Michael Hastings was “Breitbarted”.

(Looks like Snowden didn't want the same treatment...?)

Everything Michael Hastings was investigating was most likely known by certain alphabet agencies. And now we know that would have been true of Breitbart as well. How many phone calls, how many emails, how many conversations of reporters are being tagged, tracked and hacked into by this administration?

“Ministry of Truth in newspeak from George Orwell’s 1984.
Their job was to “audit” the history and news so that it fit the official party line.
The original info.. Down the memory hole.”

George Orwell at that time could not see the possibility of of a society without hard print newspapers and books, and libraries with hard print archives that could not be changed. Instead we are moving towards a digitized history, with Kindles, and internet files, and manipulable search engines mostly controlled by governments and a few media moguls who are all in bed together, many times for political purposes.

Changing our history will become possible by editing global media files and search engines. The Kindle history book that kids will use will be edited for political correctness etc., and no one will be wiser.

As generations pass on, history will be subject to actual change. 1984 was a bad omen of things to come.

The term ‘overseers’ is meant to sound ominous and threatening. NWO globalists just love terms like that. Makes them feel powerful because deep down they are wicked and pathetic.

The Washington Post acting like a real newspaper? Well guess stranger things have happened....


No. The WaPo just hates the US military MORE than it loves Obama.

Now that we know the regime has been spying on journalists, people should think seriously about the sudden death of Andrew Breitbart less than FIVE HOURS after he called Sheriff Joe Arpaio on the phone, heard Joe’s evidence of BC forgery, and told Arpaio that the evidence was good. Breitbart had been railed on by Joseph FArah for not covering the eligibility issue but said he wouldn’t because the evidence wasn’t good enough and there was no way to get evidence that WOULD be good enough. In an evening phone call, Breitbart’s reasons for not reporting on the issue were gone, and less than 5 hours after that phone call that was probably being listened to by the regime - and before Breitbart could write anything up about the subject - Breitbart fell to the ground dead in a death that the coroner never even investigated for covert assassination methods.

Part of the fraud done on Obama’s records was the sanitization of his passport file, which was accomplished by 3 breaches of Obama’s passport file, with the help of John Brennan’s company. Now we find that Michael Hastings was about to expose big-time bad stuff on John Brennan when he was offed in suspicious circumstances that also went un-investigated by the LA Police Dept.

Methinks John Brennan may have some very serious blood on his hands, and nobody is safe until he gets due process and final justice...

This Administration is frighteningly criminal. What do they need to do to wake up the masses?

This is the Washington Post article about the audit. The reference is part way down. Might want to access it soon as it will probably disappear.

The documents provided by Snowden offer only glimpses of those questions. Some reports make clear that an unauthorized search produced no records. But a single “incident” in February 2012 involved the unlawful retention of 3,032 files that the surveillance court had ordered the NSA to destroy, according to the May 2012 audit. Each file contained an undisclosed number of telephone call records.

The above is the extract out of the article.

It’s the style for limo liberals bazillionaires to call themselves “libertarians.” They are global fascists and find the constitution and National borders “conservative” (extremist). The big internet Corps. have aided and abetted NSA as best they can. They could care less about American freedom’s ideology and culture. Amoral materialism and the ideology of global liberalism is their “libertarianism.” They love a big government as long as they have their paws in the US Treasury.

“Jeff Bezos now owns the place. And he calls himself a libertarian. Things are about to get very interesting.”

Indeed. I wonder if all of the liberals that have infested Slate for the past 17 years will now crawl away from the woodwork and find a new home. If so, a thorough fumigation is in order. Some of them will probably embrace the new Libertarian stance, but most have been die-hard leftists and can’t change now.

“Might want to access it soon as it will probably disappear.”

With stuff like that, if I don’t have time to read it now, I just print it to .pdf file format and save it for later. I have hundreds of articles saved that way that are probably no longer on the net and have been scrubbed. I wish there was a central website where we could post (and share) articles like that. A clearinghouse of sensitive info that the Obama machine will no doubt erase from existence (or try to).

“Everyone should really read 1984.”
I’m sure every one in D.C. did. They took it as a blueprint.

Obama administration had restrictions on NSA reversed in 2011
The Washington Post ^ | Ellen Nakashima

Posted on Sunday, September 08, 2013 6:59:34 AM by originalbuckeye

The Obama administration secretly won permission from a surveillance court in 2011 to reverse restrictions on the National Security Agency’s use of intercepted phone calls and e-mails, permitting the agency to search deliberately for Americans’ communications in its massive databases, according to interviews with government officials and recently declassified material.

In addition, the court extended the length of time that the NSA is allowed to retain intercepted U.S. communications from five years to six years — and more under special circumstances, according to the documents, which include a recently released 2011 opinion by U.S. District Judge John D. Bates, then chief judge of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court.
