6/14/13: “Edward Snowden…When Truth Becomes Treason” – Real Jew News:
- BABJune 15, 2013 @ 4:09 pmThousands of companies have been handing over your personal data to the NSA ~ link ~ Stirling:
It isn’t just Internet and phone companies that are giving your personal information to the U.S. government.
According to an astounding report by Bloomberg, “four people familiar with the process” say that “makers of hardware and software, banks, Internet security providers, satellite telecommunications companies” and a whole host of other sources are handing over your personal data to federal agencies.
The truth is that there is so much more to this NSA snooping scandal than the American people know so far.
When U.S. Representative Loretta Sanchez said, what Edward Snowden had revealed was “just the tip of the iceberg,” she wasn’t kidding. The U.S. government is trying to collect as much information about everyone on the planet as it possibly can.
This incredibly powerful intelligence machine is not going to go away just because a few activists get upset about it.
The United States government spends more than 80 billion dollars a year on intelligence programs.
Those that have spent their careers constructing this monolithic intelligence apparatus are going to defend it to the bitter end, as will the corporate partners in the private sector that rake in enormous profits thanks to big fat government contracts.
I totally believe that. It began in little ways with “corporate America” long before the Internet. I remember Circuit City in the early 1990’s wanting our phone numbers just to shop there, not with a credit card, but just to checkout/pay them. I remember being shocked at their nosey-ness & since I had an unlisted phone number, I was like, No way, & wrote off Circuit City as a place to shop. They eventually went out of business, too.
