Broadcasting Private Information

"The government's been in bed with the entire telecommunications industry since the forties. They've infected everything. They get into your bank statements, computer files, email, listen to your phone calls...every wire, every airwave. The more technology used, the easier it is for them to keep tabs on you. It's a brave new world out there. At least it better be."
--Brill (Enemy of the State)

Judge Nap recounts outgoing Attorney General Loretta Lynch's recent actions to permit the NSA, which has been unconstitutionally collecting information about all Americans via its domestic spying apparatus, to pass along its raw spying data to all other federal intelligence agencies. Those agencies can then share that data with counterparts in foreign countries and in the fifty states.

By essentially permitting the federal government to broadcast private information, this administration has acted once again to move the needle further away from liberty and freedom.

We can only hope that the incoming administration, including the new AG, will act to reverse these wrongs.
