Edward Snowden: Becoming an ‘international fugitive’ was worth it

“I think the most liberating thing about burning your life to the ground, and becoming an international fugitive, or so I’m told, is that you no longer have to worry about tomorrow, you think about today,” he said. For me that’s been a great experience, I’m actually quite grateful for it.”

“Although he can “no longer see my family” or live in the US, Snowden said “the things I’ve received personally and we’ve all benefited from publicly, make it all worth it.”

“It has been incredibly rewarding, incredibly gratifying,” he added, pointing out that newspapers around the world have published stories about government abuses and courts had acted to stop them.”

I think that Snowden is a bona fida hero and should have a memorial erected to him. The man has gone as far as he can without sacrificing his life.

If the Fed.gov does end up with him in it’s clutches then I think that it should become the mission of every red bloodied patriot to free him.

I am not talking about protesting on the capitol lawn either.

There’s a Massive, Illicit Bust of Edward Snowden Stuck to a War Monument in Brooklyn

“While most people slept, a trio of artists and some helpers installed a bust of NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden in Brooklyn on Monday morning. The group, which allowed ANIMAL to exclusively document the installation on the condition that we hide their identities, hauled the 100-pound sculpture into Fort Greene Park and up its hilly terrain just before dawn. They fused it to part of the Prison Ship Martyrs Monument, a memorial to Revolutionary War soldiers. As of press time, the sculpture was still there.”

The big gay anti gun NFL

NFL stadium gun ban challenged in Minnesota court

Apparently guns are so evil that the NFL has banned even off duty cops from carrying them at games. This ban has prompted a lawsuit by two Minn. police orginizations who say it violates state law.   If you still support the NFL then you empower the enemy. If you turn the TV on to watch the superbowl then you enrich those who stand for what you despise. We live in a day and age of the NFL being a mouthpiece for the progressive machine. They are now espousing all the beliefs of the regime. If you would like to help them achieve their agenda, feel free. As for me I will take a pass on anything NFL.

Armed protesters show up at Erie Pa. anti gun control rally

http://www.theblaze.com/stories/2013/06/23/gun-rights-rallygoers-defy-local-law-confront-police-state-actions/

This is just the beginning. Expect to see more and more of this as the police state starts to clamp down. There will be magazine swap meets in Colorado on July 3rd also in open defiance of the law and last week in Loweville NY there were protests against the SAFE act.    Many of us have had enough and will not give up any more freedoms. We plan on resisting by any means available.  Not one more inch.

AMERICA’S DYSTOPIAN FUTURE

Our trip down the road to totalitarianism didn’t start in 1934 but that was the seminal year for the formation of the all powerful federal government. It actually started with Lincoln asserting Federal power over the states by making war on the confederates; but that was on the level of establishing federal supremacy over the states rights.  I use 1934  as the year that it really started because  that is when unlimited   federal  power was given over the citizenry.            With the much flawed ruling that banned machine guns. the fate of our nation was sealed; by ruling that machine guns affected interstate commerce and were therefore subject to the commerce clause the door was opened to the unlimited abuse of the clause that we now have. With the SCOTUS perverted interpretation of the commerce clause every aspect of American life could be claimed to be under Federal Jurisdiction. From what type of crops a farmer may grow to it being illegal to grow pot in your backyard has been ruled to be subject to the commerce clause. The Fed now dictates everything from your toilet and shower to your light bulbs the    Now for the scary part; the Obamacare ruling the National Federation of Independent Business v. Sebelius . A lot of people really haven’t thought about the implications of the ruling.      In addition unlimited jurisdiction through the commerce clause the federal government now has the unlimited power to tax; and not the power to tax as set forth in the constitution.  That treasonous bastard Justice Roberts has sold our nation into slavery.  We can now be compelled to do anything or pay a tremendous “Tax”.  There is no limit on the amount of the “Tax” that congress can exact for according to the Roberts court congress makes the call on all taxation.     Worried Yet?  If not, you should be. Think of all the possibilities: Register or turn in your guns or face a $15,000 tax, submit your DNA or face $10,000 tax or  a terrorism screening where you would be compelled to submit your work, financial and family history, your IP address, access to your email accounts and phone records.    You See?  The possibilities are endless. Whether you are left or right or center, name your biggest fear of the government and it can be found with this ruling.  Read it yourself if you don’t believe me.      There are no limitations on civil rights or anything else because you don’t have to comply;All you have to do is pay the tax; Congress has the constitutional authority to tax as it wishes according to this ruling.     Just wait until the scumbags in Washington figure out how to use this. Each party will claim to be the champion of the people protecting them from abuse and tyrannical taxation while they are positioning themselves to get both houses and the presidency so they can tax and oppress the fuck out of their enemies.      But my wonderful story of America doesn’t end here, it only starts here. When you couple unlimited federal jurisdiction and unlimited taxation powers with the increasingly militarized police state you can come up with some very scary scenarios. Anything the police state wants you can be compelled to give them, or be taxed to a pauper, anyone that can afford to not comply will find that under the commerce clause the fed has jurisdiction and they can be compelled by law.    To put it plainly and bluntly, we are fucked.        There is no way of voting your way out of this.  I will never cast a vote again; it does not matter. We have been given over to kings and tyrants by the treasonous scum on our highest court.         But in the end the most important questions are: What are you going to do when it begins?  Will you submit or resist? Will you go on as if life is normal or will you become Edward Snowden?

“I know not what course others may take, but as for me, give me liberty or give me death” Patrick Henry.

Crossing point

“I imagine everyone’s experience is different, but for me, there was no single moment. It was seeing a continuing litany of lies from senior officials to Congress – and therefore the American people – and the realization that that Congress, specifically the Gang of Eight, wholly supported the lies that compelled me to act. Seeing someone in the position of James Clapper – the Director of National Intelligence – baldly lying to the public without repercussion is the evidence of a subverted democracy. The consent of the governed is not consent if it is not informed,” Edward Snowden

What does it take to step over to the other side? As Edward Snowden said “It was no single event” that spurred him to do what he did. It was a collection of ever growing lies and deceit from our government that finally built until he reached his breaking point.  The important question is when will that point be reached for normal law abiding citizens? When will they realize the scale of the tyranny building and cross over themselves?     It is becoming ever more obvious that this administration is flagrantly flouting the rule of law and doing as it wishes. It certainly is not one single event but many; From Eric Holder and his contempt of congress to the IRS scandal. Every level of the government is involved in this lawlessness and corruption.      With the IRS scandal it was not just the IRS, some of the victims involved were not only audited , but also investigated by the FBI the ATF and even OSHA. With Bengahzi , the lies came from state and it is almost certain the white house was aware from the beginning but perpetuated them nonetheless.    Fast and furious involved not only the ATF, but also the FBI and state. Hillary used the guns coming in from fast and furious to try to further her gun control agenda when she used erroneous statistics about the guns coming from the US while standing next to a pile of assault rifles.  When Obama said that they were “working on gun control under the radar” it is almost certain that high level administration officials were aware that the ATF was flooding Mexico with guns and the carnage from those very same guns was going to be used to further their agenda.     Now we are  approaching the crossing point for “Normal” citizens; The point where they begin to rebel against the system. This is the point where righteousness begins to out weigh the threat of consequences and outrage overcomes fear. The enormity of these latest scandals are starting to sink into the public consciousness and resonate; This government is losing it’s legitimacy.     In Syria, when the mass protests first started, Assad’s troops began firing into the crowds to disperse them. When the shooting started the protests accelerated rather than diminished. Outrage overcame fear as the last shreds of Assad’s legitimacy evaporated .When he ordered firing upon peaceful protesters he could no longer be perceived as a legal, legitimate ruler.         People will submit to a lot of things , even if they don’t agree with them, if they feel they are legitimate. Take TSA for an example;  No one wants to go through a humiliating pat down, but as a whole, they submit to it.  They undergo the experience in the belief that TSA is, at least trying , to work for the greater good and are acting in good faith.     As soon as that belief in good faith is gone, such as being singled out unfairly or treated rudely, people immediately begin to rebel and a scene quickly ensues.  The context of the pat down changes as soon the perception of the pat down does.    The IRS is another prime example. The much feared financial arm of the Fed is going to find itself in difficult straits because of their malfeasance. It is simply a fundamental change in the perception of the agency.     Instead of fearing what they might find out, the attitude is going to be “” You are a bunch of frauds, crooks and liars, how dare you audit me. You are only auditing me because I write in opposition to the government”      Instead of fearfully submitting to an audit that type of perception can leave a bunch of agents in an office with the wrong end of a five gallon gas can.     The perception of events is all important and it all comes back to the consent of the governed. Even in prisons, they have the consent of the prisoners.Without that consent a prison could never be run. If no one followed the rules it would be chaos and so costly that no state could have one.   The prisons have the consent to run because most convicts know that they have broken the law and done wrong deeds; Even in prisons they have a sense of fairness. When prisoners feel that they are being mistreated or treated unfairly, riots break out or guards are singled out for revenge. (Which is actually fairly rare)  Once the perception of legitimacy is removed the prison quickly becomes ungovernable.    As more comes out about these scandals, more and more of the governments legitimacy is going to be removed. As it sinks in that the IRS was being used for voter suppression, to cheat the very way that we give our consent, more and more people are going to lose faith in the system and withdraw their consent.   As more information is released about the NSA domestic spying program and the true scope of the lies are revealed, one more layer of the veneer of legality will be stripped away from the regime.    As it becomes apparent that all of the powers of the Fed are being used for lawlessness and corruption and political machinations then more and more people are going to reach the crossing point.  I have already reached mine. How about you?

Over 1/2 of Senate members skip briefing on NSA domestic spying

http://thehill.com/homenews/senate/305765-senators-skip-classified-briefing-on-nsa-snooping-to-catch-flights-home

It is all about priorities. Only 47 out of 100 senate members attended a classified briefing on the NSA domestic spying. The rest hopped on planes early to enjoy the father’s day week end.     Do you feel represented? Do these spoiled elites stand for you or for me or for anything other than themselves ? It is apparent that they care nothing about their obligations to the constitution or their constituents .They have their position and power so why should they care about representing us when it is not an election year ?      If you don’t get it by now then you haven’t been paying attention; We have been had.  Everyone has been waiting for the revolution to start, when in fact it already over.The senate is no more interested in investigating the NSA than the FBI is in investigating the IRS. They are already aware of what is going on and are part of it.   We have been sold wholesale into bondage by both parties. This Government has become above the rule of law and our insignificant liberties will not stand in the way of it growing ever larger until it controls every aspect of our lives. The NSA spying is only the tip of the iceberg.    If you still think that you can vote your way out of this, I think you are sadly mistaken. Unless there are another 99 Rand Pauls waiting in the wings to be elected to the senate, the America that we knew is gone.      Now we are left with hard choices; Either submit or become the resistance.The time to choose will be coming in the near future.

Main core is a data base first exposed in 2008. It is a list, as of 2008, of 8 million Americans who are considered a threat to national security.The data base contains detailed personal and financial information on these individuals.  I would imagine that the data base has grown considerably since 2008.  I would also guess that somewhere out there, there is a hellfire missile with my name on it.
