This iReport is part of an assignment:
CIA ADMITS TO SPYING ON SENATE STAFFERS...
Another Immaculate Deception!
A National Disgrace that We Better Address NOW or ELSE!
WAKE Up AMERICANS!
Check it out— According to an article published by the Guardian:
“CIA admits to spying on Senate staffers!”
CIA director apologises for improper conduct of agency staff
One senator calls on John Brennan to resign in wake of scandal
“I have no choice but to call for the resignation of CIA director John Brennan,” Mark Udall said after a briefing on the inspector general’s findings.
“The CIA unconstitutionally spied on Congress by hacking into Senate intelligence committee computers. This grave misconduct is not only illegal, but it violates the US constitution’s requirement of separation of powers. These offenses, along with other errors in judgment by some at the CIA, demonstrate a tremendous failure of leadership, and there must be consequences.”
Below is a transcript from my book Surprise:
What about the CIA – operating in the shadows with impunity? Is our government getting ready to exercises rigid and repressive controls over our social, economic, and political lives in the name of National Security? In 1933 Germany amended it constitution with the ‘Enabling Act;’ which played a critical role in the rise of Adolf Hitler to become the dictator and Fuhrer of Nazi Germany by August, 1934.
Are we enabling our own Demise of America as we knew it? Is there an American Gestapo? How about a THOUGHT Police?
According to an article published on March 6, 2014 by the Wall Street Daily, the U.S. Government is not only spying on We the People, it is also spying on itself. “More specifically, the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) has been monitoring the computers used by Congress’ Senate Intelligence Committee. (Not coincidentally, that’s the same Senate group responsible for overseeing the CIA’s actions.)”
Imagine that! Does the CIA have something to hide? Damage Control?
Alas, “If it turns out that the CIA was spying on the Senate committee that oversees the agency, it would be an outrageous violation of separation of powers. The CIA is prohibited from spying in the United States itself, and there can be few greater violations of that rule than spying on congressional staff carrying out the constitutional duty of being a check on the CIA’s powers. CIA surveillance of Congress would be another sign that the intelligence community has come to believe that they’re above the law and should get only deference from the other branches of government, not the meaningful oversight that’s required by the Constitution.” – Christopher Anders (Senior legislative counsel with the American Civil Liberties Union.)

Do we have an Enabling Act of our own here at home in the USA? Believe it or not, we have something just as scary. On December 31, 2011, President Barack Obama signed into law the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA); “for the defense of the United States and its interests abroad.” Amongst the many Powers that it has been granted to deal with and address conflict in the Name of National Security, is a controversial provisions entitled “Counter-Terrorism”.
Counter-terrorism authorizes the indefinite military detention of persons the government SUSPECTS of involvement in terrorism, including U.S. citizens arrested on American soil. Although the White House and Senate sponsors maintain that the Authorization for Use of Military Force (AUMF) already grants presidential authority for indefinite detention, the Act states that Congress “affirms” this authority and makes specific provisions as to the exercise of that authority.What about the two Boston Bombing Suspects? People’s houses we searched without their permission?
How dare we question authority in the Name of National Security as Congress “affirms” this Unconstitutional, indefinite military detention of US citizens based on Suspicion? Whistle blowers, rebel rousers — Beware! The SHADOW KNOWS! Gitmo? It reminds me of the East German Ministry for State Security (MfS), commonly known as the Stasi.Stasi has been described as one of the most effective and repressive intelligence and secret police agencies in the world. The Stasi motto was “Schild und Schwert der Partei” (Shield and Sword of the Party). Incidentally, the detention provisions of the Act have received critical attention by both the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) and the Bill of Rights Defense Committee.
What about the ‘War Powers Act’? In March of 2012 at a Senate Armed Services Committee hearing, Defense Secretary Leon Panetta and Joint Chiefs of Staff Chairman Gen. Martin Dempsey brazenly admitted that their authority comes not from the U.S. Constitution, but that the United States is subservient to and takes its marching orders from the United Nations Security Council and NATO, when it comes to taking military action.
They don’t give a damn about the War Powers Act? They can invade whomever they chose without consulting or getting permission from Congress just like they did when President Obama ordered the USA to invade Libya; which was against the US Rule of Law. I guess the world is now ruled under International Law in the Name of the New World Order? What happened to the ‘Supreme Law of the Land’? Destination — the Rule of Unconstitutional Law?
Is the USA turning into a Police State? Are there spies amongst us? Are we being set up, labeled, organized into categories and casted with Suspicion? Unfortunately, the agenda is on a need to know basis. Far too people are now considered Guilty; Until Proven Innocent? Ironically, the situation is getting worse and worse little by little especially since the Supreme Court decided in June, 2013 that Police can takeyour DNA upon arrest?
Justice Antonin Scalia was appalled as he argued that the case paves the way for increased DNA testing, which he claimed violates the Constitution’s protection against unreasonable searches.
“Make no mistake about it: because of today’s decision, your DNA can be taken and entered into a national database if you are ever arrested, rightly or wrongly, and for whatever reason,” Scalia wrote. “This will solve some extra crimes, to be sure. But so would taking your DNA whenever you fly on an airplane.”
Incidentally, the Federal Government has funded checkpoint surveys— to stop US citizens and draw their blood for cash in cities all across America. Some citizens are even secretly tested if they refuse to cooperate, by a breath analyzer— which operates while they are talking to the police. The results go to some federal contractors, who are working to complete a 3 year, $7.9M USD survey on behalf of the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA). They are allegedly collecting medical data to be used in combatting drunk driving. According to one lawyer, the search constituted an unconstitutional search and seizure.
