Snowden journalist set to make ‘biggest’ disclosure yet (Names of Americans Being Spied Upon)
New York Post ^ | May 26, 2014 | Danika Fears

Posted on 05/28/2014 10:24:05 AM PDT by PJ-Comix

Glenn Greenwald, the journalist who helped NSA leaker Edward Snowden expose state secrets to the world, is set to make his “biggest” disclosure yet — the names of Americans the government spied on, he told The Sunday Times.

Greenwald added that Snowden’s legacy will be “shaped in large part” by this “finishing piece,” which is based on information obtained in the nearly 2 million documents the former NSA contractor secretly stole from the government.

I wonder how many on the list will be conservatives who have been targeted simply for being conservatives. We already know the IRS used this targeting criteria.

I hope he sends a Navy Seal team in who says FU to 0 among themselves and ends up watching TV like 0 did during Benghazi then comes back and says nope we couldn’t find him. Sorry. You might send Hillary, Kerry, Reid, Pelosi and Jarret over to do diplomatic negotiations on a heli though. Then turn around and notify Putin of their coordinates....poetic justice...: )

Great Brittan has a program ‘eschoir’ (if I recall correctly) for years now, (at least 17 or 19) that looked for the use of certain words on the Internet, and brought these posts up for notice, Easy to do I guess.

We have reached a stage of development, where it is possible for us to be examined whether by phone, TV, inter net, etc, everything except letters in all our forms of communications. An impossible task, monitoring all peoples. Where are we going next? Our daily life is seldom off the radar. Government is not the answer.

God is the direction of our lives and purpose. Seek God. Know His scriptures and instructions. Love our neighbor and our fellow man. ..."If God be for us who can be against us?" Let us love God, follow His commandments, and trust in His Word, in Jesus name, amen.

Don’t count on Boobus Americanus being too ouraged. There are quite a few on this site who wod be just as happy to see Snowden and Greenwald summarily executed for telling us how our rights have been wholesale violated.

No, the American people will not wake up. Even Les Moonves and the rest of the communist apparatchiks will not wake up. This is playing out just like it did in Solzhenitsyn’s “Gulag Archipelago.”

The American people have been stampeded from one manufactured faux crisis to the next, all the while they have seen the public beat down of decent people who had the temerity to express the same opinions they hold themselves. And the American people are worn down and worn out. A quote from a good friend in my Sunday School class when discussing these issues: “I’m just tired of it all.” I think she spoke for far too many Americans. They have quit fighting the culture war, because the real consequences haven’t hit home yet. And they don’t want to get publicly humiliated.

And as for the communist apparatchiks in the media/entertainment propaganda complex? They will be just like Kamenev, Zinoviev, Bukharin, Tukachevsky and millions of others. Those men knew they were being spied upon. But they thought they were somehow exempt; they were with the “in crowd.” And when the knock on the door came at 2:00 a.m., they thought it was “all a big mistake.” They wrote their letters to the Great Stalin asking that he intervene, and even to the point of being dragged to the three man firing squad in the basement of the Lubyanka, they thought “if only Stalin knew....”

Snowden will release his names. People here will call him a traitor, others will be outraged at the NSA, and some will have a sense of Schadenfreude.

And nothing will change.

My brother is a retired electonics engineer. He told me (early 90’s) that the government was listening to phone calls in the late 70’s for keywords and pulling recording the conversations for analysis. He worked on the programs. He said there was some really scary stuff (much worse) that he was afraid to talk about. I consider Snowden a hero for spreading sunshine on all of this overreach.

He should save his ink and paper by disclosing those NOT spied upon.

The resulting “list” would be a single blank sheet of paper

If they take photos of all my mother’s mail there would be no bandwidth left in the universe to take photos of anyone else’s mail.

I’m serious. I’m expecting her mail carrier to start bringing her mail by mule train. She doesn’t have a mail box, she has a huge USPS plastic bin on the front porch for the mail to go in.

It would be nice to think that an impeachment might come out of the biggest rape of the bill of rights to date. But thanks to a pack of morons who decided to impeach slick over lying about a blowjob instead of the Chinese getting a pack of US rocket and weapons technology, no president will ever face impeachment again.

If this was a list from the paranoid lefties of the FBI, I would agree with you. They're nuts over there... But hopefully the NSA is attempting to protect the country. That's my prayer... We'll know soon - for the sake of the country, I hope I'm right.

The Conservatives on the list will be a meaningless part of this, though. What will be the bombshell is when every government official is on it. If two or three people at NSA, who nobody has even heard of, own the Supreme Court, Congress, the President and all of his staff, all the generals, and most of the media, we are practically, a stealth dictatorship with a illusion of democracy. There is no elected official, unless he does what the secret cabal wants. If he doesn’t, they just Petraeus him, and put in somebody who will do their bidding.

It is funny, but we may end up not sure if Russia is all that more controlled a form of government than we are. If the above article was even half true, this could be the biggest revelation in the history of America.

You may have guessed from my earlier post that I’m a bit cynical and gloomy about the prospects for the future. It’s my belief that America, and much of the world has become what the Soviet Union was during the 1970s. Or like the Roman Republic in its later days.

There is one political ruling class. There may be different “parties” but they are window-shop dressing for the veneer of democracy. The political ruling class extends to the mass media, which is their propaganda arm. Anyone can enter the ruling class, but it is not easy to do so. It also helps to be from a ruling class family.

Within that ruling class, there are struggles for power and jockeying for position. There are internal checks and balances. As for the Rule of Law, the Law is for the peasants but not for the ruling class. But the ruling class has its rules. And while they can bend the laws, they can’t mess with the rules. Anyone cast out of the ruling class has broken one or more of it’s unwritten rules.

And the democracy or republic is just a political charade to make the masses think they have influence. Anything that resembles a popular movement that threatens the ruling class is dealt with in the following ways:

1. The public participants (the masses) are targeted for oppression by the legal and bureaucratic organs of the state;

2. The public participants are publicly vilified by the propaganda organs of the state;

3. Leaders of the popular movement are screened for admission to the ruling class, and bought off, or they are destroyed.

Being screened and bought off is one of the few ways for an outsider to break in. However, once a member of the club, they are expected to follow the rules. Most do; why not? It’s not a bad gig if you can swing it.
