France's high tax rates. Putin granted the actor Russian citizenship and other Russian officials had given him flats around the country, including in Grozny, the postwar capital of Chechnya which is a well-known Muslim stronghold that frequently provokes Russia and the two countries squabble and fight. If you recall, the Boston Marathon bombers were from Chechnya. They were the Tsarnaev brothers, Tamerlan and Dzhokhar, whom Al Qaeda Magazine praised for killing and maiming innocent onlookers of the Boston Marathon including a 12-year-old boy.

|From founding father to America's first traitor, Benedict Arnold who sold|
secrets to the enemy, England during the Revolutionary War in America.
If a spy is selling American military secrets to an enemy nation, we call him a traitor. What do we call him when he helps to unravel a government plot against its own people, a spying mission called PRISM run by the National Security Agency (NSA) and engaged in gathering “private” information about millions of innocent American citizens?
Snowden Is A Patriot. Bush and Obama Are The Traitors—Traitors To Our Freedoms
I call the man, Edward Snowden, a hero, and he ought not to have to flee the CIA or some other murderous U.S. government organization. It reminds me a little of the "Bourne Identity" movie where an ex CIA operative is injured and can’t remember who he is and the CIA is out to destroy him for the secrets his head holds.
Our current whistle-blower, Edward Snowden, is on the run. He was reported being in Hong Kong, but where will he go next? Iceland, Russia, mainland China. It’s a mystery as death defying and perplexing as any written by John La Carre, Eric Ambler, Len Deighton, Sumerset Maugham, Ken Follitt, or Charles McCarry.
But we now know that President Barack Obama, Like President George W. Bush before him, has a twisted mind. He wants to gather information for himself and the Democratic Party which might insure liberals to be in power for the next one hundred years or more. Political dominance was not why George Bush gathered information on Americans, however. .
Obama’s Motives Are Evil
Obama wants to make a case against certain Americans, perhaps millions of us, who have done our country no harm but are loyal U.S. citizens--more than we can say about Obama. He and James Clapper’s NSA and thousands of government workers and crooked attorneys, whose salaries we pay through our exorbitant taxes, masquerade as loyal citizens who want nothing more than to protect the security of the nation from the likes of Russia, North Korea and China. But it's all a fraud, a lie, and deceit against honest, hardworking Americans.
Election Fraud:The problem with that scenario is that it’s a cover up. It’s as scandalous as the IRS fiasco.where Obama told IRS agents to harass Republicans and hold up tax exempt status from many deserving Americanss who wanted to support Mitt Romney in the last election. The radio and TV ads their money would buy was crucial for Romney to have had an equal chance to win the election by catching up with Obama’s spending and exposure.. This is the reason Americans like Publisher Steve Forbes are calling for a special prosecutor. We believe testimony will lead the prosecutor directly to he White House and to the Oval Office. This is Obama’s greatest fear.
Obama’s agents, like Hitler’s Nazi Party, are merchants of fear
The real reason for pestering innocent Americans is political. It scares citizens to know that the FBI, CIA and NSA are out there looking for bits and pieces of information from which they might connect the dots and piece together “proof” to make an unwarranted arrest and get some liberal judge to allow them to take some of these exaggerated “cases” to court. A few convictions would stir up the people enough that they might fall into line sooner, just as the mere presence of Hitler’s storm troopers and the Nazi liars bent the freedom-loving will of the German people and made them pliable and more “compliant and governable.” Are Americans any more resilient from this kind of terror than the Germans were?
"Great liars are also great magicians" said Adolf Hitler. “Make the lie big, make it simple, keep saying it, and eventually they will believe it.”
Now comes a young man named Edward Snowden who provided inside information to The Guardian in England. This newspaper published the truth about how Obama has extracted agreements with nine or more Internet providers, search engines and social networks like Facebook, Google, Apple, Microsoft and an untold number of brands that want the world to trust them. Why? They’ve got our personal information, emails, photos, and documents. Yet, they are now facing a battle to maintain that trust after disclosures that the US government was given access to their customers' data online via the PRISM program operated by the NSA.
Low information Democrats buy the Obama party line. They defend him, stating that he is only trying, through the Patriot Act and like Bush, to keep our national secrets secure from other countries. But they are not secure. China has hacked into our military and development secrets. Can we punish them in some way?
Last Friday Obama met with the Chinese dictator, President Xi Jinping, in California, avoiding any mention of Chinese cyberespionage, collection of cyberdata or hacking. Edward Snowden has said he might seek asylum in a country with 'shared values', such as Iceland.

Russia has offered to consider an asylum request from US whistleblower Edward Snowden, in the Kremlin's latest move to woo critics of the west. Snowden fled the United States before leaking the details of a top-secret US surveillance program to The Guardian this month. He is currently believed to be in Hong Kong, but has reportedly changed hotels to keep his location secret.
Fearing US retaliation, Snowden said at the weekend that "my predisposition is to seek asylum in a country with shared values", citing Iceland as an example. He defended his decision to flee to Hong Kong by citing its relative freedom compared with mainland China.
Snowden is not known to have made any asylum requests, including to Russia. Yet speaking to the Russian newspaper Kommersant, Dmitry Peskov, Vladimir Putin's spokesman, said: "If such an appeal is given, it will be considered. We'll act according to facts."

Peskov's comments were widely carried by the Russian media, which have largely ignored Snowden's revelations that the National Security Agency (NSA) was secretly empowered with wide-reaching authority to collect information from the US mobile provider Verizon and to snoop on emails and internet communications via a data-mining program called Prism. Russia's feared security services are widely believed to maintain similar powers.
Peskov's comments on potential asylum opened the floodgates on support for Snowden. Robert Shlegel, an influential MP with the ruling United Russia party, said: "That would be a good idea."
Alexey Pushkov, head of the Duma's international affairs committee and a vocal US critic, said on Twitter: "By promising asylum to Snowden, Moscow has taken upon itself the protection of those persecuted for political reasons. There will be hysterics in the US. They only recognize this right for themselves."
He continued: "Listening to telephones and tracking the internet, the US special services broke the laws of their country. In this case, Snowden, like Assange, is a human rights activist."
Russia has a roundly poor reputation for human rights and freedom of speech, with people regularly persecuted for their political beliefs. Dozens have been arrested for protesting against Putin, and the president's top critics continue to face the decision of whether to flee the country or end up in jail.

in custody generated international media attention
and triggered both official and unofficial inquiries
The country's own whistleblowers suffer harrowing fates. Sergei Magnitsky, a lawyer who revealed a multimillion-dollar corruption scheme involving officials from the interior ministry and tax police, was arrested and later died in jail after being refused medical attention. His body also showed signs of torture. Alexey Navalny, a prominent anti-corruption activist, is currently on trial on charges widely believed to be politically motivated.
Yet Russia is often among the first countries to offer support for whistleblowers who expose wrongdoing in the west. Julian Assange, the head of WikiLeaks, found many a champion among Russian officials and was given a program on “Russia Today,” the Kremlin's English-language propaganda television channel.
Putin has made a concerted effort to woo those who forsake the west. This year, he loudly welcomed Gérard Depardieu after the French actor declared his desire to renounce his citizenship in protest at
This kind of indiscriminate murder is decried here in the west when it’s one of our own. But the Obama use of drones creates similar innocent victims almost each time he orders the techies a thousand miles away to bomb a target. .

Now Obama has other innocent targets in the person of millions of Americans whose identies, personal information, and home addresses, phone numbers and addresses, plus plenty of other information, is now not private and could be exploited.
Sure Americans are disgusted and scared, just as innocent people who mean us no harm are scared each time they hear that familiar low pitched lawn-mower-sounding whirr of the U.S. drones, armed to the teeth with rockets and devastating bombs.
