'Total Information Awareness' Reborn Under New Counterterrorism Guidelines

Brandon Turbeville
March 28, 2012
Activist Post

Only a day before Barack Obama signed the recent National Defense Resources Preparedness Executive Order giving himself and his Secretaries complete control over every material needed for human survival, Attorney General Eric Holder also signed new guidelines for the National Counterterrorism Center which will officially allow the NCTC to increase the amount of information gleaned from American citizens and the amount of time this information can be legally held.

The new guidelines lengthen the amount of time the NCTC can retain the private information of Americans who are not suspected of having any ties to terrorism from 180 days to five years.

Not only that, but the new guidelines have developed new “tracks” by which the NCTC can acquire information which is gathered by another agency. The tracks are thus: by conducting the search itself, by asking the other agency to conduct the search, or by “replicating the database and analyzing the information itself.”

In terms of commercial data such as credit cards and other forms of purchases, the guidelines are silent, leaving a gaping hole of broad interpretation that will no doubt be used in order to encompass every other possible piece of data available. That is, information that is not already being provided to the NCTC by private corporations who have obtained it via consumer records.

For those who are easily confused by legalese, these new “tracks” essentially open up the ability of the NCTC to acquire and centralize all information gathered by itself and other agencies in its entirety. Basically, the new guidelines allow for creation of a massive centralized database of information compiled on average, law-abiding Americans.

In essence, we are seeing the legal reaffirmation of the Total Information Awareness program in legal terms.

Total Information Awareness was initially announced to the American people by the Bush Administration as a way in which the U.S. government could identify hidden terrorist cells. The program involved casting an all-encompassing net in order to gather up all available information about every American citizen from phone calls and emails to shopping and eating habits. However, after much outcry and protest from both privacy organizations and concerned citizens, Congress moved to partially shut down the program in 2003.

Even though officials admit that the program was only partially shut down, the truth is that we would be foolish to believe that the program went anywhere other than underground. In a time where the CIA Director openly admits plans to spy on Americans through their home appliances, are we really to believe that the simple outrage of privacy groups and a few expressions of dissatisfaction by Congress would derail a plan such as Total Information Awareness?

Congressional opposition has little effect on decisions made within the halls of the shadow government. This much was demonstrated by the refusal of Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta when he refused to acknowledge the authority of Congress to grant approval for, or be informed of military action.

As Madison Ruppert of End The Lie writes, “Seeing as the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) seems to have absolutely no problem blatantly deceiving Congress, I see no reason to believe that the government would be upfront with the American people about anything these days. After all, they won’t even tell us why they have decided that it is legal to kill us.”

Indeed, it would be safe to say that the Total Information Awareness program was never ended -- not even partially. It would also be safe to say that the program did not begin with the Bush administration announcement. Systems such as this are universally light years ahead of the incarnations introduced to the general public for general consumption and, when implemented in the open, have in reality been active for many years prior.

Nevertheless, the announced aspects of the new guidelines are bad enough in their own right. Keep in mind, it is now official government policy to compile massive amounts of all-encompassing data about American citizens that have done absolutely nothing wrong. In fact, these Americans are not even suspected of doing anything wrong or even of having ties to someone who has.

Information to be gathered from individuals who are considered “potential terrorists,” “belligerents,” and “persons of interest,” however, is essentially unlimited. This goes back to numerous Executive Orders and legislation such as the Intelligence Reform and Terrorism Prevention Act, The Patriot Act, and the Anti-terrorism and Effective Death Penalty Act of 1996.

But the definitions of what labels one a “potential terrorist,” “belligerent,” or “person of interest” are so vast that they virtually negate the designation to begin with. One need only refer to the Patriot Act of 2001 to see that the definition of a “domestic terrorist” broadly includes individuals who engage in “acts dangerous to human life that are a violation of the criminal laws of the United States or of any State.” Under this definition, one could throw such behaviors as drunk driving into the category of terrorism.

Not only that, but consider the reports issued from the Department of Homeland Security such as the MIAC document where individuals who support third party political candidates, oppose the North American Union, New World Order, and abortion, as well as many other activists are categorized as potential violent terrorists. Similar reports coming out of offices such as the Joint Terrorism Task Force during the Clinton administration reflect the same sentiment when it categorizes individuals who support animal rights or believe in the apocalypse and the End Times.

More recently, however, the DHS “See Something, Say Something” program has propagandized that ordinary innocuous activities like wearing hoodies, driving vans, using a video camera, and even writing on paper are indicators of potential terrorism.

The Federal Government, via the Bureau of Justice Assistance has even begun distributing flyers to businesses all around the country with tips to help spot “potential domestic terrorists” including activities such as those listed above. You can view some of these flyers by going to the Public Intelligence website.

With all of this in mind, those who argue that the construction of such a massive monitoring and surveillance network only applies to terrorists and not innocent American citizens might develop a much different point of view if they were able to come to grips with the fact that the term “terrorism” itself has become so broad that it does, in fact, encompass innocent American citizens including themselves. Obviously, there is a bigger agenda at work here.

The policy changes signed by Eric Holder are not simply some mundane bureaucratic initiative. But, while we should not be so naïve as to think that the Total Information Awareness program was actually scrapped after opposition from Congress, we should also not lose sight of the fact that the program is once again being rolled out in the open. This time, there seems to no opposition whatsoever. 

Combined with the increased militarization of law enforcement, the growing technological surveillance grid, and the shadow legal system being created with such an array of freedom-crushing legislation and executive orders, a “minor” policy change such as the one mentioned in this article should be understood in a much wider context. If the American people do not soon recognize what is happening right in front of their faces, then it is clear that we will soon find ourselves in an Orwellian nightmare from which we are incapable of awaking.

Wave of Banking Resignations Likely Foreshadows Financial Collapse

Brandon Turbeville
Activist Post
March 24, 2012

On March 20, 2012, I wrote an article entitled “Worldwide Banking Resignations Triple According To Revised Numbers: Why Now?” which listed the latest banking, CEO, and financial institution resignations as compiled by independent blog, American Kabuki. At the time of the writing of that article, the list of resignations had reached a total of 358.

This was in fact the third article I had written on the subject; the second being a discussion on the statistics provided by American Kabuki regarding the average number of resignations in years past compared to those currently being announced which, if the information is correct, skyrocketed in late 2011.

In all three of the articles in which I addressed this topic, I ended the piece by asking the obvious question -- “Why?”

Why are so many bankers, board members, and CEOs suddenly resigning from their posts? More specifically, why are they resigning now?

Unfortunately, as of this writing, these questions remain unanswered. In fact, there is not even a hint as to why this mass exodus is occurring. Nevertheless, let us briefly consider a few possibilities.

Initially, one might suspect that these individuals, acting on some sort of insider information (which they are obviously doing), are exiting the ranks of institutions that will soon be the focus of a massive investigation by relevant authorities. One might logically suspect that the rats are jumping ship to save their own skins which will be all the more in danger if they remain in their positions when the investigation begins.

However, although this may be one of the first reasons for such resignations that come to mind, upon further examination, one finds some major holes in this theory.

For instance, if one has been part of a major crime (as the vast majority of these institutions have been), it is not likely that the mere prospect of being retired or employed by another institution would prevent prosecution once that crime has come to light.

In fact, one might be better served by remaining on board so as to be in an even better position by which to cover up evidence and confound the investigators. That is, if one did not think the effort completely hopeless. Keep in mind, many individuals who were in a position to provide or deny evidence regarding the record put options on American Airlines, United Airlines, and Morgan Stanley Dean Witter shortly before 9/11, would not have been able to remain stone silent if they had not remained in their position so that they could be deputized during the investigation.

Of course, if one did find a cover-up to be impossible, it is also likely that one would resign in “protest,” being “appalled” at the corruption witnessed inside the institution. Yet, with that in mind, it should be noted that there have been very few “protest” resignations announced in the latest wave of departures.

It is almost universally recognized that large banking institutions are rife with corruption, fraud, and predatory practices. The 2008 housing crisis is case in point. Here, large institutions were intentionally giving loans that were nothing more than ticking time bombs to recipients whom they knew would never be able to repay them. Indeed, it was found that the majority of these loans were completely fraudulent from the start with the borrowers being fooled into accepting them. Not only that, but the 2008 housing crisis was merely a smokescreen cover for the larger crisis of derivatives looming above them – another banker-engineered scam that is threatening to bring down the world economy at some point in the near future. (See Webster G. Tarpley’s excellent book, Surviving The Cataclysm to understand the full extent to which derivatives threaten the world economy.)

But it was the agencies such as the SEC, who are tasked with policing such behavior, that allowed much of this criminality to continue over and over for decades. Punishments have been minute where they have been meted out at all, and the transfer of wealth from the average American to the coffers of the large international banks has been facilitated by no other institution more so than the Federal government.

The Federal Reserve, itself a cartel of private international banks, stood to gain nothing by acting in the interests of the American people, and they have acted in obvious knowledge and accordance with this fact.

Therefore, with such massive levels of corruption in every regulatory agency tasked with policing private banks, it seems there is little concern that a real, large-scale, investigation with real, large-scale repercussions for the criminals being investigated will actually occur. Obviously, if there is no looming investigation, then our first supposition regarding the resignations begins to lose its steam.

That is, of course, unless the information provided by individuals like David Wilcock and Benjamin Fulford turns out to be true. Likewise for the lawsuits filed by Neil Keenan and Joseph Riad.

However, having mentioned the looming derivatives bubble, there is also the suggestion that many of those resigning are simply bailing out before the rocket ship they rode to riches crashes back down to earth, taking all of the little people with it.

Whether it is what now seems to be the foregone conclusion of WW3 in the Middle East, derivatives, IMF shock therapy, simple default, subversion, societal unrest, or even natural disasters, one thing is almost for certain – the house of cards known as the “economy” is going to fall.

There is little doubt that many of the individuals now cashing in their chips would be in a position to know when that collapse is coming, and others may see it coming simply by watching the signs of the times. Whether it’s the attitude of “Get out while you can,” or “Our work here is done,” there seems to be a growing trend of aristocrats rushing for the exits while the rest of us stand around in amazement wondering just what is going on.

But there is also the possibility that the resignation stampede is not a stampede at all, but something much more orderly. While an economic collapse seems imminent, perhaps the banking lords are neither abandoning ship nor rearranging the deck chairs on their sinking vessel -- perhaps they are simply rearranging the corporate structure.

Perhaps many of those who have recently announced their resignation are not pulling out of the game entirely, but merely warming the bench for a return when the next play is called for them. Simply put, what if those who are now resigning are only waiting to take up new positions in some other institution?

Going one step further, however; what if, in addition to an economic collapse, there is also a coming merger that will make some of their current positions obsolete? Remember, we have been hearing calls for world government structures and mechanisms of “global governance” for some time.

Much like the snowballing number of resignations in recent months, we have also been hearing a flurry of calls for a world banking system that will control not just world finance but the monetary and fiscal policies of every nation on the planet.

Of course, I am not claiming that any of these ruminations are definite answers to why so many resignations have occurred in such a short period. I am merely presenting some of the more heavily pondered suggestions with reasons for why they might be true (or not).

The truth is, as I stated earlier, that we simply do not know the reason why. At this point, we can only speculate that something significant is taking shape. Yet the fact is also that, whatever the cause, those resigning their positions do know the reasons why, even if they only know their own personal reasons. This information would likely be very helpful to those of us who are not part of the elite global cabal.

Please feel free to leave your suggestions in the comments section below as to why you think so many resignations have recently been announced.

Worldwide Banking Resignations Triple According to Revised Numbers: Why Now?

Brandon Turbeville
Activist Post
March 20, 2012

On March 6, 2012, I wrote an article entitled “Mass Banking Resignations Signal A Purging Has Begun?” where I included a list of banking directors, CEOs, and board members of both national and international financial institutions standing who have resigned from their post since September 2011. The data was collected and compiled by independent blog American Kabuki and posted online complete with a description of the individual, location, and link to the resignation announcement where it was covered in the mainstream media.

At the time my article was posted, the list had already topped 122. This prompted many, including myself, to question whether or not 122 was actually such a large number, given that there are many national and international institutions across the globe, as well as the fact that these resignations took place within a span of a period of about five months.

Certainly, the number seemed enormous. 
Apparently American Kabuki had the same questions. Only a few weeks after the initial posting, the blogger posted a chart that included the number of resignations filed with the SEC, as required by the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, going back to 2008 and in to the fourth quarter of 2011. Tracing the resignations back to 2008 would, obviously, provide something close to a representative sample of the normal rate of resignation over a period of three years.

What these statistics revealed was a staggering increase in the number of resignations announced around the second and third quarters of 2011.

I included this chart, along with some commentary, in my article “Why Are Bankers Jumping Ship In Record Numbers, Financial Collapse Imminent?” Please see this article in order to understand the specifics of the statistics presented by American Kabuki’s research. Or, view American Kabuki’s own presentation here

However, chart or no chart, the recently revised number regarding resignations from financial firms, banks, etc. seems to put many of the questions to rest.

Indeed, a recent post by American Kabuki now shows that the number of resignations stand at 358, almost triple the number originally posted.

The revised list of resignations will be included at the end of this article along with the links to the announcements.

With all of this in mind, and, if the research provided by American Kabuki is correct, then the only question really left for us to ask is “Why?”

Why are so many bankers, CEOs, fund managers, and investors resigning all at once? Why now?

One might be tempted to ask whether or not there is a coming investigation that these individuals are trying to avoid but, given the track record of the regulatory system, this is not our most likely option. Considering the current state of the economy, it might seem more logical to ask if these individuals are not trying to abandon ship before the collapse of the world financial system finally takes place.

Or it could be something entirely different. At this point, we simply do not know. Regardless, something big is obviously happening in the financial world and the forces behind it are acting on information that the general public is unaware of.
