Selacia: When the World Puts You on Edge -Remedy for Overwhelm-


 

-Remedy for Overwhelm-
by Selacia
So much is happening so fast now that the August Solar Eclipse may seem like last year. The remake of our world is getting messier by the day. For most sensitives living through this evolutionary earthquake, there can be a sense of overwhelm and insecurity about what it all means and what happens next. Indeed, the August 21 Great American Eclipse amplified existing destabilization in the US and elsewhere. Continue reading for context of what’s unfolding and some simple remedies for overwhelm.

Background

It’s not your imagination that our world has gotten crazier this year. The level of polarity, tribalism, and distrust existing in society is palpable. As I’ve written about recently, much of this is very old, but the energies of these times are helping to bring ancient wounded conditioning out of the shadows.

This isn’t the usual “coming out” party either. That’s because humanity on the whole has advanced spiritually in recent decades – allowing a bigger and more prolonged spotlight on the dysfunctional stuff in the dark basement of things that no one wanted to see. We’ve had spotlights in centuries past, too, but now we have a critical mass of people awakening.

To be sure, it’s up to us how we respond. As divine changemakers, we are at the helm of the changes, consciously aware of the significance of these moments on Earth. We are here now purposefully to help create healing solutions. We’ve had lifetimes of experiences that helped prepare us to be here now. Trust this when you think you have no answers or when you simply doubt that you can go on.

A Reason for Overwhelm

With all that’s going on, it’s understandable that you would at times feel on edge. Feelings of overwhelm are common, too.

Consider, however, that one reason for overwhelm isn’t just what is happening, but how you learn about and process what’s happening.

It’s only in recent decades that we had 24/7 instant global news with visuals, with billions of people following tragic events in the moments that they occurred.

Because of the Internet and immediate streaming of news, not only is there no delay hearing and seeing what happened, but there’s the  repetitive effect of seeing bits and pieces of the same news so many times that the body’s nervous system can go into overload.

I mention this here, as many times people are not conscious to this effect. Here’s another thing that can add to a feeling of overwhelm – being on social media for extended periods of time after a disaster, reading friends’ comments in the news feed. I’m not suggesting that you avoid social media or the Internet – simply become aware of how you ingest information and potential impacts so that you can remedy as noted below.

5 Tips for Overwhelm

FIRST, when there’s a disaster in the news or you’re having your own personal crisis, strive to be present and remember to breathe. Being present means being aware of what you are saying and doing, and for how long. The energy fall-out from one hour ingesting tragic news or focusing on a personal crisis is compounded when you do that same thing for several hours. Tune into yourself to know when to take an energy break.

SECOND, regardless of what you are learning about a disaster or your own situation, become practiced in questioning things and asking for a higher view. Quite often, pieces of information are missing or perhaps presented in a way that you may not fully understand. Don’t assume that you have all of the information.

THIRD, as I wrote about this week on Instagram, “Use your light, not hate, to counter evil. The light prevails.”

FOURTH, remember that in troubling times, the light is always there. When you connect with spirit and your inner being, you have a boundless resource to face what comes and to prevail against all odds.

FIFTH, know that goodness is at the core of all beings, including those who harm others. Be a champion for goodness, striving to see it in the world even on dark days. Live your life as an example to others of how to be loving and kind.

NFL Hysteria a Reminder of How the Elite Have Controlled Men for Thousands of Years

While I am well aware of the fact that things like sporting events are used to manipulate and control the masses, I do enjoy watching football and baseball, as well as Formula1 racing, and many other “sports” such as golf and surfing. (However, after Brady’s witch hunt and wrongful persecution, like most New Englanders, I am NOT a fan of the NFL’s penchant for drama, or of Goodell, and I never will be.)  Sometimes we can enjoy a distraction that allows us to decompress from the mundane “unreality”, as long as we don’t take it too seriously. I can’t afford to see these games in person, so I especially enjoy watching at home, where I can hear and even rewind the play calls, without the distraction of  drunken, shouting pub pals.

As one who works with the body, I admire individual athletic achievement, regardless of team affiliation, and I marvel at what the body is capable of. Yet to me, ultimately, these are just games. I may not agree with everyone’s personal choices in how to express their views, but I defend their right to express them. No one should be subject to character assassination over perceived slights. People need to lighten up and stop taking everything so personally. This article makes some valid points about the hysteria and self-righteousness, and the larger agenda, that IMHO, is taking all the fun out of the games.

NFL Hysteria a Reminder of How the Elite Have Controlled Men for Thousands of Years

“When a hundred and fifty of the most powerful men and women in the world can meet in secret… to plot the fate of billions, and nobody even cares about it, but six football players go to lunch together, and it’s in the headlines across the country, you have a reflection of the society in which that exists. And it is a sick, sick society that is doomed to self-destruction.” ~William Coope

And now, as ‘take a knee‘ protests have swept the nation, the NFL’s image has just been shattered in a catch-22 of brainwashing and cognitive dissonance. What originally started as a statement against the very real and destructive issue of police brutality has become a hysteria-fueled social movement and front page news. People are destroying thousands of dollars worth of team branded merchandise to demonstrate that complaints against the state will not be tolerated.

Now, the president has even chimed in, adding fuel to the fire and doubling down on the notion that the National Football League is first and foremost a patriotic organization. In this country, and in this sport, the government is not to be criticized. Not for brutalizing the citizenry with out of control police, or anything else.

Final Thoughts

In a society as rigidly controlled by a monolithic, top-down, know-it-all organization like the state, the archetypal energy of the male is manageable only by suppressing man’s natural drive to protect his community. This is how the elite have controlled men since the days of the Roman Empire.

When President Eisenhower left office, he warned us that the U.S. was changing under the pressures of a new world, and that a military industrial complex had emerged which would pose a sincere menace to a free society. Fast forward almost 60 years and his words are quite prescient.

“Now this conjunction of an immense military establishment and a large arms industry is new in the American experience. The total influence—economic, political, even spiritual—is felt in every city, every Statehouse, every office of the Federal government.

In the councils of government, we must guard against the acquisition of unwarranted influence, whether sought or unsought, by the military-industrial complex. The potential for the disastrous rise of misplaced power exists and will persist. We must never let the weight of this combination endanger our liberties or democratic processes. We should take nothing for granted. Only an alert and knowledgeable citizenry can compel the proper meshing of the huge industrial and military machinery of defense with our peaceful methods and goals, so that security and liberty may prosper together.” ~Dwight D. Eisenhower

New Cobra Interview by Essayenya Mosteenya ~ 07.06.2017 | Prepare for Change

New Cobra Interview by Essayenya Mosteenya ~ 07.06.2017

Transcript of Essayenya Mosteenya’s interview with COBRA – JULY 6, 2017

=============================================================

EM: We were told that for the Earth to be liberated, the critical mass needs to be reached; however, in the recent conference, you say from now on, we no longer need so many as long as there is ONE single person who is fully connected with their I AM presence. What has happened for the Light Forces to have this message delivered to us?
C: Okay. These are two aspects of the same situation. One thing is the global critical mass which assists a lot in the planetary liberation and the other thing which is also true is that with just one person with a perfect connection to their I AM presence and with a complete understanding of the situation can liberate the planet so usually it’s a combination of both factors that can assist in transformation.

EM: Where should people start if they want to reach this fullest state of connection to their I AM presence? By being honest with their souls?

C: This is a good start, yes.

EM: In Godfre’s “Unveiled Mysteries”, it said people used to know their origins, the used to know their Source, and they were carefully guided and protected by their I AM presence. Would you say that when this FULL connection with the I AM presence takes place, people will, at least, know they are no longer alone, though they might still have some doubts about how protected they are and whether the Light Forces are always around? Can this kind of knowing, in spite of some doubts, count as a form of full connection?

C: Gradually as your connection with your I AM presence improves there will be no longer any sense of loneliness and the protection will increase as your connection with your I AM presence increases. This is why it is very good to connect with your I AM presence with a pillar of light – as I have posted a link to that some time ago on my blog. There was a very nice article about a pillar of light…column of light…connecting with your I AM presence and that connection is one of the strongest forms of protection against any negativity that people [inaudible] can do on this planet.

EM: You said St. Germain was not aware of the planetary situation enough, and that to have complete success in this mission by having one single human liberate Earth via full connection with his/her I AM presence, one needs to be aware of many facts that St. Germain was not aware of at that time. How is knowing the planetary situation enough going to assist in this mission? Why do people need to be aware of the many facts that St. Germain was not aware of at that time?

C: Okay. You don’t need to be aware of those facts to connect with your I AM presence. But if you are aware of those facts and at the same time connected with your I AM presence, your I AM presence will begin transforming those facts. And that’s how you can be more efficient in the planetary liberation.

EM: What do you mean by FULL connection with the I AM presence? Could you give us an example of how this full connection will manifest, if a person is to be aware of many facts that St. Germain was not aware of at that time?

C: That full connection can manifest in different ways. It depends on the individual because your I AM presence will always give you guidance about how it will manifest so this is a very individual situation – it’s not the same for everybody.

EM: So, it (the FULL connection with I AM presence) varies from person to person?

C: Yes.

EM: Is it true that what really preoccupies the Great White Brotherhood is the relationship that man has with his almighty God self?

C: The purpose of the ascended beings is to improve the conditions of every human being in two ways. Number one: by increasing their connection with their I AM presence. Number two: by improving their outer life conditions. So it’s both (of these things).

EM: Is it a good idea to interact with Ascended Masters and even our Higher Selves in the way we would interact with our friends? For instance, besides sharing our bitterness with them, we could also share some funny anecdotes in our lives, and maybe make fun of them like we do with actual friends?

C: Yes, you can interact with them as with your friends. Exactly.

EM: Is there a certain level of bonding that happens in this kind of interaction?

C: Yes, of course. There is always a heart connection which happens in the interaction with ascended beings.

EM: During these years, although we might have some quarrels with our family, it doesn’t necessarily mean we don’t love them. When we calm ourselves down, we just move along and cherish the time we spend together. Some people are asking whether this form of relationship can be applied to the relationship with our I AM presence and even to the Light Forces?

C: Yes.

EM: Have the Light Forces (even for Ascended Masters, and Source) ever worried that if the Event should be delayed further, they will run the risk of losing some Star Seeds?

C: They are fully and completely aware of that situation.

EM: Do they every worry?

C: I would not say worry in a human sense but they are aware of it and they do whatever they can to improve that situation.

EM: Is it true that throughout all the years of Galactic Wars that some beings in both Light and Dark Forces have grown tired of this battle that seems never end, and they have come to the realization that unity could not be obtained by controlling and subduing the opposite polarity?

C: I would say that it is not possible to reconcile those polarities in a harmonious way because the Dark Forces have no [inaudible] intention of cooperating. So the only way that this can be resolved is by transporting certain of those beings into the Galactic Central Sun. There is no other way. The Light Forces were trying to resolve that conflict in a peaceful way for a very long time – even for too long a time – and it was not successful. So the only way out is that certain beings will simply have to be disintegrated.

EM: Are we now in the third attempt – according to some websites – to achieve unity by having the Light to integrate their own shadows, and SIMULTANEOUSLY by having the Dark to embrace their inner Light?

C: No. As I have said, those attempts have been finished. Now the only thing that is remaining is removal of all darkness as soon as possible and liberation of every sentient being from the grip of the Dark Forces as soon as possible in a safe way.

EM: Did certain factions of the dark forces come to realize that what they’ve done to us is completely wrong, and sign the peaceful contract to end the Galactic war with the Light Forces back in 1996?

C: Okay. There were certain factions that actually have surrendered to the light in the time period between 1994-95 until 1998. There were some massive surrenders taking place but unfortunately this did not include all the dark forces – just one faction.

EM: Did these beings that signed the peaceful contracts use to be at the upper ladder like the Chimera or Archons are? Or were all of them below the Chimera or Archons?

C: No. It was simply another faction which surrendered.

EM: With their knowledge of the weapons they made, wouldn’t it help the Light Forces remove the bombs much easier if these factions were to surrender?

C: It would actually be much easier if there were not a hostage situation but there is a hostage situation on this planet and that’s why the Light Forces need to be very careful how they deal with the toplet bombs. Otherwise, this situation would be resolved much faster.

EM: So what we are dealing with over these years is the remaining factions who are quite upset about the contracts to end the Galactic War, and still want to maintain quarantine Earth, want no peace in the universe, and certainly want more slaves by twisting some teachings in the “Law of One”?

C: Yes.

EM: Are the Creator God and the Prime Creator God waiting for the Galactic Confederation of Light to clear the bombs and the black stone, or have some secret operations been authorized to prevent the Event from being further delayed and ensure the final breakthrough?

C: There are many layers. This is actually one big operation that has many, many layers and some of those layers are classified and I am [inaudible] (prevented) from talking about them so I am talking about them as much as I can without jeopardizing the success and safety of the operations but there is much more going on than is being posted.

EM: What’s the “original” meaning of the ‘Law of One” from the perspective of Light Forces?

C: I cannot comment on that channeled material because neither I nor the Light Forces can completely agree with what is written there.

EM: If the removing of toplet bombs proves to be so much more difficult than the Light Forces expected, then how come beings from a much higher dimensions waited until now to intervene? Is it because of the hostage-retaliation mechanism once again?

C: Actually it was always quite challenging to intervene on this planet because of this hostage situation and in the last 25,000 years the Light Forces always needed to be very careful in all their operations. And the situation is still not resolved because when the situation is resolved we will have the breakthrough. We will have the final liberation.

EM: Are these much higher dimensional beings one of the Seven Tribes of Light?

C: I cannot answer this question because I do not agree with Seven Tribes of Light – with that description.

EM: In view of the control over the flow of intel by the Chimera group, is it true that even for Resistance Members, they themselves also underestimated the quarantine Earth status, and are as shocked as we are? 

C: Yes, they also underestimated the situation and it was quite a surprise for them as well. Not as much as for the surface population but still they were not expecting this to be so difficult and they were not expecting this to be taking so long.

EM: Even for the Galactic Confederation of Light, the Ascended Masters, and the Sphere Being Alliance, they all experience the same setbacks and can certainly understand the frustration and pains of the surface population?

C: I cannot comment on the Sphere Being Alliance because I either do not have contact with that group or I perceive those things differently but yes, for the Ascended Masters, even they were not expecting something like this. Actually nobody in this Universe was expecting the darkness to go so far and nobody was expecting the situation to be so difficult and so challenging so nobody was prepared for this really.

EM: What about Source?

C: Source – of course the Source was and is aware of this. But communication with the Source is never perfect in this dimension of the Universe. And understanding of the cosmic situation is never perfect because of the primary anomaly so this is why this perception from the Source did not completely transmit into the manifested Universe.

EM: Would you agree that even for Wingmakers, they have experienced the same setback?

C: They have experienced the same setback in a different way. Not so directly, not so drastically but more as the frustration of not being able to transmit the divine plan more efficiently to the Galactic Light Forces and to intervene more directly in the planetary situation. Their original plan was more direct contact with the surface population, more disclosure, and faster liberation.

EM: Is it true that Source with its all-seeing eye knows every scheme of the Dark Forces, but with hostages being held, the Source has to allow the control of the intel flow? Correct?

C: Unfortunately, yes, that is true.

EM: So the Source knows every scheme of the Dark Forces?

C: Yes.

EM: Can people ask the Source to intervene much more in view of the control of the intel flow?

C: It is good to ask Source for more direct intel flow and more direct intervention. That’s actually a very good idea.

EM: What would happen now if the Light Forces intervene with MILITARY FORCE to liberate Earth instead of focusing on removing the remaining bombs and disabling the black stone?

C: Okay. There is a certain possibility that the bombs would get detonated which would be – I would say – a global planetary cataclysm that I don’t think anybody would be able to survive. And the risk is still too great for that.

EM: So the Light Forces can’t intervene with military force because the bombs would explode?

C: Yes. Actually I would say that one faction is quite impatient right now and they would just like to intervene directly but they are being held back because the risk is still too big at this point.

EM: With the intel-compartmentalization, it might be hard for some to regain their faith in the Light Forces. What can be done if these people still want to assist the Light?

C: If people understand the situation more they will gain trust in the Light Forces again – and especially they will gain trust in the Light Forces when the Light Forces will be able to intervene more directly and more efficiently. Then that trust will be reinstated again.

EM: How does the Sphere Being Alliance assist the liberation?

C: Again, I cannot speak about that particular group because I have no connection with it. From my perspective I would describe this group as the Galactic Central Race and the Galactic Central Race is Number One – directing the flow of energies from the Galactic Center to the Solar System and it’s also directing the flow of Galactic Liberation energies from the Galactic Central Sun through every individual and group that is assisting in the planetary liberation, supporting them as much as possible directly and indirectly.

EM: Have the Light Forces also been integrating their own shadows over these years to help shut down this hologram of separation?

C: The Light Forces are always integrating their shadow as much as possible.

EM: Even Source, the Ancient Guardian Races and the Ascended Masters?

C: Yes. Their shadow does not manifest as darkness but simply as a lack of complete cosmic understanding and they’re always working on improving their understanding of the situation and doing whatever they can.

EM: What are the methods of shadow integration? Could you give us some examples?

C: Basically the principle is very simple. It’s to be honest with yourself, acknowledging all shadow aspects within and just observing them and being a loving witness to them and then they will get transformed.

EM: Before incarnation, we also sign contracts with the Light Forces. Are those contracts mainly dealing with protection?

C: Okay, basically one of the major contracts was done about your mission. So you made your agreement with the Light Forces that you will carry your mission and also major protection and life course agreements were made but the problem is here that many people did not follow up with those agreements and this is one of the reasons why this planetary situation is taking so long.

EM: So most of them don’t even follow their protection contracts with the Light Forces?

C: They don’t follow any of the agreements that were made, and that’s the main problem here. One of the main problems on this planet.

EM: So even with safety contracts with the Light Forces prior to birth, it certainly wouldn’t hurt if we ask again a FULL protection from them as we awake during the transition, right?

C: Yes, but what I’m saying here is that the people who were incarnated did not follow up with their contract. They did not follow the agreements and this is why the protection grid has collapsed on the surface of the planet.

EM: Among Sanat Kumara’s various incarnations, did he, as a human, ever question himself about the value of this exile before his ascension?

C: Every human individual before the ascension had those moments.

EM: How did he overcome this bewilderment?

C: This always happens with the connection with the I AM presence.

EM: Do all Lords of Fire yearn to live in happiness with their multidimensional selves again after the Even just as the day they used to live together in previous Golden Age?

C: Okay, all Lords of Fire have ascended a long time ago and they are always living in a state of happiness.

EM: Oh, they have left this plane?

C: They are all ascended and they live in a state of happiness.

EM: According to “Unveiled Mysteries”, humans were intended to lead a life in prosperity and abundance with God and that was the very reason why humanity were created at first so as to live as Father and Son, but humanity at that time felt they were “less perfect” than Gods, disregarded Gods’ warning about their impending adversity during cycle after cycle and worse, were later manipulated by the dark forces to doubt the Source, and thus they were not so ready to shoulder their responsibility as a co-creator? Is that correct?

C: Yes, that is correct.

EM: Is that why shadows must be integrated now if people wish to take that sovereignty back?

C: Yes, of course.

EM: But how did humans have those flaws when they were created? Were they created by Gods?

C: They were created with very advanced creator races, if we are speaking of the human evolution that belongs to this planet. But there are some people on this planet that came originally from the Source through the Galactic Sun birth process.

EM: But why do humans have those flaws?

C: Because of the interaction with the primary anomaly.

EM: Is it true a new type of being would come into emergence as a result of this shadow integration? A brand new kind, called the Man of the Sixth Race?

C: Basically the Man of the Sixth Race is the next stage of evolution which has already started a few centuries ago and this new stage of evolution is having a quantum leap right now and will have the biggest quantum leap at the time of the Event.

EM: You were threatened by the cabal years ago. How did you get past those traumas?

C: Basically there was a need for a lot of healing and integration which took quite a long time and what also helped was that I received intel that explained to me exactly what was going on, why it happened, and how to protect myself in the future. I have received very powerful protection protocols that protected me from that time on and basically I was contacted by the Resistance at the time of those attacks and shortly after those attacks with very direct and precise instructions about what to do to protect myself.

EM: Is it true that if certain intel is too overwhelming for some people to take in, that intel will become extremely shocking for them, and they then, psychologically speaking, “subconsciously” begin playing the movies, such as alien invasions, devil possessions, and going crazy, in their heads without consciously being aware of it?

C: Basically when the big changes happen and when a lot of very challenging intel is released, there will be a lot of support from the Light Forces and not so much of a negative influence and this is the reason why it will be easier for people to integrate all those disturbing pieces of intel. So it will not be as hard as some people are afraid it will.

EM: If a person asks to be protected by the Light Forces, but still sinks into their own doubt, that person will continue thinking this way, and even if the Light Forces are actually offering help, they still won’t feel it. So for the protection to work, our shadows of doubt and fear must be integrated to a certain level where we will no longer get mired down in them, is that correct?

C: This is one part of the situation but not the only part of the situation. It’s always good to integrate the shadow. But the Light Forces cannot completely protect us at this point. The do not control the situation completely but it always helps to integrate your shadow and clear your fears because fear is a doorway through which the dark forces can enter. The more of the fear that you process, the easier it is for you to be protected.

EM: Before these Ascended Masters ascend, do they also have their fair share of mind control as we do?

C: Yes of course. They have this.

EM: How do they liberate themselves from all this mind control? By loving and accepting themselves more?

C: Basically the situation with mind control was much easier in past centuries. And especially before WWII, it was much easier to ascend and most people have achieved their ascension before that time.

EM: Should people learn to be more grateful for what they have, and have sympathy for others, instead of being constantly mired in guilt?

C: Gratitude is a very healing emotion. If you are able to have it, that’s a good thing but don’t force yourself into this. So positive emotions tend to improve your state of consciousness and tend to improve your life conditions always. And negative emotions tend to attract more of the same negativity.

EM: Can all this mind programming be healed pretty fast by using the technology from the Light Forces?

C: Yes.

EM: Should people be worried about what they’ve done in past lives, or should they ask the Light Forces to infuse unconditional love and light to all their deeds in past lives on their behalf?

C: It is always good to ask the Light Forces for unconditional forgiveness and to release the past, learn from it, understand it, and then move on.

EM: Corey revealed that the Blue Avians won’t respond to Agarthans’ telepathy and he said during one exchange between the Agarthans and the Guardians, the Guardians personally told the Agarthans that they do not tend the Earth as well as the Guardians think they should, and the Guardians are quite upset about them. Do you think that it might be genuine how these Guardians feel?

C: Okay, I cannot confirm that particular part of Corey Goode’s intel.

EM: Do the Light Forces have any “special” gifts for mankind and the Starseeds after the Event?

C: There will be many special gifts and many wonderful surprises as humanity after the Event begins to enter the Galactic Society. So it will be the beginning of something wonderful that we have all been waiting for and that we have all been dreaming about and manifesting consciously and working for.

EM: Could you talk about some of the gifts right now?

C: It is not time yet.

EM: Okay. There used to be a specific Ascension group in a certain country. Where could people find these beings?

C: There was a very specific Ascension group in the United States in the years between 1994 and 1998, yes, and this group has ascended and is no longer present on the surface of this planet.

EM: Who are the other six Kumaras, the remaining six (13 in total)? Who are they?

C: They are simply very advanced beings that are assisting in transmuting the energies from the Galactic Central Sun to Planet Earth and stabilizing the situation here.

EM: Do all these 13 Kumaras have higher selves back in Source?

C: They are their higher selves, actually, and they are connected with the Source.

EM: Do all the 13 Kumaras have daughters and sons?

C: They are not incarnated human beings so they do not have daughters and sons in that particular way.

EM: So Lady Meta is not the daughter of Sanat Kumara?

C: No.

EM: Then who is Lady Meta?

C: A certain ascended being that is part of the soul group of Sanat Kumara.

EM: How do we connect with them?

C: There are many different ways of connection and I will not name them because they are all over the internet and each particular being has her or his own way of connecting.

EM: If we see a person suffering financially on the news, we often later learn that that person is offered a job by a local owner of a factory. Why does the same kind of assistance not happen to lightworkers and lightwarriors?

C: Sometimes this happens, but there are two factors here. The first one is the willingness of that particular lightworker to manifest abundance and the second one is the level of interference that happens. In the case of the lightworkers, the Dark Forces usually tend to interfere more with their lives.

EM: What do you mean by “Be you. The world will adjust” in your ATVOR Project post?

C: It means simply being yourself, being sincere with yourself, doing what you feel is the right thing to do, and not surrendering to the controlling factors around you. And if you are yourself, then this will create a very powerful manifestation vortex which will begin to adjust the reality around you to your own I AM presence more and more.

EM: How do some strong occult positive forces dissolve the energy background of the old system which was enabling spiritual slavery that was happening on this planet?

C: The Light Forces, what they are doing, is they are working with a planetary energy grid as I have explained in my post on Atlantis. This is a very good explanation of what’s going on.

EM: Will shadow integration assist the Light Forces to dissolve the energy background of the old system?

C: Yes.

EM: That would be all. Is there anything you want to add?

C: Nothing in particular. I would just say for everybody to keep the vision. Hold the vision. Visualize a better life for all of us. Visualize liberation for humanity. And the other thing I would repeat again – train yourself in teamwork. Teamwork is very important in this stage.

EM: Thank you for taking time to do this interview.

C: Okay, thank you very much.

Cobra Interview by Rob Potter | The Portal

There was immense opposition to this interview being posted. Two engineered emergencies during the recording and two computer hacks during the editing and publishing process were not enough to stop this, but the posting was delayed nevertheless. Make note that the first 35 minutes of the interview were recorded in early April, the second half in early May. Obviously certain interest groups mentioned in this interview did not wish this information to be released, but here it is, in audio format and as a transcript:

If Rob’s website gets hacked again, the transcript is available here:

Benjamin Fulford: Khazarian mafia offensive loses steam but high level intrigue continues/

Benjamin Fulford: Khazarian mafia offensive loses steam but high level intrigue continues/
Posted by benjamin, May 1, 2017

Humanity’s war to free itself from Satanic Khazarian mafia rule is heading towards final victory but some tough final battles lie ahead of us. The month of April saw a major offensive by the Satanists on many fronts but, despite causing much nuisance, their efforts to either start World War 3 or else regain control of the world’s financial system failed. Nonetheless, high level intrigue continues in Europe, East Asia, the US the Middle East and elsewhere. In the midst of all this, the US Corporate government was able to avoid bankruptcy and kick the can down the road for a few more months or, until the high level power struggle ends.

One of the most intense secret battlefields last week was Japan. NSA and CIA sources in Asia both confirm that leading Satanist Leo Zagami and his goons were in Japan seeking, among other things, to stage a sarin gas attack on the Tokyo subway system to blame on North Korea. That probably is the real reason Japan temporarily shut its subway system last week “in response to a North Korean missile test.”

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-4458122/Tokyo-subway-shut-fears-North-Korean-attack.html

Gnostic Illuminati Grandmaster “Alexander Romanov” also went into hiding last week to avoid what NSA sources warned him would be an attempt on his life by Zagami and his goons. Zagami did not respond to these allegations by the time this newsletter went public.

The other thing going on in Japan is that cars carrying members of the Japanese royal family have come under attack in several incidents in recent days, according to right wing sources close to the imperial family. These attacks were meant to intimidate the Emperor into using his seal to allow large denomination bonds to be monetized, the sources say. These bonds included “super Petchilis that were used by the former Republic of China to build that countries’ infrastructure,” according to US Defense Intelligence Agency sources. The last person to show me a super Petchili was Leo Zagami.

The other group stirring up trouble in the Far East these days is the French branch of the Rothschild family, multiple sources agree. The French Rothschilds are the main instigators of the recent efforts to provoke a battle between the US and North Korea. That is because the French Rothschilds want to replace North Korean strong man Kim Jong Un with a fake Kim Han Sol controlled by them. That is why they recently staged the murder of a man they claimed to be Kim Jong Nam, the elder half-brother of Kim Jong Un and father of Kim Han Sol. Chinese government sources, Japanese military intelligence and Asian secret society sources all confirm the Kim Jong Nam recently killed in Malaysia was not the real deal and that the Kim Han Sol who appeared on U-tube shortly after the supposed assassination was also a fake. The real Kim Jong Nam and son are at a safe location in China, the Chinese sources say.

The Rothschilds are trying desperately to get their hands on gold to avoid bankruptcy and, as a result of this, they lust after the gigantic gold and other mineral deposits in North Korea. That is the real reason they want to place a proxy of theirs in charge of that country, the sources say. Now we can understand why all the sudden escalation of threats against North Korea.

There is also a strong push to place Rothschild agent Taro Aso as Prime Minister of Japan, the Japanese right wing sources say. Since Aso is married into the French branch of the Rothschild family, an Aso regime would allow this family to reassert their rule over Japan. White Dragon Society sources say they believe neither Rothschild man Aso nor Rockefeller agent Ichiro Ozawa should be allowed anywhere near the Japanese Prime Minister’s office. Aso is also the person responsible for seizing all of the revenue from publishing this newsletter, which is an ongoing nuisance that we are dealing with thanks to cash donations.

There was also a lot of intrigue involving US President Donald Trump, Chinese President Xi Jinping and a Chinese Rothschild agent by the name of Guo Wengui. Guo has been working as a hatchet man for Xi Jinping helping him purge rivals inside the Chinese government, according to Vietnamese sources. The sources sent the following two pictures of Guo, one with Jacob de Rothschild and another with the Dalai Lama.


Guo is also a member of Donald Trump’s Mar-A-Lago resort in Florida where Trump and Xi recently had a summit meeting. Guo is now being sought by the Chinese government on bribery charges and is wanted by Interpol.

https://www.forbes.com/sites/nathanvardi/2017/04/25/chinese-fugitive-guo-wengui-lost-500-million-in-ubs-margin-call/amp/

Asian secret society sources reacted to this information with the following comment: “We want to create a new future and a new age. If the Rothschilds of the old structure agree with us, we believe in mutual prosperity but, we will never serve under them. If Xi Jinping works for the Rothschilds, then we will withdraw our support for him.” The society also reiterated its goal of a “one world” united in friendship.

The intrigue around Trump and Xi Jinping is connected to ongoing efforts to cash large denomination Chinese gold backed bonds, a DIA source says: “These Chinese bonds are the key to returning Chinas gold that has been held by the Federal Reserve since the 1930’s. The Chinese are using the prosperity funds to pay for the bonds which will then free up the vast stores of Chinese gold. If the cabal had gotten its hands on a large cache of these bonds it would be disastrous for creating a new currency backed with gold.”

The DIA source also notes that multiple attempts were made last week to release vast funds into the financial system.

“This all occurred in [Washington] DC while Trump met with the NSA and Pentagon while the CIA and FBI were trying to hold secret meetings all week in New Zealand with their counter parts in the crown countries, Britain, Canada, New Zealand and Australia; the NSA chief wasn’t invited to New Zealand and I don’t know if Navy intelligence was represented there or not,” the source says.

The DIA source notes there appear to be two competing factions at work at the highest level of Western power. The existence of these factions was also confirmed in news reports about the selection of a new head of the Knights of Malta. The Knights of Malta are, on the surface, a charitable organization but, since many top Western military and intelligence agency brass are knights, in reality it represents an apex of Western military power.

In any case news reports say the 72 year old Italian Giacomo Dalla Torre del Tempio di Sanguinetto was elected as an interim leader. The reports agree Dalla Torre was a compromise between competing British and German factions in the order.

“The order has been wracked by internal struggles over leadership involving Vatican intrigue and financial misdeeds, revealed by a recently leaked internal document showing Albrecht von Boeselager, the recently reinstated Grand Chancellor caught in a condom distribution scandal, was actively conspiring to depose [former Grandmaster Mathew] Festing, who stood in the way of an unethical financial deal that would’ve financially enriched von Boeselager and the Vatican,” according to Christine Niles, M.St. (Oxon.), J.D. • ChurchMilitant.

Knights of Malta elect new leader as Vatican seeks to bury feud
http://www.telegraph.co.uk

The Knights of Malta elected a new leader in Rome on Saturday in a bid to end a bitter internal feud that led to Pope Francis’ personal intervention in the ancient Catholic chivalric order.

So once again we see attempts to cash high denomination bonds going on at the highest levels of world power. It is a pretty good guess Zagami and his Satanic faction of the P2 Freemason lodge were operating behind these scenes here too.

Nuclear brinkmanship and attempts to start World War 3 are all linked to these efforts to cash these bonds and thus grab control of the world’s financial system.

No matter what Pentagon sources are saying they have seized control of US foreign policy from the Zionists and war-mongering Neo-cons. “The military takeover of Trump was completed when the military was given carte blanche and he was forced to tell 100 senators no war with North Korea or any state without a formal declaration of war, making this virtually impossible,” the sources say.

“[US Defense Secretary James] Mattis, [top general Joseph] Dunford summoned all Senators to the White House to tell them foreign policy has been outsourced to the military, not Israel, and to neutralize the [Jared] Kushner, [Paul] Wolfowitz, [David] Petraeus, H.R. McMaster neocon faction,” the sources continue. These sources say Dunford’s April 2nd trip to Iraq with Mossad agent Jared Kushner was to “keep the enemy closer.”

A former 2 star marine general has also been put in charge of the Secret Service “to ensure no assassination by the deep state or Mossad,” they say.

Also they say “Israeli whore UN ambassador Nikki Haley may have been blackmailed by her adultery, and may be reined in by [US Secretary of State] Rex [Tillerson] and removed from the NSC and Trump even hinted that she may be fired.”

Trump was also forced to back down from extorting money from South Korea under the pretext of deploying Thaad missiles because of Vatican opposition, they say. Furthermore, the sources note, the “Thaad missiles may not work as advertised.”

Pope Francis also publicly rebuked factions trying to start World War 3 by noting that a war between the West and North Korea (i.e. East and West) would “destroy everything.”

http://www.express.co.uk

 

The leader of the Catholic Church said “humanity today would not be able to withstand” a potential war between the two countries as “everything” could be …

Sources in the illuminati and other power centers agree and confirm that no efforts to start all out nuclear war will be allowed. In other words, this time, a revamp of international institutions will take place through negotiation, not through a world war. In these circumstances the White Dragon Society has offered its services to help find a win win compromise between East and West.

Planetary Situation Update by Cobra | The Portal

Planetary Situation Update by Cobra | The Portal

Clearing of the Chimera group continues. The Light forces are intensively clearing the head of the Yaldabaoth entity with all plasma anomaly and plasma toplet bombs and all plasma scalar technologies of the Veil. Realizing that they are going to lose, the Chimera have stepped up the plasma attacks on the key Lightworkers and Lightwarriors that are beyond brutal.

On Wednesday, the Light forces of the Galactic Confederation and the Ashtar Command have begun full force active removal of all plasma negativity near the surface of the planet. Every direct intervention of the Confederation forces inside the quarantine Earth provokes retaliation by the Chimera and they started first by trying to provoke nuclear exchange between USA and North Korea:
Although there was limited nuclear exchange on Wednesday in one of the underground bases, vaporizing a certain number of Dracos working for the Chimera, the Light forces do NOT allow nuclear exchange beyond the scope of mini nukes on the surface of the planet.
Realizing that they will not be allowed to go nuclear, the Chimera have resorted to trying to trigger a global war with conventional weapons.
Through the Archon and Jesuit network, they have pressured Trump to attack Syria:
Trump did this without approval from the Congress, which is a clear violation of the Constitution:
This military action helps the Archons in their attempt to retake Palmyra, a crucially important vortex point within the Syria pentagram:

The plan of the dark forces is to involve Turkey and Israel in the conflict, and expand it throughout the Middle East:
They are hoping of provoking Putin, but he is in contact with brilliant Pleiadian military strategists and most likely he will play it wisely, using diplomacy, international public opinion and military support to Syrian army rather that direct confrontation with the United States.
The international public is becoming more and more aware that the chemical gas attack in Idlib, which Trump used as a pretext to attack Syria, was a false flag:
Involving White Helmets:
Now Trump worshipers are finally beginning to sober up:
The Light forces will do whatever they can to limit the escalation of this military conflict as much as possible. Dragon sources have reconfirmed that this will be a short, intense but limited escalation. The Resistance is expecting the situation reaching its peak next Tuesday.
Goddess wants peace and peace it will be!
PS. Just as I wanted to post this update and the next update* which will be even more important, blogger went down for a few hours worldwide, delaying my post:
An interesting “coincidence”.

Ole Dammegard: “Statue of Liberty – NYC is next NWO synthetic terror False Flag”. (video)

Fascinating connecting of dots. If anyone finds the details in this information to be too disturbing, then first skip to 1:56:00 and listen to Ole Dammegard’s philosophy and coping strategies, which will help you to re-frame your perspective to one of empowerment, hope, and promise, as you realize that we actually are not alone or defeated. We can positively impact and improve our quality of life because we are experiencing a collective awakening. The more we love, support, and share knowledge with others, the more we can co-create a better reality, especially as we come to know that true power comes from within. We the People have the Power, but like Dorothy waiting to obtain the Ruby Slippers, we didn’t realize that we’ve had it all along. Well, now we do, so we can act accordingly and peacefully.

If we do not embody fear, they cannot control us. We are all in this together, and we far outnumber those who are misguided. Ole Dammegard is a wise and spiritual person intent on awakening us, so that we can free ourselves from the collective yoke of oppression that is running rampant at this time. But understand, all the revelations are coming out because the genie is already out of the bottle. Things appear worse only because they are already losing power, because power is shifting back to We the People. So there is a lot of Saber-rattling. Don’t believe the hype, don’t fall into F.E.A.R. –False Evidence Appearing Real. Focus on community, focus on the love. Protect your inner world, and it will serve you in the outer world, which is already shifting for the better, we just can’t see it yet.

Thank you Ole Dammegard for your tireless efforts. ~PB – Forever Unlimited

IMHO – #ThankYouObama

 It meant a lot to me to have an intelligent, articulate, thoughtful Constitutional Law Professor as our POTUS  for 8 years. He actually accomplished a lot, despite obstructionists and haters. I am sure he was made to do things that weighed heavy on his mind, make hard choices under threat of the Cabal, follow through with unpopular decisions that made him appear to be something other than the kind, Enlightened Visionary he is. More and more of us are seeing through that game.

Some day the Truth will be told, and a great healing will take place. Meanwhile, I will always remember his warmth, his sense of humor, his enduring strength in the face of  adversity, and his ability to rise above it all. #SoLongPresidentObama

Exclusive: Face-to-face with Edward Snowden in Moscow on Trump, Putin and dwindling hopes of a presidential pardon

“We should always make a distinction, that right and wrong is a very different standard than legal and illegal. The law is no substitute for morality.” ~Edward Snowden

Exclusive: Face-to-face with Edward Snowden in Moscow on Trump, Putin and dwindling hopes of a presidential pardon

Michael Isikoff

Chief Investigative Correspondent

In an exclusive interview in Russia with Yahoo Global News Anchor Katie Couric, Edward Snowden, the fugitive whistleblower who leaked information about U.S. surveillance activities, says he is “kind of encouraged” by the idea that Russian President Vladimir Putin might return him to the U.S. to stand trial because that would show the world he’s not a spy and Russia “doesn’t own me.”

But he also acknowledged he isn’t eager to return home to face U.S. justice, saying such a prospect “would be a threat to my liberty and to my life.”

Speaking for 90 minutes in a Moscow hotel room, Snowden — calm and completely unrepentant — also took new swipes at top U.S. intelligence officials, claiming they have accused him of damaging national security only because they were “embarrassed” by his disclosures of classified National Security Agency documents and worried about their “reputations.”

Those comments drew an angry rebuke Sunday from the Obama administration’s former top counterterrorism official. “Snowden is delusional,” said Matt Olsen, the former director of the National Counterterrorism Center, when read excerpts of the interview.

“It wasn’t so many years ago that people were saying, ‘This guy’s a Russian spy,’” said Snowden when asked by Couric how “nervous” he was about the possibility of losing his Russian sanctuary and being sent home to face criminal charges of theft of government property and violations of the Espionage Act.

“But countries don’t give up their spies. And if my recent criticism of the Russian government’s Internet policies, criticisms of their human rights record, have been so severe that even my greatest critics in the intelligence community are now saying, ‘Oh, yeah, he’s a liability, they wanna get him out of there,’ that’s a vindication.”

“Vindication of what?” Couric asked him.

“The fact that I’m independent, the fact that I have always worked on behalf of the United States, and the fact that Russia doesn’t own me,” Snowden replied. “In fact, the Russian government may see me as sort of a liability.”

Slideshow: Katie Couric interviews Edward Snowden: A look behind the scenes >>>

“So you wouldn’t mind if Putin extradited you and said, ‘Here you go, President Trump’?” asked Couric.

“Well, who wouldn’t?” Snowden answered. “I mean, that would obviously be something that would bother me.

That would obviously be something that would be a threat to my liberty and to my life. … What I’m proud of is the fact that every decision that I made I can defend.”

There is no evidence that Putin is considering such a move. But Snowden’s fate is very much uncertain: His comments come at a crucial moment for him, three and a half years after he deserted his job as an NSA contractor in Hawaii and fled, initially to Hong Kong, with a thumb drive of highly classified documents that he began disclosing to journalists.

Facing what is expected to be an unyielding hard line from the new Trump administration — Kansas Congressman Mike Pompeo, who is designated to be Trump’s CIA director, has called him a “traitor” who should be subject to the death sentence — Snowden and his allies in the United States are mounting an aggressive public campaign for a pardon by President Obama. “Time is running out,” reads one of the headlines on the campaign’s website, which also cites sympathetic comments by former Attorney General Eric Holder that Snowden “performed a public service” by triggering a debate about U.S. surveillance programs that led to reforms, including the end of the bulk collection of U.S. phone records by the NSA.

But Obama has made clear, as recently as last month, that he won’t consider a pardon until after Snowden returns and his case is adjudicated. And even Snowden acknowledged he’s not expecting one. “Well, I’m not counting on it,” he told Couric when asked about a pardon.

In the meantime, Snowden’s lawyers and defenders are privately seeking to open discussion of a possible plea bargain that would allow him to return home without facing a trial that could result in a long prison sentence. A letter to Obama and Attorney General Loretta Lynch from the Pardon Snowden campaign, signed by 15 former staff members of the Church Committee — which exposed abuses by the FBI and CIA in the 1970s — urged “leniency” for Snowden, while avoiding any mention of a pardon.

In the interview, Snowden seemed to draw a parallel between the information he leaked to journalists in 2013 and the findings of the committee (headed by the late Sen. Frank Church, D-Idaho), including how U.S. intelligence agencies “were secretly administering psychedelic drugs to college students to see the impacts they would have.”

Snowden went on: “They [the CIA] were engaging in assassination operations that were contrary to both American and international law, all kinds of crazy things. And these individuals who [signed the letter] are experts in what’s going on in intelligence at the classified level, who worked for the government, right? These aren’t sort of hippie reformers or anything like that. They argued that President Obama should seriously consider leniency in this case. He said that — or they said — that this case has caused far more benefits to American society, which I think is uncontroversial at this point, than any claimed harms for which we’ve never seen evidence.”

“If you had one minute to make your case face-to-face to President Obama, what would you say to convince him to pardon you?” Couric asked.

“I wouldn’t,” Snowden replied. “I would respectfully say to the president, ‘I understand you have an incredibly difficult job.’ No one wants to be a whistleblower. This is something that’s hard to do. It’s hard enough to stand up to a bully in your life, to your boss in the office, much less the combined might of the National Security Agency, the FBI and, you know, the apparatus of government.”

But any consideration of leniency for Snowden will run into fierce resistance from the U.S. intelligence community, which continues to view the former NSA contractor as an untrustworthy renegade who deceived his colleagues and endangered national security. This week, U.S. intelligence officials told Yahoo News, the office of the director of national intelligence is planning to declassify new portions of a highly critical 36-page report by the House Intelligence Committee that concluded Snowden was a “serial fabricator” who stole more than 1.5 million documents — 90 percent of which were military and defense secrets unrelated to the surveillance programs involving the privacy of U.S. citizens.

Snowden, for his part, casually dismissed claims that his disclosures to journalists did any damage to U.S. national security at all.

“Do you really think if the government can show somebody was hurt, a program was damaged, we’ve gone dark and can’t track dangerous people, they wouldn’t leak that criticism?” Snowden replied to Couric when asked about claims that the information he disclosed made it harder for U.S. agencies to monitor terrorists. “That wouldn’t be on the front page of the New York Times by the end of the day? I don’t think so. And I hope, maybe in time, you’ll think the same.”

Couric noted that even former Washington Post reporter Barton Gellman, who won a Pulitzer Prize for his reporting on NSA documents he received from Snowden, recently wrote: “I do not share the view of some of his fans that he did no damage at all.”

“Can you at least acknowledge that damage might have been done as a result of your disclosures?” Couric asked Snowden.

“I don’t agree with him in that regard,” he replied about Gellman’s comment. “What I will say is this. Whenever we’re talking about damage without evidence — this is an intentional effort to change the conversation from the concrete harms of these programs that violated the rights of every man, woman and child in the United States and people around the world… What Barton Gellman was acknowledging there was that, yes, it’s possible that officials could have been embarrassed by this. Reputations could have been damaged by this. And the intelligence community considers this to be a matter of national security. But I would argue there’s more to national security than reputations.”

Couric pressed: “But aren’t we talking, in fairness, more than simply reputations or being embarrassed? Virtually every U.S. security official, current and former, agrees that these disclosures made it more difficult to track the movements of organizations like ISIS and other terrorist groups.”

“I don’t agree with that,” Snowden responded. “Terrorists read the newspaper too. But I’ll tell you, terrorists already knew the NSA was coming after them. And what we saw in the newspaper wasn’t anything that they didn’t already understand. What was revealed in the newspaper was only a surprise to Americans and ordinary citizens.”

It was these comments that drew a sharp response from Olsen, the former Obama administration counterterrorism director, who has said he watched in 2013 as terrorist operatives grew “dark” and changed their communication methods after the Snowden disclosures.

“Regardless of his motivation, the fact is that his theft and release of an unprecedented amount of classified information have directly aided terrorists, Russian intelligence services, and other US adversaries,” Olsen wrote Sunday in an email to Yahoo News. “His actions have resulted in the loss of intelligence sources that have saved American lives around the world.”

Olsen added: “Snowden disclosed specific information about how the US collects intelligence, who we work with, and where we have operations. These are activities that are entirely lawful and most have nothing to do with the privacy of Americans. These facts are not disputed, except by Snowden himself and perhaps his Russian hosts, with whom he has shared intelligence.”

Snowden, for his part, denied sharing any information with the Russian intelligence services. He also denied the assertion by U.S. intelligence officials that he visited the Russian Consulate in Hong Kong before flying to Moscow — en route, he claims, to Ecuador, only to be “trapped” in Russia because the U.S. had revoked his passport.

Snowden’s comments about U.S. intelligence officials being “embarrassed” by his disclosures weren’t his only remarks in the interview that have triggered sharp responses. Former U.S. intelligence officials and national security experts sought to debunk his assertion, published by Yahoo News on Sunday, that former CIA Director David Petraeus had disclosed “far more highly classified information than I ever did.” Petraeus, who is said to be under consideration for secretary of state in the Trump administration, shared top-secret information with his lover and biographer. He was forced to resign and pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor charge of mishandling classified information.

“I am not in any way defending Petraeus, but I don’t think many intelligence experts would agree with this,” tweeted Tommy Vietor, a former national security spokesman for the Obama White House.

“Snowden is apparently taking a play from Trump’s book on how to reinvent facts,” Mark Zaid, a prominent national security lawyer, wrote in a Facebook posting. “It is absurd to claim Petraeus’ actions were worse or more damaging than his. Other than giving classified information to his mistress, which is totally unacceptable (even though she had a security clearance), the information was neither stolen nor compromised. Moreover, it was never published. To the contrary, Snowden stole highly classified information and DELIBERATELY compromised it by allowing the world, which includes our enemies, to see it.”

While insisting on his independence from Putin, Snowden seemed to echo the Russian government’s line regarding charges that its intelligence services hacked into Democratic Party campaign committees to influence the 2016 election. Moscow says the Obama administration has failed to give evidence for these allegations.

While conceding it was “possible” that the Russians had hacked the Democrats, Snowden added: “What bothers me about this kind of conversation is that the last time there was a significant hack that affected the United States that we believed had an association to a nation-state, it was the Sony hack, which we said North Korea was behind. The FBI immediately released evidence that they believed proved that they were behind that attack. We haven’t seen that here. And I think if we’re gonna have this conversation, it should be evidence-based.”

Snowden deflected most questions about his activities that led up to his flight to Moscow. He refused, for example, to identify any of the 10 NSA colleagues and superiors to whom he has said he raised concerns about U.S. surveillance before he began disclosing classified documents. Asked why he has been unable to produce a single email in which he raised such concerns, Snowden replied: “I’m not an email administrator” and “These aren’t things you put in writing at NSA. Saying, ‘I think the NSA is breaking the law. I think maybe this program is violating the Constitution’ is a career-ending move. And the people that I talked to first, my supervisor, said, ‘You know, hey, we can talk about this, but you shouldn’t rock the boat, and don’t write this down.’” (The only email that has surfaced that touches on surveillance practices, released by the NSA, shows that Snowden asked one of the agency’s lawyers in April 2013 to “clarify” an issue about legal authorities in an agency training manual, but expresses no concern about the NSA’s programs or potential infringements on privacy.)

“Why hasn’t anyone come forward, though?” Couric retorted. “Why haven’t you given any names to corroborate the fact that you did, in fact, try to go through the so-called proper channels?”

“Because if I did that, they would end the careers of these individuals, right? If these individuals spoke on their own without waiting for me, they would go to jail.”

Snowden — who has consistently asserted he shared documents only with “responsible” journalists who worked for publications he knew would carefully vet them — was also challenged on why he revealed highly classified information about NSA hacking in China to a journalist for the South China Morning Post while he was in Hong Kong. He defended the disclosure, saying the institutions being hacked by the NSA were not “valid intelligence targets” but civilian ones, such as hospitals and universities. He said for the first time that he didn’t know that the reporter to whom he gave this information, Lana Lam, worked for the Hong Kong-based South China Morning Post (although she was identified as one of the paper’s correspondents on its website); he says he understood she was a “freelancer” from Australia.

“So you didn’t even know that it was going to be in a newspaper in China?” Couric asked him.

“I knew it would be in a newspaper,” he said. “I didn’t know what newspaper. This was not my concern.”

Brian Rhoads, managing editor of the South China Morning Post, said in an email to Yahoo News Monday that the paper’s reporter, Lam, “made clear her status and who she was working for” when she interviewed Snowden in Hong Kong. “She was a full-time staff member of the South China Morning Post at the time, and represented herself as full-time staff throughout the interview process. We asked Snowden and the lawyers follow up questions and communicated with them about dates we were planning publication of the material.” Rhoads also emphasized that the South China Morning Post is an independent publication that “is not controlled by China” and does not share information with the country’s government.

Snowden, who lives with his longtime girlfriend, Lindsay Mills, in a Moscow apartment, and says he walks freely throughout the city unmolested and for the most part unrecognized, was asked by Couric at one point what he misses most about the United States.

“Family, of course,” he replied. “That’s always the thing. You know, they can come and see me, but you’ve got all these travel arrangements and logistics, you’ve got to go on an airplane ride. Who doesn’t miss that?”

“When you look back at the last three years, was it worth it?” Couric asked. “Absolutely. I would do it again.”

“No regrets?”

“No regrets at all.”
