IT GETS WORSE: Google, Microsoft, Apple Allowed Government To 'Watch Your Ideas Form As You Type'
Jun. 6, 2013, 6:19 PM
The National Security Agency and FBI have been engaging in a highly classified program that mines data from leading U.S. internet companies, according to a bombshell report in The Washington Post Thursday night.
The program is code-named PRISMand the Post reports that it was established in 2007. According to the report, the nine companies that "participate knowingly" in the program are Microsoft, Yahoo, Google, Facebook, PalTalk, AOL, Skype, YouTube, Apple.
The program has not been disclosed publicly, and is only being disclosed now after whistleblower revealed the program to the Post because of "horror" at its capabilities.
"They quite literally can watch your ideas form as you type," said the whistleblower, described as a career intelligence officer, in a truly harrowing quote.

The world has changed. We are so screwed.
USA = Airstrip One
It isn’t mining data to enforce laws. It’s to trap innocent people who post things that the feds don’t like. That way they don’t have to put themselves in danger going after real, violent criminals. They just have to arrest innocent people and proclaim that the arrest numbers are up.
It’s time to learn telepathy as far as privacy is concerned. The problem is that terrorists and other criminals may use it too.
It’s data mining to trip up people 20 years in the future. It’s preserved forever.
Who knows what political thoughts will be illegal in 20 years.
Somebody will have to stop those Conservatives.
Any conservative candidate 20 years from now will have all his current teenage scriblings and porn selections made available to the media.
As feared, this gets worse and worse, not unexpectedly.
If the average American accepts this, it is simply all over. Forget banana republic, the US has gone straight to fascism.
Any conservatives children will be denied medical care, schooling and ultimately food. Based on writings 20 years in the past.
Not just ‘Conservatives’. Ultimately this will be used on the left’s political enemies.
If you think it’s just ‘us’ they’re watching...LOL. Wonder what kind of dirt they have on the Kennedys. Or the Clintons. Or any other prominent dems.
And you know they know exactly which kids Sandusky molested and anyone else that participated as well.
Wonder what, exactly, they have on Roberts.
Add to his lies!
Rat in corner
More shoes to come?
Hmmmmm, started in 2007. That means GWB was President. But I HOPE someone will point out that, as of January 2007, the Dems were in charge of the House and the Senate!
Well they are dimocrats and vote for dimocrats and the government is communist dimocrats.
That would explain quite a few of their decisions wouldn't it?
I can’t imagine a closet big enough for the shoes we ALREADY have collected.
Don't forget that (ahem) "medical treatment" a couple of weeks after the fling with that Free Spirit in Abnormal Psych class back in 2017.
“...career intelligence officer...”
Yeah, CIA didn’t like the underside of your bus on Benghazi Obama.
“Wonder what they have on Roberts.”
That’s exactly what I thought.
Explains a lot. Except I still think he’s a scuzzball. If our brave men and women can face horror and fear in the face to protect this country, so could he.
Whatever he’s done is probably highly illegal. Likely complete with pics somewhere.
This statement is making more sense.
House Armed Services Committee lawmakers said late Wednesday that they had not seen the Guardian report, and so did not want to comment on it but a GOP committee aide said the leak of the document is problematic.
If the story proves accurate, we would have very serious concerns about the magnitude of the leak involved, the aide said.
Maybe this is why Boehner is always crying?
It’s time to go Galt
Why not have a day of online boycott. Like the great smoke out. Only with no online activity.
Or, do Alinsky on one of the companies involved. Single it out, freeze it, personalize it, etc. And boycott it.
I’m not sure if anything makes sense anymore although the Post Office may see an increase in letters. .
Mark my word. Verizon is just the tip of the iceberg
Complete disregard of the rule of law starting with the qualifications to be president
My first thought was that’s how they discovered Petraeus affair!
At this point, the government has been revealed to be involved in about every form of despicable and corrupt activity against the people one can imagine. I mean really, what's left?
What’s left is the murder of political opponents.
Coming in three... two...
Rest assured that EVERY single telephone carrier, internet provider, social network, credit card transaction, bank transaction, travel habits, driving habits, eating habits, drinking habits, pissing habits, sh!tting habits, you name it are being recorded as we type.
We are living under a MARXIST/COMMUNIST regime and most don’t even realize it. Sheeple if you will.
Sadly, you might be right. That is certainly the trajectory followed by the old Roman Republic as it slid into an imperial dictatorship.
Could I be early in line to say “We told you so”? Never trust lib commies. Never.
Shortage of food, energy, water!
Yep, Hitler would’ve loved to have this technology available, wouldn’t he?
Steve Jobs, died on Oct 05, 2012.
PRISM got access to APPLE in Oct 2012.
They did not get access until after he died.
I have been thinking of Rush’s, 2112:
We are the Priests, of the Temples of Syrinx
Our great computers fill the hallowed halls.
We are the Priests, of the Temples of Syrinx
All the gifts of life are held within our walls.
Look around this world we made
Equality our stock in trade
Come and join the Brotherhood of Man
Oh what a nice contented world
Let the banners be unfurled
Hold the Red Star proudly high in hand.
