Obama ‘Even Worse’ Than Bush On Secret Wiretapping Case, Says S.F. Lawyer

By Peter Jamison
SF Weekly

San Francisco attorney Jon Eisenberg thinks he’s learned a thing or two about Barack Obama over the past 15 months. Eisenberg, who won a landmark decision against the government in Northern California’s U.S. District Court Wednesday on a wiretapping case, says that when it comes to violating civil liberties in the name of national security, the present occupant of the White House is just as bad as — or “even worse” than — his predecessor.

“The Obama Administration stepped right into the shoes of the Bush Administration, on national security generally and on this case in particular,” Eisenberg said, referring to the lawsuit brought by his clients, an Oregon branch of an Islamic charity and two American lawyers. The plaintiffs argued successfully before federal Judge Vaughn Walker that their conversations were illegally wiretapped under the Bush Administration’s secret surveillance program.

Offensive Technology CIA Spying on you Through Your Electronics


Offensive technology CIA spying on you through your electronics.

Is anyone truly surprised by this report? Slowly but surely, our privacy is being taken from us. Whether it is by amendments to the Constitution by Congress, Executive Orders by our Commander and Chief, technological advancements in the electronics we purchase or simply by handing over every little detail of our personal lives in social networking sites, there is very little privacy left in our private lives.

Is your TV watching you? Latest models raise concerns

by Gary Merson

MSNBC

Samsung’s 2012 top-of-the-line plasmas and LED HDTVs offer new features never before available within a television including a built-in, internally wired HD camera, twin microphones, face tracking and speech recognition. While these features give you unprecedented control over an HDTV, the devices themselves, more similar than ever to a personal computer, may allow hackers or even Samsung to see and hear you and your family, and collect extremely personal data.
While Web cameras and Internet connectivity are not new to HDTVs, their complete integration is, and it’s the always connected camera and microphones, combined with the option of third-party apps (not to mention Samsung’s own software) gives us cause for concern regarding the privacy of TV buyers and their friends and families.

Samsung has not released a privacy policy clarifying what data it is collecting and sharing with regard to the new TV sets. And while there is no current evidence of any particular security hole or untoward behavior by Samsung’s app partners, Samsung has only stated that it “assumes no responsibility, and shall not be liable” in the event that a product or service is not “appropriate.”

Samsung demoed these features to the press earlier this month. The camera and microphones are built into the top if the screen bezel in the 2012 8000-series plasmas and are permanently attached to the top of the 7500- and 8000ES-series LED TVs. A Samsung representative showed how, once set up and connected to the Internet, these models will automatically talk to the Samsung cloud and enable viewers to use new and exciting apps.

These Samsung TVs locate and make note of registered viewers via sophisticated face recognition software. This means if you tell the TV whose faces belong to which users in your family, it personalizes the experience to each recognized family member. If you have friends over, it could log these faces as well.

In addition, the TV listens and responds to specific voice commands. To use the feature, the microphone is active. What concerns us is the integration of both an active camera and microphone. A Samsung representative tells us you can deactivate the voice feature; however this is done via software, not a hard switch like the one you use to turn a room light on or off.

And unlike other TVs, which have cameras and microphones as add-on accessories connected by a single, easily removable USB cable, you can’t just unplug these sensors.

In Humor, Truth Congresswoman outraged over being wiretapped… but voted for the Patriot Act


In Humor, Truth Congresswoman outraged over being wiretapped… but voted for the Patriot Act.

This is rediculious. It is not clear wheter this conversation took place or if the alligations are fabricated on her behalf but first they need to release the transcripts of this particular alleged conversation and deals she may or may not have had with any one. She is demanding they release the unredacted original transcripts so they can determine with whom she was allegedally speaking to and about what.

Unclear and unknown to us at the moment are probably reasons someone is wanting this Congresswoman to be black listed and run out of Washington. Things like this stuation are not always clear nor do they make sense at the time of the event but usually the truth and motivation behind such happens will eventually be known. You may have to piece have to piece it together like a 100, 000 piece puzzle but it will be there evenutally!
