On Wednesday the finger-wagger was out early with a vengeance and seemingly determined to prove that he is the winner of the most disgusting and embarrassing American of the past year. The Secretary of State, with his trademark chronic diarrhea of the mouth and the increasingly unhinged holier than thou attitude appeared on morning network television in all of his elitist Skull and Bones tight-assed glory. The occasion was to once again smear former government contractor turned heroic NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden as a "traitor"and a "coward" and demanding that Washington's most wanted refugee "man up" whatever that means. The gale force windbag from Massachusetts who hit the jackpot by marrying into the Heinz Ketchup Empire doesn't seem to be much of an authority on "manning up" especially considering the dive that he took in Ohio back in 2004 in surrendering the US presidency to another former Skull and Bones elitist George W. Bush despite widespread irregularities.
John Kerry is the embodiment of America itself these days, once a heroic and noble 'war hero' (if you believe his self-serving career of cashing in like his crazed war criminal pal John McCain) who denounced the Vietnam War as the lost cause that it always was, Mr. Kerry has morphed into a powerful figure who is as vile and corrupt, as venal and hypocritical as the very system that he serves. This whole nutty soap opera of Kerry lying, posturing and threatening Russia's President Vladimir Putin, baiting Snowden and standing up for neo-Nazi scum in Ukraine is obviously of a very personal nature. Snowden and Putin dared to show him up in front of his fellow high-rolling globalist snobs of the Davos set and Kerry is hellbent on extracting blood vengeance. Kerry once embodied a youthful idealism and a sense of honor and justice but now is just another poisoned, soulless wealthy cadaver, devoid of even a shred of morality nor the common decency to just resign and spare all of us Americans from the ongoing temper tantrums, demagoguery and huffing and puffing. If there were ever a man who should just go and f*ck off forever it is John F. Kerry. As the great American columnist H.L. Mencken put it "imagine a gentleman and you have just imagined everything that he was not".
The forum for this pompous ass was CBS This Morning and Kerry's remarks are excerpted from the story in The Guardian entitled "Snowden unlikely to 'man up' in face of Espionage Act, legal adviser says":
In a television appearance on Wednesday morning, Kerry said that if Snowden were a "patriot", he would return to the United States from Russia to face criminal charges. Snowden was charged last June with three felonies under the 1917 Espionage Act.
"This is a man who has betrayed his country," Kerry told CBS News. "He should man up and come back to the US."
Kerry's comments came as NBC News prepared to broadcast an extended interview with Snowden on Wednesday night, beginning at 10pm ET. Snowden revealed his identity almost one year ago, on 9 June 2013.
Responding to Kerry's comments on Wednesday, Ben Wizner, a lawyer with the American Civil Liberties Union and a legal adviser to Snowden, said the whistleblower hoped to return to the United States one day, but that he could not do so under the current Espionage Act charges, which make it impossible for him to argue that his disclosures had served the common good.
"The laws under which Snowden is charged don't distinguish between sharing information with the press in the public interest, and selling secrets to a foreign enemy," Wizner said.
"The laws would not provide him any opportunity to say that the information never should have been withheld from the public in the first place. And the fact that the disclosures have led to the highest journalism rewards, have led to historic reforms in the US and around the world -- all of that would be irrelevant in a prosecution under the espionage laws in the United States."
Snowden also could face an untold number of additional charges if he returned to the United States. "He could be charged for each of the documents that has been published," Wizner said. "The exposure that he faces is virtually unlimited under this."
Wizner is correct, it is a rigged game and if Snowden were to be stupid enough to take scum like Kerry at their word when it comes to fair treatment he would be disappeared immediately into one of America's torture gulags or simply just held forever in limbo in some tiny prison cell on a military base. But Snowden is not a stupid man and this seems to be what most of all puts a bug up the tarnished types like Kerry who sold his soul for pennies on the dollar and seems to revel in his new role as a global villain.
The real "traitors" in this country are the "cowards" who hid behind an archaic World War I law in The Espionage Act of 1917 that was created solely to persecute those who were opposed to the lying bastard ("he kept us out of war") and father of the rotten imperialism that came in that damned war's wake - Woodrow Wilson - another messianic meddler of the type that the USA, USA, USA has far too many in our once cherished but more often damnable history. The invocation of the Espionage Act by the lawless Obama regime reveals the grinning death's head behind Barack Obama's Fozzie Bear Fascism and his regime stands for nothing more than the same rotten tyranny as that of George W. Bush. The main difference being that he has been made into a product that provides him with an impenetrable Teflon shield where the gullible sheep are unable to recognize his bullshit for what it is: the same type of imperialism as Wilson, Bush or any of the other war criminals who have held the exalted office of US President.
So Snowden was to give his ballyhooed interview to be aired Wednesday night to NBC's lickspittle celebrity talking head Brian Williams. I suppose that having to at some point turn himself over to the opinion molders in the electronic court of bought off jackasses like Williams was inevitable just to get any public exposure outside of the cloak of lies of that the state has draped him in. As of Wednesday afternoon, the drive-by attacks were already underway despite that there were hours from the interview actually being aired.
During his sit down with the employee of the mammoth defense contractor GE, Snowden made the statement that he was "trained as a spy" or in the context from NBC News:
"I was trained as a spy in sort of the traditional sense of the word, in that I lived and worked undercover overseas -- pretending to work in a job that I'm not -- and even being assigned a name that was not mine"
