  • Big Sis To Resign From Department Of Homeland Insecurity July 12, 2013 Janet Napolitano, also know as Big Sis, will resign as boss of the Department of Homeland Security. She will seek the post as president of the University of California, according to media reports. Napolitano’s departure is scheduled for September. “For more than four years I have had the privilege of serving President Obama and his Administration as the Secretary of Homeland Security,” she said in a statement. “The opportunity to work with the dedicated men and women of the Department of Homeland Security, who serve on the frontlines of our nation’s efforts to protect our communities and families from harm, has been the highlight of my professional career. We have worked together to minimize threats of all kinds to the American public.” She said “I know the Department of Homeland Security will continue to perform its important duties with the honor and focus that the American public expects.” Obama issued a statement commending Napolitano for “her outstanding work on behalf of the American people over the last four years.” “At the Department of Homeland Security, Janet’s portfolio has included some of the toughest challenges facing our country. She’s worked around the clock to respond to natural disasters, from the Joplin tornado to Hurricane Sandy, helping Americans recover and rebuild,” he said. Obama also said the American people “are safer and more secure thanks to Janet’s leadership in protecting our homeland against terrorist attacks.” During her tenure, the TSA accelerated its effort to intimidate passengers in airports and train and bus stations with intrusive body searches, thus increasing the footprint and visibility of the post-9/11 police state. Napolitano also oversaw the “see something, say something” campaign that resembles the worst of Stasi East Germany and its pervasive police state. Napolitano also pushed public-private partnerships, an effort compared to similar initiatives promoted by fascist leader Benito Mussolini. Most notably, the DHS engaged in an effort with megastore Walmart. The agency ran “public service” announcements in stores across American urging customers to turn suspected terrorists into store managers.

  • Microsoft Instrumental in NSA’s Prism Program Kurt Nimmo July 12, 2013 Software giant Microsoft worked closely with the National Security Agency in its effort to surveil the American public, according to The Guardian. The British newspaper cites documents provided by on-the-run whistleblower Edward Snowden. In particular, the technology company permitted the NSA to skirt the encryption used on its email service. It also made it easier for the agency to surveil its cloud system, SkyDrive, and Skype video, a recent Microsoft acquisition. SkyDrive has approximately 250 million users worldwide. Data captured by the NSA was routinely passed on to the FBI and the CIA, according to the report. “Prism is a team sport!” is how one NSA document described the relationship between intelligence agencies and corporations. In April, Microsoft launched a public relations campaign claiming it protects customer data. “Your privacy is our priority” is the campaign’s tagline. Microsoft and other technology companies were quick to deny roles in NSA surveillance after Snowden made his revelations public beginning in June of this year. “All the major tech firms are lobbying the government to allow them to disclose more fully the extent and nature of their co-operation with the NSA to meet their customers privacy concerns,” Glenn Greenwald writes. “Privately, tech executives are at pains to distance themselves from claims of collaboration and teamwork given by the NSA documents, and insist the process is driven by legal compulsion.” Earlier today, we reported on Microsoft’s intimate relationship with the NSA and the military- intelligence complex. Greenwald’s latest report underscores the fact transnational technology corporations are indispensable to the government’s surveillance of the American people. In short, when you use products produced by these corporations you are consenting to the act of being surveilled.

  • Bank To Spy On Customers Via Cellphone Location Tracking Paul Joseph Watson July 12, 2013 It’s not just the government watching you It’s not just governments that are using cellphone location data to spy on citizens – banks are now getting in on the act too – with Barclays announcing changes to its customer agreement that will open the door to individuals being tracked in the name of preventing fraud. Barclays’ new customer agreement terms (PDF) – set to come into force from October 9, 2013, will also permit the bank to collect social networking data as well as using private transaction information to bombard customers with unsolicited “services and products”. “The information we use will include location data derived from any mobile device details you have given us. This helps us protect you from fraud,” states the document. This suggests that phone companies in Britain must have given Barclays some kind of back door access to people’s private cellphones in order to track their precise location, whether in real time or after potential fraud has been reported. All modern cellphones can be tracked down a location which is accurate within 50 meters. Police, governments and corporations already use such data to spy on individuals for both surveillance and data harvesting. The changes also state that Barclays will track the behavior of its customers via social media. The bank will also retain “images of you or recordings of your voice” in addition to monitoring “transactions on your account, to increase our understanding of services and products that you may wish to use so we can send you information about them.” Read the full list of changes below.
