CIA Chief: "We'll Spy on You Through Your Dishwasher"

CIA Chief: "We'll Spy on You Through Your Dishwasher"


More and more personal and household devices are connecting to the internet, from your television to your car navigation systems to your light switches. CIA Director David Petraeus cannot wait to spy on you through them.

Earlier this month, Petraeus mused about the emergence of an “Internet of Things” — that is, wired devices — at a summit for In-Q-Tel, the CIA’s venture capital firm. “‘Transformational’ is an overused word, but I do believe it properly applies to these technologies,” Petraeus enthused, “particularly to their effect on clandestine tradecraft.”

The first public case of this was Aldrich Ames in 1993

The first public case of this was Aldrich Ames in 1993. Then, the FBI grabbed the conclusive proof of his spying for the Russians by breaking into his home computer through the power lines.

Ames' computer was shut off, but they were able to reverse a power surge, flipping on his computer, and download the contents of his harddrive through the electric cable: no need to break down the door.

That was twenty years ago. Imagine what the freakin' dishwasher can do today.

I'd say, "unplug the wi-fi", which is what I do at night. But I checked my wi-fi access area, and there are now FORTY wi-fi's in range of my brand new dishwasher. Four years ago, there were only FOUR.

So, escape is impossible in a suburban setting. David Petraeus WILL know what you've had for dinner! And he WILL hold it against you~

'smart' technology is nothing new

There are UN docs dating from '97, and probably before, that talk about it. It's why they are 'updating' the grid to the 'smart' grid WORLD WIDE! It's why they put the smart meters on everyone's home. It's why they're pushing 'smart' phones, and 'smart' TV's and 'smart' everything. Cuz they think they're so 'smart' and we're so dumb we won't mind having all the new stuff even if it is a means of surveillance. Even if the radiation from it causes all sorts of harm down to our molecular level. Because they have to whittle down the population to 500,000 or whatever the number is. It's one huge experiment on the people of the world and all governments are complicit.
'Smart Growth' cities are EVERYWHERE! And, of course, they are intended to shove through the smart technologies. Look at how MA paints the rosey picture of a Smart Growth/Smart Energy city.

Smart Growth is found in Chapter 7 Agenda 21 and based on 'The Ideal Communist City'.

Someone should remind that treasonous pile of dung that the CIA

has no authority to spy on Americans - with or without dishwashers.

My wife is kicked out.

The technology is already in place.


Now just wait 'till your old Maytag kicks the bucket/is deemed "environmentally reckless" and your new one has WiFi and Bluetooth...

"The state is the great fictitious entity by which everyone seeks to live at the expense of everyone else."
-Frederic Bastiat

If anybody truly believes...

that all functionalities of our daily lives can be monitored continuously, without error and in our best interests, they are either genuinely misled or a paid invocateur of fear...

Get real!...the government cannot even handle the checks and balances of their own complicity to the counterfeit notes they pillage the people of, and we seriously believe we are going to be monitored by legislation of absolutes?

How well they serve up fear and how eagerly we rush in to masticate it.
