Edward Snowden Is A Traitor Deserving Of Death....

Updated on September 14, 2016

Edward Snowden Is A Traitor Deserving Death…

I am shocked that our Intelligence Agencies spy on our friends and foes alike in their business endeavors or to know of advantages that they may hold in military or otherwise - it is what is coined in the “Cloak and Dagger” world as Industrial Espionage, as opposed to the 007 lethal kind... and this morning, Edward Snowden, the former sub-contractor employee of the National Security Agency (NSA), was griping and seems to be genuinely outraged at our Espionage programs. Of course, Mr. Snowden is a paradigm of conviction because he was doing his ‘bitching’ on the run after exposing our secrets to the world - such bravery, I tell you.

Every time, I am confronted with an issue, I have a tendency of placing myself in others’ shoes before weighing in on said issue and with that said, let us take the case of Mr. Snowden and let us pretend that I am in a similar job of mining and gleaning data for the protection of this country. Let us also suppose that I am privy to the fact that the NSA was guilty of allegedly, illegally listening in our phone calls via a Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) scheme and by looking at our e-mails by another scheme, PRISM - but suppose that releasing this alleged ‘wrongdoing’ of the NSA that it could put actual lives in jeopardy, and moreover, our the country’s security as a whole... should not myself or Mr. Snowden be prudent in releasing this information, especially since there are legal avenues to do so that are in place already?

Are we to believe that Mr. Snowden had to travel to a hostile country to expose the United States, and ironically, travelling to Hong Kong, whose Fiefdom lords, the Chinese, are the poster children for Human Rights abuses. In the same vein, it was rather gratingly funny to hear Vladimir Putin, the Russian dictator, lecturing America, even going so far as to dangle the asylum carrot to Mr. Snowden - this is the same Russian dictator who is currently jailing a rock group (Pussy Riot) for what was tantamount to the latter’s freedom of speech done via songs. Mr. Snowden is the typical spoil brat who does not have the courage of his conviction... manifested in the fact that he got out of dodge and like a typical ‘Sociopath Without Portfolio,’ he is rationalizing his wrong doing by emoting how superior he was in exposing the NSA’s wrong doings, but nary an apology for the lives he may have indeed harm. It is even more sickening that Mr. Snowden was making an annual salary of $122,000.00 and with a home in Hawaii… much more than actual Intelligence Operatives who place their lives in jeopardy for God and country on a regular basis.

The irony is that had Mr. Snowden been working on behalf of any other country’s Intelligence Agency, he would be more than likely be dead for what he cravenly did … and I do not have much sympathy for him because there are those out there who are employed by our Cloak/Dagger agencies… dying in anonymity and who are even being buried in anonymity, which underscores how dangerous their jobs are. The selfishness and hypocrisy are both traits of the “me’ generation and Mr. Snowden has demonstrated that he has a chronic case; he will continue to give us bogus, specious analogies to justify his appetite for fame, but I for one equate what Mr. Snowden has done to someone who has murdered others and likewise he should be lethally ‘put down’ for potentially placing operatives lives in certain danger.

The ‘Cloak and Dagger’ spy game is serious business and do not be surprised that other Intelligent Agencies are vying to get their respective hands on Mr. Snowden, providing that he was not engaging in hyperbole in the Intelligence he said that he was privy to. These foreign Intelligence agencies would like to know what Mr. Snowden knows… but anyone who receives the ‘services’ of Mr. Snowden will not trust him because such is the nature of those who betray their countries.

It must be noted that most in the media are going to support Mr. Snowden, because like him… most of them are selfish and hypocritical too. These are the folks whose conviction can give the great Roman statesman and orator, Cicero, a run for his money when they tell you how ‘Progressive’ they are - but, who themselves do not hesitate to call the cops when a Black man dares to walk in their neighborhoods like that of the Upper East Side of New York; or those who wax poetic about the dangers to the Environment, but who themselves always are flying around in their private jets; or those celebrities who were in New York during 911 and who praised the bravery of the firefighters and police officers… but who then speedily got out of dodge; or those who are bemoaning how ‘the rich’ do not pay enough taxes, but who themselves have the best tax lawyers, so not to render unto Caesar. I can give you much more examples if the time were to permit… but take it from me, the ‘pathology' that is chronically plaguing Mr. Snowden is not an aberration to him or many in our society!

      Manning has been convicted for his crimes and has admitted his misconduct.

      Putin is a dictator and former head of the KGB.

      Hong Kong is a puppet state of Communist China and is struggling to maintain some level of self-government.

      Communist China, like Russia, is not a democratic state and its people are not free. Neither the people of Russia nor China have freedom of political speech or any right to privacy--- particularly of electronic privacy.

      Snowden is not a whistleblower. Snowden is, at this time, a likely defector to Russia who has been charged with several serious crimes.

      I find it convenient that all of the Presidents he was asked to assassinate were Democrat... I do not put much credence into conspiracy theories, and, as a Christian, the truth is all I care about. I am certain that whatever this man has to say concerning plots, etc, will be vetted and if there is any truth... it will see the light of day.

      Former KGB Agent’s Revelations Make the Snowden Scandal Pale in Comparison

      Added by Douglas Cobb on September 9, 2013.

      Saved under Douglas Cobb, Edward Snowden, Politics, U.S.

      The Edward Snowden NSA scandal is a major news item. But, it pales in comparison to the revelations that Mykhaylo (Mike) Kryzhanovsky has revealed, about subjects like presidential assassinations, the real role of the CIA, and other topics. This is the first in a series of articles that will detail some of Mike’s allegations.

      Who is Mykhaylo Kryzhanovsky ?

      He was a KGB agent who came to the United States in 1958, and was granted asylum here.

      Doc 1. Asylum letter

      He was recruited by the CIA, and began a career working for them, often asking him to perform tasks that he was not comfortable with doing. He was asked, among other things, to assassinate both President Bill Clinton and President Obama. Because he turned down these requests, or orders, he has been a hunted man.

      It might seem unlikely, at first blush, that the CIA was behind plots to assassinate both Clinton and Obama; but, Mike has a vast range of knowledge about the KGB and the CIA, and he has the documentation to back up his claims.

      These articles will go further in-depth into the allegations that Mike has made, but this first article will give you a glimpse of what’s to come.

      When Mike first arrived in America, one of the people he was very interested in going after was Gestapo Chief Heinrich Mueller. Mueller, Mike writes in a book he’s working on, “was recruited and worked for Office of Strategic Services (OSS). At OSS order he planned and executed the operation to poison the US President Franklin Roosevelt. He was last seen in the Führerbunker in Berlin on May 1, 1945, the day after Hitler’s suicide. The CIA’s file on Muller was released under the Freedom of Information. Act in 2001, and documents several unsuccessful attempts by U.S. agencies to find Mueller. The U.S. National Archives commentary on the file concludes: ‘Though inconclusive on Muller’s ultimate fate, the file is very clear on one point. The CIA and its predecessors (OSS) did not know Muller’s whereabouts at any point after the war. The CIA was never in contact with Mueller.’

      Before coming to the United States, Mueller was behind the deaths of millions of Jews in Nazi Germany.

      He was allegedly also behind the assassination of President Franklin D. Roosevelt, though Roosevelt’s death was called a brain hemorrhage by his doctor.

      As Mike writes in his book:

      April 12, 1945

      On the afternoon of April 12, Roosevelt said, “I have a terrific pain in the back of my head.” He then slumped forward in his chair, unconscious, and was carried into his bedroom. The president’s attending cardiologist, Dr. Bruenn, diagnosed a massive cerebral hemorrhage (stroke). At 3:35 pm Roosevelt died. Three American presidents – Harry Truman, Dwight Eisenhower and John Kennedy rejected Roosevelt family’s request for autopsy – they knew who killed the President, they knew about Mueller and nobody wanted to be next.

      June 4, 1961

      During a short break in Vienna Summit between John Kennedy and Soviet Premier Nikita Khruschhev, Kennedy’s Press Secretary Pier Sallinger, introduced to the President Soviet journalist Valentin Zorin who asked why Kennedy refused the autopsy of Roosevelt’s body. Kennedy got angry: “I’ll OK the autopsy and there might be traces of a poison. It won’t bring Roosevelt back but what people would think about the country where they poison presidents like rats ?”

      As to the purported assassination plots against Presidents Bill Clinton and Barack Obama,Mike relates that he was recruited at the Hilton motel, and that he was code named “Filament.”

      As to why the CIA wanted Clinton killed, Mike has suggested that it could be because the CIA didn’t want an uranium deal to go on between Clinton and Yeltsin. According to Mike, “he didn’t want to share ‘Russian uranium’ money with CIA.”

      In an email, he wrote:

      I was the best KGB “Nabat” group” sniper, not only #1 spy and political and espionage scientist. CIA wanted me to eliminate Clinton because as Ukrainian National Security officer I had to kill President Yeltsin in 1992.

      Altogether I have 30 years of espionage and counterespionage experience and worked for 5 special services.

      Where would the Assassination of President Clinton occur?

      The assassination of President Bill Clinton was supposed to happen at one of Clinton’s favorite restaurants, Filomena, in Washington, D.C. Mike is an expert sniper, and he was asked to use a sniper rifle with a silencer, possibly a Russian “Stechkin.”

      Here is a photograph of the Filomena:

      filomena-restaurant (1)

      Mike added: “With Obama – any hotel, better NYC.”

      Mike has stated that the CIA isn’t very good at handling international matters, nor in learning very much about Russia and President (now Premier) Putin’s true intentions.

      What they are more concerned with, according to Mike, is working “inside America mostly, not outside, controlling the White House and the US Congress. For self-preservation, of course.”

      Would Mike assassinate President Clinton or President Obama today, if he was asked to by the CIA?

      It would definitely be tempting for Mike to go through with assassinating either former President Bill Clinton or President Barack Obama if the CIA came to him and asked him to today. Mike has said, because of his past refusal, he has had a difficult time of surviving, and finding other employment options.

      According to Mike:

      I don’t remember when I had three hot meals a day, and if CIA Director John Brennan, FBI Director Comey or US secret Service Director Pierson give me a call and mention Obama or Clintons as targets, I can’t guarantee “no” if money is good.”

      If the next president voted into office is Hilary Clinton, Mike believes that she will start a war to try to get “Russian resources.” Also, if the Secret Service somehow manages to kill Putin either in Russia or here, Mike’s concerned that there will be “a very serious conflict between the two countries.”

      Mike has said in an email that he “warned Putin.” I have seen a copy of the document, written in the Russian language, which he sent to Putin. He sent it “to the Presidents Security Office (FSO).”

      Mykhaylo Kryzhanovsky’s life is a very interesting one, to say the least. In future articles, I’ll go into some of his allegations even further in-depth, and report on why what the CIA has been involved with over the years is potentially much more of a danger to the United States than Edward Snowden’s revelations.

      'Depicts that' is quite different from actuality. Your opinion is quite dangerously centred around the media norms, which you seem to just accept either for your own political views, or because you actually believe that. If you are privy to their status, then you know better than to lump China and Hong Kong together...

      As recently as Sunday, One of Sixty Minutes depicted that for all intents and purposes that the little man with the Napolean complex, Putin, is a dictator... and buy the way, I did not need Sixty Minutes to enlighten of that fact. And as far as Hong Kong is concerned, I am privy to its status.

      Your obvious sarcasm of "Snowden is a paradigm of conviction because he was doing his ‘bitching’ on the run after exposing our secrets to the world - such bravery, I tell you" is really a low hit. Even Ellsberg applauded his leaving the United States. What would you rather him do? Stay and become a second Bradley Manning? The very fact that he gave up his very comfortable life in Hawaii to follow something he felt was right is itself extremely brave. Leaving is the best way to preserve himself and continue the fight. Also the alleged risk to national security is another absurdity spilled out by the NSA leaders and the administration. It makes no sense to say these leaks have jeopardized any lives, it merely focused on American surveillance on its citizens and foreign nations. It did not disclose specifics and the idea that we know the terrorist are acting differently in light of this new program is also another absurdity spewed by the government. If you actually believe the terrorists did not expect the government was spying on their every move...then you really need to evaluate the psychology of these people. They are not idiots, they may be radical and evil, but clearly not idiots.

      Your rhetoric on the hostility of China and Russia is so far detached from reality that I cannot read your comments without thinking of Fox news...Listen, first of all Hong Kong should not be put in the same boat as China, do your research. I will not comment on your inaccurate claims about Putin, but again do your research (last thing we need is random dysphemisms about dictators and evil influence)...
