Amazon, Google and Facebook have taken over the world and are now a threat to our very existence.
Below, we’ll take a closer look at some of their more controversial practices:
People usually think Amazon is an e-commerce business, but that’s just one part of a much larger picture. For example, Amazon Web Services has hundreds of government agencies as customers.
Amazon’s Echo (and known colloquially as “Alexa”) came under scrutiny after a family told KIRO 7 that their Amazon device recorded a conversation they were having in their home, and sent it to a random contact.
The contact then alerted them to the fact that he had heard everything they said and sent the couple the email he had received with the audio files.
“My husband and I would joke and say I’d bet these devices are listening to what we’re saying,” Danielle said, noting that they never imagined the smart device would record their private conversations and then make them public.
After unplugging all of the devices, Danielle said she called Amazon multiple times before she received a response.
When an Alexa engineer finally looked into Danielle’s claims, she said he acknowledged that the device had recorded conversations inside her home and emailed them to a random contact.
Which begs the question “is Amazon’s Alexa, actually, a spying device?”
Amazon’s Facial Recognition Technology
According to an article published by the Ron Paul Institute, “Amazon is also seeking profit from selling to government agencies facial recognition technology that can aid in conducting mass surveillance.”
According to a resolution filed by Amazon shareholders, they “are concerned Amazon’s facial recognition technology (“Rekognition”) poses risk to civil and human rights and shareholder value.
Civil liberties organizations, academics, and shareholders have demanded Amazon halt sales of Rekognition to government, concerned that our Company is enabling a surveillance system “readily available to violate rights and target communities of color.” Four hundred fifty Amazon employees echoed this demand, posing a talent and retention risk.
Brian Brackeen, former Chief Executive Officer of facial recognition company Kairos, said, “Any company in this space that willingly hands [facial recognition] software over to a government, be it America or another nation’s, is willfully endangering people’s lives.””
Upon hearing the name “Google”, most people think of the search engine. Very few people actually understand how dangerous the company has become. Google is intimately involved with the Military Industrial Complex, in the development of surveillance (i.e. spying) technologies, face recognition and real-time tracking.

And that’s just barely scratching the surface.
Google is Working on Robots for the DoD
Back in 2013, Google has acquired Boston Dynamics, a military robotics contractor best known for projects that were funded by DARPA, which is part of the Department of Defense (DoD).
About 11 years ago, Boston Dynamics has uploaded the following video of “Big Dog” — one of their advanced robotics projects, — and it looks creepy, to say the least:
You can easily imagine an army of similar robots being weaponized and deployed against foreign or domestic enemies of the state. And that’s just one of the many similar projects that Boston Dynamics is currently working on.
The following is a review of Black Mirror’s “Metalhead” episode, where you can make an idea of how Bosotn Dynamics’ robots can be weaponized:
As a matter of fact, the “sins” of Google are so many that it would require an entire article dedicated to the subject.
Google Engages in Censorship
According to investigative reporter Jon Rappoport, who was nominated for a Pulitzer Prize and was a candidate for a US Congressional seat in the 29th District of California, Google is already turning into the dystopian Ministry of Truth.
More and more people in the awakened community are worried that the very survival of our species is being threatened by Google’s agenda of complete domination.
Is Google Home A Spying Device?
Just as Amazon Echo/Alexa, Google Home is also suspected of being a spying device:
“Google and Amazon executives want you to think that Google Home and Amazon Echo are there to help you out at the sound of your voice. In fact, they’re all about snooping on you and your family in your home and gathering as much information on your activities as possible,” said John M. Simpson, Consumer Watchdog’s Privacy and Technology Project Director, in a news release.
“You might find them useful sometimes, but think about what you’re revealing about yourself and your family, and how that information might be used in the future.”
Digital home assistants like Google Home and Amazon Echo may be listening to you at all times, according tot he products’ own patent information.
Consumer Watchdog unveils its new report on the patent applications for digital home assistants which reveal unsettling intentions for audio surveillance:
Google is an “Existential Threat to Humanity”
WikiLeaks founder, Julian Assange, stated last year that Google and Facebook have become an “existential threat to humanity”.
According to Dr. Joseph Mercola, “Google is undoubtedly one of the largest and clearest monopolies in the world.”
Recently, Google has partnered with the Chinese government in an effort to create a state-controlled search engine that crushes human freedom.
The Chinese government has recently come under scrutiny for its dictatorial ‘Social Credit System’, which tracks and rates how obedient the Chinese people are based on their social behavior, political views, shopping lists and even the friends that they have. Over 12 million people have recently been banned from travelling because of their low credit score.
One way China rates its citizens, is by keeping a close eye on them.
Is this dictatorial model going to be implemented worldwide?
Facebook is the social media network where most people like to spend hours every single day. Unfortunately, only some of them understand the grim implications of uploading their pictures onto the platform, or filling out their profiles with personal details.
In an article entitled “Facebook, Twitter and other social media sites are an elaborate CIA spying scheme”, Ethan A. Huff writes:
“Social media portals like Facebook and Twitter are increasingly being exposed as what appear to be bait-and-switch spying networks funded, and potentially even run covertly, by the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) and other government agencies.
Venture capital firm that ensured Facebook’s success linked to CIA front group
When Facebook was first getting off its feet, it turns out, the company received a huge cash injection from a venture capital firm known as Accel Partners. According to reports, Accel’s head, James Breyer, was a former chairman at National Venture Capital Association, where he served on the board with Gilman Louie, the CEO of another venture capital group known as In-Q-Tel.
According to In-Q-Tel’s “Mission” page, the group, which invested nearly $13 million during Facebook’s early days, was first launched in 1999 as a catalyst for keeping the CIA up-to-date with the latest information-gathering technologies.
Not surprisingly, the primary purpose of In-Q-Tel is to “build relationships with technology startups outside the reach of the Intelligence Community,” and partner with private sector groups who are willing to “co-invest in [its] portfolio companies.”
If you connect the dots here, it becomes clear that Breyer’s expertise is in connecting the CIA with private enterprises like Facebook and Twitter that focus on gathering information, whether it be for marketing or some other purpose.”
Facebook Engages in Censorship
Just as Google and its video-sharing website, YouTube, Facebook also engages in censorship.
According to RT News, “some 800 anti-establishment accounts and pages have been yanked from Facebook in a sweeping crackdown the social media giant framed as a fight against spammers.”
Among the hundreds of pages and accounts Facebook and Twitter took down were those both on the political left and right, ranging from [so called] conspiracy theorists and police brutality watchers, to news outlets with non-mainstream angles.
Is Facebook a CIA Database?
In an interview with RT News, Wikileaks’ creator, Julian Assange has made some very worrying observations about Facebook (as well as Google and Yahoo). While reading Assange’s words, please keep in mind that WikiLeaks has a 100% accuracy record:
“Facebook in particular is the most appalling spying machine that has ever been invented. Here we have the world’s most comprehensive database about people, their relationships, their names, their addresses, their locations, their communications with each other, their relatives, all seating in the United States, all accessible to US intelligence.
Facebook, Google, Yahoo, all these major US organizations, have built in interfaces for US intelligence.
Everyone should understand that when they add their friends to Facebook, they are doing free work for United States intelligence agencies, in building this database.”

Facebook’s Facial Recognition Software
Every time you upload a photo to Facebook, you’re not only helping intelligence agencies to expands their photographic records of you, but you’re also helping Facebook perfect their facial recognition software.
Enter the ’10 year challenge’…
“Imagine that you wanted to train a facial recognition algorithm on age-related characteristics and, more specifically, on age progression (e.g., how people are likely to look as they get older). Ideally, you’d want a broad and rigorous dataset with lots of people’s pictures. It would help if you knew they were taken a fixed number of years apart — say, 10 years,” said Kate O’Neill, a writer for Wired.
And now, let’s discuss the biggest threat of all…
Amazon, Google and Facebook — All Three Heavily Invested Into Artificial Intelligence (A.I.)
In an article titled “AI experts list the real dangers of artificial intelligence”, Dave Gershgorn discusses a 100-page report written by artificial intelligence experts from industry and academia, which has a clear message:
Every AI advance by the good guys is an advance for the bad guys, too.
The paper, titled “The Malicious Use of Artificial Intelligence: Forecasting, Prevention, and Mitigation,” calls this the “dual-use” attribute of AI, meaning the technology’s ability to make thousands of complex decisions every second could be used to both help or harm people, depending on the person designing the system.
Technology reporter for The Washington Post, Peter Holley, wrote an article back in 2015 detailing the concerns of some of the biggest names in tech regarding AI:
Elon Musk, for example, stated that AI is “our biggest existential threat”. He was quoted saying:
“I think we should be very careful about artificial intelligence. If I were to guess like what our biggest existential threat is, it’s probably that. So we need to be very careful with the artificial intelligence.”
British inventor Clive Sinclair has said he thinks artificial intelligence will doom mankind.
“Once you start to make machines that are rivaling and surpassing humans with intelligence, it’s going to be very difficult for us to survive,” he told the BBC. “It’s just an inevitability.”
Bill Gates also agrees.
“I am in the camp that is concerned about super intelligence,” Gates wrote.
“First the machines will do a lot of jobs for us and not be super intelligent. That should be positive if we manage it well. A few decades after that though the intelligence is strong enough to be a concern. I agree with Elon Musk and some others on this and don’t understand why some people are not concerned.”
Last year, Elon Musk has doubled down on his warnings:
“The biggest issue I see with so-called AI experts is that they think they know more than they do, and they think they are smarter than they actually are,” said Musk.
“This tends to plague smart people. They define themselves by their intelligence and they don’t like the idea that a machine could be way smarter than them, so they discount the idea — which is fundamentally flawed.”
“I am really quite close, I am very close, to the cutting edge in AI and it scares the hell out of me,” said Musk. “It’s capable of vastly more than almost anyone knows and the rate of improvement is exponential.”
Musk is so worried about AI, that he even proposed that the development of artificial intelligence should be regulated, even though he admits he’s not “normally an advocate of regulation and oversight.”
“Mark my words, AI is far more dangerous than nukes. Far. So why do we have no regulatory oversight? This is insane,” Elon Musk stated.
In an article entitled “How Google Aims To Dominate Artificial Intelligence,” Dave Gershgorn writes:
“Internally, Google has spent the last three years building a massive platform for artificial intelligence and now they’re unleashing it on the world. Although, Google would prefer you call it machine intelligence. They feel that the word artificial intelligence carries too many connotations….”
Facebook’s artificial intelligence robots shut down after they start talking to each other in their own language:
The above are just some of the facts that make Amazon, Google and Facebook some of the most evil and dangerous companies in the world.
You’ve probably noticed that the three giants have a lot of negative traits in common, such as working on facial recognition technology, which can (and probably is) being used for surveillance (i.e. spying) purposes; all three companies have strong connections with the US intelligence agencies, as explained by Julian Assange.
But the most worrying part is that all three companies are investing heavily in Artificial Intelligence, even though some of the brightest tech minds have issued warnings about the dangers presented by unregulated AI.
“Mark my words, AI is far more dangerous than nukes.” — Elon Musk
