When this story broke with the whistle blower Edward Snowden coming out and revealing the massive spying operations going on against Americans and the world I said then that this is all planned. Mr. Snowden did not give us news we had never had before because others had come out officially regarding these intelligence networks and there was not this massive cry in the media over it. Now, it appears Naomi Wolf is expressing her concerns as well. You can either read her words below or watch a youtube video with someone reading them to you with their excellent commentary:
My Creeping Concern that the NSA Leaker Edward Snowden is not who he Purports to be…I hate to do this but I feel obligated to share, as the story unfolds, my creeping concern that the NSA leaker is not who he purports to be, and that the motivations involved in the story may be more complex than they appear to be.This is in no way to detract from the great courage of Glenn Greenwald in reporting the story, and the gutsiness of the Guardian in showcasing this kind of reporting, which is a service to America that US media is not performing at all.It is just to raise some cautions as the story unfolds, and to raise some questions about how it is unfolding, based on my experience with high-level political messaging.
Some of Snowden’s emphases seem to serve an intelligence/police state objective, rather than to challenge them.
a) He is super-organized, for a whistleblower, in terms of what candidates, the White House, the State Dept. et al call ‘message discipline.’ He insisted on publishing a power point in the newspapers that ran his initial revelations. I gather that he arranged for a talented filmmaker to shoot the Greenwald interview. These two steps – which are evidence of great media training, really ‘PR 101′ – are virtually never done (to my great distress) by other whistleblowers, or by progressive activists involved in breaking news, or by real courageous people who are under stress and getting the word out. They are always done, though, by high-level political surrogates.
b) In the Greenwald video interview, I was concerned about the way Snowden conveys his message. He is not struggling for words, or thinking hard, as even bright, articulate whistleblowers under stress will do. Rather he appears to be transmitting whole paragraphs smoothly, without stumbling. To me this reads as someone who has learned his talking points – again the way that political campaigns train surrogates to transmit talking points.
c) He keeps saying things like, “If you are a journalist and they think you are the transmission point of this info, they will certainly kill you.” Or: “I fully expect to be prosecuted under the Espionage Act.” He also keeps stressing what he will lose: his $200,000 salary, his girlfriend, his house in Hawaii. These are the kinds of messages that the police state would LIKE journalists to take away; a real whistleblower also does not put out potential legal penalties as options, and almost always by this point has a lawyer by his/her side who would PROHIBIT him/her from saying, ‘come get me under the Espionage Act.” Finally in my experience, real whistleblowers are completely focused on their act of public service and trying to manage the jeopardy to themselves and their loved ones; they don’t tend ever to call attention to their own self-sacrifice. That is why they are heroes, among other reasons. But a police state would like us all to think about everything we would lose by standing up against it.
d) It is actually in the Police State’s interest to let everyone know that everything you write or say everywhere is being surveilled, and that awful things happen to people who challenge this. Which is why I am not surprised that now he is on UK no-fly lists – I assume the end of this story is that we will all have a lesson in terrible things that happen to whistleblowers. That could be because he is a real guy who gets in trouble; but it would be as useful to the police state if he is a fake guy who gets in ‘trouble.’
e) In stories that intelligence services are advancing (I would call the prostitutes-with-the-secret-service such a story), there are great sexy or sex-related mediagenic visuals that keep being dropped in, to keep media focus on the issue. That very pretty pole-dancing Facebooking girlfriend who appeared for, well, no reason in the media coverage…and who keeps leaking commentary, so her picture can be recycled in the press…really, she happens to pole-dance? Dan Ellsberg’s wife was and is very beautiful and doubtless a good dancer but somehow she took a statelier role as his news story unfolded…
f) Snowden is in Hong Kong, which has close ties to the UK, which has done the US’s bidding with other famous leakers such as Assange. So really there are MANY other countries that he would be less likely to be handed over from… MORE
Please understand that the marketing gurus know exactly where the American psyche is, and how they can manipulate it to achieve their goals. I believe they are trying to start a revolution and we will see other events happen that are meant to push us over the edge and tear apart the system. You must understand, they want the system to come down. I have written blog posts about the new zoo they have ready for us. I have used the metaphor of a slum lord wanting to tear down his old building (system) and build a brand new one (new system) but he has to get all the residents out of his old building via their own free will choice! We will see the economy implode, thousands homeless, a possible pandemic, rogue nuclear strike, and HAARP created weather crisis in any number of combinations. Search this blog for the system coming down. It’s all planned.
For those who are spiritually minded, please realize the danger is real in the physical sense during the systemic destruction of our society /world, but the spiritual danger is what happens in the wake of the ashes. The new peace is the new system. The churches are coming out calling for a united one world spirituality and it’s all for a reason of unifying the world in worshiping the one to come often called the antichrist. The bible tells us that he comes in peacefully and prosperously. Do not be fooled. It won’t last long after that “peacemaker” comes on the scene. It will be about 5 months and it will be destroyed.
For those who have read my posts about biblical timetables and prophecy you know I pick the target year as 2017. You can read that here if you are not aware of the reasons for this. The bible says we are given signs and wonders, and that much of the prophecies are locked up for the final generation. We are figuring it out, but the church has been so overrun with the agents of Satan who have done despicable things for the purpose that it lose it’s credibility. A new church will rise from the ashes and that is the one you don’t want to follow. Now is the time to take spiritual inventory of your own self. We can only choose to walk in a path of love for that is how as Jesus/ Yeshua said the world will know we are his disciples. We won’t stop this destruction from happening, but how we react in it towards one another will show whom we love and serve. Please let the peace of God rest upon you and your house. We have nothing to fear in following the Lord.
