    Google's deep CIA and NSA connections

    The Western media is currently full of articles reporting Google's denial that it cooperated in a government program to massively spy on American and foreign citizens by accessing data from Googles servers and those of other U.S. software companies.

    The mainstream media has, however, almost completely failed to report that Google's denial, and its surface concern over 'human rights', is historically belied by its their deep involvement with some of the worst human rights abuses on the planet:

    Google is, in fact, is a key participant in U.S. military and CIA intelligence operations involving torture; subversion of foreign governments; illegal wars of aggression; and military occupations of countries which have never attacked the U.S. and which have cost hundreds of thousands of lives in Afghanistan, Iraq, Pakistan, and elsewhere.

    To begin with, as reported previously in the Washington Post and elsewhere, Google is the supplier of the customized core search technology for 'Intellipedia, a highly-secured online system where 37,000 U.S. spies and related personnel share information and collaborate on their devious errands.

    Agencies such as the so-called 'National Security Agency', or NSA, which is implicated in the current 'spying on Americans' scandal, have also purchased servers using Google-supplied search technology which processes information gathered by U.S. spies operating all over the planet.

    In addition, Google is linked to the U.S. spy and military systems through its Google Earth software venture. The technology behind this software was originally developed by Keyhole Inc., a company funded by Q-Tel In-Q-Tel , a venture capital firm which is in turn openly funded and operated on behalf of the CIA.

    Google acquired Keyhole Inc. in 2004. The same base technology is currently employed by U.S. military and intelligence systems in their quest, in their own words, for "full-spectrum dominance" of the planet.

    Moreover, Googles' connection with the CIA and its venture capital firm extends to sharing at least one key member of personnel. In 2004, the Director of Technology Assessment at In-Q-Tel, Rob Painter, moved from his old job directly serving the CIA to become 'Senior Federal Manager' at Google.

    Even though it is a Russian article, it sounds credible. Google has managed to escape numerous privacy and copyright violations in the USA over the years. Even when they do get fined for obvious violations, it is a pittance.

    I have also seen compelling evidence that the Chrome browser is spyware that records all of your actions on the web. Some people think is is being used as another GoogleBot, while others believe the motives are more devious. The only thing that is is clear is that it is being done without users' knowledge or consent, and their current TOS allows them to use whatever data they collect for whatever purpose they choose. These days I only use Chrome when logged into Google sites or when using Google tools because Google sites do operate faster when using Chrome.

    Do I trust Google? Only about as much as I trust our current president.

    If you take a look at all things google does, it is a long serie of gathering information and not only from their algorithm.

    They are sick people to even think that their users will take this kind of pill!

    I guess that they have most of our homes photographed now since street view is working well in my area of the far East? I could even look over the high fence into the back garden of my Father's house in the UK to check out clothes hanging on the line.

    I've always been hesistant to join the googlebashing about how intrusive they are cause it seemed like tinfoil hat stuff to me... But recent revelations, especially hearing schmitt talk... Have made me rethink the wisdom of my stance. Considering switching back to FF as my standard browser and using other SE's as my primary vehicle.

    Google just seems way too in bed with Obama and the intel community for my comfort, and way short on giveadamn when it comes to privacy. I wouldnt trust schmitt far as i could throw him, he's an information fascist and very fuckin short on conscience.

    Just remember that there are only two things that drive Google: profits and gathering of personal information. Everything they do fits into one or the other. It is easy to understand the first, but there may be many more surprises to be revealed about what they do with the second.

    The problem with google is that they have no ethical policy, the primary goal is making money even if that harm people. We already saw that with the selling ads for illegal drugs, and it will never stop them. Every day there are more illegal activities from google. AG Slams Google for Links to Pharmacies, Pirated Content

    Mississippi's attorney general announced today that he will subpoena Google for records about its activity surrounding rogue, online pharmacies, as well as pirated content."Google is aiding and abetting criminal activity and putting consumers at risk," Mississippi AG Jim Hood said in a statement.
    At issue are links to online pharmacies and copyrighted material that pop up if you search certain phrases on Google. According to AG Hood, Google has not made enough of an effort to remove access to this type of content on its search engine.
    "Google's lack of response leaves us no choice except to issue subpoenas to Google for possible violations of state consumer protection acts and other state and federal civil and criminal laws," Hood said

    The ethical viewpoints of Liberals are quite different than those of conservatives. Google is a very Liberal organization who thinks the normal rules do not apply to them.

    Why else would they steal images from people's web sites and place them in Google Images and then not inform people that copyrighted images are not free to use? The overwhelming number of Google users believe that Google Images are provided by Google and are free to use. I frequently run into problems with clients who send me Google Images for use on their web sites. They insist that those images are free to use.

    Why would they digitize copyrighted books and then plan to make them freely available to others? This is not their property and they have no right to do something like that.

    Another comforting thought related to the other major player on the web who is severely ethically challenged. I dislike everything about FaceBook and especially Zuckerberg, who has repeatedly been caught selling personal information about members in direct violation of his own policies.

    Funny that many of us start rejecting our systems to have a peaceful life that reconnect with mother nature...

    It is interesting to see how US lawmakers are reacting compared to EU lawmakers, plus google didn't collect $800 millions+ liberal political compaign for nothing, they just bought their immunity.



    Street View: Google given 35 days to delete wi-fi data

    Google has been given 35 days to delete any remaining data it "mistakenly collected" while taking pictures for its Street View service, or face criminal proceedings.

    I guess it is only the beginning... "mistakenly collected data" lol, you have to be a sleep to believe it, that's just another form of modern mercenary: hired for money.

    How can anyone mistakenly capture Wi-Fi data while filming Street View images? The two technologies are unrelated. There doesn't appear to be anything mistaken about it. The only mistake was getting caught.
