    A newly released intelligence agency report has revealed that the NSA’s collection of US phone records has increased from 151 to 534 million since 2016, despite the implementation of a new surveillance system meant to limit bulk collection of records. Only the numbers and time of a call or text message is recorded, they say.

    Overall increases in surveillance hauls were both mystifying and alarming coming years after Snowden’s leaks, privacy advocates said. “The intelligence community’s transparency has yet to extend to explaining dramatic increases in their collection,” said Robyn Greene, policy counsel at the Washington-based Open Technology Institute that focuses on digital issues.

    Everyone you could vote for is Jesuit trained or mentored or in the case of Hilary VP is a Jesuit. All presidential hopefuls go before Jesuits at Al smith who help hide the hundreds of thousand of child rapes at Al Smith.
    Trump and his family Jesuit trained, Obama's first paycheck was from the Jesuits, Clinton Jesuit trained and mentored. Just about anyone in the media is Jesuit trained or catholic. If you have spent time reading the CCC then you
    understand why the Vatican has more Jesuit colleges in the USA than anywhere in the world. All the worlds large companies all meet with the pope, google, facebook including all in the EU.
    In 1982 the pope was recognized by all faiths as the supreme spiritual leader per catholic doctrine. The Jesuits call the CIA = Catholics in action, which is not my words. The have taken over all branches via Red Mass, all major police
    forces via Blue Mass, they control both parties and the supreme court. Where ever she flourishes tyranny follows and we have a thousand years and close to 50 million reason why freedoms are lost and tyranny is taking place in the USA.

    There is always plenty of money for the government's spying and wars. Too bad the same cannot be said about all the social programs.

    Are you ignorant to what most US tax dollars go towards?... http://www.usdebtclock.org/ Look at large budget items... Social programs already have over triple the debt defense does and defense is what enables economic stability. Free lesson.

    If you have any proof of this, that is from credible sources. Consider actually releasing it to credible media.

    Until then, posting such here is going to do nothing.

    The to and from of 534 million phone calls has been recorded! OMG! THEY ARE SPYING ON EVERY ONE!


    Well considering there are 300+ million people in the US most of whom make several calls a day 500 million seems to represent about 5-8 hours worth of calls over two years. Looks pretty targeted to me. IF you ain't callin a known ISIS safe house in Syria ain't nobody care about you.
