The embarrassing NSA leaks that revealed that pretty much every American is being treated as a terrorist confirm a few things about liberalism and Obama: you can’t trust either one any more than you could trust Stalinism.
Allow me to go back to something I said way, way back in 2010 as we were greeted with the outrage of Obama’s way of administering “security” by refusing to focus on actual terrorists and instead treat EVERYBODY like a terrorist:
Common sense is like rocket science to moral idiots. And Barry Hussein, Eric Holder, Janet Napolitano and everyone else he’s brought on board is a genuine moral idiot.
Liberals self-righteously tell us that profiling Muslims by race would be un-American. Because “American” to them means that we must instead treat EVERYONE like a terrorist. A flight attendant with a prosthetic breast is as much a security threat as a 23 year-old Muslim male just arriving from Yemen. To single anyone out for scrutiny would make sense, and we won’t have that as long as Barry Hussein is our emperor. Because in Obama’s liberal America we stand like sheep in front of porno-scanners that take naked pictures of us, and then we stand like sheep while we’re groped by professional government gropers.
They don’t want to violate anybody’s rights. Far better to violate EVERYBODY’S rights instead.
Remember the ecstatic Newsweek headline, “We Are All Socialists Now”??? Socialism invariably ends up treating the people like the enemy. Think Union of Soviet Socialist Republics, with their Berlin Wall and all the machine gun emplacements to gun down anyone trying to get out.
If you don’t think it’s bad enough now as it is, the Tits and Ass Agency wants to unionize, which would make them even more intrusive and impervious than they already are.
“You were given the choice between war and dishonor. You chose dishonor and you will have war” — Winston Churchill, commenting on Neville Chamberlain’s “peace in our time” signing of the Munich Agreement with Hitler
That’s what we did when we voted for Obama: we chose dishonor and we chose a war we could not win because we are too stupid to even fight the real enemy.
So, here we are, a few years later. And what is Obama doing? He’s treating every single American like a terrorist and eavesdropping on over a billion American conversations every single day.
When I’m right, you can always count on me to be right.
The NSA leaks merely prove that everything I said about Obama’s policy of refusing to profile the people and groups most likely to be terrorists necessitated treating every single American like a terrorist instead.
Don’t be angry. You voted for it, you dumbass. You voted for Obama. You voted to be treated like a terrorist and have all of your calls and internet traffic monitored. You wouldn’t have it any other way.
Now that we’ve dealt with this NSA crap in general, let’s focus on an important specific that Obama loves to assure us: don’t worry, your rights are being protected, because, after all, judges have to approve every single one of these gross violations of your 4th Amendment rights.
Well, there are a couple of things wrong with that. First of all, there’s this from a former FISA court judge:
Robertson told a federal oversight board that Congress’ 2008 reform meant that “the court is now approving programmatic surveillance,” offering that “I don’t think that is a judicial function.”
Robertson also questioned whether the NSA’s global surveillance programs court should be given its legal basis by a court that “has turned into something like an administrative agency,” adding that the secret court is flawed because only the government’s side is heard. [...]
Robertson said he was ‘‘frankly stunned’’ by a recent Times report that FISA court rulings had created a new body of law broadening the ability of the NSA to use its surveillance programs to target not only terrorists but suspects in cases involving espionage, cyberattacks and weapons of mass destruction.
Liberals LOVE big “government programs,” and they are ALL ABOUT “programmatic” crap. I mean, if they didn’t we never would have had the unmitigated disaster that ObamaCare has turned out to be (just like we SAID it would be, btw).
But this leaves out something even more fundamental. It leaves out how treacherous, how blatantly dishonest Barack Obama and his thug administration has turned out to be.
Let’s remember Eric Holder, Obama’s “Injustice Department” lawthug was when he found a way to violate the 1st Amendment and go after a Fox News journalist.
What did Holder do? He went to a judge to get a warrant to snoop on James Rosen. The first judge said, “You can’t do that. That would be fascist and unconstitutional.” So Holder went to a second judge. And the second judge said, “You can’t do that. You’d be a Nazi to do something like that.” And so Holder went to a third judge.
The third judge approved it.
Let’s say that he refused to. Do you honestly think Holder would have said, “Well, three strikes and I’m out”??? No way, Jose. He would have kept on judge-shopping until he found a judge who would sign off for him.
Now, the warrant that that judge signed off on was FILLED with lies that alleged that Rosen was basically a terrorist who was just about to flee the country and there was abundant evidence of his crimes. None of that was true. Basically, Holder lied like the rabid weasel that he is to get a warrant approved. And then he cited the fact that he had lied to the judge as his rationale for why he was not lying to Congress when he said, “In regard to potential prosecution of the press for the disclosure of material. This is not something I’ve ever been involved in, heard of, or would think would be wise policy.” He literally cited the fact that he had lied to a federal judge (the warrant Holder signed off on very much indicated that the FBI planned to prosecute James Rosen) as his grounds for arguing that he had not lied to Congress.
Therein lies your problem with the whole “judge” thing. An awful lot of judges are, to put it politely, turds. And finding a judge who will do what you want is kind of like walking blindfolded through a small yard inhabited by a dozen Rottweilers. It won’t take you very long before you miraculously end up “finding” a big giant turd. Only Eric Holder wasn’t blindfolded: he was actively TRYING to find a turd.
So pardon me for not being very reassured that Obama has to go before a judge (or a second judge, or a third judge) to get his fascism approved.
We now know for a FACT that Obama has recklessly and tyrannically abused government power. He has used the IRS, the FBI, the EPA and other out-of-control government agencies to punish his political opponents. And in fact, he’s done it way, WAY beyond the level to which the last president to try that kind of crap (that would be Nixon) ever came CLOSE to trying.
Obama is a power-mad child with a massive bureaucracy to use as toys and an entire nation to punish if he doesn’t get his way. And this crap is out of control.
Hypocrite liberals would have been hysterically screaming in the streets if it had been revealed that Bush had been pulling a TENTH of this crap. But Obama is doing it, so it’s okay.
It aint okay.
