Here's What Happens When Someone Wants To Use YOUR "PUBLIC" INFO To INTIMIDATE YOU.

It's unnecessary to review all the diaries on the subject of the NSA, the recent postal service info and so on. You've either read them or you haven't. If you have, perhaps you've taken a position on whether or not this is all a bunch of hysterical people with their hair on fire over nothing, or it's a window into uncontrolled surveillance of peoples private lives that violates our rights and need for privacy in our lives. Let me point you to how the GOP in North Carolina is using people's data to intimidate them...now...today...and possibly with government assistance.






If you've been following current events in North Carolina you know the recently empowered GOP legislature (and GOP governor) have been on a roll to slash and burn healthcare, unemployment benefits, taxes on the wealthy and corporations, and more. Yesterday they attached, and passed in the Senate, a very restrictive abortion clause to a bill about "Sharia Law." (This particularly odious action was cleverly designed to hopefully pass below the horizon of public view and opinion, but did not...although the protestors were told to be quiet because the only voices that mattered were those of the Senators.) In response, thousands of North Carolinians have gone to the capital building to peacefully protest. Hundreds have been arrested...booked, finger-printed...mug shots...the whole banana. These are the Moral Monday protestors we're talking about...good citizens from all walks of life.




Lo and behold, the Civitas Institute..a right-wing "think tank" and public policy influence organization founded and financed by Gazillionaire retailer Art Pope...who is also the appointed NC Budget Director...immediately put up several web pages with all the collected info on the arrested protestors. You can see it here, but I ask that you read on before going back to the Civitas site... http://www.nccivitas.org/. When you do visit this steaming pile of crap, be sure to page through the various options to see how they've turned intimidation into a game. So...you're a good citizen peacefully protesting...you're arrested for trespassing...and now here you are on the intertoobs...your name, address, sex, age, race, party, occupation, employer, salary if available, alleged voter registration violation (address not matching registration)....etc. There has been some speculation as to just how the Civitas folks were able to get all the data so rapidly...implying possible cooperation from someone in government.



Now, just for fun, imagine if the Civitas folks had all your postal, internet, email, and financial "meta data" and they listed some carefully selected magazines you subscribe to..web sites you visit...places where you've made purchases and how much you spent, you name it. Innocent or not...and none of their business...they could twist this to make anyone look like whatever they choose. John Q. Smith...subscribes to xyz magazine, spent money at the xyz club, was delinquent on property taxes last year, buys books on the following subjects...mother in nursing home under medicaid yet purchased a $900 xyz last week....sends emails twice a week to woman in Soviet Union... You name it... A totally misleading picture could be constructed to try someone in the court of public opinion. Doesn't matter if the magazine is Playboy or Forbes, the club is a "gentlemans club" or a golf club...it all depends on the story they're trying to construct for their audience. Heck, they could make someone look bad or suspicious for darn near anything...and it's none of their damn business even if technology has made it available. Now...go look at the Civitas stuff. Then decide whether or not you want to let the government, and by association those entities involved with the government or politics ...who might not like you for some reason....to have unfettered, unjustified, and pervasive access to your daily life and activities.

Russ Tice from NSA said NSA has already been doing this to politicians and judges to the highest level for 10 years. it's all about leverage and blackmail to get them to play the game. I wonder if John Edwards boondoggle was known about by NSA...he was the only candidate that was talking about TWO Americas and TWO systems of justice.

111. I can only imagine what kind of dirt NSA has on politicians in France, Italy, Portugal, and Spain to

force them into violation of Vienna convention.

On a related note:

The imbeciles who are arguing that incident with Bolivian presidential plane wasn't a big deal seemingly can't comprehend the enormity of the situation.
It only takes ONE incident to set a precedent. From now on there is no doubt whatsoever that Vienna convention is 'just a piece of paper' and not a binding agreement.

Every single arsehole who was involved in that incident should be fucking charged by now and get their arses dragged into Hague and made an example of with the most severe and swift punishment avalable.

More than anything I want to know what is it that US government thinks Snowden has? I can hardly imagine anyone going apeshit at such spectacular level without much better reason than what was leaked already.

Some people would excuse pedophilia or murder if they thought it might cast a bad light on their favorite administration. Unless people start supporting only what is right instead of a 'team' then nothing will ever change. Of course Morales was illegally 'detained'...for all the little people out there, if you lock someone I'm a closet you will get charged with felony kidnapping. Nitpickers are such hypocrites.

I wonder if they realize how they sound when they argue FOR those policies?

So here's my opinion, THEY are the collaborators who are making the loss of our rights possible. I don't really blame the criminals, criminals do what they do and we were supposedly prepared to recognize them when they came along.

I blame the collaborators, those who excuse criminal behavior, who choose to hand over their rights to criminal elements, blindly and willingly, because without them, this would not be happening.

48. I beleive it all starts with "the haunting fear that someone, somewhere, may be happy"

in a way that is not approved by the authoritarians. 'Happy' in this case includes everything - way of life, beliefs, political affiliation, you name it. It doesn't matter if what you do doesn't affect them directly, the actual idea that you are doing it is enough to make them want to stop you from doing it.

The only way to control that is by supporting a wide set of countermeasures, typically called 'laws', but only those that are approved by authoritarians of course.

This is why I am not buying the 'we need it to fight terrorism' BS. Like fuck they do. They want an ability to control everyone and gathering data about everyone is the best way to control them.

The most laughable part is that little authoritarian enablers honestly believe they have nothing to fear because they support the "government".

83. What we have here is an infestation of Quislings.

A quisling (/ˈkwɪzlɪŋ/; Norwegian pronunciation: [ˈkʋɪsˈlɪŋ]) is a person who collaborated with Axis forces in occupied Allied countries during World War II - including members of fascist and collaborationist political parties and military and paramilitary forces. In contemporary usage, quisling is synonymous with traitor, and particularly applied to politicians who appear to favour the interests of other cultures (as in 1 percent/corporate cultures) over their own (99 percent).

The term quisling was coined by the British newspaper The Times in an editorial published on 19 April 1940, entitled "Quislings everywhere" after the Norwegian Vidkun Quisling, who assisted Nazi Germany as it conquered his own country so that he could rule the collaborationist Norwegian government himself. The Daily Mail picked up the term four days later, and the BBC then brought it into common use internationally. The Times' editorial asserted: "To writers, the word Quisling is a gift from the gods. If they had been ordered to invent a new word for traitor... they could hardly have hit upon a more brilliant combination of letters. Aurally it contrives to suggest something at once slippery and tortuous."
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Quisling

And the rationalizations put forth in support of NSA massive data gathering is indeed slippery and tortuous!

But Vidkun Abraham Lauritz Jonssøn Quisling got his due - he got shot at Akershus Fortress and Castle in 1945 - for the treason he did - when he was collaborating with the German occupying forces who hold Norway from 9 april 1940 - to may 8 1945 (even though the last german soldiers was not leaving Norway before October the same year)

It might end the same way with the enablers in the US too - they got their due when due process is finished..

Many of them should indeed end up in prison - both the bankers - and the war profiteers from the many wars the US are involved in...

I would not be surprised if the NSA, or the outsourced groups who do the job at the behalf of NSA, do sell info to corporations for money - it is a way of give the NSA "dark money" who they can use outside of national control.. NSA, the CIA and most of the other alphabet soup who is part of the US "security system" is far out of control for any civilian government today....

And that is absolutely a danger - when they also have the knowledge about your inner toughs or your personal money....

and change the law.

Woops! We can't. Why? Because the law is SECRET. We don't even know what it says.

That's one reason that this law and the activities performed under it are unconstitutional and therefore worse than illegal (if there is a worse that is illegal).

How can you petition the government to change a law if the law is secret and you can't even know what it says?

90. Under the First Amendment to our Constitution, we have the guaranteed right to petition the governme

U.S. Constitution

Amendment I

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances.

http://www.law.cornell.edu/constitution/first_amendment

The American right of petition is derived from British precedent. In Blackstone's Comment, Last published in 1765, Americans in the Thirteen Colonies read that "the right of petitioning the king, or either house of parliament, for the redress of grievances" was a "right appertaining to every individual."[3]

In 1776, the Declaration of Independence cited King George's perceived failure to redress the grievances listed in colonial petitions, such as the Olive Branch Petition of 1775, as a justification to declare independence:

In every stage of these Oppressions We have Petitioned for Redress in the most humble terms: Our repeated Petitions have been answered only by repeated injury. A Prince, whose character is thus marked by every act which may define a Tyrant, is unfit to be the ruler of a free people.[4]

Historically, the right can be traced back[2] to English documents such as Magna Carta, which, by its acceptance by the monarchy, implicitly affirmed the right, and the later Bill of Rights 1689, which explicitly declared the "right of the subjects to petition the king."[5]

More:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Right_to_petition_in_the_United_States

Thus, secret courts that issue secret laws or rulings violate our right.

While I was reading downward in your reply, agreeing with your words, I kept saying to myself... the Magna Carta... the Magna Carta... and there it was.

We ought to be able to take free U.S. History classes online and better yet free classes on Constitutional Law. And if there is one for each or both of them, why don't I know about it? Hell, it might be a good thing to sign up all of three branches of government to take these classes, since it seems like they have forgot all of it. Either that or there's another Constitution that they're working from and I would love to see that thing!

You have an excellent grasp of U.S. History. I don't know why some are put off and are bored by history. Takes all kinds, I guess. I think the reason I have always liked it is because I was very close to my old grandmother who was sharp as a tack. She was born in 1880. She would tell me stories about when she was a little girl, with no TV or radio. It was like a living history class when I was around her...

I haven't felt altogether comfortable with Anonymous doxing people. It can focus attention on the guilty, but it's also been known to misfire and harm the innocent. However, any attempt to criminalize it would become just one more tool of repression.

Using certain words that will attract more hits etc. And than another website, a Hall of Shame, featuring the faces of the criminals who are responsible for this.

From the beginning it seemed obvious that the Massive Surveillance programs they are trying to pass off as for our 'security', had nothing to do with security.

The scandal they are trying so hard to cover up is that this data mining is all for Business purposes. I wonder how much they paid to get that information?

And who sold it to them?

Is the one of the first glimpses into what this Surveillance program is all about? If only we had some good investigative reporters, like Mike Hastings RIP, who could dig into this and expose this massive scam that is actually being defended right here on DU.

I can't believe the # of people on this progressive site that are actually saying that they don't have a problem with our big brother surveillance state. Don't know whether it's because Obama is president so there certainly couldn't be anything currently wrong with it or they have no imagination, foresight or knowledge of history - probably there's both kinds.

Government regulation is what stops the 1% from dumping sludge in our waters at will, failing to at least pay a worker what was promised, etc. To bash the government, particularly in response to a post about what a private right wing individual did, is just insanity and shows how well the Republican anti-government meme has taken hold in our society.

You offer absolutely no evidence for the inflammatory assertion that the government "aids and abets" Pope to put up this website. The government has nothing to do with his website. Pope is an anti-government nutbag. The government did not target him with tax cuts just so he could put up his website. Everyone got tax cuts, including the middle class, under Obama. The government did not give Pope "financial/legal assistance" to start the website. How about you direct your anger at Pope, who actually did this?

73. Whoa, a voice of reason on this thread.

If I remember correctly the democrats were for a strong government to keep the wealthy from oppressing the poor.

Apparently that's accusing them 'their hair is on fire'.

It seems to me that emails between the scumbags at Enron revealed when that scandal broke just what kind of despicable shenanigans went on.

I want the government to have legal authority to subpoena electronic documents when big business is trying to screw the people over. I guess that makes me pro-surveillance.

It's a question of where do you draw the line. Are the 'hair on fire crowd' unknowingly fighting for the bankers. Are they fighting to prevent the 'behind closed doors deals' that the bankers used to coordinate the crash from coming to light if the democrats do gain control of the house after the next election and vote to fund Dodd-Frank? Or is this 'debate' engineered to prevent the democrats from taking over the house? I guess we will see.

It's like the sweet little old ladies who wanted to make this a better country by prohibiting the manufacture and consumption of alcohol. They couldn't have known that the mob would be the ones that benefitted. Of course now we have the knowledge of how prohibition didn't really benefit the people who fought for it, and it happened to the 'tort reform' folks too. You'd think people would try to let this play out in their minds with some kind of similar historical incident.

That isn't enough to get people to stop and think about who is really going to benefit if the 'hair on fire folks' get their way, whatever that is. Can somebody tell me where they think this is all going to lead? It looks like an anti-government campaign to me too.

Booz Allen did not give Pope these records. The arrest records in questions are held by the local arresting authorities in NC. They are available to everyone. You can't get them from the NSA, nor can you get from the NSA what you can get from Google. The data the NSA is collecting is telephone meta data, and it is not available to you or any private citizen via a FOIA request. Again, the NSA has nothing to do with this incident.

They take all this meta data and twist it to something that makes it sound like these dastardly protesters are just the scum of the earth. Who knows where they got all this data. Maybe they got it all at intertoob sources that any of us could find "for free". But, boy, there sure is a bunch of data collected on people who some in power might not like.

But I can't imagine in a free America and all that ANYONE would EVER try to get their hands on that information. So you can defend the people who have collected this stuff on you, and me, and everyone else, but ultimately whoever does this without a warrant has violated Constitutional law.

between a right wing millionaire who has bought his position in govt (as well as buying the State house and its reps), combined with Citizens United, and assisted by Ed Gillespie ('member him?) and the govt he bought and paid for are the parents of this.

Take a moment and read a bit about Mr. Pope:

Art Pope Exposed
Pope, Citizens United, and NC
Art Pope, Koch Bros, and owning NC

NC is owned and operated by Art Pope, period. And NC is not the only state owned and operated by the 1%. I do hope you read the links and follow to see how not only the State govts, but our very Federal govt are being assimilated and operated by Corporations - the 1%.

Last edited Tue Jul 9, 2013, 01:47 AM - Edit history (1)

I read your three previous links. Really. I was not feigning ignorance. The info was not in the 3 links you first provided. Of those three links, the first (and I watched the 2 minute video) talked about his Koch connections, about how he basically funds Republicans in NC. The remaining 2 links were from 2011 and said nothing about the budget director position; as your new link points out, he did not join McCrory's cabinet until January of 2013.

I wasn't sure what you were trying to say, it seemed that you were suggesting Pope did not do this and that instead some NC bureaucrat posted the site. I've been going back and forth with someone one one this thread who insists the NSA is to blame. I honestly thought you were going there as well since you jumped into the same subthread.

Regardless, we appear to be in agreement. Pope is the person behind the Civitas webpage. He probably does have easy access to state info, but seems all of the info he posted could be gotten through public records law requests. And he does not need to do illegal surveillance to get it. Arrest records are publicly available records. It appears that everything on that Civitas site is stuff you could dig up with an internet search.

Is there something on the Civitas site that could only be obtained from private state records? If so, is there an NC law that protects those records from being released--something that Pope could be charged with violating? I'm just asking. I'm not from NC. I know there are such laws here in CA.

116. I don't know if he accessed State held info or not, but I do know that Bossism is alive & well in NC

And the history of political bosses is well documented in that they have used inside information to harm their enemies. Like you, I'm from CA - I'm north of you in central Cali, so NC is foreign to me too.

I do know that the right-wing machine ugliness has no limitations, and it's my belief, based on the history of Pope's actions to buy the State and his work to suppress the vote, that he's one of the ugliest. Bossism has been around since democracy was put in action, and it's well documented that where political bosses own those in power, that power is abused.

It's the 1%, it's the right-wing that owns at least 2 branches of our govt, and the executive is policy driven by the Third Way... we do know, for instance, that the executive branch did in fact access CIA information to illegally expose Valerie Plame. Cheney did so without any consequences - he got away with it lock, stock, and barrel. I fully expect Pope and Co. to use any and all smear tactics to harm their perceived enemies, and so nothing surprises me when I learn about tactics such as Civitas. It's nasty, dirty, and goes against the concepts of fair play that we all learn as kids.

Boss Pope is sending a message with the Civitas site. He's trying to intimidate. And unless people speak up and expose his machinations, the people of NC and this country will continue to lose their voices and freedom of expression.

And so I guess we do agree on Pope and Civitas - the full truth will be revealed at some point, or so I hope. Context is everything, and I should have read more thoroughly before posting. Sorry about that. 5:00 am comes early, and so it's bed for me. G'night.

Congress would have if they had not transferred their duties to Private Corporations like Booz Allen.

Think of the multiple, and profitable purposes this data mining can be used for. As you pointed out, to control the people, and the occasional Whistle Blower and courageous Public Official who might foolishly decide to speak out. And the money, first from the funding they get from their puppets in Congress under the pretext that it 'will catch terrorists'.

Then they SELL the info to other Private Corps, like HB Gary eg, who were proposing a smear campaign against Glenn Greenwald, to 'persuade him' to stop talking about The Chamber of Commerce etc. Looks like someone got that contract.

I think the whole scandal they are so desperate to hide is that none of this was ever about our security or about terrorists, it was to USE the fear mongering to sell the data and you can imagine, as Ron Wyden said, how angry the people will be when they find out the massive scam they have been subjected to.

14. We've been here since 2000. Remember, NC went for Obama in 2008

so, the majority of people really aren't Jesse Helms clones.

More people voted in 2012 for Dem candidates to the House of Representatives
but due to the gerrymandering by Repubs after the 2010 election, Repubs ended
up elected by about a 2 to 1 margin.

There are a lot of moderates in the state. They bought the McCrory BS that he
was a moderate and are now sorry they did.

The Moral Monday protesters are not all left leaning Dems. There are people
joining in who say they've voted Republican their entire lives.

Unfortunately, we are stuck with the gang of right wing zealots until 2014.
NC is one of 12 states without access to recall.

High education/high population counties like Durham, Orange, Buncombe, Wake and Mecklenburg
consistently vote Democratic.

So while I would agree with you that there are too many Jesse Helms clones in the state
I wouldn't go so far as to call the entire state a cesspool. But if you wanted to apply
that description to the current General Assembly, I would agree with you!

16. an inevitable devolution of the mugshot extortion sites

 

throughout much of the coutry, web sites pick up mug shots from sheriff departments, and p-lace them on their sites for entertainment. they also make their site with the mugshot the first return on google if a person's name is googled

for an 'administration fee' of usually $100, you can get the mugshot taken down

raw extortion right out in the open, and the gov depts that feed the info couldnt care less

and this happens even if the person is not convicted, and ends up never having ever been convicted of anything, in their entire lives

(I havnt been arrested, this hasnt happened to me, but i do believe in the 'First they came fore
the...' principal)

You'd better believe I dont trust them with 100 percent data collection

what you see in the OP, is just one more roll of 'The Blob'

19. I'm actually kind of glad this happened so soon

 

not because I wanted injustice for these people, but because I was certain this was going to happen.

I didnt think it was possible, likely or probable, but as certain as death and taxes, and I was also certain that as long as it was presented as anything less that 100 percent proof that it had already happened, that the majority of people would dismiss it as paranioa

If people knew XYZ group had access to the everyone's phones and emails, it would be a simple matter to forge one making it look like you'd done anything they wanted and most people would believe it.

22. police logs and internet searches.

 

Most of that basic info can be gotten from public police logs. No surprise. But the other information isnt really that hard to get either. I randomly checked 6 of the names the site had salary info for & every single one of those people is on Linkedin.com. I do not have an account there, so I cant see the "full profiles" but I can see where they work, where they went to college, etc. I didnt even bother to check their facebook profiles, which is usually also a plethora of information.

Therefore, its possible that most of this info came from the people putting it out there themselves. If I can find it, anyone can.

123. As well it should be. I remember when in Texas one

 

need read off the plate number of someone's auto and the live operator using a new-fangled computer read us back name & house number. Great for getting a mailing address for billing, deliveries, and such. Great, too, for exes with murderous intent, the reason that "public information" went confidential.

Now, we only have newspapers trying to pry out concealed-carry license records so that they may baldly assist controller/banners in their schemes to "shame," "stigmatize," and "ostracize" neighbors for reasons not known until a scarlet list was posted everywhere.

Yeah, the precedents are like clowns: "They're already here." (Joni Mitchell)

37. NC Budget Director has the time to bully every protestor. Art Pope= hateful, anti-usa.

I wish there were millions of protestors. In small groups they can handle 100 arrests, they won't be able to arrest 10,000 people a week.

Tell Art Pope to quit slacking on his state budget job because he's going to have to add millions to cover Americans RIGHT to protest.

49. Last week, I received an email and text about a credit card purchase

Called and discovered someone had tried to use it at a Walmart in Arkansas. It was declined and no idea what they were trying to buy. But an online purchase at something called Gun America or something similar had gone through. God knows what they bought and thank Goddess it's corrected now.
But that's the type of info that could be collected and attached to someone and if that's ever done on the Internet, it is, up there forever.
Databases are not error free and they make it possible for those errors to replicated so many times that it's hard to catch and correct it all, if you even know where the multiple bad entries are. Even those people who say they have 'nothing to hide' could have something that could be viewed or twisted onto being 'suspicious' listed and connected to them.

And it's clear there are unscrupulous people who would do just like the GOP in NC and try to use it to attack.

60. Now with the new Roberts Voting Resolution, predetermined person can be pulled

out of the voting line, detained, searched, charged with a felony. In my opinion, secret societies like Mr. Pope supports, are past voter purger lists. I believe that now a GOP Governor can call out a state militia to look for these people. After the election, they will be released on down graded minor charges. I think that the scenario that I am describing here is a facsimile of the treatment of poor minorities in the South after the Civil War, and is again to happen today, being made possible by the recent SCOTUS majority of five.

Corporatist know that they must win the next election. Registering to vote is not private and will be turned over to secret societies within the government. Damn the 1% for harvesting out lives.

61. Much worse can happen. Ask Edward Teller's family.

Posting home addresses, etc. has long been an intimidation tactic of the anti-choice nutbags. It encourages the craziest among them to take these people out, like they did with abortion doctor Edward Teller, who was shot at his church.

This website you describe is the work of a private individual. It has nothing to do with NSA surveillance. There is no evidence secret "government data" was used for that website. It appears to be standard right wing intimidation tactics available to them in our open society.

Art Pope's intimidation efforts using the Civitas website is an important story, I appreciate the post. Sad you had to couch it with an anti-NSA gloss to get people to read it, but whatever works...

(919) 834-2099. It was probably the IMHO you folks are scum sucking. Francis DeLuca called me back. I told him in my opinion his group was un-american, and he said what about people who post their info online. Big difference. He said if I live in Arizona what do I care? TSS. He also assured me all the info was already public. He asked me my name, which I chose not to give. I asked him if this phone call was intended as intimidation like the info of the protesters.

88. If the Civitas site

 

has facts to support its thinly veiled insinuation of 501c3 violation by the organizations it smears, it should present them. Also, it is both comical and ironic to see the consternation of people who love Latin names and the legacy of Imperial Rome more than the Roman Republic they claim to admire, bemoaning CEO compensation among the Plebes. The average conservative intellectual is an authoritarian with slightly better than average verbal ability, servile ambition, and little else to recommend.

95. So sue Civitas, get the ACLU to sue ,

everyone knows who posted the data and they can be forced to disclose the source of the material.
you're arrested for trespassing...and now here you are on the intertoobs...your name, address, sex, age, race, party, occupation, employer, salary if available, alleged voter registration violation (address not matching registration)

If you are booked for a crime, most of this information is given to the police. In the not so distant past, the name, address, and age of people given traffic tickets was published in the local newspapers. Now only people charged with felonies get this treatment. I'm a registered democrat and that info is readily available from the board of elections.

Note that this has nothing to do with any Metadata or the NSA, no one had to know who you called to find this data.

It should be a call to arms for taking action to vote out these republican controlled state assemblies.

Instead we are whining about the government over-stepping. This story had to really be tortured to turn it into yet another anti-NSA thread.

Good job though.

119. Please start thinking

What is written on an envelope or is in meta is public because everybody can see it

1) Get this through your skull - it has, repeat has, to be public or else your mail, your phones and your internet would not work.

2) It has to be capable of being seen, not just by your mailman or your service provider but by all of the persons or computers it passes

3) Not only that but the envelope or meta describes what, legally, can be publicly scrutenised.

Conduct a thought experiment, what would happen if you wrote all of your most embarrassing secrets on sheet of paper and posted the unsealed and unfolded sheet through the post? Do you honestly believe that any postal worker or member of the public could be prosecuted for reading that unsolicited confession? Any court would throw that case out and laugh at you for being so ignorant because you would have no reasonable expectation of privacy from such an act. Envelopes and meta circumscribe what a postman, or member of the public, who glimpses the document is allowed to see without a warrant.

I the same way, when you subscribe to a magazine and receive hard copy do you really believe that no-one can see that magazine being delivered, or seeing the logo of that publication on the covering?

Do you really think that anyone visiting sites called, for example, "Jihadi Tips" or "Evil Abortionist Addresses" or ringing helplines with those names should not have the contents of such visits and calls examined in exactly the same way that letters to similar publications would be examined? The only real difference is that the "nasty evil" Government (in which you are inciting so much hatred) is looking at transcripts of internet transactions and logs of calls to document visits to such nauseous sites rather than at envelopes the postal service

Do you think that payments you make online to Uncle Robert in Bolivia should not be looked at in the same way that bulky envelopes addressed to Uruzgan Poppy Co-operative in Afghanistan should be examined?

Like so many others you are an outrage junkie who cannot see the difference between what is - and has to be - public and what you think should be obscured.
