A new report by The Washington Post reveals that the National Security Agency (NSA) uses Google cookies to pinpoint people for “remote exploitation” and surveillance, citing documents leaked by Edward Snowden.
This comes after it was revealed on Monday that the NSA and GCHQ spy on online games. Last month, it was reported that a secret deal allows the NSA to spy on UK citizens who are not suspected of any wrongdoing.
The latest revelations came in the form of an internal NSA presentation, which shows that “when companies follow consumers on the Internet to better serve them advertising, the technique opens the door for similar tracking by the government,” according to The Washington Post.
The Post notes that this information could very well shift the debate over consumer privacy and Internet cookies, which continues to rage as technology becomes increasingly advanced.
The NSA and GCHQ are both reportedly using cookies that enable websites to identify a person’s browser and allow the
When QE1 ended there was a substantial stock market correction, and when QE2 ended there was a substantial stock market correction. And if you will remember, the financial markets threw a massive hissy fit a few months ago when Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke suggested that the Fed may soon start tapering QE3. Clearly Wall Street does not like it when their supply of monetary heroin is interrupted. The Federal Reserve has tricked the American people into supporting quantitative easing by insisting that it is about “stimulating the economy”, but that has turned out to be a massive hoax. In fact, I just wrote an article that contained 37 statistics that prove that things just keep getting even worse for ordinary Americans. But quantitative easing has been exceptionally good for Wall Street. During QE1, the S&P 500 rose by about 300 points. During QE2, the S&P 500 rose by about 200 points. And during QE3, the S&P 500 has risen by about 400 points. The S&P 500 is now in unprecedented territory, and stock prices have become completely and totally divorced from reality.

The Electronic Privacy Information Center (EPIC) has filed a lawsuit against the Department of Justice in an attempt to get access to reports on the National Security Agency (NSA) program that involved the collection of Internet records in bulk.
This is just the latest in a string of cases attempting to challenge NSA surveillance programs in court. Most recently, the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) argued that one aspect of NSA surveillance violates the Constitution and even exceeds the Patriot Act.
In November, the Supreme Court refused to hear another case brought by EPIC that challenged the legality of dragnet telephone surveillance conducted by the NSA.
In this latest lawsuit, EPIC is attempting to obtain semiannual reports under the Freedom of Information Act, which reportedly “contain statistics on the now-discontinued surveillance program,” according to The Hill.
Previously, the director of national intelligence stated that the program was discontinued in 2011 because it “was no longer meeting the operational expectations that NSA had for it.”
The program reportedly collected what is known as
