Greenwald Courting Conspiracy Theory Market with New “Leak” and a Cass Sunstein Mention

by Scott Creighton

Glenn Greenwald’s new “truth telling” site is up and running and it appears he’s looking to broaden his base by courting the conspiracy theory market.

Aaaaaand as it just so happens, he has a Snowden “leak” readily available to use for just such an occasion. What a coincidence. How convenient for Mr. Greenwald and his new business venture that all of a sudden a new “leak” surfaces which will garner him and his new partners much needed credibility in a growing market.

With CISPA Ready in the Wings, The Manufactured Hero Edward Snowden Psyop is Coming to an End

by Scott Creighton

UPDATE:Snowden VINDICATED!” – Court says program “MAY  have violated 4th amendment… “almost certainly” .   It’s all wrapping up quite nicely, isn’t it? Declare victory and walk away? Snowden bides for political asylum in Brazil

———

Amnesty for the leaked files. That’s the offer being floated out there today. So who exactly has these “keys to the kingdom” anyway? The Washington Post? The Guardian? Glenn “I don’t believe in the coercive nature of money” Greenwald? His boyfriend? Edward “Catch 22″ Snowden (“The spirit gone, man is garbage.”)?

CBS’ “60 Minutes” did a piece on the NSA the other night which is being widely panned as pure propaganda even by members of the MSM. Keep in mind, these “truth telling” voices of reason are largely the same MSM outlets that dutifully parroted government lies in order to push us into an illegal invasion of Iraq, justify regime change bombings in Libya based on more lies about Gaddafi killing his own citizens and supported the fictitious narrative that the “freedom fighters” in Syria were good, hard working, heroic patriots being gassed with chemical weapons from Assad not all that long ago. Pot meet kettle. Kettle, meet pot.

During that 60 Minutes Mockingbirdesque infomercial, aside from basically saying “the NSA is just fine and out there protecting our freedom because the NSA says so”, somewhere along the line they floated the idea of amnesty for “Edward Snowden”

The director of the agency says “no” but, the NSA official leading the task force to assess the damage done by Snowden’s leaks said “maybe” if “Edward Snowden” gives them back the files.

Give them back the files? How the heck could they prep that narrative? What possible set-up could they employ to justify such a “Mission Accomplished” betrayal by the glorious Glenn and the Snowden snow-job?

I’m glad you asked.

Cass Sunstein and CIA Director at Time of the Leak are the Advisers Fixing the “Crisis” Caused by Snowden Psyop

by Scott Creighton

UPDATE: See update at end of article

UPDATE 2: See recent revelations about the Sunstein group’s recommendations. Here’s a hint : keep spying and collecting data.

UPDATE 3: Sunstein group recommended telecom companies collect and hold data themselves. See quote at end of article

UPDATE 4: The NSA can’t tell WHAT “Snowden” took and what he didn’t. Perhaps the ONLY computer in the world where no one can track a user’s history keystroke by keystroke. It’s AMAZING!

“They’ve spent hundreds and hundreds of man-hours trying to reconstruct everything he has gotten, and they still don’t know all of what he took,” a senior administration official said. “I know that seems crazy, but everything with this is crazy.” Press TV

Snowden is invisible in Russia and his task history is invisible in Hawaii. Like the X-Files or something.

——

Sunstein “government can supply these independent experts with information and perhaps prod them into action from behind the scenes,”

The Manufactured Hero Edward Snowden psyop is coming to a dramatic conclusion. While Sibel Edmonds is exposing Glenn Greenwald as the money-grubbing fraud that he is with help from a virtual army of Twitter pit-bulls (keep at it you guys), I happened to run across something new that should help put it all into a slightly clearer perspective.

This latest development along with the good work of Sibel Edmonds on this matter, should make the Manufactured Hero saga of Edward Snowden and Glenn Greenwald perfectly clear as nothing more than a psyop designed to ready the public mind to accept this year’s version of Big Business’ wet-dream… CISPA.

No two ways about it now. No question. We are in deep deep deep doo-doo folks. And Sunstein agent Greenwald is shoveling just as fast as he can.

FLAME WAR! Greenwald VS Edmonds Oh, it’s ON!

by Scott Creighton

UPDATE:  Cass Sunstein and CIA Director at Time of the Leak are the Advisers Fixing the “Crisis” Caused by Snowden Psyop

UPDATE: it should also be pointed out that his new billionaire sugar daddy backs CISPA via PayPal

———–

Glenn Greenwald took exception to Sibel Edmonds’ recent article questioning his “Checkbook Journalism” approach to releasing all those “Edward Snowden Manufactured Hero” leaks he’s been selling here and there.

So Glenn, doing his level best to protect his new “brand” of journalism (worth all of a QUARTER OF A BILLION DOLLARS FINANCED BY HIS BILLIONAIRE GLOBALIST SUGAR DADDY, Pierre Omidyar of Pay Pal ), went after Sibel in his usual way.

(The “Greenwald as hero” brand is worth a lot more than just that quarter of a billion dollars. He’s got a book deal out of “Edward Snowjob” and a movie deal in the works as well (hey, I hope that CIA director who did Zero Dark Thirty does Glenn’s movie. That would be GREAT). If he plays his cards right, Glenn could be a billionaire after leaking all this “truth” to us. BIG MONEY GREENWALD! Working his way up to Arriana Huffington status, huh? No more producing gay porn websites for Daddy Warbucks Greenwald! Hey, maybe he can finally pay off those tax debts)

Well, turns out, some other NSA whistle-blowers contacted Sibel and informed her that it is well known that PayPal had been in bed with the NSA forever and that likely, with 50,000 “leaks”, some of them would have to involve Glenn new investor sugar daddy’s company.

So, why hasn’t “truth teller Greenwald”, all American anti-establishment hero, revealed those “leaks”?

Checkbook Journalism & Leaking to the Highest Bidders

by Sibel Edmunds, Boiling Frogs

Imagine a major government whistleblower who leaks his evidence and obtained documents to the highest bidders in the mainstream media and mega corporations. Does that sound awful, disgraceful and despicable? Okay. Now, imagine a pseudo journalist who obtains over 50,000 documents from a government whistleblower, and then takes some of this information and puts it out for bid, reserves a certain portion for a lucrative book deal, and saves the rest for a mega corporation that has a record of screwing whistleblowers. How does that sound? This is what I mean by the title of this commentary: Checkbook Journalism & Leaking to the Highest Bidders.

For the past twelve years I have been known as one of the most notorious government whistleblowers, even given the title of The Most Classified Person in the History of the United States by a civil liberties organization. I am the founder and director of a whistleblower organization that includes over 150 national security whistleblowers. I have known and represented over 150 national security whistleblowing cases in Congress and the media. And let me tell you this, I have never seen a case that even comes close to this bizarrely unethical and despicable case.

Glenn Greenwald Cashes In: CISPA Backing eBay Founder Sets Him Up with His Own Network

by Scott Creighton

UPDATE: Glenn’s new sugar daddy says we have to “have the debate” about giving up freedom for security: “I think that’s a really important debate to have.”

Those who would trade in their freedom for their protection deserve neither.”

UPDATE: Glenn is teaming up with his Snowjob psyop partner Laura Poitras and controlled opposition specialist Jeremy Scahill on this new project. Huffington, Poitras, Scahill and Greenwald… it’s like the Walmart of fake liberal dissent. One-stop shopping for all your controlled opposition “news”… all they need now is Julian Assange and it’s a monopoly (you just wait. you think I’m kidding? you just wait)

——-

It’s “a very well-funded … very substantial new media outlet…  My role, aside from reporting and writing for it, is to create the entire journalism unit from the ground up by recruiting the journalists and editors who share the same journalistic ethos and shaping the whole thing — but especially the political journalism part — in the image of the journalism I respect most” Glenn Greenwald

“It’s JOURNALISM damn it! I said it 5 times. It’s not opinion shaping propaganda that serves the globalist billionaire’s agenda who bought and paid for it and me and the panties I’m wearing … it’s JOURNALISTIC  journalism and I’m a journalist’s journalist and all the journalists who are respected in the journalism community says so” my interpretation of Glenn Greenwald the “journalist”

Soon you’ll be able to rank Glenn Greenwald up there with Arianna Huffington, Amy Goodman and Oprah as the biggest and richest fake liberal sell-outs to the Business Party this country has ever produced.  For the record, Clinton doesn’t count because he was always a fascist sell-out from day One.

With the help of a billionaire “philanthropist” (who’s main interest is creating “business centered solutions to the political problems in America”.. which ironically, IS THE PROBLEM with America, that’s it’s “business centered”) named Pierre Omidyar (of eBay) , Glenn is leaving his job at the Guardian to start up his own internet network providing “news’ and “journalism” to those people out there starved for more Sunshine Press Productions’ version of the “truth”

“Glenn Greenwald, who has made headlines around the world with his reporting on U.S. electronic surveillance programs, is leaving the Guardian newspaper to join a new media venture funded by eBay founder Pierre Omidyar, according to people familiar with the matter.” Reuters

The opportunity is just so wonderful, according to Greenwald, no journalist could ever pass it by. Well, I guess that depends on what you call “journalism” Glenn.

Guardian and Greenwald Jump the Shark With Live Chat Interview with Edward Snowden

by Scott Creighton

In what has got to be the most obvious “jump the shark” moment in modern journalism, Glenn Greenwald and the Guardian announced this morning at 9 am eastern that there would be a live chat interview with their fabricated hero Edward Snowden starting at 11 eastern.

It was a credibility infomercial that their little psyop desperately needed considering so many on the left and the right are starting to smell a rat.( See Naomi Wolf ) Imagine Glenn Greenwald in a leather jacket on water-skis flying over a pen with a fake shark in it and you get the picture.

The Real Story Behind the Spying Program: Privatized Hit Lists for Our New Neoliberal Totalitarian State

by Scott Creighton

As I have written before, this is not about catching terrorists before they strike. They have been scoping up your personal data and communications for over a decade knowing full well that you aren’t a terrorist while so-called “terrorist” attacks and lone-wolf mass casualty events occur on a regular basis. The American Gladio operation is well underway as the neoliberalization of America proceeds on schedule.

This isn’t about collecting information to protect us from the terrorists, the people collecting the data and putting it to use are the terrorists.

This is a modern day version of every neoliberalization program the CIA, Chamber of Commerce, the Chicago Boys and the IMF have ever run with a slight twist: privatization. This is about collecting the names of those who will be a problem in the future when the brick of our economic reforms slams down on this country once and for all. It’s about a massive algorithm program that takes all your information in and predicts who the trouble-makers will be. It’s about creating a modern day death squad hit-list for our new totalitarian state and nothing more.

Below are two quick quotes from scholarly articles about two supposedly separate moments in time which are actually connected by a long process of gradual usurpation and unconstitutional power grabbing.

They are the crux of what I have been warning about since I started this website almost 6 years ago to the day.

Why I Can No Longer Defend Glenn Greenwald as Merely a Dupe in the Snowden Psyop

by Scott Creighton

On a pleasant Sunday afternoon, sitting comfortably in his home in Rio de Janeiro with a nifty little green-screen at his back (what self respecting journalist doesn’t have one of those), Glenn Greenwald admitting he was well aware of his star witness’ potentially fatal character flaws prior to publishing his overly hyped article on NSA “secrets” that the world already knew about. Glenn then deliberately misrepresented the nature and scope of the NSA’s spying program and perhaps  inadvertently offered up a glimpse of the real motivation behind the Snowden Psyop for anyone who cared to listen.

Over the past week and a half that I have been covering this story, my position has been that Glenn was probably just fed a bit of information on some knew “Deepthroat” type whistle-blower and the promise of a Big Story … something on the lines of his work back in 2006 on the first (and the real) spying scandal leak when he went from being an obscure blogger to the toast of the town in the alternative media. I figured he was probably a dupe who had been set-up by his own paper, the Guardian, in order to lend this Snowden psyop some more credibility and in the end, to destroy a journalist viewed as the “professional left”.  I concluded that Greenwald was not an active participant in the overall psyop strategy.

I cannot in good faith support that conclusion any longer.

Manufactured Hero Edward Snowden: Glenn Greenwald Goes “Full Retard”

by Scott Creighton

UPDATE: Salon Calls Me an “Edward Snowden Truther”

UPDATE: The Missing Motive of the Snowden Psyop: CISPA (yes… CISPA)

The other day I wondered if the Guardian set Glenn up for a fall on this one. I figured maybe they told him they vetted this new NSA whistle-blower and sent him off to Hong Kong to meet a high-school drop-out with his Rubic’s Cube in what appeared to be a secret meeting scenario written by the former writing staff of Get Smart. Turn’s out I wasn’t far off…

“Thus far we have revealed four independent programs: the bulk collection of telephone records, the PRISM program, Obama’s implementation of an aggressive foreign and domestic cyber-operations policy, and false claims by NSA officials to Congress. Every one of those articles was vetted by multiple Guardian editors and journalists – not just me. Democratic partisans have raised questions about only one of the stories – the only one that happened to be also published by the Washington Post (and presumably vetted by multiple Post editors and journalists) – in order to claim that an alleged inaccuracy in it means our journalism in general is discredited.” Glenn Greenwald

Yes Mr. Greenwald, when you make an inaccurate statement in your article, your journalism is discredited. If you come out backing some sudden NSA whistle-blower as the next Daniel Elsburg and then it turns out he’s a high school drop-out flake with no real intel to speak of, your really going to be discredited. And unfortunately I fear you don’t really understand that is why you and the filmmaker, the Academy Award-nominated Laura Poitras, were specifically requested by the career NSA employee and manufactured hero… in case you hadn’t figured that out yet.

Top Ten Issues I Have with the Manufactured Hero Edward Snowden Story

by Scott Creighton

The wheels are starting to come off  (H/T boomerang) … just a bit.

While the two biggest frauds from the right and the left, Glenn Beck and Michal Moore, parrot the status quo line telling their supporters to think of Edward Snowden as a “hero” (you will think as we tell you), more and more real people are starting to ask questions about our new manufactured hero’s story.

The tale Edward Snowden recounted to Glenn Greeenwald doesn’t seem to add up. That’s not too say that we shouldn’t all be very concerned and even angry about massive spying programs being run by contractors on behalf of our “national interests”… we should be damn angry about that… and that’s not too say we shouldn’t be fighting for the protections of our civil liberties and constitutional rights, but unfortunately it looks like Glenn and many others may have fallen for something here. What it is just yet, we can’t be clear, but as the song goes, somethin is happenin here.

It’s Conspiracy Theory No More – Greenwald References Church Committee on MSM

Attendees from Intelligence Conference Joke About “Disappearing” Glenn Greenwald for NSA Article – John Negroponte Had Attended Conference

(For those of you who know who John Negroponte is and what he did in Central America and later in Iraq, this is certainly a bad omen. Negroponte created death squads everywhere he went, “disappearing” untold thousands of troublemakers in various countries we had neoliberalized. And here we are…)

from The Huffington Post

Leading foreign policy analyst Steve Clemons said he witnessed a rather disturbing conversation while waiting for a flight at the Dulles airport on Saturday.

According to Clemons, four men sitting near him were discussing an intelligence conference they had just attended, and turned to the topic of the NSA leaks. One said that both the reporter and leaker should be “disappeared,” a term used to describe secret murders and abductions carried out by authoritarian governments. Clemons said on Twitter the suggestion seemed to be “bravado” and a “disturbing joke.” He said that the officials were talking loudly, “almost bragging.”

HuffPost asked Clemons via Twitter how he could be sure they were in the intelligence community and he noted that “one wore a white knit national counterterrorism center shirt.” But more importantly, he said, the conversation led him to conclude that they were certainly in the community, especially given the conference they talked about attending. They discussed former Ambassador John Negroponte as having been in attendance.

The US Government Has Constructed a Ubiquitous Surveillance State

(In keeping with the article I just posted about how the Reagan White House helped the fascist state in Guatemala set up death squads and in understanding what the government did in conjunction with the brutally murderous state of Indonesia and so many others, here is a little current events note to make you think about the VERY NEAR future this country is racing to meet)

Well, Hat’s Off to the Mockingbirds! Atlantic “Journalist” Praises “Dark Thirty” for Colluding with CIA before Admitting He’s a Mockingbird Himself

by Scott Creighton

I was listening to a debate (and by “debate” I don’t mean a raving screeching Alex Jones trying to make our side look bad on national TV in order to make Bloomberg and Dershowitz look reasonable by comparison) between the Guardian’s Glenn Greenwald and the Atlantic’s Mark Bowden on the subject of the CIA written and produced “Zero Dark Thirty” this morning when this little tidbit jumped out at me; Bowden admitted to being a CIA Mockingbird during the interview.
