He’s got a robot. God bless this man for exposing government spying and rubbing exile in the face of the Feds. There’s nothing they can do. Maybe they can pass a law against robots with the consciousness of Edward Snowden. Maybe the Democrats and Republicans will both have a sit down eating donuts until the bill passes and it becomes mandatory to shoot all Snowden-bots on site, after background checks and not with an assault rifle because that would lead to gun violence.
Well here’s some good news and rare praise from me to a body of politicians. According to RT, the vote was 285 to 281 in favor of dropping charges.
Liberty activists will go gaga over the fact someone is being nice to Snowden, but I think the real significance here is that the world is getting less and less afraid to stand up to the US Government. They are weakening. Russian jets just buzzed the USS Ronald Reagen, some warship or other. China is threatening a passing US warship as it sails by some manmade island chain. And now Europe is raising the middle finger to the American State.
Raise it high. Keep it up. Good job Europe!
Just when you thought the Bush family couldn’t get any worse, Jeb Bush comes out with this disgusting praise for Obama. Not there aren’t a few (very very few) things to praise Obama for. I praise Obama for deescalating the fight with Cuba, and for being just a bit less of a schmuck on marijuana than most other presidents.
But Jeb Bush praises him for tracking the phone calls and emails of every American, a program introduced by his alcoholic war monger cokehead brother George. This is that wonderful program that Edward Snowden bravely made us all aware of, God bless him.
From RT (Or is that too pro Soviet Union? So is the NSA monitoring your phone calls more American then)?
“I would say the best part of the Obama administration would be his continuance of the protections of the homeland using the big metadata programs, the NSA being enhanced,” Bush said.
“Advancing this — even though he never defends it, even though he never openly admits it – there has been a continuation of a very important service, which is the first obligation, I think of our national government is to keep us safe. And the technologies that now can be applied to make that so, while protecting civil liberties, are there. And he’s not abandoned them, even though there was some indication that he might.”
These programs cannot be stopped. Nobody will stop them. There’s a very small chance, very small, that Rand Paul might stop them, but I doubt it. If he is elected and does stop them I’d be very surprised. I doubt any president even has the ability to stop them at this point.
Government is turning into Skynet.
