Trusting the government costs you your privacy, your freedom, and even your stability

I’m from the Government and I’m Here to Spy on You

People who use black tape to cover the cameras on their home and office computers, iPads, tablets and cell phones,  can no longer be written off as ‘paranoids’.


The big portals showing the masses what the government is really up to all came last April, and until Obama’s gone from the White House, civilian life will never be the same.

It was last April when a judge in Texas denied a request by the Federal Bureau of Investigation for what he described as a warrant to remotely “hack a computer suspected of criminal use”, raising questions about the legal requirement for the government to use computer hacking techniques in investigations. (Wall Street Journal, April 23, 2013).

“By “surreptitiously installing software”—a technique typically associated with computer hackers—investigators are able to infiltrate computers and gather extensive information, according to a document in the case.

“The judge’s order said the data the FBI could obtain includes “search terms that the user entered into any Internet search engine, and records of user-typed Web addresses.

“The government also is seeking email contents, documents and chat-messaging logs on the computer, as well as to take photographs for 30 days using the computer’s built-in camera, the document states.” (emphasis CFP’s).

So Big Brother Government does have the ability to watch you right on your handy computer’s built-in camera.

It was also back in April, when news hit that the National Security Agency (NSA) was data mining cell phone calls of all citizenry.
Only days ago,  it was revealed that NSA is collecting online address books and ‘buddy lists’ from Yahoo, Hot Mail, Facebook, Gmail and others—at the rate of 500,000 a day.

There is no doubt that the US government spies on its citizens in every digital manner the technology of the day provides.  Their ultimate goal is control of those who dare to dissent the destructive policies of President Barack Obama.

Trusting the government costs you your privacy, your freedom, and even your stability.

As of October 1st, 2013, because of the United States federal government partial shutdown, the We the People petitioning system, has been shut down.

We the People is a section of the whitehouse.gov website, launched September 22, 2011, for petitioning the current administration’s policy experts.  Petitions that meet a certain threshold of signatures will be reviewed by officials in the Administration and an official response will be issued.” (Wikipedia).  “On August 23, 2012, the White House Director of Digital Strategy Macon Phillips released the source code for the platform.  The source code is available on GitHub, and lists both public domain status as a work of the U.S. federal government and licensing under the GPL v2.”

Signing onto a petition at any government website is the equivalent of walking straight into the lion’s den.

We the People petitioning system is a convenient way for Big Brother Government to keep abreast of what the citizenry is up to.

The most apt description to fit whitehouse.gov’s We the People was coined in a statement by the great President Ronald Reagan: “The nine most terrifying words in the English language are: ‘I’m from the government and I’m here to help.’”
