Is Big Brother/Sister Watching?


(Reuters) - ..The U.S. Department of Homeland Security's command center routinely monitors dozens of popular websites, including Facebook, Twitter, Hulu, WikiLeaks and news and gossip sites including the Huffington Post and Drudge Report, according to a government document.

(In my opinion, the Government has always kept an "All Seeing Eye" on the People. The mentioned sites are being forced "to go along to get along"!) (Every site you visit or join retains all your personal information that can be used for a myriad of purposes, and it usually is!)

..A "privacy compliance review" issued by DHS last November says that since at least June 2010, its national operations center has been operating a "Social Networking/Media Capability" which involves regular monitoring of "publicly available online forums, blogs, public websites and message boards (Individual E-Mails, also)."

(In my opinion, it is an effort to see if their current propaganda is producing the desired results and also to gather information on the American people!)

..The purpose of the monitoring, says the government document, is to "collect information used in providing situational awareness and establishing a common operating picture".

(In my opinion, every American citizen is being watched by "Big Brother/Sister" in their, the government's, attempt to "coerce" the people into doing what the government wants them to do!)

..The document adds, using more plain language, that such monitoring is designed to help DHS and its numerous agencies, which include the U.S. Secret Service and Federal Emergency Management Agency.

(In my opinion, it is being used to manipulate public responses to government actions.)

..A DHS official familiar with the monitoring program said that it was intended purely to enable command center officials to keep in touch with various Internet-era media so that they were aware of major, developing events to which the Department or its agencies might have to respond.

(In my opinion, it will become the government's redaction to their disactions on behalf of "ALL" the American people!)

..The document outlining the monitoring program says that all the websites which the command center will be monitoring were "publicly available and... all use of data published via social media sites was solely to provide more accurate situational awareness, a more complete common operating pictures, and more timely information for decision makers..."

(In my opinion, It will be used to gather information that can be used against the people. If these sites don't adhere to government manipulations of the Internet they will be shut down.)

..The DHS official said that under the program's rules, the department would not keep permanent copies of the internet traffic it monitors. However, the document outlining the program does say that the operations center "will retain information for no more than five years."

(In my opinion, they (government) will use this information against those that they deem to be Anti-Washington Status Quo!)

..The monitoring scheme also features a five-page list, attached to the privacy review document, of websites the Department's command center expected to be monitoring.

(In my opinion, they are gathering a "Hit List of Americans" disgruntled with the current Washington In-Crowd!)

To me it's the same old, same old; "Trust me now and believe me later" Washington Syndrome! (We have to pass the Bill to see what is in it!)

In my opinion; IN ALL REALITY IT IS THE GOVERNMENT'S ENDEAVOR TO KEEP AN "EYE" NOT ON THE NEFARIOUS; BUT RATHER, ON THE AMERICAN PEOPLE? (Gauging the American people to see how they, the Government, need to change their corralling tactics!)
