The data being collected by the NSA, FBI and DHS is being converted to technological weapons against the American public. This surveillance will undoubtedly be used as criminal evidence for trial.
The inception of the NSA-GCHQ ECHELON system with the immensely profitable Surveillance Industrial Complex has become a technologically advanced interception system, as journalist Nicky Hager predicted in 1996.
ECHELON was designed to extract massive amounts of data indiscriminately. A covert system of interception facilities was built to spy on the world’s satellites, international telecommunication, and radio communications. ECHELON was the link between all these and provided the US government with high-tech surveillance capabilities for its time.
Whether blanket spying or eavesdropping, the intelligence community could sit back covertly and mine for data without detection.
According to James Bamford
the Pentagon is attempting to expand its worldwide communications network, known as the Global Information Grid, to handle yottabytes (10 to the 24th bytes) of data. (A yottabyte is a septillion bytes–so large that no one has yet coined a term for the next higher magnitude.) . . . It needs that capacity because, according to a recent report by Cisco, global Internet traffic will quadruple from 2010 to 2015 . . . reaching 966 exabytes per year. (A million exabytes equal a yottabyte.) … Thus, the NSA’s need for a 1-million-square-foot data storehouse. Should the agency ever fill the Utah center with a yottabyte of information, it would be equal to about 500 quintillion (500,000,000,000,000,000,000) pages of text.
William Binney, former NSA official and whistleblower, stated that, “Actually, I think the surveillance has increased. In fact, I would suggest that they’ve assembled on the order of 20 trillion transactions about U.S. citizens with other U.S. citizens.”
The TSA , it has been revealed, has total control over “jurisdiction over all forms of mass transit.”
Samuel Huntington spoke of the coming technological surveillance state where he states that the Western global Elite have responded to the excess of democracy with technological enhancements.
While austerity threatens to further enslave the masses with debt they do not owe and the Elite are investing in the corporatism that is bubbling to the surface, a police state is manifesting under their illegitimate rule.
The attitude of government is to spy on its citizens without accountability and restraint.
The US government has been hard at work shredding the US Constitution.
The UK’s parliament has been passing “anti-social” restraints to force their people into submission.
France, Spain and other EU countries are under direct rule of technocratic bankers who were not elected, but placed into power.
Corporations like Microsoft, Apple, Google and Facebook have given their information over to the DHS and NSA while claiming they are not.
Local law enforcement has been working with cellular phone corporations to survey Americans without cause or warrant.
These are the calling cards of a police state even Orwell could not have imagined.
And we are experiencing this reality now . . . with no end in sight.
