I Spy

The Obama administration was playing I spy on Americans at the same time it was ignoring national security threats like Kim Jong Un, Iran, the Syrian crisis, ISIS, even working with terrorism affiliated organizations.

So we have Ben Rhodes scrambling in the last months of Obama’s term unmasking all these people they were interested in. Meanwhile, Comey testified this year to Congress that Susan Rice and others had power to unmask, but when asked about Ben Rhodes claimed he “did not know” and wasn’t sure if Rhodes had unmasking authority. Like hell he didn’t know. Why put up such a blatant cover about one person’s ability to unmask?

We now know because Rhodes seems to have been in competition to unmask as many people as he could from Jan 2016 to Jan 2017. But Dir Comey, the great leaker, didn’t know that? Why would Comey be reluctant to admit Rhodes’ unmasking adventure?

“”We have found evidence that current and former government officials had easy access to U.S. person information and that it is possible that they used this information to achieve partisan political purposes, including the selective, anonymous leaking of such information,” Nunes wrote, The Hill reported.”

Breitbart:

U.S. officials told Circa on condition of anonymity that the intelligence reports included some intercepts of Americans talking to foreigners and many more involving foreign leaders talking about the future president, his campaign associates, or his transition team. They noted that most of the intercepts had little to do with the Russian election interference scandal, and some appeared to have nothing to do with national security.

Daily Caller

“It is obvious that Obama, Brennan, Rice, Power and Rhodes were involved in massive — underscore massive — unmasking of Trump people, friends and associates after Trump’s nomination and after the election,” DiGenova said.

I suppose it would not look or sound so horrible of Ben Rhodes, if we didn’t have this broken record going on.

Newsmax:

“The committee is looking into whether the unmaskings by Obama administration officials were done not for national security purposes, but to find and leak political information damaging to then-Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump.”

“In addition to Rhodes, former U.N. Ambassador Samantha Power, former National Security Adviser Susan Rice and former CIA Director John Brennan also are focuses of the investigation.”

“According to the report, the number of identities unmasked looks to have risen starting in July of 2016, at about the time Trump won the Republican nomination. They jumped again after he was elected in November and continued through January.”

Nunez said in The Hill:

“”We have found evidence that current and former government officials had easy access to U.S. person information and that it is possible that they used this information to achieve partisan political purposes, including the selective, anonymous leaking of such information,” Nunes wrote, The Hill reported.”

Rhodes also was one of the architects behind deconstructing American leadership in the world. Now he suddnely claims Trump is not up to the job of US leadership. It was always their US criticism that got in the way, and corrupted, any decent policy goals. After all, most of their policies were born out of American criticism.

Almost gloating about the world drift from US leadership, Rhodes said:

“But what has changed is there are [now] other power centers that are going to ensure that there are limits on certain things that the United States wants to do.” — Politico

Here’s a quote from Foreign Policy magazine: (May 2016) [the asshole behind Obama’s foreign policy)

Fact check: Obama’s hasn’t been an original foreign policy as much as it has been a politicized foreign policy. And this Rhodes guy reminds me of the Kennedy smart guys who helped get us into the Vietnam War. Does he know how awful he sounds? Kind of like McGeorge Bundy meets Lee Atwater.

Snowden’s faith in Obama was rocked

Snowden had ‘faith’ in Obama, but was disappointed

By JENNIFER EPSTEIN — Politico

6/17/13

 Edward Snowden says he decided to release classified information about national security surveillance after President Obama failed to live up to his 2008 campaign promises.

“Obama’s campaign promises and election gave me faith that he would lead us toward fixing the problems he outlined in his quest for votes,” Snowden said in a Monday question-and-answer session with readers of The Guardian. “Many Americans felt similarly.”

“Unfortunately,” he continued, “shortly after assuming power, [Obama] closed the door on investigating systemic violations of law, deepened and expanded several abusive programs, and refused to spend the political capital to end the kind of human rights violations like we see in Guantanamo, where men still sit without charge.” 

Sounds like that snowball of Snowden’s turned into a boulder, sitting on his shoulder.
And Obama’s ‘campaign blame’ is getting a dose of his own medicine.

Big–Bro just got a whole lot smarter

News articles are surfacing that Google, in partnership with NASA, has acquired a new super computer from D-Wave, a Canadian based company.

Its called a quantum computer with specs only a geek might understand. But I think anyone with brain cells should be able to understand the significance of it.

*Google is the front end to the NSA spying network. (and also involved with Obama’s campaign efforts) Why would a publicly held company Google team up with a government agency (NASA) and buy a quantum computer? Quantum computers have self-learning potential and become smarter using quantum algorithms, which run faster than any possible probabilistic classical algorithm. The end result is humans will no longer be needed to capture data OR analyze it. Quantum computers can do all this on their own.

Maybe its a marriage of fate? Artificial intelligence is the goal and destination.

*This can eliminate the pesky problem government faces with whistle blowers (I.E. Edward Snowden et al, those before him). The government now has a much more efficient way of keeping their massive data collection hidden from the general public and also the organizations whose job is to ensure the government does not break any constitutional laws.

First is a video that was posted by Natural News, a chilling radio discussion.
(also see their other report) Google purchased it.

Second, a piece from CNN talking about D-Wave NASA connection

Even CNN reported on it. Of course,they lightly touch on the many concerns about privacy and pretty much ignore the cozy relationship with NSA. This is CNN interviewing an expert about the quantum purchase related to the Google/NASA partnership.

It wasn’t until the end when they finally considered privacy concerns, as  sort of an afterthought, that the analyst described the use and was compelled to say “hopefully, Google will use it as a force for good”. Ah, now that’s a relief. And if not?… Remind me to check back with these bright analysts.

By the way, these pictures of rocks on Mars may be really neat, but there is plenty more they can do with quantum capabilities than space travel and taking pictures.

The type of computing it does especially pertains to the security area of data collecting and breaking communications. The ultimate goal of simulated or artificial intelligence. Of course, the analyst hopes they use its capabilities for good. But maybe we have to reexamine the term “good” too, like everything else they do. As I read the information to date, it will be growing exponentially in capacity over the next few years.

 

So where is this tin foil-plagued administration?

Last year Obama rolled out a big data initiative. With the enormous collection of data they now do, analysis of that data is a challenge. Enter the need for super computers and storage to feed their insatiable appetite to know as much as they can in real-time about Americans. (now that the genie is out of the bottle)

The Daily Caller had an interview with former NSA analyst William Binney, who has been sounding the alarm for over a decade, where he described their vacuum operation of pretty much everything communication-wise, and of an estimated 80% of what goes up on the web. Hence the need for analysis.

Binney: That’s my point. When you ask how much damage these leaks have done to our capability, they’ve actually done absolutely nothing. The terrorists were monitoring all of this information anyway, so they had a pretty good idea of what was being collected. So, who are we keeping this from? It’s not the terrorists. We are really keeping it from the American public. Because that’s who they’re collecting data about. And that’s who they’re keeping it secret from. The terrorists already knew all this stuff.

The President’s Data Initiatives last year is data mining on steroids, or quantum style.
Obama’s initiative is chuck full of a wish list catering to those needs:

“Accelerating and expanding efforts to make government information resources more publicly accessible in “computer-readable” form and spurring the use of those data by entrepreneurs as fuel for the creation of new products, services, and jobs.”

Note the spin on terms of use being for entrepreneurs and jobs. All of it is built around data mining. Yea and the educational goals and jobs, but the real focus is on the information of Americans. Like a kid in a toy store or candy shop, he suggests all the different possible ventures. All of it interdependent on this information. Prism is only part of the collection resources: with ObamaCare, medical, the IRS, phone and data communications, just as all the helpful “sign up” programs were instrumental to Obama’s data mining operation since his first campaign.

Government sets itself up as the keeper of all information, especially all the personal information it can get its greedy hands on. (they probably know about that birthmark) Wow, what it can do with that information – for your benefit of course. As if we cannot wait to be tracked in every move. Then its sharing capacity for all the new uses it can find for that information. Privacy be damned.

They believe in privacy for killing a baby in the womb, but for everything else, you get the probing “public eye”. How’s that colonoscopy working out for you? Eat more broccoli.

Listen to the words of Obama’s sales pitch about the vast “Initiatives” program:

The Open Data Initiatives project is “liberating” government data and voluntarily-contributed corporate data to fuel entrepreneurship, create jobs, and improve the lives of Americans in tangible ways. As a model, decades ago, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration began making weather data available for free electronic download by anyone. Entrepreneurs used these data to create weather newscasts, websites, mobile applications, insurance, and much more. Similarly, the government’s decision to make the Global Positioning System (GPS) freely available has fueled a vast array of private-sector innovations ranging from navigation systems to precision crop farming, creating massive public benefit and contributing significantly to economic growth. More recently, the Health Data Initiative, launched by the Institute of Medicine and the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services in 2010, has opened growing amounts of health-related knowledge and information in computer-readable form from the vaults of the government and publicized the availability of these data to entrepreneurs and innovators. Hundreds of companies and nonprofits have used these data to develop new products and services that are helping millions of Americans and creating jobs of the future in the process. Working closely with the US Chief Technology Officer, the US Chief Information Officer, and an array of agencies, the Open Data Initiatives team has launched and is continuing to scale open data efforts in Health, Energy, Education, Finance, Public Safety, and Global Development. These efforts involve government releasing general data resources in computer-readable form and in accordance with policies that rigorously protect privacy. The goal is to stimulate a rising tide of private-sector entrepreneurship that leverages these data to create tools that help Americans find the right health care provider for them, identify the college that provides the best value for their money, save money on their electricity bills through smarter shopping for the right rate plan, keep their families safe by knowing which products have been recalled, and much more – a rising tide of innovation that also contributes to economic growth and creates jobs.

Oh yes, it’s all to help you. Pay no mind to all the information sharing capability and big-brother collection resources that make all that possible. Welcome to ‘Big Brother 3.0, quantum scale. It’s what his initiative is really all about, big government.

But he is not done:

For Round 2, we are looking for Presidential Innovation Fellows to work on the existing Open Data Initiatives in Health, Energy, Education, Finance, Public Safety, and Global Development, as well as the following new data innovation efforts: [building virtual learning etc etc]

They have quite the appetite, don’t they? I’m sure it is educational learning they are concerned with.

Yes, Jane, you can kill your baby in the warm auspices of “privacy rights” under the federal government’s fiat law, just don’t try to opt out of the governmental data (abuse) system….it won’t be their hard drive that fails. But Obama vows to “fight” for your abortion right and free contraceptives.

Note how they always refer to it as “government data”. Government is the hub for it, I’ll grant them that. It all becomes government data. Funny how it transforms itself from private personal data into government data to market and extort. And then the pitch: ‘look how helpful all this will be to you.’ Sorry, it makes me want to hurl listening to their rosy vision of an America under super-surveillance, and how beneficial that all is to us serfs.

*Big-Brother just got so much smarter that little brother isn’t even needed anymore. Anyone ever seen the movie “Terminator”?

Some people are already calling it Skynet. Maybe the Skynet is befalling you, and that isn’t Chicken Little?
