Attorney General Eric Holder has asked a federal judge to give his Department of Justice (DOJ) supervision of the Apple App Store and iTunes.

The DOJ's demand is a disgusting attempted government power-grab into private business. Holder's request follows a decision by Denise Cote, a New York Federal District Judge. Cote ruled that Apple violates the US Anti-Trust Laws, which are designed to prevent monopolies and fixed prices. Apple plans to fight the federal ruling tooth and nail, and will almost certainly appeal.

President Obama visited Tennessee last week where he was greeted by a mass of protesters. In fact, the entire state seemed to react.

Vulnerable republican legislators who are under fire for their more moderate, liberal positions distanced themselves from the President, and then came a surprise from the Chattanooga Times Free Press, which is a local newspaper. An article headlined "Take Your Jobs Plan and Shove it, Mr. President" ran front and center. The article was written by editorial manager, Drew Johnson. Being a medium sized newspaper it is not often that their articles make headlines across the country. However, Johnson changed that. Media from around the country picked up Johnson's editorial and it became the most read article ever published by the paper.

The federal government is remotely activating the microphones and cameras in Android smartphones and Windows laptops, according to a report published by the Wall Street Journal.

Citing a "former US official," the Journal says court documents reveal that that the FBI is using a variety of "hacking" tools to ramp up the scope of the surveillance of millions of Americans, keeping many unwittingly under the watchful eye of Washington. When contacted by The New American, a media spokesperson for Google had no comment. One of the Journal's anonymous sources described a part of the FBI called the "Remote Operations Unit." Agents in this specialized unit prefer, if possible, to install the remote control software by uploading to the target's computer using a USB flash drive. When the g-men-come-hackers can't get access to the target's computer, they install the surveillance software over the Internet "using a document or link that loads software when the person clicks or views it."

It has been interesting to me that the most frequent question that I have been asked in the aftermath of our, "Civil Liberties and Security in an Age of Terrorism," is regarding my description of our cell phones as a government listening device.

Even though the information that U.S. surveillance agencies can remotely turn on any cell phone and use it as a listening device for conversations in its vicinity has been available for many years, this is apparently news to many-and news they are reluctant to accept. As previously posted here and elsewhere, the government is spying on you, using your own cell phone and computer, and their drones, and they are storing every communication indefinitely.

Reuters has an important scoop on the use and concealment of anti-terrorism data intelligence on Americans involved with disfavored intoxicants...

A secretive U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration unit is funneling information from intelligence intercepts, wiretaps, informants and a massive database of telephone records to authorities across the nation to help them launch criminal investigations of Americans. Although these cases rarely involve national security issues, documents reviewed by Reuters show that law enforcement agents have been directed to conceal how such investigations truly begin - not only from defense lawyers but also sometimes from prosecutors and judges. The undated documents show that federal agents are trained to "recreate" the investigative trail to effectively cover up where the information originated, a practice that some experts say violates a defendant's Constitutional right to a fair trial.

Documents provided by two House members demonstrate how they are blocked from exercising any oversight over domestic surveillance

Members of Congress have been repeatedly thwarted when attempting to learn basic information about the National Security Agency (NSA) and the secret FISA court which authorizes its activities, documents provided by two House members demonstrate. From the beginning of the NSA controversy, the agency's defenders have insisted that Congress is aware of the disclosed programs and exercises robust supervision over them. "These programs are subject to congressional oversight and congressional reauthorization and congressional debate," President Obama said the day after the first story on NSA bulk collection of phone records was published in this space. "And if there are members of Congress who feel differently, then they should speak up."

Hacking people is easy

About 1.4 million people in the US have a "top secret" security clearance. But what happens when an attractive man or woman friends them on Facebook, asking for career advice and wondering what they're working on? Jordan Harbinger, a dating coach based in Los Angeles, wanted to give a talk at the hacker convention Def Con. He was in his living room chatting with two clients who happen to work for a massive defense corporation that contracts with the US military when the pair started blabbing about their top secret projects. That gave Harbinger an idea for an experiment in social engineering, the dark art of influencing people to act against their own interest: what would it take for a defense contractor to reveal classified information to a total stranger?

For years libertarians have been saying that the encroachment of government on the lives and liberties of Americans is reaching a point of no return, and for this we have been disdained as alarmists, "conspiracy theorists," tin-foil hat-wearers of the worst sort. Tyranny in America? Impossible! cried smug liberals and equally complacent conservatives (and a minuscule minority of fake "libertarians"): this is not only "extremism," they said, but also downright subversive. The danger, they implied, came not from government overreach but from "anti-government extremists" who had to be closely watched by law enforcement. The Snowden revelations have confirmed that, if anything, the warnings by libertarians and others radically understated the problem and the imminence of the danger to the Constitution. For our warnings were nearly always expressed in the future tense, as a dire possibility should present trends continue. The exposure of the NSA's vast spying apparatus - constructed, "legalized," and maintained in secret by the US government - has shown that the danger is now. As that magnificent curmudgeon of the Old Right, journalist and author Garet Garrett, put it: "There are those who still think they are holding the pass against a revolution that may be coming up the road. But they are gazing in the wrong direction. The revolution is behind them. It went by in the Night of Depression, singing songs to freedom."

House Intelligence Committee Chairman Mike Rogers and many other defenders of the NSA spying program warned critics that the mass collection of our electronic communications had already stopped "dozens" of terrorist plots against the United States.

In June, NSA director General Keith Alexander claimed that the just-disclosed bulk collection of Americans' phone and other electronic records had "foiled 50 terror plots." These claims were designed to silence opponents by implying they would be partly responsible should another attack occur if they were successful in shutting down the programs. Dozens of terrorist plots thwarted by the mass collection of billions of our phone calls and e-mails. It sounds very dramatic. But now we know it was not true.

In the wake of recent news that the NSA is spying on Americans, I have been particularly struck by the argument that "if you've got nothing to hide, you've got nothing to fear."

At first blush, this argument might seem sound - after all, if the government is merely conducting anti-terrorism surveillance, non-terrorists shouldn't be affected, right? But if you look more closely, you'll see this idea is full of holes. The "nothing to hide" argument mistakenly suggests that privacy is something only criminals desire. In fact, we choose to do many things in private - sing in the shower, make love, confide in family and friends - even though they are not wrong or illegal. Who would not be embarrassed if all of their most intimate details were exposed?
