Obama's Bat Cave: $1.9 Billion Data Center Set to Open In October
Breitbart's Big Government ^ | June 8, 2013 | John Nolte

There is no question that the big winners from last week were George W. Bush and Dick Cheney, two men vilified for years by the left, the media, and Barack Obama as eager to use the War on Terror as an excuse to violate the Constitutional rights of everyday Americans. Obama ran for president as the anti-Bush in many respects, but especially on the issue of surveillance and snooping.

No, seriously, nobody is listening to your phone calls. I've just got a very large iTunes collection and needed a little backup.

It is said that some recent technical advance has made it so that the total storage capacity inside this ONE SITE is more than the memory of rest of all of the outside world COMBINED.

And I heard when construction is complete the whole facility will be larger than all of Wash DC.

I am all for protecting the President at all costs, but this is a bit much. Let me give you my reason. It is too far from Washington DC. Wouldn’t a huge bunker in West Virginia be safer for the President? I don’t see why they chose Utah.

Here is a top/down view of their facility outside Lackland AFB, a former Sony computer chip manuf facility. It is said that over 4,000 NSA personnel work here in San Antonio:

I think it would be very, very interesting to poll members of congress right now with the simple question:

“Because of the pervasive and unconstitutional spying being conducted by the government against the American people, should this facility be shut down?”

Just imagine the tap dancing, hemming and hawing, evasion and other b.s., as they try to evade answering.

Odd that they’d put the cooling equipment on top of the buildings in such a vulnerable place. Relatively light ammo or high-speed fragments would trash those coils and lead to rapid overheating of the servers they protect. With drone technology expanding faster than government can control, these look to be glaring design errors.

The data facility has been in the works for years. Prior to the Obama admin. The Bush admin laid down the blueprint for the surveillance state for Obama to use. That is the game plan. Implement it while your ‘team’ is in charge, so when they switch sides it will be too late.

Bing has more recent imagery, at least for the straight-down "satellite" view. But the structures vanish when you select the oblique, "Bird's eye" view.

Excellent movie memory there. I not only enjoyed the movie, but read the 3-book trilogy. The books were excellent except for some of the sado-masochistic content.

The police state started decades ago. Thanks to computers, it is a different ball game now. Much easier to spy on people today. FDR till now - we have had a long history of government overreach and tyranny. The Presidents might smile and have pretty First Ladies, but they are still trampling on our liberties. All of the them from my lifetime. War on Drugs, Civil Rights, War on Porn, WOT, Cold War, Hot Wars, IRS, EPA, DEA - Every President since I was born have helped bring this about. Every one.

Those are cooling towers to the cool the water that flows through the water-cooled condensers inside the building.

Most likely for A/C condensers from the environmental control systems but could be for other systems that require cooling water.

Utah has a small population and it can now have tens if thousands of liberals moving in thus taking over a district and soon the state

WHERE in Utah Valley? I’m trying to place it, but can’t get farther than probably around Elk Ridge, or maybe on the way to Thistle, which is not in Utah County.

I spent my childhood in that Valley. Last time I was there, the Valley was pretty full, with towns butting up against each other.

The liberals will have a hard time taking over Utah. The state is uber-conservative, and everyone has at least a handgun, rifle AND shotgun, plue food storage and survival skills.

Liberals would be wise not to upset the locals at their morning cocoa.
