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?

“A Swiss professor working with a Massachusetts Institute of Technology scientist who heads the Mind Machine Project there outlined how this program operates through computerized scanning of phone calls and electronic messages sent through e-mail and social networking mechanisms,” reports the Buffalo News.
The system works by detecting “resentment in conversations through measurements in decibels and other voice biometrics,” more specifically the emotional spikes that characterize “hatred and deep resentment toward government.”
“As for written transmissions scrutinized by the computer program, it can detect the same patterns of fixation on specified subjects,” states the report.
Once an individual has been identified as harboring “resentment toward government,” the information can be “passed along to authorities so surveillance can begin.”
How many times do you flush, too much hot water, which of the 250 devices in my house am I using? National Security needs gets to know.
Now we need a Big Brother ‘Black Box’ to keep us safe at Home and a Smart Grid to keep us safe in the World?
And Mainstream Corporate Statism Industry is to Take Over by these Physical Controls?
The New Freedom we are being asked to give is Uniform Spying Equipment Installed in each Home to Monitor Everyone Equally and Totally.
We are being told that in order to enjoy the level of freedom that we currently have, we must be safe, we must do the democratic thing and Install Big Brothers Home Monitors. We must create a smart grid that will allow Corporate Statism to monitor and control every aspect of your life.
One of the Corportate Statism’s pushers, Democratic Sen. Jay Rockefeller said this was not for just military or intelligence concerns. “It is a lot more than that. It suddenly gets into the realm of traffic lights and rail networks and water and electricity,”
Nancy Pelosi slipped the fact that “Every aspect of our lives must be subject to inventory” in order to fight global warming in reference to her China visit
Mark Klein reported the multinational corporation he worked for was doing this at the government’s request.
The “vacuum-cleaner surveillance” approach grabs everything. “Despite what we are hearing, I simply do not believe their claims that the NSA’s spying program is really limited to foreign communications or is otherwise consistent with the NSA’s charter or with FISA [the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act],” Klein said in 2006.
