Facebook Unveils Sinister Project
to Read Your Thoughts (Seriously)

Heat Street, by Kieran Corcoran

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 4/21/2017 10:03:36 AM

Elite Facebook scientists have unveiled their latest project: building technology to literally read your thoughts. A group of experts, led by the former boss of the Pentagon’s shadowy DARPA military research division, have hired 60 developers to bring the tech to life. At a conference in San Jose, covered by The Financial Times, Regina Dugan described how they hoped to monitor the movement of minerals moving through individual brain cells to read thoughts. (Snip) Dugan claimed that the social network’s only interest in accessing its users’ thoughts is to save them time typing or speaking so they can “get all

Absolutely nothing would surprise me anymore related to things like this. It sounds like some weird tin foil hat conspiracy but with I just don´t see that it is inconceivable. A few weeks ago I saw a segment on 60 minutes that is related. I never watch that show and by chance was flipping around and saw the story about how iPhones are programmed addict the user. Link below. Considering the behavior of those who are permanently glued to their iPhones I don´t see that as being too far fetched. It really is a frightening brave new world.

The tech world was mystified when Microsoft purchased Skype, a company which had never turned a profit or had any room to grow, for BILLIONS of dollars. For what? To cannibalize the client into a new, glorified version of Microsoft Lync?

Then, it came out (I believe in the Snowden affair, if memory serves) that the software had been modified to act as an active and passive listening device for the NSA. FOR the NSA, mind you, not BY them. While it will (probably) never be proven, the ludicrous sum for that purchase was likely paid by you and me, through national security appropriations.

I have little doubt that something similar is going on here a surveillance technology research expenditure being disguised as Convenient New Innovation for Your Home or Office Use!

But, the data-processing capabilities of our vaunted cyber security apparatus at Fort Meade and the Utah Data Center are already totally outstripped by the sheer amount of data being collected on the American people. This makes them nearly useless for discerning national security threats, but pretty excellent at storing the communications of every American. Just in case, for some reason, you might want to pick out some individual and peel his life apart like an onion.

Once the Panopticon can read our thoughts, they´re gonna have to buy ten more like the Utah Data Center. BOHICA. Our surveillance state overlords are going to make you and me purchase our own chains, and at a steep price.

Not surprised. I think there has been much study into mob-mentality behavior and the left has been directing the lemmings, starting with ´Big Education´ (but now in grade schooling as well)and ´Big (and Social) Media´. They may not be attempting to read our thoughts so much as checking on the progress of how well they can direct them.

Considering the absolute addiction that the youth of this country have with their iPhones, and people of all ages posting their every thought on Facebook, I´d say they have already succeeded. They´ll gather a lot of useless trash, but no really intelligent thoughts!

Just what we need. A method for idiots to throw out their thoughts to the internet 5 times faster. Many of these individuals don´t have an original thought in their head, and all they would produce are mindless slogans and PC nonsense.

Sound like DARPA is using Facebook resources to develop a real form of mind reading. Can´t be good. Sounds rather sinister to me.

Wall Street Journal columnist Peggy Noonan says President Trump’s primary problem as a leader is not that he is “inexperienced, crude, an outsider” but that he is “weak and sniveling” and “undermines himself almost daily by ignoring” traditional norms of American masculinity. “He throws himself, sobbing, on the body politic,” Noonan wrote in her column Thursday. “He’s a drama queen.

The Department of Justice announced on Wednesday that federal prosecutors filed charges against Monica Morgan, the wife of the late United Auto Workers Vice President General Holiefield, and former Fiat Chrysler Vice President Alphons Iacobelli for violating the Labor Management Relations Act.

Congressional leaders are interested in conducting their own independent investigation into a growing scandal surrounding IT staffers working for Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D., Fla.), who are accused of stealing sensitive computer equipment from House lawmakers´ offices. (Snip) Wasserman Schultz´s testimony is of particular interest as she has come under fire for keeping Awan on the House payroll even after information about his actions became public and not cooperating with the investigation.

Sen. Lindsey Graham (R–S.C.) said Thursday that he is writing a bill that will limit President Trump´s ability to fire the special counsel investigating Russian election meddling. Graham said his bill, which he will introduce next week, will block a president from firing the special counsel without a federal judge’s approval if that counsel is investigating the president or his administration, according to The Wall Street Journal.

WASHINGTON — Embattled Democratic Florida Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz has avoided facing any media since her law enforcement arrested her former IT staffer Imran Awan Tuesday on bank fraud charges. Wasserman Schultz, who walked down the House Capitol steps late Wednesday afternoon following remarks she made on the floor, caught site of The Daily Caller’s reporter and nervously turned around and ran back up the steps with her staffer in tow. The Miami Herald reported Thursday night that her spokesman told a reporter Wednesday, as she walked to the floor of the House, that she would not answer questions about

Trump and his critics are attacking each other, failing to focus on the only story that counts: the welfare of the United States. The American political system has never quite seen anything like the current opposition to President Trump and his unusual reaction to it. We are no longer in the customary political landscape. Usually, the out-of-power opposition — in this case, the Democratic party — offers most of the criticism and all of the alternative policies in order to win in the next election. Instead, Trump has an entire circle of diverse critics shooting at him. But they just

(Snip) McCain said in a statement after casting the decisive “no” vote in the wee hours of Friday morning: “I’ve stated time and time again that one of the major failures of Obamacare was that it was rammed through Congress by Democrats on a strict-party line basis without a single Republican vote. We should not make the mistakes of the past that has led to Obamacare’s collapse.” But it is not as if Democrats were excluded from the repeal effort. Throughout the past seven

President Trump responded to the Senate Republican´s inability to pass a skinny version of Obamacare´s repeal the only way he knows how: Twitter. (Tweet) Senate Republicans weren´t able to muster enough votes to pass their skinny repeal of Obamacare. Senators voted 49-51 shortly before 2:00 a.m. Friday morning. Sen. John McCain (R-Arizona) cast a surprise "no" vote. He was joined by GOP Sens. Lisa Murkowski (Alaska), Susan Collins (Maine). The bill, titled the Health Care Freedom Act, would have repealed the individual insurance mandate. It would also have repealed the employer mandate for eight years.

What would you conclude if you voted for a candidate or a party because of a promise to repeal or change a law that you strongly felt was harmful and unjust, but once in office the party refused to do it? You might conclude, rightly, that those politicians didn’t really work for you, and the party didn’t care what you thought. That’s precisely the message Republicans have been sending their constituents throughout the Obamacare repeal fiasco. The failure of Senate Republicans to pass a so-called “skinny repeal” in the early hours of Friday is merely the latest instance of GOP

Senator John McCain waited two years to get his revenge against Donald Trump for saying that McCain is not a war hero. But with a giant middle finger — or more precisely a thumb — McCain, perhaps assuming that he’ll never run for election again, showed Donald Trump that repealing and replacing Obamacare would not be the “so easy” venture that the great “deal-maker” promised. I understand that these two men don’t like each other. I understand that revenge is a dish best served cold. But by looking to hurt President Trump — which I have no doubt was one motivation

At 1:45am on July 28th 2017, Republican Senator John McCain together with Lisa Murkowski and Susan Collins voted against the ObamaCare repeal in the Senate; ensuring the failing ObamaCare health care takeover and economic drag continues. This should not come as a surprise. McCain has a legacy of voting against the American people to the benefit of his corrupt legislative corporate handlers. Yet, the vote was still blood-boiling in ramification and consequence. (Snip) Senator McCain’s vote holds much larger ramifications than just the continuance of ObamaCare. Inherent within the retention is a reality that any tax reform, tax cuts to
