Why Did Ted Cruz Flip-Flop on Edward Snowden?

I have felt that Ted Cruz has been shifting his positions lately but I didn’t have concrete details about it until I saw Ben Swan’s video. Please watch it if you have time: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3VlL33JBb0s Swan is absolutely correct about Edward Snowden’s role in legislation. Snowden empowered Congress to deal (however weakly) with NSA surveillance because, until he blew the whistle, Congress was kept ignorant of it. Edward Snowden is a hero and Ted Cruz’s earlier statements Read more […]

Homeland Security Refuses to Review Social Media of People Trying to Immigrate

The other day I warned people about sharing things like “chicken pox parties” on social media where someone who disapproves of their parenting could report them for child abuse. Ironically, Homeland Security doesn’t bother when they are allegedly vetting potential immigrants. From The Hill: “Immigration officials prohibited from looking at visa applicants’ social media.” Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson decided against ending a secret U.S. policy that prohibits immigration officials from Read more […]

Could France Give Edward Snowden Asylum because NSA Spied on Them?

Both the French media and a French politician have suggested granting Edward Snowden asylum in the wake of WikiLeaks revelations about NSA spying. When I posted about the WikiLeaks report that the NSA spied on French presidents, I didn’t think the rage of the French would mean too much. But now I’m wondering. According to the Intercept, French Justice Minister Christiane Taubira thinks National Security Agency whistleblower Edward Snowden and WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange might be Read more […]

Obama Administration Still Ignores Petition to Pardon Edward Snowden

The petition to pardon Edward Snowden is being ignored for a reason. They want to teach you your place. People might think that the fact that people continue to sign the petition for the President to pardon Edward Snowden and the White House ignores this petition is embarrassing to the Administration. In my opinion, that is a superficial interpretation of what is going on when the White House intentionally ignores a petition and despises the promise it made to respond to such petitions. I think Read more […]

NSA Strategy: Infiltrate Phone App Stores to Spy on Phone Users

Edward Snowden released new documents that allegedly show the NSA was planning on hijacking app stores in order to get spyware into phones. Edward Snowden is still releasing information! In this case, he has shown how the NSA was hoping to infiltrate Android phones. From The Week: “NSA planned to hijack app stores to spy on users.” On the heels of Sen. Rand Paul’s 10-hour semi-filibuster to protest the Patriot Act and National Security Agency (NSA) mass surveillance, The Intercept Read more […]

CIA Veteran: Be Scared of Monsters We Made to Deal with Monsters We Promised to Protect You From, which We Made

A CIA veteran is pushing for Americans to be scared of terrorists so that we’ll endorse the same war on terror that financed and recruited those terrorists. First, we go into Aghanistan and restore its opium production (totally unintentionally I’m sure) and never find bin Laden. Next, we invade Iraq on the basis of false claims about weapons of mass destruction and somehow, as part of the war on terror, decimating the country and making it a place where terrorists thrive—terrorists that Read more […]

Edward Snowden Wins Oscar, Loses Country

Edward Snowden was recently recognized for his heroic Patriotism again as Citizenfour. The film, chronicling the events surrounding his heroic and historic revelation of U.S. government wrongdoing, received critical acclaim including an Oscar.  As you may recall, Snowden made public the unconstitutional, unlawful, and criminal behavior of the National Security Agency. Currently living under sanctuary in Russia, Snowden said, “My hope is that this award will encourage more people to see Read more […]

David Cameron Threatening to Ban the Guardian Reporting

Guardian reporting on revelations from Edward Snowden is prompting threats of censorship. Mike Masnick writes at TechDirt: “David Cameron Working To Stop UK Press From Publishing Anything More From Snowden Leaks.” It looks like Glenn Greenwald picked the right time to leave the UK’s The Guardian newspaper. Last week, we noted that David Cameron was pushing for an investigation into the paper for publishing stories based on Ed Snowden’s leaks, and now Cameron is going even further in Read more […]

New Leaker Behind Revelation of Expanded Definition of Terrorist

A new leaker after Edward Snowden? Should we declare him a traitor? I’d love some reader feedback about this one. You may remember back on July 24 that I posted about “The Definition of Terrorist Expanding Under Barack Obama.” The Obama Administration has been adding to the database of terrorists using standards that are not officially secret and yet are kept secret. This story originally came from the Intercept. Yesterday they published a related story: Nearly half of the people on the Read more […]

Edward Snowden Empowered Congress to Deal with the NSA

I’m not saying Congress is doing a great job, but they would still be doing nothing if Edward Snowden hadn’t decided to blow the whistle. This interesting piece by NPR (“The Challenge Of Keeping Tabs On The NSA’s Secretive Work.”) contains an amazing admission about how Snowden empowered Congress: Again and again, the leadership of the intelligence community has said one thing in public and done quite another in private,” laments Ron Wyden, an Oregon Democrat who’s also on the Senate intelligence Read more […]

The Fearful Master is Here!

Barack Obama claimed that his would be the “most transparent” Administration in all of history. Broken hard drives, official gag orders, targeted assassinations of the innocent, and countless documented lies later, somehow I’m having trouble seeing any reflection of that claim in reality. Does this sound like “transparency” to you: The Obama administration has charged more people (six) under the Espionage Act for the alleged mishandling of classified information than all past presidencies combined Read more […]

Edward Snowden Obeyed the Word of God AND The Constitution

I’ve been in a lot of airports lately and airports are hard on me. Nowadays, airports seem to be places where we get to see a preview of the latest loss of American liberty and the purposeful degradation of a once vibrant and decent culture. Because airports are a natural checkpoint through which people must pass to exercise their God-given and constitutionally protected right to travel, the police state uses them to try out various methodologies by which Americans can be herded, abused, Read more […]
