MSNBC: Glenn Greenwald Comments on the Progress and the Hypocrisy 7-17-13

Q: He [Snowden] is seeking refuge in Countries with abysmal human rights records... and he even went so far as to say he wanted to congratulate the leaders of Venezuela, Ecuador, Bolivia and Russia for standing up on this issue and being protectors of human rights... Given their records domestically... is that not hypocritical?

Wow! I don't think that's

Wow! I don't think that's the answer she expected. That was like watching Bugs Bunny shove a carrot into Elmer Fudd's shotgun and it blowing up in his face.

Given the history

Of the Rothschild central bank counterfieters of debt and funders of war. We must not look at this in the context of human rights. None of the puppet governments have concerns about individual humans.

So I conclude that the above named places where governments have offered to take him have another agenda.

Perhaps as usual just another epesode in the evil puppet show.



Right on the money. RP couldn't have said it better.

Who ever is the driving force

behind the Snowden affair, is very slick. Still working out whether this is a CIA job, or a seismic shift in the take over and control of the worlds media.
From the poor excuse of an answer to the hypocrisy of human rights in Latin America, I would say it's CIA.

When has it ever been safe to entrust that much knowledge

and power to so few unaccountable, wealthy people? What educational standard, and/or elected-office title, makes anyone among us or them incapable of becoming tyrants?

History has taught us better; or has it? Absolute power corrupts everyone else in the world; but NOT god-fearing, college-edumacated, duly-elected americans; eh? NOT!!!

Mr. Greenwald. This is a sharp guy.

Thank you for posting, and thank you GG!!


I wonder who else on here

has pondered the possibility that certain people or groups of people, say for example ; central bankers, congress people with top secret clearance, cabinet members etc. who have access to all of this unlimited phone, email & who knows what other method of spying taking place are using or have used the information they obtain to conduct insider trading for their own profit or used intercepted information for corporate maneuvering and or stealing of corporate information to remain at the top of their respective pyramids. All under the guise of "National Security"...

Playing God

These people want to play God. They want to be the be all and end all of all information in this country. Its difficult to imagine all the various possibilities of what could be done with the data. Blackmail, insider trading, knowing how and where to prosecute and apply for search warrants, because you know where all the Easter eggs are hidden and how they got there, you name it. This program and all other federal programs (think ObamaCare) will be integrated for absolute control over everyone.

Playing? They act like they believe themselves such!

George Burns, in "Oh God", and Morgan Freeman, in "Bruce Almighty", KNEW that they were only playing God in a role for a movie. It was only a temporary, "promotion", to humorously dramatize the scripts of each movie.

These fools behave like they have arrived at that exalted status by some genuine personal merits; and NOT simply by outnumbering some other flawed candidate who was perceived as worse than themselves!

oh yeah....

this ABSOLUTELY is MORE about sophistication than the Jack Boot..
This is Industrial/Corporate espionage on steroids..
Fascism baby. MONEY and POWER thru blackmail and takeover..
they really DON'T have time for little stuff..
this is designed for the taking of Kings, Queens and Bishops..
not pawns.

Most American people don't

Most American people don't appreciate the vast federal government spying apparatus that is currently deployed for use on us without a valid lawful warrant.

damn right

Glenn Greenwald is one articulate mofo.

That's the subliminal Double-Speak talking.

Leave yours at the end of the tone.....

EEEP! All and all a good interview. Just pointing out the enigmatic.

Common Law, Founders Declared Same Virginia-Kentucky Resolutions

Absolute Rights of the Colonists 1772:

In Full: http://www.americanpatriotparty.cc/Rights_of_the_Colonists/r...

1st. Natural Rights of the Colonists as Men.--

Among the Natural Rights of the Colonists are these First. a Right to Life; Secondly to Liberty; thirdly to Property; together with the Right to support and defend them in the best manner they can--Those are evident Branches of, rather than deductions from the Duty of Self Preservation, commonly called "the first Law of Nature"--

All Men have a Right to remain in a State of Nature as long as they please: And in case of intollerable Oppression, Civil or Religious, to leave the Society they belong to, and >>>ENTER INTO ANOTHER -

When Men enter into Society, it is by voluntary consent; and they have a right to demand and insist upon the performance of such conditions, And previous limitations as form an equitable "original compact".--

Every natural Right not expressly given up or from the nature of a Social Compact necessarily ceded remains.--


Virginia Ratifying Convention 6-16-1788:

In Full: http://www.americanpatriotparty.cc/americanpatriotpartynewsl...

Common Law a Reserved Right:

George Nicholas:

"...But the"COMMON LAW"is"NOT EXCLUDED". There is"NOTHING" in "that paper"(APP Note: referring to the US Constitution being considered) to warrant the assertion...."


This same issue was discussed in two documents from our Founders James Madison and Thomas Jefferson in the

Virginia and Kentucky Resolutions 1798:
In Full: http://www.americanpatriotparty.cc/candidates

James Madison - Virginia Resolution:

"....That the General Assembly doth particularly protest against the palpable and alarming infractions of the Constitution, in the two late cases of the "Alien and Sedition Acts" passed at the last session of Congress; the first of which exercises a power "NO WHERE DELEGATED" to the federal government, and which by uniting legislative and judicial powers to those of executive, SUBVERTS THE GENERALPRINCIPLES of free government; as well as the particular organization, and positive provisions of the federal constitution; and the other of which acts, exercises in like manner, a power NOT delegated by the constitution, but on the contrary, expressly and positively forbidden by one of the amendments thereto; a power, which more than any other, ought to produce universal alarm, because it is levelled against that right of freely examining public characters and measures, and of FREE COMMUNICATION AMONG THE PEOPLE THEREON, which has ever been justly deemed, the ONLY effectual GUARDIAN of EVERY OTHER RIGHT.

That this state having by its Convention, which ratified the federal Constitution, expressly declared, that among other essential rights, "the Liberty of Conscience and of the Press CANNOT be cancelled, abridged, restrained, or modified by "ANY" authority of the "United States"," and from its extreme anxiety to guard these rights from EVERY possible attack of "sophistry or ambition", having with other states, recommended an amendment for that purpose, which amendment was, in due time, annexed to the Constitution; it would mark a reproachable inconsistency, and criminal degeneracy, if an indifference were now shewn, to the most palpable violation of one of the Rights, thus declared and secured; and to the establishment of a precedent which may be fatal to the other. ..."

Thomas Jefferson - Kentucky Resolution:

2. " Resolved, That the Constitution of the United States, having delegated to Congress a power to punish:

a.) treason,
b.) counterfeiting the securities and current coin of the United States,
c.) piracies, and felonies committed on the high seas, and
d.) offenses against the law of nations,


and it being true as a general principle, and one of the amendments to the Constitution having also declared, that "the powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, not prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people,"

therefore the act of Congress, passed on the 14th day of July, 1798, and intituled "An Act in addition to the act intituled An Act for the punishment of certain crimes against the United States," as also the act passed by them on the — day of June, 1798, intituled "An Act to punish frauds committed on the bank of the United States," (>>>> and ALL their OTHER ACTS which assume to CREATE, DEFINE, or PUNISH crimes, OTHER than THOSE so "ENUMERATED" in the Constitution,) >>> are "ALTOGETHER" "VOID", and of "NO FORCE";

and that the power to create, define, and punish such other crimes is reserved, and, of right, appertains SOLELY and EXCLUSIVELY to the respective "STATES", each within its own territory.

3. Resolved, That it is true as a general principle, and is also expressly declared by one of the amendments to the Constitutions, that "the powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, our prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people"; and that NO power over the freedom of religion, freedom of speech, or freedom of the press being delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, all lawful powers respecting the same did of right remain, and were reserved to the States or the people: that thus was manifested their determination to retain to themselves the right of judging how far the licentiousness of speech and of the press may be abridged without lessening their useful freedom, and how far those abuses which cannot be separated from their use should be tolerated, rather than the use be destroyed. And thus also they guarded against ALL abridgment by the United States of the freedom of religious opinions and exercises, and retained to themselves the right of protecting the same, as this State, by a law passed on the general demand of its citizens, had already protected them from "ALL" human restraint or interference. And that in addition to this general principle and express declaration, another and more special provision has been made by one of the amendments to the Constitution, which expressly declares, that "Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof, or abridging the freedom of speech or of the press": thereby guarding in the same sentence, and under the same words, the freedom of religion, of speech, and of the press: insomuch, that whatever violated either, throws down the sanctuary which covers the others, arid that libels, falsehood, and defamation, equally with heresy and false religion, are WITHHELD from the cognizance of federal tribunals. That, therefore, the act of Congress of the United States, passed on the 14th day of July, 1798, intituled "An Act in addition to the act intituled An Act for the punishment of certain crimes against the United States," which does abridge the freedom of the press, is "NOT LAW", but is "ALTOGETHER" "VOID", and of "NO FORCE"."


Clearly, Snowden was revealing wrongdoing by our government; This is not treason, but clear "examination of public characters" who are involving themselves in unconstitutional activities against the rights of the citizens.

These papers should be available to all and spread out upon the courts of the states and counties to be thoroughly examined;

If the Constitution, laws or rights has been breached by our government, mover to punish those involved as an example to others who might otherwise misuse their powers.

Tell the state department to eat crow.

What we have here is two Socialist governments deciding what to do with a true patriot of freedom.

thank you.

Yes, very good stuff!

Hope you don't mind if I correct one typo: "arid that libels, falsehood, and defamation," - "arid" should read "and".

Thanks so much for your great comments, they are always so educational and interesting!

Greenwald hits it home.

That answer he gave at the end was sensational!

As always, he drives home the truth, with incredible passion and conciseness.

Norfolk, VA

Time to INVESTIGATE the investigators of 9/11. PROSECUTE the prosecutors. EXPOSE the cover-up.

Snowden is a hero and towns should be having parades in

his honor. What secret documents could possibly be in the best interest of the peoples of this planet?

GG should release all documents for the world to see. Those that say otherwise just want to keep the beast with two heads alive. The red and blue beast needs to be executed. Long live the whistle-blowers.

..otherwise known as, JURY NULLIFICATION.



...Very astute of you to point out brother!

I actually just did a day of activism informing the public about "Jury Nullification" just the other week at one of the nearby courts.

I was very pleased and excited to be a part of it, and glad i participated.

Jury nullification is something the people should know more about.

Thanks for pointing that out.

Keep educating! :)

Keep your eye on the prize! - Ending legal tender laws in order for the Federal Reserve System to self-destruct is of the upmost importance.

Wow. Unleashes his answer indeed. Well played.

Can someone fill in what he

Can someone fill in what he said for a guy who can't hear crap? lol

Love It!

They're eventually going to stop interviewing GG because he's FAR too good at this stuff for the mental midgets of the MSM (and their loaded questions)
