Toward the NWO: NSA Spy Center, Spy Drones, Spy Computer and Others
(March 15) The National Security Agency (NSA) has revived a program called “Total Information Awareness,” which aims to collect and sift through every electronic communication around the world. The program was created during the first term of the Bush administration—an effort that was killed by Congress in 2003 after it caused an outcry over its potential for invading Americans’ privacy. With that, the NSA has now become the largest, most covert, and potentially most intrusive intelligence agency ever.
Under construction by contractors with top-secret clearances, the blandly named Utah Data Center sits in Bluffdale,Utah. Its purpose: to intercept, decipher, analyze, and store vast swaths of the world’s communications as they zap down from satellites and zip through the underground and undersea cables of international, foreign, and domestic networks. Flowing through its servers and routers and stored in near-bottomless databases will be all forms of communication, including the complete contents of private emails, cell phone calls, and Google searches, as well as all sorts of personal data trails—parking receipts, travel itineraries, bookstore purchases, and other digital “pocket litter.”
The NSA believes it’s on the verge of breaking a key encryption algorithm and opening up hoards of data. Anyone—from terrorists and weapons dealers to corporations, financial institutions, and ordinary email senders—can use strong encryption to seal their messages, plans, photos, and documents in hardened data shells. For years, one of the hardest shells has been the Advanced Encryption Standard, one of several algorithms used by much of the world to encrypt data. (Source)
(Jan 31) Did you know that a bill, HR 658, the FAA Air Transportation Modernization and Safety Improvement Act, has just passed both the House and the Senate which authorizes the use of 30,000 spy drones over America and accelerates drone deployment for surveillance of U.S. Citizens? Like the NDAA legislation that passed in November, this bill was not widely reported by the mainstream corporate media. (Source)
(Feb 13) It’s bad enough that drones have been welcomed by Congress into American skies, the latest proposed addition to the drone spy program is the use of nearly non-traceable surveillance hardware funded by the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA). The F-BOMB (Falling or Ballistically-launched Object that Makes Backdoors) introduces the idea of disposable surveillance as a guard against forensic evaluation and the ability to track the source of the drop.

(March 15) More and more personal and household devices are connecting to the internet, from your television to your car navigation systems to your light switches. CIA Director David Petraeus cannot wait to spy on you through them. Petraeus allowed that these household spy devices “change our notions of secrecy” and prompt a rethink of “our notions of identity and secrecy.” In the meantime, the biggest microchip company in the world, ARM, presented new processors that can be implanted into nearly any household appliance and connect it to the Internet so that the appliance could be remotely controlled in tandem with other applications. The company described the concept as the “Internet of things.” (Source)
