List Of Internet Billionaires Now Working For The Pentagon Keeps Growing

Defense Secretary Ash Carter announced those names as part of a list of ten new members for the board, which he created in March to advise the Pentagon on technology innovation issues. The board is headed by Eric Schmidt, executive chairman of Alphabet, the Google parent company.

Neil deGrasse Tyson, Jeff Bezos Join Defense Innovation Board

Astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson, Amazon head Jeff Bezos and former Obama administration official Cass Sunstein are among the newest names to join Defense Secretary Ash Carter’s new Defense Innovation Advisory Board.

Carter announced those names as part of a list of ten new members for the board, which he created in March to advise the Pentagon on technology innovation issues. The board is headed by Eric Schmidt, executive chairman of Alphabet, the Google parent company.

Google invests big time in secret government defense projects:

Remember when Google was a nerdy little company run by nerdy little people? Not anymore. Now Google is one of the largest suppliers of weaponry technology to secret Pentagon groups like DARPA

The board, Carter said in his speech, is “charged with keeping DoD imbued with a culture of innovation in people, organizations, operations, and technology, to support people who innovate, those creative figures in our department who are willing to try new things, fail fast, and iterate; and also to ensure that we’re always doing everything we can to stay ahead of potential adversaries.”

The board now includes the following members:

Hoffman, Isaacson and McRaven had all previously been announced as members of the board.

But the biggest names are Tyson, arguably the face of popular science around the world today, and Bezos, the Amazon founder who also owns The Washington Post. Bezos is also the head of Blue Origin, a space launch company working with the United Launch Alliance to develop a new engine for military launch.

Although not as flashy a name as some of the others, the inclusion of McQuade is notable, as United Technologies is the only legacy defense contractor involved in the board.

The board will work over the summer before providing initial recommendations to Carter by October. source

    It is a gathering of great and fertile minds to come up with innovative ways for national security, future combat and intelligence gathering. So what? These people are BILLIONAIRES for a REASON. They are smart, motivated and intellgent. They are heads above the average american in intelligence so why to recruit them to use their ideas for the better.. Quit being paranoid, you display ignorance when you do

    Consider that these folks are not so much about ability to win our present conflicts (although some of their ideas may prove very helpful) as they are about creating a means to win BEYOND immediate-future conflicts. They are about analyzing current trends in conflicts, projecting those trends forward into the future, assessing likely vulnerabilities and filling those gaps in our defenses and/or exploiting those vulnerabilities in our expected enemies.

    Who are YOU gonna call for that advice: 1. The Acme Buggy Whip Company? OR 2. The Starship Enterprise?

    The book of James has a lot to say about rich people, and it’s not good.

    James, throughout his book, takes rich people to task and shows them no mercy as you can see here:

    “Let the brother of low degree rejoice in that he is exalted: But the rich, in that he is made low: because as the flower of the grass he shall pass away.” James 1:9,10 (KJV)

    “Hearken, my beloved brethren, Hath not God chosen the poor of this world rich in faith, and heirs of the kingdom which he hath promised to them that love him? But ye have despised the poor. Do not rich men oppress you, and draw you before the judgment seats?” James 2:5,6 (KJV)

    “Go to now, ye that say, To day or to morrow we will go into such a city, and continue there a year, and buy and sell, and get gain: Whereas ye know not what shall be on the morrow. For what is your life? It is even a vapour, that appeareth for a little time, and then vanisheth away.” James 4:13,14 (KJV)

    “Go to now, ye rich men, weep and howl for your miseries that shall come upon you. Your riches are corrupted, and your garments are motheaten. Your gold and silver is cankered; and the rust of them shall be a witness against you, and shall eat your flesh as it were fire. Ye have heaped treasure together for the last days.” James 5:1-3 (KJV)
