NSA revelations and what it means to you

The following resource is a UK work – where is our MSM?.

The resource: NSA Files Decoded: What the revelations mean for you.

Horrific implications to what is actually going on.

We NEED TO RISE UP and put an end to the abuses of power.

Intentions

Over the last two weeks much has been written about the events that are unfolding in the Middle East. Much of what has been pushed out to the masses has been commentary and opinion not actual developments. Here is my 2 cents:

The matter of Iran and the nuclear weapon issue gets down to discerning their intention based on their actions. What they want is for everyone to believe their intention in reference to nuclear technology has no correlation to their actions and policy in actual experience in the Middle East and abroad. The lives negatively impacted in the region because of their funneling funds, weapons and soldiers in places such as Syria should be considered the exception to the rule. The same goes for their funding, weapons and strategic leadership to Hezbollah; yes, another supposed exception. The same goes for their … with Hamas and other identified terrorist groups. All of these we are to believe are the exception to their “noble” intentions. Yes, what they want the world to believe is that when it comes to nuclear technology they have no desire to develop and use it for military resources. They have no desire to make it available to Hezbollah, Hamas, etc. They have no desire or intention to acquire the “flaming sword of Islam”. We are to believe that the ayatollah – the chief ruler of Iran – has an ethical precept when it comes to nuclear weapons. (Mind you, not the tons of WMD chemical weapons in Syria’s arsenal. This they allowed to be after all who are they to infringe on a sovereign recognized nation?) No we are to disregard the current and historical practices of the leadership of the country and accept the warm smile, kind words and a promise that they have no intention to create nuclear weapons.

I have written it before but am stating it again – the current president of the USA is actively working a nuclear strategy in the Middle East that will make the demand that Israel must get rid of their nuclear weapons. The groundwork has been made over the past six to twelve months. The final calling line – If Iran is to have no nuclear weapons why is Israel allowed to have them? The political strategies the chief empty suit is trying to make into a staunch reality is one in which Israel will be positioned as a war-monger and in order to exist peacefully (wink, wink) they will need to relinquish much more land and authority to the Palestinians and scrap heap their nuclear weapons. They are being quickly corralled into a corner  (if not have been) that is of the making of Barrack Hussein Obama.

The events which are occurring and the way our current administration is engaging them is scary. We have a HORRENDOUS vacuum of leadership in our government – Wise, Ethical Leadership. And if I may take it even a step farther – Christian Leadership.

MEANWHILE,  in the USA’s MSM and the populace as a whole important matters have been relegated to the small font, less prominent headline placeholders (if even present) on websites and publications:

  • the NSA and government invasion of privacy across the globe the economy and the change of the norm for the average employee remains inferior and for many unacceptable and unsustainable
  • the mandatory national health insurance plan created by the president that is economically and practically unsustainable is uncoiling and coming to life
  • the almost complete erosion of moral principles, civility, decency and etiquette in society
  • many more things but I’m sure you get the point

Catching up

A lot of things have been going on in personal life which has kept me from posting here like I want to. I have quite a bit of articles and news in my folder as things to share which are somewhat old news now. At the bottom of the post are links to articles of interest I wanted to share and still do.

The developments in Egypt seem to be improving. Why do I write that? Because the leader of the MB has been arrested as well as many of the high level leaders. Some were captured dressed like women trying to leave the country. I’m sure others hid among children and women using them as human shields being the cowards and immoral troublemakers they are. Saudi Arabia stood up for the people of Egypt in the nick of time and got the idiots in our government and other WH cronies in Europe to shut up with their pro-MB rhetoric. Absolute idiots – all of them. Of course blood has been shed – that is what happens when you try to disarm and remove power from murderers and terrorists. I think the nation is fortunate that so far the death toll is not higher than it is.

Syria and more evidence of current chemical weapons. I doubt Assad did it or put another way – that he authorized such use. Hopefully he will give investigators full access and the whole story will come out. I suspect it will be the actions of radicals – Islamists – also known as terrorists trying to bring intervention of the world in to the arena to remove him from power so that they can hopefully fill the vacuum when the dust settles (see recent history in Egypt and Libya).

So quickly here in the USA the NSA’s intrusion in our lives with the full power and knowledge of the Democrat WH has become old news and back burnered (if even on the stove). The actions by the UK against Greenwald’s partner shows the heart of those we are suppose to actually trust. The loser president of the US pontificating a couple weeks ago of real independent investigation into the NSA practices has been revealed to be —– wait for it ——– yet another ——— L I E. It is a team of four people, one a recent acting head of the CIA and 3 former WH advisers. Meanwhile in the USA the majority of people are tuning into some show Duck Dynasty. Absolutely no wonder we got what we have in leadership positions in our governments.

Big dive coming in the US economy. Never rely on the government numbers. They are skewed – they admit they are if you are willing to read the details and fine print. To understand the state of the economy you must look at the actual numbers of the companies/manufacturers/etc. It is obvious when looking at sales and profits things are off. When welfare hand outs are at their highest levels ever – don’t “drink the kool-aid” and look around.

On a less serious note I see that a huge blunder has been made by Warner Brothers.

Egypt, Iran, Benghazi & USA

In Egypt the frustration of the past year’s experience at the hands of the MB/Islamists/Muslim Extreme-Fundamentalism has resulted in the military, the temp government and the majority of the population putting measures in place to not allow the roaches back inside the house. Of course it is no surprise to those who have been observing that the USA’s WH is on the wrong side of the equation. O continues to do all he can as quietly as possible to block or at least hinder the safety precautions the people of Egypt want put in place. We need a way to speed up time so we can get this bum out of the WH and unplugged from the government’s vast resources.

The so-called moderate (which he isn’t) Rouhani of Iran continues the hatred out of the heart in spewing poisonous words about and to Israel. He claims he was misquoted, you read it and tell me the difference. The reality is though many will only read the new headline and take it as the truth; “see, he’s not so bad…” Of course all this time has allowed the ongoing production of nuclear technology. All this time has come via the resistance of the UN and especially the WH to act with military precision.

Meanwhile more is coming out about the whole Benghazi tragedy and how the WH again is on the wrong side of the equation. Complicit in the details and now complicit in the cover-up. No exaggeration – O needs to be impeached and pressed with charges. Not just him, but Hillary and others as well. The majority of the cover-up IMO is to attempt to clear Hillary so she can have as clean as a plate as possible for a presidential election run. Heaven help us PLEASE! O’s second term is Hillary’s timetable to rest, produce, finagle, arm-twist and raise money while her and hubby Bill’s network of resources do their thing to position her as the cream of the Democratic party. O’s job? Safety and Teflon production for Hillary.

Meanwhile in the USA the feeble masses have allowed the truths behind Snowden’s hard work to fade almost completely away from the national conscience and consciousness. These are symptoms of how someone like O became president in the first place. Here is the hard reality of the nation called the United States of America > people don’t care enough about the reality and direction of the country to muster an American Spring. The opiates of MSM, entertainment industry, pharmaceuticals and alcohol have created a pickled nation unable to concentrate or keep a clear thought. Stimulus is what is craved and once that stimulus is consumed, attention goes to the next opportunity of stimulus consumption. Stimulus consists of sex, violence, gossip/dirt, immorality, self-indulgence, gluttony, voyeurism, information and purchasing power. On the other hand, thinking, intelligence, reason, morals, ethics and values are minimized if not absent.

 

Egypt, Iran, NSA and the American Government

Deputy Secretary of State William Burns, the first senior US official to visit Cairo since the military coup of July 3, exchanged tough talk with the coup leader, Defense minister Gen. Abdel Fattah El-Sisi, Monday, after he met interim President Adly Mansour and Prime Minister Hazem al-Beblawi.
The general frankly advised Washington to be more realistic about the situation in Egypt. Accordingly to DEBKAfile’s Middle East sources, El-Sisi asked Burns bluntly why the Obama administration backed the Muslim Brotherhood and appeared to accept an Egypt plunged in chaos and economic meltdown during Mohamed Morsi’s one-year presidency.

Mustafa Bakari, an Egyptian politician, issued a brutal assessment of U.S. Ambassador to Egypt, Anne Patterson. Bakari stated, “In my opinion, she [Patterson] is a member of the sleeper cells of the Brotherhood, likely recruited by Essam al-Erian or Muhammad al-Baltagi.”

In a June 18 speech, Patterson made the following statement in a speech about the turmoil in Egypt:

“Some say that street action will produce better results than elections,” Patterson said. “To be honest, my government and I are deeply skeptical.”

Patterson, who is reportedly in line for a promotion as Assistant Secretary of State for Near Eastern Affairs, has been increasingly viewed, according to Hudson, as the “key implementer for a policy that at least offers tacit support to the Muslim Brotherhood.” Article here

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu told CBS News’ Face the Nation that Iran will reach the “red line” he laid down at the United Nations in Sep. 2012–90% uranium enrichment–within “a few weeks,” and that Israel will be prepared to act. “I won’t wait until it’s too late,” he told CBS News’ Bob Schieffer.

Netanyahu described Rouhani as a “wolf in sheep’s clothing” whose strategy was “smile, and build a bomb.” He insisted that Iran “stop all enrichment of nuclear material, take out the enriched uranium, and shut down the illegal nuclear facility in Qom,” or face harsher sanctions and, in the last resort, military action.

Thursday, the Egyptian military reported that a security operation carried out by the armed forces in northern Sinai in the past 48 hours had led to the deaths of 10 jihadists. Armed militants killed three Egyptian policemen in earlier separate attacks overnight.

Thursday, DEBKAfile reported that the security situation in Sinai and along the Egypt-Israel frontier is rapidly going from bad to worse. The Islamist coalition’s war on Egyptian police and military positions has gone far beyond the isolated strikes here and there reported by official spokesmen, DEBKAfile’s military sources report.

Hundreds of Salafist Bedouin, Muslim Brotherhood adherents and Palestinian Hamas and Islamic Jihad fighters from the Gaza Strip have joined forces to block northern Sinai’s key road arteries. They have stopped traffic to the Egyptian-Israeli border terminal at Nitzana, to the US-led multinational national observer base at Al Gora near El Arish, and to the big cement factory built by the Egyptian military in El Arish which is the region’s main source of employment.

By blocking those roads, the Islamist fighters have choked off the movement of goods between Egypt and Israel and placed 1,000 MFO troops, including some American officers, under siege.  Any vehicle driving in or out of Al Gora comes under anti-tank rocket fire. Flyers have been distributed forbidding locals to take jobs with Egyptian security forces or MFO.

The Islamists are now attacking Egyptian military and security targets at the rate of 30 strikes a day, traveling at speed between targets in minivans on which rocket launchers and heavy machine guns are mounted, or using motorbikes for raiders brandishing rocket-propelled grenades.  Article here

Collect it all:
In late 2005, as Iraqi roadside bombings were nearing an all-time peak, the National Security Agency’s newly appointed chief began pitching a radical plan for halting the attacks that were killing or wounding a dozen Americans a day.

At the time, more than 100 teams of U.S. analysts were scouring Iraq for snippets of electronic data that might lead to the bomb-makers and their hidden factories. But the NSA director, Gen. Keith B. Alexander, wanted more than mere snippets. He wanted everything: Every Iraqi text message, phone call and e-mail that could be vacuumed up by the agency’s powerful computers.

“Rather than look for a single needle in the haystack, his approach was, ‘Let’s collect the whole haystack,’ ” said one former senior U.S. intelligence official who tracked the plan’s implementation. Collect it all, tag it, store it. ... And whatever it is you want, you go searching for it.”

The unprecedented data collection plan, dubbed Real Time Regional Gateway, would play a role in breaking up Iraqi insurgent networks and significantly reducing the monthly death toll fromimprovised explosive devices by late 2008. It also encapsulated Alexander’s controversial approach to safeguarding Americans from what he sees as a host of imminent threats, from terrorism to devastating cyberattacks. Article here

 

2 cents:

  • Egypt: Hopefully the USA’s government will allow the government re-organization in Egypt to play out. Considering the people in leadership (cough, hack) in our government we should stick the sidelines with our mouths shut and eyes looking elsewhere (such as Iran or domestically). If Ronald Reagan was alive and was our president my diagnosis would be very different but since we have a…. well, let’s leave it as “unsaid”.
  • Iran nuclear aspirations: We need to have the IAEA approach the new government of Iran and see what plays out. Change in transparency? Nicer language and positioning but the same activities? Ultimatums need to be pocketed as well as any embargo-easing.
  • Domestically, the USA is almost a year into the four year term of the pathetic leadership (cough, hack) that was elected. Our problems/issues are numerous. The lack of wise practical leadership is massive. I think the question is how long can the country and its economy tread water? Other questions: Will the conservative, Christian people have a serious contender to offer up to the nation as a choice for the next presidential election? Will tangible positive change be swept into Congress? Will the people in the USA quit allowing themselves to be led by MSM and its hateful destructive philosophies? Will the concerned, ethical citizens of the USA unite and push for the much needed responsible systemic changes that the local, state and federal governments need? An American Spring?

2 cents on Snowden and the WH

1. I would not classify him as a traitor.
2. At Dictionary.com – hero is defined as “a man of distinguished courage or ability, admired for his brave deeds and noble qualities.” Using or understanding this definition I believe you would have to classify Snowden as a hero.
3. The package of charges pressed against him yesterday are scandalous, unethical and corrupt.

Unfortunately because of what the US government is doing and the way they are doing it, the only way to get the information out to the masses is something akin to what Snowden has done. I do not make the comments like “We need an American Spring” lightly. I realize how painful that could be. But the reality is that the world we live in is not the REAL world at all. Put another way, we are not as free as you or I might think. We have allowed the erosion of our liberty, pursuit of happiness and freedoms to such a level and by such means that they can, are and have been taken away in such a matter that we are ignorant of its impact. Of course one could argue “then what is the big deal?” Easy – when the government decides it is in its best interest to greatly restrict our livelihood, all the pieces and processes will be in place so that avoidance will be virtually impossible.

We NEED an American Spring!
