NSA losing interest in deal for Snowden
The Hill [DC], by Julian Hatten

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 7/27/2014 4:34:06 PM

The Obama administration is increasingly less inclined to make a deal to allow Edward Snowden to come back to the United States, according to a top National Security Agency official. "As time goes on, the utility for us of having that conversation becomes less," NSA No. 2 Rick Ledgett said this weekend at Aspen Security Forum in Colorado, according to Politico. "It´s been over a year since he had access to our networks and our information so the need for us to understand that greater level of detail is lesser and lesser." The comment could point to increasing difficulty for Snowden and

Let´s trade 11 million illegals for Snowden and then throw a parade for him.

The official used the term "having that conversation", which appears to be a commie buzz phrase indicating a deception occurring.

He can never come home and he knows it. The government will make sure he has an "accident" that cannot be traced back to them, regardless of any deal that may have been made.
He will have to live out his life as a marked man, secure only in the knowledge that he did his nation, his fellow citizens and freedom itself an invaluable service.

I for one support Mr. Snowden. You really think the intel commununity gathering all this data on us and whoever else is really about protecting us?

"What of the data, though? Intelligence agencies are drowning in it, collecting and analyzing an amalgamation of information from sensors, satellites, surveillance efforts, open data repositories and human intelligence, among other sources."

Perhaps he would come back and help the IRS find Lois Lerners "lost" emails! These two scandals fit nicely because the govt knows everything about the citizens but the citizens can´t know anything about the government or the actions of its elite rulers. This is the reverse of what it should be!

He gave secrets to our most murderous enemies. He didn´t have to to that. If he was a true whistleblower he would have found other ways to deal with it instead of consigning his fellow countrymen to death. He deserves to end his life dangling from a rope.

Well #9 Snowdon knew from the experience of Bill Binney and others that he would get no protection from the whistleblower law.

http://www.npr.org/2014/07/22/333741495/before-snowden-the-whistleblowers-who-tried-to-lift-the-veil

He was a real whistleblower - and originally an Obama supporter who believed his promises of transparency! The information he exposed is not to aid enemies but show the population how out of control the NSA is and that citizens have no privacy.

There is an easy solution. Darryl Issa should issue a subpoena that demands Snowdon´s terminal in Moscow be connected to the systems he formerly had access to and all the output be sent directly to his congressional investigation servers! It´s already on the NSA servers so they won´t need to tap the line this time!

It is bias to condemn Snowden without the same feelings for Clapper. As with the MSM, the issue is what is not reported

If we do not crush the NSA, we are not constitionalists.

Bus Crash That Killed 4 ´Being

The crash of a bus and a tractor-trailer that left four Texas college softball players dead and 15 others injured is "being investigated like a homicide," police said today, as officials try to piece together what happened. The early indication is that the tractor-trailer crossed over Interstate 35, into the southbound lanes, near the Oklahoma-Texas border, and struck a bus owned by North Central Texas College that was carrying the team back to campus after a game Friday evening. "We just know that the semi impacted the bus and the bus was traveling southbound on the interstate when the collision occurred," Oklahoma

In most of its details, the domestic-violence case of Mark Fuller was not all that unusual. One night in August, a woman called 911 from a hotel room in Atlanta, pleading for help, because a man was beating her. When the police arrived, Fuller’s wife, Kelli, opened the door. She had “visible lacerations to her mouth and forehead,” the police report said. During an argument in which she had accused her husband of infidelity, the report continued, she said that he “threw her to the ground and kicked her. Mrs. Fuller also stated she was dragged around the room and Mr. Fuller hit her in the mouth several times with his hands.

Any self-respecting congressional reporter not wearing a protective athletic cup probably would have rushed out of the way to safety. “Get out of my way or I’ll kick you in the crotch and give you a hernia from here to New Jersey,” sneered former Jim Traficant at a cadre of journalists blocking his exit from a hearing room in the Rayburn House Office Building in July 2002. The House Ethics Committee had recessed from a meeting about Traficant’s conviction on federal corruption charges. At the end of the session, Traficant tried to make his way into the corridor while committee members deliberated

Global Citizen Festival Fights
Poverty By Leaving A Mess

If you caught any of the Global Citizen Festival on MSNBC Saturday night, you saw millionaires and billionaires decry “extreme poverty” around the world. The concert was held in New York City’s Central Park and involved an elaborate stage and light show by the likes of No Doubt, Jay-Z and Beyoncé. They could easily end a lot of poverty if they wanted, but… Since the hypocrisy of people who made their fortunes through capitalism complaining about it is obvious, I’ll just say this on that: Capitalism is so awesome that you can even get rich by telling people it’s awful.

Last week I penned a column titled, “THANKS TO ISLAM: ‘Beheading’ Has Been Re-introduced Into Our Discussions”. In the column that I penned seven days ago I put forth this warning: “For those of us in the U.S. still skipping around the maypole with rose-colored glasses on, thinking beheadings will never happen in our neck of the woods — I’m sure that’s what the UK thought prior to Lee Rigby’s beheading last year.” Now, unless you live in la-la-land, you’re well aware of the brutal beheading that happened in Moore, Oklahoma this past Friday.

Jeter farewell has become a money grab

I’ll admit to being a little cynical when it comes to Derek Jeter’s retirement tour. He’s a great player, and his spot in Cooperstown is reserved five years hence. But, as tends to happen in these situations, he’s been a bit overrated in much of the sermonizing of his career over the past several months. Sermonizing that will mercifully come to an end this afternoon at Fenway Park. His walk-off hit Thursday night at Yankee Stadium was special, even for those who have lived to hate the guy in a sports context over the past two decades. IIt was special because it came at Yankee Stadium, in front of the fans who have given him their undivided

Howard Kurtz writes the obituary of the anti-war movement. Born in 2003, the movement experienced sudden difficulties in January 2009, struggled and limped along for the past few years, and finally collapsed in the street in front of the White House least week: Medea Benjamin of Code Pink was asked why so few on the left oppose Obama. “‘He’s totally defanged us,’ she said, citing his party, his affability — and his race. ‘The black community is traditionally the most antiwar community in this country. He’s defanged that sentiment within the black community, or certainly voicing that sentiment.’” Defanged. Wow, those are

Climate Worship at the Cathedral

Hundreds of thousands marched in New York recently for climate “justice” in “The People’s Climate March,” convinced that human industry is heating the earth to apocalyptic levels. Naturally there was a religious auxiliary to the Global Warming jamboree in the form of the Interfaith Summit on Climate Change, sponsored by the World Council of Churches, among others. And of course it included earth-friendly worship at the flamboyant Episcopal Cathedral of St. John the Divine, whose theologically provocative services some critics have labeled earth worship. Those critics would have found vindication at the cathedral on

Justice Department to ban profiling

The Justice Department is expected to issue a broad new policy in the coming two to three weeks banning religious and other forms of profiling by federal law enforcement officers, department sources said Friday. The long-awaited policy will not include an exemption for national security investigations, sources said. National security officials and others in the administration concerned about terrorism lobbied hard for such an exemption, according to congressional sources. The new policy will cover ethnicity and sexual orientation as well as religion. Advocates of the new policy said they were surprised because the debate over the

For almost two years, an unmanned space plane bearing a remarkable resemblance to NASA’s space shuttle has circled the Earth, performing a top-secret mission. It’s called the X-37B Orbital Test Vehicle — but that’s pretty much all we know for certain. Officially, the only role the Pentagon acknowledges is that the space plane is used to conduct experiments on new technologies. Theories about its mission have ranged from an orbiting space bomber to an anti-satellite weapon. The truth, however, is likely much more obvious: According to intelligence experts and satellite watchers who have closely monitored its orbit, the X-37B is

   

 



 
Is Obama Striking an Alliance with Iran?

Two new issues have emerged regarding the Obama administration’s policy towards ISIS, which was announced last week in President Obama’s speech to the nation. Both are connected to Iran: (a) the positions the administration will take regarding cooperation with it in fighting ISIS and (b) in negotiations regarding Iran’s nuclear centrifuges. Should the United States accept Iran as a partner in its fight to “degrade and destroy” ISIS? Already, many self-proclaimed “realists” have argued for its necessity. In today’s Washington Post, Fareed Zakaria states: If President Obama truly wants to degrade and destroy the Islamic

I’m not the first person to bring it up – in fact I’ve seen it mentioned multiple times by the Hot Air commentariat – but the examples in high profile cases seem too weighty to ignore. The question at hand involves the media descriptions of suspects and victims in high profile crimes and the ever present, complicating factor of racial tensions in America.

We’re being had. Again. For six years, President Obama has endeavored to will the country into accepting two pillars of his alternative national-security reality. First, he claims to have dealt decisively with the terrorist threat, rendering it a disparate series of ragtag jayvees. Second, he asserts that the threat is unrelated to Islam, which is innately peaceful, moderate, and opposed to the wanton “violent extremists” who purport to act in its name. Now, the president has been compelled to act against a jihad that has neither ended nor been “decimated.” The jihad, in fact, has inevitably intensified under his counterfactual

Sarah Palin, who was the Republican nominee for vice president in 2008, mistakenly referred to the White House as being located at “1400 Pennsylvania Avenue.” “Don’t retreat.

Washington - The parents of Michael Brown said Saturday in an interview with The Associated Press they were unmoved by the apology of the Ferguson, Missouri, police chief weeks after their unarmed 18-year-old son was killed by a police officer. Brown´s mother, Lesley McSpadden, called for Chief Tom Jackson to be fired, and his father, Michael Brown Sr., said rather than an apology, they would rather see Officer Darren Wilson arrested for the death of their son on Aug. 9. "An apology would be when Darren Wilson has handcuffs, processed and charged with murder," Brown Sr. said. The young man, who was black,

If I were a scientist, I´d stick to the Goldman Sachs principle: bet on both sides. "Believe in science, believe in God" seems to cover all the possibilities and gives you the best chance for a cheery afterlife. For a time, it was thought that astrophysicist Stephen Hawking had also left a tiny gap in his credo window for a magical deity. However, he has now come out and declared that there is no God.

When the U.S. military strikes, its leaders often choose colorful code names for the operation that sometimes stick in history, like Operation Overlord or Rolling Thunder or Desert Storm. Not this time. The U.S.-led air campaign against the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria doesn´t have a name. "I know of no plans at this point to name it," Pentagon spokesman Rear Adm. John Kirby said Thursday. Since World War II, almost every U.S. military operation, large and small, has had a code name.

Political pollsters have a tough job. They have to create formulas to determine if the person they are interviewing is likely to vote, and it is within this calculation that their reputations are made. Typically, those who are likely to vote in an off-year election are pretty set. They are the people who always vote in elections — with some motivated by specific issues. In a wave election, the number of those motivated by specific issues escalates, changing the electoral landscape as the candidates who are beneficiaries of this increased participation sweep to victory.
