• “As Snowden put it, “I blew the whistle on the NSA’s surveillance practices not because I believed that the United States was uniquely at fault, but because I believe that mass surveillance of innocents – the construction of enormous, state-run surveillance time machines that can turn back the clock on the most intimate details of our lives – is a threat to all people, everywhere, no matter who runs them.”

    Snowden might have read President Truman’s Op Ed on the NSA/CIA and said, Nope! I’m not gonna be a “silent german,” as he recognized this threat as an old threat to a one time “Republic,” consumed by legal namesake, The “Nuremberg Effect.”

    “I never had any thought that when I set up the CIA that it would be injected into peacetime cloak and dagger operations. Some of the complications and embarrassment I think we have experienced are in part attributable to the fact that this quiet intelligence arm of the President has been so removed from its intended role that it is being interpreted as a symbol of sinister and mysterious foreign intrigue—and a subject for cold war enemy propaganda.”

    “With all the nonsense put out by Communist propaganda about “Yankee imperialism,” “exploitive capitalism,” “war-mongering,” “monopolists,” in their name-calling assault on the West, the last thing we needed was for the CIA to be seized upon as something akin to a subverting influence in the affairs of other people.”

    Harry S. Truman 1963 November 22

    Short of a gun barrel aimed at your temple there can be no more subverting influence in the affairs of the American people than “the construction of enormous, state-run surveillance time machines that can turn back the clock on the most intimate details of our lives,” and use the metadata against us, subject to state sponsored manipulation. Seems like a very large unconstitutional “General Warrant,” ripe for abuse by power hungry addicted humans “…no matter who runs it!”

    Torture is a war crime. CIA is as Harry put it way back when, “akin to a subverting influence in the affairs of people?” Yup…

    The American People…

  • The “Nuremberg Effect,” in full view for the world to see. CIA is above the law? Indefinite detention, violation of separation of powers, spying, assassinations, general warrants along with renditions?

    Sure sounds and looks like that which Jefferson and others detested when drafting some documents? What where they called????

    That’s all scheduled to be traded for transmitting claims over a lawyer’s internet line (which might be secured and might not be, depending upon the ritizness of the law firm) while being charged a few hundred an hour for it.

    More of the “Nuremberg Effect,” or, simply lacking the funds to buy salvation via a ritzy well connected law firm. BTW, how is one to be reimbursed for transport costs? Borrow money from a bank? Go hungry for a day? Stick out the ole’ thumb at 68 years of age and ask the driver to give you a receipt after getting “rolled,” for the last $6.00 dollars you have so the driver can buy six dollars worth of gas then blow $4.80 of your six bucks out his tailpipe?

    Systemic extraction in so many splendid ways! Like colors of the rainbow and that illusory pot of gold.

  • We really need to figure out a better way to both make these problems known, without whistleblowers, and to protect people who have information. We also need an organization that will act to expose the problems and then a government agency that will prosecute.

    “…shall not be abridged?”

    The “Nuremberg Effect,” has abridged the First Amendment. The “undue influence of money,” has turned America fascist as we compromise American Republicanism lusting for the buck. Essentially systemic corruption where merit is tossed. The intent of the first Amendment was to allow a people to expose corruption fraud and waste, within government and society. The Bill of Rights also protects Americas from self incrimination, general warrants and indefinite detentions. America has “turned.” This is Drake’s warning. “The Darkside!”

    Drug addicts compromise many things for substances, Life, Liberty and family. I guess America fails to understand that you don’t have to be a junkie booting junk, a Marlboro Man inhaling poison or a drunk pounding Bacardi 151, to suffer negative effects as a substance abuser. All one needs do is pull up to a gasoline station and fill up their gas tank where for every 100.00 dollars spend on gas, you waste $80.00, “using it.”

    The Gas “needle” in the tank and the damage done, cause I can’t drive 55?

    I have a theory spocko. America is a big “substance abuser.” and that substance is called oil sold by dealers who charge higher prices all the time where we have wasted trillions of dollars, “using it.”

    It is really quite a profitable “monopoly on energy.” Considering the government’s needs for tax revenue derived from the monopoly model and completely understandable that the government would have no interest in changing the energy monopoly model. So it is protected by government abridging our constitutional rights, to protect monopoly, oil.

    “… shall no be abridged,” is a reaction to a government which protected monopolies by issuing general warrants, spying, detaining indefinitely, abusing power to undermine life and liberty.

    Whistleblower list is no different from a gun owners list. Putting the bullseye on your forehead is suicidal when dealing with aligned interests, turned fascist?

  • Fascist screws are a threat to this republic. Sure register as a whistleblower, then get whacked….

    Utter fuckingn garbage. It is clear this is again an assault on American Republicanism from within. (THE DARKSIDE)

    Next folks will be taking pledges to these “fascist entities,”
    rather than the Constitution / Bill of Rights.

    Another symptom of the “Nuremberg Effect,” usurping rights in this post 911 fascist era.

    BTW folks, this is all about protecting, oil! American are getting fucked by oil.

    Same here. We are being monitored and blocked. Free (correct) thinking people are always a threats to the PTB.

    Hence Bruno.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Giordano_Bruno

    Giordano Bruno (Latin: Iordanus Brunus Nolanus; Italian: [dʒorˈdano ˈbruno]; 1548 – February 17, 1600), born Filippo Bruno, was an Italian Dominican friar, philosopher, mathematician, poet, and astrologer.[3] He is best known for his cosmological theories, which went even further than the then-novel Copernican model: while supporting heliocentrism, Bruno also correctly proposed that the Sun was just another star moving in space, and claimed as well that the universe contained an infinite number of inhabited worlds, identified as planets orbiting other stars.[4]
    Beginning in 1593, Bruno was tried for heresy by the Roman Inquisition on charges including denial of the Trinity, denial of the divinity of Christ, denial of virginity of Mary, and denial of Transubstantiation. The Inquisition found him guilty, and in 1600 he was burned at the stake.[5]
    After his death he gained considerable fame, particularly among 19th- and early 20th-century commentators who, focusing on his astronomical beliefs, regarded him as a martyr for modern scientific ideas,[6] though scholars emphasize that Bruno was persecuted as a heretic due to his heterodox theology, particularly its pantheist elements.[7][8] Bruno’s case is still considered a landmark in the history of free thought and the future of the emerging sciences.[9][10]

    Why do we have a Bill of RIghts and Amendment????? Inquiring minds might want to know?

    Fascists suck!

  • Took a nice look backwards yesterday concerning LBJ and the Civil RIghts Act…

    Selective reflections? Never mind illegal occupation, aggressive war predicated on fraud, torture, waste, and abuse.

    Rot in fucking hell Cheney! You will have great company.

  • Looks just like the action of fascist “Brownshirts,” going after the infirm.

    Brownshirts embraced a culture of aggression enabled by Nuremberg Laws, hence the term “Nuremberg Effect,” is certainly appropriate.

    Some day folks might get it…

    Never again is happening again, here in America….

    Gross.

    2014-04-10 17:01:00View | Delete

    Slavery has to be understood through its place in American Capitalism and the idealistic, symbolic, kinds of analysis so common in America doesn’t really shed much light.

    Correct me if wrong. I believe slavery was a monopoly on energy. A monopoly enjoyed by a 1% codified by law. Where a man’s energy was not expended for the benefit of the man expending his energy, or to advance his self interest but rather for the benefit of another man capitalizing on the “ownership” of human beings hence, “energy.”

    Slavery being the ultimate form of “servitude,” to another, is inconsistent with the phrase “…all men are created equal.” The desire for a more perfect union is real. Now if we could only get out of servitude to the current energy monopoly, Wall Street and Government debt, we might get some emancipation, liberation and actual progress. However I fear the current monopoly on energy and others are no different from the old monopoly in terms of tactics employed to perpetuate, the current energy monopoly?

    The Radical Republicans look nothing like the republicans of today. RadRepugs feared slavocracy. I fear money, corptocracy and both political parties. All are threats to American Republicanism. The power of money!!

    Is Roberts, Taney reincarnated?
