Deep State

As Bezos Demands Privacy, Amazon Enables the Surveillance State

Published

on

The Intercept editor Glenn Greenwald wrote a searing column on Friday documenting Amazon Founder Jeff Bezos’ extensive relationship with intelligence agencies and the deep state.

The reminder of Bezos’ corporate partnership with controversial government entities such as the CIA and NSA couldn’t come at a more appropriate time, as the Amazon founder has attracted attention for lashing out at what he calls an attempt by the National Enquirer to invade his privacy.

Bezos alleges he’s the victim of attempted blackmail on behalf of the Enquirer, which supposedly threatened to release his personal lewd photos if he didn’t shut down a potential lawsuit aimed at stopping the company’s embarrassing press coverage of the billionaire oligarch.

The multibillionaire is said to believe that a governmental agency leaked his personal photos to the Enquirer, which included embarrassing love poems and selfies to a mistress.

Greenwald’s article on Amazon’s partnership with mass surveillance entities show that Bezos has simply no right whatsoever to object to the exposure of his own digital data. Amazon has enabled surveillance structures to spy on the personal digital content of hundreds of millions of people, almost none of whom are multibillionaire oligarchs like its company founder.

The company partnered with the CIA to create a $600 million cloud computing network. It’s likely that the network will be utilized by all 17 federal intelligence agencies, doubtlessly to the effect of monitoring the private communications of American citizens.

The company has developed unprecedented facial recognition software, and shown itself more than willing to place it in the hands of government.

Speculation about Amazon’s ‘Alexa’ digital assistant has circulated widely, and it’s been revealed that the company’s patent for the device is able to ascertain the identity of its users and other sensitive information. It’s not impossible that Alexa could provide this information to uninvited third parties, governmental or otherwise.

In an ideal world, no one would have their dick pictures (that were by all indications consensually exchanged between lovers)leaked to media organizations or intelligence agencies. Bezos, however, has significantly aided the facilitation of systems that make that prospect impossible.

So no, the multibillionaire oligarch doesn’t deserve a single tear from privacy and fourth amendment advocates.

‘This Investigation is a Sham’: Judicial Watch President Slams John Durham for Going Easy on the Deep State

Durham is dropping the ball.

Trump supporters are waiting with baited breath for U.S. Attorney John Durham to come out with his explosive findings in regards to his investigation into the origins of the Russian collusion probe against President Trump.

According to Judicial Watch founder Tom Fitton, Trump supporters are getting taken for a ride. Fitton said during a recent appearance on Fox Business’ “Lou Dobbs Tonight” that Barr and Durham are making no progress on investigating what very well may be the worst criminal conspiracy in U.S. history.

“You know, my concern is it’s been, what, sixteen-plus months since Durham was appointed and only now is he questioning Mr. Brennan,” Fitton said.

Fitton said that he is inclined to believe disgraced former CIA Director John Brennan when he says that he is not a person of interest in Durham’s investigation.

“I don’t see grand juries operating. I don’t see a bunch of witnesses coming in. I don’t see lawyers complaining about their clients being brought in before Durham,” Fitton said.

He said that the Mueller investigation was run much more thoroughly than Durham’s so-called investigation, the goal of which appears to be protecting the deep state.

“You know when the government is being pressure on witnesses and subjects and that is not evident here,” Fitton said, adding that it is his opinion that Durham is “not doing the work” needed to bring deep state criminals to justice.

Fitton did not object to Dobbs’ characterization that he is calling the Durham a “sham.”

“I’ll have to tell you. I’m a little concerned that the FBI is no longer an investigative agency because if this is the way they operate, it’s going to take them decades to deal with anything of real complexity,” Dobbs said.

“Well, [FBI attorney Kevin Clinesmith] wasn’t arrested but they managed to arrest Stephen Bannon. The comparison and contrasting to me is just remarkable,” Fitton responded.

The entire exchange can be seen here:

Big League Politics has reported on how the DOJ seems intent upon covering up the immense corruption within the federal government:

Every person who has believed “trust the plan” propaganda received a reality check today after the release of the much-anticipated Inspector General (IG) report, which cleared the FBI of criminality and political bias in their plot to surveil President Donald Trump.

The fake news is gloating that President Trump has been proven false by the IG report’s findings. Although the IG report admits that the FBI’s investigation was improper in certain respects, it justified the underlying basis of the investigation and claimed it was not launched for political purposes because of authentic concerns about Russian collusion.

To sum it up, the deep state’s investigation of the deep state has found that the deep state essentially did nothing wrong.

The report ultimately concluded that no “documentary or testimonial evidence that political bias or improper motivation influenced the FBI’s decision to conduct these operations.” The IG report came to this conclusion despite the fact that 17 inaccuracies were discovered in three surveillance applications, including a completely promulgated rationale to spy on former foreign policy adviser Carter Page.

FBI Director Christopher Wray released a statement claiming that the report shows how the deep state is committed to serving the people.

“We are vested with significant authorities and it is our obligation as public servants to ensure these authorities are exercised with objectivity and integrity,” Wray said. “Anything less falls short of the FBI’s duty to the American people.”

Top Congressional Democrats released a statement claiming that the report’s findings vindicate their supposition that any talk of deep state wrongdoing is a conspiracy theory.

“Those discredited conspiracy theories were attempts to deflect from the President’s serious and ongoing misconduct, first urging Russia and now extorting Ukraine into interfering with our elections to benefit him personally and politically,” said Reps. Jerrold Nadler and Carolyn Maloney, the New York Democrats who co-chair the House Judiciary and Oversight committees.

It is looking like the swamp cannot be drained, as federal officials are caught committing brazenly illegal acts and go unpunished.
