In the beginning of Charles Krauthammer’s No. one bestseller, “Things that Matter” he makes the point that even though the things that really matter are outside of politics, politics is what influences literally everything:
“While science, medicine, art, poetry, architecture, chess, space, sports, number theory and all things hard and beautiful promise purity, elegance and sometimes even transcendence, they are fundamentally subordinate. In the end, they must bow to the sovereignty of politics. You can have the most advanced and efflorescent of cultures, Get your politics wrong, however, and everything stands to be swept away. This is not ancient history. This is Germany 1933.”
And so, with an American President that is becoming a dictator, we face the same surmise. What’s even worse, is we could face future force from our own President, who is building an army to obey…just him.
He has fired over 100 of our top generals. The new ones WILL disarm us.
Obama is not just a lame President: He is a dangerous man.
Many of you that read me, know that I have been talking about this exponentially expanding Presidency for years now. FDR had it perfected. Bill Clinton armed North Korea AND China. Bush set up Homeland Security…TSA searches became the norm. Everything they do that is against the America people and the Constitution, is sold to the American people as necessary—- protecting us.
The people that are crying out against Obama’s tyranny will be targeted, and punished. Obama has said so himself. The IRS scandal, that our politicians did nothing about, is proof. Our military being trained to spot patriots as the enemies of America (who is Obama) is proof. What more do you need? Obama has abandoned all former allies and now arms the very people who kill us.
Yet, his comrade professors are crying out for another term. Will Obama become the final American President?
Let me tell you what frightens me the most tonight: ‘President’ Obama and his wife, Bill Clinton and Hillary Clinton, and George W. Bush, all got on Air Force One to fly to Africa.
Have you seen any pictures yet? Have you heard ANY reports? Two opposing parties, three Presidents and one future…all on Air Force One…and what could they possibly be talking about?
Tell me…where are all the propaganda pictures? That alone shows secrecy. And that’s not good.
I’ll tell you what they are not talking about: our horrible school system.
Remember hearing then President George W. Bush, laughing when he said, “If this was a dictatorship, we could get more done. As long as I’m the dictator. HEHHE”?
That wasn’t funny….but that’s the corporate executive response.
Presidents don’t even use Congress anymore, and why should Congress care? They don’t even read the bills they pass. Presidents get their laws through the vast unconstitutional apparatuses of ‘departments.’ Obama is always complaining about Congress. He wants Congress…abolished.
Yesterday would be fine by him.
Go to the library, look in the reference books for government offices, and you will see THOUSANDS of them. In fact, half of the population works for the government, and that’s by design. If you have half the people dependent on that government paycheck and pension, the other half won’t be able to get the people that work for the government to stand up to them.
It’s simple—–they like to eat.
That doesn’t leave much of the private sector left to support them AND the 93 million people that are out of work.
Krauthammer is right. Politics can destroy a country. Obama is amalgamation of communism, socialism and fascism—all of which…needs a dictator. And a few men are finally speaking out: FINALLY.
Obama doesn’t care about the law. There is so much proof that he wasn’t even eligible to run, it’s almost a joke. He lets our men die on the battle field. He encourages race riots. He follows the communist playbook for overtaking a government: Create the problem—-Come in with the solution. And because American children don’t even KNOW what communism is, they just don’t recognize it.
That was by design too.
They are taking our wills. Our jobs. Our very lives with denying us doctors.
They are turning the screws. They are leaving us…hopeless.
The official White House pictures that come out of the Mandela funeral kiss-affair will be interesting to see…
So, what can we do? The Presidency can kill anyone without trial: he can ruin their lives with IRS audits: he can suspend ANY law: he can gather dirt on anyone on the planet: he can send them (our soldiers) into dangerous places on HIS orders, without protection, watch them die, and then remain blameless.
Obama actually has the greatest power ever held by one man in human history.
What we will be sure to see..is more staged pictures of Presidents who hold secrets none of us can even imagine…or would want to.
At this point in time, I’m sure even John Adams would agree (If he saw Obama today) that the Presidency should be taken down to just a man who gets his picture taken in the White House and gives diplomatic parties.
Stripped of all power. George Washington never had the power to kill American citizens at a whim. If we can’t impeach the man, call a Constitutional Convention and strip him of the power he is using now to destroy us all.
Our Presidents have become Kings.. and the American people HAVE to stop them…because, in the end, as I am sure Charles would agree—-
The things that matter most won’t matter anymore, if our politics are wrong.
I really loved reading Wayne Allyn Root’s book, “The Ultimate Obama Survival Guide” but I’m beginning to see a pattern everywhere— wherever I turn: It doesn’t matter who I am reading or watching on TV, the guru’s of everyone say the same thing….BUY GOLD! Buy gold, and if you can’t buy gold, buy silver.
Simply because the world market is a big global Ponzi scheme about to collapse. They ALL say it. It’s getting to be that you can’t turn on anything without hearing it: BUY GOLD!
In one of the chapters in Wayne’s book, a master of international finance, Mr. Kip Heritage, suggests that you buy cheap real estate, undervalued stocks and failing businesses,—after you buy a lot of gold. I could afford a dollar lot in Detroit right now…I’ll think about it, Kip.
Glenn Beck, is always talking about his gold. And how everyone should be buying gold. In fact, put your gold out of the country so our government can’t get it.
Better yet, move to Singapore and drop your citizenship if you must. Oh…and buy oil too.
Has anybody bothered to tell any of these guru’s that the majority of Americans make on average, $50,000 a year, and they can’t even afford health care, let alone an ounce of gold? Nobody Knows who in the world these guys are talking to, because it’s sure not the average person. And yet, they keep talking about it as if it’s as affordable as buying a pair of new shoes.
The rich already know this stuff, and they already are doing this, stocking up on gold, so tell me—are they that stupid that they don’t realized that most people’s only asset is their house, and they would have to sell their only asset to invest in the amount of gold these guys are talking about? Do they really want to keep torturing us with the fact that THEY can buy gold, and we can only buy…milk?
What? Where’s the compassion here?
Nobody Knows why they keep preaching to all the people who couldn’t afford to buy gold if they wanted to, but Nobody Thinks the reason they are doing it, is because they themselves are making a LOT of gold just talking about it.
You KNOW I’m right.
This week, the fight is clear: It’s the globalists against the American people. And the globalists include both parties.
Here’s something that I wish someone would point out: Obama, and his democrats are just as involved and working for the Fed and Wall Street as the Republicans, and nobody ever, ever, ever brings this up.
As you see in the above video, the President of Goldman Sachs, Lloyd Blankfein (How’s THAT for a Wall Street name?) basically blames the whole dysfunction of the government on the tea party. No, he doesn’t say tea party, but he accuses them of wanting to default, and destroy the world. So does Christine Legarde of the IMF.
“But we say slow down because the point is not to contract the economy by slashing spending brutally now as recovery is picking up.”
What? It’s only picking up on Wall Street, because since the 2008 crash, the men on Wall Street have tripled their investments, thanks to the poor guy on mainstreet.
Nevertheless….here’s a top Wall Street King, who is fighting on the side of ‘President’ Obama, John McCain, Mitch McConnell, and Harry Reid. They are complaining about the “people’ trying to hold on to whatever power they can. Now, normal, family-loving, country-loving, conservative people are considered radicals by the globalists. We…are the enemy.
One thing that is good coming out of all of this fight in Washington is now we are seeing very clearly, who the American people’s enemies actually are, and they are many.
To me, it’s much simpler: There are the globalists, who are basically fascists and could care less about the American people, and then there are the politicians who really care about America.
That’s why they hate Ted Cruz. Basically, with the help of only a few people, he has singlehandedly brought the American people back to the table of Congress…and Congress doesn’t like it one bit.
Boehner is in a hard place. If he gives into Obama, the Republican party is gone. The reason John McCain and Romney lost is because they weren’t Conservatives. If they run Jeb Bush, he will lose. There are simply not enough ‘independents’ to vote them in.
People will be hurting so badly with Obamacare they will blame the Republicans for not getting rid of it….so, he has to depend on the Senate to do all the dealing, and that’s Mitch.
Fareed Zakaria’s essay today was all about how Obama missed the all important meeting in Asia all because of the tea party people, and therefore China got all the big money deals. All I’ve heard from the CEO’s on TV and all the democratic pundits for decades is, ‘Why oh why can’t we be like China?”
Frankly, I wish every S-n of a &$^$& I’ve heard say that, would get off my TV and go live there.
Nobody Thinks—our big multinational companies which own our Congress…want Obamacare, and they want a strong leader at the top, who they can control, so they can compete with China. Congress is just messing up their day. It’s time consuming, and they have to WAIT whenever they have a request.
Who does Obama work for? He works for men like Lloyd Blankfein, and George Soros. And so did George W. Bush. And yet, every Wall Street Occupy gooney thinks all of Wall Street works for Republicans.
We did not need to bail out Wall Street. Even the liberal Vanity Fair admits huge crimes were committed by the bankers. Those people should lhave spent years in jail…where they could have gotten along very well with two other criminals who helped set that whole housing bubble up: Barney Frank and Bill Clinton. The stimulus money was stolen from the American people.
There is no money in Social Security now…just IOU’s. When the fines start rolling in from Obamacare, you can bet, all that money will be used for some other reason.
Why should anything be different? They just want more money. And as Margaret Thatcher once said, “The trouble with socialism is, sooner or later you run out of other people’s money.”
And that’s what happened in Poland. Just recently, Poland went into their own people’s pension accounts and stole half of their people’s retirement money. Obama has his eye on that option. And maybe this whole debt ceiling thing would give him just enough chaos for him to pull it off.
China, is already chopping at the bit, not because of the tea party, but because Obama is President. China said this at their Asian summit.
“As US politicians of both political parties are still shuffling back and forth between the White House and the Capitol Hill without striking a viable deal to bring normality to the body politic they brag about, it is perhaps a good time for the befuddled world to start considering building a de-Americanised world,”
I watched this video last night, and wondered, why we have never heard about some of these events? It’s being reported that not only are our children inferior compared to the rest of the word in math, so are our adults. Nobody Wonders if this absence of math and financial education in our schools is by mandate. The bankers that run the world, do not want the general public to be too smart in these things—–This keeps the rich at the very top, in continuing their greedy interests in secret.
We’ve all heard Ron Paul talk about the Federal Reserve: This video takes you through the banking history of the United States, and explains why the Federal Reserve it at the core of our problems.
While I believe there is more to the wars in the world than just simply greed, after I watched this film, I have to admit, that the first stimulus money…given out by then President George W. Bush in his last days in office—- went to the overseas banking cartels. So by that measure, I take this video seriously.
Having said that, you will be surprised to learn, just how simple it would be to put the United States back on track….
If you can find the time…this is a very interesting, and I’d love to hear from anyone who can point out other ideas from it.
In case you haven’t heard the news, you only have thirty more years on the planet. Excited? According to Sir Bob Geldoff…the clock is ticking.
First, you have to wonder WHY the Queen made a lord out of Bob Goofoff…er Sir Geldolf. By the likes of his hair, he only gets out of bed to proclaim the world is ending, so that he can throw a big party to raise millions, and then pocket his next ticket to whatever paradise he happens to sleep in. He says that all the people of the world will die by 2030. Known for his “LIVE AID’ concert, to fight famine in Africa in 1985…Bob has come out of his gerbil hole to speak again:
The former Boomtown Rats singer also warned “the next war will not be a World War One or a World War Two, it will be the end.” He added: “We may not get to 2030. We need to address the problem of climate change urgently.”
It’s time to ratchet up the global warming takeover….because soon, they will not be able to claim the earth is warming, and Bob will have to invent another problem, like BIG RATS taking over the earth. After all, x-musicians with no talent have to do something to make a living. Besides, the poor man is just not getting any sleep over the upcoming destruction of us all. Who WILL do his hair? All the hairdressers will be dead from heat stroke. Clearly, Bob didn’t mention this fact, but its obvious it’s on his list of worries:
The extraordinary “reverse” of global warming has led to a 60 per cent rise in ice-covered ocean. Just six years ago, some scientists were predicting that all of this ice would have melted away by 2013.
What would REALLY impress us, is if some body would give a concert to end the corruption in tyrannical governments. Now that would be worth a lordship!
We need to WRITE that Queen. Clearly, she is not paying attention to her Queenly duties.
But It seems there is good news…finally. Despite the years of chicken little Al Gore and his various university puppets screaming for us all to go back into the dark ages, with our candles and walking sticks, there is now evidence that the Antarctic is actually getting colder;
The news appears in the latest SciencExpress, and it shows that the vast majority of the Antarctic landmass is rapidly gaining ice and snow cover. Obviously this moisture comes from the sea. And, being deposited in solid form on the land-way-down-under, this lowers the earth’s sea level. For instance, most of Antarctica has actually been cooling for the past couple of decades (see here for more details). And now comes word that the snow and ice cover over large portions of Antarctica has been increasing, leading to a drawdown of global sea level.
This means Florida will NOT disappear anytime soon, sorry Al. (I have a few lots to sell…any takers?)
WASHINGTON — Wind energy facilities have killed at least 67 golden and bald eagles in the last five years, but the figure could be much higher, according to a new scientific study by government biologists. cluster of wind farms in a northern California area known as Altamont Pass. Wind farms built there decades ago kill more than 60 per year.
The eagle was almost extinct back in the 70′s—-but due to some very talented and dedicated nature lovers they were bought BACK from the brink…only to face extinction again by the same people who ironically used pictures of Polar Bears stranded on Ice to promote global warmng so that Al Gore and his friends go set up a really nifty way to collect MORE money, by promoting Wind Energy. And it’s not just the Eagles that are getting cut up. Thousands of other birds being smashed by Windmills, on daily basis.
Nobody Wins when political hacks use faulty science to back their claims that mankind is causing the seas to rise, just so they can collect more taxes.
And Nobody Wins, when they refuse to tell the world that what actually might be coming…is another ice age, which is MUCH worse. The Polar Bears are going to be fine. The rest of us…well…..let’s just say we will long for the day when we could actually get OUT of our driveways.
But…if you live in Arizona…I’m pretty sure you’re safe. Seattle? Not so much. I suggest you start moving now.
Didn’t Obama look really sincere in his speech about Syria tonight? The outstretched hand, that kept annoyingly clipping the podium—the practiced control, the wide- eye appeal to the world about “the children”, and the unbelievable diatribe about how chemical weapons will lead to nuclear weapons and we all will die sooner rather than later if Obama doesn’t strike . If we just let him put a few missiles in, Assad will give up.
And good news! We aren’t going to war. Dropping bombs is now considered in America…just a deterrent! It’s not war…it’s just a…like a traffic warning. Presidents can DO that, because that’s not war! See?
I’m not sure what stopped Obama, from attacking Assad at will before this—-but for once in his career…he had to stop and think. The people of the western world stood up to their leaders and said, ”We’ve about had it with your wars.” If he did it alone, it would have been considered not only an impeachable act, but an international war crime. The elites of the world are getting paranoid.
You can only buy so many tickets to the dance.
When Obama didn’t get Britain’s backing, it was another Presidential ‘first.’ The people were not shocked by it, but I bet the diners in D.C. were filled with a lot of drunk politicians that night.
I think it was because he was black. (Just kidding, wanted to see if you were paying attention.)
When Obama’s only backers were the top Republicans in the Senate, that didn’t look good either for all his friends in Hollywood.
And then the news…the people of the United States said that they were against this war 100 to 1. Democrats AND Republicans AND Independents united in their protest.
All the lies and bloviating of Obama has come home to hit him in the face…he is the little boy who cried ‘wolf’ too many times. Nobody believes him anymore.
In the last few days, John Kerry, who is running for President in 2016, (go on…tell me he isn’t going to run against Hillary for the job) just couldn’t help spewing out ridiculous platitudes just to hear his own voice. And then, he messed up by making some Caesar like demand, and Putin came in on him like a gator on a zebra.
A Russian dictator makes an American President and his “wannabe” presidential Secretary of State: look like the dumbest kids on the block. Kerry insists that Assad give over the WMD’s and then Putin says, HEY, I agree, and gets Syria to do it! But then, you guys can’t attack us.
So there. I call your bluff. I win. And yes, he did.
But, back to the great speech in the FIRST part of his speech tonight, he went back to his original message: Assad needs to go, and he is going to do it…uh…right after this important message. The SECOND half of the speech was all about why he wasn’t going to do it.
And how he canceled the vote in the Senate because basically, he was told to. Some of those guys want to get reelected. But HE said it was because he wanted to see what Kerry did in Russia. (Kerry will drink Vodka, and then say a few stupid things, then come home.)
The Rhino’s and the Neo-Cons democrats, who are desperate to continue the fighting for the Saudi’s and Qatar. in the meantime are trying desperately to help Obama start his war.
Bill O’Reilly even compared the Syrian event to Hitler. America did not want to go to war then either, he said. What he didn’t say was that Pearl Harbor got us there. We had our Pearl Harbor on 9/11. And guess what? Ike is no longer on the planet.
If you believe in conspiracy’s, FDR helped instigate Pearl Harbor that got us into the war, because there was NO way the American people wanted to watch their sons and daughters die after WWI. Did he do that? Nobody Knows.
What we do know is that this Syrian War stuff is really about an oil pipeline and Sunni control of the Middle East. . Assad had given the rights to an oil and gas pipeline to run through to Europe to Russia, NOT Qatar.
Russian wants it’s ports, it’s gasoline line to Europe. Therefore, it’s the US and Saudi Arabia, VS Russia and Iran. Peachy.
Sadly, Richard Clarke may have been right. The plan has been, ever since Daddy Bush, to get involved in the Middle East, to ‘work’ for the Saudi Kings (Who now offer to pay our soldiers to take out Assad, heaven forbid they send THEIR sons.) Obama is just carrying out the plan.
The American people are finally saying, ”What are WE going to get out of this?” And what ARE we going to get out of this? Somebody is getting something and it’s not us. I say follow the money all the way to the Presidential libraries built with Saudi money.
Obama says, no one will ever use gas on our soldiers ever again and Iran will not develop nukes if we strike.
Right. And if I cut the tree down in my neighbors yard, he is never going to plant another one.
O’Reilly interviewed Lou Grant tonight on his TV station, and Lou Grant, (and yes he is a socialist and yes I don’t really care for him) did a Putin. Bill asked him how could he witness little children in the world being gassed and killed, and Lou said “I don’t want to see any more children in Arlington.”
All of America saw it, and all of America said: Ditto that Lou.
I hate to say it, but Tomorrow is 9/11. Nobody Knows if America is attacked anywhere in the world, will Obama finally have his permission to get into the war in the Middle East.?
Nobody Knows, if tonight, some American politicians are lying in their beds tonight hoping..for just a small strategic strike……that’s all they’d need.
Nobody Knows just why Obama and the Rino’s are crying out for war with Syria. Everybody that I read is pretty much guessing that it’s all to save Obama from his own big mouth. But Nobody Thinks we should ask the very old but very sensible question: Who benefits? It’s blatantly obvious that the United States citizens, would be hurt. We don’t have the money or the will to fight another senseless war in the Middle East—-but how about our elites?
Nobody Knows and wonders—-what and IF some of our entranced Senators and Presidents get some personal money out of this from…big corporations, or even worse…other countries?
Nobody Knows…how influential big corporations and Saudi money are in calling the shots in Washington D.C. It seems, every politician in Washington is controlled and by big wads of money. P.J. O’Rourke was right when he said we have a Parliament of Whores. Nobody Wonders if we can also add a recent gaggle of Presidential Whores to that great title.
Let’s go back to the first gulf war. Daddy Bush told us we were going over there to protect a defenseless country named Kuwait, and Saddam was a bad guy. Remember, we backed that ‘bad’ guy with chemical weapons, military hardware, and millions of dollars to help those poor tribal lords in Iraq fight Iran. We did the very same thing with bin Laden, in Afghanistan, to help him fight Russia
How did that turn out for us?
Daddy Bush gave our military support to those adorable Sunni sheiks in Saudi Arabia in order to protect them, and their family, and their oil with the FIRST Gulf war. Bush the elder put on a real patriotic display for…making himself look good and protecting the Sheiks. The propaganda was so good…we didn’t mind much, because we still had money.
Then we had Clinton protecting the Muslims in Kosovo in THAT civil war. Remember, there was another ‘bad’ guy…Milosevic. Nobody Knows how necessary that was. Clinton kept away from bin Laden, refused the man nine times, because bin Laden had relatives in the Saudi family. He literally ignored the bombing of the Cole, (We will FIND the criminals who did this!) and the first bombing of the World Trade Center, which was done by the Muslim Brotherhood. Clinton airlifted Bosnian refugees over here because he felt sorry for them. He dropped 80,000 into St. Louis.
After 9.11, Bush Jr. protected the Saudi’s kids and sent out planes to pick up their families here, while everybody else was grounded. Even though almost ALL of the hijackers came from Saudi Arabia, Bush blamed one lone man. bin Laden, and he kept inviting those old Sheiks down to his Texas ranch, where he could give them big kisses.
Obama just has the thugs into the White House.
Who here believes that George W. Bush didn’t know where bin Laden was for ten years…raise your hands.
(Okay. You there. Go back to your granola.)
Obama continued the Saudi King worship with low bows.
Are you starting to see a pattern here? Jeb Bush is about to give Hillary Clinton, the butcher enabler of Benghazi, a metal of honor. Hillary has a Muslim Brotherhood woman as her assistant and she is now the right hand man of Obama.
Tell me, when will the American people get some attention from their Presidents?
All these years, our Presidents have been protecting the Saudi’s family…and we are still doing it. Iran is their biggest enemy. How nice it would be for them if we took out Syria, and then Iran?
You could say that our Presidents are doing this to keep us in oil, but we can easily get oil from other places, including our own country, and yet, we NEVER do. Our Congress AND President make damn sure we stay forever dependent on the Saudi oil.
Nobody knows, if the reason that rich people want the Presidency so badly is that the top politicians have their own very secret, and very lucrative contracts with Saudi Arabia? After all, the Saudi’s and the Muslim Brotherhood are both Wahhabi. It would explain why we have a Muslim sympathize in the White House. The Saudi’s could have told the Rhino’s at the top, that they wanted a Muslim someday, in the Presidency. John McCain could have been in on that deal. After all, he ran to lose, it was almost too obvious.
Are our Presidents and some of our Senators on the payrolls of Saudi Kings?
Because Nobody Knows how John McCain, a decorated war veteran, could say this:
The bloodcurdling cry of “Allahu akbar” is a war cry, and is meant to “strike terror in the hearts of the unbelievers.” You can’t tell me John McCain doesn’t know that.
Nobody Knows if the Boston Mayor Menino who said when a reporter asked him what he’d do with Detroit “I’d blow up the place and start all over.” if John McCain would think it was okay if the Mayor said “Thank GOD!” after he did it? (And wasn’t THAT a racist statement?)
Nobody Knows why the democrats, Hillary Clinton and Al Gore helped get the network Al-Jazeera broadcasted into American homes, while in Egypt, the Muslims’ Brotherhood network has been banned. Al Gore made millions, but what did Hillary get?
Nobody knows why now, Ft. Hood was treated as a work place accident. Nobody Knows why American Tea Party is higher on the FBI list as terrorist than al-Qaeda.
Are our Presidents getting paid in secret by the Saudi’s to keep us at war? After all, a few top men making billions from secret payouts from foreign countries would be very hard to prove, and very easy to hide. Look how long they hid everything else? (NSA( We still don’t know who killed JFK, and never will. Did FDR make a deal that American Presidents would forever more protect the Saudi Family as long as a few key people at the top of our government got big payouts? Could the Saudi Kings have insisted that payout as long as America was kept dependent on their oil?
Nobody knows, but it would sure explain the absolute absurdity of the last four President and their actions. And when you look all around you, it’s the ONLY answer that explains it all.
If you think I’m nuts about this theory, ask yourself: “What have they done for YOU lately?”
This week we have two security mishaps: Facebook VS the NSA
Let’s start with the genius who single handedly invented the perfect spying system for the U.S. government: Mark Zuckerburg. It seems Mark must have been out looking at Google glasses instead of taking care of business, A Palestinian hacker found a way to get on Mark’s personal message board:
A computer hacker has broken into Facebook owner Mark Zuckerberg’s account and posted a message on his homepage to show how the site’s security is deficient, after the company’s security team snubbed his efforts to report the problem.
The man, who goes by the name “Khalil,” said on his blog that he submitted several reports to Facebook’s “white hat” team about a site vulnerability that allowed him to post on anybody’s wall, despite their security settings, reports Gizmodo.
But the second time Khalil submitted the error, he received an e-mail telling him “I am sorry this is not a bug.”
“Exploiting bugs to impact real users is not acceptable behavior for a white hat,” said Facebook. “
Researchers are permitted to create test accounts through a special Facebook site, the social network’s security team said, noting that more than $1 million has been paid out in rewards to people who report bugs.
Right. The guy tries to help Zuckerface out, and Zuckerberg acts like your usually immoral liberal: He tells him thanks, but get lost. After all, the government can get on FACEBOOK and get into anybody’s homepage, so what’s new here?
And then, there’s the NSA:
Last week, The Washington Post reported that an NSA internal audit and other secret documents provided by Snowden showed the agency “has broken privacy rules or overstepped its legal authority thousands of times each year since Congress granted the agency broad new powers in 2008.”
But there was less than meets the eye in this story, Journal editors write. “The critics claim to have finally found evidence of government abuse, but the truth is that the evidence shows no abuse and even reveals admirable self-monitoring by the NSA.” The audit reveals that the agency only broke its privacy rules 2,776 times over the last year among the tens of millions of communications it intercepts monthly. And the auditors said the majority of slip-ups were “database query incidents due to human error.”
Nobody wants to know why we are spending trillions funding the unconstitutional NSA spying when Facebook does most of the surveillance on everybody in the world for free?
So, who wins the Nobody’s Perfect award for the week?
David Miranda—a journalist working with the Guardian who visited Edward Snowdon in Russia, and very stupidly took his laptop and all his notes with him on his return trip to Britian. He was stopped by the British government, interrogated for 9 hours, and then his laptop and notes were confiscated.
He should have found some chick at the airport to carry that back for him.
You really gave them….holiday pictures of Moscow encoded with secrets because Edward Snowdon is actually an undercover agent for the CIA.
