Meet Sharon Weinberger: The Intercept’s New “National Security” Editor and Former Dov S. Zakheim Associate

by Scott Creighton (H/T tommyknocker1)

A little while ago I wrote about Matt Taibbi leaving the employ of billionaire Pierre Omidyar. Since then I have reported on Matt’s refusal to address his split with Omidyar’s company, First Look Media, which also owns Glenn Greenwald’s limited hangout / propaganda vehicle, the Intercept.

I can’t, I can’t, I can’t talk about [Omidyar] unfortunately,” “I really shouldn’t comment… No matter what my feelings toward First Look Media, I don’t think it’s appropriate to talk about my former employers.” Matt Taibbi

It’s well known that Omidyar teamed up with the CIA linked USAID and funded a number of regime change NGOs in Ukraine and now he has one of his employees, Svitlana Zalishchuk, a person who headed up many of those color revolution engines, “elected” to office in the country. It should be noted that all that “freedom and democracy” they talked about bringing to Ukraine is ending up with the Ukrainian parliament  now instituting legalized slavery on their own people.

In a follow-up article, I mentioned the fact that Omidyar and Greenwald were headed to Google’s Newsgeist conference where they will learn how to mold the future of alternative “news” sites. I also exposed the Omidyar Network’s long history of globalist activity and partnership with the CIA.

Greenwald says that he and Omidyar plan to finally meet later this month, when they will appear at a very different sort of gathering: an invite-only event called Newsgeist, co-sponsored by Google and the Knight Foundation. Billed as an “unconference,” it has no agenda other than “reimagining the future of the news.” Andrew Rice

I also mentioned, that Pierre Omidyar has a new deal in the works with the CIA’s USAID. It’s a 300 million dollar project aimed at mixing Pierre’s personal brand of “charitable aims” with the raw power of the CIA. Nifty, huh? The fund, the Global Innovation Fund, will be headquartered in London of course.

The fund, which will be based in London, is looking for fresh ways to tackling problems that trump existing approaches. Inside Philanthropy

Mr. Omidyar helped spearhead what’s now called “venture philanthropy” by mixing Silicon Valley entrepreneurship with charitable aims. His projects include a $100-million microfinance fund and a just-announced $200-million Global Innovation Fund, established in partnership with the U.S. Agency for International Development. Philanthropy.com

I tell you all of that so I can tell you this: Glenn’s Intercept has a new editor. Her name is Sharon Weinberger and you will not believe the connections this woman has. Anyone who still thinks Greenwald, First Look and the Intercept are “outsiders” is a fool. The Intercept is nothing more than a “hearts and minds” operation disguised as independent media and Omidyar’s hiring of Sharon Weinberger proves that beyond any lingering doubt.

Matt Taibbi Quits Pierre Omidyar Controlled Opposition “News” Site – First Look Media Tries to Smear Taibbi’s Reputation With Unfounded Rumors

by Scott Creighton

UPDATE: please see update at end of article

UPDATE 2: Ah. It would appear Taibbi is going to play the safe card and remain quiet about the split with First Look Media and their color revolution backing Omidyar.  Did you guys know Matt was a legacy baby? I did not know that. His father is a career “journalist” with NBC “News”

—–

“Over the weekend, Taibbi reached the conclusion that his relationship with Omidyar, Temple, and Ching had become irreversibly poisoned, and that no agreement would shield him and Racket from their ongoing involvement and interference.”

Fake “journalist” Glenn Greenwald finds himself dancing on razor blades these past few days. That’s what you get when you sell out so I’m not sympathetic.

As most of you know, I call Glenn #BillionairesBitch because he sold out to billionaire and Ukraine color revolution backer, Pierre Omidyar when he agreed to rent lend his product recognition to the globalist’s new “news” sites which he hoped he would be able to turn into another Huffington Post. Of course, all Glenn needed to bring to the table was his pretend “alternative” viewpoint and of course, all those “leaks” from the Snowden Psyop.

To get his hands on the controls of a 1/4 billion dollar start-up, Glenn was all too happy to jump right in with both feet. He got to immediately be big man on campus while he allowed the dimwitted left to present him as a hero for pretending Edward Snowden was a real whistle-blower.  You see, this is the transition they all dream of, those close to real power and wealth… this was his big break. No more reporting on them, siding up to them, being an outsider looking in like a sycophantic freshmen. No, this was his chance to join “The Big Club” as Carlin once so eloquently put it.

I’m not going to go over all of that with you guys again. Glenn “Hairy Studs” Greenwald is what he is.

But today, he’s having to walk a very fine line. Credibility on one side, sugar daddy on the other.  Oh, what a tangled web we weave…

Watch Me Decimate Glenn Greenwald’s Transparent “antiwar” Spin on Obama and ISIS™

by Scott Creighton

Full disclosure: my feelings on the subject of Glenn Greenwald are well established, well founded and already well understood by most readers on this site.

Like every other self-absorbed phony opposition leader, Glenn is nothing more than a #BillionairesBitch trying to pass as a hero of the people. He makes me sick.

James “limited-hangout baby” Bamford Does His Thing with Edward Snowden

by Scott Creighton

UPDATE: Steve Watson of the Prison Planet Watson Di$info Twins, has written an uncritical review of Mr. “Limited Hangout Baby” Bamford’s propaganda. Go figure. Remember, you can always tell a psyop by the company it keeps.

——

Unlike before with The Puzzle Palace, this time the NSA cooperated with Bamford. Alarmed by Hollywood films like Enemy of the State that portrayed his agency as a ruthless cadre of assassins, the director of the NSA, Lt. Gen Michael V. Hayden, wanted the American public to have a more accurate picture of how the NSA functioned. In order to encourage better communication between the NSA and the press, Hayden granted Bamford unprecedented access to Crypto City (the NSA campus in Ft. Meade, MD), senior NSA officials, and thousands of NSA documents while he researched Body of Secrets. The NSA even hosted a book signing for Bamford on the grounds of Crypto City. It lasted more than four hours as hundreds of NSA employees lined up to have their copies of Body of Secrets autographed. (Ibid., Bamford’s profile from Random House)

James “limited-hangout baby” Bamford is a fraud as is the manufactured hero Edward Snowden.

It was only a matter of time before the NSA’s first manufactured whistle-blower was assigned the task of passing the proverbial torch to “Snowden” which is exactly what he has done in a new Wired magazine interview and accompanying Conde Nast promotional video.

I was trained as a spy in sort of the traditional sense of the word, in that I lived and worked undercover, overseas — pretending to work in a job that I’m not — and even being assigned a name that was not mine... What they are trying to do is that they are trying to use one position to distract from the totality of my experience, which is: I’ve worked for the Central Intelligence Agencyundercover, overseas, I’ve worked for the National Security Agency – undercover, overseas, and I’ve worked for the Defense Intelligence Agency as a lecturer at the joint counter-intelligence training,” “Edward Snowden” from RT

Wall Street Teams Up with U.S. Intelligence Cronies in Bid to Form Fascist “Cyber War Council”

by Michael Krieger , Liberty Blitzkrieg

Want to hear the worst idea in the history of horrible ideas? How about we take the industry responsible for destroying the U.S. economy and wrecking the lives of tens of millions of people, and then allow it to create a “government-industry cyber war council.”

It appears that trillions in taxpayer bailouts simply wasn’t enough for Wall Street. Recognizing that it can seemingly get whatever it wants whenever it wants, the industry is now positioning itself to overtly control U.S. “cyber” policy. What could go wrong?

Merging of private business and government. Fascism

Or they could get involved in strikes against U.S. citizens they find undesirable or problematic.” Alan Greyson

Glenn Greenwald’s Carefully Contrived “Big List” of Spied on Americans Totals 5 Neoliberal Muslims

by Scott Creighton

As promised, Glenn Greenwald has finally come out with his “Big List” of Americans spied on by the NSA and others.

It’s total BS and it’s only five people… five politically connected neoliberal Muslims. ಠ_ಠ

“The five Americans whose email accounts were monitored by the NSA and FBI have all led highly public, outwardly exemplary lives.” Greenwald

You will soon understand what Glenn Greenwald considers “exemplary”

He claims that there were only another 202 “U.S. persons” identified on the “Big List” by email addresses only (which they blacked out of course) making it “impossible” to identify them by name (perhaps he could have sent them an email?)

“The vast majority of individuals on the “FISA recap” spreadsheet are not named. Instead, only their email addresses are listed, making it impossible in most cases to ascertain their identities. Under the heading “Nationality,” the list designates 202 email addresses as belonging to “U.S. persons,” 1,782 as belonging to “non-U.S. persons,” and 5,501 as “unknown” or simply blank. The Intercept identified the five Americans placed under surveillance from their email addresses” Greenwald

Are we really supposed to believe that he could ONLY identify these five politically linked, neoliberal Muslims in his “Big List’ of people spied on by the NSA?

You might notice something else… the list shows that ALL of the surveillance ended prior to Obama taking office.

These are the five he mentions by name and this is how he lists them in the first part of his “groundbreaking” article:

  • Faisal Gill, a longtime Republican Party operative and one-time candidate for public office who held a top-secret security clearance and served in the Department of Homeland Security under President George W. Bush;
  • Asim Ghafoor, a prominent attorney who has represented clients in terrorism-related cases;
  • Hooshang Amirahmadi, an Iranian-American professor of international relations at Rutgers University;
  • Agha Saeed, a former political science professor at California State University who champions Muslim civil liberties and Palestinian rights;
  • Nihad Awad, the executive director of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), the largest Muslim civil rights organization in the country.

But there is another way to list them, a more accurate way, which tends to cast a little doubt on the authenticity of his “Big List”:

Manufactured Hero “Snowden”: Greenwald Reneges and Cryptome Cashes in as the New CISPA Approaches

by Scott Creighton

With the new CISPA (CISA) ready and waiting in the wings, Glenn Greenwald’s recent promise to release details on exactly who the government has been spying on couldn’t have been timed any better… for some… not so much for those STILL being spied on all this time. Didn’t hurt the sale of his new book either, I suppose, which hit the stands on May 13th.

“Milking every red cent he can from his CIA-op “Edward Snowden” leaks, the billionaire’s b*tch, Glenn Greenwald has promised to finally release actual names of people, activists, political critics, writers and groups being illegally and unconstitutionally spied on by the federal government in tandem with various globalist corporate conglomerates.

You think he might have led with that story a year ago in order to help stop the madness, right? To let all those people and organizations know everything they are saying and writing is being harvested so they can take appropriate personal or legal action that will protect them, right? wrong.” me, May 30

Last night Glenn Tweeted that he was going to publish his big story at midnight on his billionaire-backed website, The Intercept. The masses (and the masses of obvious influence peddling bots) were all in a frenzy. FINALLY Big Glenn was going to be the hero he has been marketing himself to be. That would silence all those Snowden Truthers and Greenwald Detractors out there!

But then… 8 hours later… came the renege:
