ICREACH: The Government’s Searchable Database Of Private Communications


“Men fight for liberty and win it with hard knocks. Their children, brought up easy, let it slip away again, poor fools. And their grandchildren are once more slaves.”―D.H. Lawrence


The scale of illegal government and corporate spying on American citizens is literally beyond reason.  America is now inches away from becoming  a totalitarian state. Other nations laugh at how stupid citizens have become for tolerating this in view of the fact we used to be known as the land of the free!

And the proof is in the headlines...

·         A.P. Scandal Raises Specter of Big Brother — The New Yorker
Freedom of the Press is protected in the U.S. Constitution—but since when has Obama and his left-wing fanatics had any respect for our Constitution? But disrespect is a far cry from out-and-out spying! Shame on the President and his goons!

·         Benghazi emails show State Department had heavy hand — Fox News
What really happened in Benghazi—and who's to blame for the deaths of innocent Americans—may never be known! Because those loyal to Obama and Hillary began "massaging" the talking points from the very beginning! If the definition of censorship is suppressing unacceptable parts—Hillary and Obama are guilty as charged!

·         In IRS scandal, echoes of Watergate — Washington Post
The last time I was aware that an American president misused the IRS to undermine his political enemies—he was impeached! OBAMAGATE has a familiar ring to it!

·         Obama Administration defends massive phone record collection — Reuters
The White House recently confirmed the NSA has been collecting the phone records and web search data of all Americans!

Do you think the president was oblivious to his Administration's acts of spying... censorship... and gross misuse of power and intimidation tactics? NO!

Since I first began warning people about this growing threat to our liberty—and personal privay—the situation has gotten worse—far worse!

Unelected bureaucrats keep escalating the attacks on privacy and civil liberties—without public debate or knowledge and with very little, if any, legislative or judicial oversight.

In addition to their “Big Brother” quest for a free-pass into our private lives, they’ve created loopholes and gaps that thieves can penetrate to do us virtual, physical or financial harm.

In an effort to help dozens of government agencies access the troves of private telecommunications data it scoops up from foreigners and American citizens, the National Security Agency has its own “Google-like” search engine.

New information out from The Intercepta site dedicated to reporting on NSA activities — reveals that the spy agency’s databases have likely been routinely used by domestic law enforcement agencies such as the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Drug Enforcement Administration.

Your Privacy Has Been Compromised by Your Own Government – and you pay for it!

ICREACH has been accessible to more than 1,000 analysts at 23 U.S. government agencies that perform intelligence work, according to a 2010 memo. A planning document from 2007 lists the DEA, FBI, Central Intelligence Agency, and the Defense Intelligence Agency as core members. Information shared through ICREACH can be used to track people’s movements, map out their networks of associates, help predict future actions, and potentially reveal religious affiliations or political beliefs.

The creation of ICREACH represented a landmark moment in the history of classified U.S. government surveillance, according to the NSA documents.

“The ICREACH team delivered the first-ever wholesale sharing of communications metadata within the U.S. Intelligence Community,” noted a top-secret memo dated December 2007. “This team began over two years ago with a basic concept compelled by the IC’s increasing need for communications metadata and NSA’s ability to collect, process and store vast amounts of communications metadata related to worldwide intelligence targets.”

Until the most recent disclosures, it was unclear how and to what extent the NSA shares the massive amount of data it collects with other agencies. The search tool, described by the NSA as a “one-stop shopping tool,” pulls information stored in several databases authorized by President Ronald Reagan’s Executive Order 12333, which expanded the government’s data-collection authority.

While surveillance is supposed to target only foreign communication networks, domestic communication information can easily be swept up by the government snooping programs.

Again from The Intercept:

To allow government agents to sift through the masses of records on ICREACH, engineers designed a simple “Google-like” search interface. This enabled analysts to run searches against particular “selectors” associated with a person of interest—such as an email address or phone number—and receive a page of results displaying, for instance, a list of phone calls made and received by a suspect over a month-long period. The documents suggest these results can be used reveal the “social network” of the person of interest—in other words, those that they communicate with, such as friends, family, and other associates.

The sharing of information between the NSA and domestic law enforcement agencies all takes place without court oversight.

Vehicle To Vehicle Communication Requirements Could Give Government Control Over Personal Travel »
In the not-so-distant-future, American motorists could find the location, direction and speed of their automobiles constantly monitored by government officials as they travel. Recent filings reveal that the Department of Transportation is making the first steps toward requiring "vehicle to vehicle communications." More »


Congress is a Menace to Society        

A new Gallup study suggests that in recent elections, disapproval of Congress’ job performance meant higher turnout. Currently, Gallup’s congressional job approval is 13 percent, with 19 percent of registered voters saying members of Congress deserve re-election.


We are a nation in distress…


President Obama, the golfer-in-chief, has seen his approval rating plummet over his inability to resolve much of anything regarding international policy or our domestic economic challenges.

The big question:  Why do Americans continually reelect the same politicians into office?  Too many in Congress think they should be feeding at the public trough for life (EX:  New York’s Chuck Schumer has never had a real job in his life and has never fostered any meaningful legislation yet gets reelected based on what?]


Too many of us are asleep at the wheel and pay zero attention to how Congress has bankrupted our nation while eroding our rights, how Obama would rather be on the golf course while we’re invaded by illegals and terrorists overrun Iraq…if they’ve been in office since the internet was created It is time to get rid of them!


Something to consider:  flying the flag upside down is a sign of distress.  We should all fly our flag in that manner until we see those lifelong parasites in Congress torn away from the public teat.  I realize much of the population has been bamboozled by these con artists but this could be a small, symbolic way to demonstrate our extreme displeasure!


Yours in freedom,

Bruce ‘the Poor Man’
