Social Media is A Tool of the CIA: “Facebook, Google and Other Social Media Used to Spy on People” | Global Research – Centre for Research on Globalization

The government, Facebook and Google want to know every intimate detail of your life. People that use Facebook and Google are happy to help.

A CBS news article published in 2011 entitled “Social Media Is a Tool of the CIA. Seriously” reveals the “unspoken truth” which the mainstream media including CBS have failed to address.

The CIA is using Facebook, Twitter, Google (GOOG) and other social media to spy on people.”

This article published by CBS refutes the lies of the MSM (and CBS). It confirms the insidious relationship between the CIA, the Search Engines, Social Media and major advertising conglomerates: “You don’t need to wear a tinfoil hat to believe that the CIA is using Facebook, Twitter, Google (GOOG) and other social media to spy on people. That’s because the CIA publishes a helpful list of press releases [link inactive] on all the social media ventures it sponsors, via its technology investment arm In-Q-Tel. … “

Social Media and Search engines are being used to Spy on Americans! But not only on Americans. The process of personal data collection is worldwide.

What is at stake, however, is not only the issue of “Privacy”. The online search engines also constitute an instrument of online media censorship.

Google has introduced algorithms intended to downgrade independent and alternative media. In this regard, the Guardian reported (December 2016) on “How Google’s search algorithm spreads false information with a rightwing bias.

Google and CIA: old friends

Are you seeing a trend yet? Google (GOOG) has been a partner with the CIA since 2004 when the company bought Keyhole, a mapping technology business that eventually became Google Earth. In 2010, Google and In-Q-Tel made a joint investment on a company called Recorded Future, which has the Minority Report-style goal of creating a “temporal analytics engine” that scours the web and creates curves that predict where events may head.

Google is already helping the government write, and rewrite, history. Here, from its transparency report, are some stats on the amount of information it has either given to the government or wiped from the web based on requests by U.S. agencies:

  • 4,601 requests from U.S. government agencies for “user data
  • Google complied with government requests for user data 94% of the time.
  • 1,421 requests for “content removal
  • Google complied with content removal requests 87% of the time.
  • 15 requests were from “executive, police etc.” 1 was a national security request.

Who would have thought years ago that patting the neighbor girl on the head, transporting a Sudafed bought on vacation over state lines or having an arbitrarily determined excess amount of cash in your wallet (asset forfeiture) would land you in jail? Calling a girl a ‘girl’ in progressive education circles will now win you reprimand if not a firing.

There are so many laws on the books that hardly anyone know them all. But someone does.

There is always a government flunky on some mission that will win promotion, more money or keep their stats up so they can keep their job.

Separating you from your money and freedom is the result.

Today’s innocent detail in your life that you broadcast to the world could already be illegal, doubtless it will be in the future.

But hey, getting those two new Facebook ‘friends’ is worth it. You better update that Facebook selfy before you Google that medical condition you don’t want anyone to know about.


Be seeing you
