The Spying Federal Pigeon

by Al Benson Jr.

Just about every day, when we drive across the bridge over the bayou, there is a whole group of pigeons  perched on one of the telephone wires that parallel the bridge. Most people don’t even think about them and just drive by without noticing them. But, if you take the trouble to find a place to stop and look, with field glasses, you will see that one of them looks a little different than the rest. That’s because it’s not a real pigeon–it’s a pretend pigeon, with a hi-tech camera hidden underneath its pretend feathers–and it’s busily taking pictures of every car that goes over the bridge and recording the license tag numbers. That way, the federal spymasters know who goes over the bridge and how often.  If you cross too often you may one day get a visit from a federal snoop from an agency with such a long name you can’t even remember it, and he’ll want to know why you cross the bridge so often and ask you if you are on your way to any clandestine, anti-government meetings with all those crossings.

Now admittedly, the little story in the previous paragraph is a bit of a farce, but the idea came to me when I saw a photo of a batch of cameras all lined up and fastened to a pipe. I have no idea where the photo was taken, but it reminded me of those pigeons we often see when driving on that bridge over the bayou. And we are so spied on as a society anymore, and our right to privacy has been so completely compromised, that the pigeon story almost has credibility.

I just read a short story on http://www.Infowars.com for March 9th which started out with: “Former Representative Dennis Kucinich  warned the Vault 7 data dump by WickiLeaks  demonstrates the United States is sliding down a slippery slope towards totalitarianism.” And the former Congressman said the “wholesale gathering of the nation’s ‘haystack’ of information by the government’has eroded the concept of a’right to privacy’.” Kucinich has never been one of my favorite politicians, but he has a valid point here.

The article also noted: “Kucinich argued the Vault 7 revelations, as well as legislation like the Patriot Act,  have created a constitutional crisis, and called on the American people to demand the government end its mass surveillance.”

And, there was another article, also on Infowars, for March 7th, by Paul Joseph Watson, that stated: “According to Judge Andrew Napolitano, the intelligence community is petrified of a congressional investigation into claims that Barack Obama spied on Donald Trump because it would expose the fact that every American is under mass surveillance and that their conversations are all being digitally recorded by the NSA” (Emphasis mine).

According to some articles I have read (and I have a batch of them sitting here) the Vault 7 documents show how the CIA hacked telephones, TVs and computers. From the WickiLeaks we find out that “CIA has an espionage division more powerful than NSA with no checks and balances…CIA turns smart TVs, iPhones, gaming consoles and many gadgets into open mics…CIA can spy on you through your smart TV…CIA turned all internet enabled consumer electronics in the world into listening devices.” There’s lots more, but this gives you a basic idea of what they have been doing to us (all for our own good naturally). Comforting thought isn’t it? If you and your wife are in the same room and you happen to have either your computer or your smart TV on, then whatever you say to one another is being monitored (for your own good naturally). The feds are making sure you stay “safe” (and controlled) tonight.

I don’t doubt for a New York minute that everything I do on my PC is being monitored–incoming and outgoing, whether it’s research, email, or articles for my blog spots–they already know it all, even before the people I am sending it to do. And if they are doing it to me, you can bet the farm they are doing it to you.

Just a little something to meditate on.

  2. Al,
    You are right, what you have said is what the law says, but we are in an age where those with the power just do what they want. No one upholds the law, they just ignore it when it is in the way of their agenda. These people are, literally, at war with the American public and the public hasn’t figured it out yet.

  4. Al B,
    You are so right!! Those who think government will follow the law are just naive! I DO NOT trust ANY level of government!
    I’m listening to a local radio computer call in program as I write this & minutes ago the hosts were laughing over people concerned about government spying on them. Saying things like government isn’t interested in the “average” persons’ life(my paraphrase.)
    They’re good guys donating their time every Saturday to do the show, they are smart, but these guys are naive like so many other people IMHO.

  5. And the govt. won’t be interested in them–until they somehow say the wrong thing and when they do they will be in for a rude awakening. The feds have a vested interest in keeping people naive and uninformed. This is part of what they use the public schools for. And if they say the feds have no interest in local education, then why do we have a federal dept. of “education”?
