NSA domestic spying = old news
If you’re carrying a cell phone in your pocket, you have a GPS device (chip) on your person. And, unless you take the battery out, the NSA knows where you are at all times, and can even turn the phone on when it’s off (with the battery in) and use it as a listening device.
When it comes to “intercepting” communications, the government has redefined the term “intercepting” to mean “looking through the content gathered”. The government gathers all our data, and it gets warrants to look through our data whenever it wishes to do so. No warrant to gather content is required, only to look through it. This is what was referred to after 9/11 as “new tools for law enforcement”, which meant: no Bill of Rights for suspected terrorists, which included all of us. The NY mafia suffered from this same “no Bill of Rights fate” before 9/11, when “new tools for law enforcement” were needed in order to use the content, which had (for years) been gathered by intercepting their communications, so that the government could, with these “new tools”, use this data against them in court in order to prosecute them, which the government did.
A Florida professor, Sami Al-Arian, suffered this same “no Bill of Rights” fate when, after 9/11, the Patriot Act, with its “new tools for law enforcement”, was implemented, and all the data the government had (for years) been gathering on him by intercepting his communications could, with these “new tools”, be used against him in court.

The NSA domestic spying story is, in fact, old “news”.
NSA whistleblower William Binney resigned from the NSA years ago because the spying program he engineered (=Stellar Wind) was pointed at the American peoples immediately after September 11, 2001. He also filed suit in US federal court against the Bush government concerning this long ago, too.
Why isn’t Mr. Binney, a 32 year NSA employee and the inventor of Stellar Wind, on the news this morning? Why all the hoopla about a Booz Allen Hamilton contractor repeating the same story, in much less detail?
Binney was in fact in a New York Times piece, last year (=2012), wherein he explains all of this, and on Democracy Now, but why is he not in the mainstream media stream today?
Inside the NSA’s Domestic Surveillance Apparatus: Whistleblower William Binney Speaks Out
“William Binney describes how his former agency has built a massive system to track, monitor and record phone and Internet communications of U.S. citizens and people around the world. Binney resigned from the National Security Agency in 2001 to protest growing domestic surveillance. He was a senior NSA crypto-mathematician largely responsible for automating the agency’s worldwide eavesdropping network. He was one of the two co-founders of the agency’s Signals Intelligence Automation Research Center. He resigned after the Sept. 11 attacks. In 2012 he gave his first ever television interview to Democracy Now!”

The National Security Agency’s Domestic Spying Program
“It took me a few days to work up the nerve to phone William Binney. As someone already a “target” of the United States government, I found it difficult not to worry about the chain of unintended consequences I might unleash by calling Mr. Binney, a 32-year veteran of the National Security Agency turned whistle-blower. He picked up. I nervously explained I was a documentary filmmaker and wanted to speak to him. To my surprise he replied: “I’m tired of my government harassing me and violating the Constitution. Yes, I’ll talk to you.”
“Two weeks later, driving past the headquarters of the N.S.A. in Maryland, outside Washington, Mr. Binney described details about Stellar Wind, the N.S.A.’s top-secret domestic spying program begun after 9/11, which was so controversial that it nearly caused top Justice Department officials to resign in protest, in 2004.”

The DoD (ARPA) created the internet, and social media networks like MySpace, YouTube, and Facebook were created by DoD (DARPA) for CIA and NSA domestic spying purposes. Geospatial social networking is an integral part of NSA’s Stellar Wind domain timeline data gathering domestic surveillance program.
“Facebook was setup by the C.I.A. Try telling that to most people and they laugh at it. People seem to think its a coincidence that Facebook seems to be so intrusive over and over again. Privacy policies that would make anyone scratch their head. I’m not going to beat around the bush with this blog post. Facebook was setup by the C.I.A. as a data mining project to collect as much information on as many people as they could. Not only that but it also has very strong ties to D.A.R.P.A. The purpose of this data mining project that became Facebook was to find out a boat load of things on people. Where they are going. What they are doing. What airline are they using Who do they associate with What type of books or movies have you been reading. How you feel about things politically. The list goes on and on. Before I elaborate let me say that my prior statement about Facebook being setup by the C.I.A. isn’t a theory or a hunch. If you simply follow the money its quite easy to see what is going on. Before we follow this money trail, just think about this.”

FBI taps cell phone mic as eavesdropping tool
“The FBI appears to have begun using a novel form of electronic surveillance in criminal investigations: remotely activating a mobile phone’s microphone and using it to eavesdrop on nearby conversations.
The technique is called a “roving bug,” and was approved by top U.S. Department of Justice officials for use against members of a New York organized crime family who were wary of conventional surveillance techniques such as tailing a suspect or wiretapping him.”

You’re not doing anything wrong; therefore you’ve nothing to worry about? Think again:
“The average professional in this country wakes up in the morning, goes to work, comes home, eats dinner, and then goes to sleep, unaware that he or she has likely committed several federal crimes that day. Why? The answer lies in the very nature of modern federal criminal laws, which have exploded in number but also become impossibly broad and vague. In Three Felonies a Day, Harvey A. Silverglate reveals how federal criminal laws have become dangerously disconnected from the English common law tradition and how prosecutors can pin arguable federal crimes on any one of us, for even the most seemingly innocuous behavior.”
