Did someone help Ed Snowden punch a hole in the NSA?

Ed Snowden, NSA leaker. Honest man. Doing what was right. Bravo.

That still doesn’t preclude the possibility that, unknown to him, he was managed by people to put him the right place to expose NSA secrets.

Snowden’s exposure of NSA was a righteous act, because that agency is a RICO criminal. But that doesn’t mean we have the whole story.

How many people work in classified jobs for the NSA? And here is one man, Snowden, who is working for Booz Allen, an outside contractor, but is assigned to NSA, and he can get access to, and copy, documents that expose the spying collaboration between NSA and the biggest tech companies in the world—and he can get away with it.

If so, then NSA is a sieve leaking out of all holes. Because that means a whole lot of other, higher NSA employees can likewise steal these documents. Many, many other people can copy them and take them. Poof.

If the NSA is not a sieve, it’s quite correct to suspect Snowden, a relatively low-level man, was guided and helped.

Does that diminish what Snowden accomplished? No. But it casts it in a different light.

Or you can believe a scenario like this:

Mr. Snowden, I’m closing up now for the day. Do you need anything before I go?”

No thanks, Sarah, I’ll be staying late tonight.”

NSA isn’t a little community bank or a liquor store. We aren’t talking about an employee with a printer and a file folder to hold top-secret pieces of paper he carries in a briefcase out of the office on his way home.

If there are people who arranged Snowden’s access to NSA secrets, without him knowing it, they’ll be obscured by the maze of partisan political squabbling and Congressional idiots holding hearings.

Between these morons and the press, the public will be treated, night and day, to the following: Can Snowden be extradited back here? Is he a terrorist? Should those giant tech companies have agreed to supply the government with information on private citizens? If so, how much information? Etc., etc. Diversions. False trails.

To understand who might have been behind Snowden, we first need to understand the real reach of the Surveillance State.

The Surveillance State has created an apparatus whose implications are staggering. It’s a different world now. And sometimes it takes a writer of fiction to flesh out the larger landscape.

Brad Thor’s novel, Black List, posits the existence of a monster corporation, ATS, that stands along side the NSA in collecting information on every move we make. ATS’ intelligence-gathering capability is unmatched anywhere in the world.

At his site, www.BradThor.com, the author lists some of the open-source material he discovered that formed the basis for Black List. The material, as well as the novel, is worth reading.

On pages 117-118 of Black List, Thor makes a stunning inference that, on reflection, is as obvious as the fingers on your hand:

For years ATS [substitute NSA] had been using its technological superiority to conduct massive insider trading. Since the early 1980s, the company had spied on anyone and everyone in the financial world. They listened in on phone calls, intercepted faxes, and evolved right along with the technology, hacking internal computer networks and e-mail accounts. They created mountains of ‘black dollars’ for themselves, which they washed through various programs they were running under secret contract, far from the prying eyes of financial regulators.

Those black dollars were invested into hard assets around the world, as well as in the stock market, through sham, offshore corporations. They also funneled the money into reams of promising R&D projects, which eventually would be turned around and sold to the Pentagon or the CIA.

In short, ATS had created its own license to print money and had assured itself a place beyond examination or reproach.”

(For more, click here.)

In real life, whether the prime criminal source is one monster corporation or the NSA itself, the outcome would be the same.

Total surveillance has unlimited payoffs when it targets financial markets and the people who have intimate knowledge of them.

Total security awareness” programs of surveillance are ideal spying ops in the financial arena, designed to grab millions of bits of inside information, and then utilize them to make investments and suck up billions (trillions?) of dollars.

It gives new meaning to “the rich get richer.”

Taking the overall scheme to another level, consider this: those same heavy hitters (NSA) who have unfettered access to financial information can also choose, at opportune moments, to expose certain scandals and crimes.

In this way, they can, at their whim, cripple governments, banks, and corporations. They can cripple investment houses, insurance companies, and hedge funds. Or, alternatively, they can merely blackmail these organizations.

It’s likely that the probe Ron Paul has been pushing—audit the Federal Reserve—has already been done by those who control unlimited global surveillance. They already know far more than any Congressional investigation will uncover. If they know the deepest truths, they can use them to blackmail, manipulate, and control the Fed itself.

Corruption on top of corruption.

In this global-surveillance world, we need to ask new questions and think along different lines now.

For example, how long before the mortgage-derivative crisis hit did the Masters of Surveillance know, from spying on bank records, that insupportable debt was accumulating at a lethal pace? What did they do with that information?

When did they know that at least a trillion dollars was missing from Pentagon accounting books (as Donald Rumsfeld eventually admitted on 9/10/2001), and what did they do with that information?

Did they discover precisely where the trillion dollars went? Did they discover where billions of dollars, in cash, shipped to post-war Iraq, disappeared to?

When did they know the details of the Libor rate-fixing scandal? Press reports indicate that Barclays was trying to rig interest rates as early as January 2005.

Have they tracked, in detail, the men responsible for recruiting hired mercenaries and terrorists, who eventually wound up in Syria pretending to be an authentic rebel force?

Have they discovered the truth about how close or how far away Iran is from producing a nuclear weapon?

Have they collected detailed accounts of the most private plans of Bilderberg, CFR, and Trilateral Commission leaders?

For global surveillance kings, what we think of as the future is, in many respects the present and the past.

It’s a new world. These overseers of universal information-detection can enter and probe the most secret caches of data, collect, collate, cross reference, and assemble them into vital bottom-lines. By comparison, an operation like Wikileaks is an old Model-T Ford puttering down a country road, and Julian Assange is a mere piker.

The Matrix Revealed

Previously, we thought we needed to look over the shoulders of the men who were committing major crimes out of public view. But now, if we want to be up to date, we also have to factor in the men who are spying on those criminals, who are gathering up those secrets and using them to commit their own brand of meta-crime.

And in the financial arena, that means we think of Goldman Sachs and JP Morgan as perpetrators, yes, but we also think about the men who already know everything about GS and Morgan, and are using this knowledge to steal sums that might make GS and Morgan blush with envy.

Therefore….when looking for who might have helped Ed Snowden punch a hole in NSA, we should think about who the NSA has been spying on. Not the little guy, not the medium-sized guy, but a very big guy. Perhaps a Goldman Sachs or a JP Morgan.

At the highest levels of criminal power, the players don’t always agree. It’s not always a smooth conspiracy. There is fierce in-fighting as well.

Goldman Sachs, Chase, and Morgan consider trillion-dollar trading markets their own private golden-egg farm. They run it, they own it, they manipulate it for their own ends.

If NSA has been looking over their shoulders for the past 30 years, discovering all their knowledge, and operating a meta invasion, siphoning off enormous profits, NSA would rate as Enemy Number One.

And would need to be torpedoed.

Enter Ed Snowden.

Exit From the Matrix

Looking elsewhere, consider this. Snowden worked for the CIA. He was pushed up the ranks quickly, from an IT position in the US to a posting in Geneva, under diplomatic cover, to run security on the CIA’s computer systems there.

Then, Snowden quit the CIA and eventually ended up at Booz Allen, a private contractor. He was assigned to NSA, where he stole the secrets and exposed the NSA.

The CIA and NSA have a long contentious relationship. The major issue is, who is king of US intelligence? We’re talking about an internal war.

Snowden could have been the CIA’s man at NSA, where certain CIA players helped him access files he wouldn’t have been able to tap otherwise.

You can bet your bottom dollar that NSA analysts are looking into this possibility right now.

    Brilliant insight. The Daily Bell ran a story yesterday on how this is almost certainly an elite promotion designed to guide the public toward accepting and legitimizing totalitarianism, which I believe is also possible. So far the evidence points to one or the other: elite promotion or internal warfare. Actually, it could be both. What is almost certain is that it/s not just an idealistic young man doing what he believes is right for humanity. That part is probably true. But he would not have made it to the Guardian if THEY did not want him there.

  2. Bill F. says:

    Fantastic reasoning, Jon. I also think it could be the criminal elements of the government making it seem like they’re cleaning house, thereby extending their life another 4 yrs., or 8 yrs., as it may be. I can envision the campaign in 2016 now: a young, upstart Republican candidate runs on the platform of dismantling the Obama Spy Ring, only to change their tune drastically after being elected, in the name of “National Security”.

  3. Daniel Noel says:

    Snowden’s biggest helpers are the bully pulpits Jon very correctly mentions in his article, who are initiating a public mega-argument over several important issues connected with the Snowden incident. These bully pulpits will keep “us the gullible people” arguing over these issues and will pit well-meaning activists against each other over them, for instance whether threats of grand terror justify illegal information gathering.

    This will conveniently contribute to distracting a little bit more the public from the mother conspiracy of systematic and worldwide obfuscation that is so well shown by the remarkably effective censorship (http://www.911censorship.com/twin%20towers'%20censorship.htm) of the twin towers’ criminal controlled demolition by countless organizations that ought to denounce it (like anti-war or Muslim groups).

    The Masters of Plato’s global cave are much smarter than many dissidents give them credit for.

    Excellent supplementary post Jon

    Some sources do say that Julian Assange is a “CIA man”. The only thing you didn’t cover is how marvellously wonderful paedophilia has been in “aiding and abetting” this conspiracy. You both have the automatic “right” to snoop on anyone justified by the “world’s worst evil” (sic) and for anyone who doesn’t capitulate with your evil plan, you can first “tar and feather” with false claims and then toss ’em in jail, if necessary. Use Zio-media to assert there is a Satanic order linking all at the top – united in their “paedophile practices” and then serve up a few well connected posthumous fall guys (Jimmy Saville and so on) and you have a…….”fait accompli”.

    How much money has been raised in the war on paedophilia and how is it used?

    Damn Jon.

    Brilliant article man. You made me think in ways I wasn’t used to. I mean, I had considered the possibility of major government agencies using their access for the purpose of financial gain for individuals, but I hadn’t thought about it like this.

    The thing is, if this is going on, there is a metric shit ton load of money laying around somewhere. Who has access to that? How do you hide that much money?

    a lot in a name…

    Snowed in = snow job…

    If it is covered well in the MSM it is a false flag… meaning, not a commoner or one of us slaves turned whistleblower. No sirree, there’s an agenda with this story… we’ll figure it out later, but one thing for sure, awake persons know the spying has been going on since they invented the census, the landline phones (tellephone LOL), social security number, IRS, banks and on and on and on…

  8. Mulder says:

    Excellent. It is wonderful to find someone who knows how to think! It is clear someone is running a game on us. The only thing this guy “exposed” were programs legally allowed by Congress. So no real damage was done except to the rubes that run around wringing their hands. I’ll bet Goldman and the money boys are having nightmares.

  9. Jon, I definitely think you are on to something here. May I suggest another angle? What if Snowden was guided, as you said, so that these leaks would serve as a type of limited hangout bc the real security capabilities are mind boggling? -Just to consider- If there truly is a breakaway civilization, then the technology could be amazing. For instance what if the nano particulates from chemtrails that we ingest and carry and that are stuck to everything could serve as digital nodes for the compilation of a real time virtual map of all actions, even the movements of fingers stroking keys? Or data from lips in verbal orchestration? What if the public finally takes a stand and says no to this NSA biz (yeah right) or the government is forced to retract its reach but it’s only bc this PRISM surveillance technology is officially obsolete?

  10. I think you’ve blown some minds with this perspective, Jon. You’re beginning to sound like Mike Ruppert (and I like it)!

  11. joanie says:

    how about this agenda – because the game, I’ll title, “controlled earth” they have to tell us what they are doing to us, and there ya go – they’ve publicly stated for all the world to know. So now the point is, what are the sheeple going to do about it — big brother watches and records everything, whether you are in your car, on the phone and even when your computer is off, it listens… heh. Fine you say, not when anything can and will be used against you.

  12. Avi says:

    don’t you find it weird that Britain, THE precursor (google ECHELON) in evesdropping, is dumping the US ? Mainland EU did not support America in the 2nd Irak war. The fact that England conveniently withdraw from its US ties must mean a big war is coming in which all the NWO Homeland does not want to be consider part of. Bad.

  13. I suspect you’re correct. And it reminds me of the way Anonymous works: getting into any site they choose to get into. Goldman Sachs is probably behind most everything. And the new Bloomberg Government is the fascist model of the future, I mean the present. Washington is already being branded as Bloomberg Government. Who need the constitution when we have business running government? All we need is investors, total control, and a good business plan. World domination, privatized, at US taxpayer expense. Now to bring the daily scandal to an end, the military needs to take out Syria, Lebanon, Iran, North Korea, and bring their banks online with Goldman Sachs.

  14. Cheryl Hugle says:

    The CIA and NSA are NOT enemies. What rubbish!

    I have worked with both (and in computer security) and they absolutely support each other, often co-sponsoring many programs.

    The elephant in the room though is the Empire that definitely has been using surveillance for the types of blackmail mentioned in the article. And that isn’t new. There is an article dated 1955 about being able to intercept minimally all phone calls.. but also to pretty much bug anywhere. http://www.bugsweeps.com/info/colliers_6-10-55.html

    Industrial and political spies used all these means to insure that officials did what they were asked… and that technologies were transferred to their favorite institutions (Bell Labs) being one glaring case in point… to be developed as they chose…

    The CIA and NSA are both run by the very same concerns that spawned them. In the case of the CIA, this goes back to English and Nazi post ‘war’ roots… and also to the US Nazi elite; some already deep in the industrial political spying business already.

  15. Avi says:

    Yes !! NSA spying originates in England TOO:

    “Overseas, Menwith Hill, the NSA’s giant satellite listening post in Yorkshire, England that sports 33 giant dome-covered eavesdropping dishes, is also undergoing a multi-million-dollar expansion, with $68 million alone being spent on a generator plant to provide power for new supercomputers. And the number of people employed on the base, many of them employees of Lockheed Martin and Northrop Grumman, is due to increase from 1,800 to 2,500 in 2015, according to a study done in Britain”


    How the hell can Britain deny a FACT ????????????????

    “In the House of Commons, William Hague denied GCHQ complicity with NSA data mining.”

    “The Vision Working Group of the Project on National Security Reform began its efforts in December 2005 when the Honorable James R. Locher III, soon to be the Project’s Executive Director, met with the author and Robert B. Polk and Daniel R. Langberg of the Institute for Defense Analyses to discuss the urgent need for national security reform.

    “But it is much more than that. What PNSR seeks to do is to inspire a whole-of-government approach to fundamental changes in the nature of the scope of the challenge to national security.”

    “It is particularly important that the proposal for a Center for Strategic Analysis and Assessment also locates this entity in the Office of the President. Fragments of such a system exist in various parts of the Federal Government. But no single system exists for the application of foresight to governance as a whole. Moreover, the place where this capability is most critically needed is as close to the President as possible.”

    You’re right the NSA does monitor all communications worldwide. That is it though only communication TRANSMISSIONS. All data (voice calls, fax, text, radio, satellite and all internet activity).

    This is not an invasion of your privacy. Hear me out before you disagree due to a lack of understanding.

    In the United States its a violation of our constitutional rights to violate our privacy. Yet once we leave our private property and enter public space an officer can follow you and watch your every move.

    This is the same for the NSA’S surveillance program. They are not peering into your desktop, laptop, smart phone, or tablet. They’re only monitoring, filtering and identifying keywords important only to matters of National security (hence National Security Agency). The exact reason why although though the NSA monitors all of the worlds transmissions they don’t concern themselves that are not matters of national security.

    The NSA is a division of the military who’s offices are located at Ft Meade. MILITARY. The NSA is an observe and report operation.

    If a self-radicalized terrorist in the US is talking to a friend on the phone and says keywords like bomb, white house etc that alone will not alert the NSA. He’d need to have several calls and texts with flagging keywords and have internet transmissions with flagging keywords. Then the NSA would review and if deemed as interest to national security would then forward the information to the FBI.

    So again, once the phone starts ringing, once the fax is sent, once the text or email is sent and once you’ve hit the go button after typing in an internet address you’re communication is now in public space and is in no way shape or form protected by laws of privacy.

    Off subject, who didn’t know about the NSA’S global surveillance net? Blowing the whistle on what? Snowden is a delusional paranoid man. In an interview he stated he doesn’t use google search because of the NSA. Weird because having worked for the NSA he should know the NSA monitors all internet worldwide. I promise you the NSA played Edward Snowden right into this unknowing to snowden.
