Did Any of You Bloggers Ever Wonder Why You Were Getting So Many Hits From Google HQ...?

Why all the monitoring when you're a good boy/girl, 
following TOS... and a 'good earner' for them via AdSense?

Well, here's your answer: likely it wasn't Google at all, rather highly-politicized NSA snoops, hiding in the grass like the venomous snakes they are:

...the US National Security Agency had apparently impersonated Google on at least one occasion to gather data on people....

Brazilian site Fantastico obtained and published a document leaked by Edward Snowden, which diagrams how a "man in the middle attack" involving Google was apparently carried out.

A technique commonly used by hackers, a MITM attack involves using a fake security certificate to pose as a legitimate Web service, bypass browser security settings, and then intercept data that an unsuspecting person is sending to that service. Hackers could, for example, pose as a banking Web site and steal passwords.

The article by Brazil's Fantastico mentions a hitherto unknown GCHQ spy program called "Flying Pig." This prompted a Twitter quip from Electronic Frontier Foundation attorney Kurt Opsahl: "PRISM, Flying Pig. Someone in the surveillance state has a thing for Pink Floyd album covers."

The technique is particularly sly because the hackers then use the password to log in to the real banking site and then serve as a "man in the middle," receiving requests from the banking customer, passing them on to the bank site, and then returning requested info to the customer -- all the while collecting data for themselves, with neither the customer nor the bank realizing what's happening. Such attacks can be used against e-mail providers too...

Just more 100%-illegal-spying on innocent American citizens by the repulsive Obammunist regime... I've long ago had enough of it, what with DHS openly monitoring as well.

Nothing better to do than spy on bloggers who post disrespectful cartoons about Moochell's rear end, feds?  Just because you get away with it under this president doesn't mean you won't have to answer some questions -or worse- when President Cruz takes over...
