Feds Track Americans in Real-Time via Credit Cards, Grocery Loyalty Cards

Federal law enforcement agencies have been tracking Americans in real-time using credit cards, loyalty cards and travel reservations without getting a court order, a new document released under a government sunshine request shows.

The document, obtained by security researcher Christopher Soghoian, explains how so-called “Hotwatch” orders allow for real-time tracking of individuals in a criminal investigation via credit card companies, rental car agencies, calling cards, and even grocery store loyalty programs. The revelation sheds a little more light on the Justice Department’s increasing power and willingness to surveil Americans with little to no judicial or Congressional oversight.

For credit cards, agents can get real-time information on a person’s purchases by writing their own subpoena, followed up by a order from a judge that the surveillance not be disclosed. Agents can also go the traditional route — going to a judge, proving probable cause and getting a search warrant — which means the target will eventually be notified they were spied on.

The document suggests that the normal practice is to ask for all historical records on an account or individual from a credit card company, since getting stored records is generally legally easy....

“The professorial Fed Chairman, his ever-whitening beard and ever-receding hairline making him look ever-the-more gnomish, loosened his tie and poured himself a drink at the 7:30 open. Perhaps the great ship would not sink, he hoped. The Fed had key-stroked hundreds of billions of dollars throughout the night and had managed to prop up the wobbly futures markets. Their hope was that the animal spirits could be tamed by the NYSE open. But the entire system sank right from the bell.”

The United States Constitution, Truth Vs. Error

I am not a law professor or constitutional scholar but I do know that I have a deep love and respect for the Constitution of the United States.  I also regard those who created it to be men of honor who wrote this inspired document because they not only wanted to be free but they wanted their posterity to be free too.

        The main purpose of the U.S. Constitution is to limit the power of government by dividing it up into three separate but equal branches: the legislative branch (Congress), the executive branch (President), and the judicial branch (Supreme Court).  Each branch of government was limited in its power and responsibilities by clearly delineating in the document what it could do.  Originally, if something was not listed in the Constitution the government could not do it.  With government’s powers limited the people would become freer.

        In the beginning the country seemed to get off to a good start.  Certainly the Constitution wasn’t a perfect document.  However, it produced the greatest amount of freedom mankind had ever experienced. ...

How to Legally Refuse to Participate in the Census Survey

Hayden’s Note:

I know this is a lengthy post, but it is incredibly educational.  If nothing else, please scroll down towards the bottom and read the last several paragraphs that detail my plan of attack [To all IRS/DHS listening, that means “non-violent response”] when my Census Form arrives.  Print it out and use it as a template for yourself!

I recently heard someone say the time has come for some civil disobedience and the intrusive nature of the Census makes it the perfect place to start.  I could not agree more. The American people need to draw a line in the sand and tell the reprobates in the federal government we will no longer tolerate their usurpations of power.

If the American people are going to make a stand and go toe to toe with the federal government, then they need a basic understanding of some constitutional principles because these principles are universal and pertain to every power exercised by the federal government.

Constitutional Principles

Principle No. 1. The Constitution established a separation of power between the States and their federal government. ...
