Obama Announces New Plan To End NSA Bulk Data Collection - Live Webcast

Tyler Durden's picture




 

The last time Obama announced he would "wind down" the NSA the NSA... got bigger!? Which is why we don't have any hopes whatsoever that this latest appearance by the teleprompted populist in chief, in which he is expected to announce a proposal to end NSA bulk data collection (yeah right), will lead to any deescalation of the centrally-planned, totalitarian state which has all 20th century dictators spinning in their CIA-facilitated graves. We do expect him to issue more warnings, and explain the "costs" to Putin once again, just in case he missed them the last time, before he annexed Crimea...

This is kabooki theater by the civilian government.

NSA is a state within a state. They do not listen to civilian leaders. They actually do the reverse, they keep civilians in check.

More double-talk from Obama. All he needs to do is to tell the NSA to stop the unlawful monitoring of every man, woman and child on the planet. But of course we know this will never happen. Just more lip-service from the firstblackgayhomophobekenyan POTUS.

Bonus points for the "Aliens" reference. Dr. Joseph Farrell suggested that the data collection capacity far exceeds the actual global data production by a rather large magnitude, i.e. some 100 years worth of electronic info. He posits that this collection is a safeguard against a cataclysm or Tower of Babel moment. I suppose that means a safeguard against terrestrial or non-local aggressors, where all that info can be restored (assuming there isn't a great smoking hole where the US used to be).

I was predicting last week that they'll completely de-fund the NSA and dismantle the organization ... just so they can take the entire thing off-budget as a black-op.

The NSA probably is already lobbying for this. Probably, really hard. Obama has no choice whatever, he needs the NSA, they have all the control, but they don't want any more shit from the cyber hippies. And they want no more shit from Snowden either.

When it goes down everyone will cheer, but on that day any hoped freedom from unjust search will have finally died forever.

People here think Snowden is a thief because he took something without permission.

Yup those ingrained behavioral controls are operating just fine.

I think the real reason why Snowden is dismissed is that if what he released was taken at face value, the facade falls down. It is no longer the Dems, Reps, etc. It is a concentrated effort by the government to gain a window into every aspect of your life in an attempt to control it.

If you admit that, you cannot go back to your old Cog Dis way of living where it is the guy, the party, etc.

That is what makes people disbelieve what he released.

Russ Tice gets a pass because nobody is talking about him, eventhough he talked about the same thing, and earlier.

Bullshit, Snowden did more fucking damage to this fucking President and Crony Government, then the GOP, Tea Party, the talking heads in radio, and sites like this one, combined x10!!!

The fact you think these motherfucka's are efficient, intelligent, and logistically coordinated enough to pull off a Snowden double op, this big, shows me you've never seen this bitch from the inside! Government on all level and it's employees are the most politically stagnant, slow moving, inefficient, wasteful, clueless, pieces of shit know to man!

Who in government would do something that fucking risky????? FOR WHAT? And more importantly, on who's orders?? Gov employees exist for their own benefit, period, they don't fucking risk pensions, bonuses, raises, advancement in title, retirement, free healthcare, perks, cars, etc etc with operations like fucking Snowden!! Are you serious??

Don't be too hard on people suspect of Eddie Snowden.  We live in an up is down and down is up world now.  Assuming everyone is lying is a very prudent approach to current events these days.  We're to the point where throwing the baby out with the bath water makes the most sense.

Having said all of that I think it's possible Snowden is the real deal.  The damage he inflicted on the MIC could never be seen as justified collateral in a larger operation.  However until we hear what he thinks of 9/11 we cannot be sure.

lies...if you hate your NSA you will be forced to keep your NSA.

Just like when he said he wasn't going to sign the NDAA bill, but then went ahead and signed it anyway. 

this is where my 180 degree rule of libiots, regressives, Marxists, and general scumbag traitors comes into good use.  Take whatever the former says and believe the exact 180 degree opposite of it, because that will be closer to the actual truth than anything that comes outta those fuckers lying mouths. 

They're always lying and they always mean the exact opposite of what they say.
