PRISM: Big Brother Government is Now in the Open

PRISM: Big Brother Government is Now in the Open

For years at here Vigilant Citizen, I’ve been posting articles about the extreme amount of Big-Brotherish surveillance that is happening in the United States and the world. While some have dismissed these stories as “paranoid conspiracy theories”, recent revelations about the NSA’s project PRISM prove that there were no theories involved – just plain facts.

PRISM is a top-secret program that allows the NSA to directly access the servers of numerous online services and to obtain all kinds of information about its users. Since the story came out, some services such as Facebook denied any involvement with this program, stating that the NSA does not have access to their servers. The Guardian has however published leaked top-secret PowerPoint slides used to trained NSA agents that clearly state that 1- The NSA can directly access these servers and 2- Most major providers are directly involved in the program. Here are the slides.

This slide clearly states “Collection directly from the servers of these U.S. Service Providers”.

Here we see that no stone is left unturned by NSA spies: E-mails, video and voice chats, file transfers and social networking are all targeted. Yes, even Skype calls can be spied on by agents.

Here we see the exact time where each provider joined PRISM. The 1st one to join? Microsoft. In the light of my recent article on Microsoft’s gaming console Xbox One, this is not surprising. Now that it has been confirmed that the Xbox One will require an internet connection EVERY 24 hours, it is quite possible that the data collected by the console (audio and video) will be transferred right to NSA servers.

One might ask: Where does this enormous amount of data get processed? In 2012, I posted an article entitled The NSA Is Building the Country’s Biggest Spy Center which stated:

“When construction is completed in 2013, the heavily fortified $2 billion facility will encompass 1 million square feet, including four 25,000-square-foot areas to house endless rows of high-powered servers. The center will be fed data collected by the agency’s eavesdropping satellites, overseas listening posts, and secret monitoring rooms in telecom facilities throughout the US. The incredible processing power of this facility will be used to scan e-mails, phone calls, text messages, tweets or any other kind of communication. As a former NSA officer states, while holding his thumb and forefinger close together “We are that far from a turnkey totalitarian state.”

I guess that the “turnkey totalitarian state” is now fully effective.

The whistleblower that leaked this story is named Ed Snowden and the US Government is looking to severely prosecute him. Here’s a YouTube video of him describing how what’s happening now is WORSE than the novel 1984.

Note this part.

“Because even if you’re not doing anything wrong, you’re being watched and recorded. And the storage capability of these systems increases every year consistently by orders of magnitude to where it’s getting to the point where you don’t have to have done anything wrong, you simply have to eventually fall under suspicion from somebody, even by a wrong call. And then they can use the system to go back in time and scrutinize every decision you’ve ever made. Every friend you’ve ever discussed something with. And attack you on that basis, to derive suspicion from an innocent life, and paint anyone in the context of a wrongdoer.”

So to those who say “If you have nothing to hide, you shouldn’t worry”. You’re wrong. Dead wrong. And, to be honest, it is this kind of attitude that will destroy whatever is left of liberty and privacy in the U.S. and the world. Furthermore, if you are outside of the United States – especially in countries such as Canada, UK or Australia – do not think that you’re safe. The elite knows no national boundaries and what has be revealed in the United States is most likely already happening in many other countries.

It is seriously time to wake up and to let people know that privacy, freedom and democracy are in serious jeopardy here. There is no speculation, no “tin foil hats” and no conspiracy theory. This is what’s happening right now and, if you value your freedom, you better do something about it and get your voice heard.

sorry to disrupt, but there is NOTHING we can do about it, if we rebel then it's what they'd want, more police state which they've been pushing through music videos, fashion, ALL of that. the world is only going to get worse seeing as Satan knows he hasn't got much time, i'm not scared about what's going on NOW, i'm scared about the events that will happen AFTER Jesus returns, people that may be left behind to endure even MORE of this. if you don't believe in Christianity, ask yourself, why they TARGET this religion, because it's the TRUTH. they mock it 24/7, whether its Nicki Minaj's 'exorcism' at the Grammys, teenagers my age thinking its cool to wear inverted crosses, listen to OFWGKTA and curse Christianity and Jesus, they're building up a mind of rebellion for teenagers, and hear it from ME, a teenager myself, do you know how many times i've stepped on that path out of curiosity? too many times, i'm even praying that Jesus comes back when i'm in my good state, when i'm not experimenting with this 'other side', they make it seem so cool and right to be against Jesus because thats what they… Read more »


You're adorable. Stop praying for heaven, and realize you ARE living in the Garden of Eden.


This is the garden of Eden? I thought humans were kicked out lol… If this is the garden of Eden then I am praying for Heaven too!

Oh and Kristina leave people's faith alone. She has the right to pray for Heaven and believe. Just because you can't see something with your eyes right now that does not mean it isn't real. If there's no proof for it, there's no proof against it.


Its not to help you, I can testify to that….probably blackmail….public polling, who likes the new word order (dummmie) and stuff like that, it doesn't come from a place of love….in my own experience they use it to creep me out….and it ended up messing up my program as I refuse to associate with folks who can repeat my phone conversations….but don't seem to be doing a lot to help me, FTS :))

have a happy!

Stephen King

Is it me or PRISM kinda sounds like PRISON… Well played, guys, well played…


What about People from PAKISTAN? will they be affected if the even mention a word like ZION or ILLUMINATI or SATAN or anything like that or use them with a HASH?


Katy Perry's newest album? Prism.


Interesting analysis, surprisingly from mainstream media


Don't be afraid of whats happening and have faith to god, Because God is powerful above all. He is THE KING OF KINGS AND LORD OF LORDS. Romans 8:31 – What shall we then say to these things? If God [be] for us, who [can be] against us?


Okay media, next up, NSA Edward Snowden, exploit now! Eat it up America because actually while you're concerned shitless about your violation of freedom and privacy which in fact has already been destroyed years ago while you were eating your TV dinners watching Dick Clarkes ball drop, we'll be starting WWIII if that's okAy. Oh it's not? Well we don't really value your opinion, anyways I the meantime keep talking about this topic like its ground shaking information. Syria here we f-----g come! Deploy the drones.




The saddest part of this are the people who have such a high level of faith in the government and Constitution that they believe there will be a way to fight it. If you are still asleep I feel sorry for you. If you are semi-awake, WAKE UP completely!


Hahahaha, the sheeple said conspiracy theorists are fear mongering lonely people. Now I wonder how they are taking this. Its about time we stop depending so much on electronic communications. We simply have to go back to the days of traditional folders, papers and pens, post office and "joint" families if we want this spying to fail. They don't give us 100 percent privacy, but at least will make things difficult for them.


"you better do something about it and get your voice heard" Um… I've been watching sites likes this for a while. Talk talk talk. Exactly when is anyone going to actually do something… Talking about it and revealing it won't mean anything when this supposed "plan" is unfolded by the government. Personally, I don't believe any of this. If the government is as crooked as you say, and I believe they are more than capable of being, wouldn't all of this more than likely be a distraction? Planned. I mean, doesn't this all seem way too much like a movie? I mean for crying out loud, a book was written about this and it's happening now. It just all seems like a huge plan for something much bigger and these conspiracy things that somehow "leaked" are obviously "leaked" purposely to distract from what's really going on. You guys are blogging about it on an easily accessible site for goodness sakes! But either way, blogging about it on a computer isn't stopping anything so let's be real. Fight back or shut up. We get it. You believe there's a conspiracy. Exactly what is the next step? Read this with an open… Read more »


I have the same opinion. Snowden is actually fake. I would have believed him if he allowed his identify to be hidden and media showed less interest in this story. The things he said is nothing new. We all know it already. Its been going on for a long time and the presentation has "unsuspecting" names. Blah, just see their titles:
windows: means someone can watch all our activities. its not in singular form, but plural. that says a lot.
google: googlee eyes, again someone seeing us.
iphone: needs no explanation
facebook: face? identification?
aol: find out what Americans are doing online

I agree with you that we need to take action. Protesting will get us in trouble though. In fact, it will get us "beheaded". Changing our lifestyle is the only action that is best right now.


Freaky, went from weird conspiracy website that's fun to kill time on to news site with this story about Edward Snowden. Btw isn't that like the fakest freaking name ever? Edward SNOWden…yeah right.


The terrorist we should all be truly fighting: The False-Flag-Government of the United States.


I think it is utterly ironic and almost funny that a defense from them would be "If you have nothing to hide, you shouldn’t worry." Well, if THEY have nothing to hid then why are all these programs being built in secret? Why are they hiding what they are doing, if it is only in "the public's best interest"? If it is, then there shoudl be nothing that should be secret… Because its for our interest anyways. NOT. This defense from them – it is OUR defense too people! IF THE GOVERNMENT HAS NOTHING TO HIDE, WHY IS IT CONDUCTING EVERYTHING IN SUCH SECRECY? Aks questions. Not for answers, but if you keep questioning, others will too. They are afraid of us, people. They were afraid of the people revolting in the 30's and 40's and 50's with the rise of feminism, demand for equality, the black panthers, the weathermen, and all other revolutionaries… They were scared. So their response? Create a fake hippie movement, pacify the public with drugs, then make those drugs illegal in order to incarcerate/destroy those same people. Drugs and alcohol are one of the biggest conspiracies, IMO. As long as all the people who are… Read more »


I just want them to use it to catch REAL criminals instead of manipulating politics, media, and marketing!


Lol keep dreaming


I believe that the more truth that comes out the harder things will become for us. when they can no longer be wolves in sheeps clothing thats when all hell is gonna brake loose.


The answer seems to be to put tin foil on everything, credit cards, licenses, cellphones computers, tvs, the passenger side of your after 2004 vehilce, computer games, and oh yea say no to smart meters.


just watch. the number of amish people will multply thousand of times over in the next few years.


The land of the free*
and the home of the brave

*void where prohibited


HAHAHA! Not gonna lie, a world with no influence from government or technology is starting to seem quite appealing… 😉


sign me up would love to turn amish.


max keiser, an economy analyst, pointed to the possible motive of corporate espionage as related to a chart of activities of data collecting systems. of course there are more motives
