Soon you’ll be able to rank Glenn Greenwald up there with Arianna Huffington, Amy Goodman and Oprah as the biggest and richest fake liberal sell-outs to the Business Party this country has ever produced. For the record, Clinton doesn’t count because he was always a fascist sell-out from day One.
With the help of a billionaire “philanthropist” (who’s main interest is creating “business centered solutions to the political problems in America”.. which ironically, IS THE PROBLEM with America, that’s it’s “business centered”) named Pierre Omidyar (of eBay) , Glenn is leaving his job at the Guardian to start up his own internet network providing “news’ and “journalism” to those people out there starved for more Sunshine Press Productions’ version of the “truth”
“Glenn Greenwald, who has made headlines around the world with his reporting on U.S. electronic surveillance programs, is leaving the Guardian newspaper to join a new media venture funded by eBay founder Pierre Omidyar, according to people familiar with the matter.” Reuters
The opportunity is just so wonderful, according to Greenwald, no journalist could ever pass it by. Well, I guess that depends on what you call “journalism” Glenn.
“Greenwald did not specify what his new project would look like, describing it only as a “momentous new venture” and a “once-in-a-career-dream journalistic opportunity that no journalist could possibly decline.” He said that the site would be a general-interest outlet, that he would be responsible for its journalism output, and that it had substantial money behind it.
Speaking to the Washington Post’s Erik Wemple, Greenwald said the site would have branches in New York, Washington and San Francisco, and that it was being funded by a “particular backer.”
“It would be impossible for any journalist, let alone me, to decline this opportunity,” he added.” Huffington Post
In the interest of full disclosure, the same “particular backer” that is funding this new brand of “journalism” is partnered up with the Huffington Post on their Huffpost Hawaii brand of truth-telling. Guess that explains the glowing review of this news, huh?
In order to fully understand what this is all about, one has to first follow the money as someone once whispered in a bathroom stall.
Pierre Omidyar started up eBay, is currently chairman of the board of that company and he is a pure globalist. He is 46 years old and reportedly worth $8.5 billion dollars.
Greenwald’s new endevour is probably backed by Pierre through his “philanthropic” investment firm, the Omidyar Newtork.
Take a little gander at what they claim is their purpose”
“Omidyar Network is a philanthropic investment firm dedicated to harnessing the power of markets to create opportunity for people to improve their lives. Established in 2004 by eBay founder Pierre Omidyar and his wife Pam, the organization invests in and helps scale innovative organizations to catalyze economic, social, and political change.” Wiki page for Pierre Omidyar
Now, when we are faced with a new “journalistic” website coming out to help catalyze “economic, social and political change” with someone so involved in the Edward Snowden psyop at it’s helm, one has to wonder about what that “change” looks like. The Omidyar Network site has the exact same quote, only they’ve taken the word “political” out of it, I guess that was a bit obvious for them so they simply removed it before people started asking what kind of “political” change they had in mind for America.
Long ago I put forward the hypothesis that the Snowden psyop was all about readying the country to accept the failed CISPA bill. I stated that the timing of the new push to get CISPA passed dovetailed right into the timing of the Snowden “leaks” that weren’t actually leaks of anything new at all (check out William E. Binney for proof)
And speaking of timing, please read The Curious Timing of the Snowden “Leak” and Obama’s Formation of the PCLOB – Laying the Groundwork for CISPA and The Missing Motive of the Snowden Psyop: CISPA (yes… CISPA)
Now we have Glenn Greenwald partnering up with the owner and chairman of eBay though is globalist foundation to bring us even more “news”
What was eBay’s position on CISPA?
I’m glad you asked:
“Industry group Technet, which lists Microsoft, Salesforce, Visa, Cisco, Craigslist, Apple, eBay, Google and Yahoo among its members, sent a letter to leaders of the House Intelligence panel in which it makes it clear that it supports CISPA.
“Technet, the bipartisan policy and political network of technology CEOs that promotes the growth of the innovation economy, commends you for your work on cybersecurity and writes to express our support of H.R. 624, the ‘Cyber Intelligence Sharing and Protection Act of 2013,‘ wrote CEO Rey Ramsey.
“This bill recognizes the need for effective cybersecurity legislation that encourages voluntary, bi-directional, real time sharing of actionable cyber threat information to protect networks.” Inquirer April 18, 2013
Make a note of that date. It isn’t last year’s CISPA push, it’s this years and Snowden’s “leaks” came out in May, a month later.
Aside from owning eBay and backing CISPA, Greenwald’s new sugar daddy is one hell of a developer, owning golf courses and resort hotels all over the country. He also has a 48,000 square foot “home” in Henderson NV complete with 33 bedrooms. Here’s a bird’s eye view of it under construction.
Pierre also has a thing called the Democracy Fund where they try to finance for-profit companies and a slew of NGOs to help change the country. They use “of, by and for the people” as their slogan. The Democracy Fund created something called “Bipartisan Policy Center’s Democracy Program“
What Glenn is having created for him by this globalist billionaire is his own little network where he can be kingpin like Arianna Huffington, Glenn Beck or Di$info Jone$ for that matter.
Whatever else you wish to call it, it’s payment for services rendered.
The “debate” on how to fix our intelligence gathering operations is being held right now in congress and in bars and kitchens all across the country.
Truth is, we didn’t need the phony “debate”. We had a set of laws and they were being broken. So, they needed the artificial “debate” to justify changing them and CISPA is that change.
There’s a reason 800 major US companies support CISPA, because it will make them lots of money and the ones that it doesn’t aid directly, it will aid in the future when the internet is a closed system where the wealthiest control every possible version of what people come to see and read and understand as the truth of the country we live in.
You might not think Coke would give a crap about CISPA, but they do. With an open internet, we see what happens in Columbia when workers try to unite for better work conditions and pay. They get killed by Coke’s goon squads. So, with CISPA, Coke can effectively erase that little tid-bit of truth from the “interwebs”
You might not think that BP gives a crap about online freedoms and the 4th amendment, but they do. Look back on who and what was bringing out the truth about the spill in the Gulf and you have your answer right there.
There’s a reason these companies gave $65 million in donations last year to get CISPA supporting congressmen reelected.
And there is a reason that Glenn Greenwald is cashing in on the billionaire globalist’s dime. He provided a service and apparently will always provide a service that supports their business centered world view while disguised as some kind of “journalism” from a liberal point of view.
