Trevor Loudon’s New Zeal: Fox News Sees the Light on Edward Snowden
“Catherine Herridge, chief intelligence correspondent for Fox News Channel, reports, “A review of the NSA leaks by Fox News shows the majority of the leaks since June now deal with sources, methods and surveillance activities overseas, rather than the privacy rights of American citizens.”
In other words, NSA leaker Edward Snowden, who has been charged with espionage, stole NSA documents and leaked them for the express purpose of weakening America’s defenses against terrorism. To put it another way, Snowden was never the “whistleblower” he claimed to be, but has been serving the interests of America’s enemies and adversaries.”

Teressa Monroe Hamilton of Noisyroom.net: China Threatens Military Action Against Japan
“With no major world power posing any kind of a threat to them, China is donning their war paint and swaggering towards conflict. On the eve of Joe Biden visiting Japan, China ratcheted up the rhetoric of war and militarily threatened Japan over China’s newly declared air defense zone. They boldly state they will ‘enforce’ new aircraft controls in a maneuver that amounts to a dare to Japan to step over this midair red line. Poke, poke, threaten, dare – repeat until something happens:
Chinese Defense Ministry spokesman Geng Yangsheng accused Japan in a statement of “making trouble” and he warned Chinese military aircraft would enforce the newly imposed air defense identification zone, or ADIZ.
“Japan’s actions have seriously harmed China’s legitimate rights and security interests, and undermined the peace and stability in East Asia,” Geng said through the official Xinhua news agency. “China has to take necessary reactions.”
Geng listed a series of actions by Japan he said had increased tensions, including Tokyo’s frequent dispatch of ships and aircraft to areas near the disputed Senkaku islands, threats to shoot down Chinese drones, and overall escalation of regional tensions.
Without mentioning the United States, Geng also said other countries must “correct wrong remarks and wrongdoings,” he said.
“Other parties should not be incited, or send wrong signals to make a very few countries go further on the wrong track, which will follow the same old disastrous road and undermine regional and world peace,” Geng said, insisting that China adheres to peaceful development and defensive policies.
The comments were the most forceful by a Chinese government spokesman since Beijing unilaterally declared the ADIZ that overlaps Japan’s air defense zone and covers the Senkakus, which China calls Diaoyu.
Of course, the US has already seemingly capitulated to China, who owns us, by telling American Airlines and others to submit and comply with the ‘so-called’ Chinese air space demands. In essence, hanging our allies Japan and South Korea out to dry and at the mercy of the Chinese communists. It’s a complete turn around from Obama’s previous stance of supporting Japan on this issue, invoking defense commitments under the U.S.-Japan defense treaty.”
