Was Snowden used to pacify US?
Snowden may have either wittingly or unwittingly deceived us by reporting that NSA only records and stores the metadata, but they record and store everything!
Many are reluctant about posting on social media, but don’t realize that all of their phone conversations are being recorded and stored indefinitely. Continue reading “Corbett & Bermas: Snowden Misled US – NSA stores all phone *conversations*, not just metadata”

Are all telephone calls recorded and accessible to the US government?
Sat 4 May 2013 08.22 EDT
..Over the past couple days, cable news tabloid shows such as CNN’s Out Front with Erin Burnett have been excitingly focused on the possible involvement in the Boston Marathon attack of Katherine Russell, the 24-year-old American widow of the deceased suspect, Tamerlan Tsarnaev. As part of their relentless stream of leaks uncritically disseminated by our Adversarial Press Corps, anonymous government officials are claiming that they are now focused on telephone calls between Russell and Tsarnaev that took place both before and after the attack to determine if she had prior knowledge of the plot or participated in any way.
On Wednesday night, Burnett interviewed Tim Clemente, a former FBI counterterrorism agent, about whether the FBI would be able to discover the contents of past telephone conversations between the two. He quite clearly insisted that they could:
BURNETT: Tim, is there any way, obviously, there is a voice mail they can try to get the phone companies to give that up at this point. It’s not a voice mail. It’s just a conversation. There’s no way they actually can find out what happened, right, unless she tells them?
CLEMENTE: “No, there is a way. We certainly have ways in national security investigations to find out exactly what was said in that conversation. It’s not necessarily something that the FBI is going to want to present in court, but it may help lead the investigation and/or lead to questioning of her. We certainly can find that out.
BURNETT: “So they can actually get that? People are saying, look, that is incredible.
CLEMENTE: “No, welcome to America. All of that stuff is being captured as we speak whether we know it or like it or not.”
“All of that stuff” – meaning every telephone conversation Americans have with one another on US soil, with or without a search warrant – “is being captured as we speak”.
On Thursday night, Clemente again appeared on CNN, this time with host Carol Costello, and she asked him about those remarks. He reiterated what he said the night before but added expressly that “all digital communications in the past” are recorded and stored:
Let’s repeat that last part: “no digital communication is secure”, by which he means not that any communication is susceptible to government interception as it happens (although that is true), but far beyond that: all digital communications – meaning telephone calls, emails, online chats and the like – are automatically recorded and stored and accessible to the government after the fact. To describe that is to define what a ubiquitous, limitless Surveillance State is.
ALERT: Fake video released just two days ago that looks so real it has 2 million views already. The give-away is the robot not creating any dust, and too many live rounds are going off right next to these men. Another tip-off is the name Bosstown Dynamics, which I didn’t catch, and is a take off from:
Boston Dynamics is an American engineering and robotics design company founded in 1992 as a spin-off from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.
I posted this after seeing the short, lower def. clip on Facebook that seemed real before watching this entire longer, HD version.
It’s still worth watching, because the deep state certainly has something like these in the works, if not ready already. How would one defend oneself against these?
Edward Snowden Quoted
(transcribed by Jeff Fenske)
2:22:00 “The system, the world, the future gets worse every day that we don’t do something about it. Every day we stay silent about all the injustices we see the world gets worse, things get worse. And yeah, it’s risky; yeah, it’s uncomfortable, but that’s why we do it, because if we don’t no one else will. All of those years I was sitting hoping for someone else to come forward and no one did. …
You are never further than one decision away from making a difference. It doesn’t matter if it’s a big difference, if it’s a small difference, because you don’t have to save the world by yourself. In fact, you can’t. All you have to do is lay down one brick. All you have to do is make things a little bit better in a small way so other people can lay their brick on top of that, or beside — and *together*, step by step, day by day, year by year we build the foundation of something better. … I don’t care if you’re the biggest doomsday prepper with cans full of beans. If the world ends it’s going to affect you. We make things better; we become safe together. …
If you’re trying to eliminate all risks from your life, what you’re actually doing is eliminating all possibility from your life. You’re trying to collapse the universe of outcomes such that what you lost is freedom. You’ve lost the ability to act because you’re afraid. And that’s what got us into this mess.”

L.A.’s rail system will be first in the U.S. to use scanners that detect explosives
Los Angeles County’s rail system will be the first in the United States to deploy body scanners that can detect suicide vests and other improvised explosives, transportation officials said Tuesday.
Later this year, the Metropolitan Transportation Authority will deploy several portable scanners that can be moved to any of the system’s 93 subway and light-rail stations. The devices will be used in response to terrorism threats, or to scan large crowds at a station near a protest or a sporting event, officials said.
The scanners resemble a small trunk on wheels. They can be pointed toward an escalator or a station entrance, and can scan people from 30 feet away without requiring people to line up or slow down. …
The scanners use radio waves to identify objects, including guns and nonmetallic explosives, concealed under a jacket or in a pocket. …
“One thing we have to be sensitive to is the 4th Amendment, unreasonable search and seizure,” Wiggins said. “We will make it very, very clear that individuals are entering an area where they’re subject to search.”
Riders who “want to opt out, can opt out,” Wiggins said, but could be barred from entering the station if they refuse to be screened. He added: “That means not taking transit that day.”
The Personal Data Google Has on You Is Shocking and Dwarfs That of Facebook, Here’s How to Stop It

Google knows where you’ve been
Google stores your location (if you have location tracking turned on) every time you turn on your phone. You can see a timeline of where you’ve been from the very first day you started using Google on your phone.

Here is every place I have been in the last 12 months in Ireland. You can see the time of day that I was in the location and how long it took me to get to that location from my previous one.
Google knows everything you’ve ever searched – and deleted
Google stores search history across all your devices. That can mean that, even if you delete your search history and phone history on one device, it may still have data saved from other devices.
