With the articles of impeachment being formally written up this month, and the division of the country ever-widening, new information on a citizen surveillance program was discovered today during a closed door interrogation that may actually link the Trump and Obama Administration. The information about the citizen surveillance program, classified as the Optic Drift Project (ODP), was discovered during the continuing Ukraine probe when investigators further searched the classified computer system that held the Trump/ Zelensky phone conversation transcripts. |
The search revealed plans to reinstate a classified NSA program that was allegedly initiated, but never completed, by the Obama administration. The Optic Drift Project was a combined effort between the government and top tech firms, which used government defense resources for testing new technology geared towards allowing the government unfettered access to any technologies currently on the market, as well as anything which could be developed in the future. This would include such products as Google Lens (a contact lens containing a micro-camera), as well as Elon Musk’s recently announced Neuralink.
The amendment to 2003’s Patriot Act would take place in 2021 according to the documents. While the information was discovered amongst other plans for the Trump administration in the case of re-election, the initial surveillance test for the program dates back to the Obama administration.
This form of surveillance would affect every American citizen. Your tech savvy friend could easily end up as a repository of NSA spying. As technology moves further and further in an almost trans-humanist path, this could allow for serious issues regarding our constitutional right to privacy. It opens the floodgates for a more intrusive form of spying than we have previously seen. No longer will only your phone calls be recorded, your emails, your internet browsing history, but instead everything you see and every aspect of your private life, the data would then in turn be directed to agencies such as Homeland Security and the NSA. No matter what end of the political spectrum you fall, or what administration you disagree with the most, this is one scandal that we can all agree needs a much more coverage than it has seen.
