A New Beginning Without Washington’s Sanctimonious Mask

June 26, 2013 by  

A New Beginning Without Washington’s Sanctimonious Mask

It is hard to understand the fuss that Washington and its media whores are making over Edward Snowden. We have known for a long time that the National Security Agency (NSA) has been spying for years without warrants on the communications of Americans and people throughout the world. Photographs of the massive NSA building in Utah, built for the purpose of storing the intercepted communications of the world, have been published many times.

It is not clear to an ordinary person what Snowden has revealed that William Binney and other whistle-blowers have not already revealed. Perhaps the difference is that Snowden has provided documents that prove it, thereby negating Washington’s ability to deny the facts with its usual lies.

Whatever the reason for Washington’s blather, it certainly is not doing the U.S. government any good. Far more interesting than Snowden’s revelations is the decision by governments of other countries to protect a truth-teller from the Stasi in Washington.

Hong Kong kept Snowden’s whereabouts secret so that an amerikan black-op strike or a drone could not be sent to murder him. Hong Kong told Washington that its extradition papers for Snowden were not in order and permitted Snowden to leave for Moscow.

The Chinese government did not interfere with Snowden’s departure.

The Russian government says it has no objection to Snowden having a connecting flight in Moscow.

Ecuador’s Foreign Minister Ricardo Patino responded to Washington’s threats with a statement that the Ecuadorian government puts human rights above Washington’s interests. Foreign Minister Patino said that Snowden served humanity by revealing that the Washington Stasi was violating the rights of “every citizen in the world.” Snowden merely betrayed “some elites that are in power in a certain country,” whereas Washington betrayed the entire world.

With Hong Kong, China, Russia, Ecuador and Cuba refusing to obey the Stasi’s orders, Washington is flailing around, making a total fool of itself and its media prostitutes.

Secretary of State John Kerry has been issuing warnings hand over fist. He has threatened Russia, China, Ecuador and every country that aids and abets Snowden’s escape from the Washington Stasi. Those who don’t do Washington’s bidding, Kerry declared, will suffer adverse impacts on their relationship with the United States.

What a stupid thing for Kerry to say. Here is a guy who once was for peace but who has been turned by NSA spying on his personal affairs into an asset for the NSA. Try to realize the extraordinary arrogance and hubris in Kerry’s threat that China, Russia and other countries will suffer bad relations with the United States. Kerry is saying that amerika doesn’t have to care whether “the indispensable people” have bad relations with other countries, but those countries have to be concerned if they have bad relations with the “indispensable country.” What an arrogant posture for the U.S. government to present to the world.

Here we have a U.S. Secretary of State lost in delusion along with the rest of Washington. A country that is bankrupt, a country that has allowed its corporations to destroy its economy by moving the best jobs offshore, a country whose future is in the hands of the printing press, a country that after 11 years of combat has been unable to defeat a few thousand lightly armed Taliban is now threatening Russia and China. God save us from the utter fools who comprise our government.

The world is enjoying Washington’s humiliation at the hands of Hong Kong. A mere city-state gave Washington the bird. In its official statement, Hong Kong shifted the focus from Snowden to his message and asked the U.S. government to explain its illegal hacking of Hong Kong’s information systems.

China’s state newspaper, The People’s Daily, wrote: “The United States has gone from a model of human rights to an eavesdropper on personal privacy, the manipulator of the centralized power over the international internet, and the mad invader of other countries’ networks. . . The world will remember Edward Snowden. It was his fearlessness that tore off Washington’s sanctimonious mask.”

China’s Global Times, a subsidiary of The People’s Daily, accused Washington of attacking “a young idealist who has exposed the sinister scandals of the U.S. government.” Instead of apologizing, “Washington is showing off its muscle by attempting to control the whole situation.”

China’s official Xinhua news agency reported that Snowden’s revelations had placed “Washington in a really awkward situation. They demonstrate that the United States, which has long been trying to play innocent as a victim of cyberattacks, has turned out to be the biggest villain in our age.”

The Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov made it clear that Russia’s sympathy is with Snowden, not with the amerikan Stasi state. Human rights ombudsman Vladimir Lukin said that it was unrealistic to expect the Russian government to violate law to seize a transit passenger who had not entered Russia and was not on Russian soil. RT’s Gayane Chichakyan reported that Washington is doing everything it can to shift attention away from Snowden’s revelations that “show that the U.S. has lied and has been doing the same as they accuse China of doing.”

Ecuador says the traitor is Washington, not Snowden.

The stuck pig squeals from the NSA director — “Edward Snowden has caused irreversible damage to U.S.” — are matched by the obliging squeals from members of the House and Senate, themselves victims of the NSA spying (as was the director of the CIA, who was forced to resign because of a love affair). The NSA is in position to blackmail everyone in the House and Senate, in the White House itself, in all the corporations, in the universities, in the media and in every organization at home and abroad who has anything to hide. You can tell who is being blackmailed by the intensity of the squeals, such as those of Senator Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) and Representative Mike Rogers (R-Mich.). With any luck, a patriot will leak what the NSA has on Feinstein and Rogers, neither of whom could possibly scrape any lower before the NSA.

The gangster government in Washington that has everything to hide is now in NSA’s hands and will follow orders. The pretense that amerika is a democracy responsible to the people has been exposed. The United States is run by and for the NSA. Congress and the White House are NSA puppets.

Let’s quit calling the NSA the National Security Agency. Clearly, NSA is a threat to the security of every person in the entire world. Let’s call the NSA what it really is: the National Stasi Agency, the largest collection of Gestapo in human history. You can take for granted that every media whore, every government prostitute and every ignorant flag-waver who declares Snowden to be a traitor is either brainwashed or blackmailed. They are the protectors of NSA tyranny. They are our enemies.

The world has been growing increasingly sick of Washington for a long time. The bullying, the constant stream of lies and the gratuitous wars and destruction have destroyed the image hyped by Washington of the U.S. as a “light unto the world.” The world sees the U.S. as a plague upon the world.

Following Snowden’s revelations, Germany’s most important magazine, Der Spiegal, had the headline: “Obama’s Soft Totalitarianism: Europe Must Protect Itself From America.” The article asks: “Is Barack Obama a friend? Revelations about his government’s vast spying program call that into doubt. The European Union must protect the Continent from America’s reach for omnipotence.”

Der Spiegal continues: “We are being watched. All the time and everywhere. And it is the Americans who are doing the watching. On Tuesday, the head of the largest and most all-encompassing surveillance system ever invented is coming for a visit. If Barack Obama is our friend, then we really don’t need to be terribly worried about our enemies.”

There is little doubt that German Interior Minister Hans Peter Friedrich has lost his secrets to NSA spies. Friedrich rushed to NSA’s defense, declaring: “That’s not how you treat friends.” As Der Spiegal made clear, the minister was not referring “to the fact that our trans-Atlantic friends were spying on us. Rather, he meant the criticism of that spying. Friedrich’s reaction is only paradoxical on the surface and can be explained by looking at geopolitical realities. The US is, for the time being, the only global power–and as such it is the only truly sovereign state in existence. All others are dependent–either as enemies or allies. And because most prefer to be allies, politicians–Germany’s included–prefer to grin and bear it.”

It is extraordinary that the most important publication in Germany has acknowledged that the German government is Washington’s puppet state.

Der Spiegel says: “German citizens should be able to expect that their government will protect them from spying by foreign governments. But the German interior minister says instead: ‘We are grateful for the excellent cooperation with US secret services.’ Friedrich didn’t even try to cover up his own incompetence on the surveillance issue. ‘Everything we know about it, we have learned from the media,’ he said. The head of the country’s domestic intelligence agency, Hans-Georg Maassen, was not any more enlightened. ‘I didn’t know anything about it,’ he said. And Justice Minister Sabine Leutheusser-Schnarrenberger was also apparently in the dark. ‘These reports are extremely unsettling,’ she said. With all due respect: These are the people who are supposed to be protecting our rights? If it wasn’t so frightening, it would be absurd.”

For those moronic amerikans who say, “I’m not doing anything wrong, I don’t care if they spy,” Der Spiegal writes that a “monitored human being is not a free one.” We have reached the point where we “free americans” have to learn from our German puppets that we are not free.

Read it for yourself here.

Present-day Germany is a new country, flushed of its past by war and defeat. Russia is also a new country that has emerged from the ashes of an unrealistic ideology. Hope always resides with those countries that have most experienced evil in government. If Germany were to throw off its amerikan overlord and depart NATO, amerikan power in Europe would collapse. If Germany and Russia were to unite in defense of truth and human rights, Europe and the world would have a new beginning.

A new beginning is desperately needed. Chris Floyd explains precisely what is going on, which is something you will never hear from the presstitutes. Read it while you still can.

There would be hope if Americans could throw off their brainwashing, follow the lead of Debra Sweet and others, and stand up for Snowden and against the Stasi State.

    History teaches, that it repeats it self. . Nazi Germany.? Not yet, but at the pace the Government is going it is just around. They make secrete pacts, cost millions of people there jobs, raise taxes, demand loyalty, do illegal testing, violate every fiber of the constitution, and wast money like there is no tomorrow. Trillions on keeping forces over seas, billions on Fema prisons, billions on spying on Americans, cars, and jets, and trips on tax payers money. Its not right or fare. We are being taxed more now than the colonists by the King of England. We need to start over with only the Constitution.

      Right on again as usual shadow it looks like to me that not only us but the rest of the world is tired of this giant bully the USA and to the people of the rest of the world the decisions our government makes do not reflect our beliefs or desires they make these decisions without our consent or approval as I’m sure plenty of your countries leaders have done also it’s one thing to declare war if your being threatened its a different thing to declare war just cause you can we condem other countries for these actions are we that much different than those countries we condem for those same actions?

  • Carol Noucher

    I tried to read the comments of Chris Floyd but I could not get into them. There was a 503 code among others. Too bad I would have liked to read his thoughts.

  • Carol Noucher

    I have been reading about the Bildenberg Group. I am not one for conspiracy theory’s but very many events seem to fit. No one believed Nazi Germany either. It’s worth looking into.

    • shadow1776

      Carol you mite want to check on all the Fema camps, and disposable coffins. The Government ordered a lot.

  • Brent black

    All we have to do is quit paying taxes. None of those greedy polititians will stay there if they arent making easy money-or the prospect of it. They will all go home if the government doesnt have all our money to waste. They cant put us all in jail-and the police they would send to try it wont risk their life if they arent getting paid.
