OpEdNews - Article: This Week's Two Minute Hate:

 ''This entire carnival of perversion is yet another luminescent display of the terminal hypocrisy that currently inflicts dumbed-down, riled-up and fucked-over America. Our leader in historical infamy, El Presidente Barack Obama has appeared on the cover of said magazine no fewer than FIVE times. The man is an accomplished liar, war criminal (by definition every U.S. President is one), murderer (by proxy) who has a daily "kill list" delivered after breakfast, a man responsible for the ongoing terrorism of the illegal wars and occupations (including the upcoming one in Syria) and as recently revealed in an embarrassing manner by government contractor Booz Allen leaker Edward Snowden, presides over a fascist surveillance apparatus that is a high tech equivalent of the East German Stasi."

OpEdNews - Article: America Does not have a Functioning Democracy - President Jimmy Carter-- Yet MSM Keeps Serving Up Distractions

OpEdNews - Article: America Does not have a Functioning Democracy - President Jimmy Carter-- Yet MSM Keeps Serving Up Distractions:" One of the most important issues that the government wishes would go away is the fact that the NSA is monitoring every phone call. tweet, email and online communication of every person in America. This isn't all, they are also eavesdropping on communications of other nations, even their closest allies. The government doesn't want the people dwelling on the fact that we have absolutely no privacy. They also don't want people reading about how outraged other nations are over U.S. clandestine activities. The truth is that the government would like everyone to be involved in issues such as gay marriage, abortion, celebrity worship and forest fires."

Is The Safety Of The State Really Worth More Than The Truth?

Is The Safety Of The State Really Worth More Than The Truth?: "Loyalty is not and never has been unconditional – loyalty to government most of all. Loyalty to the system is dependent upon the nature of the system and the people who sit at its apex. The system must reflect the higher aspirations of the society it seeks to manage or protect. It must be held to the highest possible standard and be totally transparent in its nature. It is the job of government whistleblowers to make this possible. If they do not, then criminality will remain painfully felt but officially unconfirmed. Our country will continue to crumble into fascist oblivion, and all that will be left for the citizenry is revolution."
