Whistleblowers: The Bad and the Okay
Some whistleblowers more acceptable than some others.
Democracy Now is not always my cup of tea, since it's gung-ho on "climate change", but I do commend it for its ongoing support of the Palestinian fight for freedom, and of whistle blowers Assange, Manning and Snowden.
From Democracy Now: Snowden Knows Exactly Why No One Wants to Be a Whistleblower
Another burning question: How is it that it's so difficult to impeach Trump?
Time tried to answer that question in early 2017:
The Constitution states that a president can be impeached if convicted of “treason, bribery or other high crimes and misdemeanors.” Those looking to impeach Trump would need to show he has done something that falls into one of those categories.
Extramarital romps are merely food for gossip, and even Trump's Christian followers forgave him his personal weaknesses, saying that he was merely "a flawed, imperfect tool of God".
There are some things that conservative Christians simply have to overlook if they want a conservative leader. Trump is a huge supporter of the "Holy Land", the place to which Jesus has long been scheduled to return. Trump's religiosity in Israel's direction has trumped his sleazy personal predilections.
The Dems failed to defeat the Repug power with mere sleaze against Trump. But now that the US has another election on the horizon, they are more determined than ever to find something that will stick and they don't mind doing it with the help of OMIGAWD a whistleblower.
But, would you believe the privacy of said blower is being protected by the director of national intelligence? When it comes to acceptance of whistleblowing, it very much depends on who does the blowing about whom and when.
CBS: Pelosi launches formal Trump impeachment inquiry
How did Pelosi know about this? Well ...
And why was the matter not dealt with? Because ...
Now, as if to prove its own descent into lunacy, the US is suing for the proceeds from Edward Snowden's recently published book "Permanent Record" -- making no rational sense whatsoever, since the US "Justice" Department would then be profiting from what they have heretofore denounced as criminal activities.
Gee, I wish I could direct you to Off-Guardian's review of Snowden's book, but apparently they are "under attack". Meanwhile, Canadian bookstores (and no doubt Amazon and other online book sellers) will have no problem profiting from the sale of the book, and I've just bought a copy locally, though I think I will watch the following Democracy Now 6-part interview series with Snowden wherein he discusses the lawsuit.
