Corrected Billboard Applauds NSA Prior to Congressional Vote
by California Department of Corrections
Thursday Jul 25th, 2013 2:18 PM
The California Department of Corrections (CDC) has unveiled a new billboard campaign to defend the domestic spying operations of the National Security Agency (NSA).
On July 23, 2013 the CDC successfully apprehended, rehabilitated and discharged a billboard at Bayshore Boulevard near Sunnydale Avenue in San Francisco. The CDC released the corrected ad one day before a U.S. House of Representatives vote that would have curtailed the agency’s surveillance inside the United States.

The CDC’s ad features a phalanx of massive robots emerging from an ocean storm and marching inland through a barrage of rocket fire. Military helicopters and an aircraft carrier are dwarfed by the robots who wear acronyms of American security agencies: the NSA, the Central Intelligence Agency, the Federal Bureau of Investigation and Immigration and Customs Enforcement. The largest robot lumbers toward the billboard’s headline, TO FIGHT MONSTERS WE CREATED MONSTERS…THE NATIONAL SECURITY STATE.

The liberated ad can be seen on the CDC website at

Following the unauthorized release of information by its former contractor, Edward Snowden, the NSA has faced an unprecedented wave of public scrutiny. On July 24th the U.S. House of Representatives voted on an amendment to a military appropriations bill that would have eliminated funding for the agency’s phone data collection. Narrowly defeated by a margin of 205 to 217, the amendment was attached to a $598 billion defense spending bill for 2014. In addition, news organizations have released daily coverage of Snowden’s leaked documents, and nineteen civilian groups have filed a lawsuit against the NSA, alleging that the massive collection of phone data violates their right of association.

In the midst of this public attention, the CDC initiated its billboard campaign to call for additional support for the NSA. Limited by current levels of funding, the NSA has only been able to collect data on all cell phone calls, all emails and every piece of domestic mail. The agency has also been operating drones for domestic surveillance, searching homes without the knowledge of occupants and acquiring private records from government agencies and financial institutions without obtaining a warrant. With America’s continued support, the NSA will be able to expand and improve these surveillance techniques, enabling the agency to record every conversation that occurs inside the U.S., operate drones over every inch of domestic airspace, search every personal residence and collect every document related to the private lives of U.S. citizens.

The rehabilitated billboard is currently at liberty and seems to have successfully readjusted to public life. However, this advertisement will remain under surveillance by department staff to prevent recidivism and any potential lapse into prior criminal behavior.

Founded in 1994, the CDC is a private correctional facility that protects the public through the secure management, discipline, and rehabilitation of California's advertising. The department was initiated by individuals who felt that public correctional facilities were insufficiently managing the state's most criminal elements and that effective care and treatment would improve under the supervision of a private institution.

by 9/11 was Inside Job
Friday Jul 26th, 2013 8:08 AM
There are no monsters. There is only the ruling capitalist class which needed a new pretext for their profiteering war machine when the Soviet Union disappeared in 1991 as they no longer had the Communist bogeyman as a pretext. So, they engineered the 9/11 Inside Job, the American Reichstag Fire, perpetrated by the US military at the behest of the ruling capitalist class to promote war and fascism so as to maximize their profits, the greatest profits being in munitions and oil. Nazi Germany did exactly the same thing when burning down their own government building, the Reichstag, for exactly the same reason. Maximization of profit is the primary goal of capitalism. Instead of a Jewish scapegoat, the American capitalist class is now promoting a Moslem and Arab scapegoat, the same anti-Semitism. They invented the idea of an outfit called Al Qaeda, a CIA fiction, that, like the Communists, is supposedly under every bed, lurking on the Internet and everywhere else. The promotion of fascism at home is a means of preventing labor organizing, a threat to profits, and this promotion is the reason for the expansion of the fascist state with the NSA spying. The FBI has always been the American political police, and you would know that if you would read labor history and attend the LaborFest events listed on the labor page of this website. American history is filled with government attacks on the workingclass, whether they be chattel slaves or wage slaves; there has never been any democracy in this backward country that to this day has no socialized medicine and still has the death penalty, unlike the rest of the industrialized world for the former, and unlike most of the world for the latter. The CIA is the American overseas terror, torture and murder organization, just like the Nazis perpetrated worldwide terror, torture and murder. The immigration department, now called ICE, has always been a labor regulating department used to prevent labor organizing by allowing employers to deport undocumented immigrants. The United States was built on genocide of Native Americans, enslavement of Africans and the vicious exploitation of the labor of all nationalities, including child labor, which continues to this day. THE UNITED STATES IS NOT AN EXCEPTION; it is another stinking rotten capitalist country. No capitalist country can possibly be a democracy as the profit motive by definition is anti-democratic. Only a labor movement capable of carrying out a general strike to end the profit motive can guarantee democracy as a society where labor rules is a society where the wealth that we, the workingclass, create is distributed as equitably as possible, thus guaranteeing democracy. The name of the game is always money.

The 9/11 Inside Job was clearly such as it happened when we saw there was NO AIR DEFENSE. If you need more, there is also the CONTROLLED DEMOLITION of the Twin Towers and Building 7, which Building 7 was not hit by any plane. Thermate, a military incendiary substance, was found in the dust of the World Trade Center. 9 of the so-called hijackers were alive on 9/12/01; the government admits all of the names are false and they have no evidence that anyone did anything. The planes were on remote control guided by the US military and there were no hijackers on board. The Pentagon was hit by a US military missile or small US military plane as well as construction explosives on the side of the Pentagon that was under construction which housed the bookkeepers who were about to reveal the massive till-tapping taking place. The plane that supposedly crashed in Pennsylvania landed at the Cleveland airport. The hole in the ground in Pennsylvania had no bodies, said the coroner. There is much more. You must always ask the question WHO BENEFITS? Only the US capitalist class had the MEANS, MOTIVE AND OPPORTUNITY to carry out this Inside Job. You must always assume that all of these incidents are INSIDE JOBS until proven otherwise. So far, all of these bombings have proven to be INSIDE JOBS. Here is your homework. AT THE VERY LEAST, WATCH THE DVD, LOOSE CHANGE.
