Americans have traded away their privacy for safety
We have enabled a deep state to become powerful enough to control a powerful president. We have placed so much data and so much power in the hands of unelected, unaccountable, opaque spies that they can use it as they see fit — even to the point of committing federal felonies. Now some have boasted that they can manipulate and thus control the president of the United States by selectively revealing and concealing what they know about anyone, including the president himself.
Phi Beta Iota: The headline is in error and this is probably not the author's fault. America is no safer for having a corrupt secret intelligence community that processes less than 1% of what it collects, produces no “intelligence” of real value, has prevented no terrorist incidents; is lying about the Russians and Trump and the Russians and the election; and is in grotesque violation of the US Constitution on all fronts.We have not traded privacy for anything. We have lost it all. There are roughly 500 traitors across the US Government, at leasdt 30 each at NSA, CIA, and the FBI. Donald Trump does not have the advisors he needs to cut the head off this snake quick time. For example, NSA has no legislative charter. It could be closed down tomorrow by Executive Order. CIA's money can be cut off. The FBI can be cleansed and then unleashed. Trump's advisors — half traitors (e.g Judas Preibus) and half ignorance (they do not know what they do not know) are not serving him well in the fight of his life. It merits comment that the out of control secret intelligence community is joined in treason by a fake news media that lies to the public about everything, and a new threat, the social media mandarins, led by Eric Schmidt, in a RICO-like criminal network that censors and manipulates information not to their liking, to include, recently, the extra-judicial deprivation of Alex Jones' Infowars of $3.5 million in ad revenue after Google surrogate AdRoll declared Inforwars to be a purveyor of “fake news” (with no evidence, no due process) and stopped all payments — this reminds us of how PayPal deprived Wikileaks of its revenue, without due process and without any legal grounds what-so-ever. Google also de-listed (digitally assassinated) Natural News, restoring it hours later after a massive public outcry. The public is now aware that we need a blockchain alternative to Google, Twitter, Facebook, YouTube, Reddit, Wikipedia, and all other digital “services” that are in fact fascist extra-legal entities — the Google Gestapo.
Should #GoogleGestapo join #unrig?
Robert Steele: The Soft Coup Collapses – Blackmail Revealed – What Next? CIA was bluffing, produced no evidence – Russians did not “hack” the election. Is this the beginning of the end of the Deep State in the USA? Can Trump clean house & wage peace?
