Snowden deals blow to ‘global electronic prison camp’ – Russian Orthodox Church
http://rt.com/politics/russian-orthodox-church-snowden-787/ ^

Posted on 08/07/2013 5:31:57 AM PDT by kronos77

Archpriest Vsevolod Chaplin has praised Russian authorities for not caving in to pressure from abroad, saying granting asylum to US whistleblower Edward Snowden would help prevent the establishment of a ‘global electronic prison camp’.

“It is encouraging news that Russia is demonstrating its independence in this case as it has in many others, despite the pressure” said the head of the Holy Synod’s Department for Relations between the Church and Society.

Vsevolod Chaplin added that the Snowden saga has been broadly discussed both on the domestic and international level, with Russia’s position potentially bolstering its image as a country upholding “the true freedom of ideals.”

The Russian cleric further argued that Snowden’s revelations confirmed the existence of a pernicious problem discussed by Orthodox Christians for many years – “the prospective of a global electronic-totalitarian prison camp”.

That is EXACTLY what I’ve felt ever since I first heard about the data mining and the huge facilities our ‘government’ has built to house this info.

We’re already in this ‘camp’ folks. Ain’t no getting out now.

It still works if Mephistopehles is the majority shareholder of the operation.

The uncomfortable thought occurs in the current evil age, that the U.S.A. could be the wicked Babylon of Revelation. Prayers for God’s mercy are definitely in order.

But, isn’t this camp kinda like Stalag 13, where Klink pretended to be in charge, but Hogan and the guys could have left at any point? And who is Sgt Schultz in this scenario?

Exactly. Individuals are rapidly, willingly and sometimes unknowingly becoming electronically tethered by nefarious totalitarians who have myriads of agendas.

Got freedom?

Putin made it very clear. We accept the asylum concept in the same way the USA does.....and neither country has EVER turned over an asylum refugee.

No, it's not.

It's like Stalag 17, where William Holden, who is a flawed character in his own right, nevertheless knows something ain't right, and Peter Graves is watching him and turns the other prisoners against him and they beat the hell out of him and almost kill him.

Will it have the same ending?

I have no idea.

Planned Parenthood Will Run Obamacare's Federal Data Hub With Private Patient Info
by Elise Hilton | Washington, DC | LifeNews.com | FR Posted by smoothsailing

EXCERPT Enter the Federal Data Hub, w/ govt access to “reams of personal information compiled by federal agencies ranging from the IRS to the DOD.....navigated by an army of “patient navigators.”

The federal government is planning to quietly enact what could be the largest consolidation of personal data in the history of the republic,” Paul Howard of the Manhattan Institute and Stephen T. Parente, a U of Minnesota finance professor, wrote in USA Today. No wonder that there are concerns about everything from identity theft to the ability of navigators to use the system to register Obamacare participants to vote.

And….....it gets even worse. One group acting as “patient navigators” will be Planned Parenthood: Planned Parenthood is among the long list of…organizations that are expected to receive taxpayer-funded navigator grants. The navigator grants would further enable Planned Parenthood, the largest abortion provider in America, to continue its misuse of taxpayer dollars to [supplement] their big abortion business,” said Rep. Diane Black (R-Tenn.), who says she wants to eliminate the navigator program — for which $54 million in funds will be made available — even without a Planned Parenthood link because it’s ‘ripe for fraud and abuse’, violations of privacy and identity theft.

The navigators will receive 20-30 hours of online training on the 1200 page Obamacare law, and some feel that isn’t enough, likening it to “giving someone a first-aid course and then making him a med-school professor.” In addition, some lawmakers say that the standards set by HHS could allow felons to access info----the entire system is open to fraud and corruption. House Budget Committee chairman Paul Ryan says this is a hugely under-reported story, and that the Data Hub is a “danger to civil liberties.” ......we can all say good-bye to the shreds of privacy we have left.

That is another way Putin bitch-slapped Obama. After Obama promoted homosexuality in the USA, Putin all but BANNED it in Russia : )

Sounds about right to me.

You can plug whatever players/countries/Intel groups/LEOs you want into the equation but it comes out the same.

There is no - and will never again be - privacy. Short of going Amish in some cave in VW, ID, etc.

And then they will hunt you down for being off the grid.
