When Wikileaks boldly published the election cycle leaks, which the MSM falsely said (and still say) were from Putin, something of interest was noted by many. Here was a trove of information that proved that Hillary Clinton and/or people whom she worked with closely were pedophiles, satanic spirit cookers, Saudi Arabian nationals and officials who abuse women in unspeakable ways. This was on top of the fact that her email server was in a bathroom unsecured. We know that Obama was even calling her actions the kind of “qualities” that got him elected as he condemned her privately in the White House. Yet at the end of the day, who did we hear were the enemies? Assange for printing it, Putin for causing it (he didn’t), and Fox News for covering it.
Not once did they ever bother to confront WHAT was leaked, only to attack the leaker. This is like a criminal getting caught burglarizing a house and then complaining about the kind of people who caught him! Now the C.I.A. has taken up the Clinton strategy, and once again it is the MSM at CBS News who are running with it the loudest. It involves a joint investigation with the C.I.A. and F.B.I. in what they consider “one of the worst security breaches in CIA history.” Revealed were thousands of Top Secret documents on how those organizations spy and compromise “smartphones, smart televisions, and computer systems.”
These may be tools to keep us safe from pedophiles, but if that were the motive, would not more questions have been asked about some people in Clinton’s inner circle? Nope, instead they blame the leaker. Perhaps this tool is to aid the C.I.A. and F.B.I. uncovering possible ties to terrorism and are used to keep us safe. If that was the case, shouldn’t they have looked into Clinton and the Saudi’s a bit closer than they did? No, again, find and blame the leaker, and never look at the leak itself. We are not supposed to question why we have no longer have a Fourth Amendment or why Uncle Sam only needs rubber stamp warrants to spy on our data as free citizens in America.
Either a C.I.A. employee or perhaps a contractor (like Snowden, a hero to many) is who they are seeking. It had to be someone who had access to the material in some way and who knew the inner workings enough to not get noticed at the time of the capture. The data was said to be stored “in a highly secure section of the intelligence agency,” yet still, hundreds of people would have had access to the area. Investigators are searching records and combing through names to find out who they feel the guilty culprit(s) are.
Wikileaks published the information in March, something that shows that Assange is still much more concerned with his life for liberty than his life for leisure, something that he once had. He was a self-admitted playboy who called himself a “pig” in terms of his active and happy “James Bond” kind of sex life, for instance. He has given up ALL of that and has lived in an embassy with only a few rooms for over half a decade.
C.I.A. Director, Mike Pompeo, said of the Wikileaks founder, “It is time to call out WikiLeaks for what it really is: A non-state hostile intelligence service often abetted by state actors like Russia.” He would likely enjoy being the one to crush the embassy’s front door and pull Assange out by the hair, but even then, no good would come of it. A man who has spent over five years trapped in tiny living quarters is a gentleman who has surely set up a continuity plan should he meet his end in some way, be it via prison cell or death.
The article goes on to say in closing, “The CIA has not commented on the authenticity of the WikiLeaks disclosures or on the status of the investigation.” However, one question needs to be asked: Why would they be spending all this time and effort on something if it was considered a hoax? Only yesterday we confirmed that even the most absurd sounding stories from Wikileaks prove true, something that the C.I.A. hates. That being said, Wikileaks claims that it was a contractor, and with Assange not known for lies, we can rest assured that it was. Otherwise, he would have said nothing.
The “leak of which we should not speak” is much bigger than that, however. No one is in favor of exposing tools to help child rapists or terrorists hurt anyone. America has in place more than enough laws to allow such suspects to be monitored, spied upon, and apprehended if need be. What people are against is this blanket netting that happens where everyone sees their information or “metadata” being scooped up by Big Brother as if the Fourth Amendment to the Constitution was written by Jefferson after a bender and should be discounted. Warrants can be obtained for someone thought to be preparing to blow up a daycare, for instance. NO judge in America is going to deny that.
Instead, our government has done what liberty hero Ron Paul described as making it harder to find the needle by adding more hay. Not only is this a problem for reasons of gathering needed data quickly, but it also works against the average man or woman by prying illegally. Sometimes information is obtained that falls well below the criteria needed to warrant a C.I.A. search, and yet law enforcement, in many instances, can use that illegally obtained information to pursue those matters anyhow.
Some may argue that this is a “win,” but it is not. The government has made virtually everything illegal and this is done in part to support “for profit” prisons. If it is easy to lock people up then it stands to reason that those scoring a profit from this system are going to want to have as many culprits guilty of anything possible in order to peel money from them. This is why people like Assange are willing to give up a life that many will never live in order for us to be able to live the kind of lives that we should.
