2013 has been a year of vindication for the Zenberg Blogue and everyone else who has raised a voice of concern regarding unconstitutional and questionable activities of US government officials.
It seems the mainstream media was unable to ignore many of the glaring disclosures of 2013 and has reluctantly brought some of these issues to the forefront of American and world consciousness.
1 The Edward Snowden story
Probably the most important and underrated story of the year if not the century. Thanks to the heroic act of the NSA whistle blower, anyone who is paying attention now knows that the NSA has repeatedly lied to Americans and the world about its unconstitutional surveillance program. In short, Mr. Snowden revealed that the NSA has been storing every telephone conversation, every text and every email of every American and world citizen. And since Snowden's expose' revealed only about 1% of NSA's unconstitutional activities, let's hope that we'll be hearing more from this truth-telling traitor* in the near future.
2 Drone assassinations of Americans
It took a long time for the Obama Administration to say that assassination drones wouldn't be used to target American citizens within the borders of the United States. On the other hand, President Obama has demonstrated that he's not afraid to kill Americans or anyone else with drones outside the US, and so far, has murdered thousands of innocent women and children in the program that has been criticized as having only 1% effectiveness at killing the target. It is estimated that fifty innocent people die every time Obama attempts to assassinate someone with a drone.
3 IRS targets groups critical of Obama
The press made it appear as though only Tea Party and other unsavory conservative groups were targeted by the IRS when in reality, so were groups associated with the Occupy Movement and others opposed to Obama's wars and domestic abuses. Free speech comes with a price when it's critical of the President's naughtiness.
It should be obvious to anyone who is paying attention that government officials have repeatedly lied to us in their pursuit of agendas that are not intended to be in the best interest of the citizenry.
*We know who the REAL traitors are.
