    The Hill ^ | 4/6/15 | David McCabe
    Former National Security Agency contractor Edward Snowden got into a heated exchange with comedian and late night host John Oliver over the ramifications of his wide-ranging leaks about U.S. surveillance apparatus during an interview that aired Sunday night. “How many of those documents have you actually read?” Oliver asked Snowden, during an interview on his show, "Last Week Tonight." “I’ve evaluated all of the documents that are in the archive,” Snowden replied. “You’ve read every single one?” Oliver asked. “Well, I do understand what I’ve turned over," Snowden said. "There’s a difference between understanding what’s in the documents and reading...
  • Kerry says Snowden engaging in Kerry-Like Betrayal - [Vietnam War] - Video Montage

    05/29/2014 1:13:24 PM PDT · by Frankusa · 5 replies
    During a round of morning interviews with several of the major television networks on Wednesday, Secretary of State John Kerry accused NSA [National Security Agency] leaker Edward Snowden of engaging in the same kind of betrayal and traitorous activities that Kerry once participated in. When Kerry returned from the Vietnam War in the early 70's, he accused his fellow American soldiers of committing war crimes. Kerry's accusations provoked the ire of countless Vietnam War vets who said that not only was Kerry falsely maligning them, but that he was guilty of betrayal and that he was harming American POW's in...

    Catholic World News reports: "A former chancellor of the Manchester, New Hampshire diocese, who last year resigned from his post as president of the St. Luke Institute, has been sentenced to a 4-year prison term after pleading guilty to theft charges. Msgr. Edward Arsenault admitted to stealing funds from the Manchester diocese, from the estate of a fellow priest, and from a hospital where he had served on the board. Under a plea-bargaining agreement he will serve 4 years in a New Hampshire prison. As chancellor of the New Hampshire diocese, Msgr. Arsenault was the top aid to Bishop John...

    It seems that nothing is ever as it seems. It may be that Edward Snowden is what he seems to be — an Obama-supporter who, despite barely gaining a GED, managed to work his way into sensitive technical positions at the CIA, NSA and private contractors, and then became disillusioned that abuse of individual privacy he witnessed under the Bush administration was not cured and if anything worsened under Obama, and who, despite four years of Obama-rule in which to leak embarrassing documents, waited until late May 2013 in which to take and then dump on Glenn Greenwald a treasure...

A: "The NSA has built an infrastructure that allows it to intercept almost everything. With this capability, the vast majority of human communications are automatically ingested without targeting. If I wanted to see your emails or your wife's phone, all I have to do is use intercepts. I can get your emails, passwords, phone records, credit cards.

    Afternoons were Bertie’s favourite time for adultery. While husbands were out at work, the Prince sallied forth to pay calls on their wives, lingering for up to 90 minutes. Servants were instructed that no one else should be admitted into the drawing room. Then Bertie would make an abrupt lunge, followed by a kiss smelling of tobacco and a hasty grope. With his favourites, he patiently negotiated the barriers of crinolines and stays to achieve his ultimate desire. Few turned him down: within his social set, it was almost impossible for a woman to resist advances from the Prince of...

    Perhaps no Prince of Wales in history has been less trusted — or more spied upon — than the boy everyone knew as Bertie. When he attended a military summer camp, at age 19, the future King Edward VII was surrounded by minders: two stern Grenadier officers, a colonel and a general. He even had to share a general’s quarters. Happily, however, they had not thought to lock Bertie’s bedroom window. So, one night, the heir to the throne wriggled out, made a beeline for the camp prostitute — one Nellie Clifden — and triumphantly lost his virginity.

    Our former NR colleague, Joe Sobran, passed away today after a long battle with a variety of ailments. He was relatively young, just 64, and while physically beaten at the end, he also departed spiritually triumphant.   Surely, in short order, there will be ample reflection — much of it critical — on the hyper-talented, hyper-controversial writer. There will be a recounting of his history at NR, the break, the following years, and Joe’s soured relationship with WFB (happily, they rekindled their friendship before Bill passed away). Good, let’s discuss all that, and more. But later. Right now, let us,...

    Among the bordellos of Victorian Paris, Le Chabanais was the most exquisite, and the most lavish. Over the years this ‘maison de tolerance’ — the word ‘brothel’ was considered too tawdry — saw visitors as illustrious as Humphrey Bogart, Mae West and Cary Grant. But in the 1880s, one of its principal clients was the future King Edward VII, then known to everyone as ‘Bertie’, the playboy Prince of Wales. Each of the establishment’s 30 rooms had its own theme, such as Moorish, Louis XIV and ancient Roman — but Bertie’s favourite was the Hindu room.

    The royal princes plodded slowly and sadly behind the coffin of their father, George V, as it was hauled through the streets of London to lie in state in Westminster Hall. In the silent crowd, Bloomsbury artist Vanessa Bell looked on the gun carriage draped with the royal standard and surmounted by the Imperial Crown and thought it 'unexpectedly lovely'. But then she caught sight of the new King, Edward VIII. What struck her was not just that he looked utterly miserable and very small, but that he was 'disreputable, patchy and debauched'. She was not impressed.

    MELBOURNE (Reuters) - Australian police were embarrassed Thursday after having to discipline an officer assigned to guard Prince Edward for taking unauthorized photographs of the British visitor's hotel suite. Police said an officer assigned to a security detail for dignitaries at the Commonwealth Games had been seen during a routine security sweep taking photographs of the suite the prince will occupy until Monday. The photographs were confiscated and destroyed. "The member involved was stood down from Games duties and returned to normal duties," a police spokesman said. Victoria state police commissioner Christine Nixon said another snap-happy officer had also been...

His so called activities were nothing but a betrayal of the interests of the state that he headed,” Jacob Jugashvili said in a statement.

The original burial chamber of the Anglo-Saxon king, who died in 1066, months before the invasion of William the Conqueror, was revealed by archaeologists using the latest radar technology. The existence of a number of royal tombs dating back to the 13th and 14th century was also discovered beneath the abbey, the venue for nearly all coronations since 1066....

Kennedy then turned his head like a jerk, belched and declared, "We have no choice, but to make the best we can of the disaster we’ve created in Iraq." Thusly certain Democrats began to distance themselves from the swollen red-faced man when all of a sudden he fell from...

In an interview with the Financial Times, the former US president urged Senator Kerry to fight a values-based campaign focused on health, education and crime. If he stayed on that ground, Mr Kerry could win by "quite a nice margin". < clip >

In one of the many stratagems Democrats have developed to avoid telling people what they believe, all Edwards wants to talk about is his cracker-barrel humble origins story.

The point of all this is to counter any attempt to depict him as a limousine liberal, out of touch with the values of mainstream Americans. It is an insult to our intelligence to act as...

Here is an excerpt from one story recently posted here at FR: "The media is now re-examining the story, though, and the Bush-haters are quite happy about it. As this story in today's Washington Post indicates, there is plenty of evidence Bush was not AWOL from his Guard duties. Indeed, one of the foundational pieces of the Bush-haters' lie is the failure of a colonel in Alabama to recall Bush ever being on post. Reached in Montgomery yesterday, Turnipseed stood by his...

The Internet has provided hundreds of verbal as well as pictorial eyewitness reports, as has Arab and European TV coverage, most of it unavailable or blocked or spun out of existence from the mainstream US media. That evidence provides stunning proof of what Israel's campaign has actually (has always) been about: the...
