That database contains the electronic data on all Americans, including emails, text messages, social media posts, instant messages, direct messages, phone calls, geolocation identifiers, purchases made using electronic funds, banking records, and "any keystroke any American person puts into any electronic device for any reason."
This is a scary list, to be fair. The idea that a government databank holds every single datapoint from every single American is creepy enough, let alone the thought that 10,000 random people who work for the government are able to access it on demand.
If the United States still had a working government, all of this would stop immediately, and the NSA database destroyed. Instead, this surveillance state only continues to grow with each passing day, and nobody on either side of the aisle seems to be taking this breach of the Constitution seriously.
(Related: In 2013, the NSA admitted that it spies on 75 percent of all U.S. internet traffic, including emails, texts, and even voice calls – is that still true today?)
All of this first starting coming to light back in 2018 when it was revealed through these agencies' own documents that both FBI (Federal Bureau of Investigation) and DOJ (Department of Justice) contractors had performed more than 1,000 illegal searches using the NSA database. Most of these queries targeted Republican primary candidates between November 2015 and May 2016.
It was the DOJ's own reporting to the FISA court that brought this all to light. The exact number of illegal search queries was redacted in that report, but the size of the redacted text shows four digits, meaning it was anywhere from 1,000 to 9,999.
In 2021 during the first year of fake president Joe Biden's regime taking office, that number ballooned to more than 1.1 million illegal searches.
Where is all this electronic data being stored, we wonder? Last we checked, the NSA's main spying facility is located at Camp Williams near Bluffdale, Utah, between Utah Lake and the Great Salt Lake. It was constructed in 2014 at a cost of $1.5 billion.
Are there any additional facilities where this data is being stored – and perhaps more importantly, why is this data being stored? Who controls this all-encompassing electronic data collection, and why is Congress allowing it?
Congress is right now debating whether or not to renew the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act that allows this in the first place, as well as whether or not to allow the DOJ and FBI to intercept private communications at all.
Were these so-called representatives of We the People truly constitutional, they would shut all of this down immediately.
"If the inspector general is now admitting the FISA laws have been so comprehensively corrupted such that 3.4 million searches by more than 10,000 federal employees and government contractors now have access, there is no way that any reasonably intelligent person should support such reauthorization," reports The Conservative Treehouse.
"Even contemplating this request is absurd, beyond absurd."
"The United States government is admitting to the public that a total and comprehensive surveillance state is currently in place, and 10,000 federal government agents have the authorization to monitor everything we do."
