Welcome to the party, pal

Wait, you’re just realizing this NOW?

Fox News Host Tucker Carlson Reveals NSA Conducting Surveillance on His Electronic Communication, Texts and Emails
As disturbing as this statement is, considering the prior admissions of warrantless wiretapping by the FBI using the NSA database, this does not come as a surprise.

Remember, for five consecutive years the U.S. intelligence community has admitted to the FISA court they continually conduct illegal searches of U.S. citizen data, using the NSA database, and they admit to illegally extracting information which is illegally shared with interests outside the intelligence community.

Tonight on Tucker Carlson the Fox News Host outlined how an NSA whistleblower contacted him and told him the NSA was conducting electronic surveillance of his communication. To verify the authenticity of the claim the whistleblower told Carlson what the content of his private text messages and emails contained. While alarming in part, again this should not be surprising.

None but a complete fool could be surprised by it. Tucker isn’t stupid enough not to also realize that it’s hardly just him under the constant, microscopic scrutiny of the Surveillance State. They’re spying on every last one of us—every move we make, every word we speak, and every breath we take, every minute of every day. Something to think about while you’re partaking in the mandatory festivities in celebration of ‘Murrcafreedom!!™ on the Fourth.

Update! Well, this should certainly allay any suspicion out there.

“Tucker Carlson said that the NSA is spying on him. Is the administration aware of any espionage or listening efforts on US citizens by the NSA, and is Tucker Carlson one of them?” a reporter asked (hapless, in-way-over-her-head Bai Ding junta PR flack Jen—M) Psaki.

“Well, the NSA has, I think you are well aware, everyone’s aware, everyone on this plane is aware, I should say, is an entity that focuses on foreign threats and individuals who are attempting to do us harm on foreign soil,” Psaki responded. “So that is their purview, but beyond that I would point you to the intelligence community.”

Hey, makes perfect sense to me. Case: CLOSED! Now back on your heads, everybody.

Updated update! More slithering around straight from No Such Agency, any of which Tucker ain’t having.

Tucker Carlson slammed the National Security Agency (NSA) for their cryptic statement regarding his claim that they were monitoring his electronic communications. “We made a very straightforward claim: NSA has read my private emails without my permission… Tonight’s statement from the NSA does not deny that,” said Carlson.

After the NSA released a cryptic statement regarding his allegations that they were illegally spying on his electronic communications, saying that the agency “may not” spy on American citizens without a court order, Carlson slammed the agency for not denying that they were reading his private emails.

“We made a very straightforward claim: NSA has read my private emails without my permission,” said Carlson. “Tonight’s statement from the NSA does not deny that. Instead, it comes with this non-sequitur: Tucker Carlson has never been an intel target.” Carlson explained that, in a heated discussion with the NSA, they repeatedly denied that they spied on him, but also repeatedly demurred when asked how his whistleblower knew the contents of Carlson’s private emails.

Carlson also bashed the White House for refusing to admit that the NSA was illegally monitoring his electronic communications. “The Biden administration just ignored this story, they did not deny this story. They can’t. They know that it’s true,” Carlson said. “Here’s what to notice – no denial. Of course she’s (Psaki) right that the NSA is chartered to spy on foreigners, not on Americans, that’s illegal, and yet the NSA does routinely spy on Americans.”

“They won’t call it spying, that’s exactly what it is. Millions of Americans, and sometimes it does it for political reasons and everyone knows this. Everyone, including sitting members of the Intel Committee. Some of them are paranoid about their own communications, that’s true. In Washington this is just considered fine, but it’s not fine. It is dangerous and it is wrong,” said Carlson.

It is. But it is also a fact of life in Amerika v2.0, and will assuredly not stop because of something so trifling and irrelevant as the law.

This.

It’s true. Even if I switch browsers and use proxies, the NSA can tell by my word choice and typing patterns if it’s me. Or you.

We are in the panopticon. Everything we do is seen or tracked.

Remember what Janis Joplin said: “Freedom’s just another word for nothing left to lose.”

I find this repugnant in every fiber of my body, but that’s why I never tell The Mrs. a lie.

Hey, maybe the NSA can expose Tucker’s refusal to discuss the stolen election…

His employer (Fox) undoubtedly told him “You may go THIS far, but no farther.” In other words, they will continue to allow him to discuss a variety of topics that are red meat to Conservatives, but bringing up the stolen election is off limits. Recall that the last time he went there, he was off the air for a week or two afterwards. They said he was “taking some time off”. Certainly it was pointed out to him that his $20 million dollar per year salary depends on him not ‘going there’ any more.

Barry

If Carlson was some poor waitress just getting by – then I can sympathize with the necessity of shutting up.

Carlson is worth millions. He can tell Fox to go take a hike and blow it all up on another venue. And I don’t recall that he ever “went there”.

I haven’t listened to him or Faux news since.

Some people spend most of what they earn. They couldn’t give up their fancy restaurant and $100 weekly haircuts and $200 bow ties or anything else that fuels their fancy schmancy lifestyle.

Somebody is paying top dollar for those Starbux Burnt Roast.

Barry

I’d guarantee that Carlson has a few million put away.

HazHap

He certainly ought to. But it is astonishing how many high-earning people are actually financially over-stretched and have minimal reserves. Like congress, it is always possible to spend every dime and then borrow on top of that.

(I have zero knowledge of Carlson’s finances, obviously. He ought to have a tidy sum put away. But so should an awful lot of people.)

Carlson has a wife and three (?) daughters. It doesn’t matter how much he earns, they spend more.

kennycan

My wife exonerates me for spending too much.

SteveF

Means nothing, without further info.

My wife would constantly bitch at me about spending money on tools needed to work on the house or cars or even on stinkin groceries, because money was short and we had to cut expenses. Meanwhile, she spent buckets on keepin’ up with the Joneses — a big LCD TV when they were new, endless clothes, birthday parties for the preschooler at the amusement park, with us picking up the tab for a dozen little kids and their parents and siblings.

I’ve heard similar from other men whose wives spent hundreds per month on hair and makeup and complained about the husband’s monthly $20 haircut.

I’m sure there are some thrifty wives and spendthrift husbands but I don’t know any couples like that.

Barry

My wife is pretty good, and only rolls her eyes when I buy another gun part or more ammo 🙂

But hey, I get credits: Fix the car for 25 and save 300. Remodel the beach kitchen for 3-400 and save at least 5 grand, etc. Ok, that remodel doesn’t count the appliances.

kennycan

She watches every penny like a hawk for herself too.

kennycan

A few million put away gets you at best 60k per year in income. Living in Manhattan and THE LIFESTYLE would hardly get you 4 months tops.

Barry

One can move, and put there money in more lucrative investments, neither of which I need to tell you.

Carlson gets no excuse from me.

kennycan

I’m not excusing him, but with some people the idea of downsizing the lifestyle is unimaginable.

Plus these people have egos. Doing local news in Podunk is worse than prison.

To do that voluntarily sounds like insanity to them.

HazHap

The central banks of the west suppressing interest rates to zero (or negative) has been an immense wealth transfer from savers to borrowers, incentivizing consumption at the expense of savings and re-investment in the economy. I am curious to see if increasing inflation breaks the ZIRP paradigm. My guess is that it will not, and the central banks will destroy their fiat currencies rather than permit rates to rise and bankrupt the vast majority of governments and corporations.

kennycan

No one talks about it.

Because it was so obvious it happened and so obvious nothing will be done about it.

<s>But that Maricopa audit will be out in about two weeks. That’ll blow the whole lid off/s
