Google has spent the last decade building databases on everything, including each and every computer-using American citizen. Now it intends to join forces with the United States Military to put all that info to good use. The giant “swooshing sound” you are hearing right now is the major leap forward of the Mark of the Beast.

The DC: Google CEO Larry Page has rapidly positioned Google to become an indispensable U.S. military contractor. Google recently purchased Boston Dynamics, a robotics pioneer that produces amazing humanoid robots for the U.S. Defense Department.

This development invites attention to Google’s broader military contracting ambitions — especially since Boston Dynamics is the eighth robotics company that Google has bought in the last six months.

Just like drones are the future of air warfare, humanoid robots and self-driving vehicles will be the future of ground warfare according to U.S. defense plans.

There are many other reasons why the U.S. military is on path to become Google’s single largest customer. Likewise these reasons indicate Google has a closer working relationship with the NSA than it acknowledges publicly.

First, consider the military value of Google’s research and development efforts and the military contracting pipeline revenue it could represent.

Page created Google X, which is Google’s secretive research and development lab tasked with pursuing “moon-shot” technology breakthroughs. So far, Google X is best known for its earth-bound self-driving cars and Google Glass.

Tellingly, the purpose of the original “moon-shots” by the Soviet Union and America was military. The two Cold War superpowers were in a “space race” to publicly showcase the technological and military supremacy of their rival ideologies.

Simply, America’s Cold War “moon-shot” was about winning the military space and arms race with the former Soviet Union.

Even more tellingly, the greatest application for most all of Google X’s “moon-shot” technological efforts — are military. Like drones, self-driving vehicles, and robot soldiers could enhance military surveillance and payload delivery while reducing risks to military personnel.

Google Glass’ advances in wearable augmented reality could offer American soldiers tactical advantages over enemy combatants. Google’s Project Loon could quickly provide a supplemental battlefield bandwidth advantage in remote areas.

Second, Google’s personnel hiring signals its aspirations for a closer Google-military relationship

In 2012, Google hired Regina Dugan, the head of DOD’s Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA), DOD’s in-house “moon-shot” idea factory. At the time a Google spokesperson said: “Regina is a technical pioneer who brought the future of technology to the military during her time at DARPA.  She will be a real asset to Google.”

Simply, few people could have a better insider knowledge of the U.S. military’s future technology needs that Google could exploit than Ms. Dugan.

Third, Google has a long history of working for, and with, the NSA and the other U.S. intelligence services.

In 2004, Google purchased satellite mapping company Keyhole, which was strategically important enough to be funded by the CIA’s investment fund In-Q-Tel. Google turned the aptly-named “Keyhole” surveillance capability into the wildly popular Google Earth and Google Maps service used by over a billion people and over one million websites.

In 2008, the San Francisco Chronicle reported that U.S. spy agencies use “Google equipment as the backbone of Intellipedia, a network aimed at helping agents share intelligence.” The article also reported that Google had a support contract with the NSA.

In 2010, the Washington Post reported that Google worked with the NSA to figure out how Chinese hackers broke into Google. The New York Times later reported that those Chinese hackers stole Google’s entire password system called Gaia.

Fourth, Google has too many unique capabilities and metadata sets that are of strategic value to the NSA to believe Google’s denials that it does not work closely with the NSA

Snowden’s NSA revelations have underscored the high value the NSA puts on collecting the metadata of who is communicating with whom, when, where, and how much.

Remember Google is metadata central. It is veritable surveillance catnip for the NSA Think about it. Google’s cookies track the Internet behavior of nearly 2 billion people. Over a billion people regularly use Google Search, Maps, Android, and YouTube. And about a half billion people use Gmail and Google + social media.

Former NSA Director Michael Hayden has said “Gmail is the preferred Internet service provider of terrorists worldwide.”

Thus Google has the unique capability to surveil for the NSA the online behavior of a targeted group of people by country, language, interests, keywords, names, communications, physical location, movements, time and more.

Simply put, Google’s world’s largest computer already can do what the NSA wants to do most.

Add to all this Google’s unique capability to instantaneously translate 80 different languages across applications, and why wouldn’t the NSA covet a close working relationship with Google?

Finally, the behavior of America’s greatest military rivals, Russia and China, speaks volumes about the likely extent of unreported close cooperation between Google and NSA/DOD.

Remember it was the U.S. Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency that invented the Internet in the early ‘70s. It is no coincidence that Russia and China have been the most hostile to allowing Google’s Internet dominance to extend into their countries.

In summation, the accumulating evidence indicates that the U.S. military is on path to become Google’s single largest customer.

Page’s strategic positioning of Google’s biggest investments to strongly align with future U.S. military needs is no coincidence. It is likely tacit confirmation of a much stronger relationship than Google has acknowledged to date.

Page’s creeping militarization of Google will increasingly become problematic for the privacy of Google’s foreign users, which generate over half of Google’s revenues. While U.S. law purportedly prevents the NSA from surveilling Americans without a warrant, the NSA’s official mandate is to surveil foreign signals intelligence.

In short, Google’s creeping militarization means Big Brother Inc. aspires to work more closely with Big Brother government. source – Daily Caller

  • Why Obamacare is a Fantastic Success
    By Wayne Allyn Root

    There are 2 major political parties in America. I’m a member of the naïve, stupid, and cowardly one. I’m a Republican. How stupid is the GOP? They still don’t get it. I told them 5 years ago, 2 books ago, a national bestseller ago (“The Ultimate Obama Survival Guide”), and in hundreds of articles and commentaries, that Obamacare was never meant to help America, or heal the sick, or lower healthcare costs, or lower the debt, or expand the economy.

    The GOP needs to stop calling Obamacare a “trainwreck.” That means it’s a mistake, or accident. That means it’s a gigantic flop, or failure. It’s NOT. This is a brilliant, cynical, and purposeful attempt to damage the U.S. economy, kill jobs, and bring down capitalism. It’s not a failure, it’s Obama’s grand success. It’s not a “trainwreck,” Obamacare is a suicide attack. He wants to hurt us, to bring us to our knees, to capitulate- so we agree under duress to accept big government.

    Obama’s hero and mentor was Saul Alinsky- a radical Marxist intent on destroying capitalism. Alinksky’s stated advice was to call the other guy “a terrorist” to hide your own intensions. To scream that the other guy is “ruining America,” while you are the one actually plotting the destruction of America. To claim again and again…in every sentence of every speech…that you are “saving the middle class,” while you are busy wiping out the middle class.

    The GOP is so stupid they can’t see it. There are no mistakes here. This is a planned purposeful attack. The tell-tale sign isn’t the disastrous start to Obamacare. Or the devastating effect the new taxes are having on the economy. Or the death of full-time jobs. Or the overwhelming debt. Or the dramatic increases in health insurance rates. Or the 70% of doctors now thinking of retiring- bringing on a healthcare crisis of unimaginable proportions. Forget all that.

    The real sign that this is a purposeful attack upon capitalism is how many Obama administration members and Democratic Congressmen are openly calling Tea Party Republicans and anyone who wants to stop Obamacare “terrorists.” There’s the clue. Even the clueless GOP should be able to see that. They are calling the reasonable people…the patriots…the people who believe in the Constitution…the people who believe exactly what the Founding Fathers believed…the people who want to take power away from corrupt politicians who have put America $17 trillion in debt…terrorists?

    That’s because they are Saul Alinsky-ing the GOP. The people trying to purposely hurt America, capitalism and the middle class…are calling the patriots by a terrible name to fool, confuse and distract the public.

    Obamacare is a raving, rollicking, fantastic success. Stop calling it a failure. Here is what it was created to do. It is succeeding on all counts.

    #1) Obamacare was intended to bring about the Marxist dream- redistribution of wealth. Rich people, small business owners, and the middle class are being robbed, so that the money can be redistributed to poor people (who vote Democrat). Think about it. If you’re rich or middle class, you now have to pay for your own healthcare costs (at much higher rates) AND 40 million other people’s costs too (through massive tax increases). So you’re stuck paying for both bills. You are left broke. Brilliant.

    #2) Obamacare was intended to wipe out the middle class and make them dependent on government.Think about it. Even Obama’s IRS predicts that health insurance for a typical American family by 2016 will be $20,000 per year. But how would middle class Americans pay that bill and have anything left for food or housing or living? People that make $40K, or $50K, or $60K can’t possibly hope to spend $20K on health insurance without becoming homeless. Bingo. That’s how you make middle class people dependent on government. That’s how you make everyone addicted to government checks. Brilliant.

    #3) As a bonus, Obamacare is intended to kill every decent paying job in the economy, creating only crummy, crappy part-time jobs. Why? Just to make sure the middle class is trapped, with no way out. Just to make sure no one has the $20,000 per year to pay for health insurance, thereby guaranteeing they become wards of the state. Brilliant.

    #4) Obamacare is intended to bankrupt small business, and therefore starve donations to the GOP. Think about it. Do you know a small business owner? I know hundreds of them. Their rates are being doubled, tripled and quadrupled by Obamacare. Guess who writes 75% of the checks to Republican candidates and conservative causes? Small business. Even if a small business owner manages to survive, he or she certainly can’t write a big check to the GOP anymore. Money is the “mother’s milk” of politics. Without donations, a political party ceases to exist. Bingo. That’s the point of Obamacare. Obama is bankrupting his political opposition and drying up donations to the GOP. Brilliant.

    #5) Obamacare is intended to make the IRS all-powerful. It adds thousands of new IRS agents. It puts the IRS in charge of overseeing 15% of the U.S. economy. The IRS has the right because of Obamacare to snoop into every aspect of your life, to go into your bank accounts, to fine you, to frighten you, to intimidate you. And Obama and his socialist cabal have access to your deepest medical secrets. By law your doctor has to ask your sexual history. That information is now in the hands of Obama and the IRS to blackmail GOP candidates into either not running, or supporting bigger government, or leaking the info and ruining your campaign. Or have you forgotten the IRS harassed, intimidated and persecuted critics of Obama and conservative groups? Now Obama hands the IRS even more power. Big Brother rules our lives. Brilliant.

    #6) Obamacare is intended to unionize 15 million healthcare workers. That produces $15 billion in new union dues. That money goes to fund Democratic candidates and socialist causes- thereby guaranteeing Obama’s friends never lose another election, and Obama’s policies keep ruining capitalism and bankrupting business owners long after he’s out of office.

    Message to the GOP: This isn’t a game. This isn’t tiddly-winks This is a serious, purposeful attempt to highjack America and destroy capitalism. This isn’t a trainwreck. It’s purposeful suicide. It’s not failing, it’s working exactly according to plan. Obama knows what he’s doing. Stop apologizing and start fighting.
    Oh and one more thing…Conservatives aren’t “terrorists” We are patriots and saviors. We represent the Constitution and the Founding Fathers. We are the heroes and good guys. Unless you get all this through your thick skulls, America is lost…forever.

    • Hey Teresa, Do you follow Pastor Lindsay Williams. He’s got a lot to say about what the true hidden agenda is behind the healthcare fiasco, and much, much more. This video is WORTH WATCHING PEOPLE. Some scary stuff heading our way. TIME TO WAKE UP!

      • Bottom line is, it’s litterally going to take down the economy sometime in 2014, just like the NWO planned it to be. Hear what he has to say and get ready to hear the truth.

      • Hi Eng, sorta. I was sent a video earlier so interesting you sent this. weird. are you really you? just kidding. He has a lot of folks saying he is nuts, but I listened in the night to him once, and read when he was in Alaska. Will watch thanks, Blessings to you

        • He has a lot of people thinking he’s crazy, but after hearing his lastest video posted in Dec. 2013, I was just in SHOCK and AWE how drastic of a turn this country is about to take in 2014. Believe me when I say this video is worth listening to. God be with us all.

  • Your in or out of NWO?

    • Moonlit, tell us the truth, do you live in Mexico! :mrgreen: Reminds me of the song Blue Moon! Don’t make me moon you now, 😯 :mrgreen:

  • TRICARE to Bill for Some Lab Fees

    TRICARE beneficiaries soon will have to pay out of pocket for diagnostic genetic tests that the Defense Health Agency doesn’t view as appropriate or medically necessary. According to a report by Tom Philpott, (http://www.military.com/benefits/tricare) TRICARE stopped reimbursing clinical laboratories for more than 100 different genetic or “molecular pathology” tests in January 2013. Philpott reports that beneficiaries haven’t complained yet because the laboratories impacted are still providing the tests that physicians order at no charge. To date, labs have provided about $10 million worth of free tests to TRICARE users.

  • ” The Bride of the Lamb”
    Many people believe the bride to be the church. Why? Well, I suppose because of the 10 virgin parable, and the reference Paul gave of the church being under subjection to Christ, as a wife is to her husband. But the bride is not the church, but the city is the bride, instead. Please hear me out! There are two different places at two different times, I will prove this.
    Let’s look at Eze. chapters 40-48. Here we see the prophesies of the kingdom age, when Christ reigns. Look at Ezek. 41:21,23:

    Eze 41:21 The posts of the temple were squared, and the face of the sanctuary; the appearance of the one as the appearance of the other.
    Eze 41:23 And the temple and the sanctuary had two doors.

    This is the temple, Christ himself will build in that kingdom age, as the defiled tribulation temple, and city are destroyed.

    Now, let’s look at what the bride is going to be like:
    Rev 21:22 And I saw no temple therein: for the Lord God Almighty and the Lamb are the temple of it.
    This City is coming after the millennium reign of Christ. So, if we come back to reign with Christ then we can not be the bride, but rather we are those that are invited to the marriage supper of the Lamb. That being the 1000 year rejoicing, as we reign with the Lamb, Rev 19:7-9, & Rev 20:4. The Marriage comes after the 2nd resurrection and Great judgment, Rev 20:11:15. And the Lamb’s wife is the City, new Jerusalem.

    Rev 21:1 And I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away; and there was no more sea.
    Rev 21:2 And I John saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband.
    Rev 21:9 And there came unto me one of the seven angels which had the seven vials full of the seven last plagues, and talked with me, saying, Come hither, I will shew thee the bride, the Lamb’s wife.
    Rev 21:10 And he carried me away in the spirit to a great and high mountain, and shewed me that great city, the holy Jerusalem, descending out of heaven from God,

  • Oh, what love! The Good Shepherd loved His sheep so that He became for them, the Lamb of God. To all that will believe, to him that thirst let him come! Take freely the water of Life, the word of God. Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every single word of God.

    • That’s the Ron I know and love. 😉

  • Psa 34:8 O taste and see that the LORD is good: blessed is the man that trusteth in him.
    Psa 34:9 O fear the LORD, ye his saints: for there is no want to them that fear him.

    • thank you Ron

      • Bless you, Sister. The rest of that chapter is also great.

        Psa 34:11 Come, ye children, hearken unto me: I will teach you the fear of the LORD.
        Psa 34:12 What man is he that desireth life, and loveth many days, that he may see good?
        Psa 34:13 Keep thy tongue from evil, and thy lips from speaking guile.
        Psa 34:14 Depart from evil, and do good; seek peace, and pursue it.
        Psa 34:15 The eyes of the LORD are upon the righteous, and his ears are open unto their cry.
        Psa 34:16 The face of the LORD is against them that do evil, to cut off the remembrance of them from the earth.
        Psa 34:17 The righteous cry, and the LORD heareth, and delivereth them out of all their troubles.
        Psa 34:18 The LORD is nigh unto them that are of a broken heart; and saveth such as be of a contrite spirit.
        Psa 34:19 Many are the afflictions of the righteous: but the LORD delivereth him out of them all.
        Psa 34:20 He keepeth all his bones: not one of them is broken.
        Psa 34:21 Evil shall slay the wicked: and they that hate the righteous shall be desolate.
        Psa 34:22 The LORD redeemeth the soul of his servants: and none of them that trust in him shall be desolate.

  • Gump reloaded

    I’m meant hopelesssssss ….as if

  • I hope every one saw my study above, proving the Church is not the Bride of Christ. Now, I would like to add a little more to that.

    We know from Rev 21:1 that there will be no more sea, just before the New Jerusalem comes down out of Heaven.

    Rev 21:1 And I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away; and there was no more sea.
    Rev 21:2 And I John saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband.

    So let’s take a look at Ezek. 47:8. Here we see the river of life flowing to the salt sea toward the east from the throne in Jerusalem, healing the waters in the sea!
    So, once again this can not be the bride that Jesus marries, before the Millennial reign is over. These are two different cities. The time of the bride city has neither sea nor temple!

    Eze 47:8 Then said he unto me, These waters issue out toward the east country, and go down into the desert, and go into the sea: which being brought forth into the sea, the waters shall be healed.
