Washington’s Matrix Is Closing Down Truth Throughout the Western World

Paul Craig Roberts

For a number of years I have emphasized that 9/11 was used by Dick Cheney to significantly reduce the public’s, the judiciary’s, and Congress’ access to information about what the executive branch is doing, thereby preventing legal, legislative, and electoral action against the unlawful and unconstitutional behavior of the executive branch during the Cheney/Bush and Obama regimes.

R3publicans/Snowden Validated: European Court Says the Mass Surveillance He Exposed Violates Privacy Rights: Reason.com

Since his whistle-blowing, the United Kingdom has granted itself even more power to snoop on citizens.

Scott Shackford|Sep. 13, 2018

The Guardianexplains that after Snowden exposed the British government’s role in citizen surveillance, tapping into communication networks to suck on that massive firehose of data, 14 human rights and privacy groups filed suit against the U.K.

Chuck Schumer’s Evil Schemes

Chuck Schumer’s evil schemes to hold up the Kavanaugh SCOTUS nomination are beginning to remind me of Havey Korman’s Hedley Lamarr in Blazing Saddles.
