1984 - GOP and Dems fully fund Big Brother

Your Life Belongs To The State
Big Brother Watches You 24-7

  • The Bill of Rights is an illusion to keep the mouth-breathing Sheeple happy. Both the GOP and Dems fully fund Big Brother spying on every American.
  • The corrupt Elites even give their CIA front company the cutsie name of "Palantir" - the seeing stone from the Lord of the Rings that was used to spy on people from afar.

(Daily Sheeple)  -  Yes, while a tyrannical government that violates the law and searches and seizes without probable cause and a warrant are realities that we should be concerned about, there is a tremendous threat coming from a company called Palantir, which is backed by the Central Intelligence Agency.
Palantir presents themselves as “We build products that make people better at their most important work — the kind of work you read about on the front page of the newspaper, not just the technology section.”
Indeed, we have read about some of their work on the front page of the newspaper, including the trial of the Oregon protests of 2016, where Palantir software was used to aid in sorting data for the FBI’s information they gathered from Facebook.
The CIA itself was an early investor in the startup through In-Q-Tel, the agency’s venture capital branch.

Palantir has landed “at least $1.2 billion” in federal contracts since 2009, according to an August 2016 report in Politico, but will not release the names of its government clientele.
However, since it is CIA-backed, it should be of significant concern to the American people, especially given the report from The Guardian which claimed that Palantir wields “as much real world power as Google.”
In The Guardian piece, it is noted:
Palantir, the CIA-backed startup, is Minority Report come true. It is all-powerful, yet no one knows it even exists. Palantir does not have an office, it has a “SCIF” on a back street in Palo Alto, California. SCIF stands for “sensitive compartmentalised information facility”.
Palantir says its building “must be built to be resistant to attempts to access the information within. The network must be ‘airgapped’ from the public internet to prevent information leakage.”
Palantir’s defence systems include advanced biometrics and walls impenetrable to radio waves, phone signal or internet. Its data storage is blockchained: it cannot be accessed by merely sophisticated hacking, it requires digital pass codes held by dozens of independent parties, whose identities are themselves protected by blockchain.
What is Palantir protecting? A palantir is a “seeing stone” in JRR Tolkien’s The Lord of the Rings; a dark orb used by Saruman to be able to see in darkness or blinding light. “Palantir” means “one that sees from afar”, a mythical instrument of omnipotence.
In 2004, Peter Thiel – the billionaire PayPal co-founder, Facebook investor and and latter-day Trump ally – created Palantir alongside Nathan Gettings, Joe Lonsdale, Stephen Cohen and Alex Karp. Their intention was to create a company that took Big Data somewhere no one else dared to go. In 2013, Karp, Palantir’s CEO, announced that the company would not be pursuing an IPO, as going public would make “running a company like ours very difficult”. This is why.
Palantir watches everything you do and predicts what you will do next in order to stop it. As of 2013, its client list included the CIA, the FBI, the NSA, the Centre for Disease Control, the Marine Corps, the Air Force, Special Operations Command, West Point and the IRS. Up to 50% of its business is with the public sector. In-Q-Tel, the CIA’s venture arm, was an early investor.
Palantir tracks everyone from potential terrorist suspects to corporate fraudsters (Bernie Madoff was imprisoned with the help of Palantir), child traffickers and what they refer to as “subversives”. But it is all done using prediction.
Palantir is at the heart of the US government, but with its other arm, Palantir Metropolis, it provides the analytical tools for hedge funds, banks and financial services firms to outsmart each other.
Yet, Palantir and its owners claim they are all about protecting the rights of the people from government surveillance.

CIA-Funded Kudzu of Silicon Valley

"The telescreen received and transmitted simultaneously. Any sound Winston made, above the level of a very low whisper, would be picked up by it; moreover, so long as he remained within the field of vision which the metal plaque commanded, he could be seen as well as heard.
There was of course no way of knowing whether you were being watched at any given moment. How often, or on what system, the Thought Police plugged in on any individual wire was guesswork. It was even conceivable that they watched everybody all the time. But at any rate they could plug in your wire whenever the wanted to. You had to live- did live, from habit that became instinct- in the assumption that every sound you made was overheard, and, except in darkness, every movement scrutinized."
