The Snowden Cipher: Can You Break It?

(TFC) – Your privacy and way of life is in jeopardy. Snowden risked his life, freedom, and reputation to warn you. He deserves a pardon. He displayed himself as a true patriot.

In 2002, I developed a multi-step cipher. Over the years, it has been used to transmit information in the United States and in foreign countries. It has securely transmitted information across international borders and out of prisons. Maybe half a dozen people know the steps necessary to render the message below in plain text.

If you’re the first person who can break this cipher and notify us through our Facebook page, you’ll be sent a collection of shirts, stickers, and other goodies from The Fifth Column. If the system remains unbroken, I’d ask that it be known as the Snowden Cipher, in honor of a man who also remains unbroken.

The critical element in the system is a book cipher. You will need a King James Version of the Bible to complete this.

Regardless of what The Washington Post government mouthpiece says, it’s time to pardon Snowden. The government propagandists at the once-respected news outlet use the law of the United States to justify the law of the United States. It’s circular reasoning and is designed to further subjugate the American people under the thumb of the government control. Did Snowden violate US law? Yes. Of course. So did every other American hero who changed society.  Maybe in 150 years, Snowden can replace Harriet Tubman on the twenty dollar bill. An unjust law is no law at all. The editorial board over at the Post whined about the disruptions of “lawful intelligence-gathering” caused by Snowden’s leaks. The second the National Security Agency began spying on its own people, it ceased to be an intelligence agency. It’s a secret police force.

I wonder if The Washington Post would complain about the disruptions to the lawful activities during slavery. A constantly monitored soul is not free. The Washington Post once toppled an administration because it tapped a hotel room. A few decades later, they’re defending the surveillance of the entire nation.

The editorial board at The Washington Post is flatly wrong. It is time to pardon Snowden. It is time to bring him home as the hero he is.
