Eddie Snow­den, Unplugged: Is this the fact that launched a thou­sand ships?

Intro­duc­tion: Begin­ning a long, com­pli­cat­ed analy­sis of the “dis­clo­sures” of Eddie Snow­den, we present an overview of this com­plex event. Eddie the Friend­ly Spook, as we call him, is a spy–an intel­li­gence offi­cer or “spook.” His exploits are a very obvi­ous intel­li­gence oper­a­tion. We will be detail­ing this in weeks to come.

Start­ing with analy­sis of the event, we note that the vast bulk of the infor­ma­tion has been on the pub­lic record for years. Mr. Emory has done pro­grams about NSA hoover­ing up elec­tron­ic com­mu­ni­ca­tions for the bet­ter part of two decades, from open sources.

In addi­tion, we note that Euro­pean intel­li­gence ser­vices, the BND in par­tic­u­lar, do the same thing. Euro­pean out­rage over Snow­den’s so-called “dis­clo­sures” is more than a lit­tle hyp­o­crit­i­cal and disin­gen­u­ous.

Delv­ing into the sub­stance of Snow­den’s Ride–what is known as a “psy-op”–this gam­bit was clear­ly aimed at desta­bi­liz­ing the Pres­i­den­cy of Barack Oba­ma, at one lev­el, and the Unit­ed States at anoth­er.

Com­par­ing “Snow­den’s Ride” to the U‑2 inci­dent, we observe that just before Pres­i­dent Oba­ma’s meet­ing with Mr. Xi, head of state of Chi­na, Snow­den decamps to Hong Kong (in Chi­na) and leaks infor­ma­tion about the hack­ing of Chi­nese com­put­ers. This caused enor­mous embar­rass­ment to Pres­i­dent Oba­ma, and neu­tral­ized any attempt he might have been able to make to reduce Chi­nese hack­ing of Amer­i­can com­put­ers, as well as oth­er points of dis­pute between the two nations.

Next, Snow­den’s leak­er of choice–“Cit­i­zen Green­wald”–pub­lished arti­cles in The Guardian dis­clos­ing exten­sive NSA spy­ing on Ger­many, which the NSA views as “a third class part­ner.” These arti­cles were pub­lished just before Pres­i­dent Oba­ma was to meet with Chan­cel­lor Angela Merkel of Ger­many. Again, it caused enor­mous dam­age to Oba­ma and harmed U.S. rela­tion­ships with Ger­many and oth­er Euro­pean nations. (Note that Green­wald, as an attor­ney, was a fel­low trav­el­er of some of the most heinous and mur­der­ous neo-Nazi and white suprema­cist groups).

Hit­ting the tri­fec­ta, Eddie the Friend­ly Spook [Snow­den] then decamps to Moscow in Rus­sia (like Chi­na, Rus­sia is not renowned as a bas­tion of free speech or inter­net free­dom.) This occurred just before Oba­ma’s meet­ing of the G20 in Moscow and in the run-up to a sched­uled sum­mit con­fer­ence with Putin. That sum­mit con­fer­ence was can­celed.

Snow­den’s trip to Moscow, like his jour­ney to Hong Kong/China could only have been intend­ed to harm Pres­i­dent Oba­ma’s admin­is­tra­tion and the Unit­ed States.

We note, in pass­ing, that Snow­den is no “whistle­blow­er,” either. A whistle­blow­er would have gone to his or her supe­ri­ors first. Snow­den went to the media first, after decamp­ing first to Chi­na and then to Rus­sia, nei­ther of which is a bas­tion of civ­il lib­er­ties, free speech or inter­net free­dom.

Anoth­er major con­sid­er­a­tion in this con­cate­na­tion is the fact that all of the peo­ple and ele­ments in this event track back to the far right and explic­it­ly fas­cist ele­ments, includ­ing Eddie the Friend­ly Spook him­self.

In addi­tion to Cit­i­zen Green­wald, the Wik­iLeaks milieu, inex­tri­ca­bly linked with both Green­wald and Snow­den man­i­fests far-right and Nazi con­nec­tions at every lev­el, although most of Wik­iLeaks’ adher­ents are anarcho/Utopian in their out­look.

Snow­den him­self is an adher­ent to the polit­i­cal phi­los­o­phy espoused by Ron Paul, a vir­u­lent racist and doc­tri­naire fas­cist who has gar­nered a dis­turbing­ly large fol­low­ing. The milieu of Ron Paul and his son Sen­a­tor Rand Paul (a bird of the same feath­er) are also inex­tri­ca­bly linked with the exploits of Eddie the Friend­ly Spook.

Snow­den con­tributed mon­ey to Paul’s 2012 cam­paign.

Most of the mon­ey in Ron Paul’s Super PAC was con­tributed by Peter Thiel, the pri­ma­ry finan­cial under­writer of Palan­tir, the firm that makes the PRISM soft­ware, at the cen­ter of the entire con­tro­ver­sy over Snow­den’s “dis­clo­sures.” (Palan­tir denies this, a claim that does­n’t mer­it seri­ous con­sid­er­a­tion. The notion that NSA and oth­er intel­li­gence ser­vices are using two dif­fer­ent counter-ter­ror soft­ware pro­grams with the same name is ludi­crous. The large tech firms are noth­ing if not liti­gious and there would have been law­suits filed for copy­right and/or patent infringe­ment.)

There is dis­turb­ing evi­dence that Palan­tir itself may be a “Deep Fifth Col­umn” ele­ment of the Under­ground Reich, its hip/progressive veneer notwith­stand­ing.

In the final analy­sis, there is like­ly to be seri­ous and neg­a­tive fall­out from the effects of “Snow­den’s Ride.”

Much of the analy­sis that we will present con­cerns the prob­a­bil­i­ty that a great deal of dam­age will be done to U.S. inter­net com­pa­nies as a result of Snow­den’s activ­i­ties. Ana­lyz­ing Eddie the Friend­ly Spook’s actions as an act of eco­nom­ic war­fare against the Unit­ed States by Ger­many/Under­ground Reich might be the most impor­tant aspect of our analy­sis.

Pro­gram High­lights Include: Dis­cus­sion of the mil­i­tary and intel­li­gence com­mu­ni­ty’s devel­op­ment of ALL of the tech­nolo­gies that peo­ple take for grant­ed in the Inter­net Age; analy­sis of the O.J. Simp­son case and the enor­mous dam­age it did to civ­il lib­er­ties; the BND’s ramp­ing up of its own activ­i­ties; the BND’s use of Snow­den’s Ride as an excuse to de-cou­ple from its agree­ment with the NSA; the EU’s use of Snow­den’s activ­i­ties as an excuse to set up an inde­pen­dent mil­i­tary and intel­li­gence struc­ture to do EXACTLY THE SAME THINGS FOR WHICH IT CRITICIZES THE NSA!; the use of Snow­den’s dis­clo­sures by Rand Paul and his father Ron to dis­cred­it Barack Oba­ma and the Democ­rats in the eyes of young vot­ers.
