Greenwald: "Pentagon Monitoring POLITICAL Activity on Websites"

"That the American PUBLIC will become 'informed'... and that's the REASON that they're so desperate and extreme in what they're trying to do to Edward Snowden... NOT because they're trying to stop him from doing anything in the future, he's already done what he's going to do.

It's because they want to make sure that the American people -- THEY are the real enemy -- don't learn what they ought to know about what it is their Government is doing in the dark... and THAT was the point he made in his [Snowden] statement."

Transcript. Lots in this interview. Pentagon comment at 11:50 mark:

DailyPaul is full of disinformation agents

They've co-opted many major forums, mostly news, political and conspiracy sites. "The Gentleperson's Guide to Forum Spies" is a good guide. IM me if you want to know the most obvious tells on here, i don't want to say in public.

It is a test

a test, just like on the japanese, to see if americans can be swayed to create a national relocation authority based on generals concerns over people like snowden? the profiling of snowden could be equally applied to the entire online community in times of emergency declaration of war.

go back and see for yourself the espionage act of 1917 was FDR's authority, same as in Snowdens case

Whether you think you can or you can't, you're right. -Henry Ford

You are correct....

.....the same authority you cite (the certain act of October 6, 1917, as amended March 9, 1933) is the very same authority used for relocation in WWII, is the very same authority that is cited that created the alphabet soup agencies (read the original text of their enacting Acts), social security, Homeltnd Scurity, the NXA (X=S), War Powers and most of the current Title 50 (50USC) powers ...

is ALSO the same authority cited by Roosevelt to do this:
http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/a/a1/Executive...

Read the first lines of the fine print in Roosevelt's executive order:
"By virtue of the authority vested in me by Section 5(b) of the Act of October 6, 1917, as amended by Section 2 of the Act of March 9, 1933 entitled.....
in which amendatory Act Congress declared that a serious emergency exists....."

That Act of 1917 is the Trading with the Enemy Act. The 1933 amendment removed the words "enemy aliens" from Section 5(b) of that act making the authority applicable to all people anywhere in the world, including US citizens, thereby quite literally making US citizens and all people in the world enemies of Washington, DC unless determined to be otherwise by the President.

Thankyou for the update

Thankyou for the update goldenequity, on this ongoing "saga"

And not just for this post, ive noticed a few posts ive liked with your screen name attached, thanks to you and others, for "carrying the baton" just that little bit futher

Helping grow our numbers...

The analysts aren't immune to the truth, either. They see what the US government has become. Why else would they be trying to chill our practice of 1st Amendment rights?

Can anyone find that Washington Post Article that Greenwald referred to?

no dwalters...

I tried... wanted to include it in the OP.
but..
just googling Pentagon/political activity
it is swarming with articles as far back as 2002.

here's...

the OBJECTIVE of NSA spying

is to target their political enemies and anybody else they decide NOT to like.

The REASON they can't go after us is because WE ARE NOT CRIMINALS, and we certainly are NOT TERRORISTS! End of story!

And, the REASON that they want unfettered access to unlimited private information is BECAUSE THEY WOULD NEVER BE ABLE....TO GET A WARRANT from a Judge TO SPY ON US!! NEVER, NADA, NEVER.

Duh...that's what we need to tell our friends. And, while you're at it, tell them that your friend worked for Ma Bell, and the FEDS, FBI, CIA, Law Enforcement, take your pick, ALWAYS had to have a "warrant".

I hope they

Will up vote my posts and replies.

thats fine...

We are not the enemy. This website staunchly defends the rights protected by our Constitution.

I will never commit violence for political change because I believe peace trumps war. The power of persuasion is greater than the power of force.

I love America.

'Peace is a powerful message.' Ron Paul

What you fail to understand is that since March 3, 1933, the

government located in the District of Columbia, has determined by an amendement to the Trading With the Enemy Act of 1917, that YOU and ME, and EVERY American ARE the enemy.

It matters not that we really aren't enemies of our own country. They consider us enemies of their abstracted selves. They can't separate themselves from the structure of government. They do seperate us from our own country thinking the USA is somehow NOT composed of the people who live in it. And they do separate themselves and government from the constitution, thinking their power exists independent of that document.

In short, they are mere thugs who rule by force, not by law, for they disavow the law as a source of their power, which leaves only force as the source.
