The NSA wants to spy on Americans by hacking their smartphone apps

January 27, 2014

  We already know that the NSA is collecting the metadata of virtually every American telephone call, and we know that the NSA has infiltrated Facebook and Twitter, but now if this story is true the NSA plans to hack into people’s smartphone apps as well.

The National Security Agency and its UK counterpart GCHQ have been developing capabilities to take advantage of “leaky” smartphone apps, such as the wildly popular Angry Birds game, that transmit users’ private information across the internet, according to top secret documents.

 The data pouring onto communication networks from the new generation of iPhone and Android apps ranges from phone model and screen size to personal details such as age, gender and location.

  The NSA is defending this by claiming the location of people is vital to national security:

Exploiting phone information and location is a high-priority effort for the intelligence agencies, as terrorists and other intelligence targets make substantial use of phones in planning and carrying out their activities, for example by using phones as triggering devices in conflict zones.

  Okay then, why is the NSA also curious as to a person’s sexual orientation if this is the ultimate goal of the NSA:

Some apps, the documents state, can share users’ most sensitive information such as sexual orientation – and one app recorded in the material even sends specific sexual preferences such as whether or not the user may be a swinger.

  There may be some legitimate uses for some of this information but the sexual orientation of an individual should be of no concern to the Federal government whatsoever, unless of course the Federal government is seeking this information for political reasons such as blackmail.

  We already know the Federal government has used the IRS to target political opponents so I wouldn’t put it passed the regime to gather this type of information to use against its political opponents.

  The Federal government can hide behind national security all it wants to but it seems as if there is something bigger, and more nefarious, going on here. We all know that when the terrorists are not busy plotting the destruction of America they take up their free time by playing Angry Birds, don’t they?

    “The NSA is defending this by claiming the location of people is vital to national security:”

    Are the worried about the security of the “nation” (that would be us) or are they woried about the security of the government (them)?

    I am posting this here to make sure it gets read. What do you think of what the man says?
    It is from WND.com

    MESSAGE TO CONGRESSMEN/WOMEN:

    Hello, I am an angry voter! Before it is too late I feel the need to be the whistleblower! I am petitioning you to do several things:

    •​Audit the Fed to enforce transparency and to stop printing money out of thin air! (I support Senator Rand Paul’s positions). The Federal Reserve’s actions creates cycles of economic boom followed by economic destruction. Nowhere in human history has an endless printing of a nation’s currency produced a positive final result. “Quantitative Easing” 1,2,3,4 creates bubbles in the stock market, such as it currently lifting the Dow above 16000 before it severely crashes. America has an illusion of economy recovery because of the actions of the Federal Reserve – not a real recovery. Meanwhile, our elected officials point to the stock market and claim credit for “success”- it is a lie! Peter Schiff of Euro Pacific Capital is correct: http://www.europac.net/comment… . The federal reserve is nothing but a Ponzi scheme! We *have been* the world’s reserve currency of choice since the end of WWII, however, the federal reserve’s reckless policy of financial folly has resulted in other nations moving to unseat, undermine, undercut the middleman(the U.S. dollar) by making direct agreements with nations other than the U.S.A. to eliminate the need for our currency for trade(i.e. B.R.I.C. nations. Brazil, Russia, India, China). This can be appropriately labeled as currency wars. America’s debt is 17 trillion dollars and exploding. America’s adversaries do not need to defeat us militarily, they are waiting for us to go bankrupt! As soon as the U.S. dollar is dethroned as the world’s reserve currency by a new world order, expect the value of the American dollar to crash, along with the stock market and pensioner’s 401k’s – expect the next great depression and hyperinflation! (history’s examples: Weimar Republic, Zimbabwe). Source http://www.businessinsider.com…… . History such as the great depression eventually repeats itself, especially when we do not learn from our mistakes! Americans will need a wheelbarrow of cash to buy a loaf of bread! –AUDIT THE FED!!!

    •​Hold the democrat liars who sold Obamacare to the American people accountable -including the socialist, marxist, communist, fascist, “Saul Alinsky”, crises creator-(“never let a crises go to waste”), “boil the frog slowly”-(the American people that is!), “make it hurt”-(closing the veteran’s WWII memorial while Pelosi stages an illegal immigrant rally on the mall during the shutdown on the same day!), federal deficit ballooner, phony president and his administration (what the president says and does do not match!!). – I still remember the ties Obama had to Reverend Jeremiah Wright and the domestic terrorist Bill Ayers!

    •​Enforce Congress and the President to live by the same laws you impose on the American people (i.e. Obamacare).

    •​Impeach the president, uphold and defend the constitution and the bill of rights as it was originally written (impeaching the president and upholding defending the constitution/bill of rights are related!).

    •​Call a Constitution Article V Convention of States for the purpose of limiting the power and jurisdiction of the federal government! http://WWW.CONVENTIONOFSTATES.COM

    •​Reign in the executive branch overreach of authority and privilege! He has unconstitutionally legislated by executive order! What is the president going to do next week, month or year?? – Create and incite a national crisis as an excuse to declare martial law so he can crown himself a dictator?? What about about Obama creating the crisis of bankrupting this nation by deliberately doubling the national deficit during his presidency?! – An insidiously subversive, “trojan horse” president, politically funded by the anti-american billionaire George Soros, a known communist, socialist, currency manipulator! – Most of the democratic party is bought and paid for! http://pro.stansberryresearch…. – For the preservation of American Freedoms and the American way of life IMPEACH THIS PRESIDENT NOW!!!!

    •​Hold the failures of the Bengazi scandal accountable (especially the president and Hillary Clinton).

    •​Hold the NSA domestic spying on American citizens without probable cause scandal accountable (4th amendment violation).

    •​Impeach Eric Holder for the Fast and Furious scandal.

    • Hold the parties responsible for the IRS targeting of political opposition groups/persons

    •​Oppose Amnesty for illegals (because they should not be rewarded for sneaking across our porous border) to prevent them from becoming 12 million newly minted-low information-bought and paid for entitlement-welfare-burden on the U.S taxpayer-bankrupt America democratic voters!!!

    •​Oppose the president’s Trans Pacific Partnership Treaty (since nobody clearly knows what is in it like Obamacare and I fear the president is selling America’s sovereignty “down the river”.

    •​Oppose the sneaky U.N. Small Arms Treaty or any other future U.N. infringement on American sovereignty – In fact, kick the anti-American, vision of one world government U.N. out of the U.S.A.!! U.N.’s Agenda 21 is evil!

    • Why has the DHS bought 1.6 billion hollow point bullets? What are they preparing for? Why has the Obama administration heavily militarized the DHS and our local police departments? Per the Geneva conventions, hollow points are illegal to use in wars between nations. The DHS must be preparing to use them against the American people! What is worse is American taxpayer dollars were use to buy these bullets! I think it is because they are the first to know just how serious America’s impending bankruptcy is and hiding it from the public! I am demanding the demilitarization of the “department of homeland security”!! Obama’s communist domestic army! Representative Sheila Jackson Lee slipped when she suggested the words “martial law” during the federal government shutdown – If you look at her contact info on the http://www.house.gov website, it shows her committee assignment as “Homeland Security Judiciary” (not a coincidence)! – “When the people fear their government, there is tyranny! When the government fears the people, there is liberty!” – Thomas Jefferson

    •​Increase sanctions on Iran to end their nuclear program, otherwise you will enable war to break out in the middle-east while betraying Israel.

    This is my protest!! I believe we are in danger of losing our Constitutional Republic! Help me save it!

    I am risking unjust reprisal to speak out, yet the consequences of remaining silent are far worse for this nation!

    Just say NO to the sell-out RINO’s – (Senator Mitch McConnell, this includes you!!)

    Senator Harry Reid, you have always been a sell-out, or you are a political coward, and an accomplice to the Obama administration corruption! I am calling you out on it! – “Those who will sacrifice liberty for temporary security, deserve neither, and will lose both” – Benjamin Franklin

    I am an anti-progressive(democrat and republican alike), anti-liberal, anti-elitist-condescending statist-(“trust us because we know what is best for you better than you do and the American people are too stupid to make wise choices for themselves”) – so for example, we will impose elitist, “genius” Obamacare on the American people whether they want it or not!

    I am a pro-constitution, bill of rights, founding father’s principles, limited government, libertarian supporter, Mark Levin’s book – “The Liberty Amendments” admirer, Constitution’s Article V convention of state’s advocate.

    I’m sending a copy of this message to your fellow congressmen and news media outlets across the country, including some in your state! (I treasure the bill of rights, do you??)
