Edward Snowden: teenage years as web editor and gamer come to light

By Wednesday, the website had been taken down, but some pages had been
archived by other websites on the internet.

“I like my girlish figure that attracts girls,” he wrote, “and
I like my lamer friends. That’s the best biography you’ll get out of me,
coppers!”

Photographs uploaded by friends for Snowden’s 19th birthday show a young man
pulling down his pants for his colleagues, putting a clothespin on his
chest, and dancing. A blog entry from a company employee teased, “Who
is he? What does he do? Does he really love himself as much as his shameless
marketing would have you believe?”

Mr Snowden wrote on his profile that he liked online role-playing games (RPG).

“I always wanted to write RPG campaigns with my spare time, but I’ll get
about three missions in and scrap the world for my next, better, powergamin’
build.”

He joked that he “got bullied” into being an editor on the website
by a gaggle of artists and “beautiful nubile young girls.”

Mr Snowden said he liked playing the popular fighting video game Tekken. He
was so skilled that he attracted a gathering of fans at the 2002 Anime USA
convention, wrote a co-worker on another part of the site. “He tends to
spontaneously be a ray of sunshine and inspiration. He’s a great listener,
and he’s eager to help people improve themselves.”

The co-worker did not reply to inquiries. Ryuhana closed in 2004 as the
primary proprietors went off to college and opened a new business in
California, according to the website. Other contributors to the site could
not be reached for comment.

The defunct company listed an address in Fort Meade, Maryland, next door to
the National Security Agency.

On a
separate web forum
,
writing as The True HOOHA, Mr Snowden suggested
that the company he was working for had offered him a two-year posting
overseas and that he could choose the country. He said his list of preferred
destinations was Japan, Thailand, Korea, China and Australia.

No state meets all hospital goals: report



NO state or territory has met all its elective surgery or emergency department targets set out in the $3.3 billion COAG partnership to improve public hospitals.


Some states came close to achieving all targets, but the first report on COAG’s health partnership found results were “mixed” overall.

NSW, Victoria and the Northern Territory performed worst against emergency department goals.

There, the proportion of emergency department patients admitted to hospital, referred on or discharged within four hours was below the 2010 baseline, according to the report.

Each state and territory had a target to reach last year, and has agreed to reach 90 per cent by 2015.

WA achieved its emergency department targets, and the ACT, Queensland, Tasmania and South Australia partially met theirs.

The ACT was the only state to meet all elective surgery targets.

COAG reform council chair John Brumby said although some targets had only been partially met there were some good performances from governments.

“These findings coupled with those in our recent report on the National Healthcare Agreement show that governments are taking steps to improve our health system, but they have their work cut out for them,” Mr Brumby said.

He said that with four years left in the agreement there was still time for governments to achieve timely emergency department and elective surgery care.

Queensland failed to meet the previous year’s baseline targets in six of the nine elective surgery categories, and only achieved its target in one.

Tasmania also only met one out of nine elective surgery targets.

Under the National Partnership on Improving Public Hospitals, reward payments of up to $400 million are available at the discretion of the Commonwealth.

NSW political assassin legal bid fails



THE man convicted of murdering NSW Labor MP John Newman in Australia’s first political assassination has been denied more time to make an appeal over his life sentence.


Phuong Ngo had applied for more time to seek permission to appeal in the NSW Court of Criminal Appeal.

Ngo, then aged 43, was jailed for life in 2001 for murdering Mr Newman, his political rival and the state member for Cabramatta, in September 1994.

Mr Newman was shot twice in the chest at point blank range as he placed a tarpaulin over his car after arriving at his Cabramatta home following a Labor Party branch meeting.

The jury found Ngo, a former Fairfield councillor, masterminded Mr Newman’s murder by planning and enlisting others to carry out the shooting.

Ngo was tried three times after one jury was discharged for legal reasons and another failed to reach a verdict.

A 2003 Court of Criminal Appeal application was dismissed, a judicial review of his conviction failed and an application for special leave to appeal to the High Court was also refused.

MOVE over Lara Bingle and Crocodile Dundee – a host of new faces have arrived Down Under to help sell Australia to the world.


The 18 finalists in Tourism Australia’s Best Jobs in the World competition have landed in Sydney for the final stage of the promotion.

The finalists, from countries including the USA, France and Afghanistan, will spend the next week taking part in a range of final challenges as they vie for the six dream jobs on offer around Australia.

Interactive: Who should win the Best Jobs in the World?

The finalists will visit the Sydney Opera House today before heading to Taronga Zoo on Friday and taking part in a game of footy with the Sydney Swans.

They will then fly off to the respective states and territories they are finalists in to undergo group and individual tasks to assess their aptitude for the job as well as their social media, presentation and communication skills.

In NSW the “chief funster” will present an MTV travel report based on a day of adventure activities in regional NSW and go behind the scenes as a VIP guest at some of Sydney’s leading hot spots.

Melbourne’s lifestyle photographer will explore inner-city Melbourne and capture the journey in

words and photos for a news article.

The Northern Territory’s Outback adventurer will undertake a “road trip challeng” through the Red Centre which will include swimming in a waterhole, navigating to local attractions and identifying the Southern Cross constellation.

Queensland’s park ranger will take part in a nature-based adventure through the eucalypt and rainforest canopy, involving treetop rope climbs, Tarzan swings and a giant flying fox while Western Australia’s taste master will explore one of Western Australia’s most renowned food and wine regions and South Australia’s wildlife caretaker will act as a tour guide at Seal Bay Conservation Park, tracking echidnas and promoting their experience through social media.

The six winners will be announced in Sydney on June 21.

The Tourism Australia competition is part of a major international marketing push

to promote tourism opportunities provided by Australia’s Working Holiday Maker program.

Steroids nabbed in airport searches



TWO men have been caught trying to import performance and image enhancing drugs and paintball gun parts through Perth’s airport, authorities say.


Customs and Border Protection officers seized nearly 12,000 tables, 480ml of prohibited steroids, two flick knives and paintball gun parts this week after two separate searches.

A 38-year-old man from Perth who arrived on a flight from Thailand was found with 7500 capsules of steroids without a permit, authorities said.

Another man from Iran, 26, drew suspicion during an x-ray of his bag and 142 vials, 4310 capsules and two bottles of illegally imported steroids, and the weapons were uncovered.

Customs said the offences drew fines of up to $170,000 and up to five years in prison if found guilty.

PRIME Minister Julia Gillard today met with “Governator” Arnold Schwarzenegger as the Hollywood star begins his Australian tour.


Ms Gillard and the former muscle man met this morning in Perth to discuss climate change as the PM continues her visit to WA.

The meeting follows the start of Schwarzenegger’s Australian tour on Wednesday night, when he shared jokes and stories during a motivational speech at the 21st Century Financial Education Summit.

He joked that they key to success with 23-inch biceps, killing predators, time travel and an Austrian accent before giving a more serious run down.

The way to succeed was to find your vision, think big rather than small, ignore naysayers, work your butt off and give back, according to the international star.

Citing an Austrian saying, Schwarzenegger said: “If you do something, then go all out and do it well.”

He said if he had listened to naysayers, he would still be yodelling in the Austrian alps now.

The actor-turned-politician led a tumultuous two terms in office in California during which the famously rich state suffered a massive blow to its budget, leaving it with a deficit of billions of dollars.

Opposition Leader Tony Abbott was critical of the Prime Minister taking time to meet Shwarzenegger, saying Ms Gillard might have instead dedicated her time to constructive discussions with the premiers on education.

“I’m pleased that the Prime Minister is prepared to have constructive discussions with someone,” he said.

“I just wish she was much more agreeable and amenable to having constructive and consultative discussions with the premiers.”

Edward Snowden’s stark revelations about how the criminal government is collecting information on citizen’s web and phone usage has further exposed the depths of depravity that this government has sunk to.

Snowden Is An American Hero With a Short Life Expectancy

What would you sacrifice to defend liberty?

What would you sacrifice to defend liberty?

Snowden has sacrificed everything to bring the American people the truth. He has given up his lucrative position, his girlfriend, his home, his family and he is risking his life. If Ambassador Chris Stevens was murdered to cover up the Obama’s gun running to al-Qaeda in Libya and later in Syria, does any reasonable person believe that Snowden’s life is not jeopardy?

Snowden has taken this enormous risk to simply bring attention to the criminal government that live we now live under along with their plans for total enslavement.  Ask yourself, if the government was not planning to enslave and exterminate many of us, then why are they going to such extraordinary lengths to determine what is in our hearts and minds by spying on our every move?

Snowden said that he does not want to live in a world where there isn’t any privacy and where everything that he says and does is recorded. Thanks to Snowden, we now know that the U.S. government has been spying on us to a level that most people would not have thought possible.

I was personally stunned at the seriousness of many of the comments made by Snowden in a recent interview. The implications related to his revelations are dramatic and should serve as a warning to the American public that the greatest threat to not only personal liberty, but to life expectancy, comes from this criminal government under a fascist dictator who in all likelihood will use these practices to never leave office.

Make no mistake about it the NSA is establishing the hierarchy of assassination and the list reads something like this, Ambassador Stevens, Edward Snowden and You!   

In the following paragraphs, I have listed some of Snowden’s quotes along with the obvious implications.

 

“The government has granted itself power it is not entitled to. There is no public oversight. The result is people like myself have the latitude to go further than they are allowed to.”

"Every move you make, every breath you take, they'll be watching you."

“Every move you make, every breath you take, they’ll be watching you.”

It should be clear to all that we now live in a country that has no rules. The passage of the NDAA should have been the wake up call on this point, but for most Americans, it was not. However, there is no escaping the implications of the revelation that our government is watching and listening to every move we make.

It should be clear to all that we now live in a country that has no rules. The passage of the NDAA should have been the wake up call on this point, but for most Americans, it was not. However, there is no criminal governmentescaping the implications related to the revelation that our government is watching and listening to every move we make. I cannot help thinking about all the times that we in the alternative media were vilified for informing our followers that technocracy and the resulting police state surveillance grid would be the total death of all liberty in this country and would likely be the catalyst to genocide directed at those whose NSA “threat matrix score” is too high. I take no pleasure in “having the last laugh,” because being a member of the alternative media is a sure ticket to the top of the Red list.

                                                         

“We collect more digital communications from America than we do from the Russians.”

Americans are the new enemies of the state. Before the globalists can conquer the world, they must first clean up their own house. The unwarranted surveillance Americans are being exposed to, which is above and beyond what we subject our traditional enemies to, speaks as to who is the real enemy in the eyes of the state.

truth no longer mattersThrough the MIAC report and recent DHS proclamations, it is clear that this government considers Libertarians, Constitutionalists, Second Amendment advocates, gun owners, former Ron Paul supporters, veterans and Christians as a bigger threat the state than the Russians, Chinese, Iran and North Korea. Except for never having served in the armed forces, I meet everyone of the MIAC identified enemies of the state.

 

“Allowing the U.S. government to intimidate its people with threats of retaliation for revealing wrongdoing is contrary to the public interest.”

Just like under the Stasi in the former East Germany, American citizens now need to watch everything they say and do. All Americans now live under the presumption of guilt.  American citizens, today, must prove their innocence through their actions, or they go on any number of “Core” lists. This is Communitarian law, not Constitutional law.  The NSA has totally subverted the fundamental precepts of the Constitution, namely, innocent until proven guilty in a court of law. Now, to stay off the “Red list,” a citizen must avoid being in the proximity of persons of concern (i.e., anyone who disagrees with the government), “dissident” websites like the one you are reading now, they must not own a gun, be a veteran, ever have uttered an electronic word of support for Ron Paul, or to not have voted positively on governmental desired mandates. It is very easy to become an enemy of the state.

Representative Waters Confirms Snowden’s Assertions

Support for Snowden’s conclusions comes from a close ally of the President, Representative Maxine Waters. Recently, Representative Maxine Waters expressed some very anti-American views  to Roland Martin, when she proclaimed that President Obama has “put in place an organization with the kind of database that no one has ever seen before in life,” which “will have information about

Representative Maxine Waters "Obama is watching everything you do."

Representative Maxine Waters “Obama is watching everything you do.”

everything on every individual…”  Waters went on to bemoan the fact that Obama’s reign will presumptively end on 2016, but went on to say that  “The President has put in place an organization [Organizing for America] that contains the kind of database that no one has ever seen before in life. That’s going to be very, very powerful…” And was Waters continued “And that database will have information about everything on every individual in ways that it’s never been done before.”


Snowden’s Greatest Fear

Snowden was asked if his family knew what he was up to and he answered “No. My family does not know what is happening … My primary fear is that they will come after my family, my friends, my partner. Anyone I have a relationship with …” 

Totalitarian regimes enforce compliance of its own servants by threatening the family of whistle blowing noncompliant minions. Hitler did it, Stalin, as did Castro and so is the NSA. This government views you as the enemy and Snowden’s response to the question makes it clear that this government is as evil as any totalitarian government ever created and in fairness to this administration, we were warned.

“I do not want to live in a world where everything I do and say is recorded. That is not something I am willing to support or live under.”

 

Just like Ambassador Stevens, Snowden is a marked man. He has said he never expects to see home again and he questions how long he will be alive. These fears expressed by Snowden are well founded.

As reported in a  Daily Mail article that was posted on June 10th, a reporter overheard a group of U.S. intelligence officials talking about how Edward Snowden should be “disappeared”.  The following is an excerpt from this article. 

A group of intelligence officials were overheard yesterday discussing how the National Security Agency worker who leaked sensitive documents to a reporter last week should be ‘disappeared.’

Foreign policy analyst and editor at large of The Atlantic, Steve Clemons, tweeted about the ‘disturbing’ conversation after listening in to four men who were sitting near him as he waited for a flight at Washington’s Dulles airport.

‘In Dulles UAL lounge listening to 4 US intel officials saying loudly that a reporter on the NSA stuff should be disappeared recorded a bit,’ he tweeted at 8:42 a.m. on Saturday.

According to Clemons, the men had been attending an event hosted by the Intelligence and National Security Alliance.

Sadly, a recent poll stated that about half of all Americans are ignorant enough to support these extreme police state in order to keep us safe. You know, let’s fight the CIA controlled and funded al-Qaeda and enslave the American people, so we can take away everyone’s rights.  Of course, nobody is claiming that Americans are not dumbed down.

Everyone has to derive their own meaning as to how they will respond to this stunning revelation of tyranny. For myself, I have entered the beginning stages of reconsidering expatriation. I know the arguments against, however, we need to be mindful, that we live in one of the most criminal governments on the planet where we murder millions of citizens abroad for daring to disagree with us. Now, our criminal government is preparing to do the same at home to its own citizens.

Saudi Prince sues Forbes magazine for not listing his wealth to be $29.6 billion

It was first reported that Alwaleed is suing the magazine because he was listed as the 26th richest person in the world. Alwaleed believes he should have been higher on the list because he is worth $9.6 billion more than the magazine reported. Forbes listed Alwaleed’s worth to be $20 billion while Alwaleed says it is $29.6 billion.

Alwaleed says he is suing Forbes magazine for what he called its “deliberately insulting and inaccurate description of the business community in Saudi Arabia.”

Speaking through the spokeswoman, Maggie Simpson, Alwaleed said his suit against Forbes is about correcting seriously defamatory comments that have been made about HRH Prince Alwaleed as an individual and about his company, Kingdom Holding Co. (HKG:0528). According to Alwaleed, the article insinuated that he manipulated the price of shares of Kingdom Holding.

Forbes is sticking to its story. Kerry A. Dolan is the 19-year Forbes veteran who calculated Alwaleed’s wealth for the list. She said in a blog that she evaluated his worth by the underlying value, not solely by the share prices.

Forbes’ spokeswoman, Mia Carbonell, said the magazine has not yet been served with papers, despite news that a complaint was filed last week.

In an email, Carbonell said:

“We continue to be bemused by Prince Alwaleed’s ego-driven PR stunt. Our story raises significant questions about his finances, and we would welcome the opportunity to uncover further relevant information during the course of any hypothetical suit.”
