Really, rooting around for all the government connections to google could take a whole thread in itself and probably has more then once on ATS.
How right you are, and funny you should mention this because I was thinking the same thing and set out to see if there was anything, other than my own
feeling, that there was.
I started with the Google Board of Directors
, deciding to focus on Eric E.
Schmidt, Executive Chairman mainly because of this bit listed in his professional bio:
As executive chairman, he is responsible for the external
matters of Google: building partnerships and broader business relationships, government outreach and technology thought leadership
Further in his bio it states that he is the Chairman of the Board for an organization I had never heard of, New America Foundation. Wondering what
they did.. I followed my curiosity. Through the New America Foundation there are some heavy hitting folks connected to Mr. Schmidt.
The New America Foundation ( website
) seems to be yet another not-for-profit public policy think tank.
Whoopie... we have loads of those, right?. But when you start to take a look at their Board of Directors... THAT'S where things get a bit
Here is the list for the New American Foundation's Board of Directors
. Let's pull a few names:
David G. Bradley
He is a member of the Trilateral Commission and the Council on Foreign Relations.
In running this down it turns out that he is not listed as a member of the Trilateral Commission any longer. (To see the current list of
Trilateral Commision members, click on the link at the bottom of this page
) While he
is not listed, the following NAF board member is.......
And Jonathan Soros
, son of George Soros
Now, I am not saying that anything nefarious will come from Google's purchase of Boston Dynamics, that's for the future to determine. However, the
connections that I found through just one Google board member and his connections with just one other organization is enough to make my DPEAS (Doom
Porn Emergency Alert System) to go on stand by. I think it bears watching at the very least.
