(FoxNews) “The spy center” — that’s what some of the locals like Jasmine Widmer, who works at Bluffdale’s sandwich shop, told our Fox News team as part of an eight month investigation into data collection and privacy rights that will be broadcast Sunday at 9 p.m. ET called “Fox News Reporting: Your Secrets Out.”
The NSA says the Utah Data Center is a facility for the intelligence community that will have a major focus on cyber security. The agency will neither confirm nor deny specifics. Some published reports suggest it could hold 5 zettabytes of data. (Just one zettabyte is the equivalent of about 62 billion stacked iPhones 5′s– that stretches past the moon.
ne man we hoped would answer our questions, the current director of the NSA General Keith Alexander, declined Fox News’s requests to sit down for an interview, so we stopped by the offices of a Washington think tank, where Alexander was speaking at a cyber security event last year.

(CWNews) President Barack Obama won re-election in spite of HIGH GAS PRICES. The liberal mainstream media has not made any issue out of the high gas prices problem, in spite of these prices STILL being higher than they were when Obama took office in 2009.
Nevertheless, mainstream America knows and feels it. The Obama energy policy is troubling the American people. Obama’s waffling on the Keystone XL pipeline is a deliberate attempt to hurt our nation.
High gas prices are troubling because they cause food prices to rise. High energy prices are what Barack Obama is all about. Remember what he said about coal: “…under my plan for cap and trade… electricity prices will “necessarily” skyrocket…” America gets it. This president does not want to do good things for this country.
(FoxNews-ap) House Republicans unveiled an ambitious cost-cutting plan Tuesday that would balance the budget in 10 years without raising taxes, while repealing ObamaCare and overhauling entitlements — a document Democrats are sure to reject but could be used as a negotiating tool in talks with President Obama.
Rep. Paul Ryan, R-Wis., chairman of the House Budget Committee, is sticking by controversial proposals, including one to give future Medicare retirees the option of using government payments for private health care plans.
The plan warns of a looming debt crisis, and endeavors to pay off the debt by 2050. “We are addressing the most predictable debt crisis in this country’s history,” Ryan said Tuesday. “Our plan will balance the budget and pay off our debts.”
(Newsmax.com) WASHINGTON — A new State Department report is the latest evidence that the long-delayed Keystone XL oil pipeline from Canada should be approved, supporters say.
The draft report, issued Friday, finds there would be no significant environmental impact to most resources along the proposed route from western Canada to refineries in Texas. The report also said other options to get the oil from Canada to Gulf Coast refineries are worse for climate change.
The new report “again makes clear there is no reason for this critical pipeline to be blocked one more day,” said House Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio. After four years of what he called “needless delays,” Boehner said it is time for President Barack Obama “to stand up for middle-class jobs and energy security and approve the Keystone pipeline.”
