The Surveillance State Didn’t Stop The Orlando Shooting — Nor Will The Resultant Police State

Mass surveillance has, for the larger segment of the U.S. populace, become an integral facet in the illusory feeling of security. But does it serve any purpose at all — other than providing the Surveillance State a handy excuse for keeping tabs on anyone it chooses, while simultaneously quashing every one of our paltry remaining legal rights?
While it may be comforting to feel the overarching blanket of indiscriminate surveillance keeps us all safe from harm, the deaths of at least 50 people in an Orlando nightclub prove indisputably the contrary.
In fact, the National Security Agency and Federal Bureau of Investigation — and, indeed, every agency — attempting to employ the weary excuse they spy on you to keep you safe can be disproven in the events of the early morning hours this past Sunday.

The "Spin" on this massive fuck up by the FBI will be fascinating. A $50 billion+ dollar budget and they can't find their asses with both hands and a radar set.

Many more of these "suspicious" incidents to come.


Obama to announce a "National Emergency" & declare National Martial Law by Executive order before the November Elections.
