France, Mexico seek answers
after ´shocking´ US spy claims

Agence France Presse, by Staff

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 10/21/2013 6:34:01 AM

Paris- France and Mexico have angrily demanded prompt explanations from the United States following "shocking" new spying allegations leaked by former US security contractor Edward Snowden. The reports published in French daily Le Monde and German weekly Der Spiegel reveal that the US National Security Agency secretly monitored tens of millions of phone calls in France and hacked into former Mexican President Felipe Calderon´s email account. They come on top of revelations also leaked by Snowden and published in June that the US had a vast, secret programme called PRISM to monitor Internet users. French Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius, on a

In the long run I think what Snowden did will be seen as a good thing for the country.

You know what shocks me? The fact that not enough people here in the United States are shocked enough about the extent to which our government is putting every single one of us under constant and unconstitutional surveillance to do a darn thing about it.

Congress has been gumming this issue toothlessly for months. Their leisurely pace seems unlikely to result in any meaningful controls. Our media seem less concerned about our loss of freedoms than about the star quality and notorious celebrity of Edward Snowden. And the public seems totally unconcerned, going about their daily lives like cows chewing grasses just before being sent to slaughterhouses.

So count me among those that are happy to see somebody out there truly shocked by the Orwellian drift of our government...even if it´s only France.

"Trust but verify."

Words from the great Ronaldus. Would you trust either France or Mexico not to backstab the US? Especially when we have a little commie dictator who throws his friends under the bus on a daily basis? The little worm in the White House wouldn´t trust his own wife unless she told him to.

Well it´s because of the paranoid, control freak commies in DC. They will leave no stone unturned in an effort to gleen as much information to stay in power, give them an edge(including extortion, blackmail) in any potential situation that comes up. Who it comes from is irrelevant as long as they benefit from it. Those, like the DC snakes, with no emotions aren´t concerned about accusals of betrayal. Just take it for granted any aspect that might undermine one world rule would have to be addressed/eliminated. Of course the DC commies never considered that the snoopees would learn of it. Nonetheless their modus will continue, just like IRS harassment of tea party groups, even after being caught. It´s just a bump in the road to the vulcans, I mean DC commies.

The reason there´s so much stuff to look at is because your state governments require that it be created by your communications common carriers.

Regarding France and Mexico, we need to keep them under observation 24/7.

Regular bombing runs would let them know we mean business too!

In general Americans consider their government(s) independently from the politicians who haunt them.

The Brits refer to the ruling clique as "the government´

Really different usage ~ so, do you fear Obamugabe and his running dog lackeys spying on you, or do you fear the State legislature spying on you.

Hank Aaron’s recent comments about the need for America to realize that racism is still very much alive and thriving — only now due to those who wear “neckties and starched shirts” rather than KKK hoods — has sparked an angry backlash and many fans are turning the tables, calling the baseball legend himself a racist. “Hank Aaron is a s*****g piece of [expletive] [racial slur],” one man said in an email to the Atlanta Braves’ front office, one of the teams Mr. Aaron used to play for, CBS News reported. “My old man instilled in my mind from a

U.S. military assets in the Black Sea are on high alert amid reports Ukraine troops traded gunfire Tuesday with pro-Russian militants. A journalist with Associated Press reported intense gunfire at an airport in eastern Ukraine after the government sent in army troops to retake control from militiamen loyal to Russian President Vladimir Putin. The mayor of Kramatorsk told the Associated Press that Ukrainian troops have now occupied the military airport and are blocking its entrance. The action comes a day after the revelation a Russian fighter jetted buzzed a U.S.S. destroyer multiple times over the Black Sea.

House Democrats are rolling out a new strategy to target 30 House Republicans on immigration reform during the two-week congressional recess, marking a last-ditch effort to force GOP action on a legislative overhaul. The new pressure tactic includes a memo distributed to those 30 districts held by Republicans who have expressed public support for some sort of immigration reform, many of them backing a pathway to citizenship for millions of undocumented immigrants in the United States. Democrats hope the document — which highlights statements made by those Republicans in favor of reform, as well as data showing the district-specific economic

Scott Walker has a 16 point lead (56-40) among likely voters in his race for governor, according to a poll from Wisconsin Public Radio/St. Norbert’s. Among registered voters, his lead is essentially the same (55-40). The survey was conducted between March 24 and April 3. A Marquette University survey conducted between March 20-23 also showed Walker with a nice, though smaller, lead. In that poll, Walker outdistanced Democrat Mary Burke 48-41. Revealingly, Walker fares well in an electorate that does not seem particularly conservative and that, if anything, appears to be slightly to the left of American voters in general.

This is deeply disturbing, and anyone—or any university—who values ethics should be concerned. Why is this? Because he was part of the failed Obama administration?

When Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee Steve Israel (N.Y.) was asked Sunday whether he thinks his Republican colleagues are racist, he responded with a frankness that is rare in politics and even less common when it comes to sensitive issues like race. "Not all of them, no, of course not," Israel said on CNN´s "State of the Union." "But to a significant extent, the Republican base does have elements that are animated by racism. And that´s unfortunate." Israel´s not the only high-ranking Democrat to advance some version of that argument recently. House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) said that Republican reluctance

In 2009, in the earliest weeks of President Barack Obama‘s administration, the White House made the controversial decision to take the unprecedented step of moving the Census Bureau from control of the commerce secretary over to the White House ahead of the decennial 2010 census. Conservatives sounded alarm bells. “It takes something that is supposedly apolitical like the census, and gives it to a guy who is infamously political,” said Rep. Rob Bishop (R-UT) of then White House Chief of Staff Rham Emanuel. “Requiring the Census director to report directly to White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel is a

Just in time for tax deadline day, a new Gallup poll finds that a majority of Americans -- 52 percent -- say they pay too much federal income tax, while 42 percent say they amount they pay is "about right." Three percent said their federal taxes are "too low." Gallup says the percentage who say their taxes are "too high" has hovered around 50 percent since 2003, although the current 52 percent is up from the 46 percent who said "too high" two years ago. While a slim majority of Americans say their federal tax burden is too high, roughly the

The alleged killer of three at the Overland Park (Kansas) Jewish Community Center and a nearby Jewish retirement home didn’t just “appear out of nowhere”; he’s a man who has been in the public eye before, right here in the Kansas City area and elsewhere, along with his foaming-at-the-mouth anti-Jewish and white supremacist views. The suspect, identified as Frazier Glenn Cross of Aurora, Missouri, is also known as Frazier Glenn Miller or simply Glenn Miller. As Glenn Miller, he ran for the U.S. Senate from Missouri in 2010.

President Obama inspired a generation of young people to support his historic election in 2008. And in 2012, despite the struggles of his first term, Mr. Obama still managed to win the support of a full 60% of voters age 18-29. But the man who once dreamed of being a transformative leader in the Reagan mold is inspiring few of those young people to follow his lead.

Although the Civil Rights Act, the landmark legislation which just reached its 50th anniversary, made great strides in desegregating the economy, economic discrimination is still widespread, and anti-discrimination legislation alone can never rectify the economic damage inflicted upon blacks by slavery and our Jim Crow apartheid regime. The Civil Rights Act was a mild reform, all things considered, but one conservatives fought with vigor and one many conservatives are still bitter about to this day. When the Civil Rights Act passed in 1964, the primary purpose was to root out discrimination in public accommodations (like hotels and movie theaters)
