Nelson Mandela went from prison to the presidency of his nation. Will this be Snowden’s fait? (6/25/2013)
Figure 1 above and its probability spreadsheet below.
FIGURE 1 AND ITS STATISTICAL SIGNIFICANCE. On Figure 1 the axis term isPRESIDENT followed by a transliteration of SNOWDEN that uses a letter sin rather than samech for the S sound. Normally I don’t like matrices that have Obama when his name is not the axis term, or at a special case skip (+/-1 or the skip of the axis term) or at least parallel to the axis term as it is in Figure 2. However when the all-too-easy-to find Obama is preceded by a letter bet for Barack, then the term is of statistical interest, especially if the matrix is relatively small, no row skip is required for the axis term, and the letters of B. OBAMA all touch each other as is the case in Figure 1. B. OBAMA is the main term of interest statistically, being found this close toPRESIDENT SNOWDEN against odds of about 134 to 1. B. OBAMA was a requirement for this matrix because there is a growing hatred for Obama, based in part on what is often seen as his complete disregard for the U.S. Constitution, The flip side of this hatred might be the election of a man that he wants to see in prison so much, perhaps because Snowden may have hacked into e-mails that show just how far Obama has strayed from our Constitution.

Of secondary interest is Senator Rand Paul, my current favorite pick for President in the 2016 election. Senator Paul has verbally defended Snowden, and could pardon him if elected to the presidency in 2016, with the all important proviso that Snowden does not cozy up to enemy governments like those in Russia or China. Paul’s analysis of the Snowden’s situation is identical with my own. On Figure 1 PAUL appears at a special case skip of -1. Odds against such an appearance were about 6.5 to 1 (not very striking because the name is only 3 letters in Hebrew). I looked for RAND with a 4-letter spelling of resh alef nun dalet and could not find it, but there is a 3-letter transliteration (resh nun dalet) that is seen sharing its letter daletwith that in SNOWDEN. It had about 1 chance in 2 to be somewhere on the matrix. Overall the matrix exists against odds of about 1,892.

Oaths in Nazi Germany were to Adolph Hitler. Oaths in the United States are only to the U.S. Constitution.
OATH OF OFFICE FOR THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES: “I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will faithfully execute the Office of President of the United States, and will to the best of my Ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States.”
OATH OF OFFICE THAT I TOOK AS A U.S. COAST GUARD OFFICER, AND 15 YEARS BEFORE THAT AS A U.S. NAVAL OFFICER:
I, Barry Roffman, do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which I am about to enter. So help me God.
OATH OF OFFICE TAKEN BY EDWARD SNOWDEN AND ALL U.S. GOVERNMENT WORKERS: Edward Snowden took an oath when he was hired to work for and with the National Security Agency. It also states:
I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which I am about to enter, so help me God.
That oath is not to follow the President regardless of whether he or she follows the Constitution. Nazi Germany had such oaths. Examples follow:
The Wehrmacht (German army) Oath of Loyalty to Adolf Hitler
“I swear by God this sacred oath that to the Leader of the German empire and people, Adolf Hitler, supreme commander of the armed forces, I shall render unconditional obedience and that as a brave soldier I shall at all times be prepared to give my life for this oath.”
The German Civil Service Oath
I swear: I will be faithful and obedient to the leader of the German empire and people, Adolf Hitler, to observe the law, and to conscientiously fulfill my official duties, so help me God!
Note that oaths (American and German) above, except that of the U.S. President, mention God. American oaths are only to the Constitution, not only to defend it, but to bear true faith and allegiance to it. That includes the Fourth Amendment.
THE FOURTH AMENDMENT TO THE UNITED STATES. Snowden claims to have taken the action he did in defense of the United States Constitution, in particular the 4th Amendment which states, “The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.”
It’s hard to read the above and not make a case that every single Government official who has ordered or participated in the search of general public e-mails and telephone records should not be tried, convicted, and incarcerated for his or her actions. This is especially true for any President who has issued or approved the universal search of all American e-mails and telephone calls. It should be just as obvious that, so long as he does not aid enemies of the United States in any attack against the United States, Edward Snowden should be cleared of any charges even though he failed to follow ideal conduct in fighting for our rights. He is not yet old enough to run for President. But a bit shy of the age of 30 when he took the actions that he did, he is also not experienced enough (are any of us?) to know how to tackle massive violations of the U.S. Constitution in a way that would not get him into trouble with the people who were doing all in their power to bypass the Constitution.
EDWARD SNOWDEN’S ACTIONS IN 1933 COULD HAVE PREVENTED MUCH OF THE HOLOCAUST. Edward Black, wrote a book entitled IBM AND THE HOLOCAUST. The following is an extract from the Wikipedia article about it and why we need people like Snowden to protect us from too much Government snooping:
The 1933 census, with design help and tabulation services provided by IBM through its German subsidiary, proved to be pivotal to the Nazis in their efforts to identify, isolate, and ultimately destroy the country’s Jewish minority. Black describes the situation faced by German Jews:
“But Jews could not hide from millions of punch cards thudding through Hollerith machines, comparing names across generations, address changes across regions, family trees and personal data across unending registries. It did not matter that the required forms or questionnaires were filled in by leaking pens and barely sharpened pencils, only that they were later tabulated and sorted by IBM’s precision technology.”
On September 13, 1935, Hitler demanded the immediate implementation of a “Law for the Protection of German Blood” which deprived Jews of German citizenship and prohibited them from having sexual relations with or from marrying Aryans. Machine-tabulated census data greatly expanded the estimated number of Jews in Germany by identifying individuals with only one or a few Jewish ancestors. Previous estimates of 400,000 to 600,000 were abandoned for a new estimate of 2 million Jews in the nation of 65 million.
Another German census was conducted on May 17, 1939, when 750,000 census takers conducted interviews with the country’s 22 million households, and also millions of factories. The purpose of the census was to identify the number of Jews in Germany and its newly expanded territories and to precisely locate each individual so that the Jewish population could be effectively ghettoized. Ancestral lines had to be documented by each head of household as part of the national census, which dwarfed in size and detail the 1933 Prussian census.
As the Nazi war machine occupied successive nations of Europe, capitulation was followed by a census of the population of each subjugated nation, with an eye to the identification and isolation of Jews and Gypsies. For example, the September 1, 1939invasion of Poland was followed by an October 14 order of the Special Operations unit of the German Secret Police for a full census of the Jewish population, information which supplemented published information from the 1931 general Polish census. These census operations were intimately intertwined with technology and cards supplied by IBM’s German and new Polish subsidiaries, which were awarded specific sales territories in Poland by decision of the New York office following Germany’s successful Blitzkrieginvasion.
In the case of Poland, the ordered census took place over several days, from December 17 to December 23, 1939. The census was both meticulous and cold-blooded, as Black notes:
“Each person over the age of twelve was required to fill out census and registration in duplicate, and then was fingerprinted. Part of the form was stamped and returned as the person’s new identification form. Without it, they would be shot. With it, they would be deported.”
Data generated by means of counting and alphabetization equipment supplied by IBM through its German and other national subsidiaries was instrumental in the efforts of the German government to concentrate and ultimately destroy ethnic Jewish populations across Europe, Black demonstrates. He also notes, in an understated aside, that fully half of IBM’s German subsidiary’s annual profit — RM 1.8 million — was suddenly generated in December 1939.
IBM technology in the camps
Black also reports that every Nazi concentration camp maintained its own Hollerith-Abteilung (Hollerith Department), assigned with keeping tabs on inmates through use of IBM’s punchcard technology. In his book, Black charges that “without IBM’s machinery, continuing upkeep and service, as well as the supply of punch cards, whether located on-site or off-site, Hitler’s camps could have never managed the numbers they did.
Each of the major concentration camps was assigned a Hollerith code number for paperwork purposes: Auschwitz — 001; Buchenwald — 002; Dachau — 003;Flossenbürg — 004; Gross-Rosen — 005; Herzogenbusch — 006; Mauthausen — 007;Natzweiler — 008; Neuengamme — 009; Ravensbrück — 010; Sachsenhausen — 011; and Stutthoff — 012.
Upon arrival at the camps in 1943, incoming prisoners would be examined for fitness to work, physical information would be recorded on a medical record, names would be cross-checked with data from the Political Section to determine whether the prisoner was additionally wanted for political offenses.
THE WHITE HOUSE PETITION TO PARDON SNOWDEN. You can sign a White House Petition to pardon Snowden HERE, but I would advise against it. You would just be putting your name on a White House enemies list, and we have already seen them use the IRS to audit their enemies (in particular the Tea Party and pro-Israel groups). Rather, I think the best course is this. Support any legitimate defense fund for Snowden, and when cleared, support him as a candidate for the House of Representatives or Senate (at 29 he is too young to run for the White House). Consider supporting Rand Paul for President in 2016. He may appoint Snowden to an office that will protect our Constitutional rightsagainst unlawful search and seizure.
