This article is a must read and a must share with everyone you know. It is a secret scheme of the Government and Obama administration to take over our freedom and privacy.
When some of our staff as journalists learned about this, we have been following the developments. Senators Dianne Feinstein and Richard Burr are planning a Senate vote on CISA very soon. They say there will probably be hardly any debate before it passes. Obama is calling for it’s passage. It is a hidden and bill disguised.
For several years the government has been trying to pass a bill and law that would force every American company to share personal data with the governments more loosely. Last year the billed known as CISPA failed.
This means for example, you had some kind of private concern you shared with your employer, this means it is no longer confidential. What if you are having a private conversation with someone, you don’t want a stranger to listen in on it. What if your company is doing something wrong, and you want to be a whistleblower, now even your employer will know what you are up to, your life could be at risk. There are many things tragic that can happen, but the most serious is invasion of privacy and freedom.
and worse, think about this, you are getting ready to fight the government, state, local or federal and they are listening in on all of your plans for legal issues. They will know how to counter defend before you even assert your claim. This is illegal.
We wanted to reach out to the VOC subscribers and members to read and share this information. Why because we are a group of people, citizens of the United States and we want to put a stop to this.
Below is a recent report an leak:
If the employees, and Facebook Users, Android Users, Google Users don’t stand up and tell these companies, “enough is enough, if you continue back this CISA deal, we will leave you .”
If you don’t take action as a citizen soon then
- the government CIA, FBI, NSA will be free at their leisure log every keystroke, every voice conversation, every web visit, every email, every search, open your webcam on your pc, laptop, smart tablet, phone and smart device
- not only that they will control every place you are, every place you are shopping, log every camera, when you swipe that card, or pay cash because your smart phone is equipped with facebook, android, google, apple, microsoft is with you and tracking you.
- you will be monitored where you work because business will be required to open the back door to these agencies.
- auto makers will allow the gps to track your every move, and apartment complexes also will have to open the back door.
- and you will be identified no longer a free citizen but a mere victim of the biggest communist movement since Hitler
The CISA which is the biggest breach of personal privacy in the history of the world besides that which Edward Snowden himself revealed to the press
you will be allowing what Edward Snowden tried to protect you from, despite what the intercept just reported about Snowden is saying about these big tech companies.
Well you say I am doing nothing wrong, it is ok. read this “ Saying That You’re Not Concerned Because The NSA Isn’t Interested In You Is Obnoxious And Dangerous” it the same as saying I am not abusing children so why should I care about those who are abusing children.
Recently a court ruled that the massive data collection is illegal
- The NSA wants it badly, because it will give them more access to your data, and give companies immunity for legally shaky programs like PRISM: (read more)
- It lets the government spy on you without a warrant. (read more)
- It makes it so you can’t even find out about it after the fact. (read more)
- It makes it so companies can’t be sued when they do illegal things with your data. (read more)
- It allows corporations to cyber-attack each other and individuals outside of the law. (read more)
So here it is, an Open Letter you can modify and send to the companies you use including Apple and Microsoft too!
STOP CISA Cybersecurity Bill
BEGIN —OPEN LETTER—
Dear _________ and every big company including Google, Microsoft, Apple, Facebook, and every small company I do business with, and every Politician I elected:
I hereby object to CISA as I also objected to CISPA if you do not get behind me and put a stop to this bill that Obama wants to sign here is what will happen to you
I will change my phone provider to a prepaid in which i will pay cash for (after I destroy my current phone, and walk to the nearest prepaid center), and use something like Sailfish, ubuntu, or Firefox OS
I will change my computer’s operating system to something like Linux Mint whether I am an apple or Microsoft user.
I will change my email provider to https://protonmail.ch/, and use thunderbird to send encrypted emails to everyone.
I will leave my social network in quest for one who does not allow governments to have a back door, something like the upcoming Tabs Project
I will change my online documents and storage provider to something like the upcoming Tabs Project or copy.com for my storage or free online storage with encryption.
I will pull my GPS out of my automobile, or opt for a scooter or bicycle or older auto without GPS tracking.
If the company I work for will not support it’s employees that are against these privacy rights I will seek employment elsewhere or become self employed
To my bank, I will leave and use a secure bank or online bank to do my business, or work with cash. I will use prepaid credit cards to make purchases
If you think I am not serious then don’t object to CISA or CISPA or any future attempt, because when I will leave, and I will, for companies like Microsoft, Apple, Google, Yahoo, Facebook this will mean that all other things I use that you provide me with will be gone.
Now to be serious it might take me a few weeks or months to complete my transitions, but hear me now, I am already making plans to start securing some of my life now as it is.
And Microsoft better hear me, because if you lock me out when I upgrade or get a pc with windows 10 with your secure boot EFI from not installing linux, think again, there are linux based pcs and laptops out there.
Apple there are free programs like music bee to play my music and aimersoft to convert any of my videos and audio. So leaving you is not so difficult.
I hope I will get a reply that I am a valued customer / or company that uses your products and that you will begin to fight privacy including CISA from ever being accomplished. If I don’t then I will start my transition in the next few weeks.
Oh and by the way, if you think I cannot get out of any contracts, think again, because invasion of privacy gives me every right to cancel my contract.
…..your name your signature…..
END —OPEN LETTER—

Now for those of you that want to start transitioning to more secure things, you can start making some switches now.
First of all get an external hard drive that you can encrypt, you also going to need access to some techy people but some things are pretty easy.
The biggest problem you will encounter is people who are not so privacy conscience. Communicating with them, may be a challenge. But I am sure if you sent them an encrypted email, they would want to ask you how to read it.
1) change your web searching to duckduckgo, and your browser to something secure like Pale Moon, and use privacy anonymous browsing.
2) if you are going to bookmark things, like many people like to do you want something like :
3) think about where you store stuff online, first you are going to need to download everything from your current online provider, whether that is iCloud, Google Driver, Onedrive (microsoft) etc. put all this in one secure folder that is encrypted.
you are going to need something that can encrypt a drive or folder :
and something like swissdisk or justcloud to keep your docs secured, like docs that you need access wherever you are .
4) think about storing stuff, stuff like music, photos videos don’t really need encryption – you can use the free online storage places like copy.com which is recommended by snowden , to store those kinds of files
but another idea is a 30 – 60 Gb USB drive with encryption – now you have your stuff with you all time
and if you are a whistleblower think about digital camera SD cards, compact and easy to hide and you can encrypt and secure easily.
5) but wait I use twitter, facebook, and google plus to market my company or project —
ok then you will need an account with google, but you can always use your private browser to login
to these services and , make sure you have a dedicated secure browser just for facebook that you use incognito mode to log in to faebook (this creates a sandbox so facebook can’t get outside and see what you are doing, and believe me they do. if you were to open your email in the same browser while logged into facebook you will now have all your contacts imported and keywords / tags of things your email contains. Facebook is only the first contender in this, Microsoft is the first. If you have windows 8 or windows 10 you log in any place not incognito or private, they will now have all your facebook contacts and birthdays email contacts and birthdays and much more you didn’t know you gave them access to.
We recommend using a separate secure private browser ( ) for each social network. The good news is the tabs project will be secure and you will still be able to communicate to any other social network.
Now in just 5 steps you have secured your storage, email, searching, bookmarks, and needed social networking in the first transition
Next transition, you can sign up for secure email service or you could use google , via the thunderbird email client, using …. to encrypt every email.
ok by now life is just a change a little, you have some place like copy to store stuff that you don’t need encrypted.
you are private browsing even when online banking
you are using a encrypted email system if not sign up for one , like previously mentioned or https://www.ghostmail.com/
so maybe you want to move your android to more secure — a couple of ways, delete android or dual boot to ubuntu touch, or a linux based os, just google it , it is fairly easy
or you can install all the apps you want then erase your google account from the tablet, sure you may not get updates but you can pretty much use the tablet
or third you can create a new email that you want for google play store and keep your info factitious
you can cover your webcam on your pc but if you switch to linux this probably won’t be needed.
1) switching to linux – we recommend Linux Mint Cinnamon version it is the closest thing to windows and secure
you will need to uninstall the default office suite and use kingston office which is almost a exact clone of microsoft office for free
if you use adobe products this will be your downfall somewhat you can install oracle virtual box
and install windows 7 then use the virtualbox to use your adobe product, you will have to share
your external drives to share docs you edit back and forth, or just do all your creative inside virtual box and by the way running windows 7 inside virtual box, is so much faster..
you will have to get use to other programs like graphic design programs but in a few months you will ask yourself why did you ever use Apple OSX or Windows – no more bugs, no malware, and everything is so fast
you could dual boot , like I do , and use linux 90 percent of the time — and gradually work yourself away from windows –
Encrypting files in linux – there are many programs that will do this, and folders as well, which is the best method —
but you also want a way to get to those files if your laptop or pc is not available
