TYRANNY ALERT: Finally, DHS Makes It Official; Monitoring the Online Activity of Journalists

In all honesty, Homeland Security has been monitoring the online activity of journalists and bloggers for well over a year now.  They have just decided to make it official.
“Under the National Operations Center (NOC)’s Media Monitoring Initiative that came out of DHS headquarters in November, Washington has the written permission to retain data on users of social media and online networking platforms.
Specifically, the DHS announced the NCO and its Office of Operations Coordination and Planning (OPS) can collect personal information from news anchors, journalists, reporters or anyone who may use traditional and/or social media in real time to keep their audience situationally aware and informed.’
According to the Department of Homeland Security’s own definition of personal identifiable information, or PII, such data could consist of any intellect ‘that permits the identity of an individual to be directly or indirectly inferred, including any information which is linked or linkable to that individual. Previously established guidelines within the administration say that data could only be collected under authorization set forth by written code, but the new provisions in the NOC’s write-up means that any reporter, whether someone along the lines of Walter Cronkite or a budding blogger, can be victimized by the agency.
Also included in the roster of those subjected to the spying are government officials, domestic or not, who make public statements, private sector employees that do the same and persons known to have been involved in major crimes of Homeland Security interest,’ which to itself opens up the possibilities even wider …”     

This particular act of treachery is about muting the voice of opposition from those who would stand up to a government that has clamped the iron boot of tyranny down upon the throats of millions.
Anyone exposing the lies while attempting to right the wrongs committed by the global elite are considered a threat heightening the urgency of the corrupt to silence said voices.
That being said, it is Homeland Security and our Marxist leaders who make the assertions that laws have been broken.  Enter National Defense Authorization Act of 2012 (NDAA).   
Stay vigilant patriots, the acrid stench of authoritarianism permeates the air.

“…We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.--That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, --That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. …”
