Rep. Stockman requests NSA logs for phone traffic between White House, IRS
Post Date: 2013-06-16 19:03:22 by A K A Stone
Weve been told by Administration apologists that we shouldnt have anything to fear from enhanced phone and online surveillance, if we have nothing to hide. (The authors of the Fourth Amendment certainly didnt feel that way, did they?) Rep. Steve Stockman (R-TX) brilliantly turned this line of thinking against the White House, by asking the House Oversight committee to subpoena the National Security Agencys phone call metadata for communication between the White House and IRS: Stockmans office hand delivered a letter Tuesday afternoon to the Committees office requesting a subpoena of all records of every phone call made from all public and private ...

Post Date: 2013-06-14 19:13:11 by A K A Stone
After a leaked FISA court document revealed that the National Security Agency (NSA) is vacuuming up private data on millions of innocent Americans by collecting all the phone records of Verizon customers, President Obama responded by saying "let's have a debate" about the scope of US surveillance powers. At EFF, we couldn't agree more. It turns out, President Obama's most formative debate partner over the invasiveness of NSA domestic surveillance could his Vice President Joe Biden. Back in 2006, when the NSA surveillance program was first revealed by the New York Times, then-Senator Biden was one of the program's most articulate critics. As the FISA court order ...

Post Date: 2013-06-13 13:31:55 by sneakypete
WASHINGTON -- For the first time, America's racial and ethnic minorities now make up about half of the under-5 age group, the government said Thursday. It's a historic shift that shows how young people are at the forefront of sweeping changes by race and class. The new census estimates, a snapshot of the U.S. population as of July 2012, comes a year after the Census Bureau reported that whites had fallen to a minority among babies. Fueled by immigration and high rates of birth, particularly among Hispanics, racial and ethnic minorities are now growing more rapidly in numbers than whites. Based on current rates of growth, whites in the under-5 group are expected to tip to a ...

Post Date: 2013-06-13 02:11:07 by A K A Stone
(Reuters) - U.S. government investigators began an urgent search for Edward Snowden several days before the first media reports were published on the government's secret surveillance programs, people familiar with the matter said on Wednesday. Snowden, who has admitted to providing details of the top-secret programs, had worked on assignment at a Hawaii facility run by the National Security Agency for about four weeks before he said he was ill and requested leave without pay, according to the sources who spoke on condition of anonymity. When Snowden failed to return, that prompted a hunt for the contractor, first by his employer Booz Allen Hamilton and then by the U.S. government, ...

27 Edward Snowden Quotes About U.S. Government Spying That Should Send A Chill Up Your Spine
Post Date: 2013-06-12 00:54:34 by A K A Stone
Would you be willing to give up what Edward Snowden has given up? He has given up his high paying job, his home, his girlfriend, his family, his future and his freedom just to expose the monolithic spy machinery that the U.S. government has been secretly building to the world. He says that he does not want to live in a world where there isn't any privacy. He says that he does not want to live in a world where everything that he says and does is recorded. Thanks to Snowden, we now know that the U.S. government has been spying on us to a degree that most people would have never even dared to imagine. Up until now, the general public has known very little about the U.S. government spy grid ...

National Security Agency Director Gen. Keith Alexander Photo by Chip Somodevilla/Getty Images Edward Snowden sounds like a thoughtful, patriotic young man, and Im sure glad he blew the whistle on the NSAs surveillance programs. But the more I learned about him this afternoon, the angrier I became. Wait, him? The NSA trusted its most sensitive documents to this guy? And now, after it has just proven itself so inept at handling its own information, the agency still wants us to believe that it can securely hold on to all of our data? Oy vey! According to the Guardian, Snowden is a 29-year-old high school dropout who trained for the Army Special Forces before an injury forced him ...

FACEBOOK denies involvement: "Facebook is not and has never been part of any program to give the US or any other government direct access to our servers. We have never received a blanket request or court order from any government agency asking for information or metadata in bulk, like the one Verizon reportedly received. And if we did, we would fight it aggressively. We hadn’t even heard of PRISM before yesterday."
GOOGLE denies involvement: "First, we have not joined any program that would give the U.S. government—or any other government—direct access to our servers. Indeed, the U.S. government does not have direct access or a “back door” to the information stored in our data centers. ...

Rand Paul called the revelation of the not-so-new, congressionally-approved collection of phone records of Verizon customers by the National Security Agency "an astounding assault on the Constitution," Sen.

Post Date: 2013-06-06 18:10:08 by Brian S
Thursday, June 6, 5:43 PM The National Security Agency and the FBI are tapping directly into the central servers of nine leading U.S. Internet companies, extracting audio, video, photographs, e-mails, documents and connection logs that enable analysts to track a persons movements and contacts over time.

Its establishment in 2007 and six years of exponential growth took place beneath the surface of a roiling debate over the boundaries of surveillance and privacy. Even late last year, when critics of the foreign intelligence statute argued for changes, the only members of Congress who know about ...

MIAMI (AP) -- The first named storm of the Atlantic season pelted Florida's Gulf Coast with rain and wind Thursday as it edged toward the coast of Georgia and the Carolinas, promising sloppy commutes and waterlogged vacation getaways.

A Brand New Report Shows Just How Wrong Silicon Valley Is About A Tech Worker Shortage
Post Date: 2013-06-04 23:36:11 by A K A Stone
A popular meme of the immigration debate has to do with the claim from technology companies that there's a Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) worker shortage in the United States. This is frequently used to bolster the argument that the U.S. should increase the number of temporary visas issued to foreign-born workers in order to fulfill demand in the tech industry for techie talent. A new report from the esteemed Georgetown Center on Education and the Workforce presents a pretty significant rebuttal to that claim. Released on Wednesday, the annual report looks at how new college graduates are faring in the recession-era economy. That it's titled "Hard ...
