Private Spy Corporation works for Pentagon to Avoid Constitution Stumbling Block of Liberty and Freedom

Private Spy for Pentagon to Avoid Constitution Stumbling Block – Elite Fear Exposure and Awakening
Project Vigilant is a Private organization that tracks 250 million IP addresses a day, and there are only around 300 million people in the USA. If you remove most of the Governments Employees and those that don’t have internet access every private citizen could be tracked.
Project Vigilant is a private corporation and is not held to the limits of the CIA and Government Secret Police, such as, judicial search warrants, probable cause, due process, expected privacy, etc.
Project Vigilant has been developing portfolios on Internet users since 1996 and handing the “Internet villains” information to U.S. Secret Police agencies as part of a massive intelligence gathering program.
As the latest incarnation of the Total Information Awareness spy program was revealed at yesterday’s Defcon security conference, in an effort to add more recruits to its 600 member strong cyber spy force Project Vigilant went public.
Project Vigilant’s manifold methods for gathering intelligence includes collecting information from a dozen regional U.S. Internet service providers, because the companies included a provision allowing them to share users’ Internet activities with third parties in their end user license agreements (EULAs), Vigilant was able to legally able to gather data from the Internet carriers, can develop portfolios on any name, screen name or IP address and use it to craft reports for federal agencies.
Project Vigilant director Chet Uber also founded InfraGard, the ominous FBI-affiliated public-private partnership that is a key component of the unfolding implementation of martial law in the United States. InfraGard made its intentions to act as a political police force clear in March 2009 when the group announced that questions surrounding Barack Obama’s presidential eligibility were “potentially harmful to civil order and national security”.
Uber’s organization poses as a volunteer orientated crime-fighting private outfit, and yet it is nothing more than a tentacle of the military-industrial complex’s sprawling unconstitutional internal spy apparatus.
Project Vigilant is an offshoot of the Pentagon’s Defense Advanced Research Project Agency’s Total Information Awareness, a program designed to catalogue, “Every purchase you make with a credit card, every magazine subscription you buy and medical prescription you fill, every Web site you visit and e-mail you send or receive, every academic grade you receive, every bank deposit you make, every trip you book and every event you attend,” as the New York Times’ William Safire wrote in November 2002.
TIA, symbolized by its logo of an all-seeing eye atop a pyramid shining upon the globe, was supposedly nixed by Congress shortly after it became public, but the program merely went underground and continued as a part of the Pentagon’s “black budget” and in conjunction with a 1000s of private contractors in the same mould as Project Vigilant.
As Capitol Hill Blue reported back in 2004, “Despite Congressional action cutting funding, and the resignation of the program’s controversial director, retired admiral John Poindexter, DARPA’s TIA program is alive and well and prying into the personal business of Americans 24 hours a day, seven days a week.”
DARPA has hired private contractors to perform the exact same duties set out in Total Information Awareness, and Project Vigilant is undoubtedly one of them. By hiring private companies to do the dirty work of spying on the American people, Congressional audits can be avoided and legal barriers can be sidestepped.
Project Vigilant is clearly nothing less than a government controlled attack dog fulfilling its role to implement the cybersecurity agenda, which as we have exhaustively documented has nothing to do with security and everything to do with political oppression, Chinese style Internet censorship, and the total evisceration of free speech on the world wide web and police action against dissent or exposure.
For Example, the target of one such investigation did not fall into the category of cyber criminals – “terrorists, drug cartels, mobsters” – that the group claims to be fighting.
Project Vigilant “encouraged one of its “officers”, researcher Adrian Lamo, to inform the federal government about the alleged source of a controversial video of civilian deaths in Iraq leaked to whistle-blower site Wikileaks in April,” reports Forbes.
Project Vigilant director Chet Uber used Lamo’s friendship with Bradley Manning, the former U.S. Army intelligence analyst who allegedly released the classified video, to out Manning, who now faces criminal charges. Uber told Lamo that it was his “patriotic duty” to inform on the man who was instrumental in bringing to light the war atrocities witnessed in the infamous “Collateral Murder” video, which shows U.S. troops slaughtering over a dozen innocent people and injuring others, including two children, Sajad Salah and his little sister Duaa Salah.
This ‘Belligerent’ Whistleblower, Whistleblowing only came to light because of the widespread alternative media coverage. Who knows how many ‘enemy belligerents’, ‘unprivileged enemy’, ‘political dissidents’ and those that expose government crimes or Sovereign Individual Violations?

Zbigniew Brzezinski – At CFR conference in Montreal
On the Two New Global Oppositions to Global Governance
CFR Goals of Global Imperialism and World Domination Sees Difficult Times Ahead. Derailing Sounds warning of B/O (bush/obama) Railroading to Increase.
“Let me begin by making just a thumbnail definition of the geo-political context in which we all find ourselves, including America.
And in my perspective that geo-political context is very much defined by Two New Global Realities.
The first is that global political leadership by which I mean by the role of curtain leading powers in the world has become much more diversified unlike what is was until relatively recently. relatively recently still the world was dominated by the Atlantic world as it had been for many centuries. It no Longer is. Today the rise of the Far east has created a new but more differentiated global leadership. one which in a nutshell involves if one could hazard an arbitrary list of primary players on the world scene. The united states clearly, maybe next to it but maybe the European Union, I say maybe because it not yet a political entity. Certainly, increasingly so and visibly so, China, Russia Mainly in one respect only, because it is a nuclear power, co equal to the United States, but otherwise very deficient in all of the major indices what constitutes global power.
Behind Russia perhaps individually, but to a much lesser extent, Germany, France, Great Britain, Japan certainly although it does not have the political assertive posture and India is rising.
And then in the background of that we have the new entity of the G20.
A much more diversified global leadership, lacking internal unity, with many of its members in bilateral antagonisms. That makes the context much more complicated.
The other major change in international affairs is for the first time in all of human history, mankind is politically awakened. That’s a total new reality, Total new reality. It has not been so for most of human history until the last 100 years and in the course of the last 100 years the whole world has become politically awakened and no matter where you go politics is a matter of social engagement and most people generally know what is going on generally going on in the world and are consciously aware of global iniquities, inequalities, lack of respect, exploitation.
Mankind is now politically awaked and stirring.
The combination of the two, the diversified global leadership, politically awakened masses makes a much more difficult context for any major power, including currently, the leading world power, the United States.”
Question: “I really enjoyed your presentation but I’m wondering how would you rate the United Nations in helping solve some of the geopolitical problems that we’ve had. Some people say they are not adding a lot of solutions and some people even suggest we should have another organization internationally to do the jobs the United Nations should be doing. And even people talking about one world governments, I mean how do you view the UN right now?”
Zbigniew Brzezinksi: “Well you know there should be such an organization. The word should implies that there is a kind of moral imperative or need it, but it doesn’t it exist. Why doesn’t it exist, because we do a situation in which there is a concentrated source of power that has universal reach. Not even America has that. So the United Nation functions well in areas in which it is possible to generate consensus. And that deals usually with areas pertaining to human suffering, or to well being, or to health. The food organization, the health organization, the relief agencies or arbitration of conflicts of secondary importance. In which the international community can kind of endorse what the UN is doing.
But the UN is not a world government. The UN when it comes to politics is based out of fiction. Namely 190 states which are members, each of which is coequal with the others, except for the five that have the veto right, in the security council. So it is an organization which reflects ongoing diversity of the world. And in that we have a consequence, we have to realize that real solutions for political problems, to political conflicts come from those entities that have power have the willingness to or the ability coalesce or get stymied in the process or even go into conflict.
The UN can deal with areas regarding which there is a great deal of international consensus like the ones I’ve mentioned and that reality is going to continue for some time to come.”
“The Technetronic era involves the gradual appearance of a more controlled society. Such a society would be dominated by an elite, unrestrained by traditional values. Soon it will be possible to assert almost continuous surveillance over every citizen and maintain up-to-date complete files containing even the most personal information about the citizen. These files will be subject to instantaneous retrieval by the authorities”
- Zbigniew Brzezinksi from his 1970’s book “Between Two Ages: America’s Role in the Technetronic Era.
