The War on Whistleblowers

Updated 2024

Snowden, Assange and Manning statues unveiled in Berlin

May be a cartoon

We need to evaluate who our real heroes are. We need to acknowledge those who reveal a crime are not worse criminals than those who commit a crime. (Germans apparently get this. See Chelsea Manning, Julian Assange and Edward Snowden statues unveiled in Berlin    I understand the statues are gone now, but the heritage of the three individuals will live on in Wikileaks)

The reason I have so many references is to show this is a steadily increasing trend that I continuously update. It is not a vanishing blip on the radar. Failure to deal with this trend will have disastrous consequences for the future.

Obama, Biden,  and democrats have prosecuted whistleblowers just as have republicans. This amply documented (see references) but under reported fact has a negative effect on our republic.

Manning was tortured, denied trial for over two years, and pronounced guilty by Obama before trial. Snowden is still in exile. Thomas Drake was prosecuted for exposing the dishonesty and corruption of the NSA. Peacefully protesting in front of the White House will also land you in jail. These are just a few of many examples documented below.

The prosecution of whistleblowers  stands in sharp contrast to the criminals that the whistleblowers exposed who escaped prosecution.

Trump and republicans deserve no praise (see Beware the Trump Administration), but democrats are no longer even the lesser of two evils.  (See The Democratic Party is the More Effective of Two Evils and Beware the Biden Administration)  America will continue our descent towards post-constitution third world status until we change our course.

Help make your progressive case by using this documentation which is continuously updated.

Anytime someone in a dysfunctional system recognizes the dysfunction and attempts to point it out, they need to be prepared to be scapegoated and “punished”. That is sad but true. As a former government whistleblower who pointed out abuse and prevailed in a case against the Dept of Defense in 1998, I became aware of the same dynamics of “kill the messenger” when I pointed out dysfunction in the Austin ISD last year. Truth is threatening to people who are protecting their illusion. People who have been indoctrinated into a dysfunctional or corrupt system, whether it is a department of the government, a corporation, a school system, or an abusive family system, will retaliate to whistleblowers due to a conditioned sense of loyalty or obedience to abusive authority. It is like the conditioned behavior of Stockholm Syndrome. Authoritarianism has always been recognized in military dynamics to work well for creating dissociation as a coping mechanism for “trained killers”; however, the same coping with depersonalized dissociation has now become pervasive in mainstream society as a result of traumatic stress in childhood. America is suffering PTSD and we need to recognize the split functioning of Dr Jekell Mr Hyde that is evident in our society. We need to expose the dark side and try to restore wholeness before it becomes more Orwellian that it already is.
