NSA Head Caught In Open Mic Moment: 'Tell Your Boss I Owe Him Another Friggin' Beer'

Yesterday's NSA hearing in Congress was a bit of a national security lovefest, just based on the hearing's title alone: "How Disclosed NSA Programs Protect Americans, and Why Disclosure Aids Our Adversaries." Hardly a forum for fair discussion. So the hearing was a bit of a cakewalk for NSA head General Keith Alexander and FBI deputy director Sean Joyce. Following their testimony, Alexander was caught in an open mic moment telling Joyce, "Tell your boss I owe him another friggin' beer."

The exchange was flagged by Ben Doernberg and picked up by The Atlantic Wire. And for people concerned about the broad surveillance of NSA snooping, the image of the heads of the NSA and FBI sitting by the fire, enjoying a cold one and grumbling about the program going public, won't exactly put anyone at ease.

Here's the full transcript of the open mic moment, from The Atlantic Wire:

Alexander: Thank you, Sean.
Joyce: Good to see you.
Alexander: Tell your boss ... tell your boss I owe him another friggin' beer.
Joyce: Him?
Alexander: Yeah.
Joyce: Tell him to give it to me.
Alexander: (laughs) You want him to give it to you?
Joyce: Alright?

David Icke Interview on Satanism and Demonic Possession - June 2013

Dan Dicks interviews David Icke on Satanism and Demonic Possession
Dan Dicks sits down with David Icke to discuss spiritual possession by entities that seek to manipulate and influence humanity through an unwitting host who may or may not be aware of how they are being deceitfully used to spread false information with the ultimate goal of controlling and destroying humanity.

David Icke is one of the most visible outspoken and controversial speakers and writers about the Illuminati and the New World Order control agenda
Some David Icke Quotes :
A gift of truth is the gift of love.
David Icke

And why do we, who say we oppose tyranny and demand freedom of speech, allow people to go to prison and be vilified, and magazines to be closed down on the spot, for suggesting another version of history.
David Icke

Have you ever wondered what your subconscious mind looks like? Well today, I can show you.
David Icke

I am a channel for the Christ spirit. The title was given to me very recently by the Godhead.
David Icke

I believe that the human race has developed a form of collective schizophrenia in which we are not only the slaves to this imposed thought behavior, but we are also the police force of it.
David Icke

I couldn't walk down any street in Britain without being laughed at. It was a nightmare. My children were devastated because their dad was a figure of ridicule.
David Icke

I know that you are part of me and I am part of you because we are all aspects of the same infinite consciousness that we call God and Creation.
David Icke

In the Atlantean period there were many energies being used and information and knowledge being used which were, for particular reasons of safety, withdrawn, shall we say, to prevent complete catastrophe, to prevent total destruction of your planet.
David Icke

Infinite love is the only truth. Everything else is illusion.
David Icke

One of my very greatest fears as a child was being ridiculed in public. And there it was coming true. As a television presenter, I'd been respected. People come up to you in the street and shake your hand and talk to you in a respectful way.
David Icke

So reports of my madness, as they say, were greatly exaggerated. Not that I give a bugger either way.
David Icke

The best way of removing negativity is to laugh and be joyous.
David Icke

The Earth needs rebels!
David Icke

The reason most people don't express their individuality and actually deny it, is not fear of what prime ministers think of us or the head of the federal reserve, It's what their families and their friends down at the bar are going to think of them.
David Icke

Today's mighty oak is just yesterday's nut, that held its ground.
David Icke

Governments False Flags ~ Mike Rivero : What Really Happened Radio Show Jun 19 2013

What Really Happened Radio Show: Michael Rivero Wednesday, Jun 19 2013: (Commercial Free Video)

Date: 06/19/2013
Michael Rivero is the webmaster of and host of the What Really Happened radio shows on the Republic Broadcasting Network. Formerly with NASA, Michael transitioned his image processing skills (along with a brief stint as an actor) into the then-new motion picture computer animation field and has worked on films such as "Star Trek", "The Day After Tomorrow", and has supervised visual effects on "Brainscan," "LOST", and "Hawaii Five-0." Michael has taken a sabbatical from film work to focus all his efforts on peace activism. Michaels foray into blogging began before the word was even invented, and happened almost by accident when he spotted a suspicious photograph being broadcast on ABC news in 1994 related to the death of White House deputy Council Vincent Foster. Since that sudden beginning, Michaels website has expanded to cover diverse topics including the JFK assassination, the accidental shoot-down of TWA 800, election fraud, health issues, Saddams non-existent nuclear weapons, 9-11, the economy, and of course, the lies used to trick the United States into wars of conquest on Afghanistan, Iraq, and now Iran. Michael resides in Hawaii with his wife Claire, who is a composer and creates much of theme music used on the What Really Happened radio show.

Amputee Actor Caught Getting Into Position Boston Hoax

I'm sure the pain would be too excruciating and horrible ESPECIALLY right after his legs were BLOWN OFF by a BOMB... Let alone retraining how to sit up after you are relatively healed.Not to mention he was laying down in the other videos for a solid 2 minutes before anyone, ANYONE, even tended to him. They were tending to other people, you know, WITH LEGS and only a few scratches. Never mind the guy with his legs blown off... let's clean that scratch before it gets infected.

How to Stay ANONYMOUS & Get OFF THE GRID - STOP the U.S. Government from TRACKING your LIFE

How to Stay ANONYMOUS & Get OFF THE GRID - STOP the U.S. Government from TRACKING your LIFE

How to Evade Government Surveillance and Stay Anonymous Online

Why stay anonymous online? In today's society there are people and automated devices that are recording your deepest, most private thoughts and activities. Each day we voluntarily divulge the most intimate details of our lives through social networking accounts, email, banking apps, online games and more. In addition, governments and corporations can censor and block our traffic based on whatever standards are in place that day.

Government agencies, hackers and sophisticated bot networks are capturing every piece of digital data that we transmit through all of our Internet-connected gadgets. Smartphones, Smart TVs, computers, tablets, and so much more...they are all vulnerable, nothing is safe these days. Even your old clam-shell phone isn't safe. This is because many phone providers route your calls over media using the Internet Protocol at some point within their network. For example, long distance providers transfer calls over VoIP all the time.

Whether you're browsing the Web, signing up for a new online game, or simply checking your email, you are constantly leaving tracks and giving away information to anyone with access and the knowledge to analyze the traffic. Once the data is compiled the attacker can build an incredibly accurate profile of not only your online life but your real-world life as well.

So, the big question is, how can you stay anonymous online? Free from government censorship and potential eavesdropping from some hacker or three-letter government agency that wants to invade your privacy while you use your computer. In comes Whonix, the Anonymous Operating System!

Use Whonix, The Anonymous Operating System, Stay Anonymous Online

Whonix is a free, general purpose computer operating system based on Virtual Box, Linux and Tor. The purpose of Whonix is to allow Internet users the ability to stay anonymous online. This is most beneficial to users in regimes that censor and monitor access to the Internet, but it can also be used by anyone who values their privacy, or doesn't want their activities tracked online.

By design, IP address leaks are meant to be impossible while using Whonix. The developers claim even malware with admin privileges can't find the Whonix Workstation's real IP address or location. This is because Whonix consists of two (virtual) computers. One machine acts as a gateway or router and runs only Tor, a sophisticated anonymity software. This machine is called the Whonix-Gateway. The other machine, which called the Whonix-Workstation, is on a completely isolated network that only allows Internet connections to be routed through the Whonix-Gateway.
Apple, Facebook and Google were among nine tech firms named as having participated (wittingly or unwittingly) in the controversial NSA PRISM we surveillance programme. The 41-page presentation was given in April this year and made public by the Washington Post.

The Apple statement, although it reveals the number of requests Cupertino complied with, it continues to deny allowing gov bods to access its servers, stating: "We first heard of the government's 'Prism' program when news organizations asked us about it on June 6."

Since the exposure of the programme through the actions of former CIA contractor Edward Snowden, US tech firms have been lobbying the government to allow them to provide more details to their customers on the extent to which they have helped the authorities with their inquiries. Spy chiefs were against this disclosure but politicians appear to have overruled them and allowed tech giants to provide more details on wiretap requests than had been permitted with previous transparency reports from the likes of Google and Microsoft.

This move is clearly designed, at least in part, to reassure businesses and consumers that data held by US technology firms is not subject to dragnet surveillance, a concern that might prompt enterprises and international consumers to look for alternatives to US-based services.

Transformation By Drowning In Despair – By Jason Liosatos

Our system which is drowning us is awakening us.

The transformation in people taking place now reminds me of the initiation process that St John used to do to people as his form of radical baptism. Apparently instead of the later sprinkling of water on the forehead, he would get someone in the water and hold their head under the water until they were thrashing around fighting for their lives, and only just before they passed out would he pull them out.

Once they had reached that point of near death by suffocation did they transcend and shed all their old skin, all their worries, fears, petty concerns, the clutter in their minds, even their own names, religions, race and general identity, and so had that feeling of rebirth and freedom from the old self with all its attachments. If someone is not sure who they are any more that’s good, it means you may be transcending the old labels and shackles and coming closer to getting to know the real you who has no labels but just is.

Apparently at or near real death this happens to a lot of people, and the peace and transcendent liberation they have found is written on their faces. Many people who have faced death by accidents or disease often discover their true essence again when everything is stripped away, especially if they also transcend their fear, and rediscover their freedom, happiness and peace that most people yearn for and never discover their whole lives.

I can sense that people all over the world are being so manipulated, and strangled by the system of debts and slavery, that a similar thing is taking place. The beautiful connection to peace, harmony, love and happiness inherent in each person has become so weakened and cut off by the strangulation our system has inflicted on us that they are in a similar process to the radical near drowning I just described.

Our heads are being held under the water by mass manipulation in a system which is now choking us to the point of unconsciousness, and ironically it is this very thing which is triggering our transformation and awakening us. It is amazing that the very thing that is killing us is awakening us and alerting us to the terrible danger we are facing. It is as though a pillow of suppression, slavery and debt is being pushed harder and harder against humanity’s face, and the harder it is pushed, the more people struggle for survival. Bruce Lipton, a biologist said in my interview with him said that cells and living organisms don’t die easily, they fight to the death for their survival, and are programmed to do so, they never give up….and so it is with humans now as the shackles of debt and control get tighter.

Like a caterpillar now becoming a butterfly thrashing around in its old caterpillar cocoon to get out and fly, so are we awakening by our heads being held under the water, not by the loving hands of St John but by the strangling hands of the oligarchs who have been drowning us for years and years. – Jason Liosatos –

Mass Protests Sweep Brazil in Uproar over Public Services Cuts & High Costs of World Cup, Olympics

Brazil is witnessing some of its largest protests in decades, after some 240,000 people protested Monday. Tens of thousands continue to take the streets. The demonstrations were initially sparked by an increase in bus fares in São Paulo, but the uprising soon spiraled nationwide amid outrage over government corruption, inequality, failing public services and police brutality against demonstrators. Protesters have also condemned the high level of government spending on the 2014 World Cup and the 2016 Summer Olympics. We're joined from São Paulo by Lucia Nader, executive director of the Brazil-based human rights organization Conectas and a participant in the protests.

Exopolitics & Contact - Coast to Coast Am - June 18 2013

Exopolitics & Contact - June 18 2013 - Coast to Coast Am - C2CAM Date: 06-18-13 George Noory interviews Michael E. Salla and Earnest Cobb.

About the show:

Pioneer in the development of 'Exopolitics,' Michael Salla discussed evidence of contact that is surfacing through major international agencies such as the Vatican, as well as the issue of diplomacy with ETs. In terms of negotiations with extraterrestrials who have been visiting our world for decades, he advocated a style of conflict resolution called Track II diplomacy, in which non-officials such as activists, scholars, and private citizens engage in dialogue, and propose solutions. Though ETs and various governments have reached agreements in the past, this has led to problematic cover-ups and abductions, and the general public has been left out of the secretive negotiating process, Salla noted.

He believes that some 19 different ET civilizations have been intervening on Earth, many of whom are more human-appearing than the "Greys" that are often associated with the idea of aliens. Some of these groups have tried to bypass the governmental talks and reach out directly to people, and their efforts date all the way back to the contactee era of the 1950s, Salla suggested. For example, the 'Friendship' case in Italy encompassed a 22-year period (1956-1978) in which human-looking ETs, who were living in an underground base, had ongoing liaisons and discussions with over 100 people, and shared their galactic knowledge with them. One of the lead contactees, Bruno Sammaciccia, led efforts to help the ETs by providing them with supplies and food, Salla recounted.

Another intriguing case involved a Colombian named Enrique Castillo Rincon who was said to meet with a Jesus-like ET in the Andes, along with about 20 other contactees. The Vatican has been moving toward an acceptance of ETs, and may be preparing to announce their presence, Salla reported, adding that the Catholic Church could benefit and become more popular by embracing a kind of expansive spirituality that includes ETs in a kind of brotherhood. Salla also announced his new project ExoNews, in which he presents concise video reports on YouTube (watch a sample episode here).
Slot Machine Guru

First hour guest, Earnest Cobb, who has won over $10.3 million in slot machine jackpots since 2005, talked about luck and gaming. Known as the 'Slot Guru,' he said he focuses on winning so that he can give money away to elderly casino patrons and others. "I'm really addicted not to gaming, but to giving," he remarked. Cobb detailed how he plays 6 or 7 slot machines at the same time, and chooses ones that have the largest payouts. "When you go to the casino, the quickest way for you to lose is to think you're going to lose. You've got to be able to train your mind to alleviate that," he advised.

US pushes smear campaign against Snowden to distract from NSA leak

Cyberwar, NSA Spying, and US-China Relations: James Corbett on RT

Edward Snowden's revelations had already led to some tension between the US and China. Beijing has demanded that Washington explain its surveillance program and cyber spying to the international community. James Corbett, editor of an independent news website the Corbett Report, says further damage to relations between the two countries is inevitable.

Juan Williams Clashes w/ Fox Contributor Over 'Obamaphone' Program Fraud - Hannity Show - 6/18/13

(June 18, 2013) - Tonight Sean Hannity revisited last year's conservative outrage over a federal phone program thanks to a new video by undercover filmmaker James O'Keefe showing people distributing the phones even with the understanding that the people getting the phones might sell them to buy drugs or shoes. Juan Williams and Deneen Borelli got into a heated back-and-forth over the effectiveness of the program and whether it's a clear example of massive welfare fraud under the Obama administration.

Borelli found it outrageous that people can just take government entitlements and "sell them for whatever they want to sell them for," citing it as an example of the kind of "waste, fraud, and abuse going on because of bloated government." Williams shot back that at the idea that this is taxpayer money going to waste, saying it's a universal service fee charge and it goes to poor people who use the phones to contact prospective employers.

Borelli noted that it's millions of people who get these phones, to which Williams remarked, "I'm sorry we have that many poor people." Williams also dismissed the "Obamaphone" moniker, pointing out that it started under George W. Bush. He said it's a good program with "fraud that has to be addressed," but Borelli insisted it's a wasteful program trying to provide people with "all of their wants and needs," saying that she knows people with home phones who have also gotten the cell phones.

Williams and Borelli continued to clash over whether the program is a tax or a fee, with Williams singling out a congressman calling this "corporate welfare." Hannity insisted that the program allows too many people to "take advantage of taxpayers' money" to buy drugs and Louis Vuitton handbags. Borelli suggested giving out the phones during an election year couldn't be a coincidence, but Williams continued to bring up the Republican origins of the program.

The segment ended with Williams and Borelli going back and forth over whether the cell phones are necessary for poor people to get jobs. Borelli concluded, "Look at the facts, Juan, we're talking about the facts."
