Obama: “Nobody is listening to your phone calls” But What About Your Dishwasher?

In response to “revelations” that the National Security Agency is collecting vast amounts of information from Verizon customers, Obama told the press that “Nobody is listening to your phone calls.”

Whew. We can all take a deep breath of relief now. Obama says no one is watching. Or are they?

The fact is, a much wider system of surveillance is being built. It goes well beyond monitoring phone calls and e-mails. The computer you are reading this on, your washing machine, coffee maker, and other devices will be “wired” in the near future. They will be transmitting data to the “internet of things.” According to CIA chief David Patraeus these technologies will have a monumental impact on “clandestine tradecraft.”

Consumer appliances are now becoming activated and “smart.” RFID chips and wireless internet connections enable devices like televisions, refrigerators, printers, and computers to communicate with each other and generally make life easier for us. This comes at a price, however. Your privacy is eliminated.

With this surveillance grid in place, David Patraeus says that “Items of interest will be located, identified, monitored, and remotely controlled through technologies such as radio-frequency identification, sensor networks, tiny embedded servers, and energy harvesters — all connected to the next-generation internet using abundant, low-cost, and high-power computing…”

South Korea has served as a testing ground for this type of technology. The city of New Songdo was used because, according to those involved, “There is an historical expectation of less privacy.” If you want to unplug from this grid, the United Kingdom’s Ministry of Defense says that eventually, “Even amongst those who make an explicit life-style choice to remain detached, choosing to be disconnected may be considered suspicious behaviour.”

    Time for the people of the United States to ditch these two old parties the democrats and Republicans.
    You need a new George Washington to bring back the principles that your country was founded on.The pursuit of your happiness ,Liberty and freedom.Not to be a servant of the festering elite class.That will certainly enslave you just like the kings and queens of Europe did with serfdom. An authoritarian regime is close and hand and your in it.

    light become white through the glass looking backwards when new colors unknown become the dreams Tron has inside cyber ville .even the cloud as he puts on that many colored coat of JOSEPH which he found in an archeological investigation – even had fake aliens from space wondering about this new situation like when the snow was falling in Zalmon ,even got into a den where the bear was still sleeping, Tron spoke with tongues of angels and captured one of the 7 thunders unwritten sayings -Trons grandson learns of the song and sees the vision -fade the shade and the dream goes through the prism …
