It isn't the first time the multinational corporation known as google as worked hand in hand with spooky intelligence agencies in data mining us
"The company, which is called Recorded Future, offers a technology for predictive analysis which lets people to visualize the future, past, or
In-Q-Tel, which develops and invests in technology under the aegis of the CIA and Google Ventures each have seats on Recorded Future's board. Both
companies have been "very helpful," providing advice to the Cambridge, Mass.-based start-up, Chief Executive Christopher Ahlberg, an ex-Swedish Army
ranger, according to Wired.
The amount of the investments is undisclosed, but the article suggests that it was less than $10 million each and was given in 2009.
This was not the first time Google and the CIA have cooperated on a project. Google sold servers to intelligence agencies and reportedly sought aid
from the NSA after it was targeted in attacks said to have originated in China, CNET reports. In-Q-Tel also had provided backing to Keyhole before
Google acquired the mapping company to use in its technology in Google Earth.
Wired notes, however, that this may be the first time that the CIA and Google have funded the same startup simultaneously, a happenstance that has the
potential to cause some public relations grief for a company that so publicly tries to portray itself as aligned with the good guys."
Here are some links showing the software the CIA/Google have invested in and just a little of what it is capable of doing.
Look at whose maps recorded future is using, googles!
Corporations have become all powerful and now you got the NSA spying on us, google spying on us, Cia spying on us, and these are just the ones we know
about. All on the taxpayers dime to! Obviously your government has gone rogue and yet nobody cares. This is called crony capitalism people.
Definition of 'Crony Capitalism'
A description of capitalist society as being based on the close relationships between businessmen and the state. Instead of success being determined
by a free market and the rule of law, the success of a business is dependent on the favoritism that is shown to it by the ruling government in the
form of tax breaks, government grants and other incentives.
Investopedia explains 'Crony Capitalism'
Both socialists and capitalists have been at odds with each other over assigning blame to the opposite group for the rise of crony capitalism.
Socialists believe that crony capitalism is the inevitable result of pure capitalism. This belief is supported by their claims that people in power,
whether business or government, look to stay in power and the only way to do this is to create networks between government and business that support
On the other hand, capitalists believe that crony capitalism arises from the need of socialist governments to control the state. This requires
businesses to operate closely with the government to achieve the greatest success.
Apparently I am a socialist because I do believe capitalism almost always evolves into crony capitalism. Hm... So be it then. 1984 was supposed to be
a fictional story, not a how to guide to governing America.
