Edward Snowden Is in Good Company

Edward Snowden

Edward Snowden is charged with espionage under the Espionage Act of 1917. The Espionage Act of 1917 was signed into law by President Woodrow Wilson as an incentive against individuals "protesting" against World War I. From 1917 to the Obama Presidency, only three people have been charged under the Espionage Act of 1917. Since the Obama Presidency, seven people have been charged under the Act.

Is Mr. Snowden guilty as charged?

You "betcha!"

Yes, he is guilty. He is just as guilty as the Reformer Martin Luther and the Prophet Elijah.

What do I mean?

Martin Luther was a lowly German priest who publicly protested against Pope Alexander VI's Church, in part, for his endorsement of the practice of selling indulgences. Elijah was a lowly prophet who publicly protested against the Israeli King Ahab and Queen Jezebel, in part, for their endorsement of the practice of worshipping Baal.

Martin Luther and Elijah were both respectively charged with high treason by the Vatican and Israel. In response, Martin Luther and Elijah doubled down by aggressively "protesting" more so against the Vatican and Israel, respectively. Of course, they were Davids to the latter Goliaths who had to be rescued. For example, Martin Luther was rescued ("kidnapped") by German princes who hid him (under an assumed name in a German castle) until the Pope's successor (who continued to persecute Herr Luther) died within the same year. Elijah was rescued by G-d Who hid him in the wilderness and sent ravens to feed him until the death of the Israeli Queen Jezebel in the same year.

Both the Catholic Pope and the Israeli Queen Jezebel wanted to "burn the traitors at the stake."

Karl, why are you condoning lawbreakers? Shouldn't you pay the consequences when you break the law?

Should you suffer the consequences when you break "illegal" laws?

Martin Luther and Elijah argued that the Vatican and Israel were captured, corrupted, perverted and prostituted by the Babylonian System. As a matter of fact, Martin Luther called Pope Alexander VI an Anti-Christ and Elijah's labels for the Israeli King Ahab and the Israeli Queen Jezebel are well documented.

In defense of Pope Alexander VI's Vatican, the highly respected Catholic Theologian Silvester Mazzolini (i.e., Prieras) among other Vatican officials and apologists personally attacked the lowly German priest (who refused income from his bestselling literary works) who led an impeccable lifestyle. Prieras even stated that the Catholic pope is infallible and as the highest authority in the Catholic Church, he supersedes the Holy Scripture (i.e., the Holy Bible).

Likewise, in defense of the Israeli King Ahab and the Israeli Queen Jezebel, Israeli officials and apologists personally attacked the Prophet Elijah (arguably second only to Moses) who led an impeccable lifestyle. The Israelis argued that the Israeli King Ahab and Queen Jezebel are infallible and as the highest authority in Israel, they superseded the Torah including the Ten Commandments.

In the same vein, Edward Snowden is publicly "protesting" against the US government (including its three branches and the so-called fourth branch), in part, because of its endorsement to undermining the US Constitution (in spite of their oath to uphold it). Like Martin Luther and Elijah, Mr. Snowden is playing "David" to the American government's "Goliath." He, too, had to be rescued by "friends" from the wrath of the US government who wants him to be "burned at the stake." Like Martin Luther hiding in a German castle and Elijah hiding in the wilderness, he had to hide in Red China - ironically, one of the last Godless Communist countries still standing.

Like the Vatican (as per Martin Luther) and Israel (as per Elijah), the US government is captured, corrupted, perverted and prostituted by the Babylonian System. As a matter of fact, it can be argued that Mr. Snowden is more of an American patriot than most significant actors in the American government.

In defense of the Obama administration (i.e., the American government), Vice President Dick Cheney and other government officials/apologists personally attacked the lowly federal agency worker/contractor (i.e., a high school dropout - Albert Einstein and Thomas Edison were high school dropouts, too). In defending the American spying on all of its citizens which is undoubtedly illegal as per the Fourth Amendment of the US Constitution, the apologists are saying, de facto, that the American government (including the three branches) is infallible and as the governing body it supersedes the US Constitution.

Wouldn't we be praising the memory of German Nazi SS-Obersturmbannfuhrer Adolf Eichmann if he had taken a page out of Edward Snowden's book and publicly "protested" against the pending Holocaust of the Jewish People (disclaimer: my mother's mother's mother was born and raised as a Jew in Jamaica)? Wouldn't Herr Eichmann needed to be "rescued" to a place outside of Nazi Germany and its occupied territories for his "protest" to be heard and be effective? Wouldn't he have being a traitor to Nazi Germany? Was he excused or justified for following "orders" under his government because he took an oath? Wouldn't have Nazi officials/apologists personally attacked him and threatened him with hanging by piano wire off a meat hook? Did Nazi law superseded international law? Do you now see why Edward Snowden is a hero to many?

Does it Concern You That the Government is Spying on You?

Oliver Stone speaks about US government NSA spying on USA citizensOliver Stone video (1:51). "Let me ask you a very simple question. Does it concern you that the government spying on you? Thirty years to even ask this question would have been a scandal. If you lived through Watergate, if you read the Church Committee reports, you know the cost of unchecked government surveillance. The government is exploiting our amnesia.

We did not pass the fourth amendment in order to protect those with something to hide. We passed that amendment, which prohibits general warrants or limitless surveillance because we know all too well the cost of an unaccountable government.

The question is not "do you have something to hide?". The question is whether we control government or the government controls us.

Remember, this struggle is part of who we are as a people. This country was born in rebellion because the British government was exerting too much over American lives. We broke free and began to create a system of government meant to protect liberty.

Our national history reveals a constant to stay true to this value. We face one of those moments of struggle right now. Recent leaks have given us a glimpse of our government's gigantic surveillance machine. It's a machine that's eating our freedom.

If this concerns you, and it should, you need to contact your representatives in Congress NOW. Asked them to end the tracking of American's domestic communications. I won't stand idly by while our civil liberties are eaten by the NSA surveillance machine. You shouldn't either."

Some have claimed that Americans don't care about the revelations that  the NSA is conducting massive surveillance on our private  communications. But Oliver Stone isn't buying it.

In a video (1:51)  produced with the ACLU, Director Oliver Stone shares some of his  reflections on the NSA spying program and the disastrous legacy of  unchecked government abuse of power. All Americans should stand up for  our civil liberties at this critical moment in history, he says-- by  asking our representatives in Congress to roll back the surveillance  state.

56 Men Signed the Declaration of Independence

56 Men Signed the Declaration of Independence - What happened to them?Have you ever wondered what happened to the 56 men who signed the Declaration of Independence ?

Five signers were captured by the British as traitors, and tortured before they died. Twelve had their homes ransacked and burned.

Two lost their sons serving in the Revolutionary Army; another had two sons captured.

Nine of the 56 fought and died from wounds or hardships of the Revolutionary War.

They signed and they pledged their lives, their fortunes, and their sacred honor. What kind of men were they?

Twenty-four were lawyers and jurists. Eleven were merchants, nine were farmers and large plantation owners; men of means, well educated, but they signed the Declaration of Independence knowing full well that the penalty would be death if they were captured.

Signing of the Declaration of Independence by Jonathan TrumbullCarter Braxton of Virginia, a wealthy planter and trader, saw his ships swept from the seas by the British Navy. He sold his home and properties to pay his debts, and died in rags.

Thomas McKeam was so hounded by the British that he was forced to move his family almost constantly. He served in the Congress without pay, and his family was kept in hiding. His possessions were taken from him, and poverty was his reward.

Vandals or soldiers looted the properties of Dillery, Hall, Clymer, Walton, Gwinnett, Heyward, Rutledge, and Middleton. At the battle of Yorktown , Thomas Nelson, Jr., noted that the British General Cornwallis had taken over the Nelson home for his headquarters. He quietly urged General George Washington to open fire.

The Declaration of IndependenceThe home was destroyed, and Nelson died bankrupt. Francis Lewis had his home and properties destroyed. The enemy jailed his wife, and she died within a few months.

John Hart was driven from his wife's bedside as she was dying. Their 13 children fled for their lives. His fields and his gristmill were laid to waste. For more than a year he lived in forests and caves, returning home to find his wife dead and his children vanished.

So, take a few minutes while enjoying your 4th of July holiday and silently thank these patriots. It's not much to ask for the price they paid. Remember: freedom is never free!

It's time we get the word out that patriotism is NOT a sin, and the Fourth of July has more to it than beer, picnics, and baseball games. A single moment of understanding can flood a whole life with meaning.

Anonymous Hacks IRS & Publishes Romney Tax Returns

E-mail Print PDF

Anonymous Hacks IRS Database — Publishes Romney Tax ReturnsJuly 2012. Late last night, the mysterious group of hackers known as Anonymous successfully hacked the main database for the Internal Revenue Service. The group appeared to have a singular target- Republican Presidential nominee Mitt Romney. Romney has been criticized by both parties for his failure to produce more than one past tax return.

According to Ann Romney on ABC’s “Good Morning America” they had no intention of ever disclosing the contents on those returns: “We’ve given all you people need to know and understand about our financial situation and how we live our life”. Anonymous however, seems to have thought that we “the people” might want to know a little more about the man who seeks the White House.

The Anonymous attack successfully retrieved 25-years worth of Romney’s tax returns and published them without permission on major websites throughout the Internet. The majority of these websites removed the returns within minutes, however it was too late to completely protect the candidate’s already tainted image.

We at Free Wood Post were able to examine Romney’s 2008 tax return and found that he had good reason to fear its release. The 2008 return paints a picture of an extraordinarily wealthy man, whose low tax rate and bizarre itemized deductions will surely raise many questions as to his suitability to be President.
Romney campaign spokeswoman Andrea Saul stated last week that “there has been no year in which Romney paid zero taxes”. In 2008, this was true. He earned $23,425,316 and paid $412.18 in federal income taxes. This calculates to a federal tax rate of 0.0018%.

How did Romney get his tax burden so low? According to his return, he had approximately $23,407,000 in itemized deductions. These deductions ranged from $78,923 for “Toupee Creators Unlimited” and $41,826 for “Spray-on tan services” to a $3.8 million dollar write-off for a trip to Las Vegas with potential campaign donors.

The Romney family also paid salaries to their numerous employees including, two yacht captains, three pilots for their private jets, two professional dog walkers, one toupee stylist and a “live-in contortionist”. What someone does with a live-in contortionist, one can only speculate.

However, the $891,064 Romney spent on an “EWS Donor Party at the Pennsylvania Mansion” might give us a clue. While the return does not indicate what “EWS” stands for, given that the deducted supplies for the party included “Venetian masks, alcohol, lubricant and various Egyptian leather accessories” it was most likely an “Eyes Wide Shut” party.

Gary Johnson Says People in Washington Ruining America

Presidential Candidate Gary Johnson Says Be Libertarian With Me

Two-term New Mexico Governor, Gary Johnson, says both parties are indistinguishable from one another.

Both are keeping America broke.

Both are keeping America at war.

Both have trampled on the Constitution.

And both are stooges to the same big money players that never change behind the scenes.

It's time to put our differences and our parties aside and come together as a nation for the good of all.

We The People are ready to LIVE FREE.

"My name is Gary Johnson. Today I reach out to you – members of all political parties. I reach out to everyone with a vote and an ax to grind.

From the Tea Party to the Constitution Party, the Green and Libertarian Parties. I call out to all of you, including the disaffected and disillusioned among the Republicans and Democrats.

Today there's a handful of people in Washington ruining America for 330 million of us. They've kept our nation in a state of perpetual war and increasing unsustainable debt.

This small group has presided over the elimination of the Bill of Rights and the systematic dismantling of our freedoms guaranteed us under our Constitution. It is them we should be fighting, not each other."
