PRISM & NSA Whistleblower Revealed: Edward Snowden, to Prevent a Turnkey Tyranny




The individual responsible for one of the most significant leaks in US political history is Edward Snowden, a 29-year-old former technical assistant for the CIA and current employee of the defence contractor Booz Allen Hamilton. Snowden has been working at the National Security Agency for the last four years as an employee of various outside contractors, including Booz Allen and Dell.

The Guardian, after several days of interviews, is revealing his identity at his request. From the moment he decided to disclose numerous top-secret documents to the public, he was determined not to opt for the protection of anonymity. "I have no intention of hiding who I am because I know I have done nothing wrong," he said.

Snowden will go down in history as one of America's most consequential whistleblowers, alongside Daniel Ellsberg and Bradley Manning. He is responsible for handing over material from one of the world's most secretive organisations – the NSA.

Snowden's whistleblowing gives us a chance to roll back what is tantamount to an 'executive coup' against the US Constitution

I'm not sure how this one

I'm not sure how this one slipped by. I've never heard of this nor seen it on the DP.

Standing ovation

May every freedom-loving American stand and applaud Mr. Snowden.
Please, take a bow Mr. Snowden.

I think you could start a kickstarter.com project

It's free, and would get a lot of exposure. If you do so, I will donate to it. There, we're both on the next list!

I love you. I'm sorry. Please forgive me. Thank you.

Edward Snowden is Not Guilty under Marbury v. Madison

"The question, whether an act repugnant to the Constitution can become the law of the land, is a question deeply interesting to the United States; but, happily, not of an intricacy proportioned to its interest. It seems only necessary to recognize certain principles, supposed to have been long and well established, to decide it."

"The government of the United States is of the latter description. The powers of the legislature are defined and limited; and that those limits may not be mistaken, or forgotten, the Constitution is written. To what purpose are powers limited, and to what purpose is that limitation committed to writing, if these limits may, at any time, be passed by those intended to be restrained? The distinction between a government with limited and unlimited powers is abolished if those limits do not confine the persons on whom they are imposed, and if acts prohibited and acts allowed are of equal obligation. It is a proposition too plain to be contested, that the Constitution controls any legislative act repugnant to it; or, that the legislature may alter the Constitution by an ordinary act."

"Certainly all those who have framed written constitutions contemplate them as forming the fundamental and paramount law of the nation, and consequently, the theory of every such government must be, that an act of the legislature, repugnant to the constitution, is void."

"Thus, the particular phraseology of the Constitution of the United States confirms and strengthens the principle, supposed to be essential to all written constitutions, that a law repugnant to the Constitution is void; and that courts, as well as other departments, are bound by that instrument."


It is good to see you coming around.

One of my efforts is explaining to ordinary people what Marbury v. Madison is.

There is recourse for those who value Liberty, once they understand.

Good post, Mr. Wiseguy ;-)

"What if the American people learn the truth" - Ron Paul

The supporters of big brother

The supporters of big brother police state are screaming it's about "Keeping Americans Safe". That begs the question; How "Safe" are we now? The answer is somewhere between 0% and 100%. With NSA, CIA, FBI, ATF, TSA, DHS Fusion Centers and InfraGuard, Pentagon, Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines, and all the other dozens of alphabet soup agencies, one could say we're 97% safe with 100% big brother compliance.

Before 9/11 and all the trillions spent on the "War on Terror", one could say we were 95% safe. I'd rather go back to being 95% safe and save trillions of taxpayer dollars, while retaining all my Constitutional Rights.

"Terror" is an intangible invisible abstract concept of the imagination.

Every extravagant act of murder and mayhem you can think of can be considered terrorism, only if manifested in a physical act. These incidents that terrorize people instill extreme feelings of fear in individuals affected. If thoughts of "Terrorist Tactics" are not manifested in a physical act, it's sometimes considered just a thought crime, which is not a crime.

Flying Killer Drone Robots are by definition, contraptions of terror.

Have they already won

If all these intrusions on our freedoms are to keep us safe then have the "Terrorist" already won. If anybody truly believes the bs that they hate us for our freedoms then how can they still hate us.

Anything in the MSM

about this yet?

Lots. Daniel Ellsberg was

Lots. Daniel Ellsberg was great on CNN in the last hour. Someone will get the video and it'll be on the front page of DP shortly.

May others follow his example...

...like a FLOOD and, together, we will save our Republic!

He is a Hero!

Instead of investigating and defunding this illegal encroachmnet of our fourth amendment, the DOJ is seeking criminal charges against a whistleblower.

He is in fear for his life. And, rightfully so. If they extradite him he will get the Bradley Manning treatment and worse.

I'm sure he has an insurance

I'm sure he has an insurance file and will release it if they harm a hair on his head.

Hero of the People.

WAY better idea! Thanks!

I think this is a appropriate place for this

It's difficult to think of anyone recently more heroic.
