While we're talking about electronic eavesdropping and the technologies associated therewith, here's another article that I found and that a few of you also sent to me. It seems that the CIA (and that means MI-5, Surete, SISME, BND, Mossad, etc) want to spy on you through your television now:

The CIA wants to spy on you through your TV: Agency director says it will 'transform' surveillance Read more: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/sciencetech/article-2115871/The-CIA-wants-spy-TV-Agency-director-says-net-connected-gadgets-transform-surveillance.html#ixzz1pR7TNkWh

Now many of you, I suspect, are like me, and possibly think this is already being done (remember that mandated change a couple of years ago when everyone had to change to HD tv?). Well, here it is straight out of the horse's...er....mouth:

"Everything from remote controls to clock radios can now be controlled via apps - and chip company ARM recently unveiled low-powered, cheaper chips which will be used in everything from fridges and ovens to doorbells.

"The resultant chorus of 'connected' gadgets will be able to be read like a book - and even remote-controlled, according to CIA CIA Director David Petraeus, according to a recent report by Wired's 'Danger Room' blog.

"Petraeus says that web-connected gadgets will 'transform' the art of spying - allowing spies to monitor people automatically without planting bugs, breaking and entering or even donning a tuxedo to infiltrate a dinner party."

I suspect that what is really going on here is simply the usual ploy of the Powers That Be, namely, to talk of something they're already doing, as if it is in the future sometime. Ponder what we have: we have the NSA building a new super-monitoring and decryption facility in Utah, a former general now in charge of the CIA saying it wants to use our manifold interconnected gadgets to spy on us... in short, we are creating an electronic Big Brother to monitor all aspects of private life, the better to maintain the Empire. We're looking at yet an added layer of capability that could, additionally, enhance the capabilities of the "breakaway civilization" that Richard Dolan, I, and others, have speculated about.

Think about that for a moment, in connection with the previous blog about the new NSA super-monitoring and decryption center, for it may not be just human electronic communications they are interested in "cracking" and monitoring.... just a thought....

...see you on the flip side...

    I think regardless of any spying through the television, a better reason why the the thing is dangerous is because it is a device of mass hypnosis. Either reason though, spying or mass hypnosis, is a good reason to be rid of the danger, by unplugging the thing and throwing it in the trash.

      Could we be just THOUGHT in someone else’s Mind?

      If that is the case then how in the world do you —“Wrestle With Darkness?”

      (The Darkness isn’t as it first appears. It’s actually a place of deep regeneration and rejuvination. A black soil leading to fruitation! The “Prima Matera!”

    • Frank OHara on April 3, 2012 at 9:00 am

      “I’m told by a close friend, that TV has been looking at us since the 60s.”

      Well, maybe. In the early 1990’s, I learned that they could know what television channel you were watching just by driving by your home in a truck with surveilance systems to pick up the signal.

      I suspect cable TV suppliers can do this now but in the 1990’s, they could do it with broadcast TV.

    Just about every country with money enough to make such reports did. Aber, Deutschland nicht. I found it funny.Unfortunately I forgot where I saw this list.

  8. robert fritsche on March 30, 2012 at 2:20 pm

    I think they (whoever it might be) aren’t looking so much for an individual terrorist, or revolutionary element. With the computing capacity of gathering data and modern physics statistic calculations they can control mankind like an onion soup: give it here some heat, there some pepper, maybe some salt or cream, control the water(!), boil it down, eat it now, spit it out, wash it away….. cut new onions.
    With 9/11 they already proved their ability to maintain an evident lie throughout years now.
    Gathering, select and combine all kind of personal data empowers them to manipulate any social movement and to carry out surgical strikes on strategical targets (mental, emotional or physical strikes), before it even becomes organized, just putting down a certain consciousness or knowledge. Given the need and also the desire of communication there is no way to hide.
    In a military logic we would better do to shut up. But there’s also the hope to convince.

    • robert fritsche on March 30, 2012 at 3:14 pm

      instead “convince” I should better say “just to speak out”.

    • Robert Barricklow on March 31, 2012 at 8:08 am

      In military logic we must burn the village to save it. And, would it seem, a French Revolutionary logic as well. Although I do like the thought of arisotractic bankster’s heads on edge.

      • robert fritsche on April 2, 2012 at 4:13 pm

        In military and revolutionary logic it’s the village of the others that has to be burned to save ours. If I’d believe in this logic, I wouldn’t post here any comment.
        I do like to think that the problem is “our technical logic” that creates “our believe system”, within we find “them” and “us”, and this thinking has to change.
        Any “technic” or “technology”, as beneficial it is, implicates manipulation, exploitation and military warfare. “Internet” means both, “communication” and “control”.
        We lost the war, but we can win our life, being what we are (speak out), ready to die, when the others “us” believes, it must be the case, to “salvage” humanity.

        Yes, they know.
        Yes, they can.
        Yes, they don’t mind.
        Yes, it’s all us.
        Yes, we can change.

    • Robert Barricklow on March 31, 2012 at 4:15 pm

      I would diagree on maintaining an evident lie. The cat has been out of the bag since day one. Some say it’s about 50/50 on those believing the party line and those not swallowing any of red/blue pills.
      Altough, the lie is around the world many times over before truth can get even manage to get his trousers on, …he has & the jig is up.

      And they know it.

      • robert fritsche on April 3, 2012 at 2:59 am

        Maybe it depends on our emotional structure to buy it or not (the need of an authorized view or your capacity to think on your own) or on your information level, or on your believe system. I always doubted the way the towers fell down. Any child playing with sand castles know: it can’t happen this way. But I needed some years to switch from `doubt´ to no `believe at all´, to authorize myself to see, reinforced by new incoming informations from alternative investigators. And maybe I’m still wrong, who knows.
        In my surroundings most of the people even now don’t want to speak about it, and when they do, they think, it would be impossible to manage such a big fraud, or it’s absurd to think the american government would shoot down these buildings just to justify a war.
        When I said “maintain” I meant their power to control the discourse of the mainstream medias and opinion.
        Up to this event I still believed in a democratic communication and mutuate control. NaÏf and a kind of lazy. In some way it worked, there were a lot of people doing a very good job to investigate and publish a critic view, but the refusal of an official investigation “maintains” us in the state of just believe it or not.

        I always was afraid of there enormous military power. In this event I understood the blindness of our culture and the power of mind control and social engineering.

        The social and political consequences out of this event are monstrous.

        If you can’t trust in the public discourse and the academic neither, the whole world becomes narration, with more or less coherency. And there’s the significance of Joseph Farrels insistance on “footnotes”. It’s the only way to safeguard us from the naked dichotomy of just `believe or not believe´. A footnote you can follow and make yourself an idea.

        We are presenting at a huge collaps of our social and religious anchors. I’m not sure wether it’s just the effect of the internet or an induced and amplified move, to break down the old world and clear the way to a new one, be it a good or bad NWO. The consequence is the loss of social coherence and the capacity to act. Coming back to the meme of the blog, there lies the importance of the control of what is going on in the minds and hearts of the people. There’s no better way to do so, than reading blogs and forums, with automatically analysis software.

        I remember Joseph Farrel speaking about the destruction of the twin towers as a magic act on a symbolic level. (It was with George Ann Hughes on the Magic of Social Engineering). Maybe he’s right to think it wasn’t the american government representing anglo-saxon bankers interests, but there was another power on the shadow side, trying to traumatize and destabilize and finally show their power.

        To finalize: they (who?) maintain the magic of this event, amplified now by what they call `the financial crisis´. I’m afraid it’s just the emotional basis of upcoming events.

        Thanks for reading.

    This is getting out of hand kids!

    But I do have some more revelation of a spiritual nature conserning things like pyramids mega lithic structures and defending our planet in a different way! As in God can make the wisdom and knowledge of men look like foolsihness even today. If you want to see it Joesph you have to make a way out of no way for me to send it! As it is sort of a book letter. And I prefer my anonymity in this case? But from this topic or report I guess that is no longer possible for anybody!?

    Years ago it was the Japanese Sony Corp that developed HDTV, and it was obsolete, even before it became ‘factory ready’. The untold billions invested needed to be recouped, so here comes ‘Johnny Law’ to the rescue in the form of legislation to buy the antiquated HDTV technology, being mandated to the market-place by law; just like the insurance-care bill being stealth painted into law, as we speak, by the 9 Supreme Denial Black-Robed Traitors of today.
    By the mid to late 80s, it was already seen, that the computer technologies were going to become diditally interactive, thus cancelling-out the market share of the HDTV’s investments.
    Of course, this is just one layer of decption cloaked in truth. Because, as we all know, the wand’s true power is making the hand that wields it appear otherwise empty.

    • Charlie Primero on March 30, 2012 at 11:39 am

      Interesting. I always wondered why the mandated ‘switch to digital’ happened so fast and easy. Thanks.

      • HAL838 on April 3, 2012 at 12:41 am

        Because “digital” is outside of nature and kills.
        Everything THEY give us is to kill us slowly
        while taking ALL our money.

        Oxygen levels from 24% when I was in grade school,

        destroying all the oxygen-making machines,
        but by burning, to boot !

    Like others here, I figure that they’ve been doing this through the TVs, especially the digital HDTV ones for awhile…

    Personally,I don’t have a new-fangled TV, but Larry, I like the towel over the TV idea nevertheless…no use in making it easy for “them.”

    Hi Dr. Farrell and readers,

    “Now many of you, I suspect, are like me, and possibly think this is already being done (remember that mandated change a couple of years ago when everyone had to change to HD tv?)”-

    as the saying goes, the minute a new technology is announced it’s already been there for at least 20 years-

    I have a very good friend who is one of the most down to earth people I’ve ever known, but very intuitive- yet, years ago, she confessed (long before the word “digital” was even a concept let alone a reality) she didn’t have “a good feeling” about her TV and would always hang a towel over the screen when she wasn’t watching it- she told me (albeit very sheepishly): “I do that because otherwise I feel like I’m being watched”-

    make of the info what you will- I’m not inventing the story nor do I think she’s into inventing imaginary boogey men- she’s too down to earth for that- but her intuition about other things in life has always amazed me because she’s very seldom wrong with her intuitions/observations-


  13. Tor on March 30, 2012 at 7:07 am

    As I’m constantly bombarded with this “Hitler is coming to get you” Meme, and told that it has something to do with my Government becoming increasingly more tyrannical, I wonder about something. Where does one go to apply for a job working for this literally massive spy network that is alleged to be in the process of being created (or already exists)? You would think they would be running ads all over the place. (“Have you ever wanted to be like James Bond…The CIA, and NSA are Now Hiring spies in record numbers…Apply Today..Blah blah blah.”) If this is really happening, you would think that it would require a massive labor force, not just to spy on every single American, but to build, install, program the computers, and maintain all the equipment needed for such an effort. Not saying that it’s impossible to do, and of course we already know that they do spy on us. I’m not saying that spying is not happening, but perhaps not in the massive way that Alex Jones talks about, as he Tavistock, shell shocks you, in his attempts to freak people out. As you say Dr. Farrell, I remain skeptical, and I suspect that a bunch of elites are trying to steer the country in a particular direction.

    There’s no HD requirement–digital yes, but even then, with an adapter, you can use an old analog TV.

    The bigger problem omitted by the articles is the cable box, that can do all sorts of tracking and even have mics and cameras.

      Hi Jay,

      you’re absolutely right- but please refer to my recent posting and make of the info what you will-


      • Jay on March 30, 2012 at 1:10 pm


        But how would that TV on the shelf be associated with your friend? I’ve often thought the technology your friend fears may in fact exist (see Ruth Drown), but that it’s very unlikely that what you or I would call big brother could have any exclusive use of said technology. In other words, its use would involve so many other factors than a web tracker (I count 4 on this website), that those factors would make the tech nearly unusable for controlling others. Also if a simple TV can do the spying so could a digital wrist watch, or a lot of other things.

        It’s the fact that this article skips cable boxes and Google and Amazon that bothers me the most.

        • LSM on April 2, 2012 at 9:36 am

          “I’ve often thought the technology your friend fears may in fact exist (see Ruth Drown)”- that was exactly my point- but who is Ruth Down? (please forgive my ignorance and inform me)-

          “It’s the fact that this article skips cable boxes and Google and Amazon that bothers me the most.”- not only you- just goes to show us how a control system has been in place for decades and if they choose to spy on us unimportant peons, the technology is already there- that was the point of my posting-

          many regards,
