The criminal US government is trying to confiscate some of Edward Snowden’s income from his latest book “Permanent Record.” You would think they would have something better to do, like for example, investigating who gave stand-down orders to the US Air Force on 9/11, and exactly how the WTC buildings were brought down by controlled demolitions. The CIA, FBI and Mossad might know more about that. Anyway, here’s from Ars Technica, “Feds seek to seize all profits from Snowden’s book over NDA violation” (September 17th 2019):
The US Department of Justice may never be able to prosecute Edward Snowden for his procurement and distribution of highly classified information from the network of the National Security Agency. But DOJ lawyers have found a way to reach out and touch his income—and that of Macmillan Publishers—by filing a civil suit today against them for publication of his book, Permanent Record.
The lawsuit, filed in the US Court for the District of Eastern Virginia, does not seek to stop publication or distribution of Permanent Record. Instead, as a DOJ spokesperson said in a press release, “under well-established Supreme Court precedent [in the case] Snepp v. United States, the government seeks to recover all proceeds earned by Snowden because of his failure to submit his publication for pre-publication review in violation of his alleged contractual and fiduciary obligations.”
“Highly classified information.” Yeah, right. Everyone with at least 2 working braincells already knew what they were up to (including me from at least 2006); the only thing Snowden did was release documents to convince the sheeple of what was going on. And even that evidence was not enough for some of the sheeple who appear to love being slaves and abused by their criminal government.
After everything that’s known, I keep wondering what keeps people working for criminal government institutions like the CIA and NSA. You’d have to be either a psychopath or fucking stupid to knowingly and willingly keep working for those criminals. I’d be ashamed of myself.
I’m looking forward to reading Snowden’s book as soon as I can find a copy without Digital Restrictions Management (DRM) (or DRM that I can easily get rid of). I like to be able to keep my fucking books, make copies and backups, and not have them disappear when Microsoft or Amazon feel like it.
