"A little lie is like a little pregnancy:
it doesn't take long before everyone knows."
-- C. S. Lewis


As the patriot-hero Edward Snowden’s massive leak has shown is that the United Stasi of America is doing what we have long warned people against: collecting every email, text message, phone call, Internet visit, credit card purchase, Facebook post, cell phone location and so much more along with organizing these into dossiers which are permanently databased, archived and searchable forever.

Governments and corporations gather, store, and analyze the tremendous amount of data we chuff out as we move through our digitized lives. Often this is without our knowledge, and typically without our consent. Based on this data, they draw conclusions about us that we might disagree with or object to, and that can impact our lives in profound ways. We may not like to admit it, but we are under mass surveillance.


First, be aware you are being spied on and cognizant of some ways you leak personal information on the Internet and how to clean it up.

Second, you should already be using a VPN and Bitcoin so employ these principles and tactics to shift purchasing power to merchants that accept Bitcoin. Do not let firms like Stratfor compromise your personal information and render you increasingly vulnerable to identity theft.

Third, opt-out of unsolicited credit card offers. Get off their databases and away from these tracking devices. The borrower is servant to the lender, you are chained and naked with loan privacy disclosures, so avoid debt like you would avoid the plague.

Fourth, sign-up for the free How To Vanish email list and get the Free Privacy Guide. It has some extremely helpful and free tips for you to follow. Plus, you will get more tips on a regular basis.

Remember, spying costs money. Sure, they can print money out of thin air but eventually that privilege will come to an end. And with Bitcoin around that is likely to be sooner than before. Remember, using USD, EUR, Bitcoin, etc. is a political choice so opt for political privacy.

But even more than costing money it costs human resources to make any sense out of all the data. And the more human resources you can tie up following worthless and ineffectual trails the better. The more people who do this the higher the cost of spying exponentially rises while the return on investment, actionable or useful intelligence, gets lower and lower.

But why stop with you taking control of your privacy?

Fifth, understand the force multiplier effect of encryption and share this post with your friends. Spark a discussion and show each other privacy protecting techniques. Plus, it is fun introducing James Bond techniques into your life. Delude yourself and pretend that you actually matter enough to someone else to be spied on.


As Mr. Snowden’s efforts have shown; the State is working to obliterate your privacy. They want you naked in a petri dish. You must pro-actively work to protect your privacy. You must actually do something.

The Justice Department has taken a first step toward allowing judges to grant warrants for remote searches of computers located outside their district, or when the location is unknown. On Monday, the Judicial Conference Advisory Committee on Criminal Rules approved an amendment to Rule 41 by an 11-1 vote. The existing provision allows judges to approve search warrants only for material within the geographic bounds of their judicial district, but the FBI has said it needs the rule updated to address the increasingly complex digital realities of modern day.  Read more

Patriot Act-The most anti-freedom set of laws ever created in America
Privacy concerns potentially an obstacle to 1 June Patriot Act reauthorization

With the USA Patriot Act set to expire on 1 June, lawmakers are debating whether the bill, which allows the National Security Agency (NSA) to collect bulk metadata of U.S. phone records, should be extended. The act was last renewed in 2011, before former NSA contractor Edward Snowden revealed details of the U.S. intelligence agency's surveillance activities. The debate around the reauthorization of the Patriot Act focuses on Section 215 of the law, used by the NSA to mass collect phone records in an effort to locate terrorists who might be calling supporters in the United States.
