NSA Creates Citizen Data Warehouse System
"The new Citizen Data Warehouse System (CDWS) will create a
containing detailed information about each US
citizen. Since the vast majority of
all US credit
card transactions will be fed through this new system,
the depth of
information will be unparalleled. Intelligent routing of this citizen data

will provide citizens

Analysts are told they can trace contacts of
Americans as long as they cite a foreign intelligence justification.
The National Security Agency has been exploiting huge collections of
data to create sophisticated graphs of Americans social connections to identify
associates, locations at certain times, traveling companions and other
The agency is authorized to conduct "large-scale
graph analysis on very large sets of communications metadata without having to
check foreignness" of every e-mail address, phone number or other
The agency augments the communications data with material
from public, commercial and other sources, including bank codes, insurance
information, Facebook profiles, passenger manifests, voter registration rolls,
GPS location information, as well as property records and unspecified tax data,
according to the documents.
There is no restrictions on the use of
"enrichment" data, and several former senior
officials said the agency drew on it for both Americans and foreigners.
Since the 1979 Supreme Court
ruling Americans have no expectation of privacy about what numbers they call.
The Justice Department and the Pentagon decided it was permissible to
create contact chains using Americans' "metadata," which includes the timing,
location and other details of calls and e-mails.
The agency is not
required to seek warrants for the analyses from the Foreign Intelligence
Phone and e-mail logs allow analysts to identify
associates, detect movement in time, acquire clues to religious or political
affiliations, pick up sensitive information like
regular calls to a
psychiatrist's office, late-night messages to an extramarital partner or
exchanges with a fellow plotter.
"Metadata can be very revealing," said

things like the number someone just dialed or the location of the person's
cellphone is going to allow them to assemble a picture of what someone is up
to. It's the digital equivalent of tailing a suspect."
The policy - "Defense
Supplemental Procedures Governing Communications Metadata Analysis" - was
authorized by Defense Secretary Robert M. Gates and Attorney General
Michael B. Mukasey.
Management Directive 424", November 2010 stated the
Supreme Court ruling metadata was not
constitutionally protected allowed collection.
Analysts, using metadata
"without regard to the nationality or location of the communicants" acquired
the conversations of foreign politicians, business figures or activists and
anyone else in the chain.
One of the main tools used for chaining phone
numbers and e-mail addresses has the code name Mainway.
Vast amounts of
data flow daily from fiber-optic cables, corporate partners and foreign
computer networks that have been hacked.
"Better Person Centric
Analysis" describes how the agency looks for 94 "entity types," including phone
numbers, e-mail addresses and IP addresses.
The NSA correlates 164
"relationship types" to build social networks and what the agency calls
"community of interest" profiles, using queries like "travelsWith, hasFather,
This web site is not a commercial web site and
is presented for educational purposes only.
This website defines a
new perspective with which to engage reality to which its author adheres. The
author feels that the falsification of reality outside personal experience has
forged a populace unable to discern propaganda from reality
and that this has been done purposefully by an international corporate cartel
through their agents who wish to foist a corrupt version of reality on the
human race. Religious intolerance occurs when any group refuses to tolerate
religious practices, religious beliefs or persons due to their religious
ideology. This web site marks the founding of a system of philosophy named The
Truth of the Way of the Lumière Infinie - a rational gnostic mystery
religion based on reason which requires no leap of faith, accepts no tithes,
has no supreme leader, no church buildings and in which each and every
individual is encouraged to develop a personal relation with the Creator and
Sustainer through the pursuit of the knowledge of reality in the hope of curing
the spiritual corruption that has enveloped the human spirit. The tenets of the
Truth of the Way of the Lumière Infinie are spelled out in detail on
this web site by the author. Violent acts against individuals due to their
religious beliefs in America is considered a "hate crime."
This web site
in no way condones violence. To the contrary the intent here is to reduce the
violence that is already occurring due to the international corporate cartels
desire to control the human race. The international corporate cartel already
controls the world economic system, corporate media worldwide, the global
industrial military entertainment complex and is responsible for the collapse
of morals, the elevation of self-centered behavior and the destruction of
global ecosystems. Civilization is based on coöperation. Coöperation
does not occur at the point of a gun.
American social mores and values
have declined precipitously over the last century as the corrupt international
cartel has garnered more and more power. This power rests in the ability to
deceive the populace in general through corporate media by pressing emotional
buttons which have been preprogrammed into the population through prior
corporate media psychological operations. The results have been the destruction
of the family and the destruction of social structures that do not adhere to
the corrupt international elites vision of a perfect world. Through distraction
and coercion the direction of thought of the bulk of the population has been
directed toward solutions proposed by the corrupt international elite that
further consolidates their power and which further their purposes.
