Call your senator and tell them to vote no to the Cyber Security Amendment attached to the 2014 National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) Bill. COPY AND PASTE THIS INFORMATION below into BOTH OF YOUR SENATORS EMAILS!  They must know we KNOW WHAT THEY ARE UP TO AND ARE EXPOSING THEM!!! SENATOR MAIN NUMBER IS 202 224 3121  and their email can be found here…http://www.senate.gov/general/contact_information/senators_cfm.cfm
Jay Rockefeller (D WVA) has attached a cyber-security amendment (I attached it below)  to the NDAA 2014 bill in Congress to mandate that precautions be taken to protect America’s cyber infrastructure and private entities. Those of us who represent private entities, will soon find our free access to the internet eliminated. The fact that this internet control bill is attached to the NDAA is no accident because this means that dissidents, posting anti-government rhetoric on the internet, can be snatched off the street and held indefinitely for their “terrorist” views. There is a second and equally disturbing development in that the government has declared that the people of this country do not have the right to challenge the government on its unconstitutional actions. This is a position which fully exposes the fact that America is no longer a democratic republic, but rather a dictatorship which serves the elite. At issue is the ACLU’s right to sue the NSA for the unconstitutional  and unwarranted intrusions into the private lives of all Americans by spying on their every communication and their web-surfing habits. This position, taken by the government, validates that we have no rights and are living under a dictatorship. BILLS-113s1353is
Rockefeller attaches cybersecurity bill to NDAA 2014
Rockefeller’s proposal, S.1353, was unanimously approved by the Commerce Committee in July but has stayed relatively dormant ever since. On Thursday he submitted that bill as an amendment to be considered as part of an annual Pentagon spending plan that could fast track his attempts to land his proposal on President Barack Obama’s desk after attempts in Congress to adopt cybersecurity legislation have largely proven to be futile.

In November, WikiLeaks published a rare draft of the secretive Trans-Pacific Partnership treaty — revealing the United States’ covert international push for stronger intellectual property rights. Now, nearly a month after the first documents were published, the group is back on the case, publishing a new raft of documents from the TPP negotiations currently taking place in Singapore. The revelations are mostly the same, with the United States leading the charge for SOPA-like penalties on file-sharing and stringent patent reforms, but the new documents suggest that the public outcry against these proposals has had little effect on the negotiations.


NSA and GCHQ spies ‘operated in games including World of Warcraft and Second Life’

wowarticleThe NSA and GCHQ sent spies into online games to seek out terrorist or criminal chat and even to recruit valuable informants such as foreign embassy drivers who happened to be players, according to newly leaked documents from whistleblower Edward Snowden.
Intelligence operatives feared that games such as Second Life and World of Warcraft could be used to secretly communicate, move money or plot terrorist attacks, all under the radar of existing snooping abillity. The security agencies were already able to intercept emails and phone calls, but many online games were considered possible safe havens for illegal activity.
In response to that perceived threat spies created their own avatars and joined the games, logging communications between other players. According to leaked documents provided to The Guardian and shared with the New York Times and ProPublica, Second Life, Xbox Live and World of Warcraft were all targeted, potentially affecting tens of millions of users.


Unbelievable: ATF Using Mentally Disabled Teens to Run Drug-and-Gun Stings

ATF_LogoIf you thought the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) couldn’t stoop any lower, you’d be wrong.The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports that the agency responsible for setting off the events that led to Waco and were at the center of the Fast and Furious gun-walking scandal are using mentally disabled teenagers to advertise businessess that are actually fronts for ATF sting operations.
The Journal Sentinel’s expose leads with the tale of Aaron Key, a 19-year-old stoner whose mind is not quite all there. The ower of a head shop in Portland, Oregon, befriended Key and his friends online and then paid them to get neck tattoos advertising “Squid’s Smoke Shop.”
He and his friend, Marquis Glover, liked Squid’s. It was their hangout. The 19-year-olds spent many afternoons there playing Xbox and chatting with the owner, “Squid,” and the store clerks.
So they took the money and got the ink etched on their necks, tentacles creeping down to their collarbones.
It would be months before the young men learned the whole thing was a setup. The guys running Squid’s were actually undercover ATF agents conducting a sting to get guns away from criminals and drugs off the street.
The tattoos had been sponsored by the U.S. government; advertisements for a fake storefront.
The teens found out as they were arrested and booked into jail.


New US spy satellite features world-devouring octopus

"Nothing is beyond our reach," new logo tells the world.

President Obama is out to put the public's mind at ease about new revelations on intelligence-gathering, but the Office for the Director of National Intelligence can't quite seem to get with the program of calming everyone down.
Over the weekend, the ODNI was pumping up the launch of a new surveillance satellite launched by the National Reconnaissance Office. The satellite was launched late Thursday night, and ODNI'sTwitter feed posted photos and video of the launch over the following days.
Unmistakable was the new NRO logo that goes with this satellite: "Nothing is Beyond Our Reach," it says, featuring an octopus with its arms wrapped around the globe.
It's the kind of picture that you might think up if you were devising an emblem for a villain in a superhero movie.
"NROL-39 is represented by the octopus, a versatile, adaptable, and highly intelligent creature," an NRO spokeswoman told Forbes on Friday before launch. "Emblematically, enemies of the United States can be reached no matter where they choose to hide."
While the NRO might be thinking that the octopus represents versatility and intelligence, the mysterious creature has often been used as a symbol for a scary, evil kind of intelligence in popular culture. In the James Bond movie series, the organization long serving as Bond's archenemy was named SPECTRE, had a black octopus logo, and ran an underwater black market called The Octopus. In later movies, SPECTRE simply changed its name to OCTOPUS.
In any case, emphasizing that "nothing is beyond our reach" is not necessarily the image the government may want to be sending out right now, with many in Congress considering reeling in data-gathering. The octopus is, at best, an untimely selection. "You may want to downplay the massive spying dragnet thing right now," tweeted privacy activist Chris Soghoian once it was published Friday. "This logo isn't helping."
