Truth is in favor of you and me; for the truth of our enemies whom we have been serving here in the U.S.A. for over 400 years (whom we did not know to be our enemies by nature) is the truth that the Black Man must have knowledge of to be able to keep from falling into the deceiving traps that are being laid by our enemies to catch us in their way which is opposed to the way of righteous of whom we are members. ~ The Honorable Elijah Muhammad

The US government wants to pass new spying laws behind your back

In December 2012, the US Senate re-upped the NSA’s vast surveillance powers over the holidays when no one was paying attention.

Meanwhile, the FBI’s dangerous new proposal that would force tech companies like Google and Facebook to insert backdoors into all their internet email and chat programs would categorically make cybersecurity worse. Security experts almost universally agree: creating a vulnerability that law enforcement agencies can exploit will be found by foreign governments and criminals, making it that much easier for, say, China to break into our communications as well. It’s happened before, and will happen again, no matter how much kumbaya Obama is trying to foster this week in Beijing.

Some politicians and intel hawks are pushing for even more radical powers to sneak by while you’re not watching. In a little noticed story in October, the Washington Post reported about how some former government officials want to give private companies “hacking-back” powers – that is, they should be able to hack into the systems of anyone they think is hacking them. This insane idea is so reckless that even its biggest supporters admitted to the Post that it would likely ensnare innocent people, but that hasn’t stopped them from continually pushing the idea in cybersecurity circles.  PressTV

Watch:

America's Surveillance State

Press TV Doc

We live in the United States of Surveillance--with cameras increasingly positioned on street corners and with much more invisible spying online and on the phone. Anyone who is paying attention knows that privacy could be out the window. All of this is not happening by accident -well funded powerful agencies and companies are engaged in the business of keeping tabs on what we do, what we say, and what we think.
To many in the world, today, the face of America also has A BIG NOSE for sniffing and sifting mountains of data—phone calls, emails and texts. And with many mouths silenced by paranoia to keep what they decide is secret, secret. America has become a Surveillance-Industrial State where everyone’s business has become its business, and where one huge US intelligence Agency has been given the sanction and unlimited amounts of money to spy on the whole world.
Mass Surveillance is the focus of this new 6 part investigative documentary series examining who is watching whom and why.
