Snowden Bombshell: Downloaded All the roster of US public employees…

Edward Snowden, the former contractor at the National Security Agency took with him multiple “Doomsday” packages of information when he departed the country and began revealing how intensely the US Government is spying on its own citizens.

He has the personal home info for all Elected Officials, Law Enforcement, Judges, Bankers, Corporate Boards of Directors and more!

Snowden Bombshell: Seems he downloaded entire roster of U.S. government – all names, home addresses and other personal info of **all** officials and gov’t employees — including law enforcement — plus bankers, corporate boards of directors and more!

At a classified briefing for members of Congress which took place on Wednesday, members found out that Snowden took with him:

  • a complete roster of absolutely every employee and official of the entire US Government.
  • The names, home addresses, unlisted personal home telephone and personal cellular phone numbers, dates of birth and social security numbers of every person involved in any way, with any department of the US Government.
  • The files include elected officials, Cabinet appointees, Judges, and  **ALL** law enforcement agency employees including sworn officers.
  • Similar files with the personal information of EVERY government contractor and all employees of that contractor!
  • Similar files with all the personal information of EVERY Bank Corporation, their operating officers and their Boards of Directors, including all current and former members of the Federal Reserve
  • Similar files with all the personal information about anyone holding any type of license from the Government such as Doctors, Lawyers, Stock Brokers, Commodities Traders . . . . and many more.
  • Similar files with all the personal information of EVERY non-bank Corporation in the U.S., including their operating officers and Boards of Directors.

Snowden has made it clear that if he is arrested, if he vanishes, or if he “dies” from any cause whatsoever, ALL of the information in his possession will be published publicly.

TRN has confirmed that, working through Julian Assange and his “WikiLeaks” organization, copies of the encrypted data have already been distributed to more than 1,200 web sites around the world.

Those sites have agreed to conceal the information until such time as contact with Snowden is “lost.”  Once contact is lost, the sites have been told they will receive the Decryption keys via CD ROM, E-mail and P2P / Bit-Torrent file transfer.

Once the decryption keys are sent, the sites have been instructed to wait a specific amount of time to confirm Snowden’s disappearance, arrest or death and upon expiration of that time period, to publish the decrypted materials.

Making the situation all the more dire for the government is that Snowden has made clear he will release some of the information under certain “other” circumstances.

For instance,

1. if Martial Law is declared in the US or if any elections are canceled for any reason, all the government employee info goes out.

2. If an economic collapse takes place, all the Banker/Stock Broker/Commodities Trader information goes out.

3. If Corporations start hyper-inflating prices, all the information about them, their officers and Board of Directors will go out.

Snowden literally has the most powerful people in the United States in an inescapable stranglehold.  If any of the things articulated above take place, everyone throughout the country will know exactly who to blame and exactly where they live.

One can only speculate that under the right conditions, it might not be long until those responsible for the problems of our country, faced consequences for their actions; consequences delivered one at a time, in the dark of night, when there is no help . . . . and no escape.

Leading members of the House Armed Services Committee emerged from the classified briefing “shocked” at the amount of information he reportedly took with him beyond the NSA surveillance programs.

Rep. Mac Thornberry (R-Texas), chairman of the Armed Service panel’s Intelligence, Emerging Threats and Capabilities Subcommittee and also a member of the House Intelligence Committee, said the briefing on the defense consequences of Snowden’s leaks was “very highly classified,” and therefore details couldn’t be discussed.

Thornberry did say that lawmakers “left the briefing disturbed and angered” after hearing that the leaks by the former Booz Allen Hamilton employee “went well beyond programs associated with the NSA and data collection.”

He characterized the leaks as so severe that they “compromise military capability and defense of the country” and “could cost lives” — while they “will certainly cost billions to repair.”

“His actions were espionage, plain and simple,” Thornberry said.

Armed Services Chairman Buck McKeon (R-Calif.) read his statement rather than making comments on the fly “because of the seriousness of this issue and the sensitivity” of the information they’d just heard.

“Ed Snowden isn’t a whistleblower; he’s a traitor,” McKeon said.

No matter what opinion people hold of the data collection programs, he added, people should be “shocked and outraged to find that a substantial amount of the information has nothing to do with the NSA.

Arab Spring preemptive history?

Funny piece: “Arab” political structure to go full cycle back to dictators and oligarchic system of governance no later than 2017? Actually it is taking place right now and the “Mass uprising” are supporting the potential new military dictators.

For example, Libya is experiencing a military coup claiming to disband the parliament that extended its term.

Egypt is about to elect its military Field Marshal Sisi to the presidency.

Tunisia managed to get over its unrest by adopting a constitution that didn’t mention Islam as the main source of civil laws and for equality in rights between the genders. The full cooperation of France and Algeria to block any infiltration of extremist jihadists from Libya and Mali into Tunisia bore fruit.

A short, pre-emptive history of the Arab Spring

Most history books can be very tedious. They are also full of speculation and guesswork because they’re normally written many years after the fact.

Having lived through the ‘Arab Spring’, I decided to spare future generations the ordeal of figuring out what precisely happened between 2011 and 2017, which is the ‘Arab Spring’ officially ended.

To that end, I wrote this short, preemptive history that will render all future speculation about the subject entirely useless and leave future generations with more time on their hands to figure out what the point of Stonehenge was.

The Arab Spring was so called because it started in December (Isn’t December winter?).

But it’s a little-known fact that in Arabic it’s not called the Arab Spring, but ‘the so-called Arab Spring’. It is generally agreed that the Arab Spring started in Tunisia in December 2010, although some imaginative people date its beginning back to the ‘Beirut Spring’ of 2005, or the removal of Saddam Hussein by the Americans in 2003, or the invention of political metaphors by Thomas Friedman in 1983.

The Tunisian revolution ended with the swift departure of President Zine El Abidine Ben Ali, who subsequently became known as ‘Ben Ali the Hasty’. Although that was kind of pointless because nobody talked about him anymore and a thus an excellent moniker was wasted which is a shame because history books are full of such monikers. Like Louis the Fat and Leopold the Passive Aggressive, but I digress.

A footnote: Ben Ali went to live in Saudi Arabia like many a dictator before him.

It remains a historical curiosity to this day why Saudi Arabia is so keen on hosting dictators (remember Idi Amin of Uganda?) but some analysts have pointed out to the fact that this is because old dictators are referred to as ‘dinosaurs’, so Saudi Arabia is trying to maintain its supply of fossil fuels for the future.

Eleven days after Ben Ali’s departure a revolution started in Egypt demanding President Hosni Mubarak step down.

The revolution was started by Egyptian SECULARISTS, which is an acronym made up of the names of the groups participating in the revolution, such as the Sixth of April Movement, the Eleventh of April Movement, The Tenth of April Movement and so on.

As the days passed, the Egyptian Army was torn between its loyalty to Mubarak and the Egyptian desire to break Tunisia’s record of 28 days for a dictator stepping down, so it stepped in and forced Mubarak to step down after 18 days, thus ensuring Egypt’s name in the record books.

Mubarak was given the choice between prison and exile in Saudi Arabia, so he chose prison.

Most historians agree that what happened next was quite complicated to get into, and it is generally agreed that it’s best to skip a few paragraphs to the election of Field Marshall and Most Manly Man Abdul Fattah al-Sisi to President of Egypt in 2014 where he stayed in power until 2032 or forever, whichever comes first.

It was Libya’s turn next, according to an ancient Arab system that is based on observing the movement of the stars for a while and then realizing the futility of that and deciding to revolt.

The Libyan people decided to topple Gaddafi, but Gaddafi said he wasn’t actually the leader and reminded everyone of that episode in Seinfeld when Kramer couldn’t be fired from his job because he wasn’t actually employed by the corporation.

At this point, the world held its breath because this was the first Arab revolt not directed against a Western-friendly regime, particularly if we ignore Tony Blair’s grovelling to Gaddafi and the CIA making use of his state of the art torture facilities.

I mean Gaddafi’s torture facilities, not Tony Blair’s, because Blair preferred to rent facilities when he needed them, in keeping with his Third Way political philosophy which highlighted the importance of public-private partnerships.

After observing the situation for a few months, the West lept into action and decided that it would be convenient to abandon Gaddafi and to try to look like the good guys.

Gaddafi was given the choice between exile in Saudi Arabia and death, so he chose death. Nobody knows exactly what happened next in Libya, but maybe if you’re reading this in the future you could tell us.

At this point president Assad II of Syria was smugly going around telling everyone that there will be no uprising in Syria because he was a Just and Good Ruler.

President Assad had succeeded his father, who was coincidentally also called Assad, and had continued his father’s tradition of providing free public services like education, health and torture. But the ungrateful Syrian people overlooked this generosity and decided to revolt.

Assad was given a choice between exile in Saudi Arabia and exile in Qatar, so he decided to fight back.

It is generally agreed that the Syrian revolution started with peaceful demonstrations against the government, but some people said that those demonstrations were actually filmed on special sets that were built for this purpose in Qatar.

However, some people argued that the people saying that the demonstrations were filmed on set in Qatar were themselves saying this on special sets built in Iran.

The people making those accusations were accused of making those statements on special sets built in Turkey.

This may help explain why Syria is known for its historic dramas which are filmed on set.

The US and its Western allies didn’t know how to react to the Syrian revolt, with opinions split between those who said Assad should step down and others who thought he should step aside.

This debate continued to plague American policy towards Syria, and President Obama decided to get around this by simultaneously arming and not arming the Syrian rebels, arguing that at least one of those policies will work.

The policy was so clever that President Obama was awarded the Nobel Prize for Peace in 2009. (3 years ahead of applying his genuine policy of woshy washy…)

And thus ends our comprehensive history of the Arab Spring.

If you’re reading this in the West or the Gulf, you’re probably missing the sections about Yemen and Bahrain but that’s only because they are inconvenient for American and Saudi leaders.

You can find out more by searching for the word ‘truth’ on the internet, an endeavor that would make you totally paranoid.

Topless skier Jackie Chamoun: the least of Lebanon’s problems?

The re-emergence of a 3-year old semi-nude photo-shoot in the snow of Lebanon’s Winter Olympics competitor has displeased her government. Now her compatriots are stripping off online in support.
In The Guardian:

Name: Jackie Chamoun.

Age: 22.

Appearance: Cold.

Who is Jackie Chamoun? She’s a Lebanese Olympic skier.

Lebanon has a ski team? Lebanon is a mountainous country with many ski resorts and a history of skiing dating to 1913. But no, not really. They are just two of them.

So why’s she cold then? Does she not have the right gear?

Several photos have emerged showing Chamoun nearly naked in the snow, apart from mittens, goggles and ski poles.

I’m not familiar with that event. The pictures are from a 3-year-old calendar shoot, but they still caused consternation in Lebanon.

For fear that Jackie would catch her death? No.

The minister for sports and youth, Faisal Karami, ordered the country’s Olympic committee to investigate, and to “take the required steps so that Lebanon’s reputation is not harmed”.

Their reputation for what? Dressing appropriately for the weather?

His criticism is a bit rich, especially in a country where most athletes have to sponsor themselves because the government’s sports budget is miniscule.

I expect there was some sort of backlash. There was.

The minister’s comment was labelled “backward” and “patriarchal”, and dozens of Lebanese people posted topless photos of themselves on Twitter in sympathy, using the hashtag #stripforJackie.

Literally dozens? Well, more than a dozen.

But many more were upset that the minister was seeking to stir up a scandal while the country’s very real problems went unaddressed. In light of a recent spate of bombings, the government was accused of focusing on “boobs not bombs”.

I follow you. But then others accused the campaigners of being frivolous and immodest. “#StripforJackie is just an excuse to get naked on social media,” tweeted one objector. “This is getting very disgusting!”

How does Chamoun feel about spearheading such a strange campaign? She’s not really part of it.

She immediately apologised for the leaked pictures on Facebook. “I know that Lebanon is a conservative country and this is not the image that reflects our culture,” she wrote.

Do say: “It’s all got a bit complicated. Why don’t we put the controversy behind us, and allow Jackie to concentrate on her skiing?”

Don’t say: “The secret is lots of layers.”
