26. Proto-Fascist Infrastructure: The NSA, Booz Allen, Unysis, Verizon... And The Koch Bros.

Thank you for the heads-up on the Koch-privatized intel, MinM! Keeping things off the books is a speciality of spooks banking at Nugan Hand, a system now copied by banksters everywhere.



Proto-Fascist Infrastructure: The NSA, Booz Allen, Unysis, Verizon... And The Koch Bros.

EXCERPT...

ALEC is fascistic corporatist cartel who has been able to infiltrate our entire system of government, both at the federal and at the states level. They mainly operate behind the scenes, but they are responsible for pushing thousands of laws and ordinances specifically-designed to weaken human rights, workers rights, and environmental protections so the citizenry can be manipulated, exploited, and enslaved, and the environment can be ravaged in the name of profit.

Some of the key players behind ALEC are people like the Koch brothers. In the latest news about the NSA, one person of interest is U.S. District Judge Roger Vinson.

U.S. District Judge Roger Vinson, who signed an order requiring Verizon to give the National Security Agency telephone records for tens of millions of American customers, attended an expense-paid judicial seminar sponsored by a libertarian think tank that featured lectures from a vocal proponent of executive branch powers.

And guess who funds the organization that paid for this seminar:

From 2005 to 2009, FREE received a total of $430,000 in general operating support from the Claude R. Lambe Charitable Foundation, of which billionaire businessman Charles Koch is a director.

In the New York Times article "Leaker’s Employer Is Paid to Maintain Government Secrets," published on June 9th, it is reported the following:

* Thousands of people formerly employed by the government, and still approved to deal with classified information, now do essentially the same work for private companies.
* The Obama administration’s chief intelligence official, James R. Clapper Jr., is a former Booz Allen executive.
* The official who held that post in the Bush administration, John M. McConnell, now works for Booz Allen.

“The national security apparatus has been more and more privatized and turned over to contractors,” said Danielle Brian, the executive director of the Project on Government Oversight, a nonprofit group that studies federal government contracting. “This is something the public is largely unaware of, how more than a million private contractors are cleared to handle highly sensitive matters.”

Don't know how I missed that story. Oh, well. Not that Corporate Owned News is just another wing of Capitalism's Invisible Army or anything, they just can't control people with, eh, integrity without violence and all that MK/ULTRA.
