Corporate America took the ticket

Not that most of it hadn't already done so, but it's useful to understand that much of what is publicly considered to be "success" in the United States has nothing to do with competition in the marketplace, but rather, secret government funding:
By midway through the Obama administration, the CIA and FBI were creating “extensive digital legends with increasing sophistication,” as one former senior official puts it, with cooperation from key government agencies like the Social Security Administration, Health and Human Services and the IRS.

U.S. intelligence agencies also work with “friendly digital companies,” like commercially available ancestry databases, to alter personally identifying information, say former officials, and also backdate work histories. Concerned about digital leakage, and cognizant of the need to strictly quarantine deep-cover intelligence officials from their organizations, U.S. officials have adopted a strategy of “eclipsing” these individuals slowly into their cover identities before they are allowed to undertake their missions.

The CIA and FBI both concluded that every person connected to these organizations’ “black side” undercover programs had to be completely sealed off from the rest of their colleagues, say former officials. This firewall is an immensely complex undertaking in a world where electronic emissions from a single cellphone traveling, say, from CIA headquarters in Virginia to an unmarked office building nearby could blow multiple undercover operations. The FBI has also struggled with this transition. As of a few years ago, “none of this was completed yet, and none of it was even remotely being done easily,” says a former senior official.

The CIA, at least, had its own past practices to draw from, especially in its training of NOCs, say former officials. Years ago, the school for NOCs was entirely quarantined from that for normal future CIA operations officers, who undertake rigorous instruction at “the Farm,” a Williamsburg, Va.-area base, say two former senior officials. NOCs “never came to the East Coast” and were trained at separate secret facilities, says one of these former officials. But because of their often “rebellious” attitudes in the field, and in order to “increase their behavioral consistency,” senior CIA officials decided to move their instruction to the Farm. This move produced better-trained NOCs but also increased the threat of exposure. As of recently, the programs were sealed off from each other again, says a former senior official.

The pressures of the digital age have led the CIA to favor flexibility and deniability. The agency has formed a new reserve officer program to allow spies to work in the private sector, especially the tech industry, says a former intelligence official. The program is designed to allow those operatives to maintain their clearances so they can return seamlessly to the agency after a few years, says this person.

Another measure the CIA has used involves paying companies to gather intelligence for the government without even knowing it. In the last several years, the CIA has ramped up its use of “cutouts” to pay third parties to gather intelligence for them unwittingly, posing as data brokers looking into trends in the oil and gas industries, for example, says the same former official.
That's how Facebook, Google, and other companies became so dominant. They possessed an advantage similar to the one that state-owned corporations have in communist companies; they didn't need to actually sell anything to anyone in order to generate income. As would-be competitors to YouTube have learned, it's very difficult to compete with companies that can afford to operate hundreds of millions of dollars in the red every year without being forced to shut down.

Will it stop a single one of them utilising the tracking technologies that they call 'daily essentials' and 'a human right'? ... nope.

Dark money is responsible for a lot of things. The Fed just prints it and hands it to state govs like California for plans in the corporate realm. Honest weights and measures is a long gone concept.

There are people I follow that have been informed they are unbannable. But that wouldn't be by someone like Jack Dorsey. People in the spyworld have the tech he uses. Q bragged about having their algorithms. What can they do when the government that built them protects people on their systems that they won't? All they can do is try and get back control of the top levels of gov. That's why it's important to crush them properly over these 2 Trump terms and do an anti-trust on the information monopoly of the mainstream media.

Would be very interested to know what the payoff has been for all that cash outlay. Suspect much of it is used to keep legacy America in the dark about the activities of those opposing it and keeping pols in line. In the US of course, because what fun would it be to only operate outside conus as required by law?

There's a throw away line in an episode of "Person of Interest." The ex-cia computer genius tells the the field operative that it used to be very hard to gather intimate data about everyone, but then he invented social media.

"The CIA’s National Resources Division, the agency’s clandestine domestic operational wing."

You can see from this alone in the Obama Era, that combined with their Stagehand/Tech compliance and working directly with the FBI that you can set people up, like a sophisticated white people version that LAPD ran on blacks and their gangs. Then the mainstream media gets to dirty them up afterwards.

The spying and insider companies totally interwoven. You need to take the "ticket" to survive at all in more and more endeavors, especially tech, yet they include a big portion of healthcare and other areas.

Obviously, the CEOs and upper management of major Internationals are in this "club." Hoards of resignations -- reasons?

Competition is for the proles. The self-anointed ones would no more play by the same rules than they'd eat using the same cutlery.

Burn it all down, ideally with them inside.

In socialism, the government is very forward about controlling the economy. Free market economies stand in stark contrast, however, because the government is very secretive about controlling the economy.

Another knock against Libertarianism, I’d say, mostly because it never seems to have existed.

The more I hear about Big Tech, the more I envy China and Russia.

If YouTube struggles to stay fiscally solvent and has to be propped up by Google what does that say about the porn industry? Who's propping up those websites? And why?

Blogger Monotonous Languor January 01, 2020 10:09 AM  

An organization which not only takes government money but can't exist without it, is a de facto arm of the government, and therefore cannot infringe on speech else they violate the First Amendment. Any lawyer with an ounce of intelligence, whose thinking wasn't hobbled by case law, ought to be able to successfully make that argument stick in court. Since it has yet to be made, it only proves what stinking slime lawyers are.

Interesting article.

What really blew intelligence agencie's minds was how quickly the Mossad assassination team in Dubai was made.

And if the NSA can't even protect the crown jewels of their hacking tools, what chance is their of protecting anything else? Just getting access to track payments, would disclose a spy. This can either be on government spy agency side, the IRS, or on the bank side.

The comment about a US spy near Putin is suspect, and makes me question the purpose of the entire article. The spy Casus belli against the GE, seems to be insider US Elite propaganda, where the "spy" had low levels of access. The supposed "spy" is living in the US reportedly under their real name.

Remember in the weeks of strategic delay before the Kavanaugh hearing how there was only 1 single photo of Christine Crazy-Ford on the internet? I always thought it must have been quite a multi-organizational task to scrub the internet of her information in the months preceding that charade.

I hope we someday know all the manipulation (financial and otherwise) that is going on by the corporate spider web extension of the deep state. Sadly, we will probably never know. But it is good enough that God knows, and there will be a reckoning.

Proverbs 11:1-5 "Dishonest scales are an abomination to the LORD, but an accurate weight is His delight...The righteousness of the blameless will direct his way aright, But the wicked will fall by his own wickedness."

The infamous Theranos obviously had this, its board consisting of a who's-who of Foggy Bottom bureaucracy. Everyone focuses on snake oil saleswoman Elizabeth Holmes, her crazy eyes, and her unnaturally deep voice. But she's the frontwoman.

That company somehow survived for ten years prior to having even a fake product. Doing what, exactly? Military R&D? When they finally did have a product of sorts, they had the political influence to change Arizona law to allow them into Walgreens to offer useless services.

This is all fobbed off on her alleged charm. But everyone who sees or hears her can tell she's a weirdo. No it that she didn't con a lot of peopl, but that has to be secondary. I think she was picked to be Female Healthcare Steve Jobs, because she was young and photogenic. Whoever picked her, that's who wasted our time. And that person had to be Deep State.

@6- It's easy with gangs, considering their priors and low I.Q.s. But they also possess omerta and "IDGAF."

on the other hand, white people possess altruism, trustingness, naivety, and ignorance of the world of dirty doings.

"You need to take the "ticket" to survive at all in more and more endeavors, especially tech, yet they include a big portion of healthcare and other areas."

Social media, mass communications, all centrally organized healthcare, finance and banking, education at all levels. They'd be boots on the ground with the food supplies as well, but having dirty boots is anathema, so they try to chokehold crops through controlling the seed. They don't have a good hold on most meats and never have AFAIK, that might be part of the reason vegetarianism and "meat alternatives" are pushed so hard.

Designated figurehead and fall girl.

My question about that fraud was why was it allowed to fail? Had the scam run its course? Did she get too big for her britches? Did The Cabal decide to burn one of the figures involved and she and Theranos were just collateral damage?

I liked this part:

But because of their often “rebellious” attitudes in the field, and in order to “increase their behavioral consistency,” senior CIA officials decided to move their instruction to the Farm.

What I'm reading is that some of these agents had a nasty habit of actually doing their jobs, as several agents also apparently did during the Mueller sham, instead of blind obedience to the Narrative. And try as they might, they just can't seem to overcome the trade-off between competence and loyalty, no matter how many H-1Bs and Women Of Color they hire.

There's a trend here downunder, for those with spare cash, to install pricey solar powered tesla units in the home, a way of making sure the spa never cools but the bollie stays chilled, even if the power goes out.

I see them blinking away in the corner with their soft blue lights, quietly watching everything from power to drinking water levels, calculating how long that will last at current usage, and all displayed simply on a comforting nightlight screen, so easy a child could understand it. Of course it's also connected to wifi, as are the security cameras, so you can monitor it no matter where you are holidaying in the world.

Me, I prefer to check my water in the old fashion manner, by looking in the tank. My spa, it runs on fire. Travel overseas, not anymore, except maybe across the ditch to our big brother Australia, not like you can't row back.

The whole libertarian talking point of "private corporations" is retarded on its face. All those "private" LLCs. I hadn't realized that completely obvious point until relatively recently, much to my chagrin. Better late than never.

No person not working for govt should have clearance. It should be reobtained upon reentry. Any person with clearance should be considered in govt employ. No more finks trading on this credential / status on corporate media.

Deeper questions:

How far down does it go, organizationally? How far down the org charts, and how far down the "Fortune x" rankings?

I wonder if this is the reason Youtube has changed their policy to reserve the right to close accounts which aren't "commercially viable" ... if the CIA money is getting cut off, that will greatly limit their ability to store and stream cat videos, and channels which do nothing more than paste together videos from other channels.

Blogger tublecane January 01, 2020 11:11 PM  

@29- Probably not, as YouTube could already shut any channel it wants down for any reason it could cook up. If it was worried about money it needn't signal that to us.

Blogger Akulkis January 02, 2020 12:12 AM  

I think it's a subtle way of saying, "listen up, content creators -- stop making crap and start making things that will keep viewer's attention long enough to sit through full commercials with no "skip" button" while simultaneously trying to conceal their weak financial position, and how much of it is dependent upon money from the CIA, MI6, and intel/covert-action organizations.

If cash is all it takes, what would keep Facebook from drinking up data then dumping it into China?

Blogger Johnny B January 02, 2020 8:33 AM  

Don't forget companies like ADP, which is essentially an arm of the government. It collects and reports on economic data and has access to financial and tax records for many large companies, and their employees.

I heard last night that they can essentially allow the government go shut down a growing company that doesn't comply with a reporting service like theirs. Basically, no success without taking the ticket.

It also streamlines a company's ability to hire foreign workers with neat little software packages that make it as easy as hiring domestic.

Generally, government cannot hire competent people. That's why the agencies hire contractors: they are less poisoned by affirmative action and regulations.

Alphabet is the parent company of Google and many others. The CIA, FBI, NSA and more, are often referred to as the alphabet soup organizations. Could they have been hiding their involvement in plain sight?

Hello friends,
I'm a little ashamed to tell such a story. But I would like to share with you a great resource. I've had problems since my sexual organ was too small. I've been worried about this and tried to rectify the situation by means of pumps and tablets. Because of the tablets, which I ordered, I had complications and I was in the hospital for some time after that I gave up trying to increase my penis. But once I found Dr adam herbal cream. My first result was: plus 3 centimeters after 2weeks of usage. If you want to know more details and how you can enlarge your penis bigger, I recommend you to contact Dr adam today, email address adamokpoko@gmail.com or add him on whatsapp line +2348151731392.
