The NSA has a “brand new” technology that enables one billion cell phone calls a day to be redirected into its data hoards and stored, according to the Guardian’s Glenn Greenwald, who said that a new leak of Snowden's documents was ‘coming soon.’

Calling it part of a “globalized system to destroy all privacy,” and the enduring creation of a climate of fear, Greenwald outlined the capabilities of the NSA to store every single call while having “the capability to listen to them at any time,” while speaking via Skype to the Socialism Conference in Chicago, on Friday.

I am not an American.

I am not coming up with hints and innuendo, just information that gives people something to think about, so that people can make an informed decision about whether person A or B is a hero or a traitor, a whistle blower or shill. Terrorist or freedom fighter. Both sides of the one coin.
If things are not looked at from ALL angles, how can one see the whole picture? The fact that the CEO of Salon.com, the "trumpet" for Snowden, was an executive at the start up of a large company that lied about it's
knowledge of spying, needs to be looked into. Same as the Boston Bombers Uncle...he had ties to people...it was looked into.
I have the benefit of age and history behind me, so I see things a little differentially (cynically)than you.I also am not American so do not have to come to terms with the fact that the greatest nation on earth is deeply corrupt for powerful peoples own ends. Just like every powerful nation before it, from the Greeks to the British Empire.
If people can conspire to fly planes into skyscrapers, can they not conspire to use a whistle blower for their own ends?

Are you Russian? Do you work

Are you Russian? Do you work for Russia Today? Are you a socialist?

I am deeply suspicious of RT.

From previous comments you can see that I am not Russian, do not trust RT, thought Julian Assange was a hero, but now am not so sure.
You will know that I have a deep admiration for Dr Paul, and respect for Rand. You will also know that I loath Hilary Clinton, speak out about the UN, the CIA and the deep corruption within your Government. In my own country I fight against UN Agenda 21 and ICLEI at local council level.
I am not a spy, troll or disinformation person....just someone who wants my children and grand children to grow up with freedoms and fairness, not slavery and debt. What is wrong with that? The spying scandal that has broken over the world is not new to many people with a smidgen of history, that is why I will put no personal details over the internet except my name. If I am going to write something on the Daily Paul, I will put my name to it. But at the same time I trust nothing that can think for itself if I can't "see" where it keeps it brain.

Greenwald has a great sense of humor,....

in addition to being a great reporter. Thanks for posting.

Agreed

Shame

Scahill and Greenwald should be ashamed of themselves for speaking at this conference.

I am not a socialist. I am

I am not a socialist. I am aware that when you vote for Big Mother you will get Big Brother. A government that provides you with food, education, housing, and health care is a government that can take those things away if you cross it and has you by the balls. But Ron Paul was always willing to cross the aisle and make common cause with leftists when it was warranted -- on such things as the wars and the Bill of Rights. So while the socialists promote all sorts of foolish things we should be willing to make common cause with them when they oppose the encroaching police state.

Yes, what a shame!

Speaking to fellow humans! He should be ashamed!

You, Clint, unfortunately, have a deficiency of love in your heart. But don't worry. Such conditions can be remedied, but they must start with the one afflicted, and must begin with awareness.

I wish you all the best in your efforts to escape the prison that holds you.

I'll tell you this, listening to the enthusiam of that crowd of fellow humans. I love their energy! It is certainly better energy than any I've heard at any GOP event!

Good luck Clint.

All art is only done by the individual. The individual is all you ever have, and all schools only serve to classify their members as failures. E.H.

Geez Mike

That's a little harsh, don't ya think.

When they speak at this conference, they lend their prestige and notoriety to the socialist movement. They're not there to convert these people to individualism. They ARE socialists. Look at what socialism has done to this country; concentrating more and more power in the hands of D.C. and separating everyone into groups which facilities the fed's divide-and-conquer strategy.

I can't believe my comment elicited such a response.

I thought Socialism is what we're fighting against.

Shame On You!

Ever listen to Ron Paul on the Alex Jones show?

The message is independent of the forum where it is delivered.

This is some kind of

This is some kind of Orwellian nightmare. Please tell me I'm dreaming?

YOU

are not the one we need to wake up.
