|"I'm shocked, shocked to find that data-mining is going on in here."|
1984 is Here - Democrats & GOP are building a 1,000,000 sq. foot data-mining facility in Utah to spy on everyone
- Labels such as "Liberal" or "Conservative" have no meaning. Both parties in Congress eagerly work together to build, grow and fund the unconstitutional Big Brother Police State.
Bottom line - The lying sacks of shit in Congress go on TV, look you in the eye, and claim they are SHOCKED that the programs they vote for are creating a Big Brother Police State. You can smell that line of Bullshit 500 miles away.
The personal data and private online conversations that the National Security Administration is accused of mining could be stashed in a one million square-foot, $1.9 billion facility in the Utah Valley.
Concerns over what the government will store at the Utah Data Center have been reinvigorated by the revelation that U.S. intelligence agencies have been extracting audio, video, photos, e-mails, documents and other information to track people's movements and contacts.
The bi-partisan Utah Data-Mining center opens in October.
|Welcome to the Utah Data Center|
Hmmm . . . Could it be that the military is gathering Internet
data on civilians? Say it ain't so.
The Utah Data Center which is being constructed on Camp Williams on the Salt Lake-Utah County line will be completed in October - but officials have been tight-lipped about what will be stored there.
Plans released by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, which is handling the construction, show the center will have four 'data halls' to store information and two substations to power the facility.
The spy center is being built at an estimated cost of $1.9 billion, and is expected to employ 100 to 200 permanent employees after its completion. The plans note they must all be U.S. citizens.
Despite the boom for the local economy, the American Civil Liberties Union of Utah has expressed their fears over what will be stored at the center.
'We're mining data, we're gathering data and it's all done secretly,' ACLU of Utah director Karen McCreary told Fox13. 'We don't even know what's going on.'
'When the NSA facility in Utah was announced, local officials praised it for the jobs it would bring,' Libertas director Connor Boyack added.
'As Americans are now learning, those jobs entail harvesting the data generated by innocent Americans not suspected of any crime, in contradiction to the Fourth Amendment.'
The fears come as The Washington Post reported that for the past six years, U.S. intelligence agencies have been extracting personal information from across the country.
The PRISM program was launched in 2007 with the blessing of special federal judges under the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act. The Post said that several members of the U.S. Congress were made aware of the classified data-gathering program, but were sworn to secrecy.
PRISM has been described by NSA officials 'as the most prolific contributor to the president's Daily Brief' and the 'leading source of raw material', the Post reported. The Post noted that the tech companies are knowingly taking part in PRISM, but The Guardian, which also received a leaked NSA report, reported than all nine pleaded ignorance of the program.
Casablanca gambling? I'm shocked!
The lying sacks of shit in Congress go on TV, look you in the eye, and claim the are SHOCKED that they programs they vote for are creating a Big Brother Police State.
