Privacy of World Citizens Wiped Out by USA
Canada Free Press ^ | Friday, May 31, 2013 | Judi McLeod

Posted on 05/31/2013 9:19:32 AM PDT by Sheapdog

As of yesterday you are a Citizen of the World with no Privacy—no matter in which country you are located.

The ribbon-cutting ceremony invite, sent to a select group of Utah politicians and dignitaries for the massive Utah Data Centre in Bluffdale, Utah was as mysterious as the facility itself. Canada Free Press (CFP) could find no pictures, no accounts of the event anywhere on the Internet today even though an earlier media release said reporters would be there.

The bigger-than-the-CIA National Security Agency (NSA) had previously stated that the facility would start operations in September, 2013.

Why should this event mean anything to you and yours?

“While the NSA has offered no specifics about the Utah Data Center’s operations, a 2012 Wired magazine article, citing former intelligence and NSA officials, said computers at the data center will collect electronic information—from emails to cellphone records to purchasing receipts—from all over the world—, store it and look for threatening patterns.” (emphasis CFP’s).

With the privacy of every man, woman and child on earth now ‘deleted’, as far as is known not one country has moved to litigate against NASA and the largest spy center known to mankind.

The $2-billion, 1.5-million-square-ft. facility on the outskirts of Salt Lake City in Bluffdale will store 1 trillion terabytes of information, a sort of computer that swallowed the world.

Building started back in 2009 when the Obama administration approached MIDA (Military Installation Development Authority) to help build utilities for the Utah Data Center. MIDA created a project area and had the land annexed into Bluffdale. The NSA paid MIDA for all utility construction. (Salt Lake Tribune).

Anyone who doesn’t know that his personal information is on the internet is not fully awake.

Do your best to keep truly personal info about yourself private—a task that gets harder every day.

Tip: don’t complain about privacy if you post hundreds of pic of yourself online, make YouTube videos,, let others follow your geolocations, and then post personal information on Facebook everyday. You did it to yourself for all those nifty apps, buddy. Surely you didn’t think they were “free” did you?

And in January, IRS starts receiving your electronic health records as part of Obamacare.

ATF has a bid out for a tracking database, that will not only scrutinize you, but will make a map of who you associate with.

This might work - Utah can collect all the info on DC and then the state can seize control of the facility and successfully secede from the Union under threat of revealing everything they know.

Too bad Texas didn't try to get this Federal contract. :)

They will search for “conservative” and “gun” and almost everyone who posts on FR will be picked out for their “possible terrorist” list. That is, if we aren't already on it.

Not to defend the corrupt American government at all, but many European countries are well ahead of us on this score-Britain with cameras all over the country, planning to collect birth-to-death data through the NHS on citizens, etc. But I’ll admit to nit-picking, as we’re doing our damndest to plug in to the matrix.

I would like to go on record as saying that Baraq O. Bama is the most awesome president in the history of this country. And I might add that all of my gunz were lost in the boating accident and I was so sad that I swore then and there to never own any ever again. There.

Yeah, but it's a worldwide phenomenon if you use modern communications. The article states that the information will be collected "from all over the world." We just live in the heart of the beast.

So there’s no moral difference between what a person does and what the govt is doing?

That should be enough to store about half of the fake profiles on Facebook.

Any chance for $2 Billion we might:

See an unedited copy of the dark lord’s birth certificate.

Know who issued the stand down order in Benghazi.

Identify and remove all known communists in government.

What really happened at Roswell.

What the dems had on the GOP to prevent them from removing BC after his impeachment.

What Sandy Berger stole and why he got a pass.

Who killed Vince Foster.

The real cause of Arkanside.

And most importantly, find the one, often claimed, but never found, peaceful Muslim.

Snort!

Series though, what is a trillion times a trillion?

Is there even a number for that?

Hardly, it would be a mere pittance, or .0000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000001 of a google.

The facility will hold 1-followed-by-24-zeros bytes; a google would be 1-followed-by-100-zeros bytes;

“...will make a map of who you associate with.”

And if you keep to yourself and don’t associate with people then you’ll be profiled as a dangerous loner psycho.

10^24 bytes is called a Yottabyte.

Having come from a healthcare organization that had over 2 exabytes of data stored on their SAN, this is mindboggling.

will store 1 trillion terabytes of information, A Google?

· 1 Bit = Binary Digit
· 8 Bits = 1 Byte · 1000 Bytes = 1 Kilobyte = 103
· 1000 Kilobytes = 1 Megabyte = 106
· 1000 Megabytes = 1 Gigabyte = 109
· 1000 Gigabytes = 1 Terabyte = 1012
· 1000 Terabytes = 1 Petabyte = 1015
· 1000 Petabytes = 1 Exabyte = 1018
· 1000 Exabytes = 1 Zettabyte = 1021
· 1000 Zettabyte = 1 Yottabyte = 1024
· 1000 Yottabyte = 1 Brontobyte = 1028

A trillion terrabites is 109 * 1012
or 1021 or about a Zettabyte.

A google = 10100 so we are well short.
