U.S. Government Seeks To Mine Social Media Sites To Prevent Terrorist Attacks, Uprisings

U.S. Government Seeks To Mine Social Media Sites To Prevent Terrorist Attacks, Uprisings

The U.S. government is looking for software that can mine social media sites to predict everything from future terrorist attacks to foreign uprisings, according to requests posted online by intelligence agencies and Federal law enforcement.

The Associated Press reported that hundreds of intelligence analysts already go through overseas Twitter and Facebook posts to track events that occur abroad. This is not enough, however, as the FBI recently outlined its desire for a digital scan of the entire universe of social media.

“Social media has emerged to be the first instance of communication about a crisis, trumping traditional first responders that included police, firefighters, EMT, and journalists,” the FBI wrote in its request. “Social media is rivaling 911 services in crisis response and reporting.”

The AP reported that the proposals have already raised privacy concerns among advocates who feel that this type of monitoring would have a chilling effect on users.

Information Week reported that the FBI wanted the application that would help it mine for social media to be in the form of a “secure, lightweight web application portal, using mashup technology.”

      You mean Naked Savage SOCIALISM! Control by ole barry the SOCIALIST and his SOCIALIST CRONIES!!

      • NC

        Jim, that’s what it is Naked Savage Socialism! The kind that added 230,000 jobs last month (Do you remember when we were losing 700,000 jobs a month before the Socialist arrived? You don’tremember that? Really?)
        Dow up to over 12,500! ( Do you remember when it was falling toward the 6547 bottom just before the Socialist arrived? You don’t remember that? Where were you?)
        Two very unpopular wars with millions of American citizens coming to a close ending the death and costs.(Do you remember the reasons given for those wars? NO? Can’t recall? Really?) All since the Socialist arrived!!

        • Jim

          WOW more BS than the Oblumber spin machine. Maybe you could get a job there!

        • John Ceglarski

          I would like to assure you that the reports of my death have been greatly exaggerated. Let me explain.
          I have been unemployed for more than 30 weeks. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics this means I have dropped out of the workforce and am no longer looking for work (even though I have an interview tomorrow). No one called and asked if I was looking for work they just did a little thing called a “seasonal adjustment”. This made me and 1.2 million other Americans disappear. And if I have disappeared then I must be dead , right? Over 1.2 million Americans, POOF. Gone. The really good news is this (if your name happens to be Obama). No U.S. president has ever won re election with the unemployment rate over 8 percent , BUT by using a combination of lies and pretzel logic like this you can tell all us stupid American voters that unemployment is ( or will be) below 8 percent come election time even though it is now around 11.4 percent and growing.
          I’m just one of the common gun loving , religion clinging FOLKS as Barry refers to us so if your as dumb as I am you can read the article below to get an even better understanding of this. It even has a pretty multi colored chart for those of you who prefer picture books. =)

    Thats all we need more big brother to hell.

  • Patriot1776

    The obama administration has become one of the largest terrorist threat to America attacking our religious freedom, our right to bear arms, condoning civil unrest by supporting OWS, supporting illegal aliens while punishing the agents responsible for monitoring our borders, welcoming the muslim brotherhood and ignoring Israel. Through obamacare the administration has thrown out our Constitution and installed obama as ruler supreme with self-given authority to demand that private enterprises give products away for free, starting with insurance companies and who knows where it will end. The EPA, Health and Human Services, Department of Education and DOJ establish unconstitutional regulations restricting industry, shutting down coal fired power plants and preventing jobs from being created while generating enormous cash benefits for congressional inside traders (traitors?) and their crony’s. All of this and more while creating class warfare by demonizing the successful rich and enslaving the poor while eliminating the middle class and at the same time professing to want to try to help. Attacks on our freedom of speach on the internet, attacks from the gay and lesbian community on anyone that stands up for the judeao christian morality that founded this once great nation and leading the charge that lead to the downgrading of our national credit. And they want to monitor us?

    • Sirian

      Well said Patriot1776, well said. Only thing is though, they have way to many “useful idiots” playing on their team. If only we can “clean house” (both houses actually) this coming November.

    • http://google gary gerke

      Obama and his current band of political thugs know full well that the American people will only put up with so much before they take matters into their own hands.

      With drones overhead, monitoring emails, internet social sites and listening in on cell phone calls big brother is trying to fend off the eventual revolution before it can gain momentum.

      I believe the government will disappear the government opposition into the FEMA camps that are set up with more are being set up all the time. They are horrified at the 100M guns the American people own, 100M guns makes the Taliban look like a bunch of pansies.

      • FactNotRhetoric

        The RON PAUL REVOLUTION is hopefully the only revolution we’ll ever need to see in the US. If we can get our constitution back, we won’t need to resort to bloodshed.

        I do not want to see Americans fighting Americans. This is what the Saudi-Hitlers of the world want. That is what “Saudi Puppet Obama” wants.

        I think the New Hampshire student chant for Ron Paul said it all.

        RON PAUL REVOLUTION
        GIVE US BACK OUR CONSTITUTION

        Let’s get like minded citizens to run for every government office this fall. It does not matter if were republicans or democrats, just so long as we are PRO-CONSTITUTION and LIMITED GOVERNMENT. Anybody is smarter and better equipped than the morons we now have in office.

        Now that’s the kind of revolution I could support with a clear conscience.

      • Chris

        The gov’t will try to inter govt opposition in these camps.However,they don’t have enough room for ALL of those who would oppose.Expect the civillian assistance plan(CAP) that was signed in 08′ by Ovomit himself to come into action where Canadian military comes down to enforce domestic law. Ovomit will never let our troops come home because they will defend us and refuse orders.So they will be shipped to Iran and ther places leaving UN troops and Canadians to kill us and lock us away.
        They have had this planned for a long time and planned to keep our troops preoccupied and away from the states so the takeover can happen.They know that the NWO cannot enter with our troops here to defend the constitution and a functional monetary system.So,this is what they’ll do.
        We’re on our own and those millions of guns we have here in the states had better be hidden away somewhere safe until the time they are needed.With martial law,they will attempt to do like they did to Katrina victims,disarm them city by city.
        Ovomit will attempt to kill the 2nd amendment if he wins the 12′ election and then declare all out war on gun owners.
        Keep your powder dry people.

    • FactNotRhetoric

      Well said Patriot1776. But it’s very unsettling to me to see the scary truth. Can you list a series of solutions at the same time? I’d sleep a little better if you empowered me just a little. :-)

      • Patriot1776

        We have to get government down to size and under control. We have to hold our representatives accountable from the federal, state and local levels. We need to stay involved in government and not turn it over for someone else to watch over. We need to get government out of education, out of business regulation, out of our pockets. The responsibility for educating our children needs to be on a local level so that we can know the quality of the education and the materials that they are taught.

        Corporations need to be actively involved in their communities giving some guidance to schools as far as what skills and knowledge they need from potential employees so that schools can develop programs to meet the needs of the community, not some bureaucracy. We need citizens to be active participants in the government.

    • john

      the obama company has already published its lists of potential terrorists.

  • Viet Nam Vet 67-68

    We need as a Nation to get ready for a total take over by this Government and be armed and ready when it does because if we are not as one we will be in a full blown Communist one world Government where we have zero rights. They just conficated this mans guns by using he is insane that could be anyone of us. I am tired of our Constitution being pissed on by a bunch of illerate Politicians who think they nare better than us. We all have been screwed by thid Govewrnment and it must stop. If we have Martial Law imposed before election or before the next President is installed then we must march on Washington and take our Country back. I pray I am wrong but what I have witnessed for the last 40 years is the decaying of our Constitution but in the last three years I have seen the total breakdown of our way of life and our Constitution. Obamination is an Illegal Half Breed (NOT BLACK) for you dumb asses out there, Radical Muslim Communist America/Constitution hater and we have a complicite Congress keeping him in power.

    • rtringgo

      I agree. As was heard in Nam, “Dinky Dow. Didi mao!” (phonetic spelling, sorry.)

  • JOHNTHEBAPTIST11

    The doors will be opened to those who knock, but they must first see and hear the words that immerge when that door is opened but america sits and shouts blaspheme and insults on the world as they have done even the Father in heaven for surly you remember the Bible lesson that obama tried to teach in the pulpit of a church about what God said in Leviticus, and Deuteronomy, and what his take on the sermon on the mount was that not even the Defense Dept could sustain that type rhetoric! well obama be carefull for God is watching and you have failed the test of devotion and salvation to the Lord Jesus Christ?

  • JOHNTHEBAPTIST11

    GET YOUR OWN HOUSE IN ORDER BEFORE YOU SEEK TO CLEAN OTHERS?

      David you hit the nail on the head, this means our freedom. WE IHE PEOPLE must get these progressive dictators out in November before we loose what little we still have.

  • Maryland Freestater

    I am addicted to YouTube, especially the conspiracy oriented clips (Anonymous anybody?).

    Yesterday, I saw a clip which outlined the command structure of Facebook. The author of the video I saw stated that Facebook’s seniormost leadership were CIA grads, and that FB was/is succeeding beyond the CIA’s wildest dreams as an info-obtaining device. FB feels sufficiently warm, fuzzy and fun to snare many (myself included) into voluntarily giving info about one’s self.

    If this is indeed true then this is absolutely frightening! It’s also ingenious how this came about: I bet whoever designed FB must have had an interesting psychoanalytic background…

    I’d heard this before and decided to scale down my FB info to platitudes, soft philosophies, and menus. I no longer engage in arguing with liberals (why argue with idiots anyway). This is a drag because I’ve been able to hook up with fellow vets I haven’t seen in decades and renew some old relationships. And I LUV baiting entitlementalists and their ilk – logic is like salt on a slug to liberals and permissivists!

    I rue the day when YouTube gets whacked like this, if it already isn’t.

    My desires are very simple – to live in freedom in all its aspects, to establish a free world for my descendants, and for the spread of Libertarianism worldwide. I don’t need a nanny-state to command me what to do – I already have a spouse and a mother to do that!- and I just want people who need to mind their own eff’ing business to keep their noses out of mine!

    In fact, I’d like to see what people are doing to fight back against the ‘system’ – I prefer to do so legally (I am NOT popular with my Senators and representative I can guarantee you!) but what can we do to remove unjust laws? To stop overregulation by Obama’s illegal czars? To stop social engineering and other mischief by liberals and Fifth-columnists?

    The Bible says revelation does NOT need to come to pass if only good people stand up to the evil: I believe we ARE entering into the Revelationary period but it is still early enough to stop it. If Obama is re-elected, then our fate IS sealed; if not, especially a Paul victory, then we get a second chance.

    Some of the posters here have been going off about ‘Jesus Saves’ but that’s the wrong approach. We have to save ourselves (of course begging GOD to intervene for us doesn’t hurt a bit). People of faith need to resist, not mouth platitudes – because if they don’t resist, even a little, then they’re just as guilty of aiding and abetting the Enemy.

    Just sayin’…

    • NC

      Maryland, have you begged God to intervene? Has he intervened? Got any idea what he’s wating on with things as bad as you see them in the greatest country in the world??? Ever think your God might want us to fail? If he is all powerful can we stop the failure? Could it be he wants the Muslims to prevail? After all,they are his people too! Isn’t that what the Bible says?

    • ChristyK

      Be careful about YouTube. Google has linked tracking individuals across YouTube, gmail and google search (probably others). They track everything you do, say, and search for (supposedly to give you a better experience). Unfortunately, Google is too closely linked with the government. I am considering getting rid of my Android phone because it is also linked to Google. Maybe I can find one of my old analog Motorola cell phones in a drawer somewhere.

      • http://google gary gerke

        Today we have a semblance of our original constitution, tomorrow maybe not…..untill then….F…EM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • naxaron

    Why get upset with all this palaver. Vote da bums out and be done with it.

    • FactNotRhetoric

      The problem with “Puppet Obama’s Martial Law Dictatorship” is that Obama will ask the UN to step in, and count the votes, to be fair. “Puppet Holder” has already requested the UN involvement in the US elections.

      The UN is controlled by the Saudi Dictators of the world. The UN always hires the Saudi Muslim Brotherhood to come in and count the votes in the countries they want to overthrow.

      Thus the Saudi Muslim Brotherhood will tell Americans who won the United States Presidential Elections. The Saudi Muslim Brotherhood did this in Egypt, Tunisia, and half a dozen other countries they overthrew. The Saudi Muslim Brotherhood even has their own voting machines manufactured in Madrid Spain called Scytl/SOE. Madrid Spain will be more than happy to tell Americans who won our presidential elections.

    • ChristyK

      I’m not fully convinced that we could vote the bums out even if 99% of us agreed that we should. Iowa lost the votes in multiple precincts and they will never be counted. New Hampshire had over a thousand dead people vote and had voting software written by 2 felons. Nevada took days to “count” the vote and the results don’t match what people experienced in the caucuses. Maine delayed voting in multiple precincts and created additional voting locations (not well publicized) to get the “results” that they wanted. Republicans and Democrats, both seem to be willing to do anything to stay in power and increase their power. As an optomist, I will work hard to elect the only presidential candidate that might be able to fix things, but I am not convinced that the “little people” will be allowed to effect the outcome of this election.

  • Kris

    Does anyone really believe this? Husain wants to moniter the people! He wants to get rid of the dissadents so he can complete his dictatorship without alot of opposition. If this were true, then why is he bringing terrorists over here from Palestine, and other terrorists countries by the 100′s of thousands? This is nazi Germany in the 1930′s! All Hussain has to do is go on tv, smile and lie, and all the stupids eat it up and vote for him! The same goes for voting for Romney. Idiots wll vote for him because “he’s cute”, instead of looking at hisrecord. That’s how we got Husain folks!

  • 101stRECON68

    Always be careful what you say, what you write and what you think. The eyes are always on you. Has it come to this that our government has become so over-burdensome and over-bearing that we fear it so? The government should fear the people and not the other way around. It may be too late already. But Americans MUST get off their PARTY floats in the sham political parade and vote out all those not following or believing in the Constitution. THAT is the only peaceful opportunity left and it’s time is fading quickly. We only have a short time left to get our house in order or we will all pay the price. The trolls and party hacks like to see us arguing Democrat vrs Republican or North vrs South or Progessive vrs Conservative. When are you knuckleheads going to wake up and see how you are being maniplulated like puppets? It’s Bush’s fault, it’s Obama’s fault. Blah blah blah. Who cares? It’s OUR fault for voting any of these buffoons into office. Nearly all of them are nothing but crooks, liars and thiefs and we keep putting them in year year freaking year because they are republican or democrat and we cannpt possibly vote for anything else. Bull feathers! It has become disgusting listening to and watching Americans fight among themselves. Keep the serfs/slaves fighting with each other and they’ll leave us alone so we can do our thing. We are all idiots and probably deserve what’s coming for we have ALL had a hand in it!

    • ChristyK

      Well said.

  • H. D. Schmidt

    All the US ends up doing is teaching the whole wideworld to hate America more and more and making the Fouding Fathers shake in their graves. And not to forget that even ending up for Americas to hate our own Federal Government more and more! Yes, the British King did likewise; hence the reaction by some young men who “told” him to get out of what became America, and also told him to never come back. Could something again happen for an emancipation from the USA itself, by some young Americans tired of the tyranny also and again? Who knows and I hope it never needs to happen! We must elect Ron Paul to avoid such disaster! He is the only one that speaks the language of the Founding Fathers, and has always acted accordingly, in private life and more so as a politician! The rest aspirants to be President are war mongers including the two ladies, that of Bachman and Palin, who actually are as bad as the men if not worse.

    • FactNotRhetoric

      The RON PAUL REVOLUTION is hopefully the only revolution we’ll ever need to see in the US.

      I do not want to see Americans fighting Americans. This is what the Saudi-Hitlers of the world want. This is what “Saudi Puppet Obama” wants.

  • Buck

    Let me get this straight , some Marines in Afghanistan were disciplined for flying an SS flag but it is okay for Obamass to form his own SS right here in the US of A . Please help RON PAUL help us !!!

  • Gringo Infidel

    Yep – they are mining for folks who fit this profile:

    Love liberty and believe in the U.S. Constitution
    Exercise their rights of free speech, protecting their property, pursuing their own ideas of happiness, and practices a Judeo-Christian religion.
    Uses cash to buy things
    Shows concern over privacy and too much government interference

    Hey, that is most Americans.

  • WickedPickle

    Okay, let me get this straight PLN Desk.. “The U.S. government is looking for software that can mine social media sites (you know, sites like this) to predict everything from future terrorist attacks to foreign uprisings”..

    .. I think you were cut-off short, I think you left out.. The OTHER reason? The one that is masked over by patriotic type garble.. The REAL reason Feddy wants this power.. For future NATIONAL uprisings. The uprisings that MAY appear if Obama is re-elected.. The future uprisings that WILL appear when family, friends and neighbors begin to mysteriously disappear as NDAA begins to be initiated.. Don’t forget to include THAT if you really want to be an informative media.

  • Raggs

    I have been blocked from most of the personal liberty blogs so I will not come back to this site again.. I can figure that it was my outspoken point of view, well pitty me?

    When I was in middle school (1983), we learnd that the electorial votes are the one’s that are counted. At that point I knew we had no voice in the elections. I have only vote 2 times in my life because I know that almost all politicians are lying to the public, thieves,and believe they are above the law, which it seems they are. I will vote in this election Ron Paul. I feel that he is the best candidate, that will represent the common people. I am sorry if this ensures Obama the win, but i will vote my concience. May God have mercy on the U.S.

  • http://Comcast JimBob

    They can call it what they want but it sounds to me like the turd in the white house is way too thin-skinned. I believe what they will be looking for is comments like mine. Authors of such comments can then be sent to “re-education classes.” Must not besmirch the image of one who tarnished his own image, eh?

  • Ghost

    These bastards would love to do some thing like that, if they could. It is the nature of tyrants, and control freaks. I bet if they had the ability to open their bellies to put us in their wombs, they would, under the guise of protecting us; just so they could have their way and become our parents. Such a thing as this, isn’t possible, but they can turn technology against their fellow man. Death to tyrants! and May God put them in their place for this crap.

  • Patriot-Be-Vigilant

    This is old news. Even Obama’s White House Staff began collecting social networking data in the first months of his administration. Staff surfed the social network websites and other sits via internet searches to collect all material that referenced his administration, Pro and Con.

    The efforts to collect material, catalogued and store the material was intense. The White House Staff in August 2009 issued an RFQ to have an outside contractor collect the material for eight years. All material would be protected by ‘executive privilege’.

    It is my opinion that the details in the RFQ bring back memories of Watergate and the laws passed to prevent a second Watergate. The vendor Q&A notes strengthen those memories.

    Quoted from RFQ -

    Solicitation Number WHO-S-09-0003 is issued as a Request for Quote (RFQ).
    (III) The solicitation document and incorporated provisions and clauses are those in effect through Federal Acquisition Circular 2005-36, effective on August 11, 2009.

    The contractor shall provide the necessary services to capture, store, extract to approved formats, and transfer content published by EOP on publicly-accessible web sites, along with information posted by non-EOP persons on publicly-accessible web sites where the EOP offices under PRA maintains a presence, throughout the term of the contract. The contractor shall if possible, capture, store, extract to approved formats, and transfer content published by EOP on non-public websites. The contractor shall include in the information posted by non-EOP persons on publicly-accessible web sites where the EOP maintains a presence both comments posted on pages created by EOP and messages sent to EOP accounts on those web sites. Publicly-accessible sites may include, but are not limited to social networking sites.

    - End Quote

    [Specific social networking sites stated in RFQ: facebook, twitter, myspace, flickr, youtube, vimeo, slideshare, itunes, and linkedlin]
