Buzzfeed: Trump Obsessed With Surveillance

March 19, 2017

Considering Trump has been yammering on about being “wiretapped” by the Obama administration, and our previous article about the possibility that the British GCHQ spy agency may have been used to do it (http://www.covertbookreport.com/yes-the-nsa-and-gchq-share-wiretaps/), this article from Buzzfeed has added gravity:

Why Is Donald Trump So Obsessed With Surveillance?

(Excerpts)

“At his private club at Mar-a Lago, as BuzzFeed News revealed last June, Trump listened in on employee phone calls using a special switchboard that was installed in his bedroom and was connected to every phone line in the estate. The Trump Organization employs a “director of surveillance,” Matt Calamari, son of Trump’s longtime bodyguard. Inside Trump’s house near Washington, DC, where guests would sometimes stay, an extensive video surveillance system was monitored by Trump security personnel in New York. A surveillance company said that in public areas of the Trump National Doral resort, it installed video cameras to blend in with the décor by looking like smoke detectors.”…

…”At Trump’s hotel in New York, collecting information about guests was routine, said two former managers there who asked not to be identified, because they had signed strict nondisclosure agreements. Both said the hotel maintained two computer files on guests. “There is a guest preference file,” one said, “and there is a guest incident file.”

…”For at least a dozen of Trump’s properties — including Mar-a-Lago, now known as the winter White House — American Integrated Security Group has installed cameras and servers, the company said. In a marketing brochure, AISG touted its work at the Trump National Doral Resort & Spa. In the first phase alone, the company said, it installed “over 100 cameras”, and another 50 in phase three. The Trump Doral’s security team “likes the low profile cameras that look like smoke detectors,” the brochure states. Some of the cameras, including those used for license-plate recognition, have high resolution, according to the pamphlet, and the servers can save video for 30 days.”…

The article refers to Trump collecting blackmail information on at least one “conservative Senator” and one journalist. So Trump himself is no stranger to “Kompromat”, the Russian term for blackmail evidence.

    Imagine this: Tensions are high between the U.S. and a nuclear-armed rogue nation.
