Signals collection has a long secretive
and enigmatic history. The very definition of espionage implies spying, most closely associated with foreign sources. Since
the Echelon network, the unified function of data retrieval became a given during the cold war. With the revelation of Prism,
advances in sophisticated electronic devices and software algorithms provide a major leap. The article, Is PRISM the US version of Echelon?, sums up the evolution. "With this kind of setup and ambition
to capture and evaluate private conversations (well, not so private now), makes Echelon that much more believable, and that
PRISM is a reflection of the infamous project, but focused solely on the US."
Bankwatch takes a sanguine
attitude towards Why PRISM? ECHELON has
been around since 1948 supported by US, UK, Canada, Australia. At the same time, the publication references the capacities of the original
"The ECHELON system
is fairly simple in design: position intercept stations all over the world to capture all satellite, microwave, cellular and
fiber-optic communications traffic, and then process this information through the massive computer capabilities of the NSA,
including advanced voice recognition and optical character recognition (OCR) programs, and look for code words or phrases
(known as the ECHELON Dictionary) that will prompt the computers to flag the message for recording and transcribing for future
analysis. Intelligence analysts at each of the respective listening stations maintain separate keyword lists for them to analyze
any conversation or document flagged by the system, which is then forwarded to the respective intelligence agency headquarters
that requested the intercept."
This machinery of electronic
snooping has no instinctive restraint on the subject or content, when the technocratic engineers are left to design the next
level of the "All Seeing Eye". The notion that the Prism program is shocking certainly does not conform to the even
increasing capacity of surveillance society that has already discarded the presumption of privacy.
Wall Street Journal forecasts the total integration of data because Technology Emboldened the
NSA, to capture all that is digital.
"At a 2009 conference on so-called cloud computing, an NSA official said the agency
was developing a new system by linking its various databases and using Hadoop software to analyze them, according to comments
reported by the trade publication InformationWeek.
The system would hold
"essentially every kind of data there is," said Randy Garrett, who was then director of technology for the NSA's
integrated intelligence program. "The object is to do things that were essentially impossible before."
Nonetheless, the Director of National Intelligence
issues fact sheet on PRISM in response to leaks, wants you to accept that the government is adhering to stature authority
and protecting vital national security interests. "While focusing on the letter of the law and the government's good
intentions, Clapper dodges any mention of how much information (or what kind) is actually collected with the PRISM program."
OK, only a blood brother operative of the intelligence community will
challenge the proposition that the collection of electronic information is the main function of their Skynet self-aware artificial intelligence system. The true debate is whether the
data collected is destined for use against targeted American citizens, for nefarious purposes.
to explain the methodology of PRISM: Does the NSA Really
Get Direct Access to Your Data?, and how the "so called" judicial review function of FISA Court approval is processed.
Ashkan Soltani, an independent privacy researcher and technologist, this is "a process for submitting [Section] 702 requests
and getting responses in a machine-readable form."
The 41-page PRISM
Powerpoint presentation "could be seen as a business development deck indicating all the various providers that they
currently have 'relationships with,'" he told Mashable.
is "basically a data-ingestion API," he said.
that based on what we know now, PRISM is a "streamlined way" to submit Section 702 orders to the companies for them
to review the requests, and it gives the NSA the ability to handle and process the response "in an automated fashion,"
just like an app like TripIt, which automatically parses information from your flight reservations."
According to the American Dream, the terminator assignment is being assembled. The disturbing use of a database maintained
since the 1980s by the federal government, Main Core: A List Of Millions
Of Americans That Will Be Subject To Detention During Martial Law, is the ultimate application of the individual dossiers that are generated
from signals collection.
Core contains personal and financial data of millions of U.S. citizens believed to be threats to national security. The data,
which comes from the NSA, FBI, CIA, and other sources, is collected and stored without warrants or court orders. The database's
name derives from the fact that it contains "copies of the 'main core' or essence of each item of intelligence information
on Americans produced by the FBI and the other agencies of the U.S. intelligence community."
Looking through the historic prism and behavioral pattern of the shadow government agencies,
the lack of dramatic public outrage seems to be the only consistent factor out of the denial denizens that love to
salute the flag, while willingly forfeiting their bill of right protections. This regretful conduct is seen in the example
from, "Christopher Ketchum of
Radar Magazine that first reported on the existence of Main Core. At the time, the shocking
information that he revealed did not get that much attention. That is quite a shame, because it should have sent shockwaves
across the nation…"
Now we are all supposed to empathize with the hysteria of the political careerist class over the disclosures of Edward
Snowden. The bipartisan spots of the carnivore leopards never change. When John Boehner Calls Snowden
a Traitor, he speaks for much of the establishment and equates loyalty to the
state as the very definition of nationalism.
Again, the chronicle of the military-industrial-intelligence-complex is replete with treasonous deeds against the
constitutional republic. Remember the Carnivore system implemented by the Federal Bureau of Investigation that was designed to
monitor email and electronic communications? Maybe your memory goes back to the archetype whistleblower. None other than the
iconic Daniel Ellsberg speaks out on the current scandal in the Guardian letter, Edward Snowden: saving
us from the United Stasi of America.
"In 1975, Senator Frank Church spoke of the National
Security Agency in these terms:
"I know the capacity
that is there to make tyranny total in America, and we must see to it that this agency and all agencies that possess this
technology operate within the law and under proper supervision, so that we never cross over that abyss. That is the abyss
from which there is no return."
prospect of which he warned was that America's intelligence gathering capability - which is today beyond any comparison with
what existed in his pre-digital era - "at any time could be turned around on the American people and no American would
have any privacy left."
That has now happened.
That is what Snowden has exposed, with official, secret documents. The NSA, FBI and CIA have, with the new digital technology,
surveillance powers over our own citizens that the Stasi - the secret police in the former "democratic republic"
of East Germany - could scarcely have dreamed of. Snowden reveals that the so-called intelligence community has become the
United Stasi of America."
Yes, Virginia our great founding
fathers came from not only this old dominion, but had a state of mind that fought the revolutionary war against tyranny. The
United Stasi of America is the definitive meaning of the evil empire that protects the globalist criminals that control the
political apparatus, known as the federal government.
The echelon network
of subversion and espying is but a rung on a ladder of a coercive control. The prism of deception is the false reality
your controllers use to relinquish your will to oppose the repression. The secret intelligence agencies only serve their own
bureaucratic interests as they obey their master operative superiors.
disinformation culture is the permanent realism and the snitch society is an essential requirement necessary to keep the imperium
in power. With the Americanization of domestic terrorists, Tea Party activists and the Patriotic Truth movement are in the
sights of totalitarian gangsters.
Is there any doubt that the NSA, FBI
and CIA act as if they are above the law and unaccountable? The great divide between legitimate authority and clandestine
oppression is narrow and fragile. The essential question is who is the true enemy? As the surveillance technology perfects
their reach and assimilates the application of their data assets, the military option under martial law intensifies. No one
is safe. Big Brother has become the impending Terminator.
Skynet engulfs everyone. There is no way out of the matrix as long as the globalists operate their spy network. The
system is designed to eliminate any and all dissent. Overload the data collectors by intensifying the practice of liberty
at every opportunity.
