The CIA’s cover was just blown.
The activities that they have been engaged in against their own citizens was exposed.
And now chaos is erupting as Americans realize that they have been lied to.
It is illegal for the CIA to engage in activities on American soil. They are required by law to only conduct activities on foreign adversaries.
But of course, that’s not what they’ve been doing.
Gathering information on foreign adversaries is only a portion of what the CIA does.
The main reason they exist is to influence the media, and to target the political adversaries of the American elites.
Even though that has been known for a long time, their activities were mostly kept secret.
But now, the truth about the CIA is coming out, and it is very ugly.
According to CBS News, “The CIA has a secret, undisclosed data repository that includes information collected about Americans.”
The article goes on to say that “the CIA has long hidden details about the program from the public and Congress.”
This CIA program does not have any legal authorities for its existence, even under expansive surveillance laws such as the Patriot Act.
“According to the letter from Wyden and Heinrich, the CIA’s bulk collection program operates outside of laws passed and reformed by Congress, but under the authority of Executive Order 12333.”
Executive Order 12333 is a little-known executive order that gives the intelligence community virtually unlimited power to control American society.
What Executive Order 12333 does is it subordinates the rest of the U.S. government to the CIA.
It requires that all other agencies of the federal government comply with requests made by the CIA. It sets up the CIA as the foremost power of the federal government.
This of course, runs completely contrary to most people’s conception of the United States as a “democracy.”
In a democracy, people elect their leaders, and if they aren’t doing the right things, they vote them out.
Furthermore, in a Constitutional Republic, when leaders are elected, they are prevented by the Constitution from passing laws that violate the rights of their citizens.
This is the system that the Founding Fathers set up.
But ever since World War II, the “intelligence community” has been expanding their powers year after year.
The CIA was founded in 1947, the NSA was founded in 1952, and the FBI acquired massively expanded powers under the regime of J. Edgar Hoover during the same time period.
Together, these agencies have effectively become a government unto themselves, collecting information about American citizens and using that information to destroy political enemies.
In 2013, Edward Snowden revealed a huge amount of information about what the NSA was engaged in.
But Americans did not care enough to demand a change to the system. And so, the spying continued.
Now, the CIA is terrorizing Americans once more, and the truth has been exposed.
At what point will the American people wake up and turn against the repressive intelligence agencies that are taking away their freedom?
