Podcast Notes Key Takeaways

  • A National Security Agency (NSA) surveillance program has been ruled unlawful, seven years after it was exposed by whistleblower Edward Snowden
    • “What they had ruled was that the NSA’s bulk collection of American’s phone records was illegal” – Edward Snowden
  • “This is a huge victory for privacy rights”
  • Seven years after Snowden released that information, there are been 0 cases showing Snowden harmed or put national security at risk:
    • “The government has never shown a single example of any harm that has come as a result of the publication of these documents back in 2013”Edward Snowden
  • It’s relatively easy to install spyware, such as Pegasus, into someone’s phone and get access to their text messages, calls, passwords, camera, and microphone
    • “The number one target is the iPhone” – Edward Snowden
      • Why? The rich, political leaders, business CEOs, and other important figures tend to all have an iPhone
  • Unfortunately, there’s no real punishment if the government breaks a law:
    • “There is no punishment…There is no criminal liability for all the bastards at the head of the FBI, the head of the NSA, who were violating American’s rights for decades.”Edward Snowden
      • The heads of those organizations don’t go to prison or even lose their jobs. Some government officials even lied under oath and still weren’t held responsible for their actions.
        • “Because of that, it creates a culture of unaccountability”
  • “I think you’re a hero and I think that what you’ve done, history will be kind to you…I think our government is on the wrong side of history”Joe Rogan
  • The US needs to end the war against whistleblowers that don’t actually reveal any government secrets, but rather simply share the faults of the government to the American people who they serve:
    • “There are times when the only thing you can do is tell the truth and that should not be a crime”Edward Snowden

Edward Snowden, the Surveillance State, and the 'Dark Mirror' Still Watching Us All

Play
Read more

In 2013, Barton Gellman of The Washington Post started publishing stories about what he called the "surveillance-industrial state" based on documents given to him by former National Security Agency (NSA) contractor Edward Snowden. Along with work done by filmmaker Laura Poitras and journalist Glenn Greenwald, Gellman's exposés laid bare an extensive and previously unacknowledged network by which the federal government systematically and illegally spied on American citizens and routinely circumvented checks on its power.

Gellman has just published Dark Mirror: Edward Snowden and the American Surveillance State, which tells the story of his interactions with the whistleblower, bureaucrats, politicians, and the media as he helped reveal one of the biggest secrets in U.S. history. Nick Gillespie spoke with him about his new book and earlier, Pulitzer Prize-winning work that revealed how Donald Rumsfeld, Dick Cheney, and others in the Bush administration exceeded constitutional limits in the name of prosecuting the war on terror.

They also discuss national surveillance in light of the two major-party presidential candidates, Donald Trump and Joe Biden. Former heads of intelligence services are "much less sanguine about the government accumulating this enormous machinery of surveillance" with Trump in the White House because they openly acknowledge "it is subject to horrific potential abuse," says Gellman. At the same time, he stresses that Biden, who served in the Senate for decades and eight years as vice president under President Barack Obama, "has not been an apostle of transparency in the national security world. He was a strong backer of the prosecution of whistleblowers and leakers in the Obama administration and there were more prosecutions with charges of espionage against people who talked to journalists during the Obama administration than in all previous administrations combined, which had a chilling effect on national security reporting."

Episode 230: The Healer



Michael welcomes Jerry Wills to the program. Jerry is a well-known international speaker, radio, and internet TV broadcaster. Devoting his life to helping others through his unusual gifts, Jerry Wills is an intuitive healer who investigates the science and history of healing techniques ignored by the modern world for centuries.

From a young age, Jerry Wills understood the movement of energy through all things. However, after many scoldings, he learned to keep his unique gifts to himself. That is until 1981 when a near-death experience gave him a second chance to stop wasting his life and share his talents.

It took another 20 years for his abilities to be accepted. Now, people seek him out from across the world for classes, lectures and help in the art of healing. His greatest reward comes from seeing the faces of people he’s helped and their families once they realize their problems have vanished, and they’ve been healed. Jerry goes into depth about his trials and tribulations.

Jerry Wills had his first contact with extraterrestrials in 1965, when he was twelve years old. At that time, he would stay outside, night after night, watching star-like objects darting at right angles high in the sky over his house. A few months later, he had a close – up sighting of a typical flying saucer – a hovering metallic ship with blinking colored lights.
