|America Strikes Back At The Coup|
We are also noting the subsequent domestic insurgency against the military NSA's traitorous invasion of the American people.
In the first post we took a look at the Queen Jane Approximately syndrome; in the second post we took a look at one of the founders of oppression in America, and at the soul of the ideology behind the invasion being conducted from within by the military NSA which he, J. Edgar Hoover, inspired by his traitorous examples; in the third post we looked at some of the voyeurism of the NSA invaders; and in the fourth post we began to detail some of the domestic insurgency, the push-back against the insubordinate invaders and the foreign ideology they seek to infect America with permanently.
Today, we will continue to detail the domestic insurgency that is fighting back against the coup which is in progress.
First off, there are movements in state legislative bodies that are designed to put a stop to the invasion by the military NSA, one state at a time:
The state-level effort to turn off water and electricity to the National Security Agency (NSA) got a major boost today as legislators in Tennessee introduced a bill to ban the state from providing material support to the federal agency.In addition to these states, various bills in the U.S. Congress are also making their way around, bills that are designed to stop the coup in its tracks.
A long-standing secretive NSA computing facility calls Oak Ridge home. According to NSA researcher James Bamford, the NSA runs most data it gathers “from code breaking to word captures,” through computers at Oak Ridge and NSA headquarters in Ft. Meade, Md.
The Tennessee Fourth Amendment Protection Act was introduced by State Sen. Stacey Campfield (R-Knoxville) late Tuesday evening. Rep. Andy Holt (R-Dresden) will file the companion bill in the House. [Tennessee bill takes on NSA encryption-breaking facility at Oak Ridge]
The state level campaign to turn off power and electricity to the NSA got a big boost Wednesday.
In a bipartisan effort, Washington became first state with a physical NSA location to consider the Fourth Amendment Protection Act,
designed to make life extremely difficult for the massive spy agency.
Rep. David Taylor (R-Moxee) and Rep Rep. Luis Moscoso (D- Mountlake Terrace) introduced HB2272 late Tuesday night. Based on model language drafted by the OffNow coalition, it would make it the policy of Washington “to refuse material support, participation, or assistance to any federal agency which claims the power, or with any federal law, rule, regulation, or order which purports to authorize, the collection of electronic data or metadata of any person pursuant to any action not based on a warrant.”
Practically speaking, the bill prohibits state and local agencies from providing any material support to the NSA within their jurisdiction. This includes barring government-owned utilities from providing water and electricity. It makes information gathered without a warrant by the NSA and shared with law enforcement inadmissible in state court. It blocks public universities from serving as NSA research facilities or recruiting grounds. And it disincentivizes corporations attempting to fill needs not met in the absence of state cooperation.

Likewise, one federal agency has called the invasion by the military NSA illegal:
The National Security Agency's practice of collecting and storing data on all phone calls is illegal and should be shut down – that's the conclusion of the Privacy and Civil Liberties Oversight Board, an independent executive branch agency. Its board members are empowered to investigate and analyze classified material. They're the latest independent voice to cast doubt on various NSA claims.(The Atlantic, emphasis added; cf. Guardian, Report, or Report PDF). This is not a partisan issue, it is an invasion-of-the-American-People issue.
"In its report, the board lays out what may be the most detailed critique of the government’s once-secret legal theory behind the program," reports Charlie Savage of the New York Times, who obtained an advance copy.
For more information on the board see: Official Privacy and Civil Rights Oversight Board Website, ACLU: Privacy and Civil Liberties Oversight Board, Federal Register: Privacy and Civil Liberties Oversight Board, and Wikipedia: Privacy and Civil Liberties Oversight Board.

The five states which I think are likely to continue resisting the military NSA invasion with legislation, like that in Tennessee and Washington, are Oregon, California, Alaska, New Hampshire, and Maine (assuming they have NSA facilities in their state).
Support bills in your state which are designed to stop the invasion of the American people by the traitorous military NSA, or ask your state legislator to introduce one.
