Operation TIPS (Stasi)
U.S. Citizen Spy Program


Stasi -- the website
Now Coming to U.S.

"A national system for
concerned workers to report
suspicious activity."

Operation TIPS
Terrorism Information and Prevention System

"Operation TIPS, administered by the U.S. Department of Justice and developed in partnership with several other federal agencies, is one of the five component programs of the Citizen Corps. Operation TIPS will be a national system for reporting suspicious, and potentially terrorist-related activity. The program will involve the millions of American workers who, in the daily course of their work, are in a unique position to see potentially unusual or suspicious activity in public places."

Re: (tattle-tale force)

This has to be one of the most Orwellian initiatives to come along.

Maybe we can help by joining ourselves and turning in all the government officials who are abandoning the constitution, and have them barred from office.

Bush Aims To Recruit 1 in 24 Americans
As Citizen Spies/Informants
By Ritt Goldstein, (July 15, 2002) [back-up at]
The Bush Administration aims to recruit millions of United States citizens as domestic informants in a program likely to alarm civil liberties groups. The Terrorism Information and Prevention System, or TIPS, means the US will have a higher percentage of citizen informants than the former East Germany through the infamous Stasi secret police. The program would use a minimum of 4 per cent of Americans to report "suspicious activity".
