The CIA controls Big Tech; Big Tech controls you

Have you ever heard of In-Q-Tel?

Here’s how corporate-controlled Wikipedia describes In-Q-Tel: “An American not-for-profit venture capital firm based in Arlington, Virginia. It invests in high-tech companies to keep the Central Intelligence Agency, and other intelligence agencies, equipped with the latest in information technology in support of United States intelligence capability.”

While you gossiped about Will Smith or waved a Ukrainian flag, did you have any clue that the CIA has had its own venture capital firm since 1998?

On the In-Q-Tel (IQT) website, they openly explain their mission: “To invest in cutting-edge technologies to enhance the national security of the United States.” (See some of the companies they’ve invested in here.)

Jeffrey Smith, the former general counsel of the CIA, was one of a small group of intelligence community insiders who helped set up In-Q-Tel. He explains the firm’s name as such: “We really needed something that also had appeal to a wider audience and, frankly, had some sex to it.”

Thus, In-Q-Tel is named after Q, the fictional character who makes gadgets for James Bond. Those murderous spies are so damn clever, aren’t they?

“Much of the touch-screen technology used now in iPads and other things came out of various companies that In-Q-Tel identified,” Smith told NPR in 2012. IQT also bonded very early with an obscure little company you may have heard of: Google. The collaboration started when IQT funded a company that connected satellite images and maps. That company was later bought up by Google and became Google Earth.

“The U.S. Department of Defense’s bloated budget, along with CIA venture capital, helped to create tech giants, including Amazon, Apple, Facebook, Google, and PayPal,” explains T. J. Coles, director of the Plymouth Institute for Peace Research. “The government then contracts those companies to help its military and intelligence operations. In doing so, it makes the tech giants even bigger.”

Coles adds: “The companies that many of us take for granted — including Amazon, Apple, Facebook, Google, Microsoft, and PayPal — are connected indirectly and sometimes very directly to the U.S. military-intelligence complex.”

According to a detailed report by Open the Government, Jeff Bezos and Amazon were favorites of the U.S. intelligence “community” from Day One and they still enjoy a rather cozy and lucrative relationship. Currently, more than half of the former government employees hired by Amazon have been from the Defense Department.

Amazon also provides cloud services to the CIA — at a cost of billions. Also, in 2013, Amazon signed a Pentagon IT contract for $10 billion to create the Joint Enterprise Defense Infrastructure program (JEDI). According to the Pentagon, Amazon technology supports their “lethality and enhanced operational efficiency.”

After a more recent CIA-Amazon deal in November 2020, a company spokesperson explained that Amazon is “honored to continue to support the intelligence community as they expand their transformational use of cloud computing.”

Another company/product directly funded by the CIA and In-Q-Tel is the data visualization tool, Palantir. IQT invested in the early 2000s and Palantir is now worth roughly $38 billion. Palantir was the brainchild of Peter Thiel — a co-founder of PayPal, the first outside investor in Facebook, and a graduate of the World Economic Forum’s Young Global Leaders indoctrination camp, I mean… program.

“Palantir and its ability to make sense of a disordered mass of data are highly valued by spies,” explains journalist, Thibault Henneton. Palantir consultants include former CIA director George Tenet and former U.S. Secretary of State, Condoleezza Rice.

Do you get it yet?

Our lives are currently being manipulated and controlled by a shadow government that transcends national borders or loyalty. This corporate-state nexus coerces you into focusing on trivialities like Hollywood, party politics, etc. Meanwhile, the clowns you vote for, the media you watch, and the social media you obsess over are all owned and operated by (mostly) faceless psychopaths that move effortlessly between the “public” and “private” sectors.

Unless and until we say no to the monopoly capitalists, ruthless spies, and sociopathic transhumanists, we remain willing slaves to a lethal and immoral system. They manufacture our opinions, our desires, our dreams. But their power is so, so tenuous.

If it’s true freedom and autonomy you seek, all you have to do is stop conforming and stop fearing the wrath of the hive mind. Sure, it’s never easy to buck the system but if you don’t, you are living a life of delusion, submission, and fear.

The choice is yours, my friends…
