White House Making Subtle Policy Changes to Spy on Americans

The Executive Office of the President has posted its intent to spy on American citizens who use the internet to contact government sites by exchanging "cookies" with users' computers. These "cookies" can track the users' site visits, his preferences, and his demographics. Under the guise of "enhancing citizen participation in government through basic policy changes," the White House has asked for comments on the use of cookies. On July 27th, the White House's Office of Management and Budget published the proposed changes in the Federal Register. Citizens are allowed to comment until August 10th by emailing

Since 2000, the use of cookies by Federal agencies is prohibited for privacy concerns unless there was a "compelling need." The current Administration is proposing several tiers of spying on Americans using cookies, the third tier, called "persistent identifiers" is described as "Multi-session technologies for use as persistent identifiers, which track users over multiple visits with the intent of remembering data, settings, or preferences unique to that visitor for purposes beyond what is needed for web analytics." Indeed, the government has already initiated this policy at where if you click "I agree" to the terms of trading in your clunker, the government owns all the information on your computer.

It was less than two weeks ago that the White House urged Americans to turn in other Americans to if they were suspected of passing misinformation about the healthcare socialization plan through casual conversations.

The White House has moved the national census directly under its control and has already sent thousands of Census "Listeners" door to door recording your home's information on hand-held GPS computers. The Department of Homeland Security in an April 7 report listed as possible terrorists those who believe in end time prophecies, and are against abortion, homosexuality, and illegal immigration.

The Fourth Amendment to the Constitution is considered the right of privacy. It reads in part:
"The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated..."
Often the government has gotten around this right by saying it owns the domain - such as speed cameras on public highways, and now your private information over the internet. Jesus said of the end times in Matthew 24:10,
"And then shall many be offended, and shall betray one another and shall hate one another."
Your own government is betraying you, is at war with you, and if you believe in end time prophecies, it lists you as a possible terrorist.
