In Time for the Reform Debate, New Documents Shed Light on the Government’s Surveillance of Americans

Ashley Gorski

The ACLU on Friday released more than a dozen new documents concerning the government’s warrantless surveillance of millions of Americans.

The government is not going to reform, just more spying everywhere. And as Julian Assange of Wikileaks stated on his exclusive interview with Democracy Now, April 10, 2017 on the Vault 7 documents, the government can push information using viruses, trojans, etc. onto phones, computers, etc. to plant information that can implicate someone falsely in a crime. Whoa, maybe Rockwell was right all along when he, and Michael Jackson recorded, "Somebody's Watching Me."

Reading this article probably trips data collection activities under Section 702. Incidentally;-) , that stinks and should be illegal for The Alphabets to do under the 4th Amendment. Reading about and discussing U.S. foreign policy articles and its actions, which could be planted on the Internet, trips data collection activities under 702 ( Are you listening Glenn and Julian, et al ). Incidentally;-), that stinks, is potentially entrapment and a lot worse, and seems illegal for The Alphabets to do under the 4th Amendment.
None of these released documents contains information most concerned citizens didn't assume was already being done by The Police & Security State. It does serve to remind everyone that there is an incidental;-) ( actually more serious ) price to pay for not minding your own business. And, of course, nothing the government does with our tax money, to our friends and fellow travelers, to those who don't " get with the program " is really out of the legal boundaries, anymore. Because we all need to be free to pursue happiness and such other bullshit, that the PTB and The Deep State think isn't subversive somehow, and to be good citizens in the " greatest and one indispensable country " in the world. Hardee Har Har, Hardee Har Har...Har Har to you, too, Uncle Sam.

As long as a majority of Murkins value faux security over privacy, those of us who understand and are concerned about the emergence of a neofeudal nation (that is surveillance state's ultimate goal) must continue to push back on the surveillance state.

Evidently Mr. Trump who is very concerned about his own privacy and that of high ranking individuals in his administration concerning their overseas doings...

...sees the need for the surveillance state as it refers to the little people. The irony is that a corrupt president who refuses to comply with conflict of interest legislation and long standing tradition (in a democracy) as well, is unconcerned with our privacy.
