    The FBI gets dirt on political opponents and the CIA protects itself by monitoring everything with a foreign component and the NSA watches everything.

    If it's electronic - they have a copy of it. You would be amazed what type of case you can build with 'meta-data' alone - enough for a drone strike.

    it is interesting that they found that even with the track everyone ability.. it has not stopped a single terrorist attack, a white house panel member said.

    The latest charade is the propaganda suddenly appearing that the TSA is no longer viable and the rush to privatize it.
    All of a sudden huh? But the truth is that they were functionally broken since their inception.

    Maybe now security theater is no longer needed. So we now have to pay for precheck or other similar services which BTW are privatized. Ooops nobody enrolled, so I guess we have to make then suffer. Very good. How can I get into this business. Oh BTW, we all paid for the TSA with our tax dollars to "keep us safe". Now we have to pay again. I want a refund.

    SHHHhhhhhhhh..

    Don't ask too many questions.

    It's not foreign terrorists they are after.
    I bet they can tell you how many times a day some rancher in Oregon pees a day though.
    Or every porn site a senator has ever browsed.

    Video, audio and cyber surveillance don't work, we need thought police.

    It's about control - when someone decides to stand up the file comes out. It explains a lot of why politicians and the rest who talk a good game - fold when they get there.

    Yup this is the main reason I would never run for office (aside from having absolutely no skills necessary for it). They would go retrieve my BITNET chats with girls from 1990, go find one of these girls, and get quotes of her saying how creepy she thinks I was. Meanwhile I would have no idea who this girl is. Not worth it.

    Even if you don't have a checkered past they will just make one up anyway.

    This basically goes for anything online. If a hacker wants to break into your network or PC, they'll eventually do it. It's just a matter of time and how important you are to them. Remember, there are guys living in their parent's basements all over sitting in their bathrobe just looking for someone that pissed them off.

    Surveillance
    Monitoring
    And
    Reconnaissance
    Tracking

    The only way to beat the beast is to get under the shed blood of Jesus. Then, abide by the laws as Romans 13 says and patiently wait Satan out until Jesus returns to judge the apostate church and the world.

    Oh, and don't get yourself caught up in one of those loosey-goosey charismatic churches with all that counterfeit, demonic supernatural stuff happening. That's the second beast in Revelation which submits to the first beast (the Vatican).

    Find a quiet, old-timey Baptist church where people actually know the Bible and it's an authority in their life.
