Government Is Tracking Verizon Customers’ Records @ The Wall Street Journal. Some excerpts:

“The National Security Agency is obtaining a complete set of phone records from  all Verizon U.S. customers under a secret court order, according to a published account and former officials.”

“Verizon is required to provide NSA with “all call detail records” of customers, including all local and long-distance calls within the U.S., as well as calls between the U.S. and overseas…”

“Mr. Drake said call records are just a fraction of the data NSA is collecting, which also includes data about emails and data on any type of electronic communication, which includes iPads, Kindles and other mobile devices. All can be used to track the owner’s location. “It’s a total violation of the Fourth Amendment,” he said.”

“The Fourth Amendment protects against unreasonable searches and seizures.”

“Congress voted last December to extend the expanded FISA surveillance law for another five years.”

The Dark Age of Money @ Counterpunch “Beginning sometime around 1970 the U.S. and most of the ‘free world’ have diverged from traditional “free market capitalism” to something different.  Today the U.S. and much of the world’s economies are operating under what I call Monetary Fascism: a system where financial interests control the State for the advancement of the financial class.  This is markedly different from traditional Fascism: a system where State and industry work together for the advancement of the State.”
