Snowden: 'The Truth Is Coming...' and It Cannot Be Stopped

Doug Stanglin | USA TODAY | June 17, 2013

Edward Snowden takes extraordinary precautions in a live blog.

NSA leaker Edward Snowden, answering questions in a live blog on his revelations about the top-secret agency, said Monday that the U.S. government "is not going to be able to cover this up by jailing or murdering me."

"Truth is coming, and it cannot be stopped," Snowden wrote, according to The Guardian, which held the live blog on its website.

Snowden is either very very smart

or very very stupid. I hope for the former.

What really frightens me with the government's ability....

to access everything you say or write online is their ability to change what you write online in order to arrest and detain or blackmail you.

All they need do is pass a few late-night laws that gives them the ability to ...wait...NDAA, they already have.

Well this is not the case....

There is so much noise for them to follow they don't have time to change what everyone says online in order to arrest them.

But....what they do have is: Incredibly Broad Powers to Arrest and Detain Anyone for what ever Reason they can think of.

This is the real danger......

When I was writing on Zero

When I was writing on Zero Hedge, my posting was being interrupted so often, I had to copy it in notepad first just so I wouldn't have to re write it when I re-posted it.

A little trick I learned out of frustration.

Dirt on who?

Imagine a high school drop out rising through the ranks of the CIA/NSA, and now he has all the dirt on everyone, even those who set up the program.
Cheney, Bush, Obama, etc.
I hope Snowden shares all this dirt with the entire world.
So, Is this why Cheney has been in the news again.
What corruption exists in his closet?

Dick " Head " Cheney

Were it not for Cheney and his Halliburton loophole, the fracking industry would not be drilling holes in my backyard right now and pumping God knows what toxic soup into the ground in the northern panhandle of West Virginia! Only to extract it and dump it wherever they can find a spot when nobody is looking. And lest we not forget that it was this bald headed demon from Hell that "outed" CIA agent Valerie Plame because her husband Joe Wilson refused to play ball with Rumsfeld and Devil Boy when asked to verify the existence of yellow cake uranium. Cheney the Chicken-hawk, five time draft deferment dodge-master,absolutely loves war as long as somebody else's sons and daughters are fighting it! No good cowardly prick would probably make a damn good drone pilot. War just the way Cheney likes it. Served up from an easy chair, Xbox controller in hand, murdering countless innocents from afar with zero chance whatsoever he will nary get a speck of dirt in his eye.Worthless wart on the a$$ of society !

WOW SO ARTICULATE AND PERSUASIVE!

TAKE A DEEP BREATH R.E.
FIRST OFF FRACKING IS A VERY VIABLE MEANS OF REDUCING OUR DEPENDENCY ON FORIEGN OIL AND THUS THE NEED TO GO TO WAR TO ACQUIRE IT.
SECOND FRACKING DOESN'T PUMP "TOXIC SOUP" ANYWHERE, THE TOXIC SOUP YOU REFER TO IS H20. BUT WITH YOUR CHOICE OF VOCABULARY YOU AREN'T GOING TO BE WINNING ANYONE BUT LOW INTELLIGENCE VOTERS TO YOUR POINT OF VIEW ANYWAY.
ITS TOO BAD SOME IN THE LIBERTY MOVEMENT HAVE BECOME USEFUL TOOLS FOR THE ANTI-INDUSTRIALIST, ANTI-TECHNOLOGY, ANTI-CAPITALIST LEFT.
LOOK WHO'S OPPOSING FRACKING? THE VERY SAME LEFTIES WHO SHUT DOWN HYDRO-POWER, NUCLEAR ENERGY, COAL MINING, AND THE TIMBER INDUSTRY!
IN THEIR UTOPIA, THERE'S NO NEED FOR ENERGY OR HOMES AND BUILDINGS.
WE NEED MORE DRILLING; BOTH FRACKING AND OTHERWISE AND BOTH ON AND OFF SHORE, INCLUDING ANWR!
THERE YOU HAVE IT.

As a former Roughneck, I agree, but ya don't have to YELL! :-)



I punched a few holes in my day.
I never seen anything toxic.

We pumped air and water into the cavities.
The process does not require anything toxic.

When we blow out the pressure,
Air, Water, NG and rock is all that comes out.
We burn off the gas and just in case
there might be some foriegn material like pipe dope,
we collect the water in a lined pond.
The air is air and does what air does.

Out west, between the Rockies and the dessert,
where I lived, loved, laughed and roughnecked there were areas with "bad " water.
High mineral content and sometimes sulphur infused. Stinky!
Some argue fracking increases the natural occurrence.
I don't see how fracking can cause this, but it is suspect none the less.
At times wells are dug in, near and around populated areas and their aquafiers.

Now the west does have many areas that have "bad " water naturally.
Like the town of Badwater in Death Valley.
But we expect that in a place called Death Valley!
But where I lived was no where near there and folks are concerned.
As they should be.

Halliburton. Ha ha! The big evil oil company! Ha ha!
As any roughneck knows, Haliburton is an just an oilfield supply company.
Cheney is the bad guy, not anybody and everyone he's ever worked for.

Cheney

Dick Cheney sits on a throne of 100,000 Iraqi corpses, 30,000 dead servicemen, etc. His crimes are public. He is trying to hide the crimes that are still classified.

There can be no doubt, prior administrations warned about what Snowden found himself wrapped up in... the control room of the military industrial complex.

This guy wrote his responses knowing he is going to end up dead. What comes out within the next week or two is going to confirm our worst fears and rock a lot of foundations.

But that is how the truth comes out.

Best comment of the day is from that article:

"Being called a traitor by Dick Cheney is the highest honor you can give an American," Snowden responded, "and the more panicked talk we hear from people like him, (Sen. Diane) Feinstein, and (Rep. Peter( King, the better off we all are."

Only wish he had added McCain

Only wish he had added McCain and Lindsay to the cabal.

Agree!

Fox just aired the Cheney portion of the statement then had Judge Nap on who totally (again) defended Snowden.

The CIA/FBI is going CRAZY, imho...

Unfortunate for them, they hired a "genius", and they must be pulling their hair out of their heads.

BUT----even though they are trying to get their IT ELITES to find where he's at---don't you think that emotionally they might not want to find him---given the gravity of the situation they themselves find them in---knowing our own government is a REGIME now?

Wow----think of all the 8 million people or even more that he could have given information to---the FBI/CIA would NEVER be able to sift through that many people, and I think Edward Snowden knows this.

I wonder the depths of the

I wonder the depths of the info Snowden has. For example, can he confirm this yahoo article stating that the US backed the plan to launch a chemical attack on Syria and blame it on Assad? Can he prove direct propaganda given from the White House to "news" channels? What does he have on the Federal Reserve?

Hopefully, since he's an intelligent RP supporter, he knew

the importance of those items, he got it and will allow it to be released.

The "Snow" man

Cometh!

NOW OR NEVER!

Barracuda is asking the right question. It's up to each of us to answer it! This is the perfect storm-the 100th anniversary of the Federal Tax Scheme and the FED Reserve bank, and with the scandals out in the open we have the public sentiment we need. If not now when?
