Israel Is Turning America Into a Giant Gaza Strip Built By Surveillance Capitalism – “Terrorism and Fear Are Good For Business”

Ed.’s note: What the RT News article that sott.net republished on their website didn’t mention was that this CyberDome system was developed in Israel. So there are “spooks” behind this surveillance, but Israeli spooks you can be sure. We’ve already along with others, reported on NewsGuard mentioned in the RT News article below. Links to material on NewsGuard may be required to refresh memories. CyberDome’s “Next-Generation Managed Security Service” is located in Abuja, Nigeria with branches in Israel and in the US. Although developed in Israel, the “US” tacked onto the beginning of CyberDome reassures Americans we guess it’s a US operation. With their “terrorism is good for business” model, everyone becomes a “terrorist” in their surveillance cybersecurity systems that are being built. “Israel has struck oil” as we are being placed in a constant state of perpetual fear as we continue to kill each other.

President Trump announced last year that Samantha Ravich, referred to as a “technology entrepreneur,” would take over a “senior intelligence post” in his administration. Samantha Ravich is a senior adviser to Michael Chertoff’s the Chertoff Group. Ravich has been in the administration of several presidencies including as former Deputy National Security Advisor for Vice President Richard Cheney. Ravich is a member of several think tanks including the RAND Corp and is a hawkish pro-Israeli who specializes in “combating extremists.” What can we learn from our continuing knowledge about the Mega Group?

With that background consider the “white extremist” who shows up at a Walmart in El Paso, Texas and shoots (witnesses describe four shooters in black doing the shooting) the place up. That’s a pretty good example of using “extremism” to build out further the surveillance state. That would be anyone critical of Israel including the US Department of Hebrew Security setting up contractual relationships with Israel facilitated by Michael Chertoff. Prepare yourselves because more “white extremism” attacks are being planned. Israeli operatives doing the shooting in El Paso?

Americans Should Be Very Skeptical Of Calls For New “Terrorism” Laws

The dual US-Israeli citizen Michael Chertoff served as Secretary of the U.S. Department of Hebrew Security from 2005 until 2009. At the time, Chertoff was the head of a 218,000 person department with a budget of $50 billion to “develop and implement border security and immigration policy, promulgate homeland security regulation, and spearhead a national cyber security strategy.” With $50 billion in its budget and 218,000 employees and years later, the borders of the US are still not secured and there is increased surveillance being conducted on Americans. Sort of demonstrates who is really responsible for running America’s borders and immigration policy doesn’t it? Israel. The details of Michael Chertoff’s personal history should have disqualified him from holding a position in the US government, instead, his meteoric rise within the US government and nomination for the head job at DHS was approved without a single objection in the US Senate.

Spooks Behind Surveillance, Torture, & Drone Attacks Launch ‘Cyberdome’ to Protect US Elections From Russian Meddling

Protest against NSA spying

A group of former intelligence agency directors and other trustworthy cybersecurity pros has launched a charitable initiative to protect US elections against foreign interference. So who are these noble guardians of democracy?

The “US Cyberdome” claims to apply top-of-the-line cybersecurity capabilities to the country’s vulnerable election systems, motivated by nothing more than a selfless devotion to protecting democracy against “sophisticated attacks by constant and ever-evolving threats.” Stuffed with sinister ex-spooks like former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper and former Homeland Security Secretary Michael Chertoff, Cyberdome will keep America’s democracy safe from “purposeful attacks and exploits” and even “undue influence from enemies both foreign and domestic” – at no cost!

One might be forgiven for looking this particular gift horse in the mouth. Clapper, after all, stood in front of Congress and denied under oath that the NSA was collecting data on US citizens, an apparent act of perjury he attributed first to forgetting about the Patriot Act section used to authorize the agency’s StellarWind surveillance program and later to simple misspeaking. He has also claimed Russians are “genetically driven to co-opt, penetrate, gain favor” – not exactly the kind of impartial authority one wants guarding one’s democracy. And Chertoff, a member of the infamous Atlantic Council, co-wrote both the Patriot Act and the CIA interrogation memo advising agents on the judicious use of waterboarding.

Other members of Cyberdome’s board of advisors include former Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson, who oversaw Obama’s targeted drone assassination program and approved the killing of US citizens like Anwar al-Awlaki without due process; and former CIA director Michael Morell, another Atlantic Council member who was responsible for reviewing the “intelligence” that went into then-Secretary of State Colin Powell’s infamous United Nations speech in which he claimed Iraq had weapons of mass destruction. A less trustworthy bunch has not been assembled on an advisory board since the Orwellian browser plugin NewsGuard was unveiled.

It’s not like Cyberdome’s tech isn’t expensive – the group was founded by Matt Barrett, who led the development of the National Institute of Standards and Technology’s “Cybersecurity Framework,” a best-practices security infrastructure program that came with a price tag so hefty half the organizations that reviewed it cited cost as the primary barrier to adoption. Cyberdome accepts donations (inviting donors to “Put Your Money Where Your Democracy Is!”), but securing the nation’s voting systems to NIST standards isn’t cheap.

This, it seems, is where the advisory board comes in – with such a pedigreed array of spooks on hand, elections that don’t adopt Barrett’s vision of cybersecurity could easily experience a breach or two. Top-brass spies like Cyberdome’s board know how to spoof traffic from foreign “hackers” – a capability WikiLeaks revealed the CIA possesses in the Vault7 leaks. If they want to knock off an inconvenient presidential candidate, all they need to do is spoof a hack into the voting system from whoever the bogeyman du jour is, and voila – instant Manchurian (or Siberian) candidate.

Former DHS Secretary Michael Chertoff warned when the NIST framework was unveiled in 2014 that unless Congress “really put some muscle behind it” or regulators got involved, it would be difficult to achieve widespread adoption of the “voluntary” program. Chertoff in his post-DHS career has hopped from industry to industry collecting large paychecks to consult on cybersecurity, convincing everyone from bankers to airports that the cyber-barbarians are at the gates, and only he can protect them. And Cyberdome is merely his vision writ large, with the whole election system in its sights.

The company claims its initial efforts are focused “only” on securing the 2020 presidential campaign, but its hope is to ultimately “assist all national political campaigns.” As Johnson said in a statement on Tuesday, “In the face of known, ongoing efforts by foreign powers to try to interfere in our upcoming election, US Cyberdome could not come at a more critical juncture.”

Translation? “Gee, that’s a nice democracy you’ve got there – sure would be a shame if something happened to it.”

The Merchants of Fear: How Israel Profits from Homeland Insecurity

Janury 6, 2010

In the wake of the weird Christmas Day “underwear bomber” incident on Northwest Flight 253, former Homeland Security chief Michael Chertoff, as if on cue, was all over the mainstream media touting whole-body scanners as the answer to America’s airline security problems. Since leaving public office in 2009, Chertoff had co-founded the Chertoff Group, a security and risk-management firm whose clients include a manufacturer of body-imaging screening machines. While some in the media noted this rather commonplace conflict of interest, ignored by all was a far more significant abuse of the American public’s trust.

In a CNN interview, Chertoff cited the Detroit incident as “a very vivid lesson in the value of that machinery.” One lesson that he hasn’t drawn, however, was about the unreliability of the security firm which allowed the young Nigerian Muslim without a passport to “slip through” Amsterdam’s Schiphol Airport.

ICTS International N.V., the Dutch-based security firm, was established in 1982 by former members of Israel’s secret police, the Shin Bet, and El Al security. Menachem Atzmon, who holds the controlling shares in the firm, was convicted in 1996 for campaign finance fraud while co-treasurer of the Likud party. The other co-treasurer Ehud Olmert, who was acquitted of those charges, resigned as Israeli Prime Minister in 2008 amid multiple corruption charges.

Although the rapid worldwide expansion of ICTS was no doubt helped by the much vaunted reputation of Israeli aviation security, its record abroad is less reassuring. In December 2001, the so-called “shoe bomber” Richard Reid also slipped through ICTS security at Paris Charles de Gaulle Airport to board a flight to Miami. And it was an ICTS subsidiary, Huntleigh USA, that shared security duties at Boston’s Logan Airport, where two of the four hijacked planes originated on September 11, 2001.

Interestingly, Michael Chertoff has close family ties to Israeli aviation. His father, an American rabbi, married Livia Eisen, who was an air hostess for El Al in the 1950s. “There are reports that she was involved in Operation Magic Carpet, which brought Jews to Israel from Yemen,” wrote Jonathan Cook in Israel and the Clash of Civilizations. “It therefore seems possible that Livia Eisen was an Israeli national, and one with possible links to the Mossad.”

Somehow, nobody thought of asking Michael Chertoff whether his mother had ties to a foreign country’s intelligence service during the Senate confirmation hearing on his appointment as secretary of Homeland Security in 2005. Most likely taking their cue from Senators Charles Schumer and Joseph Lieberman, who endorsed their fellow Jewish Zionist for the DHS job, the AIPAC-conscious Senate approved Chertoff by a vote of 98-0.

Normally hypersensitive to even the most tenuous links to Islamic terrorism, Sens. Schumer and Lieberman were apparently unconcerned by Chertoff’s 1998 legal representation of Dr. Magdy Elamir. The FBI had filed a report charging Elamir with skimming money from an Islamic charity to support al-Qaeda and financially supporting the al-Salam mosque, which the “Blind Sheikh” Omar Abdel-Rahman used as a base of operations for the 1993 World Trade Center bombing.

Moreover, there are suspicions that Chertoff, as head of the Justice Department’s criminal division, may have been behind the deportation for “immigration violations” of the 200 Israelis arrested in 2001 for “suspicious activities” both before and after 9/11. According to a DEA report, these Israeli “art students” had “recently served in the Israeli military, the majority in intelligence, electronic signal intercept, or explosive ordnance units.” As Antiwar.com editor Justin Raimondo wryly put it in his essential book The Terror Enigma, “the probability that these are graduates of the Mossad School of Art (summa cum laude) is certainly high.”

But then again, how could one possibly doubt the patriotism of the author of the USA PATRIOT Act? Whatever his other qualities, Chertoff must be a fast writer. The 342-page document was signed into law on October 26, 2001 – a mere 45 days after the Sept. 11 attacks.

Striking oil on 9/11

On October 11, 2001, exactly one month after 9/11, Senator Lieberman introduced S. 1534, a bill to establish a Department of Homeland Security. The bipartisan Department of National Homeland Security Act of 2001 was co-sponsored by Republican Senator Arlen Specter, who is, perhaps not coincidentally, also a Jewish Zionist.

The day after 9/11, Benjamin Netanyahu let slip that the deaths of almost 3,000 Americans was “very good” for Israel. In particular, the mass murder was very good for an emerging sector of the Israeli economy. In “Laboratory for a Fortressed World,” Naomi Klein detailed the post-9/11 “explosion of Israel’s homeland security sector.”

“Before 9/11 homeland security barely existed as an industry,” Klein wrote in 2007. “By the end of this year, Israeli exports in the sector will reach $1.2 billion – an increase of 20 percent. The key products and services are high-tech fences, unmanned drones, biometric IDs, video and audio surveillance gear, air passenger profiling and prisoner interrogation systems – precisely the tools and technologies Israel has used to lock in the occupied territories.”

And the Department of Homeland Security, the Lieberman-Specter brainchild then headed by Michael Chertoff, had become one of Israel’s most reliable markets.

“Israel has struck oil,” as Klein so aptly put it. “The oil is the war on terror, the state of constant fear that creates a bottomless global demand for devices that watch, listen, contain and target ‘suspects.'”

In order to exploit that resource to the full, Israel needed the likes of Chertoff, Lieberman, Schumer and Specter to hype the concept of “homeland security” in the United States. Americans, however, should have been asking a couple of pertinent questions. Which homeland? And whose security?
