Everybody’s A Traitor!June 11th, 2013 at 2:03 pm by Brian
Strong words, from flappy-jowled, aching pussy of an excuse for a man:
House Speaker John Boehner today called NSA leaker Edward Snowden a “traitor” who put Americans at risk by releasing classified information to the media.
“He’s a traitor,” the highest ranking Republican in the House of Representatives said in an extensive interview with ABC News’ George Stephanopoulos. “The disclosure of this information puts Americans at risk. It shows our adversaries what our capabilities are. And it’s a giant violation of the law.”
Disclosing to a foreign media source that every American citizen and business phone has been tapped, including Congress and the Supreme Court and anyone in the world who has communicated to them by the most corrupt administration in history is treason. The actual tapping of those phones and e-mails is not treason without suspicion or probable cause?
Did no one watch the tv-show The Wire? The police had to keep turning their “wire” off every few minutes because even with a warrant they were only allowed to listen for a set period of time. That was for fucking criminals. It was to be expanded for terrorists after 9/11 but I recall no conversations or debates on the Senate floor about extending warrantless wiretaps against US citizens with no involvement in terrorism in perpetuity. That is the definition of a police state.
As if on queue, if I’m to believe the P.U. Center’s polling then 56% of Americans think tapping our phones is A-OK. And that’s not treason.
Clearly, the solution to this “giant violation of the law” is to simply change the law. Maybe something to protect whistleblowers. Call it a Whistleblower Protection Act.
I do not know if Edward Snowden is a traitor. I know that I don’t consider the disclosure of information to a newspaper that can still guard that information in the same way that I would Bradley Manning’s transfer of raw information to Wikileaks that definitely resulted in people who were cooperating with US authorities in warzones being killed. Clearly, he has an ego the size of his Hawaii love nest and the moral flexibility of his contortionist girlfriend. But once again, the government created it’s own traitor. At $200k a year for a high school dropout who washed out from the military.
But my phone needs to be tapped.
Just like the looming Grand Bargain on Amnesty for Illegal Aliens. Americans have been put at risk. Every child sex offending, drunk driving, drug dealing murderous immigrant from Mexico’s filthy shores is already on our doorstep and Boehner’s solution is to give them citizenship, an Obamaphone and an EBT card because of living in the shadows or something. And a fine. Because someone who’s going on welfare has a bunch of back taxes in their other pantalones.
Now go vote for me! That other guy was gonna give you everything and no back taxes but vote for me anyway because I did you a solid.
10 year old girls can buy an abortion pill over the counter without question but I have to present a valid Drivers License and sign my name in a drug offender registry to buy a 24 pack of Sudafed during allergy season.
Seriously. This country is too fucking stupid to survive.
