Into the Google rathole: the new cool face of tyranny
In response to
Know your history: Google has been a military-intel contractor from the very beginning
From Mar 06, 2018
[...]But the fact that Google helps the military build more efficient systems of surveillance and death shouldn't be surprising, especially not to Google employees. The truth is that Google has spent the last 15 years selling souped-up versions of its information technology to military and intelligence agencies, local police departments, and military contractors of all size and specialization — including outfits that sell predictive policing tech deployed in cities across America today.[...]
I am still amazed nobody did the basic due diligence in such case:
1- login on the U.S. patents office database
2- list all the patents owned by the NSA, along with their licensing program (!)
Hints:    
3- compare with all the Google technologies when it was a startup.
4- look at their financial statements from year 1 onward
What does it tell?
1- a considerable part of these NSA patented technologies were adopted by Google from the onset. Pact with the devil?
2- evasive patent licensing expenses seem to appear in their early financial statements (2002-2005):
Could it be that they licensed these NSA patents?
3- from these seminal first financial statements, look at the financial income which was already surrealistic, 94-97% online advertising amounting to $Bs in these early years. Was there such market back on these days?
Was it (and is it still) at least a partially disguised payback?
4- There is also revenue coming from the licensing of their search engine to undisclosed clients. We will of course never know who were these wealthy clients, neither will we ever know if they also licensed their databases together with their search engine (as this may be bundled)... It is only now that this information takes another meaning: what if these licensing clients were (and still are) intelligence agencies?
5- The icing on the cake: Google spies on its employees to ensure high levels of secrecy:  
Of course a reputable business like theirs has got nothing to hide right?
What happened to that old "do no evil" and cool Lego bricks and diversity crap and free shit for fattening gender neutered employees thing?
We can suppose that goggle (and possibly other big internet companies like Facebook, Amazon, etc.) license NSA patents by the boatload and then license back their "search engines" (with their databases) to them. In other terms they are intelligence agencies facades which propose is to recruit international talents abroad without letting them know what is the ultimate purpose of their work. Need to know basis only... Which explains the surveillance.
The plausible deniability excuse for these cool internet companies comes from the fact that they do not explicitly allow the NSA inside their networks. They'd rather let their networks be tapped through their providers to repatriate it in their own datacenter and nobody in the audience sees anything, but they get their advertising revenues fair and square. Even a hummingbird couldn't catch Tyler at work.
Now this is a cool way of having people from enemy countries to work against their motherland without even knowing, under the guise of diversity. And you can also exploit their own social networks like in Egypt if you remember.
This also compensates for the lack of intelligence in the USA given the totally dumbed down educational system.
What could be better?
Let's get started about why would a super top secret agency like the NSA patent anything secret which would defeat the idea of secrecy. It apparently evades me but this is maybe part of the cornucopia of official agencies compliance bullshit or whatever. Anyway the rest of the world's intelligence agencies must be laughing their asses off when looking at the NSA projects through the USPTO keyhole. Unless of course they also play this little patent game too. After all what's needed nowadays is capacity to deal with information and for this you need to delegate basic tasks to qualified personal.
So this is what all of these cool start-ups are: sweat shops for the intelligence agencies. They are mandated to develop around NSA patents, which reduces the lead time for them to get their new spying toys ready.
In exchange for some business which will guarantee a comfortable income stream, one has to sell his soul to the MIC.
Always look at Google (Facebook, Amazon etc.) innovations as of they were designed by and for the NSA. This will rationalize a lot of things.
And this only points to one thing: the USA are in a race to war and are accelerating the pace to leave everyone behind. Probably because the economic situation is getting really desperate for the dollar and also because they can't cut Europe from Asia any longer.
For this they need the brains of the nations they are about to attack and their information. Remember this is officially cyber war but the truth is more informational than cyber. It is about demoralizing and subverting the rest of the world.
In other terms the USA don't want to get back to the status of actor in the world without giving a fight. A bloody one.
Because answering in kind to this tactic bears an incredible cost, asymmetrical options are better and much more cost effective:
1- poison the information, create fake accounts with fake info related to fake social networks (Facebook, troll armies) or infiltrate the internet power houses with your agents now openly and warmly accepted due to anti discrimination laws.
There you get a glimpse as to why the international debate is so heated against Putin's troll armies. It does much more damage than officially told because it probably destroys data quality in a way that neutralizes the whole operation.
2- create competing press and media channels (RT, Yandex, etc.)
This is why RT was forced to register as a foreign agent. But it's too late anyway because it has already reached the status of highly credible media, and nobody trusts occidental medias anyway. So the job is complete and the audience will remain faithful no matter what.
3- map all the abetting capabilities of the enemy in order to swiftly destroy them and their telecommunication networks in case of crisis (EMP and other sleeping viruses)
4- ensure homogeneity and solidarity of the population (I.e.: do not fall for the diversity and immigration bullshit)
5- get a real army ready to act with an updated arsenal.
And who in the world has already prepared this?
Online dissidence or patsy farming? The case of discord
Lemme do the splainin:
Use of social media or personal communication device as a tool of either resistance, domination, control  (sometimes along with plausible deniability thanks to its opacity  ) or just plain spying   is so obvious that any successful company has to fall under some level of control or risk being severely destroyed.    
Don't be surprised. After all reality is still that we are living in a world where unwritten rules and status quo prevail.
How's the control enforced and are your favorite social media compromised or used against you, whereas online communities should be seen as an expression of freedom of gathering?   It's equivalent to enquire what is the nerve of the war... Money is the answer.  Then reputation and influence peddling come next.   
Remember the old days when Skype was deemed an official security risk, before they changed their encryption mechanism  from p2p to centralized and then magically became corporate ready through the Microsoft purchase? That's just one example out of many.  
The most cheerful & obedient liberals, the best in class will soon line up for their reward, namely working for the military industrial complex without any complex on very juicy contracts, making hypocrisy great again.    Same as it ever was and ever will.
It looks just like the American internet giants have implicitly taken over the spot of digital artillery producers in the glorious U.S. M.I.C. 
After all they need that money too. Your money. The most successful businesses enjoy a constant stream of public funding because they would probably lose too much otherwise. Think about how much they waste and/or have to hide.   
And let's not venture into lobbying and revolving doors for now.  The state of the affairs is the affair of the state. Or vice versa.
Baking it in the cake
Today, let's concentrate on discord, the uber successful chat service for gamers, which happens to host a host of other communities, not always focused on online gaming.  The ransom of success certainly.
Let's examine who's behind... We'll start with the investors, then the board of directors. Are you buckled up?
Investors & venture capital
Available online at:
Accel partners 
The second round of funding into Facebook ($US12.7 million) came from venture capital firm Accel Partners. Its manager James Breyer was formerly chairman of the National Venture Capital Association, and served on the board with Gilman Louie, CEO of In-Q-Tel, a venture capital firm established by the Central Intelligence Agency in 1999. One of the company's key areas of expertise are in "data mining technologies".
Benchmark capital 
According to NextDoor.com's press statements, they are backed by Google Ventures, Bezos Expedition, Allen and Company, Greylock Capital Partners, and Benchmark Capital Partners. All of these firms have ties to the Central Intelligence Agency. None of these ties are secret. Nearly all are published openly by the companies themselves. As a group, these investment companies put their venture capital into tech companies and technologies that the intelligence community wishes to succeed. They profit by doing so.
Greylock partners 
Levine and PandoDaily are publicly funded by Greylock Partners, who are senior partners with the [sic] In-Q-Tel, the venture capital wing of the CIA.
With a market cap of $523 billion, Tencent surpassed Facebook ($522 billion) on Tuesday, joining the ranks of the world's five largest corporations that include Apple, Alphabet, Microsoft, and Amazon. It is also bigger than its Chinese rivals: e-commerce giant Alibaba ($474.15 billion), and web services company Baidu ($82.97 billion).
We evaluate Tencent's QQ Browser, a popular mobile browser in China with hundreds of millions of users---including 16 million overseas, with respect to the threat model of a man-in-the-middle attacker with state actor capabilities. This is motivated by information in the Snowden revelations suggesting that another Chinese mobile browser, UC Browser, was being used to track users by Western nation-state adversaries.
Among the many issues we found in QQ Browser that are presented in this paper, the use of "textbook RSA"---that is, RSA implemented as shown in textbooks, with no padding---is particularly interesting because it affords us the opportunity to contextualize existing research in breaking textbook RSA. We also present a novel attack on QQ Browser's use of textbook RSA that is distinguished from previous research by its simplicity. We emphasize that although QQ Browser's cryptography and our attacks on it are very simple, the impact is serious. Thus, research into how to break very poor cryptography (such as textbook RSA) has both pedagogical value and real-world impact.
FATBAGMAX = Facebook Amazon Tencent Baidu Alibaba Google Microsoft Apple Xiaomi. This is likely to reduce from 9 to 4, a market leader and a secondary in each of the U.S and China.

The Chinese government is pushing some of its biggest tech companies—including Tencent, Weibo and a unit of Alibaba—to offer the state a stake in them and a direct role in corporate decisions.

Did you see a pattern here?
Board of directors
Regarding the board of directors, information is harder to find because the company is not yet publicly traded. Online information is scarce and does not come for free:
Discord, formerly Hammer & Chisel and Phoenix Guild, is an all-in-one voice, video and text chat app designed specifically for gamers. The app is free, secure, and works on both desktop and phone.

So many cross references with alphabet soup agencies, spooks, crooks and other governmental bodies that it makes one wonder. Not.
It's like horse races, once you know the team behind the stallion, you know the dirty tricks. Need I elaborate further?
To summarize everything in 2 or 3 simple words:
Online gaming chat <-> CIA
or, to put it in another perspective:
CIA <-> Online gaming chat
How does your EEG performs today? Need caffeine with that?
There is no such thing as a free beer, lunch, social network, chat service, mobile phone, etc. Forget it. The price for such things is to be expressed in non monetary terms, namely your freedom of speech, and maybe soon your freedom of thought, before your blood, organs or even your first born.
So the powers that be use your money to herd you and exert influence & better control out of you, don't act surprised you knew it from your the get go. How could they rule otherwise than by being the ultimate parasitic of species?
Left unsaid is whether membership in this kind of conspiracy is enabled by belonging to the same community, be it ideological or faith based. In any case it's a big club and you're certainly not in it. Sorry.
The future is bright . After reading your mind like an open book, the only remaining thing left will be to write whatever garbage narrative du jour we want there. Who doesn't love that free shit entitlement feeling?
But wait, isn't it what television and medias were already supposed to do? -One must think this was not efficient enough. Oh well...
Have a nice day!
