According to a disturbing new report the Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA) revealed to congressional investigators that it had repeatedly accessed data on the locations of US citizen’s cell phones in spite of not having obtained a warrant for such information.

The revelation is especially concerning in light of the Biden Administration’s apparent plans to target conservatives after the attack on the Capitol Building on January 6th.

As The Wall Street Journal reports:

The Defense Intelligence Agency told congressional investigators that the agency has access to “commercially available geolocation metadata aggregated from smartphones” from both the U.S. and abroad. It said it had queried its database to look at the location information of U.S.-based smartphones five times in the last 2½ years as part of authorized investigations.

Such data is typically drawn from smartphone apps such as weather, games and other apps that get user permission to access a phone’s GPS location. A robust commercial market exists for such data for advertising and other commercial purposes. The Wall Street Journal first revealed last year that numerous U.S. government agencies were also buying access to that data from commercial brokers without a warrant, raising questions about whether those agencies were adequately safeguarding the privacy and civil liberties of Americans.

The ability of U.S. intelligence agencies to access data on Americans for intelligence purposes is typically circumscribed. A warrant from the secretive Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court is required for most kinds of surveillance. However, the Defense Intelligence Agency told Congress that it didn’t believe it needed any sort of court authorization to acquire commercial data for foreign intelligence or national security purposes.

Why do you have a low opinion of the military? Maybe I just didn’t get the ironic wit. I served 14 yrs in the USN Communications Intelligence. I speak five languages. Do you?

I have heard that phrase used quite often by solders who did the actual “boots on the ground” work.

Do you feel/know if the military of today admired and supported Trump for the support he gave them? Propaganda and many news media have painted to the public that Trump was not well received by the military and there certainly were military men in high positions that were outspoken. Unfortunately, many have been indoctrinated against America and the true values our country stands for, especially the truth.

Military ranks supported Trump. Generals & admirals end up going political. very few survive being Patton/ Swartzkoff types.

I don’t believe anything personal was directed at you personally. It’s kind of like Down Escalator, jumbo shrimp, and pretty ugly. It was a poor attempt at humor. My dad was 21 years USN and did a lot of communications work during the big war, and I know it was one heck of a tough job for him. Thanks for serving.

It’s a joke that has been told many times over the years. Get over yourself. Kind of like: what’s the opposite of pro? Con? So what’s the opposite of Progress? Congress. See? A joke.

You seemingly know so little about serving in the military, being deployed, and the logistics required and supplied by our Intelligence officers and staffer.

All that college degree means is they have lots of book learning it does not mean they are or are not smart. It also does mean they/you do or don’t have any common sense.

The house intelligence committee is an oxymoron when it has members like Adam Schiff and Nadless. It should be changed to the house LACK of intelligence committee.

If you have a cell phone your already being tracked. The towers pings your phone to locate it for incoming calls. Ever notice how fast police find people doing crimes or missing persons (In most cases) ? Also how fast they find people all the way across the country that run from crimes. I assume they ping their phones, Cars (Many cars have internet connection built in and are watching / listening to you. Also plate readers or AI on major highways watch for their cars and alert the police. So how do you stop the tracking? I have heard rumors that these Covid shots include nanobots that they track and also that’s why they want you to stand six feet apart because the signals get scrambled when closer. I don’t really know and there is always lots of “What if’s” out there. All I do know is GOD is still in charge and this country is going to go through a rough four years if it makes it at all. I feel the commie Obiden and Obummer are trying to take it down with the NWO and U.N. We will see. GOD BLESS and Pray for America.

You are right on on all if what you said. I’ve been wanting to buy an old truck before they started putting computers in vehicles and get rid of my cell for a landline. and get rid of my computer.
