Is the "Where's Waldo-Snowden" Debacle a Gift to the BHO BADministration? [Update!]

In my previous post about whistle blower Edward Snowden, I linked to Trevor Louden's New Zeal Blog essay which shared an Exclusive!!! NSA Leaks Journalist Glenn Greenwald, Addressed a Marxist-Leninist Conference

After reading that article, I thought to myself...hmmm...could it be possible that Snowden is actually on the ObaMARXIST BADministration's side?  Why would he go to a journalist who is a Marxist-Leninist supporter?  Obama and his ilk support Marxism.  Plus, there seems to be confusion on both the left and right side of the political spectrum regarding whether or not Snowden is a hero or a traitor. 

So... is he currently (now, not-so-secretly) being used purposely as a distraction FOR the BHO BADministration in order to keep all of the other scandals off of the public radar and gone from the front page news?

Well, a writer over at Da Tech Guy Blog.com sheds some new light upon the situation.

He tackles the idea that perhaps Snowden is actually a "gift" to the BADministration!

The author of the article lists several reasons why he thinks that the "where's Waldo-Snowden" debacle is helping BHO and his ilk:

1. It Keeps the Focus on Snowden rather than the NSA

2. It gives the press a reason to defend the Administration.

3. It divides Libertarians and Republicans further.

4a. It keeps the other scandals off the front page….

4b…and gives the White House Political Room

Excerpt from 4a. It keeps the other scandals off the front page….…and Snowden’s flight is a Gift to the Obama Administration & MSM:

Peggy Noonan wrote one of the most provocative pieces on the Tea Party IRS scandal by a mainstream journalist that has been written to this point:
More: “The bottom line is that the Tea Party movement, when properly activated, can generate a huge number of votes—more votes in 2010, in fact, than the vote advantage Obama held over Romney in 2012. The data show that had the Tea Party groups continued to grow at the pace seen in 2009 and 2010, and had their effect on the 2012 vote been similar to that seen in 2010, they would have brought the Republican Party as many as 5-8.5 million votes compared to Obama’s victory margin of 5 million.”

Think about the sheer political facts of the president’s 2012 victory. The first thing we learned, in the weeks after the voting, was that the Obama campaign was operating with a huge edge in its technological operation—its vast digital capability and sophistication. The second thing we learned, in the past month, is that while the campaign was on, the president’s fiercest foes, in the Tea Party, were being thwarted, diverted and stopped.

Technological savvy plus IRS corruption. The president’s victory now looks colder, more sordid, than it did. Which is why our editor, James Taranto, calls him “President Asterisk.”

This is about as close as anyone has come to bluntly stating what a lot of people (including me) think. That president Obama and/or his campaign used the IRS to neutralize the Tea party to secure his re-election and it’s appeared not on DaTechGuy’s Blog, or the Lonely Conservative or the Minority Report;  [it] was written for the Wall Street Journal.
If Edward Snowden was not the headline of the week this piece would be the talk of Washington and Peggy Noonan would be a guest on at least 1 weekend talk show to discuss it. She was not and it was not.
The IRS scandal keeps progressing and there are developments on Benghazi too but as long as we are playing Where’s Waldo with Edward Snowden the media have a different  “Obama Scandal” to talk about instead ...

What do you think?

I suspect another Alinsky scheme combined with another Cloward and Piven Orchestrated Crisis underhanded plot at work!!!

Global Research: My (Naomi Wolf's) Creeping Concern that the NSA Leaker Edward Snowden is not who he Purports to be…


Some of Snowden’s emphases seem to serve an intelligence/police state objective, rather than to challenge them.

a) He is super-organized, for a whistle blower, in terms of what candidates, the White House, the State Dept. et al call ‘message discipline.’ He insisted on publishing a power point in the newspapers that ran his initial revelations. I gather that he arranged for a talented filmmaker to shoot the Greenwald interview. These two steps – which are evidence of great media training, really ‘PR 101′ – are virtually never done (to my great distress) by other whistle blowers, or by progressive activists involved in breaking news, or by real courageous people who are under stress and getting the word out. They are always done, though, by high-level political surrogates.

b) In the Greenwald video interview, I was concerned about the way Snowden conveys his message. He is not struggling for words, or thinking hard, as even bright, articulate whistle blowers under stress will do. Rather he appears to be transmitting whole paragraphs smoothly, without stumbling. To me this reads as someone who has learned his talking points – again the way that political campaigns train surrogates to transmit talking points.

c) He keeps saying things like, “If you are a journalist and they think you are the transmission point of this info, they will certainly kill you.” Or: “I fully expect to be prosecuted under the Espionage Act.” He also keeps stressing what he will lose: his $200,000 salary, his girlfriend, his house in Hawaii. These are the kinds of messages that the police state would LIKE journalists to take away; a real whistle blower also does not put out potential legal penalties as options, and almost always by this point has a lawyer by his/her side who would PROHIBIT him/her from saying, ‘come get me under the Espionage Act.” Finally in my experience, real whistle blowers are completely focused on their act of public service and trying to manage the jeopardy to themselves and their loved ones; they don’t tend ever to call attention to their own self-sacrifice. That is why they are heroes, among other reasons. But a police state would like us all to think about everything we would lose by standing up against it.

d) It is actually in the Police State’s interest to let everyone know that everything you write or say everywhere is being surveilled, and that awful things happen to people who challenge this. Which is why I am not surprised that now he is on UK no-fly lists – I assume the end of this story is that we will all have a lesson in terrible things that happen to whistle blowers. That could be because he is a real guy who gets in trouble; but it would be as useful to the police state if he is a fake guy who gets in ‘trouble.’

I think there is a drone somewhere with his name on it because it is now legal for them to kill Americans.

He is still a traitor to this country.

If I went into my boss's office and stole the files, it would make me a criminal. There is no justification around that no matter how dirty everyone around him was. He took laptops that weren't his, period.

I would strongly *guess* the reality is that he had to hand over the information for passage and there is no way in the world that the bad guys would let him do otherwise. Other countries probably now have your information as well as mine, Christine.

Hi Sosthenes,

Good points. Snowden may be a traitor to our country, but do you think that he is also being used in such a capacity by the BHO handlers? After all, BHO has indicated many times and through many actions that he hates our nation (and I personally think that he is a traitor!!) and wants to "fundamentally transform" us into a socialist/communist dictatorship. What better way to achieve this (see all the reasons in original post) then by blaming a 29 year-old high school drop out who obtained secret documents and then hides out in an airport terminal in a communist country like Russia?

Recall the hot mic statement where BHO stated to Medvedev that he would have more "flexibility" after the 2012 election?

I don't believe that the so-called "chilly relationship" with Putin actually exists as far as the secret U.S. documents are concerned. However, the Syrian conflict with Russia supporting Assad while BHO and the idiots in the Senate want to arm the rebels (a.k.a. al Queda terrorists!!!) may have divided them.

I also think that the NSA snooping into citizen records was for the purpose of blackmailing people into submission to the government. The way that the Senate establishment Republicans are going about immigration reform (including TEA Party turncoats - Marco Rubio and Kelly Ayotte) indicates to me that either they have succumbed to the dark side or they have been threatened with blackmail if they don't comply.

I don't know what is going to happen in the House, but if the Senate bill wins out in the end the progressives will end up ruling America forever. Our Constitutional Republic will be gone, our rights will disappear one by one, and what will be left will be unrecognizable to us. What a terribly sad day THAT would be.
