Editor: I doubt there will be any mention of this in the establishment, big money, media. Remember the Republican Party is in charge of both the U.S. House and Senate. Any claim that they could not prevent this because of Democrats is a CROCK. The ‘RULES” of the Senate & House, they will throw up as an excuse, are created by the House and Senate themselves so they can accomplish what their true objectives are and pretend to our faces they could not help the outcome. Furthermore the U.S. House ALONE has the power of the purse according to the Constitution. They do not require passage by the Senate under the Constitution. The President has no Constitutional Authority to VETO a funding bill. Like the Pharisees and Sadducee in Jesus day they have made rules that defy the the supreme law of the land. Their TYRANNY deserves judgment.
For those nervous about digital and physical privacy intrusions and the reach of Big-brother type surveillance tactics, things just got a lot worse. President Barack Obama recently signed into law a bill that includes new spying powers and reporting powers for government, corporations, and private citizens willing to spy on others.
John Knefel for Inverse.com reported that the massive spending bill included new spying powers for the government and corporations. Attached to the must-pass budget legislation was the Cybersecurity Information Sharing Act (CISA), which allows tech companies to pass user information to the federal government under the guise of preventing cyber attacks.
Knefel warns that laws like CISA will continue to break down barriers between privately collected data and governments who will seek to exploit it in the name of cybersecurity or terrorism prevention.
Critics say the law wont do anything to secure vulnerable networks, but will drastically expand the governments surveillance powers. For one, CISA gives seven agencies including the NSA broad access to personal information collected by online companies without requiring a warrant.
Evan Greer, Fight for the Futures campaign director, refers to CISA as “the new Patriot Act,” and “a bill that was born out of a climate of fear and passed quickly and quietly using a broken and nontransparent process.”
Companies are getting in on the spying trend too with powerful cameras and related software. An example is UK company Facewatch, which has developed a way to crowdsource a watchlist that allows shop owners and restaurant managers in Britain to share CCTV footage to identify shoplifters or others deemed undesirable.
Worse yet is the implication that you dont need to be convicted of a crime, or even accused, for someone to tag you as a Facewatch person of interest. Even reformed criminals who have paid their debt to society may still be vulnerable to the radar of surveillance databases lagging in updates.
