The NSA’s Prism program and the vilification of Whistle-blowers like Ed Snowden and William Binney draw stark parallels to the witch hunts for ‘heretics’ in mid-evil times
(INTELLIHUB) — The revelation of the NSA’s Prism Program by whistle-blower Ed Snowden highlights the blatant usurpation of our God given rights. In the past two days I’ve heard every argument under the sun supporting the Government’s case to spy on the American people. I was absolutely stunned (for a split second) when the Pew Research poll came out where 56% of Americans support the Orwellian surveillance state in the name of safety, unaware that the real terrorists are the ones that are supposed to be serving them.
In “Chapters of My Autobiography” Mark Twain aptly wrote: “There are lies, damn lies, and statistics.” A great example of that is the statistic that 100% of cancer patients drink water. A very deceptive statistic, but a great illustration of how statistics can be used to manipulate the facts. If people knew the facts about terrorism instead of the statistics fed to them by the mainstream media and their facilitators in Washington, they would have a very different opinion about the repeated violation of our natural rights.
We are commonly fed the line “We need to take the fight to the terrorists” or “We’re in Afghanistan, Africa, and the Middle East to defend our freedom”, but how free are we? According to the Heritage Foundation’s ‘Freedom Index’, we rank 10th in the world in freedom. Countries like Hong Kong (ranked #1), Singapore (#2), Chile (#7) and Mauritius (#8) rank ahead of the United States in freedom. How did we ever get to this point?
Our non-representing representatives, and the majority of our civil servants are being willfully ignorant of the oath that they swore to the American people:
“I, [name], do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which I am about to enter. So help me God.” 5 U.S.C. §3331
Note that nowhere in the oath does it say to support and defend the President, or Congress, or anyone else. It is an oath to support and defend the Constitution. To rightfully execute the duties and responsibilities endowed to you by the American people as a civil servant takes a tremendous amount of courage, honor, and integrity. These are traits that have clearly been intentionally removed from our society through the drugging of our children, the poisoning of our foods, the hijacking of our education system, and the looting of our wealth.
I even overheard a co-worker call Ed Snowden a ‘traitor’ for exposing the Prism Program because it “compromises national security”. Hmmmm… waging illegal wars, or decimating our manufacturing sector, or devaluing our fiat currency, or racking up tremendous debt doesn’t have anything to do with compromising national security does it? The fact is Ed Snowden and all of the whistle-blowers out there that speak out against these CRIMES are heroes. Much like the ‘Reformers’ during medieval times, they are being persecuted for the TRUTH.
People who spoke out against the doctrine of the Catholic church, and encouraged the masses to read the Bible instead of having it read to them by priests were often labeled heretics, tortured and executed. Sound familiar? It truly is interesting how history repeats itself.
We are just now starting to see the persecution of our modern day “Reformers” and it will get worse. In December 2011, I exposed FEMA’s Continuity of Government program and broke down what it meant. This program establishes the creation of a domestic “Red Force/Blue Force” transponder ID program that is only reserved for warfare outside of the United States. Who are they planning to go to war with within the United States? Why is it necessary to establish a program like that? Is our government fearful of a foreign invasion or do they fear something else?
I will be discussing this with Alex Jones on InfoWars Nightly News tonight, because it is my duty to do so. We live in perilous times, where truth is REALLY stranger than fiction. The solution to this problem is for all people to find their courage and their voice and speak out against these egregious intrusions of our privacy and rights and take action. We need to demand transparency from all of our civil servants from the top on down and hold them accountable for their actions. It starts out as political persecution and denial of rights, but when the collapse comes it will mean life or death.
