Recent revelations by wikileaks, if true, is really scary. Can you imagine what the CIA can do with these cyber tools? They are illegal and who will watch over the CIA?
Power corrupts, absolute power corrupts absolutely...
The CIA has always "been out of control " , its just that the CIA used to operate mainly OUTSIDE of the US borders for one , One more government intelligence agency being ideologically politicized .
Like the obvious politicization of the entire DOJ. ?
The real question is are we out of control. Since its inception, the CIA has been tasked with manipulating other countries to our benefit. In many cases our interference has caused more trouble and harm than good. Iran, Afghanistan, Central America this list is long. Most of the ill will we feel in the world is because of the CIA and what it does. So, if the CIA is a monster then we are Dr. Frankenstein. We made this monster.
Snowden gave us the revelations on what has been going on.
President Trump tweeted out that he thought Obama was wiretapping him. The liberal media mocked him, and Obama comes out and denies it. They got trolled beautifully! Wiretapping has been going on since rotary phones and maybe longer.
Then, we find out in only days through Wikileaks that they were spying on Trump and anyone else they wanted to spy on world-wide. Believe me the CIA and NSA don't want to know what individuals had for breakfast or if you purchased a handgun of self defense.
Someone wanted us to have the technological solution at the same level as the CIA and NSA. I heard that there are people working on a suite of tools right now who will be able to offer corporations, companies and governments all around the world a way to harden their computers and phones against the Deep State spying that has been coming out of the USA. It will be good for developers in the tech industry and for the economy. Better still, the bad guys will be put in the dark and not be able to spy for nefarious gains.
I believe the good guys in the counter coup won again.
1984 the book was so prophetic...by George Orwell.
How did we come to this?
We learned from the Book of Romes that the world (god of this world, fallen angels, world leaders, scribes, etc.) suppress the truth. They had to announce their planned grand deception publicly? Yes perhaps, that is the way the courts of heaven works... and then they reduced non-fiction into fiction and sci-fi.
What that breeds... Ignorance.
Inception might be a better descriptive word than deception in regards to 1984.
It reads like predictive linguistics.

This is a simple question and the American people deserves an answer. We have a he said he said situation where Trump say the FBI was in disarray while Comey said everything is great. Which is it? It should not be hard...

Let me be clear; there are plenty of things Obama did or didn’t do in those two years, so I am far from happy, but let’s try to be fair. He inherited a terrible economic mess and two wars with no end in sight; there...

There are too many guns in the United States. How many more shootings need to happen for people to realize that the second amendment is outdated. I'm not trying to say that nobody should be allowed to have one, I have...
