11 June 2013: NSA Whistleblower Snowden
Edward Snowden, somewhere here in Hong Kong having checked out earlier from a “luxury hotel” after dropping his bombshell, has revealed something that is beyond Big, quite possibly enough to impeach the President, and certainly the story of the year if not the century.
I can confirm that Snowden is NOT staying at my flat which is available on Lamma Island to rent. I’d let him stay there but let me emphasis that I’m merely joking. Given Snowden’s astonishing revelations, which I will explain below, the NSA knows this. My flat is probably bugged with micro-cameras which reveal nothing but the slow accumulation of mold (we are bringing in a cleaning lady, and the dehumidifier needs to be turned on).
OK, here’s what’s going on in simple terms.
When I started out, storage inside my employer’s computer was limited to 8000 bytes of RAM. Today I don’t even bother to check this number when buying a new computer since when measured in gigabytes and terabytes (billions and trillions) and networks provide even more storage in the “cloud”, I have virtually infinite storage.
As does the NSA, with interest.
Therefore, as Snowden relates, the NSA decided to record everything about every American citizen, to have videos, sound and text to-hand in the event it needed to discredit and destroy any American such as Bradley Manning, Edward Snowden or Edward G. Nilges for that matter.
This was a contemptuous, a contemptible, a literal, a heinous, an egregious and a direct violation of the Fourth Amendment to the Constitution of the United States:
“The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.”
And the most tragic feature of this conduct is that by sanctioning it, the President has clearly committed an impeachable offense, and should be brought to trial. I have loved this President but by ignoring the NSA’s conduct, Barack Obama may very well restore the Republicans to the Oval Office and Congress, creating a one-party state.
For shame, for shame, for shame.
Basically, the National Security ANSA has pix of me making love to beautiful women because, as Snowden confirms, it doesn’t target, it trawls and, like a whale, ingests EVERYTHING. Then, if it wants to nail me, it can produce the evidence.
