The DEA and ICE Are Hiding Cameras in The Darnedest Places

Even when you think that you aren’t being watched, these DEA vendors say that you are.

Big Brother

As our world becomes for more digitally savvy, concerns over the use of such technology to invade our privacy are common.

From the annals of George Orwell’s timeless novel 1984 comes the idea of “Big Brother” – the all seeing, all knowing network at the center of the story.  Big Brother’s colloquial impact cannot be understated as we move forward into this world of tiny camera, neural networks, and predictive algorithms, not to mention the bold and possibly reckless work being done with artificial intelligence.

As with Orwell’s tome, the real life Big Brother raises righteous concerns over our right to privacy, and our right to live life “innocent until proven guilty”.  With cameras everywhere, there is no longer a presumption of innocence, however, and the latest maneuver from DEA and ICE are a step in this tyrannical direction. 

The US Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) and Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) have hidden an undisclosed number of covert surveillance cameras inside streetlights around the country, federal contracting documents reveal.

According to government procurement data, the DEA has paid a Houston, Texas company called Cowboy Streetlight Concealments LLC roughly $22,000 since June 2018 for “video recording and reproducing equipment.” ICE paid out about $28,000 to Cowboy Streetlight Concealments over the same period of time.

It’s unclear where the DEA and ICE streetlight cameras have been installed, or where the next deployments will take place. ICE offices in Dallas, Houston, and San Antonio have provided funding for recent acquisitions from Cowboy Streetlight Concealments; the DEA’s most recent purchases were funded by the agency’s Office of Investigative Technology, which is located in Lorton, Virginia.

Trending: REPORT: Ruth Bader Ginsburg to Retire This Month, Has Contracted Pneumonia

Even the manufacturer had an ominous warning for US citizens:

Christie Crawford, who owns Cowboy Streetlight Concealments with her husband, a Houston police officer, said she was not at liberty to discuss the company’s federal contracts in detail.

“We do streetlight concealments and camera enclosures,” Crawford told Quartz. “Basically, there’s businesses out there that will build concealments for the government and that’s what we do. They specify what’s best for them, and we make it. And that’s about all I can probably say.”

However, she added: “I can tell you this—things are always being watched. It doesn’t matter if you’re driving down the street or visiting a friend, if government or law enforcement has a reason to set up surveillance, there’s great technology out there to do it.”

Streetlights aren’t the only place in which the DEA is concealing cameras, either.

According to other concealment manufacturers, a number of cameras have been installed within traffic barrels as well.

Could be huge…

The writing is on the wall.

Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, 85, has recently canceled multiple events.

She has also skipped multiple days of oral arguments for the first time in her career.

Back in September, The Santa Monica Observer reported RBG had developed cancer.

Snopes, the far-left “fact-checking” site, said that report was false.

Snopes lied.

Ginsburg did, indeed, have surgery for cancer.

The Santa Monica Observer is now saying Ruth has contracted pneumonia and will retire from the bench in January 2019.

Here’s their headline from the article:

U.S. Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg has had a re-occurrence of malignant melanoma, she has told her law clerks. Ginsburg was treated in 1999 for colon cancer and had surgery in 2009 for pancreatic cancer.

She has told key Democratic members of the Senate about her medical condition, including ranking Democratic member of the Judiciary Committee Dianne Feinstein.

Liberals offered up vital organs to Ginsburg as she recovers from broken ribs and the removal of tumors.

They have a feeling, given her advanced age, that President Trump may soon be appointing his third Supreme Court nominee.

Anti-Trump filmmaker Michael Moore decided to mock Christians by using an RBG doll as his Christmas tree topper this year.

You know, because absolutely everything has to be political!

My Christmas Tree Topper this year. Better than an angel or the star over Bethlehem. A nation of millions stand with you…

The much-hyped miderm election “blue wave” turned out to be less of a tsunami and more of a light sprinkling, as the GOP grew in the Senate and lost minimally in the House.

Historically, the party of the sitting president doesn’t do well in the midterms in either the lower or upper chamber.

And yet, while the GOP ceded control of the House to Democrats, the loss could’ve been much worse.

As for President Trump’s chances in 2020, things are certainly looking up, as a Republican will remain governor in swing states Ohio and Florida.

What does Moore think of Dems’ chances?

From Free Beacon:

Liberal activist and filmmaker Michael Moore on Wednesday said President Donald Trump is a “tumor” on the political system but predicted he will hold onto the White House in 2020 if Democrats don’t run a “beloved American” or non-politician.

Moore appeared on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” to discuss the midterm election results from Tuesday night and how they will affect the 2020 election. He said Trump is a “tumor on our democracy” but noted Democratic victories caused the “tumor” to shrink last night.

WATCH:

At the moment, the top choice for Democrat presidential nominee in 2020 is “none of the above.”

Not Joe Biden. Not Eric Holder.

Not Hillary Clinton or Michael Avenatti.

Not Kamala Harris, Cory Booker, or Elizabeth Warren.

Not Michael Bloomberg, Bernie Sanders, or Amy Klobuchar.

From The Hill:

The survey, conducted among 680 registered voters who identified themselves as Democrats or independents, found that “none of the above” was the most popular choice among potential 2020 challengers to President Trump.

Thirty percent of the sample said they would prefer that “none of the above” become the Democratic nominee when asked to choose among former Vice President Joe Biden, Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D), Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders (I), New Jersey Sen. Cory Booker (D), California Sen. Kamala Harris (D), former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.

65 million people voted for Hillary Clinton in 2016, and failed Senate candidate Beto O’Rourke just broke every single one of their hearts.

Muslim Democrat Just Got HUMILIATED By A Quarter Million American Patriots (Details)

How about them apples?

Freshman Democrats are making a lot of noise at the start of the 116th Congress.

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (Democrat Socialist), Ilhan Omar (anti-Semite), and Rashida Tlaib (also an anti-Semite) are three of the loudest.

Naturally, all three women loathe President Donald Trump despite the best unemployment numbers in decades and numerous other achievements by the current administration.

Now, Tlaib gets some very bad news from a quarter million American patriots.

She may have just arrived but it’s already time for her impeachment!

LOOK:

You know Tlaib as the woman who screamed that she’s going to impeach Trump, the “motherf*****.”

She’s the first Palestinian-American woman in Congress.

Sign the petition AT THIS LINK.

The petition reads:

.RASHIDA TLAIB of Michigan was questionably elected to our house of representatives during the November 2018 primary election process. She lied about living in Detroit using her fathers house address .. she never lived there .. she lived in Dearborn ., her father has verified this .. .. if this is not the case os TLAIB Denies we would like proof of her residency in Detroit .. We also demand a full investigation and recount of every vote that she supposedly received .. we also demand a full list of all campaign contributions and who donated to her because she has publicly displayed affiliations with extremist organizations on her social media accounts .. her words and actions are unprofessional to say the least using profanity and hate filled rhetoric against our country our citizens and our president ..SHES THE ONE WHO SAID WE ARE GOING TO IMPEACH THIS MOT F€£KER REFERING TO OUR PRESIDENT .. she is unfit to serve in any capacity within our government because of her extreme bias .. the goal of this petition is to gather enough signatures to bring her actions against the United States into public view so that we may initiate an investigation into her background , and end her political career ..

Tlaib was responding to a tweet from a Jewish senator when she unleashed an anti-Semitic slur.

From Daily Wire:

Freshman Democratic Congresswoman Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) is creating fresh controversy in her second week in the House of Representatives, but this time it’s over a shocking, anti-Semitic slur leveled at her Congressional colleagues for their support of a bill which would allow local, state, and federal agencies to avoid doing business with entities that support the anti-Israel Boycott-Divestment-Sanction (or BDS) movement.

Did you catch it?

The “dual loyalty” smear is a typical — if horrifying — anti-Semitic charge, a fact Tlaib is no doubt aware of.

Senator Rubio noticed:

More on Tlaib:

Tlaib and Ilhan Omar (D-MN) are the first two female Muslims elected to Congress.

On their first day in office, Tlaib and Omar gleefully posed for pictures with radical activist and anti-Semite, Linda Sarsour.

From Daily Wire:

Far-left Reps. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) and Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) embraced anti-Semite and alleged Muslim Brotherhood sympathizer Linda Sarsour this week on their first day in Congress.

Sarsour is a noted anti-Semite who wants people to stop “humanizing” Jews.

From Daily Wire:

Far-left Islamic activist Linda Sarsour made strong anti-Semitic remarks during a speech this month at the annual Islamic Society of North America (ISNA) convention in Houston, Texas — calling for the dehumanization of Israelis.

Sarsour: “So when we start debating in the Muslim community about Palestine, it tells me a lot about you and about the type of faith that you have in your heart. If you’re on the side of the oppressor, or you’re defending the oppressor, or you’re actually trying to humanize the oppressor, then that’s a problem sisters and brothers, and we got to be able to say: That is not the position of the Muslim American community.

Sarsour is rumored to be a Muslim Brotherhood sympathizer, as evidenced by the tweet below:

The founder of the Women’s March, Teresa Shook, is calling on Sarsour to step down for her anti-Semitic and homophobic remarks.

“As Founder of the Women’s March, my original vision and intent was to show the capacity of human beings to stand in solidarity and love against the hateful rhetoric that had become a part of the political landscape in the U.S. and around the world. I wanted us to prove that the majority of us are decent people who want a world that is fair, just and inclusive of Women and All people. We proved that on January 21, 2017 (and in the U.S. this past midterm with a diverse electorate).

Bob Bland, Tamika Mallory, Linda Sarsour and Carmen Perez of Women’s March, Inc. have steered the Movement away from its true course. I have waited, hoping they would right the ship. But they have not. In opposition to our Unity Principles, they have allowed anti-Semitism, anti- LBGTQIA sentiment and hateful, racist rhetoric to become a part of the platform by their refusal to separate themselves from groups that espouse these racist, hateful beliefs. I call for the current Co-Chairs to step down and to let others lead who can restore faith in the Movement and its original intent. I stand in Solidarity with all the Sister March Organizations, to bring the Movement back to its authentic purpose. As Women’s March founder, I am stepping up to bring focus back to the Unity Principles on which our movement began, and with the support of all of those who marched and have continued to march, I pledge to support grassroots, decentralized leadership promoting a safe, worldwide community devoid of hate speech, bigotry and racism.”

Women’s Marches are being canceled all over the country, including Chicago and California.

Anti-Semitism is rampant among the group’s “leaders.”

As far as the Golden State is concerned, the march was canceled because too many white people signed up as opposed to other races.

How funny.

From WJLA:

“Up to this point, the participants have been overwhelmingly white, lacking representation from several perspectives in our community,” the press release went on to say. “Instead of pushing forward with crucial voices absent, the organizing team will take time for more outreach. Our goal is that planning will continue and we will be successful in creating an event that will build power and community engagement through connection between women that seek to improve the lives of all in our community.”
