Last week, Congress passed CISA by hiding it in the middle of a sure-to-pass spending bill, and Obama signed it into law … even though the Department of Homeland Security had previously said that the bill will HURT national security and destroy privacy (numerous experts agreed).
And – just like with previous spying laws – the government has a secret interpretation of CISA which will make it even worse.
So why was the bill passed?
The highest-level NSA whistleblower in history – William Binney – the high-level NSA executive who created the agency’s mass surveillance program for digital information, 36-year NSA veteran widely regarded as a “legend” within the agency, who served as the senior technical director within the agency, and managed thousands of NSA employees – explains that corruption is what’s motivating mass surveillance against the American people … and it’s what’s making us vulnerable to terrorism.
Washington’s Blog asked Binney what he thought of CISA, and he said:
This is just another example of the White House, leadership (if you want to call it that) in Congress, the intelligence committees, and the intelligence agencies manipulating the system to get what they want (more money and more knowledge to control).
Clearly, CISA would not stand on it’s own; so, they had to sneak it through buried inside a massive funding bill at the end of the year.
Again, we see just another example of corruption in our government in Washington DC. They don’t have the courage or backbone to stand for what they want out in the open where there can be an honest debate like we are suppose to have in a democracy.
The established political parties should not be confused as to why citizens are sick of them. Our only solution is to fire them all in the next election and try to get honest citizens in these jobs.
Binney points out:
It would be good if most people in DC read the [articles of impeachment against Richard Nixon]. Nixon did only a miniscule amount of what the last two presidents and their co-conspirators have done and continue to do.
