The NSA is really trying to under mine people wanting the spying to stop. The NSA seems to be pushing ideas to people to give them false security that the NSA can't spy on them if they do a simple change.

Case one.
A Font to Discourage NSA Snooping

A ex NSA contractor designs a new Font.

Picture of the new Font.

The only problem is all text on the internet is a number. The letter you see or the word your see is a number. To translate from one language to another the simply look for the language version of the number your now reading it in the language you know. The Font scam is just that a scam. They don't read your fonts. The system is automated to read the numbered meaning of what you type not the letters or fonts you use. Basically you have a number "123456" and that number means "something" no matter what language you set your computer to post it as. When they want to look for keywords such as "bomb" they put in the numbered meaning of the word "bomb" "9999" and no matter what language or font you translate it to it is still bomb in every language.

Case two

Don't blame the corporations for the surveillance state

I think this is funny. Because if you really think back to what happened in America and all of this spying on people you will go back to Hillary Clinton and Walmart. Yes Walmart. Walmart setup a network for tracking supplies. Spying on Competitors. Spying on employees. They had one of the first private security agencies that was owned personal by Walmart operating over the entire globe. The started trying to limit the explict lyrics on music. They started hunting down copy right infringement and fake products. They put in video systems in stores that can track customers as they walk around the store. A video system that can spot a item automatically if it is left in on the floor. Facial recognition software to spot shop lifters. They do back ground checks on future suppliers and there companies. They do background checks on all employees. That is in house back ground checks. They don't hire out to do it. Walmart even helped the Casino business build there spy networks in the Casinos watching dealers and players and spotting known cheaters before they make into the building. Spotting devices attached to machines automatically by comparing the known image of what a the view should look like to what it does look like over and over. That way when some thing changes it flags the change for inspection.

So don't blame the corporations? They created this monster long before most people know. Just follow Hillary. Yes Walmart is not all she helped when it came to spying. What about New York City. New York City is the worst of the worst when it comes to spying and corporate connected spying. How about how the Banks worked with the New York City police an d sat in the HQ to spy on Occupy Wall Street. And how about the NYPD TARU unit which is ran by a CIA guy who can't be over seen by the Commission who are supposed to do over sight of the NYPD. They don't have high enough clearance to over see TARU.

Just follow Hillary. And Chelsea to I guess. Chelsea is connected to McKinsey & Company who is tied to a lot of spying in other countries. Chelsea is also on the board of IAC. IAC owns a lot of the internet sites on the web.

Don't blame the corporations? The government has all ways gone through the corporations in order to bypass the laws. Just look at InQTel funded Facebook. Ever read that robots text page?

Do you know what that means? It is where they sell the rights to the government to spy on every thing in there database. The government is the third party buyer. And all of these companies are doing it. It is a lot of money. How about those credit monitoring companies? They do it to. You pay for them to spy on you. George Zimmerman worked for Digital Risk LLC spying on mortgages for the government. They are spying on every thing through the corporation s and third party sharing. The meta data the government collects just puts it all in a easy to access software. Think of all that meta data as a link to a website.

Several people (conspiracy nuts of course) are questioning this Power Grid Drill, coming to all of us Nov 13-14. Canada and Mexico are supposed to be also having a drill with us. Ive heard it will be a N. America electrical black out. But, so far my info is a little sketchy about details, but the original article was in the New York Times.

So, the nuts are wondering if when all the systems are rebooted and turned back on, if we will have a new and improved, China style Internet. Software being added to control the Internet.

Im not smart enough to know if its even possible, but you should google seach it for yourself.

Who knows what is up the NSA's sleeve???

Glad you posted this. The font thing is just absolutely silly. The NSA isn't going to see your font. I imagine that it would probably looked like what gets delivered in a packet sniffing program. This site has an example of what sniffed data looks like: No fonts. It's not like a RAT where they are looking at your screen and what you're typing real time (maybe they can do that, too, but who knows). Data packets are what they're most likely getting. So much for reason taking place at

Interesting about Chelsea Clinton's associations there. If you think about it, a number of those services are online dating. There is a tremendous amount of information that people will willingly provide in the hopes of attaining a good tussle in the sheets or love and most of those services are free, are they not? Is it simply advertising revenue that is allowing them to operate or are they assisting people out of the goodness of their own hearts? Information is valuable even if it is information that says "So-so will lie about his/her weight while in the pursuit of a hottie and shave off 50 lbs." Information isn't just gathered by the NSA. It's gathered up by marketers and corporations en mass in the attempt to find out what it is you like, what you want, what you could use that you don't know you want, whether you'd be able to buy it or not, and what kind of psyche you have so that they can make better advertisements that stimulate the urge to buy in you.

I agree completely, assuming this is a font to be use directly in a web page (not in an image in a web page) then the font used would be irrelevant as the text being read would be directly from the source code of the actual page.

On a side note, even if the text were being used in an image there are several image reading scripts available on the web that can read, interpret and bypass complex captcha challenges therefore i assume they would easily be able to circumvent such 'camouflage'.

Mhmm. There's also one other fact to consider in regards to what the NSA is "seeing". The other thing that points to the NSA not using visual images of text would also be all the articles pertaining to the NSA's ability to decrypt even complex encryption.

Here's an example of Base64 encryption, which is an old encryption and I'm pretty sure the "base" in it is because it's pretty basic, lol:

VGhpcyBpcyBjYWxsZWQgQmFzZTY0IGVuY3J5cHRpb24gYW5kIGlzIGEga25vd24gZW5jcnlwdGlvbiB0aGF0IHdhcyBvbmNlIGNvbW1vbmx5IHVzZWQuICBUaGlzIGlzIHdoYXQgaXQgbG9va3MgbG lrZS4=

The NSA could easily read that. Font most definitely doesn't matter.

Have some information for people that should show you how the number meaning of words in translations is what the governments use when looking at what you put on the internet.

Afghanistan war starts. At that time the spy machine was not in place. The spy machine was handicapped in a way. That did not have a true international standard set in place on text in order too read every thing in Afghanistan. So 2001 war starts. 2002 Afghan Transitional Administration is put in charge. 2003 the United Nations Development Programme hires Michael Everson to create the code for major languages of Afghanistan (Pashto, Dari, and Uzbek), co-authored by Roozbeh Pournader, which was endorsed by the Ministry of Communications of the Afghan Transitional Islamic Administration. Then after it is put in place as a standard in Afghanistan. 2004 Karzai is voted in as leader. The spy machine has been put in full effect before they allow the puppet to take the stage.

War in Afghanistan (2001–present)

Michael Everson

Universal Character Set

China has tried to buck the system with there own standard.

Golden Shield Project (Chinas great firewall) started in 1998.

2000 GB18030 is set as Chinese government standard for there code bucking the international standard.

2003 Chinas Great Firewall goes in full effect.
