Congressional Spy Satellites

Shocking News: congressional satellites of the NSA are the same guys whose campaigns get funded by the defense industry.

Overall, political action committees and employees from defense and intelligence firms such as Lockheed Martin, Boeing, United Technologies, Honeywell International, and others ponied up $12.97 million in donations for a two-year period ending December 31, 2012, according to the analysis, which MapLight performed with financing data from OpenSecrets. Lawmakers who voted to continue the NSA dragnet-surveillance program averaged $41,635 from the pot, whereas House members who voted to repeal authority averaged $18,765.

    Yup.  This is EXACTLY why I don’t bother to vote.  It is all about ‘buying’ votes and if you are not in the top 20 list of contributors, you are a nothing.  So, I laugh when I read we are a “democratic republic?”  Could not be further from the truth!  Fact of the matter is we are an advanced oligarchy where the select few (read: folks with money) dictate our nation’s direction!   The Wall Street meltdown of 2008 and the subsequent bailout with taxpayer money should put to rest any doubts about the truth!

    Just proves the truth!! If you pay these politicians enough they will say fuck the Constitution and the Rights of americans as along as they get paid enough!! Spying on Americans is nothing short of TREASON and Espionage against America! All these COMMUNISTS need to be hauled into jail, tried, and executed! They have shown that they refuse to uphold their oath of office!

    I noticed they have not released the names of the police involved like they normally do when a non police commits a crime.   The names must be known by large numbers of people at this point anyway.  

    “The Detroit Police SWAT team arrested a Detroit police sergeant, a 20-year veteran of the police force, when he arrived [Saturday] at the 12th precinct on the city’s west side. ”

    Waiting for someone to show up at their place of work makes sense.  Why didn’t they raid the persons house at 1 in the morning like they normally do?
