Company tied to Obama Foundation spying on Americans’ online activity – for the government?

This is chilling. We have seen over the past several months the Biden administration putting out continuous dog whistles about “white supremacy,” going so far as to claim that “domestic white extremism” is the biggest threat to our country since…well since forever.

Newly discovered information however shows to what extent the administration and the Pentagon are going in trying to “root out” alleged extremism.

 According to numerous sources including Fox News, the Pentagon is apparently working with a company, Moonshot CVE which has ties to—surprise, surprise—the Obama Foundation—is currently working on data which would provide military leaders which military bases and branches have the most troops searching for so-called “domestic extremist” content.

So what does Moonshot consider to be a “search for domestic extremist content?” How about if you put the following into your web browser: “The truth about Black Lives Matter.”

According to Moonshot, that along with a number of other seemingly innocent searches shows signs of either interest in or engagement with white supremacism, according to Defense One.

In June, Moonshot released a report in collaboration with the far-left Anti-Defamation League in which they identified so-called “white supremacy trends in the United States.”

Moonshot, based in the U.K. noted it “monitored a list of almost 1,600 indicators of interest in or engagement with white supremacism, focused specifically on anti-black and anti-Semitic narratives used by extremist groups.

Other “problematic” search phrases included “George Floyd deserved to die,” “Jews will not replace us” and “the truth about black lives matter.”

The latter in particular got the attention of Moonshot, which noted that: “This search suggests that the BLM movement has nefarious motives and is a disinformation narrative perpetuated by white supremacist groups to weaponize anti-BLM sentiment.”

It would seem the fact that the founders of BLM, who are admitted Marxists might draw the attention of people who care about the country, especially given the fact that politicians and businesses have allowed themselves to be shaken down by BLM.

Moreover, questions about the organization’s finances are fair game, especially since one of the founders, Patrisse Cullors has managed to acquire for herself a tidy little real estate portfolio.

Facebook employees were caught spying on users

In a story that shows just how much detail Facebook has on the lives of its users, a new report says that Facebook fired 52 employees who were involved in obtaining location data of women they were romantically interested in.

Male programmers were able to view women’s whereabouts, personal messages, deleted photographs, and more because of their access to user data through Facebook’s internal systems.

This story follows an engineer who was on vacation with a woman in Europe. After a fight, the woman left the room they were sharing. The Facebook developer then used the location information he had access to locate her down at a hotel nearby.

In another case, following their date, a woman stopped replying to a Facebook engineer’s messages. He then surreptitiously spied on her using the position. He had exposure to years of private Facebook messages with contacts, events attended, photos shared, and postings she had remarked about or clicked on. He could also track her real-time location because she has Facebook installed.

In September 2015, Facebook’s top security officer, Alex Stamos, apparently informed Mark Zuckerberg about the situation.

According to Stamos, Facebook staff spied on individuals “almost every month.” At the time, over 16,000 workers had access to confidential user data. Stamos made many suggestions, including limiting access and forcing workers to submit formal requests for data access.

Postal Censorship and Surveillance: A Timeline

1775

A year before independence, the Continental Congress creates the Postal Service—not as a government agency, but as one of several new independent alternatives to the British postal system. One advantage: This allows American dissidents to communicate without the authorities intercepting their letters.

1835

Southern mobs seize and burn abolitionist material sent through the mail. The postmaster general refuses to intervene, establishing a de facto policy of permitting the censorship of such literature in the slave states.

1844

The libertarian abolitionist Lysander Spooner establishes the private American Letter Mail Co. The government reacts by outlawing it, and in 1851 the experiment ends.

1861

The Civil War begins, and both the Union and the Confederacy adopt their own forms of postal censorship. The postmaster general spends a year refusing to deliver papers deemed disloyal to the Union cause.

1873

The Comstock Act makes it illegal to knowingly mail or receive any “filthy book, pamphlet, picture, paper, letter, writing, print, or other publication of an indecent character,” as well as any contraceptives, any abortifacients, or any information about acquiring or using contraceptives or abortifacients.

1878

The Supreme Court upholds the government’s right to bar “circulars concerning lotteries” from the mail—and, provided it has a warrant, to open and inspect packages to find such material.

1887

Police arrest the libertarian journalists Moses Harman, Edwin C. Walker, and George Harman for publishing and mailing a feminist argument against marital rape. The author’s description of such an assault is deemed obscene under the Comstock Act.

1917

After the U.S. enters World War I, the Wilson administration cracks down on anti-war and anti-draft literature. In the case of the anarchist magazine Mother Earth, the government doesn’t just bar the material from the mail—it arrests editor Emma Goldman for “conspiracy to induce persons not to register” for the draft, imprisons her, and eventually deports her.

1944

The government intercepts the international correspondence of tax resister Vivien Kellems—a prominent critic of the Roosevelt administration—and leaks it to columnist Drew Pearson and Rep. John M. Coffee (D–Wash.). Coffee quotes from it on the House floor while accusing Kellems of subversion.

1953

The CIA starts reading correspondence between people in the U.S. and the Soviet Union. The covert program quickly extends to a much larger watchlist, with the agency illegally opening more than 13,000 letters a year until the operation ends in 1973.

1970

As part of its campaign against the underground press, the FBI considers a scheme to spray copies of The Black Panther with a chemical called Skatole before the issues are shipped to distributors, thus giving them “a most offensive odor.” The bureau drops that particular plan but finds other ways to harass alternative papers using the mails.

2001

In the wake of the post-9/11 anthrax attacks, the government creates the Mail Isolation Control and Tracking system to collect the information on the exterior of virtually everything mailed in the United States. One cybersecurity specialist later sums up the program for The New York Times: “Let’s record everyone’s mail so in the future we might go back and see who you were communicating with.”

Capitol Police Will Use Military Surveillance Equipment on Citizens to “Identify Emerging Threats”

Biden’s authoritarian regime is expanding its power at an alarming rate in the aftermath of the January 6th protest.

Last week, after Nancy Pelosi announced that they would be opening ‘state-police’ offices in key regions across the country, the Capitol Hill Police are now being reclassified as “an intelligence-based protective agency.” They will be given access to high-powered US military surveillance equipment that is traditionally used to monitor enemy forces in war zones.

On July 2nd, Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin granted the use of 8 ‘Persistent Surveillance Systems Ground – Medium (PSSG-M) units’ to the federal police force. The equipment will be added to the current security infrastructure and be used to help assist “steady-state” missions and monitor US civilian actions to “identify emerging threats.”

The technology was frequently used in Afghanistan and Iraq to gather intelligence on enemies in hostile regions. Now it is being used to spy on and create intelligence profiles of American citizens.

The army will install the units and train USCP officers on how to use them.

Judicial Watch files open records request asking USPS to disclose social media monitoring documents

Judicial Watch Announced Monday that it filed an open records request against the United States Postal Service, asking the organization to produce documents on its alleged tracking of social media posts regarding protests.

The conservative judicial watchdog group originally filed the suit on April 28 through a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request. The group asked for all documents related to the tracking and collecting of Americans’ social media posts through its Internet Covert Operations Program, according to The Epoch Times.

The FOIA is specifically looking for communication records between the USPS and the Federal Bureau of Investigation or the Department of Homeland Security from Jan.1, 2020. 

“Did the Biden administration weaponize the United States Postal Service to improperly spy on Americans?” Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton asked in a statement Monday.

NSA Reveals in FOIA Response that the FBI Involved in “Improper Surveillance” of 16,000 Americans

Then on January 6, after one million Trump supporters rallied with President Trump at the Ellipse outside the White House, some 900 individuals went inside the US Capitol. Over 400 have since been arrested, including those who were waved into the US Capitol by the police standing at the exits.

Since January, the Deep State and Democrats will not release videotapes to Republican lawmakers from January 6th inside or outside the US Capitol.

Earlier this week Revolver News published an important piece on the “unindicted co-conspirators” in the Jan. 6 attack who were never charged by the DOJ or FBI for their part in the violence on Jan. 6.

The “unindicted co-conspirators” were frequently the most violent and leaders of the assault on the US Capitol. They are also likely FBI informants.
