Being as we are all used to the tricks and politics of Washington…you know the “delay, delay, delay” and the “cause the biggest problem so that we can come in with OUR solution”…. “Put another fear scaring headlines on the news to distract attention from the crimes of politicians” and the “accuse the other party of doing EXACTLY that crime which you are currently committing” and the “lie, lie, and then lie some more” tactic…how can we be surprised at all at anything happening in Washington?
Yesterday’s victory by Rand Paul, in which he was able stop for a few days, the collecting of everybody’s data, was viewed by Americans who care, as a good thing.
But most of the GOP were in panic mode—because evidently, it not only stopped collecting our data but also the data of terrorists.
It also meant at least a temporary end to the FBI’s authority to gather business records in terrorism and espionage investigations, and to more easily eavesdrop on a suspect who is discarding cellphones to avoid surveillance
Tell me: Whose idea was it to lump a ‘all or nothing’ clause into data collecting? It certainly wasn’t Rand Paul..but that’s how Washington works. Make it look like it’s Rand Paul who is putting us all in danger, NOT the real people.
As Mike Lee pointed out, the Senate knew this day was coming for years…and they did, nothing.(On purpose)…so that the one man who tried to do something was made the villain.
So, Rush is for the Patriot Act and the giving up of the 4th amendment. Okay…good to know. And then he launched right into “Forget all this, they are going to spy on us anyway and what you all need to be paying attention to is Scott Walker.”
I turned on FOX, and sure enough…it was Scott Walker that was the subject of the day. I haven’t checked, but Scott must be for the Patriot Act.
What that does tell you? Rand Paul’s victory put a big scare into the GOP and that means, they don’t think Rand Paul can be controlled. They’d better get to focusing on him.
Rush, along with John McCain said that Rand Paul did this just to get funds for his elections. Right. And Edward Snowden just wanted to have the full force of the United Stated Government hunt him down and kill him…
I don’t buy it.
As far as this Nobody is concerned, Rand Paul is just doing what they all should be doing…following the law. The Constitution. Rush probably lost a few listeners today. I know, I will listen between his lines a lot more carefully than before.
John McCain, R-Ariz. complained to reporters that Paul places “a higher priority on his fundraising and his ambitions than on the security of the nation.”
I don’t know about you…but I’d trust Rand Paul with my safely long before I would trust mad dog John McCain.
As I watched Rand Paul on C-Span today pontificate the truth on the Senate floor, I quite imagined what it must have been like long ago, when John Quincy Adams, went through the same ordeal (although much worse) on the floor of the House back before the Civil War. Somethings are just dead wrong. Slavery was, and so is an American government, spying on its own people.
For years Adams argued, cajoled, attacked and shouted relentlessly for the right of petition, and was basically the most hated man in the Congress because he fought for over 14 years to get rid of the gag rule: a gag rule that was put up to prevent anyone in Congress from even discussing slavery.
The Southern Democrats just refused to talk about it…so it isn’t the first time in our history that Congress has been full of scoundrels.
Will Rand Paul have to fight for 14 more years do the same? Or will, they just appease the American people, say it is stopped, and go right on spying on us? They lie to our face every day.
It helps to remember that the NSA surveillance program is not only unconstitutional, it is not protecting us much at all. On the contrary, it’s lacks logic of any kind. Why monitor everyone, when you should only be monitoring dangerous people? It’s not only a big waste of money, it’s completely moronic..and so we all ask, WHY are so many in government demanding that they do this?
T say that the NSA is protecting us…and then allow open borders…is beyond belief. Any pretension that our leaders are trying to protect us is laughable, when they do nothing to protect and defend our borders, from which, many jihadists have already entered. They could have prevented that…they did not.
Right before this speech, Rand Paul was begging the President for the remaining five-minute he deserved— but John McCain was throwing a hussy fit on the floor. Why, why how DARE Rand Paul even pursue this because at that very moment, ISIS was run a muck all over the world.
Right now, they are voting to stop talking and debating it. It’s Sunday after all, they all want to get out of there.
The proponents to keep the act, have been all over the TV for weeks shouting the same message” THE SKY WILL FALL! WE WILL BE ATTACKED! WE MUST GATHER EVERYONE’S RECORDS!” Karl Rove has been especially scary. He’s scary enough.
The main reason they give to keep the act: Even though all the records of everyone is being collected, nobody in government is looking at your records! Go ahead: Laugh here: Ha ha…ha.
Right. Snowdon told us that the NSA was collecting nude pictures..and passing them around the office like baseball cards.
Samsung now has a camera built into its TV sets to record YOU….but they won’t. Nope.
Police officers can now turn on your cell phone if they feel like it.
Just because they say they don’t do it, doesn’t mean they can’t.
Do you feel safe with that? Especially with a President who has claimed that conservative Americans are more suspicious than regular Terrorists? With a President who says when the time comes, he will SIDE with Islam
Not only that, the government can come into your house without you knowing it, and go through your computer and home. They can come into your house, question you, and if you tell anyone they did, anyone at all, you can be taken away, without a trial. You cannot have a lawyer. You cannot get representation or a trial by a jury of your peers.
The President himself can have you killed, at his own whim. And nobody will know. That’s so un-American I can’t even begin to imagine it.
This is no difference than Stalin’s Russia.
Besides: when has the government stopped any terrorist act? And what have they done for us lately? Let’s see…economy….security…losing wars…worse educational system in the Western Hemisphere…cities going broke, half the people without full-time jobs…and most of us losing our health care or going broke trying to pay for it. And…let’s not mention inflation. No. Nasty little word that.
Right. Our government is doing such a bang up job.
Go back to President George W. Bush. The World Trade Center was bombed when Clinton was in office, how stupid are they? Many FBI agents warned them. Some guy even predicted it in a book. And somebody knew about the 9/11 attack because an awful lot of people traded stock the day before and made millions.
And yet, today, Rove and the FOX Rino’s…all say, “We just couldn’t have known!”
That’s all BS. The real truth is, our government has been monitoring our phone calls and emails since before 9.11.
Just because they say they don’t ‘use’ that power, doesn’t mean they won’t. And they have.
How can we trust them? How many times have they LIED to us?
Obama used the IRS to go after all the Tea Party organizations to shut them all down before the election…we are suppose to trust that nobody in Government is looking at our records?
Then why collect them in the first place? Why KEEP them? You know why. Data. Study…money…just imagine the power they can have with all that information.
The Clinton’s gathered all the FBI records illegally on Congress long ago, which is WHY we are all-seeing Dennis Hastert being trashed about some sexual extortion that happened long before he even became a politician. They needed to take Bill off the sexual map, which isn’t easy. Dennis isn’t even IN politics anymore. Perfect.
The American people didn’t even KNOW that they were collecting every phone call, every library book, every little keystroke. Not until Snowdon told us.
The Patriot Act is not about protecting Americans from ISIS, (Because let’s fact it folks, if they were dead serious about protecting us from ISIS, they wouldn’t let thousands of Muslims into America, and they would KEEP them from coming back after they visited a jihad camp.
BUT THEY Don’t do that, so if they can’t stop a terrorist from blowing up a Boston marathon, how can listening to your phone conversation do anything at all, but tell them who you are going to vote for?
It’s all about power, control, and politicians being able to protect themselves from the American people….and it’s the American people they have to watch.
Bulk collection of phone records didn’t find or stop the Tsarnaev brothers from the massacre in Boston. In fact, one might argue that all of the money spent on bulk collection takes money away from human analysts that might have noticed the older brother’s trip to become radicalized in Chechnya. Just this week the FBI opined that they don’t have enough resources to monitor jihadists suspects in the U.S.
I would argue this will make us more safe, not less. It has been said that finding a terrorist is like finding a needle in a haystack. Well, for years, your government’s answer has been to make the haystack bigger by gobbling up every American’s information.
That must end.
Our Muslim CIA director, John Brennan, said this:
“This is something that we can’t afford to do right now,” Brennan said of allowing the counter terrorism provisions to expire at midnight Sunday. Brennan did not mention Paul by name, but he expressed exasperation over the politicization of important programs which he insisted “have not been abused” by US authorities.
Maybe Americans should be able to listen to the phone records of our politicians. Now THAT would be a the best protection yet
The American people might win a short victory tonight, thanks to Rand, but none of us know if this is exactly what the elites REALLY want: If we are attacked, they can blame it on Rand Paul. And if Obama has done one thing continually for his time in office, it has been to set us up for one.
THAT horrible day, will be on the “I will stand with Islam” head of Barack Hussein Obama.
Nobody Gets Email
Not awake yet? Then don’t miss this…One-of-a-kind, rather incredibe version of the Star Spangled Banner….then applaud! (LOL)
(Thanks to Conservative)
Okay. Maybe I’m just paranoid. Maybe my imagination is going too wild. Maybe I’ve been spending too many hours reading, lying in the sun—maybe I should not be concerned:
There IS a scientific explanation for everything…right?
Here’s what’s bothering me.
Not too long ago, I got a new modem, and a brand new router. I have faster internet. AND yet,
Whenever I go to the Glenn Beck site, I get kicked OFF the internet. Within seconds. .
I can visit any other site on the net, and this doesn’t happen. It’s bugging me.
Could this be a virus? Could there be something out there that keeps people from logging on to Glenn Beck’s’ site?
The other weird thing I don’t understand is cell phones.
Just this morning, my husband and I were discussing going to see the new Movie “Guardians of the Galaxy” and on the table beside us, was his cell phone.
He picked it up to scroll down his messages and then all over a sudden we heard, (and very loudly I might add) two people having a conversation.
It took us a few minutes, but we recognized that it was a conversation we had had several days ago. In fact, it was a very long conversation.
I’m sure WE did not record that. (We have the cheapest cell phones money can buy) Neither of us had any idea that you could record whole conversations on your cell phone. It just popped out at us…and frankly, it was disturbing.
Since I don’t claim to know much about the internet, OR cell phones. Anybody out there who can explain either of these weird happenings in a common sense way, I’d appreciate it.
Will cell phones just record at random different conversations all by themselves and play them back to you for fun?
And more importantly, is this happening to anyone else?
The computer? I can easily assume that there are many people who would want to block websites.
In fact, is this just the beginning? Didn’t Obama give the internet up to the ‘world’?
The Cell Phone? I like to think that, IF someone has been monitoring our phone conversations, than I’d like to thank them for letting us know for sure. After all, we still believe that even though our leaders have gone completely out of their minds, most Americans are decent people.
We were discussing….rose bushes. I had a lot to say on the subject, you can imagine.
Anyway, if the NSA, or the Obama administration finds amusement in my little patriot world, may I end with one statement…
“Don’t you have bigger fish to fry?” LOL!
I finally got to watch the Brian Williams interview with Snowden tonight. I found him much more stable and confident than when he was running all over the world looking for a place to hide.
Still, while I’ve yet to hear any damage to any person (besides our big government officials) from any source, there are still people out there saying he is a traitor.
If you get a chance to see the whole interview, it’s worth it. To many, the proof that he is a traitor is that he ran. Anyone who has looked at the list of people who have worked for the Clinton’s who have died mysterious deaths (over 60) probably would not take chances with our government giving them a fair trial. After all, did they give the video guy a fair trial?
Like Edward said: They HAD the intelligence on 9/11 AND the Boston Bombers, and yet, they did nothing.
Obama said today, while he was giving himself another photo boost with the parents of the young soldier he ‘saved’ from Afghanistan, “America never leaves our soldiers behind.”
While you may think, like me, that is a big fat lie, it’s not. It’s true: America doesn’t leave her soldiers behind. But Obama does.
So, who you going to believe: Edward Snowden, or Barry? More importantly, who YOU gonna call when the NSA is spying on you?
Nobody Knows: It’s been almost two weeks, and nobody knows where the Boeing 777 went, but what we DO know, is that the cable stations have MILKED this story for all it’s worth. Did the pilot kill the passengers by going up to 45,000 feet? (And do oxygen masks stop working at that altitude?) Did he just kill the oxygen? Did he program the plane to turn left? Was it an electrical short? Was there another person on that plane that helped hide Obama’s birth certificate in Hawaii? Was this a radical Muslim working with Obama on a secret mission to hide out in an undisclosed bunker, until the day it would be released only to drop a nuke on Washington D.C. while Obama (and his buddies) were out-of-town? Hey…that’s at least as feasible as the Indian Triangle supernatural theory. Or aliens stealing it to study. And since two Iranians got on board illegally, will Israel be the target? Nobody Knows. Nobody knows what happened to Jimmy Hoffa, but then again, Nobody Cares.
Nobody Knows just when they are going to stop talking about it, but if you want to read ALL the theories, it’s all here.
Nobody Knows: Gee. When did GM get a woman CEO? (just a few months ago) Was this done in order to ‘soften’ the blow that for 11 years GM knew about a hazard that killed people in their cars, but it was all about keeping your eye on that bailout money? You had more important things to do GM? Was that part made in China? Anyway, the woman is now being hailed as great, (just watch this fantastic propaganda video below) because she came out and admitted it. Mary looks like everybody’s sister…you wouldn’t want to hurt dear Mary by suing GM now would you? Evidently Mary just found out about this..so I suggest Obama make her his new Auto Czar. Being good at denying knowledge of ANYTHING, is the progressive metal of honor. And speaking of Metals of honor–
Nobody Knows why Obama gave veterans Metals at the White House today. Everybody knows he hates the military. I think I would have suggested they send it to me in the mail. I don’t care how much I deserved that metal, to receive it from Obama would have been…more than a letdown. I would have HAD to say something like “I don’t LIKE what you are doing to our veterans Obama, and …just hand it to me. I want my fellow soldier to do the honors.” And then, I would have been escorted out of the room, and you would have never seen me again.
I don’t think I could have done it. But that’s me.
Nobody Knows—that I watched the movie, THE AMERICAN staring George Clooney last night, and unless you like an hour of sex scenes, with what is SURE to be a photoshoped Clooney, skip this one. On a scale of one to ten, I’d give it a .0005. There was only one scene that was worth watching, the evil sinister woman assassin gets a bullet to the head,–very rewarding, looked real. She deserved it. George had ONE expression throughout the whole movie, no doubt, from eating too many goats in Somalia.
Nobody Knows if Russia is going to invade all its old territories, since it has announced that it could make nuclear toast out of America. And Nobody Knows, if those elite rich snobs in the European Union still think the United States is going to come to their rescue. Would they give up their countries for Putin’s assurances that they would be allowed to keep their own fortunes?
EVERYBODY knows that answer.
Nobody Knows–It’s now being revealed that the NSA has recorded every single phone conversation ever held in probably every country. So, Nobody Knows why they haven’t used that to find out where that plane went….probably because they were listening to Mitt Romney’s phone conversations.
He has a really big family. So does Sarah Palin. I, on the other hand, am VERY boring. Absolutely. I swear on Justin Bieber’s left foot.
Nobody Knows—how hard it was to date Mick Jagger. (His girlfriend committed suicide) and Nobody Knows how Justin Beiber really hurt his foot. And Nobody Knows how many girls are going to complain to their boyfriends that they want to make love in the back of a limo because Beyoncé does it. And Nobody Knows if those girls will have to PAY for that limo. (See Beyoncé’s last video because Bill O’Reilly can’t stop talking about it.)
Nobody wonders if this is going to boost limousine company profits? Anyone with a limo service out there?
Nobody Knows what we found out that Obama did this week:
“In a move that went little noticed in 2009, the White House quietly amended portions of the Freedom of Information Act, making it more difficult for Americans to request public documents for review.”
Yes…the powerful don’t want you to know.
So, you won’t. Hey, we STILL don’t know who killed JFK, so we might as well get used to being ignorant.
And finally, Nobody Knows, I have no idea how to fly a plane, and Nobody Knows, that I thought this video was cute.
Next week, I’ll be sure to tell you more stuff…I don’t know.
Did you get the feeling that Obama wanted to speak for an hour about the NSA program last week? I didn’t. If you read the speech: it’s very clear—this is one speech Obama just added a few things to because he said too many patriotic things in it. For instance, he had some grand quotes like this one:
“The world expects us to stand up for the principle that every person has the right to think and write and form relationships freely – because individual freedom is the wellspring of human progress.”
Obviously not an Obama thought, and why?
Because the Obama’s administration has been targeting conservatives with the full arm of his power: It’s been proved that the IRS, personally went out to destroy the Tea Party. This of course, is not new. Both Nixon and Clinton used the IRS to go after their political enemies, but in typical Obama fashion, he has taken the executive power to the 9th degree. After all, the former IRS commissioner visited the White House 118 times in two years.
I don’t think they were talking about Beyonce.
Obama tried to assure the world last week that he will take some steps to help us all feel better–like give the problem over to Eric Holder (yeah, that trustworthy guy) to find some answers. And…all those emails and phone records of good American law-abiding citizens? Obama is going to find a ‘third’ party to hold them.
Obama’s solutions always have someone he trusts in charge. Obama can, with this new-found idea, put a third-party in charge that answers only to him. And that third-party will have all the good stuff. Valerie Jarrett is going to need an island, and probably at least $600 billion dollars to build a new NSA office. Yes—Obama says he will have–
“a third-party retain the bulk records, with the government accessing information as needed.”
It’s the phrase “as needed” that we should ask, “Who determines when it’s needed? Obama? ”
So, why does the Government have to collect data on every single human being on the planet?
Here’s why according to Obama:
“It is hard to overstate the transformation America’s intelligence community had to go through after 9/11. Our agencies suddenly needed to do far more than the traditional mission of monitoring hostile powers and gathering information for policymakers – instead, they were asked to identify and target plotters in some of the most remote parts of the world, and to anticipate the actions of networks that, by their very nature, cannot be easily penetrated with spies or informants.
Why is this necessary? The program grew out of a desire to address a gap identified after 9/11. One of the 9/11 hijackers – Khalid al-Mihdhar – made a phone call from San Diego to a known al Qaeda safe-house in Yemen. NSA saw that call, but could not see that it was coming from an individual already in the United States.”
This tells you the problem: In order to protect ourselves from getting attacked again, our leaders are telling us we must go OVER THERE to fight the jihadist, while at the same time ignoring the fact. that they are coming in to our country through our own –unprotected borders. Evidently, nobody knew Khalid al Mihdhar was even here.
But…neither George W. Bush OR Obama ever brought up that rather obvious fact.
Our men and women in the FBI and the CIA had given at least 15 warnings about 9/11 (Not to mention during Clinton they bombed the trade center once before, a BIG clue.) but it was the people at the very top that FORBID the departments to communicate with each other. To most Americans, 9.11 should NEVER have happened. Are we to believe that the billions that have been spent daily on our defense …uh…well…we just missed that one? Are we to accept that Ft. Hood was a workplace problem instead of a politically correct military gone mad?
And by the way…..exactly what does the government do that is right? It’s getting that bad.
Add to that the insane liberal Presidents who LOVE to transport as many Muslims as they can into America out of the good of their hearts. Clinton brought thousands over from Bosnia, and Obama just announced he wants to let in at least 30,000 Syrians. All funded by the American taxpayers of course.
Poor people. Can they assure us that none of these people want to strap on a dirty bomb and shout “Allah Akbar” in the middle of some sports event?
What Obama did make clear is —This is my decision, I am going to keep the NSA spying.
How did the rest of the world take this? This from the BBC:
But the real truth behind the Obama administration’s proposed reforms may have come from Business Insider’s Josh Barro, who tweeted that “nobody votes on this issue”. For the most part, the US public just doesn’t care – and Mr. Obama appears happy to keep it that way.
(We don’t CARE? )
True, there’s a portion of the population, composed of civil libertarians and conservatives suspicious of government power, that vociferously objects to the government’s intelligence-gathering activities.
In a poll the first week of January, 48% of Americans said they support the government’s phone metadata surveillance program. While 47% opposed it, these are hardly the type of numbers that will encourage a massive policy shift.
Okay…I’ve told you before. Don’t believe polls. They are as about as real as the money the Feds print out of thin air.
The truth is: Obama is a liar, he doesn’t know what the heck he is doing on the world stage, and that makes him a dangerous man. How can anyone deny that now? Other former allies are drawing their own “red lines” to his face, and they are not about to back down.
And Obama’s answer to them?
“in the same way that the intelligence services of every other nation does. We will not apologize simply because our services may be more effective.”
No one expects China to have an open debate about their surveillance programs, or Russia to take the privacy concerns of citizens into account
I don’t know what you thought about that line, but I thought it smacked of a bit of jealousy. Poor baby. HE is expected to tow the line and everybody else gets off Scott free! Not fair! Yes, Obama is jealous. Jealous that China and Russia don’t have to give long speeches about democracy because being a dictator is so much easier, and he is trying so hard to get there. That’s why he says over and over how he will ‘act alone’ without Congress to get things done. He just can’t help himself.
Toward the end he said this to assure his fairness and concern:
Just as we balance security and privacy at home, our global leadership demands that we balance our security requirements against our need to maintain the trust and cooperation among people and leaders around the world,”
Obama might as well say: “If you like your privacy …you can keep your privacy .”
Right…Mr. President: Say it one….more….time.
Rand Paul has some ideas on how to stop the NSA from gathering everyone’s information. As far as I know, he’s leading this movement, and despite the vast propaganda on how much they need this power, I agree with Rand Paul. It’s overkill. There’s a better way, because as we saw with the IRS, any President can use it to his advantage.
It’s a fundamental right that we all deserve, and should fight for.
Here’s a first: Jon Stewart wins the Nobody’s Fool Award this week for putting forth the perfect comedy routine about the lies Obama told about the NSA.
He goes on the theme: “If You Like Your NSA Spy, You Can Keep Your NSA Spy.”
Congratulations Jon! Hanging out with Bill O’Reilly is actually helping you become a more ‘enlightened’ comedian….
Now…if you would just get your friend Bill Maher into rehab….

So, even supporters of Obama don’t like being spied on? Why aren’t the Republicans making these video’s, mmmmmm?
Everybody who has had a computer, probably at one time in their lives, had McAfee antivirus on their computer. And last night…John was on Coast to Coast.
The man is pretty incredible. He started out selling drugs: got a Master’s Degree in Math: than worked with NASA, started his own highly successful Antivirus company, and then…suddenly he was on the “most wanted” list. The liberal media tried to hang him as a criminal, and make him out to be a drug-selling, cocaine sniffing, murderer. And dangerous. He said he was set up in Belize, and yes, I believe him. In case you were not aware, he was living in Belize when the government accused him of murdering his neighbor.
But…it’s no wonder they don’t like him. John is developing a device that everyone will be able to put on their phones and computers that will keep the NSA from listening in on you or tracking you. He admitted that the government will probably not let him sell it in the United States, but he will sell it to the rest of the world.
Merkel will probably give him free beer for the rest of his life.
Can you imagine? That is going to be one of the hottest products in the world, and everybody is going to want one. (Including me)
Oh…he also said he looked at the Obamacare code, and you can’t even repair it. It should be thrown out, which he said they will NEVER do. The reason he gave was that to save money, they hired people from India, and for it to work, the systems have to download to every computer, and it’s just too big, and that’s why it’s such a mess.
He reminds me very much of Richard Feynman. Very high I.Q….and a bit of a shit disturber…Having said that: He believes in the Constitution, and loves the founders of our country, and therefore, he is on a big hit list…because that makes him a terrorist in Obama’s world.
AND–He looks fabulous for a man of 78.
So, Richard wins my Nobody’s Fool Award for the week. We could use a lot more fools like John McAfee.
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.
Insanity: doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.- Albert Einstein.
This week we have the NSA whistleblower, Edward Snowdon, VS the United States Government.
A young man does an interview with the British paper, The Guardian, and tells the world that our government is spying on everything we do. He believes it’s wrong, and even though he knows he will be hunted down, and possibly killed, he did it anyway. After that statement, the man just disappeared. Snowden, and this is very important, allegedly downloaded the country’s most sensitive secrets, especially how the U.S. Government does surveillance abroad, so other countries would know how we spy on them. If it’s true, that’s not good, although I don’t for a minute believe that the rest of the world is that stupid, and didn’t know this anyway.
Since we haven’t heard from the man, we have no idea what the truth is. John Kerry, a man who lied big time about his own involvement in Vietnam, and who branded American soldiers as war-criminals when he was younger, said that “people may die as a consequence of what this man (Snowden) did.”
And, in a “I told you so” Nobody smirking moment, (Read yesterday’s post) John Kerry, our defense secretary, also said this:
“It is possible that the United States will be attacked because terrorists may now know how to protect themselves in some way or another, that they didn’t know before.,”
Life is wonderful when you can blame some insignificant nobody, isn’t it?
And then, we have The United States government:
When it comes to protecting the secrets of the United States, I think the Democrats make Edward Snowdon look like an amateur.
Take Bill Clinton. His North Korea appeasement program included a nuclear reactor. He also provided North Korea with detailed satellite photos of Kadena during the 1990’s as part of an “earth resources” deal with China. The U.S. Dept. of Commerce documents show the Chinese satellite “remote Sensing Center” was supplied with “world class remote sensing data acquisition, processing, archive and distribution” equipment. The state of the art satellite equipment was proved by Huges Corp.
In 1996, President Clinton personally signed an executive order releasing a wide variety of space and missile technology for export to China. That executive order was supported by the CEO’s of Lockheed, Loral, ad Huges and it allowed China to purchase sophisticated electronic guidance and control systems for its military missiles.
Remember: China helped Pakistan nuke up, and Pakistan helped North Korea, Iran and Iraq. All because Bill and his big military companies, wanted to make some money. In the meantime, he was encouraging all other nations, like Japan and India to not nuke at all.
So, Bill Clinton has made it possible for China to be able to nuke the United States. Any city. Any time. And now, North Korea. And yet, he is still adored.
That was treason of the highest order. No other way to look at it: Treason.
What else happened during Bill’s reign? Remember the Los Alamos fire? Opps, a Chinese spy got in and downloaded everything. In fact, in the last ten years that I have been reading about politics, I can’t count the number of times our secrets have been stolen. Remember when the head of the CIA was our biggest informer to Russia? Who let THAT happen? If this program is so damn good, how come we do not stop China from stealing all our good stuff?
And then you have the current President, who has continued to lie. He continues to fundamentally change our now, socialist America, into a soon- to -be communist dictator. He is flooding our shores with Muslims, and his cabinet with Muslim sympathizers. He let men die in Benghazi, sent the IRS after patriotic Americans, pushed Obamacare through in the middle of the night, and that’s only what we know of.
Who is the bigger monster here? Do we let him pass because we honor the office, even if it means the office is destroyed and replaced with a dictator?
So, who wins the Nobody’s Perfect award for the week?
Is Edward Snowdow out to kill innocent Americans? Or, do you trust the government that rules you now?
If you choose our government, then you are doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results. Snowdon, might be a lone traitor, we won’t know unless we hear him speak. BUT—Our own government has hurt, and will continue to hurt more of its own citizens that Edward could ever dream of hurting. You have to buy the ‘facts’ that everyone is telling you, that he intends to give all our secrets away.
To say the Edward Snowdon is a bigger traitor than Bill Clinton or Barack Obama is insanity. And to keep trusting the criminals in office, is just more insanity. But that just my lonely Nobody Opinions.

Edward Snowden, is being ostracized all across the United States: on the blogs, in the media, across the web.
So, the question is: Should Shia Labeouf be prosecuted for letting out the fact that he was told by an FBI agent that we were all being recorded, and then telling millions about it on Jay Leno?
The show aired October 16, 2008.
While Edward was sworn to secrecy, he did not give any secrets up…just the methodology. Its seems strange that Shia, who was working on a movie and got this information from an FBI agent, was not even talked about…because he was just a movie star.
Whatever happens, the great secret is now out, and forever more, we all have to really watch what we say, and do, because Big Brother is watching.
And that kind of stress put upon a people, is draconian. It goes against all levels of freedom.
Do we have to give up freedom for ‘protection’? When they stop building Mosques on every street corner, then I will consider that they are telling the truth.
This collecting of data is insane.
