While we thought the Monsanto Protection Act was bad, never mind the NDAA and a string of other fascist power grabs, here comes the NSA asking for the same thing Monsanto got. Blanket immunity for everyone they work with, themselves as well of course, but they can use the “national security” joker anytime they want so they don’t really need anything more.
Of course they would do this. The government has given every signal possible that it’s time to wheel their military industrial corporate tanks into position.
NSA Boss Asks Congress For Blanket Immunity For Companies That Help NSA Spy On Everyone
This will come as no surprise to anyone, but NSA boss General Keith Alexander is pestering Congress for a new law which would provide blanket immunity for companies helping the NSA collect data on everyone.
Gen. Keith Alexander has petitioned Capitol Hill for months to give Internet service providers and other firms new cover from lawsuits when they rely on government data to thwart emerging cyberthreats. Basically, he’s arguing that if the NSA orders companies to do something illegal, the companies shouldn’t be liable for that. There’s some logic behind that, because when you get an order from the government, you often feel compelled to obey. But, of course, the reality is that this will give blanket cover for companies voluntarily violating all sorts of privacy laws in giving the NSA data. And, theoretically you could then sue the government over those violations, but we’ve seen in the past how well that goes over. First, the courts won’t give you “standing” if you can’t prove absolutely that your data was included. Then, if you get past that hurdle, the government will claim “national security” or sovereign immunity to try to get out of the case. And, even if it gets past all of that, and you win against the government, the feds shrug their shoulders and say “now what are you going to do?”
And, of course, rather than narrowly target this immunity, it appears that Alexander would like it as broad as possible. (More)
Skynet’s Been Growing for Decades
This snooping’s been going on for ages so for the awake the news isn’t anything new. What’s to look carefully at is why and how they’re going to use it to their advantage. Here’s what’s been going on up to this latest era we’re currently in:
Snowed In By Snowden?
We don’t know about the Snowden leak. Lots of fishy stuff such as he got everything out on a thumb drive from a place like that. That’s a stretch. I mean c’mon, he says what hotel he’s in and the CIA can’t find this guy? Reminds me of the CNN interview with Bin Laden in Afghanistan when the world’s biggest military machine couldn’t find him for 10 years.
Sheesh. And the amazing thing is that so much of the world falls for this crap.
Again, this NSA “airing” could be a pressure release valve to give the masses the impression whatever’s been hidden is coming out so surely SOMEONE will do something to take care of this IF it’s really a problem. It’s also a clever way to bring their Orwellian plan into our reality and get everyone to accept it.
Often these are trial balloons to check for public reaction. As usual it attracts some lip service and will get buried as new “crises” cross our screens.
What’s noteworthy is that the official reactions of government officials have almost been unabashedly unanimously in favor of this surveillance. That’s what’s freaky. Take a look at this article and see if you don’t get nauseous: 22 Nauseating Quotes From Hypocritical Establishment Politicians About The NSA Spying Scandal.
Here’s a terrific breakdown of what the real story is behind all of this seeming information “leak” from Jack Mullen at Activist Post:
With this so-called leak from Snowden, the public is now aware of something that has been going on for decades and, by now, would have already compiled billions of records about hundreds of millions of people in the America and the world.
In fact this ‘leak’ really doesn’t provide a lot of new information, since we already knew “The ECHELON system is not designed to eavesdrop on a particular individual’s e-mail or fax link. Rather, the system works by indiscriminately intercepting very large quantities of communications and using computers to identify and extract messages of interest from the mass of unwanted ones. A chain of secret interception facilities has been established around the world to tap into all the major components of the international telecommunications networks. Some monitor communications satellites, others land-based communications networks, and others radio communications. ECHELON links together all these facilities, providing the US and its allies with the ability to intercept a large proportion of the communications on the planet.”
But what we do learn from the media’s focus on this “new shocking revelation” is that the technology of secret, off-the-record, underground intelligence operations working for either a breakaway civilization, living side by side with earth’s existing civilizations, or operated as a spook operation serving a multinational global elite seeking to control and rule the world, is far more advanced than previously believed. Moreover, it would seem likely this new “leak” is just another bit of predictive programming designed to alert the world something even bigger is already in the works.
The data center, at a cost of $2 billion (but much higher, based on the cost of the technology already created to make this possible) is probably the outward tip of an iceberg to introduce and indoctrinate the public to something even worse than the news that every bit of human communication and knowledge is and has been recorded for decades.
In terms of data storage, some publications suggest the data center will house digital storage capacities on the order of YottaBytes which is a number so large it is incomprehensible to the human mind. A Yottabyte is one septillion bytes or 10 to the 24th power bytes. Enough storage, indeed, to record and keep every single bit of human digital information; every phone call, text message, Internet chat, Email, song, word spoken, every book, bank account, all financial data, patents, stolen intellectual property, and more. With this amount of storage and more on the way, as the “law of accelerating returns” turns out denser and faster memory, the entire real-time movie of mankind can be recorded, analyzed and used, for what – only the gods know.
“Cyberdyne Systems” 2013
At the center of the data center will be one of the world’s most powerful computers ever built (at least as far as we are told). The so-called, and named with a wink to triangle-worshipping cults, ‘Titan Supercomputer’ will come alive and for the first time operate at the speed necessary and with the memory required to become conscious.
According to Ray Kurzweil, the geek poster boy of transhumanism, in his 1999 prophecy and transhumanistic bible entitled When Computers Exceed Human Intelligence: The Age of Spiritual Machines, the above average human brain operates or process approximately 20 million billion calculations per second, in other words 20,000 trillion calculations per second.
In the article linked below, the NSA Supercomputer Titan, coincidentally is advertised to operate at 20,000 trillion calculations per second. Furthermore, Kurzweil explains that in addition to computing power, a human-like sentient computer would also have to have at least as much memory as the current state-of-the-art human being, which he calculates to be about 1 million billion bits or a 1000 trillion bits: and since a byte is 8 bits and kilobyte is 1024 bytes, that works out to approximately 122 terabytes or 122,000 gigabytes.
According to the article above, the memory available to Titan is on the order of at least 5 Zettabytes or 5 trillion gigabytes, which is enough memory to incorporate 41 MILLION HUMAN BRAINS.
According to the original Terminator movie timeline, Skynet’s technology was built and began deployment in 1994 (no doubt an Orwell wink, as a Terminator robot is sent back to 1984 to stop the birth of JC – not Jesus Christ, but John Connor), and on August 4, 1997 the machine went online. Learning geometrically, the machine became sentient at 2:14 AM, 25 days later on August 29, 1997.
The new real-life NSA supercomputer, called Titan, is named after a race of gods created from descendants of Earth and Uranus, hybrids, immortal, of great strength of body and mind and rulers of Earth; it was the Titan Prometheus who created man from clay and theft of fire.
The Titan Supercomputer, with enough computing power and infallible memory to become sentient, will come online in October, 2013 and, like “Skynet”, will it begin to learn? With the brain capacity of 41 million human minds and all of the data and information about billions of human beings – this “machine” could become quite powerful very quickly. With connections to satellites and every major power and command center on earth and the knowledge base of nearly every human mind in the written history of mankind – all written knowledge: we can only imagine the possibilities.

We’re There- But It Too Will Pass Away
There are no more gonna be’s or might be’s, their plan is virtually complete, so to speak. This massive scheme and all of its ancillary fascist tentacles has been assembled over decades with trillions of dollars syphoned from the world’s economies while a distracted, dumbed down populace unwittingly helped create and build their own prison system.
Slave species comes to mind.
However, the real awakening does roll on, despite the daily revelation of something more Orwellian than the day before. In the grand scheme of things this New World Odor is really a fart in the wind, a boil on the planet that thinks it’s some kind of eternal mountain. Man are they in for a surprise.
