Obama Admin Sets New Guinness Book Record for Hypocrisy

President Obama - Hypocrisy World Record Holder
Hypocrisy World Record Holder

On July 18, 2013 at a White Press briefing Jay Carney on behalf of President Obama set a new Guinness Book World Record for Hypocrisy with this gem in response to a question about the conviction of anti-corruption whistleblower and Mayoral Candidate for Moscow, Aleksei A. Navalny on tax evasion charges:
We call on the Russian government to cease its campaign of pressure against individuals and groups seeking to expose corruption, and to ensure that the universal human rights and fundamental freedoms of all of its citizens, including the freedoms of speech and assembly, are protected and respected.

The talk of human rights was met with laughter by the Kremlin considering what the White House is trying to do to Edward Snowden. Russian President Vladimir Putin was quoted as saying that Washington is being hypocritical in complaining about Russian actions while seeking to prosecute a whistleblower who exposed American surveillance programs.

While President Obama and his minions would like to spin a story about what Edward Snowden is, a recent Quinquennial University poll found the majority of Americans identify him as a whistle-blower.

Here is the actual poll question and the results:


Do you regard Edward Snowden, the national security consultant who released information to the media about the phone scanning program, as more of a traitor, or more of a whistle-blower?
