Are whistleblowers sometimes ‘too good to be true’?

The NSA is the largest signals intelligence agency in the world and has quite publicly recorded, and quite publicly admitted to as well, every international communications from every nation to any nation for many years.

Everyone here knows that, or I thought they knew that, everyone but “the press” it seems.”

The Obama presidency has been, of late, inundated with scandals that the mainstream press tells us should bring down the government. It seems that one hits, then another, then another, they hit but then seem to go away.


Coincidentally, the Obama administration has also refused to arm Syrian rebels, refused to enforce a “no fly zone” over Syria and, despite hundreds of news stories to the contrary, continues to call on Israel to withdraw from the occupied territories.

What we are seeing is what Israel and her “hasbara” friends believe is a sophisticated disinformation campaign, inundating all media, from useless corporate networks and publications to supposed “independent” publications, many of them “online,” representing “right wing crazies” or the “anti-Zionist/anti-imperialist” left.

All are “spoon fed” the same disinformation and propaganda with the list of those “exposed” as propaganda agents growing by the hour.

SNOWDEN

Most recently, we have a longtime intelligence insider, Edward Snowden, coming forward with tales of NSA spying.

Snowden’s own words:

“I had access to the full rosters of everyone working at the NSA, the entire intelligence community, and undercover assets all over the world. The locations of every station, we have what their missions are and so forth. If I had just wanted to harm the US? You could shut down the surveillance system in an afternoon.”

Today, former presidential candidate Ron Paul cited his fear that Snowden might be subject to a drone attack.

When we look at Snowden, he was around for 9/11 and, though he claims to have full access to all top US intelligence sources, he seems blissfully ignorant about the single largest betrayal of, not just America, but the entire world.

We are supposed to believe that this NSA insider with “access to the full rosters of everyone working at the NSA…” wouldn’t be dying inside from guilt, having remained silent over complicity in so many crimes, so many abuses, so much death, so much torture.

Why speak up now, why say so little if risking one’s life? It makes no sense whatsoever.

Snowden also goes blank two rigged elections, murders like Pat Tillman, Osama bin Laden, John Wheeler III, two illegal wars, torture and rendition, drone warfare, government drug dealing and everything “false flag” and “Israel.”

Instead, he is reporting on NSA spying. Ho Hum. Why so much publicity, “bought” with so little “pocket change?”

THE NSA SPIES, THAT’S WHAT THEY DO

The NSA is the largest signals intelligence agency in the world and has quite publicly recorded, and quite publicly admitted to as well, every international communications from every nation to any nation for many years.

Everyone here knows that, or I thought they knew that, everyone but “the press” it seems.

A ‘WHISTLE-SQUEAKER?’

When I am being protected from “evil government” I always like to ask:

“Where were you when our government did 9/11?”
“When did you first suspect, when did you first know and when did you go public?”

Snowden has had a dozen years to take a position on that one, the “big one” as far as government crimes go, perhaps the biggest one of all time.

As far as I am concerned, if you aren’t onboard with reason and rationality, if you still have your “head in the sand” over 9/11, you are either “too stupid to live” or “crooked as hell.”

Even Judge Napolitano and Geraldo Rivera of Fox News came out citing 9/11 as an inside job and this was years ago.

When I seek advice or “protection,” the last place I tend to look for help is from “too stupid to live” or “crooked as hell.”

In America we have a lot of both, they are quite easy to find, especially if you don’t want either.

Idiots and “shills” are everywhere, America is famous for them.

JULIAN ‘SNOWDEN’ OR ‘EDWARD’ ASSANGE?

Who Snowden reminds me of is “Assange.”

Yesterday, on the Jeff Rense Show, we talked about Assange. What is Assange hiding from? We found no evidence that he is being investigated by the American government for anything.

In fact, no agency or congressional committee, no court, no military tribunal, no one whatsoever in America has any interest in arresting or prosecuting Julian Assange nor has there ever been any effort to do so, other than carefully orchestrated mis-direction from his Zionist/Neocon friends.

On December 6, 2010, former National Security Advisor, Zbigniew Brzezinski, cited “Wikileaks” as a front for an intelligence agency.

Which one is obvious.

THE STRANGE CASE OF BRADLEY MANNING

After three years of torture, Bradley Manning must never have mentioned Wikileaks or Julian Assange whatsoever.

If he had, Assange would have been indicted in the US. Were one to consider these facts and the inexorable conclusions one must draw from them, and one or two one “may” draw from them, it is quite possible that the entire “Manning/Assange” affair may well be an intelligence operation itself.

Can “they” be that smart or can “we” be that stupid?

Considering Assange is the protégé of Rupert Murdoch, the man many credit with appointing George W. Bush and Tony Blair to office, a man who “never met a war he didn’t like,” one might wonder why Assange would worry at all.

Is it all subterfuge? Assuming otherwise requires much “dot connecting” and believing the “unbelievable.” So many have forgotten that Assange has never been charged with anything but is hiding in an embassy to avoid “questioning” on a “possible charge” of low-level consensual sexual misconduct involving “women.”

THE ‘BUSH/ASSANGE NEXUS OF EVIL’

Both Assange and George W. Bush have worked very hard to develop the image of “ladies men” as opposed to “girlie men.” Such behaviors are common for those who seek public attention despite a long history of “sexual ambiguity.”

Could Assange’s “sexcapades” be a form of “beard?” (Def: A “beard” is a female companion hired by a male homosexual to provide “cover.”)

How many of those who sat in the oval office did so with a “first lady” acting as a “beard?”

Assange and Bush share more than sexual ambiguity. Both are Islamophobes, one planned 9/11, the other helped cover it up and both love war.

Assange is unique. He helps expose war crimes but supports the side that commits them. As Jim W. Dean so often says, “You just can’t make stuff like this up.”

THE IRS ‘SHELL GAME’

Of the dozen or so recent “scandals,” all of which find their roots in the Zionist/Neocon community, the IRS “scandal” is, perhaps, the lamest.

Were one to believe the mainstream press, the “Tea Party” is a “grass roots” group of heroic “constitutionalists” who are being targeted by a totalitarian police state regime.

However, the Tea Party, financed by the ultra-extremist Koch Brothers, is, perhaps, the purest form of “police state disease” and hardly “cure.”

The Tea Party favors a nuclear attack on Iran, military intervention in Syria, expanded drone attacks, more military aid to Israel, laws criminalizing criticism of Israel and elimination of all government oversight of Wall Street and the banks.

Who then requested that the IRS target the Tea Party?

Within days of the initial report, it was learned that the Republican Party asked for them to be investigated.

Why?

The Tea Party, though technically a part of the Republican Party, in actuality pushed aside key Republican politicians, damaging the “cohesive” (read: “robotic”) nature of the GOP.

Money that would have flowed into the GOP, oil and bankster cash, drug and gambling profits, kickbacks on defense contracts, went to the Tea Party instead of the mainstream Republicans.

THE IRS

Every day I receive an email alerting me to the suffering caused by the IRS investigation of the Tea Party. Before I break out into tears, I remember that they are financed by billionaires, I remember that they are the biggest supporters of wealth and power over the rights of decent and caring people around the world.

The IRS audits hundreds of thousands of everyday Americans each year. However, when they go after billionaire extremists with ties to organized crime, we are asked to recoil in shock.

Please excuse me if I don’t.

HOW HARD DOES A REAL WHISTLEBLOWER BLOW?

Always ask two questions:

Who benefits?
Why now?
Sometimes memory is dangerous. For years, activists have been angry at President Obama for not closing the illegal prison at Guantanamo.

On May 23, 2012, President Obama appeared on television demanding Guantanamo be closed and cited specifically how congress thwarted efforts comply with international law.

On May 24, 2012, twelve hours after the president’s speech, the Republican majority in the House of Representatives submitted legislation blocking any effort to close Guantanamo.

Within hours, Republican “think tanks” sent out news releases accusing President Obama of breaking his promise to close Guantanamo.

Similarly, the president cited the “War on Terror” as a waste of resources and a danger to American democracy stating that there was no evidence that a highly organized terror threat against the United States existed.

These aren’t the only such statements, such glaring inconsistencies that should have driven any news agency, be it the deaf and blind “mainstream” or the suspiciously inept “independent news.”

Few questioned Assange and when he was “outed” as an Israeli stooge, “they” waited for the story to “cool off” and tried to rehabilitate the right wing Zionist phony.

The point? The answer is simple, if you hear about it “in the news,” it is because “they” want you to hear about it “in the news.”

How do you know they are lying?

“Their lips are moving.”
