Verax!: Bradley Manning II - America's Whistleblower Saga Continues...

Former undercover CIA employee Edward Snowden proves again that America's criminal activity can only go so far...

(SACRAMENTO, CA) - A former undercover CIA employee named Edward Snowden who used the name Verax (Latin for truth-teller) is emerging as the whistleblower who would not stand for the latest intelligence scandal involving Verizon. He tossed this hot potato into the world spotlight, again showing the public the degrading side of American politicians, as they move in a McCarthy-like way, trying to ensnare citizens for connections to "terrorism".

This, while the U.S. government increasingly assumes its place as the lead terror organization of the world with endless support of Israel's ethnic cleansing, illegal wars to destabilize Middle east governments, strike drones, and the circus ring president willing to order the assassination of a 16-year old boy and friends because the kid's father is a suspected terrorist.

That just isn't how America's forefathers envisioned things, I think that is a fair assumption.

Today's Sacramento Bee has the full story, it is mind numbing in a way, to know that America's heart is still staffed by honest people willing to completely throw themselves under the train for the sake of others.

Bradley Manning showed us so much, he revealed the way Americans simply slaughter living, breathing people with their aerial toys, snorting their pleasure at the destruction of human beings they have never and will never see up close.

Nobel Prize Nominee Manning, is at the very top of the list of humanitarians who refuse to accept this behavior on the part of his country. Now Snowden joins the race and perhaps, just maybe... the powers to be, like Obama, will take notice, and realize that their actions of death and war, gun restriction and privacy invasion policies, are not something they will continue to get away with.

It was Sunday night when Snowden revealed in an interview that he was indeed the primary source of informational disclosures of NSA (National Security Administration) documents, revealing what he described, as a systematic surveillance of American citizens.

"I'm not going to hide," Snowden stated to the Washington Post. The Guardian in London also carried information about this whistleblower. Snowden was a tech specialist with the firm, Booz Allen Hamilton. He is currently located in Hong Kong, a favorite spot for international characters trying to keep a reasonable distance between themselves and the U.S. government.

Former NSA official Thomas Drake, is quoted saying, "I consider it a magnificent act of civil disobedience."

Millions of Verizon customers owe Snowden their gratitude, it turns out this whistleblower is a Ron Paul supporter, and that is relatively unsurprising.

For his part, Snowden believes the revelations he made are already making a difference, of course the American government under Barack Obama will continue to clamp down and threaten employees, but I think we are learning that money and fear have little value next to simple honesty, regardless of the consequences. I hope Snowden manages to avoid going into U.S. custody for a very long time.

About 5-6 years ago, I would tell people "if you want to keep your privacy, take your battery out of your cellphone, they are not only recording/possibly listening to your calls, they can even listen when you are not on a call". They thought I was crazy. Well, I guess I wasn't so crazy after all huh? This all comes from the telecommunications act back in the late 1990's and yes, Clinton was part of it. You should read it sometime, this was all planned during the Clinton admin.
Manning did not reveal anything, myself, and many others did not already know, but I am so glad he was brave enough to expose it to mainstream media. His life now in danger. A true patriot.
About 2 years ago I started letting people know that the smart meters being put in will control/watch what you do, all appliances are now being made with microchips to communicate with your tv, washer/dryer, etc. I am yet again a tin foil hat. Maybe more people should wear a tinfoil hat. :-) Seems my "conspiracy theories" have been right all along. This revelation from manning is only a tip of the iceberg.
And how many congress/senate people, supreme court people are being blackmailed thru listening into their phone calls or reading their private emails..Maybe a married senator flirted with a mistress? Maybe Petraes was blackmailed? Something to think about.
My hopes are that the truth about 911, and chemtrails comes out thru whistleblowers next, and dont even get me started on the GMO/Monsanto food takeover.
