When former spy Edward Snowden revealed to the world that the federal government is spying on most Americans, most Americans were surprised and unhappy. But half of official Washington yawned before it roared. Somehow the people in the government had a pretty good idea of what government spies are doing, and they more or less approve of it but not all of them.
Politicians as diverse as Republican Speaker John Boehner and Democratic Sen. Dianne Feinstein called Snowden a traitor. So did former Vice President Dick Cheney, and President Obama said that for once Cheneys words were music to his ears. On the other hand, former Democratic Congressman Dennis Kucinich, Republican Sen. Rand Paul, my Fox News colleague Bill OReilly and I have all referred to Snowden as a hero.
What did Snowden do that has those in power screaming for his scalp and those generally who fear the loss of liberty, including millions of young people, grateful for his courage?
Feinstein and co. haven’t been able to recognize the multitude of traitors who have surfaced in the last five and half years. How can they recognize one now?
Boehner and Feinstein aren’t really that diverse.
As far as I am concerned elected officials like DiFi that line their pockets at the expense of those they were elected to represent are TRAITORS of a higher magnitude.
I love the judge but he is wrong on this one point.
Jesus was not crucified simply because he was rejected by those He was sent to save. Some did. Many did not reject Him. He knew full well he was going to die this way and did nothing to stop it. He died for us.
