The ITAC Threat Assessments of the Vancouver 2010 Winter Olympics January 5, 2012
The Integrated Terrorism Assessment Centre, formerly known as the Integrated Threat Assessment Centre is an organization that provides combined threat assessments. It is primarily led by CSIS, and all the actual CSIS releases that I've seen thus far appear to come from the ITAC.
I recently received over 300 pages of documents from CSIS and the ITAC about the Olympics. These documents mostly range from high level documents such as the document about threats posed by militants and extremists. If you examine some of the documents, other than the redactions, it reads very much like the talking points of the Olympic Resistance Network itself, which correctly highlights the issues with the Vancouver 2010 Winter Olympic Games and the way that the Olympics and the G20 created the Joint Intelligence Groups, which combined is the largest single domestic police spying operation in Canadian history.
...Also, it appears that thew V2010ISU-JIG was monitoring the International Day Against Police Brutality March under "Domestic Extremism."
Don't Take the Vote Away From Seniors - Posted: 1/19/12 11:00 AM ET
According to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, Ruthelle, of remote Brokaw WI (pop. 107), does not have a driver's license, and lacks a birth certificate needed to get a state identification card. She has a Social Security card, a Medicare card, and a baptism certificate. Even if she were to pay $20 to get a birth certificate, her maiden name was misspelled by the attending physician at her home birth. To rectify this, she would need to petition the court and pay a $200 fee. Ruthelle, an elected member of her Village Board since 1996, recently became a plaintiff in a law suit to block the new law, which was authored by Governor Scott Walker. www.huffingtonpost.com/barbara-j-easterling/dont-take-the-vote-away-f_b_1214205.html

Feds hide data on domestic use of drones Published: 12 January, 2012, 23:24
The domestic use of stealth drones to survey America from the skies is no joke. The Department of Homeland Security has acknowledged that the US government has used the planes on the home front for years, but why and how is largely unknown.
An advocacy group aims to change that.
The Electronic Frontier Foundation, a non-profit based out of San Francisco, California, filed a Freedom of Information Act request back in April to learn more about domestic drone use in America. Eight months later, the Department of Transportation (and its subdivision that deals directly with domestic drones, the Federal Aviation Administration), has failed to follow through. On Tuesday this week, the EFF responded by formally filing a suit against the DoT, “Demanding data on certifications and authorizations the agency has issued for the operation of unmanned aircraft, also known as drones.” rt.com/usa/news/domestic-drone-why-us-655/
Pilots worry about safety of allowing domestic drones in US skies - 2 days ago Airline pilots and privacy rights activists are fretting over a provision of the FAA funding bill passed by Congress that would open up the U.S. skies to drones for law enforcement and other domestic use. The Senate late Monday passed a bill authorizing $63.4 billion for the Federal Aviation Administration over four years. The House passed the bill last week, and it now goes to President Barack Obama for his signature. usnews.msnbc.msn.com/_news/2012/02/07/10344710-pilots-worry-about-safety-of-allowing-domestic-drones-in-us-skies
The U.N. Threat to Internet Freedom Top-down, international regulation is antithetical to the Net, which has flourished under its current governance model.
On Feb. 27, a diplomatic process will begin in Geneva that could result in a new treaty giving the United Nations unprecedented powers over the Internet. Dozens of countries, including Russia and China, are pushing hard to reach this goal by year's end. As Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin said last June, his goal and that of his allies is to establish "international control over the Internet" through the International Telecommunication Union (ITU), a treaty-based organization under U.N. auspices.
If successful, these new regulatory proposals would upend the Internet's flourishing regime, which has been in place since 1988. That year, delegates from 114 countries gathered in Australia to agree to a treaty that set the stage for dramatic liberalization of international telecommunications. This insulated the Internet from economic and technical regulation and quickly became the greatest deregulatory success story of all time.
Since the Net's inception, engineers, academics, user groups and others have convened in bottom-up nongovernmental organizations to keep it operating and thriving through what is known as a "multi-stakeholder" governance model. This consensus-driven private-sector approach has been the key to the Net's phenomenal success.

America’s new data centre makes UK surveillance plans seem petty April 2nd, 2012
In the small town of Bluffdale in the Utah desert, the US government is halfway to completing a gargantuan complex designed to store and trawl through billions of phone calls, emails, and other global communications. As the UK government reveals its own plans to carry out mass surveillance, a lengthy piece in May’s Wired reveals the full extent of the US’s ambitions to capture and spy on almost everything that is said online or on the phone.
The Utah Data Center is the new hub in the National Security Agency’s (NSA) network of surveillance centres: a sprawling $2bn (£1.25bn) complex that takes the US one step closer to ‘total information awareness’.
The centre is so big it’s hard to get your head around the figures quoted in the article. Ten thousand builders are working on it. It will use an estimated $40m of electricity every year, according to one estimate. Much of this will be spent powering four 2,300 sq m halls filled with servers capable of storing a truly enormous amount of data – Wired mentions Pentagon ambitions to store yottabytes of data (septillion bytes of data).
Some were in talks with Nick Clegg's office on Monday as they sought "clarification" over whether the legislation, expected to be presented in the Queen's Speech in May, would enable the government's interception agency, GCHQ [Government Communications Headquarters], to access the content of communications without a warrant. www.guardian.co.uk/world/2012/apr/02/email-surveillance-lib-dem-rebellion
RPT-COLUMN-An end to phones in every home? David Cay Johnston Wed Mar 28, 2012 7:00am EDT
By David Cay Johnston
(Reuters) - The guarantee of landline telephone service at almost any address, a legal right many Americans may not even know they have, is quietly being legislated away in our U.S. state capitals.
AT&T and Verizon, the dominant telephone companies, want to end their 99-year-old universal service obligation known as "provider of last resort." They say universal landline service is a costly and unfair anachronism that is no longer justified because of a competitive market for voice services.
Fence: The 17.5 km fence has 900 day and night vision cameras and is topped with many strands of 5,000 volt electrified wire. It gives the feeling of a prison rather than of a party venue.
But there is a large and profitable industry supplying equipment and research to feed the paranoia of a new security mindset identified by author Matt Carr who comments…
A new genre of military futurology has emerged which owes as much to apocalyptic Hollywood movies as it does to the cold war tradition of ‘scenario planning. Often outlandish and bizarre in its prophecies, and always dystopian, this new military futurism sees threats to the western way of life emanating not only from rogue states, weapons of mass destruction and terrorism but also from resurgent nationalism, conflicts over dwindling resources, migration, disease, organised crime, abrupt climate change and the emergence of failed cities where social disorder is rife. counterolympicsnetwork.wordpress.com/resources/london-2012-one-big-party-or-one-big-prison/
US House passes controversial CISPA cybersecurity bill, now onto the Senate April 26, 2012 06:38 pm
The US House of Representatives has just passed the controversial Cyber Intelligence Sharing and Protection Act, or CISPA (HR 3523) by a vote of 248 to 168. The bill passed mostly along party lines, backed by House Republicans. While the bill is intended to safeguard the US against "cyber threats," critics say that it is too vague and broad, and would give government and military intelligence agencies the ability to inspect private data without the use of warrants. While the bill hasn't garnered the same level of outrage as SOPA did in recent months from companies like Google or Facebook (Facebook supports CISPA), web advocates have been vocal in their opposition to the bill.
The Obama administration has already strongly opposed CISPA and threatened to veto it, so it's not likely that this particular version of the bill will pass. The White House says that the bill lacks civilian oversight and privacy protections, and that "without clear legal protections and independent oversight, information sharing legislation will undermine the public's trust in the government as well as in the internet by undermining fundamental privacy, confidentiality, civil liberties, and consumer protections." Still, the White House has signaled that it is interested in some form of cyber security bill, so this won't likely be its final act.
We'll be covering CISPA in more detail, and will let you know what happens to the bill on the Senate side in the coming days. Be sure to check the final vote results if you would like to see how your representative voted.
Online surveillance bill critics are siding with ‘child pornographers’: Vic Toews Last Updated: Feb 14, 2012 1:02 PM ET
Opponents of a controversial bill that would give authorities new powers to increase online monitoring of Canadians have been accused of siding with “child pornographers” by Safety Minister Vic Toews.
The so-called “lawful access” legislation, tabled in the House of Commons on Tuesday and expected to pass under a Conservative majority government, means Internet service providers and cellphone companies must hand over basic subscriber information of customers to law enforcement agencies.
Opponents of the proposed law claim it is ‘untenable’, but Mr. Toews said yesterday that people “can either stand with us or with the child pornographers.”
Minister of Public Safety Vic Toews speaks during Question Period in the House of Commons on Parliament Hill in Ottawa, on Feb. 13.

Senate Passes Bill Requiring Black Boxes in All New Cars Apr 20, 2012 5:46 AM
The U.S. Senate has passed a bill requiring all new cars manufactured in the United States be fitted with black box data recorders. Senate Bill 1813 [PDF] was passed by the Senate and is just waiting for approval from the U.S. House of Representatives, InfoWars reports.
Section 31406 of the "Moving Ahead for Progress in the 21st Century Act" (MAP-21) bill calls for "Mandatory Event Data Recorders" to be installed in new vehicles, starting in the year 2015.
The bill states that within 180 days of the enactment of the bill, the Secretary must revise part 563 of title 49 (Code of Federal Regulations) "to require, beginning with model year 2015, that new passenger motor vehicles sold in the United States be equipped with an event data recorder that meets the requirements under that part."
Of course … the Secret Service, the FBI, the DEA, the National Security Agency, the Office of Intelligence and Analysis, the Office of Terrorism and Financial Intelligence, the Bureau of Intelligence and Research, the Office of Intelligence and Counterintelligence, Coast Guard Intelligence, the National Reconnaissance Office, the National Geospatial Intelligence Agency …
CIA admits 'concealing significant actions' from Congress under Bush - Thursday 9 July 2009 16.10 BST The Central Intelligence Agency has admitted "concealing significant actions" from Congress for years during the Bush administration, prompting the chairman of the House of Representatives intelligence committee to accuse the agency of having "affirmatively lied". The admission raised fresh questions over what political pressure was applied to the CIA to manipulate and distort intelligence in order to mislead Congress and the public over a range of issues from Iraq's alleged weapons of mass destruction to the use of torture against al-Qaida detainees. www.guardian.co.uk/world/2009/jul/09/cia-congress-leon-panetta-bush
