Snowden pardon petition reaches 100,000

Post  Anti Federalist on Mon Jun 24, 2013 8:02 pm

A White House petition calling for the pardoning of National Security Agency leaker Edward Snowden has surpassed the 100,000 signatures it needs for an official response.

http://thehill.com/blogs/blog-briefing-room/news/307361-white-house-petition-to-pardon-snowden-crosses-threshold#ixzz2X9MffDA1

More than 111,000 people had signed the petition as of midday Monday. The petition requests “a full, free, and absolute pardon for any crimes he [Snowden] has committed or may have committed related to blowing the whistle on secret NSA surveillance programs,” and refers to him as a “national hero.”

A petition on the White House's “We the People” website needs 100,000 signatures in the first month of being posted to earn an official administration response.

A tense international manhunt is underway for Snowden, who revealed classified documents detailing the NSA’s surveillance of phone and internet traffic.

The 30-year-old former government contractor fled from Hong Kong to Moscow on Sunday to avoid a U.S. extradition request and is waiting to hear whether he’ll be granted political asylum in Ecuador. He faces federal charges on espionage and theft of government property.

In every stage of these Oppressions We have Petitioned for Redress in the most humble terms: Our repeated Petitions have been answered only by repeated injury. A Prince, whose character is thus marked by every act which may define a Tyrant, is unfit to be the ruler of a free people.

We don't know what Snowden's been telling [or forced-to-tell] the Chinese or Russians.

Let's not be too quick to "celebrate" THIS Whistle-blower.

I don't agree with the kitty cat.   I think this guy is being treated unfairly.  I am sure they will come out with all sorts of lies about what he did or is doing, but I won't believe them.

WASHINGTON — On-the-run leaker Edward Snowden admits he took a job with consulting firm Booz Allen Hamilton solely to get access to the National Security Agency’s trove of information.

“My position with Booz Allen Hamilton granted me access to lists of machines all over the world the NSA hacked,” Snowden told the South China Morning Post in a June 12 interview published yesterday.

 “That is why I accepted that position about three months ago.”

Asked again if he went to Booz Allen specifically to gather evidence of surveillance, Snowden readily owned up to his premeditated plan: “Correct on Booz.”

He claimed his intention was to collect information about the NSA hacking into “the whole world” and “not specifically Hong Kong and China.”

Lawmakers said the admission puts Snowden in a legal jam if he ever is hauled back to the States.

“It’s evidence of intent, and it’s relevant to the sentencing if he were convicted,” said Sen. Carl Levin (D-Mich.), chairman of the Senate Armed Services Committee and a lawyer.

“It looks like he had a plan . . . when he went there to acquire information and divulge it,” said Sen. Richard Shelby (R-Ala.), a former Intelligence Committee member and a lawyer. “It showed intent, big intent. You can’t prejudge the case, but that’s strong talk.”

LOL @ people still defending the Evil Empire.

Any damage that Snowden could do vis a vis the Chinese is inconsequential compared to what our own government did, financing the banksters debt with Chinese loans.

Here are a few easy rules.

1 - Disregard anything from the government propaganda organs. (That's the US press.)

2 - Disregard anything from the government itself.

3 - Truth is treason in the empire of lies.

Nuts...meant to quote NH's sig line:

...I’m more worried about Democrats spying on me than the Soviet Union...



An authoritarian police state is a small price to pay for living in a free country.

AF said ... "An authoritarian police state is a small price to pay for living in a free country."

Does that mean you think a strong police force is necessary to maintain a free country AF?

I won't watch any of it.

I'm not clear on what your reply means. I think you intend to brand "The Republic" as entirely corrupt. There are the "good guys" in Congress who don't have the audience of TV reporters concerned with "The American Way".

Like the IRS, Obama has "jumped the shark" with NSA in a way never intended. I'm personally grateful this has come out, as the Democrats will be disclosed as the Marxists they are. But...

---------------------------------------------

IF this whistleblower gets an advance of $6-Million for a book titled My Ordeal, would you modify your stance?

No, it is simply a twist on words, to illustrate the "Freedom is Slavery" mindset of too many people.

We have a fully militarized standing army of police, keeping us under a surveillance blanket that would have made the NKVD or Stasi drool and a prison complex that has more people in it than any other country on earth.

We have established as a matter of law, that a US citizen can be executed without due process simply on the Chief Executive's say so.

And descending from that major tyranny, we have a labyrinthe maze of rules and regulations that must be complied with on a daily basis, that regulates us right down to what kind of light bulb we are allowed to have and how much water our toilet can hold. Violation of any of these millions of rules will result in heavy handed enforcement and you will join the millions in the prison GULAG noted above.

And in a week or so we will shoot off fireworks and drink beer and proclaim how "free" we are.

Brother, we've "known" each other for a long time now.

Never intended?

I hate to keep harping on this, but I told you ten years ago, when Bush was setting all this up post 9/11 (remember "Total Information Awareness"? The program they told everybody was shut down...yeah, that one) where it would all end up. (and Clinton after OKC and Poppa Bush after whatever his excuse was)

And I told you how loud you would howl when a democrat got their hands on this evil system.

Here we are.

To answer your question, no, I hope he could make $60 million.

The reality is The Empire will get its hands on him, and send him off to a horrible fate, forgotten and unsung.

And the American people will yawn and change the channel.
