• The CIA’s investment capital firm In-Q-Tel funds the start-up for innovative tech companies.
• In-Q-Tel is funded through the government’s secret $50B+ “black budget” slush fund.
• Are we relieved or worried that the CIA has all of this advanced technology spyware?

The CIA has its own investment capital firm called “In-Q-Tel,” and it’s been funding innovative tech firms for years. This is both good news and bad. One the one hand, it allows the CIA to invest in technologies they deem useful for the intelligence community; however, some of these technologies are a little creepy when it comes to personal space and privacy.

In-Q-Tel has the ability to reach deep into the pockets of the U.S. government’s Black Budget, which is pretty hefty given that the Washington Post reported that a staggering $52.6 billion was set aside for Black Budget operations in fiscal year 2013. If you’re unfamiliar with the Black Budget program, that’s not very surprising; the entire point of the program is to keep these funds and the programs within it top secret.

Though these investments are much smaller than the total Black Budget spendings, amounting from somewhere between $500K and $2 million per investment as per a 2005 story in Washington Post, they’re still strategic contributions made in hopes of using the technology in the future.

Here’s a list of 14 firms the CIA has funded:

1. Cylance (malware detection)
2. Orbital (intricate searches of satellite images)
3. Cyphy (spy drones)
4. BlueLine Grid (highly secure communications platform)
5. Atlas Wearables (fitness trackers)
6. Fuel3d (handheld 3-D scanning devices)
7. MindMeld (applies voice command to any device or appliance)
8. SnapDNA (analyzes DNA in minutes, no lab)
9. Sonitus (communications device inside the mouth)
10. Palantir (interconnects tons of data from the CIA, NSA, and other intelligence agencies)
11. BBN Technologies (supplied the military with high-tech gadgets since 1948)
12. Keyhole (extremely advanced 3D mapping, they invented Google Earth)
13. Basis Technology (analyzes and translates foreign documents)
14. Oculis Labs (computer screens that only respond to a certain user)

• A newly declassified memo reveals that a CIA informant reported that Hitler was alive in 1955.
• Rumors of Hitler’s survival and relocation to South America after WWII have been widespread and persistent.
• Ignoring the report, the mainstream media deems the CIA memo disinformation concocted by the Russians to erode the American public’s trust in their government.
• In some circles it is suspected that the core of the Nazi Reich relocated to hideaways and bases in South America and Antarctica at the war’s end, and developed a space program known as the “Dark Fleet” which still thrives today in alliance with a Reptilian space fleet.

Allegations and conspiracy theories that Adolf Hitler might have actually survived are nothing new. It’s often claimed that Hitler escaped and that the Allies created the story of his death in order to fabricate a tidy ending to World War II. That story is once again circulating the internet, this time thanks to an alleged CIA memo which reveals a confidential informant reported knowing the whereabouts of Hitler in 1955.

Alleged CIA Memorandum from 1955

The memo was sent from the CIA station chief in Venezuela to the CIA’s Western Hemisphere Division (WHD) chief. In the supposed CIA document, the station chief reports that one of their informants indicated that he/she had regular contact with Hitler in South America:

During the latter part of September 1955, a Phillip CITROEN, a German SS trooper, stated to him confidentially that Adolph HITLER is still alive. CITROEN claimed to have contacted HITLER about once a month in Colombia on his trip from Maracaibo to that country as an employee of the KNSM (Royal Dutch) Shipping Co. in Maracaibo. CITROEN indicated to CIMELODY-3’s friend that he took a picture with HITLER not too long ago, but did’ not show the photograph. He also stated that HITLER left Colombia for Argentina around January 1955.

As far as the document’s authenticity, who knows. While the memo does indeed to be hosted on the CIA’s Reading Room website where declassified documents and files can be read by the public, realistic-looking documents are easily created or manipulated in the age of Photoshop. Such is the dilemma in the Post-Truth era.

Alleged photo of Hitler in 1955

Me, I’m chalking this one up to agitprop. Especially when the memo itself calls this a “fantastic story.” I think the real story here is why a few Russian and pro-Russian news outlets are suddenly rehashing this old conspiracy.

• a pair of CIA internal memos from 1984 and 1991, recently exposed by Edward Snowden, show how the agency planned and implemented a heightened infiltration of academia, the press, and the entertainment media
• in 1984, CIA heads viewed the press as villains who had been corrupted by their “absolute power”, and regarded them as a hostile intelligence service
• in response, the CIA pursued centralized control of the press, to deceive and push their own agenda
• by 1991, the CIA had developed relationships with reporters from every major wire service, newspaper, news weekly, and television network in the nation, often persuading them to postpone, change, hold or even scrap news stories
• the CIA uses the vast entertainment industry as a distraction
• the U.S. government annually classifies an estimated half a billion documents
• this is an example of how the intelligence community and the Deep State manipulate virtually every segment of society in order to hide government projects such as the Secret Space Program from the people

In this case, it’s the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA), and the document in question, written up in 1984, shows how the agency had definite plans to infiltrate academia and change/influence the curriculum, specifically journalism.

As Emma Best from Muckrock reports, recently Tweeted by NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden, memos from the CIA Inspector General’s (IG) office reveal the agencies perspective on the press and how to handle them. It’s from 1984, approximately three decades prior to when the Agency declared Wikileaks a hostile non-state intelligence service. It shows how the CIA viewed the media the same way.

Are organizations like Wikileaks really a threat to National Security? Or are they simply a threat to a small group of powerful people who make millions, billions, or even trillions of dollars via government secrecy? Are they a threat to the global national security agenda that is taking place, disguised under the guise of globalisation? Was president Vladimir Putin right when he said “imaginary” and “mythical” threats are being used to impose the Deep State’s way on the entire world? Perhaps truth and transparency are a threat yes, but not to national security. If we continue to ignore these questions, the national security state will continue to be heightened, one in which our rights are constantly violated, with our right to privacy being one of many great examples.
