Surveillance State: Blacklisting and the Secret Habit Employers Can’t Seem to Kick

While we’ve seen other reports of this type of state agency behaviour before, this one is still particularly disturbing, as it reveals a state security apparatus which acts as a law unto itself, very clearly in the service of an unelected oligarchy.

Doorbell-camera firm Ring has partnered with 400 police forces, extending surveillance reach

Source: Drew Harwell The doorbell-camera company Ring has quietly forged video-sharing partnerships with more than 400 police forces across the United States, granting them access to homeowners’ camera footage and a powerful role in what the company calls America’s “new neighborhood watch.” The partnerships let police automatically request the video recorded by homeowners’ cameras within a specific time and area, helping officers see footage from the company’s millions of Internet-connected cameras installed nationwide, the company said. Officers don’t receive ongoing or live-video access, and homeowners can decline the requests, which…

The Omnipresent Surveillance State: Orwell’s 1984 Is No Longer Fiction

John W. Whitehead, RutherfordWaking Times “You had to live—did live, from habit that became instinct—in the assumption that every sound you made was overheard, and, except in darkness, every movement scrutinized.”—George Orwell, 1984 Tread cautiously: the fiction of George Orwell has become an operation manual for the omnipresent, modern-day surveillance state.

How to Opt Out of TSA’s Looming Airport Face Scans

Jason Kelley, EFFWaking Times Government agencies and airlines have ignored years of warnings from privacy groups and senators that using face recognition technology on travelers would massively violate their privacy. Now, the passengers are in revolt as well, and they’re demanding answers. Last week, a lengthy exchange on Twitter between a traveler who was concerned about her privacy and a spokesperson for the airline JetBlue went viral, and many of the questions asked by the traveler and others were the same ones that we’ve posed to Customs and Border Protection (CBP) officials: Where did you get my data?

From Jesus Christ to Julian Assange: When Dissidents Become Enemies of the State

John W. Whitehead, GuestWaking Times “In a time of universal deceit, telling the truth is a revolutionary act.” — George Orwell When exposing a crime is treated as committing a crime, you are being ruled by criminals.
