FBI Director Gives Shocking News to Americans: Privacy Is ‘Dead’ (Video)

Welcome to the information age, where everything you do or say can and will be monitored and used against you. Your constitutional right to privacy? Forget about it! At least according to FBI Director James Comey who delivered this chilling line at a recent cybersecurity conference “There is no such thing as absolute privacy in America; there is no place outside of judicial reach,” and with the information revealed by the WikiLeaks Vault 7 documents, we know that their capability extends far beyond ‘judicial reach’.

In the following video Right Wing News looks at the implications of this statement to our individual privacy today. As usual, the ‘security’ justification is the main reason used to continuously expand the powers of the government while reducing the rights of the common citizen. And while the public should be in an uproar over this, it almost seems as if we have become so inoculated to this that the erosion of our individual rights is simply accepted as a matter of course. 

Instead, ‘political activists’ are more concerned with gender pronoun issues and safe spaces. That’s ironic, given that our individual right to privacy is the ultimate safe space, one that is continually being intruded upon. How much longer can we continue to accept this intrusion on our privacy as the status quo?

Your News Wire Reports:

FBI Director James Comey warned Americans on Wednesday that privacy in America is completely and utterly dead. 

Comey told a Boston College conference on cybersecurity that the public need to forget about the notion of “absolute privacy” in this digital age.

“There is no such thing as absolute privacy in America; there is no place outside of judicial reach,” Comey told attendees. “Even our communications with our spouses, with our clergy members, with our attorneys are not absolutely private in America. In appropriate circumstances, a judge can compel any one of us to testify in court about those very private communications.”

ABC15.com reports:

But, he also said Americans “have a reasonable expectation of privacy in our homes, in our cars, in our devices.

“It is a vital part of being an American. The government cannot invade our privacy without good reason, reviewable in court,” Comey continued.

In the last four months of 2016, the FBI lawfully gained access to 2,800 devices recovered in criminal, terrorism and counterintelligence investigations and the FBI was unable to open 43% of those devices, Comey said.

Americans’ desire for privacy and security should never be viewed as incompatible, he said.

“We all value privacy. We all value security. We should never have to sacrifice one for the other,” Comey said. “Our founders struck a bargain that is at the center of this amazing country of ours and has been for over two centuries.”

Comey’s leadership of the FBI has been marked by controversy in the wake of the bureau’s handling of the investigation into Hillary Clinton’s email controversy and President Donald Trump’s baseless accusations that President Barack Obama ordered the wiretapping of phones at Trump Tower.

He did not address the wiretapping claim nor WikiLeaks’ recent claim that it obtained internal CIA documents.

Comey did, however, say he plans to finish out his 10-year term.

“You’re stuck with me for about another 6 1/2 years, and so I’d love to be invited back again,” he said.

The Most Shocking Revelation From The CIA-Spying Scandal

Via Simon Black of SovereignMan.com,

It happened again– another spying scandal in the Land of the Free.

Yesterday Wikileaks released 8,761 CIA documents detailing the agency’s hacking of smart phones, routers, computers, and even televisions.

These files reveal that the CIA can and has hacked devices that were supposedly secure– iPhones, iPads, and Android devices.

The documents further reveal that the CIA is deliberately infecting personal computers with spyware, including Windows, Mac OS/X, Solaris, Linux, and other operating systems.

They’re also hacking WiFi routers to deploy software that monitors Internet activity, and have even figured out how to bypass anti-virus software so that their spyware cannot be detected.

They’ve also managed to make the rest of the world believe that Russian hackers, not the CIA, are behind all this malware and spyware.

It’s like a restatement of that old Mission: Impossible line– “Should any of your IM force be caught or killed… we’ll blame Russia.”

The CIA is pretty shameless about its activities, nicknaming its various hacking programs “Assassin”, “Medusa”, and “Brutal Kangaroo”.

One of the deepest revelations is that the agency is able to hack Internet-connected televisions, including Samsung smart TVs, through a program called “Weeping Angel”.

Basically the CIA can turn your TV into a listening device, recording conversations in the room and transmitting the audio to a CIA server.

Even if you think the TV is off, it’s not.

CIA hackers have been able to spoof the on/off display and set the television to a “false off” mode.

Bottom line, no device that’s connected to the outside world is truly safe.

And future Wikileaks publications may show that the intelligence community is hacking home automation devices, Internet-connected automobiles (including driverless vehicles), and artificial intelligence like Amazon’s Alexa.

It’s hard to be shocked at this point that the government is spying on its own allies and citizens.

This is just the latest in a pattern of brazen surveillance and flagrant Constitutional violations on the part of the US intelligence community.

But that’s precisely what I find MOST concerning - the LACK of concern over these new CIA documents.

People have such a low expectation of their government now, and have become so accustomed to the government routinely violating their civil liberties, that there’s hardly any public outrage anymore about these spying scandals.

More importantly, the lack of concern is indicative of what freedom means in the Land of the Free today.

Here’s a great example–

Young people are traditionally the most politically charged activists in the country.

But where are the protests across university campuses demanding freedom and privacy?

It’s not happening.

That’s because university students are too busy protesting against ideas they don’t want to hear about.

At Middlebury College last week, a small liberal arts school in Vermont, a small mob of student protestors physically assaulted a conservative speaker because his ideas offended them.

They couldn’t simply skip the lecture and allow interested students to attend.

No, they had to engage in violent censorship, oppressing any idea that doesn’t conform to their narrow agenda.

The only thing these cry bullies are interested in hearing is apologetic white men groveling over their privilege.

This is the new reality in the Land of the Free: freedom has deteriorated into some gender studies professor’s socialist fantasy.

Constitutionally guaranteed liberties have become irrelevant.

Forget about “free speech”.

Any intellectual dissent from the intolerant Social Justice view is now considered “hate speech”.

And the Fourth Amendment, which establishes “the right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects against unreasonable searches and seizures,” has become a distant memory.

As a child who grew up in the 80s during the height of the Cold War, I imagine there would have been widespread disgust if a similar scandal had been exposed.

Spying on citizens and allies? That’s what the Soviet Union did.

But today, everything else is more important.

Transgender bathrooms. Silencing hate speech. Forcing elementary school children to feel guilty about their white privilege. Political correctness in extremis. #everyone-else-but-white-people’s-lives-matter.

This is what dominates the social conversation now in the Land of the Free.

Privacy is no longer a Western value.

After all, people narcissistically upload their entire lives to social media (as if anyone cares what they’re having for dinner) so that Mark Zuckerberg can auction off our details to the highest bidder.

And it is precisely this decline that I find most disturbing.

Some people hold the idiotic belief that, “If I have nothing to hide, I have nothing to fear.”

This is dangerous logic, for so many reasons.

Even the use of the word ‘hide’ is ridiculous… as if the fact that I don’t upload photos of my nether regions to Instagram means that I’m “hiding” something.

We all keep things private. It’s why we wear clothing, don’t discuss our personal finances in polite company, and worry when our social security number is stolen.

But more importantly, if it doesn’t matter that the CIA is monitoring people’s most intimate moments, then does anything matter?

They keep moving the line, probing deeper and deeper into our lives and enveloping the nation inside an Orwellian surveillance state.

And it doesn’t stop… because we’re in the midst of a complete breakdown of western values.
