Reality Leigh Winner Charged With Leaking NSA “Top-Secret” Report: So, To Get Off…She Uses “Racism” & Tells Her Family… “I’m Gonna Play The “White Card.” Well, God Says… “Let’s See How That Works Out For You.”

On Monday, June 5, 2017, an intelligence contractor,  Reality Leigh Winner, was charged, under the Espionage Act, with leaking a classified intelligence May 5, 2017 report, from the National Security Agency (NSA), to The Intercept, an online news outlet.   The NSA classified this allegedly leaked report as “top-secret.”  In an article published on June 5, 2017, The Intercept says the classified report reveals that… “RUSSIAN MILITARY INTELLIGENCE executed a cyberattack on at least one U.S. voting software supplier and sent spear-phishing emails to more than 100 local election officials just days before last November’s presidential election…”  So, this is one of the ways that Russia did interfere with our 2016 Presidential Election.  Bastards!!!  O.k… The “AFFIDAVIT IN SUPPORT OF APPLICATION FOR ARREST WARRANT” filed on June 5, 2017, by the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) states… “(paragraph #2) Your affiant is currently investigating the activities of REALITY LEIGH WINNER (“WINNER”), whom your affiant believes willfully retained and transmitted classified national defense information to a person not entitled to receive it in violation of 18 U.S.C. § 793(e). These acts occurred in Augusta, Georgia, which is located within the Southern District of Georgia. Your affiant submits this complaint in support of the arrest of WINNER. (paragraph #11) WINNER is a contractor with Pluribus International Corporation assigned to a U.S. Government Agency facility in Georgia. She has been employed at the facility since on or about February 13, 2017, and has held a Top Secret clearance during that time. As set forth in further detail below, on or about May 9, 2017, WINNER printed and improperly removed classified intelligence reporting, which contained classified national defense information and was dated on or about May 5, 2017 (the “intelligence reporting”) from an Intelligence Community Agency (the “U.S. Government Agency”) and unlawfully retained it. Approximately a few days later, WINNER then unlawfully transmitted the intelligence reporting to an online news outlet (the “News Outlet”) (paragraph #15) On June 3, 2017, your affiant spoke to WINNER at her home in Augusta, Georgia. During that conversation, WINNER admitted intentionally identifying and printing the classified intelligence reporting at issue despite not having a “need to know,” and with knowledge that the intelligence reporting was classified. WINNER further admitted removing the classified intelligence reporting from her office space, retaining it, and mailing it from Augusta, Georgia, to the News Outlet, which she knew was not authorized to receive or possess the documents. WINNER further acknowledged that she was aware of the contents of the intelligence reporting and that she knew the contents of the reporting could be used to the injury of the United States and to the advantage of a foreign nation.”  O.k… So, no doubt about it…this is some serious shit.   Reality Winner is looking at up to ten (10) years in prison if she’s convicted under the Espionage Act.   Winner went for  a detention hearing on Thursday, June 8, 2017, before U.S. Magistrate Judge Brian K. Epps in Augusta, Georgia, where she pled… “not guilty” to one count of “willful retention and transmission of national defense information.” According to a 6/8/17 article by The Augusta Chronicle… “At the conclusion of a nearly three-hour hearing, Magistrate Judge Brian K. Epps ruled in favor of detention, saying Winner could pose a danger to the entire country because of the government’s national security secret she might have shared already and the secrets she might be harboring in her head.”  In other words… “BOND DENIED!”  Her ass is still sitting in jail. Now… What do we know about this person we call…Reality Leigh Winner??? Let’s see…   She is 25 years old.    CNN reported on June 7, 2017… “Reality Winner was a Texas-raised linguist, yoga instructor and animal lover who regularly took to social media to blast President Donald TrumpWinner served in the Air Force from December 2010 to 2016. Her rank was senior airman, and her last duty title was cryptologic language analyst, according to the Air Force. She provided support to missions and received the Air Force Commendation Medal in 2016.  She was raised in Kingsville, Texas, and served in the Air Force in Columbia, Maryland.”   O.k… Now, let’s back up for just a moment.   Let’s go back to the detention hearing & check out what federal prosecutors said about Ms. Winner…on Thursday.   O.k…  When someone is being held in detention…we know their in some kind of jail setting.   When you are in jail…your phone calls are monitored & recorded.   So, when Reality Winner spoke with her family members from jail…her conversations were being recorded.   The federal prosecutors listened to Winner’s conversations & relayed some of that information to Judge Epps at the detention hearing.   The Huffington Post, reported on 6/8/2017,  that, at the detention hearing, the federal prosecutors allege that during a call from jail, Winner plotted with her mother to highlight her innocent, peaceful appearance in court.   On 6/9/17,  The Daily Wire reported that… “On Thursday, Assistant U.S. Attorney Jennifer Solari revealed in an Atlanta, Georgia court that Winner told her sister via a jailhouse phone: “I’m going to play that card being pretty, white and cute, braid my hair and cry and all.” O.k. guys…  Now, we are getting somewhere.    Did you pay attention to what I just said???   I’ll repeat it this way… Reality Leigh Winner, who has been charged with leaking “top-secret” information under the United States Espionage Act…told her sister that she was going to play up those things that she thinks could help her “beat this rap.”  And, what are those things she thinks could help her???  From her perspective…those things include… “Being pretty”… “Being White” … “Being Cute.”   O.k…  For the record, I don’t give a shit about that girl thinking she is pretty or cute.  That’s not my concern.   My concern for this discussion is the “being White” factor that she thinks…could help her here.   Now, let’s dig a little deeper into this thing.   My question is this…  Why does she think her being “White” is a factor up for consideration in these very serious criminal matters???   WHY?  WHY? WHY?  Let me tell you why…  Because we are in this country we call…the United States of America.    O.k… Jesus, said… “In all of your seeking, you must seek understanding.” (Proverbs 4:7) So…   First, we must deal with history in order to seek understanding of Reality Winner’s mindset.   We must deal with our history in trying to understand how Reality Winner came to think this way about her current circumstances???   Well, unless you have been asleep like “Rip Van Winkle”…you should have some knowledge about the racist past & present of the United States.     In his writing, The Historical Origins and Development of Racism,  George M. Frederickson, writes… “Racism exists when one ethnic group or historical collectivity dominates, excludes, or seeks to eliminate another on the basis of differences that it believes are hereditary and unalterable.” Mr. Frederickson in  his ground breaking work White Supremacy: A Comparative Study of American and South African History, was a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize.  O.k… We clearly saw racism in existence with the White settlers interaction with the Natives.  (many Indians don’t like being considered “American” so that is why I choose not to use that term in connection with the term “Native”)  White folk saw Natives as “savages.”   White folk came here & thought to themselves… “These people have no rights we have to recognize.” Why??? Because White folk thought themselves superior to…better than…the Natives. So, White folk created “man-made” laws…to justify stealing from Natives.   To justify…killing Natives.   White folk, even according to the language of their own laws, illegally broke treaty after treaty with Natives.  “But, what does that matter”…the White man thinks.   “We are White…so we can do whatever we want to these less than human…beings…we call Native Americans.”  You see… It is this type of racist thinking that motivated White folk to put small pox in blankets given to Natives…for the purpose of “genocide.”  But, I thank “God” & “God” alone…for blocking White folks attempt to eliminate Natives completely from these lands.   You see…   I know that only God can stop…devils.  And, shit…just look at American textbooks.    How in the hell could Christopher Columbus discover land…when people were ALREADY??? there??? And, to continue “adding insult to injury” to Natives, we still have a holiday celebrating Christopher Columbus (second Monday in October).   O.k… Now, don’t kid yourself.  Millions of White folk in this country…still today have these same racist ass mindsets about Natives, Black folk & Hispanics.   Why do I say this???  Donald Trump got 62,979,879 (46.1%) votes on November 8, 2017.  So, he received almost 63 millions votes.  That shit is recent history…in my book.   Now…   While I don’t put every one that voted for Trump in the same “basket of deplorables” that Hillary Clinton carried, I will say this…   Not hundreds…  Not Thousands…  But, Millions of them do go along with Trump’s “Hitleresque” & “racist” attitudes towards people of color.  Meaning???  They, too, wish that the clock was turned back to what they view as the “good old days.”  You know…  The “good old days” where White folk were legally (only under man’s law) able to enslave & oppress…other human beings.  O.k… On March 6, 1857, Chief Justice Roger Taney, in the U.S. Supreme Court’s Dred Scott v. Sanford decision, espoused the same sentiment of Trump and millions of his supporters when he said… “The words “people of the United States” and “citizens” are synonymous terms, and mean the same thing. They both describe the political body who … form the sovereignty, and who hold the power and conduct the Government through their representatives…. The question before us is, whether the class of persons described in the plea in abatement [people of African ancestry] compose a portion of this people, and are constituent members of this sovereignty? We think they are not, and that they are not included, and were not intended to be included, under the word “citizens” in the Constitution, and can therefore claim none of the rights and privileges which that instrument provides for and secures to citizens of the United States. On the contrary, they were at that time considered as a subordinate and inferior class of beings, who had been subjugated by the dominant race, and, whether emancipated or not, yet remained subject to their authority, and had no rights or privileges but such as those who held the power and the Government might choose to grant them.”  Remember…   The Dred Scott case came about because Dred Scott, an enslaved African-American, sued for his freedom. So… Please understand…   The racism that beat so strongly through the heart of Chief Justice Taney isn’t some anomaly.  Of course not!  That shit is just as prevalent today, as then.   Racism is embedded within the fabric of the              “America.”  O.k…  Hold up…  Now, I know you heard about what happened to LeBron James on May 31, 2017???  Someone spray painted the word “nigger” on the front gate of James’ home in the Brentwood neighborhood in Los Angeles.   LeBron responded by saying this… “As I sit here on the eve of one of the greatest sporting events that we have in sports, race and what’s going on comes again.  On my behalf and my family’s behalf, but I look at it as this – if this is [going to] shed light to continue to keep the conversation going on my behalf, then I’m OK with it. My family is safe, they’re safe, and that’s the most important [thing].  But it just goes to show that racism will always be a part of the world, a part of America.  Hate in America, especially for African Americans, is living every day. Even though it’s concealed most of the time – we know people hide their faces and will say things about you when they see you, they smile on your face, – it’s alive every single day.  I think back to Emmett Till’s mom actually, and the reason that she had an open casket is because she wanted to show the world what her son went through as far as a hate crime and being black in America.  No matter how much money you have, no matter how famous you are, no matter how many people admire you – being black in America is tough.  We got a long way to go for us as a society and for us as African Americans until we feel equal in America.  But my family is safe, and that’s what is important.” O.k… Let’s look at Reality Winner’s mindset through this kaleidoscope.   You have this young White woman who knows she lives in a racist country.   Why do I say this??? Because she would not be saying she is going to use her “whiteness” to avoid jail time, if she did not think there is a difference in punishment in this country…based on race.   What is also revealed about her statement is this…   She is, at the least, complicit…in the systemic racism of this country.  She is…at the worst…also a racist.   What comes to mind…for you???   But, make no mistake about it.  Either…makes her an evil operative. O.k… It is very clear to me that Reality Winner was not operating from a heart motivated by God.   A heart motivated by God…would be working to bring down a racist system.   But… Instead of “crying out” about the systemic racism in this country, this wench is talking about “crying” & using her “whiteness” to work the “racist system” for her selfish motives.   To God, there is no difference between her & any bounty hunter…who operated during the times of slavery.  She is trying to use the misfortune of others (minorities who receive the brunt of racism)…to exercise some sick-ass privilege…she views herself as having.   So, she says to herself, “I’ll play the White card to stay out of jail.”  So, she says to herself, “I may be guilty, but my whiteness will set me free.”  Basically, in plain words, she is saying… “Because I’m White, the law should not apply to me.”  To me, those are the comments of a sick…racist individual, who is going to get what her hand calls for.   You see… While she may be White, she has made a fatal miscalculation.  The political environment is so charged right now…Democrats will too, come down hard against her…for leaking classified information.  So, Democrats will not becoming to her rescue…be she White, or not.  And…   Her whiteness will definitely not save her with Republicans because of her negative views about Donald Trump.  Trump’s administration is going to try and make an example of her because she leaked information about Russia’s interference in the November 2016 election.  Trump is kissing Russia’s ass…right now. So,  Trump sees her as his enemy.  In other words, Trump is going to try & make “Winner”…a “loser.” You see…  This is what happens in a “racist” society.  It’s not just Black folk, Natives & Hispanics and other people of color who are harmed by such an evil system.   It also creates…sick ass delusions in White folk’s head, that they are “ACTUALLY” privileged…& better.   And, it is these types of delusions that create the scenario…that Reality Winner currently finds herself dealing with.   And, it’s a damn shame!   This young woman has basically set herself up to be incarcerated, for quite some time… because she truly believed her “whiteness” would save her.  And…  That’s some sick ass shit.  She doesn’t understand God’s truth.  The truth that…in God’s sight, there is no privilege for White folk…based on their whiteness.   And, since He is the one in charge…  And…   Because she acted with such evil intent, all the way around, (by the stealing of information & the use of racism to get away with it)…I would dare say, that Winner…will be wearing “orange” for quite some time.
