Code Named "Bumblehive". NSA's New 1,000,000,000,000,000 Gigabytes Data Center.


Chuck Frank

72 Fusion Centers are an intricate nationwide web of shared data
collection, and set in place to snoop into our cellphones and e-mails
while local law enforcement and neighborhood spies feed that
confidential information to those powers at be. Don’t forget, it is
all for your own “security” so just relax. Relax? I thought that we
all had the right to feel secure in our own person or homes, however,
having a Fusion Center in Sacramento isn’t exactly making me feel all
that secure. No, I’m actually feeling the opposite for there is
something here that is telling me that our government isn’t quite
giving us the WHOLE truth about a lot of things. That is obvious. So
then, what do we have? We’ve got a lot more than just your friendly
neighborhood watch group looking after you, and for those of you who
didn’t know, there is a mega Data Center being built in Bluffdale, Utah
which is a, not so secret, NSA project, and it can house all of the
personal and PRIVATE INFORMATION of every person in the U.S. Well,
that’s just fine and dandy. The center is 1,000,000 square feet and is
code named the “BUMBLEHIVE.” As for the amount of information that can
be stored, it will have an astounding storage capacity of
1,000,000,000,000,000 gigabytes and it’s all for the “good” of the
nation. NSA is on a path towards building this first exaflop machine
(1 quintillion instructions per second) by 2018. Naturally, NSA denies
that they have any interest in “tracking” every citizen even though
they do have the capability of eaves dropping on every American.
Let’s reverse gears. Does anyone remember 9/11 when President Bush
said they were “only” eaves dropping on international calls, while all
along, warrantless domestic calls were in the mix? At that time the CEO
of Quest Communications said that he would not comply with warrantless
wiretaps. Presently, he is in prison for “insider trading.” Shall we
connect the dots? He is presumably the wealthiest person behind bars
in America. Here’s a footnote; The U.S. Government stopped doing
business with Quest after they refused to do warrantless wiretaps.

As for the ongoing surveillance that is happening today, in their
own words, NSA gives us a snapshot of their data collection efforts
which is for the “protection” of the nation.
“For security reasons, it is unrealistic to expect a complete list
of information we collect for our national citizen database. In the
spirit of openness and transparency however, here is a partial list:”

* internet searches * websites visited * e-mails sent and received *
social media activity (Facebook, Twitter, etc) * blogging activity
including posts read, written, and commented * videos watched and/or
uploaded online * photos viewed and/or uploaded online * music
downloads * mobile phone GPS-location data * mobile phone apps
downloaded * phone call records * text messages sent and received *
online purchases and auction transactions * bookstore receipts * credit
card/ debit card transactions * bank statements * cable television
shows watched and recorded * commuter toll records * parking receipts *
electronic bus and subway passes / Smartpasses * travel itineraries *
border crossings * surveillance cameras * medical information including
diagnoses and treatments * prescription drug purchases * guns and
ammunition sales * educational records * arrest records * driver
license information

George Orwell just rolled over in his grave.


Bumblehive is the alleged code name for the NSA’s new multi-billion dollar spy center in Utah although the official name appears to be Stellar Wind. . It is the mother of all data collection. Bumblehive most likely is a spin off from this word. Who says the feds don’t have a sense of humor? Today is the reported day of some kind of ribbon cutting ceremony. Since there’s little info to be found on the ceremony, it must be assumed it’s a secret one and not many will get close enough to spy on the spies.

I’ve been trying to put myself in the shoes of the NSA to figure out what’s going on. If I had to hire contractors to do the most sensitive, most secretive jobs in the inner workings of the facility, who would I get? Well, that’s a no brainer. Of course it would be some shady companies with ties to Israel with a history of corruption and staffed with mostly unstable individuals. Backdoor men hanging the backdoor that leads straight to Tel Aviv. Why should we expect otherwise?
