Over the weekend, Glenn read a shocking story out of Canada where a DHS insider warned that things were about to get very ugly very anyone exposing this administration either as a whistleblower or as a dissenting voice in the media.
Doug Hagmann with the Canadian Free Press explained his encounter with a DHS insider:
“If anyone thinks that what’s going on right now with all of this surveillance of American citizens is to fight some sort of foreign enemy, they’re delusional. If people think that this ‘scandal’ can’t get any worse, it will, hour by hour, day by day. This has the ability to bring down our national leadership, the administration and other senior elected officials working in collusion with this administration, both Republican and Democrats. People within the NSA, the Department of Justice, and others, they know who they are, need to come forth with the documentation of ‘policy and practice’ in their possession, disclose what they know, fight what’s going on, and just do their job. I have never seen anything like this, ever. The present administration is going after leakers, media sources, anyone and everyone who is even suspected of ‘betrayal.’ That’s what they call it, ‘betrayal.’ Can you believe the size of their cahones? This administration considers anyone telling the truth about Benghazi, the IRS, hell, you name the issue, ‘betrayal,’” he said.
“We know all this already,” I stated. He looked at me, giving me a look like I’ve never seen, and actually pushed his finger into my chest. “You don’t know jack,” he said, “this is bigger than you can imagine, bigger than anyone can imagine. This administration is collecting names of sources, whistle blowers and their families, names of media sources and everybody they talk to and have talked to, and they already have a huge list. If you’re not working for MSNBC or CNN, you’re probably on that list. If you are a website owner with a brisk readership and a conservative bent, you’re on that list. It’s a political dissident list, not an enemy threat list,” he stated.
After reading this story, Glenn forwarded it on to TheBlaze news team to verify it and see how it matched up with the information they were getting from their sources. What he received in response from the team at TheBlaze was one of the most chilling things he has ever read.
“I found that and I sent that immediately to my global information desk in New York,” Glenn said. “And this is the responsive: Glenn, I can’t tell you about this source or this story, but I can tell you this: One, our sources have been increasingly afraid and have insisted in some cases on similar clandestine arrangements to deliver information.”
“Two, they have avoided all e‑mails, cellphones from the get‑go and that is becoming even more the case of late,” he continued, “They have reported increased security and scrutiny on their jobs, along with warnings of what happens ‘to those that commit treason’.”
“Three, they are uniformly panicked and they feel what info they have has got to get out to be broadcast to the broadest possible group as quickly as possible. They are growing very frustrated by the lack of response from the American people and are becoming increasingly bold. See the Guardian and WaPo leaks.They have a fear that they are about to be shut down.”
“Four, many know far more than they have shared and they are trying to figure out ways, as are we, to insulate them so the information can be revealed.”
Glenn asked for the prayers and support of the audience, warning that things were only going to get harder from here.
“We work with people on a daily basis who mean it. Unfortunately I do. My life, my fortune, and my sacred honor. It is not something that I have ever seriously thought I would ever be asked to give. But in the last six years I’ve had to make a decision: My life, my fortune, and my sacred honor. I will not be part of whatever it is we’re creating. It won’t be built in my name. I will not be eternally damned for playing any role in the loss of man’s freedom. I won’t. I want my name clearly on the record books, the eternal record books, as someone who stood. I will give my children ‑‑ probably damn my children in some regard short‑term. But I will give my children and their children the opportunity to be proud that my grandfather never picked up a gun and my grandfather always preached peace. My grandfather stood. My grandfather started speaking out as soon as he figured it out, and he never sat down against all the odds. And I work with people in this building and in New York that do the same thing every day. And we have whistleblowers that are doing the same. But we need your help,” Glenn said.
