So you think that it was great business sense and luck that made Google and Facebook so big? Think again!
Everyone has heard of venture funds. You have an idea for a business, and they give you the money to go and make your dream come true. But did you know that the CIA has its own venture fund? And did you know that Google and Facebook were backed by that same venture fund?. Check out In-Q-Tel on Crunchbase.
How It Works
Unfortunately, you wont find Google or Facebook listed if you go back in the records. This is because they are not permitted to disclose retail consumer investments that can impact the public. The are kept secret and are enforced by a strong NDA. This NDA forbids disclosing your partner (who gave you the money).
As part of your commitment, you must agree to ‘cooperation’ when it comes to information sharing now or down the road, such as location data on people using Facebook, Google. This should not surprise, after all, it is the CIA. The question is, where is all that data stored and for what purpose?. If it were not for Snowden, we could only guess about this. The name of the main program is PRISM but there are many others.
What Is PRISM?
PRISM began in 2007 in the wake of the passage of the Protect America Act under the Bush Administration. The program is operated under the supervision of the U.S. Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court (FISA Court, or FISC) pursuant to the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA). Its existence was leaked six years later by NSA contractor Edward Snowden, who warned that the extent of mass data collection was far greater than the public knew and included what he characterized as “dangerous” and “criminal” activities. The disclosures were published by The Guardian and The Washington Post on June 6, 2013.

CIA funded projects have a funny way of being successful investments. Rarely, you will come across a failure. Many wonder how Google and Facebook were able to do it, and that this is part of the Entrepreneur “Magic” that few have. Well we can say in the case of Google there was no Magic, they had a helping hand from a friend in the deep shadows.
Google and Facebook wanted to become huge – the CIA wanted information. So it was a cozy and rational partnership, right from that beginning. For Google and Facebook to become a giant companies, all they needed to do was share a little information about users – or lots as the case turns out to be.
Your data is collected and stored at very secure locations – used to feed Artificial Intelligence machine learning.

If Not For The CIA
The fact is, Google and Facebook would not be where they are today if not for the CIA.
“Two decades ago, the US intelligence community worked closely with Silicon Valley in an effort to track citizens in cyberspace. And Google is at the heart of that origin story. Some of the research that led to Google’s ambitious creation was funded and coordinated by a research group established by the intelligence community to find ways to track individuals and groups online.
The intelligence community hoped that the nation’s leading computer scientists could take non-classified information and user data, combine it with what would become known as the internet, and begin to create for-profit, commercial enterprises to suit the needs of both the intelligence community and the public. They hoped to direct the supercomputing revolution from the start in order to make sense of what millions of human beings did inside this digital information network. That collaboration has made a comprehensive public-private mass surveillance state possible today.”

Facebook: Its great to see that the world is finally waking up to these truths. All around the world, users went berserk after the data harvesting scandal with Cambridge Analytica.

“I have nothing to hide, so let them collect what they want” – a statement we hear all too often.
Let us imagine that some random person knocks on your door and asked for you to tell them everything you have said, done, emailed over the past 5 years. (1) you probably wont remember and (2) you will probably tell them to get lost!.
The point is, you are IN CONTROL and have the OPTION to tell them or not. With Google and Facebook, that OPTION does not exist!
