What Edward Snowdon didn’t tell us

On January 6, 2011 a groundbreaking ceremony was held to begin construction on the NSA’s first National Cyber-Security Initiative Data Complex: the “Utah Data Center” for short. The two billion dollar data center is being built at Camp Williams, Utah, located twenty-five miles south of Salt Lake City. Its primary directive is to monitor and control what it perceives are threats to the prevailing institutions of government. The establishment’s greatest concern is not al Qaeda, ISIS, Iran, China or Russia; rather, it is deemed to be American citizens who might rise up and attempt to overthrow an increasingly totalitarian government.

CNBC News Studios. Englewood Cliffs, New Jersey. 6:00 p.m.

Under the guidance of Tom Rogers, CNBC was launched in 1989, and by 2007 was seen by five-hundred million viewers in ninety countries throughout the world. Its current headquarters in Englewood Cliffs, New Jersey, was in a glass skyscraper at 900 Route 9W.
The studio lights came up on news anchor Lance McGuire. Lance was in his early forties; his prematurely gray hair cut medium length. Very well dressed in a charcoal suit that definitely didn’t come off the rack at Sears. Maybe Armani or Gabbana. White silk shirt, more likely Yves St. Laurent or Dior, and a black tie, probably Zenga or Versace.
He shook out the kinks in his neck and shoulders, smiled, and signaled the lead cameraman that he was ready. There was a count down from ten, the operator pointed a finger at the newscaster, and they were on the air.
“Good evening viewers,” Lance announced, tapping his pages on the desk to even them out. “We have with us tonight Tim Underwood, Senior Editor at Wireless Magazine, who broke the story we’re about to discuss.
“Welcome, Mr. Underwood,” Lance said in his best baritone voice.
“Tim, please.” The young man came dressed in a tweed jacket, white shirt, red tie and faded jeans. He looked barely out of college, sporting a clean-shaven face, bushy brown hair that flowed over his collar, and riveting hazel eyes. His movements were lithe and swift, like a man in a hurry. Tim crossed his legs and opened his jacket.
“Thank you, Lance, for having me on,” he said. His words ran together like they were in a foot race. In all, he expressed a sense of urgency.
“Let’s get right to it, shall we?” Lance suggested.
“Yes, of course,” Tim replied. The young man was somehow uncomfortable in the present setting. He pushed back his hair that had fallen forward in his nervousness. “Let’s start with Stellar Wind. That’s the code name for the NSA’s Utah Data Center. Its purpose is to intercept, decipher, analyze, and store vast swaths of the world’s communications.”
Tim stopped for a drink of water, offered a strained smile that gave concern to the host, then continued. “All forms of communication, including the complete contents of private emails, cell phone calls, and Google searches will be scanned and stored, forever.”
“Wait a minute!” Lance insisted. “You’re telling me…and our viewers that this thing…this program can get inside our computers, our cell phones, our iPads?”
“And credit card accounts, and verbal communications,” Tim stated with the flip of a hand to emphasize the simplicity of the thing. “The video cameras, so ubiquitous throughout the cities, capture not only your image, but enable computer-generated software to read your lips.”
“Are you sure you haven’t been watching too much sci-fi?” Lance asked.
“I wish it were only so,” Tim lamented, then reached for some water. “While people busy themselves with texting, tweeting, surfing, and e-mailing, they’re exposing their lives to Big Brother, revealing every secret they thought was safe and protected. And it will be up to very large, very cold and calculating organizations to determine if US citizens are a threat, not to others, but to the system itself.”
“Organizations?” Lance broke in.
“The government security agencies: the NSA, CIA, ICE, INS, Homeland Security, FBI. Those entities have reached a size where they are self-perpetuating. Their primary directive, if you will, is to maintain the jobs of their people and the systems own demand for more power, more capabilities, become more intrusive, more indispensable.”
“Indispensable to whom?”
“To those in power, naturally.”
“But what’s the purpose of all the spying, the new laws, the arrests?” Lance asked.
“Control,” Tim said.
“Control who?”
“The dissidents.”
“Dissidents? I’m not following you.”
“The government isn’t worried about al Qaeda, or Islamofascists, or ISIS. The war of terror is trumped up to give the federal government and the states a reason to introduce more laws and enforce them more strictly. They spy on the groups, learn what they planning. Infiltrated the groups with FBI, ATF agents, or with paid informants. If they’re non-violent, the foment violence. They destroy the group’s credibility and ability to gain traction.
“You see, the government’s – or the men and institutions behind the scenes – greatest fear is the people themselves. The banksters and the corporations have taken just about all they can from the public. When citizens have nothing to lose, they revolt. The American people are very close to that right now. And the closer they get to being destitute, disillusioned, demoralized, the more laws, the more manpower, the government’s going to need to control them.”

As you can see, we have a lot of work to do. The first step is to realize the serious of the situation and spread the word so many more can get involved.
