Marrs said at the time that the elite had fallback positions from a chaotic society: seed vaults to which only they had access. “Marrs was clearly alluding to the fact that some very bad events are coming and the global elite are aware of it and are moving to meet the threat,” Hodges wrote on his radio show website. Hodges went on to… View Article

                        NSA’s Massive New Data Center Is Melting The NSA’s huge Utah data center is supposed to help U.S. intelligence collect billions of bytes of data when it opens this fall. But the agency hit a snag or two in trying to take the complex live: a mysterious, repeated electrical failure keeps melting the facility’s equipment. The center, located in Utah in part because of a need to access the massive amounts of cheap electricity available there, has suffered 10 meltdowns over 13 months, starting in August 2012.

Feinstein’s NSA ‘reform’ bill would expand snooping powers

Feinstein’s NSA ‘reform’ bill would expand snooping powers bipartisan group of US senators is trying to ban the NSA’s blanket surveillance program in a radical bill proposed to the Senate Intelligence Committee.

NSA Tapped The Internet Backbone

                        Dianne Feinstein Accidentally Confirms That NSA Tapped The Internet Backbone It’s widely known that the NSA has taps connected to the various telco networks, thanks in large part to AT&T employee Mark Klein who blew the whistle on AT&T’s secret NSA room in San Francisco. What was unclear was exactly what kind of access the NSA had.

So far, the administration has… View Article
