Edward Snowden's Nightmare Is Not Coming True

Thirty days ago, the Guardian published the first details of the files leaked by Edward Snowden, revealing the bulk collection of data on phone calls by the National Security Agency. In the time since, we've learned far more about that program and the NSA's other surveillance systems. The secret court overseeing the program has cleared a path for more information about its work. Members of Congress have called for more openness. In other words: You're wrong, Politico. Change is happening.
The website is leading this morning with a story wringing its hands over the government's failure to curtail surveillance. Or, more accurately, concern-trolling Snowden's stated desire to see political change in the wake of his revelations. Concern-trolling, for those lucky enough not to know, is when a political argument is made based on insincere concern for its subject. Oh no, Politico frets. We haven't made change on privacy, just as Snowden feared!

Morning Joe has been pandering gov positions for weeks

Almost every day they will spend 5 minutes reviewing something Greenwald or Snowden said

Then spend the next 30 minutes ridiculing them, tearing down their statements without any chance of rebuttal and trying to convince the viewer why it's so important for the NSA to be able to spy and they all nod their heads and agree with each other over and over.

Pure government propaganda. No wonder MSNBC's ratings are tanking.

But by far the scariest part of all this is the ease in which the Bolivian President's plane was brought down and searched. All the countries which denied the plane entry are SUPPOSED to be sovereign. This tells me we are getting VERY close to a one-world government working behind the scenes.

Come to think of it, the countries actually might have a global shadow government in place already - that Bolivian plane would never have been taken down if they had gone through regular or even quick diplomatic channels.

So what does this mean? You tell me!

MSM owners have been pounding

MSM owners have been pounding the messenger while ignoring the message. Edward Snowden has far from failed. TV news ratings show MSM has failed.

Politico

Always devious. Never sincere. Look at all sources, makes one aware. They have an agenda, it is quite clear, to put truth aside and lie up your -ear.
