The going dark problem and Silence on the Wire: silence is a two way street, and the case of Russian counter -surveillance of Americas political police using “low risk” tactical methods.

If you’ve ever sat still, in a quiet room, for a single moment, you know that there is no such thing as actual silence, because your own body makes noise.

“The amount of security you employ is the inverse of being able to do things with flexibility, agility and at scale,”

Breath, and other organic, natural acoustic utterances or disturbances are a constant compliment to your presence. Then, there are the subsidiary, environmental and natural sounds around you, as the breeze, or the distant hum of nature in its various forms.

And so, this is the human baseline of silence, and it is a valuable starting point within which we discover the fatal flaw of all so called intelligence, and counter -intelligence: the arrogance of intel operators in assessing the value of data received or sent, because after disruption and beyond the human baseline,its all just “other ”noise. And noise then, becomes a two way street.

So, in a free world, one would expect that the human rights and guarantees of “freedom ” would be maintained nearly religiously; as nearly religion itself, by those who draw paychecks based upon their oaths that they vow to uphold our constitutions.

But thats not what is actually happening in the west, since US, British, and the allied nations began their religion based, tribal-sectarian holy war that kicked off in 2001, and guys like me got to meet the “deep state ” head -on, after writing news stories without tribal -sectarian bias, and true to the form of the principles of journalism, and anticipating the Total Surveillance State.

 

Related Story: Take a look at how I was the first person in America to report on manufactured terrorism, and then, got years and years of black bag jobs,cowardly morons rifling through my belongings, and news stories stolen right out of my phone and email, and everything I describe herein AFTER that and more.

And look how that turned out for me, PERSONALLY.

Indeed, with the US FVEY spying,the accompanying “community policing, ” the western governments can no longer claim that they respect, or uphold anything resembling democracy backed by civil rights and due process procedures, much less freedom of any type.

So, it is here, where western governments have turned ordinary citizens into involuntary, non -consensual surveillance targets( aka Human Intelligence or, HUMINT )where the noise of ones own, voluntary silence is, “disrupted ” by the FVEYs data theft on every persons phone or computer and then, the exploitation of that data by intelligence operators to create what Dr. Lorraine Sheridan and others call “an echo chamber ” both online and off that is mediated by western extremist religious and political ideology, as we see here and here.

So, ROGS, the blog you are reading here, is what is called in psychology, a reaction formation, to the newly emerged total surveillance state, and the death of American democracy, which I once believed in whole heartedly, and fought for, very vainly, with well chosen words.

My country is no longer a democracy, insomuch as it ever was due to the multi-tiered levels of privilege, doled out to the select men and women, contrasted against the multi -tiered levels of slavery, peonage, and debt servitude that these others cast upon the poor, the dissenter or activist; the heretic and others who fall into the hidden slavery nets of any of the many sects and cults of organized religion, working through government apparatus both online and off .

So, this theological filtering, regardless of what cult, or sect, is also the baseline for all western dialogistics as we see in the sectarian targeting of men by known race -based operators; and in the resultant cult practices that follow, such as the un -naming of (primarily ) men in this example here and other examples I provide here at ROGS.

So, in such an environment of what is essentially the mass exploitation if individuals, and groups of individuals, one cannot act of actual free will, because these operations, and these operators, are in constant disruption mode. Its what their version of a society is.

In that light, there are many ways to use silence, and also noise to discern their capabilities, tactics, and methodology, AFTER the fact of them, casting you into their various webs of interaction FIRST.

Keep in mind that the pre -emptive, anti-democracy, anti-due process, sectarian secret police state justifies itself not from law, but from their version of tribal -religious and moral superiority.

In that world, its all binary, I /O data analyses: Kill or be killed; heaven and hell; black or white; Jewish or not Jewish; Republucan or Democrat woman or man, etc.

And it is that analyses which is its flaw, which is why they break and bend, and prostrate the law in gray area policing, aka “high policing ” aka political policing, as we saw with the al Ghazali problem.

So, no small surprise then, when ROGS was able to out a few Department of Defense affilliated persons here who targeted me on US soil as they worked ine or another angle of fraudulent FBI /DHS /Private contractor CVE program, or cult members who cyberstalked me on Twitter, working with Democrat party with operatives INSIDE Twitter monitoring my location; or most recently, yet ANOTHER Department of Defense affilliated, Brookings Institute person following my blog.

As I said: I know what kind of noise is natural, like how this humble electrician and merchant mariner was literally recruited by a gang strike force in LA, versus any of hundreds of bizarre DoD/DHS /FBI /NGO affilliated time wasters they toss,at me, like these guys here

So if little old ROGS, an American citizen who has never been convicted of any crime in any trial based in constitutional law, civil rights, and due process can be targeted and stalked, and harrassed by those I define, and name herein, wha else is goung on in western democracies that remains hidden?

And it is that last question that has,ROGS cheering for all the “bad guys, ” like Russia and China and even lil Kim in North Korea, apparently absent from an important meeting recently, lol. Because when “America, land of the free ” morphed into “America, just another police state, ” ROGS and hundreds of thousands like me got thrown under the bus.

Listen: China is thriving, and Russia protects Edward Snowden to this day, and Kim is no threat to anyone.

But I guarantee that CIA/DIA/NSA /FBI feeding down into “parallel colluding investigations ” and the subsequent constant surveillance of our webs of relationships single -handedly voids the constitutional compact, and the social compact as well.

So, I like to fight back by deploying counter -surveillance directly at those who point it at me, because my personal silence has been “disrupted ”. And in so doing, I learn a lot.

Here below, we see how Russians were able to anihilate FBIs urveillance teams privacy, and also how they were able to use this not -so -covert, sloppy, bizarre surveillance to gain valuable data about US security.

Which, would, under normal circumstances, inevitably undermine US security, if our own agencies hadnt ALREADY done that.

But in total surveillance states, security is ALREADY pre -emptively undermnied by tribal -sectarianism, and those who have deployed high policing on their own citizens .

FBI Follies, from Russiagate, With Love, via,Yahoo News Exclusive

Exclusive: Russia carried out a ‘stunning’ breach of FBI communications system, escalating the spy game on U.S. soil
Zach Dorfman, Jenna McLaughlin and Sean D. Naylor

Yahoo NewsSeptember 16, 2019

The discovery of Russia’s newfound capacity to crack certain types of encryption was particularly unnerving, according to former U.S. officials.

“Anytime you find out that an adversary has these capabilities, it sets off a ripple effect,” said a former senior national security official. “The Russians are able to extract every capability from any given technology. … They are singularly dangerous in this area.”

The FBI’s discovery of these compromises took place on the heels of what many hoped would be a breakthrough between Washington and Moscow — the Obama administration’s 2009 “reset” initiative, which sought to improve U.S.-Russia relations. Despite what seemed to be some initial progress, the reset soon went awry.

In September 2011, Vladimir Putin announced the launch of his third presidential campaign, only to be confronted during the following months by tens of thousands of protesters accusing him of electoral fraud. Putin, a former intelligence officer, publicly accused then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton of fomenting the unrest.

It was around this time that Putin’s spies in the United States, operating under diplomatic cover, achieved what a former senior intelligence official called a “stunning” technical breakthrough, demonstrating their relentless focus on the country they’ve long considered their primary adversary.

That effort compromised the encrypted radio systems used by the FBI’s mobile surveillance teams, which track the movements of Russian spies on American soil, according to more than half a dozen former senior intelligence and national security officials. Around the same time, Russian spies also compromised the FBI teams’ backup communications systems — cellphones outfitted with “push-to-talk” walkie-talkie capabilities. “This was something we took extremely seriously,” said a former senior counterintelligence official.

The Russian operation went beyond tracking the communications devices used by FBI surveillance teams, according to four former senior officials. Working out of secret “listening posts” housed in Russian diplomatic and other government-controlled facilities, the Russians were able to intercept, record and eventually crack the codes to FBI radio communications.

Some of the clandestine eavesdropping annexes were staffed by the wives of Russian intelligence officers, said a former senior intelligence official. That operation was part of a larger sustained, deliberate Russian campaign targeting secret U.S. government communications throughout the United States, according to former officials.

The two Russian government compounds in Maryland and New York closed in 2016 played a role in the operation, according to three former officials. They were “basically being used as signals intelligence facilities,” said one former senior national security official.

Russian spies also deployed “mobile listening posts.” Some Russian intelligence officers, carrying signals intelligence gear, would walk near FBI surveillance teams. Others drove vans full of listening equipment aimed at intercepting FBI teams’ communications. For the Russians, the operation was “amazingly low risk in an angering way,” said a former senior intelligence official.

The FBI teams were using relatively lightweight radios with limited range, according to former officials. These low-tech devices allowed the teams to move quickly and discreetly while tracking their targets, which would have been more difficult with clunkier but more secure technology, a former official said. But the outdated radios left the teams’ communications vulnerable to the Russians. “The amount of security you employ is the inverse of being able to do things with flexibility, agility and at scale,” said the former official.

A former senior counterintelligence official blamed the compromises on a “hodgepodge of systems” ineffective beyond the line of sight. “The infrastructure that was supposed to be built, they never followed up, or gave us the money for it,” said the former official. “The intelligence community has never gotten an integrated system.”

The limitations of the radio technology, said the former senior officials, led the FBI’s surveillance personnel to communicate on the backup systems.

“Eventually they switched to push-to-talk cellphones,” said a former counterintelligence executive. “The tech guys would get upset by that, because if they could intercept radio, they might be able to intercept telephones.”

That is indeed what happened. Those devices were then identified and compromised by Russian intelligence operatives. (A number of other countries’ surveillance teams — including those from hostile services — also transitioned from using radios to cellphones during this time, noted another former official.)

Have you noticed the CIA listens in to key discussions online?

The headline up there is an inside joke-it came from inside my head. You see, lot’s of people think that sooper seekrit agencies like the CIA listens to us all. But that’s not true! That’s crazy! And worse- a “potentially dangerous tribe of troubled minds” in the organized gang stalking online community are starting to talk about their troubles online! They must be stopped!
But the truth is, the CIA listens to some of us, more than others of us in this modern Operation Gladio/aka CHAOS. And: the star chambers wage battle between six pointed stars versus five pointed stars, and MORE CHAOS!!!! With some THIRTEENS thrown in to the lions den (lions are seldom reported to wear high heels, but there are exceptions. Like when the rotary wheel is used as a form of domestic NTT, and Mooses and Elks and Lions Bears conspire in High Heels Policing. Ooops. Bears are Russians-never mind)

And William Binney, who recently sat down with the CIA director, is one of those “troubled people.” He has even lent his name to the targeted individual community, to investigate gang stalking. Yeah, for real.
And the Washington Post-one of the deep states favorite places to take a leak-say’s “Binney is playing with fire!” Let me know if that sounds like a threatening/threat narrative laden headline (does the use of THAT word up my DHS “threat matrix score?”)-because that could indicate paranoia, and we would have to get you some mental health treatment. Maybe, the CIA’s Mormon torturers, Mitchell and Jessen could take a whack at you in a black site, and get YOU the help YOU need! Because psychologists are in on it at every level-to help you, of course.
Here-let’s have a look at what one of the Rubin Klan have to say about that meeting (you might start to see patterns in journalism when people who are in the Klan of Rubin show up pin a narrative. Here-look at this Rubin sand-witch- a serial rape hoaxer):
William Binney About to Get Tossed Into Sheol!!! According to Jennifer Rubin
My Post colleague Aaron Blake reports:

The Intercept just broke a pretty big story: CIA Director Mike Pompeo reportedly met with the purveyor of a disputed theory about the internal Democratic National Committee emails that were released last year — a theory that runs counter to the intelligence community’s own long-standing conclusions about the matter.
It’s not the first example of Pompeo doing something that has been put under microscope. But there is a common thread running through just about every example: Pompeo doing and saying questionable things involving Russia — and those questionable things tend to lean in a pro-Trump direction.

I still remember when “those people” said the “deep state” was a conspiracy theory-do you? Yeah, and now look-Google has 42 MILLION results for that exact term. Sorry, Dr’s Mike, and Lorraine, and David- but the troubled minds tribe is growing! And- deep state is really a code word for “traitors.”
And even our own government has noted that SOMEONE likely has an actual sound cannon that was used on our diplomats in Cuba. Never mind the narrative distortion that has gone on since this story broke-because “webwashing” is a real thing.
Ever notice how the things I write about here at ROGS happen in “real news” shortly after I get on the case? Yeah-it’s a pattern-my long term case of apophenia following me around like Gloria Ghost. You might have forgotten Gloria, so here is a picture of my damned sell in dis’ dress:

rabbit
This is my imaginary friend, Gloria Ghost, the scar faced bunny. Only I can see her-she’s totally in my head. Psychologists tell me it’s apophenia. Some people say Gloria is full of sh!t, but I always correct them, and let them know that it’s not sh!t-it’s dumpsters full of garbage called a “dossiere'” with augmented reality at the internet switch, and recycling of old, tired tropes and narratives of moral panics dating back to 1913. Gloria is Edward Bernay’s favorite daughter- he lit her on fire and called her a “Liberty Torch.” Poor poor Gloria.

Well-who knew? My old neighbor Doug’s friend Pompeo called one of my favorite whistle blowers, William Binney into his star chamber the other day-no kidding. And I’m pretty sure that it was Doug who made it happen (Hi Doug! Where dd you disappear to anyways-and was REAL ESTATE involved?). So, I think now is a good time to revisit my “theory” of the horsehair worm in the crickets head, which I call “memetic neuro-fasciitis of the mind.”
Or, as you know it “the NSA data entrapment scheme that targets ALL American’s and uses the collected data to steal elections by harassing, manipulating, and “no touch torturing” political opponents of the deep state (aka the “gay mafia”) and so on.
You might remember Bill Binney as a true and real American Hero who built a sooper seekrit internet email and phone call interception machine back around 2001, the goal of which was to capture intelligence on FOREIGN spies and bad guys. But because his machine respected our Constitutional rights of due process, and was extremely cost effective, coming in just under FOUR MILLION- he was fired, and the NSA built a FOUR BILLION dollar machine instead, and targeted AMERICANS and politics. Then, they tossed that machine in the dumpster, and built one that cost 72 BILLION per year.
Then, the FBI kicked his door in to shut him up from talking about it. You can beat the charge, but you can’t beat the ride, they say.
Well- how else to build and enforce, and police, and re-police a narrative that demands a climate of domestic terror??!! And how to get more monies for all those helpful, and hungry hungry hungry DVIC Gloria Bunnies in high heels? I have an idea! How about we AMERITHRAX the crap out of the narrative? Yeah! Go team black/red! Here- from Washington’s bloghave a look at the AMERITHRAX hoax, which claimed the lives of five American’s.
Good Ol’ FBI-I guess every totalitarian bankster state needs a domestic political police to suppress, intimidate, bully, frame, and harass journalists and dissenters and writers and save cute puppies and all that- to save them from those who break into our Windows 10 to get a grab at our kids, or wage years long black bag jobs. I mean-Hitler had the SS and all those brownshirted patriots stalking for Der Muterland, and Stalin had the Cheka and the NKDV, and who can forget how well the Stasi worked in East Germany as John LeCarre’ wrote about folks who tinker around behind the scenes and exploit the narrative itself(or whose asses get fatter by the day counting beans in the DHS right now)!?
Well anyways- if you have been following my writing for the last few years before this blog, you will see I have chronicled these deep state “disruption campaigns” since around 2004. Yeah- not a profitable business model, that’s for sure. BUT: a very important check against the balance sheet which is always hungry hungry hungry! Checks and balanceslike alternative media and blogging– are the thinnest and most fragile threads that sew our democracy together, so that those who would-and can and do-tear us apart don’t get their way.
Here’s a bit from the VIPS memo, which is a complete refutation of the DNC “Russian Hacking” narrative, which documents INSTEAD a “someone most likely copied the data to a thumb drive” narrative (maybe the drive had a case of bad USB??):

MEMORANDUM FOR: The President
FROM: Veteran Intelligence Professionals for Sanity (VIPS)
SUBJECT: Was the “Russian Hack” an Inside Job?
Executive Summary
Forensic studies of “Russian hacking” into Democratic National Committee computers last year reveal that on July 5, 2016, data was leaked (not hacked) by a person with physical access to DNC computer. After examining metadata from the “Guccifer 2.0” July 5, 2016 intrusion into the DNC server, independent cyber investigators have concluded that an insider copied DNC data onto an external storage device.

Key among the findings of the independent forensic investigations is the conclusion that the DNC data was copied onto a storage device at a speed that far exceeds an Internet capability for a remote hack. Of equal importance, the forensics show that the copying was performed on the East coast of the U.S. Thus far, mainstream media have ignored the findings of these independent studies [see here and here].
Independent analyst Skip Folden, who retired after 25 years as the IBM Program Manager for Information Technology, US, who examined the recent forensic findings, is a co-author of this Memorandum. He has drafted a more detailed technical report titled “Cyber-Forensic Investigation of ‘Russian Hack’ and Missing Intelligence Community Disclaimers,” and sent it to the offices of the Special Counsel and the Attorney General. VIPS member William Binney, a former Technical Director at the National Security Agency, and other senior NSA “alumni” in VIPS attest to the professionalism of the independent forensic findings.
The recent forensic studies fill in a critical gap. Why the FBI neglected to perform any independent forensics on the original “Guccifer 2.0” material remains a mystery – as does the lack of any sign that the “hand-picked analysts” from the FBI, CIA, and NSA, who wrote the “Intelligence Community Assessment” dated January 6, 2017, gave any attention to forensics.
NOTE: There has been so much conflation of charges about hacking that we wish to make very clear the primary focus of this Memorandum. We focus specifically on the July 5, 2016 alleged Guccifer 2.0 “hack” of the DNC server. In earlier VIPS memoranda we addressed the lack of any evidence connecting the Guccifer 2.0 alleged hacks and WikiLeaks, and we asked President Obama specifically to disclose any evidence that WikiLeaks received DNC data from the Russians [see here and here].
Addressing this point at his last press conference (January 18), he described “the conclusions of the intelligence community” as “not conclusive,” even though the Intelligence Community Assessment of January 6 expressed “high confidence” that Russian intelligence “relayed material it acquired from the DNC … to WikiLeaks.”
Obama’s admission came as no surprise to us. It has long been clear to us that the reason the U.S. government lacks conclusive evidence of a transfer of a “Russian hack” to WikiLeaks is because there was no such transfer. Based mostly on the cumulatively unique technical experience of our ex-NSA colleagues, we have been saying for almost a year that the DNC data reached WikiLeaks via a copy/leak by a DNC insider (but almost certainly not the same person who copied DNC data on July 5, 2016).
From the information available, we conclude that the same inside-DNC, copy/leak process was used at two different times, by two different entities, for two distinctly different purposes:
-(1) an inside leak to WikiLeaks before Julian Assange announced on June 12, 2016, that he had DNC documents and planned to publish them (which he did on July 22) – the presumed objective being to expose strong DNC bias toward the Clinton candidacy; and
-(2) a separate leak on July 5, 2016, to pre-emptively taint anything WikiLeaks might later publish by “showing” it came from a “Russian hack.”
*  *  *
Mr. President:
This is our first VIPS Memorandum for you, but we have a history of letting U.S. Presidents know when we think our former intelligence colleagues have gotten something important wrong, and why. For example, our first such memorandum, a same-day commentary for President George W. Bush on Colin Powell’s U.N. speech on February 5, 2003, warned that the “unintended consequences were likely to be catastrophic,” should the U.S. attack Iraq and “justify” the war on intelligence that we retired intelligence officers could readily see as fraudulent and driven by a war agenda.

The January 6 “Intelligence Community Assessment” by “hand-picked” analysts from the FBI, CIA, and NSA seems to fit into the same agenda-driven category. It is largely based on an “assessment,” not supported by any apparent evidence, that a shadowy entity with the moniker “Guccifer 2.0” hacked the DNC on behalf of Russian intelligence and gave DNC emails to WikiLeaks.
The recent forensic findings mentioned above have put a huge dent in that assessment and cast serious doubt on the underpinnings of the extraordinarily successful campaign to blame the Russian government for hacking. The pundits and politicians who have led the charge against Russian “meddling” in the U.S. election can be expected to try to cast doubt on the forensic findings, if they ever do bubble up into the mainstream media. But the technical limitations of today’s Internet are widely understood. We are prepared to answer any substantive challenges on their merits.
You may wish to ask CIA Director Mike Pompeo what he knows about this. Our own lengthy intelligence community experience suggests that it is possible that neither former CIA Director John Brennan, nor the cyber-warriors who worked for him, have been completely candid with their new director regarding how this all went down.

HAhahahahaHahaha. Apophenia. Epiphanies. Hahahahahaha. I’m going CRAAaaaAAAAzzzYYY!. Mmmmmmbwahaahahahhaaha.
And now, you are too. But-it IS all related indeed-to politics and political policing of words themselves. Try not to get too involved in all the pattterns….But if you REALLY want to go nuts, decipher the meaning of all those letters just above this paragraph. That should keep you busy for awhile-I mean-you lard asses have nothing better to do anyways.
Well sure- looking for Stephen Paddocks hard drive and all. That will keep you busy the same way that Oswald thingy kept you busy for 60 years or so. HAHAHHAHAHAHAHAHAAHa.
Yeah- it’s in the party van.
FBI caught with its pants down, and its game wide open in Asia-is that really a bad thing?!?FBI_Party_van2FBI_Party_van2.jpg

Organized gang stalking and intelligence agencies and Russia

Organized stalking, gas lighting,  and intelligence agency: the Russians did it?
You open the door to your flat, and there, on the floor is your mascot, your beloved pet, dead on the floor. Your furniture has been moved around-but just enough t cause you to notice, and not enough to be completely out of place. Maybe there is a sugar bowl in the middle of the kitchen floor. Odd, you think. And then, the fear sets in. You have been gas-lighted.
Organized gang stalking and intelligence agencies: From Russia with Love-gang stalking at the US embassy.
US ambassadors gas lighted and stalked. A story about gas lighting makes it’s it’s way into mainstream media every now and then, and then it disappears (disappearance is a common theme in OGS). The story chronicles how the US Embassy in Russia is under surveillance, or how the Russians are gas lighting US diplomats-but also, how the Russians are the eternal bad guys in the western narrative, and especially, that this story is a regurgitation of cold war era politics, and it is generally an arms industry sales pitch: cold war hysteria is good for business in the MIC.

Related Story: How do FBI agents work with sherrifs departments and local police to perpetrate “black bag jobs,”without warrants, due process, while flaunting, and mocking judicial oversight-aka “gas lighting” in the OGS dialectic?

It always states that diplomats were gas lighted, stalked, and harassed in the identical way that targeted individuals claim they are stalked and harassed. In every incident, and in every individual feature, ambassadors, spies, consorts and agents describe the “what is” of organized gang stalking: phone calls, hangups, noise campaigns, electronic interception of communications, dead pets, garbage strewn over their lawns and so on.
All intelligence agencies, whether local, state, federal or international, practice gang stalking and gas lighting. It is a staple of the intelligence community playbook. So it is neither surprising, nor strange that complaints of organized stalking have increased, as the FBI and ICE and the DHS in general attempt to move their Congressional funding goalpost  designation from “law enforcement” to “intelligence agency.”
And it is not surprising that the general sloppiness of their operations have spilled onto the internet, as low status individuals who have been targeted for practice begin to describe it online. Such is the nature of government experimentation on citizens, which has a long dark history in America.And so do police agencies and agents who harass citizens to pad statistical data, or gain funding increases.

Russian spy agency targeting western diplomats

FSB using psychological techniques developed by KGB to intimidate and demoralise diplomatic staff, activists and journalists

Russia’s spy agency is waging a massive undercover campaign of harassment against British and American diplomats, as well as other targets, using deniable “psychological” techniques developed by the KGB, a new book reveals.
The federal security service (FSB) operation involves breaking into the private homes of western diplomats – a method the US state department describes as “home intrusions”. Typically the agents move around personal items, open windows and set alarms in an attempt to demoralise and intimidate their targets.
The FSB operation includes the bugging of private apartments, widespread phone tapping, physical surveillance, and email interception. Its victims include local Russian staff working for western embassies, opposition activists, human rights workers and journalists.
The clandestine campaign is revealed in Mafia State, a book by the Guardian’s former Moscow correspondent Luke Harding, serialised in Saturday’s Weekend magazine.
The British and American governments are acutely aware of the FSB’s campaign of intimidation. But neither has publicly complained about these demonstrative “counter-intelligence” measures, for fear of further straining already difficult relations with Vladmir Putin’s resurgent regime. Putin, a former KGB lieutenant colonel, was head of the FSB.

British sources admit they have files “five or six inches thick” detailing FSB break-ins and other incidents of harassment against Moscow embassy staff.
UPDATE: Since I wrote this post, it has been revealed in MSM that the US Government suspects that sound weapons, aka “health weapons” are being used against American diplomats in Cuba.
Meanwhile, US police agencies and intelligence agencies are gleefully continuing their massive spying campaigns against their own citizens, mass shooting victims are piling up as US domestic agencies gang stalk people to madness, and some are running the DHS like the East German Stasi. Guess which “badguys” I am NOT worried about?
