FBI: Citizens Should Have No Secrets That The Government Can’t Access


Keep in mind the S. Res. 1705: Intelligence Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2016 compromises free expression and privacy rights already gravely eroded, and will be coming up for vote soon as the Senate returns. Under that backdrop, let’s take a look at what this administration has in mind. FBI Comfy recently testified at a Senate hearing. Not only are his words chilling, let us take a second look at his background. Here we go:

.. like a frog sitting idly in a pan of steadily-warming water, too many Americans still seem unaware that the slow boil of big government is killing their constitutional liberties.

The latest sign of this stealth takeover of civil rights and freedom was epitomized in recent Senate testimony by FBI Director James Comey, who voiced his objections to civilian use of encryption to protect personal data – information the government has no automatic right to obtain.

As reported by The New American, Comey testified that he believes the government’s spy and law enforcement agencies should have unfettered access to everything Americans may store or send in electronic format: On computer hard drives, in so-called i-clouds, in email and in text messaging – for our own safety and protection. Like many in government today, Comey believes that national security is more important than constitutional privacy protections or, apparently, due process. After all, aren’t criminals the only ones who really have anything to hide?

In testimony before a hearing of the Senate Judiciary Committee entitled “Going Dark: Encryption, Technology, and the Balance Between Public Safety and Privacy” Comey said that in order to stay one step ahead of terrorists, as well as international and domestic criminals, Uncle Sam’s various spy and law enforcement agencies should have access to available technology used to de-encrypt protected data. Also, he believes the government should be the final arbiter deciding when decryption is necessary.More over at  Zero Hedge

Just who is FBI Director Comfey?James B. Comey, new F.B.I. nominee is not what you think 

What you will not hear from the Obama-friendly media, and our somnolent members of Congress, is this: Not only was the Patriot Act expanded under the supervision of Comey, Mueller and Ashcroft, when Comey left the AG’s office in 2005 he went to work as the top lawyer for…wait for it…”Big Brother” himself – Lockheed Martin.

When most people hear Lockheed Martin they think military contracts. Well, welcome to 1984. “Big Brother” is another name for Lockheed Martin, and security and surveillance is their game. They’ve been working closely with the National Security Agency (AKA: NSA, as in No Such Agency) for many years.

So ask yourself: Why would the Obama regime appoint a new FBI Director who works for a prime contractor that sells NSA the technology to spy on Americans? Would PETA hire a fur coat distributor?

Oh, by the way, where’s John Ashcroft today? Why he’s on the Board of Directors of Blackwater USA,which now goes by the harmless sounding name – Academi – conjuring up images of ivy-covered buildings and lounging intellectuals.

So in the days ahead, when the media and politicians tell you that James B. Comey will stand up for your civil liberties as FBI Director (citing a hospital room performance over the Patriot Act), remember: If Comey didn’t support spying on Americans, why would he work for a leading company that sells the government the tools to spy on Americans?

Are the manufacturers of hunting rifles against hunting?

FBI Director: I have to check to see if Obama can kill citizens on U.S. soil January 26, 2013

FBI Director Robert Mueller on Wednesday said he would have to go back and check with the Department of Justice whether Attorney General Eric Holder’s “three criteria” for the targeted killing of Americans also applied to Americans inside the U.S.
Pressed by House lawmakers about a recent speech in which Holder described the legal justification for assassination, Mueller, who was attending a hearing on his agency’s budget, did not say without qualification that the three criteria could not be applied inside the U.S.
“I have to go back. Uh, I’m not certain whether that was addressed or not,” Mueller said when asked by Rep. Tom Graves, R-Ga., about a distinction between domestic and foreign targeting. Graves followed up asking whether “from a historical perspective,” the federal government has “the ability to kill a U.S. citizen on United States soil or just overseas.”
“I’m going to defer.

    Pretty scary isn’t it? There is nothing in our lives the government thinks is private and what bothers me the most is all the people who say they don’t care because they are not hiding anything. They miss the point and they will never understand and it is because of their apathy we are in this situation.

    Terrorists encrypting for the explicit plan of utter havoc to our country and us…..versus Americans’ rights to encrypting our own private information…….which, let’s face it, is surely not private anymore..NONE OF IT.
    Where’s this go? Who wants our rights stripped?
    Can we strip only theirs? Why do WE have to have our information a free-for-all? As if we can, or SHOULD, stop terrorists from protecting themselves by limiting our freedoms? Or is that the case? This is a true nightmare.

    Law enforcement can’t play this both ways. They can’t say that third party carriers own the communications they carry from first and second persons, and the carriers can not keep those communications secure, from anyone. If it’s theirs, disinterested private entities, and that’s why it’s fair game for sweeping searches, then we can’t say they can’t manage it as they like. Communications companies encrypt data all the time, that’s why it’s hard to steal cable or satellite programming these days. If the government keeps overreaching here, they’re going to see what’s happening in Europe right now – the right to be forgotten. Then there just won’t be any data.

        Exactly. In the end though, it is the nature of the third-party communication (via a third party like a phone company or an internet provider) that allows this. We have never really had firm rights in this regard, and they have always varied from state to state. We need a federal law for this, or maybe even an amendment. International communications are a part of everyday life now and we have no constitutional recourse to how it is managed.

    I’m confused. The government wanting to preserve its right to kill Americans on american soil, a government giving section eight housing and welfare and legal representation to non-Americans who have declared an allegiance to death to america and Israel, a government that won’t execute one of its own Army officers who killed -13 innocent american soldiers on american soil; that country? That sounds about right.
