The Five Eyes surveillance cabal, established at the end of World War 2, includes the US, UK, Australia, Canada and New Zealand. The agreement covers how intelligence is shared. And that’s about all we know about it.
Description: Abby Martin takes a closer look at a recent NSA leak which links the US, UK, Australia, Canada and New Zealand as an international intelligence partnership focused on surveillance of each other’s citizens.
Is The Five Eyes Alliance watching you? – Truthloader
Edward Snowden’s whistleblowing has revealed the secret snooping conducted by the NSA, GCHQ and other western intelligence agencies. But this sort of signal intelligence sharing goes back way further than you might think – Truthloader looked into The Five Eyes Alliance (the US, the UK, Canada, Australia and New Zealand) and another secret project named ECHELON.

No that’s not me, it’s part of a fund raising campaign for the Wounded Warrior Program sponsored by Brawny paper towels.
This is my wish to all Americans:
Happy Independence Day! Even if it doesn’t mean what it used to mean.
A couple messages on Facebook from friends in Australia reminded me what Independence Day is supposed to mean: Freedom from tyranny. Of course, the NSA and DHS are now pinging on every utterance of “patriot”, “Liberty”, and “tyranny”.
I recently (last night) for the first time watched the motion picture The Road to Perdition with Paul Newman, Tom Hanks, and Daniel Craig. Now before you think I’m jumping off the deep end by tying that movie to the Fourth of July, stick with me.
What does it take to change the minds of world class curmudgeons? World class evidence!
For decades, if not centuries, we’ve been fed this idea that our progenitors were stupid brutes. The idea that people, even a few individuals, of previous eras could be anywhere near as smart as our current crop of academicians was cause for guffaws from said academicians. Time to listen up, boys and girls, your great grand daddy was a lot smarter than you used to think and probably was smarter than you are now.

The alternative is that he had those things. Either way, he could do something we didn’t think he could until now.
The Island of Cyprus is not within sight of any mainland anywhere. It’s about a hundred miles from the nearest coast. In order to reach Crete by any known transportation means requires a set of complex skills related to operating a vessel or vehicle and navigation of that craft, itself a set of complex mathematical and spatial relationship skills.

A US television crew has recorded what it believes is compelling audio evidence of the existence of yowies.
The four-member team from Animal Planet’s Finding Bigfoot series were on an expedition through remote forests spanning the Queensland and NSW border when they made the recordings.
Bigfoot Field Research Organization member James “Bobo” Fay said that of the more than 20 expeditions conducted around the world by the TV team, this was “maybe the best one as far as audio recordings”.
While he was reluctant to give details ahead of presenting their evidence on the still-to-be-completed third season of the US show, Fay said that in two different locations they had activity that they had attributed to a yowie – the fabled ape-like creature of the Aussie bush.
“We got some really compelling audio,” he said.
“It is not a known species, I can tell you that. One of the details (convinces us) there is nothing else it could have been.” . . . Read Complete Report
