Paranoia, OR Deep Concern…

In 1972, a lone junior reporter met with his deep background, anonymous source in a Washington, D.C. garage under the cover of night. “Deep Throat” told Bob Woodward the full extent of the Watergate conspiracy that Woodward and partner Carl Bernstein had overcome seemingly insurmountable odds to reveal. As depicted in All the President’s Men:

The list is longer than anyone can imagine. It involves the entire U.S. intelligence community. FBI. CIA. Justice. … It leads everywhere. Your lives are in danger. … You are under surveillance.

The two reporters, with the support of their editor, and despite widespread apathy among the American public, doggedly built the case that traced the crimes back to the White House, ultimately resulting in the August 9, 1974 resignation of Richard Nixon.

As these reporters’ investigation led them closer and closer, Richard Nixon may well have demanded that Woodward and Bernstein be gagged—in private. But never dared to issue this proclamation in the public arena. Had he given such a directive, the move to impeach may well have come much sooner.

Yet, in 2013, a former senior NSA official, using his own name, on camera, with two of his associates corroborating his account in full, and with his lawyer present, declares on the record to one of America’s major news outlets, USA Today:

The government unchained itself from the Constitution as a result of 9/11. And in the absolute darkest of secrecy, at the highest levels of the government, approved by the White House, NSA became the executive agent for a surveillance program that turned the United States of America effectively into the equivalent of a foreign nation for dragnet electronic surveillance.

Deep Throat was not the story in 1972, and Edward Snowden is not the story today. The abuse of America’s intelligence agencies is.  (The Independent institute)

Would you be shocked to learn that the FBI apparently knew that some organization, perhaps even a law enforcement agency or private security outfit, had contingency plans to assassinate peaceful protesters in a major American city — and did nothing to intervene?

Would you be surprised to learn that this intelligence comes not from a shadowy whistle-blower but from the FBI itself – specifically, from a document obtained from Houston FBI office last December, as part of a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request filed by the Washington, DC-based Partnership for Civil Justice Fund?

To repeat: this comes from the FBI itself. The question, then, is: What did the FBI do about it?  (Blacklisted News)

The question becomes:  This stuff is in the dark, uncleaned, cluttered corners of the Internet.  Is it true, or just paranoia?

Just because you’re paranoid doesn’t mean people aren’t out to get you…

Paranoia or Deep Concern.  Your choice.

PS – You may note the absence of a post celebrating the 237th Anniversary of American Independence.  This is the 82nd blog post I’ve made regarding the AGENDA against American Constitutional -Supported Freedoms.
I don’t feel we should celebrate – we should mourn.

  1. Michelle Malkin, among others, says, “Sunshine is the best disinfectant”. None of these problems will be resolved overnight. Maybe they never will. All we can do is keep trying. In 1776, the British Army seemed invincible.

  2. Secret spying with a secret ‘warrant’ issued by a secret ‘court’ with secret oversight in secret meetings with select congresscritters. (are they compromised? Secret!!) What could possibly go wrong?

    Weren’t we raised, as children of the ’50s, that only Red Pinko Commie A-holes and despots did this shit?

  3. This stuff seemed unthinkable just 12 years ago. I railed against the Patriot Act to my friends & family, in that day, and said the DHS was the stuff of nightmares. Turns out I was an optimist. Who knew?
