In today’s world, the seeming safety and privacy provided by four walls and a roof is quickly diminishing with microchips enabling mobile devices to see through walls, microchips allowing mobile devices to provide ultra-precise location information, the hijacking of cell phone camerasand even stealthily recording sound and other environmental information, supposedly for advertising purposes.
Of course, those examples represent just one of the many ways in which our privacy is being invaded and diminished with a vengeance in the United States today.
Now new method is being explored by researchers which could allow people to use so-called “bistatic WiFi radar” at a distance in order to covertly detect and monitor people moving behind walls.
The researchers published the findings in a paper called “Through-the-Wall Sensing of Personnel Using Passive Bistatic WiFi Radar at Standoff Distances” in IEEE Transactions on Geoscience and Remote Sensing, volume 50, Issue 4.
The emphasis appears to be the ability to detect people “uncooperatively and covertly,” something which is also becoming increasingly important in facial recognition technology and other biometric technologies.
The researchers, who are affiliated with the Department of Security and Crime Science at the University College London in the United Kingdom, have demonstrated the first successful through-the-wall (TTW) detection of moving people using passive WiFi radar.

[NaturalNews] Two former high-ranking officials at the U.S. National Security Agency (NSA), a federal bureaucracy that collects data and intelligence on foreign communications for national security purposes, have come forward with allegations that the NSA actively monitors Americans as well. According to testimonies from both Thomas Drake, a former NSA senior official, and Kirk Wiebe, a former NSA senior analyst, the agency actively monitors and collects intelligence on every single American as part of a massive spying operation.
RT.com first broke the story after Drake and Wiebe, on two recent but separate occasions, disclosed inside information about the NSA’s spying activities to reporters. During a recent interview with Eliot Spitzer, host of Current TV’s ”Viewpoint” program, Drake explained how the 9/11 terrorist attacks were a catalyst for redefining America as a “foreign nation” in order to legitimize unwarranted surveillance of innocent Americans — and he says this backdoor spying program continues to this day.
“When you open up the Pandora’s Box of just getting access to incredible amounts of data, for people that have no reason to be put under suspicion, no reason to have done anything wrong, and just collect all that for potential future use or even current use, it opens up a real danger,” said Drake during the interview.
“And for what else could they use that data (other than for future prosecutions unrelated to terrorism or for blackmail purposes), particularly when it’s all being hidden behind the mantle of national security.”
Binney expressed similar sentiments during a recent interview with journalist Geoff Shively, according to RT.com, in which he disclosed that the federal government is basically collecting whatever data it possibly can on every single American. This is made even easier, of course, by social networking sites like Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Foursquare, Path, and many others that actively monitor and track people’s every action.

Central Banks are using Google data in order track economic trends before they become economic trends. But, while Bloomberg leads us to believe this has only just begun, the truth of the matter is quite different. The article puts across the feeling that Google Trends is a breakthrough in behavioral research, and that worldwide central banks are beginning to use the data in order gather information on the people who, in Bloomberg’s words, they “oversee.” But, Google is but one piece in a complex puzzle of Full Spectrum Dominance, using the diverse interplay of multiple social media interfaces and Pentagon digital-avatars of U.S. citizens predicting where individuals in the population will be and when. And, they are confident that their formulas are accurate.
Says the article, the Federal Reserve and the central banks of England, Israel, Italy, Spain and Chile have recently embarked upon studies to determine the helpfulness of Google search volumes in the pursuit of tracing trends in the economies they “oversee,” in the language of Bloomberg News. “The guardians” – their word, not mine – are pursuing techniques to “deploy nimbler policy responses.” According to Bloomberg, Erik Brynjolfsson, a member of the Federal Reserve Bank of Boston’s Academic Advisory Council, believes that “greater foresight could make the difference between a slowdown and a recession, a recovery and an inflation-stoking boom.

[NaturalNews] I’ve said often that the Information Age in which we currently find ourselves is turning out to be a double-edged sword when it comes to striking a balance between advancing our quality of life and preserving our freedoms.
Such is the case with a “new” product called a power strip.
Wait. I know. You’ve heard of power strips. Heck, you’ve probably got several of them in your home, powering your various electronic devices, television sets, DVD players, etc.
But did you know a company now makes a power strip that can actually spy on you.
According to Adrian Kingsley-Hughes at Forbes.com, this insidious new device looks, for all intents and purposes, like an ordinary power strip.
Evil piece of kit
The company, called Pwnie Express, manufactures a strip called the Power Pwn, which is described as “a fully-integrated enterprise-class penetration testing platform.”
“Through it’s (sic) ingenious form-factor and highly-integrated/modular hardware design, the Power Pwn covers the entire spectrum of a full-scale pentesting engagement, from the physical-layer to the application-layer,” the company says.
Hmmm. That’s highly technical talk and it’s too complicated except for a few tech gurus who can speak that language. According to Kingsley-Hughes: “This is an evil piece of kit.”
Some of the device’s features are:
– It is “unpingable” and there are “no listening ports in stealth mode” (my emphasis)
– It’s capable of carrying out “passive recon”
– It has 16GB of “internal disk storage” (for what?)
– “Maintains persistent, covert, encrypted SSH access to your target network”
According to Forbes, the power strip “could sit unnoticed in a home or work environment and yet be spying on an entire network.”
Another feature is an unlocked 3G/GSM adapter, which makes the strip compatible with GSM carriers in nearly every country on the planet.
“A hacker can communicate with the Power Pwn either over the web or via SMS text messaging, and it can be used to launch remote attacks against Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and Ethernet networks,” says Kingsley-Hughes.
Back to the term “pentest.” That is short for penetration test, which is the method of evaluating the security of a network or computer system by simulating an outside hack attack.
“These tests are carefully designed and crafted to define any gaps in systems without causing any downtime or unnecessary security risks,” says a definition from Network Security Services, Inc., an IT security firm.

For tonight’s Conversations with Great Minds – I’m joined by NSA whistleblowers Thomas Drake and Kirk Wiebe. Both men were involved in exposing the NSA’s massive, illegal, domestic spying program known as the Trailblazer project initiated in 2000. Despite not leaking any classified information – and exhaustively going through all the protocols required for members of the intelligence community to blow the whistle on wrongdoing – both men faced serious retributions for going public with what they knew about the NSA’s surveillance program. In 2007 – after a reporter for the Baltimore Sun obtained information regarding waste, fraud, and abuse at the NSA – FBI agents raided the home Kirk Wiebe – confiscating computer hard drives and business records – and revoking security clearance that Wiebe – an NSA veteran – had held since 1964. Wiebe was not charged with any crime. However – Thomas Drake – whose home was also raided – was charged with multiple crimes including violation of the Espionage Act of 1917. Eventually those charges were dropped in 2011. Since then – Drake has gone on to win multiple awards for his courage in blowing the whistle on the NSA – including the Ridenour Prize for Truth Telling and the Sam Adams Associates for Integrity in Intelligence. And both he and Kirk Wiebe have done tremendous work to inform all of us on the growing American surveillance state. The National Security Agency is building a massive spy center in Utah. What for? And will Americans be the targets of the NSA’s prying eyes?

[NaturalNews] A massive covert and secret operation by the FDA to seek out and muzzle several of THEIR OWN SCIENTISTS, those who were seeking to blow the whistle on the FDA’s own fraud and unethical handling of information regarding cancer treatment methods, has been completely exposed. The issue actually began as a dispute between the scientists and their superiors at the FDA, in which the scientists accused the latter of “FAULTY REVIEW PROCEDURES,” which directly led to the approval of the CANCER CAUSING mammogram and colonoscopy imaging machines.
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration secretly kept critics of its policy under surveillance, which is the epitome of a U.S. government agency creating a chilling fear for anyone trying to expose the fraud of the cancer “chronic care mismanagement” industry. The whole operation ensnared 21 workers, including journalists and Congressional officials.
As part of its surveillance, the FDA swept up thousands of confidential emails the scientists had with lawyers, journalists, Congressional staff and even President Obama. Although the investigation began with only five scientists, it is now revealed that the massive campaign is still in operation to suppress over 80,000 pages of documents and end the whistle-blowing on all fronts. The FDA has been caught red-handed trying to cover up a scam which adds to the blight of the $100 billion cancer industry, which is fed and bred by the FDA.
Muzzling the whistleblowers fails
This latest “SNAFU” is part of a broader, two-year long campaign to counter inside and outside critics of the agency’s medical review process. The FDA was most interested in intercepting and destroying confidential letters to at least a half-dozen Congressional offices and oversight committees, but unfortunately for the FDA, one of their private document handling contractors posted the personal emails to a public web site by mistake for a few days, and that’s when a few Congressional staff members, who are actually sympathetic to the scientists, saw the emails from the whistle-blowers. Drafts and final copies of letters the scientists sent to President Obama about safety concerns were also included.
In March of 2010, an article in The New York Times examined the safety concerns about imaging devices and quoted two agency scientists, who would later come under surveillance. Dr. Robert C. Smith and Dr. Julian Nicholas served as “ringleaders” for the group of “complaining” scientists. Lawyers for G.E. Healthcare wanted surveillance placed on the scientists because they were exposing to the media the fraud and danger of their mass money making devices. (http://www.nytimes.com)
Scientists’ computers were monitored down to the last keystroke, according to The New York Times. The FDA had pressured scientists to approve medical devices despite their own reservations about health risks, and wanted to make sure the scientists weren’t communicating this coercion with anyone. Democratic Rep. Chris Van Hollen fumed after he learned that he was on the list, saying, “It is absolutely unacceptable for the FDA to be spying on employees who reach out to members of Congress to expose abuses or wrongdoing in government agencies.”
This is proof that the cancer scam has been covered up for decades (since WWII). The fact that the FDA is spying on employees who reach out to members of Congress to expose fraud is just the tip of the iceberg. After the surveillance began, four of the five scientists lost their jobs. The unnamed scientists are suing the FDA, and say their treatment was in response to their claims of SAFETY ABUSE within the FDA.
Radiation and chemotherapy- The chemical holocaust
The bottom line is that Western medicine and the cancer industry in general offer no cures. In fact, a cure would destroy the industry by wiping out billions of dollars in profits that drug companies, radiologists and oncologists are counting on right now. This is precisely why the cancer industry dares not tell women the truth about vitamin D; for example, which prevents 77 percent of all cancers, including breast cancer. That is precisely why the “chronic care industry” has a blackout on vitamin D information while pushing hard for annual mammograms and colonoscopies that continue to cause cancer and generate repeat business. (http://www.conspiracyplanet.com)
On top of it all, global cancer rates are expected to increase by 50 percent by 2020, according to the latest report from the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC), a branch of the World Health Organization (WHO). Cancer is responsible for more than 12 percent of the 60 million deaths worldwide from any and all causes, and cases in the U.S. alone have increased nearly 20 percent just since the year 2000. It’s time to look into NATURAL CURES and stop believing in the agencies which profit from sickness.

Regulators and Politicians Work Hard … to Protect Corporate Wrongdoing and Smear Whistleblowers
When one of the most respected radiologists in America – the former head of the radiology department at Yale University – attempted to blow the whistle on the fact that the FDA had approved a medical device manufactured by General Electric because it put out massive amounts of radiation, the FDA installed spyware to record his private emails and surfing activities (including installing cameras to snap pictures of his screen), and then used the information to smear him and other whistleblowers:

Neustar – a company which has in many ways laid the foundation for the
surveillance infrastructure in America. It connects people with
companies that want to market to them aggressively and it does this neither with their knowledge nor their approval and very few people are talking about it. Journalist Reyhan Harmanci recently wrote an in-depth article about this company, she joins RT from San Francisco.

[NaturalNews] If you need any measure of just how statist and paranoid our Leviathan government has become, look no further than recent revelations that one of its own agencies has been caught spying on some of its own employees, just because they had differences of opinion regarding its operation.
The New York Times said previously undisclosed documents revealed recently indicate the Food and Drug Administration had conducted a “wide-ranging surveillance operation” against a group of disgruntled FDA scientists who had privately sent thousands of emails to Congress, attorneys, labor officials, journalists and, on occasion, even President Obama.
The report said initially the FDA had launched a narrow investigation into possible leaks of confidential agency data by five scientists, but that its scope grew quickly in mid-2010 into a far broader effort aimed at countering outside critics of the agency’s medical review process, as a cache of some 80,000 pages of computer documents indicated.
FDA officials who ordered the surveillance operation were seeking to squash what one memo called the “collaboration” of agency opponents comprised of 21 people, including FDA employees, congressional officials, outside medical researchers and journalists presumed to be working in unison to produce “defamatory” information about the agency.
A ‘specific danger to public safety’
As expected, agency officials defended the massive spying effort, using the excuse that agency computer monitoring was limited to just the five scientists who the FDA believed were leaking confidential information about the design and safety of some medical devices. Agency officials admitted the goal of the surveillance was to track the scientists’ communications, but they said the goal was never to impede those communications – only to see if the scientists were improperly sharing information.
