Yesterday Wikileaks released 8,761 CIA documents detailing the agency’s hacking of smart phones, routers, computers, and televisions. The CIA can even hack into devices that manufactures thought were secure–iPhones, iPads, and Android devices. The data dump also revealed that the CIA is infecting personal computers with malware and spyware–Windows, Mac OS/X, Solaris, and Linux included. They’ve even even figured out how to bypass anti-virus software so that their spyware cannot be detected. Your WiFi router is also something they monitor.
Even when you think your devices are “off,” the CIA has the ability to listen and watch.
And–this is huge in terms of the current news cycle–the CIA also managed to make it look like Russian hackers, not the CIA, are behind much of this.
What’s most disconcerting about all of this is that very few people seem to care! “I’m not doing or saying anything that could get me into trouble,” and “I’m not a terrorist,” is what I hear over and over.
But fast forward to the future when the leftist elites finally gain control of this nation and utilize this Big Brother technology to go after your guns, demand your gold, interfere with the way you discipline your children, crack down on a home Bible study for reading the first chapter of the book of Romans, or send in the Department of Homeland Security because you were heard screaming obscenities while the President was giving the State of the Union address.
Where are the protests across university campuses demanding freedom and privacy? There are none–they’re too busy protesting white privilege, whining about safe spaces, calling for censorship, wearing those silly pink pussy hats, and suppressing any idea that doesn’t conform to their world view.
