The tyranny has arrived.
And has its feet up on the table.
Wake the fuck up, Samuel!
Greenwald in The Intercept:
"One of the many pressing stories that remains to be told from the
Snowden archive is how western intelligence agencies are attempting to
manipulate and control online discourse with extreme tactics of
deception and reputation-destruction. It’s time to tell a chunk of that
story, complete with the relevant documents.
Over the last several weeks, I worked with NBC News to publish a series of articles about “dirty trick” tactics used by GCHQ’s previously secret unit, JTRIG (Joint Threat Research Intelligence Group). These were based on four classified GCHQ documents presented to the NSA and the other three partners in the English-speaking “Five Eyes” alliance. Today, we at the Intercept are publishing another new JTRIG document, in full, entitled “The Art of Deception: Training for Online Covert Operations.”
"I noticed a few people who seemed confused about why these kinds of
tactics are used. It’s because there is a technologically enabled
time-window for the fight between totalitarianism and constitutional
democracy, and right now totalitarianism is making a large power play.
Us hackers for far too long have relied upon the idea that we will
always be one step ahead of the behemoth 3/4-letters of the world,
because that’s how it was in the past. I would say this attitude is a
mistake in the current situation. Even the most technologically capable
of us are having a hard time going anon these days, with bios, mbr, and
hdd firmware level backdoors and rootkits as revealed by some of the
Snowden docs, the man is catching up."
Obama falls on the totalitarian side. In case you're confused.
The great ruse and false narrative he's managed to swindle people with
is that Bush - who has been out of office for six years now - left such a
mess it takes time to fix while positioning the President in a way such
that he's impotent to make 'meaningful' decisions because Congress
refuses to 'work with him.' By this they mean, to agree with everything
he says. When they challenge him it's 'obstructionism.'
Instead, what we're seeing is not only an American government unhinged
but one that is leaderless and rudderless. It has no ideas as it runs
Obama wants the freedom of the press muzzled and whisle-blowers punished.
Remember this next time he insufferably babbles about freedom and transparency.
