  • NSA Expands Citizenry Rape
    - NSA is now after your passwords: http://news.cnet.com/8301-13578_3-57595529-38/feds-tell-web-firms-to-turn-over-user-account-passwords/ This means NSA could potentially masquerade as anyone, access or manipulate your financial resources, etc. Make a note of how your representative voted on curtailing NSA's activities, activities which directly violate the U.S. Constitution, and other privacy laws. In Maryland: Steny Hoyer - 5th Dutch Ruppersberger - 2nd Chris Van Hollen - 8th voted not to curtail NSA, make sure to respond to them with your vote in the next election. The rest of Maryland's representatives who voted (4) were to curtail the NSA. Source: http://clerk.house.gov/evs/2013/roll412.xml

    removes "whistleblower" pledge that read: - -“Often the best source of information about waste, fraud, and abuse in government is an existing government employee committed to public integrity and willing to speak out. Such acts of courage and patriotism, which can sometimes save lives and often save taxpayer dollars, should be encouraged rather than stifled. We need to empower federal employees as watchdogs of wrongdoing and partners in performance. Barack Obama will strengthen whistleblower laws to protect federal workers who expose waste, fraud, and abuse of authority in government. Obama will ensure that federal agencies expedite the process for reviewing whistleblower claims and whistleblowers have full access to courts and due process.” - -Source:http://www.inquisitr.com/871858/whistleblower-protections-disappear-from-obama-site/

  • Conspiracy theories aside, Corp America should not be doing NSA work
    Honest Broker
    In the intel world, Govt employees have strict guidelines and restrictions on surveillance especially when US citizens are involved. My group built surveillance technology, but we could only use simulated signals or Govt owned systems until the final field tests which the scrutiny was tremendous. As for the contractors, they would come to us with all kinds of surveillance break throughs for sale. What bothered me was they did not have the resources we did, so they would use actual commercial systems for most developmental testing. It begs the question, who did they intercept during development? What did they do with the information? Was there any corporate espionage going on? I personally do not like profit motivated Corp America doing surveillance development or analysis, but apparently the politicians feel otherwise because they keep allocating money but only if it gets contracted out. Snowden probably raised awareness of Govt monitoring conspiracy, but in actuality the problem more lies within the politicians outsourcing the work to those with an inherent conflict of interest.
