@NBCNewsEXCLUSIVE: The Biden administration is looking at expanding how it monitors social media sites and chatrooms after U.S. intelligence failed to realize classified Pentagon documents circulated online for weeks, officials briefed on the matter say.
These documents are only “explosive” because they explode the lies the Biden Administration has been telling us. But the public doesn’t have the right to the truth; we only have the right to officially-approved propaganda.
Jimmy Dore does an amusing riff about a New York Times CIA stenographer who claims that, unlike the Snowden Wikileaks documents, these documents are really dangerous and really bad. Both he and Glenn Greenwald, whose analysis he cites, emphasize that the CIA is currently trying to downplay what the Snowden leaks revealed. They seem to to think that this effort is only about denigrating the past leaks, which Greenwald is egotistically invested in (having helped Snowden leak the material).
But that’s not why the CIA stenographer is downplaying the importance of the new leaks. The CIA is downplaying the importance of the new leaks because they know that the only group in America that feverishly supports the National Security State are “progressive” neoliberals, and they know that these same progressive neoliberals supported Snowden for leaking Defense Department documents. The left loved those leaks, as they reduced support for the War in Iraq and for Previous Trump, by which I mean George W. Bush.
The security state is now claiming that those leaks were not so damaging and were pretty much okay, because they know their progressive shitlib fans — again, the only bloc in America who still trusts them — thinks those leaks were “helpful.” And they want to provide the shitlibs with an easy mental construct for explaining to themselves why those leaks were good for America, but these new leaks are Right-Wing Terrorism and Literal Genocide.
You know how liberals claim they had a secret respect for pastRepublican presidents, just to establish their credibility in claiming the new Republican president is the Worst Republican President Ever?
They’re doing the same thing with leaks. Oh, the Snowden leaks were empathetic and rational; we can see how some people liked the Snowden leaks. But the new Republican leaker, he’s the Worst Republican Leaker Ever!
The Biden Administration wants the shitlib population of the country demanding that we execute this new leaker, while easing their sense of hypocrisy and inconsistency about supporting Edward Snowden.
Some riots, insurrections, and leaks The Regime supports or tolerates. Some riots, insurrections, and leaks The Regime despises and wants punished by death.
The Regime wants you to know that it’s okay to consider Snowden a hero while frothing at the mouth to get your hands on the new leaker and murder him by ripping his limbs from his body.
And they want to inflame the already maddened shitlibs about this leak, and get them onboard the Biden Administration’s plan to put America under permanent 24-hour-per-day surveillance by AI — he wants to convince them that the Right-Wing Insurrectionary Forces are so menacing that his shitlib supporters will bless his plan to go Full Soviet.
And of course they will.
David French and the rest of the hardcore authoritarians of NeverTrump will be right there to cheerlead for this. They can’t wait for Big Brother.
Big Brother will protect them from the Dangerous Right-Wing Meme-Makers and Twitter shit-posters.
I hate all leaks and leakers. Snowden leaked because he believed what Obama said and then discovered he was a liar. Manning leaked because he was a mentally ill, demented homo. Why did this guy leak? I heard some people discussing why these leaks occur in the US but hardly anywhere else. Why?
Well, consider we now have a generation that has been indoctrinated to hate the racist, imperialistic United States. Then they can’t wait get into a position where they can do some damage to the mean old USA and fight the good fight.
The Patriot Act for the internet combined with the world digital currency, social credit scores.
This fresh faced kid who said to his dad as they frog marched him out of court, “I love you too dad”, damn he probably is christian or something icky like that, burn him at the stake.
But dont think about unsecure blackberry phones, non government servers in some bathroom, Drug addicts on AF1, Imran Awan was Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz’s (D-FL) top information technology aide. Most lawmakers fired Awan in February, but Wasserman Schultz kept him on until he was arrested in July 2017, trying to board a flight for Pakistan. Balloons floating over nuclear facilities.
Security is a damn joke. Its the governments fault, the deepstates fault.
Lets take every bit of privacy away from citizen and illegal in the USA, both digital and financial.
Of course to do this we will need several more bloated departments and the tax dollars to support them, super computers and AI tracking systems. $$$$$$$$$$$$$$
No doubt this kid checked several boxes to be granted access to the highest level of security clearance. I doubt we’ll find out (unless Trump personally approved him) but I would like to know his qualifications and who approved him.
At 21, my grandson had his TS clearance in the Navy. He was in submarines and every time he came home, I would ask questions, as the subs fascinated me. I never asked any technical questions, but even when I asked “what does it sound like when you are at depth?” he would answer that he couldn’t really say. That was his attitude; when in doubt, shut up. But, then again, he has been raised to respect the country and his freedoms.
Your grandson had no access to what they claim this young man allegedly could carry off and no one seem to miss. Simply in the reserves. I dont believe any of it, they convinced many to take an experimental gene therapy injection for the common cold and flu. The boy had zero access to the Pentagon. Trust nothing the government and media pushes.
No, but he respected classified information.
Now, you don’t think this regime would sacrifice a young man just to further the police state, do you?
