NSA Monday

1a

If I am reading my signs correctly, the man with the pony tail is the only Intelligence in the room.

Privacy activists, human rights campaigners and former US security officials have expressed fears over the prospect of Donald Trump controlling the vast global US and UK surveillance network.

They criticized Barack Obama’s administration for being too complacent after the 2013 revelations by the NSA whistle-blower, Edward Snowden, and making only modest concessions to privacy concerns rather than carrying out major legislative changes.

The concern comes after Snowden dismissed fears for his safety if Trump, who called him “a spy who has caused great damage in the US”, was to strike a deal with Vladimir Putin to have him extradited.

Snowden, in a video link-up from Moscow with a Netherlands-based tech company on Thursday, said it would be “crazy to dismiss” the prospect of Trump doing a deal but if personal safety was a major concern for him, he would not have leaked the top-secret documents in the first place.

Snowden, wanted by the US on charges under the Espionage Act, found asylum in Russia in 2013 but his visa is due to expire in July.

Privacy and human rights campaigners in the US and UK say a Trump presidency will tip the balance between surveillance and privacy decisively towards the former. The UK surveillance agency GCHQ is so tied up with America’s NSA, often doing work on its behalf, it could find itself facing a series of ethical dilemmas.

    The drip and drizzle stopped shortly after I had started to the Birch & Barley. Took the usual 47 minutes.

      Thence to the optometrist followed by the dentist and return by the same route, except for not crossing and recrossing Bishop Blvd @ the Birch & Barley. Up the College Hill Climb and Maple Street Extension took 4 very short rests but after that my lumbar and right hip pains were gone. Just my left foot aches a smidgen.

      Monday total is 109 minutes.

    Unlike the Wiretap Act regulating voice recordings, visual images of 117 million Americans are kept by the so-called law enforcers.

    There. Don’t you feel safer now?

    Hope to get on the tractor tomorrow, mulch up the last of the leaves. Made one round on them last week, this will be the last. The ugly season is about to settle in, but I think every season is pretty in its own way.

    The house where Bad Daddy lived, he moved out a month or so ago, somebody has been cleaning it up and OH, HAPPY DAY…I saw someone in the bedroom, moving around, got the binocs..twins! The man was holding an infant and the woman seemed to be bathing another baby, could see its foot in the air a couple times. I’m so happy to finally see what the fresh hell might be. So far, no dogs. One of the gates in the stockade fence has been left wide open after someone mowed the place. No dogs…yet. With two children, they’re bound to get a dog sooner or later, but hopefully they’ll be loving dog parents and I won’t have to suffer again.
