Warning: Obama’s Secret Police Know You Are Reading This

Warning: Obama’s Secret Police Know You Are Reading This

“The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing.” — Edmund Burke

Do you feel safer knowing President Barack Obama’s Secret Police — whoops, I mean his National Security Agency (NSA) — are monitoring your communications and everything you read on the Internet, including these very words? Certainly, you are supposed to feel safer. Just ask almost anyone in the mainstream media, as well as most Democrats and even Republicans in Congress (the very members we trust to protect our liberties). They are busy acquiescing to Obama’s tyranny all in the name of national security.

It seems the Obama-media and members of Congress have not read a word of history. They seem to have never heard of a democratically elected leader who enslaved Europe and started a war that killed 60 million people while his government, police and justice system turned a blind eye to every excess. All they have to do is a Google search for “Adolf Hitler.” Maybe they don’t do that because it would be a record of subversive inquiries.

James Bamford writes in The Shadow Factory: The Ultra-Secret NSA from 9/11 to the Eavesdropping on America: “There is now the capacity to make tyranny total in America.”

Yet hardly anybody seems to care, other than Libertarians like former Congressman Ron Paul, who said the NSA revelations are “a predictable result of a government that continues to erode our liberties while promising some glimmering hope of security.”

I was naïve enough to believe that others, like Senator Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.), would be outraged by the Obama Administration’s attack on the 1st and 4th Amendments. Graham says he is not sure who is entitled to 1st Amendment rights. It could be that Personal Liberty Digest and the people who comment on the columns and stories don’t have guaranteed protection.

“Who is a journalist is a question we need to ask ourselves,” Graham said. “Is any blogger out there saying anything — do they deserve 1st Amendment protection? These are the issues of our times.”

The French Trusted Hitler

Graham said last week he is unconcerned that the Obama Administration has his Verizon phone records because he’s not “talking to terrorists.”

Graham told FOX News: “I am glad the NSA is trying to find out what terrorists are up to overseas and inside the country.”

The host said he was a Verizon subscriber and was, therefore, being tracked by the federal government. Graham weighed:

“I’m a Verizon customer. I don’t mind Verizon turning over records to the government if the government is going to make sure that they try to match up a known terrorist phone with somebody in the United States,” he said.

“I don’t think you’re talking to terrorists, I know you’re not, I know I’m not, so we don’t have anything to worry about,” Graham said. “I’m glad the activity’s going on, but it is limited to tracking people who are suspected to be terrorists and who they may be talking to.”


 
Graham also admitted that it wasn’t until the news broke about the NSA the day before that he knew anything about what the top secret agency was doing. I am glad Graham is sure they aren’t doing anything bad. And I am really glad Graham has looked into his crystal ball and can predict that the Obama Administration will never abuse power.

It is amazing that our elected representatives will allow Obama to operate his spy network without objection or restraint. As for me, I wouldn’t have trusted Mother Teresa with that much authority. One thing is certain, Germans embraced Hitler in part because he was so damn charismatic. They also embraced him because they feared people like the French, who in the 1930s were the bugaboo for millions of Germans. It turned out that Germany had a lot more to fear from the likes of Hitler, Heinrich Himmler and the Gestapo than it did from the French.

The insiders really knew from the very start who Hitler was. A man good with words was German Propaganda Minister Joseph Goebbels, who wrote:

In 1933, a French premier ought to have said (and if I had been the French premier, I would have said it): “The new Reich Chancellor is the man who wrote Mein Kampf, which says this and that. This man cannot be tolerated in our vicinity. Either he disappears or we march!” But they didn’t do it.

Obama’s Power-Play Based On Fear

But idiots abound on the left. On “Real Time,” Bill Maher said he doesn’t mind that the NSA has these powers because he trusts Obama. He then added that he wouldn’t want to see such powers in the hands of a Republican President. Maher added we have to accept sweeping powers by Obama or a future President because terrorists want to use “nukes.” Yes, friends, the nuke argument! Maher seems to believe if we don’t allow Obama these dictatorial powers an American city is going to be incinerated next week.

Most in Congress, including all our trusted Republicans, are espousing what Maher is saying. It is simple: If we resist the government, all hell will break loose. Or as Dr. Peter Venkman (Bill Murray) declares in the movie “Ghostbusters”: “Human sacrifice, dogs and cats living together… mass hysteria!”

There’s all this fear over Muslim fanatics whose most advanced weapon is an AK-47 and whose typical mode of transportation is a horse or camel.

The liberals are terrible oddsmakers. There is a greater chance of getting struck by lightning than of getting maimed or killed by a terrorist. And what are the chances that the Federal government will not abuse its secret spy apparatus? Perhaps the odds are 10-to-1. If you are an optimist, you might place them at 100-to-1. That is a pretty big gamble.

All Must Be OK, Because Obama Tell Us So

I am convinced that Obama is not interested in protecting America from terrorists. Glenn Greenwald, the reporter for The Guardian who broke the NSA story, thinks the same. He told Piers Morgan on CNN:

“There is a massive apparatus within the United States government that with complete secrecy has been building this enormous structure that has only one goal, and that is to destroy privacy and anonymity, not just in the United States but around the world.

“It’s well past time that we have a debate about whether that’s the kind of country and world in which we want to live. We haven’t had that debate because it’s all done in secrecy and the Obama Administration has been very aggressive about bullying and threatening anybody who thinks about exposing it or writing about it or even doing journalism about it. It’s well past time that that come to an end.”

Greenwald claims that terrorists who represent a threat to Americans have known for years that electronic traffic is being monitored. That is why they use couriers.

On Friday, Obama explained that there is no need to worry or fuss and that our freedoms are being protected because his heart is in the right place.

“[My] observation is, is that the people who are involved in America’s national security, they take this work very seriously,” Obama said. “They cherish our Constitution. The last thing they’d be doing is taking programs like this to listen to people’s phone calls.”

I don’t know about you, but somehow Obama’s rhetoric didn’t comfort me, especially when he added: “[I]n the abstract, you can complain about Big Brother and how this is a potential, you know — you know, program run amok. But when you actually look at the details, I think we’ve struck the right balance.”

 
Isn’t the devil in the details? And didn’t Obama say he is a Christian and went to Columbia University? And in 2003, he declared that the Patriot Act was “shoddy and dangerous” and something he would help dispose of if he was elected to the U.S Senate.

We can always cross our fingers and really hope that this time Obama is telling the truth. Or we can face the grim reality that William Pitt, the British prime minster of the late 18th century, understood:  “Unlimited power is apt to corrupt the minds of those who possess it.”

Obama doesn’t have unlimited power yet, but he is working on it.

Yours in good times and bad,

    As a veteran I’ve known that the government gets away with stuff that would put almost any civilian in jail for a long time. But the general public just doesn’t seem to care. This worries me as much as the government secret doings.

    • Tommy cunningham

      Only 1/3 of population participated in the founding of this republic , others remained loyal to England or didn’t care . If only 1/3 took back goverment and restored it to a Constitutionally limited goverment as it should be that would be 100 million+, we could vote those out who don’t follow the constitution, admendmendto strip powers from the federal goverment and return them to the people and states where seat of power is suppose to be, after all it was the states that created the federal goverment and only the States can amend the Constitution. Example if 3/4 of the states decided to get together to propose a amendment then ratify it to force Fed goverment to operate on a balanced budget they could, only the state goverments need be involved. Nothing congress, president or courts could do about it. This power resides with the States only.

    I thought the DHS are his secret police. If as the President says the war in terror is over then why do we need this overkill of domestic prying??? Simple, it’s not for terror it is to target dissent. Does anyone think targeting of constitutionalist groups stops with the IRS?? Aulinsky said, “You don’t deal or debate with the opposition, you crush the opposition. You isolate opposition and portray them as fringe and extreme.”
    Why do you think we live in a world that expecting the government to actually follow the constitution and operate within the revenues it collects (or less) is considered radical and extreme. We are in serious trouble and heading towards civil war which is what they want if they can’t disarm the public.

    Clearly it is time for out of step Senators like John McCain and Lindsey Graham to retire. Obama said the last thing they be doing is listening to our phone calls through a program like this – I guess he missed the report to ABC news by people working for the NSA — That they listen to phone calls between soldiers in Iraq and their wives – listening for phone sex – to entertain themselves! Talk about invasion of privacy! Whoops I guess they were too busy to look for the terrorist! Pres. says were no longer involved in a war on terror – Yet he feels Compelled to enforce the Patriot Act – on steroids to infringe on our constitutional rights with warrantless search and seizure! WAKE UP AMERICA!!!

  • Zeropoint123

    It’s so hard to believe that there are so many millions of really stupid people who believe and trust this administration. It couldn’t get any clearer especially in light of all the recent scandals. Where there’s smoke there’s fire!!!
    Why are these people so dumb? Is it genetic, environmental, drug related? What?

  • TOB

    TRUST? TRUST? How can ANYONE TRUST an administration that LIES ABOUT EVERYTHING? OBammy is a LIAR, Biden is a FOOL, Hillary is a LIAR, Attorny General is a LIAR, NSA Chief a LIAR. IRS a Liar. HHS a LIAR. Plus a number of others who haven’t been discovered YET. YES I think we can TRUST THEM when they are all IN THEIR GRAVES six feet under and only then

    Pandering to fear is by the Bush administration is what got us to this point. I’m sure Obama is really worried that people are reading this political garbage. There is nothing more important than tracking the readers of personal liberty . What a hot bed of interlectrual thinkers.
