Snowden, The NSA and The Media

I’ve always been skeptical of things I read but probably never more than I am today after years of reading 10’s of thousands of articles and trying to keep my ear to the ground and watch events unfold around the world.

So I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t skeptical of Edward Snowden.  If he is legit than he may be one of the biggest heroes of this century.  I don’t know,  and like many things I may never know for sure.  I can only hope that more and more details unfold so that even if you can’t know for sure you can draw accurate conclusions based on what you do know as fact.

This entire NSA leak seems to be the biggest story around, although to be fair it’s hard for me to accurately gauge that because I don’t listen to the radio or have cable, but from what I can see even from mainstream sources it’s pretty big as well it should be.  But why now?  I posted in early 2008 about ECHELON stating

” monitors every cell phone call, fax, email, Instant Message, land line call, radio, satellite transmission, and short wave radio transmission on the planet. Proof that this whole domestic spying thing is nothing new.”

So if this was blatantly obvious to me more than 5 years ago, when I was much less well informed how was this not a story?  In the now defunct link in that post it was from a history channel show about Echelon so it wasn’t as though people hadn’t heard about the NSA and their capabilities.   This story was decades old in 2008 even so why now 5 years later is it so startling for people?  I’m genuinely curious why now?  Why are people who meticulously publicly document their entire lives on facebook and twitter upset that the government has a backdoor to the servers?

Someone on the forum (truthinourtime.com/forum) mentioned that perhaps Barack’s handlers are upset with him for not invading Iran and Syria so they roll out scandal after scandal until he caves into them.  I think this is at least plausible and makes as much sense as anything else I could come up with.

I can’t see the very secretive very quiet NSA enjoying the spotlight though.  Unless of course like any Czarist Russia the bolsheviks aim to completely unsettle the current order and implement their own.  I think this is a possibility to since when people are in chaos for any length of time they will seek order even if the order isn’t of an ideal nature.  I hold no illusion that any branch of the government gives a damn about the Constitution but it is nonetheless a thorn in their side.   The only reason we don’t have holocaust denial laws or people brought up on charges of racist speech is the 1st amendment and the sole reason we have any firearms is the 2nd amendment.  Yes they’re both in tatters and incrementally destroyed year after year but perhaps we’re in the final stages where they will move from incrementalism to much faster advancement.   That is a topic for another post  hopefully another day.

Until then, stay vigilant.  Don’t cut your nose off to spite your face but remember that things aren’t always how they seem.  If the NYT is running with a story rest assured they have their own motives.

What Is The Wikileaks “Thermonuclear” File?

I was reading this thread over at the forums and thinking about what fate would befall Edward Snowden. The CIA is pretty much an open book compared to the NSA and I doubt they enjoy this attention. Apparently Snowden has more files to be released and is playing it safe in Hong Kong currently.  We shall see how this game unfolds.  The most well known leaker of information, Julian Assange is still stuck in the Ecuadorian embassy in Britian, not much of a life at all. So it would appear as though the US is content to play the waiting game with Assange.

Which brings me to the topic. I remember hearing several years ago when the neo cons were calling for Assanges head that wikileaks had a “thermonuclear file” which they would release if Assange was killed or captured.   Some people are quick to write off wikileaks as controlled opposition but they usually downplay the major leaks over the years like “collateral murder” and “climategate” the latter literally destroyed the entire narrative of global warming.   They still play the “climate change” game regularly but before climategate it was a full campaign to mold opinion, it was clearly a key part of their plan for world government.  So the “thermonuclear” file must be something far more devastating than that.

The only thing I can assume is that it contains proof that mossad did 9/11 (as evidenced by the great documentary 9/11 Missing Links).  Imagine if that information was leaked.  I don’t even know if I can imagine it because so much of current reality hinges on 9/11 being carried out by muslims with box cutters.

The ramifications would certainly shake up the world to say the least.  Why are we fighting arabs and giving aid to jews if jews and not arabs did 9/11?  Might Americans wake up to the jewish question when they realize that the media, the SCOTUS and congress are all run by jews and their lackeys and they lied to them?  They lied and Americas sons died in the desert for nothing.  How would that thought go over?

If the jews lied about 9/11 what else might they be lying about?  The holocau$t?  It’s all up for grabs and you bet your ass Mein Kampf would be flying off the shelves as peoples entire reality suddenly changes and drastically.  I could even foresee pogroms.

So suffice to say that would indeed by a thermonuclear leak, I can’t really think of one bigger than that.
