Facebook and its infiltration into our modern society is now the barometer of whether or not a person is “suspicious” or not. Some psychologists are even suggesting that not having a Facebook profile means that you are a psychopath.
By not following the mass of sheeple giving up their personal information to online social networking sites as well as leaving a small online footprint, this signals a person who is potentially dangerous.
Even becoming employed may hinge on your Facebook profile – as a way to monitor your personal life and where you fit into society. The CIA has a quite popular Facebook page that invites college student to apply for National Clandestine Service.
In March, a letter from Mark Zuckerberg, CEO of Facebook, where he redefines “hacker” as meaning “building something quickly or testing the boundaries of what can be done” and those “hackers” are “idealistic people” who have a “positive impact on the world.”
The NSA recruits students from colleges and universities in a program that looks for the next generation of American-grown hackers.
Steven la Fountain explains that new hires must be able to decipher the inner workings of computer imputation to assist the US government in being the superpower of the technology world. “We are not asking them to teach kids how to break into systems, we’re not asking them to teach that. And a lot of them have said they wouldn’t teach that,” la Fountain adds. “We’re just asking them to teach the hardcore fundamental science that we need students to have when they come to work [at the NSA].”
Zuckerberg then refers to the NSA Utah Spy Center that “should be up and running in September 2013” which will connect all servers and routers and store all digital data in “near-bottomless databases” including private emails, cell phone calls, Google searches in conjunction with paper trails like receipts, traffic tickets, retail purchases to create detailed profiles on every American citizen.

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.

With news of California needing to borrow $10 billion from Wall Street not even a week old, California has fruitlessly acknowledged its losses in the Facebook IPO, through which the state had hoped to raise $2 billion mostly through income tax. California has come out of the dark to admit that the company’s stock price has “fallen far below” the $35 level assumed in the state’s revenue projections. Facebook (FB) saw its stock fall below $20 for the first time on Thursday, nowhere near its $38 initial public offering price.
California did not need to directly invest in Facebook to lose from the IPO. That’s just how bad off the state is. Instead, the cash-strapped Golden State was relying on the perceived tax obligations of Facebook insiders. The state’s Legislative Analyst’s Office said in their Wednesday report that if “the lower share prices persist through November and December, hundreds of millions of dollars of income tax revenue assumed in the state budget plan are at risk.”
The state’s Legislative Analyst’s Office received consistent inquiries regarding how the Facebook IPO has affected the California state budget, and so therefore had to illuminate its knowledge of the situation, however begrudgingly. “Facebook Revenue,” the Office admits, is assumed into California’s 2012-13 Budget Plan. What is California banking on? Tax proceeds from the IPO. From the Office,

The titans of the internet, including Google, eBay, Amazon and Facebook, are combining forces under the blanket of a newly formed lobby group that wants to influence lawmakers on how they can manipulate the internet as well as how important they truly are.
In September of this year, the lobby groups called the Internet Association , will be based in Washington, DC, and headed by Michael Beckerman, former adviser of the Energy and Commerce Committee within the House of Representatives.
The Internet Association’s goal is to control the perspective of elected officials on internet technologies, their uses and cooperation with various federal agencies. Their website claims they are “dedicated to advancing public policy solutions to strengthen and protect an open, innovative and free Internet.”
Beckerman explains : “The Internet isn’t just Silicon Valley anymore. The Internet has moved to Main Street. Our top priority is to ensure that elected leaders in Washington understand the profound impacts on the Internet and Internet companies on jobs, economic growth, and freedom.”
Through the influence of money and pressure, this lobby seeks to have an over-reaching effect on the internet as a whole. In conjunction with major corporations in the tech industry and remaining focused on subversive control over the internet, the Internet Association will lead the way toward Big Brother becoming a very necessary part of our lives.
Google, internet monster and collector of information for the National Security Agency (NSA), announced back in March that they will use a new feature to spy on Android and smartphones customers that will allow background noise to assist Google in identifying location and therefore track unsuspecting Americans better.

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?
