Somebody’s Watching Me

LOL. This song by Rockwell is dedicated to our friends at Big Brother.gov.

Three times I have tried to embed the video with lyrics to Rockwell’s Somebody’s Watching Me from YouTube. I copied the code from three separate videos, thinking the first one was corrupted. The second one I assumed was a fluke. After the third video code failed, I am considering it enemy action.


Court and Senator Say NSA Has Violated Constitution

Historically, the NSA prided itself on its internal code of conduct. Something happened to this once moral agency. It crossed a line from following the law to violating it.

So says Senator Ron Wyden, talking about domestic intelligence collection by the NSA and the findings of the court (FISC) charged with overseeing NSA’s collection program:

“… on at least one occasion the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court held that some collection carried out pursuant to section 702 minimization procedures used by the government was unreasonable under the Fourth Amendment.”

We don’t know the details of the classified order, but it’s clear that it’s a very important aspect of the domestic spying apparatus that even the court overseeing the program found it straying into illegal territory, says Business Insider.

Here’s the relevant text of the amendment:

“The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.”

Business Insider has written an article on this topic, including other sources of information about intelligence collection by the agency. You may read it by clicking the link below.


DEA Agent Blows Whistle on CIA

“The more informed we are, the freer we are.” –Joe Madison

It is the job of the public to look for patterns of behavior that appear over and over again, demonstrating our government is not acting in the public’s best interest.

Government to Control What Seeds You Can Plant in EU

A shocking new proposal coming out of the EU sends chills up my spine.

A new law proposed by the European Commission would make it illegal to “grow, reproduce or trade” any vegetable seeds that have not been “tested, approved and accepted” by a new EU bureaucracy named the “EU Plant Variety Agency.”

It’s called the Plant Reproductive Material Law, and it attempts to put the government in charge of virtually all plants and seeds. Home gardeners who grow their own plants from non-regulated seeds would be considered criminals under this law.
