I don’t tend to be someone who trusts the words out of the mouths of those in political office, but even the dishonest (which most politicians certainly seem to be) tell the truth sometimes. This seems to be one of those rare times.
Democratic Congressman Dennis Kucinich, who also ran for the Democratic Party Presidential nomination in 2004 and 2008, has been writing recently about privacy concerns and Federal government intrusion into the privacy of everyday Americans. Kucinich recently commented on Wikileaks recently released revelations about CIA surveillance of Americans:
“If Tuesday’s WikiLeaks document dump is authentic, as it appears to be, then the agency left open electronic gateways that make all Americans vulnerable to spying, eavesdropping and technological manipulation that could bring genuine harm[…].“It is bad enough that the government spies on its own people. It is equally bad that the CIA, through its incompetence, has opened the cyberdoor to anyone with the technological skills and connections to spy on anyone else[…].
“The constant erosion of privacy at the hands of the government and corporations has annihilated the concept of a ‘right to privacy,’ which is embedded in the rationale of the First, Third, Fourth, Ninth and Fourteenth Amendments to the U.S. Constitution.
“It is becoming increasingly clear that we are sliding down the slippery slope toward totalitarianism, where private lives do not exist.” (hat tip to here for the source)
The mainstream media sources are questioning the validity of Wikileaks report even though Wikileaks has a spotless record of honesty and accuracy in reporting. Of course, these same mainstream media sources are the ones who keep looking for Russian hacking of the U.S. election even though no credible sources or verifiable accusations have shown up.
In other words, the mainstream media, which is often in bed with the deep state (the bureaucrats who aren’t elected and run most things), is trying to retain their control on Americans who passively accept the government’s narrative which allows the deep state to keep their control of the people.
Really, this shouldn’t be a surprise to anyone who has any shred of objectivity. Big Brother is here, has been here, and is fighting to stay in control. Going off grid in America is an option, but, if you value your privacy, if you value living by traditional American values, then you may need to consider expatriating yourself.
