Marcy Wheeler, aka emptywheel, wants you to know that the NSA WANTS you to know that "ON 702, NSA WANTS TO ASSURE YOU YOU’RE NOT A TARGET TARGET TARGET TARGET TARGET TARGET TARGET TARGET TARGET TARGET TARGET TARGET TARGET TARGET TARGET TARGET TARGET TARGET TARGET"

What journalists should know about the deep state Alphabetross domestic spying on Americans by the NSA/CIA/DEA/ODNI/FBI/SOD and FiveEyes-Israel Alliance, according to Marcy Wheeler (and I quote):

“ON 702, NSA WANTS TO ASSURE YOU YOU’RE NOT A TARGET TARGET TARGET TARGET TARGET TARGET TARGET TARGET TARGET TARGET TARGET TARGET TARGET TARGET TARGET TARGET TARGET TARGET TARGET”


NSA just released a touchy-feely Q&A, complete with a touchy-feely image of the NSA, explaining “the Impact of Section 702 on the Typical American.”
I shall now shred it.
First note that this document deals with 702? It should be dealing with Title VII, because the entire thing gets reauthorized by 702 reauthorization. That means Sections 704 and 705(b), which are used to target Americans, will be reauthorized. And they have had egregious problems in recent years (even if the problems only affect some subset of around 300 Americans). Sure, Paul Manafort and Carter Page are not your “typical” Americans, but abuses against them would be problematic for reasons that could affect Americans (not least that they could fuck up the Mueller probe if FISA disclosure for defendants weren’t so broken).
The piece starts by talking about how the IC uses 702 to “hunt” for information on “adversaries,” which it suggests include terrorists and hackers.

The U.S. Intelligence Community relies on Section 702 of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act in the constant hunt for information about foreign adversaries determined to harm the nation or our allies. The National Security Agency (NSA), for example, uses this law to target terrorists and thwart their plans. In a time of increasing cyber threats, Section 702 also aids the Intelligence Community’s cybersecurity efforts.

Somehow, it neglects to mention the foreign government certificate — which can target people who aren’t “adversaries” at all, but instead foreign muckety mucks we want to know about — or the counterproliferation certificate — which can target businesses of all kinds that deal in dual use technologies. Not to mention the SysAdmins that it might target for all these purposes.
The piece then lays out in two paragraphs and six questions (I include just one below) the basic principles that 702 can only “target” foreigners overseas.

Under Section 702, the government cannot target a U.S. person anywhere in the world, or any person located in the United States.
Under Section 702, NSA can target foreigners reasonably believed to be located outside the United States only if it has a basis to believe it will acquire certain types of foreign intelligence information that have been authorized for collection.
[snip]
Q: Can I, as an American, be the target of Section 702 surveillance?
A: No. As an American citizen, you cannot be the target of surveillance under Section 702. Even if you were not an American, you could not be targeted under Section 702 if you were located in the United States.

Effectively, this passage might as well say, “target target target target target target target target target target
target target target target target target target target target,” which is how many times (19) the word is used in the touchy-feely piece. The word “incidental” appears just once, where it entertains what happens if one of “Mary’s” foreign relatives were in a terrorist organization….[follow this link to read more!]

How to gain legal standing to sue the NSA: "the Tor Exception" and Marcy Wheeler aka emptywheel tell you how.

SOoooO…shit.
The cows are coming home to roost, finally. And, they are taking huge craps on journalism AGAIN.
It really suX to be “that one guy” or gal in Marcy Wheeler’s case, who is “way the [email protected] ahead of ‘the game,’ because then, you get totally gang stalked for decades as the NSA/FBI/CIA/FiveEyes/Israel backdoor butt buddies cornhole all of your communications, and send hidden subverter’s of law and justice into your every relationships in what is called colloquially “organized gang stalking.”

UPDATE: Marcy Wheeler turned into an FBI informant, as soon as she became targeted by the deep state, and even wrote about it.

Or, as some have noted, “being accosted, assaulted, delayed, redirected, or robbed outright by the ‘Are You Jewish’ guys.”
All of these subversions are what the Association of Threat Assessment Professionals calls “the colliding parallel investigation, ”as they discuss in their crisis narrative formation, aka “advising law enforcement ” how to discuss this NSA-Israel spying on citizens, and the accompanying psychological operations waged covertly on yargeted persons across America who have no idea what hit them; and, that are causing mass homicides across America.
Fifth column indeed- and talk about burying the lede! Pierre Omidyar has shown his fur, and the Intercept has been invaded by the Sterns Gang!
Ask James Risen about that-he’d probably disagree, but at least organized stalking is coming out of the woodwork finally, and then, use my search feature to find posts about how Tor is subverted and “captured” and “entrapped” directly, and always, BY THE NSA, which technically, gives every single Tor user ‘legal standing’ to sue for section 702 spying on American’s abuses, because the Tor user can ‘prove’ that they are spied on PERSONALLY by the NSA Data Theft Pipeline Bandits.
Yup-privacy rape is a real thing, and emptywheel covers it like John Ashcroft on the statue of Lady Justice, but in a “good touch” way.

no plates USPS2
Are you there SOD-it’s me, the “Whisperette” [sounds of the Constitution gagged and bound like a kidnapping victime in the back of a postal van, then: “GrrgggHhh!” Then: radio crackle. “Did someone mention Tor??! Standing??”

Ruthie: That WHORE! Who said Tor!? Riva: Ruthie, I think he’s just kidding-he said “Your so pretty in that clever hat, which rhymes with vintage Sterns Gang Gat.”

Unlike all of those vagina hat wearing morons that have taken over the Democratic Party everywhere for the sake of weeping vahjayjay’s, Marcy Wheeler focuses on “civil liberties for EVERYONE” instead of those who have a mysterious sacred Isis Temple where they get together and talk about “safe spaces and the sense of belonging when being used like “a Liberty Torch,” and then, march about the worlld in an endless killing spree, to the tune of the bankster’s as hey light the Constitution on fire, and then look around and cry “But there’s nothing to put the fire out!” havng burned down the Barn.
I myself prefer the analogy of being a Maxi-Pad for freedom, because I feel less cramped, and more free,  but each to their own.
Here’s Marcy on the “Tor Exception,”which helps every single American to begin to wage a case where they can prove beyond any reasonable doubt that they have been personally targeted, and spied on:

In Re: The NSA's Great Sim Heist, a corporate hack, and the XKEYSCORE program.

The avid ROGS reader will note that not all hacks are created equal, and while national security is indeed an important and necessary function of our current state of law and justice-not all hacking targets are the same.
That, indeed, politics are behind every single hack. Also- that gang stalking is real, and not necessarily delusional, most of the time; and that all “electronic harassment and directed energy” claims are usually related to eavesdropping and other redirection, and communications systems n one way or another-that a lot of “cross talk” can be inferred from these dialogues.
And, I would like that one special reader to take note of this: while you might think your salary depends upon the will of international banking cartels, many American citizens whose rights and liberties that have been compromised by these schemes are taking notice of how “un-American” some of these inner circle politics are-and how the great American dream for some is itself a target, because politicized racial, sectarian, ethnocentric influences work at times with each other, but also, against each other.
So-while the NSA hack that targeted certain companies cell phone SIM cards once seemed like a good idea I ask you, the special reader if that is the case now-that such a company might in fact and practice deserve MORE protection now? Because if security is the goal, then I would imagine that all the sectarian and appalling partisanship within the “deep state” that we saw ‘then’ might take on new meaning ‘NOW.’
Like I said once upon a time-it seems that everything I write about today, get’s into the news shortly thereafter. And in the case of Senator Al Franken’s recent debacle, which I touched on here months before it happened, or the new fate of Russell Simmon’s, who I touched on here about a month ago is any indicator, you might want to get a manila envelope ready. My imaginary friends  would appreciate it. And, I certainly am not complaining either, because like I said repeatedly-you come in through the front door, or go [email protected] yourself.
AND-if you haven’t heard yet- this is the NSA’s Google:

Source map blah blah
Notice that one beam in the eye of the Panopticon that goes to Washington State, and that other one in Texas. That seems like it will be relevant later, hmmm.

XKEYSCORE

NSA’s Google for the World’s Private Communications

The reach and potency of XKEYSCORE as a surveillance instrument is astonishing. The Guardian report noted that NSA itself refers to the program as its “widest reaching” system. In February of this year, The Intercept reported that NSA and GCHQ hacked into the internal network of Gemalto, the world’s largest provider of cell phone SIM cards, in order to steal millions of encryption keys used to protect the privacy of cell phone communication. XKEYSCORE played a vital role in the spies’ hacking by providing government hackers access to the email accounts of Gemalto employees.
Numerous key NSA partners, including Canada, New Zealand and the U.K., have access to the mass surveillance databases of XKEYSCORE. In March, the New Zealand Herald, in partnership with The Intercept, revealed that the New Zealand government used XKEYSCORE to spy on candidates for the position of World Trade Organization director general and also members of the Solomon Islands government.
These newly published documents demonstrate that collected communications not only include emails, chats and web-browsing traffic, but also pictures, documents, voice calls, webcam photos, web searches, advertising analytics traffic, social media traffic, botnet traffic, logged keystrokes, computer network exploitation (CNE) targeting, intercepted username and password pairs, file uploads to online services, Skype sessions and more.

Bulk collection and population surveillance

XKEYSCORE allows for incredibly broad surveillance of people based on perceived patterns of suspicious behavior. It is possible, for instance, to query the system to show the activities of people based on their location, nationality and websites visited. For instance, one slide displays the search “germansinpakistn,” showing an analyst querying XKEYSCORE for all individuals in Pakistan visiting specific German language message boards.
As sites like Twitter and Facebook become increasingly significant in the world’s day-to-day communications (a Pew study shows that 71 percent of online adults in the U.S. use Facebook), they become a critical source of surveillance data. Traffic from popular social media sites is described as “a great starting point” for tracking individuals, according to an XKEYSCORE presentation titled “Tracking Targets on Online Social Networks.”

Speech Crimes, journalism, and Targeted Individuals: my connection to Sammy "the Bull" Gravano, who got out of prison Monday.

Webs of associations, connections, presidents and naming names- even some torture. All of that is in a single quote from “Six Degrees of Separation: by John Guare, voicing his observation from the mouth of his character Ouisa Kitteridge:

I read somewhere that everybody on this planet is separated by only six other people. Six degrees of separation between us and everyone else on this planet. The President of the United States, a gondolier in Venice, just fill in the names. I find it extremely comforting that we’re so close. I also find it like Chinese water torture, that we’re so close because you have to find the right six people to make the right connection…
-Ouisa Kitteridge in “Six Degrees of Separation”

In my formative years, I watched the movie”Six Degrees of Separation” starring Will Smith, and based on the book by  Guare, and have found that, in these privacy and due process raping times, our “associations” are under attack; that the NSA, DHS, FBI, Fusion Centers, and local police have literally stolen our choices of primary “rights of assembly; and association,” by data-warehousing our entire webs of relationships in the huge data bases that I chronicle here at ROGS. And they have done it for over two decades. This is what is meant by “soft force eugenics” in the online gang stalking community, and it works like this.
So, what is a “disruption” campaign and how does it affect targeted individuals?
Six Degrees of Separation had, for me, a personal connection, though our “six degrees” is no longer six: it is TWO DEGREES of separation, as the Five Eyes Nations and the NSA-FiveEyes-Israel data theft pipeline have stolen all of our information, and use it to monitor, manipulate, and “disrupt” our relationships, as we are now all connected by a single mouse click at the NSA, or GCHQ, or any of the hundreds and thousands of other “good guys monitoring human relationships” centers across the west. As Edward Snowden said- this is not merely about spying: ‘this is about intellectual property theft,’ and then guilt by association-or vindication by it.
Six Degrees also notably highlights the late era feminism of white females attempting to ’empathize’ with black men, which they simply cannot, being as they are on one hand, the un-empathetic Bernaysian mouthpieces of organized globalism, and on the other, the mistresses of the police state itself, which Guare note’s thus in an exchange between the protagonist Paul, and the white Ouisa:

Ouisa Kittredge: There is so much you don’t know. You are so smart and so stupid.
Paul: I’ll be treated with care if you take me to the police. If they don’t know you’re special, they kill you.
Ouisa Kittredge: Oh, I don’t think they kill you.
Paul: Mrs. Louisa Kittredge, I am black.
Ouisa Kittredge: I will deliver you to them with kindness and affection.

 

I have never been awed by status or power, nor intimidated by it, which for some, poses a problem. And, those “some, I have described elsewhere on this blog as “cowards,” and especially as RATS, nibbling away at the bottom most planks of Constitutional Democracy, and nibbling away at the bottom of the bottomless DVIC slop-trough. And as such, I have come to realize how the Pharisee’s and the scumbags alike all HATE words. And, mine, specifically and especially.
But fame and power interested me slightly in my formative years, for several reasons, not least of which is that when I was  kid, I spent a lot of time on Hollywood Blvd, in Hollywood, CA, where Smith used to hang out as well, during his pre- “Fresh Prince of Bel Aire” days.
Generally, he caused quite a stir when he would roll up to Tommy’s, in his late model Benz ( I actually cannot remember what his car was, but I recall that he preferred late model Benzies or something similar) or otherwise show up at a club venue with a gorgeous ingenue strapped to his arm. Those who hung out, or lived on The Blvd-those ranged from teen runaways, to hookers and dope dealers, or punk rockers who squatted on abandoned properties up on Mount Olympus- would stir like bees, and in minutes, everyone knew that Smith was around.
He was an “up and coming star” then, and everyone wanted to touch fame, and hope it rubbed off. Except me. I was saving up to pay my way through college when I met a “mind controlled”system child named “Piper.
I personally was never star struck in any way, and have the unique ability to see people as people, regardless of stature. And I always somehow had a focus on the fact that fame is illusory, and that it can get in the way of other things that are more important. And in Hollywood, in that era, a lot was plainly “not right,” but also, not necessarily wrong either; that things were as they have been for millenia; and even moreso, that I was called to write, which is a tenuous fate for anyone facing “the way tings really are.”
Many years later, as a budding journalist, I tried to “make a difference,” by writing stories that defied “narrative” and that defied those who abuse power, and sought the gritty “facts” instead-and was soundly abused because of it by those that I write about herein and more, all of whom had their own designs on what I could or should do, what I could or should write.
SO when the researcher asks the question “who are targeted individuals?” Who gets gang stalked?” and so on, a simple answer would be that those who defy the lockup on narrative are primary targets, because narrative is the guiding force of corruption; and corruption is profitable; and the truth? Well….you can’t handle the truth.

vlcsnap-2017-12-07-22h26m08s502 (2)
I smell a rat!

But the truth is, in a society where Jewish-christians and then, al of their many sects and cults have a lockup on narrative, and where the mouth-piece of choice is the white female and her “others,” who literally CREATE boogiemen like evil Golem’s-those of us who see it another way are plainly dangerous to their old myths and lies, and cover-ups of atrocity after atrocity with their pseudo-morality, called “religion,” which many of our societies most astute have observed is a form of mental illness-but because so many suffer from it, it is the “norm” not the exception.
And so, the irony of me scrabbling around at the feet of Hollywood then was less than ironic, because I couldn’t give a rat’s ass about fame, or power; but “they” did, all of them. Sherman, the script writer, living in his cat-shit littered apartment, and cranking out pulpy manuscripts and cat-pawed screenplays;  Henry Rollins playing here or there, the Sick Green Hearts and their heroin addiction (as I recall they were usually too sick to get out of bed and play), and Bukowski’s bungalow blocks away-none of it meant “doodley squat” to me, then or now, as I simply couldn’t write an “ending” to any story I ever attempted- there are just too many new beginnings that the end is plainly outgunned.
Anyways- years later, as a budding college journalist ( I studied journalism because the paragraphs were moronically simple, and most American’s are adept at moronically simple), who worked in a little college news office, at a college  that, it turns out, was and still is one of the FBI’s “Somali/immigrant informant recruiting” centers, I once interviewed Lynne Stewart, who passed away in March of this year, 2017.
Stewart was labeled “the Terrorists Lawyer,” by the Bush Administration, because she had the odd trait of being able to represent clients according to the law-every ugly and precious bit of it, and to protect her clients, and to protect due process, and civil liberty zealously, with vigor, and regardless of their politics, or the political climate in which she practiced law. And in a social climate where practicing law and defending clients is demonized by the police, and their racist enablers, even lawyers ‘get no respect.’ especially those who stand for the CONSTITUTION.
But American cops no longer stand for the constitution, and have nearly al never even read it, because they themselves are little more than the paid armies of AIPAC and its enablers.
Cops who hate America give policing a bad name. Here is a “police opinion” of Lynne Stewart, from Michelle Malkin, who has likely chowed down a few sloppy cops dogs in her time. So many in fact that it is surprising that she can even speak freely:

Sicko Terrorist Lynne Stewart: Still Hating Cops

Well, sue, Stewart represented radical leftists, gangster’s and mass murderers, and non-Jewish Nazi’s alike; she represented “the Blind Sheik,” Omar Abdel Rahman, who was an actual terrorist, as opposed to these manufactured terrorists that we see being created today-and Rahman also died this year in Supermax prison, almost as a signal that we are at the end of an era-and no one seems to know it.
But what she was DEFENDING was due process and the Constitution, which is distinctly different than “defending terrorists.” And who could forget that King George thought the founding fathers were themselves terrorists?!
And, of course, she represented FBI star witness against organized crime, Sammy “the Bull” Gravano, who gets out of prison today. Gravano was an actual RAT who brought down the Gambino crime family, and John Gotti (at least- the parts of this crime family that are NOT on the FBI payroll, or otherwise working with and for the government.)
Like cancer, rats chew away at self-sustaining organisms, and then, let larger diseases in. Don’t get me wrong- mobsters are plainly dangerous, and plainly scary and all that, and Gravano made “hard choices” but this new thing- this ‘thing of theirs’? This government with no due process ever, and constant slander and spying and the destruction of due process in “gray area” that will NEVER see a day in court (and which they work hard to keep OUT of courts? It’s terrifying in every way.

Frances-it’s a whole nation FULL of rats!

Some might note in my thesis here, that our current corroded democracy was initiated by secret courts and secret laws, and secret practices in the “gray area” of policing and prosecutor conduct and misconduct. Gravano’s case was one of those that set this trend.
And, too, a cowardly trend was set in journalism as well, by the “nation’s opinion  leader” The New York Times. Here is the schmear that the New Yarwk Times put out about Ms. Stewart as an obituary– and I have highlighted the keywords and phrases that indicate a smear-in fact, the entire first paragraph is classic intelligence agency slander:

Lynne F. Stewart, a radical-leftist lawyer who gained wide notice for representing violent, self-described revolutionaries and who spent four years in prison herself, convicted of aiding terrorism, died on Tuesday at her home in Brooklyn. She was 77.

Her son, Geoffrey Stewart, said the cause was complications of cancer and a series of strokes.

Ms. Stewart, who had been treated for breast cancer before entering prison, was granted a “compassionate release” in January 2014 after the cancer had spread and was deemed terminal. Doctors at the time gave her 18 months to live.

A former librarian and teacher, she had taken up the law in the cause of social justice after seeing the squalor in the area around the public school in Harlem where she taught. She built a reputation for representing the poor and the reviled, usually for modest, court-paid fees.

Believing that the American political and capitalist system needed “radical surgery,” as Ms. Stewart put it, she sympathized with clients who sought to fight that system, even with violence, although she did not always endorse their tactics, she said.

One such client was Sheikh Omar Abdel Rahman, the blind Egyptian cleric who was found guilty in 1995 of leading a plot to blow up New York City landmarks, including the United Nations, after some of his followers had driven a powerful bomb into a garage beneath the World Trade Center in 1993, killing six people. Ms. Stewart would visit him in prison, where he was serving a life sentence in solitary confinement. Her death came less than three weeks after his: He died in prison on Feb. 18.

So, when I met her, and covered her story in a little college newspaper that had been ransacked several times (most likely by the college administrator) Stewart was touring the nation under federal indictment, working with the National Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers, and others; and I was being followed around and photographed by cowardly “mystery people” who ranged from tall Ethiopian men in suits, to flat chested blonde women and butch haircuts, or stocky meat-packer shouldered black women with bad weaves- and all of them with bad shoes (usually black, but sometimes “Eddie Bauer brown”).
And I was “crazy” because my relationships were undermined-James became an FBI informant; Laura became a librarian-much like Lynne Stewart herself had been a librarian-and another story I covered about a “terrorist” who was a librarian- librarians are highly targeted individuals, apparently. Let me know if you start seeing patterns, because…
My phone’s were constantly re-routed and redirected-even when I was in foreign lands. There was the “clicking” at the switch-fairly routine surveillance; but, too, the morons who repeated select words and phrases back to me over time. And much more going on as you might imagine; and much of that terrifying and heinous in ways that only deviants at the state level could think up, and disgusting; abhorrent to due process of law.
Many years after the time I interviewed her, my storage locker was broken into. My family mementos box was tossed like a salad, and my papers were scattered between boxes. So my “news clippings” were mixed with “family history” and my book and leaflet collections- the contents of several boxes of distinctly different materials literally became “word salad.”
And, my reporters notebooks had pages torn out of them, and these pages were put int different boxes or otherwise scattered about. Here are the notes these people came to take-and never a single warrant issued to me, or left anywhere. And this happened some five years AFTER I had interviewed and AFTER she was convicted of ‘material support for terrorism” because she did what?
She spoke with a cnvicts family on the phone. Yup. She got ten years for that.
Are you seeing any patterns yet especially patterns about how long they drag these “disruption campaigns” out- and how petty and trifling the ‘offenses’ are? Surely, America is under attack from SOMEONE SOMEWHERE- but it isn’t terrorists, because last I checked, terrorists LOVE speech.
How about this pattern: shortly after I discovered this burglary of my storage locker- which I did not report to police for obvious reasons stated all over this blog- shortly afterwards, “mysterious” pele contacted me on a web forum that has since disappeared from the internet-and thee mystery people were yammering on about how “yeah, THEY can even do sneak and peek searches of your stuff,” and so on.
So, here is evidence of my personal disruption campaign- because I believe in due process of law, and the right-indeed, the IMPERATIVE NECESSITY of attorney’s to vigorously defend their clients:
lynne stewart notes 1
lynne stewart notes
Look at these notes above ad ask yourself what could POSSIBLY be worth anything to anyone? If your answer was that I was personally villified, terrorized, and sufficiently in horror that I virtually kept quiet for many years, you would be correct- because the outrageous state of affairs of gray area policing, and Kafaka-meets-Orwell-meets-Fabian in the DVIC policing scheme that this country and the west is in today are beyond imagination of the founders, and even beyond the imagination of LEFTISTS of Stewart’s ERA!
So, for those peeking in, and asking yourselves “what is a targeted individual” or “what happens in gang stalking,” know this: I refused to cooperate, capitulate, cop a plea, or otherwise subsume “my” rights to those who approached me in secret, in “darkness” or who used un-Constitutional and undue processes and methods to ensnare or enlist my “support,” or submission.
In other words, in totally corrupted societies, they never come “through the straight gate,” and choose cowardly,ensnaring, entrapping, or  blackmailing work-arounds instead. This is what gray area policing, aka Fabian Socialism is meeting the total corruption of institutional power; and all of that WITHOUT JUDICIAL OVERSIGHT, or with judicial complicity.
So there’s that factor, and becoming a rat, like Sammy the Bull. It only takes one rat gnawing away at the bottom of the big huge sloppy pig trough to set a trend. And, as we see with our total surveillance state, DVIC dollars are the Pied Piper that these have followed-and led us over the cliff of this new “thing of theirs”-totalitarianism.
 

What is "gang stalking"? It is the result of a nation that respects no laws- and a nation 'for sale.'

The article below is from Business Insider in 2012. It documents one of the first official sources that claimed the government had sold our rights to “others,” who were wiretapping the entire nation.
The article chronicles decorated intelligence officer, and NSA whistle-blower William Binney’s ostracization, and excommunication from the cult of intelligence, as well as his harassment by the FBI for trying to save the taxpayers FOUR BILLION DOLLARS- but also, that he tried to preserve “Costitutional Liberty,” aka “due process of law, which Americans have not had since 2004.
In 2012, many already knew that the local police were using and abusing massive databases. Many already knew that ‘somehow’ that police, and multi-agency Task Forces had access to cell phones in real time, and that ‘somehow’ they could track “targeted” communications across a city, or across a continent- and into international jurisdictions (Hi Toronto!)- and that they could repeat back selected words and phrases just to let them know they  are watching.
While these people didn’t have a ‘name’ for it them, we now know it is the current sate of affairs where Fusion Centers were spying on citizens in local environments outside the view of any court, and outside the view of due process of law, and without respect for the Bill of Rights.
These people have a name- they are “targeted individuals,” and here is where the world began to know what “TI’s” knew as far back as 2003-4:

NSA Whistleblower Says The Feds Are Gathering Data On Nearly Every US Citizen

NSA ACLU
The government has been collecting data on nearly every U.S. citizen and assembling webs of their relationships, National Security Agency whistleblower William Binney told the Hackers On Planet Earth (HOPE) conference last week.
Binney worked for the Defense Department’s foreign signals intelligence agency for 32 years before resigning in late 2001 because he “could not stay after the NSA began purposefully violating the Constitution,” according to a statement he made in court records.
On April 20 he gave his first interview after resigning to Democracy Now!, asserting that the FBI raided his home after he blew the whistle on the NSA’s extensive spying on Americans.
On July 2 Binney, along with two other former NSA employees, agreed to provide evidence in the Electronic Frontier Foundation’s lawsuit that alleges the U.S. government operates an illegal mass surveillance program (i.e. Jewel vs. NSA).
His sworn declaration of facts that he’s willing to testify to are both telling and scary:

• In the ’90s Binney supervised the development of a NSA program called “Thin Thread” that was designed to identify international networks of connections between people from their internet communications. Since one side of the communications was domestic, the program encrypted the data so as to protect the privacy of U.S. citizens until a warrant could be obtained.
After 9/11 all safeguards went out the window as “the individual liberties preserved in the U.S. Constitution were no longer a consideration.” Members of his Thin Thread team began implementing a program called the President’s Surveillance Program (PSP), which collected domestic electronic communications traffic without any privacy protections.
• The NSA began seizing and storing most electronic communications passing through 10 to 20 wiretapping rooms in key telecommunication points throughout the country where all data must pass in order to move from one party’s network to another’s, allowing the government to identify and analyze any individual or group through a searchable database.
• Binney cites the $1.2 billion Utah data center currently being built and the new supercomputing center at the NSA headquarters in Fort Meade, Maryland, pointing out that the immense size and computing power of these facilities far exceeds the capacity necessary for storing targeted communications but is “consistent, as a mathematical matter, with seizing both the routing information and the contents of all electronic communications.”
In a nutshell Binney states – with considerable authority – that the NSA has been conducting comprehensive surveillance on U.S. citizens for more than a decade.

The Shirky-Masnik bureaucracy perpetuation principle

In well organized assaults waged by governments that work in hidden capacities to enforce and socially engineer a society through constant attacks on civil liberties, we frequently find useful idiots who willingly place themselves as obstacles to free speech, and especially, as obstructionist forces that ‘steal time,’ aka ‘time-thieves.’

these are situations where people will often seek to preserve a problem or a falsehood, rather than recognize that it doesn’t need to be that way. There are lots of industries where this is a major issue.
-Mike Masnik of Techdirt.com

Organized gang stalking is one such case where we see this at work-how bureaucracies work in “the gray area of law and social oversight” to prevent insight. This is best embodied in the common phrase that appears in the OGS dialectic “what is hidden” which some use because it is a Masonic/other symbolic speech, while others use it to flaunt their access to the many hidden technologies that I document herein, as well as their ability to abuse others in this capacity.
Obstructionism and OGS are Partners in Crime and Civil Consiracy
Techdirt.com does some of the most reputable, fearless, well written public interest journalism in the history of technology-and journalism. As such, while most MSM journalists cower(or put on their knee pads and slurp down some payola) in the face of the 72 Billion dollar per year NSA/CIA/FBI/DEA privacy rape machine, Mike Masnik, and the excellent writers over there have incurred their unfair share of  detractors.
And, as can be predicted, some of those detractors are little more than liars and punks who live in their mothers basements, and guys like Shiva Ayyadurai, who claimed he invented email. And gay robotic toilet slaves, like Peter Thiel, the guy who worked hard to subvert ALL democratic liberty via the Palantir/CIA/Google collaboration. Notably, Thiel has skipped town, and run off to New Zealand, where he is hiding out, no doubt doing “special work” for his corporate and military and CIA overlords.
In the fight to demolish free speech, the MIC and its DVIC handmaidens use every dirty trick, every crooked backdoor trick to obstruct due process and civil rights; but also useful idiots like Thiel and Ayyadurai are the  backup girls for the band of merry robbers who wantonly lie, cheat or steal to destroy the rights of others while getting filthy rich. They are the contrarians of logic, and the cock-block of free enterprise; and it begins with their pillow bitingly wimpish and vain, immature, fascist impulses, attacking pure speech and then, the free press.
SO it cannot be missed that these same are also on the forefront of the technologies that are currently accessing other peoples privacy via their “inventions, and imputing to those who they steal from “intentions” that are not only false, but aslo” classic Freudian projections, and in that light, they are also perverse voyeurs.
A world of smoke and mirrors indeed. From Techdirt.com, Mike Masnik scores a victory over Shiva Ayyadurai’s perversity, and his perversion and abuse of law:

Case Dismissed: Judge Throws Out Shiva Ayyadurai’s Defamation Lawsuit n

As you likely know, for most of the past nine months, we’ve been dealing with a defamation lawsuit from Shiva Ayyadurai, who claims to have invented email. This is a claim that we have disputed at great length and in great detail, showing how email existed long before Ayyadurai wrote his program. We pointed to the well documented public history of email, and how basically all of the components that Ayyadurai now claims credit for preceded his own work.
We discussed how his arguments were, at best, misleading, such as arguing that the copyright on his program proved that he was the “inventor of email” — since patents and copyrights are very different, and just because Microsoft has a copyright on “Windows” it does not mean it “invented” the concept of a windowed graphical user interface (because it did not). As I have said, a case like this is extremely draining — especially on an emotional level — and can create massive chilling effects on free speech.
A few hours ago, the judge ruled and we prevailed.

Now- an object lesson in how all of these companies-and then, their complete subversion of intelligence agents and agencies have the ability to destroy speech at the switch. Look at this paragraph below:

The Shirky Masnik principle states that bureaucracies will d anything to perpetuate themselves-anything.. And that includes using total sh!tbags like Ayyadurai, or his counterpart in institutional sociopathy, Peter Thiel-who was so mad that he was outed as queer by Gawker media that he sued it into the dirt and put it o ut of business. to subvert the very foundations of both free economies, and free democracies.

 
Do you see the paragraph -how convoluted and broken it is? This paragraph was written as this blog, and the computer it is written with, came under ‘attack’ by ‘unknowns’ and the browser froze, and Tor reported multiple “j-script’ malfunctions. And this, just one day after the same browser, on the same computer, was crashed using an attack I cannot identify-one where the browser opened repeated multiple windows until it was useless ( I could identify it, but I am still researching that particular attack).
You see- speech itself is under attack, by the multiple agents and agencies I describe herein, and that attack is at the site of the speaker, which is me in this case, but this goes on all across democracies everywhere, as the United States, working with the Five Eyes Alliance, and literally HUNDREDS of other agencies, NGO’s target speech itself, online speech, and all other media with disruption campaigns; in this case at the site of speech itself as I type into this blog.
I document this as well as note its psychological, and ‘real world’ effects here, but elsewhere too, I have records of these attacks, which are incessant. And in the “TI” community of gang stalking victims, this is an extremely common complaint, and dis-information agents can be found mocking TI’s with comments such as “yes, I have heard that TI’s frequently complain about sticky keyboards, e-mail theft, and computer hacking.”

In fact, hacking “target’s” is what the NSA and the rest are doing, as even the famous (and well funded) “OSI informers” has noted, alongside the fact that TI’s are also targeted with other nefarious attacks such as “porn deluges.” I have preserved a copy of the web page where OSI informers makes this claim, because frequently, the web gets “scrubbed” after I validate one or another fact or tactic of these hidden operators at our internet switches, and the thousands of programs that are trained on TI’s.
Here is a snippet of “OSI informers”claim/advice:
CYBER-STALKING

Cyber Stalking or Cyber Harassment is a related group of harassing behavior occurring via internet/online. Cyber Stalking includes, but is not limited to; Computer Hacking, “Trolling”, Spamming (Often including “Porn Deluges”, Verbal Assaults, Character Assassination, and Impersonations of the victim. Online harassment is a plank of the harassment protocol. If you have a website devoted to Organized Stalking you may have people emailing you to flame you, or claiming that they are victims & asking for support with the intention of discrediting you.

Now- I will rewrite the paragraph above as it was intended, but I note that my computer literally heated up to an extreme degree, and I was forced eventually to crash the browser, reload, and change settings-this is what is called a “social engineering attack” where hidden operators force the user to change behavior, aka “behavior modification.” And I note that while my computer is less secure in this second attempt to write this post, I can write easily now. See how that works? Seeing any patterns yet?
The Shirky-Masnik Bureaucracy Perpetuation Principle
The Shirky Principle forms the headline of the following piece of writing by Mike Masnik of Techdirt.com forms the Shirky-Masnik Principle stated as below describes how OGS online has become an institutional force,with offline consequences, and especially, how writers are targeted by morons with kewl toolz directed at us from ilitary bases, police and Fusion Centers, as well as NGO’s with dominionists, zionists, and Infragard rats working behind the scenes:

Institutions Will Seek To Preserve The Problem For Which They Are The Solution

by Mike Masnick

Filed Under:
business models, innovator’s dilemma, institutions, problems, solutions


from the the-shirky-principle dept

We already wrote a detailed analysis of Clay Shirky’s recent writeup on complex business models. However, a few of you have sent over Kevin Kelly’s recent post about Shirky’s piece that also compares it to Clayton Christensen’s Innovator’s Dilemma, but thankfully highlights the one key line in Shirky’s piece that may have gotten lost in the original:

“Institutions will try to preserve the problem to which they are the solution.”

Kelly calls this the “Shirky Principle.” To me, it calls to mind Upton Sinclair’s famous line:

“It is difficult to get a man to understand something, when his salary depends upon his not understanding it!”

They are not the same point, but they are related. In both cases, these are situations where people will often seek to preserve a problem or a falsehood, rather than recognize that it doesn’t need to be that way. There are lots of industries where this is a major issue.


Organized Gang Stalking case study: Real Estate, Rotary Club's and www.fightgangstalking.com

Bulletin: I have decided to continue to write at this blog on occasion, as day after day validates that OGS is a very real thing, and actual victims of this have written to me to share their stories (I have not published the accounts of those who I believe to be actual victims without their permission) involving all of the groups and tactics outlined herein.

Related: of the two studies that “examine” gang stalking, and both have recommended that those who claim it be isolated, shunned, silenced, and/or declared “mentally ill.”
And here is how one “community newspaper” has “framed”the narrative of OGS victims fighting back using the First Amendment- the irony meter explodes every time it meets OGS denialists and free speech rights. Especially note who the “badguys” are to that community, and to others who deny OGS:
“The flier that was distributed ” praises “patriots” such as Daniel Ellsberg, who released the “Pentagon papers” in 1971; Edward Snowden, who recently exposed thousands of intelligence documents; and Frank Serpico, a former New York City police officer who blew the whistle on police corruption in the late 1960s and early ’70s.”

And equally important to note is that these posts here, here, here and here have become integral to this narrative, and can be tested and retested against my many hypotheses. And, one of my many hypotheses is that the NSA et ass-hat has been telling us since forever that they are NOT spying on Americans-but targeted individuals and others have been telling us the opposite.
While I have not experienced rape or death threats from anonymous douchebags online or off for a few years now, or minor car burglaries since around December of 2016, or watched floating bubbles on my security camera’s that were placed there after being followed on Twitter by a retired liaison to a foreign intelligence service, or even had any new GPS signals emanating from my car (as tested with a LM-8 bug sweeper, which is one of the best pocket sized bug sweepers I have ever used), or experienced actual “24/7” daily stalking for nearly a year, it is important to note that this blog, and associated writings have been around for nearly a year as well.

[UPDATE 01/13/2018: Well, there were a few things after I wrote this post last year-maybe YOU can help me find my lost/stolen GPS?]

Do you see any correlations? Any causation/correlation errors? Any proofs of my many hypotheses about claims made by those who discuss online and offline gang stalking?
But without any rational doubt, targeted individuals have been telling us with increasing frequency that our government, working with five other “allies” and Israel-beyond spying on American citizens since 2001, is also waging targeted hidden campaigns of “psychological and influence operations” so that their domestic spying scheme never sees a court room challenge.

UPDATE 01/13/2018: Note that the FISA domestic Spying on Citizens bill has passed for another 6 years, as the NSA continues to target citizens tat it has been targeting since it first dumped piles of haystacks on citizens who knew what it was up to in 2001-13. And as Marcy Wheeler, aka emptywheel notes, the lipstick on the pig is not to be called anything but what it is-and what it HAS BEEN, since 2001:

THE SENATE INTELLIGENCE COMMITTEE 702 BILL IS A DOMESTIC SPYING BILL

And, Ms. Wheeler would also like to note that the NSA wants to reassure all the “good peeple” that “targeted individuals” are just the tip of the slippery slope,”
Oh, my-how rude and presumptuous and possibly sexist that I would attempt to speak for Wheeler- I will let her say it herself:

ON 702, NSA WANTS TO ASSURE YOU YOU’RE NOT A TARGET TARGET TARGET TARGET TARGET TARGET TARGET TARGET TARGET TARGET TARGET TARGET TARGET TARGET TARGET TARGET TARGET TARGET TARGET

While legitimate researchers of organized gang stalking would find my thesis validated time and time again, cultists, secret societies, religious fanatics who hide in secular culture, and organized gangs of statist’s and institutional psychopaths will find no such correlations. Academic fraud’s will most certainly find a lack of correlation here as well.
But to continue my thesis: Here is yet another correlation straight from the coveted anus of the Sacred Cow that is Main Stream Media (MSM). It is YET ANOTHER correlation between claims of “organized gang stalking” and “real estate,“which comes to me from www.fightgangstalking.com
In this case of “the Guilford CT Gang Stalkers,” we see once again that real estate related organized stalking, OGS and policing mix together in the toxic brew of secret, occulted, hidden and obscured un-Constitutional harassment, and we also find a real estate developer, who also “coincidentally” is Rotary Club member. I must point out that in the general literature of psychology, coincidence is often mistaken as a feature of delusional thinking. However, any historian, sociologist, or propagandist instantly recognizes the correlation between real estate red lining and coincidence, or KKK activity and coincidence, but also how it is a well known feature of cult activity and religious superstitions. Atheists, secular humanists and rationalists-and many Libertarians for some reason- seldom are obstructed by these last two major hurdles that psychology-by some coincidence-cannot seem to overcome.

Related Story: How the worlds most famous coincidence-the relationship between psychologist, Sigmund Freud and his nephew, the world’s greatest propagandist Edward Bernay’s literally mind-controlled much of the last century much like the NSA-to-Israel-then-to-FiveEyes Alliance is doing today

As I have noted and written about before this is ALSO directly correlated and substantiated in many cases of  OGS. Note especially that the local police are actively working to discredit “whoever” it is that is distributing fliers about OGS that they obtained from the website mentioned above.
Without irony (if this is still possible at this point), also note the following: a whistle blower is being called “anti-government,” and this likely due to the DHS thought and word policing aka the “terrorist threat matrix” which targets pure first ammendment activity by design; and that whistle blower is being “framed” as a threat, rather than as a concerned citizen. Are you seeing any more correlations, kids? Yeah?
Well that’s interesting. Those who derive their income from carefully phrasing what is or isn’t; who is or who isn’t a “threat” can’t seem to find correlations! And even refutation is perceived as a threat. Seeing a pattern there, with the “silencing” and “isolating narrative? No? Then look a little harder. Maybe take a look at the DHS “badwerdz” list.

Guilford Police Investigate Anti-Government Fliers In Mailboxes

July 04, 2014|By DANIELA ALTIMARI, [email protected], The Hartford Courant
GUILFORD — Police are investigating anti-government fliers left in hundreds of mailboxes throughout town over the past two months.
The fliers refer to “gang stalking” and direct recipients to a website that likens U.S. intelligence agencies to the Stasi, the former East Germany’s secret police agency.

“This neighborhood has an ongoing ‘gang stalking’ operation involving covert surveillance and harassment of targeted individuals,” the flier reads.
The website, FightGangStalking.com, professes to expose “the use of illegal counterintelligence tactics against American citizens by U.S. intelligence and law enforcement agencies and private security-intelligence contractors.”
It praises “patriots” such as Daniel Ellsberg, who released the “Pentagon papers” in 1971; Edward Snowden, who recently exposed thousands of intelligence documents; and Frank Serpico, a former New York City police officer who blew the whistle on police corruption in the late 1960s and early ’70s.
Guilford police Det. Martina Jakober said Friday that versions of the fliers began appearing in mailboxes about two months ago, prompting complaints.
Among those filing a complaint was Tony Fappiano, a local real estate agent and a member of the town’s board of ethics. The flier suggests that Fappiano is the “gang-stalking” coordinator and instructs those concerned about the operation to contact him.
The flier also suggests that Guilford police department may have sanctioned the alleged “gang stalking.”
Jakober said neither Fappiano nor the Guilford police is involved in any such surveillance or stalking operation.
Fappiano, who has served on a number of municipal panels, said on Friday that he has no idea why he was mentioned in the flier.
“I’m in business 41 years in this town. … I’m a former member of the economic development commission. Why somebody is targeting me is beyond me,” Fappiano said. “I had nothing to do with it and I look forward to meeting the coward that started this.”
Jakober is investigating whether the fliers constitute harassment. Also, by law, only stamped and metered mail may be placed in a mailbox, so the placement of the fliers in residents’ mailboxes is a violation.
Anyone with information about the fliers is asked to call the Guilford Police Department at 203-453-8061 or the anonymous tip line at 203-453-8240.

Any legitimate researcher of OGS will also connect immediately with other parts of my thesis-that “homelessness” or the threat of it is also a constant here as well.
Did Edward Bernay’s REALLY die, or was he absorbed into the Panopticon?
So if there were “gang stalking BINGO,” such as the case of the argest DNA exoneration in history which vindicated six people who were LITERALLY mind controlled so badly that they STILL have Stockholme Syndrome-but sued the pants off of that city and won 30 MILLION DOLLARS, then this would be a good second place candidate for having B-I-N-G——O.K.
Let’s recap, kids:

  1. real estate
  2. police running disinformation
  3. free speech-speaking up about your targeted harassment is demonized
  4. an individual claimant is villified
  5. isolation is suggested as a cure
  6. Rotary Club/secret societies involved
  7. us-versus-them, goodguy’s-badguy’s binary
  8. homelessness is an under current
  9. information/influence operations in local media
  10. lot’s of mysterious “well who knows fer sure?” and “can you prove it?” and “This guy’s a threat, likely delusional!” and so on
  11. in group, out group inter-relations
  12. hidden/occulted relationships working behind the scenes against an individual
  13. hmmmmm. What might 13 be? Oh Yeah! Disinformation spread through official channels…no wait, um……

Disclaimer: I make no opinion or otherwise make a statement about the individuals involved in this case, but rather, document these as indisputable facts, and actual proof of how “gang stalking” exists in the narrative of modern culture, and how it is interwoven between the powerful, and how it hamstrings the powerless.
Here below is the realtor mentioned in the article-note the associations that I have discussed above, and especially-again, without irony-note that he sits on the local “ethics commission” too!:

Organized gang stalking and the truth: "You can't handle the TRUTH!!"

Yup- it’s just like that line where Jack Nicholson say’s that. You know- that line from that movie with the Scientologist in it– Tom Cruz? Yeah- that All American movie about military hero’s. Yeah, that one-like there’s not enough of them these days.
And THAT really is the truth, as American’s have become too afraid-too coerced with the abuses and daily blackmail by the NSA et al that they are afraid to stand up against warantless surveillance. Well, some of us knew in 2003 what others of us woke up to the hard way, in 2013, when Edward Snowden (a REAL American hero) came forward and told us that our own agencies were spying on US and trickling the data out to the DEA/FBI/DHS ‘task forces’ and local LEO’s, security contractors, and the endless stream of neighborhood rats and cowards who think that stalking their neighbors is “patriotic,” all across America.
Because these days- the truth is, the NSA has been working overtime to build dossiers’ on ALL American’s, and twice as hard on those who dissent, or take the stand against these Un-Constitutional practices. Because why? YOU CAN’T HANDLE THE TRUTH!(Much less speak up about it.)
the truth
And the truth is, they are blackmailing you, in advance of any court case, or any ‘probable cause.’ And that, for the last 16years, since the grand intelligence agency coup de’ tat of America, circa 9-11 (not counting the assassination of JFK, of course-which is a ‘conspiracy theory.’ At least we know now, thanks to Edward Snowden, that in fact a coup took place here when the agencies agreed to scoop up all of your data without a warrant.)
So- it’s almost transparently funny that the former head of the CIA and all those other careerist douchebags who sit outside our homes, slobber on our windowsills, and switch our internet switches around in ‘internet black bag jobs,’are pissed.
Waaaawaaawaaa. James Comey,  foremr head of the America’s Political Police and intelligence agency insider/traitor/blackmailer-in-chief eats pavement. Boohoooo, John Brennan-one of the guys who used black programs against American citizens, got hax’d, and he’s is saaaad. I mean- I guess you get what you play for when you sell American’s to Saudi’s and other’s who look upon us a slaves and corporate ‘acquisitions.’
Sorry assholes- no American I know of signed on for that. We the people and all that. I don’t remember agreeing that you could sell me, trade me, steal mydata, manipulate my internet connection, or coerce my movements across time and space.

John Brennan 1123502-11-20170523092234
Former Dir. of the CIA John Brennan is in a huff- cuz’ Russian #badguys are trying to take over ‘Murica. So, he per-emptively worked with the NSA/FBI/DEA/DIA/ et military ass to target and entrap the communications f ALL American’s, and then, to selectively stalk them in cyber-databases. Cuz-#badguys. And he got to look at that data AFTER it had passed through Israel! Oy vey! Mazal tov! A marriage made in sheol! Those darn turreriss’s!

And lest I forget the NSA’s Black-bagger-in-Chief, Keith Alexander, and his cushy “sell American’s cheap” plan-and his cushy new digs! What a heavy price to pay…er…get paid, for stealing all the dataz from all the Murican’s! Bunch of criminals.
What Me Worry? The NSA will never target my daughters Barbie camera, right? Prolly the CIA will NEVER try to recruit my son because they have a wonderful photo of him dancing around in his bedroom with a stuffed teddy bear in his underwear, right? Suuuuure. These ‘American’s’ are the #goodguys- not a bunch of RATS, nibbling away at the edges and bottom of the bottomless MIC trough,  like some of those #badguys, right?
And that time-that one time with the Mexican stripper who smoked cigars with her…and my face in…a donkey….blurry focus….hangover….and those Guerreros…just that ONE NIGHT. Nahhh. Prolly those assholes didn’t get those pictures when I sent them FROM Mexico TO Las Vegas where…oh never mind. Made ya look, anyways, sucka’s.
And of course- who are you, anyways? The FISA court will probably never-probably never– target you by mistake, right? Just a lil’ mistake….or two, or three hundred thousand per year. Little ol’ mistake’s-the #goodguys seem to make more and more of those every year, with less and ess consequences. You know what they call that, right?
Yup. YOU CAN’T (won’t?) HANDLE THE TRUTH!!!!
BlueLine Flags Tattered Thin Blue Line Vinyl Reflective Decal Black ...
But the truth is, some “American’s” are trying to turn our flag black and blue, and with your silence, you are doing a bang-up job of aiding them. Enemies, foreign and domestic, right? Suuuure. What’s in an oath, anyways? Just words. And we know those are useless. But black and blue flags-and black and blue people? Priceless-because the #goodguys and all that protection, cuz, #badguys.
And writers, of course. First they came for my internet connection, and I had no one to report it to-because it was them at the switch-and that, altering content BEFORE a single digit hits the keypad.

Sure-why not. Yellow seems to be fashionable amongst those who took oaths to uphold our constitution.
 

Organized gang stalking and whistle blowers: William Binney, decorated intelligence officer gets his door kicked in to shut him up.

When Business insider online agrees with me that organized gang stalking, aka harassment of whistle blowers and journalists; petty criminals and FBI informants alike, probably, you should open your ears to those who claim that something unconstitutional and severely debilitating is happening in America towns and cities. Sure- if you have nothing to hide, then you probably also have nothing to say worth hearing.
But William Binney tried to save even you from a waste of four billion dollars. And because you are paying a ton of money for these things to happen to others whose only goal was to keep America strong, and Constitutionally protected, you might find moment to lend your voice for a change.
From Business Insider:

Latest Glenn Greenwald Scoop Vindicates One Of The Original NSA Whistleblowers

William Binney William Binney “The Program” by Laura Poitras via The New York Times
William Binney — one of the best mathematicians and code breakers in National Security Agency (NSA) history — worked for America’s premier covert intelligence gathering organization for 32 years before resigning in late 2001 because he “could not stay after the NSA began purposefully violating the Constitution.”
Binney claims that the NSA took one of the programs he built, known as ThinThread, and started using the program and members of his team to spy on virtually every U.S. citizen under the code-name Stellar Wind.
Thanks to NSA whistleblower/leaker Edward Snowden, documents detailing the top-secret surveillance program have now been published for the first time.
And they corroborate what Binney has said for years.
From Glenn Greenwald and Spencer Ackerman of The Guardian:
The collection of email metadata on Americans began in late 2001, under a top-secret NSA program started shortly after 9/11, according to the documents. Known as Stellar Wind, the program initially did not rely on the authority of any court – and initially restricted the NSA from analyzing records of emails between communicants wholly inside the US.

Gang stalking and proof: proof costs money-who can compete with Goldman Sacks, or George Soros, or government stalkers deep pockets?

Who finances organized gang stalking, proof, George Soros, Goldman Sacks, Government Stalking.
“Who finances gang stalking?”
What’s the difference between 3 million and 4 billion dollars anyways?
Decorated intelligence officer William Binney  built a machine to monitor the communications of foreign targets for just over 3 million. Then, he became a whistle blower when the NSA and the FBI targeted and harassed him– and they used “their machine” instead, which cost 4 BILLION dollars in prototype A, and it was designed to entrap the communications of EVERY AMERICAN.
And, they tossed that machine, wasted the four billion, and built a new one, which costs the taxpayer even more.
Their version of the great terrorist/badguy/activist/journalist/whistleblower/pedophile  catcher machine (The TBAJWPCM72) costs the taxpayer between 52 and 72 billion dollars per year. And YOU pay for organized gang stalking every time you vote for security over liberty; your own silence over speaking up. And that isn’t counting the lawsuits that occur as a direct result of this “small town terrorism.”
Because of the hidden, well orchestrated and well financed occult (meaning hidden, and in this case, black budget) nature of organized gang stalking, where we see institutions, corporations, and “chosen individuals” like FBI Infragard agents and even Eastern Star freemasons like Nikki Giovanni inciting mayhem AS THEY WORK WITH POLICE, proof is very hard to find in the narratives of those who claim they are stalked.

Related Story: how absurd/absurdist id gang stalking? Have a look at the case of Michael Chadwick Fry in Texas, or Mathew Riehl in Colorado, where we see all the elements of OGS come together; slander campaigns, crybullying by women who use police to fo their violence for them, and especially note the “coincidental” numer 13 in most of these cases-and the FBI refusing to investigate these well documented features in EVERY CASE .

However, as you read through this blog you will see several well documented incidents of systematic, organized harassment, and few of the people who report this are crazy, or mentally ill in the sense of organic mental illness.
What the victims of OGS are, often times, is under extreme stress, and duress, and sometimes under a debateably real form of psychosis that has been described in psychology, but not specifically in relation to tareted individuals, until we see that psychology is complicit in cases such as Martha Mitchell, and Jean Seberg, and maybe even your neighborhood “delusional person.”. And no doubt many Targeted Individuals do have pre-existing or recent onset symptoms of mental illness, and those who victimize them are frequently the cause of it; because there is no palpable legal or psycholigical mechanism with which to fight pervasive, chronic, disprivating warrantless police abuse, and illegal, unconstitutional surveillance.
What must be considered is a mental health related question of “who finances gang stalking?” This question routinely comes up in many blogs and video’s, but until recently, few of the bloggers attempted to answer this question. So, what must be considered is the proven cases of gang stalking that I have written about so far. Other researchers can find other proofs, and balance claims of OGS against what is extant, but here below arjust a e a few I have covered up to now.
Stockton city manager Bob Deis had the well heeled police/fire union move in next door to him and wage an endless campaign of noise terror, and more. This was financed by tax paying citizens, who can’t seem to find real work anywhere, while literal domestic terror is waged by public sector employees to protect their double and riple police and fire pension funds. The situation was so absurd that they even bought the house next to Deis to pad their portfolio. Meanwhile, like many cities across America that are being bilked in the “see something say something” make work scheme’s of these public servants, Stockton was then, and is now, totally broke and in massive debt. Bob Deis lost his job.

Related Story: Anti-fascist, acclaimed author, and freedom fighter Ernest Hemingway was said to be depressed, and even delusional before he committed suicide. He told friends he was being followed, harassed, and deprived of his privacy, by the pro-fascist FBI.
As history has shown, time and again,psycholigy/psycholigists collude at all levels to deny validation of patient complaints, and is an inneffective tool against an all-pervasive poluce state, as Hemingway was absolutely correct.

Anti-corruption blogger Jeff Pataky had nearly an entire police department ruin his life, and it was financed by local, state and federal taxes paid by citizens. And if I recall, he was caught up in a domestic dispute with his wife who later dated or got “extremely close to” one of her heroic saviors from the police department, which is a common theme in many of these cases.Makes one wonder- if you have nothing to hide, then….
And in these two cases alone, we see a pattern emerge which I will flesh out later, bt it appears that a mercenary element within police and public unions and institutions is blatantly abusing their power, and benefiting financially.
For example, when Rick Krlich and his wife Cindy bought a house in Hubbard Ohio, and the local police overlooked and even participated in what amounts to a ten year harassment campaign similar to the year that Bob Deis endured, and that waged by the local fire chief ;or the seven plus years that Jeff Pataky was targeted, these campaigns domestic terror have consequences and real mental health effects.
And I am certain that local residents aren’t always aware that this is the way their funds are being spent-and certainly each of these cities gets federal dollars as well, which makes these local occurrences a federal question. I mean-how many fires do they have in Hubbard Ohio? So I imagine those engines, and the fire fighters in them aren’t very busy with anything OTHER THAN stalking Krlich.
Well known whistle blowers William Binney and Kirk Wiebe, Dianne Roark, and many more were fired for blowing the whistle on NSA spying on American’s, and the agencies then set out to destroy them. After Binney tried to stop the NSA from spying on American’s while also saving taxpayers a few billion dollars– he was fired, stalked, and indicted for it after the FBI kicked his doors in and tossed his house. And all that because he tried to save the taxpayers a few billion dollars. Remind me again- who are the good guys?
So- when the researcher of organized gang stalking encounters the question, often written in a mocking tone on the extant blogs online,  “but where do the gang stalkers get all the money??” it is usually “one of them,” mocking the impotence of the people to defend themselves against this new and horrific privacy rape, fraudulent spending, and military madness.
Of course, if you have nothing to hide-then let’s talk about who finances gang stalking, and let’s have a look at the way these massive black budgets are being spent. But stop trying to silence victims of it. Because it costs tax payers billions of dollars per year in waste, fraud, and abuse.
Thin Thread versus TrailBlazer: a 4 billion dollar loss, at the expense of the taxpayers of the United States. Here is some of William Binney’s interview with Juan Gonzalez on NPR in 2012:

JUAN GONZALEZ: What—did it have a name, the program?
WILLIAM BINNEY: Well, it was called Thin Thread. I mean, Thin Thread was our—a test program that we set up to do that. By the way, I viewed it as we never had enough data, OK? We never got enough. It was never enough for us to work at, because I looked at velocity, variety and volume as all positive things. Volume meant you got more about your target. Velocity meant you got it faster. Variety meant you got more aspects. These were all positive things. All we had to do was to devise a way to use and utilize all of those inputs and be able to make sense of them, which is what we did.
JUAN GONZALEZ: And when they didn’t use your system, they—the NSA developed another or attempted to develop another system to do the same?
WILLIAM BINNEY: Well, that one failed. They didn’t produce anything with that one.
AMY GOODMAN: And that one was called?
WILLIAM BINNEY: Trailblazer, yeah.
AMY GOODMAN: Trailblazer, and—
WILLIAM BINNEY: I called it—I called it five-year plan number one. Five-year plan number two was Turbulence. Five-year plan number three is—
AMY GOODMAN: And Trailblazer cost how much money?
WILLIAM BINNEY: That was, I think, in my—my sense, was a little over $4 billion.
AMY GOODMAN: Four billion dollars.
WILLIAM BINNEY: Right.
AMY GOODMAN: But it was scuttled. It was done away with in 2006?
WILLIAM BINNEY: Yes, ’05, I think it was. But yes, that’s right. And we developed our program with $3 million, roughly.

Decorated intelligence officer William Binney’s sworn testimony here.
While on the surface, a casual researcher of organized gang stalking might not see the correlation between police and fire departments, and bloggers, and whistle blowers, most legitimate alternative media does see it; and legitimate psychologists can make the link. Further, in the cases above, we see the pattern: whistle blowing or challenging officials; real estate investments, federal dollars,well connected and well organized groups in positions of trust, and narrative control- who can and can’t have a job in modern America to pay a mortgage; and then, massive fraud on the courts and the localities that have no idea this is going on, thanks to the collusion of some in mass media, influence operations, and psychology.
So, when a psychologist might say (as Dr. Michael Wood said) “well, the term itself doesn’t appear in the literature,” or that ” these people who claim this all show clear indicators of delusions,”you can point them here, to this one article, and work your way back from here. While each case may be different in it’s facts or in it’s “onset” it is indisputable that it is a real thing, and it is very well financed.
 

Organized gang stalking and conspiracy theory psychology

Meet Dr. Michael Wood, who writes  thoughtful academic analyses about conspiracy theories. In a sea of conspiracy theorists and government disinformation agents, Dr. Wood is a rare, and respectable opinion as regards the “what is” of organized gang stalking. But he is incorrect in relegating it to the realm of mental illness, as much of the actual research demonstrates that organized stalking occurs and is under-reported, but also, because law enforcement collaborates with other institutions to perpetrate it, it remains hidden (here, here, here, here, and here).

Like Dr. Lorraine Sheridan, who has been widely discredited in the online community of targeted individuals, Dr. Wood seems to suffer from bouts of academia, and spells of full spectrum propaganda absorption but once you get past that, he seems to be one of the few rational minds out there who has addressed this topic of research, and he is clearly NOT one of the many CIA, NSA or other alphabet affiliated misinformation specialists with a “Dr.” before their name such as Dr. Robert Duncan, et al, who are as much informative as they are dangerous in the dialectic of gang stalking, as they are actively involved with mind control.
 

From Dr. Wood’s blog (which analyzes conspiracy theories from the perspective of a psychology lecturer).

The psychology of gang stalking, and the difference between conspiracy theory and delusion

If you’ve spent enough time on the Internet (or read the New York Times yesterday), you might have come across the phenomenon of gang stalking – the alleged stalking of particular individuals by organized groups. It might seem like gang stalking is a sort of conspiracy theory, and that we can maybe understand it in the same way that we think about things like the 9/11 Truth Movement and beliefs in UFO coverups. I’m not sure about this. There are some pretty major psychological differences between the two. It’s probably not helpful to conflate run-of-the-mill conspiracy theories, which are not considered to be an indicator of psychopathology, with gang stalking, which is widely considered to be the product of delusional thinking.

….follow the link to learn more.
Dr. Wood is a rare breath of fresh air in the smog that most gang stalking blogs are, and he has a solid background to interpret the data. However, as I stated above, he is also an academic with limited world experience, and as  a psychologist, he is clinically trained to avoid the schizophrenic narrative, and the pitfalls of personal narratives, which I have always found to be one of the most interesting failings of psychology, because as much as it is expedient to put people into categories and boxes with labels, schizophrenia is one of the most mis-diagnosed of all mental illnesses.
Then, there is the Martha Mitchell effect, whereby people who describe real life experiences to psychiatrists get diagnosed as nutters, when in fact, they are often whistle blowers, and others with counter-narratives that challenge the powerful. Martha  Mitchell famously told her shrink that the Nixon White House was corrupt, then, she was mis-diagnosed, and some have speculated that she was a victim of punitive psychology.
In the case of Dr. Wood’s analyses, he falls short as most of these pundits and bloggers do, because he simply does not appear to have had a life outside of academia long enough to get a glimpse of the real world.
And most interestingly, his work linked above, came out around the same time as the United States government and the British liberals were attacking “fake news,” and decrying all of the conspiracy theories that harmed their pet causes- “All men are rapists-but Bill Clinton is NOT a RAPIST!; while promulgating conspiracy theories of their own ( It was the RUSSIANS! They raped all dese’ emails and dese elections!).
There was a huge push in June of 2016 to discredit those who were experiencing an increase in political gang stalking, sponsored by neocon liberals and academics. In his work he cites one of the most widely discredited narratives ever written about organized gang stalking: the Mike McPhate hit piece that cites Dr. Lorraine Sheridan, a psychological specialist whose work indicates that she sees male sexuality as deviant, and the article which carries one of the most pathetic propaganda poster children for gang stalking ever-Timothy Trespas.
All in all, it’s hard to tell if Dr. Woods politics have clouded his vision, or if his academic training has clouded his ability to discern propaganda from real cases of real people who have been staked and abused. And I am not saying his politics are anything radical or even that I can define, but I can say with certainty that academia leans left, and also has the selective blinders of the AIPAC and other Israel forever war lobbies clouding their vision.
But my best guess is that his approach is the wrong one-for now, and Martha Mitchell is in full effect, and like it or not, academia is a huge cult.And certainly, academia is immune to the concept of “do no harm,” as pertains to propaganda.
On a bright note, he is quite well published, and his opinions appear open to dialogue. I suggest you follow the link above and read more.
 
 
 

Gang stalking, DHS, and law enforcement

It is widely documented in nearly every blog that discusses organized gang stalking that there is or has been police, FBI, DHS, or other agency involvement (much of it mis-attributed, as we see in the case of LEIU’s that they work in “darkness” and complicity with bad actors, across disciplines, and from within the hidey-holes of the “see something say soomething, even if you make it up” framework; and they do this with total impunity-even the FBI does not have access to the LEIU files*- and as such, like a gang or criminal enterprise itself), and all gang stalking is deeply rooted in deep state tools and database abuse where a targeted individuals data was gleaned illegally and without a warrant, and then used to “spook” them in a variety of ways, that any researcher of organized stalking is already likely familiar with.
Why the NSA database abuse is far worse than anyone could ever imagine.
But others note that surveillance role players and contractors with the Department of Homeland Security are also clearly involved in these activities. So in my research, I use this as one measure of the veracity of writings and video’s that document it. Gavin Seim has many video’s where we can watch the process in action as chubby government workers hide behind “rules and reguations” that they pulled out of a hat, rather than laws and due process, which are written in our Constitutions.
In security and especially covert operations, those who deploy these tactics do not want them widely known. And articles that chronicle the stalking of Rose McGowan by an army of spies provides a template of the horrific potential to coerce and frame individuals when we allow a surveillance state to go unchecked, and unaccountable. The cases of James McClynas of Florida and Rick Krlich of Ohio are also notable cases that document the abuses of local syndicates and city councils that were covered by MSM.
So, to a researcher of organized gang stalking, you will note that blogs that discuss this, but also provide documentation of this are valuable allies to falsifiable evidence that it exists, as opposed to bloggers who write about aliens, the devil, and talking to dead people.

The trick for the researcher is to uncover which is which, and then, to weed out the blogs and videos that are classic misinformation and disinformation, as well those that are purely deep state mind control operations, as we see here . For example, most blogs and video’s that reference Directed Energy Weapons, and electronic’s that are bizarre; or websites that dabble in the absurdly paranormal, although some are just odd accounts of unique worldviews, sprinkled with paranoia. And-most of the accounts are written by these same DHS/private contractor/NGO’s/foreign spies, unregistered foreign agents, and other scumbags working under the “community policing” and CVE schemes.
But any cursory search of the how-to and the who-to-target of propaganda and influence operations can be found online, and compared to these many blogs and accounts of OGS. Here is just one of the many declassified Psychological Operations manuals of the CIA. And here is the famous Simple Sabotage manual as well. PsyOps is a major feature of these operations.
Other clues that blogs and videos of gang stalking are psychological operations is that they give patently bad advice, such as https://neverending1.wordpress.com ( a site that borders on psychological sadism), which once advised TI’s to put a jar of water next to an electrical outlet; or sites that are very well funded, as is the case with OSI informers and others. Interestingly, several of the commenters at NE1 are Lions Club members, and others who fit certain profiles, as I have described herein, and many of them have now deleted or closed their blogs since I wrote about them. Others have gone on to work in OSI-type disinformation honey net operations.
In my experience, my rough estimate is that some 5-25% of all blogs are actually people who are indeed targeted individuals (TI’s) and the rest are useful idiots (some 45-50%) who work in and around LE communities, or subsidiary to them; some 20% are actually agency or agency affiliated. And small number of them are mentally ill, elderly, or just lonely people trying to fit in (these also show up in many blogs, like the neverending1 blog).
FightGangStalking.com is one apparently decent site that seems to steer clear of honey-netting or “DEW” misinformation, as of 2/28/2017 (so far-many of these sites start out well, and then get taken over, or manipulated by agencies, as many of them are just entrapment schemes.) So,  fightgangstalking.com, is notable among the many blogs because the writer only documents verifiable news sources and stories that any researcher of organized gang stalking can refer to as an official source. And, the writer is a former security industry worker.
Related: Here is a suite of free and pay-for investigative tools from Einvestigator.com that you can use to study your stalkers.
Also, and perhaps most importantly, the blog author gives credible background information about themselves, is open to dialogue ( we have exchanged emails), and does NOT allow a comments section. This last point is important because the great majority of blogs are a sort of free for all of madness, manipulation, mind control/influence operations, or honeypots whereby investigators entrap those who comment, or like Dr. Mike Wood’s blog on Conspiracy Theory Psychology, the comments eventually become disinformation outlets due to the well oiled crisis PR industry that I describe elsewhere.
The author of FGS is also familiar with the fact that much of gang stalking is perpetrated by security contractors and surveillance role players, and disreputable blackmaailers who work in any of themay “spy rings” that permeate the west today, likely funded by black budget’s and grants from the Department of Homeland Security and others. These quasi-investigations take on Orwellian proportions, and are highly reminiscent of the brutal psychological operations and blackmailing population control East German Stasi tactics of the 1960’s. But also, exactly like the case of Rose McGowan, who was followed, monitored, harassed, and manipulated across the globe for decades by an army of spies hired by Harvey Weinstein.
Surveillance role players and gang stalking
In the same way that members of the organized stalking community raised awareness that the NSA and other agencies were breaking the letter and the spirit of the law by wiretapping them, all American’s now know tat TI’s were right-the NSA is tapping all of our phones. And worse, continuing the harassment of TI’s by distributing that data to 15 other agencies long before that was made public. As some of us predicted in 2003-4, it will NOT get any more Constitutional around here, any time soon. Police states simply don’t go away-because they work in secret, and against due process at every step, building traps over periods of decades in some cases, as we see with Rose McGowan, who was followed for three decades by private spies.
TI’s are now warning that the Department of Homeland Security is using surveillance role players and cowardly, subversive, hidden armies of rats and snitches to target and harass them, and implicating the LEIU’s and others. This is not insignificant, because the DHS is actually said to be based on the model of the Stasi, and many today forget that it was a former Stasi agent, Markus Wolf,  that was consulted to set up the DHS in its early years.
From 2005:

Why would Homeland Security hire former Stasi chief Markus Wolfe and former head of the KGB General Yevgeni Primakov?
Is this part of the Bush anti-terror strategy? After all, Wolfe is the man who is credited with building up the feared East German secret police that was responsible for the disappearance and deaths of thousands of citizens. And, Primakov’s record is not any better. As skipper of the KGB he was driving force behind the machinery of state terror; a legacy that still has a chilling affect on many Russians.
Now, apparently, they’ve found a new place to hang their hats at Homeland Security. Or have they? Perhaps, the numerous stories on the internet are just fabrications intended to mislead independent research. That’s certainly one possibility. But, consider this; for those who have followed the activities of the current administration (the torture, the deception, the death squads, the destruction of Falluja) stories like this are difficult to discount. As a matter of fact, the hiring of Primakov and Wolfe seems fairly consistent with the long-term goals of the Bush team.

Organized stalking and cell phone surveillance

For nearly a decade before I knew about it, various government agencies were using fake cell phone towers to locate cellphones. In order for these devices, called StingRay, and Hailstorm, and  Triggerfish, and a bunch of other brands, to locate a phone, there was just one little glitch: they swept up entire neighborhoods of cell phone numbers, and frequently jammed the network so badly that no one in the vicinity could call out.

Few people, for example, are aware that a NSA program known as TREASUREMAP is being developed to continuously map every Internet connection — cellphones, laptops, tablets — of everyone on the planet, including Americans.

I won’t waste time imagining how many old ladies had heart attacks and died, or how many kids were kidnapped by crazed pedophiles (these guys are EVERYWHERE! along with SATANISTS!), or who drowned in a bathtub and couldn’t be saved in these neighborhood jam sessions, but suffice it to say there’s probably a few.
Related Story: a leaked catalogue of secret surveillance gear.
These cell phone tower simulators were being used without a warrant, and without the public’s knowledge for over a decade and a half before the rest of people knew about them. As  journalist, that made me mad, because the public has a right to know. But how can the public know unless someone tells them the name of these devices? Or how they are used?
Then, four years after I knew about it ( as they were jamming my phone, and a little yellow airplane flew above my head), I told someone else, who told someone else, and after some fifteen plus years of Stingray’s and other hidden spy gear being used to spy on American’s without a warrant, we see that judges have caught on a little bit, and cops are being told to get a warrant. Apparently, democracy is still bubbling up once in awhile here in the land of the free. And that, very very cautiously, because they are popping bubble’s before we can even begin make them.
From Techdirt.com:

Federal Bill Introduced To Add A Warrant Requirement To Stingray Deployment

from the reclaiming-the-Fourth,-bit-by-bit dept

House Oversight Committee chairman Jason Chaffetz, along with his Senatorial counterpart Ron Wyden, is tackling something he promised to act on after he was finished excoriating the leaky Office of Personnel Management for ruining the lives of millions of Americans: Stingray devices.

A bipartisan group of House and Senate lawmakers introduced legislation Wednesday requiring police agencies to get a search warrant before they can deploy powerful cellphone surveillance technology known as “stingrays” that sweep up information about the movements of innocent Americans while tracking suspected criminals.
“Owning a smartphone or fitness tracker shouldn’t give the government a blank check to track your movements,” said Sen. Ron Wyden, D-Ore., a member of the Senate Intelligence Committee who introduced the bill with Reps. Jason Chaffetz, R-Utah, and John Conyers, D-Mich. “Law enforcement should be able to use GPS data, but they need to get a warrant. This bill sets out clear rules to make sure our laws keep up with the times.”

When one examines how lawlessly and un-Constitutionally these agents and agencies have been acting-and for so long- one wonders f the private prison industrial complex isn’t giving them kickbacks. That would be a good story to research.

NSA general Keith Alexander
NSA head Keith Alexander as he hears the news that one-just that one bad apple at the NSA- spied on nine (only nine, I promise) women. Also, hoping his dirty laundry won’t get hacked, like he has been doing to others.

 

NSA employee spied on (only) nine women without detection, internal file shows-

A National Security Agency employee was able to secretly intercept the phone calls of nine foreign women for six years without ever being detected by his managers, the agency’s internal watchdog has revealed.
The unauthorised abuse of the NSA’s surveillance tools only came to light after one of the women, who happened to be a US government employee, told a colleague that she suspected the man – with whom she was having a sexual relationship – was listening to her calls.

From James Bamford at Reuters:

Why NSA surveillance worse than you’ve ever imagined.
Few people, for example, are aware that a NSA program known as TREASUREMAP is being developed to continuously map every Internet connection — cellphones, laptops, tablets — of everyone on the planet, including Americans.
“Map the entire Internet,” says the top secret NSA slide. “Any device, anywhere, all the time.” It adds that the program will allow “Computer Attack/Exploit Planning” as well as “Network Reconnaissance.”
One reason for the public’s lukewarm concern is what might be called NSA fatigue. There is now a sort of acceptance of highly intrusive surveillance as the new normal, the result of a bombardment of news stories on the topic.
I asked Snowden about this. “It does become the problem of one death is a tragedy and a million is a statistic,” he replied, “where today we have the violation of one person’s rights is a tragedy and the violation of a million is a statistic. The NSA is violating the rights of every American citizen every day on a comprehensive and ongoing basis. And that can numb us. That can leave us feeling disempowered, disenfranchised.”

NSA fatigue or learned helplessness and operant conditioning?
