Authorities Are USING Paris Attacks To Rush New Mass Surveillance Laws

from Vigilant Citizen:

The CIA and government officials around the world are using the Paris attacks to push brand new surveillance laws. And it was all planned in advance.

While democratic systems usually take months (if not years) to pass new laws and legislation, it only took a few days after the Paris attacks to slap honest citizens with more surveillance laws. Several organizations are indeed capitalizing on the fear and panic caused by the attacks to bring forth a brand new agenda that takes a bold new step towards total government surveillance. What’s worse: Leaked information proves that authorities were waiting on a terror attack to go forward with their plan.

In a leaked e-mail written by Robert S. Litt, the intelligence community’s top lawyer during the month August, the plan is clearly outlined: There is a lack of support for the banning of encrypted communications but a terror attack could quickly turn the tide.

“Although the legislative environment is very hostile today, it could turn in the event of a terrorist attack or criminal event where strong encryption can be shown to have hindered law enforcement.

There is value keeping our options open for such a situation.”
– Washington Post, Obama faces growing momentum to support widespread encryption

Only a few months after this e-mail, a terror attack occurs in Paris. Only a few hours after the attacks, news  strangely blamed “encrypted communications”. Only days after the attacks, officials are calling for…the banning of encrypted communications.

The New York police commissioner, Bill Bratton, called it a “game changer” and, insinuated new legislation that would outlaw encryption was necessary by adding: “[Encryption] is something that is going to need to be debated very quickly because we cannot continue operating where we are blind.
– The Guardian, Intelligence agencies pounce on Paris attacks to pursue spy agenda

CIA Director John Brennan is also using the terror attacks to plead for unrestricted government surveillance of all communications, blaming “privacy groups” for hindering their job.

Then on Monday, in an epic episode of blame shifting, the CIA director, John Brennan, reportedly said privacy advocates have undermined the ability of spies to monitor terrorists. He explained:

“Because of a number of unauthorized disclosures and a lot of hand-wringing over the government’s role in the effort to try to uncover these terrorists, there have been some policy and legal and other actions that are taken that make our ability collectively, internationally to find these terrorists much more challenging”, adding that there is a “misrepresentation of what the intelligence security services are doing”.

Read Brennan’s comments carefully because they are very revealing. When he says “legal actions”, he’s referring to the fact that multiplefederal courts have ruled that the government’s secret mass surveillance on millions of Americans is illegal. So it sounds like the CIA director issaying it’s a shame that intelligence agencies can’t operate completely above the law any more, and is scapegoating any failings on his agency’s part on accountability that is the hallmark of any democracy. (Though he still can apparently operate above the law.)

More importantly, Brennan’s comments are incredibly dishonest. The post-Snowden USA Freedom Act passed by Congress reformed exactly one of the countless mass spying programs the US runs. It was the one that sucked up the phone calls of Americans only, and here’s the thing: it has been active this whole time and isn’t scheduled to shut down until the end of the month.

Government officials in the UK are also capitalizing on fear to rush sweeping new laws.

    and for doing such a great job as our very first Homeland Enslavement Czar,Michael Chertoff and Co. ,will get all the new surveillance equipment contracts..[ must assume Chertoff isn’t selling many airport naked image machines to homeland security any longer ]
    did you say “selling them machines to “homeland security”? “yes i did,and can you say: “CONFLICT OF INTEREST”? sure ya can..
    rule #1 – always make money[juice Fed debt currency from thin air actually] whilst further enslaving the dirty,filthy goyim..and #2
    ALWAYS kill 3 or 4 or 5 [or even 6+ like 9-11] filthy,dirty goyim birds with one Jewish stone..

    Their pre-planned problem, Our immediate shocked reaction demanding help, Their pre-planned solution.

    It’s as old an well circulated story really but, the scared and ignorant are blinded to it every time…

      The Hegelian dialectic…

      In Europe, people used to learn philosophy in the last two years of “high school”. Kant, Hegel and many others. They used to learn to question everything. There’s a reason it no longer is the case…

        Hey Christine, I have a question for you. I need a Woman’s perspective. Obviously most of the people are still sheep, and talking about any of these types of subjects with them is pretty much impossible. I was just reflecting how most young boys/men are into sports/video games and most young girls/women are more into music/concerts/hollywood.

        They have really done a number on all of us convincing us that stupid things are important and important things are nothing to think about. If you know what I mean.

        So my question is…Did Cyndi Lauper really nail it when she said that “Girls, just wanna have fun. That’s all they really want. Is some fun. When the working day is done, girls just want to have fun.”

        Obviously it would seem that those that are still asleep, most women I meet or talk to just want to have fun and not think. And most men would rather party than think.

        I don’t bother trying to tell them these things anymore. I just wait for my turn to speak and drop a seed of truth where appropriate. But I’m just wondering, is that all girls really want, is to have fun? 🙂

    Eric is going to hate me…

    It’s so different there. First of all, Cindy Lauper is… nobody! Some American computerized voice.

    For a great number of my (female) compatriots, regardless of age, shopping is a punishment. Not “fun”. We shop because we already know what we need (need. Not just “want”. Different means.) We see it in our mind and we want what we envision. Frustration sets in when we can’t find it after a couple of hours and we have to settle for something we quite didn’t like but will fill the need. So, no fun there. Then, there is no such thing as “girls” doing their thing and “boys” doing theirs. Average soccer game: 90 minutes. Girls accommodate. Average football game: 3:12 minutes. Unbearable!

    Life in pretty much all of Europe (except UK) is not about owning the best and flashing it but about enjoying. And enjoying means food. A 3 or 4 hour-long shared meal, where you remake the world. That’s fun. Going out means… good food first. Computers and electronics play their part. They DO NOT replace social life and especially a meal around which the world is being analyzed and… remade.

    What’s going on right now is completely against nature but very understandable: there is a push to turn the French into a fearful people no longer able to enjoy life and willing to follow Washington. Charlie Hebdo, 11/13, just as the French move (as a people) closer to Russia and farther away from Washington and puppet Hollande (who’s origins everybody figured out the minute they heard his name: no one has the name of a country unless… Jewish).

    Cindy Lauper, huh? Girls wanna have fun? They do. They hook with a guy. He has no qualms saying he has an STD. They choose between risk and pleasure, together. Not Cindy Lauper’s fun. Responsible, adult fun. In Germany or Sweden or Italy or Spain. Just the same. Much more oriented toward politics and the future and so much less into… what again? Self-centeredness and nombrilism?

      I know she’s nobody. A fabrication of the khazar music industry. Maybe it’s just an L.A. Thing. It just seems like women don’t care about much and just want to have fun while the guys just want Star Wars and sports. Nobody really wants to grow up! And the sheep still don’t know they are sheep.

      I won’t hate you. I was just wondering how to get through to the women. They seem more grown up than the guys sometimes and much more willing to listen. But not much. Very few are willing to discuss any of this. I get the usual mindless stare does not compute look quite often from many.

      Are you in Europe? Europeans aren’t quite as dumb as Americans.
