Global Privacy Has Been Made Obsolete

NSAhal

A massive new NSA data centre in Utah will begin collecting electronic information from citizens all around the world, regardless of the country they reside in.

The facility, code name “Bumblehive”, is 1.5-million-square-ft, has cost almost $2-billion and can store 1 trillion terabytes of information, creating the largest spy centre known to man.

The NSA plans to collect electronic information, everything from emails to cellphone records and even purchasing receipts from all over the world. They will store the information to identify threatening patterns, they claim.

The data centre is able to capture all forms of communication, including the complete contents of private emails, cell phone calls and Internet searches, as well as all sorts of personal data trails—parking receipts, travel itineraries, bookstore purchases, and other digital “pocket litter”, though its precise purpose is secret.

In 2012 Wired reported that the data centre is:

In essence, like a cloud, a digital cloud, so that agency employees, analysts from around the country at NSA headquarters and their listening posts in different parts of the U.S.
The NSA is much different from the CIA. First of all, it’s about three times the size. It costs far more. It’s tremendously more secret than the CIA. And what it does is very different. It’s focused on eavesdropping, on tapping into major communications links, on listening to what people around the world and, to some degree, in the United States say on telephones, email, communications . . . And NSA is really the most powerful intelligence agency, not only in the U.S., but in the world today.

Liberty Reserve, “Bank of Choice for the Criminal Underworld”

crimescenebank

Another day, another alleged fraud. But this one—brought to light by the federal indictment of Liberty Reserve, which prosecutors said was one of the world’s largest online money operations—sounded a little bit too familiar.
According to the charges, the operators of Liberty Reserve constructed an extremely complex international network for financial transactions that allowed its customers to transmit vast sums of money around the globe, all while operating under layers of anonymity. As a result, the indictment says, “Liberty Reserve was in fact used extensively for illegal purposes, functioning in effect as the bank of choice for the criminal underworld.”

If that rings a bell for any of you fraud aficionados, think back to 1991 and the virtual financial explosion of a shadowy international institution called the Bank of Credit and Commerce International, best known as B.C.C.I.<em>(which was a cover for C.I.A covert operations, and funding of terrorism) While the two scandals have their differences, in both instances—if the charges against Liberty Reserve are true—the companies established virtual international spiderwebs of financial links, giving both the ability to avoid effective regulation of their operations.

The alleged crimes of Liberty Reserve, as described in the indictment: “The company grew into a financial hub of the cybercrime world, facilitating a broad range of online criminal activity.” B.C.C.I., from the Senate report: “(The principals) developed in BCCI an ideal mechanism for facilitating illicit activity by others.” Many of the specific crimes described are identical: money laundering, investment fraud, narcotics trafficking, and the like. Each had alleged crimes that are not mentioned in the other case.

World Bank Insider Tells of Corruption, Cabals and the Federal Reserve

Centralbankcontrol

A former insider at the World Bank, ex-Senior Counsel Karen Hudes, says the global financial system is dominated by a small group of corrupt, power-hungry figures centered around the privately owned U.S. Federal Reserve. The network has seized control of the media to cover up its crimes, too, she explained.

In an interview with The New American, Hudes said that when she tried to blow the whistle on multiple problems at the World Bank, she was fired for her efforts.

Citing an explosive 2011 Swiss study published in the PLOS ONE journal on the “network of global corporate control,” Hudes pointed out that a small group of entities — mostly financial institutions and especially central banks — exert a massive amount of influence over the international economy from behind the scenes. “What is really going on is that the world’s resources are being dominated by this group,”

At the heart of the network, Hudes said, are 147 financial institutions and central banks — especially the Federal Reserve, which was created by Congress but is owned by essentially a cartel of private banks. “This is a story about how the international financial system was secretly gamed, mostly by central banks — they’re the ones we are talking about,” she explained. “The central bankers have been gaming the system. I would say that this is a power grab.”

The Fed in particular is at the very center of the network and the coverup, Hudes continued, citing a policy and oversight body that includes top government and Fed officials. Central bankers have also been manipulating gold prices, she added, echoing widespread concerns that The New American has documented extensively. Indeed, even the inaccurate World Bank financial statements that Hudes has been trying to expose are linked to the U.S. central bank

“This is like crooks trying to figure out where they can go hide. It’s a mafia,” she said. “These culprits that have grabbed all this economic power have succeeded in infiltrating both sides of the issue, so you will find people who are supposedly trying to fight corruption who are just there to spread disinformation and as a placeholder to trip up anybody who manages to get their act together

US spy device ‘tested on New Zeland public’

thinthreadspy

A high-tech United States surveillance tool which sweeps up all communications without a warrant was sent to New Zealand for testing on the public, according to an espionage expert.

The tool was called ThinThread and it worked by automatically intercepting phone, email and internet information. (Again another example of what may be alterations, or advanced versions of the PROMIS spying software, which was stolen by the US DOJ and marketed to spy on multiple countries)

ThinThread was highly valued by those who created it because it could handle massive amounts of intercepted information. It then used snippets of data to automatically build a detailed picture of targets, their contacts and their habits for the spy organisation using it.

Those organisations were likely to include the Government Communications Security Bureau (GCSB) after Washington, DC-based author Tim Shorrock revealed ThinThread was sent to New Zealand for testing in 2000-2001. Mr Shorrock, who has written on intelligence issues for 35 years, said the revolutionary ThinThread surveillance tool was sent to New Zealand by the US National Security Agency. The GCSB is the US agency’s intelligence partner – currently under pressure for potentially illegal wide-spread spying on the public.

*This is not the first time US intelligence agencies have operated and spied on citizens in this part of the world, Regime change is’nt a new thing for them, and if you dont play by the rules,.. well bad things happen*

Seattle Police Deploy Crime Prediction Software

predpol

*Pre-Crime Technology currently being employed in another Major city*

After initial testing in two precincts, The Seattle Police Department and Mayor Mike McGinn announced last week that they will now deploy their “Predictive Policing” software to all five precincts.

The federally-funded cloud-based crime prediction software known as PREDPOL(sounds pretty close to PROMIS in name and function), uses mathematical algorithms similar to ones used in earthquake prediction to predict when and where a future crime is most likely to take place down to a 500-square foot area. The program combines five years’ worth of past crime data with sociological information about criminal behavior.

Database Your Face: Drones to Employ Facial Recognition, Ending Anonymity

Facerecogdrone

In a matter of just a few years, we have gone from drones in American skies being a conspiracy theory, to drones being openly debated by Congress for full deployment over the U.S. by 2015. However, you know things have gone to a new level when establishment media begins covering the full range of privacy-ending capabilities employed by drones matched with biometric databases … inside America.

A recent Associated Press article, reposted at major corporate media sites such as Business Insider, surprisingly grasps the near totality of what is being planned in much the same way as we have been covering in the alternative media for some time.

Entitled, “Drones With Facial Recognition Technology Will End Anonymity, Everywhere,” we are presented with this news as a statement, not a question.
The AP is in fact a bit behind the curve to suggest that the capabilities they highlight, are “to be sure … in its infancy” when documents obtained by the Electronic Privacy Information Center (EPIC) which reveal that the Bureau of Customs and Border Protection is already operating drones in the United States capable of recognizing a person on the ground. Or how about the fact that drones can already see inside your bedroom? Wired’s Danger Room reported back in 2011 that not only were drones with facial recognition in development, but also algorithms that could predict behavior.

Rather, what we are witnessing with this news from AP is the mainstream rollout and conditioning of the public to what is already here and what is about to become even more pervasive. where we once thought our personal information was protected, will be opened and utilized any time necessary.

“From seeing just the image of a face, computers will find its match in a database of millions of driver’s license portraits and photos on social media sites. From there, the computer will link to the person’s name and details such as their Social Security number, preferences, hobbies, family and friends”.

“Adding that capability to drones that can fly into spaces where planes cannot — machines that can track a person moving about and can stay aloft for days — means that people will give up privacy as well as the concept of anonymity”.

Who Really Runs the World? Hidden Agendas & the Plan for World Government

elitehands

So, who runs the world? It’s a question that people have struggled with since people began to struggle. Often, it is relegated to the realm of “conspiracy theory,” in that, those who discuss this question or propose answers to it, are purveyors of a conspiratorial view of the world.
What is intend is to analyse the social structure of the transnational ruling class, the international elite, who together run the world. This is not a conspiratorial opinion piece, but is an examination of the socially constructed elite class of people; what is the nature of power, how does it get used, and who holds it?

A Historical Understanding of Power:

The greatest position of power within the global capitalist system lies in the authority of money-creation: the central banking system. The central banking system,(officially) originating in 1694 in England, consists of an international network of central banks that are privately owned by wealthy shareholders and are granted governmental authority to print and issue a nation’s currency, and set interest rates, collecting revenue and making profit through the interest charged.(The first central banking cartel was actually the Knights Templar) Central banks give loans to both governments and industries, controlling both simultaneously. The ultimate centre of power in the central banking system is at the Bank for International Settlements (BIS), in Basle, Switzerland; which is the central bank to the world’s central banks, and is also a private bank owned by the world’s central banks. Georgetown University history professor Carroll Quigley wrote:

[T]he powers of financial capitalism had another far-reaching aim, nothing less than to create a world system of financial control in private hands able to dominate the political system of each country and the economy of the world as a whole. This system was to be controlled in a feudalist fashion by the central banks of the world acting in concert, by secret agreements arrived at in frequent private meetings and conferences.

The central banks, and thus the central banking system as a whole, is a privately owned system in which the major shareholders are powerful international banking houses.

Constructing a Ruling Class: Rise of the Think Tanks:

The top think tanks in the United States include the Council on Foreign Relations, (which was put at number 2, however, should be placed at the number 1 spot), the Brookings Institution, (which was inaccurately given the position of number one), the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace, RAND Corporation, Heritage Foundation, Woodrow Wilson International Centre for Scholars, the Center for Strategic and International Studies, and the American Enterprise Institute, among others.

In 1954, the Bilderberg Group was founded in the Netherlands. Every year since then the group holds a secretive meeting, drawing roughly 130 of the political-financial-military-academic-media elites from North America and Western Europe.Regular participants include the CEOs or Chairmen of some of the largest corporations in the world, oil companies such as Royal Dutch Shell, British Petroleum, and Total SA, as well as various European monarchs, international bankers such as David Rockefeller, major politicians, presidents, prime ministers, and central bankers of the world. These think tanks have effectively socially constructed an ideologically cohesive ruling class in each nation and fostered the expansion of international ideological alignment among national elites, allowing for the development of a transnational ruling class sharing a dominant ideology.

Tele-Mantra Portals to the Mind

tvportal

By Azartush Najjarian

Our minds are being relentlessly subjected to a type of macabre programming, and most of us do not even realize it.

Psychological programming could be defined as the ability to change or program a person to carry out a particular “action” or believe in a specific “agenda” without consciously being aware of the psychological and physical change she or he has received. It is a psychological programming or shall we say psychological warfare, which is being carried out against the human psyche and human species. It is a manipulation or rather obscure distortion of what we perceive to be reality.

Some techniques used in this form of programming are utilized to their full potential in the Western media. We see a woman in hijab (Islamic headscarf) on TV and automatically we see a bomb going off afterwards. We see Muslims praying and then another violent sequence of clips. Thus, we are being conditioned to create associate Muslims and Islam with terrorism. The elite illusionists use the TV as a technological talisman of black magic.

We can refer to the culprits as the elite for simplicity’s sake. Moreover, they are illusion creators and hold high positions in the hierarchy of darkness and death.The global elite have been pulling our strings since antiquity. They cannot put all of us in concentration camps physically, hence the next most powerful form of imprisonment is within the mind. Once a man said there is no right or wrong, there is only popular opinion.

The most awesome example of this psychological programming is the series of post-9/11 wars. 9/11 itself is the epitome of a black magic sacrificial operation. A new society was created and a new agenda. The changes were justified by the term forged by former U.S. President George W. Bush: “The War on Terror.”” The surveillance society was created and the passing of new legislation brought about the erosion of freedoms and liberties for U.S. citizens.

The final goal will bring about a society where we are tracked like sheep with implantable chips and monitored constantly. Even the term “thought police” has arisen. You are not safe to think or challenge this shadow government and its objectives. People are being arrested and assaulted for protesting in the U.S. Americans and other Westerners alike must eventually come to realize that the main threat and real terror is this shadow government Eisenhower warned us about in his farewell speech and the elite families of internationalist bankers

Humans With Amplified Intelligence Could Be More Powerful Than AI

amplifiedhuman

With much of our attention focused the rise of advanced artificial intelligence, few consider the potential for radically amplified human intelligence (IA). It’s an open question as to which will come first, but a technologically boosted brain could be just as powerful — and just as dangerous – as AI.

Unlike efforts to develop artificial general intelligence (AGI), or even an artificial superintelligence (SAI), the human brain already presents us with a pre-existing intelligence to work with. Radically extending the abilities of a pre-existing human mind — whether it be through genetics, cybernetics or the integration of external devices — could result in something quite similar to how we envision advanced AI.

Expounding more upon this is the following interview with futurist Michael Anissimov:

When we speak of Intelligence Amplification, what are we really talking about? Are we looking to create Einsteins? Or is it something significantly more profound?

The real objective of IA is to create super-Einsteins, persons qualitatively smarter than any human being that has ever lived. There will be a number of steps on the way there.
The first step will be to create a direct neural link to information. Think of it as a “telepathic Google.” The next step will be to develop brain-computer interfaces that augment the visual cortex, the best-understood part of the brain. This would boost our spatial visualization and manipulation capabilities.
The third step involves the genuine augmentation of pre-frontal cortex. This is the Holy Grail of IA research — enhancing the way we combine perceptual data to form concepts. The end result would be cognitive super-McGyvers, people who perform apparently impossible intellectual feats. For instance, mind controlling other people, beating the stock market, or designing inventions that change the world almost overnight.

Does IA have the potential to be safer than AI as far as predictability and controllability is concerned? Is it important that we develop IA before super-powerful Artificial General Intelligence?

Intelligence Augmentation is much more unpredictable and uncontrollable than AGI has the potential to be. It’s actually quite dangerous, in the long term. I recently wrote an article that speculates on global political transformation caused by a large amount of power concentrated in the hands of a small group due to “miracle technologies” like IA or molecular manufacturing. The problem with IA is that you are dealing with human beings, and human beings are flawed. People with enhanced intelligence could still have a merely human-level morality, leveraging their vast intellects for hedonistic or even genocidal purposes.
