I, the author of the blog known as Mike The Goat and identified by
ownership of the private key of B7A04065 categorically state under
penalty of perjury, that I am not an employee of any United States
government organization including but not limited to the FBI, NSA,
CIA or ATF. Furthermore I declare that I am not an employee of a
state government, nor am I an employee, member or volunteer of any
law enforcement agency both in the United States and abroad.

As at 06:38 PDT (2338Z) on Monday the 12th of May I have received
no communications from any government agency invoking FISA or
similar provisions to compel both my cooperation and my silence by
prohibiting discussion of the order and its content.

While I understand that the aforementioned legislation, despite it
being blatanly unconstitutional can be used to 'gag' those named
within, I will not sign any declaration if any of the information
contained within it is not truthful or misleading. I will comply
with this even if it ultimately results in the contravention of a
court (an illegal and unconstitional one at that) order.

As I write this declaration the DAX is at 9,672.81 with Au and Ag
at 1291.1 and 19.550 respectively. Reuters headlines include
"Franco-German show of unity masks policy divide" while the front
page of USA Today's website reads "Report: New video shows missing
Nigeria schoolgirls." Bloomberg reports "Russia Hails Local Votes
to Split From Ukraine as EU Imposes Sanctions." This information
is appended to each declaration to prove that this text really was
composed and digitally signed on the date declared to eliminate
the possibility that the declarations were signed en masse at an
earlier date. More information is available on my blog.

  1. The bit about ‘under penalty of perjury’ is legally meaningless verbiage, I’m afraid; you’re not in a court under oath here, nor is there any law that would require TLA employees to honestly identify themselves as such, so you are in fact entirely free to lie your face off without any kind of legal liability. Who on earth do you imagine would prosecute you if you weren’t telling the truth here, and under what statute? You might as well remove it.

    • You’re probably right and IANAL. That said, the canary still serves a purpose. In the event I received an NSL I would cease updating this blog, even if threatened with legal action.

      • Fair enough; for your purposes I guess it doesn’t really matter what the text says.
