Tele-Spy Tuesday

1a

THE INTERCEPT HAS OBTAINED a secret, internal U.S. government catalogue of dozens of cellphone surveillance devices used by the military and by intelligence agencies. The document, thick with previously undisclosed information, also offers rare insight into the spying capabilities of federal law enforcement and local police inside the United States.

The catalogue includes details on the Stingray, a well-known brand of surveillance gear, as well as Boeing “dirt boxes” and dozens of more obscure devices that can be mounted on vehicles, drones, and piloted aircraft. Some are designed to be used at static locations, while others can be discreetly carried by an individual. They have names like Cyberhawk, Yellowstone, Blackfin, Maximus, Cyclone, and Spartacus. Within the catalogue, the NSA is listed as the vendor of one device, while another was developed for use by the CIA, and another was developed for a special forces requirement. Nearly a third of the entries focus on equipment that seems to have never been described in public before.

    Oh, Den. I feel so sorry for you, suffering like you are and all alone. Is it rheumatoid arthritis that is your main problem, giving you all the pain? I’ve heard that’s worse than osteoarthritis. Are there drugs for the rheumatoid? Probably, there are drugs for everything.

    What are you doing about your pain, have you been seeing your doctor? Or are you trying to fight it on your own? Bob’s back is killing him, he’s turning into a Vicodin junkie. Actually, he tries to not take them as often as allowed. He suffers as long as he can stand it before he’ll take another pill.

    You said Bob should have oxygen in the house, he does. He has one of those machines that constantly runs. I forget what it’s called. Oxygenator? No, that’s not it. He used it almost constantly since our humid summer.

    Hope there is a miracle and you feel better soon. xox

      Thanks for the good wishes Carol.

      I originally started with RA for which I take Methotrexate, another nasty but required med. with no withrawal other than return of the inflammation and pain. The Prednisone was supposed to help the OA, well we know how that turned out.

      Statins screwed up my muscles, like I needed more pain on the already growing pile.

      Addictive meds are an issue long term, Prednisone no good period!

      Stains need to be limited to five years use max, by then dietary changes need to take place. Many meds cause problems themselves requiring meds to treat leading to piling on meds just for the side effects.

      I stopped taking the statins and Prednisone and an glad I did since both withdrawals are counted in months and in some cases years, if I stopped taking one and waited till the pain stopped it would have taken twice as long for the screaming pain to subside since both meds cause major pain on withdrawal.

    Well, I’ve decided to hold of my purchase of a Tesla as my Xmas gift to myself this year, decided to pool my pennies until Space X rockets are sold to private parties.
