How the Government Tracks You: NSA Surveillance

  • Published on Oct 16, 2013
  • Don't just watch it, DO SOMETHING:
    The U.S. Government has turned the Internet into something it was never intended to be: a system for spying on us in our most private moments. Out of control government surveillance is a dangerous form of censorship. Don't be intimidated. Share this video.

    The funny thing is that the government is indirectly using alternative media to distribute information we "aren't supposed to see" in order to keep us immobilized by fear and that is exactly why we all should start living so free that our very existence is considered an act of rebellion.

    I wonder, who is the criminal now.... And I would wonder, if it's in the name of justice again that this is happening. Is this the lesser evil for the greater good or, doing the greater evil (nsa, the government) against the lesser evil disregarding collateral damage? I wonder so many things but most of all, I wonder if they see anyone as people anymore or do they see themselves greater?

    It is safe to assume everything you do is being monitored and survellianced. In fact, by attempting to hide yourself, only makes you a bigger target for survelliance.

    Here's some stuff that they may be hiding.
    1. There are extinct species where some animals might still be alive
    2. There is a research base that is 7 stories where they are working WITH aliens in scientific research
    3. They have stealth technology they use on their clothing when spying on enemy areas.
    4. They have planes that can go up to mock 12.
    5. They have cures for some biomedical diseases and might be hiding them to make money with conventional medications and drugs.
    They have technology that is up to 200 years ahead of civilian technology, similar to that on star trek.

    This is the basic personality types who work for the NSA:
    1) Washed up war hawks who have nothing better to do since Desert Storm but commit treason against the US people on a daily basis through cyber and domestic terrorist-style surveillance warfare (using our own tax money of course)
    2) Military crew-cut police-bully archetypes who want to feel power over people but instead end up spending entire workdays listening to soccer mom grocery lists and intensely heated debates among 40 year old men about whether Superman or Batman would win in a no-holds barred fight.
    3) Perverts who wanna slap their meat to middle aged women pooping in the comfort of their own homes.
    4) Genuinely concerned people for the safety of American people who instantly realize the treason they're committing on a daily basis and quit within a month or two.
    I don't even get how they can get people to do this kind of treasonous shit against the people (with our own tax money). That's one of the reasons I'm leaving this dumbass country. Also the random police shootings of people in their own homes. Soon enough they'll be working together to arrest you for talking bad about the new world order in front of your Xbox camera.

    The more laws we have, the more chance you will at some time, become a criminal for the slightest infraction.
    Controlling the masses feeds the profits for Private Prisons, Tyranny, and Corruption.
    How is it that almost every politician that goes to Washington D.C. with a middle-class income, retires in 8 years as multi-millionaires for being public servants with a salary of $100K per year?

    One solution to stop this tyrannical intrusion is, turn the tables on the Crooked Cops, Crooked Judges, Govt. Spies, Govt. Agents, and Politicians.
    Publish their personal information on the internet, like home addresses, personal phone numbers, family members, where the kids go to school, their personal web surfing habits, etc., etc......

    If most of you all worked for the NSA, you would be surveilling people you believed were suspicious too - and within an hour you'd forget what the hell the 3rd and 4th Amendment said. I hear a lot of people complain that NSA workers would track your websites and see what porn sites you visit as if these NSA workers don't probably have a stash of porn waiting for them when they get off work and get back to their apartments. In other words, the goofy sites you visit probably don't faze them one bit after two days of them working there. But if they seriously go after these crazy extremists who sympathize with groups like al-Qaeda or Daesh (ISIS), have at it.

    the NSA is not using their surveillance network to uncover terrorist, but it is now use to spy and secretly monitor attractive women not only in America but around the world, especially women who make their living in the legal adult entertaiment industry. Half of the stalking & the lingerie,panty theft that goes on in major cities are done by NSA male personals.They use the NSA video monitoring system to peep on unsuspecting females to create their own personal porn collection. THe surveillance technology that is use by the NSA male personals is not use for national security but for their own personal pleasure to collect naked images of women around the globe.

  • king pedro barcelona-gano

    how could 911 be an inside job if the planes came from the outside, jk but fr, my Google pixle scares me, I transferred my data from my old phone to it and even the pictures I made sure to delete on Google pictures on my Samsung came back new but thats nothing, the Siri scares tf out of me, every time I ask it something about the NSA and Google working together to spy on people and all the sites that come up only talk about how to be a hacker that spies on google, it always listens to you at all times, if you look at the phone it will turn on so it's recording me when I don't give it permission, I can't take the battery out and I'm pretty sure that the reason why Androids started doing this is because the NSA told them to, and Google at anytime can put anything on my phone to make me look like a monster and everyone will overlook my argument and call me a paranoid monater, this thing probably sells you pringerprint to the NSA, my dad is a lawyer so if he just talking about hes case with me, google can hear it all and sell it to the state and advice the prosecutor on how to go against my dad, really sad that nobody cares about this, I told someone about this today and he told me wait that really hallena, can somebody make a phone like Apple or Samsung that looks nice and works well that haves like lil thingies that are like Windows for your camera and it also haves a 100% sound proof window shutter thingie that only unlock by itself when you have a call that is super encrypted to the point that it is hacker proof and government proof, and even better, every time the government unsuccessfully tries to spy on you, well it gives them a virus that destroys there computers, I know that this product seems impossible but the only reason why that it seems like that is because companies aren't competing on making the best government proof phones and if they did, we would have this in 3 years tops, and when people give me shit like terrorist and all that as an excuse, it just makes me mad, if I'm being totally honest I'd rather have school shootings every day than my privacy being taken non existent and being able to be used against me with ease and I don't mean like me being a criminal I mean that they can make me the criminal easily right now just by putting a couple things on my phone , and tbh terrorism isnt the big problem the media says it is, is it uncontrolled, well yes but not here and it's over there and that's there problem to solve not ours and the people that live there didn't ask for help that actually makes the whole thing worse, bad shit has happened across all history and I know you are thinking about 70s 80s 90s but those times were worse than now in soooo many aspects, crime has gone down a fuck toon but you don't know that, and a lot of other shit is ten times better now and I don't know about it because the media and everyone else is so obsessed with talking about how terrible it is right now, we don't need surveillance to be good and who knows the government probably did murder almost 3000 which isn't that much to be able to do what they are doing and if I was I can't blame them, pretty smart, have a small sacrifice to be able to control your people so they can never ever over through you, but thats there point of view and mine isn't like that, I'm pretty sure they didn't do 9/11 but if they did I wouldn't be surprised, well I would but I could easily understand why they did it, it just discusses me to see people be so proud of this country and they should be proud of the idea that America is but they should despise what it is and what it's heading towards, we already there it's just getting worse

    oh mercy. How many of you have been locked up in jail because the NSA did a scan on your phone to see if you texted "bomb" or some other key word? Well, I have a secret for you. If you want to stop NASA spying on you there is a way to stop it. Just go to the command prompt by typing in "CMD" in your windows search. When the prompt comes up type "Format C". When it comes back and says "are you sure this will delete all the data on your drive" don't believe those evil Freemason, Illuminati, Jesuit NSA assholes. Type "Y" and defy those bastards. This is a big secret so don't tell anybody about this trick, but it will rid you permanently of NSA spying. Seriously.

    What people might not understand is that NSA spying actually would prevent a HUGE amount of terrorist threats to America if the FBI wasn't so lenient when it comes to taking action. There's a reason why the FBI had plenty of information on the guy who recently bombed New York but didn't do anything about it for years.
