Report: Russia Wants to “Curry Favor” With Trump by Handing Over Edward Snowden (To Be Executed)

Ed’s Russian friends may not really be his friends after all
Politics • Views: 39,684

The news just keeps getting wackier. Now we have reports that Russia may try to “curry favor” with the Trump regime by turning over Edward Snowden.

And remember: Donald Trump has called Edward Snowden a “traitor” who should be executed.

I wonder if Ed now regrets tweeting “2016: a choice between Donald Trump and Goldman Sachs?” (A tweet he has deleted, by the way.)

That’s according to a senior U.S. official who has analyzed a series of highly sensitive intelligence reports detailing Russian deliberations and who says a Snowden handover is one of various ploys to “curry favor” with Trump. A second source in the intelligence community confirms the intelligence about the Russian conversations and notes it has been gathered since the inauguration.

Snowden’s ACLU lawyer, Ben Wizner, told NBC News they are unaware of any plans that would send him back to the United States.

Team Snowden has received no such signals and has no new reason for concern,” Wizner said.

I sort of doubt that Vladimir Putin’s going to give Snowden’s lawyer a heads-up on this one.

If true, seems like this gives Trump a PR win and a public excuse for pro-Russian moves. And the Russians don’t care about Snowden, this is no loss for them.

I wonder how many Snowden fans regret voting for Jill Stein now? Lots of overlap on that Venn diagram.

Sean Spicer claimed Mr. Trump does not own a bathrobe, after a report came out alleging he wanders around the White House without one.

That was followed up by several photographs of Mr. Trump in previous years wearing a bathrobe.

You volunteered to get worked on by two of the better humint/sigint agencies in the world…one of them for years on end.

Because you are not as smart as dozens, maybe hundreds, of professional intelligence operatives all working to trick or treat you into compliance.

Snowden is also using confusing terminology. Spy trades between countries A and B are where A returns captured B agents to B in return for B returning captured A agents to A.

This fact pattern does not apply to Snowden, since he is definitely not a US agent and seems likely to be a Russian asset. However, if he has outlived his usefulness to Mother Russia, Putin will turn him over to Trump.

I don’t believe that analogy make any sense.
The US and Soviet Union/Russia have traded the others captured spies to get theirs back. They generally don’t give up their own spies to the other side.

My guess is Snowden is toast.

He’s an IT guy, not military or espionage; he doesn’t understand how this works. Pesky libertarian streak in him will likely get him executed.

While libertarians insist “information wants to be free,” governments don’t really think that. Moreover, since Snowden downloaded info from the NSA, his info might have included information on Russia itself (noteworthy here: none of his data dump included information about Russia, which makes me wonder if he was a Russian asset from the get-go).

Not only that, but Snowden’s only use to Russia as a spy was the contents of his computer, which they no doubt had long ago. Since then, his only use is as a propaganda tool, and how useful a tool is depends on how you use it. Want to embarrass Obama? Let Snowden post Tweets, give interviews, etc. Want to burnish your puppet’s NatSec cred? Send him Snowden to punish.

Local race alert…..

There’s a very important special election in Delaware on February 25th to Bethany Hall-Long who vacated a State Senate seat when she was elected as the Lt. Governor. She’s a Democrat and without her the state senate is now split 10-10 so this decides the majority.

The district is in an area that was once mostly farmland but is now a new bedroom community of thousands of new homes, so the residents are mostly middle class blue collar and office workers.

Unfortunately, special elections are not kind to Democratic candidates. Also this is being complicated by a spoiler candidate (of course) — a libertarian who is running on a legalize marijuana platform where both R and D are against it. So I know of a lot of young people who normally would vote D who are going to vote for the Libertarian. (they never learn).

Judging by the comment section on the local Gannett news article on this — I’m very nervous.

It doesn’t seem to bother all these right wing patriots that their guy got the White House in no small part because of Russian activities.

It doesn’t seem to bother, let alone matter, to these self-styled patriots (who have no issue flying the flag of insurrection, but I digress) that their guy has in his employ all these people with ties to Russia, along with the guy who was caught on tape coordinating with the Russians and lying about it.

There’s a growing mountain of evidence about Flynn, which not only implicates him in major violations of federal law, but reinforces the fact that he was a bad apple for a long time (he was booted by Obama after all). That the WH isn’t taking action on this shows that they don’t care, or are oblivious to the true scope of what’s going on here.

The more denials and lies, the worse it gets for everyone, and that too includes Pence, who repeated lies to support Flynn.

Noticed the last few days only 20 tweets are viewable at a time on any one person’s account and new tweets don’t autoload…I have to reload the page.

Also, Snowden doesn’t need to be a spy for Russia to leverage him in a negotiation with the US.

Spy trades are explicit transactions. Handing over a criminal for [unstated goodwill], an implicit transaction, can also happen.

His primary rules were: never allow the public to cool off; never admit a fault or wrong; never concede that there may be some good in your enemy; never leave room for alternatives; never accept blame; concentrate on one enemy at a time and blame him for everything that goes wrong; people will believe a big lie sooner than a little one; and if you repeat it frequently enough people will sooner or later believe it.

So, there was a kerfuffle at MSG the other night involving former Knick great Charles Oakley. He was tossed from the arena after getting into a shoving match with several people. Dolan, who owns the team, has banned Oakley from the Garden. A security guy was also fired; Oakley also faces 3 charges of assault.

That doesn’t sit well with Knick fans, who know the wrong guy has been banned from the Garden. They would much rather that the Dolans be tossed than one of the guys who nearly got the Knicks a title way back when (when the Knicks were actually watchable).

A little Charles Pierce and another state to never set foot in.

Missouri became a right to work state this week, which means that the workers there are now enjoying the freedom that comes with absolute powerlessness. So, naturally, it was time for that state’s legislature to get around to the state’s consumers next. From STLToday:

Swearingen sued under the Missouri Merchandising Practices Act, a half-century-old law that prohibits deceptive and unfair practices in business. That law now faces a likely defanging at the hands of the Missouri Legislature. A Senate committee approved a bill with big changes, and it is now awaiting a vote of the Senate. “It’s looking like it’s going to sail right through,” said Cara Spencer, executive director of the Consumers Council of Missouri and a St. Louis alderman. The bill is sponsored by Sen. Ron Richard, R-Joplin, the speaker pro tem of the Senate. The change would exempt auto dealers, payday and title lenders, finance companies, cable and phone companies and a host of other businesses from being sued for violating the act.

Because those are almost precisely the businesses least likely to engage in shady or otherwise hinky dealings with their customers—especially those payday lenders, who are God’s representatives to the finance industry.

“Thank you for asking. Popular vote loser Trump is a witless fucking cocksplat who makes me ashamed to be a US citizen. I can go on like this all day, so do you arrest me now or later?”

I would take the approach of the guy who had the local law enforcement folks asking him at a checkpoint if he was a U.S. citizen. “Are you border patrol? Are you a federal agent? no? Then fuck off.”

They have a lengthy response.

From that response:

However, the above-displayed award has some curious aspects to it. For instance, we found no record of anyone else’s having received an “NAACP Governmental Award of Excellence,” nor were we able to locate any reports (from 2009 or otherwise) regarding the NAACP’s honoring Sessions with such an award.

When we reached out to the NAACP for more information about the award, a staffer confirmed to us that the national NAACP office does not give out an award by that name as part of their regular honors.

Mobile County NAACP Leader: Sessions Award Bogus

Note the picture of the plaque only surfaced Wednesday (on Town Hall, a noted font of news excellence)

Lizzetta McConnell, who took over as president of the branch in January, spoke on Friday afternoon in response to the emergence of the plaque on Wednesday, the same day the U.S. Senate confirmed Sessions as the country’s attorney general. The plaque reportedly was found by an aide who was cleaning out Sessions’ Mobile office. The inscription it reads: “NAACP Civic And Human Rights Convention / April 23rd-26th, 2009, Mobile / Alabama NAACP Governmental Award of Excellence / Senator Jeff Sessions / For The Outstanding Work You Do.”

A formal statement issued by the state-level NAACP said that the “Alabama State Conference of the NAACP has learned of a plaque that is in Senator Sessions possession that indicated it was given to him by the NAACP for Governmental Award of Excellence in April 2009. President Benard Simelton, who has been President of the Alabama State Conference since October 2009 stated that he was not aware of this award being presented to the Senator or any of his staff. Simelton was present at the convention during the time this award would have been presented according to the date on the award.”

McConnell said that in researching the dates in questions, NAACP members have found no evidence that an award to Sessions was part of the convention program. She said that a number of members who were present have been contacted, and none could recall such an award being presented.

I’m guessing the rain is not going to make it here: The NWS calls for a 10% chance of snow tonight, a 20% chance in the morning, then clearing and a high of 53.

the first year I lived here, I went skiing in Tahoe. Up at the top of the mountain, you could look both ways, toward California or Nevada. California - once you got past the white - was green. Nevada was brown. And this was during an EPIC El Nino year, when you might have thought the moisture would make it through. Nothing like a range of high mountains to wring all the water out of the atmosphere!

The laws of nature really do work. For example, no denial or Congressional circus act will change the basic facts that carbon dioxide is a significant factor in global temperatures, and human industrialization has dramatically increased the atmospheric concentration of carbon dioxide.

Well, not knowing a piece of evidence is one thing. (For example, Carbon 12 v Carbon 14 in the atmosphere - fossil fuels have no Carbon 14 because it all decayed by the time we discovered how to extract those fuels. Thus, the measurements of carbon in the atmosphere show a decreasing amount of Carbon 14 as the years of measurements roll on.)

After being presented with irrefutable evidence (such as Carbon 14 v Carbon 12, or the overwhelming evidence for evolution by natural selection, or tax cuts on the wealthy do not spur growth - see Kansas), a person is only left with:
a) Acceptance. Great! Learn something new every day.

Interestingly, I got into an online debate with a friend of mine about this. He’s very rational about pretty much everything else, but completely denialist about AGW. What I found was that being very bright and rational, added to unwillingness to accept the evidence, made him into an amazing rationalizer. His response to ‘we add X gigatonnes of Carbon to the atmosphere every year, and total atmospheric Carbon goes up by about 1/3X’ meant that I hadn’t proved we were doing it.

When I pressed him with the observation that if we WEREN’T adding it, the atmospheric Carbon would be going DOWN by 2/3X every year, he said, “You can’t prove that!”

Oh, and of course, he was a big fan of Anthony Watts.

Well, lying to yourself only hurts you.

It’s when denial moves into the realm of convincing others that your denial is true that I take issue with it.

My go-to is religious views: I do not hold any of them to be true. That said, if another person does, have at it, Hoss.

It is when that person tries to write their religious views into law that I have a problem with it.

Climate science is the same. I am not an expert in climate science (or any science); for that I defer to experts. I would no more tell a climate scientist I know better than she or he does than I would a cardiologist.

It wasn’t long ago that Americans regardless of political position relied on science to inform political decisions. Now it would appear science (or any expertise at all) is a political position and subject to opinion.

A man who pulled out a gun at a Don’t Shoot Portland march and pointed it at a crowd of protesters in downtown Portland was found guilty Friday of 21 felony and misdemeanor crimes.

Multnomah County Circuit Judge Thomas Ryan found Michael Aaron Strickland, 37, guilty of 10 counts of unlawful use of a weapon, 10 counts of menacing and one count of second-degree disorderly conduct for pointing his Glock semi-automatic handgun at 10 protesters.

The judge said Strickland didn’t have a reasonable fear that he was in imminent danger of getting hurt.

Strickland had claimed self-defense during the weeklong trial. He contended some protesters and anarchists wearing masks and carrying flagpoles had called him a racist, told him to leave, aggressively advanced toward him and pushed him. Some of the confrontation was caught on video — including Strickland’s video.
