Big Brother is Listening – Confirmed.


Just yesterday, on Facebook, the subject of George Orwell’s novel “1984” warning about the future regarding “Big Brother” controlling media, behaviour, thoughts, history records, wars, sexual behaviour, surveillance, just about all of human activities.

The gist was that he intended this as a warning rather than a prediction. In fact. it is now a reality. Another post warned about our laptop camera being a source of unintended broadcasting of our images, possibly the mic providing the audio. Suggested a piece of the ubiquitous ‘duct tape’ as a solution.

Today, the risks associated with smart TV’s are highlighted. Of course, this can only occur if your WiFi is connected and on. This has been mooted for some time, but here we have conclusive evidence, an admission from the manufacturer.

Jake Anderson, ‘Anti Media‘:

(ANTIMEDIA) In a troubling new development in the domestic consumer surveillance debate, an investigation into Samsung Smart TVs has revealed that user voice commands are recorded, stored, and transmitted to a third party. The company even warns customers not to discuss personal or sensitive information within earshot of the device.

This is in stark contrast to previous claims by tech manufacturers, like Playstation, who vehemently deny their devices record personal information, despite evidence to the contrary, including news that hackers can gain access to unencrypted streams of credit card information.

The new Samsung controversy stems from the discovery of a single haunting statement in the company’s “privacy policy,” which states:

“Please be aware that if your spoken words include personal or other sensitive information, that information will be among the data captured and transmitted to a third party.”

This sparked a back and forth between the Daily Beast and Samsung regarding not only consumer privacy but also security concerns. If our conversations are “captured and transmitted,” eavesdropping hackers may be able to use our “personal or other sensitive information” for identity theft or any number of nefarious purposes.

There is also the concern that such information could be turned over to law enforcement or government agencies. With the revelation of the PRISM program by which the NSA collected data from Microsoft, Google, and Facebook and other such NSA spying programs, neither the government nor the private sector has the benefit of the doubt in claiming tech companies are not conscripted into divulging sensitive consumer info under the auspices of national security.

So there you have it, indisputable evidence.

    Fear of worldwide nuclear annihilation in the closing days of WWII convinced world leaders to unite nations and national academies of sciences into a worldwide “Orwellian Ministry of Scientific (UN)Truths” to hide the source of energy that destroyed Hiroshima from the public.

    The UN was formed on 24 Oct 1945. Falsehoods were inserted into the foundations of nuclear and solar physics, starting in 1946.

    I was able to report details in manuscripts on “Solar Energy,” “Stalin’s Science,” etc
    before my ResearchGate and Disqus accounts were locked.

    Forgiving those who deceived us for the past seventy years (1946-2006) will allow us to focus on restoring integrity to:

    1. Government science and to
    2. Constitutional limits on formerly independent national governments

    Like 15th Century Popes, world leaders united to hide the source of energy they cannot control:
