"It was government's position that the NSA could collect what-ever communications records it wanted to, without having to get a warrant because it could only be said to have acquired or obtained them, in the legal sense, if and when the agency "searched and retrieved" them from its database.

"Sniff It All" meant finding a data source; "Know It All" meant finding out what the data was; "Collect It All" meant capturing that data; "Process It All" meant analyzing that data for usable intelligence; "Exploit It All" meant using that intelligence to further the agency's aims; and "Partner It All" meant sharing the new data source with allies.

Much more revealing was an order I found from the FISA Court, a legal demand for a private company to turn over its customers' private information to the federal government. Orders such as these were notionally issued on the authority of public legislation; however, their contents, even their existence, were classified Top Secret.

According to Section 215 of the Patriot Act, aka the ''business records" provision, the government was authorized to obtain orders from the FISA Court that compelled third parties to produce "any tangible thing" that was "relevant" to foreign intelligence or terrorism investigations. But as the court order I found made clear, the NSA had secretly interpreted this authorization as a license to collect all of the "business records," or metadata, of telephone communications coming through American telecoms, such as Verizon and AT&T, on "an ongoing daily basis."

This included, of course, records of telephone communications between American citizens, the practice of which was unconstitutional." - Edward Snowden

"Modern communication systems like video are not constrained to linguistic patterns per se, but can instead juxtapose action and meaning.

Post-linguistic rather than non-linguistic because the technology necessary to construct these communications depend on linguistics and context.

The propaganda of the deed is most commonly imagined as terrorism, but can mean any dramatic or awe-inspiring action designed as communication.

In the past, the actions only affected those who were physically present.

If those not present were affected it was via a retelling.

Today's media environment, in which events and actions are filmed, associated with various emotional markers through juxtaposition, and shown directly to many people repeatedly, has widened the impact of these types of communication." - Edward Wilson & Wes Unruh

Telecom corporations broke the law by wiretapping Americans.

Rather than pay fines they bought off the political opposition for immunity:

AT&T contributed $8,191,618;

Verizon Communications contributed $6,830,000;

Qualcomm Inc. contributed $3,080,000;

Qwest Communications contributed $1,829,542 and;

Sprint/Nextel contributed $1,306,000.

Rahm Emmanuel receives $28,000;

Steny Hoyer receives $29,000;

Nancy Pelosi receives $24,500.

Telecoms responsible for breaking the law are granted retroactive immunity.

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 mass 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.
