Why Would You Want to Spy on Yourself for the Government?

Our grid depends on this mineral

And alternately, how “smart” do you really want your home to be?

The commercials have been airing for awhile now: you can protect your home with a smart CCTV camera system that includes full streaming, night vision, two-way talk back, and digital zoom for only $150. You can even add on the optional cloud recording to access stored footage of your home for up to a month (all encrypted for your security, of course).

Now news has surfaced that Google’s “Nest” division, which involves smart thermostats that program themselves and can be remotely controlled to change your home’s temperature over the Internet from anywhere, is looking to move into home security with plans to purchase home CCTV system-maker Dropcam.

“With a Dropcam Wi-Fi video monitoring camera and optional cloud recording service you can remotely drop in on your house, baby, pets, business, or anything else from a smartphone, tablet, or computer,” the firm says. (source)

Check out the video. Dropcam’s CEO says they built it to answer a really simple question: “What goes on at home when I’m not there?”

Guess it depends who is asking the question. Google’s plans ultimately involve, according to Mail Online, total home automation.

Apparently this comes just as Apple is planning to unveil its own home automation app that would tie everything together:

 An Apple patent published in November last year gave the first hints of the system, showing a system that automatically turned on lights when a user comes home.

It is believed the firm is already working with home automation firms to ensure their gadgets work with the app.

The firm already sells home automation gadgets in its stores, including including arch rival Google’s Nest thermostats, Dropcam wireless cameras, Philips Hue lightbulbs and Belkin WeMo switches. [SIC] (source)

That means you and your house will be constantly creating bits of data that form a blueprint of your daily life: how much electricity and water you use and when you use it, on top of a camera that video tapes you using it.

And what of privacy?

And if you can “drop in” on your house, you have to wonder, who else can drop in, too?

After all, it was just last month that a hacker tapped into a couple’s app-controlled baby monitor, and they awoke to a strange man operating the camera and screaming at their baby in the middle of the night from inside their home.

Beyond that, we live in a world where the so-called National Security Agency’s habit of spying on Americans through major telecommunications companies like Google and Apple has been fully exposed now. It’s not even a question of if they do it anymore. They are openly doing it. Period.

Why else would they need to build a $3 billion data hub in the Utah desert?

(On a side note, it’s pretty interesting that out of three American cities that Google chose to first launch it’s Fiber super high speed internet, one of them is Provo, Utah…a choice that hardly makes sense in lieu of larger cities until you consider Provo is just 30 minutes away from the aforementioned NSA spy hub.)

In addition to apps that track your house, Apple is also set to unveil an app that tracks…you:

Called Healthbook, the new app is expected to be unveiled in June at Apple’s annual developer conference. It offers everything from food and sleep tracking to blood sugar level analysis – and can even tell how much water you’ve drunk. (source)

We now live in such a fear-based technocratic society, we are literally paying to give up liberty for security.

Pretty soon, your smart phone/smart pad/smart watch/computer (and anyone with access to it) will know everything about you, your home, your habits, and basically your whole entire life. The concept of privacy is quickly going out the virtual window.

The human race is about to get sucked up into the Internet of Things — “a global, immersive, invisible, ambient networked computing environment built through the continued proliferation of smart sensors, cameras, software, databases, and massive data centers in a world-spanning information fabric.”

    Here’s the problem. Unless you totally disconnect from the grid, you’re GOING to be trackable in some form or another. The digital and wireless era was the death knell for privacy because once the government has backdoor access to the internet, which they do, they can access just about anything.

    Anything that has ‘smart’ in it is a microphone or a camera, OR BOTH for the government, OR allows them to monitor and remotely control said appliances at their whim. This includes your car, dishwasher, TV, your digital smart thermostat, your lamps, etc.

    This is why they want the smart grid SO badly. It’s about control. Control of YOU and how much you use. WHY else would they give you a FREE $250 digital house thermostat? Because they know that people are suckers for FREE things!

    The Internet of Things will make Orwell’s 1984 look like Dick and Jane play house. In reality, it is only the prelude to ..you got it..Revelations. I give it 2 years max before RFID chips will be injected into newborns by law. You won’t be able to do anything without this ID. By virtue of GPS satellites, new NSA surveillance facilities will track every move you make. Of course, the DUMBEST COUNTRY ON THE PLANET will suck this tech up in the name of ..you got it..safety.

    Dear Madam or Sir:

    “As I stated in my complaint to the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (V.A.), Office of Inspector General, http://www.va.gov/oig/ Field Examiner Israel Hendricks (or Hendrickson) at the V.A. in Albuquerque, New Mexico, who is stationed at the V.A. in Salt Lake City, Utah, is trying to kill me by withholding my V.A. Disability Compensation Pay (Pay) for food and clothing, as part of the government’s attempt to increase the die off of American
    veterans (“Secret Veterans Death List Discovered: Secret Lists, Secret Policy, Killing American Veterans | Veterans Today,” Gordon Duff, Senior Editor, http://www.veteranstoday.com/2014/04/24/secret-veterans-death-list-
    discovered/ and “The VA Healthcare Scandal Grows – Yahoo News,” Adam Chandler, May 19, 2014 10:33 AM, http://news.yahoo.com/va-healthcare-scandal-grows-143300332.html). Frank Sutherland with his own corporation in his same name and also or formerly, on the staff of the University of Minnesota, as my V.A. appointed Fiduciary, and Dina Cannon at Ayudando Guardians as my V.A. appointed Custodian in Albuquerque, New Mexico, are accessories in this
    criminal attempt to kill me. The theft of my Pay is another crime committed by Hendricks, Sutherland, and Cannon. The Federal Bureau of Investigation (F.B.I.) has repeatedly refused to investigate. In addition to the theft of government funds, which is intended to contribute to my murder, Hendricks, Sutherland, Cannon, as well as the V.A. and F.B.I. are involved in the violation of my civil rights as specified in the U.S. Constitution and Bill of Rights. Other wrongdoers and/or witnesses are Reggie Price (New Mexico
    Department of Veterans’ Services), Jim Bull (V.A.), Donna Tankersley (formerly with Paisano Realty, Lordsburg, New Mexico (maiden name: Kerr), and Leticia Garcia, former staff member of Senator Pete Domenici(?)).

    The attempt to kill me involves more than just the attempt by the VA to increase the rate of death of American veterans through the manipulation of care and money based upon statistics and probabilities. While I was on active duty in the U.S. Army at Fort Campbell, Kentucky , in the early 1970s, I was tortured in the same way as Soviet dissidents were tortured at that time, as defined and desribed by the U.S. government and quoted in the press (“Part VI. Mind Control: History and Applications, Dr. Eric T. Karlstrom,
    Emeritus Professor of Geography, December, 2012” http://www.911nwo.com/history-of-mind-control.htm “The Case Against Michael Aquino – Satanic Pedophile” http://exposinginfragard.blogspot.com/2014/02/the-case-against-
    michael-aquino-satanic.html and “Chapter 6 – United States Military & NASA Mind-Control Training” http://earthsfinaldays.com/chapter6.htm). Lt. Col.
    Michael A. Aquino (ret.), http://www.rachane.org/Vitae.html was involved in my torture as part of his official duties. However, yesterday Mr. Aquino in an electronic-mail sent to me at bidandeechohi@yahoo.com denied any and/or all participation as stated below:

    “On Tuesday, May 27, 2014 1:34 PM, Dr. Michael A. Aquino

    Dear Mr. Edlund [James Merle, Private First Class, my name in the Army],

    I have not corresponded with you previously, have never been involved in MK[-]ULTRA, have never tortured anyone, and throughout my military career never once set foot on Fort Campbell.

    Sincerely,

    My additions are in brackets [ ], including the word sic, pointing out his spelling error (which are not uncommon on the Internet or by one under psychological stress).

    Furthermore, the gruesome sexual asssult and strangling attempt (conspiracy) on my life by the Lordsburg Police Department and Hidalgo County Sheriff’s Department as witnessed by Kenneth Hazard, 204 Shakespeare Street, Lordsburg, New Mexico 88045-1937, who is the former Sergeant at Arms of the Bandido
    Motorcycle Club, may be part of an attempt by the Federal government to silence me.
