'Stellar Wind' Whistleblower Reveals More About NSA Domestic Spying

Former top NSA mathematician and code breaker, William Binney, has gone on record to publicly reveal the scope of a top-secret surveillance program called Stellar Wind which led to his resignation in 2001. It is a program that has directly targeted everyday Americans following 9/11.

Binney has endured harassment by his own government, as many other whistleblowers have when trying to reveal illegal activities and corruption. Binney has stated that the scope of the data collection conducted by the NSA forms a map that can "show your entire life over time." 

In a new video interview with Russia Today posted below, Binney goes on to provide more details in light of the Petraeus/Allen scandal, and discusses Narus devices which can be accessed by agencies like the FBI that can in Binney's words, "collect on the order over one hundred billion one thousand character e-mails a day. One device." 

The problem, to this point, has been how to centralize and sift through the massive amount of information collected. The U.S. government, however, has already stated its desire to seek new ways to manage this "big data", ensuring that widespread data collection can continue.

The NSA is set to complete its $2 billion fortress of domestic surveillance by September 2013 that indicates one step toward big data management. It can store 100 years worth of electronic information. But this data collection initiative is not only within the walls of the NSA; it is taking place across the board in our largest federal agencies and departments such as the National Institutes of Health, Department of Defense, National Science Foundation, the Department of Energy, the U.S. Geological survey, and DARPA. 


The Obama administration through the Office of Science and Technology Policy has announced a $200 million investment in taking this information "from data to decisions." This scientific and national defense endeavor is all-encompassing, as it seeks data input and sharing between government and private companies, such as Amazon, as well as public universities.

When Binney spoke to Wired in an article by James Bamford, he explained that the NSA could have focused only on international communications;
Instead it chose to put the wiretapping rooms at key junction points throughout the country—large, windowless buildings known as switches—thus gaining access to not just international communications but also to most of the domestic traffic flowing through the US. The network of intercept stations goes far beyond the single room in an AT&T building in San Francisco exposed by a whistle-blower in 2006. 'I think there’s 10 to 20 of them,' Binney says. 'That’s not just San Francisco; they have them in the middle of the country and also on the East Coast.' (Source)
The new NSA facility at Bluffdale, Utah, will have the capability to spy "on every single form of communication, ranging from the entirety of private emails, cell phone calls, Google searches and other Internet activity, to data on travel, parking receipts, purchases at bookstores, and anything and everything they can get their hands on."

However, rather than feel paranoid or try to hide from the runaway train of surveillance and the increasing number of lists we're all on, Binney offers a piece of sage advice that we all would do well to adopt:
RT: Were you on the target list? 
WB: Oh, sure! I believe I’ve been on it for quite a few years. So I keep telling them everything I think of them in my e-mail. So that when they want to read it they’ll understand what I think of them.

An electronic dosier on every American. What they do, feel, buy, think, vote, read, to have their computer come up with lists of people that may know what's happening to their country.

Do Google searches of "J. Edgar" and "transvestite". And "Cointelpro, Ruby Ridge, Waco, 9-11" Give your surveillers something interesting to read.

I heard that Russia and China are approaching American shores as we speak in a flotilla of 100,000 sonar avoiding nucyular submarines. I hope NSA doesn't intercept this post as I fear it will ruin the surprise and they may lose a few.
Oh what have I done! Putin will never let me emigrate now, darn it!

Oh well at least since they are all trained on Washington and the deep underground bunkers so I should be safe right here.

Technological surveillance is one thing, but spiritual surveillance is far worse. The ability to perceive a targeted individual's thoughts, emotions, and impulses if will, is a much more intrusive and dangerous capability. Invasion of one's soul life for the purposes of control, manipulation, and containment is, I can assure you, a real threat to human liberty. The occult brotherhoods behind exoteric politics have always possessed the faculties to to accomplish such deeds, and one should be wary of this menace as much as any other.

I have been feeding them dis-info ever since I realized the retro immunity granted the telecoms was to protect the govt officials approving its illegal use on us. They know very little "correct" info about myself if it comes from my communication, never buy online if you want it to be private.

Basically, they need us POOR in order to gain the control they desire! Inflation, the hidden tax, will continue to gut us, on top of regular taxes.
We must BE POOR, WITH NO FINANCIAL POWER, then we will be FORCED TO SUBMIT TO THERE DESIRES! To eat, breathe,and drink, THERE POISONOUS PRODUCT ECT. BUT WE MUST BE POOR FOR THAT TO HAPPEN! So handle your money WISELY!! & LIVE WISELY!

The funny thing is that this has nothing to do about Marxism. This is the Right Wing extremists, Reagan and Bush created this, if you don't believe me, well, you are doomed.
So long from Norway!
