“A Party member lives from birth to death under the eye of the Thought Police. Even when he is alone he can never be sure that he is alone. Wherever he may be, asleep or awake, working or resting, in his bath or in bed, he can be inspected without warning and without knowing that he is being inspected. Nothing that he does is indifferent. His friendships, his relaxations, his behaviour towards his wife and children, the expression of his face when he is alone, the words he mutters in sleep, even the characteristic movements of his body, are all jealously scrutinized. Not only any actual misdemeanour, but any eccentricity, however small, any change of habits, any nervous mannerism that could possibly be the symptom of an inner struggle, is certain to be detected.”…George Orwell, “1984”

“We control life, Winston, at all its levels. You are imagining that there is something called human nature which will be outraged by what we do and will turn against us. But we create human nature. Men are infinitely malleable.”…George Orwell, “1984″

“We are being lied to on a scale unimaginable by George Orwell.”…Citizen Wells

“This Is How Amazon’s Alexa Records And Shares Private Conversations Without Your Permission

As it turns out, the scandal over Amazon’s Alexa voice-controlled personal assistant recording and sharing private conversations both with hackers and with people on the users’ contact list is much more serious than the company had feared.

As Bloomberg reported, Amazon responded to a KIRO 7 news report about a couple who received a call from a friend saying “unplug your Alexa devices right now. You’re being hacked” after the company’s device had shared a private conversation without explicit permission.

Amazon offered a complex, meandering “explanation” for the series of strange coincidences that triggered Alexa to record and share a couple’s private conversation. It started with Alexa being triggered when it heard a word that sounded like “Alexa” – the command for the technology activate. Here are the details:

Amazon explained the series of events that triggered the episode in an emailed statement. The Echo woke after hearing a word in the couple’s conversation that sounded like “Alexa” — the usual trigger to begin recording. The speaker later heard “send message” during the conversation, at which point the device asked, “to whom?” The pair continued talking in the background and the Echo’s system interpreted part of the chat to identify a name in the couple’s contact list. Alexa then asked aloud if they wanted to send a message to that contact and heard “right” in more background conversation.

“As unlikely as this string of events is, we are evaluating options to make this case even less likely,” the company said.

The report invigorated privacy concerns as internet-connected devices like the Amazon Echo become ubiquitous in homes. Amazon in 2014 introduced the new line of devices, which can also stream music and order goods from Amazon via voice command. It has been busy introducing updated versions and adding features to sell more devices than rivals like Alphabet Inc. and Apple Inc., which offer their own versions.

The “explanation” suggests that consumers should be extremely careful of what they say around their personal assistants to the point where more users should consider deactivating the device when it’s not in use. And there’s plenty: more than 60 million U.S. consumers will use a smart speaker at least once a month this year, with more than 40 million of them using Amazon’s devices, according to eMarketer Inc.”

From “1984” by George Orwell.

“He thought of the telescreen with its never-sleeping ear. They could spy upon you night and day”

“Behind Winston’s back the voice from the telescreen was still babbling away about pig-iron and the overfulfilment of the Ninth Three-Year Plan. The telescreen received and transmitted simultaneously. Any sound that Winston made, above the level of a very low whisper, would be picked up by it, moreover, so long as he remained within the field of vision which the metal plaque commanded, he could be seen as well as heard. There was of course no way of knowing whether you were being watched at any given moment. How often, or on what system, the Thought Police plugged in on any individual wire was guesswork. It was even conceivable that they watched everybody all the time. But at any rate they could plug in your wire whenever they wanted to. You had to live — did live, from habit that became instinct — in the assumption that every sound you made was overheard, and, except in darkness, every movement scrutinized.

Winston kept his back turned to the telescreen. It was safer, though, as he well knew, even a back can be revealing.”

“His earlier thought returned to him: probably she was not actually a member of the Thought Police, but then it was precisely the amateur spy who was the greatest danger of all. He did not know how long she had been looking at him, but perhaps for as much as five minutes, and it was possible that his features had not been perfectly under control. It was terribly dangerous to let your thoughts wander when you were in any public place or within range of a telescreen. The smallest thing could give you away. A nervous tic, an unconscious look of anxiety, a habit of muttering to yourself — anything that carried with it the suggestion of abnormality, of having something to hide. In any case, to wear an improper expression on your face (to look incredulous when a victory was announced, for example) was itself a punishable offence. There was even a word for it in Newspeak: facecrime, it was called.”

“He took his scribbling pad on his knee and pushed back his chair so as to get as far away from the telescreen as possible. To keep your face expressionless was not difficult, and even your breathing could be controlled, with an effort: but you could not control the beating of your heart, and the telescreen was quite delicate enough to pick it up. He let what he judged to be ten minutes go by, tormented all the while by the fear that some accident — a sudden draught blowing across his desk, for instance — would betray him.”

    fhl………..
    ………..old TERRAPIN FACE, and his slimy friends will more than likely go to their graves without ever telling the truth about their hit on Seth Rich. Proving them guilty will have to be done by a skilled prosecutor. It will require a SMOKING GUN SORT OF CONVICTION TO WHICH THE STRENGTH IS COMPARABLE TO A DNA CONVICTION.

  5. oldsailor85

    AND……..
    …………Mzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz POOSI talks about GIGGLE FITS. She says this because this is how she induces orgasms for herself. She has a GIGGLE FIT, and VOILA she GETS OFF!!!! SICK,SICK,SICK. STANDARD PRACTICE FOR HER!!!!!

  6. oldsailor85

    ALSO……….
    ……….SETH RICH’S FAMILY NEVER HAD THE MONEY TO HIRE SPECIAL INVESTIGATORS OR HIGH POWER LAWYERS. SUDDENLY THEY HAVE THE SERVICES OF A SOETORO HIGH POWER ATTORNEY WHO IS RIGHT UP NEXT TO LIL BARRY AND IS A PARTNER IN AN EXTREMELY HIGH PROFILE LAW FIRM. LEAVE IT TO LIL BARRY………MAYBE HE FEELS LIKE SOMEBODY IS GETTING REALLY CLOSE TO EXPOSING HIM FOR WHAT HE REALLY IS. THIS WOULD BE A SOETORO DISTRACTION. HEY BARRY…………HERE COMES THE JUDGE! ……. BETTER START PACKING UP……..KENYA HAS BEEN LOOKING FOR THEIR LOST VILLAGE IDIOT. har har

  7. oldsailor85

  8. oldsailor85

    THAT IS WHY……..
    ……….FLIES CONSTANTLY ORBIT YOUR FACE………..THEY SMELL APE $HIT!!!!!!!

  9. oldsailor85

    QUESTION……….
    ………..ALLEGEDLY SETH RICH WAS STILL ALIVE WHEN HE WAS TAKEN TO THE HOSPITAL. IN REALITY HIS WOUND WAS CONSIDERED TO BE SUPERFICIAL……….OBVIOUSLY HE WAS MADE DEAD, BY SOMEBODY WHO APPEARED TO BE A HOSPITAL STAFF MEMBER WHEN IT WAS DISCOVERED THAT THE HIT ON RICH WAS BOTCHED.
    WE SAW THE SAME EXACT TACTIC USED ON THE FEMALE ENTERTAINER WHO CALLED MICHAEL A TRANSGENDER. SHE WAS ALSO HIT. YOU DON’T NEED TO BE A PHD TO PUT THIS TOGETHER.
    WE ALSO SAW THE SAME TACTIC USED ON MZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ. FUDDY DUDDY. HER DEMISE OCCURRED IN SPITE OF THE PRESENCE OF TWO COURT APPOINTED US MARSHALS WHO WERE ACCOMPANYING HER. IT IS POSSIBLE THAT ONE OR BOTH OF THEM GAVE HER A MASSIVE DOSE OF COCAINE IN A UNDERWATER SHOT…… OUT OF SIGHT ….OUT OF MIND. BOTH OF THE MARSHALS WERE PROMOTED,AND THEIR BOSS WAS MOVED UP SUBSTANTIALLY……..AGAIN YOU DON’T NEED A PHD TO SEE THROUGH THIS CRAPOLA.
    ……………JIM MCDOUGAL RECEIVED A MIDNIGHT SHOT FOR A ALLEGED HEART CONDITION. THIRTY MINUTES LATER HE WAS DEAD. THE SHOT INDUCED THE HEART CONDITION………A MASSIVE OVERDOSE OF COCAINE……….YOU DON’T NEED A PHD TO SEE THROUGH THAT ONE EITHER.

    President Trump’s……….
    …………war with FBI-DOJ is without PRECEDENT. Both the DOJ and FBI have tried very hard to get everybody on their side……….BUT when the CRIMINALITY is being carried out by these departments then it is time for the intervention of the SCOTUS. There is CLEARLY a Constitutional CRISIS at hand, and only the SCOTUS can resolve it. Otherwise the problem could become a CATASTROPHE FOR our Constitution. Yes Congress could also solve it but to date only Gowdy, Nunes, Jordan, Goodlatte, Grassley etc have continued to pursue the CRIMINAL BEHAVIOR of both the DOJ and the FBI. Only the SCOTUS can now settle it all.

    fhl………..
    ………….then if there are TWO dads, then the kids are NOT BORN to either DAD. With respect to the Soetoro family it seems QUEER that children were allegedly born to one of the two dads. I EMPHATICALLY REPEAT THE WORD…..”.QUEER”. WHEN A MAN IS MARRIED TO ANOTHER MAN SUCH A MARRIAGE DOES NOT PRODUCE BIOLOGICALLY RELATED CHILDREN. THE MALE OF OUR SPECIES DOES NOT CARRY AND NURTURE EMBRYOTIC CREATIONS IN A WOMB. THIS SORT OF NOTION CONFIRMS THAT HOMOSEXUALITY IS AN ILLNESS OF THE MIND.

  13. Since it’s Sunday:

  14. fhl, That was brilliant; thanks for posting it. Lots of food for thought in a few sentences.
