Edward Snowden, the NSA whistleblower who stole thousands of classified documents before leaving the United States recently made an unexpected and unscheduled appearance at a TED conference in Vancouver, Canada on Tuesday night. It was done so VIA satellite robot, where he emphasized that there is still a lot of reporting to be done.
What has come as a surprise to many, is the fact that the NSA and other intelligence organizations, as Snowden puts it, “a super national intelligence organization that doesn’t answer to the laws of its own countries,” has been spying on what seems to be the entire global population.

Washington, enabled by its compliant but stupid NATO puppets, is pushing the Ukrainian situation closer to war.
German Chancellor Merkel has failed her country, Europe, and world peace. Germany is the strength of the EU and NATO. Had Merkel said “No” to sanctions on Russia, that would have been the end of the crisis that Washington is brewing, a crisis unlikely to be ended short of war.
But Merkel has signed away the sovereignty of the German nation and assigned the fate of Germany to a province in the American Empire. Thus has Merkel and the weak
German leadership consigned the world to war. Already blamed for World War 1 and World War 2, now Germany will be blamed for World War 3.
Washington’s mismanaged Ukrainian coup has cost Washington Crimea, which Washington wanted most of all in order to deprive Russia of its warm water naval base on the Black Sea. In addition, the mismanaged overthrow of an elected government in Ukraine is threatening to also lose the Russian cities of eastern Ukraine. Like Crimea, eastern Ukraine is more Russian than Ukrainian.
The Navy Times reports:
"The death of a Navy commander found in a room at the Astoria Hotel on Feb. 12 was ruled a homicide, the Orange Park [Florida] Police Department announced Wednesday.
The Jacksonville Medical Examiner's Office made the ruling on Feb. 13 in the death of Cmdr. Alphonso Doss, 44, of Pensacola, according to the release from the OPPD.
Doss' manner of death is not being released at this time while the OPPD and the Clay County Sheriff's Office investigate.
Doss reported to Naval Education and Training Command in Nov. 2011, according to the Navy.
While in Jacksonville, he was on Temporary Additional Duty orders at the Naval Aviation Technical Training Unit.
The Bolivar Commercial reported in 2012 (my bold)
Navy Commander Alphonso Mortimer Doss was recently promoted to his current rank in a ceremony held at Navy Operational Support Center Jacksonville, Fla.
Doss is a 1987 honor graduate of Ruleville Central High School in Ruleville.
Upon graduating from high school, Doss enlisted into the Navy.

“$8.5 TRILLION In Taxpayer Money Doled Out By Congress To The Pentagon Since 1996 … Has NEVER Been Accounted For”
Military Waste and Fraud Are the Main Cause of Our Problems
We’ve repeatedly documented that military waste and fraud are the core problems with the U.S. economy.
For example, we’ve noted that we wouldn’t be in this crisis of hitting the debt ceiling in the first place if we hadn’t spent so much money on unnecessary wars … which are horrible for the economy.
But it goes far beyond actual fighting. We could easily slash the military and security budget without reducing our national security.

(Reuters) - A U.S. appeals court on Thursday revived claims by families of victims of the September 11, 2001, attacks who alleged that Saudi Arabia provided material support to al Qaeda.
"... Reps. Walter B. Jones, R-N.C., and Stephen Lynch, D-Mass., were given access to the 28 redacted pages of the Joint Intelligence Committee Inquiry (JICI) of 9/11 issued in late 2002, which have been thought to hold some answers about the Saudi connection to the attack.
"I was absolutely shocked by what I read," Jones told International Business Times. "What was so surprising was that those whom we thought we could trust really disappointed me."
THANK YOU ReThink911 Supporters... WE DID IT.
Together we raised $25,000 in just 3 days to keep our 54' Tall Billboard
in Times Square for the Big Month of October – Thanks to All of You.
Now we must strive to ensure that news coverage about it expands. Stay tuned for a
detailed action plan, and get ready to get involved. With thousands of emails to key
news outlets, we can make the BUILDING 7 story go viral worldwide.
In the meantime, let's start the month off right with our old friend, Geraldo Rivera
from Geraldo at Large on FOX News. Please take five minutes right now to
email him at these email addresses, and ask him to report on the ReThink911 Ad
Campaign (while thanking him for his coverage of BUILDING 7 three years ago).
After all, the Billboard is only one block from his Studio. With several hundred Emails
in his inbox, he can't say they didn't know about it. We need his help again.
Next: YouTube, Ben Swann, Abby Martin, Luke Rudkowski, Alex Jones & RT.
H E L P Us Get The Truth About BUILDING 7 NOW.
The owner of our Times Sq. Billboard has offered to allow us to keep
the space we have for the the month of October for $25,000 which is
a $19,000 discount. This is a rare opportunity to continue our campaign
for the Truth about BUILDING 7.
If we can raise $25,000 by the end of this Monday 9/30, we can keep
our Big 54-Foot Tall message at Times Square in downtown New York City
for the full month of October.
WE NEED YOUR HELP TODAY.
This would allow us to reach millions more people and gain additional media coverage
of our critically important message about BUILDING 7.
A chance to get this level of exposure for this low a price doesn't come along
very often. (The original billboard cost us $44,000!)
Please Donate what you can now ... ($5.00 from 5,000 people and we have it)
If we’re not living in a militarized police state, then please explain what (why) Ohio State University could possibly need with one of these. (?)
The Ohio State University Department of Public Safety has acquired an armored military vehicle that looks like it belongs in Iraq or Afghanistan.
Gary Lewis, a senior director of media relations at OSU, told The Daily Caller via email that the “unique, special-purpose vehicle is a replacement” for the “police fleet.” He called the armored jalopy “an all-hazard, all-purpose, public safety-response vehicle” with “obviously enhanced capabilities.”
He noted that the vehicle was “acquired at no cost from Military Surplus.”
