At the end of the first week in April, a mysterious box was spotted on a Phoenix utility pole that aroused the suspicions of a homeowner in the area who believed the box had surveillance cameras inside. After the homeowner involved the media, several days later The bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms and Explosives came forward, admitting that the box reported belonged to them, and that it was part of an ongoing investigation. Apparently the box was part of what has come to be known as a typical “Top Secret Obama” investigation, because neither local law enforcement, nor the electric company that owned the pole knew anything about the box, or ever saw a warrant. That seems to be the way Obama likes his investigations: As illegal as can be, and with zero oversight.
In the following video by Dahboo77, he explains how the box in Phoenix was the exact same type of box that Lavoy Finicum spotted on a pole outside the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge in Burns, Oregon. To find out about that box, Finicum climbed the pole and actually looked inside the strange box. Sure enough it was filled with surveillance cameras, so he ripped them all out. For anyone who doesn’t know, Lavoy Finicum was later assassinated in cold blood by the FBI.
First, check out the video below giving you a brief background of the most recent case of Uncle Barry’s government gone wild, and then my intention for the rest of this post is to demonstrate other instances where the feds have been caught doing similar things. I suspect by the end of this post, some of you may not feel comfortable walking out of your home. Remember all this on election day, and whatever you do… DO NOT MISS THE FINAL EXAMPLE AT THE BOTTOM. Science fiction movies haven't even started using that kind of technology yet, but good old Uncle Sam is…
Before we get into the Phoenix story below, to REALLY understand how much you are being spied on, the earliest I could trace back easily obtainable information was back to 2008. When I first came across this back in 2012, there were three interviews with Dr. Katherine Albrecht linked below, but now only the second one is still active. I left the other two links so you could see their titles in the event someone wants to look for them.
For anyone who doesn't know, Dr. Katherine Albrecht is an internationally known privacy researcher, consumer advocate, bestselling author, and nationally syndicated radio host. Katherine holds a Doctorate in Human Development and Consumer Education from Harvard University, has studied at the MIT Media lab, and received a Masters from Harvard in Technology, Innovation, and Education.
Katherine has authored pro-privacy legislation, testified before the Federal Trade Commission and numerous state legislatures, and was appointed as a consumer technology expert by NH Governor John Lynch. She co-authored the bestseller Spychips, has granted over 2,000 media interviews with news outlets around the globe, including CBS, NBC, CNN, NPR, Fox News, Good Morning America, the BBC, Wired Magazine, The New York Times, and hundreds more. Katherine is currently serving as the Associate Editor of the IEEE Technology & Society Magazine, co-authors an online security blog for eHow, and she heads the 18,000 member consumer privacy organization, CASPIAN.
BOTTOM LINE: Dr. Katherine Albrecht is the real deal, and she was warning back in 2008 about how out of control government was!!! Remember, only the second one below works:

Even though the particular video below was uploaded in 2013, in the Interview with Dr. Katherine Albrecht, and in the article by Joseph Watson below, the equipment in the video below is the same as was being used in 2009 that they talk about.
Back in 2009, Paul Joseph Watson reported:
The Department of Homeland Security is set to activate a national license plate tracking system that will be shared with law enforcement, allowing DHS officers to take photos of any license plate using their smartphone and upload it to a database which will include a “hot list” of “target vehicles”.
The details are included in a PDF attachment uploaded yesterday to the Federal Business Opportunities website under a solicitation entitled “National License Plate Recognition Database.”
The system will “track vehicle license plate numbers that pass through cameras or are voluntarily entered into the system from a variety of sources (access control systems, asset recovery specialists, etc.) and uploaded to share with law enforcement” in order to help locate “criminal aliens and absconders.”
The technology shown above and being used by DHS is not “new” technology to many cities. For the sake of the sanity of the citizens, in many of the cities using this technology, the citizens probably don't even know they are victims, otherwise there would be protests without a doubt, and rightfully so. With the device shown above, in many areas DHS has taken it upon themselves to install RFID chips in every license plate, and then they have scanners virtually EVERYWHERE tracking those chips.
The scanners are on bridges, on roads, in tunnels… you name it, and most have a highly intrusive CAMERA capability, so when they spot your Car/Chip coming, they begin snapping pictures of you and the family. Isn’t that sweet? All this time you thought no one was watching when you're loading the groceries into the car. Don't you feel better now that you know you're not only being watched, there is a file with pictures of you in it. You're like a mini-celebrity or something! GREAT HUH?
REMEMBER: "IT'S FOR YOUR OWN PROTECTION!"
FAST FORWARD TO 2012, THE CAMERAS SEEM TO BE EVERYWHERE!
Before getting to the incidents in Seattle in 2013 below, it’s worth mentioning in New York I also followed a case where‘Dangerous’ camera boxes mounted ‘without authorization’ along New York streets. That was another case where neither law enforcement nor the electric company knew who put the devices up, or where the information being collected was sent.
The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms and Explosives has claimed ownership of a mysterious box that was removed from a utility pole in Phoenix, Arizona.
Phoenix resident Brian Clegg was concerned about a box he witnessed being installed on a power pole. Clegg said the box was facing his house and he believed it may have had cameras inside. The pole was owned by Arizona’s largest power provider, SRP, who claimed no one had permission to put the box on their pole. Brian Clegg says shortly afterwards SRP sent a crew to remove the box.
Shortly after ABC15 investigated the matter, the bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms and Explosives(ATF), a branch of the U.S. Department of Justice, acknowledged installing the box as part of an ongoing investigation. Officials with the ATF would not provide details about their alleged investigation and would not confirm if they were conducting surveillance in the area.
“I don’t feel safer,” said Brian Clegg. “I feel that my privacy has been violated.”
SRP told ABC15 they were unaware the box had been installed and that the ATF has to notify them if they are going install something on their property. The ATF told ABC15 they can put security measures in place without asking for permission. Obviously the federal government feels comfortable doing whatever it wants to do, whenever it wants to, law be damned.
One other interesting aspect of Clegg’s story is the fact that he claims the crew who installed the box came in a truck marked “Field Pros.” The thought of undercover government agents installing surveillance equipment while masquerading as utility workers is highly disturbing and sounds like a scene right out of a Hollywood film. Unfortunately, Phoenix is not the only city to have surveillance equipment installed by an agency of the federal government.
In November 2013, Seattle residents pushed back against the installation of several mesh network nodes attached to utility poles around the downtown area. The nodes were purchased by the Seattle Police Department via a $2.7 million grant from the Department of Homeland Security. The American Civil Liberties Union of Washington and privacy advocates were immediately concerned about the ability of the nodes to gather user information via the Wi-Fi connection.
The video below comes from a story I did about the incident mentioned above in Seattle in 2013. In the video, you’ll learn that the city of Seattle's police department along with DHS were installing 'WHITE BOXES' on utility poles, buildings, towers and lampposts all over the city (without permission or warrants) that did WAY more than just eavesdrop or take pictures. The secret spying contraptions gave warrantless government officials massive abilities to track EVERY CITIZEN in the city in real time, with voice recognition, GPS of their last 1000 locations, facial recognition software, and more.
“How accurately can it geo-locate and track the movements of your phone, laptop, or any other wireless device by its MAC address? Can the network send that information to a database, allowing the SPD to reconstruct who was where at any given time, on any given day, without a warrant? Can the network see you now?” asked Seattle newspaper The Stranger.
Initially the Seattle PD was reluctant to speak about the network. However, the police ultimately yielded to public opinion and decided, “the wireless mesh network will be deactivated until city council approves a draft policy and until there’s an opportunity for vigorous public debate.”
Although the situation in Seattle played out in favor of the people, we must recognize that there is a growing partnership between the surveillance agencies of the federal government and the increasingly militarized local police forces in the United States. As Activist Post previously reported, a new policy from the Obama administration will make it easier for the NSA to share information between law enforcement agencies with very little oversight.
The Obama administration is on the verge of permitting the National Security Agency to share more of the private communications it intercepts with other American intelligence agencies without first applying any privacy protections to them, according to officials familiar with the deliberations.
The new rule changes would allow federal agencies such as the FBI to access streams of information gathered by the spy agency, “including emails, phone calls and location data.” These federal agencies would then have the ability to pass the data to state and local law enforcement. As the Times points out, “all of this can happen without any congressional or judicial oversight under a Reagan era executive order known as EO 12333.”
WHILE WERE ON THE TOPIC OF WITHOUT ANY OVERSIGHT…
In the video below, Paul Joseph Watson of Infowars reports on a set of 17 Mysterious 'Fake' Cell Phone Towers Found Across America back in 2014. Apparently while ISIS was just a JV team not worthy of Obama’s time or attention, spying on the American people was…
Obama knows all this is illegal, he just doesn’t care! He knows the Supreme Court has held a person does not have a reasonable expectation of privacy on a public road. However, the Supreme Court decided the use of devices to track a defendant’s “movements from one place to another,” and tracking the defendant’s every movement twenty-four hours a day violated a reasonable expectation of privacy, because no agency would have the resources for a team of agents to do that. United States v. Maynard, 615 F.3d 544, 558 (D.C. Cir. 2010). Since then, U.S. Supreme Court has ruled on the issue of twenty-four hour GPS surveillance, and it ruled twenty-four hour surveillance with a device does constitute a search, and therefore without a warrant is unlawful.
United States v. Jones, 132 S.Ct. 945 (2012).
THIS IS THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION WE’RE TALKING ABOUT HERE…
LAWS? LAWS? OBAMA DON’T NEED NO STINKING LAWS…
Now that technology has advanced even further, there is almost no limit to the types of nefarious conduct His Highnesses Royal Ass Barack Obama will engage in… see the following:
The rule change by the Obama administration is only one of several tools that both local police and federal agencies have at their disposal. From drones to stingrays, gunshot detectors and automatic license plate readers – the State has an arsenal of spy equipment. How can the free hearts and minds of the world live free, happy, and abundant lives with the ever-present eyes and ears of Big Brother? We must educate ourselves about the tools used for surveillance and oppression and begin working to redirect the technology at the tyrants. We must persevere, be courageous, and shine a light on the darkness.
Since the article at Activist Post brought up the drones, I’ll close with these fun links before sharing the NSA’s big toy!
Finally, as if the government having all those toys doesn’t make you feel all warm and fuzzy… get a load of this: I’m not a scientist, so I don’t know how this is even possible, but the NSA’s spying technology is so advanced, they let’s say for example you had a computer sitting in the bottom of a closet, in a mountain cabin, a million miles from anywhere, and underneath a bunch of clothes or whatever, and you’ve never even plugged the computer into an AC socket or the Internet… Ever…
THE NSA CAN STILL READ THE HARD DRIVE SOMEHOW…
NEXT TIME SOMEONE SAYS THEY AREN'T ON TWITTER BECAUSE THE GOVERNMENT SPIES…
LET THEM KNOW THE NSA KNOWS ALL ANYWAY… MIGHT AS WELL TWEET!
