Sources: NSA Targeting Credit Card Use
Big Government ^ | 6/7/2013 | Elizabeth Sheld

Posted on 06/07/2013 2:36:29 AM PDT by markomalley

The WSJ is reporting that in addition to monitoring cell phone records, emails and web activity, the National Security Agency is monitoring credit card transactions. "NSA has established similar relationships with credit-card companies, three former officials said."

The WSJ article in question:

The National Security Agency's monitoring of Americans includes customer records from the three major phone networks as well as emails and Web searches, and the agency also has cataloged credit-card transactions, said people familiar with the agency's activities.

The disclosure this week of an order by a secret U.S. court for Verizon Communications Inc.'s phone records set off the latest public discussion of the program. But people familiar with the NSA's operations said the initiative also encompasses phone-call data from AT&T Inc. and Sprint Nextel Corp., records from Internet-service providers and purchase information from credit-card providers.

And soon to have medical records, all student loan information. Zbigniew Brzezinski wrote a book about how a few elite with control the masses by monitoring them with technology.

One more reason not to buy ammo online—if you can find it.

Phone calls (land & mobile), faxes, cc purchases, texting, email etc... everything you do/say electronically is being vacuumed-up by the NSA’s facility in Bluffdale, UT.

It’s been going on for a long time; get used to it, citizen!

Yet with all this info, they could not stop the Boston bombers - with a tip from the Russians.

Techo-idiocy, above and beyond the appalling Constitutional issues here.

This is news? Just with credit check requests, this kind of data comes up. Everything you even browse online is tallied. The targeted ads for something I look at online follows me constantly.

My thing is those dang affinity cards. If you use one of them, even without using a credit card, there's a complete record of your purchases. I don't use one in a local grocery store that has one, thus shopping there as seldom as possible (I can't get their sales). Now they have another big brother policy....you can't use their self-checkout unless you use an affinity card! So, even with using cash, everything a person purchases is somebody's business.

We really don't have any privacy left. I can't imagine how freedom is even possible without individual responsibiity, enforced and reasonable laws, and freedom to move and think.

They couldn’t stop the underwear bomber when his own father warned us.

The father of the American woman killed in Syria also claims he called the FBI to tell them about her scam marriage, radicalization, and tried to have her passport taken away. Thank God she chose to die there rather than here.

If they were really interested in protecting us they would seal our borders and pick and choose who comes in. If they can watch all of us they can damn sure protect our borders.

If only the Russians had called them on Verizon (sarcasm).

If the feds wanted to stop these terrorist acts the first thing they'd do is not let terrorist wannabees in the US from Chechnya and such.

TRILLIONS spent, a massive police state created...all because we refuse to simply stop importing Muslims into America.

When I heard some of the details about that case, I thought to myself that if I was training a new hire on how to find a potential terrorist using a database, I would give parameters similar to the underwear bomber. He was basically walking around with a sign on his chest proclaiming his intentions.

And then I heard John Brennan on a radio interview saying how hard it was to find someone like him, and I thought to myself, Cripes, a good marketing database person could find someone like that in minutes. What frickin' good are you? And that idiot is now in charge of the CIA.

Unfortunately I don’t realize just how many dangerous people we’ve deliberately imported for years.

We brought in thousands of Iraqi defectors from the first gulf war. Lord only knows how many Somalis we’ve brought in. I dated a Serbian sociologist who told me that she had interviewed dozens of war criminals from the Balkan mess who were in American prisons and walking free. There must be hundreds of thousands here on student visas.

They are not interested in stopping Muslims. They are focused on stopping the Tea Party. Get with the program.

I’ve found Beck&Co to be somewhat “ahead of the curve” (prophetic) on a number of things, though it’s widely assumed “he went off the cliff” a long time ago. Yes, some of the things he says are downright wacky, but that’s another story.

As an aside, my former IT guy from Balt, who had his own company and worked for my Family Farm business (retail software/hardware systems consultant) before I closed on 11/11/11, told me in 2009, that this stuff was going on for many years. He and his partner had very high security clearances, at one time, and wired-up the lower floors of “The Puzzle Palace” (NSA) back in the early/mid-80s, and did computer installs/ maintenance for them, for several years. He wouldn’t say any more about it.

I’m sorry, but this just wreaks.

If you’ve got a problem individual or actual terrorism is suspected, fine. Otherwise stop doing this to decent law-abiding citizens.

This is not the old Eastern Block or Soviet Russia.

Importing Muslims was the goal.

Homogenous societies (like we had prior to 1965) don’t need this sort of technology or tracking.

This, ultimately, was the whole goal of the immigration act. Don’t think the elites didn’t know this would happen or become ‘necessary’ after they passed that.

Think Yugoslavia and Tito. That’s the goal of the elites.
