Google Comes Under Fire for 'Secret' Relationship with NSA

Consumer Watchdog, an advocacy group largely focused in recent years on Google's privacy practices, has called on a congressional investigation into the Internet giant's "cozy" relationship with U.S. President Barack Obama's administration.

In a letter sent Monday, Consumer Watchdog asked Representative Darrell Issa, the new chairman of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, to investigate the relationship between Google and several government agencies.

The group asked Issa to investigate contracts at several U.S. agencies for Google technology and services, the "secretive" relationship between Google and the U.S. National Security Agency, and the company's use of a U.S. National Aeronautics and Space Administration airfield in California.

All we need to do...

All we need to do is quit using the services of companies that partner with government to deprive of us our freedoms and liberties. As more and more people stop purchasing products and services from these companies, we'll see companies that believe in freedom and free market principals grow up to take the place of these communist/fascist companies. You choose: A little inconvenience now or a lot of inconvenience later as your freedoms are totally eroded. Take a stand against these companies and make a difference.

Quit using search engines that are spying for the government. Quit flying out of large airports if you’re against the groping. Stop using cell phone companies that are spying for the government. If you need a cell phone then get a cheap pay as you go, and only use it for the bare minimum. They’ve conned us into believing that we need a lot of these devices and services that we really don’t need. If only 20% of the people would quit using the services and products of companies that are doing us harm, we would see a big change with in a few months. And when you discontinue using these services, please write them a little note to inform them why and be specific.

Android and Chrom OS save your data to google servers

The government (aka the kings of this world) are creating / funding / legislating cozy relationships with their corporate partners to enable full backdoor access to all of our data and devices in realtime without us even knowing that they ca watch us.

Intel - VPRO technologies enable 3G/cellular backdoor access the latest intel chip based devices via hidden SoC (system on chip) features that are fully RF powered and thus allow backdoor access even when the device is turned off.

All new chips, x86, ARM, etc are SoC designs that allow chip manufactures to embedded hidden hardware based independent nano systems into our everyday consumer devices without our knowledge. Whether it is your cell phone or toaster, in another 5-10 years these fascist public private partnerships can literally know everything about us (if they want to). And with GPS sensors also SoC based on the same chip they will always be able to know where we are too.

Google - through their web based OS's seek to continually in realtime backup all phone/computer data to googles (NSAs) servers. This is a great feature if you drop your phone in a mud puddle. You just login to another google device with your gmail account and all your data is there. Problem is your full data and record of all activity can be fully analyzed in realtime by google/NSA (aka, the kings of this world) at any moment without them ever having to touch your device directly.

It is what it is... And even very few in this forum can even comprehend how far we already are toward having in place the systems for the kings of this world to possess the ability to analyse in an automated way our every move and thought based on our minute to minute finite interactions with everyday appliances and devices.

Read the bible and know that Jesus Christ (libertarian and pardoner of all sins) has already seen the deepest darkest depths of hell, broken the chains, burst through these nets, and ripped up the snares that bid both him and us. The traps laid by the kings of this world to catch their innocent and or pardoned prey will not hold down Christ and his chosen ones. Have faith and believe o you libertarians... We will be victorious in Christ.

At least this is my view and where my hope resides. No offense intended.

Get It Straight Please

Vpro processors are new and for PC's and servers not for smart phones. The average person would not yet have Vpro technology in their computer or phone. Though, everything you said is theoretically possible, but hasn't happened in the manner you described, not yet. I was wondering why you didn't source your reply. Now, I see after checking your facts myself, that you are incorrect. Here's the link to my fact checking:

http://www.intel.com/itcenter/products/core/core_vpro/indexc.htm?cid=cim:ggl|vprodtop_us_vpro|rd113AA|s

Of course, if you really wanted secure communication, you wouldn't use any type of phone at all. All PC communication would be through a proxy.

Vpro is not new but it is becoming more advanced and SoC based

Chip makers are now hiding complete and separate systems within their chips via new SoC technologies. These systems and monitoring systems are completely self contained and can be completely self sufficient within their own inboard nano module and are their own RF radio frequency power source (no on chip battery required.

My comments are not solely about intel, arm, google, Microsoft, or any other entity.

If you think you can escape by tossing your arm chips based android (google) only to run to intel and Microsoft or apple Mac; well think again.

If you interact with technology in the future you will interact through SoC based devices / appliances that have hidden embedded security, monitoring and tracking systems based on 3G and 4g cellular components on chip that are embedded not for you to use but instead for the kings of this world to use at your cost and expense; and at your own peril.
