Guest Post: How To Give The NSA The Finger

Tyler Durden's picture


Submitted by Simon Black of Sovereign Man blog,

On March 10, 1975, a group of US diplomatic and national security officials gathered at the office of the Turkish foreign minister’s office in Ankara. Henry Kissinger was among them.

The discussion turned to foreign aid and supply of parts for military equipment, at which point Kissinger (Secretary of State at the time) suggested something that violated the law.

William Macomber, the US Ambassador to Turkey, said, “That is illegal.”

Kissinger didn’t miss a beat, replying, "Before the Freedom of Information Act, I used to say at meetings, 'The illegal we do immediately; the unconstitutional takes a little longer.'"

Then, in an almost cartoon-like reaction, the room filled with laughter. You can practically see the rising cigar smoke and fatcats slapping each other on the back as they stick it to the little guy.

But that one quote, probably more than anything else, sums up the US government’s attitude: they will do whatever they want, legal or not, Constitutional or not. Most governments in the western world follow the same principle.

Just in the last few months, the US government has been found using its tax authorities to bully political opposition groups. They’ve confiscated phone records of the so-called ‘free press’. And they’ve been caught, very publicly, spying on... everyone.

It’s a sad state of affairs when NSA Whistleblower Edward Snowden has been forced to flee to the governments of China, Russia, Venezuela, and Ecuador in order to avoid rotting away in a US prison, simply for publicizing the government’s very unconstitutional crimes.

Now they’ve revoked his passport– something typically reserved exclusively for international pedophiles according to Chapter 4, Title 22 of the US Code.

It’s as if the government is happy to continue bending or breaking the law in order to destroy someone who blew the whistle on them breaking the law. Very strange indeed.

Back in the Land of the Free, attention seems to have shifted. The discussion in Congress is not “let’s shut down these programs,” but rather, “how do we crucify Snowden?”

Make no mistake, these spying programs have been around for a long time. And they’re here to stay. Which means we all have a choice to make.

Either we can (a) simply accept that the government is spying on us, or (b) we can take some very simple steps to take back some of our privacy. And freedom.

The good news is that it’s fairly simple to do this in the digital world. There are a number of tools, many of them free and open source, to help you safeguard your privacy.

Over the last two weeks, my team and I have put together a special report about digital privacy and security; it covers everything from email to text messaging to VOIP. And we’re giving it away absolutely free, no strings attached.

There’s a lot of really important information in here, and many of these steps are very, very simple to implement. You don’t need to be a techie. You just need to care about your own freedom.

You can download it here. And, please do share it with friends and family.

"The #1 responsibility for each of us is to change ourselves with hope that others will follow.  This is of greater importance than working on changing the government; that is secondary to promoting a virtuous society.  If we can achieve this, then the government will change.  The best chance for achieving peace and prosperity, for the maximum number of people world-wide, is to pursue the cause of LIBERTY.

If you find this to be a worthwhile message, spread it throughout the land."  - Ron Paul's Farewell Address

Simon stupid douche bag.....if you do these things you are just waving a red flag in front of the bull.  Don't believe me....have a load of this.....




You're nothing but a troller for clicks...."Sovereignman".  There is no sovereignty....never has...never will be.  Ask the black man who was hanged from a tree the first time he went to vote with the Declaration of Independence in his hand claiming his self-evident right of being created equal.  The Bill of Rights is nothing but a bill of privaleges that can be withdrawn at a moment's notice with no prior warning.....I mean....just why the hell are we talking about this in the first place if what I say isn't true?

You fucking liberals voted for Clinton who let Osama get away with the first bombing.  Which led to Bush taking a shocker up the ass with 9-11 which allowed that Texan retard to go full blown Big Brother so he wouldn't get pinned again with being the guy who over saw TWO 9-11 style attacks under his which we get the inevitable reaction by the sheeple in the voting in of the Socialist from Hawaii, Kenya, Malaysia....where-ever the fuck....who, while campaigning against the evils of The Retarded Texan and his Big Brother ways....GOES FULL TILT RETARD HIMSELF WITH THE NSA AND THE DRONE STRIKES AND EVERYTHING ELSE.

And you think that a little browser plug-in and some encrypted e-mail is going to safe guard you or anyone else?  The moment you go half way dark, you fucking moron, the NSA will start fingering your electronic shit like a hormone enraged teenaged boy with his first up at bat chance for high school pussy.

Re-read those articles above if you don't believe me.  And just wait till Wikileaks releases more of Snowden's revelations.  You ain't seen nothing yet as to what the NSA knows all the time.....and just what tips them off to start looking at your shit in particular.

As the first article states.....if the NSA cannot ascertain your location via such means as anonymous web surfing (ala TOR) they will automatically peg you as a non US citizen and start a file on your digital shit.


Oh...and BTW....this is from right up top on ZeroHedge.....encrypt this shit asshole.

You were born into Prison will die on Prison Planet.  Death is your only escape.

Simple....because camel jockies did it.  Nuff sed

And if it were remote controlled jumbo jets with missle launchers  and all the dead people are really alive and on some island owned by Larry Ellison and flown there himself at the request of the Government who just told Larry if you do this for us we will buy a lifetime license of Oracle database and Sun servers forever.....then so fucking what?

No one can or would do a thing about it.

I can't believe the pussified defeatist attitudes on here: "You were born into Prison will die on Prison Planet" "you just end up right back where you started".

Let me tell you something: I am not a prisoner of ANYONE. I come and go as I will. This pack of craven donut-munching thugs, pirates and looters is NOT MY GOVERNMENT. They've lost their legitimacy, and you are only their slave if you consent to be. Everyone is free to walk away, and I have already done so.

If you change yourself, as Ron Paul suggested, there is no way you "just end up right back where you started". Once you stand for liberty and autonomy, you will never be the same, nor will you ever live your life in that hole again.  These people, these Kissingers and Cheneys and the whole hordes of Khazar detritus and their Kenyan/Texan/Arkansan marionettes....they have no power over you except that which you grant them.

Make no mistake; there IS a price to pay. You have to give up some things, all of which you can easily live without, unless the addiction of comfort and the illusion of security are your idols. I've slept in my jeep behind an acacia tree in the back country of Chihuahua and been awakened in the middle of the night by Federales. I've camped on Raramuri land in the depths of Barranca del Cobre with snow all around. I've sat in the dark at Organ Pipe while the coyotes and their charges filed by in the night. I've made the run from Tecate to La Paz and Cabo many times, by jeep, bus, plane and motorcycle.  I wouldn't take anything for those memories, and no one can take them from me.

It's not over yet, not by a long shot. Ignore the boogeymen; everyone else does. The Swiss just gave them the finger. Hong Kong refused to bow. Shake off the learned helplessness, and get on with life. Life is too short to live in a box.

Yeah...and everyone knows where you're going to asshole.  Do you pay taxes.  Do you pay with fiat "legal" tender.  No?  Then it must be know....the alchemist way of conjuring money from the bowels of Federal Reserve.  Do you own a car?  Then you must pay insurance or you can't drive legally.  Do you have a license to drive said car? Then you can't drive your car legally.  Do you pay property tax if you own a home.  Of course you do....even if you have paid the house off in full.  Stop paying your property tax and the county mounties will show up at your door with a sidearm in a holster to tell you to pay up or get the fuck out.

So you walked probably pay taxes on food you eat out on your walk about in Mexi-land.  The Federales know you and what you are about.  In're free to run...sure.   But you're on the run asshole....with your back to a tree and gettting harrassed.  Yeah baby that's freedom allright.

Freedom's just another word for nothing left to lose.  In other illusion.  And you can't run free forever.  Welcome to Prison Planet asshole

But bitch away my so much easier than doing the hard thing.

But beware....even if you do the hard thing and take it all back by force....don't be surprised if you get the same ol' types of leaders you had before the revolution.

I can see that Junko-Tron knows how to spell "asshole"....and not much else.  Junko's never been to Mexico, that's for dead certain. "Pay taxes on food in Mexi-land"---Nope. All the places I eat in Mexico are part of the informal economy. They don't collect taxes and they don't pay taxes.

"The Federales know you and what you are about"----ROFL!! The Federales don't know anything and don't care. They've never even asked me my name or asked to see a passport or even my FMM card, which I generally don't bother with. Here's the totality of my conversations with Federales over the past 13 years:

Feds: You shouldn't be sleeping here. Muy peligroso. Where are you going?

Me: Copper Canyon. I don't like to drive after dark.

Feds: OK. No hay problema. Bien viaje.


Federal: Speak Spanish?

Me: Lo siento, no hablo Español.

Federal: Where you headed?

Me: Castro's Fish Camp.

Federal: Okay. Have a good day.


Two Federales in Sonora: You were speeding. We need forty-five dollars.

Me: No hablo Español, and I wasn't speeding.

Feds: OK, we'll take twenty dollars.

The Federales are a joke. The border is a joke. The visa system is a joke. I've driven from Tecate to Cabo and back without anyone, and I mean anyone in either government knowing I'd ever left the U.S.  How many of the thousands and thousands of people crossing into Mexico every day at Tijuana get checked over by the CBP?  Answer: None.  The US Border Patrol does not maintain any facility on the southbound side. You just drive in and keep going.

My tenants pay the property taxes for me. I pay taxes when I buy gasoline. It's less trouble than building my own interstate.

Stay in your dark, smelly little prison where everyone is an "asshole" as long as you like.  For myself, sunlight, sea air and a Negra Modelo.

As soon as your tenants don't pay your property taxes ( your own fucking way) then the Feds want your money (i.e. your hard work...if indeed you do any hard work) or they take your property....and if you fight back hard enough....they will shoot you dead as some crazy whacked out homeowner over the edge.'s freedom....roll on Sovereign man.....with your back up against a tree on walk about on the coast with a beer.  Yeah....smell's like teen dillusion.

Addicted to fatalism....and ignorance.

First you tell me I'm an asshole for paying taxes. Then I'm a douchebag because the tenants pay them.

"If indeed you do any hard work"--40 years of framing, roofing, cement work, truck driving and five years in a boat works.

The Feds don't want my property, especially in a foreign country. They don't know whether I have a dime.

"Teen dillusion"--I can spell delusion, and I'm 60.

Just keep on feeding your laziness by saying, It's hopeless.

US warning every other state not to allow Snowden travel.

- Spin and blame going strong
- Deflecting story and focus
- US agencies illegally spied on citizens
- US spied on many, including telecoms, Tsinghua University (Ivey league school)

Yea, it says that in the older networking books, but now, since the internet is everywhere, they have shifted from isolation to mitigation of the security risks, which is a load of crap.

False. TIN foil actually worked really well to block signals, but they got it off the market and replaced it with ALUMINUM foil, which does enhance surveillance techniques.

But, judging by the +14 / -24 ratio of " Sling and Arrows of outrageous fortune", most bloggers do not get subtlety or irony.  This is good to know, by those who (MDB, Krugman) will use it to get a rise out of others.

But the family of Zbigniew 'Trilateral Commission' Brzezinski ... is pumping Edward Snowden

Zbig's daughter Mike Brzezinski, millionaire corporate 'news journalist', interviewed Snowden to promote him ... and her brother Ian Brzezinski worked with Snowden at CIA-NSA Booz Allen consulting

Nothing 'suspicious' about all that, I guess ... that the family of the man who has advised all US Presidents for nearly 40 years, Carter thru to Obama, Brzezinski the architect of all those Asian wars that killed millions of people in Brzezinski's 'Great Game - Grand Chessboard'

They are promoting Edward Snowden ... now a globe-hopping exile even more famous than Simon Black the Sovereign Man

More than five previous NSA whistleblowers all stuck on 'conspiracy' websites despite very radical stuff ... but Snowden is a star, corporate media and the Brzezinskis jet-fuelling his fame

Could it be a limited hang-out like his friend Assange, to cover up the US-Israel nexus, like Alex Jones does (Jewish wife)? Assange who is a big friend and fan of Israel, and supports the US gov't version of 11 Sept 2001 ...

Assange's Wikileaks being very friendly to Israel ... Snowden not yet talking about the big involvement of the Israeli government and companies in the NSA ...

Brzezinksis and Snowden ... Hmmm

It is always a good idea to stay away from snakes. Brzezinski is directly behind modern times US atrocities.


Time of whistleblowing is over in this country.

Thomas Drake is a former senior executive at the NSA who was charged under the Espionage Act for the unauthorized “willful retention” of classified documents.

In 2010, Stephen Jin-Woo Kim, a specialist in nuclear proliferation who worked as a contractor for the State Department, pleaded not guilty to charges of leaking information about North Korea to Fox News.

John Kiriakou, a former CIA agent, was sentenced to two and a half years in prison for giving journalists the names of two former colleagues who interrogated detainees using harsh practices including waterboarding.

Jeffrey Sterling, a former-CIA officer, pleaded not guilty to the charge that he leaked information about a U.S. plan to sabotage Iran’s nuclear operations to Pulitzer Prize-winning New York Times journalist James Risen for his book State of War.

Shamai K. Leibowitz, a former FBI Hebrew translator and the grandson of Israeli philosopher Yeshayahu Leibowitz, pleaded guilty to leaking classified information before a judge who later said he did not know exactly what Leibowitz had disclosed — just that it was a “very, very serious offense.” Leibowitz was sentenced to 20 months in prison.

Pfc. Bradley Manning admitted to leaking 700,000 government documents to Wikileaks, including videos of air strikes in Afghanistan and Iraq in which civilians were killed.

I took my red hits yesterday wondering whether or not Snowden is really the good guy in this whole affair or not (especially fleeing to Russia or wherever he has gone onto).  Hey, I don't know!  And neither does anyone else here.

But, there is no doubt that the NSA is collecting everything they can on all of us.  It was Scott McNeally (? name) who said, years ago, "You have no privacy, get over it."

I was thinking on the way home today. The NSA's actions and the politicians' response to Snowden simply means the 4th Amendment and the Constitution are null and void. In practice, the government does not care about the Constitution at all. All the rights mentioned in the amendments (there are egregious examples for federal violation of all our most basic natural rights) and the basic right to life and liberty are now privileges provided by and at the whim of the government. That is where we are now.

"Power corrupts; Absolute Power corrupts absolutely."

Very popular and accepted as 'true' by the sheep, but... technically that's not correct.  It is not the 'power' that is the problem, but man's inability to handle power -- without his reptilian brain taking over -- that is the problem.

Otherwise, using the logic of the "power corrupts" argument, God would have to be the most corrupt entity in the universe.  Even more corrupt than Lucifer.  Per the "power corrupts" argument.

I get a laugh out of it, when sheeple just regurgitate other people's clever but false one-liners.

A common trait of sociopathology is the absolute need to conceal antisocial acts, which are, of course, completely incompatible with the personna a sociopath projects. It is fine to beat your wife and children, con old people out of their money or torture animals if that is how you get your kicks, but for that to become common knowledge is anathama. When that happens the blame goes to the traitor who outed them. Sociopaths live on secrets. You can see that the government is not saying a word about changing their obviously unconstitutional behavior, but putting a rather disproportionate amount of effort into pursuing 1 man who leaked something that was pretty much common knowledge anyway. I do wonder what else he has.

@link, Plame/Wilson
.."The shock and surprise that Snowden exposed these secrets is hard to understand when over 1.4 million Americans hold "top secret" security clearances. When that many have access to sensitive information, is it really so difficult to envision a leak?

We are now dealing with a vast intelligence-industrial complex that is largely unaccountable to its citizens. This alarming, unchecked growth of the intelligence sector and the increasingly heavy reliance on subcontractors to carry out core intelligence tasks – now estimated to account for approximately 60% of the intelligence budget – have intensified since the 9/11 attacks and what was, arguably, our regrettable over-reaction to them.

The roots of this trend go back at least as far as the Reagan era, when the political right became obsessed with limiting government and denigrating those who worked for the public sector. It began a wave of privatization – because everything was held to be more "cost-efficient" when done by the private sector – and that only deepened with the political polarization following the election of 2000. As it turns out, the promises of cheaper, more efficient services were hollow, but inertia carried the day.

Today, the intelligence sector is so immense that no one person can manage, or even comprehend, its reach. When an operation in the field goes south, who would we prefer to try and correct the damage: a government employee whose loyalty belongs to his country (despite a modest salary), or the subcontractor who wants to ensure that his much fatter paycheck keeps coming?

the illegal has to be discovered to be embarrassing like watergate was; "whatever you do don't get caught" was Nixon's motto, it backfired on him.

But dear Henry was in another class. Yes he had the ability to anticipate the opponent's next move and suggest ping pong to him or "operation Cambodia" as sideshow to turn the heat on the Ho Chi minh trail by torching it from Cambodia using their military in coup; with awesome blowback for Cambodia in Khmer rouge mayhem. Just like Taliban blowback for Pak/Afghan later on.

Watergate, ha ! ... Another intel operation, the model of a successful one

The standard American story of 'Watergate' is a hoax ... The removal of US President Nixon was a stage-managed, military-CIA coup d'état, only less bloody than the JFK removal by bullet in 1963.

The so-called 'brave Watergate reporter' Bob Woodward - still selling lies and propaganda today - is a fraud and fake, he works for the military and CIA, and America's shadow government of ruling oligarch families.

In the late 1960s Bob Woodward was in the US Navy working for Naval Intelligence under Admiral Thomas Moorer. In 1970 Admiral Moorer became head of the US Joint Chiefs of Staff - head of the whole US military - and Woodward theoretically left military intelligence to become a planted Washington Post 'reporter' as his new intelligence assignment. -

Also in 1970, Admiral Moorer started running a spy ring against the Nixon White House, with the US military complex thinking Nixon and Kissinger were getting 'soft on Communists' etc. Navy Yeoman Charles Redford stole many White House documents and so on for the joint chiefs, US Admiral Elmo Zumwalt getting some of the documents.

The spy ring - US military against the White House - was discovered at the end of 1971. But just like with the military 'business plot' planned coup in the 1930s against US President Franklin Roosevelt, exposed by US Marine General Smedley Butler ('War is a Racket'), and Roosevelt's agreement not to prosecute the American elite (including grand-pappy Bush) ... Nixon agreed to cover-up the military spy ring.

Likely fearing to end up dead like JFK, Nixon always feared to publicly denounce it for the rest of his life, tho did not deny it.

Despite Nixon's agreement to shut up and not prosecute, the military remained unhappy, along with the American elite, who wanted Nixon out  ... Nixon, for all his flaws, had come to the same conclusions as Jack Kennedy ... in other words, make some peace with the commies, and try to build a better life for Americans ... Amazingly, Nixon even tried to give everyone in the US European-style health insurance (his 'CHIP' programme - much better than Obamacare.)

So a stupid little Watergate burglary was magnified into a scandal for a coup d'état ... under military and CIA instructions, the Congress and the media, led by Washington Post fake 'brave reporters' Woodward and Bernstein - with Woodward still loyal to his old boss Admiral Moorer ... they all played a dirty game to take Nixon down, and sell the lie it was a victory 'of the people'...

A major ally was the manipulative John Dean, Nixon's lawyer in the White House, working his own angles, and betraying Nixon to the coup plotters, and made a 'media darling' from among the Nixon gang, tho Dean maybe was the worst snake among the bunch.

Ever since, Bob Woodward's fake Washington Post - John Dean version of the Watergate 'story' has dominated. ... the truth still squashed today, by the dominant media framework ... Nearly everybody believes Watergate was some kind of pro-populist 'exposé'.

Many Watergate facts were dug out by investigators Len Colodny and Robert Gettlin, book 'Silent Coup' ... more detail on a website associated with them

Those so inclined might want to check out

Basically a peer-to-peer IM/twitter/email replacement that's fully encrypted and pretty anonymous (though needs TOR to get there all the way.) This lets you pretty much bypass virtually all of the normal tracking mechanisms on the net.

Just playing around with it now, BM-2D8HSNJxAHgEcyUecT2zxLmCoeneKmHqYr if anyone cares to try me.

Dual Citizenship -- Loyal to Whom?
by Dan Eden
. ....
" Henry Kissinger
One of many Pentagon Advisors, Kissinger sits on the Pentagon's Defense Policy Board under Perle. For detailed information about Kissinger's evil past, read Seymour Hersch's book (Price of Power: Kissinger in the Nixon White House). Kissinger likely had a part in the Watergate crimes, Southeast Asia mass murders (Vietnam, Cambodia, Laos), Installing Chilean mass murdering dictator Pinochet, Operation Condor's mass killings in South America, and more recently served as Serbia's Ex-Dictator Slobodan Milosevic's Advisor. He consistently advocated going to war against Iraq. Kissinger is the Ariel Sharon of the U.S. Unfortunately, President Bush nominated Kissinger as chairman of the September 11 investigating commission. It's like picking a bank robber to investigate a fraud scandal. He later declined this job under enormous protests.

Dov Zakheim
Dov Zakheim is an ordained rabbi and reportedly holds Israeli citizenship. Zakheim attended Jew's College in London and became an ordained Orthodox Jewish Rabbi in 1973. He was adjunct professor at New York's Jewish Yeshiva University. Zakheim is close to the Israeli lobby.

Dov Zakheim is also a member of the Council on Foreign Relations and in 2000 a co-author of the Project for the New American Century's position paper, Rebuilding America's Defenses, advocating the necessity for a Pearl-Harbor-like incident to mobilize the country into war with its enemies, mostly Middle Eastern Muslim nations.

He was appointed by Bush as Pentagon Comptroller from May 4, 2001 to March 10, 2004. At that time he was unable to explain the disappearance of $1 trillion dollars. Actually, nearly three years earlier, Donald Rumsfeld announced on September 10, 2001 that an audit discovered $2.3 trillion was also missing from the Pentagon books. That story, as mentioned, was buried under 9-11's rubble. The two sums disappeared on Zakheim's watch. We can only guess where that cash went.

Despite these suspicions, on May 6, 2004, Zakheim took a lucrative position at Booz Allen Hamilton, one of the most prestigious strategy consulting firms in the world. One of its clients then was Blessed Relief, a charity said to be a front for Osama bin Laden. Booz, Allen & Hamilton then also worked closely with DARPA, the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency, which is the research arm of the Department of Defense.

Judicial Inc's bio of Dov tells us Zakheim is a dual Israeli/American citizen and has been tracking the halls of US government for 25 years, casting defense policy and influence on Presidents Reagan, Clinton, Bush Sr. and Bush Jr. Judicial Inc points out that most of Israel's armaments were gotten thanks to him. Squads of US F-16 and F-15 were classified military surplus and sold to Israel at a fraction of their value."

Common characteristic of three popular 'dissident heroes', all deeply criticising America ... BUT

They are all accused of 'limited hang-out', working to deflect attention away from US - Israel

(a) Alex Jones of Prison Planet & Infowars ... has a lot of great stuff BUT

he stays away from Zionism & Israel, Alex has a Jewish wife ... Bilderbergers to the max but no Israel ... 11 Sept 2001 stuff but NOT the Israeli involvement that day

(b) Julian Assange and Wikileaks - Good friend of Israel, checks with Israel for 'ok' before releasing Wikileaks material, the big 'Wikileaks dump' very favourable to Israel ... and Assange denounces the 'truthers' re 11 Sept 2001

(c) Now Eric Snowden, pumped by big media unlike the previous five and more NSA whistleblowers stuck on 'conspiracy' sites ... pumped by the daughter of Zbigniew Brzezinski, Trilateral Commission advisor to US Presidents for nearly 40 years, architect of the US endless Asian wars ... And Snowden, so far anyway, not speaking of the huge involvement of Israel and Israeli companies with the NSA and all the surveillance

Well, there's living on the edge and going over the edge, right? 

TPTB have deemed it safe to slander Anglos.  Esp. WAMs (white anglo males).

Monty Pyhton got it right:

p.s. You can't get songs or videos like these on German websites, as they are censored.  For their own 'security'.

You've missed option (d):

If you're an investigative reporter, if you critique the Big Bad Wolf, you end up eaten. Do note the career and where Petraeus' girlfriend spent time, and wonder how the FBI accidentally discovered the evidence. I'd not be poking me nose into that old mess, no siree. Especially if within two to three minutes of crashing at 4.30am there was an ambulance and tow truck at the scene, owned by locals. Where they there to clean up, or to frame the scene? Whichever, I salute the efficiency of their response time. And I love that boy's pet goat whose father is a Hollywood producer who was interviewed. Love, love, love it, sweet little pet.


All above my pay grade, and I shan't be saying no more about that unfortunate accident. Especially since within 24 hours the L.A. PD assured me that there was no foul play. [source] Time to drink my nice hot coco and go to bed.

How about we just get everyone to include in every email and phone call, words like bomb, allah ahkbar, Osama, my 72 virgins, etc. They couldn't read or listen to all of them!

How many times I have to explain. No one listen to your phone calls. They record it and will listen it when they get you for stop sign violation and than they will charge you for espionage based on your Google searches and talking to your grandma some thing explaining.

I think it's pretty funny that the site that wants to give you privacy advice has 8 trackers on it. BTW, ZH has 9 that I could find.
