Healthcare.gov exposed as data-gathering honey pot to shamelessly harvest private consumer data and turn it over to the NSA

NaturalNews) The pieces of the puzzle on Obamacare are finally coming together. Yesterday it was revealed during congressional testimony that the Healthcare.gov website contains a hidden disclaimer which reads, “You have no reasonable expectation of privacy regarding any communication or data transmitting or stored on this information system.”

This is an open admission that the site intends to share your data with other government entities. It also means the entire website violates federal law because it does not comply with HIPAA regulations for medical privacy. Click here to watch the astonishing video testimony.

But this isn’t the only evidence now emerging.

It also turns out that an NSA-funded entity actually helped build Healthcare.gov! Kit Daniels has just published a groundbreaking story that links the CIA venture capital firm “In-Q-Tel” to the Healthcare.gov data collection technology provider known as Socrata.

“Socrata will work with the CIA and other intelligence agencies to transform raw data into a format easily utilized and accessible to the intelligence community,” writes Daniels. “Healthcare.gov captures the personal data provided during the Obamacare enrollment process for this spy grid database.”

Clever ploy to sweep up all the private data of the sheeple

So far, only brainwashed sheeple are even attempting to sign up for health care under Healthcare.gov. Anybody else who has been paying attention knows that any information you hand over to HHS goes right to the NSA.

Healthcare.gov is specifically designed to gather your most intimate details such as social security number, annual salary, place of employment, immigration status, military background, criminal history, physical place of residence, bank account numbers and much more. This information is simply shuttled directly to the NSA where it is then used to cross-tabulate all your phone calls, texts, social media posts, website surfing habits, credit card purchase habits and much more.

Combined with mobile device tracking technology which has been widely acknowledged to already exist, the NSA can even compile a minute-by-minute map of your movements, purchases and interactions with other people. Through this analysis, the NSA can determine who you are meeting or hanging out with.

Jim Marrs, author of numerous books on the real history of the United States, told me, “This alone is reason enough to not sign up for Obamacare.”

More than a rip-off; it’s an NSA front

He’s right, of course. The Obamacare mandate is much more than just a health care rip-off and a way to destroy the jobs base in America while stealing billions of dollars from taxpayers and handing it over to the drug companies and cancer clinics. It’s actually a way to sucker people into turning over their most private details to the NSA… voluntarily!

The government is so incompetent in all this, however, that even its fake data-mining front (Healthcare.gov) can’t seem to function long enough for all the sheeple to type in all their private details yet. The only thing preventing the most massive data-mining surveillance operation in history, in other words, is the disastrous incompetence of Obama administration project managers who can’t even seem to figure out the basics of computer programming.

If you want to know just how much of a total joke this fake Healthcare.gov front-end really is, check out the Javascript file found here. (Until they remove it, anyway.)

This file on Healthcare.gov contains “dummy data” that includes names like “Han Solo,” “Chewbacca” and “Leia Organa” (Princess Leia from Star Wars). This is what $600 million buys you under Obama’s leadership: fantasy characters and Javascript gobbledygook.

It’s all one big joke, you see, being played out on the American people. I am convinced that Healthcare.gov was never intended to really function. It’s all a desperate, late-stage ploy to sweep up all the private data of the most gullible people in society to be used in some nefarious way as the crumbling U.S. empire implodes from outrageous debt and suffocating entitlement payouts.

You can bet I’m not handing over my social security number to Healthcare.gov. And anyone else who wants to keep their details private needs to learn to NEVER trust government with anything. Be especially careful not to trust the Obama administration, a dark legacy built on a never-ending cascade of lies and criminality.

Under Obama, the U.S. empire is steeped in such evil, criminal acts that the world’s nations are now petitioning the United Nations to stop America from running its nefarious surveillance programs.

Obama now makes Bush look like a saint.

Dianne Feinstein Accidentally Confirms That NSA Tapped The Internet Backbone

It’s widely known that the NSA has taps connected to the various telco networks, thanks in large part to AT&T employee Mark Klein who blew the whistle on AT&T’s secret NSA room in San Francisco. What was unclear was exactly what kind of access the NSA had. Various groups like the EFF and CDT have both been asking the administration to finally come clean, in the name of transparency, if they’re tapping backbone networks to snarf up internet communications like email. So far, the administration has declined to elaborate. Back in August, when the FISA court declassified its ruling about NSA violations, the third footnote, though heavily redacted, did briefly discuss this “upstream” capability:

In short, “upstream” capabilities are tapping the backbone itself, via the willing assistance of the telcos (who still have remained mostly silent on all of this) as opposed to “downstream” collection, which requires going to the internet companies directly. The internet companies have been much more resistant to government attempts to get access to their accounts. And thus, it’s a big question as to what exactly the NSA can collect via its taps on the internet backbone, and the NSA and its defenders have tried to remain silent on this point, as you can see from the redactions above.

However, as Kevin Bankston notes, during Thursday’s Senate Intelligence Committee hearing, Dianne Feinstein more or less admitted that they get emails via “upstream” collection methods. As you can see in the following clip, Feinstein interrupts a discussion to read a prepared “rebuttal” to a point being made, and in doing so clearly says that the NSA can get emails via upstream collections:

Upstream collection… occurs when NSA obtains internet communications, such as e-mails, from certain US companies that operate the Internet background, i.e., the companies that own and operate the domestic telecommunications lines over which internet traffic flows.

She clearly means “backbone” rather than “background.” She’s discussing this in an attempt to defend the NSA’s “accidental” collection of information it shouldn’t have had. But that point is not that important. Instead, the important point is that she’s now admitted what most people suspected, but which the administration has totally avoided admitting for many, many years since the revelations made by Mark Klein.

So, despite years of trying to deny that the NSA can collect email and other communications directly from the backbone (rather than from the internet companies themselves), Feinstein appears to have finally let the cat out of the bag, perhaps without realizing it.
