  1. http://www.politico.com/story/2015/03/edward-snowden-wants-to-return-us-115697.html?cmpid=sf#ixzz3TL1EXcAd Snowden is innocent of any crime. During all his many private investigations, evidence-gathering, and publicizing of gov't tyranny, he emphatically lacked criminal intent. Indeed, he was desperately trying to obey "the law of the land" i.e. the US Constitution. He was desperately trying to get others to do so as well, including the heads of the White House, NSA, CIA, FBI, etc. But all his good efforts failed. He was unendingly told by every supervisor in gov't to "Mind your own business," and "Shut up, and do as you're told." So he had to become a whistle-blower and dissident in order to expose all that unprecedented and stunning spying and Big Brotherism. What else was he supposed to do? In he receives anything like a fair trial he will be found innocent. As for the the heads of the White House, NSA, CIA, FBI, etc. -- they're guilty as hell! They're criminals and tyrants almost to infinity. They're the opposite side of the same evil coin as ISIS.
  2. Cultist monster Peter Schwartz analyzes Edward Snowden and the National Security Agency: http://peterschwartz.com/snowden-and-the-nsa/
  3. Even more from the Washington Post. The Obama Administration secretly reversed restrictions that had been placed on NSA domestic spying. Outside of the Washington Post (and possibly The New York Times - both have agreements with The Guardian and with WikiLeaks to publish Snowden's materials), how widely will the MSM report on this? http://www.washingtonpost.com/world/national-security/obama-administration-had-restrictions-on-nsa-reversed-in-2011/2013/09/07/c26ef658-0fe5-11e3-85b6-d27422650fd5_story.html
  4. Those mischievous guys at the NSA have pulled another trick: according to the article, they have broken ALL major encryption codes, including their own method that they have helpfully offered to everyone. AND, they got agreements from all the major ISPs and public search engines, to build in "backdoors" so that NSA can snoop anywhere and apparently read most everything. Of course, your friends at Facebook, Google, AOL, Microsoft, etc. did not tell you. Google has responded with a "Who us? Never did any such thing" answer. Read the link: ,http://www.upi.com/Top_News/US/2013/09/06/Documents-show-NSA-can-crack-most-Web-privacy-encryption/UPI-60871378450800/?spt=hs&or=tn
  5. In Peikoff's podcast for August 26th (number is not given), which is primarily devoted to the NSA domestic spying, Peikoff takes a diametrically opposed position to that of Harry Binswinger, who minimized its importance in an op-ed in Forbes [i think]) and the end of the pod cast he starts talking about the former NSA document leaker, Edward Snowden. Snowden is a great hero to him for revealing the NSA's electronic eavesdropping. He dismisses any damage that might be done by Snowden revealing defense secrets to Russia. In my mind, if Snowden has done this or is likely to do it, that makes him a traitor, Not to Peikoff, who comes up with a convoluted ethical theory that one good deed cancels out any evil deed that that person has done. You have to listen to his explanation, which is near the end of the podcast. By this time, he has gone beyond just sounding agitated to raving, and it is hard to determine whether he understands the implications of this absolution from evil by committing one act that is sufficiently good. Peikoff's new "discovery" or pronouncement, that one good deed absolves the perpetrator from any evil deed he has also done (this is a paraphrase. Listen to his last podcast, near the end, in his discussion of Edward Snowden), is in direct contradiction not only to Rand's position on evil and moral compromise, it is in conflict with Peikoff, himself (see his OPAR, Chapter 8, Virtue (in particular, his section entitled "Integrity as Loyalty to Rational Principles," and pp. 264-267 in that section.). Either he does not remember what he said, or he has now dropped an essential position of Rand. .I am transcribing exactly what he said so that a comparison can be made, and will post it here..
  6. Well, today we have this rather revealing story, "former" KGB/FSB officer, now President of Russia, Vladimir Putin announces that NSA "whistleblower" Edward Snowden can stay in Russia as long as he does not harm our friend, the United States! No, really. Even Putin quickly added that that's a strange comment to be coming from him. Not really. The implications of this decision by Putin to accept Snowden (who apparently has now applied for "asylum" in Russia), and the capitulation of the U.S. government to this development says a lot about all three.
