Passwords to Surveillance

Finally, some members of the U.S. Congress are waking up to what’s been going on right under their noses. Members of Congress are initiating oversight proceedings—why so late?—and the Senate Intelligence Committee is planning an investigation of the National Security Agency (NSA)[1] regarding the collection of individuals’ personal phone data.

Doesn’t that sound like something that would have taken place in the former Soviet Union or definitely in Nazi Germany, that is, if old Adolph would have had current technology? Instead of making Germany’s Jewish citizens wear their traditional six-pointed-star—actually interlocking triangles depicting “as above, so below”—Hitler would have targeted their every conversation, just like what’s going on now in the United States of America. Who would believe that really is going on in the USA?

Congress is to blame, in this writer’s opinion, because it has gone along with all the changes to the 2001 Patriot Act and certainly is not bridling all those Presidential Executive Orders (PEOs) citizens don’t know about—or care about—until they take effect. Please study all Mr. Obama’s PEOs.

Warning: Take a calming sedative before reading. Mr. Obama has issued over 150 PEOs since his very first PEO (#13489) dealing with Presidential Records secrecy the day after he was first inaugurated in 2009 to his most recent PEO Authorizing the Implementation of Certain Sanctions… issued June 3, 2013. In essence, what PEOs do is legally establish one-man-authoritarian-rule! A dictatorship, if and when a sitting president wants to invoke his ‘special’ privileges that he gave himself by issuing PEOs, while voters, the Congress, and the U.S. Supreme Court can’t do a damn thing about it. Did you know that?

If that’s the case, so why do we need Congress? Or even the U.S. Supreme Court? We certainly could save a lot of taxpayers’ money—and get closer to a balanced budget—by not having to pay those not-so-cheap-salaries plus pensions. Or, is that the ultimate plan for future change?

In view of how the Affordable Care Act (ObamaCare) was ramrodded down Congress’s collective throats, and how we now learn that it is not affordable at all, with healthcare insurance premiums for a family of five probably costing between $20,000 to $25,000 a year, shouldn’t everyone who breathes air be demanding change that Mr. Obama promised, e.g., like no more ‘sneaky Pete’ surprises from Congress, SCOTUS, or the Executive branch, i.e., the president. U.S. citizens deserve better, I think. How about you?

But wait! You haven’t heard how bad it gets. Thanks to WND’s columnist Andrea Shea King’s enlightening article “DHS Flags Tweets About ‘Militia’ But Not ‘Jihad’” we learn about what this writer terms “Passwords to Surveillance”[2]—certain words in Internet postings that are guaranteed to put the writer on the Department of Homeland Security’s surveillance list(s) as possible homeland terrorists.

According to the listing in King’s article, which I encourage you to read, this is how those selected ‘passwords’ or phrases break out:

Domestic Security includes 54 with such mundane words as recovery and drill. So, if you are writing an email telling your friend about your recovery from the drill bit accident you suffered, you have used two passwords to surveillance, i.e., recovery and drill.
Hazmat & Nuclear includes 35 words or phrases with such pedestrian words as cloud and burn.

Again, if you send an email to your sister telling her about your fantastic day spent at the beach being a cloudless day and that you suffered a nasty sun burn, you are now under DHS’s surveillance.

Health Concern & H1N1 has 38 words or phrases that will put everyone on DHS’s surveillance, in this writer’s opinion, because that list includes such words as pork, virus, flu, food poisoning, etc. Just imagine sharing this with your BFF: Boy, did I get a bad case of food poisoning from eating that pork barbecue sandwich we had for lunch today. At first I thought I was coming down with a virus or the flu until I went to the emergency room. Can you imagine being put on a watch list for those two sentences using 4 passwords to surveillance?

Even though we need terrorist-proof security, we also need common sense, something that seems to be lacking with the current administration and Congress, I think. If we are supposed to be protected from foreign terrorists, most of whom have been identified as Al-Qaeda associated, wouldn’t you think there would be some foreign language, Arabic-like, Farsi, or even Israeli words on that DHS “passwords to surveillance” lists? It’s not too hard to figure out what’s going on, but what do we do about it?
