Profits and profitability go hand-in-hand with Google Inc.(GOOG), which once again surpassed all analysts estimates, reported profits in all operating areas with gains in old business lines and profits in new business areas as well.
Second-quarter sales, excluding revenue passed on to partner sites, rose to $6.92 billion, Mountain View, California- based Google said on its website. That topped $6.57 billion, the average estimate of analysts surveyed by Bloomberg. Net income gained 36 percent to $2.51 billion, or $7.68 a share, from $1.84 billion, or $5.71, a year
For the company who's motto is don't be evil, success has been like water going downhill, since it's inception in 1996 by two graduate students Larry page and Sergei Brin. By June 1999 the two graduate students, who didn't like each other initially, were collecting $25 million from investors, mostly venture-capital firms. Google less than 20 years old seems to have always been. It is like a fairytale come true. But the fairytale is in fact the rock upon which propaganda is built. Strip away the veneer of balance sheets and earnings reports, observe who really funds Google, what Google truly does, and the façade falls away like peeling paint.
The web is a giant graph and Google can run along the edges to the vertices of it faster than anyone dreamed. That is what made Google the most popular search engine in the world. But it also makes Google the de facto gatekeeper of world wide web, of it's dissemination of information, opinion, and the storage of data, often personal data. So, it is a control mechanism the control freaks cannot ignore.
The well unknown fact is that the venture-capital firms initially investing in Google were mostly owned by the strong arm of the US government, namely the CIA.
Robert David Steele, a 20-year Marine Corps infantry and intelligence officer and a former clandestine services case officer with the Central Intelligence Agency, is the CEO of OSS.net.Speaking to the Alex Jones Show, Steele elaborated on his previous revelations by making it known that the CIA helped bankroll Google at its very inception."I think Google took money from the CIA when it was poor and it was starting up and unfortunately our system right now floods money into spying and other illegal and largely unethical activities, and it doesn't fund what I call the open source world," said Steele, citing "trusted individuals" as his sources for the claim."They've been together for quite a while," added Steele
But Google far from being satisfied to collect data on the past or monitor events in real time actually wants to record your future.
The investment arms of the CIA and Google are both backing a company that monitors the web in real time — and says it uses that information to predict the future.The company is called Recorded Future, and it scours tens of thousands of websites, blogs and Twitter accounts to find the relationships between people, organizations, actions and incidents — both present and still-to-come. In a white paper, the company says its temporal analytics engine “goes beyond search” by “looking at the ‘invisible links’ between documents that talk about the same, or related, entities and events.”The idea is to figure out for each incident who was involved, where it happened and when it might go down. Recorded Future then plots that chatter, showing online “momentum” for any given event.“The cool thing is, you can actually predict the curve, in many cases,” says company CEO Christopher Ahlberg, a former Swedish Army Ranger with a PhD in computer science.
The really cool thing is that you can actually predict and quietly intercept unappreciated political groups as law-enforcement has already admitted to do to Ron Paul supporters in the MIAC report. It's Street view sweeps the airwaves like a vacuum cleaner for personal data, where Total Information Awareness left off Google picks up.
In Federal District Court in Oregon a class action suit was filed against Google on behalf of Vicki Van Valin and Neil Mertz seeking damages for invasion of privacy. “Users had an expectation of privacy with respect to the payload data collected and decrypted/decoded by Google. Because the GSV packet sniffing data collection was done in secret, users could not, and did not give their consent to Google’s activities,” the complaint said.And what GSV sniffs in Google's creepy little and Android broadcasts to the entire world.
First, and profoundly disturbing, is a new TechRepublic revelation in a post by security blogger Donovan Colbert.In setting up his new Android-based tablet, Mr. Colbert discovered that the Android operating system by default, i.e. without permission, automatically collected and implemented encrytion key passcodes to automatically gain access to private networks without the permission of the user. In Mr. Colbert's own words:"Google is not only storing a list of what hotspots you have visited, but any private encryption keys necessary to connect to those hotspots in the cloud.""The idea that every Android device connects with that access point shares our private corporate access keys with Google is pretty unacceptable.""Honestly if there is any data that shouldn't be harvested, stored and synched automatically between devices, it is encryption keys, passcodes and passwords."Second, we learned from WSJ privacy reporting that Google Android tracked users location a thousand times a day without the users' meaningful permission.
Google is among the cadre of of corporations who want to destroy Net Neutrality, take control of the Internet and carve out pieces of it for themselves like invaders diving up the spoils of conquest.
The prospect of a Google-Verizon agreement infuriates many consumer advocates, who feel that it would concentrate in a few corporations control of what to date has been a free and open Internet system in which consumers decide which companies are successful.“The point of a network neutrality rule is to prevent big companies from dividing the Internet between them,” said Gigi B. Sohn, president and a founder of Public Knowledge, a consumer advocacy group. “The fate of the Internet is too large a matter to be decided by negotiations involving two companies, even companies as big as Verizon and Google.”
Mean while Google hoards every scrap of your personal information with innocuous disregard, its CEO, Eric Schmidt guards his own just as zealously as it violates yours. As you can see in the video the Bilderberg group is very real and they have very real East German police force protecting their privacy.
Information is control and Google wants every scrap of it on every one of you. Those who have their privacy rule those who have their privacy invaded. Those who covet power seek every shred of information about those who want to be free of them. Google is a weapon of the covetous to use over the virtuous. Google is being evil.
