IS THE UNITED STATES IN A 2ND CIVIL WAR?
The Left does not believe our rights come from God but rather they come from the United Nations or in other words the World government. And human rights as currently established by the United Nations are firmly based in a secular humanist worldview which stands in stark contrast to the Biblically based worldview of most of the American founders.
Leftists are globalists and would see themselves first as citizens of the world, and only secondarily as citizens of their nations. They reject almost all immigration controls and believe people in the world should be able to move freely between different areas of the world. They would like to see the concept of nations abolished to bring about a one world humanist government order.
The Right strongly believes in the concept of nations. They believe the United States has the right to control who comes into the country and to do what is in the best interests of its citizens as opposed to the citizens of other countries. Leftists believe that women have the right to kill their unborn children because the U.N. has declared the human beings are not persons until they are born. Most on the Right believe that unborn human beings have the same right to life as those who are born.
Those on the Right believe they have a right to keep and bear arms to defend their families and their rights both from criminals as well as governments that overstep their authority. Those on the Left reject the individual right to bear arms to defend one’s self, one’s family or to oppose a government which tramples the rights of its citizens.
Leftists believe marriage is between any two consenting adults, whether they be man or woman. Most on the right, with the exception of some atheists and libertarians, believe marriage is between a man and woman. Leftists believe there are more than two genders, most on the right believe there are only two genders, male and female.
Leftists believe in socialism, which includes the government using its power of taxation to redistribute wealth from the rich and middle classes to the poor. Those on the right believe that caring for the poor should be done by churches, other private charitable institutions and family members – it is not the job of government. They believe the primary purpose of taxation should be to pay for government employee’s salaries, public infrastructure, police and other first responders and of course the military.
Leftists believe in social engineering, which involves forcibly planting one ethnic group of their citizens into an area that is predominantly occupied by another ethnic group of their citizens. They also believe in forcibly planting lower class income groups into upper and middle-class neighborhoods through government subsidies and other housing schemes. Those on the right believe local communities should listen to their local citizens as to how best to zone and conduct their communities.
Leftists believe in a top down approach. That society is best order from an all-powerful central government. Those on the right believe in the bottom up approach to government. They believe society is best managed on the local community level first, then state level and very few things should be managed at the federal level. This is in keeping with the limited government approach of the original Constitution and the Bill of Rights.
The American Surveillance
In the last ten years systems for indiscriminate, mass surveillance have become the norm.
Intelligence companies such as VASTech secretly sell equipment to permanently record the phone calls of entire nations.
Others record the location of every mobile phone in a city, down to 50 meters.
Systems to infect every Facebook user, or smart-phone owner of an entire population group are on the intelligence market.
Selling Surveillance to Dictators
When citizens overthrow the dictatorships in Egypt and Libya this year, they uncovered listening rooms where devices from Gamma corporation of the UK, Amesys of France, VASTech of South Africa and ZTE Corp of China monitored their every move online and on the phone.
Surveillance companies like SS8 in the U.S., Hacking Team in Italy and Vupen in France manufacture viruses (Trojans) that hijack individual computers and phones (including iPhones, Blackberries and Androids), take over the device, record its every use, movement, and even the sights and sounds of the room it is in. Other companies like Phoenexia in the Czech Republic collaborate with the military to create speech analysis tools. They identify individuals by gender, age and stress levels and track them based on ‘voice prints’.
Blue Coat in the U.S. and Ipoque in Germany sell tools to governments in countries like China and Iran to prevent dissidents from organizing online. Trovicor, previously a subsidiary of Nokia Siemens Networks, supplied the Bahraini government with interception technologies that tracked human rights activist Abdul Ghani Al Khanjar.
He was shown details of personal mobile phone conversations from before he was interrogated and beaten in the winter of 2010-2011.
How Mass Surveillance Contractors Share Your Data with the State
In January 2011, the National Security Agency broke ground on a $1.5 billion facility in the Utah desert that is designed to store terabytes of domestic and foreign intelligence data forever and process it for years to come. Telecommunication companies are forthcoming when it comes to disclosing client information to the authorities – no matter the country. Headlines during past unrest in the UK exposed how Research in Motion (RIM), makers of the Blackberry, offered to help the government identify their clients. RIM has been in similar negotiations to share BlackBerry Messenger data with the governments of India, Lebanon, Saudi Arabia, and the United Arab Emirates.
Data As A Weapon, Kills Innocent People
There are commercial firms that now sell special software that analyze this data and turn it into powerful tools that can be used by military and intelligence agencies. For example, in military bases across the U.S., Air Force pilots use a video link and joystick to fly Predator drones to conduct surveillance over the Middle East and Central Asia.
This data is available to Central Intelligence Agency officials who use it to fire Hellfire missiles on targets. The CIA officials have bought software that allows them to match phone signals and voice prints instantly and pinpoint the specific identity and location of individuals.
Intelligence Integration Systems, Inc., based in Massachusetts – sells a “location-based analytics” software called Geospatial Toolkit for this purpose. Another Massachusetts company named Netezza, which bought a copy of the software, allegedly reverse engineered the code and sold a hacked version to the Central Intelligence Agency for use in remotely piloted drone aircraft.
IISI, which says that the software could be wrong by a distance of up to 40 feet, sued Netezza to prevent the use of this software. Company founder Rich Zimmerman stated in court that his “reaction was one of stun, amazement that they (CIA) want to kill people with my software that doesn’t work.”
