    You can bet they have a special Extinction Protocol file. This has been going on for years, since 9-11. The question for all of us is whether we will knuckle under when they start rounding up people who don’t “agree” with the NWO ideology. Or when the US. Gov. starts interning “undesirables”. Something tells me Christians will be at the top of their list.

    if you have a computer device that has a nividia chipset ,either on the motherboard or on a video card , then your device has a secret backdoor written into the chip that will allow direct access to all your files , by groups like the cia , nsa , fbi , etc etc. this has been happening for about 10 years now.

      Do you really think its just the “Nividia” corporation doing this? Should everyone chuck out their “Nividia” video cards and switch over to the “AMD” video cards instead? Naaaah, I’m pretty sure that “Big- Brother” has had its hands in all the electronics for a while now.

      “The invention of print, however, made it easier to manipulate public opinion, and the film and the radio carried the process further. With the development of television, and the technical advance which made it possible to receive and transmit simultaneously on the same instrument, private life came to an end.” ― George Orwell, 1984

      Have a calm and blessed day……..

    I saw the original when I was a teen. Then again when Richard Burton stared in the re-make. Now it is a reality. I have the movie and a tape player stored away. I’m going to get it out of storage and watch it again. There are advantages of being a “pack rat” after all.

    • It’s a very disturbing and prophetic film, on so many levels. At the time, it painted such a bleak picture of the future that few could see it becoming a reality. I was fortunate to obtain it on DVD before it vanished. Of course, Terry Gilliam also based his surreal 1985 film Brazil on Orwell’s 1984.

  4. Here’s the part that should tip us all off to the actual extent and depth of this data mining: the government uses it to track known or suspected terrorists, but who is defined as terrorists? Over the last few months the government has lumped veteran’s, Constitutionalists, Christians and anyone working for conservative causes as potential terrorists. See how big this picture really is? Uncle Sam hides the extent of this mining under the phrase “known or suspected terrorists” but then they don’t tell you directly just who exactly that means. When most people think of known or suspected terrorists they think of Muslims or loonies with an ax to grind, not the veteran next door or their pastor, but under the Federal government’s definition of known or suspected terrorist that includes most of the American people.

    I LOVE the out that all of these companies[ and banks included ] give when stating privacy policies…WE do NOT give out information to the government and if we do it is only to the extent of the law….The LAW? The goverment IS the law anymore and if they say give it up then guess what!…So if the government wants your information then they HAVE your information, since they write and manipulate the law to their immediate need as well as Marshall law. Don’t worry….No need to fight back, we like the slow cooking crab in the boiler pot; that does not realise that the increasing temperature of the water is meant to kill it until it is next to dead.By the time most people realised this was happening we were already boiled.

    It is sad to say, but the blatant truth is we have allowed ourselves to become a “Big Brother society.”
    “We are an utter disgrace to the millions of brave men and women who have died to defend our freedoms.”

    the Fourth Amendment says: “The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.”

    The Prism program allows the NSA, the world's largest surveillance organization, to obtain targeted communications without having to request them from the service providers and without having to obtain individual court orders

    Herald reporter Ryan Gallagher wrote that Raytheon had “secretly developed software capable of tracking people’s movements and predicting future behavior
    by mining data from social networking websites” like facebook, Twitter, and Foursquare.

    The software is called RIOT, or Rapid Information Overlay Technology.

    Raytheon told the Herald it has not sold RIOT to any clients but admitted that, in 2010, it had shared the program’s software technology with the U.S. government as part of a “joint research and development effort … to help build a national security system capable of analyzing ‘trillions of entities’ from cyberspace.”

    They are gathering so much information on everyone that they have to build a brand new data storage center out in Utah – paid for by the American citizens and their tax dollars. It has the capability of storing 5 zettabytes of data…

    The Obama admin responded and said: "a critical tool in protecting the nation from terrorist threats”

    Democrat Senator Dianne Feinstein for California said: “There is nothing new in this program. The fact of the matter is, that this was a routine"

    Republican Senator Lindsey Graham for South Carolina said: “If we didn’t do it, we’d be crazy.”

    Republican Senator Saxby Chambliss for Georgia said: “This is nothing particularly new. This has been going on for seven years"

    Democrat Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid for Nevada: “Everyone should just calm down and understand this isn’t anything that is brand new. It’s been going on for some seven years.”

    "The Ministry of Peace concerns itself with war,
    the Ministry of Truth with lies,
    the Ministry of Love with torture
    and the Ministry of Plenty with starvation.
    These contradictions are not accidental ,
    nor do they result from ordinary hypocrisy:
    they are deliberate exercises in doublethink”

    Alvin,

    This is all unravelling so fast now

    Soon the finger will be pointed at who is pulling Obama’s puppet strings and the anti-christ shall be revealed

    I genuinely feel sorry for American citizens – nobody should have to suffer such complicit deceit and end up being the rest of the World’s enemies – it seems everything the US does these days, it creates more enemies (We in the UK also get the backlash for obvious reasons)

    The timing of these leaks, as the President is about to ‘have a word with China’ about hacking is incredible – the bigger picture is yet to be revealed and I think Glenn Greenwald (the Guardian reporter who broke the stories) has more up his sleeve

    Fortunately, I am old enough to remember life before computers, smart phones, internet and I find myself hoping that somebody can and will ‘break’ the internet, for good

    I don’t think praying will save people, I do however think that leaving the US would

    All the best, and do keep up the good work Alvin

    And to think that many of us were accused of wearing tin foiled hats. Years ago I talked about our losing our freedoms but so many people put me down. It was for the good of the people. So I shut up and just followed the news. And now, here we are. This this what they wanted. Have fun. 🙂

      I hear you niebo. Makes me wonder how many people will actually stop commenting or blogging now. I’m still commenting because if I’m on any radar I’ll be on it by now. So I might as well make it worth their time, and I like wasting other people’s time. Beside posting news-worthy articles like those on TEP, I post about the weather, the Bible, and a ton of cute cat pictures. I lead a real exciting life, don’t I. 🙂
