OBAMA ORDERS FED WORKERS: SPY ON EACH OTHER
From Armstrong Economics:
Europe still does whatever the USA orders it to do. Like Rome, all roads lead to Washington. It does not matter that the USA is spying on European politicians, it is also in a position to blackmail them so they do as the USA demands. There is no better example of this than Austria forcing the plane of the Bolivian President to land because they thought Snowden was on board.
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.
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.

The days of reasonable economic forecasting are over. Today, an economic forecast is more like the analysis of a criminal mind than the evaluation of economic data. The dominating role of government overpowers markets intentionally. In the short-term that will continue. Reactions to Federal Reserve minutes referencing continuation, alteration or cessation of quantitative easing cause stock markets to move by over 100 points. Other markets are affected by government interventions, just not so noticeably. Long term, markets will overpower government. Welfare states can no longer maintain their level of spending, services and welfare. However, they dare not stop lest civil unrest and violence break out. The bind they are in has no solution. Governments around the world are doing whatever is necessary to survive. Lying, stealing and outright confiscation will begin in order to support their bankruptcies. Cyprus was a minor precursor of what is coming.
