2 Underhanded Ways The FBI Spies On You

fbi-spyThe FBI (Federal Bureau of Investigation) are the go-to guys for the United States Department of Justice (DOJ) for whenever they want to snoop around someone or something in great detail.

They’re basically the head honchos of law enforcement here in the United States – the King of Cops. Their motto is “Fidelity, Bravery, Integrity” … though I sometimes doubt that last one.

That’s because during their criminal investigations, ordinary innocents like you and me get caught in the crossfire. Not only is this a serious breach of your privacy, but if they don’t like what they see (and it seems these days that could mean anything)… it could be the beginning of the end for your little enterprise.

There’s a widespread internet surveillance technique the FBI is using right now to collect a steady stream of data on Americans. Every last one of us.

It doesn’t matter who you are or what you’re doing – the FBI’s got their fingers in your pot of honey. And it’s high time you know what their game is, so you can tilt the scales of justice back in your favor.

Sex, Lies, and Videotape

If you listen to their propaganda, er… I mean “official statements” on the matter, it’s easy to walk away believing they really are only out to grab the secrets of legitimate criminal suspects, then go back and use this data as evidence in their investigations.

But in reality what happens is they gather internet information on thousands and thousands of people at the same time (that means you, whether you’re involved or not), lock it up in some remote government database and practically throw away the key.

These information stockpiles are held indefinitely, which means any “questionable” online activity you did years ago can come back to bite you anytime in the future.

And nowadays, who’s to say what “questionable” really means? Especially as Uncle Sam seems to clamp his bony death grip around our throats a little tighter with each passing year.

The information they have on you includes your name, e-mail address, and what you like to search for on Google, Yahoo, MSN and others. Sadly, it doesn’t take a genius to translate that information into more sensitive data like your home address, date of birth, or social security number. From there, the sky’s the limit.

The Software That Started It All

Years ago the FBI developed an in-house software system called Carnivore, which was later renamed to DCS 1000. (I guess they figured a name like “Carnivore” was a little too close to the truth.) But even Carnivore is child’s play compared to the wicked deal they’ve now made with the devil.

The “devil” in this case is your Internet Service Provider (ISP) – the likes of AOL, Yahoo, or even the rinky-dink local outfits spread all over the country. They’ve all sworn the legal equivalent of a blood oath to routinely betray your trust and privacy by handing over any and all logged information to the FBI.

Some people call this the “vacuum cleaner” method because they suck up everything in sight. I say it just sucks, period.

Once this data is in-hand, they run it through sophisticated software to crank out a clear list of web browsing habbits, e-mail communications, and instant messaging conversations.

A lot of academic types scream this is a serious violation of our 4th Amendment search and seizure rights under the Constitution. It’s the modern-day version of British redcoats storming every house in the neighborhood to flush out a lone gunman they think “might” have done something wrong.

And that, my friends, makes them wrong.

Oh, and get this…

The FBI doesn’t even use Carnivore anymore. Abandoned the project years ago. Why? Did Santie Claus punish them for being bad little girls and boys? Did they have a change of heart and become White Knights of Justice?

No, of course not.

They did what any modern American organization would do: they outsourced it.

Because even the Federal Bureau of Investigation knows private enterprise can do things far better, faster, and cheaper than dear ol’ Uncle Sam could ever dream of.

It’s ironic how the wonders of our private enterprise system – the very thing that has brought us generations of wealth and happiness – harbors a growing cancer that will destroy us all from within if left unchecked.

The First Steps To Secure Your Online Privacy

#1. Make it harder on government goons by connecting to the internet through Anonymizer.

When you’re on the internet, your computer is identified primarily through a unique number called an IP address (Internet Protocol Address.) What Anonymizer does is connect you through their vast pool of IP addresses and swaps your online identity for a new one every few minutes, making it a royal pain in the ass for any bloodhound to sniff you out from all the rubble.

#2. If you’re worried about internet searches, try Scroogle.

What Scroogle does is perform Google searches on your behalf and sends back the results. I wouldn’t do this for everything, but if you’re wanting to search a “questionable” topic you’d rather keep hush-hush, this is one way to mask it.

#3. To mask sensitive browsing, try Anonymouse.

Anonymouse will actually browse the web on your behalf and then send you back the results. Whereas Scroogle handles search results, this allows you to browse anywhere with a relatively good measure of privacy protection.

However, these basics are only the beginning. To truly construct a privacy forcefield around your life now and into the future, our own Joe Decameron has mapped out a complete plan for you to do just that. Check out The Perfect Privacy Solution for more details.
