and Google is p*wnded but no one in America seems to care, because the FBI has collaborated with private parties and American media, which has you trained to blame LulzSec , or China for Google’s PR problems .

Beyond the baseline level of bad propaganda and disseminating disinformation  (LulzSec denies that the man arrested for the hack was a member of its organization), the FBI is notorious for breaking in to peoples computers[1 in 4 hackers is an FBI informant], uses hackers to access US citizens e-mails, and kicking down the doors of American citizens, human rights advocates, and peace activists all the time [here ,here  , and everywhere]

Does the FBI control Googles page ranks?

.

FBI-America wants you to focus instead on how China treats human rights activist Ai Wei Wei, or how Chinese teenagers play around on the internet, and brought down Google.

The FBI even tells you that it is the Chinese military that is hacking Americas infrastructure, and is willing to go to war against them, even though there is evidence that the Chinese military wasn’t responsible , when in fact it was likely a couple of hairdressers.

But what they don’t tell you could have the greatest destructive influence on American society ever: the FBI has, since 1996 been in cahoots with American businesses to destroy your right to privacy.

Undoubtedly, American business is largely controlled by Republicans, and the wealthy, who are willing to sell or barter this nation into oblivion.

The organization responsible for that traitorous collusion with the FBI, and that breach of the threshhold of your home is called IntraGard, and they have been watching you and your internet for years.

The good news is that LulzSec—responsible for hacking Sony, Nintendo, and PBS, has hacked into the Atlanta chapter of InfraGard, and released 180 personal passwords . Here is their login page  in case you have one of those passwords, but be careful–by now it is likely dripping with honey from FBI bees.

InfraGard has long been in collusion with the FBI in order to subvert and destroy your 4th amendment rights against being subjected to unreasonable searches and seizures.

IntraGards method of circumventing the United States Constitution [get one free here ]is relatively simple, and sadly effective.

Any member of IntraGard can at any time, claim that your activity is suspicious, and alert the FBI. The FBI takes information that is essentially stolen from private data bases, or simply takes the word of an IntraGard agent, and their word becomes pretext to investigation.

Joseph McCarthy in his wettest cold-war-porn dream could not have thought up a better way to manipulate the spirit of the law, or circumvent due process than to have a select, pre-vetted group of willing informers to rat on, or help setup US citizens to FBI scrutiny.

These InfraGard cowards are not Minutemen , in the classic sense of United States History.

And they are not modern patriots—they are the hidden face of the looming escalation of covert war on American citizens.

They are truly xenophobic, anti-Americans worked into a froth over the loss of white privilege, and they are willing to take you out to get their version of history written.

IntraGard, Google, and Sony, et al have been hacked by true American patriots who fight against the repressive regime of FBI deception, and misappropriation of the Constitution—even if those patriots seem to be from “overseas”.

Since when did the FBI ever give a shit about human rights? They are proud of their ability to create premises for the criminal conviction of Americans, and the history of the organization is one that routinely breaches all imaginable legal boundaries in its quest to create the appearance of crime.

Guantanamo Bay, and Abu Ghraib have proven the willful blindness and incapacity of the FBI in that arena. What moral high ground is left for America to take; what high road is left when the police become the robbers.

All that is left to them is pre-emptive propaganda wars that further oppress freedom in the disguise of cvreating or upholding it. Below is a real-time example of disinformation in action.

Google the phrase “FBI violates Human Rights”, and here is what comes up in the results—FBI pre-emptive propaganda that puts the search term after FBI agenda ( screenshot above). The Chinese might be right when they say that Google is a political tool .

FBI agents are richly rewarded for their efforts too, earning up to 136,000 dollars per year, plus benefits (packages that include full health care, stipends, and extra money for joining “task forces,” like the one that operates the disinformation campaign above.)

My guess is that the highest road we can take is somewhere in resource rich Tibet , which is why America actively harbors dissenters from there, and focuses energy on blathering on about the evils of China.

The real goal of the US in talking about Chinese abuses of power is that the US can gain a foothold into Tibet’s water supply, which effectively takes water away from China.

What could be called a threat to the Chinese is a blessing to Americans who adore religions empty promises, and America began its ideological cyber war with China long before the Chinese figured out that they were under attack.

China has recently called Google a “political tool’ because American businesses jumped on the ‘blame China bandwagon’ when China refused to allow American propaganda into its country, via Google.

China is against hacking as much as we are , but the FBI relentlessly blames them instead of being accountable for or admitting its own hacking exploits.

And suddenly when Google accounts used by Americans who wage cyber-war in China are hacked, the FBI wants to try to take a moral high ground about free speech rights?

They need to work on that here.

Is it mere coincidence that uber-important ally in the fight against “terror” Pakistan sits on the edge of China? A coincidence that America has condoned massive repression there, in a country that has its finger—and its religious fanaticism—plugged into China’s backside?

We doubt it.

More likely, and more true to American form, is that we are creating a pretext for even more, and evermore “pre-emptive war,” which is Americas un-creative default solution to dysfunctional social problems of policing that have spilled over into the world arena .

When all else fails, blame China, who owns a ton of American debt —or look inward at the reason why America is in debt: it can no longer afford or justify its flawed social programming, much less tame its chief propaganda agents quest for inflated, over-blown budgets and phony trumped up justifications of “America being under attack”.

The FBI is the Praetorian Guard of a twilight America, and American citizens are in the Colosseum. A threat to American freedom, and a failing social experiment that needs correction.

But who can police the police?

Police hack computers

In Police and FBI evidence creation and set-ups, Police Personality, Profile the Police, Supreme Court complicit with police power, Uncategorized on May 31, 2011 at 9:49 pm

…and often plant evidence, malicious computer code, and other mal-bots, but it is remarkably hard to prove.

Even harder to prove once they manipulate, destroy, or outsource the evidence.

Despite years of the FBI claiming noble moral high ground

”]its secret programs of hacking, placing back doors in victim computers, and planting viruses on cell phones, America now claims the right to call other countries hacking an “act of war?”

WASHINGTON — In its first formal cyber strategy, the Pentagon has concluded that computer sabotage by another country could constitute an act of war, administration and military sources told NBC News on Tuesday, confirming a report in the Wall Street Journal.”

Most hacking done by the United States government is intent on breaking in to computers of foreign nations and dignitaries. Using CIA complexes in Langley Virginia and its surrounding regions and in sync with the NSA in Fort Meade MD, they do the majority of their cyber-crime. American spy networks also use libraries and college data bases that are often unwitting hosts of hidden CIA , and NSA use or  infiltration.

But the real dirty work is often outsourced to private companies, or done by the U.S. military from offshore locations in the Eastern Bloc countries, the Philippines, or by using front companies that provide server space in other host nations.

‘How the world works’
Rich Mogull, analyst and CEO of Phoenix-based security research firm Securosis, noted that governments and defense agencies have been spying on each other throughout history. Computers have just made it easier to do so electronically.

“This is just what countries do,” he said. “It’s the unfortunate reality of how the world works.

Our government hides its tracks fairly well, using massive networks of phony and anonymous IP addresses, and malware that writes code onto hacked hard drives, and then erases itself after their dirty work is done.

But who can stand against the overly- burdensome rights of corporations who are known to flout policy and law? American corporations have formed unholy alliances and smashed the rights of other nations for years, most recently in Colombia, where America has for years been the primary distributor of cocaine, murderer of workers, and suppressor of the truth until it became a politically untenable position.  (abused people and relatives of murdered victims sue Chiquita for 1 billion)

Perhaps the biggest threat to the rights of human beings, and individuals, who uphold individual rights for human beings, is the privatization of spying. Given what corporations have shown us in the past, the future of actual cyber-security looks glum, negotiable, and unaccountable.

Police abuse women

In Police and FBI evidence creation and set-ups, Police destroy and createevidence, Police Personality, Profile the Police, Supreme Court complicit with police power, Uncategorized on May 24, 2011 at 11:17 pm

…and usually, they get away with it, because cops  hate  “hundred pound weaklings.”  They deplore what they consider “weak,” especially if that weakness is in men.

When cops beat men up, they almost always get away with it–even if those men are in wheelchairs!

In the case of police beating women, society takes a different approach, and assumes the women who are victims of police violence are innocent, and up goes an outcry. But not always:  Lisa Wareham was assaulted

Police abuse women

by Officer Livio Beccaccio, a veteran of the Orlando, FL police department  and, as usual,

the cops report contradicted the video-taped evidence. But the cop didn’t know there was video tape when he told his initial lies in an “official report”.

She likely would have been seen as guilty,without the exonerating video-taped evidence that revealed police lies.

According to clickorlando.com,  she said “It happened so fast. I was so scared. There is no way to describe it.”

Wareham, a single mother who was out with her friends at the time of the incident, said she could not believe what happened.

“I went to sit up and I felt something in my mouth. I spit (my teeth) out. I didn’t even know what to think,” she said.

Wareham said there was a disturbance nearby and a man was shoved into her. She said as she was questioning the man as to why he bumped into her, Beccaccio led her away and hurled her to the ground.

She barely weighs one hundred pounds.

Cops lie in their reports all the time. We know that. Lying in police reports is the norm,not the exception. They teach lying  in the police academy, and the courts often uphold police lies,but with videotape, their lying abilities versus the cameras unfaltering eye are a game changer.

Notice the highlighted text below:

“Although the Supreme Court has often said that truth is an imperative to justice, (9) we now know that police officers, (10) the key investigative component in our criminal justice system, lie, even under oath. (11) i How often do the police lie? No one knows for sure, but credible reports of police lies are common. In addition to police lies captured on video and audio recordings, trial judges have become increasingly skeptical about police testimony in suppression matters. (12) Juries have found police lies using a beyond-a-reasonable-doubt standard. (13) Some judges, prosecutors, and criminal defense lawyers believe that the police often lie successfully at pretrial hearings to avoid application of the exclusionary rule. (14) Commissions have convened, studied, and documented police lies. (15) And there is circumstantial evidence of police lies, along with other police misconduct, from the work of the Innocence Project and a recent empirical study conducted by Brandon Garrett. (16)”

[article here]

Police also routinely violate and abuse women, but they are very good at covering it up; police departments generally have a no-talk rule about their own domestic disputes, and women ( and men) who live with cops are often intimidated into silence by their gun toting mates.

But video tapes can make the difference between another routine report written by a cop being taken as truth, or revealed as the lies they are.

This video-tape  might get the officer suspended, reprimanded, or otherwise, but I doubt it. Police departments around the country are slow, or lax to discipline officers who abuse the public trust–there are just too many others in “the public” who condone police brutality.

Worse, the police have the full complicity of female police officers in the ranks to do their dirty work for them: according to clickorlando.com, OPD Lt. Barbara Jones sent an email to …on Wednesday confirming that the incident “is being reviewed and under official investigation.”

Two things in that statement  smell like pork, and the beginnings of a cover up:

1) the cops use female officers to deal with police assaults on women to diffuse the public perception of police as a  ‘male dominated’;this is the key to police disinformation campaigns in regards to the women that police abuse.

2) the phrase “official investigation,” which always amounts to the police strategically adding up the factors that damn them, and comparing them with factors which could make their lies plausible, to see  how they should  run the final story.

But it is a grand thing when you can catch cops in action, or investigate a whole departments corruption, like San Francisco’s PD, whose police misconduct, fraud, lies, and abuses were also caught on tape

We’ve heard the official story before, and it’s always B.S., sprinkled with heavy levels of disinformation and lies.

The problem is two-fold:

a) police profiles themselves are lies, and often are merely excuses to over-extend police powers. ( think seat belt laws, Terry stops, and the implication that you are guilty of something if you refuse a police search of your car)

b) the public is largely unaware of the police authority test*: if a cop stops you, you must comply to its orders. They are seeking compliance first, sorting  issues of right from wrong later.

Police authority has gone wild, and the public at large is unaware of these small abuses, until it is your brother, sister, or other family or friend that has suffered.

The small abuse of the police authority test has led to the larger abuses, and now it is time to arm yourself against the police- buy a video camera, and use it to record police home intrusions,brutality, and day to day events before you lose the right to do it–and double and triple back-up your recordings, because police have long histories of destroying video evidence.

Remember: they work for us–or at least,they used to– not the other way around, and today, they actively work against us–against the U.S. in us.

Document it: if you don’t flex your rights,you will lose them. So know your rights about recording police behavior.

United States Supreme Court endorses men being raped.

US Supreme Court {sans Justice Kagan}

….but not double or triple stacked.

And: American Police are Rapists who thrive on rape culture ideology, a flawed model of social control that can work for, or against them. Flawed because from its inception and implementation by some of the justices that sit on the court today, it set up a judicial system that allowed the accused to be publicly tried, while the accusers remain anonymous, like in the eastern bloc countries, and repressive South American regimes. Rape and Security theater.

I am not the only one to notice how our country uses sex charges, false rape statistics, or politically motivated rape charges, either.

Naomi Wolf, writing for Reuters, says that rape culture ideology ” means that policy outcomes can be advanced nowadays, in a surveillance society, by exploiting or manipulating sex-crime charges, whether real or inflated.”

I said as much just the other day. Oh, wait: I said that 5 days before Ms. Wolf did.

Police and social mechanisms that should protect us from police misconduct encourage, condone, cause, and cover-up American men being put into conditions that cause violence and rape: prisons. America relies on sex-crimes charges to stifle dissent, and men must be triple stacked in shitty, hot, overcrowded and unconstitutional conditions before the court does anything about it.

Many of those men are in prison because of a “bad habit,” or an “addiction,” rather than actual, real, person to person violent crime.  Men encounter and learn violence in prison, and the police mechanism routinely uses prison rape as a tool to control men. –while ironically, our entire culture, and its press slathers over what “might be” happening in other countries, and collective outcry weeps for the human rights of women in countries we do not, or cannot control.

American prisons are rape and violence factories, but also, many of the men in prison today are there because police and court mechanisms have willingly and historically been complicit in prison rapes and violence.

However, they are silent in the very least about the creation of a drug addicted society. Not one single drug scare that was ever initiated by police powers has ever worked to keep citizens off of drugs. American police, and their military counterparts are also the worlds biggest drug dealers. History tells us that.

Rather than creating American manufacturing, or other jobs, influential Americans have only encouraged the growth of police and military powers—powers that cause rape and kills people overseas.

The police in America are certainly the foremost advocates of placing dissenting American males into harm’s way—and even further away from those men relaying such messages to foreigners. Our police structure only wants the mythology and marketing tools of “baseball, hot dogs, apple pie, and mom’s lemonade” message to get out to foreigners. [Original commercial here]

Shockingly, today, the United States Supreme Court issued a rare decision that upholds prisoner’s rights, and ordered the State of California to end the overcrowding conditions in its prisons. In doing so, the courts order is an even rarer ruling that upholds human rights—here, in America.

Despite the fact that one of the most prominent sociopaths in America, Antonin Scalia— sits on the Supreme Court today, the high court once again backs cuts in Calif. prison population.[ more on Antonin Scalia here:]

While the USA routinely violates the human rights of foreign people, and the human rights of Americans alike, it is rare that we acknowledge the human rights abuses in America, much less enforce existing laws against such abuses. Through collusion of the police and the press to cover-up such human rights abuses here, and the courts routine failures to act against such abuse that has led to perhaps the worst human rights conditions in America since slavery.

Fortunately, we still have the foreign press to report human rights violations in America, and foreign media is not on the U.S. payroll—yet. So we have to look to foreign newspapers and foreign broadcasts in order to ascertain the truth about our own country.

While America today is delicately dancing around the fact that it manipulates and censors the internet, ( and here ) China Daily reports that “The United States reports the world’s highest incidence of violent crimes, and its people’s lives, properties and personal security are not duly protected.”

On its face this statement is true, however, the Chinese press, though refreshing in its breadth and comprehension of American human rights abuses against American citizens, fails to acknowledge the root cause of this purported violent crime: we live in a country where our police and our media are in collusion to initiate violent contact with men, and regularly remove fathers from households in order to begin the indoctrination of the children in the households.

America is relatively a single mother society, and fathers are not allowed to be fathers in lower income brackets, whereas upper income brackets rely on a sliding scale of what makes a “good man,” versus a “bad man,” and cops are always the “good men”.

Police make initial contact with children, and then begin indoctrination of children as who “good guys” or “bad guys,” are–because American police thinking is black and white, with no shades of grey—American police suffer from a great dearth of creative thinkers–and regardless of the crimes perpetrated by police and state mechanisms, the courts uphold cops almost by rote.

American society depends upon men being locked up on trumped charges, so that the police and their allies can get to the kids, and create good little killing and birthing machines that willingly go off to foreign wars.  If they don’t–well, we have a place called prison for the misfits.

Police propaganda campaigns like the out dated D.A.R.E. program cause our children to become aware of drugs and drug abuse much earlier than any child needs to hear about such social programs, while countries like China–who historically battled with the west to keep the western police powers and their opium out of its borders–China focuses on and teaching children the basics: the three R’s.

Worse, every time our police or military get involved in a “foreign war,” the police power imports more of the exact drugs that it claims to “protect” its citizens from. Every single US policy against drugs has increased the drug flow to America. Most US drug policies have increased the US presence as dealers in international drug markets.

It would be safe to say that every where there is drugs, the US “intervenes” and drugs are produced in larger quantities; it would be safe to say that America depends upon drugs for cash flow.

Since the U.S. has been in Afghanistan, the supply of heroin into the U.S. has increased from 7% to 60%. The U.S. policy of “supply side” strategies to reduce drugs is a miserable failure. And China is historically aware of western manipulation of facts about drugs, and drug statistics as well.

US policy it is designed to be so, because it justifies inflated police budgets here at home, and creates the illusion that there is a “criminal class” of our citizens, rather than socially marginalized people who have been brutalized into submission or otherwise set-up for failure by police power. Drugs and other government sponsored addictive substances and materials are the fault of the addict, rather than the fault of a social system that relies upon using drugs as a matter of leveraging foreign governments–like China.

Yet far worse than the police themselves are those who cloister themselves away and concoct schemes of social control that are often negotiated, arbitrary by their very nature, blind eyed when it comes to policing the police, and short sighted when it comes to fair or equal justice when it comes to weighing police misconduct against dissent and dissenters that challenge such conduct.

Our Supreme Court supremely and routinely upholds only the interests of that police power, and its subscribers in middle and upper classes. The deck is stacked with paid off Bush family dynasty, paycheck earning, citizens’ rights hating, business and connection loving conservatives like Samuel Alito, John Roberts, and Antonin Scalia-some of the most repressive jurists to ever sit the bench. They are the upholders of all things religious and fanatical; white men who believe that women are primarily birth canals who should stay at home.

Then there are the second string players, justices who are the future liberty oppressors, or in the very least, a silenced liberal impulse, and relics from a brief era of social justice in the 1960’s. Many of them are also Reagan era or Bush dynasty appointees who wear the face of what appear to be “minority” justices, but who are at heart angry and frustrated modern Sambo’s fearfully ready, willing, and abl

e to overlook the majority of issues that affect the poor and the disenfranchised of our America, while extending their hand to the rest of the world—as long as that emergent world is one that has a dollar bill in its hand..

These justices are willing to re-tool a fascist leaning country, and uphold police shenanigans, as long as their cherished “represented” and favored minority wins ( minority as defined by a standard that is over 230 years

old, and outdated for modern representation).

Weakened Justices like iron Ruth Bader-Ginsburg, ballsy Steven Breyer, sometimes bold, but often mediocre Anthony Kennedy; and the new faces of the police state, Sonya Sotomayor, and Elena Kagan are remarkably weak and silent in the face of some of Americas worst repression ever.

They are too busy marveling at the architectures of the modern police state they have helped create by buying into fear campaigns that made a mess with human rights issues here at home, and they upheld the torture of non-Americans; the false election of Bush.

Then there’s Clarence Thomas. What can one say about a black man that hates black men? American language doesn’t have a word for that, but he has been part of some of the most black-people-hating decisions to ever come before the court, and perhaps the only justice who should wear a white robe–if he didn’t seem to hate ALL men.

So, if there is a threat to China, it isn’t liberalizing its society: it could well be U.S. citizens reg

aining the rights we have lost for the last thirty years, or men who have been

systematically miscategorized as “violent offenders,” many of whom are victims themselves. But have no fear China; American is open for your business: American civil rights are in a shambles, while police and military power are a growing threat—but not to Chinese or other foreigners.

Our power structure relies primarily on locking dissenters away from the public discourse, just like we say you do, and our police are very busy setting citizens up and labeling them criminals of one kind or another, at the expense of the real story of America leaking out.

Meanwhile the real crooks are those who wear uniforms, the black robes, the one guy in the white robe, and the

people who pay their salaries. They just took away one of the most cherished of human rights, which was our right to be protected in our homes against police intrusions without a warrant.

Historically that is something that “repressive countries” do to their citizens. they are always more than willing to steer you into the arms of their cronies, rather than into the discourse of the real America—the long term money.

Most importantly, they are for sale, too, despite this recent breath of justice leaking out, and you can get in on it once you recognize who they are, and what they sell.

[ Note: the author does not condone the sterile and distancing use of the word “foreigners,” as applies to new arrivals in America; however, recognizes its utility to American society which relies on racist, sexist, and other-ist language to create in-groups and out-groups; and as a tool to cause new citizen arrivals a modicum of fear, and the forced recognition of a heirarchical template that puts people from other nations at the bottom of any social ladder]

American police censor, manipulate Americas internet

..and worse, they may be planting what could be called “evidence” on your computer as well. They have the means, the motive,and the technology.

Yesterday, as i wrote, my internet connection, and the act of “thinking and writing” was hijacked, and replaced; rerouted, and redirected, while I was in the middle of the writing

Sadly, the IP trail points to the possibility that the United States government had something to do with it.

It is by now a well known fact that as the United States of America censors the internet. As the U.S. decries abuses of power and instances of internet censorship or close control by cloistered middle-eastern governments like Iran, and inserts itself into every argument that Google has with the Chinese, we have allowed the same thing to happen here.

Equally challenging, if not outright dangerous, is that we have allowed our Nation’s military and spy powers to listen in on our phone conversations, and our internet connections.

The government, in making or  manufacturing a case against a citizen, they can now listen to that citizen discuss the case with a lawyer, and by listening in, the government can pre-empt the citizen’s case strategy, circumventing justice by strategizing against the right of unreasonable search and seizure of one’s protected conversation.

Or, they can monitor your internet connection, and based solely on your website visits, develop an FBI profile of you that you would never know about until it was too late. That type of profiling has already taken place,  and it is against the citizen’s right of due process of the law.

“Instead of recording only what a particular suspect is doing, agents conducting investigations appear to be assembling the activities of thousands of Internet users at a time into massive databases, according to current and former officials. That database can subsequently be queried for names, e-mail addresses or keywords.”

“What they’re doing is even worse than Carnivore,” said Kevin Bankston, a staff attorney at the Electronic Frontier Foundation Carnivore was another program that they used to spy on citizens even before 9/11.  (For the paranoid out there, you can get a glimpse of exactly what they might be sending in and out of your computer using a tool called a “packet-sniffer”. Here is a free one  )

But the worst of all might be happening right now, and you won’t know about it until you get the “knock at your door.”

Police rarely spy on their own kind, and when they do it is almost accidental, and kind of comical.  But they routinely spy on us, and the foot soldier beat cops plant evidence all the time.{ here, herehere, here,  and endlessly, everywhere you look)

While citizens of other nations like Turkey take a stand against such internet censorship,  and China debates how to deal with the issue of western propaganda ( UFO’s, and God,endless global war,  and magic–all that crap that is ruining the minds of American children)and how to stop it from leaking into the minds of its children, our government engages in cyber-warfare, and that warfare has spilled over to its own citizens.

When the White House web page was hacked,our government blamed China, when in fact it was likely just a bunch of Chinese kids – really smart kids–but the attack was not tied to Chinas government. It was a prank.

The CIA—who has been warning us about how evil the Chinese are for over 50 years– ran with it, and accused the Chinese of engineering attacks. A lie of course (and who can beat the CIA at that?). But it was enough of a lie that the average U.S. citizen had one more reason to shake a fist at the east, rather than looking inward at its governments lies.

So, when our government, who has only and indisputably taken a path to eradicate the rights that we hold dear, rights like freedom of speech and press ( which relate directly to internet use), freedom against warrantless searches, and freedom to merely “pursue happiness,” we can only infer darker objectives than the protection of those freedoms, and infer it twice if, when on the internet, we are hijacked for reading alternative news, or material that represents another perspective other than the growing neo-fascist  American mindset.

The United States had long accused communist nations, and Islamic nations, and socialist nations of depriving citizens of freedoms, as well as creating phony legal cases against its citizens in order to smash dissent; but when our nation stepped onto the slippery slope of spying against our own, and repression, all bets were off.

Our nation is now responsible for imprisoning and torturing American citizens, killing citizens of other nations without due process, and war crimes against citizens of other nations.

How often do we hear some entitled idiot say “I don’t care if they spy on my phone or my internets, I ain’t doin’ nothin’ wrong.”?

What about every time your phone or connection is hijacked by some pop-up, or virus? Did it ever occur to you, as you look at Al Jazeera for the latest news in Iraq, or Afghanistan , that your pop-up might actually be leaving a cyber-trail to places you did not want to go?

Did it occur to you that just because you read Al Jazeera, that some pimple faced, X-box playing IT-trained soldier could be sitting in the Phillipines, or Iraq and actually leading you through some experiment ordered by his superiors? Because your ‘profile’—after all , terrorists read Al Jazeera—fits the type; that he or she might be reading along with you?

What if he/she decides to throw you a pop-up, or a re-direct, so they can follow your behavior, and add to your profile? Another mindless cog in a world-wide wheel has the power to reroute your actual browser requests, and replace them with wheel-cog grease.

And what if they throw you something worse, which sits in a folder in your system until you have been determined to be either a “good guy“, or a “bad guy“? Then, what happens when you give that computer to grandma?

Do you gamble online? Every time your redirected offshore, it could be to a U.S. government data base, and it could be leaving traces of things behind; it could even be opening a “back door” and mining your personal photos, or mindlessly routing other traffic through you.

How about porn? Sure, it’s legal, and quite free—but did you ever notice what the pop-us and redirects leave behind? Probably not, but they did make a mess, and that mess can be a useful tool to gain your compliance somewhere in the future. And the data left behind, especially if it made it into your “profile,” might say nothing about you at all, but to them? Well, you might one day NOT run for president…

The fact that you don’t care, or allow them to spy on your connection means you also allow them to do that to others as well. In order for them to spy on an individual, they assemble hundreds of thousands of cyber-profiles gleaned from routers and switches that connect with hundreds of thousands of other peoples connections.

Your mother; your grandmother; dear old dad, and the grand kids. All the data goes into a database, and then that base is routinely referenced and cross referenced for keywords and e-mail addresses. Referenced FOREVER. Worse, every couple of years, some pimple faced IT kid in some branch of our military or police structure gets to look at it.

How do your tax returns look? Remember that charitable donation to your Uncle Sal—the one he bought the boat with? How will it compare to others in 10 years? It is all of the power of the IRS, but flagged, or red flagged, and amplified by infinity. How about your kid’s baby pictures?

And what if at some point those smart Chinese kid hackers grow up and gain your data? Personally, I could trust them with it: it’s the Russian Mob, the Nigerian 419’er, and the FBI that I don’t—they have all shown themselves more than willing to break fundamental laws to gain their purposes.  Only the latter has consistently shown a disdain for Civil Rights, and the law itself[  here, and here, here– well you get the idea.] and more than once is federal police power unaccountable for its law breaking scandals [ here, here, here ], but worst of all: you have nothing to say about it.

Why? because the internet is forever. Privacy? Not for long with you around.

It is the social equivalent of you believing that because you keep your curtains open, anyone who prefers privacy must have something to hide; and the social equivalent of you believing that you have a right to peak into someone else’s curtains.

You don’t, it’s against the law, and your belief might one day backfire, because you never know who else is on those same routers, and those same switches —and you definitely don’t know ‘who knows who’, until you wake up with an enemy you never knew you had—right here at home, in the good ol’ USA.

So what does that make you, with your belief in rights to look into someone else’s curtains? And what will stop them from planting evidence on your computer? Your continued silence about our nation’s censorship and other abuses is your guarantee? What’s your mothers, or fathers, or kids, or neighbors privacy guarantee?

It certainly isn’t you. You are the broken link in the security chain.
