Way too much Pro-NSA propaganda and too little Con-NSA counterpoints. And without Glenn Greenwald, it just doesn't smell like they even tried to present a balanced program.


noun: high-sounding language with little meaning, used to impress people.

Did some British guy write Baer's script?

Don't promote FAUX news, unless...

... You have assurances or knowledge that Rand is live when taped, and that he gets equal time! Using excerpts strategically chosen should get no approbation from the true grassroots patriot!

Otherwise, and this is the most likely scenario, you are going to be promoting FAUX news site and ratings, and in the process helping them spread their RC approved disinformation calculated to disavow Paul, undue the damage, and give the public the false sense that NSA is really, when ALL is said and done, their friend, their protector, their FUTURE!

If the revelations thus far spilled at such great cost to whistle-blowers have not raised the ire of the public and grassroots to a screaming pitch, then you can be sure FAUX news has no intention but to assuage what little high dudgeon still exists, and pave the way for continuation of the programs en Toto, at NSA!

There is equal reason to believe that the whole episode with Snowdon could have been trotted out as a dialectic plan to De-sensitize the masses for the future NSA's continuation and expansion! No one can now say they did not know or have occasion to object!

Every indication screams that congress for the most part either knew about most of this already, or at the least, has no real problem with it going forward, beyond the fear of public disapproval!

dialectic plan to De-sensitize the masses ...."

"There is equal reason to believe that the whole episode with Snowdon could have been trotted out as a dialectic plan to De-sensitize the masses ...."

Now that's an interesting thought. I'm not so sure it's credible Snowden was part of that "plan", as there would have been less costly ways of accomplishing that ... and, indeed, the public was well down the road to desensitization anyway and didn't even consciously know it. In the aftermath there are clearly, now, millions if not tens of millions or more who WERE dwelling in the shadowy hinterland and are now awake, outraged, and unlikely to fall back asleep into loving their tyranny. Once one goes through threshold one can't go back.

Still, you have a very good point that the police state to come now has the COMPLETE moral sanction of those who remain in thrall. Those who STILL support either the Democratic party or the Republican party are our moral enemies and their can be no "truce" with them which will hold. From that standpoint, the aftermath of the Snowden disclosures is obviously being well "managed" by TPTB.

Do you need a politician or judge to "interpret" those 28

Looks good

Brett Baer is typically a little less then pure bias most of the time. He also tends to be on the fence with your divisive issues. Should be interesting.

Line up looks fair.
