The Obama regime has faced much resistance from Silicon Valley tech giants in the relentless drive to put all Americans under the watchful eye of Big Brother. With Obamatrade already pretty much in the bag thanks to the treacherous Paul Ryan and Mitch McConnell’s Judas like ability to sell Americans down the river, Barry is setting his sights on getting the tech giants to cave on encryption. From all indications after this week’s pow wow between the top fascists in the US government and Silicon Valley honchos that day is coming soon.
Many if not most conservatives are totally down with the administration’s latest effort to remove the last barriers that stand in the way of subjecting the lives of all of the inhabitants of this great star-spangled lemming farm to the full scrutiny of the feds. That is because it is being marketed as a critical tool in the war against radical Islam and in exploiting last month’s San Berdoo holiday party mass murders by the husband and wife ISIS groupie death squad the fascists now have a full head of steam and the wind at their backs in closing the deal. But these same folks should ponder one thing: if Ammon Bundy is being called a “terrorist” by many then by that rationale any of those who support his stand in Oregon are technically “terrorist” supporters and should chew on that morsel of food for thought.
In some very important news that isn’t being covered in any depth by corrupt domestic news organizations The Guardian reports that “Silicon Valley appears open to helping US spy agencies after terrorism summit”:
Technology giants appeared to be open to helping the US government combat Islamic State during an extraordinary closed-door summit on Friday that brought together America’s most senior counter-terrorism officials with some of Silicon Valley’s most powerful executives.
The remarkable rendezvous between Apple, Facebook, Twitter, Microsoft and others and a delegation from the White House revealed a willingness on the part of tech firms to work with the government, and indicated that the Obama administration appears to have concluded it can’t combat terrorists online on its own.
Top officials – including National Security Agency director Michael Rogers, White House chief of staff Denis McDonough and FBI director James Comey – appeared to want to know how they could launch a social media campaign to discredit Isis, a person familiar with the conversation said.
A briefing document sent to tech executives Friday morning in advance of the meeting and shared with the Guardian laid out a wish list from the government delegation, which included America’s most senior spy, director of national intelligence James Clapper.
“We are interested in exploring all options with you for how to deal with the growing threat of terrorists and other malicious actors using technology, including encrypted technology,” the briefing document said. “Are there technologies that could make it harder for terrorists to use the internet to mobilize, facilitate, and operationalize?”
Despite recent fights over civil liberties, encryption, and surveillance, tech executives appeared receptive to this message, according to sources familiar with conversations at the meeting.
“I was pleasantly surprised by the tone of the conversation,” said one attendee, Matthew Prince, chief executive of CloudFlare, a San Francisco-based security and network company. Christopher Young, head of Intel’s security group, who was also in the room, added it was “a good discussion today”.
In Washington earlier, White House press secretary Josh Earnest told reporters “many of these technology companies that are participating in the meeting today are run by patriotic Americans” and would want to cooperate.
The words of Josh Earnest – who serves as the latest in the line of Obama’s paid liars – that the companies are “run by patriotic Americans” and would want to cooperate” drips with the sinister hidden meaning of implied government threats or outright bribery to get the big boys in California to apply the final turn of the screw. The stripping of the rights to privacy is crucial to the rise of an authoritarian state and this entire ‘debate’ is taking place out of the sight of the American sheeple who have more important things to worry about – like who will be on the next season of Dancing With the Stars or getting their hands on the winning Powerball ticket.
The great Silicon Valley sellout will put the fork in the ass of any concept of privacy on the internet.
