Hillary Clinton (the Benghazi Zombi) thinks America needs a “sensible” conversation on domestic espionage.
For once, I agree. So let’s start here: Who can cause more damage to America? White separatists? Black inner-city gangs? Or elected politicians contemptuous of the limited government and freedoms the Constitution protects?
- White separatists want to go off and live by themselves.
- Black gangs want to “kill crackers.”
- Politicians want a despotic America run by perpetual surveillance, your buddy lists, your credit card and tax records, your medical history and doctor visits, and your moment-to-moment location along your daily routes handed over by your blabbermouth cellular telephone – all sucked into vast government data coffers for use.
Which of these groups do you think poses a greater threat to America?
With that being said (and I think the answer is obvious), where should we start on the Benghazi Zombi’s “sensible” conversation about government’s domestic espionage?
Well, we could start at the beginning: the 1,400 FBI background files on members of Congress, judges and opposition figures that mysteriously showed up in the White House bedroom when Hillary’s occasional squeeze was acting as president.
How do you suppose those 1,400 files left the FBI and ended up in Hillary’s bedroom? What do you think they might have been used for? Opposition research? Political blackmail?
But FBI files are so yesterday. Today, we have real-time, moment-by-moment espionage carried out by the National Security Agency, a wartime creation that helped to fight the Cold War and defeat communism – at least in Russia.
Here in America, tech companies willingly hand over access to your private data in return for fat government contracts. And because they are afraid.
They know what you say, who you talk to, chat with or email, where your friends live and work and who they talk to – and they know your travel routes, which can be followed in real time from your cellphone. All without a warrant. All illegal, at least according to the Constitution, the law upon which all others must be based.
Since we have this level of (entirely illegal) surveillance available to us, doesn’t it make sense to start with the biggest threat to America? Shouldn’t we start with the politicians?
If memory serves, it was Scott McNealy of Sun MicroSystems who said, “Privacy is dead. Deal with it.” Given that, it would seem that the president, high administration officials, members of Congress and their staffs and other big bureaucrats with enormous, unelected power are the logical place for America to start “dealing with it.” Well, perhaps we should include Mr. McNealy, too, and his big-tech counterparts.
Accordingly, I propose a website. Let’s call it: sensiblesurveillance.com for the moment. Any American citizen can point their browser there, 24 hours a day. They will have access to NSA’s real-time feeds on the location, contacts, emails, telephone calls, GPS coordinates and whatever else NSA is collecting on all those selfless politicians so busy “serving” the American people. With a login and password, you can also obtain historical data. And let’s include medical records and tax returns. It’s all free, of course: We the People have paid for the entire illegal apparatus.
Since these are the people leading us into the terrifying New World Order of despotism and tyranny, We the People need to know everything about them, all the time, and save it forever.
The government they have created since 9/11 already knows everything there is to know about all of us. Given this it seems only reasonable that they bare their selfless souls before the people they solemnly swore, so help them God, to serve. After all, what could any of them possibly have to hide from us?
If this new system works out well for them, perhaps we can implement it nationwide. Government at all levels really needs to be exposed to the light of day, or at least the cool, haunting glow of the computer screen.
Oh, let’s not forget the tech giants, either. Their executives should be delighted with their new exposure to the people they “serve” through their business empires.
How’s that for a sensible conversation on privacy?
