‘Snowden’ movie – worse spying than you think

I am not one to watch or enjoy movies normally, I find them a plebeian activity that rarely has original enough plots to hold my attention, with that qualifier out of the way the movie ‘Snowden’ about government spying is well worth the watch.

It details the recent life of Edward Snowden who worked for the CIA, NSA and other organizations.  It mostly just lays out how bad they spy on you.  Such as turning on laptops cameras (which old jew zuckerberg got caught taping his little camera over so seems legit).  One of the other ones is where they were essentially looking for trouble, and randomly talking to bankers, found one, traced all his contacts and found his daughter lusting after some other highschooler.  She almost kills herself and they prey on the banker taking him out drinking, getting him loaded then letting him drink/drive AND calling the police on him.  All with the intent of bribing him for some sort of info.

They essentially have access to everything.  Part of the problem is they have TOO much.  So words like ‘bomb’ ‘gun’ ‘bush’ etc show up (like this post likely will) but given I am not doing anything wrong, it will be a false hit.  Of course whenever someone goes crazy they look back over all there stuff and with 20/20 hindsight its like ‘yep he sure was a radical’.

Anyway check the movie, it is pretty good.

  1. The West is a total police state right now.

    Anything to do with electricity is easily trackable. It would have been so much easier to change things before 1985, but it was not to be.

    Of course, the human aspect is lacking. Osama escaped the biggest manhunt in history for about 10 years by going low tech.

    They must have some heavy black mail on the Hollywood and DC types. I’d bet the NSA and CIA are damn near untouchable, with the amount of juice they have.
