Ubiquitous NSA Telephone Call Logging: The Practical Significance

The real significance of NSA spying.

Ubiquitous NSA Telephone Call Logging: The Practical Significance

Author: Stephen DeVoy

Recent revelations that the NSA is logging all telephone calls of all Americans, while blatantly illegally and outrageously anti-democratic, are far more significant than the media leads you to believe.  These revelations are not really new.  An earlier article made it clear that a defense contractor was being paid to build "a system to identify calling patterns between suspected terrorists."  The new article states that the NSA "is using the data to analyze calling patterns in an effort to detect terrorist activity."  Since it has now been revealed that the goal is to log and database ALL telephone calls between Americans and analyze them to detect terrorist activity, we can conclude that the Bush Administration considers ALL Americans to be terrorists.

According to "Administration propaganda network" Fox News, the Almighty Decider Bush declared, "Our intelligence activities strictly target Al Qaeda and their known affiliates. Al Qaeda is our enemy and we want to know their plans."  Bush is telling the truth.  You see, there is no Al-Qaeda, at least not in reality.  "Al-Qaeda" is just a term the Almighty Decider uses to signify everyone who opposes Him.  As Bush Himself said, on November 6, 2001, "You are either with us or against us."  Since "Us" means Bush, and since nearly 80% of the American population opposes Bush, 80% of the American population is "Al-Qaeda."  That means that nearly every American IS IN FACT a member of "Al-Qaeda" (at least in Bush's fantasy world).  Bush, therefore, is telling it like it is (to Him) when he says that the new NSA program is targeting Al-Qaeda only (read 80% of Americans).  And why is it important to monitor this "Al-Qaeda"?  Well, to protect the other 20% from the 80%.  Who would that 20% be?  Well, it appears to me that that 20% would be the kernel of his fascist state which, for the most part, is comprised of the ruling class and men with low IQ's (and yes, a few women who like men with low IQ's).

That said, lets get to what this really means.  Bush is targeting everyone who disagrees with him.  What could he possible gain by having a database of the relationships between each American and every other American as well as the relationships between each American and every business?  You must keep in mind that Bush wants this information so that it can be used to protect the 20% of Americans who now rule over the other 80%.  That means, he needs this information to keep 80% of the population from doing what they could easily do without some means of restraining them (e.g. overthrow the state, arrest all members of the corrupt regime, put the criminals on trial, etc).

How can one restrain 80% of the population by maintaining a database of all relationships (and face it, nearly all relationships are discernable through identifying who telephones whom)?  Isn't it obvious?  If you still can't guess, let me spell it out for you: BLACKMAIL, HARASSMENT, THREATS, INDUCEMENT OF LOSS OF EMPLOYMENT, DISINFORMATION and so on.  Basically, all of the things that dictatorships do to keep the masses from overthrowing the elite.  Indeed, all Bush and his STASI need do is make an example out of everyone who speaks up.  In short shrift, no one will speak up.  Many of us know first hand that the Bush Regime has interfered in our lives already using the aforementioned list of black deeds.  I could name a long list of online writers who have already experienced these black deeds and I would be on that list.

What the Almighty Decider is doing is a direct and major threat to your liberty, your happiness, your future, and everything you value in life.  Do not take it sitting down.
