Smart Meters Spying on Us?

Among the Wikileaks revelations, some of the most shocking concerned how our own devices – TVs, Skype, iphones, gaming consoles and smart phones – can monitor us. They can be turned on us to record what we are saying and kept in records.

Not only that, but we found out that the CIA has tools to control remotely chips in cars, trucks, planes, medical devices and hospital technology. In other words, they have the potential to assassinate people via these things.

Don’t forget about smart meters. MLGW assured us they could not be used to spy on us, deried doubters and laughed about their concerns – typical Alinsky tactic. From Wikileaks it looks like the potential is there.

At the least, Memphian Donna Bohannon, who has been following this smart meter problem very closely, writes that they have been causing a customers at an MLGW Board of Commissioners meeting feel they have been put in danger by them and that they have ruined appliances. Here’s a video of their complaints:

Meet the NSA Data Center

Have you heard of Bumblehive? Probably not. But it has heard of you.

Bumblehive is the code name for the Utah Data Center, the IC CNCI or Intelligence Community Comprehensive National Cyber security Initiative. In their websites words, the “NSA is the executive agent for the office of the director of National Intelligence (in the Obama years James Clapper) and is the lead agency at the center.” In other words, the place where the National Security Administration keeps all the phone calls, email and other information that it has surveilled. It has everything. Here’s a picture:

Although they say they do not surveil Americans, then why do they need so big a headquarters. Here’s more. I find it interesting considering they were discussing this in 2013.

In 2013, a blog called level9news.com had some serious comments about this:

Have we been misled into directly providing the NSA with every aspect of our personal lives? Was the ground work laid in 2004 to provide specific vehicles for the use of the general public many of which can be had for free or at a nominal cost to the subscribers?

Do we really believe the MSM claims that the NSA is monitoring each and every computer in the world and collecting data from over 5 billion individual sources? Or is this just another point of misdirection so we don’t look at the possibility that we are actually uploading our information unknowingly and voluntarily directly to an NSA facility?

What do we know:

1.The NSA data center was conceptualized in 2004 under the code name “Bumblehive”
2.The NSA data center construction broke ground on January 7th of 2011 in Bluffdale, Utah. This 1.5 million sq. foot, unprecedented, ridiculously expensive $2 billion government project is right on schedule for it’s official opening in September 2013.
3.It is said that this data center is capable of storing a yottabyte of data. A yottabyte is a septillion bytes – a number so large that no one has yet coined a term for the next higher magnitude. Prior to the yottabyte, the largest unit of measure for data was an exabyte…one million exabytes equals one yottabyte. Eric Schmidt, the former CEO of Google estimated that the total of all human knowledge created from the dawn of man up to the present, if digitized would total 5 exabytes, yet the NSA is currently planning a second data center in Fort Meade, Maryland projected to be 2/3s the size of the data center in Utah at a cost to the taxpayers of approximately $1 billion – we are paying for our own enslavement and cyber prison facilities.

What else do we know:

​Facebook a free service for people to upload every aspect of their waking life was founded in 2004 by Mark Zuckerberg– the same year the NSA data center, project Bumblehive was conceived.

In 2009, cloud based computing reached a turning point whereby the trend turned from on site/off site data backup and storage to cloud based technology. Coincidentally, in 2009 Windows launched Azure – a Windows based cloud platform.

For the past three years, the phenomenal push for on line storage, back ups and distributed applications has been on the rise…you can’t listen to the radio without hearing a commercial every 15 minutes for these services.

Are you seeing a correlation here? The NSA project Bumblehive was conceived in 2004. ALL of
these online cloud services were founded between 2004 and 2011…..coincidence? Or, was this a pre
planned groundwork laid out to put in place systems to have you voluntarily and unknowingly upload
all of your personal, private information to the NSA?

Explains a lot doesn’t it? Does anyone doubt that Trump was on their radar?

Tap, Tap, Tap, Drip, Drip, Drip

The tweet over the weekend by President Trump suggesting that Obama bugged him dominated the news this weekend. Reporters were quick to say Trump lit into his advisors before he left for Palm Beach. They giddily trumpeted this. CNN even had a video:

Frankly this doesn’t seem that terrible to me. Looks like another instance of the media wanting to push a meme that Trump is an out of control angry meglomaniac who doesn’t know what he’s doing and that his administration is in chaos.

Was Trump acting rashly by writing that “unsubstantiated” tweet? Was he foolish or is something else going on?

John Hayward at Breitbart posited this:

It’s possible one reason Trump issued his explosive tweets on surveillance was to make everyone put up or shut up. That might already be working, as some of the more aggressive dealers in unsubstantiated innuendo are suddenly admitting they don’t have any actual evidence. There can’t be any hard evidence if Trump is super-duper wrong about Obama administration surveillance.

Until now, Democrats and their media have been pleased to create the impression that all kinds of wiretapping operations were conducted against the Trump campaign, uncovering many scandalous, possibly illegal connections. Only by reading those articles carefully does one discover the sources are highly speculative and the evidence is thin at best.

[…] Whatever President Trump’s intentions were in using Twitter to touch off this firestorm, one of the immediate effects has been letting the gas out of all those speculative Trump stories. The Democratic media is now furiously working to prove all of its own previous coverage of the Trump-Russia allegations was little more than idle speculation, every bit as lacking in hard evidence as Trump’s accusation that Obama was tapping his phones.

After months of unfounded allegations and badly sourced speculation intended to cripple his administration, maybe Trump wanted to prove that only one side of the partisan divide is permitted to make “wild allegations.” Obama’s plants in the Deep State can leak whatever they please, law and truth be damned. They can get an avalanche of hostile coverage moving with a few phone calls or emails. The media feels no contrition when the story turns out to be exaggerated or completely false, eagerly turning to the same Obama holdovers as sources for the next big phony scoop.

No one on Trump’s team, including the president himself, is allowed to reciprocate in kind. We are meant to feel bottomless outrage that Trump would level unsubstantiated allegations against Obama, but apparently, Obama’s minions can launch a constant barrage of unsubstantiated allegations against Trump.

Intentionally or accidentally, Trump just forced the press to admit how weak the bulk of those allegations were.

But what about this weekend when former DNI chief James Clapper denied any wiretapping and FBI Director James Comey – not through a direct quote but through a surrogate to the New York Times – also refuted any wiretapping.

Clapper is a known liar who told Congress in 2013 that the NSA did not collect data on citizens, a claim even they knew was false. His words are worthless.

But why did Comey refute?

Blog readers had different answers.

“IMHO Comey is the one who told Trump about the tapping, as it wasn’t the FBI who ordered it, but the DoJ. That’s why he’s asking the DoJ to refute the claims, not the FBI, so as not to incriminate his organization,” said one.
At the American thinker blog a writer says, “So Comey wanted a denial from outside the bureau to avoid the charge that any rejection of the Trump wiretapping allegation was self-serving.

“DoJ has so far failed to issue a statement of denial, which is not surprising, given the political hot potato Comey has dropped into their lap. The career employees at Justice are passing the buck on taking responsibility for a denial while the political appointees for the Department are being blocked by Senate Democrats from taking office. Quite literally, there’s no one at Justice who wants the job of placing the department on the record that no such wiretapping took place.”

And yet another reader’s plausible explanation for all the events:

“I think that the former AG and her Deputy, Sally Yates, went through the NSA in terms of the FISA request. Comey is telling us the truth that neither he nor the FBI was involved with any of it. I think when Michael Rogers met with our President on November 18th, he was there to inform the President Elect that he and the folks at the NSA were responsible for all types of surveillance on him. He decided to come clean and let the President know that he had absolutely no choice because the AG through the President (Obama) wanted this. I think President Trump thanked him for the info and asked him to remain quiet about it.”
Rick Moran at American thinker adds:

Quite literally, there’s no one at Justice who wants the job of placing the department on the record that no such wiretapping took place.

Comey has managed to get both sides angry at him over the past year. He failed to recommend indicting Hillary Clinton but then re-opened the investigation just days before the election. Is this request for a statement a “betrayal” of Trump, as Drudge suggests in his headline (“Comey Turns on Trump”)? It is if you believe liberals who think Comey was in Trump’s corner during the campaign. Otherwise, this is an attempt by Comey to cover his own – and the FBI’s – ass in the wiretapping matter.

We knew when Trump won the election that our side was going to be in for a big fight with Obama remnants and the Deep State. It was never going to be easy to dislodge them or that they would go without using every trick they could to hurt our side.

No one needs to be discourage by all this. It’s the only way to drain the swamp.

Treachery

The stream of attacks on Trump and his cabinet officials will not abate. We see this again this morning with the attempt to neuter Jeff Sessions in his role as Attorney General. Allegations that he conspired with the Russians are ridiculous, but it doesn’t take anything but the flimsiest of accusations to get a meme going viral.

Obama’s behind it I believe. He was never going to give up power graciously. The latest story about him taking up residence in his new home – and that former advisor Valerie Jarrett is living there with the family, too, confirms that they are up to something.

Obama and BFF Iranian born Jarrett

The Daily Mail explained that he’s getting the old gang together. Odd isn’t it, that Michelle and their daughters are OK with a stranger living in their house. Really it’s creepy.

Barack Obama is turning his new home in the posh Kalorama section of the nation’s capital – just two miles away from the White House – into the nerve center of the mounting insurgency against his successor, President Donald J. Trump.

Obama’s goal, according to a close family friend, is to oust Trump from the presidency either by forcing his resignation or through his impeachment.

And Obama is being aided in his political crusade by his longtime consigliere, Valerie Jarrett, who has moved into the 8,200-square-foot, $5.3-million Kaloroma mansion with the former president and Michelle Obama, long time best friends.

Jarrett played a vital – if at times low-key – role in the Obama presidency. She lived in the White House, dined with the Obamas, and help shape his domestic and foreign policies.

The former president has set up an office on the West End of the national’s capitol, where he recently hosted an open house for his White House staff – including Joe Biden, Susan Rice, Josh Earnest and Jarrett.

But the office, part of his post presidency perks, cannot be used for political purposes. The rent on his home is paid by him personally.

On Tuesday, former Attorney General Eric Holder revealed that Obama is indeed getting closer to making his public reappearance in politics.

‘It’s coming. He’s coming,’ Holder said speaking to reporters. ‘And he’s ready to roll.’

According to the family source, Obama was at first reluctant to assume the role of leader of the opposition.

‘No longer the most powerful man in the world, he was just observing Trump and not liking what he saw,’ said the source.

‘He was weary and burned out after eight years in office. But Valerie convinced him that he didn’t have any choice if he wanted to save his legacy. And, as usual, he bowed to Valerie’s political wisdom and advice.’

In his only public comment against Trump since leaving the presidency, Obama came out in support of the protests opposing President Donald Trump’s executive order to restrict immigration from predominantly Muslim countries.

A spokesman said the former president thinks they’re ‘citizens exercising their Constitutional right to assemble, organize and have their voices heard by their elected officials is exactly what we expect to see when American values are at stake.’

Jarrett played a vital—if at times hidden—role in the Obama presidency. She lived in the White, dined with the Obamas, and help shape his domestic and foreign policies

After Obama left office, Jarrett moved all her White House belonging into the Kalorama mansion.

‘There was never any doubt that Valerie would have a suite of rooms in the house that the Obama’s are renting,’ said the source. ‘Obama trusts her judgment more than any other person on the planet, as does Michelle.

Obama doesn’t make a decision without her.’

Spurred on by Jarrett and Michelle, the ex-president has come to embrace his role as the leader of the opposition against Trump, whose policies he loathes and whose presidency he considers illegitimate.

‘He is going to use his immense popularity with the half of the country that identifies as liberals and progressives,’ said the Obama family source. ‘Millions of Americans are energized and ready to take to the streets to oppose Trump, but they need to be organized and have their anger focused and directed.

‘Obama is dismayed at the way Trump is tearing down his legacy—ObamaCare, the social safety net and the welcome mat for refugees he put in place,’ the source continued.

Trump’s cabinet picks are also problematic for the former president, especially Jeff Sessions as Attorney General, whom Obama regards as too racially insensitive to be in charge of the Civil Rights division at Justice.

Leaving Jim Comey as FBI Director is another thorn in Obama’s side. He blames Comey for announcing that he was reopening the FBI investigation into Hillary’s emails eleven days before the election, which, in Obama’s view, was an irresponsible act that helped elect Trump.

Photo Set Up?

Advisor to the president Kellyanne Conway is getting skewered for this picture:

The Daily Mail ran it with this headline: “Make yourself at home, Kellyanne! White House adviser is taken to task after she makes herself comfortable on the Oval Office couch while wearing her heels as Trump hosts leaders of black colleges”

Liberal pearl clutchers are aghast! How dare she! Twitter has been full of comments that it was disrespectful.
One was quoted in the Daily Mail, “Even so-called Kellyanne fans were dismayed by the lack of respect shown by the President’s counselor: ‘I’m a Kellyanne fan, but that is appalling. My mother never let us put our feet on the furniture! She sits in a desk chair with both feet & shoes bundled up under her in full view of the public as she scrolls through her phone.’

Well.
We don’t know if the person really is a Kellyanne fan now do we? Lefties love to go trolling against Trump.

But say she truly is a fan. I think many are missing the point. I think it could be intentional that she posed like that.

Why? How often does anything Republicans do with black leaders get attention? Um, hardly ever. The media likes to brush that under the sofa. Maybe Ms. Conway and the other very smart people in the Trump team thought that this was a good way to call attention to this meeting.

Do you think it would have been splashed across the internet any other way?

It’s harmless, really, but it makes the point that President Trump is not going to ignore the concerns of black people.

Meet the New Boss…

And yes, he’s the same as the old boss.

I’m talking about the new DNC Chairman Thomas Perez. He’s a Clinton/Obama person just like Debbie Wasserman Schultz and Donna Brazile are.

He’s a fan of big money from people like George Soros and the other SJW corporation/lobbyists moneypockets. He was not the choice of the Bernie Sanders wing of the Democrat party, and they erupted on twitter after his election. They started a #DemExit on it. Many complained about rigging of the election, which, I think, is a valid concern.

For instance, after the first ballot, Perez had 213.5 votes (Democrats abroad and in territories get half a vote) to Ellison’s 200. The winning threshold is 214.5. The Hill covered it and said the tension in the room was off the charts and the room was stunned. (Perhaps that Ellison was behind?) Then Perez managed to get some more votes to win 235 to 200.

Evidently calls were made and favors were called in to assure a Perez victory.

By the way, KKK former leader David Duke backed Ellison.

Michelle Malkin had Perez’s number in 2013:

Even though Perez made Ellison his second in command, one wonders how that will work. It’s kind of like the Miss Congeniality award. Will he get a title and not much else? Won’t that irk his supporters more?

We’ll see.
After Perez said, “They’re going to study this era in American history. Democrats will lead resistance,” Malkin tweeted: “If new #DNCChair Tom Perez jabber-shouts & flappy-flails like this for the next 4 years, Trump 2020 is a shoo-in.”
