On the ground
An unintended eye-opener in a column by Napolitano.
He's mainly worrying, as usual, about the obsolete null question of "constitutionality". He accidentally hits a HUGE point here:
The raw data these agencies examine is the same. Today America’s spies rarely do their own spying; rather, they rely on the work done by the National Security Agency.
STOP AND THINK.
Old-fashioned spies planted themselves in real industries and real neighborhoods where they could OBSERVE REALITY with all of their senses.
China's spies still do it that way. China has 100k physical spies in our industries and research facilities. They OBSERVE REALITY DIRECTLY.
QUESTION. What would happen if NSA decided to put less emphasis on its ELECTRONIC monitoring of Americans, and instead did some Chinese-style spying on Americans?
What would a truly observant NSA spy see and smell and hear in an ordinary neighborhood like this one?
He would see white and black and injun people mostly getting along and mostly minding their own business.
He would see a few people who are committing crimes, and he would notice that those people are black. He would see that the police are hesitant to do anything about these criminals because the fucking city dysgovernment fears Soros and does not fear the people who pay taxes.
He would see ordinary black single mothers herding their kids to school just like ordinary white single mothers, both afraid of the black criminals.
He would see Mormon families somehow insulated from cultural rot, and he would see non-Mormon families falling apart and overdosing and jumping from bridges.
He would see some people working 18 hours a day, living no better than the people who are relying on food stamps and welfare.
Would he conclude that the people around here didn't need Russian "hacking" to become discontented with the 30-year-long WAR ON AMERICA waged by the globalists?
No, but at least he would have NO EXCUSE for missing reality.
