I have been saying this for years, long before Obama or Bush took office … sometime between Bush Sr and Clinton’s reign.  

The United States of America is the most corrupt country on the planet.  This isn’t just from recent years activities and events, but a cycle of hate, fear and forced dominion over those who have been weak, an easy target, and held beliefs or interests contrary to ours.  The definition of “Ours” meaning a description of anyone who is running, in support of and/or aspiring to be the establishment.

Interestingly enough, the revelations of Edward Snowden shows a stark contrast between Obama the candidate, where he praised whistle blowers vs. Obama the President who has taken the lead in prosecuting, well, call them what you will.  Gone are the calls for protection of whistle blowers, replaced by taking the lead, high score if you will, in number of people prosecuted under the Espionage Act of 1917 than all previous presidents combined.

Zealous in their having to be right, the Obama administration’s scorched earth behaviour is down right scary.  It wasn’t too long ago, 20 or so years, that I read about similar tactics employed by the likes of Stalin, the Stasi, and countless God-less communist regimes that we as Americans have been opposed to for so many years.  Don’t take my word for it, read a couple recent examples:

  • Revoking a US Passport and violating the process to do so, you know that due diligence in following established procedures.  Yeah, didn’t happen in Snowden’s case.
  • Exercising influence to force a nation state leader’s private plane to divert flight path when President Morales’ (Bolivia) plane was diverted over fears that Snowden was aboard.  If this were to happen to Airforce One, any guesses on the number of casualties that would have been incurred by the fighter plane escort?  Knowing the US track record, this would have led to another invasion and third, or is fourth, maybe fifth armed conflict the US would start.
  • Going all Jr. High and refusing to meet with a Putin because Obama’s feel bads are hurt.  Never mind the fact we do not have a legally binding signed extradition treaty with Russia.  But hey, facts only matter when it benefits our establishment, not theirs.
  • A developer of a secure email application choosing to shutter his site and business instead of becoming blindly “complicit in committing crimes against the American people.”
  • Silent Circle preemptively shutters their email encryption service to avoid National Security Letters and forced coercion, er cooperation, with spying on Americans. 
  • I know, I know, we have nothing to hide so long as we are not doing anything illegal.  Our government is benign with respect to its citizens right? 

    Meh. 

    Tell that to Thomas Drake, former senior executive of the N.S.A who went public with tales of financial waste, never shared any classified secrets, and was stripped of his clearance and works at an Apple store just to make ends meet. 

    Or

    Aaron Swartz as you put flowers on his grave.  His crime, violating a terms of service agreement.  More accurately, embarrassing the U.S. Government. So next time you install an application or join a web site/service and blindly click through the Terms of Service and/or End User License Agreement and not follow it fully to the letter, beware.  A Federal prosecutor is ready to pounce and destroy you, your livelihood, family, friends and associates all in the name of one Nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.

    Or locally,  

    An unarmed, 21 year old, women gunned down by two West Valley police officers ruled unjustified.  

    So next time you think you’re being watched.  There is probably something to that feeling …

    In closing, be safe out there and may the odds be forever in your future.
