Obama’s a bigger Big Brother than the last guy

The American Conservative
by Kelley B. Vlahos


Obama seems driven to break every campaign promise he ever made and become the biggest Big Brother of them all. After flipping the script on Patriot Act reformists last year when he supported the extension of unconstitutional law enforcement provisions he once criticized, now he wants to broaden the amount of information the FBI can access without warrant for so-called counter-terror investigations …

National insecurity

Foundation for Economic Education
by Sheldon Richman


There’s a country that earlier generations might not recognize in which the national government’s criminal investigative agency can execute its own warrants without court approval; present them to private companies and demand information about people who are not necessarily suspected of criminal wrongdoing; and — if that were not enough — forbid those companies from telling anyone — not even the target of the investigation. The country I have in mind is not a Latin American banana republic or a Middle Eastern dictatorship. It’s the United States of America...

Obama’s surveillance power grab

The American Prospect
by Julian Sanchez


They’re calling it a tweak — a ‘technical clarification’ — but make no mistake: The Obama administration and the FBI’s demand that Congress approve a huge expansion of their authority to obtain the sensitive Internet records of American citizens without a judge’s approval is a brazen attack on civil liberties. At issue is the scope of the Federal Bureau of Investigation’s power to obtain information from ‘electronic communications service providers’ using National Security Letters (NLS), which compel private companies to allow government access to communication records without a court order. The administration wants to add four words — ‘electronic communication transactional records’ — to Section 2709 of the Electronic Communications Privacy Act, which spells out the types of communications data that can be obtained with an NSL...

Google, CIA invest in “Future” of web monitoring

by Noah Shachtman


The investment arms of the CIA and Google are both backing a company that monitors the web in real time — and says it uses that information to predict the future. The company is called Recorded Future, and it scours tens of thousands of websites, blogs and Twitter accounts to find the relationships between people, organizations, actions and incidents — both present and still-to-come. In a white paper, the company says its temporal analytics engine ‘goes beyond search’ by ‘looking at the ‘invisible links’ between documents that talk about the same, or related, entities and events’...

Your innocence is no protection

Liberty For All
by Harry Browne

When the politicians violate the Bill of Rights with the Patriot Act or some other guaranteed-to-bring-peace-and-security-to-the-world scheme, they always reassure us by saying: ‘If you aren’t guilty, you have nothing to fear.’ If only that were so. The truth is that innocence is no protection at all against government agencies with the power to do what they think best — or against a government agent hoping for promotion and willing to do whatever he can get away with...

Superclass: The New Global Aristocracy


The fraud of “Big-Picture” thinking

Campaign For Liberty
by James Bovard


Politicians, pundits, and others perennially invoke the ‘Big Picture.’ Recognizing the role of the Big Picture is vital to understanding how contemporary democracies are going off the rail. The Big Picture provides preemptive exoneration for almost anyone who wants to kowtow and cheerlead for political power. Fifteen years ago, there was a hullabaloo to denounce ‘politically correct’ mandates and imperatives. But the biggest beneficiary of ‘politically correct’ thinking may be political power itself...
