The Government “Quite Literally Can Watch Your Ideas Form As You Type”

Our Own Government Is Spying On Everything We Do Online

The Washington Post and Guardian report today that the NSA is tapping directly into the central servers of 9 leading U.S. Internet companies – including Microsoft, Yahoo, Google, Facebook, PalTalk, AOL, Skype, YouTube, Apple .. and soon Dropbox – and extracting audio, video, photographs, e-mails, documents and connection logs that enable analysts to track a person’s movements and contacts over time.

The Post reports:

Firsthand experience with these systems, and horror at their capabilities, is what drove a career intelligence officer to provide PowerPoint slides about PRISM and supporting materials to The Washington Post in order to expose what he believes to be a gross intrusion on privacy. “They quite literally can watch your ideas form as you type,” the officer said.

See this for exhaustive background about the pervasive spying on Americans by our own government.

    They’re not just listening. They are advancing the sites and careers of online advocates of the sort of muddleheadedness they want to develop in the alternative media.

    So, when you read about the commonly accepted norm being espoused here and elsewhere online, things like chem trails and Morgellon’s disease, understand, the hand of manipulation reaches very deep in this country.

    The hand of manipulation has always reached very deep in this country. It started in Hollywood. And then it moved to education at every level. And now, the government is controlling the popular culture with the alternative media.

    How many “likes” does it take to make something like Bitcoin, Arab Spring, or “public banking” go viral?

    Ask the government. They’re sitting back controlling it all. They have climate control machines, invisibility cloaks, and earthquake machines too! And just recently, we all read it, the government scientists have ripped a hole in time for all you dummies… Cuckoo! Cuckoo! Cuckoo!

      When one thinks their reality is the same as another, one trips upon their own self deception. You cannot make the quantitative or qualitative judgement about others experiences because you have not come out of your shoes in order to stand in theirs. I mean you are so protective of your damn shoes, it’s like you have a foot fetish. One must listen, read, educate in order to know the truth if one does not possess an innate knowing. Don’t be satisfied by the salt on the rim of the glass when the Tequila waits down below….

    I can’t wait until Aliens attack earth and government chooses a real enemy instead of It’s own people.

      Have you read Dr Judy Wood on 911?

    The question is: Why are they going through all of this effort to turn the US into a police state?

      This has nothing to do with homeland security or fighting crime. Trust me there. This is a move meant to re-hypothecate covert access tentacles that reach into existing black pools of liquid money that individual government spooks can tap into. It’s like the CIA selling dope. They do it worldwide for the money. Individuals within the spook business, do it to advance the cuase of their own greed. There’s no other reason to sell dope. Dope is sold to at-risk youth who ruin their lives for cheap thrills. There’s nothing cool about doing dope. There’s no end-game involved in shooting heroin that was imported into this country in the coffins of dead American soldiers from Indochina or from Afghanistan. It’s just about the money. There’s no grand scheme in controlling the dope trade. There’s no grand scheme in tapping everyone’s phone in the country either. It’s about money.

      Now with universal wire-tapping going on 24/7 the spooks can perform espionage for better information about where and when they can make a killing in this or that marketplace. It’s profitably-nice to know when a company is going to miss or beat its earnings estimates big-time -well in advance. But that’s just one sort of phone-tapping nicety. Tapping phones delivers all sorts of information to anyone who asks for it. And there are plenty of people in government who are asking for this sort of information. And they’ll pay handsomely for the information, once it’s been gathered. There’s a -quid pro quo- about not blowing the whistle on what government is doing to steal more for themselves. I hope you all noticed that on your own. No Senator’s son is blowing the whistle about the insider tips he’s been getting! LoL

      In other words, it’s far more likely these government eves-droppers are listening into what Bill Gates and Lloyd Blankfein are saying, than that they are listening in to what the next Tim McVeigh or Ted Kasinski are saying. Hell, there’s a bunch of huge government contracts coming for every building the “terrorists” knock down! That’s an opportunity for someone in government to make big money! Stopping the “terrorist” would be stupid then, wouldn’t it.

      These people know they can make money if they have advance knowledge concerning what Bill Gates and Lloyd Blankfein are doing. Tim McVeigh and Ted Kasinski are just a one-shot opportunities to make money with advance knowledge, chump change -if you will.

      The “free” market is not the “fair” market. Get it? There’s nothing fair about accumulating great wealth. Accumulating great wealth takes insider information, lots of it, insider information that nobody else has access to. Don’t be stupid, if that is what you are thinking, that there is some noble goal in tapping the phones worldwide. LoL There’s a patriotic fool born every minute, isn’t there.

        I’m likely guilty as charged regarding the fool part, but I’m not sure how patriotic it is for a government to gear up for war on its own citizens.

    Here are two bits of information for the blog. Love it. You people have been so good to me tolerating my different opinions!


    2) and, if you didn’t know it, today is take-down day. You’re not paying attention, if you didn’t see this one coming.

    The Government has nullified all “hacking” laws. If you do not have 4th Amendment protection and “Expectation of privacy” on the internet, then ANYONE can search, download, inspect, ANYTHING. The internet must be considered “abandoned/discarded property” available to whoever wants it.
    They have also nullified all “phone tapping” laws for the same reason.
