“And there is no doubt that Mr. Snowden’s leaks triggered a much more rapid, passionate response than would have been the case if I had simply appointed the review board to go through and I had sat down with Congress and we had worked this thing through. It would have been less exciting. It would not have generated as much press. I actually think we would have gotten to the same place, and we would have done so without putting at risk our national security and some very vital ways that we are able to get intelligence that we need to secure the country.”
“[W]e’re forming a high-level group of outside experts to review our entire intelligence and communications technologies. We now have to unravel terrorist plots by finding a needle in the haystack of global telecommunications. And meanwhile technology has given governments – including our own – unprecedented capability to monitor communications.”
“And they’ll consider how we can maintain the trust of the people, how we can make sure that there absolutely is no abuse in terms of how these surveillance technologies are used, ask how surveillance impacts our foreign policy – particularly in an age when more and more information is becoming public. And, they will provide an interim report in 60 days and a final report by the end of the year, so we can move forward with a better understanding of how these programs impact our security, our privacy, and our foreign policy.”
“So this is how we’re going to resolve our differences in the United States – through vigorous public debate, guided by our Constitution with reverence for our history as a nation of laws, and with respect for the facts.”
- Statements of President Barack Hussein Obama at press conference Aug. 9, 2013.
Having been caught with his hand in the NSA cookie jar, the “spymaster in chief,” Barack Hussein Obama, shamelessly and deceitfully used his press conference of last Friday to effectively appear to embrace the so-called leaks of whistleblower Edward Snowden – who he obviously would like to see disappear – and conjure up what is not only an opportunistic but also a faux review of the spook agency’s surveillance on over 300 million Americans.
And, after having committed a number of “phony scandals” from Fast and Furious, to Benghazi-gate, to Navy SEAL-gate, to IRS-gate, to Birth Certificate/Eligibility-gate, to now NSA-gate, all of a sudden the neo-national socialist Führer develops a newfound appreciation for the rule of law and respect for our Constitution. How convenient given the boiling caldron of criticism, even from some elements of the left, that Obama now finds himself. In effect, Obama’s subterfuge is nothing more than a clever ruse, taking a page from Hitler prior to his rise to power, to fool the citizenry that it is safe at the hands of his corrupt administration.
Just a week or so earlier, Obama had his “yes men” at the New York Times pen a ridiculous article that the NSA does not generally share its metadata from the cell phones and Internet usage of ordinary Americans with other government agencies such as the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Internal Revenue Service. Principally written by Eric Lichtblau, the reporter who first uncovered former President George W. Bush’s executive order to allow for warrantless wiretaps that bypassed the national security court, this column, obviously generated by the Obama administration, was yet another attempt to take the heat off of this ultra-leftist president’s back.
Ironically though, by raising the defenses of “phony scandals” and his alleged attempts to reform “intelligence” gathering by the NSA, and create more so-called safeguards for the American people, Obama underscores the hard reality that he has been using and intends to continue using our intelligence services to obtain information to coerce and blackmail the citizenry into pliant submission.
Indeed, during the Clinton years, while Bill and Hillary vociferously disclaimed any role in the deaths of more than 80 key witnesses and others with some involvement in their myriad of scandals, they were happy to have their henchmen leave a list of these dead persons on the office chairs of inconveniently “alive” witnesses like Linda Tripp and other White House whistleblowers, who had the goods on their various crimes. On a smaller scale than Obama’s unbridled massive abuse of government power, this was a not-too-subtle attempt to intimidate and silence them from spilling the beans and providing evidence to send the Clintons to prison, which is where they belong. Outrageously, today, 13 years since the Clintons left the White House, we, the more than 300 million Americans whose confidential communications have been violated by this Muslim megalomaniac, are now the hands-on witnesses of Obama’s attempt to rule and transform the nation as he alone sees fit – by fear. And, we, the American people, are in danger.
But despite last Friday’s dog-and-pony show, We the People increasingly can no longer be fooled.
A growing number of patriots – white and black – people of faith, Christians, Jews and concerned citizens are in the process of waking up from their long slumber of the last five years in particular. We are no longer willing to be made to feel ashamed of our heritage and who we are and are thus losing our sense of guilt that Obama and his ilk have tried to instill upon us, and are preparing to legally fight back.
In this regard, perhaps it was Obama’s bigoted remarks after the George Zimmerman trial – where he effectively rejected the jury’s verdict of not guilty with a statement that he could have been Trayvon Martin 35 years ago – that truly unmasked his hateful intentions to make “whitey” and the others pay back “his people” for prior discrimination. And, indeed, this is what is at the heart of NSA-gate; a means to keep whitey and whitey’s allies down as Obama dismantles and deconstructs the nation by having them pay their “fair share” in reparations.
Given these stakes and Obama’s master plan, it is no wonder that the privacy and intimate communications of all of us are now in government hands. Obama and his comrades have made it clear that if we object to and fight against his agenda, we will then pay the price, no matter what disingenuous and deceptive propaganda he attempts to spew to the contrary to lull us again into submission.
