According to a new declassified ruling from the U.S. Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court (FISC), FBI personnel systematically abused National Security Agency (NSA) mass surveillance data in both 2017 and 2018. The 138-page ruling, which dates back to October 2018, was only unsealed 12 months later in October 2019. It offers a rare look at how the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) has been abusing the constitutional privacy rights of U.S. citizens with alarming regularity. The court ruling is also a stinging rebuke to the FBI’s overreach of its ability to search surveillance intelligence databases.

    Not that I agree with this, but is anyone actually surprised that NSA tools are being abused for law enforcement purposes? I’m not.

      Wow, I studied cognitive neuroscience so I’m well aware of the potential. Also well aware that intelligence agencies have infiltrated Facebook and Google etc. Facebook’s desire to do non-invasive brain computer interface is absolutely along the lines you’re describing.

      Big Pharma is absolutely terrifying. the conflict of interest is pretty scary and there’s no reliable watch dogs.

      It’s clear that the banking families that were able to implement the private central banking system we have today have use this incredible wealth to buy our politicians around the world and basically take over intelligence agencies. That with controlling the media allows him to set up false flag operation’s that can then unlock the full power of nationstate militaries to do their bidding. That’s what the last 20 years in the Middle East of been about. We may not have installed democracy in any of these countries but they all have been wired up into the global central banking system. Syria was one of the few remaining independent nations. That’s why the deep state is flipping their shit out now that trumps trying to withdraw

    I wonder why the mainstream media didn’t cover this bombshell news this week?

    Over 3 million illegal searches made by the FBI against American citizens.

    This is what actual corruption looks like, this is the reason all these deep state actors are in such a panic mode to take out Trump. This is just the tip of the iceberg of their crimes are going to be exposed over the next year.

      Are you trying to discredit this information? Just because the mainstream media didn’t report on it does that mean it’s not true? I mean what are you even trying to get at?

      The post above mine is some alt-right conspiracy nonsense.

      Again, do you not think that this report came out this week? Other than it makes you uncomfortable I have no idea what your point is

      Sure, the report exists. But the Geller report is not a credible source of information and it’s transparent attempt to lever it into a hit-piece on Obama personally and the left in general is wacko and makes me question the motives and critical thinking of anyone who cites it. That’s my point.

    So much discretion is given, so many established protections are circumvented in the name of exigency, probable cause, or even reasonable suspicion.

    Rights to privacy are violated casually, frivolously, and without substantiating ANY need except based on an officer’s or agency’s mere BELIEF, arbitrary classification of the suspect, or other unchecked and unregulated “need” such as “in the name of national security”.

    Unverified anonymous tips can be called in to make a report so that there is a trail supporting an investigation that is otherwise a wild goose chase or a hunch, at best. Targeting, at worst.

    Who holds agencies like the FBI accountable for such gross overreach? Where are the fines? Where are the firings? Who is being prosecuted?
