FederalJack.Com Says Homeland Security is Already Watching You Intensely

On the subject of CIA agents and assets, FederalJack.Com, whose header shows the statement that, "Conspiracy is no longer theory," says, "Mexican Newspaper Uncovers Systemic Monitoring Plans of Public Online Sources by DHS, citing the Department of Homeland Security PDF, accessed through the Freedom of Information Act, as reported by Mexican newspaper, El Milenio:
(EFF)   Two weeks ago, the Mexican newspaper El Milenio reported on a U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Office of Operations Coordination and Planning (OPC) initiative to monitor social media sites, blogs, and forums throughout the world. The document, obtained by El Milenio through a U.S. Freedom of Information Act request, discloses how OPC’s National Operations Center (NOC) plans to initiate systematic monitoring of publicly available online data including “information posted by individual account users” on social media.
The NOC monitors, collects and fuses information from a variety of sources to provide a “real-time snap shot of the [U.S.] nation’s threat environment at any moment.” The NOC also coordinates information sharing to “help deter, detect, and prevent terrorist acts and to manage [U.S.] domestic incidents.” The NOC has initiated systemic monitoring of publicly available, user-generated data to follow real-time developments in U.S. crisis activities such as natural disasters as well as to help corroborate data received through official sources with ‘on-the-ground’ input.
Although I skimmed the document for 30 seconds, assuming that it is truly from the DOHC, it seems clear that sites like Facebook, Brazil's Orkut, LinkedIn.Com and Googles new social networking site will be constantly monitored.  Don't say anything online that constitutes the admission of a crime or the admission of an attempted crime.  It could easily be used against you in a court of law.

The Atlantic is up in arms over a bill before Congress, titled the Protecting Children From Internet Pornographers Act of 2011, that would require Internet service providers to capture credit card data, bank statements, IP information and search history from every user and keep it on hand for 18 months.
So, even if you use an anonymous screen name, the Government intends to monitor your  every transaction and correspondence.  They are probably doing so now, except that the above cited bill would require Internet providers to hand over virtually all that is public and private about individuals to the Federal Government.  As FederalJack.Com says, "Conspiracy is no longer a theory," but instead is a fact, and now a fact in the form of a bill in the US Congress.  As Stevie Wonder once sang, "Kiss Lonely Goodby" because no matter what you are doing at your computer, your data is being recorded.
