It’s an insult to real whistleblowers to use the term with the Ukrainegate protagonist

Start with the initial headline, in the story the Washington Post “broke” on September 18th:


The unnamed person at the center of this story sure didn’t sound like a whistleblower. Our intelligence community wouldn’t wipe its ass with a real whistleblower.

Americans who’ve blown the whistle over serious offenses by the federal government either spend the rest of their lives overseas, like Edward Snowden, end up in jail, like Chelsea Manning, get arrested and ruined financially, like former NSA official Thomas Drake, have their homes raided by FBI like disabled NSA vet William Binney, or get charged with espionage like ex-CIA exposer-of-torture John Kiriakou. It’s an insult to all of these people, and the suffering they’ve weathered, to frame the ballcarrier in the Beltway’s latest partisan power contest as a whistleblower.

  1. I always wonder why they go hunting TheDonald without a round in the chamber. After decades in NY real estate development… he was literally bumping into the mob no matter where he went. Whether it’s concrete, the unions or even trash hauling. There are things they could go after Trump for that are real, why do they just keep barking at the Moon? It reminds me of Bubba’s reign as supreme douche. They go after him on Monica, while ignoring bar-ba-que-ing the Branch Davidians at Waco. Why not go after something real? It’s the definition of limited hang out… like when a serial killer pleads guilty to shop lifting and no one thinks to dig in his backyard. While this bogus witch hunt is happening, the country is literally burning to the ground. California’s PG&E preemptively cut power to God knows how many people due to bogus wildfire danger. Meanwhile more gun confiscation laws were passed and SMART fire Weapon was again deployed with the tell tale signature of cars melted next to untouched trees and structures dust-i-fied next to untouched forest. Did anyone watch the Hunger Games? Remember the fires that came from nowhere? They appeared to have a programable AI intelligence about them. Hollywood warns us about every bad thing coming our way in movies. Remember Geo-storm? A laser came down and cut a swath through Florida. Ice chunks fell from the sky like boulders. These warnings come in allegory form… they are “Hollywooded” up which means they are hyper-dramatized to deliver maximum entertainment value. The softball size hail was wide spread over Earth this year in places not known for it, as were simultaneous floods on all inhabited continents and wildfires also in places not known for them. They warned us what was coming with the Hunger Games, Minority Report, Geo-Storm, Enemy of the State, the Matrix, Capricorn One and the list goes on and on. Has anyone seen the compilations of all the clocks and digital readouts in the background of movies that read 9-11. I just noticed another one the other day. 9-11 is foreshadowed in so many movies it will make your head spin.

  2. I agree with the article about the “whistleblower”(see and with the observations of Dave Kraft (See “Who Is Donald Trump? On the Monica misdirection by Starr, he was most obviously leading people away from the Vince Foster murder. (See Take your pick of my articles.)
