WikiLeaks Claims To Reveal How CIA Hacks TVs and Phones All Over The World

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

WEB Notes: In a new “leak,” it has been discovered the CIA and MI5 can  turn your television into their own personal spying device even when it is off. While they claim 85%” of smartphones are “weaponized.

Back in 2013 the CIO of the CIA said,

“You are aware of the fact that somebody can know where you are at all times, because you carry a mobile device, even if that mobile device is turned off,” he said. “You know this, I hope? Yes? Well, you should.”

“The value of any piece of information is only known when you can connect it with something else that arrives at a future point in time,” Hunt said. “Since you can’t connect dots you don’t have, it drives us into a mode of, we fundamentally try to collect everything and hang on to it forever.

“It is really very nearly within our grasp to be able to compute on all human generated information.”Source

When they tell you they collect every piece of digital information it means every, email, facebook and twitter post. It means every text message, phone call video session. It means everything; your medical records and lunch receipt, your firearm purchases and your donations receipts. It means everything you do is collected and catalogued. Read our article, “NSA Spy Program: Why Should I Be Concerned?

Why are we being told about this once again? So people will continue to lose faith in their governments so they will embrace globalism. Henry Kissinger said it best,

“Today Americans would be outraged if U.N. troops entered Los Angeles to restore order; tomorrow they will be grateful. This is especially true if they were told there was an outside threat from beyond, whether real or promulgated, that threatened our very existence. It is then that all peoples of the world will plead with world leaders to deliver them from this evil. The one thing every man fears is the unknown. When presented with this scenario, individual rights will be willingly relinquished for the guarantee of their wellbeing granted to them by their world government.”

The CIA has become the preeminent hacking operation, sneaking into high-tech phones and televisions to spy on people worldwide, according to an explosive WikiLeaks publication of purported internal CIA documents on Tuesday.

To hide its operations, the CIA routinely adopted hacking techniques that enabled them to appear as if they were hackers in Russia, WikiLeaks said.

WikiLeaks also claimed that nearly all of the CIA’s arsenal of privacy-crushing cyberweapons have been stolen, and the tools are potentially in the hands of criminals and foreign spies.

    Did you guys forget the NSA spy center in Utah’s Wasatch range, that was started in 2012 and has since been open for business collecting data on everyone. funny how it’s not mentioned anymore “DUH” Well that’s their job to spy on you collect anything and everything about you, yes your tax dollars, your labor is being used to rob you of your privacy, and with that by the way your information can then be used in so many ways to turn you into a terrorist or religious fanatic, this place in Utah is huge here are some of the specs.

    1 Visitor control center A $9.7 million facility for ensuring that only cleared personnel gain access.
    2 Administration Designated space for technical support and administrative personnel.
    3 Data halls Four 25,000-square-foot facilities house rows and rows of servers.
    4 Backup generators and fuel tanks Can power the center for at least three days.
    5 Water storage and pumping Able to pump 1.7 million gallons of liquid per day.
    6 Chiller plant
    About 60,000 tons of cooling equipment to keep servers from overheating.
    7 Power substation An electrical substation to meet the center’s estimated 65-megawatt demand.

    If i have to live without smart stuff i will and do, i got rid of my cable box and replaced it with an antenna less channel but who cares, i have a stupid phone, red box, netflix and a few others are our entertainment, i also use very strong passwords for my Router and pc’s change them often another item i use is a network monitor program to see who is on my network and data they are using. It’s never acceptable to spy or steal your life that belongs to you in any form or fashion, but the powers that be know no limitation and will and are destroying our way of life , to bring there own Dystopian future.

    Teach Me Your Paths
    Psa 25:1 A Psalm of David. Unto thee, O LORD, do I lift up my soul.
    O my God, I trust in thee: let me not be ashamed, let not mine enemies triumph over me.
    Yea, let none that wait on thee be ashamed: let them be ashamed which transgress without cause.
    Shew me thy ways, O LORD; teach me thy paths.
    Lead me in thy truth, and teach me: for thou art the God of my salvation; on thee do I wait all the day.
    Remember, O LORD, thy tender mercies and thy lovingkindnesses; for they have been ever of old.
    Remember not the sins of my youth, nor my transgressions: according to thy mercy remember thou me for thy goodness’ sake, O LORD.
    Good and upright is the LORD: therefore will he teach sinners in the way.
    The meek will he guide in judgment: and the meek will he teach his way.
    All the paths of the LORD are mercy and truth unto such as keep his covenant and his testimonies.
    For thy name’s sake, O LORD, pardon mine iniquity; for it is great.
    What man is he that feareth the LORD? him shall he teach in the way that he shall choose.
    His soul shall dwell at ease; and his seed shall inherit the earth.
    The secret of the LORD is with them that fear him; and he will shew them his covenant.
    Mine eyes are ever toward the LORD; for he shall pluck my feet out of the net.
    Turn thee unto me, and have mercy upon me; for I am desolate and afflicted.
    The troubles of my heart are enlarged: O bring thou me out of my distresses.
    Look upon mine affliction and my pain; and forgive all my sins.
    Consider mine enemies; for they are many; and they hate me with cruel hatred.
    O keep my soul, and deliver me: let me not be ashamed; for I put my trust in thee.
    Let integrity and uprightness preserve me; for I wait on thee.
    Redeem Israel, O God, out of all his troubles.

    • You are right Richard those Fusion Centers have not been discussed in awhile which is why I posted the article we wrote four years ago titled, “NSA Spy Program: Why Should I Be Concerned?” https://worldeventsandthebible.com/current-events/nsa-spy-program-why-be-concerned

      It is not that we need to be afraid, it is that we need to be aware and not feed the beast if you will.

      This network monitoring program…is it a piece of hardware or software? That sounds like a good idea…not just for this topic but for any “nosey neighbors”. Thank you.

      • Richard

        Well they can be both, you can buy a stand alone firewall or network monitor that would be hardware, then you have software versions, the software versions you can ether buy or can be freeware, do a search for network monitors or lan monitors there are several that you can try out and you should if you are not familiar with using them, you get to know your ip addresses or it can alert you to new ip that come on to your network, might be a neighbor trying to use you wi-fi trying to get something for free. anyway eagleflyfree hope this helps.

        • eagleflyfree

          Thank you Richard….yes this does help a lot!

  • eagleflyfree

    What are some ways to reduce our exposure? Other than not owning a smart tv, limiting electronic communication, using cash more. Thank you!

    • jackbolin

      While I have a cell phone, it is not a smart phone. I don’t own a smart tv. Am I trying to keep big brother from spying on me? Not really, lol…I’m simply not a “techy” person….I’m not sure I’m smart enough to operate a smart phone. Or better put….I can’t be bothered with learning how to operate one. My HDTV is quite enough for me…I don’t need a smart tv…I’m not at all worried about what the government knows about me. And I’m sure they know some stuff. I’ve been involved in patriot causes for over 20 years. I don’t care what they know. I trust my Father enough to know he’ll take care of me if I’m smart enough to stay away from certain groups. I know who the Kenite is…yet I wish him no harm. I know his place, his role, in prophecy….He will meet his final end in God’s time, and I’d never interfere with that timeline. We all need to take reasonable precautions, but more importantly, we need to trust our Father’s word that no harm will come to us. Common sense and a child-like faith will do wonders!

      • eagleflyfree

        Hello Jack, great to hear from you my friend! Thank you for your response as that makes total sense. Like you my HGTV will do quite well. I do have a smart phone but I don’t have any apps other than weather, traffic and such. I have a facebook account but I never have posted much. I use it more to keep track of my favorite musicians and the martial arts community which I am involved with. My friends list is only family and people I actually know lol. I do use cash to purchase ammo…just seems right. This end generation is an exciting time and it is comforting to know I have a true Christian family out there like you, Brandon, and many others that visit this site. Thank you again sir!

        • In the “great” state of CA next year it will be illegal to own certain firearms unless they are registered with the state as an “assault weapon” which removes many of your rights. There is also a background check for ammo. This will turn many people into felons. Now will the government intervene if they see you purchase X ammo when you claim not to possess that firearm?

          This is only one example of many as to why we should all understand and protect our privacy. I could be buying the ammo to reemburse a friend on the range or many other things. When our privacy is violated, we truly are no longer a free people.

          So cash in that example is now null and void. Interesting to see the doors close in. Never the less we have the Victory through Christ, but we do need to hold that line as long as we can doing everything we can to accomplish that.

          • eagleflyfree

            I guess we can’t beat the system but only hold the line. Thank you for helping me think this through

          • Not a problem eagleflyfree. You are right, all we can do is hold the line and that takes action on our part. I truly believe all of this technology as outstanding as it may be is and will be used against us. I am sure it is a part of the system Satan will use against our Father’s Saints.

      • Thank you for the comment and I hear what you are saying Jack. I happen to be a “techy” person and if it was not for that tech this site would not exist. Do you need this site, of course not. All we need is our Father. However, as long as this country has something called the Constitution we should all demand it is adhered too.

        I open my big mouth on here everyday, so that portion of my life I have made public. However, my private life is mine, my phone conversations are mine and no one elses business. If the government flips on the camera and mic on my PC, phone, etc I am concerned about that. Why? Because they are breaking the law plain and simple. If we spoke on the phone and I told you about my day that is our business and no one elses no matter how trivial the discussion was.

        While you may not have a smart TV today, tomorrow it will be the only option avalible. Just as with our vehicles and everything else. The “Internet of Things” is here to stay and the people are addicted to it. We can all go buy a used fridge or older vehicle, but we should not have to do that to keep our information private. When the people stop caring it only allows the monster to grow bigger and faster so we all hold that line.

        You mentioned God protecting people and He certainly can and does do that. However, that does not nessesiarly mean the protection you might think. How many Christians are killed and murdered each day? How many Christians lose their businesses or a small fortune because they do not support homosexual marriage for example?

        At some point the collected data from Christian business owners could mean their demise in a financial sense.

        Something to think about.

        • eagleflyfree

          Very well stated and definitely something to think about. What are some ways to at least minimize our exposure?

          • I see this from a different perspective. Let’s say the government makes a “new law” that bans lawful firearm owners from carrying on school grounds where they were allowed to by the previous “new law” that came before it. Within that “new law” there is the possibility that firearm owners could once again carry on school grounds if the “principal” signed a letter for each individual. Let’s say there is a group of concerned citizens who rallied the “principals” together and signed on big letter.

            Is it worth the effort to get those “principals” to agree and sign a letter? Will that “new law” just change down the road to deny the firearm owners their rights again? Of course it would.

            The point is, I see great efforts made by individuals and groups to work within these “new laws”. Why is my question? Those “new laws” are null and void to begin with. They violate the Constitution of the United States and that is the law. Anything else is a lie and the people should be holding on to that with everything they have.

            Some individuals who are well aware of the Constitution and good Americans by most peoples standards still allow court laws, which are laws of precedent to remove or degrade our Constitutional rights.

            To sum up, we should not be arguing with the government about their new laws or work within them as outlined in the first paragraph. We should point out those “laws” for the lies that they are. Those laws are not laws, they are literally trash and we need to make that known.

            Our people are so divided, they want to work with the law breakers instead of calling out the law breakers. We will never win that way. Only by standing firm to the founding laws of this nation.

            I am sure Jack is aware, there are many groups out there who work in unison to try and make this country better. They are our next door neighbors and friends and we need those groups and people to understand we cannot compromise.

            Why is this so important? As I have said before, I truly believe we live in the last days, but what if we are all wrong? Then we will have effectively given up because we think the end is near and I do not like that. No one should go get themselves in trouble. I am not talking about that. I am simply talking about speaking in black and white and pointing out the black and white law and standing by it which is known as the United States Constitution.

            I realize I did not answer your question. I always try and look at problems from many angles, this angle faces the problem rather than hiding from it. As you can tell by this site it is just my nature and who I am. To finally answer your question never put anything in digital form that might later harm you and your family. Think about the Christian bakers as example and their “crime”.

          • eagleflyfree

            Understood Brandon and I appreciate your honesty. By not answering my question directly you did answer it. Sometimes it’s not what we asked but what we needed to hear. I agree about this being the last days but 50 years in our Heavenly Father’s time line is nothing. If we are wrong then we need to consider what country we leave our children and grandchildren. I know it sounds like I’m all over the place with this topic but I’m simply putting the pieces together in my mind…I’m not the sharpest knife in the drawer but I continue to learn each day from this site and His Word.

          • You just said what I meant to say on the site a few days ago. 50 years of our time is milliseconds to our Father. 50 years to a man is a very long time and over half of his life, but to God it is not even a full blink of an eye. We all have to keep that in mind and always keep up the good fight!

            That makes two of us who were all over the place eagleflyfree. Let me keep the theme for a moment.

            Continuing with what I said above, compromising is what gives us the elected officials we have today. Because we buy into those lines of “Hope and Change” and “Make America Great Again”. Election after election the people are suckered by a new set of crooks controlled by the same kids of Satan. Just like the example about firearms above. We can fight their unjust so called “laws” but then they just change them and then we fight their new unjust “laws”. What sense does that make? None.

            If someone came offering us a “new Word of God” would there be any takers? I certainly hope not. But when we embrace their “new laws” that is exactly what we do. We toss out the truth and embrace the fake. Very disturbing. Without that Constitution, our God given rights will be removed.

            You are sharp eagleflyfree, you love our Father and you display it to Him each and everyday.

          • eagleflyfree

            Thank you. I will continue to educate myself so that I can do my part to hold the line while at the same time protecting my loved ones.

        • jackbolin

          Only thing i’d argue with you on that Brandon is that I do indeed need this site.
