The Guardian has now revealed that the NSA paid millions of dollars to Microsoft, Google, Yahoo and Facebook to cover the cost of its illegal activity AFTER the courts ruled that what it was doing was unconstitutional and they could not separate domestic surveillance from pretended international. This all took place AFTER a court ruled that some of the agency’s activities were unconstitutional, according to top-secret material passed to the Guardian.
This is absolutely outrageous and no wonder the head of Microsoft is suddenly retiring. He belongs in prison. The scam is the same thing the banks do all the time. They send the US cash of customers to London and London requires the signature of a customer before placing that money in the overnight markets. The banks steal your cash, pretends it is their’s, signs the papers in London as if it is their’s, and everyone is happy legally in London.
Here we have the same scam. The NSA didn’t break the law. What is going on is the companies involved are WILLINGLY turning over your info and lying to everyone about it. That way the NSA did not violate the law, the tech companies are doing so.
This opens a whole new chapter and it means as long as you do not sue in New York City or Washington DC, these companies have violated EVERYONE’s Civil Rights no different than the South use to do preventing blacks from voting. This is CRIMINAL activity 18 USC § 241 and is serious stuff. There should be a massive class action lawsuit against the whole lot of them and there should be jail time for the CEOs involved along with their counterparts in the NSA who circumvented the courts and the constitution.
Either we are a nation of laws, or we are a nation with laws only for some.
