Jay-Z’s App and Obama’s Criminal Enterprise

Are we reaching that “critical mass”?

To gauge the real impact of a historic development like “the Snowden revelations”, it’s sometimes useful to examine how wide it’s being felt. An illustration: Jay-Z’s “Magna Carta Holy Grail” Samsung cellphone app. I’ve a feeling some may not know what I’m talking about because, up until this past Friday, neither did I. But my May First/People Link colleague and office buddy Hilary Goldstein (who has often been the source of ideas for my writings here) sent me an email with a link to a story about the controversy [1] and it got me thinking about how our society has succumbed to a massive crime and how this might be a kind of “critical mass”.

The story starts with a Tweet by a respected Hip Hop artist named Michael “Killer Mike” Render. The Atlanta, Georgia resident issued a tweet this week displaying a graphic of the registration screen for the Magna Carta Holy Grail App with the cryptic but powerful message: “Naw…I’m cool.” The app (a term used to describe small applications often used on hand-held devices) lets the user download a new album (called “Magna Carta Holy Grail”) by Hip Hop super-star Jay-Z.

The App and the ArtistThe App and the Artist

The meaning of the message (a bit more dismissive than “Thanks but no thanks”) is significant because over a half million people had already said “yes” to that App and had downloaded it to their phones. In the process, they gave Samsung their names, specific GPS location, approximate network location and the phone’s precise id and status as well as permission to “modify or delete contents” from their USB storage, stop the phone from sleeping and get full access to their network communications.

In other words, you give them a treasure trove of information about you in exchange for downloading a “pre-release” version of this album.

Why give in to such an intrusion? The most obvious answer is to get an advanced copy of the already critically acclaimed album by one of the greatest musical artists of all time.

Shawn Corey Carter, known as Jay-Z, grew up on tough streets in Brooklyn, New York (where he led what he himself terms a “gangsta life-style”) and has risen to world-wide reknown as a musical genius. His evocative and innovative lyrics, run over brilliant instrumental mixes, touch on themes and topics touched on in “conceptual albums”: tracks that are hung together under one theme. His legendary discipline and the shere quantify of quality music he puts out make him singular in his industry. He’s also a successful businessman (already reportedly worth over a half billion dollars) with a diverse array of businesses. Because of what he’s done with his life and what he does with his music, it’s hard not to admire Jay-Z.

Carter is, above all, an innovator and so it’s probable that he saw the value in pre-releasing his album as a Samsung app to address a mostly young audience that uses that technology while departing from the competitive and even hostile attitude the recording industry has had towards the Internet. He probably hardly noticed that Samsung was gathering critical information on people for marketing and (given what we know) turning it over to the government. Not that he would necessarily care but Killer Mike does and so, apparently, do a striking number of other “fans”.

Killer Mike Render has 69,000 followers on his Twitter account and when he dropped this little diss it was noticed enough to be the subject of a long litany of tweet responses about surveillance and several trade articles noting the protest. The album also caught the attention of hacktivists [2] who took quick and brilliant action. As a result, some of the people trying to download the real app were actually downloading a hack app, a piece of “malware”, software that mimics real software but does “malicious” things. Of course, one person’s “malicious” is sometimes another’s act of protest.

“On the surface, the malware app functions identically to the legit app,” writes Irfan Asrar on MacAfee’s Blog Central [3]. “But in in the background, the malware sends info about the infected device to an external server every time the phone restarts.” The malware then tries to install additional software and, on July 4, it replaced wallpaper on the infected device with an image of President Obama and commentary on the recent spying scandals. In short, a political message hack.

Asrar, a worthy commentator on things technological, issued his blog as a warning to all who download such apps — be careful what you download, it could be malware. But that admonition misses the point: the malware itself is a warning. It is reminding people that the information Samsung is demanding in exchange for this album is, effectively, surveillance and part of a gross violation by our government of the Constitution of the United States. Know it or not, Jay-Z is facilitating the criminal behavior of corporations and the government.

Those who think “criminal” might be too strong a word might start by looking at the Fourth Amendment to the Constitution because many people, perhaps most, don’t really know what it says. In fact, top Security officials like former NSA chief Michael Hayden (who’s been making the pundit rounds recently representing the Obama Administration) seem to have no idea [4].

Here then is the Fourth Amendment to the Constitution of the United States of America, part of what is called The Bill of Rights, proposed by the Congress in 1789 and made law in 1791 after all State legislatures approved it.

“The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.”

This is the “privacy” amendment. In case after case for more than two centuries, it has been relied on to support the First Amendment’s clause establishing “the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances”. It’s the legal basis for our rights as a movement for progressive change.

Virtually every word of the amendment completely contradicts the surveillance the U.S. government is routinely conducting. So the question is pertinent: Is our government engaging in criminal behavior?

Are the searches and seizures in these programs “reasonable”? Were there warrants issued for them based on “probable cause”? Did they specifically describe the search place and what was to be seized? Absolutely not. The aggressive and blanket seizure of information can’t be considered reasonable unless there is a “reasonable suspicion” that everyone in this country is violating the law. There is certainly no probable cause here; in fact, for much of the seized data (collected from storage devices in other countries), there are no warrants and when warrants are involved they are issued by a secret court which only hears one side of any argument: the government’s side. As for “particularly describing” the place to be searched and what’s to be seized, the answer “all phone records and the entire Internet” doesn’t qualify.

That this issue of criminal behavior isn’t being publicly debated is the outcome of decades of social conditioning: an Orwellian soup that blends programmed ignorance about our real history with a groundless fear of people from other countries and spices the mix with exploitation of the human tendency to deny the unthinkable. Meanwhile, our government spins at top speed when it can’t hide information and frantically covers up and lies about that information that has not yet been revealed.

This is political bankruptcy at its worst and these past three weeks have been an ode to that bankruptcy.

It was revealed that our President has spied on us and lied to us, completely violating the letter and spirit of the Constitution written to protect us and put checks on his office. His Administration continues wars and attacks world-wide that are not legally sanctioned or popularly supported and that are, for the most part, based on lies and distortions. There’s little question that the Obama Administration was behind the shocking treatment of Bolivian President Juan Evo Morales whose plane was denied airspace access by several European allies under the suspicion that Snowden was aboard (he wasn’t, though if he had been, Morales would have had every right to be flying him home to Bolivia)

The Congress, with an approval rating of about 9 percent for over two years now, has stopped functioning productively. It makes no laws. It approves no programs. All it does is destroy what we have built and turn over much of its functional power to the Executive Branch or to the States in a retrenchment to pre-Civil War governance that should at a minimum lead to a wholesale ousting of the entire membership of both houses and would lead to a complete “government organization” in most democracies.

That’s not happening, though, because we have become a society of cynics. Nobody expects the Congress to do anything about a country that has unemployed its people, wasted most of their money on useless war and eroded the rights of all citizens. Nobody was surprised when Congressional leaders, rather than express the outrage at the government blanket surveillance Edward Snowden revealed, called for that hero’s head.

This fortnight of outrageous malfeasance saw the Supreme Court (the supposed “protector” of the Constitution) trash the rights of voters and spit at the entire history of the Civil Rights movement (and its achievements) by calling sections of the Voter Rights law unconstitutional, using the brazenly disdainful argument that racial discrimination is no longer a major factor in voter rights denial. As if on cue (because it probably was), several state legislatures moved on measures to make it harder for people of color to vote.

Finally, it was revealed that the Post Office (the one government agency everyone seemed to trust) was taking and storing a snapshot of the intended and return address of every single piece of mail it handles as part of the government’s surveillance program. Those who eschew email, claiming that “snail mail” is slower but more secure, can’t even make that argument anymore.

This three week spurt of repressive action is the destructive icing on a cake of years of neglect and sadistic myopia that has ignored the country’s joblessness, alienation of its youth, continuing erosion of women’s rights, escalating violence, increasingly blatant racism and demonization of its working people and their right to self-protection and the militarization of the police. The Congress, with the acquiesence of the Administration, refuses to launch a major public works program that might at least stem our social collapse if not reverse it and then actually attacks the rights of elders and seniors to retrieve the social security we have paid into. In a vicious version of a comedy skit, the Congress has tried 37 times to repeal the only health coverage program all citizens have ever had — before it comes into effect. They cite the need to cut spending while they continue waste 50 cents of every tax dollar on the military, a tax-funded “social works program” that lacks the social productivity and usefulness of most other works programs and actually makes killing easier and more alluring.

All the while, the government’s cozy relationship with the mainstream media means that we can’t expect any decent information from that institution.

Our government isn’t representing us. The Constitution is effectively being ignored. We are in big trouble and the criminal behavior of our “leaders” isn’t going to save us.

All of this has gone on with very little popular resistance. So when Jay-Z “dropped” his album using a phone App that actually enhanced the intrusiveness cell phone companies have become infamous for, it’s not surprising that many didn’t care. But it’s noteworthy that many did. Polls are showing that, contrary to what pols and pundits protest, citizens in this country are very concerned about this surveillance. It may be that these latest surveillance revelations, painting a picture of a society that makes “Big Brother” look like a younger sibling, have brought us to some kind of critical mass.

One indicator of popular consciousness is the progressive movement that is usually “out in front” of the majority of people on most issues — that is, after all, its function. For years now, some Internet activists have been screaming about the movement’s ignoring of surveillance as an issue and its blind-faith use of the kind of software (including Google’s nefarious Gmail) that facilitate that surveillance. In the past two weeks, I’ve participated in general issue (not technology-specific) movement conferences that have suddenly and dramatically put the surveillance and privacy issue at the top of the agenda. I have three more conferences on my agenda this Summer and all have given the surveillance issue the same treatment.

The subject of those conference discussions is “what do we do?”. That’s a sign that people are going to start organizing around the issue. When they do, they will be faced with a question: can we really “petition” our government on this grievance as the Constitution allows us to? Can we seriously expect that government to do a damned thing about it? And what do we do with a government that refuses to listen or serve us or protect us? Can we seriously protection of people and respect for the law from a criminal enterprise?

Those questions, as they say, are now open for discussion. For starters, maybe we can all make a pledge to search out software that doesn’t spy on us from organizations that don’t conspire with a government that is breaking the laws designed to protect us.

One thought on “Jay-Z’s App and Obama’s Criminal Enterprise

  1. IS obama THE RIDICULOUS PUPPET OF JACOB ROTHSCHILD, BENJAMIN DE ROTHSCHILD, ARIANE DE ROTHSCHILD AND EVELYN DE ROTHSCHILD ?

    ” LaRouche: Behind The Shutdown & Debt Ceiling Swindle Wall St. Orders Obama To Kill Glass-Steagall

    PDF leaflet available here. http://larouchepac.com/node/28432

    Wall Street had demanded that President Barack Obama stop the reinstatement of Glass Steagall at all costs and instead move ahead with more bailouts and bail-in looting of the American people to preserve their thoroughly bankrupt system. The Wall Street policy means an acceleration of crippling hyperinflation, devastating austerity and, ultimately, mass murder of the nation’s most vulnerable citizens.
    Several highly qualified Washington sources have confirmed that this was the ultimatum delivered by the Wall Street delegation that met privately with Obama on Wednesday afternoon Oct. 2 at the White House. The delegation was organized by the Financial Services Forum, a coalition of the nation’s 19 biggest banks and insurance companies, and included Jamie Dimon, CEO of JPMorgan Chase; Lloyd Blankfein, CEO of Goldman Sachs; Brian Moynihan, CEO of Bank of America; Michael Corbat, CEO of Citibank; and Anshu Jain, CEO of Deutsche Bank.
    IMF Managing Director Christine Lagarde delivered the same message in an interview with the Financial Times on Oct. 4, in which she demanded that the Federal Reserve maintain the $85 billion a month quantitative easing bailout of the top Wall Street and Europe banks indefinitely. And Treasury Secretary Jack Lew, speaking for Obama, threatened that any U.S. default will trigger a financial crisis far worse than the September 2008 meltdown.
    The reality, as bluntly stated by Lyndon LaRouche today, is that the ongoing government shutdown and threatened default on U.S. sovereign debt on Oct. 17 is nothing more than an orchestrated swindle, aimed at conditioning the American people for the murderous policies that have already been accepted by Obama and by leading Congressional Republicans.
    LaRouche warned: “Unless Glass Steagall is passed into law immediately, Obama and Wall Street plan to unleash the worst mass murder austerity and looting of the American people ever. The total separation of commercial banking from all the gambling activities under Glass Steagall is the only remedy. Bankrupt Wall Street now, before they can unleash their genocidal schemes full-force. President Obama is nothing but a tool of these Wall Street interests, as evidenced by his slavish commitment to maintain the bailout/bail-in program and stop Glass Steagall.”
    LaRouche continued: “In a matter of days or weeks, Obama and his Congressional Republican cohorts, on orders from Wall Street, are going to unleash absolute Hell on the American public through even deeper killer austerity cuts than the sequestration of the past months. The government shutdown is the biggest dog and pony show ever, intended to prepare the population to accept more hyperinflation, more bailouts and bail-ins, and worsening conditions so that Wall Street can survive a bit longer while honest, hard-working Americans die in ever greater numbers.
    “It is time for Congress to break from Wall Street and the bankers stooge in the White House, and do the only thing that can set the United States back on a course of genuine prosperity: Pass Glass Steagall by a veto-proof majority this week.”
    “By passing Glass Steagall, the vise-grip of Wall Street is immediately broken. Once the too-big-to-fail banks are no longer kept alive by tax-payers bailouts and depositor bail-ins, they go under. Good riddance! We are then left with a viable but undercapitalized commercial banking system and with an immediate opportunity to revive Federal government credit to launch great economic projects like NAWAPA and an Apollo-style crash international program for commercial thermonuclear fusion energy.”
    “The moment of truth has arrived,” LaRouche concluded, “and I call on the American people to demand that Congress stop behaving like a bunch of corrupt fools, going along with the Wall Street Obama swindle. Pass Glass Steagall, wipe out the power of Wall Street and their European allies, and get on with the business of reviving this nation and the world around a plan of genuine development, as my colleagues and I have spelled out.” ” http://larouchepac.com/node/28430 http://larouchepac.com/node/28498

    ” PLANS FOR DICTATORSHIP
    by Nancy Spannaus

    In a commentary called “Bloomberg View,” entitled “Default or Breakdown,” the Bloomberg wire service implicitly encouraged President Obama to impose a dictatorship, if he cannot bend Congress to his will.
    http://www.sltrib.com/sltrib/opinion/56989061-82/boehner-debt-default-bloomberg.html.csp
    This is not a party conflict, the author said. “Without a long-term agreement between the antagonists—a proposed six-week reprieve from the debt ceiling would merely postpone the endgame—President Barack Obama may soon face a choice between safeguarding democratic governance on the one hand and protecting financial stability on the other. If this budding, bumbling crisis comes to that, disaster is all but guaranteed.”
    The argument precisely mirrors that being used in Europe, to impose technocratic governments to “save the euro,” and the argument for “emergency rule” demanded by fascists in the tradition of Hitler’s legal guru Carl Schmitt, et al.
    Bloomberg also has the precedent of Hitler in mind. In an article printed on Monday, under the title “U.S. May Join Germany of 1933 in Pantheon of Defaults,” author John Glover claims that the U.S. would be the first major Western government since Hitler to default. http://www.bloomberg.com/news/2013-10-13/u-s-risks-joining-1933-germany-in-pantheon-of-deadbeat-defaults.html
    They note that Hitler’s default on the Versailles debts in May 1933, “helped cement [his] power base following years of political instability.”
    Do Obama’s controllers have this precedent in mind for him? That can’t be ruled out—but must be stopped. ” http://larouchepac.com/node/28548

    4) ” WHILE OBAMACARE KILLS, IT WILDLY ENRICHES THE INSURANCE CONGLOMERATES — AS INTENDED

    Two-thirds of the poor blacks and single mothers in the United States, and more half of the low-wage workers without health insurance, will be DENIED any support for their health care under Obama’s “Affordable Care Act,” even while the cost of the coverage available to them increases drastically. A New York Times analysis of census data shows that the 26 states which chose not to expand Medicaid (a choice left to the states under Obamacare), comprise half the nation’s population but 68% of the poor, uninsured blacks and single mothers, who will not be eligible for coverage under the killer scheme.
    The study estimates that eight million Americans are “impoverished, uninsured, and ineligible for help.”
    The study did not even count the huge undocumented immigrant population.
    It is no surprise that the winners in the Obamacare game are from Wall Street’s big insurers. This is inherent in the fascist (corporatist) nature of the plan, which unites the health insurance cartels with the government, in a drive to cut back health care for the “useless eaters” in the population.
    Robert Lenzner of Forbes reported Oct. 1 that the “value of the S&P health insurance index gained 43%” this year alone. CIGNA is up 63%; Wellpoint 47%; and United Healthcare 28%. Since the passage of Obamacare in 2010, the stock values of these big firms have risen 200-300%!
    United Healthcare, the largest insurer, with about 70 million insured, reported last summer that they had a particularly strong past year, with net income of $5.1 billion, up by 11% from the previous year; similarly for the others — even before the bonanza to result from the corporatist plan to force every American to buy their inflated products, beginning on October 1.
    United Healthcare, it should be recalled, has as a top executive Simon Stevens, who was Tony Blair’s health policy advisor and the architect of NICE (National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence) in 1999, the “reform” of the British National Health Service which imposed triage and genocide on the British people through selective denial of cancer drugs, surgeries, kidney dialysis, and other treatments. This was the model for the IPAB (Independent Payment Advisory Board), which is now the law of the land under Obamacare. Genocide can be profitable. ” http://larouchepac.com/node/28409
