Snooping on Americans; business as usual

The so-called “government shut down” and the furloughing of thousands of non-essential federal employees has not prevented the opening of a $2 billion dollar NSA spy center in Utah which will snoop on Americans’ private emails, Google searches and phone calls.

As we highlighted yesterday, the shut down will only affect the tiny amount of services government provides that Americans actually like.
Rest assured, TSA grope downs, VIPR checkpoints, drone attacks, SWAT team raids, tax collection, torturing terrorists at Guantanamo Bay, arming jihadists in Syria and running guns to Mexican drug dealers will all continue unimpeded – as will NSA domestic spying.
Although the NSA itself refuses to confirm it, to all intents and purposes the agency’s mammoth new spy center in Bluffdale, Utah “may be open already,” according to the Denver Post.
“The facility is expected this fall to quietly begin sucking in massive amounts of information for the intelligence community and storing it in the cavernous buildings in Bluffdale, Utah, according to NSA officials — and it could be open now even as the agency faces scrutiny over efforts to collect data on Americans domestically,” writes Thomas Burr.

The next two days will probably be wet ones for many Utahns as the remnants of a tropical depression pushes north into the state.
The National Weather Service in Salt Lake City said widespread locally-heavy rain can be expected, but mainly across southern, central and eastern Utah thanks to Tropical Depression Ivo.
A flash flood watch was in place through late Sunday for all of southern Utah, parts of central Utah and the eastern part of the state including the cities of St. George, Vernal, Duchesne, Moab, Blanding, Richfield and Price.
A flood threat exists for slot canyons, dry washes, small streams, burn scars and urban areas that don’t drain well, the weather service warned.
