Russ_Tice_2009Much ado has been made in the media about the revelations unveiled by Edward Snowden in relation to the illegal eavesdropping by the NSA of US citizens.

Snowden who has been featured widely in the media for his role in exposing the US government who, in collaboration with various businesses such as Facebook and Google, conducted mass surveillance of the public – including those who were not even residents of the USA.

Now in hiding, the media has reported how Snowden is now a major target of the US security forces, who have publicly declared that they will be subjecting him to prosecution – maybe worse.

Senator Ron Paul in America, also spoke out about his fears that the US may try to use drones to try and stake Snowden out.

But while all this was going on, there was another whistleblower who did not receive as much attention for the media – and even on those interviews where he was given a platform, much of the information he gave was misrepresented.

Russ Tice worked as a National Security Agency (NSA) agent from 2002 to 2005 and prior to that had worked as a U.S. intelligence analyst for 20 years.

He revealed how the security forces had not only carried out spying operations against the public, but had also spied on top figures within America, including Obama, members of congress, Hillary Clinton, and Colin Powell, to name but a few.

He said that the purpose of such operations were not only to keep tabs on these political figures but it was also used to blackmail them into towing the line.

“The abuse is rampant and everyone is pretending that it’s never happened, and it couldn’t happen. … I know [there was abuse] because I had my hands on the papers for these sorts of things,” he said: “They went after high-ranking military officers; they went after members of congress — Senate and the House — especially on the intelligence committees and the armed services committees, lawyers, law firms, judges, State Department officials, part of the White House, multinational companies, financial firms, NGOs [and] civil rights groups.”

A source inside the NSA claimed that the spy agency has the ability to copy “every domestic communication in this country, word for word, content, every phone conversation, every email for the purposes of collecting everything in bulk and putting it in databases.”

    Well, shucks, I could go on and on. But I really need to focus on the foreclosure notices I’ve been getting from Citibank and Chase. Now that is the biggest fraud of them all! But they are giants that are much bigger than this jolly green giant! Or maybe not… we shall see…

    Adios for now!

    Next item. Please investigate the Califronia Unemployment Insurance Department. They also do not provide an insurance policy for this required tax that employers must pay for their employees. How about starting this investigation from the top downwards with the CUIB – California Unemployment Insurance Appeals Board in Sacramento. My 2nd Appeal was decided by two men. I don’t know if they currently have legal authority to make a decision. I proved I was denied improperly after many months of getting the complete run around by the unemployment department and the administrative law offices. Of course they stopped my payments during this process and made it such a nightmare for me that I now refuse to play their deceptive games any longer.

    Would you please ask the NSA or whoever, to do some investigation into the Social Security Disability Insurance Program. I’m not sure who handles policing that enity. First of all, they are not an insurance agency. Misrepresenting this business as an Insurance when there is no policy provided to the tax payers who are required to pay them. Seems like a lemon law violation to me. False claims of proving financial security that injures families financially and emotionally if they need to file a disability claim. If they ever get approved it takes years and thousands of tax payers dollars paid in wages to administrative government employees,judges, SSA hired Medical and Vocational Experts which leaves nothing left for the disabled workers. They get a F Rating from me.

    Good for old NSA! Let’s use the advanced spying technology to expose all the corrupt greedy people and remove them from any position of authority! HOYAH!

    The Brave and Loyal Military Personnel appear to me to be turning this technology right back on the spinless bottom feeding creatures who’s real agenda for gathering all this private and personal information is not for the safety of mankind but for their own personal gain and protection.

    Thank you to your service! Please continue to rid this beautiful world of these corrupt, deceitful, greedy parasites! They crawl into peoples skin….then infection has opportunity to set in….time for these pests to go………..go where you say?
    Put them to use doing heavy labor jobs for $8.50 hour.
