one of their latest posts, one that describes a woeful tale of totalitarian government surveillance and civil disobedience brought together with an historical perspective on the manner of the world in which we now live. Prepare to witness how our civil liberties in general and specifically our 4th Amendment rights have been under ongoing assault and rapid diminishment through manipulation and lies since no later than the latter half of the 20th Century. See how Nineteen Eighty-Four by George Orwell may well go down in history as one of the greatest philosophical treatises on liberty in Socratic dialog the world has ever witnessed.

For your reading pleasure, I present:

Thank You, RUSSIA?

August 2, 2013

Dear Laissez Faire Today Reader,

Baltimore, MD What happens when you spend a day at home searching the Internet for home appliances and maybe some back-to-school supplies? For most people, you get a lazy afternoon. But one couple in Long Island, N.Y., got a visit from their local police department. They had some questions about their peculiar Internet searches.

Better sit down before you read this. And move away any valuables you might throw at a wall in a fit of rage. (more…)

Sweet Land of Liberty…

2nd American Revolution is here
Media must emulate founding era in exposing usurpation by leaders

By Nat Hentoff: A nationally renowned authority on the First Amendment and the Bill of Rights and author of many books, including “The War on the Bill of Rights and the Gathering Resistance.”

The Declaration of Independence pledges Americans’ “unalienable Rights” through Governments “deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed. …

“Whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it. …”

More and more of us are determined to alter our government by denying our consent to President Barack Obama’s continuous discarding of our individual constitutional liberties, as I’ve demonstrated in recent columns.

But the most starkly lucid reasons for this looming Second American Revolution have been detailed by Randy E. Barnett, a Georgetown University professor of constitutional law and author of the book “Restoring the Lost Constitution: The Presumption of Liberty” (Princeton University Press, 2005). (more…)

"Thank you, Mr. President, for this honor and this opportunity.  I'm not sure I have the words to describe how excited I am to return to the Department of Justice, and especially to get to work again with the people of the FBI.  They are men and women who have devoted their lives to serving and protecting others, and I simply can't wait to be their colleague again."

“Thank you, Mr. President, for this honor and this opportunity. I’m not sure I have the words to describe how excited I am to return to the Department of Justice, and especially to get to work again with the people of the FBI. They are men and women who have devoted their lives to serving and protecting others, and I simply can’t wait to be their colleague again.”

President Obama recently nominated James Comey as director of the FBI. He said, praising him, “To know Jim Comey is also to know his fierce independence and his deep integrity.  Like Bob, he’s that rarity in Washington sometimes—he doesn’t care about politics, he only cares about getting the job done.  At key moments, when it’s mattered most, he joined Bob in standing up for what he believed was right.  He was prepared to give up a job he loved rather than be part of something he felt was fundamentally wrong.  As Jim has said, ‘We know that the rule of law sets this nation apart and is its foundation.'”

Well that’s awfully damned magnanimous and self-sacrificing of good ol’ Jimmy boy… except he didn’t leave!  He stayed with the Justice Department for another year, even though he was certainly and undoubtedly aware of their continued efforts in the monitoring of the personal records of millions of Americans without the legal authority to do so. And, I might add, in direct contradiction to the Constitutional rights of those being targeted. Apparently the straight-out-of-their-ass legal theories proposed by the NSA’s attorneys was enough to keep our man “Jimmy boy” at his post.  Oh!  But that’s all right. As Jim has said, “We know that the rule of law sets this nation apart and is its foundation.”

Ya think? (more…)

…thereby fulfilling his deadbeat African daddy’s dream

“Anybody out there, including low-information voters, who thinks that Obama’s trying to accomplish the opposite of what’s happening are just hopelessly irretrievable. If anybody really believes Obama’s trying to spur and grow this economy, create a growing private sector with growing private sector jobs, they’re hopeless. If anybody really thinks that Obama’s trying to strengthen the U.S. border and all this, they’re hopeless. They’re lost. We’re coming up now on five years of this.” —Rush Limbaugh

From WND:

Rush: Obama one of most successful presidents
‘He isn’t making a mess of anything’

Rush_Limbaugh

Beloved Champion of the Liberals, Rush Limbaugh

The remark from Rush Limbaugh was in response to complaints from others lamenting the state of the country, telling him, “Boy, this Obama. He’s really, really making a mess of things.”

“Wait a minute,” Limbaugh responded. “Obama isn’t ‘making a mess’ of anything. Obama may be one of the most successful presidents that we’ve ever had.”

“He’s getting everything he wants,” Limbaugh continued. “He’s transforming this country in ways that no one ever thought possible. He is succeeding at every turn, and he has a scandal pop up at just the right time every moment some big transformation’s taking place so that we’re all distracted. Everything the guy wants is happening one way or the other, sooner than later, later than sooner. Whatever. Nobody’s stopping Obama. Nobody’s stopping the Democrats. They’re getting everything they want.

“They’re getting everything they want with the Republican Party going along with most of it! Now, if your definition of a successful president or a failure as a president is somebody who is making a mess of things? Yeah, then he’s a miserable failure. But from his standpoint, Obama’s objectives, his goals? I’ll bet you Obama, in private, can’t believe how easy this has been. I’ll bet you when he and [Attorney General Eric] Holder and Valerie Jarrett and rest of them get together, they laugh and talk about how easy this has been.” (more…)

Turning the tables on the spies
Lawsuits seeks to expose NSA secrets to the public

General Council for Judicial Watch Filing SuitAttorney Larry Klayman has filed the first lawsuits in the NSA spying case and they are receiving a lot of attention.

In this exclusive interview, Klayman tells WND how the lawsuits could affect every American.

Klayman is a WND columnist, the founder of both Judicial Watch and Freedom Watch, a prosecutor in the Reagan administration Justice Department and a member of the trial team that broke up the AT&T monopoly.

He is suing President Obama, U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder, the director of the NSA, the NSA, the CEO of Verizon, the U.S. Department of Justice and Judge Roger Vinson of the U.S. Foreign Intelligence Surveillance (FISA) Court.

Klayman alleges the NSA’s massive telephone surveillance program violates the “reasonable expectation of privacy, free speech and association, right to be free of unreasonable searches and seizures and due process rights.”

The suits are class-actions on behalf of everyone in the country but also on behalf of Charles Strange, the father of a Navy SEAL who tragically died on August 6, 2011, in an attack in Afghanistan. }} Read more…

Note to Obama:

Talk about shovel ready; the hole you’ve dug for yourself is already too deep.

  • Fast-and-Furious cover-up (Americans died)
  • Benghazi cover-up (Americans died)
  • IRS targets conservatives (Affected 2012 election)
  • Freedom of the Press (FOX journalist, James Rosen, victimized)
  • NSA PRISM Program (Unconstitutional spying on Americans)

Are these the things your deadbeat African daddy dreamed about?

NSA contractor Edward Snowden braces for backlash after turning whistleblower on US data-mining operation
‘I am not afraid,’ says high-school dropout Edward Snowden, as he reveals his identity from a Hong Kong hotel room

Edward Snowden Prism Whistleblower

The man behind the largest leak of classified information in the history of the US National Security Agency (NSA) has chosen to make his identity public, despite the potential consequences for himself and his loved ones. Edward Snowden, a 29-year-old employee of defence contractor Booz Allen Hamilton and former CIA technical assistant, said he had never intended to remain anonymous. “I have no intention of hiding who I am because I know I have done nothing wrong,” he said.

Lawmakers Deny Knowing About Cell Phone, Internet Tracking

obamaliesCongressional intelligence briefing sessions have not included details about President Barack Obama’s data-gathering programs, despite claims by the president that Congress approved the measures and “every member” knew about them, Republican Rep. Aaron Schock said.

“I can assure you the phone number tracking of non-criminal, non-terrorist suspects was not discussed,” the Illinois lawmaker told Politico. “Most members have stopped going to their classified briefings because they rarely tell us anything we don’t already know in the news. It really has become a charade.” (more…)

From The Daily Caller:

New Xbox by NSA partner Microsoft will watch you 24/7

XBOX-SPYBOX

XBOX=SPYBOX

Possible privacy violations by Microsoft’s upcoming Xbox One have come under new scrutiny since it was revealed Thursday that the tech giant was a crucial partner in an expansive Internet surveillance program conducted by the National Security Agency and involving Silicon Valley’s biggest players.

One of the console’s key features is the full integration of the Kinect, a motion sensing camera that allows users to play games, scroll through menus, and generally operate the Xbox just using hand gestures. Microsoft has touted the camera as the hallmark of a new era of interactivity in gaming.

What Microsoft has not promoted, however, is the fact that you will not be able to power on the console without first enabling the Kinect, designed to detect both heartbeats and eye movement. and positioning yourself in front of it.

Disturbingly, a recently published Microsoft patent reveals the Kinect has the capability to determine exactly when users are viewing ads broadcast by the Xbox through its eye movement tracking. Consistent ad viewers would be granted rewards, according to the patent.

Perhaps the feature most worrisome to privacy advocates is the requirement that the Xbox connect to the Internet at least once every 24 hours. Many critics have asserted that Microsoft will follow the lead of other Silicon Valley companies and use their console to gather data about its users, particularly through the Kinect, and collect it through the online connection users can’t avoid.

Microsoft has promised that customers will be able to “pause” the camera’s function, but have put off questions on the precise specifics of their privacy policies.

Sure. I believe them.
