This Guy’s a Real American Hero

10 Jun

Edward Snowden has admitted to being the source of a recent, massive leak of government secrets to the public.

I’m much surprised to hear him speak.  He’s not only brilliant–which, all by itself is very rare–he’s also an extraordinarily-gifted communicator. And most extraordinarily, he has a real sense of ethics and values for which he’s prepared to lay down his life. He has real integrity. Character.  He belongs in Congress or perhaps even the White House rather than in hiding in Hong Kong. He appears to be as fine a man as America has ever produced. And, of course–as such–he is a natural target for arrest, or worse, by government.

      If he’s Paul Revere, who are the Tory collaborators who oughta be tarred and feathered?

      From the Wikipedia article on PRISM:

      Documents leaked by whistleblower Edward Snowden in June 2013 describe the PRISM program as enabling in-depth surveillance on live communications and stored information. It provides for the targeting of any customers of participating corporations who live outside the United States, or American citizens whose communications include web content of people outside the United States. Data which the NSA is able to obtain with the PRISM program includes email, video and voice chat, videos, photos, voice over IP conversations, file transfers, login notifications and social networking details.


      The documents identified several technology companies as participants in the PRISM program, including (date of joining PRISM in parentheses) Microsoft (2007), Yahoo! (2008), Google (2009), Facebook (2009), Paltalk (2009), YouTube (2010), AOL (2011), Skype (2011), and Apple (2012).

    Al, I agree with you about the character of Edward Snowden. His revelations about what is going on is unlike the Wikileaks information (info turned over to a foreign source). He just informed the public about what was going on.

    I, also, feel that his timing of disclosure was perfect after the release of snooping by the DOJ on major news journalist. This was the open door for him. This just (should have) disclosed to the American public the hypocrisy of the know news media. “Ye – it’s OK to spy on the American public in the name of national security, BUT, NOT US!!!”

    This does not just effect Obama, it effects the other two branches of government, too. There needs to be a lot of infighting among congressmen about spying on the American public. Ben Franklin’s thoughts about security verses freedom needs to be push long and hard to the American public.

    I pray that Mr. Snowden will be safe and secure. But, I fear, after all, the spy grid is really about getting people like him and us, not terrorist.

    wow, what F5 Perfect storm….Mr. A and his walking stick . . .

    after Waco it became fairly obvious that the construct of the so-called {govt} Nation was undergoing
    a serious deconstruction . . . and however unwittingly I was taking part by exposing the CRIMES
    committed by the supposed PUBLIC SERVANTS who were in fact EMPLOYEES of a global crime syndicate…

    what had begun post WW2 was the systematic preplanned destruction of the faith and confidence
    of the people who inhabited the land, a centuries old conspiracy that was being brought to fruition
    by the STUPOR of the people themselves…APATHY and indifference to the Truth.,7340,L-4390622,00.html

    …and the people were adjudicating themselves in real time…every day.

    RIGHT NOW the world teeters on the brink of incredible developements that have been put in motion by some very very devious characters and some, who like our young hero, may not be exactly as they appears on the stage right now..

    the Stage is crowded with a new SCANDAL everyday, blurring the distinction of real time events that
    stagger the imagination to consider the implications..

    sometimes we need our experience…sometimes we need our youth

    here’s hoping Alex makes it back to Austin safely . . .

    Too bad he has zero legal protection under the current law.
    “Moreover, the statute does not apply to federal workers employed by the Postal Service or the Postal Rate Commission, the Government Accountability Office, the Federal Bureau of
    Investigation, the Central Intelligence Agency, the Defense Intelligence Agency, the National Imagery and Mapping Agency, the National Security Agency, and any other executive entity that the President determines primarily conducts foreign intelligence or counter-intelligence activities.”

    There’s no reason for any sensible man or woman to support the U.S. Govt. Humans tend to rationalize their own position with respect to these criminals and often times they accept crumbs from the table of murder and mayhem because they are too weak to deserve freedom. Many Americans are accomplices of the U.S. warmongers and participate one way or another with the murdering scumbags that launch attacks upon children without mercy.

    God forbid I should ever take even a crinb from the bloodied hand of the FEDERAL THUGGERY that worships death.

    With saturating media with false flag events I think I will reserve my opinion on this guy. Obfuscation is SOP and if a good debate isn’t happening on some topic then it seems a topic will be ‘engineered’.

    How rare. A true man with the guts to speak out with integrity and intelligence. He is a treasure and his words listened to and heeded.

      I agree. Spying on all Americans is an arrogant over reach.
