Snowden’s email service Lavabit consistently denied US govt access despite intimidation

The Federal Bureau of Investigation secretly obtained a court order compelling Lavabit, the email service used by National Security Agency whistleblower Edward Snowden, to hand over its private SSL key, thereby allowing the FBI to monitor Lavabit's users.
The FBI order was handed down on July 16, according to Wired, shortly after Lavabit refused to bypass the company’s internal security systems to facilitate a government request asking the email provider to trace the internet IP address of an individual user. 
Government documents indicate that the FBI sent Lavabit a so-called “pen register” order on June 28, forcing the Texas-based company to record the connection information belonging to a particular user each time that user logged in to check his or her email. Lavabit was then required to turn that data over to the government. 
The pen register came down just weeks after the first Snowden leaks were published in the Guardian and The Washington Post. Among the unveiled programs was PRISM - a massive electronic data mining program employed to collect and store communication data extracted from internet companies including Google, Facebook, Microsoft, and others. 
While the identity of the FBI’s Lavabit target was not disclosed in the filings, the suspect is described as having committed violations under the Espionage Act, indicating with near certainty that Snowden was the motivating factor. 
The June 28 order, as seen by Wired, required Lavabit to turn over all “technical assistance necessary to accomplish the installation and use of the pen/trap device.”
When the company - which is now embroiled in a court battle with the government - refused to comply, authorities filed a motion to compel, saying the single user “enabled Lavabit’s encryption services, and this Lavabit would not provide the requested information.” 
The representative of Lavabit indicated that Lavabit had the technical capability to decrypt the information, but that Lavabit did not want to ‘defeat its own system,’” the order went on. 
Prosecutors soon asked that founder Ladar Levinson and Lavabit be held in contempt “for its disobedience and resistance to these lawful orders.” A search warrant was issued demanding “all information necessary to decrypt communications sent to or from the Lavabit email account [redacted] including encryption keys and SSL keys.” 

Levison


A search warrant and SSL key would grant the government unobstructed access to Lavabit’s servers, and a court informed Levinson that he would be fined $5,000 each day he refused to hand over the necessary information. 
I have been forced to make a difficult decision: to become complicit in crimes against the American people or walk away from nearly 10 years of hard work by shutting down Lavabit,” Levinson wrote on August 8. “After significant soul searching, I have decided to suspend operations.” 
Now embroiled in a costly legal battle, Levinson has already raised over $20,000 to pay the necessary legal fees. That makes up half of Levinson’s goal, he said, because unfortunately “defending the constitution is expensive.”
UPDATE: Lavabit has issued a statement in response to aforementioned revelations.  
"The vast majority of the court records in Lavabit LLC’s fight for internet privacy and security are now public. Although most of the documents have been redacted, 23 court orders, pleadings, and other documents are now available to the public while the case is on appeal in the Fourth Circuit.
Lavabit was created so every law-abiding citizen has access to a secure and private email service. During an investigation into several Lavabit user accounts, the federal government demanded both unfettered access to all user communications and a copy of the Lavabit encryption keys used to secure web, instant message and email traffic. After having a motion to quash the search warrant was denied by Judge Claude Hilton of the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Virginia. Notably Judge Hilton served on the FISA Court from 2000 through 2007. Judge Hilton subsequently issued a $5,000 per day contempt of court citation thus forcing Lavabit to surrender their encryption keys. Ladar Levison, the owner and operator of Lavabit, then made the difficult decision to suspend operations and “limit the damage to user’s 4th amendment right to privacy.”
The statement goes on to remind users and privacy advocates that by suspending operation, Levinson has come to rely on donations to fund the ongoing legal battle. It also describes how the new information about the NSA has led to a massive uptick in subscriptions. 
While catering to a niche market for most of it’s history, the recent revelations about American surveillance efforts caused what Mr. Levison describes as a “massive increase in user registrations, usage and revenue in our final month of operation.” When the service was suspended on August 8th, it boasted over 410,000 registered users, of which approximately 10,000 were paying $8 or $16 a year for premium features like encrypted storage."

So, was the issue Snowden had with NSA over the protection of emails between jews using this Israeali email service (by jews, for jews only)? 

Do jews as a whole reject NSA spying on their seditious activities, while having no problem with other forms of NSA spying?

The reason why Ron Paul never led to any positive change, is all based on the powers he serves...



Ron Paul Goes to Bat for Business Owner Who Stood Against NSA
By: Kevin Derby | Posted: September 27, 2013 10:09 AM
Former U.S. Rep. Ron Paul, best known for his three presidential bids, offered warm words of praise for Ladar Levison who shut down Lavabit instead of working with the National Security Agency (NSA).


“He's lost his main source of income. He's now effectively unemployed,” Paul wrote supporters on Thursday. “And now that his decision to shut down the secure email service Lavabit has created a media firestorm, Ladar Levison has become an even bigger target for our national security spy state.

“While tech companies like Google, Facebook, and others secretly hand over their users' information to government snoops, Ladar Levison is a true patriot who's proven he's willing to stand up and fight for our constitutional freedoms =- even when it's not easy,” Paul insisted. “Recently, Yahoo chief Marissa Mayer let it slip that when it comes to the NSA, ‘If you don't comply, it's treason.’”

Paul plans to go to bat for Levison, using a group he chairs to help him. “Ladar Levison is embroiled in a major legal fight, and -- he can't say -- my guess is he's experiencing very similar threats right now,” Paul wrote. “I've instructed Campaign for Liberty to aid his legal case in any way possible -- including financially. I believe Ladar's legal fight could have major legal ramifications down the road."


How does Ron Paul select his battles?

Unsealed docs show what really happened with Lavabit

Summary: Now that the court documents have been unsealed, there's no need to guess whether Lavabit shut down because of Edward Snowden.


By Michael Lee | October 3, 2013 -- 02:05 GMT (19:05 PDT)

In August, Lavabit, a secure email provider that happened to have whistleblower Edward Snowden as a customer, shut down in a cryptic manner. The company's owner and operator Ladar Levison bid the internet goodbye, saying that he had made the decision because it would otherwise mean becoming "complicit in crimes against the American people".
At the time, Levison said he wished that he could "legally share with you the events that led to my decision", but could not.
Many people, including ZDNet's Ed Bott, speculated that rather than allowing the US government to read Snowden's email, and thus compromise his business, Levison chose to shut it down.
Documents unsealed in Lavabit's appeal process against the US show that this was essentially the case, as the US government had ordered Lavabit to hand over its SSL keys.
The formerly sealed court order states: "The court determines that there is reason to believe that notification of the existence of this order will seriously jeopardize the ongoing investigation, including by giving targets an opportunity to flee or continue flight from prosecution, destroy, or tamper with evidence, change patterns of behavior, or notify confederates.
"It is further ordered that Lavabit LLC shall not disclose the existence of the application of the United States, or the existence of this order of the court ... to any other person, unless and until otherwise authorized to do so by the court."
Wired has the complete document set on its website, the first of which is dated June 10, 2013.
The documents show that the US government sought to force Lavabit to install a "pen register and the use of a trap and trace device" on a particular email account. The address is redacted in the documents, but it is believed to belong to Edward Snowden.
They also show that the FBI, which Levison was meant to assist, repeatedly visited him at his home. Levison did attempt to fight back in what little way he could, stating that he would refuse to turn up to court unless the government paid for his travel expenses. It did.
Levison later attempted to delay the process, stating that he could comply with the installation of the pen register, but only after 60 days and only if the government paid him $2,000 for "developmental time and equipment" and an additional $1,500 if the government wanted data more frequently than 60 days. He claimed that the cost of reissuing SSL certificates would be $2,000.
The SSL certificates are key to making any information useful. Levison appears to be aware of this, even conceding to the installation of the pen register device if he can get some of the documents unsealed and in front of the the public eye.
Levison's defence against handing over the SSL keys was that all of his customers' privacy will be affected if he did. The US government counter-argued that its collection of data is limited specifically to the email account in question due to the Wiretap Act and the Pen-Trap act.
The documents draw a parallel to an apartment building:
"Compelling the owner of an apartment building to unlock the building's front door so that agents can search one apartment is not a 'general search' of the entire apartment building — even if the building owner imagines that undisciplined agents will illegally kick down the doors to apartments not described in the warrant."
Though this may legally be the case, it would technically have enough information to examine any account.
Understanding that the US government is not taking no for an answer, Levison offered an alternative: Redeveloping his platform so that individual users are protected, even if he gives up his SSL keys, thus providing information on one account. He estimated that it will take 20 to 40 hours to do so.
This arrangement was refused by the US government, its legal counsel stating that "he's had every opportunity to propose solutions to come up with ways to address his concerns and he simply hasn't".
In a last-ditch effort, Levison gave the FBI a print-out of the encryption keys that it needed, but printed out over 11 pages in 4-point type, described by the court as "largely illegible". When this was not accepted, Levison was ordered to provide the keys on a CD and face fines of $5,000 per day.
Lavabit shut down two days later.

Analysis: FBI is colluding with Levison and jews to protect private emails between jews.  You have to wonder what info these emails contained...  It seems now, poof, we will never know.

Not sure why Snowden would use a US-based server for 'secrecy' unless, yeah, he felt it had special protected status. Wasn't he the guy who said NSA spies on everything?

He said what he said after he found out that his and fellow jews' Lavabit emails were accessed.  Just another jew flipping his lid over not feeling superior.

All these "secure" sites probably run by crooks fronting for public/private intel agencies. LavaBit/Levison pleading poverty but probably subsidized all along by MI6/Mossad/ADL etc.

It's pathetic to see the ineffectual Snowden worshippers in the pseudo-resistance (hipsters unwilling to put their asses on the line, spectator rebels) so knowingly and defiantly clueless on jews, and how obvious the Snowden story was as a jew media blitz. If 'hackers' and all the rest can't have sharp eyes for deeper politics (the reality on the ground, not the storyline 'Drudge Report' et al feeds them), what f**king good are they? That whole 'sector' needs a major wake-up call.

I'm still waiting for the Jewess Sybel Edmunds to blow the whistle on 9/11.

Ughh, worthless... I feel my brain go numb with these frauds -- it's like that's half their purpose

There are actual genuine people somewhere out there who posses priceless information, but these fakers seem to function as subtle/indirect barriers between real whistleblowers and the rest of us. Personality props are usually a dead giveaway that something's rotten in Denmark.

Levison looks the part, very little personal web info on him.  But now he has a "defense fund"!

I have got my stupid Occupier Friends telling me that this guy was a hero. Well he is in the sense that he believe in corporate costumer trust not a like big dude taking on the Gov't... But you gotta admit a company which stands up for it's costumers is  rarity in spit that it's costumers were Jews!    

But it is good for us because we now know the extent of the Gov't rotting and corruption... Jewish in fights are good to note because it tells us Jews are not a undivided mass and can be attacked if a few gentiles get into a large mass.

Flag to Vidarr because he knows of a Mass with Mass!

Sibel is a crypto yes, after I realized that I was of course more skeptical about her line. OTOH I later reviewed some of her writings & she does note various things about Israel, Turkey etc. I mean, she always talked Turkey (heh) so originally I thought it was just to put 9/11 blame on Muslims. But she details Sayanim-type connections between Israel & Turkish groups & how Feds didn't want to hear about that stuff.

Actually I sort of admire her for not trying to "theorize" too much about 9/11 since she, according to her, did not have unlimited access to intel.

Of course she still falls into pattern of Jewish "whistleblowers" who manage to escape prison.

Sibel was a total jew intel set-up, and that was obvious early on. What puzzled me for awhile was why Raimondo kept pushing her line even tough it was obvious she was a set-up like Snowden. Of course this was way back when I believed there was such a thing as rebel sites.

The number of jews on the Antiwar.com staff is a bit of an eye raiser, but I always thought Philip Giraldi had good info. He's the only writer who ever talked openly and warned about Israeli false flags back at that old outdated mag The American Conservative.

Edward Snowden (3rd R) receives the Sam Adams Associates for Integrity in Intelligence Award (SAAII) alongside UK WikiLeaks journalist Sarah Harrison (2nd R) who took Snowden from Hong Kong to Moscow and obtained his asylum and the United States government whistleblowers who presented the award (L-R) Coleen Rowley (FBI), Thomas Drake (NSA), Jesselyn Raddack (DoJ) and Ray McGovern (CIA) on October 9, 2013 in Moscow, Russia.(Photo: Sunshinepress, Getty Images)

Snowden is the setup .. telling us about all these privacy invasions which will eventually lead the blame to the thing that made it all possible "The Internet".

The internet can then be locked down to regulated channels as frightened "people" will trade the internet's freedom for a bit of "security".. or at least that's what they will tell us.. "it's the people's will"

Yes, Antiwar.com is part of the Lew Rockwell libertarian constellation, pretty much an all-Jew show. Taki Theodoracopulos (founder of AmCon mag) writes some interesting articles; not esp politically insightful but a rather unique cultural POV.
