Charges have been brought forward on Andrew Otto Boggs and Justin Gray Liverman of North Carolina, who have been accused of hacking into the email servers of email accounts of CIA Director John Brennan, Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson and Director of National Intelligence James Clapper and subsequently giving the findings to Wikileaks to reveal to the world.
Boggs believes that he was caught after investigators tracked his IP address through his Twitter account, but as Cassandra Fairbanks of We Are Change reports, “Liverman does not believe that was the case however, and that the FBI used illegal tactics to aid in their arrests. The method he believes that they employed are in line with the highly controversial amendments to Rule 41, which would allow for the agency to hack and surveil an unlimited number of computers and devices globally, without a warrant.”
This day and age, there’s no reason not to question the legitimacy of the federal government. They have proven time and time again that they cannot be trusted to work within the boundaries of the law, so there’s no reason to believe that they used legal ways to catch Boggs and Liverman. Furthermore, you have to wonder what the two men uncovered that the CIA, FBI, and DHS officials desperately didn’t want to be revealed.
We’re living in one of the most uncertain eras in American history, when the government is so corrupt that nothing seems to surprise anymore. They continue to treat the citizens of our country as if they have no rights. Government officials believe that they are so far above us that they can treat us however they please and we just have to shut up and take it. They hide classified information that proves their corruption and then punish the people who expose it.
If there is one thing that the people of the United States deserve, it’s the truth. With so much corruption and so much deception, it is important that we constantly know what we’re dealing with, so it’s especially upsetting that the federal government is going to the lengths that they are to keep us from knowing what is really going on. Something big is clearly on the horizon and we all need to be prepared for the absolute worst — because that is what we are up against.
The police state is growing stronger every day. We have to reject it if we want to survive and live freely once again.
