Latest Wikileaks ...
« on: March 07, 2017, 01:14:56 PM »
There will be a lot more on this today ... but I wanted to quote one quote I already heard ...
As Kim Dotcom chimed in on Twitter, "CIA turns Smart TVs, iPhones, gaming consoles and many other consumer gadgets into open microphones" and added " CIA turned every Microsoft Windows PC in the world into spyware. Can activate backdoors on demand, including via Windows update"

Basically, the CIA can turn any smart-TV anywhere, into a covert listening device, even when it is supposed to be off ... and they have a branch that does investigation into subverting car electronics ... "calling Mr Hastings ...".

1984 wasn't scifi ... it was a blue-print.

Accuracy of the material has been confirmed? Or are you just running off at the internet?

Where do you get your NSA info from, Agent 001?

I read a recent history of the NSA, that covers up until the mid-70s ... so I already knew this, in old style print.  What the police state has now is just a technical update from what they had in the 70s, when they promised to stop doing what they were hired to do.  The funny thing is, for the last 40 years, so many schlubs have believed their promises.  Even the modus vivendi between the US and the Soviet Union then, is still the foreign policy (Intel portion anyway) the US follows now.

I am pro-State ... so I am neither shocked nor offended.  Of course most of the Intel gathered on my mother in nursing home is wasted taxpayer money, but that is most of what the State does also.  It would have been interesting to hear, what the CIA heard, when they tapped Merkel's phone ;-)  Does she dress up in leather?  Does she whip her husband?  Achtung, Macht schnell!

"...the human race is divided into two distinct and irreconcilable groups: those that walk into rooms and automatically turn television sets on, and those that walk into rooms and automatically turn them off."  The Manchurian Candidate

My ex and I were opposites like that.  Guess which one I was?  Hint ... haven't watched TV since 2005.

The upper classes are always afraid of another French Revolution.  They have reason to fear.  So they have taken steps to head it off, if not prevent it entirely.  You will realize you are out of the Matrix, when you crave brie.

This leak serves no purpose, but to elicit fear from our allies, and give intelligence to our enemies. If the perpetrator was an American citizen, he should be charged with treason. The CIA was using that shit, and more, to monitor the communication of radicals overseas. They DO NOT ACT DOMESTICALLY. The american public is NOT being monitored by the CIA. We have the FBI and Homeland Security for that.

Agreed ... we have too many leaks ... but they happen because partisan politics.  Our allies should fear us ... Germany is the next Libya, right?  All non-millionaires are radicals ... why are you posting here again instead on MSNBC?  The "don't act domestically, they can fly on the FBI and DHS" ... you are joking right?  Who do you think keeps tabs on the FBI and the DHS.  I bet the CIA has good stuff on Comey, to get him to act like the boob he has acted like.

To quote the Kinks: "Paranoia may destroy ya."

I would be more careful of the local cops, than the CIA.

Actual Intel analysis by former Chief of Staff to Colin Powell ...

But it is all lies, including the lie that Trump is President.  Hillary became President, let Trump pretend he was President ... because Hillary is afraid of Putin's manliness, might be tempted to leave Bill.

I'll take that as a "no" then.

CNN is reporting that the Feds are opening a criminal probe to try to determine the source of the leaked documents. The article says that "officials" have confirmed the documents are largely genuine, but are still trying to confirm if all of them are, if they have been altered, and if there are more that haven't been released.

They have done that with all the Wikileaks materials.  And so far they have all proved genuine.  The Man likes to keep you in the dark, and you like it that way, too.

Who knows who did the leak.  Knowledgeable sources claim, there is a civil war already under way, in the Intel community.  Left-patriots against Right-patriots.  That is why there are competing leaks.  Of course all those Hillary emails that got copied by Huma onto her husband's porno laptop ... those you won't get to see.

As far as I'm concerned Powell gave up any credibility he may once have enjoyed when he lied to us about Iraq's WMDs. I can no longer believe anything he says.

This wasn't by Powell, but someone who worked for him.  Guilt by association?  If so ... then the whole government is guilty.
