Obama’s Continuing Constitutional Assault

March 26, 2014 by  

Obama’s Continuing Constitutional Assault

Now even the state’s chief propaganda organ notes the Barack Obama regime is the greatest threat to press freedom in this generation. New York Times reporter James Risen, under attack to testify and disclose a source in the trial of a former CIA officer, made this claim in a conference of journalists, communication and government professionals on Friday.

Risen said, “The Administration wants to ‘narrow the field of national security reporting to create path for accepted reporting.’ Any journalist who exceeds those parameters ‘will be punished,’” according to a report by the Poynter Institute on

Global press organizations have noticed, too. We reported last month that the U.S. had fallen to 46th place on Reporters Without Borders’ World Press Freedom Index for 2014. And that was before we learned the FCC intended to place “monitors” in newsrooms across the country.

Reporters themselves are as much to blame as the Obama regime. They have accepted the regime’s ground rules for cooperation and have even submitted their articles for approval by the regime.

But it’s not just the 1st Amendment the Obama regime is assaulting. The entire Constitution is dying a death by thousands of paper cuts.

In addition to its targeting of national security reporting, the regime is targeting whistleblowers at an unprecedented rate. That, and National Security Agency and CIA snooping of reporters’ emails and telephone calls has had a chilling effect on sources.

The regime has targeted alternative media with a band of cyber warriors tasked with disrupting news sites and blogs “to make postings through proxy servers and effectively use alternate identities and multiple e-mail addresses. Their purpose is to spread disinformation, not truth.” By the way, we have identified a handful of these operatives at work on Personal Liberty Digest™.

The 2nd Amendment is under constant assault from the regime and its proxies. Just last week, Senator Dianne Feinstein began another attempt at passing a ban on so-called “assault weapons.”

The 4th Amendment died under George W. Bush, but Obama set the carcass on fire and then spit on it with his expansion of powers of the Department of Homeland Security and stepped-up spying by the NSA, CIA, FBI and others.

Obama’s assaults on the 5th and 6th Amendments through drone attacks and racist Attorney General Eric Holder’s Department of (In)Justice selective prosecutions are relentless.

Obama has bypassed Congress and destroyed the separation of powers through his use of executive orders and regulations enacted through the alphabet soup regulatory agencies. The passage of Obamacare itself, called a tax by the Supreme Court, violated Article I, Section 7.

Yes, the Obama regime is the greatest threat to the 1st Amendment — and the entire Constitution — in a generation, at least. But the undocumented usurper currently occupying the people’s house is probably even more dangerous to liberty than was Franklin Delano Roosevelt and maybe even as dangerous as was Abraham Lincoln. He’s certainly created a divide almost as wide as Lincoln created.

Note from the Editor: Under the Obama Administration, the NSA, the IRS, and the State and Justice departments are blatantly stepping on Americans’ privacy—and these are just the breaches we’re aware of.
