Big Brother and the Matrix
Although Congress cut off funding for TIA last year, the Bush
Administration ordered the program moved into the Pentagon’s “black bag” budget,
which is neither authorized nor reviewed by the Hill.
¼Six months of interviews with
security consultants, former DARPA employees, privacy experts and contractors
who worked on the TIA facility at 3701 Fairfax Drive in Arlington reveal a
massive snooping operation that is capable of gathering – in real time – vast
amounts of information on the day to day activities of ordinary Americans.

Data mining and personal privacy:
Electronic Privacy Information Center's Technology and Privacy Advisory
Committee (TAPAC), "established to review the Defense Department data mining
initiatives after the Total Information Awareness fiasco," has released a
report in which it makes 12 recommendations which among other things, proposes
that federal agencies be required to obtain authorization from a special
federal court "before engaging in data mining with personally identifiable
information concerning U.S. persons."
New government database lets
security trump your privacy
"MATRIX (Multistate Anti-Terrorism Information Exchange) is a monster
government database run by a company called Seisint. It is funded and managed
by the Department of Homeland Security along with several state governments,
most notably Florida."
Total Information Awareness II?
"Records obtained by the American Civil Liberties Union and the Associated
Press point to the very real possibility that the Matrix also has the
potential to be a recreation of TIA. It is known that at one point that a
precursor to the system was used for data-mining terrorist suspects."

Speaking at an international security conference in

"The troubling unknown, he said, is whether

the global system of nation-states -- are turning out newly trained terrorists
faster than the United States can capture or kill them.

of al-Qa'im on the Syrian border, the AP broadcast video of the wedding

SOMETHING WORTH FIGHTING FOR
On May 22, 1964 President Lyndon Johnson gave a speech at the
University of Michigan in Ann Arbor, the echoes of which are still being felt.
In it he spoke of "The Great Society," which called for greater governmental
expansion into areas which historically were handled by the private sector. This
same "corporate state," described by one economist as the "rapprochement
of big business, big unions, and big government," constitutes redistribution of
the wealth, has continued to exist in one fashion or another through Democratic
and Republican administrations. It will remain in place no matter if Bush
or Kerry is elected in November. And it's legacy continues to represent an
attack on economic freedom in America.
Getting rid of oppressive
"Some groups of American citizens
now feel our government has gotten totally out of hand. Duh. They should have
seen this coming in 1965 when Lyndon B. Johnson, then-president, announced his
"Great Socialist Society" as a golden orb of progress for America. What it was,
and is, and will be until dismantled, is a brass chain of oppression aimed at
taking down America's strong middle class that produces the wealth the
government steals to feed itself and pay on its incredible debt. Some, of
course, is distributed to the non-producers who are able bodied but cannot find
"suitable" work. Since when does work have to be suitable if one needs to pay
bills? Making a living is one thing; making the kind of living Americans have
grown to desire via advertising and goodie-charm fascination is another. Before
the government was willing to subsidize freeloaders, they got out and worked or
starved, which is great motivation."
The Great Society--a libertarian
"The cruelest myth fostered by the
liberals is that the Great Society functions as a great boon and benefit to the
poor; in reality, when we cut through the frothy appearances to the cold reality
underneath, the poor are the major victims of the welfare state. The poor are
the ones to be conscripted to fight and die at literally slave wages in the
Great Society's imperial wars. The poor are the ones to lose their homes to the
bulldozer of urban renewal, that bulldozer that operates for the benefit of real
estate and construction interests to pulverize available low-cost housing."
The state of our delusion

give every citizen an escape from the crushing weight of poverty,' he was

THE RESIGNATION OF GEORGE TENET:
VOLUNTARY OR FORCED?
Although Central Intelligence Agency Director George Tenet
announced his resignation for personal reasons, sources behind the scenes in
Washington say President George Bush gave him the choice of resigning or being
fired. The CIA under Tenet has become a convenient scapegoat for reported
breeches in U.S. intelligence, including the terror attacks on 9-11 and the
issue of WMDs in Iraq (or lack thereof). More recently, a CIA connection to
prisoner abuse at Abu Ghraib has been noted. All in all, it was deemed necessary
that Tenet fall on his sword to aid Bush's reelection chances.

criticism over questionable intelligence on Iraq and terrorism since the

"Last week the LA Times reported a “hate crime”
incident on the campus of Claremont College. Claremont McKenna College

police brought in the FBI, classes on all five campuses of the college were
cancelled, and students and faculty held 'teach-ins' including mass
demonstrations with placards calling for more racial diversity."

was a shoplifter. While earning a PhD in psychology, she was ordered into

agree here with the Free Republic comment that people in those neighborhoods
need to start taking responsibility for their lives and not expect someone to
do it for them.] Some of his statements were so strong, in fact, that they
would have caused him to be labeled as a racist if he were white. Among other

"Its aim, according to the Justice Department, is to give federal law
enforcement agencies the surveillance and investigative tools they need to
deter future terror attacks, but the quick, emotional passage of the Patriot
Act only weeks after the September 11th attacks allowed little time for
scrutiny of its measures. In fact, most members of Congress did not read it
