Feinstein, NSA Have Built A Dystopian Empire

August 5, 2013 by  

Is this a hint that the North American Union is real and on the horizon? Or is it simply proof that Senator Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) is far too old and senile to be trusted to legislate, especially as the chairwoman of the Senate Intelligence Committee?

Last week, during a Senate briefing on the National Security Agency, Feinstein grouped the United States, Canada and Mexico together, as “the homeland,” defending the NSA’s mass spying.

Feinstein also used as a prop a world map identifying the entirety of North America as the “homeland.” The map was part of a newly declassified NSA diagram showing terror activity that the agency alleges it disrupted throughout the world.


Europe, Africa and Asia were correctly identified by their continent names on the map, but North America was simply labeled “homeland.” And Feinstein took no care to use the correct continent identifier for North America.

“Now, the NSA has produced and declassified a chart, which I’d like to make available to all members. It has the 54 total (terror) events,” Feinstein said. “And it shows the events disrupted… 13 in the Homeland, 25 in Europe, five in Africa and 11 in Asia.”

Webster defines “homeland,” first used in 1670, as follows:

1: native land : fatherland

2: a state or area set aside to be a state for a people of a particular national, cultural, or racial origin

Over at The Atlantic, Philip Bump, surmised that the use of “homeland” was simply an NSA ploy to make it appear as though the agency’s spying is more justified than it actually is:

Normally, this would be written off as a design goof, as one of the NSA’s (newly adept) graphics guys using a little more light blue than he ought.

This being the NSA, we’re not inclined to offer that benefit of the doubt. Is this a way of blending in Canadian and Mexican terror activity disruptions (which, we’ll remind you, is different from actual plots interrupted) to give a larger sense of the NSA’s success at halting terrorism within our borders?

A closer look at the shading on the NSA map shows that Feinstein’s and the spy agency’s “homeland” also possibly includes Honduras, Costa Rica, Nicaragua, Belize, Guatemala, maybe Panama, along with Cuba and the entire West Indies. And has anyone informed the people of Greenland that they are now subjects of The National Security Empire of the North American Union?
