Tonight I am joined by Sibel Edmonds from Boiling Frogs Post to discuss the Snowden/Greenwald issue, and whether a conflict of interest regarding Mr. Greenwald's new venture; will we ever get to see all of the documents Mr. Snowden gave to Mr. Greenwald, the 60 Minutes STATE propaganda piece and more.
Peace, Love, or rEVOLution!
Daniel Drezner has a fairly incredible short blog post over at Foreign Policy magazine about his experience visiting the NSA as the organization is seeking to ramp up its PR campaign about how it's not actually evil. We've already covered the 60 Minutes debacle, but in many ways this piece is just as enlightening, as he notes just how incredibly tone deaf NSA officials appear to be -- unable to understand why people are upset about what they're doing.
If you claim to love liberty continue to feed the beast by keeping your money in too big to fail bank accounts, you are no friend of liberty.
Time for a national movement to get out of the corrupt banks, try a credit union instead.
I have closed mine how about you? Or is it all just talk?
The Big Story - Snowden: NSA's Indiscriminate Spying 'COLLAPSING'
By BRADLEY BROOKS

RIO DE JANEIRO (AP) — National Security Agency leaker Edward Snowden wrote in a lengthy "open letter to the people of Brazil" that he's been inspired by the global debate ignited by his release of thousands of National Security Agency documents, and that the NSA's culture of indiscriminate global espionage "is collapsing."
From the article:
"Shooting kittens right in front of children is totally fine as long as you are in the North Ridgeville Police Department. According to the NRPD in Ohio, the police did nothing wrong when they discharged their weapons a few feet away from children in order to euthanize 5 kittens.
In what world would this be considered acceptable? Have police become so far detached from reality that firing a weapon several feet from children seems like an okay idea, not to mention the killing of the kittens?"

Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) is threatening to keep the Senate in session by dragging out Janet Yellen’s confirmation as head of the Federal Reserve.
The noted central bank critic said Tuesday that he was prepared to force the Senate to exhaust the full 30 hours of debate on Yellen’s nomination if he did not receive a vote on his legislation to fully audit the Fed. His push comes as senators are trying to wrap up their work for the year.
There is a sheriff in Michigan arming and swearing in civilians in order to fight the Feds. This is where America is heading.

Adam Kokesh and Stefan Molyneux debate the best way to advance the cause of freedom, increase human liberty and end the tyranny of the state. Political Action, Civil Disobedience, Peaceful Parenting or something else: What is the best method?
I really hope Peter runs for the Senate again and joins Rand.
NEW YORK – The attorney who won a high-profile federal court fight Monday with the National Security Agency over its invasive telephone call spy program says he was put under surveillance – and more – by the agency when he filed the case.
Larry Klayman, a WND commentary contributor and founder of Judicial Watch and, more recently, FreedomWatch, told WND that once his allegations that the federal government was violating the Constitution with its “watch-every-call” strategy hit the courts, he noticed problems with his email.
- Gingrich fully supports the Patriot Act which violates the 4th Amendment by allowing unwarranted search and seizure and illegal secret surveillance of U.S. citizens. Gingrich stated that he would further strengthen it.
- Gingrich fully endorsed the "We Can Solve It" global warming ad campaign sponsored by former Vice President Al Gore's Alliance for Climate Protection. Nancy Pelosi and Newt Gingrich, who made the video ad together, don't always see eye to eye, but they do agree that on the issue of climate change, we must take action now. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qi6n_-wB154
The NSA and Its Partners Are Getting Hit In Their Ability to Hire and Keep Personnel
….and in their Pocketbooks
December 17, 2013
It’s not only judges, presidents and congress members who are slamming the NSA.
It’s not only foreign leaders – or Internet standards institutions – who are distancing themselves from the U.S. due to mass surveillance.
The NSA and it’s partners are also getting hit where it hurts … in their ability to hire and keep personnel, and in the pocketbook:
