Scientific Researchers Developing Mind Reading

If you think the NSA is a problem, wait until scientists discover how mind reading can be put in a bottle. At Yale University, researchers recently used a brain scanner to identify which face someone was looking at — just from their brain activity. At the University of California-Berkeley, scientists are moving beyond “reading” simple […]

Russia’s Ukraine Moves Evaded NSA Surveillance. Snowden Was In Russia. Coincidence?

How did Russia evade NSA surveillance during its Crimea incursion and while amassing troops near Ukraine? Russia apparently has recently obtained the ability to avoid United States eavesdropping, and it has the United States very nervous. In July, primary Snowden source Glenn Greenwald told The Associated Press that Snowden “is in possession of literally thousands […]

Snowden’s Advisers Confess: The Putin TV Appearance Was An Epic Blunder

With heroes like these, who needs heroes? As we discussed last week, Edward Snowden derped his way into handing Vladimir Putin a major propaganda victory live on the state-run RT network.

Electronic Frontier Foundation Praises the Tea Party, FreedomWorks and Birther Larry Klayman

Yesterday, tax day, the Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF) posted an article titled “Tea Party, Taxes and Why the Original Patriots Would’ve Revolted Against the Surveillance State,” and it wouldn’t surprise me if the authors were wearing tri-corner hats with hand-written “Rand Paul 4 Prez” placards stacked up on their desks while they hammered out the […]

NSA Boss’s Epic Sexist Gaffe

  Stay classy, Michael Hayden: Senator Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) has chaired the Senate’s Intelligence Committee for five years. So when she suggested last month that investigators should make public a report on the U.S.’s interrogation techniques because it would “ensure that an un-American, brutal program of detention and interrogation will never again be considered or […]

Physicists Building NSA-Proof Internet

It’s theoretically possible, but physicists have to refine it to make it work in reality. The system is based on quantum physics, and more specifically on the concept of “entanglement.” Entanglement is a topic that even hardened scientists discuss with a degree of wonder. “It’s quite mysterious, in fact,” said Félix Bussières, a senior researcher […]

If It Weren’t For Edward Snowden, This Would Not Be Happening

We should give him a nod of thanks for President Obama finally asking the NSA to curb bulk collection of phone records. The White House is preparing a proposal that would curb the bulk collection of phone records by the National Security Agency, the New York Times reported on Monday, citing administration officials. Obama in […]

Jimmy Carter Thinks NSA Is Spying On His Emails

The former president told Meet the Press he sends messages to foreign leaders via snail mail for fear his emails are being monitored by the National Security Agency. “As a matter of fact, you know, I have felt that my own communications were probably monitored. And when I want to communicate with a foreign leader […]
