Biden administration develops spy network with tech to stamp out ‘White Supremacists’

We learn that a new system to “methodically track” domestic terrorism cases has been implemented that includes working with tech companies. They will work with them to “eliminate terrorist content online.” “Open Sources” is the operational code for spying. It’s all hands on deck to stamp out White Supremacists. Both DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas and AG Garland are out there this week as Biden’s “wingmen.” Wouldn’t it have been so nice if Trump would have had half of a “wing man” that Biden has? 

If this whole business doesn’t send a chill down your spine, then you haven’t read any history. Of course this is all based supposedly on the January 6 incident.

WASHINGTON (AP) — The Biden administration says it will enhance its analysis of threats from domestic terrorists, including the sharing of intelligence within law enforcement agencies, and will work with tech companies to eliminate terrorist content online as part of a nationwide strategy to combat domestic terrorism.

A report from the Office of the Director of National Intelligence found that domestic violent extremists posed an increased threat in 2021, with white supremacist groups and anti-government militias posing the highest risk, officials said.

The new strategy includes enhancing the government’s analysis of domestic terrorism and improving the information that is shared between local, state and federal law enforcement agencies. Administration officials said the Justice Department had also implemented a new system to “methodically track” domestic terrorism cases nationwide within the FBI.

……..

The government’s new plan also includes an effort to identify government employees who may pose a domestic terrorism threat, with a number of federal agencies working on new policies and programs to root out potential domestic extremists in law enforcement and in the military.

A senior administration official said the Office of Personnel Management was considering updating forms to assist in improving screening and vetting of government employees to make sure people who could pose a threat are identified before being put in sensitive roles. The official spoke to reporters on the condition of anonymity to detail the internal tools.

Secretary Mayorkas on U.S. Domestic Terror Strategy

He lies like a rug. Just like the the border is closed, now everyone’s rights will be respected.

 

Of course all of this goes down while everyone is focused on what is going on with the latest gaffe of Biden oeverseas.

NSA data will soon routinely be used for domestic policing that has nothing to do with terrorism

What the tin foil hat crowd has been jumping up and down about for years now makes the Washington Post and the light of day. Yes, Virginia, the NSA is spying on you. That great Utah spy center that stores all of our data is real. Now we are all under the eye of Hal. Hal….Hal… let me in……. Read the full Post story. It will chill the marrow of you bones. Here we go:

A while back, we noted a report showing that the “sneak-and-peek” provision of the Patriot Act that was alleged to be used only in national security and terrorism investigations has overwhelmingly been used in narcotics cases. Now the New York Times reports that National Security Agency data will be shared with other intelligence agencies like the FBI without first applying any screens for privacy. The ACLU of Massachusetts blog Privacy SOS explains why this is important:

What does this rule change mean for you? In short, domestic law enforcement officials now have access to huge troves of American communications, obtained without warrants, that they can use to put people in cages. FBI agents don’t need to have any “national security” related reason to plug your name, email address, phone number, or other “selector” into the NSA’s gargantuan data trove. They can simply poke around in your private information in the course of totally routine investigations. And if they find something that suggests, say, involvement in illegal drug activity, they can send that information to local or state police. That means information the NSA collects for purposes of so-called “national security” will be used by police to lock up ordinary Americans for routine crimes. And we don’t have to guess who’s going to suffer this unconstitutional indignity the most brutally. It’ll be Black, Brown, poor, immigrant, Muslim, and dissident Americans: the same people who are always targeted by law enforcement for extra “special” attention.

(Snip)……..

And it certainly isn’t the only time national security apparatus has let law enforcement agencies benefit from policies that are supposed to be reserved for terrorism investigations in order to get around the Fourth Amendment, then instructed those law enforcement agencies to misdirect, fudge and outright lie about how they obtained incriminating information — see the Stingray debacle. This isn’t just a few rogue agents. The lying has been a matter of policy. We’re now learning that the feds had these agreements with police agencies all over thecountry, affecting thousands of cases.

On the one hand, I guess it’s better that this new data-sharing policy is acknowledged in the open instead of carried out surreptitiously. On the other hand, there’s something even more ominous about the fact that they no longer feel as though they need to hide it. More at the Washington Post.

Don’t say we didn’t say so NSA stores metadata on millions of Americans for one year
