Creepy, even for spooks. Corporate Spooks.

Sen. Charles Schumer (D, NY) is making the public aware of spying billboards. Clear Channel Outdoor America has "spying billboards" that track and analyze you as you walk by. The corporate program is called RADAR.

http://abcnews.go.com/US/wireStory/schumer-probe-billboards-phone-data-track-shoppers-38794906 

OPINE: This past weekend I saw a re-run of what is purportedly one of the most popular episodes of The Avengers, with Patrick MacNee and Diana Rigg, called "The Cybernauts"(1965, b&w). What is interesting about old sci-fi is the inaccuracy and accuracy of the futuristic comments. In this one, the 'lone' head of "United Automation" is promoting the computer-robotic future he envisions. He mentioned robotic factories, wrist radios, public monitoring, and a couple of other things that have come-to-pass --except the balancing capability of two-legged cybernauts. While doing this, the protagonist 'John Sneed', belittlingly quips "A cyber security state."

This comment was made in a society that rightly feared surveillance experienced from Nazism, Fascism and Communism and other totalitarian societies. But that is 50 short years ago.

To view the episode, search "The Cybernauts".

The radio this week, 14June16, had a guest saying there are 64,000 people on the Do Not Fly List and "800,000 suspected terrorists"

Huh?

Searching, l found the source: http://www.pbs.org/newshour/rundown/why-can-people-on-the-terrorist-watch-list-buy-guns-and-other-faqs/  of14June16 These are numbers from Christopher Piehota, Director of the FBl's Terrorist Screening Center in Congressional testimony in September, 2015.

According to: http://iraq.usembassy.gov/resources/information/current/american/statistical.html which quotes lslamiCity.com (no dates of info given) Muslims in the US are 54% Male, and all Muslims Aged 18-29 are 29% of Total, and Aged 30-49 are 48% of Total.

The estimated number of Muslims in the USA according to http://www.pewresearch.org/fact-tank/2016/01/06/a-new-estimate-of-the-u-s-muslim-population/ is 3.3 million.

Other estimates range 2 to 7 millions.

In any case, 800,000 is 29% of ~2.76 millions. Yet, these are totals by religion, and a further breakdown by ethnicity is available on the web. Which we are quite sure is done by gov't number crunchers.

Comparatively, D-ClA Brennan's testimony before the Senate Intelligence Committee, http://www.commondreams.org/news/2016/06/16/cia-chief-just-confirmed-war-terror-has-created-lot-more-terrorists , says that the Terrorist Screening Data Base has 1.8 millions of names, or 1 out of every 20 Americans.

National Security Breach + Another Thing to Worry About  :ranting:

1] Clinton Foundation Hacked:

http://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2016-06-21/clinton-foundation-said-to-be-breached-by-russian-hackers 

{This link appears not to be working. Enter title and search.}

The FBI, NSA and CIA are investigating. This is part of a foreign operation targeting 4,000 politicians and political actors inside the USA. The links are informative. Foreign connections are also targeted. (Opine: In addition to this, probably a partial payback for the US intrusions into European leaders personal lives.)

2] Hillar's Private, Unsecured Email Server, @ clintonemail.com, ...

Last year, @hameedeh and l discussed intrusions into our printers. l had gotten a "request" to monitor my printer, l refused, but then found their icon with printer search going on my computer. Some of us could have guessed this happened -but, l didn't- the following:

Krebs "On Security" republished the findings of FarSight's March 2015 report that the memory from Hillar's printer was hacked and the contents copied. :shock::scarerun:   <--Shock & Horror

:fever:

3] http://examiner.com/article/isis-promotes-us-kill-list-while-guccifer-works-with-fbi 

lSlL "kill list" inside our USA

lSlL using social media has compiled and published a list of 8,000 names, addresses and email addresses for military and security personnel. The Pentagon is asking its employees and their families to refrain from using these media.

Opine: Meanwhile, the Congress and the subversive media are whining over "gun control".

What is  Pelosi whining  about?

I could put this under "Clinton Campaign Corruption", but since this deals more directly with this thread --the effects of NSA et alia peeping-Tom activities and NSA "mandates" for accessible points of peeping-- and how this affects our lives and well-being, we have to laugh at Representative/Minority Leader Pelosi.

"Hacker posts personal info of House Democrats and staff"

http://www.washingtonpost.com/national/pelosi-warns-collegues-of-harassing-calls-and-messages/2016/08/13/97535308-618e-11e6-84c1-6d27287896b5_story.html 

Pelosi was Speaker-of-the-House when these peeping-Tom points were enacted into law and policy. As a point made in the comments section of this article asked, if Pelosi didn't read the Affordable Care Act why would anyone expect her to have read these laws and policies?

Now Pelosi is saying, "Do not let your children answer the phone".  :hahaha::party:

Yep, Democrats are getting angry and obscene phone calls now.

So, for those of US who have endured ID Theft, hijacked tax returns, false billing, and so forth we cannot feel any empathy for you, Pelosi. :furious: Furious are You? :woot: Woot-to-Toot ! 

You, Pelosi, and the others are now suffering from the Quidnuncstein* you all created.

Since plays on Frankenstein such as "Peepinstein" are already used, Quidnunc-stein is not. Quid + nunc is Latin for "What now ?"  In English, "quidnunc" means a gossip or busybody with eagerness, or 'an eager gossip or busybody". And what did Frankenstein's creation do in the book? "Eavesdropping, the creature familiarizes himself with their lives and learns to speak, whereby he becomes eloquent, educated and well-mannered" (from Wikipedia).

But not your Quidnuncstein, Pelosi. Eavesdropping in prurient ways this creature familiarizes itself with US lives and learns to print-out with prejudice, whereby it becomes accusatory, algorithmic, and ill-mannered. And its infectious off-spring invade everywhere.

Now, l cannot wait for the Republicans to start whining.

In a reverse of the post at the top of this page, about "ISlL killing lists", the PBS program NOVA will air a counter-terror program this Wednesday, 07Sept2016 on PBS stations at 2100hrs EDT.

Mostly -and as shown on the Frontline program of 02Oct2002 "The Man Who Knew" (John O'Neil)- most info comes from phone calls -and now add social media.

Let's see if this program is any good.

"A little bird told me" has had new, enhanced meaning. ahhh, tweet, tweet

Hypocrisy with Political Cover:  

We are all aware of A-dorable Hillar's email scandals. "Extremely Careless", claims she didn't know classification headings, her "25 Objections" when answering under oath, quid pro quo, http://www.cnn.com/2016/10/15/politics/wikileaks-hillary-clinton-goldman-sachs-speeches/ ,  ad nauseum

So now, for trying to counsel two reporters on Top Secret information they already had, retired Vice-Chairman of the Joint Chiefs James Cartwright reportedly will get 6 months prison out of a sentencable 5 years incarceration for "lying to the FBI" about trying limit damage to the national security. http://www.militarytimes.com/articles/retired-gen-james-cartwright-charged-with-making-false-statements .

Brained ... Perception, Bias ...

Speaking in Munich, German Chancellor Merkel has again criticized Internet Searches (a DeutscheWelle business commentator has characterized Google as "fancied" by investors as a suprastate in influence)

http://www.rt.com/news/364235-merkel-facebook-google-algorithms/  provide a "narrow perspective" of self-reinforcing views; provide "eye of a needle" perspective by displaying preferred sources first.

http://www.theguardian.com/world/2016/oct/27/angela-merkel-internet-search-engines-are-distorting-our-perception 

--"...users (have) a right-to-know how and on what basis..." search results are presented

-- "filter bubbles" and "echo chambers" "suppose"/presume new information sought is based in previous searches which the Chancellor is against because among other effects it has apparently promoted right-wing agendas

--FaceBook News is the only source news  for "44%  of  Adults ... 61% for Millennials " [OpEd now ain't that scarry]

It ain't just the _____ gov't we have to worry about. l saw a news feature Wednesday on the "fake news problem" ... so l went ah-searching.

We have more to worry about than the gov't, the "paid pundits", New York's slanted-news, and all.

http://fusion.net/story/370735/edward-snowden-facebook-fake-news/  ; another headline quotes Snowden as saying reliance on FB's "news" is "dangerous".

A quick history of the Net and news and then "explained" in a coherent way is at:  http://www.vox.com/new-money/2016/11/16/13637310/facebook-fake-news-explained   A later-in-the-day article relates that engineers at FB are peeved Mark Z-bergs "blase' " attitude towards this problem. Into the article under the subtitle "Banning fake news ... " is a parallel to the Washington Post's article, "Twitter purges alt-right accounts", 16Nov16 2206hrsEST. One account suspended is the National Policy Institute which is described in Wikipedia.

Social Media is not, to use an American expression, 'the Wild West'; it is a Wild Rave.

So, as most of us on SC do, multi-source your news on any subject or item.

Here is a fun and informative read:

http://townhall.com/columnists/johnhawkins/2016/12/10/the-7-worst-examples-of-fake-news-from-the-mainstream-media-n2257896 

"Unsafe at any Read" --a parody on the title of Ralph Nader's hokey "Unsafe at any Speed" (1965). In that book, Nader claimed that the Corvair sports car had correctable defects in things like its suspension. In the 1970s, the US gov't investigation reported that the claims were unfounded and the Corvair was as safe as other cars. Of course, car-safety has come a long way since then.

2nd post: The CIA is claiming that Russia interfered in the US 2016 Election. How? The voting systems are not connected to the Internet. This has been an accusation since Feb 2016. The FBI said last Summer that as of then they found no evidence for the Clinton Claims. The CIA told Congress they have found nothing. But "unnamed sources" allegedly working inside these agencies are telling mainstream media that they "have found links". Of course, how many degrees of separation are not specified.

An article this week, which you can find by searching "Macedonia + 'fake news' " is telling the stories of Macedonian high school students making thousands of dollars with Fake News sites.

As posted before, our "smartphones" can be used as close-in espionage by hackers and peeping-Tom gov't.

This article from last year says that picture-taking is the users most often used feature, 92% of respondents said.

So be careful of the pictures you take. These can also be filed under associates with facial recognition technology.

Trump - lnteIIigence Community Assessment - RT.com - ?

On Friday, 06Jan17, the President-Elect was given a 50 page-based briefing by DNI,DCIA, D-FBI and D-NSA on alleged Russian hacking and influence operations targeting the 2016 US General Election supposedly favoring D.J.Trump. The unclassified version for public release in 25 pages can be found here:

http://www.dni.gov/files/documents/ICA_2017_01.pdf 

OpEd: l can only hope that the other unreleased 25 pages have information other than the hyperbolic contrivances released to the public. This is an easy read.

The (U) Report basically alleges the RT.com is the core influence operator in cahoots with Wikileaks and Gruccifer 2.0.  to wit:

RT Editor meets with Julian Assange at the Equadorian Embassy-London in August 2013 to form a "partnership" with Wikileaks with RT being the beneficiary of Wikileaks information.

This "assessment" also cites 1] Putin expresses his hope in Trump wanting good relations with Russia and 2] the report reflects the Russian-same attitude shared with millions of Americans of "ABC = Anybody But Clinton".

The report reads like Joe McCarthy's State Department "List" of innuendo. Some of it like when McCarty accused the Army by using half a photo.

OpEd: l found it very anticlimactic".

The Russian response is dismissive. RT.com has a rebuttal here:

http://rt.com/op-edge/372942-rt-us-intelligence-reveal/ 

The ICA cites two programs, Abby Martin's Breaking the Set and The Truthseekers, but both programs have been off-air for 2+ years. Ref: See p.6 of (U) ICA above. So how these programs influence a General Election is not adequately explained.

Another misnomer is the August 2013 meeting at the Embassy. Who knew who was going to run-and-win their party's nomination? ? ? ? ?

 Warning: Security Alert Notice which people are getting trying to log into RT.com. Google is auto displaying this at the behest of gov't. To work around it, log into the article. After you have it and the "alert" interferes, turn-off your modem and click-off the Alert. Read Article. Red-Close article. Run Security Scan. Turn on modem.

Creepy things to come:

 

1]  "An Important Step in Artificial Intelligence", 11May15, by Sonia Fernandez

 

http://www.news.ucsb.edu/2015/015416/artificial-brain-important-step

 

--this news "neural circuitry" may possibly be expanded to ~1015 synaptic connections that exist in the human brain

 

-- to see picture one, goto print-preview

 

--research findings are in the journal Nature

 

 

2] "Robots to the Rescue: How Artificial Intelligence will Impact Cybercrime", 11May15, by Ben Rossi

 

http://www.information-age.com/technology/security/123459462/robots-rescue-how-artificial-intelligence-willimpact-cybercrime

 

--the article's theme is that robots with high AI will defeat cybercriminals because they work 24/7 and react in fractions off a second

 

--Opine: but the problem is, cybercriminals will have the same or better

 

 

---there are also articles about AI running hedge funds and helping you buy a phone

Searching AI on SC, this is the only previous post that came up. Yet, l remember AI being in other threads.

Nevertheless, l finally saw the 1973 film  WestWorld  with Richard Benjamin, Richard van Patten and Yul Brenner. The film is about a robot based vacation fantasy world. As problems develop in the robots, 32 minutes into the film is this dialogue:

lst Man: " ... l find it difficult to believe in a disease of machinery." [Explained: the problems in the robots were spreading in the same pattern as a communicable disease. Between bots and then to other bot communities.]

2nd Man; the Chief Supervisor: "We aren't dealing with ordinary machines here. These are highly complicated pieces of equipment  almost as complicated as living organisms. ln some cases, they have been designed by other computers. We don't know exactly how they work. "

In remember reading in 1979 or 1980 that computers were being used to design desk top and other computers.

Does "computer virus" ring any bells?

How Many in the lnaugural Crowd? "Alternative Facts"  :hahaha:<--"such gov't speak"

http://www.theatlantic.com/entertainment/archive/2017/01/1984-george-orwell-alternative-facts-trump-kellyanne-conway/514259/ 

Interesting and informative article. And a nice commentary.

The article is commenting on the sudden surge in Orwell's 1984 book sales after the November 8th General Election. There are several books mentioned in conjunction with Conway and Orwell. A short read.

One political classic also mentioned is Hannah Arendt's "The Origins of Totalitarianism " (1951). In it, she suggests that anti-Semitism (which also includes Arabs and lslam) was only a sub-theme of Nazism (l do not agree-ed.).

OpEd:   Today, 25th of January, President Trump signed an Executive Order banning refugees from Muslim dominant states from entry into the USA, for four months. Simultaneously, the 50 top priority construction projects was also announce. Maybe so the American public will watch the money rather than admit to the religious discrimination.

From a reviewer's wording on the Net, Arendt says that human rights and civil rights -especially when applicable to refugees- are actually non-existent as these victims' 'rights' "conflict with national interests". Yet, as we know, what is a "national interest" is really about how the political 'elites' want to show-off for themselves. So "no state claims" the refugees.

As was said after 9-11, the Muslims that came to the USA predominately did so not only for the economic opportunities, but to also get-away from the Mid-East's "craziness". Yet the excuse the anti-Semites want to use is Franco's deception during the Spanish Civil War: that there was a "5th Column", when actually Franco did not have a single operative inside the city.

1]  Controlling YOUR  Brain Stem and the Slot Machine in your pocket:

Monday, 30Jan17 PBS News Hour    had a piece on Tristan Harris of "Time Well Spent" discussing how your phone is trying to control your lifehttp://www.pbs.org/newshour/videos/page/2/#205477  Eight and three-quarter minutes long, it is an intro-level informative piece and the phones in our lives.

For a more detailed discussion, the easiest way to access Harris is searching his article "How Technology Hijacks People's Minds -" of 18May16. Other info is at the "Time Well Spent" website.

2]  How this kind of digital behavior can be weaponized against 'anyone' is in the Jennifer Golbeck radio interview, http://npr.org/programs/ted-radio-hour/?showDate=2017-02-03 . Skip the first part an go to the 21 minute mark where the previous interviewee is romanticizing about how the digital world is like space exploration, then the Golbeck segment begins at 22'40" and she begins expressing her concerns about destroying peoples' live by digital media. lt ends at 33 minutes.

For Golbeck's "TED Talk" with related info: http://www.npr.org/2015/09/14/440305167/what-can-companies-predict-from-your-digital-trail . A keyword is "homothety" which she uses.

3] From Golbeck's lecture, SC readers will immediately guess that l do not like "curly fries". :D

All of this raises a question: is there an "acquired behavior" -or "habit", is better- that will confuse company and gov't algorithms ? ? ? ? ?

As l have written for years, and remember about every day, n-e-v-e-r put anything on line that you do not want the Entire World to know.

l did this morning. Russia and Japan were the only two external nationals discussed.

In the interview, Snowden said he was in Japan in 2009-2012 (@47 minutes) and a couple of news articles say the same. Yet, when l watched the Oliver Stone movie --if l heard correctly-- it said he was in Japan in 2005-2007 implanting malware into hospitals, power companies, etc(movie @~55 minutes). He could have done 2+ tours.

l did some rummaging around on the Net and found:

http://www.japantimes.co.jp/news/2016/06/04/national/nsa-whistleblower-snowden-says-u-s-carrying-out-mass-surveillance-in-japan/ 

An earlier piece, https://theintercept.com/2014/03/12/nsa-plans-infect-millions-computer-malware/  related things like "fake Facebook server", TURBINE, "Expert System" ( a "decider" which displaces human decisions, targeting at electronic speed), and rerouting the lnternet to NSA servers. [[ lnteresting question: is this how Hillary's and Podesta's emails were 'hacked' :woot: ???? There is no evidence 'provided' like with the Sony hack -as Snowden pointed out in the interview. ]]

Since, Japan was mentioned in the interview, l was wondering if any NSA malware and surveillance  implants could have affected the TEPCO Daichi, Fukushima nuclear plant disaster. None found. BUT l did find two interesting factoids: 1] computer problems did affect radiation readings albeit to a small degree. and 2] TEPCO is still using (2000) Windows XP --Microsoft stopped upgrade service in 2014. TEPCO plans on using XP until 2019.  http://www.extremetech.com/computing/204056-48000-pcs-at-fukushima-plant-operator-tepco-still-run-windows-xp

This reminds me of an experiment for television back in the 70s. A home was wired with cameras nearly everywhere, excepting privy areas. Then for a year the home was recorded. After a couple of weeks, the family acted as if the cameras were not around, and even recorded the moments when the wife asked for a divorce.
